(seated left), Walton County Administrator Ronnie Bell (center, at board), and DFS City
Manager Kim Presnell, (seated at right).


City, county meet to


map out police


dispatch service


By Bruce Collier
DeFuniak Springs City,
Manager Kim Presnell, City
Marshal Mike Adkinson,
Walton County Administra-
tor Ronnie Bell, and County
Emergency Response Divi-
sion (ERD) Director Ed
Baltzley met on August 21
at the Emergency Opera-
tions Center (EOC) in DeFu-
niak Springs.

Along with various EOC, po-
lice, and county personnel,
they discussed thlp financiall
and logistical details of the
ERD's proposed assumption
of emergency and adminis-
trative dispatch service for
the DeFuniak Springs Police
Department (DFSPD).
The meeting came at the
request of Presnell. Accord-
ing to Presnell, Walton
County Sheriff Ralph
Johnson informed her and
Mayor Harold Carpenter in
July of the WCSO's "desire
for the City of DeFuniak
Springs Police Department
to work towards doing their
own dispatching."
The above statement
comes from a letter Presnell
sent to Johnson on Aug. 8.
That letter requests that the
sheriff continue to provide
dispatch .service "until such
time as we have the neces-
sary equipment in place, or
can make other arrange-
ments for such service."
WCSO has been providing


Darrell Barnhill

announces

school board,
candidacy
Darrell Barnhill, a long
time resident of District Five
is seeking re-election to the
Walton County School Board.
He has, during his tenure,
attended over 400 school
board meetings, a 96 percent
attendance record. His
conscientious work at these
meetings has resulted in a
school district that is ranked
"A" by the state of Florida. A
leader in education, his
tireless effort has resulted in
8 of the 12 schools earning a
rank of "excellent" in student
achievement.
Darrell was a moving force
in construction of new
schools to meet the growth
experienced over the last 8
years. He initiated the
expansion of Bay Ele-
mentary School, retaining
the flavor of the old school


telephone and dispatch ser-
.vice for the DFSPD under an
agreement with the city,
dated November 25, 1980.
Under the terms of that
agreement, it "shall remain
in full force and effect for a
period of one year and may
be renewable thereafter at
the option and agreement of
both parties herein."
Presnell's Aug. 8 letter re-
quests renewal of the agree-
ment.
As of the Aug 21 meeting,
Presnell said she had not re-
ceived any response to her
letter from Johnson.
The hour-long meeting
was mostly devoted to list-
ing itemized costs to be in-
curred by the transfer of ser-
vice to ERD. The total figure
arrived at, which all parties
conceded to be preliminary
and subject to change, was
$198,339.
Of that figure, approxi-
mately $177,000 would go to
salaries for four dispatchers,
with another $16,000 for
overtime. The remaining
funds would go for training,
equipment, uniforms, and li-
cense fees.
Adkinson and Bell agreed
that four dispatchers was
the minimum needed, and
that six would be "optimum."
According to Adkinson's fig-
ures, dispatchers received
some 14,500 calls in the last
year.
All expressed concern for

Presnell said she would
bring the matter to the city
council at the Aug. 22 bud-
get workshop. Bell said that
the earliest possible date for
the Walton County Board. of
County Commissioners
(BCG) to vote on the matter
- is September 12.
Baltzley said that the hir-
ing should ideally be accom-
plished by October 1, to al-
low adequate training time.'
"It could be crunch," he said.
A representative of the
DFSPD said that he had re-
ceived calls from former dis-
patchers expressing an inter-
est in working under the
new system.
By law, the positions musf
be advertised and a hiring
process followed. It was
agreed that the DFSPD
should be a part of the inter-,
view and hiring process, and
that the dispatchers be hired
under a three-year contract
of employment.

Also discussed at the meet-
ing were various technical
and logistical details-in-
volved in the changeover.

annual


salaries
By Patrick Casey
The Walton County School
Board met on Monday,
August 21, at the Tivoli
Administrative Complex
to discuss a variety of items
including a significant 11
percent pay raise for
instructors.
The starting salary for a
new teacher in Walton
County will be $32,500 for an
instructor with a bachelor's
degree and $34,200 for an
instructor with a master's
degree. The raise works out
to a $3,400 increase for all
instructional personnel.
High school supplements
were also increased for
schools--- from $25,500
to $27,500 for those involved
as coaches, 'band directors,
and sponsors. Administrative
salaries were also
adopted for the new year
with the base salary for an
administrator with a
bachelor's degree at $59,050
and an administrator with a
master's degree at $60,450.
The Walton County School
Board renewed their contract,
with the Walton County
Sheriffs Office to provide
School Resource Officers at'
each middle and high school,
including one at Walton
Academy. The SRO staff
consists of nine experienced
and trained deputies. In
cooperation with the Sheriffs
office, the district,pays a
portion of the deputy's salary
and provides overtime
compensation and some
training and equipment
costs.
The board approved
several contracts for
supplemental education
services and approved trip
requests and schedules for
middle, and high school
.sports, including golf, cross
country, volleyball and

Biodiesel may


offer potential for


local alternative


fuel industry


By Bruce Collier
Alabama Biodiesel Corpo-
ration hosted an informa-
tional meeting Aug. 16 at the
Paxton Agricultural Center.
Biodiesel is a fuel made from
vegetable or animals fats,
which is blended with diesel
in varying degrees. The most
common form is B20, a mix-
ture of 20 percent biodiesel
and 80 percent petrodiesel
fuel. Biodiesel can also be
used in a pure form, B100.
Farm and industrial
equipment, some trains, and
military vehicles are begin-
ning to use the B20 blend.
Research continues on the
advantages and disadvan-
tages of the fuel, including its
efficiency and longterm effect
on the environment.,
The focus of this meeting
was on the possible opportu-
nities for area farmers to con-
tract to supply "feedstock,".
the oil from which biodiesel
is made. Biodiesel can be
made from soy, canola, and
sunflower seed oils, as well as
recycled animal fats.
About 40 people attended,'
including farmers, political
candidates, and state offi-


cials, including Representa-
tive Don Brown.
Richard Campo, president
of Alabama Biodiesel, was;
unable to attend in person,
but spoke and took question
via cell phone and speaker...,
Also present was Bruce
Ward, Walton County Exten-,
sion director. Ward acted as
moderator and took a num-:
ber of technical questions
from the audience. .
Alabama Biodiesel is lo-
cated in Moundville, Ala-
bama. When operations be-,
gan last year, the plant was
producing 6,000 gallons of
biodiesel a day. The rate has.
'increased to 60,000 gallons-
per day. The plant produces'
and sells the fuel.
Campo characterized the.
biodiesel industry as "very,
viable," citing its potential
benefits in reducing depen-:
dence on foreign oil, moder-
ating fuel prices, and the ef-
fect of lower fuel costs on the'
supply chain of goods trans*:
ported by truck in the United
States.
Campo emphasized that

Taking control


of animal


control


By Leigh Strickland
In response to public.
concern, the Walton
Courity Board of County
Commissioners has taken
steps to bring the sheltering
of animals collected by
Walton County animal
control, officers back to
Walton County. If approved
by the board, a new shelter
will be located on Rock Hill
Road, about two miles from
U.S. 331.
At one time, animal,
control was done by the
Humane
Society in Walton County,
but in 2001, the
board decided to advertise a
request for proposals
for animal control services.
They received
three responses. These were
from the Humane Society
of Walton County, PAWS of
Okaloosa County and
Animal Control Services of
West Florida, .run by
veterinarian Todd Andersoni
and located in Chipley.
Assistant County
Administrator Shirl
Williams said, "We requested'
proposals and there was a
review committee and they
reviewed all three proposals
and his just seemed to be the
best for financial
reasons and he had the
facilities to house the
animals.. He was a
veterinarian. He could go
ahead and take care of them.
With the Humane Society,
whenthey had a sick animal,
they had to take it to the vet."
A contract between
Walton County and Animal
Control Services of West
Florida was approved by the
Walton County Board of
County Commissioners at
their February 12, 2002
meeting. That contract, for
the sheltering of animals
collected by Walton County's
animal control officers, was
to begin on April 1, 2002 and
cost the county $35 per
animal. The possibility of
sheltering the animals in
Walton County was
discussed then, but was
considered by some to be
more costly.
Public outcry against
taking animals out of
the county soon began. A
petition presented to
the commissioners at their
February 25, 2003
meeting contained 200


signatures of people who
wanted animal control
services to remain with
Anderson iii
Chipley. Another petition,
presented at the May 13,
2008 meeting, contained over
2,300 signatures of people
who wanted animal control
services to return to
Walton County.
Williams said, "Probably
about, three years ago,
maybe four, there was an
outcry from the public to
have our animal control
within the county instead of
sending the animals outside
the county. So, the board
put together a committee
and we looked at some
different sites in the county,
some county-owned property.
The committee wanted to get
something that's central
and close to the highway, so
that people would be
willing to come and
volunteer, they'd be willing to
come and look at the puppies
and maybe adopt some. We
looked at some property that
was out on Hwy. 90. It's
called Stonehenge. It used to
be a greyhound kennel.
We looked at doing some
renovations on that, leasing
it for a long period of time.
We looked at some old county
clay pits. We started
contacting landowners to see
if they wanted to donate
some property."
A landowner in the Rodk
Hill Road area
responded. "Sam Shine, who
owns a lot of acreage out
there, offered us 20 acres as
long as we use it for an
animal shelter. Before we
closed on it and accepted the
deed, we checked with the
planning director to be suie
that it was zoned properly for
an animal shelter. He
gave us a letter and said that
it was considered a civic use
and it was zoned correctly f i
it."
The design process then
began. "The committee went
to Santa Rosa County and
looked at their facility
and then individually went
and looked at some
otherfacilities. They got in
mind what they'd like to
see. They got together and
brainstormed about what
they would need. We've
planned some classrooms

Freeport residents injured


in South Walton Collison


By BRUCE COLLIER
Two Freeport residents
were injured, one critically, in
a collision at the intersection
of U.S. Hwy. 98 and CR-30A
on August 17. Two other ve-
hicles were also involved, but


none of their occupants were
injured.
Florida Highway Patrol
(FHP) investigating trooper
J.C. Leib reported that a ve-
hicle was traveling west on
Hwy. 98, attempting to make
a left turn onto CR-30A.


The driver of the vehicle
was Mary Lou Carroll, 57, of
Freeport.
A second vehicle was trav-
eling east on Hwy. 98 in the
inside left lane. The driver of
that vehicle was Gerald T.
Norris, 72, also of Freeport.
The light for east and west-
bound through traffic was
green, while Carroll's lane
had a red arrow.
Two other vehicles were
traveling north on CR-30A.
Both had stopped along the
"stop bar" at the intersection
with Hwy. 98, in the outside
left turn lane.
One vehicle had two occu-
pants, Terry Lee Stitt, 43, and
Collin Stitt, 8, both of Free-
port. The other vehicle was
driven by John C. Ritch, 33,
of Santa Rosa Beach.
As Norris attempted to


proceed through the intersec-
tion, Carroll reportedly at-
tempted to make a left turn,
bringing her vehicle into his
path.
The two vehicles collided,
and Carroll's vehicle pushed
Norris' vehicle 66 feet north,
causing it to strike Stitt's ve-
hicle, which in turn was
pushed backward into Ritch's
vehicle.
Carroll was airlifted to
Sacred Heart Hospital in
Pensacola, and Norris was
transported to Sacred Heart
Hospital on the Emerald
Coast. ,
No one else was injured.
The accident was not alco-
hol-related. All persons in-
volved were reportedly wear-
ing seatbelts except Carroll.
Charges are listed as pend-
ing.

have been the cause of a

Dear Walton County Residents:
The members of the South Walton Professional Fire Fighters
Association have a very unique opportunity to help a friend to be -
elected as a Walton County Commissioner.
Herman Walker, Republican for County Commission District 2, has
been a true friend of Firefighters and all First Responders for many
years. Herman L. Walker began in 1998, by representing Firefighters
as a former County Commissioner. Herman Walker supported the
South Walton Firefighters by researching vital information to prove
cost-efficiency and greater service to the citizens of South Walton
through the integration of the Fire Department, and Emergency
Medical Services, that has since proven very successful.
Throughout the years, he has never lost the vision, or the passion of
helping others, and supporting your public service needs. Mr. Walker
supported the construction project of the Courthouse Annex, Health
Department, Library, and Sheriff Sub-station and the building of the
new Sacred Heart Hospital in South Walton.
Herman L. Walker's 100% voting record and strong advocacy for us
has established an impeccable record for us to measure him.
For the above stated examples, and years of friendship, we strongly
recommend and whole heartily endorse Herman L. Walker for Walton
County Commissioner District 2.
I'm asking you to support, and vote to elect Herman L. Walker as
County Commissioner on September 5th, 2006.
This is our chance to elect someone that will listen to our issues and
represent us all at the county level.
Respectfully,

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


PERSONAL COMMENTS



EDITOR'S COMMENT


The prescription for a terminal plan


By RON KELLEY

Not to put too fine a point on it, but the new prescription
drug plan and America's policies on direct-to-consumer ad-
vertising are the worst things to ever happen to modern
medicine in this country. To make it worse still, the
government's tactics to prevent people from ordering the
same drugs cheaper from Canada and other places are noth-
ing less than shameful.
The reason that prescription drugs cost so much has noth-
ing to do with the cost of producing the medicine. It doesn't
have much to do with pure research either.
Few drug companies are searching for cures. Why would
they? That would put them out of business. Cure a disease
and no one needs a pill to treat the symptoms. Most of the
research that's done is in learning how to redesign the same
drug over and over again and charge bigger prices for each
generation- even when older, less expensive drugs are still
just as effective, and sometimes safer.
The biggest factor in the cost of medicine is the billions of
dollars spent in national advertising campaigns whose pur-
pose is to convince you to tell your doctor what brand of pill
you want. People prescribing their own medications is just
bad medicine, but it has now become the American Way.
Robert M. Center, a professor of internal medicine at the
University of Alabama School of Medicine, says, "Direct-to-
consumer drug advertising works very well for pharma-
ceutical company profits, but not for the public health.
"Drug advertising results in more costly prescriptions. Few
inexpensive drugs are advertised on TV. The commercials
don't educate patients. Rather,,they create a demand for a
product based on an effective commercial rather than the
patient's medical need. Direct-to-consumer ads should be
banned. Doctors and patients have much to gain. Only the
pharmaceutical industry has anything to lose."
That sounds .like a bad deal for drug companies, but it's
important to remember that if you don't spend millions ad-
vertising Lipitor or Nexium, you don't need to make back
those millions plus a huge profit.
No one has yet told me why American drug companies
insist that Americans have to pay more for the same drugs
available in Canada and other places at much lower prices
or why Americans who try to buy their medicines from
Canada are considered criminals.
America is only one of two countries in the world that al-
lows direct-to-consumer advertising. The other country is
already considering banning it.
The solutions won't be quick or easy, but Americans must
have relief.
After careful consideration, I have to agree with Sen. Bill
Nelson, whb said that Americans should be allowed to or-
der prescription drugs from Canada, at least until the new



Editor,
We are writing this letter, as a follow-up letter, regarding
the Bush Prescription Drug Bill that became effective as of
2006. We made every effort to give the senior citizens fac-
tual information so that they could have their choice. This
month will be the first eight months of this year and, for the
most part, Medicare will allow the senior citizen's only the
first $1,500.
The senior citizens have had to spend $750 plus a monthly
premium that can vary from $37 per month, upward to no
end in sight. At this point, most of those that chose to pur-
chase the Bush Prescription Drug Bill will now have to spend
an additional amount of $3,600 before Medicare will pay any
additional money for drugs.
Those senior citizens, have found that it is too expensive.
They may chose to cancel the program by refusing to con-
tinue paying the monthly premiums, plus any of the $3,600.
Most senior citizens chose not to accept the so-called Bush
Perception Drug Program, simply because their past insur-
ance programs were in effect, better and less expensive.
The corporations, insurance companies, churches (combine
church and state), for-profit hospitals, drug stores and many
others, rather than have the senior citizens receive a suffi-
cient and meaningful Medicare Drug Program.

Medicare drug program is fixed to bring prices down.
According to Associated Press, since Nov. 15, more than
37,000 prescription drug shipments have been seized by U.S.
Customs and Border Protection.
Nelson said the Food and Drug Administration assured
him last year that personal drug shipments from Canada
would not be seized, and that only mass quantities intended
for the black market would be confiscated. That has turned
out to be a complete falsehood.
News stories abound with instances where life-saving
drugs ordered fromn Canada just didn't arrive and American
citizens were suddenly faced with what to do when their
own government would rather they be sick or even die, rather
than save a dollar on the medicine they need. What should
a person do when their government shows no concern for
their health or well-being?
Nelson has now asked the Senate Homeland Security and
Governmental Affairs Committee to investigate the matter.
"We've got to keep the pressure on," he said.
Under the Bush administration, it is now illegal to import
prescription medicine into the United States. The FDA says
the shipments are unsafe because patients cannot be sure
of their safety and effectiveness, but Nelson said Canada
operates under the same drug manufacturing guidelines as
the U.S.
New legislation to prohibit the government from seizing
any more medicine from Canada has passed the Senate but
still needs approval from House. Nelson says that's only part
of the solution.
He said the Medicare drug plan is "a sellout to the phar-
maceutical industry" because it doesn't allow the U.S. to ne-
gotiate for lower prices through bulk purchases. Nelson filed
a bill earlier this year that would allow Medicare to negoti-
ate bulk purchase discounts, but admits it probably won't
pass.
Another major problem is the fact that the new Medicare
plan stops reimbursements for drugs once a recipient has
spent $2,250 in a year and doesn't pick up again until $5,100
has been spent.
Nelson said, "You take that savings to the United States
government and use that savings to reimburse seniors when
they hit that doughnut hole..It's common sense."
Aha! Now I think we have finally arrived at the heart of
the matter. Nelson is trying to apply logic and common sense
to an industry and administration who have shown no ap-
preciation for either one.
Drug company spokespersons say their advertising helps
educate the public about possible ailments they might not
have known they had and the potential medicines to fight
such maladies. They say they are saving lives.
I can see it now "Hey Doc, I didn't know I was sick until
I saw this commercial and now I already know which medi-
cine I need for it!" ii a'" i

Editor,
Roddy Harrison used to say, "You can take a good teacher
and a group of children and have quality education under a
shade tree," and "An excellent class can be taught in most
subjects with just an ear of corn." I believed him.
Teaching tools help, a nice classroom helps, but education
is personal between the teacher and the child. When you
hurt the teacher, you hurt education, you hurt the child.
Do you have a reason for doing it?
Why are good teachers at Paxton hurting?

Editor,
The primary election is just around the corner. Some com-
munities will be promoting political rallys wherecandidates
are invited to speak.
To all who are seeking office, let me offer a bit of advice.
We already know you are honest, God-fearing, patriotic,
hard-working, are for mother, freedom and democracy, etc.,
etc., etc.
What we voters want to know is what you can realisti-
cally do for the county, if you are seeking a county office.
Don't give us pie-in-the-sky, give us facts and a plan for ac-
tion.
School board members generally just rubber-stamp a su-
perintendents recommendations. At least, that is the case
in small counties. Historically, superintendents have had a
strangle' hold on personnel and I doubt it has changed a
whole lot. Board members can only turn down a superin-
tendents recommendation for "cause" and most school board
members don't have enough imagination to come up with a
"cause," so they just go along. It is easier for them that way.
Boards of county commissioners,are different. They don't
have a superintendent who lays out the game plan. They
lay out their own and, to put a plan in motion, at least three
of the five members must vote "aye." Being an effective
county commissioner requires a lot of time, energy, work
and generous helping of knowledge. The BCC is involved in
some way with nearly everything public that happens in
the county, other than the school system. That covers a lot
of territory. They are so much involved with roads that in
years past, they were sometimes referred to as "road com-
missioners" by their less-informed constituents.
The big thing with rural dwellers is indeed roads, specifi-
cally paving existing dirt roads, most of which have been
here since the county was formed and settled, and that was
well over a hundred years ago.
A notice in the August 3 Herald indicated the school sys-
tem intended to raise its property tax levy again. The school
board seems addicted to ad valorem or property tax. My most
recent tax bill showed the schools get a larger share than
the BCC already. The schools need to economize, and they
should start with administrative salaries. Futhermore, a
sales tax should be considered.
The BCC should not cut taxes in the near future. I know
it sounds nice in an election year to talk about cutting taxes,
but the infrastructure needs, including roads, are too great,
and these are responsibilities of the BCC.

Editor,
It's that time of year again, everyone wants your vote.
Promise after promise, they'll get the job done, but they never
do. Those politicians who are walking Wal-Mart parking lot,
or who ride out to your house and don't even know you, that's
a waste of your time and mine. Where I live in District 2, I
and my neighbors, such as Ed Armbruster, have tried to get
something done about our road (Beetohoven Circle), but noth-
inghas h happened. Th i is no longer a private subdivision,
and even if it was, let me tell you something. Last year,
Marrilyn Mays' school bus got stuck in the sand, the post
master has issues with our roads out here. The city was nice
enough to bring water out here, but of course, to do that they
had to dig up our roads and they halfway make them driv-
able again.
What's so funny though is, when we built our house out
here, we had to pull so many county permits, and have county
inspections, and go by their codes and do things their way,
but when you want something in return, forget about that.
I look at the record, if you were already in office and didn't
do your job, see ya!!! That's for everyone who holds any of-
fice. I have lived here for 26 years and have seen people
come and go.'
We want people like Mildred Wilkerson, who are in their
positions for the right reasons, who I have called at home
and got answers within 24 hours. So it doesn't matter to me
what the position is, we don't care about mud-sling, we just
want the job done without excuses.
So, if you can actually do something about our roads, that's
great, do it. Believe me, we will know it, you won't have to
come tell us. One more thing, no response is necessary, un-
less you feel guilty. From the washboard road crew. Thank
you.

Editor,
It is frustrating media accuracy is 90 degrees out of phase
relative to who was directly responsible for starting the cur-
rent conflagration in the Middle East.
Hezbollah is being branded as a "terrorist" group which
sparked the crises by "kidnapping" two Israel soldiers from
Israel territory. This concept is entirely bogus for they were
captured inside Lebanon after crossing the border and en-
tering the Lebanese village of Aitaa al-chaab.
The capture of these infiltrators into Lebannon was re-
ported by a number of reputable international press ser-
vices soon after the incursion, including the German (DPA),
AP, AFP from France and UPI of Arabia. To paraphrase, all
clearly stated that Hezbollah had captured two Israel sol-
diers during a clash across the border in southern Lebanon
which prompted a swift military reaction from Israel into it
neighbor to look for them.
Truth conquers all things (Vincit Omnia Veritas)!

Ground breaking ceremony
at Mossy Head Schools ite .

Walton County School District will hold its-ground-:"
breaking ceremony Friday, Aug. 25, at 8:30 a.m. at the
Mossy Head.school site in Mossy Head, Florida. The
public is invited to attend. Mossy Head school is being
constructed as a kindergarten through fifth grade school
with future capacity to serve students through the
eighth grade. Site work is currently underway.

LOCAL CHURCHES are united in announcing that the
Kelly Green Crusade will be held September 17 at 5:30 p.m.,
and September 18-20 at 6:15 p.m. in the Walton Senior High
School football stadium.
Green is known across the country and preaches crusades
which have included crowds of over 40,000. Green states,
"What people really need is a word of hope about life, and
about what life is." Green said "I tell people that Jesus is in
the life changing business, that Jesus died and arose from
the dead so that He could change people's lives, no matter
where they live or what their background is."
A youth rally will be held in the Lakeyard, Saturday
evening, prior to the crusade, from 7-8:30 p.m.

and a place for people to come
in and get the animals and
have some interaction with
them. So, we had a
preliminary design and then
we hired an architect and an
engineer and they engineered
the site for stormwater runoff
and septic tank and designed
the building. The design
is finished, the engineering is
finished. The septic
tank permit has been applied
for. The bids are out. The bids
close at the end of this month.
They'll review the bids and
the best contractor will be
chosen. If the board approves
it to go forward then we'll
have to apply for our building
permit and get ready to
build."
The project has met with
several obstacles. The Walton
County Planning
Commission recently decided
to recommend that the
county deny the project
approval and area residents
are concerned about the effect
the facility would have on the
neighborhood. "They voted to
recommend that the county
deny the project because they
felt like it didn't fit in with the
neighborhood out there,"
Williams said.
"There are some neighbors
out there who. have
some concerns about noise,
odor, the septic tank,
the water, but we have to
meet Health Department


FROM FRONT
standards for the septic tank,
Northwest Florida
Water Management District
for the well. They're worried
that the septic system that
we have for the waste
will leech into the ground and
the drinking water, but
the Health -Department
makes sure that doesn't
happen. We have to control
the storm water. We have to
have buffers. So, we're willing
to meet with the
landowners and see what else
we can do to try to alleviate
their concerns. We're going to
do everything we can.
They argued that it's
commercial, but it's not
commercial. The land use
category allows civic uses and
civic uses~ are public and
municipal buildings. There
won't be any kind of
commerce going on there at
all. It's going to be a really
nice looking building. It's
going to be something to be
proud of."
According to Williams,
staff will be meeting with
the neighboring property
owners on August 29. The
issue will be back before
commissioners at their
September 12 meeting.

If approved, Williams said
it should be finished "about
18 months from the end of
September," and will cost
taxpayers "about $2 million."

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, AUGUST 24, 2006


By LEIGH STRICKLAND
The water works system in
Mossy Head is
nationally recognized and
until recently had won almost
every honor awarded by the
Florida Rural Water
Association. That was until
last Thursday night when
Wanda Patterson, longtime
employee of Mossy Head
Water Works, was named the
Florida Rural Water
Association's Operator of the
Year.
At a small celebration held
in the Mossy
Head Community Center,
FRWA President Bruce
Morrison presented the
award to Patterson. "Rural
water really
does a great job for
communities," Morrison
said. "Congratulations," he
told Patterson, "" -hope
that you're in the rLinning for
another one."
1; Mossy Head Water Works
president Tom Terrell
said, "We're all super proud of
Wanda." >.xemn
Patterson has beeh with
the system for nearly
a decade. Terrell said,
"Wanda came to us eight or
nine years ago. We had a lot
of difficulty getting a class C
operator. It was virtually


"MOSSY HEAD is a small system. We don't have a lot of
money," Mossy Head Water Works president Tom Terrell said,
as he presented Wanda Patterson with a bag of small gifts
from her friends at Mossy Head Water Works.


impossible for us to find one
willing to come this far out.
Wanda said she would come
as an interim. That was nine
years ago.
Patterson also manages
and operates the
Baker, Florida, water system
and is a backup operator for
the systems in Milligan and
Holt, other small
Okaloosa County
communities.
a "She's always ready,"
Terrell said. "She's
always three steps ahead.
What I gathered from the
award committee, .she was
the hands-down favorite."
"I don't deserve this,"
Patterson said. "I have
so many people that help me
and support me."
Mossy Head Water Works
has now won every award
given by the FRWA. Terrell
said, "We've got 'em all,
we've got 'em all."

OFFICIAL BOARD MINUTES
January 26, 1999 Regular Meeting
Mr. Elliott Varnum, Mr. Larry Kelly, and Mr. John Duncan, Department of Transportation (DOT), appeared before the
Commissioner and informed them that DOT is planning some reorganization of their District 3 Field Offices. Mr. Kelly
explained that some DOT Offices will be closing and some will be consolidated. He further explained that the DeFuniak office
will remain open with some expansion and relocation being considered.
Mr. Kelly stated that a 29 acre site has been located on U.S. Highway 331 South, approximately five miles south of I-10. Mr.
Varnum requested a determination of suitability on the property and stated that the property needs to be rezoned to Industrial
and requested authorization to proceed under the guidelines of a minor development.
Mr. Varnum, Varnum and Associates, stated that before beginning the acquisition process, DOT requires a commitment from
the Walton County Board of Cominissioners in support of the zoning change.
Motion by Commissioner Walker, second by Vice-Chairman Butler, to adopt a resolution in support of the Department of
Transportation's relocation to Walton County and the construction of DOT's District 3 Operation Site, which will be used as a
public facility, and supporting a change from Estates Residential to Industiral. Ayes 5, Nayes 0. Ryan Aye, Infinger Aye, Paul

Motion by Commissioner Walker, second by Commissioner Infinger,,to grant a determination of suitability for the 29 acre
parcel of property, located on U.S. Highway 331 South, for the Department of Transportation Office and warehouse to be
located and declare it as a minor pr..:'jccr ,. es 5, Nayes 0. Ryan Aye, Infinger Aye, Paul Aye, Walker Aye, ButlerAye..'-

What happened to the commitment approval?



PRESENT BOARD DENIES D.O.T.
Resulting in loss of economic development of a clean industry and jobs
relocating away from Walton County.


D.O.T. LEFT HOLDING THE BAG
On 29 purchased acres after donating the present District 3 field office to
the City of DeFuniak Springs and being denied the previous commitment
... this can't be good for Walton County's relationship with D.O.T.


If DOT was located on 331 their awareness of the traffic would become
DOT and Walton County's problem to fix.

"New businesses and

infrastructure needed to

professionals, military
personnel and retiring
seniors.
"Getting U.S. 331 four-
laned must be our top
priority, not only because it
would enhance our overall
economy, but because it is a
critical safety issue. The safe
and orderly evacuation of
south Walton during severe
weather is absolutely vital to
the well-being of the public.
No one can accomplish this
alone. Because of this, all
commissioners must work
together with state and
federal lawmakers to develop
funding solutions to all of our
critical transportation
needs.
"Protecting our natural
resources, unique coastal
dune lakes, our fresh water
rivers and streams, the Bay,
the Gulf and the wildlife that
that inhabit our county is
another area of paramount
importance. God has placed
this beautiful bounty in our
care, and it is our duty and
responsibility to be good
stewards of it.
"We .are one county and
while some try to highlight
our differences in terms of
north and south, I believe
that we have more


similarities than differences.
We all want to live in a nice
community, raise our families
in a safe environment, have
decent, good-paying jobs and
enjoy recreational and
cultural activities. Every
community in Walton County
has its own different and
unique needs and all require
careful consideration and
decisive action by the
commission as a body.
"Finally, I believe that
accountability must be the
cornerstone on which we
build a new foundation of
trust with all citizens. The
people have a right to expect
that we keep spending in
check and develop ways to
increase efficiency and
productivity at all levels of
county government, without
raising taxes.
"A county commissioner
who serves the people of
Walton County must be
accountable, honest, ethical
and fair and should always
remember that an elected
official cannot rule, they can
only serve," she said.
"As your county
commissioner, my promise is
to be accessible, to listen and
consider every issue, and to
always act in the best interest
of all the people of Walton
County."

His innovative approach
to fiscal management has
provided funding at the
right time for critical needs
of the community. With his
leadership and budgeting
skills, the board was able
to save funds each year to-
wards future needs. The net
result was school building
without borrowing. This ap-
proach saved the taxpayers
of Walton County thousands
in interest payments.
Another benefit of the

depends on diesel, is "the

but added that biodiesel

needs, and cannot fully re-

Ward spoke on various
feedstocks, citing canola oil
as the best, and noted that
90 percent of the cost of
biodiesel is for the feedstock.
Labor is among the least
significant cost factors.
Currently, the closest
place from which the Ala-
bama Biodiesel facility can
purchase feedstock oil is in,
Valdosta, Georgia.
Ward said he believes

OSCAR HARRISON -

A MAN FOR THE AGES

By ROBIN NEWTON
Oscar Harrison is well-known, respected, and admired in Walton County. Born
on January 25, 1909, he was raised on a large cotton, peanut, and general livestock
farm tucked between two states. The 240-acre family farm was located one quarter
of a mile from the Holmes County line and one-quarter of a mile from the Alabama
line. The family farm was so close to Alabama that their mail used to come from
Samson. In fact, when he applied to the University of Florida, they wanted him to
pay out-of-state fees because of his Alabama address.
As a child, when he wasn't helping the family tend their open-range farm, Harrison
attended a one-teacher school. He recalls spelling matches, riddle telling sessions,
and quoting proverbs. Sometimes the teacher would scramble proverbs and have
the students try to figure them out. He gives credit to his mother for her caring,
faith, and love (and her cooking). "Leona Anderson Harrison," he said, speaking of
his mother, "had a peck of common sense, which was worth a bushel of learning."
A voracious reader since childhood, Harrison has read authors great and obscure.
But his favorite book is not that of a renowned author, but rather a thesis written by
a student of education. It's titled "Master's Thesis" and was written by Orive Gillis
in 1930. "I liked it so much, I read it twice!" said Harrison.
In 1937, he married his beautiful bride, Minnie Laird, at her family home in
Euchee Valley. A devoted wife and mother, she has always been very active in her
church. Affectionately known as 'Miss Minnie,' she served on the missions com-
mittee at the First Baptist Church.
Their 67 years of marriage produced three fine sons. Cordell attended Baptist
Seminary in New Orleans and now resides in Mary Esther, where he works in
choir robe sales. Don, a councilman on the DeFuniak Springs City Council, is a
University of Florida graduate and worked at Eglin for 34 years. Phil was a school
principal for 25 years and resides in Hattiesburg, Mississippi.
Photos of their seven grandchildren and three great-grandchildren adorn the walls
of their home, along with the numerous awards, letters of appreciation, and a Norman
Rockwell painting of a 4-H agent; a gift from his 4-H members. Harrison's most
prized possession is his letter of induction into the Florida 4-H Hall of Fame. In
2002, former Walton County 4-H agent Kim McDonald presented the award to
Harrison at the Hall of Fame ceremony in St. Augustine. The Florida 4-H Hall of
Fame Web site describes his experiences in 4-H and his service in extension. He
said, "4-H had a tremendous impact on my life because it taught me self-reliance:
to depend on myself and not others, how to win without boasting, and to make the
best better and guided me into extension work."
Harrison began his journey in 4-H when he was just a young boy. In those days,
camp was expensive. Each boy had to bring their own food for their daily meals,
including live chickens, and a whopping $5 per week. He understood that hard
work was essential to success in life, and he applied that discipline to his studies.
Harrison earned two degrees from the University of Florida, his LI (licensed in-
structor) degree in1935, and bachelor's in education two years later in 1937. His
interest in agriculture resulted in a master's degree in agriculture in 1955, and later
a degree in aerobiology in 1967.
His first positions as a teacher and a school principal provided a good foundation
for his career in the extension service. Realizing the importance of education and
leadership skills for children, he made 4-H his number one project when he began
as a county agent. As an adult 4-H agent, Harrison loved Camp Timpoochee and
attended each summer with his 4-Hers. Agents and children came from all over the
state, two to three counties bringing 200-300 children each time. All told, Oscar
Harrison spent 27 summers at Camp Timpoochee as a child and as an extension
agent.
Harrison has traveled extensively during his lifetime, almost always as a part of
his job. As an extension agent, the University of Florida sent him to New York. He
remembers well the fish market, Wall Street, and Trinity Church. He recalls stay-
ing at the Waldorf Astoria, just one floor below General McArthur after the general
was demoted by President Truman.
A grant by DOW Chemical Company enabled him to tour agriculture and related
industries in twelve Southern states. At that time, he was made an honorary citizen
of Plaquemine's Parish in Louisiana.
Over his career, Harrison worked as an extension agent in Washington, Dixie,
and Walton counties. After retiring from the extension service in 1965, he worked
for five years as a biologist at Eglin Field. He then worked for three years with
HUD iri Tallahassee and finally retired in 1972.
Today, enjoying his retirement, Harrison spends time using the woodworking
skills he learned with the boys in 4-H. He makes wooden toys and animals for
children, and has made nearly two thousand birdhouses to date. His experiences in
agriculture and his childhood farm have turned into a love of gardening. Harrison's
family "always had a good garden" and he can often be found helping his son with
his garden today.
Still tending the abundantly producing grape vines in his yard, Harrison recalls
fondly how he used these very plants to teach the farmers how to prune grape
vines. In those days, it was instrumental for an agent to encourage local farmers to
grow fruit.
Although he was too young for WWI and too old for WWII, Oscar felt a need to
serve his country. He worked diligently to get all eligible men to register for the
draft and in 1941 was awarded a certificate of appreciation for his efforts.
His concerns extended to the community and its residents and he wanted to make
sure farmers were able to stay home and tend their farms. More than once, Harrison
was the compassionate knock on the door, informing families of a son lost in the
war, and being their support when they needed it most.
Harrison has known many people over his lifetime and he prides himself on his
relationship with Odon Russell, the agriculture teacher at Paxton School, and re-
fers to him as a "very fine friend of mine."
Larry Woodham's father was "always very good to me," recalls Harrison. "He
would publish my articles in the newspaper." During Harrison's tenure with the
extension office, he wrote more than 2,100 articles and at one time wrote a column
for the DeFuniak Springs Herald.
Another good friend is Senator George Smathers. Harrison recalls helping to
elect Smathers as president of the student body at the University of Florida and
said he still receives a letter from Smathers every year.
It isn't possible to tell all of Harrison's accomplishments in his more than 60
years of service to the community. In 1956, he established the current Walton County
Fair building, tripling the number of exhibits that year. The 1969 edition of "Per-
sonalities of the South" recognized Oscar Harrison for his past achievements, out-
standing abilities, and service to the community and the state of Florida. In 1988,
he received a distinguished Service Award from the Florida Farm Bureau for work
as a county extension agent and organizing and directing the Walton County Farm
Bureau. Once a deacon at the First Baptist Church in DeFuniak Springs, he now
serves as Deacon Emeritus, and continues to serve on church committees. He is an
Ombudsman and is proud of his participation in the nursing home reform.
Harrison says he has had "a wonderful life." He came through the greatest de-
pression the world has ever known. He completed his master's degree when money
and education were not; easy to come by.
One cannot chronicle the life of someone who has been married for 67 years
without acknowledging the influence of his or her spouse. 'Miss Minnie' was the
perfect complement to 'Mr. Oscar' throughout their married life. They shared a
deep love of the land, and she worked alongside him in the garden and preserved
whatever his green thumb produced. If he grew it, she preserved it. Their pantry
shelves, loaded with jars, tell the truth of it.
Until her passing on April 25, she remained a devoted wife and mother, preparing
home cooked meals and keeping their home. Freshly-baked pies and a pitcher of
cold tea on the counter were an everyday occurrence. His advice for a successful
marriage is, "Understand each other, have a forgiving heart and solve your prob-
lems at home. Work together, play together, and stay together."
Oscar Harrison's writings display his wit and wisdom. In a piece titled "Stay
Young This Way," Harrison wrote about the art of living an abundant life.
"Counsel and stay with young people. Use,your background experience to help
youth.


Go fishing. Yes, go out into the woods and streams and back to nature. Go where
you fished when you were a kid.
Visit a host of people you once knew. Visit the school and the church where you
grew up. Go to parks and fields where you once had picnics.
Do some physical work. Doing a little physical work will help you stay young.
Outdoors work in a garden or a flower yard can do wonders for you.
Have a cookout. Get together with a group of friends and neighbors for a good
time.
Help other senior citizens. Visit them in convale it centers. Write letters for
them. Mail a letter for someone. Just help someone do something. It will help you.
Improve your appearance. Get your hair trimmed. Trim your waistline. Wear
clean clothes."
From a hard-working farm boy to a world traveler serving his fellow man, Oscar
Harrison has worked, sweated, laughed, and cried his way through over ninety
years of living. He has shown, in deed and in written word, his personal philosophy
on life and how to live it. Perhaps by following his example, by relishing the little
things and respecting the big things, anyone can stay young this way.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, AUGUST 24, 2006


BETTE HADDON shows off one of her quilts.


DFS Woman's Club


Award winning quilter presents program


At the last meeting of the
DeFuniak Springs Woman's
Club, Bette Haddon, interna-
tional award-winning quilter,
exhibited and spoke about
her art work.
Haddon's quilts are unlike
traditional quilts. Her quilts
are true works of art display-
ing depth, motion and per-


spective, all through the use
of cloth. Cloth is not always
thought of as an art medium
but under the expert hands
of Haddon, the cloth and
thread become a paint brush
in her hands.
Haddon spoke of the inspi-
'ration she had for some of her
quilts. "Fire on the Mountain"
was created through angst


she felt when finding out that
the mountain her family
lived on was on fire. Her
whimsical tie quilt emerged
from her years of tie collect-
ing.
The challenge of perspec-
tive is all it takes for her to
create her wonderful ab-
stract and moving block
quilts. The Woman's Club


members were amazed that
the backs of her quilts are as
intriguing as the fronts. The
quilting threads on the re-
verse side of the quilts from
intricate designs and pat-
terns of their own.


Haddon is a member of the
Pensacola Quilters Guild, the
Panama City St. Joe's
Quilters and DeFuniak's own
Chautauqua Quilting Club.
She has traveled extensively
studying quilting and show-


ing her quilts.
Anyone interested in join-
ing the Woman's Club or
would just like to partici-
pated in monthly presenta-
tions, contact Diane at 951-

Simply, the best of both
worlds. Tandem Air Vacuums.
By using both a Direct Air motor
and Clean Air motor- in tandem-
the Simplicity Synchrony takes
the advantages of both previous
systems and combines them to
create a vacuum with excep-
tional carpet cleaning, advanced
filtration and the convenience of
powerful on-board tools in one
state-of-the-art machine


While other companies cut
corners, We're more interested
in cleeaAiq them.
Instead of taking advantage of
cheaper overseas production, we
make all Simplicity upright
vacuums right here in America.
We have first-hand knowledge of
what makes American homes
unique and use this information
in designing, engineering and
building the Synchrony.

Pandemic Influenza:
Questions and Answers
Article 2 in a series of 7
Some of you may be wondering about several things regarding your personal lives and how to
handle a possible pandemic flu. In this article and the next we will provide you several questions *
and answers to help you with some of those unanswered questions. -
Q: What age groups are most likely to be affected during an influenza pandemic?
A: The H5N1 virus can affect a wide range of people from young children to the elderly. As with 4
most infections, those at greater risk of becoming .infected with the pandemic influenza are
infants, elderly, and those folks with underlying health conditions. But Avian Flu, should it
occur would not follow a "typical" pattern and therefore it is believed that Avian flu could infect
a greater number of healthy persons in all age groups, as they lack immunity to the new virus.
Q: Is there a risk for becoming infected with avian influenza by eating poultry?
A: The likelihood of infected poultry entering the US is very low due to the restrictions of
imports,, avian flu testing, and federal inspection programs. Poultry cooked well done should not a
be a source of infection. The Department of Agriculture requests that you cook your poultry to o
the right temperature (165' or higher for 5 minutes) and decrease the risk of cross contamination
by storing it on the bottom shelf of the refrigerator away from raw or other cooked foods. Of
course you want to remember to always wash your hands with warm v. iaer Ind soap before pre-
paring any foods, after being outdoors, after sneezing or coughing, and after handling raw meats. 4
Sanitize cutting surfaces with 1 teaspoon of chlorine bleach in 1 quart of water to aid in killing all *
bacteria. a
Q: How:do people.become infected with-avian inffluenzj virus? r .....
A: Mos.of the reported cases of the H5N1 virus in humans have resulted from the close contact *
of infected poultry or surfaces possibly contaminated withthe virus. In order for a pandemic to
occur avian influenza must change its form of virus to allow transmission from human to human.


Q: Are my pets at risk from this new H5N1 strain of avian influenza? '
A: There are reports of domestic cats becoming infected with the new strain of H5N1.
eral rule pet owners should take steps to insure that pets do not interact'with wildlife.
help wildlife and pets.


As a gen-
This will


Q: How does avian influenza spread among birds? '
SA: Infected birds shed the virus through their saliva, feces, and nasal secretions. Susceptible birds
become infected when they have contact with these excretions. Domestic poultry may become 4
infected with the virus through direct contact with infected waterfowl, other infected poultry, or
through surfaces that are contaminated. ,
Q: What drugs are available for treatment of seasonal and avian influenza? .
A: There are two drugs available for treatment. One is Tamiflu and the other is Relenza. These
can reduce the severity and duration of illness caused by seasonal flu. For cases of avian influ-
enza these drugs my improve the survival, but only if administered early. So far most of the fatal 4
cases of the virus have resulted from the effects of the virus. These effects can not be treated with
antibiotics.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, AUGUST 24, 2006


DOH recognizes August as National Immunization Awareness Month


The Florida Department of
Health (DOH) acknowledges
the month of August as Na-
tional Immunization Aware-
ness Month, stressing the
importance of receiving rou-
tine, up-to-date immuniza-
tions.
As the health care commu-
nity prepares for the start of
a new school year for stu-
dents as well as the upcom-
ing influenza season, indi-
viduals should be equally


aware of their immunization
status as well as that of their
loved ones.
"Vaccines offer safe and ef-
fective protection from infec-
tious diseases," said Secre-
tary of Health M. Rony
Frangois, M.D., M.S.P.H.,
Ph.D. "By staying up-to-date
on recommended vaccina-
tions, individuals can protect
themselves, their families
and loved ones from poten-
tially serious or life-threaten-


ing diseases."
In August, and throughout
the year, the Department
encourages citizens of all
ages to verify that all immu-
nization records are up-to-
date. The Centers for Dis-
ease Control and Prevention
(CDC) recommends that chil-
dren receive vaccines against
diphtheria, influenza, teta-
nus, pertussis, measles,
mumps, rubella, chickenpox,
polio and others. Adolescents

should be vaccinated against
influenza, hepatitis A, hepa-
titis B and meningococcal
disease, and other previously
missed vaccinations. Those
recommended for adults in-
clude vaccines against influ-
enza, pneumococcal disease,
tetanus and diphtheria.
DOH encourages Florid-
ians to contact their local
county health department or
primary care physician to
make sure their immuniza-
tions are up-to-date.
DOH promotes and pro-
tects the health and safety of
all people in Florida through
the delivery of quality public
health services and the pro-
motion of health care stan-


dards. For more information

Policies and Procedures on Retention and Promotion

General Policies

No student may be assigned to a grade level based solely on age or other factors that constitute
social promotion or administrative placement. Promotion procedures assure that students promoted
within the district can benefit from the next grade level of instruction and that those who earn a diploma
from high school have met or exceeded all the requirements described by the State of Florida and by the
Walton County School Board. Promotion decisions are based upon the following:
Progress tests
Classroom assignments and performance tasks
Daily observation
State and district tests
Proficiency in reading, writing, and mathematics
Mastery of the Sunshine State Standards as outlined in the various Grade Level Expectations; and/or
Other objective data


Students who exhibit substantial deficiency in reading skills before the end of grades one or two must
be given intensive, research-based reading instruction following identification of the deficiency. The
student must be retained if the deficiency is not remedied by the end of grade 3, as demonstrated by
scoring at level 2 or higher on FCAT Reading for grade 3. At grade 3, students with reading deficiencies
can be exempted from mandatory retention for good cause.

Good cause exemptions shall be limited to the following:
1. Limited English Proficient students who have had less than two (2) years of instruction in an English
for Speakers of Other languages program.
2. Students with disabilities whose individual education plan indicates participation in the state
assessment program is not appropriate.
3. Students who demonstrate an acceptable level of performance on either the Grade, 3 Norm
Referenced Test (NRT) portion of the FCAT or the SAT-9 alternative assessment.
4. Students who demonstrate that they are reading on grade level, as evidenced by a student portfolio.
5. Students with disabilities who have.an IEP or Section 504 Plan reflecting they have receive
intensive remediation in reading for more than two (2) years but are still deficient in reading and have been
retained at least once previously.'
6. Students who have had an AIP in reading for more than two (2) years and were previously
retained in kindergarten, grade 1, grade 2 or grade 3 for a total of two (2) years.

In grades 4-8, waiver of p,*rqmotion criteria shall be granted in a manner consistent with the good
cause exemptions outlined in State Board Rule.
Students in grades 3-4 shall pass four (4) or more academic subjects, three (3) of which must be
reading, language arts and mathematics, to be eligible for promotion .

Middle Grades Promotion Criteria
A student shall earn three academic units each year to be promoted from grade six or seven.
Academic units include language arts, mathematics, science and social studies. Prior to being promoted
from grade 8, a student must have earned three'academic units in all four subject areas. Additionally,
students must have earned three physical education'urtits prior to exiting the middle grades.
Students in Grade 7 who score Level 1 on the FCAT Reading Assessment will be retained,
regardless of their performance in their academic coursework. Recommendations for promotion or
retention to grade 8 will be made when the final FCAT scores are received. Parents will be notified in
writing of their child's retention or exemption from retention due to good cause.
Students who face retention as a result of their FCAT performance will be given the opportunity to
take the Stanford-10 before the end of the school year as an alternative assessment. Students in Grade 7
who are absent during the FCAT administration must demonstrate reading proficiency by scoring at or
above the 54th percentile on the reading section of the Stanford-10 before being promoted to Grade 8.
Grade 7 students failing to earn a score of Level 2 or above on the FCAT Reading Assessment
may be promoted for good cause if they are:

"Make a quilt to remember"


CRNC dedicating


quilt to remember its


Alzheimer residents


Chautuaqua Rehabilita-
tion and Nursing Center

the "Make A Quilt To Re-
member" project dedicated to
the Alzheimer residents of

Connie Baldwin, the day
program coordinator at
CRNC, led the project that
started in the early spring
and has now been completed.
Baldwin started by collect-
ing donations of scraps of
cloth, with help and support
from her co-workers and
resident's families. Baldwin
received some special assis-
tance from Patricia Huffman


and the encouragement of a
very supportive administra-
tive staff.
The quilt is made of many
beautiful colors and designs
and lists the names of the
residents that participated in
the program, past and
present.
Baldwin will display the
quilt at the center until Au-'
gust 31, before mailing it to'
the foundation, where it will
be displayed at many events
around the country.
The community is invited
to come out to see the quilt.
Many will see their loved
ones' name on the quilt. The
quilt will not be returned to
the facility.

Dogs chase woman into path of car


By BRUCE COLLIER
Feral dogs apparently
forced a Pensacola woman
into the path of a vehicle in
an accident that took place
the morning of Aug. 16 in
Escambia County.
Florida Highway Patrol
(FHP) investigating trooper
Eddie Elmore reported that
Rosie M. Finley, 42, of
Pensacola, was walking
west on the sidewalk near
Pipe Line Road when feral
dogs approached her "in an
aggressive manner."
Finley attempted to run
from the dogs, and ran into
the path of a vehicle travel-
ing east bound on S.R. 296.

DOH H5NI

strain

Talking

Points
:,The low-pathogenic H5N1
-strain that was detected in
Michigan is Not the highly-
pathogenic strain that we are
seeing abroad that causes ill-
ness. This low-path strain
has very little in common
with the virulent strain.
Wild birds are known to
harbor may influenza vi-
ruses, and the finding of one
or more of these viruses dur-
ing routine testing is not un-
usual. The strain found in
these swans does not pose a
health risk to humans.
Ongoing testing by agen-
cies continues and the fact
that this low-path strain was
detected during routine test-
ing, proves that testing pro-
cedures are effective.
The public should avoid
having direct contact with
wild birds. Dead bird find-,
ings should be reported at
www.MyFWC.com/bird.


The driver of the vehicle
was Samantha Glaspey, 22,
also of Pensacola. Finley
collided with the right side
of Glaspey's vehicle, and
was knocked to the ground.
Finley was transported to


Sacred Heart Hospital with
serious injuries. Glaspey
was not injured.
The Escambia County
animal control authorities
were contacted regarding
the feral dogs.


Two FWB men arrested in

separate child sex cases


The Okaloosa County
Sheriff's Office arrested two
Fort Walton Beach men
Wednesday in connection
with two separate cases in-
volving sex with a youth.
Joseph Reed, 30, of 1851
Hunt Club Dr., Building #6,
is charged with two counts of
sexual battery on a victim
under the age of twelve. In-
vestigators say Reed had
sexual relations with the 11-


year-old child on two occa-
sions in May and once in
June.
In an unrelated case,
Frank A. Hartley, Jr, 21, of
1944 Kadima Circle, is
charged with lewd or lascivi-
ous battery.
Investigators say Hartley
had sexual relations with a
14-year-old girl that he had
met over the MYSPACE.com
internet site.

Life ain't always beautiful,
but you gave it a beautifuil ride
with your big smile.
We thought of you today,
but that's nothing new.
We thought of you yesterday
and days before that too.
We think of you in silence
when we speak your name.
Your memory is our keepsake,
with which we'll never part.
God has you in his arms -
we will always have you in our
hearts.

\We miss you son.
Love. Dad and all the family.

Niceville
Ass embly
travels to
Argentina
"Get Ready for a great out-
pouring of the spirit of God"
was the prophetic message
given to Pastor Edgardo
Munoz. of"Avance Cristiano"
church in Buenos Aires, Ar-
gentina. The largest world-
wide revival of Christianity
has been underway in Argen-
tina for the past several
years. Meeting in a small
building that frequently
flooded in the Argentine
rainy season, the small
church had tripled in size
since last year. Believing the
word from God, they em-
barked on the construction of
a 7-story building in the city
with the help of the Foreign
Missions branch of the As-
semblies of God.
Niceville Assembly of God
assembled a team of 35
adults and youth, led by Se-
nior Pastor Phil Daniels, to
work on the project from July
14-22, 2006. Their task: to
lay block walls in the main
meeting room, plaster the
walls, plaster the upstairs
classroom walls and pour a
concrete ceiling. Working
from dawn to dusk is the gru-
eling schedule of a missions
construction trip, the sixth
trip for Niceville Assembly of
God to Argentina since 1998,
and the fifteenth construc-
tion Missions trip in coun-
tries from Europe to South
America since 1997.
The Youth team, led by
Outbreak Student Ministries
Pastor Tommy Brown and
assistant Pastor Nick Chisler
targeted the youth of the in-
ner city. Through thought
provoking dramas, personal
testimonies, connecting with
kids through fun activities
like face painting, clowning,
and balloon animals, the
youth reached out in genuine
love and care to engage the
children in Christianity. Ev-
ery evening, powerful ser-
vices were held in the church
facilities. The youth went
door to door inviting children
and they came out in great-
numbers, night after night.
Here are the candid re-
sponses from our youth team
on their Argentina missions
experience:
Who benefited from your
work and why?
Griffin: Everyone! The
team, the people and the
Lord.
Cameron: Not only did
those kids benefit, but we
benefited as well, there was
a genuine love between the
people that we got to experi-
ence.
Josh: The kids at the parks
enjoyed our ministry but we,
also benefited from the ser-
vice we gave.
Lindsey: Personally, it
opened my eyes to the
Argentine's lifestyle and it
gave me a new passion for
missions.
How did this trip impact
you?
Brittany: I have an even
stronger faith than before.
Josh: It showed me what it
means to have "reckless
abandonment"-how to be
fools for Christ.
Whitney: It reinforced the
truth of how blessed I am
and that I should take noth-


ihg for granted.
Maegan: I learned the need
to tune out the distractions
in my life in order to move in
tune to the Spirit of God.
Griffin: I grew spiritually
as my eyes were opened to
many things I never real-
ized.
What is the most memo-
rable experience you took
home?
Lindsey: I can still see the
children coming up to me
while I was dressed as a
clown, saying, Thank You and
giving me huge hugs and
kisses.
Whitney: We formed rela-
tionships with the Bible stu-
dents there.
Josh:It was so memorable
how happy the children were
for the attention that we
gave them.
Maegan: God moved so
powerfully in the altar


prayer time every evening.
Griffin: Playing with the
children, who were so poor,
that they used a plastic cup
for a soccer ball.
Pastor Kraig Krempa, an-
other member of the team on
his first missions trip re-
counts the impact this team
had on the Argentine archi-
tect of the church project,
who described himself as a
"Christmas and Easter"
Christian. The architect con-
fided in Pastor Kraig that he
was "blown away" that this
team of people would use up
their personal vacation time,
spend thousands of dollars of
their own money and travel
so far to work long days in
hard labor among people
they don't know.

Faith in action is the most'
powerful witness of all to the'
love of Christ.


1Be Alert-Stand Firm In Christ
By Dr. Charles Satterwhite
Pastor, Freeport UMC

I was sorry to hear in the news that Robin Williams
is struggling with alcohol addiction but happy to hear he's
put himself in a rehab program.
The report said that this is an ongoing problem for
him and that he wants to be proactive and get help early
- for the sake of his family. I applaud that attitude.
Once we have wrestled with a particular sin, a shadow
of it often seems to sit in the background of our soul wait-
ing tosee if it might stand a chance to rise again.
If we fell once, maybe we will be inclined to fall again.
Of course the devil is observing like a hawk hoping to egg
it along.
Whatever those inherent weaknesses that each of us
suffer; we should not be discouraged and we should not
feel like a failure that they still linger. That's just the way
it is the battleground of life.
How much stronger we are each day we do not fall
back. How much we should applaud God's grace for each
day of success.
But here's the thing: take nothing for granted.
Presumption is the first blush of deception. Flirting
with the weakness is like an activation button. Give it an
inch and it will most definitely take a mile.
Robin Williams has found that out as he has "sud-
denly" found himself drinking again. Believe me, some-
thing came before "suddenly."
Be wary of any old entanglements you have had with
.sin, but be confident that you do not ever have to be en-
meshed again as you be alert :
Freeport UMC is a church for allGod's people. Our
goal is to help develop you in the faith community. Come-
cooperate with God;s plan for your life. It can have a good
beginning this Sunday at 9 a.m. For Sunday School; and
10 a.m. For worship. Just ask anyoneiattending Freeport
UMC-they will tell you-God is changing them!





SJESUS LIVES!
Jesus answered, "I am the way, the truth
and the life. No one comes to the
Father except through me." John 14:6

Prayerfully ask Jesus into your heart to cleanse you
from the inside out and make you whole.
Jesus has promised us his guidance and protection along
the way, the truth of his word and eternal life if we
believe and trust in him.
Receive Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour.
He is waiting for you.

Three Walton teams will play


2006 high school football


regular
By PATRICK CASEY
Three Walton County
teams will play a pair of regu-
lar season contests on Friday
night as the 2006 Florida
High School Athletic Associa-
tion high school football sea-
son begins.
South Walton will host
Freeport in an intra-county
battle while Walton will face
the Baker Gators in the first
of six home games for the
Braves in the regular season.
Freeport was the most of-
ten mentioned opponent of
South Walton's at media day
in early August as the foe the
Seahawks would most like to
get a win against in 2006.


season
South Walton nas come close
to beating the Bulldogs, only
to fall a little short the past
two seasons.

Last year Lloyd Anderson
hooked up with Stephen
Mabry on a 20-yard scoring
pass in the fourth quarter to
help the Bulldogs pull out a
14-6 home victory. In 2004,
Lloyd Anderson snuck in
from the 1-yard line to give
Freeport a come-from-behind
22-16 victory in overtime
on the road.
The Seahawks may have
to wait until 2007 for a vic-
tory as Freeport returns a
veteran unit with a solid de-


i opens
fense that dominated Holmes
County 17-0 in the Kickoff
Classic last Friday.
South Walton defeated
Panama City Bozeman 27-7,
but will find a tougher oppo-
nent in a Bulldogs squad that
will grind drives out on of-
fense with a solid offensive
line and a stable of service-
able running backs in Josh
Thomas, Drew Farris, Logan
Caudill and James
Humphrey.
Walton will face Baker in
their regular season opener.
The Braves crushed the
Gators last season 57-7 as
Walton scored 50 points in


Friday
the first half of play.
Baker suffered thru an 0-
9 season in 2005, but should
be improved in 2006 after
a disastrous season last year.
The Gators put up a fight in
a 34-26 loss to Jay in their
kickoff
classic last Friday.
Walton has won two in a
row over the Gators, but is
only 7-9 overall against
Baker since 1976. The rivalry
has cooled since its heyday in
the 1980's and 1990's due
mainly to the two squads re-
siding in different football
classes and a downturn in
Baker's football fortunes.


WC Volleyball


season opener


HOW MANY TIMES have we all heard about the big
one that got away? Well this time, the big one was caught
and photographed. Rick Pritchett of Opelika, Alabama and
his father-in-law, Doyle Ammons, of Ponce de Leon, FL
have proof of their big fish story.
This magnificent catfish was caught on a bush hook in
the Choctawhatchee River between Bruce and Ebro in July
2006. Weighing in at 55 lbs 3ozs, this fish was an enor-
mous 46'" in length.


FREEPORTS DREW FERRIS scored on a two-yard dash
- to put the first points on the board for Freeport. The Bull-
'dogs went on to beat Holmes County, 17-0 in their season
kick-off game.


Bulldogs roll over

Holmes County


By CHUCK HINSON
After last year's loss to the
Blue Devils, head coach Jim
Anderson's pack of Bulldogs
were ready for a fight. That's
exactly what they gave the
Blue Devils. Freeport at-
tacked early and finished the
game with a 17-0 win.
But it wasn't all Freeport.
Holmes County lost 16 se-
niors. from last year's squad
who had gone 5-5. Along
with that, the Freeport de-
fense was too much, and the
Bulldogs didn't allow the
Blue Devils to cross into
Freeport territory many
times during the game.
Holmes County did man-
age to cross into Freeport's
domain, but both times plays
were driven back across the
50-yard line. In total, the
Blue Devils were able to col-
lect just 76 yards throughout
the night.
The most exciting action
took place early in the first
quarter, when Freeport
racked up a safety after Josh
Thomas took down the Blue
Devils' quarterback and
forced the punt. From that
point on, it was all Freeport
as Josh Thomas stepped up
once again when he took the
ball 32 yards for the first
score of the night.


Next play, Thomas shone
again as he got the two-point
conversion play catch from
Lloyd Anderson to take the
game to 10-0 in the bottom
of the first quarter.
With a little more than
four minutes left on the clock
in the first half, Drew Ferris
scored on a two-yard run and
the point-after was good. The
first half scoring drive would
be the only scoring of the
night.
Freeport, who finished the
season last year with a 5-5-
record, travels to face
intracounty rival South Wal-
ton.


By PATRICK CASEY
All three volleyball play-
ing schools in Walton County
opened play last week as they
took part in the Chipley High
School Invitational Volleyball
Tournament.
South Walton, which was
the only school to play early
in the week, entered the tour-
nament with an 0-2
record after dropping a pair
of matches to Baker High
School in the span of three
days.
Walton High School,-with
second year coach. Marla
Harrell, had the best perfir-
mance of the county's
three squads as they posted
a 3-1 record to earn a top six
finish in the sixteen team
event. Walton beat Holmes
County 25-15 and 25-16 in
their opening match then dis-
patched Quincy Munroe 16-
25, 25-22 and 15-10. Unlike
single regular
season contests, the tourna-
ment featured best-of-three
game formats as compared to
best-of-five games. Walton
dropped their third match to
Altha 21-25, 25-17 and 11-15.
The sixteen squads were bro-
ken into four pools of four
teams each, earning Walton
a second place finish in their
pool and a final game with
the host Chipley Tigers.
Walton, whose squad
knocked Chipley out of the
2005 state volleyball playoffs
on the Tigers' home
floor, picked up where they
left off, dispatching the Ti-
gers in two games 25-16 and

Florida returns,


but no Duke


By CHUCK HINSON
For fans of college basket-
ball, Florida State will once
again be welcoming the Uni-
versity of Florida to Tallahas-
see for the second year in a
row. The defending NCAA
champion Gators return to
the Tallahassee-Leon County
Civic Center on Dec. 3.
It will be the highlight of
the 17-h6me game season for
the Seminoles. Last year, it
was Atlantic Coast Confer-
ence rival North Carolina
that made an appearance in
Seminole territory.
However, this year North
Carolina or Duke will be
making the trip to Tallahas-
see. What this means is there
will be no two-game, definite
sell-out as has been the case

Kenseth


steals


the race
By CHUCK HINSON
Matt Kenseth bided his
time during the final laps of
the GFS Marketplace 400 in
Brooklyn, MI, on Sunday,
until he was ready. After Jeff
Gordon led the track,
Kenseth moved in on the fi-
nal lap and sealed the vic-
tory.
Kenseth said he made good
use of his pit time, taking
care of his tires. This was
also the slowing point for
Gordon, who fell behind in
the final lap.
When Kenseth crossed the
line, he solidified his hold on
second place in the Cup
standings, and now is just 58
points behind leader Jimmie
Johnson. Johnson finished in
13th place after a, tire mis-
hap, but both have clinched
a spot in the title run for the
championship.
Tony Stewart, two-time
and defending Cup cham-
pion, crossed the line in third

place and was followed by
Kasey Kahne, Mark Martin,
Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Greg
Biffle. ''
Tire problems seemed to
plague the track. Kurt
Busch had tire trouble and
Kyle Busch dropped two
spots in position after hitting
a wall and blowing a tire.

Woods


chasing


the Bear


for title
By CHUCK HINSON
It seemed that it was all
but over for Tiger Woods ear-
lier this year, what with all
the personal issues he had
been facing. However, after
his British Open win one
month ago, and his domina-
tion of the PGA Champion-
ship on Sunday, Tiger is back
in the swing of things.
Woods played nearly with-
out mistake on Sunday as he
closed with a 4-under-68 for
a five-shot victory and his
12th career win.
Woods has become the first
player in history to win at
least two majors in consecu-
tive years. But floating over-
head is Jack Nicklaus' 18
career wins, a goal that
Woods is trying to achieve
and exceed.
Woods passed Walter
Hagen, who finished his ca-
reer at 11 major titles, fol-
lowed by Ben Hogan and
Gary Player with nine wins
each, and Tom Watson, who
completed the top six spots
with eight major titles.
Woods' lead got kicked off
with a 10-foot birdie. He fin-
ished up in the same dra-
matic style with a little tap
on the 18th hole to match his
record at the PGA Champi-
onship, finishing at 18-under
270.


Once again, Woods paid
tribute to his father, Earl
Woods, who passed away
this past May.
He became the first player
to win the PGA Champion-
ship twice on the same
course. It happened the last
time in 1999 when Woods
outlasted Seigio Garcia to
win by one shot at Medinah.
Shaun Michael finished in
second place.


THE TEAM CONSISTED OF. (front row, l-r) Patten Bates, Koleman Truett, John
Stevenson, Lacy Stafford, Logan Rhodes, and Abram Hartley; second row (I to r) Steven
DePauw, Nick Wilkerson, Jeremiah Watkins, Andrew Howell, Timothy Smith, Dylan Kelly;
back row (l-r) coach Andy Watkins, manager Ricky Howell, and coach Larry Martin.

in the special games tourna-
ment at Crestview on June

the opening round on June 10
against Tri-County #2. DeFu-
niak lost that game 8-2.
On Monday, June 12, the

day, June 16, DeFuniak was
playing Destin #1 for the
right to face Tri-County #2
once again, but this time it
would be for the District 1, 7-
8-year old title.
DeFuniak played hard
throughout the contest, tying
the game in the top of the
fifth inning, only to lose the


lead in the bottom of the fifth
and then lose the contest 15-
10. DeFuniak finished the
tournament in third place.
Tri-County #2 went on to
win the title, with Destin #1
finishing second.

DeFuniak played very
hard throughout the entire
tournament. They repre-
sented the community and
the Little League Organiza-
tion well.

Coastal dune lakes


continually in jeopardy


LARGE-SCALE beach restoration work in spring 2006 on Walton County beaches, prior a
suspension order by the US. Army Corps of Engineers.


Permit reinstated August 18



Beach project



may resume early


By Dotty Nist
A reinstatement of the
permit for Walton County
and Destin's large-scale
beach restoration project,
effective Aug. 18, was
announced by the South
Walton Tourist Development
Council last week.
The unexpected
authorization to resume
work came in writing from
the U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers' Jacksonville
District, which oversees
Florida, Puerto Rico, and the
Virgin Islands.
After a number of short
delays, each following the
loss of a federally protected
sea turtle .as a result of
dredging for the project, work
on the project had been
suspended in late May by the
Army Corps. That
suspension was the result of
a fourth incidental sea turtle
death or "taking." At that
time, the Army .Copps had
notified Walton County and
Destin that there could be no
more work on the seven-mile-
long project before Oct. 1, the
start of the federal fiscal year.
The Army Corps monitors
the ;number of sea turtle
takings from all beach
restoration projects in each
fiscal year with regard to a
threshold set in the interest
of the survival of threatened
and endangered sea turtles
species.
The suspension left the
project approximately 53
percent complete, with the
five-mile western Walton
County portion about 77
percent finished and the
adjacent two-mile Destin
portion still not begun.
Walton County and Destin
officials had continued




THE POINT
WASHINGTON POST
OFFICE will suspend'
services as of Aug. 25. The
Postal Service has not
determined the long-term
status of the office at this
time. A public meeting will be
held in the near future to
provide community members
the opportunity to ask
questions and voice concerns.
Information concerning
meeting time and location
will be provided when
available. Postal customers
are asked to use the Santa
Rosa Beach Post Office until
this issue is resolved.


conversations with Army
Corps officials and with the
project corftractor, Great
Lakes Dock and Dredge, on
the subject of getting
restoration work started
again as soon'as possible.
The Aug. 18 letter from
the Army Corps, sent by
District Commander Paul L.
Grosskruger, states that
since the late May,
suspension of work, "the
Jacksonville district has
closely monitored all hopper
dredging projects being
conducted in the Gulf of
Mexico in order to track any
hopper dredge/sea turtle
interactions."
"Although sea turtles have
been taken at some of those
projects," Grosskruger
continues, "we are confident
that, with your strict
:adherence to the terms and
conditions of the...permit,
:hopper dredging at this point
can be resumed without
exceeding the Jacksonville
District (fiscal year 2006)
,take allotment..."
Among additional
conditions to be observed will
be at least 12 hours of
trawling to remove any sea
turtles from the dredging
area before work begins.
Destin and Walton County
have also conducted around-
the-clock trawling to remove
and .safely relocate sea
turtles from the dredging
area during the restoration
project. Those previous
conditions, along with all
others, are to remain in force.
"This is great news and we
are cautiously optimistic
about getting up and running
quickly," said Kriss Titus,
executive director for the
South Walton Tourist


Development Council (TDC).
With hurricane season far
from over, the protection
offered by the project's 75 to
100 feet beach widening
would be a welcome addition
for many homeowners in the
still-unrestored portions of
the critically eroded project
area.
However, following the
May 23 suspension of the
project, Great Lakes Dock
and Dredge subsequently
moved on to other work, and
the company's equipment
and personnel are now in
other areas, reported Brad
Pickel, beach management
director for the TDC. Pickle
said it is also uncertain at
this point whether the
company will have a dredge
available prior to Oct. 1.
There are also cost
considerations to be ironed
out with the contractor.
Pickel is pursuing a dialog
with the contractor, and
Walton County and Destin.
officials plan to meet for
discussions on how to
proceed in light of the Army
Corps decision.
On another front, the
spring 2006 First District
Court of Appeals decision
that invalidated the state
permit for the project will not
hinder the local governments
from proceeding, Pickel
commented. The decision
was the result of a legal
challenge by a small group of
homeowners in the project
area who opposed
restoration. Pickel reported
that the governments were
able to obtain a court stay to
keep the state permit in force
pending requests for a State
Supreme Court hearing on
the matter.


By Leah Stratmann
At the meeting last week
of the Board of County
Commissioner (BCC)
appointed Coastal Dune
Lake Advisory Board
(CDLAB) it was noted once
again that single family
home owners are the biggest
offenders encroaching on the
dune lakes and the
committee is seeking an
effective way to educate them
about the fragility of these
lakes and how best to protect
'them.

In addition to an
education campaign, CDLAB
plans to ask the BCC to
pursue special status with
both the federal and state
Departments of
Environmental Protection
due to the globally rare
status of the coastal dune
lakes, noting that if the lakes
have a unique designation,
they will be better protected
in the permitting process.
Special status would
preclude treating the rare
coastal dune lakes as just
another Florida waterway. A
motion asking the BCC to
pursue special status was
made and passed by the
advisory board
The remainder of the
meeting concerned Eastern
Lake. Representatives of the
homeowners association said
there were three lots around
Eastern Lake impacting the
lake's channel and outfall
corridor. At this time,
Eastern Lake is not open due
to the dramatic change in the
watershed.
The homeowners noted
that the county acquisition of
a Joint Coastal Permit has
been effective in allowing
county workers to dig out the
outflow corridor when
needed. The county dug a
channel after Hurricanes
Arlene and Dennis and the
water level opened, but there
was still no access to the Gulf.
It was noted there are
intermittent openings but no
infusion of salt water. The
county's opinion is that the
outflow corridor would
eventually function correctly,
but that has not happened.
Several months ago, Cliff


Knauer, a professional
engineer with Preble-Rish,
Inc. presented a plan to
homeowners and others with
an interest in Eastern Lake
that would try to bring the
lake back to where the water
lines were in October 2002
using a variety of aerial
photos to explain the plan.
Knauer pointed out that
in the early aerial shots,
there was no development to
speak of, "so Mother Nature
was doing her ,thing,
although the changes
around the lake) can be
seen. "As all of you know, the
coastal dune lakes are a,
complex and changing eco-
system and a great place to
live near," Knauer said.
The services of the civil
engineering firm were
retained by Walton County
for the specific objective of
putting the lake back to pre-
hurricane standards because
many of the houses on the
lake were coming perilously
close to flooding. Where the'
channel is currently, is on the
western edge of where the
channel was in 2002. The
objective is to make the lake
operate more likeit did
before the 2005 hurricane
season, which greatly
impacted Eastern Lake.
Since the beginning of time,
the lakes have been an ever-
changing entity, but
development and natural
weather phenomena have
had influenced nature's
design.
Knauer emphasized to the
audience that to date, no
agency action at all has been
taken and he was at the
meeting to talk to the most
directly affected
stakeholders in the health
and well being of the lake. At
this time, sand has. clogged
up the lake's outfall and the
county started digging a
channel which popped off
(discharged) and the lake
continued to rise. Currently:
there is no exchange of gulf
water to the lake and the
lake contains morefresh
water than salt water.
"In October 2002, the
standing elevation of the
water's outfall was three to
three and half feet deep." A


permittable plan is one
designed to simulate natural
lake conditions and will
ultimately create the least
delay in obtaining the
necessary permits from the
Florida Department of
Environmental Protection
and Walton County. Knauer
explained that his redesign
would probably not last more
than one or two years,
depending on hurricane
activity.
Knauer's concept included
lengthening the boardwalk
around the lake and using
the sand dredged from the
lake to create two protective
dunes of 5 feet -on one sided
and 8 feet on the other side
and changing slightly the'
course of the outflow. "We
want to distribute people tq
edge of the proposed lake
instead of dumping them on
the beach," Knauer said.'
Other concepts to discuss inl
depth included what to do
with material that comes out
of the lake or should any
action at all be taken?
"Right now, the county
has only a 33-foot easement
to the lake," he said.
Currently the outflow is
approximately 660 feet from
the Gulf of Mexico and there
is Rt the normal exchange
of fresh .and salt water.
Knauer pointed out that
historically when the lake
discharges, it discharges a
large volume of water, but
the current condition of the
lake provides no velocity.,
"There is potential to,heli
your lake." Knauer said
months ago. "I live near
Oyster Lake and it's a dead
lake as far as I'm concerned.!'
The Eastern Lake plan i*
currently in the hands of
FDEP. No information wa
available at press time as to
how long it may take for
FDEP to either approve the
plan or ask for changes. '

Homeowners at the
CDLAB meeting have
suggested the county
purchase the ,lots most
affecting the outflow corridor
and at least one of the owners
has suggested he would
interested in selling his land
to the county.


Code enforcement


board reviews policies


By Dotty Nist
Some members of the Wal-
ton County Code Enforce-
ment Board are concerned
that violations are dragging
on for several months or
more without being cor-
rected, without good reason.
Some information gath-
ered at a recent statewide
code enforcement conference
resulted in Walton County
Code Enforcement Board
member Charlotte Flynt sug-
gesting changes, in local pro-
cedures.
Flynt and fellow board
member Robert Nelson at-
tended the conference, which
they said was very informa-
tive.
Currently, citizens found
in violation by the board are
usually -given 30 days or
more to correct the violation:


If the violation is not cor-
rected, the current practice is
to bring the person back be-
fore the board for a determi-
nation whether the violation
still exists and, if so, often for
a fine or fines to be imposed.
Flynt said she learned at
.the conference that the board
is letting violations continue
too long by routinely holding
a second, separate, hearing to
fine the violator.
Earlier this year the
county commission granted
county code enforcement of-
ficers the ithority to issue
citations. Fiynt argued that,
now that the officers can
ticket violators, they should
also be able to determine
whether a violation has been
corrected by a date certain.
Then, if an officer determines
that the violation has not


been corrected by the date
previously set by the board,
fines can then be imposed by
the officer in accordance with
the previous board decision,
she explained. No automatic
second hearing need take
place for fining, she added.
Flynt also said that she
was told at the conference
that 20 days should be the
maximum time allowed for a
violation to be corrected.
Nelson added that a vio-
lator has the right to request
a second hearing for a deter-
mination on fining, but that
the board is not required to
hold the second hearing un-
less it is specifically re-
quested. He explained that
the violator is to be notified
in writing of this right.

Board attorney Bill
Wyrough commented that it
was his recollection that in
the past the board was oper-
ating in the manner recom-
mended by Flynt and Nelson.
He explained that the board
had changed to the "two step"
procedure on the advice of
Kira Coley, former county
staff attorney.
Board member David
Kramer cautioned the panel
that their primary objective
is obtaining compliance, not
collecting fines. He added
that few cases had come be-
fore the board in recent
months, so they had ample
time to hold hearings for both
violations and fines.
Board member Richard
Fowlkes commented that,
nevertheless, he saw no harm
in trying to improve the pro-
cess.
Flynt added that often
even before a case comes be-
fore the board, code enforce-
ment officers have already
been trying to get a problem
corrected for some time. She
spoke to the board's respon-
sibility to the public, espe-
cially neighbors affected by
code violations, to get viola-
tions corrected as promptly as
possible.
The board members and
code enforcement officers
plan to seek additional legal
opinions with regard to the
recommended change in pro-
cedures.
Kramer brought up a pre-
vious request he had made to
obtain a determination of
whether county code enforce-
ment policy is proactive or
reactive;, in other words, if


FROM FRONT


cases are initiated only in re-
sponse to complaints from the
public or not. He added that
if the policy is proactive, it
should be determined if there
is selective enforcement.
Tom Stein, board chair-
man, said that in response to
the request he had contacted
Walton County Growth Man-
agement Director Pat
Blackshear to set up a meet-
ing with her to get an opin-
ion. Stein said he was unsuc-
cessful in obtaining a meet-
ing, but got word from
Blackshear that the policy
question was a board matter.
Code Enforcement Coordi-
nator Kevin Hargett stated
that, with the exception of
violations involving health
and safety risk to the public,
his department's operating
policy is reactive rather than,
proactive.
Hargett explained that the
officers take complaints from
the public and investigate
them.
Kramer asked if officers
initiate cases at the request
of county commissioners.
Hargett said they do not but
that commissioners do for-
ward calls from citizens to
the code enforcement office
and that they send copies of
e-mails from the public to
code enforcement.
Next month's Walton
County Coue Enforcement
Board meeting will be the
first in many months to take
place north ofthe bay. It is set
for 6 p.m. on Sept. 21 in
Courtroom B of the Walton
County Courthouse. Code en-
forcement board meetings are
open to public attendance.

Walton County Planning Commission short agenda, long meeting


By LEAH STRATMANN
One of two items on the
special meeting agenda of the
Walton County Planning
Commission took more than
two and half hours of discus-
sion and in the end was post-
poned to the next meeting on
Sept. 14.
The project known as Seren-
ity on the Gulf was listed sec-
ond on the agenda, but was
transferred to first place and
quickly dispatched by the
commissioners. At the regu-
lar meeting on Aug. 10, a
number of opponents spoke
about the proposed three unit
condominium project to be
build on .54 acres of land on
the south side of CR-30A, east
of Pelican Glide Lane and
west of Cottage Way.
Specifically, the nearest
neighbor to the west, Bill and
Sharon Higgins, were con-
cerned about traffic noise,
lighting, and balconies over-
seeing their property, and the
relative closeness of the pro-
posed structure. At that meet-
ing, planning director Pat
Blackshear also said the set-
back distance was a concern
to her as well.
In the intervening two
weeks, the neighbors and the
builder came to terms with
each other, although Bill
Higgins said, "In my view
Serenity is not consistent
with compatibility code, de-
sign and location of parking.
It doubles the footprint of
what exists next to it. It is the
only lot space with no open
space. If this is viewed as
compatible, what would be
incompatible? If these are
considered compatible, I don't
know what couldn't be and
these statues just give false
hope to people thinking their
neighborhoods can be pre-
served. Each of us can recog-
nize compatibility when we
see it."
Sharon Higgins said, "We
don't want any opportunity
for the roof to become a sky
deck, for parties because the
noise and the lighting would
have a negative impact on the'
whole community."
Speaking for the builder,
attorney Dana Matthews
noted the roof height meets
the code and it can be writ-
ten into the buyer covenants
that the stairwells not be
used to access the roof for the
purposes of partying. "The

developer knew what he
could build there before he
purchased the property. He
does not wish to do anything
different than that which has
already been done. The devel-
oper feels he has gone over-
board to avoid any intrusion
his building might cause.
They meet turtle lighting or-
dinances."
Dean Burgis of Emerald
Coast Associates, Inc., the
engineer for the project, fur-
ther said, "We sat down with
the neighbors to the west and
there two items identified
that would alleviate their
concerns: reduction of the bal-
conies so they did not over-
look the Higgins home. The
original plan had open park-
ing on both sides and the new
plans call for closing the west
side of the parking structure
with a stucco buffer. When
parked cars are in the lot they
will face east."
The Higgins' also had asked
for covenants that the condos
were not to be rental units,
but Matthews said he did not
intend to agree to that provi-
sion, as owners were free to
do as they pleased with their
property.
William Tag who developed
a similar project to the one
being proposed in the area
noted that these are infill lots.
"They have a right to build
there. These are multi-family
lots," he said.
After the testimony was
complete, Commissioner Tom
Patton said he felt the project
was compatible and made a
motion to approve the project.
The motion was seconded and


approved by all.
The only other agenda item
was Prominence, a develop-
ment of regional impact
(DRI), which is a planned
community on the order of
Seaside or Rosemary Beach.
The developers were seeking
permission to go ahead with
the last three phases of the
project, consisting of 132 ho-
tel units, 12 bed and break-
fast rooms, and 650 dwelling
units on the north and south
sides of CR-30A, approxi-
mately two miles west of
WaterSound Parkway.
Brian Martinez of the plan-
ning department told the
commissioners the project is
totally surrounded by
WaterSound and Washington
State Forest. He said the
county has concerns about
numerous deficiencies with
the scenic corridor preserva-
tion regulations. In general,
the planning staff felts the
project was not consistent
with the comprehensive plan
and recommended the project
be pulled.
That statement put attor-
ney George Miller on his feet
saying, "My client has spent
more than $2 million on this
project and now you ask him
to stop and start over with
new development criteria.
Once a project has been
started and approved, the
county cannot change the
rules, established in 2004 re-
garding native preservation.
The county approved this
project as presented in 2004."
That is the crux of the ar-
gument. The developers con-
tend that all. four phases of

the project were approved in
2004, but the minutes of the
Board of County Commis-
sioners from that date does
not specify anything other
than Phase 1 of the project
being approved. What fol-
lowed was more than two
hours of debate over this is-
sue with lots of other details
about the project being re-
vealed and discussed.
Blackshear said, "The pres-
ervation issue is a concern.
Did the BBC approve the
plan for the entire site or not?
The minutes are not clear
enough for us to determine if
tVhat was done. Traffic
concurrency has also not been
approved. The variances they
are asking for are from the
comprehensive plan. We have
also not done the environ-
ment part of our study or traf-
fic concurrency. The scenic
corridor restrictions are com-
prehensive plan restrictions
and we can't grant variances
to it."
The comprehensive code
calls for a 20-foot setback
from the right of way for all
of CR-30A. The developers,
noted that Alys Beach has not
conformed to this setback.
The county retorted by say-
ing just because it slipped by
for one development, it need
not continue.

Another issue was the vari-
ance asking to change the
accessory apartments from
800 square feet to 1,500 feet.
Acting on behalf of the county,
attorney Kenneth Goldberg
said, "The county got burned
in Rosemary Beach on the is-
sue of accessory apartments.
It is tantamount to another
house on every lot. It is not a
walkability issue, it is a traf-
fic issue. The only reason to
build at 1,500 square foot ac-
cessory apartment is to rent
it out."
Developer's representative
Bob Apgar said, "My client
will be paying about $5 mil-
lion irn.prppprtional fair share
fees and we want to go for-


ward to BCC...we will work
out the differences with the
planners."
Blackshear noted that with-
out proportional fair share,
they do not meet concurrency
standards and that to date,
the county has not received
approval from the Florida
Department of Transporta-
tion (FDOT) on the numbers
proposed for fair share fees.
Goldberg further noted that
the code calls for preservation
of 50 percent of the upland
pines. "The county only ap-
proved the first 11 acres,
these were the only approv-
als ever granted. The rest of
the project is up for grabs."
As the debate continued, the
developer calls one of his rep-
resentatives and withdrew
the variance request for the
accessory apartments.
Blackshear said, "We feel
this is still not ready, and we
recommended at last meeting
to wait at least another
month, rather than have this
special meeting. There are
still many issues to be worked
out and the traffic
concurrency has still not been


approved. We can't receive
documents a week or a week
and a half in advance, review
them thoroughly and get a
recommendation to you. Our
recommendation is to con-
tinue it further."
Apgar noted, "If we can't
meet the vegetation issue,
this project is effectively
dead. We think this is ready
to be moved forward. We don't
see what purpose will be
served by further delay."
Commissioner Patton said,
"We should ask:the BCC to
clarify the sand pine issue.
Was approval for the environ-
mental issue given at the
time the first phase was ap-
proved or not?"
Miller said, "We want to re-
solve as many issues as pos-
sible before coming back to
the planning commission. We
would like to come back at
next meeting. If the sand pine
issue can't be resolved, we
will pass that aspect up to the
BCC."
Patton made a motion to
continue the issue to 5 p.m.
on Sept. 14, which was ap-
proved by all.

Down. Set. Hike.
That's right, it's time
for the gridiron
rumble as college
and NFL teams hit
the fields, as will cre-
ative marketing and
ad placements to
pinpoint both male
and female consum-
ers.

If you have been reading
my articles over the pastnine
years, you have learned that
not every story I write has to
do with concerts, art festi-
vals, artists or the art world.
Every now and then I poke
fun, voice my opinion, or just
have a good heart-to-heart
with readers.
You can probably tell I am
a huge sports fan and watch
whenever I can. One of the
interesting aspectsof college
and professional football is
the remarkable advertising
that hits the-ainwyoes forZte
first time during. ballgames.
Marketing and advertising
gurus seem'to know precisely
what time, what commercial
space and to whom they need
to direct their ads. Be it a cold
beer, a bag of chips, fast food
or the newest addition to the
Ford truck line, they know
who's watching.
Research, study groups
and comment blogs on com-
puter sites all help fuel the
fire of advertisement, giving
the agencies know-how and
know-where capability.
These research models,
used by many of the big in-
house and private ad agen-
cies, are the key to a success-
ful ad campaign, ultimately
leading to a happy client and
a buying public.
Many don't consider
graphic design and advertis-
ing to be a form of art, but to
many it is the ultimate in
fine art. The work has to be
fine- tuned to fit any type of
media, print, color-glossy,
television, etc., The image
must be so vivid that one can
visualize it even if heard on
radio. That takes an artistic
genius.
Of course, during heavy
sports advertising season
such as football, most mar-
keting is done to men. With
beer ads, snack enticements
and the smell of the new


truck sitting in the driveway, .
agencies have been able to"
capture the male audience at -i /
thethe right time.
It has been found that ve-
hicles and other male-ori-
ented items leave the
shelves, warehouses and
parking at an astonishing
rate between the months of
September and December.

County. This 40 acres is exceptionally nice. An old home place was located here
at one time and the house is still there but needs to be torn down. There is a small
well-stocked fish pond with catfish, bream and bass. Nice cleared and mowed
area that is like a lawn. Also wooded areas that are great for hunting. There is a
well on the property that is used currently by the owners when they are there. No
septic system. You really must see this piece to appreciate the value!! $295,000
