'-eport


debates


merging fire


department


By Ben Grafton
In a much longer than
usual regular meeting on
August 24, the Freeport City
Council debated the issues of
merging the city's fire
department into the Walton
County system.
The proposal under
consideration visualizes nine
full-time firefighters for the
Freeport unit. Changes in
Florida regulations now
require firefighters to be
trained to a minimum
qualification level of
"Firefighter II" and this,
together with a desire to see
personnel who have served
the city faithfully get the full-
time jobs, are core issues in
the considerations. City
Councilman Charlie
Simmons has been directed
by the council to present a
proposal to the County that
would transfer the Freeport
Volunteer Fire Department
to the county and provide
some budgeting support,
during the transition period
if the county will employ
Freeport firefighters in the
available jobs, provided the
selected personnel qualify at
the minimum proficiency
level within a reasonable
period of time.
The Council approved a
resolution to join Walton
County and Eglin Air Force
Base in a "Growth
Management and Joint Land
Use Study." Requested
changes, agreed to by city
planning, to the roads and
storm-water systems of the
Hammock Bay Town Center
were approved as was an
architectural revision to the'
Freeport Truss office design
requested y the new owners
of that business.
A request was made by
its developers for a
development order for Phase
I of the Bishop's Landing
Subdivision located near
Four Mile Road and SR 20.'
This phase is for
construction of 48 single-
family residences. The
proposal has been approved
by city, engineering. The
developer agrees to add a low
fence to the project to mark
the property line
separating the
development from the
adjacent Dickey property.:


The council approved the
request.
The council also
approved a two part
application by FRC which
will provide three 6,000 sq.ft.
warehouse buildings off of
Bulldog Road in the
Industrial Park. The storm-
water system is already in
place and there are no
outstanding issues.
A request for approval of
a condominium development
on 15.7 acres near the'
Community Church was
presented. This development
is for 218 units in three-story-
buildings. The project
engineers are Jenkins,
Stanford & Associates. The
proposal has been approved
by city engineering and there
are no outstanding issues:
The developers approved a
request by Terry Blythe of
the New Beginnings Church
for a fence between church
property and the
development.
The units are expected
to sell in the $160,000 to
$170,000 range. The request
was approved subject to'
addition of the fence to the,
plan.
An announcement was'
made that a "'U.S. Highway'
331 Summit" meeting to
discuss the future of the
highway will be held from 10'
a.m. until noon on November
16 at the Sandestin Hilton.'
Interested parties should
attend.
FRC submitted a its
final plat to the council for.
acceptance. The city surveyor
has already approved the'
plat. The council accepted the
plat subject to a letter of
approval from city
engineering.
Engineer Tony Peters of
Peters Municipal Associates
reported to the council that
Walton County would run
their highway traffic model.
and that Freeport would
provide transparency and
insight into their method of
calculating traffic loading in
a cooperative program to
understand and resolve
differences between the two
systems.
Peters also advised the
Council that the city's

By LEIGH STRICKLAND
The city council of
DeFuniak Springs decided
at its Monday night meeting
to work in connection with
Walton County, the city of
Freeport, and the Walton
County Chamber Foun-
dation to address the need
for affordable housing.

The plan, presented by
Chamber president
Dawn Moliterno and
chairman Rick Severance, is
to hire a housing services
director who would oversee
efforts to create affordable
housing in Walton County.
"We're trying to create a
subject matter special-
ist," Severance said.
Two positions will be
created, one administra-
tive, the other strategic,
costing a total of
$125,000 including full
benefits for both positions.
Moliterno and Severance
asked the city to fund 15
percent of this cost or
$18,750. Walton County is to
pay 50 percent of the cost
and the city of Freeport,
15 percent. The rest, they
said, will come from
the private sector.
The council spoke in favor


of the plan.
Councilman Don
Harrisoi said, "We need
some-body professional.
There are so many
complexities."
"Everybody knows the
song, but nobody knows
the dance," Councilman
James Huffman said about
the affordable housing issue.
He called this plan "the most
positive effort" he'd seen.
Another plan to help
address the issue was
also presented to the
council.
A conceptual site plan for
a senior citizen hous-
ing development was
presented by Bob Covald of
Sarasota, Florida. The site of
the proposed development is
the property between U.S. 90
and Baldwin Avenue on
the east side of 20th Street.
Calling the development
"affordable for
seniors," Covald said, "There
are sufficient quantities
of people to fill up the
development."
Some 90 units on three
stories are proposed
with prices that would range
from $218 to $432 for a one-
bedroom unit and $265 to
$525 for a two-bedroom unit.



Income limits would be in
place, $19,000 for
the smaller unit and $22,000
for the larger one.
Funding, Covald said,
would b'e in' the form of
federal tax credits. "You only
need to come up with
$20,000," he told the council.
However, plans are still in
very early stages. "As of this
time, we do have
the property under
contract," Covald said. He
added, "We haven't even
decided on a name yet."
, In another housing
related item, Sandy
Smith, executive director of
Habitat for Humanity of
Walton County, requested
that the council waive water
tap and water impact fees for
a house being*built by the
group on W. Picasso Road.
"We have a goal of
eliminating substandard
housing in Walton County,"
Smith said.
The council approved
waiving the fees, which came
to just under $16.
The city will try again to
move forward in
the renovation of the Chau-
tauqua building.
With bids received on the
project ranging from $55,000


to $310,900, City Manager
Kim Presnell said, "There
are too many unanswered
questions on some of the
bids."
It was felt that the best
solution would be
to advertise for bids again,
this time with more
specific language. Building
and Planning Department
Director Larry Laird said, "I
will try and clarify it
myself this time."
The council voted to reject
the bids and readvertise.
The city's contract with
OMI for the operation
and management of the
city's wastewater and
water treatment facilities is
up for renewal. The cost
to the city for the period from
October 1 of this year to the
end of September 2007 is to
be $704,668, some $2,000
less than the last agreement.

Bill Secoy of the Florida
Rural Water Associa-
tion presented a water and
sewer rate study to the
council. Amohg his recom-
mendations were rate
increase of 4.3 percent for
water and 15.1 percent for
sewer. The council took no
action on this.

Garden Club busy, plans projects


The DeFuniak Springs
Garden Club will have a
salad/potluck luncheon to
start off the 2006-2007 year.
The meeting will be held at
noon Wednesday, September
6, at the First Methodist
Church Fellowship Hall. New
yearbooks will be passed out
and this years projects will be
discussed. Visitors are wel-
come to come see what a gar-


den club is all about. Anyone
with a love for plants and the
environment will fit right in
(dress casually).
This summer has been a
busy one for the club. Al-
though meetings are not held
in June, July and August, the
weeding goes on all summer.
The members are also still
working on beautification
projects. On June 20, the


group installed an additional
bench, two chairs and four
small tables to the Library
Reading Garden to create the
beginning of an outdoor
classroom. Then, on July 15,
they added caladiums across
the front of the picket fence
to match those they had pre-
viously planted in front of the
Library. The club gave the
circle bed by the Visitors.Cen-


ter a facelift on July 18. The
city got the irrigation fixed
and then the club added
mulch and planted two
circles of yellow 'Yangtze' ev-
ergreen daylilies around a
'Double Knock Out' red rose.
The bed looks very Victorian
and compliments the historic
look of Circle Drive.
On the 4th of July week-
end, a vehicle left the road-
way and plowed down the
Blue Star Marker at the in-
tersection of Hwy. 331 and
Hwy. 90. The Florida Depart-
ment of Transportation sup-
plied a replacement pole and
the city installed it, removed

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Will Glendale residents choose

PERSONAL COMMENTS independent fire district?
PERSONAL COMMENTS


By RON KELLEY

Even if one had no calendar, anyone can see that it's elec-
tion season. The signs, big and small, line the highways and
sprinkle the intersections and dot the lawns, all proclaim-
ing candidates' names,
This election season has come in like a lamb, but it may go
out with a roar. Most political prognosticators say that in-
terest in elections is low, morale is low and many people feel
disconnected from the process. As always, it's so easy to shrug
it off by saying, 'My vote doesn't count' or 'What can one
person do?' and other convenient phrases.
Well, consider this. The person who migrates to America,
who applies for U.S. citizenship, who studies hard in order
to stand in a little room somewhere and pledge their alle-
giance to their new country, can easily tell you about voting
and what one person's vote can do.
Many of them come from places where voting is not al-
lowed at all, where their lives are ruled by thugs waving
guns; where people disappear in the night, never to be seen
again; where "soldiers" slaughter whole villages, where sur-
vivors find a way to stay alive amid poverty, disease, pesti-
lence and unending corruption. Many of these people come
from places where voting is merely a dream, a thought not
spoken aloud.
Yet, next Tuesday, thousands of people right here in Wal-
ton County, people who have waved their flags on July 4,
who tied yellow ribbons around their own oak tree, who
pasted 'Support Our Troops' stickers on their cars, will spend
Election Day going about their own private affairs without
giving a single thought to voting, without taking a moment
to exercise their one, true remaining freedom, the only one
that actually can change things.
It's a sad state of affairs when foreigners appreciate what
American freedoms mean better than we do. And it's not
like we don't have enough convenient opportunities to vote.

Did you know that you can go to the Supervisor of Elec-




Editor,
The senior teachers at Paxton have proven themselves to
the students, to the school, and to the community. We trust
them. We respect them. Most are in fact pillars of the school
and pillars of the community.
When they were betrayed by their leaders (superinten-
dent-principal), they were undermined, they were shaken.
When you shook them, you shook us all, and we don't like it.
We want you to fix it. We want you to give the Paxton teach-
ers the support that they deserve.

Editor,
I'm writing in regard to applying for a labor position with
Walton County.
Putting in an application, I was contacted a few days later
to see about two mosquito positions. Albeit accepting one, I
was told I needed a drug and background check. That same
hour, I took a Federal, drug test. A week went by with no
contact. Called position's phone and left a message for re-.
sults, with no return call back.
The results of these checks and a courtesy call back would
be nice. The taxpayers paid for this test, .for what I don't
know. Obviously there's no position.
The "Human" part of resource system needs to be changed
from private to public. Somebody, please respect the ones
behind me. By the way, the mosquitos are eating us up-three
months of no spray-em.

EDITOR'S COMMENT



To vote or not to vote


NONPARTISAN


tions' office in DeFuniak Springs or at the South Walton
Courthouse Annex and vote today? That's right. You can even
vote on Saturday, too. What could be more convenient than
that?
The truth is when it comes to finding an excuse not to
vote we don't have one, not a single one. One vote does
make a difference. Political posts have been won and lost in
Walton County due to a single vote and that one vote, that
one person made a huge difference. Besides, if you don't vote,
you're not allowed to complain not even in print.
Which brings me to another point.
I love to hear from you. I look forward to every ltter to
the editor. But don't send me one about your favorite candi-
date or your favorite candidate to hate, because we're not
going to print either one. It's Herald-Breeze policy. Talk about
the issues, but not the candidates. If you're urging me to
vote for your candidate, that's an advertisement and if you're
disparaging someone, that's just mudslinging and we don't
want your mud to splatter on us. If you want to praise Cae-
sar or bury him, you're going to have to buy an ad, just like
any other political entity.
Readers, just remember that candidates cannot prevent
other people from taking out negative advertisements. Nega-
tive ads from separate groups or individuals are one thing
and negative ads by candidates are another. The former can
be tolerated in the spirit of free speech, but the latter should
not ever be tolerated at all.
The most important thing in America is about to begin.
People are about to have a say in what happens to them.
They are about to have a chance to decide who gets to make
decisions about them and for them. They are going to have
the privilege of voting.
Want one final reason to invest five minutes in voting?
Consider the words of this famous person.

The November General
Election ballot will ask Glen-
dale residents to decide
whether the community's
volunteer fire department
will become an independent
fire district.
On Aug. 22, the Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners approved the
addition of the item to the
ballot. The approval was part
of the meeting consent
agenda.
The small but growing
Glendale community is lo-
cated north of DeFuniak
Springs.
On Aug. 29, Eddie Rivers,
director for Walton County
Fire Rescue, described the
inclusion of the item on the
ballot as basically a "house
cleaning measure."
Rivers said that prior to the
creation of Walton County
Fire Rescue, the Glendale
Volunteer Fire Department
got a state bill passed that is
now legally requiring Walton
County to put the item on the
ballot. Rivers said he has not
seen much. recent interest
from Glendale in creating an
independent fire district.
A number of independent
and volunteer fire districts
north of the Bay have joined
with Walton County Fire
Rescue since the county-run
fire response entity was cre-
ated about a year ago.
However, Kevin Dell, chief
of the Glendale Fire Depart-
ment, said that he is still in
'favor of the community vol-
unteer fire department be-
coming an independent dis-
trict.
Dell said the independent
district would give local citi-
zens greater voice with the
operation of local fire re-
sponse than the option of
joining with Walton County
Fire Rescue.
If an independent fire dis-
* trict is created, it will be
funded by the levying of tax
assessments on property in
the community. However,
Dell said the cost will remain
the same, $25 a year per
property. He explained that


currently fire service is sup-
ported by property owners
paying that same amount to
a municipal service benefit
unit (MSBU).
He said that the
department's volunteer force
is more than adequate to re-
spond to the current 150-200
or fewer emergency calls it
receives per year.
"You can't get better than
free," he said of the volunteer
force.
He said he does not see the
need to hire firefighter/para-
medics at a salary of about
$60,000 a year apiece.
, Dell said he has gotten good
feedback from citizens about
the possibility of the depart-
ment becoming an indepen-
dent district.
However, Glendale commu-
nity leader and businessman
Christian Willis maintains
that the fire chief and his
board are the only ones in the
community who support es-
tablishing an independent
fire district.
Willis said most of the comrn-
munity supports the fire de-
partment combining with
Walton County Fire Rescue
because that will spread out
fire service costs better and
not put as much of a burden
on Glendale resident as the
community grows and needs
fire service improvements.
"People in Glendale can't
afford to pay more taxes," he
said.
Willis said that getting
started with tax assessments
under an independent fire
district will just "open the
door" to the fire district rais-
ing citizens' taxes in the com-
munity.
Willis said that currently
plenty of volunteers show up
at fires and that response is
good. However, with Glen-
dale growing along with the
rest of the county, he foresees
the day when paid
firefighters will be needed.
When that day comes, he said
the county as a whole will be
better able to support the
necessary funding increase
than the citizens of Glendale
alone, as would happen with
an independent fire district.

The Early Learning Coali-

Walton Counties is a non-
profit group of 21 members,
working together to admin-
ister the funding for early
education and care of chil-
dren birth to age five, in the
two-county area. The most
important event for the
(ELC) and our children and

nab

robber
DeFuniak Springs Police
Department (DFSPD) ar-
rested an Ohio man for rob-
bery of a Dollar General
Store at 387 West Nelson
Avenue. During the late af-
ternoon hours of Aug. 22,
DFSPD officers received no-
tification of the robbery and
that the suspect had fled the
scene with an undetermined
amount of cash. While con-
ducting a thorough canvass
in a nearby West DeFuniak'
Springs neighborhood, Of-
ficer Eddie E. Nelson discov-
ered the suspect, later iden-
tified as Eric D. Murphy of
Ohio, inside a residence lo-
cated on West Orange Av-
enue, believed to have been
abandoned.
After the suspect briefly
barricaded himself inside the
residence, he finally surren-
dered to authorities. DFSPD
Officer Joseph Ward and Ser-
geant Brian Schultz also as-
sisted during the investiga-
tion. Further charges are
pending in this case.

to the ELC additional dollars
with which to educate young
children.
The three gubernatorial
appointees, other private sec-
tor members and agency af-
filiates are seeking addi-
tional coalition members
from the private sector in
Walton County. Private sec-
tor involvement has been sig-
nificant to the success of the

ness.

of Walton County need a
voice," said Gloria Mayo, ex-
ecutive director of ELC of
Okaloosa and Walton Coun-
ties.

McKameys to sing at First Baptist Church


Gospel singing group The,
McKameys will sing at First
Baptist Church on Thursday,
September 7 at 7 p.m. First
Baptist Church is located at
216 Live Oak Avenue in De-
Funiak Springs.
The concert is free, and a
love offering will be received.
The McKameys have been
singing gospel for nearly four
decades. The composition of
the group has changed, but
the motive and message have
remained the same "to
honor Him who is worthy of
all praise."
The group began in 1954
with Peg, Carol, and another
sister, Dora McKamey. Later,
Ruben Bean joined the group
and then the family by mar-


McKAMEYS


trying Peg. In 1971, both Carol
and Dora left the group to
fulfill family obligations.
They were replaced by Peg
and Ruben's two daughters,
Connie and Sheryl.
In September of 1984, the
group had its first number
one release, "Who Put the
Tears in the Eyes of the
Lamb?"
At this time, Sheryl left the
group and Carol rejoined. The
vocalists in the group have re-
mained unchanged since
then. In addition to the sing-
ers, Randall Hunley plays pi-
ano and Roger Fortner plays
guitar.
.Though the McKameys
have enjoyed great success
from the beginning, most of
the group's national recogni-
tion has' come within the last
decade.
Among the group's many

nominations and awards
have been 12 number-one
songs, with nearly every
single released making the
Top-40 chart in Singing
News. The McKameys also
had two number-one songs on
the U.S. Gospel News chart.
In 1989, the Singing News
Fan Awards named "God on
the Mountain" as Song of the
Year.
The McKameys have re-
corded 41 albums since they
were formed, as well as 10
videos, and worked between
140 150 singing dates a year.
Peg McKamey Bean has
been named Favorite Female
Vocalist for seven years by the
Singing News Fan Awards.


PAGE 9-A
None of the group has a
formal education in music or
entertainment, but all come
from a rich family heritage in
music and ministry.
The McKameys are based
in Clinton, TN, about 18
miles north of Knoxville,
where the group's office and
publishing company are lo-
cated. The McKameys are
associated with H6rizon
Records in Asheville, NC, and
Nashville's Harper Agency.
The McKameys remain
grateful for the Lord's bless-
ings on their ministry.

For years tourism in Wal-

Council (TDC), the Univer-
sity of Florida's Institute of
Food and Agricultural Sci-
ences Extension and Visit
Florida, Florida's official
tourism agency, have
partnered in the first Visit
Florida Rural Pilot Program
for promoting agri-tourism.
"Agri-tourism" is a way of
promoting rural destinations
for those wanting to recon-
nect to nature.
The Shoal Sanctuary Na-
ture Preserve and Sculpture
Trails is a place to do just
that.
Dr. Robert Larson and his
wife Christina are the stew-
ards of 50 rolling acres near
Mossy Head.
"We want to educate
people to stay in touch with
nature, said. Larson.
Larsbn's sculptures dot the
landscape amongst groomed
trails throughout their prop-
erty. "All of the sculptures are
meant to be touched and
handled," Larson added.
The sanctuary is home to
a variety of plant and animal
life. The Larsons have seen
evidence of bear and deer
populations and go to great
lengths not to disturb the
wildlife.
"We would like to see visi-
tors honor and respect the

reading of this proposal
will be presented at the city

tember 12.
Gordon King, vice-
president of operations for
the Okaloosa Gas District
presented a proposal for
the extension of their natu-
ral gas distribution system
into the Freeport commu-
nity. King asked the city


to provide small properties
for the installation of pres-

noted that when the system
is operational that Freeport
would receive a franchise
fee of about six percent of
gas sales in the franchise
area. The council agreed
to provide the twq parcels

regulator stations.
In closing, the council
set a budget workshop for
August 30 at 7 p.m.; agreed
to consider incorporating

Pandemic Influenza:
More Questions and Answers 4
Article 3 in a series of 7 ,

This article is a continuation of the last to inform you and your family about
some unanswered questions regarding pandemic flu.

Q: How is avian influenza detected in humans?
A: The avian flu is not diagnosed by its symptoms. There is lab testing that has *
to be done in order to diagnose the virus. The testing that's done is based in a
swab of nasal or throat secretions. The swab should be taken in the first fdw da\ s
of the illness. Once collected the sample is sent to a lab and tested by a molecu-
lar test. It can take up to several weeks to verify the results.

Q: How does H5N1 virus differ from the seasonal flu virus humans get? .
A: The H5N1 infection may follow a very rapid course and progress to very bad 4
respiratory symptoms quickly, causing a high mortality rate. This is due to \ iral
pneumonia and multi-organ failure. Seasonal flu does not do this. Seasonal flu
has mild respiratory symptoms.

Q: Can a person become infected with H5N1 virus by cleaning a bird feeder?
A: There is not evidence of H5N1 in birds or humans in the U.S. Presently there
is not a risk of becoming infected with H5N1 from perching birds. These birds *
are the birds that feed off of feeders. Therefore, at this time there is not a risk of
becoming infected with the virus by cleaning a bird feeder.

Q: What kinds of wild birds primarily carry avian flu?
A: The virus has been isolated between the waterfowl and the shorebirds. Water
fowl are the ducks, geese, and swans you see, while shorebirds are wading bird.
gulls, and terns.

Q: Are migratory birds carrying the virus from one country to another?
A: The role that migratory birds play in the transfer of H5N1 is not clear. H5N 1 I
has been increasing in number of wild birds. It is not known if the wild birds are
the source of the virus.or if they acquired it from the poultry.

It's been asked...
"What has the current Board of County Commissioners done to improve and four lane
Highway 331?"

Here's what's been done...
Made four-laning 331 it's number one priority
Requested a meeting with Governor Bush
Met with FL D.O^.T.Secretary DenverStutler -u
Met with state and federal legislators
Met with District Secretary Edward Prescott
Met with a delegation of concerned parties from south Alabama
(not just one Covington County commissioner)

So what progress has been made?
Four lanes from U.S. 98 to the Clyde Wells Bridge in progress
Over $37 million dollars for right of way acquisition ,
Freeport bypass in progress
Turn lanes at Rock Hill Road
Turn lanes and intersection improvements at CR 3280

It's been said that...
"One commissioner cut a deal with a land owner to erect a fence on private property
with county resources."

FACT:
On April 26, 2005 the Board of County Commissioners approved a proposal to receive
: over six acres of land to resolve a longstanding storm water problem in exchange for
erecting a fence.
S Ron Kelley filed the following in the DeFuniak Herald Breeze (date January 12, 2006)
S "...property owner Frank Walker approached the county and offered to deed the county
a mile long strip of land running alongside Brown Road so that the county could con-
struct stormwater retention ponds and build a roadside drainage system. Walker also
S offered an additional 6.1 acres of land. The deal was approved by the commissioners on
April 26, 2005. In return, the county agreed to put up a fence within the county's new
S right of way. The retention ponds are inside the fence but still on county right of way."

Greater than "Gratia"
By Dr. Charles Satterwhite
Pastor, Freeport UMC

Don't you love to be at a party in the home of a gra-
cious host? You feel comfortable and at ease. If you spill
something, it is no big deal. You can put your feet up and
set a drink down without worries. Conversation flows easy
and relaxed; no pins and needles, unafraid of saying some-
thing wrong.
Did you know that the root of the word gracious is the
Latin word "gratia" which is: one known by kindness, cour-
tesy and generosity of spirit? There is another wonderful
word that comes from that same gratia root. It is "Grace."
Grace denotes favor and unmerited divine assistance.
Funny how around God you feel the same way you feel
around a gracious host-even better. You are accepted,
enjoyed, favored, and blessed. That's because of God's
grace. We don't deserve grace, but that's the point; it's
bigger than our unworthiness. He pours his unmerited
favor on us every day of our life, and we don't even know
it.
"You open Your hand and satisfy the desire of every
living thing." (Psalm 145:16) Wow! That's a gracious God.
If you haven't thought of God in this light, you are prob-
ably partying at the wrong house. Graciously make your
excuses and leave.
Go in search of the party at the home of the gracious
host. He won't be too hard to find; He left the light on just
for you!
Come and grow with us at the Freeport United Meth-
odist Church. We begin Sunday School at 9 a.m., and wor-
ship at 10.a.m. We are also proud sponsors of the Angel

Braves record convincing first win for new head coach


By PATRICK CASEY
The Walton Braves scored
32 unanswered points as the
Braves defeated Baker for
the second season in a row
38-7 to earn the program's
450th overall victory and the
first for new Walton Head
Coach Lenny Jankowski.
Baker opened the contest
with a drive that lasted over
eight minutes of game time,
but the Gators were unable
to put points on the board as
Walton knocked down a pass
on 4th-and-15 from the Wal-
ton 23-yard line. The opening
drive set the tone for Baker
on the night as the Gators
moved the ball at times, but
could not reach the endzone.
Walton responded on their
first possession with a touch-
down as sophomore quarter-
back Terrell Bramlet hit Alex
Smith on a 42-yard bomb for
a 6-0 lead.
The lead only lasted until
the kickoff as Terry Cobb
fielded the kick at his own 7-
yard line, then found a seam
to race 93 yards for a touch-
down and a 7-6 Baker lead
after one quarter of play.
It was all Walton from
that point on. Walton drove
67 yards to quickly retake the
lead on a 15-yard run by se-
nior Devin Gibson, then re-
covered a fumble by Baker's


Billy Whatmough on the
Gators next possession at the
Baker 42-yard line to start
another drive. Gibson found
the endzone again on a 25-
yard jaunt to up the Walton
advantage to 18-7.
Baker mounted a drive in
the final moments of the first
half only to have Walton de-
fensive back Isaac Jackson
pick off a Laine Barnhill pass
at the Walton 8- yard line to
snuff out the drive.
Walton took the opening
kickoff of the second half and
picked up where they left off.
Walton drove 62 yards for
another score as Xavier Jack-
son raced in from 8 yards out
to increase the lead to 25-
7. Walton marched down the
field again on their next pos-
session only to have Devin
Gibson lose the handle on the
football at the Baker 2-yard
line as the Gators stopped
the drive, with a fumble re-
covery.
Walton added two more
touchdowns as Barnhill
tossed his second intercep-
tion of the night late in the
contest to set up Akeem
Gilbert's 9-yard run for the
final margin of 38-7.
Walton scored on six of
their nine possessions in the
game as Bramlet was im-
pressive in hitting on 9-of-11

Seahawks grounded by Bulldogs 9-6


By PATRICK CASEY
The Freeport Bulldogs
survived a monsoon and a
trip to south Walton as the
Bulldogs held on for a 9-6
win over the Seahawks in
the regular season opener
for both squads.
Rain.set in for most of the
contest, limiting both teams
offensive performance as de-
fenses and turnovers ruled
the night. The wet playing
field saw the two squads
combine for seven turnovers
as well as a blocked punt, a
safety, and eleven penalties.
The entire first half was
a scoreless affair as both
squads had trouble hold-
ing on to the football in the
early going. Seahawks' ju-
nior quarterback Dion Jones
fumbled three times in the
first half, twice in Freeport
territory to stop South Wal-
ton drives.
Freeport could not move
the football in the first half
as the Bulldogs could amass
only 23 total yards in 15
plays from scrimmage. Free-
port coach Jim Anderson
played very conservatively
in the first half as the Bull-
dogs tried to minimize the
opportunity for fumbles on
the rain-soaked field.
Freeport mounted their
only scoring drive of the
game in the third quarter
as they took the kickoff and
marched 47 yards for a score
as Josh Thomas- raced in
from 15 yards out for a 6-0
lead. Spencer Martin added
a very difficult extra point in
the quagmire to up the ad-
vantage to 7-0.
South Walton responded
on their next possession as
Marty Sanders caught the
only pass completed in the
entire contest for a 41-yard
touchdown from Jones. The
Seahawks muffed the extra
point snap as the ball rolled
halfway to the holder on
the wet surface, preserving
Freeport a 7-6 lead midway
through the third quarter.
A holding penalty early
in the fourth quarter backed
South Walton to its own 15-
yard line for a punt. Free-
port's Logan Caudill raced
in to block the kick, with the
ball rolling into the slick en-
dzone where a South Walton
player fell on it for a Freeport
safety and a 9-6 advantage.

Freeport took the free kick
and marched to the South
Walton 13-yard line only to
have Lloyd Anderson lose
the 'handle on the football on
a quarterback rollout.
Seahawk defensive line-


man Juwayne Tanner picked
up the football at the 26-
yard line and raced to the
other end of the field, only to
be caught at the 11-yard line
by Freeport offensive line-
man Skylar Martin. Martin's
tackle may have saved the
game for Freeport because
three plays later, Austin Bed-
dington coughed up the ball
at the 8-yard line with Logan

Walton volleyball splits with county rivals


By Patrick Casey
It was an interesting week
in volleyball as all three of
the county's schools posted a
different record in competi-
tion.
Freeport had the most suc-
cessful run as the Bulldogs
won both their matches of the
week over Walton and
Vernon to improve to 4-2
overall.
Walton logged a 1-1 record
as the Braves fell to Freeport
but rebounded to defeat
South Walton in a rivalry
match that also doubles as a
district contest for the two


squads.
South Walton continues to
struggle as the Seahawks
posted an 0-2 record in los-
ing decisions to Walton and
Panama City Mosley.
Freeport, under veteran
coach Tina Knight, won the
first two games of their
match at Walton 25-20 and
25-23, only to see Walton win
the next two games 25-19
and 25-21. Freeport got back
on track in the final game as
they escaped DeFuniak with
a 15-7 win over the Braves
and the early bragging rights


in the county championship.
Nicole Dykes had a solid
serving night and Lindsey
Jones rallied Freeport in the
second game with several
pressure serves that allowed'
the Bulldogs to come from
behind and build a 2-0 ad-
vantage. It took four games
for the Bulldogs to defeat.
Vernon (25-18, 22-25, 25-14,
25-21) on Thursday as
Freeport improved to 4-2
overall on the year.
Walton took their frustrat-
ing loss to Freeport out on
South Walton as the Braves


dominated the district match
with a three game sweep (25-
21, 25-14, 25-20) to improve
their overall record to 4-2 on
the young season.
South Walton was swept
in both matches as Walton
and Mosley dropped the
Seahawks record to 2-6. The
Seahawks, who have beefed
up their schedule consider-
ably this season, don't catch
many breaks in the near fu-
ture as they play on Thurs-
day, August 31, at Pensacola
Catholic in their second dis-
trict match of the year.


Woods
back to


storms
victory


By CHUCK HINSON
It seems to be the year of
the Tiger. Tiger Woods, if you
are wondering.
Woods celebrated his tenth
year as a professional on
Sunday at the Bridgestone
Invitational in Akron, OH.
He also won his 52nd tour-
nament, edging closer to his
ultimate goal and record as
the winningest golfer in his-
tory.
Woods won for the fourth
straight time with a 8-foot
birdie putt on the fourth
play-off hole against Stewart
Cink. Though it looked like
Cink might have the game in
the bag. But the win came
when Cink putted into a
bunker during a downpour,
and'was never able to re-
cover.
Both players finished at
10-under- 270.
Woods also continued to
make history as he won the
championship tournament at
Firestone for the fifth time.
The tournament has been at
Bridgestone for only seven
years.
Woods has dominated at
other courses as well, includ-
ing the Augusta National and
Torrey Pines, having won
'won four times .at. each
course.
It was Aug.' 27, 1996, that
Woods announced to the
world that he was turning
professional. Ten years later,
he is celebrating 52 victories,
matched by Byron Nelson
with an all-time- fifth place.
Woods' 12 majors are second
only to Jack Nicklaus'18 ma-
jor tournament wins.

Agassi says

farewell

By CHUCK HINSON
He has won eight major
tennis championships and
has had a colorful career both
on and off the court. Now,
SAndre Agassi will say a final
farewell at the 2006 U.S.
Open .
Roger Federer and Rafeal
Nadal, Andy Roddick and
Serena Williams will all be
there, but even they know
that the spotlight will be on
36-year-old Agassi as he bids
farewell to the sport he has
made a staple in sports fans'
homes for more than a de-
cade.
Agassi lost to Federer last
year in the 2005 U.S. Open,
all for her' but even he knows that the'
Sr hr tennis icon still has some
unty rival strength and desire in him to
go out and play his best
game ever.
Despite the fact that Agassi
enters the tournament not
ranked or seeded, he says he
is mentally ready for the.
challenge. He has missed
several previous tourna-
PA ments due to health and
29 back problems.

Oyster Lake





not dead yet


By Leah Stratmann
Reports of Oyster Lake's
demise have been greatly
exaggerated. However,
although rumors of the death
of Oyster Lake as a coastal
dune lake may be premature,
according to Chris Metcalf
with the U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Service, it is gasping
for breath.
Members of the wildlife
service last year started a
preliminary monitoring
study of the lake to check on
water quality, the fish and
insect population, as well as
looking at sediments,
sediment pollutants and
aquatic plant diversity.
"We tried' to cover the
gamut of environmental
parameters," Metcalf said.
"Our results indicated there
was a low diversity of fish
living there and some species
were indicative of fish that
typically live in fresh water
systems that are inland," he
noted. "To date we do not
have the report on insects,
and plants, was the dissolved
oxygen was below the state
water quality standard for
several days."
Metcalf is the coordinator
of a program called Partners
for Fish and Wildlife. "I do
restoration for fish and
wildlife in the Panhandle," he
said. "I help with coming up
with an idea for a design and
if our own agency cannot
fund it all, I go look for state
and non-profit funds that
might be available."
The plan for Oyster Lake
is a three-pronged approach.
"First we want to remove the
causeway road on the
eastern portion of the lake
and construct a pedestrian
bridge. This work is
underway now," Metcalf said.
"Secondly we want to erect a
bridge on South Thompson
Road to reconnect the
natural wetland flows on the
western edge of the lake."
The third part of the plan


involves putting in a small
bridge over a driveway that
is currently over the outflow
corridor of the lake and
connects to CR-30A. "We
need to remove the metal
culverts and CR-30A will be
spanned with another
bridge," he said.-
Metcalf. said the
restoration project was
begun before he was even
aware of the continuing
problems associated with a
lawsuit against the county by
William Hemby, which may
delay the implementation of
the third phase of the project.
Hemby wants to redirect the
flow of water from the
western edge of his Oyster
Lake property to the center.
Hurricane Opal flooded the
irea in 1995 and the county
moved the outfall, which
Hemby claims they had no
right to do. The issue of who
has the authority to do what,
has'been in litigation for
years.

"The whole dispute
revolves around the issue of
whether or not the county
'had the authority to move
the ditch in the first.place,"
said Stan Chapman, the
Hembys attorney, "When the
Oyster Lake project was first
discussed, it appeared the
bridge would have great
impact on the property,
allowing an unimpeded flow
of water across my client's
property. The culvert
provides some measure of
restriction," he said.
When the controversy
began, then sitting Judge
Stone thought it would make
sense to delay the lawsuit
until it was determined
whether or not the county
was able to secure the
necessary permits to proceed
with the restoration. This
"stay" was ordered because
the county had already
gotten preliminary
indications from the


Department of Environmen-
tal Protection (DEP) that no
permits would be issued'
until the lawsuit was
resolved and the county
could not prove they would
not damage the individual's
property.
A hearing held on Jan. 24
of this year and presided over
by Judge Howard LaPorte
granted the county's motion
for relief from the stan, but-
also granted Hemby's motion
to amend his original
complaint against the county,
throwing the whole issue into
a murky arena.
. "Since the issue was put
on hold in 2002, the county
has come onto the property
at least twice to reopen the
ditch without permission and
without an easement and
without compensation."
Chapman said. "It is bad
enough when government
condemns your land under
eminent domain, but at least
then they have to pay for it.
In this case, they have taken
it without paying for it."
The restoration project
will cost about $700,000,
with $400,000 coming from
the Florida Water
Management District,
$250,000 from Walton
County, $50,000 from federal
funds. Metcalf also noted
that the Choctawhatchee
Basin Alliance (CBA)
contributed some funds and
assists with monitoring the
lake along with the Three
Rivers Resource
Conservation and
Development Council.
Until all the legal issues
are resolved, the restoration:
of Oyster Lake cannot be
completed. Metcalf said he
thought the lawsuit was
scheduled to go to court
sometime this fall and if the
suit was settled in favor of
the county, the entire
restoration project could be
completed by the spring of
2007.

Comm unity traffic safety


team meets in Freeport


By Jeffrey Powell
The Walton County Com-
munity Traffic Safety Team
(CTST) met on Aug. 23 to dis-
cuss traffic issues and set.'pri-
orities concerning those is-
sues.'
At the top of the CTST
priority list is the intersec-
tion of U.S 98 and Geronimo
Street in Miramar Beach.'
"Our numniber one priority is
to use all means possible to
make sure that the safety
concerns of this intersection
are mitigated in a timely
manner," stressedLatilda


Henninger, CTST vice chair-
.man.
Another high priority for,
the CTST is the intersection
ofBruce Avenue and U.S. 331
in DeFuniak Springs. Ac-
cording to CTST members,
DeFuniak Springs Mayor
Harold Carpenter and Police
Chief Mike Adkinson are co-
operating in efforts to im-
prove this location. Accelera-
tion and deceleration lanes
have been suggested as pos-
sible ways to remedy the
problems at the intersection.
Pedestrian tand bicycle


traffic crossing U.S. 98 to U.S.
331 is also of concern. ""The
Okaloosa Walton College an-
nex is coming soon and we
want to see a way ofgettirig.
pedestrians from the south
side of U.S. 98 to the north
'side of U.S. 98 safely," said
Henninger.
CTST members would
also like to see signage along
U.S. 98 alerting drivers to up-
cortlifig intersections such as
J.D. Miller Road. Members
felt that drivers come upon
this and similar roads with-
out any warning.

Music and Theater around the South


As the city of New
Orleans reflects
back after one year,
and the nation re-
members one of the
worst natural disas-
ters in its history, the
sounds and sights of
the Crescent City
are slowly returning.

* It is hard to believe that it
has been over a year since
Hurricane Katrina slammed
into the state of Louisiana
and the Mississippi Gulf
Coast on Aug, 29, 2005. It lev-
elled miles of homes and
businesses. Thousands lost
their lives under the brutal
hand of Mother Nature.
Reflecting back on the
summer of 2005, the city of
New Orleans was still enjoy-
ing the smell of beignets in
the French Quarter, the sight
of tug and cruise ships in the
ports and the sound of a dis-
tant sax being played down
by the Ri erwalk onthe Mis-
sissippi River. Little did they
know that for more than
eight months, those sights
and sounds they thought
would always be around,
would abruptly come to an
end.
When the levees broke and
the city, especially the Ninth
Ward, flooded, hundreds of
thousands of homes were
lost, businesses were demol-
ished and the lives of millions
were changed forever. It was
a time that brought the coun-
try to its knees, and height-
ened awareness for safer liv-
ing environments and condi-
tions for those in the hurri-
cane zones. ,
But things, they are a-
changing!
When you come over the
high-rise into the downtown
area, there are cranes and
construction signs, vehicles,
workers, dump trucks and
moving vans filling the sky-
line. A city once dwarfed by
its high-rises is now in the
shadows of hundred-foot
cranes, repairing and re-
building the city on the Mis-
sissippi.
Many New Orleans resi-
dents now make.their homes
in Atlanta, Houston, Dallas,
Baton Rouge and even
throughout the north Florida
panhandle. They choose not
to relocate to New Orleans
and put down roots in an
area that .they say cannot be
trampled on by the Corp of
Engineers, a reference to the
levee systems that broke the
day after Hurricane Katrina
hit.
But there are those who
refuse to give up on the city,
and the deep history and
heritage that made New Or-
leans what it is today.
The fact that the homes in
the city's Ninth Ward and
many low-lying government
housing units have been or
will be demolished doesn't
seem to have changed many
of the residents' ideas.
FEMA trailers can still be
seen everywhere, but resi-
dents are still slowly return-
ing and rebuilding.
One thing that can always
be said about New Orleans
is that the spirit and culture
of the city blends art, food
and music into one big pot of


cultural gumbo. Every day, a
little more spice goes into the
mix, and into the lives of
residents and visitors.
Art has never been in short
supply in New Orleans, with
numerous galleries, shops,
museums and architectural
designs adorning the city. It
has been a creative home
for such greats as author
Anne Rice and musicians
Fats Domino, Louis
Armstrong and Harry
Connick Jr., and has served
as a background for hun-
dreds of movie sets.
At any given time, pre-
Katrina, both the park and
square around St. Peter's Ca-
thedral in the Vieux Carre
(French Quarter) was filled
with cartoonists, sculptors,
mimes, dancers, musical per-
formers, artists and any
other imaginable type of art-
ist or performer. This was
what made New Orleans
New Orleans.
Many thought that Mardi
Gras would never return,
even after the city had got
back on its feet. Once again,
the surprise was on the nay-
sayers.
Mardi Gras took place this
year for eight days instead of
six to seven weeks, but the
floats still rolled. The bar
scene and many well-known
restaurants in the French
Quarter reopened just a few
weeks after the hurricane.
Art events and concerts are
now being announced for the
fall of 2006 and the spring of
2007, and musicians have
begun to pump out tunes
from studios and lounges
throughout the city and sur-
rounding parishes. Even the
street parades and festivals
that dotted the various towns
and communities have begun
to spring up again. People are
turning out in record num-
bers to celebrate the rebuild-
ing and recovery and just to
reunite with neighbors.
It will take years for the art
and cultural scene to return
to its fullest in the Crescent
City. The work has just be-
gun on the rebuilding of the
flooded areas and on the
massive levee system.
No one can predict when
the city will fully be restored,
or if it will ever fully regain
the magic and charm that it
once held. Gone are the days
of lazy New Orleans strolls
along the Mississippi, and at
least for now, the only sounds
are those of construction and
rebuilding.
But there is light at the end
of the tunnel.

Every sax that strikes up a
note on the streets of the
French Quarter and can be
heard over the sounds of con-
struction, every colorful pic-
ture that gets painted on the
sidewalks at St. Peter's Ca-
thedral, adds just a little
color to a very gray slate.
There is too much history
and heritage there to just let
it all get "washed away."
So far, we have all been
very fortunate and blessed
along the Gulf Coast this
hurricane season. Never
miss an opportunity to visit
a historical location, any-
where. Who knows, as the
city of New Orleans and the
Mississippi Gulf Coast
learned last year, you never
know what you have until it
is all taken away.

Affordable housing workshop attracts officials


By ANN McQUEEN
If the Walton County
Board of Commissioners
(BCC) accepts a plan put to-
gether by Dewey Wilson,
chief executive officer for Re-
gional Utilities, and a team
of volunteers, workforce
housing could be a reality in
Walton County in just a few
years.
: Wilson presented a plan to
the Walton County Board of
Commissioners that could
create a workforce housing
community in central Walton
COunty north of Hwy. 20 near
J.W. Hollington Road on a
400-acre section of a parcel of
land that the utility company
purchased in 2004.
; Wilson delivered his plan
to the BCC at a special work-
shop held Tuesday, Aug. 29 at
the South Walton Annex. The
BCC will consider Wilson's
plan at the Sept. 12 general
meeting, to be held at the
Sputh Walton Annex at 4
p,'m.
; Wilson found that the 400-
acre parcel is not necessary
tq the operations of the wa-
tqr and sewer utility. Know-
irig the challenges his staff
fdces when searching for af-
fordable homes close to work
tq buy or rent, Wilson thought
the parcel could be developed
irito a community that his
employees could live in. He
began a three-year process of
bringing together teams of
volunteers to create a feasible
plan for the development of
such a place, complete with
rqads, schools, and water and
sower service all at no cost
td the taxpayers.
"People move to Walton
County because they know
tlhere are good jobs and plenty
of opportunity here. Then
they learn they can't afford to
buy or rent a home close to
work. So they look elsewhere
to establish home, sometimes
as far away as Alabama.
We're losing too many .good
people because they can't af-
ford to live and work here,"
said Commissioner Kenneth
Pridgen, District 2, as he in-
troduced Wilson. "This issue
is critical, and I'm proud to be
here today."
Lloyd Blue, a local devel-
oper and affordable housing
advocate, presented prelimi-
nary site plans that his team
contributed to Wilson's vi-
sion. The site plans include
several parks and lakes, some
commercial areas, a 40-acre
s hool site with playgrounds
and fields, and other commu-
nity amenities as well as 619


initial homesites.
Blue previously agreed to
donate funds to the Walton
County School District to pur-
chase 20 of the 40 acres set
aside for the school. He pre-
sented a check to superinten-
dent Carlene Anderson that
is exchangeable for a deed to
the site, once details are
worked out and the plan is
officially adopted.
Mark Mustian, an attor-
ney with the Tallahassee firm
Nabors Giblin & Nickerson,
delivered a short presenta-
tion on the role an affordable
housing authority would play
in the execution of Wilson's
plan.
The housing authority, like
Regional Utilities, is essen-
tially a nonprofit corporation
sponsored by the county. Re-
gional Utilities will surplus
the 400-acre site to .the
county, which will in turn
convey it to the housing au-
thority. In order to pay for the
property, the housing author-
ity will issue bonds. This al-
lows the county to control the
asset without incurring the
liability, Mustian explained.
Since the authority is a non-
profit corporation, the plan
itself has no taxable value.
This also helps keep home
prices in the community
down.
Joseph Bear, vice presi-
dent, public finance group
with Crews and Associates,
explained that the authority
would repay the debt through
tax increment financing.
Such financing, he said,
eliminates as much interest
as possible. "We're standing
by and waiting to underwrite
this project," he said. "We're,
very excited to be.a part of
it."
Jeff Sharkey, a grant con-
sultant, presented informa-
tion about a "Community
Workforce Housing Innova-
tion Pilot Program," or
CWHIP, that was established
this year by the state.legisla-.
ture (HB1363) ...,, .
"We are absolutely right on
target for up to $5 million for
this project," Sharkey said.
Funds under this program
will be awarded through a
"Request for Proposal," or
RFP process to public-private
entities. Criteria for obtain-
ing CWHIP funding include,
'but are not limited to, half of
the units be set aside for "es-
sential services personnel."
These occupations can be
defined by a local SHIP coor-
dinator and often include
teachers, police officers, fire

fighters, county employees,
healthcare workers, and oth-
ers. Eighty percent of the
units built with CWHIP
funds should be available to
households earning incomes
up to 140 percent of the area
median income.
RFPs will be out at the be-
ginning of October. The pro-
cess closes in December, and
funding will be offered in
January 2007.
Blue set forth a 13-point
action list that urges the
county to take the steps nec-
essary to make the plan a re-
ality. A formal request will be
made at the Sept. 12 BCC
meeting.
"This legislation (HB1363)
fits perfectly with our
county," said state Sen.
Durrell Peaden, who at-
tended the presentation. "It's
a shame for us to have the
growth we have here and
have people live in Alabama,"
he added. Sen. Peaden helped
facilitate state approval for
the large-scale amendments
to the Walton County Land
Development Code that were
necessary for the project.
Wilson's plan includes a
stipulation that if the project
fails to materialize, the land
will revert to ownership by
Regional Utilities. The 40-
acre school site, however, will
remain with the school dis-
trict.
"This is the closest we've
come to finding a solution to
affordable housing," said
Commissioner Pridgen. "I
talk to people everyday about
not being able to find afford-
able homes. I think this is a
very good thing. Let's move
forward with this, And as
quickly as possible."

Invincible: familiar formula gets the Disney touch


By BRUCE COLLIER
Philadelphia must be full
of hopeful working stiffs with
dreams of athletic glory.
Sylvester Stallone got far
more mileage from this
premise than anyone could
have predicted, spinning five
tales over 15 years of Philly
boxer Rocky Balboa.
Disney has jumped on the
bandwagon with Invincible,
directed by Ericson Core.
Unlike the fictional Rocky,
the hero of this film is a real-
life gdy, south Philly school
teacher/bartender Vince
Papale.
The 30-year-old Papale,
his marriage broken, with
little or no prospects and des-
perate to make ends meet,
gets a shot in the form of an
open invitation to try out for
the Philadelphia Eagles.

This film is set in 1976,
following yet another losing
season for the team. Owner
Leonard Tose, played by
Michael Nouri, has hired a
new head coach, a California
college wonder named Dick
Vermeil, played by Greg
Kinnear. Vermeil comes up
with the idea as part of an
overall strategy to bring back
the team's "soul," and hope-
fully to recapture its dwin-
dling fan base, for the 1976
season.
Though he's played neigh-


borhood football all his life,
Papale was not a college
player, nor has he any expe-
rience in pro sports. Still,
with the encouragement of
his friends and a "what can I
lose?" philosophy, he tries out.
About half of
Philadelphia's male popula-
tionjoins him, in an amusing
montage of scenes in which
the disdainful Eagles and
their coaches whup the tar
out of the hopefuls, weeding
left and right. Out of hun-
dreds, Papale manages to
make the cut.
Things take a turn for the
tried-and-true at this point.
Papale finds himself ostra-
cized by the "real" players,
who take special delight in
welcoming the "old guy" to
the NFL.
The media, regarding this
as a short-lived human inter-
est hype, treat Papale to what
they figure will be his 15
minutes of fame.
I Owner Tose watches bale-
fully, glaring at Vermeil with
Papale's every fumble or fail-
ure.
All, of course, are proven-
wrong.
Sports history fans know
how the story plays out. I
didn't, but I had a feeling that
Disney wasn't about to make
a movie in praise of quitters
and losers.
The film is well-served by


its cast, with Mark Wahlberg
sweating and persevering as
Papale. Able support comes
from Kinnear, and from
Kevin Conway as Papale's
dad, Elizabeth Banks as his
love interest, Kirk Acevedo as
a loyal buddy, and a host of
other regular guys, mostly in
Papale's corner.


A fair amount of screen
time and talk is devoted to
the economic hard times in
Philadelphia at the time, and
to the near-miraculous effect
that a winning sports team
can have on a struggling city.
Whether that's true or not,
or whether you believe it or
not, the folks in this movie all

WATER CONSERVATION TIPS



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

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

* Retrofit all wasteful household faucets b\ installing aerators
with flow restrictors.

* Store drinking after in the refrigerator rather than letting the
tap run every lime \ou wanllt a cool glass of water.

* Insulate your \water pipes. You'll get hot water faster plus
avoid wasting water \\ while it heats up.

* If \ ou have a sw imming pool. consider a new \\ ater sa\ ing
pool filter. A single backflushing with traditional filter uses
from 180 to 250 gallons or more.

* Avoid flushing the toilet unnecessarily. Dispose of tissues,
insects and other such waste in a trash container rather than in
the toilet.

* Try to do one thing each day that will result in a savings of
water. Don't worry if it is minimal. Every drop counts and
every person can make a difference.

hiking, fishing and camping.
It is not uncommon for the
attentive hiker to observe a
variety of wildlife on one of
the park's three nature trails.
Deer tracks are everywhere,
and one trail leads directly
under an osprey nest.
.Licensed fishermen can
choose freshwater fishing in
Puddin' Head Lake or salt-
water fishing in Rocky
Bayou.
The park provides 42 well-
shaded campsites, some with
views of Rocky Bayou. This
is definitely not primitive
camping. Campsites include
electrical service, water,
ground grills, and picnic
tables ,and are immaculately
kept. The condition of these


sites is in no small part due
to the park volunteers.
Two of the volunteers are
long time Crestview resi-
dents Louis and Lola Becker.
"We enjoy working for the
park," Louis remarked. "We
believe in the state park sys-
tem," Lola added. The
Becker's have been volun-
teers for several months and
give all indications they will
be there for some time.
Kayak and canoe rentals
are available and the park
provides one of the best boat
launches in the area.
The park is open from 8
a.m. until sunset, 365 days a
year and is located at 4281
S.R. 20 Niceville. The park
can be contacted by calling
(850) 833-9144.


OWC wins three state job training

grants for allied health fields


00





THIS DOUBLE WIDE BOAT RAMP is one of the best in
the area.


Winning a trifecta of state
job training grants worth
more than $400,000 for
Okaloosa-Walton College's
nursing and allied health
programs was "like Christ-
mas in August," according to
Dr. Jill White, OWC senior
vice president for instruc-
tional services.
The largest grant was
$190,691 for a new allied
health career ladder program
that will further strengthen
the college's new paramedic
program launched this fall,
as well as support a new


Emergency Medical Techni-
cian (EMT) certificate pro-
gram slated to begin in 2007.
OWC anticipates that the
EMT certificate program
could begin as early as March
or April, 2007 once curricu-
lum development and hiring
of faculty are completed, ac-
cording to White.
The college also scored
with its Succeed proposal for
the college's new radiography
and emergency administra-
tion degree programs. "This
is a continuation grant for
the radiography program we
began this semester," ex-


plained White of the
$152,074 award. "This allows
us to complete the develop-
ment of the emergency ad-
ministration program and
provides, critical funding for
the second year require-
ments of the RAD Tech de-
gree program."
OWC also received a
$60,663 Succeed grant for
continuation of the expanded
registered nursing program
that White dubbed Energy
for Expanding Nursing Edu-
cation Regionally. This con-
tinuation grant will support
a 50 percent increase in the


number of students the col-
lege is able to accommodate
in the associate degree nurs-
ing program.
Energy will also continue
support for the innovative
curriculum strategy called
"Standardized Patient Labo-
ratory Simulation" project.
"Each step we're taking with
nursing and allied health
prigir.-tms reflects our com-
mitment to address the state
and local critical shortage of
registered nurses and other
health care professionals,"
White said.

BE IT ENACTED BY, THE PEOPLE
OF FLORIDA THAT Article X,
Florida Constitution, is amended to
add the following:
Section 27. Comprehensive
Statewide Tobacco Education And
Prevention Program. In order to pro-
tect people, especially youth, from
health hazards of using tobacco, in-
cluding addictive disorders, cancer,
cardiovascular diseases, and lung dis-
eases; and to discourage use of to-
bacco, particularly among youth, a
portion of the money that tobacco
companies pay to the State of Florida
under the Tobacco Sqtlement each
year shall be used to fund a compre-
hensive statewide tobacco education
and prevention program consistent
with recommendations of the U.S.
Centers for Disease Control and Pre-
vention (CDC), as follows:
(a) Program. The money appropri-
ated pursuant to this section shall be
used to fund a comprehensive state-
wide tobacco education and preven-
tion program consistent with the rec-
ommendations for effective program
components in the 1999 Best Prac-
tices for Comprehensive Tobacco
Control Programs of the CDC, as sucl
Best Practices may be amended by
the CDC. This program shall include,
at a minimum, the following compo-
nents, and may include additional
components that are also contained
within the CDC Best Practices, as
periodically amended, and that are ef-
fective at accomplishing the purpose
of this section, and that do not under-
mine the effectiveness of these re-
quired minimum components:
(1) an advertising campaign to dis-
courage the use of tobacco and to
educate people, especially youth,
about the health hazards of tobacco,
which shall be designed to be effec-
tive at achieving these goals and shall
include, but need not be limited to,
television, radio, and print advertising,
with no limitations on any individual
advertising medium utilized; and
which shall be funded at a level
equivalent to one-third of each total
annual appropriation required by this
section:
(2) evidence-based curricula and
programs to educate youth about to-
bacco and to discourage their use of
it, including, but not limited to, pro-
grams that involve youth, educate
youth about the health hazards of to-
bacco, help youth develop skills to
refuse tobacco, and demonstrate to
youth how to stop using tobacco;
(3) programs of local community-
based partnerships that discourage
the use of tobacco and work to edu-
cate people, especially youth, about
the health hazards of tobacco, with an
emphasis on programs that involve
youth and emphasize the prevention
and cessation of tobacco use;
(4) enforcement of laws, regulations,
and policies against the sale or other
provision of tobacco to minors, and the
possession of tobacco by minors; and
(5) publicly-reported annual evalu-
ations to ensure that moneys appro-
priated pursuant to this section are
spent properly, which shall include
evaluation of the program's effective-
ness in reducing and preventing to-


bacco use, and annual recommenda-
tions for improvements to enhance the
program's effectiveness, which are to
include comparisons to similar pro-
grams proven to be effective in other
states, as well as comparisons to CDC
Best Practices, including amendments
thereto.
(b) Funding. In every year begin-
ning with the calendar year after vot-
ers approve this amendment, the
Florida Legislature shall appropriate,
for the purpose expressed herein,
from the total gross funds that tobacco
companies pay to the State of Florida
under the Tobacco Settlement, an
amount equal to fifteen percent of
such funds paid to the State in 2005;
and the appropriation required by this
section shall be adjusted annually for
inflation, using the Consumer Price In-
dex as published by the United States
Department of Labor.
(c) Definitions. "Tobacco" includes,
without limitation, tobacco itself and
tobacco products that include tobacco
and are intended or expected for hu-
man use or consumption, including,
but not limited to, cigarettes, cigars,.
pipe tobacco, and smokeless tobacco.
The "Tobacco Settlement" means that
certain Settlement Agreement dated
August 25, 1997, entered into in settle-
ment of the case styled as State of
Florida, et al. v. American Tobacco
Company, et al., Case No. 95-1466
AH (Fla. 15th Cir. Ct.), as amended by
Stipulation of Amendment dated Sep-
tember 11, 1998; and includes any
subsequent amendments and succes-
sor agreements. "Youth" includes mi-
nors and young adults.
(d) Effective Date. This amendment
shall become effective immediately
upon approval by the voters.

Financial Impact Statement:
This amendment requires state gov-
ernment to appropriate approximately
$57 million in 2007 for the Compre-
hensive Statewide Tobacco Education
and Prevention Program. Thereafter,
this amount will increase annually with
inflation. This spending is expected to
reduce tobacco consumption. As a re-
sult, some long-term savings to state
and local government health and in-
surance programs are probable, but
indeterminate. Also, minor revenue
loss to state government is probable,'
but indeterminate.
