A SIGN OF THE TIMES? Many businesses are seeing huge increases in insurance costs, despite having few claims and
making no major changes to the business or the structure.


ENGINE RECOVERED FROM FATAL PLANE CRASH
in Walton County.

Businesses see a storm of rate increases



Low insurance rates-



gone with the wind


By Leigh Stricklnad
Local business owner Dr.
Jay Blackwood of the Walton
County Animal Clinic was
dropped by his insurance
company. The notice said
that guidelines "no longer
permit the underwriting of
commercial properties built
prior to 1995." This was
based, it said, "on the wind
exposure at the location" of
the building.

When he found a new
insurance company, Black-
wood had to pay $7,200 for
one year of coverage, almost
350 percent more than his
previous bill.
This drastic rise in the
cost of insurance has been
widely attributed to what
some have called "a
hurricane crisis."
According to State
Representative Don Brown,
of DeFuniak Springs, the
hurricane seasons of 2004
and 2005 resulted in insured
losses of $38.9 billion. That
bill, he said, has to be paid
and will be paid either
through insurance pre-
miums or taxes.
Chuck Lawson, agent for
State Farm in DeFuniak
Springs, likewise cited
nature as the cause of
increases. "Reinsurance,


hurricanes," he said. "That's
the driving factors."
Chris Neal, an official
from State Farm, spoke
about rising insurance costs
at a press conference held at.
the Walton County Chamber
of Commerce on Thursday.
According to Neal, some of
the cost increase comes from
the increased costs of labor,
roofing, and concrete. Gas
prices also impact costs, he
said.
"Rates in the future are
going to depend on
hurricanes," Neal said.. He
also said, "A mild season will
at least lead to soge
stabilization," meaning that,
given a relatively inactive
hurricane season, rates
should not double or triple in
the coming year, but should
hold steady.
"We live today in a new
paradigm," Representative
Brown said. Prior to the 2004
season, Hurricane Andrew in
1992 was the last cause of
major changes in the
insurance industry. That
storm, he said, caused some
10 insurance companies to
go bankrupt.
However, Andrew did not
prepare the industry for
seasons like those of 2004
and 2005. "We never gave
consideration to multiple


major events or to two back-
to-back years," Brown said.
Neal said that before
2004, companies looked at
the possibility of one big
storm, like Andrew, and'/so
were not prepared for four
storms hitting Florida in one
season.
According to Brown,
policymakers must now deal
with the new circumstances.
With 80 percent of Florida
having coastal exposure, he
said, "We've got a serious
challenge."
Policymakers aren't the .
only ones addressing the
issue. State officials, too, are
attempting to aid businesses
threatened by increased
costs.
Last month, Florida
governor Jeb Bush and his
cabinet ,approved the
-establishment of a property
and ,casualty joint under-
writing association that
would make commercial
property insurance available
to businesses in Florida that
were unable to find coverage.
Claims would be paid with
taxpayer dollars through the
state and through fees
tacked on to premiums of
private insurance providers.
On August 18, Florida
Insurance Commissioner
Kevin McCarty announced


that the statutory require-
ments had been met to
activate such a state-run
commercial insurance unit.
McCarty said, "We will
continue working to.
complete this plan as quickly
as possible so we can bring
some relief 'to those
businesses faced with losing
their insurance.",
In spite of efforts made by
the state, relief for
businesses will take time.
Brown said, "There are no
easy solutions. There are no
fast solutions."

In the meantime,
insurance rate increases are
affecting the economy of
Walton County. ,
Bob Smith of the Walton
County Economic. Develop-
ment Council said of the
insurance rate increase, "It
should be a very, big concern
to us right now."
"The cost of business
insurance is sky-rocketing,"
Smith said. "When
insurance goes up, the cost
of doing business goes up.
Everyone's anticipating
drastic rises. Some people
are concerned about if
they're going to be able to get
insurance at all. It'll play a
big role in the development
of Walton County."

A Panama City man was
killed when the plane he was
flying crashed into a wooded
area in Walton County at
around 11:30 a.m. on Friday,
Sept. 1.
The crash occurred near
Argyle. on Hosie Adams
Road off of C.R. 183. The
crash site was some distance
from the road, requiring the
Division of Forest ry to cut a
road into the woods to access
the site.
The aircraft. was identi-
fied as a six-passenger
Mitsubishi MU2, owned by
Intercontinental Jet, Inc.,
based in Tulsa, OK. The pi-
lot and sole occupant was
Buddy Head, 64, of Panama
City.
The airplane was report-
edly flying from Tulsa,
bound for Panama City-Bay
County International Air-
port.
Walton County Sheriff's
Office (WCSO) secured the
scene, and hazardous mate-
rials trucks were called in to


help clean up the fuel, which:
one worker said could be
smelled some distance from
the crash site.
Officials from the Federal
Aviation Administration
(FAA) and National Trans-
portation Safety Board
i NTSB) joined the investiga-
tion.
NTSB's Aaron Sauer said
that the site has been sur-
veyed, v wreckage collected
and documented, and the
aircraft removed for further
investigation. Also under
scrutiny will be air traffic
control communications and
weather radar information.
A wing and an engine
were subsequently recovered
a little over half a mile from
the main site.
Neither Sauer nor any
other investigating person-
nel would comment on
whether the wing fell from
the plane, or on any other
possible causes of the crash.
Authorities said that the in-
vestigation may take several
months.

STATE FARM PUBLIC
AFFAIRS manager Chris
Neal speaks at hurricane in-
surance press conference.


The Walton .County
Chamber of Commerce spon-
sored two days of presenta-
tions and discussions about
insurance, property risk, and
the "hurricane crisis" in
Florida following theta 2004
and 2Q05 storm seasons on
the Gulf Coast.
A press conference was
held on August 31 at the
chamber's Santa Rosa Beach
office. The subject was ad-
dressed in greater detail at
the chamber's First Friday
Brerakfast on September 1
in DeFuniak Springs.
Chris Neal, public affairs
manager of State Farm In-
surance, presented informa-
tion on the changes in prop-


the year of catastrophic Hur-
ricane Andrew.
A Category 5 hurricane,
Andrew caused $26 billion in
damage in the Bahamas,
south Florida, and south cen-
tral Louisiaha, and was the
worst Atlantic storm in re-
corded U.S. history until last
year's Hurricane Katrina.
According to figures sup-
plied by State Farm, in 1995,
Hurricanes Erin and Opal
caused $1.8 billion in dam-
age, followed by Earl in 1998
with $101 million, and Irene
in 1999, with $300 million in
damage.
In 2004, Hurricane Ivan

$4.11 billion, and $240 mil-


The same State Farm fig-
ures show Florida insurance
industry revenues for the pe-
riod of 1992-2003 were $15.5

and $8.7 billion in total pre-

overall total of $24.2 billion
in premiums for the period of
1992-2005.
Between 1992 2005, the
total. of property insurance
claims paid in Florida for
hurricane damage was $67

This resulted in a net loss
of $42.8 billion, excluding
regular claims and expenses,

DeFuniak man found dead in Lake DeFuniak


By BRUCE COLLIER
The body of DeFuniak resi-
dent John David Langford,
43, was found floating in
Lake DeFuniak on the morn-
ing on Aug. 31.
According to a statement
made by the DeFuniak


Springs Police Department
(DFSPD), a fisherman had
noticed something floating in
the water, but did not recog-
nize it as a body until day-
light.
Officers and personnel
from the state Medical Exam-


iner removed the body, which
was floating about 75 feet off-
shore.
Investigator Bill Chapman
said that there was no evi-
dence of foul play, but an in-
vestigation is continuing.
An autopsy was held over


the weekend, attended by
Chapman and assisting in-
vestigator Jason Barley.
DFSPD spokesman Officer
Eddie Nelson said that the
official cause of death has not
been determined, pending
results of toxicology tests.

By BRUCE COLLIER
The DeFuniak Springs Po-

has named Officer Eddie E.
Nelson as public information
officer (PIO) for the depart-
ment. Nelson said that his
family has resided in this
area for five generations.
"It feels good to be back
home," he said. Nelson began
his duties at DFSPD in May.
He also serves as a patrol of-
ficer.
Nelson hopes to act as a
"solid bridge from the depart-
ment-to'the media,", and from


there to the public, which he
acknowledges gets most of its
information about the police
department and its investiga-
tions from the media.
In addition to general me-
dia relations, Nelson will be
responsible for press releases
and reports, crime prevention
information, and has helped
distribute wanted notices
with suspect photos and po-
lice artist sketches.
Nelson said that he is also
considering a regular, infor-
mational series on the history
and 'background of the

On Monday, Labor Day
was observed by millions in
the United States and
Canada.
Modern Labor Day obser-
vances can be traced back to
,the ancient Roman festival of
Floralia. Celebrated on the
first of May, this festival of
singing, dancing, and flower-
decked parades began to be
observed as May Day in parts
of Europe. Traditionally,
people would take this day off
with or without the approval
of their employer. May Day,
then, was quickly associated
with the labor movements of
the 1880s. The majority of
the world celebrates Labor'
Day on the first of May.
During the Industrial
Revolution, factory workers
worked as many as 16 hours
a day Monday through Sat-
urday. In an attempt to im-
prove conditions, labor
unions in the U.S. and in
Canada demanded that as of
May 1, 1886, the workday be
limited to eight hours. When
employers refused, workers,
went on strike.
At an 1889 meeting of So-
cialist parties in Paris, it was
declared that May 1, 1890
would be an international
day of demonstrations for the
eight-hour workday. That
date became an annual day
for workers to demand better
working conditions.
Several labor organiza-
tions in the U.S..were in fa-
vor of observing the date, but
the Knights of Labor pushed
for an annual parade began

President Grover Cleveland
supported the Knights of La-
bor and their choice for the
observance. Thus, the Ameri-
can Labor Day began, to be
celebrated on the first Mon-
day in the'month of Septem-
ber in the 1880s.
Now, over one hundred
years later, American work-
ers and schoolchildren alike
take the day off to relax,
spend time with their fami-
lies, and travel. It is not un-
common to, see celebrations
at picnics and barbecues with
the setting off of fireworks
and participation in water
sports. Many people also use
the extended weekend to
travel.
In Walton County, Labor
Day was a day of little labor.'
Most businesses were closed
as families enjoyed backyard
cook-outs and a day of rest.
Others flocked to local
parks and boat launches for
some fun in the sun on this
holiday weekend, summer's
last stand before cooler days
arrive.

dance at the meeting will not
be interpreted as a commit-
ment. The meeting takes
place at 6 p.m. at the First


Baptist Church. That's at
Live Oak and 11th, and the
door will be marked with a
Relay sign. Refreshments
will be provided.
The most urgent needs are
for a team development chair
and for someone to lead the
effort for corporate sponsor-
ship. Team development
needs a person with deep
roots in the community, a

acquaintance, and a talent
for leadership and organiza-
tion. Energy and willingness
are pre-requisites, along with
the ability to commit to an
average of 2-4 hours per

LETTERS TO THEEDITOR

PERSONAL COMMENTS


The Race Is On


By RON KELLEY
The Primary Election is over. Walton residents went to
the polls 'Ta, .,la and chose their party representatives for
the November Ch tn 1ril Election. Although not a presiden-
tial election year, Floridians are choosing their next gover-
o,.:. their next U,S, senator and other important state of-
i 1ni- vvoters are also choosing their next state represen-
.i'.\< several judges, county commissioners, school board
members and a .,i.', i-or of elections. These are all vitally
io-'.ut'1 jobs that will have a direct impact on our daily
i, ,.-s ',.i otherr turnout was certainly less than dazzling. Of
course, that means that things are going to be fairly quiet
around here for a while, because if you didn't vote, you don't
get to complain.
I'm sorry, but those are the rules. The most you can do is
hope that the people who did vote were all. bright, intelli-
gent, well-informed citizens who followed all the issues,
heard all of the candidates and then made great choices,
the same choices you would have made had you voted.
Be eond that, we don't want to hear from you. You gave up
your right to vote, so just sit back and let the rest of us take
it ifrnm here.
If that doesn't seem fair to you, too bad. There is only one
cure. Register to vote in the November election and go vote.



Editor,
If as much money can be saved as Ryan Douglas says'by
using "in-house" work crews instead of contractors, then by
all means "in-house" is the way to go.
According to an article in the Herald of August 17, Mr.
Douglas is quoted as saying that paving a mile of dirt road
can vary from $100,000 to $300,000 depending on whether
it is done "in-house" or by contract. It seems logical to as-
sume the public works honcho is in regular contact with the
BCC and the savings by using "in-house" crews are known
to the BCC.
I have observed the work of "in-house" crews and they
seem to be well done and adequate. One doesn't have to be
experienced in road building and paving to notice that in
going from dirt to pavement the lion's share of the work is
in building they road bed. Apparently most of that can be
done by "in-house" crews.
I also agree with the policy that if land owners won't do-
nate a few feet of their land so the road can be widened for
paving, then go where it will be donated. There is only one
problem with that. Sometimes there will be a' holdout who
refuses to donated. Absentee landowners seem to be the most
reluctant. That kind of attitude can deprive all others on
the road from enjoying the benefits of pavement. Ican think
of an ugly name to call such people, but I will forgo that
pleasure here.

Voting should be mandatory, it's that important.
By the way, has anyone else been getting calls with auto-
. mated campaign pitches? I don't know about you, but tele-
marketers have never made a sale with me. I hate being
interrupted at home by some pre-recorded sales pitch for
something I don't want or need. It's the same way with these
canned political calls. Whoever thought this would be a good
idea, should be fired immediately and sent home because
that person just doesn't get it.
Regarding the voting process, many people wrangled with
voting for judges that they knew little or nothing about. I
was fortunate enough to see and hear those candidates speak
briefly at one forum. I'm glad they participated. That's some-
thing I hope we see more often. Too many times, we vote or
don't vote for judges without having any knowledge of their
abilities, background or experience. I need more than a high-
way sign to make an informed decision, so it was nice to
have a chance to hear these men speak.
One of the biggest political issues in the state is the run-
away rise in insurance rates for Florida residents. I empha-
size Florida residents because national insurance compa-
nies are still be raking in huge profits in other states and
regions that are not typically the target of catastrophic
weather. So, although Florida branches have taken a beat-
ing, the big companies will still turn in another profitable
year without so much as a blink.
It's true that we have a hurricane crisis, but we also have
an insurance crisis. It will take radical measures to provide
any relief to citizens and everyone must get involved in the
process. We need insurance company officials working with
legislators' who are hearing from the citizens who are foot-
ing the bill. It's a complex issue, made worse by the fact that
the whole issue is wrapped up in big money and closed-door
politics.
I would direct you to three stories in this week's edition.
Two are written by our own staff, Assistant Editor Bruce
Collier, and reporter Leigh Strickland. The third is in our
'News From The Capitol' feature. All deal with different in-
surance issues and all three affect you in one way or an-
other.
By the way, I am often asked about our on-line address. It
is www.defuniakherald.com. We do not put the entire paper
on-line, but we don't charge for access either. On-line read-
ers will find three to four of our top stories, plus additional
headlines, the legal section and our classified ads. For those
of you who follow the legal ads closely, remember that the
Herald-Breeze is the only paper that qualifies under the law
to publish Walton County legal ads, so if it's not in the Her-
ald-Breeze, it's not a legal ad.
As for finding time to vote, I'll close with a final word from
H. J. Brown, who said, "Don't say you don't have enough
time. You have exactly the same nu-mber of ho4strss0eD day a
that were given to Helen Keller, Louis Pasteur, Michelangelo,
Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jeffers,o,,.and '
Albert Einstein."
Guess I'll see you at the polls in November!




Editor,
What luck in politics!
Many years ago, a friend in an adjoining county told me
this story about his running for a political office.
In the days when he was running, people cooked on wood
stoves. He told me he kindled 32 fires in wood stoves; car-
ried 32 buckets of water for an old women; helped gather
seven loads of corn and pulled 110 bundles of fodder; walked
4,065 miles, shook hands 9,010 times; told over 9,000 lies
and talked enough to make 10,000 volumes; attended 28
revival meetings, was baptized four times by immersion; and
twice by some other way; made love to nine grass widows,
got dog-bit nine times. And then got the hell beat out of
him.

LETRTOTEEITOR.


Editor,
The names of presidents beginning in the 1920's up to,
and including the present one. (D)=Democrat,
(R)=Republican, (1)=father and (2)=son.
Hoover(R), Roosevelt, Truman(D), Eisenhower(R),
Kennedy(D), Johnson(D), Nixon(R), Ford(R), Carter(D),
Reagan(R), Bush(R) (1), Clinton(D), Bush(R) (2).
The senior citizens that were born during the twenties
and are still among us, can remember the differences in a
Democrat and a Republican over these past 86 years. The
Democrats were and still are moderate politicians, while
the Republicans have managed to become a right-wing con-
servative party.
President J. Edger Hoover, a conservative Republican,
managed to give us the worse depression ever, followed by
President Franklin Roosevelt, who made every effort to im-
prove the economy. There can be no doubt as to the improve-
ment of our economy during the years of Franklin Roosevelt,
Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, Ford and
Carter and Clinton. With the opposite happening with the
other presidents Herbert Hoover, Reagan and Bush(l) and
Bush(2) as of this date.
As of the years of the 1920's our national debt was $24
billion dollars, in the year of 1946 the national debt was
$269 billion dollars.
With the following Republicans, J. Edger Hoover, Ronald
Reagan, Bush(l) and Bush(2) to date, it exceeds $8 trillion
dollars + plus? The Baby Boomers, their children and their
grandchildren are losers for the rest of their lives.
Where were the voters and the state laws of these past
two elections, and we could have saved trillions of dollars,
and in addition, we could and should have prevented the
deaths. In addition, we could have prevented the military
and civilian deaths daily, not to mention the thousands of
Iraq people that have been killed, not to mention those that
will suffer for the rest of their lives just to satisfy one indi-
vidual.

Taste of the
farm life on
Rocking BAB
Ranch
By JEFFREY POWELL
All across America people
are seeking to rediscover
their rural roots. In an era of
cell phones and high speed
Internet most Americans to-
day will never know what it
is like to grow up or work on
a farm.
A visit to the 300-acre
Rocking BAB Ranch near
Defuniak Springs can give
adults and children a
glimpse into farming life.
"We want people to have
the experience of being on a
working farm," said Rocking
BAB manager Josh Nelson.
Nelson raises an array of
animals on the ranch. There
are goats and miniature
Mediterranean donkeys by
the multitude and any num-
ber of fowl to include peafowl
(peacocks), several chicken
varieties and turkeys galore.
All fowl raised on the Rock-
ing BAB are hatched in the
ranch's antique incubators
under the close supervision
of Nelson. The hatchlings are
then carefully monitored to
keep them healthy and free
of diseases.
The Rocking BAB Ranch is
participating in a program of
agricultural tourism in asso-
ciation with the Walton
County Tourist Development
Council (TDC). This program
provides visitors and locals
alike an opportunity to expe-
rience less traveled areas of
Walton County.
"Agricultural tourism loca-
tions exemplify Walton
County's diversity," said TDC
New Product Development
Manager Tiffany McCaskill.
Persons interested in visiting
the Rocking BAB Ranch can
contact Josh Nelson at (850)
865-5812 or visit
www.rockingbabranch.com.
The Rocking BAB is lo-
cated at .2652 Woodyard
Road in Defuniak Springs.

Stanley House Celebrates Grandparents & National Assisted Living Week!

Stanley House Assisted Living Community is celebrating Grandparent's Day this Sunday, September 10, and National Assisted Living Week September 10-16.
The week is designed to provide a unique opportunity to bring together residents, families, staff, volunteers, and the community to celebrate our elders and the services
provided within assisted living communities. The theme this year is "Hearts in Harmony". This theme was selected to recognize the shared desire to have care delivered
in a loving manner that respects resident's preferences and maintains their independence and dignity. (This is what Stanley House does BEST)!
Grandparent's Day traditionally kicks off a fun week for all! The residents will be presented with a personalized "on the Day You Were Born" album, designed and cre-
ated by the Life Enrichment Department. A special luncheon will be served, complete with dessert prepared by the residents. Dinner boasts of a "Pizza Party" for all to
enjoy.
Monday is dedicated to recognizing our very special caregivers, who share their hearts with our seniors on a daily basis. Other events planned for the week include,
"Tacky Tourist Day", a patio cookout, "Pamper Yourself', by Mary Kay Cosmetics, an ice cream social, and various other fun activities! ,
Every day offers fun and friends at Stanley House. This is full service living at its best, allowing our residents to remain active and maximizing their independence.
Stanley House Assisted Living is also pleased to offer memory care for those dealing with the challenges of dementia and Alzheimer's disease through our Ray of
Sunshine program. We celebrate the "forever" memories and provide assistance when some memories begin to fade. This program is designed so that residents remain as
independent as possible, and each resident's service plan is as individual as the resident. We encourage everyone
involved to share personal preferences and make choices about their care.
Services at Stanley House include: Assistance with medication management, special reminders for meal times,
activities, and orientation to time and place. We provide assistance with all personal care and weekly housekeeping,
laundry and maintenance services. Each entrance and exit to the house is secured twenty-four hours a day. The beau-
-': tiful, large completely enclosed courtyard allows all residents to enjoy the outdoors in complete safety.
i .1 Each resident treasures thq privacy of their own studio or one-bedroom apartment equipped with individual tem-
perature control, a large private bathroom with walk-in shower, and a kitchenette complete with refrigerator, freezer,
and microwave oven. For additional security, there are'emergency call-lights to access staff for assistance 24/7.
For short-term stays, respite care provides services to those needing some care and assistance after a hospital stay,
recent surgery, or if caregivers want to take a much needed break. Each respite suite is graciously furnished with all
the comforts of home, and includes personal and memory care assistance. Respite suites can be rented for a s little as
:'" !:! _' :: .a weekend stay or for as long as a month or two. Stanley House offers the finest quality of care, whether for short to
long term care.
Stanley House is locally owned and operated and is centrally located at 718 Walton Road in DeFuniak Springs.

District survey brings Econfina history to life


During the Civil War, a
Union raiding party may
have traveled up Econfina
Creek and burnt down
Adams' Mill, in addition to
capturing two neighbors, Wil-
liam A. and Walter R. Gainer.
Charred ruins of the early
1800s mill were located east
of the creek, and were among
many detailed finds of an ar-
chaeological survey re-
quested recently by the
Northwest Florida Water
Management District.
The survey identifies and
records archaeological sites
to help the District protect
and preserve them. It was
conducted by Greg Mikell,


principal investigator with
Panamerican Consultants,
Inc, and was funded through
a Historic Preservation
Grant-in-Aid from the
Florida Department of
State.
"The survey was com-
pleted so that the District
could avoid disturbing pre-
historic and historic ar-
chaeological sites as it per-
forms environmental resto-
ration and protection activi-
ties on public lands," said
William 0. Cleckley, Direc-
tor of the District's Division
of Land Management and
Acquisition.
To date, surveys of the


Econfina Creek Water Man-
agement Area have identi-
fied over 120 archaeological
sites, including three historic
cemeteries, numerous pre-
historic sites, and several
sites with prehistoric and
early American historic
components.
The most recent survey
closely examined two Gainer
family homesteads and the
Adam's mill site along
Econfina Creek, near SR 20.
Reconnaissance level ar-
chaeological surveys were
also conducted on two nearby
District properties, one
known as the Carter tract in
the Sand Hill Lakes area, and


the other known as Hobb's
Pasture at the confluence of
Cedar and Econfina creeks.
"We would like to bring
alive the region's rich his-
tory through an interpretive
center with educational
kiosks, as well as an. inter-
pretive driving tour," said
Cleckley. "The tour would
emphasize both the history
and the environmental sen-
sitivity of the area's natural
resources, especially its wa-
ter resources. Sites would
include several early 1800s
homesteads and mill sites of
the early settlement period."
The proposed interpreta-
tive center would be located


on the last Gainer home-
stead adjacent to Hwy. 20.
Cleckley envisions a drive
through display where trav-
elers could also rest and en-
joy a picnic. In addition they
could soak in the cultural,
historical and environmental
importance of Econfina Creek
and the surrounding area,
which recharges its world
class springs. The first
Gainer
homestead and family
cemetery, located on nearby
private property may also
be included if descendents
agree to it.
William Gainer, a land
surveyor and engineer, first
marched through with An-
drew Jackson's troops in
1818. He returned to the
cool, clear creek with his
family, slaves and livestock
in 1824. There hesettled
permanently and kept dia-
ries of daily life.
Archaeologists also iden-
tified the home of the two
Gainer's sons captured by
Union troops, William
Augustus and Walter Riley,
perhaps about the same
time as Adams' Mill was set
ablaze. Archaeologists iden-
tified the mill ruins and docu-
mented the home site of Rob-
ert C. Adams, as well' as a
nearby archaic or prehis-
toric stone scatter.
Numerous sites in the
Econfina WMA may be eli-

gible for nomination to the
National Register of Historic
Places. However, archaeolo-
gists found some already
threatened by erosion, rec-
reation development and
unauthorized vehicular traf-
fic. The District is taking
measures to address these
impacts.
"Archeologists also
cleared up the origin of sev-
eral structures on District
lands that had not been pre-
viously surveyed," Cleckley
said. "What we thought
were remains of the old

Yes! You can manage your own building project!



Learn how at the FREE building seminar in DeFuniak Sept. 14


Thinking about
.building a new home
or addition but hesitant
about managing your own
project? Set your worries
aside and get ready to
take control!
Learn how at the
free building seminar
September 14, 7 p.m., at
the Chautauqua Building
on Circle Dr. in DeFuniak
Springs. The informative
free seminar will be
conducted by building
professionals with
UBuildIt-Destin.
"Attending this free
seminar is the perfect first
step for anyone thinking
about managing their
own building project
in the DeFuniak area,
said Bill Crawford,
UBuildIt-Destin planning
consultant and owner.
For those who have
plans to build a new
home in the DeFuniak
area but never considered
managing the project, the
free UBuildIt seminar can
show them a better way.
"We are putting
people in control of
building their perfect
dream home, or
remodeling their existing


home, while saving
thousands of dollars in the
process," said Crawford.
Have no building
experience? Crawford
says you have nothing to
fear.
"Most of the people
building a new home or
addition with the help
of UBuildIt are just
like you," explained
Crawford. "With
UBuildIt by their side,
local owner-builders are
successful without any
contracting experience
and without ever so much
as hammering a nail."
By providing
knowledge and
builder experience,
professional UBuildIt
building consultants
take the mystery out of
the building process.
UBuildIt owner-builders
simply spend a little time
overseeing the project
each day.
"With our guidance
and knowledge of the
DeFuniak Springs area,
we can help just about
anyone can do it,"
Crawford promises.
UBuildIt construction
consultants not only


give their customers the
project planning tools to
make the most efficient
use of their valuable time,
they are behind them
every step of the way.
UBuildIt can help owner-
builders choose their
home site, establish a
budget, select home plans
that fit the customer's
land, budget and
requirements, and walk
them through the loan and
permitting process.
UBuildIt provides
a list of proven and
qualified subcontractors
and suppliers who are
willing to provide volume
discounts to UBuildIt
clients, and they will help
the client select the right
subcontractors for them
and their project.
"UBuildIt provides
step-by-step guidance
through the entire
construction process
from clearing the
land to move-in," said
Larry Jones, UBuildIt-
Destin chief construction
consultant.
The amount of
help UBuildIt provides
is determined by the
customer. Some require


more services than
others, depending on
their knowledge and
experience with the
building industry.
While many of
UBuildIt's customers
choose only to manage
their project, others save
even more or get more
home for their money
- by doing some of
the construction work,
painting or site clean up
themselves.
"How much one


saves is truly up to
the individual," said
Crawford. "The typical
cost savings among our
owner-builders is 20-
to 30 percent."
Don't think UBuildIt
is just for smaller
projects. UBuildlt has
clients with budgets as
high as $1.1 million.
"Even for large
projects and budgets, it's
all about getting the most
value," said Crawford.
Don't miss out on


this special opportunity.
Take the first step to
building your dream
home and getting more
for your money. Attend
the free, no obligation
building seminar in
DeFuniak Springs and see
if becoming an owner-
builder is right for you.
Simply call UBuildIt
today at 650-5039. to save
your seat.

UBuildit provides step-by-step guidance through the entire construction
process, including site visits with the owner-builder during construction.
Detailed planning and UBuildIt financial management tools helped this
owner-builder move up from vinyl siding to brick and stay in budget.

HISTORY
Greenhead School, on the
Carter tract, turned out to
be the former home of
,Eleanor Dykes. The re-
mains of the school were lo-
cated just 150 yards north,
of her house. Also, evidence,
of the often, mentioned Dykes'
Mill had disappeared. How-
ever, archaeologists did un-
earth remnants of the mill
residence, occupied either by
a mill keeper or its owner,
James Dykes. They also
found historical references to
the Dykes family building
mills in the area, but not spe-
cifically on Pine Log creek at
Dykes Mill Pond."
Remains of dams, canals
and other water control
structures built by Fitzhugh
Carter in the early 1950s
were also recorded. Some

of 32 prehistoric and historic
sites were recorded on the
Carter tract.
',jHobb's Pasture,"
Cleckley added, "'was rnot as
impressive because, though
it was the site of an ancient
Indian village, it was picked
almost clean of artifacts
prior to District ownership."
Nonetheless, the survey
did record an early- to mid-
1900s earthworks and por-
table sawmill site, as well as
eight prehistoric sites on the
Hobb's property. All of this
evidence adds up to a story
of prehistoric and historic
settlement that that occurred
because of the region's clear,
clean productive waters.

A property owner ques-
tioned Neal regarding the re-
cent 105 percent increase in
his property insurance, and
asked whether Florida per-
mitted companies to "cherry-
pick" counties in which to
raise rates.
Neal said that the law al-
lows rate increases, but that
they cannot be "discrimina-
tory."
State Representative Don
Brown, who attended the
press conference and break-
fast, said that Florida law
prohibits "redlining" (cherry-
picking) in rate increases.
Brown also said that "po-
litical pressure" to keep rates
low has led to deficits being
financed through more debt,
and added that 80 percent of
Florida's total risk exposure
from hurricanes cpmes from
coastal property.
"[W]e have built ourself a
legacy that has to be dealt
with under this paradigm."
Florida Governor Jeb Bush
has ordered the formation of
a Property and Casualty In-
surance Reform Committee,
of which Brown is a member.
Brown framed the problem
as having three components,
a political one, with residents
in need of relief now, an in-
surance problem of rates and
costs, and a "hurricane" prob-
lem.
Specifically, Brown said
that weather experts seem to
concur that we are in a cycle
of hurricanes and tropical
storm activity that could last
10 to 15 years.
With Florida leading'the
nation in risk exposure,
Brown said, short term solu-
tions may not work, and in-
surance companies and prop-
erty owners "may have to do
things differently."

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

PUBLIC NOTICE

Walton County, Florida, is conducting a public hearing for the New Access Road West and New Access Road East
PD&E Study, FPID 413039-1-54-01. The public hearing will be held Thursday, September 14"', 2006 at the Walton
County Coastal Branch Library, 336 Greenway Trail, Santa Rosa Beach, Florida. This hearing is being conducted to
provide an opportunity for interested persons to express their views concerning the location; conceptual design; and
social, economic and environmental effects of this project.

The proposed project would provide two new roads located north of and generally parallel to US 98 (SR 30). The New
Access Road West would follow new alignment from Mack Bayou Road to US 331. The New Access Road East
would follow mostly new alignment from US,331 to CR 395. Together, the proposed new roadways cover a distance
of approximately 12 miles. The new roadways would have three typical sections: a high-speed four-lane divided
suburban typical section, a high-speed two-lane divided suburban typical section, and a low-speed urban four-lane
typical section.

Right-of-way acquisition is proposed. Business and residential ._ .... ..... ..
relocations may be associated with the project. Potential -,. -.,--
encroachment on wetlands and floodplains have been identified .
as a result of-this study and may be given special consideration
under Executive Orders 11990 and 11988. Access management
standards developed by the Florida Department of "'
Transportation under Section 335.18, Florida Statues to protect
public safety, provide for mobility and preserve functional '4
integrity of the road will be addressed. These standards affect o r
driveway access and median openings along the proposed :."
improvement. This Hearing will be held in accordance with 23-
CFR 771 and Section 339.155, Florida Statutes. The project is
being developed to comply with Titles VI and VIII of the Civil .'.

MOVIE REVIEW
The Illusionist bears watching


THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 2006


By BRUCE COLLIER
Neil Burger's The Illusion-
ist is one of those mysteries
that lays everything out for
you, all along the way, then
shows you what you missed
by not watching, or by as-
suming that everything is
just as it looks.
The film is set in late-19th
century Vienna, under the
rule of the Habsburg Em-
peror Franz Josef II. The ag-
ing emperor, never pictured,
keeps himself informed of
his citizens' every word and
move by an enormous net-
work of police and informers,
moving smoothly in and out
of restaurants, businesses,
and theatres.
In this film, the police are
led by Inspector Uhl, played
by Paul Giamatti. Uhl is
modest, unobtrusive, and ur-
bane, a company man right
down to his ambition.
Uhl is ordered to investi-
gate the background of
Eisenheim the Illusionist, a
professional magician with a
devoted following, playing to
packed houses in a Viennese
theatre.
Uhl's orders come not from
the throne, but from its heir,
Crown Prince Leopold,
played by Rufus Sewell. The
volatile Leopold suspects his
fiancee, Sophie, played by
Jessica Biel, has a past ro-
mantic connection with the
mysterious Eisenheim. Uhl's
instructions are to epose
this and ruin the magician.
Eisenheim and Sophie do
have a connection, as we see
at the beginning of the film.
Childhood companions, the
two are separated by their
differing social classes.
Eisenheim is a cabinet
maker's son, Sophie an aris-
tocrat. -. .
The progress Ifth firhm is
leisurely, by today's video
game attention span stan-
dards. Director Burger, who
also adapted the screenplay
from Steven Millhauser's
short story, takes his time let-
ting the story play out. He
frequently resorts to two- or
three-person scenes, empha-


sizing close-up shots and in-
timate conversations.
'He chose his principal ac-
tors well for this. Edward
Norton, who plays
Eisenheim, and Giamatti,
who has earned critical ac-
claim for his recent film
work, get maximum effect
with the smallest turns of the
head or eye movements.
Their scenes have a cat-
and-mouse quality, aimiable
at first, then more direct as
the stakes are raised. What
begins as an inquiry by a
jealous fiance morphs into a
homicide investigation, with
potentially shattering impli-
cations for the Empire.
Rufus Sewell glowers
handsomely as the sadistic
Leopold, a fictional character
that appears to have been
loosely based on the real
Crown Prince Rudolf, Franz
Josef's heir at about the
same period in history.
Sewell's movements are
abrupt, dashing in a dis-
jointed sort of way, giving the
overall effect of a danger-
ously spoiled child grown to
sinister adulthood.
As Sophie, Jessica Biel
has the looks and sexiness to
make her the object of two
men's passion, and takes her
character from passive to ac-
tive while staying within the
conventions of the period.
Her disgust for Leopold leads
her to a life-changing deci-
sion, which forms the core of
the mystery.
The tone of the film is
muted, with emphasis on
candle and gaslight, and the
somber browns and tweeds of
the conservative Viennese
middle and lower classes.
The occasional bright color is
arresting, and the gowns and
uniforms of the nobility
stand out even more sharply
against this background.
To tell more would spoil
the story. Watch, and listen,
closely, and you may figure it
out before the end. I didn't,
but aside from wanting to
know the secrets of
Eisenheim's magic tricks,
who would want to?

Port St. Joe & The Discovered Coast


By CHUCK HINSON
It is hard to believe that there is still
an area in the state of Florda that has
never lost its charm. People still take
it a little bit easier, the traffic is not
at a snarl and the local hangouts are
still just that.
Due east down Hwy. 98, about 30
miles east of Panama City, lies the
quaint communitity of Port St. Joe.
With its sister city, Mexico Beach, just
over the bridge, the two complement
each other and lend a hand whenever
needed.
This former fishing village thrived
on the railroad, the papermill and
scallop fishing. This past Aug. 26 and
27 the community celebrated 10 years
of the scallop harvest at the annual
Scallop Festival.
History runs deep throughout the
area. The state of Florida even owes
its statehood to the port city.
The year 1838 was important to the
state of Florida. On Feb. 2 of that year,
the Territorial Council, seated in Tal-
lahassee, selected St. Joseph over
other larger and older cities, to be the
site of the drafting of the state con-
stitution. It would not be until 1845
that Floridawas brought in to the
union, and the Florida Constitution
became law.
During the debates among del-
egates and residents of Florida, the
city of St. Joseph continued to thrive.
Hotels, banks, schools, homes, busi-
nesses and trade were exploding in
the port town. For the residents, life
could not have been better.
That ended in 1841, when a plague
ship entered the ports of St. Joe Bay
and a prospering community died! For
more than 80 years, St. Joseph slum-
bered and became the home for a few
surviving fishermen. It looked as if
the days of the progression had fallen
into nights of depression.
But then a move byAlfred I. du Pont
changed the face of the small commu-
nity forever. He acquired the vast
amount of timber and woods at the
north of St. Joseph, and thus the St.
Joe Paper Mill began. The mill was
founded in 1936, the year after du
Pont's death, but not before he real-
ized his dream for the revitalization
of the community.
It was located on St. Joseph Bay
on the Gulf of Mexico, where ocean-
going vessels had a clear shot to travel
into the port, city. The initial output
for the day was 300 tons of Kraft pa-
per, giving employment to more than
750 men, a number greater than that
of the city's population in 1938.
Numerous companies such as Allied
Chemical, Glidden Chemical and Ari-
zona Chemical shot up around the
papermill plant. An 18 1/2-mile fresh-
water canal was dredged by the St.
Joe Paper Company to the Chipola
River to serve the needs of the paper
company and the newly-named city
of Port St. Joe.
Today the look of the city of Port St.
Joe has changed dramatically. Only
one or two plants still dot the land-
scape as you enter the community
over the bridge that divides St. Joe
Beach and Port St. Joe.
Gone are the big plants that once
produced the daily 300 tons of Kraft
paper. They now sit peacefully empty,
awaiting development.
Speaking of development,
Windmark, the same community de-
velopers as Watercolors and
Watersound here in Walton County,
have begun massive developments,
road and bridge construction, commu-
nity developments, town centers and
large-scale plans for the city and sur-
rounding areas. They have given the
area a face lift, while still trying to
preserve the past.
But it is not all about development
and construction in the Port St. Joe/
Mexico Beach area. The look and feel
of the beachfront community is hold-
ing its own.
For several miles, there is a stretch
of beachfront that is very different
than in Walton County. There are no
structures to block the view.
In Bay and Gulf county, the govern-
ment owns several miles of beachfront
property. What this means for locals
and tourists are numerous walk-overs
to the beaches and no homes or busi-
nesses blocking the view.
Throughout Port St. Joe, history
can be seen and discovered. From the
Constitution Convention State Mu-
seum to the old cemeteries, history
runs deep throughout the area.
But it is not only history, but the
natural aspects that the "Forgotten
Coast" offers, that draws tourists to


the area.
Referred to by many as being the
part of Florida that time let go, Port
St. Joe is one of the best seafood
restaraunt destination in the pan-
handle.
A list of favorites would have to in-
clude the Sunset Grill and Killer Sea-
food. Both serve incredible gulf deli-
cacies and both have extensive menus
to satisfy any seafood lover's taste.
Sunset Grill is the type of place that
caters to those who like the contem-
porary laid-back feel of having a sea-


food entree while watching the sun
set over the bay. It is a restaurant
that attracts both crowds for dinner
and those who just would like that
Bud by the bay.
Killer Seafood is another spot that
doesn't feel the need for topical deco-
rations. The food and the owners are
way too cool for that. Both hailing
from California, they made the
Mexico Beach/Port St. Joe area their
new home.
With their own brand of marinat-
ing sauce and a shrimp and fish bas-
ket to kill for, the little local wonder
is truly one place not to be missed.
Another great place to stop in for
a quick bite to eat is Sisters on Reid
Avenue in downtown Port St. Joe. If
you want a quick buffet-style lunch
or a catered reception, the two sis-
ters can take care of you.
Our last eatery to stop by is
Amanda's Bistro in Mexico Beach.
Equipped with just a few tables and
chairs, the restaurant serves a deli-
cious dish of scallops over mashed
potatoes, and the best mango tea in
the South.
The little eating spot has got a lot
of people talking from all over the
areai
Port St. Joe thrived on and still re-
lies somewhat on the scallop and
other fishing in the waters that sur-
round the city. Any day, one can look
across the bay and see boats pulling
in nets, or people wading waist-high
in the water, feeling for scallop beds.
The numerous parks and commu-
nity boat ramps that are provided,
make for a quick and easily acces-
sible way to hit the waters, no mat-
ter what type of water sports inter-
est you.
The city of Port St. Joe and the
surrounding communities such as
Cape San Blas, Indian Pass, Mexico
Beach and further west with
Appalachicola, offer a unique and
exciting variety of vacation activi-
ties. The area welcomes all travel-
ers and visitors with open arms.
Even though development has
come, and the rest of the nation is
discovering the hidden treasures of
the Forgotten Coast, it is nice to
know that there is still a place that
time has let go, that still resembles
what Florida use to be!


(Below) THE NEW PORT ST JOE
Marina sits on the bay and is the
crown jewel of the Village at Marina
Cove. Thousands flock to the marina
to boat, fish, snorkel, dive and enjoy
a variety of watersports.

Pandemic Influenza;
Individual and Family Planning

Article 4 in a series of 7

* In articles that have appeared in the past on.pandemic flu or the bird flu the most important things
to consider has been to stay informed, develop an action plan and be prepared.

* Personal preparedness for an individual or family-begins with knowing what and where the bird
flu is and how are people being affected. At this time there is still no human to human transmis-
sion of the disease, it is occurring in relatively small numbers in humans in underdeveloped coun-
tries. Should the bird flu develop into a pandemic there are issues related to social, school, care-
givers and transportation that may arise.

Social disruption will likely occur. Services such as hospitals, banks, restaurants, stores and gov-
* ernment offices will probably have issues due to illness or supplies that may negatively impact
how services can be provided. Prevention such as avoiding crowds would likely be encouraged
I and church services and similar activities may need to be offered via internet, television or radio.

Getting to work may become an issue; personal or family illness may cause increased absentee-
ism. Working in crowded situations should be discouraged. If your work can be done from
home, check with your employer. Extended illness and/or absenteeism may have a negative
impact on personal finances. Public transportation availability may change and again being in
crowded situations is discouraged. Some of these issues may be more problematic than others but
the negative impact can be lessened with planning.

* Planning is the core of good preparation.
Stock a supply of water and easy to prepare/eat food. Store foods that are non-perishable and
don't require refrigeration.
* Keep supplements such as Gatorade or pedialyte on hand.
Stay healthy; avoid crowds, wash hands thoroughly and often.
Cover your nose and mouth when you sneeze or cough. Dispose of used tissues in a waste
basket.
Eat a balanced diet: A variety of foods with plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables including
whole grains is a great start.
Drink.plenty of water.
Exercise regularly and get adequate rest.
Get a flu shot.
* Check the medicine cabinet for fever and pain reducers and a back-up supply of routine
medications.

Additional information is available through the Centers for Disease Control at 1(800) 232-4636 or
Scdcinfo@cdc.gov. The Walton County Health Department @892-8015 is a great local resource as
well.

WALTON COUNTY THIS MONTH

Parks and Recreation working hard for you

With a staff of only 15 people the Walton County Parks and Recreation Department stays busy
maintaining over 20 parks year-around. During the summer months they mow over 64 facilities
weekly. Parks and Recreation Manager Brad Alford is proud of the work this group of dedi-
cated county employees is doing. They have build over five new athletic fields from the ground
up over the past year. Together with the county's Construction Management Department, they
are now working on three baseball fields and a concession stand in Paxton; three new ball
fields at Helen McCall Park, new fencing and irrigation at Lakewood and are preparing to start
construction of basketball courts and a playground at the Eucheeanna Community Center.
The Wee Care Park has new playground equipment, swings and batting cages. Two new foot
ball fields have been irrigated and are ready for construction. Future plans include the addi-
tion of tennis courts.


-. I 'l

Yf


Shown above is the baseball diamond under construction at the Paxton ball
field complex Three fields have been built, one each for baseball, softball
and t-ball The concession stand has announcing booths upstairs that front
on each of the fields A similar design is planned for the Helen McCall facil-
ity in the upcoming renovation of that complex.


Athletic Coordinator Todd Murphy is proud to announce there are over
500 boys and girls signed up for soccer this season. Every year the in-
terest in soccer has increased and the number of kids enrolled grows.


A long-time Walton County landmark for travelers headed south on U.S. 331, the bay fill wayside park is maintained by our Parks and Recreation Department. This fa-
cility has recently received a fresh coat of paint. Installation of new infrastructure along the right of way has hampered use of the park during this summer, but as that
work is completed, the park will be ready to use by folks who want to enjoy fishing and swimming in Choctawhatchee Bay.

Anchor Club officers and sponsor,
along with Dan Owens, library direc-
tor, gathered at the Walton County

over the state of Florida. The projects
were then given to each of the district
officers to bring home and donate to a
location of their choice. Kathleen Foy,

this painting hanging in such a distin-
guished place to be viewed by the pub-
lic. They would like to welcome all Wal-
ton County and neighboring residents

WMS Summer Reading students reap the rewards


By BRUCE COLLIER
A group of Walton Middle
School (WMS) students en-
joyed the rewards of reading
success last Tuesday, cel-
ebrating their completion of
the WMS Summer Reading
Program.
The students, from sixth,
seventh, and eighth grades,
had a pizza lunch at Pizza
Hut, followed by trips to the
Walton DeFuniak Library
and the Book Store, which
provided gift certificates to-
ward books for each.
The students were mem-
bers of the Summer RT-.diili
Program, sponsored by \WM
"to foster a love of reading, to
promote independent read-
ing," and to improve stude


reading skills.
Under the program, stu-
dents agreed to read at least
three books over the summer
break, and received points for
reading beyond the minimum
number. The books were se-
lected from a list of recom-
mended titles, and from
books of the students' own
choosing.
Students reading ten or
more books qualified for the
"Hall of Fame."
Dr. Dale Yount, head of the
WMS Reading Program, pro-
vided a list of 33 named stu-
dents who had participated.
Of that list, 12 names were
entered in the Hall of Fame.
- Topping the Hall of Fame
list were eighth-grade lit-


eracy champ Britney Jean
Newhouse, with 39 titles to
her credit, and the sixth-
grade's Katelynn Marie
Newhouse, who read 15
books.


Other Hall of Famers were
sixth-graders Ashlynn Coo-
per, Caroline Gillis, Laura
Gillis, Mary Beth Majors, and
Madison Simmons, seventh-
graders Sarah L. Bailey,


Devero Bogart, and Stephen
Jones, and eighth-graders
Tiffany Messer and Tray Vir-
gin.
Others successfully com-
pleting the program were


of success
sixth-graders Haley Biddle,
Caitlyn Cassidy, John
Clenney, Blake Davis, Brady
Davis, Shannon Goodchild,

Three Things
By Dr. Charles Satterwhite


What is required for God's blessings to rest on a nation,
a region or a city? We look around the world and see spots
that are plagued with famine generation after generation.
We see abundance and we see want. We see peace among
some people and we see genocide among others.
What we really see is sin and the results of sin. I don't
know of a nation or place on earth that is exempt either -
lest we feel far superior to that "other" nation. But it is not
God's desire or heart to punish, judge and curse the na-
tions of the world. He wants to bless because that's the
kind of God he really is.
When Israel thought they were doing great because they
were offering plenty of burnt offerings, God called them
up short. "Does the Lord take delight in thousands of rams,
in ten thousand rivers of oil?" (Micah 6:7) Actually, they
were missing the things God was really looking for.
"He has told you, 0 man, what is good; and what does
the Lord require of you but to do justice, to love kindness,
and to walk humbly with your God?" (Micah 6:8) What a
change in our society if each nation simply practiced those
three things. Imagine such a place. Imagine what would
happen if injustice was removed. Imagine the effect on hu-
man relations if we loved kindness. What if we gave up
our arrogance and self-sufficiency and walked humbly with
our God?
Many nations want to keep God out of their affairs; they
only want a secular society. That's fine but what about the
end result? I would rather live with the three things God
requires and see that result

Local football history made


Friday night in Walton County


By PATRICK CASEY
A pair of missed extra
points came back to haunt
the Walton Braves as
the Freeport Bulldogs cap-
tured their first ever regular
season football victory over
their county rivals 13-12.
Freeport entered the con-
test 0-7 against Walton in
the 30-year history of the
football program, but would
not be denied on a night that
featured two teams with
contrasting styles.
Freeport opened the game
with a 7-play, 62-yard drive
that was capped offby senior
quarterback Lloyd Ander-
son's 4-yard run to give
Freeport a 7-0 lead.


Walton responded on
their initial possession as
the Braves answered with a
36-yard run from senior run-
ning back Devin Gibson to
cut the deficit to 7-
6. Walton's Israel Baza
clanged the extra point off
the right upright, however,
to leave the Bulldogs with a
one-point advantage.
After Walton gambled on
a fourth down play at their
own 45 and threw
an incomplete'pass, Freeport
mounted a scoring drive to
the Walton 2-yard line, only
to see the Walton defense
stiffen and force a 4th-and-
goal situation.
Freeport coach Jim An-
derson elected to try a


SPENCER MARTIN kicked a pair of field goals, but his
extra point was the difference in Freeport's 13-12 win over
Walton.


field goal and Spencer Mar-
tin lined a 19-yard attempt
thru the goal posts for a 10-
6 lead.
After a short Walton
punt, Freeport's Martin hit
a 31-yard field goal
to increase the halftime lead
to 13-6.
Freeport took their
opening possession of the
second half and moved down
the field while eating up
valuable chunks of clock
time, only to have
Josh Thomas lose the handle
on the football at the Walton
12-yard line where
Isaac Jackson promptly fell
on it to stop the drive.
Walton's lone big play of
the half occurred on third
down as Walton quarterback'
Tarrell Bramlet hit
Larel Jackson with a short
pass that he turned into an
83-yard touchdown recep-
tion to cut the margin to 13-
12. Walton once again failed
to convert the extra point,
leaving Freeport with a one-
point lead midway thru the
third quarter.
Freeport had excellent
field position on the night as
the Bulldogs were able
to move the ball against
Walton's defense while chew-
ing up time of possession.
When Freeport's drives
stalled, Lloyd Anderson did


an excellent job of pin-
ning Walton with well placed
punts.
Bramlet, who was hobbled
on a tackle early in the fourth
quarter, had a deflected pass
picked off at the Freeport 45-
'yard line to stop a Walton
drive, but got one last oppor-
tunity when Walton forced
a Freeport punt with just
over two minutes to play.
Walton started at their
own 34-yard line .and
marched into Freeport terri-
tory as Bramlet hit Jamar
Johnson on a fourth down
play that reached the
Freeport 31-yard line.
Walton could go no
further, however. Freeport
sacked Bramlet on third
down with less than a minute
to play, then watched the
young sophomore mistakenly
spike the football to stop
the clock on fourth down,
wrapping up the Bulldogs
first win over Walton in
the program's history.
Lloyd Anderson led
Freeport with 82 rushing
yards .while making no
critical errors in leading
Freeport to the win.
Walton(1-1) will travel
to Tallahassee Chiles(2-0) on
Friday, September 8 while
Freeport(2-0) will be on the
road at Northview(2-0) in a
pair of non-district tilts.

The Wewahitchka Gators

went on to a 42-12 non-dis-
trict victory over the South


Walton Seahawks.
*. Ryan Ranie rushed for
166 yards and a touchdown
and Dee Baker returned a
punt 55 yards for a score as

Walton and Freeport's vol-
leyball teams had another
strong week of competition
last week as both.squads won
all their matches during the
week before Labor Day.
Freeport captured wins
over Chipley, South Walton
and Cottondale to improve to
7-2 overall. Walton defeated
Laurel Hill and Northview to
improve to 6-2. South Walton,
however, continues to
struggle as the Seahawks
dropped both of their
matches to Freeport and
Pensacola Catholic to fall to
2-8.
Freeport swept South Wal-
ton (25-17,25-23,26-24) and
Cottondale (25-10,25-23,25-
15) in three games' while
Chipley (13-25,25-16,25-
16,25-19) fell in four frames
after winning the first game.
The Bulldogs have used their
eight-woman roster to suc-
cess so far this season under
coach Tina Knight. The Bull-
dogs have a district match on
Thursday, September 7,
against Pensacola Christian
at 5:30 p.m. in their first dis-
trict road match of the sea-
son.
Walton improved to 2-0 in
district competition after
sweeping Northview(25-
11,25-18,25-23) at home. The
Braves also picked up a non-
district win over Laurel Hill
(25-22,25-21,18-25,25-15) in
four games to continue a solid
start to the 2006 season.
Coach Marla Harrell's squad
has another week before
their first run-in with
Pensacola Catholic, the cur-
rent district front-runner.
South Walton faced
Pensacola Catholic last week


on the road with the Crusad-
ers getting a three-game win.
Catholic swept the contest
(25-10,25-20,25-12) to drop
the struggling Seahawks to
2-8 on the year. South Wal-


ton also fell to Freeport in a
match earlier in the week.
The Seahawks have played
hard, but have struggled to
close out games and build
leads early in the season.


FREEPORT'S LORA KING returns a shot against South
Walton during the Bulldogs three-game sweep.

Notes
By PATRICK CASEY
The Pensacola Junior Col-
lege volleyball team posted a
3-1 record in the eight-team
Florida Community College
volleyball tournament in
Jacksonville over the week-
end. PJC claimed a third
place finish as they fell to
the host team before bounc-
ing back to capture third
place with a five game win
over Palm Beach Community
College.
The Walton junior varsity
football team lost to Panama
City Bozeman 6-0 to fall to 0-
2 on the season while the
Freeport junior varsity team
lost to Graceville in their
opener in a game shortened
due to lightning.
Keith Brown, a junior
from Pensacola, hauled in six
passes for 132 yards and one
touchdown in Alabama's sea-
son opening win over Hawaii.
Brown has recorded back-to-
back 100-yard games for the
Crimson Tide, including a
career-high 142-yard effort in
the 2006 AT&T Cotton Bowl
win over Texas Tech. Brown
also eclipsed the 1,000- yard
receiving mark in his Ala-
bama career. In 22 games, he
has 57 receptions for 1,069
yards and six touchdowns.
Senior slotback Eddie
Martin carried the U.S. flag
and led the Navy Midship-
men onto the field before
the football game with East
Carolina on Saturday. Mar-
tin, who is from Cantonment,
was diagnosed with
lymphoma during the early
stages of fall practice. The
rest of the players are wear-
ing a #32 sticker on the backs
of their helmets for Martin,
who has attended a few prac-
tices since he started treat-
ment. Navy won the contest
28-23.

Panel decision



forestalls family



compound


By Dotty Nist
A. "family compound" on a
0.574-acre lot on Western
Lake will not be a possibility,
barring a successful appeal
of a an Aug. 31 decision of the
Walton County Zoning
Board ofAdjustments (ZBA).
The panel voted 5-0 to let
stand a decision by Pat
Blackshear, Walton County
planning director, denying
property owner Rich McGill
permission to build three
homes on the residential lot
at the northeast corner of
Lydia Avenue and Banfill
Street in Grayton Beach.
In this appeal by McGill
of Blackshear's decision, the
final ZBA vote came after
over 11 hours of testimony in
three separate sessions.
McGill testified that his
plans for the property, which
he purchased for about $1.3
million in Oct. 2004, are to
build three homes on it, one
for himself and one foi each
of his two adult daughters.
There is one small existing
home on the parcel, which is
considered a "lot of record;"
as such, the Walton County
Comprehensive Plan allows
"at least one (1) single-family
dwelling unit" to occupy the
property.
McGill and his attorney
Gary Shipman argued that
he was entitled tb build three
homes on the parcel because
a previous county planning
director had told him he
could do so.
Policy L-1.1.10 of the
Walton County
Comprehensive Plan
provides an exception to
density requirements with
regard to single-family lots
in instances where a lot


owner desires to develop
and/or subdivide their
property "for the use of an
immediate family member."
At the first ZBA hearing
on the matter in May 2006,
Mike Lane, county planning
director until mid-February
2005, said that he arid other
planning staff members had
decided after discussing the
matter that McGill would
qualify for the family lot
exception.
Lane said that it had been
his interpretation and
decision that McGill's
situation would meet the
conditions of the exception,
and that the exception would
"trump" other code
restrictions on the lot,
including those pertaining to
flood zones and enhanced
setback requirements for
lots adjacent to dune lakes.
He did not put the decision
in writing, according to his
testimony.
At the second ZBA
hearing on the matter, Renee
Bradley, county planner,
testified that Lane had told
her he was allowing McGill
to use the family lot
exception and split the lot,
and directed her to have him
sign affidavits in connection
with the exemption, which
she did. Bradley said she
used a septic tank permit
form for the exemption
application, which was the
only form she had.
"There has never been a
building) permit issued,"
she said.
Kelly Finney served as
planning director for a brief
period between Lane's Feb.
2005 departure and Pat
Blackshear's arrival in May


2005. Bradley testified that
upon seeing the plans,
Finney told her to call McGill
and say that only one home
plus 800-square-foot
accessory building (guest
house) would be allowed on
the property.
After coming aboard as
planning director,
Blackshear also gave the
family compound plans a
'thumbs down."
Regarding the family-lot
exemption, Blackshear said,
"It was never intended to be
used in an urban area like
coastal south Walton
County" but in rural or farm
areas.
Blackshear's opinion was
that McGill was entitled to
one single-family dwelling
plus guest house but that he
would have to meet all code
requirements, and that
density restrictions on the
property would rule out
additional structures.
Attorney Shipman
contended that the case was.
"about estoppel." Estoppel is
defined as "a bar to alleging
or denying a fact because of
one's (in this case, the
county's) own previous'
actions or words to the
contrary."
He argued that there was
"no question" that Mike
Lane had authorized the
family lot exception for
McGill's property and that
McGill had relied on that
authorization to purchase
the property and spend over
$20,000 in architectural fees.
He categorized Finney's
and Blackshear's later
denial of the family-lot

A HOWLING GOOD TIME was had by all at the opening of the Bark Park in south
Walton County. Dogs and their best friends attended.




It's a dog's life at



Bark Park


By Leah Stratmann
Tails were wagging
feverishly and tongues were
literally hanging out at the
opening last week of Walton
County's Bark Park on J.D.
Miller Road. There were
more canines than humans
at the official ribbon cutting
and the extreme heat seemed
of no concern to either the
dog or the human population.

The park sits on land
donated by Walton County.
The area was fenced using
private donations into two
areas -'one for large dogs
and another for small dogs.
The two areas allow owners
to take dogs off leashes and


run around with other dogs.
Dogs attending the opening
displayed a great deal of
curiosity about the variety of
dogs, but acted in good
citizenship. There was no
evidence of hostility and only
yips of joy were heard.
Pet lovers expressed
appreciation for a place to
take pets and allowing them
to run free. With restrictions
in county ordinances .and
such, there are few public
places where animals can
run free and be safe.
Socially acclimated pets
are the canine population
most likely to enjoy the park.
Aggressive animals will be
required to wear a muzzle


and owners are responsible
for the behavior of their'
animals.
The rules of the park are
pdsted prominently,
encouraging people to clean
up dog waste, bring a bowl for
hydrating pets and to
encourage others to keep the
park clean. Unattended pets
will be dealt with by animal
control. The park is free and
open to all from dawn to
dusk, however Tuesdays are
reserved for Bark Park
members. An annual
membership is $20.

Options, Alternatives and Ideas


Alternates to


U.S. 98 planned


By Dotty Nist
Next week, residents can
register their opinion on
updated proposals for two
new east-west access routes
that would run north of U.S.
98 in south Walton County.
The public is invited to a
hearing on the access roads
set for 6 p.m. on Sept. 14 at
the Coastal Branch Library.
The meeting will be
conducted by county
engineering consulting firm
PBS&J.
Resulting from Walton
County's Mack Bayou
master study, which was
completed in early 2004, t he
access roads are proposed for
construction about 20 years
from now, but, if they get,
final approval, right-of-wa'y
acquisition would come
sooner.
One of the roads would
run from Mack Bayou Road
to U.S. 331 and the other
from U.S. 331 to CR-395.
Together, their length would
total about 12 miles.
The stated purpose of the


road proposal is to manage
increased traffic created by
growth in the county.
In June 2005, PBS&J held
a public information meeting
on the access roads as
proposed at that time. As
directed, by the Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners, a high-
speed four-lane suburban
road design was presented.
Some citizen concerns were
expressed regarding the
high speed limits that were
envisioned. There were other
concerns about the amount
of right-of-way needed for
this design. %
'The current design
provides for the use of high-
speed four-lane divided
suburban, high-sp-eed two-
lane divided suburban, and
low-speed urban four-lane
sections on different part of
the roadways. The urban
sections would incorporate
curbing and sidewalks but
could be narrower, reducing
right-of-way needs.
Impacts on state forest


land, which would be
traversed by some sections of
the proposed roadways, were
a concern for some
participants at the previous
hearing on the access roads.
Relocation of some
businesses and residences
may also be necessary for the
roads to be constructed.
Conceptual design plans
for the access roads, along
with the State Environ-
mental Impact Report, are
available for viewing from 8
a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday
thro ugh Friday at the South
\Valtorn Courthouwe Annex
and \% ill remain there until
Sept. 14.
In addition to oral
statements, citizens may
submit written statements
and/or exhibits within 10
days after the hearing date
to be considered as part of
the hearing. These should be
directed to the project
manager, Rosemary Woods,
PBS&J, 1901 Common-
wealth Lane, Tallahassee,
FL 32303, (850) 575-1800.


WALTON COUNTY CONSULTING ENGINEER Cliff Knauer outlines future work for
Scenic Gulf Drive.



New look for



Scenic Gulf Drive1


By Jeffrey Powell
* Scenic Gulf Drive
residents met on Aug. 31
with Dist. 5 Walton County
Commissioner Cindy
Meadows and County
Administrator Ronnie Bell to
discuss current and future
improvements on the south
Walton roadway.
Walton County's


consulting engineer Cliff
Knauer of Preble-Rish, Inc.
outlined future work in a
presentation to the audience
of concerned citizens.
The $4.7 million project is
to be completed in three
phases. Phase one is nearing
completion with phase two to
begin as soon as possible.
Of concern to many


property owners with future
work, which has included
resurfacing, is the relocation
of the current pedestrian;
bicycle path. The new path
will be eight feet wide and
six feet south of the north
county right of way. This
relocation places the path

Election dispute in Sandestin Owners Association


By LEAH STRATMANN
A number of Sandestin
homeowners are up in arms
about what they consider to
be the heavy-handed tactics
of the Sandestin Owners As-.
sociation (SOA) when mem-
bers of the nominating com-
mittee for the board of direc-
tors arbitrarily removed the
names of two people who
wished to run for seats on the
nine-member board of direc-
tors.
What is at issue is goes far
deeper than just the election,
said Hollis Risley, one of the
people who compose the
President's Council (PC)
which was formed in Janu-
ary 2005 to force the SOA to
deal with issues they were
not addressing.

Florida Statue 720, states,
"Elections of directors must
be conducted in accordance
with the procedures set forth
in the governing documents
of the association. All mem-
bers of the association shall
be eligible to serve on the
board of directors, and a
member may nominate him-
self or herself as a candidate
for the board at a meeting
where the election is to be
held. Except as otherwise
provided in the governing
documents, boards of direc-
tors must be elected by a plu-
rality of the votes cast by eli-
gible voters." This statute
has been ignored by the SOA.
"The attorney for the SOA
believes the SOA predates
Florida Statute 720 which is
a law. They believe their cur-*
rent bylaws trump the stat-
ute," Risley said. "This is a
fundamental disagreement
to reject -members in good
standing." The SOA has fur-
ther advised the voting
homeowners that no write-in
candidates will be allowed
and if voters do write in can-
didates, the ballots will be
disqualified. Three individu-
als, one a board member and
two appointees, make up the
Wfromn' atifg ...c' imffitt e e
whose recommendations to
reject the two candidates
were accepted by the SOA
Board.
Risley said more than 100
disgruntled owners attended
the Aug. 17 meeting of
homeowners asking, "Under
what authority are they per-
mitted to do this?" The SOA
Board's answer was that the
individuals serve in an ex-
ecutive capacity with the
Presidents' Council, which is
deemed by them to be a par-
allel homeowners associa-
tion, and therefore in conflict
with the SOA. So far there
have been no other answers.


The election to fill two vacant
spots on the SOA will take
place on Oct. 18. Risley noted
that of the nine members cur-
rently serving on the board,
only two voted to oppose the
nominating committee tac-
tics.
Of the two rejected candi-
dates, Jack McGill formerly
served on the SOA as a board
member. He and Andy
Salmon now serve on two
important committees of the
association, finance and de-
velopment and beach issues,
Risley noted.
Beyond the election, the PC
believes there are a number
of long-term issues that lie
ahead and are wary of the
current SOA's ability or will-
ingness to address those is-
sues or even acknowledge
they exist. The primary is-
sues concern the beach, beach
accesses, beach parking and
the impact of growth on
Sandestin's infrastructure.
Risley said traffic has become
a major problem on the resort
due to congestion and park-
ing limitations.
"There has been unfettered
development by Intrawest.
Right now there are approxi-
mately 600 residential units
under construction and
Intrawest plans for 1200
more. None of Intrawest's
additional development pro-
posals thus far will be in con-
formance with Walton
County's Comprehensive
Plan. Sandestin's residents
"have great concern about
what they will be left to deal
with when the resort is built
out," he said.
Risley said there are cur-
rently about 4,500 residential
dwelling units, but only be-
tween 600 and 700 residents
live in Sandestin full time.
"People who only come here
for three to four weeks of the
year do not want to become
involved in the politics of the
place and they expect us to
look after their best inter-
ests."
' Of deeper concern to many
is a quality of life issue that
has arisen with the develop-
ment of the Village of
Baytowne Wharf. In a speech
Risley gave to the
homeowners at the August
meeting, he said he has been
dealing with Village issues
for about a year and what
started out as a lone voice
complaining of nightly distur-
bances of screaming patrons
and reckless driving has be-
come much more.
"My concerns are nightlife
rowdiness and misbehavior
as a product of excessive al-
cohol consumption. The Vil-
lage transforms from a fam-


ily friendly atmosphere to
Bourbon Street at 11 p.m.
The character of the Village
after hours has changed ap-
preciably over the past three
years. It is not clear what
entity is responsible for Vil-
lage security. Some say it is
the Village Homeowners As-
sociation, (HOA) others say it
is SOA Security. I was re-
cently told that the SOA co-
ordinates night time security,
but that the HOA has over-
all responsibility and ac-
countability."
Reports -on issues in the
Village are prepared daily,
but attempts by Risley to get
copies of those reports have
been denied. "I was told it
could be harmful for the com-
munity management should
that information be misinter-
preted. Additionally, some
information may be intended
for the use of Baytowne
Wharf Neighborhood Asso-
ciation Management and
should not be presented to
the entire SOA membership,"
Risley said.
"It seems to me that this
response gives the appear-
ance that there is something
to hide or that if bad things
happen they should not be
discussed openly, especially
with the owners. I suggest
that if there is sensitive in-
formation intended only for
Baytowne Wharf Neighbor-
hood Association, then put it
in a separate report."
Risley said just during this
year there have been mul-
tiple motor vehicle accidents
in the Baytowne Wharf area.
Risley feels most all of the
accidents are alcohol fueled.
"One individual fell from a
golf cart and died, and this
was not even reported in the
local media," Risley noted.
Of the 1,000 units compris-
ing the Village of Baytowne
Wharf's residential area,
fewer than 20 are lived in full
time Risley said.
"Since March of this year, I
have been to. the Village more
than 70 times after midnight
to see what goes on: I have
never seen an owner that I
knew on any of those occa-
sions and most of the cars in
the garage had day visitor
passes. The garage is an at-
mosphere for trouble and
much trouble is present, such
as speeding, minor accidents,
loitering, drinking and at-
tempted robbery. I've seen
tailgate parties in the garage
during spring break," Risley
said. Additionally, Risley
said, "Over the past four
months, local authorities
have confiscated more that
300 false ID's from underage
patrons.
"Fights in bars, on the Vil-
lage streets, the garage and
even in the trams have oc-
curred and continue to occur
regularly. Some result in ar-
rests and injury requiring
medical treatment. It is not
uncommon to see individuals
taken out of the Village in
handcuffs. These events put


deputies and security person-
nel at risk. Drunkenness, dis-
orderly conduct and DUI are
common on most nights. Five,
soon to be six, nightclubs, dic-
tate the character of the Vil-
lage after 11 p.m. This state
of affairs is fundamentally
wrong," he said.
The PC and other
Sandestin homeowners feel a
number of changes needs to
be addressed concerning the
Village, including defining
who is responsible for secu-
rity there, and defining the
desired ambiance for the
area. They also suggest clos-
ing the bars and nightclubs
at midnight, as well as clos-
ing outside access at 10 p.m.
to eliminate people arriving
on the property already in-
toxicated.
"Why do we permit our


neighborhood to become a
haven for over-indulgers?
This is a management and
leadership issue that re-
quires more management
and leadership involvement,"
said Risley.
Earlier this month,
Intrawest agreed to a take-
over bid by Fortress Invest-
ment Group at the urging of


If ~LJ4'j


major shareholder Pirate
Capital LLC. All of Intrawest
holdings, including
Sandestin, were sold for $2.8
billion dollars.
"I don't believe Intrawest
should be very proud of the
environment they have cre-
ated late night at the Village
of Baytowne Wharf," Risley
concluded.

Classic guitar, Nutcracker, Messiah tickets now available


WALTON COUNTY author and decorated US. Army vet-
eran H.D. Guthre has scored an apparent instant hit with
his first novel, judging from glowing online reviews and a
five-star rating by the Military Writers Society of America.
His book is entitled: "To Whom it May Concern."
Guthre, an area resident since 1976, drew upon extensive
research along with his personal experience as a "dust-off
niedic" in Vietnam, to produce a compelling and action-filled
memoir It was the daily mission of Guthre and his fellow
medics to exit helicopters and retrieve wounded soldiers at
great risk to their own lives. The book has particular rel-
evance to the military conflict in which the United States is
currently engaged, revealing that a number of the same "play-
ers are involved, including the Halliburton company, known
as Brown and Root in the Vietnam era.
Serving the US. Army in Berlin for five years prior to his
Vietnam tour, Guthre has also worked extensively in civilian
law enforcement, most recently as a dispatcher for the Wal-
ton County Sheriffs Office from 2001-2003. Now retired on
100 percent disability due to Agent Orange exposure, Guthre
resides with his wife Julia in Santa Rosa Beach. He is now
working on a second book.
"To Whom it May Concern" is available in bookstores and
online. Additional information is available by logging on to

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

PUBLIC NOTICE
Walton County, Florida, is conducting a public hearing for the New Access Road West and New Access Road East
PD&E Study, FPID 413039-1-54-01. The public hearing will be held Thursday, September 14th, 2006 at the Walton
County Coastal Branch Library, 336 Greenway Trail, Santa Rosa Beach, Florida. This hearing is being conducted to
provide an opportunity for interested persons to express their views concerning the location; conceptual design; and
social, economic and environmental effects of this project.
The proposed project would provide two new roads located north of and generally parallel to US 98 (SR 30). The New
Access Road West would follow new alignment from Mack Bayou Road to US 331. The New Access Road East
would follow mostly new alignment from US 331 to CR 395. Together, the proposed new roadways cover a distance
of approximately 12 miles. The new roadways would have three typical sections: a high-speed four-lane divided
suburban typical section, a high-speed two-lane divided suburban typical section, and a low-speed urban four-lane
typical section.


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

The OWC Arts
Center is rolling out
the red carpet and
inviting all to help
them celebrate their
10th Anniversary
season of Broadway.
From Jesus Christ
Superstar to Urban
Cowboy, every musi-
cal taste can be sat-
isfied.

In 1996, the Arts Center at
OWC in Niceville, opened the
stage curtains on its first
Broadway production. Ten
years later, the curtains are
still opening on the Broad-
way series and the perfor-
mances are getting better
and better.
Over the past 10 years, the
$25 million facility has
served as a home for many
traveling Broadway shows
that have made their way to
the Florida Emerald Coast.
This year, the productions hit
a new level.
This season once again of-
fers a diverse line-up of en-
tertainment that will feature
some of the top-slated Broad-
way shows including Jesus
Christ Superstar, Cirque
Dreams: Jungle Fantasy,
Hairspray, Don Giovanni,
and Urban Cowboy. The se-
ries performers are even
more impressive with Broad-
way icons such as Ben Vereen
and Jim Seals, just to name
a few.
The following is a listing of
the Broadway and Artists
series:

10/13 Dorothy and the
Dinosaur's Dance Party
10/27 Seals and Seals in
concert
November
*11/8 Jesus Christ Super-
star: The first collaboration of
writer/composers Tim Rice
and Andrew Lloyd Webber.
When it hit Broadway in
1971, it changed the face of
musical theater forever.
With numerous familiar
hits all throughout the mu-
sical, it depicts the last seven
days of Jesus Christ.
* 11/ 17-19 Nutcracker, pre-
sented by the NWF Ballet.
The Classical and timeless
ballet gets the holiday season
kicked into high gear.
* 11/20 & 21 Hairspray: The
eight-timeTony Award-win-
ning musical-comedy phe-
nomenon about bouffant-
high hair and plenty of
giggles. It is the story of a big
girl, with a big heart who sets
out to change the world and
win over her man.
December

Musical: The 1980 hit movie,

hold name of Gilley's Bar in

the story of a cowboy who's
turning heads and looking
for love in the world's biggest
bar, comes to Broadway as a
musical.
March

Selling Your Home in Today's Market
by Christa Merrifield-Mitchell, Merrifield & Pilcher Realty
The media has been full of stories about the slow housing market -- and
although this kind of market normalization is commonplace in the real
estate industry, there is no question that in many parts of the country,
houses are currently on the market a little longer and there is more com-
petition for buyers.

Hire a Professional
If you want to sell your home fairly quickly, now is not the time to at it
alone. You want to make sure that your home gets the maximum exposure
and the best marketing strategy. When you work with a qualified real
estate,professional, your home will be listed on a MLS database that other
real estate professionals can access. In addition, you get the benefit of an
experienced, marketer and negotiator who is familiar with real estate
issues in your community.
When selecting someone to represent you, interview at least three real
estate professionals who are familiar with your area. Ask questions such
as: How will your home be marketed to reach.the greatest number of buy-
ers? What price can they get for your home? What's the average time
their listings have been on the market? They should be able to back up
their answer with a Comparative Marketing Analysis and provide the
names of two or three of their most recent sellers who you may contact for
a reference.

Price It Right
A house priced at just below market value piques the interest of real
estate professionals and buyers, while overpricing chases them away. If
your home is priced too high, interested buyers may never even tour your
listing. It is true that you can always drop the price, but the first 30 days
are the most critical. That is when interested is the highest, and it can be
difficult to recapture people's interest later on. The longer the property is
on the market, the fewer the prospects.

Get Your Home In Show-Condition
Get your home in tip-top shape before any potential buyer views it.
Remember, you only get one chance to make a first impression. Get rid of
the clutter. Touch up the paint where needed. Clean the carpet. Consider
having your home inspected, and make any recommended repairs. (If
there are any repairs you decide not to fix, inform the buyers about the
condition of your home and discount the repair cost from the selling price).

Curb Appeal
Don't overlook the outside of your property. You don't' want a buyer to rule
but your home based on the outside appearance. The lawn should be
trimmed, bushes and shrubs pruned, and leaves raked. The front of the
house needs a clean, fresh appearance. Even the mailbox needs to be
attractive and functional. (Believe it or not, a rusty, unhinged mailbox can
turn potential buyers off.) And don't forget to put away bicycles; toys and
other items that may make your property seem cluttered.

Offer Incentives
Offering incentives can be just the impetus a potential buyer needs to
select your property over others. You may want to consider offering a car-
pet or paint allowance. If the buyer knows up front that there is an allow-
ance for the worn carpet or paint, they may overlook those cosmetic flaws
in order to choose their own color. You could pay for a professional home
inspection or a home warranty -- and, depending on your market and
budget, offer to pay some of the closing costs.
Don't be discouraged if there are competing homes for sale in your neigh-
borhood. Making the right moves at the beginning of your home selling
process can give you the upper-hand you'll need in today's competitive
market.

DECISION FROM FRONT


exception as an instance of a
"change in politics" with
regard.to land use. This is a
situation where estoppel
would apply, since a previous
governmental decision was
relied on to the land owner's
detriment, he argued,
concluding that McGill would
be entitled to build the three
homes as previously agreed.'
Defending Blackshear's
decision, attorney Harry
Chiles maintained that
Lane's decision "was very
plainly" illegal and that
therefore estoppel does not
apply.
He added that even if that
were not so, that McGill
would not be eligible for
estoppel because "he didn't
come to you with clean
hands."
Chiles cast doubt on
statements by McGill and his
attorney that a family
compound was his objective.
"He's always been
intending to split these lots,"
Chiles argued.
The August 24, 2006 ZBA
meeting included testimony
by realtor Jim Skinner that
in summer 2004 McGill had
approached him, -offering
two-thirds of the property in
question, which he was under
contract to purchase, for a
price of $1.6 million.
Van Ness Butler also
testified that McGill had
questioned him about getting
the lot split at one point. He
added that later, at McGill's
request, he had provided a
quit claim deed for an
undeveloped roadway on the
property, which had been
part of his family's estate.
Butler added that, unknown
to him, his quit claim was
then altered and a page
containing his signature was
attached to a corrective
warranty deed for the middle
65 feet of the lot.
Butler said he learned the
legal description from
McGill's purchase of the
property was not recorded,
but that the above-


mentioned corrective deed
and a deed with a legal
description of the western
third of the property were
recorded, leaving off the
eastern one-third.
"I assume their objective
was to show something on
record on three different
parcels," Butler concluded.
Shipman explained the
situation as an error with the
recording of the legal
description, which had since
been corrected to include all
sections of the property.
McGill also contended
that, although he had at one
time envisioned splitting the
property, upon learning that
that was not a possibility, he
had subsequently pursued
constructing a family
compound. He testified that
although he had signed a
contract on July 14, 2004
resulting from his contact
with Skinner for two-thirds
of the property, it was
terminated within a week
once he knew a split was not
possible.
"He wants, a family
compound and that's what he
asked for," Shipman stated.
Among concerns
expressed by the ZBA
members were the possibility
of a "complete change of
character of neighborhoods"
if splitting lots on the dune
lakes takes place.
Board member Flip Spann
noted that there is nothing in
writing saying that the
family lot exception was
approved.
"The building permit was
never issued," added ZBA
Chair Joe Johnson.
A motion to overturn the
planning director's decision
on the basis of estoppel
resulted in five "nay" votes
and none in favor, resulting
in Blackshear's decision
remaining in force.

McGill has 30 days from
the date of the Aug. 31
hearing to file an appeal in
circuit court.
