City Council


approves police


dispatch center


de

i


0


By Leigh Strickland
Walton County Sheriff
Ralph Johnson is going to
help the city of DeFuniak
Springs. At Monday's meet-
ing of the DeFuniak Springs
city council, Mayor Harold
Carpenter shared a letter
from Johnson in which
he said, "I agree to continue
dispatch service for the City
of DeFuniak Springs until
March 31, 2007."
This extension of service
will give the city time
to establish its own 24-hour
dispatch service center.
DeFuniak Springs Chief of
Police Mike Adkinson pre-
sented a five-year plan for es-
tablishing such a service cen-
ter for the city. After this five-
year setup period, he said,
the city will be paying no
more than it would to the
Walton County Emergency
Operations Center (EOC),
which would otherwise
be providing the service.
The problem with the
EOC providing service,
Adkinson said, is that the
city can't pay for EOC service
and pay for setting up its
own service at the same
time.
"We're getting two things
for one here," Carpenter said.
The council unanimously
voted to follow Adkinson's
plan.
The intersection of U.S.
331 and Bruce Avenue
will have a traffic signal, ac-
cording to an email
from Dustie Moss, traffic
studies specialist for FDOT,
that Carpenter also shared.
The email from Moss said,
"At the request of Mayor Car-
penter, City of DeFuniak
Springs, we finalized an op-,
erational and safety study
today at this location which
revealed.that a traffic signal:
met the federal guidelines for,
signalization. The Depart-
ment will place this location


on their list of projects t6
be completed once funding
becomes available."
Moss also said that be-
cause Bruce Avenue is a
county-maintained road, it-,
will be up to Walton County
to provide a westbound left
turn lane f6f
the intersection.
A request for zoning
change brought before
the council would also affecV
that intersection':
The requested change would
rezone property on the
north side of Bruce Avenue'to
C-2 commercial. Plans show
a car wash and a laundry
mat for that property.
At Monday's meeting, the
council also adopted a re-
vised cemetery ordinance
that incorporates changes
made to the document by the
city's Cemetery Board. Citi-
zens were not allowed to
comment and were told to
voice their concerns to the
cemetery board at its next'
meeting on October 17. The
ordinance was then adopted
without discussion.
The council approved'a-
lease agreement with
Nextel that will allow Nextel
to place nine antennae
panels on the DeFuniak
Springs water tower. As
specified in the lease, the
panels will be nine feet tall
and six to eight inches wide.-
They will be placed beldw
the catwalk on the tower ahd
will be painted to match
the tower exactly.
Parts of Quebec Avenue,
Shoemaker Drive and First
Street are to be resurfaced.
The city approved low bidder
Gum Creek Farms for the
project, ,

Ordinances regulating
new water and waste water
rates have been prepared
and will be given public hear-
ing at a futitre meeting.

The Walton County School
Board met on Thursday, Sep-
tember 7, at the Tivoli Ad-
ministrative Complex to dis-
cuss. a variety of items in-
cluding project bids and
supplements.
Wayne Miller, supervisor
of Administration and Op-
erations, opened bids on the

well as a project at Paxton to

nies bid on the covered walk-
way project at Paxton while
five different companies bid


on the site work at Mossy
Head. Lawrence Commercial
Systems was the low bidder
for the Paxton project as
they submitted a $36,000 fee.

to act on the bids until a 72-
hour written notice of
protest period expired.

A day at the races in Walton County


By Leigh Strickland
Voter turnout in the Wal-
ton County primary elec-
tion was not what Supervisor
of Elections Bobby Beasley
had hoped it would be.
"We were a little disap-
pointed in the turnout
because it wasn't but 25.4
percent," Beasley said. Of
33,798 registered Walton
County voters, only 8,570
ballots were cast for the pri-
mary, according to unofficial
election results.
This is not unusual.
though. Beasley said,
"The turnout's lower in pri-
maries than it is in
general elections. People
have always voted heavier in
general elections. They vote
heavier in presidential
years than gubernatorial
years, also. A lot of times,
amendments are on the gen-
eral elections ballot
that draw out more voters."


In the 2004 primary, turn-
out was nearly twice as high.
"It was like 43 percent in the
2004 primary, but we had a
Sheriff's race that had a lot
of candidates. There was
more interest in the 2004 pri-
mary."
The percentage of Walton
County voters who partici-
pated in the election was
higher than the state per-
centage. Of 10,429,566 regis-
tered voters in Florida, only
2,039,565 voted, some 19.6
percent.
There are 17,519 regis-
tered Republicans in Walton
County. On the state level,
5,084 of these voted in the
U.S. Senate primary. In the
Governor's primary, 5,194
voted, while only 4,553 voted
in the Chief Financial
Officer's race.
At the county level, 5,158
Republicans voted in the
County Commission District


2 race and 4,957 voted in the
County Commission District
4 race.
There are 11,582 regis-
tered Democrats in
Walton County. Of these,
2,646 voted in the
Governor's primary and
2,381 voted in the Attorney
General race.
Circuit judge races and
School Board races are non-
partisan races and so all vot-
ers vote in these. There are
33,798 registered voters in
Walton County.
There were three circuit
judge races. In the Group
15 race, 7,599 votes were
counted. In Group 23,
6,825, and in Group 24,
7,013.
There were also three
School Board district races.
In district two, 7,709 votes
were counted. In district
three, 7,735, and in district
five, 7,945.


Those who followed the re-
sults closely on the night of
September 5 know that there
was some delay in the record-
ing of results that night.
Beasley explained the de-
lay, "They passed a law
last year that all votes have
to go into the precinct.
It used to be that our early
voting, our absentee vot-
ing, those votes were put into
one bracket, so we
could upload those individu-
ally without it affecting
the precinct results. It was
recommended to us by
the state not to upload those
county wide vote centers un-
til we had all of our precincts
in."
Walton County voters will
vote in the general election
on November 7. For anyone
interested in voting sooner,
Beasley said, "All they have
to do is come to one of our of-
fices. From 8:30 to 4:30,


Monday through Saturday,
up to two weeks before the
election. That will start Oc-
tober 23 and go through No-
vember 4."
In November, voters will
be able to choose between Re-
public Kenneth Pridgen and
Democrat James Robbins
in the County Commission
District 2 race and between
Republican Sara Comander
and Democrat Willa Hertwig
in the County Commission
District 4 race.
Although school board
races are non-partisan, the
winner must have 50 percent
of the vote plus one to win
in the primary or else take
on the next highest vote-get-
ter in the November election.
Because of this,
Sharon Roberts must face
Twinette Thorn in the School
Board District 3 race. Repub-
lican Bobby Beasley and
Democrat Ray Padgett will


square off in the Supervis6r
of Elections race.
For U.S. Senator, Republi-
can Katherine Harris
will face Democrat Bill
Nelson, who ran unopposed
in the primary. For U.S. Rep-
resentative District 001, Re'
publican Jeff Miller faces
Democrat Joe Roberts.
For Governor, Republican
Charlie Crist faces Democtat
Jim Davis. For Attorney Gen-
eral, Walter "Skip"
Campbell, who won the
Democrat primary, faces Re-
publican Bill McCollum. Re-
publican Tom Lee faces
Democrat Alex Sink in the
Chief Financial Officer rate.
Of the general election' fi
November, Beasley said,
"I hope we have a higher
turnout. We'd like to have
100 percent turnout. I think
that might be a little unreal-
istic, but that's what we
strive for."

Question: How do I purchase a specialty license plate-like the Manatee Pr Challenger?

The Facts: Florida offers over 100 specialty license plates varying, from collegiate, environmental, and wildlife
designs. Although you can switch to a specialty plate at anytime, the best time is when your going to have to replace your
metal plate (Every 5 years). Otherwise, it will cost a few extra dollars. Specialty plates cost a set fee (annually) above the
standard Florida license plate, and these fees vary based on the type of plate. These additional funds go to support the
cause for which the specialty license plate was designed.

Recreational facility planned for Eucheeanna


By JEFFREY POWELL
The Eucheeanna Valley
community center grounds
are soon to have a new recre-
ational facility.
Construction of the facil-
ity, which will include a play-
ground, picnic tables, horse-
shoe pits and a 50 x 100 foot
basketball court, is slated to
begin near the end of Sep-
tember, according to Parks


and Recreations Manager
Brad Alford.
"We believe everybody in
the county is on board for this
project so hopefully construc-
tion will go smoothly," Alford
commented.
Commissioner Chairman
Scott Brannon spearheaded
the nearly $40,000 project.
"We included the citizens
of Eucheeanna in the plan-
ning phase in hopes of satis-


fying the areas needs,"
Brannon said.
Commissioner Brannon
also indicated a similar
project is in store for the Red
Bay area.
If all goes well, the
Eucheeanna project should
be completed by early No-

from a confidential informant
in reference to the location of
Ivy Roger Little, 63, wanted
by Escambia County
Sheriff's Office. Deputies
went to the potential location

perimeter and requested fur-
ther assistance.
Canine units from the Wal-
ton County Sheriff's Office
and the State of Florida Cor-
rections Department arrived
quickly and began a thor-
ough manhunt. Canines
picked up the scent and gave
chase immediately.


Little was found shortly

wanted out of Escambia
County on two counts of capi-


tal sexual battery and three
counts of lewd and lascivious
molestation on victim under

Editor,
September 5th was primary election day in Walton County.
Approximately 75% of the people in Walton County who have
previously said they were interested in our type of govern-
ment, "the right of free elections" by registering to vote, chose
not to avail themselves of the opportunity. The state of
Florida has made it very easy for us to vote. There is a 12-
day period including a couple of Saturdays for early voting.
The supervisor of elections established two locations; one in
DeFuniak Springs and one in Santa Rosa Beach for us to
utilize. There is the old reliable absentee ballot which can
be obtained by a telephone call to the SOE office. Ask, and
one will be mailed to you.
I was a poll worker at Liberty and it was thrilling to see a
couple of ladies come to the polls that are in the upper golden
years and a couple of first-time voters exercise their consti-
tutional right to vote. I hope they will continue to take ad-
vantage every time there is an election. One voter came to
the polls on roller blades. If a person wants to vote they will
find 'a way to the polling place.
The citizens willing to offer their services to the commu-
nity as an elected official are to be commended. The rigors
and expense of a campaign are enough to deter some people
from seeking office. You may not have received the most votes
but you were a winner by being willing to offer your ser-
vices and by expressing the issues you deemed important.
No cast vote is ever lost. The only lost vote is one not cast.
To each of the 75% who did not v6te in the primary election,
I encourage you to cast a winning vote in November's Gen-
eral Election.

Editor,
The current tax code is so complex that even the IRS
doesn't understand it. Reform proposals range from minor
"tweaks" to "abolish and start over."
This nation desperately needs a tax system that anyone
can easily understand. Such a tax system would end the
incredible time and money spent trying to comply with the
current system. It would allow working people to take home
their entire paycheck with no deductions. It would end the
post-April 15th anxiety over whether or not we will be au-
dited or fined each year.
There is a plan that can do all that. It is called the FairTax
and is based solely on federal consumption tax. To learn
more about this proposed new system of taxation, readers
should call 1-800-FAIRTAX, or visit the FairTax website at
www.FairTax.org.

This kind of thing could empty half the state. Wait a minute,
what am I saying? Let's get some billboards!

People in North and South Dakota also live longer-than
we do, as well as people in Oregon, Rhode Island, Utah, Ver-
mont, Washington and Wisconsin. The place with lowest life
expectancy Washington D.C. That's probably not fair to
our nation's capital. I'm sure it's just the fact of having the
highest murder rate in the country that skews the num-
bers.
Of course, this doesn't mean that once you get inside the
state boundaries you're going to live longer. There are safe
counties and some not-so-safe counties.
According to this online science journal, the safest coun-
ties in Colorado are Clear Creek, Eagle, Gilpin, Grand, Jack-
son, Park and Summit.counties, all with an average life ex-
pectancy of 81.3 years. Montgomery County, Maryland,
Lyon County, Iowa, and Sioux County, Iowa, also share that
same life expectancy rate'.
The burning question for you, Faithful Reader is, what
county in Florida has the oldest seniors? Surprisingly
enough, Collier County has an average life expectancy rate
of 81.0 years. On the opposite end-of the scale, stay away
from Union County and Baker County. Their average life
expectancy is only 70.2 years.
So, what does all of this mean? Absolutely nothing. It's
empty science. It doesn't account for, people who move into
and out of different states, illness, accidents or any other of
a thousand variables. This is just miscellaneous statistical
data. We'll all go when it's our time and not a moment be-
fore.
In the words of Mahatma Ghandi, "Learn as if you were
going to live forever. Live as if you were going to die tomor-

Kelly Green Crusade heading for DeFuniak Springs


By BRUCE COLLIER
Evangelist Kelly Green is
bringing his ministry to De-
Funiak Springs in a crusade
that will run from Sept. 17 -
20, at Walton High School
stadium.
Mike Ruth has been a
friend of Green for 30 years,
and is organizing the event.
Ruth said that he is far from
alone in his efforts, and that
he has been assisted by mu-
sic evangelist Simeon Nix of


Tampa, Brent Crowe, the Ja-
son Elam Band, the No
Longer Strangers band,
children's evangelist Gene
Wright, Jason Burgess, Rich-
ard Pannell, Don Butts, Jeff
Ransom, and Jason Burgess,
among others. The team is
drawn from Texas, Florida
and Georgia.
All of these people have
contributed to the team ef-
fort, said Ruth, acting as


musicians, technical support,
local liaisons, publicity, and
anything else that needs do-
ing.
Green's crusade has the
support of a number of local
churches, who are joining
across denominational lines
to participate and underwrite
the crusade.
The funds raised for the
crusade are handled by a lo-
cal treasurer, said Ruth.
Ruth said that Green be-


came a Christianr during the
"Jesus Movement" of the
1970s, and has had a travel-
ing ministry for about 30
years. Green spends about
half of his working time min-
istering in Germany and
Eastern Europe, Russia, and
South Africa.
The crusade will begin at
7 p.m. each night. On Sep-
tember 16, the day before the
crusade begins, a county-
wide youth rally will be held


a t the Lakeyard in DeFuniak
Springs, at 7 p.m.
Also featured on Sept. 19
and 20 will be "the county's
largest pizza blast," said
Ruth, beginning at 6 p.m.
each night. The Sept. 19 pizza
party is for students, and the
Sept. 20 party for children
ages 6 12.
Green's crusade will follow
the "Billy Graham" style, said
Ruth, though on a smaller
scale. There will be music and


preaching, and Ruth hopes to
fill the stadium with a maxi-
mum of 2,000 each night. A
love offering will be taken.
Ruth said that Green's
ministry is "very strong," and
"very respectable," and
praised the local churches for
working together in a com-
mon cause.
This kind of interdenomi-
national cooperation is "not
that common," said Ruth.


Witnesses say plane may have broken up before crash


By BRUCE COLLIER
Preliminary investigations
by the National Transporta-
tion Safety Board (NTSB)
into the Sept. 1 crash of a pri-
vate plane in the woods near
Argyle indicates that that the
plane may have been break-
ing apart during its final de-
scent.
Witnesses in the area


claim to have heard a loud
bang, and observed the plane
taking a spiral nose dive into
the ground.
Witnesses also reported
rain and lightning in the
area, but no conclusions have
been reached on the effect of
weather.
The plane, a Mitsubishi


MU2, was en route to
Panama City from Tulsa, OK.
The pilot and sole occupant,
Hardy "Buddy" Head of
Panama City, was dead at the
scene.
The plane's left wing and
engine were found a half mile
from the main crash site. In-
vestigators said that the


damage to the wing was con-
sistent with "overload fail-
ure."
No final conclusions have
been made. Weather, pilot ex-
perience and condition, air-
craft condition, and aircraft
controllers are all fac-
tors that must be considered.
The NTSB investigation may
take up to a year.


WRECKAGE MAY GIVE ANSWERS to cause of Sept. 1

Thank You

Dear friends,
I just want to say thank-you to everyone who
went to the polls and voted in last TuLebda) 's pri-
mary election. I can not tell you how much it
means to me to know that so many people sup-
ported me.
I want to thank Mr. Ryan, who showed his
integrity by waging a fair and honest race'
For these last few months, I've had a chance to meet new friends and hear
what matters most to the people of Walton County.
Now, as we prepare for the November General Election, we must focus on
our core values. We must work to reduce spending; use our. money wisely,
get busy putting our infrastructure in place and work to bring new industry
to Walton County.
With your help on November 7, we can work together t6sfind solutions to
the challenges we all face.
Thank you for your support and may God bless you all,

Proposed Lake

Jackson path in

planning stages

By BRUCE COLLIER
A public meeting was held
at Paxton Town Hall on Sept.
7 to discuss a proposed multi-
use path in the part of Wal-
ton County that borders the
south side of Lake Jackson.
The proposed path would run
along Lake Drive. There is
already a paved path along
the Alabama side of the lake.
The meeting is part of the
process required when sub-
mitting an application for a
Florida Recreation Develop-
ment Assistance Program
(FRDAP) grant.
The meeting was hosted by
Walton County Finance's
grants coordinator Angie
Biddle. Attending the meet-
ing were Bill McRae, recently
elected to the Paxton Town
Council, and William Foster,
who owns property on the
lake.
The paved path along Lake
Jackson stops about 50 yards
from the state line. The paved
path on the Alabama side
runs for about 1.4 miles, and
serves as a pedestrian and
bike trail.

"asset to the lake," and be-
lieve that it would be "used

and cyclists.
The proposed path would
require obtaining right of way
from property owners and
Department of Environmen-
tal Protection (DEP) permits
for construction across wet-
lands. Investigations would
also have to be made for any
historical sites or habitats of
endangered species.
The FRDAP grant applica-
tion is made to the DEP.
Biddle said that the "point
systems" on such applications
can be raised by agreeing to
add amenities such as picnic
facilities, nature trails,
benches, restrooms, play-
ground swings and a boat
ramp.


The grant application will
be submitted on Sept. 15.
Biddle said that an answer
will not be given until March
of 2007, when the governor
signs the state budget.
If the grant is approved, a
workshop will be held to get
more public input. If refused,
a budget issue request can be
made as part of a legislative
bill.
The estimated cost of the
project, if performed by a con-
tractor as a"turnkey project,"
is $350,000, said Biddle.
Costs could be reduced by
using county staff and paving
crew.
McRae said that he has
been working on this project
for years, adding that Walton
County Commissioner Ken
Pridgen is also "very sup-
portive."

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

Thank you for your vote of
confidence in the last election.
I 48.37% of those voting in Walton
10 1 County wanted a change in

District 5 school board race.
I believe I was successful in
bringing to light the issues concerning
dedication in attending board
meetings, the need to streamline
spending in order to lower taxes for
our citizens and a focus to return to
i : making decisions in the best interest
of the students. As voters, please
continue to hold your elected school
officials responsible in these areas.
God Bless each of you.

Most visitors to the Walton County area are probably unav.are of the MIusFogee Nation 1 Florida Tribe
of Eastern Creek Indians).
This trend is likely to change if the South Walton Tourist Development Council kTDC; has
anything to do with it. Headquartered in the east-central town of Bruce, the Muscogee Nation is
participating in an ongoing effort to diversify Walton County tourism. "We want to provide
visitors with an experience that enhances their trip to the beaches," said TDC New Product
Development Manager Tiffany McCaskill.
The Muscogee Nation welcomes the attention and has hopes of educating the public
of their proud heritage.
Current tribal members can trace their ancestry to the 1837 excommunication of
Indians from southern Alabama. Creeks followed the Choctowhatchee River south
to escape the federal government's removal policies. Within twenty years, Florida
had barred all Native Americans from living in the state. The Creeks that f
remained were forced to suppress their Indian customs in a not so subtle
form of ethnic camouflage.
The year 1890 saw the opening of the Pine Level School for children in
Bruce. This same schoolhouse building houses the Muscogee head-
quarters today.
The school enrollment records and the documents of the 1912
Bruce Methodist Church were used as evidence of Muscogee
ancestry needed in future court battles with the federal
government, court battles that continue today to achieve
full recognition as a Native American people.
Despite ongoing litigation with the Feds, positive
attitudes can be found in the Muscogee youth. "I
was raised an American Indian," said 20-year-old
college student Alisha Tucker, "I'm very proud of
my heritage," she added.
Citizens who believe they could be of Creek
decent are invited to research the Muscogee
Nation's genealogical records at 278 Church i .
Road in Bruce. The old school house also M,
has a gift shop and is open from 9-3
Monday Friday except holidays. I T
The Muscogee Nation can be
reached at 835-2078. ..

WALTON COUNTY MAS-
TER GARDENER
Professor Gary Knox from
the North Florida UF/IFAS
Research and Education
Center in Quincy will speak
on Crape Myrtles best cul-
tivation practices, diseases,
pests, pruning and new cul-
tivar introduction. The pro-
gram will be held at the Wal-
ton County Extension Office
on Hwy. 83 on Wednesday,
September 20, and is co-spon-
sored by the Walton County
Master Gardeners and the
DeFuniak Springs Garden
Club. Coffee and sign in
starts at 9:30 a.m. and the
program will begin at 10 a.m.
The public is welcome to at-
tend this free program.
Gary Knox was recently
named the "2005 Educator of
the Year" by the Florida
Nursery Growers and Land-
scape Association. His spe-
cialty is ornamental horticul-
ture. He has done numerous
field trials with different
crape myrtle cultivars to de-
termine best cultivation and
pruning practices. Crape
Myrtles, Lagerstroemia spe-
cies, have become a very
popular landscape plant in
north and central Florida
and throughout the south.
Over the last 30 years, breed-
ing programs have produced
superior new forms, with a
wide range of plant sizes and
habits, improved flowering,
new flower colors, ornamen-
tal bark, ornamental foliage,
disease resistance and in-
creased vigor.
Lagerstroemia species are
deciduous shrubs or trees.
The scientific name
Lagerstroemia, was coined in
1759 by Carl Linnaeus, who
described and named the
plant in honor of Magnus von
Lagerstroem, an avid natu-
ralist. The crape myrtle de-
rives its common name from
its crepe-like, crinkled petals
and the resemblance of its
leaves to the true myrtle,
Myrtus communis. "Crape
Myrtle" is a peculiarly-

American term. In other
parts of the world
"Lagerstroemia" is often used
as the common name for
crape myrtle.
Crepe myrtle is valued for
its prolific summer flowers.
Many new cultivars bloom
for several months and are
very heat and drought toler-
ant. Flowering can begin as
early as May and continue
into the fall. Flower colors
range from shades of purple,
lavender, white, pink, and
red, including "true red" a
relatively recent develop-
ment. Some cultivars have
bicolor flowers, two colors on
each petal, while other crapes
have panicles composed of a
mix of flower colors.
Leaves on most hybrid cul-
tivars are lance shaped. They
are often tinged in red in the
spring and turn dark green
by summer. In north Florida
and northwards, foliage may

turn brilliant yellow, orange
or red when cold weather
comes. When they lose their
fall leaves, they can have an
attractive silhouette if con-
servative pencil-pruning has
been done.
The tree forms can have
gnarled, sinuous character
with smooth bark or exfoliat-
ing bark, which can make a
beautiful living sculpture in
a drab winter landscape. Pol-
larding is the form of prun-
ing when the top is chopped
off each year. When this is
done, one loses the natural
beauty of the plant. A vari-
ety of pruning methods will
be addressed at this pro-
gram.
Crape myrtles are one of
the most versatile landscape
plants for sunny locations.
They come in many different
sizes. Dwarfs start at less
than four feet while the tree'
forms can exceed 20 feet. To
help in picking the size that
is right for the spot in any
landscape, Gary Knox has
written a publication "Crape
Myrtle in Florida" ENH-52.
The book has charts descib-
ing each cultivars' character-
istics, such as height, bark
color, flower color and disease
resistance. Much of the infor-
mation in this article was
taken from this IFAS paper.
The ENH-52 publication will
be available free at the pro-
gram or those interested can
download it from the IFAS
website http://edis.ifas.edu/

After the program, the De-
Funiak Springs Garden Club
will sell three cultivars of
crapes: 'Apalachee,' a tree

The

open

By ROBIN NEWTON
The Defuniak Springs
Open Door Community Club
will hold its first meeting for
the 2006-2007 year at 11 a.m.
on Thursday, September 14,
at the Best Western Cross-
roads Inn at Interstate 10.
The monthly meetings are
held on the second Thursday
of each month from Septem-
ber until May.
The club began in March of
1980 when a small group of
women wanted to make a dif-
ference in their community.
At the first gathering, held in
the home of Elizabeth
Jeffcoat, they discussed the
need to welcome women who
were new to the area. The fol-
lowing month, the Open Door
Community Club started its
long-standing tradition of
meeting for lunch and fellow-
ship at the Ramada Inn (now
the Best Western).
The tradition goes on today
as women of the community
gather for the purpose of
friendship, cultural activi-
ties, and community service.
Members are encouraged to
bring a friend, old or new, to
the meetings.
The club adopts a group or
cause to support each year.
Donations, which are gath-
ered at each meeting
throughout the year, are dis-
tributed in May.
Each month the meeting
room is decorated brightly
and the members are treated
to guest speakers, activities,
and door prizes. Guest speak-
ers share information on top-
ics ranging from self-defense
to butterfly gardens.
December hosts the Christ-
mas party with an ornament
exchange. All birthdays are
celebrated in January with
one big party, complete with
gifts, favors, and a huge
birthday cake. The parade of
funny, homemade hats at the
last meeting of the year re-
minds everyone of the friend-
ships they have shared and
will renew in September.
Women new to the area
and those that have lived
here all of their lives are in-
vited to stop by the Best
Western Crossroads in on
Thursday, Sept. 14, at 11 a.m.
and join these fine women of
the community their door is
open!



Yamato's Restaurant is at
258 N. Eglin Parkway in Fort
Walton Beach.
Those wishing to carpool
are to meet in the old Wal-
Mart parking lot that morn-
ing, Sept. 21. The members
will be leaving for Fort Wal-


ton at 9:45. a.m.
Red Hat Dollies also need
to put Wednesday, Dec. 13,
on their calendars as they
will be having a Christmas
holiday party at A Classic
Affair, in Crestview on that
date.


Community Calendar

Pandemic Influenza;
Considerations for Businesses

Article 5 in, a series of 7
A
In the event of pandernic influenza, businesses will play a key role in protecting employees'
health and safety as well as limiting the negativeimpact to the economy and society. Planning for 0
pandernic influenza is an important part of routine busine'ss practices, som, ewhat like general hur
ricane preparations. Noted below are some suggestions that businesses can take into account as a
part of ongoing disaster preparedness. 0

4b Train and prepare ancillary workers (cross-training and looking to other labor forces such as
retirees).
411
4 Develop and plan for scenarios that may result in an increase or decrease in your products or
0
services.
Develop a list of alternative supply sources.
Keep up to date with reliable pandemic information. Good resources are the Center for Disease
Control or Florida Department of Health websites. Share information with employees a bulletin
board with up to date information is a great method.
Establish an emergency communications-plan (and back-up) and keep it current.
Anticipate adjustments in absenteeism practices to allow for sick workers, family members ill-
ness, and school/business closures.
Encourage and track annual influenza vk-diiYd66n"s for employees.
0
Implement guidelines -to help control the spread of, g erms; increased fiJnd %%a.hing, decreasoO
numbers of people'in crowded spaces, encourage "cough and cold etiquette". 01
0
0 Assure adequate supplies of tissues, paper towels, soap and hand sanitizer are readily available.
Evaluate what types of supportservices are available to employees such as churches, mental
0 health facilities, and general health care facilities.
0 Consider flexible work hours and worksites.
4, Consider restricting business travel to affected geographic areas.
Keep your employees an involved part of the plan.
4111
Keep them informed of the plan.
Provide information for at-home care.
4>
Keep communications open.
Anticipate employees fear and anxiety and plan co M*munications accordingly.
Share your best practices with others in the community.

This information seems like a lot to comprehend but if you think through what is su gested you
will find that many of these concerns could just as easily become reality if we had a direct hit 0'
0,, from a tornado or a hurricane. The most important thing to remember is don't panic, the sky is
not falling and with a little extra planning you and your employees will have less anxiety because
planning occurred long before we were faced with a true pandemic.

Ground Zero
(a tribute to our fallen heroes)
Five years have come and
gone since that fateful
day.
Ground Zero will remain,
pictures still convey.
More than three thousand
folks have seen an early
grave.
Some also lost their lives,
while trying to save.
A devils' face was seen,
in that fiery plume.
Those who made this
happen, have now met
their doom!
I've no flowers to send,
just a little prayer.
For one's who're left
behind may God bless you
there!

When Eddie Cantor was a
young man, he was in a hurry
to hit the top. But his grand-
mother cautioned. "Don't go
so fast, son, or you'll miss the
scenery."
One night, years later, af-
ter making another hit, he
received a telegram from his
wife. Their fourth daughter
had been born. Then he re-
membered his grand-
mother's words. "You'll, miss
the scenery."
"How much I had mii sed,"
he said. "Ever since that
moment of truth. I've inade
it a point to pause and enjoy
the scenery."
Enjoy the scenery, and
don't forget the next world
while living in this one.
The Bible says, "Be careful
how you live. Make good use
of every opportunity you
have."

Tongue of the Learned.
By Dr. Charles Satterwhite
Pastor, Freeport UMC

Have you ever been so weary in your spirit that you felt
you would drop? Whoever speaks to you next while you
are in that condition holds a lot of power in their tongue
even if they don't know it.Along comes one who either
lifts you up or crushes you further just by what they say.
I've had it happen both ways and I know which I prefer.
Isaiah 50:4 says; "The Lord God has given Me the tongue
of the learned, that I should know how to speak a word in
season to him who is weary."
Here's what I can tell you doesn't work for me to pro-
vide a word in season. I wonder if you feel the same way.
A person who challenges where you are and makes you
feel like whatever condition you are in is your fault. Maybe
so but how does that help? A know-it-all person who has
all the solutions while you just want to feel heard.
Ahhh, how refreshing it is when the opposite occurs. A
person who speaks words of encouragement and life and
somehow causes your spirit to arise. How welcome that
is. As I examine myself I have to admit that I have prob-
ably been both kinds of people at times. There are many
words I'd like to retrieve because I know the person re-
ceiving them did not go away refreshed.
I think the "tongue of the learned" is a slow tongue
that thinks before it speaks. It is the tongue that asks
the Lord whether to say anything at all and if so, what. It
is the tongue that wants to impart God's grace rather
than be right or justify itself.
Come and watch us grow at the Freeport UMC. We
begin at 9 a.m. for Sunday School; 10 a.m. for Worship; 6
p.m. Movie Night Sunday; Wednesday-prayer 6 p.m. Stop
by here on your way to eternity!


It's not your standard funeral home...


it's the standard in funeral homes.


When it comes to measuring levels of
service, there are all the other funeral
homes, and then there is ours.
Come experience our unmatched
commitment to excellence and
comfortable surroundings and we
think you'll agree.

Melissa Ann Beasley
April 25, 1954 September 17, 2003

God didn't promise us days without pain,
laughter without sorrow,
or sun without rain.
But God did promise us
strength for the day,
Comfort for the tears,
and a light for the way.
And for those who believe
in His kingdom of love,
He answers their faith
with peace from above.

We pray that everyone who
loved Melissa has found peace.
We know Melissa is at peace because
she is in the loving arms of our Father.
Let us not mourn her death but
celebrate her everlasting life.
We will always remember Melissa for her
genuine love for her fellow man and her
unwavering faith in Jesus Christ.

Walton Braves fall to Chiles 35-14


By PATRICK CASEY
Tallahassee Chiles scored
three touchdowns in the final
eight minutes of the contest
as the Timberwolves
knocked off the Walton
Braves 35-14 in a non-district
football game.

Walton overcame a slow
start and a 14-0 deficit to
give the host school all they
wanted for their Homecom-
ing game.
Tallahassee Chiles set up
their first score by intercept-
ing a Tarrell Bramlet pass
that was deflected behind the
line of scrimmage and caught
by Olufemi Lamikanra at the
Walton 43-yard line. Eight
plays later Chip Henderson
crashed in from two yards
out to give the Timberwolves
a 7-0 lead.
Chiles next score came via
a special teams play as
Melvin Ray scooped up the
bouncing football after an
Israel Baza punt and raced
67 yards down the home
sideline to give the host team
a 14-0 lead. Baza was
roughed on the punt, but no
flag was thrown by the ref-
eree.
Walton put together a 12-
play, 68- yard drive to get
back into the contest before
halftime as Alex Smith


caught a five-yard pass from
Bramlet to cut the deficit
to 14-6.
Walton threatened on
their first two possessions of
the second half, but Bramlet
tossed another interception,
this time in the endzone to
stop a drive on Walton's first
possession of the third quar-
ter. The Braves weren't to be
denied on their second pos-
session as they forced a short
punt from Chiles and
marched 67 yards in nine
plays for the tying score.
Bramlet hit Smith with a 22-
yard strike, and then again
on the two-point conversion
to tie the game with 10:50 left
in the contest.
Chiles erupted from that
point for three touchdowns.
Alex Corder scored on a one-
yard run with 7:40 left in the
game to reclaim the lead at
21-14, then added another
score on a five-yard run by
Chip Henderson after Walton
fumbled at their own 31-yard
line. Alex Corder added a 17-
yard run in the final minute
to stretch the margin to 35-
14.
Walton (1-2) will have an
open week before facing
Chipley on Friday, Septem-
ber 22, at Everett Yates Me-
morial Stadium at 7 p.m. in
a non-district battle.

Sports News & Notes


By PATRICK CASEY
The Denver Nuggets re-
signed forward Reggie Evans
to a multi-year contract. The
deal is believed to be worth
about $18 million. The 26-
year-old Evans averaged 5.2
points, 8.7 rebounds and 23.3
minutes in 26 games with
the Nuggets last season. The
Nuggets acquired the
Pensacola Woodham High
graduate from Seattle in a
four-team trade Feb. 23.
Former Walton athlete
Margaret Yates will not know
the extent of her knee injury,
suffered Friday during
the PJC Volleyball Classic,
until she gets the results of
her MRI exam. Yates, who is
a sophomore at Pensacola
Junior College, originally
suffered a knee injury to her
left leg as a senior at Walton
while playing in a December
2004 high school basketball
tournament in the Mobile
area. Coach Pete Pena told
the Pensacola News Journal
that she could be out 4-6
weeks depending on test re-
sults.
Florida State's 13-10 vic-
tory over Miami on Labor
Day night was ESPN's most-
viewed college football game.
The Labor Day game was on
ESPN and ESPN2 and drew
an average, of 6,330,000


households. The 6.9
rating made it the network's
second highest-rated college
football game behind a 7.7
rating for Florida State at
Miami on Oct. 8, 1994.
The South Walton volley-
ball team continues to
struggle as the Seahawks
were swept by Panama City
Arnold and Freeport in the
last week as the team's
record fell to 2-10. Freeport
won the county volleyball
title by defeating Walton for
the second time as well as
Pensacola Christian for their
first district win. Freeport is
10-2 and playing very well as


the squad nears the midpoint
of the volleyball season.
Walton played in the
Navarre Volleyball Invita-
tional over the weekend and
recorded a 1-2 mark. The
Braves beat Pensacola Chris-
tian but lost to Navarre
and Baker. Walton is 7-5
overall and has a date at
Pensacola Catholic on Thurs-
day, September 14 at 7 p.m.
The Baker junior varsity
football team handed Free-
port their second loss of the
season 22-14.

By CHUCK HINSON
Florida State and Bobby
Bowden were still trying to
recover from the Sept. 4 vic-
tory over Miami, when they
opened their home season
back at Doak Campbell Sta-
dium this past Saturday. It
was not the type of opener
any Seminole fan wanted.
FSU barely escaped in the


game in the same week.
Despite an average day on
the field for Bowden and his
Noles, they do lead the coun-
try in rushing defense, giving
up just 13 yards per game on
average. They are also 11th
in total defense, but they
have no offense to be found.
They are still relying on the
arm and. strategic playing of
Weatherford who is leading
the pack without any help
from a running team.
This weekend, younger
Bowden and the Tigers from
Clemson, roll into town to
take on daddy and the Noles


in what has been predicted to
be one of the most heated
games for both teams this
season.
The battle of the Bowdens
has become more and more of
a college football staple that
has seen the rise of the Tigers
from season to season.
Tommy and the Clemson
boys are still reeling from
their overtime loss to ACC ri-
val Boston College this past
weekend. The Tigers will still
come in confident of a victory
since they slaughtered the
Seminoles last year in Death
Valley with a 35-14 victory.
FSU will be struggling this
weekend against Clemson
due to losing three key start-
ing defensive tackles who
were lost during the Troy
State game. The Tigers are


still regrouping and also have
had some early season prob-
lems handling the ball with
their offense.
The No. 15-ranked Miami
Hurricanes did not seem to
have any problem with
FAMU at home in the Orange
Bowl when they polished off
the Rattlers, 51-7. They have
their own hands full this
weekend when they travel to
Lousiville to tangle with the
No. 12-ranked Cardinals.
Florida had no problem
with Central Florida this
weekend and moved up in the
top 10 rankings to the No. 6
and No. 7 spots in both polls.
The Gators will have their
hands full this weekend on
the road at Tennessee who is
ranked in the No. 13 and No.
17 positions in both polls.


cepted a Trojan pass that set
up the score by Geno Hayes
and sealed the victory for the
Seminoles with just a little
more than a minute remain-
ing in play.
Florida State barely
slipped by Miami in the open-
ing game with a 13-10 victory
in a very heavy defensive
game on both sides. But the
win, on the road, boosted the
Seminoles into the top 10
standings in the USA poll and
with this past weekend's win,
gave them a solid standing in
the top 10 for the USA Today
and remained at the No. 9
spot in the AP poll. Still
the problem that Bowden's
camp argued was that they
had two games in a week and
that was too much. In fact, it
has been reported that FSU
will not schedule another
Monday night opening game
followed by a Saturday night

Federer wins U.S.
Open
By CHUCK HINSON
It was a new achievement
for Swedish tennis star Roger
Federer, who won his third-
straight U.S. Open after de-
feating American Andy
Roddick on Sunday, 6-2, 4-6,
7-5, and 6-1.
The victory for Federer
made him the first man since
Ivan Lendl in 1985-87 to win
three consecutive U.S. Opens.
He is also the only man to
win Wimbeldon and the U.S.
Open, back-to-back three
years in a row.
Federer went 27-1 at this
year's Grand Slam tourna-
ment, and the only setback
for him came against Rafeal
Nadal in the French Open
earlier this summer. Federer
has moved alone into sixth
place for total major tourna-
ment titles, behind Pete
Sampras who holds the
record at 14.
The only other athlete that
could imagine the feel of the
ultimate winning season
would have to be Tiger Woods
who was present on Sunday
for the final match. Federer
and Woods did meet before
the. match and it must have
impressed Federer, who has
dominated the sport of ten-
nis, just as Woods did on the
golf course this season.
The U.S. Open had several
other exciting and memo-
rable events that took place
throughout the tournament.
Male tennis star Andre
Aggasi and women's profes-
sional player Martina
Navratilova both played their
final matches and said their
final farewells to their ex-
traordinary careers and to
the fans and supporters they
both have had for several de-
cades.
Navratilova finished her
career with a mixed doubles
competition on Saturday
evening with Bob Bryan, to
give her her 59th career ma-
jor championship.

BCC agrees to quarter-mill drop


Citizens spell relief 'M-I-L-L-A-G-E


By Dotty Nist
This year's preliminary
Walton County budget hear-
ing was one of the best-at-
tended in recent memory,
and for citizens the theme
was the need for tax relief.
The Walton County Board
of County Commissioners
(BCC) got the message. The
commissioners agreed to
some reduction from the pro-
posed budget amount and
directed staff to evaluate the
possibility of additional re-
duction before the tax rate
and county budget are "set in
stone" at the final budget
hearing on Sept. 25.
Walton County Finance
Director Bill Imfeld noted
that the proposed budget was
based on an evaluation of
$16.5 billion for the total tax-
able value of property in the
county.
The budget proposed at
the outset of the Sept. 11
hearing for fiscal year 2006-
07 totaled over $142 million,
representing a 22.54 percent
increase over the previous
fiscal year's budget. Fueled
by an approximate 28 per-
cent overall increase in prop-
erty values over the past
year, the increase was de-;
spite a proposed one-tenth-
mill reduction in the millage
rate.


One mill equals one dollar
per $1,000 of assessed prop-
erty value.
Imfeld explained that the
budget was geared to the five
top priorities set by the BCC
in their strategic planning,
including roads and bridges,
infrastructure, public safety,
parks and recreation, arid
growth management.
Rick Halpern of Grayton
Beach noted that, with wage
increases at just three to five
percent over the past year,
the commissioners would do
well to look at reducing the
proposed 22.54 percent bud-
get increase.
"I don't think people in
this county can afford this
rate," Halpern said, adding
that he was thinking of mov-
ing out of Walton Coun.ty as
a, result of the tax rate,
Santa Rosa Beach: resi-
dent and property owner
David Kramer commented
that the local economy is "16
to 17 months into a slide" ex-
pected to worsen and that
could last from three to seven
years. Many residents are
now faced with not being able
to sell their-properties, for the
appraised value, lhe ex-
plained.
Kramer urged the BCC to
"pull that belt in" as the pub-
lic is having to do. He sug-


gested reducing the increase
to 11.5 to 15 percent.
Bonnie McQuiston of the
Walton County Taxpayers
Associations (WCTA) urged
the commissioners to base
the budget on the "actual
needs of the county," which
has increased in population
about 33 percent in five
years.
She complained that with
real estate not selling now
and property insurance ei-
ther not available or prohibi-
tively high, the proposed
budget increase will hit tax-
payers with a "triple
whammy."
"Take out the pruning
knife," McQuiston concluded.
Bob Hudson, WCTA mem-
ber, agreed, calling for
growth in the operations
budget to be limited to six
percent.
Hudson did a power point
presentation showing,
among other information.
that the county population
had increased approximately
48 percent since 1998, while
increase in the ad valprem
tax rate had amounted to
over 171 percent for the same
period.
Lane Rees, Eastern Lake
resident and former county
commissioner, recommended
that the commissioners re-


duce the operations budget
by looking first at their own
staff. He was of the opinion
that commissioners with
more than one executive as-
sistant would do well to con-
sider going to just one assis-
tant.
District 5 Commissioner
Cindy Meadows suggested a
number of actions that could


provide taxpayer relief.
One was to ask the Florida
Legislature to cap tax in-
creases on second homes as
is done with primary resi-
dences. She also suggested a
look at how property is ap-
praised, commenting that it
does not make sense to her
that property appraisals
have increased in the range


C-U-T

of 30 percent over the past
year, given the hurricane i m-:
pacts and real estate market
conditions.
Meadows also suggested
looking at legislative changes,
that would allow the tourist
tax to the used for road re-&
pairs and other infrastrue-,

ATTENDEES AT the. well-attended Sept. 11 Walton County budget hearing talk follow
ing the meeting.


Citizen watchdogs on patrol


By Leah Stratmann
While most people in Wal-
ton County are content to
read the news of action taken
by the Walton Board of
County Commissioners
(BCC) or the Planning Com-
mission in the newspapers,
two men, David Kramer and
Don Crim, make attending
those meetings a part of their
lives. Kramer attends the
meetings of both sets of com-
missioners, while Crim fo-
cuses solely on the BCC.
Kramer has been attend-
ing meetings since 1986. "It
stems from my occupation as
a Realtor, a citizen, and an
investor. I've been involved
with the details of the plan-
ning code since its inception
and I was the co-chairman of
the land use committee for a
citizens advocacy group for
the Northwest Florida Con-
servation and Development
Trust," he said.
Meanwhile Crim has long
been a resident of Walton
County and has been attend-
ing BCC meetings for 40
years. Confined to a wheel-


chair after a freak accident
with a rototiller, Crim retired
,from building radar sites in
1995. "I still get around
pretty good," he said.
"I have spoke my piece
through the years and try to
tell (the commissioners) the
way I feel. I read the meet-
ing minutes on the computer
,and make sure the state-
'ments I make are correct. It
is not always correct in the
paper. There are statements
being made that are not re-
iported that strould be' re-
:ported .An example is the af-
fordable housing being built
by Regional Utilities Inc.
(RUI). The utility is supposed
to belong to the! county when
they pay their debts off. The
county will be paying RUI for
these houses, at a rate of
$3,000 thousand per house.
The county keeps signing off
on bonds for R UI, so they will
never be debt free and thus
the utility will never belong
to the county and the taxpay-
ers keep paying," Crim as-
serted.
"If the minutes were re-


corded verbatim, the public
would get a lot. more. The
minutes are summarized,
rather than putting in every-
thing that is said in the
room," Crim said. "I'm just a
taxpayer. I don't have an ax
to grind. If I think the com-
missioners are not thinking
deep enough down the road
20 yeari-. Will tell them that.
The jail has been being built
since 1996 and that is too
long and now the cost has
risen to $28 million. Nobody
can make a decision and ev-
erybody has to have input
which delays the whole, pro-
cess and costs the taxpayer
in the end," he said.
Compared to Crim,
Kramer is a newcomer to the
area, arriving in 1984 and
moving to Walton County in
1985. "I used to play har-
monica at the old Seagrove
Restaurant, which became
the Wheelhouse Restaurant.
When I started going to
meetings, there were maybe
seven people at a meeting. I
figured the quickest way to
take people's rights and


money was to have no over-
sight," he said.
Kramer is intimately fa-
miliar with the county's com-
prehensive planning code
and has something,to say
about virtually every project
brought before the planning
commission. He has been
known to challenge the
county on facets of the code
he feels are being misinter-
preted or are not being ap-
plied in a like manner to all
applicants.
"All I'm doing is trying to
stick my finger in the dike.
There is no freedom without
limitations. The limitations
are what I am all about,"
Kramer said. "It is rare that
any good ordinances stem
from good planning because
Walton County has histori-
cally had a band-aid ap-
proach to legislation. We
treat the symptoms, not the
disease."
Neither Kramer nor Crim
have current political aspira-
tions of their own, but
Kramer said he might con-
sider a run for the BCC in


2008 if most of the current
commissioners are candi-
dates again. As Kramer owns
homes in four of the five dis-
tricts, the entire county is
more or less open to him.
"I would rather sit on the
citizen side of the table and
be able to ask the questions
to which I already know the
answers, than sit on the com-
missioner side and have to
listen to untruths. I'm not
afraid to ask the commission-
ers questions when I doubt
their actions," Crim said.
Crim said in years past,
the commissioners would
hold a public meeting the day
before the commissioners of-
ficially met. "They used to
have a public meeting on
Monday to discuss items on
the agenda for the Tuesday
meeting, but they don't do
that anymore, which seems
like the decisions have al-
ready been made before the
public part of the meeting.
You have to stay after the
BCC. Decisions are already
made when they go into the
room," he said.


"It cost taxpayers
$900,000 to close the side of
the courthouse where the jail
used to be. They (the BCO)
didn't figure that into tho
original drawings. They put
a side on the jail, but not the
courthouse. That's just one4if
the things wrong with plan-
ning in the county. Planners,
building inspectors, archi-
tects, anid the commission are
to blame. They are the ones
in charge of the money and
they have to approve all the
change orders and every-
thing else. A lot of things go
on that I question.
"When the original hospi-
tal was there, we bought the
Warren Building for $77,000
and we could have bought
the old Wal-Mart building for
$875,000 and used it as a
courthouse. It would haye
cost about $1 million to
reconfigure the Wal-Mart
building for the courthouse
and offices. The parking was'
there and everything, but wer
didn't and look at what we
have had to spend .sineb
then," he said.


Design review board ponders model homes


By Dotty Nist
Just when it appeared
there were no new Walton
County Scenic Corridor is-
sues "under the sun," an-
other one surfaced last week.
A proposed use on the sce-
nic corridor resulted in op-
posing opinions among Wal-
ton County. Design Review
Board (DRB) members.
Board members review
proposals for U.S. 98 and U.S.
331 south of the bay against
the Scenic Corridor Stan-
dards, with the goal of insur-


ing that projects comply with
the standards' architectural,
landscaping, signage and site
work requirements.
On Sept. 7, a proposal by
realtors Gerald and Pat
Wallens of Higher Standard
Homes prompted a good deal
of discussion.
The couple had submitted
plans for a site on U.S. 331'
south of t~e bay, consisting of
a real estate office and two
model modular homes.
Pat Wall'ens explained that
the two homes would not be


for sale but would allow pro- fications. resulting from re-


spective buyers to view ex-
amples of the wide variety of
modular homes that are of-
fered by the company. These
manufactured homes can be
ordered to the buyer's speci-
fications. They are trans-
ported to the area in seg-
ments, which are lowered by
cranes onto the buyer's prop-
erty and combined on site.
Representing the county,
planner Tim Brown indi-
cated that the applicants had
agreed to all requested modi-


view of the proposal and had
incorporated them into their
plans. These included chang-
ing gravel/shell parking to
asphalt and gravel/shell side-
walks to concrete, plus reduc-
ing width of structures to
meet the ratio for maximum
building width to lot width.
The site is being required
to conform to scenic corridor
requirements, including
those involving landscaping
and color of buildings.
John Hazleton, co-owner of


property adjoining the site
under discussion, objected
regarding the manufactured
model homes. "They're not
scenic corridor caliber," he
stated. HazletA6 Was one of
the people who worked to
develop the scenic corridor
standards in the mid-1990s.
Pat Wallens countered that
the homes are nothingg like
a mobile home" and are' built
stronger than stick-built
homes." She added that.
higher standard, homes are
now found all over the area.


Pat Blackshear, county
planning director, added that
the county's growth manage.
meant regulations require
that manufactured home$
such as these be treated ii
an identical manner as tra:-
ditional homes. a
Bob Johnson, board chair-
man, commented that he had
had occasion to view some'of
the company's modulda
homes and found them to
comparable to much higher-

Walton County Work Force Housing Task Force forums set


The Walton County Work
Force Housing Task Force is
working with national ex-
pert, Michael Brown with
Burlington Associates, to
help strategically develop
the creation of the Work
Force Housing Center &
Community Land Trust. Due
to the high volume of inquir-
ies about this topic and since
he will be in this area, it was
decided to host a Community
Work Force Housing Forum
on Sept. 12, 8:30 a.m. 10
a.m. at the Chamber's Santa


Snookie Parrish will
present a how-to program on
natural, sustainable land-
scaping and gardening for
homeowners. Her landscap-
ing focuses on the use of na-
tive and drought tolerant
plants with emphasis on
xeriscaping, organic and en-
vironmentally friendly prac-
tices.
Parrish is an Alabama and
Florida Master Gardener


Rosa Beach office.
The intent is to allow any-
one from this region want-
ing to learn more about
Workforce Housing, and/or
Community Land Trusts,
and have an opportunity to
ask specific questions to an
industry expert. The group
extended an invitation to
Bay & Okaloosa Counties
Task Force's.
Brown states, "The crisis
of housing affordability is one
that can no longer be ignored.
The widening gaps between


and a Florida Master Natu-
ralist. She was the Head Gar-
dener at WaterColor from
2000 2004 and the Site Su-
pervisor at Alys Beach from

ber of the Florida Native
Plant Society and the North
American Butterfly Associa-
tion:
The forum begins at 7PM
on September 28 at the
Coastal Branch Library lo-
cated at 437 Greenway Trail,


what housing costs and what
broader segments of our lo-
cal workforce can afford to
pay is having a profound im-
pact on the quality of life and
economic vitality of the local
communities.

Thank You

Dear friends,
I just want to say thank-you to everyone who
went to the polls and voted in last Tuesday's pri-
mary election. I can not tell you how much it j .
means to me to know that so many people sup-
ported me.
I want to thank Mr. Ryan, who showed his
integrity by waging a fair and honest race.
For these last few months, I've had a chance to meet new friends and hear
what matters most to the people of Walton County.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 2006


Heads Up

Workforce Housing proposal to be considered at the next county commissioner meeting


The cost of housing in Wal-
ton County has become a
major force in limiting the
area economy. The workforce
is being forced to seek more
affordable housing farther
from the job centers and com-
mute longer distances to
work, claims Regional Utili-


ties of South Walton County.

Regional says that the cost
of housing forces workers to
spend more of their potential
savings on monthly housing
costs, limiting the ability to
improve their own lives.


When prospective eco-
nomic investors investigate
Walton County one of the
leading factors in the deci-
sion-making process is the
availability of housing for
employees. As a result, inno-
vative strategies to foster at-
tainable workforce housing


are being considered.
Regional Utilities, in con-
cert with the City of
Freeport, a private developer,
and others are proposing a
workforce housing project on
a tract of land near Freeport
that will help alleviate the
shortage of attainable hous-
ing for a significant part of
the local workforce.
Dewey Wilson of Regional


Utilities, private developer
Lloyd Blue, Mark Mustian of
Nabors, Giblin and
Nickerson, a representative
from Florida Housing Fi-
nance Corporation, and oth-
ers presented the project pro-
posal to the Board of County
Commissioners in a work-
shop on Aug. 29. The Board
of Commissioners expected
to hear more and possibly


appoint board members of
the not-for-profit corporation
that will oversee the project
in their regular meeting on
Sept. 12.
This issue was on the
agenda at 4:20 pm, Tuesday,
Sept. 12. The meeting was
held at the South Walton
Courthouse Annex located at
31 Coastal Centre Boulevard;
Santa Rosa Beach.


Northwest Florida Oyster Project

needs volunteers September 22


The Ch.vw.i hatchee Ba-
sin AI I iL.uII L of'Okaloosa-Wal-
ton C,,'.- and the Florida
D,-p.ar nwumt of Environmen-
tal' -t,.,...in are imple-
me nt ing a tri-county pilot
project in Escambia, Santa
Rosa, and Okaloosa counties
using dried out oyster shells
to create reefs in the
Chc:..'.wh.tchee Bay.
Volunteers are needed


Sept. 22 starting at 9 a.m. to
help establish the second res-
toration site in Okaloosa
County, which is in Rocky
Bayou, around the corner
from the Bluewater Bay Ma-
rina. Volunteers will assist by
providing boats and trucks/
trailers, shoveling oyster
shells into buckets, loading
the buckets onto boats, driv-
ing boats to the reef site, and

then dumping the shells
overboard at the site.
This project will utilize
oyster shells recycled from
local restaurants to help re-
duce waste sent to local land-
fills. The reef created will
provide important habitat for
fish, oysters, and other
aquatic life. Adult oysters can
filter 50 gallons of water a
day, which helps to clean lo-
cal waters and reduce the ef-
fects of nutrient loading.

teers should bring sunscreen,

By BRUCE COLLIER
Allen Coulter's
Hollywoodland offers a sort of
looping tour of Hollywood in
the good old days of the big
studios. In those days, we see,
studio bosses kept full time
spin doctors on the payroll to
keep scandals out of phe pa-
pers, paying off cops ,and re-
porters to hold down'the lid
on whatever garbage there
might be that could hurt box
office business. Narcotics ad-
diction, homosexuality, adul-
tery, out-of-wedlock preg-
nancy, all could be made to
vanish, for a price.
Under that logic, only the
really stinky stuff could get
out, partly by virtue of its
own smell, and occasionally
by the efforts of investiga-
tors, public and private,
whose own motives were
usually monetary.
This is the world of Louis
Simo, played by Adrien
Brody. Simo is a very small-
time private eye, operating
out of a rundown residence
motel, snapping photos of
straying spouses for $50 a
day. Simo's marriage is
kaput, but his estranged wife
is civil enough and his kid
loves him. And, he has a cute
blond assistant/girlfriend.
This is also the world of
George Reeves. Reeves,
played by Ben Affleck, is
world-famous for playing
Superman in a hugely suc-
cessful kids' television series.
Problem is, Reeves wants to
be a serious actor. Despite
roles in Gone With the Wind
and From Here to Eternity,
Reeves still hears "It's Super-
man!" whispered all around
him, no matter who he plays.
In 1959, his career at a vir-
tual standstill, Reeves died
by a gunshot wound to the
head, in his home. There were
three other people in the
house at the time, including
his girlfriend. The verdict
was suicide.
But was it?
This is where Simo's and
Reeves' lives intersect, and
constitutes the premise of the
film. Two hours and change
later, we have been presented
with several possible death
scenarios, including the offi-
cial version, and left to decide
for ourselves.
I couldn't, though I think
Coulter favored one in par-
ticular,
Hollywoodland has all the
elements of a classic film noir
mystery movie, minus the
traditional Raymond Chan-
dler-esque voiceover narra-
tion. Otherwise, there's
chain-smoking, daytime
boozing, crooked cops, shad-
owy thugs warning the hero
off the case, and two-timin'


dames.

What's also missing is clo-
sure, but since George
Reeves' case is a real one, and
since people can get sued over
flights of imagination involv-
ing murder, Coulter wisely
lets the buyer beware.
Atmospherically, the
movie is dead on, evoking the
tawdry, ratty Los Angeles of
Farewell My Lovely and Day
of the Locust. Why anyone
would want to live in such a
place is a question that no one
ever asks, but which stands
around like the proverbial
overweight gorilla. Again, no
answer from Coulter, he just
shows it to us.
The casting is beyond re-
proach. Brody brings Oscar
credibility to Simo, a man we
have to try hard to like. Just
when you think it's about to
happen, he shows up drunk
and unannounced at his kid's
school. Still, Brody and his
life stay right in. your face.
Bob Hoskins and Diane
Lane are also excellent as a
tough studio heavyweight
and his erring wife. Hoskins
can play bad guys and good
guys with equal skill. Here he
does a bit of both.
Lane once again proves
that age and sex appeal can
coexist nicely. And she made
her acting bones long ago,
when she appeared as a teen-
ager with Lawrence Olivier
and went on to work with the
likes of Robert Duvall and
Richard Attenborough.
The real wonder of the pic-
ture is Ben Affleck, as George
Reeves. Though this is truly
an ensemble movie, Affleck
shows a whole new side of
himself in this pivotal role.
Whatever you may think
ofAffleck's acting, and I was
never all that impressed, he
lays aside the wise-guy tricks
and lets you see the charm
and the desperation, all at,
once.
Affleck plays Reeves as a
genuinely nice guy. He's
funny, warmhearted, occa-
sionally goofy, and so hungry
for the life of a leading man
that he is willing to play the
gigolo to live it, even in make-
believe.
Look for Affleck's name on
nominee lists for actor's hon-
ors next year.
Other notable perfor-
mances come from Joe Spano
as a studio "media relations"
man, Jeffrey DeMunn as
Reeves' avuncular agent,
Robin Tunney as Reeves' fi-
ancee, and Lois Smith as
Reeves' mother.
Hollywoodland won't
cheer you up, even a little, but
it's a fine piece of work, and a
treat if you like good acting.

HOMES
FROM FRONT
priced homes.
Board member Sue Grill's
main concern was related to
the scenic corridor prohibi-
tion on outdoor display of
merchandise, goods or prod-
ucts within the corridor.
Grill commented that if
this use is permitted, it will
put a "product for display
(the model homes) out on the
road,"
She was worried that this
would open the door to the
display of products such as
mattresses for sale along the
roadside on U.S. 98 and U.S.
331 in south Walton County.
Blackshear said she dis-
agreed. "When I think of a
product for sale, I think of
something to pick up and.
take home with you," she ex-
plained.
"This is a unique situa-
tion," she commented.
"This is a different animal,"
agreed Johnson. However, he
was of the opinion that the
situation of model homes on
the scenic corridor was one to
be examined by the county
attorney for the board's fu-
ture guidance, in view of the
outdoor display prohibition.
The Wallens' plans gar-
nered a favorable decision
from the board, with Grill
casting the only no vote. The
item will proceed to the Wal-
ton County Planning Com-
mission on October 12, the
next step in the approval pro-
cess.
The couple has the U.S. 331
property under lease and
plan to have their office and
the model homes at that lo-
cation for two years, the du-
ration of their lease and one-
year extension. Pat Wallens
said that they have already
had the property under lease
for a year while seeking ap-
proval for their proposal.
There was discussion of an
existing U.S. 98 business ad-
jacent to Smith's Antiques in
Miramar Beach featuring
model homes. The current
board members did not recall
this project coming before
them for review. ,
,Apparently the Wallehns',
business will be just the sec-
ond scenic corridor business
with model homes. However,
Brown said there has been an
additional application by a
business on the sceKic.corri-
dor that is to feature stick-
built model homes.
To discuss whether modifi-
cations to the scenic corridor
standards are needed to
clarify the status of model
homes, DRB members will
meet in executive session at
'4:30 p.m. preceding their Oc-
tober 5 meeting at the South
Walton County Annex. The
session will be open to the
public but no public comment
will be taken at that time.
The regular DRB meeting
will follow the executive ses-
sion.

Weight loss surgery seminar set


Dr. Jeffrey L. Lord, a spe-
cialist in laparoscopic weight
loss surgery, will present
"Weight Loss Surgery: Is It
Right for You?" on Tuesday,
Sep. 26, from 6 to 7:30 p.m.
at Sacred Heart Hospital on
the Emerald Coast in South
Walton County. The seminar
will take place in Suite 3 of
the Resource Center, which
is located in the west end of
the hospital's front parking
lot.
The only board-certified
bariatric surgeon in North-
west Florida with advanced
fellowship training in weight
loss surgery, Dr. Lord serves
as director of the Sacred
Heart Institute for Surgical
Weight Loss. He has special


expertise in minimally inva-
sive surgical weight loss pro-
cedures. Dr. Lord and the In-
stitute for Surgical Weight
Loss can perform two types
of weight loss surgery that
use small incisions.
The first is laparoscopic
gastric bypass surgery, which
involves a permanent rerout-
ing of the digestive system
that leaves patients with a'
small stomach pouch. The
surgery creates a bypass that
reroutes food around a por-
tion of the small intestine.
The second, newer ap-
proach performed at Sacred
Heart is adjustable gastric
banding. Using a laparo-
scope, the surgeon places an
inflatable band around the


stomach, creating a small
upper pouch at the top, with
restricted passage to the rest
of the stomach. This pouch
fills quickly and creates a
feeling of fulless.
Dr. Lord and his staff pro-
vide comprehensive evalua-
tion of clinically obese pa-
tients to determine their can-
didacy for these life-changing
procedures as well as exten-
sive patient/family education
to create a foundation for a
healthy lifestyle.
Reservations are recom-
mended for this free seminar.

ture needs resulting from
tourism.
County Administrator
Ronnie Bell said he would be
meeting with the county's
state legislature lobbyist and
would signal those items to
her at that meeting.
"We hear what you are
saying," District 3 Commis-
sioner Larry Jones told the
gathering.
However he asked the at-
tendees to remember that at
every BCC meeting, the room
is "filled with people wanting
things," most of which cost
money. He commented that
preparation for the county
budget begins each March
and that public input on
spending would be welcomed
each year beginning at that
time.
Jones then moved for a
quarter mill reduction in the
millage rate for the new fis-
cal year.
District 4 Commissioner
Ro Cuchens commented that
the commission is striving to
improve the quality of life in
the county by doing things
such as paving roads, pro vid-
in'g! 'stormwater -imp rove-
ments, arid offering sewer
'service to additional areas,
things that cost money.
"I think this is the tipping
point in our economy," Mead-
ows stated, adding that for
better or worse the real es-
tate and second home mar-
ket, development, tourism
and beach properties are
what makes up the local
economy.
"We can't afford to squash
that egg," she continued.
She urged for at least a
half mill cut in order to put
some money in citizens' pock-
ets and hopefully help the
economy pick back up. She
said she believed this to be


FROM FRONT

of prime importance even if
some planned county projects
had to be postponed for the
time being.
"Our number one objective
is more services at a better
cost to you," County Commis-
sion Chair Scott Brannon
told the citizens.
"You are the stakeholders,"
he added.
Brannon said he would
support the quarter mill cut
proposed by Jones with a di-
rective to Imfeld to look. at
what would be impacted by
an additional quarter mill
cut.

District 2 Commissioner
Ken Pridgen was also in fa-
vor of taking a look at how
the county could drop the
millage rate by a half mill for
the new fiscal year.
A vote on Jones' motion
was called, and it was ap-
proved unanimously.
This resulted in the tenta-
tive millage rate being set at
4.0600 mills and the result-
ing tentative budget amount
being $139,018,602, with an
operations portion of
$126,746.602.
These tentative.rates and
amounts may still be lowered
but not increased.
With the quarter-mill cut,
the total budget increase of
22.54 percent was dropped to
16.84 percent, Imfeld noted.
The proposed budget, as
tentatively set on Sept. 11,
will be posted on the county
web page, www.co.walton.
fl.us.
The final budget hearing
for fiscal year 2006-07 is
scheduled for 5:05 p.m. on
Monday, Sept. 25 at the Wal-
ton County Courthouse in
DeFuniak Springs, not at the
South Walton County Annex
as previously announced.

Einstein's Dreams at

Seaside Repertory Theatre


By BRUCE COLLIER
Three actors, numerous
characters, a nearly bare
stage, and the space-time
continuum itself are the raw
materials that constitute
David Alford and Brian
Niece's Einstein's Dreams,
adapted to the stage from
Alan Lightman's novella, now
playing at Seaside Repertory
Theatre (SRT)
The play is at once funny,
strange, and baffling, like a
book of puzzles. Like a book
of puzzles, it takes time to
absorb what's going on, and
you have to use your head
and your ineirio'v to keep up.
The.premise ?-i.'1 simple.
Albert Einstein. played by
Dustin Harding, is working
at a day job in a patent tfi cte
Evenings and nights he
spends with his friend
Michele Besso, played by
Dustin Brown. Besso does
most of the talking to
Einstein's abstracted face.
"I say 'hmm?' a lot," said
Harding, commenting on
Einstein's's habit of wander-
ing off mentally while his
friend talks. Besso worries
about his friend, wondering if
he's getting enough to eat, or
enough sleep.
Einstein, of course, is pon-
dering one of his theories,
something "not yet" ready to


type, though his assistant,
played by Shavon Wagner,
always asks at the end of the
day.
From this, we embark on
a journeyj through the not-
yet-great man's dreams. All
three actors set the stage for
a depiction'of various worlds
and dimensions, places
where the past and future do
not exist, or exist only sepa-
rately and for different
people.
In one world, people "age"
backwards, starting old and
ending as babies. In another,
people live only in the
present, with no memories of
the time before. One of the
perks of this world is that
for married couples, "every
night is their wedding night."
A group of people, con-
vinced that living at high al-
titudes prolongs life, build
homes on stilts, atop the tall-
est peaks.
All this is done on a nearly
empty stage, using chairs, a
table, and a box. A screen is
fixed in the middle, on which
are projected photos and
other images. There are no
hand props. Costumes, by
Kat Fresh, are very simple.
In addition to recounting
other worlds, the play looks
at various human situations
from different perspectives. A


short film, made for this pro-
duction, tells the story of a
happy/unhappy love affair,
told three ways, each begin-
ning with a man observing a
woman from his balcony.
Music and sound effects,
including spoken comments
by Einstein, frame the action.
The acting is uniformly
good, with emphasis on
storytelling and both physical
and vocal ensemble work.
Harding and Brown were
both seen in this past
summer's production of Joe
Orton's Loot at SRT. Both
have made a smooth transi-
tion from Orton's baroque
black-humored style to the
deceptively simple demandsrd
of this script.
Wagner, who stage man-
aged Loot, has recently fin-
ished a stint doing children's
theater for SRT. Wagner has
a great sense of playfulness,
and an expressive face that
serves her well, particularly
in the scene when she
"youthens" from an old
woman to a curled-up infant.
Director Craige Hoover
has given his actors the en-
tire stage to play on, lacing
music and visuals through-
out. Thd direction is simple,
allowing the actors to convey
this tricky piece as straight-
forwardly as possible. This
is a show that requires atten-
tion, and thought. It may not
be to everyone's taste, but it
is worth a sip to find out.
Einstein's Dreams runs
Wednesday, Sept. 13 through
Saturday Sept. 16, at the
SRT Meeting Hall Theatre.
All performances are at 7:30
p.m. For ticket information,
call 231-3033.

Music and Theater around the South


After five years, the
nation still ponders
the reasons behind
the attacks on
American soil. Sept.
11, 2001 marked a
turning point for not
only the nation and
its victims, but also
brought about a
sense of patriotism
that this country
still celebrates.

It is hard to believe that
five years have gone by since
the attacks on the World
Trade Center and the Penta-
gon, as well as the downed
airliners in Pennsylvania,
which took the lives of thou-
sands of people. It was a day
that will never be forgotten
and is still considered the
worst attack ever made on
American soil.
With all the special re-
ports, maderfor-television
movies and talk shows this
past week. it was certain that
America has not forgotten
what happened and refuses
to let it be forgotten. It is a
part of American history that
we all actually watched un-
fold. ::
Whether you are for or
against the Iraq war, or take
an interest in current events
in the, Middle East, when the
planes hit the towers and
other structures on Sept. 11,
2001, you were angry.
Americans, democrat or re-
publican, stood united in
their hatred and contempt
for those who did this to our
nation.
Interestingly, the art
world began to lend a help-
ing hand to a distraught and
confused nation. Artistic cre-
ations of all sorts could be
seen, read and heard from all
parts of the country.
I distinctly remember local
resident Sue Parsonnet, who
had her car turned into a
painted American flag by lo-
cal artists Billie Gaffrey. She
was one of many in this area
that showed her respect for
her country, while also
mourning the loss of thou-
sands.
Across yards, on cars,
hanging from buildings, used


as decorations around store
fronts, adorning clothes and
just about anywhere else you
could stick or hang one, an
American flag could be seen.
For more than a year, it
looked like the nation was
celebrating the Fourth of
July non-stop. It was our way
of showing and proving that
America was not going away.
From 2003 on, fewer and
fewer signs of that day can
be found unless one looks re-
ally hard. Now considered
history and not a' current
event, the attacks of 9/11
have changed the way we live
our daily lives. We no longer
give peace and freedom the
cold shoulder, but embrace it
and are fighting to keep it.
Marking the five year an-
niversary once again has
Americans clamoring to hang
up their American flags, buy
anything that has 9/11 on it
and make sure everyone
knows their patriotism.
If you remember from
2001, there was a nationwide
rush on red, white and blue
material, flags, pins, clothes,
ribbon, markers and even au-
tomobiles.
There was a true surge of
patriotism, one that has
managed to last,, at least
somewhat, into 2006.
America seemed to need a
wake-up call. That is exactly
what we all got.
Since that fateful day in
2001, the nation.has faced
other battles including the
Iraq War, the shakeup of the
Middle East and even the
natural destruction of Hurri-
cane Katrina. With all of
these tragedies, stories,
paintings, carvings, movies
and music have been pro-
duced in memory of those
people and places that we
lost.
It is said that tragedy
brings out the creativity of
people and makes them re-
alize what they possess deep
inside and can only express
through creative means.
America should have more
artistic people today than it
has active military.
Both are made up of dedi-
cated men and women and
both are vital attributes to
our society no matter what
state the country is in or
faces,
Remember 9/11 all year
long!!
