Residents want laces tied


around Shoemaker Drive project


By Leigh Strickland
Though many agree that
growth and progress are
good, they are likely to feel
differently when such
things threaten to change
their own neighborhood.
The city of DeFuniak
Springs appears in many.
ways poised for such growth
and change. Proposed
commercial ahd residential
development sites are
scattered throughout the city
and these changes will
affect neighboring residents.
One proposed develop-
ment came before the city
council in recent months in
the form of a. zoning
change request. The' prop-
erty, 10 acres located on
Shoemaker Drive, was zoned
for agricultural use. The
property owner planned to
build townhouses on the
property and so requested a
change to the R-2'residential
zoning classification. That


would allow for up to 16 resi-
dential units per acre, up to
160 units on the Shoemaker
Drive property.
Adjacent property owners
and other neighbors at-
tended council meetings to
*speak in opposition to the
zone change and resulting
development.
Neighbor Don Counts said
at one meeting that the
change "will have a profound
and irreversible effect on the
neighborhood." Others ech-
oed Count's sentiments.
In an effort to ease the
fears of the neighborhood, de-
veloper Wayne Jacobs and
the city's building
and planning department
worked out a developer's
agreement that would limit
growth on the property to
nine units per acre, or a to-
tal of 90 units.
However, residents are
once again concerned about
the property and the future


of the neighborhood because
there is now a "For Sale" sign
on the property.
In an email to the Herald,
neighbor John Ward wrote,
"We asked that a limit be
placed on the property and if
it were to be sold, the prop-
erty would revert to agricul-
tural zoning. A developer's
agreement was signed but
we don't know what was in-
cluded. Now, the developer
has not started to build, but
instead placed a "For Sale"
sign on the property. Can you
please tell me what the city
intends to do?"
In response, Larry Laird,
director of building and plan-
ning for the city, said, "The
city council has to determine
the best use of the property.
We did receive some peti-
tions, letters. There was some
opposition. [The council]
spoke and they made a deci-,
sion."
James Huffman is a mem-


ber of the DeFuniak Springs
City Council and was part of
the unanimous vote to
approve the rezoning of the
property.
In response to Ward's con-
cerns, Huffman said, "As
far as I know, there was a
developer's agreement that
transfers as to ownership. We
can't stop a person from sell-
ing his property. Zoning was
not contingent on his being
the owner."
Laird said, "It has been
brought }to our attention
that the property is for sale.
[However], the developer's
agreement goes with the
property and it'l.1l go to
the next developer. If they
sell it, the buyer will be held
to the same restrictions. We
can't stop people from selling
property."

By Ben Grafton
The Freeport Council
meeting of September 12,
2006 opened with the first
reading of the City's pro-
posed budget for thl 2006-
2007 fiscal year. The total of
proposed expenditures for
the general fund and the en-
terprise fund is projected to
be $3,316,758. The reading
was approved by the council
and the second reading was
scheduled for the council
meeting of September 26.

Engineer Tony Peters re-
ported that progress was
made at the second traffic in-
frastructure meeting with
the Walton County planning
staff. City and county staffs
have agreed to some joint
recommendations about how
traffic infrastructure calcu-
lations will be made. A meet-
ing is being scheduled to get

Robbins seeks

commission

district 2 seat

James Robbins is the
Democratic candidate for the
District 2 seat on the Walton
County Commission.
Robbins, and his wife Jane,
have lived in Walton County
for the past 36 years. ;
Robbins currently owns
and operates a hydraulic re-
pair business in Paxton,
Florida, where he interacts
with the people of Walton
County and the nation'on a
daily basis. If elected,
Robbins says he has employ-
ees who are trained to oper-
ate his business and that he
will be available full-time to
take care of County business
and look after the needs of
the people of Walton County.
Robbins says that he will be
available to all the people of
Walton County all the time,
regardless of political party
affiliation or economic status.
"To me, each person in this
County is equally important
and when the election is over,
it will be my honor and privi-
lege to serve all the people of
this County," he said.


Florida Department of
Transportation.
Peters said that a new
ten- inch well will be re-
quired to meet potable water
demand for users between
Portland and the North Bay
water system in Choctaw
Beach. He said that a private
contractor will agree to fi-
nance $100,000 of the instal-
lation cost which is expected
to be approximately
$250,000.
Mayor Mickey Marse com-
mented that this well would
help supply water for the
North Bay system in the
event of an emergency
thereby reducing the depen-
dence on the expensive emer-
gency water supply agree-
,mehnt with Okaloosa County.
The council-approved a mo-
tion to pursue development
of this well and a 300,000-
gallon tank at the well site.

Robbins is also retired
from the oil drilling business.
While working in that busi-
ness, Robbins traveled to oil
producing countries all over
the world. He is acutely
aware of the energy problems
faced by this country and the
impact high oil and gasoline
"prices have on the people of
Walton County and the local
,.conomy. Robbins believes
his experience in the oil drill-
ing business writing budgets,
reviewing contracts, and su-
pervising daily operations
will be of substantial benefit
in performing the duties of a

of an ordinance for the pro-
posed Magnolia Creek De-
velopment Dist rict was pre-,
sented. This will provide in-
frastructure funding for the

The council approved a mo-
tion for adoption.
Councilman Charlie
Simmons asked for a motion
to approve a three-year plan
for the Freeport Volunteer
Fire Department that would
provide for merging the
Freeport Department into
the Walton County system.
The plan will employ Free-
port firefighters provided
they become fully trained by
the end of the three-year pe-
riod. The city will provide
some financial support dur-
ing the transition.

have been received for fi-
nancing construction of the
new City Hall. T-e bid made

MEMBERS OF RURITAN CLUB gather for monument dedication in honor of charter members.


Ruritans honor charter members


The Paxton Ruritan Club
recently honored their char-
ter members by placing a
monument in their honor at
the front of the Paxton Town
Hall entrance.
Guest speaker, John E.
Baldwin, an active Ruritan
member and the only living
charter member, families of
the charter members, Paxton
Mayor. Wanda Smith, Town
Council members and local
dignitaries were present for
the unveiling.
The Paxton Ruritan Club
was chartered in Aug., 1952.
John Baldwin was instru-
mental in starting the club


from information he received
at a conference he attended
as an agriculture teacher.
The local area was just get-
ting into farming because the
wood mills were drying up.
They needed something to
pull the community together
and help build up the area. A
few adult leaders were
emerging and a club would
help harness the leadership
and bring closeness to the
community. A total of twenty
five men agreed, and the
Paxton Ruritan Club was
chartered.
The club originally met in
the Paxton school lunch

room. The men were looking
for a way to generate money
for projects when they found
out that a principality could
receive revenue from the sale
of cigarettes. They decided
that they should make the
area a town.
The Town of Paxton was in-
corporated by a Legislative
Act on July 2, 1953. The men
acquired land and started the
process of getting a building
for a town hall. This building
would be used as the town
hall, for health services,
meetings, and community
services for Paxton and the
surrounding area. The town
fathers worked together and
established recreation park,
cemetery, helped fund special
education events, sponsored
students to state and na-
tional FFA conferences, and
gave scholarships to OWJC.
In the past the club has
honored teachers, students
and community leaders for
their contributions to the
community.
In 1986 the Paxton Heri-
tage Festival began to edu-
cate children /students on
their heritage through dem-
onstrators and exhibits.
The Paxton Rutarian Club
over the years has worked
with the community to im-
prove facilities and beautify
the town.
Some of the projects in re-
cent memory include pur-
chasing a TV, VCR, coffee
* brewer and ice maker for the'
town iall. Other projects in-
cluded acquiring a state for-
estry grant to purchase,
plant, irrigate and maintain
51 native trees, purchasing
and maintaining the wel-
come signs coming into
Paxton from the north and
south town limits, and pur-
chasing the Gladys Milton
Library sign for the
Flowersview community. In
recent years they have
sponsored a team to the
American Cancer Society
Relay for Life event in DeFu-
niak Springs, brought a mu-
seum-quality Bible exhibit to
the area, hosted the Farm/

Walton County School

Board approves budget, bids


By PATRICK CASEY
The Walton County
School Board met on Monday,
September 18, at the Tivoli
Administrative Complex to
discuss a variety of items in-
cluding project bids and the
approval of the yearly school
budget.
Wayne Miller, Supervisor
of Administration and Opera-
tions, announced the award-
ing of bids for a pair of
projects the board had ap-
proved at the last meeting.
Floridian Construction
and Development Company
was awarded the bid for early
site work and building a
bridge for the new Mossy
Head School. The company
submitted the low bid for the
project at $1,333,390.
Lawrence Commercial
Systems will furnish and in-
stall covered walkways for
bus loading at Paxton High
School. The company submit-
ted a bid of $36,000 for the
project.
Miller also discussed the
district's five-year plan with


the board, which is revised
every year. Budgeted items
for 2006-07 include $4.2 mil-
lion to finish the Paxton gym-
nasium, $16.2 for the Mossy
Head school and $12.7 for the
construction of a new Walton
High School.
Chief Financial Officer
Jim McCall presented the
Walton County School Board
with the 2006-07 operating
budget as required by law.
McCall, who is in his twenty-
third year as C.F.O., ex-
plained to the public and
board members the tentative
millage rate and budget and
answered questions during
the public hearing.
Bonnie McQuiston of the
Walton County Taxpayers As-
sociation asked the board to
carefully consider the budget
they were about to vote for
and pointed out that the rev-
enues collected are likely to
drop at some point in the near
future with the real estate
market slowing in the area
and property values likely to
slump.

Anderson explained that the
class size amendment re-
quired new construction to
meet the class size agenda
and that new facilities were
being built to meet this re-
quirement through capital
projects.
After 75 minutes of discus-
sion, the board ratified the
budget by a 4-1 vote with
Donnie Richardson casting
the lone dissenting vote. The
total budget for the fiscal year

uled meeting of the Walton

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


PERSONAL COMMENTS

EDITOR'S COMMENT: BY RON KELLEY




Calling All Thespians


Walton County's favorite folklife play is set to raise its
curtain in less than two months. Word from director
Jeremiah Campbell is that the production still needs a few
more actors. There are still several male roles available. As
someone who has performed in Grit & Grace, I can tell you
that being onstage as part of the company is an experience
you should not deny yourself.

Grit & Grace is living history, retold before our very eyes.
Not only are the stories interesting and fun, the people you'll
meet and the friends you'll make will enrich your life. Then
there is the applause. It's a great feeling to know that you've
been a part of something special, something one-of-a-kind
and that people truly appreciate your efforts.
Friends, I urge you, if you've always wanted to try your
hand at being on stage, even in a small part, this is a golden
opportunity. The actors, singers and dancers are all volun-
teers. There are no. Hollywood-types and the cast tends to
be more like a large family. Further, since they really need
several more men for important parts big and small you'll
truly be welcomed with open arms. To find out more, call me
at the Herald office, contact any G&G member or stop by
the Freeport High School one night this week or next and
join in. They'd love to see you! .
This year's production is called "Schemes, Scandals and
Shenanigans" and should fun for the cast an'd theater-goers,
too.
Actually, I never cease to be amazed at the talented people

E O O TO "R


Editor,
Last week, a young man received a ticket for walking in
the road.on Quebec Avenue. It is important for me to iden-
tify the street so readers are aware this incident happened
in the black community.
I find it very interesting that I have walked up and down
that road for 30 years and I have never been stopped by the
numerous officers who frequent that road during the eve-
nings. Maybe because I'm not a black male, or the fact that,
if I did get a ticket, I would be writing a letter such as this.
I'm not sure where we are supposed to walk because there
aren't any sidewalks on Quebec Avenue.
For the life of me, I can't understand why an officer would
take the time to write a $71 ticket for a walking pedestrian.
Maybe because crime is down, and there isn't enough work
for law enforcement, which would be wonderful. However, I
don't believe that's the case.
It could be that crack cocaier-ftas bee. eliminated from
Walton County's racial and ethnic communities, Again highly
unlikely, since traffickers that bring drugs into the black
community are never arrested, because that would affect
the economic growth for some.
If there is a rationale for giving tickets to walking pedes-
trians, please enlighten me.

Editor,
Faith Works Ministry will close October 1, 2006. From
August 1, 2005, we have helped many refuges from Louisi-
ana and Mississippi due to Katrina, who came to us for help.
The community really came forward with their help and
showed the love of Jesus Christ by giving clothes, shelter,
food, monitary and most of all, comfort.
Faith Works is honored to have helped two families in
DeFuniak Springs that lost everything from house fires. The
children were the first and main consideration. A stuffed
animal did wonders for the children. The reward was a bless-
ing to see the children smile. FWM had so many donations
that it was able to give to ARC, PSC, and the local nursing
home. These organizations still need clothes and prayers
and also fellowshipping. We wish to give a special thanks to
Lind a d~tl~b her wonderful contributions and all her help
,and all others for, theilihelp andi critnbutions. .'.... : .,

Editor,
Israel is a small piece of property as far as nations go,
about the size of the Florida Panhandle, but one diamond is
worth more than a truck load of dirt, and the value of that
little piece of property is worth many struggles to the de-
scendants of Abraham, Issac and Jacob. It is the land God
promised to Abraham over 3,500 years ago. Strangely,
Abraham was born 1,948 years after Adam, and Israel be-
came a nation for the second time 1,948 years after the
Messiah Jesus was borr. Not everyone rejoiced on that won-
derful day, while the Jews danced in the streets of Israel.
Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Iraq, Saudi Arabia and Egypt at-
tacked the small country. The Secretary General of the Arab
League said "This will be a war of extermination, and a mo-
nientous massacre..."
In the book of Zechariah in the 12th Chapter, God says He
would make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people,
and that He would seek to destroy all the nations that come
to fight against Jerusalem.
They came to fight all right, and some of them escaped
back to their own land alive. There are millions of followers


Dear Editor

This is regarding ATV's on unpaved county roads with a
posted speed limit of less than 35 mph. I do not mind some-
one riding an ATV on the dirt road in front of my house if
they drive responsibly. However, I have only once or twice
out of hundreds of times, seen someone driving an ATV re-
sponsibly.
The children, teenagers, and young adults who drive their
ATV's on the dirt roads in our community, drive faster than
the cars who travel on it, use it for a racetrack, see how
many circles they can turn in the smallest radius, and if it
is dry, they cover the entire neighborhood with dust. They
do not use the road as it was intended to be used, but as a
playground. They turn hard packed clay into dusty sand
and when it rains, the clay sand washes down the road,
across the highway and into a culvert wash that probably
drains eventually into a branch. When it rains, the road is
so bad you have'clay all over your vehicle and you slide
around in it just trying to get to your house.
These ATV's do not carry liability insurance in case they
hurt someone or destroy: property, they do not carry tags
and some are driven by children (with parental consent)
not old enough to have a driver's license. It is very hard to
get law enforcement to come out when you report ATV prob-
lems when the law is being broken. They cannot arrest any
driver without seeing the ATV on the road, even when they
can see the tracks going right back to the owner's house and
see the destruction of the roadway.
One deputy went to a house and spoke with the parents
and this particular rider now rides mostly on his property.
Most of the time when you call the law, the four-wheelers
get parked (maybe they have scanners or know someone in
the Sheriff's Department) and the neighborhood goes back
to normal.
Walton County can opt out of this law if they vote to do so.
If Walton County allows these ATV's on our roadways le-
gally, they should have to be insured, and have the same
laws and taxes that apply to other legal vehicles. Will the
Sheriff's Department make daily trips down the muddy or
dusty clay road that I live on? Will they set up radar on a
very small dirt road? I don't think so. Will Walton County
pave the dirt road I live qn so it will be off limits to ATVs?
All Walton County residents affected by this new Florida
law should voice your opinion to your county commissioner.

of Mohammed though, and they don't learn to quickly not to
mess with Israel. When they are not in outright war they
are shooting missiles at Israel or sending some child to be a
suicide bomber at some Israeli restaurant, club, bus or wed-
ding.
But Israel remains a land of promise, God said He would
bring the scattered People of Israel back to their land, and
that He would make the land inhabited, and the wilderness
blossom like a rose. It is all coming true, over five million
Jewish people are living in the land Jesus walked and taught
in. A wealth of fruits, nuts and vegetables grow in the land
that was barren and waste for centuries. The Bible says re-
joice with Jerusalem all you who love her. It also says, pray
for the peace of Jerusalem, they shall prosper who love thee.
Yes, I rejoice with Jerusalem, and pray for her peace, and
hope to be there to smell the flowers and eat the fruits of
the land. To plant in its fields and play in its parks, I will
too, I promise.

How Does New


Teelmology


Impact our


Elections?


We've seen more change in the last six (6)
years in the election process than we've
seen in the 230 years before that.


Viruses can infect computer software and
alter a voter's ballot without being detected.
(Princeton University Diebold Study)
*

New machines are vulnerable and
unreliable. Leon County's Supervisor of
Elections in a test run found that a hacker
could violate his system. (Ion Sancho)


We have given responsibility for the
outcome of the elections to private software
vendors. Public officials who question the
equipment are told to call the software
hotline. (Miami Herald)


Voter-verified paper ballot or receipt
The State of Florida has made it illegal to
use a paper ballot for a re-count. Whatever is on
the computer is the only count the state-will
accept. With a printed receipt, voters can audit
their OWN votes against their recorded ballot.


Mandatory audit after every election
Walton County does not perform an audit
after ANY election. The only way to verify the
results tallied by the computer is a paper audit.
We must have mandatory audits.

Henninger discusses


growth in Freeport


According to Latilda
Henninger, the first city plan-
ner for Freeport, the reason
Freeport incorporated many
years ago. was to get a fire
truck. Just as they were then,
"the citizens are tenacious
and determined."
Henninger voiced her opin-
ions at a recent Rotary Club
meeting in DeFuniak
Springs.
Henninger said the citi-
zens, council members, and
the mayor feel strongly about
environmental and zoning is-
sues in their community.
Hence, the preservation of
trees is very important to
everyone. With developments
planned for Freeport, the
population could increase by
10,000 over the next 10
years.
Henninger said the newest
verbiage isn't "quality of life"
but "quality of place" and ba-
sically means that when you
take care of your place, the
quality of life follows.'
The top three issues for
Freeport are to four-lane
Hwy. 331, set aside money
from developers for road im-
provements/maintenance
and to adopt different desig-
nations for the roads in
Freeport. She said this pro-


cess will take time and effort
but will be well worth the ef-
fort. Henninger said she is
excited about the opportunity
to assist the citizens of
Freeport in shaping their
destiny.


The Rotary Club meets
each Wednesday at noon at
McLain's Steak House. "Visi-
tors and prospective mem-
bers are welcome", said Joyce
Szilvasy, spokesperson for
the Rotary Club.


LATILDA HENNINGER, City Planner for Freeport, spoke
to DFS Rotarians at a recent luncheon.

DJJ continues funding


COPE's ASAP Program


The Florida Department of
Juvenile Justice awarded the
COPE Center $35,000 to con-
tinue the Adolescent Sub-
stance Abuse Prevention Pro-
gram (ASAP) at the Walton
Career Development Center.
"This program is part of a
complete continuum of pre-
vention services for the
school system, which begins
in elementary school," said
Bryan Callahan, Director of
Prevention Services at COPE
Center.
The ASAP program is a
Level II prevention program,
designed to reduce risk fac-
tors by exposing youth to the
consequences of substance


abuse, while teaching anger
management skills and en-
couraging academic success.
ASAP also welcomes youth
to attend an after-school
group where teens can safely
talk about their issues and
learn the skills that will help
them become successful
adults.
The primary goals of the
ASAP program are to help
and encourage youth to be
successful in school; reduce
interpersonal alienation; and
reduce the early use of alco-
hol, cigarettes and drugs.
This is accomplished by
teaching youth the hazards
of substance abuse, self-con-
trol and emotional expres-


sion, while creating a sense
of community used to reduce
the chance that youth will
become involved with the.ju-
venile justice system.
ASAP's school-based cur-
riculum, Project Toward No
Drug Abuse (TND), is highly
interactive and designed to
help youth resist substance
abuse.

TND consists of twelve 40
- 50 minute lessons that in-
clude motivational activities,
social skills training, and de-
cision making components
that are delivered through
group discussions, games,
role-playing exercise, videos,
and student exercises.


Red Bay CC to host meeting


The Red Bay Community
Center on SR- 81 in Walton
County will host a commu-
nity meeting Thursday, Sept.
21 at 7 p.m.
On hand will be District 1
County Commissioner Scott
,Brannon, Walton Fire Man-
ager Eddie Rivers, and Wal-
ton Parks and Recreation rep
Durell Campbell to discuss
the proposed new Red Bay
Fire station, community park
and recreational facility for


the area.
According to Walton Emer-
gency Response Director Ed
Baltzley, plans include a
multi-purpose room that can
be used for training or com-
munity gatherings, and a
safe room for emergency per-
sonnel to weather out storms
on site for rapid response af-
ter a storm event. It is also
intended to include fitness
and recreational amenities to
make the facility a real asset


to the community.
Red Bay's fire station is a
part of the Walton Fire Res-
cue organization, and is
manned full time by
firefighter/paramedics.
When completed, the de-
sign for this complex may be
replicated at other fire res-
cue sites around the county..

The public is invited to at-
tend and view the prelimi-
nary plans.

Property Insurance Reform Committee holds third meeting in capital


By BRUCE COLLIER
The governor's specially-
appointed Property and Ca-
sualty Insurance Reform
Committee held its third
meeting in Tallahassee on
Sept. 7. The all-day meeting
was chaired by Lt. Governor
Tonu Jennings.
The committee was formed
in June by Executive Order
06-150. The committee will
exist until May 15 of 2007.,
The stated purpose of the
committee is to "be a forum
to discuss and make recom-
mendations to the Governor,
President of the Senate, and
Speaker of the House of Rep-
resentatives, at a minimum,"
on improving competition'
and creating incentives for
private insurance and rein-
surance policy writing for
commercial, residential, mo-
bile and manufactured homes,
condos and apartments; and
government property.
The committee has also
been asked to recommend
" ways to encourage hazard
mitigation, improve under-
writing practices, "depopu-
late" Citizens Property Insur-
ance Corporation (Citizens),
reduce exposure of the
Florida Hurricane Catastro-
phe (CAT) Fund through pri-
vate alternatives, influence
national catastrophe risk
management planning, and
evaluate the preliminary 're-
sults of S.B. 1980 regarding
a capital buildup program,

mitigation, private insurance
competition and capacity, and
Citizens' rate changes and ac-
tuarial soundness.
The committee is made up
of elected representatives,
experts, and a technical ad-
visory committee.
The agenda began with a
discussion of mitigation and
premium discounts. Reports
were submitted on, insurance
premium discounts, which
ranged from five percent to 42
percent, with an average of 15
to 25 percent. Also reported
were credits given for retro-
fitting homes with, for ex-
ample, high-impact glass.
Concerning processing of
claims, there was discussion
on standardization of forms,
time 'certainty on the recog-
nition of inspection reports by
carriers, education of insur-
ance agents, and "the need for
more acceptance of credits for
high-impact glass."
Mitigation of damage for
commercial structures was
also discussed. The commit-
tee discussed the need to edu-
cate the business sector on
the relationship between spe-
cific structure losses from
hurricanes and varied build-
ing types.
The Florida building code's
effectiveness, as well as its
local enforcement, was also a
topic, in light of Florida's con-
tinuing growth and building
expansion:.
A series of recommenda-
tions were drafted, emphasiz-
ing a commitment to the

state's mitigation program,
administered by the Depart-
ment of Financial Services.
The recommendations in-
cluded the factoring of miti-
gation measures into virtu-
ally evqry aspect of insgr-
ance. This ranges from prop-
erty owrier and agent educa-
tion to recalibration ofhurri-
cane models, as well as uni-
formity of inspection forms
and the relationship between
uniform mitigation credits
and market competition.
r The committee also recom-
mended state funded re-
search on mitigation for com-
mercial structures; with an
bye toward possibly revamp-
ing state commercial building
codes.
Recommendations regard-
ing he CAT Fund were also
discussed and made. Among
them was that CAT Fund cov-
erage rates "should be in-
creased to near market rate,'"
and that the federal govern-
ment should consider creat-
ing its own CAT Fund to ad-
dress high level catastrophic
events.. .
SOther items discussed in-
cluded raising the upper
level of the CAT Fund, expan-
sion of the CAT Fund assess-
ment method, creation'of ad-
ditional avenues of revenue to
.build up the CAT Fund re-
serves, expansion of the fund
to commercial policies, and
keeping policy and lawmak-
ers informed of all potential

The planning commission
voted unanimously to recom-
mend denial, and county
planning staff then held a
number of meetings with
neighbors in an attempt to
work through problems.
Martinez" assessment on
Sept. 12 was that "' a lot of
concerns" still existed. He
then recommended changing
the location. Aside from the
neighborhood opposition, he
outlined advantages with the
proposed site north of DeFu-
niak Springs, including, the
availability of water and
sewer service, the parcel's
basically central location in
the county, arid the possibil-
ity of-assistance from inmates
with animal shelter opera-
tions.
Speaking for the neigh-
bors, Mark Madamba
thanked the commissioners
for their decision on, the facil-
ity, calling it a "win-win",
County Administrator
Ronnie Bell volunteered to
speak with Sam Shine on the


possibility of the county re-
taining the .Rock Hill Road
parcel, with the request that
it be used 'for recreation.
Madamba enthusiastically
endorsed that course of ac-
tion,
Walton County owns a 10-
acre parcel and a 20-acre par-
cel in the area of the new jail
arid correctional facility.
Martinez 'advised that staff
would evaluate both as pos-
sible animal shelter sites and
return with a' recommenda-
tion. He said the 20-acre par-
Sel is almost ,totally sur-
rounded by county-owned
land but that there are some
mobile homes in the vicinity
of the 10-acre parcel.
The change of locatiotniwill
necessitate restarting the re-.
view and approval process for
the facility, and part of that
procedure will be' notification
of neighboring property own-
ers. District 5 Commissioner
Cindy'Meaddws urged staff to
"make sure to talk to talk
with the neighbors there" be-.
fore proceeding with plans for
a new location.

Paxton
looks
at future

land
planning

issues
By BRUCE COLLIER
The Paxton Town Council
held its regular monthly
meeting on Sept. 12 at the
town hall.
Council members attend-
ing were Bobby. Kemp,
Tommy Mhthis, Jenice
Armstrong and Joe Melton.
Ann Sexton did not attend.
Mayor Wanda Smith at-
tended, as did council mem-
ber-elect Bill McRae. McRae
will fill the seat vacated by
outgoing member Mathis.
In a recent council election,
McRae won a seat, and
Melton and Sexton were each
re-elected. The council vali-
dated and signed the official
vote tallies and results.
The council granted utility
fee waiver requests from
three applicants.
Also granted was a request
from a Walton High School
student that the week of Oct.
1 be designated "National 4H
Week" in Paxton.
The student offered a num-
ber of examples of the 4H
Club's contribution to local
and countywide education
and quality of life, including
the Tropicana speech contest,
the Teen Council, services for
veterans, and participation in
the Flutterby festival.
City attorney Loriane
Bytell advised the council
that it now has the option to
raise the utility tax cap from
existing 6 percent to 10 per-
cent. The council declined to
make any changes from the
existing cap.
The council also agreed to
accept a bid from Peters Mu-
nicipal to provide engineer-
ing services under a Hurri-
cane Dennis recovery'grant.
A Sept. 19 date was agreed
upon for a budget workshop
to review and work on the
town's budget.
Mayor Smith reported that
an accounting firm had sub-
mitted a proposal to perform
an audit, which was accepted
by the council.
Bytell also reported that in
order to resolve a reported
water pressure problem by a
local resident, the council
had to authorize readings of
the resident's water pressure
at different times of the day.
This was granted.
Bytell suggested that some.
measures needed to be taken
to address the number of
planning issues and requests
that would be increasing in
the near future.
A meeting was proposed
with someone qualified to
handle these issues for the
town. Mathis also suggested
that Paxton begin looking for
a city manager.
Also discussed was the
progress on the town's ball
field, including the need for
grass around the concession
area and replacement of a
section of fence.
This was Mathis' last
meeting, and 'he requested
that the council approve use
of a city vehicle to transport
Paxton firefighters to a

Traffic accident with injuries on 1-10

tiple injuries.


ROBBINS

sioner.
Robbins says that he is con-
cerned about the future of the
primarily one dimensional
tourism based economy of
Walton County. He stated
that, We need to diversify
the economy in Walton
County.' High gasoline prices
and hurricane damage, ei-
ther together or separately,
can cause a significant reduc-
tion in revenue for Walton
County. Presently, Walton
County can make up for the
loss of tourism related rev-
enue in two ways. It can ei-
ther raise taxes on its citizens
or it can reduce services to its
citizens. Both are unaccept-
able to me."

Robbins further stated that
"I believe that our beaches
should be restored and main-
tained in a pristine condition.
Doing so benefits the people
of Walton County and serves
as a continuing tourist attrac-
tion. But I also believe that
the Walton County Commis-
sion should be actively in-
volved in recruiting industry
for Walton County that is not
dependent on tourism. Diver-
sification of Walton County's
revenue base with non-tour-
ism related industry would
make it less susceptible to
hurricanes and high gasoline


ized control systems. He vol-
unteered to work in Walton
County elections from 1998-
2003 with his wife Melissa,
before taking office in 2003.
Beasley is a state-certified
Supervisor of Elections, serv-
ing in his second-term on the
State Board of Directors with
the Florida State Association
of Supervisors of Elections in
District 1. He is a lifelong
member of the First United
Methodist Church of DFS
where he serves on the Ad-
ministrative Board, Board of
Trustees, Pastor Parish Rela-
tions Committee and a mem-
ber of the Busy Men's Sunday
School Class. He is a mem-
ber of the Kiwanis Club, Wal-
ton County Chamber of Com-
merce, Relay for Life sponsor,
and is active in many other
community events and orga-
nizations.
"Elections have gone
through many changes since
the 2000 election. The most
important issue with any
election is security, following
strict State guidelines to pre-
vent fraud, insuring every
valid vote is counted and ac-
counted for with secrecy for
the voters that cast ballots.
All voting equipment is
State-certified, protected
with passwords and encryp-
tion keys to prevent tamper-
ing, thoroughly tested with
in-house and public logic and
accuracy testing and set for
election with no votes re-
corded before elections.
Tamper proof and uniquely
numbered seals are applied
to insure security, before, dur-
ing, and after elections.
All voting equipment has
real-time auditing logs pro-
viding a record of activities
and events relevant to initial-
ization of election software
and hardware, identification
of files containing election
parameters, initialization of
the tabulation process, pro-

prices. Economic diversifica-
tion is a 'win win' situation.
More jobs would be available
for the people of Walton
County and Walton County
would have a more stable and
resilient revenue base."
Robbins states that he is
concerned about wasteful
spending and taxes in Walton
County. He states that, "If
elected, I plan to use my ex-
perience in the private sector
budgeting process to carefully
scrutinize each item in pro-
posed budgets or proposed
taxes with a two-part test.
The first part of the test is to
see if the proposed expendi-
ture or tax is truly needed.
The second part of the test is
to see if there is any waste in
the proposed expenditure or
tax. If the proposed expendi-
ture or tax fails either part of
the test, then I, will not vote
to approve it."
Walton County's jail situa-
tion is also a matter of con-
cern to Robbins. His main
concerns are that the jail be
operated in an economical
and professional manner and
that it not be the subject of
political infighting. Robbins
states that, "I don't have any
preconceived ideas about the
operation of the jail. I am
open to carefully studying all
avenues, including the feasi-


FROM FRONT

cessing of voted ballots, and
the termination of the tabu-
lation process.
Walton County currently
exceeds the State's security
standards to ensure safe, se-
cure and accurate elections."
Beasley says, "It is truly an
honor to serve as your current
Supervisor of Elections. In
the upcoming general elec-
tion, I would greatly appreci-
ate your consideration and
vote to keep working hard for
problem free elections in Wal-
ton County. Experience,
knowledge, organizational
skills are vital for accurate
and secure elections. I have
the training, years of experi-
ence, and dedication required
for this job. It takes a mas-
sive team effort for elections
to run smoothly. I can't say
enough about the tremen-
dous job our staff, poll work-
ers, canvassing board and the
voters have done to make this
possible in Walton County.
As Supervisor of Elections,
I will promise to never com-


8:11am on Sept. 19, in the
eastbound lanes of I-10 at
mile marker 92. Reports also
indicated that someone was
severely injured and needed
immediate assistance. Wal-
ton County Fire & Rescue
and Florida Highway Patrol
(FHP) was also notified and
dispatched.
According to a release
from Walton County Sheriff's
Office (WCSO) it appears
that the driver of a green
Chevy Silverado pickup, trav-
eling eastbound, lost control
of the pickup, slid sideways,
and crashed into several trees
in the median of the high-


bility of contracting the op-
eration of the jail out to a pri-
vate company. Before con-
tracting with a private com-
pany, I would have to be sat-
isfied that it niet the highest
of professional standards and
that it would be in Walton
County's best interest from
an economic standpoint."
Roads in Walton County
are also a matter of great con-
cern to Robbins. He said
"Walton County cannot con-
tinue to grow and attract in-
dustry if we don't have ad-
equate infrastructure. Every-
thing reasonably possible at
the county level needs to be
done to see that Highway 331
is four-laned. If we can't get
it done all at one time, then
get what we can, starting at
the south end of 331 and
move north as funding be-
comes available. Our rural
road system needs to be
maintained and upgraded to
facilitate growth in the rural
areas of our County."

Robbins says that if
elected, "I want to make
county government work for
all the people of Walton
County. I plan to be a voice
for all the people and not just
a select few. Operation of
county government should be
an open process and county
officials should represent the
views of all the people. I plan
to do just that."



promise the integrity or prin-
ciples the public expects of an
elected official. Constitu-
tional officers are sworn to
support, protect and defend
the Constitution of the
United States and the State
of Florida. I do not always
agree with the laws and man-
dates passed down, but the
laws of the land cannot be
compromised. This is where
we as voters have a great deal
of responsibility, almost ev-
erything we do is a reflection
of the people elected to office;
they create the laws and
regulations of everyday life.
This is whatvnakes this job
so very important.
Every valid vote must be
considered sacred and we
must continue to have fair,
honest and secure elections.
Beasley expressed his
thanks to the voters of Wal-
ton County for their contin-
ued support and consider-
ation in the November gen-
eral election. "Remember
your vote is your voice and
democracy works best when
everyone participates."

DFSCC: No new homes on Circle Drive


By LEIGH STRICKLAND
The DeFuniak Springs
city council meeting of Sep-
tember 11, 2006 was one of
the most well attended city
council meetings in recent
months, but not because
it fell on the fifth anniversary
of the World Trade Center
attack. Citizens packed City
Hall to voice their opinions in
an ongoing variance request
dispute that would change
the face of historic Circle
Drive.
Circle Drive resident
Bruce Butts owns three lots
on the eastern side of Lake
DeFuniak and currently
has two homes on his prop-
erty. This exceeds the maxi-
mum allowed under city code,
which limits the number
to two and half dwelling
units per acre. He is seeking
a zoning code variance that
would allow him to build
an additional single family
dwelling on one of his lots.
This issue had come before
the council on two previous
occasions, but was not settled
before the September 11
meeting.
City of DeFuniak Springs
Building and Planning Direc-
tor Larry Laird said at that
meeting, "This is the third
time this request has come
forth. I think it needs to be
settled. This has been going
on for some time." '
Laird, in a staff recom-
mendation to the council,


said he saw no reason to con-
tradict the city's
planning board, which had
voted at its September 6
meeting to recommend that
the council deny the request.
At the September 11 coun-
cil meeting, discussion of
the issue began with a re-
quest for continuance from
Butts' attorney George
Miller. The city council
received several letters of
opposition to the variance
request and Miller said that
he had only just received
copies of these. He wanted
more time, he said, to
better respond to questions
raised in the letters.
City Attorney Clayton
Adkinson advised the
council that a continuance
would not be unusual, but
that it was their decision
whether or not to grant it.
"It's purely discretionary
with you," he said. The
council chose not to grant the
continuance.
Miller went on to say that
his client was being treated
differently than would a per--
son owning one lot, calling it
a "Constitutional law issue."
He said, "If he owned but one
lot, he'd be allowed to do
that," and that ruling against
Butts "means he owns a
lot that is virtually worth-
less."
Miller also said that Butts
was willing to do away with
the smaller house on his


property. "If he got rid of the
small house, he couldn't build
another unit," Miller said.
"It's a fundamental issue of
fairness."
Butts assured the council
that he would not be chang-
ing the density of Circle
Drive by building another
home.
Those opposed to the vari-
ance were allowed to address
the council to voice their con-
cerns. Many of those in oppo-
sition also wrote letters to the
council stating their position.
Circle Drive resident
Harley Henderson wrote,
"The city codes have not
changed since the Butts
family bought the home...
They knew, or should have
known, full well that the
Fred Baker family had al-
ready been denied a similar
request for a variance at the
time of their purchase."
Councilman Roy McLeod
felt similarly. He said
to Butts, "You bought this
property knowing what you
were facing. You bought that
property knowing that
that hook was in there."
Henderson's letter also
said, "I feel that DeFuniak
Springs has its own unique
character with ample green
spaces... I feel that we should
preserve this unique charac-
ter as much as is humanly
possible."
There was also concern
about. the precedent that


City implementing salary study findings


By LEIGH STRICKLAND
DeFuniak Springs City
Manager Kim Presnell has
been working with city staff
toward implementing the re-
sults of a recent salary study.
The study, done by Lane Rees
of Human Resource Solu-
tions, Inc., was presented to
the city council at an August
22 budget workshop,.Presnell
said, "Results will becoming
effective on October 1."
The process began with
Presnell meeting with city
department heads and em-
ployees to discuss comments
they had about their jobs.
"The one thing I heard
throughout each department
was salary," Presnell said.
In a preliminary look into
city salaries Prenell found a
disparity between salary
rates and a high turnover
rate of city employees. These
things, factored with the cost
of living in Walton County,
moved her to request an offi-
cial salary study, she said.
The city council approved her
request, bids went out, and
Human Resource Solutions
was chosen to perform the
study.
After meetings with the
city manager and leadership
staff, the Rees wrote, "Some
of the themes found were dif-
ficulty of finding candidates
for employment, challenge of
living on minimum wage, in-
creased turnover in several
departments, and serving as
a training ground for some
employers.
"It was emphasized the
need for the city to attract
and retain qualified employ-
ees to perform the work
needed for the residents of
DeFuniak Springs. Further,
turnover directly costs the
city time and money when
employees terminate their
employment."
Using the city's budget for
the 2005 and 2006 fiscal year
and comparing market rates


for base compensation with a
number of cities, counties,
and other organizations, the
study found that "the city of
DeFuniak Springs is not in a
competitive position. The
wages and salaries paid by
the city are generally below
the market, both government
and private sector. The dis-
parity was particularly evi-
dent in several administra-
tive positions and public
works labor related positions.
Fire fighter and police offic-
ers also trend below, as does
the leadership team."
The study went on to rec-
ommend that the city per-
form additional salary stud-
ies in coming years "to ascer-
tain market movement." It
also recommended "develop-
ment of a standard job de-
scription form" to be com-
pleted for each position as
current job descriptions "are
out of date and also are quite
brief in content."
Other suggestions to the
city were to review employee
raises and rewards for long-
time service to the city, to
examine health care or medi-
cal insurance options to pro-
vide the best plan at the low-
est cost to employees, and to
compare vacation policies
with other government enti-
ties and competitive busi-
nesses. The study also recom-
mended enhancing the city's
website with a jobs section
and monetarily rewarding
employees for referring
qualified candidates for jobs.
A 25-grade salary struc-
ture was included in the
study. It shows minimum,
midpoint, and maximum
salaries for each position.
"Progression within a grade,"
the study recommended, "will
be based on length of time
employed by the city, perfor-
mance and cost of living ad-
justments."
Several position title rec-
ommendations were included

which would clarify duties.
and add positions to allow for
training and growth.
About the study's imple-
mentation, Presnell said, "It's
going to be a positive thing
for employees and residents
because we're going to be able
to retain and attract a higher
caliber of employees. One of
the things I'd like to see is
providing education and in-
house training to promote
from within, to keep trained
staff and allow the opportu-
nities to grow.
"It's been an ongoing pro-
cess. In a few instances, du-
ties and responsibilities have
changed. We're trying to
work smarter and better
with who we have. Our goal
and responsibility is to serve
the city of DeFuniak Springs
to the best of our ability."
Presnell invites any ques-
tions or comments from the
public. To reach City Hall,

could be set by approving the
variance. Dennis Ray, an-
other Circle Drive resident,
said, "Others intend to ask
for similar variances if this is
approved. That's all it takes
to destroy our beautiful little
city."
In connection with this,
Ann Robinson, resident
of Circle Drive, wrote, "I have
always regarded DeFuniak
Springs as a lovely lady who


NIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 2006


must be treated with tender,
loving care and respect to
preserve her beauty."
In all, 19 letters of opposi-
tion were sent, of which 12
were from Circle Drive resi-
dents. All but two were from
residents of the historic dis-
trict.
Janet Windsor does not
live on Circle Drive, but
she wrote, "To crowd struc-
tures onto tiny lots,
against all existing codes,
would forever change the fla-
vor of our best known neigh-
borhood and take away the
reason many visitors enjoy


coming to our beautiful
town." She asked "on behalf
of the citizens of DeFuniak
Springs" that the council
vote against the variance.
Councilman Don Harrison
commended everyone in at-
tendance for their civility,
thanked those who submit-
ted letters, and said that the
planning board should be lis-
tened to. The only way to
overturn their decision, he
said, would be if public com-
ment was different from the
board's decision.
In a 5-0 vote, the council
denied the variance request.

Scam artists have victim-
ized residents in Northwest
Florida as well as in Georgia
recently by impersonating
utility company employees.
In Okaloosa County, a resi-
dent has been contacted by
telephone by someone iden-
tifying himself as a Gulf
Power employee. The caller
tells the victim that his or her
electric bill is past due and
that electricity will be cut off
if the customer does not pro-
vide a credit card payment
immediately. The card num-
bers are then used to make
fraudulent purchases.
Gulf Power employees will
never call a customer at
home seeing personal infor-
mation. Gulf Power represen-
tatives will never ask a cus-
tomer for money when they
visit a residence. All Gulf
Power representatives carry

Freedom of the Seas-The largest ship on water


Photos and Story by
CHUCK HINSON
It is the ride of a lifetime on the big-
gest cruise ship ever built. After its de-
but earlier this year, the massive com-
pound sets sail in the Caribbean.
Earlier this month, I got away from
the Florida Panhandle and set sail on
the newest and largest cruise ship in the
Royal Caribbean fleet. The Freedom of
the Seas is the biggest ship in the
company's line, and has anything you
might desire.
My seven-day getaway included stops
in island ports such as Labadee, Haiti,
Montego Bay, Jamaica, Cozumel, Mexico
and Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands.
Such were the amenities on board that
it was hard leaving the ship.
Once entering the massive construc-
tion of steel and glass, one was greeted
with a towering atrium that could be
viewed for several stories. The ceiling
was decorated with of gold, glass, nu-
merous Greek statues and a sculpture
of a woman diving into the ocean that
looked as if she would be descending
onto the ship's deck any minute.
Throughout the ship's promenade
deck, one could find just about anything
desired, if one were in the mood for some
shopping.
Whether one was looking for dia-
monds and gold at the jewelry shops,
Paris fashions, duty-free alcohol, or Ben
& Jerry's ice cream, the Freedom of the
Seas had every spending taste covered.
National chain stores and restaurants
like Ben & Jerry's and Johnny Rockets
were also on board.
A new feature that Royal Caribbean
has added was the purchase of souve-
nirs from the various ports. This enables
travelers to buy various items at the
general store, without paying taxes or
having to carry their purchases through-
out the day while touring the port city.
Items on the ship are all purchased
using the ship's credit card, called' ,a"sea
pass," and paying at the conclusion of
the cruise. This credit card made it im-
possible to get short-changed, elimi-
nated having to deal with foreign cur-
rency and added the convenience ofjust
swiping a card.
But as some parents came to regret,
the children also get a sea pass. All
transactions are charged tothe family's
state room. The final bill comes at the
end, to many parents' surprise. One
could hear several "losing their cool"
when the final bill was slipped under
their door the night before final dock-
ing in Miami.
If crowds are not your thing, then this


SITTING MAJESTICALLY ON THE azure blue waters of the Haitian coast-
line, the Freedom of the Seas soars over any other ship docked next to her.

September is square dance

ern western square dancing.
This is something for all ages

Hutcheson-Jones.
"This is good for families
doing something together
and couple setting one
evening a week doing some-
thing together. It is also good
for singles to come out and
meet other singles,There is
no alcohol, profanity or ob-
scene language. This is clean
wholesome fun for everyone,"
Hutcheson-Jones said.
"Square dancers meet
people from all walks of life.
And this kind of dancing has
been written up in the AARP
magazine. Dancing is said to
be very good for people physi-
cally and mentally", she said.
The Chautauqua Squares
Club has been a part of De-
* Funiak Springs for almost 35
years. The club invites those
people who have moved into
the area, retirees and even

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 2006


Continued From 1B

This was a favorite, not only
with the kids, but adults. I
saw a few grownups pushing
and shoving to get their turn
on the board.
If powerful raging water
isn't your thing, then there are
three other pool areas on the
top floor of the boat.
One is for children, with
waterfalls, buckets of dump-
ing water and slides. The next
is the middle pool, with hot
tubs, water volleyball, basket-
ball, and hundreds of chairs,
tables and hammocks. These
activities go on throughout
the day. There's barely time
to lie in the sun, at least for
long.
But the most enjoyable pool,
in my experience, is the
adults-only pool. This pool is
surrounded by gold palm
trees, tropical plants and bird
carvings. This is for anyone
over the age of 16 years.
On either side of the adult
pool, there is a feature that is
only seen on the Royal
Caribben cruise lines. Two
massive hot tubs that hang
out 112 feet above the crash-
ing waves of the ocean. Each
holds 16 people.
The Solarium is one of the
most peaceful features on the
boat, especially in the early
morning hours, just before cof-
fee and a lavish breakfast is
served.
That brings us to food and
eating on a cruise. What you
have heard about cruise ships
and food is all true, and never
more accurate than when you
set foot on the Freedom of the
Seas. The Windjammer,
Chops, Portofino, Jade,
Johnny Rockets, and the main
formal dining room, can sat-
isfy any taste.
From steaks and fillets at
Portofino and Chops, to mid-
night buffets in the formal
dining room with exquisite
desserts, hand-made pastries
and seafood, it is a food free-
for-all.
If gaining 10 extra pounds
in seven days is not your
thing, you may wato ven-
ture into the nightlife and
kids' activities on bobaid.
For the-kids, there is a video
arcade with numerous games


SPOUTING MUSHROOMS, DUMPING water buckets and anything else that can spill
water could be found at the H20 Zone kid's pool on the top floor of the ship.


and activities, a rock climb-
ing wall, located by the
FlowRider, that towers over
the top of the ship, teen clubs
and even a professional-size
ice skating rink.
A family can also maintain
its workout routines in the
fully-equipped gym, with a
running track on the top floor
and activities that the entire
family can do together.
For the adults without kids,
the options are just as wide.
With Irish pubs, the Cham-
pagne.Bar, the Viking Room,
Schooners, comedy club acts,
concerts, Broadway shows
and midnight performances
on the Promonade deck, there
is something always going on.
If all the spirits, food,
laughs, and conversation isn't
for you, then pull out your
wallet, pull up a chair and
pull down the arm. That's
right, the Casino Royale has
everything you could possibly
want if you wish to try your
hand at gambling.
With black jack, Caribbean
stud poker, and hundreds of
slot machines, the casino is a
favorite hangout after both
fine dining seatings take
place at 10:30 p.m. The noise
and sound of money being
won (they say) is a natural
enticer that pulls you into the


den of debt.
Surprisingly for a cruise
ship, there were several who
were winning and walking
out of the casino with more
money than they came in
with.
The ship is a marvel of en-
gineering. Its sheer massive
size towers over everything in
and around the liner.
At most ports of call, trans-
fer boats, or tenders, had to
be used to take passengers
back and forth to the ports
due to the size of the vessel
and the fact that most ports
are not deep enough for such
liners to pull right up to the
unloading docks.
Tender boats were used for
all ports of call except
Montego Bay, Jamaica. Pas-
sengers could simply walk
the ramp onto the pavement
and walk right back on when
they desired.
The Freedom of the Seas is
in its inaugural season and
will continue afloat as the
biggest cruise ship in the
world. But like cell phones,
computers, and cars, a new
and even bigger cruise liner
from the Royal Caribbean
line, the Liberty will.split the
'waves in late 2007.


LOOKING LIKE THE INSIDE of a specialty mall, this is the main area on the ship
that is referred to as the promenade. It is where most of the shopping on board takes
place.


~- -

GOLD PALMS AND SMOOTH JAZZ music was the setting for the adult pool that was
on the other end of the ship's top floor. Bar service, fruit servings and pool attendants
waited on passengers hand and foot.

Reid reportedly refused to
take along any on-air friends
for the taping, preferring that
they stay at home to be avail-

'Cracker Cowhunters'

to hit the trail again


The Florida Agricultural
Museum will present the
"Great Florida Cattle Drive
of Ought 6" December 5-9,
2006. Registration is now
underway for the,,event,
which will begin jttsouth of
Kissiiirnee and end at the
new SilvIer Spur? Arena in
; ':Kenan. ile
In 1995 -- to celebrate 150
years of Florida statehood --
a group of 600 cattlemen, his-
torians, horse lovers and
hearty adventurers drove
1,000 head of native Cracker
Cattle across the state. The
group also included wagon
drivers, walkers, artists and
local, state and national me-
dia.
Over the last four centu-
ries, cattle production has
been one of Florida's most
influential industries. In the
1995 Cattle Drive, partici-
pants used the sesquicenten-
nial celebration to educate
this state's, citizens and
people around the globe to
the fact that the first Ameri-
can cowboys were Floridians-
-the cattle business in the
United States began right
here in Florida.
"Even though Florida has
been a major force in the
cattle business for hundreds
of years, very few of our own
citizens are aware of this rich
heritage," said Florida Agri-
culture Commissioner
Charles H. Bronson, who is
also a rancher.
To salute the importance of
Florida's "cow culture," orga-
nizers will once again be driv-
ing cattle, riding the trail,
sleeping on the ground and
living the life of ancestors for
a few days. The Seminole
Tribe of Florida has provided
about 400 head of cattle, and
every participant who wishes
to will be able to spend some
time as a "cowhunter" help-
ing to drive the cattle. Camps
will be primitive and dress
should be late-1800s (there
will be no t-shirts, tennis
shoes or ball caps allowed).
There will be historic en-
campments each night along
the trail depicting some im-
portant era in Florida's his-
tory (Timucuan, Spanish Co-
lonial, Civil War, Seminole,
etc.), making the event even
a ride through Florida's past.

On December 9, partici-
pants and the public will con-
tinue the celebration at trail's
end with an old fashioned
"frolic," which will include
authors, singers, poets, story-
tellers, historians, re-enac-
tors and an art auction fea-
turing CAAF (cowboy Artists


OWC Arts Center to hold outdoor concert


Relive the legendary songs
that became a soundtrack for
a whole generation and en-
joy an unforgettable evening
under the stars at the OWC
Amphitheater with a concert
by Jim Seals of "Seals &
Crofts" and Dan Seals of "En-
gland Dan & John Ford
Coley" on Oct. 27 at 7:30 pm.
Tickets are now on sale for
$20 reserved seating and $15

The brothers reunite to
perform some of their time-
less hits in a show that has
wowed audiences since the
brothers joined forces in 2002
at the famed Grand Ole Opry.

Summer Breeze, I'd Really
Love to See You Tonight, Dia-
mond Girl, We May Never
Pass This Way Again, Hum-
mingbird, Nights are Forever
Without You, Love is the An-
swer, as well as some coun-
try hits from Dan Seals and
duo's new music!
Jim Seals, as part of the
1970's rock duo Seals &
Crofts, enjoyed a string of five
gold albums for Warner Bros.
from 1972 to 1976 in addition
to a greatest hits compilation
that reached double plati-
num status. His brother, Dan
Seals, of England Dan &
John Ford Coley, also re-
corded eleven #1 country hits
as solo artist in the 1980s.
In 1986, Dan Seals won
two of the Country Music As-
sociation awards for Single of
the Year with Bop, and Duet
of the Year, with Marie
Osmond, for Meet Me in Mon-
tana.
Whether performing one of
their Grammy nominated

Pandemic Influenza:
Concerns for hunters and domestic bird handlers/producers
S*
Article 6 of a 7 part series

To date, the H5N1 strain of Avian Influenza has not been detected in humans, wild or domes-
tic birds in the western hemisphere.

* The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services and the Florida Fish and
SWildlife Conservation Commission have stepped up surveillance for Avian Influenza for both i
domestic and wild birds.

If you have domestic birds that develop an unusual sickness or have die-offs report these con-
cerns to the Florida Department of Agriculture at (850) 410-0900. If you come upon dead
wild birds report these incidents to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission
at http://MyFWC.com/bird.

As a domestic bird handler make sure to follow these precautions:
Work in well ventilated areas when indoors.
,* Work upwind of birds to reduce risk of inhaling dust or dander when working outdoors.
-,W hen possible, wear rubber or latex gloves that are disposable or can be d'sintlecled.
When possible, wear protective eyewear while handling birds. ......
Wash hands frequently with soap and water.
Disinfect work surfaces and equipment.
* Do not eat, drink or smoke when handling birds.
Hunters and others should follow these precautions when handling wild birds.

In Remembrance of
SeBrina Lynn Coleman
1955-2006


On September 11, 1955, God looked down and
said go down my child and take your place. You
have a mission to fulfill. So SeBrina "Lynn"
Coleman came into our lives. She was our
flashlight. SeBrina or "Lynn" as we called her
was a gentle child. As she grew up she tried to
fulfill God's plan for her life. She had compas-
sion for the young, the old and anyone she
came into contact with. On the night before
entering the hospital she visited some of her
senior-friends. On April 9, 2006 God said,
servant you have fulfilled your mission, now
you must come home. As quietly as she entered
this world she closed her eyes and as He took
her in his arms, she went peacefully with her
family and friends around her. We realize she
is in a better place and we will forever love and
cherish her memory.


Happy Birthday!
Lynn
We love you!

The FYSAP is a collabora-

Office of Drug Control, the
Florida Department of Edu-
cation, Office of Safe and
Drug Free Schools, and the
Florida Alcohol and Drug
Abuse Association to serve as
a united voice forFlorida's

other members of the
FYCSAP, will attend the
2006 Florida Prevention

receive training to enhance
her skills in social marketing,
public speaking, group dy-

Hart will help the State of
Florida form new strategies
and ideas to reduce underage
drinking and substance
abuse among Florida teens.
"We need to break the tradi-
tion and give the kids the
education needed to make
the right choices. To do this,
I think that local law enforce-

school groups need to work
together to provide regular
safe, alcohol-free events for
the youth in our community.
We need to address this be-

* Don't spend major time with minor people. If there are
people in your life that continually disappoint you, break
promises, stomp on your dreamsvfIo judgmental, have
different values and don't have your back during diffi-
cult times...that is not a friend.
* To have a friend, be a friend. Sometimes in life as you
grow, your friends will either grow or go. Surround your-
self with people who reflect values, goals interests and
lifestyle.
* When I think of any of my successes, I am thankful to
GOD from whom all blessings flow, and to my family
and friends that enrich my life.
* Over the years my phone book has changed because I
changed for the better. At first you think you're going to
be alone, but after a while new people show up in your
life that make your life so much sweeter and easier to
endure.
* Remember what your elders used to say, "Birds of a i
feather flock together. If you're an eagle, don't hang
around chickens: Chickens Can't Fly!
I love the Lord and thank Him for all that He does in my
life, He is my source of existence. He keeps me function-

Bulldogs lose in tight contest


FREEPORT'S JONATHON RABBE gets a bullet pass right
in the stomach as he picked up a few more yards for the
Bulldogs. FHS fell to Port St. Joe, 10-0 this past Friday night.


By CHUCK HINSON
Defending state champion
Pt. St. Joe rolled into Free-
port on Friday expecting to
leave with a blow-out win.
But Freeport, coming off both
a victory-high and winning
the county football champi-
onship before falling to
Northview on Sept. 8, had dif-
ferent plans for the Sharks.
The Sharks did all their
damage prior to halftime,
scoring all 10 points in the
midst of a heavily penalized
game that included 12 penal-
ties for 25 total yards.
Jordan McNair had two
touchdown runs for Pt. St.
Joe.
Freeport looked impressive
on the offense with Lloyd
Anderson (8-for-17 for 92
yards) at the helm and the
running game being spear-


headed by JoshThomas and
Logan Caudill.
The Sharks got their first
score when running back
Chaz Byrd sprinted down the
field and scored on an impres-
sive 75 yards. Austin Peltier
hit the extra point and got an
18-yard field goal to put the
game at 10-0.
Freeport was on the move
late in the fourth quarter and
down on Pt. St. Joe's 11-yard
line, but could not convert
the third-and-8 play into a
first down. The Bulldogs also
attempted a 27-yard field
goal to keep the game from
being a shut-out, but that at-
tempt failed, giving the ball,
and the win, to Pt. St. Joe.
Freeport is off this week-
end, while South Walton wel-
comes Cottondale and Walton
hosts Chipley.


Local volleyball


teams continue


strong play


SOUTH WALTON'S STEFFI SEEGER sets the ball fior
her team mates during their match-up against Northwview.
South Walton won three straight matches over the Lady
Chiefs.


By PATRICK CASEY
All three county schools
picked up victories in volley-
ball last week as squads
reached the midpoint of
the regular season.
The South Walton
Seahawks broke a seven
game losing streak as they
defeated Northview in three
straight games (25-11,25-
18,25-7) to improve to 3-11
overall and 1-2 in District 1,
Class 3A. The Seahawks had
suffered defeats against
Panama City Mosley and
Freeport, but bounced back
against the Chiefs.
Freeport swept South Wal-
ton(25-19,25-21,25-23) in
three games to claim the
county championship, then
beat Jay in a five-game
thriller (22-25,25-11,24-
26,25-20,15-13) on the road
to improve to 11-2 overall
and 2-0 in district play. The
Bulldogs will host Pensacola
Christian on Thursday, Sep-
tember 21, at 5:30 p.m. The
Bulldogs will host the Dis-
trict 1, Class 2A tournament
in October and face two very


important district' matches
with Baker in the next
two weeks.
Walton's showdown with
Pensacola Catholic lasted
four games as the Crusaders
beat Walton in Pensacola (25-
23, 25-19, 26-28, 25-15) to
drop the Braves to 8-7 and 2-
1 in the district. Walton will
get a rematch with Catholic
in DeFuniak Springs on
Thursday, September 28, at
6 p.m.

Marketing

campaign

helps Florida

shrimp

industry

A three-year marketing
campaign helped keep
Florida's shrimp industry vi-
able in the face of unrelent-
ing competition from foreign
countries, Florida Agricul-
ture Commissioner Charles
H. Bronson said.
The promotion, conducted
by the Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer
Services from 2004 to 2006,
was instrumental in the sale
of 2.7 million pounds of
Florida wild-caught shrimp
by participating retail stores.
Some stores reported sales
increases as high as 2,000
percent over the same peri-
ods in prior years.
"Florida's shrimp industry
has faced an onslaught of
competition from foreign
countries that have exported
more than a billion pounds of
shrimp into the U.S. market
in the past few years,"
Bronson said. "Many of our
state's shrimpers have been
forced out of business alto-
gether, and the remaining
ones have experienced very
difficult times. This market-
ing campaign was crucial in
helping keep Florida's
shrimp industry alive."
According to the National
Marine Fisheries Service, for-
eign countries have captured
88 percent of the total U.S.


market. Vietnam, China, In-
dia and Brazil have dramati-
cally increased exports to the
United States in recent
years. An estimated 200,000
U.S. jobs have been lost.
'"Florida shrimp is a pre-
mium quality product with
superior taste," Bronson said.
"We believe that consumers
deserve to have a choice, and
we encourage them to ask for
shrimp from Florida. When
they do, they receive a whole-
some, natural product--and
they help our fishermen and
our state's economy."

Florida teams go 2-1


By CHUCK HINSON
The top dogs remained on
the top as Ohio State rolled
over intrastate rival Cincin-
nati, 37-7. Auburn moved up
to the No. 2 and No. 3 spot
after their hard-fought defen-
sive battle with LSU and the
final score standing at a
shocking 7-3.
But it was the Florida
teams that saw the most dis-
appointment.
The Gators traveled to Ten-
nessee, where once again the
two clashed in a heated battle
that brought in more than
100,000 fans for both sides of
the field. It was a tough de-
fensive match-up, but once
again the Gators and their
new "state of mind," pre-
vailed and gave the Vols their
first loss of the season with a
final score of 21-20.
Florida faces SEC rival
Kentucky who is coming off
a 31-14 victory over Ole Miss
this past Saturday.
But it was the other two
teams in the state that once
again showed the tables are
turning in the ACC and the
good old days have bid fare-
well.
It looks like Miami head
coach Larry Coker might be
looking for another job next
season if things don't change.
The Hurricanes got their first
loss to Florida State in the


opening game, then turned
around and blasted FAMU,
and then had the second-
worst game of Coker's career
when they were embarrassed
by Louisville and had to re-
turn to Miami with a 31-7
loss.
Miami seemed to have a
tough time just getting the
players on the right play.
Both offense and defense
lacked stamina, and Louis-
ville seemed to be on a mis-
sion and ready to prove they
had what it would take to
topple the Canes.
Miami welcomes Houston
on Sept. 23 and they hope
they can redeem themselves
as a team and for the thou-
sands of Hurricane fans that
were left with their jaws
dropped. The loss to the Car-
dinals this past weekend
dropped the Hurricanes out
of the top 25 positions in both
polls.
Now to the Seminoles. It
seemed that they were hav-
ing problems with Troy last
weekend, but in the fourth
quarter, they regained com-
posure and led to win the
game. This week is a much
different story for the Semi-
noles. They now have their
first loss, and to a younger
Bowden at that.

It has become a heated me-


dia frenzy game, the Bowden
Bowl. With son Tommy
Bowden at Clemson and papa
at the helm for what seems
to have been an eternity, the
two have met for eight years,
with Bobby taking the wins
5-2.
But, like everything else
the Seminoles have had prob-
lems with this season, that
record would be tested and
the other Bowden would be
going back to South Carolina
with a victory under his belt.
Clemson started out im-
pressive and continuously
moved the ball down the field
into Florida State territory.
They led the ballgame at half-
time after an impressive
touchdown, and they never
looked back.
The Seminoles did seem to
get that old feeling. in the
fourth quarter, when they
bombarded the field and tied
the game at 20-20. But this
time it was too little, too late.
Clemson came back in the
final five seconds of the game
to score, and gave Bobby's
Seminoles their first loss of
the season.
It was also an idea of what
the rest of the year might
contain if the Bowden on the
field and the one in the press
box don't make some imme-
diate changes, beginning
with their own positions.

THIS SHARK, right, was caught about the fishing boat Top Gun and while huge, was not
the biggest'shark caught in the tournament. That honor went to Jonathan Barbee, who caught
a 765-pound tiger shark.



P protesters sink their



teeth into tourney


By Leah Stratmann
The Humane Society of
the United States took a
strong stand against the
shark fishing tournament
sponsored by the Destin
Fishing and History Mu-
seum held last week. In a let-
ter sent to Destin's mayor,
the society said, "sharks will
be killed in a tournament for
financial gain and the Hu-
mane Society of the United
States is urging the city to
cancel this contest killing."
The tournament was not
cancelled and the Humane
Society paid to have a plane


fly a protest banner over the
Destin Harbor during the
tournament and protesters
were stationed along U.S.
Hwy 98 in front of the en-
trance to the weigh-in area.

When all was said the
done, the four-day tourney
had the participation of 37
fishing boats and a tiger
shark caught on the first day
by a 21-year-old Destin resi-
dent, weighing 765 pounds
took home the top prize.
Laura Morse, associate di-
rector of the Destin Fishing
Museum said, "I'm very


proud of the boat captains. A
lot of respect was shown to
the sharks. The captains
were very good about calling
in the catches and if a catch
was not in contention, it was
released. In this way, about
400 sharks were caught and
released," she said.
Further, Morse said the
edible meat from the 11
sharks that were caught is
going to be picked up by
members of one of test wing
units at Eglin Air Force Base,
frozen, and used to make and


SWMCD mulls over


helicopter ownership


By Jeffrey Powell
South Walton Mosquito
Control District (SWMCD)
board members want to have
the ability to spray from the
air. Whether or not this
means the purchase of an air-
craft or perhaps the periodic
leasing of one is still a mat-
ter of conjecture.
"Sooner or later we will
need a helicopter," said board
member Jim Crawford.
The Bay County Director
of Beach Mosquito Control
District Ed Hunter is a pro-
, ponent of aerial spraying. "If
.people see what a helicopter
can do they will approve,"
Hunter said. "This expense
makes a difference."


Hunter went on to make
the point that spraying from
standard vehicles can be lim-
ited. "With trucks you can
only spray where there are
roads," Hunter said.
Hunter attended the
SWMCD's Sept. 19 board
meeting at Director Gary
D'Andrea's invitation.
"We feel Mr. Hunter can
provide us with invaluable
insights into the aerial dis-
tribution 'of our products,"
D'Andrea said.
Board members had asked
Hunter if a program could be
initiated whereby SWMCD
would be able to share own-
ership of an aircraft; the an-
swer was no.


"We have no common trea-
sury or certification, there-
fore a sharing of the aircraft
is not possible," Hunter said.
D'Andrea stressed that no
decision concerning an air-
craft has been made. "I can
not tell you what the future
holds," D'Andrea said. "Right
now we are just trying to get
all the information needed to
make an educated decision in
the future."

The SWMCD will hold a
hazardous material amnesty
day on Oct. 7. Citizens with
questions can call 267-2112.
The SWMCD is located at
774 N. C.R. 393 in Santa
Rosa Beach.


SWMCD BOARD MEMBERS at their Sept. 19 meeting discussed using a helicopter to
spray bfor mosquitos.


Commissioners


approve affordable


housing agreement


By Dotty Nist
A 615-home affordable
housing community is ex-
pected to become reality in
Walton County within five
years as a result of a Sept.
12 agreement between the
Walton County Board of
County Commissioners
(BCC) and Regional Utilities.

Regional Utilities, Inc., a
privately-owned utility com-
pany, provides water and
sewer service to most of the
area south of the bay as an
agent for Walton County.
For some time, affordable
housing has been a rare com-
modity in Walton County,
and for a number of years of-
ficials have viewed housing
attainably priced for the
workforce as a top local need.
On Sept. 12, Regional
Utilities CEO Dewey Wilson
commented that the Grayton
Beach-based utility
company's interest in afford-
able housing was motived by
the fact that employees can-
not afford to live within the
service area.
Wilson further explained
that Regional had identified
a 400-acre parcel owned by
the company that Regional
had offered to surplus and
transfer to the county for the
purpose of providing
workforce housing in the
community.
The parcel is located east
of Freeport off J.W.
Hollington Road, next to the
Windswept Dunes property.
Wilson said that plans for the
community include a school
site and wastewater treat-
ment plant, and that sewer
service will be available for
all 615 homes that are envi-
sioned.
Pursuant to plans for the
community, Wilson pre-


sented a proposed interlocal
agreement between the BCC
and Regional.
Terms of the agreement
included: transfer off the 400-
acre parcel to the county and
then to a private, non-profit
corporation that would cre-
ate the workforce housing,
with the county serving as
sponsor for the corporation;
return of the property to Re-
gional if the project is not
commenced within 36
months; construction by the
corporation of a waste water
treatment plant to be con-
veyed to the City of Freeport
in exchange for water and
wastewater impact fees and
taps for the workforce hous-
ing project; a $3,200 payment
per lot closing to reimburse
Regional; permission for re-
lease of 40 acres as a school
site with per-acre reimburse-
ment of Regional's purchase
price; deed restrictions to in-
sure that affordable housing
requirements are met; reser-
vation of necessary traffic ca-
pacity for the development;
and a non-voting seat on the
corporation board for a Re-
gional Utilities board mem-
ber.
Wilson noted that the
plans would involve no cost
to taxpayers, and that it
would involve no debt on the
part of the county. Funding
for the project would come
from bonding and grants and
alternative financing. The
only cost to the county, he ex-
plained, would be the pledge
of ad valorem taxes from
homes in the project area in
connection with a Tax Incre-
ment District envisioned for
the workforce housing site.
He added that local devel-
oper Lloyd Blue is contribut-
ing $80,000 to the school dis-
trict for purchase of the


school site.
Wilson said no lots would
be sold for speculation.
Eligibility for lots would
include Walton County resi-
dency and an income not ex-
ceeding the median range for
the county:
Home prices are envi-
sioned' at $110,000 to
$120,000, probably with no
down payment. In order to
maintain affordability, per
year equity to be acquired on
homes will be limited to ap-
proximately three percent
per year. This equity mea-
sure would be factored into
the price a homeowner could
sell for, and the affordable
housing corporation would be
able to buy homes back when
they were offered for resale,
Wilson added.
"I think this is much
needed in our county," said
District 2 Commissioner Ken
Pridgen.
He moved for approval,
and his motion carried
unanimously. The agreement
had previously been signed
by Regional's board of direc-
tors.
Serving on the workforce
housing corporation board
will be Lloyd Blue, Bonnie
McQuiston of the Walton
County Taxpayers Associa-
tion, Anita Page of the South
Walton Community Council,
Walton County Human Re-
sources Director Gary
Mattison, Freeport City

The Golden Anniversary
Convention of the Demo-
cratic Women's Club of
Florida, Inc. was recently,
held at Sandestin Golf and
Beach Resort in South Wal-
ton County, on September 14-
17. The convention had mem-
bers from across Florida in
attendance. Their theme,
"Lighting the Way", reflected
on the history of the club as
well as future plans to in-
volve women in politics.
Three women with rich his-
tories in politics in Walton
County were honored.
Ina S. Thompson was the
first supervisor of Walton
County School System in


1948. She was also the first
woman to head a state
agency in Florida when Gov-
ernor LeRoy Collins ap-
pointed her Motor Vehicle
Commissioner in 1955.
Mildred Wilkerson the first
African-American to teach in
Walton County (two years
before integration). She was
also the first African-Ameri-
can woman elected to public
office in Walton County when
she was elected to the school
board. She was re-elected in
2004 and still serves.
Sabra 0. Martin was the
first woman elected in Wal-
ton County. She was the,
Democratic candidate for


school board in the 1974 elec-
tion and defeated both Mhale
candidates (one was the in-
cumbent). She served four
terms, a total of 16 Y'ears,
seven of those as chair.
"These women exemplify
the spirit and principles of
the Democratic Party. They
successfully raised families,
pursued careers, and made
time to serve the working-
class families of their com-
munities. They were pioneer-
ing women who led the way
and were among the 'first' in
achieving success", said
Grace Marse, president,
Democrat Women's Club of
Walton County.

Preservation by a nose


By LEAH STRATMANN
One project coming before
the Walton County Planning
Commission last week gener-
ated a good bit of discussion
about just what does and
does not constitute land pres-
ervation.
Katsue, LLC came before
the commissioners request-
ing approval to install 20
single-family residential lots
on 2.52 acres of land located
at the corner of Louva Lane
and Deno Drive, north of the
Shadow Pines subdivision.
While county planner Ja-
son Bryan. said the project
met the requirements of the
land development code
(LDC), the county was re-
questing the developer to vol-
untarily provide an addi-
tional 3-foot setback as the
plans as drawn showed the
houses being built right up to
the preservation line of 10-
feet between house lots.
Bryan also noted the devel-
opers had taken advantage of
the 25 percent preservation
buyout whereby 25 percent of
the land that would normally
be preserved is bought out
and developed. The area to be
developed is largely sand
pine scrub.
One of the commissioners
noted it is virtually impos-
sible to expect builders to


build right up to a preserva-
tion line without damaging
the intended preservation
area.
Attorney Scott Work, on
behalf of the developer, noted
there has been talk of an or-
dinance being passed that
would require fencing and
signs to be posted in areas of
conservation noting who is
responsible if land is dam-
aged when a house is being
built. This ordinance has not
yet been enacted, but Work
said the developer would be
willing to adhere to this
guideline for this project.
Commissioner Tom Patton
said the developer would
need to erect "substantial
fences with signs detailing
the preservation covenants
and agreeing the fence and
signs not be removed until
the house is completed or
other such plans as applicant
and staff mutually agree to."
He also noted homebuyers
need to be aware of covenants
when they buy the land. As
drawn, the lot plans effec-
tively provide no space
around the house for
barbeque grills, patio furni-
ture, and the like, because
that area is deemed preser-
vation.
Anita Page, executive di-
rector of the South Walton


Community Council (SWCC)
said an applicant is required
to prove plans are going to
work and it is legitimate to
ask if the preservation plan
will work or not.
Commissioner Patton
agreed saying, "The code
probably should not accept
side yards as preservation
areas. Covenants are not en-
forceable by the county. I per-
sonally think we should
eliminate side yard preserva-
tion areas. I applaud staff for
their efforts in this area. I
want the county to give staff
the authority to eliminate
this by writing an ordinance
to this effect."
Bob Dobes, president of
the SWCC noted that pres-
ervation is preservation and
just because it isn't wetlands,
it doesn't mean it isn't impor-
tant. "That's like saying it's
okay to covet your neighbor's
wife as long as she's ugly," he
said, drawing a laugh from
the audience.
In the end, the project was
approved after attorney
Work said the developer
would provide the additional
three feet of setback is the
county demanded it.

Santa Rosa Beach couple


killed in Freeport crash


By BRUCE COLLIER
Two Santa Rosa motorists
were killed in a multiple col-
lision that took place 'the
mid-morning of Sept. 12 at
U.S. 331 and LaGrange Road
in Freeport. Another driver
received minor injuries.
Florida Highway Patrol
(FHP).investigator Cpl. Eric
Didz reported that a vehicle
was traveling north on U.S.
331, and had stopped.
Driving the vehicle was
Wilson Robertson Jr., 65, of
Santa Rosa Beach, accompa-
nied by Yoshyko Rob6rtson,
age not given, also of Santa
Rosa Beach.


A second vehicle was trav-
eling south on U.S. 331,
driven by Fred H. Loper Jr.,
44, of Irvington, AL.
A third vehicle was trav-
eling north on U.S. 331, be-
hind the Robertsons. Driving
that vehicle was Siraif Stacey,
38, of Newton, AL.
According to the report,
Stacey attempted to steer
right to avoid striking the
Robertsons, but was unable
to avoid colliding with the
rear end of the Robertsons'
vehicle.
The Robertsons' vehicle
was pushed forward and


counter-clockwise, traveling
into the southbound lane
where it was again rear-
ended, this time by Loper's
vehicle.
All three vehicles ended up
on the shoulders of the road.
The Robertsons reportedly
died on the scene. Loper re-
ceived minor injuries..Stacey
was not irijured'.'
According to the report,
alcohol does not appear to
have been involved, and nei-
ther of the Robertsons were
wearing seatbelts.
Charges are pending.

Prominence passed off to BCC unresolved


By Leah Stratmann
The Prominence develop-
ment of regional impact
(DRI) has lived up to its
name, being a prominent and
lengthy discussion item at
several meetings of the Wal-
ton County Planning Com-
mission.
Brian Martinez, repre-
senting the county planning
department, said the project
has been continued several
times because of outstanding
issues. Martinez said the de-
velopers have offered to pro-
vide some affordable housing
units, some in the project and
others elsewhere, but still
recommended the project not
be approved and noting, "I
have never spent so much


Gime on one project." The
three primary issues of con-
cern at this time are traffic
concurrency, preservation,
and a 20-fot scenic corridor
buffer.

The developers were seek-
ing permission to proceed
with the last three phases of
the project, consisting of 132
hotel units, 12 bed and break-
fast rooms, and 650 dwelling
units on the north and south
sides of CR-30A, approxi-
mately two miles west of
WaterSound Parkway. The
planned community is on the
order of Seaside or Rosemary
Beach.
Martinez told the commis-
sioners at a previous meeting


that the project is totally sur-
rounded by WaterSound and
Washington State Forest. He
said the county has concerns
about numerous deficiencies
with the scenic corridor pres-
ervation regulations. In gen-
eral, the planning staff deter-
mined the project is not con-
sistent with the comprehen-
sive plan.

The developers argue that
Walton County Board of
County Commissioners
(BCC) approved all phases of
the project in 2004. The de-
velopers contend that all four
phases of the project were
approved but the minutes of
the BCC from that date does
not specify anything other


than Phase 1 of the project
being approved.
Throughout the meeting,
principals from the county
and from the developers were
huddled in the corridor out-
side the meeting room trying
to hammer out agreements to
the outstanding issues.
Pat Blackshear, director of
the planning department,
said' she thought the corridor
buffer issue had been worked
out. "We have met with the
applicant and closely evalu-
ated their requests, some of


which were legitimate, and
we have agreed on final re-
quests," she said.
George Miller, on behalf of
the applicant, asked for the
project to move forward for
BCC approval subject to traf-
fic concurrency restrictions,
which are up to the Depart-
ment of Transportation
(DOT) and preservation is-
sues.
Kenneth Goldberg, repre-
senting the county, said, "we
are not going to agree on this.
I suggest we go forward with


it as is and put it in the BCC's
lap."
Commending the attor-
neys for reaching a stalemate
and not putting the commis-
sioners through more
lengthy arguments on both
sides of the issue, commis-
sioner Tom Terrell made a
motion to toss the project to
the BCC as it now stands. All
passed the motion.

A Floridajury has found that Tobacco companies engaged in extreme and
outrageous conduct in the sale and marketing of cigarettes. Now, the
Florida Supreme Court has held that the tobacco companies are liable for
their conduct and individuals suffering from smoking related illnesses
may pursue claims for compensatory and punitive damages.

Students will gather in the
early sunlight around their
schools' flagpoles to pray.
Singing, holding hands, stu-
dents leading prayers, or just
silently .praying, students
will celebrate "See You at
the Pole" on Wednesday, Sep-
tember 27.
The event has grown from
a small youth group praying
during a weekend retreat in
1990 in Texas to thousands
gathering at schools and col-
leges throughout the world.
Mostly a Christian celebra-
tion, "See You at the Pole" is
meant to start the school
year off with an expression of
faith.
Proponents say that See
You at the Pole is not a pub-
lic demonstration, a club
meeting or a church service.
They say that See You at the
Pole is a time for students to
pray for their schools, friends,
communities, and countries,
even when faced with oppo-
sition.
Walton County students
will gather at their flag poles
at 7a.m. before school all over
the nation on Sep. 27. Stu-
dents should verify times for
their gathering as some
schools start earlier than oth-
ers. The events taking place
in south Walton this year will
also include two secular as-
semblies with Ben Glenn,


The Chalk Guy, (www.chalk
guy.com), who will be doing
drug and alcohol prevention
presentations at both Free-
port High and South Walton
High Schools (both during
school hours).
Additionally, there will be
a community wide event in
the evening of September 27
from 6:00 p.m. 7:30 p.m. at


South Walton High Schools
auditorium featuring Ben
Glenn, as well as the band,
Crimson Clay www.crimson

letes and First Priority.

Maverick election


official speaks at


Women's Convention


Ion Sancho, the supervisor
of elections for Leon County,
FL, was the guest speaker at
a luncheon held on Saturday,
September 16, 2006, at the
Bayside Inn. It was part of
the conference of.Democratic
Women's Club of Florida,
Inc., and was held at the
Sandestin Golf and Beach
Resort, September 14-17,
2006.
Sancho was elected to his
first term in November of
1988. He was re-elected in
1992, 1996, 2000 and 2004,
and is serving his fifth term.
He has devoted special atten-
tion to modernizing that
county's voting system arid
increasing the participation
of citizens in the democratic
process.


Sancho gained national at-
tention in 2004 when he had
the computer systems inde-
pendently tested and found
them to be unverifiable in
Leon County. He said his
policy is, if it can't be verified,
it can't be used. "After mak-
ing considerable improve-
ments, Leon County had the
lowest amount of errors in
the nation in December
2005", said Sabra 0. Martin,
interim chair of Walton
County Democratic Execu-
tive Committee.
Sancho said two factors
currently concern him. First,
the counties have been forced
to use electronic voting ma-
chines that can be tampered
with and are not verifiable.
Second, the legislature


passed a law last year that
made it illegal to use paper
ballots to recount close races.
"This makes no sense or
logic," he said. He urged the
group of women activist to
demand vote accountability.
He proposed a national cer-
tification with standards be-
ing uniform in all states. He
stated that, otherwise, de-
mocracy would be under-
mined. "Democracy is at risk
if the vote can be manipu-
lated," he said.
The Democratic Women's
Club of Florida passed a reso-
lution for voter-verifiable vot-
ing systems that urges the
Florida Senate and House to
pass legislation that would
require paper ballots at all
Florida election sites.

GREG BARNHILL WILL JOIN Al Anderson, Kim Carnes
and Jeffrey Steele on stage, Oct. 7for the second annual 'Thnes
By The Dunes' benfitconcert taking place at Rosemary Beach.
For more information, call Hilltop Productions, or for ticket


reservations, call 231-2900.

'Tunes By The
Dunes' concert is
sweet music to unin-
sured children in
Walton County. The
event also features
singer/songwriter
greats such as Kim
Carnes, Al Anderson
and Jeffrey Steele


The Rosemary Beach
Foundation's Tunes By The
Dunes, a benefit concert for
the Children's Volunteer
Health Network on Saturday
Oct. 7 at 7 p.m., will raise
funds and awareness to help
uninsured children get the
quality healthcare they need
and deserve.
Kim Carnes will headline
the event with her Grammy-
winning hit single "Bette
Davis Eyes," and will per-
form an acoustic concert with
friends and Nashville
songwriters Jeffrey Steele,
Al Anderson and Greg
Barnhill. While you might
not know their names right
away, their songs will cer-
tainly strike a chord.
Jeffrey Steele is one of the
hottest songwriters in coun-
try music today. BMI re-
cently recognized him for 17
million airplays for hits on
albums by Montgomery Gen-
try, Faith Hill, Tim McGraw,
Trace Adkins, Lee Ann
Rimes, VanZant and more.
He also plays shows with
such artists as Keith Urban,
Brad Paisley, Delbert
McClinton and Lynyrd
Skynyrd. He is currently cel-
ebrating his top 5 single with
Rascal Flatts "Me And My
Gang," his number 3 single
with Steve Holy's "Brand
New Girlfriend," and Keith
Anderson's "Everytime I
Hear Your Name."
Al Anderson has now risen
to the level of Nashville roy-
alty. His 24 years with the
New Rhythm and Blues


Quartet (NRBQ) made him a
hero with ioots-rock aficiona-
dos long before he stormed
the country charts.
In 1993, he was named by
Musician Magazine as one of
the top 100 guitarists of the
20th century. He has turned
out an impressive array of
hits for such acts as LeeAnn
Rimes, Tim McGraw,
Wynonna, Lonestar, Dia-
mond Rio, Jimmy Buffet, Ala-
bama, Trisha Yearwood,
Hank Williams Jr., Tanya
Tucker, Nitty Gritty Dirt
band, Rhonda Vincent,
George Jones, Etta James
and many, many more.
Greg Barnhill's eclectic
style of playing keeps fans
coming back for more. His
Grammy-niminated hit
"Walkaway Joe," was re-
corded by Trisha Yearwood
and Don Henley in 1993.
Since then, Barnhill's songs
have been embraced by such
performers as Tim McGraw,
Amy Grant, Vince Gill, Lee
Ann Womack, and others.
Tickets are now on sale for
$40. Children under 12, ac-
companied by a ticket-hold-
ing adult, are admitted for
free. Tickets can be pur-
chased at Rosemary Beach,
or by calling 231-2900.
This concert is made pos-
sible through significant sup-
port from Looney Ricks Kiss
Architects, Continental Pa-
cific, Utility Solutions, Rose-
mary Beach Property Own-
ers Association, Justin

Mullet Festival. The money
raised from the sale will go
to Eglin charities.

In a letter to the editor of
the DeFuniak Herald, Gail
Powell of Santa Rosa Beach
contends, "Humans have be-
come the butchers of increas-
ingly threatened populations
of sharks around the world."
Citing a recent PBS docu-
mentary by Jean Michel
Cousteau, Powell said "hu-
Inans slaughter 100 to 200
million sharks" every year.
"The shark, one of the
most magnificent creatures
in the ocean, has been
around for about 400 million
years and was the top preda-
tor in the food chain of the
oceans until humans took
their place. Sharks are vital


Many local exhibiting art-
ists take classes locally
through OWC, PJC, UWF as
well as workshops all over
the country. This show will be
a unique way to see work cre-
ated in this context. ADSO
holds on-going classes &
workshops in acrylics, water-
colors, clay, and figure draw-
ing. Some of their recent
workshops have been with
national artists such as: Alan
Steinberg in clay, Linda
Blondheim in Alla Prima
Painting, and Mary
McShane in gesture drawing
and-painting.
The show will be held in
the Arts & Design Society's
First Street Art Center, 17
First St, SE, Ft. Walton
Beach, FL.

FROM FRONT


to maintain the health of
ocean ecosystems because
they act as the janitors. They
eat the smaller weaker fish
helping the stronger fish to
survive. By removing sharks
from the ocean in the gigan-
tic numbers that is occurring
today, there will be serious
consequences for the balance
of the oceans," Powell said.
Morse countered, saying,
"Everything about the tour-
nament will be revisited by
the museum's board of direc-
tors before planning for an-
other tournament next year.
Our boat captains showed a
lot of respect and we were
careful to follow all the rules
and regulations regarding
shark fishing and we have
been assured the shark popu-
lation in our local waters is
not at risk."
