Freeport looking at 7,500 lots



in residential developments


By BEN GRAFTON
At its meeting of Septem-
ber 28, Freeport City Engi-
neer Charles Peters told the
City Council that upon re-
view of recent history, he
found that there are 78 resi-
dential developments con-
taining approximately 7,500
lots in the project total for
Freeport. These numbers do
not include commercial de-
velopments.
Peters said that a Water
Management District Grant
has been approved for
projects that include a new
lift station, sewer lines and
a tertiary sewage treatment
facility.
Peters also reported that a
request for a Florida For
Ever Grant application is
under consideration to pro-
vide a facility to draiv water
from Four Mile Creek to use
for watering the sod areas of
playing fields in the new City
Park in the Hammock Bay
area.


Peters said that planning
and negotiations are pro-
gressing to provide water
from the North Bay System
to a development east of the
Choctaw Beach community.
An expansion of the North
Bay System will be neces-
sary to provide water for this
use.
Peters reported that Wal-
ton County Planning is work-
ing on a set of calculations of
traffic loading using the
Freeport calculation method.
The results will be compared
to calculations made using
the Walton County method.
The Freeport and Walton
County work group will re-
view the results and provide
recommendations for a com-
mon method to use for these
calculations.
The Council discussed pub-
lic hearings for a "Fair Share
Ordinance" which, to comply
with new Florida law, will
spell out details for funding
that developers will have to


provide to correct infrastruc-
ture deficiencies in areas
they propose to develop. The
Council is not sure how other
counties and cities intend to
handle this issue and would
like to get some feed-back
before taking formal action.
Tentative dates, subject to'
change, for the first and sec-
ond public hearings of this
ordinance are scheduled for
October 26 and November 4.
The Council approved a
motion to award the contract
for construction of the new
City Hall building to South-
ern Structures Corporation.
A motion to award bids to
handle administrative and
engineering proposals to
Jones Phillips & Associates
and to Peters Municipal As-
sociates was approved. This
work will be for a Commu-
nity Development Block
Grant to install sewer lines
to the Mallard Creek devel-
opment.
Brittany Stark, a member


of the Walton County 4H
Council asked the Council to
proclaim the week of October
1 to 7 as National 4H week
for the City of Freeport. She
said that in Walton County
there are seventeen 4H
Clubs serving some 100
youths. The Council has pre-
sented classes in a school en-
richment program. Subjects
have included speaking, ma-:
rine science and horticulture
among others. The Council
approved her request and
Mayor MiCKey Marse signed
an appropriate proclamation
of the event.
An announcement was
made that on October 10 at
10 a.m. there will be a rib-
bon cutting ceremony for
natural gas service in the
Freeport area by the
Okaloosa Gas District. The
Council approved a motion
that gives permission to
Okaloosa Gas to install a gas
light at City Hall in recogni-
tion of this event.


School board.


approves


budget, bids


By PATRICK CASEY
The Walton County School
Board met on Monday, Octo-
ber 2, at the Tivoli Adminis-
trative Complex to discuss a
variety of items including a
review of the new policies
and revisions that comprise
the district's official policy
manual.
Wayne Miller, supervisor of
administration and opera-
tions, updated board mem-
bers with a progress report of
current construction projects
that the county has on tap in
upcoming months. This in-
cluded an update on the Pax-
ton gymnasium construction'
that currently has pro-
gressed to the level of having
all the floor for all areas in
place. Steel erection is set to
begin soon at the sight as the
project is currently about a
month behind schedule.
Miller also stated that he is
awaiting the completion of
the spot survey for the site
of the new Walton High
School that is being planned.
Miller also updated board
members on current enroll-
ment numbers at
area schools as well as school
capacities.
Chief Financial Officer Jim
McCall presented the Walton
County School Board with
the 2006-07 official policy
manual. He said it had been
streamlined during the year
for more policy concurrency,
with revisions and an outside
review to bring the nine
chapter document up to cur-
rent implementation. The'


document, which was pre-
sented in a large binder, will
be posted online at a later
date. The public hearing,
was, not attended by much of
the public, as the document
passed on a 5-0 vote.
Sonny Nolin, personnel di-
rector for the Walton County
School District, presented
the board members with a
list of out-of-field teachers for
the current school year. The
district has 105 out-of-field
teachers, with a majority of
them being classified as such
due to lack of ESOL certifi-
cation. Only 41 of the 105
out-of-field teachers fall in a
category other than ESOL,
with a majority working on
their certification as reading
teachers for the newly-imple-
mented reading programs
the county is working on de-
veloping to help with reading
scores and initiatives.
Superintendent Carlene
Anderson commented that
the number of out-of-field
teachers is shrinking within
the county and that better
pay for teachers has helped
to attract teachers from out-
side the county with some
certifications that help fill
positions that are highly
needed.
The next regularly sched-
uled meeting of the Walton
County School Board will be
held on Monday, October 1r6,
at 5 p.m. at the TivoliAdmi.n-
istrative Complex.

2006-07 budget finalized


Commissioners cut $7.5+ million from budget


By DOTTY NIST
The Walton County Board
of County Commissioners
(BCC) gave their stamp of
approval this week for a
$137.5 million budget for the
new fiscal year.

The decision came on Sept.
25 following much comment,
at two public hearings, from
citizens and business people
strongly requesting ad valo-
rem tax relief.
In the end, the commission-
ers agreed to a one-half-mill
reduction from the ad valo-
rem tax rate originally pro-
posed for the 2006-07 fiscal
year, putting the finally-ap-
proved millage rate at 3.8481
mills.
The new millage rate ex-
ceeds the roll-back millage
rate by 9.71 percent. The roll-
back rate is the one that


would be required to collect
a comparable amount of ad
valorem taxes as in the 2005-
06 fiscal year.
One mill equals one dollar
per $1,000 of assessed prop-
erty value.
According to Walton
County Finance Director Bill
Imfeld, ad valorem taxes will
fund approximately 43 per-
cent of the total 2006-07 bud-
get and 47 percent of the op-
erations budget for the new
fiscal year.
Other sources of funding
for the budget include gas,
sales, and tourist taxes and
grants.
The approved 2006-07 bud-
get exceeds the 2005-06 bud-
get by $17.3. million, repre-
senting an approximate 14
percent increase.
The operations portion of
the 2006-07 budget comes to


$125.2 million, gs compared
with $101.4 million for the
2005-06 fiscal year.
/
On Sept. 2'5, the BCC'
looked at different options to
provide property owners
with tax relief.
Imfeld and a team of
county staff members had
been tasked with recommen-
dations that would save $3.2
million over the amount pro-
posed at the commissioners
initial budget hearing on
Sept. 11, in order to allow for
a quarter-mill reduction.
Among his suggestions
were removing $300,000 in
funding for the planned Se-
nior Center in DeFuniak
Springs, along with $400,000
funding for the Red Bay fire
station. These were some-
what controversial proposed
deletions.


When asked what reduc-
tions he and staff would sug-
gest to allow a half-mill re-
duction, Imfeld included the
elimination of all funding for
parks and boat ramps, a
$1.85 million expenditure,
half of funding for the Red-
fish Lake pedestrian bridge,
$1.5 million in funding for
Scenic Gulf Drive improve-
ments, $250,000 for planning
department operations, and
$100,000 for Walton County
Fire Rescue.

Among suggestions by citi-
zens were a hiring freeze,
elimination of salary in-
creases, putting off some
road paving projects, and
postponing replacing county
vehicles.
District 5 Commissioner
Cindy Meadows was strongly
in favor of the half-mill re-


duction. "It's more than
people wanting their taxes
reduced, it's our economy,"
she said.
District 2 Commissioner
Ken Pridgen agreed. "We
need to relieve the pressure
on the taxpayer," he urged.
Pridgen seconded a pro-
posal by Meadows that would
provide cuts necessary for
the half-mill reduction, in-
cluding the removal of a to-
tal $3 million from contin-
gency funds and reserves,
elimination of $1 million
land in land purchase funds,
elimination of half of pro-
posed funding for parks and
boat ramps, postponement of
the next phase of the Scenic
Gulf Drive improvement
project, and removal of $1
million in funding for imple-
mentation of S.B. 360 (the
state proportional fair share


legislation). The cuts totaled
over $7.5 million.
Meadows' motion to set the
3.8481 millage rate, incorpo-
rating her proposed cuts, was
approved in a 4-1 vote, with
County Commission Chair
Scott Brannon dissenting.
Brannon explained that his
disagreement was based on
the reduction in funding for
parks and boat ramps, which
his constituents have told
him are important to them,.'
The commissioners then
unanimously approved the
proposed $137.5 million bud-
get.
The new budget leaves in
place the proposed funding
for the Senior Center and the
Red Bay fire department.

The fiscal year 2006-07
budget will take effect on Oct.
1.

Brannon announces Red Bay improvements


By KEN LITTLE
WALTON COUNTY PIO
On Sept. 21, 2006, Walton
County Commission Chair
Scott Brannon, along with
members of the county staff,
held a well-attended commu-
nity meeting. The topic was
county planned improve-
ments for a new fire depart-
ment and park improve-
ments for the Red Bay
community. Fire Manager
Eddie Rivers presented con-
ceptual plans for a new Red


Bay fire station to the citi-
zens of the Red Bay commu-
nity.
Commissioner Brannon
addressed the crowd asking
for community input, and
presented the conceptual
plan for a new recreational
park at the community cen-
ter.
Brannon stated, "When I
was made aware of the plans
for a new fire department, I
asked that a park be incor-


porated into the plan. There
is a great need for a new park
for the people of the Red Bay
community." He added,
"These are only draft plans
and we are here to ask you
what you want and how you
want it to look. I would like
to incorporate some of the
area's local history for dis-
play that would reflect the
rich heritage of this commu-
nity and at the same time
provide a great park for all
of Walton County to enjoy."


The draft plans of the fire
station and park were left for
the public to review and
make suggestions.
Additional meeting dates
will be planned and an-
nounced in the near future
for public input.

Community Emergency

Response Team needs

volunteers


By JEFFREY POWELL
Catastrophes such as Hur-
ricane Katrina have proven
that communities cannot and
should not expect the federal
.government to respond to
their every need.
Therefore, Walton County
has established a Community
Emergency Response Team
(CERT) in an effort to better
cope with emergencies.
"I feel CERT volunteers
will play a vital role in case,,
of an emergency," said CERT
Coordinator Casey LaMarre.
LaMarre has been working
with CERT since August
through an Americorps Vista
grant, while studying for an,
emergency administrative
ni.:,nr3gemhit-t :csiuciate'- de-
gree'from Okaloosa-Walton
College. ....
"Casey is an asset to the
CERT program," said Emer-
gency Management Coordi-
nator Jeff McVay.. 'She has
been able to get the program
into the public eye."
CERT volunteers will be
trained by the Walton County
Emergency Response Divi-
sion and receive CERT kits
which include hard hats,
vests, first aid supplies, tools

its beautiful beaches.
The public is invited to the
Walton County' Heritage
Museum on Saturday, Oct.14
for an informal discussion of
tools and equipment that
were used on farms, for busi-
nesses, and in homes.
The museum's antique
tools and equipment will be
available for inspection, in-
cluding some items not cur-
rently on display. Partici-
pants are encouraged to
bring examples of unique
tools from their own collec-
tions, especially items not in
common use today.
Attendees will receive a
souvenir, booklet about the
"Tools of the Trades" in the
Heritage Museum collection.
Second Saturday Show &
Tell is a monthly program at
the museum that features
topics about the history
of Walton County. Admission
is free, and the content is
appropriate for all age
groups.
The Walton County Her-
itage Museum is located at
1140 Circle Drive in the his-
toric district of DeFuniak

and other needed items.
"Our volunteers will be
trained to prepare for, pre-
vent and respond to a variety
of situations," McVay said.
"We would like to train citi-
zens from our outlying com-
munities."
Once trained, CERT per-
sonnel may also be used to
supplement staffing at spe-
cial events such as parades
and fairs.
Citizens wanting informa-
tion concerning the CERT
program can reach Casey
LaMarre at 892-8065.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


PERSONAL COMMENTS



EDITOR'S COMMENT:




The Banished Art Of Conversation


By BRUCE COLLIER, Assistant Editor

Talking has never been easier. The technology grows like
bamboo in your backyard. From the ungainly'80s style shoe-
sized walkie-talkie phones, we have miniaturized and
slimmed down to the point where we can walk around hands
free, ears plugged, free to communicate with the known wired
world. If you believe the TV ads, we can even dance while
we do it, unless of course we step in front of a bus.
I do have a cell phone, a no-frills gray affair that I keep
around in case of emergencies. It does not play music be-
yond a slightly annoying ringtone, and if it can take pic-
tures it's been keeping them to itself.
I dislike long telephone conversations, unless it's with
people far away. Otherwise, if I want to talk to someone
across town, I try to make the effort to go across town and
talk face to face. Why? Because that's what used to be called
the art of conversation, and like most arts, it only survives
with practice. Otherwise, it dies, or becomes something else
entirely.
It hasn't died. Yet. It's been knocked down, but gets up
and marches on, only to be knocked down again. What keeps
knocking it down is us, we ourselves.
Remember the last time you took up a hobby? Maybe it
was golf, maybe crafting, or painting, or a musical instru-
ment. Most hobbies require a certain amount of initial capi-
tal outlay, for supplies, lessons, handbooks, helpful gadgets.
You find out what you need, go to the appropriate store or
website, and get geared up. And remember, less isn't more,

You sit down at the table, surrounded by your equipage,

Alas, your constitutional right to instant success isn't being
enforced. You need to practice, but that's just hard work.
Maybe you need something more high tech, more expen-
sive, flashier, then you'll get it right. Back to the store, back
online, maybe buy a t-shirt that proclaims you a golfer, a
crafter, a horn player. A few bumper stickers and a maga-
zine subscription can't hurt. Hey, there's a chat room! You
can get online and e-mail others who share your interest.
Before you know it you're like the kid on the day after

So it is with conversation. In its purest form, it requires
only the tools that God and your momma sent you into the
world with, a body and a voice. Find someone else with the
same equipment and, hey presto, you can converse. No fur-

and it can be done.

Dear Editor,

After Walton County executives and staffs expended much
effort and time scrubbing individual budget requests, the
budget director, Mr. Imfeld, presented the BCC with a solid
budget proposal. The budget presented had been thoroughly
scrutinized during workshops and reviewed, in its entirety,-
at least once by the BCC.
Unfortunately, this was not the budget that was adopted.
I say unfortunately because the budget that was adopted
did not have the advantage of close scrutiny to determine
the consequences of its adoption.
Speakers representing, basically, two groups, opposed the
originally proposed budget and the accompanying millage

flection, and intuition. Like Intel, it's inside, and it's called
your brain, or, if you want to get more poetic, your mind. A
mind is indeed a terrible thing to waste, but it's a ball to
take out for a spin. But you have to exercise it. As it is with
your car or your chain saw, so it is with your mind, "move,
lest ye rust."
That doesn't come from endless phone conversations with
disembodied voices, electronic reams of e-chat, or mindlessly
walking around listening to your own personally-crafted
soundtrack to the complete exclusion of your surroundings.
There's a person in my neighborhood who lives in a house
full of grown-ups, a couple of babies, and two dogs, yet 90
percent of the time I see her sitting on the porch with a
phone in her ear and a deadpan look on her face. With all
that real life around her, she prefers to be elsewhere.
So apparently, do many of us. Where we are is never where
we ,want to be, who we are with is not who we want to talk
to, and so, all those lovely tools we were gifted with will
eventually wither away from disuse.
If you live in DeFuniak Springs, you have seen what's
called the public opinion place, among other names. It's a.
gazebo near the railroad track on Baldwin Avenue. Most
times, it's full of a bunch of old guys. They sit around, gab,
and stare at passers-by. If they know you, they'll greet you.
If they don't know you, they'll greet you anyway. These guys
talk to each other, and they'll talk to you, too. Because that's
what we were made to do. But it requires practice, and face-
to-face practice at that.
Unless we learn to turn a few things off and make time
for what the '70s sages called "interpersonal communica-
tion," we might as well glass-in that gazebo and put up a
plaque, reading "extinct species."

Dear Editor,

As Floridians, our lives have been profoundly influenced
by citizens taking initiative to amend Florida's Constitu-
tion. Citizens have limited political terms, mandated smaller
classrooms, banned smoking in public places, required uni-
versal pre-K, limited property tax increases, required gov-
ernment in the sunshine, and capped state taxes. All were
issues that Tallahassee politicians refused to address.
Those same lobbyists and special interests which block
popular measures in Tallahassee now want to make it
harder for the people to petition for changes in the law. They
want to require a super-majority vote of 60 percent for the
people to amend the Constitution. Their effort, Amendment
3 on this year's ballot, is nothing more than' a naked power
grab by the special interests which dominate Tallahassee's
legislative halls.
The citizen's initiative process is already extremely diffi-
cult, but it is fair and the only recourse the people have
when Tallahassee's special interests block popular issues. I
know this from personal experience. I served in the Legisla-
ture for eight years. I watched tobacco companies bury bills
banning smoking in restaurants and workplaces. I saw leg-
islation for smaller classrooms get killed in backroom deals.
I know the hostility of most legislators to term limits. I've
witnessed big business crush efforts to raise the minimum
wage. I've seen how many elected representatives dislike
having to govern in the sunshine. I've heard the govern-
ment arguments against capping homeowner's property
taxes. None of these popular initiatives would have become
law if left to the Florida Legislature. Each took an impas-
sioned group of citizens petitioning their cause onto the bal-
lot to get their issue decided by the voters.
Amendment 3's supporters argue that they are simply
raising the bar without taking away the people's right to
decide. Under their logic, Save Our Homes, Universal Pre-
K, and caps on the amount of taxes the Legislature can raise
would have never become law, because each passed by a
simple majority vote of the people, not by a super-majority
vote Amendment 3 requires. The.very Constitution we live
under today passed in 1968 by 55 percent. If the special
interests behind Amendment 3 succeed, Florida will be the
only state to require a super-majority vote for citizen initia-
tives.
Amendment 3 is nothing more than a thinly veiled in-
sult to the voters of Florida. It sends the message that the
majority of Floridians don't know what is best for their state,
and that a minority of voters should be allowed to block
what the majority wants as law.
Floridians have a simple choice on November 7. They can
either vote to trust the politicians, lobbyists, and special
interests by voting for Amendment 3, or they can vote to
trust the people by voting against Amendment 3. I say trust
the people.

Dear Editor,

First and foremost, I want to express my appreciation for
your honesty and courage to tackle 'such subjects as
prescription prices and the Iraq situation. We live in Holmes
County where the local paper never dares to tread there.
Living on the Ponce de Leon side of the Choctawhatchee
River, we are excluded from most Bonifay and Holmes
County culture and politics. (I'm glad). We probably take 30
or 40 trips to Defuniak for every one to Bonifay.
Thursday's Herald had the Ivory-Billed Woodpecker fea-
ture that mentioned Walton and Washington counties four
times. We are following this bird search closely. No one I
know could canoe from Alabama through Holmes county in
one hour. The sightings are not even in Walton or Washing-
ton counties if published info is correct. Mr. M.C. Davis is a
hero of mine. Holmes County needs whatever publicity it
can get.

Editor,
I enjoyed a recent news story regarding skyrocketing prop-
erty insurance. I, too, chose to live in Fort Walton in 1961. In
1966, I purchased a farm north of Crestview because land
prices, taxes and insurance were lower. In 1986,1 I decided to
live in DeFuniak Springs because the land prices, taxes and
insurance were lower. In 2003, I purchased land north of
DeFuniak Springs because price, taxes and insurance were
lower. This present home was to be my final retirement home.
Insurance and taxes may force me out again. I have now
selected a small progressive town in lower Alabama. I will
buy vacant property in the event I need to "move" again.,
I wish to thank Florida State Representative Don Brown
for his concern over rising insurance costs. It is high time to
turn the insurance rates upside down. The homeowners who
live within the higher risk areas (coastal areas, flood zone
areas, low land) must pay the highest costs for the higher
risk areas. Gov. Jeb Bush recently appointed 15 state law-
makers to head up the "Insurance Reform" Committee. The
weather reports of the last 50 years will show the high-risk
areas and simply class those areas into the worse to the
least risk. This is the fairest and most honest way I know.
First, let's have a news story exposing all state govern-
ment office holders showing who received election contribu-
tions from insurance companies and insurance corporations.
Second, every candidate running for election in Novem-
ber is to make a commitment to the press assuring the pub-
lic they are for fair/honest pricing of insurance coverage. To
be honest, no candidate for public office should accept any
campaign funds from any kind of corporation or business.
The present system is broken and it must be replaced with
an honest way to do business. The higher rates are going to
have a major impact on all homeowners- and there will be
many who will lose their homes. It's a sad state of affairs
and greed by the Insurance companies is what brought this
all about. Enough said, thank you Rep. Don Brown, now
turhnthe heat up, the people really need you!. ,

Editor,
I also am a concerned citizen, and was very upset when I
read the letter last week concerning the crematorium. It
appeared to be a direct hit on the integrity of two of the
most caring and loving people ever to be involved in funeral
operations.
Clary-Glenn Funeral Home is an established business, and
since cremation has become an increasingly, popular alter-
native, it seems only fitting that funeral homes should be
making it available to the families they serve.
Anyone saying that the Glenn family asking for a vari-
ance to make this possible is self-serving, must hot have
ever used their funeral home for services. They not only are
loving and caring, but keep in touch afterwards to see how
the families are, and offer grief seminars to cope with your
loved one's death. Does this sound like ludicrous, self-serv-
ing people? No! It sounds like people who care enough to
make the time as easy for the families as possible, that the
family member is taken care of by the business they have
chosen, not to be shipped back and forth during burial.
As far as clean air goes I work in a business less than a
half mile from the current crematorium, and we have seen
the white smoke coming from the smoke stack. It is disturb-
ing to see, but so are funeral processions. We have never
smelled any odor, but I'm sure the houses on Park Avenue
and the surrounding streets that have fireplaces produce
more smoke, and they definitely have a smell. Also, I don't
know if anyone took notice that when the crematorium was
being built on N. Hwy. 83, no one seems to care about the six
schools that are within a half-mile of the crematorium:
Roehm Pre-School, Cornerstone Pre-School, Kids Club, (all
childcare centers), Maude Saunders Elementary, Walton
High School, and Walton Vo-Tech. I guess someone forgot
about all these children, and to ask their families?
As far as the Historic District is concerned, people are
directed by signs from 331, down Live Oak Street, to view
the Christmas lights, and there is the unsightly reminder
of the battle between the city and the First Baptist Church,
when a historic home was torn down to build a parking lot,
and two historic houses turned into pre-schools. What hap-
pened to the laws in that case?
How many crematoriums does DeFuniak need? Well, how
many funeral homes do we need? We did not see The Glenn's
kicking up their heels when Jerry Evans put in his funeral


home, and he too, may want to put in a crematorium, as
well, to serve his customers, I say that is his business.
Then we, the good people of DeFuniak Springs, can bar-
gain shop. Laws are made to be changed and rearranged,
and for an established business to ask for a variance to serve
their customers better, is a good reason to change.
Joel and Paula Glenn are pastors in a church, volunteer
in PTO, announce football games for our high school and a
million other things (for sake of space, I won't name them
all) but ludicrous, self-serving, NO! I think not! And, I also
think it's a sad day when people cannot write a letter and
state their opinion, without being slanderous. The Glenn's
are loving, compassionate and wonderful business people,
wanting to offer all alternatives of burial to their custom-
ers; not just one business trying to monopolize the market.

THE FISEL FAMILY: Dwayne, Star, and DJ.


Here's the Beefi


By Robin Newton
Beef O'Brady's Sports Pub
will be opening in DeFuniak
Springs in less than two
months. For those of you who
have never had the pleasure
of dining in one of these fine
establishments, let me en-
lighten you. This is a sports-
based, family-oriented pub, a
gathering place for the pub-
lic. In this case, it is the
dream of Dwayne and Star
Fisel of DeFuniak Springs.
Some of you may know
Dwayne and his wife, Star.
Star is a prison classification
officer at the Walton County
Correctional Institution and,
up until his retirement in
May of 2005, Dwayne was a
Corrections Officer Colonel
at the same facility. The
family moved -to DeFuniak
from Lake City, Florida, in
July of 1996.
The Fisels have settled into
the area over the past ten
years and decide' to raise
their family here as well.
Son, DJ, attends Walton
Middle School.
"'This is all about family,"


says Dwayne. "I want a place
where families can come in
and share a meal-and have
fun."
Fun, in a restaurant? Ab-
solutely. In this restaurant,
there will be 34 television
sets. There will be a 15-inch
TV in each of the ten booths,
sixteen 27- inch and three 35-
inch ones on the walls, a 56-
inch one in each of the front
corners and, yes, a 20-inch
one in each restroom. If that
is not enough, there is also a


game room filled with at least
six video games where kids
will be able to hang out and
play.
Why .Beef O'Brady's?
Dwayne and his wife were
searching for an enterprise-
that would suit their tastes,
as well as serve the commu-
nity. He says the corporate
office's strong family orienta-
tion convinced him that Beef
O'Brady's was the right way
to go. The project began in
December of 2004 and has
now turned into a half-mil-
lion dollar restaurant that
encompasses 3,200 square
feet and will employ thirty
people from cooks, to host/
hostess, wait staff, and food
runners. Dwayne is hoping to

completed the Beef O'Brady's
training program in May of
2005. He worked at a Beef
O'Brady's in D'Iberville, Mis-
sissippi. After completing his
six- week training and pass-
ing his test, he did not sit
around and wait to open his
store. When Katrina hit last
September, the corporate of-
fice called and asked if he
would come back to help re-
open the restaurant. He said
he gladly obliged and that
restaurant was the first one
opened after the storm and
the only one open in
D'Iberville for a month. The
community was so pleased to
have a restaurant open that
no one complained about the
shortened hours (11 a.m. 6
p.m.) because of the curfew.
Since then, Dwayne goes
back to work in the
D'Iberville store 2-3 weeks a
month.
Star has been working ev-

Beverly Grimditch


probation revoked


By BRUCE COLLIER
Beverly Grimditch, who
faces a charge of DUI homi-
cide in Santa Rosa County,
has been sentenced to serve
15 years in the Florida De-
partment of Corrections for
an offense committed in Wal-
ton County in 2005.
At an Oct. 3 hearing,
Judge Kelvin Wells revoked
Grimditch's probation in Wal-
ton County and imposed the
15-year sentence.
Grimditch was on proba-
tion in Walton County at the
time 'of the alleged Santa
Rosa offense. Grimditch was
given probation in 2005 on
charges of DUI and fleeing
and eluding law enforcement
officers.
In June, 2006, Grimditch
was again involved in a high-
speed chase, this time in
Milton, which ended with her
vehicle crashing into the roof
of a residence, killing Chris


Villar. Grimditch was also
injured.
Both Grimditch and Villar,
as well as Villar's fiancee, had
family present at the revo-
cation hearing. The judge's
decision to revoke left both
families in a highly emotional
state as they left Walton.
County courthouse.


reportedly admitted his in-
volvement, and investigators
believe that other persons
may also be involved.
Wilson has been booked on
a charge of making written


threats "to kill or do bodily
injury." Wilson is said to have
denied "any ill intention to-
wards students or staff."
Additional arrests are re-
portedly pending.

rate. One group, who had voluntarily invested in an over
heated housing market that was now on a down turn, was
looking for the mitigation of their losses. The Walton County
Tax Payers Association (WCTPA) wanted an additional one-
quarter mill, for a full one half mill, reduction in the rate. It
is of interest to note that in the past thirty-eight years the
rate has never been as low as the current one.
Other than calling for a reduction of the millage, none of
the speakers offered viable suggestions as to how to accom-
plish those things committed to by the BCC.
To stay on track for completion of the fourteen-year pav-
ing program, six-year fire program etc. will require the gen-
eration of an additional three million dollars each year. Sug-
gestions by the WCTPA to delay and move expenditures into
the out years ignores the high probability of reduced rev-
enue in those out years due to a drop in property values.
Their suggestions regarding personnel hiring may
have some credibility. In the opinions of some, the former
Public Works director made some unwise decisions in this
area. Some of those decisions did not involve new hires and
it does not provide a foundation upon which to decide cur-
rent or future personnel needs.
Moving funds from reserves brings into play a double-
edged sword. It takes reserves to a level below that which is
required to support our bond rating. This reduces our abil-
ity to borrow money, should it become necessary, at a favor-
able interest rate. Additionally, it is a one-time funding

source and when used to support an operation, provides no
funding for continuing, year-to-year, operation. Many
statements began with "in my opinion" or "I would do such
and so." Individuals who had no responsibility for perfor-
mance or for the failure to perform and apparently little
understanding of county operational elements made these
statements.
There are those that do not recognize that the county is
decades behind in infrastructure needs, probably, not
among them, are those who have waited twenty years or
more for their road to be paved. When all of the roads have
been paved there will be other infrastructure needs coming
down the pike. The need to create an additional potable
water source and waste disposal will be among these. It
would be gratifying to see these vocal groups, who presume to
speak for the entire .county, address their complaints to
the regulatory agencies who are responsible for much of our
operating costs.
It is puzzling to me when an organization that has nit-
picked at such things as the 'cost of placing county logos on
vehicles can be accepting of a $300,000 inclusion for a facil-
ity that promises to provide programs already available in
the county; in diverse locations, and programs that have
failed to gain participation by the public in the past.
The WCTPA has been prompt to claim credit for gaining a
one half-mill reduction in the adopted millage rate. The
question is: will they be as prompt to claim credit, two years
from now, when exigencies require an increase in the rate?

They have selected an array
of labor and employment top-

The MRI breast coil helps
isolate the breast tissue to
,enhance the MRI image, al-

inside the breast without
having to perform surgery or
compress the breast, as in a
mammogram.
Each exam produces hun-

"Early detection with regu-

monthly self breast exams
helps to identify cancers at
earlier stages when treat-
ments are more effective and
curable," explained Dr.
Joanne Bujnoski, radiation
oncologist.
In addition to the breast
coil, Sacred Heart imple-
mented a new minimally in-
vasive breast biopsy system.
The Automated Tissue Exci-

System, guided by an ultra-
sound imaging system, is a


fast, safe and simple tissue
collection method that typi-
cally takes only a few min-
utes to complete. Most
women resume normal daily
activities immediately fol-
lowing the procedure.
Both of these procedures
are currently available at Sa-

A Florida Peanut Festival


Most northwest Floridians
are aware of the National
Peanut Festival that is held

plications of cancer at the age
of 19.

for families throughout
northwest Florida and south

crafters, antiques and dis-
plays, hayrides, pony rides,

The Keys t f living easy


By LEIGH STRICKLAND
Connected to the mainland
by over 120 miles of bridge
and highway, the Florida
Keys are easily accessible
by car and traveling into that
world awards visitors an
abundance of exotic sights.
There, iguanas the size
of small dogs sunbathe on
the side of the road and dol-
phins swim up to the water's
edge to greet people.

EVEN IF YOU don't swim with them, the dolphins at
Grassy Key's Dolphin Research Center come close to land
to see you.


On Big Pine Key, tiny Key deer, an endangered and shrunken version of the familiar
animal, roam free and approach cars with little reserve. It's the only place in Florida
to see the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico at the same time, the only place
where on a calm day, both bodies of water appear nearly still from land.
The Keys are also a place in which some of the best views come from looking into the
past. In 1912, Henry Flagler completed a railroad connecting Miami to Key West.
Pieces of this "Eighth Wonder of the World" still remain. This railroad was just one
casualty of the 1935 Labor Day Hurricane that took nearly 700 lives and was more
intense than Hurricanes Andrew and Katrina. A monument to those dead, The
Hurricane Memorial, stands on Upper Matecumbe Key to this day.

Alargaritaxville. Mile markers count down the distance from Ke\ Largo to Key West
over engineering marvels that connect the islands, to Mile Marker 0, off the main
road in Key West, Duval Street.


A MINIATRUE KEY DEER stops to graze by the side
of the road on No Name Key.
If nothing else, it's easy to relax and enjoy the laidback attitude of the islands. It is a place
where little is as important as fishing and there's no good excuse to worry. A constant sea
breeze keeps temperatures from becoming oppressive, even in the summer, and the water is
always welcoming for boaters and swimmers alike.
It's strange there, but beautiful, a beauty that, once seen, can never be forgotten. In this
magical place, one can find the keys to easy living without ever leaving the state of Florida.

your fingers That's why The American Cancer Society recommends mammogram
screenings every year for all women age 40 and over That's why, during the month
of October, mammograms will be provided to those of you without insurance

Red Hat Dollffies of Deuniak


Springs meet for

The Red Hat Dollies of De-
Funiak Springs met in Sep-
tember for lunch at Yamato's
Restaurant in Fort Walton
Beach.
The ladies were enter-
tained by the quick-hand art-
istry of the Oriental chef as
he cooked each of their meals
Hibachi-style at the table.
Knives and other cooking
implements were twirling
and flying and eggs were be-
ing tossed in the air and
caught on the edge of the
spatula in order to break
them. Onion volcanoes were
doused with vodka and then
set afire to the amazement
and amusement of the Red
Hat ladies.
Officially welcomed were
several new members, Ellen
Hansen, Jera Scott, Martha
Willbanks, and Florence
Young.
After lunch, various activi-,
ties and games were played.

In Loving Memory
of my granddaughter,
Brandi Waggoner

I've got these burning
sands to cross over
And a few more rivers
deep and wide;
One more hill to go over;
And a mountain covered
with snow.
One more hill to go over;
And a mountain covered
with snow.
I know our loved one
is sleeping;
Beneath that
great mountain of snow;
I know I'm going to make it.
Just as she wanted it to be
Because I know she is sleeping;
And her cares have all passed away.
One more hill to go over;
And a mountain covered with snow.
I know our loved one is sleeping;
Beneath that great mountain of snow.
It was God's will to take her;
And we may never know the reason why;
But we know she's at peace and is sleeping
Beneath that great mountain of show.
One more hill to go over;
And a mountain covered with snow.
I know our loved one is sleeping.
Beneath that great mountain of snow.


Time Flew By
By: Kirstyn Burch


Already a year has come to pass,
Time flew by, it's gone so fast.
The disbelief of your fate still remains,
Though by now time has
helped to numb the pain.
All our lives are different now,
You're no longer around;
And I'm still not sure just how
I make it through each day,
With a smile on my face.
No one can take your place in our hearts.,
For that spot's all yours,
It has been from the start.
Though your time by our sides was short,
Your memory lives on as our sat'lst port.
For our love for you will never be gone,
But it's time to accept that life goes on
Already a year has come to pass,
Time flew by. It's gone so fast....

Message From Heaven















It is always good to remember moments in our lives
The things we see and the people we meet
Some are beautiful and some are sweet
Some are ugly and some are bitter sweet
No matter who or what the memory may be
it is most important that you remember me
I am a person with beauty not only skin deep
I am a person with inner beauty
from my head to my feet
I am a person with the ability to make you smile
no matter if it be here on earth
or from the heavenly miles
Keep me deep in your heart keep me dear in your mind
and I promise you my friend I will continue to shine
Never forget the smiles we have shared.,
the good times and laughter
And even our fears
Take care of my family, my mother, my brother, my
father and friends
And,'always remember we will meet again
You cannot see my face or hear my voice but close your
eyes and feel me with you for evermore.
I love you all,
Brandi Waggoner

BCan You Sleep While The Wind Blows
By Dr. Charles Satterwhite
Pastor, Freeport UMC

Years ago, a farmer owned land along the Atlantic seacoast.
He constantly advertised for hired hands. Most people were re-
luctant to work on farms along the Atlantic. They dreaded the
storms that raged across the Atlantic, wreaking havoc on the
buildings and crops.
As the farmer interviewed applicants for the job, he received
a steady stream of refusals. Finally, a short, thin man, well past
middle age, approached the farmer. "Are you a good farm hand?"
the farmer asked him. "Well, I can sleep when the wind blows,"
answered the little man.
Although puzzled by his answer, the farmer hired him. The little
man worked well around the farm, busy from dawn to dusk,
and the farmer felt satisfied with his work.
One night the wind howled loudly offshore. Jumping out of
bed, the farmer grabbed a lantern and rushed to the hired man's
sleeping quarters. He shook him and yelled, "Get up! A storm
is coming! Tie things down before they blow away!" The little
man rolled over in bed and said firmly, "No sir. I told you, I can
sleep when the wind blows."
Enraged by his response, the farmer wanted to fire him on
the spot. Instead, he hurried outside to prepare for the storm.
To his amazement, he discovered that the haystacks were cov-
ered with tarpaulins. The cows were in the, barn, the chickens
in the coops, and the doors barred. The shutters were tightly
secured. Everything was tied down.
Nothing could blow away. The farmer understood what his
hired hand meant, so he returned to his bed to sleep while the
wind blew.
When you're prepared, spiritually, mentally, and physically,
you have nothing to fear. Can you sleep when the wind blows
through your life? The hired hand in the story was able to sleep
because he had secured the farm against the storm. We secure
ourselves against the storms of life by grounding ourselves in
the Word of God. We ,don't need to understand, we just need to
hold His hand to have peace in the middle of storms.
We begin each Sunday with Sunday School 9 a.m.;
Worship 10 a.m. We are proud sponsors of Angel Food
Ministries.

The Pattons celebrate a lifetime of love


By LEIGH STRICKLAND
In a quiet rural community
just south of the Alabama
state line, Mabel and D. H.
Patton celebrated their 70th
wedding anniversary on
Tuesday, October 3.
The pair were introduced
by friends in North Carolina.
Mabel said, "He was raised at
High Pointe. I was an orphan.
I didn't get to live with my
brothers and sisters. I got a
job in a full-fashion hosiery
mill and that's where I met
him. He was working in the
sock division.
"I met him when I was 16,
married him when I was 17.
We went ',m our town to
D.: T1 VA. A lot of people
went there, '-:U.,- couples.
\%. went over there and got
our I.... I 't.', id. ''W ho
would you 'I, to have pre-
, the ceremony?' Right
quick I said, 'A preacher.' I
wasn't a t'hri-Ii n, but I
wanted a preacher. They sent
us to a Baptist preacher and
we were married in his liv-
ing room. He said, 'Now you


may kiss the bride and go
home and get your whippin'.'
He thought we'd run away.
"We married in 1936. This
has been 70 years and it's
been happy years. We've had
a good life."
Looking back on their lives,
the Pattons' fondest memo-
ries are of the work they've
done with various churches.
"Those are good memories,"
Mabel said. "People've been
so good to us. There's just
been a lot of good things hap-
pen in our life."
D. H., now 91 years old, is a
retired pastor. "My whole life
has lived practically in the
Lord's work, preaching the
gospel, pastoring churches
and things of that nature.
God has given us a good life
together. I have enjoyed ev-
ery bit of it."
The couple has lived in sev-
eral states in the eastern
U.S., starting churches and
preaching in North Carolina,
West Virginia, Virginia, and
Florida. They settled in the
Christian Life Village, a
campground and retirement

Mabel said, "We've enjoyed
living here. It's quiet."
They have no children, but
Mabel said, "We have a lot of
spiritual children."
In a word of advice to
younger couples, Mabel said,
"They always told me if you


get married and it doesn't
work, 'If your bed's hard, lay
in it.' If you marry, make up
your mind you're going to
stay married. Be sure when
you get married, it's some-
body who believes like you do
and is congenial."

The Ol' Fishin' Store: Nick's


Seafood Market opens in Freeport


By BRUCE COLLIER
People who follow this sort
of thing will know that
nearly every fresh seafood
market in Walton County is
located in the south part. Fish
and shellfish can be pur-
chased in some north Walton
County grocery stores, but it
is often previously frozen or
just plain still frozen.

Trey Nick, owner of a long-
established seafood restau-
rant on Hwy. 20, has decided
to split the difference. Nick's
Seafood Market opened for
business in Freeport on Sept.
20. Lying midway between
north and south, Nick's fills
a niche left open by the de-
parture of Freeport's Mer-
maid seafood market some
years ago.
Nick and market manager
Brad Burnette are getting
ready to open on what they
hope will be a busy Monday.


Nick's is open Monday
through Friday from 11 a.m.
- 7.p.m, and Saturday and
Sunday from 10 a.m. 6 p.m.
The market sits just off of
Hwy 331, in 331 Plaza. Like
all seafood markets, Nick's
posts a brightly colored sign
near the road, and like all
good seafood markets, smells
of constant cleaning, not fish.
At this point, the store is
still rather sparsely fur-
nished. A board on one wall
has handwritten lists of
what's available and what it
costs. A few shelves contain
boxes of spices, shrimp or
crab boil mixes, and sauces.
The real star, of course, is
the refrigerated counter, di-
vided into sections. Each is
filled with a mound of
crushed ice and carefully ar-
ranged fresh fish.
Among the items on dis-
play are shrimp in several
sizes, ready-to-peel boiled


shrimp, trigger, grouper,
snapper, lump crab meat, and
whole or cleaned mullet.
Each is labeled with name
and price.
There's a back room area,
where whole fish is cleaned
and made ready for sale. Nick
says everything is bought off
of boats or caught and
cleaned by himself and his
employees.
Nick says they have some
300 crab traps in'
Choctawhatchee Bay, and
four boats serving the restau-
rant and the market. He and
his family deal with a num-
ber of longstanding fisher-
men and suppliers, both in
the restaurant and market.
Nick's sells retail and
wholesale, and is gearing up
for the coming of oyster sea-
son. Old-time wisdom says
never to eat oysters in
months without the letter "r,"
but Nick says that oysters
are safe to eat all year. He
adds, however, that "they just
seem better in winter
months, fatter, better tast-
ing."
Burnette says that a rush
of sales left Nick's tempo-
rarily sold out of oysters, but
that more are on the way. He
advises calling ahead for oys-
ters, which are sold in bags,
bushels, and boxes of various


sizes and prices. Shucked oys-
ters are also offered.
The wall board also notes
frog legs and alligator. The
latter comes from farms or
plants that process alligators
taken by permitted hunters.
Nick notes that the govern-
ment seafood inspectors have
become more strict, and the
public has become better edu-
cated about safety in buying
and preparing fish. Reports of
illness from eating raw sea-
food had led to a drop in sales
in the past few years, but
sales are back on the rise,
says Nick.
Burnette shows a tag from
a bag of oysters. The tag in-
dicates where the shellfish
were taken and when. Nick's
sells only Appalachicola Bay
oysters. Government inspec-
tors keep watch on bacteria
count in oyster bed waters.
Hurricanes can have a
"good and bad effect" on oys-
ter beds, says Nick. The
churning water can damage
beds, but can also "rejuve-
nate" old silt-covered beds.
"It livens them up," he
says.
Nick's also intends to sell
mullet roe, a local favorite,
and Gulf rock shrimp, which
a lot of people call and ask
about. Nick's only sells roe
from mullets that they catch


POISED TO SELL FISH are (I r), manager Brad Burnette
and owner Trey Nick, at Nick's Seafood Market in Freeport.


themselves. The season for
mullet roe is from September
through November.
Burnette and Nick both
say that Nick's plans to offer
some premade items, such as
smoked fish dips, house-
blended spices and seafood
sauces, and gumbo. Nick says
that eventually he would like
to offer customers a selection
of wines to go with the sea-
food.
. Though Nick's has only
been open about two weeks,
both Nick and Burnette are
talking of expansion, declin-.


ing to specify where and
when. A website is in the
works, and the store will be
able to ship as well as pack
for traveling customers.
In the meantime, says
Nick, "we're here for the lo-
cals. Locals make or break
you."
"Freeport is an old fishing
village," says Nick, who grew
up there. "I want that fishing
atmosphere."
Nick's Seafood Market is
located in 331 Plaza, Suite 10,
at 15890 Hwy. 331 North,
Freeport.


FRESH ON ICE and ready for sale are assorted shrimp
and fish at Nick's Seafood in Freeport.


FREEPORT LIONS CLUB now has more of the 2006 his-
toric calendars available. The price is.$5 each. Call 835-2613.

WALTON QUARTERBACK TERRELL BRAMLETT
DEVIN GIBSON PICKS UP SOME much needed yards catches a high snap from his center. He snagged the ball
for Walton. The Braves fell to Williston, 35-34. and picked up a few more yards for the Braves.



Williston outlasts Walton 35-34


By PATRICK CASEY
The Walton Braves came
up one point shy for the sec-
ond time this season as the
Williston Red Devils edged
the host squad 35-34 in an
offensive shootout at Everett
Yates Memorial Stadium.
Walton got off to a fantas-
tic start as the Braves scored
the first 13 points of the
game. Walton took the open-
ing kickoff and marched 58
yards in seven plays as
Alex Smith hauled in a 37-
yard scoring strike from
sophomore quarterback
Tarrell Bramlet to give Wal-,.
ton a 7-0 lead. Walton added
another score to the contest
when Williston fumbled and
linebacker Devin Gibson
scooped up the loose football
and raced untouched 65
yards for a 13-0 lead.
Williston woke up after
that as the Red Devils used
a pounding running game to


score a pair of touchdowns,
both on one-yard dives by
fullback Travis Evans.
Williston got their own defen-
sive score as Bramlet mis-
fired on a short pass and line-
backer Corey Days inter-
cepted the ball and returned
it 29 yards for a touchdown.
Walton rallied from the 21-
13 halftime deficit as the
Braves held the Red Devils
on downs on Williston's
opening possession of the
second half, then quickly
drove 64 yards in six plays
with Bramlet earning the
touchdown on a one-yard
quarterback keeper to cut the
lead to 21-19.
Walton stopped Williston
on their next possession, but
disaster struck the Braves on
the first snap from their own
20-yard line as Bramlet
fumbled the center exchange
and Williston pounced on
the football. On the next play,
Williston junior quarterback

FREEPORT LITTLE LEAGUE announces its election and
general membership meeting to be held on October 11 at
the "Old Post Office building" starting at 6:30 p.m. Board
members will be up for election and other business will be
discussed concerning the 2007 season.
Anyone concerned about the Little League program should

at 835-4041 or Charles Simmons at 835-5198.


Devon Timmons hit senior
wideout Jiwan James on a
19-yard scoring strike to
lengthen the lead to 28-19.
After an exchange of punts,
Walton got a big play from
Alex Smith as he turned a
short pass into a 64-yard
score to cut the lead back to
28-26.
Walton's defense couldn't
stop the Red Devils as they
responded with a nine play,
59-yard drive that Timmons
capped off with a 3-yard run
to increase the lead to 35-26.
Walton would not give up
as the Braves marched 71
yards to get back into the
contest as Alex Smith, who
caught seven passes for 162
yards and three touchdowns,
completed the hat trick with
a 15-yard grab. Smith also
caught a pass from Bramlet
on the 2-point conversion
to cut the lead to 35-34 with
just over two minutes to play.
On the ensuing kickoff,
Williston appeared to fumble
the football at the end of the
play, only to have the side
judge overrule the call and
give the ball back to Williston
at their own 42-yard line.
Walton was not to be denied
the ball, however, as three
plays later Deron Hogans
picked off an errant Timmons
pass to give Walton the foot-


ball at their own 43- yard line
with 3:42 to play.
Bramlet got sacked on first
down for an 11-yard loss to
put the Braves in a hole, then
misfired on a 4th-and-21 play
as Courtney Days picked off
,his pass to effectively end the
game. Williston picked up
one first down from that
point, and ran out the clock
to escape with a 35-34 win.
"It was a tough loss, but the
guys fought hard and never
quit," Coach Lenny
Jankowski commented, as
the as the Braves dropped to
2-3 on the season. "We
showed improvement, but
still have things to work on."
Walton will host South Wal-
ton(1-5) on Friday, October 6,
at 7 p.m. at Everett Yates
Memorial Stadium.

Ron Burns ran for 159
yards as West Gadsden used
three long second half
drives to break a 21-21 tie
and capture a 31-21 District
1, Class A win over the Free-
port Bulldogs.
The game started as a high
scoring affair as Freeport
took the opening kickoff
and drove 67 yards in ten
plays to take a 7-0 lead on
senior quarterback Lloyd
Anderson's one-yard run.
The lead lasted only 17 sec-
onds as Ronnie Jackson
fielded the ensuing kickoff
and raced 75 yards for the
tying score for the West
Gadsden Panthers.
Midway thru the second
quarter West Gadsden went
on their first scoring drive of
the game as the Panthers
capped a 60-yard drive with
a 1-yard plunge by fullback
Chris Williams for a 14-7
lead.
Freeport responded with a
march of their own as it took
the Bulldogs only six plays to
move 66 yards as Drew
Farris raced in from 17 yards
out to cut the deficit to 14-13
after a failed two-point con-
version try.
West Gadsden,. which cel-
ebrated Homecoming festivi-,
ties on the night, immedi-
ately responded with a 5-
play, 75-yard drive that saw
Ronnie Jackson race in from
31 yards out for a 21-13 ad-
vantage.
Freeport needed only one
play to even the contest as
Farris raced in from 52
yards out to cut the lead, to
21-19 with just over two min-


and Gainesville's Oak Hall
after discovering two of its
players are ineligible. In the
process of double-checking
paperwork with the FHSAA,
JPII athletic director Pam
Shovlain was told the play-
ers did not qualify for a
specific academic contract for
athletes that fall below a 2.0.
The school will get to keep a
forfeit win from Apalachicola,
who decided not to field a
team this season.

half. Joey Seibert added the
two-point conversion run to
even the score at the half.
West Gadsden held the ball
for nearly six minutes on
their opening possession of
the second half, but was
forced to punt the football
from the Freeport 40-yard
line. That didn't turn out well
for the Bulldogs, as they
started their first possession
of the second half from their
own 8-yard line and were
promptly stopped in three
plays without a first down.
Anderson punted from his
own 10-yard line and Burns
took advantage with a 17-
yard punt return that saw
the Panthers set up shop at
the Bulldogs 26-yard line.
Seven plays later Chris Wil-
liams crashed in from the
one-yard line with just mo-
ments left in the third quar-
ter to give West Gadsden a
28-21 lead.
After a Freeport punt, the
Panthers moved the ball
from their own 20-yard line,
with the aid of a key rough-
ing the punter call, to the
Freeport 19-yard line only to
be stopped by the Freeport
defense. The Panthers de-
cided to try a 37-yard field
goal to put the game out of
reach with .3:25 remaining,
and the magic of Homecom-
ing was on their side as the
ball just cleared the uprights.
Freeport mounted a des-
peration drive, but Anderson
was picked off at the
West Gadsden 20-yard line
with just over a minute to
play to end the threat.
The loss was potentially
fatal for the Freeport Bull-
dogs playoff hopes as the
squad falls to 2-3 overall and
0-2 in district play. Freeport
still has four district games
to play, but may need some
help to get into the playoffs
from some of their district


for a district win, as the Bull-
dogs will host the Jay Royals
on Friday, October 6, at 7
p.m. at Bulldog Field. Jay,
which may be Freeport's big-


having a rough season of
their own as the squad is 0-3
in the district, and would love
to drop Freeport to that mark
on Friday.

Freeport High School


The 3rd-5th graders at
Freeport Elementary School
visited the Freeport High
School classroom of Mr. Ted
Missildine on Wednesday,
Sept. 27.
The students were treated
to interesting and informa-
tive demonstrations and ex-
periments. They were in-
volved in testing to see which
orange juice had the most
pulp and what cleanser
would clean pennies the best.

in preparation for the school's
annual Science Fair, Oct. 30

This informative and some-
times humorous method of
exposing the students to sci-

an interest in science and
motivated the students to get

WMS

joins

statewide

read
By BRUCE COLLIER
Last Thursday some 625
students of Walton Middle
School (WMS)'s sixth, sev-
enth, and eighth grade
classes gathered to take a
shot at the record book.
The Guinness Book of
World Records, to be precise.
As part of the Reading in the
Arts program sponsored by
Governor and Mrs. Jeb Bush,
the students read aloud from
"Peter and the Starcatchers,"
by Dave Barry and Ridley
Pearson.
Students all over the state
read the same passage from
the same book at the same
time, a "read-in" overseen by
the governor and the authors,
who could be viewed on tele-
vision by the students.
The specific Guinness
record category is "most
people reading simulta-
neously at multiple loca-
tions."
The sixth-graders gath-
ered in the cafeteria, seventh-
graders in a courtyard out-
side, and the eight grade took
the gym.
Also in attendance were
Walton County School Super-
intendent Carlene Anderson,
Judge Kelvin Wells, Supervi-
sor of Elections Bobby
Beasley, WMS reading direc-
tor Dr. Dale Yount, and WMS
principal Russell Hughes.
The statewide reading be-

Bobby Beasley (left) and
Carlene Anderson at Walton
Middle School.


gan at 11:25 EST. The one-
page excerpt was from chap-
ter 11 of this "prequel" to the
legendary story of Peter Pan.
"Peter and the


Starcatchers" is the story of
how Peter Pan first met his
arch-enemy Captain Hook.
Co-author Dave Barry is
the Pulitzer Proze-winning
humorist and former newspa-
per columnist. Ridley
Pearson has written a num-
ber of suspense and thriller
novels.
At the conclusion of the
reading, the students gave a
cheer, then returned to class
while observers tallied up
the official count of partici-
pants for Florida's submis-
sion to Guinness. Hughes
said they had verified 625
participating student read-


ers. Every middle school in
Walton County reportedly
participated in the group
reading.
Yount had a copy of the
book. "A lot of the students
want to read it now," she said.
"And it's a fairly long book."
In addition to the group
reading, the state has spon-
sored several contests in con-
nection with the book, for best
illustration, essay, and video.
The contest is called
"Florida's Journey into
Neverland."

Stewart storms
back in Kansas

By CHUCK HINSON
With the needle past empty
for several laps around the
track, Tony Stewart knew he
needed to maintain the
course to get the win. With
nothing else to loose and al-
ready out of the race for the
championship, he and his
crew pushed forward and got
the Sunday win at the Ban-
quet 400 at Kansas Speed-
way.
For other racers, Nextel
Cup champion hopeful
Jimmie Johnson, decided to
break for some fuel with only
four laps to go until the fin-
ish. But to his and his crew's
surprise, he gave up the lead
and fell back to the No. 14
spot after being penalized for
speeding on the pit road.
Jeff Gordon had the most
depressing day, as he saw any
hopes of his own go out the
window when he was at the
eighth position on the track.
An apparent problem with
fuel pressure caused him to
have to limp back to the pit
with only 29 laps to go.
Despite an avid attempt by
Gordon, he finished in the
39th spot.
Casey Mears finished sec-
ond behind Stewart, with
Mark Martin finishing in
third place. Jeff Burton, who
grabbed the points lead last
weekend at Dover, finished in
the No. 5 spot.

"See You at the Pole" offers prayer opportunity at Walton Middle School


By BRUCE COLLIER
Youth for Christ (YFC) or-
ganized a voluntary "See You
at the Pole" prayer gathering
at Walton Middle School


(WMS) on Sept. 27.
The event began at 7:30
a.m., at the WMS flagpole.
Bernie Joyner warmed up,
playing "music as we gather"
on his guitar.


The flag was raised, while
Marsha Joyner and the gath-
ered students sang the na-
tional anthem. YFC president
Kathryn Foy introduced the
program, which is held yearly


at WMS.
YFC vice-president Joseph
Wheeler introduced the
theme of the event, Psalm
46:10, "Be still, and know
that I am God."
Wheeler was followed by a
succession of four YFC devo-
tional chairmen, each read-
ing a chapter of the Bible re-


lating to prayer.
Individual prayer groups
formed, and prayed for a
short time, while the WMS
Eighth Grade Select En-
semble sang "You'll Never
Walk Alone" from Rodgers
and Hammerstein's "Carou-
sel."

Top teams continue

to win, but struggle


By CHUCK HINSON
It was another Saturday
filled with college football,
but as the season progresses,
so increase the plays and
problems with the top teams.
For the No. 3-ranked
Southern California Trojans,
their hopes of an undefeated
season almost got bashed by
Washington State. USC did
manage to pull out a late
fourth quarter victory over
the Cougars and rest a little
easier for one more weekend
with a 28-22 victory,
For No. 5 Florida fans (5-
0), a much-too-close game
took place in the Swamp
against the Crimson Tide.
Unranked Alabama was
poised to deliver an upset.
That's how it looked in the
first half, as the Gators and
Tide went into the locker
rooms with a Bama lead of
10-7. One score for the Tide
came on a fumble recovered
from Florida's Chris Leake,
and the second came from a
21-yard Alabama field goal.
Florida did manage to get
seven points on the board just
before the half and the horn
blew with a 10-7 score, Ala-
bama.
But as with any team that
plays in the Swamp, the sec-
ond half is usually all 'gator
chomping and the loud
crowds that propel Florida to
the winner's circle almost ev-
ery time. In the third and
fourth quarters, Florida
proved why they are ranked
No. 5 in the country and fin-
ished up the game with a 28-
13 win.
The Gators welcome their
SEC Swamp rivals, No. 9
LSU, for what will be a game
of defense. As for the Gators,
despite a home advantage,
they will be playing without
team rushing leader
DeShawn Wynn, who is out
with a twisted knee.
For Miami fans, another
very close game took place in
the bowl in Miami as they
took on the University of
Houston and barely escaped


another embarrassing loss.
The final score, 14-13 Canes.
The 4-0 Houston team had
the unranked (2-2) Canes un-
der control and thought they
would be able to handle the
team, but Larry Coker had
other plans and the time
clock ran out before Houston
could make their final attack.

Number 10-ranked Georgia
has seen better years. In the
next week or so they may
hope they could exit the SEC
when they face No. 15 Ten-
nessee between the hedges in
Athens, then travel to Au-
burn and then Florida in the
next three weeks.
Georgia barely scraped by
unranked and winless Ole
Miss 14-9 in Oxford. Georgia
struggled on every play of the
game and seemed to just have
trouble getting all pistons fir-
ing at the same time.
The Bulldogs will have
their hands full over the next
several weeks, with many
predicting they will walk
away at the end of October,
with 5-3 season and thus be
completely out of the fight for
the SEC Championship.
Though it was not a pretty
game, the No. 2-ranked Au-
burn Tigers played on Thurs-
day night and beat Steve
Spurrier's South Carolina
Gamecocks by just a few
points, 24-17.
The worst thing to come out
of the game for Auburn was
the 4-6 week loss of center Joe
Cope, who received injuries
during the game against
South Carolina.
The Tigers take on a sur-
prisingly tough Arkansas
team on Saturday, then pre-
pare for their heated SEC
match-up against Florida on
Oct. 14.
For the Florida State fans
this past weekend, we were
able to enjoy a cool, October
weekend because the Semi-
noles were not playing. The
Noles do travel this weekend
to take on North Carolina
State.

FATAL CRASH ON INDIAN WOMEN ROAD leaves one dead, two injured.




Fatal traffic accident in


south Walton county


By BRUCE COLLIER
The Walton County
Sheriff's Office (WCSO),
South Walton Fire Depart-
ment (SWFD) and Florida
Highway Patrol (FHP) inves-
-igated a single-vehicle crash
)n the evening 'of Sept. 29-
;hat took the life of a pas-
senger. The driver and an-
Ather occupant were injured.

FHP investigator Tpr. J.C.
Lieb reported that a vehicle
Avas traveling south on In-
iian Woman Road "at an ex-
-essive speed." The driver ap-
parently lost control of the


vehicle, struck a pile of gar-
bage, overcorrected, and
struck the cement guardrail
of a bridge head-on. One pas-
senger was killed, and the in-
jured driver and other pas-
senger were transported by
-AirHeart helicopter to Bay
Medical Hospital in Panama
City.
The passenger who was
killed was identified as
Roberto Verez Hernandez,
29, of Santa Rosa Beach. At
press time, the names of the
two injured persons had not
been released, pending noti-
fication of next of kin.


However, the FHP report
listed their ages as 20 and 25.
Both are residents of Santa
Rosa Beach, and their respec-
tive'conditions were de-
scribed as "serious" and
"critical."
l Hernmidez was reportedly
not wearing a seatbelt, nor
was the critically-injured
passenger. The driver report-
edly was wearing a seatbelt,
but the FHP report said that
alcohol was a factor in the
crash.

Charges are listed as
pending.


By Dotty Nist
After considering several
options, the South Walton
fire commissioners are pur-
suing a legislative change to
resolve a situation resulting
from the addition of a new
voter precinct in their service
area.
The South Walton Fire
District (SWFD), is a special
district providing fire rescue
and emergency medical ser-
vices in an 84-square-mile
area south of the bay..
When the district was cre-
ated by state statute in 1983,
three precincts existed south
of the bay, No. 29 (Miramar
Beach), No. 18 (Santa Rosa
Beach), and No. 15 (Point
Washington). This was the
case until just a few months
ago when part of Precinct No.'
15 became a new precinct,
No. 34.
State statute set up the
South Walton Fire District
with representation by seven
fire commissioners, including
two from each precinct and
one "at large" fire commis-
sioner. .
The new precinct created


a problem, since the statutes
limit the number of fire com-
missioners to seven, a num-
ber that would be exceeded
if two commissioners were
added to the board to repre-
sent the new precinct.
At the Oct. 2 SWFD meet-
ing Fire Commissioner Jack
Abbitt discussed several op-
tions for resolving the situa-
tion, options that had been
evaluated by a committee re-
cently enlisted for the task.
It was the committee's
opinion that adding addi-
tional fire commissioner
seats when new precincts are
created would not be an ad-
visable plan since the district
representation is capped at
seven seats by statute.
The fire commissioners
were also of the opinion that
their board was already large
enough, exceeding, in fact,
the size of the county com-
mission by two seats.
Another option examined
was a change to all "at large"
representation for all seven
seats. The committee also
recommended against this
option. Abbitt stated that in


their opinion this plan would
not provide "the fair repre-
sentation we have today."
Under that option, he ex-
plained, a situation could be
created where all the fire
commissioners would be
from one geographical area,
and there would be the po-
tential for "power plays" at
the expense of sections that
were not similarly repre-
sented.
After some discussion,.the
fire commissioners voted
unanimously to pursue a
third option, that of tying
seats to eastern, central and
western areas south of the
bay, areas drawn up accord-
ing to the original three ex-'
isting precincts as they ex-
isted prior to the recent
change in precincts, with the
eastern area being bounded
on the north by the Intrah-,
oastal Waterway in accor-
dance with the SWFD service
area. The plan is to include
one at-large seat, in-accor-
dance with the current co6n-
figuration and two fire com-

THE SOUTH WALTON Fire District has elected to pursue a legislative change in re-
sponse to a revamping of voter precincts south of the bay in Walton County.




Too-tall fence can't stay


The Latest Buzz on Mosquito Control


By LEAH STRATMANN
A casual glance at the
2006-2007 budget for the
South Walton County Mos-
Quito Control District would
iave most people thinking
;hat $1.65 million dollars is
i lot of dough for spraying
mosquitoes. Closer inspec-
:ion and a chat with director
3ary D'Andrea reveals mos-
quito control covers a lot
more than trucks dispensing
spray.
"While we have a budget
)f $1,654,717, we probably
Avon't spend all of that. We
ion't want to go over budget
ind our millage rate was re-
luced this year from .1193
:er thousand to .0947. That
neans a person living in a
.ome appraised at $200,000
"ays $18.94 annually for
mosquito control," he said.


The money budgeted for
the district includes all the
employees and the commis-
sioners, a total employee ros-
ter of 16.
"A big portion of our oper-
ating budget is working in
and maintaining ditches. We
have 31 miles of major drain-
age ditches in the south end
of the county with an access
trail along side of them. We
just cleaned out a ditch and
got four truckloads of con-
crete. Everybody uses the
ditches to dump things in,"
D'Andrea said. He noted that
while dumping things is ille-
gal, seldom is anyone caught
because the ditches are iso-
lated and inconspicuous.
D'Andrea said the control
district originally dug all the
ditches maintained by the
department years ago to try


and control the mosquito
habitat. "Without the ditches,
the property could not have
been developed," he said. "All
of the ditches are on private
property, but the control dis-
trict has been maintaining
the ditches for 40 years."
The routine operations of
the department include
treating standing water with
larvicides to prevent the lay-
ing of mosquito eggs, as well
as treating catch basins and
retention ponds with insect
growth regulators and herbi-
cides to keep the vegetation
down and discourage insect
breeding.
"We run the spray trucks
as needed to control the adult
population," he said. "We also
do surveillance with light

Do "good fences make good
neighbors," as the poet said?
A 7.5-foot-tall fence in a
Gulf Trace front yard got
mixed reviews from neigh-
bors and a stop-work order
from code enforcement, and
the case recently ended up at
the Walton County Zoning
Board of Adjustments (ZBA),
with the property owner
seeking a variance from
county regulations.
The owner had spent
$20,000 on the fence.
In Walton County, code
regulations limit fence
height in front yards to four
feet on lots less than half an
acre, which was the size of
Mark Northcutt's property.
The height limit does not ap-
ply if the fence is located at
or behind the building set-
back line, but the Northcutt's
privacy fence, which was 85
percent complete, was con-
structed at the property line.
In August, Northcutt ex-
plained that he had not been
aware that the fence was in
violation of the code until it


was almost finished. He
added that he had not built
it for his family's privacy but
to protect the public from his
dog, which tended to bark
and behave in an aggressive
manner.
County staff expressed
concern not only about the
height of the fence but about
potential traffic hazards due
to impacts of the fence on the
visual sight triangle, since
Northcutt's property is a cor-
ner lot.
That issue was resolved at
the Sept. 28 ZBA meeting
when Cliff Knauer of Preble-
Rish testified that, according
to an engineering study he
had conducted, the visual tri-
angle was not impacted by
the fence.
Some of the neighbors tes-
tifying at the August and
September hearings on the
fence had no objection. Oth-
ers felt that it did not "fit" the
look of the neighborhood or
that it posed safety issues.
Adjacent neighbor Joe
Bostick, Jr. said he welcomed
the privacy that the fence of-


fered.
Neighbor Jim Perry .sug-
gested that the fence be
brought into compliance by
cutting it down to four feet.
Northcutt responded that it
would not be easy to do that
with his particular fence---
and that the height was nec-
essary to separate his dog
from tourists, renters and
others.
Nearby resident Richard
Fowlkes was concerned that
the community would have
an "unfriendly" look if tall'
fences such as this became
the norm.

A for-discussion motion to
grant Northcutt a variance to
leave the 7.5-foot fence :in
place failed with four nays
and no votes in favor, result-
ing in denial of the variance.
Barring a successful ap-
peal of the decision, the prop-
erty owner will be required
to remove the fence ,or
shorten its height to meet
code requirements, or move
the fence back to the build-
ing setback line.

October brings on
somewhat cooler
weather to the
Florida Panhandle,
and thus a slew of
outdoor events takes
place throughout the
area. From music
concerts to art festi-
vals, the cultural di-
versity can really be
experienced.

It seems that October can
not get here soon enough for
all the activity that swarms
the Emerald Coast. Numer-
ous organizations put their
best foot forward and invite
the community to celebrate
with them.
This weekend, events will
kick off along the coast, be-
ginning five weeks of art,
music and food.
At Rosemary Beach, the
second annual Tunes by the
Dunes concert returns to the
Saint Augustine Green. The
7 p.m. concert will once again
. showcase the talents of
Grammy award winner Kim
Carnes.

will be joined onstage by

area. Artists from all across
the region will color with
chalk on 10 x 10 spaces on
the parking lots. Spaces are

nesses and organziations

ations and surplus treasures.

sored by the Mattie Kelly

white sand beaches of the
coast. White tents will line
the streets of the state park,
and a breathtaking view of
the gulf can be seen from any
angle.

Vendors in the media of
wood, fiber, pen, pencil, ink,
pastel, oil, watercolor, pottery,

Coast has been known for
years as the art mecca.of the

Movie Review


'Flyboys' a tale of old time aerial combat


By BRUCE COLLIER
World War I (1914-1918)
was a mostly-European
bloodbath, involving imperial
Germany, France, Great Brit-
ain, Russia, Turkey, and as-
sorted smaller fry. The
United States managed to
avoid the fight for two years,
formally entering in 1916.
When war first broke out,
America held back.


That didn 't hold some
Americans back. A number of
Yanks volunteered to serve
in British or French units to
fight "Kaiser Bill," and a few
international outfits gained
legendary status. One such
unit was the Lafayette Esca-
drille, the subject of director
Tony Bill's film "Flyboys."
The Escadrille was a
French-based squadron, ex-


perimenting with military
applications for that brand-
new curiosity, the airplane.
This was the era of the bi-
plane and the triplane,
Sopwith Camels, Newports,'
Fokkers, and, yes, the Red
Baron.
Don't look for Snoopy's
archenemy here, though. The
film takes the subject, and
the fighting, seriously.


"Flyboys" follows the conven-
tions of the classic war movie,
with the main characters
starting out as rookies and
ending as seasoned fighter
pilots. Some of them die in
the process.
.There's a love story, of
sorts, but most of the screen
time is taken up with train-
ing and fighting.
The core group of fighter
pilots is a typical Hollywood
mixed bag. We see a good-for-
nothing rich kid, a patriotic
wannabe hero, a black man
who's been working as a
boxer in Paris, a hymn-sing-
ing Christian, and the main
character, Blaine Rawlings,
played by James Franco.


Blaine is a rancher from
Texas, whose family lost its
ranch to bank foreclosure,
and who leaves one. step
ahead of eviction.
The boys come to France
all full of you-know-what and
vinegar. They get the usual
rude awakening in the form
of a tough squadron captain,
played by Jean Reno, and a
war-weary ace, Cassidy,
played by Martin Henderson.
In short order, the guys are
trained and sent aloft to fly
their first action against the
Germans. It doesn't go well.
From that point on, the
film rides on two tracks. The
first is the squadron's
struggle to improve while


staying alive, the second is a
low-key romance, conducted
across a language barrier,
between Blaine and a young
French woman, Lucienne,
played by Jennifer Decker.
Mission follows mission,
guys get scared, guys get
killed, guys get better. The
film ends with the squadron's
final encounter with its nem-
esis, the Black Falcon, a Ger-
man ace with a nasty habit
of strafing downed pilots.
The look of the film is im-
pressive, particularly in its
depiction of the aircraft. Put
together with wood, metal,
and fabric, these planes are,

In the play, three gentle-
men, independently of each
other, are invited to a swanky
Parisian restaurant by a mu-

Then the women show up,

HEALTH SNUFFED OUT BY

TOBACCO-RELATED ILLNESS?


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.

If you or a loved one developed a smoking related illness
between 1990 and 2000, call your Florida Consumer Justice Attorneys
for a free consultation.

find out what kinds of insects
are out there."
The mosquito control dis-
trict also interacts with the
population when called upon.
They will provide at least one
"sticky ball" to a household
and teach homeowners how
to make them to reduce the
nuisance of deer and yellow
flies, which bite,
"We take a beach ball and
paint it black and then spray
it with a substance called
'sticky stuff.' Then we tie the
ball to a tree or elsewhere
where the breeze will move it
and attract the flies. When
the flies investigate, they get
stuck to the ball. You can
make them out of empty milk
cartons or anything else light
enough to move in the
breeze," he said. "We distrib-
uted about 350 sticky balls
last year and we hand out
instructions on how to make
them at the same time," he
noted.
D'Andrea, who holds a
bachelor's degree in biology,
has been director of the dis-
trict for the past nine years.
He has more than 25 years of
experience in the mosquito
control field.
"It's a lot more than just
coming in and telling people
to spray. It's like being a

have to present to my board,
operate the program, pur-
chase the equipment and per-
form human resource func-
tions," he said. "It's a chal-
lenge, but it's never boring."
This year's long period of
drought was something of a
blessing to the department,
but D'Andrea noted that
when the sporadic rains
started, the department was
kept busy as broods of insects
developed throughout the
county. The control district
will do home inspections
when needed and when
alerted to a need by the citi-
zenry.
"We have $119,000 in con-
tingency funds just in case.
We need to be ready for any-
thing. When you are dealing
with a biological entity, you
can't really predict anything."
These funds roll over from
year to year if they are not
tapped.

D'Andrea also pointed out
that about 15 percent of his
budget is put in reserves to
cover sick leave and vacation
time and for capital outlays.
"These funds cannot be used
for day to day operations," he
said. "Our low millage rates
are complemented by carry-
over funds that include built-
in plans for the future."'

The plan would have the
