DeFuniak Springs


Council approves


impact fees


By Leigh Strickland
The Chautauqua building
renovation project will soon
move forward toward
completion as the DeFuniak
Springs city council voted at
its latest meeting to accept
low bidder Mike Josey Con-
struction. The total cost for
the project will be $319,029,
which is within the $320,000
budgeted. Bill Redding, a
representative for Mike
Josey Construction, said,
"We're looking forward to do-
ing this job." He estimated
completion of the project
within four to six months.
Further discussion will take
place between the city and
Mike Josey Construction re-
garding usability of the
building during the project.
Another city improvement
project was discussed at the
meeting as bids were consid-
ered for construction of a
sidewalk on Burdick Avenue.
The council voted to reject all
bids because none were
within the available budget
for the project. The construc-
tion of a sidewalk on Burdick
Avenue will require water
line upgrades to address
drainage issues and the
project is to be schedule for
the 2007-2008 budget year.
Two zoning change re-
quests were considered by
the council.
The first was for a 10-acre
parcel on the southwest side
of 20th Street, one half mile
north of the intersection of
20th Street and U.S. 90. The
parcel is currently zoned for
agriculture and the request
is for a change to R-2 multi-
family residential. A motion
for first reading and adver-
tisement was approved.
The other request was for


the portion of the Texaco
property, which borders
Bruce Avenue, Park Avenue,
and U.S. 331, that is zoned C-
1 commercial. The petition
for zoning change would have
that portion be rezoned to C-
2 commercial. The council
approved the first reading of
an ordinance that would af-
fect that change.
The revised city ordinance
regarding subdivision regu-
lations was considered by the
council. Discussion centered
on creating language in the
document that would aid in
creating affordable housing
in DeFuniak Springs. The
subdivision ordinance was
tabled until a future meeting.
Melissa Proctor of Govern-
ment Services Group pre-
sented draft law enforcement
and fire rescue impact fee
studies to the council. The
law enforcement study rec-
ommended a $381.16 impact
fee for future residential de-
velopments and an average
$2.87 fee for future commer-
cial developments. The fire
rescue study recommended a
$374.22 impact fee for future
residential developments
and a $0.55 fee for future
commercial developments.
The council moved to accept
the studies and prepare or-
dinances for implementa-
tion.
The council approved
$3,000 in improvements to
,the airport. This cost was al-
ready budgeted. They also
renewed the bargaining unit
agreement for city employees
and an agreement with Wal-
ton County for mosquito con-
trol services.

By Dotty Nist
David Hallman, Walton

2005, has tendered his resig-
nation effective Dec. 1.
Hallman commented on
Oct. 16 that he is leaving the
position to pursue other op-
portunities, He looks toward
his departure with a positive
outlook on his experience
with the county.
"A lot has been accom-
plished, and we've had a lot
of challenges," Hallman said
of his 18-month tenure with
the county attorney's office.
"We are lucky to have the
leadership we have on the
Walton County Board of
County Commissioners," he
noted.


Hallman said he has not
yet negotiated with any pro-
spective employers but hopes
to continue to practice law in
the local area or possibly in
Tallahassee.
"I've come to love Walton

Hallman replaced former
county attorney Gary
Vorbeck soon after Vorbeck's
resignation.'

ployed as a litigator for the
state Department of Trans-
portation. An FSU graduate,
Hallman had also previously
been employed as ,attorney
for Levy County, Florida.

Paxton Town Council


considers planning specialist


By BRUCE COLLIER
The regular October meet-
ing of the Paxton Town Coun-
cil saw one new and two re-
elected members sworn in,
and a discussion of hiring a
planning specialist to help
with town growth.
Judge David Green ad-
ministered the oath of office
to new member Bill McRae
and to re-elected members
Ann Sexton and Joe Melton.
The council voted to keep
member Bobby Kemp as
chairman. Member Jenice
Armstrong was also in atten-
dance.
Mayor Wanda Smith
joined the council in present-
ing a certificate of apprecia-
tion to outgoing member
Tommy Mathis, who was
present to receive it.
Following routine matters
of approval of minutes and a
utility waiver, the council ad-
dressed a contract proposal
for hiring a planning services
specialist to assist the coun-
cil in planning issues.
Freeport city planner
Latilda Henninger had sub-
mitted her resume to the
council, along with a memo-
randum describing the job
and her fee.
City attorney Loriann
Bytell advised the council
that since this is a position
for specialized services, the
town does not have to adver-
tise for it.
A question was raised on
whether the council would
be required to enact an ordi-
nance setting fees to be col-
lected and used to pay the
planning 'specialist.


* Bytell said that she be-
lieved an ordinance existed,
but may deal only with im-
pact fees.
McRae expressed concern
that Henninger's Freeport
duties would keep her from
attending Paxton council
meetings, and suggested that
the council consider chang-
ing its meeting schedule to
accommodate hers.
The entire matter was
taken under advisement.
The council was asked for
and passed a motion to get a
six-month extension on its
City Development Block
Grant (CDBG) grant, and
asked to execute an admin-
istrative contract to admin-
ister the grant.
McRae asked when the
town's generator would be
online, and was told that it
would be in service in time
for the 2007 hurricane sea-
son.
The city has received
funds to build backup gen-
erators at lift stations. and a
second water tank for future
emergencies.
The water rate ordinance
was considered next. Bytell
said that the council needed
to address the issue of rates
for commercial structures
and schools, which had been
omitted from the original
version of the ordinance.
McRae suggested that in
amending the ordinance,
that language also be added
providing for an additional
reconnect charge for utility
reconnection done after busi-
ness hours.
Kamp asked a utility rep-


resentative in attendance
whether reconnects were
ever done after hours, and
was told they were not. Nev-
ertheless, several council
members wanted language
included to give options for
after-hours reconnects.'
Bytell offered to amend the
ordinance to reflect this.
Bytell also advised the
council that there is pres-
ently no language allowing
waiver of impact fees for wa-
ter and sewer service. If the
council wants it, she said,
they need to articulate stan-
dards for waiver of these fees.
She agreed to draft such lan-
guage.
A progress report on the
ballfield said that the wrong
kind of paint, had been used
on the doors, and that they
needed to be repainted. Oth-
erwise the field is progress-
ing.
Sexton said she had heard
some complaints of loud mu-
sic in town, and asked
whether Paxton had a noise
ordinance, which will have to
be looked into.
Kemp advised that a cover
crop must be planted on city
land at the sewer treatment
plant, and had some esti-
mated costs for planting
grass on the 40-acre lot. The
cover crop must be planted
to comply with state law. A
motion to proceed was made
and carried, and various
kinds of cover crop and costs
were discussed.
The meeting adjourned at
7:58 p.m., and a reception for
the new and re-elected mem-
bers followed.


Freeport

deals with

development

thorns

By Ben Grafton
In its meeting of October
10 in City Hall, the Freeport
City Council heard a recom-,
mendation for approval of
the Palm Shadow Town*
Home project consisting of
294 units on a 44.1 acre par-
cel zoned mixed use R-3, lo-.
cated south of Sunflower,
Road. The recommendation
was subject to receipt of ap-
proval from Peter's Munici;
pal Associates (PMA), the,
city's engineers. They also
considered approval of pro-
posed development road
names by Walton County,
GIS, as well as a fence being.
erected on the north bound-
ary line of the property.
Council also had to reconcile
questions about an easement
that gives access to property
owned by Mrs. Linda Askew.
City Planner Latilda
Henninger told the Council
that PMA has asked that
approval be tabled due to
outstanding engineering is-
sues which the developer's
engineers have not ad-
dressed.
Mayor Mickey Marse said
that the problem of engineer-
ing companies failing to com-
municate with PMA within
a reasonable time has be-
come-a general problem that
must be resolved. He stated
that a meeting of city man-
agement, Planning Staff and
PMA representatives would
be held next week to fix a
policy for this issue.
A detailed presentation by
Peter Pike of McNeese Title
Company addressed the is-
sue of the easement. Pike
said that Mrs. Askew had
been using the access road
which lies partly on Palm
Shadow property and partly
on land owned by Mr. Griffith
since 1979. He said this pe-
riod of time is far in excess pf
that needed to acquire a pr,-
scriptive easement whidh
would assure her of contin-
ued access so long as she
wanted. He said that the de-
veloper would assure MrS.

U.S. 331 the rocky road to relief


By Ben Grafton
With frustrated drivers
caught in the virtual end-to-
end no-passing zone of two-
laned U.S. 331 in Walton
County, Freeport residents,
developers and emergency
management personnel hope
for improvement in traffic
flow when the Freeport By-
pass opens.
First of all, as confirmed
by Lt. Bryan Maule of the
Walton County Sheriffs De-
partment, traffic volume, in-
cluding the number of larger
vehicles, is up. And, as you
would expect, the number of
accidents is up as well, with
reportable incidents climbing
from 21 accident in July 2005
to 24 in July 2006.
The death toll from these
incidents in 2006 includes
two multi-fatality accidents
on the stretch of highway be-
tween Freeport and U.S.
Highway 98. One of these
was the result of a vehicle
drifting into the opposite
lane and the other was trig-
gered by a rear-end collision.
Adding to community con-
cern is the fact that there are


five public schools that are
located on or adjacent to the
shoulders of the highway.
One of these is in Paxton, one
is in south Walton and the
other three are in Freeport.
The negative impact of school
traffic volume on an over-
loaded two-lane road is sig-
nificant.
Lt. Maule believes that
completion of the U.S. 331 by-
pass at Freeport will benefit
everyone. Best of all, the
three Freeport schools will no
longer be on the shoulders of
the road. The fact that there
will be fewer turns and stops
in Freeport should improve
the flow of traffic.
Freeport's Mayor Mickey
Marse and City Planner
Latilda Henninger think
that the new by-pass will
carry "through traffic"
around the central city,
granting relief from the traf-
fic problem, but without hav-
ing a negative impact on
businesses located there.
According to Tommy
Speights, public information
director, District Three of the
Florida Department of


Transportation (DOT), the
by-pass itself which stretches
from one-half mile south of
the intersection with State
Road 20 East, north to the
Owls Head development, will
originally be only a two-lane
road. On the positive side, the
bridges, as built, will be wide
enough to carry four lanes of
traffic and the right-of-way to
expand the by-pass to four
lanes has already been se-
cured.
The users of U.S. 331 must
be patient though because
the by-pass is not expected to
open until November of 2007.
Speights says that both
right-of way procurement
and design are already un-
derway on a project to four-
lane U.S. 331 from U.S. 98 to
the bay bridge. Another
project is underway to com-
plete the design of a four lane
stretch of road from the bay
bridge to the south end of the
Freeport by-pass. Right-of-
way procurement for this lat-
ter portion of road is cur-
rently scheduled for comple-
tion in fiscal year 2007.
Unfortunately, except for


TRAFFIC on SR 20 at US 331 N in Freeport.


preliminary design and engi-
neering, there are no other
U.S. 331 projects funded.
Speights says that DOT nor-
mally allocates two years
each to the project phases to
do preliminary development


and engineering, design, pro-
cure right-of-way and con-
struct a section of road. Since
the first phases for prelimi-
nary development and engi-
neering for separate projects
to four-lane U.S. 331 all the


way to the Alabama line are
virtually complete, if the
money was allocated today
(which it isn't), it would likely
be at least six or more years

Brannon stated, "Our local
delegation has been very ac-
tive and supportive on this,
but this is a big issue, and we
want citizens to know we
hear their concerns."

New

veterans

clinic at

Eglin AFB
Congressman Jeff Miller
(R-FL-01) spoke Monday at
the groundbreaking cer-
emony for the Veterans Af-
fairs Community Based Out-
patient Clinic (CBOC) at Eg-
lin Air Force Base.
"This new clinic is an ex-
traordinary victory for our
veterans in Northwest
Florida," Miller said.
"Okaloosa County is home to
one of the largest concentra-
tions of veterans in Florida
and the nation. It doesn't
make sense for them to drive
all the way Pensacola for pri-
mary health care."
"We have an obligation to
the men and women who
have served and defended
our country. By breaking
ground Monday on this state-
of-the-art facility, we will en-
sure Northwest Florida's de-
serving veterans have conve-
nient access to proper medi-
cal care," added Miller.
The new veterans' clinic at
Eglin was first proposed by
Congressman Miller in June
of 2002, following the visit of
then-Secretary of Veterans'
Affairs Anthony Principi to
Northwest Florida.
Congressman Miller con-
tinues to work with the De-
partment of Defense and the
Department of Veteran's Af-
fairs to expand co-sharing
facilities throughout the
country. The clinic at Eglin
Air Force Base, along with
the new Joint Ambulatory
Care Center (Super Clinic) in
Pensacola, are at the cutting
edge of innovations in veter-
ans' care and exemplify a
model for the nation.

CLAIM: Voting machines are vulnerable to viruses, glitches, and computer fraud.

FACT: Florida election law requires all 67 counties to implement rigid security procedures
and counter-measures to prevent criminal tampering with elections (Source: F.S. 101.015).
Walton County exceeds state security procedures.

CLAIM: Walton County must implement instant runoff elections that eliminate the primary
election.

FACT: Instant runoff elections are prohibited by Florida election law and primary elections
are mandated by Florida election law (Source: F.S. 100.061). Instant runoff elections are a
matter for the State to decide, not the county SOE. Unless the state legislature passes new
laws that would allow an instant runoff election, it remains unlawful in all Florida counties.

CLAIM: With a printed receipt, voters can audit their own votes against a recorded ballot.

FACT: Florida law prohibits a voter from leaving a polling place with proof of how they
voted. Any paper voting receipt is illegal (Source: F.S. 104.20 & F.S. 104.23). Receipts have
never been issued to voters in Florida. Use of a paper ballot receipt may tempt a voter to
exchange their receipt (vote) for something of monetary value.

CLAIM: Walton County does not perform mandatory audits after any election.

FACT: Under certain conditions, the legislature may provide for an independent audit of a
voting system in any county (Source: F.S. 101.591). We already perform in-house audits be-
fore, during, and after every election. Real-time audit logs are required by all certified vot-
ing systems used in the State of Florida.

We are preventing fraud before it happens, and
there has never been any criminal tampering with
electronic voting equipment in Walton County.

Elections are running smoothly in Walton County.
Front-end security is paramount in keeping your vote safe.
I have the knowledge, common sense, and expertise


to continue doing this important job.
Keep eight years of real election experience working for you.

A Letter From The Homefront


the local news.
"On behalf of all of us here
at the Herald-Breeze, I send
along our prayers and best
wishes for your swift, safe re-
turn."
Kelley said that was 'the
last he thought about it un-
til receiving the following let-
ter from Laird just one week
ago.
"Mr. Kelley, I received my
first issue of the Herald yes-
terday. It was a true joy to
read something that spoke of
home and normalcy. Thanks
so much for making that hap-
pen.
"I'm now been here for
around one month with five
months to go. I'm working at
Victory Base as the Deputy
Provost Marshal for Multi-
National Corps-Iraq and, as
you might imagine, it's keep-


ing me pretty busy.
"We think we are making
a difference here in helping
the Iraqi people achieve
true self-governance, and it
means a lot to know that
your home town is behind
you. I've included a photo of
me holding our paper in
front of one of the many
Mosques located in Bagdad.
"Please pass my greet-
ings to the people of Walton
County in general, and the

1974, in particular. A spe-
cial hello to my wife and

ofAmerica's greatest presidents. Lincoln said,
"As I would not be a slave, so I would not be a
master. This expresses my idea of
democracy. America will never be destroyed
from the outside. If we falter and lose our
freedoms, it will be because we destroyed our-
selves."
In the last century, there have been many
notable presidents, including Calvin Coolidge,
who said, "No nation ever had an army large
enough to guarantee it against, attack in time
of peace or insure it victory in time of war."

Harry S. Truman said, "Once a government
is committed to the principle of silencing the
voice of opposition, it has only one way to go,
and that is down the path of increasingly re-
pressive measures, until it becomes a source
of terror to all its citizens and creates a coun-
try where everyone lives in fear."
One of my favorite presidents, Franklin
Delano Roosevelt, said something so profound
that I must include it here. He said, "In the
future days, which we seek to make secure,
we look forward to a world founded upon four
essential human freedoms.
"The first is freedom of speech and expres-
sion-everywhere in the world. The second is
freedom of every person to worship God in
his own way-everywhere in the world. The
third is freedom from want-which, trans-
lated into world terms, means economic
understandings which will secure to every

Dear Editor,
I read with dismay the letter from former county com-
missioner Gene Ryan regarding the Walton County Taxpay-
ers Association. Mr. Ryan is well aware that our association
has been involved in county finances and strategic planning
for a number of years through its Citizens Budget Commit-
tee. We have participated in strategic planning and individual
meetings, analyzed county finances, made presentations in
budget workshops and budget hearings and, in the past year,
reviewed county expenditures on a weekly basis.
Riding the wave of the real estate boom since 2000, local
government has enjoyed enormous increases in revenues
relevant to the huge increases in property valuations. All
county taxing authorities have increased their budgets, in
some cases 100 percent to over 500 percent in the last six
years. Local government entities have proven the adage, "If
you send it, they will spend it".
Windfall profits have funded an accelerated road paving
plan, courthouse renovation, new jail, law enforcement add-
ing significant manpower with increased salaries, new
schools, new teachers, and competitive compensation for
school personnel at every level. The South Walton Fire Dis-
trict has built fire stations, bought new vehicles and equip-
ment, added firefighters, emergency medical services and a
life guard program.
It is no surprise that when Walton County property own-
ers received their tax bills this past August, after the July
budget workshop, they were overwhelmed by the cost of gov-
ernment. With the current stagnant real estate market, un-
attainable or unaffordable property insurance, and property
appraisal increases, many property owners questioned
whether they could afford to own property in our county.
Hit especially hard were people who invested in our county
by buying condos or second homes, for their own use and for
the tens of thousands of tourists who vacation on our beaches.
Our tourist industry depends on these "investors".
The basis of the Taxpayers Association work is support-
ing the financial soundness of our county. Appropriately, we
made presentations and appeals for lower tax levies to the
various taxing boards and commissions on behalf of our
members. The decisions for how and where to make budget
cuts were placed in the hands of our elected officials. They
are the decision-makers and final authorities on how much
money is confiscated from taxpayers and what is purchased
with that money.
For the third year in a row, the current county commis-
sion reduced the tax levy, a total decrease of 29 percent over
the three years. Not once have county services suffered as a
result of these tax breaks.
In contrast, the Walton County School District and South
Walton Fire District have given taxpayers no relief from
burdensome taxes while enjoying unprecedented spending.
We can thank the State of Florida for reducing the state-
mandated portion of our school taxes 64 percent since 2003.
For the first time in ten years, the South Walton Fire Dis-
trict reduced their tax levy three cents per $1,000 this year.
The number of hours that the volunteer board of the Tax-
payers Association expends on behalf of our members can-
not be counted. It is simply our contribution to making Wal-
ton County the best it can be.

Walton County Taxpayers Association

Editor:
One more step in a year long process to open a new senior
center will be taken October 19, when the College Avenue
-Coqmplexcommittee meets to make a final recommendation.
A vote will be taken to advance a formal request to the Wal-
ton County Commissioners on October 24, so work can be-
gin on the Life Enrichment Senior Center.
The College Avenue Complex Committee was tasked to
make a recommendation on how the county offices on Col-
lege Avenue could be used to support senior activities. The
idea was to utilize the facility when county employees are
moved to the nrew courthouse.
Funding by both the county and the city of DeFuniak
Springs is making it possible for senior citizens to have a
place to gather for recreation and entertainment. The city
and the county have worked closely together through the
budget process to make this happen. They have recognized,
the growing senior population and the support that is needed
within the community.
With the vote this Thursday evening, the committee will
have completed its tasks. However, the real work has just
begun. For the Center to become the place as envisioned by
participating senior citizens, it will take a community-wide
effort.
Volunteers of many persuasions will be needed; i.e. social
enthusiast, those experienced in travel, exercise, card and
board games; running a small library, art, crafts, dancing,
pot luck dinners, computer skills, organizing skills, landscap-
ing, quilting, puzzles, and on and on. The level and number
of activities will be limited only to the number of volunteers
available and dedicated leadership.
It has been a pleasure to serve on this committee and I
believe the same sentiment stands for all of the committee
members. The committee has thoroughly enjoyed working
with the senior community and look forward to helping where
we can in the future.
Interested seniors, and in particular baby boomers, are
urged to attend the committee meeting on October 19, at 5
p.m., at the Church of Christ on College Avenue.
J.B. Hillard
Chairman
College Avenue Complex Committee



.Dear Editor,
Back a long time ago, I used to be able to go to one of my
mechanically-inclined friends to get my car fixed. Now with
the new complicated computerized cars I have to take my
car to a high-tech auto diagnostic center.
Well, the same thing is happening in our election system.
In the past, when I chose the person in charge of elections, I
only had to be concerned that we got someone who was hon-
est and could count.
We have now entered a new era in voting that is signifi-
cantly changing how we vote and how our votes are counted.
The new voting technology is very vulnerable to high-tech
tampering and computer hacking.
This means that in order to be able to effectively safe-
guard our election system we need a supervisor of elections
who has the technical training and experience necessary to
meet this new challenge.
Many Americans have died defending our democracy. A
democracy requires secure elections. Walton County needs
a supervisor of elections who has the proper high tech ex-
pertise to protect our votes.
Please carefully study the qualifications of the candidates
for the Walton County Supervisor of Elections and exercise
your right to vote November 7.

Sincerely,
Richard Butela,
Seagrove Beach

that they would give him a

In the letter, Kelley said,

BCBS of Florida, Microspine

team up for scholarships


What began two years ago
as a major initiative by Blue
Cross and Blue Shield of,
Florida (BCBSF) to increase
training of new nurses has
paid dividends after
MicroSpine Surgery Center
in DeFuniak Springs
matched a BCBSF contribu-
tion for first year Okaloosa-
Walton College nursing stu-
dents to receive seven Blue
Crossand Blue Shield of
Florida/Microspine Scholar-
ships.
Dale Rice Jr., president of
the OWC Foundation, de-
scribed as "win-win-win-win
situation" the four-way part-
nership with BCBSF, the
Foundation for Florida's
Community Colleges, which
together funded an initial $5
million endowment, and the
local participation of
MicroSpine and the OWC
Foundation, which uses pri-
vate contributions to match
the college's annual alloca-
tion from the endowment.
"With a growing nursing
program and the addition of
other health programs, we
would like the community to
join the college and founda-
tion in being able to match
these resources each year,"
said Rice. "That is one sure
way we can say we are tak-
ing advantage of each dollar
available to train and gradu-
ate students in these
healthcare fields."
Patrick Byrne, a Niceville
businessman, former OWC
trustee, and chairman of the
Foundation for Florida's
Community Colleges
(FFCC), said joining forces



Hunter safety
program
scheduled
for DeFuniak
Springs.
Tax Collector Rhonda Skip-
per has partnered with the
Walton County Sportsman's
Association and Friends of
the NRA to expand the avail-
ability of local course offer-
ings for the Florida Wildlife
Commission approved
Hunter Safety Course.
Anyone born on or after
June 1, 1975, must take an
FWC-approved course to be
able to obtain a hunting li-
cense. Children need to com-
plete a hunter safety course
before they are required to
purchase a license at the age
of 16. Until then, they must
hunt with a licensed adult,
but are not required to have
completed the hunter safety
course.
The course will be offered
locally, at the Walton County
Sportsman's Association
Range Complex, located at
the end of Smith Road in
DeFuniak Springs. The first
course will be held Nov. 3-5,
2006 and the second will be
Dec. 1-3.
Anyone interested must
register in advance to take
the course. They can register
online at MyFWC.com/
HunterSafety or by calling
the Northwest Florida Re-
gional FWC office at (850)-
265-3676.
The Florida Fish and Wild-
life Conservation Commis-
sion (FWC) offers two options
for completion of the
Hunter Safety Course. The
traditional option consists of
12 hours of classroom in-
struction, an examination,
and the actual firing of a rifle,
shotgun and bow and arrow.
The traditional course be-
gins on Friday evening from
6 p.m. to 9 p.m., then re-
sumes on Saturday morning
from 8 a.m.-4 p.m., and con-
clude with a final session on
Sunday from 9 a.m.-12 noon.
The second option is an in-
teractive Internet or CD-


with Blue Cross and Blue
Shield of Florida "was a natu-
ral for us because access to
quality education is vital in
creating nursing and allied
health professionals."
Dr. Scott Haufe, who along
with Dr. Anthony Mork, be-
gan the MicroSpine facility,
said "We are proud to be as-
sociated with the college and
Blue Cross in -this endeavor.
This type of health care
training is important for our
communities."
Catherine Kelly, vice
president for public affairs,
signature programs, for
BCBSF, and Judy Wilson
Green, associate director of
the FFCC joined OWC offi-
cials in announcing the part-
nership.
Kelly described the part-
nership as a "strategic initia-
tive" of support for nursing
and allied health programs
at the state's colleges and
universities. She said the
objective of the endowment is
seen as having a "sustained
impact in a healthcare area
of significant need" to im-
prove a critical shortage of
nurses and allied health pro-
fessionals statewide.
Dr. Bob Richburg, OWC
president, said as the college
continues to grow its nursing
program to combat the short-
age of some 3,500 nurses in
Okaloosa and Walton coun-
ties, the Blue Cross and Blue
Shield of Florida/MicroSpine
Scholarships are a way of
"making it financially pos-
sible for students to obtain an
education in nursing and
health fields, especially those


whom Blue Cross is seeking
to assist from culturally-di-
verse and under-represented
backgrounds."
As the college's allocation
from BCBSF increases,
Richburg said the OWC
Foundation will seek local
matching funds to award
scholarships for dental as-
sisting, surgical technology,
and radiography technology.
"As a steward of the re-
sources made available
through the endowment, the
OWC Foundation is ready to
prepare the next generation
of nurses and allied health
personnel in our community,"
Richburg said.
The students admitted to
the OWC Nursing Program
for 2006-2007 selected for
Blue Cross and Blue Shield
of Florida/Microspine Schol-
arships are: Jenesa Dawe of
Eglin AFB, Cheri Denney of
Niceville, Eun-Sook Hahn of
Ft. Walton Beach, Tuianda
Moore of Laurel Hill, Sheila
Vega of Florala, AL, Rosalee
Wangerin of Fort Walton
Beach, and Craig Wright of
Fort Walton Beach.

Falling Waters, towering trees


By JEFFREY POWELL
It's Sunday afternoon, the
kids want to get out of the
house, but you don't know
what to do. Try this-pack a
picnic lunch and take the
short trip to Falling Waters
State Park just south of
Chipley.
For the nominal fee of $4,
a family can swim, fish and
hike around some of the most
unique geological features in
the State of Florida.
Follow the sinkhole trail
and hikers will find them-
selves gazing into the mouth
of a 100-foot-deep, 20-foot-
wide circular sinkhole. An
observation deck allows visi-
tors to see the largest water-
fall in the state descend 73
feet. Be warned, the amount
of water falling into the sink-
hole depends upon recent
rainfall levels. Nonetheless,
visitors find this spot fantas-
tic.

Bio-Diesel being used in forestry heavy equipment and vehicles


Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services Commis-
sioner Charles H. Bronson
announced on Oct 11 that the
Division of Forestry will be-
gin using bio-diesel fuel in
some of its heavy equipment
and maintenance vehicles,
including motor graders,
tractors, backhoes and load-
ers.

Bio-diesel fuel is an alter-
native fuel that uses a mix-
ture of diesel and renewable
resources such as soybeans.
The Division of Forestry will
test a mixture containing 20
percent bio-diesel and 80 per-
cent regular diesel, also re-
ferred to as B20. Not only are
the cost of bio-diesel fuel the
same or slightly less than
regular diesel, the use is also


cleaner for the environment.
The Division of Forestry uses
more than one million gal-
lons of fuel per year, with die-
sel usage accounting for 65
percent of that total.
Two of the division's larg-
est districts Withlacoo-
chee, which includes Citrus,
Hernando, Lake, Pasco and
Sumter counties, and Black-
water, which includes
Escambia, Santa Rosa, and
Okaloosa counties- have
launched the program by in-
stalling a specifically desig-
nated fuel apparatus to ac-
commodate the use of B20 at
onsite storage tanks used to
dispense the fuel. It has not
been necessary to make any
modifications to equipment.
The Bunnell District,
which includes Flagler, St.

an open count of murder in
connection with the death of
Susan L. Dykes. Walton
County Sheriff's (WCSO)
deputies arrested Kirk D.
Williams, 28, on Oct.'11.
Dykes, 48, was also a De-
Funiak Springs resident. Her
body was found in Lake
Cassidy, in Holmes County,

According to WCSO, Will-
iams was already in custody
in Walton County, having
been arrested on Oct. 6 on
"unrelated charges." Will-
iams was reportedly in pos-
session of Dykes' car, which
contained evidence. Investi-
gators also searched Dykes'
residence, obtaining evidence
of the killing and of Williams'
alleged involvement.
According to the WCSO,
Williams "intentionally
caused the death of Susan L.
Dykes by striking her in the
head with a blunt object at
her residence."
Williams is then alleged to
have transported the body
and a boat to Lake Cassidy,
where he weighted her down
with concrete blocks and sank


As the architect of Florida's
new "Farm to Fuel" initia-
tive, Bronson is working to
reduce the use of fossil fuel
and help cut Florida and the
nation's dependence on for-
eign oil.
"We have been working
with our agricultural produc-
ers, university scientists and
businesses with the capa-
bility of constructing pro-
cessing facilities to come to-

Board of County Commis-
sioners (BCC) to consider
using remaining 2005-2006
fiscal year economic develop-
ment funds to bulkhead an
area of Four Mile Landing.
The area in question is
just east of Freeport Ship-
building and is currently
used to unload oyster shells
and other roadbed materials.
"If the shoreline is not
bulkheaded, we will have to
discontinue its use," Marse
said. "The movement of the
barges during unloading is
causing significant erosion."
County Commission Cair


Scott Brannon presented
Mayor Marse's request dur-
ing the Oct. 10 BCC regular
meeting.
"A functioning municipal
port is good for the whole
county," Brannon said.
"These funds must be used
for economic development,"
said Finance Director Bill
Imfeld.
Brannon and Marse feel
working on the port facility
falls under this requirement
and plan to meet with Imfeld
and County Administrator
Ronnie Bell as soon as pos-
sible to discuss the issue.
"I have hopes this will
work out," Marse said.


MAYOR MARSE IS HOPING to bulkhead this area on
Four Mile creek.

Askew of access to her prop-
erty over Palm Shadow's
Sand Palm Road. She could
tie into the development's
utility system but she would
have to bear the cost of the
connections. Pike said that
the developer did not have a
place in the property rights
dispute between Griffith and
Askew.
City Attorney Clayton
Adkinson said that the City
should not be in the middle
of the dispute over the ease-
ment issue.
The Council considered a
motion to table approval of
the Palm Shadows project
until the outstanding issues
were resolved. It was noted
that the easement argument
was not a part of the motion
and that it should be settled
between the property owners.
The motion to table was ap-
proved.
The next subject pre-
sented to the Council con-
cerned the 4 Freeport
Townhomes development.
PMA has reported that there
are thirteen outstanding

bama line could be open. Re-
alistically, since money for
this work has proved so tight,
four lanes to the Alabama
line will probably take a de-
cade or more.
For those who would like
to participate, the Metropoli-
tan Transit Organization, the
Florida Department of
Transportation, the Walton
County Chamber of Com-
merce and the South Walton
Tourist Development Council
are sponsoring a public meet-
ing to discuss the U.S. 331

until noon on Thursday, No-
vember 16, 2006.


items on the project and rec-
ommended that approval of
the project be tabled. A
Barnhill Engineering repre-
sentative told the Council
that the thirteen items could
be handled shortly but that
the Planning Board had
added two turning lanes
which would have to be ap-
proved by the Department of
Transportation (DOT) to the
project. He estimated that it
would probably take two
months to get DOT approval.
The Council approved a
motion to table the Freeport
Townhome project and send
it back to the Planning Board
where all items should be re-
solved before it is returned to
the Council.
A project known as Bobcat
Townhomes consisting of
nine town homes on 0.62
acres at Bobcat Lane and Bay
Loop road was presented.
This project has Staff and
Planning Board approval
provided that the developer
separates the drainage area
from the playground area
and provides separate fenc-
ing for each area. A motion
to approve, subject to separa-
tion and fencing, was ap-
proved.
Cross Creek Estates
Phase I consisting of .140
single-family lots on 60.6
acres located west of Pine
and Bourbon Streets and
which is part- of the Freeport
Residential Planned Devel-
opment Project, was recom-
mended for approval by the
Planning Staff and the Plan-
ning Board provided ap-
proval of road names by Wal-
ton GIS is received; final en-
gineering approval is given
and a fence be immediately
constructed along the north
boundary at Bourbon Street.
The fence must be placed be-
fore the 'development order is
issued. Council approved the
project subject to stated con-
ditions.

Polk Street and East Bay
Loop road was recommended
for approval by the Planning
Staff and the Planning Board
subject to approval of road
names by Walton GIS. The
Council approved the project.
Bob Brown, the new owner
of Cross Creek Estates, for-
merly known as Freeport
Residential, has requested
an amendment to the Free-
port Residential Develop-
ment Project to change Phase
II from 135 quarter-acre lots
to 270 lots that are 50 feet by
100 feet and on which the
developer proposed building
"nice" homes that would sell
for about $150,000. This
change would increase total
project size from 450 to 585
lots. The developer asked for
a component of the resolution
to allow promotion of afford-
able housing to emergency
workers, school personnel
and other city staff people.
Marse reminded the
Council that originally the
Freeport Residential project
was set for 430 lots and the
developer who owned the
property at that time asked
for and received approval
from the city for a change to
450 lots.
Consultant Jack Rhodes
addressed the Council speak-
ing to requirements of-the
Land Development Code for
amending a planned develop-
ment project (PDP). Rhodes
said that he thought that the
proposed change in the num-
ber of lots in the Freeport
Residential project would
constitute a major revision to
the PDP which would require
advertising and scheduling of
a public hearing to afford the
public and adjoining prop-
erty owners the opportunity
to be heard.
MVIarse said he did not fa-
vor the request for the
change in the number of lots
and the Council seemed to
agreed.
Aworkshop'was scheduled
for November 15 to consider
up-dating the Land Develop-
ment Code and a resolution
needed for a bond sale notice
for the City Hall project was
approved.

Walton County Health


Department celebrates


65th birthday on Oct. 27


By KEN LITTLE
Walton County Citizen
Services
The Walton County
Health Department will be
celebrating its 65th birthday
this month. In celebration,
there will be a reception at
its coastal branch facility in
Santa Rosa Beach on October
27, 2006 from 2:00 to 4:00
pm, and on October 31, 2006
from 2 to 4 p.m. at the DeFu-
niak Springs Health Depart-
ment office. Stop by either
office to meet and celebrate
with the staff and see the ser-
vices the Health Department
has to offer.
The Walton County Public
Health Unit was first orga-
nized back in October 1941.
The first Public Health Unit
was located on the second
floor of the DeFuniak


Springs City Hall and con-
sisted of two waiting rooms,
two treatment rooms, an of-
fice for the director, office for
the sanitary officer and other
spaces. This unit served both
Walton and Okaloosa County.
. In March 1955, Walton
County received money for a
new health clinic since they
had outgrown the location in
City Hall. In June 1956, final
approval was given for the
construction of the new Wal-
ton County Health Depart-
ment located on North 9th
Street. The new building
opened for business in March
1957.
In September 1956, the
American Legion Auxiliary of
Freeport sponsored the open-
ing of the Walton County
Health Department Clinic in


Freeport. Hours were set for
the first Wednesday after-
noon of each month. This
clinic was open for health
cards and immunizations.
Clinic was held in the Ameri-
can Legion Home in Free-
port.
In July 2003, the Walton
County Health Department
opened a full time office in
Santa Rosa Beach. Nursing
services, environmental
health, WIC and vital statis-
tics services are offered at
this office.
Currently the Walton
County Health Department
has 56 employees working
out of the DeFuniak Springs
and Santa Rosa Beach of-
fices. Services also include
school health services and
disaster response.

Horse's death triggers


investigation
By BRUCE COLLIER that a horse was lying on its
Walton County Sheriff's side in a pen, apparently in
Office (WCSO) is looking distress.
into the circumstances that
led to euthanization of a WCSO Capt. Jason
horse at a Laurel Hill loca- Adkinson and deputies
tion on Oct. 10. arrived to find the horse,
WCSO Lt. Bryan Maule which he described as "skin
confirmed that deputies and bones," and almost
received a call on that day unable to move. The horse
from a person in the Hub appeared to have been
Presley Road area, saying deprived of food and water.


The deputies contacted a
veterinarian about the ani-
mal and were advised that
nothing could be done for it
at that stage.
Adkinson proceeded to put
the animal down with a sin-
gle shot.
Maule said that WCSO is
investigating the incident
for possible charges'of ani-
mal cruelty.


Walton County School

Board handles lighter


adjusted in December, due
to holidays and the time
limit needed to complete
the bidding process of the
two new school construction
projects.


The next meeting of the
Walton County School
Board will take place on
Monday, November 6, at 5
p.m. at the Tivoli
Administrative Complex.


By Patrick Casey
The Walton County School
Board met on Monday, Oct.
16, with a fairly light
agenda after several meet-
ings in the last six weeks
that had much heavier
slates.
The board approved trip
requests for various county
middle and high schools in
the sports of soccer and bas-
ketball. Both sports will get
under way in 30 days.
Both the Mossy Head
School and new Walton
High School are expected to
be bid out sometime in
December, if the current
timetable holds. Darrell
Barnhill was chosen to
serve on the school board
calendar committee. The
school calendar may be a lit-
tle more tedious process
than some years as new leg-
islation will keep the first
day of school from being
more than 14 days before
Labor Day. In 2007, that
would translate to a start-
ing date of August 20, at the
earliest.
Superintendent Carlene
Anderson advised the board
that the regular meeting
schedule may have to be

First Fruits
By Dr. Charles Satterwhite
Pastor, Freeport UMC

*There are some very powerful scriptures that relate to the min-
istry of giving to the Lord. I encourage you to look them up and
follow the Lord's advice. These scriptures ae as follows: (Matt.
25:14-30; Lev. 27: 30-3; Prov. 3:9-10; Neh. 10:37-9; Acts 4:34-5; 2
or. 9:6-7).
*Did you know that Jesus devoted one-third of all his parables,
and that one-sixth of all the verses in the Gospels concern the
stewardship of possessions? What is a steward? What does God
require from us as stewards? In the parable in Matt. 25, what
happens to proper and improper stewardship?
*How does money represent who we are? What does our giv-
ing tell about us? What does it tell about our trust in Christ? Do
we possess our possessions, or do our possessions possess us?
Why do you suppose that we are so sensitive about money (Lk.
12:34)? Why do you suppose hat some people get upset when the
pastor talks about giving? What have they failed to ascertain
yet? It is not that God needs our money, but that we need what
God has and what proper stewardship teaches.
*What does the word "tithe" mean? You may use a dictionary
or read Lev. 27:32. Which tenth was God's: the first tenth or the
last tenth (Lev. 23:14; Prov. 3:9-10)? What is the distinction be-
tween "first fruits" and "leftovers?" Why would God want His
tenth-first (Ex. 20:3; Matt. 6:24)? Why would God want the first
tenth and the best tenth (Num. 18:29-30; Mal. 1:6-8)?
*Why do you suppose God used such an easy percentage to
figure? Why didn't God use 7% or 9%? Why didn't God simply
say, "Do the best you can?" Is there a distinction between "tith-
ing" and "giving?" At what point does "giving" begin if, "the
tenth belongs to the Lord (Lev. 27:30)?" Why is our giving not
connected to the size of the church budget (Lev. 27:30)?
*Why should I tithe? Where is tithing taught in the Holy Scrip-
ture (Gen. 14:20; 2 Chron. 31:4-12; Neh. 10: 37-9; Mal. 3:8; Matt.
23:23)? Where is it commanded in scripture (Neh. 10:36; Matt.
23:23; Lev. 27:30)? How does tithing meet God's plan of provi-
sion for His people (Neh 13: 10-13)? Find three things that tith-
ing provides for in Scripture.
*Where are tithes to be brought (Neh. 10: 37-9; Mal. 3:10)?
How much of the tithe was brought to the storehouse (Mal. 3:10)?
These Scriptures and others like them have been used to talk
about "storehouse tithing"...a term that reflects the belief that
the Scriptures support that God's entire tithe should go to the
local church. What do we do about supporting other causes? One.
would certainly ascertain that the "tithe" is only the minimum.
We should support missions, and other worthy causes, if we de-
sire, but not with God's "tithe," (this goes to the storehouse/
church), but from our offering.
*How is tithing a "picture" of whom you really are (Matt. 6:21)?
How do your bank stubs really reveal our priorities? How can.
we "talk the talk" but not "walk the walk?" Why do you think
Jesus taught so much about what we do with our treasure (Matt.
6.21)? Do we not spend our money on the things closest to our
hearts (Matt. 6:21)?
*Why is tithing God's plan and not ours (Acts 2:45; ICor. 16:2)?
What is one of the greatest dangers that tithing free us from (1
Tim. 6:10)? What would happen if every family in our church
tithed? What would happen if every Christian tithed? What
works could we do? Do you think that we will be held account-
able for things "not done" because we failed to accord God His
due?
*What would have to happen in your life for you to begin
tithing? What, really, is keeping you from starting now? What is
more important than obeying God's Word? Do you suppose that
God would prove Himself trustworthy in taking care of you if
you obeyed Him in tithing. Sunday School 9 a.m.; Worship 10
a.m. We are proud sponsors of Angel Food Ministries.

Deonta Davison picked off
a pass and returned it 101
yards for a touchdown and
Nakita Myles scooped up
a fumble and rumbled 52
yards for another score as the
Northview Chiefs cruised to
a 46-0 district victory
against South Walton (1-7)

to a showdown with Baker

onship on Oct. 28. The win-
ner will receive a home game

playoffs while the loser will
hit the road. South Walton

onds left in the game. Tyler
Degraff's extra point won the
contest as the Royals handed


the visiting team their first

Seahawks plucked by Chiefs


By CHUCK HINSON
The 1-2A District game
was all about the Northview
Chiefs who improved to 8-0
after shutting out South Wal-
ton, 46-0 this past Friday.
The win should qualify
Northview to be ready for its
second consecutive district
championship.
For the Seahawks, the dis-
trict game loss has ended any
chances of the team advanc-
ing to district play-offs. For
Baker and Northview, their
meeting on Oct. 28 ,will de-
cide who gets the 1-2A Dis-
trict title.
Northview struck early as
Nakita Myles picked up a
Seahawk fumble-and re-
turned it 52 yards for the first
of three touchdowns with a
little more than seven min-
utes left in the first quarter.
Northview went on to score
40 more points in the game
and its defense kept the
Seahawks scoreless.
South Walton's Kenzie
Clemmons finished with 73
yards on 16 carries.
The most impressive drive


of the night for South Wal-
ton got down to the
Northview five-yard line be-
fore an interception was
thrown by Hunter Infinger


and carried back 95 yards by
Deonta Davidson for another
Chief six points.
The Seahawks face Quincy
Monroe on Friday.


SOUTH WALTON'S CHRIS DAVIES PICKED up a few
more yards for the Seahawks. Northview went on to beat
South Walton, 46-0 in the 1-2A District match.


THE WALTON BOYS golf team captured their second consecutive district title last week
in Bonifay. The squad shot a 320 as a team to defeat Panama City Arnold by 17 strokes.
Pictured are Brett Peterson,Aaron Timmons, Heath Morgan, Sean Carter and Paul McClure.

Pensacola Catholic outlasts Walton 42-30


By PATRICK CASEY
Pensacola Catholic scored
on their first four possessions
of the game to build a 28-0
lead, with the help of some
questionable refereeing, as
the Crusaders defeated the
Walton Braves 42- 30 to wrap
up the District 1, Class 2A
football title.
Walton had trouble stop-
ping junior quarterback
David Kooi as the Crusaders
threw for 188 yards on the
night, mostly in the first half,
to build the four touchdown
lead.
The Crusaders took the
opening kickoff and marched
73 yards for a score as Kooi
hit West Florida Tech trans-
fer Kyle Coulahan, an alleged
Auburn future signee, from
five yards out for a 6-0 lead.
After a Walton punt, senior
wideout Josh White took a
short' pass and raced
55 yards down the home
sideline to up the advantage
to 14-0.
Walton gambled on -a
fourth down play at midfield
on the Braves next posses-
sion and came up short, giv-
ing the Crusaders the ball at
the 50-yard line. Kooi di-
rected another drive against


By CHUCK HINSON
The Bulldogs gave it all
they had against the second-
ranked Liberty County, but
turnovers and missed plays
were too many for the Bull-
dogs and they fell 21-10.
Freeport (2-5, 0-3 district)
took a a 10-9 lead in the third
quarter on a 36-yard field
goal by Spencer Martin, but
Liberty County (6-1, 3-1) got
a big play that concerted its
lead and ultimately the. vic-


a Walton defense that
struggled to handle the
Catholic offensive line as he
hit Gavin MacNeil on a 6-
yard pass for a 21-0 lead.
Walton again struggled to
move the football on their
next possession as the
Crusaders double-teamed
wideout Alex Smith most of
the night, sometimes to the
point of pass interference
that did not get called in the
early frame of the game. Wal-
ton was forced to punt on the
last play of the first quarter
only to see Josh White return
the punt 68 yards, then
fumble the ball out of the
endzone for an apparent
touchback. During the long
walk to the other side of the
field for the start of the sec-
ond quarter, the officials
changed the call and ruled
White out of bounds at the
two-yard line, setting up a 1-
yard plunge by Ward Coker
for a 28-0 lead: Walton Head
Coach Lenny Jankowski ar-
gued the call vehemently
during the change of quar-
ters, to no avail.

After Xavier Jackson
picked off a Kooi pass, the
Braves went on a march into


tory.
Freeport racked up five
turnovers. Freeport QB
Lloyd Anderson passed for
160 yards, but had four inter-
ceptions.
In the second quarter,
Anderson connected with
Jonathon Rabbe for the a
five-yard pass that set-up the
only touchdown for the Bull-
dogs

the Crusaders' red zone.
However, Bramlet had a
pass deflect off his receiver
and into Josh White's hands
for an interception of his own
at the Pensacola Catholic 6-
yard line. To further compli-
cate matters, Bramlet got his
left ankle rolled over by a
Crusaders defender on the
play, ending his night as
Walton's quarterback and
leaving the sophomore signal
caller questionable for this
week's contest.
Xavier Jackson took over
as quarterback for the in-
jured Bramlet the remainder
of the contest and led Walton
on four touchdown drives,
three of which were touch-
down passes to senior Alex
Smith as Walton rallied to
within 42-30 in the final two
minutes of the game.
Walton's defense had no
such luck as the Braves al-

in the second half and had no
remedy for the Crusaders no-

much of the fourth quarter as

half points.
Alex Smith had a strong
performance with eight

The "Nascar" lab at WCDC


Walton Career Develop-
ment Center's students in Mr.
Blain's first block physical
science class had the oppor-
tunity to perform a creative
lab on forces and SI measure-
ments. In the' experiment,
they studied the effect of
forces on a moving object. In
this project, the moving object
was a toy car and the force of
acceleration was gravity.
The first step was to mea-
sure the weight of the car.
The average car weighed 60
grams. Next, the students
measured the length of the
ramp. It was .9 meters. Af-
ter completing this, the stu-


dents went outside to test
their hypothesis which was
that the heaviest car would
go the furthest.
The test consisted of re-
leasing each car on the
wooden ramp. After the cars
were released, one of the stu-
dents would time them until
they reached their final des-
tination. Additionally, the
students measured the dis-
tance traveled. Two trials
were completed to determine
the average speed and veloc-
ity of each car. Jeanette's yel-
low Mustang was the overall
winner.
In conclusion, the partici-
pants discovered that their


7 tiI-j


hypothesis was incorrect -
Jeanette's car was not the
heaviest Ashley's was, but
Jeanette's was the winner! In
retrospect, everyone came out
a winner because, as with all
academic projects at WCDC,


AlI






,)Pow;


this was a collaborative effort
and would not have been as
successful without the in-
volvement of Mr. Martin's
building construction class
and Mrs. Stewart's English
class.


April Churc h, a junior at Walton Career Development
Center, was named as the September Student of the Month.
At the end of eac h month, faculty and staff member s are
given the opportunity to nominate students who they feel ex-
emplify positive behavior and attitudes April, whose major
course of study for the past two year s has been Computer
Systems Technology, states that she is proud of her self for
making Student of the Month and will continue to represent
WCDC with a positive attitude As Student of the Month,
April was treated to attendance at the Walton County Cham-
ber of Commerce October F irst Friday Breakfast.
In her spare time April likes to do what most teens do -
hang out with her friends and talk on the phone Since read-
ing is a priority at WCDC, it is delightful news to hear that in
her spare time April also loves to read! Congratulations from
everyone at WCDC!

Auburn puts brakes on Florida, 'Noles and 'Canes earn victories

It was considered by many
to be the game of the year as
the No. 2 Gators and the No.
11 Auburn Tigers hit the field
in the most anticipated SEC
match-up so far this year. If
you were a fan of either, you
were glued to the set this
past Saturday and saw Au-
burn steal the game to keep
the 27-17 victory at home.


In the first half, despite the
stats, Florida was coasting
through another game with
no worries and eyen less con-
cerns about being on the road
when they entered the locker
room with a 17-11 lead. But
the second half showed a dif-
ferent story as the Gators be-
gan to fall apart about four
minutes into the third quar-

Auburn blocked a Florida
punt and returned it for a
touchdown, and also forced
the Gators to three second-
half turnovers which gave
the Tigers, who have made a
full recovery from their loss
against Arkansas on Oct. 7,
the advantage, and ulti-
mately the win.

Auburn's, run for the na-

burn has done the same to
the Florida Gators. Ranked
at the No. 2 spot,. Florilda
seemed to be unstoppable.

For Miami fans, you got to
watch a football game, a kick-
boxing match, amd every-
thing else that goes along
with bad sportsmanship.
Miami beat Florida Inter-
national 35-0, but it was the
fights on the fields' that got
more attention. The confron-
tation saw helmets flying,
shoulder pads ripped off, and
even crutches used as weap-
ons;
In all, 13 players were
ejected on both sides. Eight
from FIU and five from Mi-
ami. All w ill likely face one-
game suspension-.
But as far as the game .as,
concerned, QB Kyle Wright;
(14-of-22 for 117 yards) had
three touchdown passes for
the Hurricanes. The win also
gave Miami a season-high
for points against a Division
I-A opponent.
Miami will take on Duke
this Saturday.

CBA breaks ground on


Cessna Park facelift


By JEFFREY POWELL
A storm water
remediation project intended
to improve water quality in
Hogtown Bayou and subse-
quently Choctawhatchee Bay
is soon to begin.
Groundbreaking ceremo-
nies were held on Oct. 12 and
were attended by Sen.
Charles Clary and Walton
County Commissioner Cindy
Meadows.
"I have been working for
years on projects that will
improve water quality and
water monitoring of the
Choctawhatchee Bay," Clary


said. "I am excited to be a
part of this project."
The $250,000 project is a
cooperative effort between
the Choctawhatchee Basin
Alliance (CBA), The North-
west Florida Water Manage-
ment District (NWFWMD),
Walton County and The
South Walton Tourist Devel-
opment Council (SWTDC).
"Plans for this project
have been underway since
2001," said CBA Project
Manager Joy Brown. "We will
be very happy when this
project is completed."
. Work on the park, which


is located on north CR-393,
will include the removal of an
outdated septic system. A
new grinder pump lift station
donated by Regional Utilities
will be put in its place.
Improvements will also be
made to traffic flow and grad-
ing and redirecting of drain-
age to a treatment area.
"I'm thankful that so
many groups have come to-
gether for this project,"
Meadows said. "Thanks to
everyone involved."
The Cessna Park project is
slated for completion by next
spring, according to Brown.


Armoring ordinance draws


impassioned debate ,


By Leah Stratmann
At the regular meeting of
the Walton County Planning
Commission last week, Wal-
ton County requested the
adoption of an ordinance es-
tablishing criteria, stan-
, dards, and maintenance re-
quirements for coastal beach
armoring and asked for an
effective date to enforce these
standards.
An ordinance permitting
temporary beach armoring
was enacted after hurricane
damage threatened a num-
ber of beachfront homes in
the county. This ordinance
only addresses permanent
permits given by the Depart-
ment of Environmental Pro-
tection (DEP) to some
beachfront property owners.
DEP is now asking for a let-
ter from the county saying
the county's requirements
have been met before moving
permit requests along for fi-
nal DEP approval.
The county was allowed
to issue temporary permits
for temporary armoring.
Folks with temporary
armoring had a time period
to apply for a permanent per-
mit from DEP.
DEP regulations have a
checklist of compliance is-
sues and part of what the ap-
plicant has to do is get a let-
ter from the county stating
the proposed structure does
not violate the comprehen-
sive plan, does not violate lo-
cal setback requirements
and local zoning.
The ordinance request
says the county will not pro-
vide this letter unless appli-
cants had a design that ih-
cluded covering of the walls
of seawall armaments with
three feet of beach-compat-
ible sand which is the
amount of sand required to
not negatively affect sea
turtles. Further, slopes
should be 3-feet for every 1-
foot of armoring which would


be steep enough to cause the
turtles to nest closer to the
water.
Citizen Emmett Hildreth,
a beach property owner in
Blue. Mountain Beach ad-
dressed the commission say-
ing after Hurricane Dennis
the DEP allowed temporary
structures to be built to shore
up beach homes. These struc-
tures were upland retaining
walls built on private prop-
erty and title to the land
clearly belonged to the
homeowners. He said the
county did not own any of the
property on which these
walls were built.
"The county has no au-
thority seaward of the coastal
construction line (CCL).
There are more than 100
walls out there right now.
DEP required applications to
be filed and signed off on by
an engineer. At the time the
temporary permits were is-
sued, DEP never asked for
anything further from the
county. I was told final ap-
proval permits were issued
when the county issued a fi-
nal building permit. No-
where has it. ever been sug-
gested that our applications
would have to be amended to
include coverings and slope
steepness. This is on private
property and the county is
now meddling with private
property. We have done a
good job of reconstructing
things in Blue Mountain
Beach. We have used out of
pocket money to do this.
Please respect private prop-
erty first. Does the county
have the legal authority to
interject themselves into the
business of the DEP? I don't
believe the DEP will allow it.
I'm asking you tonight to
deny this ordinance. It is cre-
ating an enormous problem
for multitudes of people on
your beaches who pay enor-
mous taxes and are just try-
ing to look after their prop-


erty as they see fit."
Nolan Baker, an engineer
with Anderson Engineers;
who did much of the work for
Blue Mountain Beach
homeowners, said the recent
requirement letter was is-
sued by the DEP after per-
mits were issued for erection
of retaining walls. "This co6-
dition is not in everybody-
permit letter," he said. -
Sherry Rayborn, who has
lived in Blue Mountain
Beach for 30 years, said she
lives on a very high point of
land. "My property is planted
(with sea oats) and it could
be gone with any storm. Ve-
hicles drive on the toe of iiy
fledgling dune and the sea
oats I planted and the
$70,000 worth of sand I put
on the beach are all subject
to vehicle traffic. My dune
has never been three feet. A
blanket ordinance does not
make any sense because all
the beaches in Waltoni
County are not the same,''
she said.
Pat Blackshear pointed
out repeatedly that this re-
quest for an ordinance has
come from DEP, but acknowl-
edged it was unclear whether
those who have already got-.
ten permits and erected re-
taining walls and replanted
are affected. She 'suggested
the commissioners continue
the issue of adopting the or-
dinance until it can be deter-
mined why the DEP is put-
ting this language on their
letters to permit seekers.
Commissioner Terrell
made a motion to continue
the issue until it could be
clarified. The motion was sec-
onded by Randy Gardener
while chairman Albert Paris
pointed out to the large au-
dience that the planning
commission is merely a rec-
ommending body with no
power whatsoever to enact
such an ordinance. All passed
the motion.


SEN. CLARY DISCUSSES upcoming improvements to Cessna Park.


Sheriff's deputies shoot


beached whale


By BRUCE COLLIER
The shooting of an appar-
ently wounded beached
pygmy sperm whale last
week has led to controversy
over whether the shooting
was justified, and has moved
Walton County Sheriff's Of-
fice (WCSO) to examine
policy on euthanization of
wildlife.
According to a report
made by WCSO Lt. Bryan
Maule, WCSO deputies were
called to the Gulf View
Heights section of Santa
Rosa Beach. The deputies
arrived to find what was
later identified as a pygmy
sperm whale on shore, "that
appeared to have been bitten
by sharks or shot while at
sea."
Witnesses told the depu-
ties that they had seen "sev-
eral dorsal fins .circling


around" the whale while it
was still in the water.
Wildlife agencies were
contacted, and attempts were
made to get the whale back
in the water. Maule's report
said that the whale became
beached again.
A National Marine Fish-
ery Service official was con-
tacted but could not get to
the scene for between "sixty
to ninety minutes."
The deputies reportedly
observed that the whale "ap-
peared to be in pain." An-
other witness on the scene
claimed that the whale did
not seem to be in immediate
danger.
The deputies decided to
euthanize the animal, and
shot it. When an official from
te National Marine Fishery
Service arrived, the deputy
reportedly advised her as to


the situation, and her exami-
nation confirmed that the
whale had wounds from a
"cookie-cutter shark," and
other wounds that could
have been from a gunshot,
though it was not clear
whether the gunshot re-
ferred to was made by the
deputies, or came from an-
other source.
Maule's report said that
law enforcement officers are
authorized to euthanize do-
mestic animals under certain
circumstances, but that the
WCSO intends to work with
wildlife agencies to draft a
departmental policy covering
situations involving wild spe-
cies.

A necropsy was scheduled
on the whale, which is report-
edly a protected species, with
worldwide distribution.

Most matters routine at Planning Commission meeting


By Leah Stratmann
The last meeting of the
planning commission was
more or less pro forma, with
only a couple of agenda items
drawing comments from the
public. Commissioners Tom
Patton and Sally Merrifeld
were not in attendance.
In a quick and routine
manner, the commissioners
listened to applicant
Aquarian Development V,
LLC as they asked for ap-
proval of a major planned ur-
ban development order appli-
cation to build 27 single fam-
ily lots on 15.28 acres of land
with a land use designation
of neighborhood planning/
infill. The site is located at
the end of Old Ferry Road,
north of U.S. Hwy. 98. The
project met the requirement
of the comprehensive land


development code.
There was some discussion
about the project because de-
velopers were asking for a
variance in the setbacks, both
for aesthetic and preserva-
tion reasons. The proposed
layout has been designed to
preserve some large historic
oaks on the site. The neigh-
borhood plans for a New Or-
leans style development with
courtyards, cobblestone
streets and ironwork. The
habitable space will have 5-
foot setbacks and the non-
habitable areas will have 3-
foot setbacks. The variance
was granted and all passed
the development.
Mark Martin presented
the Bayou View project to the
commissioners saying the
project meets the code. The
property is located north of


U.S. 98, off of east Mack
Bayou Drive and west of
Shelter Cove Drive.
Scott Jenkins, agent, act-
ing on behalf of the owner
Flynn Morris said Morris
wished to build four single-
family units on 1.6 acres of
land with a land use designa-
tion of neighborhood plan-
ning/infill.
The developer has secured
easement all along the prop-
erty line with the exception
of one area, meaning the pro-
posed gravel road will de-
crease from 33-feet to a width
of 18-feet.
Speaking on behalf of the
county, Greg Graham said the
road is a low use road and
with proper signage, the de-
crease in width should not be'
a problem, noting that the

signage would be comparable
to those warning of a one-lane
bridge ahead.
Homeowners on the street
have deeded egress to the
area. The developer wants to
push through a cul-de-sac
and the people on Shelter
Cove Drive want him to ac-
cess the property from Mack
Bayou Drive.
Commissioner Tom Terrell
said, "I can foresee some
safety issues." Commissioner
Butch Lawrence commented
that road issues are not ad-
dressed in the land develop-


ment code.
Randy Gardener made a
motion that the application
be approved subject to the 33-
foot right-of-way problem
from the north to the subject
property with the exception
of the 12-foot section and that
appropriate signage be in-
stalled. o Seconded by
Lawrence and passed unani-
mously.
R.B.S. Partners LLC re-
quested approval of a major
development on 4.18 acres
with a land use designation'
of rural village consisting of


3,500 square feet of office
space, 20,250 square feet of
retail space, and 30,100
square feet of warehouse
space. The land is located at
the northeast intersection of
Hwy 90 and Laurel Street in
the DeFuniak Springs area.
On behalf of the county,
Mark Martin said the project
meets code, but the propor-
tionate fair share has yet to
be worked out and the appli-
cant has requested a side-
walk buyout. The project was
approved as written by all
commissioners.

A Chick-Flick of Biblical proportions


By BRUCE COLLIER
Michael 0. Sajbel's film
"One Night with the King"
has just come to the area. The
variety of opinions that have
attached to it proves once
again that few books are as
controversial as the Bible,
especially when given the
Hollywood treatment.
The mere fact that movies
are even made about Bible
stories seems to irritate some
people, but in a world of "Hos-
tel," "Saw" and "The Omen,
Part 87," it's good to hear
from the brighter side of
things.
If you want to make an
analysis of how close th'fi m
sticks to the book, I vwouild
suggest you get out your Old
Testament and read the book
of Esther. It's one of the
shorter books in the Bible.
While you're at it, you
might also want to read
Tommy Tenney and Mark An-
drew Olsen's "Hadassah," a
novelized version of the story
of Esther, on which the movie
is also based.
However you approach it,
this is essentially a chick
flick, with more than a little


air of romance novel about it.
Be warned, gentlemen. If
you are expecting C.B.
deMille-style battles, sword
fights, and general lascivious
pagan carryings-on, you will
be disappointed. This is not
"The Ten Commandments,"


"Samson and Delilah," or
"Ben Hur." It's not even
"Barabbas," which can be en-
joyed simply as a gladiator
movie if you have a fast-for-
ward button.

Beach mouse critical habitat is set


By DOTTY NIST
A total of 6,194 acres in the
Florida Panhandle and
coastal Alabama have been
designated as critical habitat
for three species of native
beach mice.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service made the designa-
tion, encompassing 13 coastal
"units," official on Oct. 12.
Five of those units, located
in Walton, Okaloosa and Bay
counties, are devoted to the
Choctawhatchee beach
mouse.
The designation was the
result of a court order by the
U.S. District Court for the
Southern District of Ala-
bama, which required the
wildlife service to revise the
critical habitat for the
Perdido Key beach mouse
and the Choctawhatchee
beach mouse.
The third beach mouse
species involved in the desig-
nation is the St. Andrews
beach mouse, which inhabits
Bay and Gulf counties.
Sandra Sneckenberger of
the U.S. Fish and Wildlife's
Panama City office said that
the function of the critical
habitat is educational and
that the designation does not
afford the species additional
protection over that currently


required by law.
"This critical habitat des-
ignation will provide benefits
to the beach mice by inform-
ing the public of areas that
are important to the species
recovery and identifying
where conservation actions
would be most effective," said
Sam D. Hamilton, southeast
regional director for the wild-
life service.
Critical habitat areas are
considered essential to the
preservation of a protected
species. Designating critical
habitat areas does not affect
the ownership of the proper-
ties that are included, nor
does it establish a refuge, pre-
serve or any type of conser-
vation area, or allow govern-
ment or public access to pri-
vate property. It does not in-
clude existing developed sites
within the designated area,
roads, driveways, buildings,
or similar features.
Federal agencies are re-
quired to consult with the
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
with regard to any activities
within critical habitat areas
that they plan to undertake,
fund or permit that may im-
pact the habitat. A critical
habitat designation may af-
fect private landowners along
the coast when they under-


take activities requiring a
federal permit, such as ex-
pansion of an existing struc-
ture, the construction of
swimming pools, etc.
Owners of undeveloped
land within critical habitat
areas are required to seek an
incidental take permit from
the wildlife service before
they undertake develop-
ment, so that a determination
can be made whether the ac-
tivity would negatively im-
pact the habitat or not.
Negative impacts are
weighed against the benefits
of the proposed activity, and
exclusions may be allowed for
economic reasons, in cases
where the activity would not
result in the extinction of the
species, or where conserva-
tion plans benefiting the spe-
cies are already in place.
As proposed several
months ago, the critical habi-
tat designation area encom-
passed slightly more acreage,
a total of 6,217 acres.
Sneckenberger said the
main changes from the des-
ignation as previously pro-
posed were the addition of a
small area in Gulf Islands
National Seashore and the
addition and subtraction of
small portions of the Tyndall
Air Force Base property.


Over 80 percent of the
critically designated property
is owned by the federal gov-
ernment and the Florida Di-
vision of Recreation and
Parks. About 18 percent of it
is privately owned.
In Wa.lton County, critical
habitat units encompass
about 537 acres in the Topsail
Hill, Grayton Beach, and
Deer Lake areas.
Most of this property is
found within the boundaries
of Topsail Hill Preserve State
Park, Grayton Beach State
Park, and Deer Lake State
Park, but some private acre-
age makes up part of the des-
ignation area, particularly
land adjacent to the parks.
The designation acreage
excludes the 75-acre
WaterColor/WaterSound de-
velopments and the 10-acre
Stallworth Preserve since
beach mouse management
plans are in place on those
private properties.

Additional information on
the critical habitat designa-
tion is available by contact-
ing Sandra Sneckenberger at
the U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service at (850) 769-0552,
ext. 239 or by accessing the

BCC calls on Legislature to fix insurance crisis


In response to what has
become an insurance crisis in
Walton County and other
Florida communities, the
members of the Walton
County Commission (BCC)
have submitted a resolution
urging the Florida Legisla-
ture to call a special session
to study and enact legislation
addressing the crisis.
According to the resolu-
tion, the commissioners note
that homeowners'-Asurance
policy costs have continued to
rise at outrageous rates;
and insurance agents who


write Citizens Property In-
surance Corporation (Citi-
zens) policies reportedly re-
ceive higher commissions.
The BCC suggested that the
commission percentage paid
on various policies be ad-
justed to reflect a reasonable
cost of insurance.

The resolution says, "Resi-
dential real estate closings
are reportedly being can-
celled every day due to the
high cost of insurance, lead-
ing to a loss of the associated
revenue generated by docu-


mentary stamps and the
higher commissions would
appear to reduce the incen-
tive for an agent to push for
private industry to write
homeowners' policies. Citi-
zens' goal of reducing the
numbers of policies it writes
is seemingly failing spectacu-
larly and the quality of life of
our families and seniors is
declining due to costs associ-
ated with higher energy
costs,
"Our seniors and families
are more subject&to~ 'treclo-
sure and may have 'to go


without insurance and may
be being driven out of Florida
because of the insurance cri-
sis and many families are
also dealing with the high
costs associated with the in-
crease in variable interest
rate mortgages. The Florida
Legislature needs to be pro-
active by passing the 'sink-
hole bill' (concerning insur-
ance coverage and insurance
rates) to address the issues
we are now facing."

The resolution was
adopted on Oct. 10, 2006.


TUESDAY'S HIGH WINDS and rough seas left the sail-
boat Margaretville on the rocks. The vessel was grounded
near Jolly bay next to US. 331.


Prominence DRI tobe

reconsidered in November


By Dotty Nist
A 30-day continuance has
been approved for the Promi-
nence development of re-
gional impact (DRI) by the
Walton County Board of
County Commissioners
(BCC), but there has been
progress in resolving dis-
agreement with the county
planning department, ac-
cording to a Prominence
spokesperson.
Appearing before the BCC
on Oct. 10, attorney George
Ralph Miller reported that
the applicant, Deer Lake De-
velopment Company, believes
that progress is being made
in reaching an understand-
ing with planning officials
regarding vegetative preser-
vation and buffer issues.
"We understand what we
want to do," Miller com-
mented, adding that now the
goal is "to figure out how to
do it." Miller requested the
30-day continuance, which
was approved unanimously
by the BCC. .
Proponents of the DRI, a


new phase of the Prominence
development, have been
seeking approval since late
August. In mid-September,
the Walton County Planning
Commission recommended
for approval subject to traf-
fic and vegetation issues be-
ing resolved.
Consideration of the DRI
was then continued from the
Sept. 26 BCC meeting to al-
low for additional discussions
on the latter.
Prominence DRI is pro-
posed as a mixed-use 80-acre
development containing 650
dwelling units, 132 hotel
units, 12-bed and breakfast
rooms, and 218,000 square
feet of commercial.
The development site is lo-
cated both north and south
of CR-30A about two miles
west of WaterSound Park-
way.
The proposed DRI is
scheduled for consideration
by the BCC on Tuesday, Nov.
14 at the South Walton
County Courthouse Annex,
at 5 p.m. or later.

CLAIM: Voting machines are vulnerable to viruses, glitches, and computer fraud.
FACT: Florida election law requires all 67 counties to implement rigid security procedures
and counter-measures to prevent criminal tampering with elections (Source: F.S. 101.015).
Walton County exceeds state security procedures.
CLAIM: Walton County must implement instant runoff elections that eliminate the primary
election.
FACT: Instant runoff elections are prohibited by Florida election law and primary elections
are mandated by Florida election law (Source: F.S. 100.061). Instant runoff elections area
matter for the State to decide, not the county SOE. Unless the state legislature passes new
laws that would allow an instant runoff election, it remains unlawful in all Florida counties.
CLAIM: With a printed receipt, voters can audit their own votes against a recorded ballot.
FACT: Florida law prohibits a voter from leaving a polling place with proof of how they
voted. Any paper voting receipt is illegal (Source: F.S. 104.20 & F.S. 104.23). Receipts have
never been issued to voters in Florida. Use of a paper ballot receipt may tempt a voter to
exchange their receipt (vote) for something of monetary value.
CLAIM: Walton County does not perform mandatory audits after any election.
FACT: Under certain conditions, the legislature may provide for an independent audit of a
voting system in any county (Source: F.S. 101.591). We already perforfi'h-house audits be-
fore, during, and after every election. Real-time audit logs are required by all certified vot-
ing systems used in the State of Florida.

We are preventing fraud before it happens, and
there has never been any criminal tampering with
electronic voting equipment in Walton County.

Elections are running smoothly in Walton County.
Front-end security is paramount in keeping your vote safe.
I have the knowledge, common sense, and expertise
to continue doing this important job.
Keep eight years of real election experience working for you.

fencing, and memorial ash
garden) to all owners of plots
at the cemetery.
The voting ballots, with re-


turn envelopes, will be
mailed to eligible plot own-
ers and hopefully contain a
report from the cemetery
board's "appointed study
committee" on the proposed
project. Also enclosed could
be a description from the de-
velopers on how the ease-
ment will benefit the cem-
etery in regard to beautifica-


tion and future monetary
benefits.
All ballots will be sent to
those owners as shown on
record by the secretaries lat-
est address files. Call Ed
Moreau at 267-2424 or Anita
Sloan at 267-3714 to verify
ownership or make sure the
owner address is correct.
The reason for an early


mail out is because many of
the owners live out of town
and this will give them time
to return their vote.
November 10 will be the
deadline for returning bal-
lots. This ballot mail out pro-
gram will start immediately
so that the vote count can be
announced on Saturday, No-


vember 11 at the Santa Rosa
Beach Community Church,
located on 3524 U.S. Hwy. 98
in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida.
The meeting will start at 10
a.m.
All returned ballot enve-
lopes will "only" be opened at
the general meeting (no prox-
ies) and the results an-


nounced (for or against) af-
ter the count is tabulated.
Also those who have not
already signed up for a posi-
tion on the four vacancies on
the cemetery board of direc-
tors should do so at the No-
vember 11 meeting.

Theater Review

"The Dinner Party" is Neil Simon for grown-ups


By BRUCE COLLIER
Okaloosa-Walton. College
(OWC) has chosen, to pro-
duce one of Neil Simon's
darker, more adult comedy/
dramas, with "The Dinner
Party." The play opened on
Oct. 18 and continues
through Oct. 21 at OWC's
Sprint Theater on the
Niceville campus.
If you follow modern
American theater at all, you
know Neil Simon. Many
people know him for his most
famous comedy, the eter-
nally-produced "The Odd
Couple," which the author
modified and re-produced as
"The Female Odd Couple,"'
and which shows no signs of
ever not being staged some-
where in the world.
It is easy to dismiss Simon
as a jokey, gag-driven writer,
more interested in a quick
laugh than in anything more
substantial. Over the years,
however, he has delved into
more personal areas, coming
up with memory plays
("Brighton Beach Memoirs"),
plays about tragic incidents
in his life ("Chapter Two"),
and nostalgic tributes to his
apprentice years ("Laughter
on the 23rd Floor").
"The Dinner Party" deals
with marriage, divorce, and
love, more or less in that or-
der. Set in a private dining
room in Paris, three men and
three women, married, di-
vorced, and remarried in
various combinations with
each other, meet for dinner.


None is especially anxious to
be here, and the real purpose
of the evening is not revealed
until near the end.
The end is rather anticli-
mactic. Getting there is what
matters.
None of the characters are
very admirable. The men,
Claude, Albert and Andre,
are affluent, self-centered,
and sexually opportunistic.
The women, Mariette,
Yvonne, and Gabrielle, are a
bit more sympathetic, partly
because they all have been
victimized.to some degree by
the men.
However, revenge is not
the point of the evening.
Once all have resigned them-
selves to staying and riding
out the party, each proceeds
to come to a reckoning, with
themselves and each other.
In addition to chewing over
old wounds and injuries, each
recalls the good times and
manages to remember that,
for each of them, it started
with love.

Simon is still, above all, a
comedy writer, and "The Din-
ner Party" has its share of
laughs. Unlike some of his
earlier work, the laughs here
come from the characters,
rather than just contrived
situations. The dialogue is
sharp and more formal than
some of Simon's other plays,
approaching at times the
high comedy of Moliere. The
characters' names are all
French, and play is set in


THE REASON WE'RE ALL HERE, told by Gabrielle
(standing, Tiffany Smith) to Mariette (seated, Mary Ann
Averitte) in "The Dinner Party."


Paris, so comparisons are
unavoidable.
Director Clint Mahle
staged the play in the round,
which causes the actors to
have to play to the edges.
This can lead to large dis-
tances between characters in
a scene, and to characters
facing out at odd moments,
simply to give the audience
as full a view as possible at
all times. Even so, this is only
a minor interference.
The quality of acting is
high. Tiffany Smith
(Gabrielle) and Tim Norton
(Andre) are a little young, for
their characters, but they
concentrate on their inten-
tions, and don't waste time
attempting to"act" older.
Those intentions are a

little unclear, and they are
probably the least likable
.characters in the play, but
that's the writing, not the
acting.
Frank Rosenbaum and
Rachel Hoskins play well off
of each other as Albert and
Yvonne. Rosenbaum
achieves a sustained hap-
lessness, with just enough of
a "why me?" whine to be ap-
pealing, not annoying.'
Hoskins has a breezy energy
and a sense of histrionics
that allows her to be funny
and pathetic at the same
time.
Bruce Culpepper
(Claude) and Mary Ann
Averitte (Mariette) have
some of the best and funni-
est scenes in the play.
Averitte is small and dark,
Culpepper tall and fair, and
the contrast works well.

Also well-contrasted is
the pair's energy, with
Averitte manic and restless
and Culpepper stolid and
forceful. Culpepper started
acting only a few years ago,
and his work with a variety
of area theaters has en-
dowed him with increas-
ingly impressive acting
chops.
The set, as always with
OWC and designer Mahle, is
in perfect taste, and very ac-
tor-friendly. An actor him-
self, Mahle knows how to
build for them.
"The Dinner Party" suc-
ceeds on all counts, and
would make an elegant ad-
dition to your weekend
plans.
