Commissioners


hope to opt out


from new ATV rule


By DOTTY NIST
Recent state legislation
called for liberalizing ATV
use.
However, judging from re-
cent action, the Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC) is of
the opinion that this was not
a good idea, at least not for
the local area.
In this year's session, the
Florida Legislature passed a
law allowing ATVs to be rid-
den on, all county roads
posted with a speed limit of
less than 35 miles per hour,
with the provision that indi-
vidual counties could opt out
of thq new law if they so
chose.
Among the concerns iden-
tified have been possible li-
ability to the county as a re-
sult of the new ATV rule,
along with possible damage
to roads.
At the Nov. 28 BCC regu-
lar meeting, District 3 Com-
missioner Larry Jones
brought up the matter and


stated that he believed opt-
ing out of the legislation
would be advisable for Wal-
ton County.
Jones further proposed
that the commissioners have
the legal department prepare
an ordinance that if adopted
would negate the new state
legislation on Walton County
roads.
He said that it is his un-
derstanding that only one
public hearing is required to
adopt the ordinance, but he
suggested holding two, one in
DeFuniak Springs and one
in south Walton County, in
order to allow for input from
citizens countywide.
The BCC voted unani-
mously to direct staff to pre-
pare the ordinance to opt out
of the legislation. The draft
ordinance is expected to be
completed by early Jan. 2007
or before.
The two public hearings
will be publicly announced,
and will be open to all mem-
bers of the public.


By PATRICK CASEY
The Walton County School
Board met on Monday,
November 20, at the Tivoli
Administrative Complex to
discuss a variety of items
including the building of the
new school at Mossy Head as
well as a new Walton High
School.
Board members were
dismayed to hear that no
contractors had chosen to bid
on the Mossy Head School
project. Architect W.R. Elliott
Jr., of Elliott-Marshall-Innes,
told school board members
that his firm had been
working on the plans since
the inception of the project
and had created nearly 700
pages of drawings and
revisions on the project.
Bidders, however, have been
hard to come by, mainly due
to what the contractors
believe to be too short a time
line to complete the project
without the contractors
taking a financial hit in
guaranteeing that they can
stick to the timeline included
with the project bid.
Elliott stated to the board
the grim news, "No bids for
the Mossy Head School have
been received. Two bidders
seemed interested. We
extended the bid date. Calls
were made to likely bidders.
The reason for the lack of


bidder interest: other bid
activity, one complaint for
having to. buy plans, and
having to share the entire
monetary risk for not staying
on schedule for a hard bid.
Contractors said they don't
bid on hard bid projects
anymore. We need to push the
date back on the bid for
Walton High School while we
try to bid the Mossy Head
School."
Board- members were
dismayed with the news, but
agreed to look at changing
the project timeline as well as
making the cost for buying
the school plans refundable
to those that wanted to check
out the scope of the project,
but that did not win the bid
for it. The Mossy Head School
project will hope to have bids
in by December, with the new
Walton High School looking
at a January bid date, though
that could change depending
on how far along the process
at Mossy Head moves along.
"I don't know if we will be
able to build two schools at
once," Walton County school
board member Mark Davis
said. "It seems like two years
per project is a more realistic
number, or what we are
seeing from the market."

Freeport passes fair



share ordinance


By BEN GRAFTON
In a low energy, lightly
attended meeting at City
Hall, the Freeport City
Council addressed a number
of issues beginning with City
Planner Latilda Henninger's
presentation of the second
reading of a "Proportionate
Fair Share Program"
ordinance which is now
required by Florida law.
This ordinance provides a
mechanism which allows
development to continue
even though traffic
infrastructure concurrency
does not meet established
standards. The ordinance
amends the Land
Development Code and


allows development to
continue if the developer
enters into a binding
agreement with the city to
contribute a "fair share" of
the funds that will be needed
to correct the traffic
infrastructure variance that
will exist. To conclude the
agreement the city must
commit to provide funds to
complete the improvement.
The "Proportionate Fair
Share Program" ordinance
was approved by the Council.
City Attorney Clayton
Adkinson presented the first
reading of a proposed
annexation ordinance for the
160-acre Cornerstone
property which abuts the


southern boundary of the
Owls Head development east
of U.S. 331. The Council
approved the reading and
advertising for the second
reading which is scheduled
for the first Council meeting
in December.
The Council also approved
a resolution to increase fees
for unloading barges of rock
at the port to 75 cents per ton,
if loaded directly to trucks,
and $1 per ton, if unloaded to
the ground at the port.
The Council approved an
expenditure, not to exceed
$20,000, requested by Tony
Peters of Peters Municipal

rezones


10 acres
By LEIGH STRICKLAND
The DeFuniak Springs.
City Council met Monday
night in regular session at
City Hall.
A public hearing was held
regarding the rezoning of a-
10 acre piece of property on
the west side of North 20th
Street. Kevin Smith with
Harvest Land Development
said that the change, from
agrit cultural to R-2 multi-
family residential, was
requested with the intent to
build duplexes and single
unit dwellings on the
property. City Planner Greg
Scoville called the change
."consistent with the
.comprehensive plan" and
recommended approval. An
ordinance for the change was
adopted by the council.
Another change to the
makeup of the city was
introduced to council
members. Turning Point
Properties requested
annexation into the city of
two lots in the Quail Ridge
Estates subdivision, located
on U.S. 331 South. The lots
are adjacent to the current
boundaries across the
highway. The council
authorized Scoville to
prepare an ordinance for
annexation and to advertise
for its adoption. None of the
other lots in the subdivision
are in the city limits, but
access to city water and
sewer is readily available.
Dawn Moliterno of the
Walton County Chamber of
Commerce presented to the
council the business plan for
the Walton County Workforce
Housing Resource Center.
According to the document,
the center will act "as a third
party intermediary between
the consumer, private
enterprise, and local county
government" and will "assist

Nothing new on US 331 funding shortfall


By BEN GRAFTON
On November 16 in a
conference room of the Hilton
Sandestin Beach Golf Resort,
a public meeting of the
Northwest Florida
Transportation Corridor
Authority -(NFTCA) was
conducted. The major portion
of this meeting was devoted
to a discussion of what action
can be taken to improve the
safety and capacity of U.S.
331 from its intersection with
U.S. 98 to the Alabama state
line.
The elected officials and
state employees who
discussed the issues were in
general agreement that U.S.
331, including the Clyde
Wells bridge over
Choctawhatchee Bay, should
have four lanes over its whole
length in Walton County.
They also agreed that
funding is the greatest
impediment to building the
four-lane road.
Both State Representative
Don Brown and Walton
County Administrator
Ronnie Bell said that the first
requests to four-lane U.S. 331
were made 25 to 30 years ago.


Bell placed the first request
in 1976.
Department of
Transportation (DOT)
spokesmen told the assembly
that there is a six project
work plan to convert U.S. 331
into a multilane highway
from its intersection with
U.S. 98 to Interstate 10.
Right-of- way procurement
for the first of these projects,
four lanes from U.S. 98 to the
Clyde Wells bridge is
complete. Funding for
construction is allocated.
Work is scheduled and
expected to extend into 2008.
Right-of-way procurement
for the third project in the
group, four-lanes from the
Clyde Wells bridge to the
Freeport by-pass, is expected
to begin in 2006 and design
is underway. However, no
funds have been allocated for
mitigation or construction.
A two lane bypass around
Freeport from just south of
SR-20 to the Owls Head
development is a part of the
fourth project in the group
and it is presently under
construction and expected to
be complete, in November


2007. The bridges and right-
of-way in this project will
accommodate four traffic
lanes; so the final phase,
which is not scheduled or
funded at this time will call
for construction of two
additional traffic lanes.
Except for preliminary
design and engineering, the
other three projects in this
work plan, including the all-
important second project, a
four-lane bridge over the
Choctawhatchee Bay, are all
unscheduled and unfunded.
Matthew Click, an
intergovernmental
coordinator for the Florida
Turnpike Enterprise which
builds and manages toll
roads, addressed the meeting.
He said his job was to go
throughout the state looking
for opportunities where the
Enterprise could participate.
He said issues were common
all across the State. Gas tax
funding has not kept up with
inflation. More and more user
financing is projected for
future projects.
Click said that no
Enterprise action on the
bridge, if requested and


approved, could be projected
before 2010. That might
mean bridge completion in
2014.
Toll collection on,
Enterprise projects is used as
co-lateral for funding.
However, tolls from a
projected bridge would only
generate about half .of the
money needed to build the
bridge (possibly as much as
$500 million) and the balance
would have to come from
other sources.
Click displayed a chart
showing the relationship of
cash tolls and Sun Pass tolls.
He noted that Sun Pass users
enjoy a saving of about 25%
over cash tolls which now run
about $3. He then talked
about a projected cash toll of
$5 per trip with a
corresponding Sun Pass cost
of $3.00.
Click said the Enterprise
needs input from local
officials and the public to go
forward with a U.S. 331
project.
Edward Prescott of the
Florida Department of
Transportation and ex-officio
member of NFTCA


commented that there are
several options available for
a four-lane bridge over the
Bay. Noting that the existing
bridge is fairly new, he said a
parallel two-lane structure
could be considered. He said
widening of the causeway is
not an option as it would not
be permitted (presumably by
the Department of
Environmental Protection).
Other options include a four-
lane bridge constructed on
the existing causeway or a
new shore-to-shore four-lane
bridge.
Residents who spoke from
the floor at the meeting
generally opposed a toll
bridge. One person said that
his employees have told him
that because of already high
transportation costs getting
to and from work, a toll
bridge would force them to
seek work elsewhere.
Representative Brown
said that the Northwest
Florida legislative delegation
supports improvements for
U.S. 331 but that competition
for funds is intense. He said
funding for reduced
classroom sizes in schools has


tied up substantial state
funds that might otherwise
be available for
infrastructure improvement.
He went on to say, "It's
decision time." He wants to
hear from public and local
governments about desired
action.
Brown noted that NFTCA
has the authority to actually
undertake financing the U.S.
331 work. This approach
could include toll or private/
public options..
Brown also said that
Florida is known as a
grantorr state." That is, for
every $1 collected for federal
gas tax, only 80 cents is
received back from
Washington for use in the
state.
In response to a question
from the floor about when
U.S. 331 would be four-lane
to the Alabama line, Randall
McElheney, chairman of the
NFTCA said work on U.S. 331
has a high priority with the
board. He said NFTCA will be
in a much better position to
address this question when it
holds its master plan 'public
meetings in March 2007.

DFS police to hold supper and discussion


A Laurel Hill man has
been arrested and charged
with multiple counts of grand
theft from a Paxton youth
baseball league.
A report by Walton County
Sheriff's Office (WCSO)
states that Sean Keith
McMillan, 38, of Laurel Hill,
was arrested on Nov. 12. Ac-
cording to the report, a com-
plaint was made by members
of the Paxton Dixie Youth
Board.
McMillan is alleged to
have written three checks to
himself as reimbursement for
payments he had made to a
sporting goods store in Pace.
Those payments reportedly
had never been made.
McMillan is also alleged to
have used Dixie Youth funds
to make three payments on a
personal Southern Link bill,
and to have kept funds col-
lected from registration and
opening day dinners, which


he was supposed to have de-
posited into the Dixie Youth
Baseball Inc. account.
According to the report,
the total amount allegedly
misappropriated was
$9,984.68.
Christa Merrifield-
Mitchell, president of the
Paxton Dixie Youth Board,
issued a written statement:
"The Paxton Dixie Youth
has elected new officers and
Board members for the 2007


season representing Laurel
Hill, Paxton, Florala,
Lockhart, and the Darlington
communities. We are excited
about moving forward and
playing ball this year with
our new lighted fields and
new concession stand. The
Paxton Dixie Youth registra-
tion will be underway soon
and we anticipate a very suc-
cessful year with the children
and parents of our communi-
ties."

EDITOR'S COMMENT


Your tax dollars at work


By RON KELLEY
At a recent meeting of the Walton County Commission, at
the behest of the Walton County Chamber of Commerce, the
commissioners voted to give the Chamber $55,000 a year for
the next'two years to help fund a "Workforce Housing Re-
source Center" at the Chamber headquarters in Santa Rosa
Beach.
The city governments of Freeport and DeFuniak Springs
have also been asked to contribute thousands to this plan.
I see so many problems with this that I hardly know where
to begin and it appears that I am not the only one.
In a Nov. 9 letter to Chamber President Dawn Moliterno,
Bill Imfeld, the county's finance director, posed some serious
questions about the plan.
In the letter, Imfeld states that "There has been no finan-




Editor:
I believe our nation is on the threshold of a major revival,
perhaps not equaled since the Great Awakening. The signs
are there some of them subtle, some not-so-subtle. One
important sign is what appears to be the re-emergence of
Jesus Christ in Christmas.
Christians have long known that it is more important to
be "correct" than "politically correct." Christmas is about
Christ, and that is "correct," accurate and true to history
and tradition. -Santa Claus, reindeer, wreaths, Christmas
trees are fine, but what it is all about is the birth of the
Messiah. Christmas heralds the turning point in history.
There is now evidence that our prayers over the last few
years are being answered. Hollywood, Big Business they
seem to be finally getting the message: There are believers
out there! God is alive and well in the popular culture!
Yes, the Christ-child is creeping back into Christmas. No,
let me rephrase that Christ is marching triumphantly back
into Christmas. Hollywood is recognizing it, as are Wal-Mart,
Kohl's, Sears, Macy's and others. The tide is starting to turn.
The new movie, "The Nativity Story," to open Dec. 1 in more
than 3,000 theaters nationwide, will be a welcome reprieve
from the usual holiday fare of action, violence, cornball com-
edy, and even those films that revolve around "the holiday
season."
Incidentally, "The Nativity Story" will make history when
it premieres at the Vatican. That hasn't happened before, as
far as a feature film is concerned.
,,People, especially families, will want to go together to see
this remarkable movie. Children will want to see it. Church
members will go in groups. And yes, non-Christians will go
out of curiosity. And how they will be rewarded not just by
a wonderful, dramatic, engaging movie, but one that tells
the ultimate truth of what Christmas is all about.
I believe the movie is destined to become a Christmas clas-
sic. So move over "It's a Wonderful Life" and "Home Alone."
You've got some real, make that REAL, competition.
The movie is incredibly true to the authenticity of Scrip-
ture. Filmed in extraordinarily vivid color, it begins
with a passage from Jeremiah. The rest of the movie refer-
ences and quotes the Bible. The script was written by a Chris-
tian, Mike Rich, whose credits include "Finding Forrester."
Costuming and settings are authentic. In short, it is a near
perfect movie.
With all the fallout from fallen leaders and election turn-
abouts, Christians have an opportunity this year to put aside
political agendas and really focus on what Christmas is all
about. The distractions are behind us. Let us not miss this
wonderful, crucial opportunity to proclaim the birth of our
Lord in the highways and byways, yes, even in the market-
places and the movies.
Dr. Ted Baehr
Chairman of the
Christian Film and
Television Commission

cial 'input' into the development of the project." He asked
whether the county is also being given credit for the value
of the land they donated and notes that there was "no in-
dication of how planned dollar expenditures were devel-
oped." He also pointed out that "there doesn't appear to be
any partnering with private industry on this."
These are very good questions. In fact, in my opinion,
the questions were a lot better than the answers.
Regarding financial input, Moliterno replied that
Growth Management Director Pat Blackshear and "sev-
eral representative from planning (are) on the Task Force."
Regarding the donated land, Moliterno wrote, "The land
was not a factor in this project. The county has donated
the land, which we are very appreciative of, but this project
was something that required stand-alone attention."
As for expenditures, she said, "Most of the focus in the
budget is on hiring the specialized personnel to manage
and execute the center" (which will be housed in the Cham-
ber office).
Regarding partnering with private business entities,
Moliterno said they are trying to raise $65,000 "from the
private sector."
In closing, Imfeld wrote, "Just 40 days ago, the BCC
gave $8 million back to the county's taxpayers in the form
of a millage rate reduction...I am unable at this time to
make any recommendation of a funding source, should the
board approve spending $55,000."
Moliterno replied, "I understand the unfortunate turn
of events with the county budget."
Faithful Reader, I never thought I'd live long enough to
hear an $8 million dollar tax rate reduction to Walton
County citizens described as an "unfortunate turn of

A supplementary
meeting of the school board
was held on Tuesday,
November 21, to welcome
Sharon Roberts to the
District 3 seat previously
occupied by Donnie
Richardson. The board also
.elected Mark Davis the
chairman of the board for
the next year with Darrell
Barnhill to serve as the
vice chairman. Board
members agreed to move
meetings to the first and
third Tuesdays each month
beginning with' the first

Meetings will remain at
the Tivoli Complex and
start at 5 p.m., as has
previously been done.
The next regularly

events" by anyone.
First, the Chamber has, by their own admission, been work-
ing on this for 10 months. Why, then, should a budget request
not have been made a little sooner say, during the budget
process?
To our commissioners and city council members, I can only
say, "What were you thinking?" Does anyone really think
there's going to be a flood of people pouring into this "Center"
to find out about housing enough to justify two highly-paid,
full-time positions? And what will these staff members be doing
when they're not answering the deluge of calls on "workforce
housing?"
This workforce housing crisis is, in my opinion, the largest,
most overblown, non-issue in the county. Getting government
involved in private-sector business is nearly always a colossal
mistake. This is a private-sector issue. The real estate market
has already begun to flatten out. It's simply a case of supply
and demand.
Having talked with a lot of the people who are commuting
from north Walton to work at the resorts and stores in south
Walton, I was surprised to find very little enthusiasm for mov-
ing closer to work. What the majority of those folk want is
better pay enough to allow them to afford to make the com-
mute and stay where they are. This is surely a much less ex-
pensive solution than pouring our tax dollars into a money-
pit.
If those wishing to come here can't find a house they can
afford, there will be less houses sold, prices will go down and,
miraculously, become more "affordable." If developers can't fill
their multi-million dollar condos sitting on million dollar-per-
acre land, they'll develop less expensive homes on less expen-
sive land.
In short, the problem, if it truly exists at all, was created by
the market and it is the market and not government that can
create the solution.
Getting government officials involved, who generally toss
our hard-earned dollars at any problem that arises, is...well,
an unfortunate turn of events.

New Cottonseed
Payment Program


October 31 marked the
start date for cotton produc-
ers and first handlers to sign-
up for a new program de-
signed to help them recover
from 2005 hurricane losses,
announced Jeff Barber, Wal-
ton Executive Director for
the U.S. Department of
Agriculture's Farm Service
Agency (FSA).
The $15 million 2005 Cot-
tonseed Payment Program
(CPP) applies to counties de-
clared natural disaster areas
by President George W. Bush,
and contiguous counties, as a
result of damage from 2005
hurricanes Katrina, Ophelia,
.Rita and Wilma.
The sign-up deadline for
CPP is Dec. 29,2006, and ap-
plications must be submitted
by 11:59 P.M. that day, ac-
cording to the CPP final rule
published in the Federal Reg-
ister. The FSA will adminis-
ter CPP payments on behalf
of USDA's Commodity Credit
Corporation (CCC). The
Emergency Supplemental
Appropriations Act for De-
fense, the Global War on Ter-
ror, and Hurricane Recovery
of 2006 authorizes the pro-
gram.
Any variety of 2005-crop,
upland cottonseed and extra
long staple (ELS) cottonseed
produced and ginned in the
United States is eligible. Pro-
ducers and first-handlers
must meet certain eligibility
requirements to receive CPP
benefits.
The CCC will calculate the
payment quantity of cotton-
seed. Eligible applicant may
not receive more than the
national average price of
2005-crop cottonseed as de-
termined by CCC, or $98 per
ton,, multiplied by the
applicant's total eligible pay-
ment quantity (ton-basis).
Payments are based on 2003
cottonseed production data.
A CPP fact sheet of eligible
counties is posted on-line at:

pect. The scent trail led the
deputies through the back-
yard of a residence on
Crowder Chapel Road. The
trail led to the front of an old
van. Looking through the
window, the deputies saw a
marijuana plant growing in
plain view. '
In the yard in front of the
van, the deputies found nine
more plants growing. The
trail took them across the
yard toward a wooden pigpen.
Thinking the suspect
might be hiding in the pigpen,
the deputies looked in the
structure and noticed, light
coming from under a small


trap door. They opened the
door to look for the fleeing
suspect, but instead found a
small fabricated room, built
underground, in which were
growing numerous mari-
juana plants.
A search warrant was pro-
cured and executed. The war-
rant search yielded a total of
178 plants, fertilizer, and
other contraband at the resi-
dence.

-ometown
Christmas
2006
Miles of aisles and thousands
of shoppers set the scene for the
17th
annual Hometown Christmas, spon-
sored by the DeFuniak Springs
Business and Professional Associa-
tion (DBPA). Held at the Walton
County
Fairgrounds for the third straight
year, the artist and craft fair brought
vendors from all over the South.
Unlike other festivals, Home-
town Christmas always insists on
hand-
made crafts. "You won't find any-
thing that says 'Made in China' at
Hometown Christmas," said DBPA
President Sara Comander. "We want
our
show to feature unique, one-of-a-
kind items that you won't be able to
find at discounts stores or even at
the malls. That's what makes Home-
town Christmas so special."
The craft fair first began as a
way to bring shoppers back to
downtown DeFuniak Springs and,
for years, it was held outdoors along
Baldwin Avenue. It became an in-
stitution for local holiday shoppers

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 30, 2006


630 Baldwin Avenue, free highlight of DFS tour of homes


The one-time home of King
Hardware will shine in holi-
,:,. :-;l1r., with extravagant
', ., live music & refresh-
ments.
Over one-hundred years
old, the newly-renovated of-
Ici'- of Maxamillion Mort-
gage and Park Avenue Real
Estate will be open, for the
I. i ,( i,, to the public dur-
ing the D~ Iuni.ik Springs
H, 1. i.\ Tour of Homes, Sat-
urday, Dec. 2, from 10 a.m..
to 4 p.m. Extravagantly
decorated for the holidays,
the historic location will fea-
ture ii', n 'frsiu:.nt- and
hic- muOu'- by a Sinfonia Gulf
Coast string trio, all hosted
by the sponsors in Civil War
rfgalia.
"We are thrilled by the op-
portunity to showcase the
ir an,\ .Itio ." says Stkvat, .
Scothorn, president of
Maxamillion Mortgag "We
have put a great deal of
thought and care into the
renovation, and we are ex-
cited .i'bout sharing it .ill with
our fini nds and neighbors."
Long a landmark to local
residents, the old King Hard-
ware and Dry Goods Store
was constructed in 1899 at a
cost of $799.
Today, with its large, open
and airy modern workspace
for Maxamillion Mortgage
and Park Avenue Real Es-
tate, the building has a his-
toric value which renovators
have preserved in the origi-
nal heart of pine floors and
the 1899 built-in safe. All of
the desks and conference
tables have been constructed
of one-hundred year old pine
salvaged from adjacent
buildings. Of interest to those
who appreciate Coca Cola
memorabilia is an original
Coca Cola sign, painted on


the brick of what was origi-
nally the outside wall of the
adjacent structure.
The renovators have left
the brick exposed to reveal
the advertisement, "Coca
Cola relieves fatigue," that
runs the length of the build-
ing. A commissioned 8' x 13'
mural of DeFuniak Springs
historic sites highlights an-
other interior wall.
Holiday d6cor includes four
large Christmas trees, sev-
eral oversized wreaths, exte-
rior garland, a full-size Vic-
torian Santa standing guard
over the old King Hardware
safe, a manger scene, exte-
rior lightt d tree, reindeer
and more.
"We are truly looking for-
ward to sharing our new of-
fice home with the commu-
nity," says John Weeks of

Postponed, But Not Cancelled
%. fi: By Dr. Charles Satterwhite
Pastor, Freeport UMC

Some people make a dangerous mistake with God ,be-
cause nothing happens when they disobey Him, and they
think there's not going to be any consequences. Wrong.
Judgment postponed is not judgment cancelled.
Consider our word for today from the Word of God in 1
Tim. 5:24; two kinds of sins.
"The sins of some men are obvious, reaching the place
of judgment ahead of them; the sins of others trail behind
them." Some people get the bill for their sin right away,
and some get it later on; but everyone gets the bill. The
danger is that the person who doesn't pay right away
thinks he's gotten away with it, so he or she keeps on sin-
ning, piling up more consequences more judgment.
Actually, it's probably better to get the'consequences
of your sin immediately, so you wake up and quit accumu-
lating punishment. So often this matter of postponing the
payment for your sin is really a matter of how much money
or position you have. For example, if you live in a poor
urban neighborhood or on an Indian reservation, you can't
afford what it takes to cover up what you did or to get off
the hook. If you live in a more affluent area, you may be
able to cover your sin and think you've gotten away with
it. Wrong again! In fact, your punishment may be worse
because you just keep on doing it.
Your position can also help you postpone paying for
your sin. Powerless people have to face the consequences
of their sin right away; powerful people can use their power
to buy some time. Even Christian leaders have done that
to cover their sin. They have enough influence that no-
body asks'any questions for a while. You may be living in
a deadly spiritual fantasy and right now, thinking, "Well,
no one knows. I haven't been caught. You know, nothing
bad has happened. Well, I might just be getting away with
this." There's no such thing.
God slams every exit when He says in Num. 32:23,
"Be sure your sin will find you out." No one has ever ulti-
mately gotten away with their sin, and neither will you.
The sooner you face your actions, the less the bill will be.
So don't be fooled. Just as in farming, there may be a lag
time between what you sow and what you reap, but the
crop will come up!
Take it from those of us who waited until our father
got home to deal with our disobedience. You can postpone
your judgment, but there is no way you can cancel it.
Come and worship with us at the exciting Freeport
United Methodist Church.

PORTION OF COCA COLA AD on wall being Christmas

In Loving Memory of
James (Jim) Edward McCormick
November 11, 1946 -
November 30, 2004


He touched our lives, he
blessed us all,
he helped all those in need.
He knew his time and
took the call,
and now his soul is free.


It has been two years since the Lord has taken you home,
but our pain of your loss from us it seems like eternity. If
we have learned only one thing through this it's that God
will never leave us nor forsake us. He has been here
through this storm and we will praise Him and lift our
.hands to Him for He is who He is no matter where we
are. He has been here with every tear we have cried and
has held our hands, and has never left our side. Yet our
hearts are torn, He has given us the strength to carry on,
because He is where our help comes from, the Maker of
Heaven and Earth.
A song for you Dad:

Sorry, We never told you, all we wanted to say.
Now it's too late to hold you.
Cause you've flown away, so far away.

Never, Had we imagined, yeah, living
without your smile.
Feelin'and knowing you hear us.
It keeps us alive. Alive!

Darling, I never showed you.
Assumed you'd always be there.
I took your presence for.granted.
But I always cared
And I miss the -love we shared.

Although, the sun will never shine the same,
We'll always look to a brighter day.

Yeah, Lord, we know, when we lay down to sleep,
You'll always listen, as we pray!

And we know you're shining down on us from Heaven.
Like so many friends we've lost along the way.
And we know eventually we'll be together.
One sweet day.

Sorry, We Never told you, all we wanted to say.
We will love forever and ever.
You were a man who never questioned the mission God
sent you on. In your life and your words you shared with
us you fought the good fight, you finished the course and
kept the faith. We know that you, an adored son, beloved
husband, wise father, faithful friend, compassionate pas-
tor have been granted God's medals of Grace. You are
now forever singing praises to His Name, the King of
Kings and the Great I Am.

For our love has a seal upon our hearts and is stronger
than death, it has a fire that waters cannot quench.

We love you and miss you so much, you will be forever
with us, and you left us so many precious memories.

Your loving wife Kathy, son Eric; daughters Carla and
Shelly, grandchildren Christopher, Cara, Megan, Miranda
and Ethan; Son-in-Laws David and Marc, and Daughter-
in-Law Jami.

Hel m ke a teen's dream come true


Northwest Services is look-
ing for caring families to host
high school students (15-18
years old) from various coun-
tries for the 2006-07 second
semester. "There are few op-
portunities in this world
where an individual can take
an active hand in making the
world a better place. This is
such an opportunity," said
Teresa Knapp, representing
North West Services Peace


Program. "It is the time of
year when Americans every-
where are considering open-
ing their hearts and homes to
one of these teens."
N.W. Services asks local
families to consider showing
one of these foreign teens
what America is all about.
Students from Mongolia,
South Korea, Columbia and
several other countries are
anxious to learn what family


will help them launch their
dream of spending a semes-
ter in America.
"There is no such thing as
a typical host family.
Whether you are a single
parent, retired, have small
children, teens, or no chil-
dren at all, anyone can have
a great experience hosting
an exchange student,"
Knapp said.


All the students are
prescreened. They speak En-
glish, have medical insur-
ance, and their own spending
money. All these students re-
quire is a loving family to
share their experience.
Those who are interested
should contact NW-Services
at 866-846-3977. Experience
is not necessary, as an orien-
tation and support will be
provided.

Walton girls down Freeport 40-31


.. .. ..,. .- .


WALTON'S JESSE TUCKER looks for an open team mate
to pass the ball to during their game against Freeport. The
Lady Braves went on to win, 40-31.


By PATRICK CASEY
Senior Jesse Tucker
scored 14 points as the Wal-
ton Braves grabbed a road
win with a 40-31 victory over
the Freeport Bulldogs. Wal-
ton used a 13-8 run in the
fourth quarter to hold off the
Bulldogs and break a two-
game losing streak to Free-
port.
Freeport held a 5-2 lead af-
ter one quarter of play as
both squads had trouble on
offense throughout the con-
test. The Bulldogs played the
game without two players
who helped them in their win
over South Walton on No-
vember 17 as Kaycee Jones
and Curstin Buford were not
available due to illness.
Walton (3-1) rallied for a
16-13 halftime lead as Casey
Perkins scored six points in
the quarter to lead the
Braves rally. Freeport (2-2)
was held without a three-
pointer in the contest and
could manage hitting only
12-of-49 shots from the floor


in the contest. Walton wasn't
much better, but the Braves
had an edge in rebounding
and connected on 17-of-54
shots to pull away in the
fourth quarter.
Danille Frost led Freeport
with eight points.
Game Notes: Freeport won
both games in 2005-06, but
Walton holds a 14-7 series
advantage in games dating
back to the 1994-95 season.
Unofficially, each team com-
mitted 22 turnovers. Both
teams shot well from the free
throw line as Walton hit 5-of-
6 shots while Freeport con-
nected on 7-of-8 from the
charity stripe. The Walton
junior varsity moved to 3-0
with a 52-2 victory. Walton
opens the season with five
straight road games. The
Braves opened the 2004-05
season with five straight
road games and posted a 3-2
record. Walton will play their
first home game on Thursday,
December 30, against district
foe Pensacola Catholic.

winner over Dade Christian.
Tallahassee Lincoln High
came from behind for a sec-

Coker, Amato and Shula get the ax


By CHUCK HINSON
For three college football
coaches, there was not a lot
of celebration over the
Thanksgiving weekend. Mi-
ami head football coach
Larry Coker, North Carolina
State head football coach
Chuck Amato and Alabama
head football coach Mike
Shula, all got pink slips over
the past week.
For Larry Coker, the news
came just one day after the
Hurricanes beat No. 16 Bos-
ton College. On Friday morn-
ing, university president
Donna Shalala and athletic
director Paul Dee made the
decision public.
Coker led the Hurricanes
to three national champion-
ships and boasted a 59-15
record during his six years
at Mtami.
Even Coker admitted that
there needed to be changes at
Miami and the Hurricane
football team. Last Friday
the obvious came true when
he was let go.
Coker may coach one more
game, but if they 4o.become
bowl eligible, Coker will be on
the sideline stated Dee.
No sooner had the coach's
office seat cooled down, when
Miami approached and then
offered the job to Rutgers
head football coach Greg
Schiano. But now it was
Miami's turn to feel the pain.
The head football coach
said he had no plans of leav-
ing Rutgers and the state of
New Jersey to become a Mi-
ami Hurricane. He was
regarded as Miami's top
choice to fill Coker's position
at the present time.
Even after one of Rutgers
biggest career wins over
Syracuse to raise their record
to 10-1, the best record the
school has had on the foot-
ball field in its history, all
questions to Schiano were
about the Miami job.
He is just in the first year
of his seven year contract
with the Scarlet Knights at
an annual salary of $1.1 mil-

lion. He also served at Miami
in 1999 and 2000 as the Hur-
ricanes defensive coordina-
tor. -
Another ACC shakeup this
past weekend was the firing
of North Carolina State head
football coach Chuck Amato.
It was just a day after he
completed his seventh season
with the Wolfpack, Amato
was let go by the university.
His up and down season,
that included seven straight
losses, and a season record of
3-7, Amato finished his ca-
reer at N.C. State with a 49-
37 record and five bowl trips.
Amato had three years re-
maining on his contract with
the university and athletic
director Lee Fowler said the
search would begin
immediately.
The final ax fell on Mlonday-


when Alabama made the an-
nouncement that head coach
Mike Shula recieved his
walking papers. After four
years with the Crimson Tide,
the administration was
ready to make a change and
did so on Monday, only six
months earlier signing a six-
year contract to keep Shula
in Tuscaloosa.
The decision was made by
Alabama after their fourth
straight loss. to intrastate
rival Auburn and boasting a
lack-luster season record of
6-6. The final blow for Shula's
career came after their loss
to Mississippi State earlier
in the month.
Athletic Director Mal
Moore made the announce-
ment on Monday to the press
and said he would search for
a '"proven' winner" to -:t'ake'


Shula's. place on the field.
Defen sive coordinator Jone
Kines will serve as interim
coach for the bowl-eligible
Tide.
Many have said the young
coach had taken on too much
responsibility trying to fill
shoes of Paul "Bear Bryant,
while others say that it is
what the team and the uni-
versity had been lacking
since Bryant's death in the
80's.
Either way, the remaining
coaching staff is in for even
more of a possible shake-up.
No word yet, on a replace-
ment for Shula, despite ru-
mors of Steve Spurrier put-
ting on the crimson colors.
This is the fourth time in
six years that Alabama has
been on the search for a head
football coach.

game. USC is still reeling
over their one loss to Michi-
gan earlier this year, but the
Wolverines' win was very
thin and too early in the sea-
son for polls to begin looking
into title game contenders.
In both the BCS and AP
Top 25, USC jumped ahead
of last week's No. 2 team
Michigan. In the BCS poll,
USC ranked with an average
of .946 and Michigan was at
.922. Despite a close call for
either team, it was USC's
early 14 point lead over the,
Irish and then their domina-
tion on the field for the re-
mainder of the game that led
to the flip-flop of the No. 2
and No. 3 positions.
The only other option for
another turnover in the top
two spots in the BCS poll
would be for Southern Cal to
fall to UCLA. If that occurs
and if Florida holds off Ar-
kansas on Saturday in the
SEC title game in Atlanta,


the Gators could possibly
slide into the BCS title game.
Florida barely slid by
Florida State in a very.unex-
pected matchup between the
rival schools this past week-
end. The Gators and the
Seminoles stuck to their typi-
cal plans, but Florida
outlasted and then in the fi-
nal minutes of the game,
outplayed the Seminoles and
took home the 21-14 victory.
Despite Florida's win and
their 11-1 season, they still
have to wait and see how
things go with the UCLA and
USC game. They also have to
maintain their footing in the
SEC against the Razorbacks.
Michigan fans and team re-
alize they are still a very big
contender for an Ohio State
rematch, but will more than
likely be traveling to Pasa-
dena for the Rose Bowl in-
stead of making their way to
Glendale, AZ for the BCS
Championship Bowl.

Nature center


plans get


planning nod


By DOTTY NIST
Plans for a large biologi-
cal education and research
center/wildlife refuge geared
toward local young people
took a step forward on Nov.
27 with a unanimous favor-
able recommendation by the
Walton County Planning
Commission.
The approval was for con-
ceptual plans, with final'
structural design and other
technical details to be pre-
sented, reviewed and consid-
ered at a later date.
Known as "Biophilia," the
nature center is a project en-
visioned by local conserva-'
tionist M.C. Davis, owner of
the 53,000-acre Nokuse
Plantation conservation area
in central Walton County.
Biophilia refers to people's
innate love for plants and
animals.
The center is to consist of
an 11,000-square-foot educa-
tion and research center plus
a 3;800-square-foot wildlife
refuge center. The 5.87-acre
project site is located east of,


Freeport, about four miles
east of U.S. 331, north of S.R.
20. and across from Weed
Patch Drive.
Representing the. appli-
cant, Jennifer Christensen
explained that environmen-
tal consultants were enlisted
to site the facility so as to
avoid any environmental im-
pact on the undeveloped par-
cel. There are no wetlands on
the development site, she
noted.
Meg Nelson, also a con-
sultant for the project, com-
mented that there has been
productive discussion with
the Walton County School
District regarding their coop-
eration with the nature cen-
ter. A workshop with the
school board on the topic is
planned for early December,
she added.,
With the favorable plan-
ning commission vote, the
Biophilia conceptual plans.
will move forward for final
review by the Walton County
Board of County Commis-
sioners at a future meeting.


CLOSE TO ONE HUNDRED guests attended the second annual environmental forum.


SWTDC holds second annual



environmental forum


By JEFFREY POWELL
The South Walton Tourist
Development Council
(SWTDC) recently held its
second annual environ-
mental forum at the
Sandestin Hilton.

The Nov. 17 forum was
well attended and had
upwards of 30 guest
speakers. Speakers in
attendance included Lois La
Seur of the Walton County
Planning Department,


Sharon Maxwell of South
Walton Turtle Watch and Bill
Lucas of Emerald Coast
Archaeology Society. La Seur
pointed out that there are 4
environmental scientists now
working for Walton County.
, "This forum is a way to let
environmental experts talk
to nature based businesses,"
said (SWTDC) New Product
Development Manager
Tiffany McCaskill. "We want.
to promote nature based
tourism."


Among the guests was
Okaloosa Walton College
Instructor Mathew Cox. "I'm
wonderfully impressed with
the turnout," Cox said.
"Walton County has some
innovative ideas in how to
manage ecological issues and
cultural heritage,."
Local businessman Randy
Harelson moderated Friday's
forum. "Today's forum is an
opportunity to gather top
environmental officials," said
Harelson.


Walton County Com-
misionor Cindy Meadows
opened the afternoon session
of the forum. "If you live in,
this area you should attend
this forum," Meadows said.:
"The SWTDC has done
spectacular work putting this
together, their effort is just
outstanding."

Putting the bite on shark hunting


A LOCAL CONSERVATIONIST'S goal for a nature cen-

people's "biophilia," an intnate love for the plants and ani-

Judge to

settle Gulf

Cemetery

dispute

By JEFFREY POWELL
Testimony concerning a
dispute between several
cemetery plot owners and
Gulf Cemetery Association
President Ed Moreau will
continue on December 5,
according to Judge Howard
LaPorte.
The dispute involves
approximately 2.5 acres of
the cemetery's northernmost
boundary. Developers have
requested the property to
access their 55-acre adjacent
parcel.
In exchange for the 2.5-
acres, developers Crystal
Clear Development Inc, Core
Development Group LLC and
Tal Mar Development LLC
have promised to install
fencing and an irrigation
system for the cemetery.
Jasper I. Dennison, who
owns 12 plots, does not
believe the exchange is good
for the cemetery. "I am very

Tuesday before the 2:30
hearing.
The Gulf Cemetery
property was deeded to the
association in 1915 by the
federal government and is
the only public cemetery in
the Santa Rosa Beach area..
The deed states that if any
portion of the cemetery were
ever sold the property would
revert back the government.
Moreau stated in court


that he has always tried to do
what was right for the
cemetery and feels the access
road would benefit the
association in the future.
Expert witness Joel Glenn,
president and owner of Clary-
Glenn Funeral Homes,
testified against the
agreement. "People should be
looking for more burial space
instead of getting rid of it."
Glenn said.
Testimony will resume on
December 5.


Dr. John W Grandy, a senior
vice-president with The
Humane Society of the
United States (HSUS) and an
expert in wildlife programs to
the area. Davis invited the
media and other concerned
citizens to lunch to listen to
Grandy. Members of the
Destin Fishing Museum and
the Destin mayor were also
invited, but were not in
attendance.
Davis said," I didn't know
how active and how effective
the several hundred local
members of the Humane
Society were until this
tournament came up." Local
members got in touch with
the national organization
who quickly sent letters and
provided assistance to protest
the tournament.
"We have actively been
involved in trying to stop
shark tournaments around
the country," Grandy said. He
said the reality is human
attack sharks in many ways,
such as long line fishing
where hooked lines trail for
many miles and contain
thousands of hooks,
indiscriminately hooking
everything in their path. "The
global situation for sharks
looks bleak," he said.
Grandy explained that
sharks are a .high dollar
commodity in many
commercial arenas. "More
i than 500 million can be
earned annually for the
shark fin market in Asia," he
said. "Right now there are
only 19 species of sharks that
cannot be legally landed, all
the rest can be caught
without limit. Tournaments
are adding death to what is
already an unsustainable
loss," he emphasized.
"The winners of the Destin
tournament killed tiger


PAT RAGAN, left, a director of the protect the seals
campaign with The Humane Society of the United States and
Dr John Grandy, a senior vice-president and wildlife program
specialist, were in Destin last week to present a program on
protecting sharks and in an attempt to prevent the Destin
Fishing Museum from continuing with shark fishing
tournaments.


sharks. The tiger shark has
declined 80 percent in the
last 10 years," he said. Catch
and release isn't the answer
either, he explained because
a large percentage of caught
and released sharks later die
due to trauma or injuries
from the hook. "One shark
caught in the tournament
and released, struggled for
more than five hours before
being boated," Grandy said.
Grandy suggested a far
better idea would be to
celebrate the shark
suggesting the museum could
take the lead in showing
responsible stewardship
about sharks. They could
sponsor a community festival
celebrating sharks, showing
the diversity of shark types
and the rich variety of fish in
the region.
Davis said he would be
happy to provide a funding
source for such a celebration
if the museum would lead the
way. Grandy said HSUS
would participate as well.


"All fishing stocks are
down, so it cannot be true
that there are plenty 6f
sharks. If the prey fish
numbers are down, so is
everything above it., Sharks
.are going extinct right before
our eyes. I realize it's a tough
sell to protect what is viewed
as a predator, but I think the
tougher sell is educating the
public about sharks," he said.
To educate the public the
Humane Society of the U.S.
is preparing a series of public
service announcements
about the role of sharks in the
environment.
"Shark tournaments turn
into a celebration of killing
that is not healthy for a
civilized society," Grandy
concluded.
Since the meeting last
week, the Destin Fishing
Museum directors are
considering the idea of a
shark celebration rather than
a tournament, but all
discussions thus far are
preliminary.

The Sandestin Lions Club
honored another member of
their club during their regu-
larly scheduled meeting No-
vember 20, with a Melvin
Jones Fellowship. This is the
highest honor that can be
bestowed on a Lion from Li-
ons Club International. It
was presented to Immediate
Past Club President Lew
Stanley by Past District Gov-
ernor Nancy Cummins. It
was given to Lion Lew for his
outstanding performance

dent.
Funds for Melvin Jones
Fellows are used by Lions
Clubs International to help
provide food, shelter, and
housing to those that have
had great losses from floods,
tornadoes, hurricanes, earth
quakes, fires, etc. For ex-
ample, more than 300 thou-
sand dollars went into the
Gulf Coast from Katrina and
even here in Florida, 10 thou-
sand was used for helping
those displaced by Katrina
that had fled to this area.


LION PRESIDENT JAMES WOOD presents a framed
Certificate of Appreciation to Mike Burrow.


A legally blind man (20%
sight) was the speaker at the
Sandestin Lions Club, No-
vember 20. Mike Burrow, who
lives in Fort Walton Beach,
and his guide dog, Al, that he
recently obtained from
Southeastern Guide Dogs of
Palmetto, FL, gave thq as-
sembled Lions their program.
"And it was a good one. He
talked about how he came to
need a guide dog, how he
went to the school and
learned to work with his new
partner. He talked about the
puppy program and how
young dogs were farmed out
to be raised until they were
old enough to be trained,"
said Lion President James


Wood.
The. trained dogs are
matched with their new part-
ner as he or she is trained to
provide the needed eyes for
the blind person.
Burrow had been made
aware that the Sandestin Li-
ons Club in South Walton
County makes a good sized
contribution to the school ev-
ery year and that they have
sponsored individuals like
himself that are in need of
such assistance. Lion Presi-
dent Wood was the Lion that
drove over to Fort Walton
Beach to pick up Burrow and
Al and then drove them back
home atthe conclusion of the
luncheon.

-a,


With all the Christ-
mas shopping in full
swing, all the deco-
rating and Christ-
mas cards being
stamped and mailed,
everyone needs a
break. WSBZ has
just the remedy with
Christmas music
performed by Peter
White.

Guitarists Peter White
with special guests trum-
peter Rick Braun and saxo--
phonist Mindi Abair will get
you in the mood with a vari-
ety of Christmas classics and
some new smooth jazz holi-
day tunes. The concert will
take place at the OWC Arts
Center, Dec. 16, beginning at
7:30 p.m.

The concert, once again
sponsored by WSBZ 106.3, is
one of two productions that


the radio station puts on an-
nually. This year's line-up
will once again be part of an
18-city U.S. concert tour.

"Smooth Jazz and Jingle
Bells returns to the Emer-
ald Coast. It will be an
evening of contemporary
smooth jazz mixed with tra-
ditional holiday music.
Peter White, who first
made his mark as a teenager
playing with singer-
songwriter Al Stewart, has
recorded and/or toured with
Basia, Dave Koz, Richard.
Elliott, Boney James, David
Benoit and many others. His
long list of hit albums has


catapulted him to the top of
the smooth jazz music scene.
Joining White on stage will
be Rick Braun, a frequent
guest at the Seabreeze Jazz
Festival that takes place ev-
ery April on the Emerald
Coast. His charismatic style
of trumpet playing has won
him praise internationally
and has caused the new gen-
eration of smooth jazz follow-
ers to embrace him as one of
the top entertainers in the
smooth jazz arena.
The female entertainer of
the evening will be saxo-
phonists Mindi Abair. This
will be her fourth year on
tour with White and her


fourth trip to the Emerald
Coast.
Her style has been an' in-
credible draw for numerous
people and this past sum-
mer she crossed over to more
adult contemporary when
she toured with male vocal-
ists sensation, Josh Groban.
She also has toured with the
Backstreet Boys, Mandy
Moore, Duran Duran and
Jonathan Butler.
All three entertainers are
veterans of smooth jazz mu-
sic and all have had success
as a group and as solo art-
ists.

Proceeds from the cocnert
will benefit WSBZ Radio's
Music In The Schools pro-
gram which offers jazz band
clinics and music scholar-
ships for music students in
Okaloosa and Walton
County. The past concerts
have raised thousands of
dollars for school jazz band
clinics.
Tickets are now on sale
and can be purchased by
calling WSBZ at 267-3279.

"Gone With The Wind"


By CALEB I. COSSON

Designed to take what-
ever the wind might throw
their way, impact-resistant
windows and doors are a
pricey option that will soon
be required in a broader
area of Walton County and
the rest of Florida's pan-
handle.
Walton County Building
Director Billy Bearden said
that wind-borne debris re-
quirements, which mandate
impact-resistant openings,
are scheduled to expand on
March 8.
Walton County's wind-
borne debris zone, which
currently extends one mile
north of the coastline, will
enlarge to include the entire
130-mph wind zone and a
portion of the 120-mph wind
zone that lies within 1,500
feet of the Choctawhatchee
Bay.
"It's going to extend quite
a bit further in some places.
Everything south of the
Choctawhatchee Bay and
the Intracoastal Waterway
will be in that zone, and then
1,500 feet on the north side
of the Choctawhatchee Bay,"
Bearden said.
He said new homes will
have to comply with the re-
quirements, but pre-existing
constructions are not re-
quired to meet the stan-
dards.
However, additions to
pre-existing constructions
must meet the new require-
ments, as well as any remod-
eling that affects the open-
ings. Bearden said some
owners of older homes have
voluntarily installed shut-
ters.
The new requirements,
which affect the area from
Franklin County to, the
western Alabama border,
are still not as strict as in
the rest of the state, where
all areas with basic wind
speeds of 120 mph must
comply with wind-borne de-
bris standards, according to
the Florida Department of
Community Affairs Web
site.
Bearden said the
Panhandle's terrain and lo-
cation in relation to the pen-
insula influenced the more
lenient standards.
Kurtis Gurley, an associ-
ate professor in the Depart-
ment of Civil and Coastal
Engineering at the Univer-
sity of Florida, conducted
research after the 2004 hur-
ricanes. His research on
Charley, Frances, Ivan and
Jeanne showed correlation
between the building codes
and reduced home damage.
"It might be worth noting*


that the state of Florida is
fairly aggressive in their ap-.
proach to improving the way.
we build houses," Gurley
said.
He said that the Florida
Building Commission con-.
tinuously learns from hurri-
canes and is responsible for'
adjusting the building code to
reflect its findings.
Steve Young is a licensed
contractor and owner of
Steve Young Construction:
LLC in Walton County. "The:
Florida Building Code is:
probably one of the tougher
codes around because of the,
wind loads and so much'
coastline," he said.
Young, who has worked in
construction in Florida for 26.
years, said that from his per-'
sonal observations, later con-
struction projects have fared
much better, especially in in-
land areas. He gauged his ob-
servations using Hurricane
Andrew.
"So many of the hurri-.
canes that we've had recently,,
the damage that was done
was pre-Andrew construc-
tion," he said.
Gurley also said that as-
pects of the Florida Building
Code that have been tested,.
such as roofs with newer
shingle products; have fared.
better. than their pre-code
counterparts.
"The whole name of the
game is to only improve the
areas of construction that we
think will have a significant.
impact," Gurley said.
Gurley said that the
Florida Building Code is
meant to be thorough but not
come across as frivolous.
"The key is to only enforce
and create changes that can
be shown to have an impact
on the survivability of homes
during hurricanes," Gurley
said. "It's easy to say 'use
more nails and thicker wood,'
and all that stuff, but if you
don't put the nails in the right
place, and so on, it's very easy
to drive up the cost of a house
without significantly improv-
ing its wind resistance."
He said that the Florida
Building Commission's de-
sign makes this possible.
"Some of the people on
Building Commission are
home builders," he said.
"There are representations
from industry and so on to
help hold the line."
Gurley said the Florida
Building Commission's
equivalent does not exist in
other states. He calls
Florida's policy "progressive."
"Instead ofjust accepting
the damage and rebuiilding,
let's make it so that it doesn't
get damaged next time," he
said.


December 10-11: 7- 8:30 p.m. The Ecumenical Choir of
South Walton invites the public to join them for an evening
of Christmas reflections as they present All On a Starry
