Almanac predicts


record cold by


week's end


By DOTTY NIST
A freeze in the Deep South.
possibly reaching near the
Gulf Coast, is being forecast
for early January by "The Old
Farmer's Almanac."
The almanac is predicting
additional cold weather for
the region in early and late
February.
For late December 2006,
the almanac correctly
forecast milder than normal
weather for the region. For
Jan 1-7, rain was predicted,
followed by record cold, with
temperatures returning to
cool by the second week of
January.
A staple for farmers and
gardeners and published
every year since 1792, "The
Old Farmer's Almanac"
produces long-range weather
forecasts through the use of
a formula created by almanac
founder Robert B. Thomas.
Calculations are partially
based on solar activity and
particularly suhspot cycles.
Climatology, the study of
prevailing weather patterns,
and meteorology of the
atmosphere Are also factored
in. Over the years, the
almanac's formula has been
enhanced through the use of
scientific and technological
innovations. The publication
does not claim to be totally
accurate but states that its
results consistently come
very close to 80 percent in
accuracy.
Some may find this
surprising since forecasts are
made as much as 18 months
in advance.


Walton Coun

Office makir

checks on se
A release from the Walton
County Sheriff's Office
(WCSO) says that WCSO
checks on sex offenders more
than the public might
thinkDue to recent events,
several questions have been
raised as to the tracking of
sexual predators in Walton
County. As of Dec. 21, the
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement (FDLE) Sexual
Offender Database shows
that are 101 sexual offenders
currently registered in Wal-
ton County. Of this 101
listed, six are classified as
sexual predators.
The total number includes
offenders/predators that are
currently incarcerated in the
Walton County jail as well
as those who only have a
temporary address listed in
Walton County. The term
"temporary" is used if they
stay five or more days dur-
ing the year.
As part of the ongoing reg-
istration and tracking pro-
cess, offenders/predators are
required by'Florida law to go
to the local Sheriff's Office in
person every six months to
re-register and re-verify
their information to update
the FDLE database.
Information about each of-
fender/predator, such as all
residences, any vehicles reg-
istered or used regardless of
ownership, employment loca-
tions, enrollment in schools
or colleges, and even places
where they may volunteer, is
maintained within this data-
base.
The release goes on to say
that WCSO "goes above and
beyond the .minimum re-
quirements of the Florida
statutes."
According to the release,
"We perform a monthly check
of all offenders and predators
within our county.
"On a rotational basis,
each deputy will make an un-
announced visit to their
home to verify, in person,
that the offender/predator is
actually living where they re-
ported. This can serve sev-


eral purposes. Every deputy
gets to know who is in their
zone and what they are ca-
pable of. And the offender/
predator knows that the Wal-
ton County Sheriff's Office is
always watching.


The almanac notes that its
, snowfall forecast for 2005-
2006 was accurate for more
Than 99 percent of the United
SStates, with the area south of
Boston down to Baltimore
; and the lee area of the Great
r Lakes, getting above-ndrmal
snowfall, while most other
areas had below-normal
snowfall. The almanac also
correctly predicted a milder-
than-normal winter for 2005-
2006 in the Southwest,
among other "on-the-mark"
forecasts.
Thankfully for the
Sunshine State, the almanac
was also correct in
predicting "only a slight
chance of a tropical storm or
hurricane" for Florida in the
2005 Tropical Season.
Janice Stillman, editor for
Sthe almanac, commented
that dust in the atmosphere
from volcanic eruptions likely
contributed to last year's
relatively quiet hurricane
season, despite very warm
waters in the Atlantic.
2007 predictions include
an early spring and mild
summer in most parts of the
U.S., but, unfortunately,
continuing drought,
contributing to wildfire
problems, particularly in the
*West.
The threat of a major
hurricane is forecast in
September 2007, not for
Florida but for the Northeast.

County D.O.C. takes




the reins at jail


By BRUCE COLLIER
Newly-promoted Major
Danny Glidewell, along with
Walton County Commis-
sioner Kenneth Pridgen and
County Administrator
Ronnie Bell, saw in the new
year in jail.
At midnight on Dec. 31,
Glidewell and the Walton
County Department of Cor-
rections assumed official con-
trol of the Walton County
Jail. Pridgen and Bell turned
out in a show of support. "I
think it meant a lot to the
employees that they were
there," said Glidewell.
Glidewell's new job actu-
ally began Dec. 4, when the
transition period com-
menced. "We've had a smooth
transition and assumed op-
erations without disrup-
tion," he said. He sees the
move to the new jail as the
biggest short term challenge
ahead. This, and the shake-
down cruise of the new
agency running the jail, are
"uncharted waters."
The new jail facility is be-
ing readied, and Glidewell
plans to hold an open house
for the public sometime in
February. "It's a state of the
art facility, and we're looking
forward to showing it off."
The first step in making
the transition to the new jail
will be training the employ-

ees, said Glidewell. He also
intends to bring the facility
into full compliance with
state accreditation stan-
dards, "a long process," he


admits.
Glidewell was full of
praise for the Walton County
Board of Commissioners
(BOCC), saying "they've been


great to work with. We
couldn't have. done this with-
out [BOCC's] support. The
board was far-sighted in
planning it."


Crist sworn in as Florida's 44th governor


A -,. Mia

ON NOVEMBER 3, Charlie Crist enjoyed the support of U.S. Sen. Mel Martinez (right)
and Gov. Jeb Bush (left) during a visit to Mi Viejo San Juan restaurant in east:Orlando.
Bush's endorsement of Crist helped cement the attorney general's campaign.


By BRENDAN
FARRINGTON
Associated Press Writer

(AP) Charlie Crist was
sworn in as Florida's 44th
governor Tuesday and prom-
ised to avoid partisan politics
while working to improve
education, lower property
taxes and solve the state's
insurance crisis.
Crist replaced fellow Re-
publican Jeb Bush, whose
popularity remained steady
through his eight years in of-
fice as part of an American
political dynasty. In a speech
overflowing with optimism,
Crist said the wa yto make
the state better is through
unity.
"Our mission has never


been more clear: Solve prob-
lems, don't politicize them,"
he said in the prepared ver-
sion of his inaugural address.
"Put the common good above
partisan politics. We will
work together to do what is
right. And reject labels red,
blue; liberal, conservative;
Democrat, Republican.
There is only one label that
really matters: Floridian."
He then outlined some
lofty goals for the next four
years.
"This will be Florida's
greatest century. Second best
is no longer acceptable. This
will be the time when we
take our rightful place not
near the top, but at the top.
My friends, with your help,
Florida will stand before the


world as a shining symbol of
all that can be achieved,"
Crist said.
Crist was sworn on the
steps Florida's Old Capitol by,
state Supreme Court Chief
Justice Fred Lewis. Also tak-
ing their oaths of office were
Lt. Gov. Jeff Kottkamp, At-
torney General Bill
McCollum, Chief Financial
Officer Alex Sink and Agri-
culture Commissioner
Charles Bronson.
Crist's parents stood next
to him as he took the oath
and his three sisters were at
the event. U.S. Sen. Mel
Martinez served as master of
ceremonies.
SCrist, 50, has served as at-
torney general the last four
years. He has also been edu-


cation commissioner and a
state: senator. He defeated
Democratic U.S. Rep. Jim
Davis in November to earn
the seat.
Bush returned to Talla-
*hassee from his holiday va-
cation for the ceremony. He
will largely be remembered
for leading the state through
repeated hurricanes and
overhauling the state's edu-
cation system. Bush couldn't,
seek re-election because of
term limits.
Crist paid tribute to Bush
in the address, calling him
the nation's greatest gover-
nor.
"Jeb Bush showed us how
government can pursue au-
dacious goals with vision and
integrity," he said. "After
eight years, our taxes are
lower, one million more
people are earning paychecks
in new jobs, and thousands
more of our students are re-
ceiving a year's worth of
knowledge in a year's worth
of time."
The inaugural ceremonies
included a prayer breakfast
at Florida A&M University,
a parade through downtown
and a festival at the
governor's mansion. But
Crist canceled the traditional
inaugural ball, saying that
he didn't feel right about a
fancy party when so many
people are struggling to pay
soaring homeowners insur-
ance premiums and property
taxes.
"We were going to have a
ball tonight, but we're not. I
hope you don't mind. But we
will celebrate with our ser-
vice," Crist said at the prayer
breakfast.
Crist will face huge tests
almost immediately. The
Legislature begins a special
session Jan. 16 to try to find


a way to make insurance
more affordable and more
available. Homeowners
around the state have seen
triple-digit rate increases
and more people are having
to rely on a state-created in,
surer of last resort for cover:
age.
"Skyrocketing property iin
surance and property ta$
rates are a real threat to out
citizens. The impact is crip!
pling," Crist said. "Some of
.our families are no longer
able to afford their homes,
spending down their retire-
ment to keep a roof over their
head, leveraging their
children's future to keep food
on the table. This cannot
stand."
He also promised to give
teachers' raises and recruit
top educators to Florida.
"We have no higher prior-
ity, no higher calling, than to
make sure our children are
prepared, not only to partici-
pate in but to lead in the
highly competitive global
economy," Crist said. "We
need to make sure they're
ready. It is our highest call-
ing, and our most important
responsibility. We need to
continue on the path ofmak-
ing Florida's education the
gold standard."
Crist also promised to
bring new business to
Florida and said he would
travel to Israel after the ani
nual legislative session in the
first of a series of trade mis-
sions:
"We are poised to be an
economic engine like no
other. And as governor, I'll
make sure we fulfill that po-
tential," Crist said. "I'll work
to ensure Florida is open for
business, that our cit izens do
not just have jobs, but goq~
jobs."

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, JANUARY 4, 2007 .


Florida population to double in 50 years


Last week, 1000 Friends of
Florida released two studies
that define the growth man-
agement challenges facing
Florida, a state whose popu-
lation is projected to double
to 36 million by 2060. The
first study, entitled Florida
2060: A Population Distribu-
tion Scenario for the State of
Florida, projects the amount
ofurbanized land in the State
of Florida will double by 2060,
based on current develop-
ment patterns. A companion
study, entitled A Time for
Leadership: Growth Manage-
ment and Florida 2060, deter-
mined that the governor,
state legislators, and citizens
can change the course of de-
velopment in Florida through
deliberate growth leadership.
"Together, these studies
provide a wake-up call for
every Florida resident, busi-
ness and elected official," said
Charles Pattison, Executive
Director of 1000 Friends of
Florida, the state's leading
growth management advo-
cate. "A tidal wave of growth
is headed our way, and we
need proactive leadership
and long-term, large-scale
planning to ensure we protect
our environment and quality
of life. We understand the
scope of the challenge before
us now is the time for us
plan intelligently for the next
fifty plus years."
"Florida has been one of
the fastest growing states in
the country for seven de-
cades," said Peter S.
Rummell,-chairman and CEO
of the St. Joe Company,
Florida's largest private land-
owner. "These studies con-
firm two things. Over the
next fifty years, we can expect
Florida to continue to be one
of our nation's fastest grow-
ing states. And second, we
have, the opportunity to pre-
pare, to learn from our mis-
takes and to learn from
what we've done right. We
.can enact sensible, sustain-
;able development strategies
that accommodate growth
while protecting the environ-
ment and the things that
make Florida special."
"These studies make clear
that, as growth in the state
accelerates, agricultural land
will continue to be in the path


of development," said Joseph
Duda, President and CEO of
A. Duda and Sons, one of
Florida's leading agribusi-
nesses. "Agriculture is a cor-
nerstone of the Florida
economy, and farmers and
ranchers contribute signifi-
cantly to the stewardship of
the state's land, wildlife and
natural resources. We must
develop a visionary strategy
that maintains agriculture's
stewardship role while pro-
viding incentives for those
who elect to keep their land
in agriculture."
Florida 2060: A Population
Distribution Scenario for the
State of Florida, was pre-
pared by the University of
Florida's GeoPlan Center. It
projects that if current devel-
opment patterns continue,
roughly seven million addi-
tional acres of Florida land
will be converted from rural
to urban uses. This will in-
clude approximately 2.7 mil-
lion acres agricultural lands
and another 2.7 million acres
of native habitat. Addition-
ally, a "sea of urbanization"
will surround much of today's
protected conservation lands
unless alternative develop-
ment patterns are promoted.
According to the study, if
current development pat-
terns continue numerous
counties will "build out" by
2060 or before, and many
other counties will convert
from rural to urban. Among
the study's specific findings:
The central Florida region
will experience "explosive"
growth, with continuous ur-
ban development from Ocala
to Sebring, and St. Peters-
burg to Daytona Beach. The
study projects that the 1-75
and I-4 corridors will be fully
developed by 2060.
Seminole, Orange,
Brevard, Indian River,
Pinellas, Hillsborough, and
Manatee counties are ex-
pected to build out in the pe-
riod from 2020 to 2040. The
study projects population
growth will spill into. the, sur-
rounding counties and virtu-
ally all the natural systems
and wildlife corridors in this
region will be fragmented, if
not replaced, by urban devel-
opment.
Charlotte, Lee and Collier


counties are expected to build
out before 2060, causing an
almost continuous band of
urban development along the
southwest Florida coast. The
study projects that popula-
tion growth will spillover into
adjacent inland counties.
DeSoto, Hendry and
Glades counties are expected
to experience the most dra-
matic transformation over
bhe next fifty years as they go
from largely rural to largely
urban in character. The re-
sult will be an almost con-
tinuous urban strip linking
Ft. Myers to West Palm
Beach.
Southeast Florida will be-
come mostly urbanized, with
the exception of some urban
lands north and south of Lake
Okeechobee.
The study projects that all
vacant land in the Keys will
be consumed by development
by 2060, including lands not
necessarily accessible by au-
tomobile.
Duval County is projected
to be completely built out
sometime after 2040, and by
2060 its population is antici-
pated to spill out into Nassau,
Clay, St. Johns and Baker
counties, forever changing
their rural character.
Only the Panhandle and


Big Bend are projected to re-
tain significant areas of open
space, and this is only if cur-
rent growth and development
patterns continue.
The companion study, en-
titled A Time for Leadership:
Growth Management and
Florida 2060 outlines steps
that need to be taken today
to protect the environment
and quality of life while ac-
commodating growth. The
study calls for a shift to
"growth leadership" in
Florida a proactive approach
to plan for the future that
encourages large-scale, long-
term planning and develop-
ment that is both sustainable
and environmentally friendly.
Prepared by the Center for
Quality Growth and Regional
Development at the Georgia
Institute of Technology, A
Time for Leadership notes
that the governor, state leg-
islators, and citizens can
change the course of develop-
ment in Florida through de-
liberate growth leadership.
Overarching recommenda-
tions include:

version of Rural Lands to
Urban Use. New public policy
should mandate that the con-
version of ruralland to urban
density only be allowed in
return for significant public
benefit, especially the preser-
vation of natural lands, open
space, and agricultural lands.
Create a 100-Year Legacy
Plan. The statewide plan
should identify the lands for
permanent protection from
development and lands that
are appropriate for develop-
ment and redevelopment. All
state funding should be con-
sistent with the Legacy Plan.
Identify Leaders and Gal-
vanize Support. Identify
champions to organize and
advocate for Florida's vision
and plans. Such leadership
must come from a broad cross
section of Floridians who be-
lieve that our future is far too
important to just let it hap-
pen.
"We must define a new
path to the future," said 1000
Friends' Vice President Tim
Jackson, a leader in produc-
ing the studies. "We must all
work together to find a way
to accommodate growth while
keeping Florida the special
place it has been. We all have
a stake in protecting our


quality of life. We owe it to
our children and future gen-
erations of Floridians."
"An alarm bell has been
sounded," said Vicki
Tschinkel, Florida Director of
The Nature Conservancy.
"But that alarm should be a
call for realistic large-scale
planning, rather than plati-
tudes about slowing growth.
The future has not yet been
written. We can still choose
the kind of place Florida will
be in fifty years. But we are
going to have to work to-
gether to make it the special
place we all wantit to be."
Funding for Florida 2060
and A Time for Leadership
was provided through gener-
ous donations by The St. Joe
Company, The Nature Con-
servancy, A. Duda and Sons,
Glatting Jackson, Robert
Parks, Fishkind Associates,
and WilsonMiller.
Established in 1986, 1000
Friends of Florida works to
protect natural areas, fight
urban sprawl, promote sen-

ing. Above all, it strives to

Editor's comment



The death of civility


By RONKELLEY
I was driving through a lo-
cal fast food restaurant re-
cently. Like most fast food
restaurants, this one was
staffed by little children.
These children apparently
did not think I should be able
to have it my way or think
that I deserved a break today
or that I should eat fresh or
think outside the bun and
they certainly didn't care if I
thought the food was finger-
lickin' good. In fact, I'm not
sure they thought about me
at all. One mumbled some-
thing unintelligible to me
without making eye contact
and the other didn't speak at
all.
they did take my money.
They. also managed to get
nearly half of my order cor-
rect, which pretty much made
it a red-letter day in the fast
food industry.
What.I did not get was a
single friendly face, a smile or
anything resembling a wel-
coming attitude.
Although it's easy to pick
on fast food restaurants, it's
not just limited to those busi-
nesses or the children who op-
erate them. There is a local
family-owned grill in DeFu-
niak Springs that routinely
uses high school-aged kids
with great success. With rare
exceptions, the staff is always
friendly, helpful and mindful
of their dependence on our


satisfaction.
Retail store clerks can
also turn a simple shopping
errand into a blood-boiling
nightmare. My biggest com-
plaint with floor clerks is
that they are usually as
clueless about what they
carry and where it might be
found as I am.
The check-out people are
the worst. They are either
painfully slow or sullen, or
else they ignore me in favor
of carrying on a conversation
with their buddies, who are
standing a few paces behind
them in someone else's way.
On a bad day, they are all of
these things.
My first impulse is to
blame the business owner or
manager. After all, they
should know that if custom-
ers leave their store un-
happy, they may not return.
If they are forced to return,
as people who live in small
towns often are, they'll find
that the purchases will be
small and irregular. People
will either wait until their
next out-of-town excursion
or, if they are really dis-
gruntled, they'll make a spe-
cial trip, go out of their way
and happily pay more just
so long as they don't have to
shop at the offending store.
It's cheaper to train staff
to be courteous, helpful and
unfailingly pleasant. A busi-
ness is only as good as its em-


ployees and it is only as suc-
cessful as its employees al-
low it to be.
As I said, my first impulse
is to blame the store owner.
However, sometimes it's the
person at the top who is the
worst offender.
I recently received a let-
ter to the editor regarding an
area business. According to
the anonymous writer, the
store owner was curt and un-
friendly over the phone.
Later, when the fellow pro-
ceeded to the store anyway,
the owner was even more
rude and obnoxious.
Knowing this business-
man personally, I could have
told the writer that he must
have caught the guy on a
good day- he's usually not
that friendly.
So what happened to us?
When did we turn away from
the habits and manners of a
more civilized society?
I was taught that one
must always address one's
elders with a "Yes, sir" or
"Yes, ma'am" even if you're
not from the South. Even to-
day, I address ladies I know
fairly well, but that are of a
certain age, with an honorific
- "Yes, Miss Mary" or "How
are you, Miss Anna?" Aged
gentlemen will get a "Yes,
Mister John" or "No, Mr.
Frank."
It's best to start by offer-
ing the respect and courtesy


that I think I am also due.
Such things cost noth-
.ing, but leave a .pleasant
taste in the minds of the
people we encounter; a
lasting impression of good
manners that serve us well
throughout our entire
lives.
Thanking someone for a
small courtesy or holding
a door for someone, giving
up your seat to a lady, let-
ting someone with only a
few items in line ahead of
you, deciding not .to cut
someone off in traffic -
these are all little things
that can mean a lot to
people, especially when
they are not expecting it.
Believe me, in a world
that thinks "Yo! Whassup?"
is a' proper greeting -
people will not be expect-
ing common courtesy or
good manners.
This year, let us make
an effort to remind visitors
and transplanted resi-
dents to our fair land that
there is a reason why we
are known for our "South-
ern hospitality." Let us to
remember to say 'thank-
you' and'please' and all the
other little things that
make us truly unique.
As Clarence Thomas
said, "Good manners will
open doors that the best
education will not."

Dear Editor,
The Walton County Council on Aging would like to thank
the seniors, the local businesses that donated door prizes, and
the volunteers who helped make the 2006 Annual Christmas
Banquet a success. The Council on Aging had over 100 people
at the civic center who enjoyed a good meal and a good time.
We would also like to thank the community and all the sites
that helped with our first "Senior Tree of Hope." With their
support we were able to do 15 baskets to give out to seniors in
our area.
Thanks again for all your support for our seniors in 2006.
SKay Brady, Director
Walton County Council on Aging

SECS and COA partner


" to increase volunteerism


PICTURED FROM L TO R: Julie Prevatt, RSVP direc-
tor; Jean Harvey, Walton County volunteer coordinator; Kay
Brady, Walton County Council on Aging director.


Elder Care Services and
the Walton County Council
on Aging are teaming to in-
crease volunteer service in
Walton County. Jean Harvey
recently accepted the posi-
tion of Volunteer Coordinator
to help recruit, train, and co-
ordinate volunteers for the
Council on Aging and Walton
County at large.
The volunteer coordi-
nator's position is grant


funded by the Corporation
for National Service through
its Retired & Senior Volun-
teer Program and office space
is being made available by
the Walton County Council
on Aging.
RSVP is not new to Walton
County and has been work-
ing to increase volunteerism
for over 20 years. However,
limited funding prevented
placement of a local volun-


teer coordinator on a regular
basis. Now volunteers and
agencies will have a local con-
tact that will work directly
with them, providing indi-
vidual attention and coordi-
nation. RSVP is part of the
National Senior Service Corp
and federally funded by the
Corporation for National Ser-
vice.
Locally, RSVP is sponsored
by Elder Care Services, a


United Way Agency, and co-
ordinates volunteers in 14
Northwest Florida Counties.
Elder Care Services also
sponsors the local Foster
Grandparent and Senior
Companion Programs.
If anyone is interested in
volunteering or are an
agency in need of volunteers,
contact Jean at the Walton
County Council on Aging at
850 892-8165,

Put away holiday


decorations now


Now that the holidays are
over, take down holiday deco-
rations and start the New
Year safely, advises the Na-
tional Fire Protection Asso-
ciation (NFPA) and Under-
writers Laboratories Inc.
(UL), the not-for-profit prod-
uct safety testing organiza-
tion.
According to the NFPA, 20
percent of home fires attrib-
uted to Christmas trees occur
in January. "Christmas trees
can be a significant fuel
source if a fire occurs in your
home," said Lorraine Carli,
NFPA assistant vice presi-
dent of communications.
"Dried-out trees burn easily
and should not be left in a
garage or placed against the
house. We recommend you
remove your tree from the
home and dispose of it prop-
erly as soon as your Christ-
mas celebration ends."
"Even well-watered trees
dry out after four weeks,"
John Drengenberg, consumer
affairs manager for UL, ex-
plained. "So if your real tree
went up right after Thanks-
giving, it should be discarded
after Christmas and not New.
Year's Day."
Carli and Drengenberg
also note that Christmas
trees aren't the only holiday
decorations that need prompt
attention after the holidays.
"Leaving your decorations
out for several months or
even all year not only aggra-
vates your neighbors," Carli
said, "but it also leaves the
wires exposed to rain, snow,
cold, the sun, squirrels and
birds longer than intended by
the safety standards."
"Many people don't realize
that holiday lights should
only be up for a limited time,"
Drengenberg continued, "The
safety standards are devel-
oped anticipating a maxi-
mum of 90 days of use per
year because these decora-
tions are considered seasonal.
If you leave decorations out
any longer, the resulting
damage could cause an elec-
trical shock or a fire hazard."
When unplugging and
storing lights whether in-
doors or outdoors remember
the safety precautions taken
now can prevent hazards
from occurring next season.
When using electrical toys
or appliances for the first
time, carefully read and fol-
low all instructions in the
manufacturer's use and care
booklet. Make sure electrical
toys and appliances have the
UL Mark.


Use the gripping area pro-
vided on the plugs to unplug
electric decorations. Don't
pull plugs from electrical out-
lets by the cord. Yanking or
tugging on the cordcan dam- i
age the cord's wire and insu-
lation and could lead to an
electrical shock or fire.

When putting away electri-
cal light strings, take time to
inspect for flaws. Check each
light set for broken or cracked
sockets, frayed or bare wires
and loose connections.
Dispose of worn or broken
light sets and replace them.
Do not place a faulty set of
lights back into the storage
box for nextyear's use. Store
electrical decorations away
from children and pets to en-
sure that cords and wires are
not damaged in storage.
Store electrical decorations
in a dry place where they can
not be damaged by water or
dampness.
To keep from having a
tangled mess of lights next
year, be sure to pack them ap-
propriately. When preparing
holiday lights for storage, con-
sider purchasing a holiday
light storage reel, or create a
home storage system. For ex-
ample, wrap the lights around
an empty wrapping paper tube
or a cardboard square, or wrap
each set of lights and put them
in individual plastic bags.

Invited back from his
popular Okaloosa-Walton
College performances in I! 12
and 1997, Emmy and 1'.n:.

Anniversary of The Arts Cen-
ter at OWC in true style on
.iiil,:,.l., Feb. 3.

mance are now available

Call (850) 729-6000 or toll
free 1-888-838-ARTS (2787)
or visit The Arts Center
website at owc.edu/arts.
Ben Vereen will razzle-
dazzle with the best of song
and dance that made him a
Broadway legend. From fame
in Broadway's Chicago to
television's Roots and hit
musicals such as Jelly's Last


Jam, A Christmas Carol
and Wicked, Vereen has
proven himself to be one of
the world's most talented and
versatile performers.
Combining his love for per-
forming and the stage,
Vereen's unique one-man
show showcases his versatil-
ity and creativity and has
been performed throughout
the US, Europe, Asia and the
Caribbean. This ever-chang-
ing cabaret-style show has
won him "Entertainer of the
Year," "Rising Star," and
"Song and Dance Star" from
the American Guild of Vari-
ety Artists (AGVA).
From appearances on
Broadway in Sweet Charity,
Hair, Jesus Christ Superstar,
Pippin, Grind, Jelly's Last
Jam, Christmas Carol, Chi-
cago, Fosse and the critically
acclaimed, I'm Not Rapp-
aport, Vereen channels his
high-intensity performances
into .unforgettable experi-
ences for audiences.
His role in Pippin gar-
nered him both the presti-


gious TonyAward and Drama
Desk Award for "Best Actor
in a Musical". Clive Barnes
of the New York Post states
"Ben Vereen unquestion-
ably one of the finest perfor-
mances seen on Broadway."
While continually perform-
ing worldwide, Vereen's tele-
vision credits have given us
memorable roles that will for-
ever be etched in our minds.
He appeared as the unforget-
table Chicken George in
Roots and as Louis
Armstrong in Louis
Armstrong Chicago Style;
as well as many made-for-
television movies, mini-se-
ries and specials: The Jesse
Owens Story, Ellis Island
(for which he received a
Golden Globe nomination)
and more.
Vereen's film appearances
include All That Jazz, Funny
Lady (for which he received
a Golden Globe nomination)
and more. In 2004, Vereen
was nominated for a "Career
Achievement Award" by the
Le Prix International Film


Star Awards Organization.
The lecture circuit has be-
come an integral part of
Vereen's career; as he has
become one of the nation's
most requested speakers
among audiences of all ages.
His strong sense of social
consciousness and spiritual
being has enabled him to
reach out to his audiences
and convey to them a deep
feeling of understanding and
oneness. His topics range
from overcoming adversity,
arts in education, black his-
tory, motivation and the im-
portance of continuing edu-
cation to name a few.

The Arts Center at OWC
is northwest Florida's pre-
mier arts complex and is eas-
ily accessible from Interstate
10 and Hwys. 85 and 285 on
the Niceville, Florida campus
of Okaloosa-Walton College,
at 100 College Blvd.
For a season brochure or
driving directions, contact

The Poet of Tolstoy Park is
an unforgettable novel based
on the true story of Henry
Stuart's life, which was re-
claimed from his Idaho
doctor's belief that he would
not live another year. After


Stuart moves to Fairhope,
AL., where the story unfolds,
he learns lessons in dying
and advances to lessons in
living a vigorous new life.


Brewer writes a moving
and irresistible story. One
reviewer calls it "a guidebook
of the mind and spirit that
lays hold of the heart. Henry
Stuart points the way
through life's puzzles for all
of us, becoming in the time-
less tale a character of such


dimension that he seems
more alive now than ever,"
Brewer's latest book is A
Sound Like Thunder.

LE(ir;IVEIDAY KSE1IES, A-1B and A-
R&D hangar at Air Force Museum.


By BRUCE COLLIER
This is the final installment of a
REE three-year project covering the Na-
RE F tional Museum of the United States
Air Force, located in Dayton, Ohio.
Tm 9 The museum and its contents cover
T S17 acres and four buildings. There's
also a memorial park and an outdoor
exhibit, including a facsimile of an
airfield in World War II Britain.
A guided "maze" pathway though
the buildings traces the history of
aviation, particularly military avia-
tion, from the beginnings to the
;.. present day. Also included are exhib-
its on prisoners of war, the Holocaust,
and the contributions of entertainer
S Bob Hope to the American military.
Aviation artwork and interactive ex-
i hibits are also scattered throughout
i: the museum.
F | The focus of this year's trip was the
Presidential and Research & Devel-
opment Galleries. These exhibits are
located on Wright-Patterson Air Force
Base, and cannot be accessed except
S by bus. Reservations must be made
historic in person at the tour's desk in the mu-
seum.
The exhibit is very popular, and
Tours are usually fully booked by late
morning. The last tour of the day is
at 4 p.m., and the museum itself
Closes at 5 p.m. The tour takes ap-
proximately 90 minutes. Like the
museum itself, the tour is free of
charge.-
The tour begins with a brief orien-
tation in an auditorium located in the
museum. Visitors board a bus and are
driven a short distance to the exhibit
hangars on base.
j, The two exhibits are in separate
S ij hangars, with tour guides on hand to
answer questions and point out items
of interest..
Dominating the Presidential ex-
hibit are four large aircraft, used by
Presidents Franklin Roosevelt, Harry
Truman, Dwight Eisenhower, John F.
Ken edY, Lyndon B. Johnson, Rich-
ard Nixon, Gerald Ford, and Jimmy
Carter.
Fra n klin Roosevelt was reportedly
the first U1.S. president to fly while
in office. The Douglas aircraft com-
pany custom-made a plane for FDR,
the \VC54C, nicknamed the "Sacred
Cow." The plane flew the president
to Yalta for the historic 1945 confer-
ence with Winston Churchill and
Josef Stalin. Unlike most.airplanes
of this kind, the Sacred Cow boasted
a number of modifications, including
a conference room with a large desk,
-a bullet proof window, and an eleva-
tpr in the tail to lift FDR and his
of the wheelchair aboard.


Walking through the airplane takes concentration, and larger peri
sons are advised that the walking space in this and some other plane..4
is only about 17 inches wide. The seats and other interior fittings aR.
behind glass for preservation.
Next in line of succession is the Independence, a Douglas VC 118.
that transported Harry Truman, among other places, to Wake Island
for a Korean War conference with General Douglas MacArthur in
1950. The aircraft, so-named in honor of Truman's Missouri home-;
town, is painted in a unique blue and white eagle-face design. Modi-'
fications include a stateroom.
The Lockheed VC 121E "Columbine III" served President.Dwight
Eisenhower until he left office in 1961. Mrs. Eisenhower.is said to :
have named the plane for the state flower of Colorado, her adopted
state. The one-of-a-kind aircraft is furnished in classic 1950s style,
with "retro" appliances and conveniences. Both Eisenhower and FDR.
were heavy smokers, and their planes are well-equipped with now-
forbidden ashtrays.
Possibly the most historically rich of all the planes is the Boeing
VC 137C SAM 26000, the first to be, called "Air Force One." SAM
stands for "special air missions," and the 144-foot plane was in ser-
vice for more than three-and-a-half decades, carrying presidents, leg-
islators, kings, queens, and heads of state from all over the world.
The 26000 was first used by President John F. Kennedy to travel
to New York for Eleanor Roosevelt's funeral. While in JFK's service,
the plane reportedly broke some 30 speed records, including the fast-
est nonstop flight between the United States and the Soviet Union.
The plane also flew Kennedy to Dallas in November of 1963. and
flew his casket back to Washington. President Johnson was sworn in
on the 26000, which paid a final tribute to JFK by flying over Arling-
ton cemetery and dipping its \wings in salute at his burial.

The 26000 went on to fly LBJ back and ilrth to Vietnam. Johnsonian modifications including having the passenger
seats reversed to face rearward. taid the president's compartment, and installing a desk that he could raise or,
lower at the press of a button.
Richard Nixon had the plane o\ erhauled Interestingly, he removed a taping system that recorded incoming and
outgoing telephone calls. Nixon flew the 26000 on his historic first trip to China in 1972, and christened the plane
"The Spirit of'76" in honor of the upcoming bicentennial. The 26000 was retired to backup status, and was used by
Pre-idents Ford and Carter, before retiring p)ermainrently in 1990.
The presidential exhibit also includes smaller craft used for shorter trips or by former presidents.
The other hangar on the tour houses some of the strangest birds.in the whole museum. The Research & Developg
ment section rncludets experimental planes. planes developed to solve specific aviation problems, and aircraft asso'-
ciated with the space program.

Pugh


Danny Martin Pugh, 68, of
DeFuniak Springs, passed
away at his home Tuesday,
December 26, 2006. He was
born September 25, 1938 in
Lexington, Tennessee, the
son of Thomas Eades Pugh
and Betty Inez Hatchet
Pugh.
Danny served twenty years
in the U.S. Air Force, travel-
ing all over the world to serve
his country. After retiring in
1983, he farmed and raised
"Cooking Good Chickens."
Because farming didn't fill
Dan's time, he returned to
college at University of West
Florida and received a
master's degree, after which
he taught history at Walton
High School in the late
1980's.
In 1991, Dan founded "Po
Boy's Pawn Shop" in DeFu-.
niak Springs. The store name
was later changed to "Po Boys
Guns and Ammo" and he
built the store into what
many refer to as the largest
gun shop in the Southeast.
After visiting the shop to
browse or make a purchase,
one was sure to leave with a
funny story and a fond

Preplanning is a simple thing you can do
to ease burdens on your family at a difficult time.
No other form of preparation does all of these things:
Makes decisions ahead of time
Ensures wishes are carried out
Prevents overspending
Takes the pressure of selection
process off your family
Keeps costs at today's prices when
paid in advance

Forgiveness

By Dr. Charles
Satterwhite
Pastor, Freeport UMC


As a pastor, I have noticed that one thing we humans
have in common is the need to forgive and to be forgiven.
Churches are filled with people who have held grudges
for literally years, and. simply will not let go. I can tell
you this, God cannot give peace until we learn to forgive.
When you and I reach the place in our walk with God
where the person that has wronged us does not bother
us when we see him or her, we have forgiven like Jesus
forgave us. Jesus held no grudges. He could walk in the
midst of his most fierce religious enemy (religious en-
emies are the most fierce) and do the will of God without
them distracting Him. That my dear friend is focused.
Jesus came to do the will of His Father, and He knew
that if He failed we were lost without any hope of re-
demption.
Jesus never ran from His feelings as a human being.
Even in the Garden of Gethsemene He confronted His
feelings and remained focused; so must we. Running from
one church to another will not resolve the sin of
unforgiveness. Many churches are begun on the backs
of disgruntled church members who left their church with
unresolved issues. The fact is, we cannot run away from
sin. Our sin will always find us out. The only time in the
Luke/Acts account of persons leaving the church was
when, the leaders laid hands upon them and sent them
forth with their blessings. No wonder the church grew
with such vigor. Do you have unforgiveness in your heart.
God can never bless sin.
We begin each Sunday with Sunday School 9 a.m.;
Worship 10 a.m. We are proud sponsors of Angel Food
Ministries.

PDL Girls fall in


Freeport Tourney finale


By PATRICK CASEY
The Ponce de Leon girls
basketball team fell a little
short in their attempt to cap-
ture the girls side of the Free-
port Basketball Blowout as
the Jackson County Blue
Devils hit pine three-point
shots for a 50-42 victory in
the championship game of
the three-day tournament.
Courtney Dyer and Amy
Anderson scored 15 points
apiece to pace the squad from
SGainesboro, Tennessee, a
community on the
Cumberland River in north-
central Tennessee between
Nashville and Knoxville.
PDL (12-4) got 14 points
from Lacey Griffin and 13
from Mary Howes in the los-
ing effort. The Pirates cause
was not helped when Allex
McCormick tweaked her
ankle in warmups before the
game and was unable to play
significant minutes. The Pi-


rates starting forward, who is
the team's third leading
scorer, averages ten points a
game, but did not score in the
contest in very limited play-
ing time.
Hazard High School from
.Kentucky defeated St. Paul's
Episcopal from Alabama in
the third place game earlier
in the afternoon.
PDL got to the champion-
ship game by winning games
over Buckhorn High School
from Kentucky 69-22 and
Spanish Fort High School
fromAlabama 69-37. In those
two contests, the Pirates shot
the ball as well as they had
all season and got significant
playing time from the bench
in the runaway victories.
Freeport and South Wal-
ton took part in the eight-
team, event, but did not cel-
ebrate the holiday tourna-
ment with any victories.
South Walton, reeling from


an ACL tear m the knee o
ts acting forward Tara


Watson, had shooting and
ball-handling issues as Haz-
ard dropped the Seahawks in
the opening round 55-42. St.
Paul's finished off South Wal-
ton in the consolation bracket
as they defeated the
Seahawks 52-30 to send
South Walton home with a 7-
9 overall record heading into
the second half of the season.
Julie Williamson had 13
points to lead the way against
Hazard while Taylor Griffith
had 14 points against St.
Paul's, despite an off-shooting
night at Freeport Middle
School.
Freeport struggled in their
own tournament as poor
shooting doomed the Bull-
dogs in the opener. Spanish
'Fort pulled out a 53-48 win
in the opening round as they

Seminoles demolish Bruins,


end with winning season


By CHUCK HINSON
It took all season and then
some before the Seminoles
realized what ivas at stake
and what needed to be done
to reclaim their old glory
days. On Dec. 27, FSU ral-
lied and then exploded on the
field and took the UCLA Bru-
ins by surprise with a 44-27
victory in the Emerald Bowl.
A far cry then what bowls
the Seminoles are accus-
tomed to, but one that at
least proved that the garnet
and gold colors should be
seen in post-season games.
Things looked like a nor-
mal game for the Seminoles
this past season when within
the first three minutes of the
game, the defense was on the
field 'nearly two minutes of
the time frame due to a Drew
Weatherford interception. It
seemed like UCLA was still
riding high from beating No.
2 USC a few weeks ago, and
they were not ready to slow


the momentum.
But the tables turned and
the old days of Florida State
football returned to the field
with a few trick plays, a
double pass and an impres-
sive fourth quarter, where
the Seminoles threw' 21
points on the.board.
The Noles came alive after
a 30-yard touchdown by
Greg Carr on a fourth -and-
9 that shocked everyone on
the field, in the stands and
even on the sidelines. South-
ern California native
Lorenzo Booker, who ran for
91 yards, caught five passes
for more than 120 yards aind
scored twice for the Semi-
noles, and capped off the
game with a 3-yard TD with
a little more than six min-
utes remaining to play.
Tony Carter also had an
86-yard interception that
put another six point on the
board.
Despite a slow, shaky start


for the Seminoles, quarter-
back Drew Weatherford
found his comfort zone and
began connecting with
recievers. He passed for 325
yards.
With the Emerald Bowl vic-
tory, Florida State clinched
its Hall of Fame 20th bowl
victory at the close of what
has been called one of the
worst Seminole seasons..
After having a dismal 6-6
season, FSU and Bobby
Bowden both needed this
game to be in the winner's
bracket. The victory gave the
team and head coach their
30th bowl win under Bowden.
Even with the win, it was
the worst season for the
Seminoles since 1986. FSU
ended the season with a 7-6
record, but faculty and
alumni are positive about
next season as the nation
awaits the announcement of
the new offensive coordinator.

PONCE DE LEON'S MARYHOWES tips the ball from the hands of a Spanish Fort, AL

Larry Coker finishes


with winning season


By CHUCK HINSON
Fans lined the path back
to the Miami bus in Boise,
Idaho, to shake the hand of
Larry Coker who played his
last game with the Miami
HUrricanes and finished the
season with a 21-20 victory
over Nevada this.past Sun-
day night.
He assured the fans that
Miami still had a great pro-
gram and their would be
much more for the Florida
team in the future. Coker
was fired on November 24


after suffering a 6-6 season,
but agreed to stay on and
coach the bowl game before
handing over the reigns to
defensive coordinator Randy
Shannon.

The win at the MPC Bowl
gave Coker and the Hurri-
canes a winning season at 7-
6.
Throughout the game,
Kirby Freeman shined on
the field and threw for 272
yards and two touchdowns,
and ran for one score.


, The Canes came alive in
the second half of the game
with their defense that shut
down possible advances by 8-
5 Nevada. It was the defense
and an interception by
Chavez Grant in the last
minute of the game, stopped
ia Nevada run that ended on
(the 36-yard line and gave Mi-
iami the trophy.

The win gave Coker his
0Oth with the Hurricanes
and anoverall record of 60-
15.

Bama suffers another blow


By CHUCK HINSON
It seems that the boys from
Tuscaloosa just can't get a
break. From the changing of
head coaches a few times in
the past five years, to getting
their latest and closest loss
of the season last Thursday
night in the Independance
Bowl, Alabama has seen bet-
ter days.
It came down to the fourth
quarter and 8.9 seconds left
on the board when Oklahoma
State's Jason Ricks, who has
not been consistent with his
kicking all season, popped a


27-yard field goal and gave
the Cowboys a 34-31 victory
over the Tide.
The winning kick gave the
Cowboys a winning season
with a 7-6 record and gave
them their first bowl victory
since 2002.

Alabama stormed back in
the fourth quarter when they
stole theOklahoma State 14-
point lead, setting up the
Crimson Tide for the tying
touchdown with a fumbled
kick-offreturn. The final sec-
.onds played in OSU's favor


,and so did the final field goal
that sealed the victory.
Alabama (6-7) was playing
in its NCAA-record 54th bowl
game and were trying to get
their 31st bowl victory. The
Tide played like they knew
everyone was talking about
. their dismal season and the
firing off head coach Mike
Shula, just weeks before the
bdwl game.
With the loss, Alabama had
its first losing season since
2003, which was Shula's first
season with the Tide.

Beach



restoration



90+ percent



complete


By DOTTY NIST
Despite a two-day rough
sea delay last weekend and
one day off last week for re-
fueling the project dredge,
the end is in sight for comple-
tion of the western Walton
County large-scale beach res-
toration project.

"We estimate we are
within three weeks of
completion," reported South
Walton Tourist Development
Council (TDC) spokesperson
Tracy Louthain on Jan. 2.
New Year's found 22,700
feet of the five-mile western
Walton County project area
in place, amounting to 90.1
percent. The restored area
amounts to 60.2 percent of
the total project, which is to
include two miles in the
Destin area.
Work in Destip likely will
not begin until April, since
the dredge is scheduled to
move to a project in Indian
River County for several
months upon the completion
of the Walton County project
area or soon afterward.
TDC Beach Management
Director Brad Pickel said
that input on the results of
the project has been excellent
and that he has been im-
pressed with the way the res-


toration sand has held up
when impacted by recent
small winter storms.
There are no plans to
pump sand onto the 500-foot-
long area near Sandtrap
Road where a small number
of homeowners opposed to
the project had denied accAss
for construction, according to
Pickel.
He said that natural
forces have brought restora-
tion sand on both sides of the
500-foot area into that por-
tion, filling it in so that it is
"roughly equivalent" to the
surrounding restored area.
Measurements taken found
the 500 feet of beach identi-
cal to the surrounding
beachfront in width and also
for the most part in height,
he commented.

The dredge is scheduled to
be at work midweek near the
Walton-Okaloosa County
line, with construction mov-
ing eastward to tie in to the
previously restored area near
the Avalon subdivision.
Continually updated in-
formation on the project may
be accessed at www.protect
waltoncountybeaches.com.

tion is also available by
phone at 866-4my-beach.

"The game's afoot, Watson!'


It is time for the annual
celebration of Sherlock
Holmes' birthday with a
meeting of local
Sherlockians on January
16, 2007. This is the third
meeting of the Beach
Hound Chapter. The local
chapter was established in
January 2004 at the Santa
Rosa Golf & Beach Club in
Walton County, their
designated home.

The chapter chose the


name Beach Hounds as
their moniker, and is
officially listed in the
SInternational Registry of
"The Baker Street Irregu-
lars" (BSI), along with
approximately 844 other
Sherlockian chapters
around the world.
The most famous
v Sherlock Holmes society of
the Baker Street Irregulars,
founded 1934, in New York,
is the centerpiece of an
annual "birthday weekend"
that brings hundreds of
Sherlockians to New York.
The BSI has approximately
197 "scion societies".across
stern end the United States and
kindred societies in 22
other countries. Some of


these countries include
Europe, Israel, Iraq,
Kyrgyzstan, Australia, and
New Zealand.
Sir Arthur Ignatius
Conan Doyle, the author of
Sherlock Holmes adven-
tures, was born in
Edinburgh, Scotland on
May 22, 1859. He is the
second most published
author in the world, the
first being mystery writer
Agatha Christy.
Doyle was a graduate of
the University of
Edinburgh with a Bachelor
of Medicine and Master of
Surgery degree. He wrote
his first published short
mystery story while attend-
ing medical school. His
second significant work was
writing a noel while
initially building his
medical practice. Holmes is
based on one of Doyles
Instructors, Dr. Bell.
It was originally titled
"Tangled Skein", with two
sleuths, Sheridan Hope and
Ormond Sacker as lead
characters. After it was
completed, he changed it to
"A Study in Scarlet" and
the featured characters
were changed to Sherlock


Holmes and Dr. Watson.
Doyle subsequently gave up
his medical career with the
success of Sherlock Holmes
and devoted his life to
writing. His works include
55 short stories and four
novels. He passed away at
age 71 on July, 7, 1930.
Sherlock Holmes was by
all researched accounts
"born" on January 6, 1854
and, for more than a
century, his name has been
known in every country of
the world; and not only his
name, but his appearance
too. The hawk-like features
and piercing eyes; the
dressing-gown and pipe; the
deerstalker cap and magni-
fying glass these details
are so familiar that if he
were to appear amongst us
today, we should know him'
at once. :
He is still however an
enigmatic figure, as
wrapped in mystery as the
crimes he tried to solve and,
as in most legends, it is
often difficult to separate
fact from fiction
Dr, Watson in Doyle's
writings is featured as a
wise and educated charac-
ter, not only useful in


assisting Holmes in solving
crime, but also his biogra-
pher. He was never por-
trayed by Doyle as the
bumbling buffoon. His
character was changed by
and for Hollywood films.
The local Beach Hounds
extend an open invitation to
people interested in attend-i
ing the annual birthday
celebration of Sherlock
Holmes. The group will
gather at the Santa Rosa
Beach Golf & Beach Club,
4801 W. Hwy 30A, Santa
Rosa Beach in Walton
County on Tuesday, Janu-
ary 16, 2006 with a social
hour at 6:30 PM, and the
meeting/celebration to start
promptly at 7 p.m.
The public is invited;
membership to the club is
not required for attending
the meeting or dining. If
you intend to dine at the
Club either before or after
the meeting they recom-
mend making a reservation;
The Club begins serving at
5:30 p.m. Phone 850-267-
1240 for reservations.

267-0057 or 267-1404, or

No Fireworks at.year's final meeting of planning commission


By LEAH STRATMANN
The Higher Standard, a
proposed major develop-
ment, was the only item on
the agenda at the last plan-
ning commission meeting,
which generated public com-
ment. Gerald and Pat
Wallens had requested ap-
proval of a major develop-
ment application consisting
of a real estate office with two
mddel modular home dis-
plays on .77 acres on the west
side of U.S. 331 South, north
of U.S. 98 and south of the
Clyde B. Wells Bridge.

County planning director
Pat Blackshear noted this
project had been continued a
number of times due to no-
tice issues and some opposi-
tion to have the two modu-


lar units displayed along the
scenic corridor. "The design
review board has decided
there has to be some changes
to the code because it states
there are to be no modular
homes on the corridor, but
these homes will not be resi-
dences. The applicant can
use them only as model
homes set up permanently on
this site. If anything
changes, they would have to
go through the whole ap-
proval process again."
The Wallens told the com-
missioners they felt the
homes were attractive and
would be an asset to the sce-
nic corridor. The homes will
be without water, but will
have electricity.
John Hazleton and Tom
McKinsey, who own property


adjacent to the project oppose
the project. Hazleton noted
the Wallens don't own the
property where the homes
will be placed and he and
McKinsey objected to be
signage and contended none
of the criteria in the scenic
corridor were being adhered
to. When asked by Commis-
sioner Tom Patton to name
the violations, none were
forthcoming except the nota-
tion that the color code re-
quirement for the corridor.

Larry Gamble, owner of
the property where the devel-
opment will be located, noted
the Wallens have a binding
three-year lease, renewable
each year after that. "If they
do not renew the lease, the
modular homes will not re-


main there," he said.
Commissioner Patton
made a motion to approve
the project as long as the
owner of the property joined
in the development order.
The motion was seconded
and passed by all.

Other projects approved
by the commission include
the following:
Forest View Village, a
planned urban development'
amendment. The project had
previously been approved for
468 single-family lots, 64
multi-family units, and
160,000 square feet of com-
mercial development. The
project as revised calls for
450 single-family homes,
5,000 square feet of office
space, and 387,800 square


feet of commercial space. The
property is approximately
111 acres located on the
north side of U.S. 98 approxi-
mately three miles east of CR
395 intersection.
Gamble Trace: R & B Con-
struction of Northwest
Florida, Inc. requesting ap-
proval to place five single-
family units on 3.3 acres n
the east side of U.S. 331, ap-
proximately one-half mile
south of the Clyde B. Wells
Bridge. This project was ap-
proved with no discussion.
The Church of Latter Day
Saints requested approval to
construct a meeting hall and
a sanctuary of approximately
6,500 square feet on 4.6 acres
located 150 feet north of U.S.
Hwy 98 on Geronimo Street.
The commissioners granted


approval unanimously.
Beachwalk Investment
LLC proposed a 67-lot single-
family subdivision with a
pool. On 17.5 acres on land
with the designation of
neighborhood planning infill.
The site is located on the
north side of CR-30A on
Brentwood Lane. This is a
conceptual planned urban
development at this stage
and the developers were
granted permission to pro-
ceed.

The final item to gain ap-
proval was Draper Pointe, a
major development consist-
ing of a 12,078 square foot
mixed use building on .81
acres of land at the northeast
corner of CR-30A and Blue
Pine Boulevard.

PREVENT FROZEN PIPES THIS WINTER
Freezing weather may bring discomforts but one of them.
frozen water pipes, can be avoided with a little planning and a
few, simple steps. When frigid artic air hits, water freezes, and
as it freezes, it expands causing pipes to burst and possible
flooding to occur.

Pipes that freeze most frequently are those that are exposed to
severe cold, such as outdoor hose bibs, showers, swimming
pool supply lines, water sprinkler lines and water supply pipes
in unheated interior areas such as basements and craw\ I spaces,
attics. garages or kitchen cabinets. Pipes that run against
exterior walls that have little or no insulation are also subject
to freezing.

There are several things that people can do to prepare for
freezing weather, and there is on'e important thing everyone
needs to know. Determine \\here the shut-off valve is in the
house and how to use it in case pipes freeze and break.
SCheck around the home for other areas where after
suppl\ lines are located in unheated areas. Look in the
basement, crawl space, attic, garage, and under kitchen
and bathroom cabinets. Both hot and cold water pipes
in these areas should'be insulated. A hot water supply
line can freeze just as a cold water supply line can
freeze if after is not running through the pipe, and the
water temperature becomes cold.

Keep garage doors closed if there are w after supply
lines in the garage.

When the vw weather is very cold outside, let the cold
Skater drip (at a minimal amount) from the faucet served
b\ exposed pipes. Running \\ water through the pipe. even
at a trickle, helps prevent frozen pipes.


* If ou \\ill be going a\wa during cold weather, leave
the heat set to a temperature no lower than 55'F.

30-A Therapy



addressing mental


health
By BRUCE COLLIER
30-A Therapy, located in a
south Walton's highly scenic 1
CR-30A Grayton Beach area,
has the outward look of a spa.
One enters to hear pleasant s
music, sit on comfortable
chairs, and wait while sipping r
coffee or water. There are s
even sweets on a table, with w
an invitation to help oneself. I
However, the purpose of c
the place is not to pamper the c
body, but to attempt to heal
the mind. A group of mental 1
health practitioners from the d
area have banded together to s
offer what one calls a "one- a
stop shopping" in mental s
health care, in.a "non-sterile,
non-typical mental health c
atmosphere." g
The four are licensed psy- p
chologist Jack Keller, licensed t
mental 'health counselors
Valerie A. Peterson and t
Suzette J. DeJarnette, and g
owner/office manager Rose-
mary McLendon, whose back- g
ground is in special .ed-uca- \
tion. A fifth;'psychiatrist Dr.. f
Neolson Handal, visits 'r
monthly.
The object of this mix is to a
offer a structured "con- t
tinuum" of services, with w


in county


varying levels of credentials
nd areas of concentration.
The office has been open since
November of 2005.
According to Peterson,
south Walton County is
underserved" in the area of
mental health care, Persons
seeking counseling have been
killing to travel to Grayton
each, and those in the area
:an make it "part of their
lay."
Among the common prob-
ems seen at the office are
Irug and alcohol addiction,
sexual abuse, depression,
anxiety, marital and relation-
ship issues, and parenting.
It's not easy to be a parent,
or a kid," says Peterson. A
rowing problem, thanks in
)art to the Internet, is addic-
ion to pornography.
The office offers individual
herapy, and plans to begin
groups in 2007. An employee
assistance program seeks to
give help to working people
hose problems might inter-
6te: with' their -job perfor-
nance.. .
Keller likes the collegiality,
mnd finds input from other

work. There are three offices


at 30A Therapy, each fur-
nished with inviting chairs
and decorated with an eye
toward local art and artists.
The four expect to offer
more specialized therapy and

gradually. McLendon is al-
ready looking at expanding
the facility space itself. "Our
future goals are based on the
evolution of the needs of the
community."

NEW YEAR'S weekend
was a busy one in south
Walton County, with many
second-home owners and a
good number of visitors at the
beach to ring'in the holiday.
Activity was also up at the
area's natural "crown jewels,"
the parks, with campgrounds
reportedly full at Topsail Hill
State Preserve arid Grayton
Beach State Recreation Area
for the weekend. With the
shirt-sleeve weather on New
Year's Day, it was a logical
choice forfamilies to enjoy the
day outside on the beach and/
or at one of the parks, Deer
Lake State Park, pictured,
being one of the options.

Right now .'
May actually be
one of the best times
to buy a home. Consider these facI:l

INTEREST RATES NEAR RECORD LOWS


Today's interest rates are comparable to 40-year lows,
offering homebuyers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

LARGE INVENTORY WON'T LAST

There are currently eleven thousand homes and
condominiums for sale along the.Emerald Coast. We have
had a record inventory of homes on the market in recent
months, offering consumers the greatest choice in decades.


PRICES OVERALL HAVE STABILIZED


Contracts for home sales in August are up 4.3 percent'
and the outlook is for home prices to increase next year.


POSITIVE OUTLOOK


. '-" s Former Federal Reserve
:.. Chair Alan Greenspan recently
said that housing prospects are looking up. "Most of the
negatives in housing are probably behind us. The fourth
quarter should be reasonably good, certainly better than
the third quarter."2 According to industry estimates, 2006
will be the third-best year on recordfor home sales.'

REAL ESTATE IS A GREAT INVESTMENT

Homeownership is a safe, secure way to build long-
term wealth. The national median price of homes bought
ten years, ago has increased 88 percent.3 The number of
.US households is expected to increase 15 percent during
the next decade, creating a continued high demand for
housing.4

DON'T DELAY

Now is a great time to buy or sell a home. Call your
REALTOR or go to EmeraldCoastH-omesOnline.com, the
official residential listing web site of the Emerald Coast
Association of REALTORS'.

With the new year
just a couple of days
old, many resolu-
tions have been
made to stop old
habits, pick up new
ones and for many,
trying to get that
Christmas package
off their mid-sec-
tions. But just in
time, there are sev-
eral events that
might put that diet
on hold.

One of the most popular
New Year's resolutions is di-
eting. It is the one thing that
you hear people complain the
most about during the holi-
day season.
S"When the new year rolls
around, I am getting back in
the gym," or "I swear that
those 10 extra pounds, I
picked up from Thanksgiving
until New Year's Eve, are
coming off before Valentines."
The battle of the bulge has
begun and we all have our


own resolutions and prom-
ises we made ourselves that
we intend to keep until the
pounds are lying on the floor
and gone from our waist.
But just like every other
temptation in life, there are
things that make such mat-
ters more difficult.
With only six days after
the strike of the new year,
the Taste of Fort Walton re-
turns with their food sam-
pling on Jan. 7. The event is
sponsored by the Fort Wal-
ton Beach Chamber of Com-
merce.
Every year, usually the
first of January, the event
takes place at the Westwood
Retirement Resort. The
event showcases 20
restuarants in the area, pre-


paring a variety of sishes and
delicacies.,
The Taste of Fort Walton
grows larger every year and
the sampling will take place
for three hours, from 1-4 p.m.
For more information, call the
FWB Chamber of Commerce
at 244-8191.
The second "gorge-fest" is
the annual Gumbo Cook-off
taking place on Jan. 13 at the
Market Shops at Sandestin. A
day complete with everything
spicy and plenty of starchy,
carbohydrate-filled rice.
The 18th annual Great
Gumbo Cook-off returns to
the shops, just in time to en-
tice and tease all of us who
want to shead those extra
pounds. With their tempting
delicacies and spicy recipes,


cook-off participants will be
tempted by numerous fine
restaurants and all they
have to offer.
For more information, call
267-8092.
Those who want to stick to
their diets a few more weeks,
can prepare and make room
for more culinary delights at
the inaugural Taste of Free-
port, taking place March 24
at Hammock Bay Properties.
The. event, sponsored by
the Freeport Town Planters,
will showcase local restau-
rants and caterers. Each par-
ticipating food vendor will
offer a sample of their spe-
cial delicacies.
There will be entertain-
ment throughout the day,
fine arts and crafts and a
wine tasting.
For more information, call
Hilltop Productions at 951-
2148.
So whether you are on the
diet now, or have plans to be-
gin one in the next few days.
give yourself a treat and save
some space for these.food-
tasting events. Belts have
extra holes and those skirts
can last for just another
month.
