By BRUCE COLLIER
The January meeting of
the Paxton Town Council ran
a little longer than usual.
Two subjects, a proposed vol-
untary annexation of prop-
erty and a status update on
the approaching Dixie Youth
League season were the
main areas of discussion. In
attendance at the beginning
of the meeting were council
members Ann Sexton, Bill
McRae, Jenice Armstrong,,
Joe Melton, and Mayor
Wanda Smith. Council mem-
ber Bobby Kemp joined in
mid-meeting, having been
out on a fire/rescue call. City
attorney Loriann Bytell was
also present.
The meeting convened at
7 p.m. Following routine
business, the council heard
Paxton Dixie Youth League
president Christa Mitchell's
presentation on the state of
the league. Mitchell said that
the league had reviewed the
agreement with the city on
use of the ballfield, and
brought up a few points for


clarification. After discus-
sion, it was agreed that hang-
ing signs would.be permitted
on the ballfield's fences and
that a tree planted on the
field would be removed.

Mitchell also requested
permission for a parade on
opening day (March 10) and
for donation of a flag pole and
flag. Council member McRae
presented a price, and it was
agreed to purchase and do-
nate a pole and flag. Also dis-
cussed were ongoing security
issues on the ballfield, and
the league's responsibility for
equipment stored during the
season. Council member
Melton reminded the council

The DeFuniak Springs
City Council's decision last
year to remove existing caps
on city utilities tax has been
received quietly, according to
City Manager Kim Presnell.
"I'm not aware of any
calls," said Presnell, adding
that the staffandthe city re-
ceptionist had not received
any comments or complaints
regarding the change.
In 1937, the DeFuniak
Springs Town Council voted
to impose a six percent tax
on seller's charges for "elec-
tricity, gas, water or tele-
phone service" in DeFuniak
Springs.
The' ordinance was
amended in 1958 to raise the
tax to 10 percent for the same
services.
In 1980, a cap was im-
posed on the tax, of $10 for
residential consumers and
$20 for commercial or indus-
trial consumers.


In 1987. the caps were
raised to $15 for residential
and $30 for commercial and
industrial. That amendment
included a provision under
which the new caps would
remain "in full force and ef-
fect until September 30,
1989 and that time the city
council will make adjust-
ments back tothe $10.00 and
$20.00 cap if so desired."
The council made no ad-
justment in 1989. However,
Florida's then-Attorney Gen-
eral Robert A. Butterworth
issued an advisory legal
opinion that same year. re-
sponding to a question from
the city attorney for
Groveland. Groveland had
imposed a 10 percent cap on
city utility taxes.
Butterworth said that, in
his opinion, the statute au-
thorizing taxation did not at
the same time "authorize or

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, JANUARY 18, 2007


ARGYLE FIRE Department Chief Charlie Day looks over a new water pumper, donated by
Walton County ARC. In an emergency, the pump will allow the department to grab water
from ponds and lakes, rather than break off from firefighting to go to a pumping station.

favorable response from the
board. "The [football] field
will be the one thing that will
be measured by the public,"
he said.
"We're very proud of this
council for its help"
Also discussed were efforts
to procure a reasonably
priced scoreboard, and foot-
ball field clearing and con-
struction. Seay assured the
council that the football pro-
gram had raised the money
for pay for equipment. "We
will be in the black."
Next on the agenda was a
proposal from representa-
tives of the Carnley, family,
which had rented the town
halllast year for a gathering,
and reportedly left the pre-
mises in a less-than-satisfac-
tory condition. "This was not
the first year this was a prob-
lem," said council member
Sexton.
Family spokesmen said
that they had been using the
facility for some 20 years, and
had the city notified them,
they would have come back
and cleaned up the hall.
"We'd have appreciated that
courtesy," said one. After a
brief discussion, it was agreed
that the family could use the
facility again.
The next item on the
agenda was an in-progress
petition for voluntary annex-
ation made by Gill Taylor.
Taylor owns property outside
the city limits, and is trying
to get annexed so that he can
build a home on his property.
Taylor had been seeking sig-
natures from his neighbors
acquiescing to the annex-
ation, but said that there has
been "some rescinding of
agreement." Taylor had in-
vited his neighbors to the
meeting to clear up any ru-
mors or misunderstandings.
One area of concern was
whether annexation would
change current zoning on
property. Attorney Bytell said
that it would not. Questions
were also raised about main-
tenance of roads and furnish-
ing of city services to annexed
property.
"Will every effort be made
that the utilities will be the
same as the city's?" asked
Taylor.
"If you're in the city, we can
look into city services," said


ARC

donates

pump to

Argyle Fire

Department

Walton County ARC, Inc.,
Highway 83N, DeFuniak
Springs has announced their
intention to donate a new
sump pump to the Argyle
Fire Department in memory
of Bill Adkison and in honor
of his lifelong contributions
to the citizens of Walton
County, both as a firefighter
and as an outstanding citi-
zen.
This pump will enable a
tanker to be refilled from any
available body of water while
maintaining a safe distance
from an unstable surface.
This effort by Walton County
ARC, Inc. will be a valuable
asset to the Argyle Fire De-
partment and the citizens
they serve.


CONTINUED FROM FRONT


McRae. "Outside the city, it's
a county matter."
Sexton asked whether the
law required immediate pro-
vision of city services to an-
nexed property, and whether
this was actionable against
the city by property owners
seeking the services.
Bytell answered that most
cities draw up a plan and
timetable for supplying city
services to city property, in-
cluding annexed property.
Taylor said that he has
been diligently "knocking on
doors," but has not been able
to contact 100 percent of the
affected owners. Voluntary
annexation requires 10Q per-,
cent and contiguous agree-
ment, said Bytell. Melton
asked Taylor whether he was
planning to build anything
other than a dwelling for him-
self on his property.
"No," said Taylor, adding
that rumors that he is plan-
ning to build condos are not
true.
One final question was
asked by a property owner.
"Can I still hunt on my prop-
erty?"
He was told that if he
could legally hunt on it now,
annexation would not affect
that.
A final reading and adop-
tion was made of the amend-
ment to the city's existing or-
dinance raising water rates.
The amendment adds schools
to the list of properties whose
water rates will be raised, as
already voted into law by the
council.
Other items covered at the
meeting included efforts to
purchase aplaque commemo-
rating Paxton founders to ac-
company one that commemo-
rates Paxton founders who
were members of the Ruritan
club. It was agreed to compile
a list of appropriate names for
the plaque.
Mayor Smith has ordered
a new computer to replace
one that has crashed.
Bytell said she will con-
tinue to work with Taylor on
the proposed voluntary an-
nexgtion.
Melton raised the subject
of approaching the Federal
Aviation Administration
(FAA) about removing the
city's airfield, which is on FAA
maps as a private field, from


the maps, owing to the wter
tower and neighboring ath-
letic fields. It was agreed to
discuss this with the FAA.
McRae said that the
ballfield should be fully op-
erational, including lights, by
opening day of the Little
League.
Sexton reminded the coun-
cil that a streetlight on
Adams Street at Clear
Springs Road still needed re-


pair. Kemp said that the poles
are numbered, and he would
contact Chelco or Gulf Power
about fixing the light.

City clerk Suzan Davis
presented the council with
specifications on bids for an
emergency lift station, in con-
nection with the disaster
grant, for its review.
The meeting adjourned at
8:40 p.m.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, JANUARY 18, 2007


City FROM FRONT


otherwise empower a munici-
pality to exempt from taxa-
tion that portion of the ser-
vice generating tax revenue
in excess of an established
monetary cap.
"Thus, it is my opinion that
the City of Groveland may
not provide a maximum mon-
etary cap per monthly billing
period for those items or ser-
vices taxable [under the state
statute governing municipali-
ties and public service taxes]"
said Butterworth.
Attorney general opinions
are not legally equivalent to
statutes or even court opin-
ions, but they are deemed to
carry some advisory and per-
suasive weight.
A March 2006 review of
DeFuniak Springs' financial
and codes was made by Ken
Small and the Florida League
of Cities, said Presnell. The
review determined that the
the attorney general's 1989
opinion did not support the
monetary caps.
In August of 2006, the city
council voted to change the
ordinance, which now simply
provides for a 10 percent tax
of "the total amount charged
for such utility service or com-
modity."
In October of 2006,
Presnell sent a memorandum
to Gulf Power and
Choctawhatchee Electric Co-
operative, Inc. (CHELCO).
The letter cites the review
and the decision to bring the
ordinance in line with the"
reasoning of the attorney
general's opinion.
Wayne Thompson, chief
financial officer for CHELCO,
said that CHELCO sent out
letters to its customers in De-
cember, the first Billing cycle
that would affect customers
under the new system. Th-
ompson said he told the city
that they ought to tell the
public about it themselves.
"It's your tax, I told them,"
said Thompson. The
CHELCO letter gave custom-
ers the number of the city of-
fice, referring them there
with any questions. Thomp-


son was concerned that his
customers would think that
CHELCO had raised its
rates.
CHELCO's billing records
indicate that the change will
affect some 425 customers.
Lynn Erickson, public af-
fairs spokesman for Gulf
Power, said that most of Gulf
Power's customers would not
be affected by the change, but
"a few large industrial cus-
tomers" would see a "signifi-
cant" change. In those cases,
she said, Gulf Power would
contact them personally to
discuss the change, rather
than simply send out a memo.
The change will not be

seen on customers' bills until
the end of this month, said
Erickson.
Under the old system, a
residential customer paid 10
percent of the total bill, up to


$15. Thus, a residential cus-
tomer with a $200 monthly
bill would still pay no more
than $15.
Under the new system,
that same customer would


now pay $20.
A commercial customer,
whose bill is $1,000 a month,
will now have to pay $100,
rather than the $30 he paid


under the old system.
The ordinance affects only
those persons and businesses
in the city of DeFuniak
Springs.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR





Newsprint and the Internet


By RON KELLEY

In my travels, I am continu-
ally struck by the sheer num-
ber of the amazing techno-
logical toys that we use to
send and receive information.
Not just information, but
music and video, too.
Some of my friends have
cell phones with 'caller ID,'
and 'call waiting' that takes
photographs, shoots video,
connects and surfs the
Internet wirelessly, faxes,
sends e-mails and text mes-
sages, plays music, has a cal-
endar and a calculator, con-
nects to a computer...I think
there's a button that washes
the dishes and opens the ga-
rage door, too.
It's a brave new world out
there and all of us must con-
stantly adapt to the on-
slaught of technology. So
much is changing about how
we communicate, especially
for young people.
Anyone who uses. comput-
ers a lot, has received one of
those e-mails that talk about
all of the things you and I
grew up with and all of the
things that our children sim-
ply take for granted, having
never experienced life with-
out plastic Coke bottles, air-
conditioning, microwave ov-
ens, cable television and other
fairly recent inventions.


One of the new inventions
is the proliferation of mul-
tiple media featuring every
kind of news, for every kind
of taste and political bent. We
have right-wing shows, left-
wing shows and conspiracy
theorists for every fear all
over television, radio, maga-
zines and the Internet. All of
this has led to the practice of
what I call 'news-shopping.'
That is people who search
for news that has whatever
slant that best fits their own
personal political belief sys-
tem. I hear people all the
time say, 'Oh, I don't trust
any network news, they're
part of 'The Big Media Con-
spiracy' and so Ilisten to Bill
O'Reilly instead.' Sometimes,
they'll say, 'I only watch Fox
or maybe a little CNN.'
Unbelievable. Reporting on
something you don't agree
with does not make a net-
work untrustworthy.
Another change is that, as
we come to use our electronic
toys more often, we run the
risk of absorbing only quick,
glossy, sensationalized news
bits; sort of'McNEWS Lite.
At the rate corporations are
buying newspapers, televi-
sion stations and radio sta-
tions, it's no wonder that the
news is becoming homog-
enized, pasteurized and pre-
packaged. If allowed to go

on U.S. 98 in Miramar Beach. Over three years ago, the Wal-
ton County Code Enforcement officers started harassing me
for having outdoor merchandise and a sign that can actually
be seen by cars whizzing by at 50 mph. It resulted in me
being found "guilty" and being fined $100 per day until I
conform, while giving other like businesses a total pass.
Since they refuse to recognize my legal non-conforming
status (the grandfather clause) as a business that existed
long (24 years) before that Land Developnment Codes, I and
.another business, Dave's Glass, have taken Walton County
to the Florida Federal Court.
If I had robbed a bank or killed someone, Iwould have had
a swifter justice, but because I am a tax-paying, law-abiding,
job-providing, hard-working business owner in Walton
County, they are allowed to continually stall and delay my
right to be heard in court ( a tactic they use to discourage
you from continuing your fight, plus the $80,000 + that its
costing to continue to fight this injustice).
So, if there's anyone out there that feels that Walton County
is totally out of line, we'd appreciate any and all help to bring
this injustice to an end.
Thanks for letting me be heard.
Janet Reeves

A~~A., LC


unchecked, soon all news in
America will come from no
more than a dozen corpora-
.tions.
I've read that, among ma-
jor newspapers, readership
has gone down as Internet
use has gone up. The differ-
ence, it is said, is due to
young people's reading hab-
its. Young people are simply
doing what they've always
done which is the exact op-
posite of whatever dear old
mom and dad do. The eter-
nal quest for sublime 'Cool-
ness' makes them embrace
that which is new. Yayyyy!
Unfortunately, some of
what is new are called blogs.
These are bad because blogs
are nothing more than the
ranting, musings and, ab-
stract thoughts of a single in-
dividual, who may be misin-
formed, bewildered or on
medication. Their writings
(usually without such old-
fashioned trappings as cor-
rect spelling or grammar) do
not have to be based on veri-
fiable facts or truth, intellect
or knowledge.
That's really bad, but the
absolute worst is Wikipedia,
a kind of online encyclopedia.
That doesn't sound bad, but
it's what you don't know that
gets you. Much of what's in
Wikipedia is patently false or
misleading. Why? Because
anyjughead with a computer
can 'correct' or 'modify' the
information available there.
Even the bona fide news
services have to package the
news in small, easy-to-digest
little nuggets. You get the
headline and 30-seconds of
soundbytes. No wonder
people go news-shopping.
My advice, enjoy all of the
other as much as you want,
but when you want the whole
story, pick up a newspaper -
preferably not one owned by
a huge, multi-national corpo-
rate conglomerate and get
the real news. It may not al-
ways please you. The guy you
don't like may be dissem-
bling on the front page, but
keep reading, next week he
might be in shackles testify-
ing before Congress.
As for newspaper sales
trends, locally, the Herald
and Breeze are rapidly grow-
ing along with their reader-
ship. The big.newspapers
should hang on for a few
years. Young readers will re-
turn. When I was a teenager,
I though my father was hope-
lessly old-fashioned, out-of-
touch and over-the-hill. I re-
member being amazed at
how much smarter he got as
I grew older. I predict this
will happen again in your
lifetime, too. After all, once a
statement is uttered on ra-
dio or television, it's gone and
can't be recalled. Newsprint
is forever.
You can quote me on that.





Editor:
For a time in the DFS Her-
ald there appeared a para-
graph or two on what the
public works department was
currently doing. Each district
mention what is was doing
and recently finished.
In the last several issues of
the paper, I have been unable
to find that article. I suggest
you begin again to publish
those reports since it gives
those of us who otherwise
would not know the pro-
grams of public works and
where. I, for one miss those
reports.
Sincerely
Charles F. Adams
Laurel Hill

Editor's Note
That information was com-
piled and submitted by the
Walton County Public Infor-
mation Coordinator,,but it
has since been discontinued

LETER OTEEITOR


Editor:
This letter expresses our appreciation to all who attended the Christmas Eve Service at
First United Methodist Church. It was a rainy, windy, cold, night, but we had a full church.
We collected $2,528.66 for the White Christmas Fund.
Thank you so very much for your attendance, cooperation, and generosity. We not only
made our goal of $12,000 but exceeded it by $3,500. This gives us a total of $15,500, every
penny of which will be used by the United Methodist Children's Home.
Marianne Hussey
Representative of UMCH

PAGE 10-A THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, JANUARY 18, 2007

The Florida Chautauqua Inc. announces the


upcoming/performances of The Reggie Saddler Family.


The Reggie Saddler Fam-
ily will be performing, Satur-
day, Feb. 3, 7 p.m. at the
Florida Chautauqua The-
ater, 840 Baldwin Avenue,
DeFuniak Springs FL.
Tickets are $15 general ad-
mission and will go on sale
Monday, Jan. 22. Tickets may
be purchased by calling (850)
892-9494. We accept Visa
and Mastercard.
Before accepting Jesus
Christ as his personal Lord
and Savior, Reggie and his
seven piece band worked
professionally with such
groups as Frankie Valli and
the Four Seasons, Jerry Lee
Lewis, the Drifters, and the
Platters. He also performed
at the Las Vegas Hilton with
Bill Cosby, Don Rickles, and
comedian Redd Foxx of
Sanford-and-Son backed by
the Joe Gerceo's 18 piece or-


chestra. (Elvis Presley's band
director at the Las Vegas
Hilton.) Also, at Lake Tahoe
he worked with Dick Clark's
Rock-and-Roll Revival which
featured the likes of Fats
Domino, Chubby Checker,
Rick Nelson, the Platters,
and many others. He was
employed by the Walt Disney
Corporation for 10 years in
Florida and California. One
of his largest crowds was
80,000 in Tokyo, Japan. Then
in the late '70's Reggie Sad-
dler was introduced to Jesus
Christ while visiting Mt. Zion
Missionary Baptist Church
in Los Angeles where Dr.
E.V. Hill was pastor. "Things
Changed" and Reggie left
Rock-and-Roll and joined
Jesus.
The Saddler Family now
features Reggie, his wife
Bridgette (Sugarbabe) and


their 20 year old daughter
Ingra (Babygirl).
The Saddler's travel full
time preaching and singing.
Thousands of souls have
made professions of faith and
trust in Jesus Christ as the
Saddlers have traveled to
minister in Mexico, Alaska,
Haiti, the Virgin Islands,
Canada, Scotland, South Af-
rica, and many cities in the
U.S.
Well known pastors and
evangelists like Dr. Charles
Stanley of In Touch Minis-
tries and Dr. David Jeremiah
of Turning Point use the Sad-
dlers on many of their Bible
cruises at sea. They have
been special guests at the
N.Q.C, the Old Time Gospel
Hour (Dr. Jerry Falwell), the
Harmony Valley Singing
Bailey Smith/Real Evange-
lism, Rick Gage/Go Tell Cru-


sades, Dr. Herb Reavis Jr./
North Jax, Ralph Sexton Jr.
Phil Waldrep, and Mike
Speck/N.Q.C.
Many churches have the
Saddlers on a regular sched-
ule like: Clemments/Athens,
FL, Aloma/Dr. Anthony
George, Providence Rd., Cov-
enant Bible, Wayside Bap-
tist, and the Lighthouse
Children's Home just to
name a few.

The Saddlers came to na-
tional attention after Chris-
tian businessman Charles
Burke of Singing American
Fame introduced the family
to Bill Gaither at the N.Q.C.
Gaither put them on his and
Gloria's Homecoming videos
and they introduced the song
"I've got me a Home," which
has now become a signature
song. The public fell in love


Ask the right questions when selecting a tree


with the family and showed
their approval by giving
them hit songs like: "Any-
time, Anyplace, Anywhere"
(#14); "The Real Thing" (#3
on the singing news top 80);
"We've Got to Tell the Truth"
(#9); "I've Got Me a Home"
(#18); and "This is Not my


Home" moving up the charts
at #29. Other favorites in-
clude: "It's Still the Blood,"
"Old Fella", "Lord's Prayer",
"Precious Lord", and the
Black Grass song "He Will"
is always a favorite and
makes this family one of the
busiest in Gospel music.

Arbor Day in Florida is Fri-
day, Jan. 19, so celebrate by
planting your favorite tree.
However, there are things
to consider before planting.
According to the Interna-
tional Society of Arbor-
iculture (ISA) choosing the
right tree is the first step.
Because most trees have
the potential to outlive the
people who planted them, the
'impact of this decision is
long-term. Tree selection
should be based on these cri-
teria: the location in which it
is to be planted, the correct
species for the environment
(resilience, hardiness, pur-
pose), and long term mainte-


nance needs.
A local nursery or tree farm
should be able to assist in
discovering the best tree
based on these guidelines.
Before deciding what tree
to plant, consider the follow-
ing questions:
1. Why is the tree being
planted?
Do you want the tree to
provide shade, fruit or sea-
sonal color, or act as a wind-
break or screen? Maybe serve
more than one function?
2. What is the size and lo-
cation of the planting site?'
Does the space lend itself
to a large, medium or small
tree? Are there overhead or


below ground wires or utili-
ties in the vicinity?
Do you need to consider
clearance for sidewalks, pa-
tios, or driveways?
Are there other trees in the
area?
3. What conditions exist?
Is the soil deep, fertile, and
well drained, or is it shallow,
compacted, and infertile?
How much sunlight is
available?
When is the best time to
plant for your region based
on weather conditions?
4. What type of mainte-
nance are you willing to pro-
vide?
Do you have time to water,


fertilize, and prune the newly
planted tree until it is estab-
lished, or will you be relying
on your garden or tree service
for assistance?

Homeowners who have dif-
ficulty answering any of
these questions should con-
tact an ISA Certified Arborist
in their local area for assis-
tance.

The arborist will help you
to plant the "right tree in the
right place."
To learn more about tree
planting and tree care or to
find a Certified Arborist visit

Girl Scouts mark 90


years of tempting treats


Since 1917 Girl Scouts have
been selling cookies as a way
to earn money to fund com-
munity service projects and
program activities. A lot has
changed since the days of
home-baked shortbread cook-
ies, but the Girl Scout tradi-
tion of building character,
community service and ad-
venture remain the same.
Girl Scouts throughout
northwest Florida begin tak-
ing orders for America's fa-
vorite cookies on Jan. 19,
2007. The annual cookie sale
continues through March 17,
in Escambia, Santa Rosa,
Okaloosa and Walton coin-
ties. This year's varieties in-
clude Thin Mints, Caramel
deLites, Shortbread, Peanut
Butter Patties, Peanut Butter
Sandwich, Reduced Fat Cart-
wheels, Thanks-A-Lots and
Lemonades. Lemonades are
this year's new addition a
savory slice of shortbread
with a tangy lemon icing.
Each box sells for $3.50. All
Girl Scout cookies are made
with no artificial 1preserva-
tives, no trans fats, and they
are kosher.
Another new aspect of this
year's cookie sale is the
Young-Business-Owner-in-
Training program for girls in
grades 7-12. This program
offers girls the opportunity to
operate as a sole proprietor-
ship or in partnership with
another girl, and is designed
to help girls go beyond the
traditional sales program by
preparing and delivering
sales presentations to local
businesses in their commu-
nity. With this program the
girls not only.reach new mar-
kets but also develop their
communication and manage-
ment skills. A unique variety
pack featuring all eight flay
ors is an ideal customer cour-
tesy or employee appreciation
gift.

meeting

scheduled
The Chautauqua Cyber
Club will meet Jan. 20, at 9
a.m. at the OWC Chau-
tauqua Center in DeFuniak
Springs. There will be a spe-
cial presentation of the PBS
program, "Internet at Risk by
Bill Moyers." The regular
monthly meeting will follow
the presentation.
The club was organized in
1998 for the purpose of pro-
viding a learning opportunity
for new computer users, and
provide a venue for helping
each other become more pro-
ficient in computer use. A
strong community service
program has been main-
tained over the years that
has provided computers to
people who are homebound
or in need for education pur-
poses.
The meeting on Jan. 20 is
open to members and visitors
alike who are concerned
about the future of the
Internet, and who wish to
simply talk computers.

J. B. Hillard, 892-3450.


a tried and true method of
teaching girls about respon-
sibility,. goal setting, basic
business principles and fi-
nancial management," said
Cindy Nelson, executive di-
rector. "I've even had a par-
ent tell me that though her
daughter is not a particularly
good math student, when it
comes to her cookie money
she knows exactly what's
what!"
Also included in this year's
Cookie Sale is the popular
"Treats for Troops" program.
This campaign was developed
with the help of congressman
Jeff Miller in 2003 to show
support for our local military
personnel stationed overseas.
Throughout the weekend of
March 9-11, Girl Scout Cook-
ies will be available at
Cordova Mall in Pensacola.
Cookies purchased for mili-
tary personnel will be
shipped overseas by local
UPS Stores at no cost to the
customer. Clear Channel ra-
dio will conduct live broad-
casts throughout the week-
end and provide cookie cus-
tomers a chance at the Clear
Channel prize wheel.. The
event will kick-off at 5 p.m.
Friday night and continue
throughout the weekend dur-
ing the mall's regular hours.
Cookie delivery and booth
sales begin March 2. All pro-
ceeds from the cookie sale re-
main in the local community

been torn off. "That wasn't
what he had planned
originally," she says. Most
of the costly upgrades is
being paid through state
grants provided through the
Florida Bureau of Historic
Preservation.
Father Ashmun Brown,
who heads up the church,
says if it wasn't for a poor
parish in the past, the
church may have been torn
down years ago. "They tell
people the great gift we had
was the gift of poverty," he
says. "We never had enough
money to tear down this old
church and put up a nice
modern building. The result
is, here we are, in 2007, and
we have this wonderful,
wonderful building."
Henderson agrees,
despite the rising costs of
repairs. "We hope that in
the end we will have a
better product," she says,"

Satsuma Tree


By DARA DOBSON,
Walton Co. Master Gardener
In 1872, J. Sterling Morton proposed that a special day be
set aside for planting trees. This holiday became known as Ar-
bor Day. In years past, it was observed on the last Friday in
April. Today, each state selects their own day for observance
based on the best tree planting date for that region. Florida
has designated the third Friday in January as Arbor Day. Ar-
bor day this year will be on Friday, January 19. The Master
Gardeners of Walton County will hold their Annual Tree and
Shrub Sale on Saturday, January 20, from 9 a.m. to noon. The
sale will be held at the Walton Fairgrounds on Hwy. 83.
The National Tree is the oak (Fagaceae family). There are
approximately 500 species that grow in the northern hemi-
sphere. Florida's oaks are often thought of as being more char-
acteristic of the northern part of our state. Of the 24 oak spe-
cies native to Florida, the live oak (Quercus virginiana) is the
only oak found statewide. Florida has more native tree species
than any other state. Of the 625 trees native to North America,
at least 275 are found in Florida. Florida's state tree is the
Cabbage Palm (Sabal palmetto) Sadly, the state has lost mil-
lions of trees the last two years due to the hurricanes. It is of
vital importance that people replace these trees. If local trees
have not recovered from the storms by now, it's time to replace
them. Don't put it off! Every year means the loss of one more
year's growth.




The Master Gardeners of Walton
County will hold their Annual Tree '
and Shrub Sale on Saturday,
January 20, from 9 a.m. to noon.
The sale will be held at the
SWalton Fairgrounds
on Hwy. 83.


Arbor Day is a great time to remember how important our trees
are to our ecosystem. A tree can manufacture five pounds of
pure oxygen a day. Trees also consume carbon dioxide. This
helps to fight the greenhouse effect that threatens man's sur-
vival. Carefully placed trees can provide cooling summer shade
and maximize energy gains from winter sunlight, cutting an-
nual home energy use by as much as 15 percent to 35 percent.
Deciduous trees shade and cool homes in the summer, then
when their leaves fall in the winter they allow warming sun-
light to shine through. For best results, plant trees to the east
and west of the house. Planting trees to shade air conditioning
compressor units can increase cooling efficiency as much as 10
percent. A mature tree can provide the cooling equivalent of
ten room-sized air conditioning units. With energy prices go-
ing up, planting trees strategically makes. better sense now
than ever before.

"Every tree we plant strengthens the glo-
bal forest...connecting us to all who have
gone before us and all who will follow..."

Trees are also a vital component in our landscape for sup-
porting wildlife. Birds and small animals need concealed places
for nesting and hiding from predators. Planting evergreens in
small groups will attract more birds to one's yard Birds love
cedars and hollies. Flowering trees like dogwoods, redbuds and
fringe trees have beautiful flowers and attract birds, too. Fruit
trees have gorgeous spring flowers before they set fruit.
Butterflies also depend on Florida trees. The following six
species of oak trees provide butterfly larval food: Chapman's
oak (Quercus chapmanni) sand live oak (Q. geminata) laurel
oak (Q. laurafolia), water oak (Q. nigra) willow oak (Q.phellos)
and live oak (Q. virginiana). Other beautiful butterfly attrac-
tant trees are sweet bay magnolias, American elms, tulip pop-
lars and red buckeyes. These are just a few of the choices avail-
able.
This year, local Master Gardeners will have more citrus trees
available. There will be limes, lemons, kumquats and satsu-
mas. Other fruits like blueberries, blackberries, apples, and
figs will be sold too. A limited selection of pecans will also be
available this year.
Walton County Master Gardeners will be on hand to answer
questions about the selections. Free printed material that ad-
dresses fertilization, pruning and maintenance of the plants
consumers choose will be available at the checkout tables.

at 892-8172.

"Seasonal Florida


A Taste of Life in N9orti florida"


By RON KELLEY
When Jo Manning set out
to write a cookbook 17 years
ago, she thought it would be
a quick easy way to raise
some cash for repairs on an
old Circle Drive mansion that
she and her sisters had pur-
chased together. The house
appears on the front cover
"I was wrong," she said. "I
kept thinking, 'It just can't be
taking this long to put this
cookbook together.'" Her son,
Trey, did much of the graph-
ics and layout for the original
book and daughter Kameryn
has worked on the text, "but
people have no idea what goes
into putting a cookbook to-


gether. Neither did I," she
quipped. "It took five years.
We thought we were going to
make a lot of money, but we
didn't," she laughed. "With
the cost of creating the cook-
book, nothing has gone into
this house yet."
Despite the arduous task
of putting the book together,
it has been well-received. The
original book was printed in
1994 and has sold more than
15,000 copies. It was re-
printed twice and the newest
edition has more than 250
additional recipes. Part of the
reason for its success is that
"Seasonal Florida -A Taste of
Life in North Florida" con-


tains more than just recipes.
It also contains rare photo-
graphs, family history and
historical recollections of the
area, from Pensacola to Jack-
sonville.
Anna Jo McDonald Man-
ning, who was born in DeFu-
niak Springs, met landscape
architect Wayne Manning in
college. They got married,
had two children, Trey and
Kameryn, and spent much of
her life teaching school in
Jacksonville. She also owned
and operated a private school
there for several years. Now
retired, she divides her time
between Jacksonville, DeFu-
niak Springs and the


hi' I








.. .


McDonald family's original
home-site in Eucheeanna
Valley, here in Walton
County.
Many of the recipes came
from Manning's grandpar-
ents and family members,
including her husband's fam-
ily. Wayne Manning will
"drive 50 miles out of the way
to try a new restaurant or to
get the freshest vegetables or
best cuts of meat or other in-
gredients, which adds greatly
to any recipe," said Manning.
"When we get a recipe, we
always try it and then decide
what might make it a little bit
better. I've changed a lot of
them, but some recipes don't
need anything else, they're
perfect just as they are."
Jo has managed to get
more than one chef to share
his own signature recipes
with her and these were
taken down faithfully, with-
out additions or subtractions.
Her favorite recipes? "All
of them!" she said. "I've made
every one of them and I like
every one of them. We just
cook out of that book." There
are two exceptions. Manning
says she has never prepared
the chitlin recipe or the opos-
sum recipe. "Those came from
my father and I could not
bring myself to actually eat
them. I included them,
they're historical."
Manning says the most re-
warding thing about the cook-
book is the response from
people who have read it and
Used it.


THE WHITEWAY DELI, an 85-year landmark in Jacksonville, was the source of this "People will write and say
tabbouleh recipe. Across the page is a picture of sister Genny, "who keeps the best herb garden thank you for taking me
ever (and) prefers this salad over the old-fashioned potato salad and serves it often." back' or 'I remember when
my father did that.' That
makes you feel good. One lady
had lost her family's recipes
-'- '-.. -- for cornbread and turkey
S- dressing and she wrote to
i i '!. 1 thank me for including them
and said they were just like
L-
Y'. what she was used to, grow-
-.. ing up," said Manning.
S .She said the owner of the
S. only cookbook store in New
York City called it, "The cook-
Sbook you want to see, but so
seldom do."
I For Jo Manning, "Seasonal
S Florida" is more than a cook-
S..... book. It is the flavor of her
family's lives, it is part of
S..their history, their memories
Sand is as much heirloom as
cookbook. "It's brought us all
closer and is a kind of legacy
"- for me and my whole family."
"Seasonal Florida -A Taste


of Northern Florida" is avail-
able through Barnes & Noble.

VICAR ASHMUN BROWN introduces Dr. Jean Johnson
at organ concert.


Saint Agatha's 2007 Lakeside Concert series begins with organ recital


By BRUCE COLLIER
The doctor was in the
house at Saint Agatha's
Episcopal Church this past
weekend. Dr. Jean Johnson
entertained a packed audi-
ence in a recital of classical
and modern music on the
church's pipe orgqn. This
concert kicked off the
church's popular Lakeside
Concert Series, and was
dedicated to the memory of
Richard Thornton.
Thornton, who passed
away 'last October, was an
"accomplished organist" who
helped build and upgrade
the church's pipe organ, on


Christ's Way Restoration
Ministries would like to
thank the following people
for making 2006 New Year's
Eve Bash a success for the
second year in a row: Cope
Center, DFS, Trixie at
Brighthouse Cable (Premier
Advertising), Buddy's Fire-


which Johnson played. Mem-
bers of Thornton's family at-
tended the concert.
Johnson is a professor of
music theory and music ap-
preciation at Enterprise-
Ozark Community College,
and is the organist at First
United Methodist Church in
Enterprise. She has
bachelor's, master's, and
doctor's degrees from the
University of North Alabama
and University of Alabama.
Johnson played ten pieces,
from the works of Johann
Sebastian Bach, Felix
Mendelssohn, Eugene
Gigout, Daniel Locklair,


works (Florala) donated an
awesome fireworks show,
ColorTyme, Richard, Wayne
and Craig (donated XBoxes,

free cokes, Todd Murphy
(Wee Care Park) for the time


Emma Lou Diemer, Craig
Phillips, and Michael
Burkhardt.
'The Bach selections were
"Toccata and Fugue in D Mi-
nor," and two choral preludes.
Johnson also played an ex-
cerpt from Locklair's "Ru-
brics" and Diemer's "Toccata
for a Joyful Day."
After an intermission,
Mendelssohn's "Preludium
and Fugue III in D Minor"
started off the second half of
the recital, followed by two
modern hymn preludes by
Phillips and one by
Burkhardt." Gigout's

vide food for sale.
The entertainment for the
evening involved a talent and
fashion show, and special
thanks go out to Pastor and
Co-Pastor Henry Beech for


cluded the recital.
Johnson gave each piece a
brief introduction, including
an anecdote about the short-
tempered Bach, who once
hurled his.wig at an unsat-
isfactory organist, telling
him "you should have been a
cobbler."
At the other end of the
spectrum was Mendelssohn.
He once conducted a concert
piece from memory when an
assistant gave him the
wrong score at a concert, and
Mendelssohn didn't want to
embarrass him.
A reception in the parish
hall followed the concert.

out, providing Christian en-
tertainment, in song, rap and
dance.
The sole purpose of the
New year Bash is to provide

to go that provides a safe,
non-threatening atmo-
sphere.

by Dr. Robert M. Jaye
It was in a garden that
Paradise was lost by Adam.
It was in a garden that our
Lord regained it. John 19:41
has in it these words: "Now
in the place where He was
crucified there was a garden."
The sweet flowers of spring
waved 'their fragrance
around the Cross. There the
Savior, to whose thought they
;owed their beauty, was dying
:for mankind's redemption.
In all the anguish of this
present world, nature contin-
:ues it old routine. Spring
:with its green, summer with
*its glory, autumn with its
:gold. There in their beauty
:continue on through all the
days of human sorrow. Man
:may understand what causes
:these changes, but the why
may be lost on most of us.


We sometimes may think
that nature has no time to
stop for mankind's stern
battle for existence. Yet
surely it is better so! Our
tears and strife and storms
are transient, while the order
of creation will let us have a
glimpse of that "new heaven
and earth" for which the be-
lievers wait. These flowers at
the foot of the Cross, have
blossomed at the foot of ev-
ery cross since His.

SEEDS

;"" SOWER


A thief broke into a shoe
store, stole the shoes out
of the boxes, and put the
boxes back in place. When
the customers came in to
be served, the clerks
pulled out box after box,
only to find them empty.
Life for so many is like
those shoe boxes-empty!
"I have everything to live
with," cried a young man,
"but nothing to live for.
Life is empty." W hat
seemed sweet became bit-
ter. His lust became dis-
gust. His drugs became de-
spair. Do you want a life
that's full, free and fasci-
nating? Look to the Lord.
He said, "My purpose is to
give life in all its fullness."

The moment you start to resent a person you become their
slave.
They control your dreams, absorb your digestion, rob
you of peace of mind and good will, and take away the
pleasure of your work.
They ruin your spirituality and nullify your prayers.
You cannot take a vacation without them going along!
They destroy your freedom of mind and hound you
wherever you go.
There is no way to escape the person you resent.
They are with you when you are awake. They invade
your privacy when you sleep. They are close beside you
when you eat, when you drive your car, and when you
are on the job.
You can never have efficiency or happiness. They in-
fluence even the tone of your voice. They require you to
take medicine for.indigestion, headaches and loss of en-
ergy.
They even steal your last moment of
consciousness before you go to sleep. So if you want to be
a slave, harbor your resentments.

Freeport girls


upend Baker 58-55


By PATRICK CASEY
Nicole Dykes converted a
basket and free throw with
ten seconds left in the game
to lead the Freeport Bulldogs
to a 58-55 win over the Baker
Gators in a District 1, Class
2A contest. Dykes, who tal-
lied 17 points on the night,
was perfect at the line as she
canned 9-of-9 free throws to
help the Lady Bulldogs to
their first win over Baker
since Janaury 7, 1999.
Playing almost eight years
to the day of their last win
over Baker, Freeport rallied
from a nine-point first half
deficit to tie the game at 25-
25 heading into intermission.
Kaycee Jones provided a
spark in the second half as
she scored 10 of her 13 points
in the final 16 minutes of the
contest to help Freeport stay
within a basket of the Gators
most of the fourth quarter.
Jessica Baker added 11
points for Freeport, who
looked like they were going to
lose their thirteenth straight
game to Baker after Chelsea
Combest scored 20 point for
the Gators, including two
long three-point shots during
the fourth quarter.
Freeport would not give
up, as they tied the score with
a minute to play, then set up
their final possession with 23
seconds left and the game
tied at 55-55.
Dykes drove the lane and


hit a critical basket from the
middle of the floor while be-
ing fouled to give Freeport the
58-55 lead. Baker's last gasp
at a tie ended with a missed
three-point shot as time ran
out on the Gators.
Freeport(9-8) now owns a
2-1 record in the district as
Baker fell to 9-4 overall.
"This was a big one," Free-
port coach Mike Myrick said
after the game. "Now if we
can get Jay the second time,
we should at least be tied for
first place in the district seed-
ing. The girls played with a
lot of heart and we hit 11-of-
12 shots from the free throw
line to get the win."
Game Notes: Freeport is
now 4-14 against Baker, dat- FRE
ing back to the 1997-98 sea- and th
son. The victory was Mike port we
Myrick's first against the
Baker Gators in his eight
years of coaching the squad.
Freeport lost both contests to
the Gators last season by 29
points in each game. Baker
won the junior varsity contest By CHi
37-16. Baker's Kendria Young
missed four free throws in the Jan. 8
fourth quarter that could
have helped Baker grab the Girls -
win. Young finished with 11 Freep
points, but only 2-of-6 shoot- Nicole
ing from the line. Freeport Bulldog

PDL boys grab district win


By PATRICK CASEY
The Ponce de Leon Pirates
improved to 5-0 in District 2,
Class 2A with a 78-62 victory
over tle Vernon
Yellowjackets on Friday
night.
Cody Carroll scored 22
points and Jesse Paulk added
20 as the Pirates improved to
11-5 on the regular season.
Paulk was deadly from the
outside as he canned five 3-
point shots for the Pirates.
PDL hit ten 3-pointers in the
contest as they held Vernon
to a double-digit deficit the
entire second half.
Vernon, which is now
coached by former Walton
coach Gordon Brock,
struggled from the free throw


line as they hit only 3-of-15
shots from the charity stripe.
Vernon also struggled on de-
fense, as the Pirates shot the
ball extremely well from the
floor (28-of-61 shooting) and
got 16 points from Dylan
Skinner on short put-back
shots. PDL helped their cause
with 12-of-15 free throw
shooting as well.
Vernon got 17 points from
Gavin Brown and 16 from
Patrick Coleman, but never
could slow 'down the Pirates
offense. Vernon had dropped
the earlier meeting between
the two teams in Vernon 65-
56 on December 19.
Game Notes: PDL is now
8-5 against Vernon in the last
13 meetings. Vernon swept


both games last season, with
PDL returning the favor this
year. PDL will play their fi-
nal district regular season
game on Friday, Janaury 19
in Cottondale. The Pirates
will likely be the #1-seed in
the district tournament re-
gardless of whether they win
or lose to the Hornets. PDL
has seen a drastic turn-
around from last season,
when the boys program went
7-18. Several of the Pirates
players have been nursing
ankle sprains, but the inju-
ries did not slow down a solid
offensive performance by the
home team. Stacy Stafford is
in his third season as head
coach and has a'record of 39-
32 at the school.

Walton sinks Seahawks 35-21


By PATRICK CASEY
LaRel Jackson scored 12
points and Walton survived
two quarters of slow-down
play by the Seahawks to
claim a 35-21 victory on the
road.,
Walton held an 18-12 lead
when South Walton Head
Coach Mark Cozzie decided to
take the air out of the ball by
having guard Joseph
Williamson hold the ball just
across the timeline and bleed
the clock down in the second
quarter. Walton allowed the
Seahawks to bilk more than
five minutes of playing time
while holding a six-point half-
time lead.
South Walton (4-12) em-
ployed the same strategy in
the third quarter, only to have


Walton steal the ball and hit
a three-point shot from Dylan
Laird to increase the lead to
21-12 after three quarters of
play.
The Seahawks opened up
the offense in the final period,
but were outscored by Walton
14-9 in the final stanza to
record the 35-21 win. Walton
(12-4) earns a sweep of the
season series and remains
undefeated in District 1,
Class 3A heading into
Friday's game with Pensacola
Catholic.
Chris Davies led the way
for the Seahawks with nine
points.
Game Notes: Walton is 9-0
against South Walton in four
years of boys basketball com-
petition. South Walton has


never beaten another Walton
County varsity team in boys
basketball in a regular sea-
son game. Mark Cozzie is 20-
78 in his fourth season as.
head coach for South Walton.
Walton won the junior varsity
contest 32-27. Walton did not
attempt a free throw in the
contest.

Some fans were not happy
with the stall tactic, mainly
Walton fans, though the
Braves handled the slow pace
well enough to get the win.
The closest game in the series
was the December 12 contest
earlier this season that saw
Walton take a 58-48 home vic-
tory. Jerry Hester is 81-41 as
the Braves head coach in his
fifth year at the helm.


Players leave school, head for NFL


By CHUCK HINSON
It seems that Florida just
had enough time to get home
and celebrate their national
championship win over Ohio
State, before the phones
started ringing and players
began to hit the NFL draft
like flies to honey. The
Florida Gators had All-
American safety Reggie
Nelson and defensive end
Jarvis Moss confirm this past
Saturday that they will be-
come eligible for the NFL
draft and will be leaving the
school.
Nelson, who racked up six
interceptions this year for the
Gators and had several
touchdowns, said he wanted
to wait for the team's celebra-
tion to sink in before he
made the move.
Florida receiver Andre
Caldwell will return for an-
other season with the Gators,
but word of whether or not
cornerback Ryan Smith and
linebacker Brandon Siler
have been accepted into the
draft, still has had no confir-
mation.
But the list of NCAA play-
ers does not just affect
Florida. Other teams learned
of their players' hopeful NFL
jump to the April draft, this
past weekend, as well.
USC's leading receiver in
the school's history, Dwayne
Jarrett, has made his inten-
tions known that he will be
skipping his senior season at
Southern Cal to pursue his
professional football career.
He racked up 216 catches


and a Pac-10 record 41 touch-
downs in his 38 games with
the Bruins.
The two-time All-American
suffered a shoulder injury
earlier in the season, but
came back to be a dramatic
player for the USC.
Ohio State's wide receiver
Anthony Gonzalez will also
not be putting on grey and
red next season as he has
decided to weigh his options
for the NFL draft inApril. He
is expected to go in the sec-
ond round of the draft.
Tailback andAll-American
Antonio Pittman and wide
receiver Ted Ginn, Jr., are
also expected to leave the
Buckeye program.
Joining the NFL hopefuls
will also be coming from the
midwest as Notre Dame's
tailback Darius Walker. He
was poised to be the schools'


all-time career rushing
leader, but will give it up to
play on Sundays, instead of
Saturday nights.
But to the shock and sur-
prise of most, despite many
officials saying it is just a
rumor, was the decision by
Lousiana State quarterback
JaMarcus Russell entering
the NFL. Many say that it)
was a rumor, but Russell was
told that he would probably
go in the first rounds of the
NFL draft.

At 6-foot-6, 257 pounds,
Russell was a presence on the
field in the quarterback po-
sition. He threw for 332
yards and two touchdowns at
the demolition of Notre
Dame in this past Sugar
Bowl and he was expected to
help guide the Tigers to a
solid SEC victory in 2007.

Maggie Wright scored all
eight of her points in overtime
as the Ponce de Leon Pirates
evened the season series with
the Cottondale Hornets with
a 51-39 decision.
The game was evenly
played for four quarters, but
the Pirates dominated the
overtime, outscoring
Cottondale 16-4 to improve to
15-4 on the season. The win
allowed PDL to avenge a 44-
43 loss to Cottondale last
month.
Lacey Griffin scored 14
points to lead the Pirates
while Tyla Yates tallied 10
points, all in the second quar-
ter when the Pirates were
struggling with foul trouble
for several of their starters.
Cottondale (14-5) used
their quickness to force 17
turnovers from the Pirates,
but struggled on the offensive
side where poor shooting


I*


doomed their attempt at a
road win..
SPDL led 23-18 at halftime,
only to see Cottondale rally.
to tie the game in the last few
minutes of the game. PDL
had a chance to win the game
at the buzzer, but a baseline
jumper by Tyla Yates was too
strong and flew over the bas-
ket as time expired. PDL had
no trouble in overtime as they
hit 5-of-6 free throws and
used a pair of crucial steals
to pull out the victory.
"They are awful quick,"
Coach Tim Alford said after
the game about Cottondale.
"Maggie (Wright) hit a big
three-pointer in the overtime
and we made our foul shots
to pull this one out. Tyla car-
ried us in the second quarter
while Lacey and Mary
(Howes) were on the bench in
foul trouble."
Game Notes: PDL is 9-2 in
the last 11 meetings with the


Hornets. PDL will almost as-
suredly face Cottondale in the
district championship game
at Panama City Bozeman on
Saturday, February 3. Both
Cottondale and PDL have
routed Vernon ,and P.C;
Bozeman in the regular sea-
son, the other two teams that
comprise District 2, Class 2A.
Only four players got into the
scoring column for.
Cottondale, led by sisters
Shaunte and Sherisa For-
ward, who combined for 31 of
Cottondale's 39 points. Chris
Obert, the Cottondale head
coach, is coaching both the
girls and boys varsity basket-
ball squads this season. Obert
is in his fifth year as head
coach, and played high school
ball at Cottondale. TimAlford.
is in his twelfth season as the
Pirates head coach. Alford's
record is 247-112 at the,
school.

By CHUCK HINSON
Despite the blowout that
"Florida handed Ohio State in
te national championship
-game last week, there would
be no further discussion
about the BCS bowls and the
final, "big game.". After
Florida's toppling of the
number one-ranked, perfect
12-0 season that the Buck-
eyes had coming into that
game, a clear national champ
had been determined.
But there are those teams
that say the system is still
not "glitch-free."
Whether college football.
fans like it or not, the BCS
committee said there would
be no changes to the system,
or no play-off games added
until the $320 million con-
tract with FOX Network
comes to a conclusion in
2010. At that time consider-
ation would be given to add
a mini-play-off format.
BCS coordinator and South
Eastern Conference commis-


sioner Mike Slive said that
he would be open to a play-
off system. But he told a
packed room of reporters last
week at the Football Writers
Association ofAmerica meet-
ing that a NFL-style play-off
season has no chance of hap-
pening anytime soon.
FOX Network is currently
in the first year of its four-
year contract with the BCS
and has the rights to carry
the Fiesta, Orange and
Sugar Bowls until 2010 and
the national game until 2009.
The BCS added a fifth game
this year as a national title
game, beyond and after the
four other established bowls
that include the Fiesta, Or-
ange and Sugar.
The Rose Bowl has its own
TV deal and contract with
ABC that runs through 2014.
The commissioners of the
NCAA Division I-A will meet
in March and June and the
discussion of adding another

ter will surely be a top sub-
ject.
Many have thought that
the commission and BCS
commissioner, Slive who is
also the SEC commissioner
- do not care about adding aA
other game since they have
already been established and
played for national titles.
Disgruntled fans, such as
those from Boise State who
boasted a perfect season
record, said since they are
not a Florida, a USC, Michi-
gan or Ohio State, they
would never get a chance to
play one of those teams since
they are not a television pow-
erhouse.
On one hand, someone
could understand the reason
why the BCS would overlook
a school like Rutgers, Boise
State, Louisville and other
teams that have just recently
become one of the elite play-
ing schools and their smaller

By DOTTYNIST
Over 2 1/2 years after be-
ing approved by the U.S.
Army Corps of Engineers, an
agreement affecting wet-
lands on 48,150 acres in Wal-
ton and Bay counties is still
a source of controversy in the
community.
However, as the result of
a Nov. 2006 court decision, a
previously existing injunc-
tion on the plan has been
lifted. The agreement,
known as a Regional General
Permit (RGP,i is now in force.
providing for the permitting
of wetlands within the speci-
fied area, pending an appeal
by the Florida Sierra Club.
In Florida, both the U.S.


Army Corps of Engineers
and the state Department of
Environmental Protection
IDEP,) are regulatory au-
thorities for filling and other
work in wetlands.
In fall 2006, a settlement
agreement ended challenges
that had been raised by the
Sierra Club and area citizen
organizations against a DEP
wetlands plan affecting ap-
proximately 31,500 acres
owned by the St. Joe Com-
pany within the same area.
That plan, known as the Eco-
system Management Agree-
ment, has been described as
DEP's "companion .agree-
ment" to the Army Corps
RGP.


Developed in a series of
meetings between Army
Corps officials, the St. Joe
Company, and other parties.
the RGP was approved to
streamline Corps permitting
for work on wetlands con-
tained in -a 48,150-acre Wal-
ton/Bay County area within
which development was con-
templated. Not all but over
three-quarters of that acre-
age is under St. Joe Com-
pany ownership.
Proponents proclaimed
the RGP as a cohesive, erivi-
ronmentally sound approach
-to wetland permitting as op-
posed to a less productive

Planning commission ponders lights, Red Fish gateway


By LEAH STRATMANN
For more than a year, a
volunteer committee, under
the direction of the Board of
County Commissioners
(BCC) has been working on
drafting a lighting ordinance,
which will spell out lighting
for developments and com-
mercial property. At the last
meeting of the planning com-
mission, the chairman of that
committee, Matthew Avery
with CHELCO, presented'
the draft to the commission-
ers.
The ordinance does not
deal with any issues regard-
ing turtles. The new ordi-
nance will be complaint


driven with guidelines for
convenience stores and to
keep floodlights from being
directed toward roadways. It
was noted that people have
five-and-a-half years to com-
ply with the ordinance.
Robert Larson with the
Shoal Sanctuary addressed
the commission saying, "We
can save the night sky. The
night sky at Shoal is compa-
rable to night skies in New
Mexico. Walton County has
an obligation to save the
night sky," he said. Larson
brought with him the draft
ordinance with comments
and refinements he felt
should be made to the ordi-


nance.
Commissioner Tom Patton
made a motion to continue
the vote on accepting the
draft ordinance until the
comments.from the Shoal
Sanctuary could be reviewed.
The motion was passed by all
with a date certain of Feb. 8.
One agenda item drawing
a number of citizen com-
ments was a proposal called
Redfish Village Gateway. Les
Porterfield as engineer for
the applicant requested ap-
proval of a major develop-
ment consisting of a restroom
and pavilion on .63 acres lo-'
cated three lots west of CR-
83 and Blue Mountain Road,


on the south side of Blue
Mountain Road.
County planner Jason
Bryan said the project is con-
sistent with the comprehen-
sive plan and the land devel-
opment code (LDC). He noted
the project does not meet
transportation guidelines,
but the applicant has asked
to pay impact fees.
Attorney George Miller on
behalf of the applicant noted
the proposed beach access
will provide access only for.
residents of an 80-unit devel-
opment nearby The pavilion
will replace an existing du-
plex. "The Blue Mountain
Beach access has been over-


whelmed. This access will be
dedicated to the Redfish Vil-
lage residents' use only,
which will lessen traffic on
the public access.
Pat Tylka, who lives near
the proposed project, ex-
pressed concern about park-
ing and congestion on CR-
383.
He asked the commission
not to approve the project.
Chris Lennox,, who lives
across the street from the
proposed project, echoed
Tylka's concerns, saying the
sidewalk is not connected all
the way to the site of the ac-
cess andparking is definitely
an issue.


Miller countered by saying
they plan to run a shuttle
from Redfish Village to the
beach access and that the
project meets a civic need by
providing bathrooms and
showers. The developers

Committee to develop


beach activity rule changes


BYDOTTYNIST
Due to controversy over
proposed changes to the Wal-
ton County Beach Activity
Ordinance, a second sched-
uled public hearing has been
cancelled. Instead, the Wal-
ton County Commissioners
are seeking interested volun-
teers to serve on a commit-
tee that will develop recom-
merdations to update the
county beach ordinance.
A major point of contention
at the initial (Jan. 9) hearing
was a proposed change that
would have closed to driving
a 600-foot-long area of beach
adjacent to the 66-foot-wide
beach access and boat launch
area at Lakeshore Drive in
Inlet Beach.
This area at Inlet Beach
and one at Grayton Beach
are the only places where
driving on the beach is legal
in Walton County. A county
vehicle permit is required.
Assistant County Adminis-
trator Shirl Williams ex-
plained the reason for the
closing of the beach driving
area in Inlet Beach as being
due to the beach being eroded
back to the property line in
that segment, so that any
driving would be on private
property.
"We're losing our rights on
the beach," 21-year Inlet
Beach resident Valerie
Simmons warned in object-
ing to the change.
Simmons pointed out that
driving on the beach may be
the only means of access for


older residents who are mo-
bility challenged.
She did not believe that the
closing of the section to driv-
ing was appropriate, given
that the only request to do so
had come from the owner of
beachfront property in that
section.
"We own all the way to the
Gulf of Mexico," the property
owner countered.
He complained of people
parking their vehicles close
to his home, driving over the
dunes and sea oats, and par-
tying on the beach next to his
house.
"We've had young children
almost get run over. It's a bad
situation," he said.
District 1 Commissioner
Scott Brannon was aware of
a previous county commis-
sion voting to close the sec-
tion to driving but noted that
the vote had not resulted in
that change being made in
the beach ordinance.
The commissioners di-
rected county legal services
and staff to research that
situation and report back
with information..
Former county commis-
sioner Van Ness Butler,
whose family had sold to the
state the Grayton Beach
property now under lease to
the county for beach driving,
called for "a good hard look
at our beach laws."
He warned that the county
is liable for any accidents on
the beach driving area as a
condition of the lease.


With close to 1,000 beach
vehicle permits issued, But-
ler warned that.any increase
in beach driving would surely
result in someone getting
hurt, possibly a child.
Among other proposed
changes to the ordinance was
a requirement that, beach
chairs, umbrellas, tents and
other personal articles be re-
moved from the beach at
night to prevent interference
with sea'turtle nesting,
beach maintenance or emer-
gency vehicle access.
Beachfront property owner
Ed Goodwin was worried
that this change would pro-
hibit him from pulling his
-boat off the beach and stor-
ing it adjacent to his home.

Following comments and
concerns expressed by sev-
eral other citizens regarding
the proposals, the commis-
sioners voted unanimously to
cancel the second public
hearing on the proposed
changes, which had previ-
ously been set for Feb. 27 at
the South Walton County
Courthouse Annex.
Instead, following up on a
suggestion by County Com-
mission Chairman Ken
Pridgen, they opted to direct
Williams to set up a commit-
tee, to include Butler and
other concerned citizen vol-
unteers, to develop alterna-
tive recommendations for
changes to the ordinance. All
interested persons will be
encouraged to participate.


2006 LIFEGUARD TRAINING'in Santa Rosa Beach.



Walton County lifeguard


service contract renewed


By DOTTY NIST
The contract for the first
county-provided lifeguard
services on Walton County's
beaches has been renewed
through fall 2009.

On Jan. 9, The Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC) voted
unanimously to renew the
South Walton Fire District's
contract to provide these ser-
vices for an additional three
years. The approval was at
the request of Sonny Mares


of the South Walton Tourist
Development Council ITDC).
The lifeguard services are
funded through tourist bed
tax revenues collected by the
TDC.
In the 2006 pilot lifeguard
program, life saving services
were provided at six public
beach accesses, Miramar
Beach, Ed Walline Park,
Gulfview Heights, Dune
Allen Beach, Bramble Grove,
and Inlet Beach, during the
March-September swimming
season.


Under the terms of the
contract, the fire district will
be compensated $560,000 per
year to provide these services
at the six accesses, with the
possibility of the addition of
a seventh location with no in-
crease in that price.
There is consideration
that additional beach access
locations may be included in
the program, and, if so, the
approved contract allows for
negotiations with the fire dis-
trict to increase the yearly
compensation amount.

Lions Club presidents do lunch


A few years ago, a group of
past presidents of the
Sandestin Lions Club de-

ous restaurants or cafes on
no planned schedule.

PLANNING

opers to determine where the
beach accesses are. For this
one project, it is probably OK,
but in a broader sense you are
opening up the whole 26-mile
coastline for people to sell
their property to private de-
velopers for beach access," he
stated.
Rosemary Beach town
manager Jim Bagby said,
"the county needs to look for
more public and private part-
nerships for beach access.
This is a positive thing as it
keeps a low impact beach ac-
cess open. This is not a bad
preceAlbert Gamble com-
mented, "Redfish Village
Condos are not a waterfront
condos. The building of the.
beach access is an attempt to
make it waterfront. Shifting
the impact and density from
where the condo is to the
beach side. You could other-
wise not put that kind of den-
sity on this property." Gamble
cited the technical review
committee report, which
called the pavilion an ame-
nity for an existing subdivi-
sion.
"Redfish Village is not an
existing subdivison...this
project will adversely affect
the surrounding neighbor-
hoods and each one around it
opposes it. Redfish Village
made promises to those who
.bought property that they
would be given private beach


FROM FRONT

access and this is being done
to meet contract obligations.
The comprehensive plan is
supposed to consider compat-
ibility and the LDC says non-
residential uses are not al-
lowed. We ask the commis-
sion to consider the issues of
compatibility, ask them to re-
view the statements made
today, and ask that compat-
ibility issues be enforced," he
concluded.
Mark Doherty commented.
the weekly rentals at Redfish
Village make it commercial
and the beach access would
therefore be commercial.
Commissioner Randy Gar-
dener said. "If the, planning
department says a project
meets the code, I rely on that.
Then I listen to public com-
ments and try to apply logic.'
In this case the applicant is
giving beach,iot generating
additional traffic, a donation
of $50K to the WCTDC, and
so I think presenting trade
offs, which benefit the public.
Commissioner Tom Patton
said the people living at Red-
fish need to be told that they
are not to drive their cars to
the beach, they either walk,
bike, or take the shuttle.
A motion. was made to ap-.
prove the project provided the
developers notify condo rent-
ers they have no parking
privileges at the access at all.
The motion was passed by all.

auditions for 2007 season


The Seaside Repertory
Theatre, Northwest Florida's
premier professional theatre
company will.hold local au-
ditions for its upcoming sea-
son on Monday,,Jan. 29, from
7-9 pm. in the Meeting Hall
Theatre at 215 Quincy Cirqle
in Seaside.
This is the first time in its
seven year history that the
Rep will hold an organized
audition for local actors,
though local actors have been
frequently hired for their pro-
ductions over the years.
The Rep is looking for ac-
tors of all ages and experi-
ence levels for its 2007 Sea-
son, which includes The Last
Five Years, a musical by Ja-
son Robert Brown that will
run in March and April,
Steve Martin's The Under-
pants, the family production
of Beauty and the Beast, Tom
Stoppard's The Real Thing,
the holiday comedy, A Tuna
Christmas, and other smaller


productions.
Those wanting to audition
may either prepare a contem-
porary monologue less than
two minutes long of their own
choosing, or choose a selec-
tion of audition pieces pro-
vided bythe Rep.
Singers wishing to audition
may sing a selection less than
one minute long, but they
must bring in their own re-
corded music on CD or mp3
player.
Rep Artistic Director
Craige Hoover says the local
auditions are being held due
to the feedback from local tal-
ent who wish to be involved
in the theatre's operations.
Historically, the Rep has
cast nationally at the Unified
Professional Theatre Audi-

set but will be publicly announced.


Two new projects approved

by the board for south Walton


At the last meeting of the
Walton County planning com-
mission, two' developments
were passed by the board
with a minimum of citizen
commentary.

Norman Azar and Jenkins,
Stanford and Associates, Inc.
as the engineer of record
sought approval of a major
development, known as
Osprey Bay Retreat and for-
merly called Azar Village, to
construct 24 units on 4.64
acres of land located north-
west of the intersection of
Chat Holly Road and Osprey
Lane.
Speaking for the county,
Jason Bryan said the county
found the project to be consis-
tent with the land develop-
ment code (LDC) provided the
applicant participated in
sidewalk buyout, paid all fees
and changed the front set-
backs to a distance of 15-feet.
Speaking on behalf of the
developer, Scott Jenkins said
the developer is attempting to
save as many trees as pos-
sible and noted the project
will be in two phases and the
developer planned to pave the
road on the northern bound-
ary of the property. The road
will be platted as a public ac-
cess road. Jenkins noted that
at this point, the project is a
conceptual planned urban de-
velopment (PUD).
Mark Doherty, who lives
in the area, was concerned
about property recently ac-


quired by the developers. The
property in question provides
Doherty's only access in and
out of his property. He also to
see plans for the drainage
systems, which could affect
adjacent properties.
SDavid Kramer addressed
the commission asking if
there were any commercial
elements in either phase of
the PUD. Jenkins assured
him the project was strictly
residential.
Commissioner Tom Terrell
made a motion to approve the
project and all passed the
motion.
The final agenda item was
a project known as Abacos II,
a major development consist-
ing of 69,528 square feet of
mixed-use commercial build-
ing to include 9,155 square
feet of retail space and 19 con-
dominiums on 1.63 acres of
land located at the northeast
corner of CR-393 and CR-
30A.
Tim Brown, county plan-
ner, said the project meets the
minimum technical code as
well as the LDC. Brown noted
the developer would have
been required to put in a side-
walk, but instead will put in
a bike path on the west side
of CR-393, which is across the
street from the project, and
take advantage of the side-
walk buyout for the west side
of the property.
A motion was made to ap-
prove the project and all
passed the motion.

It is time once
again for the revelry,
the floats and beads,
beads and more
beads. Mardi Gras
season has returned
for another year and
events get kicked off
this weekend in both
Mobile and New Or-
leans.


From over-the-top floats to
beads by the tons, Mardi
Gras hits the nation with a
vengeance and millions will
invade port cities around the


South.
For years, Mardi Gras has
been a time to revel in the
good times, dine on Cajun
food, catch beads from pass-
ing floats and for some, dive
into cups and bottles of spir-
its for days on end. Despite
the pageantry and pomp and
circumstance of each parade
and krewe in Mardi Gras, it
is still the parties and the "do
what feels good" attitude that
overshadow every other as-
pect of every other event.
Beginning this weekend,
Mobile and New Orleans roll
out the red carpet and adorn
their masks as they celebrate
the most famous city celebra-
tions in the world.
The following is a schedule


KING REX WILL roll throughout the streets of New Orleans
on Fat Tuesday to officially welcome and soon close the fes-
tivities for another year. Mardi Gras is taking place in city until
Feb. 20.


of parades for both cities.

celebrate Mardi Gras and
has continuously celebrated
the event for over 100 years.

The city of New Orleans
had become known for its rev-
elry and loose laws during the
Mardi Gras celebrations.
Since Hurricane Katrina hit
in August of 2005, the celebra-
tion and parades were very
limited in 2006. Now the city
is back on its feet and this
year's celebration is expected
to be the most highly at-
tended Mardi Gras in history.

ENVIRONMENT AND NOTICE TO
PUBLIC OF REQUEST FOR
RELEASE OF FUNDS

City of Freeport
112 Highway 20 West
Freeport, FL 32439
850-835-3137

TO ALL INTERESTED AGENCIES,
GROUPS, AND PERSONS:

On or about February 5, 2007, the
above-named City will request the De-
partment of Community Affairs, des-
ignated by the U.S. Department of
Housing & Urban Development, to re-
move the environmental conditions
and release Federal funds under Title
1 of the Housing and Community De-.
velopment Act of 1974 (PL93-383), as
revised, for the following project: City
of Freeport CDBG Neighborhood Re-
vitalization Project #07DB-3R-01-76-
02-N01.
Program activities will cost approxi-
mately $692,500 and will include the
following activities:
1. Administration
S 2. Engineering
3. Construction of 5076LF of sewer
collection line and the connection of
approximately 20 homes in the Mal-
lard Creek Road community:
4. The construction of a small com-
munity park adjacent to Eucheeana
Road including the renovation of the
proposed community center building:
It has been determined that such
request for removal of environmental
conditions will not constitute an action
significantly affecting the quality of the
human environment; accordingly the
above-named recipient has decided
not to prepare an Environmental Im-
pact Statement under the National En-
vironmental Policy Act of 1969 (PL91-
190).
The decision not to prepare such
Statement was based on the follow-
ing:
1. Identification of existing environ-.
mental conditions and trends which
are likely to occur without implemen-
tation of the proposed project.
2. Identification of the nature, mag-
nitude and extent of all environmental
impacts associated with the project,
whether beneficial or adverse.
3. Examination of the project and
consideration given to ways in which
the project could be modified in order
to eliminate or,minimize any adverse.
environmental effects and enhance
environmental quality including modi-
fications in relation to design, use, lo-
cation, cost and timing of the proposed
project and its implementation.
4. Examination of alternatives to
the project itself which would eliminate
or minimize environmental impacts or
enhance environmental quality as well
as the effect of not carrying out the pro-
posed program activities.
An Environmental Review Record
respecting this project has been made
by the above named jurisdiction which
documents the environmental review
of the proposed activities and more
fully sets forth the reasons why such
SStatement is not required. The Envi-
ronmental Review Record is on file at
the Freeport City Hall, 112 Highway
20 West, Freeport, FL 32439 (850-
835-3137), and is available for public
examination and copying, upon re-
quest, between the hours of 9:00 AM
to 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.

No further environmental review of
said project is proposed to be con-
ducted prior to the request for removal
of environmental conditions.

All interested agencies, groups and
persons disagreeing with this decision
are invited to submit written comments
for consideration by the jurisdiction to
the above referenced address. Such
written comments should be received
by the jurisdiction on or before Febru-
ary 2, 2007 in order to be considered.
All such comments so received will be
considered and the jurisdiction will not
"request the release" of Federal Funds
or take any administrative action on
the referenced project 'prior to the
dates specified in the preceding sen-
tence.
The recipient will undertake this
project with Community Development
Block Grant funds from U.S. Depart-
ment of Housing and Urban Develop-
ment (HUD) under Title 1 of the Hous-
ing and Community Development Act
of 1974 through the State of Florida:
The above referenced jurisdiction is
certifying to DCA that its environmen-
tal certifying officer identified below, in
the official capacity as Mayor, consent
to accept the jurisdiction of the Fed-
eral Courts reviews, decision-making
and action, that these responsibilities
have been satisfied. The legal effect
of the certification is that upon its ap-


proval, said jurisdiction may use the
Community Development Block Grant
funds, and HUD will have satisfied its
responsibility under the National En-
vironmental Policy Act of 1969. DCA
will accept an objection to its approval
of the release of funds and acceptance
of the certification only if it is on one of
the following bases:
1. That the certification was not in
-fact executed by the Chief Executive
Officer or other officer of the jurisdic-
tion as approved by the State of
Florida.
2. That the jurisdiction's Environ-
mental Review Record for the project
indicates omission of a required deci-
sion, finding, or step applicable to the
project in the environmental review
process.
Objections must be prepared and
submitted in accordance with the re-
quired procedure (24 CFR Part 58)

The Child Advocate
By JULIE HURST
Executive Director
Emerald Coast Children's Advocacy Center

Happy New Year! We hope the new year bring much joy
and happiness to each and every one of you. With a new
year, we all take time to reflect on the year past and begin to
plan for the new by setting new goals and aspirations. At
the Emerald Coast Children's Advocacy Center, we have done
just that as well. Over the past year, we managed more than
1,500 case of child physical and sexual abuse in Okaloosa
and Walton Counties and provided more than 3,000 services.
We have truly made a difference in the lives of so many chil-
dren and will continue to do so in the coming year. At the
Center, we hope this year to continue to build on those ser-
vices and continue to reach out to the community on child
abuse related issues. We again thank Ron Kelley for giving
us one of those avenues to reach out.
Over the past week, we all have seen the news account of
an 11 year old child who was missing in.Missouri. He had
gotten off his school bus as he had every day. He never made
it home. One of his friends was able to identify a truck near
the location of the boys home and school bus. This observa-
tion and two very intuitive police officers led authorities to
find this young boy and also another boy who had been miss-
ing for four years. This was a very happy ending to what
could have been a very tragic ending.

It seems like an appropriate time to remind parents to
talk to their children about safety regardless of their age.
Don't forget the'older children. Children age 11 to 17 are
equally at risk to victimization. At the same time you are
giving older children more freedom, make sure they under-
stand important safety rules as well. Teach your child to tell
you if they feel scared, uncomfortable, or confused. Let them
know there will always be someone to help them and they
have the right to be safe: Teach your children not to go out
alone (regardless of their age) when going out places like to
play, to the mall. Practice what you preach. You may think
you children understand your message, but until they can
incorporate it into their daily lives, it may not be clearly
understood. Find opportunities to practice "what if" scenarios.
It is important to remember that although stranger abduc-
tions do occur as in Missouri children are more likely to be
harmed by someone they know so do not concentrate on
stranger danger. Children should be comfortable talking to
their parents regardless if the person is a stranger or some-
one they know.
After reading this article, take a moment and talk to your
child. You can go online to National Center for Missing &
Exploited Children to review this information and much more
pertaining to safety of our children. As parents, we all have
the responsibility to take care of our child. As a member of
the community, we have a responsibility to look after the
children in our community. As always, if you know of or sus-
pect child abuse, please contact the Florida Abuse Hotline
at 1-800-96-ABUSE.
Keep your children safe...


A message from the Emerald Coast Association of REALTORS



It's a great time


to buy a home.


PERMIT
FROM FRONT
"piecemeal" approach that
would take place in its ab-
sence through individual fill
permits.
Critics have called the
RGP "assembly-line environ-
mental permitting" and have
warned that it would inordi-
nately cut down on review of
individual projects and pub-
lic notification prior to ap-
proval of projects.
The RGP provides for de-
velopment to occur on a
maximum of 30 percent of
the 48,150 acres, with a
maximum of between 1,500
and 2,000 acres of wetlands
in the permit area to be filled.
A legal challenge by the
Sierra Club resulted in a Nov.
2005 injunction by the U.S.
District Court in Jackson-
ville. on permitting through
the RGP, after the group had
requested urgency due to
concern over "severe nega-
tive impacts on Lake Powell."
This coastal dune lake bor-
ders the St. Joe Company's
WaterSound North develop-
ment site in southeastern
Walton County.
A year later, the St. Joe
Company announced victory,
with a decision by the same
federal court upholding the
RGP and lifting the injunc-
tion.
"We believe that the court


made the wise and correct
decision today in vacating
the preliminary injunction,
rejecting the legal challenge
and allowing the RGP to pro-
ceed as planned," commented
St. Joe Company CEO/chair-
man Peter S. Rummel on the
occasion of the Nov. 2006 de-
cision.
"We believe the planning
framework implemented
with this permit, which goes
well beyond customary regu-
latory requirements, pro-
vides permanent protection
for some of the most environ-
mentally sensitive areas in
Northwest Florida," Rummel
further stated.
On Jan. 2, 2007, the
Florida Chapter of the Sierra
Club filed a notice of appeal
of the latter decision in fed-
eral court, with Lesley
Blackner, Sierra Club attor-
ney, calling the ruling "a dan-
gerous corruption of the
Clean Water Act."
"It creates precedents that
severely weaken wetland
protection at a time when
loss of their functions is hav-
ing serious environmental
consequences in Florida and
the nation," Blackner added.
Pending a decision on the
appeal, St. Joe Company
projects are being permitted
in connection with the RGP,
including road and school
projects in Bay County, ac-
cording to Army Corps offi-
cial Don Hambrick.


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


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 price-s to increase next year.


POSITIVE OUTLOOK


4_W 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 record for home sales.3

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
