Scottish

Tartans

Museum To

exhibit at

Assembly
"What's. My Tartan"?
That's the question that gets
asked most often at the
Scottish Tartans Museum,
located in Franklin, NC. For
many, the answer will be a
clan tartan based on the
history of that particular
surname. For others, it will
be a district tartan that
represents the region where
the name originated. For
many names, more than one
tartan may be appropriate to
wear. The Scottish Tartans
Museum has hundreds of
sample tartan swatches
available, including all of the
major Scottish clans.
Scottish descendants who
would like to know what their
tartan looks like should visit
the Scottish Tartans Museum
exhibit at the Chautauqua
Hall of Brotherhood during
the hours of 9 am 5 pm on
Friday or Saturday during
the 2007 Florida Chautauqua
Assembly in DeFuniak
Springs, FL. The Scottish
Tartan Museum's Curator,
Matthew A. C. Newsome will
be happy to help identify
Scottish clan tartans and
answer any questions about
tartans, kilts, or Scottish
Highland attire.
The Scottish Tartans
Museum wasfounded by The
Scottish Tartans Society in
Scotland in 1963 to create
and maintain the Register of
All Publicly Known Tartans,
encourage research into
Highland Dress, and to
provide a design service for
new tartans.
Matthew A.C. Newsome,
curator of the museum, is a
FSA Scot and member of the
Guild of Tartan Scholars. He
writes a monthly column for
the Scottish Banner
newspaper on Highland
dress and is available most
week days at the museum to
answer questions and give
tartan advice. He also
travels to various Highland
Games and Scottish Festivals
throughout the southeastern
US where he gives talks'on
the historic dress of the
Scottish people.

Duck hunters


respond to Juniper


Lake complaints


By BRUCE COLLIER
"This is all about me and
my cousin." said Brandon
Carroll, speaking of himself
and Ryan Phillips, both duck
hunters.
The two have lately found
themselves in a series of con-
frontations with residents
and property owners around
Juniper Lake, where they
have duck-hunted for some
time.

WRECK.AGE FROM ONE OF THREE fltal accicdtints on January 17. This collision took
place on Hwy. 81.


Fatal Wednesday

Three traffic accidents


claim four lives in Walton


By BRUCE COLLIER
Wednesday, January 17, proved a fatal
day for four Walton County motorists. Three
accidents, two before noon and one in the
early afternoon, claimed the.lives of four
,people.
The first accident took place at 6:35 a.m.
on Hwy. 331. A pickup truck driven by Mat-
thew Montgomery, 19, ofDeFuniak Springs,
collided head-on with a dump truck, driven
by John Williford, 24, of.Santa Rosa Beach.
Montgomery was pronounced dead on the
scene, while Williford was treated for minor
injuries and released. Traffic on Hwy. 331
was held up and slowed down for hours fol-
lowing the accident.

The second collision occurred on Hwy. 285
about four hours later. A truck driven by
TimothyAnderson, 37, ofDeFuniak Springs,
collided.head-on with a freightliner, driven
by Keith Mumford, 42, of Fort Walton Beach.
Mumford was not injured. Anderson subse-
quently died of his injuries at North


Okaloosa Medical Center in Grestview.
At around 120 p.m., a third fatality took
place on Hwy. 81. south of Ponce de Leon.
Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) investigator
Cpl. Donna Stewart reported that two ve-
hicles, were approaching each other, travel-
ing in opposite directions.
The northbound vehicle was a sedan
driven by Myra Byrd, 51, of Crestview. The
southbound vehicle was a truck driven by
Kenneth Hall, 44. Stewart said that one ve-
hicle appeared to have crossed over the cen-
ter line, causing the third head-on collision
of the day.
Hall was pronounced dead on the scene,
and Byrd died shortly thereafter at
Healthmark Hospital in DeFuniak Springs.
This brought the total to four deaths, on three
different roads, over a period of seven hours..
The FHP investigation is still pending, but
an FHP spokesman observed that the crashes
may have been the result of driversnot pay-
ing attention and drifting into the oncoming
lane of traffic. All three roads are two-lane.

Out of field, in the classroom


By PATRICK CASEY
Sonny Nolin, director of
Personnel for the Walton
County School District, pre-,
sented the school board with
a list of teachers who teach
out-of-field subjects on Jan.
16. The list includes 115
teachers, mainly that fall
into the ESOL category,
which means they cold have
one student that speaks a
language other than English
in their classroom or for one
block of the subject that a
teacher teaches. This is the
case for 77 of the 115 teach-
ers on the list. Teachers have
only two ways to become
ESOL certified. They must
attain a degree in applied lin-
guistics or take and pass the
Florida Teacher Certification
Exam in ESOL. Many of the
county's teachers are in the
process of doing so.
Florida Statute requires


that teachers be approved by
the Walton County School
Board to teach a subject for
which they do not have cer-
tification. "We have more
teachers certified and en-
dorsed than we use to, but
the population of ESOL stu-
dents is growing so the more
teachers that get the certifi-
cation helps as our student
population grows," Superin-
tendent Carlene Anderson
noted.
Tracey Dickey, principal at
Freeport Elementary School
and chair of the calendar
committee, presented the
Walton County School Board
with a tentative school
schedule for 2007-08. Teach-
ers will return to work on
August 13, 2007, with stu-
dents attending their first
day of classes on August 20.
Students will still be re-
quired to attend the state-


mandated 180 days, and will
see the school year come to
an end June 11, 2008. The
proposed calendar included
more four-day weekend
breaks for students and
teachers. Local high school
graduations will be in early
June instead of mid-May, as
has been the trend for the
last decade. The Florida Leg-
islature passed a bill in the
fall of 2006 setting the start
of school no earlier than 14
days before Labor Day, shift-
ing the start of school in 2007
back a couple of weeks in
most Florida school districts
come this August.
"The calendar we have
proposed will not affect in-
surance benefits. or salaries
for August, which was a con-
cern with a later start,"
Dickey told the board.

iff, and reminded her that he
has a license to hunt ducks.
On another occasion, a
man insisted on staying arid
trying to shoo away any
ducks that came near the
hunters.
Carroll flatly denies using:
cherry bombs or any other
fireworks to move ducks, ob-
serving that such noisemak-
ers would simply scare offall
the ducks. ;
Carroll said that the"ha-:


"I have been harassed beyond be-
ing harassed."- Brandon Carroll.


tured an article on concerns
expressed by certain Juniper
Lake residents over duck
hunting and the alleged
problem caused by hunters
firing shots near homes and
nesting wildfowl, including
several protected species.
Carroll read the article,
and felt compelled to tell his
side of the story.
"I have been harassed be-
yond being harassed," said,
Carroll. Both he and Phillips
have purchased all necessary
licenses, and Carroll denied
either using cherry bombs to
move the ducks, or firing in
such a way as to cause pel-
lets to rain on anyone's roof.
Both acts have been al-
leged by some members of
the Juniper Lake Conser-
vancy Committee, which is
trying to get state wildlife
authorities and local leaders
to meet and discuss their
concerns. Carroll plans to
attend as well.
"We didn't intrude on any-
body," he said, adding that on
several occasions he and
Phillips have been "cussed
at" and lectured by residents.
In one instance, he recalled,
a woman threatened him
with arrest. He responded by
inviting her to call the sher-


rassment" was so bad that he
has not hunted at the lake
since around New Year's. "We
got cussed out so bad, we gbt
tired of it."
He did recall hearing
someone firing bot tie rockets'
around New Year's, but it
was not him or his cousin. He
-thinks it might have been
someone celebrating New
Year's.
As for firing close t1
homes, Carroll said that he
and his cousin always hunt
from a boat in the middle of
the lake. "We stay at least 50
or 60 yards inside the water
line, which is 60 or 70 yards
from the shore line."
Carroll has seen the
eagles and herons men-
tioned by the conservancy
committee, and said that he
doesn't disturb them, and
that they in turn pay him no
mind. He added that eagles
occasionally feed on ducks
shot by hunters.
Whether there is a conser-
vancy committee meeting or
not, Carroll said he is deter-
mined to continue hunting,
and plans to go out this week.
S"I don't think that's asking
too much, letting us hunt
duck a few months out of the
year," he said.

Improved recreation on the Choctawhatchee Bay


Travelers who drive across
the Choctawhatchee Bay in
Walton County, may have
noticed some great improve-
ments at the Bayfield recre-
ational area on the
Choctawhatchee Bay cause-
way.
The picnic area on the
west side of U.S. 331 has re-
ceived a major facelift with
an improved boat ramp, a
dock with five slips, seawall
repairs, and a boardwalk
that extends from the boat
ramp along the waterfront.
Water and sewer service will
be provided by the city of
Freeport and Regional Utili-

council to
meet
The Long-Term Care Om-
budsman Program is looking
for volunteers to become in-
vestigators. Volunteers will
be trained to act as advocates
for residents of long-term
care facilities (nursing
homes, assisted living facili-
ties, and adult family care
homes) in Escambia, Santa
Rosa, Okaloosa, and Walton
Counties and will addition-
ally defend the rights of resi-
dents as well as investigat-
ing complaints. Volunteers
will insure residents are
treated with respect and dig-
nity, and will also perform
surprise inspections of these
facilities.
After completion of the
training volunteers will re-
ceive an appointment from
Florida's Secretary of Elder
Affairs as an Ombudsman.
Anyone interested in volun-
teering for a position as an

Florida's elderly residents

landscaping and improve-
ment to the restroom facili-

This project has been an
ongoing priority for the Wal-
ton Board of County
Commissioners. The cause-
way property is owned by the
Florida Department of
Transportation, with a no-
cost lease in place for the
county to operate and main-


tain the park areas. Work
done on property around the
Bay requires approvals from
the Department of Transpor-
tation, and other agencies
such as the Army Corps of
Engineers and the Florida
Department of Environmen-
tal Protection.
The work was begun dur-
ing Commissioner Ro
Cuchens' term, and is largely
being done by county Public


LOCAL RESIDENTS have noticed the improved park on

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR



EDITOR'S COMMENT

Be prepared to assemble
By RON KELLEY


According to the First
Amendment to the U.S. Con-
stitution, "Congress shall
make no law... abridging the
right of the people peaceably
to assemble..." The way
things are going, that may
not last.
However, that's a topic for
another day. Today I'm talk-
ing about a different kind of
assembly the kind practiced
in only two places in the
United States.
It began in Chautauqua,
New York, and spread to
Florida, where a winter as-
sembly was created next to a
small, round lake. Eventu-
ally, a fairly grand audito-
rium was built to house the
event, which lasted for
weeks. Part of that building,
the Hall of Brotherhood, still
stands on the shores of Lake
DeFuniak and it will again
play host to the Chautauqua
Winter Assembly.
Like the original event, this
year's Assembly will educate,
motivate, inspire, amuse and
entertain through a variety
of special concerts, lectures,
demonstrations and theatri-
cal performances. The sheer
abundance of talent that will
be descending on DeFuniak
Springs for four days in Feb-
ruary is astounding.
When it's done right, at-
tending the Assembly is like
traveling to some big city and
having all the best things the
place has to offer performed
right in front of you over a
period of a few days. The ad-
vantage for locals is that we
don't have to go anywhere.
It's right here in front of us.
Of course, it will draw thou-
sands from other places, too,
but there's nothing better
than having a ringside seat.
For the first time, the As-
sembly will be under the di-
rection of community leader
and businesswoman Ann
Robinson, and I must say
that the lineup is such that I
may have to take a couple of
days off to attend everything
I want to see.
For instance, I was a big fan
of the late newspaper colum-
nist Lewis Grizzard. He was
hysterically funny and was
the kind of writer that
caused readers to interrupt
others in order to read some


passage to them in the of-
fice, over the phone or over
the breakfast table.
The one-man-show, "A Trib-
ute to Lewis Grizzard" with
Bill Oberst, is on my must-
see list for Friday, Feb. 9.
Dr. Sanford Silverberg, a
keynote speaker, will talk on
"Migration, Immigration and
Globalization," three topics
that already dominate poli-
tics and will continue to im-
pact each of us profoundly.
Country music fans will en-
joy the return of the Sawmill
Band, who make their musi-
cal home at the Farmer's
Opry in Chumuckla, Florida.
As for Truth, Justice and
The American Way, Ben
Brown, another keynote
speaker, has good news for
those of us who are 50 or
above. He'll talk on "How Ag-
ing Baby-Boomers Are Going
to Save Florida, America and
the World."
We can all enjoy the War
Between The States (much
better this time around) as
the Civil War Camp Re-enac-
tors set up Federal, civilian
and Confederate camps
along the shores of Lake De-
Funiak. A word of warning -
cannons will be fired and
General Sherman's name
will likely be taken in vain
more than once.
For those who prefer gen-
tility over lack of civility,
there will be afternoon tea
'and crumpets at Dr. Spires'
lovely old home across from
the Lakeyard.
These are just a few of the
wonderful offerings. I urge
you to call or go online and
find out everything that's
coming to Walton County.
Many of the programs are
free and the cost of the other
programs is modest by
anyone's reckoning.
The events begin Thursday
morning, Feb. 8 and extend
through Sunday afternoon,
Feb. 11. Find out more at
www.florida-chautauqua-
enter.org or call 1-850-892-
7613.

Citizen! Don't stand
by idly. Exercise your right to
Assemble peacefully and en

bly 2007.

I would like to thank everyone who attended the RSVP
Volunteer Appreciation Breakfast at McLain's. It was an
honor to be there with the people that give their time,
care, and help to.the Walton County community. We, as a
community, are very blessed to have these people. This
new year will bring more volunteers to help not only our
elders also all that need.it. If you want to volunteer please
call Jean Harvey at the Council on Aging, (892-8166)..
Again, a huge thank-you to the volunteers of Walton
County.
Sincerely,
Jean Harvey
Walton County RSVP Volunteer Coordinator





Dear Editor,
I'm writing to comment on the article in your newspa-
per Jan. 10, 2007 about Dr. Kirby. As I read the article, I
thought how wonderful it is for these dentists to help a
friend and how good they must feel because they are do-
ing this. I think the public needs to let them know how
much they are appreciated.
I'm praying that Dr. Kirby will completely recover and
be able to take over his practice.
Sincerely,
Irene Holden
DeFuniak Springs, Fl.




Editor:
I have been following the Florida Homeowners Insur-
ance crisis and I have studied the various ways to attack
the problem. This problem has hit me hard.
1. The State of Florida is not in the insurance business
and taxpayer's monies should not be used to protect our
homes.
2. All home insurance companies across America and
Canada should be automatically eligible to do business in
Florida. The playing field should be level whereas every
company meets the same rules for eligibility.
The Northwest Florida Daily News Editor's comments,
dated 01-14-07 are well taken.The Legislature would be
wiser to let the free market sort this out as long as stan-
dards of fairness are maintained.

Dear Editor,
It seems appropriate to enlighten Dr. Charles Satterwhite of
the Freeport UMC, concerning his recent article in the reli-
gious pages of the Herald about "love for Jews." It is assumed
he refers to all Jews and not just Zionists, Irsaelis or dual citi-
zen American-Israel Hebrews. However, it is proper to cite the
following to balance his injudicious and parochial comments.
In cahoots with the ACLU, Jewish lawyers file all the suits
to remove Christian symbols, nativity scenes, the Ten Com-
mandments, etc.., from public places. In fact, Jews have filed
suits to prevent our military from erecting crosses in national
cemetery sites. And these same people have sued to block the
Boy Scouts from using state-owned parks, because they are a
Christian organization.
The U.S. Air Force,Academy has hit with two Congressional
bills, stimulated by the Jewish Anti-Defamation League, "to
ban the mention of Jesus' name during prayers in the dining
hall, at football games and official ceremonies."
In Los Angeles County, a small gold cross was removed form
the city seal after.being threatened by'a lawsuit.
Because the Jewish hierarchy cannot stand to see Jesus'
name in any public form, the Kentucky Board of Education
proposed changing the calendar term "BC" to the Jewish term
"BCE" (Before Common Era), and they want "AD" to read, "Cornm
mon era".'
In Israel, there are laws to forbid the teaching'ofthe Gospel
to any Jew, handing our track, etc.. The law states, "...to teach
or propagate Christian doctrine can result in a fine, prison
and or departation..."
The above examples are but a few that illustrate the sus-
tained attack on Christianity. I pray the Good Pastor
Satterwhite will reassess his position and become a crusader
for Christ not Jews.
Sincerely,
Sir Harold H. Miller
Freeport, FL





Editor:
Many individuals and supporters in DeFuniak Springs
helped make the recent 2006 Annual Tour of Homes a big suc-
cess. I wish to express, our thanks and appreciation to every-
one for their participation, hard work, and support.
First, a very special thank you to those who shared their
homes so graciously. The homeowners work really hard each
year, giving generously of their time and the expenses that
accompany having homes on the tour. Those sharing their
homes in 2006 tour were: Alex Alexander, Marie Lathinghouse,
John Parson, Dennis and Brenda Ray, Richard Thomas, and
Jan and Genevive Van Slate. Once again, visitors were charmed
by the beautiful homes, lavish Christmas decorations, and
warm hospitality of the hosts and docents.
Space limitation prevents my naming everyone who contrib-
uted time, effort and means. They include the many docents
who volunteered their time and welcomed our visitors so
warmly; the people who sold tickets at the'Visitors Center and
the Big Store; the DeFuniak Herald, for your very generous
coverage in the weeks leading up to the tour; WZEP AM 1460
and WDSPAM 1280 radio stations and TV 24, for the wonder-
ful help with publicity; Smith's Signs and Printing, for their
timely help with printing the needed materials; an the Wal-
ton County Chamber of Commerce, for accepting and respond-
ing to inquiries.
Finally, our thanks to the people of DeFuniak Springs and
the out-of-town guests who joined us December 2. Your enjoy-
ment and enthusiasm added immeasurably to the festive holi-
day atmosphere that prevailed throughout the day. We were
especially pleased to see so many DeFuniak Springs Friends
take the tour this time.
Thank you and the DeFuniak Herald for providing me this
opportunity to express our gratitude and appreciation.
Dennis F. Ray, President
Partners in Progress

provided free tax return

AARP TaxAide volunteers
filed close to 2 million re-
turns and most were filed
electronically. Electronic fil-
ing brings the refund much
faster and the client still re-
ceives a paper copy of the re-
S=. turn for their records. This
service is sponsored byAARP
Foundation and the IRS so it
is absolutely free to the cli-

In Walton County there

Gulf Coast Community


meet to discuss Florida's


property tax structure


There will be a town hall
meeting in Panama City that
will discuss potential
changes to Florida's property
tax structure. Senator Don
Gaetz and other legislative
leaders will attend the
Thursday meeting.
At 6 p.m. in the Language
Arts Lecture Hall at Gulf
Coast Community College,
leaders of the Florida Senate
and House of Representa-
tives will meet directly with
taxpayers about how to
change the state's property
tax structure.
Senator Gaetz will be
joined by Senator Mike
Haridopolos, chairman of the
Senate Finance and Taxation
Committee and other legisla-
tive leaders, in asking the


people of Florida for their
best ideas in how to improve
the tax system, in what will
be the first town hall meet-
ing on property taxes will be
held in northwest Florida.
"I want state lawmakers to
hear firsthand from
businesspeople, home-own-
ers, retirees, investors, and
families in our area should
the homestead exemption be
doubled, should "save our
homes" benefits be portable,
should an overall limit be
placed on property taxes,
what's the best way to make
the property tax system
fairer and get tax increases
under control," he asked.
Gaetz promised that his
first major piece of legislation
in the Florida Senate will


limit increases in ad valorem
property taxes. "Across our
state, county commissions
have raised property taxes
80 percent in the last six
years. During the same pe-
riod of time, city govern-
ments have increased their
property taxes by 98 percent
and special taxing districts
have gone up 110 percent,"
he said.
The public is invited Thurs-
day evening, Jan. 26, at 6
p.m. at Gulf Coast Commu-
pity College in the Language
and Literature Building in
Sarzin Lecture Hall.

The Walton County School
Board received an update on
numerous projects that the
school board has approved
where capital projects are
concerned at the January 16
meeting.
Paxton High School's gym-
nasium is progressing nicely.
The block walls are 95 per-
cent complete with the roof
90 percent complete. Me-
chanical and electrical work
is continuing as weather has
been fairly cooperative for
the project. The building may
be ready to be occupied by
this summer, for summer
basketball leagues, if
weather holds and there are
no significant delays. The
gum should be ready for use
by the start of the Paxton
Middle School basketball
season in the fall.
Paxton High School also
had covered walkways in-
stalled along the north side
of the building to keep stu-
dents dry during bus loading.
Covered walkways were also
installed at the rear of the
auditorium and at the main
building entrance.
The Mossy Head School
project continues to move
along as the site work is be-
ing done. The area for the
road to the planned facility
is 95 percent cleared and the
contractor is preparing to
purchase materials for the
start of building work on the
site.
The new Walton High
School project is in the bid
stage, with bids to be opened
on Thursday, January 18.
Bay Elementary School
has had security cameras in-
stalled at the school to help
with campus safety and se-
curity.
Emerald Coast Middle
School has finished the per-
mitting process for the con-
struction of athletic fields
and timbering is under way
at the site.
Freeport High School is
getting facilities for their
baseball field. The baseball
area will receive bathrooms
and a concession stand.

DeFuniak man warns of scam


By BRUCE COLLIER
DeFuniak Springs resi-
dent John Mezick has had a
bad ten months.

It began last April, when
he received a telephone call
purporting to be from the
Walton County Sheriff's Of-
fice (WCSO).
Mezick said that the caller
told him there were three
warrants for his arrest, one
a felony, on credit card fraud
and failure to appear.
The caller gave him a tele-
phone number of an attorney.
Alarmed, Mezick made the
call, and was told by the "at-
torney" that he owed some
$3,000, and could avoid ar-
rest if he could pay the


money by the end of the
month. Mezick furnished a
bank account number and
routing information, and
says that he paid some
$3,184.02 to a firm called
"Rosenthal & Colby."
In September, Mezick was
once again informed that
there was a warrant for him
on a $5,000 debt. He spoke
to several people purporting
to be attorneys, and paid
$5033.31 to head off an ar-
rest.
Finally, in December, he
paid $3,097.06 to clear up
another alleged credit card
theft.
"I'm not a rich man," said
Mezick, who said he had to
dip into retirement money,


sell stocks, and borrow from
friends to realize the funds.
The firms and collections
agencies he was working
with were located in
Florida and New York state.
Mezick made several at-
tempts to verify the debts,
which only served to anger
his callers and intensify the
supposed threat of legal
trouble.

Mezick began checking
county court records, and
made contact with clerks and
legitimate members of law
enforcement and the state
attorney's office. He learned
the happy truth, that there
had never been any war-
rants, that the law firms and


collection agencies were bo-
gus, and that he had been
scammed out of nearly
$12,000..
Mezick has contacted the
Florida and New York state
attorney generals, the bar
associations of both states,
and the FBI. He has since
learned that "Rosenthal &
Colby" and another firm,
"Greenman & Donahue," are
names used by scam artists.
Mezick urged anyone who
gets such telephone calls or
threats to "call the bar asso-
ciation."
"It's easy to verify this," he
said. "I just want people to
be made aware. For me to
lose this much money is dev-
astating."


Traffic stop nets 17 arrests


The Walton County Sheriff's
Office (WCSO) arrested 14juve-
niles and three adults on the night
of January 13 in Santa Rosa
Beach. Fourteen of them are un-
der the age of 18. All have been
charged with burglary, defrauding
an innkeeper, and criminal mis-
chief damage worth over $200.
A patrol unit was conducting
a traffic stop, shortly after mid-


night, when the deputy heard
yelling nearby. As the deputy
proceeded to investigate, he
found that a rental property on
CR-30A was being illegally
uused as a party location.

Partygoers began to run in all
directions when they saw the blue
lights of the patrol car, many to-
wards the beach. The suspects


had removed the front door off its
hinges in order to gain access to:
the rental unit. The front door
was found later that night on the
boardwalk near the beach.
More deputies responded to
the area where they found the
partygoers wandering around,
and took them into custody. Sev-
eral partygoers returned to the
scene voluntarily to retrieve their


personal belongings and were
taken into custody as well. In-
side the residence, there was evi-
dence of alcohol use, damaged

(Universal) for $950,000.
Part ofthe settlement entails
no admission of wrongdoing
on the part of Citizens.
Universal, based in Hous-

was fired in 2004, allegedly
for refusing to make pay-
ments to Citizens' then-chief

Universal claimed that
Hulsebusch had accepted
.some $25,000 in bribei'froif

won a contract to handle
Citizens' claims. The lawsuit
sought' $4.6 million in dam-
ages.
Hulsebusch resigned after
SUniversal made these allega-
tions, but has not been
charged with any criminal
offense.
Citizens' legal counsel said
that the case was settled be-
cause a protracted lawsuit
would have been more expen-

lost. its contract because it
was not able to handle claims

Length of


council terms


up to voters


By LEIGH STRICKLAND
Proposed changes to the
term lengths of elected city
officials were discussed at the
January 22 meeting of the
DeFuniak Springs City
Council. A change from two-
year terms to four-year terms
will appear on a referendum
later this year for the
consideration of city voters.
Discussed at Monday
night's meeting was the
transition process that would
be utilized if that referendum
were to be passed. Officials
elected to council seats 1, 2,
and 3 in 2008 would serve
three-year terms. Then,
officials elected in 2009 and
all those elected afterward
would serve four-year terms.
Financial savings to the
city in holding fewer elections
would not be seen until 2010.
Though hurricane season
is still months away, one local
group is looking ahead to the
possibility of providing
camping spaces for RV's used
in future disaster relief.
The New Life Seventh-
Day Adventist Church is
considering the use of a piece
of its property between
Walton Road and Lakeview
Drive along Dove Lane to
provide water and electric
hookup for RV's. These
hookups would only be used
in the event of a natural
disaster in the area.
Because the property is
currently zoned R-1
residential, a zone change
would be required for the
project to proceed. The
council also requested input
from neighboring residents
about the possibility of
having the emergency
camping area located near
them.
Representatives from area
cable provider Bright House
were present at Monday's
meeting. The company's
franchise agreement will
expire on January 25. A new
agreement. has been
prepared and reviewed by the
council, but has not yet been
acted upon.
Though a formal public
hearing will be set for a
future council meeting,
concerned citizens were
present to speak about issues
with the company.

SThe annual meeting of Grit
& Grace will be held Satur-
day, January 27, at 2 p.m. at

As president of a local
computer club, resident J.B.
Hillard said he is elated to
have high speed internet,
available through Bright
House, but that he would like
to see the company expand its
service to. outlying rural
areas. Bright House General
Manager Bruce Burgess said
that an area must have 30 or.
more customers for
expansion to be feasible.
Another issue concerning
citizens is Bright House's
removal of The Weather
Channel from the basic cable
package. Burgess called that
change a corporate-level
decision. The decision was
said to have been made for
economic reasons.
The process continues for
selecting an engineering firm
to provide water, wastewater,
and natural gas services to
the city.
Council members saw
presentations by its top three
ranked firms and re-ranked
them accordingly. Peters
Municipal Associates ranked
first in the new ranking,
followed by CDG
Engineering and Goodwin,
Mills, and Cawood.
Following negotiations
with the firms, a negotiation
committee will make
recommendations to the
council at a future meeting.
Finally, Bert Howell, on
behalf of Pinnacle Housing,
presented information to the
council about a possible low
income workforce housing
development. The 88-unit
project would be'located in
the Bruce Creek area, at the
end of South 11th Street and
would consist of four three-
story buildings. Rent would
range from about $427 for a
one-bedroom unit to $648 for
a three-bedroom unit. If the
project proceeds, con-
struction is expected to be
completed in 2009.

nual event, is able to offer

less influential in old age than
they've been in every other
phase of their lives.
Friday's Keynote presentation
is "Migration', Immigration, and
Globalization," presented by Dr.
Sanford Silverburg. This pre-
sentation explores how from the
dawn of the species, humans


have migrated across the globe
for survival, but as the globe is
becoming increasingly more
compact, what does all this
mean for the future? Dr.
Silverburg is a Professor of Po-
litical Science and Chair of the
Department of Political Science
at Catawba College, Salisbury,
North Carolina.
Ben Brown returns on Satur-
day to present "What the Gulfs
Ordeal in the Wake of Hurri-

"A Tribute to Lewis Grizzard"

coming to

Chautauqua Assembly
Actor and impressionist Bill Oberst Jr. will bring to the stage the life and
humor of Lewis Grizzard, in "A Tribute to Lewis Grizzard Jr.,".on Friday,
Feb. 9. The one-man, one-night performance will take place at the Florida
Chautauqua Theatre. Curtain time is 7 p.m. Tickets are $15'for adults, and
$5 for patrons under 18 years old.
The show is part of the 2007 Chautauqua Assembly, which runs Feb. 8 -

Oberst describes himself as "a true Southern boy," and was selected by
Grizzard's widow and manager to portray the late humorist, columnist and
author.
The show is taken from Grizzard's own words. The first act recreates the
successful comedy concerts that Grizzard played on tour from 1985 1993.
The second act is taken from his columns and books, and is set closer to his
death in 1994.
Grizzard wrote a daily column for the Atlanta Constitution, which was
syndicated in 450 American newspapers from 1979 1994, the widest circu-
lation of any syndicated columnist. He also wrote 18 books, many of them
bestsellers, and appeared as a guest on "The Tonight Show," "Larry King
Live" and "Designing Women."
Oberst lives in South Carolina, and is also known for his portrayals of
mark Twain, John F. Kennedy, Abraham Lincoln, and Pontius Pilate.

SGuilty As Charged
By Dr. Charles Satterwhite
Pastor, Freeport UMC

*There's no way to God without pleading "guilty as
charged." Guilty of violating the holy law of God every time
we covet what someone else has, every time we tell some-
thing less than the truth, every time we think or act im-
morally, every time we let someone or something be more
important to us than God is.
*Every one of us is a rebel against Almighty God. The
more religious you are, the harder it is for you to plead
guilty to running your own life, to being the sinner God
says you are. Until you agree with God about your guilt,
there is no hope. And sin carries a heavy penalty eter-
nal separation from a holy God. The Bible calls that hell.
But, there is amazing good news. "Yet God, with un-
deserved kindness, declares that we are righteous. He did
this through Christ Jesus when He freed us from the pen-
alty for our sins. For God presented Jesus as the sacrifice
for sin.
People are made right with God when they believe
that Jesus sacrificed His life, shedding His blood." There
it is! The Judge's declaration that you are not guilty even
though you are because He offered His only Son to lay
down His life to pay for what you've done, so you could be
free from the guilt of every wrong thing you've ever done
and have the hell you deserve cancelled for the heaven
you could never deserve.
But you have to tell your Judge that you are depend-
ing completely on His Son's death for you as your only
hope. And at that moment, the One who would have been
your Judge becomes your Savior. It can happen today, if
you'll reach out to Jesus and give yourself to Him, because
He gave Himself for you.
See you.this Lord's day! Sunday School 9 a.m.; Worship
10 a.m. Stop by here on your way to eternity.


tants will compete in inter-
view, evening wear, and
onstage questions. For inter-
view, wear an interview suit.
Evening wear must be appro-
priate pageant attire.

If we could have a lifetime wish
and one dream that could come true.
We would pray to God with all our
hearts just to see and speak to you.
A thousand words won't bring you back
we know because we've tried.
And neither will a million tears
we know because we cried.
You've left behind our broken hearts
and precious memories too.
But we never wanted memories
we only wanted you.

We love and miss
you very much.
Forever in our hearts

The descending and


ascending of Jesus


By Dr. Robert M. Jaye
In Ephesians 4:10 there is
something amazing! "He that
descended is the same also
that ascended up far above
all heavens, that He might
fill all things." In the council
of the Divine Trinity, it was
agreed that He would deliver
mankind from sin by the sac-
rifice of Himself. Hebrews
2:14, 17 tell us why. "Foras-
much, then, as the children
are partakers of flesh and
blood, He also Himself took
part in the same, that He
might be a merciful and
faithful High Priest."


How did He descend? He
bowed the heavens and came
down, the darkness of earth
under His feet. He came to a
virgin mother and a manger
bed, to Joseph's home in
Nazareth, to a carpenter's
shop, down to hunger and
thirst, to agony and bloody
sweat, to the cross and suf-
fering, to death and burial in
a borrowed tomb; down to the
dim shadow world of hell
(Acts 2:27, 31).

He ascended from these
low depths, with the keys of
death and hell in hand. He


ascended on high, leading
captivity captive as He
passed upward.
This same Jesus who de-
scended is now ascended,
with a glorified nature. He
can fill all believing hearts,
all lives, all homes, with
grace and love and help, just
as He showed during His
earthly ministry. Read the
Gospels again, not so much
as a record of the past, but
as a mirror of the living
present (Hebrews 13:8).


If you are in loneliness,
poverty, sickness, sorrow, and
pain, getting no comfort from
this world, read the Gospels
again. They are as the diary
and day-book of the living
Savior. He that descended is
the same also that ascended.
He ascended that He might
fill the lowest depths of hu-
man need. Even though He
ascended, remember that His
tears brimmed over at the
grave of His friend. Jesus can
be trusted.

Paxton girls


earn 20th win


By PATRICK CASEY
The Paxton Lady Bobcats
got 29 points from Breezy
Zorn as the squad earned
their 20th win of the season
in a 69-35 victory over the
Freeport Bulldogs.
Paxton claimed their 15th
straight win in the series as
they rolled to a 44-14 half-
time lead. Tareisa Reese
scored 19 points while


Kaycee Jones led the Bull-
dogs with eight points.
The Paxton win sets up a
showdown with Walton on
Saturday night in DeFuniak
Springs for the county girls
championship. Paxton won
the first meeting between the
two teams in November, but
Walton could tie them for the
county title as both teams
swept Freeport and South
Walton this season.

Two of the Big Bend area's
top receivers have trans-
ferred from Tallahassee
Chiles to other schools.
Chiles junior Melvin Ray
transferred to North Florida
Christian after the holiday
break, while teammate
Daniel Bryant enrolled at
Lincoln. The move left the
Timberwolves coaches sur-
prised, but it was evident
that Chiles struggled to
throw the ball last season.
Ray joins NFC with Casey
Weldon set to enter his sec-
ond year as head coach, while
Bryant joins a Lincoln squad
that is still one of the more
dangerous football squads in
the area. The transfers are a
major blow to a Chiles foot-
ball program that continues
to struggle in their own dis-
trict.
Soccer season ended for
South Walton and Walton
last week. Walton lost to
Pensacola Catholic 6-0 while
Chipley defeated South Wal-
ton 2-0 in district semifinal
contests.
Chuck Amato who was
fired in November after
seven seasons as North Caro-
lina State's coach agreed to
an undisclosed contract last
Wednesday and will return
to his former home as a coach
at FSU. He spent 18 seasons
on the Seminoles' staff, mov-
ing into a role as assistant
coach and linebackers coach
before accepting the N.C.
State job in 2000. Former
Seminole All-America wide
receiver Lawrence Dawsey
will join the football coaching
staff as well. Dawsey, who
was a first team Associated
Press All-America selection
in 1990 and Sports
Illustrated's 1991 NFL
Rookie of the Year, takes over

Jeff Bowden's duties as wide
receivers coach. The Semi-
noles also added former
Seminole and NFL running
back Dexter Carter, who will
join the Florida State coach-
ing staff as running backs
coach.
A written survey of 91 Di-
vision I coaches revealed that
60 percent want to rescind
the new rules designed to
speed up college football
games. Games averaged
three hours and six minutes
in 2006, a decrease of 13 min-
utes from 2005.
Division I-A college football
coaches who agree to vote in
the USA Today Coaches Poll
next season will not be al-
lowed to abstain, according
to a new policy mandate from
the American Football
Coaches Associaiton.
Florida State will open its
2007 football schedule at
Clemson on Labor Day night
in a game that will be tele-
vised nationally on ESPN at
8:00 p.m. This will be the
third season in a row that

Seminoles new look



with some old faces


Jorge Says: We'll Work Hard To Earn Your(Business Durin


By CHUCK HINSON
It has been considered the
biggest shake-up, house
cleaning and realignment in
three decades for the Florida
State Seminoles football
team. Some are first time
coaches and one is a coach
that got his beginnings on
the field under head coach
Bobby Bowden.
The latest addition to the
new FSU coaching line-up is
former assistant coach
Chuck Amato. He served at
Florida State under Bowden
and now returns after being
fired from N.C. State, to re-
claim his position.
Amato was named execu-
tive associate head coach and
linebackers coach and com-
pletes Bowdens biggest staff
realignment.
A former player and gradu-
ate from North Carolina
State, Amato was fired in No-
vember a day after he com-
pleted his seventh season
with the Wolfpack. Amato
went 49-37 with N.C. State
and led the team to five bowl
games, but his Wolfpack
struggled in the ACC at 25-
31 and despite having a few
key, conference wins against
Florida State, the team never
finished higher than fourth
in the ACC rankings.
This year, Amato suffered
the same 7-6 record as FSU,
and the Wolfpack adminis-
tration was ready for a
change.
While serving under
Bowden for 18 seasons in the
80s and 90s, the Seminoles
were at the top of their con-
ference and enjoyed a run of
14 consecutive years where
the Noles won 10 or more
games a season.
The Seminoles finished
this past season with a vic-
tory in the Emerald Bowl
against UCLA, with a 7-6
record.
Amato takes the place of
Kevin Steele as the executive


head coach and linebackers
coach. Steele left the pro-
gram to join Nick Saban and
the Tide as their new defen-
sive coordinator.
Among the new faces on
the offensive staff include
former FSU and NFL run-
ning back Dexter Carter who
has taken the place of Billy
Sexton who will be accept-
ing a position with the FSU
Foundation. Carter played
with the Seminoles from
1986-89 and played seven
seasons in the NFL.
Carter was the first round
pick with the 25th pick over-
all before leaving FSU. It is
the administration's hope
that he will bring Seminole
prideback on the field with
him, along with his NFL ex-
perience to the program.
Other new coaches will be
Odell Haggins and Jody
Allen who will be joining re-
turning defensive coordina-
tor Mickey Andrews and the
Seminoles tight ends coach
John Lilly.
Bowden has said that with
this combination of coaching
experience both in college
and NFL, FSU now has
coaches that are as good as
any other staff in the NCAA.
The changes that Florida


State has gone through over
the past month seem :to be
working as well for the fans,
who have already reported to
bombard the school's and
team's websites about up-
coming dates for the Garnet
and Gold game in April, and
trying to purchase season
tickets earlier this year than
in recent decades.
Amato's style of coaching
and his experience not.only
as a conference rival, made
him an ideal choice for the
position. As for Carter, hav-
ing a player that catapulted
the Seminoles to sports team
icon status, it is refreshing to
see old players take on new
roles at their alma mater as
a career.
With the new changes at
Florida State, .expectations
seem to be high for the first
time in many years with
thousands of Seminole fans,
who, like Alabama,'.remem-
ber the good 'ole days when
FSU dominated its confer-
ence and the NCAA
rankings. One of the things
that many of those fans that
were asked about the new
coaching staff said, they were
just glad it didn't take'$30
million to get these coaches
to Tallahassee.

THURSDAY JANUARY 25,


Private beach


access approved for


Redfish Village


By DOTTY NIST .
Two restrooms and show-
ers for a private beach access
are to replace a duplex on a
0.63-acre beachfront parcel
on the south side of Blue
Mountain Road.
Located three lots west of
the CR-83/Blue Mountain
Road intersection, the parcel
is to serve as a private beach
access for the use of
homeowners in Redfish Vil-
lage, a nearby nonbeachfront
south Walton County devel-
opment. No structures such
as a beach club were part of
the approval, nor is there to
be a parking area.
While the access will be
private, the white sand area
south of it will be deeded to
public use as part of the de-
velopment proposal.
? Approved in a 3-1 vote by,
the Walton County Board of
County Commissioners
(BCC) on Jan. 23, the access
proposal was a controversial
one, with approximately 30
concerned Blue Mountain
Beach residents attending
the commission hearing.
Several residents and an
attorney representing Blue
Mountain Beach
homeowners asked the BCC
to turn down the plans for
the private access.
One resident, Richard
Fowlkes, pointed out some
positive aspects, suggested a
bike or pedestrian path
leading to the access, and
called for conditions to pro-
tect the neighborhood from
expansion of use on the prop-
erty.-
Attorney George Ralph
Miller, himself a Blue Moun-
tain Road homeowner, spoke
in favor of the private access
as a developer's representa-
tive.
"We've complied with your
rules," Miller told the com-
missioners.
Jason Bryan of the Walton
County Planning Depart-
ment also told the BCC that
the proposal was consistent
with the land development
code and comprehensive
plan.
Bryan said the applicants
had agreed to limit use on the
property to no later than 10
p.m. and to prohibit any type
of loud noise. Vendors are to


be disallowed. The preceding
conditions are to be attached
to the approval as covenants.
Miller noted that the deed-
ing of the 113-foot-long, 77-
foot-wide white sand area
south of the access to the
public qualified this as a civic
use.
Pat Blackshear, county
planning director, com-
mented that the planning
department would not have
recommended the proposal
for approval without this
public dedication.
An attorney representing
Blue Mountain Beach
homeowners argued against
the compatibility of the pri-
vate access with the quiet
residential neighborhood
surrounding the property. He
saw the function of the access
as "shifting the population
impact of a dense develop-
ment" into the neighborhood.
"This may not be a beach
club...but inevitably that's
what it's going to turn into,"
he added.
Eileen Mackett, a resident
of nearby Sunseekers condo-
miniums, foresaw over 300
people being on the beach at
the access using the two
.restrooms.
Mackett also objected that
she and some other residents
did not receive proper writ-
ten notification of the pro-
posal as neighboring prop-
erty owners.
Albert Serrero, also in op-
position, commented, "No
one can understand how a
project like this can be com-
patible with the neighbor-
hood."
He objected to "the
funnelling of 80 units (at
RedfishVillage)...into a 75-
foot lot."
Serrero also had concerns
about how the public would
get to the dedicated beach
section, since the access por-
tion would be off limits to
everyone but Redfish Village
residents.
"The public has no way to
get that that property with-
out trespassing," he said.
District 3 Commissioner
Larry Jones posed the ques-
tion of how many people
could be invited to the beach
by someone on the same
property if it were to remain


a duplex.
"This is not a perfect solu-
tion," commented Rosemary
Beach official Jim Bagby.
However he said he would
support such a proposal in
the vicinity of Rosemary
Beach.
Bagby called for a compre-
hensive policy to address ac-
cess to the county's beaches,
lakes, the bay, and other wa-
ter bodies.
District 4 County Commis-
sioner Sara Comander called
Redfish Village's plans for a
trolley to bring beachgoers to
the private access "a wonder-
ful idea," since those people
would be going to be beach
anyway, and it would reduce
automobile traffic on the
road.
However, she did have con-
cerns that approval of the
proposal could set a prece-
dent "that other developers
could exploit."
She thought the issue rep-
resented here to be the single
biggest one faced by the
county's beaches after that of
building height.
District 1 Commissioner
Scott Brannon noted the sev-
eral public beach accesses in
the same area are "under
pressure right now" with
heavy use.
With Redfish Village resi-
dents going to their own ac-
cess, the other accesses
would be less crowded, he
reasoned.
He moved to approve the
proposal with the previously
stated conditions attached.
Jones seconded, urging for
the applicants to work to-
ward creating a bike path be-
tween Redfish Village and
the private access.
"I think it would go a long
way," he said.
The motion was approved
3-1, with Brannon, Jones and
County Commission Chair-
man Ken Pridgen voting in
favor and Comander voting
no.
She later commented that
she had done so because Dis-
trict 5 Commissioner Cindy
Meadows had not been
present to provide input.
The proposal was in Mead-
ows' district. She was absent
on Jan. 23 due to family ill-
ness.

Local dignitaries visit gravesite


The legendary




story .-of Sam


By JEFFREY POWELL
As with most historical
events the legend of Sam
Story or Timpoochee
Kinnard is a difficult tale to
tell with absolute certainty.
After researching John L.
McKinnon's "History of Wal-
ton County" and reviewing
several submissions to the
Walton Heritage Book, the
following synopsis can be
considered a reasonable at-
tempt at telling the 'story'.

The origins of the Euchee
Indians, of whom Sam Story
was leader, is somewhat
vague, but most believe they
came from the west.
Around 1820, Story in-
vited settlers of Scottish de-
scent he had met in
Pensacola to join his people
in the twenty-five mile long
by twelve-mile wide area we
know today as Eucheeanna
Valley. The Euchee Valley is
south-east of DeFuniak
Springs.
Within ten years the num-
ber of settlers coming into


the valley along with their
reckless treatment of the
area had Story reconsidering
this living arrangement.
A council was called be-
tween the two groups where:
Story expressed his displea-
sure. "We have spoken often,
one with another, about the
way latecomers recklessly
and without benefit to them-
selves, destroy our hunting
grounds and cruelly shoot
down our game, not for food
but for fun, they say, and
leave them to decay on the
hills," Story said according to
McKinnon's book.
Shortly after this council;'
Story, along with four of his
sons and several tribesmen,
set about looking for a new
area in which to live.
After a six-month search,
Story returned to the Valley
and appeared exhausted by
the trip. Summoned to
Story's camp, original set-
tlers Neill NcLennan and
Colonel McKinnon found
Story close to death.
"I want to be buried in a


coffin deep down in the
ground after the manner 'of
your burying and I want mr
bow unstrung, and arrow
and tomahawk placed by my
side," Story said.
After Story was buried
near Choctawhatchee River,
the remaining Euchees per-
formed funeral rites near the
grave for three weeks. '
Afterward, nearly 500
Euchee Indians traveled
down the river and out the
East Pass. Their final desti-
nation is unknown but most
believe the Euchees were as-
similated into Seminole
tribes near the Everglades.,

Recently Walton County
Administrator Ronnie Bell
and County Commissioner
Scott Brannon had the privi-
lege of visiting Story's
gravesite, which is on private
property.
"The history of Walton
County is very important,"
Brannon said. "We want
people to know that the past
is not forgotten."

Code Enforcement Board says deck must go


4, ',. -


p.r17i s
;;



i'* ',:


REMOVAL HAS BEEN mandated for this deck con-
structed adjacent to a restaurant and within the shoreline
protection zone of Eastern Lake. Roping off of the deck was
also ordered in the interest of public safety.


By DOTTY NIST
The Walton County Code
Enforcement Board has or-
dered the removal of a deck
that, according to testimony,
was constructed in violation
of county code in the shore-
line protection zone of East-
ern Lake, a coastal dune
lake.
The board also had safety-
related concerns about the
deck structure, which is at-
tached to the back of the Old
Florida Fish House restau-
rant. They ordered it to be
roped or taped off to prevent
possible injury to anyone
who might go onto it before
removal could be accom-
plished.
According to testimony at
the board's Jan. 18 meeting,


Shahid said the restaurant did not use the deck
for serving customers once being notified of the
violation but that people did use it to smoke ciga-
rettes outdoors. He said the original idea had been
to give restaurant patrons access to the beautiful
view of Eastern Lake.


the first complaint about the
"illegal deck" was received in
May 2006, resulting in an in-
spection visit by a Walton
County code enforcement of-
ficer.
J.C. Alford, code enforce-
ment officer, testified that re-
search by his department re-
vealed the parcel on which
the deck was located to be
owned by Eastern Lake Vil-


lage Series, L.L.C.
Further research, he con-
tinued, revealed that the
deck had been constructed
without a development order
or any type of permit. A
county environmental spe-
cialist confirmed that the
deck had been sited within
the 100-foot shoreline protec-
tion zone of Eastern Lake in
violation of county code,


Alford noted.
Alford said a notice ofvio-
lation was sent to the prop-
erty owners in August 2006
and that the case had beefh
scheduled to be heard by the
Code Enforcement Board in
September 2006. However, at
that point the item was
pulled from the board agenda
to allow for further review by
the legal department, he re-
ported.
In November 2006, ad-
cording to Alford, the man-
ager for the Old Florida FiSh
House stated that the de.k
would be removed.
However, a Jan. 18, 2007
inspection revealed the deck
still in place, Alford said.

Discussion planned on

Proportionate Fair Share strategies


By DOTTY NIST
Proportionate Fair Share
is a feature of Florida's 2005
growth management legisla-
tion intended to facilitate de-
velopment projects in moving
forward while mitigating the
traffic-related impacts of de-
velopment.
Next week, community
members are invited to
gather for a town hall meet-
ing at Sandestin Golf and
Beach Resort with Walton
County commissioners and
officials, state representa-
tives and officials, and rep-
resentatives of local munici-
palities. Discussion will cen-
ter on the Proportionate Fair
Share Program and strate-
gies to meet challenges
posed by this relatively new
growth management mitiga-
tion option.
Among the growth man-
agement laws enacted in
2005 was Senate Bill 360
(S.B. 360), aimed at making
road infrastructure available
to meet the transportation
needs of this fast-growing
state and help preserve this
aspect of quality of life.
S.B. 360 proposed to
"close the gap" between new
development and the con-
struction of new road infra-
structure by requiring road-
ways needed to service new
developments to be in place
or under construction within
three years of the approval
of the new development by lo-
cal government.
The objective of Propor-
tionate Fair Share Program
is to create public/private
partnerships to produce in-
frastructure, with developers
helping fund roads and road-
way improvements to ad-'


dress impacts of their
projects.
Those improvements
might take the form of turn
lanes, parallel reliever
routes, enhancement of road-
way connectivity, transit fa-
cility improvements, or many
other alternatives. S.B. 360
provides for contributions
from developers to be com-
bined into an account main-
tained by the local govern-
ment or by the state Depart-
ment of Transportation
(DOT) for these purposes.
Proportionate Fair Share
comes into play as an option
when a developer has applied
for a development order and
his project has failed to meet
traffic concurrency, or in
other words, if the amount of
traffic generated by his
project would put a roadway
section impacted by the de-
velopment above an accept-
able level of service
Local governments were
required to adopt an ordi-
nance outlining a methodol-
ogy for assessing Proportion-
ate Fair Share contributions
or payments. Walton County
adopted such an ordinance in
Feb. 2006.
With capacity currently
either exhausted or problem-
atic on a number of major
roadways in Walton County,
many developers have been
interested in availing them-
selves of the Proportionate
Fair Share mitigation option.
However, in many in-
stances this has not been pos-
sible, and those projects have
not been able to proceed.
While the procedure for
receiving developer Propor-
tionate Fair Share contribu-
tions is in place with regard

THE PROPORTIONATE Fair Share Program, part of the
state's 2005 growth management legislation, is aimed at cre-
ating public/private partnerships that provide transporta-
tion improvements intended to mitigate the impacts of devel-
opment as Florida grows. Citizens and officials will gather
on Jan. 29 to seek solutions to problems that have arisen as
traffic concurrency-challenged Walton County has attempted
to implement this program locally.


to project impacts on county
roads, this is not the case for
state roads. A number of re-
lated questions remain to be
answered in connection with
state roadways, and for some
time Walton County has been
seeking guidance from DOT.
The problem is, Walton
County Planning Manager
Lois LaSeur explained, that
most of the major routes in
Walton County are state
roads, and that "virtually all"
proposed developments, even
if not sited on state roads,
create transportation im-
pacts on state roads, often
resulting in traffic
concurrency challenges.
To help developers get
started with projects that,
with mitigation of transpor-
tation impacts, would qualify
for approval, Walton County
is looking at multiple op-
tions.
LaSeur said that among
the possible solutions are leg-
islative changes and adjust-
ments to the county's traffic
concurrency management
program. Both of these av-
enues will be discussed at
next week's gathering.
Speakers at the town hall
meeting will include Dawn
Moliterno, Walton County
Chamber of Commerce presi-
dent/CEO; Walton County
Administrator Ronnie Bell;
state Department of Commu-
nity Affairs Secretary Tom
Pelham; DOT Interim Dis-
trict Secretary Larry Kelley;
Pat Blackshear, Walton
County planning and devel-
opment services director;
State Senator Durell Peaden;
and state representatives
Don Brown, Marti Coley, and
Ray Sansom.
The meeting is scheduled
to begin at 4 p.m. on Monday,
Jan. 29. The meeting location
is Bayside Ballroom, sections
E and F, at Sandestin Golf
and Beach Resort. Informa-
tion on the meeting is avail-
able by calling the Walton

ent plant species repre-
sented.

DECK FROM
The property owners had
been charged with violations
in connection three portions
of the code, including shore-
line protection zone regula-
tions, prohibitions on the ex-
pansion of a nonconformity,
and requirements to obtain
a county building permit.
The restaurant itself ex-
tends into the shoreline pro-
tection zone but is consid-
ered a vested nonconformity
since it was built before the
shoreline protection zone be-
came part of county code.
"I had no idea it was in vio-
lation," said Cary Shahid,
speaking for the property
owners, regarding the deck.
"Mr. (Rosier) Cuchens
built it," he added.
Cuchens, a local contrac-
tor, was county commissioner
for District 4 when the deck
was constructed.
Shahid said the restau-
rant did not use the deck for
serving customers once being
Notified of the violation but
that people did use it to
Smoke cigarettes outdoors.
He said the original idea had
been to give restaurant pa-
trons access to the beautiful
view of Eastern Lake.
Also representing the
property owners, Randy
Gardner requested a 120-day
extension to allow for a deck
and boardwalk permit to be
obtained in order to bring the
deck into compliance.
Board member Richard
Fowlkes did not think the
property owners would be


FRONT


able to get permission "from
the county or anyone" to keep
the deck in place in the
shoreline protection zone. He
added that they had been no-
tified of the violation and told
to take the structure down
some time ago. "You should
have already been working
on that," he said.
"I have a problem with
contractors who think they
can build without a permit;"
said board member Charlotte
Flynt, "as a contractor, I
know better."
Examining photos pro-
vided by the code enforce-
ment officers, board vice-
chair Victor Bowman had
concerns about a lack of en-
gineering and possible dan-
ger to be public in connection
the deck, which has no cross
bracings on the underside.
Bowman said the handrails
also did not appear to be con-
structed per code.
Fowlkes moved to direct
the property owners to see
that the deck was "cordoned
off' to bar access by noon the
following day, Jan. 19, and
that it be removed within 60
days of the Jan. 18 meeting,
or be subject to a $100-a-day
fine for each of three viola-
tions.

The motion was approved
6-0. In addition, a motion
was also approved requiring
the property owners to pay
board attorney and stenogra-
pher costs for their portion of
the meeting.

Question: What are temporary license plates used for?


The facts:

Florida law provides for a variety of legal uses of temporary license plates. The most
common is by motor vehicle dealers to allow customers who don't have a license
plate to transfer to be able to drive their newly purchased vehicle off the lot. The
license plates are valid for 30 days, which gives dealers ample time to apply for titles
and registrations for their customers.

If you are not a dealer, but you have acquired another vehicle and transferred your
license plate from your old vehicle to the new vehicle, a temporary license plates
may be obtained from the tax collector's office So you may demonstrate your old
vehicle while it is for sale.

Non-residents also are eligible to secure a temporary license plate for "in-transit"
purposes if they purchase a vehicle in Florida and want to drive it back home.
However, proof of insurance (from Florida or home state) and sales tax in the amount
required by the home state must be paid.

If you feel you may be eligible for a temporary license plate, contact the tax collector's
office, and we will be glad to assist you.




For more information regarding this issue, or other laws and regulations related to
the Office of the Tax Collector, please contact us or visit our website.

We are heading
into spring and that
means it is time for
the new television
line-up on all the
major networks.
This year, FOX and
ABC are slated to
have the highest
rated shows .once
again and viewers
are expecting even
more this season.

It seems that the latest
American Idol winner had
just walked of stage, before
FOX's biggest hit ever is at
it again. The new "American
Idol" got kicked off this week,
with at least 40 new and re-
turning shows across the net-
work board, showcasing their
latest plots, twists, evil char-
acters and schemes.
FOX scored big with their
project of finding the most
talented person in America.
With hundred of thousands
of teenagers and young
adults waiting in line for
days, just to audition, and for
some to be humiliated on
national television, Simon,
Paula and Randy are ready
to dish out comments and
criticism.

Another big score for the
network k is their line-up of


animated shows like The
Family Guy,""The Simpsons"
and "American Dad." The
Simpsons is the longest run-
ning animated show in tele-
vision history and "The Fam-
ily Guy," when cancelled
from the networks line-up a
couple of years ago, caused a
major clog on the FOX
website from angry viewers
who demanded the show be
returned to the networks
line-up.
The other runaway smash
hit for FOX is the show "24."
Main character Jack Bowers'
constant plea to keep alive
while trying to save the
world is a little far-fetched,
but then again so is the fact
that chefs fight to get a spot
on "Hell's Kitchen," just to
be cursed out by the shows
host and have their food ridi-
culed and thrown on the floor
in front of the entire viewing
nation.

The CBS network is once
again floundering with their
line-ups according to many
polls. Shows such as "Big
Brother: All Stars," The
Class," "How I Met Your
Mother," "Rock Star: Super
Nova" have not been well
recieved and the network has
seen lost advertising and
sponsor profits.
A saving grace for the CBS
studio is once again the real-
ity show, "Survivor." It re-
turns once again and is taped.
in Fiji. The show is based on


characters trying to survive
and make it through the en-
tire show without being
voted off or "losing it."
Shows such as "CSI Crime
Scene Investigation," "CSI:
Miami" and "CSI: NY," are
bringing viewers back to the
network and all three shows
are getting good reviews, but
not enough to topple other
networks like ABC and FOX.

NBC has stepped up to the
plate and has once again got
into the viewing race with
their smash hit game-show,
"Deal or No Deal." The show
has millions tuning back into
the floundering network, to
test their luck with the num-
bered cases.
Another stand-out show, is
"Heroes." A show based on a
group of men and women
with supernatural powers
that are used to help keep
law and order in a metropoli-
tan city.
Of course there are twists


and turns and a troubled re-
lationship always seems to
raise its ugly head.
Speaking of ugly, ABC has
to be riding on cloud nine
due to their latest program
explosion with the hit series,
"Ugly Betty." It is a 30
minute comedy that centers
around a less-than-model-
type women who works in
the New York fashion indus-
try.
She faces numerous prob-
lems, especially with her
appearance, but seems to al-
ways be the one that shines
in the end.

For ABC, many spectators
and viewers say that this is
ABC's year. With show like
"Ugly Betty," "Extreme
Makeover," "Gray's
Anatomy" and "Desperate
Housewives," the Emmy
awards will be piling up in
their studio lobby over the
next several weeks and
months.


On the ABC line-up, the
number one show on the net-
work, is "Desperate House-
wives." Airing Sunday eve-
nings, the comedy-drama fol-
lows the lives of five subur-
ban housewives and their
daily lives, loves and lusts and
all the problems that accom-
pany them.
Many have called it, "Dal-
las 2" and the viewership for
Sunday night is almost en-
tirely tuned into the hour-
long program.
ABC hit with a winner two
years ago and has brought it
back for another season, with
"Extreme Makeover: Home
Edition." The show that'
builds homes, rebuilds lives,
and helps change a commu-
nity somewhere in the United
States always has me wiping
a stray tear from my check at
the conclusion of each show.
I know! That is the effect
they are hoping for and
regretably it works on me.
Once again reality shows
will bombard the airwaves
and clog the internets with
fans voicing their opinions.
Once again the nation will
become intrigued with who is
trying to out-do who and who
is making the biggest fool of
themselves.
NBC's, "The Apprentice:
Los Angeles," has hit the re-
ality show line-up and has
Trump wannabes kissing his
feet and stroking his glued-on
hair for a chance to work for
"The Donald." The show, that.


centers around Donald
Trump and his daughter's
wealth, gives college gradu-
ates a chance on a team
project. After it is completed,
they go to the boardroom,
ridicule each other's work
ethics and listen to Donald
talk about how good of an
employer he is and what a
great company he has.
Other reality shows that
will either entertain or cause
you to throw your television
set out include "Wife Swap,"
"Supernanny," "Help Me,
Help You," "Armed & Fa-
mous," "The Amazing Race"
and "The Bachelor," just to
name a few, are coming back
in full-force for the 2007
spring network line-up.

Like them or not, America is
tuning in by the millions ev-
ery night of the week to
watch and wait for the-next
plot to unfold.
For many, with the latest
celebrity feud, they are want-
ing the duel between Rosie
and "The Donald" to make
their way to primetime real-
ity shows.
Just imagine, it could be
called the Rosie Trump Show
and it would have the two
camera-hungry, egomania-
cal loud mouths living in the
same house, sharing chores
and even girlfriends. Now
that would be a reality show
with too many twists and a
variety of "hair-raising" mo-
ments!

MEETING



for the annual meeting is
Walton County Property Ap-
praiser Patrick Pilcher.
Residential property,
which qualifies for home-
stead exemption, enjoys a 3
percent cap on property ap-
praisal increases as a result
of the "Save Our Homes"
amendment passed in 1992.
Property taxes are based
on property value; tax bill is
the result of the coordinated
efforts of county taxing au-
thorities and officials:
Property appraiser deter-
mines the market value of
property; this value is the
taxable value. County com-
missioners determine tax
rate and levy the tax. Tax
Collector sends tax notice


FROM 2-C


and collects tax.
Pilcher will address some
of the questions asked by
WCTA members, involving
the frequency of property ap-
praisals, and the method by
which property value is de-
termined. Additionally,
Pilcher will discuss the right
to meet with property ap-
praisers to discuss concerns
and documentation needed to
support one's case, among
other pressing concerns.
The discussion will include
when to file for a homestead
exemption and what consti-
tutes appropriate filing.

If time allows, additional
questions will be taken at the
meeting.
