helicopter operations



to DeFuniak Springs


By JEFFREY POWELL
"The move of our aircraft
to DeFuniak Springs will
improve services for everyone
in Walton County," said Air
Methods Aircraft Program
Director for the Florida
Panhandle Ron Mosley.
"Over 80 percent of our calls
are in north Walton County."
Mosley attributes the


location of Interstate 10 as
the reason for many north
Walton County calls.
Currently the Air Methods
aircraft is being operated out
of the Walton County'

on U.S. 331 south.

began operating the Airheart
helicopter ambulance service


for Sacred Heart Health
Systems at the beginning of

said Mosley. "Also we will not

Freeport


considers fees,


annexation and


growth issues


By BEN GRAFTON
At its meeting of January
25, Freeort's City Planner,
Latilda Henninger, reported
to the Freeport City Council
that some developer's
engineers are not adequately
addressing deficiencies noted
in city planning and
Engineering reviews when
applications are resubmitted.
In some cases applications*
have been resubmitted as
many as four or five times
before the deficiencies are
corrected. This problem
consumes a great deal of
planning and engineering
time and results in extra cost
to the city.
Henninger proposes, the
establishment of a re-
submission fee schedule to
rein in the tendency to
submit incomplete '' or
inadequate res-.poses to city
reviews. The first re-
submission of plans following
the city's review of the
original a pplication,: is
covered by the ,initial
application fee. From that
point forward though, each
additional re-submission of"
the application would require
a re-submission fee. The
council received the proposal
favorably. City Attorney
Clayton Adkinson ,will
prepare a resolution that
contains a fee schedule for
the council to consider.
Adkinson also presented
the first reading -on an
ordinance to change the
boundaries of the Hammock
Bay Planned Deveopment
Project (PDP). The Council
approved the reading and
authorized advertisement for
the second public reading of
this ordinance.
I Adkinson and Henninger
both reported that work is
underway on recent


annexation requests. This
work includes evaluation of
whether or not the property
involved qualifies for
annexation by its physical
relationship to the city limits.
The work is not finished but,
may poss ibvly be presented in
more detail at the next
council meeting.
. Henninger presented her'
annual report to the council
She called attention to the,
sharp increase in 2006 over
previous years in the number
of development orders issued,
building permits reviewed
and pre-construction
conferences held. The report
also called attention to the
number of residential units,
(1,222) and number of square
feet (138,342) of'commercial
buildings for which
development orders were
issued. All of this data
emphasizes the rapid growth
taking place in Freeport. ,
Henninger appealed to the
council for permission tohire
a part-time planning
department clerk to provide
administrative help. The
applicant % would be hired, for
a specified limited time
which could be extended.
With the tim" stipulation,
students might become a
primary source of applicants.
Henninger gave council
members an information
packet of material to be
considered for the city's
annual monitoring report of
its state designation as a
'Rural Area of Critical
Economic Concern.' Mayor
Mickey Marse said he'd send
out a letter report toward the
end of the month. In the
discussion, it was noted that

Workforce housing development is



awarded $5 million in state funding


State housing officials an-
nounced Jan. 26 that a
workforce housing develop-
ment in Walton County was
chosen to receive $5 million
in state funding under the
Community Workforce Hous-
ing Innovation Pilot Pro-
gram, or CWHIP. Called Wolf
Creek Village, the develop-
ment is the only one in north-
west Florida selected to re-
ceive the funding.
"The need for workforce
housing has been apparent
in Walton County for years,"
said Scott Brannon, Walton
County Commissioner, Dis-
trict 1. "I'm extremely en-
couraged that the state rec-
ognizes this and is helping us
create home ownership op-
tions forour young families;
essential services providers
like police officers,
firefighters, and teachers;
and future generations. A
community designed for our
workforce contributes so
much to the county's future
economic growth. I'm very
pleased that the state has
chosen a Walton County de-
velopment as the recipient of


CWHIP funding."
The non-profit Walton
County Workforce Housing
Corporation formed in Sep-
tember 2006 to develop Wolf
Creek Village, which is lo-
cated just east of Freeport on
300 acres near Highway 20
and J.W. Hollington Road.
Plans for Phase I include
242 homes available for pur-
chase, five acres for neigh-
borhood-serving commercial
uses, and almost 17 acres for
public spaces, lakes and open
areas. A new elementary
school, a new middle school
and a combined public/school
recreation facility are
planned on 40 acres to be
purchased by the Walton
County School Board with
funds\donated by local attor-
ney and real estate developer
Lloyd Blue and his develop-
ment partners. Blue serves
as chairman of the board for
the Workforce Housing Corp.
Groundbreaking is expected
this spring.
Additional homes and
amenities will be built in
Wolf Creek Village when
market demands are deter-


mined.
Homeownership in Wolf'
Creek Village is reserved for
families and individuals
earning no more than 140
percent of Area Median In-
come ("AMI"), or a maximum
of $61,600 for a family of four.
The income qualification is
adjustable based on family
size.
Homes in the initial offer-
ing of Wolf Creek Village
should range in price from
$85,000 to $105,000. The
CWHIP funding allows for a
discount of about $20,000 per
home for homebuyers.
"This is great," said Blue.
"We're thrilled to be able to
offer these homes to working
families at these prices. This
is a project I'm personally
very honored to be a part of."
At least half the homes in
Wolf Creek Village are re.-
served for "essential services
personnel," a.term defined in
a memorandum of under-
standing between the
Workforce Housing Corp.
and the Walton Board of
County Commissioners
dated Dec. 12, 2006. The re-


maining homes will be of-
fered to the private
workforce. All homebuyers
must meet the income re-
quirements, and other deed
restrictions and covenants
will be adopted and enforced
to insure the long-term
affordability of .the commu-
nity. Farm Credit of North-
west Florida has agreed to
provide 100 percent, 30-year
financing to qualified
homebuyers through its "Ru-
ral America Bond Program."
Results of initial market sur-
veys support high interest
and need for quality homes
and communities for working
families.
On Dec.. 12 2006, the Wal-
ton Board of County Com-
missioners approved concep-
tual plans for Wolf Creek Vil-
lage and entered into a for-
mal partnership with the
Workforce Housing Corp.
that approves the terms and
conditions of the project and
endorses its CWHIP applica-
tion. No county taxes are be-
ing used to build the devel-
opment. The eight-member
board of directors is com-


posed of unpaid volunteers,
appointed by the BCC.
Other services such as
marketing and public rela-
tions, accounting and book-
keeping, and planning and
development are provided at
no charge by volunteers.
The idea for Wolf Creek
Village dates to 2004 when
Dewey Wilson, CEO of Re-
gional Utilities, turned to
central Walton County for so-
lutions to maxed-out "grey
water" facilities south of the
Choctawhatchee Bay. Wilson
identified a parcel of land
sufficient to meet Regional's
current and projected needs
at a bargain price. Tests on
the land revealed he would
only need a portion of it for
operations. He concluded
that the portion not needed
for operations would be a
suitable and centrally lo-
cated place for his staff.
CWHIP was passed by the
state legislature on May 2,
2006 and became law on July
1. Funded initially with $50
million, the program,

Commissioners set legislative priorities


By DOTTY NIST
Priorities for federal fund-
ing have been selected by
Walton County's elected offi-
cials.
, On Jan. 23, the Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC) voted
unanimously to approve a
list of five top federal legis-
lative priorities, in the fol-
lowing order: the four-laning
of U.S. 331; expansion of the
Choctawhatchee Bay Bridge
for additional capacity; con-
struction funding for a
wastewater treatment plant
at the Mossy Head Industrial
Park; a county mobile health
unit; and environmental as-
sessment for the coastal dune
lakes.
, Amanda Wood of The
Ferguson Group was present
in DeFuniak Springs on Jan.
23 to take note of the priori-
ties selected by the commis-
sioners. The Ferguson Group
is the company responsible
for lobbying on the part of


"Your senators and representa-
tive are looking to you," Wood said.


Walton County for federal
funding to support local
projects.
This will be the first year
that a lobbyist firm has rep-
resented Walton County in
Congress, although the
South Walton Tourist Devel-
opment Council had previ-
ously enlisted lobbyist assis-
tance in seeking federal
beach restoration funding.
The commissioners chose
from a group of 21 possible
priorities that had previously
been discussed in previous
meetings between the county
and The Ferguson Group.
Wood advised the BCC as
to the likelihood of securing
federal funding in connection


with the various projects. All
five of the projects targeted
were judged to have "high vi-
ability" with regard to being
likely to obtain funding.
Wood explained that she
would be briefing the repre-
sentatives and senators rep-
resenting Walton County
and their staff on the
county's selections in. ad-
vance of a planned visit by
the BCC to Washington in
March.
She added that the federal
elected officials' goal will be
to pass funding bills by the
end of the fiscal year, with
funding expected to come to
the county within three to six
months from the time bills
become law.
Attendance at the special
meeting where the priorities
were discussed was slight.
Tom Terrell of Mossy Head
and J.B. Hillard of DeFuniak
Springs were among the
small group of citizens who
were present.
Terrell commented that he
would have preferred to see
the Mossy Head wastewater


TOP PRIORITIES selected by the Walton County Board of County Commissioners for

Governor signs insurance reform bill


By BRUCE COLLIER
On January 25, Governor
Charlie Crist signed a prop-
erty insurance reform bill
passed nearly unanimously
by both houses of the Florida
legislature.
The bill aims, among other
things, to reduce the skyrock-
eting cost of property insur-
ance premiums.
According to a summary
issued by the Senate Com-
mittee on Banking and In-
surance, the new law "sub-
stantially increase the
amount of hurricane losses
covered by the Florida Hur-
ricane Catastrophe Fund
(CAT fund). The CAT fund


reimburses insurers for a
. portion of their residential
hurricane losses in exchange
for a premium that is much
lower than what private
reinsurers charge."
The result, concludes the
summary, is that policy pre-
miums are lower and more
policies can be written.
The law new law also al-
lows insurers to purchase
additional coverage above
the current limits of the CAT
fund, and mandates rate fil-
ings by property insurers
that reflect "savings or reduc-
tion in loss exposure to the
insurer due to the expanded
CAT fund coverage."


Also substantiallyy re-
vised" are rate establishment
polices for Citizens Property
Insurance Corporation (Citi-
zens), with "actuarial sound-
ness" rather than non-com-
petitiveness as the standard.
The bill addresses several
items specficially involving
Citizens Property Insurance
Corp. (Citizens). Citizens'


2007 rate increase has been
reversed, and a rebate or-
dered to those who have paid
it.
Citizens can now offer ex-
panded eligibility for state-
wide residential and com-
mercial coverage, including
"multiperil" policies in areas
eligible for coverage in the
High Risk Account, in addi-


tion to "wind-only" policies.
The bill also requires re-
peal of the "Panhandle ex-
emption," replaced by a uni-
fied statewide building code.
Property insurers would also
be required to provide cover-
age for catastrophic sink-
holes.
Only two representatives,
Don Brown and Dennis Ross,


voted against the bill, report-
edly because of its undue re-
liance on the state, rather
than the private market, td
deal with rate increases. ,
Other lawmakers have
characterized the bill as a
"stop-gap," and no one has
been able to say definitively
when and how the bill's pur-
ported benefits will be seen.

boundaries are the same. It was also reported that map
information for reports of this type would be digitized, thereby
simplifying future revisions to the maps used for reports.
Henninger also reminded the council of the coming joint
workshop meeting of the city planning board with the city
council that is scheduled for February 15.
Engineer Tony Peters reported that a $3.0 million grant
has been received for improvements to the sewer system.
Marse also advised the Council that bids for phase two of
the sidewalk project have been received. This phase will
provide a walk from City Hall through the park and on out
to Blueberry Street. A bid slightly over $85,000 was approved
by the Council.
An agreement has been reached between the city and
Hammock Bay for a piece of property along Bay Loop road to
be used as a practice field for Little League teams. A
renewable lease at $1 per year will be prepared and signed.
The city will be responsible for construction and maintenance.
A request will be made to Walton Coumity for help with fill.
and equipment.
City Clerk Robin Haynes reported that the Drivers License
.Bureau has asked for building space in Freeport with a high
speed internet connection so they can operate a portable
service center in the city. This service center can process
written tests and issue driving licenses and renewals but it
will not be able to do administer driving tests. The council
approved a motion granting this request.
The council also approved a motion to execute a
memorandum of agreement and support with Enterprise
Florida for its Rural Economic Development Catalyst Project
(RACEC). The project is designed to help. local regional
governments cooperate in programs to bring industry to rural
areas of Florida.
In its final action, the council approved Marses' request to
spend $1,100 to clear underbrush from.the swimming pool
north to Blueberry Street.

No insurance


against sore


winners
t RPOY KELLEY
By now, everyone is aware that the first major piece of
leloatl ion signed by Gov. Charlie Crist is the insurance re-
It.rm bill. The bill is supposed to prevent a pending 56-per-
cent rate increase for Citizens customers and give them a 5
- 15 percent reduction instead. Insurance companies can buy
cheaper re-insurance for themselves, too.
The rest of us consumers are offered further options for
reducing our rates. We can dump our windstorm coverage,
increase our deductibles anSi decline to cover any of the con-
tents of our homes.
If that doesn't sound like much good news, that's because
it isn't unless you are a Citizens customer.
I feared that things were not going well when lawmakers
were quoted a month ago as saying, "Well, it's"not perfect..."
- that's usually a red flag a. warning that campaign rheto-
ric is being buried and it's back to business-as-usual. It's the
same thing they said about the prescription drug plan, and
we see how that turned out. Some lawmakers are now call-
ing the new bill "a stop-gap measure." (BIG red flag!)
Despite obvious flaws with the measure, it passed almost
unanimously in the House. There were two notable hold-
outs, Rep. Dennis Ross of Lakeland and Rep. Don Brown of
DeFuniak Springs.
Following the votes, Ross and Brown were both removed
from critical leadership appointments by House Speaker
Marco Rubio of Miami.
Brown demonstrated that he was an old school Southern
gentleman and offered little comment. He was quoted by
the Miami-Herald as saying, "I have the highest regard for
Speaker Rubio, and beyond my expression of regard for him,
I have nothing more to say about the situation."
Rep. Ross was not so taciturn. He said Rubio forced him
to resign because of the insurance vote. Ross said House
members had bowed to political pressure and knowingly put
Florida residents at risk for billions of dollars in hurricane
damage. Ross said he doesn't regret, casting his 'no' vote.
"Such independence comes with a price. I'm disappointed,,.
but I can live with it," he said.i
Brown and Ross were considered among.the state's best
experts on the insurance industry. Their votes against the
final plan are extremely telling and, as usual, actions speak
louder than words.
A spokeswoman for Rep. Rubio declined to admit or deny
whether the speaker had asked Ross and Brown to resign.
.This doesn't pass the smell test and bodes no relief for
consumers for the coming year. If this is how House leader-
ship treats its best legislators, maybe we need insurance
against the insurance reformers.



"I think the crucial thing in the writing
career is to find what you want to do and
how you fit in. What somebody else does is
of no concern whatever except as an inter-
esting variation." James Michener

Editor:
So often we hear negative comments about law enforce-
ment officers, so I would like to say something positive.
On January 5, my sister passed away suddenly in Venice,
Florida. The sheriff's department called the Walton County
Sheriff's Department so I could be notified in person.
Deputy Chris Lehman came to my home at 3 a.m. and
broke the news to me. He was so compassionate and pro-
fessional while performing a function of his job that must
be very difficult for him to do.
I wish to thank him and thank the sheriff's office for
employing the caliber of officer as Deputy Lehman is.
Thank you,
Nancy O'Connor

Editor:
As the local Relay for Life 2007 get fully under way, I'd like
to take a moment to thank the Herald-Breeze publisher, 'edi-
tor, and staff for all the support you give our efforts.
It will be no secret to your readers that you do a great deal
to publicize Relay fundraising events. I want to emphasize
that you do this for free, and in fact, you constitute one four
most supportive organizations.
I would especially like people to know how much effort you
put into this support. One day early last spring, for example, I
came to your offices just before your deadline with informa-
tion scribbled on three pieces of paper by three different hands ,
for three separate events. You published a short, informative,
and nicely-positioned news article for one; an attractive dis-
play ad for another; and a comprehensive entry in your Com-
munity Calendar for the third. These things are not accom-
plished by magic.
This is why your whole staff deserves our appreciation.
Another time, I came in the morning after deadline with
lengthy article about Relay itself, which was to take place a
few days later. You printed the whole thing on your front page
deleting only a few extraneous words and correcting some of
my punctation. Magic may have been involved in that.
I would also like to publicly thank the staff of WZEP for
their support, and in particular Ms. Marty Dees. She has the
knack and the willingness to take a wordy press release and
compress it into an elegant, informative sound-bite for radio.
I should add that not mentioning other media in this con-
text represents my shortcomings and not their indifference. I
hope to do a better job this year of giving all a chance to follow
your admirable example.
Finally, thanks to all who support the Relay teams various
fundraising events. ,We can all take pride in a community as
small as ours that contributed over $90,000 through last year's
Relay to the fight against cancer. Thanks to all of you.
Sincerely yours,
Dave Sinclair, Publicity Chair
DFS Relay for Life

WC Tax Collector adds

E-Check to payment options


The tax collector's office
has now added Electronic
Check or E-Check payments
to its on-line payment op-
tions. The transaction fee is
only $1.50 per transaction,
regardless of the amount of
the payment.
To take advantage of this
payment option the customer
will simply provide the rout-
ing number from the bottom
of the check, checking ac-


count number and the indi-
vidual check number, via the
secure on-line payment sys-
tem on the tax collector's
website.
Tax Collector Rhonda
Skipper stated, "I am pleased
to offer this convenient pay-
ment method to our taxpay-
ers at such a low cost. Al-
though this option will be
available for all transactions,
E-Check will be especially


beneficial for those who
choose to pay their property
taxes on-line, but prefer to
avoid the convenience fees
associated with credit and
debit cards."
To learn more about E-
Check payment options or to
take advantage of this ser-
vice, visit the tax collector's
website at www.waltontax-
collector.com.

ARC emergency appeal declared


The American Red Cross
is calling upon all eligible
E b I ,, d 1, i ,, r 1 p0 .. .. t 1 I r
i hose \with types O and B
i Negative blood,-to give blood
over the coming weeks in or-
"der to avert a potential disas-
ter in relation to the blood
supply. Since the be-
ginning of January, stagnant
collections, an increase in
demand due to more surger-
ies and severe winter
weather across the country
have created a dangerous
situation for patients in the
more than 100 hospitals in
the region served by the
American Red Cross.
The American Red Cross is
particularly in need of 0 do-
nors, both Type 0 Positive
and Type 0 Negative. Be-
cause over half the blood or-
dered by hospitals in our re-
gion is Type 0 blood, the de-
mand for that type is grow-
ing. 0 Positive blood can be
'transfused into patients with
any Positive blood type, and
0 Negative is "Universal Do-
nor" blood, meaning it can be
transfused into all patients
regardless of their blood
types.
Therefore, the American
Red Cross will be hosting a
public drive to restore the
blood supply to a safe and
stable level.

Sacred Heart Children's
Hospital has completed con-

Neonatal Intensive Care
Unit (NICU) that features
quieter, more private rooms
for the sickest, most fragile
newborns.
Sacred Heart held a bless-

stroke and recommend treat-
ment.
"Essentially, we are there
without being there in per-
son," says Dr. Rodney Soto,
a vascular neurologist and
director of Sacred Heart's
certified Stroke Center. "The
patients can see us and we
can see them. We can talk to
a physician or nurse on the
other end. We can determine
the type of stroke by looking
at the patient and results of
the brain scan."


ing ceremony on Thursday,

Sacred Heart invested

pand and equip its NICU, the
only one of its kind in North-
west Florida. The expanded
wing represents a trend in


Dr. Soto adds "This is a
wonderful opportunity to
provide the expertise of our
stroke specialists 24 hours a
day to smaller community
hospitals in Northwest
Florida and South Alabama.
This will expand our re-
gional ability to provide
rapid assessment for stroke
patients and others with
acute neurological injuries."

ald Coast. The Stroke Cen-
ter in Pensacola hopes to ex-
pand the program to serve
community hospitals
throughout Northwest
Florida and South Alabama.
The web-based computer
system acquired by Sacred
Heart means Dr. Soto and his
partner, Dr. Terry Neill, can
see and talk to the stroke
patient, his family and the
local Emergency Department
physician via a web camera.
They can perform the
online consultations from a
portable laptop computer,.
even when they are at home
or on the road.
The online evaluations also
will allow Dr. Soto and Dr.
Neill to quickly make recom-
mendations to emergency de-
partment physicians. at re-
mote hospitals. In some
cases, the recommendation
will be to transport the pa-
tient via ground ambulance
or air ambulance to a stroke
center.
In the case of stroke, time
saved in transporting pa-
'tients is especially critical, as
the sooner a patient receives
proper treatment for stroke,
the better the chances for re-
covery. Most strokes or


"brain attacks" are caused
when a blood clot travels to
small blood vessels in the
brain and block blood flow to
the brain. There are
procedures and drugs that
can remove the clots, but the
treatments must begin
within a few hours of stroke
symptoms.
As a result, many hospitals
have been unable to utilize
one of the treatments for
stroke a drug called tPA -
because it must be given
within a three-hour window.
Also, the clot busting drug
is not recommended unless
the diagnosis is made by a
physician with expertise in
the diagnosis of stroke, in-
cluding expertise in reading
CT scans of the brain. That's
where Sacred Heart's new
system will help patients in
small hospitals that don't
have stroke expertise.
Dr. Neill said Sacred
Heart's Stroke Center will
adopt the REACH system
(Remote Evaluation for
Acute Ischemic Stroke) that
was developed three years
ago at the Medical College of*
Georgia. The system is one
of the few in operation in the
entire United States.


"The system's computer
software is able to combine
live web-based conferencing,
CT imaging and patient data
so we can remotely improve
the quality of stroke care at
rural hospitals throughout
Northwest Florida," Dr. Neill
said. "It is a low cost way of
br inging the stroke special-
is to the patients, even if the
patient is far away."
'Sacred Heart evaluated
several programs for remote
stroke care and decided to
partner with REACHMD, as
it was designed to eliminate
geographic barriers to stroke
care through a web-based
system that will bring spe-
cialized neurological care to
hospitals in our region," said
Dr. Paul Baroco, chief medi-
cal officer for Sacred Heart
Health System.
"REACHMD has been op-
erational at the Medical Col-
lege of Georgia for three
years and has improved
stroke outcomes in that re-
gion since its inception."

service," said Ron Mosley,
flight program director for
AIRHeart. "Air Methods is
the largest provider of air

Marianna, Fla. In June of
this year, the AIRHeart base

Practical skills being


promoted at Walton High


Educational experiences at
Walton High School promote
practical skills with real-
world savvy as well as schol-
arly subjects aimed at pre-
paring on e for collegiate en-
deavors. A new nine-week
course offered this school
year emphasizes the impor-
tance of recognizing, evalu-
ating, and managing sports
related injuries. The course
"Care and Prevention ofAth-
letic Injuries" is offered at
WHS and only a select few,
other high schools in the
United States.
This new elective teaches


current philosophies, proce-
dures and practices related
to the care and prevention of
athletic injuries and a funda-
mental understanding of the
duties of an athletic trainer.
Students enrolled in the
class also perfect skills of
applying tape and wrap to
ankles, knees, ribs, shoul-
ders, elbows and wrists.
This incredible opportu-
nity is available at WHS be-
cause of the commitment and
support of Cramer Products,
a company involved in sports
medicine and athletic train-
ing room supplies. As a spon-

as an unequalled source of
cutting edge information for
the instructor Stan
Bosenberg. According to Mr.
Bosenberg, "This course is a
positive addition to Walton's
elective choices, giving the
students an opportunity to
explore sports medicine as a
possible career."
Devin Richardson, a sopho-
more at WHS said, "This is a
great class for athletes and
students planning on pursu-
' ing a career in the athletic
field. As a varsity softball
pitcher, I learned important
ways-such as stretches and
exercises-to help me prevent
future injuries and prepare
for future games."

HOUSING


FROM FRONT


through low-interest, forgivable loans, was designed to en-
courage developers and builders to partner with local gov-
ernments in high cost, high growth counties to build hous-
ing for Florida's workforce. The funding is essentially a grant.
The Florida Housing Finance Corporation, the agency that
administers CWHIP and other state housing programs and
establishes criteria such as AMI, ranked Walton County as
the fourth highest-cost county in the state and as the third
highest growth county.
"The state housing authority definitely recognizes
workforce housing in Walton County as a top priority," said
Jeff Sharkey, a Tallahassee-based grant consultant and ex-
pert in affordable and workforce, housing. "The extraordi-
narily broad range of community partners who came together
to support this project was one of several factors that strongly
influenced the housing authority's decision to fund it."
He added that the willingness of the partners,to provide
their services for free was also highly influential.' Sharkey
also noted that the unique community partnerships that,have
emerged statewide through the CWHIP funding initiative

have inspired the state legislature to consider funding
CWHIP again, perhaps even increasing it.
"CWHIP is invaluable in areas in Northwest Florida like
Walton County that have experienced rapid growth. Wolf
Creek Village sets a high standard for what we need to do
for workforce and affordable housing. It's a classic example
of how the public and private sectors can work together, and
it demonstrates that we can create new affordable housing
for first-time homebuyers and essential personnel like po-
lice officers, teachers, nurses and technicians. It can serve
as an example all over the state," said Sen. Durell Peaden,
District 2.
"Affordable housing is a critical component of.Northwest,
Florida's economy, and I strongly support CWHIP with its
noble cause. Wolf Creek is going to allow people to live closer
to their jobs, improve quality of life, reduce traffic conges-
tion, and strengthen our sense of community. State govern-
ment has every incentive to be a key partner in local afford-
able housing initiatives, and I look forward to seeing future
funding for similar projects," said Rep. Ray Sansom, Dis-
trict 4.

tion to Wolf Creek Village, P.O. Box 1616, Santa Rosa Beach.

(BDSF) major fundraiser of
the year will be on Saturday,
February 3, from 7 a.m. until
1 p.m., and it's big. Big
enough that Winn Dixie is
providing the much-heeded
shopping carts. Clary-Glenn
Funeral Homes is lending
two tents so the sale can be
held rain or shine at 295
Juniper Lake Road. The huge
garage sale will raise money
for the construction of the
Foundation's Friendship
House.
The items for the sale
currently occupy more than
four storage buildings and
the event promises to be a
bargain-hunter's dream.
With complimentary coffee in
hand, yard sale enthusiasts
will appreciate the
organization of items in
department-store style.
Clothing will be sorted and
sized for easy browsing. Last
minute donations include a
large variety of building
supplies.
In addition to the sale, a
silent auction with "no
reserve" will be held for
collectibles, large appliances
and furniture. At noon, the
sealed bids will be opened
and the highest bidder
contacted.
Donations of items to sell
will be accepted until the
afternoon on Friday,
February 2. Fundraiser
Bricks will be available for
purchase either in honor or
memory of friends and loved
ones. Monetary donations are
always appreciated.
According to members,
BDSF continues to work to
Raise funds for the
construction of the
Friendship House, a place for
caregivers and clients. The
building will offer not only a
safe place for clients and
support for caregivers, but
also a wealth of information
for the community.
The land has been
donated, the plans approved
and the only thing needed to
make the Friendship House
a reality is the funding to
complete the project.
Everyone is invited to visit
the garage sale and find a
bargain, purchase a brick,


make a donation or see the
plans for the new building.
BDSF members say that
interest and support will
transform the blueprints into
a building.

addresses


Rotarians


Bobbye S. Wicke recently
talked to DeFuniak Springs
Rotarians about her life and
her family's rich history. Lo-
cals should recognize Wicke
by her maiden name Sikes.
She is the oldest daughter of
former Congressman Robert
L.F. "Bob" Sikes. Wicke spoke
about several areas of her
life, which including her ex-
perience as an ombudsman,
volunteering to inspect the
nursing homes in our area
each year while investigating
any complaints, and also her
own experience with
Alzheimer's disease. Accord-
ing to Wicke, 70-90 percent
of nursing home residents
suffer some dementia prob-
lems.
Her book, Justice Denied,
tells the story of Bob Sikes'
long struggle- with

The Northwest Florida
Water Management District
Governing Board agreed this
week to provide $3 million to
help the city of Freeport de-
velop wastewater reuse. The
upgrade of the city wastewa-
ter treatment plant would
help limit long-term ground
water withdrawals in an
area experiencing rapid
growth and declining ground
water levels. It would also
treat wastewater to a high
enough standard to irrigate
public access areas, such as
roadside landscaping and
golf courses, and thus reduce
wastewater effects on ground
water and the nearby
Choctawhatchee Bay.
"Freeport is within a 'Wa-
ter Resource Caution. Area'
and the District has made
continuing investments in


Alzheimer's disease and the
family's years of court
battles. Congressman Sikes
was once the most powerful
figure in the Florida pan-
handle.
Wicke encouraged the
Rotarians to make sure that
they and their parents make
legal arrangements now to
circumvent any future legal
issues. Everyone should have
a will, she said a living will,
and a medical power of attor-
ney. Dementia escalates at
varying degrees and is some-
times not diagnosed until it
is too late to make arrange-
ments for one's care and fi-
nances.
The Rotary Club meets
each Wednesday at noon at
McLain's Steak House. Visi-
tors and prospective mem-
bers are welcome.

sustaining the region's water
resources," said District Ex-
ecutive Director Douglas E.
Barr. "This initiative will
help meet potable water
needs for this growing area
for decades to come. Addi-
tionally, it is expected to
complement long-term ef-
forts of the District and local
governments to protect wa-
ter quality within
Chactawhatchee Bay."
The funds would help con-
struct about 10 miles of re-
claimed water distribution
lines, a 750,000 gallon stor-
age tank, as well as a central
control system that will be
able to monitor water qual-
ity, make adjustments and
control output of the system.

EVERYTHING NEW IS OLD AGAIN

AN ANCIENT TRADE STILL GOING STRONG


By BRUCE COLLIER
Andrew "Andy" deGruchy has made a successful business
out of one of the world's oldest materials "hydraulic lime."
DeGruchy Masonry Restoration, based in Quakertown, PA,
was recently in DeFuniak Springs restoring the brick work
on a hundred-year-old local building, just off of Baldwin Av-
enue. DeGruchy and his assistants could be seen most days,
moving up and down the walls, putting the bricks back to
their old form. The job of restoration goes far beyond simple
repair ordinary modern ("Portland") cement will do that.
DeGruchy's task was to return the building's brick structure
to the way it was originally built. That takes special train-
ing.
Specifically, it took three years at the Williamson Free
School of Mechanical Trades, located in Media, PA. DeGruchy
heard of the school when he was pondering what to do after
high school. College was financially impracticable.
"I asked myself, if money didn't matter, what would I want
to do?" said deGruchy. He decided that working with his
hands "sounded neat," so he began the application process.
Founded in 1888, Williamson gets about 600 applicants per
year for its three-year courses of study carpentry, masonry,
horticulture, machine trades, paint and coatings, and power
plant. About 95 students are chosen each year, based on geo-
graphical location, financial need, and references. Tuition,
room and board are all providedty the school. Even so, "they
lose about a third," said deGruchy.
The school combines classroom and workshop instruction,
with upperclassmen participating in actual site projects in
the area. The students go to mandatory chapel, do k.p. duty,
follow a dress code and keep curfews. There's even a school
uniform, white jumpsuits.
"We looked like milkmen," said deGruchy.
By the end of three years, graduates have a high chance of
employment in their respective trade fields. DeGruchy gradu-
ated in 1982, and went to work first with his own business,
then working for two different contractors. He found the con-

town DeFuniak Springs. :
struction business "volatile," and did not see a high level of respect for his craft. 8
He decided to go into the masonry restoration business, and is still at it after 22i
years. Historical buildings have a lot of intricate detail work that is missing from:i
modern structures, and restoration requires "special care."
Beginning with an old farmhouse, deGruchy began restoring other buildings,
attending conferences and studying old techniques. He learned the different mate-
rials used in constructing buildings, and the difference between Portland cement, a
widely-used material that is unsuitable for restoring old buildings, and hydraulic
lime, a processed lime that masons have been using since before the Roman Em-

pire. DeGruchy imports his lime
from the Perigord region in
France, site of numerous Ro-
man ruins that incorporate the
ancient building material.
DeGruchy has deep roots in
France. His family comes from
Normandy, and one of his ances-
tral uncles was Emmanuel,
Marquis de Grouchy, a Marshal
of France who fought for Napo-
leon at Waterloo. DeGruchy
makes regular trips to France
to visit Saint Astier Natural Hy-
draulic Lime, the company that
produces the lime he imports.
In addition to his current
work in DeFuniak Springs,
deGruchy's restoration work
can be seen in Pennsylvania,
Delaware, New Jersey, and
Puerto Rico. Name projects in-

venues nationwide.
While in the area, he also paid
a visit to Louisiana, including a
high school with a moisture prob-
lem in Baton Rouge and a visit to
New Orleans, to see what resto-
ration can be done there.
DeGruchy's project in DeFu-

few weeks. From there he moved

tunity to attend a market in
New York that one day she
would open her own retail
business.
Adams attended two years
of school at Valencia Commu-
nity College in Orlando and
after returning home worked
in the accounting department
at Rivard Realty for three
years. After staying home for
two years being wife and
mother, she decided it was

The fourth cycle of the Northwest Florida Water Man-
agement District's Florida Forever Capital Improvement
Grant program yielded the highest number of proposals
to date, more than doubling the applications of previous
years. In all, 28 proposals were ranked according to their
water resource protection and restoration benefits and 15
projects across the District were awarded almost $5.9 mil-
lion by the governing board.
"This program is clearly valuable to communities, since
they leverage significant local funding and in-kind ser-
vices to obtain grant funds for water resource projects,"
said Douglas E. Barr, the District's Executive Director.
"Over several years,.the district has contributed about $15
million in grant funding towards projects for which total
costs were estimated at over $51 million," he said.
Of the grants awarded, three were for projects proposed
within Washington County. These include a total of
$262,500 and $450,000 for stabilization and sediment con-
trol projects at Chain Lake Road and river Road respec-
tively. These projects are expected to abate sedimentation
now affecting Pine Log Creek and the Choctawhatchee
River. Another $200,000 was awarded to the city of Vernon
to retrofit an existing stormwater discharge and improve
water quality entering Holmes Creek. Additionally,
$495,000 was awarded for a cooperative effort by regional
soil and water conservation districts to implement sedi-
ment control projects at road crossings in Jackson, Holmes,
and Washington counties.
The City of Port St. Joe was awarded $300,000 to con-
struct a stormwater treatment pond on Fourth Street and
improve the quality of runoff reaching St. Joe Bay from a
portion of the city's downtown. Also, Calhoun County was
awarded $793,109 to stabilize John Redd Road and re-
duce sedilnentation now affecting the Apalachicola River.

It is good news about a new
community. Jesus com-
manded His disciples to love
one another as He had loved
them. And He loved them as
the Father loved Him. His
community was to be lead
always by His Holy Spirit.

This is the essence of the
Church. It is a new commu-
nity of believers who are
gathered in, and express the


BY DR. ROBERT M. JAYE
In Ephesians 3:8, Paul
writes that he "should preach
among the Gentiles the
unsearchable riches of
Christ." He was a gospel
preacher. What is the gospel,
the unsearchable riches of
Christ? The first four books
of the New Testament are
called the gospels, the stories
of good news about the
Christ.
, It is good news about a new
relationship between God
and mankind. Into the world
of uncertainty and confusion
came Jesus the Christ. He
brought liberation and accep-
tance to anyone who would


confess the reality of the
Christ, believing Him to be
the Savior, the Son of God. He
participated in all the temp-
tations and events normal to
human life, yet without sin.
It is good news about a new
way of life. The New Testa-
ment is filled with the proc-
lamation that new life is pos-
sible by the grace of God.

Life in the Christian sense
is not just belonging to an in-
stitution or accepting a
theological creed or a certain
type of behavior. It is a living
realtionship with a living
Person, the Lord Jesus
Christ.

Paxton rallies past Walton 55-48


By PATRICK CASEY
Paxton used a tenacious
defense to force 30 turnovers
from the Walton Braves as
they swept the season series
with a 55-48 victory at the
Walton High School
gymnasium.
Walton (19-6) held a 24-22
lead at the half as the Braves
patiently attacked Paxton
with outside shots while
holding the Bobcats to 8-of-
22 shooting from the floor.
Paxton's tactics changed at
the start of the second half as
the Bobcats used the half-
court trap to force 18 second
half turnovers, leading to
easy baskets in transition
and-a 41-34 lead after three
quarters of play.


Walton tried to rally, but
could not close the gap
enough, before time ran out.
The Braves got 16 points
from senior Jesse Tucker.
Paxton (23-2) had three
players in double figures as
Maryllyn Gilbert scored 20
points with Breezy Zorn and
Tareisa Reese adding 12
apiece.

round of the District 1, Class
3A girls basketball

Jackson's shot lifts Walton past Catholic


By PATRICK CASEY
Larel Jackson banked in a
12-foot jumper with one
second remaining in the
game as Walton defeated
Pensacola Catholic 86-84 in
a District 1, Class 3A boys
basketball game.
The game see-sawed back
and forth in the second half
of play as both squads shot
the ball extremely well from
the floor and free throw line
in staging a classic battle in
the series. Walton rallied
from a 15-7 first quarter
deficit to cut the margin to


38-35 at the half.
The two squads combined
for 97 second half points, with
Walton outscoring the
Crusaders 51-46 to pull out
the home victory. Five
players from each team
scored in double figures, a
rarity in a high school
basketball game.

from Jackson while Sydney
McGhee added 17 and Craig
Brooks tallied 13. Shadler
Roehm has a strong second
half as he finished with 11
points, as did Dylan Laird,

FISH DAY


in the first half when Walton
was struggling to find their
offensive game.
Pensacola Catholic got 21
points from Kyle Sarra while
Gavin MacNeil added 20.
Tim Dzaidon had a second
half similar to Walton's
Roehm, as he pumped in 15
points on the night, with all
but one in the second half.
Tim Ammons added 12 while
Mark Gibson had 11 in the
losing effort.
Walton seemed to have the
game put away late, as the
Braves built a six point lead-
in the final minutes, but a
few missed free throws
combined with accurate
perimeter shooting allowed
Catholic to chip the lead


down to two points. The
Crusaders came up with a
crucial steal with 20 seconds

instead.
Shula had a rough past
season at Alabama, where
after he went 10-2 in 2005,
dropped to a 6-6 record in
2006. Even though the win-
ning streak was on his side,
never in the four years at
Alabama, did he defeat intr-
astate rival Alabama or LSU.
He was fired in November
following the Alabama Au-
burn game.
A salary has not yet been
disclosed.


one of the highest scoring
games in history between the
two teams. The winning team
had not reached 70 points in
the previous 27 games.
Walton was 33-of-59 from the
floor and 14-of-23 at the free
throw line. Catholic shot
extremely well themselves,
hitting 29-of-55 shots from
the floor and 22-of-29 from
the free throw line. Walton


took advantage of 6-foot-5 :
center David Kooi fouling out
of the contest midway thru
the fourth period. Though
Kooi, the junior starting
quarterback for the
Crusaders football team, i
scored only four points, he
consistently provided
rebounds for the Crusader
offense while he was on the
floor.

the world. On Feb, 4, Lovie
Smith, head football coach of
the Chicago Bears, and Tony
Dungy, head football coach of
.the Indianapolis Colts, will
face off on Sunday for Super
Bowl XLI.
Both coaches have served
their time as assistant
coaches for more than 20
years, and both are ready for
the challenge.
This is what many would
call .an appropriate time for
the two coaches to make his-
tory. Black History month is
als6 in February and now the
black community will have
even more to celebrate.
Dungy began his climb to
the top spot when he became
an assistant coach in 1981.
There were just a few black
coaches in the NFL, but none
in the head coaching posi-
tion.
The players in both the
AFC and NFC were predomi-
nately black, with the excep-
tion of the quarterbacks.
Dungy said he noticed that
the teams, despite the num-


season, he and Lovie Smith
did just that. Smith, along
with Herm Edwards and Rod
Marinelli, who is white, are
among the current head
coaches who came from the
Dungy dynasty and were
hired under his command.
In 1996, Dungy got his
chance at being head football
coach when he took over the
helm of the Tampa Bay Buc-
caneers.
When he left for India-
napolis, he had his own
agenda and wanted the Colts
to play football like they
knew how to play football.
On Jan. 21, they did just that
by staging the greatest come-
back in conference champi-
onship history and earning a
trip to the big game for the
first time in 36 years.
Dungy kept a close eye on
the scorebaord throughout
the game and at the half saw
the 21-3 deficit, but did not
worry. He just began to plot
his next move. He knew the
team had to make one last
lunge at a score and with sec-


But with all the excitement
centered around Dungy,
there is another man that
has made history and is tak-
ing his team to face-off with
his mentor and icon. On the
other side of the field is the
Chicago Bears and head foot-
ball coach Lovie Smith, who
is making history as well.
Lovie Smith is celebrating
the Bears' win over New Or-
leans for the NFC champion-
ship.
Despite fans screaming
and yelling that quarterback
Rex Grossman should be
pulled from the line-up,
Smith stuck with him
through his ups and downs.
It paid off in their runaway
game against New Orleans
for the NFC title.
When he first came to Chi-
cago in 2004, after serving as
the defensive coordinator for
the St. Louis Rams, he made
it a commitment to himself
and every team member to
lose the love handles. He put
the team on a strict diet, ex-
ercise and hitting the gym.


As far as sticking with
Grossman through thick and
thin, he pulled out two in-
credible games where he had
a solid 228 yards in passing
against Seattle in the open-
ing round of the play-offs and
then during the New Orleans
game were he pegged four
touchdowns in the second
half of the game to put the
Saints away and seal a con-
fident bid for the Super Bowl.
After their game against
New Orleans, Smith hugged
Grossman and told him that
he loved him and knew what
a challenging year it had
been for him as the Bears'
quarterback.

One other coach that has
made NFL history is Mike
Tomlin, who was hired by
the Pittsburgh Steelers as
their new head football
coach. It is the first time in
the team's 74 year history
they have selected a black
leader. Tomlin also got his
start under Dungy.

A total of26,200 feet ofstate-designated

large-scale project of this nature.

"The last grain of sand for

Council, announced to the

DRI now

'good to go'

By DOTTY NIST
Just approved in final
form for 650 dwelling units
on 80 acres along CR-30A
near Camp Creek is the
SProminence development of
regional impact (DRI).
A previous phase of the
Prominence development
was approved in 2004. Con-
struction has thus far been
limited to the south side of
CR-30A, but the new ap-
proval will set the stage for
expansion to the north side
of the development property.'
Prominence is bordered on
the east and west by the.St.
Joe Company's WaterSound
project.
"Tommy's taken one step
forward and two back," attor-
ney and Prominence spokes-
person George Ralph Miller
commented on Jan. 23, refer-
ring to Prominence developer
Tommy Henry of Deer Lake
Development Company.
Consideration of the new


shoal served as the sand
source from which sand was
dredged, transported and
pumped onto the eroded
beachfront area.
Plans for the over $19-mil-
lion project had begun over
seven years ago.
In Walton County, the
project added from 75 to 100
feet of beach to the approxi-
mately five-mile-long project
area. It was funded through


tourist bed tax collections,
state grants, and a loan to be
repaid through future, bed
tax revenues.
The' project has been a
joint effort of Walton County
and the City of Destin, where
two miles of beachfront re-
mains to be restored, with
that work expected to begin
in April.
In addition, Walton
County is now proceeding
with plans to restore an ad-'
ditional 12.9 miles of criti-
cally eroded beachfront along
the CR-30A corridor. Suit-
able offshore sand deposits
have been identified, and
county commissioners re-
cently approved a scope of
services for engineering work
to obtain permits for a sec-
ond large-scale beach resto-
ration project.

Partial human

discovered in


Miramar Beach


The Walton County Sheriff's
Office (WCSO) is investigating
the discovery of partial human re-
mains found in Miramar Beach
on the morning of Sunday. Jan.
28. at around 10:30am. A tour-
ist, who was out on a nature walk
east of Four Mile Village, came
across something suspicious near
a sand dune. H e
thought it might be a human skull,
but wasn't sure and immediately
contacted the sheriff's office to be
sure. Deputies arrived on the
scene, confirmed it was a human
skull and immediately initiated a
crime scene.
Crime scene investigators
searched the area and removed
the skull. The skull was report-
edly found approximately 50
yards from where, in 2005, a
headless body was found.
WCSO public information of-
ficer Lt. Brian Maule said that the
2005 body had been found on
May 27. but declined to confirm
or deny its identity.
The public record indicates
that on May 27. 2005, WCSO
personnel olund the remains of
John M. Kennan. 55. in a dune
area east of Sandestin. Kennan
had reportedly been missing since
May 4.
Maule would only confirm
that the 2005 case is still consid-
cred "open." He did state that the
investigators made a thorough
search of the area at that time, and
no head was found.
It is unknown how the head
came to be separated from the
body but there were indications

tion and identity confirmation vii

Troubles on the


By Leah Stratmann
Users of the multi-path
trail that wanders
throughout the southern part
of Walton County continue to
be discouraged by what they
consider to be a lack of
continuity of maintenance
and a failure of law
enforcement to keep vehicles
off the path.
"The lion's share of issues
are construction and
development related," said
Dan McClary a frequent user
of the Timpoochee Trail, some
18 and a half miles of path
that is dedicated for multiple
uses, excluding motorized
vehicles. McClary points to
the Andante Penthouses
development as just one
example where construction
encroaches on the ability of
people to use the path.
"I went by there last week.
There were four or five port-

When Les Hallman left to
begin a new job in
Tallahassee leaving the
South Walton Fire District
without a chief, the district
posted the job in professional
publications. The posting
resulted in 57 applicants,
according to deputy chief
Sean Hughes.
"The applicants are local
and from south and central
Florida, plus a couple from
out of state," Hughes said. A
screening committee
composed of Destin chief
Tuffy Dixon, Sylvia Hanks,
head of human resources at
Sandestin and fire board
member Jack Abbitt whittled
down the large pool of
applicants to seven. "I believe
they developed a scoring and

objects within four feet of the
path, which is in direct
opposition to the guidelines
in the Florida Bicycle
Facilities Planning and
Design Handbook. The book,
known as the green book,
addresses facilities planning
and design for multi-use
paths," McClary said.
"We don't have a problem
with people developing their
property, but that does not
give them the right to destroy
public property and block the
public right of way," he said.

make an offer to one of them
by the time the regular fire
board meeting starts at 5
p.m.," Hughes noted. Both
the all day interviewing and
the regular meeting are open
to the public.
Hallman departed in mid-
January and since then
Hughes has assumed some of
the duties of the chief, but he
did not apply for the top job.

Friends of the Timpoochee

"The county hired Base
Services to maintain the
path. There is a lot of
overhanging vegetation that
has never been cut down. We
saw improvement for about a
month and we made a long
list of issues which were
noted by Base Services owner
Randall Talley in a July walk
through of the trail, but he
has never delivered on his
promises to date," McClary
said. "I believe the company
hired to maintain the path
may be getting some close
scrutiny from the county."
Further, McClary said one
agency within the county will
point the finger at another
agency to enforce codes and
so forth. "We stay in an

and so forth. There are some
aspects of the chief's job that
I wouldn't enjoy doing, while
I very much enjoy the
position I have now," he said.
Hughes noted that one of
the practices he has
implemented is having the
administrative personnel
ride a fire truck once a
month. "I ride as a firefighter
one day a month. Having a
hose in my hand is where my
heart lies. Last month when
I was riding, we had a fire in
Freeport and the crew let me
spray water," he laughed.

The next meeting of the
fire board open at 9:30 a.m.
to interview fire chief
candidates. The regular
meeting begins at 5 p.m.

McClary noted that large
sections of the path are still

knowledge no citations are

In addition to cars on the

there are an increasing
number of signs being erected

that a plant community pro-

He added that the devel-

WAGES


Water costs money...

FROM FRONT don't waste it!


administration staff and
laborers vary, as do the
percentage raises among
individual employees.
Typically, the salaries are set
to take effect on October 1 of
each year and are, by
ordinance, supposed to be the
result of many hours of
diligent study on the part of
the human resources
director, based on supervisor
recommendations and
performance evaluations,
which are then submitted for
approval to the Walton
County Commission.
What do the records show?
That's part of the problem.
According to a county
spokesperson, the records
themselves may be incorrect
and they don't yet know
whether the mistake was in
their transmission to the
WCTA or came after the
information was received and
posted online. It also wasn't
clear in just what way the
records may be incorrect.
According to 2006-2007
county data requested and
published by the WCTA on
the 2006-2007 budget year,
the commissioners approved
a cost-of-living raise of four
percent for all employees,
plus a step raise for
qualifying non-exempt staff
(such as a maintenance
worker, secretary or 9-1-1
dispatcher) and up to a seven
percent raise for the rest from
the 2006 level.
However, WCTA records
indicate that some employees
may have received much
larger increases without
having to perform additional
duties. One paramedic
working in DeFuniak
Springs saw a 20.69 percent
raise and a building inspector
II received a 25.73 percent
raise. An equipment operator
II received a 34.97 percent


raise, while another
equipment operator II got a
7.06 percent raise instead.
There are examples of other
disparities, too. One
maintenance worker got
more than a 38 percent raise,
while an administrative
assistant got more than 37
percent. The biggestjump for
non-exempt employees was a
50 percent raise for two
technicians:
Most raises were more
modest, averaging between
6-10 percent, though many
were in the teens and above.
Some employees got only a
cost of living increase, one
equipment operator II
received only a 3.99 percent
raise.
Salaries. for a variety of
exempt positions
(supervisors, administrators
and managers) might also
surprise some citizens.
According to the figures
obtained by WCTA, a public
relations manager salary
went up over 30 percent from
the 2006 level to $61,000 for
2007. Yet that's a modest
jump compared to that of a
Zone 2 project manager, who
went from $31,000 to
$55,000, racking up a 74
percent raise in one year. A
grant technician and a
foreman both got a 69 percent
increase in salary. In fact, for
exempt employees, no raise
was less than 15 percent, the
amount afforded to the
county administrator who
will make $113,480 in 2007.
One question for citizens is
whether the county can,
under its own guidelines,
award 74-percent raises in a
single year's time. Also, what
would merit 40, 50 and 60
percent raises'?
Linda Robinson, a senior
official with the county's
human resources depart-


ment, the WCTA's records
may be wrong. Robinson said
that she had noticed some
errors on the printed copy of
the records that she had been
shown by WCTA member Bob
Hudson. "I didn't have a
chance to identify every error
I saw at the time and we don't
know if the mistakes were on
our part or his. Errors on
spread sheets are easy to
make," she said. Robinson
did not mention any specific
mistakes but indicated that
there were some on the
WCTA documents.
Robinson said Walton
County Human. Resources
has launched a second
internal records report that
will identify any digital or
typographical errors that
may currently appear on the
records published by the.
WCTA. She noted that for the
2007 fiscal year, the
commissioners had approved
a four percent COLA increase
across the board and
additional merit increases of
up to seven percent, for an
approximate total raise of
about 11 percentage points.
As for records that seem to
indicate much higher raises,
Robinson said that multiple
promotions or job transfers
for an employee in a single
year might explain some
differences. She said their
human resources office is
currently working on
compiling the information a
second time and that she
hopes to have the report
finished by the end of the
week.
If errors were made
regarding the actual raises
themselves, the
commissioners would be
faced with the unpopular
task of reducing raises to
their correct levels and
recovering any overages.

Movie Review


"The Queen" a royal

vehicle for Mirren


By BRUCE COLLIER
If you follow the Oscars, you
will have read that British ac-
tress Helen Mirren is the book-
makers' choice to take home
the Best Actress award this
year. No stranger to the nomi-
nees' list, Mirren is up this
time for her performance as
Queen Elizabeth II in Stephen
Frears' "The Queen."
This is Dame Helen's first
time in the Best Actress cat-
egory, her previous two nomi-
nations heving been for the
supporting roles. To complete
the trivia, Mirren has also
played the first Queen Eliza-
beth the redhaired one with
Shakespeare and all the fancy
gowns in a motion picture of
the same name.
This movie is'Mirren, from
start to finish. The only diver-
sions from her performance
come from Michael Sheen as
Prime Minister Tony Blair,
and the image of the late Prin-
cess Diana, played by Diana
herself in news footage and by
French actress and Diana
lookalike Laurence Burg in
tabloid-ish scenes.
The film'covers a short pe-
riod, from Blair's election as
Labour party prime minister,
through the week of Diana's
death and funeral, and a few
months later. If you know
nothing else about Elizabeth -
her age, length of reign, up-
bringing, and domestic situa-
tion you probably know about
Diana's death.
Viewed by many as the
wronged party in her divorce
from Prince Charles, Diana's
untimely end in a Paris car
crash elicited a -nationwide
outburst of grief. Along with
the grief came a desire for the
queen to make a gesture. She
does what protocol demands,
and nothing more.
When Blair, speaking at a
news conference, calls Diana
"the people's princess," a line
is drawn between Elizabeth
and her subjects. At first, the
queen's behavior seems cold,
even callous. As the film
progresses, Frears and Mirren
lead us little by little behind
the royal mask and into.the
monarch's reasons and moti-
vations.
Or at least, it's an educated


speculation, since much of
what the public learns about
the House of Windsor seems to
have come from outside the
house.
Some of the best scenes in
the film are those of Elizabeth
by herself. She favors long
walks, accompanied by her
Corgis and the usual body-
guards through the high-
lands around Balmoral. Her
most intimate conversations,
with her mother, husband,
and son, have a roundabout
quality, with the occasional
telling remark woven into the
chit-chat.
Prince Philip, played by
American actor James
Cromwell, and Prince Charles,
played by Alex Jennings, come
off pretty much as the media
portrays them. Philip is a
brusque drone, and Charles a
well-intentioned, hand-wring-
ing nonentity.
Welsh-born- actor Michael
Sheen has a lot of charm and
Irish good looks as Blair. Blair
comes off better than anyone
in the film. He skillfully walks
the line between his anti-mo-
narchical Labour constituency
and the conservative palace
Asset, and finds himself increas-
ingly sympathetic to the
queen. The real Blair might
consider using clips from "The
Queen" when seeking re-elec-
tion.
Sheen and Mirren have
some great scenes together,
especially their first meeting.
British tradition requires a
newly-elected prime minister
to be formally invited by the
monarch to "form a govern-
ment." Further, the minister
literally kneels before-the.sov-
ereign to receive it. You can
almost feel Blair's awkward-
ness as he kneels in his busi-
ness suit to get the royal nod.
"You are my tenth prime
.minister," says Elizabeth to
Blair. "The first was Winston
Churchill."

Only one person on earth
can get away with a line like
that. If Elizabeth didn't actu-
ally say it, she ought to have
said it. Mirren gives us far
more than an impersonation,
she gives us an essence, which
is the actor's abiding aim

Looking for Newton's Knox Hill Academy



County GIS to create



overlay of historic sites


By JEFFREY POWELL
"By locating and recording
these historical sites we are
letting a legacy live on for
future generations," said
Geographic Information
System (GIS) technician Jody
Mitchem.
Mitchem and the Walton
County GIS department are
part of an incentive
instigated by County
Commissioner Scott Brannon
to locate and record historic
sites in the county.
Two of the, first sites
recorded are the locations.of
the Knox Hill Academy.
Early Scottish settlers knew
the value of an education and
embraced the opportunity to
interview 'an Amherst
College educated
Pennsylvanian named John
Newton to teach the youth of
the area.
Newton had- been'in
Pensacola during the fall.of


1848 looking for an
institution in which to teach.
Word of mouth lead him to
Euchee Valley and a meeting
with local leaders.
Newton was hired and the
locals built the first academy
near the present intersection
of Knox Hill and Pusley roads
according to local historian
William Steadly-Campbell.
Things went well for the
Academy until 1854 when a
disagreement .arose
concerning curriculum. The
dispute went from bad to
worse and Newton decided to
leave the academy, and go to
California.
SBy 1859, Newton was back
in the Valley and teaching at
the new Academy, located
approximately one mile to
the north of the original
location. A marker on ,this
Location was all but destroyed
years ago by logging
equipment.


The Academy, as well as the
rest of the country, was
disrupted again by the Civil
War. Newton,. a staunch
abolitionist, and opponent of
secession taught for the first
three years of the war, but
resigned and went again to
California.
In 1866, he resumed
teaching at the Academy, only
to leave again a year later.
Newton later lived on
Santa Rosa Sound near what
is known today as Mary
Esther, which is named after
his daughters.
"I am excited about this
project," Brannon Said. "The
county has no real official
historical reference."
GIS Manager Harold
Bigham agrees. "This is very
valuable for the future,"
Bigiam said. "Once the data
is collected the school system
could access the info and use
it'in the classroom."

Black History
Month has been
slated to celebrate
the diversity of life
within the African-
American commu-
nity. This year, the
community seems to
have even more to
celebrate than just
the past.

The month of February has
been slated Black History
Month all across the nation.
Celebrations for the lives of
civil rights leaders such as
Malcolm X and Dr. Martin
Luther King will be cel-
ebrated all across the nation
and in every form and fash-
ion.
From parades and dedica-
tions, to television specials
and Broadway productions,
the month-long event calen-
dar is quickly filling up.
The African-American
community is making history
this month with riot just re-
membering the past and
what they have come
through, but what black lead-
ers, politicians-and athletes
are doing.
For the first time in history
in the NFL, two black head

('~ LLIALK


football coaches will lead
their teams into a Super
Bowl. Indianapolis Colts
coach Tony Dungy and Chi-
cago Bears head football
coach Lovie Smith, are re-
writing the history books and
bringing their talents for
coaching to the sidelines this
Sunday..
The Pittsburgh Steelers
are also breaking ground and
tradition, as they prepare for
Mike Tomlin to take over the
helm as the first black head
football coach in the team's
74-year history.
On the sports scene, black
athletes have continued to
dominate professional
sports, but a few years ago,
the name Tiger Woods was
being mentioned in the pres-
tigious halls of the Masters
and the PGA tournament
locker rooms. Now the multi-


. i I i L"I


millionaire is on the top of
the game, the most revered
golfer on the board today and
the highest paid golfer in the
PGA history that comes with
the most wins.

Sports is no longer the only
thing that the African-
American community can be
proud of, now it is politics.
Despite him only being in his
30s, a smoker and his middle
name being Huessein
Obama has been
raising eyebrows and has
been causing a stir of excite-
ment in Washington, as well
as, across the United States.
Only having been in the U.S.
Senate for two years, the
democratic hopeful for the
2008 presidency is growing
strong.
It comes at a time that
both the GOP and the Demo-


cratic parties is packed to
the brim with candidates
throwing their hats into the
race for the white house.
Celebrity figures like
Oprah Winfrey have been in
the spotlight for years due to
her show and charities that
have been a big part of her
work. Not only in the black
community, but throughout
the world with the building
of schools and the tireless ef-
forts for education in third-
world countries. She is
joined by a long list of Afri-
can-American celebrities
that are takingboth a politi-
cal and religious stand for
many subjects and causes
that are effecting the nation
and the world today.
With so much to celebrate
over the past several years,
the community, as well as
the entire entertainment
community, mourn the death
of king of funk, James
Brown, who passed away in
late December of 2006. His
legacy and his charitable
givihgs were just recently
uncovered and brought to
the nation's attention.
But just as a great icon
such as Brown passes on,
another great black indi-
vidual will emerge and help
continue the celebration of
Black History Month for
years to come.
