"We are excited to move
forward on this project," said
County Commissioner Scott
Brannon recently while dis-
cussing a $500.000 grant
from the Northwest Florida
Water Management District.
"This grant is the culmina-
tion of efforts by county em-
ployees and citizens alike,"
Brannon continued.
Located off of State Road
81 in eastern Walton County,
Morrison Springs has been


used extensively by divers
and recreational swimmers
for many years. This use has
contributed to erosion prob-
lems that now plague the
springs. Part of the funding
received will provide for des-
ignated parking and walk-
ways that will prevent future
erosion.
The springs were acquired
in 2004 from private owners
by the Florida Department of
Environmental protection.
Later that year the Walton


County Board of County
Commissioners entered into
an agreement to lease and
manage the site.
In addition to parking im-
provements the project will
provide boardwalks compli-
ant to the Americans for Dis-
abilities act, an improved
boat ramp and restroom/
shower facilities.
"This is a chance to show-
case one of Walton Counties
beauties," Brannon con-
cluded.

Freeport resident


slain in line of duty


By BRUCE COLLIER
A January 30 attack on
Mellie McDaniel, 51, wife of
Jackson County Sheriff John
P. McDaniel, resulted in her
death and the deaths of three
others, including a Jackson
County deputy.
McDaniel was reportedly
driving to her home on Hwy.
73 in Marianna in the
evening, when she noticed
that two men were following
her. She telephoned the sher-
iff and asked for help.
The men apparently ap-
proached her as she got out
of her vehicle. Officers were
dispatched to the scene. The
first to arrive was Jackson
County deputy Harold
Michael Altman, 42, of the
Marianna office.
In the ensuing shootout,
Altman was shot and killed.
Sheriff McDaniel and two
other deputies arrived next,
and killed both of the attack-
ers.
The two assailants were
identified as Lionel Sands
and Daniel Brown. Sands
was reportedly a primary
suspect in the death of his
wife, Gail Sands, in 2001.
Sands was never charged,
but the case was deemed an
open homicide.
Both McDaniel and
Altman were buried on Feb-
ruary 3. Altman's funeral
was attended by an esti-
mated 1,000 fellow law en-
forcement officers from all
over Florida and parts ofAla-
bama, turning out in a show
of respect for Altman and
support for his family.
Altman, known as "Mike"
to his family, was described by

By BRUCE COLLIER
Samuel A. McCormick, a
probationary patrol officer
with the DeFuniak Springs
Police Department i DFSPD)
was arrested in Florala on
Feb. 4, on an Alabama felony
charge of first-degree sexual
abuse involving a five-year-
old female child.
Florala Chief of Police
Bruce Maddox said that the
child reported the incident to
her family, which led ulti-
mately to McCormick's ar-
rest.
In a statement issued by
DFSPD, it was reported that
Chief Mike Adkinson had ter-
minated McCormick's em-
ployment. Adkinson said
that he made the decision fol-
lowing a discussion of the
case with Maddox.
Maddox's statement, is-*
sued for the Florala Police
Department, said that Mc-
Cormick had also been em-
ployed "for a brief period of
time" by the Florala Police
Department, but "had been
released from contract in
early 2005."
'In a telephone interview,'
Maddox specified that Mc-
Cormick had resigned on


Oct. 17 of 2005, having been
with the Florala department
since November of 2004:
Maddox declined to com-
ment ,further, but did:say'
that McCormick's resigna-
tion "has nothing to do with:
the present investigation."
Maddox's written state-
men-t said, "it does sadden,
our department to find.that
an officer of the law is in a
position to be charged with
such depravity."
The DFSPD statement.
said "We are in full support
of the Florala Police Depart-
ment for arresting someone
alleged to have committed
such a crime, and truly ap-
plaud their efforts in protect-
ing our most vulnerable citi-
zens; even though it has
sadly affected our agency.",
McCormick was the new-
est member of the DFSPD,
having been hired last
month, McCormick was in,
custody in Covington County
Jail in Andalusia under a
$150,000 bond. but was able
to make the bond and be re-
leased.
Maddox said that pending
further investigation, addi-
tional charges may be
brought.

his mother Madeline as 'very
gentle and likable."
"He tried to give people a
second chance," .she added,
saying that Altman would
even give DUI drivers a
break and drive them home
for their own protection.
Mrs. Altman said that her
son had spent part of the
weekend with her and his fa-
'ther, and had called them
some 30 minutes before he
was killed.
"He told us he loved us."
Altman is survived by a


wife and two stepchildren.
Mellie McDaniel's funeral
services were held in
Calhoun County, just north
of Marianna, on February 3.
As with Altman, hundreds of
law enforcement officers
turned out for the service.
She had worked as a victim's
advocate with with sheriff's
department in abuse cases.
Investigators continue to.
look into possible motives. A
spokesman for the State At-
torney said that the shooting
was "not random."

SUPERVISOR OF ELECTIONS BOBBY BEASLEY with
touch screen voting machine.


WC Board of Elections

wont be affected by

paper trail proposal


By BRUCE COLLIER
Walton County Supervisor
of Elections Bobby Beasley
says that Governor Charlie
Crist's proposal that all state
voting machines supply a pa-
per trail "won't have any ef-
fect" on Walton County's cur-
rent set-up.
"The optical scanners and
touch-screen machines are
certified," said Beasley.
"We're complying with the
laws now."
What would be needed are
state-certified printers,
which would be connected to
the machines. The machines
currently have printers at-
tached, which print out on a
thermal paper roll.
Walton County has what


Beasley calls a "blended sys-
tem" of paper ballots and
touch-screen technology. Tihe
machines include optical
scan and the touch screen
system, Accu-Vote TSX.
Optical scan has the voter
marking a paper ballot,
which is then scanned for re-
cording.
Touch screen takes the voter
step-by-step through the in-
dividual races and candi-
dates on an electronic screen.
The screen can be print-en-
larged and contrast changed
for visually-impaired voters.
A headset with a recorded list
of candidates is also avail-
able. The voter casts votes as

Votes to fund veterans


and section 8 housing


Congressman Allen Boyd
(D), a member of the House
Appropriations Committee
and the House budget Com-
mittee, Tuesday supported
passage of the Fiscal Year
2007 Joint Funding Resolu-
tion, a $463.5 billion mea-
sure that completes last
years appropriations bills.
"Due to the inability of the
Republican leadership to fin-
ish last year's appropriations
work, our federal agencies


and our state and local gov-
ernments have been left in
fiscal limbo for months," said
Congressman Boyd. "This
resolution is not perfect, but
it offers the best option for
moving forward so we can get
started on this year's work
and cleaning up our signifi-
cant budget mess."
Under this measure, most
programs will continue to be
funded at the Fiscal Year
2006 levels, adjusted for in-


creased pay costs. Addition-
ally, said Boyd, the Demo-
cratic leadership was able to
generate $10 billion in sav-
ings in order to increase
funding for critical needs,
such as healthcare for veter-
ans and funding for local law
enforcement programs. This
redistribution of funds was
made within the confines of
the budget resolution that
*the Republicans laid out last
year.
Specifically, the Joint
Funding Resolution would
increase funding for veterans
healthcare by $3.6 billion to
provide healthcare for
325,000 veterans, and fund
31,359 positions at the FBI,
including 12,213 agents and
2,577 intelligence analysts..
It would increase funding for'
Pell Grants by $615 million,
allowing an increase of $260
in the maximum Pell Grant
to $4,310, as well as provid-
ing housing assistance for
227,000 individuals and
families through a $1.4 bil-
lion increase for Section 8
housing programs.
Boyd said, "We can now
turn our attention to the
2008 appropriations bills and
to drafting a 2008 budget
that will reflect the priorities
of the American people and
get our country on better fis-
cal footing."

Rotarians helping children in Jamaica


Michelle Render, a native
of Jamaica and a Rotarian
from Tallahassee recently
shared new information
about the Jamaica Literacy
Project with the DeFuniak
Springs club.
The Jamaica Literacy
Project began about five
years ago and centers on the
two schools in Christiana,
Jamaica. The DeFuniak
Springs Rotary Club has sup-
ported annual trips to Ja-
maica each year. A couple of
years ago, two DeFuniak
Springs members traveled
with the group of 10 to Ja-
maica and worked several
days at the Christiana High


School, putting together 300
donated desks, painting, and
other activities.
Some of the projects that
were completed during the
years in support of literacy
are a $1,000 scholarship
awarded to Yanique, one of
the principal's assistants, so
that she could return to
school for her teaching de-
gree, repairs to the primary
(elementary) School, refrig-
erators for the cafeteria, T.V./
VCR combos for classrooms,
300 textbooks, and shelves
built and painted for the text-
books.
The Florida Rotarians in-
teract and work with the Ja-
maican Rotarians to make


the project feasible. The Pri-
mary School serves grades
one to five with 500 students
and the high school serves
grades six to 11 with approxi-
mately 1,200 students. Due
to the size of the school, the


students attend a half day
from 6 a.m. to noon or from
noon to 6 p.m.
A working trip is planned
for this fall and Render en-
couraged club members to
join the team, if possible. The


Jamaica Literacy Project
meets the club's annual re-
quirements for International
Service. The rotary motto is
"Service above Self."


The Rotary club meets
each Wednesday at noon at
McLain's Steak House. Visi-
tors and prospective mem-
bers are welcome.

It's a big, old


goofy world!

1i RON KELLEY
There are times when it's good to see what other people.
are up to if only to reassure one's self that they are not
alone when it comes to crazy, nutty, and generally bewilder-
ing behavior by seemingly rational adults.
For instance, did you hear that police in Lake Bluff, Illi-
nriis. finally caught up with the 'Pedicure Bandit?' Accord-
ing to Associated Press, the police say a man accused of fail-
ing to pay for pedicures and other spa treatments was ar-
rested after he led officers on a brief chase. What kind of
chase, you ask? Why, a foot chase, of course.
Under the heading of "And You Thought They Were Study-
ing," at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut, sex is
not a taboo subject. In fact, the college is,home to 'Sex Week,'
a biennial celebration that's one of the most provocative cam-
pus events in the nation. One couple's frolic in a shower at
one of Yale's undergraduate residential colleges prompted a
professor to issue an e-mail of protest.
The e-mail begins "OK, well THIS is the most awkward
college-wide e-mail I've ever had to send." His e-mail warns
against "intimate activity" in the showers, "especially that
kind of activity that leaves the showers in a decidedly less
hygienic state."
Hmmm.
Thankfully, we've still got Harvard. Hopefully, they won't
take this news lying down.
Under the heading of "I Like My Cigar, Too, But I Take It
Out Once In A While," a woman in Atlantic City was busy
gambling, but had to stop so she could give birth on the ca-
sino floor. Eight-months pregnant Nyree Thompson, 32, went
into labor on the casino floor about 9:30 a.m. Despite being
premature, little Qualeem was doing fine.
Talk about a floor show. Where's Wayne Newton when
you really need him?
Did you hear about the Philadelphia city councilman who
wants to install rubber sidewalks? He says the hard rubber
doesn't crack and lasts longer than concrete. He says it should
cut down on the number of slip and fall lawsuits. Perhaps
he's thinking it should be put down around all the local drink-
ing establishments to cut down on the slip and falls there.
One student at Oklahoma Wesleyan University may have
paid a lot less for tuition than his or her classmates. The
university on Saturday kicked off an eBay auction of a year
of tuition, room and board at the private college. The bid-
ding had reached $4,425 by 11 p.m. I guess that's okay. Of
course, if Wesleyan had added Yale's 'Sex Week' to their
course curriculum, kids would have been lining up to pay
the tuition.
Among Florida white-tailed deer, there are bucks and'
there are does. However, hunter Joe Stokes, an Orlando city
surveyor, bagged something in between. He shot a hermaph-
rodite, a deer sporting both male and female sex organs.
Stokes killed the deer while hunting on state land in Sumter
County. When he dragged his deer to a game-check station,
he and wildlife officials did a double-take. Tim Farley, a bi-
ologist and state senior wildlife technician with the Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission weighed the deer. Stokes
and his hunting buddy, plenty excited already by the large
deer with impressive antlers, stepped in for a closer look at
something even the most veteran experts hardly ever en-
counter.
"When I went to weigh it," Farley said, "I lifted its legs
and I saw..."
Oh, dear!

Editor:
In both math and logic, students learn that conclusions
based on a false premise are false. A letter to the editor
last week by Mr. Miller serves as a perfect example. Just
three words destroyed the believability of the entire letter.
Those three words: "the Jewish hierarchy" made it clear
that the writer has no clue about Judaism. The fact is that
there is no such thing as a Jewish "hierarchy." There is no
ranking system, no different levels of status or authority.
Unlike the Christian faith, Judaism has no pope, no bish-
ops, no cardinals, no monsignors, etc. So to claim that 'the
Jewish hierarchy cannot stand to see Jesus' name in any
public form," is the same as saying "the royal court of De-
Funiak Springs cannot stand ice cream." There is no royal
court of DeFuniak Springs. There is no Jewish hierarchy.
Since the statements are based upon false premises, both
statements become meaningless.
Still, the false and misguided accusations of the letter
must be answered.
It is not true that Jews cannot stand to see Jesus' name
in any public form. Such an accusation implies that the
reader thinks that Jews hate Jesus! That is absolutely ri-
diculous. Judaism is not a.religion based upon the rejec-
tion of any other religion or religious figure. The existence
of other religions neither detracts nor enhances the, con-
tinuation of the faith of Abraham, Isaac, and Moses. Jesus
is not a part of a Jew's life any more than the Buddha is.a
part of a Christian's life. But we would not accuse Chris-
tians of hating the Buddha. So to say that Jews cannot
stand to see Jesus' name in any public form is not only
patently false but shows that the writer completely mis-
understands the legal actions that he complains about.
Mr. Miller should try to imagine.what it would be like if
a majority of the United States were to become a religion
other than Christian and he was forced to participate in
prayers to a prophet in whom he did not believe. Would he
then understand why separation of religion and govern-
ment are necessary? Contrary to what the writer thinks,
the efforts by various groups to prevent the government
from perpetuating a particular faith are certainly not an
attack on Christianity. The efforts are aimed at protecting
religion from government control and protecting govern-
ment from religious control.
We do not need a Taliban in the United States. Even if
we share the same religion as the current ruling party,
there is always the chance that the ruling party, and
thereby the prevailing religion, would change. Then the
current majority would become the minority. By then, it
could be too late to separate church from state.

Dear Editor,
I have been following the story of our new Workforce Afford-
able Housing Development since the first article ran in this
paper. Being a builder, I knew that any argument that I make
against it would be viewed by many as just."sour grapes" by
someone who would lose potential business to this benevolent
endeavor. But, after reading last week's article on this master-
piece of government ingenuity, I figured, what the beck. maybe
it is sour grapes, but I've got to do something to get the taste
out of my mouth.
It's true that the prices of land and housing have risen dra-
matically in our area over the last several years. In our capi-
talist economy, the law of "supply and demand" dictates the
price of goods and services. The demand for housing has been
extremely high and prices have reflected that demand. But, in
case you haven't noticed, the great Walton County land rush is
over for the foreseeable future. All housing in our area is now
more affordable. The demand for land, lumber, labor ect., is
down and thus, so is the price of a house.
Several people have asked me how I felt about our govern-
ment going into the building business is competition against
me. I can't say I'm too thrilled with the notion, but our local
government has a history of this type of activity. Many of you
may recall the Lucky 13 Truck Stop. The county gave favor-
able treatment, in the form of tax breaks to the Lucky 13 to
get that enterprise started and thus set in motion the demise
. of the "unlucky" owner of the already existing truck stop only
a few miles down the road.
Oh well, back to the affordable housing story. It was the best
of times; it was the worst of times, but now witness the arrival
of our magnanimous saviors. To the rescue, with manna from
heaven, also known as "grant money," a politician's best friend.
Not to worry though, this is not taxpayer money. Grant money,
as our "public servants" refer to it, comes from little known
geysers located in our state capital and Washington, D.C. This
"Old Faithful," instead of erupting with steam or hot water,
spews forth millions upon millions of free "grant" dollars. That
sounds silly I admit, but, is it any sillier than the notion that
state and federal grants are not squeezed from the taxpayer?
Okay, here's a thought, the $20,000 subsidy (grant) for this
"affordable housing" comes to almost 25 percent of the cost of
a home. Please tell me, why shouldn't every taxpayer Who wants
to build a home, get 25 percent of the cost paid by govern-
ment? Answer,, the government has no money that it doesn't
confiscate from you, yes, you. Politicians, no matter how they
spin it, have no right to play Mother Teresa at our expense. It's
so easy to be charitable, with other people's money.
So now I ask you, what was the missing piece of the afford-
able housing puzzle? Simple, just get someone else to pay for
it.
P.S. I asked my banker if I could refinance my loan and roll
it into one of those "forgivable loans" mentioned in last week's
article. He laughed at me.

PROPOSAL FROM FRONT


he goes, which are then re-
corded once the voter has had
a chance to make a final re-
view of his choices.
Beasley estimates that the
state will certify a printer for
statewide use by July of 2008.
Walton County has 51 ma-
chines, and will not need any
additional optical scanners or
touch screen machines, only
certified printers.
A rough estimate of the
money that could be provided
to Walton County for printers
is around $25,000, said
Beasley. This is based on cur-
rent prices and needs.
Walton County is one of 15


out of 67 Florida counties
using paperless touch-
screen voting machines.
Beasley knows that
many voters preferred the
perceived "old fashioned"
ballot method, but be-
lieves that the touch
screens, with their wider
array of security and en-
cryption devices, offer
maximum security to the
process.
Crist's paper trail pro-
posal came as part of the
budget he has just pre-
sented to the legislature,
and will cost $32.5 million
to implement statewide.

"Author. Appreciation


Day" draws fans


By BRUCE COLLIER
The Chautauqua Hall of
Brotherhood was the scene
last Saturday of books, panel
discussions, and straight
talk from a group of pub-
lished authors on writing
i and the business of writing.
i The Book Store of DeFu-
niak Springs hosted "Author
Appreciation Day" on Febru-
ary 3, with a roster of more
than a dozen authors invited.
The authors and their books
were on hand, seated at
tables around the hall, and
at a panel discussion before
a good-sized crowd of reading
enthusiasts.
Among the speakers on
the panel were Robert Hill,
author of "Where Do Sea
Creatures Sleep?" Hill said
he began writing while on
duty in the military, as a way
of keeping in touch with his
family in North Carolina.
Canadian writer E.A.
LaPalme, author of the
"Ruben" series of Christian
children's books, spoke on the
sometimes lengthy process of
writing and finding a pub-


lisher, as well as the genesis
of a series character.
Also on hand, among oth-
ers, were regional historian
and writer Brenda Rees,
James Moore, author and im-
personator of Gov. Sidney


Catts, Timothy Weeks, au-
thor of "The Wise Mullet of
Cook Bayou" and "O1'
Middler Saves the Day,"
Dean Hubbard, author of
"Letter to Jerusalem," and
Civil War novelist Dawn

Triangle Chevrolet Buick adds im-


ports to quality pre-owned vehicles


NIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 8, 2007


"I have been with Triangle
Chevrolet Buick for almost
eight years. The first five
years I had the opportunity
to sell and service this great
community I call home. In
May of 2004, I became the
used car manager. This expe-
rience has been both chal-
lenging and rewarding. I
truly enjoy my job and work
hard to please each and ev-
ery customer," said Ronnie
Marshall, Triangle


Chevrolet.
"We have set many goals
here at Triangle for this year.
One goal is to sell more ve-
hicles and to reach out to
more customers and earn
their business. We notice
that by keeping nice clean
trades at competitive prices
our customers appreciate us
more.. We also haye had
many requests for import
vehicles. We have increased
our import inventory cur-


rently on our lot. We hope
that with the increase in im-
port vehicles, as well as our
domestic vehicles,. we can
continue to grow as we have
-over the past few years,"
Marshall added..
Marshall said, "In 2005,
our monthly.pre-owned sales
average was .18-20 cars a
month. In 2006' we; averaged
24-26 cars a month. Our goal
for 2007 is 30 pre-owned cars
a month. We can only get bet-


ter with your help. So stop by
to see some of the changes we
have made to our sales."
Marshall reminded cus-
tomers, "Many things have
changed but one thing will
remain the same, when you
buy from us you become a
part of the Triangle family.
So come let us take care of
you. To those of you already
a part of our family, we want
to thank you and hope to see
you again soon."

Chautauqua Assembly 2007 begins


By ANN ROBINSON
Chautauqua is coming to
De Funiak Springs! On
February 8-11, the Florida
Chautauqua Assembly will
bring a myriad of programs
on "Finding Home." Besides
the serious problems of "baby
boomers," hurricane victims
and immigrants looking for
home, the Assembly will offer
practical advice in home
design. "Woman's Day" Home
Editor, Janet Sobesky, and
"Anthropologie" Lifestylist
Michelle Braverman will give
up-to-the-minute ideas on
making your dreams of home
come true.
John Parson, Walton
County architect and new
home owner in De Funiak
Springs, will offer an up close
look at the cottage he has
recently renovated,
* There will be Tours of Old
Home Places in Eucheeanna,
a walking tour of Circle
Drive, a Cozy Cottage Tour
and a tour, of restored


downtown commercial
buildings.
The ,Chautauqua
Assembly is coming to De
Funiak Springs on February
8-11. One program will go on
continuously through every
day. Eli Chandler will return
with his Civil War
Reenactors. There will be
Confederate Camps and
Federal Camps behind the
Library on Lake DeFuniak.
These camps and
demonstrations will be open
to the public at no charge.
The schedule of drills and
skirmishes is in the program.
. The night time
performances cover a variety
of interests. On Thursday
night, the popular Sawmill
Band, house band for the
Farmer's Opry in Milton,
performs at the Civic Center
at 7 p.m. On Friday night Bill
Oberst, Jr. will perform as
the beloved comic-newspaper
columnist, Lewis Grizzard
who died in 1996. We will see


Lewis at the Florida
Chautauqua Theater at 7
p.m. Saturday night brings a
Scottish Ceilidh a
traditional Scottish evening
filled with music, story-
telling and dancing. This
performance also takes place
at the Florida Chautauqua'
Theater. The seating is
limited so. buy tickets for
Friday and Saturday
performances early.
Don't miss the Porch
Parties on Sunday afternoon
followed by an Evensong
presented by the Walton
County Ecumenical Choir.. ;a
"must-hear" whenever they
perform. The concert will
begin Sunday afternoon at
4:30 in the Methodist Church
Sanctuary and will be
followed by by the closing
ceremonies of the Florida
Chautauqua Assembly 2007.
I feel just like Winthrop
in The Music Man when he
sang, "Oh, the Wells Fargo
Wagon is a'coming down the


Arbor Day Foundation is giving

free trees to everyone who joins


I


street and I hope it's bringing
something just for me."
Well, the Florida
Chautauqua Assembly 2007
is here, but certainly not just
for me. Since the
Chautauqua Movement
found a winter home in
DeFuniak Springs in 1894, I
do hope that those of you who
read this may give
Chautauqua a chance to find
a home in your hearts. In
these times when the Golden
Rule seems to have lost its
way and when education is of
great concern to our country,
do you think we might just
find some inspiration from
John Heyl Vincent and Lewis
Miller? After all, their reason
for establishing the
Chautauqua Movement was
to provide 'a platform for
Civil Discourse and Life Long
Learning.' I'm willing to give
it a chance. Are you?
The entire program can
be found on the Web
site.. .www.Florida-
Chautauqua-Center.org.
Information is also available
from Susan@Florida -
Chautauqua-Center.org or by
calling 850892-7613.

of the nonprofit Foundation's

"Redbuds will add lasting
beauty to homes across

Arbor Day Foundation presi-
dent. "They offer clusters of
rosy pink flowers in spring,
dark green summer leaves
turning to yellow in the fall,
and a spreading, graceful


form throughout the year.
They'll also add to the proud
heritage of Florida's 120 Tree
City USA communities. For
three decades Tree City USA
has supported community
forestry across Florida, and
planting these lovely red-
buds will add to this impor-
tant tree-planting tradition."
The trees will be shipped
postpaid at the right time for
planting between March 1
and May 31 with enclosed,
planting instructions. The 6-
12 inch trees are guaranteed
to grow, or they will be re-
placed free of charge.


Members also receive a
subscription to the
Foundation's colorful bi-
monthly publication, "Arbor
Day" and "The Tree Book"
with information about tree
planting and care.

Foundation and receive the
free trees, send a $10 contri-
bution to ten free Redbud

Let's talk trash!
A 1 cent sales tax pays for household waste pickup all across Walton County. Dayco Services provides collection containers and gathers
trash north of the bay The county reimburses the City of DeFuniak Springs for trash collection within city limits. Waste Management
handles garbage collection south of the bay.
Every day the waste collection companies carry over 2.25 tons of garbage to Walton County's 160 acre landfill just north of DeFuniak
Springs. Solid Waste manager Rusty Floyd and assistant manager Earl Robinson oversee a staff of 11 who "manage" Walton County de-
bris. Among the staff are three "Trash Troopers" who go along county bike paths to clean up trash with the help of inmates from Walton
Correctional Institute. On Mondays they also pick up and replace blue recycling trailers and bring them to the landfill. There rmre Correc-
tional Institute inmates sort the trash under strict DEP guidelines into household waste or recyclables. Recycling companies buy the piles
of sorted glass, plastic, aluminum, cardboard and newspapers Household waste is carted off to the Springhill Landfill Facility near
Marianna for burial. Sites like Springhill are reserved for 100 years or more to accommodate the slowness of waste decomposition. It is
easy to understand that long after we take out the trash, the contents of our garbage cans linger on.
Bundling or bagging recyclables separate from other household trash would be a big help to the landfill's sorting process.
There is a charge of $21 per ton to receive construction debris That is what is buried in Walton County's landfill in lined pits that are moni-
tored to ensure that toxic materials do not percolate into groundwater and negatively impact the environment. Some of the scrap metal
from construction waste is recyclable and does not get buried.
Amnesty Day is held twice a year to gather hazardous materials such as paint, batteries, antifreeze, insecticide, household cleaners, oil
and electronics like cell phones and computers. This collection is free of charge to Walton County residents.
From November through February North Walton Mosquito Control collects tires at residences free of charge. Residents north of the bay
simply call 892-8183 to arrange for the pickup service. (Otherwise there is a fee of $90 per ton for processing old tires at the landfill)
The Landfill and Code Enforcement departments also hold "Community Clean-up Days" to gather yard waste and other debris. Another se-
ries of Clean-up Days is being planned for the Spring of 2007.
Both South Walton Mosquito Control on County Road 393 and the County Landfill accept "white goods" such as large appliances like re-
frigerators, washers, dryers and stoves. Residents must deliver them to the sites. The county has equipment that crushes even large metal
pieces like these appliances for recycling.
Paxton's EMS station, District 5's Zone 3 yard near the South Walton Courthouse Annex, Freeport's City Hall, and the County Shop on U.S.
90W in DeFuniak Springs have barrels to accept oil for recycling.

Did you know that:

* Recycling one aluminum can will save enough money to run a personal computer or a TV for 3 hours
* Compact fluorescent bulbs use 60% less energy than regular bulbs
* One average person throws out 1500 pounds of trash annually
* Substituting one compact fluorescent bulb for a traditional bulb keeps a half ton of carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere during the life of the
bulb
* About 4 billion pounds of electronic waste (computers, etc.) ends up in US landfills each year contaminating soil and water sources and
harming plants and animals
* Only 27% of US newspapers are recycled, so 500,000 trees must be cut down to produce a Sunday newspaper each week
* There is no limit to the number of times that aluminum cans can be recycled
* Wax coated paper cannot be recycled
* Glass takes over 1 million years to break down, but can immediately be recycled into new containers, fiberglass insulation, aggregate road
beds called glassphalt and concrete blocks.
* It costs less to recycle cans than to mine for the bauxite to make new ones.
* Bundling or bagging recyclables separate from other household trash would be a big help to the landfill's sorting process.

wishes to thank the members

Church for their generosity,
which made its drdam a re-

I, Thalia Straka, am on
probation fobr theft.


We are pleased to announce that our drinking water
meets all federal and state requirements.


We're very pleased to provide you with this year's Annual Water Quality Report. We want to keep you informed about the
excellent water and services we have delivered to you over the past year. Our goal is and always has been to provide to
you a safe and dependable supply of drinking water. Our water source is ground water from 3 wells. The wells draw from
the Floridan Aquifer. Because of the excellent quality of our water, the only treatment required is chlorine for disinfection
purposes.

In 2004 the Department of Environmental Protection performed a Source Water Assessment on our system and a search of
the data sources indicated no potential sources of contamination near our wells. The assessment results are available on
the FDEP Source Water Assessment and Protection Program website at www.de.state.fl.us.swapp.

If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact Mossy Head Water Works Inc.
at (850) 892-6154. We encourage our valued customers to be informed about their water utility. If you want to learn more,
please attend any of our regularly scheduled meetings. They are held on the first Monday of each month at our office build-
ing at 7 p.m.

Tips for Savincl Water
* Don't over water your lawn. Only water every three to five days in the summer and 10 to 14 days in the winter.
* To prevent water loss from evaporation, don't water your lawn during the hottest part of the day or when it.is windy.
* Only run the dishwasher and clothes washer when they are fully loaded.
* Defrost frozen food in the refrigerator or in the microwave instead of running water over it.
* When washing dishes by hand, use two basins.- one for washing and one for rinsing rather than let the water run.
* When washing dishes by hand, use two basins one for washing and one for rinsing rather than let the water run.
* Use a broom, rather than a hose, to clean sidewalks and. driveways.
* If you have a swimming pool, get a cover. You'll cut the loss of water by evaporation by 90 percent.
* Repair dripping faucets and leaky toilets. Dripping faucets can waste about 2,000 gallons of water each year. Leaky toilets
can waste as much as 200 gallons each day.

Mossy Head Water Works Inc. routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and State
laws, rules, and regulations. Except where indicated otherwise, this report is based on the results of our monitoring for the
period of January 1 to December 31, 2006. Data obtained before January 1, 2006, and presented in this report are from the
most recent testing done in accordance with the laws, rules, and regulations.

The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs,
and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring minerals and,
in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human
activity.

In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the EPA prescribes regulations, which limit the amount of certain contami-
nants in water provided by public water systems. The Food and Drug Administration.(FDA) regulations establish limits for
contaminants in bottled water, which must provide the same protection for public health.

Drinking water, including bottled water, may tbasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contami-
nants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk. More information
about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agency's Safe
Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791.

Contaminants that may be present in source water include:

(A) Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems,
agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife.
(B) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban stormwater run-
off, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining or farming.
(C) -Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff, and
residential uses.
(D) Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of industrial
processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff, and septic systems.
(E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining
activities.

In the table below, you may find unfamiliar terms and abbreviations. To help you better understand these terms we've pro-
vided the following definitions: .. '
Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL: The highest level of a,contaminant that is,allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set'
as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology.
Maximum Contaminant Level Goal or MCLG: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no
known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety.
Action Level (AL): The concentration of a contaminant which, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements that a
water system must follow.
Picocurie per liter (pCi/L) measure of the radioactivity in water.
"ND" means not detected and indicates that the substance was not found by laboratory analysis.
Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/I) one part by weight of analyte to 1 million parts by weight of the
water sample.
Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter (ug/I) one part by weight of analyte to 1 billion parts by weight of the
water sample.
Maximum residential disinfectant level or MRDL The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is
convincing evidence that addition of a disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants.
Maximum residential disinfectant level goal or MRDLG The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is
no known or expected risk to health. MRDLGs do not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to control microbial
contaminants.

Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-
compromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone
organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be par-
ticularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care pro-
viders. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other
microbiological contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791).

We at the Mossy Head Water Works Inc. work daily to insure that our customers are provided with the highest quality drink-
ing water available. We encourage.all members to become actively involved in the business of your system.

THE CHANGING FACE OF FREEPORT


If travelers have been through Freeport and its
service area lately, they have seen the changes
that are underway there. If not, then a trip
through will demonstrate what things are hap-
pening rapidly from the Choctawhatchee Bay
north to Owl's Head and from Portland east to
Bruce. While there, give some thought to how resi-
dents and visitors might react to the major face
lift and changes in lifestyle that are taking place
there.
Over all, the majority of the residents
seem to be in favor of the changes. Resident Karen
Miller said she "thinks the growth of Freeport is
exciting!"
Before the eye-popping boom in real estate de-
velopment began, there were few businesses that
offered opportunities for good jobs. Young people
entering the local work force did not have much
to look forward to after graduation from high
school.
Freeport resident Earnest Nettles says that
residents are tired of seeing family members leave
because of lack of jobs. Chuck Beaver agrees say-
ing, "One of Freeport's problems has always been
too much tourism and not enough industry. Bud
Day adds that growth means more local jobs and
this will help keep the younger people from mov-
ing.
The current feeling is well expressed by an
anonymous senior citizen passing by who said,
"If they're bringing in jobs, then let them come!!"
Confirmation of the residential and business
growth comes from people throughout the area.
Day said that he has been getting new customers
almost every day, with the last two years show-
ing a jump in demand.
Copeland recalled that ten or more years back,
business was hard to get. Now, he says, things
are easier and that improvements in the local
economy benefit everyone. Karen Miller supports
this, saying that at one time she knew most people
who came into the store but now she sees new
aces frequently.
' Of course there are down-sides. Beaver lives
north of DeFuniak Springs and commutes to work
ir Freeport. He says that the price of real estate
in Freeport is so high that the ordinary working-
person cannot afford to live there. Nettles voiced
sin,iilar thoughts, saying that both halves of a
married couple must work to provide a home. This
point is recognized by local leaders and several
programs, including a development east of town
that is in the planning stage. This development
at maturity will provide a large number of hous-
ing units at prices local working people can af-
ford.


Chuck Beaver says some of the older residents
got tired of the "hustle and bustle and traffic vol-
ume" and moved on to a quieter locale. Other
departures though have been the result of rare
economic.-opportunity created by rising land prices
that allowed some residents to sell their proper-
ties and move to properties that suit them better.
Day feels the community is just "going with the
flow," while Miller feels that many are happy with
the. result and still return to Freeport to work.
Everyone is concerned with the major traffic
problems tlhat accompany the local growth. Al-
though large numbers of tourists and workers
travel back and forth through Freeport on U.S.
331, Hwy. 20'is also showing a significant increase
in traffic volume.
U.S. 331 is a particularly bad problem. The
stretch of U.S. 331 from the north end of the Bay
bridge all the way to the intersection with Inter-
state 10 is often referred to by drivers as, "The
no-passing zone." Accident rates and fatalities are
climbing. Five people have lost their lives in the
recent past in wrecks between the north end of
the bridge and LaGrange Road.


THESE HOUSES, styled after the tract houses of the 1950s, will A SIGN OF THE TIMES. Signs like these for new develop-
soon house new residents in Fireeport. ments are becoming more common in and around Freeport,
once a sleepy fishing and ship-building village.


THE 331 PLAZA on
the corner of Blue-
berry, features mul-
tiple stores, includ-
ing Nick's, the only
seafood market in
north Walton
County.


* A.


Freeport.


A PLANNED COM-
MUNITY, featuring an
Arnold Palmer golf
course, is slated for
construction just north
of Freeport, near the
beginning of the Free-
port Bypass.


THIS SHOPPING CENTER, just north of Hwy. 20, is filling up fast and already
features two restaurants, JBs Chinese and Big City Grill.


,CS~;L


THIS HAMMOCK BAY sign, near the large clubhouse, seems to blend right in with the
scenery. Hammock Bay is one of the largest planned communities in Freeport.


Residents generally feel that the U.S. 331-Freeport by-pass will help the situa-
tion some, but all think that a four lane road is required. Jackson says, "Even
having three lanes would be an improvement." Miller agreed that having more turn-.
ing lanes, traffic lights and better speed control are required.
The idea to construct a toll-bridge over the bay is very, very unpopular with local
people. Jackson says, "You wouldn't believe the remarks I hear about the Bay bridge.',
Miller says that she would hate to see development proceed in an uncontrolled
sprawling way. She thinks the city officials have really tried hard to control Freeport's
growth and the city is
fortunate to have City Planner Planner Latilda Henniger. Beth Jackson also
complimented the elected officials and Henninger, saying she is glad they have
been diligent in looking after the interests of the residents while the city is in the
growth phase.
Most residents also feel that Freeport should have its own code enforcement per-
sonnel, instead of depending on Walton County for this service.
Nettles says Freeport is changing from a "sleepy little town" into a very active
community.
Everyone believes the influx of new residents will bring changes to lifestyle in
Freeport. People moving here will bring their own ideas and standards with them.
In the not-too-distant future they will provide leadership for the community and
Miller points out that the families who have old roots in Freeport will continue to,
help guide the future development of the city.
And perhaps best of all, Beth Jackson said, "the future Freeport is going to be a:
nice place to live."

The love I have for you is very strong.
It lies very deep within my heart. For lov-
ing you could never be wrong, because
"Cupid" has hit me with his dart.
The years we have been together have
passed, but in our hearts we will always
remember. Even though the time went
swift and fast. The days are here and we
are still together.
Being with you has given my life a new
meaning. What I am trying to tell you
my darling "wife," is that on this day of
the year, I can say one thing, I love being
with you and it is for the rest of our lives.

Beauty, with all of its con-
notations, was the focus of a
recent seminar sponsored by
the Miss DeFuniak Springs
Pageant and the Miss Wal-
ton County Pageant. The "Be
the Best You Can Be" semi-
nar introduced young women
to current trends in style,
cosmetic beauty, and the
timeless charm of verbal in-
telligence.
One session, conducted by
Christa Merrifield-Mitchell,
emphasized the importance
of using makeup and hair-


styles to enhance one's natu-
ral beauty rather than cam-
ouflaging it. Another seg-
ment, presented by Pam
Keebles of Dothan, AL, fea-
tured expert tips on graceful
posture and stage presence.
Keebles, owner of the suc-
cessful Dothan pageant store
Formally Yours, also show-
cased the latest fashions in
evening gowns and interview
suits, as she provided up-to-
date expert knowledge on
wardrobe selection for pag-
eants and prom occasions.


In a session focusing on the
communication aspects of
the upcoming Miss DeFu-
niak Springs and Miss Wal-
ton County pageants, the at-
tendees were given tips on
how to prepare for the judge's
interview and the.verbal
communication or the "Word"
competition. Rachael Jones,
reigning Miss Walton County
and 4th runner-up in the
2006 Miss National Peanut
Festival pageant and David
Pert demonstrated proper in-
terview skills and answered
questions from the audience.

PLT premieres

local playwright


By ROBIN NEWTON
"World Council of Ani-
mals," a play written by lo-
cal writer and director Earl
Newton, premieres this
Thursday at the Pensacola

Theater. The show opens
Thursday, Feb.8 at 8 p.m.,

centered around the idea of
Doctor Doolittle presiding
over a governing body of ani-
mals.
Although Newton began
his creative life on the stage
of the Chautauqua Theater,
his talents have since ex-
tended beyond the theater.
His first short film, "Fall of a
Saga" won awards in several
venues throughout the
United States and honored
actor Bruce Collier with a
Best Actor Award at the
Shockerfest Film Festival in
Modesto, California. "Sins of
the Mother," his second short
film, played in film festivals
around the country, garner-

Stegall. Stegall has been in
both of Newton's short films
and co-stars in the premiere
episode of"Stranger Things,"
entitled "Sacred Cow."

Open Door celebrates birthday


By ROBIN NEWTON
The Open Door Club of DeFuniak Springs celebrated
Birthday Month in January. The room was decorated with
balloons and party horns as the group honored the birth-
days of all club members. Everyone brought a birthday gift
and the random exchange'resulted in happy members tak-
ing home candles, bath sets, hokie decorations, and more.
After lunch and the business meeting, club members en-
joyed the delicious cake decorated with Happy Birthday
Open Door.
Emma Lawrence, Anne Ryan, Shonteria OiNeal, Susan
Blocker and Joan Cibaras won door prizes.


The next meeting is set for Thursday, February 8, at 11
a.m. at the Best Western Crossroads Inn on 331 South. The
guest speaker, Barbara Rankin, will discuss Florida's Wit-
ness Protection Program.
The Open Door Club extends an invitation to all women
in the area to come and join in the fellowship. Members are
encouraged to bring a guest to the meeting and invite new-
comers to the area. Members say that the fellowship that
begins over a lunch once a month can carry one through
wben times are difficult. "It is not so much our friends' help
that helps us as the confident knowledge that they will help
us." Epicurus

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 08, 2007


Cannot He do with us His
children, as the potter, mak-
ing us to suit the purpose for
which He redeemed us?
Remember what the
Psalmist wrote in Psalm
119:73: "Thy hands made me
and fashioned me." None of
us chose the time nor the cir-
cumstance of our birth. Some
of us were born one color, an-
other a different color. You
did not choose that, therefore
we need to witness to all. It
is God that has made us, not
we ourselves for one thing
did He make us and redeem
us to be His witness to "the
uttermost part of the earth."

Sometimes we challenge
God saying, "Why hast Thou
made me thus?" (Romans
9:20). The answer to the
question could be our own.
We were made as we are for
the fulfilling of His purpose.
Is someone unpleasant to
you? Your purpose could be
to be kind to that one and
thus "thou shalt heap coals
of fire on his head" (Romans
12:20).


Do your best to do your best
for people. They may not re-
spond at once nor be sympa-
thetic, yet you have fulfilled
your purpose. Just ask that
the Savior and you may be
yoked together, that His will
may be done through you.
This way His love and kind-
ness may bear and forbear
fruit through you. Be a wit-
ness to the truth as it is found
in Christ Jesus.


Marble & Granite

Quality doesn't cost more ...
It pays more


by Dr. Robert M. Jaye
John 18:37 contains these
words: "To this end was I
born, and for this cause came
I into the world, that I should
bear witness unto the truth."
Thus, Jesus starts to give us
the purpose of His life on the
earth as He speaks to Pilate.
It is enough that the Lord
send us forth to follow His
purpose and to bear witness
to His truth.
God created each soul with
a purpose. A potter handles
clay with a purpose in mind.
He may make a vase for a
temple or one just for house-
hold use. So with our Lord.

FROM
THE
SOWER


Little Sammy, age
four, had surgery. It
was necessary that he
take his meals intra-
venously for a while.
After the nurse ex-
plained the situation
and started to admin-
ister the glucose, little
Sammy asked, "Aren't
you going to say
grace?" The habit of
giving thanks is a
brave and cheerful
habit.
It's an antiseptic. It
destroys the poison of
grumbling. It's an an-
titoxin. It dissolves
the poison of greed.
It's a vaccine. It de-
feats the poison of
grief. Like the little
boy asked, "Aren't you
going to say grace?"

The drowning of young Gil-
bert Keebler Jr in 1932 is a
part of local lore, a sad and
tragic tale now grown into leg-
end.
The author, Margaret Hicks
Savage, was Gilbert's aunt.
She resides today in Tuscon,
AZ.
About noon on Tuesday, Oc-
tober 11, 1932, a four-year-old
child wandered down the steps
that led to the boat dock of his
grandmother's summer home.
His white sailor suit was
trimmed in navy blue. His
white and blue navy cap cov-
ered his blond hair, shading
his bright, blue eyes. He ran
out on the pier to the very end,
I looked down into .the lake,
laughing as he saw minnows
swimming near the surface.
He reached down, his small
fingers barley skimming the
water. Just a little bit nearer
and surely he would catch one.
He spread' his fingers wide,
squirming to touch the water.
Just a tiny bit closer! He
slipped, with barley a sound,
into the lake..
Twenty or so minutes later,
his little body, arms waving
languidly toward the surface
was found by his Swedish
nanny, Elsa, and his
grandmother's faithful cook,
Mary.
Young Gilbert. Called "Gee
Gee" by the family, was the
only son of my half-sister,
Helen Joy Keebler, and the
first grandchild of my mother,
Margaret Davis Hicks (Mrs.
Robert E.) I, Gee Gee's aunt,
am the -only person yet alive
who can personally recall that
tragedy. It, like so many other
tragedies, has passed into, leg-
end. When I returned to our
old summer home, 'Lock
Lomond,' (now named 'Camp
Helen') sixty years after the
event, a park ranger asked if
anyone from my family had
drowned there. The question
surprised me. Who could have
remembered the long ago
death of young Gee Gee? The
park ranger told me that vari-
ous tourists fishing on Lake
Powell had reported.seeing a
small child on the pier as they
brought their boats in to old
Mr. Gaynor's dock across the
lake.
"Ain't no lights on up at the
big house,? they would say,
'What's a little kid doing out
there by hisself after sun-
down?"
Does the restless spirit of
Gee Gee continue to haunt the
place of his untimely end?


That Tuesday morning, my
mother and I had driven to
Panama City for the weekly
shopping, leaving Gee Gee in
care of Elsa and Mary. As was
our custom, we lunched at
the Cove Hotel with Mrs.
Harris, the owner. We were
preparing to leave when she
was called to the telephone.
She returned to our table,
taking my mother by the
hand. I saw the shadow of,
tears in her eyes.
"Dear Mrs. Hicks, I have
bad news," she said in a
hoarse whisper.
A waitress took me by the
hand into the sunroom, tell-
ing me she had a special
chocolate surprise just for
me. I was ten years old and
easily bribed!
My sister and her husband
flew down from Chicago, Gee
Gee's body awaited them at
the Cove Hotel, I accidentally
opened the door of that room
finding my sister kneeling by
the bed, her eyes dark from
weeping, holding his tiny life-
less hand in her own. I re-
treated, closing the door as
softly as I could. '
Gradually the story un-
folded. Elsa and our cook

were preparing lunch for Gee
Gee. He had been playing
with our dog in the back gar-
den by the kitchen. When his
nanny called him for lunch,
the dog was asleep and Gee
Gee gone. Mary went toward
the servant house and Elsa
walked around to the front.
She called Gee Gee, but there
was no answer. She started
down the steps to the boat
house when she felt a cold fin-
ger of fear creep up her spine.
She broke into a run. She
reached the end of the dock,
look down into the clear wa-
ter where he lay, his blue eyes
staring up at the sun he
would never see again.
Elsa retrieved his body. Her
screams brought Mary. Fish-
ermen on the lake heard her
and came to investigate, but
it was all too late.

His parents, took his body
back; to .Chicagofor burial in
the Keebler tomb. My
mother never recovered from
his death, often blaming her-
self, though she was not re-
sponsible. It is said that a
child born with a caul is des-
tined to die by drowning. I
didn't' hear that superstition
until after my sister had
died. Was Gee Gee born with
a caul?

SERVICE..........
When it matters most



b JERRY EVANS

Since opening in 1999 the families we have served have posed many
questions to us concerning funerals and funeral service. We have com-
piled the top 10 questions we have been asked most frequently:

#10 Why are more and more funerals being held in the funeral home
now rather than in the church as in the past?

In the old days, funeral homes were mostly located in old homes that
had been renovated to use as a funeral home. They were simply inade-
quate and usually way too small thus the church was chosen for serv-
ices. In today's modern society structures built for the sole purpose of
being a funeral home are the norm. At JERRY EVANS the modern
state-of-the-art all brick facility is located on five acres of land offering
plenty of well lit off street paved parking, with covered porticos which
offer ease of access in inclimate weather. All of the public access areas
in the facility are on one level with no awkward stairs to be climbed
ever, offering ease and comfort to those on canes, walkers or in wheel-
chairs. The spacious chapel, complete with baby-grand piano, offers
sanctuary to those who have lost a loved one. The well lit, beautifully
furnished facility meets the standard of what Walton and Holmes
County citizens expect and deserve. Our caring professional qualities
are easily recognized not only in facilities, but in our quality licensed
and caring personnel.

The hundreds and hundreds of families we have been privileged to
serve say it best....... Ask them.

Four local basketball teams in playoffs


By PATRICK CASEY
Walton, Freeport, Ponce
de Leon and Paxton will all
participate in the Florida
High School Athletic
Association's state girls bas-
ketball playoffs with opening
round contests on Thursday,
February 8, at 7 p.m.
PDL and Paxton both'
claimed district champion-
ships on Saturday while Wal-
ton and Freeport qualified as
runner-ups.
PDL (20-6) won the Dis-
trict 2, Class 2A tournament
held at Panama City
Bozeman with a 58-27
thrashing of Cottondale.
Maggie Wright led the way
with 14 points as the Pirates
claimed their third straight
district championship.
Paxton (25-2) throttled
Laurel Hill for the third time
this season in the District 1,
Class A championship game
70-29. BreezyZorn continued
her hot shooting at the end
of the season as she scored


27 points while Alena Mar-
tin powered her way to 20
points on the night. The Bob-
cats, like the Pirates, will
host an opening round play-
off game and have won three
straight district champion-
ships.
Walton (20-7) had a disas-
trous championship game.
against Pensacola Catholic
as the Braves lost to the Cru-
saders for the third time this
season 61-26. Walton
struggled with turnovers and
was handicapped by three
early fouls on point guard
Chelsea Robinson. May Lane
scored nine points to lead
Walton in the defeat. Walton
and Catholic were tied 13-13
after one quarter of play, only
to see the Crusaders outscore
Walton 48-13 the rest of the
way.
Freeport (15-12) fell to
Baker 56-32 in the District
1, Class 2Atitle game atJay.
Baker outscored Freeport 15-
0 in the second quarter to end


any hopes of a district title
for the Bulldogs. Tamara
Woods had seven points to
lead Freeport, as the Bull-
dogs were held to one made
three-point shot on the night.
Playoff notes: Freeport
faces the most daunting task
in traveling to Ponce de Leon
for an opening round Class
2A playoff game. The Bull-
dogs last qualified for the
playoffs in the 1998-99 sea-
son under Aubrey Rentz,
winning a pair of playoff
games before losing to Talla-
hassee FAMU 50-47 in the
Region final. That team was
the school's most successful
in girls basketball history.
Mike Myrick's squad will
make their first playoff ap-
pearance in his eight-year
tenure, and can take some
solace in the fact that Free-
port has nevei lost an open-
ing round girls playoff game.
Freeport is 5-4 in the state
playoffs and has not played
PDL in the regular season


Cardiac Braves do it


By PATRICK CASEY
It seemed like a replay of
last week. Larel Jackson rac-
ing from one end of the floor
to the other, sinking a game
winning shot in the final sec-
onds to steal a win for the
Walton Braves. Deja vu
would be apt, as Jackson's
10-foot jumper in the lane
sent Holmes County back to
Bonifay with a 62-61 loss,
nine days after Jackson did
the same to Pensacola Catho-
lic in an 86-84 win.
Jackson would not let the
Braves succumb to an out-
standing effort by the
Bluedevils as he scored 35
points to help Walton rally
from a 34-25 halftime deficit
to improve to 16-8 on the sea-
son.
Holmes County did nearly
everything right in trying to
sweep Walton this season,
but a turnover with 30 sec-
onds left allowed Walton's
Sydney McGhee to drain a
couple of free throws for a
short-lived 60-59 lead. After
a Bluedevils + timeout,
Jamarious Johns scored on a
lay-up to give Holmes
County a 61-60 advantage
with nine seconds left, only
to see Jackson race the floor,
as he did against Pensacola


Catholic last week, and sink
another game-winning shot
for the Braves.
Walton avenged a 67-60
loss to Holmes County on
January 16 as Dylan Laird
and Craig Brooks added 10
points apiece. Laird canmied
a pair of three-point shots
late in the game to keep Wal-
ton close, and McGhee's pres-
sure-filled free throws gave
Walton the lead for the first
time since the opening min-
utes of the game.


Jeremy McGowan was un-
stoppable in the first half, as
he tallied 21 of his 28 points
in the first sixteen minutes,
as Holmes County controlled
the tempo and built a nine-
point lead at the half. Johns
added 11 points and Luke
Strickland had 10 in the
heart-wrenching road loss.
Game Notes: Walton has
a 21-8 record against Holmes
County dating back to the
1990-01 season. Walton has
won four in a row after drop-

since 2004-05. PDL and
Freeport will be meeting in
the playoffs for the first time.
PDL holds an 18-2 record in
the series dating back to the
1992-93 season. Freeport's
last win in PDL was on Janu-
ary 8, 1999, when they beat
the Pirates 59-33. PDL is 24-
12 in the state playoffs in the
school's history. The Pirates
have lost in the first round
only five times in 14 appear-
ances. Tim Alford is 15-7 in
state playoff games as the
Pirates head coach. The win-
ner of the contest will face
the Blountstown (10-8)-West
Gadsden (14-10) winner in
the second round on Tuesday,
February 13.
Paxton will face Graceville
.(17-6) in the opening round
of the Class A tournament at
home. Paxton is 2-0 against
Graceville in the state play-
offs, including a 59-43 victory
last year in the opening
round at home. The Bobcats
will have to repeat that per-


again!
ping four straight. Walton is
6-3 against the Bluedevils
under Jerry Hester. Walton
committed only nine turn-
overs in the game, compared
to 17 for Holmes County. The
Bluedevils hit 22-of-43 shots
from the floor, including 8-of-
13 to start the game. Walton
hit 11-of-20 free throws in the
game, not a stellar perfor-
mance, but made 5-of-6 in
the fourth quarter.
McGowan, a freshman for
Holmes County, canned
seven 3-pointers in the game.
Walton has finished above
the .500 mark in eight of
their last ten seasons. Jerry
Hester is 85-45 in five sea-
sons as Walton's head coach.,

gotten past the second round
since 1997, the last time the
school won a state champion-
ship. Paxton is entering the
playoffs for the seventh time
under Herb Haddock in his
ten seasons as head coach.
Haddock holds a coaching
record of 3-6 in nine state
playoff games with FAMU
knocking the Bobcats out of
the playoffs the last two sea-
sons in the second round.
Walton (20-7) will travel to
Bonifay to take on Holmes
County (18-9) in the opening
round of the Class 3A girls
basketball playoffs. Walton is
making a trip to the playoffs
for the first time since the
2003-04 season. The Braves
have not won an opening
round state playoff game
since the 1995-96 season.


Terry McClure, in his first
year as head coach at Walton,
has three state champion-
ships in Florida, but must
rally a team that got spanked
61-26 by Pensacola Catholic
in the district final on Satur-
day night. Walton has never
faced the Bluedevils in the
playoffs before and has not
played the school since the
2002-03 season. Walton is' 7-
8 versus Bonifay in the last
15 meetings, dating back to
the 1995-96 season. Walton
is 2-5 at Holmes County over
the same time frame with
their last win on the road 43-
41 during the 1998-99 regu-
lar season. Walton holds a
16-12 record in state playoff
games. Holmes County lost
to South Walton last year in
the opening round 53-43, and
holds only a 5-10 record in
the state playoffs. The win-
ner will likely have to travel
to Jacksonville to take on
Ribault (23-1) in the second
round.

Ponce de Leon 69, Walton


By PA TRICK CASEY
The Ponce de Leon (PDL)
Pirates got a scare on the
road last week as South Wal-
ton took the game down to
the wire only to fall 44-42.
PDL (14-7), who had
beaten South Walton 68-33
in their first meeting, found
the task more difficult on the
road as the Seahawks recov-
ered from a 13-6 first quar-
ter deficit to take a 22-17 lead
late in the first half. The Pi-
rates responded with six
straight points to hold a 23-
22 advantage at intermis-
sion.

PDL struggled with South
Walton's methodical half-
court offense, but took ad-
vantage of 16 turnovers to
hold on for the win. Cody
Carroll led the way with 16


points and was the only
source for shots from the
floor in the third quarter
when the Pirates were strug-
gling to score.

South Walton may have
deserved a better outcome, as
Carroll fouled Sam Petty on
a three-pointer with 6.8 sec-
onds left in the game and the
Seahawks trailing 43-41,
only to see Petty make only
1-of-3 from the charity line.
The Seahawks fouled imme-
diately on the inbounds pass,
and Dylan Skinner made a
free throw to increase the fi-
nal margin to 44-42. South
Walton could not get a des-
peration shot off in the final
1.4 seconds of the game.
South Walton (4-19) got 18
points from Petty and 13
from Preston Beard in the


loss.
Game Notes: PDL is now
9-0 against South Walton in
the series history. This was
the closest game in the series
as the Seahawks had never
been closer than 12 points in
the final margin entering
this game. PDL will face
Panama City Bozeman in the'
first round of the District 2,'
Class 2A tournament at
Bozeman on Friday, Febru-
ary 9, at 7:30 p.m. PDL fin-
ished district play 5-1. South
Walton will have played
Pensacola Catholic in the
first round of the District 1,
Class 3A tournament on
Tuesday, February 6. Details
were not available at press
time, though the Seahawks
will be a decided underdog
after going 0-6 in district
play this season.

Walton boys

hold off

Crestview

59-53
By PATRICK CASEY
Larel Jackson had 17
points and Walton hit 17-of-
22 shots from the free throw
line as the Braves defeated
Crestview 59-53 in a game
played at the Walton High
School gymnasium.
Walton raced out'to a 22-.
12 first quarter lead as
Shadler Roehm drained
three 3-pointers in the first
quarter to pull away from the
Bulldogs early. Craig Brooks
added 10 points on the night,
despite foul trouble, to aid
Walton in a 34-21 halftime
advantage.
Walton went through a
cold patch in the third quar-
ter as the Braves did not hit
a shot from the floor for the
first six minutes of the pe-
riod. Free throws kept Wal-
ton ahead as the Braves
canned 7-of-8 from the char-
ity stripe to hold a 45-36 lead
after three periods.
Walton (15-8) avenged a
62-59 loss to Crestview on
November 30 with the win.
The Bulldogs got 16 points
from Tyrell Mays and Skylar
Armstrong as the squad fell
to 8-15 on the season.
Game Notes' Walton has
won three of the last four
games against the Bulldogs.
Crestview leads the series
dating back to the 1990-91
season 18-7. Jerry Hester
has a 3-1 record as Walton's
head coach versus Crestview.
Walton won the junior var-
sity contest 56-52 in over-
time. The 1993-94 season
saw one of the biggest upsets
in the series as Walton
knocked off Crestview 58-50
in a district tournament
semifinal. Crestview was
third-ranked in the state at
the time. Walton went on to
beat Tallahassee Rickards ori
a last-second shot that sea-
son before falling to eventual
state champion Jacksonville
Ribault in the next round
under then head coach Gor-
don Brock.

Freeport boys continue


hot streak


By PATRICK CASEY
The Freeport boys won
their tenth straight game as
Jamey Goddin scored 21
points to help the Bulldogs
close out the regular season
with a 66-60 victory over the
Paxton Bobcats.
Freeport (16-10) forced 20
turnovers from the Bobcats
on the night as they avenged
a 58-56 loss to Paxton in De-
cember. Aaron Knight tallied
16 points while Devon Grant
chipped in 13 for the home
victory.
Paxton (14-11) stayed


close with solid free throw
shooting as the Bobcats
canned 16-of-21 shots from
the charity stripe. Blake
Zessin led the way with 17
points while Colby Forehand
scored 16 and Dan
Geoghagan added 11 points.
Freeport was able to hold
off the Bobcats with solid re-
bounding, as the Bulldogs
dominated the glass, espe-
cially on the offensive end.
Game Notes: The two
teams had split the last 18
meetings. Freeport now owns
a 10-9 advantage dating back


a decade. Freeport will enter
the District 1, Class 2A tour-
nament as the top seed. The
Bulldogs will face the Baker
Gators in the opening round
in Jay. Freeport defeated
Baker handily in both previ-
ous meetings. Paxton will
open with Escambia Charter
in the District 1, Class Atour-
nament at Central. Paxton
will likely have to defeat the
host Jaguars on Friday to
gain a district berth. Paxton
has played Central twice, los-
ing by two and four points in
the regular season.

WALTON COUNTY PROPERTY AP-
WCTA PRESIDENT BONNIE PRAISER Patrick Pilcher takes questions
McQUISTON opens the meeting. from the audience.




WCTA holds



annual meeting


By JEFFREY POWELL
"I want to thank all local
officials who give their time
and assistance to the Walton
County Taxpayers Associa-
tion (WCTA)," said WCTA
President Bonnie
McQuiston.
McQuiston moderated the
WCTA annual meeting on
Jan. 31, at the Coastal
Branch Library in Santa
Rosa Beach. A large group of
citizens and local dignitaries
attended the meeting includ-
ing Defuniak Springs Chief
of Police Mike Adkinson,
Cory Godwin of the Walton
County-Tax Office and
County Commissioner Cindy
Meadows.
The WCTA is a non-parti-


san, non-profit all volunteer
organization that monitors
taxation, initiates actions to
reduce taxation and brings
attention to wasteful govern-
ment spending. "We encour-
age a common sense ap-
proach to how our tax money
is spent," McQuiston said.
Part of the meetings pur-
pose was to elect a board of
directors. The election was
somewhat anti-climactic, as
the 2007 Board remains the
same as 2006. The directors
are as follows, President
Bonnie McQuiston, Vice
President J.B. Hillard, Sec-
retary Ella D' Autilia and
Treasurer Bob Hudson.
Wednesday's guest
speaker was Walton County
Property Appraiser Patrick


Pilcher. Pilcher gave a short
briefing on the workings of
the. property appraisers du-
ties and then took questions
from the audience. Many of
these questions concerned
rising property taxes and ap-
praisals.
"If you get your appraisal
and do not approve call us
and we will go over it with
you," Pilcher said.
"This was a very informa-
tive meeting and Patrick
gave some good information,"
Meadows said, "I would like
to see more of this kind of
meeting and citizens need to
become more involved."

Dozens of development
projects are on hold in Wal-
ton County as a result of
problems with the new Pro-
portionate Fair Share Pro-
gram, and it was apparent on
Jan. 29 that many in the
community are concerned
about that situation.
A town hall meeting was
co-sponsored on that evening
by the Walton County Cham-
ber of Commerce and Walton
County Planning and Devel-
opment Services. The meet-
ing began with comments by
a panel of state and local of-
ficials and then moved to
questions and comments
from attendees, who filled
two sizeable ballrooms at
Sandestin Golf and Beach
Resort to overflowing.
The Proportionate Fair
Share Program was created
as a result of the 2005 state
legislation known as Senate
Bill 360 (S.B. 360). Propor-
tionate Fair Share purposed
to help development projects
move forward while mitigat-
ing the traffic-related im-
pacts of development
through the creation of pub-
lic-private partnerships
funding transportation-re-
lated improvements.
Local governments are re-
quired to maintain an accept-
able level of service on road-
ways, and challenges related
to traffic capacity are by no

Nine beach accesses to be reconstructed


By DOTTY NIST
Scheduled for completion
in Walton County by the end
ofApril are nine public beach
accesses located at: The
Palms of Dune Allen,
Seagrade Road, Gulf Point
Road, Eastern Lake, Holly
Street, Live Oak Street, Aza-
lea/Camellia Street,
Campbell Street, and
Seacrest.
The South Walton Tourist
Development Council (TDC)
maintains over 50 beach and
bay accesses, the vast major-
ity of which were constructed
with funding from the tour-
ist bed tax. In July 2005,
Hurricane Dennis partially
or totally destroyed all those
accesses.
Since then, rebuilding has
taken place in a phased pro-
cess. The new nine-beach pc-
cess project will ready all the
TDC accesses for use, with
the exception of two that are
special cases.
On Jan. 23, the Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners approved a
$333,817 low bid by Redfish
Marine, a local contractor, to
rebuild the nine accesses.
The contract calls for the
project to be completed by
April 30, in time for the tour-
ist and swimming season.
Funding will be through
the TDC budget with the as-
sistance of FEMA reimburse-
ment.


The


new nine-beach access


project will ready all the TDC ac-
cesses for use, with the exception
of two that are special cases.


Dave Sell, beach mainte-
nance director for the TDC,
explained that both this set
of accesses and the previous
phase were constructed in a
more "armored" fashion at
the request of the federal of-
ficials. Thicker pilings are
being used, and they are to
be buried .12 feet deep rather
than eight feet deep as pre-
viously.
While the goal had been to
ready all the accesses for use
prior to spring 2006, Sell said
this was unfortunately not
possible. He explained that it
was very difficult to get con-
tractors following the 2005
hurricane, since almost all
construction companies were
busy with other work.
Sell said the TDC tried to
prioritize walkover construc-
tion in order to provide "cov-
erage" countywide for
beachgoers, even though re-
construction on some ac-
cesses had to be delayed.
Also scheduled for comple-


tion by April 30 will be an al-
ternative type of dune walk-
over at the Greenwood Street
public beach access. This will
be a metal walkover that will
be removable when storms
approach. Sell said that if re-
sults are good at this loca-
tion, t e TDC would possibly
look at using this type of
walkover at other accesses in
the future.
Another special case i's the
Miramar Beach Regional Ac-
cess, which is located close to
Scenic Gulf Drive and fea-
tures a large parking area.
Historically this access has
been very vulnerable to
storms and has been very
expensive to rebuild in the
wake of storm impact. Plans
are underway to reconstruct
this access with a new more
storm-resistant design simi-
lar to bridge construction.
Sell said the target date
for the completion of
Miramar Beach Regional Ac-
cess is spring 2008.


THE FINAL SET of Walton County public beach accesses
to be reconstructed following Hurricane Dennis is scheduled
for completion by April 30, in time for the tourist and swim-
ming season. These dune walkovers will be constructed to:a
higher storm-resistant standard as compared with those buzt
prior to Hurricane Dennis.

Craige Hoover held an open
audition for all local actors
and singers on January 29.
The auditions were held at
the theatre, and drew a
crowd of 20 25 persons, in-
cluding parents and well-
wishers.
This was SRT's first open
local audition since the the-
ater started in 2001. Hoover
attends many out-of-town
and regional auditions, but
also offers individual audi-
tions by appointment.
Hoover said that he wanted
to quiet any reports or ru-

has a bias in favor of out-of-
town talent.

A total of 25 people audi-

Fort Walton Beach. Ages
ranged from children to mid-
50s.
Hoover thanked the
auditioners, and expressed
his intention of holding an-
other open audition in six
months.
Hoover later commented
that he was impressed with
the large response, adding "I

some of the talent that
turned out."
SRT's first production, the

CRAIGE HOOVER, Seaside Rep Artistic Director, wel-
comes local auditioners.


Dickey told the board.
The calendar will see La-
bor Day in September as the
only holiday for the first full
month, as usual. October will
see schools closed for Colum-
bus Day on Monday, October
8, as well as Tuesday, Octo-
ber 9, for a school holiday,
meaning a four-day weekend
for students and teachers.
Students will also be out on
Thursday, October 25, for a
teachers' planning day and
Friday, October 26, for a pro-


fessional training day.
In November, school will
be closed on Monday, Novem-
ber 12, for Veterans' Day and
have the usual three-day
break for Thanksgiving from
Wednesday, November 21
through Friday, November
23.
Students will have to go to
school through December 19
with December 20 starting a
two-week Christmas/New
Year break. Students and
teachers will return to work


on the same day after the
holiday, Thursday, January
3, 2008.
Students will be out on
Friday, January 18 for a
teachers' planning day that
will be part of a four-day
weekend for students with
Martin Luther King, Jr.. Day
falling on Monday, January
21, 2008.
In February, Presidents'
Day will be the lone holiday
for all personnel, as schools
will be closed on Monday,
February 18, 2008.
March will see proposed
FCAT testing with Friday,
March 21, 2008 being a
school holiday with all
schools closed. Teachers will
receive a planning day on
Thursday, March 27 with
spring break for all person-
nel running from Friday,
March 28,2008 through Sun-
day, April 6, 2008. That
translates into an 11-day
break for students and 10
days for-teachers and sup-
port staff.

high school graduations to
wrap up the school year, but
that will not be the case from
now on. A four-day weekend
is scheduled for all personnel
for Memorial Day from Fri-
day, May 23 through Mon-
day, May 26.

10, with teachers ending
their school year with one fi-
nal professional day on
Wednesday, June 11, 2008.
The school calendar was
approved with one stipula-
tion. Graduations for high
schools are still to be deter-
mined. Walton County
School Board Chairman
Mark Davis asked Dickey to
return to the calendar com-
mittee with the idea of hold-
ing two graduations a day,
mainly on Friday, Saturday,
or Monday to help out-of-
town relatives make trips
into the county. This would
provide a weekend trip for
those relatives that cannot
be away from jobs in the
middle of the week. The
board will take action on
graduation dates for 2008 af-
ter the committee returns
their recommendation.
The schedule differs from
the model used for nearly a
decade in that school will
start later, end later, see
more four-day holidays dur-
ing the year, and have the
first semester end in mid-
January as opposed to
Christmas break. This model
was used throughout most of
the 1980s in Walton County,
before FCAT existed. Re-
gardless of the start date,
students still have 180 days
to attend each year.

Red flag warning continues

for most of Florida


While the temperatures in
Florida this week are any-
thing but fiery, the threat of
brush fires has increased.
Low humidity coupled with
below average rainfall totals
for the year have created
ideal conditions for wildfires.


The National Weather Ser-
vice has issued red flag warn-
ings for much of the state. A
red flag warning means that
critical fire weather condi-
tions are either currently oc-
curring or are imminent.


If warned that a wildfire is
threatening the area, resi-
dents should listen on a bat-
tery-operated radio for re-
ports and evacuation infor-
mation. Follow the instruc-
tions of local officials.

SKIMBOARD BUILDING will be allowed to continue on this Miramar Beach residential property as a result of a Jan. 25
decision of the Walton County Zoning Board of Adjustments.




Local skimboard business



survives challenge


By DOTTY NIST
A family skimboard-build-
ing business will be able to
continue at a Miramar Beach
residence, barring a success-
ful appeal of a Jan. 25 deci-
sion by the Walton County
Zoning Board ofAdjustments
(ZBA).
Skimboards are surf-
board-type item used mainly
by young people on the
beach.
At the Jan. 25 quasi-judi-
cial hearing, local attorney
Matthew Burns successfully
defended the right of Mike
Meyer and his family to pro-
duce skimboards as a home
occupation at the Meyers'
Ellis Road residence.
The decision upheld a
March 2003 letter by Mike
Lane stating that Meyer's
business was a vested non-
conforming use in the resi-
dential area. Lane, was
county planning director at
the time.
Last month's challenge of
Lane's decision was on the
part of Bacchus Holdings, the
Mediterranea of Destin Con-


dominium Owners Associa-
tion, and Apollo Develop-
ment Enterprises, three en-
tities connected with
Mediterranea Condomini-
ums. The condominiums are
located in the vicinity of
Meyer's home and the
beachfront property where
Meyer operates a chair and
umbrella rental service.
"We thought Mike (Lane)
goofed," attorney David
Theriaque, representing
Bacchus, Apollo and
Mediterranea, told the ZBA
members.
Lane had later reversed
his decision, but in 2005
Kelly Finney, who briefly
succeeded him as planning
director, rescinded his rever-
sal as "unauthorized."
According to Meyer's tes-
timony, he has been building
skimboards on the Ellis Road
property where he resides
continuously since 1984, and
this work is the primary;
source of income supporting
himself and his family.
Walton County adopted its
first land use regulations the


"We meet the definition of home

occupation," Matthew Burns

stated.


following year, in 1985,
which placed restrictions on
activities within various clas-
sifications of property, in-
cluding residential and re-
sort.
The existence of the
skimboard business prior to
the time the code. was
adopted was questioned by
Theriaque, partly based on a
deposition several years ago
in which Meyer stated that
his skimboard building had
begun as a hobby.
In order for a business to
be vested or "grandfathered,"
Theriaque maintained, as a
legal but nonconforming use
in an area where it would not
have otherwise been allowed
to operate, "you had to be le-


gal" at the time the land use
regulations were adopted. He
contended that this was not
the case with Meyer's
skimboard business.
He argued, and submitted
supporting documentation,
that the Ellis Road property
was classified as "Resort"
when the business was
started, that the business fell
under the category of "light
industry," and that this was
not an authorized use even
at the time.
Theriaque also contended
that, even if the ZBA ac-
cepted that the business was
vested, that Meyer had vio-
lated the code by expanding
his work area on the prop-
erty. Meyer had stated in a


V





I.


2003 affidavit that he ex-
panded his workshop during
the mid-to-late 1980s.
Meyer and Burns coun-
tered that the expansion had
consisted of enclosing a
wooden deck that had existed
in 1984, resulting in no
change to the "footprint" of
the workshop.
"We meet the definition of
home occupation," Matthew
Burns stated.
He argued that, as a
"home occupation," Meyer's
business was in fact compli-
ant with county code from
the start, and that therefore
any additions would not have
represented the expansion of
a nonconformity.
Theriaque called one wit-
ness, Ron Sassano, a
Mediterranea resident, a
past president of the
Mediterranea of Destin Con-
dominium Owners Associa-
tion, and a former president
of Apollo.
Sassano said his con-
cerns were that Meyer's
property was "unkempt" and
"unsightly" and that trucks
related to the business often
blocked traffic.
Meyer said he had re-
ceived no other such com-
plaints. He added that his
property is surrounded by a
tall stuccoed fence, that he
does not sell to the public on
the property, and that deliv-
eries of materials to his prop-
erty are infrequent. There
have been no such deliveries
since September, he noted.
Offloading materials takes a
maximum of 15 minutes, he
added.
Meyer attributed Apollo
with an "ulterior motive" in
filing the case against him.

Colburn is top pick


for SWFD chief


By DOTTY NIST
The time appears to be
near for a new chief to come
on board with the South Wal-
ton Fire District (SWFD.)

District fire commission-
ers spent all day interview-
ing the seven final candi-
dates for the job on Feb. 5
and voted to select their top
choice at their regular meet-
ing late Monday afternoon:
The independent special
district began its search pro-
cess .for a new chief two
months ago following the res-
ignation of Les Hallman from
that position. The opening
drew 75 candidates from all
over the U.S.
Hallman, a 25-year vet-
eran in his field, had served
as SWFD chief for over a de-
cade. His resignation was
prompted by an appointment
to serve as the new director
of the state Fire Marshal's
Office.
Ray Colburn of the Reedy
Creek Improvement District
was the unanimous choice of
the SWFD fire commission-
ers to succeed Hallman.
SWFD Chairman Maurice
Gilbert was directed to con-
tact Colburn and start nego-
tiations with the goal of get-
ting the candidate on board
as soon as possible, tentative
on an agreement on salary,
benefits, start date and other
pertinent details being
achieved.
Colburn, currently fire
and emergency services chief
of the Reedy Creek Improve-
ment District, has been em-
ployed for that district, lo-
cated 15 miles southwest of
Orlando, for the past 27
years. The district is a pub-


lic corporation of the state,
serving a 39-square-mile
area that encompasses Waljt
Disney World and the sur-
rounding area of the theme
park and resort.
Jack Abbit, SWFD vice
chairman, was the fire com-
missioners' representative
on the selection committee
for the new chief. Abbit noted
that the SWFD felt that
Colburn's experience in pro-
viding fire protection and
emergency services to a com-
munity which includes a
large number of theme park
and resort guests and celeb-
rities would translate well to
service in the south Walton
County community, with its
large influx of visitors and
seasonal residents.
Abbit added that Colburn
"matched all our require-
ments" with regard to years
in management, years as
chief officer, experience in a
special fire district, educa-
tional achievement, and pro-
fessional certification.
He added that Colburn is
familiar with advanced life
support, and that his knowl-
edge of all state statutes is a
bonus for the candidate.
Abbit commented that the
selection process had been
intense and time consuming
but that it was undertaken
gladly for the benefit of resi-
dents in the service area.
"We're doing everything
we can to support this com-
munity," he said.
He expressed appreciation
to the two other members of
the search committee, Destin
Fire Chief Tuffy Dixon and
Sylvia Hanks of Sandestin
Resort's human resources
department.

He testified that Apollo
had tried to force him to sell I
the beachfront parcel where
he operates his beach rental
business, threatening to
have his workshop shut
down if he refused.
"In my opinion, this is ex-
tortion," Meyer said.
Theriaque countered that
it was Meyer who had
started all the conflict. He
explained that his clients
were trying to buy Meyer's
beach property so that
Mediterranea guests could
cross over it to the beach
without Meyer threatening
to have them arrested for
trespassing.
"If Mr. Meyer had sold his
"sand," would we be here to-
day?" ZBA member Flip
Spann IV asked Theriaque.
Theriaque responded no,
that the matter would have
been resolved between the
parties.
"We would not have chal-
lenged his illegal business,"
he said.
"It's interesting that we
just have one complaint on
Mr. Meyer's business," said
ZBA Chairman Joe Johnson.
"I don't think traffic is an
issue or we would have other
people here to complain," he
added.
ZBA member Rob Neale
moved to grant Apollo's ap-
peal requesting overturn of
Mike Lane's letter that had
deemed Meyer's business
"grandfathered" or vested.

The motion was denied in a
1-6 vote, resulting in Meyer
being allowed to continue op-
eration of the skimboard
building business on his
property.

years and always made the women feel special no matter what
their age," said Ellen. "He was a dear friend to me and I will
miss him."


HUGS AMONF FRIENDS of Dave Dickerson provide
comfort as they celebrate his life at Pandora's in Grayton Beach
January 25. Pandora's general manager, Mark Doherty (back
to camera), tearfully shared memories of his 10-year friendship
with Dave. "Dave's passing marks the end of an era in Grayton
Beach," said Mark. "A Bohemian era when friendships among
the locals from all walks of life were more important than big
bucks. We genuinely cared for and looked out for one another
during the good times and the bad times."

Considered one of
the top cultural
events in the Florida
Panhandle, the 2007
Chautauqua Assem-
bly returns to DeFu-
niak Springs this
weekend. The objec-
tive this year is to
entertain, educate
and appeal to all
those who attend.

Traditionally, this is the
downtime for Florida Emer-
ald Coast residents. The
grass is brown, the gulf wa-
ters are in the 50s, traffic is
minimal and the spring
break rush hasn't quite
started. But around Walton
County, there is plenty to
keep you busy and keep you
well-informed.
-In DeFuniak Springs, the
weekend-long, 12th annual
Chautauqua Assembly cel-
ebration gets kicked off. It
gets a head start on the
weekend with opening cer-
emonies, concerts, lectures
and other events all around
the city on Thursday.
Once again, DeFuniak
Springs becomes the cultural
center of north Florida and
opens its doors to a wide va-
riety of artists, lecturers, per-


former, demonstrations and
tourists. It is the place to be
if one wants to learn and be
entertained for four days.
Ann Robinson, president of
the Florida Chautauqua As-
sembly, has worked tirelessly
with numerous volunteers in
making this the most memo-
rable, educational and enter-
taining event thus for. With
an array of lectures, demon-
strations, exhibits and con-
certs, the assembly will once
again wow and inspire all
those who attend.

One of the main objectives is
getting more of the local
people involved with this
year's assembly. It is the lo-
cals that volunteer their time
and efforts to make this
event successful and it is lo-
cals that help sponsor the
event.
But the event is not only


for those tourists who travel
from all across the nation to
attend, it is also designed to
appeal to the locals. With dis-
cussions and lectures on
"Talking With the Animals"
and history of religion in
Scotland, concerts by organ-
ists Robert Leslie, the Scot-
tish performers, the Ecu-
menical Choir of South Wal-
ton and the Sawmill Band;
art exhibits by the
Chautauqua porcelain art-
ists and quilters and the
Walton County Art League,
the four-day event has been
designed to appeal to all
ages, races and classes.
Throughout the weekend,
various demonstrations will
also take place such as war
re-enactment around Lake
DeFuniak. It is a step back
in history as numerous mili-
tary personal, doctors, cooks
and even children, re-enact


life during the time of the
Civil War.
For a quick sugar rush and
a chance to rest your feet
and mind, the Sweetheart
Serenade Tea returns for af-
ternoon tea. Homemade deli-
cacies, served on fine china
and formal laid table-cloths,
will entice and entertain
hundreds throughout the
weekend.
Throughout the informa-
tional, educational and en-
tertaining weekend, a host of
presenters will take center
stage to discuss a variety of
topics that include religion,
finance, architecture, his-
tory, pets, art, food, terror-
ism, comedy and much more.
From tickling the funny
bone, to wiping away a tear,
this year's assembly will
have it all.
For more information, call
Susan Bakalo at the Florida
Chautauqua Center at 892-
7613. To volunteer for any of
the events call Marie Hinson
at 892-9578.

The Florida Chautauqua
Assembly has so many rea-
sons to be celebrated and at-
tended. To many it is a
chance to hear, see and learn
about what is going on in our
world. For others it is'a les-
son in history, a reminder of
the present-day, and a
glimpse of future events.


DR. ROBERT LESLIE WILL ONCE'again perform at this
year's Chautauqua Assembly. He is one of many hat will be
spotlighted during the weekend-long event.

FROM FRONT


nts will county has been unable to approve new developments due
to lack of traffic capacity on some roadway sections.
According to State Rep. Ray Sansom (R-Destin,) this is
the type of situation that Proportionate Fair Share was
meant to address.
Sansom said the legislators' "intent was very good."
The idea, he explained, was that road level of service
should not slow projects down, but that instead that devel-
opers would have the option to. pay their "fair share" toward
road improvements and then "go forward."
#161G He said it was never contemplated that developers would
have to pay "the full amount" for road improvements, as some
very high cost estimates in connection with the new pro-
gram have indicated.
He promised that lawmakers would address the inequi-
ties in how developers' costs are being calculated with re-
gard to the legislation.
"We'll do that this session," Sansom pledged.
Pat Blackshear, Walton County planning and development
linson's services director, described a somewhat unique situation in

by the county.
"People could pay and go with no problem," she explained.
The "bog-down" came in connection with state roads where
state officials were required to concur with the county re-
garding cost estimates for developer payments, Blackshear
noted.
Questions, which have yet to be answered, were, "How
much, when and who holds the money?" she explained. She

Febru- The Florida Legislature's
Special Session that was
om No- called in Jan. 2007 to deal
with insurance issues is over.
Walton County residents
and builders working in Wal-
January ton County will be affected by
the new legislation that was
signed into law by Governor
Crist on Jan. 25, 2007. -
)6-2007 Following the devastation
ts of Hurricane Andrew in
School 1992, the legislature estab-
Dates- lished a Florida Building
Code that was designed to
provide greater windstorm
protection for new buildings.
Northwest Florida was ex-
rch 15 empted from the windstorm
provisions by the legislature
public at the time. The new law
pea and takes the "Panhandle exemp-
rs to be tion" out to make the build-

appeal ing codes consistent across
ncil with the State of Florida.
ered at Part of this act requires
person each jurisdiction having au-

person thority to enforce the Florida
erbatim Building Code to require
made, wind-borne-debris protection
stimony that complies with the Inter-
appeal national Building Code
(2006) and the International
CHOOL Residential Code (2006)
)UNCIL within the "windborne-debris

person, region." Walton County, as
Schools are all Florida counties, is a
eselnik, jurisdiction required to en-
rdinator force the Florida Building
#166G Code.
#166G The Florida Building Com-
mission has until July 1,
2007 to change the Florida
Building Code, but Walton
County must enforce the In-
ternational Building Code re-
E SOLD quirements immediately.

NORTH, The Florida Home Builders
Association has sent a letter
to Governor Crist asking him
to issue an Executive Order
delaying the implementation
until July 1, 2007. No action
has been taken on this re-
quest as of yet.
Specific changes' that will
affect Walton County build-
ers and homeowners are:
The "windborne-debris
region" includes all areas in
the 120 mph and above zone.
In Walton County this previ-


ously meant only the coastal
areas. The new 120 mph
zone now takes in areas as
far north as Mossy Head,
Woodlawn and the Bruce and
Red Bay area around Rock
Hill Road.
*The code still allows -ply-
wood panels as wind-storm
protection shutters for 1 and
2 story buildings, but
changes the fastening re-
quirements.
Does away with the "Par-
tially Enclosed" provision
that exempted builders from
having to protect-openings.
In other Building Depart-
ment changes effective
March 8, 2007, Walton
County will be requiring
plans to be submitted 'and
reviewed for all new con-
struction over 400 square
feet. Plans for structures lo-
cated in the Coastal Con-
struction Zone must be de-
signed, signed and. sealed
with a raised, seal by an Ar-.
chitect or Engineer.
A scaled plot plan or certi-
fied survey showing all im-
provements both existing
and proposed, roads, ease-
ments, preservation area and
right of ways must be sub-
mitted for all building appli-
cations for lots less than 1
acre in size.
A certified foundation sur-
vey will be required after the
foundation is in place and
before the framing inspection
for lots less than 1 acre in
size.
Builders in Walton County
and property owners who are
in the process of constructing
new homes should contact
the Walton County Building
Department for more infor-
mation. The Building De-
partment can be reached at
892-8160 in DeFuniak
Springs, or at 267-2084 south
of the Bay at 46 Coastal Cen-
tre Boulevard. Maps and fur-
ther information will also be
posted on the Walton County
web site at

comes available.

Pelham.
Pelham explained that S.B. 360 was put together on the
last day of the 2005 legislative session. "There were no pub-
lic hearings," he said, adding that, had there been, what was
approved would likely have been somewhat different.
"This is complex legislation. It is .complex even for people
who work with it every day," Pelham added.
The traffic portion of the legislation is generating the most
comment, and this is taking place statewide, he said.
The idea for Proportionate Fair Share, that "the devel-
oper should not be held up," is simple in concept, he contin-
ued, however, when payments are being .calculated, the
amount "encompasses some of the existing deficiency...that
you did not create."
Those payments also get passed on to the consumer,
Pelham noted.
He assured the attendees that DCA is committed to mak-
ing the program work so that the "burden of past sins" of
insufficient infrastructure is not put on "the next person who
comes in the door with a development."
State Department of Transportation (DOT) Interim Dis-
trict Secretary Larry Kelley saw some flexibility with the
law that would 'allow for some "innovative solutions" to some
of the problems that had been identified.
"We want the system to work," Kelley said, pledging to sit
down with local government officials to work out agreements
to make sure that it works in a fair manner.
"The intent is to help, and if we have to fix it, we will,"
pledged Rep. Marti Coley (R-Marianna.)
Coley suggested that state and local officials do whatever
they can to make the law work fairly while lawmakers seek
a more permanent legislative remedy.
Don Gaetz (R-Niceville,) also pledged to support changes
to the law in the Senate, with the goal of providing "a fair
shot for people who invest their capital."
Micheal Mead, a local attorney representing developers,
warned that the "ripple affect" of the slowdown on projects
would have wide-reaching effects, along with putting many
people in the labor force out of work.
Albert Paris, a 25-year area resident, realtor and chair-
man of the Walton County Planning Commission, was of the
opinion that the program was resulting in a decline in prop-
erty values.
Paris said his-real estate company had recently lost sev-
eral sales contracts for parcels on U.S. 331 due to high Pro-
portionate Fair Share cost estimates to develop. He said he
was told a developer would have to contribute $385,000 to
proceed with a convenience store on the highway.
Chamber President Dawn Moliterno thanked all the par-
ticipants. She encouraged citizens to continue to communi-
cate with legislators.
She also asked the panel members to come back again in
four to five months if there was'no resolution to the situa-
tion within that time frame.
