Walton County abandons


part of McCullough Road


By DOTTY NIST
What was referred to as "a
little pig trail" generated a
big controversy on March 26
as Walton County commis-
sioners pondered whether to
abandon a quarter-mile sec-
tion of McCullough Road.
Several of the citizens
speaking at the abandon-
ment hearing expressed re-
gret at the way opposing
views on the road had pitted
community members against
one another for years.
Over a dozen area resi-
dents and other citizens gave
their opinion on the matter.
Located northeast of the
Liberty community, the
1,140-foot-long road section
runs north-south, connecting
Thompson Road and County
Highway 1084.
It was uncertain whether,


there was in fact anything to
abandon, since there was no
record of the right-of-way be-
ing deeded to the county.
However, Deputy Public
Works Director Allen Brown
was aware of the county hav-
ing maintained that portion
of the road at times during
the past, possibly establish-
ing a prescriptive easement
for public use. That mainte-
nance has not occurred for
many years.
Mike Burke, county attor-
ney, said he had recom-
mended the abandonment
hearing because there is "at
least a question". as to
whether the county has some


claim to the road.
Two attendees estimated
that the road had first been
graded in the early 1940s.
Steve and Jackie Herring,
owners of farm property ad-
joining the road section in
question, commented that
water coming off the road
floods their pastures. Jackie
Herring stated that, without
the road section being closed,
the couple would have to ask
the county to spend money to
fix drainage problems con-
nected with the road.
The road section has been
. opened and closed a number
see ROAD 13-A


"I just want it to be settled," said
McCullough Road resident Wayne Bishop.


WALTON COUNTY school bus driver Angela Fields encour-
aged county commissioners to keep McCullough Road open
and maintain the road. She said being able to use the con-
nector road it would make her route safer and help other
drivers as well.

The state had charged
Coyote Land Company,
owner of Coyote East Con-
struction and Demolition
Debris Disposal, with viola-
tion of state statutes.
The settlement agreed to
by Coyote states that the
payment of fines does not
"constitute an admission of

In November 2006, DEP
had issued a notice of viola-
tion, ordered corrective ac-
tion, and called for an admin-

According to DEP's notice
of violation, water quality re-
ports between August 2004
and October had indicated
that contaminants in moni-
toring wells and surface wa-
ter compliance sites at the
'facility exceeded state stan-
dards. The notice of violation
stated that Coyote had been
repeatedly notified of "the
exceedences" and instructed
"to initiate a site assessment"


set a special workshop
to hear a presentation
by DEP regarding the
Coyote Landfill. The
workshop will begin at
3:30 p.m. on Tuesday,
April 10.

The notice further alleged
that Coyote "has failed to
submit a Site Assessment
Report ('SAR') within 270
days of the discharge or dis-
covery of contaminants," as
required by state law, The
notice referenced a letter
from DEP to Coyote dated
July 19, 2006, approving an
extension of the deadline for
submittal of the SAR until
August 20, 2006.
The notice also alleged
that Coyote failed to submit

the extended deadline "until

August 20, 2006.

Leaders join together for Domestic

Violence Awareness luncheon


Walton County community
leaders joined the Okaloosa
Walton Domestic Violence
Coordinating Council's
(DVCC) Walton County Com-
mittee in a luncheon discuss-
ing the impact of domestic
violence on Walton County.
The Bureau of Justice Sta-
tistics Crime Data Brief in
2003 reported that every day
in the United States more
than three women are mur-
dered by their husbands or
boyfriends.
Brenda Porter, State


Attorney's Office District
One, presented domestic vio-
lence statistics, "In 2005,
120,386 domestic violence of-
fenses were reported to the
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement. 563 of those
. cases were in Walton County,
showing over a 25 percent
increase from 2004. The
State Attorney's office had
216 battery cases reported as
of February 2007, while
there were 307 battery cases
for the entire year of 2006."
Charity Parker, COPE


Center said "Many agencies
have services for victims of
crime, but a vital piece of the
continuum of care for victims
of domestic violence is miss-
ing in Walton County. Vic-
tims and their children must
travel over 50 miles to Shel-
ter House in Okaloosa
County at a time of crisis,
where transportation is not
always available. The DVCC
Walton County Committee's
goal is to build a safe domes-
tic violence shelter in Walton
County and we need your
support."

Jeannette Debs, Executive
Director of Shelter House,
reminded everyone that
Shelter House has an out-
reach office in DeFuniak
Springs that serves victims
of domestic violence. She
also said,. "Habitat for Hu-
imanity of Walton County has

building a shelter, if we can
find land, building materials,
and operating funds."

DeFuniak Springs Police changes look


Starting the week of April 1,
the DeFuniak Springs Police De-
partment (DFSPD) will be receiv-
ing new vehicles to be used in its
Patrol Division. The cruisers are
2007 Crown Victorias that are
equipped. with the most up-to-
date equipment, with the excep-
tion of laptop computers.

The new cruisers are tradi-
tional "black and whites" with red
and blue emergency light bars
mounted on top. The word "po-
lice" is displayed in large letters,
along with a gold badge affixed
on the front fenders, all trimmed
in gold.All the vehicles will have
additional lighting deck and grill
strobes, and headlight wig-wags-
to be used during emergency
travel, traffic stops, funeral es-
corts, traffic control, etc.
Many other safety and techno-
logical features are part of the
new vehicles, such as roof-
mounted shotgun holders and


flashlights mounted in areas for
sudden need.
In addition to the fleet of cruis-
ers, DFSPD will receive one new
2007 Ford spor t utility vehicle
for its K-9 unit. The SUV will
be identical to the other Crown
Victorias and have the same
equipment, but will also be
equipped with a K-9 holder.
DFSPD expectsthe entire fleet of
marked vehicles to be in opera-
tion by the end of April.
As of last month all DFSPD
sworn personnel have been issued
new 12- gauge Remington shot-
guns, and Glock .40 caliber side
arms after receiving training for
their new weapons. Officers also
received additional uniforms, new
leather gear, and other equipment.
Some of these items were pur-
chased with money seized from
local drug arrest the department
has made in recent months.
"We are grateful to city offi-
cials for increasing our general


operating budget that has enabled
us to purchase better equipment
that will offer our citizens and
officers additional safety while
presenting a more professional


image," said City Marshal Mike
Adkinson.
"Those who volunteer to serve
in DeFuniak Springs deserve the
very best," he concluded.

Things you


didn't know

By RON KELLEY


THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, APRIL 5, 2007


1 '."Copyrighted Material -

./ f Syndicated Content -

Available from Commercial News Providers"


N'o i 11 ago, a friend sent
an e-mail to me that in-
cluded a list of tantalizing
new a.tr s that weren't
known until the last couple
,.-' \; .1: -. The list of things
you didn't know was com-
piled by Tampa Tribune
writer Jeff Houck.
His first example was a
buck-toothed, rock-climbing
catfish with suckers. Ap-
parently, on the island of
Borneo in Southeast Asia,
scientists have discovered a
new species of catfish with
protruding teeth and suc-
tion-cups on its belly that
help it stick to rocks. Weird,
but did you hear about the
new species of shark that
walks along the ocean floor
on its fins?
Houck also noted that an
impact crater 18 miles in di-
ameter was found 12,500
feet under the Indian Ocean.
I think I saw that movie.
A new planet described as
a "super-Earth," which
weighs 13 times as much as
our planet, exists in a solar
system 9,000 light-years
away. Wasn't that on an epi-
sode of "Twilight Zone"?
The hole in the earth's
ozone layer is closing and
could be entirely closed by
2050. Meanwhile, the-
amount of greenhouse gases
is increasing. Uh-oh. That
movie was an inconvenient
truth for some politicos.
Some of us found out what
parents have suspected all
along the part of the brain
that regulates reasoning, im-
pulse control and judgment
is still under construction
during puberty and doesn't
shift into first gear until
about age 25. That probably
clears up a lot about Britney
Spears and Paris Hilton.
The French have always
known that wine was good
for you, but did they know
that red wines from south-
west France and Sardinia
have the highest concentra-
tions of chemical compounds
that promote heart health?
Red wine also contains anti-
inflammatory chemicals


that fight off diseases affect-
ing the gums and bone
around the teeth. More im-
portantly, a substance called
resveratrol, also found in red
wine, protects mice from obe-
sity and the effects of aging,
and perhaps could do the
same for humans.
That's big news because
Americans are also living
longer. In 2005, U.S. life ex-
pectancy reached a record
high of 77.9 years.
Maybe we should start
toasting to living longer, be-
ing slimmer, looking younger
and having better teeth!
Blue light fends off
drowsiness in the middle of
the night, which could be
useful to people who work at
night. Or spend hours
perched in front of their com-
puters or hunched over their
control sticks.
Americans spent almost
$32 billion on toys during
2005. About a third of that
was spent on video games.
That may explain why at
least once a week, 28 percent
of high school students fall
asleep in school. About 14
percent get to school late or
miss school because they
overslept.
If the pollen is getting you
down, 30 minutes of continu-
ous kissing can diminish the
body's allergic reaction to
pollen, relaxing the body and
reducing production of his-
tamine, a chemical cell given
out in response to allergens.
The practice can also lead
to visits from the stork, sur-
prises in the cabbage patch
and little warm buns in the
oven.
In closing, the writer
noted that researchers from
the University of Manches-
ter managed to induce teeth
growth in normal chickens -
activating genes that have
lain dormant for 80 million
years.
That, at least answers the
age-old question of why the
chicken crossed the road to
bite the rabbit for stealing
the eggs.
Have a Good Friday.


HAPPY EASTER!

Editor:
On March 26, the Walton County Board of Commissioners
conducted a charade in the guise of a public hearing.
Ostensibly, this meeting was to determine whether or not
to abandon McCullough Road. Prior to this meeting, the plan-
ning commission had voted, four to one, against abandon-
ment.
There is no plan for managing development in the north-
ern part of the county and therefore nothing upon which to
base conjectures for future traffic needs. These factors fig-
ured into the decision against abandonment. This informa-
tion was presented at the March 26 BCC meeting. Much of
S- what was presented by the supporters of abandonment at
the meeting was emotional in nature. In contrast, informa-
tion supporting non-abandonment was mostly logical.
Included was information from a long time school bus
driver that stated abandonment would force an unsafe ma-
never when picking up children in the neighborhood. Dr.
Garcia expressed concern for emergency egress and ingress
- it severe weather when his assisted-living facility is opened.
None of the arguments against abandonment seemed to
impress any commissioner other than Ms. Meadows.
Representatives from the Public Works Department were
asked if changes to intersecting Thompson Road would ad-
dress safety concerns. Their answer was in the affirmative,
but contained no information regarding the scope of work or
,* cost. There was no cost/benefit data, pro or con, ever placed
in evidence. The final vote was four to one for abandonment.
Consensus among attendees was that the Commissioners
S. had made the decision to abandon the road prior to the mee'-

"Facts do not cease to exist because they
are ignored."
-- Aldous L. Huxley, British writer

'The final test of a leader is that he leaves
behind him in other men the conviction to
carry on." -
Walter Lippmann, newspaper columnist


Editor:
On Tuesday, March 27, 2007,1 I sent an email to the county
commissioners letting them know I would like to see Padgett
Road, that runs between 183-B and .1883, be made into a
nature trail. Part of the road is now closed but people are
driving their ATVs on it and across the bridge over Sandy
Creek.
All it would take is to put a walkway around the gate on
the West end, and walk-way on the existing bridge not wide
enough to drive on, but just to walk on with guard rails or a
wire fence so no one could fall off.
This would make about one-mile trail, one way, good for
this part of the county.
People, please let them know how you feel.
Thank you
David E. Hackett

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, APRIL 5, 2007


THIS DEMOCRAT "is
mad as h---, and he's not go-
ing to take it anymore."
Raymond W. Ross, right, who
has lost one family member
to war and has a nephew
headed to Iraq, held up a
placard apologizing for his
party's stand on funding the
Iraqi War.
After protesting in DeFu-
niak Springs, Ross said he
was going to the East Gate at
Eglin Air Force Base and
show his support for the
troops and their mission.

Recently a fact finding
group of county and city offi-
cials visited senior centers in
Geneva, AL, Florala, AL, and
Fort Walton Beach, FL.
As a result a proposed
floor plan has been developed
by the county engineering
staff. Anew 4,000 square feet
building is scheduled to be
built. It will eventually be
connected to the current
building) and provide about
10,000 square feet of total
space for Walton County se-
niors.
This is a project of the
board of county commission-
ers and the city council of
DeFuniak Springs to estab-
lish a senior citizen service
center for recreation and en-
tertainment.
These agencies have
worked closely together to
improve recreation through-
out the county, and now have
included the senior citizen
population and their special
needs.
;The public is invited to a,


presentation by J.B. Hillard,
chair of the College Ave.
Complex committee. This
will be held on Monday, April


9, at 1 p.m. at the Extension
Services office on North 9th
Street, in DeFuniak Springs,

RAYMOND W. ROSS, a walton County Democrat, was incensed by his party's vote on
the funding of the Iraqi War. Ross told the Herald, "I am ashamed of the Democrats' actions
and I want to apologize for this decision. I want everyone to know that I don't agree with

Ross stood in the Wayside Park at the intersection of U.S. 90 and U.S. 331S and dis-

Walton students get the

,word on substance abuse


PUPPETS ON STRINGS,
above, controlled by drugs
and alcohol, at WHS sub-
stance abuse presentation.


ANGELA,
WHS.


juvenile offender, tells her story to students at


By BRUCE COLLIER
Juniors and seniors at
'Walton High School (WHS)
got some straight talk last
week from local and state
-aw enforcement officers,
along with messages from a
juvenile offender and the fa-
ther of a girl killed by a
drunk driver.
The campaign was a joint
effort by DeFuniak Springs
'ity Marshal Mike
Adkinson, Lt. Michael
Barker, Walton County Pre-
vention Coalition (WCPC),
,Walton County Underage
drinking Taskforce (UDT),
the Florida Department of
4Juvenile Justice (DJJ),
,Okaloosa-Walton Chapter for
.Mothers Against Drunk
EDriving (MADD), the, Florida
Division of Alcoholic Bever-
!ages and Tobacco (ABT), and
a group of local teenage stu-
dents representing Students
Against Destructive Deci-
sion-Making (SADD).
WHS school resource of-
ficer Artie Rodriguez started
off, standing in front a pro-
jected photo of a crumpled
police vehicle, smashed up by
a drunken driver. "I was in
that vehicle," said Rodriguez.
"They had to use the jaws of
life to get me out." Rodriguez
went on to say that the inju-
ries he sustained altered his
career plans as a police of-
ficer.
Adkinson spoke next on
underage drinking and driv-
ing under the influence. He
asked students to spare him
the "heartbreaking experi-
ence" of having to inform
their families that they
would not be coming home.
He also promised those who
insisted on drinking and
driving, "we're going to en-
force the law."
COPE/SADD representa-
tive Jennifer Parker, who lost
a brother in a DUI-related
accident, spoke of the UDT's
mission to increase aware-
ness of the risks of substance
abuse, and invited students
to an April 6 "Spring Bling."
The Bling is a drug-free and
alcohol-free party featuring
games and sports activities,
as an alternative to spring
break drinking and partying.
WHS students took the
stage next with a dance and
music presentation drama-
tizing the lack of personal
freedom resulting from drug
and alcohol abuse. Drinking
and drug-using students
were presented as life-sized
"puppets," being controlled

by spectral figures of death.
A video presentation fol-
lowed, in which a teenager
observed "all it takes is one
lame decision" to ruin a
person's life.
Pete Woiniewicz of MADD
spoke, starting off by asking
the students "what does a 72-
year-old man have to say to
you?" Woiniewicz lost his 17-
year-old daughter when a.ve-
hicle she was riding in was
struck by two drunk.drivers
in succession.
ABT agent Paul
Fleischman gave a talk on
undercover agents and en-
forcement of the law among
spring breakers. Fleischman
told the students that he usu-
ally works in plainclothes,
and that ABT agents often
pass undetected among
spring breakers. Fleischman
got an amazed response from


the audience when he told
them that a recent two-week
spring break in Panama City
had resulted in 1,000 arrests
for drug and alcohol-related
offenses.
Closing out the presenta-
tion was a 17-year-old named
Angela, presently serving
probation with DJJ. Talking
to the students in their own
terms, she told how drugs
and alcohol led her to bur-
glary, theft, and prosecution.
"It's hard to get a job, I may
not get into college," she said.
At the close of the pro-
gram, the students stopped
by tables and displays in the
lobby, picking up brochures
and information from the
agencies and organizations
involved in the campaign.
The sponsors plan to make
similar. presentations at
other area schools.

Working wages in Walton

part three the Walton County School District


By RONKELLEY
In an effort to keep the
public informed about how
their tax dollars are spent,
the DeFuniak Springs Her-
ald and The Beach Breeze
have closely examined the
wages of Walton County offi-
cials and staff alike. The Wal-
ton County Taxpayers Asso-
ciation requested the same
information and have posted
the raw data on their Web
site.
Herald-Breeze readers
have learned about the
amount of salary paid to
county staff for the last two
years and which positions re-
ceived raises and by what
amount. So far, salaries in
the offices of the Walton
County Commission, the
Walton County Clerk of the
Circuit Court, the Walton
County Tax Collector and the
Walton County Property Ap-
praiser have been presented.
The final installment of
this three-part series will ex-
amine the Walton County
School District.
Although the school dis-
trict employs over 1,000
people, the salaries of all but
41 people are covered
through the teachers' union,
the Walton County Educa-
tion Association, which nego-
tiates for their salaries and
raises. Only 41 employees,
mostly administrators, have
salaries that are set and ap-
proved by the Walton County
School Board.
As with other elected po-
sitions here, the salary for
superintendent of schools is
set by the state.
In Walton County, the job
pays $100,672 per year.
Ironically, the members of
the Walton County School
Board set their own salary.
This year's board member
salary was $27,496 per year.
Among administrators,
salaries ranged this year
from $60,329 for an admin-
istrative assistant to princi-
pal, (a new position), up to
$91,944 for the chief finan-
cial officer (CFO) and the su-
pervisor of central services
(SCS). The CFO's raise from
last year was 6 percent, while
the SCS got a 6.3 percent in-
crease. The supervisor of cur-
riculum received a 7.2 per-
cent raise from last years'
salary to arrive at $91,280 for
the 2006-07 term.


With only one exception,
the pay raises ranged from 6
percent to 7.7 percent. The
biggest increase went to the
school district's transporta-
tion director, who received a
whopping 25 percent in-
crease this year. The almost
$18,000 raise brought the
salary from $71,084 up to
$88,982.
The second highest per-
centage raise (7.7 percent)
came to the MIS coordinator
for an- annual salary of
$76,115.
Salaries for school princi-
pals ranged from $80,781 at
Bay Elementary, up to
$90,332 at Emerald Coast
Middle School, followed


closely by Walton High
School at $90,312.
Principals and adminis-
trators, much like teachers,
are paid in accordance with
their experience, their lon-
gevity with Walton County
and educational degrees.
Still, it makes for some inter-
esting data.
For instance, the assistant
principal at Van R. Butler
Elementary makes more
than the school principals at
Freeport Middle, Bay El-
ementary, West DeFuniak
Elementary and the same as
the Freeport Elementary
principal.
All totaled, these 41 prin-
cipals and administrators ac-

Compared to other county
government offices, the
school district's raises by per-
centage are among the low-
est, along with the tax
collector's office. The Walton
County Commission gave the
highest average wage in-
creases by far, followed by
increases for hourly workers
in the election supervisor's
office.

Patients across the country
have been raving about this new
technology from Beltone!


Zig Ziglar, master of motivation, has inspired millions with his advice on
rising to the top, overcoming weakness, attracting success and developing
an optimistic, healthy attitude. He's also a Beltone OnelM wearer. Here's
what he has to say:

"Many beautiful sounds come from conversation, music, and life in general,
but many people are unable to hear those beautiful sounds because of
impaired hearing. Not long ago I was among that group, but thanks to
Beltone's incredible new One!"' hearing aid I now enjoy to a much greater
degree every experience in my life. It's safe to say I tried at least seven or
eight other devices with no result. The new Beltone hearing aids really
do the job. And my wife absolutely loves them, tool She no longer has
h to raise her voice to communicate with me. Give them a try. Call your
local Beltone provider and tell them you want a chance to hear better,
and ask for Beltone One""'. You'll be glad you did!"V

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS

ROAD
FROM FRONT
of times, most recently last
year by Steve Herring. Her-
ring told the commissioners
that he closed the road after
being told by John Johnson,
former county public works
director, that the county had
no claim on the road and
Herring could do as he
wished with it. Herring said
he had also consulted with
District 3 Commissioner
Larry Jones before putting a
fence across the road.
Jones stated that in con-
versations with Herring he
had relied on the opinion of
the county attorney at that
time that Walton County had
no ownership interest.
Herring said that as a re-
sult of having the road
clsoed, he was sued by Cortez
Thompson.
Jackie Herring said that
the matter has been very up-
setting, that a number of
false accusations have been
made in the community
against her husband, and
that being involved in a law-
suit has cost the couple a lot
of money.
Thompson was present
and later stated he had used
the road all his life. He con-
tended that the drainage
problems originate from the
Herrings' property, not the
road. He added that he had
hired attorney Bill Jennings
to try to obtain an easement
on the road section, which he
intended to deed to the
county' for public use.
Thompson said he has
been shunned in the commu-
nity because of his stand on
the road.
"Everybody treats me like
I've got typhoid fever," he
complained.
Walton County school bus
driver Angela Fields urged
the commissioners to keep
the road open and maintain
it. She said being able to use
the road on her bus route
would eliminate a "danger-
ous turn around."
"It will make it easier for
everyone," she said.
Fields explained she can-
no.t travel on the rcod .--L ti1-,n
now because the cleared part


HERALD, THURSDAY, MARCH
is so narrow and is flanked
by trees and bushes that
scrape the sides of her school
bus.
Several attendees com-
mented that the road surface
had been considerably wider
in the past at times when the
road was better maintained.
Downtown Liberty resi-
dent Coy Bell's opinion was,
"There's no use spending
money on that little road."
Bell said there had "never
been a ditch" on either side
of the road.
Several other area resi-
dents and property owners
agreed that it would be a
waste of tax money to try to
fix problems with the road.
"The main thing that
hurts me about it is that it's
caused a neighborhood dis-
sension," said Toni Norman,
a 26-year area resident.
"I just want it to be
settled," McCullough Road
resident Wayne Bishop said
about the matter.
Gene Ryan, former county
commissioner, commented
that there is currently no fu-
ture development plan for
northern Walton County---
and that it is not possible to
know whether the road sec-
tion might "play a critical
role" someday. He urged the
commissioners to follow the
recommendation that the
planning commission had
made when the abandon-
ment proposal had come be-
fore them last summer---and
keep the road open to the
public.
Several other attendees
echoed that sentiment.
"The road can be main-
tained," said Randall
Infinger, another former
county commissioner. He
said that county engineering
consultants had prepared a
plan to fix the road at one
point.
Infinger also stated that
alternate route Thompson
Road "itself is dangerous."
Carolyn Bludworth said of
the section proposed for
abandonment, "It appears
this outlet was seen as a need
or possible utility (easement)
years and years ago when
population' was much less,
hi-' '.uld that ni, ,i] ,:-rease
in these growth years of the


I 29, 2007
future?"
Area resident and physi-
cian Reuben Garcia recalled
that at one point in 1998 he
was able to get to and from
the hospital to see his pa-
tiente only by using the road
section in question when Th-
ompson road was impassible
due to Hurricane Georges'
impacts.
In contrast, a county staff
report by Project Manager
Mark T. Martin, prepared for
the March 26 abandonment
hearing, included a finding of
fact that the closed road sec-
tion '"does not appear to serve
any current or future public
purpose."
"Current public rights of
way provide adequate traffic
circulation and access for
public utilities," Martin's re-
port concluded.
Assistant County Engi-
neer Aaron Warren told the
commissioners that a traffic
analysis done on the road
counted an average of just
four trips per day.
Warren added that the
width of the section is insuf-
ficieilt for two vehicles to ap-
proach each other and pass.
Further, the Walton County
Land Development Code re-
quires a 50-foot right-of-way
for roads.
District 4 Commissioner
Sara Comander said that
many of the comments made
her think that Thompson
Road was the real problem
to address.
She asked Warren if it
would be possible to fix those
problems, and if all the resi-
dents could get to and from
their property via Thompson
Road if the section on
McCullough Road were
abandoned.
Warren answered both
questions in the affirmative.
Codnander called for pri-
oritizing improvements and
maintenance on Thompson
Road in the interest of effi-
cient ingress and egress and
safety, including seeking ad-
ditiopal right-of-way to mod-
erate a sharp 90-degree turn
on the road.
Jones stated that, based
on "what we know" he would
move for approval of the
abarldonment of the
McCullough Road section.


District 1 Commissioner
Scott Brannon seconded, and
the motion was approved 4-
1, with District 5 Commis-
sioner Cindy Meadows vot-
ing no.
Meadowvs commented fol-
lowing the meeting that, af-
ter listening to the evening's


testimony, there was "a rea-
sonable doubt" in her mind
that the abandonment would
serve the public interest.
Comander appeared
shaken by the contentious
nature of the hearing, which,
she noted, had involved citi-
zens with whom she had


PAGE 13-A
been acquainted for many
years.
She emphasized that her
decision had been impartial,
guided by staff recommenda-
tions, and with best interest
of the county as a whole in
mind.

Lowe's and DeFuniak

Springs in early talks


By BRUCE COLLIER
National home improve-
ment store Lowe's has been
in preliminary talks with the
city of DeFuniak Springs for
some six to eight months,
said City Planner Greg
Scoville. However, Scoville
stressed that things are still
far from certain.
"They haven't submitted a


plan for review," said
Scoville, adding that his de-
partment has been dealing so
far with the company's engi-
neers. Submission of a plan
for review would be the first
step in the process.
Scoville could confirm the
area where Lowe's is consid-
ering locating the store. The
company is looking at prop-


erty at the intersection of
U.S. 331 and Business Park
Road in DeFuniak Springs.
Lowe's public relations
representative Karen Cobb
said, "The company is in the
midst of its largest expansion
in history." She added that
Lowe's opened 155 new
stores in 2006, and plans to
add another 150 160 stores

ery issue raised by the De-
partment."
Disputed by Coyote was
whether the August 20, 2006
deadline to file the SAR was
reasonable. The landfill
company's argument was
that DEP had been informed
in discussion with Coyote
representatives that Coyote
would need "off-site legal ac-
cess" to adjoining property in
order to install a monitoring
well required in order to sub-
mit the SAR. That access
was reportedly lacking and
was causing delay in meet-
ing the deadline. -
Coyote had proposed, as a
timeline for submittal of the
SAR, 180 days after the com-
pany "had gained legal per-
L '(


mission to drill the proposed
monitoring well."
The landfill company
called the "unilaterally set"
August 20, 2006 deadline
"arbitrary and unreason-
able," and "NOT (their em-
phasis) consistent with
Coyote's proposal."
Coyote noted that a SAR
was indeed submitted on
March 13, 2007, "well within
six months of obtaining per-
mission to install monitoring
wells on the adjacent prop-
erty."
The administrative hear-
ing had been scheduled for
March 27; 2007, but was can-
celled due to both parties
consenting to the settlement
,a few days before the hear-


ing date.
A letter from Michael S.
Kennedy, program adminis-
trator for DEP's Waste Man-
agement Program, which ac-
companies the consent order
agreement, indicates to Coy-
ote that, "The corrective ac-
tions required to bring your
facility into compliance have
been performed."
The Walton County Board
of County Commissioners
(BCC) has set a special work-
shop to hear a presentation
by DEP regarding the Coy-
ote Landfill. The workshop
will begin at 3:30 p.m. on
Tuesday, April 10.

Mossy Head takes

center stage in

local music fest

By REID TUCKER;0
Two years ago, Matt Braley was in a rock 'n' roll band W
and, like most local artists, they needed a place to play and
be heard. The immediate area in Walton County did not of-
fer such a venue, so Braley made his own. Braley's group p a
combined forces with several other local bands and they put
on a show for anyone who would come. And come they did.
The rest, as they say, is history. IF I.
Braley no longer plays with his original group. Now it's A
Matt Braley and Friends, but the Mossy Headz movement
has grown exponentially in every conceivable way. While the 4?- ""
first annual festival was a one-day, one-night affair, last .
year's and this year's show lasted all weekend. It started at I -
4 p.m. Friday afternoon, March 30, and went until well af-
ter dark on Sunday, April 1.
"We became a real music festival,'.' Braley said, whose in- '
spiration came from the "Spirit of fhe Suwannee Festival."
With more bands signing-on to play at the show, more ven-
dors showing up to sell their wares to the growing yearly
crowds, the festival has come a long way. Braley said, "as '
many people come as possible." r; t
Andy, Braley's father, said that they don't know exactly
how many people attend the show, "but if I had to guess, I'dW REED I4TTLE and his
put it around 600." This year, the elder Braley said, about ,,T REED WATTLE nd i

The bands who show up to play often play for free. .. 'nts.
Braley said, "I'm friends with most bands and players in the
area, so we all just come together for the music. It's some-
thing we all want to do." Bands from all over the southeast W "
came to play at the show, with many from Jacksonville, Tal-
lahassee, Pensacola, Birmingham and other larger metro-
politan areas.
Braley said numerous times that his brainchild is very" r r
much a "grassroots effort" with very little in the way of what
he called "legitimate business." N e v e r the- "

all the way from Ohio to take part. Braley said, "Everyone .
here are really positive-minded people. There are no 'bad
vibes,' nobody runs.around stupid.
"Despite its low-key nature, the Braley's are looking for
sponsors: they expressed interest in making the show even
bigger, with bigger names and a larger crowd capacity." J UST ONE VE ,l tiEW '-A

big money-making venue, this is where local talent comes to
be discovered."
The weekend's festivities took place on Braley's private
property, 3.5 acres of pine woods where Braley has his home.
There is even a shuttle service to take atendees to the camp-
ing area where they spend the weekend. Braley said, "When ,.
things get busy, people won't be able to drive down.".-"a
Braley suggested that attendees always bring tents that
set up quickly to speed things along. -
Evidence of the increasing notoriety ofthe event could be .4-
found in the professional sound management company that "
Braley hired for the weekend. At past events, the bands them-."4
selves brought their own sound crews. Additionally, the event 'v
has relieved publicity in the form of radio ads from local -
rock stations, and DJs could be heard dispensing directions
to Okaloosa County-residents who never thought they would

As promised, the show ran until after dark Sunday.
Andy Braley said of the festival, "It's a clean camp-out with

it was a much-enjoyed weekend escape. -

National Volunteer Week scheduled


April 15-21, 2007 is Na-
tional Volunteer Week and
organizations across the
country are celebrating the
contributions of dedicated
volunteers who are helping
to make life better for others.
Covenant Hospice is hon-
oring hospice volunteers who
bring compassion and sup-
port to the lives of those fac-
ing a life-limiting illness.
"Covenant Hospice volun-
teers play an indispensable
role in enabling Covenant to
offer the best care possible
for patients living with life-
limiting illness, their fami-
lies and caregivers. By shar-
ing their time, energy, and ex-
pertise, our volunteers bring
compassion and caring to the


lives of those in need," com-
mented Dale 0. Knee, Presi-
dent & CEO.
Hospice volunteers are in-
tegral members of the dedi-
cated teams of professionals
who provide hospice and pal-
liative care across our nation.
Hospice volunteers bring
companionship to people in
the final months and weeks
of life, respite to families and
caregivers, and support in
fundraising and administra-
tive efforts by hospice orga-
nizations.
According to the National
Hospice and Palliative Care
Organization, approximately
400,000 people actively vol-
unteer in the nation's 4,100


' hospice organizations annu-
ally, providing more than 16
million hours of service an-
nually.
Locally, more than 1,300
volunteers provided 105,023
hours in 2006 to help Cov-
enant Hospice care for pa-
tients and families in our
community. Many people be-
come hospice volunteers af-
ter experiencing firsthand
the compassionate care Cov-
enant Hospice has provided
to a dying loved one.
If anyone is interested in
becoming a volunteer with
Covenant Hospice, call

while angels kneel with
folded wings!
Easter's blessings are
ever nigh,
as dawn creeps past the
midnight sky!
With the saints in
heaven lift your voice,
all nature with Him does
rejoice!
Hallelujah He lives on
high,
that we shall nevermore
have to die!
That old rugged cross
will be no more
His love for us, He did
outpour!

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, APRIL 5, 2007


By DR. ROBERT M. JAYE
Every circumstances con-
nected with the life of Christ
is interesting to the believer's
mind. All His weary pilgrim-
age from Bethlehem' s man-
ager to Calvary's cross is
paved with glory to our eyes.
After His death and burial,
we hear the angel saying,
"Come and see where the
Lord lay" (Matthew 28:6). Let
us see the place, deeply sol-
emn, which was sanctified,
for there the body of our Sav-
ior had lain before His res-
urrection.
Come, see the empty tomb,
for it is the shrine of great-
ness. People will travel hun-
dreds of miles to see the place
of some great battle and the


tombs of fallen soldiers. Yet
let me tell you of earth's
greatest tomb -an empty one-
the place where Jesus lay for
a little while. At the tomb,
with the eye of faith, behold
the quiet garden, hard by the
walls of Jerusalem.

Come, see the tomb of your
best Friend. Let there be no
words of sorrow or of elo-
quence, for not one of us has
a word which would make
the place more hallowed than
it was made for being the
short resting place of His pre-
cious body, the body of our
dearest Elder Brother. Where
His body rested there is no
corruption, but the smell of
precious perfume.


Come, see the tomb be-
cause it is a quiet spot. Are
you not sick of this tiring an
trying life? Recline with me,
and let us rest in this quiet
garden where our Savior
once lay. It is a sweet resting
spot, a withdrawing room for
the soul. There the noise and
din of business will not dis-
turb you. Rest where He
rested for a while.
Come, see the tomb, but


come with deep sorrow. While
there, He carried your sins
far away, as far as the east is
from the west. Our sins slew
our best Friend. We killed
Him who loved us with an
everlasting love. Do not leave
this place until that One is
your Savior. Come, view the
place, and then say, He is the
Savior of every believer.
"Come, see the place where
the Lord lay."

choice this Sunday!

Little Children
Weep no more for the Cross, I bore.
Weep for the sinner, heartsick and sore:
Weep for those whose cross,
is too heavy to bear.
Longing for someone, to say, I care;
Weep for the aged, forsaken and alone,
Watching and waiting in a nursing home.
Weep for little ones, hungry, abused
and scared, longing for those,
who onced had cared.
Weep for the weary traveler
Who has lost his way,
looking for a smile to brighten his day.
Weep for sheep, who go merrily on their way.
Whose lifestyle leads little lambs, astray.
Weep, no more for the Cross that I bore,
I led the way,
I opened the door.
My Cross is a gift, I left for you.
I blessed it with courage and fortitude.
I weighed it to see it wasn't too large.
Perfumed it with courage
and left to your charge.
I took one last look on you, I loved so much.
Knowing your courage would belie my trust.
My cross is yours now-Carry it without shame.
Shoulder it proudly, in My Holy Name.
Happy Easter

Gators repeat national championship


,By CHUCK HINSON
It is three times in-a-row
,for the Florida Gators. They
'.took the NCAA basketball
championship in 2006, then
the NCAA championship in
football in 2007, then capped
,off their exciting year in
,,sports with another basket-
-ball championship on Mon-
,,day night. For Buckeyes
fans, all three Florida wins
came at Ohio State's ex-
pense.
'< The final score was Florida
84, Ohio State 75.


Not only have the Gators
made themselves a huge ob-
stacle for the Buckeyes, it
was the first time in history
that a NCAA team had won
back-to-back national titles
having the same five start-
ers. Head coach Billy
Donovan wants to be in all
the sports history books, or
at least on a plaque in the
Florida Sports Hall of Fame.
This win also makes him
even more valuable to the
Florida program, and will


more than likely give his $1.7
million salary a sudden push
into the $2 million range.
It looked, much like it did
last year when the Gators
won with the cutting of the
net, the ripping of the jersey
and Florida player Joakim
Noah running into a crowd
of rowdy, cheering fans. The
Gators had proved their
point. Even after they beat
the Buckeyes back in Decem-
ber, Florida had a desire to
prove that they deserve as


much recognition as. their
counter part football team.
The key to the game was
Florida stopping important
plays and players on the
Ohio State team. The Buck-
eyes qlso seen an impressive
rise in playing and staying
power over the last few
months of the season.
Florida's strategy of heavier
one-on-one coverage paid off
and gave them a win for the
record books.
For the Buckeyes, Ivan
Harris was the only player to


make a three-pointer over
the first 40 minutes of the
game. He finished 2-for-8 for
the night. Mike Conley Jr.
finished as the team's lead-
ing scorer with 20 points, but
most of those points came
late in the match-up after
Ohio State had to play catch-
up to the Gators.
For Florida, Greg Oden led
the scoring drive with 25
points, while Al Holford had
18 points and 12 rebounds,
and Taureen Green had 16


points.
Many say that the Florida
football team and basketball
team had better enjoy their
time in the spotlight, because
next year's program will feel
the pinch. Many of the key
basketball players will join
the NBA ranks, as the foot-
ball players from this past
national game did with the
NFL.
Florida wrapped up their
season with a 35-5 record
and a second straight NCAA
basketball title.


Central edges Paxton in baseball 5-4

Chad McDaniel was the
hero of the day for the Cen-
tral Jaguars as his bases-
''loaded single in the bottom

the Jaguars to escape with a

Central used three pitch-

adjust their schedule back a
week to adjust for the two-
week shift in the start of
school in Florida for the fall
of 2007. The adjustment
means that the first football
game, currently known as
the Kickoff Classic, which is
an exhibition game, will take
place on the weekend of Au-
gust 23-25 with most teams
kicking off the regular sea-
son on August 31.

football schedule


By PATRICK CASEY
Walton football Head
Coach Lenny Jankowski has
tentatively announced the
Braves football schedule for
the upcoming season this
fall.


~p


.5


Walton will play 11 games
with six home games on the
docket.
The Braves will play in the
Kickoff Classic in Bonifay
against Holmes County on
August 24 in a pre-season
game.
The regular season will
kickoff on August 31 with
Walton hosting Freeport at 7
p.m.
The Braves will play one
Thursday night contest, the
game with Tallahassee
FAMU, on September 6 in
Tallahassee due to a sched-
uling conflict at Bragg Sta-
dium on Friday, September
7.


"It's a competitive sched-
ule," Jankowksi stated, after
waiting on the state to verify
that the football season
would start a week later than
it did in August this past
year. "We still have just two
district games with
Pensacola Catholic and
Marianna,. but w.e will play-
ing a defending state cham-
pion (FAMU), a Northview
team that was very good last
year, and a Chipley squad
that is one of our fiercest ri-
vals."
Walton will host
Northview in a non-district
tilt on September 14, then
hold Homecoming on Sep-
tember 21 against Vernon.
The traditional battle with
Chipley will be followed by
an open date, then a trip to
Baker to face the Gators on
October 12.
October 19 will mark


Walton's first district contest
as the Braves host district foe
Pensacola Catholic.
West Florida Tech will
come in on October 26 with a
trip to Marianna rounding
out district competition for
the Braves on November 2.
The regular season will
wrap up with a home game
against Franklin County,
which is the combination of
Carrabelle and Apalachicola
into one high school.
The first round of the
Florida High School Athletic
Association's football play-
offs will begin on November
16.
Waltpn will open spring
football practice, as will all
schools in Florida, on May 1.
The Braves are planning a
cookout and intra-squad
game for Saturday, May 12
and will take part in a spring
football jamboree at Freeport
on Friday, May 18, at 6 p.m.

the cars together a few times.
The margin of victory was
only 0.065 seconds.
It was the second consecu-
tive race using the Car of To-


morrow. The only difference
in this past Sunday's race
was there were no pile-ups or
destroyed vehicles left on the
track.
Gordon fought hard for the
last several laps, but team-
mate Johnson knew he
would have to keep the four-
time series champion behind
him for several crucial laps
if he had any notion of pull-
ing off the victory. Though
Gordon did not like the out-
come, he said that. Johnson
did everything he was sup-
posed to do to win the race.
The victory was also an-
other notch in the victory belt

ing Hendrick has won for
the seventh time in nine
races at Martinsville.

Walton High School Tennis: A new era begins


By REID TUCKER
Of the nine singles
matches he has played so far
this season, Walton fresh-
man Curtis Miller has won
seven. Out of the eight
doubles matches, Miller has
won six with team-mate,
11th-grader Woodrow "Dro"
Virgin. The two contribute
to what head coach Beth
Yates calls "the strongest
boys' team in many years."
According to Yates, things
can only get better from here
on out. Her players agree.
Virgin said of this season's
successes, "We picked up
some key new players and we
look to give some tough com-
petition at the district tour-
nament."
"My boys' team has been
very competitive this year,
even in our very strong dis-
trict. My number one and
two seeds, Curtis Miller and
Woody Virgin, have had an
especially good year," Yates
said.
Indeed, Miller ranks near
the top out of the entire dis-
trict. His team-mates are not
far behind. Daniel King,
Yates says, moved up from
fifth to third seed within the
last season and has "im-
proved steadily throughout


the year."
At last Thursday's game
against South Walton,
fourth seed Harper Roehm
"played one of his best career
games," Yates said. Eli
Cawthon, who partners with
Roehm in doubles matches
hasn't had a bad showing
this year either, playing con-
sistently in district tourna-
ments. He gives as good as
he gets, with his record hold-
ing steady at 4-5. More up
and coming talent comes in
the form of sophomore
Campron Cosson. "Cameron
wil undoubtedly be one of my
stronger players next year, at
the rate he's improving,
Yates added.
As for the girls' team,
things were off to a bit of
rocky start, but things have
improved continually, Yates
says. "I have five girls who
are new to the team this year,
so this has been a building
year for the girls' team,"
Yates said. The only senior on
the Walton girls' tennis team
is Ashley Garcia, who cur-
rently sits at third seed, be-
hind Junior Micah Hutley.
Sophmore Mary Beth Bishop
moved up to second seed
from fifth seed last season. "I
have high hopes for the girls'


team as they continue to gain
more experience and playing
time; they have improved
throughout the season,"
Yates said, after their match
against Freeport on March
22.
Both the boys' and girls'
team walked away with the
overall victory.
Yates said a, "The season's
going great so far, though I
would like for us to do better
against some of the tougher
schools, like Washington.
They're the strongest team in
the district."
This Tuesday they got
their chance, though because
of press time deadlines, re-
sults are unavaiable at this
time.
On Friday, the team plays
Pine Forest, another top con-
tender. "These will be our fi-
nal regular season matches,"
Yates said, and neither will
be played at home, as the
construction crews at work
on the new Walton High
School parking lot will pres-
ently tear up the tennis
courts as they march toward
completion of their project.
District tournaments will be
held at the University of
West Florida on April 16 and
17.


All in all, Walton has a
young team and that is a
good thing, according to
Yates. With players like
Miller and Virgin nearly at
the top of the competitive
level and a more experienced
girls' team, Walton should
should remain competitive in
proceeding years.
"They've all shown tremen-
dous improvement, and I ex-
pect this trend to continue,"
Yates said.

Selling out to the



highest bidder


By LEAH STRATMANN
With the traditional real
estate market being on the
sluggish side, more and more
sellers are looking for alter-
native methods to sell prop-
erties. One of these is the in-
creasing popularity of auc-
tioning property, which has
the convenience of being
rapid.
Jeffery Jourdan, market-
ing director for Roebuck Auc-
tions, noted that selling real
estate by auction is "not a
new concept for us. We have
been in business since 1973,
,but the state of the real es-
tate market has made a dif-
ference in our volume this
year," he said.
"It is important to stress
that auctions are not for the
desperate. There has tradi-
tionally been that stereotype,
but it just isn't true. It is sim-
ply another way to spotlight
your property. Our goal is to
find people who are going to
compete for that property.
Only things of value are sold
at auction, because that is
where you get the true mar-
ket value," Jourdan noted.
Real estate or anything
else someone may wish to
auction can be sold in two
ways. "If you have an abso-
lute auction, the property


"It is important to stress that auctions
are not for the desperate. There has tra-
ditionally been that stereotype, but it just
isn't true."--Jeffery Jourdan of Roebuck Auctions-


sells regardless of price. The
owner does not set a mini-
mtm. These types of auc-
tions attract the most inter-
est from potential bidders,"
Jourdan said. Another
method of setting up an auc-
tion is with reserve, when the
owner has a minimum they
would like to get for the prop-
erty.
"We won't turn anybody
away from an auction. To get
a bidder's number you need
to be prepared to pay a 10
percent down payment the
day of the auction. Ten per-
cent of whatever your high
bid is in certified funds or a
personal check with a letter
from the bank," Jourdan
said.
Jourdan pointed out that
auctioning is really a mar-
keting tool. "One thing we do
is actively seek buyers for the
properties we are selling.
Whether the market is good
or bad, auctions work. When
the market is stagnant like


now, auction is a way to set
your property apart from the
others."
The auction house makes
a profit by setting a buyer's
premium to the high bid. Al-
though Jourdan would not
discuss the premium, he
said, "Premiums often work
out better for the seller than
straight commission does for
a Realtor."
Another facet of auction
versus traditional real estate
marketing is the contracts
are non-contingent.
"Non-contingency makes
some buyers nervous, but I
don't want to sell something
that will make my company
look bad. We actually turn
down more properties than
we take to auction, because
we want to make sure they
are good properties. If some-
body owes more than the
property is worth, it isn't a
good property. It isn't magic,
auction is just another way
to sell property."

When HDR Engineering
turned in its recommended
master plan for a road to al-
leviate congestion on U.S. 98
and provide hurricane evacu-
ation routes from Escambia
County east to Wakulla
County, they essentially cre-
ated a whole new plan after
getting input from a series of
public meetings, according to'
Jim Anders, Walton County's
representative to the body.
At a meeting March 1, the
Northwest Florida Transpor-
tation Corridor Authority
(NWFTCA) offered up four
alternatives to be considered
ranging from no-build plans
to plans costing as much as
$11 billion. The two most ex-
pensive plans, at $11 billion
each, would run the highway
from Escambia County east
to Wakulla County bypassing
U.S. 98.
The recommendation in-
cludes a bypass running
across Eglin Air Force Base
and a six-lane Brooks Bridge.
"The plan now is a combi-
nation of those original four
choices and includes making
four lanes of U.S. 331.
Nokuse Plantation has prop-
erty in the area, but the real
road could vary by several
miles because of environ-
mental issues," Anders said.


"I don't know that
anything of this size
will make all people
happy." -Jim Anders,
Walton Country NW Florida
Transportation Corridor Au-
thority representative

The meeting on April 5
could result in the formal
adoption of the master plan.
Anders said whatever
plan is ultimately adopted; it
will take 10 to 15 years to
complete and cost from $10


to $25 billion.
"The cost will depend on
several factors, including
which routes are completed
at which times and whether
or not there are toll roads.:
Tolls collected can be used to:
further the project, which
helps to defray the overall
cost of the project," he said.
In a letter to Steve Wilson
of HDR Engineering, conser:
vationist M.C. Davis had
quite a bit to say about the'
proposed plan, specifically
what would be the new U.Ss
331 to S.R. 77, known as tle
Freeport-West Bay Connec-
tor.
"I am extremely opposed
to this option and request
that it be removed from the
Master Plan from any fur-
ther consideration for the fol-
lowing reasons:
"1. All of .the land area
south of SR 20 and east of Co.
Hwy 3280 where the pro-
posed highway would cross is
designated as conservation
land and the Florida Depart-
men t 9f Environmental Pro-
tection holds a conservation
easement on this land that
was purchased with .Florida
Forever funds. Under the
legal agreement for this con-
servation easement, there
can be no development, road-
ways, or any projects that
damage or alter the natural
ecosystems. In other words,
the State could not legally
allow this highway to be built
there because of the terms of
the conservation easement.:
"2. On the area shown on
the map where the proposed
highway crosses my land
east of Co. Highway 3280, we
have been restocking thd
land with gopher tortoises
from development sites
throughout Florida under an
agreement with the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission (FFWCC)

Suspect arrested in three


south Walton burglaries


On March 26, deputies of
Walton County Sheriff's Of-
fice (WCSO) arrested Paul W.
Crout, 45, of Santa Rosa
Beach, and charged him with
three counts of grand theft,
three counts of burglary, and
one count of issuing a worth-
less check.
The three burglaries re-
portedly occurred at the
Santa Rosa Pharmacy on or
around February 11, March


8, and March 22. One of the
deputies responding to the
most recent alarm call at the
pharmacy remembered a bi-
cyclist who happened to be
near the scene upon their ar-
rival. The individual was
later identified as Crout. It
was discovered that Crout
had an active warrant
against him for'the worthless
check charge.
Deputies went to Crout's


home to 'take him into cus-
tody on the warrant. He was
taken into custody and later
confessed to committing
three burglaries at Santa
Rosa Pharmacy. He stated
that all he took from the
pharmacy was narcotics. He
then informed the deputies of
the location of the narcotics.
Crout is in custody in the
Walton County Jail.

have been relocated to our
land last year and over 500
additional tortoises planned
for relocation this year.
These relocations are distrib-
uted throughout all of the up-
lands in the area east of
Highway 3280 at a density of
2 tortoises per acre. These
relocations were allowed by
FFWCC because of the per-
petual conservation ease-
ment protections on this land
and I strongly doubt that
they would allow a highway
to be built here.
"3. As part of our overall
conservation plan for Nokuse
Plantation, we have spent
millions of dollars over the
last 5 years on restoration
and management of the up-
land and wetland habitats in
the areas you propose to
build the highway. These ac-
tivities include prescribed
burning, native groundcover
restoration, and planting
{more than) 500,000 longleaf
pine seedlings.
"4. On the area shown on
the map where the proposed
highway crosses my land
east of Co. Highway 3280, we
have just finished building a
multi-million dollar home for
the Director of Nokuse Plan-
tation and a lab/office/equip-
ment facility. This complex is
our base of operations at
Nokuse Plantation.
"I can only assume that
the proposed route of Option
40 is a result of a person
drawing a line on map with-
out any knowledge of the in-
surmountable legal and en-
vironmental constraints that
would arise from attempting
to permit a new highway in
the area you have proposed.
For the specific points I have
outlined, there is no logical
reason to pursue Option 40
any further and it should be
immediately removed from
the Plan. You are welcome to
check the accuracy of my
comments with the FDEP,
FFWCC, the Northwest
Florida Water Management
District, and the Walton
Coutity 'B'ard bf County


Commissioners." Davis con-
cluded.


"I don't see how
(this plan} could ever
gain momentum, or
how it could be
funded." -Matt Aresco,
director of Nokuse Planta-
tion

Matt Aresco, director of
Nokuse Plantation said Op-
tion 40 is the wrong way to
go. He said, "S.R. 20 is the


better route. I think they
want to by-pass it and it
would require a new bridge
across Choctawhatchee Bay.
This route would go to the
new airport in Bay County. I
don't see how it could ever
gain momentum or how it
' could be funded."
Anders said, "The public is
invited to attend the meeting
on April 5, at 10 a.m. in City
Hall in Panama City. There
will be time for public com-
ments to. be heard after the
meeting."

INTERNATIONALLY ACCLAIMED CONCERT PIA-
NIST Anna Polusmiak will perform two concerts with
Sinfonia Gulf Coast in April. Photo from Sinfonia.



Sinfonia presents

"Russian Masters" in

two concert evenings


Sinfonia Gulf Coast's
founding music director and
Conductor, Demetrius Fuller,
announced details of their
next concert, "Russian Mas-
ters," scheduled for April 6 at
the Emerald Coast Confer-
ence Center and April 7 at

ing Russian- orchestral mu-
sic. VIkranian-born interna-

Anna Polumriak will ier-
form one of the most difficult
concertos in the entire reper-
toire. Sergei Rachmaninoff's
"Concerto no. 3" for piano
and orchestra featured in
the movie "Shine" is a tour
de force for both piano and
orchestra. "The sheer magni-
tude of physical strength re-
quired from the soloist is
amazing and only pianists of
Anna's caliber can perform
this work," said Fuller.
Polusmiak is a rising star
in the younger generation of
pianists, having won first
prize at numerous interna-
tional piano competitions, in-
cluding the Corpus Christi
and Queen Anne Competi-
tion in Belgium. Polusmiak
has performed this, season
with the symphonies of Cin-
cinnati, Kharkiv, and the
Netherlands. She joins.
Sinfonia after recording her
first CD with the St. Peters-
burg Philharmonic in Russia.
The evening also includes
Piotr Tchaikovsky's "Sym-
phony No. 5 in E minor", one
of the most beloved and pow-
erful symphonies of all time.
"Russian Masters" will offer
passionate and powerful mu-
sic performed by the talented
Sinfonia musicians. Audi-
ence members will also get a
sample of Sinfonia's offerings
for.the 2007-2008 season.

On Monday March 2, The
Walton County Sheriff's Of-
fice (WCSO) arrested Daryl
W. Mayatte, 30, of Gulfport,
MS, and charged him with
one count of high speed flee-
ing and eluding, one count
of careless driving, one count
of a crime against a person,
and two counts of resisting
arrest with violence.
At approximately 10:30
p.m., a'vehicle, later identi-
fied as driven by Mayatte,
was observed traveling west-
bound on U.S. 98 at speeds
in excess of 100 mph. A
deputy was able to initiate a
traffic stop on the vehicle in
Santa Rosa Beach. After
identifying the driver, the
deputy was notified that
Mayatte had an active war-
rant for his arrest.
The deputy reapproached the
vehicle and asked Mayatte to
exit. Mayatte drove off at a
high rate of speed, traveling
westbound on U.S. 98, with
the deputy in pursuit. The
deputy radioed for further
assistance.
All south Walton sheriff's
deputies were put on alert
and began shutting down
roads near the pursuit.
Spike strips were deployed at
the intersection of U.S. 98 ad
CR- 30A. Mayatte avoided
the strips, turned onto CR-
30A and continued east-
bound in excess of 105 mph.
More spike strips were de-
ployed at other intersections,
but Mayatte avoided them as
well, and drove at high
speed through several stop
signs. Near the intersection
in front of a restaurant,
Mayatte nearly hit a deputy
who was attempting to clear
motorists from the roadway.
The pursuit was shut down
for public safety and a
countywide Be-On-the Look-
Out (BOLO) alert was
reinitiated.
The vehicle was later spot-
ted traveling eastbound near
the intersection of U.S. 98
and CR-283. The vehicle
turned onto Old Ferry Road
and parked behind a utility
shed. Mayatte abandoned
the vehicle and fled on foot.
The perimeter was initiated
and assistance from the
Florida Department of Cor-
rections K-9 Unit was re-
quested.
Mayatte was located within
minutes. Once taken into
custody, Mr. Mayatte contin-
ued to fight with the depu-
ties and reportedly made
several death threats:
Mayatte was booked into the
Walton County Jail without
further incident.

Q. I got a ticket
yesterday, and today I
wanted to sign up for traffic
school online, but was not
able to. A friend told me you
could handle traffic tickets
online these days.
A. You are obviously a
prompt and conscientious
citizen, perhaps too prompt!
You can, indeed, take care
of paying your traffic ticket
online in many counties, as
well as electing to attend
traffic school if eligible.
It may take several days
before your citation is
available online. This
process is not instan-
taneous. The data must be
sent from the law en-
forcement agency to the
Clerk's office, and then
entered into the system
before it can be made
available online.
If you wish to attend a
basic driver improvement
school, a list of providers is
available on the Depart-
ment of Highway Safety


and Motor Vehicles'website
at http://www.hsmv.state.
fl.us/ddl/bdis.html. There
are classroom-based and
Internet courses available.
Please note that you can
only make the election once
in a 12-month period, and
only five times in a lifetime.
Florida Statutes provide
that a driver with a
commercial driver license
(CDL) is not eligible to
attend traffic school to
avoid points. You must
either pay the ticket with
points assessed or request
a court hearing. If you
attempt a school election
with a CDL license, points
will be assessed to that
license regardless of the
school election.
Some violations involv-
ing excess speeds are not
available to elect the school
option online. To elect
school for these violations,
please contact our office at
(850) 892-8115 or (850) 267-

assistance.
I hope this helps, and
that you will take advan-
tage of the new technology
we are so fortunate to have

Women's safety issues


discussed at club event


By JEFFREY POWELL
Crime Stoppers of Walton
County Coordinator Anna
LaCour and crime prevention
specialist for the Okaloosa
County Sheriff's office
Kathleen Larney recently
addressed the Santa Rosa
Golf and Beach Women's
Club concerning a litany of
'safety issues. Those issues
ranged from personal safety
and crime prevention to
protecting ones identityy'
"We are pleased to present
to the communities the
information to protect
themselves and provide
services that make Walton
County a safe place to live,"
said LaCour.
LaCour briefed the well
attended meeting about the
Crime Stoppers program and
how citizens can help protect
themselves as well as their
neighbors.
"Keep your neighbors
aware of situations such as a.
break in or a.tampered- mail..


box," LaCour stressed. Also a
neighborhood watch program
is a good idea. "The
population is growing and we
are trying to prevent the
crime rate from growing with
it," LaCour said. She also
insisted that all calls made to
Crime Stoppers are and will
remain anonymous.
Larney covered the ever
growing problem of identity
theft. "Check your credit at
least orice a year," Larney
said. "Do a few things for
yourself and you drastically
reduce your chances of being
taken advantage of." Larney
also suggested shredding
documents and keeping a
close eye on any mailed bills.
"It's up to you to protect
yourself," Larney said.
At the conclusion of the
program, the women's club
made a donation of $100.
LaCour said the money
would be used by the. Crime

Water Conservation:

Washing Machines


A washing machine is the second largest water user in
your home, w ith toilets being first. A traditional wash-
ing machine uses approximately 41 gallons per load.
The best way to lower this usage is to buy a high
efficiency washing machine. These machines use 35-
50% less water and 50% less energy per load. This will
save you money on both your water and energy bills.

No matter what kind of washing machine you have,
here are some basic tips. that can reduce water use
for washing clothes:

* Operate the washer with full loads only even if the
machine has an adjustable load setting. A full load
is the most efficient way to w ash clothes.

If )our w asher has a variablee water volume
setting, select the minimum amount required
per load.

Pre-treat stains to avoid rewashing.

Use the shortest wash cycle for lightly soiled loads.

Check your washing machine hoses regularly
for cracks that could result in leaks.

coordinated the event since its

keep it real simple. Guests
sign up on a sheet of notebook
paper that I pass around. We

You know that
spring has arrived
by the birds chirp-
ing, the flowers
-blooming and every
sense, including
sound, is alive. April
ushers in a flurry of
musical acts and fes-
tivals along the Em-
erald Coast and
throughout the
southeast.

There is no better way than
to relax the day away by sit-
ting outdoors in the warm
spring sun, sipping a cool
drink and .listening to
Grammy award-winning per-
formers without even having
to get in your car. For many,
that will be the case starting
next week and stretching


into the first part of May.
Locals, and a few thousand
tourists from all over the
world will converge on the
grounds of Gulf Place next
weekend for three days of
top-notch Grammy award-
winning musicians at the
2007 WSBZ Seabreeze Jazz
Festival. The event will take
over the Emerald Coast as
nearly 10,000 fans are ex-
pected to pass through the
gates to hear such artists as
Mindi Abair, Brian Simpson,
Jeff Kashiwa, Rafe Gomez,
Jones & Co., Down To The
Bone, Tim Bowman, Kirk
Whalum, Boney James, Nick
Colionne, the Urban Jazz
Coalition, Jonathan Butler,
Richard Elliott, Peter White,
Eric Darius and Rick Braun.
More than 50 food,
commercial, arts and crafts
and smooth jazz record labels
will be on hand throughout
the weekend as well.

certs being sold out, a few
tickets still remain for the
weekend shows. For more
information, call Hilltop Pro-
ductions at 951-2148, or for

chestra will hit the main

performance. They orchestra

considered Johannes
Brahms greatest works, will
be performed.

symphony and its director
Lois Von Dam will be joined
by guest soloists soprano
Jane Redding and baritone
Timothy Kennedy for the a


one-show performance.

and can be reserved by call-
ing the OWC box office at

Well we have traveled from
smooth jazz and easy listen-
ing, to symphonic music with
trained soloists, to good ole'
southern rock 'n' roll, rythm
and blues and jazz at the
New Orleans Jazz Festival.
Despite a few hours' drive,
this year's line-up has been
considered the best in the
event's history.
Topping off the two week-
end event taking take place
April 27-29 and May 4-6,.will
be a performance by the
"Killer" himself, Jerry Lee
Lewis. Coming out of retire-
ment and hitting the touring
circuit once again, he will be

"This is exactly the type

WALTON CARES volunteers take a break from unloading purchased food bought through
the Angel Food Ministries program. This program provides necessary food assistance to nearly
500 Walton County families. Walton Cares, Inc. is currently attempting to purchase property
for a distribution center.
"If this purchase falls through, over 3,500 citizens of the Panhandle will suffer a loss of
services," said Food and Infant Ministries Director Bettie L. Brown. "That would truly be a
disaster"' Walton Cares has been serving the county for one year. (Photo by Jeffrey Powell)
