School board awaits May 15


referendum election


By PATRICK CASEY
The Walton County School
Board met on Tuesday, April
3. Agenda items included a
date for the on'e-half mill ref-
erendum election, as well as
an ongoing discussion about
a metal gymnasium at But-
ler Elementary School.
Superintendent Carlene
Anderson told board mem-
bers that the Walton County
commissioners had approved
May 15 as the voting date for
the one-half mill referendum.
This would provide $8 mil-
lion in funds for the school
district. Chairman Mark
Davis had commented at a
previous meeting that a vot-
ing date before school ended
could help poll turnout and
avoid a conflict with possible
summer vacations for voters.
The board discussed add-
ing a brick facade around the
proposed metal gymnasium
at Butler Elementary School
to help the building fit in
with Point Washington's ar-
chitectural style. Though no


action was taken at the meet-
ing, the superintendent ex-
pressed her intention to
make a recommendation at
the April 17 meeting.
Wyatt Shiver Construc-
tion Company was chosen to
construct metal buildings
that are needed at various
schools throughout the dis-
trict.
The board chose to estab-
lish a committee to provide
on-site visits to schools and
district offices and to recom-
mend areas where disabili-
ties compliance should be ad-
dressed. At the previous
meeting, Cindy Jeselnik had
challenged board members to
review handicap accessibil-
ity and accommodations as
part of Multiple Sclerosis
Awareness Month in March.
Board members approved
a summer voluntary pre-kin-
dergarten program for all eli-
gible students, as mandated
by Florida law. The program
must consist of a minimum
of 300 hours of instruction for


children. Classes would
serve between four and 10
children, and be taught by
certified teachers.
The board also chose to re-
place a contract position for
a speech and language thera-
pist with one directly em-
ployed by 'the school district.
The position is expected to
hold a yearly price tag of
$36,000.
Trip requests were ap-
proved for Walton High's
Drama Club to travel to the
Alabama Shakespeare Festi-
val in Montgomery on May
2. South Walton High
School's band will travel to
Wild Adventures Theme
Park in Valdosta on May 5.
The Walton High School
band is also planning on
making a trip to Wild Adven-
tures on April 28-29.
The next regularly sched-
uled meeting of the Walton
County School Board will be
on Tuesday, April 17, at 5
p.m., at the Tivoli Adminis-
trative Complex.

The DeFuniak Springs
City Council approved pro-
ceeding with a land use and
zoning change for the recent
annexed Gulf Communica-
tions property on U.S. 331 S.
A public hearing on this mat-*
ter will be held on May 14.
Also in the Quail Ridge
subdivision, annexation into
the city of lots 37 and 38 was
given final approval. The or-
dinance establishing this an-
nbxation was given a second
reading with no objections
from the public.
The DeFuniak Springs
Fire Department will soon
have a new roof. Quality
Builders of DeFuniak
Springs was the low bidder
for the project with a bid of
$18,500 for replacing the
department's roof.
An interlocal agreement
between the City of DeFu-
niak Springs and Walton
County for fire service was
approved by the council. Ac-
cording to City Manager Kim
Presnell, it is the same as the
prior agreement.
DeFuniak Springs Fire
Chief Brian Coley was
present to support this agree-
ment. He said, "I think it's an
excellent agreement."
Engineering firm
Goodwyn, Mills, and Cawood
have been hired by the city
for engineering services for
the city's gas systems.
The city renewed its lease
agreement with the Walton
County Council on Aging. for
use of the building at 41
Main' Street in DeFuniak
Springs.
The city of DeFuniak
Springs has proclaimed April
to be Water Conservation
Month and calls on all citi-
zens to "protect pur precious
resource by practicing water
saving measures and becom-
ing more aware of the need
to save water."
Newly elected council
members will be sworn in at
the April 23 meeting of the
city council.
A fourth housing develop-
,ment in the city has entered
the running for state afford-


able housing funds. The pro-
posed development would be
built on 10 acres on Shoe-
maker Drive, about half a
mile north of U.S. 90 W.
Sam Johnston of Cahaba
Valley Development Co.
spoke to the. city council
about the development. He
said, "We will not need any-
thing from the city. Certainly
you will not have more than
one development in DeFu-
niak Springs, one at most."
This same property was
recently the subject of neigh-
borhood controversy when
neighbors protested an ear-
lier concept for development.
The difference between
this new development and
the first was described by
City Planning Director Greg
Scoville. "This is considered
an affordable housing project
and the other wasn't."
Larry Laird added, "The
other project was
townhomes. This is apart-
ments."
In the absence of Council-
man Mark Anderson, the
council voted 3-1 to approved
city support for the project.
Councilman Don Harrison
was the only nay vote.
Harrison said, "I prefer the
other pwo sites over this one."
The city council approved
a new Housing Assistance
Plan, presented by Bob Jones
for the city's Community De-
velopment Block Grant
(CDBG)program. The docu-
ment replaced a previous one
with only minor changes.
"We are required to sub-
mit this as part of our appli-
cation," Bob Jones said. "The
processes are basically the
same."
The council also approved
a resolution to make the ap-
plication for the grant for bet-
tering housing in the commut-
nity. If awarded, the grant
would be for $700,000. The
application is due in by the
20th of this month.
Jones said, he would ex-
pect it to be the spring of next
year before any construction
could begin with this pro-
gram.

without a vote. Incumbent Harold Carpenter was the only
qualifying candidate for the mayor's job. Henry D. Ennis Sr.
won seat 4, when incumbent councilman Mark Anderson
chose not to seek re-election.
The race for city marshal was between current officeholder
Michael A. Adkinson'Jr. and challenger Johnny Grantham.
Adkinson was hired by the city council when former mar-
shal Ray Burgess resigned in 2005. Grantham is currently
a deputy with Walton County Sheriff's Office
City council seat 5 was a three-way race, between incum-
bent Roy McLeod, Wayne Graham, and John W. Hinson.
The first referendum was a proposal to extend the terms
of'oflice for mayor and city council from the current terms of
two years to four years for each. with elections held every
two years.
The second referendum was a proposal to change the
position of city clerk from an elected position to an appointed
position, filled by a majority vote of the city council.

Freeport company announces "revolution



in marine construction technology"


By PAULA HAMILTON and
LISA KNAPP
It began as a "dream" to
save people the extravagant
costs of rebuilding their ma-
rine structures every time a
tropical storm or hurricane
blew through and ended up
being a revolution in marine
construction technology that
can secure marine structures
against the forces of nature.
Stan Bates, inventor and


founder of the Pilock Corpo-
ration, is a certified Florida
marine construction contrac-
tor. For over 40 years, Stan
had seen the continual de-
struction of docks, seawalls,
boathouses and other marine
structures after severe
storms every year. He
wanted to do something that
would help keep the level of
destruction at a minimum.
The result is the Piling An-


chor Locking System.
The anchoring device was
patented in September 1995
(Patent #5553978). It is the
only such device for marine
structures to pass through
the United States Patent
Board. This pile locking de-
vice is an inexpensive, but
highly durable and depend-
able anchoring system made
of steel that will stabilize
marine structures. The goal


is providing an economical
product that could save mil-
lions of dollars in replace-
ment costs of marine, struc-
tures for the general public,
government,. state and
county agencies.
Independent testing has
proven a piling anchored

tem has a load bearing abil-
ity of 10,000 pounds and
more.

During recent indepen-
dent testing in New Jersey
for "ice-jacking," the piling
anchor system was proven to
be effective in resisting the
uplift of the pilings due to ice.
The anchoring system serves
a dual purpose for the north-
ern coastal regions. The pil-
ing anchor protects the
northern marine structures
from the uplift surge of wave
action, during hurricanes
and tropical storms during
hurricane season, by holding
the pilings in place.
This piling anchor system
is the only one known to hold
pilings in place during ice
jacking.
Eglin Air Force Base man-
dated that the pile anchor
locking system be used in re-
building fhe base's marina


after destruction from Hur-
ricane Opal.
The Pile Anchoring Sys-
tem is manufactured and
marketed by Pilock TM Cor-
poration in Freeport, Florida.
The U.S. Coast Guard has
completed. projects using the
piling anchor at the
Pensacola Naval Air Station
and the U.S. Marine Corps
used the piling anchor when
rebuilding at the Marine
Corps base at Camp Le
Jeune, NC., after it was de-
stroyed by Hurricane
Bonnie.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, APRIL 12, 2007


--ft Syndicated Content -


Available from Commercial News Providers"'

4w 40A 'I' 4*w


Even if your curiosity is
not the morbid kind, you
can't help but have read or
seen something about the
latest outbreak of celebrity
foot-in-mouth disease.
MSNBC radio host Don
Imus is doing public penance
for remarks made about
members of the Rutgers Uni-
versity women's basketball
team. I will not repeat them
here. Not to worry, though.
Every story that's been writ-
ten deploring the remarks is
making it a point to include
them, verbatim. Much as I
hate to refer our readers to
other news sources, you're on
your own for the text.
By any measure, it's fair
to describe what Imus and
producer Bernard McGuirk
said as both racist and sex-
ist. The remarks were also
completely irrelevant to the
original sports story, which
was about Rutgers' loss of
a championship game.
The contrite Imus has
been suspended for two
weeks, and was quoted as
saying that he is going to try
to serve his time in the cor-
ner with "some dignity."
Give a shout when you
find some, will you, Don?
Imus has drawn the ire of
the usual suspects, including
Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson,
and a lot of other people who
make a good living out of be-
ing shocked and appalled.
Mind you, they ought to
be shocked and appalled. We
all ought to be shocked and
appalled. Still, I can't help
wondering, what has Imus
said that isn't being said,
every day, on most forms of
media, by all kinds of people,
of all races?
The words Imus and
McGuirk used are common-
place on any number of TV
shows both "reality" and fic-
tional as well as song lyr-
ics, stand-up comedy rou-
tines, magazine articles, and
movies. People call each
other names in public that
would have gotten them
beaten senseless 50 years
ago. The mere existence -
and success- of a bacterial
strain of radio personalities
like Imus or Howard Stern
is evidence of the fact that
this kind of talk has become
the norm. In his apology,


Imus himself said he made
the remarks "in a comedy
context."
It's simply human nature
to push everything too far. Or
as your mother said, "it's all
good fun, until someone gets
hurt."
Well, the young women of
Rutgers got hurt. Unlike
Sharpton, Jackson, Imus,
and sundry other apparent
"experts" on the subject of
public insults, they are tak-
ing a high road. Responding
to Imus' characterization of
her and her teammates, one
player simply said, "that's not
what I am."
The team plans to meet
with Imus. One player said
she is going to ask Imus why
he felt he had to make such
a thoughtless remark.
Imus probably won't tell
her this, but I'd guess the rea-
son he felt he could make
such a remark was that he
gets paid substantial sums of
money to make such remarks
all the time.'Imus' mistake
was that he milked the
wrong sacred cow. Are we re-
ally that surprised he didn't
know the difference?
We could be glad about
some of this. We could be
glad that racist remarks are
still condemned for what
they are, despite the "comic"
intent of the speaker. Glad
that the women of Rutgers
are standing on their accom-
plishments and dignity, and
not lashing out in anger at
an over-the-hill radio provo-
cateur. Glad that media per-
sonalities like Al Roker (for
example) are saying they're
fed up with "the cruelty that
passes for 'funny.'"

But are we glad enough to
stop watching and listening
to the programs that have
gradually inured the public
to shock-as-normal enter-
tainment?
We don't need a constitu-
tional amendment or oppres-
sive censorship laws. We
don't need any governmen-
tal or activist-based curtail-
ments of free expression, for
that matter.
All we need is our good
taste, our good manners, and
our opposable thumbs, to
manipulate the "off" button.
That, and a library card....

LETE O6HEEITOR


Editor:
So Walton County has been
"agressed" out of a quarter
mile of McCullough Road.
Was it a public road? Most
definitely, yes. Some of the
oldest residents in the area
stated the road had been
there as long as they could
remember. Mr. Brown, De-
partment of Public Works, is
quoted as saying he couldn't
find "deeded access" to the
county. Many if not most of
the rural roads in this county
have been in place for well
over a hundred years, and
"deeded access" may not ex-
ist on several. Mr. Warren
stated, an analysis showed
only four trips a day on the
road. No, surprise there be-
cause county maintenance
has been nil. Bushes have
grown close enough to do a job
on a vehicle. But the real
kicker is that fences on both
sides encroached on the road-
way to such an extent a large
vehicle would find difficulty
in using it. That road was
there before Steve and his
wife were born. They must
know it was once a county
road.
Before your county commis-
sioners gave it away, the road
crossed 1084 in a straight line
to Brown Road. That was be-
fore most county roads had
posted names, so over across
1084 it became Price Road,
though it was part of the
same.
What ticked most people off


is that a fence closed access
to 1084 and over time a gate
was installed. By then the
road had been neglected so
long it could hardly be used,
it was still recognized and
accepted through at least
two generations as a county
road. But a citizen, through
bold moves of making the
road as unusable as possible
in openly aggressive ways,
basically took over and the
commission let him get away
with it.
Cortez Thompson, whom I
know and have known since
his youth, should have sued
the BCC for neglecting the
road as well as Herring for
closing it. Lloyd Thompson,
an older brother of Cortez,
was one of the people who
urged the planning commis-
sion to recommend against
closing,.)the ,road some
months ago and said the'
W.P.A. worked on the road,
giving further credence of it
being a county road.
Project Manager, Mark T.
Martin, included an exalted
"finding of fact" in report
that "the road does not ap-
pear to serve any current or
future public purpose". Well
Mr. Martin's "finding of fact"
is flawed. What he has dis-
played is an opinion. How-
ever, he is right that a woe-
fully neglected and fenced up
road serves no public pur-
pose.
Many members of the com-


Editor,
This is in response to the article in the paper a couple of
weeks ago regarding the changing of the Paxton High School
mascot. While I appreciate the efforts of Mr. Anderson and
Ms. Gilbert to purchase new uniforms for the teams, this
effort does not need to.include the changing of a mascot that
is known and respected throughout this community,
While some, including Mr. Anderson and Ms. Gilbert, see
no harm in "minor changes" to the current mascot, many of
us would prefer keeping the current Paxton mascot as is
while preserving its legacy for future generations of this
school. The entire bobcat face, which serves as our current
mascot, has been a symbol of Paxton High for decades. It
has been proudly adorned on the attire of generations of
families that have attended and supported Paxton High
School. Replacing our current mascot with only a profile of
a bobcat seems harmless to Mr. Anderson and Ms. Gilbert,
but for alumni, such as myself, it means a great deal more.
It is more than just a face or mascot, the entire bobcat face
means tradition a Paxton High School tradition. A tradi-
tion built on producing championship athletic teams and
outstanding leaders of this community who still proudly
wear their full face bobcat attire when they attend various
functions that support this school. Ms. Gilbert you do not
have to be against change to preserve the past. In fact, I am
completely in favor of change -- change the Principal and
the Athletic Director of Paxton High School.

munity are privately in-
censed that a citizen would
mount a concentrated effort
to seize a public road for his
own use. They believe it was
wrong and a disservice to the
community, and some of
them seem to believe they
wdre betrayed.
The BCC did not do their
homework. They charged in
cavalry fashion and moved to
abandon the road without
getting a sense of how the
community felt, both pro and
con, and some believe a deci-
sion had already been made
by the BCC, and the meeting
was merely a formality. A
glance at a county map
would have told them that
McCullough Road was a
straight line to Brown Road
and the quarter mile in ques-
tion was part of it and there-
fore a part of the county road.
A look at the newspaper
report seems to confirm the
notion that a decision had al-
ready been made or was close
to one, before the meeting. All
the spokesmen for the aban-
donment, all of them county
employees, incidentally
spoke in favor. Brown, War-
ren, Martin, etc. Citizens who
spoke in favor, all citizens of
the community, of the road
remaining in the county's
possession and open were,
largely ignored or given little
weight.
So, what happened? Jones
moved for abandonment,


Scott Brannon seconded, and
all members of the BCC ex-
cept Cindy Meadows voted
yes. Meadows is quoted as
saying there was reasonable
doubt in her mind that aban-
donment would serve the
public interest.
Who is at fault for this
whole fiasco? The root of the
problem lays with the county
commissioners. This situa-
tion did not arise just yester-
day. It has been going on for
years, and if the BCC didn't
know about it they were
asleep at the wheel.
Mike Burke, county attor-
ney is quoted as recommend-
ing abandonment because
there is "at least a question"
as to whether the county has
some claim to the road. Yet
Brown stated that use and
maintenance of the road in
years past may have. estab-
lished "prescriptive (ease-
ment" for public use, which is
very probable since adverse
possession, also known as
squatters rights, is alive and
well in Florida.
So what can citizens do
about it? They can go to court
and ask for an injunction but
most feel a citizen should not
have to spend hard earned
money that way. The only
other option is not to reelect
them and maybe this is the
best course.
Sincerely,
Charles F. Adams

Editor,
The Senior Easter Basket program is officially over. I want
to thank some very special people for the donations they
made to feed some of our elders throughout Walton.County.
Friendship Baptist Church was the first organization to do-
nate and the only church in the entire Walton County area
that gave anything to the cause. The other organizations
that RSVP (Retired Senior Volunteer Program) would like
to thank are the Chamber of Commerce, South Walton High
School, and the few private donors that gave. A huge thank
you goes to Ralph Johnson and the entire staff and officers
of the Walton County Sheriff's department. All the dona-
tions they brought were enough to feed 30 elders in our com-
munity. This by far is the biggest food distribution we have
had so far. If anyone would like to donate food, or even a
dollar at anytime they can give to Walton Cares, located at
2551 US Hwy. 90 East, DeFuniak Springs. On behalf of the
RSVP program a very warm and heart felt thank you goes
out to all that helped with this much needed project.

Jean Harvey
Walton County RSVP Coordinator



Editor:
I read last week's story on the closing of part of McCullough
Road. Then I read Mr. Gene Ryan's letter and I wondered if
they were both about the same meeting.
I think it's a shame that neighbors can't get along any bet-
ter than this; It had to come to the county for a decision, but
at least it was finally settled.
I remember seeing Lloyd Thompson at the commissioner
meetings back in the early 90's, asking for relief from the
terrible erosion that had turned his front yard into a sand
lot and his pond into a mud hole.
Let's see, I think that was back when Mr. Ryan was on the
board, along with Mr. Infinger. If Mr. Ryan felt so strongly
about the issue, why didn't he fix it in his four years on the
board? Why duck the issue for years and then complain when
another board finally takes the bull by the horns?
The way I read the story, with a 4-1 vote, one commis-
sioner voted against the decision and another one ordered
the erosion problem to be fixed. That doesn't sound much
like a rigged vote to me, Mr. Ryan.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD THURSDAY, APRIL 12, 2007


This weekend the
world of smooth jazz
descends on Gulf
Place for the 2007
Seabreeze Jazz Fes-
tival. It will be a
weekend of smooth
tunes, great art and
crowds of enthusias-
tic fans.

There is no better way to
relax the day away than by
sitting 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 this
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 a variety of top-
name, Grammy award-win-
ning smooth jazz artists.

The weekend gets kicked off
early on Thursday evening
with the Smooth Jazz Cruise
taking place on the Solaris
out of Baytowne Wharf. The
event that has been sold out
for months, will take guests
on a dinner, dancing and
smooth jazz musical voyage
around the coastline.
This event is a new addi-
tion to the weekend festival
line-up and has been well re-
ceived. Saxophone sensation
Jeff Kashiwa, is the featured

entertainment.
On Friday evening, the
Gulf Place concerts begin
with a performance by Jeff
Kashiwa, Brian Simpson and
NILS. The concert begins at
6 p.m. and tickets are still on
sale for $50 per person and
can be purchased at the gate.
Saturday the gates open at
8 a.m., and performances be-
gin at 10:30 a.m. The ticket
prices are $80 for the day.
The line-up includes: Rafe
Gomez and the Groove Bou-


tique, Jones & Co., Down to
the Bone, Nick Colionne,
Gerald Albright, Boney
James, Kirk Whalum, Jeff
Golub and Tim Bowman.,
The final day will host an-
other impressive line-up of
performers that include
Michael J. Thomas, Rafe
Gomez and the Groove Bou-
tique, Urban Jazz Coalition,
Mindi Abair, Steve Oliver
and the Jazz Attack featur-
ing Peter White, Eric Darius,
Rick Braun and Richard


Elliott.
More than 50 food,
commercial and arts and
crafts vendors will be on
hand throughout the week-
end. Paintings, jewelry, pot-
tery, jazz sculpture, jazz t-
shirts, stained glass, smooth
jazz cruise giveaways, and
other products and artistic
treasures can be found in the
market.
This year's poster and t-
shirt design was painted and
donated by renowned Ger-
man artist Alfred Gockel. His
original painting will be on
all festival merchandise. The
original artwork will be auc-
tioned off at the event to
raise money for the Music in
Schools program.
Gockel's works are col-
lected by Barbrea Streisand,
Ludacris, Christie Kerr,
Shaquill 0' Neal, Michael
Jordan an other celebrities.
Parking for the jazz festi-
val has always been problem-


atic, but this year, WSBZ is
making it as convenient as
possible. Shuttle services
will be running throughout
the weekend from Grand
Boulevard, right next to
Sandestin, and from the
various hotels and resorts
such as Tops'i and Surfside
Resort.
Organizers are requesting
that festival-goers use the
shuttle service in and out of
the concert venue, since
there will be extremely lim-
ited parking and cars will be
towed if parked on the bike
paths along CR- 30A or any
feeder road leading into Gulf
Place.
Several ticket packages
and evening concerts are sold
out, but a few tickets still re-
main for the weekend shows.
For more information, call
Hilltop Productions at 951-
2148. For ticket reservations,

Second hand smoke

PROJECTS COORDINA-
TOR, C.O.PE.
Care is taken to cover a
child's scrapes with ban-
dages. The small hands are
washed numerous times a
day and the house is kept
spotless to help prevent ill-
ness. Harm to children is not
acceptable at all. Yet in many
living rooms, where those
children watch their car-
toons, sits a smoker with a
lit cigarette right alongside.
Smoke fills the room and
the tiny young lungs in mo-
ments. This smoke, at this
point called "secondhand
smoke," is very harmful to
people and even more so to
the children and their
smaller developing lungs.
Research shows that chil-
dren with a smoking parent


are 25-40 percent more
likely to develop respiratory
problems. According to the
Surgeon General, asthma,
bronchitis, pneumonia, ear
infections, and even Sudden
Infant Death Syndrome
(SIDS) are caused by or wors-
ened by breathing second-
hand smoke.
The heart (life central) can
even become polluted. The
Environmental Protection
Agency even states that sec-
ondhand smoke hospitalizes
about 15,000 children a year
due to respiratory tract infec-
tions and causes lung cancer
in non-smokers killing ap-
proximately 3,000 of them a
year. Multiply that number
by about twenty and that is
how many non-smokers are
killed by heart disease
caused by secondhand


smoke.
What can anyone do to
protect their child? If they
are a smoker, smoke outside.
Smoke before and after short
car trips again outside. On
longer trips, try during bath-
room breaks and once
again outside as far from any
non-smokers as possible.
Also, be sure other family
members, friends, and
childcare providers are not
smoking around the chil-
dren, in your house, or in any
vehicle your child is also in.
The best thing that can be
done to protect a child is to
quit.
For help with quitting, see a
physician or try some sugges-
tions on websites such as

com or http://quitnet.com.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, APRIL 12, 2007

COPE Center stomps out sexual

violence for National Sexual

Assault Awareness Month


COPE Center will join 25
Florida communities in hon-
oring sexual assault survi-
vors and their loved ones in
our community. The April
2007 theme, "More Than
Words," was developed in as-
sociation with the Florida
A&M University Freshman
Women's group and conveys
the message that words are
not enough to express the
pain of sexual violence.
COPE Center is honoring
sexual assault survivors and
their loved ones with a dis-
play of over 100 decorated
shoes to signify "stomping
out sexual violence." The ex-
citing display can be seen at
the Market Shops at
Sandestin in store #17 dur-
ing the entire month of April.
The shoes have been deco-
rated by area sexual assault
survivors and victim advo-
cates in Walton County.
Join the COPE Center of
Walton County and MIX


103.1 on Saturday, April 21
from 11am until 5p.m. for a
day of family fun at the Mar-
ket Shops at Sandestin. The
first 100 people to visit the
Gazebo will receive a pair of
Flip Flops to signify "stomp-
ing out sexual violence". Mix
103.1 will broadcast live from
Noon until 2 p.m. There will
be activities and free goodies
for children of all ages.
Rachel Gillis, chief execu-
tive officer of COPE Center
said, "Sexual violence affects
every member of this com-
munity, and it will take ev-
eryone in this community
working together to end
sexual violence. Tackling
this issue may seem like an
insurmountable task, but
this is an issue we must con-
front. This community and
every person in it is far too
valuable to tolerate sexual
violence in any form."
Gillis went on to say, "In
Florida, a sexual offense is


reported to law enforcement
every 42 minutes. Rape
doesn't just affect the victim,
but their brothers and sis-
ters, parents, classmates,
significant others, friends-
everyone they know."
For more information on
how the public can volunteer
in Sexual Assault Awareness
month events or for COPE's
victims services program,
contact Charity Parker at
850-892-8035. Victims of
sexual assault who need
help, contact the COPE Cen-
ter at 892-HELP or 267-2220
in South Walton. ..

eradication

of marijuana

plants
Every year, the Walton
County Sheriff's Office
(WCSO) participates in the
federal Drug Enforcement
Administration's (DEA) do-
mestic cannabis eradication
and suppression program.
In 2006, WCSO
ranked first in the state for
marijuana eradication re-
silts. A total of 2,417 mari-
juana plants were discovered
and eradicated, 24 cultiva-
tion sites were destroyed, 11
arrests were made, and nine
firearms were seized. Wash-
ington County came in sec-
ond, with 2,159 plants seized
and destroyed.
These figures are con-
tained in an official report
from the Florida Department
of Agriculture & Consumer
Services, Office of Agricul-
ture Law Enforcement. That
report also stated that 49 of
Florida's 67 counties re-
ported detection and eradica-
tion of 308 "outdoor grow"
sites, with a total of 10,354
marijuana plants eradicated.

he was "shaking like a leaf,"
and appeared to be bruised.
Deputies described his con-
dition as "seriously injured,"
from cuts on his face and
hand.
WCSO deputies had been
in the area since 8 a.m., in-
vestigating a pool of blood


outside the Bank Trust build-

separated from the produce
stand area by a fence.
The man was airlifted to
Sacred Heart. Investigation
into the circumstances sur-
rounding the incident, is in
progress, and the WCSO is
treating the case as a crimi-


nal investigation.
Persons with any informa-
tion about this incident are
asked to call WCSO at 892-

2006 Annual Drinking Water Quality Report

Regional Utilities Water System


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

We're pleased to present to you this year's Annual Water Quality Report. This report is designed to inform you about the quality water and services we deliver to you every day.
Our constant goal is to provide you with a safe and dependable supply of drinking water. We want you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment
process and protect our water resources. We are committed to ensuring the quality of your water. Our water source is ground water from a total of 6 wells between South Walton
Utilities and Regional Utilities with two interconnects with the City of Freeport. The wells draw from the Floridan Aquifer. Because of the excellent quality of our water, the only treat-
ment required is chlorine for disinfection purposes.
In 2004 the Department of Environmental Protection performed a Source Water Assessment on South Walton, Freeport, and Regional Utilities systems. The assessment was con-
ducted to provide information about any potential sources of contamination in the vicinity of the drinking water wells. There are potential sources of contamination identified,near
Freeport's wells that include underground petroleum storage tanks and industrial wastewater sites. Potential sources of contamination identified near South Walton's wells include
underground petroleum storage tanks and domestic wastewater sites. Both Freeport's and South Walton's assessment results were found to be moderate to low. There were no
potential sources of contamination found near any of Regional Utilities well sites. The assessment results are available on the FDEP Source Water Assessment and Protection
Program website at www.dep.state.fl.us/swapp.
If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact Mr. Mike Standley, General Manager, or Mr. Jason Reddick, Superintendent of Water
Operations, at (850) 231-5114. We encourage our valued customers to be informed about their water utility. If you want to learn more, please contact our office at the above number
between the hours of 8:OOAM-4:30PM Monday through Friday or attend a board meeting on the third Thursday of every month at 5:30PM.
Regional Utilities Water System routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws, rules, and regulations. Except where indicated other-
wise, 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.
In the table below, you may find unfamiliar terms and abbreviations. To help you better understand these terms we've provided 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.
Maximum residual 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 residual 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.
"ND" means not detected and indicates that the substance was not found by laboratory analysis.
Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/1) one part by weight of analyte to 1 million parts by weight of the water sample.
Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter (pg/1) one part by weight of analyte to 1 billion parts by weight of the water sample.
Picocurie per liter (pCi/L) measure of the radioactivity in water.
EPA requires monitoring of over 80 drinking water contaminants. Those contaminants listed in the table below are the only contaminants detected in your drinking water.

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.
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 runoff, 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 order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the EPA prescribes regulations, which limit the amount of certain contaminants 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 reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. 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.
Thank you for allowing us to continue providing your family with clean, quality water this year. In order to maintain a safe and dependable water supply, we sometimes need to make
improvements that will benefit all of our customers. These improvements are sometimes reflected as rate structure adjustments. Thank you for understanding.
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
particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. 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).
Regional Utilities Water System would like you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources. We are com-
mitted to insuring the quality of your water. If you have any questions or concerns about the information provided, please feel free to call any of the numbers listed.

The power to


light the world

By RON KELLEY
Walter Owens doesn't look like a man who could -
change the world. He doesn't resemble Ben Franklin,
Alexander Graham Bell, Thomas Edison, Albert
Einstein or even Bill Gates. Yet, if what Walter Owens
says is true, his name might be added to that pantheon /
of inventors. If Walter Owens has his way, America
might again bring light to the world.
Owens, a retired electrical engineer, has invented a
power generator system that actually creates it's own
fuel source s tatic electricity. Owens says the machine -:
can provide a complete power source for homes, r;.
businesses, planes trains and automobiles. In fact, .
Owens says the applications are nearly limitless, but
that's not what is important. What's important is that e
others are saying it, too.
The machine (Owens' small, test-model) has been
tested and examined by independent electric motor
experts and the results were noted in a report signed
by Higinio Rodriguez, president of Gulf Coast Electric
Motor Service, Inc. in Pensacola.
According to the report, the machine requires 24 volts
to start the motor and only 12 volts to start the static -
charge.
However, it takes no amps or watts to supply the static ....
charge. The reports says "How long will it run IN
and at what loss of volts and amps? No loss indefinitely and t
running."
Owen's self-sustaining machine produced over 4,600
watts and required no coal, oil, gas or liquid fuel and
produced noc pollution and no waste by-products.
By nearly anyone's standards, that qualifies as
revolutionary to the point of science fiction fantasy.

Yet, Walter Owens doesn't look like someone out of a
Isaac Asim.ov novel or some character that Robert
Heinlein dreamed into existence. Owens brought his
working model to the Herald office in the back of his
pick-up truck and gave a demonstration for Herald staff .
and WMBB-TV 13 reporter Chris Mitchell, who
broadcast a report on Owens and his generator on
Monday evening. That machine, he said, could supply
power to three individual homes indefinitely.
One migliht assume that Owens will become fabulously
wealthy and, if his generator is as efficient as it appears,
that will ujidoubtedly occur. However, that's the other
interesting twist to this unusual tale. Owens isn't
looking for mere wealth.
"I'm 84 years old and the money doesn't make any
difference lto me. I was contacted by a firm in California
that offered to pay me $2 million for exclusive, rights,"
said Oweuis. "But I'refused. I don't want any one
company to have the technology. They'll just bury it." J
Instead, O'wens hopes to sell his invention to a large
array of individual companies and manufacturers. That
way, he says, his generator can find its way into the
hands of ordinary citizens.
As for tlhe $2 million he was already offered, Owens
chuckled ;and said, "My wife said, 'Walt, what's wrong
with you?" I said, 'Well, the good Lord told me not to
take it.' And that's just the way I feel about it."
Owens' machine cost about $20,000 to build because
of trial a:nd error and the fact that some parts were
designed and tooled specifically for this machine. TB
However,, he noted that before the system is mass while
produced, it will be re-worked and streamlined, which
will greatly reduce the production costs of individual
systems. The report by Gulf Coast Electric Motor Service
noted that "power output can be significantly increased
by reduction of flywheel weight and other system
improvements via a research and development
program.."
Owen s said he's gone as far as he can go with this
new system, now it's up to the independent ,
manufacturers to build and market the system so that '
everyone has access to this efficient, inexpensive power
source.
"The 'big people' in this country has taken advantage
of the little man through oil and power," said Owens.
"My power bill last month was $210.74. To me, that's
outrageous for a common man to have to pay that kind ;'
of money for electricity. This is built for the poor man,
the comxnon man. He's going to get the benefit of it."
Despite Owens' best intentions, the success of his .'
system could eventually cost the jobs of thousands of
traditional power company employees and industry
suppliers.
Owens disagreed. Owens said jobs will be created as
his generator system is applied to existing technology- -!,
from transportation to housing. The size of the generator .
will also vary, depending on its application. He says that
jobs in power company field and other related industries

VENTOR WALTER OWENS explains how his system is self-sustaining, needing the batteries only to start the generator
to begin to emit limitless static electricity.


Ii-.


IE SWITCH that starts it all. After the system is started, the batteries are no longer needed. The machine powers itself
supplying power to any number of power systems.

would remain viable as his system must be installed
and monitored. "This thing here can put millions back
to work and give them a decent job and it won't tear the
hearts out of the men that have to provide the end
materials," he said.
He said he's looking for about 25 or 30 American and
international companies that are interested in building .
and marketing the system. Since the WMBB broadcast
Monday., Owens said he's been contacted by a Canadian .
firm with plants in the U.S.
"Well," he said, "it looks like we've got the ball rolling :. 'A
now." "-

ALTER OWENS, a Florala resident, said his revolutionary generator can power cars, trucks, planes and houses without
ing any pollution or using any fuel source, other than what it creates itself.

Skippy Hoffinan opens door to art


LLX


By ROBIN NEWTON
Members of the Open
Door Community Club of De-
Funiak Springs were treated
to glimpse into the life of
Skippy Hoffman as she
shared stories about her pas-
sion art.
Declaring she was born an
artist, art has been and con-
tinues to be the center of her
life. When raising three chil-
dren, she would wait until
her children and husband,
Ben, had gone to bed for the
night and she would pick up
a paintbrush and indulge her
passion.
Through the years, Skippy
has developed her own
method of teaching art to stu-
dents. Her method empha-
sizes perspective, "Being able
to show depth on a flat sur-
face," she says, "is one of the
main goals of my teaching."
She teaches charcoal, pastels,
acrylics, oils and watercolors,
and usually in that'order.
Hoffman has been teach-
ing men, women and children
for the past 48 years. Years
ago, teachers would advise
parents of children with
reading problems to send.
their children to Skippy for
art lessons to help with their


coordination and concentra-
tion.
"Art lessons can impact
your life," says Hoffman, "af-
ter two weeks the students
begin to see the world from a
different point of view. It
opens the world to the beauty
around you." She adds it is
also a great stress reliever.
Hoffman recalled her very
first student in Pennsylvania
years ago. The Fuller Brush
man stopped by her house
and told her of a child who
lived along his route that ap-
peared to be quite an artist.
After thinking it over for two
weeks, Hoffman dressed her
kids in snowsuitS, drove five
miles in the deep snow and
knocked on the door. When
the child's mother opened the
door, Hoffman. announced,
"I'm Skippy and I want to see
your daughter's work." That
young child became her first
student.
Hoffman still paints as of-
ten as possible. Often she will
accept commission work, es-
pecially portraits. One of her
most requested types of por-
trait work combines family
members who have passed
away with those still living.
She has been working


with acrylics on one-eighth
inch plastic, sometimes plac-
ing aluminum foil under the ,
plastic for an unusual effect.',
In addition to art lessons !
and painting, Hoffman is
pleased to announce the',
opening of her new framing:;
shop, built by husband Ben.
She is an experienced framer
and can accommodate all;
shapes and sizes of matting;,
and framing needs.
Art lessons are available
for children who have com-^
pleted the second grade up,
through adults of any age.'"
Hoffman has also written a-
book outlining her method of
teaching.
Hoffman graciously do-:
nated one of her paintings as-,
a gift for the Open Door Club."

Imitators Drama Ministry brings

"LifeChange 2007" to Southwide, April 28


E DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, APRIL 12, 2007

Walton County Baptist

Association gears up
for Senior Adult Crusade


By BRUCE COLLIER
A troupe of actors and per-
formers is bringing a Chris-
tian drama ministry to
Southwide Baptist Church in
DeFuniak Springs on Satur-
day, April 28. "LifeChange
2007" will perform at
Southwide at 7 p.m. The ser-
vice will also feature music.
Robbie Christy is co-direc-
tor of Imitators. Christy and
co-director Michelle Emering
founded the group in
Graceville, FL, in August of
2005. "We were fellow stu-
dents at Baptist College of
Florida," said Christy. "We got
together and talked about a
drama ministry. We opened it
up and had an overflow." The
group now has 14 members,
ranging in age from 19 to 29
years. Some are still students
at the college.
The "drama services" fea-
ture short plays, both comic
and serious. All are developed
by the company, and all are
based on true events., said
Christy. The services last
about two hours. Christy was
drawn to drama ministry
when he noticed how audi-
ences retained what they saw
acted out on stage, as opposed
to what they merely heard
spoken.
The Imitators Drama Min-
istry serves the Florida, Geor-
gia, and Alabama area most
of the year, but takes the
month of May to travel to
Massachusetts for a month-
long "summer tour."
Business is good, accord-
ing to Christy. "We're booked
most weekends, and some
Wednesday nights, too."


The fellowship of Women
of Ministry and Networking
(formerly Association of
Women Clergy) invite all
women to the meeting on
Saturday, April 28, from 10
a.m.-12 p.m. at Continental
Worship Center, 2132 Hwy.
U.S. 90 W., DeFuniak
Springs.
The vision of this fellow-
ship, The Women of God's
Kingdom Networking, is to


bring about His purpose on
earth, by developing commu-
nity outreach projects, and
preparing to do a weekly T.V.
show, "The View, The Godly
Kind."
This months speaker will be
Sister Gail Whitney.

Local students win

2007 CHELCO Youth Tour


By KATHY MORROW
Four students will fly to
Washington, D.C., in June
after winning CHELCO's
2007 Washington Youth Tour
competition on March 22.
Two students who live in
DeFuniak Springs won posi-
tions as CHELCO Youth Tour
representatives. Tasha Lee,
who attends South Walton
High School, is the daughter
of James and Kim Lee, of De-
Funiak; Gabrielle McCoy,
who attends The OWC Col-
legiate High School, is the
daughter of Thomas McCoy,
of DeFuniak. These two stu-
dents will go on the trip June
9-14 with approximately 20
other high school students,
representing cooperatives
across Florida.
The other winners of
CHELCO's competition were
Zackery Jackson, a junior at
Baker High School, and Mat-
thew Sanders, a junior at
Crestview High School. The
runners-up were Taylor
Queen, South Walton High
School, and Kelly Fox, Rocky


Bayou Christian School.
The students were cho-
sen from a field of 16 com-
petitors following individual
interviews by a panel of
three judges. The judges
quizzed the students on
CHELCO facts and the his-
tory of rural electrification.
Prior to the competition,
the students traveled to Tal-
lahassee March 15-16 as
part of Florida's Youth Tour
in the capital. Students par-
ticipating in the trip and
competition included
Gabrielle Fantauzzi and
Sassy Bogart, Walton High
School; McCoy and Matt
Haemmerle, The Collegiate
High School; Fox and
Sharon Waldron, Rocky
Bayou Christian School;
Katie Jones and Forest Wil-
liams, Niceville High School;
Sanders and Nicole
Johnson, Crestview High
School; Allicia Griggs and
Tiffany Roberts, Laurel Hill
High School; Jackson and
Nikita Wilson, Baker High
School; Lee and Queen,
South Walton High School;


Josie Feldman, Freeport High
School; and Hannah
Hutchinson, Paxton High
School.
Additionally, Tyler Ealum,
Walton High School, joined
the group as a participant in
a separate Youth Tour compe-
tition for the children of
CHELCO employees.
While in Tallahassee, the
Youth Tour participants
toured the Capitol, met legis-
lators, visited the Challenger
Learning Center, and took
part in a mock session at the
Florida Supreme Court.
When the four CHELCO
winners go to Washington,
D.C., June 9-14, they will join
a Youth Tour delegation that
numbers approximately 1,500
from electric cooperatives
across the country. They will
visit many of the capital's his-
toric sites and museums,
cruise the Potomac River and
visit legislators on Capitol
Hill.
Through 24 years of
CHELCO's Youth Tour, about


CHELCO's annual Washington Youth Tour competition sends local students to Washing-
ton, D.C., for one week each June. This year's winners and alternates are (from left) Kelly
Fox (alternate), Rocky Bayou Christian School; Tasha Lee, S. Walton High School; Gabrielle
McCoy, The Collegiate High School; Zackery Jackson, Baker High School; Taylor Queen
(alternate); and Matthew Sanders, Crestview High School.


450 students have visited
Tallahassee and about 70
have taken the trip to Wash-
ington during Youth Tour
week.
Youth Tour gives public
recognition to deserving
young people who live within


the cooperative's service ter-
ritory. Through the program,
high school juniors become
acquainted with the coopera-
tive way of business and
learn about their govern-
ment.
CHELCO is a member-


owned electric cooperative
with headquarters in DeFu-
niak Springs, Fla. The coop-
erative serves the power
needs of more than 42,000
residences and businesses,
mainly in Walton and
Okaloosa counties.

TY 4 -.11.,i.11.1 we are shown
,,mm attitudes, or relation
ship, whkch should eharac-
trizw every Heaven-born

F,-i wve should receive the
Wtrd ,V> God (chap. 2:13).
i. is the fir-i great neces-
sity The \\ird of God is the
truth. All truth is of God. It
is the Word of Truth which
He by His own will gives to
us (James 1:18). This is the
result of the work of the Holy
Spirit, preparing the soil of
the heart for His incorrupt-
ible seed.
Again, we must dwell in
God. The church "is in God
the Father and in the Lord
Jesus Christ" (chap. 1:1).
Having received the Word of


truth, a believer turns to
God, and finds an abode and
resting place in Him. Those
who turn to God with all
their hearts will never seek
to turn away from Him. In
Him we are planted by riv-
ers of waters, so that the
roots of our desires are abun-
dantly satisfied (Jeremiah
17:8).
Further, we must serve
God. We "turn to God from
idols to serve the living God"
(chap. 1:9). The service of the
Thessalonians is a noble pat-
tern for us. It is a word of
faith. It is a labor of love. It
is patience of hope. It is in the
Lord Jesus Christ. It is in the
sight of God (chap. 1:3). This
cannot be mere eye service.

Blessed are all they who ac-
cept His blessing of knowing

Walton girls win



county softball title


By PATRICK CASEY
The Walton Lady Braves
held off the Freeport Bull-
dogs 9-8 in the county tour-
nament championship game
to capture the 21t," title in a
contest played at Walton
High School on Friday night.
Walton held a 9-2 lead
heading into the bottom of
the seventh inning only to
see the Bulldogs rally for six
runs in their final chance at
the plate before Heather
Hybiske got the final out
with the tying and winning
run on base.
Jesse Tucker had three
hits along with three runs
scored while Layla Roberts
had three hits and a pair of
runs.
Jordan Howell continued


her hot hitting of late with a
pair of hits while Stephanie
Morrison added two as well.
Freeport (10-12) narrowly
missed out on capturing the
title and has won seven of
their last nine contests.
Walton (11-7) got to the
championship game after a
3-1 win over South Walton in
the opening round, in a game
that also counted in the Dis-
trict 1, Class 3A standings for
the two teams.
Walton held a 1-0 lead
only to see South Walton tie
the game and threaten to
take the lead before an at-
tempted steal of home failed,
getting Walton out of the in-
ning with a tie.
The Braves were able to
scratch out a pair of runs in


the bottom of the sixth inning
as Walton escaped with the
district win to even their dis-
trict record at 3-3. South
Walton also finished the dis-
trict slate with a 3-3 mark,
and the two teams will
rematch in the opening
round of the District 1, Class
3A tournament on Tuesday,
April 17, at South Walton
High School at 6 p.m.
The Seahawks captured
the third place game with an
8-0 win over Paxton (3-11),
who fell to Freeport 8-1 in the,
opening round. Freshman
pitcher Shelby Watson held
the Bobcats to one hit while
striking out twelve in the vic-
tory as they improved to 13-

Freeport softball holds off Laurel Hill 5-1


By PATRICK CASEY
The Freeport softball
team used eight hits and
seven walks to plate five runs
in a 5-1 victory over Laurel
Hill in a non-district contest.
The Bulldogs, who had
only nine players available
for the game, were missing


three players who were on
Senior Trip, yet did not com-
mit an error in the field dur-
ing the contest.
Jordan Howell had three
singles to lead the Bulldogs
at the plate while Stephanie
Morrison added a pair of base
hits to help lead Freeport's


offense.
Laurel Hill took a 1-0 lead
as a Curstin Buford wild
pitch allowed the Hoboes to
break out on top in the sec-
ond inning.
Freeport returned the fa-
vor in the fourth inning as
Lora King tripled and scored

Seminoles give rare peek


By CHUCK HINSON
Some say it is to build up
the Seminoles' fan base after
v the past five disappointing
years. Others say it is a way
for fans to see the improve-
ments they are making on
the practice field, Either
way, Florida State is offering
a glimpse into training dur-
ing Seminoles' football spring
practice.
Fans can log onto
www.seminoles.com and
watch the players run drills,
sprints, hit, pass and scrim-
mage, in preparation for the
Garnet & Gold game' that
will take place on April 14.
The game will also be tele-
vised via the Internet.
The streaming video will
also give fans a chance to
hear comments and practice
techniques from head coach
Bobby Bowden, as well as,
returning NCltate coach


Chuck Amato, as well as,'
new coaches Rick Trickett,
Lawrence Dawsey and Dex-
ter Carter.
The website gives an up
close look at what improve-
ments and what work is be-
ing done to condition the
Seminoles for the 2007 foot-
ball season.
Other perks for logging
onto www.seminoles.com are
interviews with returning
players like Antone Smith,,
Joslin Shaw, Drew
Weatherford, Jamie
Robinson and Myron Rolle,
just to name a few. Fans will
have a chance to hear from
the players mouths what
they think are their weak
points, what they are doing
to strength-train during the
down season, and what the
the upcoming season looks
like with a new coaching
staff.


By CHUCK HINSON
Like the Weather
Channel's weekly program, It
Could Happen Tomorrow,
Florida fans were waiting to
hear about their two-time
NCAA basketball head
coach, Billy Donovan and
several key players' future at
Florida. This comes just days
after his second straight vic-
tory over Ohio State and his
second straight NCAA cham-
pionship.
Donovan admits that his
agent had talked to Ken-
tucky, but he .repeatedly
said he was loyal to Florida
and intended to stay with
the Gators. Last Thursday
morning, Donovan turned
down the offer to return to
the Bluegrass State and its
rich basketball history say-
ing he wanted to build the
same tradition in Florida.
Donovan has two years re-
maining on his current con-
tract, and is being paid $1.7
million per year. Florida ath-
letic director Jeremy Foley
and University of Florida
president Bernie Machen
have been working on a new
contract for Donovan since
last season. They said the
newi one will be worth consid-


erably more now that
Florida has brought home
the national trophy two
years in a row.
Donovan will have to rely
on back-ups and underclass-
men if he hopes to renew his
championship title again
next year. His four key play-
ers are making themselves
available for the NBA draft.
Corey Brewer, a junior for-
ward, Taureen Green, senior
guard, Al Holford, junior
center and junior forward
Joakim Noah will not be re-
turning next year and are
entering the NBA draft. The
fabulous four team mates,
roommates and core of
Donovan's Gator basketball
team for the past two years
will be leaving together and
trying to make their niche
with the professionals.
The four have won 68
games in the past two years,
including 18 .in a row in the
post-season and 12 straight
in the NCAA tournament.
This also includes two na-
tional titles.
Brewer, Horford and Noah

Green might get drafted de-
spite being considerably
shorter and only 6-foot.

"Take a

Kid Fish-

ing" day
The Kiwanis Club of DeFu-
niak Springs will be conduct-
ing it's fourth annual "Take
a Kid Fishing" day on Satur-
day, April 28, from 10 a.m. to
2 p.m. This event will be a
"catch and release" event,
and live bait only will be
used. Registration will begin
at 9:30 a.m. (there is no cost
to register). Children ages 5-
13 who are accompanied by
a parent or guardian will be
allowed to compete for prizes.
As previous years have indi-
cated, the club is expecting
over 100 children to register,
and the Lake Yard around
the pier closest to the
Chautauqua building to be
abuzz with activity. Bass Pro
Shops, Chelco, Gary Finch,
Outdoors, Wal-Mart and sev-
eral other businesses will be
on hand to pass out prizes in
several different categories of
fishing. There are other
games and contests going on
that day in which children
can win some great gifts. As
in previous year, almost all
of the children can will go
home with some kind of
prize, courtesy of the spon-
sors.
The first 50 children to reg-
ister without their own fish-
ing pole will be given a free
outfitted bamboo pole, cour-
tesy of local elected officials.
(David Green, Rhonda Skip-
per, Martha Ingle, Howard
Laporte, Mike Adkinson,
Mark Davis, and Bobby
Beasley). There will be a bait
shop on site, sponsored by
Mayor and Mrs. Harold Car-
penter, which will have wig-
glers and crickets at a re-
duced price for the children.
Hamburgers and hot dogs
will be grilled and other re-
freshments will be available
during the day. Kiwanis Club
thanks all the sponsors for
making this a great event for
local families.

What are "beer goggles"

and why are FMS stu-

dents wearing them?


Students in Mr.
Wilkerson's eighth grade so-
cial studies classes took part
in an Alcohol Awareness
Education Workshop on
April 5. They wore "Beer
Goggles," which simulate the
vision/perception changes
that occur when an indi-
vidual is intoxicated. The
impairment goggles, dubbed
"Beer Goggles" by students,
are the idea of
DrunkBusters, a Wisconsin
company that works to help
schools, law enforcement
agencies, and traffic safety
organizations educate people
about dangers of driving
while impaired. Students
were required to do a variety


of activities, including walk-
ing a straight line, holding
one foot off the ground for 30
seconds, and catching a ball.
Kayla Eldridge, a student
who took part in the exer-
cises, said "This is really
hard. I feel like I'm trying to
walk on a ball."
Students enjoyed failing
the field sobriety exercises,
but learned a lot from the
experience. Wendy Hardage,
resource officer at FMS, de-
scribed other changes that
take place when a person is
intoxicated and explained
the laws and procedures re-
quired by law enforcement
when a person is suspected
of driving while intoxicated.


ON MARCH 16, BRYAN
GILBERT of CHELCO did a
safety presentation for Free-
port Elementary School's 4th
grade students. Mr. Gilbert
used "Safety City", a wired
model city, to teach the chil-
dren how to be safe by dem-
onstrating the do's and don't
of electricity with "Neon
Leon" and "Lightning Liz."
This Safety City program is
designed to teach elementary
school children the benefits of
and dangers associated with
electricity. This activity was
enjoyed by the students and
helped reinforce lessons
learned in the classroom.
Thanks to CHELCO for this
wonderful program!

Bass On! gets national notoriety at 2007 Bassmasters Classic


by REID TUCKER
David Partridge is a semi-
official ambassador of the
United States to the people
of Japan. Oh yeah, and he's
quite the entrepreneur too.
As founder/owner of Bass
On! a bass fishing enthusiast
brand name that Partridge
himself divised, he has been
recently interviewed by


Japanese television film
crews for one of the nightly
news programs in that coun-
try. Doushite? (Doh-shih-teh:
Why?) Because his Ford
F250 deisel not only rides on
enormous off-road tires with
a ubiquitous suspension lift
kit, it also bears an uncanny
resemblance to a bass:That's
the fish, not the guitar, and
it's a really big fish.


The truck, named "Sir
Bassalot" is part of
Patridge's marketing plan for
the purpose of promoting his
fledgling brand name. Thus
far, it has succeeded. Sir
Bassalot has been the subject
of thousands of photographs
at the Bassmasters Classic.
The truck has also been
signed by numerous profes-
sional fishermen, and even
I" JI .^ 'fl siS


earned a kiss from Jimmy
Houston, one of the more pro-
lific bassing professionals.
Ray Scott, founder of the
Bassmasters Classic said,
"I've signed thousands of dif-
ferent things (in the past),
but this is the first truck I've
signed that looks like a bass."
The trip to Birmingham,
where the Classic was held,


was to promote the Bass On!
line of products, which in-
clude t-shirts, baseball caps,
radio-controlled versions of
Sir Bassalot, and other ar-
ticles of apparel and fishing
novelties. The crowds at the
Classic showed considerable
interest in the large fish, an-
other reason why the truck
is Partridge's daily driver.
"What better place to intro-


duce a fishing product than
at the Bassmasters Classic?"
Partridge said. "If it makes
it here it can make it any-
where."
So desu ka (Is that so)? Ac-
cording to the crowds at the
Classic, the answer is enthu-
siastically, "Hai, so desu (Yes,
it is)."

What to do about



seawalls?


By DOTTYNIST
"I don't think anyone re-
ally got a kick out of build-
ing those seawalls," said lo-
cal engineer Terry Anderson.
He designed a number of the
structures in Walton County
after Hurricane Dennis se-
verely impacted local
beaches in 2005.
Anderson estimated that
beachfront property owners
in Walton County paid close
to $70 million on coastal
armoring to protect their
homes.
About 60 citizens at-
tended a special Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC) meet-
ing devoted to coastal
armoring last week. The ses-
sion lasted more than four
hours and it was apparent
that much disagreement still
exists in the community
about seawalls.
Judging from public input,
some think of these struc-
tures as a saving grace, some
as a necessary evil, and some
as a blight and a curse.
Pat Blackshear, county
planning and development
services director, explained
that the April 3 meeting was
called so that county staff
could get BCC guidance on
composing "compliance let-
ters." The state Department


of Environmental Protection.
(DEP) has been requesting
these letters in order to re-
view property owners' appli-

tation at the special BCC
meeting on April 3, which

cations for permanent
coastal armoring, including
seawalls.
During several months af-
ter Hurricane Dennis hit the
Gulf Coast, and under an
emergency order, Walton
County issued over 250 per-
mits for the construction of
temporary armoring so that
beachfront property owners
could shore up their homes.
Under normal, non-emer-
gency circumstances, DEP
and not the county has juris-
diction over construction ac-
tivities on the beach forward
of the coastal construction
control line.
The emergency county
permits stated that, in order
to leave the seawall or other
armoring in place perma-
nently, a state permit would
be required.
At the time of the 2005
emergency order, county
staffs interpretation of the
Walton County Land Devel-
opment Code was that
coastal armoring was not
permitted. The only circum-
stance in which seawall con-
struction would be allowed
was under emergency autho-
rization.

By DOTTY NIST
Over 130 applications for
small-scale land use amend-
ments were prioritized in an
April 5 public drawing on the
stairs of the South Walton
Courthouse Annex.
Judging from the number
of applications, public inter-
est in land use reclassifica-
tion continues strong in 2007
despite a lagging real estate
market.
Coordinating the lottery
were Vivian Shamel and Carl
Hammons of Walton County
Planning and Development
Services.
Shamel said the vast ma-
jority of the applications
were for changes to a higher
density or from residential to
commercial. She added that
in many cases property own-
ers who paid high prices for
property in recent years are
seeking to split parcels and
sell off a portion to recoup
some of their investment.
Many are seeking reclassifi-
cation to higher densities in
order to attract buyers inter-
ested in developing property.
Each application was as-


signed a number, which was
placed on a card and enclosed
in a blank envelope. The en-
velopes were drawn at ran-
dom by Freepbrt preschooler
Malory Lewis and opened by
Hammons.


Since the early
2000s, the acreage
included in public
requests for small-
scale amendments
has exceeded tle
amount the state al-
lows to be reclassi-
fied in a given year.

The small-scale amend-
ment process is restricted to
parcels of 10 acres or less in
size. By state law, Walton
County is allowed to reclas-
sify the land use of a total of
80 acres per year through

At a special forum pre-
sented by the South Walton
Community Council, biolo-
gist Dr. Bruce Means pre-
sented a multitude of slides
detailing the rich bio-diver-
sity of the coastal plains. He
encouraged funding for more
study of the rare coastal dune
lakes found in Walton
County and almost nowhere
else in the world. Close to 100
people showed up for the
talk. ,
"The coastal plain is a
unique geological and bio-
logical area of the United
States. There are a large
number of species of sala-
manders in the region, per-
haps as many as 40 species
of salamander families living
on this coastal plain. This


area is famous for having a
large number of carnivorous
plants and may have more
than any other place in the
world between Tallahassee
and Pensacola-with the
most diversity occurring be-
tween Okaloosa and Liberty
County," Means said.
"Many of the species of
plants and animals are very
rare because of the ecologi-
cal atmosphere such as lots
of rain and sunshine," he
said. Means noted the best
way to conserve the various
species of plants and animals
to make sure the remaining
long leaf ecosystem does not
die.
"The long leaf ecosystem
once constituted 60 percent
of the landscape, but now
there is only about 2 percent


left. Long leaf areas occur
over several different types
of soil. Less than .001 percent
of the old growth is left, al-
though there is some on Eg-
lin Air Force Base," he said.
"Coastal scrub environments
are adapted to the salt spray
and many pristine coastal
scrub environments still ex-
ist.in Walton County."
Means noted the Red-
cockaded Woodpeckers are
more prevalent in Northwest
Florida than anywhere else
in the state, but "animals are
declining due to agriculture.
Planted pine stands are bad
for the environment includ-
ing tree farms as no
biodiversity can survive
there. People are the other
problem for the planet and
the other species," Means


said. in the state for protection,of
"Coastal Dune Lake envi- the environment, but

"Relocation is a developer's dream. I'm not
in favor of relocation. We need to reserve or
preserve areas where these species are or we
will pay the price." -Biologist Dr. Bruce Means


ronments are rare in the
world and a lot of study needs
to be done on the species
there. The coastal environ-
ment is relatively young in
terms of the age of the world
and I encourage funding
studies of the coastal dune
lakes."
Pat Blackshear, director of
the planning department
noted that Walton County
has some of strongest codes


stealthy activities at night
and during holidays hinder
the best efforts of the county
to protect wetlands and long
leaf systems.
"How do we calculate
plant type for restoration?"
Blackshear asked. "The cur-
rent code has no prescription
for restoration."
Means noted the problem

with restoration of areas is a
simple lack of knowledge.
"We know a lot about nature,
but we don't know enough. I
stayed in the Panhandle be-
cause it is such a rich area
for biology. Nature is orga-
nized over gradients and
people think in boxes such as
rules and regulations. The
answer may not be simple
and may not be answered
reasonably by science.
Ninety percent of all medi-
cine comes from plants and
animals and if we lose them,
we are in trouble," he cau-
tioned.
Although Means is a con-
sultant to Nokuse Planta-
tion, which has taken the
lead in the relocation of en-
dangered species, Means is
no fan of the practice. "Relo-
cation is a developer's dream.
I'm not in favor of relocation.
We need to reserve or pre-


serve areas where these spe-
cies are or we will pay the
price," he said.
When trying to balance
development with preserva-
tion, Means made the com-
parison of how difficult it is
to build and maintain a bal-
anced environment in an
aquarium. "Building that
balanced environment is
what we need to do world-
wide. We do affect our planet
and the planet will reflect
that," he said.
Means concluded by say-
ing the science is simply not
in existence to back up the
destruction of the wetlands.
Scientists know there is a
loss of plants and animals
when wetlands are devel-
oped, but the long-term effect
on groundwater is not
known.

small-scale amendments.
Walton County reserves
40 of those 80 acres for
county-sponsored small-
scale amendments.-'Forty
acres are available for the
small-scale amendments re-
quested by the public.
Since the beginning of this
decade, the acreage included
in public requests for small-
scale amendments has ex-
ceeded the amount the state
allows to be reclassified in a
given year. Walton County
initiated the small-scale
amendment lottery in 2005
as a way of dealing with this
high demand.
Parties whose applica-
tions got top priority in the
drawing will have 60 days to
complete the application pro-
cedure. Proposals for small-

scale amendments will also
require consideration by the
Walton County Planning
Commission and approval by
the Walton County Board of
County Commissioners.
Fees for land use reclassi-
fication are based on the size
of the property, and run into
the thousands of dollars.
Applications assigned
lower priorities may get the
opportunity for consideration
in 2007 if ones higher on the
list drop out. This can occur
due to costs or failure to ob-
tain county government ap-
proval.
Shamel said that another
way land use reclassification
on some of these parcels may
occur is through the large-
scale amendment process.
Walton County is now work-


ing on large-scale land use
amendments to implement
the evaluation and appraisal
report (EAR) that was ap-
proved a few months ago by
the state. Shamel said plan-
ners are looking at the entire
county in developing these
county-sponsored amend-
ments.
"We are proposing land
use changes in areas where
they make sense," she said.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, APRIL


SEAWALL

April 3 special meeting casts
doubt on that previous inter-
pretation of county code.
Property owners were re-
quired to apply for state
coastal armoring permits
within 60 days of finishing
the construction of their sea-
walls or other armoring
structures.
Over a year and a half
later, the state has issued
permits for only a handful of
armoring structures. Accord-
ing to the latest knowledge
of county planners at last
week's meeting, there had
been only five such approv-
als and a couple of denials.
All other applications 'are
said to be still pending with
the state.


"All seawalls are
going to cause some
impact...it's a matter
of degree, "said coastal
scientist Dr. Bob Dean.


Since the county land de-
velopment code addresses
activities connected with ero-
sion on the beach, the state
requires "compliance letters"
from Walton County stating
whether a coastal armoring
structure complies with
county code. These letters
are a requirement in order
for a state coastal armoring
application to be processed.
Due to coastal armoring
structures having been ap-
proved as part of an emer-
gency order, Walton County
has provided some letters in-
dicating that structures do
comply with county code.
County legal counsel Mike
Burke estimated that the
county had issued "80 or so"
such letters, and that ap-
proximately 40 armoring ap-
plications were now awaiting
accompanying county letters.
Blackshear noted that
county staff members have
struggled with writing these
j; letters due to the fact that
,eo nty3-code"indicates that
structures s causing erosion,
cannot be 'permitted. She
said that recent new requests
for armoring that are not
part of the emergency order
have been a particular con-
cern.
"We decided we needed
some good legal guidance,"
Blackshear said. She ex-
plained that outside legal
counsel Harry Chiles was en-
listed for a review of county
code relevant to these con-
cerns.
Chiles announced that,
after a review of applicable
sections of the Walton
County Comprehensive Plan
and land development code,
he had reached the conclu-
sion that seawalls are not
prohibited in Walton County.
In fact, some -types of
armoring are "warranted in
some instances," he said.
Chiles called coastal
armoring "not as much a le-
gal as a technical issue,"
based on the amount of im-
pact that will result, includ-
ing erosion on the dune sys-
tem and adjacent property,
restriction, of beach endan-
gered species movement, and
loss of beach vegetation.
SChiles recommended that
; structures be evaluated on a
S"case-by-case basis," with
county staff reviewing poten-
Stial endangered species and
Vegetation impacts. He also


FROM FRONT

recommended the enlistment
of coastal scientist Dr. Bob
Dean to determine potential
erosion impacts.
It was Chiles' opinion that
the county code requires a
major county development
order "hand in hand" with
the state approval process for
coastal armoring structures.
He added that he thinks
staff will recommend a modi-
fication to a minor develop-
ment order for seawalls or
other coastal armoring.
Dean noted that coastal
armoring has been widely
studied nationally and inter-
nationally. On beaches
where coastal erosion exists,
such as those in Walton
County, armoring causes "ad-
ditional stress" in areas ad-
jacent to armored areas.
The amount of erosion on
adjacent areas increases
based on the length of the
armoring structure, the ero-
sional stress occurring during
high water conditions and
increased wave activity ac-
companying storm surges, he
explained.
"Each seawall is unique,"
Dean said, adding that each
,requires case by case evalu-
ation.
"All seawalls are going to
cause some impact...it's a
matter of degree," he said.
Dean said that design fac-
tors, including placement of
the structure as far landward
as possible, can moderate
those impacts, along with
covering the seawall with
sand.
A sand covering on the
structure provides "a reser-
voir of sand" to counter ero-
sion on neighboring property,
he explained.
"Beach nourishment is go-
ing to be the ultimate an-
swer," Dean concluded.
Plans for beach nourish-
ment along over 12 miles of
critically-eroded county
beaches along CR-30A are
being pursued by Walton
County. The process is a
lengthy one. A five-mile-long
beach nourishment process
on the west-end of the county
was recently concluded.
'1 Chiles suggested amend-
ing the county code to require
property owners to ensure
that seawalls remain covered
with sand.
Representing beachfront
property owners on'Winston
Lane in Inlet Beach, attorney
William Hyde called the pro-
posed county review process
"unnecessary," "contrary to
your past procedure," and "a
duplicative local planning
process."
. "DEP already handles the
process well," Hyde con-
cluded.
Attorney Patrick
Krechowski agreed, adding
that the temporary armoring
permits issued by the county


Bruce Naylor.
Owner-Broker

did not reference any re-
quirement for approval by
anyone other than DEP in
order for the armoring to be-
come permanent.
Other attendees objected'
to Dean being set up as the
sole "seawall czar" to rule on
their structures.Burke re-
sponded that it would be pos-
sible to challenge a decision
by Dean in a variance proce-
dure.
Bob Dobes, a homeowner
in Old Seagrove, had a dif-
ferent set of concerns. He un-
derstood from Dean's presen-
tation that erosional effects
would increase with the
length of seawalls. He was
concerned about potential
risks to the coastal dune
lakes and local state harks
resulting from walls being
placed close to them. He also
wondered if extending walls
near neighboring county
lines would increase erosion
there.
"Will we be the domino
that makes all of Florida ar-
mored?" he questioned.
Beachfront property
owner Bill Higgins said he
understood people needed to
take action to protect their
homes, but was concerned
about seawalls exacerbating
beach erosion. He continued
that it is his belief that
Florida statutes prohibit any
development that damages
his property, which is
unarmored. He added that
sand covering mitigates but
does not remove the erosion
process and expressed con-
cern about adequate moni-
toring of sand covering.
Seagrove Beach home-
owner Scott Bruns said he
had never been notified
about seawalls that were be-
ing constructed on the beach
-and that he is "threatened by
those walls."
"I'm worse off," he noted.
Montgomery Street
beachfront homeowner Jim
Eaton requested that the
BCC wait and "see what the
legislature does" before act-
ing, since statutes clarifying
the use of geotube-type
armoring structures are now
being considered in session.
Local attorney, Frank
Watson was concerned about
the amount, of work that the
proposed county review pro-
cedure would put on staff.
Gulf Trace homeowner
Lee Perry said he thought
the BCC should encourage
armoring, since without it,
unsightly erosion under
homes would continue indefi-
nitely. However, Perry said
he would not be willing to
pay $100,000 every year to
keep his armoring covered
with sand.
Beachfront homeowner
Sherry Rayborn was dis-
tressed that "Two years later
we're still talking about the
same thing." She described
herself as "in limboland."

dent Alan Ficarra
complimented the BCC for
considering the county re-
view procedures. He encour-
aged Walton County's par-
ticipation in this process to
ensure that "county con-
cerns" are addressed. He
called arranging for Dean's
assistance "a wise step by the
county."
Terry Anderson said he
wished that all the money
spent on seawalls could have
gone into a beach nourish-
ment project. However, he
said that the armoring had
been necessary to prevent
the immediate loss of homes.
Without such action, much of
the dune system would also
be lost, he commented.
"We're caught in a stale-
mate here," Anderson said of
the situation with DEP re-
quiring compliance letters
from the county.
Blue Mountain Beach
resident Juanito Durand
said he would never have
built a seawall after Hurri-
cane Dennis if he had under-
stood he might have to tear
it down.
"I don't think I am person-
ally going to vote to have any-
one remove a seawall that's
there," District 5 Commis-
sioner Cindy Meadows re-
sponded.
"I don't think any of us
want to see us ripping out
seawalls," agreed District 4
Commissioner Sara.
Comander.
Meadows' concern was
whether the entire beach
would end up being "walled
up.1
"We definitely need to deal
with this so it doesn't happen
again." she said.
Meadows thought that re-
quirements for building
walls in the future should be
"very stingent" to protect the
best interest of the public.
Comander's opinion was
that the county's main role
in the future with the new re-
view procedure would be to
ensure "that walls remain
covered with sand."
"All of us want to protect
your property rights and pro-
tect the beaches for the years
to come," Comander told the


homeowners.
"You can't change the
rules midstream," protested
local attorney Gary
Shipman. "The citizens of
this county have a right to
have the rules spelled out by
the government and rely on
those rules," he added.
Meadows recommended
that the commission set up a
"vesting category" for exist-
ing armoring structures and
existing armoring/armoring
permit requests. New re-
quests after a certain date
would be required to follow
the new procedures that had
been discussed.
County Commission Chair
Ken Pridgen agreed that
emergency permit holders
should be dealt with "differ-
ently," adding that a require-
ment to keep armoring cov-
ered with sand is essential.
"Let everybody's ticket get
stamped for the dance with


PAGE 3-C
DEP," countered District 1
Commissioner Scott
Brannon.
Brannon said he would
not favor a BCC action that
would treat any coastal
armoring application in a dif-
ferent way from other appli-
cations.
Several motions were ini-
tiated by the commissioners
but none were approved.
Burke called Meadows
support of a vesting category
"a very creative solution" but
advised that linking it to a
date might not be the most
appropriate method.
He proposed that he de-
velop an alternate plan and
bring it before the commis-
sioners at their April 10
meeting for consideration.
1 It was decided that the
topic would be taken up
again on that date, with ac-
tion on the matter possible at
that time.

Movie Review


"Firehouse Dog" is a best-of-

breed family flick


By BRUCE COLLIER


Todd Holland's "Firehouse
Dog" almost instantly reminded
me of those Walt Disney movies
of the '60s and early '70s. If you
are of a certain age, you may re-
call "The Barefoot Executive,"
"The Ugly Dachshund" or "That
Darn Cat." Each featured a
highly-trained animal sur-
rounded by assorted human ac-
tors. Each had comedy, a little
drama, and some life lessons.
So it is with "Firehouse Dog."
As with the above movies, this
one is based on a premise that
just doesn't bear close scrutiny.
Not to worry, because the film
is so well done and engagingly
acted that by the time you start
asking questions, it's over.
The titular canine is Rexxx,
a dog "action hero." Rexxx has
starred in a litter of blockbuster
movies, such as "Jurassic Bark"
and "The Fast and the Furriest."
He's rich or at least his owner/
manager Trey, played by Dash
Mihok is rich. Like many big
stars, Rexxx has his share of
personal issues. And thereon
hangs, or wags, his tale.
Rexxx falls from a plane
while filming a skydiving se-
quence. He lands safely in a
truck full of tomatoes, and hops
out in the middle of a strange
city. He finds his way to an
empty building, which catches
fire. Rexxx is rescued by the
brave captain of Ladder 55, a


fire station struggling to survive
city budget cuts.
The captain, played by Bruce
Greenwood, is having problems
of his own. In addition to his
troubled command, he is deal-
ing with the recent loss of his
firefighter brother, and with his
pre-adolescent son Shane.
Played by Josh Hutcherson,
Shane is a good kid and a smart
student, but the loss of his be-
loved uncle and poor perfor-
mance at school have driven a
wedge between him and his fa-
ther.
If you have any experience
with movies of this kind, you
know that Rexxx and his up-
right associates are all in for a
shot 'at transformation and re-
demption.
The key to making a movie
like "Firehouse Dog," that won't
end up in Sequel Hell or the ev-
erlasting bargain bin is to start
with quality ingredients. To this,
add a script that's kid-friendly
without being simplistic or
preachy, and enough action and
dramatic tension to keep the
adults from resorting to their
iPods in mid-movie.
Holland works this magic.
His corps of human performers
is a good cross-section of gen-
ders, ethnicities, and personali-
ties. The Ladder 55 crew boasts
two black men, two white men
(one a handsome but dim
blonde), and a Hispanic woman.
Holland does this without call-


ing attention to it. Shane and
his young friends are normal,
nice, and free of those desper-
ate trappings of hipness that a
less sensitive director and
screenwriter might have tried to
lay on them.
Then there's the dog. Rexxx -
known to his rescuers as Dewey,
thanks to a prop collar he was
wearing when he fell out of the
sky is played by four lookalike
dogs.
You'll see why, when you
catalog the array of tricks the
pooch pulls off in the film.
Rexxx/Dewey can leap in all
directions,somersault, bounce,
turn vicious on command, play
hurt and asleep, sprint, jump
through fire, skateboard, fetch
and retrieve, push buttons, and
apparently slide down a firepole,
though that last one might have
been gaffed.
"Firehouse Dog" is rated PG,
probably because there is a
share of adult-themed crime and
violence, and the kind of "mildly
crude humor" so it says on the
ratings notice one associates
with dogs and their functions.
I'll leave it to you to guess what
it is.
Of course, the movie ends
happily, with lives mended, les-
sons learned, and friends re-
united. If you're a dog lover, and
I can't imagine going to this
film if you aren't, stick around
for the end credits. Holland of-
fers a small visual treat, and you
don't have to beg, just sit up.
