Cemetery

board

favors new

permits

By LEIGH STRICKLAND
The DeFuniak Springs
Cemetery Board held its
quarterly meeting on Tues-
day, April 17. Discussion pri-
marily focused on the devel-
opment of a permit policy for
Magnolia Cemetery. City
Manager Kim Presnell called
this measure "more regula-.
tory in nature." She said, "It's
not a money maker."
The city has met with area
funeral homes and monu-
ment companies, who are re-
portedly receptive to the
plans.
The permit, which is still
in draft form, pulls informa-
tion from the city ordinance
for the cemetery. It serves to
make existing guidelines
clear. Presnell said, "It'll help
in the communication pro-
cess." The board approved
sending the permit draft to
the city council for further
action.
Sara Bowers, financial di-
rector for the city, was also
present to discuss the finan-
cial status of the cemetery
fund.
"It's one of the more stable
funds," Bowers said. She
added that the main variable
with the cemetery is the
number of lots sold. "Provid-
ing nothing unforeseen,"
Bowers said, the cemetery
fund should stay in budget.
March 31 marked half of
the fiscal year and, according
to the financial report, rev-
enue for the cemetery has to-
taled $73,876.50. Total ex-
penditures have totaled
$63,344.23.

The Walton County School
Board met on Tuesday, April
17, to receive an update on
capital project issues
throughout the county as the
current school year enters its
final six weeks for teachers
and students.
Board members were in-
formed that the Paxton High
School gymnasium will be
nearing substantial comple-
tion in May. Brick work is
nearly complete around the
building and metal roofing is
almost 95 percent complete.
Interior walls are being
primed and painted in the
structure.
The Mossy Head School is
still receiving site work with
the bridge work continuing.
The retention pond is also
being constructed and

DFS Council


members say hell


and goodbye


By LEIGH STRICKLAND
As a result of recent city
elections, new faces were
seen at Monday night's meet-
ing of the DeFuniak Springs
City Council. New council
members Henry Ennis and
Wayne Graham were sworn-
in while two longtimq,mem-
bers of the council said their
goodbyes.
MarkAnderson, a 20-year
veteran of the council, was
honored for his contributions
to the city throughout his
long tenure. Anderson was
elected 10 times in succes-
sion. Council members joked
that he was known for being
thrifty with the taxpayer's
money, always asking, "Is
that in the budget?" Ander-
son said he was leaving with
what he called "mixed feel-
ings." He also said, "It has
been an honor and pleasure
serving the citizens of DeFu-
niak."
Exiting councilman Roy
McLeod was praised by the
council for his work with the
Chautauqua Hall of Brother-
hood and for his involvement
with the DeFuniak Springs
Business and Professional
Association's (DBPA) annual
Fourth of July celebrations.
McLeod was also known for
being unafraid to cast the
dissenting vote, sometimes'
representing the minority,
but determined to vote his
conscience. He thanked the
council and crowd and said,
"It has been a joy serving the
city of DeFuniak."
Mayor Carpenter and City
Marshal Mike Adkinson
were also sworn in at the
meeting, the mayor by
County Judge David Green
and Chief Adkinson by the
mayor.
New council members in
place, the council voted to ap-
point James Huffman as
mayor pro-tempore, a kind of
"deputy mayor" who can act
in the absence of the mayor.
It's a position he has consis-
tently held in recent years.
Councilman Don Harrison
said, "He's done an excellent
job in the last few years."
No change was made to
the regular schedule of city
council meetings, which are


held on the second and fourth
Monday of each month at
seven p.'n. at the DeFunaik
Springs City Hall.
Getting down to business,
the new council heard an un-
usual variance request that
also brought neighbors out to
the meeting. The request,
made by Todd Cimmino of
MarSalvor Holdings, was re-
garding property on North
1st Street, about one mile
north of Hwy. 90 E. The com-
pany wants to operate a
claims asset storage facility
on the property. The property
is a wooded area, currently
zoned R-1 single-family and
agricultural zoning classi-
fications that would not al-
low for the proposed busi-
ness.
-Although the DeFuniak
Springs Planning Board rec-
ommended approval of the
request, the council voted
unanimously against it. That
vote came after the council's
expression of a variety of con-
cerns, among them concerns
for neighbors, the environ-
ment, property value, and
the precedent that would be
set by allowing the variance.
Several neighbors also spoke
out against the request. Most
were concerned about in-
creased traffic through the
area.
Councilman Harrison
said, "The value of the prop-
erty is going to remain higher
in the future if this remains
residential."
Councilman Huffman said
of the neighbors, "They don't
deserve to be living next to a
salvage yard of any kind."
In other city news, Walton
County Superintendant of
Schools Carlene Anderson
came before the council to re-
quest the opening of a city
street that would improve
traffic flow to West DeFuniak
Elementary School.
According to Anderson,
the school currently only has
one street for entering and
exiting the area. The traffic
on this one road, she said, in-
cludes that generated by 700
children and 82 school em-
ployees. Some twenty school
buses also access the school

Relay for Life of DeFuniak
Springs will take place this
Friday evening, April 27, at
Harbeson Field, the athletic
complex adjacent to the De-
Funiak Springs Community
Center. Harbeson field is on
9th Street, a few blocks north
of downtown. Opening cer-
emonies start at 6 p.m. Ad-
mission is free, but there will
be ample opportunity for do-
nations to the American
Caner Society.
The Relay was originally
planned for Walton High
School's athletic field, but
site preparation work for the
new school has proceeded
more quickly than antici-
pated, disrupting sanitation
and parking facilities and ne-
cessitating the change.
Registration of cancer sur-
vivors for the opening lap will
begin at 5 p.m. At 6 p.m. the
WHS R.O.T.C. unit will
present the colors and Marie
Hinson will sing the national
anthem. These ceremonies
will lead to the Survivor's
Victory Lap, which empha-
sizes by concrete example,
that cancer can be success-
fully beaten with a fighting
spirit and the resources of a
united community. The Sur-
vivors' Victory Lap, will be
followed by a dinner honor-
ing he participants and their
caregivers.
From 7 p.m. until 8 p.m.
entertainment with an inspi-
rational theme will be pro-
vided by the singing group 4-
Ever His and the Leap of
Faith Praise Band. The ever-
popular 'Ms. Relay,' a pag-
eant featuring men dressed
as women, who will no doubt
make up in courage for what
they may lack in beauty, will
be held at 8 p.m.
The highlight, of the


evening will be the
Luminaria Ceremony at 9
p.m. This is an emotionally-
charged event featuring pa-
per bags illuminated from
within, on which are irf-
scribed names memorializ-
ing those loved ones who
have lost their battle with
cancer and honoring those
who are winning. -.
Throughout the evening.
judging will be ongoing of the
twenty Relay Team camp-
.sites, which will be hosting
any visitors who wish to stop
by. Judging is for various
prizes accordingto each site's
decoration on the theme of
"Once Upon A Cure," the food
it's selling for the cause, and
its cancer education efforts:
More live music will be pro-
vided starting around 10
p.m., including performances
by Lee Touchton and Lin
Merritt. Various zany activi-
ties are planned throughout
the night, including a scav-
enger hunt, a limo race.
Chip-Off-the-Old-Block (a
sort of frozen T-shirt contest),
the Chubby Bunny competi-
tion, a Hula-Hoop contest,
and a battle of prodigious ice-
cream eaters. Meanwhile,
Relay teams will try to keep
a member on the track at all
times, vying for various lap-
based prizes.
Saturday morning vyill in-;
clude sunrise service at 7
p.m., a performance of inspi-
rational music at 9 p.m. by
Alpha And Omega; and. a
Memory/Honor Lap at 10:30,
with closing ceremonies at 11
p.m. The Relay promises to
be an inspirational event ap-
propriate for the whole fam-
ily. with lots of opportunities
for fun;, education, and coli
tributions to an important
cause.


Christmas



comes early



for DBPA


By LEIGH STRICKLAND
Howard Rinker of Christ-
mas Reflections came before
the DeFuniak Springs City
Council this week to request
permission to donate $6,000
from the Christmas Reflec-
tions fund to the DeFuniak
Springs Business and Profes-,
sional Association's Fourth of
July celebration held annu-
ally in the city. According to
Rinker, the group wants to
sponsor the Fourth of July, to,
help make sure it goes on in
perpetuity. Rinker noted the
gift is made up not of city tax
money, but of money col-
lected from visitors to Christ-
mas Reflections.
Sara Comander, president
of the DBPA, which sponsors
the event annually, ex-
pressed gratitude. She said,
"This gives us such a sigh of
relief."
Comander also mentioned
the opportunities the funding
will create for quality activi-
ties during the celebration.
Fireworks generally count
for the largest expenditure
by the volunteer organiza-
tion, but getting top-quality
entertainment is also an ex-
pensive undertaking. This
year's. special musical guest
will be Shane Owens.
The council approved
Rinker's request. City Man-


ager Kim Presnell said, "It's
nice to see a community
event supporting a commu-
nity event."
Jonathan Dunn of Aero
FX, the company that oper-
ates the DeFuniak Springs
Airport, requested permis-
sion to. sublease one of the
airport's hangars to a char-
ter service out of Destin.
Dunn said, "It's another
great opportunity for eco-
nomic development." The
company plans to base a
plane in DeFuniak Springk,
which Dunn said will gener'-
ate jobs and revenue for the.
city. The council approved
Aero FX's request.
In other airport related
news, the city is looking into
the purchase of property at
the west end of the airport
runway. Council members
approved' seeking an ap-
praisal on the property. Said
Councilman Don Harrisori,
"We definitely need land
down there."
After several meetings be-
tween the city of DeFunialk
Springs and the Bright
House Networks cable corn-'
pany, an agreement has been
drawn up. The public will get
a chance to give further in-
put, as a public hearing was
set for the next meeting of
the city council.

Juniper Lake Conservancy

hears update, elects officers


The Juniper Lake Conser-
vancy (JLC) met Tuesday,
April 17, for the purpose of
hearing updates on various
projects as well as electing
new officials.
Former JLC President
Sally Johnson presented an
update regarding lake draw-
down. Johnson received her
report from Bob DeMauro of
the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Commission who reported
that muck deposits in ex-
posed areas of the lake, ini-
tially one to four feet deep,
have recently dried and com-
pacted to a depth of six
inches or less. This develop-
ment should result in signifi-
cant improvement of the fish-
eries habitat, reported
DeMauro.
DeMauro additionally
wrote in his report to the JLC
that the lake's outflow valves
have been closed and that
"the lake will now fill up as
quickly as sufficient rain is
received." DeMauro's report
also stated that repairs to the
water control systems will be
underway shortly and should
not delay the refilling of the
lake, which is estimated to


take between nine to twelve
months under normal rain-
fall conditions.
However, the main em-
phasis of the meeting was the
election of new officials, a
fact cemented when Johnson
announced the resignation of
not only herself as president,
but also all other currently
standing JLC officers. Nomi-
nations were made and elec-
tions were held, with the fol-
lowing people elected to the
following positions: Clark
Whitney, president, Steve
Cole, vice president, Julie
Cole, secretary, Dee Whatley,
treasurer, Bill Van Dyck and
Bob McNeil, directors. Presi-
dent-Elect Clark Whitney
said of the outgoing officers,
"We commend them for their'
years of sacrificial labor on
behalf of Juniper Lake and
all those who use it and en-
joy it. We are grateful for all
they have done."
The newly-elected officials
also heard discussion of some
issues related to the ongoing
drawdown project. Several in
attendance spoke of concerns
they had with the
drawdown's unsuccessful at-
tempt to significantly affect


the problem with aquatic
weeds, while others ex-
pressed concerns as to why
certain maintenance
projects, such as as the re-
moval of stumps and trail
cuttings, have yet to occur.
The new officers made it
clear that efforts to deal with
the weed problem are still in
progress. It was suggested
that the JLC establish an
ongoing "weed- abatement
program."
As to the trail- cutting and
stump-removal endeavors,
the JLC officials reported
that discussion with various
government agency repre-
sentatives was underway.
Consensus is currently that
these projects will take effect
when the lake fills back up
with water. Officials were
adamant .that these projects
be completed as soon as pos-
sible due to the importance
of a network of trails, as this
is deemed to be a crucial as-
pect of any effective spraying
program aimed at reducing
excessive aquatic weed
growth in the lake.
Clark Whitney, as new
president of the JLC said, "I

questions related to this topic:

Question: Do you have to have a fishing license if you are fishing from a pier?

The Facts: A Florida resident fishing from land or a structure fixed to the land a pier,
bridge, dock, floating dock (attached to land), jetty or similar structure does not need a

Question:. Do you need a fishing license if you are on a charter vessel?

The Facts: If you are fishing from a vessel- guide, charter,
party boat or head boat with a valid recreational fishing license,
you don't need a license.

Question: Do you need a saltwater license if you catch
saltwater fish in freshwater? .

The Facts: If an angler catches a saltwater fish in freshwater
from land or from a structure fixed to land he/she will not need -.
a saltwater license. If he/she is fishing from a vessel, he/she will '
need a saltwater license.

Relay for Life Motorcycle Run results


Despite formidable wea-
ther conditions, the Relay for

EDITOR'S COMMENT

Forewarned

is forearmed

By RON KELLEY


The Legislature's in ses-
sion run for your lives! Well,
it's not quite that bad, but
this group still needs our
close scrutiny. Knee-jerk re-
actions and political games
resulting in half-baked laws
oten seem to be the order of
the day.
Currcnily, the Florida
House and Senate are debat-
ins ,pt\pt .iax reform. This
will atff't ll htoie and prop-
oert, owners in one way or
anothwi,
The House plan would al-
low e- maissioners in each
uanty to decide whether to
elin"iate pi.poity taxes on
homesteaded properties only
and increase sales tax by 2.5
percent or simply roll back
the property tax base to 2001
levels. Counties in which one
ail raises no more than $5
million in revenue, such as
Holmes, Washington and
Jackson counties, would be
excluded. Walton County
vwoul Id not. Budgets would in-
crease as population in-
creases.
To make up the shortfall,
the plan would cut $6.3 bil-
lion next year from local gov-
ernment for a total cut of $25
billion over a five-year period.
The Senate's plan is much
more modest. It would cut no
more than $11 billion over
five years. It would require
counties and cities to roll back
their property-tax base to
2005 levels, but does not
eliminate existing property
taxes on homesteads. Instead,
itdoubles the homestead ex-
nemption to $50,000, but only
for first-time home-buyers.'
The average taxpayer
would see an average savings
of about six percent.
Of these two choices, the
House plan .seems the most
equitable and would make a
much greater impact.
However, both plans miss
the boat in one crucial regard.
Both assume that the state
must maintain its own bud-
get and its own level of spend-
ing.


That's ludicrous. I told
you these politicians bear
watching.
The state wastes billions
every year. The Legislature
should put its own house in
order first before dumping
the whole load on local gov-
ernments. Admittedly, there
is waste there, too, but noth-
ing on a scale to match the
often reckless spending hab-
its of the Florida Legislature.
Nowhere in either of.the tax
plans did I see where the
House or Senate volunteered
to make do with less, in sup-
port of tax relief for the citi-
zens they claim to serve.
Both plans are identical
in one aspect one way or an-
other, citizens are going to
pay for the difference so Big
Government can go along its
merry way unimpeded and
unchecked.
Republicans are supposed-
to be against more govern-
ment, but even they seem de-
termined to enable it to grow.,
Democrats need a big gov-
ernment to pay the bills for
all society's ills (or at least
throw money at them). As' a
conservative caught in the
middle, I think government
needs to shrink, not squeeze
taxpayers harder just to
keep itself overfed.
No matter how you feel
about the issue, now is the
time to call, write or visit
your House and Senate law-
makers and let them know
how you feel. They need to
realize that we taxpayers
know the difference between
real tax reform and the same
Old shell game of robbing
Peter to pay Paul.

It's time our lawmakers
pushed away from the
trough and cut back- their
consumption of pork and fat.
SAfter all, the rich would have
to eat money if the poor did
not provide the food.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


Editor:
Ordinarily, I would not respond to the letter by Lawrence
Cross regarding my letter concerning McCullough Road.
However, his letter opens the door on a larger matter.
First let me set the record straight. The dispute over the
closing of McCullough Road was addressed during my ten-
ure on the BCC. The resident who had closed the road was
instructed by the Board to open the road. At that time, he
was also informed of the established procedures for request-
ing abandonment of a road. To my knowledge, this individual'
has never initiated the required procedure. "
Since I have not been a member of the BCC during the
intervening years, it was hardly my responsibility to address
any issue and particularly not one that had not been brought
forward. The current board made a decision about
McCullough Road but not before kicking the can down the
road to the Planning Commission whose recommendation
they ignored. The larger matter here is the inference that an
individual commissioner should act independently.
Commissioners are members of a legislative body that rep-
resents all county residents. As such they are obligated to
function as a board.
The tendency of some commissioners to take actions inde-
pendent of the board has been a major inhibitor of efficient
management. This was a major factor in deciding to cen-
tralize departments under the BCC. In order to make a
smooth transition and gain maximum benefit, a manage-
ment study was commissioned. Although the recomnenda-
tions arising out of that study were approved by the BCC, ',
they were never fully adopted. The propensity for commis-
sioners to attempt micromanagement of the departments
under their purview has created havoc with budgeting and
job scheduling. This has also been responsible, in large part,
for the excessive turnover in the Public Works director's po-
sition. Evidence of the problem can be'seen in the inability
of the board to push projects through to completion or to
even get them started for that matter. It is not at all unusual
for someone who has attended a meeting to read the press
coverage and wonder if the reporter attended the same meet-
ing. This phenomenon may be attributable to nothing more
sinister than a difference in depth of frames of reference.
One final note, the McCullough Road issue has not yet been
put to bed. There is on going litigation that may negate the
abandonment decision.

Editor:
It occurs to me that the environmental "problems" that
the eccolarmists ballyhoo could be partially solved by some
simple actions in Washington and DeFuniak Springs.

For instance, if we would limit speeches in the Senate and
House to one minute per-month per person, and committee
meetings to 15 minutes a week, think of the hot air emis-
sions squelched, not to mention savings in medical costs be-
cause of reduced occurrence of ulcers.
Then we could limits bills and resolutions to 10 printed
pages, which would save an entire forest somewhere.
Now, if DeFuniak Springs would adopt the new "environ-
mental" policies of New York City, and the proposals of the
producers of Al Gore's movie, we would be on our way to
"something," I just don't what.
NYC wants to charge $8 per day, per car that drives into
the city a tax on additional C02 in the concrete jungle.
Maybe DFS could levy such a charge on every car entering
the city limits to shop at Thrift-Way or Ace, eat at Mamies,
'or get a gas-guzzler at Triangle.
Then to be secure in the promise to use only one sheet of
toilet tissue per visit to the loo, WC, or lavatory (Gore's min,-
ions' desire), require all grocery, convince, drug, and notions
stores to limit sales to one roll per family per week.
I don't believe that the savings in sewage treatment chemi-
cals has yet been calculated, but I'm sure that it would be
significant.
Ah, America. Where else can you try to supervise the most
intimate moments and tax the inconvenient, all for ridicu-
lous reasons?
Robert E.' La Favre
DeFuniak Springs

Editor:
Once again we see a great tragedy with the killing of 33
kids in our schools. Why are these things happening to us a
nation that is, so-called, a Christian nation? But are we? Lets
see.
We refuse to let our teachers teach any part of God's word
(the Bible). In fact, they can't even mention it in our schools.
The Bible is forbidden in our schools. We have taken God
and put him underfoot. They even tried to take God's name
off our money.
Our leaders can't pray in a public meeting or mention Jesus'
name without someone claiming we have violated their
rights. We get into trouble if we post the 10 Commandments
in a public building. And when something like this happens,
its okay to go to God in public and ask him, '"Lord why did
you allow this to happen?"
My, I just can't imagine why? Can you? Wake up.

Editor:
My reign as Miss Walton County ended withthe crown-
ing of a new queen, Miss Sassy Bogart. It has been an in-
credible year for me and is hard to believe it.is over. What I
gained representing the citizens of Walton County is an ex-
perience I shall never forget and will forever cherish.
Trying to thank everyone who helped me on this journey
would be impossible. The support I received was overwhelm-
ing from the moment I was crowned. Sponsorship of the
Walton County School Board made this all possible and I
thankthem tremendously for the opportunity. The Chamber
of Commerce gave me numerous opportunities for grand
openings and ribbon cuttings all over the county. I thank our
county commissioners for support and opportunities to meet
with them. I appreciate Channel 24 for interviews allowing
me to speak to the local community, Art and Marty Dees of
WZEP for recordings and interviews, Mr. Donnie Richardson
for a personal tour of his peanut fields and teaching me ev-
erything I didn't know about the peanut industry.
The South Walton TDC was very generous with gifts and
well-wishes. Mrs. Theresa Bogart, I thank for publicity and
lining up appearances. My friends from DeFuniak, Freeport,
south Walton and OWC have been instrumental in making
this year successful with gifts, support and well-wishes.
I thank my parents and family who have tirelessly sup-
ported me in everything. Finally, the two people who hand-
carried me through it all, Ms. Christa Merrifield-Mitchell
and Mr. David Pert. I can tell you, it doesn't get any better
than them. I could never thank them enough.
From ribbon cuttings all over the county, reading to. .l-
ementary students, parades, visiting and singing to the citi-
zens at Stanley House, to dinner with New 'York's Mayor
Ruddy Guilianni, it has been a blessing and I will forever be
grateful for the opportunities afforded me.
I carried my love of Walton County to Dothan's National
Peanut Festival and left everyone there asking about my own
'personal paradise' 'on the 'World's Most Beautiful Beaches.'
I also told them of the beautiful farmlands, and the warmth
of small-town living here. Walton County is paradise because
of the people--not just the beautiful surroundings.
Again, thank-you, Walton County, for all the opportuni-
ties and the love you showed me as your ambassador. It was
a privilege and I pray I represented you with poise, integrity
and style. I will carry the hearts of each citizen with me wher-
ever I go.
Rachael Jones
Miss Walton County 2006

Editor:
Recently, the Florida legislature said "no" to labor unions,
trial lawyers and the NRA's Tallahassee lobbyist. The House
of Representatives rejected a bill that would have dramati-
cally trampled the private property rights of property own-
ers in Florida. On behalf of property owners, the Conrstitu-
tion and advocates of less government regulation, we applaud
this bold and courageous vote.
Unfortunately, the NRA has reacted to this defeat in the
legislature by attacking Florida businesses and legislators
for doing the right thing. I have spoken to many disappointed
NRA members who feel lied to by their association upon hear-
ing the facts surrounding this issue. Floridians have. real-
ized that no problem exists in Florida today that warrants
the draconian, anti-freedom, big-government solution the
NRA lobbyists were selling.
Again, we applaud the legislature for protecting the sta-
tus of the second amendment while simultaneously protect-
ing private property rights. Saying "no" to special interests
is a sign that the legislative process is working in Tallahas-
see. Now let's hope the process works the same to reduce our
property taxes.,
Mark Wilson,
Executive Vice President,
Florida Chamber of Commerce

Editor:
I have recently had the opportunity to see just how won-
derful our town is'. In September 2005, my wife, Barbara,
was diagnosed with breast cancer. At the beginning of the
year, her health deteriorated and she passed away on April
9.
Through this time of grief and pain for my family, numer-
ous people throughout the community have shown their con-
cern for us and their respect for Barbara. We know we have
had many people praying for us and for that we are extremely
greatful. We have also received many cards, donations of
food and offers of help. It has amazed us and has helped us
through this difficult time to realize how much Barbara
meant to so many people here in DeFuniak.
We are thankful for everything that everyone has done
and are also thankful for all the support and concern shown
by Baldwin Avenue Baptist Church. Please continue to keep
my family in your prayers as we face difficult days ahead of
us. We are honored to be a part of such a special community,
God bless each of you.

Walton County to consider fire impact fee

with it the need for expan-
sion of fire rescue facilities,
and Walton County is mak-
ing plans to keep pace.

County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC) will
hold a public hearing to con-
sider imposing impact fees to
fund fire protection capital
facilities made necessary by
new development.
If imposed, these fees
would apply to impacts in un-
incorporated areas not part
of independent fire districts
and in Paxton, since an
interlocal agreement, exists
between that city and the
county for fire protection ser-
vices. This is the area for
which county-managed Wal-
ton Coynty Fire Rescue is the
major service provider.
In an April 10 county
workshop, the BCC dis-
cussed fire impact fees and
heard recommendations
from consultant Marguerite
McCauley of Government
Services Group, Inc.
"The purpose of the charge


is to impose upon newcom-
ers, rather than the general
public, the cost of new facili-
ties made necessary by their
arrival," McCauley ex-
plained.
Developers would pay
these fees either at the time
buildings were permitted or
when certificates of occu-
pancy were issued.
McCauley noted that im-
pact fees must fund capital
facilities, not operations and
maintenance, Fees cannot
exceed the cost of those facili-
ties, and proceeds must be
held in trust to be used for
growth needs.
Fees must be used within
a reasonable length of time
or else must be refunded, she
added.
To calculate the amounts
proposed to be charged for
fire impact fees, pertinent
factors were the fire appara-
tus cost and building facility
costs per fire incident. Pro-
posed fee amounts were re-
duced by factoring in credits
for other future revenues,
such as grants, that would
fund the same facilities.
McCauley's recommenda-

tions were for a fire rescue
impact fee of $275.36 per
unit of development for resi-
dential projects, $3.36 per
square foot for commercial
projects, twenty cents per
square foot for industrial or
warehouse projects, and
$1.32 per square foot for in-
stitutional projects.
As compared with fire im-
pact fees in neighboring
counties, these rates are "not
unrealistic or unreasonable,"
McCauley noted.
For comparison she pro-
vided per-unit residential
rates for four other counties:
Bay $374.88; Gulf- $88.32;
Wakulla $317.84; and
Washington $106.59.
The commissioners may
consider exemptions for af-
fordable housing, projects
and/or for new businesses
coming into the area that will
provide jobs above a certain
wage level.
In a departure from past
procedures, the commission-
ers took a vote at the April
10 workshop. Traditionally,
board action has been re-
served for regular, or special,
or emergency meetings.

Choctawhatchee River Soil and


Water Conservation District


2006 ANNUAL REPORT
The Choctawhatch ee River Soil and Water Conservation District, which
covers Walton County, Florida had another successful year in 2006 through
the conservation of our soil, water and renewable resources.
The conservation district was organized in March 1940 under the authority
created by the Soil Conservation Act passed by the Florida Legislature in
1937. It was formed. for the purpose of providing an organized procedure for
assisting farmers and land users with problems related to soil and water con-
servation. The conservation district is a subdivision of state government with
a governing board of five locally elected supervisors.
Technical service is provided to the District by the United States
Department of Agriculture, Natural Resources Conservation Service. The
conservation district has an agreement with the USDA whereby the Natural
Resources Conservation Service provides technical information arid profes-
sional personnel t'o assist it in carrying out and maintaining soil and water
conservation measures on properties within their county boundaries.


ACCOMPLISHMENTS
The following are some of the District's accomplishments and activities
during FY 2006:
Resource Man agement Systems 6,445 acres planned; 8,360 acres
applied.
Erosion Tons Saved 17,035
Acres of Wildlife Benefited 5,353
Inventory and Evaluations 12
Number of practices applied 60
Environmental Quality Incentive Program 20 applicants serviced with
17 contracts approved totaling $507,045
Conservation Reserve Program 16 contracts were approved over a 10
year period. Total of $219,345 for paid on all contracts
Number of units of government assisted 22
Total landowners assisted -, 3,072
Fiscal year 2006 was the tenth year of the nationwide conservation pro-
gram known as the Environmental Quality Incentives Program. This pro-
gram combined the functions of the Agricultural Conservation Program,
Water Quality Incentive Program and the Colorado River Basin Salinity
Program. To date there are a total of 152 EQIP contracts in Walton County.
The Wildlife Habitat Incentives Program (WHIP) is a voluntary program
for landowners who want to develop and improve wildlife habitats on pri-
vate land. Through WHIP, USDA's Natural Resource Conservation Service
provides both technical assistance and up to 50% cost-share assistance to
establish and. improve wildlife habitats. WHIP agreements between NRCS
and the participant generally last from 5 to 10 years from the date the agree-
ment is signed. ,
In addition to the program work the conservation district has available for
sale the following resource materials: The Walton County Soil Survey CD,
USGS Topographical. maps for Walton County and Walton County Plat
books.

the poster design for this year's event. The original piece was
sold in a silent auction to a California collector for more than
$7,000 with proceeds benefiting the local 'Music in Schools'
program.

TRUMPET GURU RICK BRAUN, wasted no time in
making his music soar as he wowed the crowd on the Sunday
evening performance. Braun also did the high school band

2007 Seabreeze Jazz


Festival


- Another


record-breaking year
By CHUCK HINSON
Neither wind, nor rain, nor even limited park-
ing, kept away more than 10,000 ticket holders
from the four-day 2007 WSBZ Seabreeze Jazz Fes-
tival event that took place at Gulf Place, April 12-
15. The event brought together a variety of
Grammy award-winning artists to one venue.
The weekend festival got kicked-off aboard the
Solaris Dinner Cruise with a performance by Jeff
Kashiwa. After dining on the lower deck, ticket-
holders made their way to the sky deck for an
evening of smooth, breezy music.
The smooth jazz cruise was a new addition to
the festival line-up. Many said it set the tone for
the upcoming weekend. Organizers have already
planned to bring the cruise back next year as the
kick-off event for the 2008 Seabreeze Jazz Festi-
val
On Friday evening, more than 2,500 people
made their way to Gulf Place for an evening of
more smooth jazz. Brian Simpson, Jeff Kashiwa
and NILS brought the people to their feet as they
played favorites from past albums, as well as new
releases.
Throughout the entire weekend, ticket-holders
got a chance to browse among more than 40 craft
artists and dine on a variety of dishes, including
pork, fried fish, shrimp, hamburgers, chicken
plates, hot dogs and beverages.
Saturday morning, the gates opened at 8:30.
More than 4,000 smooth jazz lovers poured back
into the venue for the first full day of the festival.
Despite a cloudy day and the threat of rain, the
weather played fair and thousands were able to
enjoy a full line-up of entertainers.
Performers like Rafe Gomez, Jones & Co., Down
to the Bone, Nick Colionne, Gerald Albright, Kirk
Whalum, Jeff Golub, Tim Bowman and Boney
James, got things heated up on a rather chilly af-
ternoon. With sax solos and screaming guitars,
blaring trumpets and pounding percussions, ev-


GERALD ALBRIGHT KNOWS HOW to blow his own horn,
and he proved just why he is considered one of the best in the
business during his performance.
ery smooth jazz appetite was satisfied.
That evening as shuttle buses and vans loaded,
Mother Nature finally had her way with the festi-
val and the skies poured, but not until the final
person had vacated the venue.
Sunday morning, the gates opened once again
with more than 3,500 making their second and
third trip into the Gulf Place amphitheatre for the
final day of jazz. Despite winds gusting up to 35
miles an hour, fans bundled up in the 50-degree
weather and settled in for 10 straight hours of mu-
sic.
Michael J. Thomas got things started with his
gospel sounds that set the mood for the rest of the
day. Throughout the day, the crowd heard Mindi
Abair, the Urban Jazz Coalition, Steve Oliver, Eric
Darius, Peter White, Rick Braun, Richard Elliott
and Jonathon Butler.
"There is nothing like playing a trumpet, just
feet from the most beautiful waters and getting
paid for it at the same time," said performer Rick
Braun. He and several others commented that
there is no place like the Florida Emerald Coast.
Throughout the weekend, many crowd members
were asked by organizers about where they were
from and what they thought about the area. Many
said that, of all the jazz festival they attend around
the nation, including the Jacksonville Jazz Festi-
val, the Capital City Jazz Festival in Washington,
D.C. and the Catalina Island Jazz Festival in Cali-
fornia, this is the best they have attended.
"I have gone to the Capital City Jazz Festival
for more than a decade and this was my first time
to come to the Seabreeze Jazz Festival. I will be
making my one and only smooth jazz stop on the
Emerald Coast from now on," said Alphonso
Dupree, of Dallas.


SAXOPHONISTS MINDIABAIR, had no problem getting
the crowds on their feet during her Sunday performance. Abair
was also celebrating her second wedding anniversary the same
day. She was meeting her husband in south Florida later that
evening.

Ticket-holders from Alabama, Georgia, Texas,
Mississippi, Louisiana, Arkansas, California, New
York, Illinois, Vermont, Tennessee, New Mexico;
Florida, Maine, Nevada, Washington, Missouri'
and Virginia, and tourists from England, Austra-
lia, Spain, Venezuela, SouthAmerica and the Neth-
erlands, booked months in advance to get a glimpse
of their favorite smooth jazz artist.
Many of those attending, planned their entire
year's vacation around the jazz festival weekend:
This not only put heads in beds all along the south
Walton beaches, it brought in dollars to restau:
rants, shops, nightclubs, and other places of busi-
ness.
The actual amount of what the weekend took in
from visitors has not been announced, but no other
event throughout the year brings in more people
to the Florida Panhandle. Writers from music and
smooth jazz magazines were also on hand to cover
the event, which has gained international notice.
Though the 2007 Seabreeze Jazz Festival has
come and gone, plans for the 2008 Seabreeze Jazz
Festival are already in the works. Thousands will
be making their way back to Walton County next
April for another weekend of smooth jazz along
the Emerald Coast.

view of the program and ex-
plained that it's not neces-
sary to be a veteran, or be
related to a veteran. Regis-
tered voters just need to 'stop
by the SOE office and select
a veterans name from the list
of those participating inl the
program. Voters will be given
a special sticker to wear to
the polls stating, "I'm Voting
in Honor of a Veteran." Any-


SDFSTTroop


one who votes in honor of a
veteran will receive another
special sticker that states, "I
Voted in Honor of a Veteran
Today."
The intent of the SOE Staff
is to personalize the voting
experience for everyone and
show gratitude to those who
have given so much so that
we all may continue to live
in freedom and exercise our
right to vote.
The' Pilot Club meets the

ways hben an iiimpiortant part
oflour national Lcharat'er, and
it is I t'oL're lhit guided the
Amnricain people."

Standing in the Gap is a
phrase taken from the Bible
that states "And I sought for


a man among them, that
should make up the hedge,
and stand in the gap before
me for the land, that I should
not destroy it, but I found
none. Ezekiel 22:30. Presi-
dent Bush declared a Na-
tional Day of Prayer 2007
Proclamation, expressing "A
prayerful spirit has always
been an important part of our
national character, and it is a
force that guided the Ameri-
can people."

Gap" call Daryl and Shayne

A search

for one thing


O. R ROBERTM. JAYE
All men and women are
"! seekers. However, none of
them seek for the seeking
.God, Romans 3:11 reads that
il,'o is none that seeketh
.11-,.r God" Y I that which
mankind needs is the very
God for which they do not
seek, lB ,i t, i do seek after
God. David wrote in Psalm
27:4, "One thing have I de-
ired of the Lord, that will I
sle k ..-1 .r "
Note what this one thing
was.. It was not an earthly ob-
>orr it was fellowship
I in God. He sought this be-
eause he was reconciled to
G od This is the position of
every believer. He sought it
because he loved the com-


pany of God. Being made in
the image of God, he had a
resemblance to God.

Two reasons at least exist
as to why he sought the
things of God. One, he
wanted to see the beauty of
the Lord. The Lord God is
altogether lovely. There is
great beauty in His charac-
ter it is holy, pitiful, mighty.
He is lovely as prophet, priest
and king. And this is a beauty
that never fades. Second,
David wanted to inquire in
His temple. He was anxious
to know the truth of God. The
Lord is the great teacher.
When the Lord Christ came
from God, no one spoke as He
did.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, APRIL 26, 2007


Note how David sought
this one thing. He sought it
earnestly. All his desire cen-
tered in this one thing. It was
as if he had a single line of
sight for the things of God.
And he sought it with deter-
mination. "That will I seek
after." He would not cease
until he found it. He sought
it successfully. This we may
be assured of because he
sought it from the Lord. Our
Christ told the result when


He said in Matthew 7:7,
"Seek and ye shall find."
God's beauty is an element
that never fades. It is a
beauty that lasts forever, and
is dear to all believers. Hu-
man forms, pleasures and
possessions will wither. The
Lord remains; seek His
beauty and reflect it in your
life. He and His teachings can
give rest, rest above all the
things of life. Seek Him now,
believing friend.


Attend the church of your

choice this Sunday!

Sports commentary


Tide vs. Noles


By CHUCK HINSON
The Florida State football
team completed its final
practice of the spring with
the annual Garnet & Gold
game on April 14, and fans
were impressed with the no-
ticeable improvements the
team had undergone since
the end of last season.
The scrimmage pitted the
offense versus the defense
with a scoring system in
place to determine the out-
come. The offense, led by
quarterbacks Xavier Lee and
Drew Weatherford, shined on
the field as they edged the
defense 29-25, due in large
part to TD strikes from both
quarterbacks.

":f The 14 'days of practice
that FSU had, plus the Gar-
- net & Gold game, has fans
and Seminole team members
looking for great things in
the 2007 season. With school
coming to a close for the se-
mester, many are looking for
more improvements by the
team and the various new
coaches that have filled
empty positions on the coach-


ing roster since January.
But will it all be completed
and the team ready for action
when they open their season
against Clemson on Sept. 9
in Death Valley against
Bobby's oldest son and the
Clemson Tigers? Are the
Seminoles ready for another
year behind the throwing
arm of quarterback Drew
Weatherford, or should
Bowden let back-up quarter-
back Xavier Lee have his
time in the sun?

Those questions will have
to be answered prior to the
season start, but will need to
be resounded loudly when it
comes to playing what has
already been considered the
game of the decade, against
Nick Saban and the Alabama
Crimson Tide on Sept. 25.
Fans of both sides, players,
alumni and even the betters
in Vegas are saying this could
be the game that could shape
Saban's career, and could be
his first real test of facing an
ACC team and the old man
at the helm.

- History in the making


bama football team com-
pleted its 13th practice of the
spring last Tuesday after-
noon with a two-hour prac-
tice in shoulder pads and
shorts at the Thomas-Drew
Practice Facility. Alabama
quarterback John Parker
Wilson (Hoover) said the of-
fense has worked hard this
spring was excited about
Saturday's A-Day game at
Bryant-Denny Stadium.
This past Saturday was
the first time that fans were
able to see first-hand, Nick
Saban's coaching style and
what he is planning on bring-
ing to the Alabama football
playing table at the annual
spring game. Both the of-
fense and the defense, rose to
the occasion and showed not
only vast improvements from
last year, but a sense of re-
newal of the old 'Bama days
of (should it be uttered?) the
Bear Bryant era.
For many, the Alabama
coach's unprecedented sal-
ary, matched with his con-
tract deal with the univer-

South Walton High School
had a strong meet at the
Class A regional held at
Florida High in Tallahassee
and Paxton and Ponce de
Leon grabbed individual
qualifiers for the state meet
at Showalter Field inWinter
Park to be held on Friday,
April 27.
Katherine Register led the
way for South Walton by

run with a second place
finish with a time of 2:30.84.
Drew Taylor just missed

as an individual in the 400
meter dash as he finished
fifth with a time of 51.94.
Austin Buzzett also fell into
that category with a sixth
place finish in the 800 meter
run with a time of 2:08.25.
Chase Hooker finished
fifteenth in the 200 meter
dash with a time of 26.89
while Craig Dermody earned
a sixth place finish in the
event with a time of 23.68.
Charlie Tidwell finished
ninth for the Seahawks in
the discus throw with a toss
of 32.66 meters. He also
finished tied for tenth in the

meters.
Paxton did well in the
discus as Sweetwater Brown

34.49 meters. Erin Walker
and Vikki Pepper finished
fifth and sixth in the event
as Walker's toss went 31.41
meters and Pepper's 30.53.

come from four points back
for the victory over the Eu-
ropeans at the Country Club

Crenshaw finished in a tie
for 26th place at the 2006

2007 NCAA football season.
It will also give Saban and
his team the chance to prove
to all those who doubted the
Tide's return, that they have
a chance to once again be rec-
ognized as a football power-


house.
Both teams have already
begun the buzz after the
meeting in Jacksonville and
many say that with Saban's
win-win attitude and record
at LSU, and with Bobby
Bowden's completely new re-
shaped, reorganized and re-


assembled team and coach-
ing staff, this game will be
the first real test for both
football programs.
It may also prove which

In less than three
weeks, two of
the longest-running art
shows will take place.
On Mother's Day week-
end, the West Indies
Market at Rosemary
Beach and the Cultural
Arts Association
ArtsQuest Fine Arts
Festival will kick off the
fine art season along the
Emerald Coast

For nearly a decade, the
Rosemary Beach West Indies
Market has been growing
and expanding on the lawns
of Rosemary Beach. Artists
and crafters from all across
the country and from over-
seas make Rosemary Beach
one of their many stops on
the art show circuit through-
out the United States.
In the past few years, the
market has been fine-tuned
and now boasts more than 50
fine artists and crafters in all
mediums including pastel,
oil, watercolor, pen and ink,
sculpture, pottery, stained
glass, hand-crafted jewelry,
hand-made furniture, metal,
and wood art. From $25,
bracelets and necklaces to
$2,500 paintings, any art-lov-
ers taste can be satisfied.
The West Indies Market
takes place every second
weekend of each month from
May to August. Upcoming
dates include May 12 and 13,
June 9 and 10, July 14 and
15, and Aug. 11 and 12.
Times are 11 a.m. 6 p.m.
each day of the market.
The first market takes
place on Mother's Day week-
end, May 12 and 13, and will
showcase nearly 60 artists.
Throughout each weekend,
there will be live entertain-
ment by d.j.'s and local and
regional bands.
Last year, more than
10,000 attended the four-
weekend markets from May
until August and visitors and
art enthusiasts from all over
the United States, South
America and Europe,
shopped and experienced the
market. The market is free to
the public.
For more information on
the West Indies Market, or

ing markets, call Hilltop Pro-
ductions at 951-2148 or log

On the same weekend, the

ArtsQuest Fine Arts Festival.
It is a week-long celebration
of the arts.

Arts Festival, a juried show,
featuring over 100 regional
and national artists on May
12 13.
One of the largest art
shows in Northwest Florida,
the Fine Arts Festival will
once again be held along the
shores of the
Choctawhatchee Bay at the
Village of Baytowne Wharf at
Sandestin Golf and Beach
Resort.
' The Village of Baytowne
-Wharf will-be dotted with
white tents of over 100 juried

try. They will display their
art in all mediums, including
oil, acrylic, fiber, jewelry, pas-
tel, mixed media, photogra-
phy, digital art, metal, sculp-
ture, pottery, glass and wood.

ment, a CAA member art

Beach restoration question

under high court review


By DOTTY NIST
With plans for local beach
restoration projects hanging
in the balance, the Florida
Supreme Court has taken on
a landmark case involving
large-scale beach nourish-
ment, whose outcome will
likely have,statewide impli-
cations.
Oral arguments on the
matter were heard on April
19 in Tallahassee.
The case was originated
by a small group of local op-
ponents of the joint Walton
County-Destin beach resto-
ration.
In a July 2005 administra-
tive hearing, members of
Walton County-based Save
Our Beaches, Inc., and
Destin-based Stop the Beach
Renourishment, Inc., were
unsuccessful in their legal
challenge of the state permit
'for the beach restoration
project.
However, an appeal of that
ruling by the two groups re-
sulted in the First District
,Court of Appeals reversing
the previous decision. The
'appeals court declared in-
,valid two sections of the
Florida Statutes regarding
beach restoration as applied
in the particular project, and
negated the state permit for
the Walton-Destin beach
nourishment project.
That decision came in
spring 2006 during work oit
the Walton County portion of
the beach restoration project,
which involved approxi-
mately five miles on the west
end of the county and two
adjoining miles in Destin.
The restoration continued
as the local governments
challenged the appeals court
decision. The Walton County
portion of the project was
completed in January 2007.
The Destin portion has yet to

pensation," said attorney Dan R. Stengle.

"They don't lose their property," said attor-
ney Scott Makar.


be commenced due to dredg-
ing equipment being unavail-
able.
Walton County has plans
to restore an additional 12.9
miles of beachfront, but that
project has yet..to be permit-
ted by the state.
The small area of
beachfront adjacent to- the
Walton County project's op-
ponents' homes near
Sandtrap Road was not re-
stored.
As a result of a petition by
Walton County and Destin,
the Florida Supreme Court is
reviewing Florida Statutes
on beach restoration to deter-
mine whether or not the ap-
plication of those statutes
has deprived opponents of
the local project of their prop-
erty rights without due com-
pensation.
The setting of the erosion
control line (ECL), which has
been a requirement for large-
scale beach restoration
projects in Florida, has been
a central element of the
property owners' case.
Many local beachfront lots
are deeded to the mean high
water line, which meanders
with beach 'conditions. Lo-
cated at the average location
of the mean high water line,
the ECL separates formerly
submerged state-claimed
sovereign lands, supple-
mented with offshore sand,
from upland private prop-
erty. After large-scale resto-
ration projects, the state


views the restored
beachfront south of the ECL
as public property.
Restoration opponents
have argued that this prac-
tice represents a "taking" of
their property without com-
pensation and violates their
"riparian" rights, meaning
specific rights attached to
lots as beachfront property.
Representing the property
owner groups at the April 19
Supreme Court oral argu-
ments, attorney Dan R.
Stengle repeated the argu-
ment that setting the ECL
has deprived the property
owners of the "right to accre-
tion" on their lots as sand ac-
cumulates there naturally.
He added that the owners
are also being deprived of the
right for their property "to
touch the water."
Stengle contended. that,
creating a "demarcation
line," (the ECL), to replace
the "constitutional meander-
ing line," the mean high wa-
ter line, represents a prop-
erty rights violation.
"They have taken property
without compensation," he
told the justices.
Stengle also repeated the
argument that the local gov-
ernments "haven't met the
permit conditions" by demon-
strating "sufficient upland
interest," i.e. ownership, of
property in the project area.
If this view prevails with

Designed to take whatever
the wind might throw their
way, impact-resistant win-
dows and doors are a pricey
option that will soon be re-
quired in a broader area of
Walton County and the rest
of Florida's panhandle.
Walton County Building
Director Billy Bearden said
that wind-borne debris re-
quirements, which mandate
impact-resistant openings,
are scheduled to expand on
March 8.
Walton County's wind-
borne debris zone, which cur-
rently extends one mile north
of the coastline, will enlarge
to include the entire 130-
mph wind zone and a portion
of the 120-mph wind zone
that lies within 1,500 feet of
the Choctawhatchee Bay.
"It's going to extend quite
a bit further in some places.
Everything south of the
Choctawhatchee Bay and the
Intracoastal Waterway will
be in that zone, and then
1,500 feet on the north side
of the Choctawhatchee Bay,"
Bearden said.
He said new homes will
have to comply with the re-
quirements, but pre-existing
constructions are not re-
quired to meet the stan-
dards.
However, additions to pre-
existing constructions must
meet the new requirements,
as well as any remodeling
that affects the openings.
Bearden said some owners of
older homes have voluntar-
ily installed shutters.
The new requirements,
which affect the area from
Franklin County to the west-
ern Alabama border, are still
not as strict as in the rest of
the state, where all areas
with basic wind speeds of 120
mph must comply with wind-
borne debris standards, ac-
cording to the Florida De-
partment of Community Af-
fairs Web site. Bearden said
the'Panhandle's terrain and
location in relation to the
peninsula influenced the
more lenient standards.
Kurtis Gurley, an associ-
ate professor in the Depart-
ment of Civil and Coastal En-
gineering at the University of
Florida, conducted research
after the 2004 hurricanes.
His research on Charley,
Frances, Ivan and Jeanne
showed correlation between
the building codes and re-
duced home damage.
"It might be worth noting
that the state of Florida is
fairly aggressive in their ap-
proach to improving the way


we build houses," Gurley
said. He said that the Florida
Building Commission con-
tinuously learns from hurri-
canes and is responsible for
adjusting the building code
to reflect its findings.
Steve Young is a licensed:
contractor and owner of
Steve Young Construction
LLC in Walton County. "The
Florida Building Code is
probably one of the tougher
codes around because of the
wind loads and so much
coastline," he said.
Young, who has worked iix
construction in Florida for 26
years, said that from his per-
sonal observations, later con'-
struction projects have fared
much better, especially in in-
land areas. He gauged his
observations using Hurri-
cane Andrew.
"So many of the hurri-
canes that we've had re-'
cently, the damage that was
'done was pre-Andrew con-'
struction," he said.
Gurley also said that as-t
pects of the Florida Building;
Code that have been tested,
such as roofs with newer!
shingle products, have fared,
better than their pre-code;
counterparts.,
"The whole name of the;
game is to only improve the,
areas of construction that we;
think will have a significant.
impact," Gurley said.
Gurley said that the;
Florida Building Code is:
meant to be thorough but not;
come across as frivolous.
"The key is to only enforce,
and create changes that can:
be shown to have an impact:
on the survivability of homes.
during hurricanes," Gurley?
said. "It's easy to say 'use:
more nails and thicker wood,'"
and all that stuff, but,if you
don't put the nails in the?
right place, and so on, it's:
very easy to drive up the cost,
of a house without signifi-:
cantly improving its wind re-:
sistance."
He said that the Florida'
Building Commission's de-.
sign makes this possible..
"Some of the people on'
Building Commission are:
home builders," he said.:
"There are representations.
from industry and so on to
help, hold the line."
Gurley said the Florida
Building Commission's
equivalent does not exist in
other states. He calls
Florida's policy "progressive."
"Instead of just accepting
the damage and rebuilding,
let's make it so that it doesn't
get damaged next time," he
said.


Board orders fines for "amusement park"

By DOTTY NIST
Intrawest Sandestin has
been directed to cease opera-
tion of a water slide, a
bungee jump, a coconut
climb, and other recreational
activities near the gulf on
Sandestin Golf and Beach
Resort, until a development
order and building permits
are obtained for the rides.
Over $7,250 worth in fines
has also been imposed, with
additional penalties to accu-
mulate if the activities are
not stopped.


At a quasi-judicial hearing
by the Walton County Code
Enforcement Board on April
19, testimony showed that
the resort had been operat-
ing the recreational area for
approximately four years
without having obtained a
development order or per-
mits. The resort did obtain a
permit for the putt-putt golf
course.
The hearing was a result
of a complaint filed approxi-
mately one year ago by Jim
Watling, a neighbor of the


parcel where the rides have
been in operation. In June
2006, the resort had previ-
ously been directed to shut
the rides down by the code
enforcement officers. The re-
sort contested the existence
of a violation, and the activi-
ties continued.
Homeowners in the
Beachside II condominium
complex have objected to the
activities in their vicinity as
disruptive and degrading to
their property value.
Representing Intrawest


"They can comply, but they 've got a lot of
complying to do," said Code Enforcement Board
member Charlotte Flynt.


Sandestin at the April 19
hearing, attorney William
Hyde made the argument
that the recreational activi-
ties are a "club for children
and teenagers." The parcel
where they have been oper-
ated has been designated
since the 1970s for "club use"


as part of the resort's origi-,
nal development of regional
impact (DRI) as approved by.
the county.
The neighbors and their
attorney David Theriaque re-
jected the "club" classifica-

tion out of hand and called
the operation an "amuse-
ment park."
"This walks like an
amusement park, it quacks
like an amusement park, and
it's got, a water slide,"
Theriaque said.
A vice president of resort
activities testified that the
recreation area brings in
over $100,000 per year and
that it is important to the
resort in attracting families
with children. He noted that,
although fees are charged,
the rides are not open to the
general public but only to
club members.
Hyde told the code en-
forcement board members
that the resort is exempt
from the requirement for de-
velopment order and build-
ing permits because the DRI
was approved in 1976, prior
to the adoption of the first
Walton County Land Devel-
opment Code.
County staff brought up
the provisions of section
1.02.02 of the code, which
states, "If a DRI development
order has been amended
since May 1, 1991, the
changed portion of the DRI
only may be required to con-
form to the requirements of
this code and may be re-
quired to obtain a permit is-
sued under this code."
While Hyde stressed that
"use" on the parcel had not
changed since being desig-
nated as club in the original
DRI, county staff and board
members noted that there
had regardless been a
"change" to the site in 1998,

Oyster Warning Pearls of wisdom


THIS WATER SLIDE located near the gulf on Sandestin
Resort was one of the recreational activities found in viola-
tion by the Walton County Code Enforcement Board on April


19.

when the parcel, Lot 113, was
divided into Lot 113A and
113B through an amendment
to the DRI.
While board members
were split in their opinions
as to whether the recre-
ational activities would
qualify as a club, they agreed
that the amendment would
have negated the resort's ex-
emption from development
order permits and building
permits.
Following a motion by Ri-
chard Fowlkes, the resort
was found in violation by
unanimous vote. Three sepa-
rate fines of $250 per day
were imposed due to the lack
of a development order,
building permits, and failure
to cease operation following
a stop work order. The fines
are to continue until the de-
velopment order and build-
ing permit are approved or
compliance is otherwise


achieved.
The motion also called for
the resort to be charged $250
a day for each day, from
March 21 to the present, that
operation had continued in
violation of the stop work or-
der.
Board members noted
that some items that will
need to be dealt with in the
development order process
will be stormwater design,
handicapped access, and
parking and bathroom facili-
ties.
"They can comply, but
they've got a lot of complying
to do," commented board
member Charlotte Flynt.
Hyde requested a stay on
enforcement of the board's
order but was denied. He in-
dicated that he would seek a
stay through the court sys-
tem while pursuing an ap-
peal.

According to an April 20
release by The Bay County
Health Department, three
have fallen ill after eating
raw oysters. The reports led
the department to issue
warnings to consumers on
how to enjoy shellfish and
avoid illness.
They name Vibrio
vulnificus as the bacteria
within raw shellfish that
causes the illness.
For now, do not eat raw
oysters or other raw shell-


fish. Cook shellfish (oysters,
clams, mussels) thoroughly.
For shellfish in the shell,
either boil until the shells
open and continue boiling for
five more minutes or steam
until the shells open and
then continue cooking for
nine more minutes. Do not
eat those shellfish that do not
open during cooking. Boil
shucked oysters at least
three minutes, or fry them in

STurtle nesting season begins May 1


By LEAH STRATMANN
In anticipation of the be-
ginning of turtle nesting sea-
son, which begins May 1, the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) is holding a workshop
on Saturday, April 28 begin-
ning at 10 a.m. The work-
shop will be at the Coastal
tBranch Library and the pur-
pose is to educate the public
on how to change any inap-
propriate lighting on
beachfront properties.
According to Lorna


Patrick of FWC, the two-hour
presentation will share infor-
mation on available grants to
help defray the cost of chang-
ing lighting that may cause
disorientation of nesting
turtles. "We will have lights
that people can take home to
make changes, and we have
teamed up with a local re-
tailer so multiple property
owners can acquire the nec-
essary type of lights at no
cost to them," she said.
Patrick said changing out the
lighting on Gulf front homes
and condominiums is "doable

and affordable, as well as be-

Patrick said the Pan-
handle is home to four types
of nesting turtles, with log-
gerhead turtles being the
predominant species in Wal-
ton County. Adjacent coun-
ties are home to green sea
turtles, leatherbacks and rid-
leys. Nesting season begins
on May 1 and continues
through the end of October.
Artificial lighting on ma-
rine turtle nesting beaches

hatchlings to find the sea
from their nest, an effect
termed hatchlingg disorien-
tation." Disorientation from
artificial lighting causes.
thousands of hatchling
deaths each year in Florida
and is a significant marine
turtle conservation problem,
according to Patrick.
Long-term monitoring of
this threat involves an an-
nual statewide effort to
gather information from dis-
orientation reports, use this
information in facilitating
light management on nesting
beaches, and research addi-
tional remedies for the
threats caused by lighting.
, There. are several ways
that beachfront property
owners can modify their
lights to prevent them from
being seen from the beach.
The FWC suggests several
solutions that may need to be
used in conjunction with one
another in order to prevent
sea turtle disorientation.
These include turning off un-
necessary lights and not us-
ing decorative lighting, such
as runner lights or the up
lighting of vegetation in ar-
eas visible from the beach.
They suggest permanently
removing, disabling or turn-
ing off fixtures that cannot be
modified in any other way.
For lights that can be repo-
sitioned, face then away
from the beach so that the
light source is no longer vis-
ible.

Materials such as alumi-
num flashing can be used as
a shield to direct light and

keep it off the beach. When
shielding lights, it is impor-
tant to make sure they are
shielded from all areas on the
beach, including from either
side and on top, and not just
from the beach directly in
front of the light. Black oven
paint may be used as a tem-
porary solution. Light sock-
ets with an exposed light
source (such as plain bulbs)
should be replaced with fix-
tures specially made to re-
cess, or the light source
should be shielded. Globe
lights or carriage lights that
scatter light in all directions
should be replaced with di-
rectional fixtures that point
down and away from the
beach. Replace lights on
poles with low profile, low-
level lamps so that the light
source and reflected light are
not visible from the beach.
Replace incandescent, fluo-
rescent, and high intensity
lighting with the lowest
wattage low-pressure so-
dium vapor lighting, or re-
place white incandescent
bulbs with the yellow "bug"
light variety of 50 watts or
less.

Plant or improve vegeta-
tion buffers such as sea
grapes and other native
beach vegetation between
the light source and the
beach to screen light from the
beach. Use shielded motion
detector lights for lighting,
and set them on the shortest
time setting. To reduce
spillover from indoor light-
ing, move light fixtures away
from windows, and apply
window tint to windows that
meet the 45 percent inside-
to-outside transmittance
standards for tinted glass.
This will have the added ben-
efit of saving on air condition-
ing costs. Alternately, the use
of window blinds or curtains
will shield interior lights
from the beach.

The FWC website also of-
fers a few other tips to help
the turtles during the incu-


bation and hatching season.
This includes removing
beach furniture from the
beach each night. Marine
turtles prefer to nest on the
mid to upper beach to protect
the nest from high tide. Fur-
niture left on the beach at
night can prevent nesting-

turtles from reaching the up-
per beach. -If furniture can-
not be removed each night,
it should be stacked to mini-
mize interference with the
nesting or hatching turtles,
such as arranging the furni-
ture with the shortest edge
facing the shoreline.

Correction:

Contrary to comments attributed to Gulf Trace home-
owner Lee Perry in the "Beach Breeze" article 'What to Do
About Seawalls," Perry states that he is "100 percent in fa-
vor" of homeowners who have put in coastal armoring being
required to keep their armoring covered with sand. Perry
said he had to spend $100,000 for sand to shore up around
his home after Hurricane Dennis and hopes not to do that
again. However, he said he believes that seawalls and other
armoring will reduce future sand costs for him and other
property owners to $5,000-10,000 per year or less, because

SHADED BEDS SUCH AS this present special challenges to the gardener (Photo by Jef-
frey Powell)




Green Thumb Garden Club


discuss shady doings


MS. GWEN WRIGHT'S first-graders pose with the Butler bear, decked out with blue
recycling bags. The students at Butler Elementary's 38 classrooms all participated in recy-
cling and environmental awareness projects as part of the school's April 20 Earth Day cel-
ebration.


By JEFFREY POWELL
The Green Thumb Garden
Clubs (GTGC) regular
monthly meeting recently
gave the club an opportunity
to discus the challenges of
gardening in shaded and par-
tial sunlight areas. On hand
to help the club better under-
stand the intricacies of
shaded gardening was guest
speaker and Horticulture
Agent Escambia Extension/
University of Florida repre-
sentative Beth Bolles.
Bolles pointed out that
many yards and gardens are
experiencing more shade re-
cently because there was no
tropical activity in our area
last year, allowing trees to fill
in from previous storms. She
also contends t.ht. even
plants intended for full sun
can thrive in partial shade
due to the extreme heat of
the regions summers.
"Having plants in the
shade can provide a whole
new dimension to garden-
ing," Bolles said. "Selectively
prune trees to allow small
amounts of light to reach the
ground."


A few of the plant types
that Bolles suggested using
were Japanese and butterfly
maples along with witch Ha-
zel, Florida anise, red buck-
eye and many varieties of
fern.
"Today's program was of
excellent quality," said
GTGC President Margaret
Schmidt. "Beth is an excel-
lent resource for. our organi-
zation. She has a lot of ideas
we can incorporate into our
gardens."
"I am happy to come and
address a group as interested
in gardening as this one,"
Bolles said.
In other business, the
club announced their 'Ameri-
can Pride Landscape Compe-
tition.' The purpose of this
competition is to recognize
community residents and lo-
cal businesses in design and
creative landscapes that are
attractive and aesthetically
pleasing, reflecting the en-
chantment and beauty of
south Walton. Nominations
must be received by April 27,
2007. For more information,
contact Ellen at 267-0417 or


Carolyn at 267-1462.

low and must be filed (received by the
clerk) in the Office of General Coun-
sel of the Department at 3900 Com-
monwealth Boulevard, Mail Station
35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000.

Because the administrative hear-
ing process is designed to redeter-
mine final agency action on the appli-
cation, the filing of a petition for an ad-
ministrative hearing may result in a
modification of the permit and lease,
or even a denial of the application. Ac-
cordingly, the applicant is advised not
to commence, construction or other
activities under this permit/lease until
the deadlines below for filing a peti-
tion for an administrative hearing, or
request for an extension of time have
expired.

Under rule 62-110.1,06(4) of the
Florida Administrative Code, a person
whose substantial interests are af-
fected by the Department's action may
also request an extension of time to
file a petition for an administrative
,hearing. The Department may, for
good cause shown, grant the request
for an extension of time. Requests for
extension of time must be filed with
the Office of General Counsel of the
Department at 3900 Commonwealth
Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahas-
see, Florida 32399-3000, before the
applicable deadline. A timely request
for extension of time shall toll the run-
ning time period for filing a petition until
the request is acted upon. If a request
is filed late, the Department may still
grant it upon a motion by the request-
ing party showing that the failure to
file a request for an extension of time
before the deadline was the result of
excusable neglect.
In the event that a timely and suf-
ficient petition for an administrative
hearing is filed, other persons whose
substantial interests will be affected
by the outcome of the administrative
process have the right to petition to
intervene in the proceeding. Interven-
tion will be only at the discretion of the
presiding officer upon the filing of a
motion in compliance with rule 28-
106.205 of the Florida Administrative
Code.

In accordance with rules 28-
106.111(2) and 62-110.106(3) (a) (4),
petitions for an administrative hearing
by the applicant must be filed within
21 days of receipt of this written no-
tice. Petitions filed by any persons
other than the applicant, and other
than those entitled to written notice
under section 120.60(3) of the Florida
Statutes, must be filed within 21 days
of publication of the notice or within
21 days of such notice, regardless of
the date of publication.

Under section 120.60(3) of the
Florida Statutes, however, any person
who has asked the Department for no-
tice of agency action may file a peti-
tion within 21 days of such notice, re-
gardless of the date of publication.

The petitioner shall mail a copy of
the petition to the applicant at the ad-
dress indicated above at the time of
filing. The failure of any person to file.
a petition for an administrative hear-
ing or pursue mediation as provided
below within the appropriate time pe-
riod shall constitute a waiver of those
rights.

REVIEW

the Florida Supreme Court,
it is uncertain what addi-
tional requirements might be
necessary for a local govern-
ment to proceed with a beach
restoration project, already a
time-consuming and expen-
sive undertaking. Possibili-
ties might include eminent
domain proceedings or mon-
etary compensation to lot
owners in project areas to re-
imburse them for property
"taken."
Attorney Scott Makar, ar-
guing for the local govern-
ments, countered that ripar-
ian owners possess a
"bundle" of rights, including
ingress and egress to the


FROM FRONT

water, fishing, and others. By
law, these rights are pre-
served when the ECL is set.
The right to accretion may
in fact be moot, he stated,
since the beach is likely to
recede rather, than accrete. If,
however, the right to accre-
tion does exist and is re-
moved in the interest of the
public, "destruction of one
string of the bundle (of
rights) is not a taking," he
contended.
"They don't lose their
property," Makar argued.
It is expected that the jus-
tices will require a minimum
of several months to reach a
decision on the matter.
