Muck, weeds and stumps


FWC answer


questions


about Juniper


Lake drawdown


By REID TUCKER
Last Thursday evening,
April 26, the Juniper Lake
Conservancy (JLC) held an
open-house-style meeting at
the DeFuniak Springs Com-
munity Center. The chief
goal of the meeting was to
educate the public, as well as
members of the Conservancy,
as to the state of things re-
garding the drawdown
project currently underway
at the lake.
Suffice it to say, right now


"It didn't get to be


Clark Whitney said of the
meeting, "The goal here is to
get information out to the
public. We're addressing the
long-term health of the lake."
Whitney explained that his
organization is merely a par-
ticipatory member of the
meeting, with the Fish and
Wildlife Commission (FWC)
serving as host.
"People begin to worry,"
Whitney said, "When they see
the lake, and this meeting


in this kind of shape


Juniper Lake doesn't look
like much. The water level is
down seven feet from normal
and things are looking
mucky on the lake bottom: in
places it's up to 10 feet thick.
The drawdown project is
being undertaken specifi-
cally for that reason: get the
water level down, put a dent
in the encroaching weeds,
keep the fish population un-
der control, and control the
buildup of the organic sedi-
ment referred to as muck.
It's quite the grocery list,
but as Florida Fish and Wild-
life Commission scientist
Bob DeMauro explains, it is
a necessary thing made more
necessary by the fact that, "It
didn't get to be in this kind
of shape overnight. It took 22
years."
There was a plethora of
questions asked to those in
charge of the various organi-
zations behind the draw-
down project. Recently-
elected president of the JLC,


gives everyone the opportu-
nity to meet with those
people in a position to do
something."
"The first question people
ask me is, 'When is the lake'
going to be full?'" DeMauro
said. Given adequate rain-
fall, the lake should fill up in
9-12 months, he explained.
In the event of a prolonged
period without rainfall, "Who
knows how long it could
take?" he said. However, not
to be misunderstood,
DeMauro added that it would
be "very beneficial if we could
draw 'down the lake two to
three feet in two to three
years." This explanation
didn't-. satisfy all in
attendance. DeMauro says
that a good deal of those who
disagree or disagreed in the
past simply didn't under-
stand the hazards of letting
the. man-made lake go so long
between drawdowns. "Ide-

Cycle store approved for extra signs


By DOTTY NIST
A Freeport business was
successful in obtaining a
variance to leave five signs
on its front facade, two more
than provided for in the Wal-
ton County Land Develop-
ment Code.
Walton County Code En-
forcement had directed Dis-
tinctive Cycles owner Jerry
Byrd to either remove two of
the signs on the front of his


business or seek a variance
from the code.
In business since January
2003, Distinctive Cycles is lo-
cated on U.S. 331 about 3 1/
2 miles south of Hwy. 20. The
business deals in motor-
cycles, ATVs, watercraft, and
similar products.
According to staff testi-
mony at a the April 26 meet-
ing of the Walton County
Zoning Board of Adjust-


ments, additional signs had
been installed at the busi-
ness in addition to those that
were part of the development
order, some with sign per-
mits and some without.
The number of signs on
the two sides of the business
did not exceed the number al-
lowed by code, since three are
allowed on each side. How-
ever, on the front, five signs
had been put up where the

decision of the Walton County Zoning Board of Adjustments. (Photo by Jeffrey Powell)


code provided for only three.
Two of the signs on the front
facade are duplicates and the
other displays the business
name.
Byrd and his attorney
George Ralph Miller made a
persuasive argument that
the business owner has
agreements with a number of
wholesalers whose, products
the business carries that re-
quire him to display their
names and logos on his build-
ing.
Failure to do so would vio-
late Byrd's franchise agree-
ments, Miller told the Zoning
Board of Adjustments mem-
bers, and "he loses their busi-
ness."
Residents within 300 feet
of the business had been no-
tified of the request for a
variance, and no one had op-
posed the request.
Pat Blackshear, county
planning and development
services director, commented
that county code does not ad-
dress businesses like this
with multiple franchises. She
compared it with a single car
dealership selling, for ex-
ample, Mercedes, Toyotas
and BMWs.
"I feel they have a unique


situation that's not really
covered in the code," she said.
Byrd said he would be sat-,
isfied with the number of
signs he has on his business:
"right now" and would not:
want to put up more even if
he gets franchises with addi-:
tional wholesalers.
Board member Ken Vogel
was concerned about two of,
the front facade signs being,
duplicates. He pointed out
that if one of each were re-
moved, no variance would be
necessary.
However, other board
members countered that du-
plicating the signs on either
side of the building front pro-
vided an architectural bal-
ance.
Board member Mike
D'Autilia was worried that a
shoe store, for example, could
come in and make a similar
argument that a sign was
necessary for each shoe line
that the store carried.
"They could have 85 fran-
chises," he suggested.
Board Chairman Joe
Johnson countered that each
case coming before the board
is an individual one and does

OPEN FOR BUSINESS, new Walton County jail north of DeFuniak Springs.




New jail open



and operational


The new Walton County
jail is located at 796 Triple G
Road, in DeFuniak Springs.
Visitors should go north on
State Road, 83 or North 9th
Street in DeFuniak Springs,
turn right on County Road
1883, then right on Triple G
Road to reach the jail. The
Department of Corrections
can be reached at (850) 892-
8334.
The new jail is now in full
operation with the transfer of
209 inmates and detainees
last Saturday morning. Five
busloads of prisoners made
the trip without incident
from the old jail to the new
facility. Corrections facility


director Maj. Danny
Glidewell stated "All the cor-
rections officers and staff
performed exceptionally.
With their diligence and hard
work, the move was as
smooth as possible." An im-
mediate enhancement in jail
services in Waltoh County is
visitation. Prisoners could
only be visited by very few
family members and pastors
at the old jail because of
space and staffing con-
straints. The new jail tech-
nology allows for much more.
All visits will be done
through a video screen with
the prisoner remaining in the
housing cell pod. The new


facility has 28 video stations
for visitation of prisoners by
their families, with two sta-
tions in each cell unit.

Children will also be al-
lowed in the visitation area.
Visiting hours are from 8
a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Prisoners
whose last names begin with
A to M may be visited on
Monday. Wednesday, or Fri-
day. Those whose names be-
gin with N to Z may pres-
ently be visited on Tuesday
or Thursday. Saturday will
be added in the near future.
Sunday visitation is reserved
for those who have attained
trustee status.

Sally, you don't wait until it
gets like this," DeMauro said.
The problem arises from
the fact that its been some-
where in the neighborhood of
22 years since a drawdown
like this was done, and, as
luck would have it, no sooner
was the water level dropped
than a drought ensued. It
took two years for the lake to
return to normal, and this is
,. precisely what property own-
ers fear. DeMauro explained

natural fluctuations" and
that in the case of man-made
lakes, as so many in this area
are, those responsible for
them must try to mimic these
natural fluctuations as
nearly as possible, which
means, in this case, a major
drawdown every five to seven
years.
As previously mentioned,

Each request would be
judged on its own merit,
Johnson explained.
In a 5-1 vote, the board
members approved the vari-
ance to allow the two addi-

the two signs may be

opment of additional organic
sediment in which the weeds
thrive. Despite the efforts
and intentions of the parties
responsible for the draw-
down, primarily the Florida
Department of Environmen-
tal Protection (DEP) and
FWC, DeMauro said, "This
one drawdown will help, but
it won't be like it was right
away."

By exposing the muck and
weeds to the open air for the
duration of the winter, the
DEP and FWC hoped that
this would go a long way to-
wards getting these nui-'
sances under control, and it
will, partially. The remainder
of the responsibility is on
DEP, DeMauro said. After
the lake begins to refill, and
as of late February it is tech-
nically refilling, DEP will de-
scend on the weeds with fish-
safe herbicides. DeMauro
said that this procedure
"should be done regularly,
must be done constantly.
"In the most general of
terms, the project is expected
to cost around half a million
.dollars, which includes
$200,000 for the water-con-
trol system and $150,000 for
all engineering costs. The
money comes, for the most
part, from FWC's lake resto-
ration program coffers. This
is funded in part by dock
stamps.
DeMauro said that "the
lake needs to be on a regular
maintenance schedule to
keep the vegetation under
control. Over time, this will.
help bring back the lake." He

WC honors Purple Heart Medal recipients


Walton County will dedi-
cate a memorial to Purple
Heart medal recipients on
the grounds of the South
Walton Courthouse Annex in
Santa Rosa Beach on Thurs-
day, May 24.
The Purple Heart is the
oldest military decoration in
present use. It was initially
created as the Badge of Mili-
tary Merit by General
George Washington.
The Purple Heart was the
first American service award
or decoration made available
to the common soldier. It is
specifically awarded to any
member of the United States
Armed Services wounded or
killed in combat with a de-
clared enemy of the United
States.
Working with Chapter 566
of the Military Order of the
Purple Heart who arranged
for the monument, Walton
County will honor Purple
Heart recipients and their
families for their heroism
and self-sacrifice. Inclusion
of the Purple Heart Monu-
ment as a permanent fixture
at the South Walton Court-
house Annex is a fitting trib-
ute to these brave men and

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


ASSISTANT EDITOR'S COMMENT

By BRUCE COLLIER


Now let's make


it interesting


On Tuesday, I joined a group
of invitees to Walton Middle
School (WMS). We convened
at around 7:30 a.m. in the me-
dia center. Coffee, juice, and
assorted sweets were pro-
vided us.
Attendees included two
judges, several doctors, law-
yers, business owners, elected
officials, and retirees. The
food wasn't entirely free. We
had to sing for our breakfast.
WMS Principal Russell
Hughes, and the WMS Read-
ing Leadership Team Dr.
Dale Yount, Elicia Grey,
Leslie Hulion, Cindy Jackson,
Glenda Paul-Ales, Pam Dar-
ling, Cynthia Goodson, Kip
Baker, and Ginny McCall,
had asked us to come and
read to the students.
What we read was up to us,
provided it was a "favorite
poem, selection from a book,
or something you have writ-
ten." In the hands of many of
my fellow readers I saw
antholologies, children's
books with worn binding and'
faded colors, new works, and
handwritten pieces. I brought
a copy of a collection by Jules
Verne, from which I read an
excerpt from "Around the
World in 80 Days."
The kids in my group were
seventh-graders. Some of
them had heard of the book,
if only from the Jackie Chan
movie it was made into in
2004. Others knew of Verne's
creations from Walt Disney's
"20,000 Leagues Under the
Sea," or from "The League of
Extraordinary Gentlemen."
As I read, I recalled that I
was about these kids' age
when I first met Phileas Fogg,
the eccentric Englishman
who bets half his fortune that
he can travel the globe in 80
days. The book was written in
1872, when such a timetable
was practically impossible.
When I had finished, we
talked a little. They asked me
what kind of grades I got in
school. I told them I had been
good in history, English, and
social studies, but not in math
and science. This was greeted
with a chorus of sympathetic
moans and frank observa-
tions about these subjects.
No one asked me for it, but
I felt I had some advice for


Happy


them. Besides, we were in a
classroom, where young
people must expect to get
talked at by wise elders.
"I was acting in a play
once," I told them, "and I
kept rushing through this
one part. When the director
asked me why, I told him I
didn't like it 'because it
wasn't interesting."He said,
'Let's find a way to make it
interesting, so you will like
it.'"
A lot of the kids nodded
their heads. The teacher
asked me if I'd like to come
back some time and help
work on some projects.
I said yes, and meant it.
So, if Ms. Paul-Ales and her
class are reading this, you
know where to find me.
Please understand that I
am not casting myself as the
star of one of those "To Sir
With Love" moments, when
the heavens open and the
kids all get it. I was a nov-
elty. Ms. Paul-Ales and her
colleagues do this every
working day, and they don't
get cookies first, either.
However, I did tell the stu-
dents that most of the remu-
nerative work I've ever done
has been based on reading,
writing, and understanding
the writing of others.
And it all started when I
was a pre-schooler. My sis-
ter Debbie taught me to
read, using the Sunday com-
ics. One day, Debbie marched
me into the living room
where my parents were
seated, and announced that
I could now read. Onstage
for the first time, I rendered
"Nancy & Sluggo" to perhaps
the most appreciative audi-
ence I will ever face. Debbie
is now a schoolteacher,
thank goodness.
I think that WMS, and
any other school that's ob-
serving Literacy Week, is on
to something. Making it in-
teresting may not be the sil-
ver bullet, but I suspect it's
a silver key to a tricky edu-
cational lock. If we all can
just figure out how to make
it interesting not easy, not

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


Editor:
What a beautiful day and beautiful people! I have been
deeply touched at all that participated in our DeFuniak
Springs Relay for Life. People loving one another, helping
one another and being friends was a sight to behold and words
could never express what I felt.
I want to thank and uplift all those that participated in
this event. Thank- you just does not seem to be a big enough
word. This was a community effort and so many were in-
volved and I must say Job Well Done. There were many
long hours people gave of themselves and it was the best
Relay for Life I have ever seen.
I want to truly thank Barbara Wiezycki, she is a truly
special person and has a family that supports her and this
cause. She worked very hard, even through some tough op-
position here and there. Her heart is pure and deeply de-
voted to the Relay for Life program. I met Barbara for the
first time at last years Relay. She has such a sweet and
humble spirit about her and it was like we had been friends
forever. She shows the love Jesus talks about uncondi-
tional.
I found a card one day that has such awesome words,
when I read it I said, that is what my husband was. He passed
away in 2004 from pancreatic cancer, but I now extend those
words also to Barbara and all the volunteers of the Relay for
Life: "It only takes one smile to offer welcome and blessed
be the person who will share it, it only takes one moment to
be helpful and blessed be the person who will spare it, it
only takes one joy to lift a spirit and blessed be the persofi
who will give it, it only takes one life to make a difference,
and blessed be the person who will live it.1" .1
"As the word of God says in 1 Peter 4:8-10 "And above all
things have fervent love for one another, for love will cover a
multitude of sins. Be hospitable to one another without grum-
bling. As each one has received a gift, minister it to one
another, as good stewards of.the manifold grace of God." All
this helps lift the sorrow and suffering off the victims of can-
cer.
Our business was proud and honored to be a sponsor for
this year's Relay. But, the honor should go to everyone who
worked so hard at making this Relay such a success.
.My prayers are with the victims of cancer and for the fami-
lies who have lost a loved one from this dreadful disease.
One day we will be saying this year's theme, "Once Upon A
Cure."
I remain deeply grateful,
Kathy McCormick

Editor,
The claim by some, most notably the white house crew,
that democrats advocate "abandoning" U.S. troops in Iraq is
ridiculous. Just like the former "cut and run" accusation, it
is propaganda that only the most gullible will swallow.
When and if U.S. troops leave that bleeding and bludgeoned
country, they will withdrawal in-an orderly, pre-planned man-
ner with adequate air cover and Naval support. It won't be a
replay of Dunkirk in WWII. Those of all parties, Democrats,
Republicans, Independents, and whatever, will be evaluated!
Bush attacked Iraq and stepped in a bucket of dung, where
he has been since. That is fitting, considering false charges
of weapons of mass destruction. The Constitution, in which
Bush in particular, and the feds in general, routinely ignore,
gives Congress the power to go to war, not the president.
Bush, for the most of his time in office, has largely ignored
Congress or bullied its members into supporting him. He
has operated much'like a king. He has so ignored the south-
ern border of the U.S. that the stream of illegals have be-
come a stampede. Such should be enough to impeach him-
the failure to enforce the law.
He has amassed on enormous national debt while pros-
ecuting this war, while squeezing on domestic spending. He
has generally made a mess of federal government.
The bill he has promised to veto provides funds for the
war, but it also has domestic spending, and provisions to wind
down that war, and that is what prompted the veto threat.
If he does veto the bill, it will be his willful act that cuts off
funding. He has the last word, which will decide whether
more funding is provided.
In any case, "contingency plans," as they are called, have
no doubt been made to withdraw the military in an orderly
fashion, so such phrases as "abandoning the troops," "cut and
run," etc. is pure bologna that only the truly ignorant will
buy.
The U.S. Constitution is the basis of all law. No law can be
superior to the Constitution. But this document has been so
battered and subverted in the era that advocated a "living
and evolving" document and "interpreted" and "reinterpreted"
to bring it in line.
So the Constitution no longer makes much difference. It is
opinion, and opinion only, of lawyers who somehow got el-
evated to "justices.",
The federal government no longer exists. It has been legis-
lated and "interpreted" out of existence. Yes, the empty shell
is still around, but a national government has replaced it.
States are powerless. All power that is worth having has been
moved to Washington.
Sincerely,
Charles F. Adams
North Walton County


Editor:
"Ignorance without knowledge; uninformed; resulting
from want of knowledge." This definition is derived from
Webster's Dictionary. However, this mandate also refers to
the individuals of the Paxton community that make false
accusations regarding the Paxton Bobcat profile.
Before diving into the realms of the actual truths of this
matter, may I add that the only way to acquire the truth is to
correspond with the source of the affair. And who might these
authorities be, you ask? The answer to this rather simplistic
question is Coach Laurie Gilbert (softball), Coach Jeff Brad-
ley (baseball), and Mike Anderson (principal), respectively.
If the information you receive is not from one of these per-
sons, your so-called "facts" are slightly misconstrued.
The entire concept of gossip is so juvenile, I can not believe
this has to be directed toward mature adults. For people to
raise such a commotion over something as minuscule as the
mascot of a high school is beyond me. From this, I presume
that if the grass beneath your very feet turned purple, you
would find some way to make it a mockery, only to blame
this occurrence on someone else. How stupid does this sound;
grass turning purple? Then how ridiculous is it to make such
a satire over a logo?
This entire issue boils down to one attribute: kids. If you
are truly for the betterment of your children and/or the chil-
dren of this community, you would care less about an irrel-
evant cat face. Not only does this entire matter make you
appear clueless, but also selfish. Stop trying to relive your
-high school days and try being the adult for a change. Ifyou'
'aren't careful, you might find yourself in a constant stdtee of
happiness.
So, now that you are no longer ignorant, because you have
read this endeavor and know the means of this situation, if
you choose not to comply, then you have become one foolish
human being.

Editor:
I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take it anymore!
I would like to know why Bay County is cracking down on
illegal aliens and Walton County is doing nothing about this
problem. There area many of our legal citizens that do con-
struction work on CR-30A and that area. They can not work
a lot of times, because there is no work. The illegal aliens are
taking the construction jobs. The illegal aliens under-bid con-
tractors and then our own people can't get work to provide
for their families. We already pay taxes to help take care of
the illegal aliens, so then we let them come and take our jobs
away also!
Our American people can't even support their own fami-
lies, but the illegal aliens come and get assistance for hous-
ing, food stamps, hospitals, jails and child care. What else
should we give them as legal citizens that we, ourselves, can't
get in America?
Most of them have no driver license, no green card and no
social security card. You see the same names in the paper
each week for driving without a license. Obviously, there is
nothing being done about this problem,
I feel our county and our country need to take care of this
matter because the American people are going to be jobless,
homeless and hungry very soon., If we don't wake up as
Americans and citizens of the the United Sates of America,
we are going to lose the freedoms that we have today. We
commend you, Don Brown, for bringing the illegal alien is-
sue to the attention of the citizens of Walton County and the
state of Florida.
Concerned legal citizens

Editor:
The National Day of Prayer will be Thursday, May 3,2007.
I want to encourage and challenge all the believers in the
Lord Jesus Christ throughout this community, to come to
the Lakeyard here in DeFuniak Springs, Thursday at 5 p.m
for a brief, but very important prayer. Old and young will be
hand-in-hand around the lake to pray for our city, county,
our state and our nation.
I'm sure many of God's people thought it was silly when
Joshua led them in a march around Jericho. Aren't you glad
they did it?
When Gideon faced insurmountable odds against the
Midianites, and with the blowing of trumpets and the break-
ing of pitchers in unity, they put their enemies to flight. Aren't
you glad they cooperated?
When King Jehoshaphat and the families of Judah obeyed
God by praying, fasting, and singing praise, then saw a mi-
raculous victory over the Moabites and Ammonites, without
even lifting a sword. Aren't' you glad they were willing to
look silly?

"What Is A Mother?"
A mother is someone who cares about you.
She's someone you could always run to as a child.
She's someone you can always turn to as you grow.
Whatever the situation, a mother seems to know just what you need.
And whatever the need she's willing to help,
ready to listen, able to understand.
She's someone who encourages you to be all you can be -
Yet accepts you just as you are.
She's a mender of hearts.
A designer of beautiful dreams.
Weaving a home from the fabric of life, keeping it snug at the seams.
A mother is someone who will always have a special place
in your heart and your life.

Walton Middle


School hosts


guest readers


By BRUCE COLLIER
Tuesday saw a crowd of
specially-invited guests de-
scend on Walton Middle
School (WMS). Principal
Russel Hughes and director
of reading Dr. Dale Yount
joined with faculty and stu-
dents to welcome guest read-
ers into classrooms.
The event was part of
"Surfing into Summer Read-
ing," a week of special activi-
ties devoted to promoting lit-
eracy and excellence in read-
ing among WMS students.
The week of April 30- May 4
has been designated as Lit-
eracy Week.
Readers were drawn from
the community, and included
journalists, teachers, doctors,
lawyers, judges, and busi-
ness people. Each was asked
to read an excerpt from a fa-
vorite book, poem, or short
story. Readers also spoke on


the importance of literacy in
their lives and careers. The
brief sessions closed with
questions from the students.,
Other scheduled events
include a classroom door
decorating contest, judged by
the students.
Wednesday was "Sun,
Shades, Shirt and Shorts
Day," with games, snow
cones, and Beach Boys mu-
sic.
On Thursday, Walton
High School sent its own
guest readers to read from
short stories.
Friday will end the week
with with "Flipped Over
Reading." The students, who
may wear flip-flops to school,
will vote on a "school-wide
book."
WMS teachers will also
read to their students from a
favorite book, poem, or short
story.

pounds of corrosives,92 bat-
teries, 60 gallons of anti-

uid mercury.
According to Walton

Rusty Floyd, "this was one of
our biggest efforts yet."
In a continuing effort to
clean up, Walton County will
hold a community cleanup
day, in the ChoctaW Beach
community, on SR-20, on Sat-
urday, May 19.


Dumpsters, material
hand-ling equipment, ;and
personnel will be available at

accept white goods, .old ap-
pliances, mattresses, tires,
yard debris, and other mate-
rials, that normally must be
carried to the landfill by
homeowners. A recycling
trailer will also be available


to accept newsprint, glass,
and aluminum.
This service is available to
Walton County residents at
no cost.

The next Hazardous Mate-
rials Amnesty Day will be

smiles on their face guaran-
teed.

The Florida Chautauqua
Inc. is a 501-C3 non profit

the young people of this area
to participate in and enjoy
the performing arts.


Governor Charlie Crist to-
day signed into law House
Bill 211 establishing a sales
tax holiday June 1 12,. for
hurricane preparedness
items.
"I urge all Floridians to
take advantage of the Hurri-
cane Preparedness Sales Tax
Holiday so that every person
is prepared for the possibil-
ity of a storm," said Gover-
nor Crist. "We have learned
from experience that pre-
pared residents and commu-
nities are key to surviving
and recovering from hurri-
canes or other natural disas-
ters."
Legislative sponsors Sena-
tor Carey Baker (R-Eustis)
and Representative Peter
Nehr (R-Tarpon Springs) and
Department of Emergency
Management Director Craig
Fugate joined the Governor
for the bill signing. Governor
Crist thanked the Legisla-
ture and urged all Floridians
to prepare for the 2007 Hur-
ricane Season by taking ad-
vantage of the third annual
sales tax holiday. The holiday
is expected to save Floridians


almost $25 million in sales
taxes.
"As public awareness of
this tax holiday continues to
grow, we are encouraging
Florida retailers to prepare
for even greater demand
than last year," said Gover-
nor Crist. "While we hope for
a quiet hurricane season, the
tax holiday will help give Flo-
ridians the opportunity to be
prepared for any possibility."
Florida Retail Federation
officials and major retailers
are helping inform Florid-
ians about the tax holiday in
order to promote a culture of
preparedness. Representa-
tives from Lowe's, Home De-
pot, Publix and Winn Dixie
attended the bill signing.
"Recent history shows us
that hurricanes can impact
every Floridian," said Direc-
tor. Craig Fugate of the
Florida Division of Emer-
gency Management. "I chal-
lenge all residents to get a
plan and prepare now."
Governor Crist encouraged
all Floridians to update their
disaster plans and to use the
tax holiday during the first


12 days of June as an oppor-
tunity to restock their disas-
ter supply kits.
Chris Floyd, of the Ameri-
can Red Cross attended the
bill signing and displayed ex-
amples of tax exempt items.
Examples of items that will
be exempt during the sales
tax holiday are Flashlights
and other portable, self-pow-
ered light sources $20 or,
portable radios, two-way ra-
dios and weather-band ra-
dios $75 or less, Tarps $50
or less, gas or diesel fuel con-
tainers $25 or less, Batter-
ies $30 or less (AAA, AA, C
and D cell, and 6 and 9 volt
batteries), Non-electrical
food storage coolers $30 or
less, Portable generators -
$1,000 or less, carbon mon-
oxide detectors $75 or less,
Storm shutter devices $200
or less.

National Laboratory


Professionals Week


observed at Healthmark


Regional Medical Center


Many health problems be-
gin slowly, often without vis-
ible symptoms. Laboratory
tests can discover changes in
blood and other body fluids,
which help physicians with
early detection, diagnosis,
and treatment of disease.
Laboratory tests now avail-
able number in the thou-
sands, and can expose prob-
lems in every body system.
Because laboratory testing
has become so beneficial to
medical care, a visit to the
doctor is seldoinit9nplete
without a trip to the' labora-
tory. Evteryine vwho has-
4iade thtj~oiurney has likely
met the lab's phlebotomist
who draws the blood
samples, but what happens
next to all of those tubes of
blood?
Thoughts of a laboratory
often conjure visions of mi-
croscopes, but very little of
the testing done in today's
laboratory actually involves
the use of a microscope. Tech-
nological developments have
brought a wide array of very
sophisticated, automated in-
struments to the lab. These
advances have increased the
speed, accuracy, and preci-
sion of laboratory testing.
The responsibilities of the
laboratory professionals who
analyze the specimens have
also expanded with the im-
proved technology. These
professionals must program


and maintain the equipment.
Each must also have a
working knowledge of the
basis, background, and clini-
cal significance of each test
performed, as well as an un-
derstanding of possible inter-
ferences and correlations to
other indicators.
Stringent government
rules and personnel stan-
dards ensure testing accu-
racy. Regulations require
quality control samples to be
tested and evaluated fre-
quently. For every test per-
formed in a Florida labora-
S-toy, a series of proficiency
samples must be tested three
times each year and the re-
sults graded by an indepen-
dent evaluator. Failures lead
to cessation of testing until
a reinstatement process is
completed.
Although the community is
small, Walton County,
through Healthmark Re-
gional medical Center, is for-
tunate to have a modern, ex-
ceptionally well-equipped,
fully computerized clinical
laboratory.
Each year a national labo-
ratory professional magazine
evaluates various classifica-
tions of laboratory equip-
ment.
This year, of the five cat-
egories that pertain to
Healthmark's lab, four major
instruments used in the labo-
ratory were selected at "Top

Underage drinking


still a dilemma


By KRISTIE WALIZER
COPE Center prevention
counselor
A Florida Youth Substance
Abuse survey reported that
nearly 60 percent of youth in
Walton County have used al-
cohol in their lifetime. Un-
derage drinking is such a
widespread problem across
the United States that last
month the surgeon general
launched a "Call to Action to
Prevent and Reduce Under-
age Drinking" across the
country.
Youth whomay be experi-
menting with alcohol often
become temperamental, irri-
table, and defensive.
Attendance or grades de-
crease at school or they are
disciplined at school and act
more rebellious.
A change in friends or a
sudden lack of interest in
things they used to enjoy can
also be a sign.


Physically, slurred speech,
bloodshot eyes, poor concen-
tration, poor memory and co-
ordination, are also warning
signs of problems.
Underage drinking can
have many consequences for

( LETTER TO THE EDITOR)

Editor:
The World Conservation Union (IUCN) has just updated
the short-fin mako shark from 'near threatened' in 2000 to
'vulnerable' status today. The tragic senseless killing of the
magnificent 12.5 foot, 1,063-pound short-fin mako shark
between Pensacola and Navarre on April 18, 2007 was a fe-
male anywhere between 20 and 30 years old.
She was a marvel of nature; beautiful and sleek, cobalt
blue in color. The world's fastest shark, swimming over 35
mph, she could make mighty leaps up to 15 feet out of the
water. Her only predator was mian.
The female mako does not reproduce until the age of 7 to
12 years of age. Then it has a 15- to 18-month gestation
period. The average litter of pups is around 10. It takes an-
other 18 months before the female will reproduce again. So,
the female mako has a slow reproductive rate and at the
current rate of slaughter by humans, it is in decline. This
tragedy has been further enhanced by the fact that the
shortfin mako has just been added to the World Conserva-
tion Union's (IUCN) list of species threatened worldwide with
extinction. Fish Physiologist Jeffrey Graham who is work-
ing with National Oceanic (NOAA) stated, "We could be mov-
ing toward a time when the adult makos become very rare
and the population crashes."
Brutal modern fishing practices such as long-lining, gill
netting, shark finning and recreational fishing are decimat-
ing shark populations around the globe. Every year, 100
million sharks are killed by people.
The role of sharks in maintaining the ecological balance of
the oceans is critical. As top predators and scavengers, they
are very important in maintaining the balance of the ma-
rine ecosystem, by removing weak, old and sick animals,
thus keeping prey populations in check and healthy.
It is astounding that fishermen whose livelihoods depend
on the ocean would not be interested in conservation man-
agement of the fish in the ocean. After all, do they want jel-
lyfish and slime? Jellyfish and slime are what remains when
you over-fish and destroy vital ecosystems.
The oceans belong to all of us. Everyone should be con-
cerned about.what is happening to the marine ecosystems.
The April 2007 issue of "National Geographic" magazine has
an extensive report on the global fish crisis. Write your Con-
gress members and demand more funding for shark research
so sharks can be better protected in the future. Demand more
protection for our oceans!
Thanks to the Destin Fishing and History Museum for
banning shark tournaments.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, MAY 3, 2007


2006 Annual Drinking Water Quality Report of the Town of Paxton

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 ~nd
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 2 wells.' The wells draw from the Floridan Aquifer." Because of the
excellent quality of our water, the only treatment required is chlorine for dichsirfe-rion purposes.
In 2004 the Department of Environmental Protection performed a Source Water Assessment on our system.' The
assessment was conducted to provide information about any potential sources of contamination in the vicinity of our
wells." There is one potential source of contamination identified for this system with a moderate susceptibility level.:'.
The assessment results are available on the FDEP Source Water Assessment and Protection Program. website at'
www.dep.state.fl.us/swapp or they can be obtained from Town of Paxton (850)
834-2176.
If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact Judy Williams Billigr-
Clerk at (850) 834-2716. We encourage our valued customers to be informed about their water utility. If you want to
learn more, please attend any of our regularly scheduled meetings. They are held on second Tuesday monthly at 7:00
p.m. at Paxton Town Hall meeting room.
Town of Paxton routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws,
rules, and regulations.' Except where indicated otherwise, this report is based on the results of our monitoring for
the period of January 1 to December 31, 2006.' Data obtained before January 1, 2006, and presented in this report are
from the most recent testing done in accordance with the laws, rules, and regulations.
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 require-
ments 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 qoal or MRDLG:' The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is
no known or expected risk to health. MRDLGs to not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to control micro-
bial contaminants.
ND means not detected and indicates that the substance was not found by laboratory analysis. ...
Parts per million (pmn) or Milliqcrams. er liter (n/1l) one part by ^eighL of analyte to 1 million parts by weight of
the water sample.
Parts per billion (pob) or Microarams per liter ( c/1) one part b- eiaghr. of analyte to 1 billion parts by weigr' ff
the water sample.
Picocurie Der liter (rCi/L) measure of the radioactivity in 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 occur-
ring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of ani'-
mals 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' storm-
water runoff, and residential uses.

(D)' "-'-' Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-prod-,
ucts 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 estab-
lish 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.
In our continuing efforts to maintain a safe and dependable water supply, .it may be necessary to make improve-
ments in your water system. The costs of these improvements may be reflected in the rate structure. Pate adjust-
ments may be necessary in order to address these improvements.
We at the Town of Paxton would like you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treat-
ment process and protect our water resources." We are committed to insuring ete quality of your waterr' If you have
any questions or concerns about the information provided, please feel free to call any of the numbers listd..

( LETTER TO THE EDITOR)

Editor:
I am writing this hoping that it might do some good! I live
on Shoemaker Drive and I have called the DeFuniak Springs
Police, City Hall, and the bus garage. I can't seem to get
any help.
Every morning I leave to take my children to school and
whether I pull out of my driveway or back out, the school
buses fly right up on my bumper. The speed limit is 30 mph
and I don't think many people care. I have had three or four
people come right around me, and there are no lines on the
new pavement.
My children cross the road to go play with the neighbors'
children, with me out there right by the road, and people
don't slow down and we're standing right there. There are
two elderly ladies who come over often and we go over there.
At that age, people don't always move very fast and it wor-
ries me. They come off Walton Road and just fly by. I am fed
up with it.
I know the police department cannot sit there 24-7 and
I'm not asking them to. I am asking for help to fix this prob-
lem. We desperately need a light at the end of the road to
help get on Hwy. 90, as well.
I would just like for people to slow down in areas like this.
I was told they would get new signs (children at play) and
put the speed checker out there. It has not been done. Maybe,
I should do like my daddy use to say, throw a brick through
their window and they'll slow down. Well that's not going
to solve much. I know it would slow them down but I am not
that mean.
I just would like to know our children and elderly are save
if they choose to cross a road in their own neighborhood.

((LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Dear Editor,
South Walton County Mosquito Control District supports
the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services re-
quest for $1.2 million to replace an aging aircraft used to
provide emergency aircraft used to provide emergency state-
wide mosquito control and dog fly control in the Florida Pan-
handle. The state-owned aircraft is important for two main
reasons. It helps with the rapid control of mosquitoes after
tropical storms and hurricanes, or in the event of an out-
break of mosquito borne disease such as West Nile Virus or
St. Louis Encephalitis. The state-owned aircraft provides
the capability for rapid response to these incidents in a cost
effective manner.
Routine control of biting flies in the six county area of
'coastal northwest Florida (Gulf, Bay, Walton, Okaloosa,
:Santa Rosa and Escambia) is essential for tourist activity
i during the months of September to December. The state
plane provides extremely cost effective control relative to
costs for commercial vendors due to the heed for response
! within two hours of the occurrence of the flies on beaches.
; The present state plane is a 1941 DC-3 (66 years old).
SMaintenance of the aircraft is increasingly costly due to scar-
city of replacement parts and rotary engines which require
Frequent maintenance. Also, it is difficult to find qualified
pilots due to the age of the technology and aircraft type. The
SSouth Walton, Control District urtes'citizens to send letters
of support for tleDA0Syeqft dt for funding to Govi. Charlie
Crist in Tallahassee andl to Lewis, Longman'aridd Walker,
;P.A., 125 S. Gadsden Street, Suite 300, Tallahassee, FL.

South Walton County Control District

(LETT'ERTO THE EDITOR}

Dear Editor,
Right on, Mr. C. F. Adams! What's happening is "the good-
Sole-boy system" is alive and well. They all became Republi-
cans, but they are not. I recently noticed the blue-colored
street name signs in Juniper Lake Estates. I have discov-
)ered that they are not county-maintained roads. I've been
'complaining for several years about our non-maintained
'roads in Juniper Lake Estates. They claim they can't main-
tain them because they are only 40' wide and present day
;widths are 50'. However, they worked three of our 40' roads,
,then paved 2.5 miles and this set a precedence!
This subdivision was approved and signed by the sitting
;commissioners in 1975/76 and the regulations called for
minimum width of 40' and therefore, they are grand fathered
,in. This subdivision with over 99 lots and it had to go through
"the state for approval. They, too, approved for subdivision.
iThe name of the subdivision, street names, road widths, etc.,
were accepted by the county and the state. Our county gov-
lernment also changed the street names on three different
roads. It was never cleared with the developer or the state.
iHmm!
SI've been before the county commissioners several times
;and each time they will study the problem and nothing hap-
pens. I've written to Larry Jones many times and talked to
;him and nothing happens; I've written to Chairman Pridgen
many times and left five calls for him to return my calls and
nothing happens. I have written, called and left at least a
'dozen "please call back" messages for Scott Brannon, but he
avoids me like the plague. I guess that's why when he was
;campaigning he told me "if you vote for me, I'll get your road
,fixed!"'
SI worked in his behalf and all I hear now is silence! There
'is this strange belief that only your district commissioner
;can take action on a problem in the district you live in. That's
?nonsense! All the district commissioners are supposed to as-
sist us. The district commissioner is elected to equalize an
:even playing field. If your district commissioner ignores you,
then see another one. When I was a commissioner, I would
listen to any Walton County resident and do my utmost to
*solve their problem. Commissioner Fleet and I assisted each


pother and I assisted in District 1 and 2, 3 and 5. The
commissionerss are the body of the county government.
We can solve this problem. I'm looking for three good la-
dies for District 1,2, and 3. The only qualification is to be a
conservative independent, a conservative Democrat, a Lib-


5, zUU I
ertarian, or at least a 20-year Republican. We, the people,
need to shake up the county commission and the bureau-
cracy and barriers (insulation) that they created, need to
know they work for the people not the other way around.
Any of you ladies that might be interested, please contact
me. I'll see to it that we can put you on the fast track and get
started at the grass roots. I think we should have the first
ever all-woman county commission. I assure you we'll get
action and they know how to budget.
Our subdivision is divided into four-quarter sections. Three
of the four sections have paved main roads (2.5 miles total).
If Beethoven Circle and Tchalkovsky Circle are paved,-then
we in the fourth-quarter section will have equal paved ac-
cess. We are talking about 1.3 miles. There are 54 house-
holds in this quarter section. We have mail service, newspa-
per service, city water, an 8" water main fire protection form
Liberty and DeFuniak Springs. We have school bus service,
emergency ambulance service, telephone service, garbage


PAGE 13-A
pick up service, a new water tower and fire hydrants and
yes, potholes, washouts, and ruts galore.
I am in the process of sending our 372 letters to
homeowners and lot owners asking for their proxy to autho-
rize me to speak in their behalf in the area of road improve-
ment and have all dirt roads with homes become county-
maintained roads. What we have here is simply "Taxation
without Representation." The south end of the county gets a
lot of attention and, truthfully, they were abandoned for
many years. The iorth end of the county, north of DeFuniak
Springs, was neglected for years and now I sincerely believe
they need to do some paving. This recorded subdivision is
32 years old and this is a great location and its growing. I
am aware of three of four new homes that will be constructed
on Brahms Lane. We are rapidly growing!
Please call me, ladies, and let's go for the record!

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, MAY 3, 2007


ALEXIS WITHEY took the prize for the largest bass.

Kiwanis club 4th

annual "Take A

Kid Fishing"- 2007
By DAVID W. KING
President, Kiwan'is Club of DFS
Soon after 8:30 Saturday morning, the
DeFuniak Springs lakeyard near the pier
became a buzz of activity. Kiwanians, Key
Clubbers and other volunteers began set-
ting up for the 4th Annual Kiwanis Club


"Take A Kid Fishing" day.
There were 135 children registered for the
event, along with volunteers, parents,
grandparents and the curious. More than
250 people gathered around to get started.
Each child who registered was given a
free T-shirt from Chelco, and a free Con-
solidated ACE Hardware bucket for their
fish. The first 50 children who registered
without their own fishing pole were given
one free, courtesy of Kiwanians who are
also elected officials.
David Partridge, from "Bass-On," was on
hand with his "bass-looking" truck, and
gave away a lot of gifts and provided fish-
ing instruction. The children took turns
fishing on the pier, and the bank was lined
with eager participants.
Mayor Harold Carpenter sponsored the
"Bait Shop." Fishing bait provided by Aards
Cricket Ranch and Buddy's Bait Shop could
be purchased at a reduced price.
Walton County Health Department was
on hand to give away stuff and provide im-
portant information about mosquito con-
trol.
At noon, everyone stopped fishing to eat
lunch and participate in games. At the end
of the day, Holden Waters took away the
prize for the largest fish caught. Levi Sasser
got the prize for the most fish caught. Alexis
Withey took the prize for the largest bass,
and Colin Slaughter was given a prize for
the smallestbass.
There were 130 fish caught by the chil-
dren. At the end of the day, all of the chil-
dren who stayed for the prize presentations
were given prizes supplied by Bass Pro
Shops, Wal-Mart Super Center, Bass-On,
and Chelco.
Everyone who came went home with
something, and a great time was had by
all.
The Kiwanis Club expressed gratitude for
all of the hard work of all the volunteers,
as well as the generosity of all the spon-
sors of this event.


LEVI SASSER got the prize for the most fish caught.


HOLDEN WATERS took away the prize for the largest

By ROBIN NEWTON
The April meeting of the
open Door Community Club
of Defuniak Springs featured
special guests Rebecca
Russell and her disaster pre-
paredness team from
Americorps at OWC. Russell
is the program specialist and
team members are enrolled
in the program from January
1 through December 31.
In addition to the training
they receive at OWC, they
must each perform 1,700
hours of community service.
Their goal is to speak to 300
people over the course of the
year. In addition to the disas-
ter preparedness presenta-
tions, each team member
works approximately 50-75
hours per week doing a vari-
ety of jobs. This year, the
group has done everything
from raking yards to beach
clean-up.
Sherry Brown began a
slide show presentation with
a an explanation of disasters
and pictures from hurricanes
Opal, Frances, Jeanne and
Ivan, Which were familiar to
club members. Brown went
on to explain about torna-
does, train derailments,
chemical spills, explosions,
and the 9-11 attack on the
World Trade Center.
Kizza Lopez explained the
importance of preparing
early for any disaster. Lopez
described the need to prepare
for an "all hazards ap-
proach." That is, no matter
what type of disaster, certain
preparations remain the
same. Water (one gallon per
day per person), first-aid sup-
plies, non-perishable foods, a
manual can opener, medica-
tions, eyeglasses, flashlight,
extra batteries, and impor-
tant documents are essential
in all disaster kits at home.
Lopez encouraged families to
talk about possible disasters
and make a plan for evacua-
tion.


She said it is important to
know where to go and how to
get there before the need
arises. She reminded every-
one not to forget about fam-
ily pets. Even in times of
emergency, shelters will not
take pets, so families must
remember pet food, immuni-
zation records and a leash for
all dogsDana Maloy gave
suggestions for creating the
actual disaster kit. A tight
container, preferably one
that is easy to carry, big
enough to hold supplies for
three days will work fine. She
reminded everyone to date
all items and replace them
when necessary. Maloy dis-
cussed the importance of
having a battery-operated
radio in the kit, and a NOAA
Weather radio. A list of emer-
gency numbers and a plan for
two different meeting areas
after a disaster (families
might be separated) is very
important. The concept of a
"shelter in place" was ex-
plained to the club members,
too. If the disaster is a chemi-
cal spill or some other air-
borne hazard, it will be nec-
essary to secure one's home
to maintain the safety of the
entire faifimily. The team !de-
scribed in great detail how to
cover windows, vents, and
doors in the even of an air-
borne hazard.
The team discussed very
interesting statistics relating
to 2004 fatalities resulting
from disasters. The largest
number of fatalities were a
result of clean-up activities
(39 percent), followed by
downed power lines (27 per-
cent), stress (13 percent),
motor vehicles (12, percent)
and other (8 percent).
Wanda Jewell discussed
"recovery after the storm."
She explained the danger of
driving through standing
water or over bridges that
may have sustained damage.
She also debunked the myth

of opening the windows dur-
ing a tornado, explaining
that if the wind comes into
the house through the win-
,dows, the roof can be torn
away. Jewell also described a
recent OWC survey. While 99
percent of people in the area
believe in preparedness, only
30 percent have disaster kits
and only 40 percent stated:
-they would leave their home
during a disaster to get their
children from school.
Casey Lamar explained
the Community Emergency
Response Team (CERT) pro-
gram and how it trains citi-
zens to assist others in the
community. The training free
and once completed the par-
ticipants receive an identifi-
cation badge which will allow
them. to re-enter an area af-
ter a storm.
The business meeting por-
tion of the Open Door Club
ran smoothly. The decision
was made to divide the
money for charities evenly
between C.A.R.E. and the di-
saster preparedness team.
The donation to the team will
be used to help make disas-


, ter preparedness kits for the
elderly in the community.
Sandra Golden told the
club members about the need
for money and letters to be
sent to-our troops overseas.
The box for letters is located
inside near Dave's Music and
Nature's Health Food Store
on Baldwin Avenue.
Ruth Bjorkman an-
nounced that April being
Child Abuse Prevention
month and reminded every-
one to love and be kind to
kids yours and everyone
else's.
The next meeting will be
Thursday, May 10 at 11 a.m.
at the Best Western Cross-
roads Inn. The Open Door
Community Club welcomes
all women to come and enjoy
the fellowship of your neigh-
bors.
As Helen Keller said, "It
is my friends that have made
the story of my life. In a thou-
sand ways they have turned
my limitations into beautiful
privileges, and enabled me to
walk serene and happy in the
shadow cast by my depriva-
tion."

OWC's ,Raiders
By BRUCE COLLIER
The Okaloosa-Walton Col-
lege Jazz Ensemble, a.k.a.
the Raiders of the Lost Art,
presented a brief but packed
evening of jazz last Tuesday.
The April 24 evening con-
cert was one of several pre-
sentations given every year
by the ensemble, under the
wagging baton of Dr. Cheryl
Jones.
Ensemble members are
Rudy Applewhite on steel
drums, Billy Kernan on
drums, Scott Chandler and
Ronald M. Dents on bass,
Jake Colvin on guitar, Cody
Copeland, Patty Harcrow-
Orr and Jane Vega on vocals,
Jace DelGado, Joshua Gill
and Jennifer Morgan on
trumpet, Jesse Schofield and
Selene Hunter-Rastad on pi-
ano, Jim Schell on alto and
tenor saxophone, and Jessica
McAlister on baritone sax.
Jones sat in on a few num-
bers, singing, playing, and
keeping the audience enter-

trained, big band style.
The concert opened with a
virtually bare stage. An in-
troduction by Jones was
punctuated by the trumpet
blare of a New Orleans clas-
sic, "Second Line," played on
the hoof by the ensemble as
members strutted onstage
from the back of the house.
George and Ira Gershwin
got a good workout, with "A
Foggy Day," "I Got Rhythm,"
"Summertime," and "It Had
to Be You," variously per-
formed with music and vo-
cals.
Newcomer Cody
Copeland, ("My Frank
Sinatra," said Jones) sang "It
Had to Be You" with a touch
of Vegas style. DelGado and
Schell each got a chance to
solo on "Summertime," and
the band swung together for
John Coltrane's "Cousin
Mary" and the 70s Blood,
Sweat & Tears anthem
"Sprinning Wheel." Motown
also got a nod with "Ain't Too

Movie Review

"Fracture" The triumph of actors over story


By BRUCE COLLIER
If you have any knowledge
of criminal law or of police
procedure, Gregory Hoblit's
"Fracture" is going to leak
like a sieve. However, help-
ing you to suspend your dis-
belief is a well-chosen en-
semble of actors, including
Ryan Gosling, David
Strathairn, and the redoubt-
able Sir Anthony Hopkins.
Hopkins turns 70 this
year. Under his artistic belt'
are some of the most under-
played ("Remains of the
Day") and over-the-top ("The
Silence of the Lambs") perfor-
mances by any actor in film
history. Like the late
Laurence Olivier, Hopkins'
mere presence in a film is
sufficient to earn it both criti-
cal notice and box- office suc-
cess. Personally, I watch all
his films, just to see whether
we're in for proper Sir An-
thony or Tony the Wild-eyed
Welshman. Like any good
showman, he always keeps
you guessing.
In "Fracture," Hopkins
plays Ted Crawford, an aero-
nautics tycoon with a fast car,
a gorgeous wife, and a come-


and-go Irish accent.-
Crawford shoots his missus
into a coma when he learns
she is unfaithful. He then
insists on representing him-
self at trial for her at-
tempted murder.
Appearing for the state is
Willy Beachum, played by
Ryan Gosling. Beachum is
a hard-working deputy dis-
trict attorney. He's swim-
ming in debt and about to
trade up to a highly-paid
position at a glossy civil liti-
gation firm. Beachum loves
victory, and he sees the
Crawford case as a lock-
tight win to go out on.
At this point, we know
we're in for another Hopkins
specialty, the intellectual
malefactor. He's all smooth-
ness and courtesy, but nutty
as a pair of waltzing mice,
in the words of Raymond
Chandler.
Beachum's confidence in
an easy win is shattered as
Crawford chips away at the
seemingly damning evi-
dence. It gives nothing away
to reveal that Crawford
skates for lack of evidence.


Now the fun really begins,
and the cat-and-mouse game
takes on the quality of
Hitchcock's more watchable
films.
Much of the plot and story
of "Fracture" hinges on rules
of evidence and legal prin-
ciples such as bias,
voluntariness of incriminat-
ing statements, double jeop-
ardy, and estoppel. Getting
into any of them in any depth
might spoil the movie.
For the most part, the
screenwriters try to toe the le-
gal line, but lawyers and cops
who watch this will undoubt-
edly spot some major credibil-
ity stretchers.
All that can be said is, turn
off your inner reality-check-
ing device, and let Hopkins,
Gosling, and Strathairn (as a
stern but fair D.A.) take you
for a comfortably paced and
satisfying thrill-ride for
grown-ups.
There are no head-bangs, fire-
balls, or floating ninjas in
"Fracture," but hey,
"Spiderman 3" opens this
week. Can the Silver Surfer
be far behind?


WMS PRINCIPAL Russell Hughes posed with winners and judges of the annual Tropicana
Speech Contest. Seen here are (L-R) Principal Hughes, Madkine Jones (first place), Joyce
Kelly, Allyssa Padgett (second place), Susan Rockman, Clay Permenter (third place), Char-
lotte Cuchens and Cheryl Haney, a 4-H representative.


THE ENTIRE 6th-GRADE class at Walton Middle School participated in the Tropicana
Speech Contest. Here, the top 30 students pose for a group photo with Principal Hughes (far
right).

The

tomorrow that

never comes


By DR. ROBERT M. JAYE
The writer of Proverbs 27:1
has some good advice for all
of us. "Boast not thyself of
tomorrow; for thou knowest
not what a day may bring
forth." Some tomorrows of
our expectation will never
come to fruit..
The first things that may
never come is that of bad
trouble. That day will have
its troubles, yet they may not
be what you dread. While
there are surely days of
troubles to come, about one-
half of the things we worry
about never happen. Even if
they did, believers have the


Lord to lean on.
Again, the tomorrow of rest
for many people may never
come. Many people expect a
day to come which will bring
with it the rest they antici-
pate. The rest which may
come may be through the la-
bor of illness. Think of that
and see if it will change your
desire for tomorrow to come
with that kind of rest.
Further, there is a tomor-
row of leisure that may never
come. We may be busy today,
but deceive ourselves that
tomorrow we will have more
time. In the Christian's world
there is no time for leisure,

that we should be doing more
for the Master.
Once more, there is the to-
morrow of happiness that
may never come. Christian
have the right to expect days
of happiness, yet that is be-
cause of what the world of-
fers. Once there was a man
who expected happiness from
the things which the world
provided. But God said unto
him, "Thou fool, this night
thy soul shall be required of


thee. So is he who layeth up
treasure for himself and is
not rich toward God."

With the tomorrow of
trouble, there can also be the
tomorrow of blessings. Scat-
ter the seed ofjoy in the Lord;
you will find that the gather-
ing will have plenty for every
day. Days of wretchedness
may come, but be assured
from the Bible that every day
with Jesus is sweeter than
the day before.


Attend the church of your

choice this Sunday!

Jesus has you in his arms,
Oh, how we miss your loving charms,
Seems like it was just yesterday,
Heard you laugh, watched you play,
Unless we remember to never forget,
All your memories will be blessed,

Dawn will bring a new day,
And we will visit it that's okay!
Visit we shall, to show how much we care,
Invisible to use but we know you are there,
Dancing and smiling, whispering in our ear,

Each of us miss you more with each tear,
Now we can't answer the reason why,
Cause God has for us all one big surprise,
And we will wait until the rejoiceful day,
Regardless of time, regardless of age,
Deep in sorrow, still deeper our pride,
Every time we visit, every time we come by,
So it is our faith that keeps us on this day!

Walton baseball falls


to Northview 2-1


By PATRICK CASEY
Northview's Jeff Price
threw his second two-hitter
of the year against Walton as
the Chiefs held on for a 2-1
District 1, Class 3A semifinal
win over the Walton Braves.
Walton trailed Northview
2-0 entering the top of the
seventh inning only to put
two men on via an error and
a walk. After a popout, Wal-
ton took advantage of a
throwing error on a double


steal to cut the advantage to
2-1, but a failed squeeze bunt
resulted in the runner on
third being tagged out at the
plate by Price. Price then got
Isaac Jackson to foul out on
a pop-up down the first base
line to steal the win.
Northview took a 1-0 lead
in the third inning, then
added a solo home run by
Brandon Walker to take a 2-
0 lead to the final inning.
Junior Sean Carter de-
served a better fate, as he al-


lowed only six hits for the
Braves, but his offense could
manage only a pair of hits on
the afternoon.
Walton (9-16) and South
Walton (14-9) were both
eliminated in semifinal ac-
tion, leaving Pensacola
Catholic and Northview to
face each other for the dis-
trict title. The Crusaders
claimed another district
championship with an 11-1
win on Friday.

Freeport saw their base-
ball season come to an end in
the District 1, Class 2A base-
ball semifinal as Jay scored
eight runs in the fourth in-
ning to drop the Bulldogs 12-
1. Coach Gene Martin saw
his squad wrap up the sea-
son with an 11-12 record.
If Paxton wins their open-
ing Class A baseball playoff
game over Bethlehem, it
could mean a trip to Talla-
hassee to face FAMU. The
Baby Rattlers won their first
District 3 baseball title to
earn their first ever berth in
the baseball state playoffs.
FAMU is 12-13 entering
their home playoff opener
with Gainesville St. Francis,
who enters the playoffs with
a less than stellar 8-16 record
as runner-up from District 4.
The good news for Bobcats
fans is an upset of FAMU,
who has pitchirig problems at
times, would send St. Francis
to Paxton for a second round
game. Lurking in the shad-

PDL earned a berth into
the Class 2A baseball play-
offs with a 14-0 shellacking
of Vernon in the semifinal

as runner-up and earn a road
date at Jay. The Pirates lost
to the Royals last season 7-5
and face a tough test in the

that contest faces the winner
of the Wewa-Sneads game on
Friday, May 4. PDL is still
looking for its first baseball
playoff win, the Pirates are
0-5 in school history in the

Gordon wins, beer cans fly


By CHUCK HINSON
It wasn't Miller Time for
Jeff Gordon this past Sunday
in Talladega, When he won
the Aaron's 499, he was
created and jeered with a
barrage of beer cans thrown
from the stands. The win put
Gordon over the top where he
won his 77th NASCAR race
and breaking the tie he had
with the late Dale Earnhardt
from the week before, for the
most career victories.

It took place in Talladega,
where Earnhardt had won 10


times in his Cup career. But
many thought it was unde-
served, due to the race end-
ing under a caution,.
Even Gordon radioed in to
his pit crew asking if the race
was over and if it was official.
The fans showed their dis-
appointment at Gordon beat-
ing the long-standing victory
record of Dale Earnhardt.
After the Phoenix victory,
Gordon circled the track wav-
ing a No. 3 flag in tribute to
Earnhardt. Many felt it was
inappropriate, despite
Earnhardt Jr., telling fans


that Gordon was waving the
flag in honor of his late fa-
ther.

Earnhardt Jr. even went
to the winner's circle after
the race to congratulate Gor-
don, but he told him that
when he did pass his father's
record, he would not be there
to shake his hand. It was a
good thing that Earnhardt
Jr. made his way to the pit
instead of trying to dodge the
pounding of beer cans.
Even though Earnhardt
Jr., authorities and track of-


ficials condemned fans for
throwing the beer cans and
aksed them not to throw
them on to the track, they did
so. Track officials did their
part and stuck to their
prmoise as numerous fans
were taken from the stands,
handcuffed and removed for
throwing the cans.

Gordon cut short his on-
track celebration and drove
directly to victory lane.
Though Gordon and crew
seemed to be frazzled, he said
they understood the fans' re-


action about him passing
Earnhardt Sr. with the most
victories.
With the two accidents and
numerous flags that flew,
Gordon pulled ahead of
Jamie McMurray for the lead
with a split-second before a
caution flag came flying.
That set-up the green check-
ered flag, which meant that
Gordon was out in front at
the restart.
But with that start came
another accident in the back
of the line-up that brought
out another flag.Tthat pile-

A bird's-eye view of

the graceful osprey
By JEFFREY POWELL
Anyone who has spent time
in, .on or around the
Choctawhatchee Bay, or its as-
sociated bayous and rivers,
recognizes the high pitched
call of the osprey. The osprey
is a medium-sized bird that is
primarily brown on its back
and white under the wings. A
distinctive feature of the
osprey is the point on the lead-
ing edge of the wings. This dis-
tinction makes an osprey easy
to spot when in flight.

Also called the 'fish hawk' in
some areas, the osprey thrive
virtually everywhere in the
Americas close to 'a water
body. The osprey depend al-
most exclusively on fresh fish

for their sustenance and are
excellent fishers. Ospreys fish
by flying high above the wa-
ter and relying on their excel-
lent eyesight to look just be-
low the surface. Once the prey
has been spotted, the bird will
dive at amazing speeds and hit
the water talons first. If the
catch is successful, the bird
will take flight once more and
shake the water from its body
(an impressive sight in its own
right). The bird will then situ-
ate the fish so that it is car-
ried head-first.
Osprey nest in the tops of
dead trees, as well as man-
made elevated platforms.


, DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, MAY 3, 2007
Their nests are stick built and
vary in size. Nests are lined
with smaller branches, bark
and weeds to protect the eggs.
The female osprey will incu-
bate two to four eggs for ap-
proximately 38 days and the
male will provide the meals.
The young birds first fly
around 50 days and are depen-
dant on the parents for six
weeks on average.
Anyone new to the area or
unfamiliar with the osprey
should take a ride along Hwy.
20 near Choctaw Beach and
enjoy a rare opportunity to get
a bird's-eye view of the grace-
ful osprey.

NEW WALTON
COUNTY JAIL
OPEN AND


Diner approved 'au natural'


0ji


A HABITAT conservation plan for Walton County will ad-
dress the interests of the other residents and users of the
beaches aside from humans. These more elusive residents and
visitors include the native sea turtles, beach mice, and pip-
ing plovers. (Photo by Dotty Nist.)


County endorses

native habitat


By DOTTY NIST
A shiny traditional-style
diner is expected to be setting
up for business soon, just
north of U.S. 98 in Santa
Rosa Beach, as a result of
county approval last week.
These vintage-style diners
evoke nostalgia and enthusi-
asm for many people, but
they have not been free from
controversy in Walton
County. The county's Scenic
Corridor Standards for U.S.
98 and U.S. 331 south of the
bay specifically prohibit
metal buildings, unless the
buildings are disguised with
stucco fronts or other code-
approved finishes.
In fact, it was some
Miramar Beach business
ow ners' distress about a
large metal building going up
on U.S.98 in the mid-1990s
that resulted in the Scenic
Corridor Standards being
created.
When the Santiago Diner
proposal was presented at
the April 24 Walton County
Board of County Commis-
sioners (BCC) meeting, Tim
Brown, county planner, ex-
plained that this is a prefab
diner building. Its location is
the north side of U.S. 98 be-


tween CR-393 and Veterans
Road in Santa Rosa Beach.
The building is not directly
on the highway, but in the
second tier of buildings
slightly to the north.
Brown noted that the pro-
posal had met all code re-
quirements with the excep-
tion of architecture, and that
the Design Review Board
(DRB) had denied the plans
on that basis.
All new proposals for
within 400 feet on both sides
of the Scenic Corridor un-
dergo separate review by the
DRB to determine compli-
ance with specific architec-
tural and other aesthetics-
related standards.
Brown noted that al-
though the same building
had formerly been in opera-
tion, on another part of the
Scenic Corridor, the DRB
members said that they had
not approved it, rather, it had
been approved during the
time that the DRB had been
suspended. During the late
1990s, the BCC had dis-
banded the DRB for a time.
County staffd- were respon-
sible for reviewing projects
for Scenic Corridor compli-
ance during that period.


Speaking for the appli-
cants, engineer William
Horn told the commissioners
that he would be returning
to the DRB with.plans to
stucco the building, which he
displayed. He hoped that the
.commissioners would agree
to the proposal, contingent
on that approval being
granted.
Walton County resident
and diner fan Mary Nelson
asked the commissioners to
make an exception in the
case of the diner.
"It would be nice if you
would approve it 'as is,'"
Nelson urged..
District 5 Commissioner
Cindy Meadows agreed, say-
ing she thought it should be
possible to put in a 1950s-
style diner "as it is."
"This is the diner that we!
all remember," she said, get-
ting agreement from a num-
ber at the gathering, with
others sympathetic, but
clarifying that they were not
old enough to remember the
real 1950s diners.
The motion to approve the
diner proposal, sans stucco,
was approved by unanimous
vote.

plan agreement


By DOTTY NIST
An April 24 approval for-
malized an agreement be-
tween Walton County and
other governmental entities
responsible for protection of
native species. The goal is to
formulate a habitat conser-
vation plan (HCP) for feder-
ally protected sea turtles,
beach mice, and piping plo-
vers.
These are animals that
are dependent on beach habi-


tat. They may have been
negatively impacted by
coastal armoring installed by
beachfront property owners
in Walton County after Hur-
ricane Dennis in July 2005.
Under emergency order
following the hurricane, Wal-
ton County issued over 250
permits for the installation of
temporary coastal armoring,
so that residents could shore

Traffic safety team reviews safety concerns


By JEFFREY POWELL
The Walton County Com-
munity Traffic Safety Team
(CTST) met in Freeport on
April 25 to discuss a myriad


of concerns they have for the
safety and well being of pe-
destrians and motorist of the
area.
The CTST is a locally


based group of highway
safety advocates who are
committed to solving traffic
problems with the coopera-
tion of the Florida Depart-


Our first and foremost priority is the
safety and access of citizens and visitors and
to be proactive for the safety of the same." -

ment of Transportation. The
primary goal of the CTST is
to reduce the number and
severity of traffic crashes in
the community.
A large portion of
Wednesday's meeting was
dedicated to discussing park-
ing and signage on the pedes-
trian/bike path adjacent to
CR-30A in south Walton
County.
"The CTST recognizes the
construction industries need
for parking and access in the
CR-30A area," said CTST
Chairman Latilda Henniger.
However, our first and fore-
most priority is the safety
and access of citizens and
visitors and to be proactive
for the safety of the same."
Many complaints have
been received about con-
struction workers using the
pedestrian/bike path for
,parking. Some of those com-
plaints have centered on


large projects near Blue
Mountain Beach. Upon re-
cent inspection, most of those,
concerns have been ad-
dressed by the respective
contractors.
Also reviewed during the
meeting was the construction
of turn lanes at the intersec-
tion of U.S. 98 and Geronimo
Street. The CTST was instru-
mental in spearheading this
project and reported progress
in this area.
The intersection of Bruce
Avenue and U.S. 331 in De-
Funiak Springs is slated to
receive a traffic light and the
project is currently in the de-
sign phase. The CTST will be
following these develop-
ments closely.
The next CTST meeting
will be on May 23 at the
. former post office in Freeport
and the public is invited to
attend.

up their beachfront property.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service subsequently con-
tacted the county with con-
cerns that this county action
had resulted in an inciden-
tal "take" of federally pro-
tected species as a result of
the armoring. The result of
this contact was the county's
application for an incidental
take permit in June 2006.
This was accepted by the
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Ser-
vice and whose approval is
pending.
The service requested a
habitat conservation plan for
the county in connection with
the incidental take permit
application. The purpose is to
offset impacts on the beach
habitat-dependent species
resulting from the armoring
structures that the county
had approved on a temporary
basis. The plan may also be
used to offset future impacts
if the county undertakes
similar action in the future.
As a result of a grant ap-
plication from Walton
County, the service has allo-
cated $446,000 in funding for
the HCP.
The purpose of the inter-
governmental agreement ap-
proved last week is to formal-
ize cooperation between the
entities to facilitate and ex-
pedite development of the
HCP. Parties involved in-
clude the county, the U.S.
Fish and Wildlife Service, the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission,
and the Florida Department
of Environmental Protection
(DEP).
Rob Griscti, a consultant
for the county on the inciden-
tal take issue, noted that this
has been "a difficult issue."
He pointed out that the
agreement "contemplates the
future," which he took as a
hopeful signal from the fed-
eral and state authorities.
In order to be considered
to leave their post-IHurricane
Dennis coastal armoring in


FROM FRONT

place permanently, property
owners were required to
make application to the DEP
within 60 days from comple-
tion of the structures. Thus
far only a handful of such
applications have been ap-
proved.
The 14-page intergovern-
mental agreement states
that the U.S. Fish and Wild-
life Service "shall develop an
umbrella HCP...to cover pri-
vate property owner applica-
tions for shoreline protection
for permanent shoreline pro-
tection structures in Walton
County."


The interim guide-
lines for coastal
armoring document
that are part of the
intergovernmental
agreement endorsed
by Walton County
may be viewed on
line at
www.dep.state.fl.us/
beaches/


However, Griscti noted
that what additional actions
may be required of property
owners who apply for perma-
nent armoring permits will
be "a property by property is-
sue" to be determined by
state authorities.
The agreement sets stan-
dards for sand placed on the
beach in connection with
emergency shoreline protec-
tion, as in the wake of storm
impacts. Sand is required to
be similar in size and color
to local natural beach sand.
It must not be placed so as to
negatively affect sea turtle
nesting or other protected
plants or wildlife. The sand
must also comply with Wal-

ton County's White Sand
Protection Ordinance, which
sets similar standards.
Included with the agree-
ment are "Interim Guide-
lines to Local Governments
for Emergency Temporary
Coastal Armoring," for use
in the event Walton County
or any local government
elects to authorize additional
temporary armoring under
emergency order in response
to future storm events.
The guidelines set stan-
dards and requirements for
temporary armoring, includ-
ing material, construction,
distance from the gulf and
buildings, and others.
Griscti pointed out that,
according to the standards,
"a survey will be required" to
armor in the future in order
to ensure that armoring is
placed on private property.
-Issues with armoring ap-
parently encroaching onto'
public property, resulting
from emergency order con-
struction in Walton County,
have yet to be resolved.
Pat Blackshear, county
planning and development
services director, emphasized
that the HCP .will require
that the county adopt a light-
ing ordinance to protect sea
turtle nesting.
"There's no ifs ands and
buts about it," she said.
Over the past few years
several attempts by the


county to adopt such an or-
dinance have met with in-
tense opposition from a small
group of beachfront property
owners.
Some citizens in atten-
dance were concerned about
costs related to the HCP and
who would pay.
Billy McKee, county envi-
ronmental planner, stated
that the county would have
$600,000 available to spend
on developing the HCP, in
addition to any amounts
spent by the federal govern-
ment. Blackshear said the
$600,000 figure includes
grant funding and in-kind
services to be provided by the
county.
She added that the major-
ity of the county's match will
be covered by in-kind ser-
vices, including work on the.
turtle lighting ordinance,
and the beach surveying and
monitoring that is already
conducted by the South Wal-
ton Tourist Development
Council.
Environmental Services
has been contracted at a cost
of $208,000 to assist with the
HCP, and that contract will
represent part of the county
match, according to McKee.

Volunteers from Walton,

Jackson Counties gathered
at Hard Labor Creek Lodge,

of training to become certi-
fied as team members of the
University of Florida's Lake
Watch Program.
Elder Care Services and
UF kicked off their partner-.
ship to expand this fresh wa-
ter lake testing project in
February, and interest was
overwhelming.
SOnce trained, these volun-


teers will go back to their
communities and collect
samples from a variety of
fresh water lakes on a
monthly basis.
These samples are frozen
and routinely picked up'by
UF for laboratory testing.
In addition to the samples
sent to UF, volunteers con-
duct and document nutrient
concentration, chlorophyll
concentration and water
clarity in their homes and
record this data. This infor-
mation is used to create- a
.database that can help estab-


lish baseline conditions and
long term trends.
It also serves as an early
warning system to help iden-
tify potential problems.
Data is used by scientists
and lake managers involved
in research, planning and
management of aquatic re-
sources.

STATE OF FLORIDA
DEPARTMENT OF
ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION
NOTICE OF PERMIT ISSUANCE

The DEP has issued a permit (File No.
66-0187287-008-DF) to Owl's Head Man-
agement, Inc., to impact jurisdictional
wetlands for the construction of golf cart
bridges in association with the proposed
Owl's Head Golf Course. This permit is
hereby granted unless a sufficient peti-
tion for an administrative hearing is timely
filed under sections 120.569 and 120.57
of the Florida Statutes as provided be-
low. The procedures for petitioning for a
hearing are set forth below. The project
is located east of U.S. Highway 331, in
wetlands adjacent to Magnolia Creek,
Section 25, Township 1-N, Range 19-W,
Class III Waters of the State, Freeport,
Walton County.

A person whose substantial interests
are affected by the Department's action
may petition for an administrative pro-
ceeding (hearing) under sections 120.569
and 120.57 of the Florida Statutes. The
petition must contain the information set
forth below and must be filed (received
by the clerk) in the Office of General
Counsel of the Department at 3900 Com-
monwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35,
Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000.

Because the administrative hearing
process is designed to redetermine final
agency action on the application, the fil-
ing of a petition for an administrative hear-
ing may result in a modification of the
permit and lease, or even a denial of the
application. Accordingly, 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 re-
quest for an extension of time have ex-
pired.

Under rule 62-110.106(4) of the Florida
Administrative Code, a person whose
substantial interests are affected 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. Re-
quests for extension of time must be filed
with the Office of General Counsel of the
Department at 3900 Commonwealth
Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee,
Florida 32399-3000, before the appli-
cable deadline. A timely request for ex-
tension of time shall toll the running 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 requesting party showing
that the failure to file a request for an ex-
tension of time before the deadline was
the result of excusable neglect.

In the event that a timely and sufficient
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 pro-
ceeding. Intervention 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 notice. 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


PAGE 13-C
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 notice of
agency action may file a petition within
14 days of such notice, regardless of the
date of publication.

The petitioner shall mail a copy of the
petition to the applicant at the address
indicated above at the time of filing. The
failure of any person to file a petition for
an administrative hearing or pursue me-
diation as provided below within the ap-
propriate time period shall constitute a
waiver of those rights.

A petition that disputes the material
facts on which the Department's action
is based must contain the following in-
formation:

(a) The name and address of each
agency affected and each agency's file
or identification number, if known;
(b) the name, address, and telephone
number of the petitioner; the name, ad-
dress, 'and telephone number of the
petitioner's representative, if any, which
shall be the address for service purposes
during the course of the proceeding; and
an explanation of how the petitioner's
substantial interests are or will be affected
by the agency determination;
(c) A statement of when and how the
petitioner received notice of the agency
decision,
(d) a statement of all disputed issues
of material fact. If there are none, the
petition must so indicate;
(e) Aconcise statement of the ultimate
facts alleged, including the specific facts
that the petitioner contends warrant re-
versal or modification of the agency's pro-
posed action; and
(f) A statement of the specific rules or
statutes that the petitioner contends re-
quire reversal or modification of the
agency's proposed action;
(g) A statement of the relief sought by
the petitioner, stating precisely the action
that the petitioner wishes the agency to
take with respect to the agency's pro-
posed action.

A petition that does not dispute the
material facts on which the Department's
action is based shall state that no such
facts are in dispute and otherwise shall
contain the same information as set forth
above, as required by rule 28-106.301.

W hat (-'
you are
watching
on televi-
sion is in-
fluencing
the way
you buy,
vote and
even live.
Experts say that
more and more deci-
sions are being made
by means of televi-
sion and the
Internet, than ever
before.

Of course television has
influenced the way we think
about issues, consider politi-
cians and even made the
mind up concerning pur-
chases. But more and more
are finding that the Internet
has become the fastest way
to get information and the
easiest way to make that pur-
chase.
When the Marlboro man
rode his horse across the
plains of the midwest in the
1960s, more and more men
picked up the habit of smok-
ing to have that "cool" look.
In the 1970s, smoking adver-
tisement was pulled from the
airwaves, due to constant
pressure by anti-tobacco lob-
bies and those who 'had lost
loved.ones due to lung can-
cer.
Recently, more and more
liqour advertisements have
begun to resurface on main
stream television, and are no
longer just found in printed
advertisement. There were
no laws prohibiting televi-
sion ads on television, but
due to so many organizations
and anti-alcohol groups, the
pressure was too much for
many distillers.
Even today's ads end with
the phrase "please drink re-
sponsibly."
Political ads are dominat-


ing the airwaves and are the
center of every talk show the
past few weeks. Every time
you turn on the television,
one candidate is ridiculing
another candidate, or the
press has just "uncovered"
some breaking news about
one of the presidential hope-
fuls.

But what television has not
covered or has taken too long
to bring to the public's atten-
tion, the World -Wide Web
has taken up the slack. Hun-
dreds of sites dedicated to the
"breaking news" are flooding
the screen with chat rooms,
blogs and feedback polls.
One can learn one's favor-
ite performers secret rebah
vacation, or can learn about
who is sueing who on the po-
litical homefront. Either way,
it is news in a moment.
Of course with.television,
advertisers pay various
amounts to get their ad
placed in a certain time slot
and during a highly-rated
program. From beer and
truck commercials during
the Super Bowl, to make-up
and feminine hygiene prod-
uct ads being strategically
placed during Oprah
Winfrey 's show, all have a
certain spot.
Advertisers have known
for years that television ad-
vertising is one of the most
effective ways to get a prod-
uct in front of the public's
buying eyes. Suprisingly, the
Internet has now begun to
topple television advertising
and draw in the dollars from
web users.
,But how much do we really


pay attention
to the ads that
-i clog our
websites, or
i make their
.LB Ji way onto the
boob tube
/ screen every
five minutes
during our fa-
vorite show?
Do we really
believe every-
thing that is
advertised?
The buying public is said to
believe anything and buy
anything andeverything. The
best example of that is E-bay,
and the multi-million dollar
business the founder has
built, on selling things to
people that another person
doesn't want anymore.
Even cartoons like The
Simpsons have been used to
sell Butterfinger candy bars.
Those sales continue to rise
due to the 30 second ani-
mated spots. It goes to prove
that it takes the smallest of
eye-catching graphics and
wording, and the public is
standing in line for hours to
give the store owner money.
An ever-growing public is
constantly getting updated
on current events, just mo-
ments after they happen, and
sometimes even before. It is
up to the public to make clear
and concise decisions. Be it a
purchase, a candidate, or
something that might change
your daily life, do what people
have been doing for hundreds
of year.
Before television, before
the Internet and even before
radio, the public got its news
and found out about the sales
from the local newspaper. It
might not be as quickly up-
dated or have as many eye-
catching graphics as the
other forms of media, but you
never an outlet to plug into
for the latest news, advertis-
ing and local happenings.
Newspaper. It is still roll-
ing off the presses and con-
tinues to make its mark in
the world of information,
even after all these years.


CLASSIC MUSTANGS AND THUNDERBIRDS lined the parking lot at the Santa Rosa
Mall in Fort Walton Beach this past weekend. The annual FWB Classic Ford Car Show
boasted more than 75 antique and vintage cars and trucks.
