DFS Council concerned over impact of fees


By JOSHUA SMITH
Public safety impact fees
may be revisited by the De-
Funiak Springs City Council
after figures from surround-
ing cities were given to the
council Tuesday night.
City Council members ex-
pressed concern that the pro-
posed fees would discourage
new development in the city
because they are much
higher than surrounding ar-
eas. For instance, Crestview
charges $.02 per square foot
in a residential development,
while the proposed fees for
the city are in excess of $2 per
square foot.
City Manager Kim Kirby
noted that comparing DeFu-
iiak Springs to other cities
in the area is not comparing
apples to apples, but rather


applies to oranges. "The pro-
posed fees are based on a
study done that was commis-
sioned by you," she said.
City Attorney Clayton
Adkison also noted that
there was no way of knowing
how area cities arrived at
their number, or how their
studies, if one was done, was
conducted.
Councilmember Don
Harrison was concerned par-
ticularly about commercial
impact fees. For example, the
new Loews Home Center to
be built in DeFuniak Springs
would be charged $406,000
in police and fire impact fees
to build in DeFuniak
Springs. "We could build a
new police station for that,"
he said.
Mayor Pro-tempore James


Huffman reminded the coun-
cil that the iinpact fees were
for investment in the city's
services as the city grows.
The Government Studies
Group, which conducted the
study and offered the pro-
posed fees, will meet again
with the city council to.ad-
dress their concerns.
Harrison also expressed
concern over language in a
new cemetery permit policy.
The permit is to enable the
city to track who is working
in the cemetery with items
such as burials, monument
work, and other major
projects.
The policy was developed
by the cemetery board in con-
junction with local monu-
ment companies and funeral
homes. The language was


such, Harrison said, that it
sounded like individuals
couldn't do minor housekeep-
ing, such as pruning shrubs,
to their personal plots with-
out a $25 city permit. Kirby
assured him this was not the
intent of the permit process
and that the $25 feewas not
a money-maker, but rather
for administrative costs in
implementing the program.
The resolution was tabled
unanimously and will be re-
visited by the cemetery
board.
SAll other business was also
approved unanimously and
included Ordinance 750, an
amendment to the future
land use map; acceptance of
a donation of a small plot of
land at the corner of Hwy.
331 and Baldwin Avenue bor-


during other city property,
formerly owned by Peter
Woolley.
The plot was taken off the
tax rolls as a result, but the
plot generates less than $100
in tax revenues per year; the
purchase of ten additional
dumpsters for the sanitation
department at a cost of
$9,600; the approval of a bid
by Gum Creek Construction
for airport repairs in the
amount of $905,880. The bid
did include an irregularity,
but Kirby called it "minor,"
noting that even with the ir-
regularity, the bid was
$180,000 less than the next
lowest bidder. Adkison said
that as such, approving the
bid would not be showing

Property tax


cuts pinch local


governments


By JOSHUA SMITH
The state Legislature con-
vened Monday in special ses-
sion to begin debate on a cut
in property taxes across the
state. The movement has
been largely led by Rep.
Marco Rubio, Speaker of the
House of Representatives.
The proposed property tax
cuts takes a multi-faceted
approach that will affect mu-
nicipalities, counties and
special districts.
"What we're doing for our
counties is good for growth,"
said state Sen. Durell.
Peaden. "We're making sure
we're keeping up with fami.-
lies' needs and making sure
families can afford their
homes." Peaden would not
comment on specifics of the
proposal until the final ver-
sion is ready for a vote.
"Hardworking men and
women who have suffered
under skyrocketing property
taxes in communities across
our state are closer to find-
ing the-relief they desper-
ately need," said Gov. Charlie
Crist.
There are currently two
different proposals in Talla-
hassee: a House and Senate
version.
According to county Fi-
nance Director Bill Imfeld,
the House version would re-
duce local ad valorem rev-
enues by $6 million, while
the Senate version would re-
duce revenues by $9 million.
The county currently collects
approximately $60 million in
ad valorem taxes annually.
"The concept is the same in
both versions, but the formu-
las are different," said
Imfeld. "We'll be meeting
over the next two weeks to
determine what is going to
need to be done."
Imfeld said that as the pro-
posal is currently structured,
budget cuts will have to be
made. "We can't find any
other tax source that's viable
at this time (to make up the
difference)," he said. How-
ever, Infield said everything
possible will be done to en-
sure that jobs are not cut.
"We're trying to structure a
budget that doesn't cost
jobs," he said.
The fiscal year 2007-08
budget for the county will be
brought before the board of
county commissioners on
July 11. The proposals base
the tax cuts on a per capital


levy basis, with no consider-
ation of the number of home-
steaded properties.
Under current law, home-
steaded residential proper-
ties receive a $25,000 tax ex-
emption, and some,,
homeowners qualify for ad-
ditional exemptions, some-
times up to $75,000. Addi-
tionally, the Save Our Homes
Act, enacted in 1992, caps
increases in tax levies on
homesteaded properties at
three percent annually.
However, the cut would
apply to all property taxes,
not just homestead proper-
ties.
"The legislature isn't tak-
ing into account the number
of absent land owners and
investment properties in a
locality," 'said Imfeld. "For
example, Walton County's
population doubles when you
account for tourists and ab-
sent landowners in the
months of March, June, July,
and August." The county has
to provide infrastructure to
maintain citizen services and
public safety for both resi-
dents and non-residents,
Imfeld said.
The most immediate form
of the cut is the roll back rate.
Each different local govern-
ment has a different roll back
rate, based on the increase in
per capital property taxes lev-
ied since 2001. The new tax
bill would be calculated by
applying the rate cut to a
property owners 2006 tax
bill, then adding in new con-
struction values, which are
not covered in the cut.
In the House plan, Walton
County would see a nine,per-
cent roll back rate, the high-
est rate cut bracket despite
having the third lowest mill-
age rate in the state, behind
only Okaloosa and Monroe
counties. Okaloosa also falls
into the nine percent bracket,
as well as the city of Free-
port. Conversely, DeFuniak
Springs will fall into the low-
est bracket, at only three per-
cent. Any future increases in
property taxes would also be
capped in the House plan,
with rates growing with the
state economy.
Another facet is a so-called
"super-sized homestead ex-
emption" that would require
a constitutional amendment
that would be on the ballot

WCTA asks 'How do you


want your money spent?'


By RON KELLEY
Walton County Taxpayers
Association (WCTA) mem-
bers want local citizens to
have a voice in how their
money is spent.

The proposed property tax
plan from state legislators in
Tallahassee suggests that
Walton County government
will have several million dol-
lars less to spend on local
projects and services. Local
governments have been
warned that the state budget
will offer, less money to
county and city governments
and local budgets are being
developed now to reflect
these decreased tax rev-
enues.


WCTA president Bonnie
McQuiston said people need
to know how tax and budget
cuts affect them and the gov-
ernment services they re-
ceive. "We are all in this to-
gether, taxpayers and local
governments," she said.
As budget time in Walton
County nears, a meeting is
being planned at the Mossy
Head' Community Center for
Monday, June 18, at 6:30
p.m., to discuss how local dol-
lars should be spent.
"If you want to help set
priorities for government ser-
vices," said McQuiston, "if
you want officials to know
which government services
are important to you, if you
want to say where your tax


money should be spent or not .
spent, if you want govern-
ment by the people, if you;
want to be part of a team ef-
fort to make our county the
best it can be; then attend
this community meeting.
Now is the time for every con-
cerned citizen in Walton'
County to have a voice in:
where and how their money
is spent."
The meeting is being orga-
nized by the WCTA and co-::
sponsored by The DeFunialk"
Herald-Beach Breeze,
WMBB TV13:-and WWEO
TV24. The Mossy Head Com-
munity Center is the oldk;

Limit landscape irrigation
to no more than two days per
week, water only during the

p.m. to 10 a.m.
Aesthetic uses of water
that are primarily decorative
(such as fountains), should
be voluntarily discontinued.

When Skipper took office
in 2005, she said the annual
live auction tied up about six

Statewide burn ban lifted


By Sheena Foster
WMBB TV13
Nearly one month to the
day, Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer
Services' Commissioner
Charles Bronson announced
Friday the statewide burn
ban imposed by Governor
Charlie Crist on May 3 be
lifted Friday.
But certain bone-dry coun-
ties are not out of the red yet
and that means municipal
and county burn ban restric-
tions will override that lift
until rains soaking enough
dig the counties out of
trouble.
The following counties are
still under burn bans: Bay,
Gulf, Franklin, Holmes and
Walton counties.
That means any outside
burning, including burning
of trash and bonfires are for-
bidden. Offenders face fines
up to $500 or jail time from
the Florida Division of For-
estry.
Bay County fire officials
hope Friday's burn ban lift
won't confuse residents.
"We need to remain dili-
gent and stay focused on
keeping the fire situation
under control in our county.
We need to be conscious of
the conditions around us. I
think most people are but we
need to hold on to that
thought until we get some


significant rainfall," Bay Brad Monroe told News 13
County Fire Battalion Chief Saturday.

The opportunity


to serve

By RON KELLEY

Thomas Edison once said, "Opportunity is
missed by most people because it comes dressed
in overalls and looks like work."
Fortunately, Harold Carpenter doesn't mind
work at all. That's why many local people are find-
ing they now have a opportunity to get things
accomplished in DeFuniak Springs that they
couldn't get accomplished before.
For months, several local business owners had
tried, without success, to have city sidewalks
cleaned, city lamp posts repainted and city side-
walks properly swept. The DeFuniak Springs
Business and Professional Association (DBPA)
also got involved and, at first, were not success-
ful either.
Then an editorial appeared in this newspaper
urging the DeFuniak Springs City Council to give
the office of mayor more authority and the power
to act independently of city management staff. An
editorial from a local radio station soon followed.
Council members also heard from a number of
city residents on the subject.
The City Council responded to the people and
changed their policies, expanding the duties and
authority of the mayor's office. Then the DBPA
contacted Mayor Carpenter and asked for the
city's help in making downtown look better be-
fore the annual Fourth of July celebration, which
always draws thousands of visitors and locals to
the Lakeyard and downtown area.
The mayor responded instantly. Instead of
platitudes or vague promises, there was action.
Within a few days, city crews were busy sprucing
up Baldwin Avenue. The sidewalks were pressure-
washed. City employees in 'cherry-picker' trucks
were painting the tall, Victorian lamp posts that
line the avenue. Both men and machines were
cleaning the streets.
As a result, Baldwin Avenue looks better than
it has in years. Shop owners planted flowers in
the few large urns that decorate one block and
the whole downtown area looks welcoming and
attractive. Business and store owners are gener-
ally delighted.
All it took was reaching the right person.
The City Council deserves part of the credit.
Without them, it could not have happened. They
recognized that there was a need to make some
policy changes for the good of the city and so they
did. That's what good policy-makers do and it
made a world of difference.
The city crews also deserve praise for doing
their jobs so well, with a minimum df disruption
to the shops and offices.
As a business occupant of Baldwin Avenue, I
want to thank Mayor Carpenter for stepping for-
ward without hesitation and getting the job done
quickly, efficiently and without fanfare. Carpen-
ter represents an increasingly rare breed an
elected official who understands that he is a pub-
lic servant, elected to serve the people which
makes him eminently qualified to lead the people
he serves.

Letters to the Editor


Editor:
From the depths of my heart, I extend to each of you a
grateful thank-you for all that you have done during the loss
of my son, Sgt. Timothy P. Padgett. Many of you reached out
to our family with an extension of your love to us by your
calls, cards, flowers, food, monetary donations and donations
of small stuffed animals. The extension of your love was ap-
parent by your visitation and attendance of the funeral ser-
vices for Timmy. I will never forget the crowds of people at
the airport and those who lined the streets down Highway 90
and 11th Street to the funeral home, as we welcomed Tim home.
And again, those of you who lined the streets during the fu-
neral procession, you stood in the rain, you cried with us, you
saluted as the hearse passed by and you held your hand over
your hearts.
Because of all of your care, love, support, and prayers, I
have not had to carry this heavy burden alone and for that,
again, I say "Thank-You."
There is just simply no way that I can begin to list all the
people that have done so much for us during this difficult
time. From the news coverage, everything all the fire depart-
ments have and are still doing, patriotic riders, honor guards,
citizens of our community, elected officials, web pages, yellow
bows around the trees at the lakeyard, the children that stood
beside the road waving the American Flag, and to the U.S.
Army you all made this grim reality such that, through my
grief, I was able to see the beauty of it all. The beauty of my
memories of Timmy and the beauty of the memories that you
all gave to us during those difficult days, will brighten my
future.
Many of you helped me pray for Timmyj and so neither did
I carry that burden alone. Again, another thank-you. Timmy:
was covered with a blanket of prayer. Many of us prayed for'
his safety and with that we often thought of his safe return
home. I strongly believe God heard our prayers and God pro-
tected Timmy from things worse than death. So many of you
have told, me that you prayed for our family and for God to
give us peace about this; those prayers, too have been an-
swered, I have experienced the peace of God that passes all
understanding. And I know God's grace is sufficient. My
faith is high, and, with absolutely no doubt, one day I will see


him again in heaven.
I want to tell all of you that I love you all and I am so
grateful to have each of you in my life. I will continue to
pray and continue to lift up the name of Jesus. Prayer is one
of the best free gifts we receive. There is no cost, but a lot of
reward. Will you help me to continue to pray and make sure
you pray believing that God will answer? May each day be
all that you need it to be. May the peace of God and the
freshness of the Holy Ghost rest in your thoughts, rule in
your dreams tonight and conquer all your fears. May God
manifest himself today in ways that you have never experi-
enced. May your joys be fulfilled, your dreams be closer and
your prayers be answered. I pray that faith enters a new
height for you. I pray that your territory is enlarged and I
pray that you step into your destiny within the ministry. I
pray for peace, health, happiness and true and undying love
for God.
Sincerely with love and prayers,
Glenda O. Penton (Tim's Mom)
DeFuniak Springs


Editor,
I or we, the people, would like an answer. What current
and past number are we on the paving list? According to my
calls, there is no list.
It would be logical to have a past number on an outdated
list, so that out-of-state scientists can figure that one out
and even come with grants for someone's back yard,
I've been touring up and down Seven Oaks Road oine
twenty years to see this sad state of affairs. We, too, are ex-
tremely influential and very prominent out here in the "de-
pressed community" of Mossy Head. Get off your cans and
get some education to learn how to plan and make a list. Its
not that hard. Better yet, a stroller or bike path would be
great. Plan that, too, on your Special Interest list.
Thank You,
Louis Roberts

Comander sends tax relief



letter to Crist, Pruitt, Rubio


By BRUCE COLLIER
On June 12, Sara
Comander, District 4 commis-
sioner for the Walton County
Board of County Commission-
ers (BCC), sent a letter to
Florida Governor Charlie
Crist, Speaker of the House
Marco Rubio, and President of
the Senate Ken Pruitt.
Comander prefaced the letter
as coming from "a private citi-
zen," and voiced a number of
concerns over tax relief, spe-
cifically property taxes. The
Legislature is currently in spe-
cial session discussing that
subject. The following is the
full, unedited text of
Comander's letter.

"June 12, 2007

The Honorable Charlie Crist
The Honorable Ken Pruitt
The Honorable Marco Rubio

Dear Governor Crist, Presi-
dent Pruitt and Speaker
Rubio:
I am a commissioner in
Walton County but am writing
to you as a private citizen. Like
everyone in Walton County, I
could use some relief from
taxes. Property taxes are of
special concern here because
many people maintain second
homes on the beach and high-
end development continues
unabated. Some people have
had to sell their planned re-
tirement homes and property
because they could not afford
the taxes. The strain on single-
home owners and small com-
mercial property owners has
also reached alarming levels.
Because of these things, I


welcomed the promise by the
state to find a way to lower
property taxes and was eager
to hear from House Speaker
Marco Rubio of Miami and
House Speaker Designate
Ray Sansom, a former
Okaloosa County commis-
sioner. However, what I
heard was deeply disturbing.
The pair proclaimed that
the entire fault lies with lo-
cal politicians. Ray Sansom
was quoted as saying, "Cities
and counties haven't done
their part. The legislature
has to step in and do it for
them." Marco Rubio said that
calls from city and county of-
ficials warning of cuts in es-
sential services are "disin-
genuous" and claims that the
Florida Association of Coun-
ties and the Florida League
of Cities have formed a con-
spiracy to use "scare tactics"
to spread that message.
This distortion of the facts
by people who should know
better is especially troubling.
First of all, the state's
record of keeping taxes down
and providing tax relief is
dismal, at best. Both these
men know that property
taxes, assessments and ap-
praisals are all based on the
state's own formulas. No city
or county official is allowed
to decide what your property
taxes should be. It's all done
according to formulas crafted
by the state Department of
Revenue and approved by
the legislature itself. The real
estate market is also a driv-
ing force in the equation and
neither city nor county offi-
cials have any authority over
the market. Local govern-


ment only controls the mill-
age rate.
The House and. Senate
leaders have apparently
reached an agreement on a
plan that has been kept from
the public and crafted in se-
cret meetings. What the pub-
lic has been told is that prop-
erty taxes would be rolled
back and increases would be
tied to the growth of each
landowner's personal in-
come. Missing from the plan
is the increase in sales taxes
to offset the revenue loss.
Regarding this major
change in the plan, Rep.
Rubio said, "We don't have
the luxury of a philosophical
discussion on that this ses-
sion." I would ask, 'Why not?'
Why this rush to do some-
thing even if it's wrong? This
is what happened when the
Florida Legislature passed
its insurance "reform" bill,
which has proved to be of no
significant value exactly as
one northwest Florida state
representative warned.
There is another fact that
Rep. Rubio or Sansom failed
to mention. During the leg-
islative session this spring,
state lawmakers voted to
raise property taxes. This
year's state budget, approved
in May, raised property taxes
by 7.2 percent. The increase
is in what's called the 're-
quired local effort' and it or-
ders counties to collect the
taxes for schools. In addition
to that, the legislature
counts on 'discretionary'
taxes from the school dis-
tricts, too. Discretionary
taxes aren't required, but the
state expects them and pro-


vides extra money for coun-
ties that impose them, so
nearly all do, including Wal-
ton County. Statewide, that's
a property tax increase of ap-
proximately $9 billion dol-
lars.
The legislators say that
high property taxes are at a
crisis level. They tell local
government that it will have
to tighten its belt while the
state quietly goes about in-
creasing property taxes. Rep.
Rubio even remarked, "Gov-
ernment has to do the best it
can with what people can af-
ford to send it." And he calls
county government disin-
genuous?

As a citizen, I have been
dismayed over actions of
Speaker Rubio regarding
sanctions against Rep. Don
Brown, whose only crime
seems to have been in point-
ing out flaws in a bad piece
of insurance legislation, and
having the courage to stand
up and ask tough questions
about the impact of illegal
immigration. When I add
that to these misleading
statements regarding prop-
erty taxes, I can only con-
clude that all lawmakers and
citizens must be allowed to
carefully examine this bill
and understand all of its
ramifications before we take
a leap.of faith that could take
us out of the pan and into the
fire.

Sincerely,
Sara Comander,
Walton County District 4
Commissioner"

YOUNG MAKAYLAH Bourgeois, of Ocala, and her grand-
mother, Brenda Cannon, of DeFuniak Springs. Bourgeois
alerted her grandmother to the dire straits of her great-grand-
mother, Lorene Paul, who lay unconscious on her bathroom
floor.



Young girl saves


great-grandmother


By REID TUCKER
"She is my true hero," said
Brenda Cannon of her six-
year-old granddaughter,
Makaylah Bourgeois.
Early on the morning of
Thursday, June 7, Cannon
heard a cry for help from her
granddaughter. "Grandma,
come quick!" She did, only to
discover her mother-in-law,
Makaylah's great-grand-
mother; 73-year-old Lorene
Paul unconscious and on the
floor of the bathroom adja-
cent her bedroom, wedged
between the bathtub and the
toilet.
Once lifted off of the floor,
Paul had to be held upright
by Cannon. "She was out
cold," she said. "I called for
Makaylah to, get the phone.
S'We need to call 911,'"'she
said. Young Bourgeois
quickly returned, having
called 911. "While I was on
the phone talking to 911, she
was patting me on the back,


telling me 'It's going to be
alright, Grandma, it's going
to be alright."'
When emergency person-
nel arrived on-scene, the
still-unconscious Paul was
taken to HealthMark Hospi-
tal, directly to the intensive
care unit for trauma to the
head.
"She is in ICU, but she is
going to be fine, thanks to my
granddaughter," she said.
Cannon also said that her
granddaughter told her she
learned about calling 911 in
the'event of an emergency at
school before coming to visit
from her home in Ocala. "I
am so proud of her," Cannon
said. "The EMS guys said she
was the real hero. I couldn't
have done it without her."

Bourgeois, who will return
to Ocala on June 15, has been
six years old for less than two
weeks, having had her birth-
day May 30.

SWFD to participate in International Fire and EMS Safety Stand Down


South Walton Fire District
(SWFD) will be participating
in the,2007 International
Fire and EMS Safety Stand
Down, being held the week
of June 17-23. The Stand
Down is sponsored by the
International Association of
Fire Chiefs (IAFC), the Inter-
national Association of
Firefighters (IAFF), and the
Volunteer and Combination
Officers Section (VCOS) of
the IAFC.
SWFD Fire Chief Rick
Talbert said, "We are looking
forward to participating in
the Stand Down. The South
Walton Fire District has par-
ticipated in this valuable pro-
gram since its inception. The
safety of our firefighters is
my foremost responsibility,
to ensure they are safe so
they can serve our commu-
nity when they need it most."
The Stand Down, themed
"Ready to Respond", will fo-
.cus on preparing firefighters
and EMS personnel for their
daily duties by reviewing


their training and the proper
use of equipment to ensure
safe response, mitigation and
return from all emergency
situations. Failure to remain
cautious can cause routine
activities to become hazard-
ous, as has been shown in the
many fire service and emer-
gency medical service line-of-
duty deaths and injuries.
In 2006, 105 firefighters
died in the line of duty. Al-
ready this year, 31 lives have
been lost. The purpose of this
Stand Down is to reduce
these deaths and injuries by

School board upgrades


library systems


By PATRICK CASEY
The Walton County School
Board met on Tuesday, June
5, at the Tivoli Administra-
tive Complex to handle a
litany of items that included
updating the county's school
library system as well as re-
placing Paxton's new gymna-
sium flooring with an up-
grade to correct a discolora-
tion in the original flooring
shipment.
Board members approved
a new electronic library man-
agement system for all Wal-
ton County School District
media centers. The new sys-
tem will manage the check-
ing out of books as well as
allow students to search for
books from home via com-
puter. The system will re-
place an outdated system at
a price tag of over $100,000.
Board members approved
an upgrade of the floor at the
new Paxton High School
gymnasium after it was dis-
covered that the original
floor for the gym was much
darker in color than ex-
pected. Board members ap-
proved the change unani-


mously with an expected cost
between $6,000 and $15,000.
Superintendent Anderson
told board members that
there could be a delay in re-
ceiving the district's school
grades from the Florida De-
partment of Education as it
was recently discovered that
third grade scores from last
year were wrong, due to 'hu-
man error'. "Those scores all
have to be re-graded before
we can check the annual
learning gains, which will
hold up all our elementary
schools."
Board members also ap-
proved an agreement be-
tween the Walton Career
Development Center's nurs-
ing program and First Bap-
tist Church's preschool to use
the school as a clinical train-
ing observation site during
the pediatric nursing clinical.
The board also approved
trip requests for all four
county high schools to send
their boys basketball teams
to Troy University's boys bas-
ketball camp from June 15-
17. A majority of the county's
schools will also take part in
Troy University's girls bas-


ketball camp from June 22-
24. The Freeport High School
yearbook staff will attend a
yearbook workshop in Au-
burn from June 20-22 with
the board's permission.
Several Take Stock in
Children sponsors were hon-
ored at the beginning of the
meeting who help fund the
scholarships through the
Walton County Education
Foundation. The St. Joe
Community Foundation,
Chelco, the Sandestin Hilton,
Senator Don Gaetz, Wal-
Mart and the Hammock Bay
Development received com-
memorative plaques for their
continuing support of local
education. Cindy Jeselnik,
the Take Stock in Children
program coordinator, handed
out the plaques to those in
attendance. Superintendent
Carlene Anderson thanked
the corporate sponsors for
their support.
The next regularly sched-
uled meeting of the Walton
County School Board will be
held on Tuesday, June 19 at
5 p.m. at the Tivoli Adminis-
trative Complex.


TAKE STOCK IN CHILDREN SPONSORS received plaques honoring them for
their support of education in Walton County at the last school board meeting.

It's Your Money!

Do You Want To Know How It Is Spent?

Mossy Head Community Center
Monday June 18 at 6:30 PM


Community Center is the old school building on
south side of railroad on US Hwy 90.

The property tax plan from our state legislators in
Tallahassee means Walton County government will have several

developed now to reflect decreased tax revenues. How will tax
and budget cuts affect you and the government services you
receive? We are all in this together, taxpayers and local
governments.

* If you want to help set priorities for government services,
* If you want officials to know which government services
are important to you,
* If you want to say where your tax money should be spent
or NOT spent,
* If you want government by the people,
* If you want to be part of a team effort to make our county
the best it can be,

THEN ATTEND THIS COMMUNITY MEETING

cation (DOE) wants to re-
score last year's third-grade
reading test because it
thinks scores were artifi-
cially high.
School grades had been
expected this week but now
likely won't be released un-
til at least the end of the
month. An advisory panel
appointed by the DOE to
help deal with the third-
grade problem will meet for
the second time this week.
That meeting will be to con-
sider how to calculate school
grades, school progress un-
der the national No Child
Left Behind Act, and teacher


bonuses available under a
new law. All those programs
require both years' scores.
The committee, made up
of superintendents, school
testing administrators and
even a few FCAT critics, was
pulled together to help the
department deal with the re-
alization that last year's stel-
lar third-grade scores now
appear to be a mistake in the
test, not the result of a great
performance by the kids.
At last week's meeting,
one panel member suggested
school grades be calculated
without the third-grade
scores. Students in third-


through 11th-grade take the
Florida Comprehensive As-
sessment Test, a series of ex-
ams in reading, math, sci-
ence and writing.
Since improvement is de-
termined by comparing
scores on a year-to-year ba-
sis, an error from a preced-
ing year could cause drastic
differences in the interpreta-
tion of the data from the cur-
rent year. Funding is based
upon school and score im-
provements, therefore call-
ing the entire system being
used into question.
Federal law requires that
students be tested annually


to determine reading and
math skills, but leaves it to
each individual state to de-
vise the exam. Critics have
accused some states of devis-
ing easy tests so that is ap-
pears students from that
area are doing better than
they are.
A TIME magazine cover
story on No Child Left Be-
hind (June 4, 2007
edition)reports improvement
in math scores, but little to
no improvement in reading
scores across the nation. The
report also showed an aver-
age gap of 40 points between
state and national fourth-


grade reading test scores,
lending some credence to
state-designed tests showing
inflated scores compared to
federal test results.
The state of Florida ranks
29th out of 50 states in test
scores based on the state's
own tests. That may not be a
worthwhile comparison be-
cause each state designs its
own state test. Florida is tied
for 28th when considering
federal test results from
2005, with scores.more than
40 percent lower for fourth-
graders in reading than on
Florida's own state devised
test.

the Emerald Coast's Senior
Spirit program will present
a free seminar on "Long-
Term Care: Planning Your
Future, Protecting Your
Family", presented by Frank
Sauls, certified senior finan-

Financial Group.
The seminar will take
place on Monday, June 18, at
10 a.m., in the Suite 3 Con-

Key topics include the real
costs of long-term care, in-

available to help protect your
retirement savings and your

Sacred Heart "Senior

warning. The good news is
that painless screening can
help identify problems that
can lead to a stroke before it
is too late.
Screenings are fast, pain-
less and low cost. They test
for blocked Carotid arteries,
abdominal aorta aneurysms,
and hardening of the arter-
ies in the legs. Bone density
screening is also offered to
assess the risk of osteoporo-
sis.
These screenings are im-
portant because of the silent
and often debilitating nature
of the conditions. The major-


ity of strokes are caused by
plaque build up in the walls
of the arteries. The abdomi-
nal aorta is the largest artery
in the body, and a weakness
in the walls of the artery can
cause a ballooning called an
aneurysm, which can rup-
ture. A ruptured aneurysm is
generally fatal. Peripheral
arterial disease or PAD is
also known as "hardening of
the arteries." Sufferers have
a 4-6 fold increased risk of
cardiovascular disease. Risk
is evaluated through a mea-
surement called the "Ankle-
Brachial Index," which is ob-
tained by reading the systolic

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, JUNE 14, 2007


Threats report leads to shooting


BOOKED WITH AS-
SAULT, BATTERY is
Samuel David Blackmon Jr.


The DeFuniak Springs
Police Department (DFSPD)
reported an incident involv-
ing an officer discharging his
firearm. The incident took
place on June 9 at the High-
lander apartments on North
20th Street in DeFuniak
Springs.

The police received a call
from a complainant at the
apartments, alleging that a
neighbor had made threats of
violence. The neighbor ap-


peared, and reportedly began
yelling at the officer and the
caller. The officer, Rodney
Boblitt, attempted to calm
the neighbor, but the man
reportedly "aggressively
boasted that he would go get
his gun and kill both Officer
Boblitt and the complain-
ant." The neighbor began to
leave the area, but Boblitt
stopped him. The man con-
tinued to try to leave, saying


he was going to "get his gun
to return to shoot."
Boblitt drew a Taser aid
fired, with no effect. The sus-
pect fled into a wooded area,
followed by Boblitt and an
assisting officer, John Pow-
ers. Boblitt reported encoun-
tering the suspect again, fir-
ing a second Taser shot,
again with no effect. Boblitt
then drew his pistol and fired
one round. The shot missed,


and the suspect reportedly
continued shouting "Kill me,
kill me!" Eventually, the sus-
pect complied with the offic-
ers and was taken into cus-
tody.
According to procedure,
Boblitt was relieved of duty
for the remainder of his shift.
A preliminary investigation
into the discharging of the
firearm found that no policy
had been breached, and


Boblitt was allowed to return
to active duty the following
day. A full investigation is
pending.

The suspect was identified
as Samuel David Blackmon
Jr., 49, ofDeFuniak Springs.
He was booked with assault
and battery on a law enforce-
ment officer, resisting an of-
ficer with violence, and as-
sault on the complainant.

PINCH
FROM FRONT
of the January 29, 2008
presidential preference pri-
mary. Thus, any increase in
homestead exemptions
would not be calculated in a
property owner's 2007 tax
bill.
It would call for a mini-
mum exemption of $50,000,
with 75 percent of the first
$200,000 in property value
exempted, and 15 percent of
the value between $200,000
and $500,000.
There would also be addi-
tional exemptions for low-in-
come seniors, affordable
housing, working water-
fronts, and tangible personal
property.
"It doesn't sound like a
major amount of money that
would hurt us," said Sara
Bowers, DeFuniak Springs
finance director. "We haven't
relied on ad valorem taxes for
our budget. We haven't even
increased our millage rate
since the late 80s."

Carillon Historical Park a gathering of Dayton history


By BRUCE COLLIER
Carillon Historical Park is
one of the most- visited sites
in the Dayton, Ohio, area.
Since its opening in 1950,
generations of schoolchildren
have trooped off of buses to
tour the grounds. The caril-
lon itself, dedicated by park
founder Col. Edward A.
Deeds in 1942, is to Dayton
what the Empire State
Building is to New York, an
icon of the city.
Carillon is also one of the
most easily managed parks.
The park covers 65 acres,
situated between the Great
Miami River and a moraine
- an accumulation of earth
and rock carried and depos-
ited by glacial movement.
Access and admission tickets;
can be made through the
Kettering Family Educatiori
Center, a combination rest
area, gift shop, and meeting
house for park visitors.
The exhibits at the park
consist of historical build -
ings, some actual, some re:-
produced, as well as build-
ings housing artifacts and
educational exhibits. There
are picnic areas, plenty of
trees, and a cafeteria. The
latter, Culp's, is built iin
honor of the original, fo r-
merly located in downtown
Dayton, which operated in
the 1930s and '40s. All build-
ings can be reached by a
walkway, and all are clearly
labeled. Purchase of a ticket
buys you a park guide, with
a map and information about
each exhibit. Some of the ex-
hibits feature docents, who


are happy to conduct tours
and answer questions.
The tour began with a
visit to a wagon shed, hous-
ing an 1843 Conestoga
wagon and 1870 Concord
coach, both straight out of
your favorite John Ford
movie. There was also a 1900
surrey, sans fringe'on top.
An old waterwheel pow-
ered gristmill was next, fol-
lowed by the John W. Berry
Sr. Wright Brothers Aviation
Center, a centerpiece of the
park.
The center houses several
exhibits, one a reproduction
of Wilbur and Orville
Wright's cycle shop. The shop
and adjoining aviation center
were seemingly empty, but a
guide, Dick Bridgman, soon
emerged from somewhere.
"Hello," he smiled. "You
want the full tour?" There fol-
lowed a tour for one, starting
with the cycle shop.
Before getting into the air,
the Wrights enjoyed careers
designing and building bi-
cycles and operating a print-
ing shop. The shop contains
one of only five known ex-
amples of Wright-made bi-
cycles, the "Van Cleve," a de-
luxe machine priced to sell at
$33. This was in a time when
newspapers cost a nickel,
pants $3, and mens' suits
$15.
The center has a separate
area for the printing exhib-
its, including samples of the
Dayton Tattler, a weekly
published by the Wrights and
written by their friend, poet
Paul Laurence Dunbar. A cel-


ebrated figure in the Dayton
area, Dunbar was one of
America's first blaqk poets,
and the Tattler a pioneer in
periodicals serving Dayton's
black community.
The Wrights' efforts to
build the better bike led
them to begin fiddling with
kites and more sophisticated
aerodynamic studies. The
shop exhibit contains one of
the earliest known
windtunnels, designed and
built by the brothers to test
their innumerable wing-
warp prototypes.
Bridgman takes his one-
man entourage into a dark
theater called "the Object
Show." There's a stage,
frames, some stuff onstage,
and rows of wooden pews for
an audience. No actors.
Bridgman flips a switch,
then excuses himself. "I'll be
outside," he says.
The theater darkens, and
the show begins. The Object
Show is a highly-condensed
presentation on the aviation
career of the Wright Broth-
ers, including a brief account
of their family and prelimi-
nary work in bicycles and
printing. As advertised, it's
all told by objects, with short
film clips and photos, music,
and a voiceover narrative. Bi-
cycle wheels spin, boxes rise
from the stage, propellers ro-
tate, photos are illuminated,
all on their own. It's a stage
manager's dream, the Actor-
Free Theater.
At the end, Bridgman of-
fers a few glosses on the
show, including what he says


is probably an apocryphal
story about Orville Wright
and a policeman.
"Orville raced," says
Bridgman. "It was said that
he had a 'need for speed."'
Once, later in his career,
Orville was driving home
from Indianapolis, appar-
ently exceeding the speed
limit. A policeman ordered
him to pull over.
Thinking he was being
funny, the cop sarcastically
asked, "Mister, where's your
pilot's license?"

Orville duly produced his
government-issued license,
bearing his name and "Num-
ber 1."
"Probably just a story,"
says Bridgman.
The tour ends with a look
at Wright Flyer III, housed
in a sunken exhibit area.
The model looks very much
like the first plane (the Kitty
Hawk model), but Bridgman
explains some of the design
differences. The propellers of
the Wrights' aircraft were
wooden, handcarved and
shaped by the brothers from
extensive preliminary calcu-
lations. The measurements
made on their first propeller
protoypes were reportedly so
accurate that the props
worked perfectly, first time
out.
Measure a hundred times,
cut once.
From the aviation center,
the walk continues through
an 1870 wooden, covered
bridge, transported from its
original home in Greene


County and a lock from the
Miami and Erie Canal, sit-
ting in the original 1825 ca-
nal bed that runs through
the park.
Past the lock is an 1881
Morrison iron bridge, built by
David Morrison of Dayton's
Columbia Bridge Works. The
bridge leads to another large
building, the James F. Dicke
Family Transportation Cen-
ter. The center houses an
1835 locomotive, a1903
summer trolley, 1904
Kuhlman Interurban car,
1923 Baltimore & Ohio Rail-
road caboose, 1903 Barney
and Smith railroad car, a
1949 Marmon-Herrington
Trolley coach, and an RTA
supervisor's booth.
Exiting the center, the
walkway goes past the Day-
ton cyclery, housing an im-
pressive collection of bicycles,
a railroad watchtower and
station, a reproduction of an
old auto sales building, con-
taining a 1908 Stoddard-
Dayton, 1910 Speedwell, and
a 1923 Maxwell, all Dayton-
made.
Sitting along the walkway
is the Callahan Building
clock, a Dayton skyline fix-
ture for decades, now resting
on the ground. The clock has
four sides, each set to a dif-
ferent time, all significant
points in Dayton history.
A steam engine, Sun Oil
station, print shop, and
World War II-era Navy
WAVES cabin, used in a code-
breaking operation con-
ducted in Dayton, follow
next.


The oldest structure on":
the park grounds (and in
Dayton) must be Newcom's
Tavern, built in 1796 for Col.
George Newcom. The build-
ing is made from hand-hewn
logs and contains the oldest
existing sign in Dayton,
"painted" with blacking.
Last stop before leaving
the main park area is the
1896 Locust Grove School
No. 12, a one-room school-
house originally serving the
students of Springfield,
Ohio. Rows of wooden desks
face the teacher's desk,
which bears assorted read-
ers and school primers of the.
period.
Outside the mhain area
stands the Deeds Carillon,
park namesake. At 151 feet
tall, it's probably the largest
musical instrument in the
immediate area.
The carillon's first perfor-
mance came on Easter Sun-
day of 1942. Mrs. Deeds
played on the 57 bells. Con-
certs are still held on week-
ends, April through October.
The tower bears a bronze
plaque, inscribed with an ex-
cerpt from Henry
Wadsworth Longfellow's
Civil War poem, "I Heard
the Bells on Christmas Day."
Carillon Historical Park:
is located at 1000 Carillon
Blvd. in Dayton, Ohio. For
more information on hours,
admission prices, and spe-
cial events, including "vin-:
tage baseball" games with
the Carillon Green
Clodbusters, call 937-293-

SHAYNE AND BRAND HOLMES are happy to announce
the arrival of their son, Trent Michael Holmes. Trent was
born June 6, 2007, at 6:53 a.m., and weighed eight pounds
and thirteen ounces.


Children need a daddy
Children need a daddy
For many things:
Like holding them high off the ground
Where the sunlight sings!
Like being the deep music
That tells them all is right.
When they awaken frantic withthe terrors of the night.
Like being the great mountain
That rises in their hearts,
And shows them how they might get home,
When all else fall apart.
Like giving them the love,
That is their sea and air,
So diving deep or soaring high,
They'll always find him there.

Day

times 4
By LAKEN DAVIS
When Cameron and
Pamela Haerer were expect-
ing for a second time, they
simply looked forward to
having a second child. In-
stead, the doctor told the
Haerers they were having
twins. Then, later, the doctor
told them they weren't hav-
ing twins. They were having
triplets!
On Aug. 18, 2003, the size
of their family immediately
doubled. Big sister Madeline
had asked for a family of
friends, and that's just what
she got.
"We were in sheer shock,"
Pamela said.
Now, the Haerers, Walton
County residents, have four
daughters, Madeline, 8, and
Hannah, Katherine, and
Allison, all 3. They call it "or-
ganized chaos." Pamela says
they just try to steer it, not
stop it.
Before the triplets were
born, Father's Day was a
simple affair. The Haerers
would go to church and then


THE HAERER FAMILY, Pamela, Cameron, Katherine, Hannah, Madeline and Allison,
looks forward to a family-filled Father's Day this year.


have dinner with Pamela's
father.
Now that the triplets have
arrived, the Haerers still
went to church on Father's
Day, but with the larger fam-
ily, they have a more struc-
tured day and tend to stay
home.
In fact, neither parent gets


much free time these days.
'You have to be committed if
you're going to do it and do it
right," Cameron said.
This year for Father's Day,
the family plans to go to
church, as always, and than
have a picnic with Pamela's
dad and maybe go mudding
in Cameron's jeep.

Resources for Human Development supporting


soldiers with letter writing campaign


By Logan Marie Golden
As people go through life
each day, it is easy to forget
that at the nation is still at
war. There are men and
women overseas fighting to
maintain the American way
of life. What many don't know
is that these soldiers are in
great need. Given only the
barest of necessities to sur-
vive, these soldiers need sup-
plies to continue fighting for
home and safety. Many of
these brave soldiers are very
young. They could be
someone's brother or son.
Some acts of kindness have
already been extended to one
special troop.
Recently, a group of dis-
abled adults located at Re-
sources for Human Develop-
ment (RHD) have been writ-
ing letters and sending pack-
ages to a troop stationed in
Afghanistan. However, that
troop is working on a confi-
dential site and does not have


the privilege of writing back.
Instead, the troop took a pic-
ture showing them holding
the letters, and sent it to
show gratitude that words
could never express. After
receiving the picture, RHD
adopted the troop and con-
tinue to write letters and
send care packages.
Now they need help. Be-
cause supplies are still
needed, all local residents
can have an opportunity to
be a part of this is special
service project. On Monday,
July 2, and Tuesday, July 3,
2007, a stand will be located
in front of DeFuniak Wal-
Mart. RHD will be collecting
supplies and money for the
troops. The troops and RHD
will appreciate any donation
whether large or small.
The supply list includes
toilet paper/facial tissue, dis-
posable razors, plastic silver-
ware, wipes/q-tips, soap/de-
odorant, chapstick, cough
drops, single-serving drink


mixes, word search and cross-
word books, pencil/pens, writ-


tm
qj


ing paper/envelopes, playing snacks/Slim Jims and also
cards, high-carbohydrates the most important supply,


letters from home.

Some people prefer traditional funeral
services. Others prefer cremation.
Some want an elaborate ceremony.
Then there are others who don't want
any ceremony at all. When it comes to
funerals, there are as many options as
there are people. And we take pride in

Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free.
I'm following the path God laid for me.
I took His hand when I heard Him call, I'm free.
Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free,
I'm following the path God laid for me.
I took His hand when I heard Him call,
I turned my back and left it all.
I could not stay another day,
jto laugh, to love, to work or play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way;
I found that place at the close of day.
If my parting has left a void, then fill it
with remembered joy, a friendship shared,
a laugh, a kiss, oh yes, and these.
things I, too, will miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow,
I wish you the, sunshine of tomorrow.
My life's been full, I've savored much, good
friends, good times, a loved one's touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief
don't lengthen it now with undue grief
Lift up your hearts and share with me,
God wanted me now, Heset me free.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, JUNE 14, 2007


Stillness 101

St. Agatha's Episcopal announces new outreach ministry


St. Agatha's Episcopal
Church, at 144 Circle Drive
in De Funiak Sprirgs, offers
to the community ai large a
new outreach ministry titled
"Stillness 101."
The Stillness group meets
each Saturday morning at 10
a.m. in the church (enter at
the red door) and lasts


45 minutes. After a few min-
utes discussion, an audio
tape is played of one chapter
of "Stillness Speaks" by
Eckart Tolle. Then, the group
practices silent meditation
for fifteen minutes in the
manner each individual
chooses. Scientific studies
show that practicing silent


stillness contributes to world
peace because inner stillness
contacts a depth of peace
shared by all, which is be-
yond the restrictions of time
and space. Stillness is world
peace.

Its prescription is Psalm
46:10 "Be still and know that


I am God." Confirmation in
Christ is Luke 17:21 "Be-
hold, the Kingdom of God is
within you." This experience
is pleasant, energizing and
fulfilling.

Everyone is invited to come
and enjoy this valuable out-
reach ministry.


The Pastors Appreciation
Committee and the members
of Union Springs Missionary
Baptist wish to thank the fol-
lowing people who made this
special occasion a success for
our pastor and first lady A.M.
Johnson.
Pastors Jeffery Mills,
Jimmy Jackson and Russell


Hughes. Various family and
friends, Mother Mildred
Wilkerson, Elinor Campbell-
Mayo, Eluira Jones, and Dea-
con John Brown.
The youth had their own
praise dance, and other
youth serving the guests.
There can never be any
event without those behind


the scene, and we wish to
thank the following for all of
the hard work they did; Mr.
Willie Wiggs, brothers, James
and Willie Huffman, Mr. Tom

Thanks to all who came
out to help in the celebro-
tion.

ebration, USMBC would like

turns.

race to run


Paul often took his illustra-
tions from the Grecian
games: "We wrestle," "So
fight." In 1 Corinthians 9:24
we find another reference to
the games and to the
believer's service for Christ.
"So run that ye may obtain."
Christians are to run fairly
and certainly for Christ.
We are to run the course
prescribed. That course for
Christ is settled, fixed and
defined. We are not to run
everywhere. We are to stay in


the Bible way, not the course
of the world. It is the narrow
way, spoken of by our Lord
Christ.
We are to enter the course
correctly. We must be persons
of good report and slaves only
to the Master, not to the ways
of the world. None can enter
except believers, whom the
Lord places in the race, and
every believer is in that race
to run for the Lord Christ.
We are to obey the rules of
the race. There is prepara-
tion and training spoken of
in 9:25. We must avoid all
excesses and things which
compromise our readiness to

serve the Lord Christ. We
will need persistence striv-
ing, determined effort, and
untiring perseverance.
We are to use the tactics
already prepared for us. We
must be free from all encum-
brance by "laying aside every
weight" (Hebrews 12:2). Let
us fix our eyes on the goal of
honoring the Lord Christ. We
run the race in order to honor
the Master, the Lord Christ.
Looking at Hebrews 11, we
see that running by faith is
that which overcomes the
world.
There is an urgent exhor-
tation, "So run." We are to let


faith be eagle-eyed. We must
let hope be radiant and
bright. Prayer should be con-
stantly presented to the offi-
cial of the race, the Lord
Christ. Never anticipate the
crown, but rather run for the
Master, that we may honor
Him.
For Christ, always have
constant striving. To be sure
there is a crown of life for
those who begin in the faith,
yet it is only to be cast at the
feet of Jesus, for He it is who
gave us the salvation
through which we run. Re-
member that we run for the
Lord Christ, nor ourselves.


FATHERS KNOW BEST

Holidays come and are a time of celebration.
Fathers are fathers, then there's the
Daddy of creation.
God puts you here as the head of the family,
the teacher of things and how it should be.
A father knows all, just ask and you'll know.
He can talk a good game and
then to you he'll show.
A provider, leader, comforter,
of whom the family is proud.
Don't be mean or walk around with
your head in the cloud.
Be gentle, kind and stern when you have to.
Sometimes a coach, then referee,
but best is player and do.
We've always, heard that "Father Knows Best."
As you get older you think, dad, give it a rest.
When he is dead and gone, his voice you still hear
If he was a good father, he will always be neat:
Cherish your mother and dad,
and long life you'll see.
You grow up blessed, what they wanted you to be.
Fathers come in all sizes, rich and poor.
If they love God and family,
they'll be blessed for sure.

The man who wore these boots is special to me.
He taught his children love and he gave love in return you
see.
These boots held a man who's faith was strong.
He gave love when you were right and discipline when
you were wrong.
The man who wore these boots read the Bible to his chil-
dren at night.
We didn't go to sleep hearing him curse or fight.
The roughness on the boots reflect the hardwork on your
callused hands.
No, they are not perfect, but hold many lessons, much love,
and many blessings.
These boots have been through cold, sunshine and rain,
They carried a man who saw joy, troubles and pain.
He kept on walking with a big smile, because he knew
Heaven was his gain.
These boots may be worn and ragged but hold ro shame.
They represent great honor for a man Daddy was his
name.
Like these boots, so are our lives since you left us.
We've had sorrow, some joy and laughter, we too show lives
that age has weathered
But one day we will be like these boots Daddy we'll be
together.

By PATRICK CASEY
The end of another school

hope for improvement, for
others, the realization that a

65-30 in the state semifinals,
but the team is consistently
one of the more entertaining
girls' squads in the area to
watch. That should not
change during the 2007-08
season.


No. 4 Freeport's David
Burke- Could the 2006-07
season have been much bet-
ter for the boys basketball
coach at Freeport? Burke
won the Support Profes-
sional of the Year Award dur-
ing the year's Teacher of the
Year Award's voting in Wal-
ton County, coached his team
into the second round of the
state playoffs, won Coach of
the Year honors near unani-
mously in area publications,
his squad had the highest
GPA of any boys team in
Class 2A for the year and he
hosts one of the most success-
ful small-school basketball
tournaments every Decem-
ber. Burke and assistant
Charlie Little have helped
anchor a boys basketball
team that rolls up wins on
and off the court.
No. 3 The Walton golf
team- Stan Bosenberg has


THE WALTON GOLF TEAM earned a berth in the state tournament last fall.


THE PDL GIRLS made their second consecutive trip to the Class 2A Final Four in late
February.


been the Walton golf coach
for nearly as long as Bobby
Bowden has been at Florida
State. Bosenberg struck gold
this last season when his
squad earned the school's
first team trip to the state
golf meet. Paul McClure,
Brett Peterson, Aaron
Timmons, Sean Carter and
Heath Morgan worked to get
Walton through district and
regional competition.
Though the squad struggled
at the Sandridge Golf Club in
Vero Beach, the good news is,
they will return to try and
earn a another trip this fall.
No. 2 Freeport football
defeats Walton- This is the
story of the year for most
Freeport fans. Freeport
edged Walton 13-12 for the
school's.first win in the regu-
lar season over Walton in the
sport of football. Freeport's
Spencer Martin kicked two
field goals and made an ex-
tra point as Freeport held off
Walton 13-12. The Braves
were undone by a pair of
missed extra points in drop-
ping their first ever contest
to the Bulldogs. Freeport
beat South Walton as well to
claim their first county foot-
ball title. Though the football
season did not turn out all
that well for all three county
schools, Freeport did at least
make a little history as Jim
Anderson's squad won the
thriller. The two squads will
play this fall on August 31


with Walton hosting the
event in the regular season
opener for both squads.
No. 1 Paxton baseball
reaches Region final- The
Paxton Bobcats made the
deepest run by a county team
in the state playoffs in county
history under the current for-
mat. Paxton won their dis-
trict tournament, beat
Bethlehem in the first round
of the state playoffs and Tal-
lahassee FAMU on the road
in the second round. The
third round brought Jack-
sonville Eagle's View to Pax-
ton for the Region I final. The
Bobcats hung tough, but
could not overcome an early
deficit in falling to Eagle's
View 8-4. Eagle's View went
on to win their second state
title in three years, with the
Bobcats the only team to


score more than two runs
against the Warriors in the
playoffs.
Paxton coach Jeff Bradley
coaches both the baseball
and boys basketball teams at
Paxton and did a masterful
job in crafting a mix of se-
niors and freshmen into a
solid baseball squad. To put
Paxton's season in perspec-
tive, local fans must realize
of the county's four schools,
the Bdbcats have four play-
off victories in the last four
seasons. Walton hasn't won
a baseball playoff game since
1965 and Freeport, PDL and
South Walton have never
won a state baseball playoff
game. Paxton's run will be
hard to duplicate next season
and stands out as one of the
top athletic achievements in
county baseball history.

"I apologize." Forgive


By CHUCK HINSON
It takes a big man to ad-
mit they're wrong and made
a mistake. It takes a bigger
man, and the support of an
entire university, to openly
apologize for changing his
mind about entering the
NBA pro coaching circuit,
and then go back to his old
job that he abandoned.

Florida's Billy Donovan
took a deep breath, a big gulp
of water, then apologized to
the University of Florida, the
staff, the players, his family
and the Orlando Magic, for
allowing him to step out of
his contract with the Magic
and return to the Gators.
He stood side-by-side with
Florida athletic director Jer-
emy Foley, as Foley an-
nounced that Donovan would
be returning to his position
as head basketball coach. He


agreed to the return and
joins Florida with a new six-
year contract worth $3.5 mil-
lion per year.
For those who are wonder-
ing, Donovan will be paid
more than head football
coach Urban Meyer at $3.25
million a year. He also has a
national championship ring
on his finger.
It is the first time under
the current Florida athletic
director, that a basketball
coach is being paid more
than the current football
coach. Meyer's announce-
ment of a new contract was
also spilled to the press last
Thursday night, as Foley
welcomed Donovan back to
the swamp.

Donovan says he puts the
entire blame on himself
about the decision. After he
signed the contract with the


Magic on June 4, he woke up
the next morning knowing
that he had made a big mis-
take, he said.
The 42-year- old former
NBA player, enjoyed a short-
lived career with the New
York Knicks in 1987-88, and
played 44 games before turn-
ing to coaching as a career
choice.
After Donovan announced
that he would be leaving
Florida, Foley flew to Vir-
ginia to interview and possi-
bly offer the job to one of
Donovan's past assistants,
Anthony Grant. But a phone
call from Donovan's wife
stopped Foley in his tracks.
He returned to the plane 20
minutes later, and never met
with Grant.
It must have been a pow-
erful conversation between
the athletic director and the
coach's wife.


The Magic allowed
Donovan to back out of the
contract and have moved on
by signing contracts with
former Miami Heat's Stan
Van Gundy, to take over the
floundering NBA team.
As for Donovan, he is back
in Gainesville, networking
with all the right folks at
alumni dinners, sporting
events and with the media.
He is on the fast track to re-
gaining his Florida icon sta-
tus.

But can his team, the fans,
his staff and even more so,
the alumni, be assured that
he will not bolt again and
leave the team hanging, es-
pecially when they might be
having an off-season, as they
will probably face this year?
He lost several key players
and will have to rebuild for
the next couple of years to


PAGE 9-B


and forget?


have the team he had earlier
this year, that beat Ohio
State for the NCAA basket-
ball championship.

Despite already signing
the top recruit classes this
year, Donovan has assured
the public that trust is not an
issue when it comes to his es-
tablished players and the
new class. But is it that easy?
Another Florida coach-
must I mention the name
Spurrier who made the leap
to the professional circuit,
learned a little too late, that
the pros are another entirely
other ball game and respect
must be earned from the
players. Especially if you are
a coach and your players
make four times more a year
than you do.
Donovan is hoping that his
return will not have dam-
aged anything that his pro-


gram has built over the past
few years, and that it will
continue to attract the best
recruits for many more sea-
sons. He is relying on his
261-103 record in the past 11
seasons at Florida, and his
record as the school's all-
time winningest coach, to
help heal the wounds of
abandonment. He hopes that
his quick change-of-heart
will show real remorse for
making such a drastic deci-
sion.

Beware Billy! The evil
temptress of the mighty dol-
lar might tempt you again
and this time your allies
might quickly become your
enemies. We all know there
is no worse a punishment
than to be shredded to pieces
by a Gator's chomp and then
to be left in the swamp to
slowly die!!

Florida fires baseball coach


By CHUCK HINSON
Just as the bright lights
and happy smiles were on
the faces of Florida's basket-
ball and football coach, a dim
light and a dark shadow de-
scended over U of F head
baseball coach Pat
McMahon. He was let go by


athletic director Jeremy
Foley last Thursday.

Foley told a news confer-
ence that he had lost confi-
dence in McMahon, and that
he made the decision be-
cause he did not think the
program was headed in the


right direction. Some even
chalk up the latest firing at
Florida to the athletic de-
partment needing additional
funds to pay for their return-
ing basketball coach:,;
McMahon took over as the
Florida coach in June of 2001
and compiled a record of 231-


141-1. He led the Gators to
the 2005 College World Se-
ries championship game,
where they fell to Texas.
Florida has had losing sea-
sons for the past two years.
No announcement has yet
been made'for a replacement
for McMahon.

By RON KELLEY
Walton County was
named after Sam Walton of
Wal-Mart fame. The
Chautauqua building was
built by the Chamber of Com-
merce. DeFuniak Springs
was named after Lake DeFu-
niak and Freeport is not a
port at all. The only college
that was ever in DeFuniak
Springs is a branch of
Okaloosa Walton College.
The Old Spanish Trail is the
name of a big festival in
Crestview, Sam Story was a
traveling storyteller, the only
indians in Florida were the
Seminoles and Walton
County has always been the
same size it is now.
Without history, we might
accept all those silly state-
ments as fact. Without his-
tory, we might never know
anything about the area's
rich, cultural history, how or
from whom Walton County
and its municipalities got
their names, or any of the
other amazing facts about
Walton County's origins.
Without history, local people
would have no reason to be
so intensely proud of their
heritage.
A few books have been
written, but the authors dis-
agreed about some important
details. A few modern schol-
ars profess to know, but af-
ter 100-150 years, even they
are only guessing. Local his-
tory is not taught in local
schools, so children have no
inkling of why this place is
so special to so many. There
is a museum in DeFuniak
Springs dedicated to Walton
County, but it is still young
and growing and doesn't yet
have the pieces needed to tell
the whole story. Visitors and
tourists have little way of
finding out, since there is no
single repository for all the
facts and artifacts, all of the
photos, the memories and the


DEP SECRETARY MICHAEL SOLE takes in the beach view at Grayton Beach State Park
with Park Manager Dale Shingler.



DEP director visits



Panhandle


By JOSHUA SMITH
Florida. Department of En-
vironmental Protection
(DEP) Secretary Michael
Sole made a swing through
the Panhandle last Thurs-
day, including two stops in
Walton County. Sole visited
both Topsail Hill Preserve
and Grayton Beach State
Park.
The secretary was able to
meet the staff, tour the facili-
ties, and talk about the fu-
ture plans of both parks.
Topsail Hill Preserve is
named after the highest
dune on the preserve, and
was taken over by the state
in 1992. Originally a private
development, Topsail Hill is
much more of a park than a
preserve. It contains a camp-
ground area that includes a
swimming pool and tennis


courts. Park Manager
Tommy Ervin said there are
plans to build an additional
16 cabins to the park. The
cabins will be built alongside
the other existing cabins and
the RV park, areas already
disturbed by development.
"We ask for public input (to
ensure construction is eco-
friendly)," said Ervin, "as
well as an advisory group of
city and county leaders. And
we have a staff in Tallahas-
see of trained biologists to
give their input as well."
And being eco-friendly goes
further than just construct-
ing around environmentally-
sensitive areas, said Sole.
"We need to look into alter-
native energy," he said. "In-
.vestment in new energy is an
investment in saving both
energy and money. And some


solutions are perfect for state
parks because of their re-
moteness."
Sole also noted that all new
DEP vehicle orders were for
flex fuel vehicles, which can
run on both standard un-
leaded gasoline, as well as
E85 ethanol fuel. "We need
to provide grants and tax in-
centives to businesses to up-
grade their facilities for etha-
nol," said Sole. "Withtax in-
centives, you can offset 75
percent of the cost of upgrad-
ing."
The secretary viewed the
beach area at Topsail, where
525,000 new sea oats were
planted last year. He said it
takes "a couple of years" for
the oats to take hold to begin
the process of building up

Gulf Cemetery Association looks


By LAKEN DAVIS
In 1915, Gulf Cemetery,
located on CR-393 in Santa
Rosa Beach, was deeded to
the Gulf Cemetery Associa-
tion. In the past few years,
members of the association
have been at odds about
whether to install an ease-
ment that would allow a
group of developers access to
adjacent property. After
much discussion and litiga-
tion, it has been ordered that
the proposed easement will
not be established.
It was also ordered that
the association file to become
incorporated as a not-for-
profit corporation. The board
of directors must prepare
and adopt by-laws for the cor-
poration, which should pro-
vide for the election of offic-
ers and a seven-member
board of directors, with the
election being held no later
than July 31. Until that elec-
tion, the present officers and
board of directors will con-
tinue to serve. By-laws are in
draft, and members say they
are now looking to the future.


On Wednesday, June 6,
members of the association
met at the Santa Rosa Beach
Community Church. It is an
all-volunteer association.
At the meeting, it was de-
cided that a list of the 275 to
300 plot owners and their
addresses will be available
only after the association be-
comes a corporation. Mem-
bers would like to have a list
for communication purposes,
but for the interim board's
protection, the list will not be
available until the associa-
tion is incorporated.
It was decided that a draft
of the new by-laws be avail-
able 30 days before they are
voted on by the members.
It was also decided that for
voting purposes, until a new
board is elected, each prop-
erty owner will have one
vote, no matter how many
plots are owned. That is how
the association has operated,
historically, to prevent one or
two owners from swinging an
election. Because many plot
owners do not live in Walton
County, the elections will be


done through the mail with
written ballots.
The interim secretary,
Anita Sloan, said the best
thing that has come out of
the situation is that it will
get the association incorpo-


rated and will create by-laws.
She said she plans to leave
her position once the new
board is selected. She does
not own a plot in the cem-
etery.
Richard Laverne, a mem-


stories and those that do
exist are not available online.
Scott Brannon wants to
change that. The District 1
commissioner wants to cre-
ate an online archive of in-
formation, maps and photos
that tell the history of Wal-
ton County.
"The goal is this when
you go to the county's official
Website, there will bd a link
showing the county and an:
historic overlay showing
points of interest," he said.
"You could click on Knox Hill
Academy, for example, and
go to a page that would have
a picture, if we have one, and
have information about it, a
brief summary. Our school
district and students could
use this, visitors and resi-
dents, too."
Brannon noted that even
when the facts of history get
recorded, the actual locations
themselves are often lost to
history. The grave site of Sam
Story is orie example. Story,
called Timpoochee by local
Creek Indians, was instru-:
mental in helping whites to
settle this area. After he died,
his remains were moved to
their current location, on pri-
vate property, now deep in
the woods. Brannon says he
wants landowners to underi-
stand that neither the county
or state is looking to take
over these sites or restrict the
rights of property owners.
The aim here is to simply
identify the places ofhistori-
cal interest so that the:
knowledge won't be lost for-
ever.
"Throughout Walton:
County, there are old schools,
churches, cemeteries, saw-
mills and other pieces of liv-
ing history that are basically
lost to us. Today, they may be
nothing more than a concrete
slab, a chimney or what's left

ber of the association, said he
thinks the meeting was a
success. "People started com-
municating," he said. "The
board and the members are
starting to get on the same
page."

campsite goes through a wet-
lands area, but once the new
sites are built, a new access
road to the campsite will go
through highland areas, and
the current road can be re-
claimed as wetlands.
Finally, the secretary vis-
ited Grayton's cabin area, lo-
cated on a formerly platted
subdivision that was taken
over by the state in the 1980s
and converted to a area for
cabins much later. Shingler


said the cabins are booked
months in advance. Unlike
the campground areas, no
pets are allowed at the cab-
ins.

Sole didn't leave without
praise of the Panhandle's
beaches. "This is a truly
natural resource," he said.
"This is a beauty
uncompared in most of the
nation. This is the real

additional dunes, so park of-
ficials are crossing their fin-
gers that no hurricanes will
disturb them.,
The secretary then moved
on to Grayton Beach State
Park, where he first had his
State Parks Passport
stamped by park ranger
Stephanie Burton.
Sole plans to visit every
park in the state in his ten-
ure as DEP secretary. Park


Manager Dale Shingler took
him on a tour of the park to
view the picnic areas, beach
accesses, campground, and
cabin areas.
Shingler said that day-use
of the park is underutilized
because of the free county
accesses, and a new ranger
station was needed as the
staff was essentially sharing
one computer.
The park is also working to


bring beach access up to ADA
standards. Currently, there
is no dune cross-over built,
and there is a debate over
where to build it. A path be-
tween dunes to the beach
with a covered netting on the
ground provides the access to
the beach. This is not up to
standard, but building the
crossover there would possi-
bly disturb the beach mouse
habitat. However, building a
traditional "criss-cross" ac-
cess to the beach would cost
$150,000, be in greater risk
of storm damage, and would


disturb sea turtle habitat.
"This is a great example of
the challenges our park rang-
ers have to deal with," said
Sole. "There's a balance in
preserving the resources
while providing a safe area
for the public to access it." A
solution would be found, he
said, and talks are ongoing.
The secretary then toured
the campground area, which
currently holds 37 campsites
with plans to add 22 more,
as well as a new campground
restroom.

Summer

heat tips
By SHEENA FOSTER
WMBB-TV13
Are residents beating this
heat? If not, they will be vul-
nerable to heat exhaustion or
heat stroke. Both conditions
occur when excessive
amounts of water is lost from
the body.
And that fluid loss can
turn critical if people don't
know what to look for. People
that spend long periods of
time outdoors, like those
working in construction, are
particularly vulnerable.
While the adage, drink
eight glasses a day, may be
easy to remember, not every-
one follows the advice. And
that's why young and old
alike can find themselves in
the emergency room if they
are not careful.
"You definitely wanna try
to take 5 to 10 minute
breaks. Step up to a shaded
area and drink a glass of
water. Wear light colors,
wear hats, hard hats, ball
zaps, anything like that, sun
block is also a great thing.
Sun block needs to be reap-
plied every two to three
hours for a continuous period
f time," said Michelle Hicks,
an ER nurse at Gulf Coast
Medical Center.
Hicks says the center has
become inundated with pa-
tients suffering from heat-
related illnesses.

tips, log on to the American
Red Cross' website.

Sinfonia Gulf Coast announces 2007-2008 season


By BRUCE COLLIER
Sinfonia Gulf Coast's mu-
sic director and conductor
Demetrius Fuller has an-
nounced Sinfonia's 2007-
2008 season. Board of direc-
tors president-elect Traci
Stokes said, "It is an honor
to be able to offer quality en-
tertainment and culture to
our growing and diverse
area."
This season is planned as
part one of "a three-year se-
ries of explorations in music."
Fuller said that audiences
will be presented with "inno-
vative visual elements tai-
lored to these wonderful or-
chestral masterpieces, plus
some exciting surprises...."
The season will commence
on September 22 with
"Cellphonia." The program
offers two works, "Concertino


for Cell Phone, Orchestra
and Audience," by David
Baker, and "Metropolis Sym-
phony," by Michael
Daugherty. Both works are
regional premieres. The
former permits audiences to
keep their cellphones on, as
the symphony incorporates
music by Mozart, Brahms,
Dvorak and Rossini. The lat-
ter is a musical portrayal of
Superman and his friends
and foes.
On December 4, "D'Vine
Intervention" will be a
Christmas-themed concert,
featuring D'Vine, a three-
diva ensemble featuring
Atlanta's Paula McGuire
Saunders, Pamela McGuire
Deas, and Denise Pollard.
On February 2, "Sinfonia
2008: A Space Odyssey" will
spotlight 14-year-old violin-


ist Caroline Goulding.
Goulding is a veteran of
Carnegie Hall, and has per-
formed on several national
television programs. She will
join Sinfonia for a program
featuring "Concerto for Vio-
lin in D-major," by Peter I.
Tchaikovsky, and "The Plan-
ets" by Gustav Holst. Accom-
panying the music will be
live NASA video footage, pro-
jected above the musicians.
The season ends April 19
with "Play: A Video Game
Symphony." Sinfonia and a
guest chorus will perform
music from "a catalogue of
blockbuster video game
titles." The music will be ac-
companied by large-screen
graphics from video game
titles such as "Super Mario
Brothers," "Sonic the Hedge-
hog," "The Legend of Zelda,"


"HALO," and others.
All concerts will be held at
Emerald Coast Conference
Center in Destin, and all be-
gin at 8 p.m. Details and
ticket information can be ob-
tained by logging onto
www.SinfoniaGulfCoast.org,
or calling 267-1478.

of an old wooden building,
but these things are impor-
tant. They can tell us who we
were and helps us to under-
stand who we are and what
we might become," said
Brannon, "and we need an
inventory."
He said the county has
tasked county Citizen Ser-
vices Director Ken Little
with gathering the old pho-
tos and information that
would eventually go into the
historical overlay Web page.
However, Brannon said this
project will succeed only if
the local people join in the
effort. "Sometimes, when a
grandparent or elderly rela-
tive dies, everything in the
attic and closets are simply
thrown out. Or they may
wind up in someone else's
closet as a sentimental trea-
sure, just waiting to be dis-
covered," he said. "If we can
just get people to bring the
photo to us, we can scan it in
to our system and hand the
picture right back. That way,
the family doesn't have to
worry about their family pho-
tos being lost or damaged
and yet nothing will be lost."
For people who do not
wish to keep the photos or
artifacts, Brannon said the
Walton County Heritage
Museum would gratefully
accept such gifts so that the
public could come and see for
themselves. Information
from archived copies of the


FROM FRONT

DeFuniak Springs Herald
and The Breeze, both estab-
lished nearly 120 years ago,
would also be used to create
the county's online history
page. Brannon said he'd like
to see the Heritage Associa-
tion establish museums in
communities throughout the
county that focus on that
area.
"I've often said that the
oldest places in North
America are Pensacola and
St. Augustine. They used to
ride boats instead of cars and
we're right in the middle.
There's as much historical
significance here as there is
anywhere in North America,"
he said. Brannon is an ama-
teur historian himself and
passionate about preserving
as much of local history as
possible. "This is important
because it promotes a sense
of community, a sense of
character. This county is
changing dramatically every
day. We have a great story to
tell and I don't think we've
done anyone justice if we
don't tell it."

To find out more about this
project or to donate photos or
artifacts, contact Ken Little
at Walton County Citizen
Services (892-8530) or Diane
Merkel at the Walton County
Heritage Museum (951-
2127) or the DeFuniak

TiI Art of Billie G frey


THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, JUNE 14, 2007


BILLIE AT WORK in her Blue Mountain Beach gallery. "The best time in my life is right
now," she says. "I am so thankful to the people in this area who have embraced me, my work
and our gallery. I just love this place." When she's not painting, Billie finds time to volunteer
at the Seaside Neighborhood School helping with the art program and Via Colori.


BILLIE GAFFREY, poses in front of the family gallery in Blue Mountain Beach. Gaffrey
opened her first gallery in 1991 at Patron's and quickly made a name for herself along CR-
30A with her whimsical style of folk art. "I'm self-taught," says Billie, "and I like to challenge
myself with new and unique designs."


DAVID AND HEATHER Mandel from Jacksonville have been collecting Billie's art since
2000. "We visit the area once a year and always make a point to stop by the gallery and
purchase something new for our collection," says Heather "We consider this art an investment."


IT'S EASY to see that Billie is as fun-loving as the
characters she paints. "The people in my paintings have big
smiles and are inspired by my family and friends," she says.


BILLIE GAFFREY greets me at the entrance to Gaffrey Art. "The gallery is a working

By LEAH STRATMANN
No one goes to any of the
Ocean's series of movies ex-
pecting to find high drama
and they are not disap-
pointed. After the second out-
ing of the series, which was
confusing and largely unsat-
isfying, except to the actors,
the Ocean's 11, plus two, are
back in Las Vegas with a ven-
geance.
The team of merry prankster
conmen reunites after
Reuben, played by Elliott
Gould, is cheated out of his
share of a new casino by the
vicious Al Pacino, playing an
egomaniacal empire builder
named Willie Bank, who is
prone to naming everything
after himself.- The challenge
is to hurt Bank financially,
since his board of directors
expects big profits and if he
doesn't deliver, he's out.
Leading the charge are
George Clooney and Brad
Pitt, as Danny Ocean and
Rusty Ryan, who continue
the easy back and forth dia-
log so charming in the first
film. Each of the 13 gets his
share of screen time. In or-
der to pull off this stunt, the
guys are forced to enlist the
financial aid of old nemesis
Terry Benedict (Andy
Garcia), who hates Willie
Bank.
The story is solid and be-
lief doesn't have to be sus-
pended, as it would appear
possible to actually pull off
the heist. Through a series of
intricate preparations,
Ocean and team plan to sepa-
rate Willie Bank from a half
billion dollars in three min-
utes. Can it be done? Is this
a crime caper?
Most of the fun is in the
set-up of the con. The Turk
brothers, played by Casey
Affleck and Scott Caan, tone


THIS LITTLE GUY SITS VERY still while waiting to get
his hand painted at the Rosemary Beach Kid's Block Party.
The event drew more than 400 residents and tourists on May
31 and the next is scheduled for the Fourth of July.
For more informaiton, call Hilltop Productions at 951-2148.

down their brotherly bicker-
ing and play a more active
role in this outing. The addi-
tion of David Paymer as a
rater of hotels is a nice sub-
plot as Bank is quite proud
that each of his venues has
earned the coveted five-dia-
mond rating. He even goes so
far as to purchase five dia-
monds for each of his estab-
lishments, which he keeps
hidden away in an impreg-
nable chamber. Along the
way to stealing a ton of
money, the Ocean's gang
make sure this casino and
hotel will never earn that.
rating.
Benedict places an addi-
tional burden on the gang by
demanding that the dia-
monds also be stolen. He is
told it is impossible. He says
get it done and then you can
the $250 million worth of dia-
monds and do what you will
with them. A bonus and an-
other conundrum for the
gang to conquer.
Ellen Barkin makes a nice
return to motion pictures
playing the ever anxious to
please number one to Bank.
Grabbing the arm of a server,
she summarily fires her for
too much body fat. When she
isn't terrorizing the staff, she
is sucking up to the high roll-
ers. She is identified as a
"cougar," a woman of a cer-
tain age who stalks younger
men. Enter Matt Damon,
playing the aide to a high
roller, who must attract the
interest of the cougar.
As with the other two in
this series, Steven
Soderbergh directs it, al-
though you get the feeling
the actors are so comfortable
in the characters, little direc-
tion would be necessary. The
whole gang, from the irre-
pressible Carl Reiner to all


the lesser-known names is
clearly having a ball with
these roles.
The ending is tidy and vio-
lence free and leaves the door
open for more, which is fine
by me. Give me a darkened
theater and two hours to
spend gazing on such hand-
some visages, with a good
yarn tossed in and I'll show
up every time.

has been in the news often
during recent years.
Residents have been vocal
about stormwater drainage
problems in their area, an
area
where the construction of
hundreds of more homes is
planned.
There is also an ongoing
legal effort by the same
residents to obtain
permission to remove a wall
blocking an alternate road
access to the subdivision.
Currently there is only one,
road in and out for residents,
and they have repeatedly told
county commissioners that
the road floods.


"It's a safety issue,"
emphasized Alan Osborne, a
spokesperson for the
homeowners, on June 11.
Osborne noted that an
additional 400 homes are
planned for construction in
two new phases of the
development. "There's
nowhere to put the water
now," he said.
Osborne urged the
commissioners to see that
drainage problems are
addressed before any more
new homes go in. "The time
to fix it is now, not after you
build 400 homes," he said.
The commission imposed a
previous moratorium on
building permits in May
2005. That moratorium was
lifted 'in August 2005
following an agreement
between Walton County, the
developer of the new phases,
and the construction
company. The agreement
called for the elimination of
open ditch drainage in favor
bf an alternate stormwater
drainage system. As part of
the agreement, Olson
Associates, the developer,
and Adams Homes, the
construction company, each
contributed $60,000 funding


for the new drainage system,
which was to cost $250,000.
As part of the August 2005
agreement, the county
agreed to be responsible for
maintenance of the
subdivision roads and
stormwater drainage
system. The work to modify
the drainage system never
got started.
The subdivision lies within
the district of Commissioner
Cindy Meadows. "I think now
we have a real public safety
issue," Meadows told
residents on June 11.
She noted that the 2005
agreement had been based on
a cost estimate by the
county's previous public
works director "that turned
out not to be
correct." The new estimate to
fix drainage problems is in
excess of $3 million. "The
county can't afford to spend
$3 million out there right
now,"Meadows said.
She then suggested.
imposing a building permit
moratorium for new
construction and getting the
developer, homebuilder and
residents together for a
settlement "that most likely
does not include the county."


Her original suggestion was
for a 120-day moratorium
that would carry residents
through the flood-prone
hurricane season.
Mike Burke, interim
county attorney, was more
comfortable with a two-week
moratorium, during which
time county staff could
evaluate conditions in the
subdivision and make a
recommendation as to
whether or not allowing
construction to continue
there would be advisable.
The moratorium applies to
construction in phases I-B
and 2-C within the
subdivision.
Meadows' motion for the
two-week moratorium was
approved 4-0, with District 3
Commissioner Larry Jones
abstaining due to a business
affiliation with Adams
Homes, although he has
stated he has no involvement
with
this particular project.
The commissioners also
set a special meeting devoted
to the Driftwood Estates
matter, which will take place
at 5 p.m. on June 28 at the
South Walton Courthouse
Annex. The meeting is open
to all interested parties.
