Talking tax


cuts and


budget cuts


By LAKEN DAVIS
Recently, the Florida Leg-
islature approved a property-
tax cut plan that requires
city and county governments
to make budget cuts. This
will result in governments in
Walton County having less
money to spend on current
services and programs.
Monday evening, a meet-
ing hosted by the Walton
County Taxpayers Associa-
tion (WCTA) at the Mossy
Head Community Center,
sought input from local citi-
zens about budget priorities.
The meeting also featured a
brief look at the highlights of
new property-tax plan by
State Representative Don
Brown, Along with a roomful


of citizens, several elected of-
ficials also attended, includ-
ing county commissioners
Larry Jones and Sara
Comander, Walton County
School Board member
Sharon Roberts and Paxton
Mayor Wanda Smith.
The meeting was to also
allow community members
to have input regarding
which government services
they feel are most important.
The association's president,
Bonnie McQuiston, said, "To-
night begins a new day and
a new way."
Rep. Brown said the final
plan was very different from

at the Walton County Taxpayers Association meeting that was
held Monday night at the Mossy Head Community Center.


By BRUCE COLLIER
The DeFuniak Springs Po-
lice Department (DFSPD)'s
first annual "Caring for Kids,
Day" was reportedly a "huge
success." DFSPD Public In-
formation Officer Eddie
Nelson called the June 15
gathering "a wonderful time
for us to visit with area kids
and further promote the im-
portance of child safety."
The event, held at Wee
Care Park on Walton Road,


drew an estimated 500 chil-
dren. Choctawhatchee Elec-

Health Department, DeFu-

Freeport working on growth issues


By BEN GRAFTON
At the Freeport City
Council meeting of June 12,
City Planner Latilda
Henninger reported that the
Comprehensive Plan Evalu-
ation and Appraisal Report
(EAR) team is still at work

and has entered a new phase
to .identify the major issues
that are included in the re-
port.
Henninger also said that
she expected to have the
large scale amendment
which includes material per-
taining to the Cornerstone
and Huff developments sub-
mitted to the Department of
Community Affairs (DCA) by
the end of June.
City Engineer Charles Pe-
ters told the Council that
bids had been received from
ten contractors for the sewer


main crossing of Mallard
Creek. Even though the cost
of a gravity flow system
would exceed the grant mon-
ies available for this job, Pe-
ters recommended the Coun-
cil approve a gravity flow sys-
tem because of its greater re-
liability and lower mainte-
nance requirement. After
hearing from Mayor Mickey
Marse that the necessary
funds were available, the
Council approved the gravity
flow design.
Peters said that the back-
up pump for the CR-3280 lift-
station is being installed. Pe-
ters continued by saying
work on the master lift-sta-
tion is expected to be com-
plete in "a couple of weeks."
Referring to the U.S. 331
North sewer project, Peters
said that a site for a lift-sta-


tion for this system is
needed. He is talking to the
Veranda's developers to try to
secure the site: for this sta-
tion.
The Council approved
Marse's request to use sur-
plus funds from the Bay Loop
sewer project to extend the
system to S.R. 20 and then
to the vicinity of the Dayco
property. The Council ap-
proved this request.
Marse said that some de-
velopment orders have been
"on the books" for two years
without progress. He said
that developers either need
to start work or have their
development order cancelled.
With reference to develop-
ment orders, Councilman
Earl King said that in some
cases developers had "gutted
houses" and then left the


shell standing without tak-
ing further action. This
leaves a nuisance and cre-
ates a public safety hazard
on the developer's property.
Henninger added that in
some cases, development
plans had been approved but
fees have never been paid.
Development work is not au-
thorized until payment is re-
ceived. Developers will be
notified by mail that if con-
struction does not commence
within a reasonable time and
in the absence of a request for
extension (which the Coun-
cil may or may not approve)
the development order will
be cancelled.'
In other news, the city will
deal with buildings that have
been gutted or partially de-
stroyed under a city nuisance
ordinance.


Marse asked for and re-
ceived permission from the
Council to develop informa-
tion for a truck that would be
purchased for use in towing
a large city-owned wheel
mounted pump to sites
where it is needed.
Councilman Charlie
Simmons said that the city.
and county group working to
standardize the calculations
used for validating traffic
loading on highway infra-
structure is making progress.'
He hopes a uniform method
will be adopted by the June
21 Council meeting. City
Attorney Clayton Adkinson
presented the first reading of
a parking ordinance provid-
ing a $250 fine for persons il-
legally parked in a desig-

DFS Council's strategic planning goals not met


By JOSHUA SMITH
During a workshop meet-
ing on, the city's strategic
plan, City Manager Kim
Kirby gave DeFuniak
Springs City Council mem-
bers an update of the 11 stra-
tegic planning points of em-
phasis developed last year,


and her efforts to consolidate
this to a smaller list of focus
for the city. Only one of the
11 objectives from last year
was met developing a mas-
ter plan for police and fire
services. The others are on-
going, with most not sched-
uled for completion until


2008.
These strategic plans are
designed to help foresee the
future needs of the city as it
experiences growth. Kirby
said she wanted to condense
the list to bring greater focus
to the strategic plan for the
city in the 2008 fiscal year.


The objectives that had
not been completed for last
year included developing a
specific utility expansion
plan, developing a specific
multi-modal transportation
plan, reviewing and updat-
ing zoning classifications,
building out the airport, re-


vitalizing the downtown;
area, developing an indus-:
trial park, developing a".

ties, reviewing and updating

OWC, Fuller


settle lawsuit


By BRUCE COLLIER
Okaloosa-Walton College's
(OWC) Board of Trustees and
the Northwest Florida Sym-
phony Association, Inc.
(NFSA) have come to a
settlement of the lawsuit
filed last year by the college.
The suit, filed.in Okaloosa
County, alleged "infringe-
ment of common law trade-
mark" and sought "an ac-
counting of profits made" by
the association and by musi-
cal director Demetrius
Fuller, who was also named
in the action.
Fuller was formerly con-
ductor of the Northwest
Florida Symphony Orchestra
at OWC, but left its employ
in early 2006. The lawsuit
alleged that Fuller's subse-
quent formation of the
Northwest Florida Sym-
phony Association, Inc. was
"identical or confusingly
similar" in name to the OWC
entity, and that "confusion"
resulted, specifically in the
area of fundraising.
Fuller is currently conduc-
tor of Sinfonia Gulf Coast, of
which NFSA is the parent
organization. He and the
NFSA board of directors
agreed to pay OWC $5,300,
and to stop using the names
"Northwest Florida Sym-
phony Orchestra" and
"NFSO."
Fuller reportedly settled
the lawsuit, which he was
quoted as calling "frivolous,"
to avoid further expense of
time and money for legal
fees. OWC President Robert


Ham radio
operators
prepare for
emergencies

The Walton County Ama-
teur Radio Club will be host-
ing its annual "Field Day"
event at the Emergency Op-
eration Center (located on.
South Davis Lane) off of
Hwy. 90 east in DeFuniak
Springs. The event will be
held on June 23 and 24, 2007
starting at noon.
This event is a "fun day" for
amateur radio operators to
make as many contacts as
possible for the 24 hours of
operation, and to just have
fun and fellowship. If a disas-
ter hits, amateur radio op-
erators spring into action to
provide communications
when all else fails.
The public is invited to
come and enjoy this event.

countyarc.com


Richburg denied the suit was
frivolous, but both Richburg
'and Fuller expressed satis-
faction that the lawsuit has
been settled.
The sum is reportedly re-
flective of disputed funds
paid to the Northwest
Florida Symphony Associa-
tion in 2005. Payment of the
sum by NFSA to OWC is not
deemed to be an admission
of liability by either party.

was a part of the community,
and has embodied the spirit
of Beefs in the time that they
have been a part of the fam-
ily. "The Fisels are great
people and have done a won-
derful job," she said.
Fisel began his relation-
ship with Beef O'Brady's in
November of 2004. After
signing the franchise agree-
ment in March of 2005, Fisel
has been involved in the
opening of several Beef
O'Brady's restaurants, be-
ginning with the re-opening
of the one in D'Iberville, MS.,
just days after Katrina
caused it to close. That res-
taurant took top honors in
sales this year, too. Fisel has
helped with openings in
Terre Haute, IN., Myrtle
Beach, SC., and Ocala, FL.
"It takes a week to open a
store," Fisel explained, "We
go in and give the new own-
ers a hand and help them to
get theirs up and running
smoothly." Construction for
the local restaurant began in
January 2006.
"We have only been open
for seven months, so this was
really a surprise," claims
Star Fisel. Dwayne added,
"We were truly honored to be
nominated. When they pre-
sented us with the award, I
was at a loss for words."

EDITORIAL COMMENT


The dumbest


laws in America
By RON KELLEY

Frequently on this page, I lament over the addle-
pated, fuzzy-brained, intellectually-challenged men
and women who serve as lawmakers in Tallahassee
and Washington, D.C. However, it's not confined to only
those two places. In fact, some of the world's dumbest
laws have been passed in every corner of the nation.
For instance, It used to be against the law in
Jonesboro, GA., to utter the words, "Oh boy." Oh, boy,
that's a good one oops.
In Hawaii, it is illegal to get a tattoo behind your
ear or on your eyelid unless in the presence of a regis-
tered physician. But you wouldn't believe all the
places on your body you can have a tattoo applied while
being watched by some guy named "Needles."
Attention, choco-holics, Idaho state law makes it il-
legal for a man to give his sweetheart a box of candy
weighing less than fifty pounds. Hehehe, sweet!
A state law in Illinois mandates that all bachelors
should be called master, not mister, when addressed
by their female counterparts. I'm not even going to
comment on that one.
You can get out of paying for a dependent's medical
care by praying for him or her. Perhaps something
along the line of, "I pray that someday you'll find some-
one to pay!"
In Ottumwa, IA., (home of M*A*S*H character 'Ra-
dar' O'Reilly) "It is unlawful for any male person,
within the corporate limits of the (city), to wink at
any female person with whom he is unaquainted." That
answers a lot.
In Kansas, if two trains meet on the same track,
neither shall proceed until the other has passed. I'm
sorry, what was that again?
An ordinance in Murray, KY., says the superinten-
dent of sanitation "shall determine whether a person
is small, medium or large." Why the superintendent
should make this determination is left unsaid, but the
next time your wife asks if this blouse makes her look
too large, you can safely reply, "Not unless the-Murray
superintendent of sanitation says so, dear."
Louisiana law prohibits couples who are shopping
for a new bed from trying it out by making love on it,
or even simulating this activity. And this was enough
of a problem that they had to come up with a law
against it?
In Portland, ME., shoelaces must be tied while
walking down the street. But won't you probably fall
over if you try that?
In Boston, MA., it was once illegal to take a bath
unless instructed to do so by a physician. Oooh, that
law stinks!
In Michigan, it is legal for a robber to file a law
suit, if he or she got hurt in your house. Does it count
if I'm the one who hurts him?
' In Merryville, MO., women are prohibited from
wearing corsets because "the privilege of admiring the
curvaceous, unencumbered body of a young woman
should not be denied to the normal, red-blooded Ameri-
can male." Now we know why they call it Merryville.
Finally, in case you thought only other states had
dumb laws... in Pensacola, a women can be fined (only
after death), for being electrocuted in a bath-tub be-
cause of using self-beautification utensils. Boy, doesn't
that just curl your hair!

Letters to the Editor


Editor,
In your Editor's comment in the Herald of June 7, you men-
tioned Ted Kennedy and Mel Martinez supported the immi-
gration of illegals into the U.S. We can't do much about
Kennedy since being from Massachusetts, we can't vote for
nor against him. We have two senators from Florida as does
every other state. Martinez is a Republican and Nelson a
Democrat. Since a senator's term is six years, we rarely get to
vote on them.
I watched the Senate vote down cloture on the immigration
bill recently and I think Nelson also voted with Martinez and
Kennedy. There are two Nelsons in the Senate, one from Ne-
braska and one from Florida, so I might have mistaken one
for the other.
So, how did Florida's Senator Nelson vote? How does Nelson
stand on the immigration issue? He has kept a low profile on
immigration.
Allowing relatively uneducated, low-skilled workers to flood
the U.S., each family with a horde of children, is a mistake.
There is no way the U.S. can continue to absorb the excess
population of Latin Americans without serious harm. These
people have to find a way to limit the growth of their popula-
tions and not use the U.S. as an escape valve.
Sincerely,
Charles F. Adams
North Walton- County

Editor's note:
Sen. Bill Nelson, (D-FL) voted on Senate floor in favor of
amendment to expand chain migration. Sen. Nelson voted in
favor of Sen. Hillary Clinton's amendment (SA 1183) to S.
1348 to significantly increase legal immigration by adding
an unlimited number of spouses and minor children of lawful
permanent residents to the uncapped immediate relative cat-
egory that currently is for the spouses, minor children and
parents of US. citizens only. The spouses and minor children
of lawful permanent residents currently are allocated some
87,000 visas each year. The Clinton Amendment failed by a
vote of 44 to 53.
Voted on Senate floor in favor of amendment to increase chain
migration. Sen. Nelson voted in favor of amendment to in-
crease chain migration. Sen. Nelson voted in favor of the
Menendez Amendment (SA 1194) to S. 1348 to increase near-
term legal immigration by more than 100,000 each year by
changing the cut-off date for reducing the "backlog" of family-
sponsored immigration applicants from May 1, 2005, to Janu-
ary 1, 2007. The Menendez Amendment failed by a vote of 53
to 44.
Voted on Senate floor in favor of increasing chain migra-
tion. Sen. Nelson voted in favor of a motion to invoke cloture
on the substitute amendment (SA 1150) to S. 1348, a bill to
increase chain migration by approximately 251,000 per year.
The motion to invoke cloture would have ended debate on the
proposal and limited further discussion of amendments to a
previously-agreed upon set of proposals thus a vote in favor
of cloture was effectively a vote in support of the amnesty-
guestworker bill. The motion to invoke cloture failed by a vote
of 45 to 50.


Editor:
As reported in the media, the proposed real estate tax roll-
back would primarily impact funding to local schools. As such,
this brings up the issue of the Florida lottery.
We all know know that the Florida lottery mandate was a
poorly written document when it was passed by\state law
makers. Subsequently, the language allowed lottery funds to
be sidetracked for special interests. Apparently, this also in-
cluded funding "educational" seminars of questionable value
for congressmen, state employees, aides and their relation-
ships and, as I understand this situation, trips are held in
what I consider seemingly exotic location such as Hawaii.
Perhaps it is time to revisit both the original purpose of
the lottery and audit the fund's-allocations. Many states have
sponsored and promoted their lotteries by implying that
theirs will not be like the Florida lottery. Their funds will be
used for public schools and not undefined concepts of educa-
tion or endowments for private companies alleging educa-
tional programs, materials and/or sponsored travel.
Some groups are concerned about the issue of lotteries
and gambling. But House sponsor Julio Robaina and other
law makers have raised the stake. This June, they proposed
a measure to give the cities the opportunity to create school
revenue via various Las Vegas-style casino games. This pro-
posal previously has been circulated in Panama City as a
draw to deal with their uncontrolled over-development and
subsequent tax and vacancy revenue loss.
All this suggests that rather than adding more gambling
that tends toward "organize crime", why not push our law-
makers clean up the big State gambling ring we already have,
the lottery. Let's take the lottery revenue out of the politician's
pockets and put it back into the schools.

Editor,
I am certain that I am not the only American who is tired
*of hearing our government say over and over again that we
are "at war" in Iraq. We are not at war. We are running a
national police force-patrolling the streets and roadways of
Iraq in an effort to quell violence between warring sects. We
invaded Iraq over four years ago. Since then, we have de-
posed its leader and installed a new government with a new
constitution. It is capable of governing itself with help, if
necessary, from the international community. We are not now
"at war" with the government of Iraq or with the people of.
Iraq. We are policing an internal civil conflict, which is draw-
ing outsiders from other countries like Iran, Syria and Saudi
Arabia who want the opportunity to kill Americans.
We simply cannot continue to act as a police force indefi-
nitely. As long as we are willing to do that job for the Iraqis,
they will let us. As long as we are there, outsiders will con-
tinue to go there to try to kill our people.
Please, Mr. Bush and Mr. Cheney, do not continue to pro-
pagandize to the American people that we are in a "war" in
Iraq. Show us some respect for our intelligence. We invaded
Iraq and we won that war. Now we need to get out and let
the Iraqis run their own country-either on their own or with
help of a multi-national U.N. peacemaking force. We can con-
tinue to provide them with aid and assistance, as we do for
so many countries, without serving as their domestic police
force. '
Please show support and respect for our troops in the best
possible manner by getting them out of the country of Iraq
and out of harm's way.

Editor:
Last week, Senator Trent Lott of Mississippi made my
day with his statement, "Talk radio is running America. We
have to deal with that problem." What broughtbrought about this
great statement? He's really ticked off the illegal alien am-
nesty bill has not passed the Senate.
What he's really saying is talk radio is waging a tremen-
dous battle over illegal aliens benefiting from breaking the
laws of the land, and that does not fit with the will of big
business backed by big government. Now Senator Lott and
the old guard, supported by the White House, have resur-
rected amnesty for over 12 million illegal's by promising some
funding and enforcement of the law. I wonder why now fund-
ing is being promised and included in the bill when before,
the bill only stated the various enforcement provisions were
subject to available funds?
I'm happy with the statement by Senator Lott. I'm hoping
this will drive those who have paid little attention to the
illegal alien issue to be curious enough now to listen to the
big, bad talk radio. Maybe they will hear the other side of
the liberal left and start saying 'wait, not so fast, give us the
whole story both good and bad.' What's coming out of the
likes of Senator Lott and Company is only what they want
the public to hear. Conservative talk radio is giving the other
side with facts that are different than the main stream me-
dia. If you haven't been listening to this alternative source
to the liberal media blitz tune, into FM 93.7 during the day.
There are a number of talk shows debating a number of is-
sues that are impacting our nation.
Having spent over 32 years on the Gulf, Mexican, and Ca-
nadian border dealing with both legal and illegal aliens, I
have very little confidence the new 'comprehensive' approach
will result in control of the border or illegals coming to or
already in the country. The 1986 bill was so outrageously
mismanaged and under-funded, why should we believe the
new deal will be any better? Get the borders under control
and prove to the American people.the government means
business, then come back and let's consider more of the 'com-
prehensive' issues.
Contrary to talk radio being the problem as enumerated
by Senator Lott, it's the American people who are saying 'no'
to rewarding illegal behavior. But since when does govern-
ment listen to the people when big business and secular pro-
gressive liberals have joined and are the true driving force?
Yet, whether the bill passes or fails, the fight will con-
tinue.

Paxton no longer down in the dumps over landfill
i ',N


\By REID TUCKER
There were only two pre-
sentations brought before the
Paxton Town Council at the
!monthly meeting on the
evening of Tuesday, June, 12.
!The council quickly got down
,to the business of hearing a
[waiver request on a water
bill, a developing trend at re-
cent monthly meetings.
The citizen seeking the
waiver was a new customer,
almost complicating the pro-
cedure of reverting the bill to
!the average monthly usage.
Instead, the Council deter-
mined that average con-
sumption based on size of the
home and number of outlets
is approximately 6,000 gal-
lons, or $24 per month. The
decision to pass the one-time-
only waiver went through
unanimously.
The next item heard by
the council delivered a little
more debate. The question
involved local resident Will-
iam Courtney, who offered


his services, free-of-charge,
to the city by way of manag-
ing the city landfill one Sat-
urday per month.
Debate began almost im-
mediately, with Councilman
Bill McRae opposed to the
proposition, and fellow Coun-
cilman Joe Melton offering to
stay at the landfill's main of-
fice on the second Saturday
of the month. The Council
shut down the dump's opera-
tion in the last few months
due to misuse of the premises
by various individuals who
the council said,'"dumped
metal, refrigerators, and
computers," in undesignated
areas, or when accosted by a
locked gate, simply dropped
truck beds-full of refuse or
yard litter "at the doorstep."
The debate arose and cen-
tered around who should be
admitted to use the dump on
the proposed Saturdays.
Melton suggested that Pax-
ton city water bill receipts be
used to determine if those


"If they don't have a water bill (receipt)
they won't get in," said Joe Melton. Bill McRae agreed,
"The rules should apply to everyone, with-
out concession."


who arrived with trash were,
in fact, city residents, "If they
don't have a water bill (re-
ceipt) they won't get in," said
Melton. Councilman Bobby
Kemp asked whether that
would be needed if the per-
son on duty at the office knew
them personally as a resi-
dent, but McRae decided to
err on the side of parity, say-
ing that he felt, "the rules
should apply to everyone,
without concession."
Melton also suggested
that a set of rules be posted
should the Council approve
the plan, both at Town Hall
and at the dump. "Just so
there would be no misunder-


standing," he said. Council-
woman Anne Sexton ap-
proved of the idea and sug-
gested including hours of op-
eration in with the rules of
conduct. She said that there
needed to be a timetable,
that "people can work around
a schedule." However, she did
express concern over
whether the same individu-
als who dropped trash at the
gate would do so again, a
question that, based on the
discussion that followed,
weighed heavily on the
minds of the council mem-
bers. Ultimately, the
decision was made to give the
plan the go-ahead, after a 4

to 1 vote. Melton said, "I'm
for trying it. If it doesn't
work, we can always close it
again."
The landfill will be open
twice per month, starting in
July, on the first and third
Saturday of the month. The
possibility of the dump being
open more than two times a
month is still open. Melton
said this was a distinct pos-
sibility "if more help becomes


available." Councilman
Bobby Kemp said rhetori-
cally, "It would be nice if
people would only use the
place for its intended pur-
pose."

- DayCo., Inc. also offers
trash pickup services once a
month, along with county
pickup services, who will col-
lect people's garbage upon
request.

Paxton




plans on



cleaning



house


By REID TUCKER
Paxton Mayor Wanda
Smith discussed the city's
yearly financial yearly audit.
The increasing demand for
city services is straining the
city budget. Smith expressed
a sense of disheartenment,
saying, "(The) only thing I
would know to do would be
to raise rates. I don't know
of any way to lower expendi-
tures. I'll expect some ideas
from the Council next month
at the meeting."
When it came time to hear
departmental reports, each
member of the Council had a
few issues to bring forward.
For Councilman Joe Melton,
it was the contractors in
charge of constructing the
new water tank at the city's
pump house. These contrac-
tors had allowed their li-
censes appropriate for work
in Walton County to expire
without the notifying the
council. Melton suggested
that they hire a new contrac-
tor. Councilman Bobby Kemp
said that the old ones "didn't
do their job." The Council de-
cided to readdress this item
at the next month's meeting.
Councilwoman Jenice
Armstrong noted that "every-
thing is going pretty well" on
her end, but said "the floor
of the agriculture building is
filthy," although it was
cleaned six weeks ago, at a
cost of nearly $300. Kemp,
who recently had a family
reunion at the building, said
that he was "honestly
ashamed of it."
Councilwoman Anne Sex-
ton suggested the hiring of a
part-time cleaning person for
the purpose of keeping up the
Town Hall, because the
Council on Aging requires
that it be cleaned daily. Sex-
ton says that this isn't being
done by the current staff,
who only cleans the building
one time per week. Upon
hearing this, William
Courtney, who had volun-
teered his services at the city
landfill, offered to clean to
floor of the agriculture build-


ing, also free of charge. He
said that he had the neces-
sary equipment and would do
the job himself for free, if the
Council would pay for the
cleaning supplies. The Coun-
cil accepted.
Mayor Smith discussed
the inter-local agreement re-
garding maintenance of city
property, currently under-
way. Smith said that the "at-
torney has reviewed our pro-
posal" and that if the Coun-
cil wishes to go ahead with
the plan, they could "resub-
mit to the county for final ap-
proval." Smith asked, "Can
we really expect someone
from the county to come up
here and clean up. the bath-
rooms?" Apparently not, as
the Council voted to move
forward with the plans
unanimously.
Councilman Bill McRae
presented his report on the
difficult parking situation
arising from the registered
wetlands behind the Paxton
Little League baseball com-
plex. He said that, according
to his contacts within the
EPA, registered wetlands
"can never be disturbed," un-
less, "the Council wants to
pay $1 million in fines." The
alternative would be to sup-
ply the EPA with 10 acres of
other land for every one acre
of wetlands, and considering
the sheer number of the acre-
age under discussion, the
plan to develop the land as a
parking lot was dropped, in
spite of the desperate need
for more parking within the
city limits.
Concern was expressed
over the new Paxton High
School gymnasium, which,
according to several council
members, has "more bath-
rooms than nearly the whole
rest of the school," and the
almost-assuredly higher wa-
ter bill that would be associ-
ated with the finished build-
ing. Councilman Kemp said,
"There were a lot of people
who had a bitter taste in
their mouth over the new
sewer."

Anderson swaps principals


among district schools


By REID TUCKER
At noon on Monday, June
18, the Walton County School
Superintendent Carlene
Anderson made her list of
administrative personnel
relocations public infor-
mation.
Several of the results were
less than surprising, while
other decisions may have
raised a few eyebrows and
some came seemingly out of
nowhere.
For starters, Michael
Anderson is out of Paxton,
with Sonya Alford leaving
Maude Suanders Elementary
to take his place as principal.
Anderson has been
transferred to Freeport
Middle School as an


administrative assistant,
which means that Freeport
Middle School Assistant
Principal Charlie Morse will
be headed somewhere else.
The two positions are
inherently different from
each other. An administrative
assistant has most of the
same responsibilities as an
assistant principal, but
without the title or the pay
associated with the position.
In Walton County, there
cannot be both an
administrative assistant and
an assistant principal at the
same school, hence the
confusion as to what will
become of Morse.
Tracey.Dickey moves from
Freeport Elementary to
Maude Saunders for


principal's duties, now that
Alford is being moved to
Paxton.
The real bit of news comes
in two waves. First, the
switch of Russell Hughes to
Walton High School and Mike
Davis to the Walton Career
Development Center. I t
was thought that Davis and
Hughes might swap places
entirely, sending Davis back
to Walton Middle, his old
stomping ground, or perhaps
to Paxton School, where he
coached for several years in
the past.
Second are the three
schools in the district with 'to
be announced' posted by their
names. Walton High School,
Freeport Elementary School,
and Bay Elementary School


were without administrators
for the next school year.
At Tuesday's regularly
scheduled school board
meeting, board chairman
Mark Davis suggested that
the administrative changes
be looked at again during a
special meeting on Tuesday,
June 26, because board
members had not had enough
time to consider the changes.
Apparently, the proposed
changes were sent without
notice to the principals and
school board members alike
sometime on Monday
afternoon.
The special meeting will
be at 5 p.m. in the boardroom
of the District offices on Park
Street.

through several incarnations
before being passed by the
legislature.
"The first plan was not
perfect and neither was the
plan we passed, but it was a
good start," he said. Brown
said he realized that the
state had not cut its own bud-
get or made any cuts in edu-
cation. "We have made a
commitment to not cut edu-
cation, but state lawmakers
could make cuts in other ar-
eas and that should be a pri-
ority for next year." Brown
will be leaving office after
this term due to term limits.
WCTA board member Bob
Hudson presented a slide
show that compared past and
recent state and local spend-
ing, tax rates and financial
trends.
Representative Brown
said that local governments
in south Florida have been
abusive regarding property
tax increases, and said
northwest Florida had done
better by comparison.
Several questions were
asked and answered and a
community-opinion survey
was handed out, asking sev-
eral questions about govern-
ment services,'property taxes
and local government spend-
ing. Results from the survey
will be presented as recom-
mendations and general in-
formation once all of the in-
put meetings are held.
. Eddie Nelson, a Walton
County resident and DeFu-
niak Springs police officer,
said, "The meeting was infor-
mative and Brown did an ex-
cellent job of explaining the
legislature." He said Brown
brought out a lot of un-
knowns to community mem-
bers. Nelson said he believes
that budget cuts can be made
without effecting essential
community services.
DeFuniak Springs resi-
dent Robert Nelson also at-
tended the event. He said he
saw a lot of new faces that
aren't normally at commu-
nity meetings. For the tax
changes and budget cuts, he
said that officials will have
to find more efficient ways to
run all aspects local govern-
ment.

The state Legislature
voted on Thursday to ap-
prove a large tax cut in prop-
erty taxes collected by local
governments throughout
Florida. The bill passed the
Senate by a vote of 25-12 and
the House by a vote of 74-43.
Rep. Don Brown (R-DeFu-
niak Springs) and Sen.
Durell Peaden (R-Crestview)
both voted in support of the
bill. As reported in the June
14 edition of the Herald-
Breeze, the bill would require
local governments to admin-
ister a 'rollback rate' on a
bracketed system based on
the increases in the amount
of taxes levied since 2001.
Walton County falls into
the largest rollback bracket,
at a nine-percent rate, de-
spite having the third-lowest
property tax rates in the
state. Additionally, DeFu-
niak Springs city govern-
ment will see a three-percent

were concerned with the cuts

be enacted.

Covenant


By LAKEN DAVIS
Hospice care focuses on
pain control and quality of
life when a cure is no longer
possible. Covenant Hospice
provides physicians, nurses,
social workers, home-health
aides, chaplains, bereave-
ment specialists and volun-
teers, who all work together
to provide care to patients
and their families. This care
includes clinical, emotional
and spiritual support. The
non-profit organization pro-
vides care based on need and
not on ability to pay.
The organization cares for
patients of all ages who are
terminal and have six
months or less to live. The
focus of Covenant is to enable
patients to live as fully and
comfortably as possible. Pa-
tients are provided with dig-
nified, comforting care and
assistance in coping with
end-of-life issues.
Founded in 1983 in
Pensacola, Covenant serves
patients in 35 counties in
lower Alabama and the
northwest and Big-Bend re-
gions of Florida. The organi-
zation cares for more than
1,100 patients daily.
Since January 2007, Cov-
enant Hospice has cared for
23 patients in DeFuniak
Springs and three in Ponce
de Leon.
As Covenant Hospice con-
tinues to serve Walton
County, and the
organization's number of pa-
tients in the area continues
to grow, Covenant may be
looking for a local support
center location, where volun-
teers could hold meetings or
stop in to do paperwork and
use computers.
Patients are usually rec-
ommended to Covenant Hos-
pice by their physicians, but
some hear about it through
word of mouth. Medicare and
many insurance plans may
provide financial assistance
for patients. The 6iorganiza-
tion has even helped a home-
less man who was in need.
"People don't want to die
alone, and they don't want to
die in pain," said Jenni
Perkins, development and
communications manager for
Covenant. Perkins communi-
cates with the media in north
Walton and Okaloosa coun-
ties. She also does

She said patients have a
lot of input for their care.
"We're not there to tell them
what to do," Perkins said.
"We're simply there to pro-
vide care at the end of life."
"The thing that stands out
to me about this organization
is that they really live their
mission each and every day,"
Perkins said. "It's nice to see
an organization that says,
'We're going to do the right
thing because it's the right
thing to do."'
Covenant provides group
grief-support meetings in
DeFuniak Springs on the sec-
ond and fourth Thursday of
each month at the St. Mar-
garet of Scotland Catholic
Church from 10 11 a.m. Af-
ter each meeting, the group
goes out to lunch. These be-
reavement services are open
and free to everyone in the
community, not only those
who knew patients of Cov-
enant.
"For some, it is helpful to
be in a room with people who
have been through the same
thing," Perkins said. "Some-
times you still need to grieve,
but other people are uncom-
fortable with that."
Dolores Milota, a DeFu-
niak Springs resident, has
benefited from the grief ser-
vices provided by Covenant.
Her husband, Bernard,
passed away on June 29,
2006, at the age of 78. While

Center in DeFuniak Springs.
Covenant also has two in-
patient residences that allow


the patient to leave home but
not be in a hospital setting.
One is located in the West
Florida Medical Center, in
Pensacola. The other is the
Joyce Goldenberg Hospice
Inpatient Residence, also lo-
cated in Pensacola.
These facilities were
mostly funded from dona-
tions by individuals who
have benefited from the ser-
vices of Covenant Hospice.
"You walk into a very nice,
home-like environment,"
Perkins said.
The residences provide
care and allow for personal
possessions to be brought in
from home. The
organization's concept of care
supports the belief that ev-
eryone has the right to die
pain-free and with dignity,
and that loved ones will re-
ceive the necessary support
to allow the patient to do so.
The centers provide a home-
like atmosphere with unlim-
ited visiting hours, where
family, children, and loved
ones are welcome.
"They're just a magnifi-
cent group," Dolores said.
"They really are. Your life has
changed, but there is hope for
your healing."

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, JUNE 21, 2007

DeFuniak native finds

success as Tampa surgeon


ing to one of Sheffield's broth-
ers, David Sheffield, also of
DeFuniak Springs. "Medi-
cine is in the family," David
said. His father was a hospi-
tal orderly; another brother,
Ross, is a paramedic in Ala-
bama, and a niece is a
bioengineer. "He decided in
10th-grade whether to use
his mind or his back," David
said. "It's pretty obvious
which he chose."
Nevertheless, Cedric
Sheffield was no stranger to
hard work, his brother ex-
plained. To avoid placing a
burden on his parents,
Cedric signed on with the
United States Navy Reserve
to pay for his higher educa-
tion, and worked at a nurs-
ery/clinic while attending
Florida State. According to


By REID TUCKER
Cedric Sheffield is the
eighth of 12 children. He, like
other children who grew up
in Walton County, had a
fairly normal childhood: he
was in the Boy Scouts as a
youngster, he played in the
band at Walton High School,
worked at Thrift-Way Super-
market, drove a '68 Chevelle,
graduated, went to college,
graduated, moved away from
home, got a job, got married
and had two children. In
2001, he moved back to
Florida, this time to Tampa.
Along the way, he became a
doctor.
At 47 years old, Sheffield
is recognized as one of the
best heart and lung trans-
plant surgeons in the coun-
try. He graduated from
Florida State University
with a bachelors degree in
chemistry in 1982 and gradu-
ated from Duke University's
prestigious medical school in
S 1986. Duke even asked him
to join with the board of di-
rectors a few years ago.
Sheffield's mother Juanita
Sheffield, said of her son's
accomplishments, "He was
the kind of person who al-
ways worked hard. He did
what he needed to do to do
what he wanted."
2 Upon arriving in Tampa in
2001, Sheffield helped to es-
tablish one of the world's
largest lung transplant facili-
ties. He also lectures and
teaches around the Tampa-
St. Petersburg area. He is the
surgical director of the
hospital's lung and heart
transplant program. In an
interview with Tampa's
Florida Sentinel, Sheffield
said, "I feel fortunate to have
the opportunity to establish
a heart and lung transplant
program (here) at Tampa
General."
These accolades should
come as no surprise, accord-

his brother, Sheffield "always
helped people in the commu-
nity," and he still does. David
said that numerous people
confer with his brother on
important medical matters
and even send him their

medical paperwork to review.
I- addition to his many
responsibilities and obliga-
tions, and in many ways, be-
cause of them, Cedric
Sheffield has become a sym-
bol of inspiration to not only
his family, but members of
the community, too. "It's im-
portant for local people to see
what a local boy can do with
his life," David Sheffield said.
"My brother is a positive ex-
ample in the community."

GOALS FROM FRONT


a master plan for recreation
facilities.


"Can we really de-
velop a specific util-
ity plan without
knowing where the
growth is going to
be?" asked Councilman Don
Harrison. The Council de-
cided that while this was
important, the city's growth
was not yet to the point to
warrant making it a top pri-
ority.


Kirby said 'action points'
on the various plans would
be developed for the review
of the Council members as
the plan is developed.
After a quick update on
each of these by Kirby, the
Council discussed each at
length to determine if they
would be considered a high
priority. The theme for the
night was taking "specific"


plans and making them "gen-
eral" plans.
"Can we really develop a
specific utility plan without
knowing where the growth is
going to be?" asked Council-
man Don Harrison, discuss-
ing the first issue of the
night. The Council decided
that" while this was impor-
tant, the city's growth was
not yet to the point to war-
rant making it a top priority.
This theme continued
throughout the night as the
members insisted that spe-
cific long-range plans were
not always practical.
Kirby noted that the city
has to make the best guesses
it can as far as where growth
will occur, using all data
available.
The multi-modal trans-
portation plan received much
discussion, being placed as
one of the top priorities.

vide new sources of revenue
for transportation projects.
City Planner Greg Scoville
noted that these funds did
not have to be used 9nly for
roads, but also for sidewalks,
bypasses, and parallel road-
ways that can ease traffic in
an impacted area.
Sidewalks needed on Wal-
ton Road and Bruce Avenue
were of particular interest to
the Council, and representa-
tives of the DeFuniak
Springs Police Department
noted that Bruce wtas a
"safety hazard" without side-
walks.
Next in discussion was re-
view of zoning classifications,
which was not considered a
top priority as the planning
department is currently
working on this as part of the
10 year strategic plan that is
currently in production. It
was noted that any greater
emphasis was not necessary
because it has to be done re-
gardless.
The airport was next on
the agenda. Lengthening the
runways, finding aerospace
companies to come to the air-
port to provide new jobs for
city residents, expanding
hangar space and purchas-
ing land in the surrounding
area were all discussed as
possibilities for the future.
Councilman James Huffman
said this was his top priority
because, "we're talking about
jobs." The Council agreed
and placed expansion of the
city airport as their number-
one strategic priority for the
next fiscal year in a meeting
Monday night.
Revitalizing the down-
town area was discussed
briefly, but not placed as a
top priority.
Discussion was made
about expanding this to a
greater city beautification
strategic plan. Money for
these projects can be ob-
tained wi-th state grants.
However, after the state pays
for the upgrade, the city is
required to pay for the main-
tenance. "Before we enter
into future agreements, we
need to weigh against time
and effort to maintain the


VWce
Data
Internet
Wireless
Ertertalnffent


improvements," Kirby said.
Bringing in an industrial
park to DeFuniak Springs
was then discussed, with
Huffman expressing concern
over city residents having to
commute south of the bay for
better paying jobs.
Council members even
discussed bringing in defense
contractors, noting the sav-
ings a company could gain
locating in DeFuniak
Springs rather than the Fort
Walton Beach area.
Due to the city's integral
location on 1-10 and U.S. 331,
commercial distribution cen-
ters are another type of busi-
ness the Council said they
believed DeFuniak Springs
could attract. Both Huffman
and Councilman James
Coffield agreed that finding
land for such an industrial
park was the greatest diffi-
culty.
Developing a storm water
plan was discussed next,
with talks focusing on the
current trend of developers
and homeowners' associa-
tions taking control of storm
water control, rather than
local governments. It was
noted that the state Depart-,
ment of Environmental Pro-
tection had oversight in this
area, regardless of whether
it was a private or public con-
trol of the plan.
Scoville noted that the
downtown area had particu-
lar needs that were unique
from the rest of the city in
this area, saying that current
storm water requirements on
any new business coming to
the area might be hindering
growth in that' area.
The Council agreed that
this should be evaluated, but
at the planning board level,
and did not make it a top pri-
ority.
City facilities was next,
and the discussion ranged
from moving City Hall, to
renovating it and even ex-
panding it. Also, needs of the
city police and fire depart-
ments were discussed.
Huffman said that the city
needed to being to set aside
money for whatever expan-
sion was necessary as, "prop-

erty isn't getting any
cheaper." It was agreed the
first step would be to have a
study of space needs for city
facilities first.
Neither code review or rec-
reational planning were
thoroughly discussed, as code
update is "an ongoing pro-
cess," according to Kirby and
the soon-to-be-appointed rec-
reational board will begin
discussion on recreation is-
sues.


Of the four top priorities
chosen by the Council, after
the airport expansion was
developing a transportation
plan, developing an indus-
trial park, and developing 'a
plan for city facilities.
They were ranked in order
to provide "priority within
priority" for time and re-
sources.
The City Council will meet
next Monday for their regu-
lar meeting at 7 p.m.

Slimmer weddings become


Chautauqua tradition


By LAKEN DAVIS
After Hurricane Eloise ir-
reparably damaged part of
the Chautauqua Hall of
Brotherhood in the DeFu-
niak Springs Lakeyard in
1975, the building was re-
paired and rebuilt. However,
the large auditorium that
once nearly reached the cur-
rent lower sidewalk was not
restored.
Though the existing build-
- ing is smaller than the origi-
nal, its large ballroom,
lighted-porch, gazebo, and
view of Lake DeFuniak,
make sharing wedding vows
at this venue a popular sum-
mer tradition for many De-
Funiak Springs residents. It
has become quite common to
see wedding parties gathered.
outside of the Hall, which is
known to many simply as the
Chautauqua building.
Rodney Ryals, facility
maintenance coordinator for
the city of DeFuniak Springs,
has been preparing the
Chautauqua building for
events, including weddings,
for about 24 years. Ryals gets
the building's booking con-
tracts from City Hall, and
they tell him what is happen-
ing and when. He makes sure
the building is clean and
ready for each event. He said
the lake-side location is
highly in demand.
Ryals said that if a couple


doesn't use a church, then it's
the Chautauqua building
they book. The building's an-
tique look on the inside and
out, as well as the back porch
with lights and fans, is very
attractive to couples, he said.
"With the lake for the
background, it makes for
great pictures,"
he added.

He also said that the out-
side of the building has just
received some maintenance
work. However, he doesn't
think the building held many
weddings in its early years
because of its design. The
building originally housed an
auditorium for presenters
and their audiences and later
housed a gymnasium. It
wasn't until the mid-1970s
that the building took its
present form.
Ryals pointed out that the
building is not used only for
wedding ceremonies, but also
for rehearsal dinners and
wedding receptions. Ryals
said couples can hire their
own florists and caterers. He
lets couples know what com-'
panies are available, but
does not make any special
recommendations.
Ryals said many couples
from out of town are married
in the building as well. He's
seen couples come from
Crestview, Ponce de Leon,


Panama City, and even West
Virginia and Louisiana. They
may choose the venue be-
cause friends or family live
in the area, or because the
bride or groom is originally
from the area but has moved
away.
As for dates, Ryals said
that most weddings use to be
just after spring, and many
still are, but he also sees
them throughout the year, on
Valentine's Day, in the
middle of the week, or for a
special reason like a
relative's birthday.
"A lot pick a date that is
sentimental to them," he
said.
There have been 13 wed-
dings held in the building
from January to May 2007.
Four were booked for June,
and one has been booked for
July.
If a couple wants to be
sure of getting a specific date,
Ryals recommended that the
bride and groom book the
building a year in advance.
He also suggested having al-
ternative dates in mind be-
cause the building is used so
much.
Amanda Campbell and
Daniel Alford have planned
their wedding for July 28 at
the building. The couple
choge the summer date be-
cause Amanda teaches in
Paxton and would have the

ing a location for their wedding celebrations. (Photo by Laken Davis)


summer off to plan the event
and spend time on their hon-
eymoon.
She said she chose the
Chautauqua building be-
cause it is a pretty location,
with the outside overlooking
the lake. When Amanda
booked the building in April,
there was only one Saturday
available, and that was only
because another party had
canceled, she said.
Ellen Mayfield has done
catering for weddings at the
Chautauqua building since
1981. She said the building
is beautiful when the scene
is set with floral arrange-


ments, linens and drapery. It
has seen the finest of times,
she said.
"When you see the look in
the bride's eyes when it's
done, you just see the excite-
ment and the appreciation
for the setting," Mayfield
said.

When couples are marred
in the Hall, she said, they
mix emotions of love for each
other with emotions of love
and respect for the building.
"If those walls could talk, it-
would be a joyous thing,"
Mayfield said.
The building is an icon of


historic DeFuniak Springs,:
she said. The people who are
married there appreciate his-
tory. She has even seen
brides and grooms whose
parents were married in the
building. "It's just a memory
maker," she said.
She added that with the
covered veranda, weddings
can be held outside even if
weather conditions are poor.
The architecture and the
historic, downtown location
make the venue popular to
couples planning their wed-
ding events. "I just think the
building is magical," she
said;


Freeport YMCA to



offer unique services


By REID TUCKER
The Freeport branch of
the Walton County YMCAre-
cently announced that it is
currently in the process of
expanding its facilities for
the purpose of offering more
services to that growing com-
munity. YMCA official
George Cowie said of the ex-
pansion, "We're excited to of-
fer a facility geared toward
family fitness." The new fa-
cility is located on Highway
20 across from the Freeport
City Hall, and will by open
from 6 to 10 a.m. and 3 to 8
p.m. Monday through Friday,
and 8 a.m. until noon on Sat-
urday.

"Many gyms are strictly
for adults," Cowie said, and
to achieve this ideal of 'fam-
ily fitness,' the Freeport
YMCA will offer a wealth of
services not usually associ-
ated with fitness centers. In
addition to the prograT s of-
fered by YMCA as per usual,
including basketball, soccer,
swimming lessons and ka-
rate, this new "Express Y," as
the facility is called, will sup-
ply members with a child-
care center, among other
unique offerings.
There are, of course, stipu-
lations.
"Most people won't come
work out for more than an
hour and a half anyway," said
Cowie, explaining the 90-
minute time limit placed on
workouts. This time limit ex-
ists to prevent what Cowie
jokingly referred to as "shop-
ping day-care. It's not like a
day-care center at all."
The program, called Child


Watch, "exists to promote
family fitness, and the child
care program is only avail-
able for people while they're
in the facility working out,"
Cowie said. Child Watch is a
free program offered by the
YMCA offered to all mem-
bers, wherein children are
cared for by staff employees,
"allowing parents to have
peace of mind while they are
attending programs," Cowie
said. The program will be of-
fered from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Monday through Friday.
Inside the workout room,
the bulk of the facility's
equipment are of the cable
and pulley variety, with a
limited emphasis on free
weights, in spite of the inter-
est in that form of weight
training. Cowie explained
that the current setup is
"staged so that it won't be too
crowded. We have to live
within our space con-
straints." He feels that by
placing more emphasis on
machines rather than free
weights, the gym will be
more "streamlined," and
"solo-oriented." He offered an
example of a person attempt-
ing a 500-pound squat with
bar bells without a spotter
and the risks that poses to
personal safety, hence the
machines.
As the Freeport YMCA is
being billed as a family fit-
ness facility from the start,
it offers a wide range of pro-
grams for different age
groups. Cowie says that the
majority of the soccer and
basketball participants are
all school-aged, whereas the
karate (with participants


from six years old and up)
and swimming programs
have a fairly even mix of
adults and younger people.
In order to attract even more
prospective members, Cowie
said, "We hope to add aero-
bics classes in the future."
As to youth involvement
with the exercise equipment
in the weight room, Cowie
said, "Young people are more
than welcome to use the
equipment, but they need to
know they aren't toys." Fur-
ther, younger members will
have to go.through an orien-
tation process to make sure
that the equipment is used
safely and effectively. "We
don't want people in there
just playing around, it's dan-
gerous," Cowie said.
When asked if other area
gyms and fitness centers had
expressed any feelings of re-
sentment towards a new
competitor, Cowie said, "Our
approach isn't going to be in
a competitive stance with
other fitness facilities. We
just have some things that
other places don't." Namely,
the non-regimental nature of
the facility. "Because the sys-
tem we have isn't as regi-
mented as other places that
emphasize a circuit-training
method, we allow people to
make their own goals and
work at their own pace. We
think that is what the public
needs," he said.
The expanded YMCA facil-
ity will be opening with ex-
tended hours in July. For
more information regarding
the new fitness center or any
of the planned or on-going
programs, call 835-1223.


AFTER MOVING the weight-training equipment to the new location last Friday, the Free-
port YMCA is busy getting its many programs in line for beginning operations in July.


DESPITE HAVING the majority of the workout equipment ready to go, the site is still very
much under construction.

My wife and I would like
to express our thanks on be-
half of the Wilkerson family
for the services provided by
Clary-Glenn Funeral Home
and their staff.
I have recently retired from'
the U.S. Army after serving
26 years. During that time, I
have witnessed and partici-
pated in numerous funerals
and memorial services., The
professionalism and dedica-
tion exhibited by them and
their staff were of the high-
est caliber. I have not seen it
done any better. The han-
dling of every detail, no mat-
ter how small, was superbly
executed and always on time.
Every step of the way they
expressed respect to the fam-
ily and made sure their de-
sires were met. The family
was guided through this emo-
tional time with a sincerity
that was beyond what is nor-
mally expected from a fu-
neral home.
It is obvious that Joel
'Glenn is a minister, as he pro-
vided a presence that com-
forted the family, and for that
we are truly blessed. It is
clear to us that Joel and his
staff treat their profession as
a ministry and that God re-
sides in their business.
We appreciate all the
things they provided, from
the ham, chairs, and ice to
their personal attention at
every turn. We know that

WOW ^ ......


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
being able to say we offer them all.

The properties of love in the home


By Dr. ROBERT M. JAYE
Some people say that ro-
mantic love is impossible to
define. In reading 1
Corinthians 13:4-6, we find
that Paul did a fine job in set-
ting forth some of the quali-
ties of Christian love. Read
those verses, and see just
how good a description he
made.
Love is patient (v. 4). Pa-
tience is one of the most ur-
gently needed qualities in life
and in the home. There may
be hard feelings for a time,
but be patient, for only time
and growth can take care of
some of these things.
Love is kind (v. 4). Kind-
ness is a positive virtue. Pa-
tience endures difficulties
while kindness reaches out


strongly to do good. The home
is the place where it is most
important that we practice
kindness in our relationships
to others.
Love practices good man-
ners (v. 5). Love inspires in
us an attitude of kindness
and courtesy, which elimi-
nates rudeness. Good man-
ners will ensure good rela-
tions not only in the business
world, but also in the home.
Love is not self-centered (v.
5). Christian love does not
insist on its own way. Chris-
tian love concerns itself with
the happiness and well-being
of the person who. is loved.
Selfishness and Christian
love are the very opposites.
Selfishness can be the cause
of many homes not being the

Sports News and Notes


By PATRICK CASEY
Pensacola Catholic volley-
ball coach Randy Pounders,
57, passed away on Monday,
June 4, at Sacred Heart Hos-
pital in Pensacola after a
brief illness. Pounders spent
14 seasons as the Crusaders
volleyball coach and wrapped
up his 11th straight district
tournament title this past
fall with the squad. The Cru-
saders made 12 consecutive
trips to the state volleyball
playoffs under Pounders be-
ginning in 1995. His 1996
squad was his only one to
earn a trip to the Final Four,
losing to Tampa Berkeley
Prep in the Class 3A state
semifinal.

The College Nationals Fi-
nals Rodeo was held in
Casper, Wyoming this past
weekend. Holmes County
graduate Randa Dewees, a
sophomore on the Troy Uni-


versity rodeo team, finished
35th in the barrel racing
event.

While it might not gather
as much glamour as winning
back-to-back basketball
titles at the University of
Florida, the Florida State
University men's track team
earned the track national
championship for the second
consecutive year. Florida
State men's track and field
team began the outdoor sea-
son as the top-ranked team
in the country and swept the
championship season with
title wins at the ACC, NCAA
East Region and NCAA Na-
tional Championship meets.
Major League Baseball
conducted its players draft
last week with several local
college and high school play-
ers being drafted. FSU sec-
ond baseman Tony Thomas
Jr. was taken by the Chicago


Cubs in the third round with
the 97th selection. The Min-
nesota Twins drafted FSU
pitcher Ryan Strauss in the
35th round and took Jack-
sonville Eagle's View short-
stop Josh Adams in the 30th
round. Adams plans to at-
tend the University of
Florida in the fall and
Strauss will likely return to
FSU to try and improve his
draft stock. Adams helped
lead Eagle's View to an 8-4
win over Paxton in May in
the Class A Region I final.
The Southeastern Confer-
ence will distribute approxi-
mately $122 million to the 12
league institutions in the
revenue sharing plan for the
2006-2007 fiscal year, which
ends Aug. 31, 2007, accord-
ing to league commissioner
Mike Slive. The $122 million
is the highest total ever dis-
tributed in SEC history and
,represents a 5.1 percent in-


crease from the $116.1 mil-
lion distributed to the schools
in 2005-2006. The revenue
sharing plans include money
generated by football televi-
sion, bowls, the SEC Football
Championship, basketball
television, the SEC Men's
Basketball Tournament and
NCAA Championships. The
average amount distributed
to each school was $10.17
million.

XM Satellite Radio signed
a multi-year agreement with
Fox Sports, becoming the ex-
clusive satellite radio net-
work of the BCS National
Championship Game as well
as other BCS games begin-
ning in Jan. 2008.
The Southeastern Confer-
ence is exploring the idea of
launching its own TV net-
work within the next two to
three years, something the
Big Ten conference is at-


tempting this year.
The Big 12 Conference
and Fox Sports Net have
reached an agreement to al-
low the VERSUS channel to
carry selected games involv-
ing league squads in 2007.
South Florida has signed
a 10-year multimedia broad-
cast and marketing agree-
ment with ISP Sports and
ESPN Regional.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
tight end Dave Moore an-
nounced his retirement re-
cently following 15 seasons
in the NFL. Named to the
Pro Bowl last season, Moore
will join the Buccaneers' Ra-
dio Network as the team's
color analyst this season,
alongside longtime play-by-
play announcer Gene
Deckerhoff in the booth.
Moore spent 13 seasons
with the Buccaneers, the
most of any player in team


history. He appeared in 220
career games, including 190
contests as a member of the
Buccaneers to rank second in
team history, behind only LB
Derrick Brooks (192). He also
ranks third in team history
among tight ends with 184
receptions, along with total-
ing 1,805 receiving yards.
His 24 receiving touchdowns
are fourth in team history.
Moore, who also served as a
long snapper, finished his
NFL career with 207 recep-
tions for 2,028 receiving
yards and 28 touchdowns as
a member of the Buccaneers
(1992-2001,2004-06), Miami
Dolphins (1992) and Buffalo
Bills (2002-03). Moore origi-
nally entered the league as a
seventh-round pick (191st
overall) of the Dolphins in
1992.

Magic refunds season



tickets for Donovan fans


By CHUCK HINSON
Just when you thought
that the drama of Donovan
and the Magic had begun to
subside, up comes a market-
ing ploy by the Orlando team
to regain fan support and
help move on after Billy said
bye-bye.
It seems that the Orlando
Magic cannot win for losing,
especially after Donovan
asked to be let out of his con-
tract. They are now offering
full refunds to people who
bought season tickets to see
Donovan and a hopeful
Magic turnaround.
More than 200 season
packages were sold within 24
hours after the announce-
ment that Orlando had hired
the Gator coach, known all
over the South, and espe-
cially just an hour away, as
winning two straight NCAA
basketball titles. The hopes
for a new and improved
Magic team were in the eyes
of thousands of fans.
But as the nation, and to
the joy of Florida, Donovan
returned to Gainesville on
May 31, for another year or
so of coaching the rebuilding


Gator basketball program.
The Magic said they were
contacting individual fans
who bought tickets within 48
hours of the Donovan an-
nouncement. To the surprise
of many of the staff and the
administration of the team,
many have decided to keep
their tickets for next season,
despite the absence of the
iconic coach.
Orlando, and former Mi-
ami Heat coach Stan Van
Gundy, are now preparing for
a more positive and winning
team, despite the past few
years of set-backs and disap-
pointments. .
From a sports fan's point
of view, this was a noble ges-
ture by the Magic, to offer
refunds to those who had
bought season tickets,
merely for the reason to see
if Donovan could turn the
team around. Even after
their gesture, many loyal
fans and those who are hop-
ing to see the "magic" return
to the court, just say they
want to keep the loyalty and
the spirit of the game alive.
If Florida State fans re-
member correctly, we were


all threatening to cancel sea-
son tickets, stop paying
alumni dues, boycott Semi-
nole football and all together
flop to the Gator bandstand,
unless something drastic was
done, and it was.
Ticket sales are soaring
back to normal from where
they were last year, and the
Alabama/Florida State game
in September that will be
taking place in Jacksonville
in September is almost sold
out.
Surprising what a little bit
of threat and a lot less
alumni dues and ticket sales
will do to a sports program.
It just goes to show that in
the South, sports is every-
thing to everybody. No mat-
ter if the team is down.
As Florida begins to re-
build their basketball pro-
grams and the Magic recov-
ers from a serious blow, both
Florida-based teams will be-
gin to get back into their
groove, find what works and
what doesn't and fans will
still pour into the coliseum to
catch a game being coached
by one of two of their favor-
ite coaches.


My suggestion to Donovan
would be, reassure your
players, fans and alumni
that you are there to stay and
that you are committed to re-
building the Gator program.
As far as the Magic fans are
concerned, Donovan might
need to just enjoy their
games from the comfort of
your home theater room, and
make plans to see Mickey in
a few years when a lot of the
"hurt" has subsided and fans
of the Magic have forgotten.


Wilkinson and Peck
Cawthon were second at 63.3
after shooting a 65 and Horst
Burmiester and E.Woods fin-
ished third with a 66.3 score
after shooting a 69.
Eddie Carter and Ginny
Reddick captured the second
flight title with a 62.6 score
off of a 67 round. Keith
Barton and Tom Cotzin were
second with a 64.2 score af-
ter posting a 68 on the course
and Bill Lindsey and Patrick
Casey captured third with a
67.4 score after shooting a 71
representing the media team
of the DeFuniak Herald and
TV-24.
The third flight saw Chris
King and Penny Partridge
team up to finish first with a
m 64.4tiffofih round of 69. Sam
and Shannon Rachels were
second with a 67.2 after
shooting 72 and Barry
Grossman and Shelley
Sullivan finished third with


a 74.2 after shooting a 79.
The event raised approxi-
mately $2,500 and will en-
able the club to sponsor at
least one child from Walton
County to the week-long Ro-
tary Youth Camp for physi-
cally-challenged children, lo-
cated in Leon County.
The Rotary Youth Center
provides a counselor for each
child and offers swimming,
arts and crafts, campfires
and other typical summer
camp activities. It gives ex-
ceptional children an oppor-
tunity to have some time
apart from their parents as
well as relax and experience.
new activities.
Twenty-two teams took
part in the tournament in
2007 in what has become, a
yearly tradition of golf and
fellowship at the DeFuniak
Springs Country Club for the
DeFuniak Springs Rotary
Club.

SW Mosquito


Control rules


By JEFFREY POWELL
Citizens and press repre-
sentatives attending
Tuesday's South Walton
Mosquito Control District's
(SWMCD) regular meeting
expecting to hear discussion
concerning budgeting and
employee salaries left disap-
pointed. However, they did
get to witness an unusual
turn of events concerning


mission seat now held by
Cindy Meadows. "As we tried
to unravel the truth, we dis-
covered that Mr. Burke has
a history of changing ad-
dresses," Magee said. "This
development puts a dark
cloud over our organization
and we want these problems
looked at."
Procedure dictates that a
board member that is under


our organization and
lems looked at."


Commissioner Charlie
Burke.
As part of his report to the
board attorney Allan Ramey
brought to light the suspicion
that Commissioner Burke
may have given an improper
address when running for
the office he currently holds.
Florida state law requires
mosquito control board mem-
bers to reside in the district-
they represent. According to
Ramey, there is some ques-
tion as to whether this is true
for Burke.
SWMCD Chairman John
Magee suggested that the
same problem might have
existed during Burke's run
for the Walton County Com-


we want these prob-


this kind of suspicion recuse
himself from further, board
action until the situation is
remedied. Burke could have
done this and stayed in at-
tendance at the day's pro-
ceedings. "No sir, I will not
recuse myself," Burke said.
"The voters brought me here
and I. am going to stay."
The meeting was then ad-
journed due to Burkes re-
fusal.
Ramey intends to file a
formal complaint with the
state to determine Burke's
true address.
"This is one way to keep
the budget from being looked
at by the public," Burke said
as he left the meeting.


THE SOUTH WALTON Fire District celebrated getting its newly remodeled Inlet Beach
Station back in service on June 15. (Photo by Dotty Nist)



Inlet Beach Fire Station


is new and improved


By DOTTYNIST
"This is your station," was
South Walton Fire District
(SWFD) Chief Rick. Talbert's
message to the Inlet Beach
Community on Juiie 15.
The fire district (celebrated
the reopening of the station
on Friday in its newly remod-
eled form with a .ribbon cut-
ting and open house.
Updating the district's
older stations was? part of the
.organization's five-year plan.
Talbert noted that Station 1
in Inlet Beach had been more
in need of the work than
most, with electrical and
plumbing problems and di-
lapidated fixtures. While the
upgrades took place,


firefighters had been tempo-
rarily stationed at a small
rental nearby.
Talbert commented that
the station's history goes
back to 1'989, when it was set
up to serve the residents of
South Walton County's east-
ernmost community.
Shifts of three firefighters
will man the station around
the clock. The station is
equipped with an aerial
pump truck capable of re-
sponding both to fires and


medical emergencies.
"We're very proud of the
staff and facilities here,"
Talbert said.
The station features a
community room that is
available for public meetings.
Talbert said the station will
be available 24-7 to serve the
citizens with free blood pres-
sure checks and other ser-
vices as needed.
The Inlet Beach Fire Sta-
tion is located at 117 North
Wall Street off U.S. 98.

Planning Commission

By LEAH STRATMANN
The final item on the
agenda for the Walton
County Planning Commis-
sion resulted in the unusual
act of certifying planning di-
rector Pat Blackshear as an
expert in her field. This ac-
tion came about after a wit-
ness for Emerald Coast As-
sociates, Buddy Page, a mas-
ter planner himself, was de-
clared an expert in his field.
Page was arguing the project
met compatibility standards
for the area, while the staff
emphatically said it did not.
The project under discus-
sion was a major develop-
ment order application sub-
mitted by Emerald Coast As-
sociates consisting of 1.27
acres located on the south
side of CR-30A where the de-
veloper wanted to build eight


single-family condominiums.
For the county, Jason Bryan
explained the applicant was
.not asking for any variances
in setbacks, the water reten-
tion was slated to be via ex-
filtration and there was no
environmental buyout.
Bryan said the issue was
compatibility. Most of the
property south of CR-30A is
single-family residential and
the neighbors were con-
cerned about traffic stacking
at a dangerous intersection.
"While the development
meets other elements of the
land development code,
(LDC) and the county code
(CC), the county does not find
it compatible," he said.
Blackshear added, "We re-
viewed the compatibility

'Last week's planning com-
mission meeting got off to a
rancorous start when,it was
announced that a petition for
abandonment ,o! the right of
way at the northernmost sec-
tion of North Eden park
Drive, consisting of an area
approximately 58-feet in
width and submitted by Ari
Jukka Junno, Inc. was being
continued until next month
because the attorney could
not be present.. Several citi-
zens in the audience began
to grumble and asked to be
heard.
The county attorney noted
it was at the 'option of the
board to hear opinions or not.
As the start c{f the meeting
had been delayed for 30 min-
utes in order to gather a quo-
rum, there wAere only four
commissioners in atten-
dance. Chairman Albert
Paris declined to hear opin-
ions after Commissioner
Sally Merrifield pointed out
there were only four commis-
sioners present and it would
all have to be placed in the
record before the next meet-
ing.
Hearing-. this, David
Kramer approached the com-
missioners a.nd said he would
be on vacati on at the time of
next month's meeting, how-
ever commissioner Paris


could not be swayed. Hear-
ing this, about 15 people in
the gallery stood up and
walked out, one of them say-
ing, "Shame on you. We
waited 30 minutes for this
meeting to start and some of
us drove in from out of town.
Shame on you!"
After the departure of
those citizens, the first
project number under consid-
eration was a major develop-
ment order application sub-
mitted by Porterfield Engi-
neering, Inc. for the prepara-
tion of 33.22 acres of land
north of State Highway 20,
6.5 miles east of the Okaloosa
county line for the construc-
tion of 48 single-family
homes in a subdivision to be
known as Trout Branch.
John King, speaking on
behalf of Trout Branch LLC
noted that since the develop-
ers were not successful in
winning the lottery for a
small-scale amendment,
they had changed their plans
from 63 home sites and a
storage facility to 48 home
sites. He noted the area is
zoned rural village.
The staff said the project
met all the county's require-
ments, but recommended
preservation be constructed
as a buffer and configured to
allow for septic systems and
that the developer.establish


a preservation protection
plan.
Brian Brown from Eglin
Air Force Base joined the
commissioners to get this
statement on the record for"
the developers. "I want to
point out some issues rel,-
evant to anybody building
adjacent to Eglin's boundary I
In the past developers have':
built and didn't consider:I
there is nature nearby and&:
nature will run onto you, in-:
eluding water runoff.
Don't come running to the
Air Force asking for help if';
this happens," he said. "YouI-:
will hear gunfire and bombs
and things will occur not very::
far from you, so homes
should have additional sound
buffers. Consider thesOe
things when you build th6:
homes. It's a great selling
feature to have a nature pre;
serve in your backyard, but
if swimming pools and sep:
tic tanks are built into it (the6
preserve), we have to send
out a federal marshal. There
has to be strong homed
owner's covenants to pre-
serve the buffer zone."
Citizen James Mills who
lives in the area said, "I'm
here to look after my inter-
ests and my interest is drain-
age. I need to see something

Decision delayed on Scenic Gulf Drive parking


By DOTTY NIST
The South Walton Annex
was a sea of lime green on
June 11, when over 150
Miramar Beach residents
and property owners showed
up to oppose Walton County's
plans to spend from $825,000
to $4.75 million to revamp
parking for the public along
a section of Scenic Gulf
Drive.
The opposition wore
matching green t-shirts with
the inscription "No parking
lot on the beach." They car-
ried large stacks of petitions
supporting their position.
The occasion was a public
hearing in conjunction with
the June 11 Walton County
Board of County Commis-
sioners (BCC) meeting at the
South Walton Courthouse
Annex.
In Walton County as else-
where, parking along the
right of way is a gray area
and a sometimes thing, and
policies vary according to
area.
For many years the Scenic
Gulf Drive right-of-way next
to Seascape Resort, extend-
ing about 700 feet to the east
of the beachfront Whale's
Tail restaurant, has been fre-
quented by beachgoers and
restaurant patrons who park
parallel along the beach and
along the north side of the
road. Construction workers'
vehicles have added to the
mix.
The result has been an of-
ten crowded and dangerous
traffic situation, with ve-
hicles pulling in and out of
traffic and pedestrians cross-
ing the road haphazardly to
get to the beach and the res-
taurant.
The parking along the
right-of-way has been dis-
couraged at times, but cur-
iently Walton County is look-
ing at maintaining public
parking on the 700-foot-long
stretch while spending
money on improvements to


"It's where people are parking right now,"
said Commissioner Cindy Meadows.


enhance safety. The proposal
is billed as Phase III of the
county's ongoing beautifica-
tion of Scenic Gulf Drive.
Other phases have included
resurfacing, consolidation of
walkovers, and landscaping
buffers, among other tasks.
On June 11, county engi-
neering consultant Cliff
Knauer presented four differ-
ent options to revamp park-
ing along the 700-foot-long
section, with all parking ar-
eas to be located within the
county right-of-way, and
easements from Seascape be-
ing required in some in-
stances for boardwalks and
other plan features.
The various options would
provide for 96-131 parking
spaces plus 7-8 handicapped
parking spaces.
In all options, a five-foot-
wide "safety zone" would be
provided between road traf-
fic and parking spaces.
All options call for a mini-
mum of 52 parallel parking
spaces, which are to be larger
than normal, 10 feet wide by
25 feet long, to allow drivers
to pull in and center their
vehicles inside the space,
plus pull
onto the road when leaving
without having to back out.
Three of the options also
call for at least 47 parking
spaces slanted to a 45 degree
angle, these spaces to be con-
structed as an elevated park-
ing lot on the south side of
the road just east of tlhe
Whale's Tail.
One option would involve
relocation of a section of the
roadway about 11 feet to the
north.
All options provide for pe-
destrian boardwalks on the


south side of the road con-
necting with dune walkovers
leading to the beach, plus the
addition of native beach veg-
,etation to the dunes.
District 5 Commissioner
Cindy Meadows questioned
the opponents' statement
that parking would be "on
the beach." She emphasized
that it would be confined to
the county right-of-way.
"It's where people are
parking right now," she said.
A representative of the
Empress condo owners' asso-
ciation had polled owners
and said they would favor the
first ($825,000, 104-parallel-
spaice) option but would op-
pose option 4, which called
for relocating the road.
No other member of the
public in attendance had a
good word to say about any
of the proposed options.
Some were worried that
the work would predispose
the area to more damage
with storm impacts.
"This could be a long-term
nightmare," homeowner Bob
Gelardi told the commission-
ers.
Gelardi reminded the
BCC cf the county compre-
hensinve plan goal to limit
public expenditures in areas
subject to.natural disasters.
Barbara Grimaldi said the
parking plans showed "a lack
of common sense" and added
that she would be on the
beach "shouting" if she saw
pile drivers or concrete mix-
ers there.
"I would like to see the cost
benefit. as a taxpayer," re-
questerd Santa Rosa Beach
resident Bob Hudson.
Others questioned the ap-
propriateness of building


public facilities for use of a
beach that they considered
private.
"Right now this is not a
public beach," said Suzanne
Harris.
Majestic Sun property
owner Bill White asserted
that the majority of the beach
section is private beach be-
longing to Seascape Resort.
Meadows observed that
the public has traditionally
used the beach section.
Majestic Sun property
owner Velma Jones said that
owners at her condo pay an-
nual association fees to Sea-
scape and that they were told
the beach was private. How-
ever, she said, Seascape has
not enforced that
status.
Meadows asked the citi-
zens what their preference
would be to make the road
section safer.
Gelardi suggested elimi-
nating parking along the sec-
tion, as he said had been the
case at one time.
The room burst into ap-
plause at that statement. A
fence along the right-of-way
was suggested as well to keep
people off the beach.
"Where are the local
people who park along the
beach going to go?" Meadows
asked.
Brad Pickel, consultant
for the South Walton Tourist
Development Council, noted
that in the recent large-scale
beach restoration project,
which included Miramar
Beach, the state of Florida
paid 50 percent of the cost
based on public parking
maintained by the county in
the project area.
Pickel said that eliminat-
ing existing public parking in
this beach section would re-
sult in the county being re-
quired to reimburse the state
$1.2 million of the project
cost.
Meadows moved to elimi-
nate the two most expensive

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, JUNE 21, 2007

Walton County TDC


working to repair Miramar


Beach parking lot


PAGE 3-C


12


Visitors and residents en-
joying the beautifully re-
stored beaches in Western
Walton County will have ex-
tra reason to celebrate next
year. Engineers are in the fi-
nal design phase for a new
pile-based structure parking
lot that will replace the park-
ing lot that was damaged
during past storms.
The new structure, which
will be built next to Pompano
Joe's, will replace the exist-
ing regional beach access
that was initially constructed
in 1995.
"We've been working for
the past two years with our
consultant Wilson Miller to
develop a design that will be
more structurally sound to
mitigate damage in the event
of a storm," said Kriss Titus,
executive director, Walton
County Tourist Develop-
ment Council (TDC). "We're
looking forward to the
completion of the new park-


ing lot prior to peak season,
so parking is readily avail-
able for our guests to access
the beach."
Rather than repair the pre-
vious 100-space parking lot
for the third time in 10 years,
the decision was made after
Hurricane Dennis to con-
struct a more damage-resis-
tant structure to mitigate
further losses.
The new lot will look simi-
lar to the former structure
but will be supported by con-
crete pilings to keep the as-
phalt intact. If the sand is
washed out from underneath
the structure, the pilings will
offer more support to aid
against storm surge.
The structural design of
the former parking lot failed
because it was simply built
upon a foundation of sand
presenting a major lack of
support for the structure. In
addition to improving the
structural quality, the new


parking lot will have 30 ad-
ditional parking spaces
bringing the total to 130 to
help ease congestion along
Scenic Gulf Drive.
Due to the ongoing western
Walton County Beach Resto-
ration Project, reconstruction
of the access was delayed
until the beach was restored
to account for the beach con-
dition. The project was com-
pleted in January and a pre-
application meeting has been
held with Florida Depart-
ment of Environmental Pro-
tection (FDEP).
The final permit applica-
tion for FDEP's review will
be submitted in early July,
with an approximate return
date of three to four months.
Depending upon the length
of the approval process from
the FDEP, construction is
scheduled to begin in Novem-
ber 2007 with a tentative
completion in late spring
2008.

they are cleaned, sorted and,
most importantly, analyzed.
Archaeologists will be on
hand to process artifacts pre-
viously found on the site at
the Heritage Park and Cul-


tural Center (Indian Temple

analysis and while on north
CR-30A there is a mixture of
development, on the south
side it is mostly single-fam-
ily dwellings and it is our
finding that it is not compat-
ible. The density is the real
issue in compatibility here,"
she said.
At this point Page, a plan-
ner hired by Emerald Coast
Associates to evaluate the is-
sue of compatibility, testified
before the commission. He
said, "We went out and took
a look at the area. There are
two and three-story build-
ings surrounding the prop-
erty in question and within
500-feet. In terms of sur-
rounding areas, the appear-
ance, not the density is com-
patible. None of the compo-
nents typically used in com-
patibility issues address den-
sity or the condo aspect. By
design they are going to look
the same as others in the
neighborhood."

The development was also
planned with a gate in mind
at the entrance, a factor un-
known to the county until the
meeting. The county said a
gate would further exacer-
bate the possibility of traffic
stacking as it was planned
for construction only 35-feet
from the road.
County engineering head
Greg Graham said, "Thirty-
five feet is not adequate, but
with only eight homes, there

that says water problems
will be addressed. I don't
want a four-foot road that
goes down to my yard."
County engineer Greg Gra-
ham said a peer review
would be done to make sure
the site preparation is prop-
erly done.
Lisa Quigley Brown, an-
other person living near the
proposed project asked how
long how will this develop-
ment take place and how
much time will it take. "Dur-
ing the construction process,
will the roads be blocked? We
would like some assurance
there will be no blockage,"


OM FRONT

is unlikely to be lots of traf-
, fic. But we'd like more time
to look at it since the gate is
new information."
While the developer in-
sisted the project was de-
signed for single-family resi-
dences in each of the eight
units, it was pointed out that
each unit was designed to be
around 3,000-square feet
over three floors each and
more than adequate for 12
people as a rental unit, which
would certainly cause prob-
lems with traffic and parking
spaces as only two spaces
were planned per unit.
Citizen and area resident
Dennis Riddle said, "We have
looked at the development
code in great detail and the
spirit of it is for new devel-
opment to be compatible in
density and style. The imme-
diate neighbors to the east
and west are three-deep, but
what they are proposing is
eight-deep. We have concern
over egress and adding eight
units there compounds it
needlessly. It is a hazardous
area.
"There is a bike path run-
ning by it and a lot of activ-
ity. I think there will be more
than 50 people a day coming
and going from the property
as each place could easily
and comfortably sleep 12, but
only two parking spaces are
allotted for each unit. Neigh-
bors just to the west are two-
story, and to go three-story in

she said.
King acknowledged that
construction would be a
hassle for the people in the
neighborhood, although in
the end they will have a new
paved road out of it. "We will
minimize the stress for these
people, but they will never
find it more difficult to get to
their houses than it is now.
What they have isn't even
really a road, and we will do
the best we can."
The developers were cau-
tioned by Commissioner
Randy Gardner to be aware
that any preservation not
preserved will have to be re-


an infill area requiring a 50-
foot setback according to
county code. Virtually all the
landscaping is in the setback
area, the rest is impervious
concrete. I believe the devel-
oper is disregarding the
spirit of the code to maximize
personal gain," said Riddle.
"If it were limited to a
three-unit site, all our objec-
tions would be eliminated.
We are also worried about
construction parking," he
concluded.
Alan Ficarra commented,
"I have to admit I hadn't seen
this project before tonight
and it is unusual to see an
infill lot that is actually infill.
The compatibility expert was
very selective in the areas he
took from the code to find
compatible. He ignored the
issue of setbacks completely.
He said the proposed devel-
opment complements the
area around it, but there is
no similar spacing with other
dwellings nearby. And finally,
eight units is not the same
as three or four units," he
said.
Commissioner Randy
Gardner made a motion say-
ing, "Based on the testimony
that I've heard and the staff
reports,. it does not appear to
be compatible with the
neighborhood. The area has
developed into predomi-
nantly a large single-family
home area. I recommend de-
nial of the application." Sally
Merrifeld seconded the mo-
tion and all the commission-
ers voted to deny the appli-
cation.


stored by order of the county
and sometimes areas cannot
be restored to an acceptable
level.
Pat Blackshear noted the
problem the county has en-
countered after the lots are
sold, is the builders disturb
preservation because it is
only 2.5 feet wide. When the
roads and infrastructure are
in, individual home builders
need to be aware of what the
preservation is for each
home. Covenants and restric-
tions need to be strong
enough indeed to put the re-
sponsibility off the infra-
structure developer and onto
somebody else.
The project was approved
with Gardner, Merrifeld, and
Paris voting yes and Susan
Horn voting no.

WATER CONSERVATION TIPS


* Time your shower to keep it under 5 minutes.
You'll save up to 100 gallons a month.


* When doing laundry, match the water level to the
size of the load.


* Teach your children to turn the faucet off tightly
after each use.


* Make sure you know where your master water
shut-off valve is located. This could save gallons
of water and damage to your home if a pipe were
to burst.


* Use a hose nozzle and turn off the water while
you wash your car and save more than 100 gal-
lons.


* Encourage your friends and nieghbors to be part
of a w\\ater-conscious community.


* Choose new water-saving appliances, like wash-
ing machines that save up to 20 gallons per load.


* Encourage your school system and local govern-
ment to help develop and promote a water conser-
vation ethic among children and adults.

ties having
water restric-
N1 tions caused
I by the lack of
|IA )S rain here
along the
Florida Pan-
handle.
t-~ti it But have no
fear, the water
is still pouring
down the
slides, foun-
tains are still spraying 25-
foot jets of water into the air
and the wave pools are still
creating walls of water for
thrill seekers. It is one indus-
try that relies solely on the
summer heat to bring in the
cool cash!
Many community pools
have been packed to capac-
ity since the official start of
summer.
On a recent stop at the
Freeport City pool, I counted
over 125 adults and children,
crowded in and around the
newly-openedfacility. It is
where you go to be seen if you
are a kid, and the place to
cool off and take a break from
the kids being out of school,
if you are an adult.
Both Big Kahuna's and
Shipwreck Island, are in full
swing and are open week-
long until Labor Day week-
end. Both have a variety of
rides and attractions, special
events, places to eat, sunning
areas, water activities, and
most of all a professional and
trained group of lifeguards.
The local waterparks are
one of the best ways to cool
off, get some sun and enter-
tain the kids now that sum-
mer holiday is in full swing.

According to Florida Fish an

both positive and negative e

The cycle of floods an

are dependent on this cycle t
maintain healthy fish and wil
life populations. The long-ten
benefits of droughts and flooc
often exceed the short-ter
negative effects.
"Short-term droughts prol
ably are more beneficial to fresi
water fish and their habitat
than they are harmful," sai
Fred Cross, regional freshwater
fisheries biologist in the FWC
regional office in Panama City
The drought exposes lake bo
toms and dries up the muck thi
has accumulated. Desirable vei
etation expands into deepwate
portions of lakes and rivers, an
seeds germinate on exposed lak
bottoms. However, during
drought, invasive and exot:
plants such as hydrilla can bE
come more of a problem. It als
provides the opportunity to us

vegetation in the wetlands. Th
creates open water habit'a
which helps water quality an
reduces the potential for wilh
fires, according to Cross.
While water levels are lov
boat ramps, docks, seawalls an
other structures can be repaired
Marine species are able to g
much farther upstream in som
river systems, providing add
tional fishing opportunities t
freshwater anglers.

Droughts can reduce the aqu
fer level, allowing sink holes t
form and drain lakes. Salinil
increases in tidal creeks ma
stress fish, and low water leve
can trap fish, resulting in fis
kills from low dissolved oxygen
according to biologists.
During these times of low we
ter levels, boaters need to exe
cise extreme caution to prevent
striking an underwater object
