.m. Fri- at the De:Funiak Springs
ith the City Council meeting, as two
'iff's Of- variance :requests from
Depart- Lowe's Home Center were
ment on brought be fore the council.
No decision was made on
S the requests per recommen-
dation of city staff members.
A June 22 memo from Kirby,
Assistant City Manager
Larry Lai rd, and Planning
Director Greg Scoville, un-
solved questions regarding
the development were noted,
particular ly the fact that the
develop r, Southern Civil
Engineers (SCE), has yet to
submit a.iApplication for De-
velopmerit Approval (ADA),
otherwise known as a site
o plan review.
"Ther'e does not appear to
be suffig ient information for
staff to rn nake a recommenda-
tion for approval," the memo
said. "The issues described
above should be addressed
and the requests brought
back to council for consider-
ation." i
Bob 'Vance, representing
SCE w*as in attendance at
the mee ting and said, "I don't
want to charge Lowes for
full-blown engineering. If
you can't get the land re-
zoned, if you can't get the
;. varianc-es, why buy it?"
The first of the variances
natural requested by SCE would
Park on eliminate required building
'ements found&ition planting and in-
stead 1 aave a parking lot with
landscape islands every ten
spaces ;.
The second variance
would' reduce the required
parkilig from 436 spaces to
356 diue to the size of the lot
just olffof U.S. 331 on which
the st ore would be built.
Contancil staff has already
-icles at conceded a certain number of
ess oth- parki ng spaces based on the
vehicless square e footage of the store.

on and ing space per 400 square feet

square feet per receiving
A area. floor space.


"The land- is only so big
and I have so many parking
spaces I can put there," said
Vance. "I need to know if I
can approve it before I take
it back to them."
City staff also noted that
approving the variances this
early in the development pro-
cess miay set a bad example
for future development in the
city.
Scoville also noted that
without a full site plan, it is
unknown what further is-
sues may need to be ad-
dressed with the city.
"We'd rather sit down with
them once they have their
plan to make sure what vari-
ances they need," said
Scoville. "Without plans, may
need future variances, which
would delay the development
even further."
Local realtor Bruce
Naylor, who is representing
Lowe's in thel development
said, "Lowe's has prototypes
they develop based on size of
the land and size of the mar-
ket. They're not going to
change their prototype for
DeFuniak Springs. They're
going to say, 'Shoot, we tried.
If we can't get the prototype
to fit into 11.5 acres,' then
Lowe's isn't coming here."
Art Frizell, co-owner of
Consolidated Ace Hardware
said in response to Naylor, "I
was with them until they
said we have to fit their pro-
totype. I'd welcome them. It's
coming. I'd help them. It'd
affect my business and many
others. But we're growing,
and them coming would be a
good thing."'
Vance made it clear that
Lowe's did want to come, and
that Naylor did not speak for
SCE.
"What I see here is a fail-
ure to communicate," said
Mayor Pro-Tempore James
Huffman. "We need to see if
we can work this out before.
we decide."
"I tend to agree with Mr.
Huffman," said council mem-
ber Don Harrison. "I support
it, the people support it, but
I think we can sit down and
bring some more information
together and get a more com-
plete package of waivers."
Huffman then responded,
saying, "I'm not qualified to
make these decisions, and I
think it's time we support our
staff who have made a rec-

Fannin's Restaurant


gets article in Southern


Living magazine.


by REID TUCKER
John Ohagan of Southern
Living magazine made the
trip from Birmingham to De-
Funiak Springs just in time
-for the Friday lunch rush at
Fannin's Restaurant on SR-
83. Sometimes when it gets
busy, the waitresses sing.
Ohagan was part of a
writer and photographer
team writing an article on
family restaurants between
corporate headquarters in
Birmingham and the Gulf.
"Despite the nature of the
team, the writer and the pho-
tographer seldom travel to-
gether," Ohagan said.
Ohagan had already stopped
off at Annie's, a popular res-
taurant in Luverne, AL., and
several stops in Santa Rosa
County. Fannin's was the fi-
nal stop on what he called a
"four or five- day photograph-
ing period." Ohagan prefers
to do his photography this
way so that "everything
makes sense geographically."
Why the trip to Fannin's?
"We basically do articles on
[the collective] Southern
heritage," Ohagan said. He
explained that Fanni in'-. and
restaurants like it, are very
much a part of that heritage.
Northwest Florida Daily
News columnist Colleen
Coffield said in a 1997 article
that restaurants like
Fannin's are places where
people can come and social-
ize without needing reserva-
tions or dressing up. "The one
exception we have," Ohagan
said, "is that we never do
chain restaurants." .1
Ohagan said that people
are heading for the white
sands of the Gulf, and "part
of going to the beach is stop-
ping for to eat along the way.
Most of the people who come
down this way from Alabama
will stop around here for
lunch. Part of what we do is
show people where to eat."
Waitress Julie Garret added,
"If you're looking for a good
home-cooked meal, Fannin's
is the place to be."
Southern Living's objec-
tive was to provide in-depth
coverage of the restaurants
on its list, through words and
photography. Ohagan took
pictures of the exterior of the
building, the interior, the cli-
entele during crowded times
of the day, different angles of
typical plates, and the
kitchen and preparation ar-
eas. "I wear a hair net if I
have to," he said.
The staff of Fannin's is
known for its hospitality. Ev-
eryone coming through the
door was greeted like old
friends. Fannin's has no
shortage of regulars. One is
Tracey Owens. Asked what it
was that brought him back
to the restaurant, Owens
said, "For me, it's got to be
the mullet. If we work in the
area, we always try to stop
by here for lunch."
Fannin's owners, Roger
and Geraldean Fannin, oper-
ate the restaurant along with
several other family mem-
bers. For Geraldean, it's not
just the atmosphere that
brings people back. It has a

lot to do with the meal itself.
"It's a decent meal," she said.
Fannin's has, instituted what
it calls the IPo' Man's Buffet
and Po' Man's Lunch. The
former cons ists of one meat,
two vegetables, and a roll
and a drink.. The latter is a
sandwich with fries and a
drink. The total runs up to
just above $4 with tax. The
most expensive item served,
the Friday and Saturday
evening all-you-can-eat
shrimp and oyster plate, is
$12. Price is of key interest
to Ohagan's article, being an
important aspect in giving a
comprehensive assessment
of the restau rant. "A lot of
working-clasts and elderly
people come in here, and they
can't afford to pay a lot of
money for lunchh" Fannin
said, adding thLat costs to the
restaurant haven't lessened
any with curre nt fuel prices.
After taking- photographs
of a large palate of food,
Ohagan actually got to sit
down and eat it. He re-
marked to no one in particu-
lar, "That was great." Garret
asked him if everything was
all right, to which.he replied,
"It's about what I expected.
Really, really gond. It's worth
the exercise to work it off so
you can come bat ck. This is a
good job to have"
The waitresses did sing on


Friday, as they're known to
do from time to time. The
staff also provided all report-
ers present with a free lunch.

My Big Fat Boomer Retirement
BYv FRUrCE COLLIER


Even if you watch televi-
sion *,,il, rarely, you must
have seen the investment
service commercials. You
know the ones, o .hi I Dennis
Hopper iiiini' in a field of
t1lu r-. or those %, 11l'hving-
clips of weedy-looking youths
dancing in 11im red polyes-
ter. Or the tL.tJiCi. weath-
ered empty-nesters planning
their eco-f'riei'iily Apache
sweat lodge (or whatever) in
the Arizona desert. No, it's
not the History CI annel., it's
the Baby Boomers again.
Just when you thought
they'd finally gotten over
themselves and mellowed
into their emeritus years,
they're front and center. This
time it's not another
Woodstock retrospective, or a
Hunter S. Thompson sympo-
sium and gun show. The
boomers are retiring. The sa-
cred band is split ing up.
Aside from the gold watch,
testimonial dinner, and some
mildly humorous bumper
stickers, the average Ameri-
can retirement ritual is
pretty casual. One day you
stop showing up at work,
someone else gets your park-
ing spot, you mothball your
suits, and try your hand at
relaxing into "the Golden
Years." If you've planned for
it, you travel, golf, visit those
places you always wanted to
see, and let the parade pass
you by, and welcome.
But not "My Generation."
The Boomers can't shuffle off
this mortal coil or any other
coil without putting on a
huge, over-hyped rock festi-
val of a farewell. Call it
RetirementStock. The gen-
eration that will surely rank-
as the most over-indulged
and over-analyzed in Ameri-
can history just has to make
one more trip to the end of
the diving board. "Watch me!
Watch me! Watch me!"
Baby Boomers are, simply,
persons born between 1946
and 1964. Assuming retire-
ment at age 65 (not a safe as-
sumption anymore), 2011
will see the first of them be-
ing herded toward the barn.
Characteristically, theirs is
being carefully crafted as
something of far greater im-
port than any previous re-
tirement in the history of the
world. No slippers and day-
time TV for these warrior
poets. They'll be out in the
streets (power walking, and
heaven help you if you get in
their way), overhead (gliding,
of course save the gas for
those six SUVs), and doing
their operatic best for the en-
vironment, animal rights,
AIDS research, and anything
else on the buffet of their so-
cial consciousness.
They'll have to rest, of


course. That will give them
time to reflect on the accom-
plishments of their genera-
tion. Like the civil rights
movement. No, wait. That
was spearheaded by Martin
Luther King Jr., who short-
sightedly got himself born in
1929. And as for Rosa Parks,
she was born in 1913. What
were they thinking?
Feminism, right? Sorry,
Boomers. Gloria Steinem
was born in 1934, Betty
Friedan in 1921. Not that
either of them invented
American feminism. That
would have to go to a trio of
real old fogeys Susan B.
Anthony (born 1820), Carrie
Chapman Catt (born 1859)
and Victoria C. Woodhull
(born 1838), among count-
less others, some even ear-
lier than that, in other coun-
tries.
I could go on in this wise
guy vein, but I won't. The
Boomers did produce two
presidents Bill Clinton and
George W. Bush. Hmmm.
For the rest, go the
Wikipedia article on Baby
Boomers. Yes, I know,
Wikipedia is boneless wis-
dom for weak teeth, but
that's partly my point.
There's a Boomer who's who
list called "Famous People."
Of the 22 names on the list,
there's one scientist (radio-
chemist Ronald Colle), two
entrepreneurs (Richard
Branson and Bill Gates),
one athlete (Michael Jor-
dan) and 18 musicians, ac-
tors, comedians and enter-
tainers. Among these are
such titans as Twiggy,
Howard Stern, Ozzy
Osbourne, Stevie Nicks, and
that drummer for Led Zep-
pelin, you know, what's-his-
name?
Sorry, but the Beatles
didn't make the chronologi-
cal cut. Likewise Dr. Timo-
thy Leary, Carl Rogers, or
Ken Kesey.
So, to all you retirees
about to go so very ungently
into that good night, just
what did you do? You talked
a good game. You still do.
And relax, no one will ever
make a connection between
your generation's popular-
ization of recreational drug
use and the current crip-
pling state of narcotics
abuse in America. As for
your retirement, pay atten-
tion to those TV spots and
keep thinking of yourselves
as the generation that chal-
lenged authority, redefined
the rules, and just kept on
truckin'.

After all, in the words of
Pete Townshend (b. 1945,
oops, close one!), you won't
get fooled again.

Editor,
The county commissioners will not help Juniper Lake Es-
tates subdivision owners with their roads. I've called my Dis-
trict 3 commissioner two times and yet to this day has he
taken the time to return my calls? It's amazing that when he
needs votes, he's Johnny-on-the-spot.
Here's a little story. Juniper Lake Estates is a recorded sub-
division with the state of Florida and Walton County. It was
built and approved by both departments in 1975. Since then,
there are over 70 homes, and more people are moving here.
District 3 will not maintain the roads that our school buses,
garbage pick-up services, mailman, and county vehicles use
daily. The city has water lines running on every road, as well
as CHELCO power company. The infrastructure is in place
and now District 3 needs to start paving and grading these
highly-used roads.
Here's why. They have already paved some roads, only to
reach another subdivision with a higher tax income. They say
that our roads are not their concern. If that's the case, then
why did they pave roads in other areas such as Cat Island
Road, Squirrel Drive, Wesley Road and Serenity Circle? These
roads are located in an unrecorded subdivision having only
33' roadway. In fact, just over a month, I went out to Cat Is-
land Road and found that they are repaving these roads again.
Oakwood Lakes Estates was owned and approved by the
state and county around the same time. It was owned by the
same developer. Once the developer sold out to a local inves-
tor, they have paved and maintained their roads. You can see
this being done m monthly. .. ..
Several years ago, I went to the county meeting and when I
used the original name of the developer Vista Florida LTD,
they said they didn't like the people and would not help. The
county administrator was there, he knows! Here's an update
for District 3 and the rest of the board members, Vista FL.
has sold out three years ago. But yet we get no services other
than a yearly tax notice that our property values have gone
up and "here, pay your taxes."
I live out here and have watched employees sitting in the
county trucks during winter time, waiting to shoot a deer!
When they paved Oakwood Road about five years ago, they
took the culvert out going to my home. Since then, every time
it rains, it washes-the clay out from under Oakridge Road.
They even put down rolls of sod, and within a year, I had to
call them saying that the road needs fixing. Guess what they
did? They took a road-grader and uprooted all the new grass.
Now when it rains, Oakridge Road starts crumbling apart,
sand covers part of the road. What a waste of money!
I'm asking that District 3 start maintaining these roads
and fix Oakridge Road. All they need to do is to put back the
culvert and make a concrete gutter to their underground drain,
which leads to Juniper Lake. Pave the highly-used roads where
the school buses and mailman will not get stuck.
They are renewing the 10-year 1-cent tax which is to be
used for roads, please start using it here. I'm writing this be-
cause my commissioner will not return my calls.

Editor,
Recently on a dark and foggy night, Cheyenne, Lucky Sail,
Cee Bar, Lakota, and last but not least, our miniature donkey
named Itsy, went for a stroll on Bob Sikes Road. You guessed
it, our horses and Itsy made the "Great Escape." Of course,
my daughter and I slept through the whole ordeal, until 5
a.m. when Debbie burst through my door screaming, "they're
gone," they're gone!"
As we're running to the truck, Deb on her cell calling the
sheriff's department, and me flashing horrible thoughts of
what could be happening to some innocent person or persons
on their way to work, not to mention an injured or dead horse,
it was one of the scariest moments of our lives.
We wish to thank Jimmy Anderson who skidded and barely
missed hitting them and for calling the sheriff's department
and staying until the deputies arrived. To Eleanor and Roger
Frick, and their dog, Jay, whose sleep was disturbed and for
the use of their yard, and especially the deputies who went
above and beyond duty for dealing with thousand pound ani-
mals in a tense and strange environment. For those who own
horses, you know what I'm talking about.
Deputy Vennie Anderson, Deputy Bruce Maddox, Deputy
Dewie Adams, Deputy Warren McIntire, who was called at
his home at 4 a.m. and drove from Santa Rosa Beach to tran-.
quilize Lakota, who refused to be caught, and Capt. Jason
Adkinson. You took a probable tragedy and turned it around
to a happy ending. You are our heroes.
Debbie and I drove to the "Horse Jail" to bail our hooligans
out. They were intensely looking over the bars, glad to see
familiar faces, and I'm sure, thinking, "Wow, wait until you
hear what happened to us last night."
Debbie and I wish to thank, with all our hearts, the kind-
ness of neighbors and deputies involved in the "Great Escape."

Dorothy Rogers,
Debbie Cooper

Editor,
The editorial "Asleep in Walton" (Daily News, June 21)
makes a valid point. Why, with an impending nine percent
budget cut, is the county buying park land? The money would
be better spent to obtain a site for the deposit of dredge
material. The lack of such a site is the major hold-up to dredg-
ing LaGrange Bayou. If the bayou is dredged, Freeport Ship-
building Co. can expand their operation and increase their
number of employees. This would contribute to the county's
economy and increase the tax base. Additionally, operation
costs for Murphy Oil Co. and CEMEX Co. would be reduced.
This would result in a net gain all around.
The sleep problem seems to have manifested itself in other
areas. Apparently, the county is moving forward with an ini-
tial investment of $300K to duplicate services already pro-
vided by the Council on Aging.
The Wee-Care Park, the intent of which was to provide
recreation for all ages, has never been completed. The origi-
nal design included a senior center ('life enrichment center'
now seems to be the preferred phrase). Abandonment of the
initial site location for the new jail before returning to the
original plan resulted in the final cost being millions of dol-
lars over the original estimate.
Finally, six years down the road, citizens are still waiting
for the promised animal control facility. Other examples ex-
ist, the courthouse for one, but these should convey the idea.

Editor:
Walton County commissioners on July 10 are having a
meeting on what may be our last chance to save our public
beach that a few people from Surfside and
Majestic Sun are trying to steal from us.
This beach, we taxpayers have paid for all these years.
We, the taxpayers, have paid to rebuild the dunes many times
and the beach renorishment, millions of dollars. This area
has been unsafe for many years. The Walton County com-
missioners are finally trying to make this area nicer and
safer with parking in a way so all of us can enjoy it. The
commissioners have a grant from the state to help pay for
most of it.
There are a very few people whom are trying to not only
stop the commissioners., but take this beach for themselves.
This action is going to cost us taxpayers about a million dol-
lars plus and we could forever lose this beach. This is an
outrage. These few people, but enough to fill the commission
room (and that's all), don't own any more of this beach than
you and I, but they now want to put up a fence to keep us off.
This area of land is in front of Seascape, next to the Whale's
Tail. Nobody likes to have things stolen from them, but this
time we have a chance to stop the crooks before they rip us
off. Please, enough of our beach is blocked-off already.
This is our beach unless we cannot get support to save it.
Let's send Majestic Sun condo, Surfside condo and the owner
of Charlie's Grill in Surfside condo, their main leader, a mes-
sage. Call your commissioner and tell them that you will
either be there to support their efforts to place safer park-
ing for everyone to enjoy this beach area. Or you can email
them or show up July 10.
Please lets stop these shark attacks. Email Cindy Mead-
ows at mecindy-@co.Walton.fl.us. 622-3059 or contact your
newspaper for the other
commissioners.

By JOSHUA SMITH
The Sunday morning ser-
vice at Saint Agatha's Epis-
copal Church had a special
flavor to it this week, as the
Rev. Ashmun Brown pre-
formed his final Eucharist
before going into retirement.
"Saint Agatha's has been
a wonderful home to Rita and
me for a number of years,"
Brown said in his weekly
message included in the or-
der of worship. "We leave
because we are convinced
that this is the time that God
intended for us to leave."
Led by what some called
an "unusually large" altar
party, Brown preformed a
baptism as well as the
weekly Sunday Eucharist.
In his sermon, Brown
said, "If there's anything I'd
want you to remember from
my time at Saint Agatha's,
it's love. It's why he made us,
it's why we're here, it's what
we do."
The passing of the peace,
or greeting time, was noted
by many to be, "the longest
they've ever had," with the
full house of parishioners
wishing to greet Brown.


At first,

it was all about the rate.

Lakes, docks and dams -

an update on Juniper

Lake's restoration


By LAKEN DAVIS
In July 2006, the Juniper
Lake drawdown valve was
opened to begin partially
draining the 665-acre area.
The project was initiated by
the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC). The purpose of the
drawdown was to expose and
dry-out organic sediment de-
posits on the lake's bottom
and to expose some of the
lake's vegetation to winter
conditions, to freeze, said
Bob DeMauro, a fisheries bi-
ologist with the commission.
He has been working with
the Juniper Lake project for
nearly five years. However,
this is not the only project
under way at the site.
The state-owned lake was
built in the 1960s by the
FWC, Walton County and
soil conservation services,
DeMauro said. Man-made
lakes differ from naturally
occurring bodies of water in
that they do not have natu-
ral water fluctuations, he
said. Because man-made
lakes remain more stable
over the years, they are sus-
ceptible to collecting a
buildup of organic sediments
that cause the lakes to fill in
and become slightly shal-
lower. The sediment buildup
also creates an environment
that promotes vegetation
growth.
The problem 'with an over-
growth of vegetation is that
it makes the lake difficult to
navigate by anglers and also
provides a hideaway for
small fish to escape from
predators, Demauro said.
This makes it harder for
larger fish to find food, which
can throw off the balance of
the fish population, creating
an over abundance of prey
fish, and a lack of predator
fish.
"One way we combat this
problem is to periodically do
drawdowns," DeMauro said.
He said with most man-
made lakes, these draw-
downs are done every five to
seven years. However, until
now, it had been more than
20 years since the last draw-
down was done at Juniper
Lake. The reason that it has
been so long, DeMauro said,
is because the last time it
was done, in the 1980s,
drought conditions occurred,
and it took nearly two years
for the lake to refill. He said
this did not go over well with
lake-side homeowners and
other residents of the com-
munity. Since that time,
there has been a lot of oppo-
sition from the community to
do another drawdown. How-
ever, the dry conditions were
out of the commission's con-
trol, he said.
During the last two to
three years, the FWC has
been trying to educate com-
munity members through
public meetings, explaining
that drawing the lake down
is inconvenient, but has to be
done.
"This is one of those neces-
sities that you have to do to
be able to maintain the lake,"
he said. After explaining
what had to be done and why,


DeMauro said the commu-
nity members agreed.
The water-control valve
was opened in July 2006 and
closed in March 2007.
DeMauro said that with nor-
mal rainfall, which the area
has not been getting, the lake
will refill in nine to 12
months.
Now that the water level
is down about seven feet from
its normal impoundment
level, the sediment buildup is
being exposed to the sun and
air in order to reduce the or-
ganic matter and keep the
vegetation from taking over.
The plant that is the big-
gest problem is lemon
bacopa, DeMauro said. In
some areas, he said, the or-
ganic sediments are 10 to 15
feet deep. Because the water
in Juniper Lake is so clear,
wherever sunlight can hit on
the bottom, vegetation will
grow. Certain types of veg-


etation can be beneficial, but
the lemon bacopa doesn't
have any really good quali-
ties for this lake, from a fish-
ery standpoint, DeMauro
said.
"As widespread as it is
now, it chokes off navigation


and it makes access real dif-
ficult," he said.
A second project in
progress is maintenance of
the water-control structure,
DeMauro said. The valves
that have been on it since the
lake was constructed will be
replaced, and the structure
will be pressure washed and
cleaned. Also, areas of the
concrete that might need to
be resurfaced will be
patched. A trash guard will
be added, as well. In the past,
a small-meshed grate was
used to allow for water out-
flow during wet conditions.
However, it was susceptible
to being clogged by leaves
and pine straw. Now, a
larger-meshed device will be
put in place to allow the
small debris to pass, but pre-
vent large limbs and other
large matter from going
through. A water structure,
called a coffer dam, has been
built around the work area
to keep the space dry, but al-
low the lake to refill,
DeMauro said.
The Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection (DEP)
has also been involved with
the lake recently. Jess Van
Dyke, with the DEP, said in
January of 2006, that
$600,000 was spent to cut
stumps that had been block-
ing navigation trails
throughout the lake.
"It's going to be a different
lake because of that alone,"
he said.
As for the vegetation
growth, Van Dyke said lemon
bacopa is a native plant that
doesn't normally cause much

trouble, and is generally con-
sidered beneficial. However,
its dramatic expansion has
been a problem for Juniper
Lake.
"While the Department of
Environmental Protection
supports the drawdown be-
ing conducted by the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission, it is not
considered to be the solution
to the lemon bacopa prob-
lem," Van Dyke said. "Be-
cause Juniper Lake takes a
long time to reflood, bacopa
will still be a 'problem after
the lake is refilled."
While the lake is low, the
department wants to deter-
mine how best to reduce the


PAGE 9-A
amount of lemon bacopa in
the area. Two new herbicides
will be tested on the vegeta-
tion in small areas.Van Dyke
said it doesn't make sense for
the department to do exten-
sive weed control when lake
is drawn down. He said much
of the area is not accessible
to aquatic plant managers
who rely on airboats to ap-
ply the herbicides.
"The department is com-
mitted to fixing the bacopa
problem once the lake, is re-
filled," Van Dyke said. "The
best time to attack is at the
beginning of growing season,
usually in May, and when the
lake is full. That is the 'sweet
spot,' when you get the most

Summer construction ongoing at Walton County schools


By PATRICK CASEY
The Walton County School
Board met on Tuesday, June
19, at the Tivoli Administra-
tive Complex to discuss a
fairly light agenda that in-
cluded a capital projects up-
date and the potential shift-
ing of several principals
throughout the school dis-
trict.
The board was scheduled
to approve administrative
personnel re-employment
recommendations for the up-
coming 2007-08 school year
but will look at the issue dur-
ing a special meeting on June


26. Details were not avail-
able at press time (from the
June 26 meeting) but will
appear in the July 4 edition.
Proposed changes could in-
clude as many as seven new
principals at Walton County
schools in August.
Superintendent Carlene
Anderson opened the meet-
ing by announcing that the
Walton Career Development
Center has been certified to
accept pell grants from stu-
dents. "I appreciate the ef-
forts of all the staff at the
CDC for that, and in particu-
lar I think it says a lot for


Mrs. (Gail) Cole as she re-
tires that she has accom-
plished this before she left."
Facilities Coordinator
Mark Gardner briefed the
meeting attendees on various
projects going on around the
school district. The Bay El-
ementary School multipur-
pose gymnasium is receiving
site work with tree removal
completed and foundation
work set to begin. A silt fence
barrier has been installed as
well.
The Paxton High School
gymnasium is receiving inte-
rior paint, permanent power


has been installed in the
building and air conditioning
is in the process of drying out
the building. Exterior work
is under way for the final
touches to the facility and the
replacement flooring should
arrive soon for installation.
The project is expected to be
completed by July 31 with fi-
nal touches to the building
finished in August.
The Mossy Head School
has seen the 108-foot bridge
opened to construction traf-
fic to reach the site. Side-
walks and curbing have been
installed along the roadway


with.a permanent water line
,installed to the school site.
Foundation block has been
completed on classroom
wings with concrete slabs to
be installed this week.
The new Walton High
School has a new front park-
ing lot that is close to comple-
tion and expected to be in use
by the start of school in Au-
gust. The foundation wall on
the south end of the project,
near the tennis courts, has
been completed with founda-
tion footings coming along on
schedule. Walton's new ten-,
nis courts, located behind the


leftfield side of the baseball
stadium will have asphalt
installed in the next few
weeks.
The school board voted to
transfer the property needed
for a park in Glendale to the
Walton County Board of
County Commissioners as
was discussed at a previous
meeting.

The next regularly sched-
uled meeting of the Walton
County School Board will be
held on Tuesday, July 3 at 5
p.m. at the Tivoli Adminis-
trative Complex.


Living, breathing art

Local shop offers tattoos, graphics


By LAKEN DAVIS
Mike Young and his son,
Chris, have seen customers
come from as far away as
Mobile, Tallahassee and
Pensacola for their artistic
services. The Young's own
and operate Over the Edge
Tattoo and Graphics, the
only tattoo and graphics shop
in Walton County, according
to Mike.
The Youngs opened the
shop, located at 1504 U.S. 90
west in DeFuniak Springs, in
December 2006. Mike does
the tattooing and Chris does
the computer graphics and
design work. Chris's projects
include business card design,
letterhead design and mag-
netic sign design. About 80
percent of the shop's custom-
ers are DeFuniak Springs
residents, Mike said.
Mike has been working
with art for 30 years. "I love
doing anything to do with
art," he said.
Mike was in the tattoo in-
dustry in California before
moving to DeFuniak Springs
and opening the current
business. He said there was
too much competition in Cali-
fornia. He said people will
pay-thousands of dollars for
a tattoo there. Here, he
charges from $30 to $800 for
each sitting. Because Mike's
wife's family resides in the
area, the Youngs decided to
relocate to DeFuniak
Springs. The best part about


the business, Mike said, is
that he is his own boss.
"Business is steady, but
during the first four months,
it was crazy," he said. "Curi-
osity killed the cat." During
that time, he was doing 13 to
15 tattoos in one day, he said.
Now, he sees people coming
in to get larger, more complex
tattoos.


Mike said he enjoys doing
black and gray tattoos the
most. "I can physically put
my art on somebody's body
and be proud of it," he said.
Since January, Mike has
done about 500 tattoos. He
has tattooed people from
ages 16 to 62. He added that
he has done a lot of correc-
tive work for tattoos that


have turned out poorly from
other shops. Over the Edge
even has a computer pro-
gram that allows people to
see what a tattoo will look
like on their body before it's
permanent. Some of the most
popular designs for local resi-
dents are tribal symbols, last
names and, Confederate
flags. He added that about 70


percent of his customers
come back after their first
visit.

As for the future, Mike
said it is nice to be small. He
doesn't have plans to make
the business any bigger right
now.
However, the business will


be having a re-opening cel-
ebration on Saturday June
30 from 11 a'.m. until 3 p.m.
with free food and drinks.

DFS Council approves


proposals, appointments


DISTRICT 1 Commissioner Aide Susan Burgess and Cliff Knauer (far right) meet with
DEP representatives at Morrison Springs to look over final plans with other committee mem
bers, as they prepare for major upgrades at the park.


County to soon begin


$500k Morrison Springs


makeover


By KEN LITTLE
Citizen Service Director
The Morrison Springs Ad-
visory Committee met at
Morrison Springs on May 31
to review the plans for a new
boat ramp, boardwalks, new
restrooms, showers, and an
educational center. These
and other park improve-
ments will begin construc-
tion this year and continue
until completion. The new
boat ramp will separate the
swimmers and divers from
the boaters, while allowing
watercraft easy access to the
river. There will also be
ample parking for vehicles
and trailers.


District 1 Commissioner
Scott Brannon championed
the project with the support
of the other Walton County
Commissioners, and mem-
bers of the community who
served as a steering commit-
tee throughout th6 planning
process.
Cliff Knauer of Preble
Rish Engineering has do-
nated many volunteer hours
to the project. He volun-
teered his services to work on
the plans, design and techni-
cal details. He traveled to
Tallahassee with Walton
County representatives to
testify before the Depart-
ment of Environmental Pro-


tection, and worked on th<
land use plan that resulted
in Walton County receiving
a lease for the property from
the state. His efforts helped
the county get more thai
$500,000 in grants for parl
improvements at Morrisor
Springs.
"Everyone has worked
very diligently to make sur
this park serves our citizens
with our citizens in mind,
Commissioner Brannor
stated. "We are all anxious tc
get the construction started
and to actually see thE
changes and improvements
that will be enjoyed by many
for years to come."

Final approval of the local
cable franchise to Bright

A cemetery permit policy
resolution that will require a

The resolution was revised
from the previous city coun-
cil meeting due to concerns
over language that would re-
quire a permit for minor

- or flower placing on indi-
vidual plots.
A renewal of the intergov-
ernmental agreement with
the Florida Department of
Transportation (FDOT)
which included a reduction in
the amount of funds given to
the city for upkeep of high-

Murder case reopened


after 10 years


THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, JUNE 28, 2007


On June 21, the Walton
County Sheriff's Office
(WCSO) arrested Fred Alan
Mason, 44, of DeFuniak
Springs, after his release
from the Florida State Hos-
pital in Chattahoochee. On
July 6, 1997, Mason was ar-
rested and booked with one
open count of murder in con-
nection with the death of his
mother, Lillian Mason, 60,
also of DeFuniak
Springs. An inquiry was or-
dered into Mason's mental
condition following his ar-
rest. In December of 1997,
Walton County Circuit Court
judge Lewis Lindsey ruled
that Mason was mentally
unfit to stand trial. He was
admitted to the Florida State
Hospital's Forensic
Unit. With his release, the


CHARGED WITH SEC-
OND-DEGREE MURDER is
Fred A. Mason, 44, of DeFu-
niak Springs.

The ordinance would pro-
hibit loitering around any
park restroom, dressing
room or bath house, and
"lewd and lascivious behav-
ior" would not be allowed in
any park.
The ordinance would pro-
hibit indecent exposure-
and dressing and undressing

houses, restrooms, and other
places designated for those
purposes would be disal-
lowed.
The ordinance would pro-
hibit the removal of any "cul-
tural, historical or archaeo-
logical artifacts" from parks.
It would protect water bod-
ies from pollution and native
animals from harm or re-
moval from any park. Collec-
tion of plant specimens
would be allowable only by
special permits issued to sci-
entists, students or individu-

Swimming would be lim-

case has been reopened and
a charge of second-degree
murder has been
brought. Mason is currently
being held at the Walton
County Jail.
Assistant State Attorney
Robert Elmore has been as-
signed the case. "I just got
the file," said Elmore in a
telephone interview on June
26. Elmore said that under
state law, the original charge
had to be dropped when Ma-
son was still unfit to proceed
after five years. The original
charge was dropped "without
prejudice," meaning that
Mason could be charged
again once he was found to
be competent to proceed.
Though Mason is cur-
rently charged with second-
degree murder, said Elmore,
a grand jury could be con-
vened, and Mason could pos-
sibly be indicted with first-
degree murder. Elmore de-
clined to comment on
whether the state would seek
a death penalty in the case
of a first-degree murder
charge, saying only that
death could be a "possible"
penalty. Elmore added that a
grand jury investigation
could be initiated "within a
month."
The case generated a
great deal of publicity in

1997. Lillian Mason's death
was determined to have been
the result of "blunt force
trauma," though Elmore
noted that forensic reports
indicated "lacerations" as
well.
A WCSO arrest report
made at the time of the inci-
dent stated that the Lillian
Mason appeared to have
been "bludgeoned to death."
Prior to finding her body,
deputies had arrested Mason
for "fleeing and attempting to
elude" in his mother's ve-
hicle. Bloodstains on Mason's
clothing led deputies to in-
vestigate the victim's resi-
dence, at 466 West Orange
Avenue in DeFuniak
Springs. Mason reportedly
lived in a small structure be-
hind his mother's house. Al-
though it was not mentioned
in the initial arrest report,
newspaper reports made at
the time indicated that a
brick was found, "covered
with blood and hair," at the
scene of the incident.

The WCSO report, pre-
pared by Investigator
Stephen R. Sunday, stated
that Fred Mason was in-
formed of his rights, ques-
tioned, and told investigators
that "he was responsible and
that he should be punished."

Site makes FL health care workers' life easier


Most people in Florida are
not required to have continu-
ing education to keep their'
job. However, that is not the
case for millions of health
care workers in America.
Many of these workers
must pay for continuing edu-
cation out of their own pock-
ets. Nurses, counselors, so-
cial workers and others must
fend for themselves if they
want to keep their licenses
and their jobs. Some employ-
ers will not or cannot pay the
costs for the courses.
"As a nurse with three chil-
dren, it was hard for me to
pay $50 or more per credit
hour for continuing educa-
tion classes, but if I did not
take them' I would lose my
license," said Iren Bowers, a
registered nurse from
Wadsworth, OH., and
mother of three grown chil-
dren. "Some of the classes
were given at times when I
needed to be at work or tak-
ing care of my family. I wish
there had been a resource
like this ten years ago when


my kids were smaller. I do
not know how single-parent
nurses do it today."
A new Web site from
Northwood Health Systems
is relieving the financial and
scheduling strain of continu-
ing education for Florida
health care workers. The
company offers more than
1,,000 accredited online
courses for free.
State licensing boards typi-
cally require such profession-
als to get 24 to 50 credit
hours of continuing educa-
tion every two years. Health
care continuing education
classes are designed to keep
medical professionals, up to
date on current trends and to
refresh their health care
knowledge. Each state re-
quires different number of
classes or hours to keep par-
ticular licenses current.
The courses, available at
www.northwoodhealth.com,
provide continuing education
credits to professionals,in-
cluding registered nurses,
licensed practical nurses,


nurse practitioners, sub-
stance abuse counselors, case
managers, crisis interven-
tion specialists, outpatient
therapists, supportive coun-
selors and social workers.
"We believe this is the
greatest number of free
health care continuing edu-
cation available anywhere on
the web," Pete Radakovich,
Northwood's president and
chief executive officer, said.
"This may be the only Web
site of its kind."
According to the National
Human Resources Associa-
tion, Americans spend more
than $2 billion a year on em-
ployee education. Many pro-
fessionals must pay for con-
tinuing education costs on
their own without help from
their employers.
As an example of the
course offerings, someone in
nursing interested in the
subject of depression could
choose from 34 courses rang-
ing from one unit of continu-
ing education credit to 18.5
units. Students can search


for appropriate courses in
four employment categories,
including nursing, social
work, professional counsel-
Sing and addiction counseling.
"These offerings from
Northwood will help me keep
my license current and I will
not have to worry about the
cost," said registered nurse
Florence B. Culler of
Bradenton, FL. "With the
courses being online, I can
take them at any time. It is
very convenient."
Mark Games, director of
operations for Northwood,
said the company's online
courses also provide an op-
portunity for the general
public to learn about medi-
cal issues and information.
"We have had several non-
professionals take the classes
in an effort to better under-
stand a medical condition, or
situation," he said.

Two children who had

However, the children have
been removed from their cus-

FROM FRONT


the night was the loss of sev-
eral of these quality admin-
istrative leaders to different
schools throughout the
county. Several Freeport par-
ents spoke on the loss of
Dickey from Freeport to
Maude Saunders with con-
cern as to his replacement
and the loss of his unique
qualities in leadership.
Students from Walton
High School also attended
the meeting and spoke in
support of retaining Mike
Davis as the school's princi-
pal.
In the end, the meeting
left many with questions,
and for some, a sense. of frus-
tration after the transfers
were all passed.
Board member Darrell
Barnhill stated during the
meeting, "I am not willing to
gamble with somebody's ca-
reer by voting no to the
Superintendent's recommen-
dation. She has given me no
indication that she will
change her mind and I don't
see that we have just cause."
Board member Bill Laird
supported that theory as
well.
Chairman Mark Davis ar-
gued -that just because the
superintendent can transfer
doesn't mean that she


should. "I feel strong enough
about all of them. These are
all involuntary transfers."
Sharon Roberts added,
"We have an obligation to the
public to keep the best inter-
est of our.schools and our citi-
zens, as well as its children."
Mildred Wilkerson told.
the audience that she felt Su-
perintendent Anderson was
doing the best she could to
educate, children in Walton
County. "I am out here for
one reason, and one reason
only: for everyone to get a
quality education in Walton
County. (Superintendent)
Anderson saw fit to do this,
changing people who are
highly qualified to help other
schools. We can sit here all
night and argue about this,
but it was her choice. If we
come back again, it will still
be her choice."
When asked by Sharon
Roberts if she would change
her recommendation for
Tracey Dickey to be moved
from Freeport Elementary
School, Anderson responded,
"Not at this time."
Board members will face
approving three more princi-
pals in July as positions have
to be filled at Walton Middle
School, Freeport Elementary.
School and Bay Elementary. '


Bonifay.



assistant chief


suspended


By MARK JENKINS
WMBB TV13
The Bonifay assistant po-
lice chief has received pun-
ishment for falsifying
records. Assistant Police
Chief Joe Sallas admitted to
falsifying training records for
Chief Bennett and another
officer. This is a charge that
could cost Sallas his job.
Last week, the Bonifay
City Council gave Chief
Bennett two weeks to deter-
mine a worthy
punishment. Bennett re-
turned to the Council meet-
ing after a week of delibera-
tion.
On June 14, Bonifay
Mayor Fred Howell sus-
pended both Sallas and Chief
of Police Ronnie Bennett un-
til the Council could take
action. The Council met the
following Monday, and voted
to reinstate the two, request-
ing that Chief Bennett re-
turn within two weeks with
punitive action.
One week later, Monday
night, June 25, Sallas was
not present as Bennett made
his recommendation to the
board.
Bennett recommended
that Sallas, who trains other
officers, be stripped of his


teaching certification and
face a two-week suspension
without pay. Councilman
Rich Woodham made a mo-
tion to increase that punish-
ment to three weeks without
pay. The proposal was ap-
proved by all six councilmen,
but the mayor voted no.
News 13 was able to catch
up with his wife, Mary Sallas
who said, "He admitted he
was wrong. It (the punish-
ment) could've been worse. It
was a fair punishment. I
don't like it, but it was fair."
Chief Bennett declined to
comment, but told the Coun-
cil the punishment will be
submitted to the Florida De-
partment of Law Enforce-
ment Standards Board.
When that board meets, it -
could accept the action as is
or go one step further and re-
move Sallas' certification as
a police officer.
With Sallas suspended,
that leaves the Bonifay Po- -
lice force with only four of its
five officers, including the
police chief.

From now on, officers will
have to get training certifi-
cation in Chipley. It could
take three months for the -
FDLE to rule in the case.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, JUNE 28, 2007

Local veteran receives


Patriot of the Year award


By REID TUCKER
Lawrence Lewis manages
the Chautauqua Apartments
grounds on South 2nd Street.
His walls and rooms are filled
with his various collections:
amethyst stones, crystals,
fantasy knives, Native
American memorabilia, and
various Elvis Presley items.
One whole room, dubbed the
"war room," is filled to the
brim with paraphernalia
relating to wartime aviation,
armor (tanks, not the
medieval suits) and
photographs from different
periods in America's busy
history at war.
Lewis has no shortage of
unfortunate health
disabilities and is almost
entirely supported by the
Disabled American Veterans
(DAV), of which he is a
lifetime member, though he
manages to get around via
his walker. He is unable to
drive a car and ineligible for
a free power-chair, regularly
making the hour-long walk to
Wal-Mart or Winn Dixie,
stopping to rest along the
way due to arthritis in his
knees. As such, he is, for a
large majority of the time,
inside his home where he has
lived for the last several
years. "When you're around
the house a lot of the time,"
Lewis said, "it's nice to have
things to looks at."
Two entire walls of his
home are dedicated to what
he considers to be his life's
great achievements: one wall
stands inas a Vietnam
memorial, reminiscent of the
one he helped to establish in
Pensacola, .honoring those
who served in that conflict
from northwest Florida. The
other wall contains the
awards garnered due to his
memorial involvements and
those awarded to his father,
Ernest D. Lewis, who served
in the Merchant Marine
during World War IP. When
his service was incorporated
into the U.S. Coast Guard,
Ernest Lewis and his ship,
now equipped with a crane
and anti-aircraft cannon and
loaded with tanks and men,
participated in the D-Day
invasion of Normandy in
June of 1944. The elder Lewis
received a special citation
from the French government
for his efforts.
The'younger Lewis is not
without special citations
himself: only a few months
ago, he was awarded the
Donor of the Year Award and
on Sunday, June 10, received
an announcement in the mail
detailing his admittance of
the Help Hospitalized
Veterans organization's
Veteran of the Year award for
his commitment to the U.S.
military and the measures he
has taken to secure
awareness and memorial
observation for the sacrifice
of his fellow veterans.
Lewis has been featured in
numerous editions of both the
Herald and other area
newspapers, principally the
Pensacola News Journal, due
to his active participation in
the Vietnam veterans'
memorial constructed in that
city. Known as 'The Wall
South,' the monument is a
one-half scale model of the
larger wall in Washington
D.C., and contains the names
of over 58,000 men and
women listed as either killed-
in-action or missing-in-
action. Lewis' input in the
project was instrumental in
the completion of this
permanent memorial to area
veterans and their families.
"I was a 'Founding Father,'"
he said.
He often writes poetry
based on his wartime
experiences; some has been
published. He keeps the
original, handwritten
versions of these in a spiral
notebook along with
photographs of his time in the
service, as well as newspaper


clippings of veteran's rallies
and events, one of which
protested the Supreme
Court's ruling that it was not
unconstitutional to burn an
American flag on the grounds
of free speech. ./
The Lewis' are family of
military veterans. As Lewis
was quick to show, clearly
written on the onomastics

THE WALL commemorating the service of both Lawrence
Lewis (right) and his father, Ernest Lewis (left).


card describing his surname:
the name Lewis has its roots
in the old English words for
'great'and 'warrior.' The elder
Lewis served in the Merchant
Marine from 1939 until the
mid 1960s, where he
performed a number of
different roles within the
service in addition to he troop
deployment stint on
Normandy's beaches. He and
his wife moved to northwest
Florida from the Orlando
area upon the completion of
Walt Disney World. "They
came north until they saw
the sign that said "Ponce De
Leon/ DeFuniak Springs. "I
guess they just liked the
sound of the names," Lewis
said.
Lewis' father passed away
in 1985 after a battle with
stomach cancer, with the
rank of lieutenant
commander, although he was
not officially recognized as a
veteran until 1990. Though
proud of his father and his
service, Lewis said succinctly
of his father's wartime
experiences, "he never said
too much about it." Lewis
himself served for 12 years in
the Army, three of which were
in combat capacity in
Vietnam with another two
years stationed in
Mannheim, Germany. ,
Lewis volunteered for
service, though -he was not
initially encouraged to do so
by recruitment officials.
However, he was adamant
about his service and so was
dispatched to Vietnam. "The
Army didn't want me,
because I was the only
surviving member of the
family,'" Lewis said. After the
death of his half-brother in
the Korean conflict years
earlier, Lewis was the sole
remaining child in his family.
"I went anyway," he said,


"and I tried to go back again,
but the war was over by
then."
After he completed his
military tenure, Lewis still
did not give up on his military
cause, being heavily involved
in projects throughout the
1980s and '90s aimed at
honoring the sacrifices of
fellow Vietnam veterans in
both memorial and reform.
"When we came back from
Vietnam, we got called 'baby-
killer,' and things like that. If
you went to get a job, you
didn't tell them you were a
veteran," Lewis said.
Sometimes he couldn't even
go on dates with certain girls
because their parents might
have heard about one's
service in Vietnam, so
unpopular had the war
become with the general
population. Lewis feels that
showing proper respect to
military service men and
women is of the highest
priority, especially given the
circumstances quickly
aligning between the current
war in Iraq and the previous
generation's travails in
Vietnam. "I hope it [the war
in Iraq] doesn't end like
Vietnam did," Lewis said.
In addition to his work
with the Vietnam War
Memorial 'Wall South' in
Pensacola, Lewis is an active
participant with the National
Rifle Association, the
Veterans of the Vietnam War,
the Senior Citizen's League,
and supports the Cystic
Fibrosis Foundation.
Despite his dependence on
the DAV for income, Lewis
was quick to comment on the
importance of leading as
active a lifestyle as possible
under the current
circumstances, "I just can't
sit around. I just keep
trying."

Anything Goes'
musical
comedy at OWC
Local performers are re-
hearsing Cole Porter's "Any-
thing Goes," this summer's
large-scale musical produc-
tion that will be presented
July 18 -21 at the Mattie
Kelly Fine and Performing
Arts Center at Okaloosa-
Walton College (OWC) in
Niceville.
Tickets are now available
nt the box office by calling
729-6000.Theater students,
community actors and the-
ater professionals come to-
gether for this comedy, in-
cluding several actors from
Walton County.
"Anything Goes" is a light-
hearted comedy that centers
on the complicated love af-
fairs between passengers
aboard a cruise liner travel-
ing from New York to Lon-
don. "Anything Goes" fea-
tures toe-tapping melodies,
mobsters, show girls, debu-
tantes, business men, and
many disguises.
Bruce Culpepper, a profes-
sional actor from DeFuniak
Springs, will play one of the
production's lead roles,
Elisha Whitney, a successful


but .naive Wall Street
banker. R a c h a e 1
Jones of Freeport plays the
lead role of Erma, a
gangster's moll. Christian
Hataway, of Destin, and
Olivia Pooser, of. DeFuniak
Springs, both have support-
ing roles as passengers on
the cruise liner where the
musical takes shape. Zack
Kennison and Tommy
Serigne, both of Ponce de
Leon, also join the cast in
supporting roles.
This will be Culpepper's
fifth OWC production. Prior
roles at OWC include the
2005 summer musical
"Annie Get Your Gun" and
Sprint Theater productions
such as "The Dinner Party,"
"Twain by the Tale" and
"The Merry Wives of
Windsor."
Culpepper noted that
OWC's world-class theater
facility and professional per-
sonnel have helped him
"hone my skills" as a profes-
sional actor. He is thrilled
to once again take the OWC
mainstage.
Culpepper recently ap-
peared in "An Evening of
Chekhov" at the Seaside
Repertory Theatre and has
also performed at the
Pensacola Little Theater,
Chipola College, the


Act4Murder Dinner Theatre
and other regional venues.
Culpepper travels through-
out the U.S. performing and
has appeared in a variety of
television and film produc-
tions. He also created and
plays the role of "Smart Cat,"
a feline test-taking expert, in
"Be an FCAT Smart Cat", an
educational program de-
signed to help school children
improve their performance on
the state's standardized test.
Olivia Pooser of DeFuniak
Springs earned her Associate
of Arts degree from OWC in
May and has performed in
theatre productions since she
was very young. One of her
previous, roles was Mistress
Mary in "Babes in Toyland."
For her, theatre is fun, es-
pecially with a great cast.
More than 100 on-stage and
behind the scenes theater
pros will help stage the OWC
production.
Zack Kennison of Ponce de
Leon plays the purser of the
ship. Kennison described his
character as a "by-the-book
person bent on keeping
people pleased." Kennison
said the musical features a
number of well choreo-
graphed dance numbers. He
said the show will be "a high-
energy exhilarating perfor-


mance that tells the story of
love lost and love gained."
Kennison, a fine arts schol-
arship student, will start his
second year at OWC in the
fall. He is a member of Mad-
rigals and Show Choir. "Any-
thing Goes" is Kennison's
second OWC summer musi-
cal production. Kennison
plans to obtain a music de-
gree and perform profession-
ally.
Tommy Serigne, also of
Ponce de Leon, plays a Chi-
nese man named Luke in
the musical. Serigne said his
character is fun to portray
because he gets to provide
many comedic moments
throughout the production.
Serigne said, "If you want a
glimpse of the 1930s, this is
it." Serigne will be starting
his second year at OWC in
the fall.
Christian Hataway, of
Destin, is a senior at Fort
Walton Beach High School
and member of the Valhalla
Chorus. Hataway said the
production is very energetic
and the choreography "fan-
tastic". He plans to pursue a
career in acting and photog-
raphy.
Rachael Jones of Freeport
plays Erma the Moll in "Any-
thing Goes." Jones said her
character is "vivacious and


flirtatious, so I get to act a
lot because she is so differ-
ent from me." Jones said the
OWC summer production "is
a great experience for young
performers." Jones is a fine
and performing arts scholar-
ship student at OWC and an
active member of Madrigals
and Show Choir.
"Anything Goes" is filled
with melodies such as "I Get
a Kick Out of You," "It's De-
Lovely, Blow Gabriel Blow,"
"Let's Misbehave," "Easy to
Love," and "Anything Goes."
This musical will be pre-
sented in the 1987 contem-


PAGE 5-B

more dance numbers.

Church to host special speaker

sionary, wife, mother, Bible
student, writer, speaker, and

and as she speaks at women's
conferences and seminars,

treats. Her preferred topics

tual formation, contempla-
tive prayer, marriage enrich-
ment, compassion for the
poor, and global missionary
stories. She is presently


working on a Bible study on
the book of Proverbs and is
serving as an official repre-
sentative of Nazarene Com-
passionate Ministries en-
couraging people to sponsor

Our incomparable forgiveness


By DR. ROBERT M. JAYE
In life we have received
many gifts. In Micah 7:18,
there is mentioned a gift that
is greater than all others.
"Who is a God like unto Thee,
that pardoneth iniquity by
the transgression of the rem-
nant of His heritage? He
retaineth not His anger for
ever, because He delighteth
in mercy." Nothing can com-
pare with that kind of gra-
cious forgiveness..
God's forgiveness is incom-
parable because of the great-
ness of human guilt. People
are guilty of iniquity. This

Saturday,

Benefit

dinner

to be held

at VVCC
There will be a benefit din-
ner, Saturday, June 30, at the
Valley View Community
Center for Jim and Charlotte
(Griggs) Crapeau. They have
moved here temporarily from
Pensacola to help out with
her dad, James Griggs who
was diagnosed with cancer.
Since they have been here
Charlotte's husband, Jim,
has also been diagnosed with
cancer.
There will be a variety of
food to choose from.
The plates will be $5 and
will be served at 11:30 a.m.
There will also be blue-
grass groups, that will begin
singing at 10:30 a.m.

means they have taken the
straightness of God's law and
word and twisted it. We are
also guilty of sin. In all our
lives we miss the mark of glo-
rifying God. We always fall
short of His glory. We are
guilty of transgression. God
has disclosed His way to us,
and we have rebelled against
Him.
God's forgiveness is incom-
parable because of the great-
ness of His character. "Who
is a God like unto Thee." The
only ground of forgiveness
rests on the noble character
of God. There is no one like


unto the sovereign Triune
God whom we have re-
vealed to us in His holy
Scriptures. Our forgiving
God had great grace.
Nothing we can do will
bring God's forgiveness. It
all comes from the action
of the Lord Christ at the
cross, and our acceptance
of Him.
God's forgiveness is in-
comparable because of His
solution to sin's guilt. To
the repentant sinner, God
pardons iniquity and
passes over transgression.
He lifts it up and bears it


away from us. Once sin has been
forgiven, God ignores that
which is past. He does not re-
tain anger, but is rich in mercy
toward such worms as we. He
has a steadfast love for His be-
lieving people.
It is as if God treads our sins
under His feet, and casts our
iniquities into the depth of the
sea.
God continues His work all of
our lives in order to get sin com-
pletely out of our lives. Now
think about a great gift. Isn't it
the gift of God's forgiveness. Be-
lieve in the Lord Christ, and
thank Him for forgiving you!

Busch booted, Junior gets red carpet


By CHUCK HINSON
Just about as crazy as the'
upcoming presidential elec-
tions, NASCAR's latest move
has once again caught our at-
tention and caused mayhem
across the country. I am re-
ferring to last week's so-long
to Kurt Busch by Hendrick
Motorsports, and their star-
struck treatment of Dale
Earnhardt Jr., who has been.
recently "hendrickized."
This decision came weeks
after Earnhardt left his fam-
ily-run and owned business,
due to contract differences, to
become a free agent in the
world of NASCAR. But
Kenderick Motorsports saw a
heck of a lot of potential,
enough to not renew the con-
tract of one of the fastest ris-
ing stars on the circuit.
Despite not getting his con-
tract renewed, Busch is all
smiles since he is being
sought after by at least six
NEXTEL Cup owners. Many
even say that Busch has far
more opportunities than
Earnhardt due to his new
status on the racing scene
and the "no baggage" ele-
ment he brings to the table.
' Earnhardt had very strict
criteria for joining a Nextel
Cup league. He had limited
it to just the top Chevrolet
teams in NASCAR. The 32-
year-old driver only had
three choices going with the
standard seemed like the
only move.
With the move to
Hendrick's, complete chaos
has broken out with fans and
merchandise sales. At last
Sunday's Michigan Interna-


tional. people .lined up for
hours and spent hundreds of
thousands of dollars to get a
peice of racing history since
most of them will have to get
completely new wardrobes.
With all the hype, does this
mean that Earnhardt is al-
ready considered, a legend
and has surpassed his dad's
iconic status? Does it mean
that Junior will have to im-
prove drastically over this
season's negative record, or
can he just coast for another
year under the new team?
No matter what the opin-
ion is about his decision to
sign with Hendrick
Motorsports or turning his
back on the company that his
father started, fans are will-
ing to follow their hero to the
edge of the earth. They have
been defending him and his


decision. Some have even
taken off the belt buckle, re-
moved their Earnhardt sou-
venir cowboy hats and
started to rumble in the'
parking lot.
As fas as Busch is con-
cerned, his options are open,
he is free to go where he
wants and sign with any
NEXTtL Cup team. He also
has less restrictions concern-
ing what he can drive, and
being 10 years younger than
Earnhardt, he has more time
to make the decisions.
Wouldn't it be a slap in the
face that with Earnhardt
now in Busch's old spot,
Busch decides to go with
Earnhardt's family business?
With NASCAR's unsettled
and surprising year, it could
be just the icing on the race
track cupcake.

Sports news in review


Jones facing two felony
charges: After being ar-
rested and questioned last
Monday, this past Thursday,
Adam "Pacman" Jones had to
surrender to authorities in
Las Vegas to face two felony
charges in a strip club brawl
that ended with a triple
shooting last February. The
23 year-old Tennessee Titans
cornerback has faced prob-
lems before, but this latest


charge could land him in jail
for several years.
Perlozzo let go: The Balti-
more Orioles made history so
far this year as being the first
to fire their coach. The Ori-
oles let head coach Sam
Perlozzo go as the team cur-
rently sits in last place.
He left the camp with a
122-164 record, including a
70-92 record from last sea-
son. Bullpen coach Dave


Trembley will serve as in-
terim coach until further no-
tice.
Busch sent down the
road: After opening their
arms to Dale Earnhardt Jr.,
the Kendrick racing team
had to push one driver out of
their little race car family,
and it was Kyle Busch. De-
spite his contract being up,
he is now the newest free


agent on the NASCAR mar-
ket and has already had sev-
eral offers to join other top-
notch racing teams.
Sosa joins 600-homer
club: Sammy Sosa, the
former Chicago Cubs, took
the ball to the stands on
Thursday evening as he hit
homerun 600 for the Texas
Rangers during their game
against the Cubs.
After smacking the homer,


pictures of the five greats
who were members of the
elite club, including Hank
Aaron, Barry Bonds, Babe
Ruth, Willie Mays and now
Sammy Sosa were shown on
the big screen. His famous
600 came off Cub's pitcher
Jason Marquis, the 364th
pitcher that Sosa has hit
homeruns off of since joining
the pros.

Paxton Dixie Youth AAA team heads to Sebring for state tournament


By REID TUCKER
The Paxton Dixie Youth
League's 9-10-year-old age
division, known as 'AAA,'
took second place to Chipley
in the final game of the
league's All Star tournament.
Despite their runner's up
standing, Paxton will still be
sending its team to state-
level competition in Sebring,
Florida, along with tourna-
ment winner Chipley.
The tournament,, which
began Saturday, June 16,
and concluded on Saturday,
June 23, included eight
teams from surrounding ar-
eas. Paxton/Florala, Chipley,
Ponce De Leon, Graceville,
Holmes County, Cottendale,
and Marianna all partici-
pated in the tournament.
Paxton had only one loss
going into Friday's semifi-
nals, suffered at the hands of
Graceville that Thursday.
Paxton met Graceville again
in the semifinals, and
Chipley squared off against
Holmes County, with Paxton
and Chipley securing them-
selves a shot at the champi-
onship.
On the following day in
the finals, Paxton won the
first of the three games
against Chipley, but it was
Chipley who won the final
two, earning for themselves
the championship trophy.
According to Dixie Youth
League rules, the winner and
the runner up are eligible for
representation at state-level
competition, this year to be
held in Sebring. Christa

invited to attend the state-
wide tournament, only
around 12 to 14 are finan-
cially able to do so. "This is
the first time ever that this

The great-granddaddy of fish stories


By JEFFREY POWELL
Although many people
spend time on the rivers and
tributaries of
Choctawhatchee Bay, very
few people have seen one of
the area's oldest inhabitants.
The Gulf sturgeon is a spe-
cies that has existed for over
200 million years, according
to fossil records.
This ancient fish spends
most of the year in fresh wa-
ter bodies ranging from Loui-
siana to the Florida Gulf
Coast.

Gulf sturgeon are fish
with a long, cyclindrical body
embedded with bony plates
along the side, called scutes.
Sturgeon have a vacuum-like


mouth, a long snout, and
whiskers called barbels. A
sturgeon can reach eight feet
in length and weigh close to
200 pounds.

To see a Gulf sturgeon, one
feels that they are seeing
something out of the past.
This fish has remained
unchanged throughout mil-
lennia. .

The rivers and creeks
where sturgeon spawn con-
tain high levels of tannic acid
(Black Creek, Alaqua Creek)
that make the water appear
darker in color. Spawning
takes place at the headwa-
ters of these tributaries and
migrates to the lower river


during the summer.
Young sturgeon are
strictly bottom feeders. As
the fish develops, the jaws
evolve to allow adults to have
a fish diet.

Sturgeon use their scoop-
like snouts to siphon their
food, which includes tiny bot-
tom dwelling sea inverte-
brates, crustaceons and ma-
rine worms. The fish do not
feed while in rivers because
searching for food requires
excessive amounts of energy
needed for spawning.
Sturgeon are unable to re-
produce before the age of
eight to 12 years. An adult
can live as long as 25 years.
The species was listed as


threatened under the endan-
gered species act in 1991 due
to severe population decline
after years of over-fishing for
meat and caviar.
It is illegal to catch or kill
a Gulf sturgeon. Anglers
should immediately release
any sturgeon inadvertently
caught.


"The declining population
of the sturgeon is a warning
sign that the ecosystem is
changing," said
Choctawhathcee Basin Alli-
ance Project Coordinator
Phillip Ellis. "What is hap-
pening to the sturgeon is a
reflection of the changes oc-
curring in the


Choctawhagchee Bay and
the overall ecosystem in gen-
eral."
Most sightings of the Gulf
sturgeon are a result of see-
ing the creature jumping out
of the water. There have been
reports of injuries of people
in watercraft being injured
by a breaching sturgeon.

SWMCD


Commissioner


refutes


allegations


By JEFFREY POWELL
"South Walton Mosquito
Control District (SWMCD)
Chairman John Magee has
made many false accusations
against me," said SWMCD
Commissioner Charlie
Burke. "One of which is my
legal residence. I have been
a resident of 2780 US 98
Santa Rosa Beach for over
three years."
Burke's comments come
after accusations were made
during the SWMCD June 19
regular meeting that Burke
may not be in compliance
with state residency laws.
Those laws dictate that a per-
son holding the position of
SWMCD commissioner live
within the district they
serve.
"After discovering a ques-
tionable paper trail as to Mr.
Burke's official domicile, I
felt a fiduciary responsibility
to bring this information to
our board attorney for his ad-
vice," said SWMCD Chair-
man John Magee. Appar-
ently board attorney Allan
Ramey felt the accusation
were valid enough, to ask
Supervisor of Elections
Bobby Beasley to investigate
the matter.
Beasley acknowledged
that he was looking into the
matter at Ramey's request. "I
am just checking the facts,"
said Beasley. "We want to
keep everything above
board."
Burke has also made some


"Magee's actions
are a ploy to distract
peoples attention
from the budget is-
sues at hand. Those
issues include the
SWMCD director's
salary." SWMCD Com-
missioner Charlie Burke.


accusations of his own.
"Magee's actions are a ploy
to distract people', attention
from the budget issues at
hand," Burke contends.
"Those issues include the
SWMCD directors salary."
A decision has not been
made as of this time on how
to proceed with future meet-
ings as Burke refused to re-
cuse himself from the last
meeting. Magee stated that
there may be a need to call a
special meeting due to the.
fact that the board must sub-
mit a budget to the Depart-
ment of Agriculture by July
15.
Regardless of how the
situation is resolved Magee
would just like to get on with
the business at hand. "This
is not something I find plea-
sure in," Magee stated.
"However, as chairman of the
SWMCD, the issue needs to
be resolved.".

Declaring the Emerald
Coast as the most lucrative
market in a vacation empire,
ResortQuest announced last
week a move of their corpo-
rate headquarters from
Nashville, TN. to Fort Wal-
ton Beach.
"We're home," said Park
Brady, president and CEO of
ResortQuest. RequestQuest
comprises 12 companies and
the return to the area is sim-
ply a return to the original
roots of the company that be-
gan with the $34 million dol-
lar purchase ofAbbot Resorts
in 1998. The purchase, which
was part of Gaylord Enter-
tainment,, soon began the
company's largest business
unit. Recently, Gaylord En-
tertainment sold off
ResortQuest for $35 million
and the company is set on
changing its direction to a lo-
cally owned and operated
business.
Brady said the' move
would enable the company to
focus on local partnerships
by using local vendors and
expanding its payroll by
some $3 million and at least
26 new positions immedi-
ately in accounting and man-
agement, and possibly more
in the future. The company
currently has about 1,100
employees, including sea-
sonal workers.
One of the major changes
is the addition of Lino
Maldonado as vice president
of operations for Northwest
Florida: In his new position,
Maldonado will be respon-
sible for the day-to-day op-
erations of the company. As
a Northwest Florida local
and community leader, he
brings 10 years experience in
the vacation rental industry
to ResortQuest.
As such he will be respon-
sible for the day-to-day op-
eration of about 3,000 units
spanning from Panama City
Beach to Orange Beach, AL.
Echoing the CEO,
Maldonado said, "We're
home. We want to reconnect
with our local partnerships.
We're getting back to the ba-
sics and simplifying our busi-
ness in order to provide
seamless operations,"
Maldonado said. "We're al-
lowing our employees to take
ownership- of success by em-
powering them with the re-
sources necessary to quickly
respond to guests' and own-
ers' expectations. Our em-
ployees are the local 'experts'
that will provide the oppor-
tunities for our company to
grow. If you have happy em-
ployees, people will come
back. We sell vacations and
if we can't do that we
shouldn't be in business."

announced ResortQuest was moving its corporate headquar-
ters taoFort Walton Beach from Nashville, Tenn. last week.:

LINO MALDONADO is the new vice president of operations

ResortQuest is the largest
vacation rental company in
Florida. The call center on
Mary Esther Cut-off houses
a 24-hour call center, a laun-
dry that cleans some 80,000
pounds of laundry each day
and a mail room that sends
out more than.2 million
pieces of mail annually.


In addition to selling va-
cations, the company em-
ploys more than 100 real e-;
tate professionals who sel-l
about 70 percent of Resort
Quest's listings annually. In
2006, sales totaled $800 mil-
lion from 17 sales offices from
Perdido Key to Panama City'

No easy answers to Eastern Lake issues


By LEAH STRATMANN
There has been much
written of late of what action,
if any, should be taken on
Eastern Lake, one of the 15
globally rare coastal dune
lakes found in Walton
County.
On the one hand are the
members of the Eastern
Lake Neighborhood Associa-
tion (ELNA) who want the
county to take action and dig
out the outfall area, which
they claim has been blocked
since May'2005 when one lo-
cal landowner illegally cre-
ated sand dunes using'con-
struction grade sand. The
landowner, Worth Williams,
was cited for this illegal ac-
tion by the county and the
Florida Department of Envi-


ronmental Protection
(FDEP) and ordered to re-
move the sand. However,
tropical storm Arlene and
Hurricane Dennis moved the
sand into the lake for him.
ELNA claims these storms
have dammed up the outfall
and has played a part in the
reeds and grasses growing
unchecked in the lake.
Tedd Wilson said this dam
has resulted in "no saltwater
fish, crabs, shrimp or wildlife
to migrate to the lake, which
they have done for decades.
Five years ago we could catch
seven to eight crabs per
week. I would guess the crab
(population) has been re-
duced by 80 percent," he said.
Further Wilson says that
within one to two years the
grass growing on the bottom
will be above the docks many
of the homeowners have and
the grasses will impede the
use of boats on the lakes. Not
all of the lakes permit the use
of motorized craft, but East-
ern Lake is an exception.
"If the lake were dredged
and the lake started to out-
put to the east, the saltwa-
ter should destroy the
grasses. The opinion now is
that it may be too late," Wil-
son said. Wilson also said the
lake has completely stopped
popping off to the Gulf of
Mexico as it should.
Brenda Rees disagrees
with Wilson's assessment,
saying, "The lake has been
popping off during the last
two years and saltwater has
come in, but perhaps in not
the large amounts of the
past. I have caught saltwa-
ter fish and crab in the lake
during the last year," she
said. "However, my opinion is
the lake should not be forced
open to the east, regardless
of what property owners
want. Eastern Lake has
opened on its own and there
has been an exchange of salt
water. Excessive opening,
sometimes at midnight by
unknown individuals,
may be a cause for some of
the problems. This should
stop," Rees asserted.
Apparently the county
agrees citizens should stop
meddling with the lake and
is preparing to post signs
around all the lakes warning
that it is illegal to tamper
with them.
Bill Mancil, a retired en-
gineer living on the lake
since 1984 said, "There are
200 of us on one side of the
issue and three on the other


Day cleanup
Volunteers are invited to
come for some good clean fun!
Meet at the beach at one of
the regional beach accesses
at 8:00 a.m. on Thursday,
July 5. Accesses can be found
at Miramar, Dune Allen,
Blue Mountain Beach,
Grayton Beach, Santa Clara
in Seagrove Beach, Eastern
Lake, SeaCrest, and Rose-


side. There is not enough of
an amount of saltwater com-
ing in to do any good. The
salinity has dropped 80 per-
cent in the last two years. We
don't get mullet any more at
all. When the lake opens
properly it gets lots of salt-
water. All we want to do is
get the sand out of there and
then let nature operate the
lake. With a hurricane or
two, the lake might fix itself,
but I don't know.
"There's a lot said about
people, not county employ-
ees, opening the lake at
night. The county holds a
permit to open the lake if the
lake's elevation is more than
3.5 feet. When the water gets
to about the time the county
would open it, it is very easy


for anyone to open it to ride
floats out or to fish," Mancil
said.
Rees' opinion is supported
by scientific data. Christian
Wagley who holds a master's
degree in biology and coastal
zone studies said, "I have yet
to see any scientific evidence
to support dredging the lake.
I have looked at the water
quality 'data. It is natural
when a hurricane comes it
will move the outfall. Since
2005 we have had drought
conditions, so the clarity of
the lake has increased which
has caused the growth of the


mary Beach.
Trash bags, gloves and
bottled water will be pro-
vided. This event is spon-
sored by the South Walton

from the normal two or three
feet, is due to drought condi-
tions. On the northern side,
the lakes tend to be iced-tea
colored. As you work your
way towards the Gulf, the
water is clearer with more
blues and greens. All of this
depends on the amount of
rainfall you get. The tea-col-
ored water comes closer to
the outfall when it is ready
to bust out," she said. Terrell
addressed the last meeting of
the Coastal Dune Lake Ad-
visory Committee with this
information, which she says
was met with some skepti-
cism from ELNA members in
attendance.
"While it is true the sand
blowing into the lake (from
the landowner) didn't do the
lake any good, it is not the
reason for current conditions
either," she said.
"I don't think'the plant
growth is related to the out-
fall opening. We have some
really good data and some
really good numbers about
the growth. This species,
which is out of control right
now, is a salt tolerant species,
so opening it up will not
harm the grasses. What's
happening right now is not
because; the outfall is
clogged. This is happening on
all the lakes, such as
Stallworth, and Big Red Fish
and homeowners are con-
cerned there as well," she
said.
Wilson and the ELNA
group claimed the salinity in
the lake was down about 80
percent from normal num-
bers. Terrell said salinity is
down 70 percent from De-
cember 2005 numbers, which
is the last time the salinity


"Any attempt to try to manipulate the lake
or hold them in place in a way people find
desirable will ultimately harm the lake.
That includes leaving the outfall alone. Us-
ing the guise of restoration to support dredg-
ing of the outfall will harm the natural state
of the lake and consume thousands of local
taxpayer dollars in the process." Christian
Wagley, local biologist and coastal zone specialist.


grasses because they need
sunlight. It is also possible
there have been some nutri-
ents washed into the lake
that caused them to grow
faster. Change is constant
there and outfalls will al-
ways be rearranged by
storms.
"Any attempt to try to ma-
nipulate the lake or hold
them in place in a way people
find desirable will ultimately
harm the lake. That includes
leaving the outfall alone. The
county already has a permit
allowing them to dredge out
the lake if a home is threat-
ened, and they haven't had
to use it. Using the guise of
restoration to support dredg-
ing of the outfall will harm
the natural state of the lake
and consume thousands of
local taxpayer dollars in the
process," he concluded.
Julie Terrell, the program
manager for the
Choctawhatchee Basin Alli-
ance, is a limnologist, an ex-
pert in fresh water lakes and
rivers and a University of
Florida graduate. She said,
"There are a lot of issues on
the lake. That plant species
is a native plant and is grow-
ing invasively and causing
some problems. Water clarity
is significantly increased.
Seeing six to seven feet down
into the' lake, which is up


levels in all the lakes was
normal.
"The bottom water salin-
ity averages 20 parts per
thousand and right now it is
about six per thousand. The
grass, ruppia maritime grass
commonly known as
widgeon, is a ditch grass. It
likes fresh water all the way
to brackish and can tolerate
saltwater. During December
2005 is the last time the sa-
linity values were normal on
all the lakes. This is not
something isolated to East-


ern Lake," she emphasized.
Wagley agrees with Terrell
about the seagrass.
"Seagrass is well-known for
having boom and bust cycles
in response to changes in the
environment, and conditions
are obviously very good right
now in Eastern Lake. It's
likely that when regular
trains return and more pollut-
ants (and natural tannins)
are washed into the lake,
water quality and clarity will
decline and so will the extent
of the seagrass. Healthy sub-
merged grasses are a sign of
good water quality and are
celebrated by biologists and


"While it is true the sand blowing into the
lake [from the landowner] didn't do the lake
any good, it is not the reason for current con-
ditions either." Julie Terrell, limnologist and pro-
gram manager of the Choctawhatchee Basin Alliance


local residents, many of
whom are working to restore
them in waterways all over
the country. Seagrass helps
to stabilize sediments, filter
pollutants, oxygenate the
water, and provide tremen-
dous habitat for aquatic life.
In fact, widgeon grass itself


is a favorite food of a num-
ber of native species of duck,"
he said.
"If the rainfall continues
as it has the last few days,
the brackishness will come
back and the water will not
be as clear, but there is no
guarantee the widgeon
grasses will die," Terrell said.


THE FORMER ENTRANCE to Eden State Park via Shell Road has been reopened much
to the delight of local residents.



The gates of Eden open

The Department of Envi-

also called Eden Gardens
Road on the eastern edge of
the park. The old entrance
had been closed for nearly
two months in an effort to

to the area. Since the closing
of the Shell Road gates, the
park service has fielded nu-

velopment Council (TDC)
Arts and Culture Committee
extends a "call to artists" for
the 2008 Artist of the Year.
"As Artist of the Year, the
program has opened the
doors to some wonderful op-
portunities for me," said Bill
Stephenson, 2007 Artist of
the Year. "Also, I had the
pleasure to showcase my art
through the Visitor Services
Center for the public to view.
Working with the staff at the
TDC and other artists in the
area has made the experi-
ence a pleasure and enlight-
ening."
Walton County celebrates
an artist each year through
its Artist of the Year pro-
gram. The selected Artist of
theYearrwill receive guaran-
teed commissioned artwork
and be featured throughout
the year in TDC promotions.
The commissioned piece is
used in the TDC's Art in Pub-
lic Places program and will
be on display in a public
space within Walton County.
TDC promotions vary from
artist to artist. This year,
Artist of the Year Bill
Stephenson exhibited at the
Coastal Branch Library, TDC
Visitor Services Center and
NatureWalk visitor Center
with these locations being
featured during media famil-
iarization tours. The 2006
Artist of the Year, Phil Kiser,
traveled with the TDC to


New York to participate in a
Visit Florida media mission.
"I have received great ben-
efits from being chosen as
Artist of the Year," said Phil
Kiser. "Attending a media
mission in New York with the
TDC's public relations de-
partment and being featured
in publications has given me
great exposure."

Artist of the Year Bill
Stephenson receives Award
of Excellence at 2007 ArtsQuest


Local Santa Rosa Beach
artist Bill Stephenson, 2007
Artist of the year, was pre-
sented with the Award of Ex-'
cellence at the 2007 Arts-
Quest Fine Arts Festival.
In 2001 he moved the fa-
cilities of WoodArt Studios
from Loveland, OH, to Santa
Rosa Beach, FL. He produces
one-of-a-kind woodturnings,
all handcrafted. He teaches
the art of woodturning in his
studio and has taught profes-
sionally at the Appalachian
Center for Crafts, John C.
Campbell Folk School, Uni-
versity of West Florida and
other venues. He has pub-
lished a book titled Victorian
Woodturnings and Wood-
works, and more than 25 of
his articles have been pub-
lished in periodicals in the
U.S., Great Britain, and New
Zealand.
His works have appeared
in numerous wood-turning
expositions, Ohio Artistry in
Wood, Ohio University Mu-
seum, and most recently in
The Best of Florida Wood-
turning exposition at the Or-
lando Museum of Art. He has
won many awards in juried
competition. His works are
held in a number of private


collections.
The wood that Stephenson
uses in his creations is sal-
vaged, from power line con-
struction, road construction,
building construction, cabi-
net shops, and tropical
storms.
Each tree is different and
each section of wood is differ-
ent, so an emphasis is always
placed on representing the
wood that nature has pro-
vided, in the best possible
manner yielding one-of-a-
kind pieces. His use of re-
cycled supplies supports
Beaches of South Walton's fo-
cus on preservation and
sustainability.
Other local artists were
also recognized at the 2007
ArtsQuest Fine Arts Festi-
val. Artist Beeb
Benson, of Seagrove Beach
was presented with an
Award of Merit and Santa
Rosa Beach resident, David
Pascoe was recognized with
the CAA Member Tent
Johnny Main Award.

Habitat conservation plan to be


developed for Walton beaches


Following the passage of
Hurricane Dennis in 2005,
Walton County issued more
than 250 permits to coastal
property owners to allow in-
stallation of temporary emer-
gency armoring structures to
protect their homes from
shoreline erosion. This event
resulted in the installation
of several miles of new sea-
walls along the county's Gulf
coast beaches.

In many instances, the
emergency measures under-
taken did not conform to
state law, and the resulting
structures posed a risk to
threatened and endangered
species without the proper
authorizations required un-
der the U.S. Endangered
Species Act. This elicited con-
sternation from state and
federal regulatory agencies,
environmental groups,
beach- goers, and many oth-
ers affected beach-front prop-
erty owners and managers.
It also placed the county at
risk of public lawsuit.
The public dialogue that
ensued culminated in an in-
tergovernmental agreement
between Walton County, the


Florida Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection, the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission,
and the U.S. Fish and Wild-
life Service. A key tenet of
that agreement was the
county's application for fed-
eral funds to develop a habi-
tat conservation plan and
apply for an incidental take
permit. An incidental take
permit would authorize the
unintentional killing ("take"
or "taking") of a protected
species resulting from future
emergency shoreline protec-
tion measures permitted by
the county. A companion
"umbrella" habitat conserva-
tion plan, and the incidental
take permit being developed
concurrently by the U.S. Fish
and Wildlife Service, will pro-
vide authorization for take
resulting from structures in-
stalled under the county's
past emergency authoriza-
tion.
Walton County is now in
the process of.preparing the
habitat conservation plan.
The plan will describe all of
the programs and policies
the county will implement to
minimize and mitigate inci-


dental take of sea turtles,
beach mice, and piping plo-
vers along the Gulf coast re-
lated to future emergency
shoreline protection efforts
and other county-managed/
regulated activities. The
> habitat conservation plan
will include a description of
the area to be regulated, the
activities to be managed, an
implementation schedule,
and funding mechanisms.
Over the next few months,
consultants will be visiting
Walton County beaches to
update information on physi-
cal beach conditions and
natural resources for inclu-
sion in the habitat conserva-
tion plan. The consulting
firm, DeTect Inc., will be per-
forming the shorebird sur-
vey data gathering for the
habitat conservation plan.
The firm will be using two
small Kawasaki ATVs to
traverse the beach while per-
forming the surveys. The
consultants have performed
similar work in conjunction
with beach nourishment
projects for Okaloosa and
Walton counties. They are
aware of turtle-nesting sea-
son, will conduct the surveys


with caution, and will avoid
nests. All employees will
keep identification and a
copy of the authorization let-
ter with them, as well as a
company logo on the ATVs
for easier identification.
They will conduct the sur-
veys only a few days each
month and not on weekends.
Walton County has devel-
oped a guide to help stake-
holders and the public un-
derstand the goals and objec-
tives of the habitat conserva-
tion plan. This guide, avail-
able on the county's Web site
under the environmental Is-
sues link on the main page,
describes what property
owners must do to comply
with state and federal law,
based on their particular
situation. Included is a de-
scription of the different
pathways to receiving federal
authorization for take of
threatened and endangered
species depending on
whether a structure is in-
stalled under a past or future
emergency-permit.

Movie Review

"A Mighty Heart" is highly personal history


By BRUCE COLLIER
Michael Winterbottom's
film "A; Mighty Heart" is
based on a book by Mariane
Pearl. The book is an account
of the kidnapping and mur-
der of Pearl's husband,
Daniel, a Wall Street Journal
reporter abducted in Paki-
stan. Daniel was attempting
to interview a reclusive Mus-
lim leader as part of a series
of articles about "shoe-
bomber" Richard Reid, and
a possible link between Al-
Qaida and the Pakistani in-
telligence service. He went
out to an interview in
Karachi and never returned.
Two things impressed me
about the film. One was the
relative absence of big Hol-
lywood names. Angelina
Jolie, certainly a high-profile
actress, plays Mariane.
Daniel is played by Dan
Futterman, whose resume
includes a lot of television.
Aside from supporting actor
Will Patton as an embassy
security chief, most of the
other principal characters
are played by Indian and Pa-
kistani actors. The second
point was how much of the
film is shot in close-up, draw-
ing performances from faces.
Such a technique demands
great subtlety and precision


from actors, when the slight-
est eye-twitch can convey vol-
umes of meaning. Jolie and
company rise to the chal-
lenge. "A Mighty Heart" has
a jumpy, at-times documen-
tary look about it, with the
scenes more overheard than
actually presented. I recalled
only the major points of the
incident, and had not read
the book, so I had to pay close
attention.
It must be tricky for a di-
rector to choose how to main-
tain interest and tension
when dealing with an inci-
dent as publicized as Daniel
Pearl's kidnapping and mur-
der. The viewer knows how
it's going to turn out, he
knows there's no last-minute
rescue. So, what is the inter-
est? It comes from watching
how Mariane in the last
months of her pregnancy -
struggles to stay sane and
hopeful as hope is peeled
away layer by layer. If you're
familiar with Jolie's work,
you know that she excels at
over-the-top acting (most ac-
tors do). She keeps a tight lid
on herself all through this
film, until she receives undis-
putable proof of her
husband's brutal death. Then
she does what I expect most


people would do. Her explo-
sion of grief is terrible in a
way no horror movie could
ever hope to be.
Supporting performances
are equally strong.
Futterman, seen mainly in
flashbacks, plays Daniel as a
straightforwardly nice guy.
He exhibits no sign of that
self-righteousness that has
made the investigative jour-
nalist as much of a movie
stock character as the crusty-'
but-benign editor. Daniel is
no hero, particularly with his
wife and unborn child so
close. He just can't resist fol-
lowing his story where it
leads him.
Indian actor Irfan Khan -
an honored actor and
heartthrob in his native
country's cinema turns in a
terrific supporting perfor-
mance as "the Captain," a


Pakistani investigator who
turns Karachi inside out in
his pursuit of Pearl and his
abductors. Like Jolie, Khan
stays on simmer, keeping the
outbursts to a minimum. A"
scene where he delivers a
lightning face-slap to an un-
cooperative desk clerk is
doubly effective, less being
more, as ever.
If you know the Daniel
Pearl story, you know how it
ends. Pearl was beheaded,
the murder was videotaped,
and the man who claimed to
have done it boasted of it. To
what end may have been
summed up by Mariane
Pearl in one of the film's fi-
nal scenes. Mariane and her
friends are having a farewell
meal together. "Terrorism is
supposed to terrorize," she
tells her friends. "I am not
terrorized."

CONCERN


boring counties, Walton
County restricts the height of
new construction on the
beach to four stories of hab-
itable space or a 50-feet
height, whichever is less.,
This limit applies to the
part of the county south of
the Choctawhatchee Bay and
Intracoastal Waterway.
In Inlet Beach, a neighbor-
hood plan' adopted as part of
the Walton County Compre-
hensive Plan further limits
the height of new construc-
tion to three stories above
ground, or four stories for
small apartment buildings
and townhomes.
Patrick Jones, president of
the Historic Inlet Beach
Neighborhood Association,
contacted Walton County
Code Enforcement Coordina-
tor Kevin Hargett in May
about the Winston Lane
home under construction,
which was part of the Villas
at Inlet Beach development.
Jones relayed complaints
from members of the neigh-
borhood association about a
possible height violation in
connection with the construc-
tion. He requested an on-site
inspection and a stop work
order if the complaints were
found to be valid.

In contrast with
many neighboring
counties, Walton

County restricts the
height of new con-
struction on the
beach to four stories
of habitable space or
a 50-feet height,
whichever is less.


FROM FRONT


The top floor of the multi-
story building had not been
added at that time.
After a site inspection,
Hargett officially notified
builder Mike Jones on May
10, "you may be in violation
of Walton County Building
Height Restriction.
"Proceeding with con-
struction after the date of
this letter, if in violation of
Walton County Land Devel-
opment Code, will be at your
own 'risk," the notification
stated.
Hargett also told the
builder that a certification
that "your building meets the
50-foot height limitation for
Walton County" would be re-
quired.
Walton County Develop-
ment Order Inspector Jim
Harman was tasked with
monitoring the construction.
At the end of May, the top
story of the building was
added and capped with a
gabled roof. The building ap-
peared to contain five stories,
if the 12-foot-tall parking
area at the base of the build-
ing were included.
However, since the county
does not consider parking
habitable space, the building
was viewed as four stories.
On June 5, Harman re-
ported on his investigation of
Jones' complaint, quoting the
definition of "building
height" from the Walton
County Land Development
Code: "the vertical distance
between (1) the average el-
evation of the existing natu-
ral ground beneath the foot-
print of the building and (2)
either the highest point of
the coping of a flat roof, the
deck line of a mansard roof,
or the mean height level be-
tween the eaves and ridge for
gable, hip and gambrel

NEWS FROM THE


CAPITOL


(AP) -MURDERS AND other violent crimes rose at a
"disconcerting" rate in Florida last year, Gov. Charlie Crist
said Tuesday, but he hopes new laws he helped' pass will help.
Annual statistics on crime in Florida were expected to be
released later Tuesday, but preliminary numbers that leaked
also showed a surprisingly large jump in gun crimes,
including murders, armed robberies and assaults. Overall,
the state's crime rate continued a downward trend that has
been going on for years.
The Florida Department of Law Enforcement accidentally
put some statistics on the agency's Web site Monday, but later
removed them. The Orlando Sentinel reported that they
showed a 42 percent increase in the number of gun murders.
"I understand ... there are some numbers that are
disconcerting, particularly as it relates to murder and other
violent crimes," Crist said Tuesday. "Overall I understand
it's a 36-year low. So there is goodness in it too."
There were 1,129 murders statewide in Florida in 2006,
up 28 percent from 2005, according to the data cited by the
newspaper. Armed robberies were up 20 percent and
aggravated assault with a gun went up 6 percent.
Despite the rise in gun crimes, Crist said it is not too easy
to get a gun in Florida.
Violent crime has gone up in recent years, but the increases
have generally been small.
For example, the number of violent crimes in 2005 went
up 1.7 percent although because of increasing population,
the actual rate of violent crime was slightly down. Violent
crimes are murder, forcible sex offenses, robbery and
aggravated assault.
Crist said a new law this year will help reduce violent
crimes by making it more likely that probation violators who
have committed violent crimes will go back to prison. He has
called the law the "anti-murder act."
"I've always been concerned about crime, violent and
otherwise," Crist said. "That's why I wanted to get this anti-
murder bill passed. I think it's very important that we always
stay vigilant on what is in my view the most important thing
government does, and that is to protect and keep our people
secure, to look out for their safety."

THE FLORIDA DEPARTMENT of Law Enforcement has
concluded that there is no evidence of criminal violations in
about $12.7 million in questionable state payments for
operations of private prisons.
Gov. Charlie Crist put the FDLE on the case about four weeks
after he took office. A report by the Department of
Management Services inspector general's office had cited $6.7
million in overpayments to The GEO Group Inc. and $6
million to Corrections Corp. of America, the two companies
that operate five prisons for the state.
DMS negotiated a settlement of $290,952 with GEO and
is still in negotiation with CCA. The DMS internal
investigation alleged that the now-abolished Correctional
Privatization Commission let the companies bill the state
for salaries of non-existent employees, waived staffing
patterns and overpaid competitive-area differentials for GEO.
The FDLE investigation, released Monday, said DMS
inspector general Stee ;Rumph found no evidence that
anyone working for the old CPC received any "favors" in
exchange for letting the companies cut corners or avoid
prisons costs. FDLE said the Legigl'ature reviewed CPC
contracts and approved its annual budget and that there was
no evidence of fraud.

roofs."
According to measure-
ments taken by a county sur-
vey crew and reported by
Harman, the building did
measure 54.4 feet from fin-
ished floor level to the high-
est ridge of the roof. How-
ever, the county code build-
ing height definition requires
the use of the "mean height
level" between the roof eaves
and ridge in calculating the
height of gable roofs such as
the one on this building.
"This makes the mean
height 48.205 or approxi-
mately 48' 3" (from the fin-
ished floor)," Harman stated.
Harman said that the sur-
veyors also measured the ex-
isting ground level at several
points, and that one foot was
added to the measurement to
account for the approximate
existing elevation, bringing
the mean height
level of the building to 49.205
feet, just under the 50-foot


limit.
"The building plans and
the certified elevation certifi-
cate submitted to the Build-
ing Department agree with
these measurements,"
Harman noted. He added
that the county building of-
ficial had confirmed the
methodology used in the re-
view process to determine
the building height.
Harman said he had not
been asked to review the
building with regard to the
requirements of the Inlet
Beach Neighborhood Plan.

i On June 14, Patrick Jones
said he had been out of town
and had not seen Harman's
letter stating his findings on
the height of the building. He
was still of the opinion that
there was a height violation,
visible to the naked eye, but
he did not envision his orga-
nization pursuing the matter
further at this time.
