'Energy development is a
step closer to coming to the
Mossy Head Industrial Park
after a presentation made at
the June 26 ,meeting of the
Walton County Board of
County Commissioners.
Gulf South Energy, a com-
pany located in West Ala-

of the park for a production
facility for biodiesel and
ethanol fuels. While there is
a state-required bidding pro-

Home invasion case.


leads to drug arrest


Investigation of ani appar-
ent home invasion |robbery
led to discovery ofa s ubstan-
tial amount of marijuana,
and 'one arrest on-, drug
charges. At around 11:00
p.m. on June 27, the( DeFu-
niak Springs Police 11 )FSPD)
responded to 81 Will. Kelly
Avenue to investigate cir-
cumstances surrounding the
reported injuries of a resi-
dent. When officers naet with
the resident, Ka.zeric D:
Freeman, he was first ob-
served to be bleeding and had'
"numerous" markings about
his body.
, Freeman reportedly re-
fused to offer any on forma-
tion, including the cause of
his injuries. Freeman said,
"It took more than one of
them. They all had ;Iguns but
were too scared to usle them."
The officers reconm'nended
Freeman allow nearby emer-
gency medical personnel to
evaluate his injuries. Free-
man refused treatn;iient.
During the investigation
officers collected evidence'
that suggested Free mnan had
been the victim of ai home in-
vasion robbery. Aniong evi-


dence collected was a 9mm
bullet found lying inside the
residence. Schultz reported
there was apparent damage
to the front door, and a shoe
print was recognized on the
front door that was found to
be consistent with forced en-
try into the residence. Other
evidence such as scattered
furniture, blood stains, and
the bullet inside the resi-
dence led to the conclusion
that there had been an inva-
sion and fight: Unknown in-
dividuals apparently took
Freeman's wallet and money
before departing, Schultz re-
ported. No gun was found.
While investigating, the
officers detected the odor of
marijuana originating from
inside the residence. Further
,investigation revealed an
open shoe box sitting in plain
view on the kitchen counter.
The box contained a large
quantity of marijuana. Free-
man later said he knew
about the marijuana. After
obtaining his consent to
search, investigators located
over twenty individual bags
of marijuana in various loca-
tions, including the refrigera-

Freeman. 31, was arrested
and charged with possession
of marijuana over 20 grams
and possession of marijuana
with intent to sell. The total
weight of the marijuana dis-
covered was one pound, 13
ounces. Schultz suggested
that narcotics may have been
a possible motive for the
home invasion.


BCC


passes

public

park

ordinance

By JOSHUA SMITH
The Walton County Com-
mission (BCC) considered a
proposal for a comprehensive
county parks ordinance,
which had its first public
hearing at the regular BBC
meeting on June 26.
The commission noted
, that in the past, the Walton
County Sheritfs Office has
complained that they have
lacked the ability to police
the parks, due to the lack of
an ordinance.
According to the Commis-
sion, the ordinance does not
include beach accesses,
which are under the control
of the South Walton Tourist
Development Council.
A member of the Douglass
Crossroads community rose
to complain al)out what he
felt was loud and inappropri-
ate music being played after
baseball games in their park,
as well as indecent acts oc-
curring, all w within close prox-
inmit y to residential areas and
places, of w or-hip.
The commission noted
that these issues were just.
what the ordinance would
address, and that those who
abuse the public parks could
face a denial of a permit to
use them in the future.
The second public hearing
for adoption of the ordinance
will take place at the July 10
county commission meeting.
The commission also dis-
cussed the lifting of the burni'
ban for local developers who:
are behind on the necessary
burning to be done in their-
new construction areas.
In the past, the state has
refused to issue burn permits
if any kind of burn ban was
in effect in a county, includ-,
ing that of individuals.
The commission took nb'
action, but would revisit the
proposal at their next meet-
ing provided more rain had
fallen since. The burn ban
sunsets on July 20.


Freeport and county driving


toward traffic concurrency plan


By BEN GRAFTON
Freeport City Councilman
Charlie Simmons reported to
the Council that progress is
being made for Walton
County and .Freeport to use
a common methodology for
dealing with traffic
concurrency issues. The new
approach will require devel-
opers to meet concurrency
targets within two years or
lose traffic loading provisions
for their projects. Simmons
said this is a good starting
point for the committee
working to merge the differ-
ent systems now in use. City
Planner Latilda Henninger
said that the city will have
to revise its land develop-
ment code to comply with the
new traffic methodology.
City Council meeting of
June 28, 2007 was relatively
short and began with a re-
view of an application for an-
nexation submitted by
Edwards/Brook for a parcel


located off of U.S. 3;31 South
near the Ramsey! Branch
crossing. The Cotincil ap-
proved a motion to' send the
application on to the city
attorney's office for review.
Councilman Earl ling com-
mented that it seems owners
of parcels closer to the city
refuse to come in but those
further away are begging for
annexation.
City Planner Latilda
Henninger report ted to the
Council that a de velopment
application for an Advance
Auto Parts store to go on the
Southern Title site has been
received. The building on the
site will have to be moved or
demolished. The Council did
not feel that an effort should
be made to pre-serve the
building.
Henninger told the Coun-
cil that the Public Traffic
Safety Committee, of which
she is a member, has received
a "Certificate of Excellence"


award for its work in Walton
County. ,
Attorney Clay Adkinson
reported that work is under-
way on an interlocal agree-
ment that will provide 10
cents per ton of cargo deliv-
ered at the city's port to pay
back funds received from the
economic development fund.
Adkinson said that the le-
gal staff would present a
resolution for the Council's
approval at the next meeting
to provide for cancellation of
development orders which
have been inactive for one
year.
City Engineer Charles Pe-
ters told the Council that the
developers of the Verandas
Townhomes have agreed to
provide an easement for*the
city's sewer force main run-
ning north parallel to U.S.
331. An agreement on this
action is being prepared.
Mayor Mickey Marse re-
ported that the bids received


for the proposed activity cen-
ter had come in at $176,000
to $290,000 for the project.
He said these bids were be-
yond the funds, including a
grant, that were available.
Council agreed and rejected
the bids.
Marse thinks that
through redesign the costs
for the Activity Center can be
reduced to a manageable
level. Simmons and Peters
agree and will bring a plan
back to the Council that will
accomplish this.
Marse said that CHELCO
has expressed an interest in
having space in the new City
Hall for two clerk stations
that will allow residents to
pay electric bills at the same
location where they will pay
other utility bills. Marse said
no written request had been
made but he understood
CHELCO was thinking of
paying what he believed was
less than going market rate.


The Council made its posi-
tion clear that it will approve
this arrangement only if a
review shows the space can
be made available and then
only if the rental is equal to
the going commercial rate.
Marse will get back to
CHELCO after checking into
details.
Marse said that through
discussions with a metal
building contractor it looks
like the price to provide a
water department building
can be reduced to something
in the range of $150,000 com-
pared to the original bids of
$230,000. Relocation of the
building site to the sewer
plant property would help
and this move would place all
of the equipment at one lo-
cation. However, using this
site would add to water de-
partment travel time to and
from water producing and
handling facilities. This mat-
ter will receive further re-
view.

Area fires mean a



cautious Fourth


THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, JULY 5, 2007


A forest blaze called out

There was no danger to
homes surrounding the af-
fected area, but heavy smoke
severely reduced visibility on
SR-20. To prevent accidents,
SR-20 was closed from
Alaqua Drive on the eastern
side of the fire area to I.D.
Martin Road on the western
side. According to Ben
Greenslait, FVFD's on-scene
commander, the calm winds
and humidity conditions
caused the smoke to hang
heavily along the road. For
public safety, the road re-
mained closed until Friday
morning.
On the afternoon of Fri-
day, June 29, the Walton
County Sheriff's Office shut
down parts of SR-20 near Ba-
sin Bayou west of
Freeport. The fire that was
previously under control ap-
parently reignited. Some 150
acres were on fire, and the
blaze was spreading. SR-20
was again shut down, from
the Basin Bayou Camp-


ground to Nick's Seafood Res-
taurant.
Earlier in the week,
firefighters responded to a
200 300-acre wildfire north-
east of Black Creek. Walton
911 received the call about
noon on Wednesday, June 27.
Units from the Florida Divi-
sion of Forestry, Walton Fire
Rescue, and FVFD re-
sponded.
The fire occurred north-
east of the area burned by
the May 7 Black Creek fire.
That area is north of CR-
3280 and southeast of
Burnham Road, a small road
off SR-20 east .of Freeport,
and is largely vacant forest
land.
That fire was contained by
3:20 p.m., and the Walton
County units were released.
Division of Forestry crews re-
mained on the scene to over-
haul the area and guard
against a restart. There were
no injuries and no damage to
structures in that fire.
The Walton County burn
ban enacted by the Board of
County Commissioners on
,May 22 remains in effect.
Walton residents and visitors
are urged to continue to be
extremely careful with fire.
During the coming Fourth of
July holiday, extra care
should be taken withfire-
works, barbecues, and other
activities that could cause a
fire. Despite some rain in re-
cent days, many areas of the
county are reported to be still

Rep. Brown recognized as distinguished advocate


Representative Don Brown
was recognized as one of 13
legislators selected to receive
the Florida Chamber's Dis-
tinguished Advocate Award.
This award recognizes legis-
lators who, through their
leadership, ensured consid-
eration of the business
community's legislative pri-
orities.
"Representative Brown


has consistently championed
the priorities of Florida em-
ployers and employees," said
Frank Ryll Jr., president,
Florida Chamber of Com-
merce. "In 2007, he fought
aggressively to protect
Florida's business climate."
More than just voting "yes"
or "no" on critical legislation,
those honored as Distin-
guished Advocates played a


key leadership role in pro-
moting pro-business legisla-
tion, fighting for jobs for Flo-
ridians and strengthening
Florida's economy and busi-
ness climate. Representative
Brown fought for the passage
of constitutional amendment
reform legislation that pro-
tects private property rights
and consistently supported
business priorities.


In addition to Representa-
tive Don Brown, the follow-
ing legislators were honored
as 2007 Distinguished Advo-
cates: Senator Mike Bennett,
Representative Dean Can-
non, Representative Don
Davis, Representative Mike
Davis, Representative
Charlie Dean, Senator Mike
Fasano, Senator Don Gaetz,
Representative Andy


Gardiner, Representative
Will Kendrick, Representa-
tive Joe Pickens, Senator Bill
Posey and Representative
Jack Seiler.
The 2007 Distinguished
Advocates are featured in the
Florida Chamber's How They
Voted publication which in-
cludes the 2007 Legislative
Report Card and a detailed
overview of legislation from
this session. Based on the


legislative voting records on
issues outlined in the
Florida's Business Agenda,
62 percent of the Florida Leg-
islature received an A (score
of 90-100) on the Legislative
Report Card.

vocates and a complete list-

Florida Chamber honors lawmakers


By TUQUYEN MACH,
WMBB TV-13
Business leaders are hon-
oring a group of Panhandle
lawmakers for their support
of business priorities.
Six Panhandle lawmakers
got A's from the Florida
Chamber of Commerce for
their votes on issues such as
property tax reform and
workforce housing.
On Wednesday, the
Florida Chamber of
Commerce honored Rep. Don
Brown, Rep. Marti Coley,
Sen. Don Gaetz, Rep. Will
Kendrick, Sen. Al Lawson


Jr., and Rep. Jimmy Patronis
Jr. at a luncheon at the St.
Andrews Bay Yacht Club in
Panama City.
Chamber leaders say the
legislators scored well on the
'2007 Session Legislative Re-
port Card' grades. The scores
.measure pro-business sup-
port on issues such as hurri-
cane insurance, workforce
housing, property tax reform,
and economic development.
Sen. Don Gaetz (R Dis-
trict 4) received thanks for
his work on both educational
and tax reform
initiatives. Rep. Will


Kendrick (R District 10)
was honored for his work to
defeat the so-called "Guns at
Work" proposal, which busi-
ness owners say would've
forced them not only to allow
guns but other legal' objects
such as pornography on their
private ,property. Rep.
Jimmy Patronis Jr. (R Dis-
trict 6) and Rep. Marti Coley
(R District 7) were also hon-
ored.
Coley, a former teacher,
says lawmakers will work
hard to ensure cuts in prop-
erty taxes won't effect the
quality of education. "The


Legislature I think has Y
shown a consistency in mak-
ing sure that they fund fully F R
educational needs. We've in-
creased the funding for the W -D* ** p \ t
last several years drastically,
and I don't see any cut in T
education at all," says Coley.
Sen. Lawson and Rep. 3
Brown were also honored for
their work this year but
couldn't attend Wednesday's 8
gathering because of prior
commitments.

FIFTH YEAR WALTON
COUNTYSCHOOL BOARD
MEMBER Bill Laird needed
no introduction when he
spoke to the DeFuniak
Springs Rotary Club on June
13, as he was well known to
all in attendance.
Laird briefed Rotarians on
the status of all aspects of the
Walton County School Dis-
trict and welcomed questions
throughout his time at the
podium. Among the many
topics he discussed were
school enrollment, construc-
tion projects, class sizes,
teachers' salaries and ben
'efits, transportation,,. and ,
food services.


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

Question: I recently bought a business or rental home/condo and later received a
tax bill for past due tangible property taxes for previous years.
Am I responsible for these taxes or the previous owner?

The facts: (Florida Statute 192.042) The new owner is responsible.
Title companies are not required to perform a search of the tangible assets of a
business. You should therefore consult your realtor, attorney or closing agent to
avoid problems in this area. You may also contact the Tax Collector's Office to
determine if unpaid personal property taxes are associated with the property.

Tangible Personal property is everything other than real estate that has value by
itself. It would include things such as furniture, fixtures, tools, machinery,
household appliances, signs, equipment, leasehold improvements, supplies,
leased equipment and any other equipment used in a business or to earn
income. This includes rental homes and condos since rental activity is of an
income-producing nature.

Anyone in possession of assets on January 1 who has either a proprietorship,
partnership, corporation or is a self-employed agent or contractor, must file each
year. Property owners who lease, loan or rent property must also file.

At the beginning of the year a return is mailed to Tangible Personal Property
owners by the Property Appraiser's Office. Tax bills are mailed by the Tax Collector
beginning November 1st of each year, and become delinquent on April 1 of the
following year.

Tangible personal property that remains unpaid will have a tax warrant prepared
and ratified through the Circuit Court.

at 850.892.8121 or visit our website,

Letters to the Editor


Editor:
Recently, there have been several letters about the state
of road conditions in Juniper Lake Estates, a 30-year-old sub-
division with fine future prospects. Exactly how and why road
conditions got to their current state now is history. Perhaps
the county was remiss in not holding the developer to task
for the past three decades. In any case, it is time to. forgive
and forget.
What seems important is for the county to accept its ulti-
mate responsibility to remedy the situation. Properly main-
tained, this subdivision has obvious potential in providing
upscale home sites for new residents. It is a convenient loca-
tion, nicely laid out, and holds some very desirable land. Al-
ready people are moving in on a regular basis. There are at
last 400-500 ta.x-iavin" nronnertv owners and at least 70 full

Good roads speak well of any community. The'county has
plenty of revenue, staff, and equipment to be used in ad-
dressing real needs with reasonable vision. Improving con-
ditions in Juniper Lake Estates is a step in the right direc-
tion and would be of substantial benefit to the greater De-

leadership to affect change in this country. There has to be a
*way to get the politicians out and the statesmen in. Those
politicians who vote only for the sake of the party, the lobby-
ist or big business, have to be removed. To bring about sub-
S- stantial changes in the government these new statesmen
must control the House, Senate and the White House.

AIRHeart birds settle in at new nest


Afterwards, the mother and
child were moved to Sacred
Heart by its neo-natal trans-


PAGE 7-A
port team. Over time, both
were released and able to go
home.


By LAKEN DAVIS
AIRHeart flight-crews,
and the pilots and employees
of Air Methods, help save
lives. AIRHeart crews are
flown in by helicopter to
emergency sites that can in-
clude accident scenes, per-
sonal emergency locations, or
hospitals. Tu'-.:- teams
transport patients in need of
medical care to facilities that
can best treat their needs.
The helicopters come
equipped with advanced
trauma life-support tools and
could be called flying emer-
gency rooms.
The two groups, AIRHeart
and Air Methods work to-
gether to provide air ambu-
lance services. Air Methods
provides the helicopters, pi-
lots, mechanics, mainte-
nance and billing services.
AIRHeart flight-crews are
made up of flight nurses and
paramedics, who are pro-
vided by Sacred Heart.
Until recently, the team
had been located in south
Walton. In June, the Walton
County team and facility re-
located from the South Wal-
ton Fire District annex to the
DeFuniak Springs airport,
located off of U.S. 90. The
crews are now settled in at
the new location.
The reason for the move
was to bring the crew closer
to the areas that need its ser-
vices most often, said Ron
Mosley, Air Methods Pan-
handle program director.
These areas are central and
northern Walton County.
Mosley said for the 2006
year, 81 percent of all the
AIRHeart flight requests
were to areas in north Wal-
ton County and only 19 per-
cent were to areas in south
Walton County. Mosley
added that fog comes in ear-
lier closer to the water and
can cause flight delays. Fur-
ther inland, fog comes in
later and may allow the
teams to deploy from the
northern location sooner.
Mosley explained that with
medical emergencies, time is
of the essence.
The new AIRHeart facility
has three bedrooms, two
bathrooms, office space, a
common area and a kitchen.
A team consisting of a flight
nurse, a paramedic, and a pi-
lot are on call in the facility
at all times. Each member
is normally scheduled for ei-


CLARK


their a 12- or 24- hour shift.
So far, Mosley said the new
location has provided faster
response times.
The teams respond to calls
based on a recommendation
from a site's medical director.
For locations where no land-
ing area exists, landing zones
are created by the local fire
department. For pilots, a
street address is not very
helpful, so they must have
GPS coordinates to find loca-


tions. In many instances, the
local fire department pro-
vides these coordinates as
well.
"The fire departments do
an excellent job with getting
us where we need to be,"
Mosley said.
AIRheart crews normally
fly in BO-105 helicopters at
around 115 to 140 miles per
hour. All flights are moni-
tored by the FAA.
Mosley recalled an in-


TAKING A LOOK into the cab of an AIRHeart helicopter,
it can be seen that like an ambulance, the interior holds
equipment similar to that of an emergency room. Two seats
face a stretcher where the patient is placed, one for a flight
nurse, and the other for a paramedic. This allows the medi-
cal team to provide emergency care to the patient. (Photo by
LAKEN DAVIS)

additional tasks and willing
to assist wherever needed.
Her poise, professionalism
and demonstration of leader-
ship make her a role model
for the staff."

PLANS FR

told them I didn't, but I was
willing to learn and have.
This (airport) is a diamond in
the rough."
In the coming year, the
airport will undertake a re-
habilitation of the paved run-
way, as well as installing a
GPS approach system for
easier landing, and will cre-
ate a master site-develop-
ment plan.
All this is in preparation
for the largest of all the fu-
ture projects: the extension
of the main runway to 5,000
feet.
URS, the engineering firm
working with the city on fu-
ture airport development, is
due to update the council. on
their progress at the July 9
meeting.
Kirby praises Jonathan
Dunn, the fixed based opera-
tor at the airport, for his
work in improving the air-
port.
"Since he's come, we've
seen a tremendous boost in
activities," she said.
Recently, the terminal
building was renovated
thanks to funding provided
by the Florida Department of
Transportation, who paid for
80 percent of the project.
The rehabilitation of the
runway is also scheduled to
get underway soon, with a
contract for the construction
approved at a recent council
meeting.
The DeFuniak Springs
City Council noted the abil-
ity of the airport to bring in

jobs as the reason for placing
it so high on the list of city
priorities. With companies
like Monarch Aviation, who
recently moved into a newly-
constructed hangar on the
south end of the property,
and Destin Air Charters, who
are now offering service from
the airport, the job potential
is there.
Three areas of the airport
property, have been high-
lighted as areas for develop-
ment.
The first, on the south end
of the property contains the
infrastructure and access for
aviation businesses to move
in right now. Current han-
gars are already located in
this area, with direct access
to the southern dirt runway.
Plenty of land is available
for future businesses to con-
struct their hangars all the
way to the end of the prop-
erty line. Kirby said for fu-
ture businesses to take ad-
vantage of the airport, an
appraisal of the property's
value would first need to be


assisted in the manhunt.
Owens has outstanding
felony warrants from Holmes
County for burglary, grand
theft, and felony criminal
mischief. Owens is being
charged with domestic bat-
tery, kidnapping with inflic-
tion great bodily harm, false
imprisonment, and fleeing


undertaken. "We're not sure
how exactly to go about that
at this time," Kirby said, "but
we're evaluating where our
next step will be."
A more extensive track of
land is available on the north
end of the property bordering
U.S. 90, but that land has a
severe downhill slope from
the main runway. Kirby said
that the land would have to
be evaluated for the best way
to construct on the land and
negotiate the incline.
Raising. the vast area of
land to the level of the run-
way would be pricey, so alter-
native access solutions would
be evaluated. The plan for
that land is to construct not
only a new terminal building,
but also hangars for corpo-
rate jets, T-hangars for per-
sonal-use aircraft, and also
space for tie-downs for the
aircraft.
There is currently a wait-
ing list for access to the city's
T-hangars, with 46 people on
the list. Further land on the
south end of the property is
designated for development,
however, lack of access and
infrastructure to the area
currently hinders any future
development.

and eluding in Walton
County. He also has commit-
ment orders on file in Wal-
ton County for child
support. Other charges stem-
ming from the manhunt are
pending as well. Owens is
being held :at the Walton
County Jail.


"Development of that area
is much further down the
road," said Kirby.
Kirby cited the increasing
congestion of the airspace in
Destin, the future develop-
ment of the international air-
port near Walton County in
northern Bay County, and
tourism to the area, as rea-
sons for the recent increase
in activity at the airport.
The city is both recruiting
and hearing from businesses
who approach them in locat-
ing to the airport. "Whatever
it takes to get people to come
here, we'll do," she said.

APPLYING THE FINISHING TOUCHES, workers restore
the cupola of the historic Chautauqua Hall of Brotherhood.
The repair and restoration of the most famous building in
the Panhandle has been an ongoing project undertaken by
the DeFuniak Springs City Council.


By LAKEN DAVIS
At a special meeting of the
Bonifay City Council on July
2, members passed a motion
to terminate officer George,
Steven Lee from his position
on the Bonifay Police Depart-
ment.
Lee has been on suspen-
sion from the department be-
cause of accusations of use of
excessive force in the field.
The council met to make the
decision to reinstate Lee as
a police officer or to let him
go, based on statements of
community members. How-
ever, of the three witnesses
called to speak by Bonifay
Mayor Frederic Howell, only
one, Matthew Malina, was
present at the meeting.
Malina stated that while Lee
was investigating a com-
plaint, Lee threatened to
throw Malina out of a win-
dow, and lifted him from his
belt and collar. Lee was re-
sponding to a complaint that
someone was shooting a BB
gun at traffic from a Bonifay
apartment window.
However, Lee's attorney,
Rhonda Clyatt, said Lee had
no notice of the citizens' ac-
cusations and a response
would be difficult to make.
She said it will be Lee's deci-
sion whether to take the de-
cision to state or federal
court.
She added that she thinks
Lee's termination was in re-
sponse to his allegations to
the Florida Department of
Law Enforcement (FDLE)
that Bonifay Assistant Police
Chief Joseph Sallas had been
falsifying training docu-
ments for Bonifay Police
Chief Ronnie Bennett and for
Lee as well.
An FDLE investigation
into the allegations was car-
ried out in January. In an
FDLE investigative report,
Lee stated that he was on a
10-day suspension from the
department for violating de-
partmental policy, but that
the complaint regarding the
training records was not an
attempt on his part to retali-
ate. He also stated that he
spoke with Bennett about the
issue on one occasion. How-
ever, nothing was done or
said to rectify the issue.
During the investigation,
training certificates were re-
viewed that indicated that
Bennett and Lee attended
training courses in April
2006. However, in an inter-
view with FDLE investiga-
tors, Bennett stated that he
could not recall attending the
training.
The investigative report
concluded that Sallas falsi-
fied records for both Bennett'
and Lee. In the report, Sallas
stated that his intentions
were to assist the Bonifay
Police Department, which
could not afford to lose any
officers due to lack of man-
datory training.
Both Sallas and Bennett
were suspended by Mayor
Howell in June. However, the
suspension did not last.
"City council voted to put
them back to work," Howell
said.
The city council also re-
quested that Bennett come
up with a punishment for
Sallas. At a council meeting
on June 25, Bennett recom-
mended that Sallas be
stripped of his teaching cer-
tification and have a two-
week suspension. The coun-
cil voted to increase the sus-
pension to three weeks.


Currently, Bennett in po-
sition as police chief, and
Sallas is on suspension for
his violation.
Mayor Howell, who voted
for Lee's termination, said he


did what was best for the
people of Bonifay. When
asked directly if the decision
was linked to Lee's complaint
to the FDLE, Howell smiled
and offered no comment.

The end of an era

By REID TUCKER
It's been almost four de-
cades since B.B. Campbell
and John Grice first walked
into a Walton High class-
room. They are the longest-
serving members of any
school faculty in Walton
County, or rather, they were.
The 2006-2007 school year
was their last. The two have
since embarked on a well-
earned retirement. However,
this change in faculty marks
the end of something more
than a generation for Walton
High School, it's the end of
an era.
The two educators had
many similarities in terms of
their upbringing and the
friendship they enjoyed as
colleagues at their shared in-
stitution. Campbell taught
agriculture and Grice was an
art/history teacher.
In his own high school
education, Campbell said he
was heavily influenced by his
agriculture teacher, a posi-
tion which has, in recent
years, all but disappeared.
After graduation from high
school, Campbell enrolled in
college. Campbell said of his
college time, "I had won all
sorts of awards with New
Farmers of America [which
combined with the Future
Farmers ofAmerica in 1965]
and I was very impressed by
my agricultural teacher, so I
changed (my major) from ac-
counting to agriculture be-
fore I even got started." Upon
graduation from college in
1969, he almost immediately
entered the classroom again,
this time as a teacher.
Benson B. Campbell got
into teaching agricultural
studies at a critical turning
point in American farming.
He explained that the big
change in agriculture, "was
from production, such as
crops, livestock, et cetera, to
commercial agriculture."
This trend has continued to
the present day. "It's hard to
convey the necessity, of it to
the average person,"
Campbell said. However, he
said that "the need for agri-


culture is still great."
"South Florida used to be
strictly citrus, now it's hous-
ing. There's more people and
less food now. We've got to
have production agriculture
to survive." Campbell that
the main reason for declining
interest in agricultural stud-
ies is the increased cost of
entering into operation (in-
surance, herbicide, pesticide,
fungicide, seed, equipment,
land rent), leaving farming
in the hands of either estab-
lished, family-run farms, or
large corporate ones, with
single fields numbering in
the thousands of acres. "It
costs so much to get into that
the average person can't af-
ford the losses," Campbell
said. Despite that fact, he
feels that someone "someone
has to do it."
John Grice, on the other
hand, said he was inspired to
take up art as his profession
at an early age by two people,
a favorite aunt in Tallahas-
see with whom he spent his
boyhood summers, and an el-
ementary school teacher.
"I would catch the train in
Ponce De Leon," Grice said,
remembering the long trip
from his home in Red Bay to
the state capital. In Tallahas-
see, Grice was exposed to his-
torical art exhibits at the
various state-sponsored art
museums. "At that point,
they didn't have many fa-
mous works there," Grice
said. Regardless, it was this
exposure to culture and art
that partly influenced his de-
cision to pursue art teaching
as a career. His elementary
school teacher, Louise


Merritt, encouraged him to
draw, in his free time after
completing assignments
when he was a young boy.
"She was the first person to
ever give me paper without
lines on it," Grice said. "She
really nurtured that in me."
Throughout his school
days Grice's skills in art were
used and supported by his
teachers. In high school biol-
ogy, "due to the lack of me-
dia," he said, Grice's teacher,
Ruth Anderson, had him to
make biological illustrations
for class lectures. Grice said
that in college at Louisiana
State University, he initially
planned to study engineer-
ing, as many others did. "I
didn't know if that's what I
wanted to do, anyway," Grice
said. After taking his first art

class in college, Grice said "I
knew that I wanted to do
something with it (art), but I
didn't know how." Encour-
aged by friends and advisors,
Grice majored in'art with a
minor in education. "It was
the best thing that ever hap-
pened to me," he said of the
decision.
He returned home to the
DeFuniak Springs area after
graduation, and entered into
the services of Walton High
School (WHS) in 1967. At
that time, the WHS campus
was what is now Walton
Middle School. In 1967, it
was still the high school,
making Grice the only
teacher to have taught at
both locations of Walton
High. If he had stayedin the
business one more year, he
would have been the only
teacher to have taught at all

three, with construction on,
the new high school under
way.
With 80 years of combined
teaching experience, both
men have developed their
own unique teaching meth-
ods and happened upon their
fair share of insight into their
profession. "You can judge
anything by the product,
teaching is the same way,"
Campbell said; "My goal was
always to impart knowledge,


[teach students] to be well-
rounded, and cope in society."
Campbell said that the chal-
lenge to bring students to the
level they should be "is a con-
tinuous battle," but is well
worth the effort. He said that
his greatest accomplishment
was that he has "been able
to help people over the
years." Several people,
Campbell said, have come
back at later times and
thanked him for his role in


their lives.
Grice said that his goal
was always to instill a love
for the arts in his
students,which he feels he
succeeded in doing. Also, he
strived to connect with his
students on a personal level.
"I felt that if I had a con-
nection with them [the stu-
dents], it would carry over
into the other parts of their

lives," Grice said. He did this
mainly through what he
termed "teaching students,
as opposed to teaching the
lesson." Grice said that he al-
ways tried to remain knowl-
edgeable and up-to-date on
current events, as he said, "to
connect with students on a
subject they're interested in."
Grice remarked that, "If
you can connect with a per-
son individually, that's the
joy of teaching." Campbell
feels much the same way. He
said that even those students
that would be considered
"bad" still have the potential
to move in a positive direc-
tion in their lives. "It's the job
of teachers to cultivate that
part of them," Campbell said.
According to him, "teachers
were encouraged to be in-
volved, to listen to students,
now, though, they [the ad-
ministration] want you to
stay out of it." For him, this
makes the job of a teacher
much more difficult because,
"you're still supposed to
know what's going on."
While their feelings about
teaching may not have
changed much in the 40
years that they taught, the
nature of the teaching sys-
tem certainly has.
Campbell said, "It's your
job as a student to have fun
and try to get away with
stuff. My job as a teacher is
to keep you from getting into
stuff. Really though, the kids
are about the same as they
always have been." What has
changed are the times, of
course, and all that they
bring with them.
"Media plays a greater
role in the lives of students,
said Grice, who taught all the
way from the time of the
black-and-white film strip to
wireless internet and Wi-Fi
capable cellular phones. "It
takes their time in ways it
never has before," he said.
The lives of students
change as the times change,
and both educators can attest
to the constant flux of events
in the world. ,
The period of integration
was the first hurdle Grice
and Campbell had to face as
young teachers. "Those were
some rough years," Campbell
remembered. Grice con-
curred. He said that, "that
was an aggravating time to
teach because you had to con-
tend with all that [the racial
tensions], and still were ex-
pected to teach a lesson."
Both recalled other chal-
lenging times the assassi-
nations of Robert Kennedy
and Martin Luther King Jr.,
the Challenger explosion, the
Watergate scandal, the
Jonestown mass suicide, the
Vietnam War, and the col-
lapse of the Soviet Union,
epitomized by the events sur-
rounding the Berlin Wall.
Grice said, "It was a time
of protest [in the late '60s and
'70s], those events really af-
fected the students' percep-
tion of the world." The two
teachers saw this trend re-
turn with the events follow-
ing the terrorist attacks on
the World Trade Center in
the 1990s and then again, on
a larger scale, in 2001.
Through the course of the
interviews, .Campbell and
Grice discussed some of the
issues on which they felt they
had an impact, or an accom-
plishment of which they were
most proud.
One issue of concern to
Campbell is the presence of
minority groups in the fac-
ulty. When he became a
teacher in 1969, and
throughout those early years
of his career in education,
Campbell said, "there were
more black teachers than
there are now," and yet there
have been few, other than
himself, who have stayed in
the school district's employ
for many successive years.
While there is a strong mi-


nority presence at Walton
High, both in terms of its
vast ethnic representation
among the student popula-
tion and the staff and admin-
istration, Campbell re-
mained as the only black
member of the faculty.
For Campbell, it really
isn't an issue of inclusion of
minority groups for the sake
of their inclusion or for rea-
sons of diversity in the work-
place, though, according to
Campbell, neither of these


things are to be slighted. "We
need black teachers, more
minority teachers for the
kids to relate to," Campbell
said. He feels that this is one
of the main reasons that so
many African-American stu-
dents do not pursue careers
in education, as once they
did. He added that "this is
something that needs to be
addressed by the superinten-
dent. One of my goals upon
retirement was to have this
addressed."
For Grice, it was his con-
tribution to the curriculum
that he considers to be his
proudest accomplishment; as
he said, "bringing cultural
studies to the students of
Walton High." When Grice
signed on as a teacher in the
late 1960s, "the only position
in art was at Walton. I en-
couraged the schools to all
have art programs." In the
course of the art program,
Grice and his students con-
structed and painted the first
of Walton High's totem poles
and painted the gym floor.
Grice also designed several of


the different Indian mascots
for the school as they ap-
peared on shirts and walls
alike.
He also was responsible
for the initiation of high
school humanities as they
are known in the county to-
day. Over the course of his
career, Grice said that he
taught art and several differ-
ent history classes. In the
1970s, he was given the op-
portunity to combine the two
together and teach what he
called "history from an artis-
tic perspective."
The resulting humanities
programs further resulted in
one of the first "properly-
funded art programs," he
said. The programs had bud-
gets of enough size that ma-
terials were available at
most times and field trips
were possible. "Humanities
field trips were a good thing
for them (the students),"
Grice said, remembering ar-
cheological-themed trips to
Tallahassee's state muse-
ums, the same he visited as
a young boy, and to the Art
Institute of Atlanta. Grice's
humanities class also made
a trip to New Orleans in 1978
to see the regalia of King

As Grice said, "I always
tried to be a good ambassa-
dor for Walton High. I really
appreciate being from the
Walton County area and all
the support I've gotten from
everyone in my life."
Grice spoke of an idea pro-
posed by several members of
the faculty and staff to honor
past teachers. "We're hoping
to put a plaque in the new
school with names of all the
teachers who've taught at
the school over the years," he
said. Both men were proud
to have taught there and
made an impact on the lives
of their students.
For Campbell, Walton
High School, "will always
hold a special place in my
heart. I wouldn't trade the


experience for anything."

As for their life in retire-
ment, Campbell stayed on at
Walton for a few weeks after
the end of the school year,
slowly moving all the things
that it took 39 years to accu-
mulate. He plans to help his
daughter move into a new
house. Beyond that,
Campbell said, "I'll play it by
ear."
Grice, on the other hand,
only recently returned from
vacationing in Alaska, where
he enjoyed the scenery and
some whitewater kayaking.
"It was great," he said,
mainly because, "it was 36
degrees at all times." He said
that he would be kayaking
the rivers and creeks in the
area, though white water


PAGE 11-A
was probably a one-time
thing for him, "I'm too old to
tackle the big ones anymore."
Grice plans to exhibit some
of his artwork in shows
around the tri-county area,
and do "a bit of en plein air
(open air, rather than studio)
painting. Both men said they
were going to "unwind," and
"take it easy," with Grice add-
ing, "playing with the
grandkids."
After forty years of teach-
ing young students, includ-
ing this writer and his edi-
tor, a little unwinding is
probably in order, and cer-
tainly a well-deserved re-
ward for their services, for
their years of teaching, for
igniting the spark of imagi-
nation in so many young
minds.

Walton schools receive state report card


By PATRICK CASEY
The Florida Department
of Education released grades
for schools throughout the
state of Florida last week
based on standardized math,
reading and writing test
scores, annual learning gains
and other factors.
Walton County saw the
grades mirror last year's in
many ways, though Walton
and Freeport High Schools
slipped to "D" grades after
Freeport recorded a "B" and
Walton a "C" in 2005-06. The
district posted eight "A"
schools, three "B" schools,
and two "D" schools. The to-
tal tied last year's mark of
eight A-rated schools, which
was the high mark previ-
ously.
Walton County did ex-
tremely well in 2005-06:. The
district posted eight "A"
schools, three "B" schools,
and one "C" school.
Only one school improved
its letter grade from last year


as Butler Elementary School
improved from a "B" to an "A"
school. Bay Elementary
School received their first
school grade and brought
home excellent marks with
an "A" after not being graded
last year.
Four schools saw their
grades slide as compared to
one the previous year. Free-
port Elementary and South
Walton High School each slid
from an "A" school in 2005-
06 to a "B" in 2006-07. They
joined Walton and Freeport
high schools after only one
school in 2005-06, Van R.
Butler Elementary School,
slid down a letter grade, from
an "A" to a "B" from 2004-05
to 2005-06.
Walton and Freeport high
schools had enough points to
receive a "C" score, but fell
slightly short of improving
the lowest 25 percent of their
students, resulting in the "D"
grade.
Okaloosa County finished


with the second highest
scores in the state with its 38
schools recording 34 "A"
scores and four "B" school
grades. Gilchrist County, a
school district with only four
schools, finished first in the
state.
To receive an "A" grade, a
school had to earn 525 points
or more while meeting ad-
equate progress of lowest
students in reading and
math test at least 95 percent
of eligible students. To re-
ceive a "B" grade, a school
had to earn 495 points or
more while meeting ad-
equate progress of lowest
students in reading and
math within two years and
test at least 90 percent of eli-
gible students. To receive a
"C" grade, a school had to
earn 435 points or more
while meeting adequate
progress of lowest students
in reading and math within
two years and test at least 90
percent of eligible students.


To receive a "D" grade, a
school had to earn 395 points
or more and test at least 90
percent of eligible students.
The Florida Department
of Education uses'scores from
the FCAT to calculate school
grades. Points are earned
based on how students do in
reading, writing and math,
as well as whether or not the
students improve from year
to year. This year, the points
formula was tweaked to in-
clude science FCAT scores,
along with math-gains
among the lowest performing
students and passing scores
for 11th- and 12th-graders
retaking the 10th-grade
reading and mathematics
portions of the FCAT.
The number of failing
Florida public schools qua-
drupled in 2007, largely be-
cause of tougher scoring cri-
teria on the student test that
grades are based on.
The state gives $100 per
student in bonus money to


schools that earn an "A"
grade. Schools that do poorly

Brannon to speak to Heritage Association


The Walton County Heri-
tage Association welcomes
Walton County Commis-
sioner Scott Brannon as
guest speaker for their quar-
terly meeting on Thursday,
July 19, at 7 p.m.
Brannon will talk about his
new idea for preserving the
history of Walton County us-
ing photographs, maps, and


information collected from
citizens. The Heritage Mu-
seum is supporting this
project and looks forward to
working with the county and
helping to preserve its his-
tory.
On Saturday, August 4,
from 9 a.m. to noon, the mu-
seum will hold a rummage
sale to benefit the museum


at the home of board mem-
ber Marie Hinson. Nothing
donated to the museum's col-
lection will be for sale, so
they are depending upon do-
nations from community
members. Anyone with items
to donate for the rummage
sale, should bring them by
the museum any Wednesday
through Saturday from 1-4
p.m. The museum is a 501(c)
(3) non-profit organization
will furnish a receipt for the
donation.
They association is work-
ing on a book depicting the
history of Walton County in
photographs from the earli-
est photograph in the
museum's collection, dated
1885, through the end of
World War II. They very
much need photographs
showing the people, places,


and events of Walton County
in that era. All contributors
will be given credits for their
photographs. They will make
digital scans of the photo-
graphs so people do not have
to let them out of their pos-
session. People can bring the
photographs to the museum
for scanning. museum repre-
sentatives can.even come to
a home or office with a laptop
and scanner.
The museum is open
Wednesday through Friday
from 11 p.m. until 4 p.m. and
on Saturday from 1 p.m. un-
til 4 p.m., and can accommo-
date tour groups at other
times. The Heritage Museum
is located in the former L&N
railroad depot on Circle
Drive in downtown DeFu-
niak Springs.


On July 2, North Okaloosa
Medical Center Rehabilita-
tion Services (NOMC) will
begin seeing patients at their
new office located in the Phy-
sicians Medical Plaza at 550
West Redstone Avenue, Suite

ously, the office was located

"The move to our new of-
fice space in the Physicians

our patients."

swallowing muscles.
Toni Allen, occupational
therapist, will work one-on-
one with individuals to help
them become self-sufficient
as possible in the activities
of daily life by providing

WCSO Career Service

Employees' Act takes

effect


By BRUCE COLLIER
On June 28, the Walton
County Sheriff's Office
(WCSO) Career Service
Employees' Act took effect.
The local bill, HB 1613,
briefly provides "transition
provisions" and definitions
for "permanent employees" of
the WCSO, and ensures
continued employment for
specified employees, 'even
following the election or
appointment of a new sheriff.
Employees covered include
sworn officers at the rank of
sergeant and below, and
other civilian employees. The
law does not apply to sworn
officers at the rank of
lieutenant and above, or to
financial officers and the
secretary of the sheriff.
Employees earn permanent
status after serving for one
year and must be continued


by an incoming sheriff unless
"just cause" exists for their
dismissal. The law does not
grant collective bargaining
rights to any employees who
do not already have them, nor
does it otherwise limit the
sheriff's right to "promote,
demote, transfer, and
determine disciplinary
measures, including
dismissal."

In a press release
concerning the new law,
Johnson thanked
Representatives Donald
Brown and Marti Coley and
Senators Durell Peaden Jr.
and Don Gaetz "for their
support in sponsoring this
bill." Johnson also thanked
the Walton County Board of
County Commissioners "for
passing their resolution
showing support for this bill."

DeFuniak Springs Garden Cub wins national awards


The Annual National
Garden Clubs Convention
was held May 24-27 in
Boston. The Florida Fed-
eration of Garden Clubs
won 14 national awards.
Two of the 14 awards
given to Florida went to
the DeFuniak Springs
Garden Club.
The club received the
"No.74 Outdoor Class-
rooms Award" for their
native plant and wild-
flower project in 2003 in-
stalling plants along a bar-
ren and eroded area on the
south side and back of the
DeFuniak Springs Li-
brary. In the past
four years, the club has in-
stalled several hundred
native plants and trees, a
brick walkway, irrigation,
trellises, arbors, a bird
bath, an information box,
plant ID tags and seating.
Donna Davis, the chair-
man of the library garden
project, organizes the
regular maintenance of
the garden. The club plans
to continue to add more


plants and enhance the
garden with more educa-
tional signage. There is no
fee to visit and it is always
open. Special educational
tours are available by re-
quest.
The club also won the
national "No.29 Blue Star
Highway Marker Award."
The group has diligently
worked on the marker
landscape at the intersec-
tion of U.S. 331 and U.S.
90. In the past three years,
the landscape had to be
redone twice due to hurri-
canes and a third time af-
ter a vehicle plowed the
sign down and destroyed
the planting.
Many members of the
club participated in re-
landscaping the area, and
have spent many hours
weeding and replaced
plants when necessary.
The club is proud to main-
tain the marker as a me-
morial to the military per-
sonnel who have served
our country.
The club also received


two state awards at the
81st Annual Florida Fed-
eration of Garden Clubs
State Convention held
May 4 in Orlando. The
club received the "Madira
Bickle Civic Achievement
Award" for their ongoing
project of planting daffo-
dils around Lake DeFu-
niak; on Circle Drive.
The club started plant-
ing yellow "Carlton" daffo-
dil bubs around the lake in
fall 2004. The flowers were
planted to honor the mili-
tary veterans and active
service personnel with
"living yellow ribbons."
The club now has 3,150
bulbs planted. This com-
ing November, the club
will add 2,000 more bulbs.
In time, the display will
become a special attrac-
tion for those who visit his-
torical DeFuniak Springs.
The secondd award was
for No.43 Blue Star Memo-
rial Marker Award." The
club received recognition
for the work on the Blue
Star Marker landscape on


a state, as well as na-
tional level.
The new officers for the
2007-2008 year were in-
stalled at the club's May
luncheon. Co-presidents -
Dara Dobson and Peggy
Caswell; vice-president
ad chairman of the li-
brary native plant garden
- Donna Davis; second
vie-president and chair-
man of civic development
- Marie Lathinghouse;
secretary and book chair-
man Liz Sinclair; trea-
surer and webmaster -
Kathy Grant; scholarship
chairman Cathy Abbott;
tree chairman Jennifer
Fisher; blue star marker
chairman Vivian Slote;
wildflowers and roadside
beautification chairman -
Dara Dobson; youth
chairman Anne Dudley.
The club will not have
formal meeting through
the summer months, al-
though workdays and
weeding will continue.
The first meeting for
2007-2008 will be on Sep-


tember 5.

Paxton couple retire from teaching


By LAKEN DAVIS
As the 2007 school year came to an end at Paxton
High School, the retirement of two long-time teach-
ers began. In May, Paul and Margaret Powell left
the halls of Paxton to begin their retirement.
The two Andalusia residents made the commute
to Paxton High School for many years. In fact, for
Margaret, it was 39.
Margaret, an advanced math teacher, encouraged
her students to work hard to
achieve their goals. "When we
expect the very best, always "Sometimes the
setting high goals, we will re- that want to d
ceive the most from our stu-
dents," she said. encourage that
She added that she also give up."
taught her students life skills
such as having a strong work
ethic, a positive attitude, re-
spect for others, and being pre-
pared for college.
"Sometimes there're students that want to drop
out and, you know, you encourage that student not
to give up," she said. "I've always encouraged my
students to also get enrolled with the dual
enrollment with OWC, to have college credit when
they graduate."
Margaret is proud to have prepared her students
for college math courses and to have encouraged
them to pursue math-related careers and many
have, she said. She was the sponsor of Chi Alpha
Mu, Mu Alpha Theta,' the math team, and the jun-

ior class.
Throughout Paul's career, he taught at Walton
High School, Darlington High School and Paxton
High School. He started teaching history at Paxton
in the early-1980s. One of his main focuses was plan-
ning and organizing the annual senior-class trip. He
initiated fundraisers throughout the years and cre-
ated many other opportunities for students to make
money for the trip.

Most recently, the senior-
class trips have been to New
York City. Paul said that 10
s students years from now, students may
out...you not remember all they read in
.dent not to their history books, but 50
years down the road, they will
remember Gettysburg, Arling-
ton, the Smithsonian, the
rgaret Powell Amish county, Broadway plays,
dinner theaters, standing at
the foot of the Statue of Liberty
and viewing New York City at
night from the Empire State Building.


As for his career overall, Paul said, "My objective
has always been to teach students to become more
productive citizens in society."
For the future, the Powells look forward to trav-
eling and spending time with their family. In fact,
they recently returned from an 11-day tour of

July 15-18

The great invitation of Christ Freeport United
r- ~~~~repr United\r ^r/" T/ Tn'T'*


Dy DR. .n11)1 vIn. JAYi E


The invitation of Christ in
Matthew 11:28-30, indicates
His deep, conscious fitness to
bless all people in all ages. In
verse 27, He says, "All things
are delivered unto Me of My
Father." Then there is the
great invitation in verse 28,
"Come unto Me."
We are invited to rest.
What an opportunity for a
sin-burdened heart! Jesus
offers to give rest from guilt,
from the fear of death, and
the dread of judgment. It is
all a gift. He does not sell it
or just give it to the "best"


people. It is for sinners. It can
be an actual, conscious pos-
session. Even weary workers,
disappointed and downcast
because of fruitlessness, hear
Him say to you, "Come unto
me and rest." Everything
that is a burden to us should
bring us to Christ for rest and
relief.
Are you feeling your task
heavy upon your heart and
strength? Take advantage of
this loving invitation from
the Lord Jesus Christ.

We are invited to serve.


"Take My yoke upon you."
There are different.yokes.
Yokes we put upon our-
selves, and Satan's yoke.
What is Christ's yoke? It
is the yoke which He was
willing put on, the
Father's will. "I delight to
do Thy will, 0 my God"
(Psalm 40:8). The yoke of
Christ means that we are
no longer alone trying to
bear some burden. The
yoke of Christ means that
we have the greatest help
that the universe offers to
get any job finished.


We are invited to learn. "Take
My yoke upon you, and learn of
Me." To learn of Christ, we must
get close to Him. To get close to
Him, we must be yoked with
Him. The yoke of service comes
with the yoke of spiritual wis-
dom. In the school of suffering
and testimony for Christ, the
deeper things of Christ are
learned.
With Christ we learn to be pa-
tient in suffering, to walk hum-
bly, to trust implicitly, to love in-
tensely, and to rejoice exceeding.
Yoke up with Christ. The load
will be easier to bear.

Freedom

Freedom we want, freedom we see
We are free in a land without tyranny.

For what we have now, our forefathers fought
But have we learned from what we were taught?

This country was founded by God fearing men
Who fought tyranny and oppression
and by God they did win.

As we celebrate independence on the Fourth of July
Stop and ponder on those that died and why.

The freedom we have we take for granted
Freedom has to be nurtured after it is planted.

For a reason God-allowed this country to be founded
Freedom was born and for a while it abounded.

The freedoms we have and enjoy everyday
If we don't take care they can be taken away

Freedom is celebrated because we love it so much
This holiday to the heart should have a special touch.

Listen, land of the free, home of the brave
Trust in Jesus, He is the only one that can save

David Bruner

Panhandle lays claim to 35 high school baseball titles


By PATRICK CASEY
The history of baseball in
the Northwest Florida region
of the state is brighter than
its sister sport, softball.
Teams from the Pensacola to
Monticello region have cap-
tured 36 state champion-
ships, according to the ar-
chives of the Florida High
School Athletic Association.
.' Baseball has crowned a
: state champion every year
: since 1922 with Monticello
o claiming our region's first
L title in the sport with a 4-1
win over Mulberry in 1933.
S5 Of the 252 state champion-
ships handed out in the his-
-' tory of baseball at the high
school level, 36 titles have
: been claimed by schools be-
;* tween Pensacola and
C Monticello, or about 14 per-
cent of the championships.
Tallahassee Leon claimed
', three titles from our region
with championships in 1940,
1944, and 1951. In 1949, the,
two schools were awarded
state championships and the
state was split into two
,classes. In 1964, the state
was split into three separate
classes of competition. In
1971, the FHSAA went to
Four classifications of base-
ball play. In 1994, the state
went to five classifications,
-and, in 1996, to six classifi-
cations of schools that play
i for a baseball title.
Pensacola Tate became

Emily Rone, a golfer and
recent graduate from Holmes
!County High School, will
!play college golf at the Uni-
iversity of West Florida this
fall. Rone won a pair of indi-
vidual district titles while
playing for the Bluedevils..
Cal Cochran has accepted-
a job to become an assistant-
coach at Daytona Beach
Community College. The
Pensacola High School boys
basketball coach leaves after
three seasons racking up 62


the region's most successful
program in 2005 as the
Aggies captured their sev-
enth baseball championship
by winning the Class 4A
crown. Tate won champion-
ships in 1962, 1968, 1976,
1984, 1986, and 1998. On av-
erage, Pensacola Tate brings
home a baseball state title
about every six years, since
1962.

Pensacola Escambia can
lay claim to five baseball
state championships while
Tallahassee Leon has won
four titles in their program's
history.
North Florida Christian in
Tallahassee captured this
region's only baseball title in
2007 as the Eagles beat
Montverde 6-1 to capture the
Class 2A crown. NFC(25-6)
now has two baseball titles to
their credit, the Eagles also
won the 1995 state champi-
onship. Pine Forest made it
to the Class 3A state cham-
pionship game in 2007, but
lost a high-scoring affair to
Orlando Bishop Moore 12-10.
Pace High School was the
only school to win a baseball
state championship in 2006
from our region as the Patri-
ots pulled off an incredible
two-out rally in their final at-
bat in the Class 5A state
semifinal against Winter Ha-
ven to capture an 8-7 win.
Pace then beat Hillsborough


11-7 in the state champion-
ship game to earn their third
baseball title.
Pace, Tate, Escambia,
Leon, and Florida High are
the only five schools from the
Pensacola to Monticello re-
gion of the state to lay claim
to more than two baseball
championships.
Walton, Okaloosa, and
Holmes counties have never
had a school capture a base-
ball title. Walton and
Okaloosa county schools
have never had a team play
for a baseball championship
at the high school level while
Holmes County has had just
one. The Holmes County
Bluedevils lost the 1966
championship game to Avon
Park 7-0.
Milton and Pensacola
High have seen the most
frustration in high school
baseball championship
games from our region as
both schools are 0-3 in the
title bout.
Reaching the playoffs has
been difficult for area
schools. Walton has appeared
in the baseball playoffs ten
times, but has a 2-10 record.
Walton hasn't won a baseball
playoff game since 1965.
Paxton became the most
successful school to make a
run in the playoffs as the
Bobcats made the Region I
final in 2007, losing to even-
tual Class A state champion


Jacksonville Eagle's View 8-
4. The Bobcats are 4-4 in four
trips to the playoffs under
Jeff Bradley and have quali-
fied for the playoffs four
times in the last six years.
Freeport has made only
three appearances in the
baseball playoffs and is 0-3,
with the Bulldogs last trip to
the playoffs in 1997. South
Walton has never qualified
for the state tourney and
nearby rival Ponce de Leon
is 0-6 in six appearances.
A limited number of ath-
letes that play several differ-
ent sports has complicated
the mix in summer workouts.
Walton has several athletes
that play football, basketball
and baseball as does Free-
port and South Walton. Pax-
ton and Ponce de Leon have
basketball and baseball as
their main two sports and
finding time to have summer
programs in both without
having a conflict in schedul-
ing is very difficult.
Some coaches prefer ath-
letes choosing one sport and
specializing in it, a practice
that is difficult to uphold in
small schools where every
athlete is needed to fill out a
roster and compete. Baseball
has often been the third sport
{behind football and basket-
ball in Northwest Florida)
and suffered locally due to a
coaching carousel that rarely
sees a high school baseball

coach last more than a couple
of seasons. Private schools
have done extremely well in
baseball in central and
southern Florida, partly be-
cause the weather tends to be
better in those areas in Feb-
ruary when practice starts
for the regular season. Most
private schools also have less
athletes playing basketball
that will join the baseball
team than most small public
schools whose athletes are
finishing basketball season
before picking up a baseball.
Baseball also suffers from
poor timing with the inevi-
table end of the school year,
prom and senior trip all oc-
curring at the same time as
the high school playoffs.
Graduation ceremonies and
club outings make it hard for
athletes to concentrate on
playing the sport while plan-
ning those events on a busy
social calendar, not to men-
tion school work that must be
completed and final exams
that must be. taken to gradu-
ate.. This should be eased
some by the later start of
school in 2007, as school will
not end until June 10 in
2008.

Locally, competition in
baseball has been solid, but
not spectacular. Football and
basketball continue to re-
ceive more emphasis at most
schools in the area, but


progress is being made. At
least one team from our area
has claimed a baseball cham-
pionship in six of the last
seven years.

Kerr wins U.S. Open


By CHUCK HINSON
Her name is not men-

pionship winner, but female
golfer Cristie Kerr has her
name on the LPGA top tro-
phy and the respect of the
press, her colleagues and the
golfing world.


At the Pine Needles Golf
Course in Southern Pines,
NC, the 29-year-old cel-
ebrated her victory that had
been long over-due. Though
strong and showing little
emotion throughout the tour-
nament and the final day of
play, when it was all over she


fell to her knees while tears
poured from her eyes.
It came down to the back
nine of the tournament when
Kerr went neck-and-neck
with Lorena Ochoa. It was
close match, but Kerr's only
two bogeys over her last 45
holes was what clinched the

Hamlin wins New Hampshire


By CHUCK HINSON
Despite having NEXTEL
point leader Jeff Gordon
breathing down his neck,
Denny Hamlin swallowed his
heart and pulled out the vic-
tory at the Lenox Industrial
Tools 300 in Loudon, N.H. It
was Hamlin's first victory of
the season.
Hamlin, who has always


felt that he needed wins to
prove that he was a serious
and professional races, did
what he set out to do. He cap-
tured the attention of not
only the New Hampshire
Speedway, he also got the at-
tention of his fellow racer
and four-time series cham-
pion Jeff Gordon.
Hamlin, the 2006 top


rookie, said that his leg was
shaking so bad that his car
was jerking as he came
around the final turn and
Gordon was just inches be-
hind him. He managed to
pull away from the No. 24 car
and win the race by 0.068
seconds over Gbrdon, and
giving Hamilin hi 'lfiird ca-
reer victory and first season


win since last July at the
Pocono.
Gordon flew in behind
Hamlin for the second place
spot, while Truex finished in
third spot and Dale
Eanrhardt Jr. and Jeff
Green captured the fourth
and fifth place spots.


The victory gave her her
10th career victory and a
winning purse of $560,000.

DeFuniak faces Freeport in Little League Tournament


By REID TUCKER
It was more than a little
hot on the afternoon of Sat-
urday, June 30, but the heat
did little to deter the DeFu-
niak Springs 11-12-year-old
division's baseball team from
achieving a win over Free-
port in the first round of play
at this year's District 1 Little
League Tournament in
Niceville. According to Little
League rules, games last six
innings.

It was clear by the second
inning of play that this would
not be a low-scoring game.
DeFuniak was up 4-0 over


Freeport. Left-fielder John
Clenny was hit by an errant
pitch in the top of the second
inning and advanced to first
base. This set the tone for the
afternoon, with Freeport's
pitching hitting DeFuniak's
batters four times. From
first, Clenny stole to second,
and due to error by the Free-
port infield, scored a run,
bring the tally to 5-0.

Freeport's fortunes im-
proved for the third inning,
though. DeFuniak only man-
aged one runner on first base
before the end of their at-bat.
At the plate, Freeport's Da-


kota Davis got a two- run
homer out of DeFuniak's
Christopher Murphy, allevi-
ating some of Freeport's woes
and bringing the score to 5-
2.
In the fourth inning,
things went from bad to
worse. DeFuniak's second
baseman, Brennan Orcutt,
took a pitch on the helmet
and loaded up the bases
against Freeport, who then
walked in a run, resulting in
the first of several pitching
changes for the team. DeFu-
niak scored another run,
bringing the score to 7-2,
though their advance was


halted by a double play.
In the top of the fifth in-
ning, DeFuniak took no com-
ers from Freeport and in the
bottom, Jesse Cosson hit a
double. Things got dicey
thereafter.

DeFuniak's pitcher, Kyle
Sloan, was hit when he
stepped up to the plate, giv-
ing him a free trip to first
base. Jesse Cosson ran home,
bringing the score to 8-2, and
there were runners on first
and second with only one out.
Freeport switched up its
pitcher again, who proceeded
to load up the bases on balls.


So, they switched pitchers
again, bringing out number
11. DeFuniak would score
again before the inning was
out, but their rally was
stopped short when Zach
Forehand, DeFuniak's short-
stop, popped one up to the
outfield.

In the top of the sixth in-
ning, DeFuniak needed only
to retire Freeport's batters to
finish the game, so Forehand
was switched in as close-out
pitcher. Forehand, couch
Ronnie Bell said, is capable
of throwing an 83 mile-per-
hour fastball. "The kid needs


some experience," Bell said.
Forehand did as promised,
preventing Freeport's batters
from mounting a final at-
tempt..The final score was 9-
2 in DeFuniak's favor.
Head coach Ronnie
Murphy said of the
afternoon's game: "We need
to hit better, but the defense
was on."
DeFuniak advances to
the 5 p.m. game on Tuesday,
July 3, against Niceville-Na-
tional. Murphy said, "The
kids played an outstanding
game. We've got a good shot,
if we' can keep our heads
right."

Evans named STAR


student at
Blake Evans, was named a
2007 STAR student at
Valwood School, in Valdosta,
GA.
Evans attained this honor
after scoring 2090 out of 2400
on the SAT. Future plans are
to enter a career with the fed-
eral government.
"I like studying different
foreign cultures and lan-
guages, one of which is Chi-
nese, and I just began study-
ing Japanese last week.
"I'm trying to go into the
CIA, so these are both good
languages to know," said
Evans: *
Evans said he lives with
his mother Kay Evans and
she hounds him to do well
and doesn't let him settle for
less.
Evans went to public
school in Florida, where his
father, Jerry Evans, lives,
until he was 13. He believes
the private education setting
of Valwood has helped
greatly in preparing for the


Valwood
future.
Teachers at Valwood de-
scribe him as intelligent, ath-
letic and friendly. Evans
plans to attend the Univer-
sity of Georgia this fall to
pursue a degree in interna-
tional business. He is the
grandson of the late Roland
and Ruby DeFranco, and the
late Hubert and Helen
Evans, all formerly of
Florala.

Unique fuel plant

may locate in Walton


By DOTTY NIST
A business interested in
locating in Walton County
could put the county on the
cutting edge of the alterna-
tive energy field, plus create
over 150 good-paying jobs for
local people.
On June 26, representa-,
tives of Livingston, AE.-
based Gulf Coast Energy
spoke at length with Walton
County commissioners about
their company and their de-
sire to locate an energy plant
at the county-owned Mossy
Head Industrial Park.
Gulf Coast Energy Presi-
dent and CEO Mark Warner
told the commissioners that
the company would like to
build a combination
biodiesel/ethanol plant in the
industrial park. He ex-
plained that this would be
the first such plant in the
United States using a com-
pletely new "modular/cellulo-
sic non-fermentation tech-
nology."
The initial phase of the
plant wouldoccupy only a 50
by 100-feet area and could be
up in running within six or
seven months, Warner said.
The company is seeking to-
buy or lease a 50-acre site at
1the county-owned industrial
park to allow for expansion.
He added that there are
substantial environmental
benefits to the technology the
company plans to use, in that
emissions, if any, would be at
a "parts per million" level. He
also said the plant would pro-
duce absolutely no .hazard-
ous waste.


District 3 Commissioner
Larry Jones called Gulf
Coast Energy's presentation,
"a very exciting pro-
posal."


The company would ex-
pect to be employing 155
people at build-out of the
plant, with hourly wages
ranging from $14 per hour
for production workers to $18
per hour for team leaders,

SWMCD commissioner"


Burke sues Magee for


defamation


By JEFFREY POWELL
The South Walton Mos-
quito Control District
(SWMCD) met on Wednes-
day, June 27, to conduct a
special meeting concerning
the 2007-08 tentative de-
tailed work plan budget. The
special meeting was neces-
sary due to the last regular
meeting being adjourned
prematurely.
Just as the meeting was to
begin, Commissioner Charlie
Burke arrived with a repre-
sentative who served Chair-
man John Magee with a defa-
mation of character lawsuit.
According to Magee, the law-
suit is based on comments he
gave during a recent televi-
sion interview.
The SWMCD has recently
come under media attention
after Burke publicly raised
questions concerning the sal-
ary of Gary D'Andrea,
SWNCD director. Then more
media attention followed
when allegations were made
that Burke might not reside
in the district he serves, con-
trary to state regulations.
"This is a frivolous law-
suit," said Chairman Magee
regarding Burke's defama-
tion suit. "Apparently, Burke


felt my comments were det-
rimental to his political as-
pirations, whatever they
might be. I will hire a law-
yer to answer these charges.."
Following a tense start to
the proceedings, the budget
was then discussed.
Director Gary D'Andrea
conducted an intricate ac-
counting of all the proposed
budgetary allotments. The
2007-08 proposed budget in-
cluded a cut of approximately
six percent, according to
D'Andrea. The 2006-07 bud-
get was $2,116,238 as op-
posed to the 2007-08 budget
of $1,968,668.
"To be prudent, we needed
to respond to statewide cuts,"
said Magee. "This is a cut for
the taxpayer, and we are still
providing the same service."
On hand for Wednesday's
meeting was Walton County
Taxpayers Association repre-
sentative Bob Hudson. "The
association commends you
.for rolling back your budget,".
Hudson said. "Taxes are a
concern for everyone in the
county."
The tentative budget was
then approved by a vote of
two to one after discussion,
with Commissioner Jim
Crawford casting the dis-


senting vote. "I thought the
cut was too much," Crawford
said. "The state recona-
mended three percent arid
we cut approximately six pe wr-
cent. That might hurt us ne xt
year."
Also of concern for t]he
board were the receiht
charges made against Co m-
missioner Burke concern ng
his legal residency. T he
board's attorney, All an
Ramey, recently filed a co m-
plaint regarding Burke's
residency with the Floritda
Elections Commission.
Chairman Magee said. he
is concerned that votes m, ide
by Burke since those alle ga-
tions were filed could pr ove
to be void. "If the charges
prove to be true, we could
possibly lose state fundir ig,"
said Magee.
As for the budget,
D'Andrea said he was (;on-
-tent that the vote went the
way it did. "We got the bud-
get approved on time, no, v we
can move forward," D'An drea
said. "One of the positive as-
pects of this organization is
the devotion and perfor-
mance of our employees re-
gardless of what goes c m in
the boardroom."


with employees receiving a
full benefits package. Profes-
sional staff would also be
employed at the plant, and
on-the-job training would be
provided for employees in
conjunction with state and
local programs.
The company would
pledge to provide a $100.000
performance bond and to con-
tribute one-fourth of one cent
per gallon of production to
Walton County for the first
ten years of operation.
According to information
provided by the company, the
plant's production of
biodiesel and ethanol would
be "synergistic," in that glyc-
erin generated through etha-
nol manufacture would be
used in therethanol manufac-
ture process. In the initial
phase, the company plans to
produce 10 million gallons
per year of biodiesel and the.
same amount of ethanol.
Warner called the demand
for biodiesel "huge." The com-
pany cited a statement by the
National Biodiesel Board
that petroleum diesel use
now amounts to 20 percent
of all U.S. transportation fuel
consumption.
Carmakers are also said to
be planning to add new die-
sel models, and the sale of
diesel vehicles is reportedly
expected to triple to nine per-
cent of the U.S. market by
2013.
Warner noted that"
biodiesel is a cleaner burning
alternative and that over
three units of energy are
gained for every unit of en-
ergy used to produce
biodiesel the most favorable
energy balance ratio of any
fuel, he said.
He said that, while most:
biodiesel plants in the United ,
States are only equipped to
use soybean oil as a "feed-:
stock" to produce fuel, Gulf:
Coast Energy's technology
has the flexibility, to utilize
multiple feedstocks, includ-
ing other vegetable oils and
animal renderings. It is ex-
pected that the company's
biodiesel plant will use 60
percent soybean oil and 40

Santiago Diner saga continues


By JEFFREY POWELL
"I don't know if I am go-
ing to live long enough to see
this project completed," said
a frustrated William Horn.
Horn is an engineer on a
project that is trying to open
a 1950s style diner near CR-
393 and Veterans Road in
Santa Rosa Beach. The diner
was formerly located on U.S.
98 in Miramar Beach.
Horn's comments came
during the June 28 Walton
County Zoning Board of Ad-
justments (ZBA) meeting in
which he had hoped a vari-
ance would be approved al-
lowing the project to move
forward. Horn's hopes were
dashed when attorney Gary
Vorbeck, representing the
Scenic Corridor Association,
suggested that only the De-
sign Review Board (DRB)
had the authority to grant
such a variance. The DRB


has already denied the use of
the diner because, in their
opinion, it does not meet
guidelines set forth by the
county. The county's Scenic
Corridor Standards specifi-
cally prohibits metal build-
ings unless they are covered
with code-approved facades.
The modular diner's exterior
has a chrome-like finish.
Despite the original denial
by the DRB, the Walton
County Commissioners ap-
proved the diner 'as is' dur-
ing its April 24 regular meet-
ing. This decision was later
rescinded because county
planning and development
services staff felt the decision
to be incorrect.
It is now up to the diner's
owners Victor and Maria
Santiago to petition the DRB
to grant a variance or to ap-
peal the DRB's original de-
nial of the project.


EFFORTS TO OPE N the Santiago Diner in Santa Rosa Beach have hit yet another stum-
bling block.

Ban on building permits in Driftwood Estates continues


By DOTTY NIST
In a decision apparently to
no one's complete liking, this
week the policy of withhold-
ing building permits for new
construction in the Driftwood
Estates subdivision was con-
tinued. The decision was
based on stated public health
and safety concerns. Drift-
wood Estates is the arrow-
head-shaped Buck Bayou-
area subdivision north 'of
Sandestin Resort.
The June 28, 3-0 decision
by the Walton County Board
of County Commissioners
(BCC) not only continued an
existing 15-day cessation of
building permit issuance for
phases I-B and 2-C in the
subdivision, it extended the
policy to all areas of Drift-
wood Estates.
An attorney representing
Olson & Associates, the com-
pany developing lots in the
interior of the subdivision,
objected to the decision as a
violation of his client's prop-


erty rights. Owners of ex:.ist-
ing homes in the subdivision
objected that the action idid
not go far enough in addre ss-
ing alleged inadequate
stormwater drainage infira-
structure in the subdivisii on
and access problems.
Commissioners present
for the June 28 meeting we re
Cindy Meadows, Sara
Comander, and BCC Chai r-
man Ken Pridgen. Commi s-
sioners Larry Jones an d
Scott Brannon were absent
due to prior engagements.
On June 11, in response t;o
citizen complaints, the con -
missioners had voted to sto p
issuing building permits iin
two phases of the subdivision
where new construction wat s
slated. The action had been
referred to as a moratorium.
Discussion at the June 218
meeting indicated that the
term had been incorrect.
"There is not a morato-.
rium in effect," asserted lo-.
cal attorney George Ralph

ON JUNE 28, the Walton County Board of County Comrn- lic hearings for a decision on an official 120-day moratorium
missioners (BCC) voted to continue with the cessation of is- on issuance of building permits for construction in the flood-
suing building permits for new construction in the Driftwood prone subdivision. Pictured is local attorney George Ralph

the subdivision. The commissioners also voted to hold pub- ates, developer of property in the interior of the Driftwood
Estates subdivision. (Photo by Dotty Nist)


Miller, speaking on behalf of
Olson & Associates.


"They cannot get
out of their subdivi-
sion in the event of a
storm," said Commis-
sioner Cindy Meadows.



Miller explained that pub-
lic hearing is required to le-
gally enact a moratorium. He
stated that the proper termi-
nology for the existing situa-
tion is "a cessation of build-
ing permits." While the June
11 decision had been at a
public meeting, there had
been no specific legal notice
announcing that the commis-
sioners ,would consider a
moratorium.
Mike Burke, interim
county attorney, did not con-
test Miller's contention re-
garding moratoriums. He
recommended the setting
and official advertisement of
two public hearings to con-
sider setting a moratorium of
.not more than 120 days in
"length. Part of the June 11
'decision had been to sched-
iile the June 28 meeting,
"where pertinent issues
'withiri the subdivision could
lbe examined further and the
possibility of a moratorium
cn building permits through
t;he hurricane season could
be considered.
Adding to concerns about
development in the interior
of the subdivision has been
tihe fact that only one access
road exists for Driftwood Es-
tates, and it is said to be sub-
jcEct to flooding. A previous al-
te'rnate
access via Shipwreck Road
h as been walled off for some
ti me, and residents have un-
dertaken litigation to change
th at situation.
Also, in May, Walton
County Planning and Devel-
opiment was contacted by
Charles Gautier of the state
De apartment of Community
Affairs (DCA), who ex-
prw:ssed his department's
concerns that development
order provisions attached to


the Driftwood Estates and
Sandestin property regard-
ing storm water drainage,
access and evacuation might
not have been properly ad-
dressed.
Lane Smith, an attorney
representing the Greater
Driftwood Estates
Homeowners Association,
brought up the matter of the
DCA letter at this week's
BCC meeting.
"The state has asked some
rather pointed questions," he
said. Smith did not envision
the concerns identified by the
state being resolved within
the proposed moratorium
time frame. "In 120 days, I
don't think we're going to fix
that," Smith said.
Smith suggested that the
moratorium go on indefi-
nitely, with the burden of
proof to get it lifted being on
the parties requesting its ces-
sation. A requirement to do
that should be having the
stormwater drainage in place
as required by the develop-
ment order, he argued.
In the meantime, the issu-
ance of additional building
permits would result in the
removal of water-holding
vegetation and an increase in
-tormn wder drainage going
ifntiothe bay and standing in
homeowners' yards, he
stated.
Alex Kish, a resident, also
asked for a longer morato-
rium than 120 days. He
noted that homeowners have
been coming to the commis-
sion for several years asking
for a solution.
Smith called the single en-
trance/exit road for Drift-
wood Estates "the two-ton el-
ephant in the room," and "a
major safety problem." He
speculated on what might
happen if the road flooded
and a resident needed imme-
diate medical attention, or a
fire broke out in the neigh-
borhood and firefighters
could not access it to respond.
One resident with health
problems, Pat Boone, stated
that he had moved to Drift-
wood Estates in order to be
near Sacred Heart Hospital.-
He wondered if he had made
the right move.
Smith said that recently
access to the subdivision was

Freeport, the 20,000-square-

Biophilia is a term coined
by world-renowned biologist
and Harvard professor, E. 0.
Wilson, author of "The Diver-

Biophilia as an awakening of
the love of nature that exists
within each of us.
M.C. Davis, the entrepre-

Cormac Phalen, principal

"The campus will have
classrooms, conference ar-
eas, labs and access to a wild-

be operated by the Emerald

said.
Since conservation is a key
message of the Biophila Cen-

would utilize sustainable de-

will be built to LEED stan-

means it will have a softer

Building orientation, en-

Many of Walton County's
coastal dune lakes will soon
be decorated with warning
signs telling people it is ille-
gal to tamper with the
outfalls.
Laura Pennington, a per-
mit specialist with the
county's public works office,
said her office was asked by
the Coastal Dune Lake Ad-
visory Board (CDLAB) to
post the signs. "We appar-
ently had signs out there
years ago and they have
blown away and we were
asked to replace them," she
said.
The sign department
within public works has con-
structed the signs and the
signs will be put on nine of
the lakes. "The permit [for

Movie Review

Someone's in
By BRUCE COLLIER
It wouldn't be summer
"without an offering from
Pixar. This year it's
"Ratatouille," directed by
Brad Bird and featuring the
vocal talents of Patton
Oswalt, Brad Garrett, Ian
Holm, Peter O'Toole, and
Janeane Garofalo. No fewer
than six people were involved
in creating and writing the
story alone, and the credits
list enough animation and
visual effects artists to popu-
late a George Lucas retro-
spective.
In case you've missed the
trailers, this is the one with
the rats in the Paris restau-
rant. Any studio that sets out
to make Americans accept
both rats and the French in
the same movie has set the
bar high for itself. Still,
"Ratatouille" breaks the fam-
ily animation-flick mold in
many ways.
For instance,, there's the
choice of subject. It's cooking,
specifically high-class
French cuisine. The hero is
Remy, an appealing blue rat
from the French provinces
that longs to cook, and eat,
good food. Being a member of
an extended rat family
("colony"), Remy spends most
of his time browsing through
garbage in search of suste-
nance. Gifted with an uncom-
mon sense of smell and a dis-
cerning palate, Remy dis-
agrees with his father's phi-
losophy that "food is fuel."
His attempts to procure the
finer things leads his colony
to an encounter with a hu-
man, and a harrowing sewer
ride to Paris, City of Light,
City of Rat Dreams.
In Paris, Remy finds him-
self in the kitchen of a res-
taurant formerly owned by
Chef Gusteau. Gusteau, now
deceased, was the author of
a book called "Anyone Can
Cook," which happens to be
Remy's personal bible of
cooking lore. A series of
events impossible to describe
any way but visually pairs
Remy with a aspiring young
cook named Linguini. In a
gourmet twist on "Cyrano de

Florida Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection
(FDEP) is pretty specific
about where we can put the
signs," Pennington said.
Right now the signs are in
the truck of District 5 assis-
tant road foreman Ricky
Howell, who said he is wait-
ing for the county to provide
him with the GPS coordi-
nates to place signs on
Draper, Camp Creek, Red
Fish, Eastern and Oyster
Lakes. Signs will be placed
by state employees on those
lakes that are on state park'
property, including
Stallworth, Alligator, West-
ern and Deer Lakes. Further-
more, Howell said he has to
be in possession of signed
consent forms from
homeowners. When the
forms are signed, signs will


be placed on private property.
Those lakes are the only ones
the FDEP has given the
county permission to post.
"Based on stories I have
heard, people are opening
the outfalls, which is a viola-
tion of FDEP statutes. There
are also county planning and
zoning department ordi-
nances against tampering


with the outfalls,"
Pennington said. "Mainly we
are concerned about those
lakes with a lot of houses on
them," she added.
Pennington noted there is
no set penalty if a person is
caught tampering with an
outfall, and the language on
the signs themselves was dic-
tated by FDEP.


The signs read:

"Warning: Any excavation seaward of the coastal
construction control line (CCCL) to include open-
ing or alteration of coastal dune lake outfalls pro-
hibited without possession of a valid permit pur-
suant to Chapter 161 of the Florida Statues. Vio-
lation punishable by fines and other administra-
tive penalties."


the kitchen with whiskers: "Ratatouille"



Bei-gerac," Remy works be-
hind the scenes under a hat,
actually to pass Linguini off
as a fabulously talented
young chef. Success and star-
dom follow; but for the wrong
guy. Linguini is likable, but
a hopeless duffer without his
"little chef' guiding his every
move.
Complicating this are
Skinner, the suspicious head
chef, Colette, a saucy female
cook, and a professionally sa-
distic restaurant critic
named Anton Ego. The latter,
with a cracked-ice voice from
Peter O'Toole, looks like he
slunk in from a Tim Burton
movie, or just missed being
cast as. a drag Maleficent in
"Sleeping Beauty." Well,
Pixar is Disney country now,
and we all remember Walt's
flair for screen villains.
What follows is more than
just a lot of fancy animation,
sight gags, and carefully
spaced moments ofinter-spe-
cies sweetness. They're all
there, of course, but
"Ratatouille" offers a more


substantial movie meal. It's
about family, loyalty, passion,
and whatever it is that drives
people to excel at art, or in
this case, dinner. It makes
fun of the French if you've
seen any of Blake Edward's
"Pink Panther" films, the,
perspective will be familiar -
but with a balance of respect
and affection.
And sacre bleu, does it
look good! It's almost impos-
sible to make Paris appear
more romantic on screen.
than it actually is in real life.
Still, Bird and company nail


it, from the misty night views
of the Seine and its endless
bridges down to the polish
marks on the copper pots and
the label on the Chateau
Latour '61.
This is a "G" film, but it
does deal with rodent exter-
mination, illegitimacy, and
the French law of succession
of property, and it does re-
quire close attention. But go,
and make it early enough in
the evening to stop by your
favorite bistro afterward.
Yo 'll probably be craving a
bite.

Watch-
ing the
activities
this past
weekend "
and the
days lead-
ing up to
t h e
Fourth of
July, it was a shock
to see just what
people were cel-
ebrating. Do all the
crowds mean it is a
time to celebrate the
country's indepen-
dence, or just a
chance to come to
the beach and watch
the fireworks?

Coming back up from the
south end of the county on
Saturday, traffic was so
thick, the Walton County
Sheriff's Department was re-
routing traffic down Site C-
6 Road and away from the
U.S. 331 and S.R. 20 intersec-
tion. The traffic stretched
all the way back to U.S. 90 in
DeFuniak Springs.
There were reports of a'
wood fire, but the traffic was
once again heavy because of
weekend travel, and the
Fourth of July weekend.
For years, department
stores, car dealerships, and
supermarkets, have always
had commercials for sales
taking place in and around
the Fourth. These are the
same businesses that stay
open Christmas Day to make
that last sale and reopen the
day after Christmas, to take
it all back in refunds and sell
the customer something
more expensive.
Nothing like a little more
"holiday cheer" to have to pay
for during a time of celebra-
tion of our saviour's birth.
But when it comes to the cel-
ebration of our country and
all that it means to millions,
especially during this par-
ticular time, what all the
traffic, long-lines and high
volumes of tourists, really
tell us about the Fourth of
July?
For many, it is the summer
vacation that they pull the
family together in a minivan
and hit the road for a week
of sunshine, sea and sand. On
the Fourth, there are more
flags being flown, kids carry


them in their hands and even
adults have t-shirts on that
say" live and die for America"
and "Nobody better tread on
the U.S.A."
But what does it all really
mean in terms of celebrating
the actual signing of the Dec-
laration of Independence? Do
we still honor those who set
forth our country's future?
Do we really care about the
ideas and the fact that so
many have fought and lost
their lives due to war?
It was refreshing to see one
automobile this past week-
end that had more than just
"Florida or bust," or "headed
to state cheerleading All-
Stars" messages. It simply
stated, "Happy Birthday
America."
I thought how thoughtful
and patriotic that statement
was and how simple the mes-
sage.

As people crowded into the
restaurants, tourist traps,
nightclubs and waited for 30
minutes to fill the car up with
gas, it was interesting to ask
a few questions and find out
the reason that people made
their way to the Emerald
Coast instead of staying at
home with family, shooting
fireworks off in the backyard
and supporting local mer-
chants in their own home-
towns.
The reasoning ranged
from, "this is the time we just
decided to kick back and hit
the beach," to" it is just a few
days that I can catch up on
my drinking."
Almost all the responses to
my questions were about
having a few days to do what
they wanted, maybe cook out,
see family, sleep late and be
free to do whatever they felt
like doing. I did ask a retired
Navy commander from Bir-
mingham why he was down
on the Florida Coast, and his
response gave me hope once
again.
He simply looked at me
and replied, "my wife and I
always meet our children and
grandchildren in Seagrove


Beach on the
Fourth of July.
It is not that
I we are all big
19 S fans of the sea
and sand, it is
just one of the
-t v t -q t most beautiful
places to
watch the fire-
works, and
just the right
location to ex-
plain to my grandchildren
why we have the freedom to
watch those fireworks."
Survey says, good answer
sir.

More and more, the news
is showing immigrants and
illegal aliens, celebrating the
victory of their countries
flags being flown over the
American flags at public
schools and even one city
building in California. We as
Americans should first not
allow that to happen and sec-
ond, have more pride in our
flag and country.
It brings tears to my eyes
and even goosebumps to my
arms to hear patriotic music
blaring over the speakers
during a fireworks presenta-
tion. It is a feeling like no
other to know that we are
celebrating and honoring our
independence and telling all
those who have served or
who are currently serving in
the armed forces, we appre-
ciate all you do for us and
America.
As the flags get rolled up
and put back in storage for
another year, as the grill is
cleaned and put in the ga-
rage, and as family members
begin to leave and make their
way back home, try to keep
the spirit of our country alive
in our hearts. Never let the
red, white and blue colors of
the American flag fade and
always keep the patriotic
tunes playing in your head
throughout the year.
Who knows, if this nation
continues to allow other
countries flags to be flown
over our government build-
ings and their language
taught as an acceptable al-
ternate language in our
country, we might not have
to worry about saluting the
American flag. We can just
change our name from the
United State of America to
the United Immigrant and
Alien Republic.
Don't laugh. The state of
California is now allowing
just that scenario to happen
at some of their government
buildings.
