By BRUCE COLLIER
The Florida Highway Pa-
trol (FHP), Walton County
Sheriff's Office (WCSO), and
LifeFlight emergency trans-
port responded an automo-
bile crash on Interstate 10
that took place on Monday,
July 9. The accident occurred
two miles east of the DeFu-
niak Springs exit at approxi-
mately 10:30 a.m.
Investigators said that a
vehicle apparently ran off the
road and into a tree. The
driver and two passengers
sustained "serious" injuries,
and were transported by
LifeFlight helicopter to hos-
pitals in Pensacola. The

The Lowe-down on the home center


By JOSHUA SMITH
. The DeFuniak Springs
City Council (DFSCC) voted
unanimously Monday to ap-
prove the compromise agree-
ment for variance requests
made regarding the proposed
development of a Lowe's
Home Center.
The previous request was
for a 17.9 percent reduction
in parking spaces, from the
436 requried to 358.
The approved variance re-
quires 403 parking spaces, a
reduction of 7.6 percent.
In return, the city will pro-
vide the buffer area on the
east side of the property,
rather than requiring the
buffer be on Lowe's property.
The property to be used for
the buffer area is already
city-owned. The second vari-
ance, changing the landscap-
ing requirements to match
the reduction in parking, was
also approved as amended
unanimously.
"I believe we've set an ex-
ample for surrounding cit-
ies," said council member
Wayne Huffman. I'm im-
pressed with the variety of
different trees."
Council member Don
Harrison praised city Plan-
ning Director Greg Scoville
for not only his work with the
landscaping plans with
Lowe's but also other devel-
opments, noting in particu-
lar the renovation of the old


Wal-Mart building and the
new Bank of Bonifay branch,
currently under construc-
tion. "I'm by no means a tree-
hugger," said Scoville, "but I
do like trees."
City Marshall Michael
Adkinson also presented
three proposed ordinances or
the council's consideration
that will be voted on at the
next regular meeting.
The first would require
that registered sexual offend-
ers and predators not live
within 2,000 feet of certain
locations in the city, such as
schools, parks, public school
bus. stops, day car centers or
playgrounds.
Current registered offend-
ers and predators are al-
ready mandated by the state
to live at least 1,000 feet from
these areas. While it is a
felony under state law to live
within 1,000 feet of these ar-
eas, the proposed ordinance
would make it a misde-
meanor to live within 1,001-
2,000 feet.
The new ordinance would
make it practically illegal for
offenders and predators to
live in the north area of the
city. The second ordinance
would ban offenders and
predators from entering city
parks. There is currently no
regulation against this, and
Adkinson has previously
noted that his officers have
no power to remove them


from this area where they
may prey on children.
Both ordinances were sent
to City Attorney Clayton
Adkinson for review in order
to be adopted aIl the next
council meeting.


Also proposed by
Adkinson would be to begin
collecting a $2 surcharge on
civil and criminal traffic pen-
alties for offenses that occur

Impact


on the


police

By JOSHUA SMITH
Police impact fees may
now be further rather than
closer to coming into effect in
the city of DeFuniak Springs
after Monday's city council
meeting.
In the previous June 25
city council meeting, council
member Don Harrison raised
concerns over the level 6f
commercial and industrial
police fees proposed in a
study conducted by the Gov-
ernment Services Group
(GSG).
(The proposed fees are
$376.28 per each residential
unit, $2.16 per square foot for
commercial development,
$1.91 per square foot for in-
stitutional development, and
$1.21 per square foot for in,-
dustrial development.
"First of all," Harrison
said, "I'm totally in favor of
impact fees. My main con-
cern wasn't the residential
fees, but the commercial,"
said Harrison.
Harrison pointed out that
a large development such as
the proposed.Lowe's Home
Center would require impact
'fees in excess of $325,000.
"A 20,000 sq. ft. building
would be $43,000 in fees,"
said Harrison. "I'm afraid
we're going to discourage de-
velopment. If you go ten
times higher than surround-
ing areas, where does that
put you for competitiveness?"
City Marshal Mike
Adkinson pointed out that
the proposed cost may very
well be legitimate.
"People always focus on
the criminal," he said. "But
you also have to think of traf-
fic accidents caused by inr
creased traffic flow, security
issues within these develop-i
ments, as well as retail'
theft."
Adkinson also noted, how-
ever, that he didn't want to
hamper growth either.
"I'm not talking about the
actual rates themselves," he
said. "I couldn't be any more
pro-business. But we have to
understand what it costs to
do business. For us to fail to
do our job due to lack of fund-

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, JULY 12, 2007


By LAKEN DAVIS
Recent U.S. Census fig-
ures indicated that approxi-
mately 24 percent of adults
age 25 and older in Walton
County did not complete high
school. The census also re-
ported that more than 6,000
Walton County citizens live
below the poverty level.
These figures are risk factors
that may contribute to put-
ting Walton County youth at
risk for substance abuse and
other problematic behaviors,
according to a Chautauqua
Offices of Psychotherapy and
Evaluation (COPE) Center
program project overview.
However, three COPE Cen-
ter programs are active in
fighting these risk factors.

Headquartered in Free-
port, Florida, Grit & Grace is
the official folk life play of
Walton County, now in its
eighth year. The annual pro-
ductions, which tell different
stories each year, always fea-
ture original music plus sing-
ing and dancing, providing
wholesome entertainment

ter. The center offers mental
health and substance abuse
treatment services, including
outpatient counseling, resi-
dential services, prevention
education, and crisis counsel-
ing, according to its Web site.
COPE has arrangements
with the Department of Chil-
dren and Families to reach
out to students at local
schools. In the past, preven-
tion programs were adminis-
tered during school time.
However, for the upcoming
year, contracts are under ap-
proval that would make the
programs after-school only,

fered to the community is
called Promoting Appropri-

nity-based program that tar-
gets children ages 5 to 12.
PALS uses a curriculum
called LifeSkills, an eight-
week program that focuses
on drug resistance, violence
prevention, self-manage-
ment, and general social
skills. Many of the children
iin the program have parents
who are involved with sub-
!stance abuse and other nega-
tive behaviors, according to
the overview. The major ob-
jective of PALS is to change
behaviors linked to sub-
stance abuse, and increase
knowledge of good decision
making in Walton County
children. Parental involve-
ment is encouraged through
workshops, newsletters, and
weekly updates.
"It reaches the kids before
they get to the age where
they start experimenting
with drugs," said Parker.
In an essay focused on
talking to children about
drugs and alcohol, Karen
Alessio, a COPE prevention
counselor, said it is impor-
tant to establish and main-
tain open communication
with children. Alessio has
been a. COPE counselor since
November 2006.
"Building a close relation-
ship with them when they
are young will make it easier

grams. These provide strategies for prevention of substance abuse and promote positive life
skills.


for your child to come to you
when they have a problem,"
she included in the essay. She
added that one way of edu-
cating children about the
dangers of drugs and alcohol
is to role-play and provide
the child with different ways
of saying, "No."
In the future, because it
will be an after-school pro-
gram, PALS would like to
take advantage of the SPICE
(Student Programs in Com-
munity Education) program
at Maude Saunders Elemen-
tary School, Alessio said. Stu-
dents from both Maude
Saunders and West DeFu-
niak Elementary enroll in


SPICE.
In addition to the PALS
elementary-age program,
COPE offers programs for
middle school and high school
students that provide pre-
vention services.
The middle school pro-
gram called STAR, Students
Taking Active Responsibility,
promotes awareness of symp-
toms and effects of substance
abuse. Its goal is to reduce


the likelihood of substance
experimentation by youth.
Alessio is currently active
with this program.
"A lot of kids don't see the
connection 6f their actions
now, when they are young, to
the future," Alessio said.
During the summer, the
program allows for Walton

IMPACT


FROM FRONT


ing is legally indefensible."
Harrison said that three
or four business leaders ap-
proached him after the last
meeting, thanking him for
voicing concern on the issue.
Harrison said they were also
concerned that the amount of
the fee would discourage de-
velopment.
An impact fee is a charge
levied to a developer with the
issuance of a building permit
that requires the developer
to pay for the impact to the
infrastructure on a particu-
lar governmental entity.
This would allow the im-
pact of new development to
a community to be paid for
by those causing the need for
expanded services, and not
current residents.
The funds raised by the
fees would go toward capital
improvement projects.
"You have to think a little
beyond the building," said
Adkinson. Adkinson pointed
out that many other capital
improvements go beyond just
cars and guns.
Adkinson said that com-
patibility issues with both
software and hardware in
the department's computer
system create backlogs.
"We're about 95 percent of
the computer usage for the
city," said Adkinson. "Our
operating software is nine
years old, and was bought at
a really low rate then. To
upgrade to current software,
it would be anywhere from
$150,000-$300,000. We're
almost to the point where we
need a dedicated Information
Technologies (IT) employee."
Adkinson pointed out that
his station's 911 dispatch
equipment lacked a suffi-
cient facility to keep it from
overheating and would have
to soon put in a window air
conditioning unit to cool the
room and the equipment.
"We need to be preparing
for new growth, but we
haven't even caught up to
where we need to be right
now," he said. "With growth,
there's going to be a certain
infrastructure cost. .I mean.
this station, is falling down
around us. If you fail to solve
the problem now, it's just go-
ing to cost more later, and
we're one lightning strike
away from finding out just
how expensive it is."
Adkinson also said that
his first priority was putting


police officers on the street.
"Our long-range plan calls
for more staffing, and I
haven't heard a complaint
about it," Adkinson said.
"Since we're in agreement on
staffing, the next logical step
is the infrastructure."
This is an area that
Adkinson did praise the
council for. "They have been
one of the most progressive
councils I've worked with,"
he said.
"We needed a new police
station ten years ago," said
city council member James
Huffman.
The fire impact fees pro-
posed by GSG were satisfac-
tory to Harrison.
"I think we're at a point
where the businesses here
will set a standard for what
is coming here," said
Huffman. "Are we going to
pass the costs of development
on current citizens? We've
seen places where growth
outgrows infrastructure, and
we don't want that. We need
to get the horse in front of the
cart."
The GSG proposed resi-
dential impact fee for fire
was on par with the police
fee, at $374.22.
However the commercial
fee would be $.55 per square
foot for commercial develop-
ment, $.06 per square foot for
institutional development,
and $.82 per square foot for
industrial development.
Margerite McCauley, rep-
resenting GSG, gave the
council two possible options
for moving forward if they
objected to the current fees.
McCauley noted that the
data provided by the study,
which is the number of calls
responded to by the service,
did not break down between
different types of commercial
categories, such as retail,
lounge/restaurant, etc.
"I have a gut feeling that
it could be bad data," said
Harrison. "The figures may
be out of line."
McCauley said that new
data could be provided that
would show who is using the
services, and subcategories
could be allocated to distrib-
ute the impact fees more eq-
uitably among businesses.
"If you have two bars built
in the city compared to two
bookstores," said Harrison,
"you're going to have a big
difference in call volume."


McCauley warned that
this would simply redistrib-
ute the same fee. "If you
break it down into further cat-
egories, then one area is go-
ing to decrease, and another
is going to skyrocket," she
said.
Adkinson said that the
current software system
would not allow them do this
classification. "It would have
to be done manually," he said.
Harrison said that he
wasn't sure if he wanted an-
other study done with more
up-to-date and detailed data,
but hasn't ruled the possibil-
ity out. The other option
would be to allow businesses
to conduct their own impact
studies to refute the city's fee.
The study would have to be
done at the cost of the devel-
oper, and the council would
have to accept the study's
findings.
Harrison proposed to
adopt a reduction of the po-
lice rate to 25 percent of the
proposed rate. When asked
by Huffman, "How 'did you
come up with 25 percent?"
Harrison responded that it
would put the commercial
and industrial rates more in
line with the fire fees, as well
as neighboring communities
rates.
"I don't think we should
start comparing the fire de-
partment to the police de-
partment," said council
member Henry Ennis.
"It's not fair to either the
fire or police departments to
compare them," said
Adkinson.
The council decided to ask
the city attorney to draft a
new ordinance, separating
fire and police impact, fees, so
that the fire impact fees can
be adopted at the next regu-
lar meeting on July 23.
For now, discussion will
continue on the police impact
fees.
"I don't think," said
Harrison, "that this decision
is taking the impact fee from
this study or none at all."

Editor'sComment "Copyrighted Material

Available from Commercial News Providers"


Over the coming days, Walton County residents are
going to find out what happens when the rubber meets
the road.
In its infinite wisdom, the Florida Legislature en-
acted a property tax reduction plan of which no one
seems particularly proud. Panhandle state House rep-
resentatives Marti Coley and Don Brown speak of it
in decidedly lukewarm tones. Both are quick to ac-
knowledge the bill's flaws. They say things like "it was
a step in the right direction" and "it's absolutely not a
perfect plan," but "it was the best we could do."
What comments like that usually mean is 'this is a
poor piece of legislation, but it's all we're going to do,
so you're stuck with it from now on try to learn to
like it!"
The state decided to trim the county and city bud-
gets, excluding school districts, by reducing the amount
the county could receive from local property taxes. That
means less money coming in to pay for services. That
means county and municipal governments must take
out their carving knives and start trimming budgets.
Well, that's never a bad idea. There's plenty of money
that seems to go out with no discernible return. There
are certainly some county departments and local agen-
cies that could do with some trimming. Of course, it's
the commissioners who must decide what gets
trimmed and by how much. I expect that there will be
plenty of people who will think that their favorite ser-
vices, projects or organizations should be funded the
same as always. I also predict there'll be a lot of un-
happy people.
However, that shouldn't be the end of the story.
Young House Speaker Marco Rubio said that those
warnings about cuts in county services by local offi-
cials were "disingenuous" and misleading. Speaker-
designate Ray Sansom actually had the temerity to
say that counties and cities hadn't done their part and
"the Legislature has to step in and do it for them."
As a former Okaloosa County commissioner, Sansom
should know better. Or maybe he meant that all his
former, fellow commissioners had missed the boat and
only he had done it right. Hmm:
Fine. The state has now done something to limit
the money that county government gets from you.
That's excellent. Now it's time for the state to do ex-
actly the same thing. It's time they were as quick to
limit their own budgets and take less from you the
same as they decided city and county governments
should do.
Can anyone stand up with a straight face and say
that there's no waste in state government, no pork, no
fat, no frills?
Exactly. If Rubio and Sansom want to really impress
us, they will follow their own strong, moral example
and reduce the amount of taxes they receive, too. Af-
ter all, between income tax, property tax, business tax,
sales tax, utility tax and all the other slices out of your
pocket, most Americans already give the government
at least half of what they make. It's like the "Death of
a Thousand Cuts." We are taxed to death...slowly.
While I probably won't like all the ways the com-
missioners will cut the budget, I know that cuts must
come if I am to pay them less in taxes. I want to pay
less in county taxes, so I will accept the cuts.
It's now the state's turn and I expect Reps. Rubio
and Sansom to lead the charge to do so. If they don't,.
then all of this has been nothing but meaningless talk
and political gamesmanship, paper-reform with no
thought of real consequences. I hope this is not just
slick maneuvering by a couple of guys who want to
live in the governor's mansion. However, we should
remember that this is politics Florida polities.
Who are you going to put your money on?

Editor,
Both of our illustrious senators voted to support the Bush,
Kennedy, McConnel, et al. bill to allow illegal aliens already
in the country to become citizens and promote the stampede
across the border. Both senators, Martinez, a Republican, and
Nelson, a Democrat, have considerable time remaining in.
their terms, so it will be awhile before we can vote on either.
But don't forget when they come up for reelection. They are
betting you will.
These senators were (are) in the pockets of businesses, big
and small builders, hotels and motels to name a few. They
are without a care for the social, financial, and political ef-
fects on today's working people, sometimes called the middle
class.
Martinez was elected last time around and since Senate
terms are six years, he has about four years left. Why Nelson
keeps getting reelected is beyond me. He makes noises about
drilling in the Gulf and lately about passports, but he has a
decidedly liberal leaning.
The senators who stood their ground, such as Vitter of Loui-
siana and Sessions of Alabama, to name only two, deserve
vast amounts of credit for speaking out about the faults of
this bill and against Bush, Kennedy, Martinez, Nelson, who
pushed for passage.
What the Conservatives wanted was a secure border first,
and when that is finished, other aspects could be considered.
They were dead set against this willy-nilly bill so potentially
harmful to large segments of Americans..: .. .

Editor:
This letter is addressed to Mayor Marse and the people of
Freeport. I am requesting that Mayor Marse and the kind-
hearted people of Freeport will donate their palm trees to,
the city of DeFuniak Springs. We have an area in dire need
of upgrading. The island east and west at the intersection of
U.S. 90 west and U.S. 331 north is the west and north en-
trance into DeFuniak Springs proper. More important is that
it is the entrance to the DeFuniak Springs City Airport. The
planting of palm trees and shrubs equal to the U.S. 331 south,
entrance from 1-10 and south U.S. 331 would create a whole-
some greeting. The airport is a very important asset to our
city. The beautification of the east and west islands on U.S.
90 west shows we are proud of our city. We will be grateful
for your assistance in donating your palm trees to DeFuniak
Springs.

Editor,
I would like to take this time to express my thanks to sev-
eral individuals who have had an enormous impact on my
reign as Miss DeFuniak Springs.
Mr. Sonny Yates has been a great friend and supporter. Art
and Marty at WZEP have been a blast, and me and Sassy,
"Miss Walton County," have had a great time getting to know
the wonderful people here in our hometown.
There have been numerous people to thank along our road
to "Peanut." The businesses of Walton County, the Chamber
of Commerce, and most of all, the wonderful people that live
here in our great community.
As you see us about, we will greet you with a great smile
and a handshake and bend your ears about our great city
and wonderful beaches. Once again, thank-you, everyone, for
your support and well-wishes on our road to Peanut.

Miss DeFuniak Springs
Devin Jones

Editor,
I've recently turned a page in my book and begun a new
chapter in my life. I wanted to share some thoughts and feel-
ings for those who have had a wonderful influence in my life,
but may have been forgotten along the way due to being taken
for granted.
I recently resigned from my job of almost 10 years, due to
health reasons. I will truly miss some of the finest people
anywhere. These folks work day and night around the clock
and are very often missing most of their children's activities.
These individuals are very often missing ballgames, field
trips, family reunions, and much needed time with their
spouses, for the good of the public's safety.
I am referring to the Florida state corrections officers. The
general public may not realize as they tuck their children in
at night that their safety and welfare are partly due to the
long hours and dedication the correctional family is devot-
ing to the public safety. When I say correctional family, that
is just what they are. This group of individuals are mothers,
fathers, sisters, brothers, cousins, grandparents, but most of
all, they are comrades with one goal in mind, to work to-
gether for the welfare of our society.
With dedication and professionalism, they help keep the
public safe and walk the toughest beat in society.
So, at night when you are tucking in your kids and putting
out the cat for the night, stop and say a little prayer for all
our public safety workers and all law enforcement from the
cities, counties, and state departments the firefighter that
keeps your home and property from burning down, the of-
ficer that keeps the streets quiet at night, and the correc-
tions officer that keeps the inmates behind the walls of their
institution.
As I turn that page in my book, I will always think of my
fellow officers at Walton Correctional. I will think of them as
I go to sleep at night, and say a prayer of thanks for them, as
I put out my cat.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, JULY 12, 2007


CENTER FROM FRONT


WC public works crew update


in the city. The surcharge is
required by the state and is
currently being collected by
the county. However, the
funds must be requested
from the county in order to
be handed over to the city.
The surcharge would go to a
fund for police training.
According to Adkinson, at
one time, this money was be-
ing collected was going to the
Walton County Sheriff's Of-
fice, per a county ordinance
allowing them to use the
money if the city does not re-
quest it.
The first reading was
adopted 5-0 and will be ad-
vertised for a second reading
and full adoption at the next
meeting.
In other council news:
Greg Scoville updated the
council on the city planning
board's consideration of the
proposed plat review for the
County Ridge Subdivision, to
be located off of Juniper Lake
Road. The review was contin-
ued until the planning
board's next meeting in Au-
gust.
Scoville also brought to
the council a new city limit
legal description and map
currently being worked on by
city staff. No action was nec-
essary as some work is still
required before adopting the
description and map.
The proposed airport zon-
ing ordinance was brought to
the council's attention for
consideration. It is still in de-
velopment, and no action was
taken, but a copy of the cur-
rent proposal was given to
the council for review.
Mayor Carpenter pro-
claimed July 12 and 13 Wal-
ton County Chamber of Com-
merce Member Appreciation
Days.
By unanimous approval,
DFSCC authorized a study to
be conducted by the Govern-
ment Services Group, Inc. in
regards to transportation im-
pact fees.
The abandonment of a
four feet by 30 feet portion of
the right of way on 8th
Street, where a porch cur-
rently occupies this space,
was approved. The building
and roads were laid out prior
to adequate surveying mea-
sures in the 1940s. If the
house is destroyed, the right
of way would revert to the
city.
Peter Green from URS up-
dated the council on progress
at the municipal airport.
Runway rehabilitation of the
paved runway is soon to be-
gin, and will require a shut-
down of the runway for 4-6
weeks.
"There's no good time to do
this," said City Manager Kim
Kirby. However, the runway
is in such a condition as the
shutdown and repaving is
necessary.
DFSCC approved a reduc-
tion in administrative fees
from 10 to five percent in the
renewal of the right-of-way
maintenance agreement
with Walton County ARC.
This will help offset the cut


in the amount that Florida
Department of Transporta-
tion is paying the city for the
maintenance. This was ap-
proved 5-0.
An agreement with VMS
Maintenance Systems, Inc.
for right-of-ways south of In-
terstate 10 was also ap-
proved 5-0.
Unanimous approval went
to the renewal of the agree-
ment with Cook Creek
Farms for sludge removal in
the city. Approved 5-0 the ap-
pointment of Jacob Williams
to the new Recreation Advi-
sory Committee by Council-
man James Coffield.
Agreed to a schedule for
the upcoming budget work-
shops, the first of which will
be on August 7.
In citizen's comments,
Chris MItchell, president of
the Florida Chautauqua
Center, Inc., brought to the
council's attention what he
believes is a misrepresenta-
tion by another organization
claiming to be theirs, saying
the city and other businesses
were "sponsors" of their or-
ganization.
The council's next regular
meeting is scheduled for July
23 at 7 p.m.

And I thought it was

just about the money.

When I came to BankTrust wanting to open
a savings account for my child,
I was surprised to find a group of people
who care about me and my family.
I wasn't just a number to them. I was treated as an individual.
That's the difference with community banking.
That's the strength of BankTrust.

Sheriff's Office (WCSO) re-
cently investigated a fraud
case involving a company
named "World Financial So-
lutions," claiming to be in
Kentucky. The investigation
revealed that this company
is not a legitimate company,
nor does it operate out of
Kentucky. They are, or were,
located in Canada and are


currently under investiga-
tion by Canadian
authorities. The public is ad-
vised not to acknowledge any
correspondence, whether by
telephone, email, or postal
mail, of any kind from this
company.
World Financial Solutions
contacts potential victims
and informs them of a poten-
tial bill consolidation


loan. The company obtains
customer information from
various sources, including
online applications to other
entities completed by their
potential victims. The com-
pany goes through the pro-
cess of offering a loan and in-
structs the victim to submit
information such as a can-
celed check, driver's license
number, and upfront cash


payments via Western Union
to "cover insurance premi-
ums that will be reimbursed
later." The "loan" is never
deposited into the victim's
checking account and the "in-
surance premium" is never
returned.
One victim researched the
organization online to find
that "World Financial" is a le-
gitimate financial organiza-


tion with an office in Ken-
tucky but which operates
worldwide. After the funds
were not deposited, the vic-
tim researched the organiza-
tion again under the name
she was given, "World Finan-
cial Solutions." She discov-
ered that there have been nu-
merous postings about this
company on
RipOffReport.com and im-


mediately contacted the
sheriff's office.
WCSO asks that everyone
take all necessary precau-
tions when trying to obtain
a loan. Contact local banks
and ask for recommenda-
tions of legitimate lenders. If
a company seems not to be
legitimate, or if something is
just not right, don't go
through with it.

A wet Independence


Day celebration


By LAKEN DAVIS
At 3 p.m. on Wednesday,
July 4, the 16th annual De-
Funiak Springs Business
and Professional Association
(DBPA) Independence Day
celebration began at the De-
Funiak Springs Lakeyard.
This year's celebration was
dedicated to the memory of
Jim McCormick, a well-
known DeFuniak Springs
businessman and pastor.
Though rain clouds loomed,
many community members
made it out for watermelon
and children's activities,
which included a dunking
booth and an air-filled slide.
With the parade, which
started at 5 p.m., came the
rain. However, with i" harsh
wind or lightning, the festivi-
ties continued. Those on
floats covered themselves

waited for candy splashed in

Opening ceremonies for
the evening were at 6 p.m.,
followed by a fly-over of Eg-

A performance by country-
music singer Shane Owens
began around 7 p.m. A large
crowd gathered at the am-

along and allowing them to

end, the crowd was nearly on
stage. Afterwards, Owens
signed autographs and took
photos with fans.
A fireworks show over
Lake DeFuniak concluded
the evening. The show had
the largest supply of fire-

What can you do


about osteoarthritis?


Every year, an estimated 2
million Americans undergo
arthroscopy on their knees,
shoulders, and on many
other joints. The results,
however, depend to a great
extent on the patient's obser-
vance of certain tips and
guidelines, both before and
after surgery. .But what


should a person know about
arthroscopy, and how can he
or she prepare for this impor-
tant operation? The Ameri-
can Arthritis Society has
compiled some useful and
practical tips for self-care,
and made them available on
the society's website. Devel-
oped with the help of some


of the world's leading
arthroscopy specialists, each
tip is easy to follow and can
be helpful in preparing for
your operation. These and
many more suggestions re-
garding osteoarthritis can be
viewed online at
www.americanarthritis.org.

Seaside Repertory Theatre's 'Beauty


and the Beast' moves to WaterColor


The Seaside Repertory
Theatre, Northwest
Florida's premier pro-
fessional theatre com-
pany, made the planned
relocation of its
children's play, "Beauty
and the Beast" by Julia
Corner, to WaterColor
on July 2.

This classical version
of the popular children's
story opened on May 21
in Seaside playing to
hundreds of families,
and due to a joint spon-
sorship from the St. Joe
Company and the Mer-
chants of Seaside,


"Beauty and the Beast"
will now run in
WaterColor's Marina
Park Amphitheatre
each Monday at 7:30
p.m. through Aug. 6.
Admission is free, and
seating is on the lawn.
Families should bring
blankets, beach or lawn
chairs and picnics.
For more information,
call the Rep box office at
(850) 231-0733.

Beauty and the Beast
is the first summer fam-
ily show to be performed
in more than one venue,
running six weeks in


Seaside and then six
weeks in WaterColor.
Rep Artistic Director
Craige Hoover explains
that splitting the pro-
duction ...breathes
new life into the show
after six weeks and help
establish the two neigh-
boring developments as
one cultural commu-
nity."
In 2008, the Rep will
add a second family-ori-
ented production to its
weekly summer lineup,
presenting two distinct
productions in Seaside
and WaterColor on dif-
ferent nightts.


"The immense popu-
larity of our summer
family programming
dictated that we ex-
pand, and both
WaterColor and the
Merchants of Seaside
have been generous
enough to facilitate that
expansion," added
Hoover. "We look for-
ward to the exciting
challenges and opportu-
nities created by this
partnership."
The Rep has also
joined forces with St.
Joe's Camp WaterColor
to offer week-long
camps for children and


teens. Camp Showtime,
the theatre's drama
camp for kids ages 6-12,
will teach children
about the art of theatre
as they spend one week
staging a production
written and starring the
campers.
The Teen Acting for
the Camera Workshops
will let teens ages 12-16
learn what it takes to
work in front of a cam-
era with acting and au-
dition techniques. The
details are being final-
ized, so parents are
asked to monitor the
newspaper and


www.seasiderep.org for
more information.
The Seaside Repertory
Theatre is a non-profit
theatre company dedi-
cated to producing high-
quality professional the-
atre, inspiring creative
diversity and talent de-
velopment, and promot-
ing the living arts in
Walton County and all
of Northwest Florida.

gramming, visit

celebrate 50
years of love
On May 26, 2007, Jimmie
and Doris Davidson cel-
ebrated 50 years of love, good
times, bad times, laughter
and practical jokes.
Over 50 family and friends
were in attendance at an out-
door party, catered and deco-
rated by their children.
Daughter Danita Alvarado
traveled farthest, from New
Jersey, to attend and assist
with the party.
While everyone enjoyed
their meal, 1957's music
played. Cards were passed
out as guests arrived to write
messages, prayers, and
memories about the couple.
These remembrances were
read; some bringing tears,
others laughter.
Jimmie and Doris would
like to thank everyone who
called, attended, sent gifts
and cards.

is almost a lost book, in
that many fail to use it.
Yet, Christ is the Lamb of
God.
He is the Lamb of God
because he established the
church. Christ said that
He would build his church


(Matthew 16:18). He loved the
church and gave himself for
it. He guides his church,
speaking to seven of them in
different locations. Each of his
messages will fit some church
today.
Christ the Lamb is worthy
because he determines his-
tory. He alone is worthy, not
Domitian, not .Hitler, not
Khomeini. John uses basic
things such as numbers, col-
ors, and animals to express
the message, "Worthy is the
Lamb."


Christ is worthy because
he triumphs over all. Popu-
lar shows on television speak
of "The Last Battle," as if
wondering who will win.
Christians know who will
win when they read the last
book of the Bible. There will
be conflict, to be sure, but
Christ is the victor, and be-
lievers are on his side.
Christ is worthy because
he reigns in heaven (Revela-
tion 21-22). John gives more
attention to the destiny of
the saved in contrast to the


destiny of the lost. Our un-
broken fellowship, perfect in
every way, is with the Father,
Son, and Holy Spirit. We will
not have any more tears
there. All that is negative
and hurtful there will cease.


Jesus Christ, the Lamb, is
forever worthy. We may not
understand every detail of
Revelation, yet we can be-
lieve what it proclaims. Our
Lord is King of kings and
Lord of lords.


Worthy is the Lamb

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD THURSDAY, JULY 12, 2007

Heritage Museum to host private collection


On Sept. 6 at noon, the
Heritage Museum of North-
west Florida will host
Raymon Melvin of Holley,
a fourth generation Pan-
handle resident.
Melvin will lead an infor-
mal discussion on his
family's experience in the
lumber and turpentine in-
dustry.
Melvin will display 19th
and early 20th century tools
of the trade from his vast
collection as well as his scale
turpentine still model.
Melvin has been collecting
the remnants of this once-
thriving industry for over 40
years and has amassed a col-
lection of the industry tools


and their patents. He will
share his extensive knowl-
edge of how these obsolete
tools were made and used in
the pine forests in North-
west Florida. Listeners will
be intrigued by his descrip-
tions and observers will
wonder at the ingenuity of
the men who invented,
made and used these larger
than life tools.
"Mr. Melvin's historic col-
lection is extremely valu-
able in terms of its scope and
detail," said Heritage Mu-
seum Director Michelle
Severino.
"The collection he has
amassed, combined with his
extensive knowledge, puts


us in touch with the industry
that dominated our area's
economy a century ago."
"Ray Melvin has the finest
and most extensive collection
of northwest Florida, 1800-
1900s lumber/turpentine ar-
tifacts I have ever seen. The
man himself is an articulate
historical expert on the arti-
facts and the lumber indus-
try of those long ago times,"
said Clay McCutchan, histo-
rian, Air Armament Center,
Eglin Air Force Base, Florida.
Relive history, experience
some "local color," and go back
to the time when pine was the
cash crop of Northwest
Florida as Melvin brings the
turpentine industry to life


with accounts of tools, toil
and turpentine.
Brown-bag lunches are
encouraged. Seating is limi-
ted and pre-registration is
required. Call (850) 678-2615
to reserve a space or for more
information.
The Heritage Museum of
Northwest Florida is located
at 115 Westview Avenue in
historic Valparaiso.
The Heritage Museum has
been preserving and promot-
ing the rich history of the
Panhandle for over 35 years.

Celebration of One Year in Heaven
We little knew that morning that God was going to call
your name. No fare well words were spoken, no time to say
good-bye. You were gone before we knew it, and only God
knows why. They say there is a reason, they say that time
will heal. But neither time nor reason will change the way
S we feel. For no one knows the heartache that lies behind
- our smiles. No one knows how many times we have broken
down and cried. We want to tell you something, so there
won't be any doubt. You're so wonderful to think of but so
hard to be without. We cannot bring the old days back,
when we were all together. The family chain is broken now,
but memories live forever.
Forever in our hearts,
Love Mom, Dad, Granny, and Uncle Dale

Local youth travel to



Nashville for crusade


Local youth joined the re-
ligious revival at L.P. Field in
Nashville, TN. on July 7, from
10 a.m. until 10 p.m. They
did exactly what they went
to do, "repent and call out to
God."
Even in the heat the event
drew one of the largest
crowds in the history of the
stadium. Country music su-
perstar Ricky Skaggs helped
kick off "The Call" by blow-
ing a shofar, an ancient Jew-
ish custom that signifies the
start of an important cer-
emony or a call to battle. Ac-
cording to the over 100,000
in attendance, it did both.
Founder Lou Engle said,
"We've come here with a faith
that God can turn a nation
and that a mighty shift can
take place here today."
There were numerous vol-
unteer "stars," Christian
singers and bands. Ameri-
cans from every nationality
gathered from all over the
country to fast and pray for
America.
"It was encouraging for our
youth because sometimes

THE
SOWER


Before she was two years
old, an illness destroyed her
sight and hearing. Helen
Keller was thus unable to
learn to speak.
But she overcame blindness
and deafness by learning to
read and write in Braille.
Then she leaned to talk.
One night she was asked, If
you could have one wish
granted, what would it be?
Hearing? Sight? Eloquence?
She answered, World
peace. We have many
peace breakers, but few
peace makers. But the Bible
says, Blessed are the
peace makers. Oh, that we
all might receive the Prince
of Peace. When we re at
peace with God, we II be at
peace with self and man.

By CHUCK HINSON
With team after team
crumbling under the pres-
sure and not able to maintain
; a steady rythym, Jamie
'; McMurray came up big on
Saturday in Daytona to snap
his 166-race losing streak
and win the Pepsi 400 in
Daytona Beach.
Greg Biffle, Carl Edwards
and Matt Kenseth looked as


double in the sixth while
driving in three runs. Jarred
Nelson went 1-for-3 with a
monster three-run homer in
the second inning. The DFS
Red Sox scored ten of their
11 runs in the second inning.
Game three saw the DFS
Red Sox knock off the Destin
Dawgs 8-5. This game was a
close contest as Jarred
Nelson pitched eight strong
innings, allowing only eight
hits with 12 strikeouts while
allowing six walks. Kyle
Whigham went 3-for-5 with
two singles and a double.
Michael Bakalo went 1-for-5
with a two-run homer and
three RBIs. Kendal May
went 1-for-4 while driving in
two runs with a double.


The fourth game of the
tournament saw the DFS
Red Sox shutout the Destin
Dawgs 3-0 in a game short-
ened by rain in the top of the
second inning.
Coach Nick Rushing ac-
cepted the championship tro-
phy .along with the tourna-
ment MVP Todd Rushing as
the DFS Red Sox claimed the
tourney title. The second
place trophy went to the
Destin Dawgs with honor-
able mention going to the
Ebro Redheads.
The next game will be on
July 14th as the PDL Tigers
take on the Caryville Chiefs
at 3 p.m. at Douglas Cross-
roads Park. Everyone is wel-
come to attend.


nger Federer


Federer and No. 2-seed
Rafael Nadal fought it out in
a five-set final match. The fi-
nal match would be the
Swedish tennis star's
hardest-fought battle of the
tournament and one of the
hardest in his career.
All the 'elements were
present to make this one of
the most intense and crowd-
pleasing games in many
years.


No. 1 Federer beat the
three-time French Open win-
ner, No. 2 Nadal, 7-6 (7), 4-6,
7-6 (3), 2-6, 6-2. It would be
Federer's 54th straight vic-
tory on grass and overall his
11th Grand Slam title.
The victory now ties
Federer with Bjorn Borg on
both counts. His idol and big-
gest fan was there waiting to
greet him off court just after

one of seven race tracks in
the south east affiliated with
StormPay.com, enabling
drivers to compete for both
track and regional champi-
onships. Southern Raceway's
drivers will be eligible for the
regional points champion-
ship for the remainder of the
2007 racing season, which
culminates in mid-Novem-
ber.
Of the decision to join with
StormPay.com, Southern
Raceway's owner Mike
Arnold said, "it is a positive
thing for our track, our com-
petitors, and our fans."
Arnold said that he hoped
the prospect of a regional
points fund would put more


spectators in the stands, as
well as cars on the track. As-
is, the crate engine late
model class' Saturday fea-
ture winner is payed $850.
Recently, Milton's "Finest
Dirt Track in the South" has
become a nexus of motor-
sports interest in the area,
especially with the recent
StormPay.com deal. In fact,
four of the top ten drivers in
StormPay.com's Weekly Rac-
ing Series South Region race
primarily at Southern Race-
way on Saturday nights. The
south region's points leader,
Frank Wilson, driver of the,
no. 72 car, said that the rela-
tionship between Southern

was "a positive one" for his
racing program. "I really like
this series," Wilson said.
"Now I can race for this
championship in my home-
town." At the time of print-
ing, Wilson still ranks in first
place, after two second-place
finishes last weekend, being
beat out for first place at
Southern Raceway by the no.
11 car of Mark Clifton on Sat-
urday night. Wilson has ac-
crued 692 points based on his
16 best finishes in 26 starts.
Other top StormPay.com
drivers hailing from Milton
are second-place Bobby
Morrison, who currently has
614 points, and third-place
Scott Sessions with 564


points. Taylor Jarvis moved
up a place after the
weekend's facing. Joshua
and Jonathan Joiner, and
Jesse Barnhill are also area
drivers who are in contention
for the StormPay.com South
Region points championship.
The regional driver's
points fund is not the extent
of StormPay's plans for
Milton, said Dirt Late Model
Series president of Opera-
tions and Communications
Roby Helm. "We're currently
in negotiations (with Arnold)
to bring a StormPay.com Na-
tional Touring event to
Southern Raceway this fall,"
he said. "The South Region
is the fastest-growing region


for the the StormPay.com
Weekly Racing Series," Helm
explained. "Six of the seven
tracks are new to the series
for 2007," he added.
'The foundation of the
StormPay.com Dirt Late
Model Series is the recent
development of the Crate
Engine class, where race cars
are powered by one of two dif-
ferent General Motors en-
gines available for order at
any GM parts counter. The
engines are economically
priced at this level of compe-
tition, eliminating the need
for expensive modification
and therefore enable a high
degree of parity between
competitors.

Boyd honored by Florida


Wildlife Federation


At the Florida Wildlife
Federation's 70th Annual
conservation Awards Ban-
quet, to be held June 23, 2007
in Indian Rocks Beach, FL.,
an outstanding Florida con-
servationist will be recog-
nized for their work in 2007.
For his laudable efforts to
save the Apalachicola River,
the Florida Wildlife Federa-
tion has awarded Represen-
tative Allen Boyd with the
Special River Advocate of the
Year Award for 2007.
"I am so honored to receive
the Special River Advocate of
the Year Award from the
Florida Wildlife Federation,"
said Congressman Boyd.
"Since I've been in Congress,
I have been working to end
dredging along the Apalachi-
cola River, and the Florida
Wildlife Federation has been
a tireless ally and advocate
in this effort. I appreciate all
that the Florida Wildlife Fed-
eration does for our great
state, and I look forward to
working with them in the
future so that we can end the
dredging of the Apalachicola
River permanently and begin
restoring the river to its
natural habitat and beauty."
Elected to U.S. House of
Representatives in 1996,
Allen Boyd represents the
largest geographical congres-
sional district in Florida.
Boyd has been a leading
proponent for the proper
management of.L the
Apalachicola River, which
bisects the Florida Pan-


handle. The headwaters of
the Apalachicola originate in
north Georgia as the Chatta-
hoochee river, which runs
through Atlanta, and as the
Flint River, just south of At-
lanta. Water use by this city
and by other interests down-
stream has led to years of liti-
gation and conflict over wa-
ter allocation. Adequate
clean water is especially
critical to sustain the
biodiversity of the Apalachi-
cola river floodplain and the
survival of the seafood indus-
try and Apalachicola Bay.
In addition to water alloca-
tion problems, the Apala-
chicola River has been
dredged in an effort to main-
tain a federally authorized
channel to facilitate the
movement of barge traffic.
Since 1957, dredging has cre-
ated huge sand piles and
caused the degradation of
floodplains to the detriment
of fish and wildlife-all for a
small number of commercial
barges. To stop the economi-
cally infeasible and environ-
mentally destructive dredg-
ing, Boyd used his position
to restrict funding for the
U.S. Army Corps of Engi-
neers (COE), which per-
formed the dredging. Not
only was the cessation of
dredging beneficial to the en-
vironment, but to the tax
payers as well. Boyd's action
has prevented dredging for
the past six years and aided
the state of Florida in its de-
nial of the COE permit.
Boyd continues to help pro-


NWFWMD to open

environmental

permitting offices


The Northwest Florida
Water Management District
is recruiting engineers, biolo-
gists and other employees for
a new environmental re-
source permitting (ERP) pro-
gram with offices in Talla-
hassee and Crestview. The
candidates to be selected, ap-
proximately 20 in all, will
help improve environmental
permitting across the Pan-
handle. During the first
phase of the program, the
District will implement
storm water permitting to
address water quality and
flooding from construction
and development.
"While interviews are well
underway for a number of
positions, we are still actively
seeking, engineers," said
Grady L. "Lee" Marchman,
chief of the District's Envi-
ronmental Resource Regula-
tion Bureau. "A year ago, the
Florida Legislature brought
Florida's ERP program to
northwest Florida. Already
in place at the other four
water management districts,
this program gives rule-mak-
ing authority to the Florida
Department of Environmen-


tal Protection (DEP) and di-
vides implementation be-
tween DEP and the District.
The District can, in turn,
implement rules to address
impacts across northwest
Florida."
Meanwhile, DEP will be
permitting projects that in-
volve wetlands or sovereign
submerged lands. In the sec-
ond phase, the District will
assume some wetlands per-
mitting functions.
The District's ERP pro-
gram has leased Suite. 2D at
2252 Killearn Center Boule-
vard, Tallahassee, as its
main office and 800 Hospital
Drive, Crestview, as its field
office. It is preparing the
Crestview office to house
both ERP staff, and staff
from the District's Pensacola
office.
Although the implementa-
tion date for permit applica-
tions is October 1, 2007, Dis-
trict staff will hold pre-appli-
cation conferences beginning
in July. Call 850-539-5999 or

Independence Day


parade at Seaside


a blast


By JEFFREY POV, 'ELL
Hundreds of peo ]ple, locals
and visitors alike, lined CR-
30A in Seaside las' t Wednes-
day for the annual L Indepen-
dence Day parade;. Children
of all ages were showered
with candy and b eads from
local dignitaries e ind wildly
decorated floats d luring the
festivities. Also on hand were
Miss Freeport, 1 Christina
Copland, and Mi ss Walton
County, Sassy Bo ,art.
Several emeri agency ve-
hicles, including firetrucks
and a Walton' County
Sheriff's deputy ; riding his
Harley Davidso n wowed
spectators. A luck; y few were
able to sound th( deputy's
siren.
Local artist Cai 'a Roy has
been a "best float' judge for


the parade contest since
2003. Part of the competition
is based on a contestant's
ability to persuade the
judge's vote. "Being a judge
is great," Roy said. "The
bribes are outstanding, ap-
preciated and encouraged."
Naturalized American
citizen Dusan Petirac, along
with his family, enjoyed the
day's festivities but showed
concern that the meaning of
the day was lost on some.
Dusan has seen the price of
freedom in his native coun-
try of Slovenija. "We need to
remember that this is a cel-
ebration of our independence
as Americans," he said.
"People forget the impor-
tance of the day."

County eyes variance

procedure change


By DOTTY NIST .
The Scenic Cori idor De-
sign Review Boarni is cur-
rently tasked by cou paty code
with considering vi ariances
from the Scenic Corridor
Standards for architecture,
landscaping, site w ork and
signage that apply 'to appli-
cations for develop ment on
U.S. 98 and U.S. 3; 31 south
of the bay.
This will change if an or-
dinance now being consid-
ered by Walton Cour ity is ap-
proved.
Scheduled for di scussion
and a recommend; ation by
the Walton County ] Planning
Commission on Jul y 12, the
ordinance would instead
have the Walton Coi mty Zon-


ing Board of Adjustments
(ZBA) responsible for approv-
ing or denying variances
from the Scenic Corridor
Standards. In fact, the ordi-
nance would require all ap-
plications for variances from
county code to be decided by
the ZBA.
Tim Brown, county plan-
ner, furnished the members
of the Design Review Board
(DRB) with a draft copy of
the ordinance on July 5.
Brown explained that county
legal counsel believes it to be
a conflict for the DRB mem-
bers to be responsible for con-
sidering variances for appli-
cations that they themselves
had previously reviewed and

By DOTTY NIST
Despite continuing contro-
versy, Walton County com-
missioners voted quickly on
July 10 to proceed with park-
ing improvements along a
700-foot-long section of the
county right-of-way on Sce-
nic Gulf Drive in Miramar
Beach.
This beachfront section,
located across from Seascape
Resort and east of the
Whale's Tail eatery, has been
for many years a place where
vehicles crowd in to park
along the road and the pub-
lic frequents the beach. The
situation is often chaotic and
unsafe during the beach sea-
son, with vehicles pulling in
and out of traffic and pedes-
trians doing their best to suc-
cessfully cross the road.
The parking improve-
ments have been in the
county budget for the past
two years as part of phase
three of the Scenic Gulf Drive
Beautification Project.
On June 11, the Walton.
County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC) looked
at four possible options for
the improvements and nar-
rowed their selections down


to the two least expensive.
About 150 Scenic Gulf Drive
residents and property own-
ers showed up to oppose the
plans on that evening, also
asking for parking to be
eliminated along the beach
section and a fence to be put
up to keep beachgoers away.
Questions had been raised
regarding the beach section,
whether it was public or pri-
vate. Majestic Sun
homeowners said they paid
a fee for use of the Seascape
Beach and had been told it
was a private area.
On July 10, interim
county attorney Mike Burke
reported that Seascape Gen-
eral Manager Jay Nettles
had indicated that the gen-
eral public has consistently
been allowed to use the beach
property.
Attorney Dana Matthews,
representing Seascape, Inc.,
also stated that Seascape
supports the county parking
improvement plans.
Several citizens also spoke
up in favor of the parking
improvements at the July 10
commission meeting.
Representatives of Majes-
tic Sun condominiums pre-


sented a compromise that
they called a "win-win,"
which called for parallel
parking along that section,
but none in front of Majestic
Sun.
On a motion by Cindy
Meadows, the commission
voted unanimously to pro-
ceed with one of the previ-
ously-viewed options. The
$900,000 plan provides for
an 107-space, all-parallel-
parking scheme with spaces
all along, the section. Each
parking space is to be at least
10 feet wide by 25 feet long,
with handicapped spaces
even larger. An aisle is to be
provided as a safety zone to
separate parking spaces
from road traffic. The plan
also includes a pedestrian
boardwalk on the south side
of the road and dune walk-
overs leading to the beach.
One resident also asked
the commissioners to desig-
nate a school bus stop along
the road section. Meadows'
motion included a directive
for staff to look into provid-
ing the bus stop either as
part of the improvements-
or in the vicinity if judged a
safer option.


CHAIRS, AWNINGS, and other items left on the beach at night can pose a safety hazard
for humans and animals. Walton County is initiating a coordinated effort to make sure the
beach is free of these obstructions during the evening hours.


Items left on beach to be removed


By DOTTY NIST
"Remove it or lose it," is
now the rule in the evening
on Walton County beaches.
To alleviate what has been
identified as "a severe prob-
lem," Walton County has ini-
tiated a coordinated ap-
proach to have beaches clear
of clutter in the evenings.
The clutter of chairs, aw-
nings, umbrellas, and other
items on the beach has long
been a complaint of South
Walton Turtle Watch volun-
teers.
Federally-protected na-
tive sea turtles come onto the
beach during their spring
and fall nesting season, and
their reproduction can be
hampered by obstacles left
on the beach in the evening.


Human beachgoers can also
run into or trip over these
obstacles as they walk on the
beach at night.
On June 28, Pat
Blackshear, county planning
and development services di-
rector, announced a coopera-
tive effort between the
county, the tourism council,
and the sheriff's office to ad-
dress the problem.
Blackshear explained that
items left on the beach would
be tagged and then removed
after 24 hours if not taken off
the beach by their owners.
The policy applies both to pri-
vate individuals and beach
vendors, who are being noti-
fied by mail.
Walton County Sheriff's
Office and Walton County
Code Enforcement personnel


will share patrol and tagging
duties. South Walton Tourist
Development Council (TDC)
personnel will pick up tagged
items once the 24-hour pe-
riod has elapsed, and owners
will forfeit items that are
picked up.
TDC Executive Director
Kriss Titus commented that,
while Walton County's
beaches have been honored
by the Clean Beaches Coun-
cil, she believes that the TDC
has not been getting the mes-
sage out about the impor-
tance of an uncluttered
beach.
She said the TDC plans a
"remove it or lose it" market-
ing campaign and will post
information on its web page
urging visitors to comply.

WCSO answers FAQs


about beaches


The Walton County
Sheriff's Office (WCSO) has
prepared the following re-
sponses to a list of frequently
asked questions about pub-
lic and private beaches.

Q: We were enjoying
the beach when we were
asked to move because we
were on private property.
Isn't the beach public?
A: The county maintains
six regional beach accesses
with parking and restrooms
that are available to the pub-
lic. Many of the county's
beaches are private due to
the way some of the area's
properties were originally
deeded and beachgoers who
set up tents and chairs in
these areas may be asked to
move.
Q: Where can the pub-
lic have beach set ups?
A: Visitors are welcome to
have beach set ups at any of


the area's public beach ac-
cesses, including regional
beach accesses with parking
and restrooms include
Miramar Beach, Dune Allen,
Ed Walline, Gulfview
Heights, Santa Clara and In-
let Beach. Parking is also
available at Beach High-
lands, Blue Mountain,
Grayton Dunes, Van Ness
Butler Jr. and San Juan.
Q: There is a beach ac-
cess at the end of the
street where our rental
unit is located, can we
have beach set ups there?
A: Most public beach ac-
cesses are nestled between
private properties.
Beachgoers should stay
within the easement of the
dune walkover to set up on
the dry beach. Along CR-30A,
beachgoers who wish have
beach set ups outside of these
areas must be on the wet
sand. In west Walton County


along Scenic Gulf Drive, a
large scale beach restoration
has created additional pub-
lic beach. An erosion control
line (ECL), a state-required
line that was established by
identifying the location of the
mean high water line during
the permitting process,
serves as the delineating line
between the lands owned by
the upland owner (north of
the line), and lands owned by
the state of Florida (south of
the line). Therefore, beach
set ups are permitted 35-40
feet from the water's edge on
beaches west of Four Mile
Village and along Scenic Gulf
Drive.
Q: Can the public walk
along the beaches?
A: Yes, the public is wel-
come to walk the beach.
Beach chair set ups and loi-
tering on private property is
illegal.


THE, DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, JULY 12, 2007

dI- si


ESTABLISHED BY county code, the Design Review Board (DRB) reviews applications
for development along the U.S. 98/U.S. 331 South Scenic Corridor for compliance with the
Scenic Corridor Standards. T he DB is also currently tasked with review and consider-
ation of variances from the con ridor standards, but there is now a proposal to change that.


CHANGE


voted upon.
DRB member and former
board chairman Bob Johnson
had not previously heard
about the proposed change
and had concerns. Johnson
was not sure whether the
ZBA members were familiar
with the Scenic Corridor
Standards.
Brown conceded that they
might not be, but explained
that a county staff report,
stating whether or not the
application would meet the
conditions for a variance,
would accompany the re-
quest.
DRB member Paul Smith
did not see a problem with
the current procedure. He ex-
plained that the initial DRB
review was to determine if
the application met the stan-
dards. If not, the variance re-
view was to determine if a
variance from the standards
was warranted.
Brown commented that
the decisions of all county
boards and staff may already

tivities. (Photo by Jeffrey

1 3e appealed to the ZBA.
Johnson brought up the
. ;ectiont of the Scenic Corridor
SEtandards that states, "The
decision of the (Design Re-
view) Board on a Variance
A application shall constitute
tl he final action of the County
g, overniment, and may there-
al After be appealed to the Cir-
cuit Court, in accordance
w: ith Florida law."
"Acciording to this, the de-
cisiion is appealed to circuit
co art," he said.
Johnison added that, up to
no w, negotiations between
the' DRB and applicants have
bee in successful with regard
to o obtaining compliance with
the corridor standards. He
feai "ed that this would not be
the case if applicants were
able i to go to the ZBA with a
gooc I chance of getting their
vari ances approved. He was
conc earned that the proposed
change might mean the de-
struc tion of the corridor stan-
dard! s.
"I, this a done deal?"


Johnson asked.
Brown said that after go-
ing before the planning com-
mission, the proposed ordi-
nance is scheduled for final
consideration by the Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners at their July
24 meeting.
In addition to the variance
procedure change, the ordi-
nance incorporates what
Brown called "a more scien-
tific basis" for building paint
colors on the corridor. The
standards already prohibit
fluorescent paint and dis-
courage "flashy or intrusive"
colors and building materi-
als.
The proposed ordinance
would set a range of approxi-

30A Radio: 100 watts


of scenic sound


30A RADIO STATION MANAGER LESLIE KOLOVICH
occupying the DJ's chair at office/studio in Seaside.


By BRUCE COLLIER
One of Walton County's
smallest radio stations has a
purpose far larger than its
100-watt size would indicate.
Since going on the air in
2003, 30A Radio (107.1 FM)
has grown from a closet-
sized operation into a full-
fledged "community radio,"
broadcasting around the
clock, with around 32 volun-
teer workers.
Station manager Leslie
Kolovich calls the station "a
really great opportunity" for
young people to learn broad-
casting by jumping in and
doing it. The station studio,
equipment, CD and tape li-
brary, and business office is
housed in a small office lo-
cated on the upper floor of
the Seaside Neighborhood
School (SNS)buildingin Sea-
side. The radio station was
born at the school.
According to Kolovich, a
group of SNS parents.got to-
gether and organized the ini-
t,ial,team, which included
Mike Turner and John
Rosenberg. Drawing upon
the professional expertise
and experience of these and
other volunteers, the 30A
Radio founders secured an
LPFM (low power) broad-
casting license. The station
has been on the air continu-
ously since 2003. Kolovich
joined in 2005. She was a
member of the SNS board,
and had a background in film
studies and an interest in
community radio.
She describes her intro-
duction to 30A Radio as a
"crash course." Kolovich and
associate Bobby Rains
learned the radio business by
doing it. They and a loyal and
persistent "handful of
people" have kept the station
alive and growing. The cur-
rent program grid features
nearly 30 live programs,
broadcasting from 6 a.m. to
midnight, interspersed with
music. Midnight to 6 a.m.
features prerecorded shows
and music, courtesy of "Otto,"
the station's sleepless auto-
mated system.
Among the programs are
Celtic Connection, the Island
Show, Jazz Flavors, Mo'
Betta Music, Talking with
Friends, Cqntemporary
Dance Party, Classic Blues
Breakdown, Reggae Riot and


Retro Revival. Rock 'n' Roll
and "beach music" form the
musical bedrock of the pro-
gram grid. The shows are
hosted by members of the
community, as well as stu-
dents from South Walton
High School (SWHS). A
weekly student program is
Voice of the Seahawks, a
three-hour broadcast
planned and presented by
SWHS students.
In addition to school-re-
lated items, the Seahawks
program has featured inter-
views with school officials
and administrators, includ-
ing Superintendent Carlene
Anderson. "They [the stu--
dents] do a great job," says
Kolovich. Coming this next
school term is a program
among the middle schools,
Radio 101, offering class and
studio time. Kolovich says
that a radio teacher has been
hired to teach this program.
The students are encour-
aged to develop their own

program ideas and to be cre-
ative, including making up
their own DJ names.
Kolovich tells of one student
who simply did not like any
kind of music. When
Kolovich mentioned sports,
he said "I love sports!"
Kolovich made him a sports-
caster.
30A Radio's offices are ap-
proximately 12 feet square in
size, with maximum use
made to accommodate equip-
ment and furniture. All
equipment was donated or
purchased by radio volun-
teers and community sup-
porters. Kolovich says her
husband is finishing some
new furniture, which will be
installed in a few weeks, and
which will give the station a
more "professional" look.
Future 30A Radio plans
include expanding commu-
nity involvement and educa-
tion, and a possible collabo-
ration with nearby Seaside
Repertory Theatre on "old
time radio," including live
plays and serial programs.
Community involvement and
input is encouraged.
The station's original an-
tenna was 45 feet tall and
was located near a cafe in
Seaside. Thanks to St. Joe
Arvida, 30A Radio's antenna
is now 100 feet tall, and is lo-
cated near the WaterColor
development area. Still, with
only 100 watts, 30A Radio's
broadcast range is limited. In
addition to all of CR-30A,
Kolovich estimates the signal
reaches about as far north as
Freeport High School.
"There's nothing to block
the signal," says Kolovich.

In addition to listening at
107.1 FM, 30A Radio can also
be heard online, at
www.30aradio.org. For more
information, or to volunteer
time or support, call 534-

The Walton County Tax-
payers' Association (WCTA)
held the second of two impor-
tant meeting to discuss the
steadily increasing tax rates
with property owners, this
time at the Coastal Branch
Library. The first meeting
was held in Mossy Head.
The special guests for the
evening where state Repre-
sentatives Don Brown and
Marti Coley, representing


Florida districts five and
seven, respectively. These
two districts are the second
and third largest in the state.
The purpose of the special
meeting was largely to do
with education on a proposed
state constitutional amend-
ment currently being put be-
fore the Florida legislatures.
Attendees at the meeting
filled out a local survey de-
ciding, as WCTA president
Bonnie McQuiston said,


"which services are essential
and which services are non-
essential."
McQuiston said her orga-
nization served as the "eyes
and ears of Walton County
taxpayers," and that, despite
the increase in state rev-
enues from $2 billion to $17
billion, "we have a govern-
ment we cannot afford," due
largely to what her organiza-
tion has termed as "misuses

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD THURSDAY, JULY 12, 2007


H o w
m uch
more can
America
take of re-
ality tele-
vision? Is
the latest
TV craze
still burn-


4,c-


ing hot on the tube,
or has will it become
a distant memory
like Camel cigarette
ads and Enron
infomercials?

Just when you thought
that reality television had
taken a break for the sum-
mer, here they come again
and this time with even less
of a purpose. It seems that
the hotter it is outside, the
more and more reality TV
gets viewers heated up in-
side.
Once again the FOX Net-
work has surprised and awed
as they delivered another
entertaining evening of food-
slinging, curse-word flying,
chef-crying drama from the
chopping blocks of Hell's
Kitchen. Chef Ramsey once
again brings his dry English
humor into the already bor-
ing subject of food prepara-
tion. .
< Ranting and raving, telling
the wannabe chefs that they
are worthless, throwing their
meals into the trash and then
"punishing them" by making
them eat pig liver and cow
tongues, he has just gotten ri-
diculous. The show even has
a parental guidance warning
due to the violence in the
kitchen and the language.
I have served my time in
restaurants when in college,
and I could promise that if I
ever had a chef or manager
speak to me the 'way these
wannabe chefs are spoken to,
there would be more than a
line for ticket purchases for


Art C(


i_ llt -l :_


the.show, I would be in a po-
lice line-up for murder by fry-
ing pan.
The show has even gone as
far as making the losing
team eat rotten meat and
scrub the floors with a tooth-
brush. The teams turn on
their own teammates in plots
to get them kicked off the
show.
Come on guys, do you want
to be a chef, or do you want a
job as a soap opera actor?
Once again FOX and its re-
ality television programming
has brought a whole new
meaning to having fifteen
minutes of fame.
Hey chef and wannabe
salad tossers, it's just food in
a fake restaurant, not key de-
cisions being made at the
United Nations.
Not all programming is
mindless and geared to homi-
cidal kitchen attendants.
There are shows like The
Simpsons, the longest run-
ning animated show in tele-
vision, and Family Guy.
These cartoons, though
geared to adults, have been
one of the best things to'
come from the FOX studios
and though they are ani-
mated, at least their actions
and idiotic plots are drawn
for intended laughs, not the
other way around.
American Idol is taking a
breather for another season
and another hopeful is on his
or her way to a career in mu-
sic. But don't get too comfort-
able idol winners, now shows
like America Has Talent and
America's Best Dancer will be
right on the cover pages of
the "National Enquirer,"


right beside
Paris Hilton's
latest brush
SS with the law
_ Ip S and Brittany
Spears latest
underwear es-
r L capade.
Reality
shows like
ABC's Ex-
t r e m e
Makeover:
Home Edition, still bring a
new and refreshing light on
reality television with their
message of giving, rebuilding
and revitalizing, families,
neighborhoods and cities. It
seems that I never turn that
show off without wiping
away a tear, or me chuckling
at the fact that I was crying,
because of a television show.
The summer television
.line-ups have much to offer
many. There are numerous
educational, inspirational
and entertaining programs
to watch and enjoy.
Though I Love Lucy,
Threes' Company and Happy
Days no longer grace the
evening hours of television
(except on Nick at Night)
there are programs that the
entire family can still watch
together.
So after the Hell's Kitchen
chef has screamed himself
mute, the bachelor has lied
to every single woman in the
country, after the nannies of
the world have solved every
family crises and every other
show about old rock n' roll'
icons has been cancelled,
turn to the classics. That is
the reason people began
watching television. For just
a brief moment, for just an
hour or two, we could escape
into another world and enjoy
being in the life of a fictional
character and enjoy all his
adventures.

If you want reality, no mat-
ter if you believe it or not,
then turn on the evening
news. That ought to give you
all the reality you can stom-
ach.
Happy watching!


IT'S ALL IN THE WRIST is what many parents were telling their children during the
water balloon toss this past Fourth of July at Rosemary Beach. More than 500 children and
adults participated in relays, sack races, three-legged races and hoola contest, while others
jumped in the moonwalks, got their face painted or tried their hand at several other activi-
ties throughout the morning's event.

agency's proposed action.

A petition that does not dispute the
material facts on which the
Department's action is based shall
state that no such facts are in dispute
and otherwise shall contain the same
information as set forth above, as re-
quired by rule 28-106.301. Under sec-
tions 120.569(2) (c) and (d) of the
Florida Statutes, a petition for admin-
istrative hearing must be dismissed by
the agency if the petition does not sub-
stantially comply with the above re-
quirements or is untimely filed.

The subject site is located 0.25
miles South of the 331 (Clyde B.
Wells) Bridge and North of Bay Mag-
nolia Lane, Santa Rosa Beach on un-
named wetlands, Class III Waters of
the State, Section 30, Township 02
South, Range 19 West, Latitude:
3023'57"N Longitude: 86011'42"W,
Walton County.

The procedures for petitioning for
a hearing are set forth below.

A person whose substantial inter-
ests are affected by the Department's
action may petition for an administra-
tive proceeding (hearing) under sec-
tions 120.569 and 120.57 of the
Florida Statutes. The petition must
contain the information set forth be-
low and must be filed (received by the
clerk) in the Office of General Coun-
sel of the Department at 3900 Com-
monwealth Boulevard, Mail Station
35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000.

Because the administrative hear-
ing process is designed to redeter-
mine final agency action on the appli-
cation, the filing of a petition for an ad-
ministrative hearing may result in a
modification of the permit and lease,
or even a denial of the application. Ac-
cordingly, the applicant is advised not
to commence construction or other
activities under this permit/lease until
the deadlines below the filing a peti-
tion for an administrative hearing, or
request for an extension of time have
expired.

Under Rule 62-110.106(4) of the
Florida Administrative Code, a person
whose substantial interests are af-
fected by the Department's action may
also request an extension of time to
file a petition for an administrative
hearing. The Department may, for
good cause shown, grant the request
for an extension of time. Requests for
extension of time must be filed with
the Office of General Counsel of the
Department at 3900 Commonwealth
Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahas-
see, Florida 32399-3000, before the
applicable deadline. A timely request
for extension of time shall toll the run-
ning time period for filing a petition until
the request is acted upon. If a request
is filed late, the Department may still
grant it upon a motion by the request-
ing party showing that the failure to
file a request for an extension of time
before the deadline was the result of
excusable neglect.

In the event that a timely and suf-
ficient petition for an administrative
hearing is filed, other persons whose
substantial interests will be affected
by the outcome of the administrative
process have the right to petition to
intervene in the proceeding. Interven-
tion will be only at the discretion of the
presiding officer upon the filing of a
motion in compliance with rule 28-
106.205 of the Florida Administrative
Code.

In accordance with rules 28-
106.111(2) and 62-110.106(3) (a) (4),
petitions for an administrative hearing
by the applicant must be filed within
21 days of receipt of this written no-
tice. Petitions filed by any persons
other than the applicant, and other
than those entitled to written notice
under section 120.60(3) of the Florida
Statutes, must be filed within 21 days
of publication of the notice or within
21 days of such notice, regardless of
the date of publication.

Under section 120.60(3) of the
Florida Statutes, however, any person
who has asked the Department for no-
tice of agency action may file a peti-
tion within 21 days of such notice, re-
gardless of the date of publication.

The petitioner shall mail a copy of
the petition to the applicant at the ad-
dress indicated above at the time of
filing. The failure of any person to file
a petition for an administrative hear-
ing or pursue mediation as provided
below within the appropriate time pe-
riod shall constitute a waiver of those
rights.

A petition that disputes the mate-
rial facts on which the Department's
action is based must contain the fol-
lowing information:

(a) The name and address of each
agency affected and each agency's
file or identification number, if known;
(b) The name, address, and tele-
phone number of the petitioner; the
name, address, and telephone num-

AMENDMENT FROM1-C


of tax money."She listed sev-
eral examples, namely, new
schools without sufficient
student populations and
studies that "now sit on ware-


house shelves."
After McQuiston's opening
remarks, Rep. Coley took the
podium and briefly explained
the nature of a newly-passed
statutory bill and gave the
basic parameters of the pro-
r posed amendment.
"We did pass a statutory
bill that requires a manda-
tory tax cap," she said. Ac-
cording to Coley, it is the tax
cap that is the most impor-
tant of the two resolutions
contained within the bill.
This would allow for growth,
Coley explained, while ensur-
ing that due taxes were still
collected.
The bill's other part dealt
t with the necessary tax roll-
back. However, there were a
k few issues with the rollback:
it isn't going to be all that
much. The tax rollback will
take taxes back to 2006 lev-
els, rather than the initially
proposed 2001 levels. One at-
tendee quipped that that was
the year when the tax situa-
tion began to get out of con-
trol. "You have to compro-
mise," Coley said. Based on
the reaction she got initially,
it wasn't what the crowd
wanted to hear. The fault,
Coley said, lay with the state
Senate, who could not be per-
suaded to accept more than
2006 tax levels. "People can't
afford to pay their taxes,"
Coley said, and the bill was
"a step in the right direction,"
although she admitted that
this was only the beginning
of a lengthy process to ensure
that Florida taxpayers could
afford to live here.
The bill applies to all va-
rieties of properties, home-
steaded or not. It also takes
into consideration out-of-
state property owners, who
are, as she said, "a large
source of tax revenue." The
simple logic goes that if out-
of-state property owners find
it too expensive to maintain
their property ownership,
they raise rental rates, when
the renters can't afford to pay
up, the property owners are
forced to sell into an unfavor-
able market and proverbially
'get out of Dodge.'
The only stick in the bill's
spokes is the product of a tax
rollback: the cuts in revenue.
All of the cuts must come
from local budgets, not the
state budget. "I'm not here to
say what to cut and not to
cut, but we do have to make
cuts," Coley said. Brown
agreed, saying "It's not our
place to say a program is
wrong or bad, but to allocate

money does go into educa-
tion, but it does not go in on
top of other funds as prom-
ised."This, Brown explained,
is part of what he referred to
as a plan by "forces at work
in the state who want to see
an expansion of gambling"
for the purposes of covering
shortfalls in revenue, some-
thing that he and Coley are
very much opposed to. "I
don't want to see it (gam-
bling) as an easy way out,"
Brown said.
Keeping questions to the
subject of the school system,
one other attendee who de-
clined to give his name asked
the rationale behind return-
ing to 2006 tax levels, rather
than pushing for less expen-
sive levels, and who was the
biggest lobbyer for the 2006
levels. Brown said that it was
the Florida Association of
Counties who were largely
behind the effort to push
these tax levels, as they were
second highest only to this
year's perceived levels.
Brown said that despite that,
"it doesn't mean that Walton
County was specifically
against the lower proposed
tax rollback."
Bob Hudson, of the WCTA,
then presented a series of
slides demonstrating numer-
ous aspects of the current fi-
nancial climate in Walton
County. Due to the rollback,
the county will cut back, ac-
cording to Hudson's esti-
mates, $6,024,237.
"We really want this sur-

resources." Those cut will
come in the form of fewer ser-
vices, hence the survey that
the WCTA distributed.
Next, the two representa-
tives discussed the particu-
lars of the proposed constitu-
tional amendment. The gist
of it is that 75 percent of
taxes on property valued at
less than $200,000 will be ex-
empt and 15 percent of prop-
erty values above $200K will
similarly be exempt.
That isn't all that the
amendment is about though,
said Rep. Brown. The pro-
posed amendment preserves
the mobility of property own-
ers, if only a bit. The amend-
ment would "give (property
owners) the right to choose
whether to maintain the cur-
rent so-called "super-size"
plan, or to adopt the new ex-
emptions, with each appeal-
ing, it's thought, to different
demographics of home own-
ers. The new plan, Coley said,
is "especially important to
the elderly and first-time
home owners," for whom
money can be tight.
Brown said that "if the
amendment passes, it will be
the biggest tax cut in Florida
history," and reiterated
Coley's point that the amend-
ment is a "step' in the right
direction."
After making their pre-
sentations, the two represen-
tatives heard questions from
those in attendance. The first
to speak up was Dick
Luverne, who proposed his
own amendment to the con-
stitution that, as he ex-
plained, "Did away with the
property tax, 100 percent."
Coley said, however, that
such a proposition had al-
ready been brought before
the legislature and it "met
with too much opposition," to
go through.
One attendee, Tony Cook,
asked, the simple question,
"What's the downside?" The
answer Coley gave was
equally simplistic: "There
would be less revenue."
A question was then asked
as to why the decision was
made not to place a tax cap
on spending by school boards,
considered by many in atten-
dance to be a major source of

that the state government

does not accentuate the base
side of human nature,"
which, according to Brown
and Coley, is exactly the plan
beginning to take shape in
the state legislature.
