Church members


confront Freeport


City Council at


crowded meeting


By BEN GRAFTON
Spurred on by anticipa-
tion of discussions of the fire
that destroyed the New Be-
ginnings Church on SR-20
west of Freeport, the Coun-
cil Chamber at Freeport City
Hall on July 10 was filled to
overflow with a sometimes
raucous crowd. The press
was represented by reporters
and photographers from sev-
eral area news organizations.
Speaking for the members
of the New Beginnings
Church, Melissa Thomas,
daughter of the church's min-.
ister, addressed the Council
saying that the congregation
bears no ill will. However.
she went on to say that some
of the firemen at the scene
said that some of the fire hy-
drants did not work. She also
suggested that the water
supply was not adequate.
Had these factors nor been
present, she said, she be-
lieved the building could
have been saved.
I Mayor Mickey Marse said
that the city bought the fire
hydrants and installed them
so that there was a hydrant
within 1,000 feet of buildings
served by the Freeport sys-
tem. He said that although
the city installed the hy-
drants, the Freeport Volun-'
teer' Fire Department
(FVFD) was responsible for
use, inspection and mainte-
nance of the equipment. He
said that the FVFD was sup-
posed to test the performance
of each hydrant once a year.
Marse said that the hy-
drant that failed was only
about a year old and.it was
installed in a six-inch
line. He reported that a hy-
drant installed in a larger
supply line was, "right across
the road," but it was not
used. He said that city and
Walton County firefighters
need to know the system.
Councilman Earl King
said that he understood the
operating stem of the valve
that failed was broken. He
said that a broken valve was
not a measure of the supply
of water available, and that


AFTER ZACK FOREHAND'S resounding two-run homer in the first inning, the entire

DeFuniak captures



district crown


By REID TUCKER and
PATRICK CASEY
It looked like Friday the
13th was going to be a titani-
cally bad day for the DeFu-
niak Springs 11-12 year old
All-Star team, as late in the
game the bases were loaded
with one of Destin's top bat-
ters at the plate. Then, just
when it needed to happen,
everything worked out for
the youngsters, who, next
weekend, are on their way to
the sectional tournament in
Tallahassee.
The game started off with
a bang as Zach Forehand hit
a two-run homer in the top
of the first inning to give the
visiting DeFuniak squad a 2-
0 lead.
Destin would never re-
cover, but they certainly held
off any further advances by
DeFuniak, as a deep shot to
center hit by Jesse Cosson
was relayed to catch the bat-


ter at second base for an out.
Destin's ace 'pitcher Marshall
stuck out D)eFuniak's next
batter to end the inning.
In the bottom of the first
inning with Forehand on the
mound, Zacl h Carter recorded
the first out for DeFuniak,
catching a? deep pop-up to
center field;, while Forehand
got both th( second and third
outs as strikeouts.
DeFuniaPk went down in
order in thi second inning as
Destin struck out the first
two batters, and got the last
out when JpeFuniak popped
one up in the infield.
The bottom of the second
was interriiipted by a power
outage, forcing a delay of 20
minutes. Destin used the
time to recoup some of their
strength as the squad
stroked tw o of the three hits
that Forel hand gave up dur-
ing the game in that inning.
With rumnters on first and


second, he struck out the rest
of the side to end the threat.
With DeFuniak's bats re-
maining silent after the first
inning, it was up to Forehand
and the DeFuniak defense to
hold the lead. In Destin's half
of the third inning Forehand
struck out the home team's
first batter, only to see the
second reach base on an er-
ror. DeFuniak's Brennan
Orcutt erased that mistake
as he caught a pop-up behind
second and doubled the run-
ner off the first base bag to
end the inning.
In the bottom half of the
fourth inning Destin re-
corded a one-out single, but.
DeFuniak's John Clenney
caught a lazy pop-up in right
field for the second out. Fore-
hand handled a bunt attempt
for the last out to end the in-
ning.

the system could supply
more than enough water'to
fight the fire.
Councilman Charlie
simmons, who represents the
Council with the FVFD, said
that there should be more in-
spections and maintenance.
He told the attendees to con-
tact their county commis-
sioners and tell them they
need to fund the fire depart-
ment in Freeport. From the
floor, doubt was expressed
about the condition of hy-
drants in the system, par-
ticularly those serving the
schools. Simmons said that
all hydrants would .be
checked immediately.
Thomas said that many
mistakes were made and
that the members of the
church wanted to see the
problems fixed. Marse said
he agreed with the need to
correct the problems. Tho-
mas closed by saying that the
church was asking for dona-
tions to help their rebuilding
effort.
In other business, City
Planner Latilda Henninger
advised that the Freeport
Area Council of the Chamber
of Commerce could make
available community emer-
gency response training for
employees.
The Department of Trans-
portation (DOT) no longer al-
lows acceleration lanes com-
ing out of developments but'
it does permit deceleration:

developer installs turn lanes
for his property that DOT
says the developer will have
to surrender the property,

these issues are still under:
review.

By DOTTY NIST
From $94 million in 2005,
to $119.7 million in 2006, to
$137.5 million in 2007, back
to a proposed $128.1 million
in 2008, has gone the Walton
County budget.
It's said that what goes up
must come down, and in this
year the State of Florida has
taken on gravity's role. The
result is a county budget al-
most $9 million "closer to
ground" as compared with
last year's.
Due to tax reform legisla-
tion this year, Florida's coun-
ties are being required to cut
taxes back to 2006-07 fiscal
year revenue levels. Also,
Walton County is one of 17
Florida counties subject to an
additional nine- percent cut
as mandated by the legisla-
ture. Lowering of ad valorem
tax collections as a result of
the state mandate amounts
to about $5.6 million of Wal-
ton County's budget reduc-


tion for 2008.
According to Walton
County Fibnance Director Bill
Imfeld, the balance of the
budget crit is related to non-
ad valorem items such as
lowered penny sales- .tax col-
lections .that fund county
landfill operations, a cut in
federal I-UD funding, and a
reduction in the recreational
plat fee revenues that are de-
pendent: on new develop-
ment.
On J.ily 11, the Walton
County 'Board of County
Commissioners (BCC) exam-
ined a draft budget for the
2008 fiscal year and voted 3-
0 to set the county millage
rate at 3.3563 mills for the
new fiscal year, almost a half-
mill redu- action from the cur-
rent yea r's rate of 3.81 mills.
One raill equals one dollar
of ad vaillorem tax revenue
per $1,0100 of assessed prop-
erty value. The 3.3563 rate
is the maximum millage rate


Public hearings for official adoption of the
2008 budget will begin in September.


allowed by the state for the
2008 fiscal year, Imfeld com-
mented at thd July 11 com-
mission budget workshop.
According to the draft
budget, property taxes will
fund slightly more than $56
million of the $128.1 million
total budget amount in the
new fiscal year. The figure for
the current year's ad valorem
tax collections is almost $60
million, or about $4 million
more. This is despite the
BCC reducing the county's
millage rate by one-half per-
cent last September for the
2006-07 fiscal year.
' In 2008, ad valorem taxes
will provide about $27.5 mil-
lion in, funding for depart-


ments under the BCC (down
from $38.3 million in 2007),
about $14 .3 million for
county public works (down
from $19 million), and
slightly over $14 million for
the Walton County Sheriff's
Office (up from $12.9 mil-
lion). The 2008 budget also
provides $300,000 in ad va-
lorem tax funding for capital
projects.
The personnel force for the
.BCC departments and con-
stitutional officers is to in-.
crease by three personnel in
2008, as compared with nine
in 2007. County Administra-
tor Ronnie Bell expressed his
hope that Walton County
Sheriff Ralph Johnson would


work with him and the BCC
to reduce his proposed bud-
get. The sheriff's budget calls
for seven new employees, in-
cluding four new deputies, an
administrative clerk, an evi-
dence clerk, and a mainte-
nance/custodial/mechanic
position, along with 5-per-
cent salary increases for cur-
rent deputies.
District 4 Commissioner'
Sara Comander said she'
would support the pay in-
crease for deputies but that
adding new deputies at .this
time is "not practical." .
Johnson responded that
the additional deputies are
needed to keep pace with
crime and traffic problems as
the county's population
grows, and that the other
personnel are needed to
avoid his having to pull depu-
ties from duty for other tasks
required by the state. "If the

Commissioners resist "dumping the dump"


By DOTTY NIST
It might be said that there
is gold in a dump or landfill,
not literally but in terms of
value and the way it serves
the community.
Recently the representa-
tive of a waste management
company had approached the
Walton County Board of
County Commissioners
(BCC) to inquire if the county
would consider selling the
county landfill property to be
operated privately by the
company. The commissioners
directed staff to investigate
the possibility and whether
or not it would be of benefit
to the county and the public.
A public workshop was de-
voted to the topic on July 10.
Engineer Aaron Warren of
Walton County Public Works
had researched the pros and
cons of selling the landfill
property and provided his re-
port. The commissioners had
also anticipated a presenta-
tion by Bart Beagly of the
waste management com-
pany, Emerald Waste Sys-
tems, on their proposal. How-
ever, Beagly was not present.
George Ralph Miller, a local
attorney representing the


company ownership, was
present but provided only
brief remarks at the end of
the workshop.
Warren noted that, on the
positive side, the sale of the
landfill would be expected to
provide a large sum of money
for the county, representing
a "rather large" positive im-
pact on the budget. He re-
ported that the county has
over 1,261 acres attached to
the landfill. He esti-
mated that operation of the
landfill would provide a $38
million annual gross revenue
for a private owner, plus roy-
alties that could be charged
for tipping fees. This would
be if a private owner set up a
regional facility for house-
hold garbage as the company
interested in the purchase is
proposing to do, he ex-
plained. The rate that could
be charged per ton of house-
hold garbage would be $45
per ton, Warren said. Cur-
rently household garbage is
not kept at the county land-
fill but is shipped out to an-
other county.
Warren said the county
could also consider setting up
a regional facility but that it


According to Warren, the two main issues to be consid-
ered'by the commissioners were: "Do we want Wal-
ton County to become a regional dumping
facility?" and "Who do we want managing
the environmental impact associated with
the landfill?"
.


would be necessary to care-
fully weigh the decision and
consider potential environ-
mental impacts. Warren also
noted that, with the landfill
under county ownership, the
county is eligible for certain
grants, such as one recently
received to fund recycling
trailers. He said that having
the landfill under private
ownership would make the
county ineligible for such
funding.
Warren also saw an ad-
vantage in the current situ-
ation in which Walton,
County employees, most of
whom live in the area and
therefore have a keen con-
cern, are the ones respon-
sible for management of any

potentially environmental
risks associated with the
landfill.
Also, currently the county
does not accept waste from
other areas or states, he said,
and this ]might not be the
case with the landfill under
private ownership. Warren
said that ,thanks to county
ownership, of the landfill
property, space is maintained
for emergency disposal of
materials as in the case of
storm impaLcts.
According to Warren, the
two main issues to be consid-
ered by the commissioners
were: "Do we want Walton
County to become a regional
dumping facility?" and "Who
do we wan t managing the
environmenAtal impact asso-
ciated with ihe landfill?"
District 41 Commissioner
Sara Comartder asked War-
ren how lo ng the landfill
property would be sufficient
for Walton County's needs
under county ownership..
Warren responded that
the time frame would be un-
til the days of "our grandkids'
grandkids...t.he foreseeable
future." He said that the
property wou lid likely "fill up
fast" if it were sold. Warren
commented that there could
also be problems if the county
sold the property and later
wanted to getl; back into the
landfill business.
"In whose b, ack yard would
we put it?" he asked.
District 3 Commissioner
Larry Jones recalled that the
county had previously put in
a lot of time an d effort "clean-


ing up" long-standing envi-
ronmental issues at the land-
fill. He said that in his opin-
ion, starting to bury house-
hold garbage there would be
"a step backward." He sug-
gested that the commission
refrain from further consid-
eration of the landfill sale
proposal.
"There is an adage that if
it's ain't broke, don't fix it,"
commented District 4 Com-
missioner Sara Comander.
To County Commission
Chair Ken Pridgen, the cen-
tral consideration was the
advantage of the county re-
taining control of the landfill.
District 5 Commissioner
Cindy Meadows found it "dis-
concerting" that someone
from Emerald Coast Waste
Systems had not been in at-
tendance to provide a presen-
tation at the specially sched-
uled workshop.
Attorney Miller did not ex-
plain why no one was present
but requested time for his cli-
ent to respond to Warren's
presentation.
He said he believed his cli-
ent would take issue with
some statements in Warren's
report. He added that he be-
lieved the county would be in-
terested in the "revenue
stream" that would be pos-
sible through sale' of the prop-
erty.
The commissioners did not

take action to set up another
workshop for a presentation
by Emerald Coast Waste
Systems, but they noted that
the possibility exists for any
party to make a request to

sion meeting to initiate a dis-

Man

arrested

for copper

theft

On July 14, patrol officers
of the DeFuniak Springs
Police (DFSPD) responded to
a report of a suspicious
person near the Tony's Paint
and Body building, located
near the intersection of South
11th Street and Baldwin
Avenue. There the officers
noticed a man behaving
suspiciously, standing by the
building's air conditioning
units. The man was described
as black, wearing work gloves
and sweating profusely.
There appeared to be a small
amount of blood on his right
arm.
Investigation revealed
that the copper connection
lines to the building's air
conditioning compressors
had been broken and
removed. The man, later
identified as Mathes Edward
Howard, 52, of DeFuniak
Springs, reportedly admitted
to stealing the missing
copper. The broken copper is
believed to have caused the
injury to Howard's right arm.
Howard later led the officers
to a nearby location where he
had stored some copper pipe,
reportedly for removal and
sale.
Howard was arrested for
felony criminal mischief and
misdemeanor theft. The
damages caused by Howard's
actions were estimated to be
about ::;, 111(.

Paxton considers



maintenance costs


By REID TUCKER

Paxton Mayor Wanda
Smith's monthly report to the
Town Council was on the cur-
rent status of the Paxton ag-
ricultural building, used for
everything from family re-
unions to large-scale meet-
ings. The building has come
under scrutiny of late for sev-
eral reasons, one of which
Smith had as her principal
point: the cost effectiveness
of maintaining the building.
Councilman Joe Melton said,
"We're losing money on that
building, bad. I'm not saying
we need to make a lot of
money, but we need to break
even; at least pay the light
bill."
Mayor Smith said the rea-
son behind the shortfall is
partly due to the light bill,
which usually runs between
$120 and $220 per month.
The various bills incurred by


heavy use of the building are
usually absorbed by the rent
charged to use it, but lately,
several non-profit organiza-
tions have had their rents
waived by the Council.
Melton said that this was
done because of "the good-
will it brings to the city."
Councilman Bill McRae ex-
plained that even when the
full rate was charged, the
cost of renting the building
is lower than many other
comparably-sized buildings
for rent in the tri-city area.
Several plans were
quickly put forth as how best
to offset these costs, includ-
ing new cleaning fees. Bill
Courtney, who also spoke at
last month's meeting, again
offered his services to the
Council. Coucilman McRae
facilitated the bulk of the dis-
cussion. Courtney, who has
cleaned the agricultural
building in the past, said that


he would furnish the sup-
plies needed and would
charge the council $450 per
cleaning, twice per year. As
the going rate came to be just
above $1,000, the savings of
roughly $200 were enough
for the Council to consider
the proposition. As there was
no pre-existing contract with
the current cleaner and there
was no legal necessity to ad-
'vertise for a job under
$1,000, Courtney was unani-
mously selected to handle
cleaning duties.
Councilman Bobby Kemp
said of Courtney's work in
the past, "I've heard a lot of
good reports," a sentiment
shared by fellow council
member Anne Sexton who
recently came from the agri-
cultural building, "It looks
good, really good."
The other proposed idea to
limit operational costs of the
building was simply to in-

crease the temperature of the
thermostat. According to
Mayor Smith, the building
has sometimes been found to
have been running for sev-
eral days at as low as 70 de-


grees. The Council concluded
they would keep the tem-
perature between 75 and 80
degrees, and at the next
months meeting, reassess
the decision in light of the


bill.
The one option not consid-
ered was increasing the
rental rates for users. "If you
charge too much no one will
want to use it," Smith said.


Paxton Town Council estab-


lishes Welfare Committee


By REID TUCKER
Councilwoman Jenice
Armstrong reported that the
Walton County Council on
Aging has established a com-
mittee, of which she was in-
cluded, that would be respon-
sible for determining what
services elderly community
members would like to be
changed or added. "Several
changes may not be good,"
Armstrong said. "Things
may become harder for older
people."
For example, of the five el-
der citizens in Paxton who
participate with the Council
on Aging, only two will be eli-
gible now, due to their dis-
tance from the Council's cen-
iter of operations. It was sug-
gested that the Town Coun-
cil write a letter to the re-
cently-formed committee
showing their support for the
group. "We need your sup-
port in general," Armstrong
said.
After a motion was made
to appoint the mayor as the
committee's representative
with the Paxton Town Coun-
cil, Armstrong suggested
that a Paxton-specific com-
mittee be formed for the pur-
pose of addressing two ma-
jor areas of concern, the first
being welfare of the citizens
and the second relating to
Paxton High School's recent
nomination as a hurricane
shelter by the Walton County
Emergency Operations Cen-
ter.
The question remains as
to who will take control of
maintenance of the school in
the event of it being used as
a shelter and who will be in
charge. Predicting the argu-
ment between the school
board and EOC about man-
agement of the school,
McRae said, "We'll have to
help ourselves."
He suggested that the
school would need emer-
gency communication equip-
ment and power, and not
least of all, leadership train-
ing. Councilman Kemp
agreed, saying, "Now is the
time to think about it. This
will fall on our shoulders." It
was the general consensus of
the Council that the bulk of
EOC's resources will sent
south of the bay.
In response to these
mounting concerns, the
Council voted to establish a
hurricane preparedness com-
mittee. Citizen Robert Kitch-
ens said, "The people of Pax-
ton would almost be angry if
we didn't do this." The com-
mittee, consisting of five
people, will be established at
the next Town Council meet-
ing.
In other Council news,
Councilman Melton ex-
plained that the new gym
currently under construction
at Paxton High School has
been correctly hooked up to
the sewer system, complete
with a new crew and inspec-
tor working on the operation.
"This inspector is more con-
cerned with the problems


we've been having," Melton
said.
Councilman McRae ex-
pressed some concern on his
part regarding the Dixie
Youth League. "There's a lot
of consternation and misun-
derstanding," he said. Appar-
ently, said McRae, "the word
isn't getting out to the
people" about the Council's
support of the Dixie Youth
League's endeavors. McRae
asked that the mayor go be-

Editor's Comment
By RON KELLEY


The Jewel of


the Panhandle
It's a view I never tire of seeing. The centerpiece of De-
Funiak Springs is the Lakeyard. It's the kind of place that
looks entirely different, depending on your perspective, the
weather and the time of day. I've seen it in the morning
mist, the evening fog, during sunshine, rain and even snow.
I've taken hundreds of pictures of the place and no two pho-
tographs are exactly alike.
It's been a special place for generations of people, resi-
dents and visitors alike. Through the years, the town fa-
thers have kept a close eye on this jewel of the Panhandle
and faithfully preserved it in near pristine glory. This big
pond is the reason for the town's existence. It was this lake
that first captured the eye of that fateful railroad survey
party. Mr. Chipley was so enamored of the place, the rail-
road line was forever detoured from its straight-line course
from Pensacola to Tallahassee and Jacksonville just to run
past its quiet shores.
If the jewel that is the Lakeyard can be said to have a
crowning glory of its own, then that must surely be the
Chautauqua Hall of Brotherhood. Since Wallace Bruce had
the stately building constructed on the western shore of
Lake DeFuniak, it has shaped the destiny of this town,
hosted the Chautauqua Winter Assembly, countless plays,
musical performances, concerts, school functions and sport-
ing events and stands at the very heart of all that makes
this place unique.
Like most folk, I was delighted to see the DeFuniak
Springs City Council approve some major repairs and res-
torations for the building and the Herald-Breeze chronicled
this process for our readers, near and far.
The City Council is planning a re-dedication service to
mark the completion of the project and I planned to attend.
So imagine my shock as I did something I've done a mil-
lion times in my life I drove past the Chautauqua Hall of
Brotherhood. But this time, I saw something I had never
seen before in all my trips around Circle Drive.
There are four LARGE, shiny, copper-colored stovepipes
running down the front of the building as some part of an
elaborate gutter system along the second story roof line. It
looks hideous ugly beyond my limited skills and powers of
description.
First, there never was a gutter system before, but if one
were needed, WHITE might have been a good color, instead
of this copper-waiting-to-turn-green look. Further, any first--
year draftsman would have run the stove pipes along the
roof line around to the side of the building where the WHITE
stovepipes could then trail down the side and send the wa-
ter harmlessly away to either side of the structure in-
stead of draining down onto the front sidewalk. It looks
like something the Clampetts put up.
Helloooo! Someone's asleep at the wheel over at City
Hall again.
The Hall of Brotherhood is a landmark, an icon repre-
senting more than a structure. It represents an ideal and,
frankly, I like the way the front of this historic building has
always looked. I don't know who thought this was a good
idea or who approved it, but they must be related to the
guy who convinced Coca-Cola to ditch the classic formula
and market New Coke or else to the guy who told young
Elvis Presley that he should go back to driving trucks for a
living. '
After careful analysis, I must respectfully suggest that
somebody get that inept, inelegant, ungraceful, unsightly,
unnecessary disfigurement down off that building.

Letters to the Editor


Editor,
I could not help but to be a little aggravated by the letter
from Mr. Holder of Santa Rosa Beach. I am a native son of
Walton County, Paxton to be exact, and I am a veteran of
multiple theaters of "conflict." I am currently assigned to 3rd
Stryker Brigade, 2nd Infantry Division out of Fort Lewis,
Washington, and we are currently on our second tour in Iraq.
I have over 18 years of service behind me and I plan to stick
around for at least another 10. My family and I have endured
multiple deployments, both here in Iraq and in other theaters.
Since September 11, I have been away from my wife and
children for over three of those six years. My comrades and I
have persevered through good times and bad, moving about
the country dealing with "problem areas," living wherever
there is room for us. We wear, on average, 50 pounds of body
armor, equipment, and amino in 120+ degree temperatures
for 8-12 hours a day. We risk our lives for each other and the
people of Iraq while representing our country, the American
people and our way of life a way of life that the average Iraqi
would literally die for, because the average Iraqi lives in an
incredibly poor, substandard environment, one that the poor-
est American couldn't come close to rivaling.
While we took on this job (I call it our job because that is
what we all voluntarily signed up for and we approach it from
that perspective) because of Saddam's WMDs, we have a
greater responsibility as human beings to help those who can-
not help themselves. I can understand why Mr. Holder thinks
the way he does about the "war," as he so frivolously puts it,
but ignorance is not an excuse. He is privy to an infinitesi-
mally small amount of what goes on frdifi day. to day here in
Iraq. Moreover, the average American will only see what the'
mass media wants them to see; tragedy achieves higher rat-,
ings than success stories. However, I will give him a second
chance and challenge him to read a couple history books.
Wars are an ever-evolving thing and will never be what
they used to be. WWII was unlike WWI, Korea was unlike
WWII, and Vietnam was nothing like any previous war. Hence,
Iraq is very much unlike any other conflict in our Army's his-
tory. We fight against a cunning and determined enemy com-
posed primarily of religious fanatics and former regime ele-
ments. They are deathly afraid of democracy and freedom in


Editor,
I am writing about an issue that has gone unaddressed for
too long that of the perpetually chained or penned, so-called
"outside" or "backyard" dog.
There is no sadder sight than these outcast, forlorn, for-
gotten animals, relegated to the status of lawn ornaments
and virtually ignored by the family.
Many chained or penned dogs are seriously neglected. They
lack fresh, unfrozen water, adequate housing, hygiene and
the most basic veterinary care, including vaccinations required
by law. Every winter such dogs are found frozen to death. At
other times of the year, they may be left to starve until they
die.
Chaining is not only inhumane for dogs, but has taken a
severe toll on this nation's children. In the period from last
October until this month, there have been at least 17 chil-
dren killed or seriously injured by chained dogs across the
country. Chained dogs, unsocialized with humans, can be-
come very territorial of their tiny space, and any two-year-
old who wanders into this space can be attacked and killed
before adults can intervene.
A recent attack in July of 2004 lead to the death of two-
year-old Patricia J. Anderson in Cook County, Georgia. Patricia
was attacked and killed by a bulldog-mix chained behind the
house of a family friend.
Furthermore, researchers are confirming the link between
animal abuse and neglect and abuse and neglect of children
and perpetration of future crimes.
Austria is the latest nation to ban the chaining of dogs,
completely prohibiting the practice. Connecticut is the first
state in the nation to limit chaining, and Hawaii currently
has a bill in committee. There are at least 50 communities or
counties in at least 26 states with limits on chaining. Our
state needs to be a part of this growing movement to elimi-
nate chaining of dogs.
The wording of model legislation and a letter to send to
state representatives can be found by visiting the website
www.dogsdeservebetter.com.

Editor,
Once again, the Walton County Commissioners have
stepped up to show leadership under adversarial
conditions. The parking situation on old Highway 98, Scenic
Gulf Drive, for those of you that have moved here recently, is
one that has been going on since I visited the area in the
late '70s. It has only gotten worse as the area has become
more popular. Now with a true parking plan, enforcement
and control can be the new beginning. We can control where
people walk on the dunes and get serious about recovery of
the area. True leadership was once again exhibited as the
commissioners examined the whole picture and realized that
a comprehensive parking solution would best serve all of
the residents and visitors to the world's most beautiful
beaches.

Iraq and will stop at nothing to insure it does not exist here.
They kill their own fellow citizens who do not. share their
radical views much less support them. They kidnap men,
women, and children in their sleep and hold them for ran-
som in order to collect money to finance their operations.
How is that history book coming along, Mr. Holder? Those
who are ignorant of the past are forever condemned to re-
peat it.
To date, 3,584 of my brothers- and sisters-in-arms have
made the ultimate sacrifice and over 15,000 have been seri-
ously wounded (loss of limb, eye site, brain damage). Ad-
vancements in body armor and medical care are such that
an incredibly high number of soldiers are not only surviving
wounds that would have killed them during the Gulf War,
the vast majority of them return to duty within a day or two.
During the Gulf War, if you were shot in the chest with an
AK-47, your name would be on a memorial somewhere. Now,
thanks to technological advancements, soldiers are "shak-
ing off" high-powered rifle shots and killing or capturing their
attackerss. Make no mistake about it this war is the likes
of which the American people have never witnessed, but it
is definitely a war!
I wonder if Mr. Holder would have the same perspective
if he were in our boots, the boots of the soldiers that actually
carry this burden. I also wonder if Mr. Holder and those that
share his point of view know that less than one percent of
the American population is bearing this burden. I also would
venture to say that the majority of the American public does
not even personally know a soldier and I will not even ven-
ture'to;guess how few are even related to one. ...,
I will end this letter by saying that victory has been
achieved on our end. Now we need the American people to
stand up and declare our victory in the states. We spoiled
you with the Gulf War. You called it a war but, it was more
akin to a large battle. Be patient and continue to support us,
that is all that we ask of you. We will continue to do the
heavy lifting, Mr. Holder. You stay there and hold down that
couch for us.

Editor,
I see where the Walton County Commissioners plan to
cut funding for The Council on Aging and the Senior
Meals program, somewhere between $25,000 and $75,000. I
suppose they are cutting this program because there is no
money left in the Widows and Orphans Fund.
I was pleased to see that Commissioner Cindy Meadows
took a stand for Walton County seniors and The Council on
Aging. Even though she was a lone voice she was a strong
voice. I hope she will continue to stand against four big strong
men (that's a joke) and take even a stronger stand? Even
$25,000 is too much to cut from the senior meals programs.
I believe the senior programs in Walton County are his-
torically underfunded. Consider the delays in getting the Se-
nior Center funded as an example. Many seniors already feel
they are unwanted, forgotten, and that they have no voice.
Why can't you, our commissioners, put some projects and
purchases on hold until the county income is stabilized; as a
way to continue funding The Council on Aging and their
meals programs? For the county to postpone the purchase of
new furnishings or road equipment is no big deal. However,
for one of our seniors to miss a meal and a time of fellowship
around the table is a very big deal. Just for once, let's all
(and more specifically, our commissioners think of our se-
niors first. They have been an afterthought long enough.

DeFuniak Springs Police arrest fugitive


WANTED IN ALABAMA
is Bertrun Lopatrice Milline,
arrested in DeFuniak
Springs.


On July 12, DeFuniak
Springs Police (DFSPD) ar-
rested a fugitive wanted by
Alabama authorities. The
Daleville, AL. Police Depart-
ment had informed DFSPD
that Burtrun Lopatrice
Milline, 29, had outstanding
warrants for child abuse and
robbery, originating from the
Daleville Police Department,
as well as several felony war-
rants out of Dale County, AL.
Milline had in the past used
an alias of Antonio or An-
thony Baker. Milline had re-
cently resisted arrested and
escaped from Dale County


law enforcement officers, and
was reportedly likely to be
possession of a firearm. The
Alabama authorities sus-
pected that Milline Was stay-
ing in a motel in the DeFu-
niak Springs area.

Members of the DFSP pa-
trol and investigation divi-
sions searched for Milline by
visiting area motels, finally
determining that Milline had
been staying at the Adams
Motel since July 10.
While DFSP officers were
attempting to take Milline
into custody, one DFSP Of-


ficer approached the outside
rear of the motel room and
witnessed Milline escape
from inside through a small
rear window that faced the
back of the property. Milline
fell to the ground, landing
within inches of an officer.
Walton County Fire Rescue
was called to the scene and
gave Milline first aid for in-
juries caused by breaking
through the glass window.
After being treated, Milline
was transported and re-
leased to the Walton County
Department of Corrections
Facility in DeFuniak


Springs. Dale County A-
thorities were notified to re-


trieve Milline for extradition
back to Dale County.

Hall of
Brotherhood
Foundation -
to install


elevator
The executive board of the
Chautauqua Hall of Brother-
hood Foundation, Inc. met on
June 28, 2007 to further dis-
cuss plans to raise funds for
the installation of a much-
needed elevator in the exist-
ing building on Circle Drive.
The Foundation was created
in 2003 as a non-profit orga-
nization dedicated to the res-
toration of the Chautauqua
Hall of Brotherhood.
Recent renovations have
refurbished the outside of
this icon of DeFuniak
Springs. Because of the un-
safe condition of the stairs
inside the building, many are
denied access to the second
floor, which has a kitchen
and more meeting rooms. An
elevator would allow for
more use of the building as a
gathering place and venue
for activities.
It was decided that $40,000
is needed to accomplish this
goal and that a fundraising
campaign would begin by
asking for donations. Donors
giving $100 or more will be
honored on a plaque placed
within the building The cat-
egories for giving are bronze
donor-a gift of $100 to $500,
silver donor-a gift of $501 to
$1,000 and gold donor-any
gift above $1,000. Smaller
donations are also gratefully
accepted.
Donations can be sent to
The Chautauqua Hall of
Brotherhood Foundation,
Inc. at P.O. Box 1, DeFuniak
Springs, Florida 32435.

WC employees training for better service


Maintaining proficiency
and acquiring new up-to-
date skills is an ongoing re-
quirement for Walton County
employees who provide pub-
lic services. This is particu-
larly important for employ-
ees in life-saving and first re-
sponder roles to ensure that
Walton residents and visitors
receive the best possible ser-
vices in emergency situa-
tions.
On Friday, July 13, Battal-
ion Chief Danny Fureigh, Lt.
James McMillan, and
Firefighter/EMT Scott Cory
of Walton Fire Rescue
trained on self rescue and
pumping evolutions at Fire
Station 7 in Fort Walton
Beach in joint training with
Okaloosa County Special
Operations.
Crews were trained in ad-
vanced self rescue proce-
dures including bailing out of
a window head first down a
ladder, bailing out of a two
story window using just a
tool and some rope, as well
as rescuing downed fire-
fighters by removing them
out a window and up and
down stairs.


BUDGET F

population stopped, I could
do what you want," he said.
"All services are not cre-
ated equal," Bob Hudson of
the Walton County Taxpay-
ers Association (WCTA) re-
marked in support of
Johnson's budget requests.
Hudson said that the key ser-
vices identified as important
by 876 local residents and
property owners surveyed by
the WCTA were roads and
road maintenance, law en-
forcement and emergency
medical services. "Don't dam-
age critical services," Hudson
urged.
"If everything else goes
away, you've got to have law
and order," Bonnie
McQuiston, also of the
WCTA, stated.


The training also provided
an opportunity for several
pumping evolutions with the
new Engine 10 that has just
been received by Walton Fire
Rescue. This engine will be
stationed at the Tri-Village
Fire Station in Choctaw
Beach. According to Chief
Fureigh, all the participants
performed extremely well in
the high heat, and gained
much from the training.

"Let's support the sheriff's
department...these people
are living on starvation
wages," J.B. Hillard agreed.
District 1 Commissioner
Scott Brannon emphasized
that the commission did not
want to send the message
that the BCC does not sup-
port the existing deputies,
but he found it to be reason-
able for the sheriff to provide
a breakdown of expenses for
salary increases and the cost
of adding the new personnel.
The draft 2008 budget had
called for elimination of fund-
ing to the Economic Develop-
ment Council of Walton

On Thursday, July 26,
Walton's Public Works Divi-
sion employees will all at-
tend special training in en-
vironmental issues that are
crucial to their work around
the county. In a one-day spe-
cial training stand-down, the
county's largest division of
177 people will meet in the
Walton County Extension
Services facility on North 9th


Dr. Stacey Tempkin, D.O.
Tues., Wed., Thurs.'
7:30 am 4:30 pm
Fri. 7:30 am 2 p.m.


Street in DeFuniak Springs.
The training sessions will
be hands-on with attendees
divided into four groups to
maximize this educational
opportunity. Each training
session will also be video
taped for refresher training
in the future and for new
employee training.
Topics will include current
county policy review: policy
violation and consequences;
erosion and sediment control
procedures; wetlands recog-
nition and working around


wetlands; identification and
control methods for exotic or
invasive plants; and the
county's National Pollutant
Discharge Elimination Sys-

charges of stormwater into
surface waters of the state of
Florida from certain munici-
pal, industrial and construc-
tion activities.
Instructors and speakers

2008 also called for reducing
the county's contribution to
the Walton County Chamber
of Commerce from the cur-
rent year's $45,500 to
$22,750 and cutting in half
the current year's contribu-
tions to the Red Cross, the
Association of Retired Citi-
zens, the Council on Aging,
Elder Care Services, and the
Tri-County Community
Council, along with other dis-
cretionary contributions.
The commissioners agreed
to meet with the EDC to dis-
cuss what the organization
has accomplished and in-
tends to accomplish and
what the county can receive
in return for investment in
the EDC, with the possibil-
ity of some county funding
going to the organization in
2008.
After a discussion on the
role of the Council on Aging


and the meals it provides to
the elderly, District 5 Com-
missioner Cindy Meadows
suggested cutting the
county's contribution to that
organization by only $25,000
rather than the $75,000, the
50-percent cut that had been
proposed.
County Commission
Chairman Ken Pridgen also
suggested that the county fa-
cilitate communication on
ways for the charitable asso-
ciations to eliminate dupli-
cated services and share re-
sources.
Public hearings for official
adoption of the 2008 budget
will begin in September.

zoning category C-1 commer-
cial allows many uses includ-
ing both commercial and
residential development. A
proposed development just
west of City Hall would like
the Council to agree to con-
sider a project with commer-
cial use on the ground floor
and condominiums above. A
motion to agree to consider
such a concept, with the un-
derstanding that
such consideration is not fi-
nal approval of the project,
was approved.
Henninger said she is


L FROM FRONT

working on a draft revision
of the C-1 zoning category
and will present it at the next
Council meeting.
Henninger said that a sec-
ond developer wants the
Council to consider a pro-
posal for a 19-acre category
C-1 property on the east side
ofU.S. 331 south. In this case
commercial buildings facing
the highway would be
erected and then a 260-unit
rental apartment complex
would be constructed behind
the commercial buildings.
The Council approved a mo-


tion to consider the proposal
which would be subject to
regular building review.
City Attorney Clayton
Adkinson told the Council
that the proposed local agree-
ment with Walton County
concerning the barge port is
still under review by county
attorneys.
City Engineer Charles Pe-
ters reported to the Council
that he has been working on
cost reduction
measures for the proposed
activity building. Prelimi-
nary discussions with the low
about design changes are
promising. The Council was
assured that the appearance
of the building would not be


changed. The Council gave
Peters approval to try to ne-
gotiate a contract.
The Council approved is-
suing an appreciation proc-
lamation for the Walton
County Chamber of Com-
merce.
Kerry Jackson lodged a
complaint with the Council
about trash, garbage and an
unoccupied mobile home that
have accumulated on a prop-
erty on SR-20 East. County
Code Enforcement has
worked with the land owners
trying to get the situation
rectified but without success.
Simmons said the Council
will take care of the situa-
tion.

ily is afraid of you and if
that was not bad enough, you
have these pesky voices run-
ning loose in your head day
after day. Fear that your dis-
ability causes others to dis-
count your ability to be a pro-
ductive part of the commu-
nity. Many people with men-
tal illness struggle with these
types of fears every day.
Mental illnesses affect one in
four of us at some point in our
lives. This means we have
at least one relative, friend,
neighbor or co-worker living
with a mental illness and it
is just as common as heart
disease.
Like President Bush said,
"Americans must under-
stand and send this message:
mental disability is not a
scandal it is an illness. And


like physical illness, it is
treatable." No one is "im-
mune" from mental illness no
matter your age, race, reli-
gion, income or education
level, but if you have a men-
tal illness you can recover.
Recovery is possible. Only
half of people treated for
heart disease recover, where
eight out of ten ,of folks
treated for depression re-
cover.
As a community we need to
come together to get rid of
this notion that you can't re-
cover from depression,
schizophrenia, anxiety disor-
ders, obsessions, phobias or
other mental illnesses. We
believe you can recover from
alcoholism or diabetes, but
fail to give someone with a
mental illness the same


hope?
Just like treatment for any
physical illnesses or addic-
tion, there are medications to
take, activities to avoid and
steps to take toward recovery
and resiliency. For example,
if you are diabetic you may
find it hard to stay away from
sweets, but this is a life
change you must make in or-
der to recover. Whether you
have a physical illness or a
mental illness all you want
is to get well.
The first step is for our
community to make mental
health a priority by changing
our own personal attitudes,
dispelling myths about men-
tal illness, and making men-
tal wellness, along with
physical wellness, a part of
our every day lives.

CROWN
FROM FRONT

In the top of the fifth,
Clenney was able to reach
base with a bunt of his own,
but got caught at second on
an attempted steal and Chris
Murphy struck out to end tLha
threat.
The bottom of the inning
saw Zach Forehand bear
down as he struck out all
three of Destin's batters.
Destin put DeFuniak
down in order in the top of
the sixth, leaving the home
team three outs to rally for a
tie or win. It nearly came to
fruition. Forehand struck out
the first batter in the inning,
but Marshall reached with a
deep single to right center.
Forehand then managed to
strike out Destin's second
batter, but in the process
reached his 85-pitch limit
that automatically requires a
coach to substitute a new
pitcher.
Enter Christopher
Murphy, who has pitched in
spot relief for the team dur-
ing DeFuniak's six-game
run. However, Murphy pro-
ceeded to walk Destin's next
batter after a lengthy battle,
then loaded the bases with
two outs after issuing an-
other free pass. After threat-
ening to walk in a run by run-
ning up a 3-0 count on the
next batter, Ronnie Murphy
paid a visit to the mound.
Ronnie, who is Chris' father
and coaches the team with
Ronnie Bell, obviously knew
what he was doing. The
younger Murphy proceeded
to throw three straight
strikes to end the game as
the DeFuniak crowd and
youngsters erupted in cel-
ebration.
Ronnie Bell said after the
award ceremonies had com-
menced, "The kids did an
outstanding job, they actu-
ally hit the ball tonight!" He
added, "They're an awesome
group of kids. They made our
job really easy." Bell also said
that, after a well-earned
break from baseball, the
team would start practicing
for next weekend's sectional
tournament on Monday.
Coach Murphy was ec-
static as well. In regard to his
son's saving performance in
the game's final moments, he
said, "That's what it's all
about. But it ain't over yet."
Forehand earned the win
while striking out 11 in 5 2/3
innings of work while
Marshall struck out 10, but
wound up with losses in both
of his starts against DeFu-
niak in the tourney.
The two teams played
three times over the final
four days of the 11-team dis-
trict event. It took 14 days
and 21 games to settle the
double-elimination affair
with DeFuniak recording 2-
1, 3-7 and 2-0 decisions.
The two teams had
squared off on Tuesday night
in a winner's bracket contest
that saw DeFuniak rally
from a 1-0 deficit by scoring
two runs in their final at-bat
in the bottom of the sixth in-
ning. Forehand pitched 5 1/3
innings in that contest allow-
ing an RBI-groundout in the
first inning.
DeFuniak worked magic
over their final time up in the

"Anything Goes" is a fun summer cruise


By BRUCE COLLIER

Okaloosa-Walton College
sets sail this week on what
has been described as the
largest set yet constructed for
an in-college production. The
OWC Humanities Fine and
Performing Arts Division is
presenting Cole Porter's
musical "Anything Goes."
The show opens on
Wednesday, July 18 and runs
through Saturday, July 21.
Performances are in the
Mattie Kelly Fine and
Performing Arts Center, at
7:30 p.m. Clifford D. Herron
directed.
Porter is widely
acknowledged as one of
America's finest composers,
particularly in the area of
lyrics. "Anything Goes"
contains some of his most
clever work, including "You're
the Top," "Easy to Love," "I
Get a Kick Out of You," "Blow,
Gabriel Blow," and the title


tune. If you haven't at least
heard of some of these songs,
you watch too much VH-1.

This production is adapted
from a version presented in
the 1980s on Broadway, with
a new book, taking off from
the original. Since the
original book was written by
master wordsmiths Guy
Bolton, P.G. Wodehouse,
Howard Lindsey and Russel
Crouse, it's hard to imagine
what kind of improvements
could have been made.
"Anything Goes" is very
much a product of its time,
full of slangy, breezy Ivy
League humor, topical
references, and a few non-PC
caricatures.
It's also about two-and-a-
half hours in length. Porter
and friends wrote
entertainment in the time
before TV, and audiences
expected a lot of bang for
their theater buck. "Anything


Goes" delivers, with non-stop
singing, dancing, cute chorus
girls, and a twisty, feather-
light story.
Set aboard a luxury liner
en route from New York to
London, "Anything Goes" is a
romantic comedy that starts
with mismatched couples and
ends with properly-matched
couples. Like most musical
comedies, the story doesn't
bear close scrutiny. The fun
comes with the journey.
Everybody gets on the boat,
and after a lot of singing,
dancing, and intriguing,
everybody comes out all
right.

The principal characters
are well-cast, which is half
the fight in any production.
The two mismatched couples
are Reno Sweeney (played by
Wendy Justice), Billy Crocker
(Tim Norton), Hope Harcourt
(Erin Carloni), and Lord
Evelyn Oakleigh (Clint


Mahle, who also found time
to design the set).
If that's not enough and
apparently it wasn't there's
a supporting subset of other
couples, including Elisha
Whitney (Bruce Culpepper),
Evangeline Harcourt (Darla
Briganti), Moonface Martin
(R.J. Murdock), and Erma,
the gangster's moll (Rachael
Jones).
Mahle's set features
several levels, giving
performers a crash course in
staircase aerobics. Colors are
bright, lines razor-sharp,
and lighting (designed by
Bronwyn Hernandez) offers a
few "wow" effects. Much of
choreographers Joseph A.
Taylor's and Kelly Murdock's
dancing takes place on the
main deck, with lots of tap,
ballroom, and even a tango.
Herron has wrought the
sort of ensemble essential to
this kind of show, but there
are some standouts. Wendy


Justice brings red hair, a
solid belt, and miles of leg to
"bad girl" evangelist
Sweeney, supposedly based
on real-life "Sister" Aimee
Semple McPherson. Tim
Norton has a great feel for the
style needed to play romantic
hero Crocker, with a smooth
voice and easy grace of
movement. Mahle is all bony
angles including a
mammoth mustache as the
cheerfully stuffy Brit,
Oakleigh.
Worthy supporting
performances come from
Rachael Jones as Erma, a
soiled dove who cracks gum
and trails a half-dozen sailors
wherever she sashays. Bruce
Culpepper plays millionaire
Yalie Whitney like a
Prohibition preppie, all hip
flasks and rowing songs. As
Hope, Erin Carloni has a
sweetly beautiful voice, and
Danny Thomas's cheerfully
preoccupied Captain makes


you wonder who's minding
the ship.
I'm told there are several
hundred costumes in the
show, and an uncountable
number of quick changes.
Costumer Linda Corley rose
to the occasion with plenty of
color and elegant period
style, especially for the
ladies, with more than a
"glimpse of stocking."
The chorus, dancers, and
orchestra directed by Guy
Heath and Carolyn Schlatter
- bring everything nicely
together. I saw a dress
rehearsal on July 15, and
there were a few pauses and
slow spots, but. they've
probably all been tightened
up by now.

All singing, all dancing, all
running around like crazy
people in love. That, and the
music of an American master,
makes .for a worthwhile
evening.


"BLOW, GABRIEL BLOW," Reno Sweeney (Wendy Justice, center) and herangels entertain CHORUS GIRLS AND SAILORS get into the Cole Porter spirit in one of the many dance

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, JUlY 19, 2007
PAGE 4B


In Matthew 13:47-50
there is found the last of
seven parables which the
Lord Christ set forth. It
brings us to the end of this
age, when the whole sys-
tem of human living will be
tested and judged. Let us
look at the words of this
Word from the Lord:
Consider the net. It is
prepared to catch fish. It is
an emblem of the Gospel of
the grace of God. The net
receives all who come into


it. The invitation of the Gos-
pel is universal, meant for ev-
ery person. Good and bad may
be caught in it.
Then there is the sea, it rep-
resents the vast sea of people
and their changeableness,
restless-ness and danger. Into
the sea of mankind the Gos-
pel net is cast with the pur-
pose of gathering out a people
unto His name.
Verse 47 says the net "gath-
ered of every kind." The Gos-
pel is put to a wrong use when


it is meant to gather the
'saved and the unsaved into
the same spreaders. But a
sifting time is coming.
They drew in the net (v.48).
The net is meant for the
saved by grace, but all kinds
of the unfit by grace are
drawn in. There is a time -
and it may be near, when the
net is full, the end of the age.
The opportunity of salvation
will then be gone.
Verse 48 says the net
"drew to the shore" as the


fishers their task. The fish
drew closer together as the
net came to shore. There is a
great cry for "union" in the
present time. Let us be care-
ful not to be like everyone else
as God's net is drawn.
There will be a separation.
"They gathered the good, and
cast the bad away" (v.48). The
bad may boast that they are
as good as those saved by
grace separation. But the
Lord knows those that are
His.

Area All-Star games wrap up


By PATRICK CASEY
Little League All-Star
tournaments wrapped up as
area district tournaments
came to a close with Sec-
tional tournaments getting
underway for most teams
this weekend.
DeFuniak Springs saw a


pair of their Little League
baseball teams win district
crowns as the 7/8/9-year-olds
won the Pitching Machine
tournament title in June and
the 11-12 year old squad ad-
vanced to the Tallahassee
Sectional that will be played
this weekend.


Four other All-Star tour-
naments came to a close last
week as Freeport made a
solid run in the Junior
League bracket that was
played in Crestview. After
winning their first two
games, Freeport was swept
by Tri-County 20-5 and 6-3


to be denied a trip to the next
round.

Results for area sectional
tournaments can be found at
www.eteamz.active.com/fldl
and with links that can be
obtained via that site.


Sports News and Notes


By PATRICK CASEY
The Malone girls basket-
ball team lost a member of its
program on Saturday, June
30, when senior Mary Black
was killed in a car accident.
Black, 17, was a member of
the Tigers Class A state run-
ner-up team last season and
had just returned from a bas-
ketball camp with her team-
mates. Four other teenagers
ranging in age from 14 to 16
were also in the vehicle at the
time of the wreck early Sat-
urday morning.
Three were listed in seri-.
ous condition and one criti-
cal, according to the Florida
Highway Patrol. The acci-
dent was characterized "alco-
hol-related" and none of the
passengers, including Black,
were wearing seat belts.
Black also competed on the
Malone softball team as their
catcher last season.

FAMU High fullback Ri-
chard Watson announced his
oral commitment to Georgia
Tech last week, making him
the third Big Bend football
player to make a preseason
decision. Watson will face off
against Walton on Thursday,
September 6, in Bragg Sta-
dium in Tallahassee. Last
year FAMU escaped with a
19-18 win and went on to win
the Class B state champion-
ship after losing to Walton
the-_previous .three- seasons.
Watson carried for 2,140
yards and 34 touchdowns in
2006 to lead the Baby Rat-
tlers to the state title and has
racked up more than 4,000
rushing yards in his three
years at FAMU High.
Former Marianna base-
ball player Jeff Mathis has


Local
By CHUCK HINSON
After 12 rounds, local boxer
Roy Jones Jr., got his victory
in Biloxi when he defeated
Anthony Hanshaw to win the
IBC heavyweight title.
Jones used to razzle and
dazzle his fans and the
crowds as he entered the
ring. Blowing kisses to the
ladies, shaking his money
maker and knocking out his
opponent before the first bell,
he was the king.
At 38-years-old, those days
are history, and despite still
pulling out the victory, it
now takes him a few more
rounds.

been called up by the Los
Angeles Angels. Mathis, a
2001 first-round draft pick,
will look to improve his bat-
ting average after hitting
only .103 in 2006 in a short
stint with the parent club.
Mathis was called up when
backup catcher Mike Napoli
was placed on the disabled
list on July 2.
Another former Marianna
baseball player, Alan Horne,
was able to live his all-star
moment before thick fog can-
celed the Eastern League All-
Star Game last week. Horne,
a New York Yankees prospect
pitching for Double-A Tren-


ton in New Jersey tossed a
scoreless inning of relief with
two strikeouts for the North.
That was in the second in-
ning, and he exited with a
scoreless tie. The game
ended that way an inning
later when coaches, umpires
and league officials decided
to call off the rest of the game
for safety reasons.
Pensacola Catholic High
School hired Felicia Terhaar
last week to follow the late
Randy Pounders as the
school's volleyball coach.
Terhaar, 26, served as an as-
sistant under Pounders last
season and spent the previ-


ous five years as a coach at
Volleyball Pensacola, an or-
ganization Pounders created.
Florida State University
has reached an agreement
with Florida Citrus Sports to
play a neutral site football
game in Orlando, pending a
renovation of the city's
Florida Citrus Bowl Sta-
dium. The game, which'
would pit the Seminoles
against a quality non-confer-
ence opponent, would be
played in .either 2012 or
2013.

The news makes news


By CHUCK HINSON
It is not often that the news
makes its own news, but the
Associated Press has done
just that over a list of names
of players who have used ste-
roids in major league base-
ball.
A federal judge gave per-


mission for the AP to argue
that the names should be re-
vealed from a search war-
rant, in which former league
pitcher Jason Gremsely al-
legedly implicated players in
steroid use. The AP says that
the public has a right to know
and is just another reason


that there should be manda-
tory drug testing in all pro-
fessional sports.

However, not everyone
agrees with the AP. The Ma-
jor League Baseball Players
Association opposes the re-
quest and also has asked to


intervene. U.S. Magistrate
Edward C. Voss signed the
one-page order this past
Tuesday that would allow the
arguments. The final ruling
is not scheduled until July
26.

The baseball organization


has until July 19 to file reply
briefs which many expect to
come sooner than the desig-
nated date.

The U.S. Attorney's office
in San Francisco filed papers
last week opposing the AP
applications since the ste-


roid-use investigation into
pro players is still ongoing.
TheAP is moving ahead with
their arguments and feels
that the nation has a right to
know which sports icons
have been hitting the "juice,"
and which sports icons have
been wrongfully accused.


Yelas wins Bass Angler of the Year


Continuing to live out his
dreams, Berkley Pro Jay
Yelas adds to his list of fish-
ing accomplishments that
just keeps growing. Already
a Bassmaster Classic Cham-
pion, FLWAngler of the Year
and a member of the $1 mil-
lion career earnings club,
Yelas clinched the 2007 FLW


Angler of the Year on Friday,
July 13 during the season's
final event on the Detroit
River (MI.).
Yelas came into the event
leading the Angler of the Year
race by 26 points over Shinici
Fucae. Yelas, by virtue of his
combined weight of 34
pounds in the first two days


of competition, was declared
the winner of the prestigious
award.

"The three biggest small-
mouth I caught today were
on the Berkley Gulp! Gobies.
It's been that way all season.
Virtually every tournament
Gulp! came into play," Yelas


Stewart stings the track


By CHUCK HINSON
It finally happened for the
#20 Home Depot driver. He
broke his 20-race losing
streak.
Tony Stewart had taken
the back seat since late last
season to his teammate Jeff
Gordon until this past Sun-
day when he blew through
the finish line and declared
his own victory at the USG
Sheetrock 400 in Joliet, IL.
The victory could not have
come quicker, or at a better
time for Stewart, who had
been in the media for rea-
sons besides just being able
to pull out a victory this sea-
son, despite several close
calls at the finish line. He
had also thrown in the spot-
light due to his high-profile
fueled with teammate Denny
Hamlin. The two drivers had
aqwreck a week earlier at the
Daytona Speedway.


The two-time series cham-
pion was elated to finally
cross the finish line first and
was even more excited to
have this weekend off, as


NASCAR takes a break for
the weekend.
Matt Kenseth crossed the
line in second place and Carl
Edwards came in third.

Racing series round- up


THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, JULY 19, 2007


The point races in the
three StormPay.com Weekly
Racing Series Regions are be-
ginning to tighten up as more
drivers reach the 16-race
mark in the 16th week of the
27-week competition.
Jimmy Elkins Jr., of
Talladega, AL., leads the
East Region, Herman
Reynolds, of Laurel, MS.,
:leads the South Region, and
Frank Wilson of Milton, FL.,
leads the South Region.
In the StormPay.com
Weekly Racing Series point
tallies, a driver's 16 best fin-
ishes count towards their
season point total. Once a
driver reaches 16 starts, be-
ginning with the 17th race, he
can eliminate his worst fin-
ish of the season, and replace
it with a higher finishing
point total to net points.
Elkins has 654 points
'from his best 16 finishes in
20 starts to lead Chad
Wallace, of LaGrange, GA.,
by 65 points in the
StormPay.com Weekly Rac-
ing Series East Region.
Wallace has 589 points in 14
starts, so he can accumulate


total points for two more
races, while Elkins can only
net points.
Logan Yates of Delta, AL.,
is a strong contender in the
StormPay.com WRS East Re-
gion, as he is third with 584
points in just 12 starts. Yates
picked up his series leading
eighth victory of the season
on Saturday night at.
Talladega Short Track in
Eastaboga, AL. Adam Mar-
tin, of Talladega, is also a
title contender from the
fourth spot with 507 points
in 12 starts.
In other StormPay.com
Weekly Racing Series East
Region action over the week-
end, Richard Stephens, of
Phenix City, AL., continues
to be red hot, as he took his
third straight win at Penton

Corps (ROTC) at Okaloosa-
Walton College. The program
provides military leadership

lar option for students who
want to explore the possibil-
ity of a military career. "The
leadership training is also
excellent preparation for
other career fields and looks
great on a resume," said
Englett.

Private beach


issues heat up


with arrest


By JEFFREY POWELL
The recent arrest of an At-
lanta man near the Retreat
at Blue Mountain has stirred
up a controversial debate be-
tween private ,beach.owners
and the public.
Eduardo Gonzalez was ar-
rested on July 5, reportedly
for being approximately
three feet inside of the
Retreat's property. When
asked to resituate his belong-
ings Gonzalez refused and a
security guard contacted the
Walton County Sheriff's Of-
fice. Upon arrival, deputies
again asked Gonzalez to
move but he refused to relo-


cate. This refusal resulted in
his arrest and a misde-
meanor trespassing charge.
According to a release
from The South Walton Tour-
ist Development Council,
there are deeded private
beaches in Walton County.
The public is allowed to walk
on the beach in these areas
but cannot set up above the
wet sand delineation point.'
In western Walton County,
restoration has provided ad-
ditional public beach. Beach
set ups are permitted 35-40
feet from the waters edge on'
beaches west of Four Mile
Village and along Scenic Gulf
Drive.

renames

U.S. 331

By JEFFREY POWELL
The Florida Department
of Transportation (FDOT)
held a public hearing on
Thursday, July 12 to discuss
the naming of the new U.S.
331 (SR 83) re-alignment.
With construction nearing
completion, the FDOT held
the meeting to provide an
opportunity for property
owners and interested indi-
viduals to review the final
plans and be informed of the
renaming of existing U.S.
331. No one from the public
attended the meeting held at
the Freeport Community
Center.
Walton County GIS Coor-
'dinator Kevin Laird at-
tended the meeting and ex-
pressed his concerns about
the roadway's designation.
According to Laird, his de-
partment along with County
Administrator Ronnie Bell
and Freeport Mayor Mickey
Marse, had suggested that
the new portion of U.S. 331
be called U.S. 331 alternate
or U.S. 331 by-pass. Using
one of these designations
would have allowed the cur-
rent structures along the
roadway south of Owl's Head
to use their current ad-
dresses.
"Due to the change all per-
sons on that portion of the
road will have to change
their address," Laird said.
"This is going to create a
hardship for citizens and
businesses alike.Apparently
those suggestions fell on deaf
ears with the FDOT as the
existing portion of the road
will soon be redesignated SR
83A.
According to Laird, all ad-
dresses south of SR-20 will
also be impacted due to the
county's addressing stan-
dard. In all, a total of 267
residences, 123 businesses,
two schools and District Four

Asphalt plant


discussion draws crowd


By LEAH STRATMANN
Buchanan & Harper sub-
mitted a development order
application to the county for
a bituminous asphalt plant
on 11 acres of land, which is
zoned industrial. The site is
located on the east side of the
Intracoastal Waterway and
Old Ferry Road. More than
50 people were on hand to
comment on this develop-
ment, many of whom live in
the community of Bunker
Creek.
Speaking for the county,
Jason Bryan said the pri-
mary condition to approving
the development order was
road improvement to county
standards. All roads leading
to the proposed site are dirt
roads, which the county cur-
rently grades once a week.
"There are almost 10 miles of
unpaved road. The county
wants to find a way to im-
prove this road to county
standards before anything
goes forward," Bryan said.
Attorney Lamar Sikes
said the applicant has offered
to maintain the dirt road by
grading twice a week as well


as providing Walton and Bay
Counties with asphalt at
cost. The irony of an asphalt
plant, accessible only by dirt
roads was not lost on com-
missioner Tom Patton who
said, "So the only way to get
to the asphalt plant is by dirt
roads?"
Pat Blackshear said, "We
do not feel grading the road
twice a week would solve the
problem with the increased
truck traffic. It is not accept-
able to us. Road improve-
ment needs to be discussed
with public works."
Ron Tho:masson, a certi-
fied planner with Accrue
Planning and Land Use Ser-
vices, Inc. was hired by Bun-
ker Creek residents to evalu-
ate the situation. He said the
residents are in favor of prop-
erty rights but have issues
that concern them. "There
are blind curves on the road
which constitute a hazard,"
Thomasson said, providing
photographic evidence of the
area. "Another issue is emer-
gency response time, which
is influenced by conditions on
the road. Several residents


have indicated that the road
invites speeding, due to its
isolation and both Walton
and Bay Counties should co-
ordinate together to find so-
lutions to the problem. A re-
design of the roadway and
paving it would be the way
to go," he said.
Robin Partington, a resi-
dent of the area said,
"Weather conditions alter the
state of the road very much.
The thing that concerns me
which might be more impor-
tant than the road is the
massive quantities of water
needed to operate the plant.
There is a Pandora's box of
toxic chemicals, which are
carcinogenic, and the respi-
ratory problems which may
arise from the diesel pollut-
ants. Also, property values
will be.affected. When you
make your decision on this,
it will be your legacy. You can
put this in place or not. I
think it is against the health
and safety of all living
nearby."
Blackshear pointed out

Empty

victory for

Angelos at

Seagrove

Beach

By LEAH STRATMANN
The county's team of ex-
perts lined up against an
applicant's teams of experts
to 'discuss the Angelos at
Seagrove Beach project, a
major development consist-
ing of 24 multi-family units
on 3.57 acres on the west side
of Beachside Drive south of
San Roy Road. Even the
acreage at stake is somewhat
clouded with the applicant's
surveyor assessing the land
at 3.5 acres and the county's
surveyor saying it is more
like 2.9 acres. It was almost
10 p.m. before the discussion
even started, causing the exit
of commissioners Tom
Terrell, Bill Maxson and
Sally Merrifeld resulting in
an adjournment of the com-
missioners at a quarter to
midnight.
Rick Took, county sur-
veyor, said he reviewed the
survey documents. "I believe
both are boundary surveys.
I agree the boundary of the
parcel does not change
through evulsion (violent
forceful extraction, as by a
storm event). I have issues.
with the 2.9-acre survey if
the point was merely to find
the mean high water line if
the mean high water line is
the south boundary of the
parcel. We have two surveys
with two different results..,
One says the parcel is'2.9
acres and the other 3.5
acres."
At the end of almost two
hours of discussion, four of
the five commissioners de-
cided to approve the project
if conditions are met, but the"
10 conditions imposed by the
county for continuation of the
project may be difficult for,
the applicant to comply with.,
Speaking for the county,.
Jason Bryan spelled out the,
conditions which ask that the,,

Waterfront abandonment


issue still unresolved


By LEAH STRATMANN
An item postponed -from
last month's meeting still did
not find resolution at the
meeting last week of the Wal-
ton County Planning Com-
mission. At issue was a re-
quest for abandonment by
Ari Juke Junno, Inc. request-
ing the abandonment of the
right of way at the northern-
most section of North Eden
Park Drive consisting of an
area approximately 58-feet
in width, spanning north ap-
proximately 160 feet, to the
southern shore of the
Choctawhatchee Bay. The
site is located at the end of
North Eden Park Drive on
the northwest corner.
Attorney Robert McGill,
speaking on behalf of the pe-
titioners, said that after con-
sulting with county staff he
was now asking for the aban-
donment of only a portion of
the 58 foot wide by 160 feet
depth of the southern shore
of the Choctaw Bay. "Right
now the county has 33 feet
of frontage on the bay. We are
asking for the county to
abandon 25 feet leaving an
8-foot walkway. The county
then doubles bay frontage
and land owners in the area
would then get a park as the
abandoned area will have
pavers and picnic tables,
etc.," he said. "The county
will wind up with 76-feet of
bay frontage. In the end this


provides a net benefit to the
county and the neighbor-
hood. This would be a pedes-
trian park as there is no way
for cars to turn around.
"We would be happy to
have ia town hallimeeting
with all parties to discuss
other options," McGill noted.
Commissioner Tom Patton
asked if they county would
have to take over mainte-
nance of the pavers and
McGill said something would
be worked out.
Planning director Pat
Blackshear said, "This is the
first time I've seen this pro-
posal and the only way to
convince us to abandon wa-
terfront property is to pro-
vide a proposal that benefits
the county. We will take their
proposal and review it. I sug-
gest we hear the public com-
ments and reserve our com-
ments on the proposal since
we just heard of it tonight.
There was no mention of this
at Technical Review Commit-
tee (TRC) and I would like to
hear from the neighborhood
also. I suggest we continue it
but go ahead and hear the
public comment."
With that resident Cecilia
Johnson said, "We bought a
lot there knowing we would
have access to the bay. I don't
see this as a win-win for us
privately. People would park
in our yard to get down
there."

Fran Bailey said, "If they
do this, they would stop
North Eden Park Drive and
people would then have to
access the ir property by the
Dolphin Canal, which is
where we have our wells."
Citizen !Robert Sanders
noted, "Thiere is a lot of new
information here. I was un-
aware the lots had been re-
platted. I think there are too
many unresolved issues to
decide now.."
Rick Took, county sur-
veyor said, "'The lot split that
took place was not a re-plat.
The only action that can
change those lines is by state
statute. There is a 30-foot
building setback line that
still needs to be addressed. If
the entire 58-foot area was
cleared, could a car turn
around?"
McGill concluded, "We
have indicated our willing-
ness to help the county and
neighbors ad.d value to their
property and( we continue to
be ready to work with all in-
terested parties."
Commissioner Tom Terrell
made a motion to continue
which was passed.

Fire is a natural part of
Florida's ecosystems, but
wildfire is a particular threat
in Walton County because of
extensive timberlands, state
forests, and wooded areas
near residential develop-
ment.
During the dry spring
weather this year Florida
was plagued by wildfires.
The massive "Bugaboo Fire"
that started in Georgia, seri-
ously threatened Lake City,
FL. in April.
In May, Walton County
wildfires destroyed three
houses and damaged 12 oth-
ers in Seagrove Beach, and
more than 1,000 acres of tim-
berland near the Black Creek
community.
Walton County Emergency
Management, in partnership
with South Walton Fire Dis-
trict, and the Florida Divi-
sion of Forestry is hosting
workshops for homeowners,
builders, developers, commu-


nity leaders, and interested.
citizens learn how to protect
homes and neighborhoods
from wildfire.

Two FireWise workshops
will be held at the Coastal
Branch Library at 437
Greenway Trail in Santa
Rosa Beach. Both are free,
and open to the public,
FireWise workshops are co-
ordinated by Pandion Sys-
tems, a Gainesville-based
consultant, for the Florida
Division of Forestry.
"How to Have a FireWise
Home", an overview session
geared to homeowners and
interested citizens, will be
held on Monday, July 30, at
7 p.m.
A more intensive workshop
called "How to Make Your
Community FireWise," will
be held on Tuesday, July 31
at 9 a.m. This is designed for
builders and developers, de-
sign professionals, local lead-


ers and planners, as well as
interested citizens. Lunch
will be served during this five
hour workshop, so advance
registration is required by
Wednesday, July 25.

Marathon meeting draws large crowd


By LEAH STRATMANN
Several items on the
agenda at the last planning
commission meeting gener-
ated quite of bit of comment,
filled the meeting room, an-
teroom and the hall outside
and which led to a marathon
meeting which did not ad-
journ until almost midnight.
One of the first items on
the agenda was the Walton
Plantation project, a major
development order consist-
ing of 148 single family
homes on 6,460 acres with a
future land use of large-scale
agriculture. The site is lo-
cated off CR-2 east of CR-47.
The developers envision 148
houses and six amenity areas
consisting of an ATV track,
horseback riding trails, ar-
chery and shooting galleries
and an airfield. The area is
adjacent to a working timber
operation and the developers
see the houses as a rustic va-
riety for nature lovers to en-
joy weekend getaways.
Commissioner Tom Terrell
asked if the lots were big
enough to support wells and
septic tanks on each lot.
Project engineer Jim Barton
said each lot was about four
acres and could comfortably
support both wells and sep-
tic tanks.
Speaking for the county,
Tim Brown said traffic will
be addressed the conceptual
phase, and the developer will
produce his permits for the
wells. Brown also said a more
precise environmental as-
sessment needs to be made,
and storm water needs to be
addressed. The applicant
must also obtain Florida De-
partment of Transportation
(FDOT) approval for the air-
field.
Part of the problem with
this development is that an
ATV track already exists and
was created without permits
of any kind. The developer
has put in improved logging











Walton County
Commissioners
lift burn ban
In their Budget Workshop
held on Wednesday, July 11,
the Walton County Board of
Commissioners (BCC) took
time to convene an emer-
gency session to rescind the
burn ban that has been in
effect since May 24 for Wal-
ton County.
Noting that the current
Keetch-Byram index for Wal-
ton County has improved
considerably since recent
rains, commissioners stated
they have received numerous
calls from residents inquir-
ing about the ban. Emer-
gency Response Director Ed
Baltzley recommended lift-
ing the ban to the BCC.
The Keetch-Byram
Drought Index is used by a
number of agencies, includ-
ing the Florida Division of
Forestry, to determine the
potential for wildfires in the
area being measured. The
scale ranges from 0 (no mois-
ture deficit) to 800.
High values of the KBDI
are an indication that condi-
tions are favorable for the oc-
currence and spread of wild-
fires. Other weather factors,
such as wind, temperature,
relative humidity and atmo-
spheric stability, play a ma-
jor role in determining the
actual fire danger.
As of July 9, the Florida Di-
vision of Forestry KBDI
Summary showed 18 percent
of Walton County remains at
a level of 500 or more. Be-


cause of the diverse topogra-
phy of the county, it is pos-
sible that some areas have
more potential for fire than
others.
Therefore, Walton resi-
dents should continue to be
careful with fire sources such
as small trash fires, barbecue
grills, and smoking. In-
stances of smoke or fire ob-
served in wooded areas
should be called in to 911.


roads and they also put in a
motocross track without any
permits and disturbed the
wetlands.
Commissioner Albert
Paris said, "They put roads
in an area where no logging
roads existed. I don't think it
is fair for one developer to do
this type of thing when some-
one else tries to do it right."
Pat Blackshear, director of
the planning department
said, "We are working with
them to get them compliant
with the code. The real issue
for us is the airstrip. We've
been told it was for timber-
ing, but if you are going to
open it up for all the people
who own and build in there,
that's a different creature.
We have to get the master
plan approved and then deal
with every area on a techni-
cal basis. That is what we are
trying to do tonight. They
will have to come back with
every component of the
project. It is scheduled for
code enforcement next week.
If you are uncomfortable ap-
proving it tonight, continue
it until after it goes through
code enforcement," she sug-
gested.
Commissioner Randy Gar-
dener inquired about the
code enforcement issues, ask-
ing exactly what they were.
Blackshear said the issues
were a stop work order on the
motocross track, shooting
gallery and roads until a de-
velopment order was
granted.
"They need to stop divid-
ing lots and stop doing every-
thing. It is about a violation
of the stop work order," she
said.
Terrell said, "I have con-
cerns about the way this has
been presented and the ways
things have been conducted
in the past. There seems to
be a lot of stuff missing. I
have some serious concerns
with it."
Brown noted it would take
them three years to plat all
148 lots. "They are asking for
approval of all lots, but they
can only plat 50 lots per
year. Most of the lots have
already been sold. The .devel-
oper will bring applications
to the county with what they
want to plat each year at
their discretion," he said.
Commissioner Terrell
then made a motion to con-
tinue the issue until the next
meeting after the developer
has gone before the code en-
forcement committee. The
motion was seconded and
passed by all.
The other item to generate
some buzz was a small-scale
amendment request by
David Kramer to change 10
acres south of the


Choctawhatchee Bay within
the Point Washington State
Forest in Blue Mountain
Beach to coastal center or
any less dense category.
On behalf of the county
Carl Hammond said the staff
is concerned about access,
which is impossible without
four-wheel drive. There are
33-foot easements on two
sides, created by a forestry
scraper. Access is by foot or
four-wheel drive only, he
said.
Blackshear added, "What
we struggle with is what to
recommend for designation
of this parcel. We consulted
with state forestry folks and
so what we did was look at
categories and what might
fit. One dwelling unit for 1.25
acres on the condition the
road be improved or coastal
center seems to be the best
fit."
Blackshear also said in
the interest of full disclosure
she felt she had to inform the
commissioners the land had
once contained a cattle-dip-
ping vat. Even given that,
the county recommends ap-
proval as a conservation resi-
dential area, which allows for
two units per acre, and pas-
sive recreation.
At this point Kramer
jumped up and said there'
was no vat on the property.
In answer to that,
Blackshear produced photo-
graphic evidence of the vat
from an undated photo in the
past and a current photo
showing that the vat had
been removed and the area
planted over. "Whoever de-
velops this property will have
to clean up the area accord-
ing to state statutes. The
cattle dipping vat has been
destroyed."
Kramer said, "The so-
called cattle vat was likely
over 50 years old and I had
it dug up and removed. It
should have been designated
as infill 10 years ago because
three sides are occupied by
public land. We had hope for
two units per acre with
maybe a hostel or camp-
ground on it as well. We will
take coastal center because
it is so isolated. If you don't
want to designate it as
coastal center, we will take
infill. With infill I can do two
units per acre. I am looking
for a usable category. It is not
a density issue, but as infill
it gives us some commercial
capability if we want to try
and create some campsites.'
Billy McKee, an environ-
mental engineer for the
county noted, "Cattle vats
had all kinds of chemicals.
Removal is supposed to done
by a certified consultant. It
has been removed so we don't

know if it was contaminated
or not. If it was, it needs to
be disposed of properly.
There are some other pretty
bad chemicals that could
have been there, including
arsenic. Soil testing will have
to be done to find out what is
there before anybody breaks
ground," he said.
Citizen Celeste Cobena
said the land should remain
undesignated until the cattle
dip vat is cleaned up. "It
should not have been re-
moved by anyone except an
environmental expert. It ap-
pears it was just broken up
and moved away and the soil
spread around. Somebody
needs to look into this before
we talk about the possibility
of putting people on this
property.
"This is the time to say be-
fore we move any further,
let's clean it up. Before there
is any more discussion, it
needs to be cleaned up," she
said.
Anita Page, director of the
South Walton Community
Council agreed saying, "I
concur that now that this is-
sue has come to light. There
are homes 1,000 feet south of
this and some of the drain-
age goes into Draper Lake.,
There is continuity to the tox-
icity of the chemicals and soil
samples should be taken by
the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection
(FDEP)."
Kramer said the definition
on infill from the Land De-
velopment Code (LDC) says
infill is land surrounded by
private land but the Compre-
hensive Plan definition is un-
platted land surrounded by
land that is developed. "This
land is in the middle of a
state forest. What can be
done under conservation
residential?" Kramer also
said the issue of the vat was
not germane to the designa-
tion issue, only the develop-
ment issue.
Blackshear said, "I feel we
have to suggest conservation
residential as the designa-
tion. I don't feel we can rec-
ommend an, infill designa-
tion."
Commissioner Tom Patton
made a motion to designate
the land as conservation resi-
dential, which was passed by
all.

GRIT AND GRACE AUDITIONS have been scheduled for July 28 at the Freeport High School auditorium. For more
information on the production that takes place the first week of October,; call 835-2032.


"To act, or not to
act. That is the ques-
tion." This summer,
several productions
hit the stage along
the Emerald Coast,
while one local the-
ater group in Free-
port holds auditions
that are open to the
public for history-
telling play.
--.----------------------------------------
From Pensacola to Panama
City, productions are taking
place that not only offer a
cool place for entetainment,
but also bring fantasy and
story-telling to the stage. The
summer productions are one
of the best ways to escape ev-
eryday life and peer into the
lives of various characters.
Theater is also a way to ex-
press one's self on the stage
and become somebody else, if
only for a brief moment.
The Pensacola Little The-
atre presents their summer
production of "Bye Bye
Birdie. The production runs
from July 20 Aug. 5 at the
Penscola Cultural Arts Cen-
ter.
Tickets are now on sale for
the musical and can be pur-
chased by calling (850) 432-
2042.
Closer to home in Fort Wal-
ton Beach, Stage Crafters
Community Theatre has an-
nounced the upcoming dates


for its final summer produc-
tion of "Cahoots." The play is
about, an extra body found at
thY end of a mystery dinner
theatre. The cast plots
against each other and keeps
the audience guessing until
the end.
"Cahoots" hits the stage
Aug. 17-19 and 24-26 at the
Municipal Auditorium in
Fort Walton Beach. Tickets
are now on sale for $15 and
can be purchased by calling
243-1101.
In Seaside, the Repertory
Theatre continues its pro-
duction of "the Underpants"
at the town meeting hall. The
play runs Wednesdays
through Saturdays until
July 21.

"The Underpants" adapted
play by Steve Martin, for $25
a ticket and can be purchased
by calling 231-0733, or by log-
ging on to

One of the most highly-an-
ticipated productions of the
summer gets kicked off on


July 18 as OWC presents
their production of "Any-
thing Goes." The production
runs through July 21.
OWC's theatre department
is celebrating their 10th an-
niversary onstage. This sum-
mer they have chosen to do
the 1987 revival of the 1934
classic musical comedy,
which earned rave reviews
on Broadway and took home
three Tony Awards.
"Anything Goes" is a mu-
sical comedy that centers on
the complicated love affairs
between passengers aboard a
cruise liner traveling from
New York to London. The
production features toe-tap-
ping melodies, mobsters,
show girls, debutantes, busi-
ness men and many dis--
guises.
Local DeFuniak Springs
actor, Bruce
Culpepper,returns to the
OWC production as Elisha
Whitney. This is his fifth
OWC production.
Tickets are now on sale
and can be purchased by call-
ing the OWC box office at


729-6000.
So you have heard about
all the fun that characters
have on stage? You have
wondered what is so difficult
about taking on the person-
ality of a villain or a mob-
ster? So you think you can
act?
Well here's your chance to
do just that!
"Grit & Grace, "the official
folk life story of Walton
County, will be holding au-
ditions for the upcoming pro-
duction of "Songs of the
Homegrown Legends,"

torium.

ing and sound, costumes, set
design, ticket sales, promo-
tion and other opportunities

munity theater project suc-
cessful.
For more information, call

With so many productions
being offered to the public to
see and take part in, make
an effort to support local and

attraction in the next up-
coming musical or play!

to guess what time the sun will set and the winner receives a free beverage of choice.

STATE OF FLORIDA
DEPARTMENT OF
ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION
NOTICE OF INTENT
TO ISSUE PERMIT

This intent to issue a permit (File
No. 66-0268835-001-DF) to Dr. Tho-
mas McKnight for consideration of an
application for the construction of a
culverted access road for the future
development of a subdivision located
in uplands is hereby granted unless a
sufficient petition for an administrative
hearing is timely filed under sections
120.569 and 120.57 of the Florida
Statutes as provided below.

The project is located on near J.W.
Hollington Road, on Layayette Creek,
Class III Waters of the State, Unclas-
sified Shellfish Harvesting Waters,
Section 4, Township 1 South, Range
18 West, Latitude 30031'13"N/Longi-
tude 86002'40"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 hearing
process is designed to redetermine fi-
nal agency action on the application,
the filing of a petition for an adminis-
trative hearing may result in a modifi-
cation of the permit and lease, or even
a denial of the application. Accord-
ingly, the applicant is advised not to
commence construction or other ac-
tivities under this permit/lease until the
deadlines below for filing a petition for
an administrative hearing, or request
for an extension of time have expired.

Under rule 62-110-106(4) of the
FloridaAdministrative 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 ihe
Department at 3900 Commonweallh
Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahas-
see, Florida 32399-3000, before the
applicable deadline. Atimely 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 molion-by Inthe request-
ing pany showing I-al the-4ailure.io
file a request for an extension of time
before the deadline was the result of
excusable neglect.

In the event that a timely and suffi-
cient 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-

Walton County Board of
County Commissioners
(BCC) approve a.proposed
restoration as part of the 95
percent of the preservation
calculations seaward of the
coastal construction control
line (CCCL). The BCC is also
tasked with approving the
density and compatibility of
the project based on the size
of the parcel. Additionally
the applicant must provide
the U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service with an incidental
take permit, participate in
transportation proportional
fair share program, provide
the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection
(FDEP) with wastewater and
potable water permits, pro-
vide FDEP with a CCCL per-
mit, pay the applicable rec-
reation fee and provide an
updated boundary survey ex-
plaining the differences be-
tween mean high water lines
prior to the BCC meeting.
Dean Burgis with Emer-
ald Coast Associates submit-
ted the application and said
the density is 6.7 units per
acre with an ex-filtration sys-
tem for the water. The appli-
cant is not asking for any
variances for the project and
the project meets the park-
ing requirement of two
spaces for each of the 24
units. "We have spent a con-
siderable amount of time de-
signing and redesigning this
project and meeting with
county staff to address con-
cerns. I believe we meet the
vegetative requirements."
Maybe not, said attorney
Harry Chiles on behalf of the
county. "The real issue, as far
as the staff is concerned, is
the 95 percent preservation
of land seaward of the CCCL
or Coastal Protection Zone
(CPZ). The washout area is
not part of the 95 percent
that needs to be preserved.
The problem is the restora-
tion area will not be stable
for a long time and the exist-
ing dune will not be retained,
it will be replaced," he said.
Attorney Jesse Rigby on
behalf of the applicant said,
"We think the beach restora-
tion to be done on this area
will provide protected veg-
etation along with the devel-
opment. We believe we met
the requirements of the code
including the 95 percent of
vegetation forward of the
CCCL."
However, Mike Trudneck,
a coastal engineer with Tay-
lor Engineering, experts in
the field of beach restoration,
said simply,"Restoration is
not preservation. They are
asking for restoration so they
can destroy some existing
vegetation. Does restoration
have the same value as ex-
isting vegetation? Evidence
suggests it does not," he con-
cluded.
At issue here is a large
sand dune occupying the par-
cel. The sand dune has stood
the test of all of the recent
hurricanes and provided pro-
tection for homes behind the
vacant parcel.
Dr. John Warner said,
"The dune in front of my
house will be destroyed. The
dune was in a no-build zone,
which is the only reason I
purchased my house. Putting

Renovations begin at SWFD Headquarters


By JEFFREY POWELL
"Renovations that will
help centralize the South
Walton Fire Districts
(SWFD) mission have be-
gun," said SWFD Deputy
Chief Sean Hughes. Accord-
ing to Hughes the project will
solve at least three issues
currently faced by the fire
district.
"The main incentive was
to house the dispatch center
under the same roof as our
operational headquarters,"
Hughes said. "Secondly, the
reconfiguration of the build-
ing will provide a larger area
to conduct training. Also, the
renovation will expand op-
erational space for current
operations as well as the
needs of the future."
The SWFD building lo-
cated at 911 CR-393 will not
be the only location to ben-

a wall of cement in front of
my house will destroy my
dune, and my property's
value."
Anita Page, executive di-
rector of the South Walton
Community Council said,
"What amazes me when I see
the slides is how intact the
area is even after many,
many hurricanes. The dune
system on this piece of prop-
erty is enviable. I cannot be-
lieve someone is proposing
something that will take,
away that dune system. Can
the commission approve this
without all the permits in
place? Regarding the CCCL,
the applicant has to have all
the permits before the county
can approve it, meaning the
whole thing is moot at this
point. They should limit the
disturbance of the natural
topography to maximum ex-
tent feasible. I believe a
project can be designed that
does .not destroy this dune
system."
Compatibility is also an
issue. The applicant's expert
Wendy Gray says the project
is compatible with other resi-
dences in the neighborhood.
"There are duplex, single
family and multi-family
dwellings all in the area. My
conclusion is the project
meets the county's guidelines
for compatibility," she said.
Page said, "There is em-
phasis on the surrounding
neighborhood. As the report
notes, there are three multi-
family developments around,
but they predated the com-
prehensive plan and the
Dunes of Seagrove project
was tied up in litigation for
years.. So using a
grandfathered project and
one that was the subject of
much litigation as examples
is not relevant to the current
project," she said. "The 50-
foot height is up to the code,
but not to the surrounding
area. As designed, the project
is riot compatible. It could be
compatible and a project
could be designed that would
address all of these issues.
Go back to the drawing board
and see what can be done
that is more compatible but
which also protects the in-
credible environment found
there."
David Milam spoke on be-
half of people in the 120 units
that comprise Beach Side Vil-
las saying he had three is-
sues: "The stress on the in-
frastructure, the beach ac-
cebs for Beach Side Villa resi-
dents and the loss of beach
rights due to the receding
beach area."
Commissioner Randy
Gardner commented that the
project would seem to be den-
sity-compatible to the east
since Beach Side Villas com-
prises 12 buildings with 10


units to a building. "Is a re-
design possible that would
reduce the dune impact?," he
asked.

At the end of all discus-
sion, commissioner Tom
Patton made a motion to ap-
prove the project pending
staff approval. Susan Horn
voted nay, but the vote car-
ried with commissioners
Patton, Gardener, and Paris
'oting yea.


efit from the current con-
struction. Two of the existing
bay doors from the headquar-
ters building are to be used
to replace doors at the SWFD
Mack Bayou location. As a
result of the work, the doors
will no longer be needed at
the CR-393 location.
During the July 9, SWFD
regular meeting, Fire Chief
Rick Talbert acknowledged
that there had been some
public -scrutiny concerning
damaged and "unsightly"
doors at the Mack Bayou sta-
tion. "The door is unsightly
and will be corrected," said
Talbert. He also added that
the doors have not had an ef-
fect on the district's response.
Contractors Design Build
Systems is handling the
project and should be com-
pleted in 120 days. Cost for
the project is not to exceed
$750,000.
"Being able to use the ex-
isting doors to replace the
broken ones makes good fis-
cal sense," said Hughes. "We
try to be good stewards with
the taxpayers' money."

PLANT
FROM FRONT


that whether or not the plant
should be there is not the is-
sue. The area is zoned indus-
trial and the use of the prop-
erty is not in question. "Site
approval is the only issue.
The county cannot deny
heavy industrial use on this
piece of property," she em-
phasized.
Joan Vienot said, "We do
not have to approve any kind
of industrial use on this prop-
erty. We could approve those
[projects] without far-reach-
ing impact."
Mary Treelaven said, "The
road is very bad for school
buses right now. With added
traffic it will be worse and it
is an hour to an hour and half
for kids when the roads are
in excellent shape."
Jack Seay, a Bunker
Creek resident for 16 years
said succinctly, "There is a
100 percent chance if those
dump trucks are allowed to
run on those dirt roads,
people will die."
Commissioner Patton
said, "Don't think we can ap-
prove this project without
hardening the road." Com-
missioner Tom Terrell agreed
and commissioner Albert
Paris said, "The road is dan-
gerous with all the curves."
Patton agreed saying, "We
might also consider road
alignment, but I think there
should be a study of the


whole situation by the two
counties."
Patton then made a mo-
tion that the road be brought


to Florida Department of
Transportation standards or
county standards suitable for
heavy industrial traffic and


that Bay County also be
brought into the discussion.
The motion was passed by
all.
