The impact of impact fees


By LAKEN DAVIS
In DeFuniak Springs, im-
pact fees are meant to ben-
efit the community as a
whole, according to- city offi-
cials. However, not everyone
believes it is advantageous
for the city to place charges
such as these only on new de-
velopment.
Currently, DeFuniak
Springs collects a fee for
sewer impact and a fee for
water impact on all new de-
velopment in the area. The
ordinances for these two im-
pact fees were implemented
about two and a half years
ago, said Larry Laird, direc-
tor of the DeFuniak Springs
Building and Planning De-
partment. The city's fees are
issued based'on a calculation
of average usage and impact
on the two systems, Laird
said. The fees are collected
for both residential and com-
mercial development in a
one-time payment at the
time of issuance of a build-
ing permit to the property'
owner or developer.
"It [having impact fees]
helps to provide the infra-
structure that new busi-
nesses demand of the sys-
tem," said City Manager Kim
Kirby.


The difference in. prices of
impact fees is based on pro-
spective usage, Laird said.
Three terms are used to clas-
sify different developments
and to base the impact fee
from an individual residen-
tial user, a collective residen-
tial user (such as an apart-
ment or condo), and commer-
cial user, anyone other than
a residential user requesting
service. The fees differ with
location inside or outside of
the city limits both can,
choose to use city water and
sewer services.
For a residential develop-
ment'inside the city limits,
the water impact fee is cur-
rently $275 and the sewer
impact fee is currently $450.
For a residential develop-
ment outside of the city lim-
its, the current water impact
fee is $344 and the current
sewer. impact fee is $563.
However, with commercial
development, the prices are
based on an estimated aver-
age usage. For example, the
recently constructed
Walgreens store paid a total
of $16,493.40 for water and
sewer impact fees, according
to records from Laird.
"Our sewer and water im-
pacts are reasonable," Laird


said. Kirby noted that the
fees are controlled and man-
aged and will be reevaluated
every three years. "You want
to be fair to.the people who
are being assessed the im-
pact fee," she said. "Your
needs are going to change."
The funds collected from
these fees are used to up-
grade the sewer and water
systems, in order to provide
for the additional usage,
Laird said. "It's a means of
providing funding for that
[upgrades] and not placing
the burden on existing citi-
zens," Laird said. When a
businesses moves into a pre-
existing building, the owner
only pays impact fees if the
proposed business will im-
pact the systems more than
the previous building or
homeowners.
At this time, Walton
County does not issue any
impact fees for development,
according to Ronnie Bell, the
Walton County administra-
tor. However, the county has
been discussing a possible
fire services impact fee, he
said. The fee will be consid-
ered by the County Commis-
sioners in September.
As for the city, the water
and sewer systems each have

-Council to

look into a

'temporary

use' permit

By LAKEN DAVIS
At a regular meeting of
the DeFuniak Springs City
Council on Monday, July 23,
the councilmen agreed to
look into a temporary use or-
dinance that would require
all temporary uses of land to
be permitted by the city.
Greg Scoville, the city's
planning and zoning director.
presented information on the
issue, requesting authoriza-
tion to proceed with finaliz-
ing the preparation of the or-
dinance. Examples of tempo-
rary uses that would require
the permit are Christmas
tree sales in commercial
zones, new and used car
sales, and promotional ac-:
tivities involving the outdoor
display of goods and mer-
chandise.
Scoville said one reason
for looking into the ordinance
is that taxes on these tempo-
rary sales are not being col-
lected by the city. The permit-
ting will allow for more over-
sight on the sales.
Councilman Don Harrison
supported the idea. "People
from out of town are coming
in here and taking the rev-
enue, without supporting the
community at all, but wreak-
ing the benefits." Harrison
said.
However, one of the pro-
hibited uses of the temporary
use permit was listed as fire-
works stands. Harrison ques;.
tioned this listing, saying
that the ordinance should noit
prohibit something that is le-;
gal to sell in the state, such
as the fireworks.
"The big question to me,
though, is what are the fee:'
going to be." Harrison said:;
"I think they need to be sigi
.nificarit fees."
Scoville answered, saying
that fees will be presented as!
a companion for the first.
reading of the ordinance. Heb
said that different fees would
be assessed for different
sales.
Scoville also noted that
temporary businesses"
haven't made contributions
to the city like the existing,
permanent businesses have.
The council agreed to look
into the ordinance.
Also addressed at the
meeting was the Muscogee
National Resolution. Greg
Scoville and George
Newman, environmental di-
rector for the Muscogee Na-
tion of Florida, requested ap-
proval of a resolution for the
city to support the Muscogee
Nation's efforts to obtain fed-
eral recognition. The motion
passed.
Scoville and Newman also'
presented information on a
transportation regional in-
centive program (TRIP);
Newman, this time, spoke as
a member of Walton County
Engineering. TRIP is a pro-
gram that aids with funding
to improve transportation fa-
cilities in regional transpor-
tation areas. Newman said
the program offers an oppor-
tunity to improve area roads.
Funds from the program
could go to turn lane, inter-
section or traffic light im-
provements. The council took
the information into consid-

A new look at Vortex Spring


New management, new


guidelines, new rumors


By LAKEN DAVIS '
Though Vortex Spring un-
derwent a change of owner-
ship earlier this year, the
park remains a popular lo-
cation for diving, camping
and swimming. However,
changes have been made, in-
cluding new management
and new alcohol regulations.
With the changes have come
rumors.
In June, Shane Schiller
became the new general
manager of Vortex Spring.
He is a native Floridian and
has worked in the diving in-
dustry previously, he said.


He has been a manager of
several operations in the
past. However, he had no
comment as to why the old
management was removed.
One of the recent changes
made to the park was the
elimination of alcohol. The
dive shop no longer sells al-
cohol 4nd it is no longer al-
lowed on the premises. The
main reason for the change
was to prevent disorderly
conduct, Schiller said. In the
past, many calls had been
made to the Holmes County
Sheriff's Department con-
cerning fights and rapes,


THOUGH UNDER NEW ownership, Vortex Sprinrg, lo-
cated in Ponce'De Leon, continues to be a recreation facility
for divers, swimmers and campers. However, some changes
.have been made to the park's staff and policies. (Photo by
LAKEN DAVIS)


Schiller said. "The easiest
way to counteract that is to
eliminate alcohol com-
pletely," he said. "We want
families to start coming back
here. We want to be more
family-oriented."
The park would also like
to cater more to divers,
Schiller added. Currently, all
divers receive one free air fill,
and diving groups of 10 or
more receive a discount. In
the groups, two instructors,
the tenth person, and every
fifth person afterwards are
allowed to dive for free. Also,
from now until December, a
promotion allows for a 20
percent discount for all
divers who dive Monday
through Thursday. Those are
the slowest times for swim-
mers and divers can enjoy
the water more, Schiller said.
With the transition to new
ownership, the previous
owner, Denzel Dockery said
rumors have begun. Dockery
said he bought the spring in
1972 when it looked more
like a swamp or jungle than
the current park that it is
today. After turning it into a
location for diving, swim-
ming and camping, the
Dockerys ran the park as a
family business. .
Dockery said the best
thing about the spring was
listening to the kids on Sat-


DAVIS)


urday and Sunday mornings
saying, "Momma, look at
me." Over time, the opera-
tion became too much for
Dockery to handle, he said.
He decided to sell the spring
in 2006. The current owner
is a James L. Schmidt,
trustee: The Springs Land
Trust, according to the
Holmes County Property
Appraiser's office. A part of
the deal was to allow
Dockery a six-acre life estate
that included his current
residence by the park.
Shortly after the sale fi-
nalized, most of the park's
staff was replaced, Dockery
said. This included the park's
long-time manager, Connie

Taylor, Dockery's daughter.
Dockery said the family was
basically locked out. If he
enters the dive shop, he said,
the new staff will call the po-
.lice. "Why they suddenly
didn't want us there, I don't
know," Dockery said.
Since the changeover
Dockery has witnessed some
improper care for the spring,
he said. During the recent
drought, the new staff closed
the flood-control system to
raise the water level for


weekend divers and swim-
mers, Dockery said. This ac-
tion was reasonable, he said.
However, once the weekend
was at an end, Dockery no-
ticed that the water level
was much higher than it
should have been. He asked
a staff member about the
situation and later the con-
trol gate was opened and the
water level was back to nor-
mal. "I don't think the new

Brannon speaks to

Heritage Association


By JEFFREY POWELL
"We are losing valuable in-
formation as the older gen-
eration passes away," said
Walton County Commis-
sioner Scott Brannon "We
have the tools and technology
to gather and preserve the
history of our area before it
is too late."
The Walton County Heri-
tage Association welcomed
Brannon on Thursday, July
19, as guest speaker for their
summer quarterly members
meeting.
Brannon, a history enthu-
siast himself, came to the
meeting to discuss his plan
to create a historical global
imaging system (GIS) over-


lay of Walton County.
According to Brannon, the
project will be an ongoing ef-
fort, but he is concerned that
valuable data could be lost if
not addressed as soon as pos-
sible. When completed, the
historical overlay will be
readily accessible through a
Walton County Web site that
can be used by the school sys-
tem and the public alike.
Brannon has asked that
citizens with pertinent infor-
mation, such as old photo-
graphs or known locations of
historical sites, contact Wal-
ton County Citizen Services.
Photos will be scanned and
retuned to their owners.
Brannon pointed out that


much is known about DeFu-
niak Springs proper but
some of the outlying areas
have timeline gaps that need
to be filled. Citizen Services
head Ken Little echoes his
sentiment. "The economic
center of Walton County has
been in various places
throughout time," Little said.
"It will be nice to have all the
information in one place."
Brannon also recognized
and thanked other organiza-
tions that plan to assist in
the gathering of information.
The South Walton Tourist
Development Council has ex-
pressed interest in present-
ing some historical exhibits

PERSONAL COMMENTS

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


Editor's Comment
By RON KELLEY

"The Times, They

Are A-Changing"

Recently, I was wandering through a music store and
discovered that bands I had never heard of were making
huge hits. The song titles were equally baffling.
Fergie (featuring Ludacris) singing "Glamorous." What
would young Fergie know about being glamorous? The very
idea is ludicrous.
There was the lovely Beyonce doing "Check On It" with
someone named Slim Thug (as opposed to Fat Thug? This
is a role-model?)
Just the names alone are confusing. Plain White T's,
Linkin Park, Nickelback and Spoon.
Well, stick a fork in me, I'm done. These names and song
titles only make me yearn for the good old days, when mu-
sic was sung by groups with made-up names The
Chordettes, The Marvelettes and The Ronettes. Laugh, if
you must, but admit that those were happier times. We had
The Brothers Four, Danny & The Juniors and the spinning
Platters.
Then came The Revolution, which changed music for-
ever. The charge was led by a skinny, white truck driver
from Memphis who was unlike anything anyone had ever
seen (and will likely ever see). After that, everything
changed. Rock and Roll became a catch-phrase, then a youth
movement and then an everlasting musical genre.
That Revolution paved the way for Revolution II, ush-
ered in by an unlikely little shaggy-haired band from En-
gland named after a garden bug. The Beatles penned 20
number-one hits. Their most popular single was Hey Jude/
Revolution. Coincidence? I don't think so. If anyone knew
anything about revolutions, they did.
Over a seven-year period, The Beatles starred in two
movies, spent a total of 1,278 weeks on the charts. The
"Help!" soundtrack was the first album to debut at no. 1.
The group sold over 107 million records (large, black discs,
which were played by placing the tone arm, complete with
a "needle," into the single groove that covered the record,
round and 'round).
That was the last watershed moment in popular music.
Disco came and went, thankfully. Rap is popular, but it
seems to be stuck in that same, single groove because ev-
ery song has the same identical beat and no musical ability
or talent is required. Any person who can speak in rhyme
(and use a lot of trashy words and phrases I can't even print
here) can be a rap superstar whatever that is.
Still, the names are amusing T-Pain, Yung Joc, Jam
Master Jay, Ice Cube and 50 Cent:
Not that there weren't some strange band names in the
60s and 70s. Remember The Monkees, 1910 Fruitgum Com-
pany and Grand Funk Railroad?
Of course, some things look new, but really aren't. The
Artist Formerly Known As Prince had nothing on ? & the
Mysterians. Jefferson Airplane flew high with the "White
Rabbit," then turned in their plane and became Jefferson
Starship. Then Jefferson died, apparently, and there was
only Starship, which eventually sailed off into the unevent-
ful horizon.
Some band names were very colorful. Consider Pink
Floyd, Blondie (without Dagwood), Joan Jett & The Black-
hearts and Simply Red.
Then came Madonna. The much-adored mother of Christ,
right? Uh, not this time. Then there was the very strange
Right Said Fred, whose name means...I don't know what.
Finally, just to prove that Justin Timberlake is right and
"What Goes Around Comes Around," there was a group
called UB40. They recorded a cover of Elvis Presley's "Can't
Help Falling In Love." UB40. and IB confused.
DoUBconfused2?
In the end, if there was one artist's name that you'd
think I'd like for sure, it would be R. Kelly. With a name
like that, how could he go wrong?
Hmmm. I think I'd better end on that note.

Letters to the Editor


Editor,
It's a culture thang, Mr. Kelley, those new, shiny down-
spouts festooned on the Hall of Bro'hood, and it is caused by a
deficiency in the diet. This may come as a shock to some, but
the disease often displays in those who long-term have been
getting their food supplies at Wal-Mart when there is a real
grocery store right next door.
Symptoms include frequent mispronouncing of words like
"bedroom suite," spelling words like "easy" E-Z, and drivers
who think it diminishes their "kewl" if they use a turn-signal.
Higher up in the ranks of the hoi-polloi, you have politicians
who pander to the notion that education funds spent on the
arts is a misuse of public money, or a CEO of a gas station
chain who thinks that buildings painted orange with royal-
blue trim will suck more dars off the interstate. Maybe it is
time we start naming names. Who is responsible for the cur-
rent color scheme at Hardee's?
I doubt if you can get the tyranny of the majority to force
the painting of those rain-gutter down-spouts white and mov-
ing them to the corners of Bro'hood Hall. Too much to hope
for. It is a miracle that the name of the Magnolia Cemetery
isn't changed so the trees can be sold for firewood.
Anybody besides myself have to avert their eyes when driv-
ing by that ugly, low-bid, chain-link fence? Anybody besides
nie remember the original, wrought-iron fence? Anybody be-
sides me remember when size X-large T-shirts were for large
people and when basketball shorts used to fit?

Editor,
In the past few weeks, there have been quite a few letters
bemoaning the fact that the BCC refuses to pave the roads of
some individuals. If the roads on which they live are county-
maintained roads, then the mechanism is in place to sure
that the roadways will be paved in the order they are placed
on the paving list.
However, if the road way is private or not on the county
listing as owned/maintained by the county, then for the BCC
to repair, grade, pave or otherwise improve that road would
be unlawful. rt is against state statute for governmental equip-
ment to be used on private lands. (There are some exceptions,
based opon emergency, citizens paying for grading etc.) I am
confident that the sitting BCC members are not going to put
themselves in jeopardy of lawsuits by going against the law.
"I pay taxes and get nothing in return"-that dog just don't
hunt. Residents paying taxes get many services, law enforce-
ment, schools, county raodway clearing, tax collector, clerk of
the court, property appraiser, fire service, parks, courthouse
annex, to mention just a few. Every citizen might not utilize
each service, but they are provided for all citizens, not just a
select few.
Some individuals purchase property in Walton County with-
out ever checking to see if the roads are under country con-
trol or not, then want to complain when the road fall into
disrepair. There are numerous platted areas within the county
that are not under county control and until the roads are
brought to standard, then the county is not obligated to
maintian/pave the road. The days of the commissioner grad-
ing roads, giving out loads of clay, etc., are over. They no longer
micro-manage as in the past.
While on the subject of paving, I would like to pass along to
the county paving crews for doing a great job on the two re-
cent paving jobs here in Mossy Head. (Both of those roads
had. been under county control and unpaved for over 20 years.)
The crews did, in my opinion, a much better job than the large
contract company did on Richardson Road. The paving there,
took forever and had many problems. The county crews worked
professionally and accomplished the work with minimum
delays and I am sure much cheaper than could have been
done by contracting it out. Most times, we tend to over look
the work done by our county crews.

Editor,
I write to respond to the letter from Chief Warrant Officer
Bill Jones in the July 19 edition: of the Herald. Mr. Jones
appears to have missed the point of my original letter to the
editor. My point was simple-we won the war in Iraq, deposed
Saddam Hussein and installed a Democratic government.
Our troops are now in the middle of a civil war and need to
get out. We won the war, novw let the Iraqis enforce the law
and keep the peace in their own country.
I respect and appreciate the service and sacrifice of each
of our servicemen and women in Iraq, including Mr. Jones.
We pray each day for their swift and safe return from that
country. We want you home with your families now, not
months or years from now.
As I said in concluding my original letter, "please show sup-
port and respect for our troops in the best manner possible-
by getting them out of the country of Iraq and out of harm's
way."

Editor,
I am truly blown away by the beauty of DeFuniak Springs.
To those of you who are new to our community, you must
take a walk around our beautiful lake and admire the re-
flection of the trees in the water, and the sweet little ducks
that come running, hoping for a morsel of bread.
You can seek your solitude sitting in the gazebo at the end
of the pier, and you. can enjoy the birds singing ever so lightly
as you close your eyes and imagine all the people who have
enjoyed the very same spot you are sitting.
If have a family that is rich in the history of DeFuniak
and had many wonderful years living here. Sadly, they are
all gone now, but the memories still remain of the old I.G.A.
store which my grandfather opened up during the Depres-
sion. I know from other family members and a few of the
older folks in town that he did not turn away anyone in need.
He often traded and bartered with those who may have had
a special need. If you had a new baby in the house and'needed
milk, well, you did not leave empty-handed.
I like to.sit at the Lakeyard and reflect on the past and
wonder about some of the wonderful people that have lived
here in our wonderful small town. I like to imagine my fa-
ther as a young boy skipping stones on the lake or feeding
the ducks, and riding his horse through the woods.
I like to imagine all those Fourth of July parades and all
the pomp and circumstance, and fireworks; all the yearbook
photos, physical education classes, and hours on the swings;
all of the graduating classes at the old Chautauqua build-
ing, in the old gymnasium when Walton High would have'a
graduation class of 10, maybe twenty students. : -
My Aunt Billie Dove Casey Brundage graduated from Wal-
ton in 1949 at the old gymnasium. I wonder as I look out
over the lake if she stood in the same spot after graduation
and threw her hat in the air in graduation tradition just
outside the door of the Old Chautauqua. As I reflect back in
time and imagine all the wonderful folks that have walked
the lake, had picnics on the grass, and attended Fourth of
July festivities, I can't help but wonder if my grandchildren
will be sitting here at the end of the pier wondering the same
thing as they reflect on their life and times here in DeFu-
niak Springs.

Editor,
Congratulations to DeFuniak Springs 12-year-old All-
Stars. I would like to extend a heartfelt congratulations to
you guys! Hope you go all the way. It was a pleasure to play
against everyone of you this year in the regular season. It
made every team better and made new friendships that
should last for a lifetime.
Good luck the rest of the way, Ronnie Bell. You and Murphy
take them as far as they can go. And as a future coach once
said, "Hit the Ball."
Good luck and hopefully, we will see each other next year
on the field.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, JULY 26, 2007 PAGE 7-A

School board tackles budget millage (COMMUNITY CALENDAR)


By PATRICK CASEY
The Walton County School
Board met on Tuesday, July
17, at the Tivoli Administra-
tive Complex in DeFuniak
Springs to receive an update
on construction projects
throughout the district, as
well as prepare for a new
budget year in anticipation of
the 2007-08 school year.
Mark Gardner, the facili-
ties coordinator for the Wal-
ton County School District,
updated those in attendance
on progress at various school
sites. Bay Elementary's gym-
nasium has had its founda-
tion form boards set and
should have concrete flooring
and foundations poured in
the next week.
Mossy Head Elementary
School has had its roadway
paved with guard rails in-
stalled on the bridge and
sidewalks in the area com-
pleted. The floor slab has
been poured for the second-,
third-, fourth- and fifth-
grade wings with the cafete-
ria slab to follow this week.
The Walton High School
tennis courts had its slab
poured last week and will be
fenced in this week. A con-
tractor will apply the sports
coating, lines and netting in
August.
The new Walton High
School will have a parking lot
in front of the stadium pre-
pared for paving as well as
all underground utilities and
drainage installed for the
site. The elevator pit has
been formed.
Paxton High School's gym
has had the flooring installed
and cabinets and lockers are
in place in the dressing
rooms. Bleachers and wall
panels (to absorb sound) are
being installed and the facil-
ity should be finished in the
near future.
The board approved the
budget and millage rate of
1.393 for advertising. Fi-
nance Director Jim McCall
presented the budget telling
board members that if they
would make the capital out-
lay $1.5 million lower, then


the rollback would be less
than zero and the district
would not have to advertise
a tax increase. Superinten-
dent Carlene Anderson rec-
ommended the change which
board members approved by
a 5-0 vote.
Principal posts were filled
at Walton Middle School
(WMS) and Freeport El-
ementary School as Tripp
Hope was shifted from his as-
sistant principal post at
South Walton High School to
take over for Russell Hughes
at WMS with Pamela Jones
being promoted to the top
post at Freeport Elementary
School to take over for Tracey
Dickey.
Board members passed a
revised resolution that al-
lows selected employees to
drive their assigned vehicle
home at the end of the work


day, in case of an emergency.
The resolution applies to only
a half dozen employees and
prohibits personal use of the
vehicle other than commut-
ing to and from work.
Trip requests were ap-
proved to allow administra-
tors and faculty from the
Walton Career Development
Center to attend the Florida
Association of Career Techni-
cal Education Conference in
Jacksonville from July 29-
August 2. The board also ap-
proved Walton and South
Walton's football schedules
and travel allocations for the
upcoming school year.
The ongoing construction
of the new Walton High
School saw a pair of construc-
tion change orders as the
contractor uncovered some
abandoned septic tanks that
had to be removed as well as


q p-


various sewer lines, power
lines, water mains and fire
hydrants that had to be tied
in to the project. Some direct
purchases of equipment and
materials produced good
news as that allowed a $4.9
million reduction to the origi-
nal contract.
Board members also ap-
proved Walton Middle School
as a site to be used for an
emergency shelter for the
emergency management di-
vision, ratifying an inter-lo-
cal agreement between the
Walton County Commission-
ers and the Walton County
School Board. This will allow
Walton Middle School to be
fitted with an emergency
generator.
The Walton County School
Board will hold their next
regular meeting on August 7,
2007, at 5 p.m.

arrested two individuals for
various drug charges while
out on a training patrol last
week.
DFSPD Public Informa-
tion Officer Eddie Nelson re-
ported that on July 21, K-9
Officer James Miller was
riding with Pittman. The
pair conducted a vehicle traf-
fic stop, just before 1 a.m., on
North First Street. Pittman
arrested the driver, Daniel
Ryan Payne, 22, for driving
with a suspended driver li-
cense. The officers then dis-
covered over 21 grams of
crack cocaine inside the ve-
hicle, as well as drug para-
phernalia, some of which was
found near the vehicle's pas-
senger.
The passenger, Reginald
Bernard Durham, 34, was
also arrested. When the of-
ficers attempted to take
Durham into custody, he re-
sisted. Another DFSP officer
arrived on scene to assist.
Durham continued to resist,


and two of the officers re-
ceived minor injuries during
the scuffle.
Durham was charged with
possession with intent, bat-
tery on a law enforcement of-
ficer, and resisting with vio-


lence. Payne was charged

served a white Chevrolet Ca-
price fail to stop at the four-
way stop intersection of West
Orange Avenue and South
19th Street. The vehicle
headed east on West Orange,
made several turns, crossed
over the railroad tracks to
travel east on Baldwin Av-
enue. The officer attempted
to stop the vehicle for the vio-
lation. The vehicle's constant
turning and increased speed
prevented the officer from
safely attempting a traffic
stop until Baldwin Avenue.
The vehicle traveled through
the intersection of South 11th
Street, again without stop-
ping, and traveled east on
Baldwin Avenue at a higher
speed.
The driver of the suspect
vehicle decided to pass an-
other vehicle, a Ford Mus-
tang, traveling in the same
direction directly ahead of it.
The Mustang was attempt-
ing to turn left (north) onto


South 9th Street when the
suspect vehicle attempted to
pass it (double-yellow center
line), causing the suspect ve-
hicle to strike the Mustang.
The suspect vehicle then lost
control and continued to
move east, running over the
curb located directly in front
of Bass Barber Shop. The
suspect vehicle struck a tree
before spinning and colliding
with a parked, unoccupied
vehicle that slid, striking yet
another parked, unoccupied
vehicle.
The suspect vehicle came
to a final rest, directly in
front of Walton Cafe. The
driver, described as an uni-
dentified black male, climbed
out of the driver's window
and fled south on foot toward
Lake DeFuniak. One officer
rendered first aid to the
driver of the Mustang, while
another officer followed the
fleeing suspect on foot. The
suspect managed to get


away. The Walton County
Sheriff's Office and Walton
Correctional Institution's K-
9 team arrived and began
tracking efforts. A track was
detected, but was lost on the
eastern side of Lake DeFu-
niak, possibly due to rainy
weather.
At the accident scene, of-
ficers discovered nearly six
grams of crack cocaine inside
the suspect vehicle, as well
as drug paraphernalia. The
Mustang's driver and sole oc-
cupant, a 17 year-old female,
was transported and treated
for injuries at Healthmark
Regional Medical Center.
The suspect vehicle had no
other occupants.
The suspect was last seen
wearing an orange shirt and
what appeared to be blue
jean shorts. The investiga-
tion is ongoing at this time.
Persons with information on
this incident are asked to call
DFSPD at 892-8511.

When disaster comes, the Emergency Response Division goes into action at the Emergency Operations Center located in a concrete bunker in east DeFuniak Springs. Secure communication lines are in-
stalled so that the teams can safely monitor events, dispatch help and put out information updates to keep the public informed. Staff members report to the bunker and remain there until the emergency.
passes. They sleep on cots and eat communal meals. Their own families often must prepare for storms without their help. We are grateful for the sacrifices they all make on behalf of Walton County.


*:


Pets should be part of storm planning, too. Gather vaccination
records, medications, collars, leashes, tags, food and water for
them. Consult www.petswelcome.com for a searchable, up-
dated list of pet friendly hotels and motels.

tective shutters and removing outdoor equipment that
may become missiles during high winds.
Everyone should stock water and canned goods plus
the equipment to prepare food in case the power goes
out.


If it becomes necessary to evacuate, Emergency Man-
agement will notify residents. The main exit out of
Walton County is U.S. 331. Those who live south of the
Bay should remember that the Clyde B. Wells Bridge will
close when sustained winds reach 40 miles per hour.
Other area bridges may also be closed, so it is impor-
tant to plan ahead when a storm comes toward the
county.


There are four designated emergency shelters in Walton County:
Freeport High School 12615 Hwy. 331 north of Freeport
Walton Middle School, 625 Park Ave., DeFuniak Springs
Paxton High School, 21893 Hwy. 331, Paxton
Okaloosa Walton College Building 2, 908 Hwy 90, west of downtown
DeFuniak Springs.
Walton Middle School serves as a shelter for those with special
:needs. People who believe they qualify for that designation should
pre-register with Cindy Wilson or Christine Bell at 892-8066. An as-
sistant must accompany every special needs person to the shelter.

IMPACT FR

that is where the money
goes, he said, it is used to
help the entire system. "It's
a necessity for the city at this
time," Laird said.
The city works with the
state Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection to en-
sure environmental safety
with the city's set capacities
and growth. Since the impact
fees have been implemented,
DeFuniak Springs has col-
lected $422,000 for water
and $265,000 for sewer, ac-
cording to numbers from
Laird. "We don't want the
citizens that are here now to
absorb the cost of future
growth," Laird said. "We
want to see future develop-
ment pay their share for the
needed infrastructure."
However, these impact fees
could constrain local eco-
nomic development because
of the cost. Bruce Naylor, real
estate broker,, and owner of
Naylor Realty of DeFuniak
Springs, said he thinks that
impact fees hamper real es-
tate development and
growth. He said that impact
fees are politically popular
because an elected official
does not have to raise ad
valorum taxes, even though
broad-based taxing is more
equitable. He said that fi-
nancing infrastructure and
capital improvements should
be done through broad-based
taxing, where the burden is
shared by large segments of
the population.
"Impact fees discriminate
against new home buyers
and new business owners,"
Naylor said. "Public infra-
structure is everybody's re-
sponsibility." He added that
when community leaders be-
gin to consider impact fees as
a means of fund raising, it
can be an indication that the
community underestimated
the actual growth or failed to
engage in long-range, fiscal
planning for capital improve-
ments.
However, Kirby disagreed,
saying, "Impact fees:are part
of planning for grow th i and
being prepared for it." She

added that if a city does not
implement the fees and
growth continues, there
would be a need for services,
but not a means of financing
those services.
Laird insists that since
their implementation, the
water and sewer fees haven't
had an effect on the city's
rates of development and
have not affected the real es-
tate market,at all. "No one
has been overly concerned,"
he said. He said the last
thing the city would want to
do is discourage businesses
from building in DeFuniak
Springs.
Kirby agreed. She said she
has seen no negative effects
on economic growth in the
city since the impact fees
were implemented. In fact,
she pointed out that Govern-
ment Services Group, an
agency that assists DeFu-
niak Springs with research
for finance issues, reported
that a university study on
impact fees showed no corre-
lation between a decrease in
development and the imple-
mentation of impact fees.
Any changes in development
would be because of the mar-
ket itself, Kirby added.
However, Naylor said that
first-time home-buyers, who
are typically low-and-moder-
ate income home-buyers suf-
fer the most from impact
fees. "It is difficult, almost
impossible, for our essential
work personnel, police, fire,
teachers, nurses and govern-
ment personnel, to afford
new housing today," Naylor
said. "Increased impact fees
just make it more difficult. If
impact fees become too high,
prospective home buyers and
commercial developers will
look to other communities
and sites to move, build and
live," Naylor said.
Laird said DeFuniak
Springs's impact fees are
probably less than some lo-
cal cities. "We're pretty much
comparable with other cit-
ies," he said.Currently, the
city of Crestview charges a
water impact fee of $625 for


Dwelling designations and square footage calculations

each residential develop-
ment and a sewer impact fee
of $2,300 for each residential
user. The city has also re-
cently added a public safety
impact fee of $200 for each
residential development.
However, the city of
Marianna charges no impact
fees at all.
Kirby also said, "Compar-
ing cities is like comparing
apples and oranges. Impact
fees are unique to each city
or county based on its de-
mand. You really shouldn't
compare, but you want to
know what other people are
doing. They [the impact fees]
appear to be in line and not
excessive when compared to
other areas," she added.
However, Naylor still dis-
agreed, saying, "Broad-based
taxing, not impact fees, is the
only way to encourage com-
mercial growth, bring new
jobs to the area and keep
housing process affordable so
that our children can afford
to live and work where they
grew up."
Currently, three impact
fees are in proposal with the
city; one for law enforcement,
one for fire rescue, and one
for transportation. Funds
raised from each fee would be
used for upgrades and addi-
tions to its respected depart-

ment. With the recent state
Legislature that is resulting
in budget cuts for local gov-
ernments, it may seem that
the budget cuts and proposed
impact fees are related. How-
ever, Kirby said that it is only
coincidental that they come
up around the same time.
The city had been discussing
the proposed impact fees for


years, she said. Their plans
were in the 2006-2007 year
city budget plan.Kirby noted
that once an impact fee is
adopted, it couldn't be imple-
mented for 90 days, as a no-
tice to new developers.
The fire rescue and law en-
forcement impact fees would
be based on the type of dwell-
ing and square footage that
is developed. Areading of the
proposed fire impact fee or-
dinance was held at the July
23 City Council
meeting."The fire impact fees
seem to be reasonable," Laird
said.
Discussion of the law en-
forcement impact fee will
continue. "Law enforcement
seemed to be a little higher
and that's one that is being
looked at," Laird said. "We
need numbers to determine
that that's a fair value to
place on law enforcement im-
pact fees."
Kirby does not anticipate
seeing changes in the city's
economic development if the
proposed impact fees are ap-


proved. "A large majority of
existing business and resi-
dents would not be affected
by this unless they expand or
change usage," Kirby added.
"We can't state now how it's
going to affect it," Laird said,
referring to the proposed im-
pact fees' effect on economic
development.
Naylor is not the only one
who thinks the fees are a bad
idea. Matthew Falconer, with *
Falcon Development the
company that developed the
retail space that houses Beef
O'Brady's in DeFuniak
Springs, said that impact
fees are just a tax on small
business. For the develop-
ment, the company paid
$52,324.65 for sewer and
water impact fees to the city
of DeFuniak Springs. Fal-
coner said the fees raise the
cost of occupancy.
"So, overall, impact fees
and real estate taxes are
driving business out of the
state, everywhere, DeFuniak
included," Falconer said.

people understood that at
all," Dockery said. "I don't
think they do now."
Dockery said he has the
knowledge and ability to
teach the staff about these
things, but that they do not
want his help. Dockery
added that recently the
spring underwent an explo-
sion of blue-green algae. "The
water turned as green as
grass," he said. When the al-
gae dies, a chemical is pro-
duced that can kill fish,
Dockery said. In the past,
during times of algae explo-
sions, Dockery would pull the
water level of the spring
down and pump the toxic al-
gae waste out to save the
fish. He shared this informa-
tion with the new manage-
ment and they agreed to use
it. However, Dockery said
that not, enough water was
flushed through the system
and that a lot of fish died.
"Mr. Shane seems like a
pretty nice guy, but he
doesn't want to take my ad-
vice and his boss has told him
not to," Dockery said.
He said he heard rumors
saying that he had dumped
chemicals into the water. "I
would never, ever put any-
thing in the water that would
harm the fish or the spring,"
Dockery said. Dockery added
that he would like to have a
nice relationship with the
new management. "I really
would like to be friends with
those people," he said. Many
park visitors have been park-
ing and accessing the spring
from Dockery's private-es-
tate property and he is in-
stalling a fence to prevent
these incidences.
Schiller had no comment
regarding Dockery's offer of
help. "I was told by the new
ownership not to make any
comments concerning. ru-
mors," Schiller said. How-
ever, he said that the water
and fish are fine. He said
that can be clearly seen with
a look into the water. He con-
firmed that, legally, Dockery
is not allowed to be in the
dive shop. A tresspass warn-
ing notification is filed with
the Holmes County Sheriff's


Department that prohibits
Dockery from entering the
area. However, he said that

Local first responder attends WMD training


By REID TUCKER
According to a census
taken in 2000, the city of
Anniston, Alabama, has a
population of 24,276, only
slightly larger than that of
Ft. Walton Beach. Like Ft.
Walton, Anniston's primary
employer is the United
States military, though in
Anniston, it is the Anniston
Army Depot rather than the
United States Air Force.
Nestled in the foothills of
the Appalachian mountains,
Anniston is the sole location
of the Department of Home-
land Security's Center for
Domestic Preparedness'
(CDP) weapons of mass de-
struction training facility.
The system works in such a
way that emergency re-
sponders apply to undergo
the training program and are
divided into classifications
based on the size of the mu-
nicipality they represent.
A lieutenant paramedic in
charge of the Walton County
Fire and Rescue service Dis-
trict 11 (Mossy Head), Ed-
ward Lynn Eubanks Jr., at-
tended and completed the in-
tensive six-day training pro-
gram, one of several emer-


By BRUCE COLLIER
"Uncertainty of
leadership" and "unknown
organizational complica-
tions" have apparently cost
the two Chautauqua
Assembly organizations some
funding for the upcoming
2008 assembly.
On July 12, the South
Walton Tourist Development
Council (TDC) marketing
committee released a list of
16 arts and cultural events
and entities that had applied
for "TDC scholarship"
funding. The list' includes
organizations such as
Seaside Repertory Theatre,
Seabreeze Jazz Festival, and
ArtsQuest. Not on the list
were Florida Chautauqua
Center, Inc. (FCd) and
Florida Chautauqua
Assembly, Inc. (FCA).
The FCC was founded in
1996 by F. Diane Pickett, who
continues with the
organization as founder and
chairman. The FCA was
formed in April of 2007, by
Ann Robinson, who is
currently president of the
FCA board of trustees.
Both FCC and FCA have
scheduled assemblies for
early 2008. The FCC's is
scheduled for Jan. 31 Feb.
8. The FCA's assembly is
scheduled for Feb. 21 -24.
Both organizations applied
for funds and made
presentations to the TDC's
marketing committee on May
16.
In a letter turning down
FCC, TDC committee
chairman John Gillis cited
the aforementioned
uncertainty and
complications as reasons to
decline funding. Gillis' letter
concluded with a


agency responders from
around the country and U.S.
territories, and the only one
from this area, to participate
in the program. "I was the
only one [participating] of
this class from around
[here]," Eubanks said. He
further explained that his
background in firefighting
and hazardous materials
management made him a
logical choice for the pro-
gram. "It would be very much
appropriate for me to at-
tend," he said.
Most of the CDP's training
facilities are top-secret, "No
cell phones or laptops,"
Eubanks jokingly said. One
facility where he trained in
Nevada storehouses a large
part of the country's nuclear
payload left over from the
Cold War.
The CDP provides this in-
terdisciplinary training ser-
vice to emergency responders
in myriad areas of focus:
emergency management,
emergency medical service,
fire service, governmental
administration, hazardous
materials management,
health care, law enforce-
ment, public health, public


recommendation that "this
event be presented again
next year for sponsorship
consideration."
Christopher Mitchell is
president of FCC. Mitchell
replied to Gillis in a two-page
letter, dated July 23. In the
letter, Mitchell wrote that
FCC was not aware that
Robinson would also be
making a presentation to
TDC on May 16, "and
therefore had no opportunity
to participate in the dialogue
or to share with you relevant
information on which you are
basing your decision to deny
our funding." Mitchell added
that "[w]e were never asked
a single question by the TDC
following Ms. Robinson's
presentation about our
leadership capabilities or to
clarify misinformation about
or gani z ationa l'
complications.' We don't even
have any organizational
complications."
Mitchell's letter goes on to
say that FCC understands
"how our traditional
sponsors, such as the TDC,
are confused by Ms.
Robinson's presentations
since May, further
complicated by
misinformation she is
sharing about our budget,
operations and leadership,
particularly when we are not
afforded an opportunity to
respond."
The letter also states that
Mitchell and the FCC's
administrative assistant
have met with TDC
Executive Director Kriss
Titus and Public Relations
and Promotions Director
Tracy Louthain, "and have
shared with them documents
to clarify our position.


safety, communications, and
public works.
"The system is geared to-
wards dealing with weapons
of mass destruction,"
Eubanks explained. The pro-
gram is staffed mostly by FBI
agents and terrorism ex-
perts, Eubanks said, though
some .instructors hold gov-
ernment offices and military
positions.
Specifically, the program
involved live training with
full protective gear in the
presence of actual sarin and
VX chemical agents, stored
along with the bulk of the
United States' chemical arse-
nal at Anniston Army Depot.
Those involved in the pro-
gram also trained in ad-
vanced detection techniques,
and the use of Personal Pro-
tective Equipment (PPE) in
different field situations, as
well as classroom discussions
about the dynamics of terror-
ism. Eubanks said that
firefighters and police offic-
ers are "the front line" of
emergency response person-
nel, and that the purpose of
the training program at CDP
was "to train those respond-
ers so that they carry back


"Please afford us the
chance to do so next year
should someone try to
discredit our organization
with baseless information
generated from simply being
a disgruntled volunteer;"
Mitchell writes.
In a telephone interview,
Mitchell declined to comment
outside of the contents of his
letter. "I don't want to engage
in a dispute," he said. On the
FCC board's "unanimous"
decision to "replace"
Robinson, Mitchell said it
was "like a personnel issue."
FCA secretary/treasurer
Craig Robinson was advised
of Gillis' and Mitchell's
letters. Robinson stated, "the
Board of Trustees of the
Florida Chautauqua
Assembly, Inc. has no
comment regarding this
matter at this time."

with them the knowledge
and skills they would need
[in a hazardous situation]."
This isn't Eubanks' first
such experience with this
kind of training, either. In
fact, he is one of the best
trained local officials avail-
able, having already under-
gone training in response to
radiological and nuclear at-
tack in Nevada and Utah and
a special course on terrorist
bombing in New Mexico over
the last few years.
"I'm trying to get as well-
versed as I can in this area,"
he explained. Eubanks said
his goal is teach his cowork-
ers to have an awareness
level of the dangerous world-
wide situation of the present
day. Eubanks explains that
this is due to the very real
possibility that he and his
fellow emergency personnel
might be called upon, in the
event of a major crisis, to be
dispatched to a larger urban
area. "Nobody is safe from
terrorism," he said. "When
you are aware of what's out
there, it helps to respond bet-
ter to even the more mun-
dane calls we go out on. We
cannot become complacent."
In addition to the afore-
mentioned reasons for at-
tending CDP, Eubanks said,
"We're looking into establish-
ing a hazardous materials
division within the county."
His recent training, he feels,
would be an invaluable asset
should the plan come to frui-
tion.
Eubanks praised the fed-
eral government in its efforts
to train the nation's emer-
gency responders, saying,
"they're doing a great job.
There are dozens of different
classes [the government] has
put out." One of the
program's main emphases,
according to Eubanks, "is to
make people aware of the
programs available for local
first responders," and to im-
press upon program attend-
ees the importance of relay-
ing to the citizenry the mea-


sures to which the govern-
ment goes to keep them safe.
"Terrorist attacks are
thwarted every day, it's
scary," Eubanks said.
Eubanks is currently pur-
suing a degree in homeland
security. "It's becoming a
very relevant and necessary
field of study with a lot of dif-
ferent facets, [including] fi-
nancial, border security, and

Rotary Youth Camp


ignores limit

By BRUCE COLLIER
Somewhere near the
community of Gretna,
Florida, is a recreational
camp owned and
maintained by an area
Methodist church. Thirteen
years ago, the Rotary Club
district 6940 got together to
.lease the camp for a few
weeks out of the summer.
The objective was to create
a different sort of summer
camp, one catering to a less
well-served class of
campers.
The Rotary Youth Camp
offers kids with handicaps -
disabilities, physical
limitations, however it may
be described the
opportunity to fit in, to be
one of the crowd. Camp
attendance is limited to
handicapped kids, ages 9 -
16, and counselors have
experience working with
them, or are themselves
handicapped. However,
attendance is the only
thing "limited" about the
camp.
Last Wednesday, a group
of four Rotarians Chuck
Lawson, Mary Whitehead,
Rosemary Ragle, and Chris
Willcox drove from
DeFuniak Springs to the
camp. This was not an
inspection tour, more of an
accounting. Recently,
Rotarians have been
collecting money to support
the camp. "We wanted
people to know how their
money's being spent," said
Lawson.
The camp sits just off the
road, in a grassy-and-
wooded area. The first
thing seen is a parking lot,
next to a soccer field and
basketball court. Both are
empty, for now. A walk into
the shade leads to four
main buildings a mess
hall, separate boys' and
girls' dorms, and a newer
building, the Dr. A.C.
McCulley Lodge. The latter
was constructed at Rotary
Club expense in 1999.
Rotary paved sidewalks
and provided air


conditioning for the
buildings, along with other
improvements to the
grounds.
Camp director Leslie
Smith greets the visitors.
Smith says there are 29
campers on this summer's
roster, with a counselor-to-
camper ratio of one-to-two.
The camper teams consist
of one "independent" and
one "dependent" camper.
This fosters a cooperative
'buddy" system. The
campers work, together,
serving each other's
strengths and weaknesses.
A walking camper will go
ahead of a wheelchaired
camper to open doors, clear
ramps, and procure sports
or crafts gear. At meals,
buddies serve buddies
before serving themselves.
The mess hall is the most
air-conditioned spot in the
camp. Inside, the kids are

clustered at tables, playing
board games, reading,
chatting, or good-naturedly
roughhousing with
counselors. Counselors
. inside include Shelley,
Lauren, and Jennifer Cook.
Cook is a former camper.
Both counselors pose with
Elley, a smiling girl with a
basketball at the ready.


The ,campers have been
divided into four groups for
this summer's camp theme,
"Islands of the Pacific."
Each group is assigned a
different island Hawaii,
Easter Island (Rapa Nui),
Yap, and Papua New
Guinea. The mess hall is
decorated with the islands'
flags, and assorted. mottos

and slogans, all made by
the campers. Campers
spend part of their time
working on "island lore,"
imbibing facts about their
island's formation,
geography, and culture. A
friendly competition is
encouraged. Previous years'
themes have included
pirates, 'the Wild West,


Japan, and ancient Egypt. ;
The campers follow a
daily schedule at this sleep-
over camp. Breakfast starts
at 8:30 a.m., followed by
three activity periods from
9:15 a.m. to 12:30 p.ri.
Lunch and an hour's rest

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THU RSDAY JULY 26, 2007


CAMP FROM PAGE 1 .B


two more activity periods,
dinner, and an evening activ-
ity period before lights-out.
Activities vary. There's
sports both team and indi-
vidual swimming in a spa-
cious pool near the mess hall,
crafts, and educational ses-
sions with Dr. Robert
McKeon, teacher and camp
sage, known to the kids as
"Doc X."
McKeon calls himself "di-
rector of instruction," and
has been coming to the Ro-
tary Youth Camp every year
since it was founded.
McKeon's background is in
library science, document
conservation, and scholar-
ship, and he has a wealth of
knowledge on many subjects.
He has been teaching this
year's campers about the leg-
ends of their respective is-
lands, as well as islanders'
methods of hunting, fishing,
and. communication. The lat-
ter involves drums.
"It's a quiet competition,"
says McKeon, speaking of the
friendly rivalries among the
four islands. The campers
earn "points" not only by
learning island facts, but by
answering pop questions
posted in the mess hall. The
latter are tests of observa-
tional skill, such as "who is
the tallest counselor?" or
"how many windows are in
the mess hall?"
"They earn points two
ways," says McKeon. "One is
for 'spirit,' the other is for
random acts of kindness for
other islanders. It's a positive
competition."
McKeon says that the
counselors all receive medi-
cal and personality reports
on the campers, but that the
kids often surprise the coun-
selors by exceeding expecta-
tions. He attributes part of
this to the camp's practice of
hosting campers with "mixed.
disabilities," instead of focus-
ing on only one kind. This
leads to cooperation and mu-
tual assistance.
In the craft area, a group
!of kids works quietly at a
Stable, fashioning headbands
for island wear. Among the


supervisors is Austin, sitting
off to the side in a motorized
chair. Austin, a former
camper, says his favorite
thing about the camp is
"mostly the people who come
here." It's a sentiment fre-
quently expressed at the Ro-
tary Youth Camp.
Back outside, a few coun-
selors and campers have
started a small pickup game
of basketball, mostly free-
throws from the foul line. Sit-
ting at the edge of the action
in a motorized chair is Drew,
a fifth-year camp veteran
from Trenton, FL. Drew
watches the game while tick-
ing off a list, of his favorite
activities. He is looking for-
ward to the after-lunch nap
hour "not long enough for
me," he says.
"Did you tell them about
karaoke?" asks a counselor.
. "I'm getting to that," says
Drew.
One evening of the week
the camp holds a dance in the
mess hall. Campers ask each
other out to the party, where
they dance and listen to mu-
sic, sometimes recorded,,
sometimes from an invited
DJ. This year's dance is
called a luauu," in honor of
the camp theme.
"Tell them about the
karaoke," says the counselor.
"I love to sing," says Drew.
"Last time I sang 'Summer


Nights' [from "Grease"] and
'Love Shack.' I also sang
'Don't Laugh at Me.' We get
to stay up later than usual."
At lunch time, the camp-
ers head into the mess hall,
sitting at their respective is-
lands' tables. Lunch is sand-
wiches, fruit and salad, chips
and a cookie. When a coun-
selor puts her hand in the air,
all follow suit. "Hands up!"
It's the signal for silence, and
giving attention.
A short grace follows, sung
rather than spoken, and the
meal begins. Toward the end,
as campers are cleaning up,
there's a small commotion.
One of the posted pop ques-
tions is "who is the strongest
male counselor?" To settle
the question, two contenders
engage 'in an impromptu
push-up match. It's unclear
who wins, but there's no lack
of cheering.
The campers will finish
cleaning up the mess hall,
then head off to their dorms
for an hour's rest. Some walk
the grounds unaided, some
with canes or braces, some
spin off in wheelchairs. All
are talking, laughing, and
completely at ease with each
other and themselves. Aside
from the age difference, it's
difficult to tell the counselors
from the campers. Leslie
Smith says the Rotary Youth
Camp has a 90-percent re-
turn rate from year to year.
"The campers and counse-
lors are best friends," she
says.

Inc., go online to

Girl donates hair to


By REID TUCKER
Last Thursday, Mackenzie
Brown, of Greensboro, South
Carolina, granddaughter of
Harley and Melinda
Henderson, of DeFuniak
Springs, had twelve inches of
her long red hair separated
from the rest of it by David
Armstrong of Creative
SalonSpa for the purpose of
donating it to Locks of Love,
a non-profit hair-loss victims
charity.
Brown, whose hair once
measured 37 inches in
length, decided to donate her
hair to Locks of Love while
vacationing with her grand-
parents in DeFuniak for the
summer, after the chore of
maintaining hair that long
had become a nuisance.
Locks of Love donates hair
prostheses to financially-dis-
advantaged children under
the age of 18 suffering from
any long-term medically as-
sociated hair loss. Affected
children receive the hair
based on financial need. Re-
cipients must provide proof
of financial need, two letters
of recommendation, and
write an essay describing the
need for a wig, much as one
applies for a scholarship. The

areata, an automimmunity
disease which causes hair
loss, is carried out.
The majority of recipients
are victims of alopecia areata
or scalp burns. Chemotherapy
patients are rarely given do-
nated wigs because the treat-
ment is understood to cause
only temporary hair loss,
rather than the long-term
hair loss associated with other
illnesses.


It is estimated that 80 per-
cent of the hair donated to
Locks of Love comes from
children wishing to help oth-
ers their age. Some qualifi-
cations for hair donation ex-
ist, namely, hair segments
must be ten inches or longer,
which proved not to be a
problem for Brown, who still
has quite a lot left over.

Joseph, the patient sufferer


By DR. ROBERT M. JAYE
In Genesis 37 we have told
in the Bible part of the story
of Joseph, a young son of
Jacob. Like our blessed Lord,
when he was cast out by men,
he was exalted by God to be a,
Prince and Savior. It is com-
forting to know that in all of
Christ's afflictions there was
a compensating element. Let
us learn from Joseph how he
was a type of Lord Christ.
He was despised by his
brethren, but loved by his fa-
ther (vv. 3,4). Like Christ, Jo-
seph came to his own, but his
own received him not. What
a lesson to the timid or new
Christian. Persecution may*
come at home or from other
kin and former friends. Re-
member Joseph who was be-
loved by his father, as Jesus
was beloved by His Father.
Joseph was hated for his
words, but honored with vi-
sions (vv. 5,9). What he said
wounded their pride, but they
told the purpose of God for
the boy. When Joseph's broth-
ers were told of his dreams,
"they hated him the more."


The first martyr, Stephen,
was hated and stoned by
men, but God opened the
heavens to his vision. Let us
be like Jesus, Joseph, and
Stephen, faithfully telling
forth the truth as the Bible
tells it.
Joseph was sold as a slave,
but he was a prosperous
man (v. 28, chapter .39:2).
Joseph had no reputation
but was sold for the price of
a common slave. But "he was
a prosperous man." Jesus,
being so poor that he had no
permanent place to lay His
head prayed in John 17:4, "I
have finished the work Thou
gavest Me to do." It does not
matter what low value the
world may put on us as ser-
vants of God, we shall be
prosperous as we please the
Lord.
Joseph was neglected by
some, but still remembered
at an important time. We
need not be discouraged
when those whom we have
helped forget us. The Lord
knows where His faithful
ones are.

He only takes "The Best."
God knows you both had to leave us,
But you did not go alone,
For part of us went with you.
The day he took you home.
To some you are forgotten,
To others, just part of the past,
But to us who loved and lost you,
Your memory will always last.

SDeFuniak wins Section title


By PATRICK CASEY
It took 18 innings, a
doubleheader, a lightning de-
lay, five pitchers and nearly
five hours spent on the dia-
mond for the DeFuniak
.Springs 11- and 12-year-old
Little League team to defeat
Tallahassee Chaires-
Capitola 5-0 and 5-2 to win
the Section I crown and earn
a spot in the Little League
iState Tournament this week
at Canopy Oaks Park in Tal-
lahassee.
', The Saturday twin-bill
,was part of a best two-out-of-
three format that would send
,,,the winner on to the state
tournament, and DeFuniak
opened the scoring as the vis-
iting team by plating three
,:runs in the first inning of
;:game one.
Zach Forehand, who
:started the first game,
Doubled in the first run of the
inning, then scored himself
as Jesse Cosson doubled in
two more to build a 3-0 lead.
The runs were all DeFuniak
;would need as Forehand
;stuck out 12 batters in toss-
ing a complete game for a 5-
'0 victory. Forehand added
the icing on the cake in the
' fifth inning as he socked a
.,solo homerun to left field
!while Kyle Sloan doubled
'with pinch-runner Zach
:;Carter scoring for him on a
wild pitch to build a 5-0 lead.
. Forehand, who had eight
home runs in the regular sea-
son, was masterful on the
mound as he walked only one
batter and had another reach
via error. He faced only 20
batters in the contest, just
two off of a perfect game,
which he carried latetinto the
contest.
The second game of the
day, played about 9(1 n minutes
after the conclusion of the
i first, saw DeFuirlak jump out
ito a 2-0'lead as Zach Carter
singled with one out in the
inning, only to have Fore-
,hand follow with a two-run
shot for his second homerun
of the day and the lead.
DeFuniak starter Christo-
pher Murphy made the lead
hold up until the bottom of
the fifth inning when pinch-
hitter Kyle Mauch stroked a
single after a DeFuniak er-
ror to put runners on the cor-
:ners. Mauch stole second
,,with lead-off hitter Dakota
-Atkinson at the plate and
4two outs. Play was halted
due to lightning at that point,
but resumed 10 minutes
'later with Atkinson lacing
ithe second pitch after the
delay up the middle to tie the
game at 2-2. Atkinson was
cut down trying to take third
base on the throw to the plate
Ito end the inning.
From that point on, the
contest became a battle of
wills. DeShun Tucker bunted
for a base hit to lead off the
sixth inning, stole second,
advanced to third on a sacri-
fice by Tyler Abbott only to
see Kyle Sloan's line drive
snagged by Capitola second
baseman Chris Bartlett for


the second out. Chris
Murphy tried to drop a bunt
but was thrown out at first
leaving Tucker stranded.
Brennan Orcutt relieved
Murphy in the bottom of the
sixth inning and pitched a
perfect half inning to send
the game into extra frames.
Little did the large crowd in
attendance know, it would be
several extra frames before
the contest would be decided.
DeFuniak put base run-
ners on in the seventh,
eighth and ninth innings,
only to run into problems
before any could score.
Tucker reached on another
bunt single in the eighth,
stole second, but was caught
trying to steal third on a con-
troversial play at the bag.
Kyle Sloan led off the ninth
with a drive off the left field
fence, but was caught trying
to stretch the single into a
double on an outstanding
throw by Capitola left-fielder
James McRoy.
Orcutt, meanwhile, got
out of a jam in the seventh
inning with a timely
strikeout with a pair of run-
ners on, then coaxed a pair
of ground balls to his short-
stop, Forehand, to strand a
lead-off single by Atkinson in
the eighth. Capitola nearly
won the game in the bottom
of the ninth after Eric Leslie
singled and tried to score
with two outs on a drive to
the rightfield gap by Mauch,
but DeFuniak executed the
cutoff throw to perfection to
Forehand, who then fired a
strike from the outfield grass
to catcher Zach Burgess.
Burgess caught the relay and
had plenty of time to put the
tag on Leslie as he tried to
score.

recorded his fifth hit of the
contest for DeFuniak in the
top of the 11th. A strikeout
and a pop-out ended the
threat, however.

then was replaced by Tucker
who got the final two outs in
the 11th.
The 12th inning saw De-
Funiak with the top of the
order due up, and deliver,
they did. Chris Murphy
stroked a single to right af-
ter going 0-for-5 to that point
in the game. Capitola pitcher
Ian Daniels, in his third in-
ning of relief work, then
made the mistake of the
night as he grooved a pitch
to Zach Carter, who promptly
crushed the pitch to right-
centerfield for a two-run
homer. Dakota Atkinson re-
lieved Daniels to try and stop
the bleeding and was greeted
with a single by Forehand
and an RBI-double by Cosson
for a 5-2 advantage.
Tucker returned to the
mound in the bottom of the
12th with the bottom of the
order due up for Capitola.
After walking the lead-off
batter, Tucker recorded a
strikeout, then saw his de-
fense do the rest as a
grounder to Forehand turned
into a double play ball to end
the game and start the cel-


ebration for the DeFuniak
squad.
The win kept DeFuniak
from having to return on
Sunday for a deciding game
and ended a three-hour con-
test on a very jubilant note
for the visiting squad and
their fans.
With the victory, DeFu-
niak qualifies for the Little
League Baseball State Tour-
nament which will begin on
Friday, July 27, and run


through July 30. DeFuniak
will represent Section 1 in

teams are divided into pools
of four teams each. (See ac-

Smith ready to make his mark


By CHUCK HINSON
It has been an off-season of
changes, rebuilding, redefin-
ing and reinvigorating the
Florida State football pro-
gram, but junior tailback
Antone Smith says he is
ready to hit the field and has
his eyes on the 1,000-yard-
mark for this season.
It has been 11 years since
Florida State has produced a
1000-yard season, but Smith
is hopeful that this will be his
year. Not since Warrick
Dunn had three straight sea-


sons of 1,000 yards each, has
any FSU running back
reached this prestigious
mark.
It wasn't too long ago when
Smith was ready to pack his
bags and leave Florida State
due to the fact that he didn't
get the opportunity to carry
the ball as much as he
wanted. With Lorenzo
Booker and Leon Washing-
ton now out of the picture
and playing in the NFL, he
will get his chance.


Despite his 2,814 yards
and 44 touchdowns during
his high school career, he had
to wait his turn on the Semi-
nole field. He said that after
he met with head coach
Bobby Bowden, he changed
his mind and decided to stick
it out for another year.
He earned his first start
last season and locked in the
position as the team's No. 1
runner in the spring.
Florida State did a major
overhaul on their staffing
during the off-season, as well


as, adding Jimbo Fisher and
new running backs coach,
Dexter Carter, among sev-
eral new coaching faces.
Carter, a former FSU player,
has never coached, but has
spent several years in the
NFL with the San Francisco
49ers.
The new coaches and the
seasoned players say that
this could be the season for
the Seminoles, and if not the
season for a championship,
a season for vast improve-
ments.


Scott heading to SE Louisiana


By CHUCK HINSON '
When you are that good
and win as many games as
the OWC men's basketball
team did this past season,
scouts, fans and other uni-
versities and colleges are go-
ing to take notice. That is ex-
actly what happened to assis-
tant basketball coach Morris
Scott.


He figured he would be
around the OWC campus for
several more years, but re-
cruiters from Southeastern
Louisiana University offered
the coach a chance to move
to Division I and take over
the assistant coach's posi-
tion.
He was contacted three


weeks ago and made up his
mind this past Thursday to
make the move to Louisiana.
A deciding factor for Scott
was' that two former OWC
players, Walton High
School's Jeremy Dunbar and
Antonio Pope, both signed
with the Lions.

Durant rolling in the dollars


By CHUCK HINSON
Former Texas National
player of the year Kevin
Durant has agreed to a
seven-year, $60 million en-
dorsement with Nike. The
deal is even sweeter with a


$10 million signing bonus.
LeBron James stills holds
the biggest endorsement con-
tract record for an NBA
rookie, with his Nike en-
dorsement of $90 million


that he signed in 2003.
Durant has remained loyal
to Nike after reports said
that he turned down a seven-
year, $70 million deal with
Adidas and remained faith-


ful to Nike. The athletic shoe
giant has been an intimate
part of Durant's career since
he was in the eighth grade.
He also recently signed
with Upper Deck and EA
Sports.

OWC Trustees plan for future construction, potential state budget


The District Board of
Trustees of Okaloosa-Walton
College(OWC) approved a
capital improvement plan for
the college through 2013 that
includes a possible new facil-
ity for all OWC Student Ser-
vices functions on the
Niceville Campus and a po-
tential new classroom build-
ing on the OWC/UWF Fort
Walton Beach Campus,
among other items.
The college's five-
year plan includes projects
for which the college may re-
quest state funding and is
one of the first steps neces-
sary to plan for future con-
struction projects at the col-
lege.
As an item of discus-
sion, OWC trustees heard a
report from Dr. Bob
Richburg, OWC president,
on the state budget and how
a projected state revenue
shortfall will potentially im-
pact the college. Richburg
noted that the college admin-
istration is in the process of
detailing how OWC would
cope with a projected four-
percent reduction of approxi-
mately $1 million in avail-
able funding for the college's
$28.4 million operational
budget.
Richburg noted that
approximately 74 percent of
the OWC operations budget
is for personnel and about 24
percent is current expenses.
He explained to trustees that
the college is working on a
plan that will have the least
impact on students, pro-

grams and employees, noting
that OWC would not limit
enrollment as had been an-
nounced by some state uni-
versities. "We
have an open door and that
door will remain open," noted
Richburg, stating that.the
college is encouraging and
can accommodate increased
student enrollment even
with a budget shortfall. Op-
tions being considered in-
clude a hiring freeze, reduc-
tion in departmental expense
budgets and other measures.
He noted that trustees will
receive further details at
their September meeting.
In other action, col-
lege trustees approved a re-
port on institutional effec-
tiveness for the 2005-2006
year presented by Dr. Jill
White, OWC senior vice
president, and college orga-
nizational charts for the up-
coming 2007-08 academic
year.
Trustees also heard a
report from Richburg on his
objectives for the coming
year. Richburg reported that
the college received state
funding for a joint-use Com-
munity Services Complex
that will include a new
Okaloosa County emergency
operations center, college
athletic center and educa-
tional facilities.
Richburg noted that leader-

By DOTTY NIST
The nest of one of the
world's rarest sea turtles was
found on July 17 in Seagrove.
This is the first-ever docu-
mented nest of a leatherback
sea turtle in Walton County,
according to Sharon Maxwell
of the South Walton Turtle
Watch (SWTW).
"It's always been a
dream," Maxwell enthused.
Lorna Patrick of the U.S.
Fish and Wildlife Service
commented that there have
been no leatherback nests in
Walton County since an un-
documented but "apparent"
nest in 1962, when leather-
back hatchlings were ob-
served on the beach. Leath-
erback nests have occurred
along the coast of Eglin Air
Force Base, in eastern Bay
County, in Escambia,
Franklin and Gulf counties,
she noted. .
The majority of the sea
turtles that nest in Walton
County are of the loggerhead
species. A much; smaller
number of green sea turtles
have also laid eggs on the
county's beaches.
The leatherback is one of
the most endangered species
of sea turtle. Leatherbacks
are also the widest- ranging
sea turtle species. They are
known to swim thousands of
miles and are found as far
north as Alaska and as far
south as southern Africa, ac-


cording to information pro-
vided by the Caribbean Con-
servation Corporation
(CCC). The CCC is devoted
to sea turtle research and
conservation of sea turtle
species.
At an adult weight of 550
to 1,545 pounds, leatherback
sea turtles are much larger
than loggerheads and
greens, which weigh between
300 and 400 pounds. Leath-
erbacks can measure up to 10
feet long. Their diet consists
almost exclusively of jelly-
fish.
Leatherbacks are the only
species of sea turtle that does
not have a hard shell. In-
stead, these sea turtles have
dark gray or black rubbery
skin on their backs, rein-
forced with thousands of tiny
bony plates.
South Walton Turtle
Watch volunteer Christian
Wagley discovered the leath-
erback nest during his morn-
ing walk on Tuesday in
Seagrove. Volunteers walk
the beach daily in the early
morning during sea turtle
nesting season to look for sea
turtle tracks and identify
nests.
Wagley said he knew he
was dealing with something
out of the ordinary when he
saw unusually wide turtle
tracks and an extensive area
of disturbed sand.
Maxwell said that nesting


This is the first-
ever documented
nest of a leatherback
sea turtle in Walton
County, according to
Sharon Maxwell of
the South Walton
Turtle Watch.


loggerheads leave tracks 38
inches wide, green sea
turtles leave 44-inch-wide
tracks, and that leatherback
tracks are approximately six
feet wide.
Wagley said that once the
nest was positively identified
as that of a leatherback,
there was a great deal of ex-
citement among beachgoers
and turtle watch volunteers,
who gathered to see it for
themselves.
"It really lifted our spir-
its;" Wagley said, "this has
been an otherwise dismal
nesting season for the South
Walton Turtle Watch."
The leatherback nest was
only the twelfth sea turtle
nest to be discovered so far
in Walton County this year,
compared with 20 nests for
last year's spring-to-fall nest-
ing season.
"We had 58 nests in 2000,
and the number has gone
down every year since," Max-
well said. The SWTW tracks
nest in all non-state park ar-
eas along the beach in Wal-
ton County.
Maxwell said that due to
the low elevation of many
parts of the Walton County
beachfront, about three-
fourths of the sea turtle nests
identified this year have
been dug and moved to more
favorable locations.
Nests have a greater
chance to remain viable if
they do not become inun-
dated in the event of higher
water level conditions.
Leatherback eggs are larger
than those of other sea turtle
species, and female leather-

"We are one of only ten ven-
ues in the United States to
display this exhibition," said
Mattie Kelley Fine and Per-
forming Arts Center Gallery
Director/Curator Karen
Valdes. "We are very proud
of this opportunity."
The exhibition titled "John
James Audubon, American
Artist and Naturalist" fea-
tures over 60 original large
hand-colored engravings as
well as original oils and per-
sonal items that belonged to
Audubon.
Audubon is best known for
his life-sized depictions of
birds in his work "The Birds
of America." The book con-
tains 435 hand-colored cop-
perplate engravings and de-
picted 1,065 individual birds.
The volume weighed 50
pounds.
Atidubon usually featured
his artwork in dramatic fash-
ion just as one might see in
the wild. His deep apprecia-
tion for all things natural led,
to a lifelong passion for the


outdoors.

from Nokuse Plantation

According to Valdes, the
collection is conservatively
valued at $ 1.8 million:
The exhibit will be at OWI '
through July 26 and has al-

SWMCD to conduct workshop amid citizen concerns


By JEFFREY POWELL
Gail Powell, representing
the Coalition for a Non-toxic
Environment, asked South


Walton Mosquito Control
District (SWMCD) officials
to conduct a workshop dis-
cussing issues concerning


GAIL POWELL, representing the Coalition for a Non-toxic
Environment.


pesticide use in Walton
County.
Powell's organization rep-
resents a segment of the
population that would like to
see less pesticide usage.
SWMCD officials agreed to
the workshop and set a ten-
tative date of Aug. 7.
"A lot of us do not like pes-
ticides;" said Powell, "the
county commissioners sug-
gested that we come to you
so we can address our side of
the issue."
The use of state aircraft to
spray for dog flies is among
the organization's issues.
SWMCD Commissioner
Jim Crawford felt the meet-
ing was a good idea.
"We do many things here
at SWMCD to prevent mos-
quitoes and other insects
from thriving that do not con-
cern pesticides," Crawford
noted. Crawford was refer-
ring to the work his organi-
zation does to clear drainage
ditches, dispose of old tires,
and the use of larvae-eating
fish in areas with standing
water, among other mea-


sures.
A confirmed date for the
workshop will be advertised
as required by law, and the
public will be invited.
Powell's request was made
during the SWMCD regular
July 17 meeting, which at
times grew tense.
The SWMCD is still deal-
ing with allegations that
Commissioner Charlie Burke
doesE not reside in the district
he serves. Burke continues to
refute these claims and vows
to continue representing his
district.
According to SWMCD at-
torney Allan Ramey, the
Florida State Attorney's Of-
fice isi in charge of the ongo-
ing investigation.
Burke has also filed a
defamation of character law-
suit a,;pinst SWMCD Chair-
man ,John McGee. McGee
has called the lawsuit "frivo-
lous" 9Lnd a waste of time.
Burke had previously
raised questions concerning
the salary of SWMCD Direc-
tor Gary D'Andrea. At the
July 1 7 meeting he con-

Is there a light at
the end of the tunnel
for parents of school-
aged children?
Many parents and
guardians are count-
ing down the days
before school returns
and the kids finally
have something to
do.

It seems that every sum-
mer, you can ask a parent, a
guardian, and even a few
school teachers, if they are
ready for school to start back,
and most of the answers will
be, "are you crazy, we just got
out." But there are a few that
are ready to get the new
school year underway and try
new adventures in their cur-
riculum.

For many students return-
ing to the new school year,
their first class will be social-
izing 101, with a study lab in
flirting and gossiping. For
others, their approach may
be a little different. They are
wanting the grades they
need to get accepted into a
state university on scholar-
ship.
No matter what their real
reason for heading back to
school might be, there are
always classes, or at least
there should be, that teach
not only the basic skills and

required courses, but help
broaden the cultural aspects
of students. Classes, such as
drama, art, band, choir, even
classes in home economics
that teach the basic under-
standing of colors, patterns
and the culinary arts, are
being offered.

Many students have their
curriculum already laid out
and already have their
classes earmarked, with no
plans to stray from what they
know, or from classes their
friends are attending. This is
where the parents come into
the picture.
When discussing your
child's upcoming school cur-
riculum, make sure they
have some type of cultural
arts class. Make certain that
not only do their minds get
fueled with knowledge, but
also with creativity that so
many never know they pos-
sess.

find out about their talents
before they experienced a
personal tragedy, like a
death, or being arrested for
drugs, etc. Many have com-
mented that if their talents
had only been nurtured
when they were younger,
they might not have ended
up like they did and been fa-
mous for more than just their
publicized arrest and trials.'
Researchers have found
that if a student, be it in
prep, grade school or college,
has someone explain to them
about the arts and what ca-
reers can be found in a cer-
tain artistic field, we would
see a dramatic increase in
the number of school gradu-
ations and a decrease in the
number of absentees and
drop-outs. This is a proven
fact that was never more ap-
parent than when Orange
County, CA implemented
their "Share a Brush" cam-
paign in the public schools,

the school system.
The project had amazing
results with students who
got involved with painting
murals on buildings, remod-
eling and revamping run-
down storefronts, attending
museum exhibits and gal-
lery openings and even hav-
ing one-man student art
expos. The project accompa-
nied a dramatic decrease in
school violence, a lower drop-
out rate, and a vast decrease
in teenage pregnancy and
drug abuse.

All was due to the increase
in the cultural arts being in-
troduced into the school sys-
tem.
Here in Walton County, the
scenarios are not as bad as
the California situation, but
there are problems just the
same. Implementing a pro-
gram such as the "Share A
Brush" program, could bring
an increased awareness to
the cultural and visual arts
and could be an important
tool in keeping kids in the
classrooms and off the
streets.
So as the summer comes
to a close and the students
head back to the classrooms,
remember to encourage
them to add a cultural arts
class to their semester
course line-up. It will not
only teach them of art in
their surroundings, it could
also help them in their
preparation for a career once
they have leftthe nest.

r said.
- On a happier note, leath-
s erbacks nest between six and
, nine times a year, and
n Patrick said it is "very likely"
a that the same turtle will re-
g turn to lay more eggs on the
- Walton County beach this
season, probably not in the
e same location but nearby.
e Wagley, who has served
- with the SWTW for three
years, said he and other vol-
r unteers will be keeping a
0 close eye on the leatherback
nest. He described sitting for
- long periods last season wait-
e ing for hatchlings to emerge
- from a loggerhead nest when
n the time frame for hatching
was at hand. He missed the
- exciting moment when the
- hatchlings from the nest in
y his assigned walking area
- made their way to the gulf.
r Wagley speculated that
, his "wishing on a star" on one
e of those evenings last season
a might have resulted in his
e exhilarating find last week.

COUNTY
PUBLIC BEACH

ACCESS

PARKING


SIGNS HAVE BEEN erected to mark the entrance to a
new public parking lot from both CR-393 and from CR-
30A across from the popular Ed Walline regional beach ac-
cess in Santa Rosa Beach. The nearly one-acre property
was previously the site of Capo's Restaurant, and is now
leased by Walton County and the Walton County Tourist
Development Council for the duration of the 2007 beach
season through Labor Day. Although it remains an unim-
proved dirt parking area because it is leased, the lot was
cleared and smoothed by county road workers to provide
safer parking for the adjacent beach access.

FURTHER EAST ALONG the beach, the Eastern Lake
Pedestrian Bridge was completed during the Fourth of July
holiday week and opened for public use. This bridge was
designed to get the many 2impoochee Trail users off the edge
of the roadway at the Eastern Lake Bridge and enhance
road safety. Built at a cost of $125,692, funding for the new
pedestrian bridge was from the Recreation Plat Fee Fund,
monies paid by developers for recreational amenities in ar-
eas affected by new development. Under the county's Land
Development Code, developers have the option of providing
public recreational facilities within their development, or
paying five percent of the unimproved value of the property
into the Fund.

The Child Advocate


By Julie Hurst, director
Children's Advocacy Center

It's already the end of July. How the summer months are
flying by. My son keeps asking how many days does he have
left before school starts. My reply is plenty as the children
don't start back until August 20. They will have had a long


located hot summer.
iramar Speaking of hot, it is incredibly warm outside and prob-
ably will be for the remainder of the summer into early fall.
g is to Summer are meant to be fun, but along with the fun can
adja-
)0 feet come danger.
prop- The Emerald Coast Children's Advocacy Center would like
ion of to take this opportunity to share some summertime tips to
J is 34- help keep your children safe.
egard- According to SAFE KIDS, an average of 25 children die in
Gilmer the U.S. each year as a result of being left in a car on a warm
day. According to www.parents.com when the temperature
outside is 93 F inside a car can reach 125 F in under 20
707G minutes, even with the window cracked. A child's body tem-
perature will increase three to five times faster than that of
an adult resulting in a heat stroke or heat exhaustion. Heat
stroke, which occurs in only minutes, can cause permanent
disability or even death. If a child gets locked in a car, call
911 immeidately.
Anyone can be at the risk for drowning. However, chil-
dren four years old and under are particularly vulnerable
and account for over 300 drowning deaths each year in the


United States.
Practice the ABC's of Water Safety: Adult supervision.
Adults need to have eye to eye contact with children around
all forms of water (including pools, bathtubs, buckets, beaches
and ponds) at all times.
With the use of Barriers, parents can add layers of pro-
tection. Barriers include fences, alarms, door. locks that out
of reach of children, self-latching hardware on doors and
fences.
Adult CPR Classes can help prepare you for an emergency
and often make the difference between life and death when
a child is in danger of drowning. Children (at the appropri-
ate age) can take aquatic classes to help them gain swim-
ming and water safety skills.
Regardless of a child's age, they are never too young to
learn water-safety rules and habits. Just as you would teach
them to look both ways before they cross they street, teach
them to stay away from water when an adult is not watch-
ing them. Around pools, adults can keep toys and other items
that a child may be interested in away from the pool or wa-
ter area. Keep rescue equipment, such as a safety ring, near
the poolside. If possible, place a phone near the pool for emer-
gencies.

Practicing the above safety tips will help sure a safe, happy
summer for all. In closing, as always I must remind every-
one that if they know of or suspect child abuse, please con-
tact the Florida Abuse Hotline at 1-800-96-ABUSE.
