fire services approved


By RON KELLEY '
With little fanfare and no
questions or comments from
the public, the DeFuniak
Springs City Council voted
unanimously to approve im-
pact fees for new residential
and commercial develop-
ments. The fees would be as-
sessed on new homes and
businesses only, but not ex-
isting properties. The money
raised would be used to fund
the city police and fire de-
partments.
According to city Planning


Director Greg Scoville, the
fees would be based partly on
the size of the home or com-
mercial property. For in-
stance, a single-family home
would be assessed an impact
fee of $374.22 for fire services
and $188.14 for police ser-
vices, for a total of $562.36
per home. Commercial busi-
nesses would be charged ac-
cording to their square foot-
age, which could generate
impact fees of thousands of
dollars above all other fees,
permits, construction costs


and operating costs.
Three new ordinances
were adopted during the
Aug. 13 meeting, as well.
One ordinance would pre-
vent registered sex offenders
and sexual predators from
renting or leasing a house or
apartment within 2,000 feet
of parks, schools, day care
centers or school bus stops.
The second ordinance
would bar those same offend-
ers from entering city parks.
The exceptions to the rule


would be the DeFuniak
Springs Library and First
Presbyterian Ch urch, which
are both located within the
Lakeyard in downtown De-
Funiak Springs;..
The final ordinance would
involve the $2 surchargee on
top of any civil penalties im-
posed on lawbreakers within
DeFuniak Spri-ngs. This fee
has been in effect for years,
but until now, that money
had been going; to the Walton
County Sherifl,"s Office. With
this change, fines imposed on

Planning Commission approves several projects


By LEAH STRATMANN
A number of items on the
agenda at last week's plan-
ning commission faced no op-
position from either the pub-
lic or the county and were
approved to move up to the
Walton County Board of
County Commissioners
(BCC).
A project postponed from
the last meeting so the devel-
opers could meet with the
county code enforcement
people was approved. Walton
Plantation, submitted by
Ken Goldberg, is a plan to
create 148 single-family
homes on 6,469 acres zoned
large-scale agriculture lo-
cated offofCR-2, east of CR-
147. It is the plan of the de-
velopers to continue the tim-
bering operation on the land
and the lots sold will be noti-
fied that the timbering op-
eration will continue in per-
petuity. Goldberg said the
code enforcement violations


were resolved and a settle-
ment in principle had been
reached. One of the issues
was the perception that new
roads were cut into the prop-
erty, but the developers
poi nted out the road has been
there for 40 years and used
for :'iinm ring :iid logging, al-
though a motor cross track
was created without a county
permit.
AXnother issue postponed
was a 'iquisi for abandon-
ment by Ari Juke Junno, Inc.
rc'i st in tiin' abandonment
of this right of way at the
northernmost section of
North Eden,Park Drive con-
.M.lin, of an area approxi-
matel,y 58 feet in width,
sp:;in ing north approxi-
mately 160 feet to the south-
ern shore of Choctawhatchee
Bay. The site is located at the
end of North Eden Park
Drive on the northwest cor-
ner. At the last meeting, the
county first learned of a plan


to create a small park if the
county was willing to aban-
don approximately 25 feet of
waterfront property. The de-
veloper argued that after all
was said and done, the area
would have a public park and
the county waterfront prop-
erty would be doubled.
Since the July meeting, a
town meeting was held so the
residents in the area would
understand what is being
proposed. County planner
Melissa Ward said the
county's public works was
not comfortable with the pro-
posal to abandon the prop-
erty, as it was not really con-
sistent with the county's
comprehensive plan. How-
ever, commissioner Tom
Patton made a motion to ap-
prove, which was seconded
and passed by all.
Among those approved
items was a request submit-
ted by P & B Management of
Walton County, Inc. for a


major development on 1,743
acres of land located on the
north side of CR-3280, ap-
proximately eight miles east
of U.S. 331. The developers
plan to build 740 single-fam-
ily dwellings, 50 dry boat
'storage units, 37,400 square
feet of commercial space and
an equestrian center.
An application submitted
by Connelly & Wicker, Inc.
for a major development or-
der involves 100 acres lo-
cated on the north side of CR-
3280, approximately three
and one-quarter miles east of
Black Creek Boulevard and
known as the Town Center at
Black Creek. Plans are to
create 53 single-family
homes, 53 townhomes, 294
multi-family units, and the
creation of 302,000 square
feet of commercial space.
A petition to change the
land designation of 6.9 acres

Walton releases NCLB report


The federal No Child Left
Behind (NCLB) Act requires
school districts to provide
parents and community
members with annual school
status reports at the begin-
ning of each school year. This
NCLB School Public Ac-
countability Report (SPAR)
may be thought of as a
school's report card, through
which its progress in meet-
ing both federal and state
accountability requirements
may be monitored: It in-
cludes information on school
FCAT results by student sub-


group, student readiness for
the next educational level,
teacher qualifications, school
improvement priorities and
levels of success and status
on making adequate yearly
progress as required by the
NCLB Act.
According to Dr. David
Jeselnick, thie schools in Wal-
ton County are doing an ex-
cellent job, as evidence by
their perform iance ratings is-
sued through the'Florida A+
System of School Improve-
ment and Accountability. The
additional information con-


trained within the NCLB
SPAR provides school admin-
istrators and staff with the
tools they need to better ad-
dress the specific needs of
their school population and
make their school improve-
ment initiatives moire mean-
ingful. Because, it reports as-
sessment results across a
wide range of student demo-
graphic subgroups, the
NCLB SPAR assists schools
in truly making sure that no
child is left behind, he said.

'--Florida Agriculture and
consumer Services Commis-
sioner. Charles H. Bronson
announced the arrest of a
federal fugitive wanted by
the U.S. Secret Service in
connection with a $1.7 mil-
lion identity theft scam.
The suspect, who is on the
Secret Service's "Most
Wanted List" and whose pro-
file can be viewed at
www.treas.gov/usss/
wanted_soetan.shtml -- was
arrested by Bronson's Office
ofAgricultural Law Enforce-
ment (OALE) on Aug. 7,2007
following a road stop on 1-75
in Hamilton County near an
interdiction station which
OALE operates. Officers pur-
sued the suspect's vehicle
and stopped it after being
tipped off about a motorist
driving erratically and ob-
serving the vehicle speeding
by.
Arrested was Rilwan
Ayatonde Soetan, 49, of Ni-
geria, who, according to a Se-
cret Service web site, is part
of an organized group re-
sponsible for the compromise
of more than 2,000 credit re-
ports.
Soetan provided authori-
ties with a number of phony
names when he was picked
up for driving with a revoked
or suspended license, and
only after he was brought to
the Hamilton county Jail did'
authorities discover his iden-
tity. Seized from the vehicle
he was driving were several
documents containing per-
sonal identifying information
of persons unknown to au-
thorities, multiple cellular
telephones and $6,000 in
U.S. currency.
The arrest caps a busy
four-year-stretch at the
department's 23 interdiction
stations, where OALE offic-
ers have recovered an esti-
mated $23 million in drugs,
stolen goods and contraband
at the locations. Individual
seizures have included a $7
million cocaine shipment,

Sheriff offers new pistol training courses


PLEADING NOT GUILTY to 1997 murder charge, Fred
Alan Mason will undergo psychiatric evaluation.


Mason arraigned

on murder charge,

psychiatric

evaluation ordered


By BRUCE COLLIER
Fred Alan Mason, 45, who
has spent that last ten years'
in a state mental hospital,
was arraigned on Aug. 14 on
a charge of murder with "pre-
meditated design." Mason
was indicted by a grand jury
on July 30 for the 1997 kill-
ing of his mother, Lillian
Mason, in DeFuniak
Springs. Mason was origi-
nally indicted in 1997, but
that indictment was set aside
when a court determined
that Mason was mentally in-
competent to stand trial.
Mason was committed to the
Florida State Hospital,
where he remained until his
release earlier this year.
Mason was represented at
his arraignment by Lenny
Platteborze of the Public
Defender's office. Assistant
State Attorney Greg Anchors
appeared for the state, stand-
ing in for Assistant State At-


torney Robert Elmore, who
was not able to attend.
Elmore will prosecute the
case.
Anchors said that a plea
of not guilty was entered. He
also said that Mason spoke,
at times not coherently, and
that Judge Kelyvin Wells or-
dered a psychiatric evalua-i
tion to determine Mason's
competency to assist counsel
in his defense. This is not an
inquiry into Mason's guilt or
lack of guilt by reason of in-
sanity, a separate issue and
affirmative defense that
must be raised and proven by
the defendant. At this time,
Mason has not offered an in-
sanity defense.
Also unknown as yet is
whether the state will seek
the death penalty in the
event the case proceeds to
trial. A pretrial has been set
for Oct. 18, with a trial date
of Nov. 8.


COMMUNITY CALENDAR)

THE CITY OF DEFUNIAK SPRINGS will hold a work-
shop regarding visioning to be conducted by representatives
of the West Florida Regional Planning Council on Tuesday,
August 21, 2007, at 7 p.m. at City Hall, 71 US Highway 90
West, DeFuniak Springs, Florida.
The purpose of the workshop is to discuss the parameters
of the visioning process and begin the process of articula-
tion of the desired future image of the city as part of its
Evaluation and Appraisal Report and Comprehensive Plan
Update.
NORTH WALTON REPUBLICAN CLUB MEETING will
be held Monday, August 20, 2007, at 6 P.M. The meeting will
take place at McLeans Family Steakhouse the guest speaker
will be Kim Kirby.
GOSPEL SINGING EVERY Saturday night, at the House
of Prayer Church in Darlington, FL., beginning at 7 p.m.
Pastor Wilmer McCormick invites everyone to come.
SAINT AGATHA'S EPISCOPAL CHURCH at 144 Circle
Drive in De Funiak Springs, FL, offers to the community a
new outreach ministry titled "Stillness 101." The Stillness
group meets each Saturday morning at 10 a.m. in the church
(enter at the red door) and lasts 45 minutes.. After -a few
minutes' discussion, an audio tape is played of one chapter
of "Stillness Speaks" by Eckart Tolle. Then, the group prac-
tices silent meditation for 15 minutes, in the manner each
individual chooses.
Scientific studies show that practicing silent stillness con-
tributes to world peace, because inner stillness contacts a
depth of peace shared by all, which is beyond the restric-
tions of time and space. Stillness is world peace. The pre-
scription is Psalm 46:10 "Be Still and know that I AM,
God." The confirmation in Christ is Luke 17:21 "Behold,
the Kingdom of God is Within You." Our mutual experience
is pleasant, energizing, and fulfilling. Everyone is invited
to come, and enjoy this valuable outreach ministry for all.
The Walton County Transportation Disadvantaged Coor-
dinating Board will meet on Wednesday, August 15, 2007,
at 1:30 p.m. at the Walton County Extension Office, 7329 N.
9th Street, Ste. (State Road 83 North), DeFuniak Springs.

The Walton County
Sheriff's Office (WCSO) has
announced a new series of
firearms training programs.
These programs will be con-
ducted at the WCSO Firing
and Training Facility, located
on Triple G Road, just offCR-
1883. Those completing the
Defensive Pistol Course
Level I qualify for the Florida
concealed carry permit. This
t course concentrates on safety
and basic shooting funda-
mentals. Once a person com-
pletes Level I, they are then
eligible for Level II, which
concentrates more on home
defense and other such is-
sues as the "Castle Doctrine."
The Level III course is de-
signed to challenge partici-
pants with faster, longer
shooting distances as well as
decision-making.
Currently, the WCSO has
scheduled three Level I
courses to be held on the fol-
lowing Saturdays: Aug. 18,
Sept. 15, and Sept. 29. Each
course runs from 8 a.m. to 5
p.m. Those wishing to bring
their own weapons should
bring a serviceable weapon
and 100 rounds of good qual-
ity ammunition. For those
wishing to learn more about
what to purchase, the
sheriff's office can provide
weapons in the following cali-
bers: 9 mm, .38 cal, and .22


cal. Cost for the courses is
$25 for materials and prac-
tice ammunition. A written
test is required as well as
shooting proficiency.


In addition to the above
courses, WCSO will offer a
hunter safety course in Sep-
tember, with dates to be an-
nounced soon. To reserve a


place in the trainifig pro-
grams or the hunter safety
course, call Sgt. Casavant at
951-4925 or Sgt. Preston at
267-2000.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR



Editor's Comment
By Ron Kelley


The RINO and I know

A few days ago, I received an e-mail from We The People,
an Ashville, N.C.-based Republican think-tank organiza-
tion, regarding their nominations for their 2007 RINO
Award. For those unfamiliar with the term, RINO stands
for a "Republican In Name Only." It's is an insulting moni-
ker aimed at "a Democrat masquerading in Republican-
clothing."
As a Republican, I have long felt that many prominent
Republicans did not represent or even understand tradi-
tional Republican values. So it was interesting to me to see
who showed up on the list of nominees.
According to the message, "We the People for President
has created a website, www.RepublicansIn NameOnly.com,
for conservatives to vote for their favorite RINOs who have
abandoned certain core beliefs of conservatism, and will
bestow upon them a 'RINO Award.' Americans also have
the chance to vote for special titles to award the contend-
ers, such as 'Most Likely to Have a Barak Obama Poster in
their Bedroom' or 'Most Likely to Drive Ted Kennedy Home
from an Evening Out?' and 'Most Likely to Limo an Illegal
across the Border.'"
The current nominees are Senator Mel Martinez (FL),
presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani and presidential can-
didate Mitt Romney, Senator and presidential candidate
John McCain (AZ), Senator Trent Lott (MS), Senator Larry
Craig (ID), Senator Richard Lugar (IN), Senator Olympia
Snowe (ME), Senator Chuck Hagel (NE), Senator Judd
Gregg (NH), Senator Arlen Spector (PA), Senator Lindsey
Graham (SC), Senator Bob Bennett (UT), Senator Jon Kyl
(AZ), and Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger (CA).
Ouch! Rudy, Mitt and McCain all made, the list! That
doesn't leave us with many choices. As usual, we will prob-
ably be forced again- to choose between the lesser of two
or more evils. I recommend that you choose whichever can-
didate that seems the most like Thomas Jefferson, Teddy
Roosevelt, Dwight Eisenhower or Ronald Reagan.
Can't find anyone to match such lofty ideals? Don't worry.
The RINO and I know we can't possibly do any worse than
last time.


Editor:
Why is it "unpatriotic" to disagree with the conquest of
Iraq? I support my troops as individuals. So, to Bush, I say,
"If you support the troops, stop sending them to Iraq." I
sure am glad Bush wasn't commander-in-chief during the
Cold War. His "I'll-get-them-before-they-get-us" mentality
would have been devastating.
I just learned not one of the,9-11 bombers was from Iraq.
The Iraq people are not terrorists. They are not all peas-
ants the way CNN, Fox, ABC, NBC, and the other propa-
ganda pushers portray them. These people are like anyone
else, with families, jobs, bills, TV, cell phones, etc. when
their children are sick, they don't do voodoo, they have hos-
pitals.
The program of "The Two Minutes Hate," (media news),
almost had me convinced that bombs and bullets were good,
but how is the destruction of cities and deaths of thousands
on both sides constructive? Simply put, it's not. Occupa-
tion is not the same as liberation.
So why are we bombing this country? The oil argument
doesn't fit either.
Could Exxon, Mobil, etc., push us into another war? Is
Bush-so concerned about you and me paying $3/gallon at
the pump-that he would destroy and take over a country?
What about the Saddam reason? That one expired quite a
while ago. So my logic is, why spend billions on destruc-
tion, when it could do so much good here? How about using
it to truly support our troops by improving the VA medical
system? Our soldiers/ veterans shouldn't have to wait
months to see a doctor.
Peace is patriotic. Check out the Free Speech TV chan-
nel.

Letters to the Editor


Editor:
Why does the government, state and county always cut the
funding on programs that help the disabled, elderly and low-
income people? I know that the government needs to cut back
on spending, due to the Iraq war; but why do we, the low-
income people, get the shaft?
Tri-County, this year, has cut back on their transportation
service again and now I can only go to the VA clinic in
Pensacola on Monday or Friday. This is the third year in a
row that Tri-County had to cut transportation because of
money cuts.
How can elderly people come to DeFuniak Springs to retire
if they can no longer depend on this county to give them good
transportation to get to a clinic or VA medical center? I do not
blame Tri-County, because they are trying to.cope with this
problem, but I do blame the county and the state. Mr. Donald
Brown, our representative from District Five, why are you
not doing anything about this problem? We voted you in of-
fice, thinking you would solve this problem and would help
us elderly people. Is it too late to take back our vote we wasted
on putting you back in office?

Lawrence Lewis

Editor:
For 15 years, since living at this address, I have paid $5.88
monthly for use of an outdoor light. I have just received
through, the mail a postcard telling me that "effective imme-
diately," this light is now a taxable service.
Why, suddenly, is this a taxable service? Who decided this
should be so? I do not want to hear the Florida Department of
Revenue, I want a name.
I realise this may only be a matter of pennies, but these
pennies are mounting daily for people on a fixed income. In
this day and age, with so much violence and breaking into
homes and attacks on the elderly, this kind of lighting is es-
sential especially for those living off of developed roads.
A few months ago I phoned our local CHELCO office to
inquire what the charge of $18 under the heading of 'Cus-
tomer Charge' was for. I was told, this is the charge for read-
ing the meter. I will do a deal with CHELCO, I will read my
own meter and send it in to them. What are they going to
charge us for next postage for our bill?
Sincerely,
Wendy Holliday

Editor:
A recent writer encouraged all legal citizens of the USA to
reach out and embrace illegal aliens "because they are only
here to work hard, have a piece of the American dream and
provide for their families."
I cannot understand when liberal-thinking citizens will
wake up to the fact that breaking the law is breaking the
law and deserves to be punished. Individuals that follow the
rules, immigrate legally and assimilate into our society have
no problems. It is the people that plan ahead to break the
very laws of the county into which they hope to come where
the problems arise. There are ample opportunities for indi-
viduals to immigrate to the USA. It has worked for years
and years until a few officials took it upon themselves to
refuse to uphold the law of the land.
A recent visit to the courthouse annex in Shalimar opened
my eyes. There were approximately 30 individuals there fac-
ing charges that required the assistance of an interpreter
who was being paid for with our tax monies. The majority of
infractions were no driver's license, no insurance and fail-
ure to obtain a Florida license. These individuals were as-
sessed court costs and fines and walked out the door with-
out any questioning of their status as illegal.aliens. I ques-
tioned one of the deputies on duty and he told me that he
had seen some of the same individuals come back as repeat
offenders with the same infractions and with the same re-
sults. These people are using our own laws against us on a
.daily basis and laughing all the time. They pay no taxes,
work for payments "under the table," send the majority of
their wages back into Mexico, use false IDs and are a strain
on our resources. When caught and returned to their home
country, they return illegally time and time again, sometimes
with the aid of their own government. (Maps and instruc-
tions on how to evade capture.)
If our current elected officials refuse to address this enor-
mous problem by closing the borders and deporting those
that are lawbreakers, then it is time to put someone in office
that is willing to uphold the laws of the USA. Both of our
current senators are without backbones and willing to ig-
nore the wishes of the majority of the citizens they repre-
sent. When the sheriff of Bay County stood up and said
"enough is enough," he came under fire from all points, even
from some of his fellow law enforcement officers.
I refuse to believe that our nation can stand against the
invasion that has bene taking place over the past 15-20 years.
We must stop illegal activity now.

Angels among us in Freeport


By ROBIN NEWTON
Freeport might seem a
strange place to find angels,
but they are definitely here -
Angel Food Ministries, that
is.
Angel Food Ministries is a
non-profit, non-denomina-,
tional organization dedicated
to providing grocery relief to
communities throughout the
United States. Freeport


United Methodist Church is
now a host site for the vital
organization. Angel Food
works through churches,
such as Freeport United
Methodist Church, and com-
munity organizations in over
32 states.
Dr. Charles Satterwhite,
pastor of Freeport United
Methodist, said, "We are ex-
cited about a food program


that can feed an elderly per-
son for an entire month for
only $25. The food is abso-
lutely first-rate and includes
vegetables, pasta, chicken,
steak, eggs, and a dessert. I
have seen seasoned citizens
well up with tears of thank-
fulness and saying, 'I wish
my mother had this program
when she was alive.' We are
proud of the volunteers who


Sheriff and ChildSafe


offer free gun locks


The Walton County
Sheriff's Office (WCSO), in
conjunction with Project
ChildSafe, is providing free
gun locks to the community,
while supplies last. These
gun locks are available at the
WCSO main administration
building in DeFuniak
Springs and the Santa Rosa
Beach substation in Santa
Rosa Beach.
Project ChildSafe is a na-
tionwide program whose pur-
pose is to promote safe fire-
arms handling and storage
practices among all firearms
owners through the distribu-
tion of key safety education
messages and free gun lock-
ing devices. Since 2003,
Project ChildSafe has dis-
tributed more than 35 mil-
lion safety kits to gun own-
ers in all 50 states and five
U.S. territories and contin-
ues to help its law enforce-

work with great diligence to
help the least, last, and lost."
Freeport U.M.C. takes or-
ders at the church on the first
two Saturdays of the
month. Orders are then
picked up at the church on
the last Saturday of the
month. Menus are available
at the church office or on the
Angel Food Ministries
website at http://
www.angelfoodministries.com/
menu.asp.
Angel Food Ministries re-
cently celebrated its 11th an-
niversary. The program,
which is based in Monroe,
GA., fed 34 families in Feb-
ruary of 1994. By the end of
2006, over 500,000 families
were fed in 32 states.

Policies and Procedures on Retention and Promotion
General Policies
No student may be assigned to a grade level based solely on age or other factors that constitute
social promotion or administrative placement. Promotion procedures assure that students promoted
within the district can benefit from the next grade level of instruction and that those who earn a diploma
from high school have met or exceeded all the requirements described by the State of Florida and by the
Walton County School Board. Promotion decisions are based upon the following:
Progress tests
Classroom assignments and performance tasks
Daily observation
State and district tests
Proficiency in reading, writing, and mathematics
Mastery of the Sunshine State Standards as outlined in the various Grade Level Expectations; and/or
Other objective data


Students who exhibit substantial deficiency in reading skills before the end of grades one or two must
be given intensive, research-based reading instruction following identification of the deficiency. The
student must be retained if the deficiency is not remedied by the end of grade 3, as demonstrated. by
scoring at level 2 or higher on FCAT Reading for grade 3. At grade 3, students with reading deficiencies
can be exempted from mandatory retention for good cause.
Good cause exemptions shall be limited to the following:
1. Limited English Proficient students who have had less than two (2) years of instruction in-an English
for Speakers of Other languages program.
2. Students with disabilities whose individual education plan indicates participation in the state

retained at least once previously.
6. Students who have had an AIP in reading for more than two (2) years and were previously
retained in kindergarten, grade 1, grade 2 or grade 3 for a total of two (2) years..
In grades 4-8, waiver of promotion criteria shall be granted in a manner consistent with the good
cause exemptions outlined in State Board Rule.
Students in grades 3-4 shall pass four (4) or more academic subjects, three (3) of which must be
reading, language arts and'mathematics, to be eligible for promotion .
Middle Grades Promotion Criteria

through an appropriate increase in their Developmental Scale Score on the FCAT
4. Students who have an IEP, Section 504 Plan or AIP that includes reading for two or more years and
tal were previously retained for a total of two years at any combination of grade levels
noted
Cause
10, High School Promotion Criteria

identified as being substantially below grade level in reading in English, but who are proficient in their
home language may not be retained.
The Walton School District has made no significant changes in student promotion and retention
policies since last year.

CLOCK
FROM FRONT
I'd rather see you tear it
down than make it into a
fake Ray said the oi.n a,
clock workiigs and imaoue,
clock (located inside the state
Public Defender's Office,
near the clock) are part of
what makes the clock a his-
torical item. Instead, he of-
fered to donate $2,000 to the
city to help pay to have the
clock repaired instead of gut-
ted and re-worked.
City officials said they had
never had any luck in locat-
ing a company that could ac-
tually repair the original
clockworks. Ray, who collects
antique clocks, said he knew
of many communities in
other places that had man-
aged to do just that and ac-
cepted the city's request that
he assist -City Manager Kim
Kirby in locating such a com-
pany. After Ray accepted the
city's request, they voted to
reject the bid from Destin
based The Clock Corner.
In addition to preserving
the historical integrity of the
clock, Councilman James
Huffman urged the council-
men and city staff to try to
ensure the survival of native
trees and shrubbery
throughout the city. Huffman
said when clearing land for
commercial stores and park
ing lots, healthy native oak
trees were cut down and re-
placed with smaller, less at-
tractive trees and shrubbery.
City staff said that they plan
to update city regulations
eventually to protect the na-
tive oaks and other flora.
Huffman said he was not
necessarily seeking official
changes, but was simply urg
ing council and staff to do all
they could to preserve the

Huffman asked that a por-
tion of the song "Big, Yellow
Taxi" be played, which em-
phasized his point. The
Council listened while singer

However, the spirit of pro-
tection and preservation did
not appeal to extend to the
Chautauqua Hall of Brother-
hood regarding the contro-
versial copper rain gutters
now adorning the front of the
historic building.
City Manager Rim Kirby
explained that the new cop-
per gutters and downspouts
had been erected on the ad-
vice of ar chitect Victo r ow,
man, who suggested that

the original builders had
probably used for the origi-

known at this time just what
material was used originally.
All that is known is that the

Mayor Harold Carpenter
said that he has been inun-

the change and asked the
council members if they had
received similar complaints.
Kirby said she had received
both positive and negative

Huffman said he had origi-

Councilman Don Harrison
suggested that, since the cop-
pei was already beginning to
tarnish, why not wait and see
what the effect would be
when the copper turas

Mayor Carpenter replied,
"I can tell you that I'm not
going to like green pipes any
better than I do the copper."
Carpenter said that perhaps
he had received more com-
plaints because it was well-
known that he does not like
the changes. He indicated his
intention to place the item on
the agenda for the August 27
meeting to try to settle the
issue once and for all.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, AUGUST 16, 2007


urges caution


during heat wave


When the dog days of sum-
mer deliver hot tempera-
tures and high humidity, the
American Red Cross of
Northwest Florida urges
residents to take precautions
against the heat.
According to the Centers
for Disease Control and Pre-
vention, approximately 400
Americans die each year due
to summer's sweltering heat.
Furthermore, the National
Weather Service asserts that
excessive heat was the num-
ber one weather-related
killer, causing more fatalities
per year than floods, light-
ning, tornadoes, hurricanes,
winter storms and extreme
cold from 1994 to 2003.
Everyone is at risk when
temperatures rise above 90
degrees but the elderly and
the very young are most sus-
ceptible to heat and heat-re-
lated illnesses. Heat-related
illnesses can cause serious
injury and even death if un-
attended. Signs of heat-re-
lated illnesses include nau-
sea, dizziness, flushed or pale
skin, heavy sweating and
headaches. Victims of heat-
related illness should be
moved to a cool place, given
cool water to drink and ice
packs or cool wet cloths
should be applied to the skin.
If a victim refuses water,
vomits or loses conscious-
ness, call 9-1-1 or your local
emergency number immedi-
ately.


"Our primary goal is to
mitigate emergencies by edu-
cating the community about
how they can protect them-
selves and their families
from heat-related illness,"
said Linda Biller, Chief Ex-
ecutive Officer for the North-
west Florida Red Cross.
Red Cross heat safety tips
are:
Dress for the heat. Wear
lightweight, light-colored
clothing. Light colors will re-
flect away some of the sun's
energy. It is also a good idea
to wear hats or to use an
umbrella.
Drink water. Carry water
or juice with you and drink
continuously even if you do
not feel thirsty. Avoid alcohol
and caffeine, which dehy-
drate the body. Avoid using
salt tablets unless directed to
do so by a physician.
Eat small meals and eat
more often. Avoid high-pro-
tein foods, which increase
metabolic heat.
Slow down. Avoid strenu-
ous activity. If you must do
strenuous activity, do it dur-
ing the coolest part of the
day, which is usually in the
morning between 4 and 7
a.m.
Stay indoors when pos-
sible. If air-conditioning is
not available, stay on the
lowest floor out of the sun-
shine. Remember that elec-
tric fans do not cool, they
simply circulate the air.


Be a good neighbor. During
heat waves, check in on eld-
erly residents in your neigh-
borhood and those who do
not have air conditioning.
Learn Red Cross first aid
and CPR. "While the above
tips can help prevent emer-
gencies, it is crucial to know
what to do if an emergency
situation arises," Biller.
Know what these heat-re-
lated terms mean:
Heat cramps: Heat cramps
are muscular pains and
spasms due to heavy exer-
tion. Although heat cramps
are the least severe, they are
an early signal that the body
is having trouble with the
heat.
Heat exhaustion: Heat ex-
haustion typically occurs
when people exercise heavily,
or work in a hot, humid place
where body fluids are lost
through heavy sweating.
Blood flow to the skin in-
creases, causing blood flow to
decrease to the vital organs.
This results in a form of mild
shock. If not treated, the vic-
tim may suffer heat stroke.
Signals of heat exhaustion
include cool, moist, pale
flushed or red skin; heavy
sweating; headache; nausea
or vomiting; dizziness; and
exhaustion. Body tempera-
ture will be near normal.
Heat stroke: Also known as
sunstroke, heat stroke is life-
threatening. The victim's

WCHD warns against mosquito-borne illnesses


With the recent increase
in hot weather, the Walton
County Health Department
(WCHD) reminds residents
and visitors to take precau-
tions to help protect them-
selves from West Nile Virus
and other mosquito-born
illnesses. West Nile virus is
transmitted by the bite of an
infected mosquito. West Nile
virus, St. Louis encephalitis,
and eastern equine encepha-
litis can cause headaches, fe-
ver, fatigue, dizziness, weak-
ness and confusion. Un-
treated, such viruses can be


deadly.
WCHD continues to ad-
vise local residents to check
around the home to rid the
area of standing water,
which is where mosquitoes
can lay their eggs, use repel-
lents containing DEET,
Picaridin or oil of lemon eu-
calyptus. Residents should
wear clothing that covers
arms and legs and avoid be-
ing outdoors when mosqui-
toes are most active.
Elimination of breeding
sites is one of the keys to pre-
vention. Residents should


clean out leaves, troughs and
gutters, remove old tires or
drill holes in those used in
playgrounds to drain. Turn
over or remove empty plas-
tic pots, pick up all beverage
containers and cups and
check tarps on boats or other
equipment that may collect
water. Boat owners should
also pump out bilges on
boats. It's also wise to replace
water in birdbaths and pet or
other animal feeding dishes
at least once a week, change
water in plant trays, includ-
ing hanging plants, at least


once a week and remove veg-
etation or obstructions in
drainage ditches that pre-
vent the flow of water.
Monitoring wild bird
deaths can help officials
track the spread of some
mosquito-borne diseases.
Anyone who discovers a dead
bird is encouraged to report
it via the Internet at
www.MyFWC.com/bird/
. Citizens may also report
dead birds to the Walton
County Health Department
or the local Fish and Wildlife
Commission office.

OWC's First paramedic class takes oath to save lives


Challenged to answer the
call to "save lives when oth-
ers can only look on, and al-
ways be a patient advocate,"
the first class of 15 paramed-
ics at Okaloosa-Walton Col-
lege (OWC) took their oathe
of service at a graduation cer-
emony on Aug. 3.
"Graduation tonight is just
a ceremony. Every call for
help will be your next lesson.
Every emergency scene will
be your classroom. Every pa-
tient will be your gradua-
tion," said Steve White, Di-
rector of OWC's Emergency
Medical Services program, as
family, friends and officials
from area fire departments
and hospitals that supported
the program looked on.
To the. new paramedics,
White said, "Trust in yourself
and your education. Your per-
ceptions are more accurate
than you will ever be willing
to believe."
White told the audience
that the 15 new paramedics
have performed "amazing
feats in the past year." He
said the 42-credit paramedic
curriculum involved 1,300
hours of classroom time and
676 hours of clinical training
on ambulances and in hospi-
tals for total class clinical
hours of 10,140 hours.
"Because of this they are
leaders arid some of the best
trained and best prepared
professionals," said White,
who noted the paramedics
are now certified in Ad-
vanced Cardiac Life Support
(ACLS), Pediatric Advanced
Life Support (PALS), Acute
Coronary Care Syndrome
(ACS), Advanced Stroke Life
Support (ASLS), and Inter-
national Trauma Life Sup-
port (ITLS).
In her remarks, Linda
Whitenton, Associate Dean of
OWC's Health Technology
Programs, said the new para-
medics are "real life versions
of my grandson's toys. You
are our action heroes. You are
the transformers for sick pa-.
tients in emergencies. We
know you will make our lives


much safer."
The new paramedic class
includes the following:

Driftwood building permit moratorium fails


By DOTTY NIST
Building will be allowed
to continue on new phases
of the Driftwood Estates inr
the interior of the
arrowhead-shaped
peninsular subdivision
north of Sandestin.
Walton County had
considered placing an
official moratorium on
building permits which
would have affected the
majority of the
"arrowhead," excluding Bay
Villa Court and Drive and
the area east of Harborview
Road and south of Buck
Road.
Walton County District 5
Commissioner Cindy
Meadows had proposed the


moratorium, which would
have run through Nov. 30,
due to concern that further
building could increase the
likelihood that the flood-
prone subdivision's only
entrance/exit road would
flood. The timeline of the
proposed moratorium was
based on that of the
hurricane season.
At the August 14 second
public hearing for the
proposed moratorium,
Meadows motioned for
approval but her motion
died without a second.
Failure of the
moratorium did not mean
that the county had no
plans to address
longstanding drainage


problems in the
subdivision---even though
those plans did not meet
the approval of all residents
attending the hearing, and
others were of the opinion
that the proposed work was
not expansive enough to
make a difference. .
Alan Osborne,
representing the Greater
Driftwood Estates
Homeowners Association,
continued to urge the
county to address a May 14
state Department of
Community Affairs letter
expressing concern that
"development activities" in
Driftwood Estates may be
"inconsistent with
development order
conditions."


Osborne has called for
lakes to be constructed in
the interior of the
peninsular to handle
drainage, as shown in plans
for the property approved
in the 1970s. Privately
owned platted lots nowv
occupy the location where
the lakes had been
approved originally.
The commissioners opted
to leave those issues to be
settled separately from the
main matter under
consideration, the proposed
moratorium.
"We, at this point, have
no control over the interior
lots," commented District 4
Commissioner Sara
Comander.
Meadows noted that the


county is to begin
preliminary work to
improve drainage on
perimeter routes Shipwreck
Road and Driftwood Road
in the subdivision within
the next couple of weeks.
Aaron Warren, county
engineer, added that
Walton County Public.
Works plans to regrade the
open ditch section along the
perimeter roads, realign
the drainage system, and
perform maintenance, on
property under the county's
purview, including cleaning
out ditches and outfalls, to
ameliorate flooding issues.
Warren said that plans
to open up an additional
access or accesses are also
in the works.


Also in the interest of
drainage, health and safety
in the subdivision, the
commissioners voted to
direct interim county
attorney Mike Burke to
make an offer to some
Driftwood property owners
who the county maintains
have blocked a historic
drainage outfall to the bay.
The plan would involve the
county installing a pipe in
the outfall area, repairing
the property owners'
seawall that they had built
around the head of the
Buck Bayou, arid doing
water quality monitoring in
that part of the bay. The
county would also do
maintenance on the
installations.

Creative spirit drives local artist


By JEFFREY PO WELL
"Everyone has a crea-
tive spirt within them as
we were all created," said
Seagrove artist Melody
Bogle. "Artists tend to
reveal themselves in their
creations."
Bogle is the'latest artist
to display her work as part
of the South Walton
Tourist Development
Council and Friends of
Coastal Branch Library
program known as Art in
Public Places. Each month
Art in Public Places and
Friends of the library dis-
play new art exhibits for


the public to enjoy.
Living in a variety of
locations and after a
career as an air traffic con-
troller Bogle moved to the
Seagrove area per-
manently in 1999. She
finds inspiration for her
artwork in the many set-
tings the Panhandle has to
offer. Although she has
worked in different media,
pastels seem to be her cur-
rent interest.
"Pastels have such an
intensity of color about
them," Bogle said. "I just
fell in love with the
results."


Locally, Bogle has been
accepted into ArtsQuest
and has been a recipient of
the President's Choice
Award. She has studied
with well-known artists
and instructors including
Barbara Flowers, David
Leffel, Maggie Price, Bart
Lindstrom, Albert Handell,
Frederic Guess and
Marilyn Simpson. Her for-
mal education includes
studying art at the
University of Arkansas,
Northern Illinois
University, Okaloosa-
Walton College and the
University of West Florida.


This fall Bogle will
travel to Italy with artist
and teacher Maggie Price
to continue her studies.
Even after her many
accolades, Bogle is appre-
ciative of her involvement
with Art in Public Places.
"Art in Public Places is
like having the gallery
brought to you," she said.
"It is great exposure for
the artists and the public
gets to see new art every
month."
Bogles work can be seen
through the month of
August at the Coastal
Branch Library in Santa
Rosa Beach.

Things to do daily


By DR. ROBERT A. JA.-E


Hebrews 3:13 contains j.
warning about living the
(C'iristian life daily. Part of
the verse there reads, "But
exthont one another daily,
while it is called To-day...."
That word dailyy" relates to
the duties and obligations of
all profes,;ed children of
God, whu read the Bible or
not.
First, there is daily
prayer. We cannot live the
Christian life correctly
without this daily habit of,
prayer Someone has said.
" Prayer is the Christian's vi-
tal breath, the Chris.tian's


native air." Thi prophet
Daniel hud a habit of daly
pra ver while a crpt i\ t a.-, the
first mr'inister .of the Medo-
Persian empire. We need
that daily prayer time Mas
well.

Second, we need to seek
daily pardon. "If we .ay we
have no sin. we decide our
selves, and the truth is not
in us" 1 Johrn 1-. \We need
to seek daily clean-ina, as
we seek the Lord at the close
of the day.

Third there is daily food.


Mattihew6t- I1 read-.. "Give us
this da'. our dadi bread." We
canot. li e o'n breid alone.
Wiilei \Ve u,st hiVe fuod, we
must fe,-d also on the Bread
of Life. Other' ie our spiri-
tu;il nature will become ane-
mic. Bc-s.sed ar those who
cld hunger anid thirst after
right eoi.is-Ie-'ss

Fo u-trh. th1:ere ]is daily grati-
tude. "Blessed be the Lurd.
who daily loadeth us withI
benefits" i Psalm 6S:191
Bles- the Lord dajly, not .i.itA
,:,n Thanksgwving Day. What
shall we render to the Lord


for all His benefits toward
Ius" Let us count our mer-
cies, and let the spirit of
gratitude fragrance our
daily life.
Fifth, there is daily cross
bearing. Jesus told us to
deny ourselves and to take
up our cross daily and fol-
low him. Our cross is sell-
denial. God help us to look
to Him every day of our
lives and help one another
daily by what xe have read
above., 'lest any of you be
hardened through the de-
ceitfulness of sin." And
Godbless us, every one

Movie Review


"Stardust" actors better than movie


By BRUCE COLLIER
Matthew Vaughn's
"Stardust" follows a familiar
formula, not so much for a
fantasy movie, but for mak-
ing a fantasy movie. A lot of
it has to do with how one
spends. Special effects -
spend big. Star names at
least for the villains and
cameo roles ditto. Spend
less on lesser-knowns for the
hero and heroine. Last of all,
buy British. Actors, that is,
for the bulk of the cast.
They're generally cheaper,
and hey, they can make even
knock-knock jokes sound like


the Sermon on the Mount.
So it is with "Stardust."
Based on a novel by Neil
Gaiman, who also co-wrote
the screenplay, the film stars
Charlie Cox, who is, British,
and Claire Danes, who is
not. Like Michelle Pfieffer
and Robert DeNiro the
film's star power duo -
Danes has a come-and-go
British accent. The accent is
doubtless dictated in part by
the writing. The novelist, di-
rector, and screenwriters are
all Brits. Understandably,
they write like Brits. Brit-
speak,'spoken by Brits,


works. Spoken by well-inten-
tioned American actors, it re-
sembles something you'd
hear from those costumed
role-players who frequent
"Lord of the Rings" fan con-
,ventions. You know "Stand
you back! I be Duldreck
Dragoriflayer, Guardian of
the Scarlet Rhombus!"
To its credit, "Stardust"
veers toward- comedy. There's
plenty of droll, Montyl
Pythonesque banter from the
supporting characters, in-
cluding David Kelly, Rupert
Everett, Ricky Gervais,


Melanie Hill, and Dexter
Fletcher, all U.K. players.
The story seems vaguely
familiar, but I'm not versed
enough in the fantasy genre
to say to what. Our, hero is
Tristan (Cox). Desperate to
impress an unworthy lady, he'
runs across a wall to fetch
her a falling star. In crossing
the.wall, he crosses into a
fantasy. kingdom embroiled
in a dynastic war over which
of seven royal princes will
succeed as king. Overlaying
this are the attempts of a trio
of sorceresses led by Lamia
(Pfeiffer) to recapture their


youth and power. .Daries
plays Yvaine, the personifi-
cation of the falling star.
DeNiro plays one. of the
oddest roles of his career -
which you'll recall includes.
Vito Corleone, Lucifer and
the Frankenstein monster -
as the piratical, closeted
Captain Shakespeare.
The plot has more twists
and turns than a meeting of
the Walton County Planning
Commission, but it does
make it to a full-strength
fairy tale resolution. How-
ever, unlike "Lord of the


Rings" or "Chronicles of
.Narnia," there doesn't seem
to be much of real importance
at stake here.After two hours
and eight minutes of slick
CGI, non-compelling charac-
ters in swanky costumes, and
seen-it-before fights and
chases, "Stardust" doesn't so
much end as just come to a
stop. Like this review. Wait
for the DVD. No hurry.
P.S. Peter O'Toole has a
cameo and Ian McKellen -
who sounds a lot like Peter
O'Toole narrates. Still no ci-
gar. *


Benefit yard sale scheduled


A benefit yard sale has
been scheduled for Paula
Hamilton, who suffers a mul-
tiple of diseases of the heart
and must seek treatment in
Texas. The treatment and
hospital is covered because it
is research, but she will be
responsible for the expenses
of transportation, food and


lodging when not in the hos-
pital. Friends are helping to
raise the funds by having a
yard sale and car wash.
The yard sale will be held
at 16784 Hw.y 331 south in
Freeport (Pilock Corpora-
tion) and the car wash will
be held at the same location


or Kelley's Grocery Store in
Freeport. The yard sale will
go 7 a.m. till 1 p.m. August
18-19. Car wash would be the
same hours.
These yard sales and car
washes will be held as long as
the funding is needed for
these trips. Anybody wanting


to donate items for the yard
sale is welcome to do so, also
if anybody would like to
make a monetary donation,
they can drop it off at the
yard sale, car wash or mail
to P. O. Box 865 Freeport, FL,
Should there be any ques-
tions, call 850-428-9356.

In Loving Memory Of

Devan Theo Dockery


Born December 18, 1955
Flint, Michigan
Entered Into Rest
August 13,2007

God saw he was getting tired
And a cure was not to be,
So He put His arms around him
And whispered, "Come with Me."
Although we loved him dearly
We could not make him stay.
A golden heart stopped beating
Hard working hands to rest,
God broke our hearts
to prove to us
He only takes the best.

Beggin'for Beckham


By CHUCK HINSON
Soccer icon David
Beckham made his American
debut last Thursday evening
with the L.A. Galaxy soccer
team. In his first U.S. game,
he couldn't help pull out the
win and the team fell to the
Washington D.C. United, 1-
0.
After joining team Galaxy
earlier last month, Beckham
not only had Galaxy fans in
a wild frenzy, with flash-


bulbs popping every time the
32-year-old British player
touched the soccer ball, but
also fans in Washington,
cheering his name and want-
ing a shot of the newest Cali-
fornia superstar.

Despite much hype, he was
unable to help the team pull
out the victory and get their
second straight shut-out. The
team now has a 3-6-5 season
record, the second-poorest


record in the soccer league.
But fans both in L.A. and
Washington' did not mind the
rain and downpours that
took place throughout the
game, and it did not dampen
the sell-out crowd of 45,000
at :RFK Stadium.
The game's only score came
from United's player
Luciano Emilio. Beckham,
who played the final 21 min-
utes of the game, was unable
to pop one in for the Galaxy.

I k







S- ; ,d by the thoughts and
'. ., fI:h,,,*s of Mr. WillRodgers
S. /I i.' by Misty Brock
Our story begins many years before, When you were barely 15;
And I was just 17 and an immature boy,
Both too shy to understand the feelings that we shared.
I knew from the moment our eyes met, that you were my eternity;
Wrapped in that beautiful smile,
I knew that I would love you until the day I died.
As fate would have it, the Navy called me away;
And you began your life with someone new,
The distance between us just continued to grow.
As the years passed by, and our lives took us down different paths;
My thoughts always seemed to return to the one that got away,
To my beautiful Jackie, my eternity.
To my surprise and good fortune, on a summer day in 1978;
I was blessed with a chance to win you back,
A chance that I would not let pass.
We knew each other from the moment our eyes met,'
That day at Mamie's Cafe;
The conversation seemed to be endless, it lasted well into the night.
Only a short time later, I made you my bride;
To have and to hold, Together we were as one.
We had our ups, and our fair share of downs;
But through them all, we faced them hand-in-hand.
Our love was a blessing, it was a Miracle;
You were my forever, you, my eternity.
But just as things seemed to be getting even better,
On a very hot day in July; The good Lord called, And took you away.
I find myself lost, Not knowing what to do;
You were my life, my every waking moment.
The days seem longer, since you have been gone;
Some pass quicker than others, and some seem to drag on and on.
I can still feel your presence around me,
Your smell still lingers in the walls;
Yesterday I swear, I saw. you in my chair.
I just want you to know, wherever you are;
That you still mean the world to me, you are still my Sweet Pea..
I know I did not always say it, I know I did,not always show it;
But honey, you were always the person that I wanted you to be.
Jackie, my dear, I have loved you my entire life;
I love you still, and I can't wait to be by your side again.
Jackie, I can't wait to resume our dream of eternity.
This poem is sent in memory of a very special and beloved woman.
Glenda Jacqueline Rodgers (October 1, 1937 July 30, 1997) was the
wife of Will Rodgers, mother of Avery and Mike Stanley, and the "other
Granny" of Tim Stanley. She is missed by all of those who knew her, and
shared in the joy that she brought to this world. Since her death in 1997,
she has since been blessed with a granddaughter, Jacqueline Stanley, by
Mike and Biddie Stanley. She has also been blessed with a great-grand-
son who was given the name that she had dreamed of: Joshua Corbin
Stanley, by Tim and April Stanley.
On a personal note from the author (her ex-grahddaughter-in-law, Misty
Brock), I would like to say that I am honored to have been selected to
write these words. I have been touched by the love that "Other Granny"
was so willing to give. She saved my life in so many different ways, and I
could not think of a better way to repay her than by writing these words.
She brought brightness to this world that cannot be replaced. She will be
sorely missed forever.
The family would like to take this opportunity to thank all the people:
friends, neighbors, and acquaintances that shared in her life. She loved
everyone, and wanted nothing but happiness for all of those around her.
* "Other Granny," we miss you and thank you for blessing us with your
love and understanding, your caring and teaching, your encouragement
and your spirit. We miss you.
Love, Will Rodge. the Rodgers and Stanley Family

By DOTTY NIST
The South Walton Fire
District (SWFD) proposed,
budget for 2007-08 would not,
only reduce the millage rate
but cut the amount of taxes
collected, resulting in sav-
ings to taxpayers. ,
SWFD Chief Rick Talbert,
expressed confidence that
the proposed budget would
still allow the fire district to
operate efficiently and "meet
the needs of citizens and visi-
tors."
Talbert took the helm as
SWFD chief 90 days ago. On
Aug. 9, he presented the pro-
posed budget in a public
workshop.
d "I am pleased to present
you with a budget that is rea-
sonable, demonstrates good
stewardship of taxpayer dol-
lars, and' balances the re-
quirements of the SWFD
with the cost to support our
efforts," Talbert said.
Revenue from ad valorem
taxes paid by homeowners in
the 84-square-mile special
district is the major source of
funding for the SWFD. Prior'
to last year, for a nine-year
period the SWFD millage
rate had remained at 0.83.
mills. This was the rate set
when voters approved a
change from flat rate to ad
valorem funding for the fire
district. A reduction to 0.80
mills was approved for the
| 2006-07 fiscal year.
However, resulting from
E an increase in property val-
ues in the district, ad valo-
rem tax collections still ex-
ceeded by 19.3 percent the
level that would have oc-
curred with the "roll-back"
millage rate, the rate that
would have kept ad valorem
tax revenue at the same level
as the year before.
The 2007 Florida Legisla-
n ture tax reform rollback plan
zs for special taxing districts
n calls for a reduction in taxes
r. to 2006-07 levels, along with
an additional 3-percent re-
duction. Based on these'
guidelines, the maximum
SWFD millage rate for 2007-
- 08 would be 0.80, resulting
e in an ad valorem revenue of
$12.6 million.
Instead, the SWFD is, pro-
it posing a millage rate of 0.70
k for the new fiscal year, gen-
erating an ad valorem rev-
enue of $10.5 million. Brian
Flanagan, SWFD financial
officer, said the tax reduction
will provide a modest savings
. of $30 to $50 per year for a

Walton's tourism


impact estim ated



at $1 billion


By DOTTYNIST
For Walton County tour-
ism, last week was a week "to
wear shades," due to several
glowing revelations.
First came the announce-
ment that Kriss Titus, execu-
tive director for the South
Walton Tourist Development
Council (TDC) for the past
eight years, has been tapped
to chair the Florida Associa-
tion of Convention and Visi-
tors Bureaus (FACVB) begin-
ning in September. In that
post, she will provide leader-
ship for tourism organiza-
tions throughout the state.
Titus also announced on
August 8 that TDC has re-
cently received accreditation
from Destination Marketing
Association International
(DMAI), the world's largest
association of convention and
visitor's bureaus. Of the
association's 625 destination
management organizations
all over the world, the TDC
is one of just 27 that have
achieved that status through
DMAI's accreditation pro-
gram.
DMAI is a 90-year-old or-
ganization that provides edu-
cational resources plus net-
work and marketing oppor-
tunities to its members, who
include tourism profession-
als, tourism industry part-
ners, students and educa-
tors.
DMAI's accreditation pro-
gram was launched in Janu-
ary to set standards for ex-
cellence in the destination
marketing arena. Most ac-
credited organizations are
found in areas of relatively
high population, in contrast
with sparsely populated
south Walton County. Two
other recently accredited
DMAI members are
VisitRochester, Rochester,
New York's destination mar-
keting organization, and the
Puerto Rico Convention Bu-
reau.

The TDC plans to provide a detailed present

sioners meeting, which is scheduled for 4 p.m. a
the Walton County Courthouse in DeFunial
Springs.


hard work for securing this
accreditation for the tourism
council, calling the approval
"a fabulous compliment to
the TDC and our staff."
The most compelling hews
of all came in a report by Rob-
ert Gray of Strategic Plan-
ning Group, Inc. The econom-
ics, planning and develop-
ment consulting firm had
been tasked with updating
earlier reports measuring
the economic impact of tour-
ism in Walton County.
Among his findings, Gray
commented that Walton
County is "unique in the
state" because most of the
units available for visitors
are homes as opposed to ho-
tel and motel rooms. He re-
vealed that 61 percent of all
residential properties in the


county is non-homesteaded


Gray noted that Walton
County is having a "very
good year" for tourism, esti-
mating visitation to be from
13-15 percent higher this
year than last. The Strategic
Planning Group analysis put
the current economic impact
of tourism in Walton County
at $1 billion, based on the
most recent (2006) data.
Titus commented that a
previous study on tourism's
economic impact by the Haas
Center, based on 2003 data,
had reported a $685 million
impact, evidencing substan-
tial growth in this facet of the
county's economy in just
three years.
Gray noted that tourism

typical household in the dis-
trict.
The new fiscal year bud-,
get provides for expenditures
of $8.6 million for personnel,
$1.7 million for operating ex-
penses, $816.000 for capital1
outlay, and $410,000 for debt
service. Total spending for
2007-08 will be reduced to
$11.6 as compared with $13.3
million for the current yea.
Still, 10 personnel are to
be added during 2007 and
2008. These:will include six
firelighter/paramedics, tw,o
dispatchers, a supervisor/co-
ordinator for the dispatch
program, and an administra-
tive assistant. Total yearly
cost for the new personnel
will be $363.480.
The budget provides a
$3.3 million contingency re-
serve that would allow the
fire district to be self-suffi-
cient with regard to, fuel,
power and payroll for 120
days in the event of.an emer-
gency. The SWFD goal is to
increase that to 180 days as'
part of the organization's
five-year plan.
Regarding national pro-
fessional standards for fire
departments, including re-
sponse times arid number of
personnel per response,
Talbert said it remains the
goal of the SWFD to achieve-
those standards.
"We continue to strive to-
ward that," he said.
Talbert was aware of
"gaps" in the SWFD service
area, which comprises 40
percent of state. forest land.
A goal for the future is to add
two additional stations to the
current five, and the SWFD
is investigating the possibil-
ity of leasing surplus state
land for these stations.
Additional personnel and
equipment are part of the
SWFD five-year plan. Rather
than trying to reach those,
goals right away, Talbert
highlighted the need to "or-
chestrate" growth so that
station space would be avail-
able to house additional per-
sonnel, equipment and ve-
hicles.
The first of two required
public hearings on the SWFD
proposed 2007-08 budget will
take place on Sept. 12 and
will be publicly advertised.
Information on the proposed
budget and budget hearings
is available from the South
Walton Fire District at 267-
1298.

Toscana Place




moves forward


By LEAH STRATMANN
Toscana Place, a project
proposed for a 1.27-acre par-
cel of land located on the
south side of CR-30A and
Eastern Lake Road was re-
designed and resubmitted af-
ter the project failed to gain
approval to move forward at
the June meeting of the Wal-
ton County Planning Com-
mission.. At issue at the time
was the developer's proposal
of a project with eight units,
which was deemed incompat-
ible with the surrounding
neighborhood.

However, developer and
landowner Jon LaPlante,
with the engineering firm of
Emerald Coast Associates,
redesigned the project, re-
ducing the number of units
to six, 3,000-square foot
units.
Dean Burgis of Emerald
Coast Associates said, "We
have reworked this to make
it more compatible. We re-
duced density by 25 percent
to six units. In our opinion
this makes the project more
compatible with the immedi-
ate area as well as the neigh-
borhood. We have removed
the pool, which increases the
green space and added small
splash pools instead. We are
not asking for any vari-
ances," he concluded.
"Whatever we do here we
want to make it a nice devel-
opment. We don't want any-
thing that blocks the view of
the Gulf of Mexico. We intend


for them to be single-family
homes," noted LaPlante. He
also said any further reduc-
tion in density would make
the project unfeasible finan-
cially.
Citizen Dennis Riddle said
the project was too dense for
the neighborhood. "Is it com-
patible to have six when
neighbors feel three is the
right number? It is planned
to have two parking spaces
per unit. Grayton Beach re-
quires six spaces for .each
unit over 3,000 square feet.
The site plan shows 10-foot
setbacks, which is consistent
with multi-family units. It
should be limited to three
units to comply with neigh-
borhood."
Burgis said the Grayton
Beach requirement does not
apply here and the develop-
ers plan on having covered
off-street parking for over-
flow vehicles.
Fay Riddle said, "Neigh-
bors don't want this project.
The three- story structures
are not compatible with
other homes. My home is a
two-story home. The archi-
tecture is alien to the sur-
rounding area," she said.
Sea Watch resident Bill
Wright said, "The graphic as
shown is flawed. The project
needs to be redesigned. The
density is too dense and the
entrance to this development
is a traffic nightmare. I echo
the sentiments of the lady
who spoke before me. If the
developer paid too much


money for this property, it is
not our concern or our prob-
lem."
Certified planner Buddy
Page, speaking on behalf of
the applicant, said the new
design provides for more veg-
etation and the project was
more compatible than the
previous design.

Speaking for the county,
Jason Bryan said the devel-
oper had done a good job of
meeting with the county and
discussing the project and
noted that permits from the
Florida Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection
(FDEP) and the Coastal Con-
struction Control Line
(CCCL) permits still needed
to be secured.
Pat Blackshear noted the
county was concerned about
the proposed swimming pool.
"The vegetation toward 30A
is really beautiful coastal
scrub and we wanted it pro-
tected to the maximum ex-
tent possible. They have
made an effort to make it feel
more like the single-family
structures around it."
Commissioner Tom Terrell
said, "It appears to be they
have done exactly what the
county has asked of them-
and done a commendable job.
I understand the concerns of
the people who live around
them and those aspects have
been answered. I make a mo-
tion subject to the conditions
staff has placed upon them."
The motion passed.

MORE PARKING' spaces for beachgoers are planned at this popular public beach access
in Seagrove. (Photo .by Dotty Nist)


San Juan access


parking may increase


By DOTTY NIST
A small group of residents
applauded plans to enhance
parking at San Juan Beach
Access in Seagrove, and the
plans also got a stamp of ap-
proval fromthe new Walton
County Beach Management
Committee last week.
The South Walton Tourist
Development Council (TDC)
had scheduled a workshop in
conjunction with the Aug. 9
committee meeting in order
to gather public input on the
parking improvement plans.
The committee is the re-
sult of the recent combining
of two TDC advisory commit-
tees, the Beach Improve-
ments Committee and the
Beach Nourishment Com-
mittee.
Parking for the TDC-
maintained public access is
at the south end of San Juan
Avenue. As of now, several
parking spaces are desig-
nated at the end of the street,
but other areas of the south
end of the street are also
used by beachgoers for park-.
ing.
Brad Pickel, TDC beach
management consultant, dis-
played plans to add approxi-


The TDC hopes to have the parking improve-
ments completed by spring 2008 or summer at the
latest.


mately another 19-21 park-
ing spaces within the same
area that is currently being
used for parking in conjunc-
tion with the access.
Pickel said the spaces
would be designated "where
the existing pavement is"
and would help organize
now-haphazard vehicle park-
ing for the access without ex-
panding it north or south. He
emphasized that no parking
is planned seaward of the
.Coastal Construction Con-
trol Line. A stormwater
treatment feature is also
planned for the center of the
parking area.
The TDC hopes to have
the parking improvements
completed by spring 2008 or
summer at the latest. How-
ever, the plans will still need
approval by the full TDC
board and the Walton County
Board of County Commis-
sioners. Construction would
be funded through tourism
bed tax dollars.
Pickel said the proposed


work is part of an effort to
provide additional parking
for the beach-going public,
particularly in the area of the
planned 12.9-mile long large-
scale beach restoration
project along CR-30A. Grant
funding for the project is tied
to the availability of public
parking for beachgoers
within a one-mile distance
from public restrooms.
Pickel added that Walton
County is 30 days into the ap-
plication procedure with the
state in connection with the
project, which would be Wal-
ton County's second large-
scale beach restoration
project. The public can access
updated information on the
status of the project at the
Web site
www.proteetwaltoncounty
beaches.com.
The Beach Management
Committee's next meeting is
scheduled'for 8'30 a.m. on
Sept. 13 at the lTDC office.
Residents and property own-
ers are encouraged to attend.


By LEAH STRATMANN
Emerald Bay Develop-
ment Corporation holds a de-
velopment of regional impact
(DRI) permit to develop, in
two phases, land north and
south of U.S. 98. The current
permit will expire in Novem-
ber 2007 and the developers
were asking for an extension
of the expiration date to No-
vember 30,2012 and a build-
out extension for phase 1 and
2 of tract 1 until November
30, 2010. The entire project
consists of 177 acres of land
zoned coastal center and lo-
cated in Walton and.
Okaloosa Counties.

Current residents of Em-
erald Bay were opposed to
any extension. Brenda Bailey


wanted the developer to
stipulate that no apartment
buildings would be con-
structed in the development.
Kevin Johnson said, "We
chose Emerald Bay because
of the covenants and restric-
tions and the fact that the
residences were single-fam-
ily. We received no notice of
this meeting. This room
would be packed if people
had known about this meet-
ing. We feel the developer
has been reactive rather
than proactive. There is
equipment at the end of a
residential cul-de-sac just sit-
ting there. At Emerald Bay,
a project was started by the
pool that failed to be com-
pleted and the trailer and so
forth still sits there. I am op-

BUTLER ELEMENTARY SCHOOL invites students and
parents to visit the school and meet their teachers for the
upcoming school year on Friday, August 17. Kindergarteners
are invited to a "sneak peek" from 8:30-10:30 a.m. Students
in grades 1-5 may visit their classrooms between 1 and 2:30
p.m. School begins on Monday, August 20, 2007.





SWHS hosts student

orientation


South Walton High School
will be hosting a student ori-
entation on Aug. 17, from 1
to 3 p.m. in the school's audi-
torium. This orientation
is designed for entering
freshmen and students new
to SWHS.
Students and families will
be presented with informa-
tion essential for a success-
ful beginning of the 2007-
2008 school year.
Students returning to
SWHS are also invited to


come to school on Aug. 17 be-
tween the hours of 1 to 3 p.m.
to pick up their schedules.
School officials also encour-
age anty students in grades 9-
12 who have not registered
at SWHS to come to the
school as soon as possible to
begin the process of register-
ing for classes.

posed to extending the build-
out dates."
Another citizen, Jean
Ashley, agrees. "I've only
been living there two
months, but I bought in Em-
erald Bay because there were
not condos or apartments in
the development. When the
approval was given to this
project, I don't believe U.S.
98 had as much traffic. When
you add multi-family units
and commercial structures
with everyone coming
through the same gates we,
use, this will create enor-
mous problems and reduce
our already receding prop-
erty values."
"We should not afford ex-
tensions to people who have
shown a lack of credibility,"
said Victor Makela. "They
did not disclose to anyone
who has already purchased
there, that they had plans to
create multi-family units.
Throughout the 15 or 16
years I have been part of this
neighborhood, at no time
have they ever shared what
they planned to build on this
land. This is not somebody
we want to invest in," he con-
cluded.
Commissioner Tom Patton
noted that until November
30, 2007, the developer can
build whatever they want.
He questioned the preserva-
tion of the traffic
concurrency, which would
remain at the rate detef-
mined when the original per-
mit was issued. "Our mission
is to determine if they qual-
ity for an extension," he said.
Commissioner Tom Terrell
asked what would constitute
a significant deviation? "In
this situation, there is a pre-
sumption since they are in-
creasing the time frame by
another five years, there will
be significant deviation.
They can keep doing this
over and over. They have al-
ready gotten one extension."

When the public discus-
sion was concluded, the de-
veloper was granted the ex-
tension with Commissioner
Terrell voting no.

SWMCD workshop piques



citizens' concerns


By JEFFREY POWELL
A South Walton Mosquito
Control District (SWMCD)
workshop held on August 7,
designed to discuss issues in-
cluding spraying for dog flies,
quickly exposed the polariz-
ing nature of using pesticides
in the community. Both sides
of the issue where repre-
sented and expressed their
views in no uncertain terms.
"I am concerned that soci-
ety puts to many chemicals
into our environment," said
Blue Mountain resident Ri-
chard Fowlkes. "I would like
to see more oversight con-
cerning the use of pesticides."

do to prevent pests before the
use of pesticides is needed,"
he said.
The SWMCD is required
by state law to spray for mos-
quitos if a pre-determined
number of the pests are
found in traps. Only then are
pesticides used according to
MaGee. "We do not make the
doctrine concerning the use
of chemicals," MaGee said.
"We follow state statutes."

Coastal Branch Library presents artwork exhibit


The Walton County Tour-
ist Development Council
(TDC) and Friends of Coastal
Branch Library present Art
in Public Places exhibit fea-
turing the artwork of Melody
Bogle, during the month of
August at the Coastal
Branch Library. Each month,
Art in Public Places and
Friends of the Library brings
new, distinct exhibits for the
public to view.
Mrs. Bogle's love of art be-
gan as a teen when taking
art lessons. Her professional
career as an air traffic con-
troller led her to Chicago
where she studied art at
Northern Illinois University.
She began with drawings
and oils as her main focus
and was introduced to pas-
tels in the 1980s.
"I fell in love with the me-
dium," said Mrs. Bogle. "The
intense and vibrant colors of
pastels excited me."
She moved to the Florida
Panhandle from Montgom-
ery, Alabama, and now re-
sides in Seagrove Beach.
She attributes her beautiful
surroundings as an inspira-
tion for creating her works of
art. After attending a work-
shop in New Mexico, with


David Leffel, Mrs. Bogle be-
came involved with the local
plein air artist group. This
fall, she will travel to Italy
for a plein air workshop in
pastels with Maggie Price, a
well known pastel artist and
teacher.
Locally, Mrs. Bogle has
been accepted into ArtsQuest
and has been a recipient of
the Presidents Chdice Award.
She has studied with well
known artists and instruc-
tors including Barbara Flow-
ers, David Leffel, Maggie


IMPACT FROM FRONT
in Walton County also results in 12,158 jobs and accounts
for 68 percent of all Walton County ad valorem tax revenues.
"Tourism generated a total of $130.9 million in total
County tax revenues in 2006," Gray reported, "This includes
$93.8 million of general County revenues (including prop-
erty, sales and tourism bed taxes) as well as $37.1 million in
School Board revenues."'
.The study estimated tourism's relative share of the
county's public expenditures at $18.8 million or less, result-
ing in "a significant positive impact on the County's overall
budget."
The TDC plans to provide a detailed presentation on the
Strategic Planning Group study at the Sept. 25 Walton
County Board of County Commissioner's meeting, which is
scheduled for 4 p.m. at the, Walton County Courthouse in
DeFuniak Springs.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD THURSDAY, AUGUST 16, 2007


PAGE 4-C


After four months
and more than a to-
tal of 300 artists
making their way to
the greens of Rose-
mary Beach, the
summer West Indies
Market wrapped up
this weekend. With
its conclusion for an-
other season, thou-
sands have shopped,
created and found
that exact piece of
art for themselves
and others.

Throughout May, June and
July, the market has brought
in artists from Georgia, Ten-
nessee, south Florida, Ala-
bama, New York, Louisiana,
Mississippi, Illinois, Califor-
nia, Spain, England, Austra-
lia, Texas, North and South
Carolina, Arkansas, Mexico,
Barbados, St. Barts, Haiti,
the U.S. Virgin Islands and
Canada, just to name a few
places. Their art has ranged
from hand-crafted jewelry
and metal sculpture, to fine
art paintings and pottery.
"If you are or or not look-
ing for that special some-
thing, you can find it at the
market,' said Bee Towler of
Austin, Texas. "It is a mixture
of art and music that keeps
me coming back every year,"


she added.
The West Indies Market
has, been taking place at
Rosemary Beach for a de-
cade. Since its beginning,
with 10 or 12 vendors, it has
grown into a monthly show
that hosts more than 60 ven-
dors each month and draws
crowds of approximately
4,000 patrons for a two-day
market. The events have
brought national and inter-
national attention to the
community with a diversifi-
cation not only in the arts,
but by the artists and their
various cultures that influ-
ence their creations.
One artist this year stood
out from the rest. It was jew-
eler/artist Kyle Petit and her
unique jewelry and charity.
After Hurricane Katrina
hit the South in 2005, Petit
wanted to help make a dif-
ference and help those in
need. Her wishes came true
when she stumbled upon
some Katrina debris while on


a visit to New Orleans. Thus
her charitable designs began.
A portion of her collection
is made from chandelier
crystals that were recovered.
She takes them, fuses them
in with her designs and sells
them at various places, in-
cluding the West Indies Mar-
ket.
She says that the purpose
behind the designs and sales
came after she was intro-
duced by her friend Faith
Sexton, to a woman, in dire
need of assistance. Displaced
by Katrina, Petit's new friend
found herself homeless,
husbandless and penniless.
With her eighth-grade edu-
cation and with three small
children, it is difficult for her
to find a respectable paying
job and better her life on her
own. That is where Petit and
her jewelry come into the pic-
ture.
"Our goal is to help this
woman gain literacy, health
and employment. We are not


welfare and we want to try
to teach other women in her
position about accountabil-
ity,' Petit said. "We are ex-
cited to, be able to help with
the sale of this jewelry, but
in return we ask that this
woman and others like her,
pledge to help themselves
better their own lives."
Throughout the past four
months, West Indies Mar-
kets, numerous artists have
pledged their money and tal-
ents for worthy causes. From
selling handmade crystal
pins for the Breast Care
Awarness Foundations, to
recycling old tires and turn-
ing them into artistic mas-
terpieces to help preserve
the earth, the artists that at-
tend do more than keep the
money for themselves:'
These artists create fu-
tures, dreams and realities
to thousands in need of as-
sistance.
The West Indies Market
will return next May to
Rosemary Beach and with it
will come many new exciting
artists from all over the
world. Several of those who
have been at the market for
nearly a decade will return
for another season.

For more information on
next year's market schedule,
or other events that host
these and other artists, call

STATE OF FLORIDA
DEPARTMENT OF

DW1P/RA)

The Department of Environmen-
tal Protection gives notice of its in-
tent to issue a permit revision for
South Walton Utility Company Inc.
wastewater treatment plant, for South
Walton Utility Company Inc., 79 Sce-
nic Gulf Drive, Miramar Beach,
Florida, Walton County.

The purpose of the permit revision
is- to authorize construction to up-
grade their existing wastewater treat-
ment plant to advanced wastewater
treatment (AWT) levels and provide
an APRICOT Act back-up discharge
for a reuse system to surface waters.
This permit authorizes construction
to upgrade the existing 2.5, MGD
monthly average daily flow (MADF)
permitted capacity extended aeration
wastewater treatment plant to 2.75
MGD annual average daily flow
(AADF) permitted AWT capacity. The
treatment plant will operate in the ac-
tivated sludge mode and will have
provisions for pretreatment, equaliza-
tion;.nitrification, denitrification, clari-
fication, tertiary filtration, two stage
high level disinfection, dechlorination,
digestion, and residual handling sys-
tem.

The proposed construction will
add: a fine screen; two anaerobic ba-
sins; two pre-anoxic basins; a mixed
liquor pump station; an aeration ba-
sin; two post anoxic basins; two re-
aeration basins; a sedimentation ba-
sin; two tertiary filters; two chlorine
contact chambers, and a lined reject
pond. The facility is located at 200
Miramar Beach Drive, Miramar
Beach, FL 32550 in Walton County.

The proposed permit revision will
authorize a new 1.35 MGD MADF
back-up discharge to their reuse sys-
tem in accordance with Florida APRI-
COT Act to an unnamed FDOT ditch
system (Class III fresh water). The
discharge is directed from the WWTP
through a 18-inch HDPE pipe'under
Highway 98 to an overflow structure
on the edge of the FDOT ditch in Wal-
ton County. The point of discharge is
located approximately at latitude
3022'54.8" N, longitude 86021'28.4".
This is a back-up discharge for a re-
use system and is limited to 30% of
the permitted reuse capacity on an
annual basis in accordance with
Florida APRICOT Act pursuant to
Rule 62-610.800(a)4., F.A.C. The
FDOT ditch flows approximately
2,300 feet to Choctawhatchee Bay
(Class II marine water).

The intent to issue an application
file are available for public inspection
during normal business hours, 8:00
a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through
Friday, except legal holidays, at
Northwest District Office, Florida
Dept. of Environmental Protection,
160 Governmental Center, Room
302, Pensacola, FL 32502-5794.

The Department will issue the per-
mit with the attached conditions un-
less a timely petition for an adminis-
trative hearing is filed under Sections
120.569 and 120.57, Florida Stat-
utes, within fourteen days of receipt
of notice. The procedures for petition-
ing for a hearing are set forth below.

A person whose substantial inter-
ests are affected by the Department's
proposed permitting decision may pe-
tition for an administrative proceed-
ing (hearing) under Sections 120.569
and 120.57, Florida Statutes. The
petition must contain the information
set forth below and must be filed (re-
ceived by the clerk) in the Office of


General Counsel of the Department
at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard,
Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida
32399-3000.

Under Rule 62-110.106(4),
Florida Administrative Code, a per-
son may request enlargement of the
time for filing a petition for an admin-
istrative hearing. The request must
be filed (received by the clerk) in the
Office of General Counsel before the
end of the time period for filing a pe-
tition for an administrative hearing.

Petitions filed by any persons
other than those entitled to written
notice under Section 120.60(3),
Florida Statutes, must be filed within
fourteen days of publication of the
notice or within fourteen days of re-
ceipt of the written notice, whichever
occurs first. Under Section 120.60(3),
Florida Statutes, however, any per-
son who has asked the Department
for notice of agency action may file a
petition within fourteen days of re-
ceipt of such notice, regardless of the
date of publication.

The petitioner shall mail a copy
of the petition to the applicant at the
address indicated above at the time
of filing. The failure of any person to
file a petition within fourteen days of
receipt of notice shall constitute a
waiver of that person's right to re-
quest an administrative determina-
tion (hearing) under Sections
120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statues.
Any subsequent intervention (in a
proceeding initiated by another party)
will be only at the discretion of the
presiding officer upon the filing of a
motion in compliance with Rule 28-
106.205, Florida Administrative
Code.

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

(a) The name, address, and tele-
phone number of each petitioner, the
name, address, and telephone num-
ber of the petitioner's representative,
if any; the Department permit identi-
fication number and the county in
which the subject matter or activity is
located;
(b) A statement of how and when
each petitioner received notice of the
Department action;
(c) A statement of how each
petitioner's substantial interests are
affected by the Department action;
(d) A statement of all disputed is-
sues of material fact. If there are
none, the petition must so indicate;
(e) A statement of facts that the
petitioner contends warrant reversal
or modification of the Department ac-
tion;
(f) A concise statement of the ulti-
mate facts alleged, as well as the
rules and statutes which entitle the
petitioner to relief; and
(g) A statement of the relief sought
by the petitioner, stating precisely the
action that the petitioner wants the
Department to take.

Because the administrative'hear-
ing process is designed to formulate
final agency action, the filing of a pe-
tition means that the Department's fi-
nal action may be different from the
position taken by it in this notice. Per-
sons whose substantial interests will
be affected by any such final deci-
sion of the Department have the right
to petition to become a party to the
proceeding, in accordance with the
requirements set forth above.

Mediation under Section 120.573,
Florida Statutes, is not available for
this proceeding.
