County finalizes




$128 million budget


By DOTTY NIST
Walton County has final-
ized a 2007-08 budget of
slightly over $128 million
and an aggregate millage
rate of 3.3915 mills for the
new budget year.
Upon the recommenda-
tion of Walton County Fi-
nance Director William
Imfeld on Sept. 24, the Wal-
ton County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC) voted
4-0 to approve both the bud-
get amount.and the millage


rate, with District 1 Commis-
sioner Scott Brannon not.
present and the remaining'
four commissioners voting in
favor.\
Included in the $128 mil-
lion budget is $644,762 to.
fund North WaltonMosquito
Control and $249,235 for'
debt service on the old hos-,
pital bonds.
According to information.
provided by Imfeld, the tax-'
able value of the county for
purposes of the new budget


year is $17,629,322,667. This
represents approximately an
eight-percent increase over
the previous year's taxable
value.
One mill equals one dollar
per $1,000 of taxable prop-
erty value.
The approved countywide
millage rate (3.3563 mills)
combined with millage for
debt service on the old hos-
pital bonds (0.0144 mills)
and millage supporting
North Walton Mosquito Con-


trol (0.5069 mills) yield the
aggregate millage rate of
3.3915.
Imfeld noted that the
above rate is 9.01 percent
lower than the rolled-back
rate (3.7272 mills), the rate
that would have resulted in
the same amount of ad valo-
rem taxes being collected in
the new fiscal year as in the
current year.
Unresolved at the prelimi-
nary budget hearing two
weeks previous had been


funding to keep the Gladys
Milton Library,, in
Flowersview in operation.
Asa result offunding cuts
to the county library system,
thebudget as originally pro-
posed would have resulted in
closing of the small library

ser ice to be provided to that

community by bookmobile. '

and Gwendolyn Rhodes fron
the Northwest Florida Area'

Board passed the 2007-08

meeting for the 2007-08.
school year. The budget fea-
tures just over $73 million in
general operating expenses
with just under $3 million
going to operate special rev-
enue-food service. Another
$4.5 million is earmarked for
special revenue-federal pro-
grams with just over $3 mil-,
lion headed to debt service.
Funding for capital projects
comes in just under $52 mil-
lion for a total of
$135,3.52.721 for the upcom-
ing year. The budget and
village rate of 4.0470 passed
with 5-0 margins.
Jim McCall, chief finan-
cial officer for the Walton
County School District, pre-
sented the board members
with the numbers during
several workshops over the
last few weeks leading up to
the adoption of the budget.
"The total millage to be lev-
ied is less than the rollback
rate by .01 of 1 percent. We
have had three workshops
and a pair of public hearings.
We have pointed out in these
meetings that the projected
increase in revenues of the
general operating fund the
fund that accounts for the
revenues and expenditures
for the day-to-day operations
of the school system '-is ap-


proximately $1.934.000. Of
this amount, the state-man-
dated Class Size Reduction is
over $1.356.000. The district
school tax is increased by
$1.830,000 from $44,213,000
to $46.043.000 which is a 4.1
percent increase a much
smaller increase than we
have had in past years."
McCall continued, "77 per-
cent of the operating budget
estimated revenues are de-
rived from local taxes and
fees, and only 23 percent of
the operating budget esti-
mated revenues are derived
from state sources. This is
directly opposite of the state-
wide trend, that approxi-
mately 35 percent of esti-
mated revenues are from l6-
cal sources and 65 percent of
estimated revenues are fropii
state sources.
"Operating budget appro-'
priations are expected to in-
crease from $57.1 million tf
$59.6 million, which is an in.
crease of 4.3 percent or $2.4
million. Of this increased
amount, $1.5 million is for 31
new positions, 23 of these are
in place to ensure compliance
with the citizens' Class Size,

Walton Plantation stop-work order lifted


By DOTTY NIST
A stop-work order in effect
since March 2006 on the Wal-
ton Plantation property has
been removed following the
approval of an agreement be-
tween Walton County and
the property owners.
Last month the county
had approved conceptual
plans for 148 single-family,
homes on the property, ap-
proximately 6,500 acres,
which owners envision as a
combination tree farm and
residential subdivision.
That approval was with
the understanding that is-
sues related to the long-
standing stop-work order be
resolved prior to any further
development activity on the


property.
On Sept. 20, after some
discussion, the Walton
County Code Enforc.ement
Board approved a consent or-
der that had been worked out
between the property owners
and the county addressing
the stop-work order and al-
leged violations. As part of
the agreement, property
owners Willis, Krenkel,
Maclin & Black Properties,
L.L.C., have agreed to pay
$5,000 in fines for the stop-
work order violation.
Alleged violations on the
property had been scheduled
for hearing by the code en-
forcement board on July 19,
but that hearing wa.s post-
poned to allow time for work


toward the agreement.
Designated as large-scale
agriculture property, Walton
Plantation is located near the
far northwest corner of Wal-
ton County off CR-2. The
Walton County Comprehen-
sive Plan directs property in
this land use classification to
be used primarily for agricul-
ture and silviculture (tree
farming) purposes, along
with "functionally related ac-
tivities," among these being
hunting and fishing camps,
shooting ranges, riding and
boarding stables, community
centers, places of worship,
and other outdoor recreation
activities.
The original stop-work or-
der placed last year on the


property by Walton County
Code Enforcement cited the
property owners' failure to
obtain a development order
and other county-required
permits for alleged creation
of new roads, operation of a
public "fee-for-use" moto-
cross track, and construction
of a shooting range, among
other activities. Included in
the citation was evidence
that the owners had subdi-
vided the parcel into a num-
ber of lots in the absence of a
development order.
A month later, an
amended notice of violation
noted that operation of the
motocross track and shooting
range were.ongoing and that
about 20 acres had been


cleared in an area designated
for an airfield.
Upon meeting with the
Walton County Division of
Planning and Development
Services, the property own-
ers were told that they were
required to obtain a develop-
ment order setting forth all
development plans for the
property, including subdivid-
ing of lots and recreational
uses.
As part of the approved
consent agreement, the prop-
erty owners acknowledge
that improvements were
made on Walton Plantation
while a stop-work order was
in force on the property.

Alaqua Animal Refuge up and running


As of Sept. 19, Alaqua Ani-
mal Refuge, a non-profit ani-
mal welfare rescue, has
opened its doors in Walton
County in an effort to gaini
volunteers, donations and
supplies for the abundance of
lost and stray animals that
come with a growing commu-
nity.
Presently, the Walton
County Animal Control con-
tracts with a facility in
SChipley. TheAlaquaAnimal
Refuge has been organized to
support the developing need


for an alternative to this
shelter by providing a safe,
tranquil refuge for Walton
County's lost and stray ani-
mals within the county lim-
its.
Alaqua Animal Refuge is
currently run by Laurie
Hood, founder and director,
and a small staff of volun-
teers. The refuge is situated
in a facility donated by Hood
until a permanentrefuge and
facility can be opened up to
house more animals. "We are.
running out of room to house


the many animals that; we
try to rescue from their fate-
ful end," Hood said. "More
room, supplies, and volun-
teers are needed tq care for'
the animals we are attempt-
ing to find homes for."
Hood said the refuge cur-
rently has more' than 100
animals, from puppies and
kittens to older pets, that
were abandoned by their
owners for a variety of rea-
sons including deployment
and owners relocating to se-
nior facilities not allowing


pets. "Yes, we need the
staples to keep the animals
healthy and fed and volun-
teers who can help care for
the animals, but we also need
families who will open up
their homes to these animals
to care for them through
their lifetime," she said.
Hood continued, "Walton
County is without an animal
shelter. Animals that are
picked up, lost or stray, by
the Walton County Animal
Control are taken to a pri-
vate facility outside the


county. And thousands of the
animals are euthanized with-
out ever having an opportu-
nity of finding a home or get-
ting back to their homes."
The refuge has short term
goals of providing these ani-
mals with an alternative to
going to the facility, where
they will be euthanized. The
refuge provides medical at-
tention, behavior evaluation,
and ensures all animals are
up to date on the necessary
vaccinations. Animals for
adoption are spayed or neu-


tered when they reach the
correct age. Long term goals
include building a more per-
manent structure and edu-
cating the community on the
current crisis with these
stray or lost animals.
For additional informa-
tion on the refuge, contact
Kimberly Maxwell at
kimberly@netpr.net or

dents, core classrooms in
grades 4-8 contain no more
than 22 students, and a 25-
student maximum per
grades 9-12."
McCall reminded the
board that the millage was
reduced during the first bud-
get workshop. "Capital
projects millage was reduced
from 1.393 mills to 1.301
mills. That resulted in the
reduction of taxes in the
amount of $1,542,608. Irn our
last budget workshop last
week, you reduced general
operating fund appropria-


tions by $785,090. So, as a
result of the workshops you
have had, you have decreased
expenditures and/or villagee
by $2,327,698.
"The village rate for 2007-
08, which is 4.047 mills, is
.136 mills less than last
year's millage rate of 4.183
mills. The millage rate to
fund the expenditures of the
school district has decreased
every year since 1992-93."

School Board Chairman
Mark Davis commented,, "As
long as that half mill is be-


ing transferred, I don't see us
ever increasing the village
on the capital side. We made
a commitment to not raising
the capital side. We made the
transfer so that the net was
zero on millage at the time.
I doubt very seriously, speak-
ing for myself, that we would
ever go back.and increase it
- absent, a serious deflation
in the taxable value of the
property in Walton County -
that we would not have to in-
crease the capital outlay
millage to meet future
needs."

School Board refines waiver policy


WAL-MART MANAGER Chris Wilcox made his annual
pilgrimage to the Council to ask for permission to locate large
numbers of storage bins behind the store to house Christmas
lay-away items.


COMMUNITY FROM FRONT


property, for overflow of holi-
day merchandise from Oct.
15, 2007 through Jan. 15,
2008. Mayor Carpenter ques-
tioned Chris Willcox, general
manager of the store, on the
validity of temporary storage
every year. Willcox re-
sponded, "I just ran the num-
bers about a month ago and
we would save by building
permanent storage and are
awaiting approval on that.
With the Council's backing,
my main office would be
more likely to respond to the
future backroom expansion
for the enormous amount of
holiday merchandise we
have to store."

Vista of Ft. Walton Beach
(James W Busby Jr.) received
a date of November 26, 2007
to advertise a public hearing
for a variance to height and
setbacks for an off-premise
sign. A motion to continue
the time allowed for the DCA
.secretary to sign the ap-
proved adopted stipulated
settlement agreement with
DCA was approved as well.
Jane Swift, of CH2MHILL
OMI, also presented Mayor
Carpenter with two awards
from the Florida Water and
Pollution Control for the
waste and water treatment
plants. "These awards repre-
sent the fine working rela-
tionship and hard work be-
tween our companies and the
city to provide safe services,"
said Swift. Herb Washington,
also ofCH2MHILL OMI, an-
nounced that, due to the ex-
cellent results from last
year's project manager's
meeting in DeFuniak
Springs, the meeting would
once again be held in the city
on the weekend of Oct. 4-6.
Washington told the Council,
"First, I'd like to invite every-
one to an informal dinner on
the night of the fifth and the
next Saturday morning. Our
managers will be putting in
some sweat-equity to give
back to your city by meeting
at Lake Stanley park to do
some improvement and
clean-up for your community
park. Anyone who would like
to join us is invited and we
will be meeting at eight that
morning." The council
thanked Washington for his
company's involvement with
the community.
The council approved
unanimously three budget-
item bids. A bid by Gum
Creek Farms for $9,125 for
Timber Wind Estates drain-
age improvements was ap-
proved. Public Works Direc-
tor Bill Holloway received
approval for budget items for
the .sewer department.
Ferguson Enterprises won
the bid for $12,012 for a new
sewerjetter and a DVD cam-
era setup for the sewer sys-
tem at $9,510.
Holloway also spoke to the
council about a problem he
has been discovering at the
Lakeyard and around city
parks. Holloway requested
direction from the council on
the increasing amount of ani-
mal waste that was not be-
ing picked up by dog owners
at these public spots. The
Council agreed to investigate
places to put signs asking
dogs owners to clean up af-
ter their pets.
The Council also approved


the city airport layout plan
(ALP) update. Kirby said the
plan was awaiting formal ap-
proval from the FAA.
Mayor Carpenter closed
the meeting by updating the
attendees on the traffic light
being installed at U.S. 331
and Bruce Avenue. He said,
"I'm sure everyone has seen
some of the work going on
there. The wires have been
run under the road and we
are waiting for the footers to
be put in. We are making
progress. It's slow progress,
but we are, going to get
there."

The Walton County School
Board revised their waiver
criteria checklist at the Sept.
18 regular meeting to try and
streamline the process to
match the policies of neigh-
boring counties. While the
criteria adopted is close to
what Bay, Okaloosa, and
Holmes Counties use, it is
not an exact match, as Super-
intendent Carlene Anderson
stated.
The three counties adja-
cent to Walton have some
policies that differ and make
a 100-percent matching
policy unlikely to ever occur.
With that in mind, the fol-
lowing are requirements to
enter the county as a student
from another district:
The student must be a
Florida resident.
The waiver request must
not cause a school to exceed
class size reduction require-
ments and must not ad-
versely impact instructional
resources.
For kindergarten, first
and second grade students,
there must be no active AIP
for current or previous school
year.
The student must have no
educational service needs
that are not currently pro-
vided by the school where
enrollment is sought.
A student assigned to
grades 3-11 must have scored
Level 3 or higher on FCAT
math, reading and science
assessments for the previous
school year.
A student must have an
overall 2.5 or greater GPAin
the current school year or
previous school year, if re-


Swill be meeting the
---- last Thursday of the month,
now until October, at 7 p.m.
,. L The meetings will be held in

quest occurs between school
years.
The student must have no
suspensions or expulsions
pending in the current school
year or previous school year,
if request occurs between
school years.
A student must have two
or less major disciplinary re-
ferrals in the current school
year or previous school year,
if request occurs between
school years.
A student mustnot be ab-
sent more than ten days
within a 90- day period in the


current school year or previ-
ous school year, if request
occurs between school'years,
per the Walton County
School District attendance
policy.
A student must have no
pattern for tardiness in the
current school year or previ-
ous school year, if request oc-
curs between school year.
A student may not have
been enrolled in any school
in the Walton County School
District (WCSD) previously
within the last two school
years.


An exception to the crite-
ria was allowed for all em-
ployees of the WCSD that
may live outside the district
borders but bring students to
a school in the course of trav-
eling to their job in the dis-
trict. If the student in ques-
tion at some point no longer
meets the criteria listed
above, then the waiver would
be revoked for non-compli-
ance.
The measure passed and
will now be part of the pro-
cedure when handling
waiver requests.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


Editor's Comment


Let the games begin
By RON KELLEY
In yedrs past, this was the time that presidential candi-
dates would just be starting their campaigns. Ooooh, that's
just so four-years-ago!
Already, we have been bludgeoned with debates, ads and
late-night coming-out parties with David Letterman. Na-
tional media talking-heads are talking about Hillary and
Obama (both Democrats) to the exclusion of just about ev-
eryone else. I assume that means that they are sure that
the Republicans don't have a chance of putting anyone in
the White House. Maybe so, but they shouldn't be too sure
of that. I keep remembering that picture of Harry Truman
holding up the newspaper whose headline read "Dewey De-
feats Truman." Yeah, Dewey-who?
Yes, Hillary and Obama are getting a lot of buzz and it's
understandable. This is the first time that there's ever been
any real chance of a black or a woman being elected presi-
dent of the United States. American masses have a weak
spot for that kind of drama-for-the-sake-of-drama. I mean,
how else could you explain George W. Bush? As the son of a
former president, he was a shoo-in as the Republican nomi-
nee. Only the fact that it was George and not Jeb accounted
for the whisker-close presidential race. Frankly, if First
Brother Jeb decides to run four years from now, he's bound
to get elected. Three presidents from one family, are you
kidding? A father and two sons? Americans just love that
kind of thing. Jeb's practically president already.
In the meantime, Republicans Giuliani, Romney and
McCain have been running wide open. Then just when they
thought they'd distinguished themselves from each other,
along comes Fred Thompson, the former senator from Ten-
nessee. Thompson already sounds presidential. He not only
talks tough about the things that are important to Ameri-
cans, he looks presidential. Couple that with the fact that
he's played so many solid, upstanding law-and-order types
(pardon the pun, I couldn't stop myself) on TV and in the
movies, he's almost blown past the competition overnight.
Thanks to unprecedented amounts of campaign contri-
butions and the finest (or worst depending on your view)
campaign spin-doctors money can buy, the presidential race
is no longer about substance. It's all about style. People are
now talking about how important it is to elect a black man
or a white woman as if that is the only consideration. Sadly,
for many people, it is. They are stubbornly, determinedly
and resolutely clueless to the point of ignorance much like
the people who still cheer for Mr. Bush. The only question
is are there enough of them to force their will on the rest
of us?
We have a slate of good candidates. With only one or two
exceptions, the country could prosper under the leadership
of any of the top candidates, Republican or Democrat. My
point is, as always, it's about the person not their race or
gender, not their haircuts, their age, fidelity or the number
of times they've been married. Had those things been the
most important criteria, we would never enjoyed the wis-
dom, prosperity and leadership provided by FDR, Dwight
D. Eisenhower, John Kennedy or Ronald Reagan, to name
just a few.
The late President Ronald Reagan once said, "Politics is'
supposed to be the second-oldest profession. I have come to
realize that it bears a very close resemblance to the first."
He was right. So let's just hope we can elect one with the
proverbial "heart of gold."

Letters to the Editor


Editor,
On September 11, 2001, our nation was attacked by merci-
less terrorists, driven by disgust and hatred for our country.
Buildings in New York City were shaken, and so were the
hearts of American citiznes. We, however, did not fall like those
buildings. We stood strong and united during our brothers'
and sisters' time of need. September 11 is a day that seems to
have slipped some people's minds. For them, it is just an-
other day. This is not so for the students at Paxton High School.
On September 11 (now called Patriot Day) this year, the
students at PHS prepared a program for their fellow students.
They also invited all parents and community members'who
wished to attend. The program began when the student coun-
cil president, Maryllyn Gilbert, opened with a few remarks.
She reminded the student body of the importance of remem-
bering the day.
After her remarks, Gilbert led the school in reciting the
Pledge of Allegiance. She then introduced the student coun-
cil secretary, Shala Cuchens, who sang the National Anthem.
Following the anthem, the school's new principal, Sonya
Alford, introduced the September 11 video prepared by a few
students on the Paxton media crew. Lee Jackson, Brandon
Justice, and Cathy Kitchens were the editors of the video. It
was a huge success! The media crew's. sponsor, Debbie
Donaldson, was very proud of her students.
"We have been presenting the 9/11 program ever since 2002.
The presentations have been award winners. Last year's pro-
duction captured third place in the Emerakl Coast Public Re-
lations Contest. I believe this year's tribute is even better
than last year's," Donaldson said. She then added, "It is an
honor for me to have the opportunity to teach these outstand-
ing students."
During the video, hearts swelled and tears fell throughout
the audience. If anybody had forgotten the purpose of the
assembly, they had certainly been reminded. The video had
focused on the tragedy itself, the aftermath, the departure of
our soldiers, the war on terror, and the construction of the
Freedon Tower. Students are now familiar with George
Santayana's words, "Those who cannot learn from history are
doomed to repeat it." After the 9/11 tribute this year, Paxton
High School's students are anything but doomed.

"Ask


Auntie

Em"


Dear Auntie Em,
Hi. I have no real love life. I am attractive, intelligent
and kind of funny, yet no one has even asked me out in the
past three years. I have had only one relationship and that
only lasted two months. What is it that I am doing wrong?
Signed,
Neglected in Niceville
(Name withheld by request)
Dear Neglected,
Auntie Em feels your pain. It took me awhile to realize
that prince charming doesn't deliver in 30 minutes or less.
Many a Friday night in the distant past, Auntie Em's hot-
test date was with the pizza deliveryman and a large pep-
peroni with extra anchovies special. So....
First, check your attitude and your altitude. Where are
you headed in life and what do you want for yourself and
in a mate? Lack of direction is often misinterpreted for des-
peration in the opposite sex and will send most men worth
dating running for the hills like their hair is on fire and
the rest of them is catching. So, start focusing on yourself
and living a fulfilling life with or without a love interest.
People in motion tend to attract others in motion and a
personal passion can expand into a shared passion and ro-
mance.
Second, expand your social circles. I'm not saying to leave
tried-and-true friends behind, but to increase the odds of
meeting someone, you have to increase the number of people
you meet. You have to go out and do new things, be brave
and be inviting of new friendships without the hopes of


Editor:
It is a sad day in the DeFuniak Springs community when
we find out our churches are closing their doors to visitors
who come to our town to enjoy all the wonderful things we
have to offer. I could not believe my eyes when I read in St.
Agatha's newsletter that the Presbyterian Church and the
Chautauqua Theatre group were closing thier doors to other
organizations. What is this town coming to when resident
and local businessman Craig Robinson goes before our
churches and asks them to close their doors to visitors so
his organization can benefit?
I have read all of Craig Robinson's news articles and let-
ters to the editor and seriously suggest he get some type of
anger management counseling instead of pleading with the
community to wage a war among us. I have no intentions of
fighting a war and truly resent him for bringing this upon
our comminty. I was appalled by an e-mail written by Craig
Robinson with the subject title of "Destruction to Come."The
contents of that e-mail are just as appalling as the title sug-
gests. What in the world would possess someone to set out
to destroy someone else? To divide our community and ask
churches to close their doors to others. To take unfair ad-
vantage of others and mislead the community so they will
be a part of his organization. No thank you! I just cannot
understand what kind of human beings want to be a part of
such a mission. ,
Craig Robinson thinks he has the support of the entire
community but I have a news flash for him. We do not all
support you and I would like to ask those who do, to be sure
they know what type of mission his organization has in mind.
Enough is enough. From this day forward, I will never sup-
port anything that Craig Robinson is involved with.

Editor,
On September 9, 2007 the DeFuniak Springs Red Sox
ended their 22-3 season at the Gulf Coast Championship.
We here at Don Graham Enterprises are looking forward to
next year. DGE will be accepting donations and sponsors
throughout the off-season and will be holding fundraisers
for the next year's budget to cover new field fees and uni-
forms, advertising, and traveling expenses.
On Saturday, September 15, DGE hosted a benefit
fundraiser for the DFS Red Sox and PDL Tigers at the Wal-
ton County Fairgrounds. The car show and parade was an
exciting event that everyone enjoyed. Thank you to all our
fans and family that came out and supported us during the
first season. Thank you for a great baseball season and we'll
see everyone next year.

romance as the end result. Many say that romance is
'friendship set on fire and the more friends you make, the
better your odds at meeting someone you might find in-
teresting. Take a chance and sign up for a class you would
never have imagined being interested in or attend social
and political events listed weekly in local publications.
They are often free and can give you some practice in be-
ing more proactive where your love and social life is con-
cerned, as well as enrich you personally.
Third, do a real gut-check on how you feel about your-
self and if you are conveying that image to the outside
world. Stand up straight, smile and make eye contact with
people you meet. Asking someone out is a very daunting
task. The more approachable you are, the more you may
get asked out. Don't be afraid to ask someone out, as well.
Nothing ventured is nothing gained, so take a chance. The
more you change your approach, the more different out-
comes you will receive. So, stop sitting around. Invest in
your own happiness first, be proactive, and your prince
will come. Love most often happens when we are busy and
least expect it.
If our readers have suggestions for Neglected in
Niceville, please send them in and Auntie Em will be happy
to include them in an upcoming column.

ARRESTED UNDER SEXUAL
NANCE is Daniel T Boos.


OFFENDER ORDI-


Registered sexual

offender arrested

under new ordinance


On Sept. 25, DeFuniak
Springs Police Department
(DFSPD) Officer Cory
Webster arrested a suspect
for an alleged violation of a
recently- enacted city
ordinance. Daniel T. Boos,
33, is alleged to have violated
DeFuniak Springs City Or-
dinance #753, enacted and
passed on August 13,
2007. This ordinance makes
it illegal for any person who
was required to register with
the State of Florida under
F.S. 944.607 to enter or oc-
cupy any park inside the city
limits. Boos, a registered
sexual offender, was con-
victed of lewd and lascivious
conduct with a victim under
the age of 16 in 2001.

DFSPD had recently re-
ceived two separate com-
plaints that an individual fit-
ting his description had been
harassing juveniles and
women in Chipley Park (at


Lake DeFuniak) in DeFuniak
Springs. A description of the
individual was given to city
workers, who later reported
seeing someone meeting
Boos' description at the
Lakeyard amphitheater,
shortly after noon on Sept.
25.
Upon arrival at Chipley
Park, Webster reportedly ob-
served Boos walk up the
slope from the amphitheater
to Circle Drive near Live Oak
Avenue. Webster recognized
Boos from his photo on an
FDLE Sexual Offender flyer
posted at headquarters and
approached him. Boos pre-
sented a valid Florida
driver's license and said that
he had been in the park sev-
eral times over the past few
days. Webster placed Boos
under arrest and transported
him to the Walton County
Department of Corrections to
be held pending first appear-
ance before a judge.

(Part Six of the Herald's
seven-part series on
immigration)

By ALICIA LEONARD
Illegal immigration in the
workforce touches every citi-
zen, whether they realize it
or not. Buy groceries lately?
Chances are, you've been
touched. A 2005 study pub-
lished by the Federation for
American Immigration Re-
form (FAIR) states that "even
if the estimated taxes col-
lected from illegal immigrant
workers are subtracted, net
outlays still amount to nearly
one billion dollars per year
and the annual fiscal burden
amounts to about $300 per
Florida household headed by
a native-born resident." That
means every legal household
in Florida pays at least $300
a year to support illegal
aliens.
Arguments abound on
both sides that illegal immi-
gration is bad and good for
the economy. Only one thing
is for sure in the debate -
employers are startingto feel
the squeeze of the public and
government sentiment to
cease and desist the hiring of
illegal aliens in the work-
place. Local and federal offi-
cials are starting to incorpo-
rate a multitude of laws, or-
dinances and voluntary pro-
grams, through interoffice
relations aimed at helping
employers hire legal immi-
grants and citizens.
Some officials, such as Bay
County Sheriff Frank
McKeithen, are even show-
ing up at construction sites
to help employers discover
whether they have illegal
aliens on their payroll or not.
McKeithen discusses this
strategy in an open letter to
the public on his website,
www.bayso.org. McKeithen
states, "Initially, we went to
the federal government for
help. There were problems.
After several months, the
situation got better. But af-
ter conducting several joint
operations, it became appar-
ent the federal government


could not do what we felt we
needed to do in Bay County.
"During this time, we
were urged to participate in
a program called the 287-G
program and so we filled out
the proper paperwork. This
program, created by the fed-
eral government, would em-
power deputies of the Bay
County Sheriff's Office to
deal with illegal aliens like a
federal agent. I have received
no response from the federal
government to the paper-
work submitted other than
'We don't have the money to
fund the program this year.'
We even made the offer to
pay our own way, to no avail.
"We began to research
Florida State Statutes and
subsequently discovered two
that have proven effective.
Florida State Statute
817.568 deals with the crimi-
nal use of personal identifi-
cation information. The sec-
ond is 440.105 (4)(b) 9, which
deals with the use of false in-
formation to obtain employ-
ment. It has been our expe-
rience that illegal aliens of-
ten steal and use the Social
Security. numbers of innocent
and unsuspecting victims to
gain employment."
Numerous national publi-
cations have reported that
when McKeithen and his
deputies show up, those with
false paperwork scatter and
deputies often have to give
chase. Small-town sheriffs
across the country are follow-
ing suit, to the cheers of their
local residents.
Illegal immigration propo-
nents often argue that. illegal
aliens do jobs that Americans
don't want. While companies
that hire illegal aliens gain
in profit by paying lower
wages to these workers, they
may be missing the big pic-
ture of their company's eco-
nomic health.
Ohio University econo-
mist Lowell Gallaway, states
in a February, 2007 article
for USA Today, "Poor English
skills aniong foreign-born
residents cost more than $75


billion a year in lost produc-
tivity, wages, tax revenue
and unemployment compen-
sation," The National Acad-


emy of the Sciences reported
in May 2007, "the net fiscal

drain onAmerican taxpayers
is between $166 and $226 a
year per native household.
The average native taxpayer
is paying for immigration so
that large companies can
profit by employing immi-
grants in low-wage posi-
tions." The rub of illegal em-
ployment lies in the fact that
employers can petition for as
many worker visas as needed
and receive them, if they can
prove that citizens or legal
residents cannot fill the job,
instead of hiring illegally.
One of the most noted
raids to take place on an em-
ployer was in December
2006. Six Swift Meats pro-
cessing plants across the
country were raided and fed-
eral officials arrested 1,300
workers and charged 274
with state or federal criminal
violations, including identity
fraud. Swift, even while com-
plaining to political powers
that they could not get
enough Americans workers
needed for employment,
quickly filled the job vacuum
with American workers.
Eight legal residents and
citizens, who were ques-
tioned in the raids, have
"filed suit against the U.S.
Department of Homeland
Security (DHS) and its Immi-
gration and Customs En-
forcement (ICE) division,
charging that their rights
were violated during massive
nationwide raids last Decem-
ber and (are) seeking an end
to such actions. Attorneys are
asking that it be certified as
a class-action," according to
the Dallas Morning News.
Locally, Walton County
Sheriff's Office Domestic Se-
curity Investigator and In-
spector Tommie Adkins says,
"Processing plants, like the
Perdue plant we used to have
here, attract illegal immi-
grants. We see the process-
ing plant issues in many
other parts of the country.
Locally, we still have con-
struction and hospitality
business that may run into
issues with immigration."
Adkins became an ICE
287-G officer in 2005 and is
taking a pro-active stance,
with Sheriff Ralph Johnson's
backing, in helping employ-
ers stay in good legal stand-
ing with the ICE mutual
agreement between govern-
ment and employers


(I.M.A.G.E.) program.
According to the WCSO
press release, "The IMAGE
program seeks to identify
employers who are willing to
and desire to go beyond
simple lawful compliance in
reference to hiring practices,
but strive to increase the in-
tegrity of their own employ-
ment practices. This is ac-
complished through identi-
fied 'best practices' among
industry partners. Member-
ship in the IMAGE program
is currently limited to the
best employers who go above
and beyond what is required
of them to fully comply with
immigration laws."
Adkins says, "It is the le-
gal and ethical duty of all
employers to hire only autho-
rized workers. This program
makes it easier to under-
stand what is going on in the
business world right now and
what employers are facing
with social security number
and identity theft. Employ-
ers may have all their paper-
work in order and still find
out that their employee has
duped them. Government
agencies may show some le-
niency to an employer that is
involved in the program,
since it proves their vigilance
in only hiring those with
proper documentation. The
IMAGE program provides
the tools that employers can


use to ensure that they are
following the rules. The pro-
gram is totally voluntary and
information can be found at
www. ice.gov/partners/
opaimage/index.htm or they
can contact me at the sher-
iffs department."
WCSO deputies have also
just finished training in Au-
gust 2007 to learn to identify
real immigration papers
from fraudulent documents.
Adkins said, "Some of these
fake documents look very
real. If our officers make an
arrest and question the le-
gitimacy of documents pre-
sented to them, they pass
them onto me. I look over the
documents and if I find they
are falsified or fake, I alert
the ICE office in Pensacola
that we have a possible ille-
gal alien in custody. After
that, ICE gets involved and
we are working hard to keep
interoffice exchanges going
smoothly."
Another alarming trend in
illegal employment is em-
ployers hiring illegal aliens
and discarding them or deny-
ing worker's compensation
claims in cases of injuries. In
an article published by
McClatchy Newspapers,
Sept 2006, "Thousands of il-
legal workers are hurt on the
job every year in America,

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 2007


ORDER FR


Walton County planner
Tim Brown testified that the
county will require the prop-
erty owners to follow up on
the recent approval of their
conceptual plans by submit-
ting detailed plans for the
property, including the resi-
dential lots, airfield, shooting
range, motocross track, and
other recreational uses.
Prior to issuance of a de-
velopment order and permits
for any of the recreational
activities, the agreement
states that activities on the
property are to be limited to
harvesting of trees "for silvi-
cultural purposes" plus re-
lated activities such as tree
planting; hay planting and
baling; along with use of the
shooting range, designated
ATV riding areas, and
motocross track by property
owners and their guests only,
on a non-fee, amenity basis.
In the absence of a devel-
opment order, the agreement
will bar roads from being
constructed on the property,
nor can existing motocross
tracks or logging trails be im-
proved.
The property owners dis-
agree with the county's con-
tention that any roads were
constructed, maintaining
that the roads were pre-ex-
isting.
Walton Plantation co-
owner/developer Henry
Maclin was apologetic about
his previous negative, atti-
tude about code enforcement
at the time the property was
cited, adding that he has a
better understanding of that
process now. He said the
owners plan to work hand-in-
hand with the county to
move the project along.
"We went out with some
ignorance but with good in-
tentions," he said.
Maclin said there has
been confusion about Walton

Plantation because, "it's a
little bit of a different ani-
mal." He explained that Wal-
ton Plantation's 11 square
miles "will always remain in
an open agricultural and tim-
ber setting.
"It was never meant to be
big and fancy," he said, ex-
plaining that 4,000-5,000
acres will not be sold but will
be maintained as a tree farm
area.
Seventy percent of the 148
planned lots will also be re-
stricted to stay "in timber,"
he remarked. No concrete
will be allowed on the prop-
erty, not even for home foun-
dations, and all roads will be
sand only, he noted.
"Whatever recreation will
fit under a tree canopy, we
would like to encourage," he
commented, adding that 20
miles of horse trails are in
place.
About 200 neighbors and
friends gathered to build the
open-sided chapel, using tim-
ber harvested from the prop-
erty, he related.
Maclin said he had not
planned on building ameni-
ties such as the shooting
range and motocross course
but that some of the property
owners had requested them.
He said he hopes the de-
velopment will be one "that
Walton County will brag on"
and that others will imitate
once it is fully designed. He
also said it is his hope that
this concept will help other
tree farms to stay viable.
He said he and his part-
ners are investing in a wood
chips-to-oil technology that
produces a product that can
be mixed with diesel fuel.
Mike Burke, interim
county attorney, agreed that
Walton Plantation is "a new
sort of subdivision, as it
were," later referring to it as
"their Utopia."

THE WALTON COUNTY Code Enforcement Board recently approved a consent order worked out between the owners of
Walton Plantation and the county which addressed alleged code violations on the 11-square-mile property.


member David Kramer had
concerns that approval of the
agreement might set a pre-
cedent that logging roads
could not be improved with-
out a development order. "I
don't interpret the land de-
velopment code as saying
that," he argued.
Brown maintained that
this was a special circum-
stance because these roads
would be used by lot owners
to access their homes, thus
not setting the precedent


warned against by Kramer.
Board member Alan
Newsome was concerned
about the relatively low
amount of the fine, but Burke
explained that the legal de-
partment saw a benefit in
settling the matter and ob-
taining payment in a short
period of time.
Walton County Code En-
forcement Coordinator Kevin
Hargett also recommended
that the board approve the
agreement.


Board member Charlotte
Flynt wondered if the agree-
ment held this property to a
different standard, since oth-
ers had been held to heavier
fines for unpermitted recre-
ational activities.
Burke's response was that
in this case the activities
were appropriate for the land
use. The problem came in
when the Walton Plantation

Florida Department of Health's Top 3 Reasons To Get Your Flu Vaccine
1. Prevents influenza-related death. Each year over 36,000 people in the U.S. die because of
the flu most are 65 or older. More.people die from flue than from any other vaccine-pre-
ventable disease.
2. Prevents severe illness. In the U.S. influenza puts about 200,000 people in the hospital
each year. Children younger than 2 years old are as likely to be hospitalized as adults who
are 65 or older.
3. Protects other people. You should get vaccinated if you live with or care for others who are
at high risk of complications from the flu. Getting a flu vaccination yourself can help protect
your family members, including seniors and young children.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 2007

RADAR


FROM 8-A
but don't get the compensa-
tion that's promised by law
in every state. Bosses often
fire them, threaten them
with deportation and commit
an array of other misdeeds to
avoid responsibility for work-
ers' injuries. Some insurers
refuse to pay their claims, cit-
ing their illegal status. As a
result, injured workers often
go without medical care or go
to emergency rooms for treat-
ment and taxpayers get
stuck with the bills.
"Employers are hiring the
aliens and pushing them
hard to make a profit for the
company, but when a worker
gets hurt, they abandon
him. It's an ugly secret, and
it's going on nationwide, said
Texas lawyer Richard Pena,
the chairman of the Ameri-
can Bar Association's immi-
gration committee. The em-
ployers and insurance com-
panies profit... (while) immi-
grant workers often go back
to their home countries bro-
ken and in pain. Employers
in at least 20 states, arguing
that their employees
shouldn't receive injury ben-
efits because they're illegal
immigrants, have fought and
lost in courts and review
boards. Florida recently re-
jected hundreds of workers'
comp claims because they
didn't include Social Security
numbers, a procedure the
Florida Supreme Court
halted last year because the
requirement violated privacy
laws."
The Social Security Ad-
ministration (SSA) teamed
up with the .Department of
Homeland security (DHS) to
enact tougher rules and
stiffer penalties for employ-
ers hiring illegally or who
received a "no-match" letter
from the SSA, designed to go
into effect Sept. 2007, but
according to the ICE website,
"On August 31, 2007, the
U.S. District Court for the
Northern District of Califor-
nia issued a temporary re-
straining order in AFL-CIO,
et al. v. Chertoff, et al. (N:D.
Cal. Case No. 07-CV-4472


WHETHER LEGAL or illegal, every child
guaranteed an education by the state.


CRB). The temporary re-
straining order against the
Department of Homeland
Security and the Social Se-
curity Administration en-
joins and restrains those
agencies from implementing
the Final Rule entitled'Safe-
Harbor Procedures for Em-
ployers Who Receive a No-
Match Letter.' Due to this
temporary ruling, citizens
and taxpayers will have to
wait for the government en-
tities to stop suing each other
before employers of illegal
aliens start getting the mes-
sage."
In the meantime, local
schools are starting to feel
the growth of a diverse popu-
lation due to large immigra-
tion numbers as well. Walton
County School Superinten-
dent Carlene Anderson
talked about immigration in
Walton schools, saying, "This
is an issue we are starting to
feel at our level. I get to-
gether with other superin-
tendents from our state, es-
pecially from south Florida
and this issue is 'old hat' to
them. They have been deal-


in Florida is


ing with large numbers of
immigrants since the '80s,
whereas we are just starting
to see our numbers increase.
Many immigrant families
are starting to migrate from
south Florida to the Pan-
handle, as well. Every child
in Florida is guaranteed an
education by the (state) con-
stitution and we have to fol-
low certain guidelines to en-
sure that education. We are
not allowed to request Social
Security numbers from our
students, but every student
in Florida must have a
health screening before they
can enroll in classes."
Anderson admits that can
be a problem. "This is a chal-
lenge for our school systems,
but we are up to the task and,
please remember, many of
our students are legal immi-
grants or citizens of this
country, no matter what
country their parents origi-
nate from," she said. "We just
had a student placed in our
system from China. You
know, one day the child is in
China and the next'he is sit-
ting in our classroom, so bi-


lingual aides for our class-
rooms is one job position that
is increasing rapidly in our
school system."
Cathy Hall, coordinator of
special programs and ser-
vices for Walton County
schools, agreed with
Anderson's comments. "We
have children from around
the globe attending schools
in Walton County. Romania,
Bosnia, China, Germany and
Hungary, just to name a few,"
she said. "The enrichment
our local children get from
our immigrating students is
an education in other cul-
tures and practices world-
wide."
When Hall first began
working with the school sys-
tem, things were different.
"We had about 25 in our En-
glish-language learners
(ELL) classes when I started
in 1998 and now we have
around 200. All of our stu-
dents are tested on their abil-
ity to speak, read and write
in English. We have many
who test out and are profi-
cient enough to integrate into
our schools without any as-
sistance." At this time, Hall
says the school employs six
bilingual aids to help with
the language transition
needed by students. For ev-
ery 15 students who need
service, a teacher or aide is
assigned according to state
education laws.
FAIR and the National
Center for Education Statis-
tics (NCES) estimate "the
cost of educating illegal im-
migrant students in Florida
in 2000 to be about $378 mil-
lion, based on the U.S.
government's estimated ille-
gal alien population in 2000.
NCES data indicate that
educational costs per pupil
have risen to a current level
of about $6,848. Using an av-
erage cost factor may under-
estimate the costs associated
with the illegal resident
population. The state's ad-
mission of illegal aliens into
the state's public universities
and community colleges at
taxpayer subsidized in-state
tuition rates is an additional
expense not included in the
above calculation. Our esti-
mate of that outlay in Florida


is that it could be costing the
taxpayers $38-49 million per
year."

occupancy to Walton County Commission Chair Kenneth Pridgen (District 2) on September
21 in front of the new Walton County Courthouse wing. (Photo by Christopher Mitchell,
Walton PIO)


County to move into new


courthouse wing Friday


Walton County leaders
have been given the "all
clear" to move into the new
Walton County Courthouse
wing Friday, Sept. 28, by
DeFuniak Springs planning
department. Walton
County Commission Chair
Kenneth Pridgen (District
2), accepted the certificate
of occupancy from Walton
County Building Official
Billy Bearden last week,
which finalized plans.
"I've waited years
to see this day come,"
said Commissioner
Pridgen. "This new
wing enables all of our
constitutional officers to
move into one building
making business. much
easier for the taxpayer," he
said. The only constitutional
officer not moving into the
new wing is the Sheriff,


since the Sheriff Office's
operations have moved into
their new administration
building next to the new jail
north of DeFuniak Springs.
All other constitutional
.officers (Clerk of the Court,
Tax Collector, Supervisor
of Elections and Property
Appraiser) and their
operations will move into
the new courthouse wing in
scheduled phases.
The Clerk of the Court
and court operations are
only two of the government
services locating to the new
80,000 square-foot addition
Friday. Several weekends
following, the tax collector,
supervisor of elections and
property appraiser offices
will relocate to the new
wing and eventually to the
additional 10,000 square-
foot renovated sections of


the courthouse previously
vacated by the clerk of the
court and court operations.
Announcements of those
moves will be issued once,the
moving dates are finalized.
Although the courthouse
in DeFuniak Springs will
be closed on Sept. 28 for the
move, all county government
services will continue at the
South Walton Courthouse
Annex in Santa Rosa Beach.
"None of our government
services will be interrupted
on that day," reminds
County Administrator
Ronnie Bell; "but citizens
wishing to do business with
the clerk's office or who are
instructed to appear at the
court hearing will need to be
prepared to visit the 'South
Walton Courthouse Annex
on Sept, 28."

WEAVING WAS A MAINSTAY of the cotton-producing Bellevue Plantation, for sale and
home use.


By BRUCE COLLIER
The Tallahassee Museum
is celebrating its 50th an-
niversary. The museum's
five-decade, mission has
been to promote "knowledge
and understanding of the
Big Bend's cultural history
and natural environment."
From a house in downtown
Tallahassee, the exhibits
and grounds have expanded
to cover a 52-acre property
bordered by two bodies of
water Lake Bradford and
Lake Hiawatha.
A ticket to the museum
buys a day's admission to
all exhibits on the property.
The entire museum prob-
ably could be covered in a
day, but an in-depth ap-'
preciation would take more
than that. This article re-
counts a visit to "Old Flor-
ida," a six-exhibit portion
of the museum that can be
managed in an hour and a
half. Other exhibits on the
S property are Natural Flori-


da, Wildlife Florida, Florida
and Beyond, Trail Breakers,
and Big Bend Farm. The
property has many trees,
plenty of shade and benches
.for resting, as well as.picnic
tables, vending machines
and a cafe. Things can get
hot out on the trail, so be
prepared.
Once through the mu-
seum's entrance building -
where there are restrooms,
a drinking fountain, and a
gift and book store visitors
can follow a handout map
to their tour of choice. All
along the way are descrip-
tive signs, guide posts, and
educational maps and post-
ers.
If one is taking the Old
Florida tour, the first and
impossible-to-miss stop is
the caboose. The car is bright
red, painted with the mark-
ings of the Seaboard Rail-
road ("Through the Heart
of the South") and num-
ber 5362. The car was con-


structed in 1924 and served
both the Florida East Rail-
way and Seaboard Air Line
railroads. The car is affixed
to a section of track, and can
be entered on either end. Ar-
ranged around the caboose
are displays of railroading
tools and an explanation of
their functions in appropri-
ate railroad lingo. Inside are
more tools, and period-style
wall posters, calendars, and
furnishings.
As with the other exhib-
its, an audio tour can be ac-
cessed with earphones, for
an additional fee.
The Concord Schoolhouse
is the next stop, following
the well-marked path. The
schoolhouse was. built in
the 1870s as a school for
children of former slaves in
Leon County. It remained in
service until 1968, one of the
last one-room schoolhouses
in Florida. As with .the ca-

The very best of teachers

By DR. ROBERT M. JAYE


In Matthew 11:28-30, we
find the great invitation of
our Savior. In verse 29
there are three words
which should awaken us to
what is a prime require-
ment of our Lord. They are
"learn of me." Nicodemus
was right when he said,
"Rabbi, we know that Thou
art a teacher come from
God." Christ was a teacher
come from God, and He
wanted us to learn of Him.
We are to learn of His de-
voted consecration. Christ
had a work to do for our
salvation, and He gave


Himself wholly to it. He was
in earnest about it. He told
His mother that he must be
about His Father's business.
He did not please Himself.
He went about doing good.
We are to learn from His de-
voted consecration to His
work.
We are to learn from His
loving sympathy for the
needy. He was always kind,
sympathetic, approachable.
Let us learn from Him the art
of winning souls in a win-
some way.

We are to learn from His


habit of prayer. How often do
we read of His going to the
mountains, or to the desert
places, or alone to pray! If
God's own Son knew the
need to pray, how can we
poor, weak mortals expect to
get along in our work with-
out it?

We are to learn from His
unwavering faith. If Christ
knew that he should finish
the work that God sent Him
to do, if in the darkest hours
He was still conscious that
the kingdom He would found
would be an everlasting


THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 2007


kingdom, if He knew that
the Gospel He was preach-
ing was destined to circle
the globe, then as laborers
together with Him in the
same work, have we not
reason for faith?
Let ts sit at the feet of
our Great Teacher and
Savior. Let us learn of Him
who came from God. Let us
give attention to His Word.
Let us study His methods.
Let us follow His Spirit.
Let us share in His faith.
To do this calls us to our
Savior with a desire to
learn of Him.

mother enjoys reading the Bible. Now she can't see
very well. So I sent her a remarkable parrot that re-
cites the entire Bible. It took elders in the church 12
years to teach him. Mama just has to name the chap-

Soon thereafter, their mother sent out her letters of
thanks.
"Milton," she said, "the house you built is so huge.
I live only in one room, but I have to clean the whole
house.
"Gerald," she said, "I am too old to travel.

Precious daughter, sister and friend
Who ever thought your life would end
So suddenly one. dreadful morn...
Your soul has flown to 'heaven above
Where you dwell in endless love.
But we are left down here, forlorn.


For we who loved you are now left
With arms and hearts so bereft.
Of all the love you had to give...
We miss you every single day.
Your smile and all your loving ways,
We wanted you to always live.

Although your life was much too brief
And our hearts are still filled with grief.
We're glad we had those precious years...
So we give thanks to God above
For sending you to us'with love
And know someday He'll dry our tears.

For you. still live in heaven above,
And watch o'er us in constant love.
A love that never more will end...
And someday we will join you there
When heaven's joys we, too, will share.
Precious daughter, sister and friend.

A day does not pass without us thinking of you,
your beautiful smile, your bubbly personality,
your compassion, your giving spirit, and your hugs.
Our hearts ache for what we cannot have.
You are forever in our hearts.
We love you and miss you very much.

We came into,.this world with nothing,
And some leave the same,
But not this woman, her treasures are great.
Not money or riches, wealth or fame,
But a lot of friends she made along the way.
And though the roads before her were full
Of hardships and pain,
She faced them all with pride and dignity.
Now this world is going to be a much poorer place,
Because Heaven gained another star the day
Brandi passed away.

Walton wins Homecoming despite rain 40-12


By PATRICK CASEY
The Walton Braves scored
27 points in the second half
as they moved to 4-0 on the
season with a 40-12 victory
over the Vernon
Yellowjackets in a non-dis-
trict tilt. Walton celebrated
Homecoming on the night
with a large crowd in atten-
dance despite a persistent
rain from a subtropical storm
that moved through the area
and forced some game post-
ponements in Escambia and
Santa Rosa counties.
Walton opened the scoring
on their second possession of
the night as the Braves drove
80 yards in only four plays as
Issac Jackson took a 23-yard
pass into the endzone for a
7-0 lead.

Both teams moved the
football in the first half, but
scoring stayed at a minimum
until Walton tacked on an-
other score with just under
three minutes left in the half
as Sean Allen caught a 20-
yard touchdown pass from
junior starting quarterback
Tarrell Bramlet to increase
the lead to 13-0.
Vernon responded with a
69-yard drive that saw the
Yellowjackets score on the fi-
nal play of the half, as wide
receiver Markel Andrews
caught a 34-yard touchdown
pass from Josh Boyett to cut


the halftime deficit to 13-6.
Vernon was able to put points
on the board despite having
no timeouts. Vernon's touch-
down came on a fourth-down
play as Andrews was able to
tip the ball to himself over a
shorter Braves defensive
back and make the grab as
time expired.
The third quarter started
with Walton receiving the
second half kickoff and a
hard rain falling on those in
attendance. Walton turned to
the running game and junior
Issac Jackson responded as
he carried the ball five times
for 59 yards, the last an 11-
yard scoring run, to increase
Walton's lead to 19-6.
Vernon responded with a
71-yard drive that saw the
Yellowjackets' passing-game
lead the way as Josh Boyett
hit Geo Works with a 3-yard
touchdown pass to cut the
deficit to 19-12.
Walton's defense stifled
the run all night long, but
struggled to stop the passing
attack as Vernon's tall receiv-
ers hauled in 244 yards on
pass plays. Walton did inter-
cept three passes and Issac
Jackson's interception of a
Boyett pass, with 2:30 re-
maining in the third quarter,
thwarted Vernon's attempt to
tie the game.
Michael Campbell took off
on a 64-yard touchdown run


on the next play as Walton
extended the lead to 26-12
Vernon did not survive the
momentum shift as Will
Brock intercepted a pass in
the fourth quarter, leading to
a 33-yard touchdown drive
that saw Keke Aguilar catch


a 9-yard pass from Bramlet
to up the advantage to 33:12.
Woody Virgin tacked on a 16-
yard scoring run with four
minutes left in the game for
the final margin of 40-12.
The Walton defense ha-
rassed Boyett the entire


WALTON'S TARRELL BRAMLET threw for 229 yards
and three touchdowns as Walton defeated Vernon for Home-
coming 40- 12.


Sports News & Notes


By PATRICK CASEY
The South Walton volley-
ball team did not have much
luck against Crestview as the
squad dropped both
matchups with the Bulldogs
over the last couple of weeks.
The Seahawks did sweep
Rocky Bayou, but then got
ran over by Pensacola Catho-
lic as the Crusaders swept
three games at South Walton
in the teams' initial meeting.
Northview dropped the
Seahawks into the cellar
with a three-game sweep on
September 20. South Walton
is struggling at 4-8 on the
year.
Walton's volleyball team
won the opening match with
Freeport in volleyball in four
games and has the leg-up in
the county championship.
The Braves will make a re-
turn trip to Freeport on Mon-
day, October 1. Walton
played two matches that
went five games in the span
of three days as they fell to
Laurel Hill 15-11 in the de-
ciding game, while knocking
off Northview 15-13 in the
fifth game of that contest.
The win over the Chiefs sets
Walton up to sweep
Northview, if they can cap-
ture the rematch on October
4. The Braves had no such
luck against Pensacola
Catholic as the Crusaders
swept Walton in three games
on Thursday to drop the
Braves to 5-5. Catholic has


won the last 12 matches in
the series.
Freeport continues to en-
joy the county's top record as
they defeated Vernon in four
games last week, then beat
South Walton for the second
time this season in four
games. Baker handed the
Bulldogs their first district
loss, as they took out Free-
port in four games in Baker.
Freeport(8-4) beat the Gators
in Freeport on August 30 and
will likely have to contend
with Baker in the district
tournament in late October,
which happens to be in
Baker.
Walton lost Larel Jackson
to a knee injury moments be-
fore halftime in the
Northview game. Jackson,
who has an ACL tear, will
likely be out for the rest of
football season and may miss
basketball season, too. The
injury is a blow to the Wal-
ton football team, as Jackson
was the leading receiver on
the squad, but it may be felt
more by the basketball team
as Jackson was expected to
be one of the top point guards
in the area this season.
Paxton hosted and won
the boys' side of the first
cross-country meet of the
season with Tyler Garrett
leading the way with a time
of 20:58..Walton's girls placed
first, with Shelby Rushing
claiming top honors with a
time of 21:33.


Paxton captured the girls'
title at the second cross-coun-
try meet in Freeport.
Krysten Cuchens finished
first for the Bobcats with a
time of 25:29. Walton's
Lindsey Phillips and Andy'
Scarbecki were second and
third with times of 26:25 and
26:26. Freeport's Isabelle
Lara finished seventh with a
time of 29:01.
South Walton earned a
fourth-place finish on the
boys' side and a fifth-place
finish with their girls' cross-
country team during the
Emerald Coast Eye Opener
Classic held at Okaloosa-
Walton College on Septem-
ber 15. Julie Williamson fin-
ished eighth with a time of
23:27 while Austin Buzzett
placed 13th on the boys side
with a time of 19:54.
Walton defeated
Marianna in a golf match
held at Indian Springs by 17
strokes. Walton's Sean
Carter shot a 37 to post the
low total for the 9-hole
match. The Braves golf team
also shot a combined 333 at
the Miracle Strip Invita-
tional in Fort Walton to fin-
ish 11th out of 22 teams. Paul
McClure led the way with a
76 while Heath.Morgan had
an 81. Aaron Timnions came
in at 82 and Dylan Laird fin-
ished with a 94.
South Walton's golf team
played at the same event as
Walton and finished 14th.


The Seahawks shot a 367 as
a team with Billy Davis lead-
ing the way with an 83. Jared
Kane had an 87 with Blake
Ruden shooting a 90 and
Mike McCall a 107.
The Walton Middle School
girls basketball team is off to
a 3-0 start after sweeping the
Baker Gators in play last
week.
The Walton Middle School
football team defeated
Holmes County 24-14 in the
eighth-grade contest to im-
prove to 3-0 this season.
Alabama wide receiver
D.J. Hall, who is from Fort
Walton, had three catches for
46 yards against Georgia and
extended his school record
streak of games with at least
one reception to 22 consecu-
tive games. He also has a

Seahawks get soaked


By CHUCK HINSON
It wasn't just the rain that
soaked the South Walton
Seahawks on Friday night, it
was also Baker's offense and
their star player, quarter-
back Cameron Domangue.
He carried the ball 36 times
for 224 yards and two touch-
downs on Baker's way to
beating the Seahawks, 20-7.

South Walton did have a


Canes:



They're
By CHUCK HINSON
The Miami Hurricanes
hove been pushed to the side
over the past year and for ob-
vious reasons. They just have
not been the same national
championship winning team.
But this past Thursday,
things began to turnaround
for the Hurricanes as they
side-swiped and then plowed
through No. 16-ranked Texas
A&M.
Final score from Miami,
34-17. This was only the sec-
ond victory for Miami in its
last nine games against a
ranked opponent dating back
to the end of the 2005 season.
For Miami fans, and for
those Aggie fans that made
the long trip to see what they
thought would be another
Miami massacre, it was stun-
ning to see the floundering
Canes come alive and shut
down almost every play that
the Aggies tried to complete.
Hurricane's quarterback,
Kyle Wright, threw for 275
yards and had two touch-
downs for the night. He also


spark of hope at the opening
of the game in Baker when
they scored on Kenzie
Clemmons' 19-yard run to
put South Walton on the
scoreboard first. Caleb
Brown kicked the field goal
and the Seahawks would fin-
ish out the first half with a
7-6 lead.

On the opening drive and
throughout the rest of the


e back
completed 21 of 26 passes,
finding Craig Cooper for one
TD and then Chris Zellner
for the other. Sam Shields
also shined bright for the of-
fense with six catches for
1137 yards.
The surprising aspect of
the game, more than just the
explosive Miami offense, was
the fact that the Aggie trin-
ity of Mike Goodson,
Jorvorskie Lane and Stephen
McGee, came into Miami av-
eraging 235 yards per game.
After their breakdown
against the Hurricanes, the
three were only able to
struggle by with 80 yards for
the night.
Miami scored three touch-
downs offA &M turnovers in
the final 3:40 of the first half
to rack up a whopping 24-0
lead. The Hurricanes never
let up and went on to score
another 10 points.
Texas A & M dropped out
of the top 25 due to the loss
and were joined by Louis-
ville, who lost to Syracuse on
Saturday.


second half, Baker domi-
nated the field and put an
additional 14 points on the
board. The Seahawks first-
half touchdown would be
their only scoring for the
night.


Kenzie Clemmons led the
Seahawks in rushing with 64
yards and Steffano Shutte
added another 18.
South Walton travels to
Cottondale on Friday.


THE SEAHAWKS STARTED out strong, but ended up fall-
ing to Northoview in all three matches. Final scores were 25-
23, 25-17, 25-11.

Auburn on the mend, Alabama suffers


By CHUCK HINSON
For many, it looked like an-
other scary night for the Au-
burn Tigers (2-2) as they
struggled ion the field at
home against New Mexico
State (2-2). But the second
half seemed to bring the Ti-
gers alive and once again get
them on the road to redemp-
tion.
Auburn beat New Mexico
State, 55-20.
Just after a week of being
booed and then benched,
Brandon Cox stepped up to
the game and passed for
135 yards and a touchdown.
his teammate, Mario Fannin,
got about as many jeers from
the crowd after he had nu-
merous problems in the USF
and Mississippi State game
over the past three weeks.
Both players turned the
game around, and Fannin
Sacked up 103 yards and ran
the ball 15 times with three


touchdowns, including a 67-
yarder in thefourth quarter.
Ben Tate also seemed to
come alive, rushing 21 times
for 112 yards and a touch-
down.
Auburn held on to a slim
21-20 lead at the halftime,
but after emerging from the
locker room', the Tigers had
a new attitude and a new
challenge. The challenge was
to re-establish themselves in
the top 25 polls.
For the flipside of the state
of Alabama, the fans of the
Crimson Tide saw a little of
what the Tigers have been
dealing with over the past
three weeks. Bama falls at
home to Georgia in overtime,
26-23.
Nick Saban though that
his winning streak could be
untouched if he could get
past the Bulldogs. But like so
many hopes and dreams,
there came a rude awaken-


ing and a nightmare for the
Tide and their SEC champi-
onship hopes.'
- The Bulldogs (3-1) and the
Tide (3-1) bothoneeded the
win and once the game went
into overtime after Georgia's
Brandon Coutu's 47-yard
field goal attempt went wide
left, the game, the network,
the SEC and the nation were
glued to the screen and over-
time.
The Tide went the first
three downs and ended up
with the field goal making
the score 23-20.
Now it was Georgia's turn.
They knew that a field goal
would just thrust the game
into the second overtime,
and they were not wanting to
stay in Tuscaloosa any
longer. Georgia quarterback
Matt Stafford (19-of-35
passes for 224 yards, two
touchdowns) found his mark
in the first play of their over-


time possession.
Stafford bombed a 25-yard
pass to Mikey Henderson
and the game ended with a


26-23 score, knocking the
Tide down to No. 22 and lift-
ing the Bulldogs to theNo.
16 spot. ". ; .: i '


Aldbama heads to Jackson-
ville this weekend to take on
unranked Florida State on
neutral ground. :,,- :i,.

Gators stopped the Bulldogs

yard line. Chance Knowles
found a seam in Freeport's
defense and raced 69 yards

rain fell around him. The
Gators fumbled the extra-

Freeport pounced on an-

boose, the schoolhouse has
been relocated to its present
site, where the interior has
been restored to a semblance
of the original. Both exterior
and interior are rough
whitewashed wood, with-
benches for students and a
centrally-placed wood stove.
There's a plain blackboard
and a desk for the teacher. In
the rear are signs describing
the school, the students, and
the efforts of civil rights
leaders and educators to
achieve equality of schooling
for black students,
culminating in the U.S.
Supreme Court's landmark
1954 decision of Brown v.
Board of Education.
The third stop on the Old
Florida tour is Bethlehem
Missionary Baptist Church.
The church was built in the
1850s as a place of worship
for slaves, and its founding
pastor was reportedly the
Rev. James Page, an ex-slave
who became a prominent
spiritual leader in
Tallahassee. Like the
schoolhouse, the church is
plainly furnished, but boasts
a chair for the pastor, raised
pulpit, and organ. A floor plan
shows the church as it
probably was laid out out in
its original form, with chairs
for guest preachers, an "amen
corner," and pews for the
choir. Posters along the walls
show a photograph of Page,
along with photos of
congregations and church
meetings. Churches played a
significant role in early black
communities, and many of
the leaders of the civil rights
movement were ministers
and church elders.
The last three buildings in
the Old Florida tour are all
part of the same exhibit,
Bellevue Plantation. The
plantation was the home of
Achille and Catherine Murat.
Catherine was the great-
grandniece of George
Washington and Achille the
nephew of Napoleon
Bonaparte. The style of the
1850s-era building is
described as "cottage."Alook
at the grounds and interior
show it to be very much a
working plantation,
dedicated to the cultivation
and weaving of cotton. One
room is filled with exhibits of
plantation tools and cotton-
related equipment. A

"calendar" shows the tasks
performed by plantation
slaves during the months of
the year, including clearing
land, planting, slaughtering
livestock for food, mending
and maintaining the house
and equipment, and picking
cotton the latter done
during the hottest months of
the summer.
Another room shows
replicas of furniture and
household equipment,
including an ingenious
storage box that keeps fruit,


2:26 left in the game when
the Gators took over after a
Freeport punt at their own
30-yard line, but promptly
went backwards as a pair of
sacks ended the ill-fated
drive at their own 8-yard
line.

C.J. Bates and Nathan
Hendrickson both rushed for
42 yards as Freeport man-
aged 97 yards on the ground.
Wewa finished with 67
rushing yards despite the
fact that Knowles scored on
a 69-yard run in the first
half. 15 of Wewa's 37 rush-
ing plays went for a loss as
Mark Easton led the way
with three tackles for losses
on the night.
Freeport(1-2) will host
Franklin County on Friday,
September 28, at 7 p.m. in
another District 1, Class A
contest.

cheese, wine and spirits,
cigars, and even fish as fresh
and palatable as possible in
the days before refrigeration.
Upstairs is a bedroom and
weaver's, loom, along with
tools for carding and spinning
the cotton bolls into
"homespun" for various uses.
The Murats were an
unusual pair, coming from
the leading families of two'
nations. Catherine's family
connection Achille's father
had been one of Napoleon's
marshals and Prince of
Naples earned her
recognition at the court of the
Emperor Napoleon III, who
ruled a second French
Empire from 1852 1870.
Achille died in 1847.
Catherine died at Bellevue in
1867. Achille had tried his
hand at cotton, sugar, and the
law. Catherine was involved
in the restoration of Mount
Vernon, George Washington's
family home.
Also on the Bellevue
property are a kitchen and
slave quarters. At the time of
this visit, those exhibits were
closed off, being used for
filming.
Time prevented a visit to
the other exhibits, except for
a brief stop at the turpentine
commissary, a "company
store" from the early 20th
century. This is part of the Big
Bend Farm section of the
museum. Florida's abundant
pine forests and their
commercial applications
nearly earned the state the
title of "Turpentine State"
rather than the more tourist-
friendly "Sunshine State."
Inside the store are food,
old-fashioned tools, products
such as turpentine, pine tar
soap and shampoo, and
"naval stores," products used
to maintain wooden ships.
Such stores were a vital part
of turpentine camps,
supplying workers with food
and necessities, though often
at wildly inflated prices. The
"credit" system used at these
camp stores often kept poorly-
paid workers in a perpetual
state of debt peonage, a
practice that was finally
outlawed by legislative
action.
The staff at the
Tallahassee Museum is
friendly and helpful, and the
open-air exhibits make the
place attractive to families.
The museum is located on
Rankin Avenue and Museum
Drive, not far from the
Tallahassee Airport. Hours
are Monday Saturday from
9 a.m. 5 p.m., and Sunday
from 12:30 5 p.m. Admission
rates are $8 for adult, $7.50
for senior citizens and college
students, $5.50 for children
ages four 15, and free for
children under three years
old. The museum's telephone

Despite SEC win, Gators slip in poll


By CHUCK HINSON
Despite their win over Mis-
sissippi on Saturday, it was
not enough of a good impres-
sion to poll voters, to keep the
Gators in the No. 3 spot in
the Top 25 rankings. Florida
had to rely strongly on sopho-
more quarterback Tim Tebow
for the scoring.
Even after the victory and


a remaining perfect record,
the Gators flip-flopped with
Oklahoma in the No. 4 spot.
Tebow had his own share
of problems throughout the
game, but did the job, though
it was not pretty, for the
Gators. Tebow racked up 166
yards and had four TDs.

Meyer was worried about

and on Oct. 20 at 2 p.m. at
the Mattie Kelly Fine & Per-
forming Arts Center, Sprint
Theater, Okaloosa-Walton
College (OWC) in Niceville.
Winner of the 1981
Pulitzer Prize and the New
York Drama Critics Circle
Award, "Crimes of the Heart"
centers on the three Magrath
sisters who have gathered to


await news of the family pa-
triarch, their grandfather,
who is living out his last
hours in the local hospital..
Lenny, the oldest sister, is
unmarried at 30 and facing
diminishing marital pros-
pects. Meg, the middle sister,
who quickly outgrew their
hometown of Hazlehurst,
MS., is back after a failed
singing career on the West
Coast. Babe, the youngest,is
out on bail after having shot
her husband in the stomach.


Their troubles are high-
lighted by their priggish
cousin, Chick, and by the
awkward young lawyer who
tries to keep Babe out of jail
while unable not to fall in
love with her: In the end, the
play is the story of how its
young characters escape the
past to seize the future. The
cast features Alicia Leonard

Lenny, Rachel Hoskins of
Fort Walton Beach as Meg,
Joleigh Jarvis of Niceville as


Babe, Nalia Bauer of

Hilton donates bedspreads



to Katrina Victims


After recently remodeling
a portion of its guest rooms,
the Hilton Sandestin Beach
Golf Resort & Spa was left
with 100 good-as-new bed-
spreads and no real use for
them. Instead of hauling
them to a dumpster or auc-
tioning them to the highest
bidder, the Hilton Sandestin
began researching charities
that could put the bed-
spreads to good use by help-


ing others. That's when they
came across Mission Love
Seeds, a local charity that as-
sists Hurricane Katrina vic-
tims in rebuilding their lives.

"We knew we wanted to
give these bedspreads to a
charity that had a real need
for them," said Mike Chouri,
general manager of the
Hilton Sandestin. "Even
though it's been two years


since the storm, Hurricane
Katrina victims are still pick-
ing up the pieces of their lives
and starting anew. Because
Mission Love Seeds and its
group of volunteers are dedi-
cated to helping these fami-
lies get back on their feet, the
organization was the perfect
choice."
SMission Love Seeds has
taken everything from
housekeeping and building


supplies to appliances, cabi-
nets andeven front doors to
Mississippi for Hurricane
Katrina victims. The organi-
zation plans to give the
Hilton' Sandestin's bed-
spreads to families who can
put them to good use.

sion Love Seeds and its out-

THE IMPACT of tourism on the Walton County economy is reported to have hit the $1
billion-per-year level.







Presentation set




on tourism impact


By DOTTY NIST
The community is invited for an update on
the economic impact of tourism in Walton
County, which is reported to have reached the
$1 billion level annually.
The presentation, based on a recent study
by Strategic Planning Group, is planned for
Oct. 9, in conjunction with the Walton County
Board of County Commissioners meeting,
which begins at 4 p.m. at the South Walton
Courthouse Annex.
Local tourism leaders will be in attendance
for the presentation, along with Robert Gray
of Strategic Planning Group. Discussion at the
Sept. 19 South Walton Tourist Development
Council (TDC) meeting included an announce-
ment of the presentation and other tourism-
related topics.
TDC member Ken Gifford reported the
county's bed tax collections, a measure of tour-
ism activity, to be over 10-percent higher for
July 2007 as compared with those of the pre-
vious year.
TDC Executive Director Kriss Titus
brought up the matter of short-term accom-
modations in south Walton County being
rented without bed taxes being collected.
Florida Statutes require the bed tax, a local
sales tax, to be-collected on accommodations
rented out for less than a six-month period in
south Walton County.
The bed tax is now set at the rate of 4 per-
cent. Revenues from the tax support the TDC's
administrative costs plus marketing and pro-
motion of the area as a tourist destination,
beach clean-up, construction of public beach
accesses, and beach restoration and nourish-
ment.


Titus commented that the owners of ap-
proximately 7,000 short-term rental units
in south Walton County have registered
their units and are collecting the bed tax.
Based on reports by TDC research consult-
ants, she estimated that about twice that
number of units are actually being rented
out without bed taxes being paid.
TDC member Mike Stange called this
"a big problem" because these owners ben-
efit from the TDC's marketing, beach ac-
cesses, beach maintenance and other ac-
tivities without paying their fair share. As
a result, they are also able to discount their
rates below their competitors, he noted.
"As the economy goes down, this goes
up," TDC member Mary Brown agreed.
The members discussed new "vacation
rent by owner" web sites through which
some owners may be renting out their
properties while skirting both the bed tax
and also state sales taxes in some cases.
Titus said that county Clerk of Court's
office personnel visit web sites such as
these and contact owners they are aware
of who are not complying with regulations.
The members directed Titus to meet
with county officials and research addi-
tional ways to respond to the situation.
Brown volunteered her assistance in this.
The meeting was the last for TDC mem-
ber Craig Waterman. Waterman, general
manager for WaterColor Inn and Resort,
announced that he will leave his position
at the end of the month and leave the area
to pursue an opportunity in San Diego. He
received hugs and many good wishes from
TDC staff and board members.


has only four acres desig-
nated as wetlands. Accord-
ing to Tom Blackshear, facili-
ties planner for the WCSD,
"It is difficult to find such a
large parcel in this area that
is not constrained by wet-
lands and flood plains."
Superintendent Carlene
Anderson stated, "We are
very pleased to find this'
property after searching for
such a long time. Our schools
in the southern portion of our
county will definitely benefit
from this purchase."
Over the past three years,
facilities staff has considered
at least 16 other sites in
south Walton, but found this
to be the most desirable fdr
future growth and planning.
The school board has not yet
approved construction of a
school for this site: However,

Suspects


charged with


human trafficking


By ALICIA LEONARD
The dark side of immi-
grant abuse and employment
came to light in Walton
County last week. Contrary
to a recent Washington post
article on the lack of evidence
of human trafficking in the
U.S., human smuggling and
the dispersion of fraudulent
visas have been alive and
well in this sleepy, little com-
munity and neighboring
.counties, according to a Sep-
tember 2007 press release
from the U.S. Department of
Justice.
"The Criminal Division of
the U.S. Department of Jus-
tice and United States Attor-
ney Gregory R. Miller of the
Northern District of Florida
jointly announced the return
of a 27-count indictment
charging Aleksander V.
Berman (also known as Alex
Berman), 38, Justin Eric
King, 26, and Vyacheskave
Adol'fovich Finkel (also
known as Stan Finkel), 45,
with conspiracy to defraud
the United States govern-
ment and conspiracy to en-
rich themselves by illegally
bringing aliens into the coun-
try to work in the hotel
industry. The indictment
also charges alien smuggling,
visa fraud and mail fraud.
Berman, a naturalized
U.S. citizen born in the
former Soviet Union, has
been in custody since he was
arrested and charged on Au-
gust 22. King, an American
citizen and resident of Wal-
ton County, Florida, was also
charged on the same
date. Finkel, a legal perma-
nent resident, was arrested
on September 20 after return
of the indictment. Last week,
Anna Czerwien, 57, pleaded
guilty, admitting her part in


the conspiracy that began as
early as 1999 in Georgia and
continued until this year in
Florida. Czerwien was con-
victed of one count of con-
spiracy to commit visa fraud,
10 counts of visa fraud, and::
one count of conspiracy to
encourage and induce aliens
to enter, and reside in the
United States. Sentencing is
scheduled before Senior;
United States District Judge
Lacey A. Collier for Novem-
ber 27, 2007 at 11:30 a.m.
According to the
indictment, Berman was the
chief financial officer of
Eurohouse Holding Corp.
and shareholder.of Woland,
Inc. King was an officer of
Eurohouse and a Woland
employee. Finkel was an
employee of
Eurohouse. Aliens living out-
side the United States can
apply for non-immigrant vi-
sas called "H2-B visas,"
which permit the aliens to
work in this country for a
specified, temporary time
period for a specific
employer. The indictment al-
leges that fraudulent paper-
work presented by the defen-
dants on behalf of Eurohouse
caused H2-B visas to be is-
sued for more than 200 aliens
before the government be-
came aware of illegal conduct
and stopped issuing visas.
The indictment further al-
leges that when the defen-
dants could no longer obtain
visas through Eurohouse,
they created Woland for the
sole purpose of continuing
the scheme.
In the course of her guilty
plea, Czerwien admitted
that, as part of the con-
spiracy with Berman and

County makes case


for federal funds


THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 2007


By CHRIS MITCHELL
Walton County Public Infor-
mation
Walton County commis-
sioners meet with Sheila
Bowman of Congressman
Jeff Miller's office Wednes-
day, September 26 at 10 a.m.
to discuss how federal dollars
can significantly impact the
life of every Walton County
citizen. The meeting will
begin at the South Walton
Courthouse Annex on U.S.
331 in Santa Rosa Beach.
The Board of County Com-
missioners (BCC) ratified
their i t-p funding priorities in
January, for which they now
are requesting federal funds
to help support. These in-
clude $7,000,000 toward the
widening of U.S. 331,


$5,000,000 toward widening
the Clyde B. Wells Bridge
(Choctawhatchee Bay
Bridge), $3,000,000 to sup-
port construction of a waste-
water treatment facility in
Mossy. Head for the new In-
dustrial Park, Mossy Head
Elementary School, residen-
tial areas and commercial fa-
cilities in that area, $350,000
for a mobile health unit to al-
low for greater outreach and
preventative care through-
out the county, $500,000 for
a Coastal Dune Lake Envi-
ronmental Assessment for
the 15 named coastal dune
lakes in south Walton
County which are rare natu-
ral systems.
Walton County commis-
sioners have already met


with a representative of U.S.
Senator Mel Martinez's office
(Kris Tande) in August, who
later joined individual com-
missioners after the meeting
to tour their districts and re-
viewed the projects needing
federal funds.
"We're hopeful
Wednesday's meeting with
Congressman Miller's repre-
sentative, Sheila Bowman,
will give our federal officials
better insight into why we
need these funds," said Wal-
ton County Administrator
Ronnie Bell. "We look for-
ward to providing the
congressman's office with all
the information they need to
help secure the necessary
funds that will benefit all of
our Walton County citizens."

SUSPECTS

King, she signed paperwork
alleging that she was presi-
dent of various Destin,
Florida hotels, including the
Hilton Sandestin, the
Ramada Inn-Destin, and Bay
Point Marriott Resort Golf &
Yacht Club. In fact, and as
Czerwien admitted, she was
not the president of these ho-
tels or of any others. During
her plea, Czerwien admitted
that she caused paperwork to
be presented to
various agencies of the
United States, which en-
abled Eurohouse and Woland
to obtain visas for aliens so
that they could enter the
country and work at Florida
hotels.
Each conspiracy, visa
fraud, and smuggling count
carries a maximum penalty
of 10 years imprisonment
and a $250,000 fine. Each
mail fraud count carries a
maximum penalty of 20
years imprisonment and a
$250,000 fine. The United
States is also seeking forfei-
ture of $3.2 million..-.
The investigation of the
case began in late 2005. The
indictment resulted from
joint investigation by the
Okaloosa County Sheriff's
Office, the U.S. Department
of State's Diplomatic Secu-
rity Service, the Department
of Labor's Office of Labor
Racketeering and Fraud In-
vestigation, the U.S. Immi-
gration and Customs En-
forcement, and the U.S. Citi-
zenship and Immigration
Service. The Walton County
Sheriff's Department as-
sisted in the execution of
search and arrest warrants."
U.S. Rep. Jeff Miller re-
cently spoke with newspaper
reporters on the subject and
said, "Trafficking in persons
is rapidly becoming one of
the leading international en-
terprises of the 21st century.
Congress has taken steps to
close the loopholes in the law
and provide for apprehension
and prosecution of traffick-
ers, but Congress needs to do
more. Securing the border is
key to our national security,
but also stopping the trade in
human beings. Stopping ille-
gal border crossing is the
single most important thing
that Congress can do to stop
trafficking."
Local county law enforce-
ment has been aware and
working on this problem for
some time now. In August
2007, four local sheriffs in the
first judicial circuit, from
Walton to Escambia County,
formed the Northwest
Florida Human Trafficking
and Smuggling Task Force.
The task force is aimed at
curbing human trafficking in
our area. Each sheriff has
announced ongoing investi-
gations on this issue in the
northwest Florida area that
prompted them to form the
group.
According to the Univer-
sity of California at Berkley's
Human Rights Center,
Florida is the second highest-
ranked state in the incidence
of human trafficking in this
country.
Inspector Tommie Adkins,
domestic security investiga-
tor for the Walton County
Sheriff's Office, told the Her-


FROM FRONT


ald, "Every tourist season,
we see an influx of about
3,000 immigrants along the
Emerald Coast who have
been granted H2-B worker
visa's. Many are young and
come from eastern European
countries in search of high
payingjobs for a short period
of time before returning to
their homeland." Many of the
young workers are ripe to be
taken advantage of, said
Adkins.
"Their English skills are
good, but being in a new
country and surrounded by
strangers, they may tend to
get bullied or pushed around
by more unscrupulous em-
ployers. I've seen instances of
10 to 15 people living in a
two- to three-bedroom home
and being charged $300 rent
each. The abuse and advan-
tage taken of these workers
goes to the point of absolute
cruelty in some cases."
1 Even legal immigrants are
fearful of contacting authori-
ties where workplace abuse
is concerned. Immigrants
who might complain fear
that without the employment
in place that allowed them to
travel to the U.S., their visas
will be pulled and they will
be sent home. Or worse,
many guest-workers come
from countries where orga-
nized crime is rampant.
Crime leaders purchase
houses where immigrants
with legal visas are piled 20-


30 plus into four-bedroom
dwellings, according to some
published reports. They have
no transportation and fear
torture, rape and the deaths
of themselves and family
members alike if they reach
out to local law enforcement.

Okaloosa Counts has be-
come so concerned about this
issue that Sheriff Charlie
Morris has made space in his
office for a staff member from
The Florida Coalition
Against Human Trafficking
(FCAHT) to combat this
growing local problem..
Adkins said, "When this in-
formation came to us, I went
to Sheriff Johnson and he
gave us carte blanche to work
with the federal government
on this operation. Walton
County S.W.A.T. teams
served search and arrest
warrants on two residences
in south Walton. We secured
the premises and federal
agents made the arrest. The
suspects were then handed
over to U.S. marshals to be
transported to a detention
facility. I want to stress that
the victims of this crime, the
Immigrants who were work-
ing here, were not illegal.
They thought that the
worker visa's they held were
obtained in a legal fashion.
This is considered human
trafficking and the suspects
are all being charged, at the
very least, with visa fraud."

"This is .the first time I
ever lost a job for doing good
work," said South Walton
County Mosquito Control
District (SWCMCD) Director
Gary D'Andrea "I have put
my heart and soul into this
program."
D'Andrea's comments
came during what turned out
to be yet another contentious
SWCMCD regular board
meeting held on September
18.
The board voted Tuesday
by a two to one margin not
to renew D'Andreas' contract,
which expires on September
30.
During the meeting, Com-
missioner Jim Crawford
made a motion not to renew
D'Andreas contract and not
to negotiate further with the
director. Commissioner
Charlie Burke seconded the
motion and an extended de-
bate concerning D'Andrea's.
attributes followed.
Crawford cited too many
budget cuts as one of his rea-
sons for the decision. He also
implied that the director.was
overpaid. D'Andrea makes

just over $116,000 per year.
"Lets try to get someone in
here to do the job cheaper,"
Crawford said. When asked
to provide a more detailed
explanation for not wanting
D'Andrea to return, he.said
he could not comment on ad-
vice from his attorney.
SWCMCD Chairman
John Magee came to
D'Andreas defense. "Gary
took a program that was run-
ning amuck," said Magee.
"Now we are one of the bests
districts in Florida."
"In 1997, this program
was in chaos,"D'Andrea said.
"I have tripled the services to
the public with the same
amount of employees since
then."
"Walton'County Taxpay-
ers Association representa-
tive Bob Hudson was present
at the meeting and made
comments concerning the
district's budget. "This part
of the county is getting good
value on their tax dollar," he
said. "You lowered your tax
rate more than the state re-
quested.
: SWCMCD BoardAttorney
Allan Ramey stepped down
from. his position momen-


tarily to speak as a citizen.
"Gary has the quality and
honor that will be hard to re-
place," Ramey said. "He is a
benefit to the county and the
district. He is a very honest
man."
The comments on
D'Andrea behalf fell upon
deaf ears as Crawford and
Burke voted not to continue
the contract, with Magee vot-
ing yes.
The SWCMCD board of
commissioners has been a
center of controversy in re-
cent months. Burke is under
investigation for allegedly
not living in the district he
serves. The Walton County
Supervisor of Elections has
turned the matter over tothe
state and the investigation is
ongoing. If Burke is found
guilty, every vote he has
made will become void and
each issue will have to be re-
visited, including D'Andrea's
contract decision.

According to Chairman
Magee, the Department of
Agriculture will appoint a
temporary director until the
position is filled or the mat-
ter is settled.


Public safety education event at WCSO substation


The Walton County
Sheriff's Office (WCSO), with
the participation of the South
Walton Fire District (SWFD)
and AirHeart, held a public
safety education event Sept.

Beach substation. 'The event
was designed to teach ap-
proximately 20 children and
their.parents, who partici-
pate in the home schooling

lic.

Members of the WCSO's
beach patrol unit, aviation
unit, and traffic unit were
present to display and an-
swer questions about the
equipment they use and their
mission. Among the equip-
ment displayed were the he-
licopter, rescue boat, all-ter-
rain vehicle, jet skis, patrol
car, and motorcycle. A mem-


ber of the beach patrol also
talked to the children about
beach safety, particularly rip
currents and the warning
flag system. Members of
AirHeart were: also present
and answered questions


about their medical rescue
helicopter and its role in

WCSB budgets, buys and


builds in busy agenda


By PATRICK CASEY
The Walton County School
Board handled a busy slate
at their September 18 meet-
ing in DeFuniak Springs as
they worked to finalize the
budget, approved one land
purchase while hearing de-
tails about another tract of
land that might be donated
in the future and received the
monthly capital projects up-
date.
The Walton County School
Board purchased 40 acres of
land in southern Walton
County as the district plans
to use property in that region
to build schools in the future.
The 40 acres bought is stra-
tegically located north of U.S.
98 and east of CR-395. The
land has only a small area of
wetlands in its compilation
in the northwest corner of
the tract and is considered a
viable option if access can be
obtained via an easement for
the landlocked parcel. The
Division of Forestry has. of-
fered a one-year, 100-foot
easement across Division of


Forestry land to access the
property as part of the deal.
The easement may take a
few months to iron out, but
the Division of Forestry
seems willing to grant spe-
cial use. The board approved
the land buy with a 4-1 mar-
gin at a sales price of
$4,195,000.
Facilities construction
continues to move at a steady
pace. The lack of a severe
threat during the hurricane
season has kept most
projects throughout the
county on course. The Paxton
High School gymnasium
should be ready for use by
the second week of October
as final inspection draws
near. The Mossy Head School
has had the last of the con-
crete floors poured and is
progressing at a timely pace.
The new Walton High School
has had another parking lot
poured behind the east side
of the football stadium
bleachers that is in use for
construction parking. The tie
beams are in place and the

Blackstone Development
Corporation approached the
board about a 42-acre land
donation in Mossy Head to be
considered in an effort to
head off mitigation of devel-
opment impacts as it relates
to concurrency possibly being
implemented in the state of
Florida in the next year.
While the board was willing
to listen to the offer, .the
concurrency model is not in
effect at this time, leaving
the board unwilling to pur-
sue and accept the land offer
without further study of le-
gality and ramifications.
The board held a public
hearing to approve the final
millage and budget as well as
finalized the district's waiver
policies for students entering
the county from other dis-
tricts. (See SCHOOL
BOARD PASSES $135 MIL-
LION BUDGET in the Her-
ald.)
The board approved dues
in the amount of $3,000 as a
member of the Small School
District Council Consortium.
The Consortium was orga-
nized to implement a coordi-
nated legislative effort by
and for small school districts.
The primary focus of this
group is to promote small dis-
trict issues with the Florida
Legislature, statewide
elected officials and state
agency leadership.
Meg Nelson made a pre-
sentation about the Biophilia
Center at Nokuse that is un-
der design and construction,
concerning its use by the
Walton County School Dis-
trict as they enter the first
phase of the project.
The board also approved
trips requests for the golf
teams at Walton and Free-
port High Schools.
The Walton County School
Board will hold their next
regular meeting on October
2,2007, at 5 p.m. at the Tivoli
Administrative Complex.

(FRLA) Northwest Florida
Chapter held a powerhouse
panelist discussion on Mon-
day September 24, at the

Over forty members and
guest attended the gather-
ing.
The panelists were Leg-
endary CEO Peter Bos,
Merrill Land Company and
Great Southern Restaurant

Patronis.
Bos pointed out that the
growth in the Panhandle
area may have slowed a bit,
but he fully expects the popu-
lation and the tourist num-
bers to increase.
"The growth that we are
experiencing is no surprise,"
said Bos. "Destin has a posi-
tive response throughout the
nation because of our
beaches and water beauty."
Bos pointed out that a huge
amount of money was going
to change hands in the near

said.
The second panelist to
speak was Representative
Patronis. Patronis discussed
the impact that the new
Panama City International
Airport will have on the en-
tire Panhandle area."I have
been involved with the air-
port relocation since 1998,"
he said. "The airport will add
to the dynamics that will
help identify our area. We
will need to develop market-
ing strategies that will, at-
tract major airlines."
Merrill agreed with Bos
and Patronis that the whole
Panhandle needs to work as


a unit rather than individual
destinations. "We need to
work collectively from
Pensacola to Panama City,"
Merrill said. Merrill also dis-
cussed the growing trend of
fractional sales. "Fractional
sales will be the future in
condo sales," He commented.
"Condo growth will continue,
just not at the pace we have
seen before."
Bos summed up the rea-
son people keep coming to
the Emerald Coast. "We are
fortunate to haveGod-given
natural beauty and beaches
that are second to none," he
concluded.

Be you a
life-long
resident
of Walton '
County, or ,
a recent
t r a n s -
plant, the
stories
and tales
of the
early years of this
area are of interest
to most. "Grit &
Grace" returns to
Freeport for its
eighth season of
county history and
events that help all
those attending,
learn more about
Walton county.

Every October, the Free-
port High School auditorium
is converted into a scene out
of "Gone With The Wind" or
"Annie Get Your Gun." Some
of the past stage settings
have shown the early days of
Florida Panhandle settlers,
the results of war, religion,
hurricanes, school days and
other events that helped
shape Walton County.
Since the official folk. life
story of Walton County pre-
miered in the late 90's, the
production has been among
the most educational history
lessons about this area and
the events that took place in
the early part of the 1900s.
It has given those attending

r- LT [ tinL I i .


a chance to peer into the lives
of early settlers, learn more
about life before modern con-
veniences, feeling the effects
of a hurricane without hav-
ing any pre-storm warning,
or just get a glimpse into the
lives of the founders and
their relatives.

Throughout the years of the
"Grit & Grace" productions,
hundreds of local performers
have graced the stage nu-
merous times, while others
acted in the productions for
just one run. Either way the
stage has been filled and
many have returned to re-
view other stories, while re-
membering those who had
shared the stage with them
in past productions, but have
since gone on.
This year's production,
"Songs of the Home Grown
Legends," spotlights the lives
of two completely different
men with completely differ-
ent stories, all held together
by the common thread of
their undying love for music.
Walton County residents
Neal "Pappy" McCormick
(1909-1998) and Dwight
"Potter" Brown (1944-1999)
were instrumental in the


lives and ca-
reers of hun-
dreds ofmusi-
1 cians that
I range from
Ip S gospel and
folk, to coun-
try western
and rock.
[ it Their styles of
playing might
be similar, but
their audi-
ences and mu-
sical influences were as dif-
ferent as night and day.'
They impressed, influ-
enced and intrigued many
followers of their variety of
music. The local as well as re-
gional music scene would
never be the same.
Stories of both these men's
lives will be told in the pro-
duction. The scenes will tell
about their lives and careers,
through a variety of stories
collected from Walton County
residents and from those who
have moved to other parts of
the country.
The play will reflect on
their lives through lyrics and
songs the two wrote, and
acted out on stage by many
local characters, some who
were related to McCormick
and Brown.

For the eighth year in a row,
"Grit & Grace" has called
Freeport home and for the
seventh year, the Freeport
High School auditorium has
been the venue for each new
production.
The show runs Oct. 5,6, 7,
12,13 and 14. Tickets are now
on sale and can be purchased
by calling 835-2032 or log-
ging on to

Pinwheels po Peace


STUDENTS in Debbie Blount's second grade class at Butler Elementary participate in
the Pinwheels for Peace project September 24 by making a wish for peace and planting
hand-made pinwheels.

BUTLER ELEMENTARY second-grader,
Aria Gaffrey, is armed with her pinwheel in
hand as she participates in Pinwheels for
Peace, a worldwide nonpolitical project de-
signed to help children celebrate "whirled"
peace.


LAUREN, a student in Erin Brajkovich's
kindergarten class at Butler Elementary,
plants her pinwheel for peace in front of the
school September 24. The planting was re-
scheduled from the official International Day
of Peace date of September 21 due to inclem-
ent weather.


COLORFUL PINWHEELS made by students at Butler Elementary add plenty of color to
the schoolyard. The first Pinwheels for Peace were installed on Sept. 21, 2005. According the
Pinwheels for Peace web site, on September 21, 2006, approximately, one million pinwheels
were planted in 2,500+ locations all over the world.


SECOND-GRADERS at Butler Elementary plant pinwheels for peace. The Pinwheels for
Peace project encourages each student to visually express their feelings about peace by paint-
ing and assembling a pinwheel then planting it in the schoolyard on the International Day
of Peace, September 21.

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

This intent to issue a permit (File
No. 66-0247655-001-DF) to South-
east Investments, Inc., whose address
is 151 Sawgrass Corners Dr., Ponte
Vedra Beach, FL 32082, for consider-
ation of an application to impact 0.11-
acre of jurisdictional wetlands for the
relocation of Corbett Road and to
place 3.28-acres of remaining on site
wetlands into a perpetual conserva-
tion easement as mitigation, is hereby
granted unless a sufficient petition for
an administrative hearing is timely
filed under sections 120.569 and
120.57 of the Florida Statutes as pro-
vided below.

The project is located on Walton
Co. Parcel 25-3N-19-19070-001-
9192, along Corbett Road, east of
Highway 331, Section 25, Township
3-North, Range 19-West, Latitude N
3042'22.45", Longitude W
8607'17.2", on unnamed wetlands,
Class III Waters of the State, In Wal-
ton County.

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

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

Because the administrative hearing
process is designed to redetermine fi-
nal agency action on the application,
Sthe filing of a petition for an adminis-
trative hearing may result in a modifi-
cation of the permit and lease, or even
a denial of the application. Accord-
ingly, the applicant is advised not to
commence construction or other ac-
tivities under this permit/lease until the
deadlines below for filing a petition for
an administrative hearing, or request
for an extension of time have expired.

Under rule 62-110.106(4) of the
Florida Administrative Code, a person
whose substantial interests are af-
fected by the Department's action may
also request an extension of time to
file a petition for an administrative
hearing. The Department may, for
good cause shown, grant the request
for an extension of time. Requests for
extension of time must be filed with
the Office of General Counsel of the
Department at 3900 Commonwealth
Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahas-
see, Florida 32399-300,, before the
applicable deadline. A timeLy..request
for extension of time shall toll the run-
ning time period for filing a petition until
theirequest is acted upon. If a request
islfiled late, the Department may still
grant it upon a motion by the request-
ing party showing that the lailure to
file a request for an extension of time
before the deadline was the result of
excusable neglect.

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

In accordance with rule 62-
110.106(3)(a)(4), petitions for an ad-
ministrative hearing by the applicant
must be filed within 21 days of receipt
of this written notice. Petitions filed by
any persons other than the applicant,
and other than those entitled to writ-
ten notice under section 120.60(3) of
the Florida Statutes, must be filed
within 21 days of publication of the
notice or within 21 days of such no-
tice, regardless of the date of publi-
cation. Under section 120.60(3) of the
Florida Statutes, however; any person
who has asked the Department for
notice of agency action may filea pe-
tition within 21 days of such notice,
regardless of the date of publication.

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

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

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

which shall be the address for service

ceeding; and an explanation of how
the petitioner's substantial interests
are or will be affected by the agency


determination;
(c) A statement of when and how the
petitioner received notice of the

(d) A statement of all disputed issues
of material fact. If there are none, the

agency's proposed action;
(g) A statement of the relief sought by
the petitioner, stating precisely the ac-
tion that the petitioner wishes the

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

This action is final and effective on
the date filed with the Clerk of the De-
partment unless a petition is filed in
accordance with the above. Upon the
timely filing of petition this order will
not be effective until further order of
the Department.
