Mossy Head



school bid



awarded


By PATRICK CASEY
The Walton County School
Board met on Tuesday, Decem-
ber 19, at the Tivoli Administra-
tive Complex to discuss a vari-
ety of items headlined by the
bids on the Mossy Head School
project
The meeting started with
Mildred Wilkerson presenting,
former school board member
Donnie Richardson with a
plaque for his years of service on
the board. Richardson, who did
not run for re-election this year,
attended a reception in his
honor after the meeting with his
wife and two sons present for the
festivities.
Wayne Miller, supervisor of
Administration and Operations,
presented the board with three
bids to build the new Mossy
Head School. Lord and Son Con-
struction came in as the low bid-
der at $18,335,900 for the base
bid. Lord and Son was also the
low bidder after the alternates
were added in to build basket-
ball courts on the site as well as
a covered outside area.
"That comes out to $192 a
square foot. You can see the
proximity of the bids pretty
much indicate where we are
when it comes to the constiuc-
tion of our schools. That's more
money than I have budgeted, to
the tune of $4.5 million to com-
plete this project, but over the
next two years I can add to the


budget to eradicate that deficit.
You are going to be looking at a
$20 million project," said Miller.
"We can look for a completion
date around August 2008."
"At $192 a square foot," Mark
Davis added, "that puts the new
Walton High School at what, $40
million?"
."$42 million," Miller replied
during the meeting.
Board members awarded the
bid to Lord and Son Construc-
tion with a 5-0 vote.
Bill Laird was chosen to rep-
resent the board on the Small
School District Council Consor-
tium Board. of Directors. The
position requires monitoring
legislative activities and work-
ing with other small district's to
push a joint legislative agenda.
Sharon Roberts was chosen
to represent Walton County as
the legislative relations liaison
to serve on the Florida School
Boards Association. Legislative
Committee. Darrell Barnhill
was chosen as the alternate.

The next regularly scheduled
meeting of the Walton County
School Board will be held on
Tuesday, January 16, at 5 p.m.
at the Tivoli Administrative
Complex. T,)e board decided not
to hold a meetingg on Tuesday,
January 2, as the school system
will get back to work that day,
with students returning on
Thursday, January 4.


PAXTONRURITANcharter member Johh Baldwin was on hand
when the monument was dedicated by the club.




Paxton Ruritans


honor h
By KAREN JOHNSON
The Paxton Ruritan Club re-
cently honored, their charter
members by placing a monu-
ment in their honor at the front
of the Paxton Town Hall
entrance. Guest speaker John
E. Baldwin, an active Ruritan
member and the only living
charter member, joined families
of the charters members, along
with Mayor Wanda Smith, Pax-
ton Town Council members and
local dignitaries for the unveil-
ing.
The Paxton Ruritan Club
was chartered in August 1952.
John Baldwin was instrumental
in starting the club from infor-
mation he received at a confer-
ence he attended as an agricul-
ture teacher. The local area was
just getting into farming be-
cause the wood mills were dry-
ing up. They needed something
to pull the community together
and help build up the area. A few
adult leaders were emerging
and a club would help harness
the leadership and bring close-
ness to the community. Twenty-
five men agreed, and the Pax-
ton Ruritan Club was
chartered. The club originally
met in the Paxton school lunch'
room.
The men were looking for a
way to generate money for
projects when they found out
that a principality could receive
revenue from the sale of ciga-
rettes. They decided that they
should make the area, a
town. The town of Paxton was
incorporated by a Legislative
Act on July 2, 1953. Once it be-
came a town, it needed a town
hall building and other
things. The men acquired the
land and started the process of
getting a building. Not only
would this building be used as
the Paxton Town Hall, but as a
place for health services, meet-
ings, and community services
for the people of Paxton and the
surrounding area. The town fa-
thers and the Paxton Ruritan
Club were the same people, and
thereby worked together on all


heritage
projects. They established the
recreation park, cemetery,.
' helped fund' special education
events, sponsored students to
state and national FFA confer-
ences, and gave scholarships to
students to attend OWJC.
In the past, the club has hon-
ored teachers, students and
community leaders for their con-
tributions to the community. In
1986, the Paxton Heritage Fes-
tival began to educate children/
students on their heritage
through demonstrators and ex-
hibits.
The Paxton Ruritan Club
over the years has worked with
the community to improve facili-
ties and beautify the town. Some
of the projects in recent
memory include purchasing a
TV, VCR coffee brewer and ice
maker for the Town Hall and,
acquiring a state Forestry grant
to purchase, plant, irrigate and
maintain 51 native trees to our
Heritage Park. Purchasing and
maintaining the 'Welcome' signs
coming into Paxton from the
north and south city limits, as
well as purchasing the Gladys
Milton Library sign for the
Flowersview community.
In the recent past, they spon-
sored a team to the American
Cancer Society Relay for Life
event in DeFuniak Springs and
brought a mu-seum-quality,
Bible exhibit to the area.
Ruritans host the Farm/Home
Auction every spring, giving lo-
cals as well as visitors a forum
to trade goods. They have given
Christmas dinner and groceries
to four deserving families each
December and have sponsored
the Harlem Ambassadors, a
drug awareness program, to
come to the community and
present their educational "Say
No to Drug" Campaign. For the
past several years, they have
also sponsored a team for the
Paxton Little League.

For the Paxton Ruritans, re-
membering their rich heritage
helps them prepare for a
brighter future.

OKALOOSA-WALTON COL-
LEGE (OWC) FOUNDATION
won its case against a legal chal-
lenge filed by a Pensacola-based
environmental group. The group
sought to enjoin OWC from sell-
ing a portion of the mattie Kelly
estate property in Destin. The
court found that the environ-
mental group, Pensacola Gulf
Coastkeepers, Inc. lacked
standing to bring the challenge,
and that the Foundation did not
act improperly, nor violate the
state Sunshine Law in voting to
authorize sale of the property.
The Foundation planned to
place proceeds from the sale of
the 12-acre property into the
OWC Mattie Kelly Cultural and
Environmental Institute's per-
manent endowment fund.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, DECEMBER 28, 2006


REVIEW
from front

January (cont'd)
BEACH MANAGEMENT
DIRECTOR Brad Pickel held a
beach nourishment workshop on
Jan. 9.. Pickel said that he ex-
pected that the majority of Wal-
ton County's beachfront would
be designated as "critically
eroded" in 2006, as a result of
the active 2005 hurricane and
storm season. This would
qualify a beach renourishment
program for state funding and
permits, and the Department of
Environmental Protection has
agreed to expedite permitting.
U.S. SENATOR BILL
NELSON visited DeFuniak
Springs, discussing a variety of
national, state and local topics
at a town hall meeting. Among
the subjects discussed were the
Senate confirmation hearings on
Supreme Court nominee
Samuel Alito.
THE WALTON COUNTY
Board of County Commissioners
(BCC) decided to move forward
with a six-year consolidation
plan for the Walton County Fire
Rescue (WCFR) organization.
The plan had drawn equally en-
thusiastic praise and condemna-
tion. The BCC had named Eddie
Rivers as Fire Manager, and
Rivers reviewed a master plan
prepared by a consultant group.
Rivers hoped to end what he
called a "piecemeal" fire service.
Rivers admitted that the new
plan would likely result in a re-
duction of volunteers, but said
that the ideal system would be
a combination of full-time pro-
fessionals and volunteers. Crit-
ics of the plan included Liberty
Fire District Commissioner
Tony D. Roy Jr., who character-
ized the consolidation plan as a
"hostile takeover."
THE FREEPORT CITY
COUNCIL announced members
of its new Recreation Commitee,
including County Commissioner
Rosier Cuchens. Freeport City
Planner Latilda Henninger re-
ported a strong interest in rede-
veloping the downtown area
with a "flavor of old Freeport."
OKALOOSA-WALTON COL-
LEGE (OWC) basketball teams
lost both the men's and women's
home opening games. In high
school basketball, South Walton,
Freeport, and Baker had wins in
the boys division, with Paxton
andPonce de Leonyvictorious in
girls' division'.

OED ITORIAL

LETTERS TO PERSONAL

THE EDITOR COMMENTS


In their own words


By RON KELLEY
With this issue, we say goodbye
to 2006 and begin to pin our
hopes on 2007. It has been quite
a year. Like all years, there have
been highs and lows, great mo-
ments in history and fiascos we
wish we could forget.
As someone who believes in the
power of the spoken (and quoted)
word, I think it's only fitting that
we have a final word from some
of the people who have made this
a year to remember. Here, now,
are the most notable quotes from
2006.
"I have the feeling about 60
percent of what you say is crap."
-"Late Show" host David
Letterman, to FOX News' Bill
O'Reilly.
"I feel very comfortable up here.
The lighting could be better, but
I can still see the whites of your
eyes." -Vice President Dick
Cheney, at the annual Radio &
Television Correspondents' Asso-
ciation dinner.
"To the vice president's credit,
he did own up to it. On FOX
News he said the fault was his,
he can't blame anybody else. Boy,
it's amazing, the only time you
get accountability out of this ad-
ministration is when they are ac-
tually holding a smoking gun." -
Bill Maher.
"I don't care what people are
saying uptown or wherever they
are. This city will be chocolate at
the end of the day." -New Or-
leans Mayor Ray Nagin.
"Well, I really think he shatters
* the myth of white supremacy
once and for all." -Rep; Charlie
Rangel, when asked what he
thought about President Bush.
"You may end up with a differ-
ent math, but you're entitled to
your math. I'm entitled to the
math." -Bush adviser Karl

Editor:
I read that our county commis-
sioners are in the process of writ-
ing an ordinance which will pro-
hibit the riding of all-terrain ve-
hicles (ATV s) on dirt roads within
Walton County. The primary rea-
son stated for this prohibition was
liability and safety (due to larger
vehicles being on the roads).
Mention was also made of dam-
age to the dirt roadways by the
ATVs.
I wonder if any thought was
given to another group of individu-
als utilizing our roadways? That
is the ones riding bicycles on
paved and unpaved roads. Is
there not a worry of liability or
safety here? There are much
larger vehicles on the roads with
the bicycles. Almost all of those
larger vehicles are being oper-
ated by individuals who are re-
quired to obtain a driver s licenses
and provide proof of insurance
prior to operating their vehicles.
Surprisingly, the operators of
those larger vehicles must also
pay taxes each year in order to
operate their vehicles, (head-
lights, turn signals, brakes, and
brake lights ect.) Most ATVs I
have observed have headlights
and brake lights along with hand
and foot-operated brakes. Very
few bicycles have this safety
equipment.
The ATV s were going to be al-
lowed to operate only on unpaved
roadways with low posted speed
limits. The bicycles can operate
on highways with speed limits of
up to 55 MPH. No safety fears
here? Could there not be a liabil-
ity case made here when a larger
vehicle collides with a bike on a
county maintained road?
The damage done by ATV s to
roads would not, in my opinion,
be much worse than that done by
horse riders on dirt roads. In our
area, one without taxpayer-pro-
vided bike/walking paths, we
have a lot of both horse and ATV
riders, (it is difficult to ride bikes
on sand roads). I would suggest
that ifa prohibition is to be imple-
mented against one set of indi-
viduals, then the same prohibition
should be levied against all three;
ATV s, horses, and bicycles. This
would solve the safety and liabil-


ity issues along with 'damage to
dirt roads. Of course, I am bet-
ting that this will not happen to two
of the three mentioned groups.
Anyone want to take a wild guess,
which ones that would be?

REVIEW
from front

DIALOGUE CONTINUED
between critics and proponents
of the Walton County Fire Res-
cue (WCFR) consolidation plan.
Libert Fire District (LFD) and
Argyle Fire District refused to
sign a proposed agreement sent
to them by Walton County. LFD
Chief Roger Roy said he had
sent a reworked draft to the
county, and had received an-
other draft with "significant"
changes, that solved some prob-
lems. Another area of control;
versy, that of cross-training
emergency medical service
workers as fire fighters, re-
mained active. Freeport Fire
District chose not to join in the
consolidation, saying it had ad-
equate resources to take care of
its own area.
FLORIDA RESIDENTS liv-
ing in designated flood zones
were encouraged to purchase
flood insurance, in the wake of
the disastrous 2005 tropical
storm season.
THE OKALOOSA-WALTON
COLLEGE (OWC) Board of
Trustees voted unanimously to'
terminate the contract of em-
ployment of Northwest Florida
Symphony Orchestra (NFSO)
conductor Demetrius Fuller.
Fuller reportedly set up a sepa-
rate organization, the North-
west Florida Symphony Associa-
tion (NFSA), along with a sepa-
rate bank account, whichthe
board deemed an impermissible
exercise of unilateral financial
authority. Fuller also reportedly
failed to attend certain sym-
phony events, and to meet with
OWC President Robert
Richburg. Fuller's publicist de-
nied that Fuller had acted with
the knowledge of several of the
NFSO's donors, and certain fac-
ulty and OWC staff. The
orchestra's finances were under
investigation by the Okaloosa
County Sheriff's Office.
THE FLORIDA
CHAUTAUQUA hosted its
third annual Gospel Talent
Search, with two divisions com-
peting at the theater on Baldwin

management director Brad
Pickel reported that he had re-
ceived delivery of a bulldozer to
be used in the beach restoration
project. The restoration began
on the west end of the Walton
County beaches eroded in the
2005 storm season. Pickel re-
ported that 90 percent of the
beachfront property owners had
already granted construction
easements.
THE WALTON COUNTY
BOARD of County Commission-
ers (BCC) approved a large-scale
amendment package last No-
vember, but two of the amend-
Sments drew objections from the
state. The two problem amend-
ments dealt with an exemption

ments for affordable housing de-
velopments, and a proposal to

controversial, dealing with po-

when area residents noticed.
that the developer had built a
series of six culverts side by side
over a small, spring-fed stream
feeding Big Redfish Lake, rather
than a bridge. A compromise
was reached lifting construc-
tion to a smaller area, but one
resident claimed that construc-
tion continued outside that area.

MEMBERS of the Walton
County Board of County Com-
missioners (BCC) and the may-
ors of DeFuniak Springs and
Freeport went to Pensacola to

lems and concerns associated
with the four-laning of Hwy. 331.
Among concerns discussed

CITIZEN ACTIVIST Don
Crim rarely missed a meeting of
the Walton County Commission.
Along with people like David
Cramer and others, Crim kept a
close eye on county activities and
never hesitated to speak out
when he thought commissioners
were straying off-track. More
than o'ne commissioner re-
marked that he probably knew
Walton County governmental
history better than they did.
Crim died suddenly in Novem-

THE STATE APPROVED as
compliant the recently submit-
ted large-scale amendments re-
classifying thousands of acres in
Walton County. The residents
dealt largely with increasing
residential development and
density. However, the state De-
partment of Community Affairs
cautioned the Walton County.
Board of County Commissioners
that additional amendments in-
creasing residential develop-
ment would be difficult to jus-
tify without a needs assessment.
THE WALTON COUNTY

gram. South Walton Fire Dis-
trict would conduct the program.

house at the Coastal Branch of
the Walton County Library on
the subject of local archaeology.
Mikell, who was sponsored by
the South Walton Community

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, DECEMBER 28, 2006


REVIEW
from 6-a

Avenue for more than 60 years.
New computers, completely
renovated offices, the latest
technology and a complete
make-over of the paper was be-
gun. The paper has been pub-
lished continuously since 1888
and the new office is located just
up the street on the corner of
Baldwin Avenue and 7th Street.
IT WAS WILDY RUMORED
among those who lived in and
around the Seaside community
in south Walton County that the
entire town was going to be sold.
It did not take long for those ru-
mpor to be quashed when Rick
Severance, CEO of Seaside, de-
nied claims that the town was
on the bidding block. He did tell
.reporters and others that
intrawest w.as purchasing the
operations portions of the rent-
als inside the community.
Severance said that the rea-
son owners Daryl and Robert
Davis wanted to sell the rental
operations division, was that
,they could then dedicate more
time to the completion of the
town center, set to be finished
sometime in the next five years.

April,,
A MORRISON SPRINGS
project got a push forward to-
ward becoming a "multi-purpose
facility" in the east central part
of Walton County. The plan is to
protect and preserve the
springs, making them useful for
citizens and visitors alike.
Plans include a boat ramp, a
swimming area, and a board-
walk to be constructed over the
next few years. It would also
contain plans for a two-story
pavillion, and picnic tables, and
for making the springs a hands-
on environmental classroom.
:The project cost is estimated at
around' $400,000. A $200,000
allocation for Morrison Springs
:has already been requested by
state Senator Durell Peaden.
THE CITY OF PAXTON and
the Paxton School got good news
at an April 3 Walton County
School Board meeting. In a 4-0
vote, members voted.to pay a
price of nearly $4.26 million and
rejected the $75,000 in alternate
additions to the gym. Wayne.
Miller, supervisor ofAdministra-
tion and Operations for the Wal-
ton, County School Board, in-
SFoirned the boa.dthat $500,0001
g left '6 r -from th,:. -ing L,,dit -.n
at Paxton High School could go
. toward that project.
S CONTROVERSY FOL-
LOWED a Herald/Breeze ar-
ticle reporting that some par-


ents were unhappy about their
kids receiving so-called "shot
glasses" as party favors at the
Freeport High School junior/se-
nior prom. The complaint was
filed by parent Jack Frost about
the gifts his daughter received
as a junior attendee. Such favors
are selected by the prom com-
mittee students and overseen by
the principal, who reports'to the
superintendent and board of
education.
Frost and others want to see'
a countywide policy that would
ban the schools from giving such
favors, which may encourage
student drinking of alcoholic
beverages. No decision was
made on banning the glasses or
other similar favors at the next
school-sponsored event.
WALTON COUNTY'S pockets
got a lot more filled during the
weekend of April 22-24. The
2006 Seabreeze Jazz Festival
once again sold more than
10,000 tickets to the annual
"smooth jazz" festival and
brought in hundreds of thou-
sands of dollars to the local
economy. Event sponsor WSBZ
Radio said that theirs was the
biggest ticketed event in the
county and probably on the Em-
erald Coast. The event had
moved three times in the past
four years, but has always re-
mained in Walton County.
ACCESS TO THE BEACH
was returned to the public at 25
beach locations in Walton
County, with more to follow. This
came after all public dune walk-
overs were put out of commis-
sion by Hurricane Dennis in
July, 2005. The beach accesses
were reopened just in time for
the spring and summer tourist
season. They were 17 more
beach walkovers scheduled to,
reopen before Memorial Day.
THE WALTON COUNTY
SCHOOL Board voted to begin
.construction on the Paxton gym
and the Mossy Head school
project. The new construction of
the Paxton gym was approved
by the board and Speegle Con-
struction was awarded the con-
tract for $4,460,000, with a de-
duction of $200,00 for changes
in the roofing system. *
In Mossy Head, the new
school project was given the go-
ahead and awarded Sasnet Con-
struction the contract to begin
the project. The contract was for
them to clear the 20 acre parcel
of land for $32,000. At the same
April 17 meeting, the board ap-
proved the the roofing project at
Bay Elementary- School. The
c.:ntrr3:ct was awarded to Bel
Mac Roofing with a bid of
$231,930.
THE WALTON SCHOOL
DISTRICT received the results
from the FCAT Writers Perfor-


mance tests. The results showed
that Walton County students
scored above average in all but
two categories, where they
matched the state level. Accord-
ing to statistics provided by the
state, the students completed es-
says and were judged on how
well they met the three require-
ments regarding the effective-
ness of the writing assignments.
AT THE APRIL 27 DeFuniak
Springs City Council meeting,
three councilmen were sworn in.
Qualifying time was a quiet af-
fair and some residents said
they didn't know the seats were
up for reelection. Without oppo-
sition, James Coffield, Don
Harrison and James Huffman
were returned to office. Council-
man Huffman was again ap-
pointed Mayor Pro-Tempore and
meetings will continue to be held
on the second and fourth Mon-
day of every month.
PONCE DE LEON won their
first fast-pitch, District 1, Class
2A championship softball game
after defeating Cottondale, 11-
1. PdL edged Vernon, 5-4 in the
semifinals just days earlier.
Hillary Harper was the winning
pitcher for the Lady Pirates.
COUNTY GROWTH is ex-
pected to outpace' Walton
County school capacity. Wayne
Miller, supervisor of operations
and administration for the Wal-
ton County School Board, told
the board that with the way the
county is growing, there will
soon be a problem .having
enough seats for students in the
county schools. Miller said the
speed of growth may to some
extent outpace the concurrency
law due to go into effect in the
county in 2008. The board heard
several proposals and discussed
various options. No solutions
were reached.

MAY

COUNTY OFFICIALS asked
the city of Freeport to join in a
joint effort to make traffic
concurrency uniform through-
out the county. The problem is
that when city and county gov-
ernments use different methods
to count the number of esti-
mated 'trips' by a vehicle, in re-
lation to a planned business or
residential development, the re-
sult can be too many vehicles on
roads that are already over-
crowded.
Mayor Mickey Marse agreed
to meet with county officials in
a workshop session, but said
that soith Wa.to:n ,was overe
built and now they want u's to
pay for the ro'adwas improve'
ments."

asked the city council to consider
allowing them to bill people for
their services as a way to raise
funds to hire more firefighters.
Impact fees were another pos-
sible funding source, as were ad-
ditional taxes or fees charged to
each utility bill.
Councilman Roy McLeod said
the problem with those ideas is
"fairness." As for higher taxes,
McLeod said "We have enough
taxes as it is."
City Manager Kim Presnell fa-
vored charging fees on each util-
ity bill. Councilman Don
Harrison agreed, saying the fee
should be based on the size and
value of the home, so that the
larger the house, the more one
would pay.

people would be upset because
we want to charge for services,
but the kind of protection you
get is based on what you're will-
ing to pay for it."
THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS
Cemetery Board heard from
even more angry citizens re-
garding the operation of Magno-
lia Cemetery. City Manager Kim
Presnell admitted that "mis-
takes have been made," but of-
fered a series of changes to the
old cemetery ordinances. The
problem is that the city does not
employ enough workers at the
cemetery to keep all plots neat
and well-manicured. Over the
last few years, the city quietly
issued greater restrictions on
the newer sections as they were
opened for use. The confusion
created by these changes was
compounded due to the fact that
some details of the ordinances
were either not followed at all
or else were randomly and se-
lectively enforced.
After the Herald-Breeze re-.
ported on the problem, an out-
cry by the citizenry caused the
city to resurrect a cemetery
board and revamp the old ordi-


nances.
THE WALTON COUNTY
School Board expressed satisfac-
tion with early FCAT results
that showed that third-graders
ranked eighth in the state in
mathematics, ninth in reading
and tenth in reading.
IN MAY, we reported that the
Seabreeze Jazz Festival, held at
Seascape Resort, had again bro-
ken earlier attendance records.
Approximately 10,000 tickets
were sold over the three-day
event. Among the performers
were Kem, Chuck Loeb, The
Rippingtons, Rick Braun and
Brian Culberthson.
THE FIRST DISTRICT
COURT of Appeals ruled that
the permit allowing the joint
Destin-Walton County beach
restoration project was invalid,
after some home-owners filed
suit hoping to stop the $22 mil-
lion project.
The six homeowners, whose
property deeds extended to the
Gulf, sought to keep county con-
tractors off "their" beach.
The state, the DEP and oth-
ers asked the court for a re-hear-
ing on the issue. In the mean-
time, the project was halted af-
ter the death of another sea
turtle during the restoration,
and.then resumed on May 15.
THE WALTON COUNTY


TAXPAYERS Association spon-
sored a seminar on open records
law, the Sunshine law and
citizen's First Amendment
rights. The seminar featured
Sunshine Law expert Barbara
Peterson, attorney and spokes-
person for the First Amendment
Foundation, a watchdog group
dedicated to keeping govern-
ment officials and their meet-
ings in the Sunshine.
Although the seminar was
well-attended, not a single


county commissioner, school
board member or city council-
man attended.
WITH MORE THAN $5 mil-
lion in assets, the South Walton
Fire District approved building
a four-story $1.5 million train-
ing center, dispatch and storage
center. It will be located behind
the fire station on CR-393 and
will be built by Dalton Brothers
Construction, and DAG Archi-
tects.
THE BOARD OF DIREC-


TORS of the Eucheeanna Com-
munity Center unveiled a his-
torical marker commemorating
the community as among the
earliest in Walton County. Board
member William Steadley-
Campbell, a descendent of those
early settlers spoke to the crowd
about the importance of the
community's heritage and the
role it played in the settling of
Walton County.
Board president Wayne Brown
also recognized local dignitaries


and those who had attended
school in the old two-room struc-
ture.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, DECEMBER 28, 2006


REVIEW
from 8-a

pay for the rest.
HARKENING BACK to an
earlier age, the Walton School
District conformed to a new
state law, which allows school to
start later and end later. School
already lasts longer than it once
did, thanks to spring breaks for
school kids and in-service days
for teachers. School began to
start earlier so that the first se-
mester ended before the Christ-
mas break.
The new law keeps the extra
time off during the school year,
but classes will now start no ear-
lier than two weeks before La-
bor Day and stretch into June.
THE WALTON COUNTY
HERITAGE Museum hosted
'Neal McCormick Day,' playing
tribute to the most well-known
steel-guitar player in the Pan-
handle. McCormick's former
wife and singing partner, Peggy
O-Neal, was on hand, along with
their son, Tommy. The pair per-
formed, along with their band
and other area musicians.
Milton fiddler Henry Botts gave
a talk about his lifelong friend
and displayed rare McCormick
memorabilia.
Although McCormick never
reached the dizzying heights
achieved by some country stars,
he was the first man to electrify
a steel guitar, the first man to
play an electric instrument on
the Grand Old Opry (he knocked
the WSM broadcast off the air)
and he built the first four-sided
steel guitar. That might have
made him nch had not the pedal
steel been built soon after. Its
popularity soon overshadowed
lMcCormick's instrument.
McCormick is probably best-
remembered as having given a
young Hank Williams his first
fulltime job as a working musi-
cian. They remained close dur-
ing William's troubled life and
McCormick had just agreed to
join Williams' band when Will-
iams died suddenly of an alco-
hol and drug overdose on New
Year's Day 1953.
NATrE WALTON COUNTY
residents will not recognize
Seagroe Beach after 'Down-
town Seagrove' becomes a real-
ity. The current buildings and
much of the native foliage are
scheduled for destruction and
plans were approved for a 2S-
room hotel on the corner ofCR-
30A and CR.-395. as well as an-
other restaurant, as proposed by.


SHARON ROBERTS took
over the District 3 school board
seat in November after winning
the election. Roberts replaced
Donnie Richardson, who chose
not to run.

a company called DST Carni-
val.
THE PGA BOEING Champi-
onship Golf Tournament was
held in Destin, ArtsQuest, spon-
sored by the Cultural Arts As-
sociation was held in south Wal-
ton and the Panama City Iron
Man Triathlon were all held on
a single weekend in May, mak-
ing a parking lot US 98, while
filling shops, restaurants and
hotels. It was a great weekend
for tourism, but a hard weekend
to endure for year-round resi-
dents.
DESPITE PLANS TO set up
an operations center on U.S.,
331S, the Florida Department of
Transportation decided to aban-
don that idea and open shop in


Holmes County instead.
FDOT spokesman Tommy
Speights said, "We thought we
had it all worked out, then a
traffic density study said no."
In a way, FDOT was hoisted
by its own petard. For years they
had said that traffic counts on
the highway did not justify wid-
ening it to four lanes, but when
FDOT wanted to open a main-
tenance yard there, the expected
FDOT traffic 'trips' proved to be
too much for the already over-
loaded roadway. Although the
county commission approved the
project in exchange for a turn
lane at Rock Hill, the state lo-
cated their center elsewhere.
MANY NEIGHBORS were
upset over a proposed residen--
tial condominium development
going in on Shoemaker Drive in
DeFuniak Springs, across from
Lake Stanley Park. The project
had voluntarily reduced the
number of units from 16 per acre
down to nine, for a total of 90
units, and had met all other city
requirements. Over the objec-
tions of neighborhood residents,
the city council approved the
project 5-0.
The project never began,
though. After clearing the land,
the developers put the property
up for sale.
AS GAS PRICES soared about
$3 per gallon, Ed Armbruster
was one of the few DeFuniak
Springs residents who just
smiled and kept driving.
Armbruster owns a 2002 Toyota
Prius, a hybrid car, which runs

on gasoline and a battery sys-
tem, and gets nearly 50 miles
per gallon. He said newer mod-
els do even better.
. Although he has to travel to
Ft. Walton Beach to find a quali-
fied mechanic, Armbruster feels
it's worth it. "You pass a lot of
gas stations," he said.
A LARGE DEPOSIT of white
beach sand was identified off-
shore and deemed as being of
sufficient quantity for use in a
major beach restoration project
for other critically eroded beach
areas throughout coastal Walton
County.
According to Brad Pickel of the
South Walton Tourist Develop-
ment Council, an "ancient
beach" was discovered directly
south of Sandestin. He called it
a "drowned offshore beach" and
said it would supply more than
10 million cubic yards of sand,
enough to restore the rest of the
Walton County shoreline.
ALTHOUGH LIFEGUARDS
had been stationed at six public
beach accesses, county deputies
still patrol the beaches, dealing
with law-breakers. Capt. Danny
Glidewell said they had added
another two deputies last year,
bringing the total number of
beach patrol deputies up to 12.
In addition to handling miscre-
ants, the deputies also still en-
gage in rescuing swimmers, the
same as before the South Wal-
ton Fire District was engaged to
provide lifeguards.
THE SOUTH WALTON Tour-
ist, Development Council cel-


ebrated its 20 year anniversary
with a huge party at the
Sandestin Hilton, complete with
jugglers, dancers and more.
IT WAS A GREAT football
sports year for Freeport. The
Bulldogs defeated the Walton
Braves and the South Walton
Seahawks to sweep the inter-
county football jamboree. The
Bulldogs were also one of only
12 teams in Florida to receive
the FHSAA Fred E. Rozelle
Sportsmanship Award, given to
teams that showed exemplary
sportsmanship during the regu-
lar season and playoffs.
JUNE


.COUNCIL approve the first
phase of a new city park within
the Hammock Bay residential
development. It will have play-
ing fields for football, soccer and
baseball/softball. Mayor Marse
encouraged the council to ap-
prove the plans, sang, "Let's
get the children playing ball."
AS CONSTRUCTION
CREWS worked on the new
county jail north of DeFuniak
Springs, the Walton County
Commission decided to expand
the project to include an addi-
tional 260 beds to the phase one
plan of 324 beds. The change
came after commissioners

me, 0 Holy Spirit of Christ,
though I do not feel you."
If the Holy Spirit is
ungrieved, He will witness.
that we are the children of
God. He will enthrone Christ


as King of our life. He will
keep the self-life in the place
of death. He will give us hun-
ger for the things of God. He
will give us power in bearing
witness.


In order to have a strong
and blessed Christian expe-
rience daily, the one thing is
to see that we do not grieve
the Spirit. We cannot grieve
Him away, but we can greatly


restrain His gracious work
by impure speech, or failure
in love. This New Year, let us
see to it that we do not grieve
the Spirit by living inconsis-
tently.


Making a fresh

start in the New Year


By Dr. Robert M. Jaye


What ever our condition,
we can always make a new
start. In Ephesians 4:22-24
are found words equal to this:
"Put off concerning the
former conversation the old
man, which is corrupt accord-
ing to the deceitful flesh. Be
renewed in the spirit if your
:mind. Put on the new man,
which after God is created in
righteousness and true holi-
ness." We need to take our
, place in the School of Christ
this New Year.
Let us now put off the old
person by an immediate act
of faith in the living Spirit of
God. Let us put away those
ways of speech and life which
are unworthy of the children
of God. Do it now, and look


up to the Holy Spirit to keep
renewing you in the spirit of
your mind.

Love
The J&wish People

By Dr. Charles
Satterwhite
Pastor, Vfieport UMC
* I'm noticing in the news reports of a great rise in anti-
Semitism.
A cartoon art exhibit recently opened in a Muslim
country which blatantly portrays Jews as the root of all
evil. It also ridicules the holocaust as a myth. As people
flock to the art show they walk from picture to picture
under of spigot of unfeigned poison.
This should be a great concern not only to Jews but to
all of God's people. We must not forget, that only eighty
years ago, there was a huge price that the Jews paid for
hatred stirred up against them by Adolph Hitler. Yet the
time is coming when God's manifest favor on the Jewish
people will be so great it will be undeniable.
Here is what God spoke through Zechariah the
prophet: "'In those days ten men from all the nations will
grasp the garment of a Jew saying, Let us go with you, for
we have heard that God is with you." (Zechariah 8:23) As
far as I can tell, that prophecy has not yet been fulfilled.
In the annals of history, the Jewish people are par-
ticularly gifted in intelligence and creativity. Their contri-
butions to the world's wealth of knowledge and beauty are
overwhelming. Yet, more is coming. The time is coming
when people will want to hang out around them just be-
cause it will be so clear; "God is with you."
How foolish for anyone to set their heart against what
God cherishes and blesses. Those who do set themselves
against God himself. I think we should get a head start on
this prophecy before we can hardly squeeze in around
them. Love the Jew! Pray for the peace of Jerusalem-
that is God's request!
If it has been a while since you attended church, stop
by here on your way to eternity. We begin lifting up Jesus
at 9 a.m. with Sunday School, and worship @ 10 a.m.-
invite a friend and come be thou with us and we will do
thee good.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, DECEMBER 28, 2006


Southern college football saw interesting days in 2006


Sports commentary
By CHUCK HINSON
What a year in college foot-
ball. The underdogs have
risen to the top, the mighty
have fallen, school records
have been shattered and
coaches heads have rolled.
The only thing that remains
the same is the controversy
over the BCS and its calcu-
lations.
Who would ever imagined
that Rutgers would be in the
top 10 for so many weeks,
under the helm of its first
year coach?
Other teams like Louisville
and undefeated Boise State
are also booking their plane
tickets for bowl games on
New Years Day.
Then there are those teams
that have made their own
records, and these are not the
records you see hanging in
the trophy case. These are
records that both the coaches
and the teams want erased
from the publics memory.
My college team, Florida'
State, has made i t's own his-
tory in 2006. From having
the worst record since 1974,
the resignation of offensive
coach and son of Bobby
Bowden, Jeff Bowden step-
ping down after five years of
controversial play calling and
the fastest fall out of the top
25 polls in the school's history
under Bowden, the Semi-
noles have had a dreary sea-
son.
Despite their 6-6 record,
they are heading to a bowl
game. They will be facing the
UCLA Bruins who on Dec. 2,
toppled their crosstown rival,
No. 2 USC, and threw the
Trojans out of a national title
fight.


Florida State and UCLA
fight it out in San Francisco
in the Emerald Bowl on Dec.
27. Florida State and Bobby
Bowden will try to regain
some playing dignity and end
the season with one more win
than losses.
Miami also had a season
that they would love to for-
get. They went 5-6 this year,
had a major tragedy, 13 play-
ers got expelled from school
and the head coach, Larry
Coker, was given his walking
papers.
After six years and a na-
tional title with the Hurri-
canes, they wanted him gone.
In my opinion, Miami has
made a terrible mistake by
letting Coker go. His style of
coaching, his ability to deal
with situations, and his ex-
perience, not to mention his
career record.at Miami, make
him hard to replace.
The Hurricanes will be
making a bowl appearance
on Dec. 31 when tHey play
Nevada in the MPC Com-
puter Bowl. The fired coach
will be on the sidelines,
coaching one more time.
Standing beside him on the
field will be defensive coordi-
nator and new Miami head
football coach, Randy Shan-
non. Many think he served
his time well with the Hurri-
canes and he should be given
the chance to take the helm
of the team.
Shannon thought he was
also right for the team and
deserved the chance to take
the team to the next level and
step up recruiting efforts in
the spring.
Though he will not be
wearing orange and green
after the MPC Bowl, I would
keep my eyes open for Larry


Coker's name on the screen
during Sunday and Monday
night football.
Our neighbor to the north,
Alabama, is on the hunt for
their new leader. After Mik.e
Shula was let go, even
though last year he had a 10-
2 season, the Tide wants to
change direction.
Many held their breath
thinking Steve Spurrier
would make his next SEC,
home in Tuscaloosa. After be-
ing courted by Bama, the
Gamecocks extended his con-
tract, his annual pay and the
school will have to pay out his
contract if they let him go be-
fore his contract expires.
Apparently, Spurrier will
continue to wear the red and
white colors of South Caro-
lina, staying there until a.
better offer comes along.
The only reason that Au-
burn isn't playing for the big
prize is due to Arkansas,
who Florida beat in the SEC


championship and Georgia.
The Bulldogs of Georgia had
a horrible season with losses
to Kentucky and, get ready,
to gasp, Vanderbilt during
the 2006 season.
But despite falling to
Florida, they got the ulti-
mate rush when they
toppled Auburn. Georgia
travels the short distance to
Atlanta to take on Virginia
Tech in the.Dec. 30 Peach
Bowl.
Then there is Ohio State
with their perfect record and
the 12-1 Gators who will face
off in the national champi-
onship game in Glendale, AZ
on Jan. 8. What a whirlwind
ride this has been.
Of course Michigan is hot
under the color because of
Florida jumping them in the
BCS standings, USC is
devastated because being
dragged out of the second
place spot by their rivals and
unranked UCLA. The


Gators are sitting pretty.
Despite an horrific kicking
and point-after game, the
Gators have pulled out wins
in the second half that has
shocked everyone. With the
Chris Leak and Tim Tebow
combination Urban Meyer's
boys are ready for the big


game.
It is at least reassuring, if
you are a Gator fan or not,
that a Florida team is head-
ing to the big game and at
least one of the three Sun-
shine State teams will have
a positive season end to
2006.

PDL sweeps
Holmes County
tourney
By PATRICK CASEY
The Ponce de Leon Pirates
won all four games in the
championship round of the
Holmes County Christmas
Tournament held in Boni-
fay.
The PDL girls got a 54-44
victory over Holmes County
to capture the 2006 crown
as Maggie Wright and Allex
McCormick scored 11 points
apiece to capture the title.
The Pirates connected on
21-of-29 shooting at the free
throw line to help their cause.
PDL (8-2)- led 36-21 after
three, quarters only to see
the Bluedevils catch fire and
cut the deficit to two points
late in the contest.
Holmes County was hurt by
poor free throw shooting of
their own as they hit on only
14-of-32 shots from the char-
ity stripe. Brianna Belcher
led the Bluedevils with 12
points in the game.
Jesse Paulk and Kyle
Shull scored 15 points apiece
as PDL won the boys side
of the event 54-46. PDL fell.
behind early in the contest
but went to halftime tied. The
Pirates(7-3) pulled away in
the second half to grab their
second win of the season over
the Bluedevils.
Game Notes:'PDL's girls
have won ten straight games
over the Bluedevils. PDL is
10-8 against Holmes County
over the last seven seasons.
PDL already had a win over
Holmes County earlier in
the season. PDL beat the
Bluedevils 60-46 in PDL on
November 20. PDL's girls
will return to Bonifay for a
final rematch on January 25.
PDL won the girls and boys
junior varsity titles on Sat-
urday as well. PDL played
the game without junior Tyla
Yates, who injured her knee
in practice on Friday and
was on crutches for the con-
test. The PDL boys beat
Holmes County in their
season opener ii LJR. 71-33.
The two boys 1s will
play their third and final bat-
tler in Bonifay on January
23.

that don't reflect this area. As
for the beaches of south Walton,
Marse spoke plainly about years
of abandoning beach accesses
and excessive beachfront devel-
opment that's spoiled the view
and interfered with the natural
dune restoration process. "You
can't enjoy (the beaches) any-
more," he said. Marse hopes to
see more industry instead ofjust
relying on tourism so that young
people can grow up here and
stay, without leaving for jobs in
the big cities.
REPORTERS GOT A LOOK at
the new Walton County Jail un-
der construction at its location
on Hwy 83N. Although the roof
was not yet complete in some ar-
eas, it was possible to see one of
the cells, the visiting room and
other parts of the 582-bed facil-
ity.
When completed, the jail will
have administrative offices for
the sheriff and other senior of-
ficers, vehicle maintenance, a
medical wing and video access
between the jail and the court-
house so that judges can hold
first appearance without the
need to transport inmates down-
town.
THE NORTHWEST
FLORIDA Symphony Orches-
tra, under Lois Van Dam, cel-
ebrated its 20th year with a
plethora of show dates and spe-
cial events. Special guests in-
cluded guitar virtuoso Miroslav
Loncar, singers Donovan
Singletary and Allison Bates
and guest conductor Jerome
Shannon.
TERRY ZAN JENKINS re-
signed as Walton High School's
girls'basketball coach. With only
one winning season (2002-03)
after six years, Jenkins resigned
the coaching job, but remained
on the faculty.
AFTER DEFUNIAK CITY
MARSHALL Mike Adkinson
wrote a letter to the mayor and
city council saying that Sheriff
Ralph Johnson had made "over-
tures" suggesting the city dis-
band the police department and
allow the county to police the
city (as it does for Paxton and
Freeport), Johnson held a press
conference in which he denied
the allegation. Instead, said
Johnson, the overturese" were
nothing more than "individuals
stating their personal opinion
that the sheriff's office could
provide more efficient service to
the citizens at less cost to the
city taxpayers."
Both sides expressed displea-
sure with the other's level of ser-
vice and, cooperation, but
Johnson did say that if the city
did favor the consolidation, he
would consider it. Adkinson said
he strongly opposes. any consoli-
dation.
STATE REPRESENTATIVE
Don Brown spoke in favor of the
Legislature's new law which no
longer allows a victim to see fi-
nancial awards from the person
or company with the deepest
pockets, regardless of that
company's actual degree of re-
sponsibility. Brown said a defen-
dant should only collect from the
parties responsible, not from the
parties with the most money.
Brown said he was also
pleased at the passing of a law
that periodically ends govern-
ment programs, so that a review
can be made regularly to deter-
mine whether the program is
working efficiently and respon-
sibly. He, also said they had fi-
nally repealed the "insidious in-
tangibles tax. It is now history."
THE CITY OF PAXTON
agreed to increase city water
usage rates by .88-cents per
month. This amount is expected
to generate enough funds to
cover the cost of any loans or
budgeted expenses associated
with construction of the city's
new water system.
A CRASH ON 1-10 injured 10

sengers.
A MILTON MAN, William C.
Vallar, 22, was killed by a car
.while lying in his own bed.
Beverly Grimditch, 50, of
Navarre,. driving under the in-
fluence, lost control of her ve-
hicle on an embankment and
crashed through the roof of
Vallar's house. Grimditch was
already on parole over a
drunken, high-speed chase inci-
dent that happened in Walton
County in 2005.
WALTON COUNTY DEPU-

TIES recovered a DeFuniak
Springs city police car that had
been stolen from the officer's

a short distance away and no
arrest was made at the time.
RACHEL JONES had a great
year. Not only was the Freeport

in the top five.
THE WALTON COUNTY
Planning Department approved
two affordable housing develop-
ment projects. St.. Joe Timber-

merce park south of the Bay.

IMARC Partners want to build
a 687 unit development just east
of Chat Holley Road and U.S.
331.
JESSE GUARDADO, con-
victed of murdering DeFuniak
Springs realtor Jackie Malone
filed an appeal of his death sen-
tence. Earlier, Guardado waived
his right to trial and pled guilty
to robbery and first degree mur-
der. After Circuit Judge Kelvin
Wells sentenced him to death,
Guardado appealed the sen-
tence on the grounds that he had
inadequate counsel. The state
did not immediately file a re-
sponse to the appeal and the
case could drag on for years.
WALTON HISH SCHOOL
baseball player Matt Carter won
a scholarship to William Carey
College in Hattiesburg, Missis-

In an interview with the Her-

his decision, noting that the size

tion he requested was justified.

COMMISSIONER KEN PRIDGEN is a strong supporter of

donation to the Children's Volunteer Health Network (CVHN) and
his generosity enabled them to meet the medical, dental and men-
tal health needs of some of the uninsured children in our commu-
nity. Following his reelection in November, Susan Breeden turned
to him once more for consideration with any excess campaign con-
tributions he may have received. He agreed once again to assist.in
their efforts. "Because of individuals like Kenneth Pridgen, "Breeden
said, "CVHN will have the ability to receive, refurbish, supply and
staff a dental van in the coming months for the children in our
county." Here, CVHN president Tricia Carlisle Northcutt (L) and

A message from the Emerald Coast Association of REALTORS


t's a great time


to buy.a home.


Right now
May actually be
one of the best times
to buy a home. Consider these facts:

INTEREST RATES NEAR RECORD LOWS


Today's interest rates are comparable to 40-year lows,
offering homebuyers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.


LARGE INVENTORY WON'T LAST


There are currently eleven thousand homes and
condominiums for sale along the Emerald Coast. We have
had a record inventory of homes on the market in recent
months, offering consumers the greatest choice in decades.

PRICES OVERALL HAVE STABILIZED

Contracts for home sales in August are up 4.3 percent1
and the outlook is for home prices to increase next year.


rs.. Emerald Coast

"l.. Association of REALTORS


POSITIVE OUTLOOK


I Former Federal Reserve
Chair Alan Greenspan recently
said that housing prospects are looking up. "Most of the
negatives in housing are probably behind us. The fourth
quarter should be reasonably good, certainly better than
the third quarter."2 According to industry estimates, 2006
will be the third-best year on record for home sales.3


REAL ESTATE IS A GREAT INVESTMENT


Homeownership is a safe, secure way to build long-
term wealth. The national median price of homes bought
ten years ago has increased 88 percent.3 The number of
US households is expected to increase 15 percent during
the next decode, creating a continued high demand for
housing.4

DON'T DELAY

Now is a great time to buy or sell a home. Call your
REALTOR or go to EmeraldCoastHomesOnline.com, the

It happens every
year, yet statistics
say that only two
percent of Ameri-
cans keep them. I
am referring to New
Year's resolutions
and our inability to
hold ourselves ac-
countable.

Many say that, they will
push away from the table a
little sooner and a little less
stuffed, while others say this
will be their last pack of ciga-
rettes and will lay them
down as soon as the bell tolls
the new year.

In all honesty, experts and
researchers say that only a
very small portion, two per-
cent nationwide, actually
keep their New Year's Eve
resolutions. It is the one time
that we try to break old hab-
its, but soon fall back into the
same lifestyle patterns.
When we try to analyze the
reasons why we should break
old habits, we find several
reasons why we should keep
on in the same pattern. If we
quit smoking, then we will
gain weight, or if we start to
give our time to a charity,
then we lose that time with
our family.
Either way, we often talk
ourselves out of making a
commitment to ourselves.,
But New Year's Eve is all

THE SHOOTING OF AN

beached pygmy whale led to a

DUE TO NEGATIVE PUB-
LIC RESPONSE,the DeFuniak
Springs City Council unani-
mously denied a proposal by
Clary-Glenn funeral homes to

about the effect on their 'prop-

With all the holiday'par-
ties and sweets that we eat
during the holiday season,
we often pack on a few extra
pounds. Once Jan. 2 comes
around and the mirrors are
once again looked into, we
decide to hit the gym, the
pavement walking or the
treadmill.
Dieticians and physical
therapists report that those
promises and good inten-
tions, seem to come to an end
around Easter. Why, at that
time of year is not known,
but it is also about the same
time that taxes are due.
Most people say they have
not planned any type of
resolutions until New Year's
Eve night when they are
around other people. That is
when we all scramble to find
something that we could eas-
ily change.

For many Americans, the
battle of the bulge and the
cancer-sticks are actually an

It is just a comfort to know
there is a date that could be
considered the "goal day."
Now if neither of those two
resolutions apply to you, then
maybe there other types of.
changes that you want to,
make in your life.
Many creative citizens live
in and around the Walton
County area. They may have
always longed to be in a local
theater production, paint a
scene of the beach, attend
more cultural events, join an
organization or club, or write
that novel they have been
drafting for the past 20 years.
Not all resolutions have to
be to give up bad habits.
Sometimes our resolutions
can be for the betterment of
ourselves and our community.

have started on that novel
that they have had brewing
in their heart and mind for
years. But they have all said
'don't wait until you retire to
get your creative juices flow-
ing.' .
With the new year ap-
proaching and a chance to
start over and begin new ac-
tivities, think deep about
what you want to give up and
what you want to begin. Be
it spending more time with
your favorite charity, be it
taking a class for educational
or creative purposes, or just
changing your lifestyle hab-
its, take the new year to do
it!
If you can't .wait for the
new year and you have al-
ready begun your "change for
the better," good luck and
keep it happening all
throughout the holiday sea-
son and into next year. Take
a chance and try something
different so that you can ex-
perience a much broader out-
look on life and all its diver-
sities.
Who knows? If there was
no such thing as New Year's
resolutions and no one took
a chance or a risk on their.
ideas, what kind of world
would we live in and just how
boring would our lives be?

Have a happy and prosper-
ous 2007!!li'

STATE OF FLORIDA
DEPARTMENT OF
ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION
NOTICE OF CONSENT ORDER

The Department of Environmen-
tal Protection gives notice of agency
action of entering into a Consent Or-
der with Sandestin Resort & Club, Inc.,
pursuant to Section 120.57(4), Florida
Statutes. The Consent Order ad-
dresses the operation of a recycle was
system with an expired Department
permit at 9300 Highway 98 West, In
Walton County, Florida, at approxi-
mate Latitude 30 22' 58" North, Lon-
gitude 86 18' 55" West. The Con-
sent order is available for public in-
spection during normal business
hours, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Mon-
day through Friday, except legal holi-
days, at the Department of Environ-
mental Protection, 160 Governmen-
tal Center, Pensacola, Florida 32502-
5794.
Persons whose substantial inter-
ests are affected by this Consent Or-
der have a right to petition for an ad-
ministrative hearing on the Consent
Order. The Petition must contain the
information set forth below and must
be filed (received) in the Department's
Office of General Counsel, 3900 Com-
monwealth Boulevard, MS# 35, Tal-
lahassee, Florida 32399-3000, within
21 days of receipt of this notice. A
copy of the Petition must also be
mailed at the time of filing to the Dis-
trict Office named above at the ad-
dress indicated. Failure to file a peti-
tion with the 21 days constitutes a
waiver of any right such person has
to an administrative hearing pursuant
to Sections 120.569 and 120.57,
Florida Statutes.
The petition shall contain the fol-
lowing information: (a) The name, ad-
dress, and telephone number of each
petitioner; the Department's identifica-
tion number for the Consent Order and
the county in which the subject mat-
ter or activity is located; (b) A state-
ment of how and when each petitioner
received notice of the Consent Order;
(c) A statement of how each
petitioner's substantial interests are
affected by the Consent Order; (d) A
statement of the material facts dis-
puted by petitioner, if any: (e) A state-
ment of facts which petitioner con-
tends warrant reversal or modification
of the Consent Order; (f) A statement
of which rules or statutes petitioner
contends require reversal or modifi-
cation of the Consent. Order; (g) A
statement of the relief sought by peti-
tioner, stating precisely the action pe-
titioner wants the Department to take
with respect to the Consent Order.
If a petition is filed, the adminis-
trative hearing process is designed to
formulate agency action. Accordingly,
the Department's final action may be
different from the position taken by it
in this Notice. Persons whose sub-
stantial interests will be affected by
any decision of the Department with
regard to the subject Consent Order
have the right to petition to become a
party to the proceeding. The petition
must conform to the requirements
specified above and be filed (received)
within 21 days of receipt of this notice
in the Office of General Counsel at the
above address of the Department.
Failure to petition within the allowed
time frame constitutes a waiver of any
right such person has to request a
hearing under Sections 120.569 and
120.57, Florida Statutes, and to par-
ticipate as a party to this proceeding;
Any subsequent intervention will only
be at the approval of the presiding of-
ficer upon motion filed pursuant to
Rule 28-106,205, Florida Administra-
tive Code.
A person whose substantial inter-
ests are affected by the Consent Or-
der may file a timely petition for an ad-
ministrative hearing under Sections
120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes,
or may choose to pursue mediation
as an alternative remedy under Sec-
tion 120.573, Florida Statutes, before
the deadline for filing a petition.
Choosing mediation will not adversely
affect the right to a hearing if media-
tion does not result in a settlement.
The procedures for pursuing media-
tion are set forth below.
Mediation may only take place if
the Department and all the parties to
the proceeding agree that mediation
is appropriate. A person may pursue


mediation by reaching a mediation
agreement with all parties to the pro-
ceeding (which include the Respon-
dent, the Department, and any per-
son who has filed a timely and suffi-
cient petition for a hearing) and by
showing how the substantial interests
of each mediating party are affected
by the Consent Order. The agreement
must be filed in (received by) the Of-
fice of General Counsel of the De-
partment at 3900 Commonwealth
Boulevard, MS #35, Tallahassee,
Florida 32399-3000, within 10 days
after the deadline as set forth above
for the filing of a petition.
The agreement to mediate must
include the following:
(a)The names, addresses, and
telephone numbers of any persons
who may attend the mediation;
(b)The name, address and tele-
phone number of the mediator se-
lected by the parties, or a provision


for selecting a mediator within a speci-
fied time;
(c)The agreed allocation of the
costs and fees associated with the
mediation;
(d)The agreement of the parties
on the confidentiality of discussions
and documents introduced during me-
diation;
(e)The date, time and place of the
first mediation session, or a deadline
for holding the first session, if no me-
diator has yet been chosen;
(f)The name of each party's rep-
resentative who shall have authority
to settle or recommend settlement;
and
(g)Either an explanation of how
the substantial interests of each me-
diating party will be affected by the
action or proposed action addressed
in this notice of intent or a statement
clearly identifying the petition for hear-
ing that each party has already filed,
and incorporating it by reference.
(h)The signatures of all parties or
their authorized representatives.
As provided in Section 120.573,
Florida Statutes, the timely agreement
of all parties to mediate will toll the time
limitations imposed by Sections
120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes,
for requesting and holding an admin-
istrative hearing. Unless otherwise
agreed by the parties, the mediation
must be concluded within sixty days
of the execution of the agreement. If
mediation results in settlement of the
administrative dispute, the Depart-
ment must enter a final order incorpo-
rating the agreement of the parties.
Persons whose substantial interests
will be affected by such a modified fi-
nal decision of the Department have
a right to petition for a hearing only in
accordance with the requirements for
such petitions set forth above, and
must therefore file their petitions within
21 days of receipt of this notice. If
mediation terminates without settle-
ment of the dispute, the Department
shall notify all parties in writing that
the administrative hearing processes
under Sections 120.569 and 120.57,
Florida Statutes, remain available for
disposition of the dispute, and the
notice will specify the deadlines that
then will apply for challenging the
agency action and electing remedies
under those two statutes.
