Local store clerks

By ALICIA LEONARD
"It's a huge industry and
we are doing this campaign
statewide to raise aware-
ness," said Lt. Tony Corn-


man of Florida's Division
of Alcoholic Beverages and
Tobacco (ABT).
Cornman was speaking
about the alarming rise in

the marketing and selling
of energy drinks that con-

its agents on the streets this
weekend to check compli-
ance rates of stores selling
the drinks across Florida.
The Herald rode along
with the ABT sting and saw
some surprising results.
The first thing that
strikes someone looking at
the drinks is they are al-
most indistinguishable from
energy drinks that do not

many experts across the na-

Freeport Council


debates placement


of RV resort


By BENJAMIN GRAFTON
In City Hall on April 24,
the Freeport City. Council
debated whether or not a re-
quest made by Cliff Knauer
of Ramsey Creek RV Resort
to locate the development on
a 38-acre parcel, zoned com-
mercial, at the intersection
of U.S. 331 and LaGrange
Road could be approved.
Knauer described the pro-
posed development as a "re-
sort" where density would
be limited seven lots per
acre. The lots would be sold
to "Baby-boomer" owners of
top-of-the line RVs rather
than the usual approach
of 25 lots per acre which
would be rented to RV own-
ers. Council members were
generally receptive to the
concept, but were concerned
that placing the RV resort
in a location where adjacent
properties might be a fast
food restaurant or a welding
shop would not be appropri-
ate. Knauer said that this
possibility was acceptable.


Hammock Bay developer
Jay Odom told the Council
he had done research on RV
resorts and believed them
to be "high-end" businesses.
They attract owners of big
RVs who are looking for a
good lot.
Both Odom and Mark
Martin of Walton County
Planning Staff said they
believed the Council could
change the uses allowed in
the commercial zoning cat-
egory and provide for the
RV resort. On a motion, the
Council elected to table the
discussion and to research
the issues further. They said
they would be ready to pur-
sue the matter at the next
Council meeting.
In other business, City
Planner Latilda Henninger
presented the final plat for
Phase I of the Verandas at
Freeport development. All
requirements have been
satisfied with the exception
of turn lane designs which
are being reviewed by the


Department of Transporta-
tion (DOT). The developer
proposes the placement of
a drain pipe under the turn
lane to move storm water on
through the turn lane area.
The Council accepted the
plat.
City Attorney Clayton
Adkinson presented the sec-
ond reading of an ordinance
to accept the annexation of
three parcels on West Bay
Loop road into the City. The
reading was approved.
Mayor Mickey Marse
said that there was no suit-
able vehicle to transport
the prisoner work crew to
be furnished by the Depart-
ment of Corrections to Free-
port. He said this was an
urgent matter because of
the demand for production
from this crew. He asked
the Council to give him au-
thority to purchase a suit-
able van for $21,000 to solve
this problem. The Council

DFS Council approves leases and purchases


By ALICIA LEONARD
The DeFuniak Springs
City Council approved a bid
to purchase four new trucks
for their public works de-
partment. The winning bid

KEVIN WILKERSON received kudos from the Council for all the work CHELCO does on
behalf of the community. He received unanimous approval for a 5K run/walk in Septem-

The Council approved 5-0

Board of Trustees of Internal

A unanimous approval
was given by the Council
for a budget amendment of
$300,000. The amendment
came to light because of a
request from the Depart-
ment of Community Affairs

development block grant
(CDGB) needed to be show
as a budgeted item.
Kevin Wilkerson, repre-
senting CHELCO, requested
a waver of fees and approval
for a special events permit

sociation. The event, sched-
uled for September 13, 2008,

city is presently working
with another land owner to
purchase an additional four-
acre parcel on the south end
of the runway to extend the
runway to 5,000 feet, as.this
will allow more air traffic
and commerce.

SWFD donates

surplus ambulance

to DFS police


THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, MAY 1,2008
..... - l Li


In a continuing effort of
the South Walton Fire Dis-
trict (SWFD) to build part-
nerships and assist area
public safety agencies, the
SWFD donated a surplus
ambulance to the Office of
the City Marshal DeFuniak
Springs Police (DFSPD).
DFSPD requested the
donation of the ambulance
for a community project.
The DFSPD was faced with
many challenges in provid-
ing service to their commu-
nity. With limited resources
and an increase in demands
for service, they looked for
creative ways to meet their
needs.
The surplus ambulance
will be used as a Community
Service Unit / Mobile Com-
mand Post and will prove


an asset for the department
and the citizens of Defuniak
Springs. The surplus am-
bulance was originally do-
nated by Walton County to
the SWFD when they began
providing advance life sup-
port (ALS) transport service
to the citizens and visitors
of south Walton. "We feel it
is only fitting that we could
extend the same opportu-
nity to the Office of the City
Marshal Defuniak Springs
in their effort to meet the
needs of their community,"
said SWFD Fire Chief, Rick
Talbert.

BUSES WERE AIRED UP and back to work later in the day thanks to quick thinking and community involvement.


Vandals take air out of morning bus ride


By ALICIA LEONARD
When school bus driv-
ers arrived the morning of
April 28, they quickly found
out that over the weekend
someone had let the air out
of their plans.
Mac Work, director of
transportation for Walton
County schools, said Mon-
day, "We came in at six this
morning to find every front
tire on our fleet was flat.
Someone let the air out of
every front tire on every
bus."
Work said that with lots


,of help, the buses rolled out
only an hour late. "I can tell
you if we ever have a na-
tional disaster DeFuniak
Springs is where I want to
live. We had two trucks from
CHELCO and from Nation-
al Tire Brokers that showed
up with air pumps and they
got us on the road again.
People really came out and
supported us to keep things
on schedule. We are really
grateful for their help and
it's pitching in at times like
this that make us remember
what a great community we
live in."


Work also noted that they
had not found any signs of a
break in at that time. "We'll
look once we get finished get-
ting all our buses checked,
but we haven't seen any-
thing that really stood out
this morning as to how they
got in," said Work.
Defuniak Spring City
Marshall Mike Adkinson
said, "We believe they got in
.through a portion of fencing.
We are actively investigat-
ing, but we are also meeting
with school administration
to see how we can work to-
gether and be more proac-


tive in preventing anything
like this or recent events
from happening again."
On April 29, DFSPD Lt.
Bill Chapman released news
that three suspects had been
arrested. No names were
released, but all three are
identified as sophomores,
one age 15 and the other
two age 16. Chapman's
statement said that the ju-
veniles, all WHS students,
admitted what they had
done and have been booked
with criminal trespass and
criminal mischief.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, MAY 1,2008


Wrecker ordinance to



be considered


By DOTTY NIST
Currently in Walton
County there is no limit on
the rates that wrecker com-
panies can charge for tow-
ing vehicles. What may be
of even more concern is that
towing often takes place
without the consent of the
vehicle owner - or in acci-
dent situations where vehi-
cle owners are not in a good
position to bargain about a
price for towing.
John and Melissa Hinson,
owners of Hinson's Wreck-
er Service in DeFuniak
Springs, came before the
Walton County Board of
County Commissioners
(BCC) on April 22 to raise
concerns about the rates be-
ing charged by some wreck-
er companies. They stated
that some companies have


On April 22, the Wal-
ton County Sheriffs Office
(WCSO) assisted the Lock-
hart Police Department and
the Covington County Sher-
iff's Office in Alabama with
a manhunt in the Lockhart,
AL. area at around 6 p.m.
A male subject reportedly
went into the Penny Mart
Store armed with a hand-


charged as much as $600 for
towing in the local area.
:'We are requesting for
fair and equitable rates to
be adopted," Melissa Hinson
told the commissioners.
The Hinsons asked the
commissioners to consider
adopting an ordinance simi-
lar to nearby Destin's regu-
lating wrecking and towing
services, including a cap
on rates for towing when it
takes place without the con-
sent of the vehicle owner.
The Destin ordinance
sets a base rate of $125 for
"non-consensual" towing of
vehicles and also regulates
other aspects of towing and
wrecker operations.
Florida law allows local
governments to limit tow-
ing rates in instances where
there is no consent by an
owner to have his vehicle


gun and demanded that the
store clerk put the money in
a gym bag. The subject then
fled on foot. He was found
one hour and 35 minutes
later, hiding in an old grain
silo.
The arrested is 17 year-
old Robert Cadenhead from
the Paxton area. He also


towed. As noted in Florida
Statutes 125.0103, these
instances may include ac-
cidents in which a driver is
incapacitated.
W.C. Henry, Walton
county legal counsel, told
the commissioners that they
are not required by law to
adopt a wrecker ordinance,
but that he believes it would
be "a good idea" to do so.
Henry agreed that people
"do get ripped off' by some
wrecker companies. He said
he wrote an ordinance for
Manatee County regulating
wrecker and towing servic-
es.
"It's complicated, but it's
doable," Henry said.
He added that if a city
adopts its own wrecker
and towing ordinance, the
county ordinance would not
apply within those city lim-


cooperated with WCSO in-
vestigators and admitted to
robbing the Tom Thumb on
U.S. 331 in Paxton on April
12. Warrants have been
sent to the State Attorney's
Office in Walton County for
one count of armed robbery
and one count of theft.
The investigation is con-
tinuing.


"Cops on Top" set for June 7 climb up Lakewood


On Saturday, June 7,
2008 Cops on Top will be
having its annual Summit
for Heroes Memorial Climb
in honor of fallen officers
killed in the line of duty. The
goal is to get as many law
enforcement professionals
reaching their state's high
point on the same day.
Lakewood, located in
Walton County, is the high-
est point in Florida. The
17-acre park is 25 miles
north of DeFuniak Springs
on U.S. 331 North, and is
345 feet above sea level. A
granite monument marks
E Mm


the top of the hill, and is
* surrounded by rolling farm-
lands and timberlands. The
county park has public re-
strooms, two picnic tables,
eight benches, and a pavil-
ion for an afternoon picnic.
This year's event will be
held on Saturday, June 7 at


approximately 10 a.m. Par.
ticipants should wear com-
fortable clothing and shoes,
because although the climb
is not very challenging, the
weather will be warm and
humid. Refreshments will
be served by Cxime Stop-
pers of Walton County, Inc.

its. He also called the Des-
tin ordinance "convoluted"
and recommended a more
streamlined version for Wal-
ton County.
Walton County Adminis-
trator Ronnie Bell said he
had been contacted by an-
other local wrecker company
owner who said he opposes
any county ordinance regu-
lating wrecker and towing
services because the state is
currently considering simi-
lar legislation.
A public hearing would
be required for adoption of a
county ordinance, but before
voting on whether to set one,
the commissioners directed
Henry to research what
type of ordinance would be
needed and bring back that
information at a future ses-
sion.


JOHN AND MELISSA Hinson of Hinson's Wrecker Ser-
vice were present at the April 22 Walton County Board of
County Commissioners' meeting to request the approval of
an ordinance setting rates for vehicles that are towed with-
out the consent of their owners.

Editor's comment


There's something funny
about this election
By RON KELLEY
When it comes to politics these days, you either have to
laugh or cry. I've shed enough tears lately. It's time we took
a moment to lighten up a bit.
Election 2008 is the strangest, oddest presidential race
I have ever witnessed - and I have seen some odd ones. Al-
though we're out of fuel, we're out of corn and we're out of
money, we still have plenty to laugh about.
"Even though she won yesterday, Hillary Clinton's cam-
paign is now $10 million in debt. Yeah, $10 million in debt,
and, ironically, her big issue: 'I can handle the economy."'
--Jay Leno.
"The primary race is dragging on and on and on. But the
Democrats are trying to put a good face on it. They're con-
fident, they say now, absolutely they will have a nominee
for president by McCain's second year in office. So there.
They're ready to go." --David Letterman.
"Everyone is so concerned now where all of the candi-
dates are born. McCain was born on a military base in Pan-
ama. Hillary was born outside Chicago, and if you believe
the media, Barack Obama was born in a manger." --Jay
Leno.
"President Bush made a special taped appearance on
the game show 'Deal or No Deal.' Afterwards, Bush said, 'I
like this show, because randomly pointing at boxes is how
I make decisions, too."' --Conan O'Brien.
"Hillary's gonna be our girl...I would campaign for her if
McCain is the nominee." --Ann Coulter.
"And Barack Obama is suffering from a bad headache
today. His former pastor, Reverend Wright, is back out
there. Reverend Wright gave an interview earlier tonight
on PBS with Bill Moyers, and he said he's gotten over a mil-
lion emails and phone calls telling him to keep on speaking
out, and every one of them came from Hillary Clinton. It
was amazing." --Jay Leno.
"Bush was on 'Deal or No Deal.' Apparently he didn't feel
he was ready for 'Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader?'"
--David Letterman.
"You see Barack Obama at that rally surrounded by all
those Kennedys? Man, I couldn't tell if he was running for
president or bartender." --Jay Leno.
"No one talks about John McCain anymore because
he won his side of the thing, and now he's just wander-
ing around. He's just wandering around, nobody's talking
about him. So he's trying to do things to get press, this
week John McCain is on a tour of what he calls 'Forgotten
Places in America.' Forgotten places, yeah. Which, at his
age, means just about everywhere." --Conan O'Brien
"President Bush announced the rebate checks for at
least $600. ... I'm going to use my check to buy enough gas
to drive to the bank and cash it. And then maybe back."
--Jimmy Kimmel.
Tomorrow I go to Washington D.C. to perform at the
White House Correspondents Dinner. It's thrown by the
press corps for the president and his staff. Everyone who
works for the president will be there. Dick Cheney will be
there; Condoleezza Rice will be there; Fox News will be
there." --Craig Ferguson
Political experts say that Barack Obama is attracting
mostly younger voters, while Hillary. Clinton is attracting
much older voters. They may be right, because tod4y John
McCain said he's voting for Hillary." --Conan O'Brien
You know that since George Bush has become president,
gas has basically tripled in price. Now, Bush is an oil man.
I'm not a conspiracy theorist, I'm just saying that if we had
elected Colonel Sanders president, and the price of chicken
had tripled, I'd be a little suspicious." --Bill Maher
"Hillary Clinton is talking tough. Talking tough. She
said if Israel is ever attacked by Iran, she would obliterate
Iran. Although, she does admire the Iranians for stoning
adulterers." --Jay Leno.
"It's been reported that President Bush was so impressed
with Pope Benedict's recent visit, that after he leaves of-
fice, Bush may convert to Catholicism. Bush said, 'I'd con-
vert right now, but Dick Cheney freaks out if you get near
him with a cross'" --Conan O'Brien.
Or, as the great Will Rogers said, "Everything is chang-
ing. People are taking their comedians seriously and the
politicians as a joke."
I know when I can't top a line.

*LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


Editor:
I just wanted to take a final opportunity to thank my
wonderful county for an amazing year! I have had the
time of my life this year and I cannot believe it is already
over! For over 12 months, you have been my family and
have supported me and loved me every step of the way.
Thank you for every kind word, for every smile, for every
prayer, and for every penny of financial support you have
given me this year.
My year would have not been possible without the as-
sistance of dozens of people. I hope I don't leave anyone
out, but if I do, please forgive me for being forgetful. Kathy
McCormick of Jemco, I could not have done it without you.
Ms. Paula and Mr. Joel of Clary Glenn Funeral Home,
thank you for everything. Doc, Bobby and Ashley Garcia,
thank you for always believing in me. Ms. Sherri Bell, I
am so glad you have been my second mom since birth.
I want to give a final thank you to my sponsors: Cher-
yl Zorn of Samson Steel Truss and Supply, Donnie and
Sharon Richardson of Richardson Farms, Sally Merri-
field, Christa Merrifield and Terry Pilcher of Prudential,
Merrifield and Pilcher Realty, Vanessa and Dan Bump of
Coaches Corner, Cathy Mosley of Little Cat Productions,
Tim Ard of the Ard Gallery, 'Candy Nowling of Quality
Builders, Kathy Morrow of Chelco, Marion Smith of Sim-
ply Good Barbecue, Lisa Santos of Afterglow, Pam Keeble
and Tasha Harger of Formally Yours , the Family Fitness
Gym, Hammock Bay, the Walton County Teacher's Fed-
eral Credit Union, Owl's Head , Chajt~uqu.a Vineyards,
Nick's Seafood Restaurant, Russ Barley of the Emerald
Coast Flowers and Gifts Shop, Sacred Heart Hospital on
the Emerald Coast, The Beaches of South Walton, and
Auto Zone.
I also want to thank the local businesses for my commu-
nity gift basket: McLean's Florist, Mom and Dad's Italian
Restaurant, Diane and Don Brown of Mia Bella Candles,
Domino's Pizza, La Rumba's Mexican Restaurant, Bank
of America, Beef 0' Brady's, Bank Trust, The Sweet Life,
CHELCO, and'Dessert's by Ashleigh.
My Miss Walton County experience was awesome
because I had the following people by my side: the fam-
ily God gave me, David Pert and the Walton High Drama
Club, my Walton County court-Mary Beth Bishop, Sa-
vannah Nowling, Megan Matthews, Kylie Smith, Angel
Garland and their wonderful families, my left arm-Devin
Jones and her mom Neica, the 2007 DFS queens -Nyssa
Williams, Paige Howell, Jamison Minniefield, Krislynn Mc
Laney (my walking partner),Teia Fields and their fami-
lies, Mrs. Ealum and the WHS Anchor Club, my Braves
Varsity Cheerleading Squad, the Minniefield family,
Ashlie Wood and Tori Manning, Tonya and Emilee An-
derson, the Russell Casey family, Gina and Carla Snyder,
Jeannette, James, Tiffany, and Ashley Nance, Rhonda
Skipper, Sammy and James Watson, Capri and Creighton
Zodrow and sons, Sonny Yates, Tara and.Debbie Phillips,
the rest of my gang--- KP, Michelle, Megan, Kayla and
their moms, Wayne, Connie, and Rachael Jones, Ronnie
Bell and the Walton Board of County Commissioners,
Jana and Alexa Wilkinson, Brooke Windham, and my So-
Wal Buddies.
I have much gratitude for Carlene Anderson and the
Walton School District, the official sponsors of the Miss
Walton County pageant. I hope I have met their challenge
of being an ambassador for our entire, diverse county.
Because of the support of local media, Walton County
truly stands behind its youth ambassadors. The Seaside
Neighborhood School welcomed me on their summer radio
program. Art and Marti Dees and the WZEP staff are the
'neighborliest' people on the planet.
It has been a pleasure to get to know and fall deeper in
love with the people of Walton County this year. I feel the
people of my county have also become acquainted with me
because of. the gracious support of Ron Kelley and Gary
Woodham of the De Funiak Herald Breeze.
Although it is heart-breaking to pass on my title and
crown, it is comforting to know they will be cherished by a
beautiful, intelligent, articulate young lady named Madi-
son Lewis. As my last request, Walton County, please em-
brace Madison with your love and support, the way you
have embraced me these last 12 months.
For one final time,
I am your Miss Walton County 2007,
Sassy (Rhapsody) Bogart

Editor:
For years, the leaders of Walton County have tried to
get the FDOT to widen U.S. 331 and the answer has been
"there is no money for right of way."
I was shocked to see that someone from Walton County
sought a grant to plant cypress trees on the median in south
Walton County. With a tight budget in Talahasee, some-
one in the FDOT approved a grant for $600,000 dollars to
be wasted on these trees. I have written to Governor Crist
and Sen. Don Gaetz to see if this waste of our funds can be
stopped.


Bob Plate,
New Harmony


Editor:
I am at my wits' end and maybe one of you could solve it
for me. We have been down here in a suburb of D.F.S. Soon
after our setting up a homestead - some drunk or druggy
came down the hill and did not negotiate the bend in the
road and before he know what happened, he climbed a
shallow embankment and slammed into a young oak tree,
de-barking one side at the same time, pulling the, roots up
and out of the ground - one tree dead. Some months after,
the same curve and one complete mail box assembly, dead.
Next came mail box #2 and then #3. Our mail lady was nice
to us and told us to put our mail box closer to the house on a
circle driveway we had created. This we did but realized we
had no house number up close to the road. So the wife sal-
vaged some of the last post that went down, painted it and
hung our house numbers on the post and planted plants
around the post. Yesterday we went to church, leaving the
house at 10:15, after church we drove out to Chipley. Com-
ing back home at 5:30 and guess what, no house address or
flowers, someone did this post and planter a dirty deed.
In all our years out here, they have taken down one oak
tree, three mail boxes and now our address post.
Many the time, while sitting out on our porch (we have
lost count) some "jerk" has come flying down and back up
the hill on a 4-wheeler and many is the time I would say a
little prayer to the good Lord to skin this guy's arms and
legs, not my luck. And even at times this same fool would
carry two or three others on the 4-wheeler, just as fast as
they could. The tree, mailboxes, and address post,;I'm sure
were taken down by a car or truck all at night and yester-
day, by day light.
Other than making, a steel spike and facing it up hill, I
don't know what to do next. I can only wish their cars or
trucks an expensive harm.
Respectfully,
Ed Bjorkman
DeFuniak Springs

Editor:
As I look around the community of DeFuniak Springs, I
see more of our citizens changing their lifestyles to become
energy efficient in their homes and in their workplace. An
increasing number of people are driving environmentally
friendly cars and sometimes parking the car and taking the
bike. But there are some of our neighbors who are intent
on keeping their $50,000 pick-up trucks to use as to use as taxis to
deliver their children to and from school. Each morning at
7:30, the line of giant SUVs and trucks stretches from the
drop-off point for Walton Middle School on Crescent, all
the way back to Bruce. It's staggering to think how much
gasoline is wasted sitting in line in a Ford Excursion or
Toyota Tundra getting 12 miles to the gallon, just to take
little Johnny to school, especially when some of the school
buses are less than half full. Granted, this will be a self-
resolving situation given the skyrocketing cost of fuel.
Of course, these well-meaning parents must take a
backseat to the biggest gluttons of fossil fuel in our com-
munity; the employees of the city of DeFuniak Springs
and Walton County. Each morning at McDonald's on 331
South, the evidence presents itself. I know it's a cliche' to
joke about policemen hanging around the McDonald's, but
it ceases to be funny when half of our police force arrive in
unison all driving a separate patrol car. Hey, can't these
guys and girls at least carpool? If this is not upsetting
enough, just glance out the drive-thru and see the line of
county vehicles lined up for their Egg McMuffins. Why are
these county employees allowed to use these government
cars for their private use? And if this practice is allowed
to continue, how about buying more fuel-saving cars and
trucks?
Walton County is no longer the sleepy little community
of bygone years. As more and more younger people and,
yes, our friends from the north move into the area, the
collective mindset becomes more progressive. We can keep
the things about our town which make it special and strip
away the backward attitudes of business as usual. We are
never going to be Dade County, but we could put more em-
phasis and money toward bike paths and pedestrian walk-
ways. I noticed that the resurfacing of Bruce Avenue did'
not include a sidewalk on either side leading to 331 South.
This is one of the most frequently-used roads for people
who must use a bike or their feet to get to the shopping
areas around Wal-Mart. If the powers that be in the city
and the county need some convincing, just let them try to
get from the Courthouse to Wal-Mart without a car. One
bicycle trip down 331 at four o'clock in the afternoon can
change your mind and maybe your life.

Muscogee Nation sponsors Musical Echoes


By JEFFREY POWELL
The Muscogee Nation
of Florida held its Musical
Echoes Native American
Flute, Art and Cultural Fes-
tival on April 25 through 27.
The annual event was held
at Fort Walton Beach Land-
ing and was attended by
hundreds of spectators. The
location of the festival is on
land known to have been
used by Native Americans
for thousands of years prior
to the arrival of Europeans.
The landing is just south of
the Indian Temple Mound
Museum.
"This is one of the best


events of the year," said
Muscogee Nation of Florida
Chairwomen Ann Tucker.
"It is a family-oriented
event, and I get to see all of
my friends."
Entertainers from across
the country came to the
event to share their love of
the native wood flute, dem-
onstrate' Native American
dance and enjoy Indian
foods. Returning artists in-
cluded Mary Youngblood,
Arvel Bird, Autumn's Child,
Jeff Ball, Coyote Oldman,
Billy Whitefox, Michael
Searching Bear and Jan Se-
iden. Nation of Change, Ed


WindDancer and Raymond
Redfeather showcased their
Native American dances.
Attendees were treated- to
many Native American dish-
es including buffalo burgers
and venison stew.
Each year Tucker paints
a picture to be auctioned for
the benefit of the festival.
This year's painting was of
returning artist Arvel Bird.
"We appreciate all of our
sponsors and want to thank
the Fort Walton Beach
Chamber of Commerce for
partnering with us this
year," said Tucker. " We
also would like to recognize


the efforts of the young vol-
unteers from the key clubs."
The Muscogee Nation of
Florida is headquartered in
Bruce and has a gift shop
and genealogical records.
They can be reached by call-
ing 835-2078.

Walton schools among 11 in the state designated


as academically high-performing school districts


"We are proud to an-
nounce that we have been
designated as one of only,
11 schools in the state as
an Academically High-Per-
forming School District,"
said Walton County School
District Superintendent
Carlene Anderson.
Last week, the Florida
Department of Education
designated the 11 school dis-
tricts at the State Board of
Education meeting as one of
the consent items listed on
the agenda. Walton received
the honor along with the fol-
lowing school districts: Bre-
vard, Calhoun, Charlotte,


Gilchrist, Martin, St. Jones,
Sarasota, Seminole, and
Wakulla.
Florida Statutes, Sec-
tion 1003.621, requires that
"each school district that
satisfies the eligibility crite-
ria in this subsection shall
be designated by the State
Board of Education as an ac-
ademically high-performing
school district." The section
is stated as follows:
. "A school district is in-
cluded if in the most recent
year for which school grades
are available, it meets the
two academic criteria re-
quired by s. 1003.621, F.S.:
"Beginning with the


2004-2005 school year,
earns a grade of A under s.
1008.34(7), F.S., for 2 con-
secutive years; and Has no
district-operated school that
earns a grade of F under s.
1008.34, F.S
"For each of those dis-
tricts, the district meets the
additional requirements of
academically high perform-
ing school districts:
"Class size compliance -
This column records wheth-
er the district complies with
all class size requirements
in s. 1, Art. IX of the State
Constitution and s. 1003.03,
F.S., in the most recent year
for which class size is calcu-


lated.
"Audit compliance - The
district has no material
weaknesses or instances
of material noncompliance
noted in the annual finan-
cial audit conducted pursu-
ant to s. 218.39, F.S."


"We are working together
as a team to continue striv-
ing for academic success in
all schools and for allstu-
dents in our schools," said
Anderson. "This designa-
tion confirms we are moving
in the right, direction. I'm


proud of our administra-
tors, teachers, support and
district personnel that work
together everyday to ensure
success for our children.
Walton County School Dis-
trict is a great place to be."

and Senate, clears the way
for 500,000 concealed weap-
on permit-holders to keep
guns locked in their cars at
work.
Business owners retali-
ated by filing federal law-
suit on April 22 to have
the law declared unconsti-
tutional. The Florida
Retail Foundation Inc. as
well as the Florida Cham-
ber of Commerce Inc. filed
suit against the Florida At-
torney General in the U.S.
District Court of the North
District of Florida. The suit
alleges that that the law is
unconstitutional.
Mark Wilson, president
of the Florida Chamber
made the following public
statement about the law
and the suit filed on their
behalf, "This law is unnec-
essary and a violation of the
private property rights pro-
vided by the Constitution.
We are taking this action to
restore what 80 percent of
Florida voters believe to be
true -- that a business own-
er should be able. to decide
if employees, .qa4 or ppqot
brings guns on their prop-
erty."


"Doing that would be slapping the Legislature
in the face. We know they think they're better
than their customers and employees. Now they
think they're better than the Florida Legislature
and the governor, as well. Apparently, their ar-
rogance knows no bounds." - Marion Hammer,
lobbyist for the National Rifle Association, in a
response regarding the suit filed by the Florida
Chamber of Commerce against the Legislature.
* - _ - - - _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ ^ _


Marion Hammer, lob-
byist for the National Rifle
Association (NRA), quickly
shot back a response regard-
ing the suit and told news
outlets, "Doing that would
be slapping the Legislature
in the face. We know. they
think they're better than
their customers and employ-
ees. Now they think they're
better than the Florida Leg-
islature and the governor, as
well. Apparently, their ar-
rogance knows no bounds."
The bills passing marked an
end to the three-year push
by the NRA for passage.
In order to apply for a
crncealed weapons permit
inTlorida one must undergo
a class teaching ammuni-


tions, firearms safety, laws
concerning firearms, live
fire training, range profi-
ciency and a final exit exam
by a licensed instructor.
Sgt. Andy Casavant from
the Walton County Sheriffs
Office (WCSO) said the new
law won't have that much
impact on employers or em-
ployees. "The laws in Florida
already let someone carry a
firearm in their car as long
as it's 'encased' and those
with concealed weapons per-
mits are already allowed to
carry without anyone know-
ing to allowed areas. So this
law could help employees
not. have to facegtmribution
from an employer]'ut it's not
going to change that much."

corporate responsibility. En-
ergy drinks are so popular
with teens. Clearly they've
got to know that the market
they are tying in with is an
underage market."
Cornman agrees, "They
show the alcohol content
on the front, but other than
that they look very similar."
Out of 29 stores surveyed
in Walton County, seven
stores were caught selling
the drinks to underaged
patrons and three of those
store clerks were caught in
DeFuniak Springs in less
than two hours.
Two of the clerks sim-
ply failed to request proper
identification, but the last
clerk was notified by scan-


approved the request.
Due to extenuating cir-
cumstances, the Council
approved a six-month ex-
tension to the Regatta Point
Ventures development or-
der.
Leigh Morrison, Man-
ager of the Life Enrichment
Senior Center of Walton
County, a Tri-County Coun-
cil project, made a short
presentation about avail-
able facilities for seniors in
DeFuniak Springs. The fa-
cility is located in an 8,000
square-foot building at 312
College Avenue. Activities
will include a computer lab,
education programs and so-
cial benefits. Residents 50
years old or older are wel-
come to the facility.
Marse advised the Coun-
cil that a 5.5 acre parcel west
of City Hall was for sale and


ner that a birth date must
be imputed to complete the
sale. Instead of asking for
identification the clerk over-
rode the warning and put
his own birth date in to com-
plete the sale.
Selling to underage buy-
ers results in a second de-
gree misdemeanor for the
first offense and can carry a
$500 fine, as well as 60 days
in jail. Many clerks also lose
their jobs. If caught three
times in an 84-day period,
the store owners will be
fined $1,000 and their li-
cense to sell alcoholic bever-
ages can be pulled for seven
days. The drinks also show
a lower compliance rate,
perhaps due to their pack-


asked them whether of not
they wished to consider pur-
chasing the property.
Fire Chief Ben Greens-
lat displayed the City Logo
that will appear on Fire
Department uniforms and
equipment and then made
a request for permission
to purchase a new brush
fire rapid response truck
equipped with a 500 gallon
water tank and a 500 gal/
min. pump. This smaller,
more efficient truck, which
would cost approximately
$85,500 to build and deliver,
would be used instead of the
big trucks to answer calls to
suppress brush and accident
fires. The big trucks would
be reserved for house and
building fires. The Council
approved the request.
Councilman Earl King
asked the Council for two


aging.
Cornman said, "We usu-
ally have a 90-percent com-
pliance rate, meaning only
10 percent of stores sur-
veyed will sell to minors.
With these drinks, we, saw a
24-percent non-compliance
rate. Thats more than dou-
ble the standard."
As long as the drinks
cause non-compliance by
store owners and clerks, the
ABT will continue to "raise
awareness," as Cornman
said, "We will be back and
we will continue to keep try-
ing to keep this out of the
hands of minors. Alcohol
is the most abused drug on
the market and these being
packaged to look so similar
to drinks teens can have is
not making our job any eas-
ier, but we will keep on top
of it."


things dealing with the new
park in Hammock Bay. He
asked the Council to adopt a
name for the park and to set
the operating hours for the
facility. After a short discus-
sion the Council opted to
name the park the "Freeport
Regional Sports Complex."
Because of the intense
maintenance requirements
of the facility the Council will
consider retaining Dogwood
Services to manage mainte-
nance services. They also in-
tend to use the Department
of Corrections crew to carry
out some groundskeeping
work. After discussion they
set park hours at 10 a.m. to
10 p.m. Monday - Friday,
and from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.
on weekends. The park will
be closed for maintenance
until 10 a.m. on week-days.
A motion to temporarily hire
Dogwood Services to handle
maintenance for the next
sixty days was approved by
the Council.

EX-deputies file suit



against Johnson


By ALICIA LEONARD

A federal discrimina-
tion lawsuit was filed April
22 against Walton County
Sheriff Ralph Johnson in
the U.S. District Court in
Pensacola by an attorney
representing the two former
deputies.
Plaintiffs Kristen In-
finger and Melissa Vause
are seeking $75,000 plus
attorney's fees, costs and


damages, according to the
complaint. They claim they
were discriminated against
by Johnson due to their gen-
der and because they were
pregnant.
Marie Mattox, attorney
for Infinger and Vause, has
publicly declined comments
on the case due to the risk
of possibly jeopardizing
the lawsuit. She has also
advised her clients not to
speak to the media, as well.


Capt. Eddie Farris re-
sponded in kind when asked
about the lawsuit. "Now
that it has been filed, Sheriff
Johnson cannot comment on
the case. But as his spokes-
person, I can say that the
sheriff is confident that the
facts of the case will come
out in court and will speak
for themselves and he did
not discriminate against the
women because of their gen-
der or pregnancy."


2007 Quality Water Report
For ARGYLE WATER SYSTEM INC.
We are pleased to announce that our drinking water
meets all federal and state requirements.
We're very pleased to provide you with this year's Annual Water Quality Report. This report is designed to inform you
about the quality water and services we deliver to you every day. Our constant goal is to provide you with a safe and
dependable supply of drinking water. We want you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water
treatment process and protect our water resources. We are committed to ensuring the quality of your water. Our water
source is ground water from 2 wells. The wells draw from the Floridan Aquifer. Because of the excellent quality of our
water, the only treatment required is chlorine for disinfection purposes.
In 2004 the Department of Environmental Protection performed a Source Water Assessment on our system. The
assessment was conducted to provide information about any potential sources of contamination in the vicinity of our
wells. There is one potential source of contamination identified for this,system with a moderate susceptibility level. The
assessment results are available on the FDEP Source Water Assessment and Protection Program website at
www.dep.state.fl.us/swapp or they can be obtained from ARGYLE WATER SYSTEM, INC.
If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact Robert Barley, operations
and maintenance 892-4566 or 892-3299 or 585-3764. We encourage our valued customers to be informed about their
water utility. If you want to learn more, please attend any of our regularly scheduled meetings. They are held on the first
Monday of each month at 7:00 p.m.
Argyle Water System Inc. routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws,
rules, and regulations. Except where indicated otherwise, this report is based on the results of our monitoring for the
period of January 1 to December 31, 2007. Data obtained before January 1, 2007, and presented in this report are from
the most recent testing done in accordance with the laws, rules, and regulations. The sources of drinking water (both tap
water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells. As water travels over the
surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive
material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity.
In the table below, you may find unfamiliar terms and abbreviations. To help you better understand these terms we've
provided the following definitions:
Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL: The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are
set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology.
Maximum Contaminant Level Goal or MCLG: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no
known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety.
Action Level (AL): The concentration of a contaminant which, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements that
a water system must follow.
Initial Distribution System Evaluation (IDSE): An important part of the Stage 2 Disinfection Byproducts Rule (DBPR).
The IDSE is a one-time study conducted by water systems to identify distribution system locations with high
concentrations of trihalomethanes (THMs) and haloacetic acids (HAAs). Water systems will use results from the IDSE, in
conjunction with their Stage 1 DBPR compliance monitoring data to select compliance monitoring locations for the Stage
2 DBPR.
Maximum residential disinfectant level or MRDL - The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water.
There is convincing evidence that addition of a disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants.
Maximum residential disinfectant level goal or MRDLG - The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which
there is no known or expected risk to health. MRDLGs do not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to control
microbial contaminants.
"ND' means not detected and indicates that the substance was not found by laboratory analysis.
Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter (ug/1) - one part by weight of analyte to 1 billion parts by weight of the
water sample.
Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/1) - one part by weight of analyte to 1 million parts by weight of
the water sample.
Picocurie per liter (pCi/L) - measure of the radioactivity in water.

The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs,
springs, and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring
minerals and, in some cases, radioactive materials, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals,
or from human activity.
Contaminants that may be present in source water include:
(A) Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic
systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife.
(B) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban stormwater
runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining or farming.
(C) Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff,
and residential uses.
(D) Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of
industrial processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff, and septic
systems.
(E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining
activities.
In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the EPA prescribes regulations, which limit the amount of certain
contaminants in water provided by public water systems. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations establish
limits for contaminants in bottled water, which must provide the same protection for public health.
Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some
contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk. More
information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection
Agency's Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791.
Thank you for allowing us to continue providing your family with clean, quality water this year. In order to maintain a safe
and dependable water supply, we sometimes need to make improvements that will benefit all of our customers. These
improvements are sometimes reflected as rate structure adjustments. Thank you for understanding.
Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-
compromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ
transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk
from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC
guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbiological
contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791).
We at ARGYLE WATER SYSTEMS INC would like you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the
water treatment process and protect our water resources. We are committed to insuring the quality of your water. If you
have any questions or concerns about the information provided, please feel free to call any of the numbers listed.

"True Blue: To Protect and Serve" features local deputy's story


St. Martins Press in New
York has announced that
"TRUE BLUE To Protect
and Serve" is now available
in bookstores throughout
the United States and Can-
ada. Lt. Randy Sutton, the
Las Vegas police officer who
published "True Blue Police
Stories by Those Who Have
Lived Them" and "A Cop's
Life" has put together an-
other collection of true life
police stories written by the
cops themselves.
Among the stories is that
of Walton County Sheriff's
Office deputy Artie Rodri-
guez. Rodriguez recounts




TRUE BLUE
To PROI I-T AND SeRRvi

UL. RANDY SUTTON


his story of being struck and
seriously injured by a drunk
driver the night of July 11,
2002. Rodriguez was alone
on patrol in his vehicle in
the Sandestin market shops
area. He received a call to a
"shots-fired" incident, and
was on his way with lights
on. A truck came out of the
market shops parking lot,
ran a stop sign, and struck
the right front quarter of
Rodriguez' vehicle. He was
spun around three times,
traveling 364 feet before
coming to stop. Rodriguez
was trapped the vehicle
for 30-35 minutes, with his
own shotgun jammed close


to him. A fire department
team was able to extricate
him using the jaws of life.
Rodriguez suffered sev-
eral broken vertebrae, a
cut wrist, and was badly
bruised. He was able to re-
turn, first to light duty, then
regular duty, several weeks
later. The American Police
Hall of Fame awarded Ro-
driguez the Law Enforce-
ment Purple Heart as a
result of this incident. Ro-
driguez is currently School
Resource Officer at Walton
High School.
Rodriguez was told the
lone driver of the truck that
struck him had a blood alco-


hol level of .254. The driver
was prosecuted for DUI.
The Florida Department of
Transportation used a photo
of Rodriguez' car in a series
of public service announce-
ments on the dangers of
driving under the influ-
ence. Rodriguez was later
approached by Sutton, who
was compiling his book. Ro-
driguez' story was included
under the title, "Trapped
While Wearing the Badge."
In addition to amusing
or shocking stories - from
the sections entitled "War
Stories" or "The Beat" - the
book also stories about life-
changing experiences and


the deaths of their fellow
officers in sections called,
"Line of Duty"E and "The
Fallen." The book allows
the reader into the hearts
of the writers just as it al-
lows readers to view "the
job" through the eyes of po-
lice officers themselves. The
book is dedicated to the
thousands of officers killed
in the line of duty whose
names are engraved upon
the "Law Enforcement Me-
morial" in Washington D.C.


All proceeds from sales of
the book purchased from the
National Law Enforcement
Officers Memorial Fund
(www.nleomf.com) will be
used to build the United
states' first National Law
Enforcement Museum.
The week of May 11 - 18
has been designated Na-
tional Police Week.

his story in new book on law enforcement officers.


Emerald Coast Hospice offering Camp Brave Heart


DEPUTY ARTIE RODRIGUEZ'story is included in new
book, "True Blue: To Protect and Serve."


Emerald Coast Hospice
will be offering a camp for
children this summer. Camp
Brave Heart is designed for
children, ages 7-14, who
have experienced the loss
of a loved one. Regardless of
the type of loss or the reason
for the loss, all children are
invited to apply to attend
Camp Brave Heart.


Experiencing a loss at
any age is difficult, but it is
especially hard on a child.
Camp Brave Heart is run
by clinical experts who un-
derstand the healing pro-
cess and who genuinely care
about the children that are
left behind.

In addition to therapeutic


groups and activities, the
children will participate in
indoor and outdoor activi-
ties such as arts and crafts,
boating, tubing, swimming,
canoeing, field games and
much more.

The camp will be held at
Camp Timpoochee located
in Niceville, FL. The dates


for the camp are July 25-
28. Transportation to the
camp will be provided.

For more information

Tasso community will soon
have close to two miles of
newly-paved roads, sooner
than originally scheduled.
The small community is on
SR-20, about 10 miles west
of Freeport on the Walton-
Okaloosa county line. Pav-
ing for the 11 dirt roads
could begin by the end of
summer and be complete by
the fall of 2009.
Walton County work
crews had the Villa Tasso

project list to complete
sometime in the next two
years, but county commis-
sioners voted recently to put
the project up for bid for an
outside group to begin work

The board will be receiv-
ing donations during the
set-up .on May 2, from 3
p.m.until 4 p.m. Be sure to
bring the donated books in
boxes, not bags, and be sure
they are in good condition. If
the books are damaged due


from the dirt roads into
Choctawhatchee Bay contin-
ues to be of concern to coun-
ty leaders trying to improve
the environmental resourc-
es of the county. Also, the
cost of transporting mainte-
nance vehicles to this west-
ernmost distance of Walton
County to grade the roads,
while fuel costs continue to
rise, make bidding the proj-
ect out more financially at-
tractive for the community
road paving project.
"I'm pleased to see this
effort moved up for the resi-
dents of Villa Tasso," says
District 4 Commissioner
Sara Comander. "These
residents have needed this
area paved for many, many
years, and we expect this
move to not only contribute


to torn pages, torn covers
or mold and mildew, do not
bring them for the sale.
We look forward to seeing
our old reader friends and
many new ones at this sale.
Come browse to your heart's
content and find some good
books to keep you company


to preservation efforts of the
bay, but hopefully to save
taxpayer money in the long
run."
The 11 dirt roads planned
for paving are: Vance Av-

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, MAY 1,2008


People


BIG SKY COUNTRY is, as A. B. Guthrie said, "high, wide and handsome" with breath-
taking vistas that stretch from horizon to the horizon.


THIS WAS THE VIEW from the front porch of the home where the author stayed during
a recent trip to Montana.


A FOREST FIRE can leave its mark years after the em-
bers have gone cold, as evidenced by this ridge inside Yel-
lowstone National Park.


A LONE WOLF forages to find food as springtime comes
to the Rockies.


WHERE THE BUFFALO ROAM. Patches of grass exist
in these mountain peaks, allowing the free-roaming buffalo
to gather food.


By RON KELLEY
"Oh give me a home
where the buffalo roam, and
the deer and the antelope
play..."
This line from "Home On
The Range" perfectly de-
scribes Montana. It is home
to buffalo, deer, antelope,
moose, elk, big horn sheep,
mountain lions, wolves, coy-
ote, beaver and bears that
still roam across vast plains
and rocky mountain pla-
teaus. They also roam both
on and alongside roadways.
Few things are as impres-
sive as seeing herds of ante-
lope and deer grazing out in
the open, maybe fifty yards
from the highway, or pass-
ing a buffalo standing in
the middle of the road. Driv-
ing into southern Montana
through the northern por-
tion of Yellowstone National
Park, all these scenes are
possible.
Montana provides incred-
ible vistas around every
bend in the road. Scenes
that are usually found only
in the movies or on the pag-
es of National Geographic
are suddenly within reach,
stretching out ahead for
many miles, just as far as
the eye can see.
Emerging from the air-
port in Helena, the state
capitol, this reporter
stepped out under the end-
less blue sky and found him-
self looking at snow-capped
mountain ranges on every
side, many as far as 50-75
miles away, or more. Yet,
the view was completely
unobstructed. For a native
Florida flatlander, this was
about as close to heaven as
can be found on this side of
the Great Beyond.
It's said that there are
more cows in Montana
than people and that may
be true. According to the
2000 Census, there are only
902,195 people in the state.
To put that in perspective,
Jacksonville, Florida, has
almost 795,000 citizens. Of


the 902,195 people in Mon-
tana, there are about 56,000
American Indians and Alas-
kan natives. There are only
18,000 Hispanics, about
4,700 Asians and 2,600
blacks.
From a historical stand-
point, Lewis and Clark were
the first white explorers
known to ,have seeing Mon-
tana. The territory became
a state in 1889, one year
after the DeFuniak Herald
first set up shop. The state's
name comes from the Span-
ish word montana, meaning
mountainous, though the
eastern part of Montana
consists of nearly flat pas-
tureland that also stretches
far away into the distance.
Gold, silver and copper
mines were once plentiful
here, too. Most are gone now
and the state is a tourist
destination for outdoor ad-
venturers and a mountain
home for those who truly
want to get away from it all.
It is the isolation that draws
people and the solitude is
compelling. Standing out-
side a mountain home not
far from Boulder, Montana,
it was impossible to see any
neighbor's house. One could
not hear cars or traffic of any
kind, not a wailing siren or
a single human voice. There
was only the whispery wind
through the trees and noth-
ing more.
It was not difficult to
imagine having stepped
back into. a world where
gunslingers, cowboys and
farmers still thrived, where
Crow, Sioux, Arapahoe,
Cheyenne and Blackfeet
Indians hunted buffalo and
deer without number, where
miners panned for. traces
of gold and silver and the
principal means of travel
was on horseback. It is the
land of the Little Bighorn,
the Painted Canyon, the
Elkhorn Mountains and
Yellowstone. It is the land
that Pulitzer Prize-winning
author A.B. Guthrie so per-


fectly described in books like
"These Thousand Hills" and


"The Way West."
It is Big Sky Country.


* A RIVER RUNS THROUGH IT. A river runs through
this section of southern Montana beneath a snow-capped
mountain range near the Montana-Wyoming border.


RUTTING SEASON draws large numbers of elk togeth-
er. Here, as many as four stags are vying for the affections of
one female on a high. ridge.


JUST INSIDE the northern entrance to Yellowstone Na-
tional Park, these grazing elk appear unperturbed by civili-
zation or the snow.


A GHOST TOWN is about all that remains of the once
thriving mining town of Elkhorn. As the mine developed,
the town of Elkhorn grew up around it - boasting as many
as 2,500 people during the 1880s. This old car bears silent
testimony to a world that has moved on, leaving behind only
forgotten relics. Though a few of the original buildings re-
main, Elkhorn is mostly empty save for a few families who
have bought or built homes within its borders.


IN 1868, the first mine was started in the Elkhorn Moun-
tains. The Elkhorn Mine was started in 1875 by A. M.
Holter, a Virginia pioneer. In the space of a dozen years,
the mine was producing $30,000 worth of ore monthly, a
small fortune by that day's standard. Elkhorn's boom days
ended in 1892 when the price of silver dropped. By 1900,
the Elkhorn Mine had produced 8,9 million ounces of silver,
8,500 ounces of gold and more than four million pounds of
lead. Over time, the population dwindled to its current num-
ber, about a dozen people. The Fraternity Hall (foreground)
hosted shows and dances. Next door is Gillian Hall, once a
saloon and a general store.

Ask

Auntie Em

Dear Auntie Em,
I have a 12-year-old who for the last year has been
asking to have a cell phone'. It's not really in my budget
right now and I'm not sure if it's such a great idea to
begin with. What do you think the right age to become
connected is and why?
Out of Touch Mom
(Name and address withheld on request)
Dear Out,
I don't think your name is true (that you are out of
touch). Instead of just giving in, you are asking the
right questions. Some parents give in right away and
think it can't be a bad thing, but there are many issues
surrounding the use of cell phones and "texting" as the
kids call it.
Age is defiantly an issue. Unless your child has a lot
of after-school activities that require them to be in touch,
12 might very well be too young. Once kids get into high
school and have activities that have different hours, a
phone might be needed to keep them in touch with you.
Remember that, just because they have a phone, that
doesn't necessarily mean that you will actually know
where they are at any given time.
If you decide that a cell phone is needed by your child
then ground rules must apply. The best idea is - at this
age - to include them on your own plan so you have
control of minutes, as well as a record of their outgoing
and incoming calls. Your carrier will be able to help with
this.
As they grow older you might want to think about
having them pay for their own phone, but remember - as
long as they are under your roof - you are the parent and
have every right to know who they are talking with and.
how much. I would also advise getting online or talking
with other parents who have children your child's age.
I'm sure you'll hear issues like the kids being on the
phone all hours of the day and night and you will need to
decide how to handle the issues of usage as they pop up.
We have to keep our kids safe in today's world and,
just like with the Internet, parents have a responsibility
to watch over their children and their interaction with
technology and with others.
Take care and God bless,
Auntie Em

have meant to her.
She said that 2007-08
has been an amazing year
with hundreds of priceless
moments for her.
Sassy revealed, "I feel
like I am losing a part of-


my family by giving up this
crown and title. However, I
know it is time for another
young woman to be blessed
with this precious gift. I can
only hope that her year is
as incredible as mine has
been."

Paxton wins district baseball title


By PATRICK CASEY
The Paxton Bobcats cap-
tured their second consecu-
tive baseball District 1,
Class A title with a 10-0 vic-
tory over Laurel Hill at the
OWC baseball complex last
week.
Paxton reached the title
game after dispatching
Rocky Bayou 7-2 in a semi-
final contest. The Bobcats
scored six runs in the first
two innings to give Colby
Forehand some working
room as he picked up the
victory. Ryan Lewellen and
Jesse Crawford each had a
pair of hits.
Rocky Bayou jumped out
to a 2-0 lead in the top of
the first inning, but would
not score again. Paxton held
the Knights to five hits in
winning for the second time
in three meetings against
Rocky Bayou.
Against Laurel Hill, Pax-
ton scored four runs in the
bottom of the first inning as
Colby Forehand tripled with
the bases loaded to provide
the big hit.
Paxton added runs in ev-
ery inning except the fifth to
roll to a 10-0 decision and
the Bobcats won all three
meetings with their arch-
rival this season.
Dan Geoghagan pitched
six innings to pick up the
win and allowed only two
hits to the Hoboes. Geogh-


agan needed only 66 pitches
to shut down the Laurel Hill
lineup and faced more than
three batters in only one in-
ning. He struck out seven
and allowed no walks in se-
curing the district title and
a first round home playoff
game.
Paxton (8-9) took advan-
tage of five fielding errors by
Laurel Hill to help build the
lead while the Bobcats com-
mitted no fielding miscues
in either of their tourna-
ment games.
Laurel Hill's Jon Lyons
pitched four innings, but


could not pull off the same
magic he had 48 hours ear-
lier when the Hoboes elimi-
nated top-seeded Central
5-0.
Game Notes: Paxton is
4-4 in the state playoffs. The
Bobcats will host Graceville
(13-14) ,in the first round.
The Tigers have 10 seniors
on the squad and have
played a difficult sched-
ule that includes Chipley,
Holmes County, Altha and
Marianna. The winner will
face the Laurel Hill at Ma-
lone winner on Friday, May
2.


PAXTON'S DAN GEOGHAGAN threw a two-hit master-
piece against Laurel Hill last week to help the Bobcats earn
a state playoff bid. Geoghagan also had three hits, includ-
ing a pair of doubles.


South Walton defeats Holmes


County, but falls to


By PATRICK CASEY
The South Walton Sea-
hawks could not muster any,
offense in the second round
of the Class 3A softball play-
offs as the visiting: Chipley
Tigers eliminated the home
team with a 3-0 victory.
Chipley (20-5) got a com-
plete game from junior Jes-
sica Bush, who struck out
10 batters while allowing
only four hits and the Tigers
advanced to the regional fi-
nal.
Chipley scored in the
fourth inning as Rachael
Fowler drilled a two-run
home run, her fourth of the
season, after an error had
put a Tiger runner on base
to take a 2-0 lead. A wild
pitch in the seventh inning
with the bases loaded gave
the Tigers a 3-0 margin.
The Seahawks had scor-
ing opportunities as the Ti-
gers committed three errors
and also allowed four hits,
but South Walton could not
come up with the big hit as
they had done in their previ-
ous two games.
In the first round, sopho-
more Casey Ogden smacked
a two-out, bases-loaded
single in the bottom of the
sixth inning as the South
Walton Seahawks won their
first softball playoff game
in school history with-a 2-1
come from behind victory at
home against the Holmes
County Bluedevils.


The Seahawks had been
held scoreless for the first
five: .,innings as Holmes
County junior pitcher Mary
Elizabeth Pippin kept the
Seahawks at bay by record-
ing key outs when the South
Walton squad got runners
in scoring position. That did
not happen often, but the
Seahawks stranded run-
ners at third base in two
innings and had another
picked off second base in the
sixth inning, as it appeared
the Bluedevils would escape
with a 1-0 victory.
That changed in the sixth
inning as Caroline Peterson
walked with Brittany Jay
and Shelby Watson follow-
ing with singles to load the
bases. After Pippin struck
out the next batter, Ogden
stepped to the plate and
drilled a single up the mid-
dle to plate Peterson and
Jay for a one-run lead. The
Seahawks were unable to
do any more damage, but it
was enough.
Sophomore Shelby Wat-
son returned to the mound
for her seventh inning of
work and took the drama
out of the finish by record-
ing three straight outs to
grab the 2-1 victory. Watson
struck out 11 batters of the
21 outs recorded and issued
only one walk while allow-
ing two hits.
"Hurdles," South Wal-
ton Head Coach Phil Tisa


Chipley
stressed after the game.
"We have had hurdles to
climb to. get where we are.,
We beat Walton a fourth
time to make the playoffs,
Pensacola Catholic at their
place to earn home field
advantage and a very good
Holmes County squad to
keep playing. I'm 27 years
old and they are going to
cause me to get blood pres-
sure medication with these
late comebacks."
The Seahawks had six
hits in the contest with Jay
and Ogden supplying two
apiece. Each team commit-
ted two errors in the low
scoring affair.
Game Notes: The South
Walton-Holmes County
game lived up to its billing
as a pitcher's duel between
Watson and Pippin. The two
hurlers are among the bet-
ter pitchers in the Panhan-
dle and both are underclass-
men and likely to square off
again next season. South
Walton grabbed wins over
Pensacola Catholic and
Holmes County with clutch
hitting. The sixth inning
has been the inning to rally
for the Seahawks as Wat-
son hit a home run against
Catholic to tie the district
championship game and
Casey Ogden's bases loaded
single plated two runs to
pull out the win against the
Bluedevils. Both losses for
South Walton on the season
came against Chipley. The
Tigers beat South Walton
6-1 in Chipley on February
14.


THE PAXTON BOBCATS CELEBRATED their second consecutive district title with a
10-0 win over Laurel Hill in the District 1, Class A baseball championship game.



Freeport baseball


squad makes playoffs


By PATRICK CASEY
The Freeport Bulldogs
qualified for the state play-
offs for the first time since
1997 as they defeated the
Ponce de Leon Pirates last
week 12-5 in a District 1,
Class 2A semi-final.
The Bulldogs followed up
the semi-final win with a
hard fought home loss to the
Jay Royals 3-2 in eight in-
nings in the district champi-
onship game to earn a first
round state playoff road trip
to Altha on Tuesday.
Freeport (17-10) entered
the district tournament as
the host while earning the
#2-seed and a first round
bye in the six-team district.
The Bulldogs were matched
with PDL after the Pirates
dispatched Pensacola Chris-
tian 16-5 in an opening
round contest.
PDL's Jared Bump held
Freeport at bay for five in-
nings as the Pirates built a
5-3 lead, but things came
unglued in the bottom of the
sixth inning as the Bulldogs
plated nine runs to rally and
got the bats going to rally


for the win and defeat the
Pirates for the third time
this season.
Drew Farris pounded out
four hits while Cole Weeks
picked up the win, setting
up a, third, game with the
Jay Royals for the district
title.

Jay got a pair of runs in
the third inning to take a
2-0 lead*as Brandt Hen-
dricks and Myles Hammac
each drove in a run to put
the Royals up early.
Freeport responded with
two runs in the top of the
fifth inning as Josh Rhodes
and Drew Farris countered
with RBI hits to tie the game
at 2-2.
The game stayed that
way until the bottom of the
eighth inning when Tyler
DeGraaf ended the game
with a two-out single to give
Jay (17-4) a 3-2 victory.
Both Hendricks and
Freeport's Michael Graziani
pitched the entire game
with Hendricks. striking out
16 Freeport batters.
Game Notes: Freeport


lost all three meetings with
the Royals this season, but
took them to eight innings
in two of the, three games.
Freeport may get another
shot at the Royals if they can
win in Altha and Jay knocks
off Panama City Bozeman in
the opening round. Second
round games will be played
on Friday, May 2. Both Al-
tha antd Freeport are 0-3 in
the state playoffs, meaning
one of the two schools is go-
ing to get their first play-
off win in school history
on Tuesday, April 29. (The
game had not been played
as of our weekly press dead-
line.) PDL beat Altha 15-5
on March 1 in the only meet-
ing between the two schools,
but Altha has solid pitching,
so winning on the road will
require a solid effort from
Freeport's pitching staff.
Freeport Coach Gene Martin
has been the head coach in
all three of Freeport's prior
playoff games. The Bulldogs
lost in 1988 to Jay 11-3, in
1990 to Pensacola Catholic
19-3 and in 1997 to Liberty
County 9-1.


Griffin says farewell to OWC


By CHUCK HINSON
After nearly 700 baseball
game wins at Okaloosa-
Walton College, head coach
Keith Griffin puts his 31
-year coaching career on the
shelf. He served at OWC for
six years, but neither he nor
the team could seem to find
the right- mix to ever finish
with a winning season.
Last Tuesday, he an-
nounced to his team that he
would be stepping down, one
day after handing in his res-
ignation to athletic director
Mickey Englett.


Griffin ended his career
at OWC with a record of
192-113 ovreall and 68-77 in
conference play. In his sec-
ond year with the Raiders,
he did manage to take the
team to second place in the
Panhandle Conference and
then place second overall in
the state.
In the last three years,
OWC had not been able to
find that extra something
to pull them out of the hole.
The Raiders have gone
82-69 overall and 22-48 in
conference play, finishing
fifth twice and placing sixth
in this year's standings.


Griffin did recruit well
during his time at OWC,
with 14 of his former play-
ers signing with pro teams.
During his career, he did,
serve as assistant coach for
the Raiders, before leav-
ing to coach Jefferson Da-
vis Community College in
Birmingham, AL. where he
won a national champion-
ship in his second year.
To his credit, Griffin had
racked up two state titles
and five conference titles be-
fore heading back to OWC
in 2002. The
search for his replacement
has already begun.


SOUTH WALTON'S SHELBY WATSON pitched the Se-
ahawks past Holmes County 2-1, but could not do so against
Chipley in the second round as the Tigers blanked South
Walton 3-0 in a second round playoff game.


SOUTH WALTON'S CASEY OGDEN is all smiles after
driving in a pair of runs in the bottom of the sixth inning for
a 2-1 win over Holmes County in the first round of the Class
3A softball playoffs.

Baseball, softball area teams end season


By PATRICK CASEY
The end of April brings
the close of high school soft-
ball and baseball seasons
for many of our area schools.
This year, only three of the
ten teams in our area were
able to qualify for the state
playoffs: South Walton in
softball and Freeport and
Paxton in baseball. For the
other seven, the end came
quickly and not spectacu-
larly for most.
Walton saw its softball
team fall to South Walton for
the fourth time this season
5-0 in the District 1, Class
3A semi-final. The Braves
were unable to match the
Seahawks pitching prow-
ess and fielded a very young
squad after suffering heavy
losses due to graduation in
2007. The Lady Braves fin-
ished 8-11, but will have a
solid nucleus back for next
season. Their main problem
will be to get past a South
Walton team that may be
even better next season.
The Walton baseball team
finished 11-12 after losing
to Northview 8-0 in a Dis-
trict 1, Class 3A contest
against .Northview in Pen-
sacola Catholic last week.
The Braves were down to 12
varsity players for their final
game, but show lots of prom-
ise for the future. Pensacola
Catholic will continue to be
one of the top teams in the
area, due to solid talent and
a good junior varsity pro-


gram while Northview will
have pitcher Jeff Price back
for his senior season next
year. The Braves will be in
a battle from the outset next
year to qualify for the play-
offs, but Walton should at
least get to host the district
tournament in 2009.
Ponce de Leon suffered
through a rough season in
'softball this year. The Pi-
rates had only a handful
of wins and fielded a very
young varsity team. The Pi-
rates should improve next
season, but their district
is very competitive, so how
good they will be will be de-
termined by the strength of
several of their district foes.
The PDL baseball team did
not have dominant pitching,
but did have a solid rotation
that could deliver a win on
any night. The Pirates went
14-11, but errors in the field
kept them from winning
more games and hurt in a
12-5 loss to Freeport in the
District 1, Class 2A semi-
final last week.
Paxton finished 3-12 in
softball and has trouble get-
ting over basketball season
in time to be effective in soft-
ball season. The Bobcats are
another squad that gets de-
cent pitching, but has trou-
ble in the field and scoring
runs. The Paxton baseball
team continues to play solid
baseball in the post-season
and won the district title
with one of the youngest


teams on the field in school
history. The future is bright
for the Bobcats if they can
stay healthy in both base-
ball and basketball for the
next two to three seasons
and it doesn't hurt that Jeff
Bradley coaches both units
so he is quite familiar with
the players' talents.
South Walton saw their
baseball team improve to
12-11 this season, but still
post an 0-7 mark against
District 1, Class 3A foes. The
Seahawks still need to find
pitching that can shut down
an opponent, but had one of
the better hitting and run
scoring units in 2008. Their
baseball squad next season
should be solid, but Walton,
Northview and Pensacola
Catholic will make it hard
to climb far in that district.
The Seahawks softball team
finished 23-2 and lost both
games against the Chipley
Tigers, including a 3-Q loss
in Friday's second round
Class 3A state playoff game.
The Seahawks will be the
district favorite again next
season and will likely beef
up the schedule for some
stronger competition. ,Phil
Tisa did a great job to coach
a young squad that will be
hungry for more playoff suc-
cess next season.
Freeport saw the soft-
ball squad finish 9-16 under
Coach Charles Trotman.
The Bulldogs fell victim to
one bad inning in several of
their games and lost six con-
tests by three runs or less.
Fielding continued to haunt
the Bulldogs at times, but
the squad should have a
chance to climb the District
1, Class 2A standings next
season if the roster stays in-
tact. The Freeport baseball
team had one of its best sea-
sons in years as the squad
enters the playoffs with a
17-10 record. Gene Martin
has done a solid job using a
half dozen pitchers to keep


his starters well-rested and
the Bulldogs lineup can
mash the ball all over the


field. This group should be first playoff game in Free-
strong again next season port baseball history this
and could win the school's week.

Noles, Canes and Gators get low draft picks


By CHUCK HINSON for Florida State, and this
It is a never-ending story past weekend's NFL draft


By CHUCK HINSON
Despite a little rain and
several wrecks and pile-
ups, nothing could soak the
,spirits of Kyle Busch who
crossed the finish line and
won the Aaron's 499 on Sun-
day at Talladega. It was his
second straight Sprint Cup
race and his fourth straight
weekend with a NASCAR
victory.


They said he would never
be able to take on Talla-
dega and leave with even
placing in the top 10. But
Kyle Busch blasted by his
opponents, hushed the crit-
ics and racked up enough
points to throw him into the
top three spots for the NA-
SCAR Sprint Cup.

It was his first win at Tal-


picks were no exceptions. player selected in the 86
The Seminoles had one picks of the 2008 NFL open-


ladega and it all happened
after he fought back from
being a lap down. After the
caution flag was flown when
a 13-car accident brought
the race track to a halt,
Busch slowly made his way
to the front of the pile and
then coasted in over the fin-
ish line.
Busch now has wins on a


road course, a short track,
an intermediate track and a
super speedway. He seems
to be on a streak that can't
seem to be extinguished.

Juan Pablo finished sec-
ond to match his career
best on an oval track since
moving to the NASCAR cir-
cuit in 2006. Denny Hamlin
came in third.

The Seminoles, . which
combined a 22-17 record
over the past three seasons,

Finding bass at home


in riprap


By BOYD DUCKETT
There's an easy way to
know when the water in
,your favorite lake warms
up: massive quantities of
"pleasure boaters flock to it.
Now don't get me wrong, I
love being out on the water
as much as anybody and
:I understand that people
-would want to ski or tube or
just enjoy the scenery. But if
,you are like me and trying
,to catch a fish, you'd prefer
to avoid the traffic.
So when looking for a
place to catch bass that's
Usually off the radar for
.'most pleasure boats, you
can either target the really
,skinny water in the backs of
:toves or head for the riprap.
Though skiers might not en-
joy running wide open across
the jagged rocks, these areas
are home to quality fish just
about any time of year. And
if you don't have a boat - or
if the ramp is too crowded to
launch - you can fish these
areas from the bank? too.
For those of you who
might not know, riprap is a


man-made structure of nat-
ural rock and/or, chunks of
concrete that is stacked on
the shore to prevent waves
from eroding the banks and
- in the case of navigable
rivers - maintain channel
depths. You can find these
areas near dams or bridges,
and most pros like myself
never pass these areas up
when fishing a tournament.
Riprap usually signals that
there is a steep bank with
close access to deep water
and a current - all recipes
for success when bass fish-
ing. Within the riprap there
is ideal habitat for crawfish
as well as other baitfish
that come in from deeper
water to feed on the algae.
Shad also spawn near these
areas and the feeding bass
- especially as the days get
hotter - will begin to school
in these areas. Bass, being
opportunistic feeders, move
into the riprap looking for
easy meals' on this type of
prey.
For fishing riprap, I like a
crankbait like most people.


But when the bass are hold-
ing deeper than the crank-
bait will dive, I switch to a
%-ounce spinnerbait with
two willow leaf blades. This
is especially effective in the
summer with the numbers
of shad in and around the
riprap. Blue and metal flake
colors match the baitfish, but
I put the spinnerbait over
the top by adding a Berkley
PowerBait 4-inch Bungee
Twin Tail Grub. I let the
heavy spinnerbait sink to
the bottom and fish it. with
a hop-and-stop retrieve that
bounces off the rocks. Be-
cause of the abrasive rocks,
I rig this bait with 20-pound
Berkley Trilene 100-percent
fluorocarbon on a high-speed
Abu Garcia REVO reel and
a 7-foot medium action rod.
If the bass are bunched
together in a tight spot like a
corner or culvert, I will pick
up a spinning rod and cast
soft plastics on a %-ounce
jig head. I'll cast a Power-
Bait 3-inch Power Grub on
10-pound Trilene fluorocar-
bon line from as many dif-

ferent angles to make sure I
get to as many bass as I can
in that area.
Though there could be
hundreds of feet or a couple
miles of riprap, not all areas
will hold fish. Look for areas
with prominent features or
some kind of irregularity
like a corner, point or prox-
imity to a channel. Also,
look for area where the rip-
rap ends and the normal
bottom begins. This can be
in anywhere from 6-12 feet
of water and bass will often
relate to that edge and wait
there for an easy meal. Once
you figure out what that
depth is, you can focus your
baits in that depth of water
in hopes of enticing a bass to
strike.
I've caught a lot of bass
out of riprap in my career.
And while it might just look
like a bunch of rocks to all
the other boaters out there
on the water, once you fig-
ure out how to locate and
.catch fish out of these areas,
you may decide to fish there
all year long.

"Mysteries in the Middle" literacy



event draws crowd at WMS


By BRUCE COLLIER
Walton Middle School
(WMS) offered an array of
events for last week's Lit-
eracy Week, but the school's
presentation of "Mysteries
in the Middle" may have
drawn the largest crowd
from the community. WMS
students and their parents
and siblings gathered last
Thursday in the school's caf-
eteria for a pre-show meal of
pizza, soft drinks, and cake.
' The WMS choir got the au-
dience warmed up, perform-
ing show tunes and songs


from times past. "Mysteries
in the Middle" playwright
Dr. Angela Martin took cen-
ter stage to introduce the
play, an interactive mystery
designed to teach students
and parents a list of read-
ing strategies. Martin also
assumed the role of director
and detective. The play is set
on a Hollywood sound stage,
and is performed by charac-
ters based on popular celeb-
rities. "Guest celebs" were
played by WMS faculty, and
had names like Tom Snooze,
Paris Econolodge, and Hil-


lary Buff. Members of the
"paparazzi" were played
by WMS Drama Club. The
mystery involved the disap-
pearance and possible theft
of the school mascot, an
Aardvark.


their families seemed to en-
joy the performance, which
involved their interpreting
and recording clues and evi-
dence in an effort to retrieve
the Aardvark and nail the
mascot-napper. Beast and
culprit were rounded up at
the end, which was followed

PERHAPS THIS WILL REFRESH YOUR MEMORY: Missing aardvark brought to heel
at climax of "Mysteries in the Middle" at WMS.

In an attempt to help peo-
ple in surrounding commu-
nities, Paxton High School's
Media Crew and the P.H.S.
National Honor Society de-
cided to "adopt" Shelter
House Foundation as their
community service project
for the 2007-2008 school
year. Thanks to faculty and
staff members, students,
and parents, the clubs were
able to reach their goal.
Shelter House is a non-
profit organization that
serves the survivors of do-
mestic violence in Okaloosa
and Walton counties. The


goal of the agency is to break
the cycle of this abuse. Shel-
ter House provides its clients
with a wide array of services
which allow 'them to escape
danger and start rebuilding
their lives.

One student who did an
outstanding job of collect-
ing money and donation
items was freshman Shaq
Jackson. His mother, Emma
Grace Jackson, helped Shaq
collect the donated items.
Shaq collected more items
than anyone at Paxton High
School. His contribution of


canned foods, toiletries, and
school supplies will greatly
help the residents of Shelter
House.

The P.H.S. National Hon-
or Society and Media Crew
also expressed thanks to
Dale Holloway, an employee
of Paxton High, who trans-
ported the donated items to
the DeFuniak Springs office
of Shelter House. Holloway
loaded the truck that was
absolutely filled to the top
with all the "goodies" that
Paxton High School had do-
nated.

4-H Tropicana speech


contest held


By JEFFREY POWELL
- According to 4-H Exten-
sion Agent Suzanne Wilson,
"4-H is about developing life
skills in young people. To-
night was a real success for
4-H and the students who
were involved, they are af-
ter all our future leaders."
: Wilson's comments came
at the conclusion of Tues-
day's 4-H Tropicana Speech
Contest. The April 22 event
was held at the Freeport
High School auditorium and
was attended by many area
teachers and principals.
Students from the 4th, 5th
and 6th grades participated
in the contest.
America's largest non-
formal educational program
for youth, 4-H annually
reaches approximately 6.5
million young people. The
educational programs help
children develop inquiring
minds, learn practical skills,
strengthen decision-making
abilities, improve commu-


nications and interpersonal
relationships and ultimate-
ly share their skills and ex-
perience in leadership roles.
The Tropicana/4-H pub-
lic speaking contest is de-
signed to give students ex-
perience in the preparation
and delivery of a speech.
The program is sponsored
by Tropicana Products and
administered through the
4-H youth development pro-
gram cooperative Extension
at the University of Florida.
More than 116,000 young
people in 46 Florida counties
in grades 4-6 participated in
the contest last year. Tropi-
cana has been involved with
4-H nationally for 75 years
and active in Florida for
over 30 years.
A board of distinguished
judges decided that the win-
ners were: 4th-grade 1st
place Hannah Salszlein, 2nd
place Grant Leuze, 3rd place
Chloe Andrews, honorable
mention Natile Hillis: 5th-


grade 1st place Cody Pick-
ren, 2nd place Mary Kate
Myrick, 3rd place Kayla
Jackson, honorable men-
tion Melanie Anderson; 6th-
grade !st place Jesse Carroll,
2nd place Shelci Rhoem, 3rd
place Terry Gastauer, hon-
orable mention Isaac War-
riner.

Other award winners
were Most Persuasive 4th-
grade: Lizzie McDuffie, 5th-
grade Shelie Busbee, 6th-
grade Terry Gastauer; Most
Informative 4th-grade: Jus-
tus Castillo, 5th-grade Ash-
ley Ward, 6th-grade Shelci
Rhoem; Most Entertaining
4th grade: Greer Hirschman,
5th-grade Melanie Ander-
son, 6th-grade Isaac Warri-
ner.
"I would like to thank the
MCs Rhonda Skipper and
John Gradick and everyone
else involved in this effort."
said Wilson, "especially the
sound crew and the judges."

All signs point



to consensus


By LEAH STRATMANN
.Dave Rauschkolb, one of
the people behind the Scenic
Pride Initiative, which was
in turn one of the groups
vehemently opposed to the
signs erected by the Tourist
Development Council (TDC),
called a meeting last week
to try and find consensus
among all the groups and
to integrate all the pending
signage in Walton County.
Representatives from
the TDC, Friends of Scenic
30A, Friends of Timpoochee
Trail, the Scenic 98 Corri-
dor Association, the Board
of County Commissioners
(BCC), Choctawhatchee Ba-
.sin Alliance (CBA), and the
South Walton Community
Council (SWCC) all came to
the TDC conference room to
discuss how to go forward.
At issue are wayfinding and
community signs for the 30A
corridor, safety and mile
markers for Timpoochee
Trail, and information and
educational signs for the
Coastal Dune Lakes.
"We all need to work to-
gether in a positive way
to create signage we can
agree on and be proud of,"
Rauschkolb noted.
Acting director of the
TDC Sonny Mares told the
crowd the community signs
have all come down, but the
directional signs are still
up. "We will try to utilize
the investment we have in
some way, maybe for a col-
lege or something. We are
excited about this meet-
ing and want to work with
all the groups to make this
work for the community," he
said.
"The silver lining in all
of this is working with the
TDC and taking some heat
off the TDC," Rauschkolb
said.
Leigh Moore, the execu-
tive director of the Scenic 98
Corridor Association, which
covers an area from the Bay
County line to the Okaloosa
County line, said there was
some possibility of using the
big blue signs along that cor-
ridor, but more research has
to be done. "The guidelines


say signs should be no wider
than 12 feet and no taller
than 12 feet and obviously
these signs do not fit that,"
she said.
Rauschkolb commented
that it was important that
so many organizations were
represented and encouraged
everyone to speak up and'
speak their minds.
There was a lot of discus-
sion about the signs which
will be placed soon along the
Timpoochee Trail. Tony Ro-
driguez of Signtek, the Val-
paraiso company selected to
fabricate the signs, attended
the meeting. There was also
a large .book showing the
proposed signs for the trail.
The signage was designed
and suggested by Jona-
than Mugmon and based on
guidelines from the Florida
Green Book, which details
signage for multi-use trails.
The safety signs have been
funded and approved at a
cost of $164,000.
Commissioner Cindy
Meadows, who has taken
the lead in getting signs
put up along the trail, said
the money came from recre-
ational plat fees, partly by
funds given by the TDC and
the remainder by the coun-
ty. The proposed signs will
number 120, which struck
many in the audience as far
too many signs.
Dan McClary, represent-
ing the Friends of the Tim-
poochee Trail said, "The
biggest issue is blind in-
tersections and streets. We
have been trying for many
years to get this addressed.
A year ago we went up and
down the entire path, look-
ing at it and pointing out
the dangers. A bike travel-
ing 12 miles per hour covers
18 feet per second. We just
want to make it a little bit
safer. I think we need all
120 signs," he said.
Some took issue with
the fact that some of the
signs shown in the book had
stripes on the poles. Mead-
ows said every safety is-
sue was looked at. "We are
thinking about county li-
ability here as well," Mead-


. ows emphasized. "These
discussions can't go on lon-
ger than a week or two. The
fabricator has the materials
and this is ready to go as
soon as everybody signs off
on this. The county will be
doing the crosswalks at the
same time the signs go up,"
she concluded.
"I will let the color po-
lice, and I don't mean that
disparagingly, decide what
color but from a safety point
of view, this was approved
in March 2006 with a sign
consultant. The design was
made more than a year ago.
A multi-use path is just
that. I'm a big fan of pave-
ment markings too," Mc-
Clary said.
McClary also questioned
why the sign consultant was
absent from the meeting.
He had been in touch with
Mugman, who works out of
Tallahassee and determined
there was money left on the
contract and he was free to
attend, but apparently had
not gotten and invitation
form Commissioner Mead-
ows. "It's absolute b.s. that
he isn't here. He's the ex-
pert," McClary noted. The
proposal calls for five warn-
ing signs per mile along the
18.6 miles of the trail.
Rosemary Beach town
manager Jim Bagby said,
"Our sign expert said put
up the big blue signs and he
was wrong."
Meanwhile, the Signtek
representative was being
peppered with questions he
could not answer. He was
asked if a mock-up of the
signs could be made and
brought to the next meet-
ing, planned for Tuesday,
April 29 at 1 p.m. He said
he didn't have to author-
ity to create a mock-up and
would need something from
the county allowing the
work to be done. Those in
attendance were unwilling
to accept the signs proposed
until they could see what
the stripes would look like.
"Any change along
30A freaks people out,"

Animal control


amendment


generates much


discussion


By CHRIS MANSON
The Walton County Board
of County Commissioners*
(BCC) met last Tuesday for
a second public hearing con-
cerning an amendment to
the existing animal control
ordinance. Last month, the
BCC sent the draft amend-
ment back to Animal Con-
trol to work on specific items
like leash requirements for
dogs and cats, pet dealers
and "puppy mills," and the
transportation of animals.
Again, District 5 Commis-
sioner Cindy Meadows ex-
pressed concern for a lack of
a spay and neuter program
in the county.. She asked
the Animal Control team to
research the availability of
grants for such a program.
The transportation sec-
tion of the amendment for-
bids the transport of dogs,
cats, and other pets in open
beds of vehicles unless the
animals are enclosed in. a
carrier or tethered by a col-
lar or harness. The item also
makes it illegal to transport
animals in temperatures
above 90 degrees or below
40 degrees Fahrenheit.
District 4 Commissioner
Sara Comander said she did
not disagree but wondered
how the ordinance would


be enforced. Animal Control
representatives said viola-
tors would be confronted af-
ter two or more complaints
and a sworn statement had
been filed. Comander also
expressed a need to educate
the public about the pro-
posed amendment. Christo-
pher Mitchell, public infor-
mation officer, was tasked
with getting information
out. He said the draft would
be posted on the county's
Web site.
During the public hear-
ing, Blue Mountain Beach
resident Emmett Hildreth
challenged the draft's defi-
nition of public beaches. He
requested a dialogue with
the BCC to discuss private
property rights. "Walton
County cannot convey 'title,'
can't just pull out of the air
that (certain areas) are pub-
lic when people own deeds to
the property," said Hildreth.
He asked the BCC to remove
or amend that section of the
document.
Two other citizens ad-
dressed this concern.
Bill Bard, of Santa Rosa
Beach, reiterated a sugges-
tion he made a month ago

Solution for


Oyster Lake


causeway in offing


By LEAH STRATMANN
The meeting last week
of the Coastal Dune Lake
Advisory Board (CDLAB)
featured a relatively short
agenda. Most of the discus-
sion centered on finding
a way to make everybody
happy in the Oyster Lake
community, with some
folks wanting to replace the
causeway currently making
the interchange between
the lake and adjacent wet-
lands impossible to a pe-
destrian bridge, and others
saying that was not possible
because of the space needed
for emergency vehicles.
Cliff Knauer, an engi-
neer with Preble-Risch and
engineer of record on the
project attended the meet-
ing and noted the Florida
Forever grant, secured to
remove and replace the old
causeway with a bridge,
has been extended twice by.
the. Northwest Florida Wa-
ter Management District.
The grant provides funds
to place a vehicular bridge
at the west side of Oyster
Lake, a pedestrian bridge on
the east side of the lake and
a vehicular bridge replacing
the culvert at the outfall of
the lake on CR-30A. After
the east side causeway was
removed and replaced with
a pedestrian bridge, many
area residents approached
the Coastal Dune Lake Ad-
visory Board wanting a pe-
destrian bridge on the west
side as well.


Laura Pennington from
the county's public works
department said the prob-
lem is emergency vehicle ac-
cess. Further, if a pedestri-
an, rather than a vehicular
bridge is installed, another
road would have to be cre-
ated and paved to provide
emergency access to the
area and there is no county
money available for such a
project for years to come.
CDLAB chairman Meg
Nelson suggested thinking
outside of the normal arena
of vehicular and pedestrian
bridges. "What if we build
a vehicle bridge, which has
already been funded, ap-
proved and permitted and
then not allow any vehicles
other than emergency ve-
hicles to use it? We could
put removable stanchions
down the center which could
be moved if an emergency
vehicle needed access," she
noted.
Taking a poll of the par-
ties present, Pennington
said this would meet the ap-
proval of public works, and
construction could begin
before the grant timing was
expired for a third time.
Jacquie Markel said she
couldn't speak for every-
one in favor of a pedestrian
bridge, but the idea seemed
to be a potential solution.
"This has to be a commu-
nity initiative," Nelson not-
ed, "we are only an advisory

SHOOTING THE BREEZE


When one is moving from
a place too big to a place
much smaller, it is typical to
look around and ask yourself
what you can do without. In
my case, there were several
things, all in good condi-
tion, so I decided to try and
sell the stuff to people who
might need the very stuff I
no longer did.
At the suggestion of a
friend, I put an ad on craig-
slist. If you've never been
to this site, it is a fascinat-
ing microcosm of the world.
You can advertise, for free,
for virtually anything, from
a companion to unloading
a TV with stand you never
use.
I purchased the TV from
someone who needed some
fast cash on the theory it
might be nice to have a TV
in the bedroom in case I was
sick in bed and wanted to
watch a movie or something.
I think I've had the TV on
fewer than eight times in
the two years I've had it and
then while watching the
news or something while I
dressed. I don't like having
a TV in there; it's like a gi-
ant eye watching my every
move. It gives me the creeps
and does nothing for the de-
cor either, although it is a
nice enough appliance with
great picture quality. I find
when I'm not feeling well
and need some pain-numb-
ing movie to soothe me, I'd


much prefer
to be in my
recliner, so
the TV has
seen little ac-
tion.
Craigslist
is divided up
geographi-
cally and the
closest large
city to us is
Pensacola, so
I went there
and listed my - .
items, mak-
ing sure peo-
ple knew they were located
in Fort Walton Beach. The
day after I listed the items,
I got an email from someone
interested in the television.
He said he wanted the set
and the stand and to please
delete the listing. He asked
for my address so he could
send me a check. He said
he wouldn't call because he
was hard of hearing, but he
would send the check and
then send someone to pick
up his items. It was clear
from the awkward wording
of his message that English
was not his first language.
So I gave him my name
and address and suggested
he send a money order in-
stead.. He said no, he would
send a check by UPS, which
I found strange, but basi-
cally I figured the dude was
yanking my chain and gave
it little more thought.


A few
days later I
got another
message
saying he
had directed
his secre-
tary to send
the check,
but she
had made
a mistake
a and drawn
a check for
$2,500. He
suggested I
should cash
the check, deduct for the
television and stand and an-
other $50 for my "trouble"
and he would tell me where
to send the remainder. The
alarm bells started to go off.
But hey, I was born at night,
but not last night, so I knew
I was OK.
A few days later UPS duly
stopped by my house with
an express envelope con-
taining a check for $2,500
and nothing else. The check
was made out to Lean Strat-
mann (oh, how I wish I was
lean, but that's another col-
umn).
I sent the guy a mes-
sage saying I had gotten the
check but my name was mis-
spelled. He said since it was
such a slight error, I could
probably still cash it. Still
no details on how to refund
his money.
So donning my best Miss

Marple outfit, I called the
FBI. I had handled the en-
velope and check with care
to preserve fingerprints,
don't ya know. The lady an-
swering the phone at the
FBI would have been hard
pressed to be less impressed
with my sleuthing skills. She
said it happens all the time
and most often they only
hear about it after someone
has been ripped off, I asked
her if I should try to get an
address to either send back
the check or an address for
a refund and she said it was
unlikely that information
would be forthcoming. She
said I should go to the Web
site and file a complaint,
which I did.
I then called my bank and
asked them what would hap-
pen if I deposited the check.
I explained that I knew
the check was bogus, but
I wanted to see if we could
track them a bit further.
Vicki Chance, the manager.
of, First City Bank said she
would be delighted to help
me in any way she could, so
once my move is complete,
I'm going to see how far I
can follow this trail.

South Walton Fire District in 100-percent

Compliance with National Seatbelt Pledge


The National Fallen Fire-
fighters Foundation's "Ev-
eryone Goes Home" cam-
paign has recognized the
South Walton Fire District
(SWFD) for their 100'percent
participation in pledging to
use seatbelts whenever they
are in a Fire District vehicle.
The South Walton Fire Dis-
trict joins only 17 other fire
departments in the State of
Florida to receive this dis-
tinction and recognition.

Officially known as the
"Brian Hunton: Nation-
al Fire Service Seat Belt
Pledge," it was named after
firefighter Christopher Bri-


With beach and bath-
ing suit season rapidly ap-
proaching, in no particular
order here are some great
fitness guidelines to keep in
mind when beginning an ex-
ercise program.
First and foremost, get
clearance from a physician
before starting any and all
fitness programs.
Drink water and eat! The
best advice for those start-
ing an exercise program is to
train the body to want and
accept roughly one gallon of
water every day and 4-6 sup-
portive meals. Be sure those
meals consist of whole food
sources of proteins, fats and
carbs with portions aligned
correctly with one's goals.
Master bodyweight moves
first! A lot of beginners make
the mistake of doing what
everyone else is doing. First
problem with this is, most
likely everyone else is doing
something wrong. A person
should train for goals at
their own pace. Master one's
bodyweight before jumping
into free weights, machines
and cables. There is no point
in doing bench presses if one
can't do perfect push-ups.
It's useless to perform leg
extensions or leg curls with-
out being able to do perfect
free squats (stay away from
leg extensions regardless).
Bodyweight moves first,
then a steady combination
of bodyweight moves, ma-
chines, free weights and
cables,
We don't live life sitting
down, so don't train sitting
down.
Quick intense cardio!


an Hunton, 27, a member of
the Amarillo Texas Fire De-
partment for one year. On
April 23, 2005 he fell out
of-his fire truck responding
to an alarm and died two
days later from his injuries.
Hunton was not wearing his
seatbelt.
The pledge reads: "I
pledge to wear my seatbelt
whenever I am riding in
Fire Department vehicles. I
further pledge to insure
that all my brother and sis-
ter firefighters riding with
me wear their seatbelts. I
make this pledge willingly;
to honor Brian Hunton my
brother firefighter and be-


As for cardio, do it quick,
with 30 minutes of intense
interval type "stuff." I, for
one, recommend everyone
burn their calories through
resistance workouts, but if
anyone loves cardio, keep
it short, intense and always
progress. Don't fall into the
trap of doing the same thing
over and over and over, mix
it up. Once a person rides a
bike for five miles you must
increase the resistance, the
time or the distance in or-
der to ensure continued suc-
cess.
These five fitness tips
should definitely get you off
on the right foot. Remember
that your long and short-
term success will be guar-,
anteed by the consistent
incorporation of resistance
training, better eating hab-
its and increased activity.
Keep it safe, intense and
simple.
Geoff Kalmbach is a fit-
ness expert that people turn


cause wearing seat belts is
the right thing to do. On my
honor, I so pledge."
Vehicle accidents rep-
resent the second-leading
cause of firefighter deaths
each year, accounting for
25 percent of the 100 or so
firefighters killed in the line
of duty each year, according
to the National Fire Protec-
tion Association. A third
of those fatalities involved
firefighters who were not
wearing their seatbelts. In
achieving 100-percent par-
ticipation, both SWFD Staff
and the South Walton Pro-
fessional Firefighters Asso-
ciation have demonstrated

sions, but Johnstone added
some nice banjo touches to
"Honky Cat."
The entire band showed
no signs of lifelessness. Bass-
ist Robert Birch and percus-
sionist John Mahon kept the
rhythm lively throughout,
while keyboard player Guy
Babylon effectively repro-
duced the orchestral parts
of some of John's ballads.
The concert also ben-
efited from the inclusion of
two unexpected album cuts,
"Holiday Inn" and "All the
Girls Love Alice."
After the rousing one-two
punch of "Crocodile Rock"
and "Saturday Night's Al-
right for Fighting," John,
decked out in a black jacket
exploding with music notes
and clefs, autographed CDs,
tour programs, and T-shirts
for fans along the front row.
He returned for an encore of
"Don't Let the Sun Go Down
on Me" and the poignant
'Your Song," the latter dedi-
cated to everyone in atten-
dance.
He didn't do handstands
on the piano, and his attire
seemed downright conserva-
tive compared to his 1970s
commercial peak. But at 61,
John proved he could still
connect with audiences.

board, but we seem to have
hit upon a good solution to
a problem needing to be
solved in a timely manner."
In other business, the
board approved new rack
cards, which will be printed
by the county and distrib-
uted through the Tourist
Development Council to
bed tax collectors to educate
the public about .the,.fragil,
ity and rarity of the coastal
dune lakes.
Public information of-
fice Chris Mitchell told the
board the county's Web site
is being revamped and in-
formation about the coastal
dune lakes will be an addi-
tion to information found
there.
"Right now the lakes are
doing pretty good, but we
need to ensure long term
health for all of them," Nel-
son concluded.

The next meeting will be
May 22 but the group and
all interested parties plan to
tour a number of the lakes
tentatively scheduled for
May 29.

Autechre, "Quaristice"
(Warp) - Weird but moving
electronic music could serve
as the soundtrack for our
disjointed lives. With each
listen, the album comes
closer to masterpiece status,
but it's still impossible to
get to the bottom of it.
The Black Crowes, "War-
paint" (SilverArrow) - Strong
comeback effort for brothers
Chris and Rich Robinson
and boasts a stronger south-
ern rock influence than the
band's radio-friendly hits of
the '90s.
Bon Iver, "For Emma,
Forever Ago" (Jagjaguwar)
- Justin Vernon's painstak-
ingly recorded debut serves
up plenty of moody and in-
trospective observations
about loss and regret, but
avoids the whining that
plagues so many oh-so-
sensitive indie artists. The

STATE OF FLORIDA
DEPARTMENT OF
ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION
NOTICE OF INTENT TO ISSUE
PERMIT
(FLA010245-008-DWI1P/RA)

The Department of Environmental
Protection gives notice of its intent to
issue a substantial permit revision for
the City of Freeport wastewater treat-
ment facility (WWTF) to substantially
modify the wastewater treatment
plant and to construct and operate a
public access reuse system. The ap-
plicant proposes to designate a new
Part III public access reuse general
service area with the permitted ca-
pacity of 0.60 MGD annual average
daily flow. The initial areas for reuse
water distribution will be Hammock
Bay development area (43 acres with
a capacity of 0.334 MGD), Freeport


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

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

In addition to requesting an ad-
ministrative hearing, any petitioner
may elect to pursue mediation. The
election may be accomplished by fil-
ing with the Department a mediation
agreement with all parties to the pro-
ceeding (i.e., the applicant, the De-
partment, and any person who has
filed a timely and sufficient petition
for a hearing). The agreement must
contain all the information required
by Rule 28-106.404, Florida Admin-
istrative Code. The agreement must
be received by the clerk in the Office
of General Counsel of the Depart-
ment at 3900 Commonwealth Bou-
levard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee,
Florida 32399-3000, within ten days


after the deadline for filing a petition,
as set forth above. Choosing media-
tion will not adversely affect the right
to a hearing if mediation does not re-
sult in a settlement.
As provided in Section 120.573,
Florida Statutes, the timely agree-
ment of all parties to mediate will toll
the time limitations imposed by Sec-
tions 120.569 and 120.57, Florida
Statutes, for holding an administra-
tive hearing and issuing a final order.
Unless otherwise agreed by the par-
ties, the mediation must be conclud-
ed within sixty days of the execution
of the agreement. If mediation results
in settlement of the administrative
dispute, the Department must enter
a final order incorporating the agree-
ment of the parties. Persons seeking
to protect their substantial interests
that would be affected by such a
modified final decision must file their
petitions within fourteen days of re-
ceipt of this notice, or they shall be
deemed to have waived their right to
a proceeding under Sections 120.569
and 120.57, Florida Statutes. If me-
diation terminates without settlement
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.

being size. The plans will have widths and depths that can fit on a lot that is
50' wide by 120' long, with 71/2' side setbacks, 20' front setbacks, and 15'
rear setbacks. Additionally, the width will allow for a 10-foot driveway (can be
in the setbacks) to access the rear of the home, and the rear of the home will
have room for parking two average-size cars. Each plan will have a rear en-
trance, not from a bedroom, which will provide direct access to a rear parking
area or deck.
To assure that the homes can be resold to households within 140% of AMI
(Area Median Income), the builder will not be allowed to contract with any
Buyer to build anything other than the'three floor plans and options presented
in the Proposal and accepted by WCWFHC.
The Builder will be required to build a model home, to be used as offices
and as a model of a typical home. The Builder may contribute to the market-
ing effort and will receive points based on the extent of involvement in the
marketing effort.
2.2 WORK SCHEDULE
The Builder will begin entering into Construction Contracts with buyers
when the development of lots is completed and the. buyers are qualified.
WCWFHC guarantees no starting date or any number of buyers, but provides
the following information so that the Builder may estimate the starting date
and the rate and timing of Construction Contracts with buyers:
1. After selection of the Builder, WCWFHC is required to provide under-
writing information concerning the Builder for the CWHIP grant.
2. The underwriting process is estimated to take 4 to 6 weeks, after the
Builder is selected by WCWFHC.
3. After the underwriting is completed, WCWFHC will begin development
of the lots (construction of the infrastructure). This is estimated to take 6 to 9
months.
4. During the period that the lots are being developed, WCWFHC will
solicit and accept reservation agreements from prospective buyers.
5. After lots are ready for house construction, Builder will proceed expedi-
tiously with Construction Contracts and construction of homes.
2.3 ALTERNATE OR ADDITIONAL PROPOSAL.
Although not required, any Builder may add a proposal to completely
develop Wolf Creek, pursuant to the terms of the Contract to Develop. The
Contract to Develop contains the requirements if the Builder chooses to add
a proposal to develop and, if requested by the Builder, will be added to the
Request Package, Generally, the proposal to develop would be a proposal
by the Builder to, in addition to providing turn-key houses, totally develop
Phase One, including financing, constructing infrastructure, marketing, and
all other activities involved in development. The portion of the CWHIP grant
to be applied to each closing will be available as provided in the Contract to
Develop.

dinance as a model. He said
the Walton County draft
was "very weak" when it
came to taking 'care of ani-
mals. Bard added that teth-
ering is inhumane for dogs
as well as children and cited
statistics on children killed
by dog chains. He told the
BCC that the Latin defini-
tion of "dog" was incorrect
and brought up the specific
needs and public safety is-
sues surrounding "wolf
dogs" in the county.
Bard also said the pet
dealer portion of the docu-
ment did not adequately ad-
dress puppy mills.
Laurie Hood from the


Alaqua Animal Refuge said
there were "a lot of things
people weren't happy with
in this ordinance." She pro-
posed establishing a commit-
tee of citizens to scrutinize
the draft and volunteered
her services to establish a
spay and neuter program.
"There are a lot of funds
available," said Hood.
Meadows was amenable
to most of these sugges-
tions and motioned to ap-
point a committee to further
explore the draft. County
administrator Ronnie Bell
recommended setting a
timeline for the committee

changes needed to be made

SIGNS FROM 1-C


Rauschkolb noted. "Right
now we have to reach some
consensus in this room
about the signs. The biggest
problem we had with the
big blue signs was that they
were big, blue and ugly. We
had no problem with the
info on them."
Rauschkolb said at the
moment he knew of no plan
for new TDC signs. "What
I'm suggesting is the long
term Timpoochee Trail plan
has different phases and the
community can use them as
a template so the signs all


look alike."
"We need to see a proto-
type," Bagby emphasized.
"We want an integrated
plan with mile markers."

The CBA delegation not-
ed they have the funding for
their signs and they need to
get going soon as the grant
money will go away if prog-
ress is not made. There are
also some funding possibili-
ties available by virtue of
30A being named as a scenic
corridor, but no details have
been investigated.

South Walton Fire District chief talks safety


By LEAH STRATMANN
It was a small but atten-
tive crowd who gathered
last week for South Walton
Community Council forum
featuring South Walton
Fire District (SWFD) chief
Rick Talbert. Talbert is a
third-generation firefighter
who has been on the job in
south Walton for just under
a year.
"I'm very proud and hap-
py to be here. It's been al-
most a year since I took this
job and my wife and I love it
here," Talbert said.
Talbert detailed the ser-
vices of the SWFD, explain-
ing that more than 120 men
and women in the district
were dedicated to proving
prompt, competent and car-
ing response in a time of
need. "Fire departments are

the South Walton Fire Dis-
trict was the speaker at last
week's South Walton Com-
munity Council forum.


not an all hazard agency,"
he noted.
SWFD has an annual
budget of $12 million, with
five stations, a communica-
tions center, and lifeguards.
The stations are located
in Inlet Beach, in Water-
Color on CR-395, in Mack
Bayou, Miramar Beach, and
the headquarters located
on CR-393 in Santa Rosa
Beach. The department re-
sponded to 4527 emergen-
cies in 2007. "We have all
the vehicles to fit the mis-
sion," he said, "and all the
fire trucks have at least one
paramedic on it."
Addressing home fire
safety, Talbert said smoke
alarms are the most reli-
able early warning sys-
tem, but to be effective the
alarms should be tested
once a month and the bat-
teries replaced annually. He
suggested placing an alarm
outside of each bedroom and
cautioned, "Never borrow
the battery from the smoke
detector and plan your es-
cape from a fire, working
out the plan in advance."
Household chemicals can
pose a potential fire or chem- -
ical burn hazard, especially
when mixed. He suggested
reading the directions and
following the precautions
printed on bottles and cans.
Keeping flammable liquids
in proper containers is also
a simple way to prevent ac-
cidental fires.


Homeowners should also
use only UL-approved and
tested extension cords and
surge protectors, and fire-
places should be inspected
annually. He suggested ev-
ery home have a disaster
supply kit handy that in-
cludes medications, first aid
supply, important papers,
emergency cash, flashlights,
batteries, portable weather
radio, and food, water and
clothing for three to seven
days for each person in the
house.
To prevent fires outside
the home he said homes
could be made "fire wise" by
creating a 30-foot buffer be-
tween the house and dense
vegetation. "Make sure the
fencing, if any, is in good con-
dition. Remove dead or over-
hanging branches around
the house, keep tree limbs
pruned six to 10 feet off the


ground, and regularly prune
shrubs and brushes. Addi-
tionally, regularly mowing
the lawn and clearing it of
tall dry grass and keeping
firewood well away from the
house lessens the chances of
feeding an outdoor fire."
Talbert said people could
help the fire department do
their jobs 'by making sure
firefighters have access, es-
pecially in condominiums.
He said those living in gated
communities need to make
sure the management ,has
provided gate codes to emer-
gency personnel and peo-
