Here's your sign!


By ALICIA LEONARD
They are popping up more
than an afternoon thunder
storm this time of year and
they will probably just get
worse according to Kevin
Hargett, Walton County
code enforcement manager,
"We haven't had too many
complaints yet, but they do
seem to progress as the elec-
tion season progresses," said
Hargett about election signs
issues.
The main point on elec-
tion signage is the difference


between private and public
property or what is termed
right-of-way. "Along county
roads, right of way can be
up to 50 to 100 feet off the
shoulder of the pavement,"
according, to Hargett and
there is a reason why. "It's
not just about aesthetics,
it's about safety. The right-
of-way is to be kept clear be-
cause those are emergency
areas and if someone has an
emergency or has to pull off
the side of the road sudden-
ly these can make the situa-


ALL OF THESE signs appear to be placed on the right of
way, out of compliance with state FDOT sign regulations.

THESE TWO LARGE SIGNS are clearly on fenced-in
private property and are considered legal under the law.

tion more dangerous."
How does code enforce-
ment deal with sign com-
plaints? "First, we usually
contact the candidate and let
them know there has been a
complaint and usually that
is enough to fix the situa-
tion. We ask them to move
their-signs so that they butt
up against private property
and don't cause a safety is-
sue," explained Hargett.
Pat Blackshear, director
of planning and develop-
ment services for Walton
County agrees that most
candidates are good at self-
enforcement and will will-
ingly move signs they were
not aware were code viola-
tiqn. "I think everyone is
making the effort to place
them properly," said Black-
shear.
Blackshear's office gives
all candidate a packet of
info on proper placement
.through the Supervisors of
Elections office. The miemo
states that although the
code development office re-
alizes that signs are impor-
tant to campaigns, signs
may not be placed in the
right-of-way of any road or
construction so as to create
a hazard. -.
They must also be placed
on private property accord-
ing to Hargett. "Code 7.02.02
states that all signage, in-
cluding temporary election
signs, must be placed on pri-
vate property."

of Transportation (FDOT)

Brothers perish


in apparent


boating mishap

at Alaqua Creek


Walton County authori-
ties, along with U.S. Coast
Guard and state Fish and
Wildlife Commission (FWC)
investigators, have found
the bodies of two brothers,
missing since Sunday eve-
ning.
A spokesman for the FWC
said that Lu.. n Alford, 17,
and Liicas Alford, 21, ;'ad
gone to the Alaqua Creek
Boat Ramp Sunday after-
noon in a boat, for a day of.
fishing. The brothers appar-
ently traveled from the Port-
land area to the south side
of Choctawhatchee Bay.
According to Capt. Ed-
die Ferris of Walton County
Sheriffs Office (WCSO),
the brothers' family called
authorities when they had
not returned home at 9:41
p.m. Sunday, night. Ferris'
said a search was initiated
at 10 p.m. The WCSO beach
unit took part. 'as did heli-
copter and boat search urnits
of FWC and the U.S. Coast
Guard.
The FWC spokesman re-


ported that the Alfords' boat
was located, full of water
but not sunk, on the north
side of the bay near Alaqua
Creek. Life jackets and
other personal items were
found later. On Monday,
authorities announced they
had found the body of Logan
Alford, at around noon some
1,000 feet from the boat. The
body of Lucas was recovered
at around 6:30 p.m. the
same day. It was suggested
by search investigators that
the Alfords may have been
caught by one of the scat-
tered thunderstorms that
passed through the area on
Sunday afternoon and eve-
ning, and that their 14-foot
boat may possibly have cap-
sized.
Logani would have been a
senior, and was a member
of the Walton High School
Football team. Lucas was
a graduate of Walton High
School, and had recently be-
come a father. The brothers
and their family are from
the DeFuniak Springs .area
of Walton County.

BCC appoints Animal Control advisory committee


By ANNMcQUEEN
The Walton County
Board of Commissioners
has appointed a 10-member
advisory committee to of-
fer recommendations to the
county's Animal Control Or-
dinance.
The committee, which
was approved on May 13, in-
cludes: Bill Bard, Vicki Ber-
nard, Ella Caro, Jennifer
Cox, Kasey Cuchens, -Lori
Eckert, Vicki Gatliff, Laurie
Hood, Lois LaSeur and Ann
McQueen.
Of these ten people, two
live outside the county.
Bernard lives in Okaloosa
County but operates Three


Dog Framing in south Wal-
ton. LaSeur lives :in Bay
County and works for the
Walton County Planning
Department.
Five members repre-
sent Commissioner Cindy
Meadows' District 5: Bard,
Caro, Eckert, Gatliff, and
McQueen. Of these people,
two are currently serving
as officers of the South Wal-
ton Community Council,
an environmental advocacy
organization. Bard is listed
as the current director of
growth management of the
SWCC, and Caro is serving
as its president, according
to its Web site.


Two members of the
committee represent Co-
mander's District 4: Hood
and Cuchens. Hood owns
and operates Alaqua Ani-
mal Refuge. Cox represents
Commissioner Pridgen's
District 2.
The advisory committee
does not include represen-
tatives from Commissioner
Brannon's District 1 or Com-
missioner Jones' District 3.
At the May 13 BCC meet-
ing, Comander asked, if
rules are in place regarding
non-resident members serv-
ing county appointments.
Ken Little, county Citizen
Services director,. said he


did not know of any rules
against out of county ap-
pointments but stated that
board-appointed committees
chartered under the land
development code are re-
quired to be Walton County
residents. At that meeting,
Commissioner Meadows
stated that all the people on
the, list are located through-
out the county.
The mission of the com-
mittee is to improve the
safety and welfare of ani-
mals with the ordinance
through six topics: a feral
cat program; a possible
mandatory spay/neuter pro-
gram; standards of care for


sheltering animals; cruelty
cases; puppy mills; and dan-
gerous animals.
At its June 18 meeting,
the advisory committee dis-
cussed feral cats. Its next
meeting is scheduled for
Wednesday, July 9 at 4:30
p.m. at the Tourist Develop-
ment Council at 25777 U.S.
Highway 331, at its inter-
section with U.S. Highway
98. The next topic of discus-
sion is a possible mandatory
spay/neuter program.

ing, check the county Web

Walton County Amateur

Radio "Field Day"


The Walton County Ama-
teur Radio Club (WCARC)
is going to participate in an
amateur radio event called
Field Day. They will be op-
erating from the Emergency
Operating Center (EOC)
on South Davis Lane from
noon Saturday, June 28, un-
til noon, Sunday June 29.
Field Day is the most
popular on-the-air operat-
ing event in amateur radio.
On the fourth full weekend
in June, tens of thousands


of amateur radio operators
gather for a public demon-
stration of service. Field Day
is part educational event,
part operating event, part
public relations event-and
all about fun.
Field Day is the time in
which they bring amateur
radio to Main Street USA.
By setting up in parking
lots, malls, Emergency Op-
erations Center, parks, and
even at home, amateur radio
operators learn skills that
allow them to better serve


their communities. Setting
up in these public venues
gives added public relations
value-their friends and
neighbors can see and ex-
perience the fun and public
service capability that their
"ham radio" neighbors bring
to the community.
All public officials and
those interested in how
amateur radio operates are
welcome to come by the EOC
and observe and/or partici-
pate in this event.

to make sure he has the cor-

fore picking up signs. "I call
in and say 'give me the next

if it's 50 or 100 feet from the
center line."
What happens to the
wayward or misplaced sign?
"We take them to the main-

there. Sometime the can-

them up and sometimes
they don't," he said with a
slight chuckle.
DeFuniak Springs City
Marshal Mike Adkinson, a
candidate for sheriff, paid
the Herald a visit on the day


this article was written and
talked about the plethora
of signage that has popped
up to support his campaign.
"We are working diligently
to place them on private
property and not in right-of-
ways," he said.
Candidate Robert Nelson
says it's tough, but thinks
it can be done. "I really
want to prove a point that
proper sign placement can
be achieved. I think where
we run into trouble is the
candidates might be aware
and taking every precaution
but sometimes supporters
who place signs might not
be aware of the codes and
that's when they start pop-
ping up in places they might
not belong."

THE PIG JUST WONDERED why he had to "kiss the human." Walton Middle School
Youth For Christ Club sponsored its "Kiss The Pig" contest to raise money for fellow student
Katie Cosson. Teachers, staff and administration participated and made donations, which
resulted in a total of more than $500. Assistant Principal Vivian Powell received the most
donations and was the "winner." After washing the pig's snout, brushing its teeth and ap-
plying lipstick, Vivian performed her porcine duty on May 22 in front of the students.

2008. Democrats will have
no chance to vote in those
races.
Supervisor of Elections
Bobby Beasley reminds
those Democrats who want
to vote in the primary that
the time to change party af-
filiations is drawing near.
"Since Florida went to a
closed primary system, the
last date to change over par-
ty affiliation to vote or regis-
ter to vote in the Republican
races will be July 28. They
can always switch back over
after the race if they like,"
said Beasley.
That may play a part in
the upcoming sheriffs race.
With six Republican candi-
dates vying over the much-
publicized office, the swing
vote could make a difference
in the primary and as to who
goes onto face the lone Dem-
ocratic challenger, Danny
H. Griffith, in the Novem-
ber election. Those qualify-
ing for the sheriff race are
Michael A. Adkinson Jr.,

Macon and Dennis Wise.
The race for superinten-

cided at the primary as well.
Incumbent Carlene Ander-
son will face off against an-
other Republican, Trisha P.
Hutchison.
The school board races
are open to everyone to vote
and maybe decided at the
primary according to the
number of votes for each
candidate. Robert Nelson
and Tim Yandell both face
incumbent Mildred T. Wilk-
erson in District 1. Marsha
S. Winegarner will attempt
to unseat incumbent Mark
D. Davis in District 4. If any
one candidate gets more
than' 50 percent of the vote
in these nonpartisan races,
they will be declared the
winner. If not, in the case of
a three-way race with none
gathering 50 percent of the
vote, the top two vote-get-
ters will move onto the bal-
lot at the general election.

The Rest



of the Story

By RON KELLEY

Pain at the pumps are obviously on everybody's mind.
Following last week's editorial, Congressman Jeff Miller's
weekly newsletter focused on his thoughts about oil explo-
ration. Though Miller did not refer to the timeframe need-
ed to turn crude oil into gasoline at the pump or the need
to fully fund and support alternative transportation fuel
sources, he did make an excellent point regarding the fact
that the U.S. has increased its dependence on foreign oil by
seven percent last year.
That's a lot of zeros and dollar-signs.
In his latest address to the people, Rep. Miller wrote:
"This week I'd like to debunk some of the myths brought
up in the energy debate across the nation and leave you
with the facts.
Fact No. 1- The Bureau of Land Management (BLM)
administers the 700 million acres of federally owned sub-
surface mineral estate, only six percent of which has been
leased for oil and gas exploration and development.
Fact No. 2- Only three percent of the United States' 1.76
billion-acre outer continental shelf (OCS) is leased for oil
and gas exploration and development.
Fact No. 3- Of the more than seven billion barrels of oil
pumped offshore in the past 25 years, 0.001 percent that
is one-thousandth of one percent has been spilled.
Fact No. 4- The mean estimate of technically recoverable
oil in ANWR is 10.4 billion barrels all of which is now eco-
nomically recoverable. That's more than twice the proven
oil reserves in all of Texas. That's almost half of the total
U.S. proven reserve of 21 billion barrels. That represents a
possible 50-percent increase in total U.S. proven reserves.
Fact No. 5- Drilling of oil and natural gas exploratory
wells increased by 98 percent from 2000 to 2007. Yet, crude
oil production decreased 12.4 percent.
Fact No. 6- One million barrels of oil produce 27 million
gallons of gasoline and diesel fuel.
Fact No. 7- United States expanded its dependence on for-
eign members of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting
Countries (OPEC) by a full seven percent in 2007 alone.
Fact No. 8- Total American energy resources off-limits:
(leasing prohibited) Natural Gas: 175.28 trillion cubic feet,
Oil: 1.127 trillion barrels. Federal revenue generated if
Congress unlocked off-limits energy resources: $60 tril-
lion.
Fact No. 9- Wind-generated electricity increased by 45
percent between 2005 and 2006 and by 21 percent between
2006 and 2007, more than any other renewable source of
generation in both years.
Fact No. 10- The Democrats are blocking domestic en-
ergy exploration legislation from being voted upon in the
House.
Rep. Miller's facts are mostly understandable, though
it's difficult to imagine just how much energy is contained
in 175.28 trillion cubic feet of gas or the cost to get it to our
propane tanks.
Here are still more facts for your consideration from the
Association For The Study of Peak Oil & Gas USA.
America imports more than 60 percent of its total oil
consumption and about half of that goes for gasoline. And
while only about 20 percent of U.S. oil imports comes di-
rectly from Persian Gulf members of OPEC, the Gulf effec-
tively sets prices because it produces the lowest-priced oil
and has 90 percent of the world's extra capacity.
Having the lowest gasoline prices in the industrialized
world would boost auto sales, tourism and suburban con-
struction. Lower diesel prices would reduce trucking costs
and help businesses along the entire supply chain. "If you
let the price of oil go artificially high, it will hurt our econo-
my," said Commerce Secretary Don Evans, a former Texas
oil executive.
On April'16, 2007, the UAE's Mohamed Al Hamli stated
that OPEC remains fully committed to providing a reliable
oil supply for the consumer nations. "There, should be no
doubt that OPEC members are fully committed to ensure
regular supplies to consumers and maintain market stabil-
ity," said Mohamed Al Hamli, who also serves as UAE's
energy minister.
OPEC's commitment comes with conditions. Al Hamli
emphasized the organization's view that efforts by the Or-
ganisation for Economic Co-Operation and Development
(OECD) member nations to reduce their import dependen-
cies through subsidies for alternative fuels "discriminate"
against oil, thus undermining future OPEC investment in
capacity expansion. OPEC's worry about sustained oil de-
mand may be seen as an ordinary business concern; it may
also be seen as blackmail consume oil or suffer the con-
sequences of future shortages.
Congressman Miller and I.agree that we must turn away
from foreign oil. He appears to favor domestic drilling
as a solution, while I favor non-petroleum alternatives to


first reduce and then curb our dependence on oil altogeth-
er. Either way, the lines are drawn and there should be
no turning back. As we approach the celebration of Amer-
ica's Independence Day, let us declare our independence
from foreign oil and those who would profit by our national
misery. Let us demand the liberty on which our nation is

Editor:
Every day we hear about heroes who contributed to the
good of mankind, have achieved an unusual career, made
a lot of money or died trying to save another person. We
applaud men and women who achieve high standards of ex-
cellence in school, university or in their career. They shape
teenagers' thoughts and actions. Teens dress, talk and try
to move or imitate the people who they look up to.
The littler persons hardly ever are noticed for their
achievements. Their families are sometimes ignorant of
the sacrifices their moms and dads make in order for their
children to have all the privileges that life has to offer or
money can buy.
A few of us still remember the sacrifices a group of peo-
ple made beginning in the late 1930s and up until 1945
during World War II. As far as we, their descendants, have
been able to determine, neither Walton County, the state of
Florida nor the U.S. government ever have recognized their
sacrifices and the contributions these people made to our
society as we know it today.
It is our intention to rectify this error and to do all we can
to make sure that our country and state are made aware
of what our mothers, fathers, grandparents, aunts, uncles,
brothers and sisters did to make our lives the way they are
today.
We acknowledge ,the contributiq'as "'f .Eglin. Air F6rce
Base to our communities and the freedom we as United
States citizens enjoy. But had it not been for the sacrifices
of our families, those contributions never would have been
possible.
We want to make everyone aware of what these people
had to give up or how their property and their lives liter-
ally were taken away from them with very little compensa-
tion. They were told to vacate their homes, property, farms,
communities, schools, churches, families, etc. in 30 days or
else they would be removed and their homes bulldozed and
burned. They were not helped to relocate and received very
little money toward relocation. Some were widows or wid-
owers with small children.
As there. were no livestock laws at the time, their live-
stock were scattered in the woods around their property,
crops were left in the fields, children still were in school
and adults had jobs but there was no sympathy for any-
one.
This was a great injustice that needs an apology. The
people who made these sacrifices and their contributions
to the war effort need to be recognized. Many of the young
men from these families already had been drafted and were
serving in the war arena. I know of several who lost their
lives or limbs or were prisoners of war.
If you or anyone you know is a survivor of that era, please
let them know we have organized a group to tell their sto-
ries and we would have them recognized. Please join us for
the completion of this worthwhile project. Our next sched-
uled meeting is 10 a.m. on June 26. Meeting will be at 162
S. 11th Street. Please contact us at (850) 548-5353, (850)
892-4532 or (850) 897-2145 for additional information. We
welcome your participation and input.

Editor:
During the Democratic National Convention in 2004, we
watched and listened to all we possibly could of those of-
fered for viewing. We feel a "valid opinion" cannot be truly
reached without hearing all sides of the story. While my
husband, and I were listening to the keynote speaker for
the convention on television, a young Senator from Illinois,
I turned to my husband and asked him, "Who is this young
man, and where have they been hiding him, because some-
day, he is really going to'go places!'" *
At that time, little did I ever imagine the Democrats
(and others) would sweep him up upon sort of a pedestal ~
which has hot yet a strong base, nor roots; but more so as a
"runaway-~train" going downhill. Barack Obama. is charis-
matic, smart, young, energetic, and hopeful...of being elect-
ed president of the United States this year in November.
I compare his overwhelming popularity among the vot-
ers of all parties to .the breathless rush of emotion just
about every person has experienced in their lives ~ when
the "crush" of "first love" or "new love" obsesses and over-
comes them.
We all know of some persons who have gone on and had
a happy, enduring, and successful marriage with their first
love, in spite of their parents and sometimes their friends
and acquaintances, begging them to wait, get to know one
another better, get to date others, and use caution in taking
that big step of lifelong commitment.
On the other hand, we all know of so many more who
, did not wait -and soon suffered the disappointmennt of"
their hasty and wrong decision.
Barack Obama may be the perfect candidate for presi-
dent, if indeed, there is such a person. However, he has
only served one term in the Senate before embarking on the
presidential "run for the roses." This present Senate term
does not count for any of the candidates, because during
all this time, not one of them has had their mind on the
matters of the Senate. They have all been thinking about
the numbers, primaries, delegates and all the trappings of
securing their party's nomination for the office of president.
He may have good ideas, but he does not have enough expe-
rience yet.
Let us all encourage Barack Obama to wait, learn all he
possibly can, hone his skills, and be ready to bring about
those items he feels he can "change" ... in 2012.
Anything before then, he will be selling himself short, and
the United States, too, if he goes into the Oval Office before
he is ready. Waiting is not defeat; nor failure. It is an op-
portunity to better prepare himself for optimum effective-
ness as president of the United States.

Editor:
Your editorial (6/19/08) attitude on drillling in this coun-
try for our own oil is the same attitude that has prevailed
since Jimmy Carter was president and the result has been
totally predictable limited domestic supply and reliance
on imported oil.
In addition, there is something wrong with thinking that
does not allow creation of good American jobs using Ameri-
can labor with the U.S. dollar. Further, this thinking only
contributes to a larger deficit of payments for the U.S.A. by
sending our money to the Middle East and Hugo Chavez.
And finally, as a native Louisianian, I resent the attitude
of folks who willingly take other Gulf coast state's oil and
gas, but are unwilling to contribute to the common good by
exploiting its own resources.
You folks really need to get over it and become part of
the solution and not part of the problem.

Transportation planning or-



ganization to stay two-county


By DOTTY NIST
Members of the Oka-
loosa-Walton Transporta-
tion Planning Organization
(TPO) voted overwhelming-
ly against merging the orga-
nization into a four-Florida-
county planning body. The
decision was made on June
19 at the TPO's regular
meeting.
"I think the bigger you,
get the furthest you are from
the people...I'm not in favor
of the merger at all," said
Valparaiso City Council-
man Thomas Miller, one of
the members voting against
the change.
Consisting of 19 voting
members, all county com-
missioners and city council
members and commission-
ers in Okaloosa and Wal-
ton counties, the TPO sets
priorities and makes rec-
ommendations for the use
of state and federal trans-
portation dollars within the
urbanized areas of the two-
county area. This was the
second time the TPO had
been asked to consider such
a merger.
When the 2000 census
showed that the defined ur-
banized area of Fort Waltori
Beach had extended beyond
the Okaloosa County line. to
include the Navarre area
in Santa Rosa County, the
state Department of Trans-
portation (DOT) identified a
need for formal coordination
between the transportation
planning organizations for
those areas.


The Okaloosa-Walton
TPO was presented with the
two options of merging with
the transportation planning
organization for the area
to the east, which included
Santa Rosa County and Es-
cambia County, or estab-
lishing a formal mechanism
for coordination with that
organization for planning
purposes.
The TPO had opted to do
the latter, and another or-
ganization, the Northwest
Florida Regional TPO, was
formed for those purposes.
Some Okaloosa-Walton TPO
members also serve on the
regional TPO, which meets
approximately four times a
year.
Recently DOT again
asked the TPO to consider
merging with the 18-mem-
ber Florida-Alabama TPO,
which now includes urban-
ized areas in Santa Rosa
County, Escambia County
and Baldwin County, AL.
Advantages pointed out
about a merger included a
regional emphasis on trans-
portation planning and the
elimination of four meet-
ings a year, since the North-
west Florida Regional TPO
would not longer be needed
and could be eliminated.
The Okaloosa-Walton TPO
meets approximately six
times a year.
Among the disadvan-
tages noted was that maxi-
mum membership in the
combined TPO would be 19
members, and 18 current


members from the two TPOs
would lose their seats. These
would likely be representa-
tives of the smaller munici-
palities, since one-third of
the membership would have
to be county commissioners.
TPO member/Walton
County District 4 Commis-
sioner Sara Comander had
commented at a May TPO
workshop that, with a merg-
er, as a county commission-
er on the TPO she would be
responsible for going to the
cities to gauge what their
transportation needs would
be.
TPO Chairman Bill Rob-
erts commented that what
would be "taken away" with
a merger would be "the
voice" of municipalities.
Undetermined was where
meetings would be held with,
a merger, but it was certain
that longer driving distances
would be involved for some.
Another disadvantage
pointed out was that there
would be less concern about
projects in locations far
away from one's home area.
There was also concern
about merging with the
Florida-Alabama TPO be-
cause it is considered likely
to be designated a "non-
attainment area" by the
EPA, based on new ozone
air quality standards. More
stringent project justifica-
tion requirements would
possibly result for Okaloosa
and Walton counties in the
event of a merger.
.On behalf of TPO staff,


Chamber seeks board nominations


The Walton Area Cham-
ber of Commerce nominating
committee has announced
its call for candidates for
the 2008-2009 board of di-
rectors. Any Chamber mem-
ber in good standing, who
holds a genuine interest in
serving on the board of di-
rectors, should submit their
name for consideration to


Dawn Moliterno at dawn@
waltonareachamber.com.
Candidate names may also
be submitted in writing, at
either Chamber office, in
Santa Rosa Beach or De-
Funiak Springs.
All names for consider-
ation will be presented to
the nomination committee
for their review and final


recommendation to the cur-
rent board of directors. All
submissions must be- sub-
mitted in writing no later
than July 1, 2008.

For more information,
call (850) 267-083 or (850)
892-3191, or visit the Cham-
ber website at www.wal-
tonareachamber.com.


Nick Nickoloff of TPO ad-
ministration recommended
against merging the two or-
ganizations at this time. He
noted that the recommenda-
tion is to table consideration
of a merger until results
are obtained from the 2010
census 'and regarding the
ramifications of the non-
attainment air quality des-
ignation. The latter would
take several years' time, he
explained. Nickoloff said
the TPO would be required
to consider the merger plan
again after the 2010 census.
Okaloosa County Com-
missioner John Jannazo
spoke in favor of the pro-
posed merger. "We have an
opportunity to make govern-
ment smaller," he said.
Jannazo called the plan
"an innovative way to go
after state dollars" and pur-
sue project funding more ef-
fectively through "a unified
voice across a four-county
region." He complained that
currently projects in the re-
gion continue to get a lower
funding priority.
He also advocated reduc-
ing the number of transpor-
tation planning meetings to
three or four a year through
the merger and making
them high priority, along
with reducing staff.
Chairman Roberts was
not of the opinion that meet-
ings could be streamlined to
three or four.a year "and re-
ally get the same impact."
Mary Esther City Coun-
cilman Ron Stearns said
that he had found during
his almost six years with the
TPO that "It gets frustrat-
ing but the planning process
is not the problem.
"It's the funding mecha-
nism," he said.
A motion by Miller to fore-
go the merger was approved
by all members present but
two, Jannazo and Destin
City Councilman Jim Wood,
resulting in no change from
the current, status.

Residents should guard against infection from freshwater amoeba


Health officials from the
Escambia, Okaloosa, Santa
Rosa and Walton County
Health Departments urge
residents to protect them-
selves against infection
caused by the freshwater
amoeba Naegleria (nigh-
GLEER-e-uh) fowleri. Last
year, three deaths in Or-
ange County Were attribut-
ed to the rare disease. There
have been 30 cases in Flori-
da since 1962. Although in-
fection is not common, most
infections are fatal and the


risk increases during hot
summer months.
Naegleria fowleri amoeba
is commonly found in warm
freshwater (lakes, rivers
and hot springs) and soil.
An infection develops when
the amoeba enter the body
through the nose and make
their way to the brain. This
infection causes a rare, but
life-threatening, disease
called primary amoebic
mening'iencephalitii (PAMI.
Symptoms of PAlM can start
as quickly as one to 14 days


after infection. Symptoms
include headache, fever,
nausea, vomiting and stiff
neck. After the start of
symptoms, the disease pro-
gresses rapidly and usually
causes death within three to
seven days.
Residents can protect
themselves and their chil-
dren with these precau-
tions:
Do, not swim in warm,
standing water, such as
lakes, ponds, poorly main-
tained swimming pools,


storm water holding areas
or in places that are posted
"No Swimming." Bacteria
and other harmful organ-
isms thrive in warm, stand-
ing water.
Hold the nose shut or use
nose clips when taking part
inr water-related activities
in bodies of warm freshwa-
ter such as lakes, rivers, or
hot spring
Avoid digging in pr stir-
ringgupT'hsedienient wvil'1
taking pairtin water-'relatd'
activities" in" shallow, \\i larm


freshwater areas.
Water testing suggests
that the amoeba are so com-
mon that recreational water
users should assume that
there is a low level of risk
when entering all warm
fresh water in southern
states. The CDC reports
that a low risk of Naegleria
infection is likely to always
exist with recreational use
of warm freshwater lakes,
rivers, and hot springs. The
low number of infections
makes it difficult to know


why some people have been
infected compared to the
millions of other people us-
ing the same or similar wa-
ters across the U.S.
This infection cannot be
spread from person to per-
son or contracted from a
properly maintained swim-
ming pool.
For more information,
call your county health de-
partment or visit www.cdc.
gov and search Naegleria
fowleri.

Health Matters


Vaccinations

By L.D. RAFEY, PA-C
Healthmark Rural Health
Clinic
Tour any American cem-
etery pre-dating the mid-
20th century and one will
observe numerous graves-
ites in which many family
members (and often entire
families) had been buried
within weeks or months of
one another.
It is difficult for those of
us who have lived in an envi-
ronment of readily available
antibiotics and vaccinations
to appreciate the advantag-
es of life in an era that has
been relatively free of the
certainty of death once asso-
ciated with the prevalence
of lethal infectious diseases.
I am old enough to recall
the gasping breath and dis-
tinctive sounds of whooping
cough; the iron lungs and
braces designed for chil-
dren (including several of
my classmates) paralyzed
by polio; and the devastat-


ing birth defects caused by
rubella.
While vaccination is still
considered the most notable
public health achievement
of the 20th century, it has
also enhanced the illusion
that such diseases are either
benign or have been entirely
eliminated and has contrib-
uted to a general compla-
cency and perhaps even
denial regarding the impor-
tance of continued support
for a national immunization
program. Having worked
overseas and in my former
career as a microbiologist, I
can attest to the terrible di-
lemma facing communities
in which vaccines have been
unavailable due to govern-
ment negligence or to cul-
tural misconceptions.
Myth: Diseases were go-
ing away prior to vaccina-
tions.
Fact: While public health
measures such as better liv-
ing conditions, hygiene, san-
itation and nutrition have
helped to reduce the inci-
dence of infections, diseas-


es prior to immunizations
programs, none of these
improvements can protect
a child from contracting a
specific infection following
exposure as reliable, as a
vaccine.
Myth: Vaccines don't
work.
Fact: If a decrease in in-
cidence of infection were
merely a normal fluctuation
coincidental to vaccinations,
then .the drop would be a
temporary condition. Co-
incidence does not explain
the persistence of success-
ful reduction decade on de-
cade, nor does it explain the
rapid increases in incidence
following a cutback in pro-
grams as has occurred in
the former Soviet Union in
1989.
Myth: My child doesn't
need to be immunized.
Fact: It only takes one
and despite the level of im-
munity in a community,
there is always the chance
that someone will contract
a disease such as pertussis
or hepatitis B here. It can
spread rapidly throughout
the community among un-
immunized children.
Myth: Breastfed babies


don't need vaccines.
Fact: While breastfeed-
ing is one of the most impor-
tant ways to provide protec-
tion from many infectious
agents, unlike the endur-
ing effects of immunization,
breastfeeding only protects
the infant during the course
of breastfeeding.
Myth: It's better to get the
disease than the vaccine.
Fact: The most common
side effects are mild fever
and soreness at the site of
injection. It is exceeding
rare to contract the perma-
nent complications and dis-
abilities that often accompa-
ny the naturally occurring
disease.
Myth: My child can get
the disease from the vac-
cine.
Fact: Vaccines are made
form killed or weakened
bacteria or viruses, benign
products of these germs, or
parts of these germs. None
of these can cause disease
except under the very rare
conditions. Moreover, many
parents .misinterpret com-
mon mild, temporary side
effects of the vaccination
procedures as side effects of


the immunization itself.
Myth: Vaccines can cause
SIDS (Sudden Infant Death
Syndrome).
Fact: Although the num-
ber of vaccines has risen
over the past few years,
there has been a significant
reduction in the occurrences
of SIDS following the "Back
to Sleep" campaign, in which
was recommend that infants
be placed on their backs pri-
or to sleep.
Myth: Vaccines can over-
whelm the immune system.
Fact: The immune system
is perfectly capable of recog-
nizing and effectively com-
bating thousands, if not mil-
lions, of different organisms.
Additionally, by stimulating
to produce immune factors,
the system is ,strengthened,
whereas exposure to natu-
ral infection will often pro-
duce secondary infections
that may induce a defective
immunity.
Myth: Autistic Spectrum .
disorder (ASD) is associated
with MMR vaccine.
Fact: While the incidence
of ASD cases have increased
since 1979, there has been
no sudden increase following


Members of the Walton
County Fire Rescue and
IAFF Local #4413 will join
fire departments across the
country by holding a "Fill
the Boot" drive to benefit
the Muscular Dystrophy As-
sociation (MDA).
Fire fighters will hit the
streets to fill their fire boots
with donations in support
of Jerry's kids. Fire fighters
will collect donations from


passersby at the intersec-
tion on U.S. 90 and U.S.
331 S. The event will take
place on Thursday, July 3,
between 12 and 6 p.m.
The fire fighters' goal is to
raise $5,000 for MDA during
this drive and another sched-
uled for Aug. 29. Walton
County Fire Rescue and Lo-
cal #4413 raised over $4,000
during their boot drive last
year for MDA. Leadership


in the department includes
Fire Chief Eddie Rivers,
Union President Jonathan
Davis, and MDA Coordina-
tor John Lawson. The Inter-
national Association of Fire
Fighters is a national spon-
sor of MDA, and thousands
of fire fighters nationwide
have been contributing to
MDA in various capacities
since 1954.
Funds raised by the fire
fighters give MDA, a vol-
untary health agency, the
means to continue provid-
ing direct services, research
and professional and public
health education to children
and adults with neuromus-
cular diseases in Northwest
Florida.
MDA medical services
are available in the area at
HealthSouth Rehabilitation
Hospital in Panama City
and at Tallahassee Neuro-
logicaf Clinic for those who
are diagnosed with any of
the 43 neuromuscular dis-
eases covered by MDA. The
annual MDA summer camp
is also funded by the fire
fighters' donations. This
year's camp took place at
Epworth by the Sea in St.
Simons Island, GA, provid-
ing a fun-filled week for in-
dividuals, ages 6 to 21, with
muscular dystrophy.

about the "Fill the Boot"
campaign or MDA, please

fice at (850) 681-6763, or

the introduction of MMR in
1988. Cases vaccinated pri-
or to 18 months of age had
similar ages at diagnosis as
did cases that had been vac-
cinated after 18 months of
age. MMR vaccine is first ad-
ministered at 12-15 months
of age. This also happens to
be the age when autism usu-
ally becomes apparent.
Antivaccinationists are
often portrayed as irratio-
nal and unscientific when
in fact they are quite ratio-
nally weighing the pros 'and
cons of inoculation. The pas-
sage of the 1986 National
Childhood Vaccine Injury
Act (NCVIA) spearheaded
by such protestations illus-
trates that legislators and
scientists continue to be
exceedingly concerned with
the issue of vaccine safety.'
No matter how great our
immunological power, in-
fectious diseases continue
to emerge and can be nei-
ther completely halted nor
assuaged and the pressure
for continued surveillance
and the need of newer, more
powerful anti-biologicals
will become an ever more
pressing issue.

Hammock Bay hosts grand opening of Freeport Regional Sports

Complex,Uptown Station fireworks move to Freeport


For the past several years
Jay Odom's Uptown Sta-
tion has hosted Fort Wal-
ton Beach's annual 4th July
firework celebration and
people from all over the Em-
erald Coast have made this
the highlight of their Inde-.
pendence Day.
This year Uptown Sta-
tion is in the midst of major
changes to both welcome
Ross Dress for Less and to
construct Uptown Station
Phase 2, the major new re-
tail and office development.


Rather than provide a small-
er and less spectacular dis-
play, Jay Odom has decided
to move the Independence
Day Firework Display to
Hammock Bay this year and
make it bigger and better
than ever.
Saturday, July 5 is also
the best opportunity to hold
the grand opening of the
Freeport Regional Sports
Complex at Hammock Bay.
The Freeport Regional
Sports Complex has been
created on 60 acres of Ham-


mock Bay donated to the city
of Freeport by Jay Odom
and features softball, t-ball,
baseball, soccer, tennis, vol-
leyball, shuffleboard and an
amazing kids playground.
The grand opening will
be on Saturday, July 5 and
will start with a parade
from Freeport to the Sports
Complex at Hammock Bay
organized by the Freeport
Fire .Department. At noon
there will be the official
opening by the mayor, Jay
Odom and civic leaders. The


afternoon will continue with
all the fun of the fair-kids
activities, demonstrations
of sports; carnival stalls by
Freeport traders, food ven-
dors and at 4:30 p.m. a con-
cert by the amazing Double
Feature Band.
From 7-7:30 p.m. (subject
to change-check hammock-
bayfreeport.com for details)
there will be a Warbird Fly-
over followed by an incred-
ible firework display, pre-
dicted to be the largest seen
on the Florida Panhandle.


The event will conclude at 9
a.m.
Bring lawn chairs and
blankets (no food, drink or
pets please) and make a
great day of the grand open-
ing of the Freeport Regional


Sports Complex at Ham-
mock Bay and the Indepen-
dence Day celebration.
For more details see ham-
mockbayfreeport.com, or up-

The Walton County Heri-
tage Museum will celebrate
its sixth anniversary on Fri-
day, the Fourth of July, with
extended hours from 1 until


6 p.m.
Visitors will have the rare
opportunity to walk through
the fully refurbished caboose
from 3 until 6 p.m.

Alabama man arrested trying to steal copper wire


On June 19, at around
1:03 a.m. a Walton County
Sheriffs deputy on patrol
spotted a suspicious vehicle
parked about 100 to 150
yards north of a business
located on U.S. 331 north.
The deputy spotted a male


subject kneeling, between
the vehicle and the fence of
the business. As the deputy
approached the vehicle the
subject came up to him and
started a conversation with
the deputy. He also told the
deputy that his back tire


was wobbling, so he pulled
over. While talking with the
subject identified as Henry
Levon Montgomery, 38, of
Evergreen AL., the deputy
noticed that the fence to
the business had been cut
and that several spools of


insulated wire werp at the
fence.
Also discovered in Mont-
gomery's vehicle was a pair
of bolt cutters, pliers, gloves
and a flashlight. Montgom-
ery reportedly admitted that
he had cut the fence and was

Farming Walton County



From the ground


up: the soil of


Walton County (


By BRUCE COLLIER

This is the first of a
planned series on farm-
ing in Walton County. The
series will cover various
kinds of farming and farm-
ing practices, a' historical
look at farming, its present
state and its possible fu-
ture in Walton County. The
series will also travel both
ways up and down along
the farming chain, from soil
to purchaser and consumer.
This first article will serve
'as a general introduction,
and then get down in the
dirt, or rather, the soil.
Bruce Ward is director
for Walton County Exten-
sion Services. Ward's office
seemed the logical starting
place for the series, and he
has a wide circle of acquain-
tance among Walton County
farmers, from backyard gar-
deners to larger farming op-
erations. According to Ward,
Walton County is mostly
family farming, or "family
farm businesses" as he calls
them. Size of farms ranges
from 10-15 to 3,000-acres.
Some farm properties are
owned and worked by mul-
tiple families, and farm in-
come is often only a portion
of a family's annual earn-
ings. Corn, cotton, peanuts,
wheat, soybeans, oats, and
Bahia grass (for livestock
grazing) are among the
main crops grown.
Ward cited corn, cotton,
peanuts and wheat as ex-
amples of "program crops"
under the federal Farm Bill.
The bill, passed by Congress
every few years, provides
structures under which pro-
gram crops are governed,
including subsidies to make
up shortfalls between target
prices and actual market
commodity prices. Program
or commodity crops are all
sold similarly to various
purchasers for storage and
eventual re-sale. Once pur-
chased, the farmer's role in
the process ends. The 2008
omnibus Farm Bill, formal-
ly known as the Food, Con-
servation and Energy Act of
2008, was recently passed
over President Bush's veto.
The $290 billion bill covers
a wide variety of subjects,
domestic and foreign.
As with all economic leg-
islation, farm bills attempt
to preserve some kind of or-
der in the marketplace, but
Ward notes that the -mar-
ketplace can be difficult to
quantify, and that commod-
ity "bubbles" (abnormally
high prices) occur. Such
bubbles, says Ward, "can't
last." Most business farms
in Walton County diversify,
with no "one-crop" opera-


tions.
In Ward's office is a
234-page paperback book,
supplemented by folded
maps, titled "Soil Survey of
Walton County, Florida."
The book was published by
the Soil Conservation Ser-
vice of the U.S. Department
of Agriculture, and was is-
sued in May of 1989. The
book is not updated yearly,
because, as Ward observes,
the soil has been consis-
tent for thousands of years.
Though originally mineral-
deficient, the soil of Walton
County has been*made pro-
ductive, at least for certain
crops.
Strictly speaking, there
is no one "soil" in Walton
County. The survey lists a
total of 73 soils in its "soil
series," ranging alphabeti-
cally from Albany to Ye-
massee, with Angie, Bibb,
Cowarts, Dirego, Duckston,
Fuquay, Kureb, Malbis,
Osier, Pactolus, Resota, and
Shubuta, among others, in
between. The survey lists
the soils, their qualities, the
amount of acreage they take
up in Walton County, and
their yield-per-acre poten-
tial for various crops, nota-
bly corn, peanuts, soybeans,
cotton, wheat, oats and Ba-
hia grass. The same survey
also assesses these soils for
"sanitary facilities" and rec-
reational development, two
subjects generally consid-
ered in tandem. Also cov-
ered are wildlife habitat,
building site development,
construction materials, wa-
ter management, chemical
and physical properties, and
engineering index proper-
ties of the soils.
For the record, the most
prevalent soil in Walton
County is Lakeland Sand,
constituting 150,581 (22
percent) out of a total of
668,770 acres in Walton
County. Peanuts and cot-
ton are the best bets for this
soil, judged by yields per
acre, but only with a "high
level of management." As
for recreational use camp-
ing, picnic, playgrounds,
paths and trails forget it,
though a golf fairway might
be sustainable.
The survey also contains
folding maps of the county,
allowing the reader to locate
a spot, identify the soil(s),
and make an educated as-
sessment as their agricul-
tural potential. Before
loaning it to the .Herald,-
Ward marked on it, "Return
to Walton County Extension
Office." The survey, would
seem to be, if not the "bible"
of Walton County farming,
at least a significant testa-
ment.

"Kids in the Kitchen" students


cook up learning experience


By JEFFREY POWELL

Summertime is upon us
and kids are out of school.
Although this is good news
to the youngsters, many
parents concern themselves
with their children having
all that free time. The Wal-
ton County Extension Office
in DeFuniak Springs may
have a partial solution to the
problem. The organization is
sponsoring four low-cost day
camps for middle school age
children. The first camp was
held June 17 19, and was
titled "Kids in the Kitchen."
"The objective of' the
course was to teach the
students nutrition, healthy


meal choices and basic cook-
ing skills," said Walton
County Extension Agent
Kendra Hughson. "The kids
also learned things they
never knew they were going
to learn such as etiquette,
comparison shopping and
meal planning."
Hughson, along with 4-H
Program Assistant Laura
Bowden, helped the stu-
dents prepare a morning
snack and lunch for each of
the three days of class. The
students also had physi-
cal activity breaks in which
they exercised with a work-
out video and played Wii
games. Although fun was
had by;,all, the students re-


alized the serious underpin-
ning of the camp.
"We learned a lot of dif-
ferent healthy food choices,"
said future eighth-grader
Katie Cosson. "I looked for-
ward to coming every day!"
Cosson's best friend of
four years, Shannon Good-
child shared her friends en-
thusiasm.
"Before you cook you
should always check the la-
bel for fat content and calo-
rie totals," she said. "I defi-
nitely feel kids should get
involved in 4-H.."
On the third and final
day of the camp students
prepared a meal of tacos for
some special invited guests.


'Walton County Citizens
Services Director Ken Lit-
tle, Marty Dees of WZEP
radio and Walton County
Employment Coordinator
Kebby Hall were on hand
for lunch and presentation
of the students' certificates
of completion.
"The kids worked really
hard to prepare this meal,"
said Hughson. "These are:
great projects f6r middle
school aged children."

The Extension service
has plans to hold camps in
south Walton County also.

Rapid-rising fuel costs force


power price increase


Citing double-digit in-
creases in the price of natu-
ral gas and coal, Gulf Power
Company is asking the Flor-
ida Public Service Commis-
sion (FPSC) to approve an
increase in electricity prices
to cover a $76 million short-
fall in 2008 revenues.
If the request is ap-
proved, residential custom-
ers will see an increase of
11.3 percent, raising the
cost of 1,000 kilowatt hours
from $102.22 to $113.76.
Gulf Power makes no
profit on the. cost of fuel.
Customers are billed only
what Gulf Power pays for
the fuels used to make elec-
tricity.
To lessen the impact on
customers, Gulf Power is
asking the FPSC to spread
the increase out until the
end of 2009, rather than
collecting all of the short-
fall in 2008 the normal
annual recovery period. If
approved by the FPSC the
increase would go into effect


September 1.
"The increase in the cost
of fuel that we are experi-
encing is unprecedented,"
said Gulf Power's General
Manager of Public Affairs
John Hutchinson. "We don't
like increasing our prices
especially at this difficult
time. But just like the ris-
ing cost of gasoline, the cost'
of the fuels we use continues
to climb. By spreading the
shortfall out over a longer
period of time we hope to
lessen the impact as much
as possible."
The average price of coal,
which fuels more than 80
percent of Gulf Power's elec-
tricity generation, has risen
30 percent in the last year
while average natural gas
prices have jumped 47 per-
cent since 2007.
Gulf Power is the third
major utility in Florida seek-
ing a mid-year fuel adjust-
ment, with Florida Power
and Light and Progress En-
ergy seeking increases ear-


lier this month. Normally,
the FPSC. adjusts electricity
prices each January for fuel
price fluctuations. But coal
and natural gas prices have
risen so rapidly in 2008, util-
ities are being forced to ask
for mid-year adjustments.
I If the FPSC approves all
the requests, Gulf Power
will continue to have the
lowest rates among all the
major utilities in the state.
Electric utility custom-
ers pay only the actual fuel
costs that the company in-
curs. When fuel prices go
up, the additional costs are
passed through, to custom-
ers. And when fuel prices
go down, the savings are
passed through to custom-
ers. Fuel costs have a major
impact on electricity bills,
accounting for almost 50
percent of the total bill.
To help customers, Gulf
Power offers free energy
checkups to identify energy
efficiency measures to save
homeowners and businesses


money on their electricity
bills. The company also of-
fers rebates on geothermal
heating and cooling systems
which save up to 40 per-
cent on heating and cooling
costs, as well .as innovative
rates and residential energy
management systems to
help' customers lower their
bills. And, the company of-
fers a number of payment
options and programs to
help customers smooth out
payments during high-bill
months. Plan details and
energy-saving tips are avail-
able at www.gulfpower.com.

School board


wraps up year-


end business


By PATRICK CASEY
The Walton County
School Board met on Tues-
day, June 17, to handle sev-
eral contract items in prep-
aration for the end of the
fiscal year.
Mark Gardner presented
the board with an update
on capital projects through-
out the county. South Wal-
ton High School will have
bathroom facilities built at
the softball field. Walton
Middle School is receiv-
ing sod for the new softball
field that has been built on
campus. Work is also being
done on the Walton High
School baseball field to im-
prove the playing surface.
Mossy Head Elementary
School is about seven weeks
away from completion. The
new Walton High School is
proceeding with roof work
as the structure continues
to make progress towards
a summer 2009 completion
date.
Board members ratified
the yearly agreement with
the Panhandle Area Educa-
tional Consortium to coop-
erate with school boards of
other districts in this state
in a Regional Consortium
Service Organization that
works for the acquisition of
materials, supplies, equip-
ment, contracted services
and participation in pro-
grams and projects when
such meets specific needs of
the district and is deemed
educationally or monetari-
ly beneficial by the school
board.
Board members also ap-
proved a new course de-
scriition presented by Tom
Blackshear to be submitted
to the Deparment of Educa-
tion for state approval and
incorporation. The .course
is social studies-oriented
in balancing conservation
and development in local
Florida environments. This
includes the history and re-


sources in an area driven by
the political and economic
decisions made during land
development. The course, if
approved, could be an elec-
tive or form a foundation of
an environmental academy
curriculum.
The Career and Profes-
sional Education Act of 2007
was approved. This requires
each district to collaborate
with local business and
workforce agencies to es-
tablish a five-year strategic
plan to perpare students for
entering the workforce.
The board members also
approved a measure to allow
all middle schools the op-
tion to teach Spanish II for
high school credit in middle
school. Middle schools had
been allowed only to teach
Spanish I for high school
credit in middle school.
The board voted to con-
tinue paying employees for
both meals and mileage
when attending one-day
meetings, despite being pre-
sented with a measure to
change the practice. Many
districts do not reimburse
for meals, though they do
pay for mileage. The mea-
sure for change failed by a
3-2 vote, with the issue to be
studied at a later date.
Trip requests were ap-
proved for six students and
one chaperone from Free-
port High School to attend a
Josten's Yearbook Camp at
Auburn University on June
25-27. Walton High School's
girls volleyball schedule
was also approved for the
2008-09 season.
The Walton County
School Board will hold their
next regular meeting on
Monday, June 30, at 5 p.m.,
at the Tivoli .Administra-
tive Complex in DeFuniak
Springs. The meeting has
been moved up a day to fol-
low a budget workshop at 4
p.m. that must be held on
Monday, June 30.

boom trucks for the sanitation department. (Photo by Alicia Leonard)




DFS City Council "knuckles"



down on truck purchases


By ALICIA LEONARD
In short order, the De-
Funiak Springs City Council
approved budgeted equip-
ment and material bids.
Public Works Director Bill
Holloway received unani-
.mous approval to purchase
two new "knuckle-boom"
trash trucks for the sanita-
tion department. The state
contract price for the truck
is $96,000 each for a total of
$192,000. With three trucks
already in the fleet, Hollo-
way told the Council that
two were always in need of
repair. "They run five days a
week. Just the normal wear


and tear on these trucks
causes them to have to be
replaced. We will get set to
surplus auction the two that
have been getting the most
attention for repairs and get
some of their value back,"
said Holloway.
Fire Chief Brian Coley re-
ceived unanimous approval
to accept a bid from Baker
Mental for repairs and up-
grades to the structure of
the fire station in DFS. Co-
ley told the council mem-
ber, "This includes skirting
inside and out and we also
are' getting a new ceiling
upstairs and some insula-


tion in the building to make
it more professional looking
and energy efficient." The
bid that was approved was
the lowest one for a cost of
$8,166. .
The Council approved
unanimously to renew the
agreement with the Heri-
tage Association for the De-
pot for the next two years
and then accepted three
proposals from area farmers
interested in the mainte-
nance of the city'supland ir-
rigation spray-sites., but no
decision on thewinning bid
was made.
The Council approved


new changes to the city's
sick leave policy. The policy
will allow for employees to
join a sick-leave pool, as well
as donate sick leave hours
to others employees. City
Manager Kim Kirby told the
Council that many in the
city's administration had
worked tirelessly to make
sure there were checks and
balances in the policy and it
could not be misused. Coun-
cilman James Huffman
praised the move and said,
"I think this will help with
retention of good employees,
to be able to give them a lit-
tle more benefits."


Cross-country bikers pass through DeFuniak Springs


By REID TUCKER

Fred Ellis and Bill Abbey
are bikers, and like most
bikers, they're independent-
minded and never ones to
shy away from an adven-
ture.
The similarities end&
there, though. Ellis and Ab-
liey are cross-country riders,
but neither passes the miles
astride a v-twin and rum-
bling exhaust pipes. They
don't even have beards or
leathers.
The fact is, the two are
bikers, but of the non-mo-
torized variety, preferring
to tackle the distance on bi-
cycles. It's a distinction that
Ellis says they've ended up
explaining pretty often to
the folks they meet on their
tours across the country.
"We'll tell people we're
bikers and they don't be-
lieve us at first," Ellis said.
"Then I'll remember to say
something like, 'Oh yeah, I
meant we're cyclists."'
On Tuesday, May 27,
the two passed through
the Adventure Cycling As-
sociation's (ACA) Southern
Tier Section Seven, or as
the locals call it, DeFuniak
Springs, on their way to
their final destination in
St. Augustine, where the
Southern Tier route meets
up with one running up the
Atlantic coastline. The two
set out from San Diego, CA.,
and over the course of the
last few months have made
their way eastward, across
the deserts of New Mexico,
Arizona and Texas to the
bayous of Louisiana on the
way to the continent's oldest
permanent European settle-
ment.
This is the first time
they've taken the southern-
most route on the ACA's
tour map, but it's definitely
not the first long-distance


BILL ABBEY (left) AND FRED ELLIS (right) arrived in DeFuniak Springs on Tuesday,
May 27 after riding their bikes all the way from San Diego, CA. on the last leg of the Adven-
ture Cycling Association's Southern Tier Route, which ends in St. Augustine.


trip they've taken together.
In 2004 the 61-year-old Ab-
bey crossed North America
on the Lewis and Clark
Trail from Hartford, IL. to
Seaside, OR., and they've
both ridden from Anchorage
to Fairbanks, Alaska, end-
ing up in the Arctic Circle.
Abbey, a native of Pouls-
bo, WA., got into bicycle tour-
ing when, after undergoing
several unsuccessful knee
reconstruction surgeries.
He decided the only way to
avoid going under the knife
again was to strengthen his
knee, and picked biking be-
cause it seemed to be one of
the most difficult ways to
accomplish that. The road to
recovery wasn't an easy one,
he said, but it's been all the


more memorable because of
it.
"Life is pretty boring if you
don't have any goals," Abbey
said, deadpan at first, and
then breaking into an easy
grin as he declared himself
to be one of the least-active
people he knew. "For a lot
of people, their goals are a
good-looking yard and nice
grandkids. Now, I like for
my yard to stay neat, and
I love my grandkids, but a
perfect yard is a sure sign of
a sick mind."
For Ellis, 39, the transi-
tion to long-distance adven-
ture touring was a more ob-
vious one, as he cut his teeth
in cycling as a participant in
the International Triathlon
Union's World Duathlon


Championship series. Du-
athlons are not to be con-
fused with biathlons, which
most commonly involve a
winter sport, mainly skiing,
combined with rifle shoot-
ing, but rather are struc-
tured along similar lines as
a triathlon (most duathlons
feature a long running stint
followed by biking and fin-
ishing with a shorter run,
but omitting swimming as
in a triathlon). The bottom
line is after the Bambridge,
WA. native placed 29th out
of the entire world in his
age group at the peak of
his career, he grew tired of
his regimented lifestyle and
took up long-distance bike
touring to wind down his
last season and ended up


getting hooked.
"I started out riding
across the state [Washing-
ton], and I really enjoyed it,"
Ellis said. "But I thought, 'If
you're going to ride. across
the state, why not the whole
country?'"
As far as what it takes
to physically make a cross-
country bike tour possible,
obviously physical fitness
is a necessity, as a 50-mile-
per-day ride is the rule,
rather than the exception,
but mental fitness is also
required, Ellis said. They
call this combination "road
shape," or mentally and
physically able to sit on a
hard bike seat for hours a
day and get from point A to
point B without going stir-
crazy. The only way to get
in "road shape" is touring,
Ellis said, since if a person
trained as hard as they'd
need to, they might as well
just go for it and tour.
Mechanical skills aren't a
bad idea either, Abbey said.
Being able to fix a broken
chain or mend a flat tire is
an invaluable skill since a
rider can't always count on
a bike shop being around
the corner, especially in
West Texas, where he said
there aren't any corners in
the first place.
In spite of the copious
bragging rights one might
associate with a physical
feat like biking across the
United States, Ellis and Ab-
bey said the most rewarding
part of their cross-country
treks are the interesting
people they meet along the
way.
"A major part of touring is
finding out hospitable peo-
ple are," Ellis said. "We've
had people cook us dinner
and then let us sleep in their
yard. Poor behavior [on the
part of people they meet] is
definitely the exception."


Most times, though, the
two sleep at campgrounds,
but that isn't true for many
long-distance riders, Abbey
said. Some other adventure
riders stay in hotel rooms
every night, and though
Ellis and Abbey have occa-
sionally spent the night at
a Holiday Inn Express here
and there, they've factored
in costs of $30 per day for
food and lodging, so -hotel
stays are limited to very
rare, and appreciated, oc-
currences, Abbey said.
"You can spend as much
as you want,'but we set our
limit for most days at $30,"
Abbey said. "Besides, if you
aren't careful, the trip can
turn into just a long series of
hotel rooms, and that takes
away from. the experience in
a lot of ways."
After making repairs to
a blown tire and grabbing a
quick bite to eat, Ellis and
Abbey prepared to depart
Baldwin Avenue for their
last stop on the Atlantic
coast in St. Augustine. They
said they likely won't be the
last long-distance riders to
pass through DeFuniak, as
bikers from Europe are be-
coming increasingly inter-
ested in long-distance riding
in the U.S. because of favor-
able monetary exchange
rates and, apparently, very
nice people. Before riding
off, Ellis offered a tip to any
interested DeFuniak entre-
preneur.
"A bike shop would prob-
ably do pretty well around
here," Ellis said. "There are
going to be more of us [bik-
ers] coming this way."

This reporter forgot to
ask if the pair is taking a
plane back to California. If
they stop back by this way,
that ought to suffice for an
answer.

Trace your


genealogical


roots at the


Baker Block


Museum


By JEFFREYPOWELL

Baker Block Museum
Volunteer Curator Jeanette
Henderson is passionate
about the people and history
of the Panhandle. She has
been with the Baker Block
Museum since it opened in
1996 and was part of a com-
munity effort to organize
the facility. "I believe it is
important for everyone to
know about their family his-
tory. I also believe you heed
to know where you came
from to plan your future."
As part of the North Oka-
loosa Historical Association
Inc. Henderson and many
other area history buffs,
started collecting items
for the museum even be-
fore they had a building. In
1994 the space the museum
now owns came up for sale.,
The organization applied
for a historical grant from
the state tp help with the
financing but was turned
down. The next year they
received a grant and the
downtown Baker property
was purchased. According to
Henderson the group used a
$312,000 grant to purchase
and refurbish the building,
which was in "bad condi-
tion.",
Within the museum's
collection are artifacts that
,tell the tale of early 'life in
northwest Florida.' Visitors
can see artifacts including
vintage clothing,, early med-
ical equipment,: household
items, farm tools, an 1887


printing press, early pho-
tographs, American Indian
artifacts and timber/turpin-
tine items.
One of the unique at-
tributes of the museum is
its genealogical research
library. Visitors can access
the facilities many. volumes
of genealogical data or use
a computer to search out
long-lost relatives. Many
times there is a volunteer
on hand to assist in the re-
search. Henderson believes
that the history of the area
and genealogical research
can work hand in hand.,
"I am a firm believer that
in order to get your history.
correct you must first get
your genealogy correct," said
Henderson. "If you do not,
you could give the wrong
person credit for physical lo-
cations such as mills, roads
and ferries."
Through the museums
computers visitors can ac-
cess Latter, Day Saints
church records in Salt Lake
City. Those records contain
the death .certificates, mar-
riage licensees and birth
certificates of millions of
people.
Adjacent- to the muse-
um proper are a post office
moved from the community
of Otahite, an old chicken
house and several other au-
thentic outbuildings to tour
and enjoy.
The museum is located

Paul donates hair


to Locks of Love U


Hello! my name is
Danielle Paul. I am 9 years-
old.
Almost four years ago I
had -heard about Locks of
Love from a very special
lady, but at least ten inches
of hair is required before I
could donate. My Daddy
didn't want me to have my
hair cut until the length
would touch the top of
my shoulders after the cut.
I had my mother go
online to Locks of Love to
read more about how to
donate my hair and how
they use the hair once they
receive it. I was really
amazed at how the people
looked and how the hair
they had received from
other donors made them so
beautiful. I also found out
that it is not just for cancer
patients, but also for chil-
dren suffering from medical
hair loss. They also don't
discriminate as to the cause
of hair loss.
The largest number of
children that come to the
program live with Alopecia,
which is an auto-immune
disorder that causes the
hair follicles to shut down.
This disease affects 4.7 mil-
lion people in the U.S.
alone, and it affects both


sexes. There is no known
cause or cure for the
Alopecia.
Cancer patients are the
second highest percentage
of their recipients. Every
year, approximately 2,200
children under age 20 are
diagnosed with brain
tumors. Radiation treat-
ment to the brain stem as a
treatment for cancer can
cause permanent hair loss.
Chemotherapy may also
cause hair loss to be long--
term, depending on the
length of treatment needed.
Locks of Love is commit-
ted to providing the highest
to providing the highest
quality hairpieces to every
child suffering from long--
term or permanent medical
hair loss. The hair prosthe-
ses provided are custom
made from donated pony-
tails and retail for between
$3,500 and $6,000. This
prosthesis is different from
synthetic hairpieces because
they form a vacuum seal
and do not require the use
of tape or glue and only the
wearer may remove it.' So
children can get back to
their everyday play time
without being afraid of los-
ing their hair. The entire
process of receiving a hair-


piece takes between four
and six months.
After seeing their Web
site and reading how they
help children have hair, I
told my Mama and Daddy
that I wanted to be able to
make someone that had no
hair beautiful by giving
them mine. I have had my


hair trimmed to keep the
split ends off but this was
my very first major haircut.
It really made me feel good
and happy to know that I
was doing something won-
derful to help someone else
that would never have the
chance to grow their hair as
long as mine. I have told my

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, JUNE 26,2008
Beth Moore to deliver live message

"Live" simulcast scheduled for August 1-2 at

First Baptist Church of DeFuniak Springs


Best-selling Christian au-
thor Beth Moore will deliver
a message to an estimated
80,000 women on August
1-2, 2008 from Louisville,
KY. Local residents will
have the opportunity to see
the popular Bible teacher
"live" without leaving De-
Funiak Springs.
Through a partnership
between LifeWay Women's
Events, Church Communi-
cation Network (CCN), and
First Baptist Church of De-
Funiak Springs, a simulcast
will broadcast live via satel-
lite from Southeast Chris-
tian Church in Louisville,
KY. Some 600 churches
across the U.S. are partici-
pating as host churches.

July 3. 6:30 p.m.


The simulcast event is
in conjunction with the
Living Proof Live event in
Louisville, KY. Living Proof
Live is a unique women's
event-no two bearing the
same message.
"Our deep and genuine
desire is to see the Holy
Spirit of the living God
poured out on people so that
the lost are found, the wea-
ry are revived, and Christ is
glorified through lives un-
leashed to bear much fruit,"
says Moore. "We have one
goal: people coming to love
Jesus Christ with a passion
through the study of His
Word."

Following Christ Alone


Rev. Dr. Charles Satterwhite, Pastor


Jesus said to him, "If I
will that he remain till I
come, what is that to you?
You follow Me." John 21.22;
Luke 14.26-7
There is a disconnect be-
tween the results of national
polls concerning religion
and religious reality. For
instance, upwards of 90 per-
cent of Americans claim to
believe in God, and a large
majority of those claim to be
Christians.
If that's true, where are
all these followers of Christ?
It would seem that many
people believe it's possible
to follow Christ and follow
other religions, or the ways
of this wicked world at the
same time.


Jesus made it clear in
His teachings that His "reli-
gion" is an exclusive one: "I
am the way, the truth, and
the life. No one comes to the
Father except through Me"
(John 14.6).
In a modern, pluralis-
tic culture, that doesn't sit
well. And it didn't sit well
with Peter who was mo-
mentarily confused about
followershipp." To Peter,
Jesus said (paraphrase),
"Don't worry about what
others are doing. You follow
Me."
When someone asks you
what you are (religiously
speaking), what do you
say? "I'm a (name of your
denomination)"? Or do you


Dr. Charles Satterwhite

say, "I'm a follower of Jesus
Christ-a Christian"?
In an age that values tol-
erance and rejects absolutes,
it will never be popular to
say, "I follow only One."
Christianity can be con-
densed into four words: ad-
mit, submit, commit, and
transmit.
Samuel Wilberforce


Kenneth Purdom of
"True Love Waits," is com-
ing to DeFuniak Springs on
Thursday, July 17, 2008 to
meet with area youth lead-
ers about planning a "True
Love Waits" rally in our
area.
If there are any church,


school, or community lead-
ers who are concerned
about the issues of spiritu-
al, mental, and sexual pu-
rity among our youth, then
you may want to attend this
meeting.
As of now, the meeting
will be at the DeFuniak


Springs Civic Center from 6
p.m. to "whenever."

A royal life is a reigning life

BY DR. ROBERT M. JAYE


It would take a lifetime-
really all of eternity-to-
explore the text found in
Romans 5:17. "For if by one
man's offence death reigned
by one; much more they
which receive abundance of
grace, and the gift of righ-
teousness, shall reign in life
my One, Jesus Christ," To be
fair, we will have to wait for
the future life to unfold all
the meaning of this verse,
but we can claim it as ours
through Christ both here
and now.
A master in Israel once
asked our Lord Christ, "How
can these things be?" By na-
ture we are from below into
the first Adam, who was a
"a living soul." We must be
born from above, into the
second Adam, Christ, who
becomes to all who trust in
Him the life-giving spirit.


That which is born of the
flesh is flesh, and cannot
rise into the Spirit! The
Holy Spirit must stoop to
lift the believer into union
with Himself as the believer
believes! He will do this for
any who believe.
What a difference it will
make! Whatever happens in
life, there is always an abun-
dance of grace awaiting our
benefit. Sometimes a person
is as blind to it as Balaam
was to the angel that stood
by the wayside.
Surely we, make our
plans we even lie awake
at night in a fever to plan
what we think will be best!
But to have a reigning life
through Christ means to
have a childlike faith in the
Lord Christ. There is an
abundance of grace to help
us meet the need of the hour


when we become aware of
our need for the Savior.
What will be the re-
sults? It is a royal life. If a
throne means power-we are
strengthened with might
by His Spirit in the inner
person. We are more than
conquerors through Him
that loves us. We have al-
ways all sufficiency in all
things through our Lord Je-
sus Christ.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, JUNE 26,2008


Sports news and notes


By PATRICK CASEY
The Jacksonville Uni-
versity women's basketball
team announced the trans-
fer of former Appalachian
State guard Gigi Thomas,
who will be eligible to prac-
tice with the squad but will
not compete for the program
until 2009- 10. Thomas,
a 5-foot-8 junior, was one
of the top scorers for the
Mountaineers in each of her
two seasons while also rank-
ing as one of the squad's top
defenders. As a sophomore,
she ranked second on the
squad with 11.3 points per
game while averaging 3.2


rebounds, 1.9 assists and
1.8 assists per contest. As
a freshman, she ranked
third on the squad with an
average of 10.3 points per
game while averaging 3.3
rebounds and 1.5 steals per
contest en route to Southern
Conference all-freshman
team accolades. In her prep
career, Thomas was ranked
one of the top 15 seniors in
the state of Florida after
averaging 15 points, five re-
bounds, four steals and three
assists while leading Florida
High School to its first state
championship in 2006. Dur-
ing her tenure under head


coach Lisa Kelly, she tallied
1,000 career points, played
in the North-South All-Star
Game and was a McDonald's
All-American nominee.

Trey Hayes recently
signed to play baseball at
Samford University. Hayes
(6-1, 200) is a power-hitting
outfielder with speed that
will join the Bulldog pro-
gram this fall from Oka-
loosa-Walton Community
College in Niceville. While
competing in one of the top
conferences in the coun-
try, Hayes led the team in
home runs and was second


in batting average, doubles
and runs batted in, and he
was third in stolen bases.
Hayes played primarily in
the outfield as a sophomore
but also played at first base
this season after playing
some third base as a fresh-
man. As a sophomore, he led
the team with 10 home runs
while also batting .363, with
13 doubles, 49 runs bat-
ted in and 12 stolen bases.
Hayes was also one of only
two players to play in every
game this season. Hayes
played high school baseball
as a shortstop at Crestview
High where he was a three-


year starter and All-Area
performer. He was named
All-State for two seasons
and' a PUMA All American.
Hayes' power numbers and
experience should prove
valuable for the Bulldogs
next season, having lost a
strong group of seniors with
power.
Ratings for last week's
Tampa Bay-Chicago Cubs
series posted the highest
numbers on Fox Sports Net
Florida since the inception
of the Rays. The three game
sweep by the host Rays was
one of the most watched se-
ries in the team's history.


How about a Tampa Bay-
Chicago World Series this
fall? Wouldn't that rate as
one of the all-time surpris-
ing match-up possibilities
in the World Series in Major
League Baseball if it came
true?
Notre Dame and NBC
have extended their na-
tional television agreement
through the 2015 season to

After losing miserably to

Seminoles packed their bags
and headed home after No.

stunned by Georgia, held

World Series. Jemile Weeks

canes jumped ahead late in
the game and held on to a
7-5 victory.,

that could have possibly tak-

Buster Posey, crumbled
once again in their second
game of the series and their



wins,


out of slump


By CHUCK HINSON
It had been two weeks
since Kyle Busch had driven
the winner's circle, but this
past Sunday, he made his
way back to the top spot and
even the crowds that had
previously jeered him after
his wins, applauded the ef-
fort. He started at No. 30
and worked his way back to
win the Sprint Cup Toyota/
Save Mart 350.
The Infineon Raceway in
Sonoma, CA seemed to be
the place for him to make
his comeback win as he won
his series-high fifth visit to
victory lane this season and
got hi 11th win overall this
season spanning all three of


NASCAR's top series.
Despite the comeback,
Busch never thought he
would be able to finish the
race without wrecking. Nev-
ertheless, he did win the
race though his Toyota did
not perform well in the prac-
tice runs on Friday and Sat-
urday. But he improved as
the race went on, took the
lead from defending cham-
pion Juan Pablo Montoya,
and made his stand at the
top of the point lead, unde-
niable.
David Gilliand finished a
career-best second, followed
by Jeff Gordon, Clint Boyer
and Casey Mears to wrap up
the top five spots.


Kalitta dies in


first round of play-offs in the
elimination round.
Despite banging out 18
hits during the game, the
Noles left 17 men on the
bases to set another CWS re-
cord for a nine-inning game.
The Noles already captured
the embarrassing prize of
having their opponent beat
them by the largest point-
spread since 1994.
FSU (54-14) left Omaha,
NE after two games for the
fourth time in 13 appear-
ances under the head coach-
ing of Mike Martin. The
Canes (53-10) have not gone
two-and-out in 20 College
World Series appearances
since 1979.
Ryan Jackson went
3-for-4 and Dennis Raben
and Jason Hagerty joined


Weeks in driving in two
runs for the Hurricanes.
Miami has beaten FSU in
three of of four times the
two teams have played each
other. Florida State was
consistent with their hitting
against four different Miami
pitchers that were put 0on
the mnound,.it. was just the
problem of making those
hits turn into scores for the
Seminoles.

Erik Erickson pitched five
innings for Miami, striking
out six Noles, while Kyle
Bellamy pitched two innings
before Carlos Gutirrez came
in to finish out the game.
FSU starter Eliah Vil-
lanueva went 3 2/3 innings,
giving up four runs and six
hits with four walks.

Though the sport is all
about the cars and their
funny appearance and driv-
ing capabilities, there was
no one laughing after cel-
ebrated driver Scott Kalitta
of Palmetto, FL, died in a
qualifying race in English-
town, N.J.
The accident happened
during the final rounds of
the Lucas Oil NHRA Super-
nationals at the Old Bridge
Township Raceway Park.
Kalitta held national
wins for 1994 and '95 Top
Fuel season champion, with
18 career wins overall. Of


those 18 wins, 17 wins were
in Top Fuel and one in Fun-
ny Car.

His Toyota Solara was
traveling in excess of 300
mph when it burst into
flames, causing Kalitta to
loose control and slam into
the guard wall at the end of
the track. He was carried
to the Raritan Bay Medical
Center in Old Bridge, NJ,
where he died a short time
later.
In 2007, Funny Car driver
Eric Medlen died in Gaines-
ville after a test-session
wreck.


Five Sports Facts

1. New York Yankees first baseman Lou Gehrig became
the first player in modern baseball history to hit four home
runs in a game in 1932 in a 20-13 victory over the Philadel-
phia Athletics at Shibe Park.

2. The Kentucky Wildcats defeated the Duke Bluedevils in
1978, 94-88, to capture the school's fifth NCAA men's bas-
ketball championship.

3. Lee Trevino shot a final-round 69 to earn his first PGA
Tour victory with a four-stroke win in the U.S. Open. Trevi-
no became the first golfer ever to shoot four straight rounds
under par in an Open.

4. Former University of Georgia quarterback Jon Rauch
started every game (45 in all) of his college career from
1945-48 and became the first player in NCAA history to
start four consecutive bowl games.

5. Derrick Brooks of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers has start-
ed 192 consecutive NFL regular season games, the longest
current streak among active players.

College football on our minds


By CHUCK HINSON
If you are a southerner, s
southern transplant, or just
a fan of the pigskin -then
you already feel the fever. I
am referring to college foot-
ball season here in the deep
South and what lies ahead
for many of the SEC and
ACC teams.
After January bowl sea-
son, the roar of the football
fans seems to quieten to a
light murmur. The national
championship team wore
the colors and flew the flags
stating their sports domi-
nation, and the banner has
been hung in the stadium
announcing another suc-


cessful, winning season.
The end of school came
for most universities and
colleges at the end of May.
Now, the sound of hallowed
halls, and for many the
sound summer school plays
like a untuned violin in
their ear, warning them of
the fun they will be having
for the next few weeks.
But in a little more than
nine weeks, it is time once
again for the first toss of the
pigskin and the first mad
rush to the stadium for col-
lege football fans. A time-
honored tradition, that for
, many, their entire lives are
built around the game times


and the tailgate parties.
With any' college fan,
you either love or hate the
SEC. Be it a Gator hater or
a Bulldog backer, the SEC
has been stacked heavy with
talent for many decades and
it seems that they are only
getting stronger. One team
that has a lot of people whis-
pering about an SEC title
and possible chance at the
"big game," is Georgia. Mark
Reicht's team is stacked and
packed and with a powerful
offense and defense return-
ing this year, they seem to
be the ones to watch and
even place your early bets
on.


Florida fans know that
last year there were a few
letdowns, but Tim Tebow
walked away with the Heis-
man Trophy and put Florida
on the football powerhouse
map. But with the greats
come the spoilers, and many
say that is exactly what
will happen with opponents
wanting to take Tebow
down.
LSU, despite losing their
starting quarterback, will
still be a power to deal with
through next season. They
are still heavy in recruit-
ment and their national
championship rings are still
shining bright.


Celtics do it after 22 years


By CHUCK HINSON
The team that thought
they would never see the
color of green displayed in
the NBA Hall of Fame for
a national title, finally got
their wish. The Boston Celt-
ics beat the L. A Lakers in
game six of the NBA finals,
131-92.
On a brand new parquet
floor in the Boston Arena,
the Boston Celtics added
their 17th banner to the ma-
terial that hung around the


court. After 22 years, the
Celtics could celebrate the
green and white lucky Irish
colors.

The Big Three, as they
are referred to by fans and
the media, Kevin Garnett,
Paul Peirce and Ray Allen,
had the most to celebrate as
the new generation of play-
ers on the NBA and for Bos-
ton. Pierce really had a lot to
celebrate since he was also
selected as the MVP Player


of the NBA.
With the win and end in
sight, fans across the arena
began to sing like they had
just gotten the last call at
the local Irish pub. They
even found time to ridicule
Kobe Bryant and the Lak-
ers.
Garnett shined on the
court with 26 points for the
night, and Pierce added
17 points as the Celtics, a
24-win team a year ago, got
their first national trophy


sine 1986. This all happened
while the Lakers were try-
ing to be thr first team in
the final's history, to over-
come a 3-1 deficit.

Boston's 39-point win
surpassed the record for the
biggest margin of victory in
a championship game. The
record was broken by the
same two teams who played
against each other, and the
Celtics won 129-96 in game
five of the 1965 NBA finals.


Walton Extreme Fastpitch softball


Walton Extreme Fast-
pitch Softball girls 18U
traveling team competed in
their first softball tourna-
ment on June 14 and 15 at
the ninth annual Paradise
Jamboree in Panama City
at the Frank Brown Park
Recreational Complex. They
played four games with one
win and three losses. Walton
Extreme consists of 13 girls
ages 13 to 18 years old.
Walton Extreme played
Vernon Florida Fear in their
first game. Walton Extreme
played a shut-out game
against Vernon Florida Fear
with a score of 1-0. Devin
Richardson pitched the en-
tire game. Curstin Buford
hit the ball that allowed
Tiffany Brantley to run in
the winning point. Walton
ended the fifth inning with
a double play by Shelbie
Standland when she caught
a pop fly at short stop and
threw out the runner at first
base with a great catch by
Jewel Spence.
Walton Extreme lost
their second game to the
Tallahassee Warriors with
a score of 3-2. In the second
inning Devin Richardson
bunted Tiffany Brantley in
for the first point. This was
followed up with a big hit to
right field by Chelsea Hur-
ley that allowed Devin Rich-
ardson to score. Pitching
for Walton Extreme in this
game was Katie Free.
For their final game on
Saturday, Walton Extreme
played Panama City Rage.
Devin Richardson pitched
the first two innings with


Curstin Buford taking over
for the rest of the game. Tif-
fany Brantley hit in Layla
Roberts for the only run
scored by Walton Extreme.
Panama City Rage defeated
Walton Extreme 4-1.
-On Sunday, Walton Ex-
treme played Thomasville
Jackets. Walton Extreme
lost 0-7 to the Jackets de-
spite several good hits. Pitch-
ing for Walton Extreme in
this game was Devin Rich-
ardson and Curstin Buford.
Coach Stan Stanland and
Coach Carol Richardson
would like to thank all of
the team's sponsors for mak-
ing this possible for these
young ladies. They plan to
play June 21 and 22 in Gulf
Breeze.

Many, including sports
writers and administra-
tion, say that both Saban's
Crimson Tide and the Au-
burn Tigers, both have an-
other year of growing pains
and need another season to
fine- tune their offense and
defense, especially against
teams like Georgia, Tennes-
see, Florida and LSU.
In the ACC division,
Florida State is still trying
to come to grips with an-
other lack-luster sesaon and
still trying to make heads
or tails about their "coach-
in-waiting," Jimbo Fisher.
Bobby Bowden is still at the
helm of the Seminoles' bat-
tle ship and many say that
with his age and the pos-
sibility of Penn State's Joe
Paterno not getting his con-
tract renewed, this might be
the last year of the Bowden
rule.
That has been said be-
fore, but with teams on
the rise like Wake Forest,
Clemson, Georgia Tech, and
Maryland, it is time to take


the conference seriously and
move the team in a new di-
rection, with a new director.
Clemson head coach, and
Bobby's boy, Jeff Bowden,
got a contract extension and
will be there for at least four
more years as the head foot-
ball coach. Well, that is if a
sweeter deal with the pack
from Tally makes him a
deal.
Despite the heat of June
and the long days of sum-
mer that we have yet expe-
rienced, it is almost a com-
fort to know that football
and cooler weather are just
around the corner. Over the
next few weeks, it will be
interesting to see who be-
gins to make it to the top
of the pile, what team has
a successful summer work-
out, watch the polls and
preseason stats and most of
all, see if any of our favorite
teams and players can stay
out of the jail cells and on
. the playing field.
It will be another exciting
season of college football!

After a routine beginning
of the South Walton County

utes were read and approved
and,a financial report given,
the business of the day be-
gan.
Attorney Lori Bytell had
been asked to research pro-
cedures the board might
need to take regarding
Charlie Burke. Bytell said
since he was suspended by
the governor, rather than re-
moved, everything hinges on
the governor. As Burke was
found guilty of a felony, the
governor must now move to
officially remove him via ex-
ecutive order. The governor
has the option of appointing
a replacement if a removed
board member 28 months or
less remaining on the term
of the elected office.
Sentencing on the Burke'
conviction is scheduled for
July 10 and Burke is ex-
pected to appeal, although
Bytell said the appeal does
not affect removal.

should prevail, he can also


On bed tax
collections


County


does

snooze
By LEAH STRATMANN
The last several meetings
of the South Walton Tourist
Development Council (TDC)
have seen inquiries into the
progress of collecting un-
paid occupancy or bed taxes,
primarily from individu-
als who rent property on a
short-term basis. In Wal-
ton County, the bed tax is 4
percent, meaning four cents
of every dollar charged. for
short-term rentals, goes into
the coffers of the TDC.
Joyce Sunddy, an 11-year
county employee, is the col-
lection specialist with the
Walton County Clerk of
the Court's office. It is her
task to collect the bed taxes,
as well as try and identify
those individuals not paying
the tax.
"The amount of unpaid
tax is not knowable," she
said. "A lot of folks honestly
do not know they owe the
tax. Many of the owners
live out of state and think
Florida law does not ap-
ply to them. The location of
the rental property is what
matters. Most will come into
compliance when we notify
them," Sunday said.
"Unless they are advertis-
ing, we have trouble finding
out. Some people advertise

a successful appeal would

in worst case scenarios, we
will be paying attorney's
fees," she said.
In another -legal matter,
Gary D'Andrea, a former di-
rector of SWMCD, is suing
the district and the district's
insurance does not want to
pay for attorney's fees to de-
fend the case. The attorney
representing the district
has made a review of the
case to see if the allegations
made by the former director
are valid under the terms of
his contract. The former di-
rector's contract was not re-
newed and his services sus-
pended when the term of the
contract expired. Bytell said
the district's attorney has
asked the judge for, a sum-
mary judgment in the mat-

OWNERS OF two unfinished homes and a building slab on Walton Rose Lane have been put on notice to correct health
and safety.issues on their property. Further action may also be mandated for the homes if building permits are not ob-
tained. (Photo by Dotty Nist)


Unfinished homes found in violation


By DOTTY NIST
Owners of two partially
completed homes and a
building slab in Inlet Beach
have been found in viola-
tion by Walton County and
will be required to attend to
what have been termed as
"public safety issues."
On June 19, the Walton
County Code Enforcement
Board voted unanimously to
find the owners, all of whom
reside in Ohio, in violation
of county code. Alleged vio-
lations involve duty of main-
tenance on their property
and, in two of the cases, the
absence of a building permit
for the structures.
All the properties are lo-
cated near the southern in-
tersection of Walton Rose
Lane and U.S. 98 in Inlet


Beach. They are part of a
nine-lot subdivision ap-
proved by the county as
Eagle's Landing. The code
enforcement cases had
originated with an April 11
complaint to Walton County
Code Enforcement.
Buddy Wright, the code
enforcement officer in charge
of the cases, told the code
enforcement board mem-
bers that the partially com-
pleted homes had "sat out in
the weather" unsealed and
unsecured. "We're basically
looking at this from a public
safety standpoint," he said.
Wright said there were
other uncompleted houses
in the small subdivision and
that code enforcement was
able to work with property
owners to get four of those


boarded up.


"We're basical-
ly looking at this
from a public safety
standpoint. Code En-
forcement Officer Buddy
Wright

Alleged violations in the
.three cases included debris
and building materials ly-
ing in the yards of the two
homes and the property con-
taining the slab. When ques-
tioned about why the homes
were not completed, Wright
responded, "There is a fi-
nancial situation involved
with this." He said one of


the owners told him he "did
not have one more dime" to
spend on his house.
The records of the Wal-
ton County Clerk of Courts
indicate that contract and
indebtedness lawsuits, filed
by Eagle's Landing con-
tractor Cadenhead Devel-
opment, Inc., are pending
against owners of all three
properties involved in the
code enforcement cases.
Kevin Hargett, code en-
forcement coordinator, ex-
plained that originally the
structures were permitted
but that the building per-
mits for the three properties
had been voluntarily termi-
nated by the contractor. He
added that the time had also

SHOOTING THE BREEZE with Leah Stratmann


Altruistic conspiracies
with a happy ending are the
very best kind...please al-
lows me to explain.
As everyone knows, there
are lots and lots of irrespon-
sible people who have pets.
You know the kind: the ani-
mals never see a vet, they
are not neutered or spayed,
and they reproduce with the
abandon of animals. The
offspring of these erstwhile
pets become society's prob-
lem.
One such offspring ap-
peared in the yard near
my house recently. It was
a cute little black dog with
white feet and it was keep-
ing rather close to the house
next door, except when my
dog was out. Then she nat-
urally came over to play. I
asked my neighbors if it was
their dog and they said no, it
just wandered up and they
had been feeding it.
I was worried because
we live on a highway where
people do not slow down
as directed and traffic zips
right on by at a fast pace.
Until the fence around the
two properties is completed,
I put my dog on a long rope
which allows her about 30
feet of roaming space, but
prevents her from getting in
the road. The puppy had no
such restraints.
The puppy was fed next
door for about a week and
then they left. They may
even have left some food for
the dog, but there are oth-
er critters about who may-
or may not have eaten .the
food. They are a young cou-


Bank

arrested
With the help of the Oka-
loosa County Sheriffs Office
and the Niceville Police De-
apartment .the suspect. who
allegedly robbed the Van-
guard Bank in the Sand-
estin area was arrested
around 3:20 p.m. on June
20 in the parking lot area of
the K-Mart and Po Folks in
Niceville. He was driving a
2002 Dodge pickup. Inves-
tigators with the Walton
County Sheriffs Office were
also on scene.
The suspect, identified as
Nathan Levi Reddick, 23,,
of the Crestview area, al-
legedly. went into the bank
around 2 p.m. -armed with a
handgun demanding money.
An undetermined amount of
cash was taken and was re-
covered at the scene of the
arrest.
Reddick was charged with
one count of armed bank
robbery and was transport-
ed to the Okaloosa County
Jail and will be held until
first appearance.


ple with two small children
and one due in August and
the last thing they need or
can take care of is a puppy.
Having a pet is more than
food and water, as any re-
sponsible pet owner knows.
At any rate, the dog
showed up at my door and
when I let her in, she made
a straight line for the food
and water. This went on for
several days. I called every
animal shelter in Walton
County and was told they
were full up and could not
take the animal at this time.
I reasoned as cute as she-
was, she'd surely be adopt-
ed, but there was no room at
the inn.
Ultimately I formulated
a scheme. For months my
brother has been dither-
ing about getting a dog'.
He even made a trip to the
Panhandle Animals Welfare
Society (PAWS) to check out
the offerings. Leaving there,
according to his wife, he
decided he didn't want the
responsibility of a pet. I de-
cided he didn't see anything
he liked hnd the dog in my
possession was precisely the
type he would have chosen if
available.
I knew he was about to
take a short trip to Birming-
ham and would be gone
overnight. After consulting
with his spouse and telling
her my plan, she thought it
was a good idea. So, the day
he was to return, I timed
my trip to his house and put
the dog in his backyard and
scuttled home congratulat-
ing myself on a solution to
the problem. I knew the dog
wouldn't have long to wait
until my brother got home
and I left her some water, as
the weather is hot. My plan
was to deny all knowledge of
the dog.
My brother called when
he got home to let me. know
he had arrived safely. No
mention of a dog. About a
half hour after the first call,
he called again and said
he really didn't appreciate
a dog in his backyard and
demanded 'I come get it. I
feigned shock and surprise
and vehemently denied tak-
ing part in a dog conspiracy.
He was honked off and said
I'd be hearing from him. I
did in short order. His wife

cracked and spilled the
beans.
I told him I would not
come back to Destin to pick
up the dog and the shelters
in Walton County were full.
I told him- if he didn't want
the dog to take it to PAWS.
I got my good dog at PAWS
and I knew the chances were
good the dog would be adopt-
ed. He snorted and scoffed


and said the dog would only
have a 50-50 chance there. I
told him he could bring her
back to me if he really want-
ed to, but I knew the more
time he spent with her, the
less likely it was I would get
the dog back as she is super-
cute and very very smart.
A half hour later the
phone rang yet again and my
brother announced he was

going to PetSmart and had
an appointment with the vet
in two days' time. However,
my penalty for having done
this to him was to abandon
all hope of recovering the
money he owed me. "Done!"
I said...it wasn't like he was
making any attempt to pay
me even though he had the
money, and it seemed like a
reasonable trade-off to me.
Success. Dog and man
have found each other and
each will be the better for
it.

By BRUCE COLLIER
Peter Segal's "Get Smart"
succeeds at what everyone
who attempts this sort of
project remaking a beloved
comedy classic dreams of
doing. If you have any ac-
quaintance with the 1965
- 70 television series cre-
ated by Mel Brooks and
Buck Henry, you can re-
lax. Brooks gets credit as a
"consultant," though he had
no hand in the screenplay.
The screenwriters manage
to update the series the
adventures of a bumbling
secret agent, successful in
spite of himself while re-
sisting the temptation to
"improve" on it by adding
present-day comedy staples.
Rough language is minimal,
and therefore far more effec-
tive when it is used. There's
no bathroom humor (appar-
ently Mike Myer's "Love
Guru" has enough for sever-
al films), minor sexual refer-
ences, and no nudity. Even
James Caan's portrayal of
the (unnamed) American
president, a mildly inar-
ticulate Texas good 'ole boy,
is oddly affectionate. And
there's the casting, which is
near-perfect.
I have never watched
Steve Carrell in "The Of-
fice." My first look at him


was as "Uncle Arthur" in
Nora Ephron's 2005 film
"Bewitched." I was im-
pressed with his ability to
capture not only the essence
of Paul Lynde (who played
Uncle Arthur on the series),
but of Paul Lynde playing
the character, a neat trick
indeed.
Anyone playing a comedy
icon like Maxwell Smart has
to decide from the begin-
ning how close to parallel
his originator, the late Don
Adams. Carrell wisely chose
not to attempt to replicate
Adams' trademark sing-
song voice. Instead, he gives
us the ramrod posture, the
intense focus, and the ev-
er-suspicious thought pro-
cesses and crazy deductions
that were the hallmark of
Agent 86. Adams' Maxwell
Smart came as close to, a
Warner Brothers-style car-
toon character as is possible
for a live actor. Carrell slogs
through the film with all the
grim concentration of Bust-
er Keaton in his prime, and
the gags practically work
themselves.
Anne Hathaway likewise
scores a home run as Agent
99, originally played by Bar-
bara Feldon. In. the televi-
sion show, 99 had a hope-
less crush on Max. In the
film, the crush is reversed,
at first. Hathaway slinks
and kicks bad-guy backsides
like Emma Peel, -saving
Max's life more than once.
She's a good little hoofer,
too, in a very funny "dance
challenge" scene where she
and Max are undercover at
a posh soiree.
Alan Arkin is both funny
and truculent as the long-
suffering Chief, constantly
reacting to Max's leaps of
logic. Fans of the series will
be relieved to know that the
Cone of Silence is still there
- and still not quite working
- along with familiar faces


like Agent Larabee, android
Agent Hymie, and lonely
deep-field Agent 13, played
by Bill Murray's face. All
Max's famous lines catch-
phrases of their time are
intact, such as "Missed it
by that much," "Sorry about
that, Chief," and "Would you
believe...?"
Terence Stamp adds an-
other evil smoothie to his
film resume as KAOS super-
villain -Siegfried, a charac-
ter originally played by Ber-
nie Kopell with a burlesque
German accent. Stamp
dispenses with the accent,
playing Siegfried with dead-
pan menace and icy British
sarcasm. Part of his global
extortion plan involves deto-
nating a nuclear device in a
Hollywood concert hall. One
of his henchmen laments
the collateral deaths of so
many movie stars. "Oh yes,"
drawls Siegfried, "whatever
shall we do without their ra-
zor-sharp political advice?"
Dwayne (the Rock) John-
son adds a bit of innova-
tion as slick, sexy Agent 23,
Max's buddy and interna-
tional espionage star. John-
son has built up his action
and comedy chops over the
years, and he plays well


with the others, to say noth-
ing of filling out a tux (it's a
spy movie, of course there
are tuxes).
Segal directs the film
with plenty of action and
fisticuffs, glittery locations,
and some chase and confron-
tation scenes that would do
justice to a vintage James
Bond film. The original Mel
Brooks series was intended
as a spoof, not only of Cold
War spy-versus-spy she-
nanigans, but of the endless
spate of Bond and would-be
Bond films and. television
shows of its time, especially
their gimmickry. This film
features Swiss Army knives
containing mini-crossbows,
a surveillance drone dis-
guised as a housefly, and
a secret passage under the
Washington Monument's
reflecting pool. And there's
more.
"Get Smart" is a well-
executed, respectful tribute
to a comedy gem. The film
is dedicated to Don Adams,
who died in 2005. Segal,
Carrell and company have
done him, and Mel, proud.
Wherever Adams may be,
one can imagine him watch-
ing the film, "...and loving
it."

Injuries most commonly
associated with fireworks
are injuries involving hands
and fingers (31 percent),
eyes (25 percent), head and
face (20 percent), especially
to young children. Even
seemingly harmless spar-

For children under the age
of five, sparklers account for
three-fourths'of all fireworks
injuries. Fa.cinated by the

Following injuries, fire-

fires each year. Lighters,

the Fourth of July holiday.
A misguided bottle rocket
landing on a roof may start
a devastating fire.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, JUNE 26,2008


The past
t w o
weekends
brought
architecture,
the environ-
ment, art
and the
newest and
m o s t
innovative
concepts in home
building, to life on the
Emerald Coast. The
2008 Tour of Homes
took place June 13-22
at various locations
throughout the county,
but one house stood
out for many reasons.
------ 7------------- ;---------
It was like walking into a
house of the future, while
getting a sense of nostalgia.
I am'referring to the home
of Mark and Renee Carter
and their home "All Jazzed
Up," that takes one back to
the old days of the fishing
villages that surrounded
the Bay, while getting
glimpse of what the future
home has in store.
From the moment one
drives up on the circular
stone drive on East
Mitchell Avenue, the
setting of "old Florida"
appears with 100-year-old
moss-draped oak9 and
azaleas, surrounded by
newly-planted palms and,
flowers, to quietly welcome
guests. However, .when
walking into the foyer, one
realizes they are act ually in
an art gallery lit by an
apple and pear Murano
glass chandelier.
For the most part, the
outside of the home looks
like many other homes
along the coast, but the
inside of the home makes it
hard not to look in awe
with your mouth hanging
open. It is an
environmentally-friendly
home that not only appeals
to every age group, but has
been enriched by numerous
artists who put their hands
to work on the dwelling.
The home is all concrete
and steel construction,,
insulated with Isonene
foam, and can -withstands
winds up to 200 m.p.h.
Other homes have many of
these same 'features, but
the Carters' home goes a
few steps further.
The interior wall studs
were built from recycled
cars from junkyards and
*the Enviroglas counter-tops
and Enviroplank flooring
made of 100 percent
recycled sinks, bottles, and


toilets from landfills. The
floor actually uses 20-
percent glow in the dark
material, as well. It is
coral-colored by day and
aqua by night.
Cabinetry throughout the
home were also done by
hand and numerous
varieties of trees were
brought in from all over the
world. The wood has been
stained, painted, carved,
and added to the rooms to
add the finishing touches.
But the cabinets will be
about the only thing you
find that is wood, since no
wood was used in the
construction of the home
and only one old .oak tree
limb had to be removed to
make site of the new
structure.
The custom-designed
kitchen has some; very
impressive attributes that
include three islands and a
built-in small appliance
center that contains a wall-
unit fish 'tank, every
appliance imaginable,
dishwashers that ,are in
drawer units, a Wolf stove
that boils water in 30
seconds and many other
features that make this
home-of-tomorrow stand
out.
For every man that ever
desired a media room, the
Carters' home has. just
what you need. The media
room has a Panasonic 103
inch plasma television with
surround sound -
supposedly one of only
three in the state. It had to
be craned in with more
than a half dozen men
putting into place. It has
the feel of a movie theatre
including a bar, a drawer
micro-wave, a refriger-ator
and freezer and two roWs of
actual theater seats.
There is also a -dream-
come-true sewing room.
Here Renee can work on
her own style of artistic
quilt-making that she sells
and also has hanging on
the second level of the
handmade metal and glass'
stairwell.
What bathroom would be
complete without that have
facets with LED lights that
change color when the
water changes tempera-


ture. In
y the powder
|room down
stairs,
-_< ] S even a
faucet that
requires
"-t' you to
simply
wave your
hand
across the
handles,, and the water
pours into glass bowl.
These were top products
at the 2008 Kitchen and
Bath show this January in
Las Vegas. The custom-cut
glass in the master suite is
not only original, but ties
in the scenes of the ocean
with the urban feel of the
home that is 5,000 square
feet and includes four
bedrooms, four bathrooms,
a screened,-in upstairs
patio, a puppy wash and
grooming room, a living
room that is filled with
modern furnishings, one-of-
a-kind sculptures, and a
sunken hot tub on the
outside, lower deck. A
completed deck has a
professional grill and
outdoor cooking area,
another plasma television,
lounge furniture, and a bar
in the middle of the patio
that is lit by LED lighting.
The lot the Carters' built
on- was the land owned of
Mark Carters' father. After
his death nearly three
years ago, Mark inherited,
the Bay-front property.
One of the interesting
attributes of the property is
the two-car garage that
Carter and his father built
together in 1971. After
demolition of his father
and mother's home, Mark
and Renee Carter built
new except for that garage
that he redid to match the
house.
Other aspects, like
landscaping and a cuckoo
clock in the living room,
remind Carter and his
family about the life and
times with his mother and
father.

The event was sponsored
by The Building Industry
Association of Okaloosa
and Walton Counties and
showcases numerous
builders, contractors,
artists, designers and
decorators from the area.
The annual event
spotlights those in the
industry who have been a
prominent fixture on the
home-building scene, as
well as artisans from
around the world who have
found a new way to
showcase their craft.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, JUNE 26,2008


"Fuddy Meers" is no fuddy duddy


By LEAH STRATMANN
It is somewhat difficult
to review a play when it is
nearly impossible to talk
about plot. The reason much
can't be said about the plot
is it is a continually reveal-
ing plot and to say too much
is to say too much.
"Fuddy Meers," currently
onstage at Seaside Reperto-
ry Theatre, concerns one day


in the life of Claire, a victim
of a rare form of amnesia
resulting in each day being
a clean slate. After sleep,
she remembers nothing of
her life as it came before,
although she has flashes of
insight and memory during
her waking hours.
As Claire, Lacey Morgan
Renteria does an admira-
ble job of being a straight

sock puppet to Claire's face in the now playing production of
"Fuddy Meers" at Seaside Repertory Theatre. (Photo by Jill
Stapleton Bergeron).


woman to a cast of five other
distinct lunatics. Early in
the play she is kidnapped
from her home where she
lives with her fussy and
patient husband Richard
and son Kenny. Richard, as
portrayed by Dustin Hard-
ing, is a stiff upper lip kind
of guy with an inexplicable
somewhat other than Amer-
ican kind of accent. Harding
nails the character in body
language and precise speak-
ing.
Playing a troubled, dis-
affected pot-smoking teen
with issues, David McElwee
is both funny and poignant
in his scenes. Looking for
all the world as if he is 17,
McElwee perfects the teen
slouch and profane speech
of a kid who has had it with
life even as his has not yet
really begun.
Kidnapper David Hop-
kins, as the limping man,
tells Claire he is her brother
Zach and her husband is
trying to kill her. For rea-
sons to be revealed, the
limping man is blind in one
eye and deaf in one ear and
brandishes a manacle on
one wrist. Hopkins owns the
stage from the moment is
limps onto it. His speech is


impaired and loud and the
dialog hilarious.
Soon the limping man and
his sister arrive at the home
of their mother, a stroke vic-
tim with aphasia. As Gertie,
Jill Stapleton Bergeron mas-
tered the sounds of someone
not in total control of speech
and she does it with grace
and 61lan.
Enter Millet, also wear-
ing a manacle with a sock
puppet on the other hand.
Kevin Boyle as Millet, has a
weird way of standing with
one foot behind and askew,
with continuous revealing
and goofy dialog being ut-
tered by the puppet. His
bond with the puppet is in-
tense and somehow Boyle
makes it all seem sensible,
even as we know it is not.
It doesn't take Claire long
to realize that Millet and the
limping man have escaped
from jail. She may not have
many memories, but she is
not stupid. Meanwhile her
mother is desperately try-
ing to tell her something im-
portant, but limitations of
speech make this difficult.
Bergeron's frustration often
leads to 'profanity, which she
can elucidate to perfection.
When Richard and Kenny
realize Claire is gone, they

Hopkins in a scene from "Fuddy Meers," now playing at
the Seaside Repertory Theatre. (Photo by Jill Stapleton
Bergeron)


assume she is headed to her
mother's and take pursuit.
As Kenny slouches and hits
on doobie, Richard is trying
to explain to him why drugs
are bad and how he himself
had overcome such bad hab-
its to lead a rich and full life.
As they speed along, they
are stopped by a cruising
cop named Heidi, played by
a swaggering Anne Marie
Carroll, channeling Clint
Eastwood.
Ultimately, Kenny and
Richard take Heidi hos-
tage and continue the trip
to Mama's house to rescue
'Claire. The ensuing chaos
at grandmas reveals much


about the life of Claire, ex-
plains the meaning of Fuddy
Meers, and gives each of the.
characters a chance to take
center stage with admirable
and hilarious result.
This is a fast-paced play
and dialog-heavy. Written
by David Lindsay-Abaire
and superbly directed by
Mark Robinson, the play
offers an evening of laughs
and terrific performances
by every cast member. The
play will be performed at
Seaside Repertory Theatre
through July 26, Wednes-
days through Saturdays.
For tickets, call
231-3033.

and they are hard to catch."
Sunday has been successful
in finding owners offering
vacation rentals by. moni-
toring the Internet. "I found
one recently advertising on
craigslist," she said.
Sunday said some tax-
evaders are turned in by,
neighbors and from time to
time and rental agencies
have been known to notify
vacation rentals- by owner
(VRBO) of the county tax
regulations.
"You can find a lot of
them," she said, "but you
may never find, all of U them."
When tax-evaders are found,
Sunday shares the informa-
tion .with the Florida De-
partpient of Revenue and
vice-versa. She also works
closely with her counter-
parts in neighboring Oka-
loosa and Bay Counties.
The clerk's office is cur-
rently collecting the bed
tax for the month of May.
Property management com-
panies and individuals have
until the 20th day of the
following month to pay the
taxes. This information is
also used by the TDC to de-
termine the numbers of visi-


tors to the area.
Sunday noted the current
economic market is affecting
bed tax collections as well.
Although some 192 new
accounts have been added
since January of this year,
about 20 per month are de-
activated due to the sale or
the increasing number of
property foreclosures.
When someone is found
who has not been paying the
tax, the clerk's office typi-
cally sends the owner a let-
ter estimating the amount
of tax owed for the previous
three years. "We usually
send a high estimate, which
often brings the owner to
us sooner with the proper
amount owed."
The delinquent taxpayers
face a penalty of 10 percent
of the tax due, with a $50
minimum. Interest rates set
by the state are currently at
12 percent.
If there is no response to
the clerk's letter, non-com-
pliance can result in a lien
being placed on the proper-
ty. The last resort is a freeze
on the assets or outright sei-
zure of the property. "A lien
on the property will usually


result in somebody paying
up," Sunday noted.
Another component of
Sunday's duties include the
random auditing of property
management companies, by
far the largest payers of the
tax. One audit of a company
spanning two years resulted
in more than $40,000 be-
ing collected. "We use the
company's own accounting
software to pull the reports.
Companies should self-audit
from time to time-just to ver-
ify things are being handled
properly. Most of the errors
found are human errors, not
,an intent to defraud," she
said,,, .
Sunday is the solo en-
forcement persofi for the
office, although the office
recently hired an additional
staff person to do clerical
work, freeing Sunday to find
additional revenue generat-
ing accounts.

"People keep finding new
ways to try and avoid pay-
ing the tax," she said. Indi-
vidual investigations com-
prise most of the work. "The'
number is unknown and it
could be well over 1,000."

proximately $30,674,000
project is funded jointly by.

enue.
According to OWC Presi-
dent Bob Richburg, the com-
plex is the largest dollar-
value capital construction
project in the school's .44-
year history.
"The massive scale of this
facility will dominate the


western portion of the OWC
campus just as the OWC
Mattie Kelly Arts Center
does the eastern portion of
the campus," said Richburg.
"We are so pleased that the.
leadership of our legislative
delegation secured the state
funding for this important
community facility."

The groundbreaking cer-
emony come on the heels of
an announcement that OWC
will soon become a state col-
lege.
"This new center will cer-
tainly play into the notion of
what it means to be a state
university," said Richburg.

The Assessments have been proposed to fund 1) the unpaid original capital costs of the dredging
activities attributable to those parcels within the MSBU that did not voluntarily prepay their share of the
project costs, 2) additional capital costs incurred to complete the dredging activities which are attributable
to all lots within the MSBU and 3) ongoing annual maintenance costs for vegetation removal and related
services. The assessment for each parcel of property will be based upon the number of lots attributable to
such parcel. A more specific description is set forth in the Initial Assessment Resolution adopted by the
Board of County Commissioners on June 10, 2008. Copies of the Initial Assessment Resolution, the plans
and specifications for Dredging Activities, and the preliminary Assessment Rolls are available for inspection
at theWalton County Administration Office located at 117 Montgomery Circle, DeFuniak Springs between
the hours of 8:00 am to 4:30 pm, Monday through Friday.
The capital and maintenance assessments will be collected on the ad valorem tax bill commencing with
the tax bill to be mailed in November 2008, as authorized by Section 197.3632, Florida Statutes. The
capital portion of the assessments will be collected over a period of 10 years, commencing with the tax bill
mailed in November 2008. Failure to pay the assessment will cause a tax certificate to be issued against
the real property which may result in a loss of title.
If you have any questions, please contact Walton County Administration at (850) 892-8155, Monday
through Friday between the hours of 8:00 am and 4:30 pm.
Please be governed accordingly.

Contact the Office of Central Purchas-
ing for availability of drawings. Fee is
$175.00 non-refundable. If you have
previously purchased drawings for the
Miramar Beach Access Reconstruction
Project and/or the Miramar Beach Pub-
lic Parking North Project, then it won't
be necessary to purchase drawings
again. But both drawings must be ob-
tained in order to bid project.

All bidders/proposers must be present at
the designated start time of any pre-bid


conference and must remain until the con-
ference is adjourned. The County will not
accept bids/proposals from any bidder/
proposer arriving after the designated start
time as listed in the Invitation to Bids or
Request Proposal or departing prior to the
adjournment of the pre-bid conference.

The project consists of two parts located
at the Miramar Beach Regional Access
(2375 Scenic Gulf Drive Destin, FL) adja-
cent to the western side of Pompano Joe's
restaurant in western Walton County. The
first part of the project is the construction
of an approximately 1,100 linear foot long
concrete pile-supported parking deck on
the southern side of Scenic Gulf Drive.
The construction will require the removal
of the existing parking structure and all ac-
tivities necessary to reconnect utilities and
the restroom facility to existing systems.
The project also includes the relocation of
existing utilities and will require traffic con-
trol measures to be implemented on site
due to its proximity to Scenic Gulf Drive
(old Hwy. 98).

The second part of the project consists
of demolishing an existing asphalt park-
ing lot and repaving with a new parking
lot design. This parking area is located on
the north side of Scenic Gulf Drive across
from the western end of the parking deck,
and will serve as a staging area for the first
phase of the project. The existing northern
parking lot has asphalt, concrete curbing,
and gravel that will be demolished and
removed. There will be a minimum of 12"
of subgrade that will be required in addi-
tion to 8" of limerock base along with 2"
of SP-12.5 asphalt. The parking lot will
be sloped to allow the stormwater runoff
to collect in the open swales that will be
piped to a small pond in the northeast cor-
ner of the site. A4' tall timber retaining wall
will be constructed along two sides of the
pond for containment.

PROBLEMS FROM 1-C


VIOLATION CONTINUES FROM 1-C


elapsed for the permits to be
valid.
Hargett also told the
board members that a
structure lacking a build-
ing permit represents a code
violation. If such a violation
is not abated, the legal re-
quirement is for the owner
to demolish the structure
down to the foundation, he
added.
For the cases involving
the two unfinished homes,
the Code Enforcement Board
members unanimously ap-
proved motions finding the
owners in violation with re-
gard to duty of maintenance


and lack of building permits,
and directing them to secure
and clean up their property
to the satisfaction of a code
enforcement officer within
15 days.
The members also unani-
mously directed that the
owners apply for building
permits within a similar
time frame, or, failing that,
that the cases be referred to
the Walton County Building
Department for abatement.
The alleged violators are to
be charged a pro rata share
of the cost of their hearings,
and potential fines for non-
compliance were set at $25


per day.
The owner of the lot con-
taining the slab was found
in violation with regard .to
duty of maintenance for ma-
terials and .debris on his lot.
The board members voted
to direct him to clean up
his property within 30 days.
The owner is to be assessed
a pro rata share of the cost
of his hearing, and poten-
tial fines for noncompliance
were again set at $25 per
day.
There was no require-
ment for that owner to ob-
tain a building permit for
the slab to remain in place.


ers that the district will not
be responsible for repairs or
maintenance on property
owner's sides of the ditch,
nor will the district have
any responsibility for flood-
ing which may occur south
of the ditch.
There will be a special
meeting of SWCMCD at
9:30 a.m. on July 8 to final-
ize and approve the budget.


of dismissal, the case will
simply go away.
"The worst case scenario
here would be six months
salary and benefits, which is
about $60,000 plus the fees
for the SMCMCD attorney,"
Bytell said. Together, this
could cost the district a total
of $75,000.
Board member John Ma-
gee asked if there was a
way to budget that amount,
prompting board chairman
Jim Crawford to say, "We
don't have the money."
Bytell said with a pend-
ing lawsuit and no ready
money, if the case is won,
the district could ask to
make payments, but inter-
est will also have to be paid
and these funds need to be
kept in mind in terms of
next year's budget.
"My dilemma is this. We
have a possible financial
drain on this organization.
This is not a periding liti-
gation.that I feel should be
carried over in the budget
through escrow or some-
thing. The money was there
for his salary, but it wasn't
spent. Under our budgeting
process, shouldn't our bud-
get be amended?" asked Ma-
gee.
Current director Stephen
Sickerman noted there are
funds in reserve. "The cost
would be $58,600 to the for-
mer director for salary, plus
legal fees," he said. Sicker-
man said he would find out
if reserve funds could be
used for such a purpose.
The topic of employment
contracts was discussed.
Crawford said that D'Andrea
tried to make his contract
automatically renewable
and thus never ending. The
current director has no con-
tract, but has. yet to fulfill
his year-long probationary
period, thus a contract is not
needed at this time.
Magee disagreed saying
the director contract would
be carefully scrutinized and
would be part of the discov-
ery materials in the lawsuit.
"The.longer.that we .do not
produce a working contract,
it strengthens their case. By
delaying, we are strehgth-,
ening their position."
Crawford said the dis-
trict's attorney told him if
they sign a, contract now
with Sickerman, he is no
longer on probation. "The
new contract for the director
will be carefully written and
scrutinized. The outcome of
.the summary judgment will
affect the way the new con-
tract is written," Crawford
said.
Bytell said, I can write
a contract that will say any-
thing you want it to say. I
can write the language to be
as simple as possible."
Sickerman commented,
"In all honesty, I will do as
the board decides. Whether
we execute a contract sooner
or later, it doesn't matter to
me. I will do whatever the
board decides."
"Lawyers make a living
off of ambiguity," Bytell
noted. "I think we can avoid
this by making our position
clear and detailing how we
handle different situations.
This pending litigation is
based on one paragraph in
the contract saying he would


be given 30 days notice be-
fore termination. The term
of the contract had expired,
so notice was not legally
needed."
The issue of employee
handbooks was raised due
to some confusion about life
and health insurance for re-
tired employees. Apparently
some employees were given
handbooks which said those
benefits would continue af-
ter retirement, while others
have handbooks with differ-
ent information.
Sickerman said he con-
tacted two other mosquito
control districts and learned
that they do not offer health
insurance after retirement.
"Right now I don't have
any recommendations other
than a series of workshops
to change the handbook. The
current employee handbook
seems to have been cobbled
together," he said.
"We have a mess," noted
Crawford.
Magee concurred say-
ing, "We refer to policies
and procedures which gives
policies and procedures the
validity of a legal document.
New employees should sign
an employee manual and
a copy should be filed in
the, employment file of the
employee. The policy and
procedure manual makes
promises to the employee,
but there is nothing ensur-
ing the ability of the agency
to perform. Where is the
guarantee the money is go-
ing to be there for life insur-
ance and health benefits to
the retiree? There is none.
We need to go back and go
through it [the handbook]
and have it put together
properly so it has the valid-
ity of a legal document," Ma-
gee concluded.
In new business, Sicker-
man reported on the time
line sketched out for work
to move one of the mosquito
control ditches. This partic-
ular, ditch, number MC-28,
is likely to cause some fu-
ture problems, unless some
measures are taken no'w-to
prevent them.
The SWCMCD is sup-
posed to have a 25-foot set-
back from mosquito control
ditches. The current loca-
tion of MC-28 is wrong be-
cause of a scrivener's error,
which is why it is being
moved. At the present time,
the 25-foot buffer exists, but
somehow a developer was
given a development order
to build into the buffer zone.
Since the ditch was in the
wrong place, the correction
of location will take a chunk
off of several lots, making
them too small to build on,
and thus land which cannot
be sold.
Because the developer is
in possession of the devel-
opment order, the district's
hands are tied and with the
move, they will not have the
buffer they need. The devel-
oper was also given permis-
sion by Sickerman to erect
a temporary fence on the
easternmost property line,
which reduces the mainte-
nance access of the district
to 1-foot.
Board members pointed
out Sickerman did not have
the authority to grant the
developer this permission
and the proper procedure is
for people to make a written
request of the board, who
then researches the request
before granting. Sicker-
man said he took a tour of
the area and consulted with
Jason Bryan of the county
planning department be-
fore he agreed to the fence.
The board said regardless of
what the planning depart-
ment said, the fence should
not have been built, as now
the district has no mainte-
nance access to speak of.
The temporary fence has
been erected which forces
the district to make formal
notice to the property own-
