BCC eyes setting

heights for north

Walton county


By DOTTY NIST
Prior -to a temporary
height limit ordinance being
approved in November 2007,
there was no specific limit
on the height of new con-
struction north of the bay in
Walton County. The tempo-
rary ordinance set a 50-foot
height limit, uniform with
the limit that had existed
in south Walton County for
many years.
On June 30, the Walton
County Board of County


Rep. Brad

Drake

completes

first

legislative

session

By BRUCE COLLIER
, Rep. Brad Drake has com-
pleted his first session in the
Florida Legislature, which
ended the second week in
May, slightly past the nor-
mal time of adjournment.
"It took a little. bit of extra
time, we wanted to make
sure we did it right," said
Drake, who recently took
timeto speak with the Her-
ald on his freshman year in
Tallahassee.
Though this was his first
year in the lawmaker's seat,
Drake was no stranger to
the lawmaking process. .He
served as legislative assis-
tant to his predecessor, Rep.,
Don Brown, for seven years


Commissioners (BCC)' will
consider a proposal for sev-
eral height limits in north
Walton County, tied to land
use areas.
The source of the pro-
posed limits is the amend-
ments based on the county's
2006 evaluation and ap-
praisal report (EAR). The
amendments are also under
consideration by the county.
As proposed, a 40-foot

the service to. the public a
lot more than I do the cam-
paigning for the job," he
added. This backstage expe-
rience "shortened the learn-
ing curve tremendously,"

Florida tag and



title fees going



up September 1


Beginning on September
1, vehicle owners can expect
to pay more for tag and ti-
tling a vehicle in the state of
Florida. The fee increases,
which will be evident when
citizens step into their local'
Tax Collector's Office this
year to renew a license plate,
were enacted by the 2009
Florida Legislature and
signed off on by Governor
Charlie Christ. In some in-
stances, the fees have more
than doubled, with all of the
increased revenue being re-
mitted back to the state's


general revenue fund.
"Vehicle owners are go-
ing to see significant fee
increases when they come
in to renew their tags after
September 1. Individuals
can renew up to 90 days
prior to their birthday, and
I would encourage anyone
in that window to go ahead
and renew now to avoid the
additional fees," said Wal-
ton County Tax Collector
Rhonda Skipper. "There is
also the option of a two-year
renewal for those who want
to lock-in the current rate


for nrxt year too."
Some of the most signifi-
cant fee increases will be
with title work and initial
vehicle registration fees. An
original certificate of title
. currently costs $24, but as
of September 1, will cost $70
- a 192 percent increase.
The initial vehicle regis-
tration fee, which currently
costs $100 will cost $225, an
increase of 125 percent.
The most dramatic in-
crease will be for an original

Freeport looking for grant funds


By BEN GRAFTON
The brief Freeport City
Council meeting of June 9
opened with the report for
Fire and Rescue, as there
was no business presented
for city planning or legal.


Fire Chief Ben Greenslait
presented a written sum-
mary report which he said
would probably be done ev-
ery quarter in the future to
keep people better informed.
Greenslait said that in May


the department responded
to 71 calls, 40 of which were
for medical assistance. The
402 total calls for the year-
to-date through May con-
tinue to run well ahead of
the 349 calls answered dur-


ing the same period of last
year.
The fire hydrant mainte-
nance program is continu-
ing to move ahead.
The Council approved
Greenslait's request to ap-


ply for a grant under the
Federal Emergency Man-
agement Agency (FEMA)
program for modifications
to existing stations. He said

Pilcher expounds


on property


By ALICIA LEONARD
Maps, lots and lots of
maps are what one discov-
ers first about the Walton
County Property Apprais-
er's (WCPA) office. "We do a
lot of mapping and we have
a lot of maps," said WCPA
Patrick Pilcher, of Walton
County's own little piece of
Google-Earth.
Maps are also where
Pilcher started, "I start-
ed here drawing property
maps in 1986. I was elected
to office for the first time in
2000." Property maps are
still drawn by hand, Pilcher
added. The maps collected
by Pilcher's office are shared
with all authorities such as
.the 911 mapping system
that can use them.


Property lines and maps
are just a little piece of the
puzzle concerning Pilcher's
job and that puzzle is exceed-
ingly large. One of Pilcher's
duties is to locate, identify
and appraise all property
in Walton County, which
includes 79,000 real estate
parcels and 10,000 tangible
personal property accounts
for business.
Another duty of the ap-
praiser's office is to build
and maintain geographic
information system (GIS)
mapping, including a data-
bank of aerial photography.
Citizens can sign onto their
web site. and view property
in Walton as well as re-
search the appraisal price of
that property and seek past


selling prices.
Pilcher has two offices in.
the county, one located at the
Walton County Courthouse
and the other located at the
South Walton Courthouse
Annex. His office eihploys 34
people. "We are like family.
We try to laugh and not take
everything to heart, because
we have some tough dead-
lines to meet sometimes.
They always come through
and always preform. We get
along good and I am grate-
ful and appreciative of all
the hard work everyone here
does. We have an outstand-
ing group of people and I am
proud to work with them."

THIS IS A picture of Daniel Stone's property before an alleged run-in with neighbors and
the alleged retribution.


A RECENT PHOTO of the Stones'property sent out with a press release from the ACLU
Both ACLU and ACLJ contend that Holmes County had no right to take Stone's property
without good reason and compensation.


ACLU joins ACLJ in suit against Holmes County


By ALICIA LEONARD
Two neighbors and` one
Holmes County ..commis-
sioner have done what
many could not. They have
brought the American Civil
Liberties Union (ACLU) of
Florida and the American
Center for Law and Justice
(ACLJ) together. Both orga-
nizations, together, served
Holmes County a complaint
on June 8, on behalf of their
client, Daniel Stone. The
suit alleges that "county of-


Jeff .Barber, Executive
Director for USDA's Farm
Service Agency in Okaloosa
County, announced that
farmer and ranrihl~dgcan-
didate nominations began
SJune 15 for local Farm Ser-
vice Agency (FSA), county
committees. The nomi-
nation- period continues
through Aug. 3, 2009. Elec-
tions take place this fall.
"I encourage all producers
to participate in the county
committee election process
by nominating candidates
by the. August 3 deadline,"
said Barber. "We are count-
ing on as much participation
as possible, because county
committees are an impor-
tant link between the farm
community and the U.S. De-
partment of Agriculture. We
have seen a trend in recent
years of increased nomina-
tions of minority and women
producers and we hope that
will continue."
To be eligible to serve on
an FSA county committee, a
person must participate or
cooperate in a program ad-,
ministered by FSA, be eligi-
ble to vote in a county com-
mittee election and beside
in the local administrative
area in which the person is
a candidate.
Producers may-also nom-
inate themselves, and orga-
nizations representing mi-


ficials abused their power by
destroying and taking part
of Stone's property in an act
of retribution."
Benjamin James Steven-
son; ACLU staff attorney
based in Pensacola, stated
."the government cannot just
take 'someone's property
without a good reason and
compensation - that's,'why
we have eminent domain
laws in Florida."
According to the suit afid
press release regarding the


nority and women may also
nominate candidates. To
become a nominee, eligible
individuals must sign form
FSA-669A. The form and
other 'valuable information
about FSA county commit-
tde ..elections' are. :available
in the Okaloosa County FSA
Office or online. Nomination
forms for the 2009 election
must be postmarked or re-
ceived in the local USDA
.Service Center by close of
business on Aug. 3' 2009.

tion programs, emergency
programs, commodity price


case, the dispute started be-
tween neighbors and esca-
lated when, according to the
release, "one neighbor call-
ing in a favor to Jim King,
a, friendly commissioner, to
exact revenge on Mr. Stone
by. widening the neighbor's
private access on his proper-
ty into what the county npow
claims is a county road."'
. The suit also, contends
that, "In .2006; Mr: Stone's
fiancee, Rebecca 'Hagan,
called in a complaint about


support loan programs and
other important agricul-
tural issues. Members serve
three-year terms. Nation-
wide, there are more than
7,800 farmers and ranchers
serving on FSA county com-
mittees. Committees consist
of three to five members who
are elected by eligible local
producers.
FSA will mail ballots to
producers beginning , Nov.'
6. The voted ballots are due,
back to the local county of-
fice either via mail or in per-
son by Dec. 7, 2009. Newly-
elected committee members
and alternates take office

less speed on the ease-

his property - near where
his children were playing -
that leads to the neighbor's
property. Later that same
month, the county road de-
partment began grading the
easement and eventually
widened the two-tire track
to a 30- and, in some cases,
a 40-foot-wide dirt road.
"The county's widening
of the private access on Mr.
Stone's property not only
unlawfully took away prop-
erty for which he has not
been compensated., but they
destroyed natural and land-
scaped -trees, .and crushed
parts of the septic system.
These are all.real damages,
and the county should reim-
burse Mr. Stone for the loss,
stop grading the access, and
return it to how it was be-
fore," Stevenson continued.
"Through. numerous
encounters with Commis-
sioner King and the county,

easement cease, and they
were told that not only did
he have no intention of stop-
ping the construction, but
that it was indeed being
done as a personal favor to
the adjacent property own-
er, Mr. Harris.
"The government officials
overstep their bounds when
they improve private prop-
erty with county funds as a
favor for one citizen and to
spite another," said Larry
Crain, ACLJ senior attor-
ney and lead litigator. "That
is an abuse of an official po-
sition and against the basic
tenets . we hold as Ameri-


cans.
"The county claims that
it has maintained the ease-
ment located on Mr. Stone's
property, when in fact pho-
tos show that the access was
unmaintained prior to the
grading that began in No-
vember 2006."
Phone calls placed by
the DeFuniak Springs Her-
ald editorial staff seeking
comment from the Holmes
County Commissioner on
the suit were not returned.

Supple busy planning Freeport July 4 event


Freeport's new park di-
rector, Shane Supple, is a
busy man these days, bring-
ing his energy, creativity
and passion to make Free-
port's parks and recreation
facilities full service, which
includes all kinds of special
events and attractions. One
of the projects he is working
on is this year's Fourth of
July event.
Supple met Freeport Fire
Chief Ben Greenslait, Assis-
tant Chief Tom Palmer and
Pastor John Fogarty last


Tuesday to discuss some of
the possibilities. The date
set for the event is Satur-
day, July 4. The day will
begin with a Freeport Free-
dom parade, which will be-
gin at 10 a.m. at the Free-
port Middle School, wind
its' way through town to the
East Bay Loop entrance of
Hammock Bay and on to the
Freeport Regional Sports
Complex. There, a menager-
ie of fun and festivities will
await everyone with the of-
ficial time being from 12 to
6 p.m., but the public is free


to stay later
Supple is arranging for all
kinds of activities to be go-
ing on at the complex. Here
is small portion of what he
dreams of going on at the
event: blow-up games, scav-
enger hunt, clowns, music
and musicians, arts activi-
ties, recreation activities,
huge slip-n-slide, helicop-
ter rides, three-on-three
basketball tournament and
free throw shootout, fishing
casting contest, water bal-
loon sling shots, paint ball,
food, food and more food.


.It's a great opportunity for
businesses, churches, orga-
nizations, entertainers, mu-
sicians, artists and clubs to
come out, have a booth and
an activity for kids: games,
'art, puppet show, clowns,
etc. The sky is the limit, and
that may even happen with
a ball-drop for prizes from a
helicopter.
This event is open to ev-
eryone. Anyone wishing to
come and set up a booth to
promote themselves has the
option of paying a $100 en-
trance fee, or recruit volun-


teers to help with presched-
uled events or come up with
their own type of activity, en-
tertainment, game, or craft
to host from their booth. Ad-
mission to the park is free.
This will be a good time to
spend with friends, family,
neighbors and visitors.
What Supple needs most
is for everyone to come
out, help and participate
at whatever level they can.
Whether it be purely to vol-
unteer with things already
planned or come out with
your own type of attraction
or activity, Supple needs


to hear as soon as possible.
The more everyone is will-
ing to put into it the better
it will be, but it takes ev-
eryone together to make the
event great.
Anyone interested in help-
ing out, participating in any
way, or who needs more in-
formation should give Free-
port Parks Director Shane
Supple a call immediately
at 835-2822 to get the ball
rolling. Those who have an
entry for the parade should
call Chief Ben Greenslait or
Assistant Chief Tom Palmer
at 835-2192.

A thousand mile



journey or



a single step?


By RON KELLEY

When I say Eglin Air Force Base, most people think of
airmen, fighter jets, bombing runs, tactical training and
space surveillance. Well, it is all that and a lot more, as
I was privileged to discover last year as an honorary com-
mander. What many people don't know is that Eglin also
means ski. trips, scenic tours, canoeing, hunting, fishing,
parachuting and even swimming with manatees.
Eglin's proud 96th Services Squadron offers year-round
outdoor activities for the whole family, including camping,
picnics, a pool and a full-service marina with a large fleet of
rental boats.
With the nation's economy lurching from bailout to bail-
out, many families are opting to take a vacation in their
backyard and there couldn't be a better place to do that
than right here on the Emerald Coast - the very place that
thousands of tourists flock to visit every year because of the
dazzling beauty of the area and its splendid amenities.
Don't you deserve all that, too?
Eglin has everything you need to please the whole fam-
ily. Eglin's Outdoor Recreation program is amazing.
The Eglin Natural Resources Branch, locally known as
Jackson Guard, manages the vast natural resources found
throughout the 464,000-acre Eglin reservation. Approxi-

Letes oheE it


Editor:
No stimulus, no employment. All squandered before it
even reaches the people.
We have the transparent industrial park with a new
hidden tenant every year, in Mossy Head.
The million-dollar fancy chamber magazine says they've
got their eye on a million-dollar stimulus, back to the beach
it goes. Create a non-profit, get a grant and beautify the
median. But it's for the whole county.
I've been lied to about employment and no one has a


real answer on paving Seven Oaks.
The essential single employee still parks at the commis-
sioner's office, driven back and forth to the beach, the ben-
efit, of being close to the residence. Its even got an orange
light on to justify. Looks like plenty of room for bus trans-
portation.
Good luck to the new economic fellow, don't get hood-
winked.

GATOR IN CUSTODY: Shown are Deputy Sheriffs Richard Huxhold and Jason Leddon, with alligator found in Pax-

Alligator captured in Paxton


The Walton County Sher-
iffs Office (WCSO) received
a call around 9:15 p.m. on
June 6 from a Paxton resi-
dent that a 15-foot alligator
was sitting in the middle
of the road in a residential
neighborhood. When depu-
ties arrived they discovered
that indeed an alligator had
made its way down Adams
Street and was lying in the
grass on the side of the road.
The alligator turned out to
be 10 feet 10 inches long and
. .weighed over 350 pounds.
Deputy Sheriffs Richard
Huxhold and Jason.Leddon
.-contained the alligator with

be restrained for public safe-
ty until the trapper arrived.
Officer Randall Brooks with
Florida Fish and Wildlife
explained what needed to be
done to restrain the animal.
Alligators are generally slow
on land, but can lunge short
distance very quickly. The
entire situation had to be ap-
proached with extreme cau-
tion. Along with the help of
the two deputies Brooks was
able to slip a rope around
the head of the 'gator and
pull the 'gator into the road-
way where the officer and-
deputies could restrain the
animal properly. The officer
and deputies had to jump on
the back- of the 10-foot alli-
gator to get the tape around
the mouth and legs. Once
the mouth was taped shut
the feet were then taped so
the alligator could not move
or bite. Alligators have the
strongest bite of any living
animal, so for public safety
it was imperative that the


animal's mouth be secured.
The deputies .remained
with the animal until the
trapper could arrive and
take control of it. In 2008,
the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Commission received more


than 14,000 nuisance alli-
gator complaints. Trappers
are contracted to remove
specific nuisance alligators.
It is illegal for the general
public to kill, capture, or re-
locate nuisance alligators..

HEALTH MATTERS


"H.O.W." recovery works


By JOHN BROUSSARD
"The sting in any rebuke
is the truth," said Benjamin
Franklin.
"You are looking at the
problem." - A statement
over a full-length mirror in
a half-way house where I
once lived.
"The truth will set you
free, but first it will p--- you
off!" says Joel, the counsel-
or who helps the women in
their recovery at the Path of
Grace.
How does recovery work?
Why is it that so few (per-
haps 2 to 10 percent of all
alcoholics and addicts) find
their way to\a joyous and
free new life while the vast
majority seem hopeless and
perish from the same dis-
ease?
Simply put, the formula
for success has three ingre-
dients, each absolutely es-
sential. It. is a recipe that
anyone can follow. Of course
the individual must be prop-
erly motivated. When that
is the case and the formula
is employed, without alibis
or shortcuts, recovery from


addiction and a transformed
life is the result.
HOW is an acronym made
up of these magic ingredi-
ents:
H stands for honesty (and
humility)
0 stands for open-mind-'
edness and having faith
that others can guide us
into the actions we need to
change -realizing that our
own "best thinking" got us
into this mess. We need to
seek outside wisdom to get
out of it.
W stands for willingness
to take whatever action nec-
essary, to go to any lengths
to overcome the addiction
and escape the hell of our
own creation..
Simple isn't it? If only the
long-sought cure for cancer
(equally fatal) were that
simple. It is not, however,
easy. The biggest obstacle to
this process is the ego, which
with its ally pride usually
sabotages, the majority of
those who desperately need
to change.
EGO is anotheracronym
- edging God out. Another


way of looking at it is that
our ego causes us to "play
God" in our lives. Evidently,
for alcoholics, this simply.
doesn't work.
Alcoholics need a mental
."regime change," a complete
new administration to bring
about "change we can believe
in." Perhaps God would be a
good candidate. GOD is also
an acronym. It can start as a
"group of drunks" (AA meet-
ings), or some prefer "good
orderly direction."
Nobody wants to change
unless they have to, and it
usually it takes unendur-
able pain for an addict, to
become properly motivated.
Even knowing death is the
inevitable result usually
isn't enough, but pain will
get the ball rolling. Recov-
ery is the threshold of a new,
wonderful and fulfilling life
of many rewards, but we
.have to be driven through
that door, against our wills,
by pain that most could: not
deal with for even a minute.
We call it "The Gift of
Desperation" anid that is the
truth,

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, JUNE 18, 2009

INSTALLATION of officers was held at the DeFuniak Springs Post of the Veterans of Foreign Wars.



DeFuniak Springs VFW Post 4437 holds

installation of officers ceremony


On Saturday, June 6,
with family and friends were
in attendance, an installa-
tion of officers was held at
the DeFuniak Springs Post
of the Veterans of Foreign
Wars.
The 2009-10 slate of of-
ficers was inducted by Re-
tired Navy Captain Bonnie
Bonner. She began the cer-
emony on a humorous note,


HEIGHTS

north county height limit
would be set for construc-
tion in residential areas, a
75-foot limit for construction
in commercial areas, and a
100-foot limit for construc-
tion in industrial areas.
Of the three, the proposed
40-foot limit for residen-
tial has brought forth the
most reaction and comment.
There have been comments'
by commissioners and the
public in favor ,of keeping
the residential height limit
uniform with the 50-foot one
existing in south Walton.
County Commission
Chair Sara Comander also
commented that it should
be a priority to ensure that
uses such assilos andm oth-
er farinm strii&ul res re not
hampered in agricultural
areas.
Pat Blackshear of Walton
County Planning and Devel-
opment Services said ,that
the 40-foot recommenda-
tion associated with not h
Walton' County residential
uses was the result ofpublic
input during workshops as-
sociated with the proposed
EAR-based amendments.
The temporary height
limit ordinance for north
Walton County had sunset
on May 27, but on May 26
the BCC had voted to direct
staff not to accept any devel-
opment applications involv-
ing construction in excess of
50 feet.
Blackshear had' recom-
mended that the. BCC hold
public hearings to renew the
temporary ordinance until
such time as height limits
had been approved for north
Walton County through the
EAR-based amendments
and the period for challenge'
of the amendments had ex-
pired. In accordance with
that recommendation, the
BCC had set and advertised-
a public hearing for June 9
for consideration of a height
limit ordinance "for all of
Walton County."
However, on June 9, Dis-
trict 3 Commissioner Larry
Jones said he was uncom-
fortable looking at extend-
ing the 50-foot temporary
height limit ordinance,
which he called a "skeleton
ordinance." He moved to
continue consideration of
the height limits until the
June 30 BCC meeting, at
which the limits proposed
for north Walton County in
the EAR-based documents
would be considered.
His motion was approved
unanimously. The June 30
BCC meeting is scheduled
to begin at 4 p.m. and take
place in the Walton County
Courthouse in DeFuniak
Springs.
The proposals to be con-
sidered at that meeting do
not involve changes to the
50-foot height limit for south
Walton County. The pro-
posed EAR-based amend-
ments also call for that limit
to remain in place, with the


pointing out that it wasn't
every day that a- former
Navy nurse inducts a for-
mer Navy hospital corps-
man, both as veterans of the
Vietnam War.
Outgoing Post Command-
er Jack Sipos assisted her
as she reminded the elected
and appointed officers of
their duties and responsi-
bilities.


A unique step in the cer-
emony occurred when in-
coming Commander Ken
Winchel grasped the Ameri-
can flag in his left hand. Each
of the other officers placed
their left hand on the shoul-
der of the- next man, symbol-
izing contact with the flag.
Positioned in this fashion,
each officer then raised his
right hand and repeated the


oath of office issued by Cap-
tain Bonner.
Other newly inducted offi-
cers include Norris Knowles
- senior vice-commander,
Bruce Regan - junior vice-
commander, Robert Ful-
lenkamp - quartermaster,
David Reid - service officer,
Herbert Beck - chaplain,
Larry Manning - surgeon,
Jerry 'Nelson - first year
trustee, Thornm Brooks - sec-
ond .year trustee, Bill Vor-
wald - third year trustee.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, JUNE 18, 2009


WALTON COUNTY Commission Chair Sara Comander
and DeFuniak Springs City Manager Kim Kirby spoke to
county and city employees about the much-needed and ap-
preciated jobs they perform to make citizens' lives easier.


Naked driver arrested


During a traffic stop,
north of DeFuniak Springs
on the evening of June 16,
Walton County Sheriffs
deputies. encountered a-
drunk, naked driver.
A pick-up truck being.
driven by Dearry Smiley,
58, of DeFuniak Springs,
was parked off the shoul-
der partially blocking traffic
on County Highway 1883.
Upon .approaching the ve-
. V-,


hicle the deputy noted that
Smiley was wearing only
a hat, sunglasses and tan
sandals. Smiley reportedly
remarked to the deputy,
"What's wrong with a man
driving home naked, it's not
against the law." The officer
noted the smell of alcohol.'
A woman in the front pas-
senger seat, Phyllis Cumbie,
47, began yelling profanity
at officers. Alcohol was not-


ed coming from her breath.
When the deputy tried to re-
move her from the car, she
struck him with her fist. He
was not injured, and she was
handcuffed at the scene.
Smiley was booked for
' driving under the influence,
and Cumbie faces a felony
battery on a law enforce-
ment officer charge. Bbth
were booked into the Wal-
ton County Jail.

Caulking and weather-stripping can reduce your energy costs.
The Energy Experts at Gulf Power can teach you lots of ways to save energy,
which is-a good thing. Because saving energy means saving money. Some
of the things you can do around your house are really easy to do and,
don't cost much at all. Like making sure you have the right caulking and
weather-stripping around your windows and doors. You'd be surprised
at how much energy can be lost to even the smallest gaps and spaces
around all of your panes and frames. So change the way you look at the
windows and doors in your house. And consider replacing your caulking
and weather-stripping. Because a little change will do us good.

PILCHER

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1-A


many changes approved by
the Florida Legislature that
will keep his staff extra busy
for the next two years.
Nine of those employees
work full-time in the field,
appraising property in per-
son. Pilcher said the pro-
liferation of meth labs had
increased his .concern for
employees out in the field.
"We keep in constant con-
tact with our field apprais-
ers and they have schedules
set out so we know where
they are. Sometimes we run
across someone who doesn't
want us out there.' In 'that
case, we still have to ap-
praise the property, even
if we have to do it from the
street." Pilcher said typical-
ly, appraisers do not go into
homes,' but measure square
fqotage and the state ofthe
home from the outside.
� One of the largest jobs
Pilcher and company have
is required by Florida law.
The annual Property As-
sessment Roll is due to be
submitted to the Florida De-
partment of Revenue by July
1 each year. Property value
totals are submitted to the
taxing 'authorities (county
commission, city, schools,.
fire districts) as well.
The increasing property
values of the last five years,
before the market crash,
has kept Pilcher and crew
busy, too. "When you have
values escalating from 40
to 100 percent in one year,
that causes some problems
when people get their taxes.
We don't set those values.
That's what the market said
and we are basically histo-
rians of that market. We do
not establish or set the mar-
ket, we follow what hashap-
pened. Property taxes ,are
paid in arrears."
Pilcher hits onh a little-
know fact, that apprais--
als on property values this
year are set on the prior
year's value. They actually
run a year behind market
prices, which leads to some
upset citizens sometimes.
"Even though' property val-
ues have plunged, if some-
one's property was still up
last year according to the
market, that is the assess-
ment value this year. That's
tough and we do everything
we can to explain how our
office works. The property
tax roll for 2009 is based on
the 2008 market."
Property tax fraud is an-
other area that Pilcher's of-
fice deals with, but lessathan.
one might think. "We have
people who research this
full time. We actually find
very little fraud. Maybe 10
percent is on purpose. Most
of the time we find that the
people have taken the steps,
but their previous states or
prior residences have not
removed them from their
rolls.
The volatility of the mar-
ket increases the work for
the appraiser's office. More
movement by the market
means more analyzing.


Pilcher said that the market
in DeFuniak has remained
stable overall, "We have
not seen the big bump here
that we saw in the south
end and the market had not
slumped here in DeFuniak,
but stayed rather stable,"
explained Pilcher.
Other responsibilities in-
clude deed processing, data
entry, field appraisals/re-
views, system management
and exemptions adminis-
tration. Pilcher's office, as
other constitutional offices,
strive to work together, but
independently of each other.
"This office belongs to the
taxpayer. We only gather
the information for the prop-
er authorities, so they can
do their job," Pilcher added.
Pilcher said one of the
best parts of his job is inter-:
action with the public. "I get
to hear some interesting sto-
ries. It always amazes me
how you can meet a stranger,
start talking and walk away
kindred spirits. People are
so amazing. Sometimes peo-
ple come in and talk turns
away from property and they
start talking about some-
thing closer to their heart,
like maybe some problems
and then when they leave,
they turn and say, 'thank
you for listening to me' and
I always feel blessed after
those interactions. I think,
'no, thank you' because my
interaction with them keeps
my own stuff in perspec-
tive."
Pilcher said customer
service is a big part of the
job. "We, as employees,
sometimes need to stop and
remember that we should
be happy to have a job; That
mindset needs to carry over
to how we treat the public.
If someone wanders into our
office and needs help, even if
it's something we don't han-
dle, we try to point them in
the right direction. If people
need help, then help them if
you can."
Pilcher entered into his
third term at the beginning
of this year and said he -is
thankful, "I am so grateful
for the trust and confidence
the voters and. residents of
Walton County have placed
in me. I strive to do the best
job possible.
"Sometimes the things
written in the statute books
are tough. It's tough to have
to follow them sometimes,
but our job is to follow them
and try and treat everyone
the same. If you do that, you
will have people that might
be unhappy sometimes, but
they can't say we treated
them unfairly. We strive to
be fair and treat everyone
with respect. If you don't un-
derstand something about
how your property was as-
sessed or have other ques-
tions, call, sign on or come
in. Our door is always open,"
Pilcher said with a smile.

NWFSC trustees approve new budget and student fees


The Northwest Flori-
da State College board of
trustees has approved a
$29,735,969 college general
operating budget for the
2009-10 fiscal year, which
begins July 1, 2009. While
state appropriations to the
college decreased by $1.4
million this year and were
previously cut significantly
in the two prior fiscal years,
the college presented a bal-
anced budget which had no
cuts, to programs, student
services or staff - unlike
many other colleges in Flor-
ida who have made program
cuts and staff layoffs.
The $1.4 million decrease
in state appropriations was
offset somewhat by appro-
priation of federal stabili-
zation funds, for a net de-
crease in state and federal
funding of $313,908. All lev-
els of funding allocated for
instruction, student servic-
es, library and similar func-
tions remained the same or
increased slightly to serve
the college's growing stu-
dent population of nearly
16,000 students annually.
Included in the budget is
a state-approved $8.95 per
credit hour increase in stu-
dent tuition and fees that
maintains NWFSC's sta-
tus as the college with the
lowest total student fees
in Florida of any public or
private college or univer-
sity. Trustees also approved


continuing NWFSC's status
as the only college among
Florida's 28 community and
state colleges that does not
charge a student activities
fee. NWFSC student tu-
ition and fees will increase
from $66.78 per credit hour
to $75.73 per credit hour
for most associate degree
courses and from the cur-
rent $79.81 per credit hour
for baccalaureate programs
to $89.39 per credit hour for
upper division coursework.
For a typical three-credit
college course at the associ-
ate degree level, students
will now pay $227.19 as op-
posed to the current $200.34.
A typical full-time student
enrolled in 12. credits per
term for the academic year
would therefore experience
a total increase of $214.80
per year - from $1,602.72 to
complete one year of studies
at the college to $1,817.52.
A bachelor's degree student
enrolled full time would now
pay $229.92 more per aca-
demic year.

The college's budget
does not include any sal-
ary increases for college
employees, but does allow
staff two additional days off
during the college's normal
one-week closure at Spring
Break. Staff previously
worked during a portion of
Spring Break when faculty
and students were off.


In other action, the trust-
ees approved a resolution
which will allow the college
to begin the research and
development for possible
expansion of existing bac-
calaureate programs to add
up to four new bachelor's
degrees in general business,
information technology,
public service and educa-
'tional studies.
The college has suc-
cessfully offered bachelor's
degrees since 2004 and cur-
rently offers five bachelor's
degrees in the fields of man-
agement, education and
nursing. The college was
accredited as a bachelor's
degree: granting institution
by the Southern Association
of Colleges and Schools in
2003.
College interim president
Dr.. Jill White noted that
there is no timetable at pres-
ent for the college to begin
to offer the four additional
bachelor's degrees. "Today's
board authorization allows
us to begin the process-to
get the ball rolling - to de-
velop these future offerings
for our local community."
Trustees also accepted
the college's annual finan-
cial audit for the fiscal year
ending June 30, 2008, by
the State of Florida Auditor
General. The audit reflects
a clean opinion with no find-
ings.

a lot heavier" as the elected
official.
Drake credits his prior
experience with helping
him to accomplish things
that might not otherwise
have been realistic goals
for a typical freshman leg-
islator. "I was able to insert
$20 million for the small
county outreach program,,
which is a road-paving proj-
ect for small counties...to
receive equivalent match-
ing dollars from the state
for small county road proj-
ects." Drake's interest in
transportation, agriculture
and natural resource is-
sues led him to ask, and
receive, five committee as-
signments from the Speaker
of the House: agriculture
and natural resources policy
committee, roads, bridges
and ports policy committee,
transportation and economic
development appropriations
committee, state and com-
munity college and work-
force policy committee, and
a joint legislative committee
on intergovernmental rela-
tions. "The Speaker...always
asks for our input on where
we'd like to serve...."
Drake's first session was
dominated by one overarch-
ing issue. "The number-one
issue this year was economic
recovery. All the other ancil-
lary struggles thatwe have
as a state...hinges on having
to navigate through a tough
economic time." Drake con-
siders transportation ,and
infrastructure were "key to
economic recovery." He was
able to take funds from a
pool of money dedicated to
road resurfacing projects
(many in south Florida) and
put them into small county
road construction projects.
"I went in there as quick as
I could and got my money
put in. place for small coun-
ties:...it's all a negotiated
process, and the later in the
game you get, the more dif-
ficult it becomes in trying to
get. your accomplishments
met." As the session draws
to a close, "everything that's
pending becomes a negotiat-
ing tool. You don't .ant to
be stuck in a position where
something that's very im-
portant to you may get ne-
gotiated out for something
that's important to someone
else...."
Other accomplishments
included passing three bills
- of a total of six that he
sought :to get passed. One
reduced some unnecessary
permitting requirements for
"CHELCO-type" electric,co-
op companies in self-insur-
ance regulations. Another
(the "Anthony Forgionie
Act") reformed procedures in
Baker Act situations where
a person has been commit-
ted to a receiving facility
under the Baker Act and at-
tempts to leave the facility.
This came in response to the
2008 killing of an Okaloosa
County sheriffs deputy, An-
thony Forgione, by.a Baker
Act subject that had left
suchoa facility. The third bill
eliminated a pending sunset
provision and made perma-
nent the already-enacted ap-
plication procedures (includ-
ing criminal record checks)
for firearms purchases.
The ghost of legislation
past returned to the ses-
sion in the form of prop-
erty insurance reform.
Drake's predecessor, Rep.
: Don Brown, was one of two
lawmakers who objected to .
the reforms enacted in the
property insurance reform
bill. Drake commented that
Brown's arguments that
the reform would not work,
are now being adopted and
made by "an overwhelming
majority of the legislators,"
that "we need to go back an
undo" what was done. "Ba-
S by-steps" reform is in prog-
ress, "but it's a small step."
A bill was passed that
allows insurers to offer "a
specific type of insurance
[residential property insur-
ance] that would be outside.
the purview of the Office


of Insurance .Regulation in
referring to those rates as
'excessive,' and it would be
up to the consumer to de-
cide whether or not he or
she wanted to purchase that
type of insurance product.
That bill is currently in front
of the governor. The word is
that he may veto it."
Drake later confirmed
that the governor had not
received the bill at the time
of this interview.
An override would require
a 2/3 vote in both chambers.


"The problem is convinc-
ing both presiding officers
to bring it up as an issue.
I don't know when the last
time a bill or budget item
veto has been overridden....
It hasn't been done in the
past 10 years, I know."
Drake said that there was
"overwhelming support" for
the bill, which was passed
105 -13 in the House, and 27
- 9 in the Senate. The bill re-
quires the insurers offering
such policies to furnish proof
to the state of fiscal sound-
ness - including specified


surpluses - to meet potential
claims on those policies. The
bill requires that consumers
must request such policies.
Even if passed, Drake calls
the bill a "weakened hybrid
form of insurance deregula-
tion."
The "king issue" of the
session, according to Drake,
was how to make $6 billion
in budgetary cuts, while
obeying the state's consti-
tutional mandate of a bal-
anced budget. Health care
for medically-needy Florid-
ians was fully funded, $30
million was appropriated
for a first-time home buy-
ers program, and funding
was secured to offer "entice-


THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, JUNE 18, 2009


ments" to attract businesses
to locate in Florida.
Also addressed was clos-
ing the "double-dipping"
provision under which some
elected officials and state
employees would retire, sit,
out 30 days, then return to
work collecting both salary
and pension. "After a lot of
public interest had evolved
in that area, we went back
and we closed that loop-
hole." Classroom funding
per-student for Walton
County showed a 4.56 per-
cent increase, "in hard dol-
lars, that's about about $2.2
million."
Disappointments includ-
ed Drake's attempt to ex-


pand a bill for funding new
road surfacing projects to
include resurfacing projects
as well, a bill that "didn't
make it." Stretching avail-
able funds required "dili-
gence," and not everything
got as much attention as he
might have wanted.
On the legal problems of
Rep. Ray Sansom, Drake
said, "I hope and I pray that
the truth will come out and
the truth will show that
Rep. Sansom is vindicated
from many of the allegations
that have been made toward
him."
Between now and the fall
session, Drake is occupying
his time with constituent


needs. "I'm basically being a
customer service represen-
tative for people that have
needs with state agencies.
I'm very grateful for the
opportunity to serve," he
added. "I enjoy being avail-
able and accessible to people
whenever they call." A s
for what he likes least about
his job, Drake quotes his
grandfather, a former state
legislator who once went on
the record saying, "There's
too much politics in poli-
tics.'-

Drake promises, "If I get
a chance to re-quote him on
the House floor next year,
I'm going to do that."

Roadway to




historic Fort




Pickens re-opened


By JEFFREY POWELL
As of Friday, May 22, ve-
hicular traffic can once again
access historic Fort Pick-
ens, just east of Pensacola
Beach. The roadway, that
leads to the fort had been
closed since being damaged
by Hurricane Ivan in 2004
and Hurricane Dennis in
2005. The seven-mile drive
on property that is part of
the Gulf Islands National
Seashore is subject ts flood-
ing and damage due to its
proximity to both the Oxlf of
Mexico and Pensacola Bay.
Named after R.evolu-
tionary War hero General
Andrew Pickens, the for-
tress was built using over
21.5 million bricks, most of
which were locally produced
in the Pensacola area. Con-
struction began in 1829 and
was overseen by West Point
graduate Major William
Henry Chase. The fort was
completed five years later
by black laborers.
Fort Pickens is the larg-
est of four forts meant to de-
fend the mouth of Pensacola
Bay and the adjacent Navy
Yard. Life in the fo.ts was
relatively uneventfulI until
the 'American Civil War,
when Confederate soldiers
controlling the mainland
threatened to take Fort
Pickens, located on Santa
Rosa Island. Several at-
tempts were made to take
the Union bastion but none
were successful. Fort Pick-


ens remained in Federal
hands throughout the con-
flict.
During the late 1800s the
fort was home to several
American Indian prisoners.
On. the morning of Oct. 25,
1886, a train carrying 16
Apache men and their fami-
lies arrived in Pensacola.
.The men were separated
from their loved ones and
sent to the f6rt. Among the
men that were held prisoner
at the fort were Geronimo
and Naiche, the youngest
son of Cochise. Many tour-
ists and visitors came over
from Pensacola to see these
unfortunate residents of the
fort. The men were later
re-united with their fami-
lies and sent to Fort Sill in
Oklahoma. One of Geroni-
mo's three wives is buried
at Fort Barrancas National
Cemetery on the Pensacola
Naval Air Station.
Today, visitors to the
area can see the pentagonal
edifice at their own pace and
imagine the life and times of
past residents. Both guided
and self-guided tours are
available with park person-
nel on hand to answer ques-
tions. Camping, snorkeling
and a fishing pier are also
part of he activities visi-
tors can enjoy. For more in-
formation concerning Fort
Pickens call (850) 934-2600.

ing of the Walton County
Democratic Women's Club
Through explosive growth
and now economic stagna-
tion, the current system
of land use regulations in
Walton County has proven
problematic in many ways.
This presentation describes
the issues involved with .the
current system and how a
transect-based . code may.
represent the best direction
for ,Walton County's, land
use regulations.
The presentation was cre-
ated by a group of concerned
local citizens with expertise
in architecture, planning,
and the environment who
gathered to advise the Wal-
ton County Planning Com-
mission during the compre-
hensive plan amendment
process.
Mark Schnell is an urban
designer and planner based
in Seagrove Beach. His firm,
Schnell Urban Design LLC
(www.schnellurbandesign.
com), provides visioning, ur-
.ban design/planning, design
codes, and design review for
public and private sector
clients. Christi Commander
Ferry will serve as program
moderator.
The meeting will be held
at 2 p.m. at the Coastal Li-
brary. All are welcome.

We all know the ad-
age "Do what you love and
you'll never work a day in
your life," but what's miss-
ing from that statement is
to work with those you love
and you'll never work a day
in your life.
Fortunately, I am blessed
to have such an honor work-
ing at the DeFuniak Herald.
I knew. this immediately
upon.joining its staff a year
ago. Reflecting on the past
year, of a few things I am
certain.
This paper is more than
just the longest established
business in Walton County.
It is a family, and not sim-
ply a family with the goal of
putting out a weekly paper,
'but one that considers each
other friends rather than co-
workers and employees.
Such a familial atmo-

corn


sphere is thanks to our gen-
erous owner and publisher
Gary Woodham. A man of
few words (thus I won't em-
barrass him with verbosity),
Gary has made the paper
'feel like home to .all of us
who have the good fortune
to work here.
Not only does' Gary make
the Herald an inviting place
to work, so does our recep-
tionist, Candace, who greets
everyone with a smile and
the most sincere '"How are
you?"" Never have I felt
someone so genuinely cared
in asking this' simple ques-
tion.
Our editor, Ron Kelley,
.shares the same sincere
and inviting attitude. From
day one, he has encouraged
my writing, even offering
.me this column. He made
my first career dream come


true, and for that I am deep-
ly grateful.
My interoffice neighbors
and fellow reporters Jeff
Powell and Alicia Leon-
ard keep an open door and
ready ear. Beyond their pro-
fessional talents-Alicia's
investigative eye and Jeffs
knack for human interest
stories-these two can put a
smile on anyone's face.
Everyone else in the Her-
ald office-Bruce, Alisha,
Norma, Sandra, Pat, and
Ben- offer equally unique
talents, that even in a year I
have not had the pleasure of
fully knowing.
Each person is an inte-
gral part of the Herald fam-
ily. They are the reason this
paper grows stronger each
year...and they are the rea-
son for the adage "Home is
where the heart is."


Dear Auntie Em,
Just a note to tell you how
enjoyable your good com-
mon sense, kind, and caring
advice in your "Ask Auntie
Em" column is. A great read
- hope it continues for a long
time!
Sincerely,
M. Edwards
DeFuniak Springs
Dear M,
Thank you for such a nice
note. It always seems to
make a person's day when
you give them a little pat on
the back. Your note made
mine.
My advice to our kind
readers this week is sim-
ple. Find someone during
this week, and give them
a pat on the back for a job,
well done. Many people go
through every day without
hearing a kind word, about
their efforts. Although, we


do not do good deeds for
the thanks, sometime we
all need an extra push. The
little thing you do to thank
another may have a major
impact in that person's life.
It does not have to be
large, but be on the look out
for those who can use a posi-
tive word or a kind deed.
Let a person in front of you
at the grocery store. Thank
someone who holds a door
open for you. Seek and you
will find someone to thank
or help this week.
Keep .sending, those
thoughts, questions or prob-
lems into Auntie Em and I'll
keep doing my best to an-
swer them or at least point
you in a positive direction.
Until next week, good luck
and God bless.
Auntie Em

sponsors blood drive June 28


Paxton Baptist ,Qlhurch

Sunday June 28 .from 11
a.m. to.4 p.m.


Many of us remember
the statement in the word
of the Lord about Abraham.
The Bible reads that "He
looked for a city that hath
foundations, whosp builder
and maker is God" (He-
brews 11:10). This verse
gives many people different
views of this life. Consider
the following.
For many people,, life
looks like a treadmill. it re-
ally has no ultimate mean-
ing; just the same old grind
every day. There is no ex-
citement, only monotony.
People on treadmills listen
to something to entertain
them. It does not have to
mean anything, it only has
to help break the monoto-
ny.
Again, many people look
on life as a saga, an epic
story. It exalts human vir-
tues and glorifies the man,
woman, family, the race or'
nation. Those who look at
life as a saga are the com-
fortable, successful ones for
whom life is seen as good.
It must not be upset or tam-
pered with by others. Their
friends are the "best" peo-
ple, and they only belong
to the more "respectable"
organizations. They think
theirs is the "American way
of life" or whatever-form of
life they happen to enjoy.

Another view of life is the
pilgrimage way. A pilgrim
is one who has escaped the
treadmill and is looking
for a different meaning to
life. Abraham left Ur of

the Chaldees, making his
way to Palestine. He was
seeking .for that which was
from God. He looked for the'
Promised Land and for a
spiritual home, as well. He
was making a pilgrimage.
A pilgrimage is always a
spiritual adventure. Its re-
sult is to find God reaching.
down to us and ourselves
reaching up to him. When
we find him through the


of life.

Chasing Fleas

BY REV. DR. G. CHARLES SATTERWHITE, PASTOR


Neatly nestled between
David fleeing to Engedi
(wilderness of Judah on the
western shore of the Dead
Sea where palm groves
grow), in chapter 23, and
the death of Nabal (fool), a
foolish man who refused to
help David (chapter 25), is
an interesting story of how
wicked Saul was spared by
David. 1Sam. 24:10-14
As I was reading this
story, I was suddenly in-
spired by the little phrase
ISam. 24:14 "After whom is
the king of Israel come out?
After whom dost thou pur-
sue? After a dead dog, after
a flea." I consulted Dr. Bag-
well about some character-
istics of a flea, and I 'began
immediately drawing a par-
allel of fleas to humans.
The first point is their
purpose in life. The flea from
pupa, larvae, and adult are
born for one reason, to cause
ruin. David realized that
Saul was God's anointed,
but he was not acting like
God's anointed by pursuing
him.
He was not acting like
the Saul of earlier days
who was so humble that he
hid among the stuff. 1Sam.
10:22: "Therefore they in-
quired of the Lord further,
if the man should yet come
thither. And. the Lord an-
swered, Behold, he hath hid
himself among the stuff."
What is your purpose in
life?
You can have a new na-
ture in Christ Jesus 2Cor.
5:17 Therefore if any man be
in Christ, he is a new crea-
ture: old things are passed
away; behold, all things are
become new. John 10:9 I
am the door, 'by me, if any
man enter in, he shall be
saved, and shall go in and
out, and find pasture. John-
10:10 The thief cometh not,
but for to steal, and to kill,
and to destroy: I am come
that they might have life,
and that they might have,
it. re .,aunda4tly. John
10:11 I am the good shep-
herd: the good shepherd
giveth his life for the sheep.
The old nature that
needs Christ is bent toward
destruction, and evil. The
person cannot change from
unrighteous to righteous
through any effort of his or
her own Eph. 2:1-10..-
If you will notice in our
text, "after a dead dog, after
a flea" (1 Sam. 24:14). The
flea will even infest a dying
dog, and will feed on the dog
until death.
Another characteristic of
a flea is that fleas rely on
others to spread their pow-
er. Prov. 16:25 There is a
way that seemeth right unto
a man, but the end thereof
are the ways of death.
Like the deadly sin of gos-
sip, the sin of unrighteous
conspirators is equally as
deadly. It is bad enough
for a person to be lost, but

they are not content being
lost alone. An adult flea can
bring 400 more fleas into ex-
istence.
Is your purpose in life full
of ruin?
You may say I can change
anytime that I please, but
just as the flea cannot stop
being a flea, you cannot stop
sinning without Christ, and
His Holy Spirit dwelling in
you.
You may think that hell is
a joke and that this life is all
that that there is, but friend,
Jesus died upon a cross to
take care of the disease of
sin that is raging through
your life, Rom. 3:23 For all
have sinned, and come short
of the glory of God; Rom.
10:9-13
Your friends may laugh
you into hell, but they will
never laugh you out of hell.
You may have a companion,
a loved one, or a friend that
is a Christian, but you will
not get to heaven because
you attach yourself to their
goodness, but you must con-
fess your sin.
One thing that makes
hell so horrible is the power
of what might have been.'
You cannot change your na-
ture, but Christ can and will
if you will allow Him. If you
die without Jesus, this mes-
sage today will play over in
your mind like a broken re-
cord for eternity. You will try
* drowning it out, but there is
no rest in hell.
The flea carries disease.
Just as you have genetic
characteristics from your
two parents, there is a char-
acteristic that is known as
sin in each of us. You are
born into sin, and you have
to be born again to be rid of
the old nature of sin. The
habit of sin must be bro-
ken, and only the new na-
ture of Christ can effect this
change. Just as the flea is a
flea by nature - you and I
are sinners by nature.
The flea loves to stay in
shady areas, (they don't like
the sun); 'Ps. 143:3 For4he.
enemy hath persecuted my
soul; he hath smitten my
life down to the ground; he
hath made me to dwell in
darkness, as those that have
been long dead.
John 7:7 The world cannot
hate you; but me it hateth,
because I testify of it, that
the works thereof are evil.
1Sam. 2:9 He will keep the
feet of his saints, and the
'wicked shall be silent in
darkness; for by strength
shall no man prevail. 1John
1:6-7 If we say that we have
fellowship with him, and
walk in darkness, we lie,
and do not the truth: 1John
1:7 Buit if we walk in the
light, as he is in the light,
we have fellowship one with
another, and the blood of Je-
sus Christ his Son cleanseth
us from all sin.
Deut. 28:29 And thou
shalt, grope at noonday, as


Rev. Dr. G. Charles
Satterwhite, Pastor


the blind gropeth in dark-
ness, and thou shalt not
prosper in thy, ways: and
thou shalt be only oppressed
and spoiled evermore, and
no man shall save thee.
A flea is aggravating and
causes allergies.
I have been Christian long
enough to tell when some-
one is really a Christian or
not. A sinner is a very irrev-
erent, but a person who is
bent toward evil after hav-
ing an opportunity to accept
Christ is intolerable.
Saul had some good men fol-
lowing him, but they were
all bent toward doing evil
Rom. 6:16 Know ye not,
that to whom ye yield your-
selves servants to obey, his
servants ye are to whom ye
obey; whether of sin unto
death, or of obedience unto
righteousness?
Flea spray may destroy
the adults, but they do not
destroy the eggs..
You can come to the altar
and be rid of the guilt of sin,
but you cannot change the
'nature of sin through con-
fessing sin. Thoroughly be-
ing convinced of change is
merely the beginning. Being
moved emotionally is impor-
tant also, but it is only. the
next step. The prodigal son
made was still in the pen'
feeding the hogs until he
arose ,and went. The Lord
must break the stubborn
will of sin.
Likf Saul, we chase many
fleas in life. However, Jesus
gives life. Rom. 8:1 There is
therefore now no condem-
nation to them which are
in Chi-ist Jesus, who walk
not after the flesh, but after
the Spirit. Rom. 8:2 For the
law of the Spirit of life in
Christ.Jesus hath made me
free from the law of sin and
death. Rom. 8:3 For what the
law could not do, .in that it
was weak through the flesh,
God sending. his own Son in
the likeness of sinful flesh,.
and for sin, condemned sin
in the flesh: Rom. '8:4 That
the righteousness of the law
might be fulfilled in us, who
walk not after the flesh, but
after the Spirit.

,The nature of the flea is
stubborn.
The flea has to be con-
demned to death through
something stronger than his
ability to destroy. God's Son,
Christ came to give us new-
ness.

TDC dispenses



funds, repairs



.parking structure


By LEAH STRATMANN
With summer in full
swing, members of the
South Walton Tourist De-
velopment Council (TDC)
are cautiously optimistic
about bed tax revenue in the
next few months. Treasurer
Mary Brown reported April
taxes "better than I had
anticipated. We are down
about 10 percent, but yearly
we have an increase of about
3 percent overall. I think we
are hanging in there and do-
in' what we need to do," she
concluded.
Doing what needs to be
done includes big discount-'
ing for many of the area's
bed tax collectors who find
fewer people making lodng-
term vacationn reservations,
with room for last-minute
decisions on the part of va-
cationers.
Vickie Warner, a member
of the marketing committee
of the TDC, provided details
of groups who sought finan-
cial help in the promotion
of events in Walton County.
One of the criteria used in
determining whether or not
an event will be financially
helped is the viability of the
event to bring visitors into


the county. The marketing'
committee had set aside
$100,000 for this funding,
and in the end awarded
$88,000 to events as diverse
as the ACT Walton farmer's
market, a new group which
was awarded $1,000, to
literary readings and din-
ner discussions, which got
$2000. .
The annual Seaside.
Marathon and 5K Race was
awarded $10,000, up $2,000
from previous years. Fund-
ing was approved for both
Chautauqua groups in De-
Funiak Springs, as well as
the Back to Nature Pro-'
gram.
A new event, a song-
writer's festival, scheduled
for January 2010, asked for
$10,000, but was awarded
only $8,000. In making a mo-
tion to approve all the rec-
ommendations of the com-
mittee, board member Ken
Gifford moved to increase
the award to the $10,000
level requested. The motion
was passed by all, making
the total expenditure by the
committee $90,000. The un-
allocated funds remain as a
line item and available to
fund other requests.


Representatives from
Taylor Engineering, the de-
signers of the $4.6 million
dollar parking deck, which
opened in mid-May and was
damaged by an overweight
-truck two weeks later, re-
ported the repair has been
completed. The cost of the,
repair was about $5,000.
The engineers suggested
the TDC need to find a way
to keep vehicles weighing
more than 10,000 pounds
from entering into the park-
ing deck. The deck has been
designed to withstand hurri-
cane winds and signs clearly
state the weight limits for
the deck and indicate where
heavier vehicles . should
park, but there is no way to
enforce which vehicles enter
the structure.
The engineers pointed out
the structure was designed
for passenger vehicles and
suggested strongly that the
TDC install height restric-
tors on the two entrances,
as well as the exit - which
has been seen being used
as an entrance -- which'
would physically prevent.

Group to seek state scenic designation for Old 98


By DOTTY NIST
"We feel like Old High-
way 98 should have this
type of designation,". Tom
Machamer told county com-
missioners on June 9, speak-
ing of a state scenic roadway
designation.
Machamer represent-
ed a group of owners and
property owners on Old 98,


the southwestern Walton
County highway that was
the original Highway 9.8,
now mainly known as Sce-
nic Gulf Drive in Miramar
Beach. The group calls itself
"Old 98 Initiative."
Machamer spoke on the
history of this beachfront
road and its importance as
the first tourist beach des-


TOM MACHAMER addresses the Walton County Board
of County Commissioners on June 9.


tination between Pensacola
and Panama City, due. to
proactive Miramar Beach
area pioneers.
Sixty years ago, Macha-
mer explained, there was
not one beachside resort in
this region; now the area is
known all over the world for
its beachfront accommoda-
tions and its beauty.
Machamer called Old
98 "the grandfather of the
resort industry in Walton
County" and "a great natu-
ral resource." -
He spoke of Walton Coun-
ty's first beachfront resort,
Murmuring Surf, construct-'
ed in the late 1940s and
the 1950s by Jack Terry,
the contributions of Mira-


mar Beach pioneer Michael
Grimaldi and his family,
and then, the Nitsos family,
who built Frangista Beach
Resort, named after their
home village in Greece.
Machamer asked the
commissioners for their
"blessing," in the form of a
resolution of support, for
the initiative to garner a
designation for Old 98/Sce-
nic Gulf Drive in the Florida
Scenic Highways Program.
This is the designation re-.
cently' approved for CR-30A
and four north-south roads
connecting with that county
highway, after a lengthy ap-
plication procedure.
Such a designation is .a
draw for visitors and it also


increases the possibility of
state funding for improve-
ments to roadways that
achieve this recognition.
In addition to their sup-
port for the state scenic
designation, Machamer re-
qutested that county ordi-
nances be written "to pro-
tect the natural beauty of
the road," and "so that we
can get better control of the
properties...including the
look of the properties."
Walton County District
5 Commissioner Cecelia
Jones expressed apprecia-
tion to Machamer for serv-
ing as a spokesman for the
initiative. She noted that

and International Associa-
tion of Fire Chiefs (IAFC)
developed this annual pro-
gram to encourage all fire/
EMS departments to devote


this week to reviewing safe-
ty policies, evaluating the
progress of existing initia-
tives, and discussing health
and fitness. The SWFD will .,
make a concentrated effort
during this week to review
and evaluate safety mea-
sures and to provide focused
training relative, to .this
year's theme.
"The safety of our per-
sonnel is a full-time job and
priority for each one of us.
We can't be complacent and
expect someone else to take
responsibility, it must be a
personal commitment," said
Deputy Chief Sean Hughes.
The creation of a strong,
safety culture based around
the SWFD's core. values of
Leadership, Teamwork, In-
tegrity and Community Ser-
vice will position the SWFD,
to safely deliver its mission
of "Prompt, Competent,
Caring Response in Time of

Birmingham man dies.

in kayaking accident at

Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) investigators said
Lloyd Cecil ' Colgate ven-
tured out into the Gulf on
a borrowed kayak June 10
around 4 p.m. behind Em-
erald Surf* Condominiums.
Witnesses reported, 'that
Colgate fell off the kayak
and began struggling.
Bystanders- rushed to
help him, but he wag unre-
sponsive when pulled Trom

present performed CPR un-

nounced him dead.
He' and his wife report-

There have been 32 con-
firmed fatal boating ac-
cidents so far this year in
Florida. In 2008,, the-re
were 26 at this point. With
more than 1 million regis-
tered vessels in Florida and
countless'others brought to
the state by tourists, FWC
staff say the No. 1 thing
boaters should do to avoid
fatal boating mishaps is to,
wear a life jacket any time
their vessel is moving.

from entering the structure.
Executive director Sonny
Mares said they would look
into it and report at the next'
meeting.
Mares also commented on
the "Leave No Trace" cam-
paign of the TDC and about,
how the program is going to
progress. "In the first two
years of the program, en-
forcement has been prima--
ry. There has been a lot of
discussion about- switching
from 'enforcement to educa-
tion. This isan opportunity
for the TDC to interact one-
on-one with people on the.
beach through the use of
beach ambassadors explain-
ing the leave no trace pro-
gram as well as the warning
flag system," Mares said.
When items are not re-
moved from the beach, code
enforcement will be called
in. Unattended items will
first be tagged. If tagged
items are still there 24 hours
later, they will be removed.
Once an item is- abandoned,
it can be thrown away, but
now items will be held for
two days in case somebody
wants the item back. Mares
pointed out this program
will lave td be' approved by
the Board of County Com-
missioners (BCC) and the
TDC, is hoping to get it on
the June 30 agenda.
S"The word is out that
Leave No Trace. exists,"'
said 'county attorney Mike'
Burke.
"We feel weprobably have
several beach staff members
who can interact with the
public and explain to them
the necessity 'of removing
the items. These people will
be the eyes and ears of code
enforcement. I think if we
see that one' person can be
effective, we will consider a
second person," Mares said.
On other matters, Mares
said the TDC is looking
into taking some new pho-


tographs to use in the ad-
vertising campaigns and in-
stead of paying royalties on
photographs by others, will
instead hire a photographer
and own the images. Mares
said this would be cheaper
overall than continuing to
pay royalties.
One of the, reasons for
owning images is a plan by
the TDC to develop a fam-
ily of brochures about area
features. When completed,
there will be brochures on
area dining, golf, art, shop-
ping, and other interest-
specific brochures. Employ-
ees of the TDC will design
all the graphics and an on-
demand printer has been
found which will lower the
cost overall. Mares predicts
all the.brochures will be fin-
ished within the next two to
three months.
As a final piece of busi-
ness, Mary Brown comment-
ed CR-30A is beginning to
take on the appearance of
Front Beach Road in Pana-
ma City. "There are vendor
merchandise signs lining the
roads, as well as a number
of other kinds of signs. This
concerns me because one of
the qualities we market and
people comment about is the
beauty of the area. If people
see the roadway becoming
less attractive, they are less
concerned about what they
leave on' the beach. Code
enforcement is allowing the
erection of sandwich signs
because of the economy,"
she said.
Brown said she has called
code enforcement a number
of times to no avail. Attorney
Burke said he would contact
the department.
There being no further
items on the agenda the
meeting was adjourned.

There is a serious down-
side to having a service like
Dish Network in your home
- you watch a lot more tele-
vision. Yep, I bet I've had
my face glued toward the
tube more in the past three
weeks than I have in the last
six months. It's the newness
of a bunch of channels, of
course, and I hope it soon
wears off. I can almost hear
my-brain cells dying and if
I were much of a drinker,
there would be twice .as
many dying cells.
However, while I'm still
enamored of this new aspect
of my life, I've rediscovered
Anderson Cooper on CNN.
Sigh. What a .lot of nice, in-
telligent eye candy. I sus-
pect Anderson plays for the
other team, but the beauty
of a fantasy is he can be on
a trajectory to my front door
if I dream it. Sure, he might
show up at my door asking
for my opinion on how our
new president is doing to
round out his Florida sur-
vey.
I'd tell him I wish the
president would spend more
time conjuring on fixing the
things he promised he would
fix and less time seeking out
every television camera he
can find. I personally want
to see some radical changes
in how working Americans,
who cannot afford even
lousy health insurance, can


take care of themselves. If I
need hospitalization, it will
be the Florida taxpayers
picking up the tab. As some-
one who takes responsibility
for myself, I don't want to be
a burden to anyone.
Unlike many, I don't fault
the president for wanting to
do dinner and the theater
with his wife, but gee whiz,
once you are president, the
rules change. He is just go-
ing to have to adapt and he
should have thought the
whole dinner and theater'
in New York City thing
through a bit more. In ad-
dition to the cost of getting
the first couple to the venue,
they screwed up traffic in a
city that doesn't need any
help with traffic snarls, as
well as inconvenienced oth-
er diners and theatergoers.
I suspect it is not a mistake
he will make twice, which is
one of the reasons I think he
will ultimately make a very
good president. There is no
how-to-be-a-president hand-
book and the man is youth-
ful and in love with his wife,
so let's give it that one, pro-
vided he thinks before he
makes reservations in the
future. If he makes a habit
of this kind of thing, those
who voted for him will know
they have been bamboozled
once again.
Back on television, I think,
, you can safely say some ver-

Harborwalk Village honoring local heroes in weekly event


On Thursday, June 6,
HarborWalk Village was
proud to honor Hero Senior
Airman George Minkins III
from the Hurlburt Air Force
Base. HarborWalk Village
will be honoring local heroes
weekly and giving them a
key to the city of Destin.
The Red, White and Blue
Celebration at HarborWalk
Village located on the Des-
tin Harbor, is a weekly hon-
oring of a local hero at 7 p.m.
Each week the celebration
will highlight the efforts of
people who go above and
beyond to make their com-
munity better. They are the
nameless, faceless people


who represent the best in
all of us. Local entertain-
ment and a Word War II
replica flyover will begin at
7:20 p.m. A spectacular fire-
works display over the Des-
tin Harbor will commence at
8:30 p.m. Weekly fireworks
are sponsored by Buffalo
Rock Pepsi.
-Airman Minkins is a
contracting specialist for
the 1st Special Operations
Contracting Squadron at
Hurlburt Field. He has been
in the Air Force for a little
over two years and has hit
the ground running. He is
currently serving as the
Hurlburt Airman's Council


President which drives mo-
rale, promotes unity, and
encourages professional
development through team
building activities and ca-
reer advancement seminars.
He also volunteers for Air-
men against Drunk Driving
in his spare time and has
recruited more than 20 new
drivers for the program.
Minkins has helped raise
more than $14,000 for Mus-


cular Dystrophy research,
and has run two full mara-
thons to support this cause.
On Thursday, June 11,
HarborWalk Village hon-
ored Turf Care Superinte-
nant Doug Higgins from Re-
gatta Bay Golf and Country
Club. HarborWalk Village
is honoring local heroes and
giving them a key to the city
of Destin.
Higgins pulled a woman


from her car on the morn-
ing of Tuesday, March 31
after she drove into a small
pond on the Regatta Bay
Golf Course. When the car
stopped sinking, it was sub-
merged 95 percent, said
Bronson Coleman, a battal-
ion chief with Destin Fire
Department. Before rescue
workers arrived, Higgins,
a Regatta Bay superinten-
dent, pulled 59-year old Lin-


da B. Alek out of her car. "I
was on the 16th hole, and I
could hear tires squealing,"
said Higgins, who was mak-
ing his morning rounds in a
golf cart.
On Wednesday, April 8,
Higgins was presented Des-
tin Fire Control Chief Kevin
Sasser's first ever Chiefs
Lifesaving Award for his
"selflessness and bravery."

By LEAH STRATMANN
After several months of
contention, the two groups
representing slightly differ-
ent neighborhood plans for a
Blue Mountain Beach over-
all district finally settled
their differences. After four
meetings mediated by Gerry
Demers, director of the de-,
velopment services division
of the planning department,
the groups have agreed.
"I was asked to mediate
with the two groups and try
to come back with a plan to
please both groups," Dem-
ers said. "We met four times
and both groups were very
cooperative."
Among the concessions
made were special setback
distances for Gulf front ho-
meowners. The district will
also allow for some conces-
sions to be made in the event
storm events erode land par-
cels to the point where there
is no longer room to meet
the parking space require-
ment. Currently, if a' home
has four bedrooms, there
is supposed to be room for
three parking spaces. How-


ever, if a home is destroyed
due to a storm and needs to
be rebuilt, there may be less
space for parking.
Planner Mac Carpenter
said, "A lot of work has gone
into the two plans. We have
reviewed them for consis-
tency with the comprehen-
sive plan and the land de-'
velopment code. We would
like to recommend the plan-
ning commission listen to
the public comment and
then postpone until the July
meeting for final adoption.
It would allow advertising
for the combined ordinance,
and also allow for a clean
version of the .ordinance to
be posted on the Internet."
Citizen Susan Lucas said,
"We have been working on
the plan since 2005. We feel
we finally have a good solid
plan that everybody agrees
on and takes the interest of
everyone in the neighbor-
hood into consideration. We
would like to encourage the
commission to consider the
plan and move it forward,"
she said.
Rodney Dorand, one of


the mediators and part of
the beachfront contingent,
said he wanted the per-
centage of property owners
needed to change the plan
to be 66 percent, to protect
beachfront owners. The way
the ordinance is written now
calls for 66 percent of the re-
spondents, rather than 66
percent of the owners.
Anita Page said, "It would
be very difficult for a group
of neighbors to usurp the
neighborhood plan. The 66
percent of responders is just
a number that has to agree
to take it through the whole
process it has already gone
through."
There was also some con-
cern about the beach access-
es, which are maintained
by the South Walton Tour-
ist Development Council
(TDC). Commissioner Ran-
dy Gardner said, "The con-
cern is public versus neigh-
borhood beach access. The
TDC maintains the beach
accesses and should not
have to consult with anyone
to maintain the accesses."
Commissioner Tom Ter-


rell said, "We have had this
thing back and forth for quite
a while. This seems as close
as we are going to get. The
ordinance will protect the
TDC in maintaining a pub-
lic access and not infringe
on anyone's property rights.
I see it as a pretty complete
document as it stands."
A motion was made to ac-
cept the document with the
changes and moved along tof
the Board of County Com-
missioners.
The only other two items
considered on the agenda
were the acceptance of a
countywide height ordi-
nance, which calls for limits
on height to 50-feet for resi-
dences, 75-feet for commer-
cial, and 100-feet for indus-
trial areas. The ordinance
notes the exception in height
for Point Washington at 32-
feet and Grayton Beach of
40-feet.
The final item was the ac-
ceptance of the master plan
for the Boys & Girls Clubs.

Mattie Kelly Arts Center: Apalachicola


River: An American Treasure


The galleries at the Mattie
Kelly Arts Center at North-
west Florida State College
will present a new exhibit
June 21 to July 24 - Apala-
chicola River: An American.
Treasure. The exhibit is free
and open to the public.
Apalachicola River: An
American Treasure is the
culmination of the work.
done by five individuals who
tell the story of the "big riv-
er." It shares the history of
the people who make their
living from the river and
deals with the politics and
water wars between Ala-
bama, Florida, and Georgia.
Through their photographs
and film, the artists are able'
to capture the unmarked
beauty of the Apalachicola
River that is not often seen
by the public. They high-
light places such as the Riv-
er Styx, Kennedy Creek and
Tupelo Creek.
World-renowned' photog-
raphers Clyde Butcher and
Richard Bickel depict the
land and people that make
up the Apalachicola River.
Butcher has captured na-
ture's seductive beauty with
his stunning black and white
landscape photographs for
over 35 years. For the past
two decades Butcher has
photographed the Florida
landscape, producing exqui-
site images of the diverse
coastline and waterways,
prompting many to refer to
him as "the Aosel Adams
of the South." In this ex-
hibit, Butcher explores the
sprawling landscape and
takes viewers on a journey
where they have not been
before.
Richard Bickel is a photo-
journalist who has worked
on assignments in over 70
countries for publications
such as The New York Times
Magazine and National Geo-
graphic. Bickel's portraits
reveal the spirit and vital-
ity of the people whose lives
are directly impacted by the
Apalachicola River. His im-
ages include fishermen and
their families who depend
upon the river for their sur-
vival.
With the contributions
made by filmmaker Elam


* Stotzfus, noted screenwriter
Jane Atkins and composer
Sammy Tedder, the accom-
panying film shows the im-
portance of the Apalachicola
and the message of conser-
vation. This exhibition has
received many accolades


and been' screened at"a va-
riety of film festivals that
include the Houston Inter-.
national Film Festival and
the Napa - Sonoma Wine
Country Film Festival.
Gallery hours for the ex-
hibit are Monday to Thurs-


day, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Sun-
days from 1 - 4 p.m., and 90
minutes prior to most. per-
formances in the main stage
theater of the Mattie Kelly
Arts Center. For informa-
tion, contact the gallery of-
fice at (850) 729-6044.

lake's outfall recently.
At a public workshop last
week, Billy McKee, an en-
vironmental planner with
public works, explained the
chronology of what has oc-
curred recently on Oyster
Lake. After heavy rains
threatened electrical and
septic systems to homes
along Oyster Lake, an emer-
gency permit was granted
on April 2, 2009 to open the
outfall.
"When public works
staff evaluated the options,
it seemed clear using the
property of Lisa Boushy was
the only option available to
open the lake. Ms. Boushy
granted permission to use
her property for an emer-
gency opening along her
eastern property line, but
only if the county agreed to
restore her property to its
previous state," McKee said.
The county contacted the
Florida Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection (DEP)
to begin the emergency pro-
cess,. County survey crews
mobilized to mark property
lines and equipment was
brought onto the site. The,
permit from the DEP has
not yet been approved' and
to date, no dirt has been
placed.
Dick Francher, of the
Pensacola office of DEP, said
his office is only waiting for
proof of publication of the
notice of application, then
the permit will be granted
and the Boushy property re-
stored.
The problems with Oys-
ter Lake are long-standing
and over the years there


has been much tampering
with the outfall, some by
the county and some by oth-
ers without permission or
permits.
After Hurricane Opal in
1995, Bill Hemby sued Wal-
ton County,, claiming the
county dug a new trench,
which caused the lake's
drainage to go through the
middle of the four Hemby-
owned lots west of the out-
fall. The drainage then pre-
vented the Hembys from
building a beach house for
which they already had a
permit.
The original lawsuit was
won by Walton County, ac-
cording to county attorney
Mike Burke. The Hembys
then appealed the ruling
to the First District Court,
which -reviewed the order
and overturned it by a vote
of three to two, claiming the
county took the property by
virtue of eminent domain
and the Hembys were en-
titled to compensation.
Walton County and Burke
contend the First District
judgment is an egregious er-
ror and asked for a review
by all the judges in the First
District, which was subse-
quiiently denied. The matter
has since been sent .to the
Florida Supreme Court to
review the reversal decision
by the First District Court.
Since the beginning of all,
the regal wrangling, both of
the .Hembys have died and
Hemby's daughter and son-
in-law, Gary Drake, are now
pursuing the lawsuit.
In the meantime, attor-
ney Stan Chapman, who


represents Hemby/Drake,
made a compromise offer to
the county. The Drakes are
willing to give the county a
permanent easement along
the west side of the property
to the Coastal Construction
Line (CCL) and from that
point forward the outlet
could meander naturally.
The Drakes want the coun-
ty to declare that the cur-
rent outfall is not a natural
outlet, which would grant
the way for them to build a
house. They also seek dam-
ages in the way of legal
fees.
According to attorney
Greg Stewart, who outlined
the offer, "It is a worst-case
scenario for the county. Al-
though it would allow for an
outlet, it is not the best out-
let," he said.
Drake read a statement
saying the outfall is not in
its natural place and hasn't
been since the construc-
tion of CR-30A in 1959.
Drake claims the outfall
was at least 300 feet west
of its current location prior
to the construction of the
road. Further, he'said, "The
Hembys have never sought
to block the outfall, and the
Court's ruling in the Hem-
bys' favor did not authorize
anyone to block the outfall.
That has never been an is-
'sue in the case, although
that has been reported as
being an issue. The continu-

ous below-ground sandbags
that have been called a
bermm' was constructed by
the Hembys in accordance
with a court order that ex-
pressly recognized the Hem-
bys' right to seek to provide
additional protection for
their property, and was sub-
sequently ditched through
by the County, without per-
mission, in 2005. The Court
order I am referring to is
public record, easily con-
firmed, and my wife and I
take exception to the con-
tinuing barrage of untruth-
ful statements that falsely
accuse my wife's deceased
parents of illegally blocking
this outfall with a berm.
"The appeals court ruling
in our family's favor only
recognized that the Coun-
ty had redirected the flow
across our property where it
did not flow before and found
that the County was using
our property as a drainage
easement after emergency
flood relief conditions had
passed. Under these cir-
cumstances, the Florida and
U.S. Constitutions require
that the County pay the pri-
vate property owner what
a jury says is full and fair'
compensation for that pub-
lic use of private property,"
Drake said.
Oyster Lake resident
Jacquee Markel said, "This
is just such an emotional is-
sue. We are talking about
Oyster Lake here, but we
are also talking about sav-
ing the coastal dune lakes.
It makes my heart sink to
think about the possibility


of compromising our lakes.
I appreciate you allowing
us to come and speak to you
about this. Whatever hap-
pens on the south side of
30A, affects those of us on
the north side of 30A. We
want the bridge and drive-
way replaced. The residents
have been the most patient
people in Walton County.
When I built my house in
1991, there was talk about
replacing the culvert. Jt
is now 2009. I don't think
you could ask a single resi-
dent who would want sand
brought into the sweep area
of an outfall," she stated.
"Oyster Lake opened nat-
urally over the weekend and
it is exciting when we see
that," Markel said. "Your
agreement with Ms. Boushy
is a nightmare for us. I still
don't have a clear answer to
why Walton County cannot
enforce permits issued in our
county. The perfect example
is the Boushys now have a
permit they don't want hon-
ored because the DEP has
not enforced the removal of
the Drake armoring.
"I know you made this ar-
rangement with Ms. Boushy,
but it does not seem like a
good idea. I know why you
did it and I know your job
is hard, but to bring sand
in now that the lake is fi-
nally working...I look at the
drawings of where you plan
to bring in the sand and it,
looks like you will close' off
the outfall again, which
brings' us back to zero," she
concluded.

MOVIE REVIEW


"The Taking of Pelham 123" a

slick remake of '70s classic


By BRUCE COLLIER`'

Denzel Washington's,
name over the title can get
me into pretty much any
movie, even a rem.fk6iof a,
film that was. good enough
not to need' remaking. A
film like, say, "The Tak-
ing of Pelham 123." Tony
Scott directs Washington,
a beefy, tattooed John Tra-
volta, John Turturro, James
Gandolfini and much of New
York's Metropolitan Tran-
sit Authority (MTA) in the
summer's latest action flick.
In. case you are not familiar
with Joseph Sargent's origi-
nal. 1974 film, or haven't
seen a trailer, here's the
premise. A group of well-
armed criminals hijack and
disconnect a single train car
from the MTA's Pelham Bay
subway line ("123" refers to
the train's departure time'
- 1:23 p.m. - from Pelham
Bay station in the Bronx).
They hold the passengers in-
side for $10 million ransom,
deliverable in one hour. For
every minute the money is
late, they promise, a hos-
tage will be murdered.
Travolta plays Ryder,
the head bad guy. Wash-
ington plays Walter Garber,
the MTA dispatcher who is
Ryder's first contact 'once
the hijack has been effected.
A police hostage negotiator
named Camonetti (Turtur-
ro) is brought in, but Ryder
insists on dealing with Gar-
ber. Their contact is 90-per-
cent conversational, as they.
spar and negotiate over a
microphone communication
system. Meantime, one of
the hostages has been se-
cretly communicating via
laptop with his girlfriend,
who puts the entire drama
over the Internet. Yeah, the
'74 film didn't have any -of
that.
Also, New York 2009
looks a lot sprucer than the
Big Apple did in the dreary
'70s. Part of the appeal of
the original film was its
washed-out atmosphere and
the' rattletrap condition of
the MTA, with its creaking
cars, graffiti scrawled every-
where, and everything bust-
ed that could be busted. By
contrast, this is post-9/11,
post-Giuliani, slick and ef-
ficient New York, with lots
of energetic cops, clean cars,


digital MTA tracking sys-
tems, and everybody - that's
everybody - wired up to the
outside world. The pace is
much faster, to ratchet up
the tension.
How much actual ten-
sion is there? About half
the heist films made in the
anti-establishment '70s had
the bad guys getting away
with it.. Nowadays, things
are different. You gotta
face the music, maybe not
the law's misic, but some-
body's music. Especially if
you take life. Ryder and his
guys take life, suddenly and
brutally. There's practically.
no humor in "Taking of Pel-
ham 123," though Washing-
ton, Travolta and Turturro
can all be very funny guys.
Much of what there is comes
from Gandolfini as a lame-
duck mayor, dealing with
a. tabloid marital scandal
and counting the hours un-
til he leaves office. Urged
by a deputy to make a press
statement for a "leadership"
moment, the mayor sneers,
"I left my Rudy Giuliani suit
at home." The end seems
pretty much foreordained,
so the entertainment comes
from watching how high-
tech a spin they put on the
proceedings.
Ryder and his ,posse,
despite the thoroughness
of the plan (one of them is
a former MTA employee,
trained in the workings ' of
the subway routes), run up
'against a combination of su-
perior surveillance systems
and Garber's coolheaded-
ness. "Keep him talking,"
Camonetti advises Garber.
"Don't enter his reality."
Garber gains Ryder's con-
fidence, and the troubled
villain is soon leaking bits
and pieces of personal infor-
mation that reveal his true
identity and intentions. A
loose cannon to start with,,
Ryder gets looser and looser
as the deadline approaches.
He has a murderous tem-
per, and a mysterious but
abiding grudge against New
York. Will it prove to be his
undoing?
Gotta buy a token - I
mean, a Metrocard. The
MTA got rid of subway to-
kens in 2003. And don't let
it scare you away from New
York - like Sinatra said, it's
still a wonderful town.


THIS HISTORIC CHAPEL, two blocks north of Old lighwcy 98, served as a place of worship for the Nitsos family. The
family constructed the Frangista Beach resort, naming it after their hometown in Greece.


MURMURING SURF, Old Highway 98's pioneer resort, got a modest start in 1949, with new property owner Jack Terry
from Memphis constructing the first cottage with his own hands on 150 feet of Gulf front. One cottage a year was built
through. 1952, and additional buildings were added later. Murmuring Surf's sign and some of its structures remain, but
the resort is no longer in operation.


OLD 98


the group has held several
meetings, with approxi-
mately 30 people attending
one of the gatherings.
Following up on Macha-
mer's requests on behalf of
the groups, Jones made sev-

eral motions. The first was
to develop Scenic Gulf Drive
policies and a plan to be con-
sidered for inclusion in the
Walton County Land De-
velopment Code (LDC). The
second was to consider an


amendment to the LDC to
designate Scenic Gulf Drive
as a Walton County scenic
corridor. The third was to
approve the resolution sup-
porting Scenic Gulf Drive's
application for state scenic


highway status.
Those three motions were
approved by unanimous
vote.

missioners chairman Sara
Comander commented
the county has asked the
DEP to enforce ordinances
against armoring at Oyster
Lake, but "the lawsuit is a
huge impediment to enforce-
ment," she said.
Burke said, "The offer
to settle is just something
we have to let people know
about. This impediment
is why we are going to the
Supreme Court. We have to
eat the apple a little bite at
a time," he said.
County administrator
Ronnie Bell said the water
management district and
the Army Corps of Engineers
all want to see the project on
Oyster Lake completed, but
the lawsuit has delayed ev-
erything and tied the hands
of the county.
Anita Page, executive di-
.rector of the South Walton
Community Council (SWCC)
asked, "If we prevail in the
lawsuit, what problems will
be solved?"
Burke answered saying,
"The county will be allowed
to put in the culvert, build.
a bridge and remove the ar-
moring."
Immediately after the
conclusion of the workshop,
county attorneys met in ex-
ecutive session to discuss
the offer by the Drake fam-
ily. At press time, no infor-
mation had been released
about the recommendation
of the attorneys to the coun-
ty regarding the offer.

If you have been
watching the boob tube
over the past few
months, you might
have noticed that
there is a fight going
on between the liberal,
and conservative
media. At what point
should the government
say enough is enough,
or should they even get
involved?
....-....-.............-------- ---------
It seems that no matter
what station you watch,
whatever paper you get
your news from, or what
radio show you tune into
for the latest gossip, it is a
constant bombardment
from both the conservative
and liberal side, of the
media. Be it. about the
president, about former
President Bush, Hillary
Clinton, or Sarah Palin, the
airwaves and print media
just don't know when to "let
a dead horse lie."
Since the campaign wars
for the president's job
began to get heated in
January of 2008, the media
has had a field day with
jokes, puns, slaps and jeers
at the candidates and their
families, friends and
political - parties. There's
been a constant "dumping"
of jabs to the far right side,
and a constant criticism
about those on the left side.
SOne example of the
never-ending joke target,
Sarah Palin, former v.p.
nominee, was getting
ragged on the David
Letterman . show.
Letterman referred to her
minor daughter getting
"knocked-up" by a Yankees
baseball player in the
seventh-inning stretch, and
Palin herself, looking like
a Z'slutty. flight attendant."
The. joke got many laughs
from his studio audience,
but got the nation -heated
and ultimately fired back
at the late night comedian.
More than a million e-
mails, calls, letters and text
streamed in overnight to
CBS, who did not make a
formal apology for
Letterman's remarks about
Palin's daughter. Oddly
enough, Letterman made a
half-hearted apology to his
audience, without saying
"I'm sorry" to Palin and her
daughter directly.
Letterman's ratings
have been falling steadily


PAGE 5-C.


to his, late night
competition, and he is not
the only talk show host
that has been given the
raised eyebrow from the
studios when it comes to
their one-sided views.
The long-time
advertisers of these shows
. have also begun pulling out
from the advertising line-
ups and have cut millions
in advertising revenue, to
an already floundering
media source, the late
night talk shows.
It does not matter if you
watch Hannity and
the O'Reilly Factor on the
FOX News Channel, or AC
360. and Lou Dobbs on
CNN, it. has become a
struggle between these two
studios, for audiences.
From who can get the first
interview with a fallen
beauty queen, to having a
reporter actually walk
behind the. president and
sprinkle rose petals, these
news stations have
exploded in ratings, with
the FOX News Channel
ranking in the top three
spots with talk shows, over
CNN in the latest Nielson
rating.
But have you heard the
latest that is happening
and what is not being done
about it, except for
fingerpointing? .
Woman, especially those
in the media spotlight, are
always a target for the
media, from them gaining
weight and having an idea
for a better America, to'
whom they' are sleeping
with or why they voted the
way they did on an issue.
As mentioned earlier,
Clinton, Palin, Pelosi,
Obama, all have had their
time in the media spotlight,
and all have had to face the
music when the six o'clock
news hit the air.
But now they say that
the media needs to be
controlled by the
government toput a stop to
all the "bad talk" that is
going on in American news
reporting, be it against
woman, terrorist groups,
even other religions. Many.


e l. L C't


say the government should
control the media just like
they are trying to do with
the auto makers, the
banks, healthcare and
other businesses that were
once owned by a free-
enterprise nation.
I know you probably
think that with all the new
"czars" that Obama has
appointed, we should be
grateful that we are
returning to the tyrannical
rule of Mother Russia.
They were appointed to
report back to the
president to let him know
how he is spending our tax
dollars.
Despite massive public'
outrage .on this decision
and the way that banks,
hospitals, factories, auto
makers and even .the
media is snapping back,
there are still those out
there who want a bigger
government and less
freedom of speech, be it
from a liberal or a
conservative perspective.
In the latest media and
Internet blasts, there is a
group of 200,000 or more
that want their time in
front of Congress to outlaw
Christmas specials on
television, Christmas
carols being sung in
schools, and even
Christian programming
snatched from the
airwaves. They want
nothing of Christ, God or
Christianity to be heard or
seen in any form of the *
media.
Fortu-nately, millions of
those who are Christians
and many who say they do
not even have a church or
attend a church, or
blogging, e-mailing, faxing,
calling, and plans for a
massive protest are in the
works, opposing those who
want to take God out of
mainstream America. Once
again, is 'that not a
violation of constitutional
rights that were given in
the United States
Constitution?
I was impressed a few
days ago as I was passing
through Freeport and read


a bumper sticker that
simply said, "there. are
2,000 laws that protect,
defend and enforce 10
commandments." It is
amazing how true that
statement on the back of
that little Toyota pick-up
truck really was for all of
us who have faith and
abide by the laws of this
land.
Do you think
government should have a
bigger role in the media?
Do you think that both the
liberal and conservative,
Christian and non-
Christian, or male or
female media-makers, will
get a fair and balanced
chance to be heard?
With .very disturbing
and unsettling times in our-
nation, and with the way
that government seems to
be wanting to crack down
and do away with freedom
of speech, religion and
convert, to socialism and
bigger government, is it
time that we as American
citizens get more involved
with what is trying to be
taken away? Isn't it time
that We as tax paying
American citizens, have
the right to watch, listen,
or read whatever we feel
like without -the chance of
police and soldiers
breaking down our door
and hauling us off to jail?
It has - been a
favorite saying of mine for
many years and it' seems
more apparent today. The
saying is, "when you keep
the artists from painting,
the world goes gray; when
you keep the singer from
singing, the world- goes
mute; but when you hold
down the hands that want
to take action and create,
then you only enlarge the
heart that makes you fear
that creation the most."

I don't think that we
really have to worry about
North Korea bombing us,
or Iran not being our
friend, it is apparent that
Americans have become
enraged over what is
happening and the loudest
voices, are not those in.
Washington, but those who
put those elected officials
there in the first place.
Watch out D.C., those with
a voice are getting louder,
and both sides of the
political fence need to heed
the warnings of those they
represent!

Florida 32399-3000.

Because the administrative hearing pro-
cess is designed to redetermine final
agency action on the application, the filing
of a petition for an administrative hearing
may result in a modification of the permit
and lease, or even a denial of the applica-
tion. Accordingly, the applicant is advised
not to commence construction or other
activities under this permit/lease until the
deadlines below for filing a petition for an
administrative hearing, or request for an
extension of time have expired.

Under rule 62-110.106(4) of the Florida
Administrative Code, a person whose
substantial interests are affected by the
Department's action may also request an
extension of time to file a petition for an
administrative hearing. The Department
may, for good cause shown, grant the re-
quest for an extension of time. Requests
for extension of time must be filed with the
Office of General Counsel of the Depart-
ment at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard,
Mail Station 35,' Tallahassee, Florida
32399-3000, before the applicable dead-
line. A timely request for extension of time
shall toll the running time period for filing a
petition until the request is acted upon. If
a request is filed late, the Department may
still grant it upon a motion by the request-
ing party showing that the failure to file a
-,request for an extension of time before
: the deadline was the result of excusable
neglect.

In the event that a timely and sufficient pe-
tition for an administrative hearing is filed,
other persons whose substantial interests
will be affected by the outcome of the ad-
ministrative process have the right to peti-
tion to intervene in the proceeding. Inter-
vention will be only at the discretion of the
presiding officer upon the filing of a motion
in compliance with Rule 28-106.205 of the
Florida Administrative Code.

Green had some ideas
about why the treat is so
great. "We, believe cupcakes
are the perfect combina-
tion of portion and portabil-
ity in an individual dessert.
Our philosophy is centered
around baking wonderful
cupcakes every day. We
want people to say it is the
best cupcake they have ever
tasted and a few folks have
actually said it, to my de-
light!"
All of the cup cakes are
baked on-site and differ-
ent age groups have differ-
ent favorites, according to
Green. Kids lean toward the
traditional, "old-fashioned
vanilla bean cupcake with
pink frosting. The cake is
almost like pound cake and
the pink frosting makes eat-
ing it more fun." The adult
palate is more adventurous,
she said. "The hands-down
favorite for adults has been
the salted-caramel cup-
cakes. It's caramel cake with
a rich vanilla buttercream
sprinkled with sea salt and
topped with a. wedge of cara-
mel candy. People liked it
so much that I'm adding it
to the menu every Friday
through the end of sum-
mer."
The standard offer-
ing every week includes,
"Chocolate Dream," "Va-
nilla Bean" and "Key Lime
Twist." Green supplements
by adding her own tempting
concoctions in every week.
Some recipes have roots.
"MVcCurley's great-grand-
mother operated the Dairy
Dream Restaurant in Flo-


rala, AL., and the recipe for
red-velvet cupcakes comes
from her recipe box." And
Green's inspirations for the
key lime cake flavors were
"inspired by memories of the
endless quest for the perfect
key lime pie with her grand-
parents in south Florida.".
Green and McCurley are
utilizing the newest means
of marking to get out the
word on. their cupcakes.
Queen Bee twitters and has
its own Facebook following,
"our Facebook fan page con-
tinues to grow by about 20
fans per week," she said.
Their location is perfect
and Green said the cup


cakes have found a niche.
"The community has been
so welcoming and hospita-
ble to us. Seaside is a great
location for a cupcake bak-
ery because we complement
all the other food offerings
available and our customers
can walk up in their swim-
suits for a sweet treat," and
doing business in "Seaside,
in your ,flip-flops" is rather
sweet in: itself.

cakes on Facebook, call (404)
