Freeport City


Council talks


development


orders


By BEN GRAFTON
As the first matter
of business at the Free-
port Council meeting
of Aug. 14, City Plan-
ner Latilda H e n -
ninger brought to the
Council a development
application submitted
by Southern Wines and
Spirits for a distribu-
tion center to be located
at the south west corner
of Bulldog Road. The
center will consist of an
office and a warehouse.
The zoning designation
is 1-2. All requirements
have been met and the
Planning Board recom-.
mended approval. No-
land Baker, represent-
ing Southern Wine and
Spirits told the Council
that, with approval,
construction equipment
would start moving to
the site on Aug. 15. The
Council approved the
application.
Henninger then in-
troduced an applica-
tion submitted by C.W.
Roberts for a borrow
pit to be located on a
155 acre site about 3.4
miles north of the junc-
tion of SR-20 and-U.S.
331 By-pass. The zon-
ing category is 1-2. The
project consists of-a bor-
row pit, an office and a
scale building. Except
for one permit, which is
expected to be delivered
at any time, all require-
ments have been met
and the Planning Board
recommended approval.
The final development
order will be issued as
soon as the outstand-
ing permit is received.
The pre-development
conference is scheduled
for Aug. 15. The Plan-
ning Board is still re-
viewing language about
different types of land-
fills and will review this
subject with engineers
at the September meet-
ing. Language in the
enabling ordinance en-
sures that no landfill or
salvage yard will exist
on this site. A note stat-
ing these limitations
will be added to the de-
velopment order. The
Council approved the
application subject to
receipt of the outstand-
ing permit.
City Attorney Clay-
ton Adkinson told the
Council that the inter-
local agreement con-


cerning oversight of fire
department operations
the between the sher-
iffs office and the city"
has been reviewed. A
couple of changes have
been made and the
agreement sent back to
the sheriffs office. The
agreement spells out
the duties of the sher-
iffs personnel at the fire
department. The agree-
ment can be terminated
with 30 days notice. The
Council approved.
Adkinson reminded
the Council that the fi-
nal budget hearing at 7
p.m. on Sept. 25 needs
to be set. The Council
approved the date and
time.
The fire department
reported that in the
three-week July period
supervised by the sher-
iffs personnel, the de-
partment ran 59 calls of
which 35 were medical,
5 were vehicle crashes,
one structure fire, three
car fires, three brush
fires and a number of
service type calls. Dur-
ing this period firefight-
ers amassed 100 hours
of traini'figl'--- -
Engineer Charlie Cot-
ton' reported that ball
field project is ready to
be put out for bids this
week. Details of the bids
will be presented at the
next Council meeting.
The Council approved
asking for bids.
Engineer Cliff Knau-
er advised the Council
that the water and sew-
er models, together, will
cost about $46,000. One
of the things that needs
to be determined is
what pressure the sys-
tem is pushing against
at the lift stations. The
model will collect sys-
tem information all the
way to the plant. This
information could be
used to make the sys-
tem more efficient.
Mayor Mickey Marse
told the Council that one
of the things requested
of the engineers is to
look into ,is the Miley
Creek area. He report-
ed that when the pump
on CR-3280 is running,
the Miley Creek area
will not push into it. No
corrective action needs
to be taken right now,
but everybody needs to

class draws crowd


By ALICIA LEONARD
A large meeting room
at the Walton County
Sheriffs Office (WCSO)
was packed to almost
standing-room-only last
Thursday with social
workers, local residents,
parents and community
workers to get informa-

and methamphetamine;
production in Walton
County.
The two classes of
drugs, synthetic, includ-
ing what some refer to
as bath salts and syn-
thetic cannabis as well
as methamphetamine
(meth) have been in the
forefront of nationwide
news, with users dying
or injuring others while
under the influence of
the drugs. Although


there have been no re-

Walton residents brainstorm about the


future at county visioning meeting in DFS


By REID TUCKER
Making use of Wal-
ton County's natural
resources to build the
local economy and pro-
vide a greater quality of
life were the main take-
aways from Commis-
sioner Sara Comander's
final county visioning
meeting of 2012.
Comander, with the
County Commission's
blessing, came up with
the idea two years ago
to gather public input in
a series of countywide
brain-storming meet-


ings to get a sense of
residents' ideas for the
county's future in terms
of services, industry, in-
frastructure and other
areas. The wealth of
feedback she received
in 2010 made schedul-
ing another series of
visioning meetings in
2012 a safe bet for par-
ticipation from Walton
County residents, Co-
mander said. However,
the three meetings,
which took place in
Freeport, Santa Rosa
Beach and DeFuniak


Springs between Aug. 9
and Aug. 16, had a big-
ger-picture purpose this
time around.
"The whole point of
these meetings was to
get all parties involved,"
Comander said. "I want-
ed to get people from the
south end and the north
end together to discuss
their ideas like before,
but this time I want to
take things a step fur-
ther."
That further step
was to collate the main
points and recurrent


themes from all pre-
vious meetings into a
something resembling
a "wish-list" to take be-
fore the County Com-
mission with the aim
of producing a strategic
vision for the county as
a whole. Like the 2010
meetings, the main sug-
gestions from residents
fell into three general
categories: preserving
the county's natural
resources such as the
beaches in the south
and the farmland in the
north, with these being


leveraged toward eco-
nomic development and
enhancing the quality
of life in all areas in be-
tween. While the broad
strokes of the ideas
from two years ago re-
mained more or less the
same compared to those
gathered by this year's
meetings, the DeFuniak
Springs meeting on
Aug. 16 produced some
specific suggestions not
heard before, Comander
said.

Freeport budgeting efforts continue


By BEN GRAFTON
The Freeport Budget
Workshop of Aug. 13
began with a comment
by City Clerk Robin
Haynes that the North
Bay Water System bud-
get is ready to go, .keep-
ing in mind that fund-
ing for some projects
will have to come from
reserves.
Councilman Earl King
observed that since
correction of the water
system altitude -valve
problem will benefit the
whole system it is ap-
propriate to fund this
work from reserves
Haynes also reported
that the North Bay sales


C.W. Roberts Con-
tracting, Inc. is sched-
uled to begin resurfac-
ing 16 miles of U.S.
90 in Walton County
the week of Monday,
Aug. 20. Work will
begin at the Okaloosa
County line continuing
to Country Club Drive
in DeFuniak Springs.
Construction will con-
sist of milling and re-
surfacing the existing
roadway with new turn
lane construction at the
State Road (S.R.) 285


estimates are close to
the actual numbers.
King noted that wa-
ter system outside ser-
vices estimates may
be a little short. Other
than that, he believes
the two (Freeport and
North Bay) water sys-
tem budgets are, "...
good to go."
A discussion fol-
lowed about construc-
tion of a small building,
the plans for which are
about done. King indi-
cated that the job was
set for completion in
fiscal year 2011-12 and
that if the plans could
be sent out for bids,
the work could still be

tersections. New guard-
rail, minor drainage
improvements and a
new signal will be in-
stalled at the intersec-
tion of U.S. 90 and U.S.
331 north. S.R. 285 will
also be resurfaced from
south of 1-10 to U.S. 90.
Motorists can expect
minor traffic delays and
lane restrictions during
construction.

Haynes advised the
Council that project
costs are coming in
higher than the esti-
mates. This should be
considered when decid-
ing what to do about
the proposal for the wa-
ter system model. The
water system estimate
should be available on
Aug. 14. King indicated
that the model may be
something that cannot
be done at this time.
Haynes reported on
other proposed 2012-13
budget projects. A quote
of $92,000 has been re-

torists are advised to

there are three differ-

According to Haynes,
General Fund adminis-
tration costs should be
pretty close to current
expense levels; Plan-
ning and Zoning has
been increased because
of recent development


activity and there will
be some election ex-
penses in the coming
year.
As in the budget
workshop of Aug. 6, a
discussion developed
about staffing options
for the fire department.
Estimates of the cost
impacts for adding full
time firefighters to the
department as a means
of reducing overtime
costs were presented. In
the end, a decision was
reached to employ sev-
en full-time firefighters
and to evaluate .the ben-
efits of this move.


In addition fire de-
partment projects will
receive additional at-
tention Of these, the
top priority will be the
project upgrade the fire

tem. Additional esti-
mates for the cost of this
project will be obtained
to confirm the accuracy
of the one $10,000 fig-
ure obtained to date.

PERSONAL COMMENTS


Editorial Comment


We few,



we voting few


By BRUCE COLLIER

I felt like making some really disparaging re-
marks about the poor turnout for the Aug. 14 pri-
mary, until I read Dotty Nist's article on the recent
Walton Republican Women Federated luncheon,
an article running in this week's newspaper. Wal-
ton County Supervisor of Elections Bobby Beasley
told attendees that the county voter turnout this
time was 26 percent. That's a 9-percent improve-
ment over the May 8 referendum turnout, but still
disappointing. However, there's cause to rejoice.
Beasley added that we exceeded the state average,
which is 20.3 percent. So, we're lazy and apathet-
ic, but we're not that lazy and apathetic.
Beasley also expressed anticipation that the No-
vember General Election (or, "Armageddon on the
Potomac," as the Democratic and Republican par-
ties would have us believe), will be a bigger draw.
Apparently some 74 percent of Walton County's
registered voters braved shot and shell to cast
their votes in 2008's historic contest. Beasley, in
a burst of optimism and idealism, said that an 80-
percent turnout would not surprise him this fall.
From his mouth to God's ears, as they say.
Naturally, the attraction then will be the presi-
dential race, but there are a few county races yet
to be settled in November. Those remaining candi-
dates may get a chance to see what Walton County
really thinks of them. It might do them a lot of
good, to know what 80 percent (I will trust you,
Bobby) of the county's responsible citizens think
about how they have been doing (Mike Adkinson,
Carlene Anderson, for example) or how they might
do (Bill Chapman, Rosemary Ragle).
Speaking of what people think, the fact that the
County Commission just voted to install a security
system in the south Walton annex (like the one
here in DeFuniak Springs), in response to Sheriff
Adkinson's concerns over safety, is a sign of how-
skewed people's attitudes have become. Apparent-
ly voting is too much of a burden, but disrupting
public meetings or carrying loaded weapons into
them is not. I like live theatre as muchas anybody,
but that's too live for my taste.
We have articles this week on two other meet-
ings held recently, one in south Walton and the
other in DeFuniak Springs. Their purpose was to
find out what sort of "visions" people have for the
future of the county. They range from basic how to
attract real businesses to the county, the kind that
will stay and flourish to the highly speculative a
sports complex or performing arts center, for all
those homeless professional teams and arts com-
panies we have. As so often happens, some want to
save, some want to spend. There will be three new
faces on the County Commission this fall. I doubt
they will feel encouraged to kick things off with a:
shopping spree.
Unlike some of the visions expressed, atten-
dance at these meetings was not overwhelmingly
large. A reported eight attended one, about two
dozen the other. That should not surprise anyone,
considering the proportion who bother to vote in
this county.
Can we conclude that this means only 22-some
people here in Walton County have a vision for the
future? And only some 9,588 registered voters (26
percent) are sufficiently interested in governing to
cast their ballot? That's not a vision, that's a sight.
Either way, we'll see it.

West Nile Virus Detected in Walton County....

but I'm just a little suspicious about Ramses."

LETTER TO THE EDITOR


Editor:.
America of 1950 Compared to 2012
Senior American adults remember the 1950s
as the "golden age" of America. During that time
period, anyone that wanted to work could find a
job. Back in 1950, America was considered to be
a "land of opportunity." Millions of. manufactur-
ing businesses operated in most cities and towns.
Their finished product was sold around the world.
There was less crime, less divorce, and minuscule
personal debt. The rest of the world deeply ad-
mired the U.S. A gallon of gasoline cost about 27
cents. Redistribution of wealth was considered to
be something that communist countries did. Amer-
icans wore suits and dresses for most public out-
ings. They left their cars and front doors of their
homes unlocked. The United States loaned money
to the rest of the world. Life in the U.S. was simple


and predictable. ,
Today, the country rides on a huge bundle of
debt. Millions of people have purchased automo-
biles and homes they cannot afford. The young
generations appear to be comfortable starting life
owing $20,000 and up in debt. Clean-cut boys and
girls are covering legs, arms, and necks with tat-
toos. Fifty years ago, a drunken sailor put a tattoo
on his arm and regretted it the next day.
I am 80 years old and in my boyhood years, many
homes did not have running water or electricity. It
was not unusual to see a family with a horse and
buggy as their transportation. In my opinion, we
may return to those hard times. Those that will be
most affected have no idea where our once great
United States is headed.

I ETERTOTH EITOR


Editor:
The DBPA 4th of July celebration was a huge
success. Thanks to Carolyn Mora and her crew the
parade was very colorful and long. Carla Hulion
had lots of choices for the kids to choose from in the
children's activity area. Thanks in part to some of
those running for office and some of our business-
es.
The band "Crossroads" was a great hit and we
hope to have them back soon. Brian Coley and the
DFS Fire Department put on a grand show with
the fireworks display. All in all it was a wonderful
day.
A big thank you goes to Ronnie Bell for his work
in cutting on the golf tournament at Blackstone


that helped raise funds for the 4th. We did fall
short in raising the funds to cover the event so we
must work twice as hard for next year.
We are looking to hold another golf tournament
this fall to kick off raising funds for the 2013 cel-
ebration.
The DeFuniak Springs Economic Development
and Tourism Committee has held three events
since January. One was for snowbirds, the second
was on Baldwin Avenue and the last was a movie
night in the lake yard. The DBPA was one of the
sponsors of that event.

Editor:
County Highway 2 is very important to the citi-
zens of the northern part of Walton County. It has
been torn up for three long months now. There was
a small section of that road washed out in the last
real hurricane we had several years ago. It was a
very small section that was washed out, approxi-
mately eight feet across. It was repaired with a
culvert about four feet in diameter. The roadway
was a little rough, but it was much better than a


thirteen mile detour. Why they would tear up a
road when they were not able to repair it, I cannot
imagine.
Now we in the northern part of the county do
not have a lot of money, but we are very careful to
vote every chance we get, and we remember those
officials who leave our roads in such a mess as
this.

I ET ER TO TH E ITOR-


Editor:
Last week I called the Tax Collector's Office to
inquire about driver license renewal. My license
and my son's are coming up for renewal. Since the
location has changed for the process I wanted to be
sure there were no surprises at renewal time.
The information was pretty routine, copy of
birth certificate, social security number, two verifi-
cations of residence. Small problem. Since my son
and I are primary caregivers for my mother, his
residence has been with us for the past two years.
"Not to worry," I was told, I could sign a paper to
verify his residence. However, to prove my valid
identity for the signature I have to provide the
requirements for my driver's license renewal. Big
problem. In addition to the usual requirements, I
have to provide documentation of any name chang-
es from birth to present. This I was told is a new


requirement by Homeland Security that the state
of Florida has adopted. Bigger problem.
After numerous phone calls. over a three-day
period to obtain information to acquire the docu-
mentations from three states, including Florida
I found that in order to obtain the documents by
written request I have to include the pertinent in-
formation, the fee, and a copy of my valid, driver's
license. The same license I have to have the docu-
ments to renew. Imagine that. But, in all cases the
documents are available by phone or the Internet
with a credit card, the latter of which I do not own.
Go figure. Let me think, haven't I been hearing a
lot about the most common source of identity theft
is credit card fraud, and usually by the Internet?
What is wrong with this picture?

Burn victim benefit


Aug. 31, Sept. 1


On Aug. 8, 2012, my
grandson was throwing
away a pan of grease
that was about to catch
on fire. In carrying it
outside to throw away,
he slipped and fell down
the doorsteps and the
hot grease burned him
on his right arm, and
side.
He is in University
of South Alabama Hos-
pital located in Mobile,
Ala.,in the Burn Cen-

and a new baby on the
way. The family is try-

him, to help with all the
medical bills.
Any money dona-

meetings.
The board will hold
a general meeting on
Wednesday, Sept. 12,
beginning at 5:30 p.m.
refreshment time, and
meeting begins at 6 -8

will bring residents and
tourists to town. RSVP
by calling Melinda at
(850) 835-4834. If you
forget to call, come any-
way.
Now is the time
when the county and
city hold their budget
workshops.
The county is hold-
ing their millage rate
the same as last year.
It is 3.5563. The budget
public hearings to adopt


the millage rate will be
on Monday, Sept.10, at
5:01 p.m. at the south
Walton Annex and in
DeFuniak Springs on
Sept. 24 at 5:01 p.m.
The city has proposed
making a change to
their rate. This year it
is 4.0 and the proposed
rate for 2012-2013 is
4.5 mills. The city has
maintained a 4.5 mill-
age rate since the 1989-

the exception of this
year's budget.
The city's public
hearings are Tuesday,
Aug. 28 at 5:30 p.m.;
Monday, Sept. 10 at

This is a time when we
can really give back to
the people who shop
and do business with
us.
Call Carolyn Mora to
sign up to come down-
town with us. Her num-
ber is (850) 892-3950.
They have a great time


seeing all those goblins.
They would also like to
do a pumpkin contest
between businesses this
year. A really cute idea
is to pumpkin people
that look like your busi-
ness.
For example, a doctor
and nurse pumpkin, or a
musician pumpkin, or a
pumpkin that looks like
a banker. Let's come up
with some really cute
ideas. They will have a
CD with more ideas at
the general meeting.
And as sure as sum-
mer follows spring,
Hometown Christmas
follows Halloween.
They will need lots of
help. Anyone interested
in volunteering some
time contact SaraK at
(850) 830-1661 or (850)
835-4834.
Hometown Christ-
mas is also a good time
to think of ways of get-
ting people into local
business's. Let DBPA
help because they have
some great ideas.
It will also be time to
nominate people to the
DBPA board of direc-
tors. If interested, call
or send an email to de-
funiakdbpa@aol.com.

DANGERS


ing counties, such as
Bay and Okaloosa have
been inundated with
them. WCSO investi-
gators told the Herald
that meth is the num-
ber one problem they
are dealing with here in
Walton.
Florida Department
of Law Enforcement
Crime Lab Analyst Su-
pervisor Joseph Graves
gave an hour-long pow-
er point presentation to
the large group on how
synthetics are made and
where they come from,
and updated attendees
on new laws that went
into effect in July 2012
to fight against the im-
ported menace.
Grave said that most
all of the chemicals
used in both synthetics,
including the chemi-
cals sprayed on the
plant substance for the
synthetic cannabis are
usually imported from
China. Chemists work-
ing for drug importers
are quick to stay one
step ahead of law en-
forcement statutes by
changing the chemical
structure often.
"We had 50 of these
chemicals deemed un-
lawful by the Florida
Legislature in July of
this year. But these im-
porters have chemists
that change just one
molecule or part of the
chemical structure and
then, it's not unlawful.
I would estimate that


in all of the evidence we
receive, only close to 5
percent fall under the
new law. Almost 95 per-
cent of those samples do
not fall under the new
laws due to changing
so rapidly and legisla-
tion not being able to
keep up," Graves said.
The products are also
labeled "not for human
consumption" so they
do not fall under the
Food and Drug Admin-
istration (FDA).
One way might be
through a new extend-
ed and updated ana-
logue law that Graves
said he is hoping will
be picked up and spon-
sored by someone in the
Legislature. He said
that almost 25 percent
of the lab's workload is
devoted to synthetics
confiscated by law en-
forcement and has risen
over the last few years.
"It definitely takes up a
lot of our lab time," he
added.
Graves said that
the synthetic canna-
bis is made up of dif-
ferent plant materi-
als which are sprayed
with a chemical added
to acetone to liquify it.
This leads to problems
with consistency. "If
he person making this
stuff is using it, they
might spray one place
twice and another two
or three times so the
doses the person who
buys it gets are varied

be thinking about this
for action in the future.
Councilman Harold
Taunton said, "It has
come to my attention
that the city attorney is
not covering Ben Green-
slait with his legal mat-
ter."
Adkinson replied,
that in regards to the
issue concerning certifi-
cation, he doesn't know


if there is a conflict
there are some o
matters that ma:
criminal charges an
thinks that those is
are a conflict.
Adkinson advise
Council that he c
the mayor last
when he became a
that there were ce
investigations goin
If those investiga


and that's when they
consume too much and
freak out or end up in
the news. It's some re-
ally crazy stuff they use
and they have no real
idea what they are re-
ally getting. It's very
different from what the
plant that grows in the
ground is like, but it
affects the same struc-
tures in the brain that
pot or marijuana does."
Manufactures of
both synthetics, salts
and cannabis are mak-
ing a killing in more
ways than one, Graves
added, "Most of these
chemicals are being
imported from China
and chemists in China,
although Homeland
Security has picked up
and started stopping
more imports. Someone
who gets their hands on
these can spend around
$6,000 on everything
they need to manufac-
ture and end up mak-
ing around $3 million
off of that $6,000." Most
of these synthetics can
be found at convenience
stores, record or head
shops or online. They
do not show up in rou-
tine drug tests making
them even more attrac-
tive to users and harder
to identify in the field,
Investigators told the
audience that users of
the bath salts have told
them they are more ad-
dictive than even meth
after one use.

port. And if you are
charged or somebody
sues you or the city in
a civil matter, the in-
surance company and
myself would represent
you, but when it in-
volves a possible crimi-
nal matter, that perhaps
relates to matters with-
in this city, no, that's a
different situation....My
first role is here to this
Council and not to Chief
Greenslait. And I didn't
want to get myself in a
conflict with Ben with
me giving him advice
about how he should
respond to any investi-
gation. And that is why
I recommended to Ben,
and I have talked to the
mayor about this, that
he should seek indepen-
dent counsel for advice
for any interviews that
anyone would conduct,
especially in regard to
any criminal matter."


Side effects of the
drugs can be very deadly
including convulsions,
elevated heart rates,
increased blood pres-
sure and disorientation.
Paranoia, hallucina-
tions, bizarre behavior
and the shedding of
clothes due to extreme
elevations in body tem-
perature are also side
effects and many recent
attacks blamed on the
synthetics were of one
person attacking anoth-
er or a family pet after
consumption.
It is a third-degree
felony to possess these
salts and a second-de-
gree felony .to sell, de-
liver, or possess with
intent to sell. Synthetic
cannabis falls under
the same laws as can-
nabis as far as criminal
charges.
Graves said he
doesn't see the new
"designer drugs" slow-
ing down any time soon
because "there are hun-
dreds of compounds
that can be used to skirt
the new law." He added
that different states
have different laws and
people can try to travel
to buy them in a differ-
ent state. "You're very
lucky here, in this part
of Florida. The law en-
forcement in this area
have really been on top
of trying to get this re-
moved from the commu-
nity."
After Graves' pre-
sentation, investigators
with the WCSO spoke
with the audience about
meth production, signs


and strategies of deal-
ers and manufacturers
and the new "shake
and bake" process that
many addicts and man-
ufacturers are using.
They told the audience
that meth is the number
one drug issue they are
dealing with. Even with
the new law requiring a
photo ID and the insti-
tution of Meth Check,
linking pharmacies to-
gether, users and mak-
ers are trying to find
ways around the laws to
get the supplies needed.
One investigator told
the audience, "Before
the new identifica-
tion law, we dealt with
many separate groups
and it wasn't hard to
track one person to the
others in their group.
Now, it's not so easy be-
cause they have formed
super-groups to get
their supplies and it is
more complicated to fig-
ure out who is working
with who sometimes."
They also showed a
film on the new "shake
and bake" method of
meth production. Al-
though the method cuts
down on trash and by-
products that cookers
used to leave behind
(making homes and
neighborhoods toxic),
it is very volatile dur-
ing its approximately
hour-long process, and
can explode into a fire-
ball if the container is
not opened regularly
during the process to
be "burped." The rem-
nants of this process
are still toxic. A recent
hotel explosion on Oka-
loosa Island was from a
"shake and bake" meth
production. During this
type of production, the
chemical smell associ-
ated with meth produc-
tion is only during the
cooking process, mak-
ing it a little harder for
officers to smell during
a traffic stop or search
warrant. Although it
has not happened yet,
investigators fear that

due to the high volatil-
ity of the method, they
will likely interrupt a
production in the future
and it could be deadly.
Staring earlier this
year, Investigators said
the "shake and bake"
labs are starting to be
more prominent than
the red phosphorous lab
they were used to deal-
ing with before.
Some of the items
used in a "shake and
bake" lab include lithi-
um batteries, lighter flu-
id, lye and other items.
Investigators said the
lithium batteries not
only added heat to the
process, but seemed to
make users' symptoms
even worse mentally
and physically.
Investigators said
it is an all-consuming
process trying to keep
up with the production.
"We fight it day-by-day
and try to stay on top of
it. We do our best."
Others officers be-
lieve that even more
drastic measures may
one day have to be de-
ployed, "I think in the
future, it may be far
off, but in the future we
may see this issue mov-
ing to where doctors
end up prescribing de-
congestants instead of
them being behind the
counter to cut the sup-
ply even more. It just
a terrible drug and the
destruction from it is so
widespread."
Signs of meth use
can be paranoia, scabs
and sores and constant
picking at skin, rotting
teeth from the chemi-
cals used, and other in-
dicators.

Rape Aggression


Defense System


sponsored by WCSO


Walton County Sher-
iff Michael Adkinson
and the Walton County
Sheriffs Office (WCSO)
are bringing R.A.D.
(Rape Aggression De-
fense System) to the cit-
izens of the community.
R.A. D. Systems(tm) is
the National Standard
in Self Defense Educa-
tion.,
The R. A. D. System
is a program of realistic
self-defense tactics and
techniques for women.
The R.A.D. System is a
comprehensive, women-
only course that begins
with awareness, preven-
tion, risk reduction and
risk avoidance, while
progressing on to the ba-
sics of hands-on defense
training. R.A.D. is not a
martial arts program.
Our courses are taught
by nationally certified
R.A.D. Instructors and
provide each student
with a workbook/refer-
ence manual. This man-
ual outlines the entire
Physical Defense Pro-
gram for reference and
continuous personal
growth, and is the key
to our free lifetime re-
turn and practice policy
for R.A.D. graduates.

R.AD. Systems Fre-
iaeitly Asked Ques-


1. L you need any
prior e-erience to at-
tend thi class? Do I
need to bein top physi-
cal shape to partici-
pate?
No. Thi. program


is designed for the av-
erage woman with no
previous experience or
background in physical
skills training.

2. What is the cost of
a basic program?
The average cost
for the Basic Physical
Defense program for
women is free through
the Walton County
Sheriffs Office. Some
instructors offer this
program as a commu-
nity service through the
local police department.
Many colleges and uni-
versities offer the RAD
program as a credit
course. Check with the
instructor in your area
for more detailed infor-
mation.

3. Is this program
one person's opinion?
The RAD program as
it appears today is a re-
sult of the contributions
of many RAD instruc-
tors across the United
States and Canada.

4. How many women
have taken this pro-
gram?
To date, over 250,000
women have attended
RAD Basic Physical De-
fense Program.

5. How long is this
program?
The Basic Physical
Defense program is a
minimum of nine hours
up to a semester long
for those instructors
who teach for college
credit.


6. Can I bring my
younger daughter with
me?
Yes. It is very com-
mon for mothers and
daughters to attend
this program together.
In addition to develop-
ing and enhancing their
options of self-defense,
it seems to be a great
bonding experience for

Walton School District Report on Student Progression

The Florida legislature mandates that school districts will annually report the progress of
students in reading, writing, mathematics and science to their parents and guardians.
Additionally, districts must publish the following information in local newspapers.

Policies and Procedures on Retention and Promotion

General Policies

No student may be assigned to a grade level based solely on age or other factors that constitute
social promotion or administrative placement. Promotion procedures assure that students promoted
within the district can benefit from the next grade level of instruction and that those who earn a diploma
from high school have met or exceeded all the requirements described by the State of Florida and by the
Walton County School Board. Promotion decisions are based upon the following:
9 Progress tests
Classroom assignments and performance tasks
Daily observation
State and district tests
Proficiency in reading, writing, and mathematics
Mastery of the Sunshine State Standards as outlined in the various Grade Level Expectations; and/or
Other objective data

Elementary Promotion Criteria
Grades K-2
Promotion from grades K, 1 and 2 is based on evidence the student has met the Next Generation
Standards or Common Core Standards in reading and math as indicated by a final grade of "D" or above,
or through evidence of mastery of the standards as determined through class or individual assignments,
projects, portfolios, skills checklists, performance tasks, norm-referenced and/or locally determined
assessments.
Grade 3
Promotion from third grade is based on evidence the student has met the Next Generation Standards or
Common core Standards in four or more academic subjects, three of which must be reading, language arts
and mathematics. Science and social studies are considered academic subjects. Mastery is indicated by a
final grade of"D" or above, or through evidence of mastery of the standards as determined through teacher
observation, class or individual assignments, projects, portfolios, skills checklists, performance tasks,
norm-referenced and/or locally determined assessments, AND evidence the student achieved a score of
Level 2 or above on the FCAT Reading Assessment as specified in s. 1008.25, F.S or met the requirements
for a Good Cause Waiver. The School Board may only exempt students from mandatory retention for good
cause.
Grades 4-5
Promotion from grades 4 and 5 is based on evidence the student has met the Next Generation Standards
or Common Core Standards in four or more academic subjects, three of which must be reading, language
arts and mathematics. Science and social studies are considered academic subjects. Mastery is indicated by
a final grade of "D" or above, or through evidence of mastery of the standards as determined through class
or individual assignments, projects, portfolios, skills checklists, performance tasks, norm-referenced and/or
locally determined assessments.
In grades K-3, students who are unsuccessful in meeting the grade level promotion criteria may be
considered for a waiver of these criteria based upon the good cause exemptions defined by State Board
Rule. Students may be exempted from mandatory retention for good cause (1008.25(5)(b) F.S.). Good
cause exemptions shall be limited to the following:
a. English Language Learner students who have had less than two (2) years of instruction in an
English for Speakers of Other languages program.
b. Students with disabilities whose individual education plan indicates participation in the state
assessment program is not appropriate. State Board Rule 6A-1.0943 specifies that such students
must have a demonstrated cognitive ability that prevents them from completing required
coursework and meeting the Next Generation Sunshine State Standards or Common core
Standards, even with appropriate and allowable course modifications and require extensive
direct instruction to accomplish the application and transfer of skills and competencies needed
for domestic, community living, leisure and vocational activities.
c. Students who demonstrate an acceptable level of performance on the SAT-10 alternative
assessment. State Board Rule sets acceptable levels of performance as a score at or above the
45th percentile on the SAT-10 or the 51st percentile on a parallel form of the SAT-9. The earliest
the alternative assessment may be administered for promotion purposes is after the Grade 3
FCAT reading scores have been received from the state or the last two weeks of school,
whichever comes first.
d. Students who demonstrate, through a student portfolio, that they are reading on grade level
as evidenced by demonstration of mastery of the Next Generation Sunshine State Standards
or Common Core Standards in reading equal to at least a level 2 performance on the FCAT.
The Third Grade Assessment Portfolio created by Beacon Educator in partnership with Just
Read; Florida! and following guidelines set forth by the state will be utilized to verify level 2
performance.
a. Students with disabilities who have an IEP or Section 504 Plan reflecting they have received
intensive remediation in reading for more than two (2) years but are still deficient in reading and
have been previously retained in Kindergarten, Grade 1, Grade 2 or Grade 3.
b. Students who have had a progress monitoring plan in reading two (2) or more years and were
previously retained in kindergarten, grade 1, grade 2 or grade 3 for a total of two (2) years. If
a student is promoted under this exemption, he/she must receive intensive reading instruction
that includes an altered instructional day based upon a progress monitoring plan that includes
specialized diagnostic information and specific reading strategies for each student. The district
shall assist schools and teachers to implement research-based reading strategies that have shown
to be successful in improving reading among low-performing readers.
Any student who is retained may be assigned any time during the first reporting period of the next
school year to the next higher grade upon recommendation of the teacher and approval of the Principal and
parent, if it has been determined the standards have been met and the student will benefit from instruction


at the higher grade level.

Middle Grades Promotion Criteria
A student shall earn three academic units each year to be promoted from grade six or seven.
Academic units include language arts, mathematics, science and social studies. Prior to being promoted
from grade 8, a student must have earned three academic units in all four subject areas. Additionally,
students must have earned three physical education units prior to exiting the middle grades.

High School Promotion Criteria
A student must have been duly promoted from Grade 8 in order to enter Grade 9.
A student must earn five credits to be promoted to grade 10, eleven to be promoted to grade 11 and
eighteen to be promoted to grade eleven.
An exceptional education student who has been properly staffed into a special program is assigned to
a grade according to the recommendation of the IEP Committee.
An LEP student may be retained only by the decision of an LEP Committee. LEP students who are
identified as being substantially below grade level in reading in English, but who are proficient in their
home language may not be retained.
High school students will be required to earn 24 credits to graduate.

honey in the making


by Lisa Windham
Honey bees busy at work
in their hives can be found in
the back yard of Lakewood,
FLresidentDave Curran. He
currently manages fifteen
hives (nests) with each hold-
ing between 20,000-60,000
bees. Each hive usually pro-
duces around 50 pounds of
honey.
Curran's interest in bee-
keeping began shortly af-
ter he retired and moved
back to the area. When he
began suffering from sinus
problems and after many
visits to doctors; he found
out that he was allergic to
bahia grass. His doctor ad-
vised him to go home and
find the most local honey,
"as near to your backdoor as
you can get" and start tak-
ing a tablespoon each day.
Upon following this advice
and within two weeks, Cur-


ran says his sinus problems
improved. This, he said, re-
ally peaked his interest in
learning more about the art
of beekeeping.
Curran, age 72, is a re-
tired airline captain and
attended of the University
of Georgia, graduated from
Embry-Riddle Aeronautical
Institute and is currently
enrolled in Northwest Flori-
da State University and the
University of Florida. He is
actively working toward a
master beekeeping certifica-
tion from the states of Ala-
bama, Florida and Georgia.
He is licensed to keep honey
bees in Alabama and Flori-
da.
History suggests that
honey bees were brought to
North America around 1622
by the early settlers. How-
ever, rock and cave paint-
ings indicate that man was


hunting and harvesting
honey as far back as 6,000
BC. Today, beekeeping is
spread over almost all the
habitable parts of the world
and according to official sta-
tistics produces over 2 bil-
lion pounds of honey a year
from more than 50 million
hives. This amounts to a $15


billion contribution to the
economy. The United States
is ranked third worldwide in
honey production.
Honey bees are social
insects that depend on
each other for survival. A
hive consists of a queen bee
(one per hive), worker bees
(female) and drone bees


(male). The average lifespan
of the queen is 2-5 years,
drone is seasonal (spring to
fall) and worker 40-45 days
(spring to summer) and 4-6
months (fall to winter). The
only job of the drone is to
mate with the queen to pro-
duce offspring. Workers are
responsible for nurturing
the queen, protecting .the
hive, keeping it clean and
flying thousands of miles to
gather food. They will sting
to protect the hive but die
after doing so. The two ob-
jectives of a hive are to sur-
vive over the winter and to
reproduce.
To make one pound of
honey, the colony of bees
will visit 2 million flowers,
fly over 55,000 miles and
will be the lifetime work of
approximately 300 bees. An
average worker bee makes
about 1/12th of a teaspoon
of honey in her lifetime. The
bees forage for nectar/pollen
usually within a 3.73 mile
radius of the hive and some-
times up to 6.21 miles and
can fly up to 15 mph. Pol-
len is gathered on the hind
legs of the worker bees to be
transported back to the hive
and converted into food to
feed the young larvae.
In addition to honey, a
hive will produce wax (used
as an ingredient in candles,
soap and cosmetics), pollen


(health food), propolis (med-
ical properties and glue),
apitherapy (human health
aids) and royal jelly (health
food). Propolis is used by the
bees to cement holes and
seal up the hive, it is gath-
ered by worker bees from
tree and shrub secretions.
Honey bees must con-
sume about 17-20 pounds of
honey to be able to biochem-
ically produce each pound of
wax. The wax is formed into
a comb of hexagons, it is
used for nurturing offspring
and storing honey. To ex-
tract the honey, the combs
are removed from the hive,
the wax cap is removed and
the combs are placed into
an extractor. The honey is
slung from the comb, col-
lected and filtered. Honey is
the only food that includes
all the substances necessary
to sustain life, including wa-
ter and it never spoils.
Bees are very important
as they pollinate/cross pol-
linate one-third of the crops,
fruit and berries that people
consume. They are the only
insect that produces food for
humans. The only continent
that does not have bees is
Antarctica.
Curran said, "Beekeeping
is a fascinating hobby and
the human race could learn
alot from how a hive works
together."

resident, Dave Curran.

PROPOLIS or "bee glue" can be seen at the right of this
photo. It is used to seal up the hive and is gathered from tree
and shrub secretions.


BEES ENTER and leave the hive to go about their work
of gathering pollen and nectar.


WORKER BEES are shown capping off the honeycomb.


STEPS IN THE HONEY MAKING PROCESS
Honeybees visit flowers to gather nectar and pol-
len, in doing so, pollen grains are transferred from
one flower to another thus aiding pollination.
The worker bee stores the nectar in a honey
stomach, which is separate from her digestive
stomach. When the honey stomach is full, the bee
returns to the hive. The bees also collect pollen in
hair-like "baskets" on the their hind legs, but nev-
er on the same trip as gathering nectar. Pollen is
mixed with honey to make food for the hive.
Other workers meet the returning bee to receive
her nectar, using a mouth to mouth transfer. En-
zymes are added to the nectar in the bee's honey
stomach to break the complex sugars into a simple
sugar. It is barely recognized as honey at this point
as it is nearly 80% water.
Small droplets are deposited inside the hive
awaiting final conversion to honey. This is an
evaporation process aided by the 95 temperature
maintained inside the hive and the movement of
air across the honey combs. The bees coordinate
fanning their wings to control the air movement
until the honey reaches a 17-18% moisture con-
tent.


WHILE DISASSEMBLING THE HI'E for inspection.
Curran uses a bee suit to protect himself from stinging
bees.


THE BEES ARE BUSY building the wax hexagon combs
which they will fill with honey. The combs are capped with
wax by the bees only when the honey is "ripe" and contains
less than 18% water.


HONEY... the finished product

Dear Auntie Em,


Dear Auntie Em

I have a relationship
problem that I would
like your opinion on.
When my husband and
I first got married we
both agreed we wanted
to start a family very
soon. It's been two years
since we were married
and he now said he is
not sure he wants to
ever have children. He's
been under a lot of pres-
sure from his work and
we are not in the most
stable place emotion-
ally or financially right
now, but I am dying to
have a baby.
I have thought of
stopping my pills and
not telling him and just
get pregnant. I thought
he would be happy with
the news and I could
just blame it on the
pills not working. I re-
ally don't want to lie to
my husband, but I feel
lied to now that he said
he changed his mind.
What do you think?

Deceptive in DeFuniak

Dear Deceptive,

First, DON'T DO
IT! OK, now that I've
got that out of the way,
let me explain a little.
Having a child with
your husband, who
doesn't want children
right now, is the worst
thing you could do in


my opinion. If he finds
out the truth, you have
lost your husband's
trust and he might re-
sent the child. If your
* marriage fails, you will
now be locked into a re-
-lationship, filled with
animosity, for the next
18 years as you share
this child's life. Not a
good place to start.
Secondly, how is
this all fair to a child?
I know if you wait 'til
the right time, it will
never come according to
what all the old timers
always said to me, but
you need to fix what is
broken first, before you
bring another person
into it, namely a baby.
Last, but not least,
you and your husband
need to get on the same
page. I would recom-
mend counseling from
a trained relationship
professional or worst
case scenario, dissolve
the relationship if you
can't work this out.
Children are a deal
breaker for many cou-
ples and instead of liv-
ing out your life with
someone who does not
want the same things as
you and does not have
the need for children as
you do, in my opinion,
you should consider if
it is still the right rela-
tionship for you. This is
not something couples
battle over, like the re-
mote or leaving dirty


socks on the floor. This
is your future and the
life of your future chil-
dren. Life is short. Too
short to live with some-
one who does not have
the same goals as you. I
hope you can reach deep
down inside and find the
courage to speak with
your husband, get him
to consider counseling
or at least discuss hon-
estly and openly what
you both really need
from your relationship
and life to be happy and
fulfilled. Deception will
not lead you to a happy
or healthy place. Put-
ting on your big girl
undies and being hon-
est is the only way to go
on this one in my opin-
ion. Good luck and God
bless.

Hating the Haters

By Ronnie McBrayer


Several years ago,
on the courthouse steps
of the town in which I
lived, there was a rally.
A homosexual couple
in our community was
seeking -to become fos-
ter parents. You can
imagine the kickback
that erupted in a small
Southern town.
But it wasn't just the
members of our com-
munity who were most
vocal in protest. Gath-
ered on the courthouse
steps of our fair city
were representatives of
a religious group from
Washington. D.C. and
points beyond, to speak
out in holy fury.
I strolled. up the
:- street to -check it-out5
' aid what I foiid there
was horrifying. Laced
with scripture quota-
tions and shaking the
abysmally familiar
"God Hates Fags" signs,
speaker after speaker
raged with some of the
most vicious and hate-
ful words I have ever
heard. I could not be-
lieve how angry and
poisonous it was.-
One of the police of-
ficers watching over the
proceedings walked up
and asked me, "What
do think about this,'
preacher?" I knew this'
officer. He was a good
man but did not consid-
er himself a Christian.


So, I turned his question
around and asked him
what he thought about
it. He answered, "This
is why you all ought to
keep your church and
Bible to yourself."
Dorothy Sayers was
fond of saying that Je-
sus endured three great
humiliations: The In-
carnation, the cross,
and the church. Jesus
has subjected himself
to a spastic, debilitated,
malfunctioning body; a
body called the church.
And rather than com-
municating clearly the
love and grace of God,
we obscure and twist
the message so that it
cannot be heard cor-
rectly.
That is what I felt
most strongly as I stood
near the court house
steps on that afternoon.
These people, exercising
their freedom of speech
for which I am so very
thankful and for which
I would go to the wall,
were attaching hateful
words and spiteful talk
to the name of Christ.
Somehow, in the con-
vulsive twisting of the
body of Jesus, the mes-
sage was twisted. I felt
ashamed.
The following Sunday
I fumed from my own
church pulpit about how
we are called to love our
neighbor as ourselves -


even the people we just
positively know that
God condemns. Love
your neighbor with, a
love that goes beyond
feeding their dog or
keeping an eye on their
home while they are
out of town. No, to love
your neighbor as you
love yourself, I right-
fully said that Sunday,
is to love whoever you
come across, whoever is
in need, no matter who
they are.
If they live across
the street or on another
continent; if they are
black or white; if they
are straight or gay; if
they are Latino or An-
glo; if they are of my
political persuasion or
.not; if they are Chris-
tian or Muslim; if they
are my buddy on the
bar stool beside me or
someone I would never
shake hands with, they
are my neighbor. As a
follower of Christ my
responsibility is to love
them and not condemn.
Oh, it was a virtuous,
unfettered, holy tirade;
and I felt so very good
after it was delivered.
But over the course of
the .next few days all
my good feelings ebbed
away. These feelings
were replaced by genu-
ine conviction of heart.
I realized that what
had made me feel do

"good," and what even-
tually disturbed me
about myself was this:
I hated the people who
were hateful. I did not
love them as my neigh-
bors instead, I loved
condemning them. My
actions were nothing
more than a variation of
the words and behavior
I found so repugnant.
Street preachers
railed against and hat-
ed homosexuals, abor-
tionists, teenagers with
tattoos and piercings,
and the like. In my
righteous indignation, I
fumed against and con-.
demned them. We were
all wrong.
Opinions, conviction,
beliefs: We all have
them and we all have
the freedom to express
them. But the moment
our beliefs are used as
motivation and means
to hate others, we have
left the path of Christ
who taught us that the
greatest commandment
is to love.

Stanley
Mrs. Pauline McCor-
mick Stanley of West-
ville, Fla. (Royals Cross.
Roads Community)
passed away quietly af-
ter a short illness at the
Wiregrass Medical Cen-
ter in Geneva, Ala., sur-
rounded by loved ones
and friends on Thurs-
day, Aug. 16, 2012. She
was 83.
Funeral services
were Sunday, Aug. 19,
in the Leonia Baptist
Church with Rev. Rodd
Jones and Rev. Stacey
Stafford officiating.
Burial followed in the
Hurricane Creek Bap-
tist Church cemetery
with Sorrells Funeral
Home of Geneva direct-
ing.
Contributions may
be made to the Leonia
Baptist Church Build-
ing Fund, 1124 Gill-
man Rd., Westville, FL

Mrs. Stanley was
born May 16, 1929, in
Geneva County, Ala., to
the late William "Bill"
and Etta Mae Mor-
ris McCormick. After
working 51 years in the
shirt factory industry


for West Tex/Covington
Industries in Samson,
Ala. she decided to re-
tire in 1998 to devote
her time to doing the
things she loved; which
was being more active
in her community and
church, working in her
flower beds and vegeta-
ble gardens.
After a few months
into her retirement
she found herself need-
ing to fill the "work"
void in her life. Thus,
she found a new call-
ing for her and Perry.
She decided they would
become a baby sitter.
Never did they envision
the love, happiness, and
joy one little boy named
"Crete" would bring to
their lives. She was a
member of Leonia Bap-
tist Church where she
served in many differ-
ent capacities. Every-
one that knew her will
remember her for her
faith and dedication to
God, her strong work
ethics, and for being
a loving wife, mother,
friend and neighbor.
In addition to her
parents, her husband,
Perry D. Stanley, Jr.,
and a sister Voncille
McCormick, preceded
her in death.
Survivors include
one son and daugh-
ter-in-law, Charlie D.
"Chuck" and Linda
Stanley, Westville; one
sister, Lorene Johnson,
Florala, Ala.; two broth-
ers, Wilbur H. "Buddy"
McCormick, Samson,
Ala., and Bennie Mc-
Cormick, Florala and
other extended family
and friends.

Fla., the oldest child
of Mr. and Mrs. Lewis
Cawthon. She married
Roy. E. Mitchell and
lived the early years in
Pensacola, Fla., where
her son, Dale Walker
Mitchell, was born.
During those years, she
was a devoted wife and
loving mother, as well
as a dedicated college
student. She received
her college degree and
began a successful ca-
reer as a high school
mathematics teacher in
the Escambia County
School System. Mrs.
Mitchell was a favorite
among her students as
she presented the chal-
lenges found in high-
level math classes.
Upon her retirement,
she and her husband
returned home to De-
Funiak Springs. In Nov.
1986, Mrs. Mitchell
joined the First Baptist


Kelley


Rilla was born,
raised and educated in
Rolla, Mo. She started
life on June 23, 1917.
She succumbed to life
on Sunday, Aug. 12 af-
ter a massive stroke on
the evening of Aug. 7.
She was employed by
the then United Tele-
phone Company. She
transferred to Fort My-
ers, Fla., in the early
1970's to train the em-
ployees of a newly ac-
quired company in the
conversion to comput-
ers. Prior to that she
spent most of the 60s
traveling throughout
the Midwest training
the many United em-
ployees in the computer
conversion.
She liked Fort My-
ers and remained there
until her retirement in
1984 after 42 years with
the company.
Rilla was a "work-
a-holic" her entire life.
As a single Mom she
routinely worked two
jobs to support herself
and her son, Bill. That
routine changed little
in Fort Myers. First
she earned an associ-
ate degree from Edison
Community College in
1977. Shortly after she
took the H & R Block
tax preparers course,
went to work for Block
evenings and weekends
during tax season and
retired from Block in
2009 after 30 years of
service. One of her most
prized accomplishments
was that she was an en-
rolled agent to present
cases before the IRS.
She is preceded in
death by her mother,
Della Wycoff of Fort My-
ers and Rolla, Mo.; her
father, Ross Thompson


of Rolla, Mo., and her
prior husbands, Roy
Wycoff of Saint James
and Ralph Kelley of Sa-
lem, Mass.
She is survived by her
son Bill, and his wife,
Roberta (Bert) of Free-
port, Fla.; her brother,
Robert Thompson; his
wife, Gretchen; sister,
Susan Hand, both of
Rolla; three grandchil;
dren, Chris and Doug
Wycoff, and their wives,
Lynn and Lisa, both of
Tampa, Fla., and Terri
Thurber and her hus-
band, Peter of Pensacola
Fla.; four great-grand-
children, Tim, Brittney
and Jessica Wycoff of
Tampa and Brian Mc-
Nitt of Pensacola, Fla.,
and of course, many,
many friends from all
around the country. She
touched a lot of people
in her life.
Burial and memo-
rial service will be held
in Rolla, Mo., Saturday
Sept.1, at 2 p.m.
Visitation with fam-
ily will start at 1 p.m.
prior to the service.
Arrangements are
under the direction of

IIe little knew that day.
God was going to call your name.
In life we loved you dearly.
In death, u'e do the same.

It broke our hearts to lose you.
You did not go alone.
For part of us went witith you.
Th/ day God called you home.

You, left us beautiful memories.
Your love is still our guide.
.4And although wue cannot see you,
You are always at our side.

Our family chain is broken.
And nothing seems the same,
But as God calls us one by one,
The chain will link again.


I'e miss you,

Security plan to be

implemented for

South Walton Annex


By DOTTY NIST
Plans are for a se-
curity system identical
to the one in operation
at the -Walton County
Courthouse to be put in
place at the South Wal-
ton Courthouse Annex.
At the Aug. 14 Wal-
ton County Board of
County Commission-
ers (BCC) meeting,
Walton County Sheriff
Mike Adkinson brought
forth concerns related
to "rancor, vitriole, and
hyberbole" observed on
the part of people at-
tending BCC meetings
in recent months.
Adkinson was quick
to say that it is impor-
tant for citizens to have
the ability to express
their views, but that
the security of everyone
attending county meet-
ings is also important.
Adkinson referenced
a recent shooting inci-
dent at a school board
meeting in neighboring
Bay County. He also
noted that an individual
who had attended many
Walton County BCC
meetings a number of
years ago had ended up
shooting five people.
In February 2009,
Walton County resident
Dannie Roy Baker shot
five foreign exchange
students at a Miramar
Beach apartment com-
plex, resulting in the
death of two of those
people, who were Chil-
ean nationals. In March
2011, Baker was sen-
tenced to life without
parole.
Adkinson comment-
ed that he believed the
commissioners could
see that more diligence
in providing security at
the annex was a "real.
necessity."
Members of the pub-
lic entering the county
courthouse in De-
Funiak Springs are re-
quired to step through
a scanner and also have
items they are carrying


scanned for detection of
any weapons. Although
Walton County Sheriffs
Office deputies are pres-
ent at all BCC meetings
at the courthouse and
at the annex, no scan-
ning system is in place
at the annex.
Adkinson said he ex-
pected to have funds in
his office's budget suf-
ficient to pay for the
installation of a secu-
rity system identical to
the one in place at the
courthouse. He also
thought that he could
provide personnel to op-
erate the system with-
out hiring additional
employees, by means of
a secondary detail.
District 4 Commis-
sioner Sara Comander
asked whether the sys-
tem would be utilized
only for the commission
chamber at the annex--
-or whether it would be
located near the front
door of the annex to pro-
vide security for consti-
tutional officers located
within the annex.
Adkinson indicated
that his plan would be
for the security system
to be utilized for all of
the annex building.
Asked about the
wooden scanner-type
object at the entrance to
the commission cham-
ber at the annex, Ad-
kinson said it had been
purchased in 1986 and
was not operational.
Adkinson added that
the safety of people
with disabilities who at-
tend county meetings is
also a concern for him.
He said his office had
discussed a plan to uti-
lize volunteers and golf
carts for transporting
these people between
their vehicles and the
meeting room.

The BCC voted 4-0 to
allow staff to work with
Adkinson to move for-
ward with the security
system for the annex.

LOGGERHEAD HATCHLING, part of this season's record nesting num-
bers in Walton County.


South Walton TDC and South Walton Turtle Watch Report


Record Turtle


Nesting Season


By all accounts, 2012
has been a record one for
south Walton's beaches.
Bed tax revenues are at
an all-time high, with
16 straight months of
double-digit increases
as of June reporting. It
has also been a record
year for sea turtle nests,
with 115 nests recorded
along south Walton
beaches as of .Aug. 10.
With record numbers
of tourists sharing the
beach with record num-
bers of turtles, the focus
must be one, of coexis-
tence.
"We've got two and a
half times the number
of nests on our beaches


this year over last," said
Sharon Maxwell, direc-
tor of South Walton
Turtle Watch. '"With so
many more turtles and
so many more people,
it's more important
than ever for beachgo-
ers to 'leave no trace.'
This means not only
removing all items from
the beach each night,
but also filling in holes
in the sand and turning
off beachfront lighting.
Turtle hatchlings will
instinctively follow the
first point of light they
see to direct them to
the water. If that light
is not the moon, but
.artificial lighting from


a condo balcony, they
will not make it to the
Gulf. If their paths are
blocked by beach toys or
impeded by holes, they
will not make it to the
Gulf. When you're only
about two inches long
and operating strictly
on instinct, virtually
everything is an obsta-
cle."
Several years ago,
in an attempt to pre-
serve the destination's
popularity with na-
ture-minded travelers,
south Walton adopted
Leave No Trace, a set

WRWF makes


donation, hears


from county officers


THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, AUGUST 23,2012


By DOTTY NIST
The Walton Republi-
can Women Federated
presented a check of
more than $3,000 to go
to the Wounded War-
rior Project at the club's
Aug. 15 meeting.
"This is a small way
of saying thank you,"
WRWF President Kar-
en Schibler said as the
check was presented.
The club had held a
white elephant sale in
May to raise money for
the donation.
Michelle Underwood,
a community readiness
specialist who works
at Hurlburt Field, ac-
cepted the check on the
behalf of the Wounded
Warrior Project, assur-
ing the WRWF mem-
bers that the funds
would be used in the
best manner to benefit
injured servicemen.
Founded in 2003,
the Wounded War-
rior Project works to
raise awareness about
the needs of service-
meh injured in current
military conflicts---and
enlists the public's aid
in meeting those needs
through a variety of ser-
vices and programs. The
project also assists the
families of the wounded
warriors.
Walton County Tax
Collector Rhonda Skip-
per had been scheduled


to address the WRWF.
However, she could
not attend due to the
deployment of her son-
in-law to Afghanistan.
Cory Godwin, chief
deputy tax collector,
attended in Skipper's
place.
"We believe that
government can be run
like a private business,"
Godwin told the group.
His comments revealed
that the tax collector's
office places a great
deal of importance on
staff training. He said
the office consults with
partners such as Zap-
po's and Chik-fil-A for
assistance in develop-
ing training programs.
Godwin said the tax
collector's office now av-
erages just a 2 minute,
3 second wait time be-
fore people are helped.
The tax collector's of-
fice recently began issu-
ance of drivers' licenses
in DeFuniak Springs
and Godwin said this
service should be avail-
able at the Santa Rosa
Beach location by Octo-
ber.
Bobby Beasley, Wal-
ton County supervisor
of elections, also ad-
dressed the group. Bea-
sley said there has not
been any .problem in
Walton County with il-
legal aliens being regis-
tered to vote. However,


he encouraged anyone
knowing of any illegal
alien registered to vote
to contact his office.
Beasley expressed
disappointment with
the voter turnout for the
Aug. 14 Primary Elec-
tion, which was 26 per-
cent. However, he said,
Walton County did ex-
ceed the state average
for voter turnout, which
was just 20.3 percent.
"Democracy works
best when people par-
ticipate," Beasley com-
mented
"We dodged a re-
count bullet," Beasley
said, explaining that
the top two candidates
for the District 5 county
commission race were
separated by only 1.66
percent of the vote for
the primary. When a
candidate wins by one-
half percent, a machine
recount is required, he
said, and a hand re-
count is required when
the win is by one-quar-
ter percent.
Poll workers were
very dedicated and put
in a 14-hour day, Beas-
ley noted. Results were
in by 7:30 p.m. follow-
ing the election, he
said. Beasley said his
web site, www.votewal-
ton.com, slowed down
due to so many people
trying to access it to
see the election results.

lotte Flynt, WRWF immediate past president (right.) (Photo by Mike Flynt,


WRWF associate member.



He said he and his staff
would work on remedies
to prevent a slowdown
after the next election.
Beasley said he an-
ticipated a much higher
turnout for the General
Election. He reported
that there was a 74-per-
cent turnout for the last
presidential election in
Walton County---and
said he would not be
surprised at an 80-per-
cent turnout turnout for
the upcoming election.
Early voting for the
election begins on Oct.
27, and Election Day is
Nov. 6.
Beasley encouraged
people to get a sample
ballot prior to the elec-
tion and mark it for
reference when vot-
ing, particularly since
there will be a number


of lengthy constitution-
al amendments on the
ballot.
He referred attend-
ees to his office's web
site for nonpartisan in-
formation on judges.
Beasley noted that,
by law, people voting
absentee are required
to file a new absentee
ballot request after two
general election cycles.
"We don't always agree,
but it's the law," he re-
marked.
Beasley urged club
members to convey their
appreciation to the can-
didates, since running
for office requires much
time, money and effort.
Even candidates who do
not win their races ren-
der an important ser-
vice to voters by provid-
ing them with a choice,


he commented.
Club members were
asked to bring with
them to the next WRWF
meeting items to be
distributed to home-
less veterans. Along
with monetary dona-
tions, needed items
include: individually-
packaged snacks and
drinks; baked goods;
popcorn kernels; clear,
quart-sized plastic zip-
per bags; paper towels;
plastic or foam plates;
eight-ounce plastic or
foam cups; and micro-
wavable food not re-
quiring refrigeration.

The meeting is sched-
uled for Sept. 19, and
the featured speaker is
to be State Represen-
tative Marti Coley (R-
Marianna).


VISION

had approved a docu-
ment developed through
those meetings entitled
"Walton County Down
the Road."
Among the objectives
identified in the docu-
ment were: incorpora-
tion of environmental
resources with develop-
ment; pursuit of eco-
nomic development;
use of best develop-
ment practices on trav-
el routes; aligning the
Walton County Compre-
hensive Plan with the
vision plan priorities;
exploration of trans-
portation alternatives,
promotion/increasing
awareness of Walton
County's natural beau-
ty and interrelationship
between economic de-
velopment and environ-
mental assets; putting
additional recreation
and open space areas
and multi-use paths in

place; improving service
to the military and mili-
tary service industries;
developing/strengthen-
ing public-private part-
*nerships for delivery
of community services;
preservation and identi-
fication of historic sites;
fostering/promoting the
county's unique char-
acter; and supporting
local agriculture, from
both an economic and
a community heritage
standpoint.
Comander said it was
her hope that everyone
could work together
with one vision and
make' Walton County
"what we want to see."
She observed that
people come to Walton
County because of its
quality of life.
Comander asked at-
tendees for their ideas
with regard to capital
projects that would be


needed in Walton Coun-
ty within the next 10 to
15 years. Among her
own suggestions were
additional beach park-
ing, possibly buses to
transport people to the
beach, improvements to
the bicycle/pedestrian
path network, expan-
sion of the recycling
program, and a Wal-
ton County Fire Res-
cue facility in the Rock
Hill area to be used for
training. She also told
attendees that she is
committed to trying to
turn DeFuniak Springs
into a senior-friendly
community.
There was some en-
thusiasm among attend-
ees for the development
of a sports complex. Co-
mander discussed the
possibility of combining
such a complex with a
convention center, with
the facility to be funded


through bed taxes.
Others called for a
look ahead at what type
of development such a
facility would encour-
age, including the mo-
tels that could spring
up around it, and urged
that planning for trans-
portation to and from
the facility should pre-
cede. consideration of
such plans.
Susan Lucas called
for a performing arts
center to nurture cul-
tural life and improve
quality of life in Walton
County.
Others called for
more promotion to
visitors of areas of the
county other than the
beaches, among those
the rivers, the Choctaw-
hatchee Bay and Morri-
son Springs.*
A trolley or other
mass transit system to
get cars off the roads in
south Walton was dis-
cussed, along with the
need to plan for areas in
which the trolley could


pull over for loading
and unloading.
Mike Flynt urged a
look at the South Wal-
ton Conservation and
Development Trust
Plan, which was devel-
oped in public meetings
during the mid-1990s
per the request of the
state. He was of the
opinion that the trust
plan had created a good
model for future devel-
opment and preserva-
tion, but that the coun-
ty had not adequately
followed through with
its recommendations.
Meg Nelson lament-
ed the fact that the
community has come
up with "incredible" vi-
sions in the past, but
that those have not
been implemented.
Glenda Wood identi-
fied communication as
the biggest problem for
the county.
In agreement, Jac-
quee Markel suggested
a citizens' advisory
committee to aid com-


munity voices in reach-
ing the ears of county
commissioners. The
commissioners have the
South Walton Tourist
Development Coun-
cil (TDC), an advisory
board representing the
tourism community,
Markel reasoned, so
there should be such a
panel representing the
rest of the community.
Comander pledged to
bring that idea, along
with the others put forth
by attendees, 'before the
county commission.
She said she thought
it would be best to wait
until November, when
three new commission-.
ers are scheduled to
take office, to look at
setting up the citizens'
advisory committee.

The visioning meet-
ing was videotaped by
Ray Zukowski to be
posted on the web site

entirety.


SEASON]


to assist outdoor en-
thusiasts with ways to
reduce their impacts on
natural environments.
"Visitors often tell us
they repeatedly return
to our beaches for their
natural beauty and
pristine condition, and
we continually strive
to preserve our status
as an eco-friendly des-
tination," said Dawn
Moliterno, executive di-
rector of the South Wal-
ton TDC. "In addition
to enforcing the Leave
No Trace program, the
South Walton TDC pro-
vides $80,000 annually
to fund South Walton
Turtle Watch in their
mission to preserve
and protect endangered
sea turtles. We are ex-
tremely encouragedby
our joint effort's notable
success."
That partnership
seems to be working.
Currently, all sea tur-
tles native to U.S. wa-


FROM PAGE 1-C


ters are listed under
the Endangered Spe-
cies Act (ESA) and are
under the joint jurisdic-
tion of NOAA Fisheries
and the U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Service, who
mandate the parame-
ters under which South
Walton Turtle Watch
and other similar agen-
cies must operate. Ac-
cording to Maxwell,
Walton is one of only
three counties through-
out Florida and the only
one on the gulf coast to
have four of the five
nesting sea turtles log-
gerhead, green, Kemp's
Ridley and leatherback
- establish nests on its
beaches. The vast ma-
jority of nests belong to
the loggerhead, but the
first nest of the season
was that of the rare
Kemps Ridley, and an-
other of those has since
been counted. There
are also one green and
one leatherback nest.


Because leatherbacks
are considered criti-
cally endangered, its
nest was widely cel-
ebrated. South
Walton Turtle Watch
maintains a nest count
separate from the local
state parks. "Our count
is currently at 95, with
Topsail Hill State Pre-
serve reporting 12 nests,
Grayton Beach State
Park reporting six, and
Deer Lake State Park
reporting two. Before
this year, the previous
record was 58 nests in a
single season. On July
10 another record was
broken, marking the
first time ever seven
nests were discovered
in a single day. By all
accounts, the number
and variety of nests has
been phenomenal this
season, due in part to
the enforcement assis-
tance provided by the
South Walton TDC,"
noted Maxwell.


The TDC employs a
full-time code enforce-
ment officer to monitor
adherence to the Leave
No Trace program. The
beaches are patrolled at
various times of the day
to ensure compliance,
with education being
the primary goal. "Once
people understand the
reasons behind the pro-
gram, they overwhelm-
ingly support us in
our efforts to keep our
beaches free of obsta-
cles," said code enforce-
ment officer Jeff McVay.
"Items left on the beach
and holes in the sand
can present a danger
in several ways. Not
only are they hazArd-
ous to nesting turtles
and their hatchlings,
but they're a danger to
people, too. They pres-
ent tripping hazards
to those walking the
beach in dim light, and
prevent responding ve-
hicles from having clear
access in emergencies."
Walton County's pol-
icy is to place a warn-
ing tag on items left on
the beach aftersunset.


If those items remain
there during follow-up
patrol 24 hours later,
they are removed and
disposed of. "We know
that not everyone is fa-
miliar with the Leave
No Trace program, so
the warning tag was de-
veloped to offer beach-
goers a grace period.
We'd prefer not to have
to remove anyone's
items, and feel that 24
hours is ample time to
comply," said McVay,
adding that the tags
are printed with a tele-
phone number to call
with questions regard-
ing the program.
In addition to its
code enforcement offi-
cer, the South Walton
TDC recently employed
a beach ambassador
to help educate beach-
goers about Leave No
Trace and other rules
of the beach. "As with
beach safety, education
is key," says Jon Ervin,
TDC director of mar-
keting and communica-
tions. "Because we wel-
come new visitors every
week, the message must


be repeated often that
we are all responsible
for the care and mainte-
nance of these beaches
that so many love so
dearly. This is the per-
fect example of it taking
a village to maintain
the priceless natural re-
source that is valued so
highly by our locals and
visitors. Ultimately,
each of us is responsible
for their preservation."
Turtle nesting sea-
son runs from May 1
through Oct. 31 annual-
ly. Beachgoers who come
across turtle hatchlings
should contact the Wal-
ton County Sheriffs Of-
fice at (850) 892-8186.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, AUGUST 23, 2012

; ^ tL ^'1 '-1 t -t l i lJ-


The end to the summer season is fast ap-
proaching us, and with that, the tourists re-
turn back to their own habitat, traffic becomes
a little more tolerable (until the snowbirds ar-
rive) and the official beginning of "shoulder
season," descends on us. But that doesn't mean
the beaches are closed and no one wants to
venture out before next March.


Since the Memorial
Day rush hit the Em-
erald Coast, there has
been a onslaught of traf-
fic jams, long waits at
restaurants, and a fight
for a parking spot. It has
been a non-stop parade of
tags crossing the bridges,
ranging from Alabama
and Georgia, to Tennes-
see, Louisiana and Mis-
souri.
An endless array of
families, conventions,
beach-goers, vacation-
ers, wedding parties, and
a host of everyone else,
seems to want a piece of
our heaven. But now that
they have experienced
our piece of heaven, they
have all headed back to
their own homes, and the
beaches and roadways
are beginning to show
just local tags, and a few
stragglers who wanted
to take advantage of the
quieter beach times.
But just because
schools around the coun-
try have started up for
the fall, that doesn't


mean our beaches are
closed and the tempera-
ture drops to a day-time
high of 50. It simply
means the weather will
eventually cool off, the
cultural scene along the
coast comes alive, and
there are fewer crowds
trying to get to the
beach.

Despite a slow Au-
gust and early Septem-
ber on the coast, due to
events not being sched-
uled because of heat and
inclement weather, the
middle part of Septem-
ber through the end of
November offers plenty
to keep locals as well as
any tourists, on the go.
Listed below are a few of
the upcoming local and
regional event taking
place:
Seaside Community
Yard Sale: Oct. 6, 8 a.m.-
2 p.m. The Merchants of

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

The Department of Environmen-
tal Protection gives notice of its
intent to issue an environmental
resources permit for Oyster Lake
Outfall Improvements, number 66-
0148564-006-EI, to Walton County
Board of County Commissioners, at
117 Montgomery Circle, DeFuniak
Springs, Florida, 32435.

The purpose of the permit is to au-
thorize removal of a three barrel
concrete box culvert and installa-
tion a concrete span bridge approxi-
mately 45 feet west of the existing
box culvert, rerouting the Oyster
Lake outfall, and removal a residen-
tial driveway.

The project will be located on
Highway 30A, adjacent to Oyster
Lake, at Latitude 30 degrees, 21
minutes, 6.52 seconds North, Lon-
gitude -86 degrees, 14 minutes
49.65 seconds West, in unnamed
wetlands, Class III Waters of the
State, Santa Rosa Beach, Walton
County.

Based on all the above, and with
the application of general and limit-
ing specific conditions of the permit,
the Department has reasonable as-
surance the project, as proposed,
fully meets the environmental re-
sources permitting requirements of
Chapter 62-346, Florida Adminis-
trative Code, and will not harm the
environment.

A person whose substantial in-
terests are affected by the Depart-
ment's action may petition for an
administrative proceeding (hearing)
under Sections 120.569 and 120.57
of the Florida Statute. The petition
must contain the information set
forth below and must be filed (re-
ceived by the clerk) in,the Office of
General Counsel of the Department
at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard,


Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Flori-
da 32399-3000.

Because the administrative
hearing process is designed to re-
determine final agency action on
the application, the filing of a peti-
tion for an administrative hearing
may result in a modification of the
permit, or even a denial of the ap-
plication. Accordingly, the applicant
will not commence construction or
other activities under this permit
until the deadlines below for filing a
petition for an administrative hear-
ing, or request for an extension of
time, have expired.

Undersubsection 62-110.106(4)
of the Florida Administrative Code,
a person whose substantial inter-
ests are affected by the Depart-
ment's action may also request an
extension of time to file a petition
for an administrative hearing. The
Department may, for good cause
shown, grant the request for an
extension of time. Requests for
extension of time must be filed with
the Office of General Counsel of
the Department at 3900 Common-
wealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35,
Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000,
before the applicable deadline. 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 requesting
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 petition for an administra-
tive hearing is filed, other persons
whose substantial interests will be
affected by the outcome of the ad-
ministrative process have the right
to petition to intervene in the pro-
ceeding. Intervention will be only
at the discretion of the presiding
officer upon the filing of a motion in
compliance with Rule 28-106.205 of
the Florida Administrative Code.

In accordance with subsection
28-106.111(2) and subparagraph
62-110.106(3)(a).4, Florida Ad-
ministrative Code, petitions for an
administrative hearing by the appli-
cant must be filed within 21 days of
receipt of written notice. Petitions
filed by any persons other than the
applicant, and other than those en-
titled to written notice under Section
120.60(3) of the Florida Statutes,
must be filed within 21 days of pub-
lication of the notice.

Under Section 120.60(3) of the
Florida Statute, however, any per-
.son who has asked the Department
for notice of agency action may file
a petition within 21 days of such no-
tice, regardless of the date of publi-
cation.

The petitioner shall mail a copy
of the.petition to the applicant at the
address indicated above at the time
of .filing. The failure of any person
to file a petition for an administrative
hearing within the appropriate time
period shall constitute a waiver of
those rights.

A petition that disputes the
material facts on which the Depart-
ment's action is based must contain
the following information:

(a) The name and address of each
agency affected and each agen-
cy's file or identification number, if
known;
(b) The name, address, and tele-
phone number of the petitioner;
the name, address, and telephone
number of the petitioner's repre-
sentative, if any, which shall be the
address for service purposes during
the course of the proceeding; and
an explanation of how the petition-
er's substantial interests are or will
be affected by the agency determi-
nation;
(c) A statement of when and how
the petitioner received notice of the
agency decision;
(d) A statement, of all disputed is-
sues of material fact. If there are
none, the petition must so indicate;
(e) A concise statement of the ul-
timate facts alleged, including the
specific facts that the petitioner
contends warrant reversal or modi-
fication of the agency's proposed
action;
(f) A statement of the specific rules
or statutes that the petitioner con-
tends require reversal or modifica-
tion of the agency's proposed ac-
tion; and ,
(g) A statement of the relief sought
by the petitioner, stating precisely
the action that the petitioner wishes
the agency to take with respect to
the agency's proposed action.

A petition that does not dis-
pute the material facts on which
the Department's action is based
shall state that no such facts are
in dispute and otherwise shall con-
tain the same information as set
forth above, as required by Rule
28-106.301, Florida Administrative
Code. Under Sections 120.569(2)
(c) and (d) of the Florida Statute, a
petition for administrative hearing
must be dismissed by the agency
if the petition does not substantially
comply with the above requirements
or is untimely filed.

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

This permit, when issued, con-


stitutes an order of the Department.
The applicant has the right to seek
judicial review of the order under
Section 120.68 of the Florida Stat-
ute, by the filing of a notice of ap-
peal under Rule 9.110 of the Florida
Rules of Appellate Procedure with
the Clerk of the Department in the
Office of General Counsel, 3900

panied by the applicable filing fees

appeal. The notice of appeal must
be filed within 30 days from the date
when the final order is filed with the
Clerk of the Department.

Requests for review before the
Land and Water Adjudicatory
Commission must be filed with the
Secretary of the Commission and
served on the Department within 20
days from the date when the final
order is filed with the Clerk of the
Department.

ing normal business hours, 8:00
a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through

Chat Holley Road project set for completion


By DOTTY NIST
After being on hold for
more than six months,
remaining portions of
the Chat Holley Road
improvement project
are to be completed, in-
cluding the installation
of a traffic light at the


road's intersection with
U.S. 331.
Chat Holley Road
is an important route
intersecting with U.S.
331 and running west
just south of the Choc-
tawhatchee Bay.
On Aug. 14, the Wal-


LOCAL ARTIST KEVIN NALL, OF MOSSY
HEAD, worked made a career in commercial art
but took up sand sculpting about seven years ago
and has worked in the medium ever since. Nall,
along with friend and mentor Mark Flynn, who
first showed him how create artwork from beach
sand, regularly collaborate on large sculptures
for local businesses, but Nall's real passion is for
quick sculptures made during his frequent trips to
Walton County's beaches. "It's all about promoting
our beautiful beaches," Nall said. "It's always fun
when people see you working on a sand sculpture,
because, no matter whether you're 3 or 83, this is
something art-related that anyone can do with a
little practice. "(Photo courtesy of the Nall family.)


ton County Board of
County Commissioners
(BCC) approved pro-
ceeding with the con-
stuction of the signal-
ized intersection, along
with the improvement
of a remaining short
section of road.
Completed in Janu-
ary on Chat Holley
Road were three miles
of rdad widening, drain-
age improvements, and
two new bridges, along
with a multi-use path.
The county received
grant funds from the
state Department of
Transportation (DOT)
for the road improve-
ment project, and in
2010, DOT gave per-
mission for $1.025 mil-
lion in funds from the
county's Proportional
Fair Share account to
be used for right-of-way
purchase and improve-
ments at the intersec-
tion, which were to in-
clude the traffic light
and turn lanes.
However the project
encountered difficul-
ties and delays. In Sep-
tember 2011, approxi-
mately a year after the
purchase of a half-acre
parcel at the Chat Hol-
ley Road/U.S. 331 in-
tersection to be used
as right-of-way, county
officials and staff were
made aware of a 1917
deed. The deed led to
the question whether,
in buying the parcel,
the county had paid for
property it had already
owned. There was also
an ownership dispute
between the county and
the Holley family, who
own property near the
east end of Chat Holley
Road.
An independent re-


view of the purchase
transaction for the right-
of-way parcel found that
Walton County had not
paid for property the
county already owned.
However, the indepen-
dent counsels' review
revealed a history of
survey problems in the
area due to the lack of a
government marker on
the northeast corner of
the section line directly
north of the property-
--and the possibility of
gaps or overlaps in that
area between the county
property and that of ad-
jacent property owners.
The counsels recom-
mended that the county
seek an agreement with
those property owners
to establish that bound-
ary line.
Ownership issues
in connection with the
right-of-way parcel
have up to now delayed
construction of the re-
mainder of road project
and the intersection im-
provements.
Now, according to
1ouis Svehla, Walton
County public infor-
mation manager, the
county attorney's office
has indicated that all
boundary issues related
to the right-of-way ac-
quisition have been re-
solved. Svehla also said
that a right turn lane
planned for the county
right-of-way parcel has
been shortened to avoid
impact on adjoining
property owned by the
Holley family.
It had previously
been anticipated that
it would be necessary
to realign the intersec-
tion to a perpendicular
alignment, but Svehla
said DOT is not requir-
ing this, and the inter-
section is to remain at
an angle.
The intersection im-
provements are to in-


clude dedicated left and
right turn lanes, along
with the traffic light.
The BCC recently ap-
proved -that $437,701
be transferred from
the Proportional Fair
Share account to fund
those improvements,
along with the reloca-
tion of utilities, engi-
neering and inspection
costs. Svehla said the
$437,701 is part of the
$1.025 million in Pro-
portional Fair Share
funds that DOT previ-
ously approved for use
on the intersection proj-
ect.
A lawsuit filed
against the county in
October 2011 by Mira-
mar Beach resident Su-
zanne Harris challeng-
ing the purchase of the
right-of-way parcel is
ongoing. However, alle-


gations of improprieties
in connection with the
purchase transaction
that were originally
part of the lawsuit have
either been dropped or
struck from the com-
plaint by the court. The
one remaining count of
the lawsuit alleges that
the county violated the
law through the reten-
tion of George Ralph
Miller, the special legal
council who oversaw
the purchase transac-
tion for the right-of-way
parcel, outside of public
session.
The remainder of the
road project and the
intersection improve-
ments are to be con-
structed by, the C.W.
Roberts Company and
are anticipated to be
operational by mid-De-
cember.

Alys Beach announces

onaugural 5K and 1-mile

Fun Run scheduled Sept. 2


Grab your running
shoes, the race to Labor
Day weekend is on. On
Sunday, Sept. 2, Alys
Beach will hold its in-
augural Alys Beach 5K
and 1-mile Fun Run.
Located along Scenic
Highway 30A in North-
west Florida, Alys Beach
is a popular location for
family beach vacations
and holiday getaways
and the 2012 Labor Day
weekend will be packed
with fun for the entire
family.

"Since health and
fitness is such an inte-
gral part of life at Alys
Beach, we thought a 5K
Fun Run would be the
perfect addition to our
fall calendar of events,"
said Kelli Siler, senior
events manager at Alys
Beach. "Our goal is to
create a family-friendly
event that our home-
owners, guests and visi-
tors to 30A and South
Walton can look forward
to year after year."
The 5K course begins
and ends at the Alys
Beach Amphitheatre,
and winds through-


out the 158-acre resort
town, offering spec-
tacular views the town
architecture, diverse
natural habitat and
stunning white sand
beaches. The course in-
corporates the nature
trail, which meanders
through 22-acres of
pristine wetlands on
the north end of Alys
Beach, as well as some
of the town's newer
developments and the
Gulf Green on the south
side of 30A.
The event will also
include a one miler just
for kids. Alys Beach
knows kids just want
to have fun so the team
created a shorter one-
mile course that is kid-
friendly. Parents are
welcome to tag along
as a chaperone, but this
race is designed specifi-
cally for children age 12
and under. At the com-
pletion of the race, all
participants will each
receive a medal. The
amphitheatre will be
the race headquarters
and kids of all ages will
have fun cooling down
in the splash fountain


and playing in the over-
sized inflatable obsta-
cle course. Music and
Piper's Snack Bar and
Charlie's Doughnuts
will enhance the festive
atmosphere and day of
family fun.

Registration is avail-
able online through Ac-
tive.com and advance
pricing for the 5K Fun
Run is $20 for adults
and $10 for kids (ages
12 and under). The
1-Mile Fun Run is also
$10 for kids ages 12 and
under. On-site registra-
tion is $35 for adults.
Packet pick up will be
held on Saturday, Sept.
1 at Fonville Press from
10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and
Sunday, Sept. 2 at the
Amphitheatre from 6
a.m. to 7:30 am. The
5K Race begins at 8 am
and the 1-Mile Fun Run
begins 9:30 a.m. at the
Amphitheatre. Due to
the differing course ter-
rains, including sand,
stone, grass and board-
walks, all-terrain stroll-
ers are advisable. To
