Voters may decide later this year
whether to raise sales tax levied in
Okaloosa County to 6.5 percent,
from 6 percent, to fund public-
school projects.
The proposed tax, which
amounts to an increase of 8.3 per-
cent, would generate an estimated
$131 million before expiring in 10


years. It would cost a typical fami-
ly of four nearly $200 a year,
according to school district esti-
mates.
The Okaloosa County School
Board, acting on the recommenda-
tion of Superintendent of Schools
Alexis Tibbetts, voted 4-1 Monday
to ask the county commission to
put the measure on a countywide
ballot Aug. 24.


If voters approve the tax, the
estimated $131.5 million in new
revenue would be spent only on
buildings, repairs and equipment,
Tibbetts said.
School Board Member Howard
Hill, the lone dissenting vote, said
that while the need was real, it was
the wrong time to add another tax
on the backs of struggling taxpay-

Tibbetts presented a 10-year,
capital-improvement plan for all 37
district schools, including two new
ones in Crestview. It includes such
projects such as renovating bath-
rooms, paving, replacing old tech-
nology, and upgrading heating and
cooling equipment, ranging from a

Fire district

development


in BWB area

By Mike Griffith
Beacon Correspondent
A 10-year plan recently approved by the
North Bay Fire Commission gives some insights
into further growth in Bluewater Bay, Seminole,
and other areas included in the fire district.
The North Bay Fire Commission earlier this
month accepted the plan, which was drafted by
Fire Chief Joseph
Miller. It is intend-
ed to help the fire

within the district.
The North Bay Fire Control District includes
unincorporated communities between Rocky
Bayou and County Line Road. In his plan, Miller
wrote that he expects to see continued growth of
the area within the next decade.
Civilian developments in the district, Miller
wrote, include the ongoing construction of a
Mid-Bay Bridge Connector, commercial devel-
opment, and continued growth of residential
housing.
"The opening of the Mid-Bay Bridge in June
1993 has had a positive effect on both the resi-
dential and commercial development in the dis-
trict," Miller wrote. "However, on the negative
side, the traffic on State Road 293 and Highway

Valparaiso casts an eye on future


By Del Lessard
Beacon Staff Writer
Valparaiso's mayor has asked city
commissioners to think about the city's
future and to help shape it. The public
will also get a chance to contribute,
according to municipal officials.
During a city commission meeting
earlier this month, Mayor Bruce Arnold
said commissioners and department
heads, and later the public, should begin
thinking about long-range plans for
Valparaiso and to put those ideas down


in a written plan. The eventual more useful if he had a priority

by

members
and oth-

knew
her, dur-
ing her
funeral
service at
Heritage Vanessa Pitts
Gardens cemetery in Niceville
on Saturday, April 24.
Known to some by the


nickname "Mariposa," or but-
terfly, Vanessa was described
as, "more than the apple of her
parents' eye, she was and
always will be the light of
their life," according to a writ-
ten statement given to atten-
dees.
The 25-year-old Niceville
resident was killed in San
Antonio, Texas, April 12 while
fighting to regain her purse
from a thief. According to a
police report, she was refuel-
ing her vehicle at a gas station
when a man snatched her
purse. She confronted the
man, who sped off in a pickup

Two brothers who police said
were planning to join their moth-

in the robbery of a loan business
in Valparaiso.
Valparaiso police reports gave
the following account:
Two men entered Pay Day

Thursday afternoon and robbed
the lone employee of an undis-

Sweet time at Saturday in the Park

The Heritage Museum's 34th annual Saturday in the Park festival in Valparaiso had an estimated turnout of about
2,000. There was something for nearly everyone. Children participated in a watermelon-eating contest. Car
enthusiasts saw antique cars and talked with their owners. Musicians, including some from area schools, per-
formed on the two stages. Crafters exhibited their wares, and the museum and others presented history exhibits.

Wal-Mart Stores Inc. has
valued its planned "super-
store" in Niceville at $4.7
million.
The Bentonville, Ark.,
retailer last week applied for a
city building permit for the
long-discussed store on John
Sims Parkway behind the
Century 21 office.
The 153,283-square-foot
Walmart Superstore is expect-
ed to be completed by the end
of 2010, according to
Niceville building officials.
The planned outlet is smaller
than other superstores built by
the retail giant primarily
because it will not have an
automotive and tire center. In
addition to clothing and other
general merchandise, it will
include a grocery store and a
garden center.
The permit filed at the
office of the Niceville build-
ing inspector's office April 20
by the building contractor-
Shannon, Strobel & Weaver
Constructors & Engineers
Inc., of Auburn, Ala.-gave
the estimated cost of the con-
struction project as
$4,730,467. That is in addi-

Mart paid Valparaiso Realty
for the 17.6-acre site.
The building permit cost
the company $16,910 in city
fees, plus $1,505 designated
for a state "Radon Gas Fund."
Niceville Building Inspector
Don Baccadutre said the city
expects to reap additional
building permit fees from sub-
contractors working on the
project.
Valparaiso Realty has
cleared about 40 acres of
land-including the 17.6
acres it sold to Wal-Mart-for
a planned shopping center
north of John Sims Parkway,
near the intersection with
Redwood Avenue and Revell
Drive. Valparaiso Realty offi-
cials have previously stated
that they expect other retailers
to ask for space in the shop-
ping center once the center-
piece, Walmart, is committed.
Separately, Wal-Mart is
asking Niceville for an excep-
tion to the city's sign ordi-
nance to allow for a larger
sign area, (585 square feet, or
more than twice the legal
maximum of 233 square feet)
on the Niceville store. The
city's planning commission
will consider the request May

Fireworks fund tops $21K


After a one-year hiatus, the
Twin Cities Independence Day
fireworks display is sched-
uled to resume in 2010,
thanks to a campaign spear-
headed by the city of
Niceville. Pictured, the last
show, in 2008.

By Mike Griffith
Beacon Correspondent
There is more than $21,000 in
the city fireworks fund, according
to Niceville City Manager Lannie
Corbin.
Corbin said he expects to have
between $34,000 and $40,000
available in time for this year's
Independence Day fireworks
show. Valparaiso is also helping to
raise funds for the event.
"This show will be our biggest
yet," Corbin said, adding that the
2010 fireworks display will fea-
ture "hi--l-.i shells than last time,"
as well as large speakers placed on
Boggy Bayou to play music to


accompany the show. In the past,
spectators who wanted music with
their fireworks had to bring radios
and tune them to cooperating
radio stations.
Corbin said the city's alu-
minum-can recycling project has
been a large source of funds for
the fireworks show. "I hope this
tradition never dies," he said of the
annual display.
There was no fireworks show
last year, after no organization
stepped forward to take over the
long-standing annual event from
the chamber of commerce, which
said it couldn't afford to continue
its sponsorship.


Toll meeting changed


The Mid-Bay Bridge
Authority announced that
its next governing board
meeting is now scheduled
for May 5, rather than May
6 as previously announced.
According to authority
spokeswoman Cathy
Demoreski, the May 5


meeting will be held at
Niceville City Hall at 9 a.m.
She said the change in
meeting date resulted from
"an unforeseen schedule
change."
A possible toll increase
is scheduled to be discussed
at the meeting.

An article April 21 mis-
spelled the name of a man
who has had a street named
after him in Seminole. His
name is Marvis Adams.

A Lackland Air Force
Base, Texas, spokesman said
Vanessa Pitts of Niceville had
the rank of airman first class
when she died in a confronta-
tion with a purse snatcher in
San Antonio April 12. The
base identified Airman 1st
Class Pitts with a lower rank
when it issued a previously
reported statement about her
death.

At least 41 teams in Relay for Life


By Kenneth Books
Beacon Staff Writer
Forty-one teams have signed
up for the Niceville-Valparaiso
Relay for Life Friday and
Saturday in the Niceville High
School stadium. In addition, there
may be guest teams from
Crestview and Fort Walton Beach.
Relays in both those cities were
canceled because of heavy light-
ning last weekend, so the
American Cancer Society extend-
ed an invitation to them to join


with the Twin Cities fund-raising
event.
The track will be bordered with
luminaria, or sand-anchored bags
containing lit candles, from
Niceville and Fort Walton Beach,
according to Dee Hayhurst, the
American Cancer Society com-
munity representative in charge of
the Niceville Relay.
This year's theme is "TV
Shows." Niceville's monetary
goal is $130,000, the same as
Crestview's, while Fort Walton


Beach teams hope to raise
$185,000.
Already signed up from the
Twin Cities area are: First United
Methodist Church, Valparaiso
Elementary, Bluewater
Elementary, Edge Elementary,
Addie Lewis Middle School,
Parkway Veterinarian, Ruckel
Middle School, TCWC, Curves,
BB Survivor and Friends, Holy

SWhat do you think about the Pentagon's decision to uninvite evangelist Franklin Graham from

about previous remarks by Graham linking Islam to terrorism and the mistreatment of women?


"I think it's a travesty.

government is trying to
do away with both. The

"According to the First

unconstitutional of the

FUTURE
From page A-1
Vanlandingham has present-
ed a tentative "wish list" of city
projects that could be consid-
ered among Valparaiso's long-
range needs: upgrades to sewer
lift stations, new telemetry for
controlling water systems,
reuse water systems for irriga-
tion, new, reflective street
signs, larger water pipes in
some older areas of the city,
infrastructure to meet future
stormwater requirements, park
improvements, cemetery
improvements, and new public
works equipment storage
buildings.
Commissioner Heyward
Strong has suggested that the
city pursue an offer from Eglin
Air Force Base that new base
land could be made available to
the city for a new softball com-
plex. Last year the city was
forced to close Wolverine Park
softball complex on leased
base land because of safety
concerns that the park was
directly under the Eglin run-
way approach.
Commissioner Tom Miller
has suggested using the city-
owned cable system to elec-
tronically read water meters.
Commissioner Diane Kelley
has proposed looking at similar
size cities to see what grant
programs they were able to use.
Valparaiso Librarian David
Weathersford said library usage
had increased so much after the
building was remodeled and
expanded last year that a new


library building might be justi-
fied.
But City Clerk Tammy
Johnson cautioned that the city
anticipates cuts of as much as
15 percent in next year's budg-
et.
Strong also suggested the
city consider zoning changes
that would encourage owners
to replace older structures and
small lots with more valuable
properties. Many of
Valparaiso's older and smaller
homes have been converted to
rental property and have
caused some neighborhoods to
decline due to lack of upkeep,
he said.
Doug Wyckoff, the city
attorney, recommended that the
city scrap its existing land
development codes and start
over.
The Defense Department's
Office of Economic
Adjustment (OEA) has grant
money available to hire profes-
sionals for such long range
planning, Petrey told commis-
sioners. OEA funded the Joint
Land Use Study (JLUS) by
Okaloosa, Walton and Santa
Rosa counties, and 11 munici-
palities surrounding Eglin Air
Force Base last year. The
JLUS recommended some
drastic changes in development
for Valparaiso, based on worst-
case impacts of how the F-35
training center at Eglin would
negatively impact the city.
However, OEA said they would
help Valparaiso get grant
money for such studies, Petrey
said.


TAX
From page A-1
Elementary to a high of $10.9
million for Fort Walton Beach
High.
Okaloosa County has 30
schools over
40 years old,
and the
infrastruc-
ture is crum- -
bling, ,
including
sewage sys-
tems, roofs,
and drains,
Tibbetts Howard Hill
said.
The plan also calls for increas-
ing the number of computers in
middle and high schools to one
for every three students. Hill said
there is about one school-owned
computer for every five second-
ary-school students. Few if any
Okaloosa schools make general
provision for students to use their
own computers on school net-
works.
Tibbetts said that of Florida's
67 school districts, all but eight
have a local-option sales tax such
as the one she proposes, have
levied an additional millage rate
for capital expenses, or both.
The need for the additional
schools taxes, Tibbetts said, stems
from the fact that the Florida
Legislature had shifted the burden
to the local districts over the past
two years. The superintendent,
who favors such a sales-tax
increase, said that a local-option
sales tax was proposed by a group
of parents and educators.


If voters reject the sales tax,
Tibbetts said, a super-majority of
the school board could vote to
increase the millage rate by a
quarter of a mill, a property tax
increase that would raise about
$4.5 million a year.
Tibbetts said that an increase
in millage would affect only prop-
erty owners, while a sales tax
would spread the tax burden over
a larger group, with about 40 per-
cent being visitors, such as
tourists. Food, fuel and prescrip-
tion medicines would not be sub-
ject to the sales tax, she said.
Still, beginning Jan. 1, 2011,
the local-option sales tax would
cost the average Okaloosa County
resident about $48 per year until
expiring Dec. 31, 2020, according
to school-district estimates. That
would translate to nearly $200 a
year for a family of four.
Property tax is deductible for
federal income-tax purposes. The
federal deduction for sales tax
expired in 2009.
"I have to do what's right for
students and public education,"
Tibbetts said. "I know it's a diffi-
cult time," she said, but technolo-
gy doesn't stop changing and kids
don't stop learning.
Tibbetts said that while declin-
ing enrollments had caused her to
close three schools during her
term as schools superintendent,
she expects an additional 2,500
students to arrive with the Army's
7th Special Forces Group move to
Eglin next year.
Hill said the school district
needs the additional revenue but
now is not the right time to raise
taxes. "Tax is a four-letter word,"


he said, pointing to the high num-
bers of the unemployed and
under-employed.
Even if tourists pay up to 40
percent of a new sales tax, Hill
said that the tax would cost a typ-
ical local family of four nearly
$200 a year.
Hill was also critical of the 10-


year length of the proposed sales
tax.: "That's another thing that's
folly," he said.
Previous four-year, 1 percent
sales tax surcharge levied by the
school district ended July 31,
1999. It raised $77.8 million to
build three schools and hundreds
of classrooms.

20 has increased tremendously."
"Phase One construction of a
four-lane highway connector road
bypassing (White Point Road) to
connect the Mid-Bay Bridge to
State Road 20 and Range Road
has started and is expected to fin-
ish sometime in May 2011,"
Miller observed "Phase Two will
take the
connector road on to Highway 85
with an estimated completion date
of spring 2014. Hopefully, this
should eliminate the traffic prob-
lems in front of the fire station."
Miller noted that construction
of the connector road also includes
the four-laning of Highway 20
from White Point Road to County
Line Road, a project that is well
under way.
"The construction of a parallel
span of the Mid-Bay Bridge has
been pushed back and is proposed
to begin in 2018 with an estimated
completion date of 2020," Miller
stated. "This may increase the traf-
fic flow through the district and
the potential for increased growth
within our community."
"Also, the Shops at Bluewater
Bay and the Premier Sports com-
plex (at White Point Road and
State Road 20) have proved to be
a positive effect on the financial
health of the NBFCD (through
added tax collections) and contin-
ue to grow with several new proj-
ects in the planning stages. Plans
for a 130-unit Adult Living
Facility (ALF) at the comer of
White Point Road and Highway
20 is planned and should start con-
struction in 2010. There are also
plans for an Adult Living Facility
(ALF) at the comer of Lancaster
and Ida Coon Circle."
"Though the Bluewater Bay
Development Regional Impact
Statement (DRI) limits the maxi-
mum growth in both commercial
and residential structures in some
areas of the district, it does not
encompass the entire Fire
District," Miller wrote.
"Therefore, the additional growth
in areas outside of the DRI is dif-
ficult to project; for example,
areas like Lancaster Estates,
Shadow Oaks, Seminole, Indigo
Village, Raintree Estates,
Chardonnay Estates, Skipjack
Cove, Lake Pippin and the White
Point Road Corridor."
"With the Mid-Bay Bridge
connector road approved along
with the expansion of the Mid-
Bay Bridge, the potential for sub-
stantial growth along that corridor
is anticipated. With the connector
expansion connecting not only
Highway 20, but also Range
Road, and Phase Two (2), College

dents, leading him to select her as

possibility of expansion of that
area is also expected."
"The military has unveiled
proposed plans to build military
family housing in several areas of
the county, including the White
Point, Highway 20 and Range
Road areas," Miller stated. "Also
with the construction of the shop-
ping plaza in Niceville for the
new Wal-Mart and the addition of
several major stores and restau-
rants, the increase in traffic and
call volume for the district can be
expected to include (Advanced
Life Support) response."
"The growth within the
NBFCD has significantly exceed-
ed the forecast found in the 1999
Master Plan Update. As of August
2009, there are approximately
5,700 parcels within the NBFCD
and approximately 980,000
square feet of commercial proper-
ty and only light industrial proper-
ty. There are currently 241 single-
family residential lots in the dis-
trict that could be developed."
Other local officials also

of what sort of growth will actual-
ly occur, or where.

At Eglin Air Force Base,
spokesman Mike Spaits noted the
announcement earlier this year
that White Point and other areas
of Air Force land in or near the
North Bay district are under con-
sideration for military housing
areas. However, Spaits added, no
decisions have yet been made
about where such housing will
actually be built, nor are such
decisions likely in the immediate
future.
"Everything I know about the
military housing privatization
program," Spaits said, "is already
posted on the base web site, as
part of the draft Environmental
Impact Statement (EIS) for the
program." "White Point," he said,
"is just one alternative."
As for commercial or residen-
tial development along the Mid-
Bay Bridge Connector route,
Spaits said such development is
very unlikely, as the Air Force has
no plans to allow such develop-
ment on its land. Anything built
along the route, he said, would be
done by or through the military,
such as military housing, actual
military facilities like test sites, or
military-related commercial
activity. No such construction is

take for granted the people in your
lives today," he said. "They may
not be there tomorrow."


presently planned, he said.
Jim Vest, executive director of
the Mid-Bay Bridge Authority,
told the Beacon that he does not
expect any new residential or
commercial developments along
the bridge route, with two possi-
ble exceptions.
The first exception, Vest said,
might be military housing for
Eglin. The second, he said, would
be about 1,100 acres of land
belonging to Ruckel Properties
near the Ruckel Airport, recently
annexed by the City of Niceville.
That area, he said, is just south of
part of the connector route, and is
already slated for residential, and
possibly some commercial devel-
opment. That land, however, is in
the City of Niceville, not the
North Bay Fire District, although
the city and district mutually sup-
port each other for fire and rescue
work, as they also do with Eglin
Air Force Base.

Alec R. George
Sept. 6, 1962-April 1, 2010
"For I know what I have
planned for you, 'says the
LORD. I have plans to prosper
you, not to harm you. I have
plans to give you a future filled
with hope."
And so with this verse from
Jeremiah 29:11, Alec makes his
journey home, leaving his daugh-
ters Bryn Wilson (Chad) and
Leigh Ann George, wife Sandra,
his brother and best friend Skip
George, his parents Hal and Ann
George, granddaughters Ainsley
and Layla, several aunts, uncles,


cousins and a nephew.
Alec had a wonderful and car-
ing heart especially for those who
are struggling in this world. One
of the things he enjoyed most was
delivering Meals on Wheels dur-
ing his lunch hour while he was
in the Air Force. He was a great
chef and musician with many
musical instruments.
Alec graduated from Niceville
High School in 1980. He was
retired from the USAF and was
employed as a Test Engineer at
General Dynamics in
Tallahassee, Fla., at the time of
his death. His military career
included participation in the
Bosnian War and Desert Storm.
He served numerous overseas
tours.
A memorial will be
announced at a later date.

"We do everything ourselves so
we are completely responsible for
our work," Hamilton said. "Since
we've all worked together for so
long, everyone knows what each
other's job is and we can work bet-
ter together collaboratively. It
makes for a smoother-run compa-
ny."
Cooling Services, LLC, also
provides load calculations to
decide what size equipment is
proper for the size of the house or
building. They also can provide
ultra-violet lights as well as ultra-
static air cleaners, which is proven
to kill 100 percent of all air born liv-
ing organisms including mold,
mildew, odors and viruses.
"We use a biocide for our duct
fogging that has been approved by
the EPA," Hamilton said. "All
chemicals we use are green and
approved by the Environmental


Protection Agency."
With the grueling summer
months looming ahead, Cooling
Services recommends regular
maintenance of air systems to
keep all a/c equipment running
smoothly and at its peak perform-
ance.
According to Cooling Services,
LLC, preventative maintenance is
always key. The salt atmosphere
causes corrosion on the condens-
ing coils. They recommend doing
maintenance once every 45 days
to keep all equipment running
smoothly. Cooling Services, LLC,
provides Calshield-a liquid Teflon
to help cut down on corrosion.
According to Hamilton, preven-
tative maintenance saves on aver-
age 25 percent on monthly effi-
ciency ratings on electric bills. For
$69.90 a customer can have a
technician come out in the spring
or fall to check the unit out. For
$99 a customer becomes part of
their maintenance repair plan,
which covers a spring and fall visit
as well as 25 percent discount on
parts.

ed in Destin. To contact, call (850)
