As of Tuesday morning, there was little sign of oil pollution on the coast of Okaloosa County, despite
spotty reports that tiny, harmless tar balls had washed up on some beaches. Norriego Point at Destin's
East Pass (above) was the scene of preliminary deployment of protective booms Friday to prevent any oil
slick, should one materialize from the Deepwater Horizon disaster, from fouling Choctawhatchee Bay and
its environmentally sensitive bayous. Below, left, a Florida Department of Environmental Protection com-
mand post at Henderson Beach State Park on Sunday. Below right, a Coast Guard plane patrols the
coast. BP said it had made progress in stemming the oil gushing from its mile-deep well off Louisiana,
but a Coast Guard admiral said the vast slick will plague the Gulf of Mexico for months to come.

Coastal Bank shifts charter to Georgia


By Del Lessard
Beacon Staff Writer
After having been based in Valparaiso
for 86 years and in Pensacola for the past
two, the government charter of Niceville's
biggest bank, Coastal Bank and Trust, has
been moved to Georgia.
On June 1, Synovus Financial Corp.,
the Columbus, Ga.-based banking compa-
ny that owns Coastal, announced the com-
pletion of the consolidation of 28 of its 30
bank charters operating in five states.
They now operate under a single Georgia
state charter issued to Synovus Bank.
Consolidation of two Tennessee banks is
expected by June 30.


Coastal and the other


Synovus Financial-owned banks
will continue to do business
under their current local names, CC|
but will no longer publicly
report separate financial results,
according to the company.
Synovus Financial, one of a -O
number of banking companies that has
relied heavily on federal bailout money
obtained in the wake of the U.S. financial
crisis of 2008, announced the planned
consolidation in February as part of its
strategy to cut costs and return to prof-
itability.
"Relationship banking is the heart of


aIl0oBan k
IrU5Lj


our approach to doing business,
and our bankers are empowered
to make local decisions that are
best for our customers,"
Richard Anthony, Synovus
Bank's chief executive, said last
week. "Our divisions will con-
tinue to operate under their own


local brands. The consolidation of our
charters only impacts our legal operating
structure, allowing us to better manage
capital and cash flow, simplify regulatory
complexity, and minimize risk around
banking practices."
Coastal, the biggest bank in Niceville
by deposits and branches, last year posted


a $65 million net loss for 2009. Its loss
for the first quarter of 2010 was $13.1
million, compared with a $2.3 million
profit for the year-earlier quarter.
The red ink reflects the tough econom-
ic environment faced by the banking sec-
tor and the poor economy in general,
Coastal officials said earlier this year.
Synovus Financial, suffering from
soured real estate loans, especially in
Georgia and Florida, posted a net loss of
$1.4 billion for 2009. It reported a $215
million loss in the first quarter of this year,
versus a $136.7 million loss for the year-
earlier quarter.

10% economic boost seen in BRAC


County population may rise

10,000 due to Eglin growth


By Del Lessard
Beacon Staff Writer
The influx of new Air Force and
Army missions at Eglin Air Force Base
is expected to boost the local economy
by about 10 percent, and the Okaloosa
County population by about 10,000,
according to a university economist.
About 220 business, development,
political and military officials attended a
roundtable symposium June 2 on the
economic growth expected from the
2005 Base Realignment and Closure
decision.
The military remains the No. 1 driv-
er in the economy of Northwest Florida,
the audience was told by Rick Harper,


director of the University of West
Florida's Haas Business Center.
The symposium, held on Okaloosa
Island, came as military officials at
Eglin Air Force Base approach the
September 2011 deadline to be up and
running with an international joint train-
ing center for the F-35 Joint Strike
Fighter and completion of the beddown
of 2,200 soldiers from the 7th Special
Forces Group, now stationed at Ft.
Bragg, N.C.
"The economic impact will be big,"
said Harper. BRAC will add about
10,000 people to the population of
Okaloosa County, he said, offsetting
Please see BRAC, page A-2


Some 2,200 soldiers
and 4,300 family
members of the Army
7th Special Forces
Group will move from
Fort Bragg, N.C., to
communities sur-
rounding Eglin Air
Force Base by the
end of 2011.

North Bay


forecasts


10 years of


tax hikes

By Megan Barys and Del Lessard
Beacon Staff
The North Bay Fire Control District may consid-
er a tax-rate increase this year-and possibly every
year for the next decade.
The fire district's board of commissioners
received an updated 10-year master plan last month
that forecasts a need for steady, annual increases in
the millage rate through 2019.
Millage rates are set yearly by the elected fire
commission, and no rate has yet been formally pro-
posed for the fiscal year that will begin Oct. 1.
The millage rate is the tax rate charged to prop-
erty owners and the primary method for funding the
fire department, a self-governing tax district that
covers Bluewater Bay, Seminole, and nearby neigh-
borhoods.
According to the latest update to North Bay's
master plan provided to the elected fire

Eglin growth

plan endorsed;

Valp. objects

By Del Lessard
Beacon Staff Writer
During a final public hearing in Niceville
Monday, officials acting for communities surround-
ing Eglin Air Force base unanimously "accepted" a
$1.2 million Pentagon-funded plan to manage
growth expected from an expected influx of airmen
and soldiers as a result of the 2005 Base
Realignment and Closure decision.
The Tri-County Growth Management Plan
(GMP) attempts to address growth issues caused by
the BRAC-directed transfer of the Army 7th Special
Forces Group from North Carolina to Eglin and a
new training center for pilots and maintainers of the
F-35 fighter jet.
Detractors called the nonbinding growth plan
flawed because it's based on outdated and unrealis-
tic data.
Valparaiso Mayor Bruce Arnold said the study's
recommendations repeat the mistakes of an earlier
study, the Joint Land Use Study (JLUS), and is based
on "worst case" F-35 noise scenarios that have

an aging population in the form of
a wave of retiring baby boomers in
coming years.
BRAC will add about 10 per-
cent to the gross regional product,
6 to 7 percent to the population
and about 9 percent to the number
of jobs in Northwest Florida, he
said. BRAC personnel numbers
will also "prop up" the real estate
market, Harper said, which is
beginning to recover but is still
well below peaks of a few years
ago.
33rd Fighter Wing Vice
Commander Col. Arthur
Tomassetti reminded the audience
that there is a $400 million mili-
tary construction project associat-
ed with BRAC and that so far


$191 million has been expended
on F-35 facilities at Eglin.
Tomassetti said nothing in the
highly publicized delays and cost
overruns associated with the F-35
development program will affect
planned activities of the 33rd
Fighter Wing over the next two
years. Pilot training is still set to
begin next month while training
for F-35 aircraft maintainers
begins in March 2011.
Tomassetti said the full-capaci-
ty manning figures at the 33rd will
be an up and down number as cer-
tain phases of pilot and mainte-
nance training classes ramp up for
each of the three services, and for
at least eight foreign countries that
will send their maintenance troops
to Eglin. Training courses will
vary from three to 11 months, he
said. Junior enlisted students may
stay on base in dormitories, while

The BRAC-directed Army

In December 2008, Valparaiso-
based Vanguard Bank and Trust
merged with Pensacola Bank to
form Coastal Bank and Trust of
Florida. Both banks were owned
by Synovus Financial, which also
owned the combined institution.
Coastal's headquarters were estab-
lished in Pensacola, with officials
of the former Pensacola Bank tak-
ing charge. Vanguard, whose own
state charter was surrendered in
the merger, had been headquar-
tered in Valparaiso since being
chartered as Valparaiso State Bank
in 1922. Synovus Financial pur-
chased Vanguard from local own-
ers in 1989.

ated by the June 1 charter consoli-

Rep. Gaetz


visits Niceville


schools

By Sarah Clauson
Beacon Correspondent
Florida State Rep. Matt Gaetz addressed elemen-
tary-school students at Rocky Bayou Christian
School, Niceville, Monday, helping them with their
government studies by describing how a bill gets
passed.
Gaetz, the youngest elected member of the
Florida House, assumed that seat in March after
winning a special election.
Gaetz, a Fort Walton Beach Republican who rep-
resents District 4, said a trip to Tallahassee sparked
his interest in government.
He said one key to his potential success is work-
ing with older people, which requires respect, lis-
tening and calmly sharing ideas and points of view.
He said part of his job is to serve as an advocate to
ensure sufficient money comes into the area to pro-
tect it.
Calling the students the leaders of the future,
Gaetz said, "I hope I can count on your guys to run
this country."
Later in the day, Gaetz visited Edge Elementary
School in Niceville.


Storm causes damage, blackouts


By Del Lessard
Beacon Staff Writer
A fierce thunderstorm
Saturday in the Twin Cities, hit
three homes with lightning,
blacked out over 1,500 power
customers, and interrupted
stoplights.
The storm cut electric power
to Twin Cities Hospital and
sunk a boat moored at a Boggy
Bayou marina.
No one was injured, and
damages were relatively minor,
according to Niceville Fire
Chief Tommy Mayville.
Firefighters responded to 11
calls at the height of the storm,
he said, starting about 4:10
p.m. with a report of electrical
power being lost.
None of the three homes
struck by lightning caught fire,
Mayville said. Lightning blew
the power panel off a house on
Finck Road, knocked down a
large oak tree close to a home

The Gulf oil spill is a tragedy that never should have happened.

And while we were deeply disappointed that the recent "top kill"
operation was unsuccessful, we were also prepared. The best engineers
in the world are now working around the clock to contain and collect most
of the leak.

As they do that, BP will continue to take full responsibility for cleaning
up the spill.

We have organized the largest environmental response in this country's
history. More than three million feet of boom, 30 planes and over 1,300
boats are working to protect the shoreline. When oil reaches the shore,
thousands of people are ready to clean it up.

Thirty teams of specialists are combing the shore along with US Fish and
Wildlife, NOAA and Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries. If wildlife is affected,
rescue stations have been set up to take care of them. Experts have been
flown in from around the country. And BP has dedicated $500 million to
watch over the long-term impact on marine life and shoreline.

We will honor all legitimate claims. We will continue working for as long
as it takes. And our efforts will not come at any cost to taxpayers.

We understand that it is our responsibility to keep you informed. And to
do everything we can so this never happens again.

We will get this done. We will make this right.

Coastal Cooling and Heating


Are you completely comfortable?


Advertising Feature
As spring gives way to
another long, hot Florida sum-
mer, now is the time to make
sure your air conditioning sys-
tem will reliably cool your
home. It may also be a good
time to upgrade an older sys-
tem, especially in light of new
technology that can not only
cool or heat a home, but can
also improve indoor air quality
in ways not previously possi-
ble.
"Preventive maintenance is
the key to a long life for your
cooling and heating system,"
said Bob Biel, owner of Coastal
Cooling and Heating. "Have
your coils cleaned and refriger-
ant levels checked too much
or too little can affect efficiency
and raise your power bill. Also
check the electrical connec-
tions, to make sure they
haven't been corroded by
Florida's salt air, especially if
you live near the water."
It is also important to have
such work done by a reliable,
professional service such as
Coastal Cooling. "What makes
my business successful," said
Biel, "is that I'm very customer-
oriented. "I make sure my
clients get the best value pos-
sible for their money. We have


three awesome technicians
who provide excellent installa-
tions and service in your home.
They also address refrigeration
issues at our local restaurants
such as repairing walk-in-cool-
ers and freezers.
"We give free estimates, and
we are going to make your
buying decision comfortable by
explaining the reasons behind
our recommendations."
"When serving a customer, I
make sure the job is done right
the first time, meeting all EPA
standards and manufacturer's
specifications."
Biel started his business
about two years ago, after
working in the air conditioning
business since 1995, earning
his state contractor's license
and becoming an expert in
cooling and heating. Today, he
serves both residential and
commercial customers, includ-
ing Po' Folks in Niceville, and
Harbor Docks and Tropical
Smoothie in Destin.
"I especially enjoy working
with military families. I often
use e-mail to communicate
directly with a customer over-
seas, as I install or maintain
the family's home heating and
cooling system."
Today, Biel said, indoor air

TAX
From page A-1
commissioners, Fire Chief Joseph
Miller estimated millage rates ris-
ing 14.6 percent in the fiscal year
that begins Oct. 1, 2010, to 2.35
mills, from the current 2.05 mills.
For every 1 mill of the mill-
age rate, property owners pay $1
for every $1,000 of taxable
value, after exemptions.
For fiscal years 2010-2019,
the capital expenses of the fire
station for personnel, operations,
equipment, a building fund, and
other purchases average out to
approximately $2.5 million per
year.
Miller's 10-year plan calls for
steady annual increases in mill-
age rate every year through
2019, when he estimated the
property tax rate at 2.87 mills, a
40 percent increase from the cur-
rent millage rate of 2.05
Miller said that he under-
stands taxpayers' reluctance to
pay more taxes, but public serv-
ices such as the fire department
with paramedics and adequate
building operations are paid for
by the taxpayer. With increased
traffic flow through the district
and increased growth potential
in the area, it is important to
keep the North Bay Fire District
in prime operating capability, he
said.
Between June 1983 and
2004, the North Bay Board of
Fire Commissioners never
exceeded 1.875 mills, and was
legally capped at a maximum of
2.0 mills. However, in 2004 an

A 70-year-old Niceville

for $3,950 that she had received
in a letter from an .Iil-', com-

"tax agent" in London, England.
She did not send any money.

A public education program
was implemented to gain sup-
port for a voter referendum to
approve increasing the millage
cap from 2.0 mills to 3.75 mills.
Voters approved increasing the
legal cap on millage rates in
November 2004 by better than
2-1.
In 2005 and 2006 the millage
rate was set at 2.07 mills. Then,
in 2007 Gov. Charlie Crist and
the Florida Legislature initiated
a property tax overhaul that had
the effect of reducing North
Bay's millage to 1.6819. As a

the fire district to use reserve
funds to pay for operations. In
2008 the passage of a state con-
stitutional amendment allowing
a second $25,000 homestead

The reduction in tax revenue,
accompanied by a decline in tax-
able property values-some due
to the past two years' economic
downturn, has placed a strain on
the budget of the fire depart-

percent a year, through 2019.
Nonetheless, Miller estimated
that the taxable property values
over the next 10 years won't
equal taxable values last year,
when they topped $1.08 billion.
According to Miller, in 2004,
prior to the decision to construct
the new Mid-Bay Bridge
approach road that is currently
under way, widening White
Point Road to accommodate the
increased traffic flow to the
bridge was discussed. To widen
the road, the fire station would
have had to be relocated because
there would not have been suffi-
cient area for a safe parking
ramp for the fire engines. In light
of the need to relocate, no main-
tenance on the station had been
undertaken for a few years.
Now that White Point Road
won't be widened after all, the
firehouse won't have to be
moved. However, years of
deferred maintenance have
begun to tell.
Now the firehouse bay floor
needs to be replaced and drains
with a lift station to compensate
for water collection on the floor
need to be installed if the exist-
ing fire house is to be kept.
These expenses add up to about
$180,000 and are in addition to
another $96,000 needed for roof
replacement, vehicle exhaust
system, kitchen, bathroom, bay
door operating systems, bay
lighting, and outside lighting.
Alternatively, a new station
could be constructed at a differ-
ent location, but that would also
cost a lot of money.

GROWTH
From page A-1

been rejected by the Air Force
itself.
"Your recommendations, along
with JLUS, will destroy the city of
Valparaiso," Arnold told members
of the committee that approved
the plan.
The GMP recommends ban-
ning new-home construction in
Valparaiso and over half of
Niceville because of expected F-
35 engine noise.
Niceville resident Henry
Caldwell said the study's recom-
mendations are premature. Eglin,
he said, won't complete a noise
study on the F-35 until later this
summer. The Air Force also has
not yet decided whether Eglin will
get more than the 59 F-35s it has
already decided to send to Eglin,
he said.
A Niceville property owner
who did not give her name was
worried that the report calls for
higher taxes to provide additional
infrastructure at a time when tax-
able property values have declined
for three straight years and the
number of incoming military has
shrunk by half from earlier esti-
mates.
One of the study's authors,
economist, Rod Lewis, of the
University of West Florida Haas
Business Center, said that in 2006
the local community anticipated
that BRAC would bring 16,000 to
22,000 people to the Eglin area at
a time when the real estate was
booming. A major concern then
was a lack of affordable housing, a
worry that has since diminished
with the crash of the housing mar-
ket and a reduction in the number
of incoming military personnel.
The original numbers did not
anticipate the loss of about 5,000
personnel when the 33rd Fighter
Wing deactivated its F-15 mission,
he said. Even now the estimate of
11,000 new military personnel
and family members is based on
the Air Force basing 107 F-35s at
Eglin, not just the 59 aircraft so far
committed. A decision is expected
later this year on the remaining 48.
Tom Atkins, a project manager
from HDR, one of the contractors
hired to conduct the study, out-
lined three main recommenda-
tions in the GMP:
-Diversify the local economy
beyond its two mainstays, the mil-
itary and tourism. The Deepwater
Horizon oil spill and its potential
impact on tourism reaffirms the
need to diversify, Atkins said.
-Improve transportation cor-
ridors, especially Highway 85
between Crestview and Eglin Air
Force Base, but also a bypass for
Crestview.
-Continue region-wide coop-
eration between Eglin and the
communities that surround it con-
cerning how the base's changing
missions may affect on civilian
growth.
The GMP and JLUS will both
be updated after the Air Force
releases its Supplemental
Environmental Impact Study on
F-35 jet noise later this summer,
said Jeff Fanto, Okaloosa
County's Growth Project
Coordinator. The plans will also
be updated once the Air Force
decides whether to station more F-
35s here.
In any case, the current GMP
may be useful to local planners
now because the Army's 2,200
soldiers and their 4,300 family
members will arrive within 18
months.
"This is a living, breathing doc-
ument that will change daily,"
Okaloosa County Commission
Chairman Wayne Harris, of
Crestview, told the audience of
about three dozen citizens.
Recommendations of the 300-
page study are just that, Fanto
said, recommendations. City and
county officials, Fanto said, are
free to ignore, change or adopt any
of the study's recommendations.
However, Valparaiso Mayor
Arnold said he feared that the state
may ultimately enforce the study's
recommendation that no new resi-
dential construction be allowed in
Valparaiso-a recommendation
that city officials oppose.
Harris chairs the 14-member
executive committee, representing
communities in Okaloosa, Santa
Rosa and Walton counties, that
oversaw the study. All five mem-


bers of the executive committee,
and one substitute, who were pres-
ent Monday night-including the
two Eglin members-voted to
accept the GMP Officials could-
n't immediately be reached for
comment on whether the number

present constituted a quorum.
"We all love this area and want
to preserve the quality of life in
Northwest Florida," said Bob


Arnold, technical adviser to
Eglin's 46th Test Wing and a
member of executive committee.

Emergency Medical Services of FL, PL


Southland Emergency Medical Services was developed to bring high quality medical
services back to hospitals and communities. In a medical climate where physicians
are "providers" and no longer healers and patient advocates, where medical services
are run by large, distant staffing companies and in which there is no consistency in
physician quality, a change was needed.

Parachute Infantry Regiment,
Lance M. Murray joined the
elite organization of Army para-

school. He is a 2009 graduate of

The Beacon Salutes Class of 2010


Commencement for 650 graduates


3 schools salute

Class of 2010

By Del Lessard
Beacon Staff Writer
Approximately 650 high school seniors
from the Class of 2010 are moving on to
the next step in their life's journey with
June graduation ceremonies set for
Niceville's three high schools, Niceville
Senior High, Collegiate High and Rocky
Bayou Christian School.
Most of the grads will attend college in
the fall, while some plan to begin work and
a few will join the military services.

Tomorrow at 7 p.m., family and friends
will proudly watch commencement cere-
monies in Eagle Stadium for 515 Niceville
High School graduates. This year's brood
of Eagles received approximately $7 mil-

lion in scholarship offers for outstanding
academics and athletics, including four
National Merit Scholarship Finalists, six
Commended Scholars and a National
Achievement Finalist.
Four seniors from the Niceville High
School graduating class talked about their
experience at the largest high school in
Okaloosa County.
Will Davis, 18, of Niceville, is an Eagle
baseball player and the class president.
He's headed to Huntingdon College in
Montgomery, Ala., where he plans to major
in biochemistry and will try out for the
baseball team.
"AJ" Gomez, 18, of Bluewater Bay,
also a baseball player, will study biomed-
ical engineering at Birmingham (Ala.)
Southern University.
Jenna Hassell, 18, of Niceville, a vol-
leyball player, is vice president of the NHS
student government association. She'll go
to the University of South Alabama,
Mobile, on a volleyball scholarship and
plans to study nursing.
Rachael Klinger, 17, of Niceville, a

ship and plans a major in athletic training.
She was president of the school Spirit
Club.
"I'll be sad," all four seniors said nearly
in unison about leaving Niceville High and
their friends. "It's bittersweet," said Will.
Rachael added, "Most people are staying in
Florida where most plan to pursue college
degrees."
"Sports brought us together" said
Rachael about the 2010 graduating class.
"It's been a fun year," she said. "Every
sport has been successful in what they did."
The NHS Class of 2010 counts three
individual state champions among its
members. This year the school fielded
teams that were state runners up in football
and softball.

Ninety-six seniors at Collegiate High
School received their high school diplomas
June 3 on the Niceville campus of
Northwest Florida State College. Three
weeks earlier, 92 of those same high school
seniors received two-year college
Associate of Arts degrees in Northwest

2010 Collegiate High School graduates Zack Bodie and Samantha Sementill
received their high school diplomas June 3. Last month, they and most class-
mates were awarded two-year college degrees earned at the same they worked

nice, and, you get your AA," said Samantha.


monies May. The Collegiate High class
included three National Merit Finalists,
two commended scholars and two National
Achievement Finalists.
Samantha Sementilli, 18, of Bluewater
Bay, and Zack Bodie, 17, of Niceville,
were among the members of the 10th grad-
uating class of Collegiate High School who
also received their AA degree from the col-
lege.
"It's funny and cool to have 17- and 18-
year-olds with an AA degree but no high
school diploma," said Samantha. She and
most classmates received associate's
degrees May 6 but had to wait another
month for their high school sheepskins.
Samantha will attend New College of
Florida, in Sarasota, where she plans to
major in international relations. Zack is
headed to the University of Central Florida
to major in psychology.
"It was a great opportunity to get a head
start, and my parents like that too," Zack
said about completing two years of college
already. Although he was a little nervous
about graduating and moving away from
home, he said, "I'm just ready to get out on
my own."

The Beacon Salutes Class of 2010


Rocky Bayou Christian to graduate 42


From page 3
"Everyone here is so friendly and wel-
coming," said Samantha of her experience
at Collegiate High. "We get together quite
well."
"I know the first and last name of
everyone in our class, and many in the
class below," she said.
Zack agreed that his graduating class
is "pretty close knit, being a smaller
school-you pretty much have to stick
together in the college classes," he said.
The sophomore year at Collegiate
helped prepare the class for attending
regular college classes at the Niceville
campus as juniors and seniors, he said.

On Friday at 7 p.m., Rocky Bayou
Christian School will graduate 42 sen-
iors. The Rocky Class of 2010 has
earned in excess of $2.1 million in
scholarship offers.
"We all hang out together," said
Aaron Cain, 17, of Niceville.
"There's a strong sense of unity,"
agreed Natalie Masone, 17, of Miramar
Beach. "Our senior class is probably the
strongest in a while as far as friendship


Beacon photo by Del Lessard
As are most of their classmates at Rocky Bayou Christian School, seniors Aaron
Cain and Natalie Masone are headed to college. "Our senior class is probably
the strongest in a while as far as friendship and accomplishments," said Natalie.
"We're setting the example for the classes to follow."


and accomplishments. We're setting the
example for the classes to follow."
Now, Natalie says she's looking for-
ward to graduation because, "I've done
everything I wanted to do in high
school and am ready to move on in
life."
Natalie will attend Loyola
University, New Orleans, where she
hopes to major in pre-med biology. She
won a four-year Cardones Scholarship
with which she'll be among 20 students
who will live and work together while
doing work for Habitat for Humanity in
tKatrina-devastated New Orleans. "It's
an incredible opportunity," she said.
Aaron is headed to Clearwater
Christian College, where he hopes to
major in sports training, with a minor in
sports ministry. A four-sport athlete at
Rocky-football, basketball, baseball,
and track-he plans to try out for the
college basketball team.
"I'm excited to start my new life, on
my own, but I'm sad to leave my
friends," said Aaron, who has attended
RBCS since the seventh grade. "We're a
close-knit group. We argue like a fami-
ly but we have each other's back."
