BP for fall



in revenue


By Mike Griffith
Beacon Correspondent
The Mid-Bay Bridge
Authority may become the latest
in a long line of governmental
bodies seeking compensation
from British Petroleum for the
company's disastrous Gulf oil
spill.


Traffic over the Mid-Bay
Bridge has declined from the
same time last year, and so has
toll revenue, despite a toll
increase. The Mid-Bay Bridge
Authority raised tolls by 50 cents
for most vehicles June 1.

Candidates scarce for local offices


By Del Lessard
Beacon Staff Writer
Voters will have a say in fill-
ing only one of seven open posi-
tions on three local-government
elective boards in November.
Candidate qualifying ended
Friday.
On Nov. 2 voters in the North
Bay Fire District will choose
between Steven Strait and
incumbent Karen Benegas to fill
one of two seats up for election
in 2010. The incumbent for the
other seat, Janet B. Santner, was


unopposed
for reelec-
tion.
There
was no
competition
for three
seats on the
East
Niceville
Fire Karen Benegas
Commission, with all three
incumbents unchallenged for
election.
No one qualified to run for


the two
open seats
on the
Bluewater
Bay
Municipal
Services
Benefit
Unit
(MSBU).
The seats Steven Strait
will be
filled by appointment.
All three nonpartisan bodies,
each with taxing power, are com-


posed of five unpaid directors
serving staggered four-year
terms.
On the county level, two
Okaloosa County judges and one
school board members won
reelection without opposition.
Both state legislators repre-
senting the Twin Cities area were
unopposed for reelection.
North Bay Fire District
Banegas and Strait both
qualified for the Group 4 seat
and will thus be on the Nov. 2


general election ballot.
Benegas was appointed to her
current seat earlier this year to
fill a vacancy created when a
director stepped down in
midterm.
For the other North Bay
Fire Commission seat, Group
2, incumbent Janet B. Santner
was the only candidate to qual-
ify and thus won reelection
without opposition.

Okaloosa hires


oil-boom firm


By Mike Griffith
Beacon Correspondent
Okaloosa County has hired a
company to help officials figure
out where to put floating booms to
protect inland waters from oil
gushing from the British
Petroleum well. The consulting
job may cost as much $500,000,
which the county says it will try to
recoup from BR
Okaloosa County Public Safety
Director Dino Villani and
Emergency Medical Services chief
Ken Wolfe briefed emergency-
management officials Thursday in
Niceville on efforts to protect the
East Pass near Destin from the
intrusion of oil. First attempts to
string booms across the pass
ended in failure, they said.
Their briefing was followed by
another from U.S. Coast Guard


Commander Martha LaGuardia, a
liaison officer working with coun-
ty officials.
Although some oil had already
appeared on Okaloosa Island
beaches by Thursday morning,
none had made it as far east as
Destin, said Wolfe and Villani.
Placement of oil booms was still
underway at the East Pass, Wolfe
said, and the county has contract-
ed with James Lee Witt
Associates, a coastal engineering
firm, to determine the optimum
placement of booms and other
equipment to try and prevent oil
from entering Choctawhatchee
Bay and other inland waters.
The contract with Witt may
cost the county up to a half mil-
lion dollars or more, Villani said,

Hughes explains budget as few watch


By Mike Griffith
Beacon Corresoondent
During a public briefing June
15 at Niceville City Hall attend-
ed by fewer than a half-dozen
people, Okaloosa County Tax
Collector Chris Hughes talked
about his budget for the coming
fiscal year, how it compares with
the current budget, and new
services being offered by the Tax
Collector's Office. The briefing
was one of several such meet-
ings Hughes held at various
places throughout the county last
week.
The Tax Collector's Office,
said Hughes, is different from
most other county government
agencies. It is a "constitutional"
office, he said, meaning that the
Tax Collector is elected by coun-
ty voters and not accountable to
the Board of County


Commissioners (BCC).
In addition, he said, the Tax
Collector's revenue is not
derived from taxes set by the Tax
Collector, but is based on a com-
indine 5 igoen
earned from
the taxes
collected on
behalf of all
the other
taxing
authorities
in the coun-
ty, such as
the BCC,
independent Chris Hughes
fire districts, and Municipal
Services Benefit Units
(MSBUs).
Any commission money not
actually spent by the Tax
Collector in any given year is
returned to the county commis-


sion. This arrangement, Hughes
said, gives the Tax Collector
considerable independence from
influence by other government
agencies, although the Tax
Collector's budget is subject to
review and approval by the
Florida Department of Revenue.
The Tax Collector's Office
employs about 68 people, locat-
ed at offices in Niceville, Fort
Walton Beach, Destin,
Crestview, and on Eglin Air
Force Base. Some of the Tax
Collector's services are also
available by phone at 651-7300
or 689-5700, or online at
www.okaloosatax.com.
Hughes said none of his
employees is being given salary
increases or performance bonus-
es in FY 2011, although some
may receive "certification
bonuses" in accordance with

ted to his political cam-

ses to the county commis-


sion, nor to his overseers at the
Florida Department of Revenue.
Of the tax money collected by
his office, Hughes said, about 58
percent is disbursed to the
Okaloosa School District. The
Board of County Commissioners
receives about 24 percent, while
municipalities get 10 percent,
fire districts get 7 percent, and

increase is due to several causes,
he said. One of these is the
requirement to hire extra people

Airport USO lounge


to open Tuesday


By Kenneth Books
Beacon Staff Writer
Starting next week, traveling
service members and their fami-
lies will have a comfortable place
to relax while waiting at
Northwest Florida Regional
Airport.
The new USO Freedom
Lounge, near the ticket counters,
will offer munchies, coffee and
soda, reading material, video
games, TV, Internet and other
diversions designed to make an
otherwise stressful time pass a lit-
tle more easily. It will celebrate its
grand opening Tuesday at 10 a.m.
The lounge is scheduled to be
open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., seven
days a week. "If we find we need
different hours, we'll adjust it,"
said Heidi Blair, director, USO
Northwest Florida, which also
operates lounges at the Pensacola
and Panama City airports.
The lounge was constructed
under USO (United Service
Organizations) auspices, but much
of the legwork was performed by
Leadership Okaloosa, a 10-month
executive course at Northwest
Florida State College. Each
Leadership Okaloosa class choos-
es a project; the 2009-2010 class
put together a lounge similar to
those found at many other air-
ports.
"They had an architect in the
class," said Blair. "They raised the
money and gathered the items and
the county built the lounge." USO
said contributions of cash, goods
and services totaled about
$90,000, mainly from companies.
Construction took about six
months, Blair said. Some con-
struction costs were paid by the
county-owned airport.
When county offices that were
housed in the area moved out, air-


Diane Freeman of Bluewater Bay, manager of the new USO
Freedom Lounge at Northwest Florida Regional Airport, brews
a pot of coffee in the facility, which will be open to service mem-
bers and families seven days a week.


port director Greg Donovan
grabbed the ball and ran with it.
"When I was over in
Pensacola, I served on the USO
board," Donovan said. "When I
came on here, it was a service that
was absent. It seems fitting that
the world's largest base has a USO
presence."
"I'd been dreaming about it for
three years," Blair said. She said
she and
Donovan had
discussed the
possibility for
about two of
those years.
Donovan
said the lounge
will serve not
only service members and their
families, but retired military will
also have full access.
The space will benefit the air-
port and its non-military cus-
tomers as well. The main desk at
the lounge extends into the airport.
The volunteer manning the desk
will serve a dual purpose, helping
service members in the lounge
and functioning as a de facto
concierge, directing travelers to
lodging, restaurants and other des-

Still, there were hurdles to

My name is Darryl Willis and I'm responsible for overseeing BP's
claims process in the Gulf coast. I was born and raised in Louisiana.
At age 70, my mother lost her home to Hurricane Katrina. Afterwards,
she experienced enormous frustration. So I know first hand that
when tragedy strikes on a scale like this, people need help without
a lot of hassles.

Independent Claims Compensation Fund
Working with the President, we've created a $20 billion fund to satisfy
all legitimate claims. This fund will be administered by a highly respected
independent overseer and will not come at any cost to taxpayers.

How To File A Claim
To speed help, BP's Claims Center is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a
week. The number is 1-800-440-0858. When someone calls, they'll
find out how to submit their claim and can schedule a face-to-face
meeting with one of our claims specialists. After meeting, we will
be in touch in four days or less and can issue them a check right on
the spot. They can also file online at bp.com/claims.

Replacing Lost Monthly Income
Our focus has been on helping the fishermen, small businesses and
others who aren't able to work until the spill is cleaned up, by making
payments to replace their lost monthly income. These payments will
continue for as long as needed.

We have already paid tens of thousands of claims amounting to
more than $100 million. We have recently simplified and accelerated
the payment of commercial large loss claims. Over one thousand
people are here to help in 33 walk-in claims offices in the Gulf. We
have promised to honor all legitimate claims and we will.

Our Responsibility
The Gulf is my home. Doing this right is important to me. My
commitment is that we will keep you informed, and we'll be here
as long as it takes. We may not always be perfect, but we will
make this right.

10,000 view Vietnam wall


By Thomas Monigan
Beacon Staff Writer
Even in the swelter of an early
afternoon in mid-June, visitors
kept coming to see what the Wall
That Heals was all about.
An estimated 10,000 people
visted the traveling replica of the
Vietnam Veterans Memorial dur-
ing its four-day visit to Okaloosa
County. The visit ended Sunday.
Men and women, old and
young, seniors and youngsters
separated by as many as three or
four generations. Retired military
living here. Visitors from as far
away as Ohio.
And for many, it didn't take
long before the tears just showed
up all on their own as they exam-
ined the half-size replica of the
Vietnam Veterans Memorial set up
at the Northwest Florida
Fairgrounds.
"I haven't been to the one in
Washington, but I'm emotional
anyhow," said Richard Smith of
Shalimar during his visit
Thursday.
Measuring about 250 feet long,
the chevron-shaped display
memorializes 58,249 either killed
or missing in action. Its visit here
was part of a series of exhibits,
educational programs and events
being presented by the Heritage
Museum of Northwest Florida to
commemorate the 75th anniver-
sary of Eglin Air Force Base.
Even at age 80, Smith didn't
hesitate when asked about his year
of flying helicopter gunships in
Vietnam.
"No one gets lower, slower or
closer than we do," Smith said.
His forefinger found the comer of
his right eye, which had become
misty.
"I know at least 10 people on
this wall," he said quietly.
Nearby, Paula Eddington and
her infant son, Will, from Fort
Walton Beach were checking out
the wall.
"I just wanted to come and pay
my respects," Eddington said.

From page A-2

ices within Okaloosa County
after state driver's license offices
close later this year. Most of the
new hires, he said, will be the
people who would otherwise
lose their jobs when the state
offices close.
Without the Tax Collector
taking over such services,
Hughes said, Okaloosa residents
would have to drive to
Pensacola, the nearest state dri-
ver's license office after the
offices in Okaloosa County are
closed.
In addition, he said, new
office furniture and equipment is
being purchased as the Tax
Collector's Office must move
out of facilities at the Crestview
courthouse and find space else-
where to allow room for a new
judge and other activities at the
courthouse.
Hughes also said his office is
preparing to comply with federal
regulations that he expects to
take effect in 2015, requiring all
driver's licenses in all states to
meet federal standards for pro-
viding reliable identification of
individuals.
"By 2015," he said, "you will
have to get a new driver's
license or equivalent ID card
that meets the federal require-
ments. You won't be allowed to
board an airplane in the United
States, or enter most government

David and Christy Jahn of Westerville, Ohio, visited the Wall That Heals Vietnam memorial with sons
Luke, 7, and Zachary, 6. Christy Jahn's father, Dale Hansen, served with the Army's 101st Airborne in
Vietnam. "He's very private about it," she said. "He opens up only with those he was there with."


"I've been to the one in D.C., and
this has the same effect." Her tears
said the rest.
Michelle Severino, executive
director of the Heritage Museum,
which sponsored the wall's visit to
Okaloosa County, was there
Thursday, too. She was setting up
special wreaths with the help of
George Vasquez, a 15-year-old
member of the Junior ROTC at
Choctawhatchee High School.
"In my entire professional
experience, I have never been part
of a project that engaged the com-
munity in such a significant way,"
Severino said. "It's been a once-
in-a-lifetime experience for me."
About 1,100 visitors came on
the first full day, which was
Thursday, according to Severino.
It took about $8,000 in donations
from local businesses and civic
groups to secure the Wall's visit,
she said. And insurance for the

year, Hughes said, are improving
the speed and efficiency of issu-
ing driver's licenses and other
documents, and decreasing wait
times for customers. He said he
also looks forward to "working


motorcade that brought the trac-
tor-trailer carrying the unassem-
bled display cost several thousand
more, she added.
Indoor exhibits included a col-
lection of artifacts from Texas
Tech University, as well as some
local collections.
The visit, which ended
Sunday, marked the llth of 28
stops planned this year for the
Wall That Heals, which is operat-
ed by the Vietnam Veterans
Memorial Fund, the Washington,
D.C., organization that built the
original memorial in the nation's
capital in 1982.
So far it's been from
California to the Carolinas, and
even stood on the rise above the
site of the 1969 Woodstock
Festival in Bethel, N.Y
"It takes 10 to 15 people about
four hours to set up," said Site
Manager Bob Dobek. All the

names are computer etched onto
24 panels of powder-coated alu-
minum sheets. The sheets are
pop-riveted onto tubular alu-
minum frames. Names are listed
alphabetically by date of casualty.
Dobek served in the Army
from 1970 to 1995 and retired as
a sergeant first class. He and his
wife, Brenda, drive the 2007
Kenworth T-600 tractor trailer
that transports the memorial and
displays around the country.
"A lot of it's up to the individ-
ual how they react," Dobek said.
"But I want people to understand
soldiers do what they're told to
do. We've lost a million-and-a-
quarter people from the
Revolution through Vietnam in
defense of this country and free-
dom."
"If I was a little bit younger,
I'd do it all over again. I wouldn't
hesitate."

public briefing in a press release

Day care center


okayed in Valp.


By Del Lessard
Beacon Staff Writer
A 14,000-square-foot child
care facility should be open by
year's end in Valparaiso to
serve more than 250 children,
the owners say.
Monday, Valparaiso's
Planning Board granted a con-
ditional use permit that allows
business owners Wraith and
Lisa Drake to establish their
planned Kids Discovery day-
care and preschool facility on
commercially-zoned property
at 70 John Sims Parkway/243
Chicago Ave.
The property, the site of a
former, 9,000-square-foot
thrift store, has recently had
the interior gutted to make
room for the child care center.
The Drakes said they also plan
to build an addition of 5,000
square feet on the Chicago
Avenue side of the property.


Although child care centers
are allowed in commercially
zoned areas of Valparaiso, the
city requires a conditional use
permit. City Administrator
Carl Scott said the permit
means that businesses such as
restaurants which normally
may not serve alcohol within
1,000 feet of a child care facil-
ity may do so in this case.
For the same reason,
Valparaiso's planning board
also unanimously approved a
conditional use permit for a
new church, 40 John Sims
Parkway. That's where All
God's Children and Living
Word Church has moved into a
former Embarq switching
building.
A restaurant across John
Sims Parkway from both the
church and the proposed child

Vest said that trash pickups

He said there seems to be more

trash may be falling off trucks
carrying construction materials
across the bridge.

expects will eventually be reim-
bursed by BP, the firm considered
financially responsible for the
Deepwater Horizon oil spill off
Louisiana.
Villani said that despite recent
declarations by the Okaloosa
County Commission that the
county will act with or without
permission from state or federal
authorities if necessary to protect
the county from encroaching oil,
the county is, in fact, working well
with the federal Unified
Command headquartered in
Mobile, Ala. Since the county dec-
laration, he said, state and federal
agencies have become easier to
work with.
Booms are being placed near
the East Pass, Villani said, and
crews have practiced stretching
the booms across the pass itself,
although such attempts had result-
ed in failures so far. "That's a good
thing," Villani said, because the
experience has allowed crews to
learn how to get it right when oil
actually arrives at the pass. When
it does, he said, the booms will

say they dismissed, calls his pink
slip illegal.
Meantime, the new appointee,
Heyward Strong, says he'll rep-
resent Valparaiso at today's
board meeting.
The Valparaiso-based gas dis-
trict, a state agency that distrib-
utes and sells natural gas in
Okaloosa, Walton and Santa
Rosa counties, isn't normally a
scene of public contention. It is
quietly governed by a board of
five members-one each named
by Okaloosa County and the
cities of Crestview, Fort Walton
Beach, Niceville, and Valparaiso.
But the rhubarb over who rep-
resents Valparaiso has thrust the
agency into the spotlight.
Reid, a lawyer, was named to
the panel by the Valparaiso City
Commission in 2003 and again
in 2007.
Reid says he won't step aside


most likely be stretched across the
pass during incoming tides and at
night, and opened at other times to
allow vessels to get in and out of
Destin Harbor and
Choctawhatchee Bay. Other
booms are kept in place along
shorelines of the pass and in a
chevron pattern designed to col-
lect oil in areas where it can more
easily be skimmed off the surface.
In addition to booms, Villani
said, the county is obtaining
barges, skimming equipment, and
pipes to be laid underwater
beneath the pass to create a bubble
curtain designed to push underwa-
ter oil plumes to the surface to be
skimmed. Such equipment, he
said, was expected to be in place
within 10 days of the June 17
meeting.
Commander LaGuardia, who
said she is a former Destin resident
and a graduate of Fort Walton
Beach High School, said much of
the skimming and beach cleanup
activity will take place at night,
when temperatures are cooler.
This will be easier on cleanup
crews, she said, and will also
make it easier to collect tar balls
and other oil, as lower tempera-
tures make the oil thicker and eas-

paid $25 per monthly meeting,

charges and

according to
state law.
On May
14, the
Valparaiso
C i t y Heyward Strong
Commission passed an ordinance
requiring its representative to be
an elected official. On May 14
Mayor Bruce Arnold sent a letter
to Reid, thanking him for his
service and informing him the
city would replace him with
Strong, a city commissioner,
effective June 1.
Reid responded with his own
letter May 20, declaring, "I do

intend to complete the term I am
presently serving."
"I feel that I would be doing a
disservice to the members of the
District in general and the resi-
dents of the City of Valparaiso in
particular if I were to abandon
my duties and responsibilities
before the completion of my
term," Reid wrote. "I take my
responsibilities as an unpaid vol-
unteer very seriously and I sim-
ply do not think local politics
should keep me from fulfilling
my duties to the resident of the
City of Valparaiso."
Most Valparaiso city com-
missioners apparently did not
share Reid's view. On June 14
the commission voted 4-1, with
Tom Miller dissenting, to reject
Reid's bid to postpone a com-
mission hearing on his dismissal.
City officials contended that
Reid had made a presentation
about a proposed new franchise
agreement between the city and
Okaloosa Gas that was inaccu-


much oil as possible before it
reaches the beaches or pass.
Nevertheless, Villani and
LaGuardia said they were aware
of unconfirmed reports of oil
"sheen" in Rocky Bayou near the
Bluewater Bay Marina. They said
they do not know for certain

rate and unauthorized.
The proposal Reid presented
would have capped the franchise
fee the gas district pays to the
city and made the city responsi-
ble for any damages it might
cause the gas district. The agree-
ment was later finalized without
either change recommended by
Reid in December.
City Attorney Doug Wyckoff
wrote in a June 4 letter to Reid,
filed with the city, that "you are
to be removed for misfeasance,
negligence and 'other just
cause.'"
Reid did not appear before
the Valparaiso commission at the
June 14 hearing, but was repre-
sented by a lawyer.
Reid declined to comment for
this article, referring calls to his
lawyer, Mike Chesser, who did
not return them. In a June 8 let-
ter to the city, Chesser contended
that Reid "will not permit him-
self to be dismissed illegally and
without cause."


where such oil sheen may have
come from, but that it may not be
related to the Deepwater Horizon
spill, as no oil has been seen enter-
ing the pass from the Gulf of
Mexico. The sheen may instead
have come from boats in or near
the marina or elsewhere in Rocky

The city commission appoint-
ed Reid in 2003 by a 3-2 vote,
with Strong and Arnold opposed.
He succeeded Strong-who had
served 16 years as Valparaiso's
representative to the Okaloosa
Gas District.
According to the Okaloosa
Gas website as of Monday, the
five current members of the
Okaloosa Gas District's board of
directors are:
-Timothy "Tim"
Grandberry Sr., representing
Crestview.
-Dennis Reeves, represent-
ing Fort Walton Beach.
-Charles Reid, representing
Valparaiso.
-Randall Wise, representing
Niceville.
-C. H. Rigdon, Jr., repre-
senting the Okaloosa County

Commissioners.

Bayou. In any case, said
LaGuardia, "Sheen (a very light
coating of oil on the water's sur-
face) cannot be skimmed," and
must be allowed to degrade natu-
rally, and poses little threat to the
local environment in the amounts
reported.
Officials said anyone encoun-
tering oil on local shores or in the
water should avoid contact with
it. If you do get oil on your body,
they said, soap and water, dish-
washing detergent, or baby oil
are all effective for removing oil
from skin. Trained cleanup crews
are wearing protective clothing
when handling the oil. Casual
contact with oil is not likely to be
a health hazard to normally
healthy people.
Do not attempt to handle oil
or oiled wildlife, said officials,
but call the county's 311 infor-
mation line to report your obser-
vations. The local oil produces
little or no fumes, but people
with sensitive respiratory sys-
tems should avoid it as a precau-
tion, and report any health prob-
lems to your doctor. Health infor-
mation related to the oil spill is
available at

DMS Builders end year with barrels


The Builders Club of Destin
Middle School is a character
building club sponsored by the
Kiwanis Club of Destin. This
was a very busy and rewarding
year for the Builders Club as it
completed several service proj-
ects and three fundraising proj-
ects.
Service projects for this year
included: holiday cards for mili-
tary soldiers, cards for the resi-
dence at Destin
Healthcare/Rehab, sponsoring
for the second year of an Angel
Tree Child at Christmas, ringing
bells for the Salvation Army,
cleaning desk tops for teachers,
and collecting pop tabs for the
Ronald McDonald House and
box tops and Campbell's Soup
labels yearlong for the school.
The students bought six
incomplete rain barrels from the
Choctaw Alliance Basin. With

organizations were the lucky
recipients of the lovely painted
barrels: Destin Middle School,
Destin Elementary School,
Choctaw Alliance Basin,
Okaloosa-Walton Child Care

Destin.
The remainder of the club's
fundraising money this year was
combined with SAC money to
purchase a Mimio pad, which
turns a whiteboard into an inter-
active learning tool, for the
teachers. Because these Mimio
pads are $1500 each, they could
buy only one.
