The Mid-Bay Bridge Authority
(MBBA) has accepted a bid of
$48,732,465 to complete the Mid-Bay
Bridge Connector, a new toll road to con-
nect the north end of the Mid-Bay Bridge
to State Road 85 north of Niceville.
The winning bid was more than $1.6
million higher than the low bid.
Phase 1 of the connector is under con-

struction, and will connect the bridge to
State Road 20 and Range Road in
Phases 2 and 3 of the connector, for
which the bid was approved Oct. 28, will
continue around Rocky Bayou and north
of Northwest Florida State College to
State Road 85 north of the Mullet Site,
hugging the boundary of the Eglin mili-
tary reservation through swampy and
heavily forested terrain.

The projects will be paid for by driver
tolls generated from the 17-year-old
bridge and the new highway connector,
which will be completed in January 2014.
The winning bid, from Anderson
Columbia Inc., of Old Town, was the sec-
ond lowest of five bids, which ranged
from a low of $47,089,177 from Scott
Bridge Company Inc., Opelika, Ala., to a
high of ..-I'.'-, 2.S from GLF
Construction Corp., Miami.

The MBBA governing board voted to
accept Anderson Columbia's bid rather
than the lower bid from Scott Bridge after
hearing a recommendation from authority

The Heritage Museum of
Northwest Florida is tightening
its belt in the wake of govern-
ment budget cuts and the depar-

Michelle Severino, director '
of the museum, recently
announced her resignation as
she is planning to relocate after Michelle Severino
marrying departing Okaloosa
County Commissioner John Jannazo.
Severino's salary included $51,741 in annual
funding from Okaloosa County during fiscal year
2010, and the county listed her as an employee, said
county spokeswoman Kathy Newby.
Okaloosa County hired Severino as the

Okaloosa Gas trims prices

By Mike Griffith
Beacon Correspondent
Okaloosa Gas is cutting its
price for gas, and implementing
a new automated phone
answering system intended to
improve efficiency and save
money while improving cus-
tomer service, according to util-
ity officials.
Meantime, a gas board
member has won a $1,000
judgment after defeating the

City of Valparaiso's bid to
remove him before his term
During the Oct. 27 meeting
of the Okaloosa Gas Board,
Vice President of Corporate
Services David Underwood
briefed the board on features of
the gas district's new phone
answering system. He empha-
sized that although the new
answering system may initially

teams, it does not remove actual
human contact from customers.
"Customers can talk to an
actual person at any time sim-
ply by pressing or dialing the
zero on their phone," he said. If
they do so during business
hours, he said, they will imme-
diately be connected to a staff
member at Okaloosa Gas' head-
quarters in Valparaiso, not to a
call center in some remote part
of the world. Gas leaks or other
emergencies may also be
reported to Okaloosa Gas'
phone number at 729-4700.
"You will always be able to
talk to a real, English-speaking,
local person," Underwood said.
If customers choose to use
the new automated system,
Underwood said, they simply
follow the voice prompts they
hear when they first connect to
the gas district. They may
select from various options,
such as inquiring about their
account balance, paying a bill
over the phone, or purchasing

new products or services.
Another important feature of
the new system, Underwood
said, is its ability to call cus-
tomers automatically to give
them emergency warnings or
other important information. If
a gas line is about to be shut
down for repair, he said, the
system will automatically call
all the customers affected and
let them know of the shutdown
and how long it will last.
Similar messages can also
warn about gas leaks, fires, or
other emergencies. Customers
may choose whether to receive
such messages at their home or
cell phones, or by e-mail, fax,
or text message. The system

will also give customers auto-
matic reminders of unpaid bills,
and allow
them to pay
any late or
ly, by
phone or
said. This
feature, he Jose Lozano
added, will help customers
avoid having their gas cut off
because of forgotten payments,
and will save money for the gas
district by helping customers
pay on time.
Also during the meeting,
Okaloosa Gas CEO Jose
Lozano said the gas district is
cutting its prices slightly, to

reflect a five cent per therm
drop in the price it pays for nat-
ural gas-from 55 cents to 50
cents per therm.
The drop, Lozano said, is
being passed along to cus-
tomers .

told the Beacon that he recently
obtained a $1,000 court judg-
ment in his favor regarding his
previously-disputed seat on the
gas board.
Reid had been the City of
Valparaiso's representative on
the gas board until June 1 of
this year, when the Valparaiso
City Commission attempted to
replace him with H.H. Strong, a
member of the city commis-
sion. City officials asserted
that Reid wasn't properly rep-
resenting the city's interests, a
claim Reid denied.
Reid, however, challenged
the commission's decision, say-
ing he was legally entitled to
remain on the board until the
end of his four-year term in
March 2011. Reid said a court
decided in his favor about two
weeks ago, and ordered
Valparaiso to pay him about
$1,000 in court costs. Gas

otherwise unpaid volunteers.

Meanwhile, a recent scientif-
ic study has linked aircraft noise
to death by heart attack, though
it cautioned that no cause-effect
relation was found.
And a local engineer says his
own research indicates that air-
craft noise has increased near
Eglin during the past 30 years,
and is likely to increase signifi-
cantly when F-35s begin flying
over local neighborhoods.
An Air Force study-the
Supplemental Environmental
impact Statement (SEIS) recent-
ly stated that much of Valparaiso
and part of western Niceville
will be exposed to high noise
levels when the new planes
begin flying to and from the
base, especially when they use
Runway 01/19, the north end of

A statistical study published
in the November issue of
"Epidemiology," a scientific
journal, reported a correlation
between death from heart
attacks and long-term residen-
tial exposure to aircraft noise.
The study, entitled "Aircraft
Noise, Air Pollution, and
Mortality from Myocardial
Infarction," which was done in
Switzerland by Swiss
researchers, found an increased
incidence of death from heart
attack among people whose
homes are routinely exposed to
noise levels above 60 decibels,
especially among those who
have lived near airfields for 15
years or longer.
The research report stated;
"We analyzed 4.6 million per-
sons older than 30 years who
were followed from near the end
of 2000 through December
2005, including 15,532 deaths
from myocardial infarction," a
kind of heart attack.
"Mortality increased with
increasing level and duration of
aircraft noise," the study stated.
"Aircraft noise was associat-
ed with mortality from myocar-
dial infarction, with a dose-
response relationship for level
and duration of exposure," the
authors stated.

While noting a "link"
between high levels of airplane
noise and heart attacks, the
study did not go so far as to say
that such noise actually caused
heart attacks, and the authors
allowed that other factors might
be at work. Still, they added,
"our study adds to a growing
body of evidence supporting a
link between high
levels of exposure
to aircraft noise

periods of time
and mortality

The Air Force had no imme-
diate comment on the study.
Separately, Valparaiso resi-
dent Bob Webb, an electronic
engineer who has worked at
Eglin and for the Air Force

Research Laboratory, told the
Beacon that his own research
shows that aircraft noise levels
near Eglin have increased as
newer, more powerful aircraft
have been stationed at the base.
"Noise levels have increased
significantly over the last 30
years and represent reverse

the Beacon in an e-mail mes-
sage. "In 1977

Alternative 1A
will move the 75
dB profile all the
way to the far
northern boundary
of Niceville."
"If the draft SEIS Alternative
1A is allowed to be enacted,"
wrote Webb, "there will be a
further huge increase in noise
levels in Valparaiso and
Niceville with resultant highly
negative implications for both
cities. Valparaiso knows it

would be 'hammered' but it
doesn't seem like Niceville
understands their plight in this."
Webb recommended that the
Air Force base the new F-35s at
Duke Field, or build a new run-
way west of the current runway
01/19, in order to aim takeoffs
and landings away from popu-
lated areas.
The MSP executive commit-
tee is made up mostly of elected
and senior appointed officials
from local governments and

from Eglin Air Force Base, most
of whom have previously served
on the Joint Land Use Study
(JLUS) group and/or the Eglin
Installation Growth Committee,
said Jeff Fanto, Okaloosa
County Growth Coordinator.
The U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency (EPA) has
previously said that noise levels
of 65 or more decibels require
housing to be insulated against
indoor noise, and that homes
exposed to more than 75 deci-
bels cannot be insulated enough
to reduce indoor noise to accept-
able levels.
Thursday's meeting, said
Fanto, will address a new draft
of a Request for Proposals
(RFP) to hire a consulting firm
to determine how best to insu-
late those homes and buildings
that can be protected within the
65- 75-decibel area surrounding
the base, and how much such
protection may cost. About 992
residential properties are likely
to be affected, Fanto said.
Fanto said another 382
homes are above the 75-decibel
range, but the RFP will not
address possible costs of buying
those homes from their owners.
The RFP to be discussed
Thursday, he said "will be a first
step" toward solving the overall
noise problem, and will, hope-
fully, help officials decide how
to handle the more costly prob-

lem of homes that cannot be
Assuming an average cost of
about $200,000 to purchase
each of the 382 homes in the 75
dB range, it would cost over $60
million to buy them all, and no
source of funds for such pur-
chases has yet been found.
Executive committee mem-
bers contacted by the Beacon
had little to say about the
upcoming meeting.
Committee chairman Wayne
Harris, an Okaloosa County
commissioner, said he had not
seen the draft RFP prior to the
meeting, and was uncertain
about what would actually be
discussed at Thursday's meet-
ing. Valparaiso mayor Bruce
Arnold, another committee
member, said last Monday that
he had not yet been notified of
such a meeting and was unaware
that he was even on the commit-
tee. Officials at Eglin Air Force
Base had not yet replied to an
inquiry from the Beacon by last
Friday afternoon, although
Eglin base commander Colonel
Sal Nodjomian is reportedly a
committee member.
The noise attenuation study
to be requested in the draft RFP,
said Fanto, "will give us better
knowledge of what can and can-
not be attenuated. It will hope-
fully lead to a better data set of
what we're up against."

consultants from HDR
Engineering, an engineering and
construction management firm
that manages road-building proj-
ects for the bridge authority.
Vest told the MBBA board
that although Scott's bid was
lower than Anderson
Columbia's, some parts of
Scott's proposal appeared to be
"unrealistic" and what he called
"an aggressive quote with some
very liberal assumptions."
Vest said Scott's proposal did
not include sufficient detail of
how the firm planned to clear
and grub the roadway path in
only four weeks, or dispose of
waste generated during clearing
and construction.
MBBA legal counsel Mary
Kraemer also told the board that
when responding to the MBBA's
request for bids, the Scott pro-
posal left some pages blank that
had been marked "Do Not Leave
This Page Blank" in the MBBA's
In summary, Vest said, "I am
uncomfortable with Scott
Bridge's ability to perform the
construction at that price."
I.J. "Ike" Scott III, president
of Scott Bridge, attended the
Oct. 28 MBBA meeting, and
spoke in defense of his compa-
ny's ability to fulfill its bid. "I am
the third generation of my fami-
ly to operate this company," he
said. He said his company has
extensive experience in building
roads and bridges, with an excel-
lent record for safety and com-
munity relations as well as for
completing projects on time and
within budget.
"We only use top-notch peo-
ple," Scott said, "and we looked
at everything from top to bot-
tom" in preparing the company's
bid. "We are 100 percent com-
mitted to the job," he said,
adding that his company gets
bonds from its subcontractors to
ensure performance. "We won't
do anything to jeopardize our
reputation," he said.

Columbia or any of the other bid-
ders addressed the meeting.
After hearing from Vest and
Scott, MBBA members dis-
cussed which bid to accept.
MBBA member Daniel Bowers
favored going with Scott Bridge,
saying Scott's cheaper bid should
be accepted. "Two million dollars
was a big deal," when the board
considered bids for phase 1 of the
connector road, Bowers said, and
not to accept the lowest bid for
phases 2 and 3 would be "hypo-

Fellow board member James
D. Neilson, however, favored
Anderson Columbia's bid. "Mr.
Vest and HDR have always guid-
ed us well," he said of Vest's rec-
ommendation, and moved to
accept Anderson Columbia's bid.
The rest of the board agreed, with
only Bowers dissenting from a
motion to hire Anderson
In other business, the MBBA
board heard from Gregory B.
Carey, managing director of the
Investment Banking Division of
Goldman Sachs in New York
City. Carey recommended that
the MBBA approve a resolution

authorizing the issue of up to
$170 million, in new bonds, to
refinance previously-issued
bonds and help fund projects. No
final decision was made about
the bonds, but the matter is
scheduled for further discussion
at the MBBA's next meeting,
scheduled for 9 a.m. Nov. 18 at
Niceville City Hall.
At the Oct. 28 meeting, Carey
told the MBBA that although the
current bond market is "very
crowded" with new bond issues,
the new bonds should be mar-
ketable at an interest rate "in the
high five percent range."
Carey said that despite traffic
downturns in recent years, aver-
age bridge traffic and revenue
has increased an average of 8.4
percent per year since the bridge
was opened, and that an average
increase of about one percent per
year would be sufficient to pay
back the proposed bond issue.
Before the meeting
adjourned, Vest told the MBBA
that although bridge traffic
remains below that of previous

years, he is optimistic that traffic
will begin increasing again soon.
He said that revenue has
increased slightly due to a 50-
cent toll increase that took effect
earlier this year.
After the meeting, Vest told
the Beacon that the MBBA
recently purchased about 26
acres of land from Ruckel
Properties, along the northeast
corner of a large tract Ruckel
plans to develop into a planned
residential and commercial com-
munity near the Rocky Bayou
community in Niceville. Vest
said the raw land, which cost the
bridge authority $655,000, or
about $25,000 an acre, will pro-
vide room to build a portion of
the Mid-Bay Bridge Connector.
He said that although the road-
building plan includes space for
Ruckel to build an entrance to the
connector from Ruckel's devel-
opment, actually building such
an intersection will be up to
Ruckel Properties to do at their
own expense if they choose to do

stability and expansion for the
museum, which had suffered from
turnover at the executive level
since the retirement of its found-
ing director, the late Chris
LaRoche, in 2000, after 30 years
at the helm.
Severino's pay comprised the
bulk of the $64,595 given to the
museum by the county in fiscal
year 2010, which ended Sept. 30.
In FY 2011, the county eliminated
funding for her position. In addi-

tion, Newby said, the county
asked all county-funded museums
to absorb at least a 10 percent cut
in county funds for FY 2011.
Severino's compensation also
included additional money from
the museum itself and other
sources, said Ken Bailey, chair-
man of the Heritage Museum's
board of directors. Bailey said the
museum also eliminated its own
funding for Severino's post, decid-
ing not to replace her, but to turn
management over to museum
office manager Gina Marini.
"Gina is a long-term veteran," said

Bailey. "She will do a
wonderful job of man-
aging the museum for

local levels." The muse-
um, he said, is now oper-
ating in a "hunkering
down" mode, just trying

sources of funding for Gina Marini "Times are tough,"
the remainder of 2010 and 2011. Bailey said. "And we know that
"All budgets are extremely museums are not as important as
tight," Bailey said. "There have fire departments and deputy sher-
been cuts at the state, county, and iffs." Previous plans for expanding

Wednesday, November 3, 2010

and improving the museum are on
hold, he said, as are plans for relo-
cating the museum from its
secluded location in Valparaiso to
a more visible facility at
Northwest Florida State College,
"We still have a memorandum
of understanding with the col-
lege," Bailey said, but noted that
the agreement for the college to
someday host the museum never
included any promises of college
money to help finance such a
move. The future of the Heritage
Museum will probably be dis-

cussed at the next meeting of the
board of directors, which Bailey
said is tentatively scheduled for
Nov. 22.
Meanwhile, the museum plans
a fundraising wine tasting event at
the Boathouse Landing restaurant
in Valparaiso, to be held from 3 to
5 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 13.
Admission to the wine tasting will
cost $25 per person, including
wine glasses and samples of wine.
Information about the museum or
the wine tasting event is available
at www.heritage-museum.org or

Ask any doctor and he will

proper preventive medicine.
Family physicians are the
front line of medical treatment

many people experience is
finding a doctor who practices
family medicine, let alone a

comfortable relationship. The
warm smile, inviting hello, and
comfortably decorated waiting
room at Emerald Coast Family

quality family care it offers.

cian for your individual needs
can be difficult, but Emerald

"A dream deferred came true
at Holy Name of Jesus Catholic
Church," said Bishop John
Ricard during the dedication
and blessing of the Father Butler

Hundreds of parishioners

the program that told the story
of the former pastor Daniel J.
Butler, who inspired the church

for 17 years before he died Dec.
5, 2007.
"After many days of work
and prayer, we gather today to
dedicate the center," said
Ricard. "It will be a gathering
place to get to know our families
and grow our faith."
The architect handed the
plans to the bishop just before
the Rev. Dominic Dat Tran and

Deacon Gary McBride passed
him the key to the new building.
Contractors and visiting leaders
from neighboring parishes
joined in the procession around
the building.
"We are not just cleansing
brick and mortar," said Ricard.

The 32 days of training pro-
vide the best possible profes-
sional training and evaluation
for all cadets in the aspects of

each cadet's performance and
progress in officer traits, quali-
ties and professionalism while
attending the course.
Cadets in their junior and
senior years of college must
complete the leadership devel-
opment course. Upon successful

The Eagles and the Tigers clash in close quarters during Friday's hard-fought 31-21 Niceville loss.

Eagles fall short in clash

with tough Alabama team

By Sarah Clauson
Beacon Correspondent
The Eagles traveled to
Alabama Friday to take on the
6A State ranked Auburn High
School Tigers and fell short.
The 31-21 loss brought their
record to 6-2, but served as
good preparation for the post-
The Eagles came out strong
and gave an impressive first
quarter showing. A touchdown
pass from Kyle McDorman to
Brandon Burke put the first
seven points on the board mid-
way through the quarter. The
Tigers tried to answer with a big
play on their next possession,
but a fumble, recovered by
Colby Billings put the ball back
in Eagle hands. The Tigers

1817 John Sims Parkway, Niceville (behind Carriage Hills Realty)

quickly began to put pressure
on the Eagle's running game
and forced the punt.
Auburn tied the game at the
start of second quarter and then
expanded its lead to 17-7 with
10 seconds left in the half.
The Eagles weren't short on
effort, or on big plays. With just
two seconds left in the second
quarter, Andrew Mitchell
stepped in as quarterback and
completed a pass to McDorman
to narrow the gap to 17-14 at
the half.
But in the second half, the
Tigers scored twice more before
the Eagles were able to put their
last seven on the board with a
TD run by Spencer Pullen with
a minute left in the game to
bring the score to 31-21.

Coach John Hicks described
the Tigers as the sort of team
you might play in the third or
fourth round of the playoffs.
"You can't make many mis-
takes against them," he said.
"They're so good, and we made
a few." But, he added, "We
made some good plays on both
sides of the football, but you've
got to make just about every
play against them."
The loss, although difficult
for a team with such a winning
reputation to swallow, served as
great preparation for Niceville's
postseason. The Eagles will
travel to Crestview Friday to
play their last regular season
game, a district face-off which
will determine the title, and
their post-season matchup.

"My family's been fishing for eight generations. It's just a way of life.
That's why we've got to get this cleaned up."
Pete Floyd
Commercial Fisherman,
Pascagoula, Mississippi

When the spill hit, a lot of people said it would be the end. BP said
they would try to make this right. But how was an energy company
going to help a fisherman?

Putting People to Work
The first thing they did was rent my boat and hire me to help with the
cleanup. They made up my losses so I could pay my bills. And they
worked with all kinds of people here from fishermen and shrimpers
to restaurant owners. It helped us keep our businesses open. And it
helped us make ends meet so we could support our families.

Staying for the Long Haul
When they capped the well in July and finally killed it, we were all
relieved. But would BP stick around? Well, they did. The beaches
are clean and we're back on the water fishing so things are getting
a whole lot better. They are still here and have said they will keep
working for as long as it takes.

Getting Back to Normal
BP asked me to share my story with you to keep you informed. If you
still need help, please call 1-866-448-5816 or go to bp.com. If you're
wondering what you can do, well the next time you're shopping,
buy a little Gulf seafood. There is none finer.
