Ashley takes office as sheriff


By Mike Griffith
Beacon Corresoondent
Newly-elected Okaloosa County
Sheriff Larry Ashley was sworn in
Monday at the Northwest Florida
Fairgrounds, during a combined swearing-
in ceremony for him and farewell barbe-
cue for outgoing Sheriff Ed Spooner.
Spooner took over as the county's
interim sheriff last year, after Sheriff
Charlie Morris was arrested by the FBI
for masterminding a kickback scheme in


which certain sheriff's employees
were given illegal "performance
bonuses," and were then directed
by Morris to kick back part of
the bonus money to Morris, who
used it for personal expenses,
including gambling trips and par-
ties in Las Vegas.
When Morris was caught and
removed from office, Spooner,
then a senior officer with the
Florida Department of Law


Larry Ashley


Enforcement (FDLE), was
appointed by Gov. Charlie
Crist to take charge of the
sheriff's office until a new
sheriff could be elected.
During an interview with
the Bay Beacon, Ashley said
he feels vindicated by his
election Nov. 2. He also said
he planned no action against
any remaining members of the
sheriff's office who a federal


Blaze guts Valparaiso house


Couple flees

stubborn fire;

heater eyed

By Del Lessard
Beacon Staff Writer
An early-morning fire
destroyed the home of a
Valparaiso couple Monday.
No one was seriously hurt.
The alarm came in at
5:53 a.m., and the Niceville
Fire Department was the
first unit on scene at 218
Edge Ave., Valparaiso, at
6:02 a.m., according to
Valparaiso Fire Chief Mark
Norris. Valparaiso volun-
teer firefighters arrived two
minutes later.
The front of the house
was already engulfed in
flames. The owners and
occupants, Carlos and
Mavis Gallegos, had
escaped the blaze.
The East Niceville and
Eglin Air Force Base fire
departments also sent
engines and firefighters.
It took about 90 minutes
to control the raging fire,
Norris said, in part because
the house contained a large
amount of combustibles.
Norris said the owners
reportedly smelled smoke
shortly after starting a gas
heater in the garage. Norris
said Mr. Gallegos, 83,
opened the door to the
garage to investigate, and
received minor bums on his
hand. He was treated on
the scene.
Damage to the home and
contents, including two cars
in the garage, was estimated
by Norris at $125,000. He
said the State Fire Marshal's
Office was investigating but
could not immediately
determine the cause.


Firefighters battle flames shooting from the
attic of the home of Carlos and Mavis Gallegos,
218 Edge Ave., Valparaiso, Monday.
Valparaiso's fire chief said the owners smelled
smoke shortly after turning on a gas heater.
Right, Mrs. Gallegos is comforted by neighbors
as firefighters fight the stubborn fire.

grand jury said gave money to Morris out
of bonus proceeds. A number of employ-
ees did so, according to the grand jury, but
were not charged.
Ashley had been a major in the sher-
iff's office under Morris, and was the first
witness to inform the FBI about his suspi-
cions of corruption.
The information Ashley gave the FBI
led to a federal investigation and to

Smith to retire


as NHS principal


By Del Lessard
Beacon Staff Writer
Niceville High School
Principal Linda Smith will retire
June 30 at after 38 years as an
educator in Niceville and
Valparaiso.
"I wouldn't have missed it for
the world," said Smith, a former
music teacher, using song lyrics
to describe the oppor-
tunity she has had to
work with schoolchild-
ren over nearly four
decades.
Smith was selected
for the top job at NHS,
Okaloosa County's
largest high school, in
January 2006.
"I can't believe I'm
really here," she said n
Thursday in her office, "I started
in the closet over there," referring

Collegiate High director retiring


By Del Lessard
Beacon Staff Writer
Northwest Florida State
College is searching for a
new director for its charter
high school.
Charla Cotton,
who has been the
director of
NW FSC' s
Collegiate High
School since it
opened in August
2000, will retire in
February, college
officials said.
Prior to coming Charla
to the Niceville
campus of the college,
Cotton, served 10 years on
the Okaloosa County
School Board, leaving in
1998.


"It's been a privilege, an
educator's dream to start a
school," said Cotton, 65, of
Shalimar. "The greatest
privilege is to be up close
and personal with the stu-
dents now, and to
see their successes
as graduates."
Most of the 275
students at the
grade 10-12 char-
ter high school
earn a two-year
college degree
while earning their
:otton high school diplo-
ma.
The college announced
that it is seeking to fill the
position. Applications are
due by Nov. 15. The salary
range is $50,000 to $99,000.

NOISE
From page A-1
"noise-attenuation" study for
which proposals are now
being sought.
Okaloosa County Growth
Project Coordinator Jeff Fanto
said the study area is the
Military Influence Planning
Area (MIPA) II that were
identified in the 2009 JLUS
report. MIPA II designates
areas in Okaloosa, Walton and
Santa Rosa counties that may
be subject to jet noise from
planes based at Eglin Air
Force Base. The chief areas
affected are Valparaiso and
northwest Niceville.
Fanto said the contractor
winning the proposed study
contract would:
-Include public participa-
tion and a schedule of public
workshops.
-Identify and map the
types and number of build-
ings, both public and private,
that are in MIPA II zones.
-Present strategies and
methodologies for reducing
jet noise inside occupied
buildings, including recom-
mendations for funding
sources for any necessary
soundproofing work.
Fanto said it will be left up
to contractors responding to
the county's Request for
Proposal (RFP) to estimate
how long the study would
take, and how much it would
cost. After the responses are
evaluated and ranked, the
MSP would ask the Defense
Department's Office of
Economic Adjustment (OEA)
and/or the state, to fund the
study.
The MSP, which is com-
posed of elected and appoint-


ed local-government officials,
as well as Air Force represen-
tatives, unanimously agreed to
move forward with the pro-
posed noise attenuation study.
Fanto said Okaloosa County's
procurement department
would be in charge of releas-
ing the RFP.
Fanto also told MSP execu-
tive committee members that
Okaloosa County has worked
with the Florida Defense
Alliance (FDA) to ask the
state legislature to require
seller disclosures concerning
the sale of properties in noise
zones around military bases.
He said the legislature took no
action on the proposal in 2010
due to strong opposition by
Realtors.
For the 2011 legislative
session, Fanto said, the FDA
again proposes legislation to
require sellers to disclose
whether a property is in a
high-noise zone. Such a
requirement could have a dis-
proportionate effect on much
of Valparaiso, much of which
is in jet-noise zones that the
Air Force has identified as
incompatible for residential
use once F-35 training reaches
capacity in future years unless
noise-reduction materials are
installed. Some neighbor-
hoods in Valparaiso would be
deemed incompatible for resi-
dential use even if noise-
reduction materials are
installed, according to an Air
Force study.
Valparaiso resident Candy
Hansard strongly objected to
the proposed legislation say-
ing it amounted to ill-' a
trap" for owners selling their
homes just because Realtors
had a strong lobby in the
Legislature.

SMITH
From page A-1
"People in the community are
very proud."
Smith first came to Okaloosa
County as a child in a military
family. Attending school at the
former Wright Elementary
School (where a Home Depot is
now located), and Pryor Middle,
she graduated from
Choctawhatchee High, then
attended classes at Okaloosa-
Walton Junior College in
Niceville.
After earning a bachelor's
degree in music education at
Mississippi State College in
1973, Smith began to impartw
her love of music to elementary
students at Niceville's Edge
Elementary. When local commu-
nity members swayed the school
board to remodel and renovate
rather than close Edge, Smith
said she loaded "my banjo on
my knee," and began traveling to
teach music to fifth graders at
Lewis and to sixth graders at
Ruckel, while the renovation
was underway.
She also continued taking
classes at nights, on weekends
and during the summer breaks,

earning her specialist, master's
and doctoral degrees in educa-
tional leadership from Florida
State University in 1978.
After more than six years at
Edge, Smith moved to
Valparaiso Elementary, which
then had over 800 elementary
students. At Valparaiso Smith
began working as a guidance
counselor and assistant princi-
pal, later splitting her time as an
assistant principal at Plew
Elementary in the mornings and


Valparaiso Elementary in the
afternoons.
The change to administrative
positions meant Smith no longer
taught music. "That's a part of
my life I miss very much," she
said.
"I'm from a family of teach-
ers," said Smith, whose mother
and older brother were also edu-
cators in Okaloosa County. "I
can't think of anything I'd rather
have done."
Smith said she often sees


people in the community and
wonders to herself, "when did I
teach you?" Grandchildren of
some of her former students are
now coming through NHS,
Smith said. In fact several
Niceville High teachers, includ-
ing recent teacher of the year
April Branscom, had Smith as a
teacher while growing up, she
said. "The circle's not going to
end," she quipped.
While still examining her
options after retirement from the
school district, Smith expressed
a smidgen of regret that nearly
five years ago she entered the
state DROP program thinking
she'd be ready to retire next June
at the age of 59.
"I truly believe teaching is a
calling," Smith said. "You can
stand in a comer and teach, but if
you really inspire, it's a calling."
Schools Superintendent
Alexis Tibbetts said that whoev-
er replaces Smith at the county's
largest high school will most
certainly have to have experi-
ence as a principal. Tibbetts
declined to speculate on who she
would recommend to the school
board as Smith's successor. The
opening will be posted in
January.

ASHLEY
From page A-1
Morris' arrest, and led in turn to
further state and local investiga-
tions and convictions on both fed-
eral and state charges against
Morris and co-conspirators.
"My choices were limited,"
Ashley said of his decision to
approach the FBI. "I knew that
anyone who stands up in such a
situation will create adversaries."
Had Ashley's accusations against
Morris not been sustained by
investigations, Ashley could have
been accused of disloyalty to his
elected boss. But with the suspi-
cions he had, he said, it was his
duty as a law officer to expose
what he saw as a corrupt situation.
Following Morris' arrest,
Ashley became the sheriff's
office's chief deputy under
Spooner, then decided to become
a candidate for sheriff in the spe-
cial election called to fill the two
years remaining in Morris' four-
year term. Some of his opponents
in the election implied that
Ashley, as a former senior mem-
ber of Morris's organization,
should be removed as part of a
clean sweep of the sheriff's office.
"I did what I had to do,"
Ashley said of his decisions. "Any
time you become a whistleblower,
some people will oppose you, but


others will stand behind you.
Those who knew me best stood
up for me."
As the county's new sheriff,
Ashley said, his first goal will be
to consolidate emergency com-
munications within the county. He
said he
wants to
combine the
sheriff's
office emer- .
agency dis-
patch sys-
tem with the
county's
emergency
medical and
fire dispatch Ed Spooner
systems in
the 911 emergency call center,
which will soon be moved to a
new facility in Niceville.
Ashley said the sheriff's office
already handles about 89 percent
of the total calls received.
Consolidation, he said, would
make better use of manpower, and
of the computer-aided dispatch
systems within the new call cen-
ter.
Another goal, Ashley said, will
be to institute a physical fitness
program for deputy sheriffs. "I'll
probably model the system on
that of Citrus County, which
already has a good program that
meets all legal requirements."


Ashley said he wants to set
standards for exercises and physi-
cal performance for deputies to
ensure they can safely handle the
physical requirements of their job,
which may include such emer-
gency tasks as running after crim-
inals, climbing over obstacles,
moving equipment or people, and
personal combat with dangerous
persons.
"I plan to set standards, then
give deputies up to a year to get
into shape to meet them," Ashley
said.
Asked how he would prevent a
recurrence of the sort of corrup-
tion that occurred under Morris,
Ashley said he plans to put
"checks and balances" in place
through a combination of internal
and external audits of sheriff's
office finances. This, he said, will
provide transparency and help
prevent any mishandling of funds
in the future.
Ashley said he does not antici-
pate any disciplinary actions
against remaining members of the
sheriff's office who gave bonus
money to Morris but were not
accused of wrongdoing. Nor will
any employees who weren't
charged be asked to repay the
monies, he said.
Fifteen employees, including
three who were charged by feder-
al or state prosecutors and were

Beach by Okaloosa County Judge T. Patterson Maney.


fired, were named in a federal
indictment in April 2009 as hav-
ing accepted bonuses at Morris'
behest, from which substantial
parts were "kicked back or given"
to the sheriff. At least some of the
employees may have been told
that the money was for someone
in need, prosecutors have said.
Twenty-six such "bonus pay-
ments" were listed in the indict-


ment. The cited payments totaled
$194,000, ranged from $3,000 to
$15,000, and averaged $7,461.
Employee return payments to
Morris totaled $115,500, ranged
from $1,000 to $12,000, and aver-
aged $4,442.
In addition to Morris, charged
in the scheme were former
employees Teresa Adams, Mike
Coup, David Yacks, Sandra


Norris. Charged with grand theft
was former employee Sabra
Thornton. All were convicted.
"Performance bonuses are a
legitimate management tool to
reward people for good work,"
Ashley said. The remaining
employees in the sheriff's office,
he said, have already been sub-
jected to federal, state, and inter-
nal agency investigations, and it is
now time to move on. He said that
any personnel actions he takes in
the future will reflect the fact that
"every sheriff has his own staff,"
but there will be no "mob mental-
ity" of punishing anyone merely
because they worked for Morris.
Ashley also said he is proud of
a new crime-mapping system now
available online to the public. By
accessing a web site at
www.crimereports.com, he said,
citizens can quickly see the loca-
tions, times, and types of crimes
and traffic accidents that have
happened recently in their own
neighborhoods or elsewhere in
the county. They can also find the
residences of registered sex
offenders, and gather other useful
information.
Crime reports posted on the
web site maps contain sheriff's
office report numbers, enabling
people to request detailed police
reports on specific crimes or inci-
dents that concern them, he said.

Bowing

to owners,

Valparaiso

nixes some

sidewalks


By Del Lessard
Beacon Staff Writer
Despite a promise of over $1
million in federal "stimulus"
money to install sidewalks in
neighborhoods around Lewis
School, the Valparaiso City
Commission bowed to some
homeowners opposed to sidewalks
in their front yards.
Indian Shores and South
Bayshore Drive were removed
from plans to build neighborhood
sidewalks after about a dozen peo-
ple dug in their heels at a commis-


sion meeting Monday. The city
will go ahead with the rest of the
previously announced project,
installing sidewalks on 11 other
streets in the southeast part of the
city, in part for students walking or
riding their bikes to Lewis School,
which has grades two through
eight.
Jim Abel, president of the
homeowners association in Indian
Shores, said most residents there
opposed building sidewalks on city
rights of way in the neighborhood.
He said there was so little traffic


that schoolchildren could safely
walk in the road or on the shoulder.
Joe Morgan, of South Bayshore
Drive, and others, said they and
their own children grew up safely
walking and riding bikes in the
streets in Valparaiso.
Darren Boisjolie, of South
Bayshore Drive, suggested
installing speed bumps instead of
sidewalks to improve pedestrian
safety.
J.C. Baltz, also of South
Bayshore, said that installing side-
walks would invite people to come


Wednesday, November 10, 2010


onto private property, including
private docks.
Scott Teel, ofArrowpoint Cove,
said installation of a sidewalk
would force him to move his sprin-
kler system off the city right of way
and detract from his property's
appearance.
"Sidewalks really are safer,"
said Commissioner Neal Shermer,
who got Abel to acknowledge that
14 owners in Indian Shores favor
sidewalks, while 26 oppose them.
Commissioners voted unani-
mously to eliminate Indian Shores


and South Bayshore from the side-
walk plans. The city will go ahead
with installation of sidewalks on
Grandview, that portion of Jasmine
outside of Indian Shores, Montana,
Georgia, Ferndell, Poincianna,
Tennessee, Florida, Mississippi,
Rose and Vine, officials said.
South Bayshore and Indian
Shores will remove approximately
4,000 feet of the 16,910-feet length
of the planned sidewalks. Deletion
of the two segments would cut
about $160,000 from the estimated
total of $750,000.

Sinfonia to auction 'ArtStrings'


Sinfonia Gulf Coast will
string along the creative I i-'
of its 2010-2011 season with a
special exhibit and auction
Nov. 13 to April 30.
Sinfonia ArtStrings: A
Painted Violin Exhibit will
combine visual and performing
arts to raise funds and aware-
ness for the Emerald Coast
orchestra. Twenty-six artists
were presented unfinished vio-
lins to use as canvases with any
art medium they chose. Their
final works will be on display
at many of the Sinfonia con-
certs during this season and at
a storefront on the west end of
Grand Boulevard at Sandestin.
On Feb. 4, during Sinfonia's
"Celebrating Five Years of
Sinfonia" event, the works of


art will be auctioned off.
Winners of the violins will be
honored at a special reception
at the conclusion of the
ArtStrings exhibit.
Proceeds will benefit the
James A. Fuller Memorial
Fund for Music Education,
supporting Sinfonia's outreach
initiatives. The memorial fund
was created in honor of the late
father of Demetrius Fuller,
who is music and artistic direc-
tor of the orchestra.
"Last year, amazingly tal-
ented musicians from around
the world, who performed in
Sinfonia's Classical
Connections series, visited 18
different area schools and
played and taught music to
7,500 students," said Stacey


Brady, Sinfonia Gulf Coast
board president and director of
communications for Grand
Boulevard at Sandestin.
"Music enriches lives and qual-
ity of life. Music education is
an important part of Sinfonia's
overall objective and the James
A. Fuller Memorial Fund sup-
ports this in a meaningful
way."

A t the start of World War II
Niceville played an important
but little known role in build-
ing up Eglin Air Force Base, literally,
from a small Army Air Corps gun-
nery range dating back to the late
1930s to the world's largest air base,
and home to tens of thousands of mil-
itary and civilian workers.

The federal government had a
portable sawmill on what is today's
Eglin Air Force Base reservation
since 1908. That's when most of the
present military reservation was part
of the Choctawhatchee National For-
est. When the national forest was
given to the military June 27, 1940,
the Army Air Corps assumed owner-
ship.


Sawmill that was located on the
Mullet Festival Site.


Old water tower located on the
Mullet Festival Site. It was
demolished in 1994.


In 1940, the government set up the
mill at the Mullet Festival site, at the
corner of Highway 85 and College
Boulevard in Niceville, to help build
up Eglin Air Force Base.

By producing its own lumber from
the abundant forests on the reserva-
tion, the military hoped to save
money as it built what became the
largest air base in the free world.
There were a few smaller mills in op-
eration throughout the reservation,
but the mill in Niceville was the main
supplier of lumber during the World
War II build-up at Eglin.

The government-owned sawmill cov-
ered 23 acres and produced about
20,000 board-feet per day in the
1950s.

The government continued to oper-
ate the Niceville Sawmill until 1958
when the Bay Lumber Company,
Niceville, took it on a five year lease.
That private group apparently got as-
sistance from the late Congressman
Bob Sikes. Ownership changed
again in 1968, when a second group
took over the lease.

The new group, Jerry Hodges, of
Hodges Cash & Carry of DeFuniak
Springs, who later partnered with
Tommy McCall, Buddy Supple and
Larry Paulk, ran the mill for several
years. Niceville at the time was a
fairly small community with lots of
potential growth. McCall, Supple,
Hodges and Paulk thought that such
a beautiful area, with a fast growing
military base, was sure to thrive.
With growth, building supplies
would be needed. So on Nov. 1, 1970,
the door of Niceville Cash & Carry
opened on Niceville Avenue, just a
short distance from the sawmill site.
In 1973 the government closed the
out-of-date and unprofitable mill.
However Niceville Cash & Carry was
already established and continued
supplying building supplies and
other goods to the growing commu-
nity.

Niceville Cash & Carry started out
with the participating partners and a
delivery truck. In 1971 it was de-
cided help was needed and the first
employee was hired, Evelyn Reese.
Mrs. Reese became a local fixture in

the budding new lumber and hard-
ware store, taking orders and selling

Eagles win district title in comeback

essiM d Bulldog field goal |


sealed one-point victory iot


By Sarah Clauson
Beacon Correspondent
The frigid temperature didn't
keep the fans from filling both
sides of the Crestview High
School stadium in Niceville's
closest and most important win
of the season, 28-27 over the
Bulldogs. The Bulldogs, with no
regular season victory against
the Eagles since 1982, played
with an aggressive spirit that
showed how badly they wanted
it.
An early touchdown gave
Crestview a 6-0 lead, and fueled
its already fierce thirst for victo-
ry. An Eagle completion to Jon
Hudson, followed by an Andrew
Mitchell point after, put the
Eagles on the board, and into the
lead, but not for long. The bull-
dogs received the kickoff and
ran the ball back for an explo-
sive 95-yard touchdown. They
scored the two points after and
kept their momentum going
with another touchdown just
seconds before the buzzer, send-
ing the Eagles into halftime

trailing 21-7.
The second half began a new
game. The Eagles' first drive
made a huge statement with suc-
cessful running plays that led to
a touchdown completion to
Mikel Belcher to narrow the
gap. After the defense held the
Bulldogs to a fruitless two-
minute possession, the Eagle
offense took over and sent
Spencer Pullen into the end
zone to tie the game late in the
third.
The vigor of the second half
swelled even more with an
Eagle interception by Kevin
Chasteen on Crestview's next
possession. The fourth quarter
was a true showdown, with the
district title on the line. The
Bulldogs edged ahead 27-21
with seven minutes remaining,
only to surrender the lead for the
final time, thanks to an impres-
sive 20-yard touchdown run by
Hudson. With Niceville ahead
by a single point, and only sec-
onds on the clock, the nail biter
came down to a field goal


Grades two through five meet
Monday and Wednesday, 5:30-7

attempt by the Bulldogs. The
missed kick clinched it for the
Eagles.
"We just came back much
sharper, executed much better,"
coach John Hicks said of the
Eagles' tough victory. "Our
offensive line played a lot better
in the second half, and the
defense made a few stops."
Junior running back Jon
Hudson said of the victory, "It
feels amazing." The young play-
er scored two of Niceville's


touchdowns.
The hard-fought comeback
gave the Eagles the District 2
4A title, along with home field
advantage against Navarre in the
Regional quarterfinals Nov. 19.

"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.
