Institute aims at economic development


By Del Lessard
Beacon Staff Writer
Thirty-four community leaders grad-
uated Thursday from a 10-month
"Leadership Okaloosa" course at
Northwest Florida State College's
Leadership Institute and sponsored by
area chambers of commerce.
For many Okaloosa residents per-
haps, the first they heard about the col-
lege's Leadership Institute was in the
report of a House special investigator
delving into the relationship between
Rep. Ray Sansom and the college. One


of three allegations
against Sansom
which was found to
have probable cause
for a violation of
House rules, was his
role in the creation
and funding of $7.5
million for construc-
tion and operation
of the Leadership Julie Cotton
Institute at NWFSC.
The report filed by special investiga-
tor D. Stephen Kahn June 26 traced the


Leadership Institute from a "concept
paper" developed at the direction of for-
mer college president James R.
Richburg in August 2007. In 2008 a
House appropriations bill tacked on
$7.5 million for construction of the
Leadership Institute atop the then-$18
million Student Services building
appropriation. Sansom later accepted a
$110,000 a year part-time job at the
college where one of his duties as a col-
lege vice-president was to oversee the
Leadership Institute, according to Kahn.
While the Leadership Institute at


NWFSC may sound like something
new, it's part of a longtime college mis-
sion in support of economic develop-
ment in Okaloosa and Walton counties.
Before the Leadership Institute was cre-
ated last year, the college formed the
Total Quality Institute, which turned
into the Institute for Professional
Development, before being renamed the
Corporate Training Institute.
The Institute has already conducted
several training sessions over the past
year to develop effective leaders for
businesses, government and non-profit


The Florida Department of
Transportation (FDOT) recently opened
a bid for the SR 85 at SR 123
Interchange project which extends from
south General Bond Boulevard to north
of the Okaloosa Regional Airport.
The apparent low bidder for the job
is Anderson Columbia Company, Inc. of
Lake City, Fla. Anderson Columbia was
one of five construction firms vying for
the job, submitting a bid of
$25,155,801. The bid is being reviewed
by FDOT before the award is official. A
construction date will be announced
later.
Proposals were also received from
SEMA Construction, Inc. $26,144,444;
R.B. Baker Construction, Inc.,
$26,255,772; C.W. Roberts Contracting,

entities, according to Julie Cotton, the
institute's director since July 2008. The
Institute's list of clients includes major
defense contractors in the area,
Choctawhatchee Electrical Cooperative,
local chambers of commerce, White
Wilson Medical Center and non-profits
such as United Way of Okaloosa
County.
Cotton said the Leadership Institute
also runs leadership programs for local

This new grade-separated inter-
change will provide a flyover ramp for
traffic on SR 85 South heading north-
bound along SR 123. The project will
also widen SR 85 South from four to six
lanes and will reconstruct the entrance
and exit to the Okaloosa County
Regional Airport.
Two flyovers will be constructed on
SR 85 to elevate through traffic on SR
85 over the airport exit. A new connec-
tor road will be added on the north side
of SR 85, linking the current airport exit
to SR 123 via two, single-lane ramps.
The project also includes signage,
pavement markings and lighting for the
new ramp. Also, five stormwater reten-
tion ponds will be constructed.
This project is being funded through
the American Recovery and
Reinvestment Act of 2009.

Board

seeks ways

to reduce

lease costs

with Eglin

By Del Lessard
Beacon Staff Writer
The Niceville, Valparaiso,
Okaloosa County Regional
Sewer Board is seeking options
for reducing the amount of leased
Eglin land the utility needs to
disperse treated sewer effluent.
The regional sewer board has
leased 290 acres of the Eglin
reservation property since 1981.
About 270 acres of the land is
used to dispose of treated waste-
water effluent on grasses and hay
crops that are planted on the
sprayfield to take up nitrogen and
other nutrients. The remaining 20
or so acres are used as a buffer at
the boundaries of the sprayfield,
or for roads on the sprayfield that
cannot be planted in grass. The
base lease for the 290 acres has
been at no cost to the utility for
the past 28 years.
Last month Jim Vest, executive
director of the Mid-Bay Bridge
Authority, briefed the sewer board

City buys land for drainage pond

By Kenneth Books
Beacon Staff Writer
A property at 1402 Bayshore
Drive was purchased by the city of
Niceville for $182,400 for con-
struction of a stormwater holding
pond. The house will be torn down.
The money for the purchase
will come from the city's stormwa-
ter account.
The Niceville City Council last
week agreed at a special meeting to
purchase the lot on Bayshore Drive
to support a stormwater project.
The city agreed to pay William
Domorad $182,400 for the .38-
acre property at 1402 Bayshore
Drive, on the corner of Valparaiso
Boulevard.
City Clerk Dan Doucet said the
price was something of a bargain.
He said the property was appraised
at $250,000. City Planner Wanda
Cruttenden said the appraisal was
performed by The Harbeson
Agency, Fort Walton Beach at the
city's request.
A house on the property will be
torn down and a stormwater pond
will be constructed to hold

amount set forth in the Florida
Statute upon enactment of the
recognition Program) down to $85
for the 2008-09 school year and
now to $75 for 2009-10. However,
the statute does indicate that the
amount awarded is dependent
upon fund availability and the
number and size of the schools
eligible.
In years past, Niceville High
School has voted to give all of its
recognition money to faculty and
staff as bonuses, with full-time
staff, regardless of whether or not
they are instructional, receiving
the most. Last year, each full-time
NHS staff member received $900
as Niceville High received the
most recognition money of all the


schools in the Twin Cities area,
$177,315.
NHS Principal Linda Smith
said her school did not earn an "A"
this year because the school "did
not have the anticipated gains with
challenged readers." Smith added
that 50 percent of a school's low-
est quartile students have to make
learning gains in order to stay in
the running for an "A" ranking.
Niceville High had just 44 percent
making adequate yearly gains in
2008-09.
School recognition funds are a
direct allocation of state lottery
funds. Once the money is
released, Okaloosa County school
district is set to receive
$1,823,335.

on the progress of a 10-mile long
connector road it is building from
the north end of the toll bridge to
Highway 85, north of Crestview.
The road, which will begin con-

much as 50 acres of the spray-

another 30 acres on the south side
of the sprayfield that will be cut


off from direct access by tractors

Townhome INSTITUTE


complex

eyed for

Bullock

By Stacie Morgan
Beacon Staff Writer
Randall Skinner, co-owner and
manager of D & R Development,
Niceville, is proposing to build a
20-unit townhouse development
in the "general location" of
Bullock Boulevard, according to
the July 8 agenda of the Okaloosa
County Board of Adjustments,
which is slated to meet at 1:30
p.m. today in the county Water
and Sewer Administration
Complex, 1804 Lewis Turner
Blvd., Fort Walton Beach.
Skinner is requesting a vari-
ance from the Okaloosa County
Land Development Code,
Ordinance 91-1. The code
requires a right-of-way width of
50 feet but Skinner is asking for
just 35 feet for a portion of
Bullock Boulevard and a right-of-
way variance of 42 feet for all of
Richgrove Lane.
"The parcel is 1.53 acres," said
Jason Autrey, engineering manag-
er for the Okaloosa County Public
Works Department. "The way I
understand it is, Mr. Skinner is
requesting the variance first and if
it's approved he'll have his engi-
neer design the subvision."
The variance for the townhome
complex was applied for in 2006,
though the county denied the
request. Skinner recently decided
to reapply and would only say,
"We have reason to believe the
request will go through this time."
The property is currently
zoned Residential Urban Duplex
District (RUD) with a future land
use map designation of Medium
Density Residential (MDR).
Though D & R Development,
in business since 2005, does
indeed plan to build the complex,
a date has not been set. Autrey
said he has "not, of yet, seen a set
of plans."
"We don't have a time frame,"
said Skinner. "It basically depends
on if the military comes in." The
intent, he said, was to supply
affordable housing for the mili-
tary.

have to negotiate another Eglin
lease for the second and third seg-
ments before it can start construc-

Corbin said it makes sense for
the sewer board to look at ways to
reduce its need for sprayfield land.
The board agreed unanimously to
ask its engineer, Glenn Stephens,
of Polyengineering, to develop

qualified college faculty mem-
bers using off-the-shelf instruc-
tional units. Cotton said the
Leadership Institute also con-
ducts on-site training for middle
and senior management that can
be customized to meet clients
special needs.
That business model of fees
for training at the Leadership
Institute is expected to generate
a "profit" within the next five
years, which will be used in part
for scholarships, Cotton said.

Although more than half of the
utility's licensed capacity can be
given extra treatment that makes
the product safe for irrigation of
golf courses, public parks, school
and cemetery properties as well as
residential lawns, the sprayfields
are still required in the winter,

The Leadership Institute con-
ducts its classes in the Gallery of

.THE BAY BEACON


OWNERS
From page A-1
location on John Sims Parkway,
next to Turkey Creek, because "it
won't get lost in the shuffle."
After extensive renovations,
The Filling Station, a new sports
bar offering beverages on tap,
wings, sandwiches and other food
items in a friendly atmosphere,
opened Dec. 17. Seven TVs are
tuned to sporting events and two
pool tables are in a side room.


Brian Pugh and his wife, Rachel,
left Washington state and moved
with their two children to
Okaloosa County to fulfill his
long-time dream of owning a
sports bar. They stayed with his
dad in Shalimar for a couple of
months looking for a suitable loca-
tion. They finally found their busi-
ness home in Niceville in an older
building on John Sims that has
variously housed a swimming
pool business, a flooring supply
business, an eBay business as well


as two previous restaurant incarna-
tions, one Oriental the other
Mexican.
Pugh said business owners
from Crabtree's Imports to Tisa's
restaurant and lounge are getting
together to beautify the area.
"We're trying to do everything we
can," he said, especially improve
street lighting.
"This (area) is a focus point for
Niceville," said Sun Thomas,
owner of Sun's Korean
Restaurant for the past nine


years. After
enduring the
years-long
state con-
struction proj-
ect that made
it difficult for
regular
patrons to
reach the
restaurant, Sun Thomas
business started to pick up after
construction ended and just as the
economy hit recession.


Nonetheless, she recently expand-
ed into an adjacent space formerly
occupied by a pawn shop.
The earlier poor street lighting
reduced her ability to fill the extra
tables in the new addition with
dinner traffic, she said.
The lure of fresh donuts appar-
ently overcame the Department of
Transportation's concrete traffic
barriers last year as hungry
motorists still managed to buy
their sweet treats at the Tast-T-O
stand, 586 E. John Sims Parkway.


Owner Mark Swanson said the
two-plus years of highway con-
struction in front of his store was
"not as bad as we thought it would
be," although business has picked
up a little since the end of con-
struction. "Without a good product
they wouldn't come back," he
said.
Swanson gets to work about
midnight to prepare for the arrival
of his regular clients, who start lin-
ing up for his Tast-T-O donuts

If you're planning to repaint
your home or put on vinyl siding
or planking, you're going to be
very interested in the most fasci-
nating new product on the home
improvement venue. It's called
Rhino Shield Ceramic Coating
and it goes on like paint. Yet, that
is where the similarity ends, as
Rhino Shield lasts a whole lot
longer. The coating system is
guaranteed for 25 years not to
peel, chip or fade. The product
also reflects 90 percent of the
sun's rays, helping homes to stay
cooler and more energy-efficient.
Rhino Shield is a waterproof,
durable, maintenance-free exte-
rior coating. "It's the most salt-tol-
erant coating on the market and
vital to homes in a coastal area,"
said Mike Redmond, Florida
Panhandle dealer of Rhino
Shield.
"The coating has been tested
and approved by BASF, one of
the most respected chemical
companies in the world, which
reported that Rhino Shield excels
at flexibility, is tear resistant, and
has tensile strength, breathabili-
ty, and viscosity," said Redmond.
Holding a glass vial of the 3M
Ceramic molecule microspheres,
Redmond demonstrated how
one can touch the product, but

To illustrate the insulation
properties of Rhino Shield
Ceramic Coating, Redmond held
untreated, painted, and Rhino
Shield-treated glass panes in
front of a household incandes-
cent heat lamp. While the unfil-
tered glass allowed tangible heat
to pass, and painted glass
allowed some heat to pass, the
glass pane treated with Rhino
Shield Ceramic Coating allowed
virtually no heat to pass through.
"This extra strength to your
home now insulates it against
heat or cold, gives it UV protec-
tion against the sun and sound-
proofs it," said Redmond. "And in
the application process, it fills in
all those little cracks and gives
your home a fresh new surface."
Before Rhino Shield is
applied, thorough preparation is
part of the application process.
"Our technicians are very con-
scientious about mildew
removal, Redmond said.
"Following the cleaning and prep
work, we conduct an inspection
of the job site with the customer.

Rhino Shield customer Mary-
Joe Horner, wife of Gen. (ret.)
Charles A. Horner, is very
pleased to have treated their
Shalimar home with the ceramic
coating. "Mike (Redmond) was
especially helpful and informa-
tive to work with," said Horner.
"The workers were pleasant, got
to work on time, and the work
was done in less than the time
promised."
"The house looks excellent; I

Horner.

From page A-4
around 5:30 a.m., sometimes earli-
er.
Steve Majors, owner of
Bayou's Best Auto and Marine,
said personal watercraft owners
appreciate having an experienced
marine repair business closer than
the beach. Being on the main strip
was an important consideration
when he opened his business on
John Sims almost two years ago.


"The
overall
image is
changing,"
he said, a sort
of "rebrand-
ing-to let
people know
it's OK, that
it's safe to
come down Lavonne Gates
here."
Lavonne Gates and her hus-
band, Ken, have operated


Lavonne's Bayou Pub on John
Sims for 14 years and have twice
been negatively affected by DOT's
road widening. About 10 years
ago, they were forced to move the
business after DOT bought prop-
erty for the highway widening
project near Ace Hardware, where
the business was originally locat-
ed. They moved to their current
location, 528 E. John Sims, but the
road widening eventually took the
front porch and parking lot in front
of the pub. As many as 120 bikers


at one time during the summer
used to park their bikes in front of
the pub, she said. Gates said she
still gets a few motorcyclists to
visit but was forced to lower the
price of beer to help attract busi-
ness.
It doesn't take long for visitors
to figure out that No-Nee's Gift
Shop (590 W. John Sims) owner
Nora Chase was born in Ireland.
Several years ago she opened a
gift shop in Crestview, then moved
to a permanent indoor shop at a


popular
Pensacola
flea market
selling dolls,
inexpensive
jewelry, T-
shirts and L
other items.
When a
space opened
up next to Nora Chase
Tisa's restaurant, she and her hus-
band, Bill, a retired master ser-
geant, jumped at the chance to


work just minutes from their
home, avoiding the 138-mile
round trip every Saturday and
Sunday. "My problem is getting
people to know I'm here," said the
diminutive Cork County native.
"We're the mom-and-pops, the
backbone of a lot of things in
America," she said. "We need to
reach out and help one another,"
relying on word-of-mouth adver-
tising since opening in the former
PFIA Coffee shop building in
November.

Bob and Arline Mcllvaine
took their passion for sailing
and made it a profitable busi-
ness in Niceville more than 25
years ago when they opened
Splashdance, a water sports
store.
"I love sailing," said Bob,
owner of Splashdance. "I like
to teach youngsters to sail."
Bob spent 30 years working
for the Panama Canal
Company, starting as a file
clerk and working his way up
to a systems analyst, before
settling in Niceville.
During this time, he and his
wife made several trips
through Europe, where they


were exposed to windsurfing
and became intrigued by the
sport. The couple visited
countries such as Italy,
Czechoslovakia, France,
Austria and Sweden.
When they opened the
doors to Splashdance in
1983, Bob found a desire
among the locals to learn
about windsurfing.
"I started teaching the sport
to interested persons," Bob
said. "Soon we had a large
contingent of windsurfers
meeting at Gulf Islands for
weekend entertainment."
Bob taught lessons all day
every day in the early days of
Splashdance. He started out


with only 15 students and said
that it would take him about
30 minutes to teach an indi-
vidual how to windsurf. At one
time, Bob would charge stu-
dents $20 for lessons, which
would also include a board.
"Nowadays with $20, you
can't even look at a board,"
As the sport became more
mainstream, Splashdance
was forced to move in another
direction. In 1988, the kayak
became a new product
offered by the store.
At the same time, there
was a large number of canoes
in Okaloosa County. However,
in Bob's opinion, canoes,
though fun, are not suitable
for the bay conditions.
"Kayaking is an art form,
However, it didn't take long to
find that 'sit-on-top' kayaks
best suited the laid back
south."
Most of Splashdance's
windsurfer boards and kayaks
have been imported from
Italy. According to Bob, the
quality of the boards are bet-
ter in Europe, where they are
still made by hand.
As time has gone by and


The Topper weighs less than 95 pounds, is 11 feet long and suitable
for placing on top of the car. Splashdance is the exclusive distributor
for this exciting, simple sailboat. 00

Bob entered his golden years,
he felt that he could no longer
do the job of teaching proper-
ly. So he has decided to sell
one particular sailboat, called
the Topper, which has a very
large international following.
Although the boat weighs
less than 95 pounds, it's
about 11 feet long and suit-
able for placing on top of a
car. The Topper's rigged con-
struction and low mainte-
nance costs have made the
boat popular with sailing
schools.
"It is small enough for most
people to handle, It's simple
and it is fun."
Splashdance is the exclu-
sive distributor of the Topper
in Northwest Florida. It has
been in the same location,
207 Government Ave. (Hwy
85) in Niceville- five miles
north of Destin and Fort
Walton Beach-for the last 26
years.
Visitors can get a demo of
the boat; however, Our hours
vary. Calling 678-7517 or vis-
iting splashdance.com is
advised before making the
trip out to the store.

Put the 'Nice'


back in Niceville


Terry Porch
Niceville
Editor:
I've lived here for almost 10
years and I truly appreciate our
"city" of Niceville. However I
wonder what is happening
around here lately.
A short while ago the
Niceville triangle received a
new look which certainly does
nothing for our city. The
Christmas scenes which every-
one loved disappeared. A dried
up turf of weeds and a question-
able retention pond are what
everyone now sees year round.
There's no "Welcome to
Niceville" sign for the thou-
sands of tourists who pass
through on their way to Destin.
The traffic lights have an
incredible amount of rusting
paint chips all over them. Is
there a plan to re-do them?
And now there'll be no fire-
works on the 4th of July and any
family who wants to take their
families to see good fireworks
will have to go to Destin and
deal with their traffic and park-
ing problems. I wonder if the
numerous area's contractors, if
asked, would've signed on
board to donate to this show?
I will say again, I love our

Children's author deals


with kids' tough issues


By Stacie Morgan
Beacon Staff Writer
If you've ever played baseball
with the neighborhood gang in
lieu of studying for tomorrow's
big test in science, then you
might want to read about what
happened to Trenton when he
decided to play sick so he would-
n't have to go to school and take
that test.
The ensuing consequences of
his actions have a lot to do with
green scum virus and snarling
catfish lying in the mud just wait-
ing to sink their barbs into little
stray fish.
Niceville author Bonnie B.
Clark, an Okaloosa County resi-
dent for the past 32 years, pub-
lished her first children's story,
"Trenton Trout's Terrible Day," in
an effort to instill positive values
in the lives of children. The book
about Trenton seeks to make chil-
dren aware of the pitfalls of
telling a lie.
The mother of four now-
grown children raised her little
ones on her own. Her husband
died when her youngest child was
2 years old.
"I had four kids I was respon-
sible for," said 65-year-old Clark,
two of whom were twins. "I was
doing anything and everything
just to support us all," including a
night job working for a company
called Nanny Sitters, then in Fort
Walton Beach. During the day
she worked at Eglin Air Force
Base as a computer specialist.
While baby-sitting for Nanny

After Niceville children's author, Bonnie Clark, imagines her
fanciful children's stories, she sets about recording them on
her computer.


Sitters, Clark, who has lived in
Niceville since 2001, began to
make up stories to keep her
young charges entertained. Her
stories were always about ani-
mals "because children can really
relate to them and they have no
problem taking the good from
their adventures and applying
them to what's going on in their
own lives," she said.
Clark, who retired two years
ago and has since remarried,
began writing her animal tales
down when her own children,
now ages 32-36, encouraged her
creativity.
She has four additional chil-


dren's stories ready to send off to
her publisher, as well as a novel
in the works and a children's
series that takes place in the
imaginary world of Jungledom.
She has also begun taking art
classes so she can learn to illus-
trate her own stories.
Youth today have so many
issues they have to deal with, said
Clark, and they're "already being
negatively influenced in the
schools" with information that
may not be helpful. While it's
"important to listen to the opinions
of others, you have to be

Clark has no problem taking
her own advice and said her
Christian faith is a "big part" of
her life and something she tends to
include in her storytelling. She's
not afraid to tackle issues such as
divorce and abortion in her stories,
as well as promoting the desired
positive traits of honesty, respect,
kindness and taking care of not
only others but oneself.
With the exception of "Trenton
Trout's Terrible Day," Clark plans
to donate all the profits from her
books to the pro-life movement,


an act she said, that expresses her
desire to give to children, just as
her writing
does.

chase a copy

Joshua B. Duncan and
Taylor R. Smith have received
Air Force ROTC (Reserve
Officer Training Corps) college
scholarship offers to attend a
selected host college or univer-
sity.
The cadets were selected to
receive the scholarship certifi-
cate on the basis of comprehen-
sive tests, high school scholas-
tic achievement, and extra-cur-
ricular activities. The majority

sity tuition, provide textbook
allowance, and pay most labo-


ratory or incidental fees. In
addition, at least a $300 tax-free
monthly allowance is paid to
recipients during the academic
year. The estimated value of the
scholarship depends on the stu-
dent's choice of school and type
of scholarship offered.
Upon graduation from col-
lege and completion of the
ROTC program, the cadets will
receive a bachelor's degree and
a commission of 2nd lieutenant
in the Air Force.
Duncan is the son of Bruce
A. and Linda G. Duncan of
