Inscrutable thoughts


City's lawyer discounts reservist's lawsuit


By Mike Griffith
Beacon Correspondent
Valparaiso's city attorney has
described as "without merit" the
lawsuit of a former municipal
worker who has sued the city,
claiming she was fired because of
her status as a military reservist.


In a suit filed Jan. 21 in U.S.
District Court, Pensacola, Pamela
Ives alleged that after learning
about her membership in the Air
Force Reserve, the city denied her
promotion or pay raises, made
her perform extra duties without
extra pay, to include performing


the duties of the city administra-
tor on some occasions, and even-
tually dismissed her, claiming
that her position had been elimi-
nated.
Ives, a $13.90-an-hour plan-
ning assistant who worked for the
city from 2004 until her termina-


tion in October 2009, also con-
tends that the city changed her
work hours in a way that made it
more difficult for her to take part
in the physical fitness training
required by the Air Force.
Ives' suit contends that her fir-
ing and other treatment by the


city violated the Uniformed
Services' Employment and
Reemployment Rights Act, a law
intended to protect people who
serve in Reserve or National
Guard units from employment
discrimination or job loss as a
result of their service.


Since the Persian Gulf War in
1991 and the U.S. invasions of
Afghanistan and Iraq since 2001,
thousands of reservists and Guard
members have had to temporarily
leave their civilian jobs to per

a proposed increase in water and sewer rates

Under the plan, rejected by a 3-2 vote dur-

their utility bills climb by an average of about
$3 a month.
Similar increases in water and sewer bills

$154M in bridge bonds sold


By Mike Griffith
Beacon Correspondent
The Mid-Bay Bridge Authority
has reached final agreement to sell
$154.7 million in long-term con-
struction bonds at interest rates
between 7 and 7.25 percent. The
sale is expected to be completed
next week.
During a brief special meeting
held Monday at the MBBA office
in Bluewater Bay, members of the
bridge authority approved a final
resolution to sell $154,675,000 in
bonds to finance the construction
of Phases 2 and 3 of the Mid-Bay
Bridge Connector, a new road to
connect the toll plaza at the north
end of the Mid-Bay Bridge with
State Road 85 north of Niceville.
After selling the bonds at dis-
counts of $3.6 million and the
bond underwriter's discount of
$2.6 million, the MBBA will
receive $148,407,598 from the
sale, according to a bond pricing
sheet released by the bridge
authority. The discounts pushed
the effective yield on the tax-
exempt bonds to as much as 7.5
percent.
Earlier, the authority had
approved the issuance of as much
as $170 million in bonds.
The Mid-Bay Bridge is a toll
bridge spanning Choctawhatchee
Bay between the Niceville area
and Destin. The MBBA is a board
of directors appointed by the gov-
ernor of Florida to manage the
bridge and its connecting roads.
The new bridge connector road is
being built in three phases, linking
the toll plaza to State Road 20 and
to Range Road in the Bluewater
Bay-Seminole area, and then con-


tinuing to state roads 285 and 85
north of Niceville, along a route
that skirts the boundary of Eglin
Air Force Base, with much of the
road being built on land controlled
by the Air Force.
The new route, when complet-
ed, will include an automated toll-
collection point north of SR 20 in
addition to the existing toll plaza at
the bridge itself. The new toll col-
lection point will charge motorists
$2 if they pay cash and $1 if they
use Florida's automated Sunpass
transponder system. Bridge tolls
are currently $3 for cash payers
and $2 for Sunpass users.
During the Jan. 31 meeting,
MBBA Executive Director Jim
Vest said the new bonds were
priced and sold Jan. 25, subject to
approval at the Jan. 31 meeting,
and that some minor changes to
the ""IIIklllIlK" of the bond sale
took place over the intervening
weekend, due to anticipated high-
er interest rates in the current
volatile bond market. MBBA legal
counsel Mary Kraemer said the
changes were needed to "make it
work better."
Of the $154,675,000 in bonds
sold, said Vest, $92,725,000 will
actually pay for construction of
the connector road. The rest, he
said, will pay interest and other
charges associated with the bond
sale. Of the total bond sale,
$10,725,000 of the bonds sold will
pay off earlier bond borrowings,
according to bond documents.
The new bonds have a thirty-
year span and are scheduled to be
paid off in 2040.
The new bonds, plus pre-exist-
ing bonds that were issued to pay

for the bridge itself and other con-
struction since, total $268,729,000
in debt owed by the MBBA, all of
which will be paid back with tolls
from the bridge and connector
roads, Vest said.
Vest said that authority offi-
cials will sign closing documents
on the sale at 1 p.m. Feb. 9 at the
MBBA office. They will meet
there again the following day for
a phone conference with officials
from Goldman Sachs, the
MBBA's bond consulting firm, to
take any final steps needed to
complete the sale.
In other business, the MBBA
recently released its latest finan-
cial statement, as well as an annu-
al traffic and toll report showing
how traffic has flowed over the
bridge in recent years.


The reports indicated that toll
revenue increased in the last half
of 2010 for the first time after sev-
eral years of decline. The increase
was not due to increased usage of
the bridge, but to the 50 cent
bridge toll hike that went into
effect in June of 2010. A large
portion of total bridge traffic orig-
inates in Niceville, as it has in
years past, according to charts
included in the traffic report.
Traffic over the bridge showed
a continued decline in 2010,
according to the traffic report, but
is hoped to increase in the coming
tourist season, now that the
effects of last year's BP oil spill
have gone away and after several
years without a hurricane or
major tropical storm hitting local
beaches.

Littrell said an average water

about 6,000 gallons of water
each month and now pays about
$62 per month, would have seen
his rate go up by about $3 in each
of the next 5 years.
The rate and fee hikes, said
Littrell, are needed to fund
repairs and replacements of
aging pipes, lift stations and
other parts of the county water

replacing a large force main that

Thefts
A clerk at a Niceville conven-
ience store, 100 Redwood Ave.,
reported an intoxicated man tried
to pass a $20 bill to buy an 18-
pack of beer and a pack of ciga-


bridge at State Road 20 to the
Niceville-Valparaiso-Okaloosa
County regional sewage treat-
ment plant in Niceville. The
replacement will prevent a poten-
tially costly, or even dangerous,
failure of the aging force main,
and will also allow shutting
down an aging, and sometimes
smelly, lift station near the
Niceville post office.
Repairs and improvements to
the regional sewage plant are also
needed, as are similar projects
elsewhere in the county. The
sewage plant has been ordered by

rettes. Police questioned the man,
who told them a male acquain-
tance gave him the bill. The
acquaintance told police he got
the fake bill from a bank ATM a
few days before. The counterfeit
bill was seized by police and no
charges were filed against either
man.

A Niceville couple from the
400 block of Paradise Road
reported Jan. 20 that a man with a
foreign accent called their home
and offered to give them
$150,000 if they would send him
$399. The apparent scam artist
called a second time and the cou-
ple was able to give the police the
caller's phone number. No
money was lost by the intended
victims.

issued four prescriptions Jan. 18
was unable to tell police whether
the medications were stolen or

Renovation of the plant will

equipment items are now over 40
years old and in danger of failure

A Niceville resident reported

Littrell said the county
planned to issue about $10 mil-
lion worth of bonds to pay for the
projects, and to use the higher
rates and fees to pay back the
bonds, and will also help pay
back about $24 million in bonds
issued in 2004 to help pay for
replacing another old sewage
treatment plant with a new, state-
of-the-art plant now in operation
in Fort Walton Beach. The fate
of the planned borrowings was
unclear in the immediate after-
math of yesterday's rejection of
an immediate rate hike.

$220 cash was missing from it.
Damages to the store were esti-

-THE BAY BEACON


F-35
From page A-1
snags and cost overruns. Several
pre-production F-35s are being
flight tested at bases in California,
Maryland and Texas.
Col. Arthur Tomassetti, the
Marine vice commander of the
33rd Fighter Wing, said last week
that he expects the first 10 to 14 F-
35 fighters to arrive and begin fly-
ing from Eglin and surrounding
airfields by the end of this year,
with more to come, but arriving on
a still-undetermined schedule.
Eventually, Tomassetti said,
hundreds of U.S. Air Force, Navy
and Marine pilots and mainte-
nance troops, as well as those from
allied nations buying the stealth
fighter-bomber, will train at Eglin,
and participate in the economies,
schools and social activities of
local communities.
Regarding potential noise
problems for Valparaiso and other
communities near Eglin as the F-
35 fighters begin regular opera-
tions, Tomassetti said, "We
already have all the models,"
resulting from scientific forecasts
of the F-35's likely noise impact,
but the real impact of the aircraft
will not be determined until the
planes begin flying regularly.
Tomassetti spoke during a
"Military-Community
Sustainability Forum" held Jan. 19
at the Ramada Beach Resort, on
Okaloosa Island.
The forum, sponsored by the
Economic Development Council,
featured speakers and panels of
civilian and military leaders from
Northwest Florida and was attend-
ed by other military, business and
civic people from throughout the
region.
Among the speakers express-
ing optimism for the local econo-
my was Rick Harper, an econo-
mist from the University of West
Florida, who delivered the good
news that, "The U.S. economy has
expanded during each of the last
six quarters," indicating that the


recent economic recession has
probably transitioned into what he
called "a climb-out phase."
Harper said he expects the
nation to see about 3.5 percent
economic growth in the next cou-
ple of years, but that unemploy-
ment will still probably be about 8
percent in 2012, the year of the
next national
general elec-
tion.
I n
Northwest
Florida,
Harper said,
the outlook
is brighter
than for the
nation as a
whole , Col. Arthur
because of Tomassetti
the growth
of local military bases, the end of
last year's BP oil spill and an
expected resurgence of tourism.
The presence of Vision Airlines at
the Northwest Florida Regional
Airport will also give the local
economy a boost, as the new air-
line offers flights between
Northwest Florida and many
major cities, with a capacity of
about 5,800 seats each day-


about four times those offered at
the new airport near Panama City.
A panel of senior military offi-
cers from Eglin Air Force Base,
the Navy's Whiting Field, and
elsewhere also said they expect the
expanding military activity in the
area to be a boost to the local econ-
omy, and that incoming military
families will contribute to local
schools, civic organizations and
cultural activities.
The "military perspective
panel" at the forum included
Tomassetti, Col. Sal Nodjomian,
96th Air Base Wing Commander,
Col. Curt Van De Walle, 1st
Special Operations Wing, Navy
Capt. Pete Hall, Naval Air Station
Whiting Field, Lt. Col. Martin
Schmidt, 7th Special Forces
Group, and Col. Michael Brewer,
46th Test Wing.
Nodjomian told the audience
of local military, civic, and busi-
ness leaders that Northwest
Florida is one of only a few parts
of the United States that is actually
gaining military personnel and
facilities as a result of the Base
Realignment and Closure (BRAC)
process that has closed military
bases and reduced forces in most
other locations. The main reason


for this, he said, is the "unique,
incredible resources" available
here, including access to weapon-
firing ranges over the Gulf of
Mexico and over land on the huge
Eglin military reservation.
The military presence has had a
big impact on local communities,
said Nodjomian, and that is likely
to grow as the 33rd Fighter Wing
and Army 7th Special Forces
Group bring people, facilities and
equipment to Northwest Florida.
In addition, new housing to be
built at Eglin and Hurlburt Field
will bring construction jobs to the
area, while improving the quality
of life for military families.
Col. Curt Van De Walle, 1st
Special Operations Wing at
Hurlburt, spoke about the growing
importance of special operations
to American security, and about
new aircraft and activities of spe-
cial operations forces.


A jump-jet version of the
Lockheed Martin F-35
Lightning II assigned to
developmental flight tests
takes off from an air base in
Fort Worth, Texas, on its
first flight Thursday. The
Marine Corps jet will fly to
Naval Air Station Patuxent
River, Md., later this year,
where it will join four other
F-35Bs and one F-35C carri-
er variant aircraft already
undergoing testing. About
a dozen F-35s, the first
wave of an eventual 59, are
expected to arrive at Eglin
Air Force Base later this
year for a training wing.

Schmidt, of the Army 7th
Special Forces Group, said the
first 103 soldiers of his unit
already live in the area, along
with 242 dependents. By the end
of September, he expects 1,347
troops and about 2,247 family
members to move here, with
most living near Crestview but
with others choosing to live in a
"shotgun blast" pattern that will
spread out across Niceville, Fort
Walton Beach and other neigh-
boring communities.
Brewer, of the 46th Test Wing
at Eglin, said his unit will contin-
ue its mission of testing new mil-
itary weapon systems, but will
have to share Eglin ranges with
the training activities of the new
units. The greater range and
power of new weapons will also
add some strain to managing the
base's large but finite ranges.
Increased use of the ranges may


PROPOSED
From page A-1

end of Redwood Avenue, was
recently withdrawn and will not be
considered by the council Feb. 8,
said Niceville building inspector
Darcy Chaney, who reviews such
proposals before they go before
the city planning commission or
city council for approval.
The McElroy proposal was
withdrawn so that the property can
be rezoned from multi-family res-
idential, R-3, to Planned Unit
Development, PUD, according to
the building office and the owner
of the property, Mike Floyd. He
said single-family homes are still
planned for the parcel, but a
change in the zoning would be
more beneficial to the project.
New real estate development
activity in the Twin Cities area has
been sluggish since the bottom fell
out of the housing market three
years ago.


No one at Valparaiso Realty,
the developer of the remaining
proposals, returned calls from the
Beacon requesting information
about its plans.
Chaney, however, said that to
the best of his knowledge, the two
new housing developments will
most likely be upscale houses on
small-to-medium size lots, "simi-
lar to what we see in the Swift
Creek area."
Chaney said he thinks the new
proposals reflect an improving
economy and a return to gradual
growth in the local housing mar-
ket. Chaney said he was not aware
of any opposition to either the
Magnolia Woods or Shirk's
Bayou development, and that ear-
lier concerns about possible
drainage problems in the Shirk's
Bayou development are being
worked by the developer and are
likely to be resolved before final
approval is given by the city coun-
cil.
Regarding the Walmart site,
Chaney noted that the big new dis-


count store is now operational, and
plans are being made for addition-
al commercial enterprises on sur-
rounding parcels.
"I know for sure that a Chick-
fil-A is gong to be built to the right
of the entrance way to the Walmart
complex," Chaney said.
Groundbreaking for the fast-food
restaurant is expected in early
February.
There have also been inquiries,
said Chaney, about other parcels,
but he does not know what specif-
ic businesses are considering com-
ing to Niceville.
Chaney's secretary, Frankie
Revell, said such inquiries are
often made by large chain busi-
nesses, but are made through inter-
mediaries who seek information
about the local population, traffic
patterns and existing businesses,
and inform their clients about
whether a particular location is
favorable before making a final
decision or announcing to poten-
tial competitors that they plan to
build in a particular place.


ACCIDENT
From page A-1
A memorial service is sched-
uled for Saturday, at 3 p.m., in
Lions Park, Niceville.
The accident occurred near the
Dairy Queen restaurant, said
Niceville police Lt. David
Popwell. The drivers of two vehi-
cles had swerved to avoid collid-
ing with the pedestrian, he said,
but the driver of a third vehicle
was unable to avoid hitting Jones.
The driver of the car that hit Jones
was a 71-year-old Niceville
woman who apparently did not
see Jones in the dark and was
unable to avoid the accident.
Police have not yet released the
name of the driver. Popwell said


it is unlikely that any charges will
be filed in the case.
Jones was apparently trying to
get across the busy highway after
dark in order to see someone
about buying a new car. Jones'
daughter, Debora Hurst, lives in
Niceville, and said her father
resided Ohio, but was in Niceville
to visit her and some other local
relatives.
"He was like a kid in a candy
store," Hurst said, looking for-
ward to buying his new car and in
a hurry to meet the potential sell-
er.
Hurst said her father will be
remembered fondly by his five
children, 16 grandchildren, and 32
great-grandchildren.
"He was a wonderful man,"
she said, who liked to visit the


Niceville area during the winter,
getting away from the northern
cold and visiting Hurst, his grand-
son Adam Mooney, and other
grandchildren.
Jones was an active member of
a Masonic temple in Ohio, Hurst
said, and while in Florida, he
enjoyed playing cards with
friends. He was also a big fan and
supporter of the Northwest
Florida Falcons semi-pro football
team, often traveling with the
team and helping out as a volun-
teer. "The players and coaches all
knew him, and called him
Grandpa," Hurst said.
Jones' remains were cremated
soon after the accident, said Hurst,
and his ashes will be returned to
Ohio for a memorial service to be
held sometime in March.

occasionally curtail some recre-
ational activity like hunting and
camping on the Eglin ranges, he
said, but the base will continue
striving to be "a partner for com-
patible growth" with neighbor-
ing civilian communities.
Representatives of the county
commissions of Okaloosa, Santa
Rosa and Walton Counties also
spoke. Bill Roberts, of
Okaloosa, said Okaloosa is
working to help build the infra-
structure needed to support the
growing military presence by
building new water and sewer
facilities and undergoing road
projects with state and federal
help.
Sara Comander, of Walton
County, said her county, with a
smaller population and fewer
military personnel, is emphasiz-
ing the recreation areas and
opportunities it offers people
who come to Northwest Florida.
She said the Air Force space sur-
veillance station in her county is
important to both the county and
the nation as a whole.
Don Salter, of Santa Rosa
County, said his county is work-
ing with the Navy to establish
buffer areas around military air-
fields to prevent encroachment
on military activities. He said the
key to maintaining a continuous
military presence in the region is
to "protect the mission" in every
way possible.
All three commissioners said
it is important for local business
and political leaders to "get the
ear" of new Florida governor
Rick Scott, to obtain state fund-
ing for projects and programs to
improve local infrastructure in
support of military missions.

Rhino Shield


Never paint your home again


Advertising Feature
With spring swiftly approaching,
and tax season just ahead, home
improvements are in the forefront
of every homeowner's mind. If
repainting or siding your business
or home is an option, Rhino Shield,
ceramic coating 8 to 10 times thick-
er than paint, is an economical,
environmentally friendly, and long-
lasting alternative to the traditional
exterior coverings. It can cover
wood, stucco, log homes, any type
of exterior and still maintain the
exterior's texture and design. This
made-in-the-USA product comes
in thousands of colors that can also
be changed if you change your
mind down the road.
Rhino Shield Ceramic Coating
is a waterproof, durable, mainte-
nance-free exterior wall coating.
"It is the most salt-tolerant coat-
ing on the market, which is vital to
homes along the Gulf Coast," said
Mike Redmond, owner of Rhino
Shield Gulf South in Destin. "We
address the issues where paint
and siding fail."
Rhino Shield is offered all
across the nation and has proven
itself not only against the harsh salt
air, but can even save a residence
from fire. It is a breathable sub-
stance, so the vapors that occur in
a home or residence can escape.
However, the best part is the ener-


gy-saving value that Rhino Shield
can offer. It is heat-resistant; the
sun's rays are reflected by the
microscopic ceramic balls within,
which can save a homeowner as
much as 30 percent on the energy
bill. And all of this is backed by a
25-year warranty.
Rhino Shield has been featured
on popular television shows, such
as "This Old House" and "Curb
Appeal" on Home and Garden
Television. A curious consumer can
also YouTube this product and find
numerous videos praising how well
Rhino Shield has withstood the test
of Mother Nature and time.
It has been tested by BASF one
of the most respected chemical
companies in the world, and its
findings were that Rhino Shield
excels at flexibility, is tear-resistant
and has tensile strength, breatha-
bility and viscosity. Additionally,
BASF performed an accelerated
aging test and found no signs of
aging.
Rhino Shield has infused tiny
3M ceramic molecules or micros-
pheres, which actually adhere to
the walls of your home and
become bonded to them. This
insulates your home against heat
or cold, gives it UV protection
against the sun and has sound-
proofing benefits. And it's guaran-
teed to not fleck or fade.

Product and service quality is of
utmost importance to Rhino Shield
and owner Mike Redmond. The
Rhino Shield team will begin by
inspecting the residence for cracks
and abnormalities in the exterior.
They will then clean and wash
down the exterior of the building.
Once all the debris is washed
away, the crew will patch and
repair any damaged areas. Then
they sand and scrape the old paint
and adhesives off the building.
Next, they caulk open cracks and
around windows and doors. They
then mask the building, prime it
and finally add the paint. They give
a final inspection to ensure the
quality of the product and service

Niceville author, rescue swimmer, visit schools

Book tells the tale of those e . .-

who risk lives to save others


By Kenneth Books
Managing Editor
A Coast Guard Reserve
commander brought a book she
wrote highlighting the service's
rescue swimmers, who were
popularized in the 2006 Kevin
Costner movie "The Guardian,"
to three local schools this week.
Martha J. LaGuardia-Kotite,
who was born in Destin and
now lives in Niceville, along
with rescue swimmer Mario
Vittone, who is profiled in the
book, visited Ruckel Middle
School and Choice and
Niceville high schools this
week, which was Literacy
Week, to talk about reading and
to introduce one of the heroes
of her book, "So Others May
Live."
"What was important about


Literacy Week was I partnered
with one of the heroes of the
book, Mario Vittone, rescue
swimmer, who is now a warrant
officer," LaGuardia-Kotite said.
"He's the hero of chapter 9. It
was really a wonderful two
days of visiting three schools
where we could share with
young adults about writing."
One of the lessons she tried
to get across was, "Writing is
all about rewriting," she said.
"We also talked about careers
and the Coast Guard. We met a
couple of girls who aspire to be
rescue swimmers."
She said the two girls were
from Ruckel Middle School
and Niceville High School.
Since the rescue swimmer pro-
gram began in 1984 in
Pensacola, there have been only

LaGuardia-Kotite served 10

While serving as a Coast
Guard public affairs officer in
Seattle, LaGuardia-Kotite came
across the story of rescue
swimmer Tristan Heaton, who
was the inspiration for the
book.
"I couldn't believe we had
Coast Guard men and women
putting their lives on the line
like he did for complete
strangers," she said.
Visiting the local schools
was a treat for LaGuardia-
Kotite.
"It was a really rewarding
experience to be able to inspire
these future leaders and young
adults to think about other
career options and encourage
them to keep trying and not
give up," she said, "because
writing is hard."
