By Del Lessard Beacon Staff Writer A Niceville man was arrested on charges of arson and domestic violence after he allegedly poured a can of gasoline inside his girlfriend's house and set it afire, destroying it, according to police. Andrew Kyle Denton, 31, of 109 Cadillac Ave., Niceville, was arrested by Niceville police Jan. 3 on charges of arson and domestic violence battery. Firefighters received an alarm at 11:33 p.m. Jan. 3 and were on the scene four minutes later at 109 Cadillac to find the By Mike Griffith Beacon Correspondent The union representing Okaloosa County public schoolteachers says it will continue to fight a school board decision to cancel scheduled pay raises this year. The president of the Okaloosa County Education Association (OCEA), said the union had filed a labor grievance that could result in an arbitrator ruling on the dispute as early as March. But a school district lawyer said there is no appeal from the school boards final ruling last week freezing most teachers pay for the 2011-12 academic year. Emotions ran high during a public hearing at Niceville High School last week, during which members of the Okaloosa County School Board heard presentations for and against step pay raises for teachers. The school board reaffirmed its earlier decision to not grant previously routine 3-percent By Del Lessard Beacon Staff Writer The city of Valparaiso will sponsor a televised political forum Jan. 19 for candidates for city commission. The forum will allow citizens to submit questions to candidates, although not directly. Announcement of the forum was made at a Valparaiso City Commission meeting Monday. In other business, the commission appointed two men to the city planning commission and gave tentative approval to an agreement to support a new airport police department being formed by Okaloosa County. Five candidates are running for two seats on the Valparaiso City Commission. The are: Kay Hamilton, Joe Morgan, Keith Randall Roberts, incumbent Tom Miller and incumbent Neal Shermer. The election will be Jan. 31, with early Candice Potter surveys her arson-damaged home on Cadillac Avenue, Niceville, with Assistant Fire Chief Tony Lohrman the morning after a gasoline-fed blaze raced through the structure Jan. 3.

grades of "B" report cards and one school, Emerald Coast Career Institute (North) a small, new alternative school for at-risk students, received a failing grade of F. "Okaloosa County ranked in the top five districts in the state of Florida for the highest percent of As," said Okaloosa County Schools Superintendent Alexis Tibbetts. "We are very proud to have five A and two B high schools." High school grades are calculated differently than elementary and middle schools, which received their grades last summer, Tibbetts said. Elementary and middle school grades are based entirely on Florida Comprehensive Assessment Tests (FCAT) performance and learning gains, as measured by the tests. High school grades are calculated 50 percent on FCAT and 50 percent non-FCAT components that include; graduation rate, accelerated course work (AP, IB, AICE, dual enrollment), industry certification, postsecondary readiness (based on ACT, SAT, and PERT exams), and at-risk graduation rate. The Okaloosa graduation rate for the 2010-2011 school year was 90.7 percent, compared with a state average of 81.2 percent. Okaloosa's dropout rate is the lowest in the state at 0.2 percent, versus a state rate 1.9 percent. Okaloosa earned the highest high school reading FCAT passing rate in Florida, at 75 percent (state average: 60 percent), according to Tibbetts. The Okaloosa district math 10th grade pass rate was an astonishing 91 percent, she added. Okaloosa students also outperformed the state on the new algebra 1 end-ofcourse exam, earning the highest average scale score of 55 (state average: 49). "More Okaloosa County high school students are proficient in math and reading than any other school district, keeping us the best in Florida," said Tibbetts. "Having our students collegeand career-ready can be attributed to our outstanding teachers and administrative staff and the support of our parents and community." But Tibbetts added, "Of concern to our district is the failing school grade received by ECCI (North)." Emerald Coast Career Institute, which is operated by the school district in Crestview, has 108 students in grades 4-12. Under state rules, the F received by ECCI appears to preclude the school district from any move to start the 2012-13 academic year prior to two weeks before Labor Day, according to Steve McLaughlin, a district administrator. The scores show that Niceville High School earned the top ranking in all areas when compared to the Okaloosa School Districts other five traditional high schools, NHS officials said in a statement. In mathematics, 94 percent of NHS students tested scored at Level 3 or higher. (A student who scores at a Level 3 or higher is considered proficient in that subject area.) In reading, 74 percent of students scored at Level 3 or higher. Science scores show that 68 percent of NHS students scored at Level 3 or higher. In writing, 84 percent of students scored at Level 3 or higher. "Once again the school grade scores prove that NHS provides a quality education for all students in our community," said Becca Childress, NHS math teacher. NHS officials said that NHS is ranked 21st in Florida in the state point system used to arrive at school grades (1,370 total out of a possible 1,600). However, if all schools which scored higher than NHS and have an application process of some kind for entrance were removed from the list, NHS would rank second. The current enrollment at NHS is 1,872, of which 99 percent of all 9th, 10th and 11th graders were tested. NHS has no application or admissions requirements, other than an attendance zone, for entry. "Being ranked number two in Florida among schools that admit any and all students is exceptional," said Patricia Mixon, NHS language arts teacher. "I also feel our outstanding scores are a direct result of our rigorous curriculum." The Collegiate High School at Northwest Florida State College, a public charter school not operated by the school district, is the top scoring "A" high school in the state of Florida for the third time in the school's 11-year history, according to a statement from school officials. Collegiate High, which is a charter school within the Okaloosa County School District, received 1,511 of 1,600 possible points to place first in the state, according to the school. "We're thrilled that the fine work of our students and teachers is so evident by our top placement again," said Anthony Boyer, Collegiate principal. At Collegiate, students may earn their two-year associate of arts college degree simultaneously with their high school diploma. As lawmakers convene, Rep. Gaetz sizes up issuesBy Del Lessard Beacon Staff Writer The three top issues for the just-convened 2012 Florida Legislature are the cash-strapped state budget, legislative reapportionment and a bill to expand gambling, said District 4 Representative Matt Gaetz, R., Fort Walton Beach. Rep. Gaetz, whose district includes the Twin Cities of Niceville and Valparaiso, as well as Bluewater Bay, said legislators have a "$1.7 billion hole to fill" because of lower revenue projections for 2012. The legislature on Tuesday began its annual 60-day regular session in Tallahassee. Gaetz said the House will eye spending cuts to the state's health care system. However those cuts will have to be "fully vetted," he said, so that patients still get the care they need but in a less costly manner. Without cuts in health care, legislators will have to look for cuts in the state's transportation services, economic development or other areas, he said. House legislators will approach Gov. Rick Scott's call for education to receive an extra $1 billion in spending this year with a "can-do" attitude, Gaetz said, although it is far from certain which programs can be cut to provide the requested amount. Because the legislature is meeting two months earlier than usual, Gaetz said he is optimistic that Florida's slowly improving economy may result in improved revenue forecast later in the year. That would allow legislators to restore some of the services they may be forced to cut during this year's early session. The redistricting process will add an extra layer of tensions that could roll over onto other issues, said Gaetz. Proposed redistricting bills in the House would cut Gaetz's District 4 from covering portions of Okaloosa and southern Santa Rosa, to the district being confined to just portions of one county, Okaloosa County south of I-10, plus Crestview. That's could be a minus, he said, giving him a less broad based reference on issues. Bills to expand casino gambling in the Miami Beach area are expected, if passed, to increase pressure to allow slot machines and perhaps table games at existing gambling venues, such as dog tracks in Pensacola and Ebro, Gaetz said. Legislators from Northwest Florida are united in their opposition to the expansion of gambling, he said, but they may be outnumbered. The gambling issue, Gaetz said, has split legislators along geographic, rather than party lines. One example, he said is that Orlando area legislators generally oppose gambling because of its possible effect on family entertainment venues in their areas, while the Miami area has more support for gambling. Gaetz said he will also work on his "pet project," a bill to repeal a state mandate that gasoline contain up to 10 percent ethanol. He said many of his constituents have complained that the additive causes problems in boat motors, in small-engine machines and results in reduced miles per gallon in automobiles. Gaetz said people have also asked why they are still paying a toll to cross the Mid-Bay Bridge. The governor's efficiency in government task force recently recommended that the Mid-Bay Bridge Authority (MBBA) be consolidated under the Florida Turnpike Enterprise, Gaetz said, a move he calls as a "pro-consumer." By using the state's higher bond rating the MBBA could have saved $40 million in borrowing costs, he said. However, he said much of the House leadership is from the Orlando area, and they are not warm to the idea of consolidating regional toll authorities, including those in Orlando and Tampa. Gaetz said another major goal for legislators from Northwest Florida this year is to repeal that section of statute that would mandate additional regulation and inspections of septic tanks. Action taken by the delegation last year succeeded in delaying action, he said.

By Mike Griffith Beacon Correspondent Monday's monthly meeting of the East Niceville Fire Commission lasted only 15 minutes, allowing fire commissioners and other attendees to get home in time for the kickoff of the national college football championship between the University of Alabama and Louisiana State University. During the brief meeting, which began at 7 p.m. Monday, fire commission chairman Mike Marcolongo informed fellow commissioners that a recent change from one health insurance company to another by the fire district has gone smoothly. Fire Chief Michael Wright said that during 2011, the East Niceville Fire Department responded to 410 calls for help, most of which were medical emergencies of various kinds. He said that the first days of 2012 had been busy. As of Monday, every firefighter shift had responded to at least one call, he said. The chief also said that a new overhead door has been installed on the easternmost vehicle bay at the fire station, ending a monthslong problem with the previous door, which used to get stuck in a partly open position, allowing water, wind and high or low temperatures to enter the fire station, raising air conditioning costs and potentially exposing the station to damage from severe weather. Wright thanked fire commissioners and firefighters who helped obtain and install the new door. It is a quality product and we got it at a good price, he said. There was no other business discussed during the meeting. The next fire commission meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. Feb. 13 at the East Niceville firehouse on 27th Street. Mondays brief meeting ended at 7:15, 15 minutes before kickoff. As the meeting was adjourned, one fire commissioner was heard to exclaim a prophetic, Roll Tide! Alabama won, 21-0.

By Del Lessard Beacon Staff Writer Niceville's second arson fire since Jan. 1 destroyed public bathrooms at the city's softball complex late Thursday. Firefighters received the alarm at 11:32 p.m. Jan. 5. They arrived five minutes later to find heavy fire showing from the roof of a bathroom and storage building on Campbell Drive, less than a quarter mile from the city firehouse and police headquarters, said Niceville Fire Chief Tommy Mayville. The fire was extinguished in less than 20 minutes, Mayville said. After dousing the flames firefighters had to pull down parts of the wall in order to reach wooden roofing members that were smoldering under the metal roof. The concrete block building was declared a total loss, with an estimated value of $65,000. "It was definitely arson," said Mayville. He said investigators with the State Fire Marshal's Office determined that the blaze originated in the women's bathroom and that an unspecified accelerant in a spray can was believed to be involved. He said vagrants may have started the fire inside the bathrooms, although there were no suspects as of Tuesday morning. Responding to the blaze were firefighters from the Niceville, East Niceville, Eglin and North Bay fire departments. The now-destroyed concrete building was insured, according to Jim Baughman, the city's recreation chief and city officials were already discussing details with their insurer. The doors to the bathrooms had been left unlocked said Baughman because in the past vandals had broken down the doors when they had been locked, and because there are generally a lot of people in the vicinity. Baughman said other city park bathrooms, such as the new bathroom building at Lions Park and the facilities at Turkey Creek park are kept locked after hours. Niceville firefighters responded to another arson fire Jan. 3 in which a single-family home on Cadillac Avenue was destroyed and a suspect arrested and charged with setting the fire (story, Page A-1).Night arson fire destroys bathroomsDoors were not locked after hours A fire that destroyed public bathrooms at the Niceville softball complex Jan. 5 was deliberately set, according to authorities.

Mayor Bruce Arnold said that the city has contacted the candidates and offered to stage a forum Jan. 19 at 7 p.m. in the city commission chambers. The forum will be taped by the city's cable television personnel and broadcast three times a day the week before the election, Jan. 23-30, at 8 a.m., 1 p.m. and 6 p.m., the mayor said. It will not be broadcast live. Terry Fedonczak of Valparaiso Realty has agreed to act as moderator of the forum, the mayor said. The moderator will ask all questions of the candidates, Arnold said, with each candidate getting a different question. Each candidate will also be given a couple of minutes to recap his position, he said. Although members of the public may attend the event, they won't be allowed to ask questions directly, the mayor said. Instead, Valparaiso residents were asked this month, in a mailout of the city's newsletter, to submit general written questions to ask the candidates. The moderator will select the final questions. In other business at the city commission meeting Monday: Commissioners appointed two city residents to be members of the city's Planning Commission, Clark "Tom" Browning and John Miller. Their terms expire Sept. 30, 2014. Browning is a military contractor, a network support engineer. Miller is a self-employed building contractor. Commissioners also voted 3-0 to approve a new Interlocal Mutual Aid Agreement that would allow Valparaiso police officers to provide law enforcement services for the county's new airport police department. In December Greg Donovan, Okaloosa County's airports director, asked police chiefs in Valparaiso, Niceville, Fort Walton Beach, Crestview and Shalimar to sign a mutual aid agreement that would allow city police officers to help the start-up airport police department by sending officers for scheduled shifts at the airport between Feb. 1 until May. The airport would pay the city's $40 an hour for each officer, while the city's would shoulder any liability and other expenses such as retirement and workmen's compensation. Donovan said the airport should have its own officers hired and trained by May. For the past several years the Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office has been providing law enforcement services at the airport with 11 deputies. However, the county commission last year agreed to Donovan's request to form its own airport police department at a lower cost. The sheriff's office agreed to honor its previous contract to provide those services after the old agreement expired Oct. 1. The extension was until Feb. 1. Police Chief Joe Hart told commissioners that attorneys for the county and attorneys for Okaloosa County Sheriff Larry Ashley had differing legal opinions about the legality of city police officers providing law enforcement services outside their own city jurisdictions. Because the start-up airport police was in need of manning, Hart recommended the agreement be approved with the caveat that the county's attorneys support the move. Separately, the city commission's approval became moot late Monday when the county and sheriff's office agreed that sheriff's deputies, rather than city police officers, would provide the interim manning support at the airport beyond Feb. 1 and until the county can complete hiring its own personnel.

annual step raises to most teachers this year. Such increases would cost at least $1.2 million a year, according to the district. The step raises are usually granted to teachers based on their time in service, but are not included in this years pay package because, according to school administrators, the school district does not have the funds for such raises. The OCEA, a branch of the Florida Education Association and National Education Association that represents 1,815 Okaloosa teachers, disagreed, resulting in an impasse in recent negotiations, and to the quasi-judicial public hearing in Niceville Jan. 4, in which elected school board members heard from both sides before voting unanimously against granting step pay increases this year. The pay of Okaloosa teachers, fifth highest statewide, is mainly based on a combination of time in service and the level of each teachers degree attainment. During the hearing at Niceville High, which was attended by many teachers, the position of the school district administration was presented by Mike Mattimore, a labor-relations lawyer for the district. Mattimore showed budget figures indicating that the school district has lost revenue during the last several years from local property taxes, state aid to education, and federal economic stimulus programs, while costs for such things as utilities, insurance, and school operations have steadily increased. He said the district cannot sustain the recurring costs of the proposed step pay hikes. Also presented were figures showing that Okaloosa teachers last year were the fifth highestpaid among Floridas 67 school districts. The figures showed the average Okaloosa teacher was paid $51,082 for about nine months work, behind only the high-cost counties of Monroe, Sarasota, Collier and Dade. If pay were raised further, Mattimore said, it would probably force the district to take other, more-painful cost-cutting measures such as across-the-board pay cuts, or furloughs or layoffs of some teachers. He said the contract between the district and the union permits the district to move teachers up to higher pay steps based on time in service, but without actually adding to their pay at this time. OCEA Executive Director Greg Butler spoke next, presenting the unions position, with a different interpretation of the numbers. He said the school district has routinely budgeted more money for teacher pay than it has actually spent each year, and has about $14 million available to cover teacher pay hikes. He said that the contract between the teachers union and the school district mandates step pay increases, and that the district is obligated to live up to the labor contract. OCEA President Karen Peek also spoke, saying she is proud to represent Okaloosa teachers, whose hard work has made the Okaloosa district the best in Florida year after year, and who deserve to be rewarded for their excellent performance. Peek said she knew the district faces a tough financial situation, but it is time to get creative, to plan and work together to find the money needed for the step increases. Peek said the union and its members have done their best to help the district cut costs by using more associate rather than regular teachers, using cheaper computers, and other measures. Did you forget the sacrifices we made? she asked. Peek also reminded the school board that at a previous meeting she had promised them that if the time came to withhold pay raises for teachers, she and other OCEA members would understand. But, she said, This is not the time, and we do not understand! and displayed a briefing slide to emphasize her statement. OCEA member and Destin Middle school teacher Patrick Cole gave an emotional speech, during which he disputed what he said is a stereotype of lazy, greedy teachers, and asked his fellow teachers to raise their hands if they had given more than ten hours a week of unpaid time to help their students, and again if they had spent $200 or more of their own money to buy supplies for their classrooms. Most raised their hands. The hands dropped, however, when Cole asked how many had become teachers in order to get rich. Rita Scallan, the school districts chief financial officer, also spoke, answering questions from school board members. She said that although some budget figures may have given the impression of extra money budgeted for teacher pay or reserve funds available for pay hikes, that in fact most such money is restricted to specific purposes such as buying equipment or for special educational programs, and cannot be diverted for salaries. Scallan also said much of the reserve funds are gradually being depleted as revenue has decreased, and could not support recurring expenses like salary hikes. The audience at the hearing appeared to consist mostly of Okaloosa teachers, many of whom wore red shirts, scarves, or other red apparel in what some said was a visual display of solidarity with their union. The crowd stood to clap and cheer several times during the speeches by Butler, Peek, and Cole. Following the presentations, the school board put the proposed step pay hikes to a vote, deciding unanimously against the increases, then left the auditorium without further comment. After the meeting, many union members expressed anger at the school board for not staying longer or allowing more public discussion before voting. Peek told the Beacon, This is not over. She said the OCEA has filed a contract grievance, which will probably be aired during a binding arbitration proceeding in March. OCEA filed the grievance Sept. 8, before the school district declared negotiations at an impasse, according to Greg Butler, the unions executive director. The union requested the American Arbitration Association to arbitrate the grievance, which is as follows: Teachers did not receive a step pay increase as stated in the collective bargaining agreement. The nature of the grievance is listed by OCEA in its application as a contract interpretation. The union is seeking to receive the step pay increase, including retroactive pay to July 1. Butler said an arbitration hearing in Okaloosa County is set for March 20. Since each side typically is asked to submit post hearing briefs to the arbitrator within 30 days, and with the arbitrator getting 30 days to decide the case, it could be mid-May before a decision is reached, he said. Mattimore, the school districts attorney, said there is no way that an arbitrator can reverse what the school board decided last week. He said that state law gives the board the final say on pay issues. Okaloosa County Schools Superintendent Alexis Tibbetts, reached for comment later, said, I feel just sick that the union and administration have been unable to resolve their differences. This is very difficult for me, said Tibbetts, who was an Okaloosa teacher and principal herself before being elected superintendent. Ive grown up with many of the teachers who were at the hearing, she said, and is friends with most of them. Despite her feelings, said Tibbetts, she supports the school boards decision, and agrees that there is not enough money for pay hikes. There is not really $14 million available for pay increases as claimed by OCEA director Greg Butler during the hearing, she said. Of the supposed $14 million of available money in the budget, said Tibbetts, about $9 million is required by law to be kept in reserve for such contingencies as hurricanes, and the other $5 million is non-recurring money from such sources as federal economic stimulus programs which are now ended. Tibbetts said the real solution to the Okaloosa School Districts teacher pay problem would be for the Florida Legislature to fund public education at a level higher than 47th out of 50 states in the nation.

Figures are for nine-month employees. An Okaloosa County Education Association slide at the hearing proposed possible uses for what the union described as a $14 million surplus in the school district's budget this year. The district said the money is earmarked for other purposes. A union slide highlighted the frustration of many teachers with a school board decision to freeze pay for the year.

The specific hormone is called Leptin. It is the hormone that tells your body to stop eating and to burn fat. If your Leptin is out of balance, despite your best efforts, you will not be able to lose weight. You know what I m talking about. You try the grapefruit diet. You try the Zone diet. You try the South Beach Diet and you still can t lose weight or keep it off. You work out on the treadmill. Still, you hit a wall. That s called weight loss resistance. With this imbalance, you will burn sugar for energy, not fat. You won t be able to lose weight and you ll have uncontrollable cravings for sugar or bread. Remember, fat doesn t make you fat, it s the inability to burn fat that leads to weight gain. If you have a Leptin problem, you will not be able to lose weight until that is corrected. Here s what happens when it s corrected: 1. Jerry: Lost 35+ pounds in 3 months and has kept it off for a year. Off of his Cholesterol, Diabetes and Blood Pressure medication! Began competing in triathlons at age 60. 2. Lee: Lost 22 lbs in 8 weeks. Off of his medications! 3. Linda: Lost 25+ pounds. Off of medication she had been on for years due to severe menstrual pain and her Restless Leg Syndrome is gone! 4. Frank: Lost 30+ pounds. Off of 3 medications. 5. Adam: Asthma free.

The Collegiate High School at Northwest Florida State College is the top scoring "A" high school in Florida for the third time in the school's 11year history. The innovative charter school of the Okaloosa County School District received 1,511 of 1,600 possible points to place first in the state among 410 high schools graded by the Florida Department of Education. Collegiate High has consistently scored in the top one-half of 1 percent in the Florida Accountability System, previously earning recognition as the top scoring high school in the state in 2009-10 and 2002-03. "Obviously, we're thrilled that the fine work of our students and teachers is so evident by our top placement again," noted Anthony Boyer, principal. The Florida Department of Education calculates points based on multiple criteria relative to FCAT performance and whole school performance including graduation rate, learning gains, postsecondary readiness in reading and math and at-risk student graduation rate. Application for admission to the school is in progress for the 2012-13 academic year. The school will hold information sessions for prospective new students Jan. 12 at 5:30 p.m. at the Crestview Public library Collegiate High received recognition as a U.S. Department of Education Blue Ribbon School in 2006. Boyer said reading is especially emphasized at the school with a "culture of reading" that integrates reading in unique ways such as a Guest Reader program, national level visiting authors and more. The school was chartered in 2000 with an enrollment of 125 students and has had more than 782 graduates in the 11 years since it opened. The current enrollment is 285 students in 10th, 11th and 12th grades. At Collegiate, every student Whos NewsE-mail items to info@baybeacon.com.

But what do you do with that old cell phone? Shelter House, the domestic violence center serving Okaloosa and Walton counties, is collecting your unwanted cell phones to be used for emergency phones for victims of domestic violence. "Leaving an abusive relationship can be a very dangerous time," said Michelle Sperzel, executive director of Shelter House. "By providing emergency phones to women who may be leaving their homes with nothing more than the clothes on their backs, we are improving their chances for survival." Broken phones are also accepted and forwarded to a recycling facility with proceeds returning to Shelter House for services such as a 24-hour crisis hotline, counseling, advocacy, outreach, prevention education and confidential shelter. Shelter House cell phone drop boxes can be found throughout the community at the following locations: Airport Road Church of Christ in Crestview; Beach Community Bank branches; Christ the King Episcopal Church in Santa Rosa Beach; Destin Church of Christ; Fort Walton Beach Church of Christ; Gentle Breeze Dentistry in Santa Rosa Beach; Northwest Florida State College, Niceville Campus; Troy University campuses; and Whitney Bank branches.

They work hard enough, and education is important for the new generation. Ill go with giving the teachers a raise. In these economic times, they deserve an increase in pay. Their jobs are among the most important we have teaching our children. No. I do not believe Okaloosa public school teachers should receive a raise. However, the money that was budgeted for their salaries should be honored to pay them as stated in their contract which is not a raise. They should receive raises if its in their contract. Teachers should get a raise. The teachers I know work hard, and often use their own money to buy things for their classrooms.
