By Mike Griffith Beacon Correspondent The Valparaiso City Commission held an organizational meeting March 19. It was the first by Valparaisos new mayor and city commission, following a municipal election March 13 that resulted in the turnover of two commission seats and the mayoralty. During the meeting, new Mayor Brent Smith set out the duties of each commissioner, including new commission members Edward Crosby and Jay Denney, confirming their readiness to fulfill the duties, as follows. Beacon Staff A Niceville charity is refashioning an old schoolhouse into a temporary home for single mothers and their young children. The aim is to take in young moms who may be virtually homeless, perhaps disowned by their families, left by the man in their lives, or evicted by landlord or friends. But the church-based group behind the project will couple the housing with an even more-ambitious effortto spark a turnaround in the mothers lives, teaching them everyday skills and responsibilities that they may never have learned. After nine months of residence, employment, training and Christian love, it is hoped the women will graduate from the group home, betterequipped to stand on their own. The nonprofit organization Crisis Aid for Littles and Moms (CALM) hopes the venture will help conquer generational povertythe failure of successive generations to master the everyday skills needed to succeed as a family, in school, and in the workplace, according to Grace Nuffer, president. In many cases, such skills are T T h h e eB B a a y y B B e e a a c c o o n n info@baybeacon.com The voice of Niceville, Bluewater Bay and Valparaiso since 1992 (850) 678-1080 Police Blotter, page A-3 A former church school in Niceville, is undergoing a transformation into a planned temporary home for single mothers and their children.

Beacon photos by Mike GriffithThe Northwest Florida State College mens basketball team and womens basketball team both made it to the NJCAA Division 1 national quarterfinals last week. The mens team fell to Southern Idaho, 107-93, in a playoff Thursday in Hutchinson, Kan. (pictured). The women s season also ended Thursday, in Lubbock, Texas, with a 55-52 loss at the hands of Tallahassee, which went on to win the national crown. Photo by Travis Morisse By Mike Griffith Beacon Correspondent Members of the Bluewater Bay Municipal Services Benefit Unit (MSBU) earlier this month discussed plans for next years budget and heard a call to better serve residents of a condominium community on the periphery of Bluewater Bay. Also discussed were possible upgrades of aging street signs. The MSBU is a unit of Okaloosa County government established to maintain streetlights, landscaping, and other care and maintenance of common areas throughout the unincorporated Bluewater Bay community. The MSBU is governed by an elected board of five volunteers, and is funded by an annual assessment on each residential property unit and on each 1,000-square-foot unit of commercial property within Bluewater Bay. The annual assessment is $69 per unit, and may not be increased by more than 5 percent a year. No specific figures for the coming years budget were discussed at meetings held March 13, although members did talk about some items that might be included in the spending plan for the fiscal year that will begin Oct. 1. MSBU board member Judy Griffin said the new budget should include a line item for funding irrigation water, which is used to support plantings along main roadways and other areas maintained by the MSBU. Board member Felix Beukenkamp said the budget should also include money to improve street-identification signs throughout Bluewater Bay. Griffin agreed, saying that many street signs are growing old and are in need of maintenance or replacement. Board members did not reach a consensus on whether all such signs should be replaced during the From left: Commissioner Ed Crosby, Mayor Brent Smith and Commissioner Jay Denney, newly elected Valparaiso officials.Beacon photo by Chrissie Kirila Fundraiser April 7, A-2.

The building, a former church school at Redwood Avenue and 27th Street, Niceville, was purchased in December on CALMs behalf by a benefactor who insisted on anonymity. The 0.86-acre property also is the site of a former church, which CALM organizers hope one day to make into a rental venue for community events, earning money to help support the group home. The 2,700-square-foot school building, 66 years old, is being extensively renovated through the generosity of several contractors. Plans are to open CALM House as a group home this spring, according to Nuffer. A big fundraising event is planned in Valparaiso on April 7, for which tickets are available at www.nicevillecalm.com. Four families at a timeeach consisting of a mother and one or more young childrenwill live in the group home for up to nine months. Each family will have a bedroom. They will share a common living and dining area, kitchen and laundry. Two computers will be available in the living area for such purposes as job hunting and email. A spacious, fenced back yard will serve as a playground. A resident house mother will operate the home, ensuring security and monitoring conformance to house rules. For the good of all, a parent failing to observe the rules will be asked to leave, with her children. The young mothers, who will be required to remain drugand alcohol-free, will be expected to work outside the home at least 20 hours a week, as well as to perform household tasks in the home. Volunteer child care will be offered in house. Perhaps even more important, in the view of CALMs organizers, the young women must participate in daily, volunteer-led classes in such life skills as preparing a sensible shopping list, making nutritious meals, household cleanliness, family hygiene, time management, maintaining a bank account, and budgeting. Simple car and household maintenance will also be taught. We will teach everything from sewing on a button to getting and keeping a job, to workplace conflict resolution, to keeping a house cleaned and keeping food on the table, said Nuffer. Nuffer and Terri Steadman, CALMs vice president, also help facilitate a group for single mothers which meets regularly at Crosspoint Church, Niceville. MOMSFrom page A-1 How to helpThe second annual fundraiser for the CALM House will be held April 7 at Girl Power Station, 424 W. College Blvd., Valparaiso, from 6 to 8 p.m. The event will include heavy hors d'oeuvres, beer or wine, music and an exciting silent and live auction. Tax deductible tickets are $50 and may be purchased at or at the door. The group is also seeking volunteers to serve as mom mentors and childcare helpers at the Calm House, Niceville, for children of resident working mothers.

coming year, or whether only those most in need should be, and others later. Griffin suggested that the current design of the post signs, of plastic, may be modified to include a more quality, forwardlooking design. Beukenkamp said that he would obtain an inventory of signs to present to the board. MSBU board members also discussed working with Okaloosa County officials to obtain grant money from BP oil-spill settlement funds, which could be used to improve landscaping throughout Bluewater Bay. To get such a grant, it is likely that the MSBU would need to put up some money of its own. Beukenkamp told fellow board members that an existing application for grant money to improve flood control in Bluewater Bay is slowly working its way through the county bureaucracy, and is likely to eventually be approved. In other business, Brandon Burg, a lawyer representing the Florida Club homeowners association, asked MSBU members to work with the condominium community to find ways to offer more services there. Burg said that although Florida Club is officially a part of Bluewater Bay, its location on the western periphery makes it difficult for the MSBU to provide services there, as the condos share few common areas with the rest of the community. If such services cannot be provided, said Burg, the Florida Club association may approach the Okaloosa County Commission to have the development separated from the Bluewater Bay MSBU, thus exempting the condo owners from paying the annual MSBU assessment. Florida Club contains about 123 residential units, thus providing a substantial part of the MSBU budget. Beukenkamp told Burg, Your message is received loud and clear. During the meeting, the MSBU board approved a plan to spend up to $1,600 to clean up shrubbery along State Road 20 between Bay Drive and Florida Club, and possibly to also improve landscaping along the highway median in the same area. The board also appointed board member David Vardaman as point person to work with the Florida Club to determine what other services the MSBU can provide. Also during the meeting, the MSBU board approved spending up to $2,000 to plant sod near the shore of Chantilly Lake, and to spend up to $4,907 to repair broken irrigation sprinklers throughout Bluewater Bay in preparation for spring and summer watering of common areas.

It s hidden in your attic and between the floors of your home so it s easy to not give it much thought. However, the smallest duct leaks can lead to the biggest holes in your pocket when it comes to high utility bills. At this very moment, leaky ducts in your home could be contributing to excess humidity levels that can lead to a lower level of comfort, rooms that are unevenly cooled or heated and musty odors and air quality issues. With seeping air, your system could be forced to work harder, making it difficult to heat or cool certain rooms. All of these issues lead to discomfort and high energy bills. A newer technology of sealing your ductwork from the inside has been around for almost a decade through Aeroseal.
