Beacon Staff A state grand jury that heard evidence stemming from child-abuse allegations at an Okaloosa County public school said it found insufficient evidence to file criminal charges against anyone other than the four school-district employees previously arrested in the case. In a report issued last week, the grand jury said its review of evidence presented by the office of First Circuit State Attorney Bill Eddins did not warrant charging Okaloosa County Superintendent of School Mary Beth Jackson. In a previous report, issued in February, the grand jury had asked Eddins to further investigate Jackson in the case. The latest grand jury report was issued last week following the requested review by the state attorney.

It was the fourth year in a row that the Niceville-based college, working to boost sagging enrollment, did not raise tuition prices. However many course fees, charged for such add-ons as supplies and accident insurance, will rise, some of them substantially. Not counting course-specific fees, the total lower-division tuition and across-the-board fees for in-state, credit-seeking students remains at $104.01 per semester hour. Thus, the semester cost for typical class load of 12 hours per semester would be $1,248, plus any course-specific fees. The base tuition figure has not risen since 2014. The college remains committed to quality educational programs and services, and we want to help make education an achievable and affordable goal for all interested students, said Brian Pennington, trustees chairman. College leadership will continue to make every effort to reduce theBeacon Staff Writer The Twin Cities will cap a daylong celebration of America's birthday on today with a spectacular Independence Day fireworks display over Boggy Bayou. The fireworks show, which will begin at about 8:45 p.m., will be preceded by a full schedule of events for all ages taking place in Lincoln Park, Valparaiso, starting with the city's 40th annual duathlon, kicking off at 7 a.m. The duathlon consists of a 5K run from the park to Lewis School and back, followed by a 200meter swim in Boggy Bayou, also beginning and ending at the park. People interested in something a bit more slow-paced can join a 5K fun run that will begin at 8 a.m. Those seeking a different challenge on the nation's 242nd birthday might be interested in the annual 3.2K stand-up paddleboard race beginning at 10 a.m. Registration forms must be completed for each event, and there is $25 registration fee for the paddleboard and duathlon events. The fun run is free. Participants can sign up in advance through the city website (valp.org/community/events.html), at city hall, or in person at the park the morning of the event. Same-day registration for the duathlon is at 6:15 a.m., at 7:45 a.m. for the fun run, and at 9:30 a.m. for the paddleboard race. The activities planned for July 4 don't end there.

The items were for presentation only, with any decisions reserved for future meetings. The meeting did not deal with the entire budget for the coming year, but only with proposals for capital improvements and hires of new personnel. Other budget issues will be discussed during later meetings and workshops. Directors of various city departments briefed commissioners on their proposals. City Clerk Tammy Johnson described the proposals as wish lists from each department, while Police Chief Joe Hart acknowledged that the proposals were not written in stone, and that not all such proposals would necessarily be funded during the coming budget.

Tuition covers less than half the cost of a students education, with most of the rest coming from taxpayers. In addition, many students receive direct tuition assistance from tax-funded government sources. During the meeting in DeFuniak Springs June 19, the trustees eliminated student fees for parking, as well as the $15 graduation fee. The board of trustees also noted a continued increase in college enrollment and applications in relation to year-ago figures. The college reported a 1 percent rise for fall semester 2017, and 6 percent for spring semester 2018. We could not be more pleased with the progress we are making at Northwest Florida State College, said Devin Stephenson, college president. In other business, the board reelected Pennington to another term as chairman. Thomas "Rudy" Wright was named vice chairman. TUITIONFrom page A-1

tations, but said little. Among the proposals were $26,509 for the police department, which would include $12,959 for new radios, phones, and voice recording equipment, as well as $4,115 to obtain forensic alternate light sources to be used for gathering evidence at crime scenes, $4,200 for an audio-video surveillance system, and $3,000 for a traffic camera. Also included were $1,035 to convert some 9 mm pistols into rifles for police use during serious emergencies, and $1,200 to be spent for puncture-resistant search gloves for each officer. The fire department asked for $88,000, including $57,000 to add an assistant fire chief who would double as fire inspector, and $31,000 to replace 21 fire hydrants. The largest and most expensive list of project proposals came from the city parks department, which is asking for $1,026,509. This would include $300,000 for park upgrades, including pavilions, benches, and playground equipment, as well as another $300,000 to build a childrens splash pad at Perrine Park. Also requested was $100,000 to improve or replace the existing boat ramp at Lincoln Park, as well as $80,000 to improve the boat launch at Florida Park and improve the parking area at that park, to provide about 20 new parking spots. Also requested was $30,000 to demolish restrooms at Florida Park and replace them with facilities accessible to the disabled, and $15,000 for repairs and improvements to the bathroom at Lincoln Park. The parks department also requested $50,000 to hire a new staff member to complete ongoing maintenance such as painting, board replacement, roof repairs, minor plumbing, piling replacements, etc., and $25,000 for signage at existing parks to establish the course of an aquatic trail which would include the citys waterfront parks as well as Sunset Cemetery. A total of $178,000 was requested for various street improvement projects. These include $150,000 for paving unimproved roads in Valparaiso, as well as $28,000 for obtaining new equipment for street maintenance. The Valparaiso Public Library requested $4,000 to replace ceiling lights. The city administration department sought $4,000 to purchase new desks and chairs. Some non-departmental requests included $2,500 to purchase a soundboard for recording public meetings, and $1,500 to replace ceiling lights in the city commission chamber. Yet to be determined is the expected cost of stormwater improvements throughout the city. These could include stabilizing eroding banks at Glen St. Mary Park along Glendale Avenue, replacing failed infrastructure at the park, and adding additional storm structure to preserve land and roadway near the park. The water and sewer department requested $175,000, to include $120,000 to convert city wells from oil lubrication to water lubrication, and $55,000 for new valve insertion equipment, which would provide the ability to install isolation valves on water lines and auxiliary valves on fire hydrants without interrupting water service. Discussion of the municipal budget is expected to continue at the city commissions next meeting, scheduled for 6 p.m. July 9. Other budget workshops are scheduled for July 17 and July 24, possibly followed by some additional workshops, and public budget hearings in September, prior to the new budget taking effect on Oct. 1.

It asked that state education officials be notified and that they take appropriate action against Ms. Jackson. Asked to comment on the report, Jackson said Monday, I want to thank the state attorney and the grand jury for all their hard work. I am hoping our school district can move forward with the business of getting ready for a new school year. Referring to recent high marks from the Florida Department of Education, Jackson added, We are an A+ school district again this year, and we want to keep it that way. Three school district employees were arrested last year, and a fourth early this year, following allegations of abuse of a student at Kenwood Elementary School, Fort Walton Beach. One employee was charged with abuse, and the other three with failing to report suspected abuse. All have entered not-guilty pleas and await trials, currently scheduled to begin Aug. 13. The text of last weeks grand jury report follows: At the request of the Office of the State Attorney, we have again met to review matters concerning the Okaloosa County School District. In our previous report, we asked the State Attorney's Office to continue its investigation to determine if evidence existed to support more arrests. Of particular concern to us was the knowledge and behavior of Superintendent of Schools, Mary Beth Jackson. This additional investigation has now been completed and presented to us for our review. This new evidence concerns Mary Beth Jackson as well as allegations of possible child abuse by a former school district teacher. Based upon our review, we find that there is insufficient evidence to support any additional criminal charges and therefore, return a NO TRUE BILL. While we have found that the evidence presented to us is insufficient to allow us to indict Mary Beth Jackson on any criminal charges, we continue to lack confidence in her abilities to serve as Superintendent of Schools for Okaloosa County. As stated in our previous report, we are most concerned about her behavior, lack of leadership, and failure to fulfill her obligations as Superintendent. For these reasons, we, the members of this Grand Jury, recommend that the Department of Education review this matter and take appropriate action against Ms. Jackson. To assist in this review, we ask the State Attorney's Office forward copies of our reports to the Department of Education. We further recommend that both the School District and School Board move forward to fully implement the recommendations made in our previous report. JACKSONFrom page A-1 that is ideal for all types of waterrelated activities and a pavilion for picnicking, but on the holiday it will also feature special activities for children. One can expect to see the fireworks beginning just after dark, around 8:45 p.m. It will last about 20 minutes. People are encouraged to come late afternoon or early evening to stake out a spot and enjoy a picnic while listening to pre-show music that can be heard at Lincoln Park and Lions Park. The music will feature a tribute to Boggys 150th anniversary. Popular vantage points include Lincoln Park and Shipyard Park in Valparaiso, and Lions Park and Kiwanis Park in Niceville. Street parking is limited, so be prepared for a short walk. Access to the boat ramps at Lions Park, Twin Cities Park, and Lincoln Park will be limited on the Fourth. Twin Cities Park will be closed through Thursday. Community members work year round to raise funds for the fireworks show. One such funding source is the City of Niceville's annual Boston Butt sale.
