The loan from First National
Bank & Trust will be in the form
of a "line of credit" rather than a
regular lump-sum loan, Doucet
said. With a line of credit, he
explained, the city will be
charged less interest because the
money will remain with the bank
until the city draws it out to pay
invoices as work proceeds on the
repairs. First National Bank &

Behind a 10-foot wall of reeds at the head of Boggy Bayou,
nature's wetland beauty is now accessible to the public
via the new Boggy Bayou Nature Trail, the latest segment
of Niceville's nature boardwalks. Entry to the 470-foot
boardwalk, which is open all the time, is near the west end
of the John Sims Parkway bridge over Turkey Creek, a
short walk from the Bayou Plaza parking lot. Niceville city
employees built the boardwalk in four months, matching a
$271,000 state grant with labor and the value of land.

As of Oct. 4, when the rolls
were closed for Nov. 2, there are
128,428 registered voters in
Okaloosa County.
Republicans outnumbered
Democrats better than two to
one. There were 74,165 regis-
tered Republicans in the county,
29,729 Democrats and 24,588
others, according to the Okaloosa
County Supervisor of Elections.
This year's ballot includes six
proposed amendments to the
Florida Constitution and one
non-binding referendum on an
amendment to the U.S.
Constitution that would require a
balanced federal budget without
raising taxes.
Several contests on the gener-

interest, including a race to elect
a U.S. Senator, choose a gover-
nor, and put a new sheriff in
charge of Okaloosa County.
In the race for the U.S.

Eglin Air Force Base is host-
ing three public hearings this
week to explain and receive pub-
li: counts on document
Supplemental Environmental
Impact Statement (SEIS.)
The SEIS analyzes the poten-
tial environmental consequences
associated with implementation
of the 2005 Base Realignment
and Closure decision to establish
a joint initial training center for
the Joint Strike Fighter, the F-35
Lightening II. The first of 59 F-
35s to be based at Eglin are slat-
ed to arrive later this year or
early in 2011.
The SEIS studied the impact
of 19 different alternatives for
flying operations of the F-35,
using various runways at Eglin,

F-35 jet fighter

Duke Field and Choctaw Field.
After getting public comments
on the document the Air Force
will finalize the SEIS in early
2011 and by early spring will
make a Record of Decision on
how to employ F-35 flying oper-
ations here at Eglin.
At each public hearing the
Air Force will provide members
of the community information
about this project and ensure the
public has a fair and equal
opportunity to consider and
comment on the Draft SEIS.
Attendees will be encouraged to
provide oral and written com-
ments during the public hearings
or to mail in written comments
prior to the close of the public
comment period, Nov. 8, 2010.
Tonight the public can attend
the second hearing at the
Niceville campus of Northwest
Florida State College, 100 E.
College Blvd., in the Gallery
room in the K building .
The first hearing was sched-
uled for last night in Valparaiso.
Tomorrow evening the third
public hearing is set for
Crestview at the Shoal River

Middle School, in the multi-pur-
pose room, 3200 Redstone Ave.
The hearings all have the fol-
lowing format:

Lots of hungry mullet fans will
consume this humble fish that has
played such an important role in
both the local economy and in the
general nutrition of our culture.
The fish are sometimes called
jumpingn" or "happy" mullet
because they leap out of the water
and seem to skip along its surface.
During the 1930s Great
Depression, mullet was a mainstay
for many local families when the
area's economy was dependent on
forestry and fishing.
While some people find the
richness of the mullet's flesh a bit
much to handle, it's a popular
food fish--and
has been for
not only in
Florida but
in Europe,
Asia and Africa as
Ancient Romans frequently
wrote about the mullet. They were
cultivated by F-\-witansl along the
Nile. And they were popular with
native chieftains on the Hawaiian
and Philippine islands.
You can fry mullet, broil mul-
let, bake mullet, smoke mullet or
cook it up in increasingly interest-
ing ways.
Of course, there's much more
to a mullet festival than mullet if
you want to fill your stomach.

Spidennan and Batman will swing
into the festival Sunday via fire
engine between 1:30 and 2 p.m.
While at the Mullet Festival,
it's a good idea to pay one's
respects to the Queen. This year's
Mullet Festival Queen is Nikita
Wilson, a 20-year-old beauty from
Crestview. She'll be at the festival
several times, but she and her
court will be formally introduced
about 6 p.m. Saturday.
Not into fish, music or games?,
Come anyway, and enjoy some
breathtaking arts and crafts.
Or thrill to rides that are sure to
get your adrenaline flowing. A
wristband good for unlimited rides
is available for $20 per person.
Every year, the Mullet Festival
seems to grow, filling Twin Oaks
Sports Complex with as many as
45,000 people attending through
the three days of festivities,
according to the organizers.
Gates open at 11 a.m. Friday, 9
a.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. Sunday.
Admission is $10 at the gate and
$9 in advance, with children under
12 admitted free. Advance tickets
are available through boggybay-

About 45,000 attended last year's

performed at the Mullet Festival
for at least the last five years.
Generating a lot of excitement
among younger festival goers is

they walk through the

fastest, for obvious reasons, is the
mullet. Served up with cheese
grits and beans, the Boggy Boys
Sportsmen's Club sold about
4,500 pounds of fried or smoked
mullet at the 2009 festival, accord-
ing to Mark Elliott, a member of
the group. This year's mullet will
be fresh-caught right out of
Choctawhatchee Bay and its bay-
ous, he said, thanks to the club's
skilled cast-netters.

the pay raises did not use such
words as "pay," "increase," or

the measure an "addendum to the

the school Alexis Tibbetts
district's personnel chief, nor
Tibbetts addressed the board
regarding the proposed raises
during Monday's meeting,
although both were present.
The teacher and noninstruc-
tional personnel step increases
were part of the master contract
ratification between the school
board and the two labor unions.
In both cases the salary sched-
ule, including annual step
increases, would remain the
same as this year, according to
Foxworthy. Those employees
who are not eligible for a step
increase-usually the most senior
employees at the top of the pay
scales-will get a $500 bonus

A third agenda item gave pay
raises to administrative personnel
not covered by union contracts.
In a prepared statement Hill
explained, in part, his motivation
for recommending no pay
increase this year:
"During a few 'good years,
this board was able to provide
generous increases in our
employees' compensation. For
example, during one two-year
period, we raised teachers'
salaries about 16 percent. Even

Beacon Staff Writer
The Valparaiso City
Commission Monday appointed
its own negotiating team in
advance of a scheduled Thursday
meeting with Gulf Power to dis-
cuss the future of the city's elec-
tricity franchise.
The city commission also pre-
pared to attend the Air Force pub-
lic meetings this week on the
environmental impact of the F-
Commissioner Tom Miller,
City Administrator Carl Scott and
Cable Communication
Department head Burt Bennett
will act as the city s negotiating
team on the city's franchise
agreement with Gulf Power
Thursday at 9:30 a.m.
The city's 30-year franchise
agreement allowing Gulf Power
to sell electricity in Valparaiso
expires next August. As a condi-
tion for renewal, the city is seek-
ing concessions from the power
company, including deletion of
"pole attachment fees" the com-
pany charges for allowing the city
to affix cable television and com-
munications cables to power
poles. The city is also eyeing a

possible buyout of Gulf Power's
equipment and plant with an eye
to the city becoming the power
provider inside Valparaiso.
City Attomney Doug Wyckoff
reported that, as requested by
commissioners, he contacted the
Orlando-based law firm of Gray
Robinson about representing
Valparaiso in its efforts to renew
the electric franchise and possi-
bly institute the city as the electric
provider. The law firm estimated
it would cost the city in the range
of $25,000 to represent the city.
In 2006 Valparaiso paid Gray
Robinson attorney Thomas
Cloud a little more than $25,000
for a feasibility study on the city
itself owning the electric fran-
chise. According to
Commissioner Miller, thee study,
which was not made public, con-
cluded that the city could lower
residents' electric bills by about
30 percent if the city took over
the franchise and purchased elec-
tricity off the grid from power
generators, including Gulf Power.
Also on Monday, Mayor
Bruce Amold encouraged city
residents to attend one of three
public hearings by the Air Force
this week on the F-35

Supplemental Environmental
Impact Statement (SEIS). The
mayor said some of the altemna-
tives for flying the F-35 Joint
Strike Fighter would have "dev-
astating" effects on the city.
Wyckoff, who has lined up
legal assistance from a
Tallahassee specialist law firm on
the city's behalf, said that the Air
Force's preferred alternative, 1A,
is the worst option for Valparaiso
in terms of jet noise. He also said
that the noise modeling used in
the SEIS was based on the con-
ventional takeoff-and-landing F-
35A used by the Air Force, not
the noisier short-takeoff-and-ver-
tical-landing F-35B used by the
Marine Corps, which will also be
based at Eglin. He also criticized
the --alcllelc" charts in the SEIS
document and said the military
discounted Choctaw Field alter-
natives without explaining the
Wyckoff and the Tallahassee
firm were recently authorized by
the city commission to represent
private clients in any jet-noise
claims against the Air Force.
Amold said the more residents
show up and express their con-
cems, the more it would show Air

Force officials that the communi-
ty is united. He is also concerned
about sources of funding, includ-
ing congressional appropriation,
needed to remediate, including
sound-proofing homes, any jet
noise problems in Valparaiso.
In response to a Beacon
request for comment on the out-
look for any federal compensa-
tion for Valparaiso property own-
ers who may claim damages from
F-35 jet noise, Dist. 1
Congressman Jeff Miller issued
the following comment:
"It's disappointing that the
leadership of the City of
Valparaiso continues to fight the
Air Force instead of working
with them to address any issues
associated with the (F-35) bed
down. The JLUS process is
intended to meet the needs of the
Air Force, while addressing any
conflicts or concerns with local
residents. City officials continue
to exclude themselves by pursu-
ing legal proceedings as the first
course of action instead of the
last. I am glad to do whatever I
can to help the homeowners and
residents of Valparaiso during
this process, because their elected
city officials are certainly not."

during the ensuing 'leaner years'
we approved longevity pay
increases (aka step increases)
generally equating to roughly 2
percent annually."
Hill continued:
"This has occurred during a
time when many of our fellow
citizens in Okaloosa County
were, and
some still
are, facing
loss of jobs
(i.e., loss of
income) or
surviving on
salaries or
f ix e d
when the Rodney Walker
cost of living just keeps going
Hill told the Beacon that even
if there is a presumed legal
requirement to pass the salary
schedule because it had already
been negotiated with the unions,
there is a moral requirement to
deny the raise during the current
economic situation. He also told
the Beacon that although the
contract had been negotiated, it
was not officially approved by
the board until Monday's meet-
Part of the economic situa-
tion, Hill said, is the current drain
of school board dollars to accom-
modate the requirements of class
size limits. Hill was defeated in
his bid for another four-year term
in the Aug. 24 election by a
union-backed candidate, Melissa
Thrush, who will take office Nov.
Some Okaloosa schools have
cut back on the hours for art and
music, Hill said, while some
math and science courses have
been deleted. Hill said he voted
against a "step" increase in 2008
and again in 2009, although he
later approved a revised 2009
step schedule that was amended
to generate a savings to the
school district.
During Monday's board
meeting, Chuck Kelley said, "I
see this as a vote on leadership.
We need to run the school district

like a business, and be better
money managers."
Regarding the pay increases,
Kelley told the many union
members who attended the meet-
ing, "You deserve it, but we can't
afford it." He said he has seen
valuable education programs,
including classes in math, sci-
ence, music and art, canceled
during the past year due to a lack
of funds.
"That's why there's money
for this raise," Kelley said.
"When I see children suffering, I
say let's focus on the children
rather than the adults."
Okaloosa teachers are already
the fourth highest paid among
Florida's 67 school districts,
Kelley said. Okaloosa teacher
pay is the highest in the Florida
Panhandle, and is outpaced only
by a handful of high-cost South
Florida counties such as Dade,
Palm Beach and Sarasota.
Hill said, "Many of our coun-
ty residents are living on fixed or
reduced incomes," and the raises
will cost valuable education pro-
grams for Okaloosa students.
The other board members did
not agree. Cathy Thli-lpe said,
"We negotiated this contract in
good faith, and I support that."
She added, however, that she is
concerned about controlling
costs. "We should look for every
area in which we can save
School Board Chairman
Rodney Walker said he disagreed
with Hill and Kelley, saying "The
most important thing in this dis-
trict is our teachers." Spending
cuts, he said, should "start every-
where but on the backs of our
employees." In any case, Walker
said, "I think it's a moot point,"
since the contract had already
been negotiated.
Walker and Hill both told the
Beacon following the meeting
that the total cost of the pay
increases for teachers and others
will be about $2.4 million a year,
including all teachers and sup-
prstf.If history is any guide,
this year's increase would be
embedded and compounded in
future percentage increases, so

the future annual cost may be
higher than $2.4 million, assum-
ing no other changes.
The average annual cost to
taxpayers of employing a teacher
in the Okaloosa School District,
said Hill, is about $68,000,
including salary, Social Security
tax, medical and other benefits
provided to teachers. Teachers
work about nine months a year.
After the school board voted
in favor of the pay raises, Karen
Peek, a Bluewater Elementary
School teacher who is also presi-
dent of the OCEA, addressed the
board, thanking them for "honor-
ing our contract" and saying the
step increase "is not a raise. We
haven't asked for a raise in two
years." She said the step increas-
es are needed by teachers.
"Forty-five thousand dollars a
year for a mother of two is not
much to live on."
According to the pay schedule
posted on the OCEA website,
nine-month teacher salaries
range from $32,428 for a new
teacher with a bachelor's degree,
to $67,454 for a teacher with a
master's degree and 23 years
seniority, or as much as $73,667
if the experienced teacher also
holds a Ph.D.
Okaloosa teachers are work-
ing extra hard because of recent
staff cuts at Okaloosa schools,
Peek said. "We're doing the jobs
of colleagues who are no longer
Peek's remarks were vigor-
ously applauded by an audience
of over a hundred people, many
of whom appeared to be OCEA
and OCESPA members who
attended the meeting to see what
would happen to their pay.
Patrick Strong, president of
the OCESPA, which represents
such support personnel as school
bus drivers, food service work-
ers, classroom assistants, and
school maintenance personnel,
said that despite the step increas-
es, "We are doing more with
less." Support staffing in the dis-
trict, he said, has been cut from
1,200 to 1,130 people, while the
need for support services has not

The FNBT line of credit
will be paid back, Doucet said,
with money from another loan,
called a State Revolving Fund
Loan, from the State of
Florida. Such state loans are
often used to finance public
works projects of local govern-
ments, Doucet said, but in
recent years such state loans
have not always arrived as
quickly as in the past, so the
FNBT line of credit will fill
the gap, allowing work to

begin while the city awaits the
state loan. The state loan, in
turn, will be paid off from rev-
enue from customer fees of
water and sewer system users
in Niceville.
In other business at
Tuesday's meeting, the city
council approved a proposal to
purchase a bust of George
Ireland, who served as city
clerk for 19 years, and as assis-
tant city clerk in a semi-retired
status for another 13 years

after that, until his death on
Sept. 18 of this year.
According to the plan
approved by the council, "We
will order a bronze bust that
will be mounted on the con-
crete pillar on the left of the
front door to the finance wing"
at Niceville city hall, accord-
ing to a letter from Doucet to

Nestled in the longleaf pines and
shady oaks of Boggy Bayou, the
Boathouse Landing in Valparaiso
reflects the beauty and relaxed
lifestyle of Northwest Florida.
Family owned and operated by
Nick and Lisa Sarra since 2001,
The Boathouse Landing is the ideal
choice whether you're looking for a
casual meal with your family or for
dinner before a show. The Bilge
Pub offers two ways to unwind after
a day of work or play, with a com-
fortable lounge inside, and a cov-
ered outside patio and oyster bar.
Oysters on the half shell are now
available in the lounge. Enjoy a half
dozen with your favorite happy hour
drink while playing NTN trivia.
The Bilge Pub offers happy hour
from Monday to Saturday, 3 p.m. to
6 p.m.; with different drink specials
on tap each day.
On Friday and Saturday nights,
live music on the patio and outside
dining deck is an eclectic mix of
island, country, and soft rock that
adds to the dining experience at
The Boathouse Landing. You may
even catch a glimpse of dolphins
swimming through the waters of

The Boathouse Landing is open

There's an extensive menu with
something for every diner. "It's not
just seafood," says Nick. Favorites
include the Prime Rib, the

Boathouse Grouper and the
Oysters Rockefeller appetizer.
"We have four items we run from
4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m., seven days a

Garlic Beurre Blanc, Jumbo Fried
Shrimp, Beef Tenderloin Tips with
Marsala Mushroom Sauce and
Pan-Sauteed Chicken Breast
topped with Crab Meat, Asparagus
and Hollandaise.
"We do an extensive military
business since we're so close to
the base," says Lisa. Besides offer-
ing an excellent location for retire-
ment lunches and going-away cele-
brations, the Landing provides a
menu of fast, delicious lunch
options such as our popular

Coconut Chicken Salad or Grouper
The Boathouse Landing's ban-
quet room can be reserved to
accommodate intimate parties of
15 or 16 people all the way up to
large events of 75 or more. It would
be hard to find a more lovely loca-
tion to host a family celebration or
reception than the restaurant,
steeped in old Florida charm.
The Boathouse Landing also
rents boat slips on a nightly and
monthly basis. Many slips are also
available for diners who choose to
come in by water for a meal.
