A Niceville couple plans to
construct an assisted-living
facility near Bluewater Bay and
open it next spring.
Bee Hive Homes of
Niceville is the name of the
proposed 15-unit, 8,000-square-
foot facility that Steve and
Leslie Walker, of Niceville,
plan to open on a one-acre plot

at 4268 Ida Coon Circle.
Fourteen of the rooms in the
residential-style assisted-living
facility will be able to house
one resident each, the Walkers
said. The 15th room will be
able to house a couple.
The home will retain the
feel of a family residence while
providing around-the-clock
staffing and home-cooked
meals served family style, Mrs.

Walker said. Other services
will include daily housekeep-
ing, laundry service and assis-
tance with everyday activities
such as medication, walking
and grooming. The site plans
include a fenced backyard with
a patio and a path through a
garden where residents can
exercise and get fresh air in a
secure setting.

Rebuffed in its attempt to get
the Niceville City Council to
approve rezoning the Hawk's
Landing area of northwest
Niceville from R-1, single-family
residential, to R-3, multiple fami-

revised request before the
Niceville Planning Colmnission
The commission, for the sec-
and time in as many months,
overrode Air Force objections
and voted Monday to approve the
request and send it on to the city
council. The council will consid-.
er it at its regular meeting
Tuesday, Nov. 10, at 7 p.m. in
council chambers.

The planners' vote to approve
was passed 4-2, with Thomas
Churan and Fred Jones voting
against and Vicki Ritchson, Tony
Namlick, Chris McLeaish and Ed
Sweeney voting for. Commission
member Judy Bymne Riley did
not attend the meeting.
The property is just south of
College Boulevard, west of Twin

This store for Willingham Seafood in Valparaiso is at the center of a controversy between
city officials and owner Matt Willingham, former police captain. The city contends the
building was built without proper permits and zoning waivers. Willingham has lost his
police job in the dispute.

College ex-president James R.
Richburg was among the visitors
to a reception Friday honoring
artists exhibiting in new shows at
the college art galleries on the
main campus in Niceville.
Richburg, of Niceville, has
kept a low public profile since he
was dismissed as the college's
president in April after 22 years
at the helm.
The college board of trustees
fired Richburg and the state
stopped his pension after he was
indictedby state grand jury on
charges of perjury and official

Much of the recent news has been about
the effects of high levels of jet noise
expected in Valparaiso and parts of
Niaceville from don atf F-3 fightevrk .
next year at Eglin Air Force Base. The
issue of jet noise affecting surrounding
civilian communities, however, is not a new
one for the Twin Cities area.
Thanks to a reader in Niceville, the
Beacon obtained a copy of a 32-year-old
article from a now-defunct weekly paper
published in Valparaiso. The Page 1 story
in the June 30, 1977, issue of the Bayou
Times was headlined (pre-spellchecker):
"Noisey F-4s to be replaced by faster, but
quieter F-15s."

The story stated that the Air Force had
announced the previous Friday that the F-
4E Phantom jets of the 33rd Tactical
Fighter Wing would be replaced by newer,
high-perfiannance F-15 Eagles starting in
ealTe F-15, which an Air Force
spokesman called 'much quieter than the F-
4,' will significantly lower the noise level in
the Valparaiso-Niceville area," the Bayou
Times wrote.
In September, 33rd Fighter Wing com-
mander Col. Todd Hanner ended an era
when he flew the wing's last F-15 to an Air
Force "boneyard" in the Arizona desert.
On Oct. 1 the 33rd wing transitioned from
an air-to-air warfighting role to a training

The June 30, 1977, issue of the weekly Bayou Times, Valparaiso, announced the impending arrival of F-15 fighter jets to
replace more-noisy F-4s based at Eglin Air Force Base. The last of the now-aging F-15s left Eglin in September for an

Eglin in September,
However, it is not clear
whether the Air Force ever seri-
ously considered Eglin as an oper-
ational base for the F-35, given its
already-announced training mis-
sion. Eglin was never on the list of
205 possible bases as an opera-
tional base, the Air Force said.
Last week's Air Force
announcement of the 11 candidate
bases for follow-on F-35s paves
the way for the service to begin the
fonnal environmental impact
analysis process and site assess-
ment of the bases, allowing com-
munities around each candidate
base to participate in the environ-
mental reports.
"The selection of this candidate
list is the result of a deliberate,
repeatable, standardized and trans-
parent process," said Kathleen
Ferguson, Air Force deputy assis-

tant secretary of installations. "We
are excited about the future of the
Joint Strike Fighter and look for-
ward to working with each of the
communities surrounding these
bases to ensure all of their con-
cemns are addressed," she said.
Goetsch said that the local
community has not given up on
getting at least 72 F-35 aircraft sta-
tioned at Eglin to support the train-
ing mission. The difference of one
or two squadrons possibly going
elsewhere is because, he said,
Valparaiso chose to fight the new
aircraft with a lawsuit, rather than
welcome the new mission with
open arms.
"The difference between 107
and 59 (F-35s assigned to Eglin) is
a self-inflicted wound," Goetsch
said. Colmnunities around west-
ern bases such as Luke, Tucson
and Hill have used that (news

accounts of the Valparaiso lawsuit)
to Eglin's detriment, he said, and
have enlisted the help of Sen. John
McCain, R-Ariz., fonner presi-
dential candidate. "Basically, we
are a diminished training base," he
Mayor Amold of Valparaiso
did not respond directly to
Goetsch's assertion that a dimin-
ished F-35 training role for Eglin
was Amold's "legacy' to Okaloosa
Asked to comment, Amold
said: "The Air Force is doing
what's best for the Air Force and
the country."
With the phaseout of the F-15
and the curtailment of the F-22
programs some bases will be left
without a mission, he said. "We
always supported the F-35 pro-
gram," the mayor continued, but
Eglin did not consider sufficient
alternatives that would reduce jet
noise in surrounding colmnuni-
ties, including Valparaiso, the city
closest to an Eglin runway.
"We didn't say we didn't want
the airplanes here," Amold said.
He noted that in the wake of
Valparaiso's lawsuit, the Air Force
is studying 18 ways to reduce the
noise of F-35 flights centered at

addition, the late 1970s transi-

The list of candidate F-35
bases announced last week were
selected using previously
announced basing criteria such as
airspace, flight training ranges,
weather, support facilities, run-
ways, taxi ramps and environ-
mental concerns, and military
judgment factors such as combat-
ant commander requirements, air-
craft retirements and delivery
schedules, aircraft maintenance
and logistics support and integra-
tion with the Air National Guard
and Air Force Reserve.
By late spring of 2010 Air
Force officials expect to announce
its preferred locations. Once for-
mal enviromnental impact state-
ments are complete, the Air Force
will issue fmnal basing decisions,
anticipated in early 2011.
Five of the 11 bases under con-
sideration for the F-35, the

2 business


By Mike Griffith
Beacon Correspond'ent
During a brief meeting held in
the Valparaiso City Commission
chamber Thursday, Oct. 29, the
city s Board of Adjustments
approved two requests for excep-
tions to the city's zoning permit-
ted uses for property.
The first request was present-
ed by business owner Aaron Tew,
who operates A Kitchen and
Bath Group at 507 Valparaiso
Parkway. He asked to be allowed
to continue operating the busi-
ness, although it is located with-
in Plat 15, in a C-1 zoning dis-
trict, which usually does not per-
mit such a business.
The second request was pre-
sented by Chris Carter, for his
business, Creek Enterprises,
which installs and maintains
cable systems. His business,
located at 147 Nordberg Road, is
also located in Plat 15, within a
C-1 zoning district.

Some visitors wore Halloween
costumes to an artists' reception
and opening of two art exhibits at
the Mattie Kelley Arts Center at
Northwest Florida State College,
Niceville, on Friday.
Some of the costumed visitors
were on their way to the
Northwest Florida Symphony
Orchestra's "Spooktacular" con-
cert, which was presented in the
adjacent Arts Center the same
evening. Like the music next door,
both art exhibits also had certain
spooky or mystical qualities, as
one might expect of art shows
opening the night before
Behind a dark curtain, the
Holzhauer Gallery was illuminat-
ed only by small spotlights, aimed
at sculptures covered by hundreds
of tiny mirrors, which reflected
small points of light onto the
walls, floor, ceiling, and people

within the gallery. Artist Wendy
Wischer said her exhibit, titled "In
Search of Magic," consists of
works which are polyvalentt and
multi-layered, designed to move
light around the room.
"I like doing interesting things
with light and space, to create an
atmosphere like that of a garden,"
Wischer said. The most prominent
sculpture in Wischer's exhibit is
called "Angels and Ancestors, Part
Resembling a large disco ball,
the sculpture is one of three simi-
lar works, and is in the shape of a
baobab tree. Wischer said such
trees are revered by some people
as symbols of light and life. Her
"tree" is covered by small mirrors
which reflect points of light
throughout the otherwise dark-
ened gallery, creating an effect
similar to being in a planetarium.
Wischer said she teaches at the
Ringling College of Art in
Sarasota when not doing works of

her own.
In the McIlroy Gallery, West
Virginia University art professor
Dylan Collins displayed drawings
and sculptures in an exhibit titled,
"Diagrammatic Disarray." His
works, he said, combine imagery
of biological objects such as cattle
entrails with mechanical, man-
made images such as pipes and

When observing his sculptures,
for example, the viewer gets an
impression somewhere between
seeing brightly colored plumbing
protruding from the walls and
floor, and seeing disembodied
cow's bowels made of Lego toys.
Collins said his work is some-
what similar to the bio-mechanical
style of H.R. Geiger, who is famed
for designing the acid-drooling
monsters of the "Alien" movie
series. "But my work," Collins
said, "is not as dark or gloomy."
Instead, said the artist, his
works are intended "to have a
more playful and toy-like aspect,
but also to be a little unsettling."
"I've always been interested in
anatomy and the body," Collins
said. "Most of my works are a
hybridization of the organic and
the mechanical."
In addition to artists, other
notable persons were at Friday's
art show. One of these was Mayor

Tami Alford-Duttweiler,
owner of House of Carpets in
Fort Walton Beach, describes
her business as "my dad's
baby." Her father, Ron Alford, a
Niceville native, established the
company in 1970 in partnership
with Gale Hohnadale. After his
death from cancer in 2004,
Tami and her husband, John
Duttweiler, continued the tradi-
tion of excellent service for
which her father's business
was known. "One of the most
important things to me is con-
tinuing my dad's legacy," said
Tami. Under their leadership,
House of Carpets continues to
serve the needs of flooring cus-
tomers throughout the area.
And everyone walking
through the front door is bound
to feel at home, as the compa-
ny draws on local talent to pro-
vide its services. One example
is new team member Indio
Balderrama of Niceville, who
gained experience at another
local flooring business. Even
some of their installers are sec-
ond-generation employees.
And most have roots in the
Niceville area.
"The number one thing that
separates our company from

Other people is we take care of
our customers from end to
end," said Tami. House of

Carpets' work doesn't finish
when the installation job is
over. "We want not just a satis-
fied customer, but a loyal cus-
tomer," said John. "We treat our
customers like friends from the
start," added Balderrama.
This commitment to contin-
ued service means that House
of Carpets now has third-gener-
ation customers coming
through their doors, people
whose friends and relatives
have been doing business with
the company for years. "'Dad
said to call you, he said you'd
be honest with us,'-we hear
that a lot," said Tami.
Your experience as a cus-
tomer at House of Carpets is
guaranteed to be different than
what you'll find at many other
similar businesses. "We're not
hard-sell," said Tami. "We like
to listen to our customers, listen
to their needs and their
And no matter what you do
need, House of Carpets is cer-

tain to have it available. "If it
goes on the floor, we pretty
much have it--carpet, wood,
tile, laminate," Tami said. "If you
can't find it here, you won't be
able to find it." What's more,
they also do custom work and
design. Walk through the spa-
cious showroom and get a
close look at the huge variety of
products available.
House of Carpets offers its
products to a wide variety of
clients. "You name it, we do it,"
said Tami. From residential to

struction to remodels, apart-

a 5-2 vote at its Oct. 5 meeting,
with Fred Jones and Tom Churan
voting against it. But the city
council Oct. 13 voted 3-2 to reject
it, sending Ruckel Properties back
to the drawing board. Council
members Dan Henkel, Al Swihart
and William Thomas voted to
reject Ruckel's request, while Judy
Boudreaux and Bill Smith voted
to accept it.
Planning commission Chair
Tony Namlick, who voted for the
first proposal, said that he wasn't
surprised the city council denied

"I'm very pleased that we'll
have a compromise that's accept-
able to everybody, perhaps even
the Air Force," Namlick said,
referring to the new re zoning
request from Ruckel.
But Churan said he was uncon-

vinced by Ruckel's new proposal.
"It's still a safety issue," he told
the Beacon. "I camped out there
Monday morning and counted
traffic coming through. The traffic
issue I don't think is an issue. I
went from 6 to 8 a.m., thinking
that's the busiest time. I counted
cars in both directions. TraffEc to
the south is regulated by a light at
College Boulevard and 85. There
were bundles of cars, 10 or 11 at a
time. The in and out seems to be a
reasonable distance."
But, he said, when F-35 war-
planes begin arriving in numbers
in coming years for a new training
wing at Eglin Air Force Base, "the
number of sorties is going to pick
up drastically. When you come up
and literally triple the number, the
density is going to be pretty high.
I think we have to side with the Air

Force on this."
Namlick wasn't so sure.
"If the Air Force had their way,
they wouldn't want anyone within
50 miles of their operation," he
said. "We're basing on projected
Air Force operations, rather than
historic ones. The planning com-
mission feels we've backed away
from the R-3 to kind of head
toward where the Air Force is

going, but not giving them the

Eagles pound Daphne

to remain undefeated

49-14 victory


By Sarah Clauson
Beacon Correspond'ent
The undefeated Niceville
Eagles returned from the road
Friday to battle Daphne High
School and rallied for a victory to
go 8-0.
After their district 36-13 win
against a tough Fort Walton
Beach, the Eagles looked to keep
their winning streak going and
they did just that. Friday's 49-14
win was a testimony to an ever
consistent offense and a deter-
mined defense, which managed to
shut out the Daphne Trojans until
finally giving up points halfway
through the third quarter.
Daphne came to Niceville after
a four-game winning streak. It
matched Niceville with 16 first
downs, and was able to eamn 367
yards, but it just couldn't compete

Beacon Staff Writer
It's not everyone who gets to
march in two nationally televised
parades before she even tumns 18.
But Annie Scruggs, a 17-year-
old Niceville High School senior,
will march in her second big-
ticket parade in three years next
month as part of the Great
American Marching Band.
Annie, the captain of the
NHS color guard and the only
member who has been with it for
four years, beat out all other
Florida color guard members for
the honor of marching in the
Macy's Thanksgivinge Parade,
which will be broadcast on NBC
Nov. 26.
This year, the band will lead
the parade.
"My cousin signed up for it
last year and got selected," Annie
told the Beacon. "I marched in
the Rose Bowl Parade (with the
NHS band in 2008) and thought
it would be cool to march in
Macy's as well."
So she checked out the Web
site and found she had to submit
a video of her moves.
"My color guard instructor,
Amy Holt, and I created a rou-
tine and I sent it in," Annie said.
"About a week later, I got my
acceptance letter from them."
The competition for spots in
the parade is fierce.
"The postcards and nomina-
tion forms are sent to pretty
much all the high schools in the
United States," said Bethany
Young, event chairperson for
Music Festivals, a Reading, Pa.,

company that handles the selec-
tion of band and color guard
members. "We look at how they
do their spins, how they change
direction, their flag work and
foot movements, especially their
glide step, which is the marching
movement we use."
Young said at least one per-
former from each state must be
selected. The band numbers 225,
including about 190 musicians,
she said
Annie will take off from
Northwest Florida Regional
Airport Saturday, Nov. 21 for
New York City. Her parents will
fly up to meet her the following
Tuesday and spend the rest of
the week in the Big Apple,
The first day will be hectic
which will serve as a harbinger
of things to come.
"We'll meet at the hotel that
day to get uniforms," Annie said.

ahead of time and are expected
to have it memorized before they
arrive in New York City. "Then
they have about 16 hours of
group rehearsal over three days,"
she said. The rehearsals run eight
hours on Monday and four hours
each on Tuesday and
Wednesday, the day before the

vived the five-and-a-half-mile
Tournament of Roses Parade. "I
don't think it'll be too bad," she
said. "I think there's going to be
more tumns, but I think it'll be
fine. I won't be too exhausted."
Young said marchers can
expect to reach as many as 120
steps per minute. But, because
the parade is televised, there will
be a lot of stop and go as units
perform for the judges.
When it's all over and the
members of the band and color
guard disperse to their respective
states, Young said, "Most of the
kids are in tears because they're
leaving brand new friends." She
said some members from years
ago remain in touch through
messaging and e-mail.
Annie got interested in color
guard while she was still attend-
ing Dstdin Middle School. ad

and she told me how much fun it
was," Annie said. "I loved it so
much it became my life. That's
what I hive for.

"Over the course of the next
week, we'll have practices to
leamn the routine and music and
we'll get a tour of New York
Young said the musicians and
color guard receive their music

"As the days go on, they get
more and more exhausted, but on
the day of the parade, that adren-
aline rush hits," Young said.
Annie is undaunted by the
three-mile Macy's parade route,
perhaps because she already sur-

noted author Jeff Shaara at the Air
Force Armament Museum on Friday,

Gulf Power can coach you on lots of ways to save.
You might not realize how much hot water you use when you take a shower, because it
usually doesn t seem like much. But it s more than you might think. And if you cut back on
how long you shower, reducing the amount of hot water you use, you'll be surprised how
much money you could save. You can even install a low-flow showerhead that lets you more
easily control the amount of water that your shower puts out. These are just a couple of ways
you can change the way you look at using energy. Because a little change will do us good.

To get more energy tips and to learn about other EarthCents programs that can help you save
even more energy and money, call 1-877-655-4001 or visit us online at
