Schaetzle takes office, A-4. By Del LessardBeacon Staff Writer Niceville City Councilman Bill Smith prefiled Thursday as a candidate for the District 3 Okaloosa County Commission seat held by Commissioner Bill Roberts. If he qualifies for the 2012 ballot, Smith, running as a Republican, would have to resign his city council seat, which he has held since 2005, no later than November 2012.By Del LessardBeacon Staff Writer A Florida company has applied to open a charter elementary school next year in Valparaiso. It also is seeking approval to open a charter middle school, if demand warrants. Some parents told the Valparaiso City Commission Monday night that a charter school would fill a void created by the closure of Valparaiso Elementary School earlier this year. Victor Barroso, director of operations for a Miami-based charter school management company, Academica, said that a south Florida not-forprofit charter school company, Somerset Academy Inc., filed the applications with the Okaloosa County School District. Somerset Academy operates 33 charter schools in four Florida counties—Dade, Broward, Orange and Duval—Barroso said, with a total enrollment of more than 6,000. All of Somerset’s charter schools are rated as “A” schools by the state this year, he said, and the company has never closed or moved a school. Kaye McKinley, assistant superintendent of schools for Okaloosa County, confirmed that Somerset Academy submitted applications by the Aug. 1 annual deadline for the 2012-13 school year. She said the proposed elementary charter school application indicatBy Mike GriffithBeacon Correspondent Northwest Florida State College has awarded its former president $1.255 million to settle disputes over his dismissal and legal costs. The college board of trustees Thursday approved the agreement with James R. Richburg, who served as the institution’s president for 22 years before the board fired him in 2009. By a 7-1 vote, the board agreed to pay: —$605,000 to settle Richburg’s breach-of-contract suit alleging that he was dismissed without proper cause after being indicted on criminal charges. The charges were later dropped. The $605,000 claim is mostly covered by insurance, according to college officials. —$650,000 to reimburse Richburg for costs of successfully defending himself against the criminal charges, since the charges stemmed from his actions as college president. —An unspecified sum for other legal expenses. For his part, Richburg, of Niceville, agreed to honor a previous agreement to pay $103,333 to the NWFSC Foundation, the college’s fundraising organization. The 2009 state criminal charges against Richburg stemmed from a plan to spend $6 million in state tax money for the college to build a facility at Destin Airport. Officials said the facility, which the trustees had approved, would have been used as a college educational center, and an emergency operations center for the city of Destin. A 2009 grand jury, which also indicted Florida Speaker of the House Ray Sansom (R-Destin) and Destin developer Jay Odom, alleged that the facility was also intended to be used as an airplane hangar for Odom. Charges against all three men were dropped midway through a trial earlier this year.

COMING UP The voice of Niceville, Bluewater Bay and Valparaiso since 1992 Councilman Smith seeks county postCharter school proposed in Valp.Fire district eyes tax rateBy Mike GriffithBeacon Correspondent The East Niceville Fire Commission discussed their proposed budget for Fiscal Year 2012, and the possibility of lowering their proposed millage rate, during their regular meeting held Aug. 8. The commissioners also met the fire district’s new accountant and congratulated their newly-appointed assistant fire chief. Fire Commission Chairman Mike Marcolongo presented a proposed budget for discussion. The budget is only tentative, and may be changed during public hearings scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Sept. 7 and 21. The proposed FY 2012 budget, which would, if approved, take effect when the new fiscal year begins on the first of October, calls for $799,602 to be spent in the coming year—less than the $823,608.52 budgeted for FY 2011. The new budget includes cuts in insurance, operations and office supplies, monthly incentive pay for firefighters, and in retirement and personnel accounts. It also takes into account the pay-off of a bank loan for fire station remodeling. Commissioners also discussed the likelihood of reducing the currently-planned property tax millage rate for FY College awards Richburg $1.2 million James R.

Smith, 60, of 109 Red Maple Way, Niceville, is the director of facilities for the Okaloosa County School District. He was elected unopposed to a second four-year term on the Niceville city council in July 2009, to a term expiring in July 2013. Roberts, a two-term Republican who said he won’t seek re-election in order to run instead for the office of Okaloosa County Tax Collector, will finish his second four-year term on the county commission in November 2012. Prefiling allows political candidates to begin collecting and spending campaign money. “I’ve served the county as an employee (Director of Growth Management) and have served as a city council member,” said Smith, “and would like the opportunity to serve the people as a county commissioner.” Okaloosa County Supervisor of Elections Paul Lux said candidates who already hold Florida elective office are required by state law to submit an irrevocable letter of resignation from their elective position no later than 10 days prior to the first day of qualification for the new office being sought. The first day of qualification for Okaloosa County commission candidates is June 4, 2012. The qualifying period for county candidates in the Nov. 6, 2012, general election is June 48, 2012. Candidates submitting an irrevocable letter of resignation can set the resignation date in the future, Lux said, out as far as the first day of office if elected to the new position. Failure to submit the irrevocable letter of resignation on time results in the person automatically being removed from the old position, he said. So far, Smith faces two other Republican candidates who have also prefiled for the District 3 seat: —Nathan Boyes, of 4385 Wilkerson Bluff Road, Holt, who prefiled June 22, 2011. —Dennis Reeves, of 649 Fairway Ave., Fort Walton Beach, a city councilman in that city who prefiled July 6.

A final report on the probable cause of the crash is not expected for months. Fred Teutenberg, 42, his wife Terresa, 36, and their five children, Will, 10, Brendon 9, Ellie, 6, Peyton, 4. and Emma, 2, were killed July 9 when their twin-engine plane crashed into a wooded area less than a mile from the airport at Demopolis (Ala.) Municipal Airport. The preliminary NTSB report, released Aug. 1, gave the following account: The crash occurred about 5:40 p.m. July 9 when Fred Teutenberg’s twin-engine Cessna 421C, tail number N629TT, impacted the ground on approach to the Demopolis Municipal Airport, killing the certificated private pilot and the six family members on board. The family had departed the Creve Coeur Airport, St. Louis, Mo., about 3:20 p.m. July 9, a witness told investigators. The departure was under visual weather conditions and the pilot, Fred Teutenberg, had filed an instrument flight rules flight plan showing the DestinFort Walton Beach Airport as their destination. The plane was based at the Destin airport and was owned by Teutenberg through a limited liability company. According to preliminary information from the Federal Aviation Administration, the pilot was in cruise flight at 21,000 feet and in contact with the Atlanta air route traffic control center when he declared an emergency due to a rough running engine. He diverted to Demopolis Municipal Airport located about five miles away. The pilot was switched to Meridian Approach while descending through 17,500 feet. He subsequently confirmed that he had shut down the right engine and reported the airport in sight. The pilot was cleared for a visual approach and then approved for a frequency change to the local common traffic advisory frequency, when the airplane was about 3 miles east of the Demopolis airport. There were no further communications received from the airplane. The airplane’s radar track was consistent with an approach to Runway 22, a 5,002-foot-long, 100-foot-wide asphalt runway, when radar contact was lost at 5:39 p.m., at an altitude of 800 feet. The airplane impacted trees in a wooded area, about eighttenths of a mile north of the Runway 22 threshold. The airplane came to rest inverted, in a flat attitude, on a course of about 100 degrees. The cockpit, the cabin 40 inches forward of the tail cone, and the left wing were consumed by fire. A series of tree strikes were observed about 50 feet above the ground, about 70 feet south of the main wreckage. All major portions of the aircraft were accounted for at the accident site. All three landing gear actuators were in the extended position, and a portion of the flaps that were not damaged by the fire or impact were extended about 40 degrees. The entire right wing was separated at the root and the right engine propeller was at or near a feathered position. The left engine and propeller were fire damaged. Initial examination of the airframe and left engine did not reveal any catastrophic inflight mechanical failures; however, after the right engine fuel pump was removed, “significant damage was observed on the camshaft gear teeth.” Maintenance records revealed the airplane’s most recent annual inspection was performed Jan. 19, 2011. The NTSB retained the wreckage, including both engines and propellers, for further investigation, according to the NTSB report.

ment agreement during a meeting Thursday at the main college campus in Niceville, the trustees met for about an hour with attorneys in a session closed to the press or public. Following the closed session, the trustees reconvened in a public meeting, during which college attorney Dena Sokolow briefly reviewed provisions of the agreement. The trustees then voted to approve the agreement, with one dissenting vote from trustee Wesley Wilkerson. Neither Richburg nor his lawyer attended the sessions. None of the trustees Thursday gave any further statement or explanation concerning their reasons for approving the agreement, nor did Wilkerson offer any explanation for his dissenting vote. Wilkerson, who was chairman of the board when it voted 4-3 to fire Richburg in April 2009, was also in the minority in that vote. Richburg declined a Beacon invitation to comment on Monday. The agreement between Richburg and the college includes a provision stating, “The parties agree to execute a joint press release in a form to be agreed to by and between the parties. Parties agree to confine their statements to the terms of the press release.” The press release consisted of only a short, two-paragraph statement announcing the agreement, but which did not specify any of the monetary amounts involved, nor how much of the college’s payments will be funded by taxpayers, student tuition and fees, donors to the NWFSC Foundation, or other sources, except to say that, “Dr. Richburg will receive certain severance compensation, which will be paid almost entirely by the college’s insurance, and he will drop all claims for past wages and benefits.” The amount of insurance was not specified in either the press release or the agreement between Richburg and the college, although according to the discussion among the trustees and Sokolow during the public meeting, the insurance will cover most of the compensation to Richburg, while the college itself must pay Richburg’s costs for defending himself against the criminal charges. The agreement also states, “The college shall pay the full cost of the mediation of the litigation” between the college and Richburg, but did not specify an amount. Separately, the Florida Commission on Ethics, meeting July 29 in Tallahassee, dismissed an ethics complaint against Richburg. Valparaiso resident Allen Vafides filed the complaint two years ago alleging that Richburg, while president of Northwest Florida State College, violated Florida statute 112.313(7)(a) by having a conflicting employment or contractual relationship. After conducting its own investigation the Florida Commission on Ethics found no probable cause to believe that Richburg had a prohibited conflict of interest because of his association with a banking company that also involved an individual whose architectural firm had a business relationship or contract with NWFSC.

During th eir previous meeting Monday, July 11, the commissioners had tentatively set their fire district’s property tax millage rate for the coming fiscal year at 2.37, slightly above the current rate of 2.35. They emphasized then, however, that the tentative rate is just that—tentative—and can be lowered if commissioners determine that the fire district will not need all the revenue likely to be generated at the higher rate. The proposed millage rate, if actually approved at subsequent fire commission meetings, would mean that property owners in the East Niceville Fire District, which extends from the eastern city limits of the city of Niceville to the shore of Rocky Bayou, would pay $2.37 in property tax for every $1,000 of taxable value of their property, after homestead exemptions and other deductions. For example, the owner of a home appraised at $200,000 of taxable value would pay $474 in property tax to the fire district, in addition to other property taxes collected by the county, such as county and Okaloosa School District taxes. At the current millage rate of 2.35, such a homeowner pays the fire district $470. At Monday’s meeting, Marcolongo told fellow commissioners that at a millage rate of 2.35, property tax revenues plus carryover funds from FY 2011, plus interest and miscellaneous revenue, will be about $801,797—enough to cover the proposed budget.

The school district process for approving a charter school could take up to a year, she said. Okaloosa County has three public school charters: Liza Jackson in Fort Walton Beach, Collegiate High School in Niceville, and Okaloosa Academy, a school for students who have trouble in conventional schools. Charter schools, although they receive public funding, are independently operated and generally aren’t subject to the union contracts governing work, tenure and pay that apply to most public schools. Barroso said that Somerset Academy submitted the applications to meet the annual deadline and be prepared—if demand for an Okaloosa charter school is realized, and if everything else falls in place, including rental of a facility such as Valparaiso Elementary— to open a charter school as early as the 2012 school year. Opening a middle school in addition to an elementary charter school would depend on parental demand, he said. Citing falling enrollment, the school district closed Valparaiso Elementary in May, moving its students to Lewis Middle School, also in Valparaiso. The district has not announced any plans for the now-vacant buildings. The Valparaiso City Commission earlier this year voted to study the possibility of opening a charter school at the location. During a Valparaiso City Commission meeting Monday, some employees of Lewis School, including Principal Mike Fantaski, warned that a new charter school in the city competing wth Lewis would drain students from the district-operated school, possibly causing it to close as well. Barroso said that current charter schools operated by Somerset Academy cover all sorts of combinations, including K-5 elementaries, high schools and K-12 schools. Some of Somerset’s charter schools operate profitably with as few as 200 students, he said. All of their schools are accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS), he said, and Somerset Academy was the first charter school system in the country given “district accreditation.” That means, he said, that a new Somerset Academy charter school here or anywhere else would begin on Day 1 as an accredited public school, a distinction that would allow a new school to begin applying immediately for grant monies. As other charter schools in the state, Somerset Academy operates on what the state pays public schools for each full-time equivalent student, less a small fee charged by the school district, he said. Like any public school, parents pay no tuition, Barroso said. They also have parental contracts, requiring parents to commit to so many hours per month with their children. The schools also have a policy of school uniforms, he said Barroso said Somerset Academy schools enjoy extracurricular activities such as sports and band—if the parents of students want the services. They also provide a hot lunch program but do not operate their own transportation system. Somerset began in 1997 as a not-for-profit charter school organized for about 50 students, Barroso said, and two years later hired Academica to provide management support. As a charter school management company, Academica oversees about 40,000 students in 90 schools across the nation, according to Ana Monia Martinez, the company’s chief financial officer, including schools in Florida, Texas, Alabama, Utah, Texas and in Los Angeles. If everything falls into place— including demand from local parents materializing—Somerset Academy could open in Valparaiso as early as next year, Barroso said. But a lot remains to be settled beside parent interest, he said, including a facility to rent.

Police conducted a search of Nieft’s vehicle after a police drug K-9 “alerted” on the vehicle and found three baggies of marijuana, one containing 2 grams, another 3 grams and the last 25 grams of marijuana, as well as two scales containing marijuana residue, two glass jars containing marijuana residue, rolling papers and several other plastic baggies containing marijuana residue.

Bogdahn also admitted concocting a story that his girlfriend’s injuries were the result of a road rage incident in the county. Because of the untrue account the sheriff’s department initially investigated the alleged road rage incident, but the victim told investigators that Bogdahn had stabbed her following an argument over her medication and the fact she wanted to leave Bogdahn.

BLOTTERFrom page A-6 By Del LessardBeacon Staff Writer A Niceville man, arrested on charges of exploiting a 94year-old widow took money from her and used it to buy drugs, according to an Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office arrest report. Richard Scott Chancey, 46, of 211 Edrehi Drive, Niceville, was arrested by sheriff’s deputies July 31 on charges of fraud, 20 counts, theft, 20 counts, and exploitation of the elderly, 20 counts, according to the arrest report. An arrest report from the sheriff’s office gave the following account: Chancey is accused of defrauding the woman, who lives in Baker, of as much as $4,500 between April 15 and June 12. The manager of a Baker grocery store became concerned when Chancey kept coming in to cash checks from the victim. The victim said Chancey told her he was using the money to help find some rings which had been stolen from her. The rings were not only valuable in their own right, but also they were gifts from her deceased husband and had great sentimental value. Chancy allegedly admitted to sheriff’s deputies that he told the victim he could help her get her rings back if she paid him, but each time he got cash or a check from her, he said he used the money to get information on the rings and to buy drugs from drug dealers. As of Monday Chancey was being held at the Okaloosa County Jail in lieu of $60,000 bail bond.

Parenting is more than using power to get children to behave in certain ways. Parenting is about the exposure and change of the childs heart. When the heart of a child changes, the behavioral change that is needed will last. Learn how to be an instrument of heart changing grace in the little moments of life that God gives parents with their children. Tripp will present a picture for Gods design for the family. Then, he will explain the lifetransforming and agendasetting things that the Bible says about the heart. He will apply the principles about the family and the heart to three primary stages of parenting. Tripp will illuminate the key issue of focus and practical steps for achieving what is important, at each particular stage of a childs growth and spiritual development. He will share ways to identify when a parent may be in the way of what God is calling for, rather than being part of it, by helping attendees locate personal heart issues. This conference is geared toward parents with children of all ages. The conference will work to spread the word of John 3:14, "I have no greater joy than this, to hear of my children walking in the truth." Although the verse refers to spiritual children, the same hope can be applied to physical children. The conference will be held at Rocky Bayou Baptist Church Friday, Aug. 19-Saturday, Aug. 20. The cost is $10 per participant, and child care is available for children as old as 12 for $5 per child for the entirety of the conference, $20 max per family. Register for the conference by going to the Rocky Bayou Baptist Church website and clicking on Events and Registrations. Paul David Tripp is the president and founder of Paul Tripp Ministries. He started the Ministries with the aim of "Connecting the transforming power of Jesus Christ to everyday life." Tripp and his wife, Luella, along with their four children, live in Philadelphia.

Andrea Nichole Justice and Brandon James Haugan Weddings Niceville High welcomes freshmen Niceville High School recently held its three-day freshmen orientation, NEST (New Eagles Soaring Together). According to Lynn Prevatte, Student Government Association sponsor, more than 350 ninth graders attended, and the group leaders were blown away by their enthusiasm. The program was created to introduce incoming Niceville freshmen to the experiences and opportunities that await them. "The Eagle NEST symbolizes how all incoming freshmen are entering an exciting and important phase of their life….high school," said Prevatte. Students had the opportunity to meet teachers, administrators, other members of their class, and upperclassmen who shared advice. They also participated in team-building activities; learned about high school life—clubs, traditions, teams, school spirit and extracurriculars. They also learned about graduating with a plan for the future, and in general learned how to become a Niceville Eagle. "This year, we are looking for a NEST Leader of the Year," said Prevatte. "If your child attended NEST, please ask him or her to email me at prevattel@mail.okaloosa.k12.f and nominate the name of their favorite leader with a short explanation for their choice (something specific that the leader did). The winner will be announced when school begins and the leader with the most votes will win a gift certificate to Beef O'Brady's." Prevatte went on to remind all incoming freshmen who may still be a little nervous about attending High School that all of the NEST leaders will be wearing their safetyorange shirts on the first day of school and any one of those students will be glad to help. "The motto for NEST is 'Meet your class. Know what to expect. Love your school,'” said Prevatte. “We hope those goals were met, and we look forward to a wonderful school year!"

James Van Steenburg, the HDR construction manager for the Mid-Bay Bridge Authority, said Thursday that rainy weather the previous week-and-a-half prevented planned paving work by the contractor, Anderson Columbia, delaying the planned extension of the bypass northward to Range Road. The MBBA connector road is being built in three phases. Phase 1 is a 2.8-mile segment that will be completed when the connector is open to motorists from the northern end of the toll bridge to Range Road. The first 1.5-mile segment of Phase 1 from the bridge toll plaza to the Highway 20 interchange opened to the public May 12 as a four-lane road. When the connector road is opened to Range Road in the near future, northbound motorists will be merged from four lanes to two lanes just north of the Highway 20 overpass, Van Steenburg explained. Since the overpass across Range Road is part of Phase 2 work, motorists will exit or enter Range Road from the singlelane entry/exit ramps on either side of the planned overpass. When Phase 2 and 3, both currently under construction, are completed in 2014, the connector road from Range Road north and west to highways 285 and 85, will also open as twolane highways, Van Steenburg said. A new opening date extending the connector road to Range Road has not yet been announced.
