First meeting of College Avenue


Complex Committee draws crowd


By LEAH STRATMANN
An official committee, ap-
pcinited by the Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners to discuss
the use of the College Avenue
Complex for recreational
purposes drew a big crowd at
the first meeting on Dec. 8.
"I was unexpectedly
elected chairman," laughed
J.B. Hillard. "You show up a
meeting with an armload of
papers" and they elect you
chairman."
Other members of the
committee are Walton
County Commissioner Ken
Pridgen, Shirl Williams, as-
sistant county administrator,
Sara Commander, the
county's Public Information
coordinator, Kim Presnell,
DeFuniak Springs city man-
ager, and area residents
Mary Lind Devlin, Marvin
Campbell and the Rev.
Ernest Underwood.
The property the group
has been asked to evaluate
for recreational' purposes is
the old hospital on College
Avenue. According to Hillard,
there are three adjoining lots
there, one of which is referred
to as the Gillis property,
which is owned by the county,
the space where the hospital
was and an office building
which currently houses the-
supervisor of elections, citi-


zens services and veterans
affairs. Once the courthouse
renovations have been com-
pleted, it is expected the
three county offices will be
moved from the office com-
plex.
S"We have been called to-
gether as a committee to dis-
cuss use of the property for
recreation purposes. One
topic around the community
for the last several years is
to make it into a senior cen-
ter for active seniors," Hillard
,said.,
To date, no.decisions have
been made on what to do.
with the property. About a'
year ago, the city of DeFu-
niak Springs voted to accept.
the old hospital property if it.
was offered to them by the
county, but that offer has not
been forthcoming, according
to Hillard..

There were 'some other
suggestions about possible
uses for the site that did not
include a senior center, such
as a shelter for battered
women or abused children..
However, the majority of the
attendees clearly favored the
senior recreation center idea.
Several questions about fi-
nancial responsibility need to
be answered if the property
-is offered to the city by the
county.


"The other two pieces of
property, the Gillis property
and the Warren Building
were not part of the city vote.
This is a new recommenda-
tion that all three be put to-
gether for future expansion.
All together this would pro-
vide two to three acres of
space," Hillard said.

As the properties in ques-,
tion are in a residential
neighborhood, some citizens
from the area came to the
meeting. "The neighbors are
wary about what goes into
that property," Hillard com-
mented, "but a senior opera-
tion is going to be low key
and primarily a daytime op-
eration."
Hillard later expressed
surprise at the high turnout
of the meeting, but com-
mented the citizenry "saw an
opportunity to turn out for a
positive thing for the commu-
nity and they did. Nobody
gets excited about govern-
ment issues, but the way se-
nior citizens turned out the
other night, this could be a
real winner. My personal
view is to make this place
attractive to baby boonmers. I
think we need to think long
term," he said.
"People will be looking for
social aiii'.ities to attracti
them and right now we have


absolutely nothing in DeFu-
niak Springs. We need people
to come in her and grow this
town," he said.
Hillard conceded that if
the property is given to the
city, how it will. operate and
who will pay the bills is go-
ing to be a major issue. The
details ofadministration will
have to be worked out be-
tween the city and the
.county. "In the last year,
there has been more commu-
nication between city offi-
cials and county officials
than I have seen in the last
10 years. Whatever they do
will be a mutual agreenient
between the two.governing
bodies.
"It's not that big a build-
ing, but the potential is
great," he said. Hillard is do-
ing his homework, too, check-
ing facts and potentialuses
of the space through the El-
der Affairs section of
my.florida. com. "We are go-
ing to use their studies to
help us put together a plan,"
he said.
Hillard said the next step
is to make a formal recom-
mendation to the county
commissioners. "'We got a
good group of people. If the
public sees the cooperation
between the city and the
,'uunt., public iUterust will
grow."

.MUSCOGEE CRAFTS, GAMES, AND APPAREL on dis-
play at council house.


Muscogee


Nation hosts open


house in Bruce


By BRUCE COLLIER
The Muscogee Nation of
Florida, also known ,as the
Florida Tribe of Eastern
CI-ck Indians, held an open,
house at the tribal council
house in Bruce. The all-day
affair took place on Saturday,
December 10.
Attending the event were
tribal chairwoman Ann
Denson Tucker, treasurer
Zera Pate Denson (Tucker's
mother), council representa-
tive Margi Ward Gatti, and
the tribe's traditional chief,
Daniel Penton.
Guests included Frances
Battise of the Alabama
Couchatta tribe, and Ernest
Sickey of the Louisiana
Couchatta tribe, both part of
the Muscogee nation.
According to Tucker, the
Creek/Muscogee originally
lived in Georgia, then even-
tually moved, or were made
to move, south into Alabama
and Floirida.
As a result of this migra-
tion, and the rapid changes


in Florida over the past cer-
tury, the Muscogeee have had
to struggle to maintain their
traditions as best they cai.
The council building, built
in the last 19th century, was
formerly an Indian school.
DensGio, Who posed for a pho-
tograph ait her old desk, was
one of the principals of the
school.
The building is now the
seat of government for the
tribe, and houses a small
museum, tribal resource cen-
ter, and gift shop. At election
time, the building also serves
as the voting place for Pre-
cinct 13.
Tucker's duties as chair-
woman of the tribe, an
elected position, are mainly
political. She spends a good
deal of time in state and fed-
eral government offices, pur-
suing tribal interests.
Penton's job as traditional
chief is both.ceremonial and
historical. He serves as a con-

Christmas Reflections makes



the holiday season bright


By BILL VORWALD
On a clear and crisp De-
cember evening, Howard
Rinker, chairman of the
Christmas Reflections Com-
mittee, briefs a family of vol-
unteers that will welcome
visitors, collect the entrance
fee, and answer any ques-
tions. Rinker rotates this
duty with Luther Ates every
night from November 27 un-
til the New Year's Eve.
Ten minutes prior to the
starting time of 5 p.m., folks
are already lined up to travel
around Circle Drive and mar-
vel at nearly three and one-
quarter million lights ar-


ranged to brighten the holi-
day season. The lighting and
displays are actually grouped
by themes. Patriotic flags
and characters are in one lo-
cation, followed by Victorian
'figures, and more traditional
scenes appear, as the visitor
makes the loop.
SThough the Lakeyard has
reached capacity, new dis-
plays are constantly added,
with older ones relocated or
being replaced. This year's
special features are a
brightly lit ferris wheel near
the Chautauqua Hall of
Brotherhood and the annual
memorial to Ms. Rubye Bur-


ton, placed across the street
from her home.
A project of this size is not
without its problems.
Rinker is backed by a com-
mittee of six, which includes
Ates and the only paid mem-
ber, Jim Ash, who receives a
small stipend to serve as the
overseer of daily mainte-
nance. A corps of volunteers,
from local organizations,
churches and individuals,
assist throughout the
evening.
Ash and the volunteers
must attend to over eleven
miles of connected drop
cords, continuously replace


burnt or damaged lights, re-
pair wiring frayed by squir-
rels (the biggest problem)
and, unfortunately, correct
the effects of theft and van-
dalism.
However, all this hard
work, preparation and main-
tenance has created a sight
that draws visitors from
many surrounding communi-
ties, as well as the home town
folks.
Rinker said he has seen
the season's attendance level
peaking in the last few years
at approximately 17,000. He

By TAMMY KEARCE
The DeFuniak Springs
City Council recently
granted approval for a used
car lot and detail shop at 37
North 9 th street. Housed in
the former Taylor Parts
building, the lot will sell
scooters, both new and used,
in addition to used cars. Mi-
nor automotive maintenance
and detailingwill also be per-
formed.
Owner Bob Jones peti-
tioned the council for a vari-
ance to operate the business
in a C-l commercial re-
stricted zone, since the pro-
posed use of the building did
not comply with established
restrictions. The C-l re-
stricted designation is in-
tended to apply to retail
shopping areas such as of-
fices, retail stores and banks,
but City Planner Larry
Laird, who has been in con-
tact with Jones, assured the
council that noise would be
minimal and repairs minor.
Council members voted 4-
1 in favor of the variance,
with Councilman Mark
Anderson casting the dis-


senting vote.
The council also approved
a master plan and first phase
of Hunter Ridge Subdivision,
which will soon begin devel-
opment south of Walton
Road. Plans include 201
home sites, complete with
paved roads, sidewalks and
city utilities.-During phase
one, 25 sites will be sold and
homes built. Project Builder
Michael Jenkins estimates
that the average home will be
1800-2000 square feet with
an attached two-car garage.
"We want to provide quality
housing at a reasonable price
here in DeFuniak Springs,"
said Project Builder Michael
Jenkins, "because we are in
this for the long haul."

Although the city requires
that five percent of the sub-
division be dedicated to rec-
reational space, with the
development's proximity to
Wee Care park, it was agreed
that sidewalks to the park,
which would actually repre-
sent six percent of land use,
would be more productive
and pedestrian friendly.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


PERSONAL COMMENTS



Editor s comment



They said what?


By RON KELLEY

Like most people who follow what politicians say, as op-
posed to what they do, I find recent comments by national
politicians to be a source of endless amusement.
For instance, remember the "Bridge to Nowhere," one piece
of the most bloated, pork-barrel transportation budget bill
in history that passed this year?
That portion of the bill had to do with $223 million that
was earmarked to build a bridge in Alaska to connect
Ketchikan and Gravina Island, where only about 50 people
live. Oink, oink!
The public raised such a fuss that lawmakers made a big
show of rescinding the porky plan. What you did not hear is
that the money was not returned, it was simply transferred
to Alaska anyway, so those politicians can decided for them-
selves where to spend the money, without any federal over-
sight. Sweet, huh?
How about that deficit-reduction bill that was passed in




Editor,
Reflections are the subject of this "Letter to the Editor". I
remember years ago when.the commercial bingo parlors
became a hot subject. The Veterans of Foreign Wars opposed
commercial bingo parlors coming into DeFuniak Springs.
An attorney represented a bingo parlor operation and the
VFW turned out in force to oppose the request for a license.
In my heart of hearts, I knew that this was wrong to deny
someone the right to operate a legitimate business, but I
had to think of the many people and a lot of kids who would
lose the help they received from the profits of the bingo
games.
The worse scenario happened some years ago when an
operator simply opened in Mossy Head and what was pre-
dicted, happened. Soon following, a dance hall operator
opened a dance hall in the Woodlawn community and that'
was the deathblow to the VFW income to support their many
charities.
Back then, VFW Post 4437 supported the Little League,
Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Civil Air Patrol, the high school
band with uniforms and musical instruments, college grants,
"Freedom" speech contests (local, state and national), trans-
portation for disabled/low-income sick, veterans to the VA
hospital and clinics, Thanksgiving and Christmas baskets
for the poor and/or needy, Christmas parties for disabled
veterans, visits in mass with personal hygiene kits, under-
" wear and fresh fruit to the VA hospital in Biloxi; MS. every
'90 days, and hosts of charitable deeds for crutches, wheel-
chairs, a utility payment, gas money, rent payment or a bus
ticket to get home. The VFW worked hand in hand with
church groups, Sharing & Caring and the Red Cross.
Today, the VFW Post 4437 is just about broke. The com-
mercial bingo parlors are gone, the Woodlawn band and
dance is gone. The reason why the VFW was so successful
is that all their labor was donated by the veterans them-
selves and all the money received as result of the bingo and
dances went to their many charities. You could attend VFW
bingo and dances and all the money you spent came back to
the community. The real losers were the recipients we sup-
ported.
The VFW would like you to know that they are going to
revive the bingo games and the dance band. My appeal to

the House in November? Reducing the deficit is a great thing,
isn't it? Yes, it is, even if it comes too late to prevent our
current record-breaking budget deficit. The idea here is to
spend $50 billion less than normal over the next five years.
What is not too great is the fact that a huge portion of the
money will come from, as usual, the people with the least
political and the ones who will suffer the most. Nearly $13
billion of the planned $50 billion savings will come from
cutting Medicaid and food stamps.
Strangely, despite not having had a single, reported case
in America, the House voted down a bill to cut $8 billion in
funding to fight bird flu. I wonder if Medicaid will pay if an
elderly person actually contracts the bird flu. Hmmm:
Whether or not the final version of this bill will also in-
clude approval for drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife
Refuge (and circumventing the ban on drilling off Florida
shores) remains to be seen.
What does deficit reduction have to do with oil-drilling,
you ask? Nothing. It's just one of the clever things that poli-




Dear Editor
My wife and I have done much of our shopping at the lo-
cal Wal-Mart store since moving here almost four years ago.
We like the people there and have nothing against any of
them.
However, since the national Wal-Mart policy is now to take
the secular position of excluding reference to the words,
"Christmas" and "Merry Christmas" at this time of the year
in favor of the politically-correct "Happy Holidays," we are
making a change.
We spend over $1,000 a month in that store, but are not
doing so this December. Since we buy Christmas presents
and not "holiday" presents, we are now shopping elsewhere.
We will return to Wal-Mart in January...maybe.

Editor:
Last night, I attended the meeting of the College Avenue neigh-
borhood group. The purpose of the meeting was advertised to be a
discussion of the best uses for the old hospital property. This turned
out to not be the case. No ideas were entertained that did not sup-
port utilization of the entire property, to include the Warren build-
ing, hospital property and the Gillis home, for a park and senior
center. .
,:, In an earlier e-mail, I had suggested additional or alterrn3at,.e
uses for the property. An attempt to enumerate these at the meet-
ing was met by a refusal to hear them or to consider having them
in the neighborhood.
Prior to razing of the old hospital, a committee was formed,to
determine a use for that facility. Through several meetings, essen-
tially the same exercise that occurred at last night's meeting was
repeated. The residents of the neighborhood refused to entertain
any arrangements that would have called for a sharing of the
property with other agencies.
This meeting provided the revelation that, in a county where
three domestic violence incidents in less than a year, two in the
last month, resulted in murder and suicide, a county that lacks a
Shelter House and a Children's Advocacy Center, the greatest need
is a senior center and a park.
As a bit of history, the original intent was to convert the hospital
to an assisted living facility that people of limited resources could
afford. Senator Peaden had arranged to provide funds to get the
project off of the ground and to provide funding in the out years.
In a gesture that I considered insulting, a majority of commission-
ers on a prior board rejected the funding and reversed field with
the intent of using the building for county offices. The idea proved
to be not feasible due to structural inadequacies. The end result of
this ill-conceived plan resulted in the hospital being demolished,
at considerable cost, and the possibility for an assisted living facil-
ity was lost; as was the opportunity to provide additional resources
that are needed in the county.
Many of the activities voiced as being desirable for inclusion in
the senior center are already being provided or are in develop-
ment. As a matter of fact, the Council on Aging operates two se-
nior centers. Admittedly they are not as palatial as that envisioned
by the College Avenue contingency, but they provide many of the
activities mentioned at the meetings as being desirable. These cen-
ters can be expanded and they are located so as to be accessible to
a larger number of people than a center located at the old hospital
site would be. The major ingredient that seems to be missing is
exclusivity. Additionally, the recreation department is working to
provide many of the activities being requested. It is inefficient and
monetarily wasteful to have the county contributing resources to
parallel efforts working to provide the same results.
Among those things the county is badly in need of are Children's
Advocacy Center; Shelter House; expansion of the Children's Visi-
tation Center, and assisted living facility.
The opinion was expressed that these entities do not belong in a
neighborhood setting.
Since none of them generate a great amount of traffic and do riot
present a danger to the community, I can only assume that the
objection is to the patrons. This seems odd since these patrons are
already living among us. They consist of our friends, our sons,
daughters and grandchildren.
When the Walton County Board of County Commissioners de-
leted the old hospital from consideration for an assisted living fa-
cility, one commissioner made the grandiose statement that the
board would provide the funds to build such a facility. This has
never been acted upon.
Walton County assisted in the construction of the Children's
Advocacy Center in Niceville. Time and distance makes the use of
that facility by Walton County clients and caseworkers impracti-
cal. Walton County needs, at the very least, an annex.
The existing Children's Visitation Center in Walton County is
inadequate to the need, and as commercial development progresses,
it will have to be relocated.
A Shelter House is needed in the county. There were 540 re-
ported cases of domestic violence in the county last year; three of
which resulted in murder and suicide. One murder was a young
girl. These figures do not include the number of unreported cases,
which, according to crime statistics, is many times larger.
A senior center would be a desirable asset' in: Walton County.
However, due to the size of the county, demographics and limited
mobility'of some of the intended clientele, more than one center is
needed. It would provide greater benefits if the existing centers
were enhanced. The original concept for the Wee-Care Park, lo-
cated near Walton High School, included amenities specifically
targeted toward seniors. The park is being developed in phases. It
would demonstrate greater fiscal responsibility to push forward
on those amenities intended for and designed to provide for our
seniors.

ticians like to do when they think no one is looking. They'll
tack an unpopular bill onto a popular one that's sure to pass
- thereby achieving an otherwise impossible goal.
You have to admire their cleverness and audacity, if not
their integrity.
Then there are the 'He Said- He Said' press statements.
For instance, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld stated
at a November press conference that troops witnessing pris-
oner abuse had no obligation to stop it, only to report it.
However, General Peter Pace, Chairman of the Joint
Chiefs of Staff corrected Rumsfeld saying, "Sir, they have
an obligation to try to stop it."
Regarding accusations that the Bush administration had
deliberately misrepresented the intelligence used to declare
war upon Iraq, Vice President Dick Cheney said, "The presi-
dent and I cannot prevent certain politicians from losing
their memory or their backbone, but we're not going to sit
by and let them rewrite history."
In response, Pennsylvania Congressman John Murtha,
who is a decorated war veteran, referred to Cheney's sitting
out the Vietnam War, saying, "I like guys who got five defer-
ments and never been there and send people to war and
then don't like to hear suggestions on what needs to be done."
Murtha was one of the House members who recently called
for the withdrawal of troops from Iraq.
With his approval ratings at an all-time low, President
Bush is making a concerted effort to regain the public's sup-
port of his handling of the war in Iraq. Starting with tough-
talking speeches in locations where he's certain to be well-
received, such as the Naval Academy at Annapolis, MD.,
Bush has been'touting his "Plan for Victory."
However, that rhetoric flies in the face of the
administration's plan to withdraw U.S. troops before the
2006 midterm House and Senate elections.
Obviously, there's no shortage of rhetoric on the political
stage and no shortage of politicians willing to say one thing
and do another.
In closing, I'll leave you with a quote from George Orwell,
author of 1984, the classic novel about the complete and
total enslavery of a once-freenation through the unchecked
granting of limitless power to its government.
Orwell said, "In times of universal deceit, telling the truth
will be a revolutionary act,"

Where the rubber

By KEN LITTLE
Director of Citizen Services
Within 1,066 square miles
of area, there are 1,000 miles
of county roadways that must
be maintained, paved or re-
surfaced. State and federal
highways are maintained by
the Florida Department of
Transportation, but all
county roads must be main-
tained by the county.

According to the Christian
Coalition of Florida, the Sen-
ate won the tug of war with
House, leading the way for
Vegas-style casinos. After
overnight negotiations, the
Florida House and Senate
reached a compromise that
legalizes Vegas-style slot
machines for the first time in
Florida.
"Today's vote is nothing
less than a welcome mat for
Vegas-styles casinos. I am
disappointed that the Senate
seemed to be more interested
in meeting the demands of
the casinos rather than pro-
tecting the citizens of


Florida", said Bill Stephens,
executive director of the
Christian Coalition of
Florida.
"Basing government rev-
enue on the vices of people is
not good policy, and that's
exactly what this legislation
does. My only conclusion is
that the casino interests
seem to have the ears of too
many of our Senators," stated
Stephens.
Stephens said the Chris-
tian Coalition of Florida in-
tends on working toward a
repeal of the constitutional
amendment that legalized
slot machines.

REFLECTIONS

refers to four years of data
collected by a brief survey,
taken at the entrance station.
The survey has helped him
determine that there have
been fewer new visitors. For-
tunately, this has been bal-
anced by an increase in
people returning to see the
lights year after year. Rinker
uses this information to pre-
dict future attendance and
adjust the event's budget.


From Front

In an effort to improve
awareness of this year's
Christmas Reflections, an
announcement was sent to
nearly all churches in north-
west Florida. The results
have been successful, with
several bus loads of folks
making the trip to view the
lights. Other organizations
have also turned their visit
into a special outing. A
Mercedes-Benz club travels


ARMY AVIATION CREDIT UNION will be giving away a
new Benelli Nova Pumpfield and slug combo-12 gauge shot-
gun on Dec. 19, just in time for Christmas. Don't have to
be present to win.
Stop by Army Aviation Credit Union in DeFuniak Springs
and get one chance to win for a $5 donation, or five chances
to win for $20 donation.
AACFCU would also like to thank Po Boys gun shop for
generously donating this fine item. The gun can be viewed
at Po' Boys at 707 Hwy. 331 S, in DeFuniak Springs.


together from Ft. Walton
Beach, dines in a local restau-
rant, then takes a lap around
Circle Drive, one car follow-
ing another. Motorcycle clubs
also regularly attend.
Raising the entrance fee to
$3 per person has increased
revenue, which must be used
to pay an electric bill of al-
most $7,000 and a $10,000
charge for advertising by the
South Walton Tourist Devel-
opment Council.

Even with these expenses,
Christmas Reflections has
finished its short month "in
the black." This is also due to
the generosity of local donors
and hours of hard assembly
work by inmates from the
Walton Correctional Institu-
tion and the county jail facil-
ity.
Thanks to the vision in the
late 1990s of John and Peggy
Sims, and the hard work and


planning by Howard Rinker
and the committee over the
years, DeFuniak Springs has
something very special of
which they can be proud.
With strong support from the
members of the community,
the public will continue to
enjoy this light show.
Christmas Reflections is
open, rain or shine, from 5
p.m. to 9 p.m. until Dec. 31.
Tickets are $3 per person.
Children six and younger are
admitted free. Season passes
are $25 and allow holders to
tour the lights as often as
they wish. Passes are avail-
able at various local restau-
rants and businesses, the
DeFuniak Springs City Hall,
the Walton County Chamber
of Commerce office in the
Chautauqua building, and
the Circle Drive entrance
booth.
One unique way to see the
lights is by horse-drawn car-


riage. Rides depart from the
Chautauqua building. Each
carriage is available for a fee
every night from 5 to 9 p.m.,
with the last ride leaving at
8:30.
Although there is a fee to


view the lights, the pleasure
of a crisp December night, a
child's delight over the daz-
zling confection of colors, and
the warmth of the enduring
spirit of Christmas are for-
ever free to everyone.

Another year has come and gone and we hope that you are better off for the wear. We

wanted to take this opportunity to thank everyone that called upon us to fix their central

heating & cooling systems in 2005. Thank You! We are looking forward to 2006 and hoping to

meet more folks that come to find out that we do business professionally with integrity and

honesty. The referrals that bring in our new clients have been wonderful and we are aiming

to keep earning the phrase, "not just recommended, but highly recommended."



It is our desire that everyone comes to find more peace, discovers more grace

and experiences more joy in the coming new year.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, DECEMBER 15, 2005

Walton County Chamber of Commerce

announce new Chamber initiatives


The First Friday Breakfast
and Luncheon of the Walton
County Chamber of Com-
merce held December 2 an-
nounced that they would be
launching five new chamber
initiatives for the 2005-2006
program year.
Chamber president &
CEO, Dawn Moliterno, pre-
sented to the membership
five distinct initiatives that
the organization would em-
bark on throughout the next
10 months. The first initia-
tive was to rebrand the cor-
porate identity of the cham-
ber and launch a new logo
and tagline. Bohan, the same
agency that designed the
Walton County Tourist De-
velopment Council and the
Walton County logo donated
their services.
The new logo contains a
compass which stands for
guidance, direction and lead-
ership making it the perfect
symbol for the Walton
County Chamber of Com-
merce. "This creative design
truly embodies the essence of
the organization and what
we stand for, creating a pro-
business climate," stated


Community

Calendar

A TURKEY SHOOT will be
held December 25, and Janu-
ary 1, 2006 at Hogan Drive
in Ponce de Leon, starting at
1 p.m.
For more information call
836-4826, ask for Roy.

THE NORTH WALTON
COUNTY REPUBLICAN
CLUB will not meet at the
regular time in December.
Due to busy schedules, the
meeting has been cancelled.
Regular monthly meetings
will resume in January, 2006,
on the 2nd. There will be.no
speaker. This meeting will be
a strategy meeting to decide
future plans.


Rick Severance, chairman of
the Walton County Chamber
of Commerce.
The second initiative was
a new Tiered Investment
Membership model which
will take effect December 15,
2005. "This model allows us
to match our products and
services to the deliverables
that our members want and
need," said Moliterno. In-
stead of the current flat-rate
and "fair share formula"
structure, the new strategy is
based on tiers of membership
commitment. Specific mem-
bership benefits are bundled
into five tiers. As the tiers
progress, the bundles of
membership benefits accu-
mulate. Thus, at the highest
tier, a member can access
every benefit and service of-
fered by the Walton County
Chamber of Commerce.
New programs and ser-
vices have been created and
placed into each tier. The
bundles of new and existing
programs add more value to
chamber membership. "Un-
like our current dues struc-
ture, the new strategy is flex-
ible. Each member can cus-
tomize their membership
commitment by moving into
higher tiers. This allows
members to choose the ben-
efits they want, and does not
restrict members to certain
benefits," Moliterno said.
The third initiative was the


redesign of the chamber
website. The chamber
wanted to positively portray
its members, community, and
chamber while providing a
portal which will allow two
way communication, solid
business services and unique
marketing opportunities,
Moliterno claims.
An example of some of the
unique features includes:
* Interactive Chamber Mem-
bership Directory
* Branded Mapping
* E-Commerce Module
* Things to Do and See Mod-
ule
* Interactive Itinerary Plan-
ner
* Real Time Weather
* Community Calendar
* Survey Management
* National Business News
Module
* Job Posting Module
* "I Want To" Feature
The fourth initiative was
THE Business Journal, a
publication of the Walton
County Chamber of Com-
merce and the Daily News,
serving the Greater Walton
Region. THE Business Jour-
nal will replace the
chamber's monthly newslet-
ter and will be 24 pages of full
color in a magazine style pub-
lication.
THE Business Journal will
be distributed monthly to the
chamber's membership and
through the Daily News in

"The magazine will focus on
the pro-business activity
within our greater region and
serve as one stop for informa-
tion on all the latest happen-
ings, not just Chamber re-
lated," Moliterno said.
The last initiative was the
Area Councils. The goal of
the Area Councils that will
first target DeFuniak
Springs, Freeport and South
Walton is to develop a grass
roots outreach council that
serves to keep each of key
communities within the
chamber's service area active
in the development of rel-
evant programming, ser-
vices, and mostly serve as the
leadership representing the
chamber in those communi-
ties.
"The Walton County
Chamber of Commerce will
be able to do all of these new
and exciting initiatives with
the help of the board of direc-
tors, staff and most impor-
tantly with the help of its
members. To get involved or
hear more about any of these
initiatives contact the Cham-
ber at 850-267-0683,"
Moliterno said.

His name


shall be


called wonderful


By Dr. Robert M. Jaye

Isaiah lived in troubled and
perilous times. He knew from
God that within a generation
his nation would be taken into
captivity. But far away Isaiah
saw a bright spot. He knew
that a Son was to be born to
save those who sat in great
darkness, no matter how
bleak the future seemed.


In Isaiah 9:6, he wrote,
"And His name shall be called
Wonderful...." We need the
Christ of the first Christmas
to shine again into our lives.
His name is Wonderful. .

The old world for "wonder-
ful" has several meanings. It
could have been translated
"miraculous." Another mean-
ing could be "lovely." It could


mean "distinguished," or "set
apart from the rest." Let us
be content to keep to the old
translation of "Wonderful."
The Lord Christ had a won-
derful birth. In Luke 2:18,
says, concerning His birth,
"and all they that heard it
marveled at those things
which were told them by the
shepherds." Luke 2:33 reads
that "Joseph and His mother
wondered at those things
which were spoked of Him."
The Lord Christ had a won-
derful life. Luke 5:26 says,
"They (that heard Him) were
all amazed, and glorified God,
and were filled with fear, say-
ing, We have seen strange
things today." Mark 6 tells
that Jesus and His disciples
were on a voyage at sea when
a sudden storm caught them.
He caused the storm of wind
to cease, and the disciples
were "amazed in themselves
beyond measure, and won-
dered."
The Lord Christ had a won-
derful death. The apostle
Paul speaks of glorying in the
cross of Christ. Even Pilate


THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, DECEMBER 15, 200o

"marveled" at how Jesus went resurrection. When Peter ar- those things which had come
to His death (Matthew 27:14). rived at the empty tomb, he to pass" (Luke 24:12). May
He also had a wonderful was "wondering in Himself at He be wonderful to you.

Seeds From The Sower
Billy Robinson walked
down a, street in New York
City recently and stopped to
light a cigarette.
When he struck the match,
the building next to him blew
up. Leaking gas accumulated
in the building, and the
match set off the explosion.
The tongue is just as de-
structive. The Living Bible
says it "can turn our whole
lives into a blazing fire of de-
struction and disaster."
But your tongue can bless
- rather than burn, it can heal
rather than hurt. It can be
pure rather than putrid, it
can bless God rather than
* blaspheme Him.
How? By yielding it to Him.
The next time you cleanse
your teeth, ask God to
cleanse and control your
tongue. He will!

The South Walton boys
team got 16 points from
Aaron Knight but could not
overcome the play of


Northview center Cedric

Battle of the blue hairs


By CHUCK HINSON
I am not referring to a trip
to the beauty parlor for our
grandmothers, I am refer-
ring to the match-up on Jan.
3, 2006 between Joe "Pop"
Paterno and Bobby Bowden
in the Fed Ex Orange Bowl in
Miami.
Though it has not been
slated as the game to watch
over USC and Texas in the
Rose Bowl, or either Notre
Dame and Ohio State in the
Feista Bowl, it does have its
appeal. The appeal of putting
together two of the oldest,
most winningest and longest
career resumed head coaches
in NCAA football history.
The whispers and shouts
for.Bowden to fire his son and
possibly resign as head foot-
ball coach, seemed to have
been hushed after FSU's
shocking win over No. 5 Vir-
ginia Tech and with the win,
sealing the ACC and a spot in
the Orange Bowl.
He enters the Fed Ex Or-
ange Bowl with 359 victories
under his belt, but a less than
glitzy 8-4 season for the year,
an ACC Championship ring
on his finger and ranked at
No. 22 in all three polls.
Bowden is 76-years old.
Joe Paterno enters the
game with 353 victories
under his belt, a 10-1 season,
a Big Ten Championship
ring on his finger and ranked

No. 3 in all three polls. He
comes in at 79-years old.
Since the announcement
on Dec. 4, of who was going to
what bowl, Bowden's camp
and Paterno's camp have
been practicing for the show-
down.
What is impressive is that
though many thought Flor-
ida' State should not have
even been in the ACC play-
off, the Seminoles, even fall-
ing to Clemson, North Caro-
lina State and Virginia, did
beat the two top-rated teams
on both sides of the ACC
conference-Miami and Vir-
ginia Tech.

With their demolition of
Marcus Vick and the Vir-
ginia Tech Hokies on Dec. 3
in the ACC championship in
Jacksonville, the Seminoles
have reportedly been resort-
ing back to old playbooks and
the team plays of the early to
mid 90's. It was what worked
then and apparently what
worked on Dec. 3 when FSU
handed Virginia Tech their
15th straight loss against the


Seminoles.
Joe Paterno's camp has
also proven that it doesn't
matter what age you are, you
still can lead your team to
victory. He also shrugged off
reporters and commentators
when they badgered him
about his age and the future
of his Nittany Lions.
The Penn State squad has
been impressive on the field,
both with their defense and
their offense. They have
toppled several ranked
teams and fought to keep
their spots in the top 10 all
throughout the season.
With a combined winning
roster of more than 712 victo-
ries in their career and a
combined age of 155-years,
both coaches have seen the
best of players and worst of
teams. The two old friends
will meet in Miami on Jan. 3,
7 p.m. for the Fed Ex Orange
Bowl.
The last time the two
teams met was in the 1990
Blockbuster Bowl. Florida
State beat the Nittany Lions,
24-17.

What a year it has been for
theVanderbilt Commodores.
Their success began with
upset of Tennessee and now
the selection of Vanderbilt
quarterback Jay Cutler as
the SEC Offensive Player of
the Year.
The Commodores got off to
an incredible start with a 4-0
season and proved that they
had what it took to be in the
SEC conference. After break-
ing a 22-year long losing
streak against intrastate ri-
val Tennesse by winning 28-
24, the Commodores have
seen one of their best seasons
in nearly two decades.
Now to put the icing on the
cake, the Commodores quar-
terback has been honored by
the conference as the player


of the year. He led the confer-
ence in passes (462), passing
yards (3,073) and touch-
downs (21), while throwing
only nine interceptions for
the year.
Cutler edged out over
Georgia's D.J. Shockley and
Auburn running back Kenny
Irons for the honor.
On defense, Alabama line-
backer DeMeco Ryans was
picked as this year's SEC
Defensive Player of the Year.
Arkansas' Darren McFad-
den was named freshman
player of the year.
The SEC also announced
the first team for the 2005
season:
1st Team Offense:
WR-Sidney Rice, S. Carolina
WR-Chad Jackson, Florida
OL-Marcus McNeill, Auburn
OL-Max Jean-Gilles, Georgia

ON DECEMBER 1 AND 5, third graders at West DeFuniak Elementary School performed their Christmas musical
"A New World Christmas." The musical teaches the giving of love, peace, friendship, kindness, and charity as gifts
for Christmas. The musical also teaches the attitude of conservation and good stewardship. A live, potted Christmas
tree was at center stage. This tree will be planted by students on the school grounds after Christmas. The tree was
donated by Spike's Nursery.

Spurrier n amred SEC Coach of the Year


By CHUCK HINSON
Complete with the visor
- now adorning the SEC colors
of red and white, Steve Spur-
rier accepted the honor of
SEC Coach of the Year by the
Associated Press.
In his first season at the
University of South Caro-
lina, he led the Gamecocks to
a 7-4 season and their first.
bowl since 2002. He had
impressive wins over Florida
and Tennessee this ear and
rivaled Georgia until the end
of their game early in the
season, but suffered a 17-15
loss to the Bulldogs in the
final minutes of the game.
This is the seventh time
that the coach has been given


,the honor. He received it
twice while at Duke in 1988
and 1989, and then received
the honor five more times
while at Florida with the last
time being in 1996.
.After a short stay as head
coach with the Washington
Redskins and a very disap-
pointing season in the NFL,
Spurrier returned to the col-
lege field in 2004 to take the
position left vacant from re-
tiring coaching legend Lou
Holtz.
The Gamecocks and Spur-
rier head in to bowl season
when they play Missouri in
the Independance Bowl on
Dec. 30. If they win, it could
give the South Carolina


team an opportunity to fin-
ish in the top 25.
Spurrier has never
coached a team that has not
finished with a ranking in
the AP's top 25 poll.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, DECEMBER 15, 2005


READERS ASSEMBLED following "Read for 2006" at Walton Middle School.


Walton Middle School


participates in seventh


annual "Read for 2006"


By BRUCE COLLIER
Walton Middle School
(WMS) hosted 40 Walton
High School (WHS) students,
members of WHS Anchor
Club and Anchor Shipmates,
in this year's "Read for 2006"
program.
This marks the seventh
year for the program, spon-
sored by Scholastic, Inc., a
worldwide children's media
publisher.
"Read for 2006" was held at
WMS, and at schools around
the world, on December 2.
Each school hosted guest
readers, reading works of
their choice for 2006 seconds,
approximately 33 minutes.
The WMS program began
at 7:30 a.m., with WHS stu-
dents gathering in a class-
room for donuts, orange juice,
and orientation.
WMS principal Russell
-Hughes and WHS principal
Mike Davis spoke to the stu-
dents, who crowded into the
small space. Also speaking


were WMS reading director
Dr. Dale Yount, and other
teachers.
Students' were asked to
"read loud enough," and "be
respectful" of their audi-
ences.
"We asked for the best stu-
dents," said Hughes. "You
take reading seriously."
The students were then
sent individually into various
homerooms. In addition to
their own selections, the stu-
dents were given a copy of
Yes, Virginia, There is a
Santa Claus," a well-known
Christmas article that first
appearedin 1897in theNew
York Sun.
Following their reading
sessions, the WHS students
gathered for a group photo-
graph, then returned to
school.
WMS will continue its ef-
forts to enhance and improve
students' reading skills by
hosting Tallahassee author
Adrian Fogelin on December
7 at the school.

FOREST LAND RECOVERY
PROGRAM (FLRP)
FOR HURRICANE DAMAGED
FORESTS
The Florida Division of Forestry is implementing a 2nd
sign up for a new forest landowner assistance program
titled the Forest Land Recovery Program (FLRP), which
is authorized under the Military Construction
Appropriations and Emergency Hurricane Supplemental
Appropriations Act, 2005. This program is designed to
provide assistance to forest landowners who suffered
losses in the 2004 hurricane season as a result of hurri-
cane, tropical storm, or related events for the purposes of
debris removal, replanting of timber, and other related
purposes.
This program is available to non-industrial forest land-
owners on a 75/25 cost-share basis to eligible landowners.
Landowners who own at least 10 acres and no more than
5000 acres and are eligible can receive up to $25,000
maximum for their hurricane damaged forests. .The sign
up period is from NOVEMBER 1, 2005 to DECEMBER
30, 2005. For more information visit our web site at
www.fl-dOf.com or contact Lea Anna. Melton, your

LIFEGUARDS MAY BE seen for the first time at a num-
ber of Walton County beach accesses for the first time this
spring, as in neighboring Destin (pictured,) where city fire
department personnel staff a lifeguard program.



Bids sought for


lifeguards


By DOTTY NIST
Requests for proposals
(RFPs) are out for lifeguard
services at six Walton County
beach accesses, Kriss Titus
announced on Dec. 7.
Titus, executive director
for the South Walton Tourist
Development Council (TDC)
developed the RFPs at the
request of the Walton County
Board of County Commis-
sioners (BCC).
If approved, Walton
County's foray into lifeguard
services would involve six
beach accesses: the Miramar
Beach, Fort Panic, Ed
Walline, Grayton Dunes,
Bramble Grove, and Inlet
Beach public accesses. These
are classified as regional as
opposed to neighborhood
beach accesses and feature
parking and restrooms.
Initial plans are for life
saving services to begin in
late March or early April
2006 and continue into Sep-
tember.
The services are to be pro-
vided by an entity other than
the TDC. Both the South
Walton Fire District and the
Walton County Sheriffs Of-
fice have expressed interest
in providing manpower for
the program: Fire district
and sheriffs office personnel
already respond to beach
emergencies, including inci-
dents involving swimmers
and boaters in distress.
On Nov. 22, Titus told the
BCC that the TDC could pro-
vide funding for the 2006 pi-
lot lifeguard program by
reprioritizing funds previ-


ously designated for three
other initiatives. These in-
clude promotion of the Au-
tumn Tides shoulder season
festival, installation of the
wayfinding signage program,
and creation of a nature cen-
ter on the Kellogg property
in Santa Rosa Beach.
She added that if funding
of the lifeguard program by
the, TDC were to become a
permanent responsibility, it
would be necessary to raise
the local tourist tax rate by
one percent. Collected on
short-term rental accommo-
dations in south Walton
County, the tourist or "bed"
tax is currently set at four
percent. A voter referendum
would be required to increase
the tourist tax rate.
Walton County Legal Ser-
vices Director David
Hallman has stated that it
will be necessary to make
sure that TDC bed tax funds
can legally be used to pay for
lifeguard services. By state
law, the funds are specifically
designated for the promotion
of tourism and for beach
renourishment activities.
The question to be answered
is whether a beach life-sav-
ing program would qualify as
an element of tourism promo-
tion.
On Nov. 22, when the BCC
voted to move forward with
RFPs for lifeguards, County
Administrator Ronnie Bell
suggested that the commis-
sioners schedule a public
hearing in Jan. 2006 to ex-
amine the TDC funding is-
sue.

ei em raisedl thei hackles of al mamll-calei amendlment veloper addressedpr thTe com- Terrell agreed +the request+.for


local developer and planning
director Pat Blackshear.
The proposal for Laurel
Woods, a major development
of 33 single-family residen-
tial lots on 9.94 acres of land
located on the west side of
Harstvedt Road, north of
Chat Holley Road has been
in development for some
time. The applicants, Charlie
Ryan and Emerald Coast As-
sociates, are in possession of
two letters from the county
designating the land as
neighborhood planning and
infill areas,
However, Tim Brown,
speaking on behalf of the
planning division, said the
.area meets the code, except.
the land is not infill as origi-
nally thought. This is due to
a Florida Department of En-
vironmental Protection mos-
quito ditch on the south end
of the property, Which
changes it to wetland, since
any water belonging to the


would be needed so the buffer
could be created, even though
the developer would likely
lose one lot in the creation of
the buffer.
Speaking on behalf of the
.applicant, attorney Dana
Matthews said the developer
was willing to sacrifice the lot
if the project could now go
forward and was willing to
wait another month and a
half to start to fix the prob-
lem, which would save the
county from a lawsuit they
would surely lose.
Blackshear said that
Matthews was absolutely
correct and a mistake in the
land designation had been
made that could easily be re-
paired by a small-scale
amendment. She pointed out
the developer had been given
written interpretation of
maps.
Each year, at, the county's
discretion, 80 acres of land
can have its designation


mission and asked if the pro-
posed small-scale amend-
ment for Laurel Hills would
be coming from 2006 amend-
ments. Blackshear told him
it would be part if the 2006
designation.
An incensed Kramer said,
"The public sector is taking
from the private sector be-
cause they made a mistake.
Applications are being de-
nied for 2006. This project
should be put with other ap-
plicants for small-scale
amendments for 2006. Parity
is parity."'
Blackshear responded by
saying applications for 2006
have not been denied, be-
cause they haven't been
looked at yet. "You have
called our office, been rude to
the staff by phone and email.
This is not preferential treat-
ment for this project, this is
fixing a mistake that could
cost the county millions if not
corrected." Blackshear also


a small-scale amendment did
not constitute preferential
treatment. Sally Infield
made a motion to approve
the project with the two
stipulations, and it was
passed unanimously.

Other items approved in-
clude the construction of a
9,000 square foot worship
center on 3.01 acres of land
located along U.S. Highway
90 north, approximately one-
half mile west of the Walton
County and Holmes County
line in Argyle, FL.
Also approved was the de-
velopment of four residential
lots on .75 acres of land along
*the, east side of North Win-
ston Lane and development
of Alligator Point, a major
development of 12 residen-
tial lots on 6.64 acres of land
at the end of County Road
393 on the northeast side,
adjacent to Choctawhatchee
Bay.


NEARLYALL of the native vegetation was recently removed without a permit from this undeveloped 2.84-acre property on
CR-30A in Blue Mountain Beach, prompting a Walton County Code Enforcement stop work order and protest by a local
citizen organization.

By DOTTY NIST
Last week, a 2.84-acre un-
developed site on CR-30A
was virtually stripped' clean
of plant life.
Formerly, the site, located
across from White Cliffs in
Blue Mountain Beach, had
been covered with native veg-
etation. It is reportedly
owned by a Memphis com-
pany, Premier 30A LLC.
A Walton County permit is
required for land to be
cleared in connection with
the development of a site.
After determining that no
permit had been obtained,
Walton County Code En-
forcement placed a stop work
order on the property and
sent the company a notice of
violation. The stop work or-
der instructs them to contact
the Walton County Planning
Department before under-


taking additional work on
the property.
Walton County Code En-
forcement Coordinator Kevin
Hargett said that, unfortu-
nately, the damage was done
by the time his office was
alerted to issue the stop work
order. Hargett said he ex-
pects that replanting native
vegetation on the site will be
mandated. The case has now
been turned over to the plan-
ning department and
Hargett said code enforce-
ment is also continuing to
monitor the situation.
*.
The South Walton Com-
munity Council (SWCC) is
also protesting the removal
of the vegetation.
SWCC Executive Director
Anita Page commented, "Our
position is that it was im-
properly cleared. This was a


protected scrub oak commu-
nity. Fifty percent of that pro-
tected vegetative community
should have been preserved.
We feel there should be a res-
toration."

Page's argument is based
on landscaping standards set
forth in the Route 30A Sce-
nic Corridor section of the
Walton County Land Devel-
opment Code, which specify
that "Preservation require-
ments apply to all parcels"
along CR-30A.
Those requirements pro-
vide for the retention of "50
percent of the natural scrub
vegetation on the site," in oak
scrub and a number of other
natural plant communities.
Alternatively, the land devel-
opment code allows develop-
ers to reduce the amount of
required vegetation reten-


tion by 25 percent if they pay
"a fee equivalent to the value
of the land area that would
have otherwise have been
preserved" to the county to
fund the acquisition of
greenway corridors or other
natural open space areas.
Page said the SWCC
would have had no problem
with a 25 percent retention
of vegetation on the site in
conjunction with such an
agreement.
She said it is her under-
standing that the owner of
the property has not pre-
sented any development plan
or applied for a development
order.

The planning department
had not responded to re-
quests by the Beach Breeze
for information or comment
on the matter by press time.

Christmas Bird Count


The Choctawhatchee
Audubon Society will conduct
the annual Choctawhatchee
Bay Christmas Bird Count
(CBC) on Monday, December
19, 2005. Volunteers are
needed to assist experienced
leaders as recorders or spot-
ters; no experience neces-
sary.
This is the 106th annual
winter count since ornitholo-
gist Frank Chapman, in
1900, proposed that counting
birds should replace the cus-
tom of shooting birds during
the holidays.
Now over 55,000 volun-
teers from all 50 states, the


Canadian Provinces, and
parts of Central and South
America, the West Indies,
and some Pacific Islands par-
ticipate. Compilers enter
their count data into a mas-
sive database that can be ac-
cessed by species or location.
See www.audubon.org/bird/
cbc.
The primary objective of
the CBC is to monitor the
status and distribution of
bird populations which is vi-
tal for conservation efforts.
To help in the count or for
more information, contact
Donald Ware at 862-6582 or
donware@earthlink.net.

Water Use Tips


and Statistics



Install aerators on \our kitchen and bathroom faucets to
reduce indoor water use. Aerators mix air with the water,
creating a flow that is still forceful but that uses far fewer
gallons per minute.

Dishwasher manufacturers now\ offer high-efficiency
dish asher models. These dishwashers use less water
and energy. A high-efficiency dish asher can %wash a load
of dishes using 5 to 7 gallons of water.

Repairing dripping faucets and leaky' toilets. Dripping
faucets can \\aste about 2.000 gallons of water each year.
Leaky toilets can waste as much as 200() gallons of w ater
each day.

By installing more efficient w after fixtures and regularly
checking for leaks, households can reduce daily water use
by about 35%.

If all U.S. households installed \ ater-saving features,
water use would d decrease by 30-. saving an estimated
5:4 billion gallons of water per da\. This w would result in
a saying of 11.3 million dollars per day.

Households on a\ erage use 350 gallons of water per day.

In 2000. the highest water consuming states withdre\ :
California 51,200 million gallons per day (mgd :
Texas- 29,600 mgd; and Florida 20.100 mgd.
In comparison, the low est \\water consuming states withdrew\:
Alaska 305 mgd: Rhode Island 429:
and Vermont 447 mgd.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, DECEMBER 15, 2005


CIC Inc.


opens


first


office

Children In Crisis, Inc.,
(CIC), cut the ribbon on its
first office last week. Accord-
ing to Ken Hair, Executive
Director, CIC, "This is a mile-
stone for our organization
and a tangible message that
we're making progress in our
mission to provide homes and
establish hope for our chil-
dren in crisis."
Temporary use of the spa-
cious office building is being
donated. The new sign was
courtesy Ron and Debbie
Culbreth, SignLink Commu-
nications.
The new CIC office will be
the temporary headquarters
until the Children's Neigh-


Lowe's gives back to Boys

and Girls Clubs of the

Emerald Coast members

borhood is built in 2006. The
Neighborhood will include
four group homes, a
children's emergency shelter,
a recreation building and a
neighborhood center for sup-
port services for community
children.
The CIC is a non-profit,
charitable organization made
up of caring people working
hard to secure a solution to


the instability experienced
by the children in Okaloosa
and Walton counties.
Today in Okaloosa and
Walton counties, there is a
critical shortage of foster
homes. This shortage has
lead to the frequent separa-
tion of siblings and the fre-
quent moving of abused and
neglected children from one
home to another, even out-


side local counties.
The CIC board and advi-
sors include staff specialist
from the Department of Chil-
dren and Families, foster
parents, former foster chil-
dren, community profession-
als and civic leaders. This is
a community problem that
needs to be solved by the
community, according to
Hair.


The Boys and Girls Clubs
of the Emerald Coast re-
cently received a large and
fun gift for its members. The
local Ft. Walton Beach
Lowe's Store donated around
300 wood projects for the club
members to make and take
home. They also gave the
club 30 hammers and aprons
for the youth to use.

The students were able to
select which of the Lowe's
projects they wanted to make
and then paint the project
before they took it home. The
projects included wooden
cars, space shuttles, picture
frames, First Aid kits, emer-
gency phone number kits,
candy cane holders, bird


houses, bug boxes and
Valentine's Day card holders.
Making the decision of what
to make was the most diffi-
cult part for the youth. Many
of the youth plan to give the
project to their family mem-
bers for Christmas gifts.
The Boys & Girls Club has
served the youth of Okaloosa
and recently Walton County
youth for over 35 years. The
local clubs provide programs
for youth in the areas of char-
acter and leadership develop-
ment, educational enhance-
ment, career preparation,
health and life skills, the arts
and sports, fitness and rec-
reation.
Contact the club at (850)
862-1616 for information.


Fashion show benefits CIC Inc.


Over $7,000

More than 200 Emerald
Coast trendsetters and Chil-
dren In Crisis, Inc. (CIC) sup-
porters turned out to see
Fifth Avenue Style on the
Emerald Coast at Off 5th
Saks Fifth Avenue Outlet in
Silver Sands Factory Stores
recently. The Fashion Show
Gala was a great success
thanks to the event chairper-
son arid, coordinator, Brenda
Seffens and her army of vol-
unteers and corporate spon-
sors. ;
The very stylish and enjoy-
able event raised more than
$7,000 for CIC. Ken Hair,
Executive Director, CIC,
commented, "Thanks to
Brenda and all the hard work
of her team of volunteers, the
evening was an event to re-
the business sponsors and
donors who made the show
an unequaled success in ev-
ery respect.
The Fashion Show Gala
was presented by Avantgarde
AVEDA Concept Salon. It
was sponsored by Off 5th,
Saks Fifth Outlet and Silver
Sands Factory Stores.
Every effort was made to
give the attendees a wonder-
ful evening. Catering was
provided by Beachwalk Cafe,
Bianco, Calypso Cafe, Chan's
Wine World, Emerald Coast
Catering and Harbor Grille.
Other sponsors ensured
the evening had that elegant
"touch of class." They in-
cluded Environmental
Soundscapes by DJ Szuch.
BOSE Outlet at Silver Sands
Factory Stores, Adaptive
Party Rentals. Bay Area
Awards, Fine Form Design
Studio, Ccp Bayou Printing.
Donna Burgess Prints and
others.
Today in Okaloosa and


raised

Walton counties there is a
critical shortage of foster
homes. This has lead to the
frequent separation of sib-
lings and the frequent mov-
ing of abused and neglected
children from one home to
another, even outside local
counties.
Children In Crisis, Inc. was
formed as a nonprofit orga-
nization to provide a better
solution, a community solu-
tion. The CIC board and ad-
visors include staff specialist
from the Department of Chil-
dren and Families, foster
parents, former foster chil-
dren, community profession-
als and civic leaders.

With a little over a
week away until
Christmas day, the
entire country is in
the holiday spirit.
What a treat to take
the whole family on
an evening excur-:
sion and check out
the numerous light
displays all over the
area.

Little by little, day by day,
more and more lights appear
in home windows, outdoors
on cedar and fir trees, all
across the front porch of
houses and even on the front
bumpers of semi trucks. It's
Christmas and the world are
lit up with an array of colors.
Throughout communities
and towns all across Anmer-
ica; the spirit of the season'
can be seen. Mangers in the
yard and Santa on the roof
top, it seems that, f your
house is not decorated for the
holidays, you're the oddball.
Around this area, there are
numerous cities, subdivi-
sions and public parks that
are open to the public to view
their various arrays of
Christmas lights. Listed are
a few that will be dressed up
for the holidays and who have
opened .their streets and
property for the public.
In DeFuniak Springs, the.
annual Christmas Reflec-
tions has been going on for
several years, and once again,
has the night sky lit up with
hundreds of thousands of
lights. The event takes place
on Circle Drive around Lake
DeFuniak in downtown De-
Funiak Springs. The cost is
$3 and the event will be open
until New Year's Eve.


If you have already seen
the lights, then take a drive to
the Pine Shores subdivision,
just off 2nd Avenue, on Dec.
17 and 18. Streets will be
lined with luminaries and
homes, yards and driveways
will have numerous Christ-
mas displays.
Moving on to Fort Walton
Beach, the Landing has come
alive with the holiday spirit
as they are in conjunction
with. the Okaloosa on Ice, a
dazzling winter wonderland,
complete with an ice skating
rink.. Through Jan. 2, 2006,
the fantasy land of lights is
open to the public.
With 1,000 handcrafted,
individually hung snow-
flakes, the six-acre park also
includes a train that will run
throughout .the evenings
starting from the Okaloosa
on Ice and going throughout
the park. A 30-foot Christ-
mas tree is the centerpiece
for the exhibit.
In downtown Fort Walton
Beach, the Biidgeport Col-
on., located behind Wal-
Mart on Beal Parkway, will'
be having their first lumi-
nary and lights display on
Dec. 17 and 18. Various
homes throughout the neigh-
borhood and the streets of
the community will be lined
with candles and thousands
of lights.
If you are wanting to take
this weekend and just get
away from it all, while still
seeing Christmas decora-
tions and lights at their fin-
est, then make your way up
into Georgia and check out
the Christmas lights at Call-
away Garden.
From Nov. 18 until New
Year's Eve, the 13,000-acre
resort comes alive with the
Christmas spirit. Lights
come on at 6 p.m. nightly and
the Christmas Village opens
at noon daily.
