TYLER AND TORI decorate homemade Christmas cookies for Santa and his helpers.


TORI SINGS Jingle Bells to her favorite doll.,


9A Wood


By BRUCE COLLIER
This year's Herald-Breeze'
Christmas Family, the
Woods, make their home in
Ten Lakes Estates, just north
of DeFuniak Springs.
Michael, Ashlie, and their
three children have lived in
this house for two-and-a-half
years.
Eight-year-old Tyler is at
a basket ball game today. He
is in third-grade at Maude
Saunders Elementary.
Tori is five, working her
way through the rigors of
kindergarten. She is a fount
of information on herself and
her two siblings.
One-year-old Gracie is less
talkative, especially when
getting her bottle. She is
proud of her ability to walk,
or rather, to totter, along the
floor, bracing herself on the
edge of the coffee table.'
Gracie has large dark eyes,
which follow everyone and
everything around. A friend
of~ -the family says that
Gracie. "loves. watching her
brdth'er and sister:"
"She says 'mama' and
'dada,'" says Ashlie, watching
as Michael gives Gracie her
lunch.
"She said tomato!" adds
Tori.
"Because you and Tyler
kept repeating it to her," says
Ashlie.
Ashlie and Michael both
have family roots in the area.
Though born in Pensacola,
Ashlie's family is from here.


Michael grew up in DeFu-
niak Springs. He and Ashlie
both graduated from Walton
High School.
Michael has been a correc-
tions officer with Walton Cor-
rectional Institute for ten-
and-a-half years. Ashlie is a
dental hygienist, working for
Dr. Bowen and Dr.
O'Donnell.
Neither confine their ac-
tivities to work. Both coach
soccer. Ashlie has coached
the junior cheerleading
squad. Starting in February,
she will be coaching
cheernastics, combining
,cheerleading and gymnas-
tics. The county-wide pro-
gram is for girls four years
and up, and will be taught at
the former armory in DeFu-
niak Springs.
In addition to basketball,
Tyler plays baseball and foot-
ball. He recently won first
place in the third-grade sci-
ence fair at Maude Saunders.
His project dealt with the iri-:
flation-to-bounce relation-i-.
ship of basketballs.-
Tori plays soccer, cheers,
competes in pageants, and
plays with her baby sister.
. Then there's ballet, and sing-
ing.
Taking a cue from her fa-
ther, Tori also plays begin-
ning guitar. Ashlie says that
Michael is "very good" on the
acoustic guitar.
Michael enjoys playing
southern gospel and country.
A trumpet player from his


hristmas


school days, he also indulges
in big band music.
He also helps Ashlie. "She
keeps me pretty busy," he
says, smiling.
This Christmas, Ashlie re-
solved to revive a local holi-
day tradition. She organized
the Miss Hometown Christ-
mas Pageant, which was
held on December 10.
The. pageant raised funds
for next year's July 4th fire-
works display, and was a big
success.
"I had done the pageant in
high school," says Ashlie. "It's
a big thing for the commu-
nity. A lot of girls love pag-
eants."
A long-time tradition with
the Woods is adopting a fam-
ily, either through the Salva-
tionArmy or Wal-Mart. They
also participate in various
Angel Tree programs, both
for children and the elderly.
A family friend says that
Ashlie has been doing this
since she was a child.
This Christmas will see the
Woods at their church, Pleas-
ant Ridge Baptist, at home
baking cookies, or, in Tori's
. case, admiring her first-ever
gingerbread house.
There's a large tree in the
house, which the family all
helped, to decorate. Under
the tree are a lot of wrapped
presents. Tori freely admits
that she inspects them
closely.
"I want a Barbie castle,"
she says.
On Christmas Eve, the
Wood family will open their
house to some 25 guests,
friends and family.
"We celebrate Jesus' birth-
day at Christmas, and fam-
ily and friends. That's the
true meaning of Christmas,"
says Ashlie.





%Merry


Christmas


THE WOOD FAMILY had to sample the goodies to make sure they would be okay.


GRACTE is hot dh the trail
of'Rid._t. and the other re'-,
indeer.


TYLER enjoys playing his deer hunting game. Better watch
out reindeer!


GRACIE enjoys dad reading the Christmas story from her own fabric book.


THE WOOD FAMILY wishes everyone a Merry Christmas. From left, Ashlie, Tori,

Development dominates agenda


By BEN GRAFTON
Following the normal
agenda order, the Freeport
City Council meeting of Dec.
13 opened with city planner
Latilda Henninger present-
ing the most recent develop-
ments in city growth issues.
The first item was a pro-
posed amendment to the
agreement signed with the
developers of the Freeport
Residential subdivision. The
proposal would remove about
5.8 acres along the southern
border o.f the property and
make this parcel available for
purchase by owners of adjoin-
ing property who voiced their
approval. This change would
eliminate the estate-sized
lots in the original plan and
would replace them with of
15 housing units that would
meet zoning and comprehen-
sive plan requirements. The
Council approved the pro-
posal.
Henninger then presented
a small scale amendment
and zoning assignment for a
2.65- acre St. Peter parcel on
the north side of Bay Loop
Road. The Walton County
zoning of rural village would
change to Freeport low den-
sity residential. The council
approved the first reading of


the ordinance. The second
reading was scheduled for
the Jan. 10 council meeting.
Henninger reviewed the
scope of work proposed on a
4.5 acre property owned by
Valparaiso Realty. The
project would construct a
9,000 square foot medical
clinic in phases. In the first
phase, a small temporary fa-
cility would be constructed to
serve as a doctor's office un-
til the first permanent build-
ing can be erected and fur-
nished. At that time, the
clinic would move to that
building and the temporary
building would be demol-
ished. The long-range plan
would see the construction of
a second permanent building
on the site. The council ap-
proved the project.
The Owl's Head Planned
Development Project (PDP)
Phase I plat, defining 426
lots and 92 multi-family
dwellings, was presented to
the council for acceptance.
Buell Cobb, spokesman for
Owl's Head, told the council
that their patience during
the incubation phase of the
project was appreciated.
He commented that the
project would include a golf
course designed by Palmer


a. EE R II




(850) 892-3564
[)598W. Hwy.90ri
DeFuniak Springs


Course Design. Cobb finished
his comments by introducing
Shelton Stone as the new
general manager for the
project. The council approved
acceptance of the plat subject
to final financial arrange-
ments.
The final plat for the Cano-
pies subdivision was pre-
sented to the council for ac-
ceptance. It was in compli-
ance with the land develop-
ment code as written when
the development order was
approved.
The final reading of the
Huff property annexation or-
dinance was approved.
City Engineer Charles Pe-
ters said that because of re-
ductions in miscellaneous ex-
penses the North Bay water
project closed approximately
$170,000 under budget. The
city can request $89,000. of
this money for use on other
approved projects. The bal-


ance may also become avail-
able for city use after ap-
proval by the rural develop-
ment office.
Peters said that prices are
under negotiation for the
Phase II Bay Loop sewer
project. Costs should be
available at the next council
meeting.
The pre-construction plan-
ning meeting for the city's
water tank and well near the
Windswept development will
be held on Wednesday, Dec.
21. The city will approach
Regional Utilities to explore
property that may be avail-
able for this project..
The council approved a
resolution for membership in
the Florida retirement sys-
tem.
Along with a banner an-
nouncing the park, developer
Jay Odom presented athletic
jerseys for the Freeport Park
at Hammock Bay to council


members. Plaques recogniz-
ing the significant part that
Mayor Mickey Marse and
Councilwoman Jean Arrant
played in procurement of this
park were also presented. In


his remarks Odom noted that
the park would be a "world
class facility" and that the
Hammock Bay developers
genuinely enjoyed being a
part of Freeport.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


PERSONAL COMMENTS




Editor's Comment



Merry Christmas to us aft


By RON KELLEY

As you might guess, I get a lot of e-mails. I wade through
silly chain letters, offers for Rolex watches that are "genu-
ine replicas" whatever that may mean as well as chances
to win.things and shop at online pharmacies. Once I delete
all the spam, I often find forwarded messages from friends
that are amusing, thoughtful, touching or downright hilari-
ous.
A few days ago, a friend sent one with a Christmas theme
that really stood out so much so, that I wanted to share it
with you,
It seems that an elementary school was putting on their
Christmas pageant. One scene called for a group of adorable
youngsters to appear onstage holding individual signs, each
inscribed with a single letter that, when held side by side,
spelled out the name of the program, which was called
'Christmas Love.'
One sweet-faced little girl came out and proudly held up
her sign, just like she'd been instructed. Unfortunately, she
had accidentally gotten her sign upside down. There were
some snickers and laughter from the audience as they rec-,
ognized the "M" in Christmas was now a "W." The child did
not realize her sign was upside down and continued to smile
brightly, holding up her letter as the rest of the children fol-
lowed her onstage holding up their lettered signs.
When all the children were onstage and the audience could
see the full message, the laughs and chuckles disappeared.'
In that moment, hushed and still, every person in the audi-
torium suddenly understood that they were looking at the
real meaning of Christmas.
Side by side, holding up their signs, the children spelled
out a new phrase, C-H-R-I-S-T- W-A-S- L-O-V-E.
That is the true meaning of Christmas. Yes, it is a holiday
from work and a time for merchants to rejoice, but it's so
much more than that.
When I think of Christmas, I see more than carefully-
wrapped presents under brightly-decorated trees; more than
a houseful of family and friends and tables laden with deli-
cious food; more than watching George Bailey discover that
he really does have a wonderful life or listening to Bing
Crosby sing "White Christmas."
All of that is wonderful, of course, but the spirit of Christ-
mas is so much more, especially here in Walton County. Be-
cause I live in the best small town in America, I see the spirit


Editor: i
As a concerned citizen, I can't help but make a comment
about the Merry Christmas vs. Happy Holidays dilemma.
First of all, I can't believe that we as a people of a suppos-
edly free county, would get so politically-correct that we
would turn a greeting like "Merry Christmas' into some-
thing that we would fear to speak in public. Christmas is a
time that Christians the world over set aside to remember
the day of our Lord's birth, and to spend time with our fami-
lies. I realize that some people do, not look at Christmas as a
religious holiday, but why does it bother them for us to speak
the words? We are not telling them who to worship. If they
can keep us from using a simple phrase such as this, that is
as old as time, where will it end? Will they rename Christ-
mas day? Change the name of all of our old carols? Think of
Bing Crosby singing, I'm dreaming ofa White Holiday. What
about Christmas cards? What are we going to call them?
Another thing retailers had better think about is this: if
there is no "Merry Christmas" there is no need for Christ-
mas trees, Christmas cookies, or any of the stuff they have
been pushing at us since August.
It seems really sad to me that our children are growing
up in a world where it is okay to blast filthy rap music from
every car in the parking lot, but we can't say something as
loving as "Merry Christmas" or we might lose ourjob. Should
an employee even have to worry about letting it slip out?
Maybe the Grinch has stolen Christmas.

of Christmas all year long.
I see the spirit of Christmas in the faces of people gather-
ing up sacks of clothing and boxes of food to give to people
who have lost everything in some.terrible storm. I see that
spirit in the faces of people who have opened their homes to
families who have suddenly found themselves homeless and
adrift. I see that spirit in the faces of the electric power crews,
construction workers, firefighters and paramedics that leave
their homes and families to head to those stricken areas to
lend a helping hand wherever it's needed.
I see the spirit of Christmas when the homefolks go out in
the heat or the rain or the cold to buy steak dinners to help
out someone in need or to raise money for some kind of char-
ity. I see that spirit when I look into the smiling faces ofARC
folks cheerfully working out by the highway and on the faces
of volunteers that take in foster children or reach out to help
a battered mother or child.
I see the spirit of Christmas in the faces of all the people
in those wonderful local civic organizations that. volunteer
their time, their toil and, sometimes, their money, too, just
to put on a show, a festival or a celebration to bring bright
smiles and happy times to whole communities who may never
know their names or understand their gift; to those who
spend their time making our town and our communities love-
lier by planting beautiful flowers and towering shade trees.
I see the spirit of Christmas on the faces of families headed
to church on Sunday morning and on the faces of the faith-
ful singing along at the all-night gospel sings.
I see that spirit on the faces of the old gentlemen gathered
in the town square, sharing smiles and tales of long ago.
I see the spirit of Christmas in the faces of people who
have, for a little while, put aside their politics, their pride
and prejudices, in order to celebrate the birth of a child in a
humble stable over 2,000 years ago a birth that has changed
the world and shaped the founding of this nation.
Some may celebrate a holiday, but me and my family wish
for you a very merry Christmas, full of peace, prosperity and
goodwill, and the hope that all year long, you'll keep the
Christmas spirit and remember that Christ was love.

Editor,
I would like to invite everyone to attend the Christmas
Eve service at First United Methodist Church beginning at
5 p.m.
The communion offering will go to the United Methodist
*Children's Home. The goal this year is $9,000.
This will be a good way to start your Christmas celebra-
tion. I hope to see you there. Marianne Hussey

Editor,
I have been reading a bit about certain people determined
to stop the mention of Christ and Christmas or anything
related to our wonderful Lord and Savior. I know one place
where none of them can get to and make this a "win for
them." Know where that is? It is in our hearts.
Today, someone sent me the following e-mail and immedi-
ately I thought of these letters to this good paper and de-
cided to share this with all of you.

The real 12 days of Christmas
People often think of the Twelve Days of Christmas as the
days preceding the festival.
Actually, Christmas is a season of the Christian Year that
lasts for 12 days beginning December 25 and lasting until
January 6, the Day of Epiphany, when the church celebrates
the revelation of Christ as the light of the world and recalls
the journey of the Magi.
From 1558 until 1829, people, in England were not allowed
to practice their faith openly. During this era someone wrote
"The Twelve Days of Christmas" as a kind of secret catechism
that could be sung in public without risk of persecution.
The song has two levels of interpretation: the surface mean-
ing plus a hidden meaning known only to members of the
church. Each element in the carol is a code work for a reli-
gious reality.
1. The partridge in a pear tree is Jesus Christ.
2. The two turtledoves are the Old and New Testaments.
3. Three French hens stand for faith, hope and love.
4. The four calling birds are the four gospels.
5. The five golden rings recall the Torah (Law) the first
five books of the Old Testament.
6. The six geese a-laying stand for the six days of Cre-
ation.
7. Seven swans a-swimming represent the seven-fold Gifts
of the Spirit.
8. The eight maids a-milking are the eight Beatitudes
(Matt. 5:3-12).
9. The nine ladies dancing are the nine Fruits of the Spirit
(Gal. 5).
10. The ten lords a-leaping are the Ten Commandments.
11. Eleven pipers piping stand for the eleven faithful dis-
ciples.
12. Twelve drummers drumming symbolize the 12 points
of belief in the Apostles.
There you have it, the hidden meaning of the "Twelve Days
of Christmas" and the secret behind the song.

Regardless of the pressures of the times now, let us keep
Christ first in our hearts. God bless and Merry Christmas
everybody. Helen Peterson

Editor,
A few years ago there was a TV ad where the lady said,
"Where's the Beef?". Your editorial of Dec. 8 has me saying,
"Where's the Beef?". You stated "I would like to say that we
should trust the county commissioners, but some of them
are so pro-development that it's difficult to put much trust
in their oversight." You have printed all five commissioners
with your brush of suspicion without specific facts. Which.
of the commissioner's are "pro-development"? You should
pin point you accusations, otherwise, you leave the door open
for the rumor mill to start.
Can you define "pro-development" for your readers? If an
individual/developer comes before the BCC with a project,
and has followed all the rules, abided by all the regulations
established by the state, and county, paid all the fees, and
met all requirements of the law, and a commissioner votes
to approve the project even though they might personally
disagree with it, are they "pro-development"? Could. they
not be protecting the county against a costly lawsuit that
could follow a negative vote? Are they not abiding by their
oath of office to serve without bias, all the citizens of the
county? If the laws, regulations and rules do not suit us, we
need to change them, not put the taxpayers in jeopardy to
satisfy a desire to hold development in check.
Let me make it clear that I do not favor unregulated
growth, or unmanaged development. The proper growth/
development of Walton County is a dilemma that has per-
plexed our elected officials for years. I totally agree with your
assessment that Mrs. Blackshear and her crew are provid-
ing professional, knowledgeable, and timely improvements.
However, I do think that individuals who follow the rules,
which we establish, are entitled to their rights.
Another statement in your editorial needs clarifying, "I
also fear that some commissioners are voting to approve
amendments that they know almost nothing about and do
not understand well enough to explain their position, if
asked." To which of the commissioners are you referring?
Did you question them on a particular amendment? If so,
which ones and what were the responses? Again, you have
put forth an allegation which covers five individuals with-
out facts to substantiate it.
I do not know all five commissioners well enough to make
a blanket assumption their abilities to comprehend all mat-
ters coming before them. However, I do have first hand knowl-
edge, based upon sitting with the individual in forums, of
one of the five and their knowledge of growth management/
development in our county. I can assure you that the indi-
vidual commissioner to whom I allude is eminently quali-
fied to comprehend and vote on matters pertaining to growth
in our county. Your quote above places this commissioner's
integrity and abilities, along with the other four in question
throughout the county.
"As part of the commissioner's plan to stamp out unem-
ployment by hiring every person in Walton county." Can we


take this statement to indicate that you disapprove of the
hiring of individuals in particular positions in the county? If
so, can you please be a little more specific. Could you enu-
merate the positions which you feel do not need to be filled,
or the individuals which are not needed.
The last part of the editorial highlights your "Democrat"
state of mind by reaching out to "Bush Bash". I failed to see
the relevance of the last few paragraphs of the piece. But
then, expressing political views is a right that is guarded
very closely by the press.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, DECEMBER 22, 2005


Quick work saved life


By: ROBERT W. KING
Liberty Fire District
What started out to be a
routine visit to family on
Smith Road for an Argyle
firefighter, turned into a mat-
ter of life or death.
Around 8 p.m. on Dec. 14,


2005, Argyle firefighter
Kenny Reynolds was headed
north on Smith Road when
he noticed a young boy wav-
ing his arms, but he was by
him before the thought
struck him that the boy may
need help with something.


He turned his truck around
and returned to where the
boy was seen and looked for
him but all he saw was a
hand reaching out of a hole
in the ground and slapping
the ground. He exited his ve-
hicle and raced over to see


Gorilla impersonator seen in Darlington


By BRUCE COLLIER
The state Fish and Wildlife
Commission's (FWC) law en-
forcement division received
an unusual call from the
Darlington area around De-
cember 8.
FWC spokesman Stan
Kirkland reported that inves-
tigators Dan Hahr and Ken
White responded to a com-
plaint of a gorilla roaming
the area. Investigation and
inquiry revealed that the go-
rilla was merely a man, go-


ing ape.
Kirkland said that two
men, residents of a small
trailer, came up with a plan
to scare another resident, an
apparently nosy neighbor.

The men located and pur-
chased a gorilla suit online,
then informed the neighbors
that they had an "ornery"
gorilla. Word spread.
Dressed in gorilla garb, one
man rode around the commu-
nity in the back of a truck,


beating on the truck and
making noise.
The men admitted their
prank to the officers. No
charges were made. "There's
no law that says you can't
wear a gorilla suit," said
Kirkland.
He added, "I've seen better
gorilla suits."
Asked whether alcohol
might have been involved,
Kirkland said,"I can only
guess."


what the problem was and
saw the boy in the hole.
The boy asked for help with
his brother that was covered
up by sand in the bottom of
the hole. Without regard for
his own life he jumped into
the hole and began moving
dirt out of the way.
Before he jumped in the
hole he had presence of mind
to notify EOC of the emer-
gency and asked that medics
and Liberty Fire be dis-
patched to the scene on
Smith Road for confined
space entrapment with pos-
sible trauma to body.
The EMS Supervisor and
an EMS crew were dis-
patched along with Liberty
Volunteer Fire Department
to the scene. Upon arrival of
the EMS unit, Melissa
Brown jumped into the hole
to assist Mr. Reynolds in the
lifesaving attempt. Within
two minutes the first mem-
ber of Liberty Fire arrived on
scene and began assisting in
the recovery. EMS personnel
then called for availability of
aircraft for airlifting patient.
Within the next six min-


utes, seven more Liberty per-
sonnel arrived on scene with
shovels and such to assist. -
On scene were three pieces
of equipment from Liberty
with Liberty Attack seven
furnishing floodlight illumi-
nation to the scene. EMS also
turned their vehicle around
and used the side alley lights
for additional illumination.
Within 24 minutes the pa-
tient had been mostly uncov-
ered but was lying at an
angle.
A narrow board was passed
to workers in the hole to put
under the patient. The pa-


tient was extracted from the
hole at 9:01p.m., placed on a
full sized backboard and with
his. head stabilized was
transported to DeFuniak
Springs Airport and put
aboard an AirHeart helicop-
ter for transport to Pensacola
Trauma Center
Assisting Mr. Reynolds,
Liberty Fire District had 16
personnel and three pieces of
equipment on scene along
with the EMS supervisor and
one'ambulance and crew. Es-
timated cost of incident; does
not matter because a life was
saved.

I purchased
my home years ago. and I've
just made my last payment.
Is there anything I should do
now to ensure the record re-
flects I've paid the balance?
A: Apparently, you
had a mortgage on your home
and property with the bank,
credit union, individual, or
some other funding source.
Now that your loan has been
paid in full, a form entitled
"Satisfaction of Mortgage"
should be completed by the
nmortogae holder "nd"recorded
v. ith the clerk OT'tf'e carcuii
county in ihe couni, in v.hich the
properN, is located. In some


instances', the mortgage
holder sends the original
document to the Clerk's Of-
fice for recording and sup-
plies you a copy; however,
sometimes, the original is
sent to you.
It would be in your best
interest to make sure a prop-
erly-executed "Satisfaction
of Mortgage" is recorded
with the Clerk. This allows
an accurate chain of title in
the official records. At this
time,, the fee for recording
this instrument is: $10.00 for
the first page and $8.50 for
any additional pages.

PDL man
injured in
South Walton
By BRUCE COLLIER
A rear-end collision with an
18-wheel truck left a Ponce
de Leon man injured on the
morning of December 15.
Florida Highway Patrol
investigating trooper R.C.
Carlan reported that an 18-
wheel truck was traveling
westbound on U.S. 98. The
driver was Edward J. Davis,
63, of 3012 Tremont Street in
Montgomery, Alabama.
As Davis attempted a right
turn into the parking lot of
Ace Hardware, the trailer of
his truck was struck from
behind by another west-
bound vehicle.
The driver of that vehicle
was Zachery D. Floyd, 17, of
P.O. Box 314 in Ponce de
Leon.
Floyd was injured, and
treated at Sacred Heart Hos-
pital. Davis was not injured.
Both drivers were wearing
seatbelts, and no drugs or
alcohol were involved. Floyd
was cited for careless driving.

Series of DeFuniak


Springs burglaries


appear related


By BRUCE COLLIER
On the morning of Decem-
ber 16, DeFuniak Springs po-
lice responded to reports of
six burglaries and thefts, all
at local businesses.
DFS Police Lt. Greg Gandy
reported that the offices of
State Farm Insurance, ac-
countant Dave Johnson,
LaBamba's, Veterans of For-
eign Wars, Haircrafters, and
Walton Cycle Shop were all
burglarized. The incidents


'Alt


occurred between the hours
of 11 p.m. and 2 a.m.
In each case, entry was
made by force. Safes, cabi-
nets, and registers were bro-
ken open and cash stolen.
The evidence indicates that
all six burglaries and thefts
were done by the same per-
son or persons, and that they
were traveling on foot.

or anyone who may have
seen someone in the areas of
these businesses around the
time of the burglaries, may
call the DeFuniak Springs

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, DECEMBER 22, 2005


December 13 meeting


Paxton Town Council considers speed

limit change and scholarship program


vised the council that there
was nothing illegal being
done, but offered to further
research the issue.
Bytell also advised that the


council look at the compre-
hensive plan as part of its
January business.
The meeting adjourned at
7:50 p.m.


PAXTON TOWN COUNCIL MEMBERS, left to right, Bobby
Kemp, Ann Sexton, Tommy Mathis, Jenice Armstrong, Joe
Melton, and Mayor Wanda Smith, at the December meeting.


By BRUCE COLLIER
The Paxton Town Council's
regular meeting on Decem-
ber 13th had a fairly short
agenda, and lasted for less
than an hour.
Council members Bobby
Kemp, Ann Sexton, Tommy
Mathis, Jenice Armstrong,
and Joe Melton were present,
along with Mayor Wanda
Smith and CityAttorney Lori
Bytell.
The main issue, discussed
both at a public hearing prior
to the, meeting, and at the
regular meeting, was a pro-
posed speed limit change af-
fecting C.R. 147 East and
West in Paxton.
The proposed ordinance,
05-04, received its first pub-
lic reading at the meeting.
The ordinance would raise
the current speed limit to 40
mph on that road.
One member of the .public
expressed concern over the
effect of a higher speed limit
on children playing in the
area.
"They're not supposed to be
playing on the road," said a
supporter of the ordinance,
Councilman Melton ques-
tioned the need for an ordi-
nance, since there are speed
bumps on other streets in-
tended to slow down traffic.
Councilwoman Sexton ob-
served that the speed limit
used to be 45 mph, then was
lowered to 35 mph.
Councilman Mathis sug-
gested that Paxton have only
two speed limits, 25 and 40
mph, to make law enforce-
ment consistent.-
Following the reading of
the ordinance, four council
members voted to approve
the reading, one to oppose it.
The ordinance must be
read again before final action
is taken.
Other itmes on the agenda
were a pair of one-time re-
quests for partial waiver of
water bill service,, owing to
pipe leakage. Both were ap-
proved.
Cindy Anderson, of the
Walton County Take Stock in
Children Scholarship Pro-
,gram, addressed the meet-
ing.
Take Stock in Children is
a program that pairs volun-
teer mentors, picked from the
community, to spend an hour
a week with selected sixth-
grade students who may not
be able to attend college or a
post-secondary school be-
cause of family finances.
The students must have
good, but not necessarily out-
standing, grades, good atten-
dance, and good disciplinary
records.
The-students selected sign
a contract with the program
pledging to maintain their
grades and good attendance,
and to remain drue-free.


Students who fulfill their
contractual obligations re-
ceive a "2+2" scholarship, fi-
nancing two years at a com-
munity college and two at a
full college or university.
Anderson said that four
Paxton students had been
judged as eligible for the pro-
gram, and asked the council
to assist in seeking out quiali-
fled mentors from the com-
munity.
Mentors need not be teach-
ers or college graduates, and
will not be permitted to act
as guidance counselors or
therapists.
The mentors would act as
role models who can share
their knowledge and life ex-
perience with students. Men-
tor training would be avail-
able.
All potential mentors must
pass a background check and
be fingerprinted.
Anderson noted that Gov-
ernor Jeb Bush has already
approved state employees for
an hour's leave each week to
participate in the Take Stock
program.
Several members of the
council expressed approval of
the program, and Anderson
left an informational packet
with the council.
Other items on the agenda
included a progress report on
the ball parks planned for
Construction.
A representative from the
Dothan-based architectural
firm that is designing the fa-
cility was in attendance, with
a set of plans. A grant has
covered all costs of the con-
struction, except for lighting.
Councilman Melton sug-
gested drafting a letter to
the mayors of neighboring,
towns, asking that they con-
sider a contributing toward
financing the lighting of the
park. Melton agreed to draft


the letter.
Councilman Mathis said
that the fire department will
be getting a new, larger
firetruck.
Councilwoman Sexton
thanked all town employees
and volunteers %who had
worked on lighting and deco-
rating Paxton for Christ mas.
A motion was made and
carried approving the pur-
chase of a storage shed for
the lights and decorations.
Mayor Smith notified the
council that City Clerk Suzan


Davis had been fully certified
as a municipal clerk.
A private citizen called the
council's attention to the
building of a barbed-wire
fence on the Lake Lucille
subdivision, currently zoned
for residential low density
construction.
Concerned that the owner
might be contemplating
makinghis property pasture
land or a feed lot, 'the citizen
asked the council to look into
the owner's intention.

2005: The year of the hurricanes


Story by: CHUCK HINSON
Photos by: JOHN UTLAND
As 2005 comes to a close,
the nation and the world has
seen an unheard number of
catastrophes, disaster and
massive, widespread devas-
tation caused by the more
than two dozen hurricanes
that have hit the United
States. It has been a year of
rebuilding and tearing down,
and many don't like the way
the future looks for their
ravaged areas.
This unprecedented sea-
son started on June 8, when
the first signs of tropical
storm Arlene rolled through
the Florida Panhandle
bringing winds up to 70 miles
per hour. Then at the end, or
what they predicted would be
the end':of a busy season,
Hurricane Wilma slammed
into the southern tip of the
state on Oct. 25.
After so many devastating
hurricanes and tropical
storms that moved through
the area and throughout the
South, many decided to ride
the storm out and found out
that their decision was dead
wrong. With 26 named
storms being announced as of
Nov. 30, there are still distur-
bances blowing around in the
Atlantic, but experts say are
no threat to U.S. soil.
But, is wasn't the Weather
Channel and Dr. Death and
Destruction Jim Cantore,
that had our eyes fixed to the
television screens during the
last few days of August and
all throughout the month of
September. It was the hor-
rific devastation throughout
Lousiana and Mississippi
that brought us to our knees
and snatched our hearts onto
our sleeves.
Hurricane Katrina, which
some say means "cleansing,"
lived up to her name. With
top winds of 175 miles an
hour, wave surges upwards
of 30 feet and wiping out an
estimated $400 billion in real
estate, businesses, tourism
and commerce, Katrina was
one lady that had the country
standing on edge.
Just a few weeks after
Katrina blew through and
covered up the city of New
Orleans with water, Hurri-
cane Rita added more insult
to injury by taking out an-
other part of Louisiana and
pounding the southwest cor-
ner of the state's coast line
with 175 mile an hour winds.


The two most powerful
storms hit the same state in
less than a month and the
newspapers, television sta-
tions, radio stations, maga-
zines and all the media out-
lets poured onto the scene to
get the best shot and the
most compelling story.
Sometimes looking Like a
three-ring circus, the hurri-
cane showed all sorts of de-
struction in the Big Easy,
ranging from dead bodies
lying in the streets, to houses
under five feet of water. It
was a disturbing and surreal
look at how a city is crippled
after a massive dose of
mother nature's fury.
But for many, New Or-
leans was the only sight they
saw after Hurricane Katrina
blew through. The rescues,
the fundraisers, the tele-
thons, the live talk shows
from "ground zero, or what
is better known as the civic
center and Superdome, all
focused on New Orleans.
Violence had overrun the
city, citizens were outraged
at the government's re-
sponse to the crises, rescue
and recovery was taking way
too long and the risk of ill-
ness was growing by the
hour. There seemed to be no
way to escape the tragedy.
It was New Orleans
against the world.
Little did many people
realize, but this was the first
time our government and
country had ever dealt with
such a horrific natural catas-
trophe. Together, the coun-
try learned about faith from
those trying to assist in the
recovery and rebuilding, and
respecting orders given by
authorities to evacuate im-
mediately.
But the Missisippi Gulf
Coast is one place that seems
to have been-pushed to the
back of the media burner.
Not flashy, historic or a tour-
ist destination, they seemed
to have been forgotten.
But for thousands along
the Mississippi Gulf Coast
that are still living in tents,
using outside toilets, having
to bring in water from a pass-
ing truck and many still liv-
ing with no power or gas,
they have not forgotten. The
pictures and the scenes from
over three months ago still
haunt them and the thought
of how long it will take to
rebuild frightens them.
The residents of Biloxi,


Gulfport, Waveland, Ocean
Springs and other cities in
that vicinity, had been thriv-
ing on the influx of tourists to
the casinos that dotted their
coastline. It was a never-
ending flow of people in and
out of Harrah's, The Grand,
The Imperial Palace, that
reopened the first of Dece-
meber, and other casinos,
shops, restaurants and con-
cert venues.
But now the state has had
a wake up call and the fact
that the state is loosing more
than $500,000 a day in reve-
nue, as made an impact on
the economy, the govern-
ment and the residents.
The state of Mississippi
has recently passed a bill for
those casino owners and or-
ganizations to build on land.
But even with the thousands
of men that will soon be con-
verging on the Mississippi
Coast to begin this task, it
will take several years before
that area is ready to open for
business.
Not just the gaming indus-
try was hurt,, the shipping
industry suffered, too. The
industry relies on the ports of
Biloxi, Gulfport and Pass
Christian to import and ex-
port their goods all over the
world.
Slowly, the industry is be-
ginning to return to the re-
gion, but will take years be-
fore it can be up and running
and supplying jobs and prod-
ucts like it did before that
fateful day.
One of the biggest prob-
lems that the Crescent City
and those towns and cities in
Mississippi face is the decline
in population. Government
officials, from the governor
down to the city councilman,
fear that since many of the
people have received their in-
surance checks and funding
.from FEMA, they are just
going to pack up and move
away.
Many have already done
just that due to the major
devastation that has oc-
curred and the slow process
of clean-up and rebuilding.
Recent News reports sug-
gest that some lots in the
Biloxi/Gulfport area that are
considered to be the commu-
nity to reside in, lots and
acreage are being sold at 90
percent less than their value
only six months ago. The
owners are getting their
checks, selling it off quickly


and moving out of the area.
Now analysts say that in
about three years, the econ-
omy will once again be boom-
ing in those areas, the devas-
tation and destruction will
be cleared away and life will
return. Many people ques-
tion what type of life will
they have to go back to.
With bridges still toppled,
debris still being hauled
away in flatbeds, homes still
waiting to be demolished
and residents still having to
live outside their home state,
many are concerned about
the future of the Mississippi
Gulf Coast.
Government officials are
assuring those residents,
tourists, business owners
and citizens, that help is out
there and is own the way.
Like any great catastrophe,
it all takes time and pa-
tience.
For many, the destruction
was too much and they don't
want to risk it again. Others,
are willing and wanting to
rebuild the area and say that
the Gulf Coast will be better
and safer than ever when
they are finished.
The pictures that are in-
cluded in this story are ex-
clusive to the DeFuniak Her-
ald/Beach Breeze newspa-
per. These shots were taken
by photographer John Rut-
land of Gulfport, MS, just
days after Hurricane Ka-
trina made landfall along
the Mississippi Gulf Coast.

RESEMBLING A BOMB BLAST, parts ofHwy. 90
along the Mississippi Gulf coastline, lie in ruins.
An American flag was placed in hope and memory
of those people and places that had been lost.


LITERALLY AT THE END of the track,
this railroad track was twisted, destroyed,
and leveled over both land and water This
type of destruction also played a big role
in the local economy as Hurricane Katrina
dealt a tough blow to the import and ex-
port business along the entire Gulf Coast
region.


L _3


IT WAS HARD TO IMAGINE for many boat own-
ers, to find their investments in yards, hundreds of
feet away from where they left them. This boat was
found nearly a mile away from its origin.,


MILES AND MILES OF DEBRIS lit-
tered both sides of the streets in this
Gulfport neighborhood. The water surge
destroyed nearly everything in its path.


q ~~f3 ..-'.

.,.


Like a puzzle, this row of condos in Gulfport, couldn't withstand the high winds
and surge of Hurricane Katrina, and buckled under the pressure.


WHAT LOOKS LIKE A REALLY BAD yard sale, this house seemed to not only
be gutted by the surge of water, it collected many items of its neighbor's furni-
ture. This type of disaster was seen all throughout the Mississippi Gulf Coast.


HAVE A SEAT 20 feet above sea level. This couch
was spotted in the upper branches of a pine tree
and was a result of a 15-20 foot wave surge.


BUMPY ROADS AHEAD. This was one of many
roads and bridges that was cracked, toppled and torn
to shreds due to surge from the gulf. Hurricane
Katrina crippled traffic fl/7ui in and around the gulf
coast area. TrCafic still is making detours to entcr the
area.

evening the graduating class
of 1965 from Walton Senior
High School held their 40th



Happy Birthday

Al awMaw.&
P4-


reunion.
The Chautauqua Center
was the setting for this
memorable occasion. Nostal-
gic mementoes from that era
and that graduating class
were seen throughout the
building. Looking back at
some of the events and hap-
penings that took place dur-
ing that time, it was like be-
ing there all over again, said


several of the classmates.
Everyone. was eager and
excited to visit and remember
with all the classmates. They
laughed, talked, and even
cried. Some hadn't been seen
in years. The evening was a
big success.
The class thanks Jami
Corbin for catering the affair.
She provided such an awe-


some array of dishes. The
football mums provided and
placed all around were a wel-
comed sight (homecoming
corsages). Greg Spikes gra-
ciously provided the plants
that decorated the building.
The class also would like to
thank the reunion committee,
who worked diligently for
months to make it happen,
Eugene Ray, Glenda Butts
Geoghagan, Brenda Rowe
Paul, and Carolyn Pitman
Brown.

Homecoming is scheduled
for Jan. 28. Fellow class-
mates and friends PLEASE
plan to meet at the school at
2 p.m. on that day to get
reaquainted, visit, and par-
ticipate in the homecoming
activities.


If anyone is in contact with
any of the class members,
please relay this message to
them. For additional infor-
mation-or interest in helping
with plans for the occasion,
contact June, at 892-2615.


Most families have certain
traditions that they continue
each Christmas, and the
Stanley House family is no
different.
Judging was done on the
resident's annual "door deco-
rating" contest on Friday,
Dec. 16. First place was
awarded to employee Kara
Reed for her church and an-
gels. Second place went to
Sue Clausen, for her "Christ-
mas Memorys." Honorable
mention went to Juanita
Casady for her .door of her
grandchildren.
The afternoon continued
with the annual resident and
employee Christmas party.
The residents retreated to
a bountiful lunch buffet and
presents supplied by the em-
ployees, who each make their
favorite dish to share. Cindy
McKinley, executive director,
said, "The employees of
Stanley House have the op-
tion to have their own tradi-
tional Christmas party, but
each year they choose to
share their party with the
residents." Vanessa Wilbur,
dietary director said, "Christ-
mas is all about sharing with


your loved ones, so that is
what we do."
The residents also shared
prime rib dinner with their
families last Thursday, Dec.
8. "Family Night," another
tradition, occurs every three
months, but Christmas is al-
ways the best. Families drive
in from Alabama and Geor-
gia to share this evening with
their loved ones. The high-
light of the evening is the tra-
ditional rendition of "The
Twelve Days of Christmas."
One has never quite heard
this favorite Christmas tune
sung like it is sung at the
Stanley House. Each table of
guests gets a verse to sing.
Every time that verse is re-
peated, that same table must
sing their lines;
. The residents have also
been treated to a trip around
the Lakeyard to enjoy
"Christmas Reflections," and
on Saturday, Dec. 10, Marga-
ret Wooten participated in
the annual Christmas pa-
rade.
By the time Christmas is
here, the residents and em-
ployees will be ready for a
much-needed rest.

Chicky Lawson honored with Paul Harris fellowship


Elaine 'Chicky' Lawson was
honored by her husband,
Rotarian Chuck Lawson,
with the distinguished Paul


Harris Fellow award at a re-
cent Rotary luncheon. The
recognition is sought by all
Rotarians and is named for
the founder of Rotary Inter-


national, Paul Harris. tions to the foundation and,
Rotarians make contribu- when reaching a set bench-


mark, are then recognized for
their support.
The Rotary Foundation
prides itself on working to
change lives in meaningful
ways and by bridging the di-
vide among people to foster
world understanding and
peace. Rotarians, through
their spirit of volunteerism
and generous giving, remain
at the heart of the foundation
mission. Some of their goals
are to eradicate polio and
other diseases in the world,
feed the hungry, and educate
children and adults.


Lawson received a com-
memorative certificate and a
Paul Harris Fellow pin and
medallion. When asked by
the members if she knew
about the fellowship, she re-
sponded, "No! Chuck invited
me to the Rotary meeting, but
said nothing about the gift of
the fellowship.".
The DeFuniak Springs Ro-
tary Club meets Wednesdays
at noon at McLain's Family
Restaurant. Anyone inter-
ested in learning more about
Rotary are welcome to at-
tend.


Christmastime In My Town

It's Christmastime in my town,
with an animated show.
Take a drive around the lake,
see the poinsettias glow!
Angels with their gold trumpets,
are standing under the trees.
A display of cute dolphins
is seen jumping in the breeze.
Flamingos and some palm trees,
are helping to light the night.
Santa Claus and his reindeer,
give kids a magical sight.
A Ferris wheel with snoopy,
is spinning for all to see.
Some tiny little squirrels,
help make this a memory.
Then there's Doctor Suess's cats
all dressed in holiday fare.
A coach with lighted horses,
can also be found out there.
Soldiers standing straight and tall,
proudly hold drums at their side,
next to them our country's flag,
with its colors does abide.
Three wise men are a walking
to where the baby was born.
The manger tells the story,
of that blessed Christmas morn.

A Soldier's Christmas Prayer
Christmas seems so far away,
home is always on our'minds.
Some soldiers died here today
walking on the enemy lines.
I know the children are excited.
I pray they stay that way.
We'll continue fighting for you,
and peace on your special day.
When I get home, I want to see
my baby son that was born.
I want to hold and kiss my wife,
before the next Christmas morn.
We never know when driving
if we'll be ambushed or killed.
So say some little prayers for us,
when your stocking is all filled.
I'll stand .guard on this battle front,
hoping to make your future bright.
I'll sleep in this dirty foxhole,
thinking of you on Christmas night!
By Mary Ann Whiddon

Author speaks at WMS


By BRUCE COLLIER
Adrian Fogelin, author of
five published children's
books, visited and spoke to
classes at Walton Middle
School (WMS) on December
7.
' Fogelin began her day at
WMS in the school's media
center, signing copies of her
works for some appreciative
fans. Several requested a
photo with the author, who
sat for a group shot with four
of her young readers.
At 8 a.m., Fogelin began
the first of six meetings with
groups of \ IS students. The
students came in mixed
classes, and listened to
Fogelin read from her books,
and talk about the life of a
writer.
"How many like to write?"
she asked the first group. A
few hands were raised.
"How many like to read?"
More hands were raised.
Fogelin spoke briefly ofher
childhood, specifically her
efforts to keep and finish dia-
ries that she received every
year from her mother. Her
mother was a writer, and
Fogelin credits her with nmak-

mal thing to do."
After years as a painter
and stone carver, Fogelin
worked as an illustrator for
the Baltimore Zoo, then
moved to the Florida Keys,
where she and her family
lived aboard a boat. She
makes her home now in Tal-
lahassee.
Fogelin's five published
works are Crossing Jordan,
Anna Casey's Place in the

The Cains


Uplifting old-time



gospel sing held


By ROBIN NEWTON
The small sign at the Wal-
ton County Fair building,
"Gospel Sing, Sat. 19, 6 p.m."
gave no indication of the up-
lifting, spiritual event that
was taking place inside. On
Saturday evening, an old
fashioned gospel sing was
held in the entertainment
room at the fair building. The
event was hosted by "Gospel
in Song" a collection of
twelve gospel groups in the
NW Florida/southern Ala-
bama area. They sponsor gos-
pel sings throughout the area
and this was the first one
held at the Fair building.
Saturday evening, four
groups performed for an au-
dience of about seventy-five
people.
Jeff Cain, of Cain Minis-
tries, was the emcee for the
evening. The performances
were enhanced by his quiet
humor and words of encour-
agement. Flint Harrelson
was the "tech guy", making
sure microphones and back
up music were at peak per-
formance.
Jeff and Flint started the
evening off with an old fash-
ioned sing-along. As folks
were finding their seats and
getting comfortable, Jeff
played guitar and Flint led
the audience in several
songs.
The group "Blood Bought"
took the stage and had the
audience on their feet with
the 'very first song. The
group, from Opp, AL, consists
of Charlotte Wyatt, Jason
Barrow, Holly Vaughan and
Charles Mallory. Their goal
is to "have a good.time in the
Lord."
The voices of the Harrelson
Family have a harmonizing
quality like no other. The
family comes from Enon, a
small community just out-
side of Andalusia, AL. Mem-
bers are Flint, Christine, and
their sons, Shane and Shaun.
Their rendition of "I Can't
Feel at Home in this World
* Anymore" had the audience
on their feet once again.
Smooth gospel is Ike
Gilmore. And smooth is the
perfect description of this
Saxophone sound. Listening
to old favorite gospel tunes on
the saxophone is, in a word,
soothing. As he began to
play, folks in the audience
were singing softly and smil-
ing broadly. When the
rhythm became more upbeat,
the audience was tapping
their feet in time to: the mu-
sic.
Ike,has been playing with
gospel in song for about three
years.
The Cains were the finale
of the evening. Jeff Cain,
Kara Ellis, Sherry Ellis, Jeff
Burton, and Ray Dotson of-
fered the familiar harmonies
of old fashioned gospel sing-
ing. Jeff Burton is the new-
est member of the group, but
he is not new to gospel sing-


:.--- "


ing, Ray sings bass and the
group performed two of the
songs that he has
written. Sherry and Kara,
mother and daughter, bring
the sweet feminine sounds to
the group.
Several folks won door
prizes at the end of the
evening. Three CDs of gos-
pel music were handed out to
each winner.
More information about
gospel in song can be found
on their website: http://

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, DECEMBER 22, 2005


JULIETTE BASS with one of her four French classes at


Walton High School.


High school French teacher came

a long way to Walton County


By BRUCE COLLIER
Juliette Bass teaches
French at Walton High
School'in DeFuniak Springs.
She's about as far away from
her birthplace as it is possible
to be.
Bass is a native of Mada-
gascar, a small island off the
east coast of Africa. Born in'
a small village, she had to
travel to larger cities to at-
tend middle and high school.
The native tongue of Mada-
gascar is Malagassy, related
to the languages.of Malaysia
and Indonesia.
In its often turbulent his-,
tory, Madagascar has hosted
the Englishandbeen colo-
nized by the French. As a re-


"JOYEUX NTOEL" as Bass.
leads class in French Christ-
mas carols.


sult, the people absorbed
both of those languages.
Bass grew up speaking
Malagassy, and learned En-
glish and French in middle
school. She learned German
in high school.
She left the island in 1975
when she married Ira Bass,
from Bonifay, who was on
Madagascar managing satel-
lite communications for
NASA.
The two traveled exten-


sively over the years, living
in California, Maryland, Ha-
waii, and Germany.
Most of Bass's family left
Madagascar to study and
later take up residence in
France.
"The best schools were in
Europe," she says. "There
aren't a lot of jobs in Mada-
gascar."
The island gained indepen-
dence from France in the
1960s, then became comnmu-


nist in 1975. The communist
government fell in 1999.
Madagascar now has a presi-
dent.
"He's my first cousin," says
Bass.
Bass has been teaching at
Walton High School since
2001. She teaches four levels
of French, and believes that
"language is important."
"You need to feel a lan-
guage," she says. Her class-
room is filled with books, vid-
eos, photo books from Euro-
pean trips, and stacks of
printed handouts.
She has her classes sing
Christmas carols in French,
and watch movies like Will
Farrell's Elf with French
language dubbing.
"When I was taught math
on Madagascar, they had us
use beans to count with, and
abacuses," she says. "You felt
the numbers."
Along with the Spanish
teacher, Bass heads the high
school's International Club,
which prepares French and
Spanish meals, watches
films, andtakes field trips.
"I encourage [the students)
'to travel to France and
French-speaking countries."


Bass flips through one of
several scrapbooks contain-
ing clippings, tickets, bro-


chures, menus, and photos.
"I love to take pictures,"
she smiles.

His name is


Prince of Peace


By Dr. Robert M. Jaye

The five names given to
Christ, in the prophesy of
Isaiah in 9:6, are not repeti-
tious. As "Wonderful" He is
the awesome one. As "Coun-
selor" He points to all things
right and best. As "the Mighty
God" He is very God of very
God. As "Everlasting Father"
He is the provider, protector


and disciplinarian of His chil-
dren. As "Prince of Peace" He
gives divine calm to those who
trust Him.

Christ is the promise of
peace. The world at large
knows little peace, and many
sit in darkness asIsaiah said
in 9:2. Where is peace and the
light which the world needs?
Isaiah answered in our texts,


"The people that walked in
darkness have seen a great
light....Unto us a child is born;
unto us a Son is given: and
His name shall be
called....Prince of Peace."
Isaiah gave a promise, and on
that first Christmas, peace
came.
The promise was fulfilled.
The ancient Talmud said,
"Give no help to the heathen
or a shepherd." I Peter 5:5
said, He...giveth grace to the
humble. The first ones to
hear of the birth of Christ was
certain humble shepherds
who watched their flocks by
night.
The promise' was pro-
claimed by angels. For the
shepherds the darkness be-
came like noonday. The an-
gel of the Lord said, "Fear not:
for Behold, I bring you good
tidings of great joy... For unto
you is born this day in the city
of David a Savior..." An an-
gelic host joined the angel of
the Lord and said, "Glory to
God in the highest, and on
earth peace...."
Some say the angels lied,

Paxton

boys fall

to Rocky

Bayou

60-53
by PATRICK CASEY
The Paxton boys basket-
ball team led Rocky Bayou for
three quarters only to be
outscored 24-8 in the final
period as the Knights rallied
for a 60-53 district win.
Paxton used ten 3-point
baskets to build a 45-36 lead
after three quarters only to
succumb to full-court pres-
sure in the fourth quarter.
The Knights used a stifling
press in the final period that
slowed the Paxton offense as
Rocky Bayou rallied for their
fifth win of the year.
Danny Campbell scored 15
points to lead the Bobcats, but
Campbell was saddled with
fouls throughout the contest
and had to spend a good part
of the second and third quar-
ters on the bench to avoid
fouling out. Drew Geoghagan
picked up the slack with 12
points and Andrew
Geoghagan added 10, but the
Knights countered with four
players in double figures, led
by Tyler Huisken and his 18-
point effort.
The Knights hit 23-of-37
free throws as Paxton(4-6)
had to foul late to try and
rally from a 4-point deficit in
the final two minutes. The
Bobcats suffered from turn-
overs and poor shooting in the
final quarter as Rocky
Bayou's superior size limited
Paxton to outside shots the
.entire night.
The Paxton boys .will be off
over the Christmas holidays
but will return to action on
January 5 at EastH-Mill for a
7:30 p.m. district contest.


Walton teams post victories


The Walton boys basket-
ball team went 3-1 last week
as they improved their over-
all record to 8-2 while the
Walton girls had a 2-1 record
to climb closer to the .500
mark with a 5-6 record.
After losing to Baker 53-38
on Monday, the Walton Lady
Braves posted home victories
over Vernon 71-49 and Rocky
Bayou 58-37. Walton had
their best team effort of the
season against the Knights
on Saturday as eight of the
ten players on the roster
scored in the contest. Betsy
Stevenson scored 14 points to


lead the way as Walton domi-
nated the boards for their sec-
ond win over the Knights this
season.
The Walton boys basket-
ball team defeated South
Walton 60-35 for their first
district win of the season,
then ran into an undefeated
Laurel Hill team that upset
the Braves at home 71-58.
Walton then claimed wins
over Niceville 56-50 and Port
St. Joe in overtime 69-68 in
Milton to pick up three wins
in five days. Walton rallied
from a 16-point deficit


against the Sharks to claim
the victory. Walton will meet
Port St. Joe for the second
time in ten days on Monday,
December 26, when, the
Braves and Sharks meet in
the Bay High Barnstorm
Classic opening round in
Panama City.at 3:30 p.m.
The Walton Lady Braves
will host a four-team tourna-
ment at Walton High School
on'Thursday and Friday, De-
cember 29-30. Walton will
play Bay High at 7 p.m. while
Baker will face Rocky Bayou
in the opener at 5:30.


SOUTH WALTON'S AARON KNIGHT snags the ball
before it went out of bounds during the Seahawks game
against Walton.


WALTON'S ASHTON CAMPBELL moved the ball down
the court for the Braves on their way to a victory over
intracounty rival South Walton. Final score, 60-35

Developers get green light


THIS MAYBE THE RESULT if the local beach restoration project is required to "skip" a
few. beachfront properties when renourishment sand is pumped onto Walton County west
end and Destin beaches next month. When properties on either side of one lot were restored
on the Pzlm Beach County beach front pictured, a "lake of stagnant water formed on the
beach side of the property.


Beach project



opponents warn



against trespass


By DOTTY NIST
While most beachfront
property owners on the storm-
eroded west end of Walton
County and the City ofDestin
are eagerly awaiting some
renourishment sand, a few
homeowners are putting res-
toration project proponents on
not ice to stay offltheir property
Attorneys for these
homeowners contacted the
Walton County Board of
County Commissioners BCC,)
on Dec. 1 to let them know that
they are denying them permis-
sion "to enter their private
property for any purpose." The
attorneys' correspondence was
also addressed to beach resto-
ration project engineer Bruce
Taylor and Great Lakes
Dredge & Dock Co., project
contractor.
The letter states that any
instance of trespassing of
these parties, their employees
or agents will be reported to
law enforcement and will be
prosecuted.
'Construction easements
from property owners in the
project area are required in
order for the renourishment to
take place on the beachfront
area next to their homes. Of
the hundreds of privately


owned lots included in the
project area, only about 15 of
the easements have not been
granted, Walton County Attor-
ney David Hallman reported
on Dec. 19. Hallman thought.
that most of those 15 were
cases of out-of-town property
owners that had been difficult
to contact.
In Walton County, only four
property owners oppose the
renourishment project. In
June theychallenged the issu-
ance of the state permit for the
project, arguing that the
project would negatively im-
pact their property rights and
affect their enjoyment of the
gulf waters. Administrative
law judge Lawrence Johnston
ruled against the challenge.
Another lawsuit filed last year
by the same property owners
in the Second Judicial Circuit,
challenges the constitutional-
ity. of the state statutes apply-
ing to beach restoration.
There has been no decision
on the latter case, but Walton
County and Destin are pro-
ceeding nevertheless with the
long-awaited restoration
project, which local officials
first began to pursue in the
mid-1990s soon after Hurri-
cane Opal hit the Gulf Coast.


Brad Pickel, beach manage-
ment coordinator for the South
Walton Tourist Development
Council, said he expects to see
sand being pumped onto the
beach by the second week in
January.
Pickel has stated that it is
possible to."go around" the
properties of owners who do
not grant construction .ease-
ments and refrain from pump-
ing renourishment sand on
their beachfront. .
On Dec. .13, attorney
Hall man brought to the atten-
tion of the BCC the fact that
doing this may cause "lakes"
of stagnant water to form on
the beachfront side of proper-
ties that opt out of the
renourishment. He said that
dead fish can collect in the
lakes and that the smell of the
stagnant water can be un-
pleasant. The situation may
continue for weeks or months
until the lakes fill up due to
the natural movement of sand
along the beach, he explained.
, District 4 Commissioner Ro
Cuchens commented that he
hopes Walton County is not,
faced with a situation like this,
particularly because of the
negative impact it could have
on tourism.

Merry Christmas


By DOTTY NIST
With development to con-
tinue, stormwater and flooding
'problems in Driftwood Estates
are now on the radar screen of
quite a few people in Waltonr
County with the ability to im-
prove matters.
This is in a large part due
to dozens of subdivision resi-
dents, whobegan bringing the
problems to the attention of
county government in early
spring 2005.
Blame for inadequacy of the
stormwater management and.
the flooding had been directed
at Olson and Associates and
Adams Homes., who have been'
developing a new phase ofthe
subdivision in the interior of.
.the Driftwood peninsula and
building new homes there.
How ever, the developer and
homebuilder were exonerated
on Dec. 13 when the Walton
County Board of County Com-
missioners (BCC) held a spe-
cial meeting to address issues
recently raised by Driftwood
homeowners.
District 4 Commissioner Ro
Cuchens noted that the Olson
Associates and Adams Homes
had been "accused of things"
for which the companies were
not to blame.
Driftwood Estates was
originally part of the
Sandestin development of re-.
gional impact ,DRIi, which,
was approved in the 1970s. In
2002, Olson and Associates
purchased the unplatted inte-
rior of Driftwood Estates,
along with 88 lots around the
perimeter of the Driftwood
peninsula. .
District 5 Commissioner
Cindy Meadows observed that
it has been difficult to separate
what are the responsibilities of
the developers with regard to
the stormwater and flooding
problems from the county's
responsibilities.
"It seems everyone is inter-'
woven," she said.
In May, after residents tes-
tified that no stormwater was
draining from the subdivision,
the commissioners suspended
the issuance of building per-
mits pending the resolution of
concurrency and stormwater
issues in the subdivision. The
ban -was lifted in August fol-
lowing an agreement between
the county, Olson and As'soci-
ates and Adams Homes to im-
prove the subdivision drainage
system.,
The developer and
homebuilder each contributed
$60,000 to help fund a
$250,000 modification to the
system that is to ,eliminate'
open drainage ditches.
According to the August
agreement, the county is re-
sponsible for maintenance of
the subdivision. roads and
stormwater drainage system.
The Dec. 13 meeting was set


up to provide answers to two
issues raised by Driftw.ood ho-
meowner Alani Osborne on
Nov. 22. Osborne had ques-
tioned whether, the drainage.
outfalls in the subdivision had
been properly permitted. He"
also asked whether Sandestin
had had the authority to close:
,an ingress/egress road shown
on the original DRI that would
have provided an alternative
access to and from Driftwood.
Estates.
County Attorney David
Hallman began the special
meeting by stating that 60
hours of staff research had
determined that the develop-
ers do have the proper permits
for the-outfalls and that
Sandestin followed proper pro-
cedure "in any material way"
in closing the access road.
Representing Olson and
Associates. Shannon Howell
stated that some of the current.
drainage problems were al-
ready in existence on the 88-
lot exterior parcel, complete
with swales, drainage system
and county-maintained roads,
when company purchased it in
2002.
Howell explained that a se-
ries of changes to the original
DRI were also approved prior
to the Olson and Associates
purchase, including density
increases. He said that Olson
plans to build 464 homes, over
300 less than the number ap-
proved for former subdivision
owner IntraWest in 1989.
David Campbell, engineer
of record for Driftwood Es-
tates, said the drainage
outfalls were in place and per-
mitted when Olson and Asso-
ciates purchased the property
and that the drainage system
for the new development was
tied to those outfalls. The in-
terior, he explained, he de-
signed using sound engineer-
ing practices, those plans be-
ing reviewed and approved by
the county and the state.
Tetra Tech had recently
been enlisted by the county as
a consultant to analyze drain-
age in the county right-of-v ay
and the drainage outfalls at
Driftwood Estates and to de-
'sign the modifications to the
drainage ditches.
Michael Bomar of Tetra
Tech reported "some signifi-
cant erosion" in the subdivi-
sion and some inadequate cul-
verts, although he noted that
many culverts in the county do
not meet level of service stan-
dards.
He reported a "lack of out-
fall" in the Buck Road area,
where the county is attempt-
ing to get a historic drainage
flow to the Choctawhatchee
Bay reopened.
Bomarsaidpermittingiig ith
the state is underway, to'
modify the roadside drainage
system by filling the drainage


ditches with gravel and estab-
lishing an underdrain system.
With this additional work
planned and plans to correct
the lack of outfall on Buck
Road, Campbell stated that his
stormwater drainage plan
works no%, although he noted
that there is standing'water in
the ditches, mainly on Ship-
wreck Road. .
SHe added, that lakes
planned for construction in the
interior as part of the develop-
n-ment of that property will help
further. by retaining
stormwater on site. Once, the
lakes are in place, stormwater
w/ ill Hlow to the outfalls only in
a storm event, he said.
Campbell said many but
not all of the ponds have been
dug and that by January all
will completed and opera-
tional.
Meadows asked if the
county had not been negligent.
w ith maintenance of roads and
the drainage system in the
subdivision, especially with
homeowners paying for this
through a municipal services
benefit unit, I BSU.,.
Hallman replied that the
MBSU had been established
for construction of the roads
and drainage system, not for
its maintenance, and that the
county finance director has
said that there are no nainte-
nance funds.
County Public Works Direc-
tor John Johnson stated that
the county is taking responsi-
bility for the right-of-tway and
existing drainage system in
the subdivision.
"This project is the highest
priority for us." he commented.
Johnson said that in accor-
dance with plans for the drain-
age system modifications, the
d i tches will be filled with stone
and then "sautered over. I
think this will be a good
start...we need to work on the
outfalls," he added
Driftwood Estates resident
Sean McBride was doubtful
that digging deeper to hold
more water would work, since
. the water table in the area is
quite high.
"The county has improve-
ments to do, in Driftwood
Estates...we'll get it done," Dis-
trict 1 Commissioner Scott
Brannon assured him.

County Planning Director
Pat Blackshear commented
that there will be inspections
by the county as development
proceeds on the interior por-
tion of the
subdivision.Meadows asked
for a commitment from public
works to work whatever hours
are necessary to get the im-
provements in place to correct
the stormwater and flooding
issues.
"You have such a commit-
ment," Johnson responded.


Dune lake advisory board plans public meeting January 21


By LEAH STRATMANN
Although there was no quo-
rum at the last meeting of the
Coastal Dune Lake Advisory
Board, a committee appointed
by the Walton County Board of
County Commissioners, the
board continued with plans for
a public workshop on Jan. 21.
The task the volunteer ad-
visory board has accepted is to
monitor the coastal dune lakes
and activities that effect the
environmental conservation of
the lakes, within the coastal
dune lake protection zone and
within areas of the watersheds
of the coastal dune lakes, ac-
cording to the county's
website.
According to Meg Nelson,
vice chairman of the commit-
tee, a coastal dune lake is "a


unique eco-system in that it
has fresh water and interfaces
with salt water. The way the
two types of water interact cre-
ates a very special biological
system." There are 15 coastal
dune lakes in Walton County:
Camp Creek, Western, Lake
Powell, Eastern, Lake Tresca,
Oyster, Allen, Stallworth, Big
Redfish and Little Redfish, Al-
ligator, Draper, Stewart,
Morrison and Deer Lake.
Nelson said, "Our goal is to
create a management plan for
each individual coastal dune
lake by involving the residents
of each lake in our efforts. We
hope to develop and imple-
ment a prioritized list of
projects to enhance the lakes
and raise public awareness of
the lakes' unique ecosystems."'


,Deer Lake has shut itself off,
from the saltwater source at
this time, according to Nelson.
Changes like this can occur
with storm activity in the area.
."The chemistry of these
lakes is very delicate," Nelson
said. "There were dune lakes
in Panama City and Destin at
one time, but they no longer
function as dune lakes due to
development. Managing a
coastal dune lake is difficult
because you are trying to bal-
ance a biological system on the
one hand and the needs of'
growth on the other." Nelson
commented that while safe-
guards are in place for the
lakes, the safeguards are not
always enforced.
I Many of the areas surround-
ing the lakes were platted be-


fore the county's adoption of a
comprehensive plan, making it
'difficult for conservation
'groups to affect development
plans. "We can only have so
'much effect on new develop-
ment," Nelson said.
The advisory board passed a
strategic plan for the next four
years and received funding
from the BCC to implement
the plan, according to Nelson.
One of the key components of
the plan is education and to
that end, the committee is
planning a public workshop on
Jan. 21, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
at the Coastal Branch Library.
The purpose of the workshop
is to introduce the committee's
plan to the public, receive in-
put from the public on how to
best implement the plan and


give the public an overview of
what the committee will be
doing in the future. Topic ar-
eas under discussion '%.'ill in-
clude lake opening permits,.
water quality monitoring, pro-
tecting of the lakes, shoreline
restoration and public access.
"Education is critical, espe-
cially to those living'on the
lakes, so they and future gen-
erations can enjoy living on
healthy lakes. Public input is
very .important. We can't do
anything without the help of
those-who live around the
lakes," Nelson said.
Nelson pointed out that the
committee works with the
Choctawniatchee .Basin Au-
thority (CBA), the Florida De-
partment of Environmental
Protection, the Florida depart-


ments of Fish and.Wildlife, the
Florida Parks Department,
and any other government
agency dealing with water
quality.
At the workshop, the com-
mittee plans to introduce Elam
Stoltzfus and watch a docu-
mentary he has made.
Stoltzfus is award winning
documentarian who's Living
Waters film has won several
awards. His web site is
www.liveoakproductions. He
is interested in creating a simi-
lar documentary for Walton
County specifically on the
dune lakes.
The public is encouraged to
attend the public workshop on
Jan. 21 to learn more about
how citizens can protect the
unique coastal dune lakes.

Walton County Snowbird News


By Nancy Gehrke
Information officer of the
Walton County Snowbirds

'To your health' as you greet
this holiday season (that's
the politically correct greet-
ing for the Snowbirds, to be
sure). Hope your travels
brought you here safe and
sound and that you eagerly
await your winter life in Wal-
ton County.
Let me point out all the
new and exciting happenings
in the Walton County Snow-
bird organization, welcoming
new arrivals to the retire-
ment scene, and our renewal
with the returning veterans.
First, registration is from
8:30 to 11:30 every Monday,
except Dec. 26, at the Faith
Assembly Church, 306
Geronimo St. On deck are the
volunteer officers to answer
any and all questions, sign-
ups for all the activities, and
payment of $6 for your mem-
bership registration.
Those returning will be
anxious to pick up all valu-
ables at the storage lockers,
Affordable Storage, 114
Sugar Dr., from 3-4 p.m. on
Friday, Dec. 30 or Mondays
in Jan, 2, 9, and 16.
As for the January general
meeting, the Grand Ballroom
Linkside Conference Center
in Sandestin has been re-
served for 10 a.m. on

tion to a short informative
meeting and the drawing of
door prizes, there will be a
performance by' David
Seering and his.new trio. Al-
low enough time for arrival
if unfamiliar with where the
Grand Ballroom is located or
look at the diagram of the lo-
cation on our 'eb site:

The key is to turn north at,
the intersection of U.S. 98 at
Sandestin. The guard at the
gate will hand out a pass for
the day. Follow the signs once
in the village limits:-: .
Volunteers are needed in
the Walton County and sur-
rounding areas, in the
schools, highway cleanup;-r
hospital, and many not-for-
profit organizations. Volun-
teer Bob Bailey of the Wal-
ton County Snowbirds has
information on these worthy
efforts during registration
and general meetings.
Something to note on the
calendar is an 11:30 Ladies
Luncheon on Wednesday,
February 15, at the Hilton
Emerald Ballroom in Sand-
estin (turn south at the inter-
section of U.S. 98 at Sandes-
tin). Co-chairs Marilyn
Hirsch and Mary Ellen
Greiten have promised the
fair sex that "Flip-Floppin' in
Florida', the theme for the
day, will produce not only de-
licious food, a wonderful at-
mosphere, but also the tal-
ents of a professional humor-
ist from Niceville, Nancy
Turner. A limited number of
$16 tickets will be sold dur-
ing the January registrations

SANTA SIGHTING WERE ALL OVER the panhandle
over the past few weeks. This jolly old St. Nick greeted kids
in Rosemary Beach.


Christmas is just a
few short days, away.
Let's not forget those
who are less fortu-
nate and those who
will not be with their
families over the
holidays.

With all the. hustle and
bustle of the season, we
sometimes forget all about
the true spirit of the holi-
days. As a nation, we are so
consumed with all the gift-
giving, shopping, holiday
parties and our own family
and friends, we often forget
about those who have no
family or cannot be with
their families.
A few years ago, I wrote a
story about a college buddy of
mine. He and hiswife bring
three or four children home
each year from a local or-
phanage to celebrate Christ-
mas. They are again doing
the same thing this year, but
with five children from two
different homes.
It is the way they and their
children celebrate Christ-
mas and share with those
less fortunate.
So many Americans will go
without this holiday season.
Either they cannot afford to
have Christmas, or they are
not near to their families.
Many of us listened Sun-
day evening to a special ad-
dress to the nation given by
President Bush. In his
speech, he expressed the
hope that our troops in Iraq
and surrounding areas
would soon be pulled out of
the country and be back on
U.S. soil in a matter ofweeks.
For many family members
and friends, the news, even
though not .in time for the
holidays, was good and prom-
ising. It made their holiday a
little brighter and gave the
troops across that region,
something to look forward to
in the next few weeks.
Back at home, it is those
that we do not hear about
that seem to be the most in
need during this time of the
year. These are the ones we
pass by numerous times dur-
ing the .week, yet always
seem to forget.
In rest homes across the
country, there are those that
have a warm place to stay, a


soft bed to sleep in and three
meals a day. They have their
physical needs taken care of,
Sbut their emotional needs
sometimes go unnoticed.
So often, .we .pass by the
retirement homes and see
the elderly outside on the
porch, waving to those mo-
torists passing by. It makes
me think about how their
lives use to be before they
moved into the home.
They smile politely and
throw their hand in the air to
make a kind gesture. They
seem happy and content to
be alive and be surrounded
by those like themselves, but
during the holidays, many
only briefly see their families
when they come to the home
to visit them. Some families
believe that as long as they
are being seen after, then
they are okay.
Lately, several of my
friends and family members
have begun including these
people in their Christmas
Day activities. It begins with
the immediate families first
to open gifts, then it is off to
the homes to spread a little
more holiday cheer.
Friends of mine have said,
"just to see their faces lighten
up when you enter the room,
if they know you, or not,
knowing that you have taken
the time to stop by just to say
Merry Christmas, just
makes their holiday season."
I have family members
who do the same thing and
say it is the most enjoyable
and rewarding act of kind-
ness they do all year. It is
their way of giving back to a
generation that has given so
much to them.
As the holidays approach
and the big day finally ar-
rives, start a new holiday
tradition and make the local
retirement and rest homes
an annual Christmas stop.
Join me in making the stops
a New Year's resolution and
an event to be enjoyed sev-
eral times throughout the
year.
With the holidays coming
to a climax and the season of
celebrating family and faith
draws near, remember those
who may not be as fortunate.
They need our support, our
love and our cheer during
this season- and all through-
out the year.
Have a safe and happy
holidays and a great new
year!

Christmas Cookie


Classic held in


Seagrove Beach


By Kris Chavez

Christmas Cookie Classic -
One holiday social. Ilook for-
ward to every year is the An-
nual Christmas Cookie Clas-
sic held in Seagrove Beach at
the home of Betty Mustachio.
In its seventh year, it's al-
ways a great time to catch up
with old friends and make
new ones. Hugs and laugh-
ter are in abundance as we
toast to one another's good
health and to girlfriends
gathering once again.We


proudly share photos and sto-
ries of grandchildren. We
play games and open pre-
sents and sample all of the
delicious appetizers...no
calorie counting allowed.

In three short hours we re-
kindle friendships that will
carry us through the coming
year. As the gathering comes
-to an end and we say our
goodbyes, I notice I hug just
a little longer what a glori-
ous feeling the spirit of
Christmas has arrived.

cost to the county. According to Pickel, the dune walkover

proved unanimously.
