First Judicial Circuit
Court judge Marci Goodman
granted First Baptist Church
of DeFuniak Springs' mo-
tion to dismiss a lawsuit
filed against the church by a
group of homeowners
The suit, Hutchins et al.. v
First Baptist Church, was
filed in connection with the
church's 2002 demolition of
a building documented as an
"historic residence."
The plaintiffs are a group of
property owners "-adversely
affected and aggrieved" by
the demolition of the build-
ing. The church razed the
100-year-old structure in or-
der to expand the church's
parking lot.
The plaintiffs claimed af-

At its monthly meeting on
Feb. 1, the Freeport Plan-
ning Board heard a variety
of requests beginning with
the Nick/Williams proposal
to change the zoning further
west along Blueberry from
estate residential to commer-
cial so that a 20,000 square
foot office building with ad-
jacent parking could be built.
Board Member Jerry
Griffith objected to the
project .-ayring it should not
be approved until the city


fected and aggrieved status
under a Florida statute de-
fining that term. Plaintiffs
also brought their action un-
der common law, alleging
damage from the church's ac-
tions and seeking injunctive
relief.
First Baptist filed a motion
to dismiss, alleging that the
statute did not apply to the
plaintiffs.
Following a brief hearing
in chambers, the judge
granted the motion, agreeing
that the statute cited did not
apply.
Goodman will allow the
plaintiffs 20 days to amend
their common law complaint.
In order to survive another
motion to dismiss, the
amended complaint must al-

approved by the Board. Ap-
proximately 40 football play-
ers from Freeport will travel

Strength and Conditioning
Clinic at the University of
Tennessee on February 24-

The board approved the de-
sign schemes for the new
Walton High School to be
built as well as the new el-
ementary school at Mossy
Head. The projects are cur-
rently about a week ahead of
schedule, but still have a long
way to go until ground-
breaking ceremonies.
The school board approved

Commissioners. It was, re-

right of way and widens the

deny the request failed for
lack of a second and the
board voted to send the pro-
posal to the council with a
recommendation ror ap-
proval. City Planr Latilda
Henninger will emphasize
the needs for improvement to

request that the project be
watched closely.

ment will become the north-


lege the plaintiffs' specific re-
lationship to the property,
and must show a heightened
or "particularized" injury.
Lorrianne Bytell, along
with Allan Ramey, repre-
sents the plaintiffs.
"We're disappointed," said
Bytell, "but the judge
granted us 20 days to
amend." Bytell expressed
confidence that the amended
complaint will state a proper
cause of action.
Michael P. Dickey, attorney
for First Baptist, said that
the plaintiffs will have a
"tough time" amending the
complaint to show the requi-
site particularized injury.
The judge instructed the
defendant's attorney to draw
up and submit a written or-


der for her signature. That
order will contain the court's
reasons for granting the mo-
tion.
The lawsuit was filed in
2005, following an often emo-
tional controversy and pub-
lic discussion over the deci-
sion to demolish the resi-
dence, which stood at the cor-
ner of Live Oak and Crescent
A;enues.
Some called the residence
a structure of "architectural
.significance," while others
regarded it as a rundown
eyesore;
Goodman is the latest in a
series of judges to be as-
signed this, case. Her prede-
cessors recused themselves
for various reasons.

Portland Community Center
property had never been
deeded from the Walton
County Board of Education
to the Trustees of the Port-
land Community Center.
Within the last 18 months a
grant was received by the
county to renovate the exist-
ing facility and add a small
addition to the original build-
ing. Over the Christmas holi-
days, someone broke into the
facility and ruined the major-
ity of the interior improve-
ments that were done under


the grant. The community
center has asked for assis-
tance from the County since
they do not have the funds to
repair the damage that was
caused by the vandals.
Board members voted to
name the proposed school in
Mossy Head the "Mossy
Head School" for a point of
reference.
The next scheduled meet-
ing of the Walton County
School Board will be on
Thursday, February 23, at 5
p.m.


From there, Powers moved

A FEB. 7PRESS conference.called by Walton County Sheriff
Ralph Johnson marked the completion of a several-month-
long investigation in to a series of vandalism incidents across
Walton County that had begun in Oct. 2005.




Countywide


vandalism


cases solved



by WCSO


By DOTTY NIST
Four youths, three local
and one an Alabama resi-
dent, are facing felony and
misdemeanor charges in con-
nection with a series of van-
dalism and burglary inci-
dents in various locations
across Walton County, inci-
dents that began in October
of last year.
Since the attacks began,
Portland Community Center
was hit by vandals on two
different occasions and two
local churches, St. Rita's
Catholic and St. Nicholas by
the Sea, were vandalized and
defaced. Other locations that
fell victim to the destructive
incidents were the Chautau-
qua Building, Evan's Fu-
neral Home, Juniper Lake
Park, the Regional Utilities
office, the WaterColor devel-
opment, the Magnolia Lakes
subdivision, San Juan Beach
Access, and numerous homes
and vehicles throughout the
county.
Walton County Sheriff
Ralph Johnson held a press
conference on Feb. 7 to an-
nounce the arrest of the four
individuals in connection
with the incidents, repre-
senting the culmination of
over 4500 man-hours of in-
vestigative work over more
than three months and in-
. luding efforts by the
sheriffs Crime Scene Unit
and its Criminal Investiga-
tions Division.
During the investigation,
Johnson also organized a 10-
person task force of supervi-
sors and uniformed deputies
to guard against additional
vandalism incidents..
Arrested were: Joshua
Paul Glenn, 20, of
Gaylesville, Alabama, on
warrants for two counts of
burglary, 10 counts of felony
criminal mischief, one theft
count, and 10 misdemeanor
criminal mischief counts;
Kyle Roger Smith, 19, of De-
Funiak Springs, on warrants
for two burglary counts, 10
felony criminal mischief
counts, one count of theft,
and 10 misdemeanor crimi-
nal mischief counts; Justin
Michael Naeyaert, 18, of
Freeport, on warrants of one
count of burglary, four counts
of felony criminal mischief,
one count of theft, and eight
misdemeanor criminal mis-
chief counts; and Jeremie
Lewis Doyal, 19, ofDeFuniak
Springs, on warrants for one
count of burglary and one


count of felony criminal mis-
chief.
Johnson said that all four
young men had participated
in the string of vandalism
incidents iii different combi- -
nations but that all four had
not been involved in any one
of the incidents. He added
that he has evidence that the
youths also struck locations
in Okaloosa County in a simi-
lar fashion. He and his staff
will be meeting with law en-
forcement officials from that
county to share evidence
with them.
Following their arrest,
Smith, Naeyaert, and Doyal
were transported to the Wal-
ton County Jail and remain
there pending their first ap-
pearance in court. Glenn, the
last to be taken into custody;
was arrested in Alabama and
is awaiting extradition to,
Walton County. The State
Attorney is expected to pros-
ecute the cases.
Sheriff Johnson thanked
the Florida Department of
Law Enforcement for its as4
distance with the processing
of physical evidence cong
nected with the investigation
and especially for expediting
the fingerprint analysis that
was vital to its conclusion. g
Johnson said the your
men have displayed a re,
morseful attitude since theiS
arrest. They had become aci,
quainted over the past sevy
eral months and some had
worked together, he said"
Ironically, Smith and Glenn'
are said to have met at
church.
Johnson also announced
the recent arrest of two other
teenage males for unrelated
misdemeanor criminal mis1
chief charges involving the
spray painting of traffic
signs. These included Masonr
Scudder, 18, of Santa Rosa
Beach, on warrants of two
misdemeanor criminal mis-
chief charges and another
male, a 17-year-old juvenile
whose name was not. pro-
vided and who faces the same
charges. The pair reportedly
did not know and had no con-
nection with Glenn, Smith,
Naeyaert, or Doyal. Scudder
remains in the Walton
County Jail awaiting his first
appearance in court, and the
juvenile has been released
into parental custody, accord-
ing to Capt. Stan Sunday of
the Walton County Sheriffs
Office, who participated in
the investigations.

JACKIE T. MALONE

Jackie worked tirelessly for causes
advocated by The Walton County

humanity were important to him. He
practiced what he preached. His life
was the epitome of courage, vision
and faith, and is worthy of emulation.

PERSONAL COMMENTS



EDITOR'S COMMENT:



Grading the state of education


By RON KELLEY

With FCAT testing upon us, thoughts are turned toward
education. School districts are thinking of the money they'll
get if the students do well and encouraging principals to
encourage teachers to encourage parents to encourage chil-
dren do their very best.
That's a lot of hopeful encouragement, but in Florida to-
day, everything revolves around that one test. This has
changed the way education is administered, the way teach-
ers teach and the things that children are taught. The FCAT
has become education's most important test, not only for
Florida children, but for school districts, schools and teach-
ers, too.
The problem is there is no way for one test to tell the
whole story of how a child, a teacher or a school is doing
overall. Unfortunately, because this is the current educa-
tional climate in the state, all classroom emphasis is now
on preparing for that test, even as such things as history,
social studies, music, art, drama and speech classes fall by
the wayside.
I've heard the arguments for how the FCAT, the A+ Plan
and the No Child Left Behind Act is improving schools. I've
also seen how the statistics can be manipulated and how
the annual requirements seem to change every year, plac-
ing greater and greater burdens on teachers, who must meet
those challenges at any cost.
Ignoring fairness, from a practical standpoint, I don't see
how teachers find time to teach after wading through the
mountains of paperwork that amounts to little more than,
'busy-work,' with no real purpose.
The latest plan to reduce paperwork is to buy teachers a
laptop computer. I know that I'm not the sharpest pencil in
the box, but how does that reduce the work? The same infi-
nite amount of forms must still be filled out. Maybe this is
part of the New Math and I'm just too long in the tooth to
understand.
However, it appears that I am not the only person frus-


treated by the empirical power of the FCAT. Anew survey of
Florida public school principals concluded that the state
should stop using it to hand out financial bonuses to schools
that get good grades or improve. Eighty percent of princi-
pals surveyed disagree with the idea of tying school bonuses
to FCAT grades. The report stated, "Educators, who em-
phasize teamwork at the school and district level, find these
'high-stakes' financial incentives divisive and unwelcome.
The bonuses, an idea imposed from above by non-educators,
breed resentment of the testing program."
Not surprisingly, Florida Education Commissioner John
Winn defended the bonuses that are part of the A + Plan.
"We obviously believe that rewarding high performance
is important," he said, adding that no one ever complains
when he visited schools to hand out checks. 'They should
make that recommendation to Congress," he said.
The FCAT Project report recommends that the state redi-
rect the $134 million in annual bonuses to general school'
support or special programs, modify requirements for spe-
cial education students and those who speak English as a
second language and shorten the two-week FCAT time span.
It also recommends the state study potential long term ef-
fects on requiring students to repeat a grade.
That seems like sound advice. In fact, new studies are
showing that third graders who fail and are held back a
year actually come back to do better academically than their
low-performing fellow students who are passed.
An examination of the first students held back found that
in addition to improved reading scores, retained students
also did better on the math portion of the FCAT compared
with low-performing pupils who were allowed to proceed to
the next grade. Common sense tells us that moving a child
forward without basic skills puts the child at a long-term
disadvantage.

Instead of the state grading the school system, maybe it's
time we graded the state of the education system.
Who gets an A+ now?


Editor,
This is a beginning of a New Year for the Chautauqua
Squares, with a new class and caller. Our club caller for
over the past 15 years has been Sammy Lee from Bonifay.
He has decided to resign as our caller, because he has a lot
going on at this time and thought it would be best to do this
now. The president called to tell me he was closing the club
down.
My late husband, Sid Hutcheson, and I had a major hand
in starting this club over 30 years ago. He later became a
caller for the Chautauqua Squares Club. This is something
we both enjoyed and believed in and felt that it was good
clean fun for the whole family.
I feel like I would be letting him down, and square danc-
ing, if I didn't try and see if I could find a caller and try and
preserve the square dance club here in DeFuniak Springs.
When I contacted a caller and several square dancers in
the area, they told me of a person who lives in south Ala-
bama, and who had moved there a year and a half ago. I
contacted him and he said he would be happy to come down
for a couple of weeks and see what kind of interest we had
here. His name is David Muller. He has been square danc-
ing since he was 18 and calling for over 35 years. He doesn't
have a club as of yet and really wants to help us. David has
been filling in for other clubs, when the callers would have
to be away. He has called in Dothan, Montgomery, Andalusia,
Alabama, Macon, Georgia, and several other places.
Our president and his wife, Louie and Wilma Flowers, de-
cided to join another club because they are the vice-presi-
dent of Northwest Florida Square Dance Association and
have to be a member of a club in the association that is ac-
tive. Wilma called and told me they had joined the Panama
City Club last week. I'm happy they found another club they
like and I want to wish them the best. I want to thank them
and Howard Rinker for all they have done in the past years
as our club officers.
Mildred Jennings was vice president of the Chautauqua
Squares the past two years and will step up and take over
the president's position and will be glad to help do anything
she can to preserve our club and keep it going. I am the
secretary/treasure, so that won't change.
Chautauqua Squares Club needs your help to make this
class a success. Please call me at 892-5561, after 5 p.m.,
leave a message on the answering machine, or Mildred
Jennings at 892-2576, after 4 p.m. Please, we want to hear
from you, as we are planning an Open House on February
21 and 28 at 7 p.m. in the Walton Middle School Cafeteria.
This will be a week after Valentine's Day, so mark it on your
calendar and make plans to come join us for a fun evening
and meet the caller, David Muller.

Editor,
While watching the NBC nightly news on Thursday, Feb
2, I was shocked and angered at the Islamic reaction to the
recent cartoons printed in the European newspapers. Ap-
parently, the cartoon showed a picture of Mohammed with
some type of headgear looking like a bomb on his head.
Okay, I admit it may have been disrespectful in some ways.
But, threatening to bomb people to death is an extreme re-
action for anyone in any religion. Actually, the reaction of
the Muslims was exactly what the cartoon was trying to
show in the first place. I know it was in Europe, but the
same things are happening in our country too.
When television or papers portray Jesus as a comedy fig-
ure such as in the "Rescue Me" television show, or
"Southpark" cartoons what do the Christians do? They pray
for the souls of the offenders and then go about setting an
example of forgiveness and civil decorum for others to fol-
low. Same as they have always done since the USA was
formed.
The point that I am trying to state is the following: When
our forefathers fought and'formed this nation, they did not
take into account every religion in every part of the world.
And, all of those religions' traditions, rules, and taboos.
Conversely, in today's world we are all expected to give our
respect and attention to all those other (non- Christian) re-
ligions.
Well I for one, am sick and tired of it! If you want to live
in a Christian country (which our is), then act like a Chris-
tian or at least respect our religion. If you want to practice
the Muslim or other religions, than do so quietly, or go to
the countries that practice and were based on that religion.
There are many to choose from.
In conclusion, it all boils down to this. If you can't stand
the heat, get out of the kitchen! I am proud to be an Ameri-
can Christian, and I have said what I believe to be the truth.
I can only hope that others will see it and stand up for our
way of life and not let it be disseminated by a mixture of
religious beliefs that were not here when this country
started, or do we want to end up like the middle east with
religious chaos? I am shocked and angered.

Editor,
I am a Walton County taxpayer just like the rest of you,
but most of you at the south end of the county don't know
what goes on at the north end. So I thought I would inform
most of you what is going on.
The sheriff of Walton County has hired three law enforce-
ment officers out of Geneva County. I was told that we didn't
have enough qualified law enforcement in Walton County
to hire. That's fine, but must we, the taxpayers of Walton
County, pay for the officers to drive back and forth on our
yttax dollars to Geneva, AL and Samson, AL, with gas being
. ,' $2.50 a gallon, on Walton County cars? We, the taxpayers of
Walton County, should not have to wait for an officer to come
from another state when called for help. If the sheriff must
hire officers from another state, let them drive their own
cars and trucks back and forth to the job. We, the taxpayers
of Walton, shouldn't be having to foot their gas bill.

Editor,
On TV, Florida's tourism ads promise clean white beaches
and a glistening gulf stretching across the horizon. What a
surprise Florida tourists have had this year. They've rubbed
their itchy eyes and watched bulldozers piling up dead fish
in the worst red tide episode in decades., They've seen gasp-
ing sea turtles and bloated manatees, victims of red tide.
The Gulf's sickness has dealt a blow to beachfront hotels,
for sure, and it has also sucker-punched recreational and
commercial fisherman and divers. Even North Florida's fa-
mous Apalachicola oysters were inedible for much of the year,
thanks to red tide.
Now, with red tide still lingering, your state and federal
governments are poised to issue a permit for a major new
pollution source in the Gulf, a kind of pollution that has al-
ready caused fish to change sexes.
The state Department of Environmental Protection has
issued a draft permit for one of the south's biggest polluters
-Buckeye Florida's pulp mill in Taylor County-to build a
huge pipe to send toxic waste from the black and smelly
Fenholloway River into the Gulf.
The pipe, incredible, will empty not far from the Big Bend
Seagrasses Aquatic Preserve, and outstanding Florida wa-
ter and nursery ground for mullet, sea trout, redfish, scal-
lops, oysters, clams, shrimp, blue crab and other economi-
cally important species.
Most pepplein Florida don't,know much about this crazy
plan, but they should. We still have time to stop it. A tiny
band of Taylor County citizens- as well as myself-have
filed a petition to force the state to hold an administrative
hearing on the pipeline. We point out that this pollution is
preventable and illegal. DEP's draft permit is full of special
loopholes. Incredibly, the five-year permit allows Buckeye to
ignore water quality standards for the next nine years!
EPA has proved repeatedly that Buckeye is discharging
the deadly chemical dioxin into the water, but DEP's permit
sets no limits on dioxin. And if you think that's bad then
here's the kicker: At the end of that nine years, when the
permit at long last becomes effective, DEP has a loophole for
Buckeye that will allow a special "mixing zone" for "chronic
toxicity" that extends a full three miles around the pipe. The
state is officially sanctioning a legal three-mile dead zone,
on top of the fact that the pipe will send gender-bending
chemical out into Gulf marine nursery grounds. Scientists
have documented the sex-changing fish. What they don't
know is what these chemicals will do to people.
You might think what happens in rural Taylor County won't
effect you. But it will, because those polluted marine crea-
tures will be coming to shores all over the Gulf, and around
the peninsula to the Atlantic.
We need a good dose of public outrage to stop the state's
misguided gift to the polluting Buckeye, and we need it now,
before the DEP issues the final permit. This aging pulp mill
already killed a perfectly good river-the Fenholloway once
was full of fish and had .a drinking-water bottling plant on
its bank. Let's not let it kill the Gulf, too.

DOH promotes National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day


OWC SURGICAL TECHNOLOGY students in training at.
the OWC Twin Cities Hospital Surgical Technology labora-
tory on the OWC Niceville campus learn from Dr. Dennis
Stewart, a surgeon at North Okaloosa Medical Center.


OWC surgical

technology program

receives national

accreditation


The surgical technology
program at Okaloosa-Walton
College was recently
awarded national accredita-
tion by the Commission on
Accreditation of Allied
Health Education Programs
(CAAHEP). Accreditation
means the OWC program
meets stringent standards
established by CAAHEP as
well as the American College
of Surgeons and the Associa-
tion of Surgical Technolo-
gists.
"National accreditation is
a mark of excellence for our
program," said Linda
Whitenton, associate dean of
Health Technology. "Stu-
dents can be assured that
successful completion of this
program will provide them
the requirements to safely
and effectively perform as a
surgical technologist."
The OWC Surgical Tech-
nology program is currently
accepting applications for
those who wish to begin the
program in fall 2006. The
program admits students


only once a year and space is
limited. Information sessions
will be offered Feb. 28 and
March 9 at 6 p.m. in Room
E- 130 on the Niceville cami-
pus. The application dead-
line April 3. For information
call 729-6444.
The OWC Surgical Tech-
nology program is a 12-
month, vocational program
leading to a Certificate in
Surgical Technology. It pro-
vides students with the edu-
cational background and
clinical competencies neces-
sary for safe practice in the
field. The OWC program be-
gan in the Fall of 2004 and
graduated its first students
in July 2005.
The program is part of the
Health Technologies pro-
grams at OWC which cur-
rently include an associate
degree nursing (RN) pro-
gram, a joint bachelor's in
nursing program with UWF,
and Dental Assisting. A Ra-
diography program is slated
to start in late 2006.

The Florida Department of
Health recognizes National
Black HIV/AIDS Awareness
Day (NBHAAD) on Tuesday,
Feb. 7, 2006. NBHAAD is a
nationally recognized day
designed to continue educat-
ing, counseling and testing
black Americans for HIV/
AIDS. All ofDOH's 67 county
health departments (CHDs)
in Florida will partner with
advocacy groups to provide
outreach services in order to
reach all black communities
in Florida.
"The Department of Health
and Community outreach
programs will continue work-
ing together to provide edu-
cational materials, preven-
tion and intervention pro-
grams and testing for all Flo-
ridians," said DOH Secretary
M. Rony Francois, M.D.,
M.S.P.H., PhD. "In spite of
the disproportionate impact
of HIV/AIDS in Florida's
black communities, the state
of Florida has shown an over-
all improvement in the num-
ber of HIV infections over the
past five years, which in-
cludes a drop in perinatal
HIV infection and declines in
HIV cases in both black men
and women."
This year marks Florida's
sixth-annual observance of
NBHAAD and according to
DOH's Vital Statistics Office,
black males were seven times
as likely as white males to die
ofHIV/AIDS.,The HIV/AIDS
death rate among black fe-
males was 23 times higher
than among white females
and based on current statis-
tics, AIDS i-s the leading
cause of death for black Flo-
ridians between the ages of
25-44. DOH estimates that
one in 46 blacks in the state
has HIV compared to one in
346 whites and one in 176
Hispanics.
Dr. Francois added, "We
are seeing the deadly inter-
section of at-risk behaviors,
denial, complacency and stig-
matism among blacks. Ongo-
ing risks for gay and bisexual
men, and the problems of late
diagnosis can solely contrib-


ute to the fear of isolation
and to acts of discrimination
in black communities."
DOH recommends Florid-
ians follow the ABC's of Pre-
vention below, which are
found at the website:
Abstinence No drugs and
no sex means no infection.
Being with one person or
mutual monogamy Having
sex with only one person who
is not infected means no in-
fection.
Condoms or Safer Sex -
Since abstinence and mutual
. monogamy are not preven-
tion options for some people,
safer sex, or having sex us-
ing precautions, must be
practiced.
Condoms need to be used
from start to finish during
vaginal, anal or oral sex.
DOH protects and pro-
motes the safety of all people
in Florida through the deliv-
ery of quality public health
services and the promotion of


health care standards. For
more information about HIV/
AIDS in Florida, visit DOH's

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 9, 2006


Postal

service

fights fraud

One of the fastest growing
"businesses" in America is
identity theft.-and other
fraud. Last year alone, al-
most 10 million Americans
were victims of identify theft,
a crime that cost them
roughly $5 billion.
During National Con-
sumer Protection Week, from
February 5 through Febru-
ary 11, the U.S. Postal Ser-
vice will be working hard to
educate the public about
fraudulent schemes and to
provide consumers with the
tools and information needed
to combat fraud.
In addition to identity
theft, common scams involve
Internet fraud (including
online auctions), foreign lot-
teries, investments, "free"
prizes, multilevel marketing,
work-at-home, and others.
The Postal Service and
Postal Inspectors Office are
partnering with federal,
state, and local consumer
protection agencies and local
on consumer groups to alert
the public about fraudulent
schemes.
This year's theme is
"Fighting Fraud: It's a Fam-
ily Matter." When individu-
als lose their savings in a
scam, it impacts their fam-
ily and often their extended
family. During National Con-
sumer Protection Week, con-
sumers will be encouraged
to educate other family mem-
bers about fraud and com-
municate with each other
regarding any suspicious ac-
tivity.
The Postal Inspectors Of-
fice has prepared a number
of pamphlets about various
types of fraud. These will be
available at many area post
offices throughout the coun-
try. At some sites, educators
will be on hand.
Consumers can order free
fraud-prevention DVDs at
usps.com/postalinspectors.


WAL-MART ASSISTANT MANAGER Chris Fanzone.
(right) presents a check for $2,000 to Ronda Davenport of
the United Way of Okaloosa and Walton Counties. The check
represents a corporate match of donations made by Wal-Mart
associates for the recent United Way campaign.


THE CYBER CLUB will give a one-hour presentation on
"Introduction to Computers" at the Eucheeanna Commu-
nity Center, old school house on McKinnon Bridge Road, at
10 a.m. on Saturday, February 11, 2006. Laptops are wel-
comed and this presentation is free for all participants.

OWC Foundation holds annual meeting


Citing "remarkable a-
chievements" through the
"uncommon generosity" of
contributions in support of
Okaloosa-Walton College,
the OWC Foundation cel-
ebrated its accomplishments
and honored donors Friday
night at the foundation's an-

"It has been a remarkable

here tonight and others

In his annual report to do-

tors and friends to improve
and expanded instructional
programs," said Rice.
Rice noted that "uncom-
mon generosity prevailed for
the common good and made
this college and community
a better place to study, to live
and to work." As of a result
of donations, Rice said the
foundation assets grew to
$24 million with gifts and
earnings that totaled more
than $2.8 million. He said
this translated to $1.2 mil-
lion in direct support of the
college by the foundation.
Dr. James R. Richburg,
president of OWC, com-
mended the foundation's ef-
forts on behalf of the college.
"From individuals and busi-
nesses to friends of the col-
lege, the foundation reached
out, told the story of the col-
lege, and encouraged others
to contribute for our students
and for our programs," said
Richburg in thanking those
present for their financial
assistance.
Richburg took special notice
of Wayne Campbell, CEO of
Fort Walton Beach Medical
Center, who stepped forward
with support to expand the
college's registered nursing
program. He noted the medi-
cal center and other hospitals
have a new partnership with
OWC to begin a Radiography
Technology program in fall
2006. He also cited the com-
munity effort behind the
college's bachelor's degree
programs in nursing and
project/acquisitions manage-
ment.
OWC Bachelor's degree
programs now have more
than 400 students and are an
outstanding success due to
community support," Rich-
burg said. "These types of
partnerships reflect how the
community has and contin-
ues to share in the college's
vision. With the investment
of these partners, these pro-
grams are happening now
and not sometime in the fu-
ture. The same is true for the
trust gift of Marie Snow
Greene which provides es-


sential funding for the new
science technology building
which bears her husband
Robert's nanie and will open
later this summer."
Richburg also lauded the
partnership efforts of the
Okaloosa County Commis-
sion and the support of Rep.
Ray Sansom in securing
funding for a community ser-
vices complex "which will add
another dimension to this
college's ability to educate
and serve our area." With
planning dollars all but as-
sured, Richburg said the fa-
cility which will house the
county's Emergency Opera-
tions Center, OWC's military
science ROTC instruction
and community meeting
area.
While Rice noted the foun-
dation and college "have
stood tall winning every case
in the halls ofjustice" involv-
ing the Mattie Kelly Estate,
Richburg said the college and
foundation "stand ready to
complete the Cultural and
Environmental Institute
Mrs. Kelly asked us to cre-
ate."
Richburg saluted the
"strong wisdom and guid-
ance" that retiring founda-
tion director and community
leader Eddie Phillips has pro-
vided over the. years for
OWC. "Eddie has been a 'Go
to Guy' for many groups but
none as important as our
foundation and his chair-.
manship of the Institute for
Senior Professionals at O-W.
We give our gratitude to
Eddie and Ruth Phillips,"
said Richburg.
Marjorie Cox Gray of
Bluewater Bay was honored
after being selected as the
20051 'Florida Benefactor
Award by the Council for Re-
source Development'(CRD).
"We could use a couple dozen
more Marjorie Grays repli-
cating the good works she
has done for our nursing and
health programs," said Rice
of Gray, who is a founding
member of the OWC Legacy
Society member through her
trust gift.

Dear Editor

What is our "reason for being" in Iraq? Searching for
Osama? No (Saddam was a mortal enemy of
Osama). Elimination of WMD? No (the UN and many oth-
ers officially reported that none existed prior to our inva-
sion). Eliminate the threat to our country? No (since the
Gulf War, our military constantly patrolled and, when
needed, bombed Iraq to make sure they had no military
capability). Spreading democracy? No (more than half the
Iraqi citizens want the U.S. out of Iraq).
While all sides debate the validity of these "reasons," the
following facts are clear tens of thousands are being killed
and maimed and U.S. companies are making billions in
windfall profits with free access to Iraqi oil and no-bid mili-
tary and construction contracts.
In any Democracy, the will of the people must rule, espe-
cially when dealing with other countries. I believe the over-
whelming majority of Americans agree with this basic pre-
cept of Democracy for all sovereign nations. Therefore we
must respect and honor the will of the Iraqi people.
The latest poll of Iraqi citizens conducted by The Center
on PolicyAttitudes (COPA) School of Public Affairs, Univer-
sity of Maryland can be found at www.worldpubliccop
opinion.org.
Results of this poll suggest 70 percent favor setting a time-
table for U.S. troops leaving with 50 percent of those fa-
voring complete withdrawal in six months and the other'50
percent favoring withdrawal within two years.
Eighty percent think the U.S. plans to maintain perma-
nent bases in Iraq even if the new government asks them to
leave.
Forty-seven percent-approve of attacks on American
troops.
Our continued presence in Iraq, with no plan to leave, is a
disaster for Iraqi democracy and American foreign relations.

Proposals
from front

development, education, and
a hurricane preparedness
initiative.
According to Powers,
Florida's unemployment t rate
under Governor Bush is be-
low the national rate. Some
1.1 million new jobs, have
been created under Bush.
The state has a reserve of
$6 billion, and Florida's bond
ratings have been upgraded,
said Powers.
The governor is planning a
$.1.5 billion tax cut, and
homeowners will receive a
one-time $100 tax rebate.
With hurricane season only
a few months away, Bush is
seeking to make the month of
May a permanent "hurricane
sales tax holiday."
The sales tax holiday ap-
plies to purchases of hurri-
cane-related materials and
supplies.
Powers said that Bush
wants the budget to provide
for hurricane preparedness,
and for "strengthen [ed] re-:
sponse capability."
On.the-subject of state edu-'
cation, Powers extolled the
governor's "A-Plus Plan,"
stressing accountability, and
"funding for excellence."
Other education proposals
include $188 million to pur-
chase a laptop computer for
every teacher in Florida, and
an "access and diversity ini-
tiative."
The latter would assist stu-
dents that are the first in
their family to go to college.

Barnhill, speaking for the
developers, said that zoning
permitted a density of up to
14.9 units per acre but that
there would only be seven

Construction will start as
soon as the project is ap-

Owls Head will provide sew-
age and potable water infra-
structure for the project.
There was an extensive dis-
cussion about the Owls Head
zoning proposals which
would include properties
zoned R-l, R-C, and R-3 east
of the U.S. 331 by-pass, now
under construction, and par-
cels zoned C-1, general agri-
cultural, R-C and I-1 west of
the U.S. 331 by-pass. In the
end the Board decided to rec-
ommend the plan as pre-
sented.
Consultant Jack Rhodes,
speaking for Freeport
860LLC, introduced a pro-
posed large scale amendment
to the comprehensive plan for
an 1,181 acre tract south of
the presently developing
Hammock Bay property that
would have an average of two
housing units per acre.
Rhodes noted that even
though Freeport has been
given enhanced ability to ap-
prove projects, the work is not
exempt from review by any
state agency if it is deemed
warranted.
In other remarks Rhodes
said that construction by D.R.
Horton would start soon.
That approval has already
been received for a 5,000
square foot club house. That
there will be no development
of the marsh grass areas of
Bear Creek. That the status
of a golf course for the devel-
opment is still under review.
And that there are il6 plans
for commercial zoning on Bay
Loop road.
The board will recommend
that the council approve the-
project.
'Henninger told the board
that the city will soon have a

clude a 21 acre parcel to de-
fine the center of the city. The

ment services as well com-

Lighthouse was social

beacon to Dorothy Pryor Bullock


By LEAH STRATMANN
Mossy Head resident Dor-
othy "Dot" PryorfBullock has
had an interesting life. Born
in 1926 to one of the found-
ing pioneers of Mary Esther,
FL. Bullock was the first
child of the third wife of her
father, who was 72 years old
at the time of her birth.
"My father was over six feet
tall and had an Indian ances-
try. He had 12 children with
his first wife and after she
died he married a doctor who
primarily worked with herbs.
His second wife died from a
bug bite. My mother was 22
when they married, but my
father died when I was eight
and he was 80. My mother
became ill after the birth of
my younger brother and I
lived with one of my half-sis-
ters in the home my dad built
in 1880 in Mary Esther," she
said.
Her parents married at the
end of the dock in front of the
family home built on Point
Comfort in Mary Esther.
Life with her sister wasn't
easy for Bullock. She was
home schooled for years and
'sheltered from most every-


thing around her. "My sister
told me I couldn't date until
after I had a master's de-
gree," Bullock recalled. Al-
though her sister taught her
to read and eventually al-
lowed her to enter school
when she was in the sixth
grade, Bullock keenly felt the
lack of socialization.
When she was almost 15,
Bullock went to live with sis-
ter Bessie Roberts, whose
husband Walter's family held
the lighthouse keeper's con-
tract for the lighthouse at
Beacon Hill, near Port St. Joe
in what is now Mexico Beach,
as well as many others along
the coast. The lighthouse
years are where Bullock feels
her life really began.
When World War II was de-
clared, Roberts and all other
lighthouse keepers became
officers in the Coast Guard.
With five in the Roberts fam-
ily, plus Bullock, six people
occupied the lighthouse
space. Ten additional Coast
Guard troops were soon sta-
tioned at the lighthouse as
well, camping on the first
floor, which had once been a
large arena for the children
to skate and play in.on rainy

days. "We had 16 people
sharing one bathroom," Bul-
lock recalled, "which called
for precision timing in the
mornings."
"We had family quarters
under the lighthouse on the
second floor. From the living
room, you could go into the
lighthouse's light, which was
actually the third floor. No
dust could be on those
prisms; we had to shine them
every day. During the war
years, we had to use black-
out curtains, which masked
the lights from the living
quarters. We thought it hi-
larious that we meticulously.
saw to it that our blackout
curtains were lowered at
dark with that bright light
rotating above it to guide the
ships entering the channel
from the shoals. Sometimes
we kids would sneak into the
area where the light rotated
and read the log maintained
by the guardsmen. At one
time we saw {in the log)
where a Nazi submarine had
been spotted in our waters,"
she recalled.
Ultimately, a self-contained
barracks was constructed on
the first floor, giving the
guardsmen their own bath-
room facilities, living quar-
ters and cook, but the guards
still had to pass through the
living area to serve duty as
lookouts in the lantern room.
"My cousin and I used to
iron the uniforms of the
Coast Guard guys for 10
cents each and the boys
shined their shoes," Bullock
said. "Living in the light-
house was the beginning my
socialization. I took the bus
to Port St. Joe for school and
was able to socialize with
other children. My sister be-.
came one of the women I pat-
terned my life after. She
made all the family clothes
and in order for Bessie to sew,
the kids had to do the work
around the lighthouse. The


inspectors could come any
time at all unannounced, so
we cleaned the lighthouse
before going to 'school each
morning."
Bullock lived in the light-
house for two and half years
before returning to Mary
Esther to live with her
brother, Tom Pryor, who
owned and operated Pryor
Mercantile in Mary Esther.
She met her solider husband
and father of her four chil-
dren while working in the


store. Bullock has lived in
Mossy Head for 21 years.
Bullock's nephew, William
Roberts, who was born in a


lighthouse, has recently pub-
lished a book entitled, Light-:
houses & Living Along the'
Florida Gulf Coast.

The icar of SainAaas: man of many parts


By BRUCE COLLIER

Ashmun Brown is priest
and vicar of Saint Agatha's
Episcopal Church in DeFu-
niak Springs. He has also
been a newspaperman, army
officer, lawyer, and teacher.
Brown was born and grew
up in Yakima, Washington.
The son of an Irish Catholic
mother and an English Epis-
copalian father, Brown was
raised Catholic, educated by
Dominican nuns and Jesuit
priests.
A lover of language and
history, Brown started his
first career newspapers as
a "fly boy," at the Yakima
Morning Herald.
Fly boys stood beside the
presses as the printed papers
rolled out, assisting in the
pulling out of stacks for bun-
dling.
From there, he moved up
to editing "stinkers," endof-
column factoids that served
as filler for newspapers. Next
came sports, and the police
beat.
At that point, Brown en-
listed in the army, where he
served in the signal corps,
went to officer's candidate
school and a second lieuten-
ancy, working in codes and
cryptography. His duties took
him to New York, and then
to Bremerhaven, Germany.
Brown recalls his impres-
sion ofpost-WWII Germany,
including an unauthorized
side trip to Berlin in the days
before the Wall.
"You could wander into
east Berlin. The [west side]
controlled by the U.S.,
France and England was
rapidly rebuilding."
In east Berlin, Brown saw
"miles and miles of rubble,"
and little rebuilding. What
there was, he describes as
having "no sense of taste."
"I realized," he says, "we
had it great here."
Brown also recalls a cem-
etery, filled with "thousands"
of graves, all Soviet soldiers.
While in the service,
Brown met and became en-
gaged to a woman from Bos-
ton. When he got .uit of the
Army, he and his bride
moved to Yakima, where he
worked as a reported of court-
house news.
Brown's new wife, who
"hadn't been west of the
Berkshires," was not happy
in Yakima.
"She hated it with a pas-
sion," he recalls.
Brown decided that news-
paper writing was "a fabu-
lous way to make a living,
only you don't."
His next step was to look
into law school. His G.I. Bill
benefits would help, but he
did not have the undergradu-
ate degree requisite to apply-
ing to law school.
Boston University (B.U.)
offered a possible solution.
The law school offered spots
for a special class of students,
ones that could convince the
law school that their knowl-
edge and life experience
amounted to the equivalent
of a college degree.
Brown applied, and after a
preparatory course recom-
mended by the Massachu-
setts bar, was allowed to at-
tend B.U. law school.
"We had a child, and my
wife wanted to move back."
Three years later, Brown
graduated in the top 10 per-
cent of his class. From B.U.,
he studied under a fellowship
at the University of Michi-
gan, emerging with a master
of laws degree, specializing
in intellectual property and
copyright law.
Brown returned to Boston,
and worked for a "high pow-
ered" firm on Beacon Hill. A
few years there persuaded
him that he didn't care for
this sort of law. By chance,
he received a telegram that
led to the next phase in his
career.
The Social SecurityAdmin-
istration sent out telegrams


to a list of top-ranked gradu-
ates, inviting them to work
for the federal government.
Brown decided that he would
like to work either for the
Federal Communications


Commission (FCC) or Fed-
eral Aviation Administration
(FAA).
An application led to inter-
views and job offers from
both. Brown chose the.FAA,
and moved to Washington
D.C.
"It tripled what I had been
earning."
The FAA, he recalls, "was
a great experience."
"Aside from the political
appointees, some of the
brightest people in the coun-
try were working for the gov-
ernment."
Brown's work, overseeing
major contracts at the FAA,
led to an opportunity to do
the same thing at NASA.
This was in the early
1960s, the dawn of the
manned space program.
"[NASA] was an abso-
lutely great job." Brown
moved to Florida, and was
eventually divorced.
In the late 1960s, Brown
left NASA to work for Gen-
eral Dynamics.
"I didn't care for it. I'm not
intended for the private sec-
tor."
Another job, working for
the Harris Corporation, led
to a chance enounter with an
old NASA colleague, who was
leaving ajob with the Florida
university system. Brown
worked for years as general
counsel for several Florida
universities.
At this point, a higher call-
ing made itself known to
Brown.
"I had converted to the
Episcopal Church," he says.
The conversion began with a
trip to an Episcopal church
in San Francisco, then to a
study of the Book of Common
Prayer ("the most beautiful
book"), and finally, to conver-
sion to the church.
Brown then began to feel
what he calls "an insistent
voice," that he seek ordina-
tion..
He found a school in Or-
lando that was training dea-
cons. A deacon is the first
level in the Episcopal rank of
holy orders, followed by
priest, then bishop.
In 1984, Brown was or-
dained as a deacon. Follow-
ing a conversation with his
bishop, he applied and was
eventually accepted and or-
dained as a priest in 1991.
The following year, Brown
addressed a long-term prob-
lem, beginning his recovery
from alcoholism.
All the while, Brown had
also been serving as general
counsel at University of Cen-
tral Florida, retiring in 1993.
In 1994, he received his
first priestly assignment, at
Saint Francis Episcopal
Church in Bushnell, Florida.
While at Saint Francis,
Brown and his wife, Rita, to
whom he was married in
1981, were reading about the
Chautauqua program in De-
Funiak Springs.
Another DeFuniak connec-
tion came in the person of a
friend, a Presbyterian minis-
ter. Brown saw an advertise-
ment that Saint Agatha's
Episcopal Church was look-
ing for a vicar.
Brown "auditioned" for his
prospective employers by
preaching a guest sermon by
invitation at First Presbyte-
rian Church in DeFuniak
Springs.
In 1999, Brown and Rita
came to SaintAgatha's. res-
toration and renovation work
done on it.
Brown's title of "vicar" re-
fers to the status of Saint
Agatha's. The church is tech-
nically a "mission." Vicars
are in charge of missions.
In addition to his church
duties, Brown finds time to
participate in Chautauqua
Assembly each year. He is
also an "avid reader," and en-
joys photography.
Brown expects that this
will be the last jo' \e holds,
but adds, "Every uilng I've
done, I've needed in this life


as a priest."
Rita, who has come in with
Buddy, the family poodle,
says "It's a hard job, being a
priest in a small community."
"Is it?" Brown smiles.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 9, 2006


TAKING A BOW are the Silver Strings Trio, left to right, Robin Mason Brown on flute,
Judith Houlgate on cello, and Carol Hayes on violin.


STANDING OVATION FROM THE


CROWD for Silver Strings Trio at Saint Agatha's.


Silver Strings Trio performs at Saint Agatha's Church


By BRUCE COLLIER
The Silver Strings Trio
performed a widely varied
musical program at Saint
Agatha's Episcopal Church
in DeFuniak Springs on Feb-
ruary 5.
Trio members are Robin
Mason Home of flute, Judith
Houlgate on cello, and Carol
Hayes on violin. All three live
in the area, and all have ex-
tensive experience in per-
forming and teaching.
Horne served as spokes-
woman for the trio, introduc-
ing each member, and provid-
ing a brief background on the


selections played.
Opening the afternoon con-
cert was George Frederick
Handel's Trio Sonata in E
Minor.
WolfgangAmadeus Mozart
was next with the Trio in C
Major. Home observed that
February of 2006 marks the
250th anniversary of the
birth of the Austrian com-
poser.
French composer Erik
Satie's somewhat eccentric
piece, Gymnopedie No. 1 fol-
lowed. Satie was a pianist,
and this piece was originally
written for keyboard. Daniel


Kelley's arrangement trans-
lated very comfortably into a
piece for flute and strings.
Finishing the first half of
the concert was Claude
Debussy's Gollywog's
Cakewalk, from the
Children's Corner Suite,
which the French composer
wrote for his young daughter.
Home commented that a
"gollywog" was a kind of old-
fashioned doll, depicting an
outdated racial stereotype.
Following intermission,
the trio resumed with Joseph
Haydn's London Trio No. 1 in
C Major.
Next came Turkey Creek
Collection, four American
songs written by Montana
composer Carol D. Critelli.
Three of the tunes had a


folksy, almost Old West feel,
while the last, called simply
Greek Dance, was more ex-
otic.
The music of Texas-born
ragtime master Scott Joplin
came next, with Pineapple
Rag.

The concert ended with a
trio of "favorites," including
In the Good Old Summer-
time, Let Me Call You Sweet-
heart, and By the Light of the
Silvery Moon. All three are
associated with the "Gay
90s" style of music, and drw'
some smiles and nods from
the audience.
As usual with the Saint
Agatha's concert series, the
house was full, and the audi-
ence enjoyed both the perfor-

TR


mance, and the good-hu-
mored sidelights from Home.
At one pointHorne said
that female flute players
were not seen in orchestras
and symphonies before the
20th century.


"It was considered taste-
less and vulgar," she said,
"for a woman to be seen play-
ing the flute."
A reception for the musi-
cians and audience followed
the concert.

"Dancing Through Literacy"

A success at Walton Middle School


By BRUCE COLLIER
Walton Middle School
(WMS) recently-held a dance
in the school gym. Unlike
most school dances, this one
was for parents, and had a
purpose beyond just socializ-
ing.
As part of a program to en-
courage literacy, the Walton
County school system formed
"reading leadership" teams
in every school this year.
The team at WMS devoted
its efforts to encouraging par-
ents to come to school, where
they could learn how to help
their children in reading at
home.
On January 27, students
and parents were invited to
attend a dance. In addition
to a D.J. and dancing, there
were plenty of other events.


i*


Local storyteller Pat Neese
recounted the tale of a young
country girl who got a chance
to be the first in her family
to go to college.
WMS media center special-
ist Kip Baker hosted a book
fair. Author Billy Moore, a
teacher at South Walton
High School, read excerpts
from his books, and spoke of
his reading and writing
experien ces.
At the dance, prizes were
given out and WMS principal
Russell Hughes performed a
soft shoe.
WMS teacher Cynthia
Simmons also spoke to par-
ents on what she learned at
a recent "Making Schools
Work" conference. WMS re-
quires its students to read at
least 30 minutes every night,

Community Events


THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS DANCE ASSOCIATION is
starting new dance classes every Monday evening at the
DeFuniak Springs Community Center in DeFuniak Springs,
Florida (361N. Tenth Street). Classes are 6:30 p.m.- 8 p.m.
with dancing only 8 p.m. 9 p.m. Some of the line dances
that the students have learned are: electric slide, DeFuniak
alley cat, tush push, three step boogie, hog wild, boot scoot
boogie, and many others. Also a few couples' dances are taught
from time to time.The club has two instructors at the present
time, Pat Pollard and Rodney Ryals.
One of the class instructors has completed the Rock Moun-
tain Square Dance Caller's School for square dance calling
and is looking at starting a group that wants to learn old
timesquare dancing, modern square dancing, and couples
western dancing, all at the same time. Old time square danc-
ing takes about two nights to learn while the other types
take longer to learn. Participants will have to have a part-
ner for these classes. The club will keep a list of single people
wanting to do the above dances.
For more information contact the club Caller Rodney Ryals
at 850-892-2562(H), 850-892-8284(W) or e-mail: opvnkv-
rakko @gdsys.net


and encourages parents to
join in.
WMS reading teacher Dr.
Dale Yount presented par-
ents with a pamphlet on im-
proving reading skills, and
explained the "five-finger"
rule.
The rule helps parents to
determine whether a book is
too difficult for their child's
level of reading skill. If a
child cannot read five or more
words on a page, the book is
too difficult.
Yount also suggested using
comic books to teach sequenc-
ing, vocabulary, main ideas,
and meaning.
Parental attendance at the
dance was estimated at be-
tween 70 and' 80. WMS staff
and faculty plan to hold an-
other such event in the fu-

Striking A Balance
By Dr. Charles Satterwhite
Pastor, Freeport UMC

It is so important to be living in pri me time, rather than
watching TV in prime time.
On your way to success make certain you grow friend-
ships, not just bank and mutual fund accounts. Life is a
collection of memories, not of material things.
The Egyptian pharaohs were buried with all their trea-
sures, and were mummified in hopes that they could en-
joy their bounty in the next life. But we are only caretak-
ers of possessions. There is a big difference between stan-.
dard of living and quality of life. Standard of living is based
on income earned. Quality of life is the enjoyment of the
millions of minutes in between accomplishment's.
Having money is only one aspect of wealth. To the sick
person, wealth is health. To the lonely person, wealth is
someone to talk to and share with. To the estranged per-
son, wealth is hearing words of love and forgiveness.

South Walton, Ponce de Leon,


and Paxton claim district titles


By PATRICK CASEY
Three area girls basketball
squads claimed district cham-
pionships on Saturday night
as Paxton, South Walton, and
Ponce de Leon all won cham-
pionship games to advance to
the state playoffs as host
schools on Thursday, Febru-
ary 9.
Paxton(21-4) captured the
District 1, Class A crown with
a 48-20 victory over the Cen-
tral Jaguars. Central, the
host of the tournament, lost
to the Bobcats for the third
time this season as Jessica


Fink and Keosha Lynn scored
13 points apiece to secure the
win. Paxton will host
Graceville(19-4) on Thursday
night at 7 p.m.
PDL never trailed in their
contest with Cottondale, but
had to hold off the Hornets in
the second half of play for a
47-41 victory in Ponce de
Leon. Mary Howes scored 13
points on the interior and
Lacey Griffin and Maggie
Wright contributed 11 points
apiece to lead the Pirates to
their second win of the sea-
son at home over the Hornets.


PDL (23-5) will host Jay on
Thursday night at 7 p.m.
South Walton pulled off
the biggest upset on Saturday
night as the Seahawks de-
feated Pensacola Catholic 56-
50 in the District 1, Class 3A
championship game held on
Catholic's home floor. Ashlee
Stephens scored 27 points
while Taylor Griffith added
16 and Tara Watson 11 to
pace the Seahawks. South
Walton built a 16-8 lead af-
ter the first quarter and held
off a Crusaders rally in the
third period to capture the


win. Taylor Griffith was in-
strumental in the victory as
she canned 4-of-5 three-point
shots to knock off the #1-seed.
South Walton will host
Holmes County(13-10) on
Thursday at 7 p.m.
Should any of the three
area teams win on Thursday,
they will compete in the sec- e
ond round of the state play-
offs on Tuesday, February 14.

Winter games try to overcome rating slump

The Winter Games open on
Feb. 10 and will host a vari-
ety of winter sports including
skiing, ice skating, snow
boarding and any other sport
imaginable that can be en-
joyed or played in the snow
and cold. The games will be
taking place for 16 days.
Over the past few years,
the Winter Olympic Games
have seen a decrease in view-
ership. Some blame it on the
fact that there is nothing
more than cold weather
sports being broadcasted,
while others say it is the
opening ceremonies that
kick off the event, that has
much to be desired and pales
in comparison to the opening
ceremonies of the summer
games.
No matter what ithe ex-
cuse, the official broadcaster
of the.games, NBC, is trying
to shrug off the image of the
past and give the winter
games a much needed face
lift and press push.



Bulldogs

storm back

to get

intracounty

win

By CHUCK HINSON
It was like South Walton
knew they had to show up to
stay up. That is exactly what
they did in the first quarter of
the game.
But it didn't take long be-
fore Freeport regrouped, rea-
ligned and rethought about
what they were doing and
what they had to lose. The
second half proved differ-
ently for the game and Free-
port went on to win the intra-
county game, 63-28.
The Bulldogs quickly
racked up 26 points in the
secondquarter and kept the
Seahawks to just 7 points.
They continued on the
same path in the third quar-
ter when they totalled 17
points and allowed South
Walton only 4 points.
Jamie Goddin led the scor-
ing drive for Freeport with 18
points. Sam Petty led the
scoring drive for Walton with
15 points.
Other Freeport scorers
included Devon Grant with 9
points; Zach Chamblee and
Travis Wilburn with 8 points
each; Nick Smith and
Brigham Chamblee with 6
points each; H'oward
Dawson, 5; and Chaz Cuch-
ens with 3 points.
Other scorers for South
Walton included: Joseph
Williamson with 6 points;
Caleb Barrett, Zach Davies
and Preston Beard with 2
points; and David Turner
with 1 point.

From start to finish, NBC
is relying on viewers to.be
able to watch the Olympics
24 hours a day, for 16 days.
They plan on airing 416
hours of the competitions on
NBC, USA, MSNBC AND
CNBC. If you want to see it,
they will show it. They are
even including behind the
scenes filming that will be
fed live via satellite and will
show everything that hap-
pens on the competition field
and off.
Talk about reality televi-
sion!
It is a way that NBC wants


to make sure not only the
fans get enough of the winter
games, but advertisers will
get their money worth.
The games will take place
in Turin, Italy. Since the
country is six hours ahead of
the United States, such
popular sports such as ice
skating, skiing and snow-
boarding will be filmed and
shown during American
prime times, rather than
being aired live on the major
affiliate stations. Even
though these sporting events
scores will be posted on the
games web site every minute

FREEPORT'S BRIGHAM CHAMBLEE snags the ball
and then sinks it for two points. Freeport went on to beat
intracounty rival South Walton, 63-28.


SOUTH WALTON'S JUor1-t- WILLIAMSON takes the
bull down the court and looks for an open Seahawk to score
the much needed points they needed against Freeport.


of the day, people want to see
these games when it is con-
venient to them.
For the first time in the
Olympic Games history, ev-
ery sport that is played dur-
ing the 16-day event, will
have some airtime.
All 54 games of the men
and women's hockey games
will be shown live in their
entirety. All games that in-
volve or include a U.S. team
will be shown commercial
free.
It is an attempt to get spec-
tators back to the sport and
keep the corporate advertis-
ingg dollars coming into a
sport that:has seen both de-
clines in sponsorship and
viewership.

Oyster Lake dispute in high gear again

Oyster Lake dispute in high gbar ag ain,


By LEAH STRATMANN

It's been more than 10 years
since William Hemby first tried to
reach a settlement with Walton
County for redirecting the flow of
water from the western edge of his
Oyster Lake property to the center
after Hurricane Opal flooded the
area in 1995 and the county moved
the outfall. Hemby not only worked
with the county, but also on his own
to try and get permits to move the
ditch back to the edge of his prop-
erty.
Before the water was redirected,
Hemby held Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection permits to
develop the land, which have since
expired. When the county moved
the outfall, Hemby contends it
made it impossible for him to build
since he wanted the outfall ar-
mored. In addition, since that time,
the county has adopted the compre-


hensive plan which states nothing
can be built within 50 feet of a natu-
ral outfall and that an outfall can-
not be armored. Hemby contends
the current outfall is not natural,
and the county contends it is.
Next the county announced
plans for a restoration project to rip
out the culvert under CR-30A
which had been installed by the De-
partment of Transportation and re-
place it with a bridge. Hemby and
his attorney Stan Chapman be-
lieved this would cause even
greater damage to Hemby's prop-
erty and filed suit in 2005.
"The whole dispute revolves
around the issue of whether or not
the county had the authority to
move the ditch in the first place,"
Chapman said. When the Oyster
Lake project was first discussed, it
appeared the "bridge would have
great impact on the property, allow-
ing an unimpeded flow of water


across my client's property. The
culvert provides some measure of
restriction," he said.
Then sitting Judge Stone
thought it would make sense to de-
lay the lawsuit until it was deter-
mined whether or not the county
was able to secure the necessary
permits to proceed with the resto-
ration. This "stay" was ordered be-
cause the county had already got-
ten preliminary indications from
DEP that no permits would be is-
sued until the lawsuit was resolved
and the county could not prove they
would not damage the individual's
property.
A hearing held on Jan. 24 and
presided over by Judge Howard
LaPorte granted the county's mo-
tion for relief from the stay, but also
granted Hemby's motion to amend
his original complaint against the
county, throwing the whole issue
into a murky arena.


"Since the issue was put on hold
in 2002, the county has come onto
the property at least twice to reopen
the ditch without permission and
without an easement and without
compensation," Chapman said. "It
is bad enough when government
condemns your land under eminent
domain, but at least then they have
to pay for it. In this case they have
taken it without paying for it."
Chapman said he is currently
working on a new complaint
against the county, as his client is
very concerned about the flooding
in and around Oyster Lake. Sand
pushed in and blocked the lake af-
ter Hurricane Ivan and it has to be
opened or people around the lake
flood. If the property had been left
alone in the first place, Hemby and
his attorney contend this flooding
would not be occurring.
As the legal wrangling has been
so lengthy and county commission-


ers, judges and other county offi-
cials have all changed, Chapman
has twice written to Walton County
Legal Services Director David
Hallman to see if a resolution could
be reached. "I have gotten no
acknowledgement of any kind from
Mr. Hallman on this matter,"
Chapman said.
When Hallman was contacted by
e-mail last week concerning this
story, he responded saying he was
too busy to comment on it, but
would be in touch about a conve-
nient time to talk. To date, no date
or time has been forthcoming.
Since the hearing, when essen-
tially two opposing motions were
granted, nothing changed for either
side. The county still wants resto-
ration and Hemby and his attorney
still want to develop the land. "Not
only is the issue not settled,"
Chapman said, "but it is on full bore
right now.'"


Helen McCall Park improvements on the way


Recreational enhancements



for south Walton residents


To increase recreational
opportunities for residents
south of the Bay, Walton
County Public Works crews
are clearing a portion of the
ten acres purchased from the
state in 2005 to expand
Helen McCall Park.

A ball field will be con-
structed, complete with fenc-
ing, lighting, irrigation,
scoreboard and a building.
The total cost is $185,150
and will be taken from Dis-
trict One and District Five's
recreational plat fees. Com-
missioners Brannon and
Meadows will contribute


$92,575 each from their
district's fund in support of
the expansion.
The recreational plat fees
are funded by developers
rather than ad valorem prop-
erty tax. Developers are re-
quired by the county's Land
Development Code to dedi-
cate a minimum of five per-
cent of the gross area of each
new subdivision for public
recreation purposes.
Alternatively, the devel-
oper may pay cash in an
amount equal to five percent
of the gross value of the sub-
division without improve-
ments. These payments are


deposited into the Recreation
Plat Fee Fund. They are cus-
tomarily used in the district
in which they were generated
after approval by the Board
of County Commissioners on
specific projects.
Located on Moll Drive, off
U.S. 98 in Santa Rosa Beach,
Helen McCall Park was do-
nated to the county many
years ago. It is heavily used
by organizations, parents
and children for a large vari-
ety of activities -from Little
League, to youth football,
soccer, softball, and other ac-
tivities. The additional ten
acres will enhance further


use of this facility.

Brannon and Meadows are
also partners in another joint
venture for recreation. The
commissioners have agreed
to pay $75,000 each from
their district's recreation
funds to repair portions of
the Timpoochee Trail bike
paths on CR- 30A, connector
roads and Allen Loop. Rec-
reation plat fees and state
grants were used to construct
the trail. Construction be-
gan in the mid 1990s and the
trail.is now used by thou-
sands of residents and tour-
ists.

Swiercz at Helen McCall Park.


Sea conditions delay restoration project


By DOTTY NIST

Due to rough seas, the
start of the joint large-scale
beach restoration project
planned for western Walton
County and Destin has been
delayed until later this week
at best.
Restoration had been an-
ticipated to begin early this
week.
Mobilization of equipment
for the project is continuing,
according to Brad Pickel,


beach management director
for the South Walton Tourist
Development Council.
"Numerous pieces of
equipment and onshore pipe
have been delivered and are
being moved into the'
Sandestin area," Pickel com-
mented on Feb. 6.
He explained that the tug-
boat that was to deliver the
offshore submerged pipe for
the project attempted to
leave Tampa twice during
the week of Jan. 30 but had


to return to port both times
due to rough seas. Pickel said
the tugboat was finally able
to begin its trip to Walton
County on Feb. 5 and is ex-
pected to arrive in the -area
by Feb. 8.
Plans are for installation
of the submerged pipe to be-
gin once the tugboat arrives;
however if the rough water
conditions continue, installa-
tion could be further delayed,
Pickel said.
The Liberty Island dredge,


which will transport sand for
the restoration from Destin's
East Pass ebb shoal to the
seven-mile-long project area,
is also en route to the area,
Pickel reported.
After completing work in
Broward County last week,
the dredge was also pre-
vented from leaving port by
the same sea conditions that
affected the pipeline delivery,
Pickel explained. -
"The expectation is that
construction will be under-


way late this week if the
weather is suitable for pipe-
line installation," Pickel re-
marked.
Plans are for the first sand
to be pumped onto the beach,
just west of Finz restaurant
at Sandestin Golf and Beach
Resort.
The project is to involve
the placement of approxi-
mately three million cubic
yards of sand along about
five miles ofbeachfront at the
west end of Walton County


and about two miles of ad-
joining Destin coastline, all
designated as critically
eroded by the state. Contrac-
tor Great Lakes Dredge and
Dock Company has 150 days
to complete the project, ac-
cording to contract specifica-
tions.

The public has access to
continually updated informa-
tion on the restoration at the
web site www.protectwalton
countybeaches.com.

keting Association International

tives from around the world.


These awards, were. handed out
as part of the 2005 HSMAI Adrian

and most prestigious travel event
of its kind in the world, now in its
49th year. "We are extremely hon-
ored to be presented with five
Adrian Awards," said Kriss Titus,
executive director of the SWTDC.


This year's competition attracted
more than 1,200 entries from 35
countries and destinations around
the world, with entries judged by
teams of experts from all sectors of
the industry. "To be awarded these
prestigious honors, places Beaches

5. Disconnect outside hoses and lawn sprinklers.




Do you already have a frozen pipe? Don't tha\w it out w ith a
torch or open flame. Rather use heat from a hairdrN er, but be
aware of \wet floors and the potential danger of electric shock.
Be sure to keep the following items on hand in case you ha\e
a broken line and need to make a temporary repair: a couple
of hose clamps, a short piece of hosing and a pipe cutter or a
hacksaw. Use the hacksaw or the pipe cutter to cut out the
damaged section of pipe. Use the short section of hose to
bridge the gap bet een the two good sections of pipe and use
a clamp at each end to 'old e\ er thing in place until the
plumber arrives.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 9, 2006


The



Beach



Scene

Kris Chavez

Word quickly spread through South Walton that on Super
Bowl Sunday Oli was honoring locals at his Grayton Beach
establishment for their support during the past eleven years.
If you have to ask, "Who's Oli?" or "What establishment?"
you probably weren't on the guest list.
Housed in the once infamous Grayton Store, The Red Bar
first opened its doors in January 1995. Today Oli admits, "I
was scared to death. It was my first restaurant." Oli's fears
have subsided during the past eleven years as he concen-
trates on the day-to-day operations of the family-run busi-
ness. Working alongside him are wife, Kyle; brother,
Philippe; and father, Louie.
Mike Thompson was a painter in 1995 and recalls work-
ing with Oli to open the restaurant. "The walls were black
and Oli wanted them red. It took nine coats of red paint to
keep the black from showing through. We worked very hard,"
Mike says pointing upwards, "those slanted ceilings were
tough. Now, I look at it all and smile, success couldn't have
happened to a nicer guy."
Oli blushes as he grins and says, "I don't do it alone, it
takes a lot of people to make this happen. Hanging red lights
doesn't make a restaurant work ...anyone can hang red
lights. I'm blessed with a great family, a hard-working staff
and the best customers in the world. I give credit to the
locals for their support. I wouldn't be here without them.
That's why I honor them today."

Community Events

SOUTH WALTON COMMUNITY YARD SALE will be
held Wednesday, Feb. 11, from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. The yard
sale is free to shoppers and open to the public.
More than 200 "vendors" will be selling a host of different
items including general household goods, apparel, sporting
goods, crafts and other "treasures." Many Seaside merchants
also participate with a sidewalk sale, clearing out their in-
ventory to make room for new items.
For more information, call the Downtown Seaside Asso-
ciation at (850) 231-5424.
A STUDENT OF WEATHER is the first novel by Cana-
dian, Elizabeth Hay. The story spans over thirty years of
Canadian and American history. However, it is much more
than a history lesson. This novel is spiced with the story of
two siblings competing for the affections of a scientist, an
expert on weather catastrophes. Join the Booklovers review
and discussion at the Coastal Branch Library from 10 to
11a.m. on Feb. 14. Everyone is welcome, and is encouraged
to read the book before the meeting.
