Large scale amendment for city


core, Hammock Bay, Owl's Head


By BEN GRAFTON
The Freeport City Council
meeting at City Hall on Feb.
23 opened with the approval
of the first readings of a
small scale amendment to
the comprehensive plan and
a proposed zoning ordinance
which would extend commer-
cial zoning to the Nick/Will-
iams one acre parcel behind
Blueberry Plaza. Advertising
was approved for the second
reading which is scheduled
for the council meeting on
March 14.
City Planner Latilda
Henninger asked the council
to consider changing the
Owl's Head planned develop-
ment project to 1,057 acres
and 3,500 housing units. She
told the council she would
request approval of a recom-
mendation to incorporate
this into the planned large
scale amendment to the com-
prehensive plan that is being
prepared by the city.
Henninger introduced
Sue Murphy, an Owl's
Head consultant based in
Tampa, and Jeff Tucker,
president and owner of the
property, to the council.
Tucker addressed the coun-
cil stating that Owl's Head
wants to make Freeport a
true destination for housing


choices and that a non-profit
community trust, funded by
a contribution from each
property sale, would be used
to assure up-keep and im-
provement of
parks and playing fields.
Tucker also said that Buell
Cobb was, "The Glue," that
held the planners and engi-
neers of the project together.
Plans are in place to pro-
vide a new sewage plant,
with gray water disposal on
the golf course. The facility
will be given to the city upon
completion. Owl's Head,
which has already bought
over one million dollars in
utility taps, will bare its fair
share of correcting any im-
pacts created by the develop-
ment.
The council approved the
proposed Owl's Head zoning
changes.
Henninger referred to the
Hammock Bay project en-
closed within Bay Loop Road
south of SR- 20 and said that
the developer was asking for
rural village zoning, which
would provide for two -hous-
ing units per acre, for prop-
erty south of the present de-
velopment site. Consultant
Jack Rhodes told the council
that this would 'pretty much
finish the entitlement por-


tion of the project."
Henninger asked the coun-
cil to incorporate these
changes into the city's large
scale amendment which
should be ready in the near
future. Council approved
both the zoning change and
the request to add this to the
large scale amendment.
Henninger discussed plans
to designate an "urban core"
in the center of Freeport,
changing property presently
zoned R-2 to R-3 (residential/
commercial).
This change would be in-
corporated into the city's
large scale amendment cur-
rently being prepared. The
core would provide for higher
density residential develop-
ment and commercial use. It
would be the center of most
intense growth.
A public hearing to discuss
this proposal was requested
and approved as was a mo-
tion to include this concept in
the large scale amendment.
In order to receive a grant
from the Department of
Community Affairs, the city
must produce an "urban ser-
vice" map and adopt a capi-
tal improvement plan by
April 15. A workshop on this
subject was scheduled for
March 7 with public heanngs


scheduled for March 14 and
March 30.
Henninger announced she
was working on the draft of
an ordinance to allow ap-
pointing residents and
owner/operators of city busi-
nesses to serve on city
boards.
In May 2005, prior to the
moratorium on annexation,
Jewel Cuchens submitted a
request for annexation of a
20 acre parcel. All fees were
paid but the request "fell
through the cracks" during
changes to city staff. City At-
torney Clayton Adkinson rec-
ommended that the council
approve this request as an
exception to the moratorium.
Council approved and set the
meeting of March 14 for
adoption.
Tony Peters, engineer with
city engineer Charles Peters,
asked the council to schedule
a workshop to consider sew-
age projects and discuss the
master plan. The workshop
was scheduled for March 15.
Hammock Bay has a joint
project with the city to install
a ten inch sewer force main.
The city's share of the project
which could be incorporated
in the Bay Loop sewer project
would be $72,000. The coun-
cil approved the project.

School board accepts $1,000 donation


by PATRICK CASEY
The Walton County School
Board held their regular
meeting on Thursday, Febru-
ary 23, at the Tivoli Admin-
istrative Complex in DeFu-
niak Springs.
Joyce Sanders, a Sprint
representative, opened the
meeting by presenting Su-
perintendent Carlene Ander-
son with a $1,000 check ear-
marked for the Walton
County Educational Founda-
tion as part of many years of
service with the school dis-
trict.
Superintendent Anderson


recognized Jordan Van Hall,
a Walton High School stu-
dent and Sunshine State
Scholar, for having the top
score in math and science on
the ACT and also the most
credits taken in advanced
math and science course-
work among all seniors in
Walton County schools.
The board approved an ex-
tension for Lord & Son Con-
struction to add 42 days to-
ward completion of the Bay
Elementary School addition
project due to Acts of God
causing disruption to the
construction industry, labor


pool, power, and transporta-
tion systems:
Board members also ap-
proved payment of 2006-07
Florida School Board Asso-
ciation dues in the amount of
$10,573.
The board finalized the
action to transfer the Port-
land Community Center.
property to the Walton Board
of County Commissioners as
was agreed to at the previ-
ous school board meeting ear-
lier in the month.
Wayne Miller, Supervisor
of Administration and Op-
erations, asked the board to


approve the job description
for a district planner. Miller
said he is spending a major-
ity of his time reviewing
plans instead of being able to
concentrate on the work of
building and maintaining
school structures. Miller in-
formed the board that the
county has 17 planners and
he has to review the informa-
tion sent in by all of them.
Board members approved his
request 5-0.
The next regularly sched-
uled meeting of the Walton
County School Board is Mon-
day, March 6, at 5 p.m.


Police officer


fires weapon,


gives pursuit


On Saturday, February 25,
2006 at approximately 8:35
p.m. a DeFuniak Springs Po-
lice officer was involved in an
on-duty shooting. The officer
was attempting to conduct a
traffic stop on a white 4-door
passenger vehicle for failing
to stop at a stop sign. The of-
ficer attempted to stop the
vehicle by activating his blue
lights. The vehicle continued
fleeing and eluding the of-
ficer. After a brief pursuit the
vehicle stopped at Dorsey
Avenue and Graham Street
and attempted to back ag-
gressively toward the officer,
who was exiting his vehicle
and shouting a verbal com-
mand to stop backing up.
According to the officer, the
driver was attempting to
back into him or his patrol


car. At this point, the officer
feared for his life and fired
one round from his service
weapon into the rear of the
vehicle. The vehicle fled the
scene eastbound on Dorsey
Avenue. The officer followed,
but lost the vehicle some-
where on U.S. 90.
The subject and his pas-
senger were later located in
a residence on Graham
Street. The driver of the ve-
hicle was identified as Archie
L. Holmes, 36, of DeFuniak
Springs, FL. He was arrested
and booked into the Walton'
County Jail on several crimi-
nal charges including aggra-
vated assault on a law en-
forcement officer, driving
while license suspended and
was already being sought on
an outstanding warrant.


DFS City Council


gets clean audit


by KEVIN CHILCUTT
Once again, the DeFuniak
Springs City Council re-
ceived a clean report on their
financial audit. Council
members were told that fi-
nance director Sara Bowers
provided good information
concerning different types of
revenue and expenses. Like
all governments, the city has
to report under the new
GASB-34 requirements. The
auditor showed figures and.
told council members the city
is in the black.
Assistant City Manager
Larry Laird told the council
that staff has been looking at
Legacy Cove, a luxury town
home project planned along-
side U.S. 90; between 20th
and 23rd streets, abutting S
Electronics. Developer Jack
Burke said the land is about
12 acres and the town homes
are being designed for the
duel income working family
who.commutes to the Gulf.
The motion to approve in-
cluded establishing a value
for the land, abandonments
with protection if the devel-
opment does not proceed and
consideration of paving 23rd
Street, if the FDOT allows it.
More public hearings will
have to take place.
The council agreed to
three community requests.
Habitat for Humanity ofWal-
ton County asked for a
waiver of tap and impact fees
for a project off Smith Road.
Council agreed to the re-
quest, based on the need for
the low-income homes.
Council also agreed to a
waiver of fees for the DeFu-
niak Springs Garden Club to
hold a rose event and sale.
The planned speaker talks
about growing old-fashioned
roses and usually sells them.
She agreed to come and
speak for no charge, if she is
allowed to sell the roses.
Based on the work the Gar-
den Club does for the city, the
request to waive the fee for
the community center use
and sell the roses was ap-
proved.
A third request came from
David and Jonathan King.
The First Apostolic Church is
planning a band scrimmage
for local church groups. They
asked to be allowed to also


sell concessions to raise
money for missions. This was
also approved.
DeFuniak Springs Police
Chief Mike Adkinson told the
council he promotes commu-
nity involvement. Adkinson
said Po' Boy's Gun Shop do-
nated $8,000 worth of leather
goods. The chief noted the
goods are usually bought
over a period of years be-
cause of the cost and they
have a very long life.
Adkinson presented a certifi-
cate of appreciation to the
store.
Regarding the city airport,
a second round of bids to
build a hanger for Monarch
Aviation returned and were
still high. The project is be-
ing developed as part of ru-
ral development. Engineer
Charles Peters,and City
Manager Kim Presnell both
gave recommendations of
what monies are needed and
from where they could come.
Council member Roy
McLeod said he approves of
the project, but has concerns
with the numbers not being
provided to the council before
the meeting so they could
review finances before mak-
ing a money decision. City
officials say the project will
ultimately be a revenue pro-
ducer. Both contracts were
awarded. Gum Creek Farms
and Hall Construction were
the two bid winners. The
money will come from sales
tax and reserves.
DeFuniak Springs will
now provide holiday leave
time for the police and
firefighters. They will have
180 days to use the time. This
brings the city into line with
other municipalities.
The council also approved
a bond lien for the second
phase of the water system.

DeFuniak Springs re-
cently changed their website
address to www.defuniak
springs.net. City manager
Kim Presnell asked for input
into what is needed on the
website.
Mayor Harold Carpenter.
was absent from the meeting,
again due to medical prob-
lems. Carpenter and was
scheduled to have back sur-
gery Tuesday.


Appellate Court rules in OWC's favor in Kelly appeal


A panel of three judges
from the First District Court
ofAppeal has ruled to affirm
Judge Robert Barron's
Okaloosa County Circuit
Court decision in favor of the
OWC Foundation in the
Mattie Kelly land issue. The
S appeal court's decision to up-
hold Barron's June 3, 2005
ruling was unanimous.

"Naturally, OWC and the
OWC Foundation are very


pleased with the decision of
the Appellate Court. It fully
validates that the college's
plans for expansion of the
OWC Mattie Kelly Cultural
and Environmental stitute
are in keeping v,.:. Mrs.
Kelly's intent when she made
her gift to the college ," said
Dr. Bob Richburg, OWC
president. As we move for-
ward, Mrs. Kelly's concerns
for the environment and the
cultural life of our commu-


nity will be carried on for fu-
ture generations through a
permanent source of funding
for the institute in her
name."

"In her will, Mattie Kelly
requested that OWC do two
things -- establish a cultural
and environmental institute
and provide for the perpetual
care of her mausoleum. OWC
has and will continue to meet
both of these obliga-


tions," said Richburg. "First,
the sale of approximately 12
acres of the nearly 13 acres
of residential property Mrs.
Kelly gifted to the college will
move forward in order to
fund in perpetuity the work
of the OWC Mattie Kelly
Cultural and Environmental
Institute which the college
established in 1997.

"Second, the OWC
Foundation will continue to


own the mausoleum portion
of the property and will con-
tinue to provide for the
mausoleum's perpetual care
just as it has done ever since
Mrs. Kelly's death.

"The mausoleum park is
not a part of the proposed de-
velopment and it will retain
full access to both the water
and the road for free ingress
and egress by either
the family or the public."


As the college has previ-
ously announced, Richburg
said the proceeds of the sale
and any available state
matching funds will create a
permanent endowment fund
for the OWC Mattie Kelly
Cultural and Environmental
Institute and the earnings of
the endowment will be solely
used to underwrite the ex-
panded cultural and environ-
mental activities of the insti-
tute.

Gulf Power was granted a
$2.71 per 1,000 kilowatt-hour
surcharge last March to re-
cover Hurricane Ivan dam-
ages over two years, but the

was at $28 million before
Ivan-has been totally de-

Association will hold their

Thursday, March 2, 2006, at
the Chautauqua Building on

Guest speaker will be City
Marshall Michael Adkinson.
He will talk about security


Under the proposed plan,
Gulf Power would extend the
collection period from two
years to eight years, ending
in August 2014, and reduce
the current surcharge from
$2.71 to $1.93.
"Our goal is to minimize the
tremendous impact of these
hurricanes on our custom-
ers," John Hutchinson, Gulf
Power's general manager of
public affairs, said. "This pro-
posal allows us to issue bonds
that will reduce the overall
price of electricity by extend-
ing the payment period.
Even though that means it
will take us longer to pay off


and protecting local busi-
nesses.
Election of officers and a
discussion of the 2006 Fourth

items on the agenda.

the debt, we think this plan
is more beneficial overall."
Hurricane Ivan knocked
out power to more than 90
percent of Gulf Power's cus-
tomers and caused a total of
more than $137 million in
damages to the electric sys-
tem. Hurricane Dennis left
60 percent of the utility's cus-
tomers in the dark and cost
more than $59 million.
Katrina, which sideswiped
Northwest Florida, left 30
percent of the company's cus-
tomers out of service and did
more than $4 million in dam-
ages.
"It's also important to note
that we are not asking to re-
coup all of our storm costs,"
Hutchinson said. "There is
still about $54 million in
damages from all three
storms that we are not seek-
ing to recover in this filing."
Hutchinson said the $137,
million includes $13 million


in remaining Ivan costs, $54
million for damages from

hurricanes Dennis and
Katrina and $70 million to
replenish the company's
storm reserve.
"This plan helps us recover
slowly and reduces the bur-


den on our customers as
well," Hutchinson said. "Our
prices today are the lowest in
the state among the major
utilities and this proposal will
make our prices even lower."
A decision by the FPSC is
expected in June.

LETTERS TO THE EDITORj


PERSONAL COMMENTS



EDITOR'S COMMENT



The living history of Walton County


By RON KELLEY

History is alive and well and living in Walton County.
Anyone that would dispute this was not in DeFuniak Springs
this past weekend.
The Chautauqua Assembly enjoyed what may well have
been its best year since its revival 11 years ago. Attendance
was overwhelming. The concerts, performances and lectures
were top-notch. It was a memorable Assembly for a variety
of reasons, not the least of which was the announcement by
Diane Pickett that she would stepping down as director and
organizer. Pickett, who led the charge to restore the long-
defunct event, said the current board would name a new
director soon.
My hope now is that the board will choose someone who,
like Diane, is a local resident; someone who loves this place
and is dedicated to maintaining the high standards that
have made the Assembly great and who possesses the orga-
nizational skills needed to organize such an event.
DeFuniak Springs owes Diane and the legion of hard-
working volunteers who assisted her a huge debt of grati-




Editor,
Condoleeza Rice, Secretary of State, was on TV Sunday
informing Congress that she wants to bring Iranian stu-
dents into the United States, so they can use our schools to
get an education.
What about the people who live in the United States that
can't afford to send. their children to college? Why should
we spend our tax money on education for people who live in
Iran?
We should use that money to improve our schools and in-
crease teacher's salary. It is nice to be able to help other
countries with their problems, but charity starts at home.
There are a lot of government programs that need extra
money to help people who are disabled or are low income.
What is our government thinking, when they cut back money
for education and then want to spend it on education for
Iranian students?
Wake up, people, and let Congress know what you think
about this problem. Educate our children with the best teach-
ers and schools we can give them.

Lawrence P. Lewis
DeFuniak Springs


Editor,
It is difficult for me to comprehend the suggestion that
Walton County needs to spend half a million dollars to pro-
vide a horse facility. What. can come next? Will we need a
bowling complex? How about an ice skating rink?'
These are recreational facilities which I am sure that quite
a few people would enjoy having available for use. If there
is sufficient patronage available then I would prefer pri-
vate investors foot the bill for them, not county money.
I am not against horse owners. In fact, the first horse my
daughter owned came from Commissioner Cuchens' home
many years ago. Owning, caring for, and learning about
horses were a great thing for our entire family and we en-
joyed many years of having horses for pets. That said, I do
not see the taxpayers providing this facility for a limited
number of individuals.
I would think that our county could find a much better
use for half a million dollars. Maybe, improving roads, in-
frastructure, traffic lighting, storm water retention, or bring-
ing industry into the county.
I applaud Commissioner Cuchens' efforts in getting the
animal shelter project settled, (which by the way, has taken
way too long to finalize) and understand his enjoyment of
horse ownership. I just feel he might rethink his sugges-
tion.

tude. Their tireless dedication to the spirit of Chautauqua
will help to ensure that the program continues for future
generations to enjoy.
In this issue, the Herald-Breeze is featuring many of the
highlights of this year's event, so I will spare you my per-
sonal observations. Suffice to say that I am grateful to all
the home folks who took my advice and took in the Assem-
bly. Your support made all the difference and I thank you.
Another wonderful event took place this weekend. The
Heritage Association held its annual Walton County His-
tory Fair at the county fairgrounds.
That, too, was a resounding success. The history fair al-
most doubled its attendance from last year. There were many
new and exciting displays that had not been showcased be-
fore. Not only were the exhibits first-rate, there was some
fine entertainment from the West DeFuniak Bee-Bops, the
road show cast from Grit & Grace, dulcimer players and
numerous lectures and performances by area professionals,
including our own Bruce Collier.
The Herald-Breeze was also there and displayed front
pages that have not been seen in decades. Walton County
Clerk of Court Martha Ingle loaned out some of the Herald-
Breeze archived editions from her safe repository in the court-
house. Those editions are always open to public viewing,
but I recommend that when you go, plan to stay all day.
Real history lovers can easily get lost in those pages.
Very special thanks go to Little Big Store owner Dennis
Ray, who brought us an actual edition of one of our early
newspaper tabs on the original Chautauqua Assembly. Al-
though yellow with age and in tatters, it was filled with
facts and photos that had not been seen in generations. Our
publisher, Gary Woodham, seemed as delighted by the find



Editor,
The closing of 13th Streets' south entrance to Walton Plaza
has caused problems. Two of them are traffic hazards on
busy Hwy. 331 and time spent getting in and out of the plaza.
One solution to the problem could be to extend 11th Street
South to Corbett Road, and change Corbett Road to inter-
sect Hwy. 331 and Bob Sikes Road.
New businesses coming to this area would be more acces-
sible to their patrons.

,Editor:
About two years ago, I read in this paper that someone
had proposed to our county commissioners that they take
some of our tax dollars to build a park dedicated to our dogs.
A park where dog owners could take their animals to walk
or exercise. I thought to myself, this is a preposterous idea,
surely our Republican commissioners, who are dedicated to
responsible government spending, sound money manage-
ment and lower taxes, will quickly squash this scheme. I
thought they might say something like "I don't believe it is
the duty of government or the obligation of our fellow tax-
payers to pay for the recreation of dogs or their owners." Or,
since we Republicans are big on personal responsibility, they
would have said, "You know, before a person acquires a pet,
they should first contemplate whether or not they and they
alone, can meet the needs of the animal." I never heard any-
thing close to those remarks and today we are the proud
owners of our very own "Bark Park".
Today I read that our commissioners are considering build-
ing an equestrian center so that we can all have a place to
ride our horse, I have nothing against horses or dogs for
that matter, I've owned both. I have no objection to the judi-
cious use of tax revenue to build parks, although my obser-
vation is that most are seldom used. I do, however, have
something against government that feels obligated to pay
for the entertainment/recreation of every conceivable spe-
cial interest group that puts it hand out.
Although, I have no statistics to back this up, I feel confi-
dent in saying that less than one percent of the county's
population owns horses. According to the 2000 census
(county population of 40,601), that's 406 people; of those,
maybe half might ever use this facility, that's 203. That
sound like quite a few people, until you consider that over
40,000 of us will never set foot in the place.
I ask you this, is it the duty of government to pay for our
entertainment? If it is, then where does it end? Several
people in the county own stock cars and must travel all the
way to Baker to race them; shouldn't we build them a race
track? How about a cat park? We have a dog park, but ev-
eryone knows cats and dogs don't mix, this is discrimina-
tion against our cat owners. Let's build a cat park. Now con-
sider this, many more taxpayers hunt deer than ride horses,
yet they have to use their own money to pay for hunting
leases. If government is responsible for providing amuse-
ment for its citizenry, shouldn't we foot their bill also? If it
is the duty of government to provide me a place to ride a
horse and I can't afford a horse, then why is it not incum-
bent upon them to provide me with a horse? Otherwise, I'll
never be able to enjoy the equestrian center I helped pay
for. There has to be an end to this.
The article also stated that another use of this.equestrian
center would be to board horses. There are several people
in this county who board other people's horses as their pri-
mary or a supplementary means of income. If the eques-
trian center boards horses, this would put the county indi-
rect competition with some of the very people that pay the
taxes to build this thing. Yes, I know they say it will be built
with grant money, but "grant money" is a term politicians
use when they think you're too stupid to realize where grant
money comes from.
Well, I have a novel idea for our commissioners, If you
really want to provide us with entertainment, then please
remove your hand from our pockets, then quite possibly, we'll
be able to afford our own.

P.S. Now that I think about it, that idea about less taxes
and responsible government spending isn't so novel after
all. I'm quite sure I heard it during some politician's cam-
paign speech.

as I was and he offered to re-shoot it, make a new negative
and republish the eight-page tab. He did, and we passed
them out to history fair attendees.
Strangely, the tab did not have a date. However, since it
contained a reelection campaign ad by former Florida Gov-
ernor Sydney J. Catts, my friend Jim Moore and I finally
decided ihat it had to have been published 'in 1924, when
Catts first ran unsuccessfully for reelection.
Thanks, Dennis, for allowing us to share this treasure with
everyone again.
Next week, we plan to run a feature on the history fair,
similar to the one we did this week on the Assembly.
Extra kudos to Brenda Rees who displayed, among other
things, photographs of George Walton Jr., for whom this
county is named, and a pristine reproduction of a copy of
The Daily Critic, a DeFuniak Springs newspaper dated 1888.
There was really only one thing that marred the near-
perfect weekend.
DeFuniak Springs city administration played its heavy
hand again and ordered the Civil War reenactment players
to break down their meticulously authentic camp and leave
the Lakeyard after the first day of their program, on the
grounds that city ordinances do not allow overnight camp-
ing in the Lakeyard.
A measure of compromise could have helped here. After
all, these participants are professionals, not some reckless.
couple of transients looking to save on motel fare. The camp
is an integral part of their program and I wish we could
have avoided kicking sand in their faces.
However, like professionals, they quietly packed up their
large camp and moved out to Pickett's Crossing that night,
returning the next morning to set up camp again, but we
certainly did not put our best foot forward.
Despite that embarrassing gaff, the Chautauqua Assem-
bly and the Walton County History Fair showed that vhen
it comes to history, we're ahead of our time.
CORRECTION:
Although no one mentioned the mistake in last week's
editorial, the editor does know that Thomas Jefferson was
the author of the Declaration of Independence, not the Con-
stitution.

Editor,
Our letters dealt with the election process of 2000 through
2005, followed by the Bush prescription drug law, which
covered the same time frame as the elections process did.
The letters were intended for the purpose of furnishing our
fellow citizens with accurate and meaningful information;
The letter that follows is a similar letter, with a different
subject and in some ways, far more iiiiportant. In the years
of 1800 through 1860, the national debt of the U.S. govern-
ment did not exceed $65 million dollars in a given year.
The years of 1870 through 1920, the national debts were
less than $2.5 billion dollars. In the year of 1920, the na-
tional debt \vas $25 billion dollars,..with.1apre'Pident named
,Hoover (Republican).
In the 1980s era, the national debt exceeded $4 trillion
dollars. The president was named Reagan (Republican).
From 2001 through 2008, the national debt is likely to
double the trillions of dollars of National debt. The presi-
dent is named George W. Bush (Republican).
In the 1929 era, the Great Depression of fifteen years. In
the 1980 era, a recession of several years. In the 2000 era, a
recession open for the worst depression to date!
How can the Republican party claim to be a conservative
party?
The factual data for 2001 through 2008 was taken from
the news media, with the other two items taken from an
economic text book, dated 1948.
The reason this writer is deeply concerned with the above
information is the nation's national debt that we owe. The
national debt that exceeds'$7 trillion dollars. In addition,
all that needs to happen is that any nation, such as China,
Japan or Ero nations, all of a sudden demand that we pay
our national debt, immediately.

Legislators refuse delivery

of voter listening devices


Florida Citizens for Term
Limits has announced a
breakthrough in its campaign
to improve the hearing of leg-
islators. On Monday, the
group offered a powerful
hearing amplifier to each leg-
islator who voted to extend
term limits. Only two law-
makers, Florida House
Speaker Pro-Tempore, Leslie
Waters and Senator Walter
"Skip" Campbell, Jr. have
declined delivery.

Powerful hearing aids will
be delivered to the offices of
the remaining 125 lawmak-
ers at the opening of the leg-
islative session this March.
The devices will be a re-
minder to politicians to listen
to the voice of the voters.
Florida voters cast their bal-
lots overwhelmingly in favor
of eight-year term limits in
1992, but recently, 127 law-
makers voted to give Florida
politicians more time in of-
fice.
"The problem is that
Florida voters keep saying
eight years, but the legisla-
ture is hearing 12 and 24
years," said the group's presi-
dent, Max Linn. "They're just
not listening to voters who
cast their ballots by a solid 77
percent margin in favor of


eight-term limits, so we have
decided to improve their
hearing," Linn said.
( "Polls show that voters still
support the current term lim-
its law," Linn commented,
"but lawmakers aren't listen-
ing. We are personally deliv-
ering hearing devices with
powerful amplifiers so even
politically tone-deaf legisla-
tors can hear the voice of the
voters."
In the spirit of better politi-
cal hearing, politicians with
stubborn blockages will also
be offered earwax removal
kits to help with their inabil-
ity to listen.
Florida Citizens Fort Term
Limits is an organization con-
ducting a statewide cam-
paign to defeat the legislators'
latest effort to extend their
terms by changing the term
limits law.
Florida Citizens For Term
Limits will sponsor two of its
own voter initiatives on the
2008 ballot. An initiative
called 'Eight & Out,' would
prevent politicians from run-
ning for any elected position
for a five-year period after
serving an eight-year term.
The group will also sponsor a
voter initiative calling for the
end of taxpayer-funded pen-
sions for politicians.

"Call List"

for elderly

By BRUCE COLLIER
Walton County Sheriff's
Office (WCSO) in maintain-
inga "call list" of elderly per-
sons in the county.
Persons on the list receive
a daily telephone call from
WCSO, checking on their
welfare. Currently, the list
contains the names of 26 eld-
erly persons.
Their names are on the list
either for temporary or per-
manent medical conditions,
or because they live alone.
The call sheet contains the
person's name, address, tele-
phone number, and emer-
gency contact information.
Medical condition or history
may also be included, but is
not mandatory.
WCSO makes a telephone
call between 6 and 8:30 a.m
every day. If neither tele-
phone or emergency contact
cannot be made, a deputy is
sent to the residence to check
on the welfare of the listed
person.
Persons wishing to be
placed on the call list, or who
know someone who should be
on the list, may call WCSO
communications supervisor
Donna Smith at 892-8186 or
892-8111.


Wilmer Wilkerson served
as a deputy sheriff under four
sheriffs from 1945-1975:
Aubrey McDonald, Curtis
Miller, Andy Anderson and
Sam Campbell.
Wilkerson began as ajailer,
actually living with his fam-
ily in the old County Jail. He
retired as the chief deputy
and enjoyed retirement until
his death in September 1989.
The sheriff's office is look-
ing for other items showing
former sheriff's, deputies or
equipment. Anyone with
vintage photographs or
memorabilia of the Walton
County Sheriff's Office, that
would allow those items to be
copied, are asked to contact
Captain Danny Glidewell or
Terri; Jackson, administra-
tive assistant-to the sheriff,
at 892-8186.


The American culture is
booming with "foodies." As
society became more work-
oriented in the 60s, moms left
their kitchens and found
work outside the home. Fast
food restaurants and ready-
to-eat meals flourished. In
the process, mothers had less
time to impart cooking tips
and other kitchen wisdom to
their children. The result is
a "lost-in-the-kitchen" gen-
eration.
Help is on the way for the
cooking challenged. Radio
station WZEP in DeFuniak

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, MARCH 2, 2006


WALTON COUNTY THIS MONTH



Look around you and you will see the residents of Walton County are diverse and this diversity enriches our lives.
SThe 2000 U. S. Census estimated there would be over 48,000 people living in Walton County in 2004. Of those,
15% are over the age of 65. Forty-eight percent are women, and seven percent are African-Americans. Asians ac-
count for one percent of the population and 2.2% are persons of Hispanic or Latino origin.
The Walton County Commission strives for diversity in the workplace. County government believes diversity in
the workplace yields stability and productivity and brings together the resources and talents of many people for the
shared benefit of all. The board emphasizes honoring and appreciating the diverse needs, skills, talents and contri-
butions of all its employees. The commission also honors and appreciates employee similarities. By recognizing
Sthe similarities we all have in common with coworkers, we can build a bridge of understanding and acceptance.

WCSO arrests man on

suspicion of operating a

methamphetamine lab


A search warrant executed
Thursday afternoon in
Darlington by the Walton
County Sheriff's Office and
the Florida Department of
Law Enforcement resulted in
the arrest of a suspected
methamphetamine manufac-
turer.
Mark Bradley Garrett, 39,
of Darlington, was charged


with possession of metham-
phetamine, possession of
listed essential chemicals,
possession of marijuana (less
than 20 grams), two counts
of drug paraphernalia, and
possession of a firearm pro-
hibited as a person subject to
an injunction.
The-search of Garrett's
home resulted in the seizure
of a quantity of crystal meth-
amphetamine (ICE), several
firearms, and the parapher-
nalia and chemicals neces-
sary for the manufacture of
methamphetamine. In con-
junction with the search of
Garrett's home, an additional
Darlington property was
searched. Evidence seized
from that property indicates
that it was set up as a meth-
amphetamine lab.

DeFuniak Springs Police
(DFSP) have arrested a man
wanted on charges of sale
and delivery of crack cocaine.
The arrest took place on
February 23 at the intersec-
tion of North 1st Street and
Sloss Avenue.
According to DFSP Lieu-
tenant Greg Gandy, Officer
Joey'Ward and Sgt. Carol
Skelton were dispatched in
response to a report of an in-
dividual "threatening and
brandishing a firearm" near
North 1st Street.
The alleged victims told
police that they were riding
in a car, and had got into a
verbal argument with the
occupant of another car.
They stated that the man
in the other car pointed a
weapon, which appeared to
be a .30 caliber rifle, and
threatened to shoot them
and "anyone else who both-
ered him."
They identified the man as
Paul N. Johnson. Johnson is
37, and his address is 185
Cook Avenue, DeFuniak
Springs.
Police ran the suspect's
name, and learned -that he


was wanted on an outstand-
ing warrant for sale and de-
livery of crack cocaine.
An alert was sent to on-
duty officers, and within five
minutes Johnson was located
at the intersection of North
1st and Sloss Avenue.
Ward and Skelton arrested
Johnson without incident. A
search of his vehicle revealed
a "short air rifle."
Johnson was transported
to Walton County Jail and
booked on the drug charge, as
well as aggravated assault
with a deadly weapon.,

County acts on


concern about


Tri-Village Fire Station


i ~A1Ilk Mw EE
IAFA~rfA


By DOTTYNIST
Walton County Attorney
David Hallman recently took
action to preserve a limita-
tion of use on the Tri-Village
Fire Station property in
Choctaw Beach, as directed
by the Walton County Board
of County Commissioners
(BCC.)
Hallman filed a notice on
the property records to freeze
any possible sale in order to
allow the BCC time to work
through issued related to the
use of the property, which the
BCC originally transferred to
the Trustees of the Choctaw
Beach Community Center in
1972.
The 1972 deed limited the
use of the property to recre-
ation.

On Feb. 17, 1976, the com-
munity center trustees
deeded the same property to
the Tri-Village Fire District.
The 1976 deed did not in-
clude the use limitation.
A group of Choctaw Beach
citizens recently became con-
cerned that the BCC's origi-
nal intent for the property for
recreation would not be ob-
served if and when its use as
a fire rescue facility were to
be discontinued.
Choctaw Beach resident
Wayland Davis commented
that he is aware that the Tri-
Village Fire District is cur-
rently exploring solicitation
bids for the property, leading
him to conclude that the fire
district may be proceeding
with the initial stages lead-
ing to its sale. The fire sta-
tion property is located on
the Choctawhatchee Bay and
would be desirable for other
purposes.
Davis said the Tri-Village
Fire District also owns two
acres on Cedar Street in


Choctaw Beach that could
house a fire station.
On Feb. 14, Davis and
other residents urged the
commissioners to keep the
current fire station site as
public rather than private or
commercial property if its
use as a fire station were to
change.
"Public land is scarce; re-
tain it for future land use,"
Davis requested.
At the commissioners' di-
rection, Hallman filed the
notice to forestall the possi-
bility of a sale of the property
in order to allow the commis-
sioners time to evaluate the
situation.
The deadline for the filing


was Feb. 17, 2006, 30 years
after the 1976 deeding of the
property. If that deadline had
not been met, according to
Hallman, the limitation on
usage could have been "extin-
guished" through the Mar-
ketable Record Title Act,
which is part of Florida Stat-
utes.
When the "Herald/Breeze"
attempted to speak with the
Tri-Village Fire District on
this topic, we were referred
to Walton County Fire Res-
cue, which is currently oper-
ating the Tri-Village Fire
Station. We were unable to
reach Walton County Fire
Manager Eddie Rivers for
comment.

RALLYING TO THE CAUSE at Confederate camp in
Lakeyard. ROBERTSON'S FLORIDA BATTERY fires a round of artillery at Lakeyard encampment.


Rebs and Yankees come to town


for Chautauqua Assembly


LADYAND GENTLEMANREBELS socialize at Lakeyard
Civil War camp.


By BRUCE COLLIER
As part of the 2006 Florida Chautauqua Assembly, the
Lakeyard was the scene of a "Living History Encampment"
of Civil War-era soldiers and civilians.
The appearance of re-enactor/actor Eli Chandler and his
troops has become an annual tradition of the assembly.
. The Confederates were fully encamped by Saturday morn-
ing. They received a steady trickle of visitors, including a
number -of children, who roamed the camp asking endless
questions.
Near a campfire, tables were set and laid with peanuts,


coffee, dried beef, cornbread, and other period rations.
Officers and men traded jokes and bits of Civil War trivia
with visitors, many posed for photos, alone or with families.
Also in camp was a medical tent, showing surgical equip-
ment of the time, including bone saws and artificial limbs.
Also present were a number of ladies, also in period dress.
Visitors were treated to demonstrations of cooking, march-
ing, equipment repair, camp maintenance, drill, rifle prac-
tice, and a demonstration of field artillery by Robertson's
Florida Battery.
Sunday afternoon was the scene of skirmishing with fed-
eral troops, as well as horsemanship.

Open Door Community Club meet


By SALLY ORLOSKY
Open Door Club president,
Barbara McLellan opened
the meeting before a full-
house group at Crossroads
Best Western Motel on
Thursday, Feb. 9. She then
introduced guest and new
member, Barbara De-
Loughty.
Vice-president/program di-
rector Anne Ryan then intro-
duced the guest speaker,
Cindy McKinley, R.N., execu-
tive director of Stanley House
Assisted Living Community
and her assistant, Stacie
Hanagriff L.P.N., resident
care coordinator.
McKinley stated that
working with the elderly is
all that she has ever done
and all that she ever wanted
to do. They give back to her
more than she gives to them.
"I always know at the end of
my day that I have made a
difference in the lives of the
residents," she said.
She then described the dif-


ferences between normal ab-
sent-mindedness and signs of
early dementia and early
warning sign of Alzheimer's
disease. Among the many
warning signs are:
Memory loss that affects
day-to-day function. It is nor-
mal to forget occasionally,
colleagues' names or a
friend's phone number and
remember them later. The
Alzheimer's patient may for-
get things more often and not
remember them later, espe-
cially things that have hap-
pened more recently.
Another sign is difficulty
performing familiar tasks.
This is not just omitting serv-
ing an item for a meal. A per-
son with Alzheimer's may be
unable to prepare any part of
the meal or even forget that
they ate a meal.
There may be problems
with language. Forgetting a
word can be normal, but an
Alzheimer's patient may for-
get simple words or substi-


GUEST SPEAKER, Cindy
McKinley, RN, Executive Di-
Srector Stanley House
tute inappropriate words,
making their sentences diffi-
cult to interpret.
Another problem can be
disorientation of time and
place. It is normal to forget
the day of the week or your
destination for a moment. An
Alzheimer's patient can be-
come lost in his/her own
neighborhood and not know
how to get home.
Another warning sign
could be poor or decreased
judgment: People may put off
going to a doctor until a
health problem is serious,
but eventually seek medical
attention. A person with
Alzheimer's may not recog-
nize infection as a problem
and not go to the doctor at all.
They may also dress inap-

McKinley provided very
informative handouts for all
of the members of the club
and encouraged everyone to
support the Pilot Club's
Brain Disorder Support
Foundation's awareness ef-
forts.
Barbara McLellan thanked
the speaker and opened the
Club's business meeting with
information about its partici-
pation in the Walton County
History Fair. She also
thanked Joan Cibiras for lo-


eating and assisting us in re-
trieving the club's albums
from the library.
A three-member nominat-
ing committee will prepare
and submit a roster of officer
nominees for the 2006-2007

propriately, wearing heavy
clothing on a very hot day.
Problems may exist with
abstract thinking. People
sometimes find balancing a
checkbook difficult. A person
with Alzheimer's could forget
what the numbers are and
also what needs to be done
with them. Celebrating a
birthday is a normal event,
but a person with
Alzheimer's might not under-
stand what a birthday
means.
Anyone can temporarily
misplace a wallet or keys. A
person with Alzheimer's dis-
ease may put things in inap-
propriate places such as an
iron in the freezer or a wrist-
watch in the sugar bowl.
Changes in mood or be-
havior also accur. Someone
with Alzheimer's can exhibit
rapid mood swings-from calm
to tears to anger-for no ap-
parent reason.
People's personalities can
change with age. A person
with Alzheimer's disease can
change dramatically, becom-
ing extremely confused, sus-
picious or withdrawn.
Changes may also include
apathy, fearfulness or acting
inappropriately.
It is normal to tire of house-
work, business activities or
social obligations, but most
people regain their initiative.
A person with Alzheimer's
disease may become very
passive and require cues and
prompting to become in-
volved.
Is there anything that
people can do to possibly pre-
vent the onset ofAlzheimer's
disease?
Any activity that exercises
the thought processes is very
good for the elderly as such
:activities can enhance; mind
function and memory reten-
tion. Early intervention in a
suspected Alzheimer's pa-
tient can be very effective if

Department of

Juvenile Justice

doctor surprised

at autopsy finding


By BRUCE COLLIER
A medical examiner's rul-
ing that sickle cell trait
caused the death of a 14-
year-old boot camp inmate
reportedly "surprised" a De-
partment of Juvenile Justice
(DJJ) doctor.
Dr. Shairi Turner, chief
medical officer for DJJ, tes-
tified before a. state legisla-
tive committee investigating
the suspicious death of Mar-
tin Lee Anderson.
Anderson, who had been
committed to a Bay County
juvenile boot camp, died
January 6 in a Pensacola
hospital.
His death occurred one day
following a videotaped inci-
dent, in which boot camp
guards apparently struck
and kneed him.
Bay County medical exam-
iner (ME) Dr. Charles F.
Siebert Jr. performed an au-
topsy, and concluded that
Anderson's death was the re-
sult of sickle call trait.
Sickle cell trait is a blood
condition reportedly affecting
one in 12 black people.
Speaking to the Florida
House of Representatives'
Criminal Justice Appropria-
tions Committee, Turner
said, "It's very, very unlikely
that anyone would have real
physical manifestations of a
sickle cell trait.
"The gene itself usually
doesn't cause physical ill-
ness," said Turner.
Siebert maintained the ac-
curacy of his findings, adding
that "numerous articles"
document cases where sickle
cell trait caused death.
"This isn't an unheard of


thing," said Siebert.
Addressing the same com-
mittee, DJJ chief of staff
Chris Caballero said "If a
youth becomes belligerent,
combative, difficult to
handle, some techniques
may be used such as a knee
strike, strike to the arm if
the youth becomes unman-
ageable."
DJJis expected to make
policy change recommenda-
tions to Governor Jeb Bush
by the end of this week.
Bay County Sheriff Frank
McKeithen notified the state
last week that Bay County
would terminate its contract
to operate its boot camp for
DJJ.

Frazier
1ichard Talmadge Frazier,
80, passed away Monday,
February 27, 2006, in a
Niceville healthcare facility.
He was born December 12,
1925, in Kinston, AL, the son
of George Dallis Frazier and
Lee Annie Margaret Byrd
Frazier.
He was known to some as
R.T., to some as Talmadge,
to some as Dick, and to the
rest of us as Papa.
He loved music and he
loved to dance. What he
lacked in talent he made up
for with enthusiasm.
He loved to make improve-
ments to his home and built
beautiful patios and walk-
ways and landscaping. He
enjoyed frying mullet for
family and friends on the
patio and always enjoyed
having a house full of friends
and family to enjoy Viona's
good cooking. He loved to
watch the birds in the trees
and the turtles sunning
themselves on the logs in the
backyard pond.
We will miss him, but we
are happy to picture him
again with his beloved
brother, Nix, entertaining
the angels by doing what
they always loved doing
most; sitting at the table, tell-
ing the old stories about
funny things and one-of-a-
king relatives, laughing un-
til they cried and their sides
hurt and then laughing some
more.
He is predeceased by his
parents and his brother,
Hinton Nix Frazier. The fam-
ily wishes to think the kind
and loving staff of Sterling
House in Niceville, Covenant
Hospice and Dr. Kenneth
Ponder for taking such
goodcare of papa.
Among survivors are his
wife, Viona White Frazier;
his daughters, Pamela K.
Frazier-Tanner and hus-
band, Michael, of Navarre,
and Tana Renee Frazier, of
Niceville; three grandchil-
dren; Rachel Renne Thomp-
son, Dustin K. Thompson
and wife, Amanda, and Mat-
thew D. Frazier; his great-
grandson, Travis Paul Th-
ompson; his brother, Dillis R.
Frazier and wife, Pam of
Crestview; his sisters-in-law,
GeriA. Frazier, of Minneapo-
lis, MN, Leona Ingram, of De-
Funiak Springs, Cil Mitchell,
of Panama City, and Gladys
Fountain, of Florala; his
brother-in-law, Eldridge
Kemp, ofWaco, TX; family by
choice, Ouida and Jim Long,
of Niceville, and Doris and
Larry Di Polo, of Crestview,
and numerous cousins,
nieces and nephews.
Memorials may be made in
Frazier's memory to Cov-
enant Hopsice or to
Alzheimer's Foundation. A
time of visitation was sched-
uled for Wednesday, March 1,
2006 from 1 to 3 p.m. at First

Why?
By Dr. Charles Satterwhite
Pastor, Freeport UMC
Do you remember the countless why questions from our chil-
dren? Finally, after the barrage of why, we finally
answered,"because I said so." This was not a good answer, but
why questions often are risky questions. God created us to ask
why questions. One such question is, if Jesus loves us enough
to send the Holy Spirit to convict us of our sin, why are westill
sinners?
Had God created us to make us respond His answer like
ours would have been, "because I said so." Instead, God cre-
ated us to act intelligently, to choose to serve God. The heart
responds to God. Why God would love us through Jesus Christ
is a mystery. The Law of Moses was a mirror of what we were
inside. We were desperate, and we longed for reconciliation with
God. Well, Jesus became the one to reconcile us to God.
Repent of your sin, ask Christ to cleanse you from sin. Then,
get into a Bible-believing church where you can grow. Start
reading God's Word, and praying. If you have a need, I know
personally that the Freeport United Methodist Church family
can and will intercede for you until you hear from God.
Stop by here on your way to eternity! 8.45 Sunday School;
10 a.m. Service; 6 p.m. Bible Study, Wednesday prayer, Bible
Study.

Loving Memories


Your gentle face and
patient smile
With sadness we recall,
SYou had a kindly
word for each
And died beloved by all.

The voice is mute and
stilled the heart
That loved us well
and true,
Ah, bitter was the
trial to part
From one so good as you,

You are not forgotten
loved one
Nor will you ever be,
As long as life and
memory last
We will remember thee.

We miss you now,
our hearts are sore,
As time goes by
we miss you more.
Your loving smile,
your gentle face,
No one can fill your
vacant place.


Thank You
The family of Fred B.

friends and family for all the

We especially want to
thank Covenant Hospice of

care they gave our loved one.

Our life has not been the
same without you;
We will never forget you;
In the mist of our sorrows
I know if you were here
today, you would say why
cry for a soul set free.
Miss me a little, but not
too long, and not with
Your head bowed low;
Remember the love that
we once shared;
SMiss me but let me go.
For this is a journey,
that we all must take;
And each must go alone.
It's all a part of the
Master's plan.
A step on the road home,
when you are lonely and
sick at heart, go to the
friend we know and bury
your sorrows, in.doing
good deeds.
Miss me but let me go.

Loving compassion,

Ribault edges Walton 69-67 in region final


by PATRICK CASEY
Ashton Campbell's 3-point
shot just missed off the front
of the iron as Jacksonville
Ribault held off a 26-point
rally to defeat the Walton
Braves 69-67 in the Class 3A
boys basketball Region 1 fi-
nal.
Playing in front of a
packed house, Walton rallied
in the final four minutes of
play after falling behind 54-
31 after three quarters. Josh
Nettles sparked Walton's de-
fense as the Braves forced a
myriad of turnovers and con-
verted the miscues into easy
points from the floor and the
free throw line to claw their
way back into the game in the
final stanza. Walton trailed
by a point with 11 seconds to
play when the Braves forced
a turnover and called
timeout. Walton couldn't get
the ball in bounds on the fol-
lowing possession and threw
the ball away, forcing Walton
to commit a foul with six sec-
onds left in the game.
Ribault's Quinton Ragland
was able to convert only 1-of-
2 free throws for a 69-67 lead.
The Braves raced up the floor
and found Campbell, who had
a good look at the basket, but
misfired by inches on what
would have been a game-win-
ning three-point shot. The
Braves could not grab a re-
bound on the miss quick
enough to get a shot off be-
fore the game ended, much to
the dismay of the partisan
Braves crowd.
The Braves opened the
game with a cold stretch of
shooting that lasted the en-
tire night from the three-
point line. Walton trailed 17-
7 after one quarter of play
due to cool shooting and ball-
handling mistakes that led to
turnovers and easy baskets
for the Trojans. Ribault's 6-9
center Gertavian Blake and
6-10 forward Ronnie
Crummell gobbled up re-


bounds in the first half of
play, limiting Walton to one
shot on several possessions in
the first half.
Gary Neavins was the star
of the first half as he canned
four of his five 3-pointers in
the opening half of the game
to help the Trojans to a 34-22
halftime lead.
The third quarter was a
disaster for Walton as they
were outscored 20-9 and
made only two baskets from
the floor. Turnovers and poor
defense helped Ribault build
a 23-point lead after three
quarters, though foul trouble
did slow down the combo of
Blake and Crummell.
Walton finally got on track
with six minutes to play in
the game as the Braves
turned up the defense and
began to force turnovers from
Ribault. Crummell and
Blake both fouled out in the
final three minutes of the
game and Walton's Darryl
McGhee took over the inside
domination.
McGhee scored 15 of his
game-high 23 points in the
fourth quarter and Walton
helped the rally by shooting
16-of-21 from the free throw
line in the final eight minutes
to close the gap while the
clock was stopped.
Ragland made 7-of-10 free
throws in the final period
while leading scorer Chris
Summers hit 3-of-5 free
throws to keep Ribault in
front as the Trojans could
manage only two baskets of
their own'in the fourth quar-
ter. Summers finished the
night with 19 points while
Ragland and Neavins had 15
apiece.
Walton lost the game at
the three-point line as the
Braves made only 1-of-24
three point shots. Jeremy
Dunbar hit the lone 3-pointer
of the contest for Walton as
he drilled a shot right before
the halftime buzzer. Shot af-


ter shot from long range
would not go down for Wal-
ton, including Campbell's fi-
nal shot of the game.
Unofficial numbers
showed Walton hitting only
21-of-71 shots from the floor
while Ribault hit 23-of-57.
Each team had problems tak-
ing care of the ball as both
teams had more than 20 turn-


DARYL McGHEE GOES
FOR the three-pointer dur-
ing Walton's game against
Jacksonville Ribault. De-
spite recovering from a 26.
point deficit in the fourth
quarter, the Braves lost the
Class 3A regional by two
points and ending Walton's
season with a 23-7 season.


overs, a number that evened
out when Walton made their
comeback in the fourth quar-
ter.
Asthon Campbell scored
14 points in the contest while
Dunbar added 13. Campbell
ended his four year career 14
points shy of the 1,000 career
point mark at Walton while
McGhee finished with 1,103
points in four years of play.
Notes:
Walton(23-7) graduates
nine seniors from the 2005-
06 squad, but will likely be
the early favorite in the dis-
trict next season. Unfortu-
nately for the Braves, Ribault
is composed almost entirely of
underclassmen, and several
of the opponents at the Final
4 in Lakeland are young
teams, so their will be plenty
of challenges for a much
younger Braves basketball
team come November 2006.
Jerry Hester is 69-37 in
four years as head coach, in-
cluding a record of 45-14 the
last two seasons.
The crowd was perhaps
the largest to witness a Wal-
ton boys basketball game,
and larger than the packed
house for the Laurel Hill
regular season contest.
Ribault will face Orlando
Jones in the state semifinal.
Jones rallied from eight
points down in the final four
minutes of their game at
Gainesville P.K. Yonge to
knock off the Blue Wave.
Laurel Hill, Milton, and
Port St. Joe are the only three
representatives from the
Panhandle/Big Bend region
in boys basketball at the state
Final 4 in Lakeland.
Laurel Hill has the best
chance to claim a state cham-
pionship if they can knock off
LakeMary.r '(31-0) in the
Class A state semifinal. Port
St. Joe andMilton will both
be considerable underdogs in
their semifinals.


WALTON'S KENNY WALKER GOES UP for the two-
point shot against a Jacksonville Ribault player during the
Class 3A regional final this past weekend at Walton High i
School. The Braves lost, 69-67.

Mossy Head Water Works, Inc.
2005 Quality Water Report


We are pleased to announce that our drinking water
meets all federal and state requirements.

We're very pleased to provide you with this year's Annual Water Quality Report. We want to keep you informed about the
excellent water and services we have delivered to you over the past year. Our goal is and always has been to provide to
you a safe and dependable supply of drinking water. Our water source is ground water from 3 wells. The wells draw from r
the Floridan Aquifer. Because of the excellent quality of our water, the only treatment required is chlorine for disinfection
purposes.

The Florida Department of Environmental Protection is in the process, of conducting Source Water Assessments for all pub-
lic water systems in Florida. These assessments will identify and assess any potential sources of contamination in the vicin-
ity of your water supply. A Source Water Assessment for this system has been completed, and a report is available at the
DEP Source Water Assessment and Protection Program web site: http://www.dep.state.fl.us/swapp.

If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact Mossy Head Water Works Inc.
at (850) 892-6154. We encourage our valued customers to be informed about their water utility. If you want to learn more,
please attend any of our regularly scheduled meetings. They are held on the first Monday of each month at our office build-
ing at 7 p.m.

Tips for Saving Water
* Don't over water your lawn. Only water every three to five days in the summer and 10 to 14 days in the winter. ,
* To prevent water loss from evaporation, don't water your lawn during the hottestpart of the day or when it is windy.
* Only run the dishwasher and clothes washer when they are fully loaded.
* Defrost frozen food in the refrigerator or in the microwave instead of running water over it.
* When washing dishes by hand, use two basins one for washing and one for rinsing rather than let the water run.
* Use a broom, rather than a hose, to clean sidewalks and driveways.
* If you have a swimming pool, get a cover. You'll cut the loss of water by evaporation by 90 percent.
* Repair dripping faucets and leaky toilets. Dripping faucets can waste about 2,000 gallons of water each year. Leaky toilets
can waste as much as 200 gallons each day.

Mossy Head Water Works Inc. routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and State
laws, rules, and regulations. Except where indicated otherwise, this report is based on the results of our monitoring for the
period of January 1 to December 31, 2005. Data obtained before January 1, 2005, and presented in this report are from the
most recent testing done in accordance with the laws, rules, and regulations.

In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the EPA prescribes regulations, which limit the amount of certain contami-
nants in water provided by public water systems. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations establish limits for
contaminants in bottled water, which must provide the same protection for public health.

Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonable be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contami-
nants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk. More information
about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agency's Safe
Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791.

The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, pounds, reservoirs, springs,
and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally. docurring minerals and,
in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human
activity. i .

Contaminants that may be present in source water include:

(A) Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems,
agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife.
(B) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban stormwater run-
off, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining or farming.
(C) Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff, and
residential uses.
(D) Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals,, which are by-products of industrial
processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff, and septic systems.
(E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and .gas production and mining
activities.

In the table below, you may find unfamiliar terms and abbreviations. To help you betterunderstand these terms we've pro-
vided the following definitions: t.
Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL: The highesftlbiel of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set
as close to the MCLGs as feasible Using the best available treatment technology.
Maximum Contaminant Level Goal or MCLG: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no
known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety.
Action Level (AL): The concentration of a contaminant which, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements that a.
water system must follow.
Picocurie per liter (pCi/L) measure of the radioactivity in water.
"ND" means not detected and indicates that the substance was not found by laboratory analysis.
Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mgl/) one part by weight of analyte to 1 million parts by weight of the
water sample.
Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter (ugll) one part by weight of analyte to 1 billion parts by weight of the
water sample.
Maximum residential disinfectant level or MRDL The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is:
convincing evidence that addition of a disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants.
Maximum residential disinfectant level goal or MRDLG The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is
no known or expected risk to health. MRDLGs do not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to control microbial
contaminants.

Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-
compromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone
organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be par-
tic'-arly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care pro-
vic rs. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other
mic biologicall contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791).

We at the Mossy Head Water Works Inc. work daily to insure that our customers are provided with the highest quality drink-
ing vater available. We encourage all members to become actively involved in the business of your system.

NFC drops PdL in Lakeland 65-55


by PATRICK CASEY
The Ponce de Leon Pirates
ran into the North Florida
Christian Eagles for the third
time this season in Lakeland
in a Class 2A state semifinal
contest, hoping for a different
outcome than in their first
two regular season meetings.
Unfortunately, the Eagles
claimed their fifth straight
win over the Pirates over the
last two seasons and a berth
into the state championship
game with a 65-55 victory.
PDL struggled with turn-
overs in the first quarter and
foul trouble as, sophomore
center Mary Howes picked up
two quick fouls in the first
four minutes of the contest.
Howes was relegated to the
bench for most of the first
half, as NFC built a 19-12
first quarter lead without the
Pirates top scorer on the'floor.
Lacey Griffin helped keep the
Pirates close with 11 first half
points and PDL held NFC
scoreless the first five min-
utes of the second quarter to
rally within 25-23 at t he half.
NFC came out hot in the
third quarter as they hit 7-of-

13 shots from the floor and 3-
of-4 three-point shots to build
a 45-41 lead after three peri-
ods of play. Senior Catherine
Tinsley responded with eight
points in the third quarter to
keep the Pirates close, but
PDL was hurt again by fouls
as Howes picked up two more
in the third quarter to end the
frame with four fouls.
The Eagles, who hit 23-
of49 shots in the contest, fin-
ished the fourth quarter with
another stellar shooting per-
formance as they connected
on 7-of-ll shots in the final
frame to pull out a 65-55 win.
The Pirates were hurt by
16 turnovers in the game and
had trouble keeping the
Eagles off the boards with
Howes out of the lineup with
foul trouble as NFC grabbed
34 rebounds to 25 for the Pi-
rates. NFC used 13 offensive
rebounds to get second-
chance points that never al-
lowed the Pirates to catch
them in the second half of
play.
Maggie Wright scored 15
points to lead the Pirates
while Griffin and Tinsley had


$400/team. Reserve space for
your team by March 24. Lots
of contests and prizes, and
lunch will be provided.

Goodbye Torino,

hello Vancouver


By CHUCK HINSON
After all the glamour, glitz
and pageantry of the closing
ceremonies in Turin, Italy on
Sunday evening, the games
look ahead to 2010 for the
Olympic Games in Vancou-
ver, Canada.
It was an array of lights,
dancers, singers, acrobats,
confetti and fireworks, as the
Turin, Italy games came to a
close this past Sunday eve-
ning. Once again ICOG
President Jacques Rogge
said that the people of Turin
had met their goals and had
produced a magnificent
event. .
The crowds cheered as
thousands of little red Italian
flags filled the stadium as di
Centa, the official mascot of
the Torino Games, and his
fellow medalists came to the
podium to distribute medals.
Germany took home the
most, with 29,, and -the
United States followed with
25.
After all the excitement of
the 2006 Winter Olympics,
the Canadian flag was lifted
and the national song, "O '
Canada" was performed by
British Columbia-born opera
star Ben Heppner. Once the


song had ended, Turin, Italy
mayor Sergio Chiamparino
handed the Olympic flag to
Rogge, who in return gave
the flag to the 2010 host city,
Vancouver's mayor Sam Sul-
livan.
Sullvan, who is a quadri-
plegic since a skiing accident
when he was 19, was not able
to hold the flagpole bearing
the Olympic flag. He had his
wheelchair customized with
a pole holder which allowed
him to spin his chair and let
the flag pop in a circle, letting
everyone know that Canada
will be in the spotlight next.
After the pageantry, the
Olympic flag that had flow-
ing for the entire two weeks
of the game was lowered. A
sea of white-gowned dancers
drifted across the field as
their torches slowly began to
fade out. Overhead, the audi-
ence watched as the Olympic
flame ,w -s exstiguished for
another two years.
The next time the torch or
flag will fly again for the
games will be in 2008 at the
Summer Games in Beijing,
China and then again in 2010
for the next Winter Olympic
Games to be held in Vancou-
ver.


11 points apiece. NFC shut
down Griffin in the second
half as she went 0-for-5 from
the floor after hitting all five
of her shots in the first half
of play.
Howes, who averaged 15
points a game entering the
semifinal, was held to one
point from the free throw line
and 0-for-4 shooting from the
floor. Foul trouble kept her
from ever getting into the
flow of the game. Daydra
Brown played in Howes place
for a considerable portion of
the game and scored 10
points on 5-of-5 shooting to
pick up the slack on the inte-
rior.
The loss wrapped up the
2005-06 season for PDL with
an overall record of 26-6 and
was the final game for seniors
Catherine Tinsley arid Sa-
vannah Whigham.
NFC lost the state title
game to Orlando First Acad-
emy 54-31 as they were
outscored 22-4 in the third
period of play by a much
taller Academy squad, thus
denying the Eagles.their first
state title in girls basketball.

Keniseth

wins

Auto

Club 500
By CHUCK HINSON
It was due to a turn of bad
luck for Tony Stewart and
Greg Biffle, but one of good
fortune for the 2003 Cup
champion, Matt Kenseth.
After both of the leading
cars (Stewart and Biffle) had
to head in to the pit due to
late-race engine problems,
Kenseth pulled ahead and
captured the cup at the Fon-
tana, CA., race this past Sun-
day.
Kenseth told reporters, "I
didn't think I would do any
better than second place,
even after Stewart had to hit
the pit."
Stewart's blown engine
sent him to the garage dur-
ing the 214th lap of the 250-
lap race. After the caution
flag was waved, Kenseth was
put ahead of Biffle, but it
wasn't until smoke began to
pour out of the exhaust and
Biffle headed to the garage,
did Kenseth realize the pos-
sible outcome.
After Biffle was out of the
race, Kenseth only had to
hold off Daytona 500 victor,
Jimmie Johnson. In the end,
Kenseth did .not allow
Johnson to pass him and he
took the victory lap by 0.338
seconds, or at least .five car
lengths.
It was his llth career vic-
tory, but only his second win
in his last 72 attempts.
Kenseth led 40 laps, includ-
ing the final 33, giving the
Ford Motor Company its
first Auto Cup victory since
introducing the new Fusion


model.
Top 10 finshers were:
1) M. Kenseth. Ford
2) J. Johnson, Chevy
3) C. Edwards Ford
4) F. Kahne ; Dodge
5) J. Burton Chevy

input key to


EDC's success


By LEAH STRATMANN
After a little more than a
week on the job, new Eco-
nomic Development Council
of Walton County (EDC) di-
rector Bob Smith has barely
gotten his feet wet, but he
already likes what he sees in
DeFuniak Springs and the
rest of the county.
"The potential is here to
supply a high quality work
force. That is one of the as-
sets I see here. Things are
changing very rapidly. The
sense of community is strong
here and it seems like a place
I will want to call home for a
long, long time," he said.
Securing economic devel-
opment in a county with the
lowest unemployment in the
state is a challenge Smith
looks forward to. "There are
many advantages to this re-
gion. This is a growing com-
munity with a nearby inter-
state highway, the asset of
nearby Air Force bases, good
educational systems in
place-all positive assets po-
tential employerslookfor,"he
stated.
Smith said he likes to
benchmark what other com-
munities are doing right and
see if those qualitie& can be
tailored to fit his newv com-
munity. With a background
in marketing, he fepls target
marketing and strategic
planning are key elements to
strong economic develop-
ment.
"You go to trade shows and
identify yourself. Market
yourself to consultants. It
may take years, but eventu-
ally you will have made that
initial contact. My job is to
get our name and our assets
out to as many people as pos-
sible. The sources are out
there and we will identify
every source that we can to
find leads.
"We don't want to drive a
square peg into a round hole,"
he said. "Instead, we need to
find out what works for us as
a county. We need to fit new
companies to the existing
and expanding skills in the
county. We need to find a
match."
Smith feels the basis of all
economic development is to
ultimately raise the standard
of living, but that includes
more than just more money
in paychecks. "I'm all about
value-added incentives to
make better opportunities for
everyone. We are not just

looking for more jobs, but
those jobs that increase
people's quality of life.
Higher education always in-
creases higher quality jobs,"
he said.
"There is no short term so-
lution. We have a lot of people
capable of doing more and
better things. We should
work from an underem-
ployed state to raise every-
body up."
He explains this by saying
that office help is no longer
just about being able to type.
Office workers need software
skills such as Word, Excel
and other programs to be ef-
fective assistants in today's
marketplace.
"Employers are for basic
skill levels in potential em-
ployees, but they also know
there will be specific skill
training in their companies
to fulfill specific job sets."
Smith feels strongly the
EDC needs to have relation-
ships with existing industry
in the area as well, since
many jobs come from expan-
sion in companies already in
place. Levels of performance
are based on a lot of ele-
ments, such as keeping in
touch with businesses in
place and watching for ex-
pansion opportunities.
"I'm only as good as the
best efforts of the community.
I will do my best to pull all
the teams together to make
this work. That includes all
levels of government. I do not
know everything about every
industry, but with the board,
we can do the very best for
Walton County by putting
the right elements in place.
The board is very community
oriented and wants to make
things work. There is a lot of
community interest here.
"In this job, you listen a
lot. Potential employers have
specific desires and these
need to be met. Each poten-
tial employer is a project and
you have to manage the
project from beginning to
end, with the end hopefully
bringing the employer to this
region.
"Everyone in this commu-
nity has something to add to
the economic development
process. I have an open door
so if anyone has questions or
something to offer, they
should come by. I'm ready to
listen."

THE LOCATION of some post-Hurricane Dennis seawalls in the old part of Seagrove has presented a problem for Walton
County. Some portions of the walls are reported to have been inadvertently constructed on county-owned beach rather than
private property. The construction companyy responsible for the work is owned by Walton County commissioner Ro Cuchens:




Seawalls built in error




on public beach


By DOTTY NIST

Post-Hurricane Dennis
seawalls have certainly
been controversial in Wal-
ton County, but a set con-
structed in one area is pos-
ing a particular quandary
for the county.
Recently it has come to
light that some of the emer-
gency seawalls constructed
by homeowners in the old
part of Seagrove are located
on public beach rather than
on private property.
Local engineer Terry
Anderson, representing a
group of homeowners, has
requested after-the-fact ap-
proval from the Walton
County Board of County


STEVE UNDERWOOD works on Blue Star Marker.


Commissioners (BCC) for
walls constructed on the
gulf side of 11 Seagrove
beachfront homes to occupy
the public beach.
Building permits for the
seawalls indicate that they
were constructed by
Choctawhatchee Bay Piling
& Dock, Inc., the company
owned by Ro Cuchens, a
Walton County commis-
sioner.
The 11 homes are located
along CR-30A near the CR-
395 intersection.
By last week nearly all
portions of the seawalls
spanning that .area had
been covered with sand, as
has occurred with most of
the emergency seawalls
constructed in south Walton
County.
In an agenda submission
form for the Feb. 14 BCC
meeting, Anderson stated
that the walls in front of the
11 homes were "inadvert-
ently built on county prop-
erty." According to his draw-
ings submitted to the BCC
showing the location- of the
seawalls, some of the walls
are as much as 40 feet out-
side the homeowners' prop-
erty boundaries.
Plats from the Seagrove
subdivision, approved in
the 1950s, indicate that a
"swimming park" on the
beachfront was dedicated to
the public along with the
streets and roads in the
subdivision.
In addition to some of the
seawalls in the old Seagrove
area occupying the dedi-
cated beach, walls in the
area under discussion
stretch across two of the
county's public beach ac-
cesses at Holly and Azalea
street, apparently in the
absence of the homeowners,
engineer or contractor seek-


ing permission from the
county, an issue that has
not been addressed.
Anderson has explained
that the retaining walls
were built after Hurricane
Dennis hit the coast to pro-
tect home foundations from
additional damage.

From the time the im-
pacts of Hurricane Dennis
devastated many areas of
the Walton County coast-'
line last July, through Oc-
tober 28, Walton County
provided emergency per-
mits to beachfront property
owners, allowing them to
construct temporary sea-
walls and other coastal
armoringg" aimed at pre-
venting further erosion-re-
lated damage to their
homes. The emergency per-
mits were issued with the
understanding that, in or-
der for any coastal seawalls
to be allowed to remain per-
manently, the property
owner must obtain a permit
for the structure from the
state Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection
(DEP).
Anderson indicated that
BCC approval of the sea-
walls built on county beach
would be requiredin prder
for the state to issue a per-
mit for the walls.
Gary Demers of Walton
County Planning com-
mented on Feb. 27 that each
person obtaining a county
permit for a temporary sea-
wall structure was notified
that "it was their responsi-
bility to make sure they met
all DEP's requirements if
they intended to apply to
make the structure perma-
nent.
"Issues of keeping the
structure on their own
property and building to a


specific engineering design
Would jeopardize their
chances of getting a perma-
nent permit for the struc-
ture," Demers added.

Last week DEP spokes-
person Sarah Williams con-
firmed that applications for
seawalls at the 11 homes
had been submitted aid
were under review. She
stated that in cases where
coastal seawalls occupy
property other than the
applicant's, a letter signify-
ing no objection by the prop-
erty owner would be a mini-
mum state requirement for
approval of the structure.
The BCC did not discuss
Anderson's approval re-
quest at the Feb. 14 meet-
ing. The item was post-
poned to allow for discus-
sions between Anderson
and county Legal Services
director David Hallman in
an effort to resolve the situ-
ation.
On Feb. 27, Hallman said
he is working to find a so-
lution that is in the best in-
terest of the property own-
ers, the public and that of
native endangered species,
which U.S. Fish and Wild-
life claims have suffered
negative impacts due to
coastal seawalls in Walton
County. Hallman said that
any plan that he and Ander-
son develop would be
brought before the BCC in
public session.
"The board of county
commissioners will have to
decide whether the sea-
walls are to remain on
county property," he com-
mented.
Anderson and Cuchens
had not responded to tele-
phone messages seeking
their comment for this ar-
ticle as of press time.

TESTING AND FINDING

A WATER LEAK

If your water bill is higher than usual for no
apparent reason its time to do a little household
investigating to see if you have a leak.


First. turn off all appliances that use \ ater such
as washing machines, ice-makers, and faucets. Then,
make sure no one uses any water for at least an hour.
That means do not use any sinks or faucets, in-
side or out, and no toilet flushing. Next, go out-
side and check the reading on your meter. After an
hour, check the meter again. If it has not moved then
there are no leaks. If it has, check each fixture. fau-
cet and appliance, one by one. Be sure to also look
for any telltale puddles or wet spots on floors or ceil-
ing. A leak within a wall or under a floor, left unat-
tended, could result in serious structural damage over
a period of time.


If \ou still can't find the leak in the house you
S can step up your investigation and try to determine
if a leak is outside the house.


First. you will need to turn the water off where
it enters your home. Note the reading on the water
meter and then take a break. Later, check the meter
again and see if the reading has changed. If the read-
S ing has changed then you have found the leak. If it
hasn't. then you may need to call a plumber and have
him determine if yru have a leak.


By taking a little time to get to the bottom of
\our rising water bill, you could save a lot of money.

After a weekend of
lectures, exhibits,
concerts, shows and
demonstrations and
sparatic downpours,
the 2006 Florida
Chautauqua saw
record crowds. This
could only mean that
the Assembly is on
the right track and
looks forward to an-
other year of educa-
tion and entertain-
ment.

Despite having to dodge
some downpours and thun-
derstorms, more people than
ever attended the 2006 Flor-
ida Chautauqua Assembly
this past weekend in DeFu-
niak Springs. It was a week-
end that offered educational,
programs, artistic demon-
strations and exhibits, clas-
sical and country concerts
and lectures series that were
both thought-provoking and
eye-opening.
Not being able to attend all
the scheduled events this
past weekend, I did manage
to go to several that really
made an impression on me
and made me appreciate the
Assembly.
On Thursday evening, I,
along with 300 or more, at-
tended a packed concert at
the DeFuniak Springs Com-
munity Center to hear the
Farmer's Opry. A magnifi-
cent array of drum, guitar,
keyboardist and singers that
sang a variety of gospel,
country and patriotic num-
bers.
No seats could be found as
the exhibition hall was filled
to capacity and the attendees
were dressed in everything
from suit and ties, to cowboy
boots and jeans. It was inter-
esting to see how many
people from all over the area
followed this entertaining
group, and just how far they
travelled to see them per-
form.
On Friday and Saturday, I





















THE HALL OF BROTH-
ERHOOD was transformed
into painter and porcelain
gallery during the four days
of the Chautauqa Assembly
program. Several local artists
displayed their works in por-
celain, pastels, oil and water-
colors.


was able to tour the
Chautauqua Hall of Brother-
hood where porcelain artists
and other artists had their
works displayed. This was
accompanied by a spot of tea
and biscuits across the street
at the Victorian tea room
that was booked with over
200 reservations for the

weekend.
Everything else went to
the dogs. By that I mean the
demonstrations that were
held on the canine and mas-
ters' behalf at the am-
phitheatre.
Diane Fyfe instructed and
taught how humans and
animals can coincide in the
same place, while giving tips
on how to respect each other.
The dogs seemed to be
preoccupied with all the ex-
citement around the lake as
the re-enactment was set-
ting up for their daily tours
and demonstrations.
After a bumpy ride and
having to relocate for the
night due to a city order of
not being able to camp at the
Lakeyard, the re-enactment
camp put on a show of skir-
mishes that were taken
straight from the history
pages.
This event went on
throughout the weekend.
I was able to stop in on a
few other events, including
the Herald's own Bruce Col-
lier as he did an incredible
monologue of Teddy Roosev-
elt. Then on to hear the his-
tory of Louisa May Alcott
presented by Jan Turnquist,
the quilt exhibit on Baldwin
Street, and a quick listen to
the grand organ playing of
Dr. Robert Leslie at St.
Agatha's Church.
Saturday, the history fair
took place at the Walton
County Fairgrounds and
anything and everything
that anyone wanted to know
about Walton County, and
this part of Florida, could be;
found at the fair. Not to toot
our own horn, but the DeFu-
niak Herald, with the help of
Dennis had an impressive
array of Herald newspapers
from the early 1900s that
captured many major
events, locally and nation-
ally.


I was not able to attend the
Orlando Opera to hear David
Friedman, but those who
called me on Sunday said the
two brought the house down
and filled the soul up at the
same time. The weekend of
events also saw hundreds
attending demonstrations
and lectures by Dennis Ray,
Dara Dobson, Linda Van
Beck, Victor S. Bowman, Dr.
Valliere Richard, Judge Nel-
son Bailey, Linda Wargo,
Lynn Downham, Judy De-
bolt, Jim Moore, Samantha
Landy, Dr. Stanford R. Sil-
verburg, Eli Chander, Can-
dace Leslie, Judge James
Joanos, Priscilla A. Brown
Lloyd, Dr. Robert Larson,

Ann Tucker, Brenda Rees,
Dr. Don Rapp, Lana
Campbell and Father
Ashmun Brown.
It was a weekend of excit-
ing events that seemed to
stir the sparks past of history
and ignite the fires for edu-
cation and interest for the
present and future. The
Chautuaqua Assembly once
again proved that culture
and education can still be
found in small towns or any
major metropolitan city.
With the opening ceremo-
nies getting the 2006 Florida
Chautuaqua Assembly un-
derway, Diane Pickett wel-
comed everyone to the as-
sembly, and during the same
speech, announced that she
would be stepping down as
head of the program.
After several years of
being the president and or-
ganizer of the annual event,
she said that the board of
directors would be selecting
a new president for the 2007
program. Many hope that
the board will select some-
one that is not only local and
knowledgeable of the pro-
gram, but would also have
the capability to perform the
numerous task of the Flor-
ida Chautauqua by means of
organizing, publicizing and
working with the numerous
volunteers that give so much
of their time, efforts and
even money; to the Assem-
bly.
For it was the locals that
made up a majority of atten-
dees at the programs and
volunteers that make the
programs successful. With-
out either, their would be no
Chautuaqua Assembly, no
matter how much money is
spent on putting this event
on every year.
We all look forward to the
2007 Assembly and eagerly
await the new changes that
will be taking place in the
: organization in the following
year.

Locks of Love

By KRIS CHAVEZ

"I almost got cold feet," admits 11-year-old Kaylyn Carter
as she sits in a salon chair ready to donate 10 inches of her
hair to Locks of Love.'"Then I thought about how happy it
would make the sick kids that have lost their hair."
Kaylyn admits she's still a little nervous about cutting
her long hair. Stylist Amber Cross measures then cuts off a
10-inch ponytail while Kaylyn's mom, Jan Carter, and 16-
year-old sister, Samantha, offer words of encouragement.
Samantha explains that she learned about the Locks of Love
program from friends at school and donated her hair last
year.
"That's what inspired Kaylyn to let her hair grow and fol-
low in her big sister's footstepss" says mom, Jan Carter. "I
work here in Rosemary Beach and contacted Solace Day
Spa owner Jennifer Bartlett when Samantha came home
and told me that she wanted to donate her hair to Locks of
Love. I think it's wonderful that the salon participates by
offering the service free of charge."
Jennifer explains, "I learned about the program when a
24-year-old girl walked in one day ready to donate her w aist-
long hair. I immediately went online and registered with
Locks of Love as a participating salon." She attributes the
program s success to the children and young adults who,
seemingly by word of mouth, support it. "Because children
don't have money to give, this is a way for them to give some-
thing of their own. I've sent in 110 inches of donated hair
since October."
When the stylist finishes. Kaylyn carefully places her locks
of love in an envelope then smiles as she admires her classy,
new look in the mirror. Through the act of giving. Kaylyn
has transformed from a young girl into a young lady.
If you have locks of love to give, contact Locks of Love toll-
free at, 8I 8S96-158 orJennifer Bartlett at i8,501, 231-6S01.

Canadian News
(AP) The politicians seem to have more at stake than
the judge as Marshall Rothstein becomes the first candi-
date for the Supreme Court of Canada to face public ques-
tioning by MPs.
Nobody has suggested Rothstein isn't a good choice for
the court. Nor has anybody challenged the prediction of
Prime Minister Stephen Harper that his nominee will "pass
with flying colors."
Rather, the key question is whether parliamentarians can
curb their partisan passions and avoid the kind of bickering
that has marked similar hearings in the United States.
Rob Nicholson, the Conservative House leader in the Com-
mons, is confident they can do so.
"We have a different tradition in this country," Nicholson
said Sunday on CTV's Question Period.
Academic observers agree that the three-hour, televised
hearing on Monday afternoon will likely be more civil than
past sessions south of the border.
They fear, however, that the civility may be deceiving -
just a happy coincidence of this particular nomination and
that things won't go as smoothly in future.
Rothstein, a 14-year veteran of Federal Court renowned
for his command of commercial law, was chosen by Harper
from a short list of candidates developed under the previ-
ous Liberal government an oddity created by the timing of
the Jan. 23 federal election.
(AP) CANADIAN AIR travelers may soon encounter a
new breed of security screener with a keen sense of smell.

gers and baggage plans to team up with the RCIP to test
the use of bomb-sniffing German shepherds.

CATSA spokeswoman Anna-Karina Tabunar.
She declined to name the city because the air security au-
thority is still "trying to iron out some details" with the other
two prospective partners.
CATSA officials laying groundwork for the project hope it
will take place some time this year.
"They want to get this on track sooner than later," Tabunar
said in an interview.
The RCMP would be a crucial partner in the exercise, given
the force's longstanding work with canines, she added.
"They've been training for many, many years, so they've
got experience with certain breeds. We're just tapping into
their expertise."
More than 4,000 screening officers work for service pro-
viders under contract to CATSA at Canadian airports.

John Craig, mayor of St. Andrews, New Brunswick, said
he's confident Harper will act to protect the pristine waters
of Passamaquoddy Bay from environmental threats posed
by proposed LNG terminals and tanker traffic.
Craig said the town is giving Harper until April to clearly
state whether tankers would be allowed to navigate Head
Harbor Passage,.an internal Canadian waterway, to deliver
liquefied natural gas to terminals on the Maine coast.
"As a town, we have given Greg (Thompson) about 60 days
from the day he was sworn in to have the prime minister
say 'no' to LNG tankers officially,?, Craig said late last week.
He says that when that period expires on April 7 the
town and opponents of the LNG proposals in New Brunswick
and Maine will ratchet up pressure through letter-writing
campaigns, news conferences and public meetings.
Craig said that both Harper and local MP Greg Thomp-
son, Minister of Veterans'Affairs, are on record as opposing
LNG developments on Passamaquoddy Bay between New
Brunswick and Maine.
