By BRUCE COLLIER
A nearly-full house
turned up at the DeFuniak
Springs Civic Center on Nov.
30 for "Supper with Us," a
meet-and-eat sponsored by
DeFuniak Springs City Mar-
shal Mike Adkinson and the
DeFuniak Springs Police De-
partment (DFSPD).
All members of the public
were invited for a free meal
of soup, sandwiches, and
doughnuts, followed by a
presentation by Adkinson,
who also took questions.
"I see this as a kind. of
shareholders' meeting," said
Adkinson, who began the
presentation by reflecting
back on the past year. "We've
done some things right and
some things wrong," he said,
"but the question is, are we
moving in the right direc-
tion?"
Praising the department,
Adkinson called the
audience's attention to some
of the "unique services" of-
fered by DFSPD, including
checking on elderly or ill citi-
zens and unlocking cars.
He also expressed pride in

the DFSPD's new policy
manual, which he hopes will
lead to even better service
and accountability through
established department pro-
cedures.
"Customer service is most
important," he said, adding
that funding is only one of
several factors in moving a
department forward.

SPRINGS MAYOR HAROLD CARPENTER (r) welcome military spouses from Eglin
Force Base on Military Spouses Day in the city and Walton County.



City, county declare


"Military Spouses Day"


By BRUCE COLLIER
The City of DeFuniak
Springs, along with the Wal-
ton County Board of Com-
missioners (BCC) jointly pro-
claimed Dec. 5, 2006 to be
"Military Spouses Day" in
Walton County.
Mayor Harold Carpenter
was joined by Commissioner
Kenneth Pridgen in a sign-
ing ceremony held at DeFu-
niak Springs City Hall.
DeFuniak City Manager
Kim Presnell joined both of-


ficials in welcoming a
busload of spouses of Eglin
Air Force Bade military per-
sonnel, who assembled in the
city council meeting room for
the signing of the two proc-
lamations.
The proclamation reads,
in part, "...the Eglin Air
Force Base officers and se-
nior enlisted spouses play an
important role filling the void
left by the deployment of per-
sonnel by looking out for the
welfare of officers and en-


listed deployed spouses ,and
raising funds for charitable
organizations...be it resolved
that [the city and county]
hereby declares December 5,
2006 as Military Spouses
Day in Walton County."
The proclamations wel-
come the spouses to Walton
County and DeFuniak
Springs, respectively. The
city proclamation expresses
the hope that "this will be the
beginning of many visits to
the city in the future."

NOISY DEMO, as WCSO deputies fire on the pistol range at new facility.


Sheriff opens, new



firing range north



of DeFuniak Springs


ug-' By BRUCE COLLIER
mu- Walton County Sheriff's
Office (WCSO) has opened a
of newly-constructed firing
I to range, located near the site
uc of the new county jail facil-
ity, north of DeFuniak
Springs.
Sheriff Ralph Johnson, Lt.
Dennis Ward, public informa-
tion officer Lt. Bryan Maule,
and several instructors and
deputies met with"members
of the media to tour and dem-
onstrate the range.
The range contains 25
short-range firing points for
pistol shooting and two long-
range points for rifle practice.
The facility also contains
a classroom, weapons clean-
ing room, and a "shoot
house." The latter is a kind
of operating theater for train-
ing scenarios. The shoot
house can be fitted to re-
semble a private residence
for domestic violence situa-
tions, a hideout fdr fugitives,
a hostage holding area, and
other scenarios.
Maule said that deputies
will be given "no notice"
ike training in this facility. This
means that at any given time
on shift, a deputy can be or-
dered to report to the range.
He or she is briefed on a situ-
ation, then sent into the
shoot house to deal with it,
under realistic conditions
. ', and under the supervision of
a certified instructor.
The house is part of the
WCSO's effort to comply with
court-mandated require-
ments that officers get "rel-
evant,; recent, and realistic"
training for situations in-
volving the potential use of
deadly force.
Members of the the media
were invited to fire two
AK rounds each from a variety of
Air pistols, including Glock,
Beretta, Colt and Smith &
Wesson, at silhouette targets
on the range. Deputies' also,
demonstrated pistol shoot-

EDITORIAL COMMENT


An ill wind blows no good


By RON KELLEY
Jimmy Stewart's always been one of my favorite actors.
I'n 1939, he starred in a great movie called "Mr. Smith Goes
To Washington." It's about an honest, likable fellow that gets
elected to the U.S. Senate and are you si I I ng down? doesn't
forget his principles or turn his back on ethics or honesty.
In one scene, Stewart's character, Sen. Smith, says, "Take
a look at this country through (Lady Liberty's) eyes if you
really want to see something. And you won't just see scen-
ery; you'll see the whole parade of what Man's carved, out for
himself, after centuries of Figlitinm Fighting for something
better than just jungle law, fighting so's he can stand on his
own two feet, free and decent, like he was created, no matter
what his race, color, or creed. That's what you'd see. There's
no place out there for graft, or greed, or lies, or compromise
with human liberties. Great principles don't get lost once
they come to light. They're right here; you just have to see
them again!"
I know. You're thinking'that only happens in the movies.'
Usually, you'd be right. There aren't too many "Mr. Smith's"
in Washington or Tallahassee either, for that matter, but some



Editor,
Why was there such a victory for Democrats? That's easy,
the president. He ruled as though Congress did not exist.
He self-interpreted the Constitution to suit his ends or com-
pletely ignored it. Not that its existence has made much dif-
ference in many years. His arrogance and brass also rubbed
a lot of people and nations the wrong way, and it requires a
lot of audacity to state: "You are with us or with the terror-
ist." What rot, and he has done things that most former presi-
dents hardly thought about.
But before we get too carried away, let us not forget the
sins of the winners the Democrats. How many of you re-
member Ruby Ridge, and the most heroines of all, was Janet
Reno? Dozens of people, many children, were burned to death
near Waco by an agency of the federal government. Natu-
rally the government put forth many claims and reasons as
justification, including that the religious sect intentionally
set the fire and burned themselves and their children. It
was a case of the federal government being power drunk. A
state in which it stays a good deal of the time.
Reasonably good government depends on the character of
the people in the parties and in offices, character being a
scarce commodity these days. Most of us ordinary peasants
have little to go on other than the public statements of those
offices. Most such statements are woefully slanted, which
makes it only partly true at best, and partly true isn't good
enough.
I fervently hope the next two years will be an era of good
government and sees the end of the wars in Iraq and Af-
ghanistan, and less of an attitude that a bellicone and threat-*
ening military is the solution of differences with other na-
tions. Are all the people we are killing in Afghanistan ter-
rorists or just mountain people who are trying to defend
themselves and their property against an armed fought in-
vader? The news media has made Talaban and terrorist syn-
onymous. Aren't the Taliban the group or sect who wiped
out the opium fields and drug trade before the American
invasion?
Not long ago, Senator Bill Frist went to Afghanistan and
came up with a good idea on his return. On CNN, Tuesday,
Oct. 3, he is reported to have suggested the Taliban be
brought into the government of Afghanistan as a move to-
ward ending the fighting there. But apparently his sugges-
tion was completely ignored. The Taliban are composed of
tribalized people, largely isolated, independent, and self-suf-
ficient. Maybe their inclusion in the government would tend
to hold down the corruption in Kobul.

are trying.
Several months ago, Gov. Bush directed state legisla-
tors to find a way to get a handle on the runaway insur-
ance crisis here in Florida. Gov. Bush demanded that fi-
nal recommendations be on his desk before Christmas and
while everyone was running for office, the talk continued
to be tough. After the election, though, the talk softened to
the consistency of a wet noodle.
So far, the recommendations bear no resemblance to
the sweeping promises made early on. Only two things
are clear so far. That is, the panel's recommendations will
not call for lower rates, nor restrict people from continu-
ing to build and rebuild in the riskiest areas of the state -
and then making the rest of us pay for their bad decision.
Doesn't sound much like insurance reform to me.
However, in this overwhelming atmosphere of greed,
corruption and business-as-usual politics, two or three fel-
lows at least stood up and told some clear, unvarnished,
unpopular truths.
Representative Don Brown said that some areas (coastal
areas and flood zones) "are so dangerous, the risk of dev-
astation is so certain, that no one in Florida should be
asked to. subsidize putting assets to risk in those areas."
He also praised Allstate and State Farm for "loaning"
money to their Florida companies and stated that Florida
insurance companies have lost billions.
In response, Rep. Julio Robaina, of Miami, questioned
the statement that insurers have lost $13 billion in Florida
since 1992. He said the Florida subsidiaries of national
companies have sent their profits off to their home offices,
making any Florida losses seem catastrophic. "What hap-
pened to the 30 years of profits before (Hurricane) An-
drew?" he asked.
In the meantime, while the legislators fiddle, Rome still
burns. Home insurance premiums continue to rise at an
astronomical rate. At last count, 34 companies have double-
digit rate hikes pending before the state Office. of Insur-
ance Regulation. Of those, 16 have already started col-
lecting the higher premiums, even though their requests
have not yet been approved.



Editor,
On Nov. 20, The Amvets Ladies Auxiliary Post 178 put
together eight Thanksgiving baskets to give to the needy.
The ladies all worked hard and donated so much to make
sure the Post did its best to help all we could. We wish to
say thank-you to everyone else who helped.

Editor,
The week prior to the November 7 general election,
George Bush stated unequivocally to the national news
media, and therefore to the citizens of this country, that
he was determined to keep Donald Rumsfeld s defense
secretary, and that in fact Rumsfeld was doing a "fantas-
tic" job. The day after the election Bush fired Rumsfeld
and introduced a new defense secretary.'
I find it highly ironic that after being re-elected to office
by attacking his opponent as a "flip flopper" President Bush
pulls one of the biggest flip flops of all time. His flip flop,
however, was intended to mislead the public as President
Bush himself later admitted without apology.
How can the public have any trust or confidence in pub-.
lic pronouncements of this administration if they can flip
flop from one week to the next on matters of such national
importance?

Editor,
In early November, I was selected as the 2007 Miss War
Whoop. In addition to being totally shocked that. I received
this great honor, I realized God had presented me with an
opportunity to make a difference in some part of this world
during my year as Miss War Whoop.
As a member of a U.S. Army National Guard family, I
received information about Operation Appreciation and
chose to make this my first fundraising project. When
American soldiers are wounded in Afghanistan,.Iraq, Ku-
wait or other parts of the Euro-Asian continent, they are
transported to Landstuhl Military Medical Center in Ger-
many to receive medical treatment and to recuperate (of-
ten for months) before returning home to the United States.
Major Douglas Harvey and MSG George Russell, who are
stationed at Landstuhl Medical Center, have requested
for Americans from each state to send t-shirts, sweatshirts,
blankets, baseball caps, and backpacks to be given to
wounded soldiers from the same state. These items can
represent a favorite sports team from that state or just
advertise that state itself.
To show these soldiers how members of our community
appreciate their personal sacrifices, I have made arrange-
ments to purchase t-shirts for $5, sweatshirts for $11, and
blankets for $16. These items will all display the "You Rank
#1 with Walton County, Florida" Operation Appreciation
logo created for this project and will have an attached let-
ter of appreciation from all of the community members
who participated in this project. I am hoping that my
friends in the community will help make this project a
success.
If you have other questions, please contact me at 892-
9747, 687-9747 or email me at teribull5@yahoo.com. You
may drop off new sweatshirts or t-shirts with sports team
logos such as Florida Gators or Miami Dolphins or checks
made out to Operation Appreciation at TV 24. I am hop-
ing to ship all items in late December 2006. Thank you for
supporting this worthy cause and have a blessed Christ-
mas season.

I have something truly awesome to share with you today!
Late yesterday afternoon, a young couple with hiking back-
packs on their backs found their way to CHELCO. They found
out about our mission to provide gifts for needy children, thanks
to Pam Campbell at Walton County Chamber of Commerce.
(Thank you, Pam, for your part in this blessing.)
Chris and Rachel Embler, the young couple who are walk-
ing in faith, came with the intention of sharing God's love by
making a donation to the CHELCO for children's fund, They
stayed and talked of all that God is showing them and of how
he has blessed them in this journey that they are on. After
they left, we opened the envelope that they had given us and
found $170!
Please go to the website below and read about their jour-
ney. I have also put their email addresses below if you feel led
to contact them about the incredible financial gift that they
gave for the children and the incredible spiritual gift that they
share every day on their journey.

On November 24, 2006,1 I took a family member to the emer-
gency room at Healthmark Regional Hospital. I arrived there
at approximately 10:15 a.m. and being in a hurry, I neglected
to lock my vehicle. I returned to my vehicle around 2:30 p.m.
and started home, on the way discovering that an electronic
item had been taken.
I called the hospital and was advised that some other people
had similar complaints. I then called the Walton County
Sheriff's Department and reported the theft. I was very pleased
wvhenleputy J. Klawitter arrived in a matter of minutes, made
a, report and attempted to lift finger prints. 1: understand
"Deputy B: Hicks' had attempted to apprehend the suspects at
the hospital.
On Monday, November 27, I was contacted by Investigator
J. Lorenz and informed that my missing equipment was possi-
bly located in Andalusia, Alabama, where Walton's Deputy J.
Mock assisted the Alabama State Trooper in apprehending the
suspects. Mr. Lorenz took an affidavit from me and obtained
the serial number. While he was still at my workplace, he in-
formed me that the serial number was a match and he would
be going to Alabama to pick it up and he returned it to me on
November 28th.
I would like to personally and publicly express my heart-
felt thanks to Sheriff Johnson, Deputy Hicks, Deputy Klawitter,
Deputy J. Mock and Investigator Lorenz for their profession-
alism and persistence in this matter.

My brother (Norm) was traveling on 1-10 near DeFuniak
Springs while moving from Texas to Florida, pulling a U-haul
trailer with a Nissan Pathfinder. A vehicle passed him and
caused air turbulence and he lost control of the vehicle, rolling
three times before smashing into a tree. His sister-in-law was
following him and got Norm and his dog, Ninja, (who had been
strapped into a harness) out of the car. Norm was bruised, sore
and had a cracked rib, but survived probably because he was
wearing a seat belt. Ninja ran off
Several people traveled from central Florida to look for Ninja,
with no luck. We don't know if he is okay, heading back to Texas,
or where. Animal Control was notified, but Ninja has not'
shown up. People looking for him had to .return to work and
home.
Knowing there are many shelters and people who will be
kind to a stray that may be injured, I implore anyone who
comes across Ninja to call the cell phone number on his collar.
If he has lost his collar somehow, please email to
ninja@nebcs.com.
There is a photo of Ninja attached. He is black and Lab/
chow mix. He has a pink scar on his lower left lip near the
back.
Thank you, in advance, for your consideration of this story
and helping spread the safety aspect for others, as well as, the
search for our friend, Ninja.

UNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 30,2006
Where is Mr. Smith when you need him? Well, he may be a
her.
Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink drew a line in the sand
when she said, "It can't be a one-way street any longer."
According to a story in the Tallahassee Democrat, Sink
"called on the House to undo a provision it put in a bill that
will result in large rate increases this March for Floridians
insured by Citizens Property Insurance. The provision requires
the state-run insurer to charge rates as high as if it had bought
private backup coverage, even though it does not. 'Folks, we
are in a situation where if the rate increases as proposed we
are going to destroy our economy,' Sink said. 'That provision
needs to be repealed.'"'
The important thing to remember here is that the rest of us
who have house insurance with other companies are charged
an extra assessment on our own bills to help pay for Citizens'
losses. Citizens is the insurer-of-last-resort for people who build
right on the coast and are unable to get insurance from regu-
lar companies.
Sink also plans to end assessments on consumer's bills to
subsidize Citizens Insurance.
If she keeps talking tough like this, "Ms. Smith" may find
herself going to Washington, too.

"We can't think of DeFu-

20 years ago," he said, adding
that he is "working hard" to

Other items of concern
were prevention of drug use

schools. "The war on drugs

Traffic, speeding, stop
signs, and lights were on the
minds of many, to a degree
that Adkinson later said was
remarkable. Though he like-
wise pledged that the law
would be enforced, he added
that planners need to be
thinking now of alternate
routes and other future con-
cerns. .. .- .
"This is not your

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, DECEMBER 07, 2006


Women's services are

taking form at Sacred Heart


Construction crews and
design plans are a regular
sight right now.at Sacred
Heart Hospital on the Emer-
ald Coast as comprehensive
women's services begin to
take form. The community's
overwhelming support of a $5
million capital campaign last
year made the Women's Ser-
vices expansion possible.
The most visible project
from the road is the Women's
Center, which will offer fam-
ily-centered labor and deliv-
ery services. The Women's
Center will house four spa-
cious, private labor-delivery-
recovery suites, one private
labor-delivery-recovery-post-
partum suite, six private
post-partum suites, a new-
born nursery, education
classrooms, a family waiting
area and additional support
services.
The 22,000-square-foot
Women's Center will be lo-
cated on the second floor of
the hospital and will boast a
private entrance and circular
drive, which will be located
just to the west of the main
entrance of the hospital.
The first floor of the expan-
sion will be a 25,000-square-
foot shell space for the future


expansion of service lines.
The hospital plans to de-
liver the first baby in Sep-


tember 2007.
Construction crews are
also working on the north


"Women are the heart of
the community, and this ex-
pansion is a .real tribute to
the community's support,
leadership and vision to con-
tinually improve access to
high quality, compassionate
healthcare," said Roger Hall,


side of the hospital, which
will be the new home for
women's diagnostic and im-
aging services.
In appreciation of a gener-
ous $1 million donation, the
center will be named in honor
of Rick and Elaine Olson and
family. The Olson Women's
SDiagnostic Center will conve-
; niently centralize all screen-
. ing and diagnostic exams for
mammography, stereotactic
breast biopsy, ultrasound
and bone density scans.
The center will be located
inside the hospital between
the radiology department
and the emergency depart-
ment in a 4,000 square foot
shell space that was built
when the hospital expanded
emergency services in 2004.
The Olson Women's Diag-
nostic Center is scheduled to
open in February 2007.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, DECEMBER 7, 2006


'AGE 14-A


Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services Commis-
sioner Charles H. Bronson
has announced that Florida
has been allocated $149,705
in federal funding to imple-
ment a Livestock Assistance
Grant Program. The fund-
ing will assist agricultural
producers in their recovery
from last spring and sum-
mer's drought.
"Our department is pleased
to work with UI'SID in this
program to help our produc-
ers recover from what we
did not receive last -prin:
and summer--rain," Bronson
said, "Mn of our animal
producers were faced with
.i:.in. pastures normally
used to produce hay for their
winter .Lq'drii: programs or


purchasing hay and feed to
keep animals in good health
or send them to market."
USDA identified eight
Florida counties for the pro-
gram, using the U.S. Drought
Monitors from March 7 to
August 31, 2006, as the
basis for the selection. Any
counties that were classi-
fied as being in D-3 or D-4
drought during that time-
frame were included. The
counties include Bay, Escam-
bia, Holmes, Jackson, Oka-
loosa, Santa Rosa, Walton,
and Washington. Commer-
cial farmers or ranchers with
beef cattle, farmed bison,
dairy cattle, sheep, or goats
that suffered forage produc-
tion losses are eligible for
assistance.


To receive funding, eli-
gible producers will need to
complete a self-certification
application that provides the
maximum number of eligi-
ble livestock that were on
site between March 7 and
August 31, 2006. This appli-
cation also has a section
that requires producers to
estimate livestock-related
expenses incurred because
of decreased forage supplies
related to the 2006 drought.
These expenses could
include loss of forage pro-
duction, costs of supplemen-
tal feed, cost of relocating
cattle to new feed sources,
increased feed transporta-
tion costs, and emergency
water supply needs. Produc-
ers will not receive more


Organization receives excellence award


An organization that
works to promote financial
literacy among youth in Flor-
ida has awarded the Depart-
ment of Financial Services
iDFS its President's Flor-
ida JumpStart for Personal
Financial Literacy Excel-
lence Award. The award
recognizes the department's
"Your Money, Your Life" out-
reach program and Chief
Financial Officer Tom Galla-
gher's successful effort this
year to win legislative
approval to create a Finan-
cial Literacy Council.
"The lives of all Florid-
ians are better when our
families and businesses are
financially strong," said Gal-
lagher, who also oversees
the DFS. "I appreciate the
Florida JumpStart Coalition
for recognizing this depart-
ment's efforts, and I applaud
them as well for their hard
work to help young people
have a brighter economic
future."
"We truly appreciate and
value the partnership Flor-
ida JumpStart has with the
Department of Financial Ser-
vices and for CFO Galla-
gher's support of financial


literacy efforts," said
Rosanna Jacobsen, president
of Florida JumpStart.
Florida JumpStart is a
non-profit organization com-
posed of individuals,
for-profit and non-profit orga-
nizations, government agen-
cies, and community and
faith-based groups to pro-
mote personal financial lit-
eracy, with emphasis on
kindergarten through young
adults.
"Your Money, Your Life"
is a statewide public edu-
cation initiative Gallagher
launched in 2004 in coop-
eration with the financial
services industry and con-
sumer groups. Building on
its success, Gallagher ear-
lier this year pushed for and
got approval from the Legis-
lature to create a Financial
Literacy Council. The coun-
cil, scheduled to be named in
early 2007, will serve as a
resource for consumers and
small businesses on finan-
cial issues. Gallagher said he
proposed creating the coun-
cil after a Mason-Dixon poll
showed too many Floridians
are in a precarious financial
condition, with one-third of


surveyed Floridians having
more debt than savings and
nearly half not saving enough
to retire.
The council will be com-
posed of nine members,
headed by the state's chief
financial officer, and is tasked
with studying the financial
problems that affect consum-
ers, particularly small busi-
nesses, young people and
seniors. It will also be
charged with creating a cen-
tral, comprehensive state
resource for the public to
provide financial information
on savings, loans, investment
products, managing debt and
planning for college expenses
and retirement.
"The Financial Literacy
Council will serve as central
resource and clearinghouse
for families and small busi-
nesses to obtain the informa-
tion and resources they need
to make informed financial
decisions,," Gallagher said.

gram, visit www.yourmoney-

Producers must complete

Services by 5 p.m. January

by that date. Applications

By RON KELLEY

For most people, music is
such an integral part of life
that it would be difficult to
imagine life without it. Con-
sider a sky without a sunrise,
a rose without a scent, a child
without a smile that's a life
with music.
Songs have even been writ-
ten about the effect of such a
loss. Billy Rose, Edward Ilescu
and Vincent Youmans wrote
"Without a song the day would
never end. Without a song the
road would never bend. When
things go wrong, a man ain't
got a friend, without a song."
In some cases, musical talent
is inherited or simply "in one's
blood" to the point that it can't
be denied. For others, it's more
a journey born of desire to play
an instrument and do it well.
For such a person, a seed must
be planted and then nurtured
if it is to grow.
At a DeFuniak Springs mu-
sic store, that's exactly what
they do plant the seeds. Ac-
cording to Angie Willoughby,
store manager for Dave's Mu-
sic, music lessons are a big part
of what they do.
"We have a wonderful crew
of music instructors for guitar,
piano and voice," she said. "As
far as I know, we are the only
music store in Walton County
and although most of our busi-
ness comes from the sale of in-
struments and accessories, the
music lesson are very impor-
tant to this community."
It's a small store and lesson
often.take place just a few feet
apart. With eight rotating in-
structors providing multiple
lessons on any given day, the
store sounds like s small or-
chestra pit where musicians
are warming up before the
symphony.
The cacophony is music to
Willouby's ears. "I've gotten
used to the noise and it's great
to see them learn and to see
their faces when they master
a difficult chord."
Learning to play an instru-
ment is hard work and it takes
determination. Guitar virtuoso
Chet Atkins once said, "It takes
a lot of devotion and work, or
maybe I should say play, be-
cause if you love it, that's what
it amounts to. I haven't found
any shortcuts, and I've been
looking for a long time."
These music students have
just begun and they are find-
ing no shortcuts either. The
students recently attended a
recital, held at Concerned
Christian Church, just west of
DeFuniak.
Both students and instruc-
tors played. Although most
were nervous at first, and some
students refused to perform at
the recital, for those who did,
it was the first step down a long
but satisfying path.
The melodies ranged from
gospel standards like "Amaz-
ing Grace" and "When the
Saints Go Marching In," to
American standards like "Oh,
Susannah" and "Old
MacDonald." There were rock
tunes, too, like "Brain Dam-
age" and "Knockin' On
Heaven's Door." There were
patriotic songs, Christmas and
classical melodies on the pro-
gram, too. In short, nearly ev-
ery kind of popular music for

Justin Sullivan and Cody Knapp. Angie said they are thinking of adding additional
voice and percussion lessons soon.
Is learning to play easy? No. Is is hard? Well, students should remember the words
of J.S. Bach, who said,'"'It's easy to play any musical instrument: all you have to do is
touch the right key at the right time and the instrument will play itself."

Friendship H-louse to hold Open House


By ROBIN NEWTON
The seed planted by the
Pilot and Anchor Clubs is be-
ginning to grow.
The Friendship House and
Brain Disorder Support
Foundation invites everyone
to come out and see the
progress at the Open House
during the week of Dec. 10.
Hours will be Monday, 10
a.m.-2 p.m., Tuesday and
Wednesday, 2 p.m.-7 p.m., and
Friday, 10 a.m. 2 p.m. A
powerpoint presentation ex-
plaining the Friendship
House will be shown and re-
freshments will be served.
Currently, the Friendship
House offers information on
all areas of brain disorders.
Brain disorders like
Alzheimer's and disorders
resulting from head injuries


are some of the more well-
known types, but the Friend-
ship House also addresses
Post Traumatic Stress Disor-
der, Restless Leg Syndrome,
panic attacks, and depres-
sion, among others.
The men's support group
will resume after the holidays
and a new women's group will
begin after the first of the
year. Both groups deal with
depression, which is not only
a brain disorder itself, but can
also be a result of a physical
problem.
The Friendship House val-
ues the volunteers that give
freely of their time and en-
ergy. Bill Bishop is a perma-
nent fixture, spending count-
less hours in front of the com-
puter, keeping everything up-
to-date and in order. Mem-
bers of Walton High's Anchor


Club sign up for a class that
consists of volunteer time at
the Friendship House.
Amanda Roughton and club
president Kathleen Foy are
getting everything ready to
make the Open House a huge
success.
The ultimate goal of the
Friendship House is to pro-
vide an adult day-care setting
for victims of brain disorders.
To realize this remarkable
goal, the community needs to
be involved. The Open House
will provide the perfect set-
ting to educate those inter-
ested in seeing this goal come
to fruition:
Everyone is urged to mark
their calendars and visit the


Friendship House during
Open House next week. Fam-
ily and friends of those with
brain disorders are encour-
aged to come out and learn
more about the services of-
fered and the Friendship
House itself.
Parents, children, people
affected by brain disorders,
and those just interested in
the program are welcome.
The Friendship House is
located at 353 Juniper Lake
Road. For more information,
call 892-0565 or 892-5687.

House and more information
can be found on the website,

"Stockings for Soldiers" project


Walton High School Anchor
Club recently received a sur-
prising phone call from Iraq
thanking them for the
"Stockings for Soldiers."
In early November, Anchor


members filled homemade
camouflage Christmas stock-
ings with personal care
items, books, games, puzzles,
cards, and sent them on their
way to Marines who would
not be home for the holiday


Walton High students try out parenting


The responsibilities of
parenting a dependent, help-
less human being, who
doesn't come with an owner's
manual, can be overwhelm-
ing when one doesn't know
what to expect. However,
knowledge and experiences
offered in Walton High's
Child Development Class are
designed to provide guidance
to you.g persons preparing
for .their adult lives and fu-
ture families.
One amazing feature this
year is the new simulated in-
fant called "Baby Think It
Over". This $500 educational
tool resembles a baby in ap-
pearance, personality and
physical needs. Its highly ad-
vanced computer technology
provides a 24-hour experi-
ence into the world of
parenting as the baby must
be fed, diaper-changed, and
cuddled. The accompanying
bracelet insures that the as-
signed "parent" must provide
a majority of the care while
the system records how re-
sponsive and devoted that
parent was in meting the
baby's needs.
Ms. Cheryl Sallee, the Child
Development instructor, said,
"Students learn very quickly
that being a parent is a


season.
Each year members try to
pick a military unit that has
a direct relationship with
someone from the club.
Lance Corporal James
Casey's unit was chosen as
the beneficiary of the "Stock-
ings for Soldiers." project. He
is a Walton High School
alumni and close friend of a
Anchor member, Sassy
Bogart.
Casey contacted Johnnie
Kay Ealum, Anchor Advisor,
to make sure that she ex-
pressed his unit's sincere


gratitude for the love and
care that went into each
stocking.. Casey stated, "It
was a nice reminder that
people are thinking of us
while we are away from
home during the holidays."
This annual project is one
of the many ways that Wal-
ton High School honors the
nation's military.
The Anchor Club ex-
pressed appreciation to an
Anchor member, Devin
Jones, .and her mother,
Neica, for designing the
stockings for the soldiers.

Be A Hero ,
'y Dr. Charles
Satterwhite
Pastor, reportt
UMC


In 2 Kings 7:9, we see a picture of the life-or-death mis-
sion God has entrusted to each of us.
It's the story of four lepers who eked out a life outside
the walls of their city. They were not allowed in the city
because of leprosy. The enemy army besieged their city,
nearly starving them into surrender, and there was no food
to sustain them.
Each morning, they could hear the anguished cries of
mothers in the city whose child had starved to death dur-
ing the night. In desperation, they to walked into the en-
emy camp to surrender, and to their amazement, they found
the enemy camp deserted. God had miraculously fright-
ened them into retreat. So the lepers went from tent to
tent, gorging themselves with food.
Finally, they became aware of their mission. They
said to each other, "We're not doing right. This is a day of
good news and we are keeping it to ourselves ... Let's go at
once and report this...' They did, and they saved many lives.
If you have Jesus,carry the good news, because lives
around you depend on you.
. Are you keeping it to yourself? Resist fear, or what-
ever is keeping you from telling the people you know about
Jesus. Is your cowardice and pride worth letting them live
and die without knowing their only hope?
God has divinely prepared you to be the kind of per-
son they'll listen to. Your biography is your credentials,
and God has divinely positioned you to help the people
you know be in heaven with you. Freely you have received,
freely give.
We invite you to welcome in the advent season this
Sunday at 9 a.m., and in our 10 a.m. service we will have
Communion, we do not believe in closed Communion
come, be renewed through this wonderful act of obedience.


service, we have grown into a reliable resource your family
can depend on. Rooted in our traditions, we stay firmly
connected to the families we serve and the care we provide.
We continue serving all faiths and all families in the only
way we know how-hv staying true to our heritage.

Tucker

signs

with

Stetson

University

By PATRICK CASEY
Walton High School senior
Jesse Tucker has signed a
scholarship to play for
Stetson University in Deland
in the sport of softball.
Tucker, who played shortstop
for Walton softball coach
Stan Bosenberg last season
as a junior, played on the
Traveling Eagles summer
softball team and attracted
attention by numerous col-
lege coaches.
"Summer ball really
helped me get out there and
get noticed," Tucker said at
her signing day ceremony.
"It's nice to have my scholar-
ship lined up where I can still
concentrate on my senior
year."
Tucker is a three-sport
athlete at Walton as she has
competed in volleyball, bas-
ketball and softball since her
freshman season. She hit
.360 for Walton last season
and .358 during summer
league ball. Tucker, a right-
handed batter, played
centerfield and second base
during the summer and hit
leadoff.
"I am looking forward to
having her for another sea-
son," Stan Bosenberg com-
mented at the ceremony.
"She is versatile, a solid hit-
ter and fielder, and works
hard. I hope she can help us


WALTON'S JESSE TUCKER signed a scholarship to play
softball at Stetson University in the fall of 2007. Jesse was
accompanied by her parents, Beth and Martin Tucker at the


ceremony.

not only make the playoffs
again this year, but win the
district."
Tucker is believed to be
the first fast-pitch softball
player at Walton to sign with
a Division I school. "I had a
lot of help, Dennis Roesle, the
area director for the National
Scouting Report, and both
Barry Erickson and Larry
Timmons, my travel coaches
for Florida eXtreme 18-U.
They helped improve my
skills and promoted me for
the past year. They have had
the most influence in my re-
cruiting process. I committed
to Stetson on November 11


and signed on November 13,
2006."
Stetson finished the 2006
season with a 45-16 record
under Frank Griffin, who has
coached the squad for ten
seasons. The Hatters com-
pete in the Atlantic Sun Con-
ference and have several
other players from the
Florida Panhandle on their
roster. Junior Amy Peters of
Niceville, freshman Nicole
Peltz of Navarre and junior
Blythe Golden of Marianna
all are listed on the 2007 ros-
ter for the squad and should
be at the school when Tucker
arrives in the fall of 2007.


PdL rallies for 56-48 win


By PATRICK CASEY
Ponce de Leon outscored
Paxton 14-4:.in the third
quarter as they rallied from
a halftime deficit to pull out
a 56-48 win over the Bobcats.

Cody Carroll scored 16
points and Thomas Bowden
hit three 3-pointers as the
Pirates improved .to 3-0 on
the season with the home vic-
tory.
Paxton got off to a good
start, leading 27-23 at half-
time behind solid team play
as six different Bobcats
scored in the first half of com-
petition.
PDL rallied with solid re-
bounding as Dylan Skinner
pulled down 10 rebounds to
go with his 10 points in the
comeback effort.
Blake Zessin led Paxton
with 14 points while Chase
Russell chipped in 12 in the
losing effort. Paxton (2-1)
was doomed by poor shooting
as they missed 44 shots on
the night and second half
turnovers limited their op-
portunities.

"I let them know at half-
time that we had to do better
in the second half," PDL
coach Stacey Stafford com-
mented after the game. "We
played with more energy and
made some key shots from
outside in the second half.
Paxton played hard and we'll
have to get better by the time
we go play them up at their
place."
"Our young ball-handlers
struggled in the second half,
and we took some shots that
usually go in, but didn't,"
Paxton coach Jeff Bradley
said after the game. "Their
quick and physical and we're
still working on moving the
ball around against pres-
sure."
Game Notes: PDL won
their sixth in a row over the
Paxton boys. Paxton's last
win against PDL occurred on
January 22, 2002, as they
beat the Pirates in PDL 40-
38. Paxton won the junior
varsity contest 41-36. Jeff
Bradley is in his ninth sea-
son as head coach and has
compiled a record of 140-84
at the school. Stacey Stafford
is in his third season at PDL
and owns a record of 31-27
with a trip to the region final
in his first season. PDL re-
turned all but one senior
from last year's 7-18 squad.


PDL holds a 14-7 series ad-
vantage against the Bobcats


dating back to the 1992-93
season.

Rocky Bayou's Tyler
Huisken banked in a shot
with two seconds left to send
the game to overtime, then
scored three of the Knights'
five points in the extra frame
from the free throw line to
earn the win for the visiting
team.
Freeport rallied from a 30-
26 third quarter deficit to
take the lead late in the con-
test behind Jamey Goddin's
18 points only to see Rocky
Bayou respond with the
game-tying basket.
Huisken, a 6-9 center,
scored 20 points while Lance
Williams added 16: Rocky
Bayou won the contest de-
spite hitting only 8-of-24
shots from the free throw
line.
Freeport(1-1) struggled
with the squad's shooting as
the Bulldogs hit only 16-of-
70 shots from the floor in the
contest. The Bulldogs forced
23 turnovers, but had trouble
capitalizing on the offensive


end. Aaron Knight added 10
points before fouling out of
the contest in the fourth
quarter and Devon Grant
added eight points for the
Bulldogs.
Team Notes: Freeport
owns a 7-6 record against
Rocky Bayou since 1992-93.


Freeport won the junior var-
sity contest 36-23. Freeport
will travel to Rocky Bayou for
the rematch on January 29.
Freeport dropped their first
road contest 24 hours later on
Friday as Altha ran past the
Bulldogs 74-44 to drop Free-
port to 1-2.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, DECEMBER 07, 2006


Former NFL star speaks at Walton Youth Athletics Banquet


Walton Youth Athletics re-
cently hosted their 2006
Awards Banquet at the Wal-
ton Fairgrounds. In addition
to presenting trophies to all
cheerleaders and football
players in the league, Super
Bowl Champion medallions
were presented to the 7-8-


year-old Peewee cheerleaders
and football team members
who captured an undefeated
season in the Panhandle
Football League.

Terrell Williams, a former
football player with the Wal-
ton Youth Athletics and a re-


cent Walton Middle School
Warrior football team mem-
ber, was inducted as the first
member of the new WYA Hall
of Fame.
The highlight of the
evening was the guest ap-
pearance of Kevin Greene, a
former NFL linebacker for
the Los Angelos Rams, Pitts-
burgh Steelers, San Francisco
49ers, and Carolina Panthers.
Greene was the 1996 NFC
Linebacker of the Year, recipi-
ent of the 1996 George Halas
Defensive Player of the Year
Award, and player in Super-
Bowl XXX, where the Pitts-
burgh Steelers succumbed to
the Dallas Cowboys. He set
an NFL record for five con-
secutive multi-sack games
and is ranked third all-time
player in fumble recoveries
for the NFL with 26.
Greene shared his raw en-
thusiasm and passion for the
game of football with the
young athletes of DeFuniak
Springs and encouraged
them to pursue their dreams.
He spoke about being a walk-
on for Auburn University and
the path of hard work and
determination that he had
traveled to capture his dream
of being a pro football player.


After sharing insider infor-
mation about NFL greats and
his own glory days, Kevin
Greene inspired the cheer-
leaders and football players
to pursue an education as one


of their dreams and to real-
ize the importance of academ-
ics as well as athletics.
Greene, who holds a degree
in criminal justice and served
as a captain in his Army Re-


serve unit at Fort Knox, left
behind a player card for ev-
ery young member of Walton
Youth Athletes and a re-
newed belief in themselves
and what they could achieve.


KEVIN GREENE takes a minute out to pose with some of the Peewee Cheerleaders at the
recent Walton Youth Awards banquet. These young ladies all cheered for the 7-8-year-old
Super Bowl Champion team this year.


FORMER NFL LINEBACKER, Kevin Greene, delivering
a few words of inspiration to the 6-12-year-old athletes at the
Walton Youth Athletic banquet.


Seminoles headed


to Emerald Bowl


By CHUCK HINSON
.. The bowl bid was extended
and the Seminoles took the
bait and acceptedftheir bid to
the 2007 Emerald Bowl in
San Francisco. The match-up
announced on Nov. 28 will
gave the Seminoles a chance
to have a winning record this
season and break the 6-6
record the Seminoles are
sporting now.
The bowl has also extended
the invitation to UCLA
whose record is 6-6 for the
season. UCLA, like Florida
State, had a dismal season.
With their loss this past
weekend to #2 USC, and de-
spite a close game against
Florida, FSU lost 21-14 in
the final quarter of the game,
both teams are almost equal
on both sides of the playing
field.
Bowl organizers feel both
can draw a crowd since
UCLA is just down the road
and Florida State is a good


traveling team. This is a
lesser bowl than what
Bowden and his boys are ac-
customed to, but reports are
saying they are just happy to
be able to qualify.
After UCLA's shocking
topple of No. 2 crosstown ri-
val USC, organizers are
pleased with the decision and
feel more assured of a large
attendance.
The game is scheduled for
Dec. 27 at the AT & T Park
in San Francisco, home of the
San Francisco Giants base-
ball team.
Florida State came back to
beat Virginia Tech last year
for the ACC title and then
traveled to Miami to take on
Joe Paterno and Penn State.
The Seminoles lost the game
26-23 in triple overtime.
Florida State will be mak-
ing their 36th bowl appear-

ance overall and their 25th
appearance in a row. Their
bowl record stands at 20-13-
2.


Football season


wraps up for 2006


By PATRICK CASEY
North Florida has always
been well represented on the
college gridiron, and that
continued in 2006 as many
area athletes saw playing
time in 2006.

Adam Dimichele, who
played baseball at Okaloosa-
Walton College the past two
years, wound up the starting
quarterback at Temple Uni-
versity in 2006. Dimichele
threw for 1,518 yards with 10
touchdown passes while toss-
ing 12 interceptions. The
redshirt sophomore suffered
through a 1-11 season with
the Owls.
Doug Morris, a 2002
graduate of Pensacola
Woodham High School, also
played at Temple as a defen-
sive end this season. Morris,
a senior, had 25 total tackles
and two quarterback sacks
for the Owls.
Freshman T.J. Williams
became a starting wide re-
ceiver at Michigan State this
season. Williams, who played
high school football at Talla-
hassee Leon, played in all 12
games for the Spartans and


had 25 receptions for 281
yards and three touchdowns.
Freshman Ashton
Henderson, who played high
school football at Tallahassee
Lincoln, made only two tack-
les as a reserve cornerback
for Michigan State this sea-
son, but he had a 33-yard
punt return for a touchdown
against Northwestern. Un-
fortunately for Williams and
Hendreson, Michigan State's
season fell apart after their
loss to Notre Dame as the
Spartans finished 4-8 in
2006.
Two players who played at
Jacksonville University
made a few plays during the
2006 regular season. Edrian
Rogers played in only four
games as a senior, making
two catches for 26 yards.
Rogers is from Tallahassee
and played at Florida High.
Dane Weathers, a Fort Wal-
ton Beach product, played in
eight games with 28 total
tackles as a linebacker for
the Dolphins. Weathers is a
redshirt sophomore. Jack-
sonville finished 4-6 in the
Pioneer Football League in
Division I-AA.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, DECEMBER 07, 2006


Florida Gators have stab for national title


Sports commentary
By CHUCK HINSON
After days of nail-biting,
name-calling and holding
their breath, the Florida
Gators (12-1) got their call
on Sunday night that they
would need to book their air-
line tickets to Glendale, AZ,
site of the naitonal title game
against No. 1-ranked Ohio
State on Jan. 8.
It was the surprising
coaches' poll and the BCS poll
that gave them the edge over
now No. 3-ranked Michigan,


which has settled for the
chance to play in the Rose
Bowl against the once No. 2
team in the nation, USC. The
Trojans had their chance to
make it to the big game, but
their shocking 13-9 loss to
unranked UCLA this past
Saturday (FSU will be fac-
ing UCLA in the Emerald
Bowl on Dec. 27) brought the
USC Trojans and their BCS
title hopes to a dark close.
Many from the Michigan
camp said that Florida head
football coach Urban Meyer


lobbied for days, even weeks
about going to Glendale to
fight for the title. Some mem-
bers of the Michigan Wolver-
ine pack have even said that
Meyer made uncalled-for re-
marks during his plea for the
Gators.
Florida will face the No. 1-
ranked Ohio State Buckeyes
in a match that may have
Ohio St. beating the Gators
by as many as 24 points. The
polls also tend to slide ,to-
wards the Buckeyes due to
their impressive wins.


But many sports writers,
coaches and even Ohio State
fans say it will be a much
closer battle. Florida has
faced three top 10 teams this
season and only fell to Au-
burn.
Ohio State has made the
same claim in respect to
strength of schedule, but
Michigan was the only top
10-ranked team they faced
and the Wolverines only lost
by less than a touchdown.
Florida is boasting one of
their best season records in
years and finished the post
season with a 38-28 SEC vic-


tory title win over Arkansas.
Many say that it was due to
the Gators finding their
groove, others say it was the
cool throwing hand and con-
trol of quarterback Chris
Leak and some bad errors by
Arkansas that gave the vic-
tory to the Gators.
The one team that took the
Gators to the mat this sea-
son was Auburn. The Tigers
got left out of the mix for the
national title chance, but
coming in at the No. 9 spot,
they will be making their
way to Dallas to take on the
Nebraska Cornhuskers for a


New Year's Day brawl in the
Lone Star State.
The only reason that the
Tigers are not fighting for the
title was due to their embar-
rassing loss to unranked
Georgia. The loss gave them
their 10-2 record.
Other area teams heading
to bowls include Miami in the
MPC Computer Bowl against
Nevada; Alabama takes on
Oklahoma St. in the Inde-
pendence Bowl and Troy
State, after winning their
conference title this past
weekend, travels to the New
Orleans Bowl to take on Rice.


DEAN SHAW ENDS THE SEASON with a fourth win at Southern Raceway dirt track in

Naylor Realty, Radio Shack, Southern Linc, and Shaw Rentals for their support.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, DECEMBER 07, 2006


MIKE ARMBRUSTER,
real estate broker ofDeFuniak
Springs, FL has been active in
an exercise program at Flex
Fitness in Florala, AL for over
4 months. He began working
out three weeks before Nick
and Lori Petrey opened the
center in September.
Mike has been under a doc-
tors care for high cholesterol,
high blood pressure and other
health related problems. On a
recent visit to his doctor, she
couldn't believe it when his
blood work and overall health
had drastically improved. She
said, according toArmbruster,
"What in the world have you
been doing?" His response
was, "I've joined a gym!" She
told him it was definitely
working and to keep up the
good work.
As a result, he was taken
off the cholesterol medication,
takes a lesser dose of blood
pressure medicine and feels
great with much more energy.
At this point, in the inter-
view, his friend, Mike
Honaker of Laurel Hill, FL,
quipped, "and all the girls are
chasing him..." Mike said,
"Don't quote me on that, but I
am single.

SWFD Fire Chief Hallman



announces resignation


By JEFFREY POWELL
South Walton Fire Chief/
Administrator Les Hallman
has announced his
resignation. After serving ten
years in his current position,
Hallman has accepted the
position of director of the
Florida Division of State Fire
Marshal in Tallahassee.

"It has been a wonderful
experience to see the district


grow under him," said South
Walton Fire District (SWFD)
Fire -Board Chairman
Maurice Gilbert. "This is a
great loss tQ see him go, but
we wish him well."
Hallman will remain with
the SWFD until sometime in
late January.
"This is not the kind of
situation where you give two
weeks' notice," Hallman said.
"I want to help the district


during this transitional
period."

Gilbert plans to
immediately establish a
three-person committee to
conduct a nationwide search
to replace Hallman. Gilbert
stressed that all qualified
persons, both internal and
external will be considered
for the position. "It is possible
that hundreds of people will


apply," Gilbert said.
In other business during
the December 4 regular
SWFD meeting was the
announcement of several,
promotions.

Mike Thomas has been
promoted to district chief,
Ryan Crawford to EMS divi-
sion chief and Marc Ander-
son to assistant chief of train-
ing.


Walton County


adopts evaluation


appraisal report

By DOTTY NIST
In the culmination of a process that began last year, on
Dec. 4 Walton County adopted an evaluation appraisal report
(EAR).
The EAR was adopted by unanimous vote of the Walton
County Board of County Commissioners (BCC) following a
motion by District 3 Commissioner Larry Jones and seconded
by District 4 Commissioner Sara Comander.
The state of Florida requires local governments to update
their comprehensive plans on a regular basis. The EAR, which
measures a government's success in addressing issues that
are important to the community through its comprehensive
plan, is a starting point for these updates.
While some proposed small scale land use amendments
have recently been reviewed by the county, official adoption
of these amendments has been on hold pending the EAR
approval process.
The adopted EAR will be sent to the state Department of
Community Affairs for consideration as to its sufficiency.
Specific EAR-based plan amendments will implement the
revisions targeted by the EAR.
"That's the meat," Pat Blackshear of Walton County
Planning said of these amendments. She noted that through
this process almost all of the public input and concern
expressed has been related to issues to be addressed in the
EAR-based amendments.
The EAR-based amendments will be reviewed and adopted


PAT BLACKSHEAR (front) of Walton County Planning and
her employees were applauded for their long hours of work
spent assembling Walton County's recently adopted evaluation
and appraisal report. District 5 Commissioner Cindy
'Meadows estimated that this work would have cost the county
approximately $300,000 if it had been contracted out rather
than handled by staff.


in a series of public meetings, including gatherings to be held
in neighborhoods throughout the county, Blackshear said. All
will be publicly announced and open to all members of the
public, she noted.
Information on the EAR, including questions and com-
ments by the public and county staff responses, is accessible
on the Walton County Web site, www.co.walton.fl.us.


Commissioners get offer for office space


By DOTTY NIST
A local development
company has made an offer
involving office space in
south Walton County for the
county at a reduced rental
rate.
Part of the "public benefit
proposal" would be the
inclusion of the company's
development property in the
2007 acreage allotment for
county-sponsored land use
amendments.
District 5 Commissioner
Cindy Meadows brought up


the proposal for discussion at
the Nov. 28 Walton County
Board of County
Commissioners meeting.
Meadows explained that
Miramar Beach-based G&G
Global Development has
offered to rent 1,100 square
feet or more of office space to
Walton County at -a rate
lower than market value,
with utilities to. be furnished
at no charge. In addition, a
community room seating 75-
100 people would be made
available for the use of the


County Commissioner Scott Brannon accepts a certificate
of appreciation recognizing his tenure as chairman of the
Board of County Commissioners. Commissioner Kenneth
Pridgen was named the new chairman with Cindy Meadows
serving as vice-chair:


county, nonprofits, and
education-related groups at a
rate of $1 per year, she
continued.
The office and community
room space would be located
in Design Center of the
Emerald Coast, the
company's approved
development, to be
constructed on a twelve-acre
site just east of Beachy Clean
Car Wash, she added.
Meadows noted that the
county is currently renting
office space in south Walton
County and "paying top
dollar." The Walton County
Sheriff's office is also looking
for a satellite office, she said.
A planned expansion
adjacent to the South Walton
County Courthouse Annex
will create more county office
and meeting room space, but
Meadows noted that that
project is not expected to
break ground until 2008.
District 3 Commissionei
Larry Jones had concerns
about tying the office/
meeting room space
arrangement with the
inclusion of the development
company's proposed land use
amendment with those to be
sponsored by the county for
2007.
Meadows commented that
amendments that would
provide a public benefit are


prioritized for county
sponsorship, and that the
development company is
proposing to do that in
offering the office and
meeting room space.
- Pat Blackshear of Walton
County Planning explained
that the purpose of the
amendment would be to
correct a map error. The
developer's six acres of
uplands is wrongly classified
for lower density use and his
higher density mixed use
area is located on his six
acres of wetlands, she said.
The developer wants to
"swap" the densities attached
to the two six-acre portions,
she added. Outgoing county
Attorney David Hallman
advised the commissioners to
have their new attorney
review the proposal.
District 1 Commissioner
Scott Brannon suggested
taking a look at planned
capital projects in connection
with geographical locations
in the county.
"I'd like to know what our
needs are," commented new
District 4 Commissioner Sara
Comander. Meadows offered
to bring back more
information on the
developer's plans.

There was no action on the
proposal.


SWFD CHIEF LESS HALLMAN announced his decision
to leave SWFD and go to Tallahassee to lead the FDSFM.





First day of


glassblowing at


SWHS


After 'four years and sev-
eral rejected grant proposals,
everything was in place; the
weather was brisk and per-
fect. Now, at one of only three
high school art departments
in the United States to offer
this 3,000 year-old media to
its art students, the kids
were ready to try their hand
at this ancient art form.
"We want to thank the
Northwest Florida Improve-
ment Foundation, the Cul-
tural Arts Association, the
Walton Education Founda-
tion and the St. Joe Corpora-
tion for their support, as well
as several local businesses
that have supported this ef-
fort with donations of time
and materials" said Jerry
Pilcher, Art teacher at South
Walton High School. "Of
course we appreciate the sup-
port of our school officials,
from our principal to our Su-
perintendent and the Board
of Education."
"Once I showed slides and
videos of art students and
professionals blowing glass,
the students at South Walton

were constantly asking 'why
can't we do that?'", said
Pilcher. "They knew I had
taught glassblowing before?
and pushed me to get it
started here."

Local artist
receives
grant by
Cultural Arts
Association
A local Freeport artist, Kris
Meigs, was recently given a,
grant by the Cultural Arts
Association to study a skill
that will combine two art
mediums she has focused on
for many years tile mosa-
ics and sculpture.
Meig's attended Arrow-
mont School of Arts and
Crafts last month under the
direction of Sherri Warner
Hunter, known for her monu-
mental public sculpture and
author of two books on the
subject of creating concrete
sculpture and ornament for
the garden. This new me-
dium combination will join
the many life sized sculp-
tures and works Meigs has
produced more than three de-
cades for restaurants and
homes throughout the
United States.
Meigs' company, Meigsart,
specializes in designing and
installing architectural mo-
saic which includes creating
for use on floors,
backsplashes, fireplace sur-
rounds, furniture, walls and
wall hangings.
Meigs' works can be see by
appointment, on her website
www.meigsart.com, and in
Big Mamas Hula Girl Gal-
lery, Grayton Beach, in south
Walton County.
All Meigs' works, large and
small, can also be seen dur-
ing Joe Elmore's Annual


;hristmas art show


a .walk through the gallery."
Elmore is also showcasing
an eclectic collection of origi-
nal artwork by Marion
Barnes and Gary Patterson.
Known in art circles as
Barnes & Patterson, their col-
laborative funky, three-di-
mensional style customarily
features musicians from all
genres and displays perfectly
in the gallery. Glenn
Thompson's metal furniture
and Carl Post's Adirondack
chairs allow guests to sit
awhile and chat with the art-
ists.
Kris Meigs makes a guest


appearance at the gallery,
this weekend only, with her
latest Christmas gourd
angles and concrete mosaics.
Also on hand will be Kris
Chavez and her Yipi art, a
bright and bold collection of
original creations in a variety
of mediums.
"Take some time this week-
end and experience the
Christmas Art Show at
Elmore's Landing Gallery lo-
cated on Hwy. 331, one-half
mile south of the Clyde B.
Wells bridge", Elmore said.

In what will surely become
an annual tradition, the
Children's Volunteer Health
Network's (CVHN) recent
auction of five kid's cottages,
built and donated by area
businesses was an enormous
success. One builder from At-
lanta bought four of the five
cottages to place in a housing
development there. He paid
$14,500 for the giant shoe
and also took Gone With the
Wind, Alys Palys and the But-
terfly House to Georgia.
Hogwarts Theatre, the in-
ventive cottage complete with
two stories and costumes for
the actors is staying in Wal-
ton County. Claire and John
LaPlante bought the cottage
for their two sons, aged eight
and 10.
Altogether the auction of
the cottages raised $38,600
and according to CVHN vol-
unteers, raffle tickets for the
sixth cottage, on display at

Tricia Carlisle-Northcutt
is having trouble containing
her enthusiasm over the suc-
cess of the event. "Next year
Bud Abbott has already said
he will build two cottages and
we are getting calls from all
over the county about next
year's event. This community
has just rallied around this
project because it is so much
fun and goes for such a good
cause. Rosemary Beach called
and invited us there again
next year to display the cot-
tages," she said.
Northcutt was also buoyed
by news received just this


week from the Emerald Coast
Association of Realtors in
Walton County who decided
to donate the money normally
used for a holiday party. "We
were able to use that money
right away for a child who
needed extensive dental work
and whose parents' insurance
didn't cover it. This was a gap
child who would have fallen
between the cracks without
this gift," she noted.
"We are just excited and
amazed all time," Northcutt
said. "If we stop being excited
and amazed, it is time to stop
altogether, but the ripple ef-
fect on families is wonderful
and a joy to see."

AERATORS:

Go with the Flow


Do you have a faucet that blasts out a huge
stream of water? If it doesn't have an aera-
tor tip, you're wasting money.


Aerators are a simple and inexpensive way to
save money on your water bill. These little de-
vices screw onto the business end of your fau-
cet. They save you money by mixing air with
the water, creating a flow that is still forceful
but that uses far fewer gallons per minute.


How much difference does it make?


\Vhen washing hands, doing dishes or anything
else other than filling something up, with an
aerator you will use 50 percent less water. Not
a bad savings for something that costs only a
couple of bucks. So check your kitchen sink,
bathroom lavatories, laundry tubs, and bar
sinks. If they don't have aerators. put one on.


You will save dough by cutting the flow.

By BRUCE COLLIER
Denzel Washington is one
of those actors whose mere
presence in a film will guar-
antee its success, at least for
the first few weekends. Audi-
ences rely on his near-perfect
taste in choosing projects. In"
the case of Tony Scott's "Deja
Vu," Washington does a good
day's work, elevating an oc-
casionally confusing thriller
into high drama.
The film is set in New Or-
leans, about six months after
Hurricane Katrina. You'd
hardly know it from the first.
scene, which takes place at
the Algiers ferry landing, and
on the Mississippi River. This
part of the city sustained
somewhat less damage than
the Ninth Ward, which we see
later, in all its splintered
desolation.
A car bomb explodes on the
ferry, killing some 500 pas-
sengers, mostly American
sailors headed for a Mardi
Gras celebration.A number of
civilians, including children,
are also murdered. It's a
tough scene to watch, particu-
larly at the very beginning of
a film. The attack is ruled a
terrorist act.
Washington plays Doug
Carlin, an ATF agent with a
sharp eye and a nose for tell-
tale clues. A woman's body is
found floating near the explo-
sion, but the evidence sug-
gests that she was murdered
separately, then cast into the
river to mingle with the other
bodies. When Carlin suggests
that her killer and the
bomber are the same person,
he invites the interest of a
special government agent,
played by Val Kilmer.
Carlin is introduced to an
eccentric circle of scientists,
headed by Denny, played by
Adam Goldberg. The group
has stumbled onto a "space-
folding" technique by which
they can view the recent past,
using special cameras to
project events that have al-
ready happened, from virtu-
ally all perspectives.
Carlin's task is to view the
past as a crime scene, and
make a quick analysis based
on observation of the woman
and other scenes. The sur-
veillance system consumes


massive amounts of energy,
.and since this is one of those
secret federal projects, do-
overs aren't possible. As if
this weren't pressure enough,
Carlin finds himself falling in
love with the victim, played
by Paula Patton, as he
watches her in the days be-
fore her murder.
You can probably see
where all this is leading.
Carlin identifies the bomber,
gets a confession, and the feds
are ready to close the case.
Not enough, says our hero,
who wants to use the system
to prevent the bombing, and,
of course, save the girl. Natu-
rally, the feds say no, the sys-
tem isn't reliable, we can't
send a person back in time,
etc., but Denzel Washington
didn't earn two Oscars by tak-
ing no for an answer. He does
what a man's gotta do.
One of the things I liked
best about "Deja Vu" was its
refusal to pander to the Hol-
lywood/tourist board image of
New Orleans. Director Scott
shows us the city as it is, skip-
ping the parades, gumbo, voo-
doo, and tragic women drink-
ing bourbon in the morning
in their nightgowns. The ac-
tors cast as locals have real
local accents, not those Ten-
nessee Williams drawls one
usually endures in films set
in New Orleans. The only
reason the film is set during
Mardi Gras is that the city is
packed at that time, and a
bomb on a ferry would do
maximum damage.
Washington is in his acting
prime. He plays Carlin as a
straightforwardly decent guy,
with humor and intensity,
the kind of law enforcement
officer we all want protecting
us. Kilmer takes a holiday
from his usual weirdness and
underplays his role. Paula
Patton as the victim and
Adam Goldberg as a sympa-
thetic scientist are likewise
very good. If you liked Jim
Caviezel as Jesus, get set for
a shock He's definitely em-
braced the dark side here.
"Deja Vu" has a satisfying,
predictable ending, though it
does leave a few strands
hanging. You'll have to watch
it to see what I mean. Just
remember what one of the

The Christmas shop-
ping rush is in full
swing and that means
the hot seasonal gift
items will be in short
supply. With only two
and a half weeks left
to shop, it might be
time to hit the stores.

You saw it on television,
you heard about it on the ra-
dio, and you read the horror
stories of those stores who
opened their doors before the
rooster crowed and the hun-
dreds of thousands that
swarmed the aisles. It was a
free-for-all, fist-swinging, leg-
kicking, teeth-bashing and
name-calling shopping
frenzy for those who wanted
to save a few bucks.

But one thing that many of
us who did not fight the
crowds the day after
Thanksgiving came to real-
ize was that it wasn't just
about saving on early bird
specials, it was about being
able to buy the "cool" gifts
before they ran out.
All across the country, de-
partment stores, retail malls,
even car lots, were advertis-
ing the big sales that would
start the day after Thanks-
giving. Known to Wall Street
as the biggest shopping day
and known to retail clerks as
Black Friday, both antici-
pated 'a crazed crowd of
shopaholics.
Hundreds of thousands
lined up a week before


Thanksgiving to try to get
their hands on the
Playstation 3 that hit some
stores on Nov. 17. While in
New York, I saw lines on
Broadway, wrapped around
two city blocks, of campers,
gamers and those who just
seemed to have nothing bet-
ter to do than fight the rain
and cold.
These folks were in line to
get their hands on the latest
game station, Playstation 3.
Many, interviewed for the
news on the night the stores
opened their doors to the
public, said they hated the
'whole game craze and were
just going to put their $350
game box on the Internet to
flip it for a profit.
And flip it for a profit they
have!

If you are trying to find that
particular item for a Christ-
mas gift this year, good luck.
In any given store that sold
them, you will be put on a
waiting list and be called
around the first of February
when. the stores get their
next shipment.
For all those people we
thought were crazy for being
in-line for days waiting in the


rain and cold, many of them
are now laughing all the way
to the bank with e-Bay sales
hitting $3,500 per game sta-
tion.
Yes, that is a 100 percent
mark-up, but legal on the
open trade market of e-Bay.
Not everyone has had the
game station craze and they
just assume they will get the
next item on their loved ones
gift list. Well surprise, the
games that are sold sepa-*
rately from the Gamestation
3 are the next big craze.
Despite the fact the games
are much easier to find and
cost less (abut $30 per game
cartridge), they still are in
hot demand. A few are so
popular that they have be-
come the number-one item in
home and retail thefts. Re-
member, it is just a game.
Even the old standards and
the first Nintendo games
such as Donkey Kong, Ms.
Pac Man and Asteroids are
seeing a surge in sales once
again and those items made
their first appearance in the
early 80s.
Lists change from person
to person. -Different things
appeal to different people.
Other items that are being


requested this year, that
might help your shopping go
a little smoother, are I-Pods,
family plan walkie-talkie/
phone sales and of course
gift certificates that always
say, "I,love you so much, I'd
rather you pick out what you
want instead of seeing my
gift at your next yard sale."
Though it is now the
middle of December, another
form of retail shopping is at
an all time high. Internet
stores and shopping such as
Overstock.com, Wal-
Mart.com and other on-line
catalog shopping centers
have seen a nearly 50 per-
cent jump in sales since the
first of the month. The con-
venience of on-line shopping,
without the hassle of crowds
and traffic, is just what mil-
lions of Americans are re-
sorting to this season.
But if you do decide to
shop on-line, and vote not to
go to the malls and shopping
centers, be aware that it is
the middle of December.
With on-line shopping on the
increase and Christmas Day
just about here, packages
and gifts may not arrive in
time for opening on Christ-
mas morning.

No matter if they promise
you next-day delivery, just
remember the look on little
Timmy or Susie's face when
you tell them that Santa got
held up in the customs de-
partment and their
Playstation 3 won't be here
until Valentine's Day. It
could happen!
Merry Christmas shop-
ping!

"FEELS SO GOOD," played by trumpeter Jennifer Mor-
gan at OWC jazz concert.





OWC's "Raiders of


the Lost Art" plays


jazz classics


By BRUCE COLLIER
The jazz band of Okaloosa-
Walton College (OWC) and
University of West Florida
(UWF), a.k.a. the "Raiders of'
'the Lost Art," performed its
fall concert on Nov. 28 at
OWC's Niceville campus.
Cheryl "Dr. Diva" Jones led a
combo of nine musicians and
two vocalists in an evening
of vintage jazz, with a taste
of holiday swing.

SThe band played nine
pieces, performing without
intermission before a good-
sized crowd in the Arts Cen-
ter Mainstage. The concert
was free, and was presented
by the OWC and UWF mu-'
sic education departments.
Jones kept the program
moving, joking and flirting
with the audience and throw-
ing herself wholeheartedly
into her conducting.
An accomplished jazz
singer, Jones joined in at sev-
eral points, crooning on Billy
Strayhorn's "Take the A
Train," rounding out a vocal
trio on the World War II clas-
sic, "Don't Sit Under the
Apple Tree," and strutting
with a cowbell 'on Dizzy
Gillespie's "Manteca."


Benny Golson's "Killer
Joe" spotlighted trumpeter
Jace DelGado and steel
drummer Rudy "Appleseed"
Applewhite. Vocalists Jane
Vega and Patty Harcrow-Orr
smoothly rendered
Gershwin's "A Foggy Day,"
followed by "Apple Tree" with
Jones.
Jazz saxophone legend
John Coltrane's "Cousin
Mary" featured DelGado,
with Jim Schell on tenor sax
and Daniel "Big Bizness"
Hutson on alto, with Micha
"Thunderfoot" McLain sup-
plying the beat.
The joy of sax continued
with Sonny Rollins' happy
Caribbean-flavored "St. Tho-
mas," which gave Applewhite
a chance to shine. Chuck
Mangione's 1970s pop/jazz
classic, "Feels So Good," was
played with feeling on trum-
pet Mangione's version is on
flugelhorn by Jennifer Mor-
gan.
Jim Schell stepped up
with "Red Clay," written by
trumpeter Freddie Hubbard,
in a shorter arrangement of
this work. Glenn Miller's
"Stella by Starlight" and
"Bernie's Tune," by Bernie
Miller, Jerry Lieber and Mike.


DR. DIVA (CHERYL JONES) struts to "Manteca" at OWC
jazz concert.


RUDY"APPLESEED"APPLEWHITE on steel drums with
Sonny Rollins' "St. Thomas" at OWC's Raiders of the Lost
Art concert.


Stoller, gave DelGado an-
other chance in the spot-
light. .
The entire combo took a
backseat to Jones in
"Manteca," giving the diva a
chance to tour the stage and
ping the .cowbell. Gillespie
was famous for combining
challenging music with
cheerful clowning, and Jones
had caught the Dizzy spirit.

The evening concluded
with a tribute to the late
Frances Herron, head of
OWC's dance department,
who passed away this year.


Jones thanked Herron for in-
troducing her to "Harlem
Nutcracker," a spin on
Tchaikovsky's classic Christ-
mas piece, written by Duke
Ellington. The band all got
into the act, and left the au-
dience with a sweet foretaste
of the holidays.
Other members of the
band were Geoff "El Jeff'e"
Strawn on trumpet, Jim "the
Bass Jim" Remsberg and
Nick "Nicholai Sanchez"
Mazzilli on bass, Jesse
"Salmon Pattie" Schofield on
piano and french horn, and
Jake Colvinator on guitar.


Please be advised accordingly.

Wa(ton County Snow Vr 4 Wews


By Nanicy A. Gehrke, Information Officer Welcome, one and
all, to Miramar Beach, Destin and points beyond. Snowbirds
have come to the right place at the right time.
Registration and membership in the Walton County Snow-
bird organization needs to occur to participate in the happen-
ings. This takes place every Monday morning from 8:30 to 11
a.m. at the Faith Assembly Hall on South Geronimo Street, be-
hind the Miramar Post Office. Membership this year is only $7
per person and will be a gateway to fellowship and friendly
competition. Representatives of various activities will be on hand
to help and, if they don't have the activity organized, just tell
one of the fearless leaders and they will do what they can to
make that happen.
For example, they had a request for an interest group in pho-
tography. Are there any takers, leaders or flashers?
While snowbirds have been gone from here, there was lots of
local discussion about drivers poking along in the passing lane
on U.S. 98. Please, don't be accused of doing that. Mosey over to
the right hand lane and remember that there are no third or
fourth lanes on U.S. 98. There are only two. If a driver happens
to be in a third or fourth lane, prepare to turn and not try to
jump back into traffic. Death and heavy-duty fender benders
can result.
To be as up-to-date as possible on the 'happenings, access the

on over to the Computer Club every second and fourth Tuesday

the season, snowbirds will return to the northland equipped
with valuable information. Beginners and experienced are en-
couraged to participate.
After registering,as a Walton County Snowbird, put the Gen-
eral Meeting at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 13, at the Linkside
Conference Center high on the priority list. Not only will snow-
birds gather en masse, but they will have the .opportunity to
enjoy '"3's Company," a song and dance team who will be cos-
tumed in holiday attire, making toes tap and our hearts sing
with their tribute to the season, complete with door prizes. (Reg-
istration will also take place at this time.)
