DFS Council


acts on


growth

By LEIGH STRICKLAND
One of the main issue fac-
ing the city of DeFuniak
Springs is that of growth.
Monday night's meeting of
the city council saw several
agenda items up for consid-
eration that related to that
issue.
An ordinance was ap-
proved for the regulating of
subdivisions in the city. The
revised document has been
in the works for several
months. Changes from prior
city codes include corrections
for error and clarification,
changing certain require-
ments, and a provision for
sidewalks. After allowing for
public input, the council ap-
proved the subdivisions re-
quirements with a 5-0 vote.
Two new subdivisions
were then discussed and
given final plat approval.
Pinehurst Estates is to be
a 59-lot subdivision located
on the north side of Walton
Road, west of the Stanley
House assisted living facility.
Larry Laird, of the city's
building and planning de-
partment, said that plans
have been in the making for
about a year. All issues with
the subdivision have been
corrected, he said, and ap-
proval of the plat was recom-
mended. The city will provide
utilities but all other mat-
ters, including the mainte-
nance of streets will be
handled by a homeowner's
association.
Plans for Hunter's Ridge,
to be located south of Walton
Road and east of North 20th
Street, have been affected by
problems with a Gulf Power
easement. As a result of this,
changes have been made and
the subdivision has been
replatted. According to Laird,
all deficiencies have been cor-
rected and the subdivision
meets subdivision require-
ments. One of the changes to
the plans is the addition of
32 lots to phase one of the
project, for a total of 57 lots
'in that phase. Like Pinehurst
Estates, Hunter's Ridge is to
have a homeowner's associa-
tion that will be responsible
for everything except utili-
ties, which will be provided
by the city.
Both projects received fi-
nal approval.
Two pieces of property in
the Quail Ridge subdivision
may soon be annexed into the
city. These are located on the
west side of U.S. 331 South
and are adjacent to current
city limits across that high-
way.
Lots 25 and 26 of the sub-
division were requested to be
annexed into the city. An or-
dinance to that effect has
been prepared and a first
reading given. The city will
advertise for public hearing
and adoption to be held at a


issues

future meeting.
Another property consist-
ing of four lots in the subdi-
vision which also face U.S.
331 South have also been re-
quested to be annexed into
the city. Three of the lots are
vacant and one contains the
business Gulf Communica-
tions, Inc. The council voted
to authorize the city attorney
to prepare an ordinance for
the annexation. The lots are
expected to come into the city
zoned residential and then
later to be changed to com-
mercial zoning.
An ordinance for transpor-
tation proportionate fair
share has been prepared and
was given first reading at the
meeting. This document
deals with the impact of de-
velopment on transportation
facilities. According to the or-
dinance, developers will be
required to contribute their
proportionate fair share of
the costs of road improve-
ments and upkeep, reducing
the potential for unaccept-
able levels of traffic conges-
tion. Public hearing and a
vote for the adoption of the
ordinance will take place at
a future council meeting.
Another area of growth in
DeFuniak is at the airport.
The council approved award-
ing funds to URS for the
renovation of the existing ter-
minal building. Airport FBO
Jonathan Dunn and John
Holland of Air Methods were
present at the meeting to dis-
cuss future plans for the air-
port. Plans include the relo-
cation of EMS helicopters
from' the South Walton
Sheriffs station to the DeFu-
niak Springs airport. There
was also discussion of a flight
school and the possibility of
Enterprise Rentals providing
rental cars out of the airport.
Chief of Police Mike
Adkinson addressed the
council requesting funds for
a system upgrade to the
Crimestar Computer Aided
Dispatch software. "Timely
approval of this request is of
the essence," he wrote in a
memo to the council, "so as
to remain on the schedule set
forth for communications
center completion." Adkinson
also requested that Embarq/
Sprint be designated as the
sole source vendor for the in-
stallation and upgrade of the
Lifeline 100 Public Safety
Answering Point. The coun-
cil approved both requests.
In other council news, the
city received a donation of
$1,000 from Wal-Mart for
Christmas Reflections. City
Manager Kim Presnell re-
minds residents that tree
trimmers, like all contrac-
tors, must be licensed and
insured. ChiefAdkinson said
that there have been three
confirmed cases of tree trim-
ming scams in the city.

School board



voices dim



view of STAR


By PATRICK CASEY
The Walton County School
Board met on Tuesday, De-
cember 5, at the Tivoli Ad-
ministrative Complex to dis-
cuss a variety of items in-
cluding the STAR program
and school board member
salaries.
Superintendent Carlene
Anderson presented the
STAR (Special Teachers are
Rewarded) program for dis-
cussion. This program has
not been a favorite among
school boards or teachers'
unions across the state, but'
is the current rewards pro-
gram the state has in place.
"The teachers don't like it,
we don't like it. I am afraid
it will turn teachers against
teachers for those who get
the bonus versus those that
don't. But if we don't do it and
use the state money, we will
have to pay for it on the local
level," Mildred Wilkerson af-
firmed at the meeting.
STAR is basically a dis-
trict performance payment
plan based primarily on stu-
dent learning gains. The pro-
gram rewards teachers iden-
tified as outstanding with a
minimum five percent bonus.
Districts can meet the statu-
tory performance pay re-
quirement for outstanding
teachers in several ways.
STAR is the option available
to districts this year, for
which the Legislature appro-
priated $147.5 million.
These are four possible
scenarios where districts
may or may not be in compli-
ance with the outstanding
teacher component of the
law:


1. A district can adopt and
implement a STAR perfor-
mance pay plan approved by
the state and funded with the
STAR appropriation. In this
case, the district is compliant
with the outstanding teacher
component of the law.
2. A district can adopt and
implement a STAR perfor-
mance pay'plan approved by
the state and funded with the
STAR appropriation, and re-
tain a local plan, such as the
current performance pay
plan, that may not meet the
requirements of state law,
but that is funded locally. By
having an approved STAR
plan, the district in this case
is compliant with the out-
standing teacher component
of the law, and the locally de-
veloped plan exists separate
and apart from the STAR
plan.
3. A district can choose not
to participate in STAR, in
which case it would revert to
using its .existing perfor-
mance pay plan. Since no ex-
isting performance pay plan
is compliant with Section
1012.22, F.S., this local plan
would need to be rewritten to
comply with the law and re-
ceive state approval. In this
case, the bonus awards would
be locally funded and no
STAR funds could be used;
but upon state approval of
the revised plan, the district
would be compliant with the
outstanding teacher compo-
nent of Section 1012:22, F.S.
4. A district can choose not
to participate in STAR, in
which case it would revert to

A GROUNDBREAKING OCCASION. Freeport official's
and notables turn the first shovels of earth for the 7,000 square-
foot Freeport City Hall project.



Freeport starts


on new city hall


The City of Freeport held
a groundbreaking ceremony
to commemorate the onset of
construction on the new
7,000 square foot City Hall
located at 112 Highway 20
West. The ceremony marked
the beginning of the final
stage of a project that will
give the city government
more room. The need to ex-,
pand due to the continued
growth in the area was a pri-
mary reason to undertake
this project and the United
States Department of Agri-
culture Rural Development
provided assistance in the
form of $1,356,810 in com-
munity facility loan and
grant funds.
Rural Development has
worked with the City of Free-
port on a number of other
projects. In 2003, the City of
Freeport was recognized for
its initiatives in sustainable


community and economic de-
velopment when it received
Florida's "Rural Community
of the Year" award. The new
City Hall project is further
confirmation of the city's
commitment to the commu-
nity and the future, as it con-
tinues to plan for growth. The
new City Hall will allow the
city employees to serve their
current customers more effi-
ciently and effectively and
provide room for future
growth.
Due to its location, Free-
port has become the cross-
roads between north and
south Walton County. This
central location makes Free-
port a convenient spot for
families that want to live and
work in Walton County. This
location ensures that Free-
port will continue to grow
along with all of Northwest
Florida.


Bay Harbour mineral

rights claim notice filed

only to reserve rights


By BRUCE COLLIER
An inquiry was recently
sent to the Herald by an
owner of property in
Freeport's Bay Harbour, ex-
pressing concern about re-
ceipt of a "notice of claim" in
the mail. The owner was pre-
paring to build a residence on
the property, and wanted to
know what effect, if any, the
notice would have.
The notice of claim re-
serves a right of entry and in-
gress/egress easements for
mineral rights on land in the
Bay Harbour property At-
torney William H. Green,
who prepared and filed the
notice, said that it was
strictly for the purpose of
avoiding prescription of
rights.
Green filed the notice in
the Walton County records


several months ago, sending
copies of the notice to prop-
erty owners of record, includ-
ing Bay Harbour and Bay
Harbour Owners' Associa-
tion.
Green filed the notice on
behalf of the owner of the
mineral rights, Lamar M.
Richardson Jr., of
Mandeville, LA. Green said
that such notices must be
filed periodically to avoid
prescription of the rights.

Persons purchasing prop-
erty affected by such a reser-
vation of rights are made
aware of this, provided a
property title search is per-
formed prior to sale. Green
said that no minerals have
been discovered, and that
there are no plans to exercise
the rights.

lets.


Energy expo spotlights alternative fuels


By BRUCE COLLIER
A Walton County Energy
Expo was held Dec. 13 at the
Walton County Extension
Office in DeFuniak Springs.
The all-day event spotlighted
alternative fuels and fuel
sources, as well as energy
conservation technology.

A number of energy creat-
ing and saving devices were


outside on display, including
solar panels.and a biodiesel
processor, converting deep
fryer oil into biodiesel fuel
product. Also operating was
a home heating stove fueled
by dried corn and wood pel-
lets.
Lunch came in the form of
barbecue, cooked outside the
building on the "Full Steam
Ahead BBQ," a handbuilt,


2,500 pound barbecue cooker
operated by steam power.
The cooker was constructed
to resemble the engine of an
old-fashioned steam locomo-
tive, complete 'with dinner
"whistle."
Designer/builder Jim
Cosson said that the barbe-
cue took about six months to
construct, and features an
oven, rotisserie, and "steam


table" trays to keep food
warm. The boiler is heated by
a wood fire, using pecan
wood.

Speaking at the expo were
Dr. Rick Schroeder on biom-
ass feedstock, Maik Friedline
on "building site to sun," and
,Shannon Vineyard on new
technology and cost effective
solutions to energy needs.

EDITOR'S COMMENT

Christmas in Dixie
By RON KELLEY
The streets are crowded, the parking lots of every mall,
every K-Mart, every Wal-Mart and Target store are full. The
TV is full of ads for toys, diamonds and electric razors. "It's A
Wonderful Life" is now in its 869th run on TNT... this month.
It must be Christmas.
Actually, Christmas is no surprise to anyone living in
Walton County. Hometown Christmas has come and gone,
the Christmas Reflections lights in the Lakeyard are shin-
ing brightly every night, the Christmas Parade has come and
gone, decorations adorn the Chautauqua Building. City
streets, stores and homes from Paxton to Seagrove Beach
are bedecked and bedazzled with wreaths, lights, stars,
Santas and The Nativity.
For children, it's a magical time. School will soon be out
for the Christmas break. Visions of sugarplums dance in their
heads as they dream of leaving a plate of cookies and a glass
of milk near the tree, with an ear cocked for the sound of
sleigh bells on the roof. Oh, the joy and excitement of that
glorious night.
For parents, it's a busy, harried time, as they juggle work,
shopping, wrapping, mailing, baking and holiday gatherings,
while tending to the normal comings and goings of daily life.
For adults without children, it's a time to gather with
friends and family, to remember the reason for the season,
the birth of God in human form, the foundation for all Chris-
tian religion.
For still others, it's a special mix of all these things.
In every town and every community, it seems there are
always a small group of special people whose mission is to
make Christmas as wonderful as they possibly can for as
many people as they possibly can.
Many times, Faithful Reader, you have heard me marvel
at the generosity of the people of Walton County. Whether
it's a friend in need or a complete stranger in dire straits,
people all over Walton County quickly but quietly come to
the rescue.
This season is no different. The Walton County Council on
Aging is gathering donations for less fortunate elderly resi-
dents through their Senior Tree of Hope. They are seeking
everything from toiletries, books and magazines to food, gift
certificates and pet supplies. These items will go to seniors
in communities throughout the. county. Call Jean Harvey to
find out more (892-8166).
Shelter House is also seeking donations for their Christ-
mas Program. They are seeking a similar list of items for
battered and abused women and children trying to escape
domestic violence. Call Terri Adkinson at 892-5411 ,to find
out how to help.
My friend Julie Hurst and her caring staff at the Children's
Advocacy Center in Niceville have been gathering toys to



Editor:
Covington County, Alabama, and the City of Opp will be
getting a $40 million alternative fuel plant that will begin
an employment capacity of 150 employees.
The state, county and city officials have been behind the
plant coming here, as it will greatly generate a tax revenue
for the county and city.
It will create shopping centers, housing medical care and
business for the city.
We, here in northwest Florida, will also greatly benefit
from the plant, buying diesel, by-products, frequenting their
malls, business and using their medical care.
Walton County could have gotten something this big into
this county, but it seems to me that they cannot see beyond
Eglin Field, tourism and housing.
I have said it many times that Walton County is being left
behind. Neighboring counties and states are rapidly progress-
ing and I simply do not understand why we cannot progress.
As a Walton County resident; I am very happy we are
finally getting something of benefit, even if it has to be in
Alabama.

Editor:
This is a job for a whole company of Rangers...or it's a
job for one or two men," laments Ethan Edwards, played
by a stoic John Wayne, in John Ford's 1956 classic The
Searchers. "Right now, we're too many and not enough."
Edwards comes to this revelation after two failed attempts
at rescuing his kidnapped niece from her Comanche cap-
tbrs. After 'a failed daylight attack on the numerically su-
perior renegades, which resulted in the small party of Texas
Rangers being forced to flee for their lives, a change of
strategy was needed. So the band decided to creep into
the Comanche camp at night, and sneak the captive girl
out in the darkness. As they approached, the Comanche,
alerted by the sound of the men leading their horses in
the quiet desert night, promptly grabbed the child and
fled. The painful lesson learned by the movie's protago-
nist is that the only way his loved one will ever be rescued
is if either; an overwhelming force of men surrounds and
defeats the warriors, or one or two men are able to catch
them off guard. This lesson can be applied to the currently
deteriorating situation in Iraq. and the debate over U.S.
troop levels which it has spawned
As it stands today, American forces in Iraq are both too
many and too few. John Murtha is correct in saying that
we have established too large of a footprint, resulting in
our troops becoming a big target. Although it is completely
contradictory, John McCain's analysis, that "the simple.
truth is that we do not have sufficient forces in Iraq to
meet our military objectives," is accurate as well. Stuck in
an unproductive middle ground, our forces are too small
to overwhelm the insurgency, but are large enough to
frighten the insurgents away from a decisive confronta-
tion, which is exactly what is needed to defeat them. Al-
though comparisons to Vietnam are tempting, our involve-
ment in Iraq more closely resembles the failed French cam-
Spaign in Algeria (1954-1962).
France responded to a series of attacks on its small mili-
tary force, which used its superior firepower to inflict heavy
casualties on the insurgents, by increasing its troop
strength. The Algerian separatists responded to this with
a change of tactics of their own. Rather than confront the
now overwhelming French forces head-on, they split up,
forming small bands to carry out small-scale terror at-
tacks in the cities. The result, for the French, was a death
by a thousand cuts, much like the one we are experienc-
ing today in Iraq.
If we are going to stay in Iraq, our troop levels must
change. The first option is to increase our strength to the
extent that there is practically a soldier on every street
corner. American forces would flood the country, and deny
the insurgents an opportunity to breathe. This impracti-
cal plan would require many more than the 20,000 addi-
tional service members that John McCain has requested.
It would also further anger the Iraqi people, and require
manpower and resources that are just not worth the cost.
If we must stay, then the only real choice left is to follow
the example set by modern history's most successful
counter-insurgency.
During the Malayan Emergency (1948-1960), a British
force, smaller than the one we currently have in Iraq, de-
feated a communist insurgency, larger than the one we
currently face. They did so by operating in small units,
which were more difficult to detect, and more likely to be
confronted by the-insurgents. When this happened, the
results were predictable. The better trained and better
equipped British forces took casualties, but inflicted such
heavy losses on their enemy that the communists threw
in the towel. The smaller force also resulted in fewer civil-
ian casualties, posed less of an inconvenience to the popu-
lation, and caused less "collateral damage." This went a
long way in hindering the spread of support for the insur-
gency,
Any increase in American troop levels in Iraq will fur-,
ther alienate the Iraqi people, and will not be.enough to
overwhelm the insurgents. It will only serve to provide
them with more targets. Since "going big" is not an option,
hopefully the Bush Administration realizes that it has a
clear choice to make. It can follow the British example
and "go small," or it can go home.

give to sexually and physically abused children in Walton
and Okaloosa counties. I know she would be glad to hear
from you. Call her at 833-9237.
The folks at CHELCO have done it again with their
annual Christmas fundraisers to buy toys for children
right here in our communities. You probably saw them
out one cold Saturday morning, smiling and waving to
motorists and taking in scattered coins and rumpled dol-
lar bills to make sure some needy child can wear a smile
on Christmas morning.
Caring & Sharing in north and south Walton do their
good works year round, but it takes on a special meaning
at this time of the year. Our favorite bell-ringers, The
Salvation Army can be found braving the winter chills in
front of stores and malls all over the county as they, too,
take donations to help families here at Christmas and
throughout the year. Many local civic clubs, agencies and
organizations also do what they can to spread Christmas
cheer and share the Christmas Spirit.
Even more wonderful than these caring professionals
are the people, the friends, the neighbors, the strangers,
who reach into their pockets, into their pantries and into
their own closets to share what they can with those who
have nothing and no else one to turn to for help. No list of
angels would be complete without mentioning those indi-
viduals within our neighborhoods who quietly, often
anonymously, play Santa Claus to a struggling family or
a special someone that really needs a helping hand. I'm
so proud of you all, so thankful to know you, so pleased
you live here and so grateful you are my friends and neigh-
bors.
My advice to anyone who's having trouble discovering
the true meaning of Christmas trying saying a little
prayer of thanks for what you have, then try slipping into
that familiar red jacket with the white fur collar, fill a
large bag with toys and gifts and 'play Santa' to some
family in need or a child faced with the promise of a Christ-
mas Day with no tree and no presents. Then you'll under-
stand all of the things that give Christmas its most spe-
cial meaning.
And you'll know why I love Christmas in Dixie and
why I'm so thankful that I live here.

VIEW FROM FRONT
using its existing performance pay plan. Since no existing per-
formance pay plan, is compliant with Section 1012.22, F.S., if
the plan is not rewritten to comply with the law and does not
receive state approval, the district is out of compliance with
the outstanding teacher component of Section 1012.22, F.S. In
this case, a district is potentially subject to sanctions, such as
the withholding of lottery funds.
The board, despite reservations, approved the measure by a
4-1 margin with Mildred Wilkerson casting the lone dissent-
ing vote.
Wayne Miller, Supervisor of Administration and Operations,
updated the board on building projects. "The Paxton gym has
its roof on. We now have seven very reputable bidders for Mossy
Head School and five for the new Walton High School. The
spot survey at Walton has been approved. We will open bids on
December 14 on the Mossy Head School and will open bids in
, January on the new Walton High School."
The board approved a measure by a 5-0 vote to raise the
pay of substitute clinic aides to $13.86 (for a current LPN with
zero years of experience as according to the current LPN sal-
ary schedule) from the minimum wage rate in Florida of $6.40.
There has been little interest in the job at the minimum wage
rate. This is intended for one individual substitute position.
No benefits are paid for substitute clinic aides. It is estimated
that the maximum number of days a clinic aide substitute
would be needed would be approximately 55 to 60 days per
year. The impact cost increase is figured at a little over $3,000
based on the increase from $6.40 to $13.86.
School board members set their salaries for the 2006-07 term
at the Florida School Board Association's recommendation of
$27,496. School board member Mark Davis pointed out that
the school board is the only constitutional officers that have to
set their own salary. The motion passed with a 5-0 vote.
The next regularly scheduled meeting of the Walton County
School Board will be held on Tuesday, December 19, at 5 p.m.
at the Tivoli Administrative Complex.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, DECEMBER 14, 2006


VA hospital one step closer to rea,1


Congressman Jeff Miller
applauded the passage of S.
3421 "The Veterans Benefits,
Healthcare, and Information
Technology Act." This bill in-
cludes a provision that re-
quires the Secretary ofVeter-
ans' Affairs to conduct a for-
mal study to analyze options
for a full service veterans'
hospital in Okaloosa County.
, The study, proposed by
Miller as an amendment to
the legislation, requires that
a report be submitted to Con-


gress no later than 180 days
after the enactment of the
legislation. The study calls for
the Secretary to identify and
outline various options avail-
able to VA regarding the
placement of a Veterans' Af-
fairs medical center in Oka-
loosa County. The report
would include the feasibility
of entering into a partnership
with Eglin Air Force Base for.
the construction and opera-
tion of the facility; the medi-


cal, legal, and financial impli-
cations of each of the options
identified, including recom-
mendations on any statutory
changes needed for VA to
carry out any of the identified
options; a detailed cost-ben-
efit analysis for each identi-
fied option; and estimates on
the length of time and asso-
ciated costs needed to com-
plete such a facility under
each identified option.

"I am tremendously


pleased that Congress made
this important legislation a
priority and that it was
passed by both chambers be-
fore adjournment of the 109th
Congress," Miller stated. "The
passage of this bill is a giant
step towards opening a full
service VA hospital in north-
west Florida, 'making it ex-
ceedingly easier for those who
served our nation to get the
healthcare they have been
promised by the govern-
ment."
Okaloosa County is in the
center of the First District of


Florida, a district with nu
merous military installations
and over 100,000 veterans.
The district contains both the
highest veteran population
and the highest military re-
tiree population of any con-
gressional district in the na-
tion. Currently, many of these
veterans and military retir-
ees have to drive to Missis-
sippi to receive inpatient care.
The inclusion of this study in
the final bill will force the VA
to address the issue of provid-
ing timely access to inpatient
healthcare for the largest vet-


t, ;L ..... y o u. .
served.
"The absence of a VA hos-
pital in the panhandle of
Florida has been one of the
biggest concerns of veterans
in the area," said Miller.
"Bringing a full service VA
hospital to District'1 is some-
thing I have fought for since
I firstcame to Washington.
The passage of this legisla-
tion is a step in the right di-
rection and a huge'milestone
for veterans and retired mili-
tary in Northwest Florida."

Men of steel.... framing


By JEFFREY POWELL
Lance and Ladd Goodson
are proponents of steel fram-
ing when constructing a new
home or business. Of course,
this comes as no surprise
since they own and operate
Freeport Steel and Framing.
"We provide a commercial-
grade product built to com-
mercial standards and apply
this to residential custom-
ers," said Lance.
The Goodsons have been
operating out of a 40,000
square foot facility just west
of Basin Bayou for about six
months. Although new to the
area, the Goodsons have been
in the steel business for over
25 years. Their parent com-
pany, Southline Steel Indus-
tries Inc., is based in Bir-
mingham Alabama.
According to the Goodsons,
there are many reasons to use
their product rather than
wood. First of all steel fram-
ing can be used in place of
wood but with no chance of
rot, mildew or insect infesta-
tion. Also, steel has a higher
strength to weight ratio,
which allows builders to use
less load-bearing interior
walls resulting in large unob-
structed interior spaces.
Initially customers will in-
cur an approximate 10 per-
cent higher cost in the steel
framing package, but the
Goodsons point out that that
cost is in framing only, not the


Great.

"Some of the up-front costs
in the framing package can be
recouped because the plumb-

DeFuniak Springs man arrested



in sexual predator sting


Special to The DeFuniak Her-
ald from The Andalusia Star
News

A Florala police officer has
been arrested along with 20
other men in a sexual preda-
tor sting operation in Flagler
Beach, Fla.
Todd Spikes, 41, was
charged with attempted lewd
and lascivious conduct with a
child and weapons violations
in an operation orchestrated
in part by the Portland, Ore.,
group, Perverted Justice,
which posed as boys and girls
from age 11 to14 in Internet
chat rooms to flush out sexual
predators. The undercover
group arranged to meet the
21 men for sex at a house in
Flagler Beach where officers
were waiting.
The Florida State
Attorney's office also took
part in the operation which
netted men ranging in age
from 19 to 58, most from
within a 100-mile radius of


the sting.
The four-day operation,
which took place from Friday,
Dec. 8, until Monday, Dec. 11,
was filmed as part of Dateline
NBC's television show To
Catch a Predator.
According to Richard Pryor
of the St. Augustine Record,
Flagler Police Chief Roger
Free announced that Spikes
and the other men had been
under surveillance since en-
tering the town. Spikes was
among the men stopped by
police before reaching the
house where he allegedly ex-
pected to meet an underage
girl for sex. Chief Free said
that Spikes' car contained an
assault rifle, a shotgun, hand-
guns, rope, duct tape and a
boat anchor, but refused to
speculate on the man's inten-
tions.
Spikes, who has been a po-
lice officer in Florala, Ala., for
six to eight months, com-
mutes to work from his home
in Defuniak Springs, Fla.,


and drove more than 300
miles to reach Flagler Beach.
Florala Police Chief Bruce
Maddox said, "Officer Spikes
has been suspended without
pay pending the outcome of
the Flagler Beach Police
Dept.'s investigation. He will
remain suspended until the
case is disposed of through
the judicial system or until
such time as his employment
status is otherwise evaluated
by the City of Florala."
"The Florala Police De-
partment is not involved in
the Flagler Beach Police
Department's investigation
and the details of their inves-
tigation is not known at this
department. Any comments
about their investigation
would be inappropriate and
could jeopardize their inves-
tigation," he said.
"The Florala Police De-
partment applauds Flagler
Beach in their endeavor to
stop Internet predators and
.protect our children, but, we


TODD SPIKES


regret their efforts have
touched our police department.
and community so close to
home."

Police warn of


contracting scam


The DeFuniak Springs Po-
lice Department (DFSPD)
has been investigating re-
ports of incidents involving
possible elderly abuse and
unlawful contracting in De-
Funiak Springs.

Reportedly at least one
employee of Asplundh Com-
pany solicited an elderly resi-
dent to cut a tree in her lawn
while the employee was
working clearing power line
right-of-ways contract for
Gulf Power Electric Com-
pany. The report indicated
the solicitor was an uniden-
tified Hispanic male repre-
senting the Asplundh Tree
Company.
DFSPD investigators met
with Asplundh executive
Kenny Cuevas, and were in-
Formed that it is strictly pro-
hibited for Asplundh employ-
ees to solicit or perform "pri-
vate work" while represent-
ing Asplundh. According to
Cuevas, employees are not


permitted to use any of
Asplundh's equipment, name,

or reputation to solicit or per-
form "private work," and that
doing so is grounds for imme-
diate termination of employ-
ment.
', However, DFSPD has
learned that some local citi-
zens did hire some of these
employees to perform "pri-
vate work" in the past few
days.
It is a felony, to contract
without a license in Floridd.
The DFSPD also reminds the
public that persons perform-
ing such services without a
license are unlikely to have
any insurance, placing citi-
zens and visitors at further
risk.
Anyone who feels that
they or a family member
have been illegally solicited
or perhaps have already re-
ceived services by someone
who may have been operat-
. ing unlawfully, is asked to call
the DFSPD at 892-8511.


Tom Gallagher, Florida's
chief financial officer, Charlie
Crist, Florida's attorney gen-
eral and governor-elect, and
Insurance Commissioner
Kevin McCarty have an-
nounced that Brown &
Brown, Inc. has agreed to re-
imburse up to 400 cities and
counties in Florida approxi-
mately $4.8 million for col-
lecting undisclosed fees or


commissions when it placed
various coverages with insur-
ance companies. Brown &
Brown, a Florida-based insur-
ance broker, has also agreed
to adhere t6 stricter disclo-
sure requirements in its bro-
ker transactions.

"Brown & Brown has .fully
cooperated with our agencies
to reimburse cities and coun-


ties in Florida for excess fees
and commissions it collected
and has agreed to fully dis-
close all fees and commis-
sions in the future,"
Gallagher said. Gallagher
said that the widespread in-
vestigation of Florida's insur-
ance brokers and companies
is positively changing the
way the insurance industry
does business.
"Insurance brokers and
companies must realize that
the people come first," Crist
-said. "This settlement is' an-
other important step in elimi-
nating hidden charges in this
industry."


The $4.8 million in refunds
are the result of a two-year
joint investigation into insur-
ance broker activities con-
ducted by the Department of
Financial Services, which
Gallagher oversees, the Office
of the Attorney General and
the Office of Insurance Regu-
lation. Brown & Brown is also
paying $1 million to the in-
vestigative agencies for reim-
bursement of investigative
costs. Under the settlement,
the broker denied wrongdo-
ing- but agreed to reimburse
its clients without any formal
action taken by the three
state agencies.

LAMAR HAYES pins a 60-year Masonic pin onto John LAMAR HAYES presents Baldwin with a copy of the :
Baldwin. poem, "I'm just a farmer."


JOHN BALDWIN educator, superintendent of schools.

I'm Just a


Farmer,
Plain and
Simple
I'm just a farmer, plain and
simple.
Not of royal birth, but
rather a worker of the
earth.
I know not of riches, but
rather of patches on my
britches.
I'm just a farmer, plain and
simple.
I know of drought and rain,
of pleasure and pain.
I know the good, the bad,
the happy and the sad.
Pm a man of emotions.
A man who loves this land
and the beauty of its sand.
I'm just a farmer, plain and
simple .
I know the spring's fresh
flow and autumn's golden
glow.
Of a new born calfs hesi-
tation and an eagle's des-
tination.
I'm just a farmer, plain and
simple.
I know of tall. pines and
long waiting lines.
I know the warmth of
campfires and the agony of
flat tires.
I'm just a farmer, plain and
simple.
I'm a man who loves his job
and the life that I live.
I'm just a farmer, plain and
simple
And I'm a reaper of har-
vest.
I'm the sower of seeds and
I'm the tender of stock.
I'm just a farmer, plain and
simple.
I know of planting corn and
bailing hay and animals
going astray.
I live in a complex .world,
but my faith guides me.
I'm just a farmer, plain and
simple.
I am a man who works
with God. I cannot succeed


By ROBIN NEWTON
The Paxton Agriculture
Center was filled with
friends, co-workers, and
former students of John
Baldwin as he was awarded
a 60-year pin to commemo-
rate his years of service with
the masonic order.
Robert Spears, the secre-
tary of the Thomas A.
McQueen Lodge, # 341, F &
M, in Paxton, opened the cer-
emony and introduced the
guest speakers. Kenneth
Pridgen was the first to
honor Baldwin, explaining
how he had researched
Baldwin's life and learned
that John Baldwin began his
career as an educator in 1943
and worked in Holmes, Wal-
ton, and Okaloosa counties.
Commissioner Pridgen ex-
pressed his deep apprecia-
tion for Baldwin's service to
Walton County.
The bond between the next
speaker and John Baldwin
was evident as Odon Russell
stood to speak. At one time,
Baldwin had been Russell's
agriculture teacher at the
Paxton School. "Back in
those days, we didn't have
much opportunity unless you
got involved with the FFA.
Mr. Baldwin took me to
Daytona Beach to an FFA
meeting. It was the first
time I had stayed in a hotel,
the first time I saw an orange
tree, and it was the first time
I had ever seen the ocean."
When it was time for
Baldwin to move on, he re-
cruited Russell to take his
place. Russell explained how
he did not come back to Pax-
ton to take Baldwin's job, but
merely to fill a position.
Fellow lodgeman Lamar
Hayes was present" to honor


John Baldwin with a 60-year
pin for service as a Mason.
Hayes, too, was once a stu-
dent of Baldwin's. He re-
called fondly the trips
throughout the state for dif-
ferent FFA events and ex-
plained how he has tried to
live his life according to the
two rules Baldwin had
taught all of his students.
"First, regardless of where
you go, don't forget where
you came from," and, "Sec-
ond, you can take the boy out
of the country, but you can
never take the country out of
the boy."
As Hayes pinned the 60-
year pin onto Baldwin's la-
pel, he thanked him for the
years of service as a Mason
and as a citizen and educa-
tor who worked on the com-
munity, county, and state
levels. He also awarded
Baldwin a plaque with the
poem, "I'm Just a Farmer,
Plain and Simple."
As John Baldwin gra-
ciously accepted the praise,
he described the Masons as
a special organization; one
which changes and then di-
rects lives. He thanked his
lovely bride of 61 yeas,
Monetha, for keeping every-
thing at home going
smoothly while he was out in
the world, doing his job.
Just before she asked the
blessing over the bounty of
food being prepared for the
night's festivities, Elaine
Hagenbuch, pastor of the
United Methodist Church in
Florala, thanked John
Baldwin for over 40 years as
a Sunday School teacher for
the men's class. She referred
to Baldwin as "the most
humble, dedicated Christian
man I know."

studio was presented with a a grand prize trophy and a cashaward.
First place honors went to Wal-Mart Supercenter of DeFuniak Springs. Wal-Mart's float theme (1 '

cash award on behalf of Wal-Mart was store Manager Andrea Welch. o ,
Second place went to Stonehenge Equipment. Their entry consisted of a float designed by Fred, 20TH SPACE CONTROL SQUADRON EGLIN AIR FORCE HONOR

was Ethan Matthews. In the beautifully decorated sleigh that he was pulling were elves Tyler and A N N Mo other
Megan Matthews. The showstopper of this float was a cute little reindeer that accompanied Tyler ROBINSON
and Megan. This little reindeer complete with antlers was portrayed by family member "Haus" Rd terms
the bulldog.

member Walton County High School Band under the direction of Harry Patzi got everyone in the p
spirit of the holiday with Christmas music. ,
Eglin AFB was represented with a return visit from the 20th Space Control Squadron located of
Site C-6. Their annual entry was led this year by Lt. Col. Shane Connary.

desserts satisfied every pal-
ate.
After a festive sing-a-long,
everyone was in the holiday
mood, which set the mood for
heart felt expressions of fa-
vorite scriptures and most
grateful appreciations. It was
indeed a day filled with "pre-
sents" of gratitude.

Someone Is

r ~Watching

By Dr. Charles
Satterwhite
Pastor, Freeport UMC
Have you ever embarrassed yourself with a stinky atti-
tude about the way your life is going? Have you ever mur-
mured or complained about what you don't have or about
prayer that has not yet been answered? Possibly you are
keeping up appearances on the outside but inside there
is a pity party in full swing.
Would you act the same way if someone was watch-
ing? Psalm 138:1 says; "I will give Thee thanks with all
my heart; I will sing praises to Thee before the gods."
Those are false gods; demonic spirits that stand behind
what people worship instead of the true living God. And
this scripture verse indicates they are watching when I
sing praises. Uh Oh. That means they also see me when
I'm grumbling and ungrateful.
Praising God and giving thanks is important for many
reasons but did you ever think of its importance in light
of who is watching? Revelation 12:10 says about Satan;
"for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them be-
fore our God day and night, has been cast down." When
we praise and give thanks to God continuously, regard-
less of our circumstances, there is nothing for Satan to
accuse us of. He is silenced and with no fuel for the fire,
the enemy's meddling in our affairs is diminished.
In sincere praise and thanksgiving God receives all of
our heart. That's the least he is due for his greatness and
kindness and mercy toward us every day. The next time
you start to grumble, be careful. Someone is watching.
Come grow with us at the exciting Freeport United
Methodist Church.

Walton girls grab district win 45-33


- I


SOUTH WALTON'S KENDALL MOORE gets the ball
down the court and gets two points for the Lady Seahawks.


By PATRICK CASEY
Betsy Stevenson scored 10
points and the Walton Braves
used a tenacious defense to
hold South Walton to 33
points in a 45-33 District 1,
Class 3A girls basketball vic-
tory.
Walton(6-2) raced to a 12-
5 advantage after one quar-
ter of play and overcame foul
trouble in the late goings of
the contest to pick up their
first win over the Seahawks
since the 2004-05 season.
Taylor Griffith scored 13
points to lead South Walton
while Tara Watson added
nine for the home squad. The
Seahawks had six other play-
ers score, but none of the six
had more than three points
in the contest.
Walton also had eight play-
ers in the scoring column, but
Walton got nine points from
Casey Perkins and six apiece


from May Lane, Chelsea
Robinson and Leigh Paulk to
outdistance the Seahawks
and improve Walton's district
slate to 1-1 on the young sea-
son.
Walton forced 22 turnovers
in the contest and held the
Seahawks to 11-of-47 shoot-
ing from the floor.
Game Notes: Walton broke
a four game losing streak to
South Walton. The series is
now tied at 4-4. Walton is 1-1
in district play, South Walton
is 0-1. Walton was a perfect
5-for-5 at the free throw line.
Walton is off to a 6-2 start for
the first time since the 2002-
03 regular season, their last
winning year. South Walton
is 0-3 against the county's
other three high schools after
winning the county title last
season. South Walton will
travel to Walton on Tuesday,
January 9.


Baker drops Paxton boys 73


By PATRICK CASEY
The Baker Gators got scor-
ing from all seven of the
squad's varsity players as
they knocked off the Paxton
Bobcats 73-63 in a Saturday
night contest played at the
Paxton High School gymna-
sium.
Chad Lawhon led four
Gators in double figures with
16 points while Josh Rose
added 15. Austin McCart tal-
lied 14 points and Stephen
Shelley added 13 for the vis-
iting squad. Baker's seven-


man team avoided heavy foul
trouble and got the win by
hitting 25-of-57 shots from
the floor. The Baker defense
took advantage of 23 Paxton
turnovers to hold off the home
team.
Paxton got off to a good
start, leading 16-12 after one
quarter of play. Paxton
trailed 36-34 at halftime,
then ran into ball-handling
problem as the squad com-
mitted 14 turnovers in the
second half, allowing Baker
to build a 58-51 lead after


three quarters.
Paxton canned only four
shots from the floor in the
fourth period as turnovers
continued to limit the Bob-
cats comeback attempt. Pax-
ton did manage to get to the
free throw line, but managed
only 3-of-8 shooting form the
charity stripe in the final
stanza.
Colby Forehand led the
way for Paxton with 20 points
while Blake Zessin added 13.
Game Notes: Paxton lost


Area high school scores


-6:


their first game at home of
the season. The Bobcats are
3-1 at home this season. The
game marked the only time
the two teams will meet this
season. Jeff Bradley is in his
ninth season as head coach
and has compiled a record of
142-85 at the school. Paxton
is 4-8 against Baker over the
last ten seasons. Baker had
one of the more impressive
performances at the free
throw line this season, hitting
18-of-24 shots. Baker de-
feated PDL and Paxton in the
same week, both on the road,
and will take part in
Freeport's 16-team Christ-
mas tournament December
27-30 .. ... .

ter. The Lady Braves went on to beat intracouhty rival South

Bowden inducted into Hall of Fame


By CHUCK HINSON
It has been an up and down
past few years for 77-year old
Florida State University
head football coach Bobby
Bowden. However, at the an-
nual ceremonies where he
was honored and inducted
into the College Football Hall
of Fame in New York on Dec.
5, Bowden said he had many
more years of being a coach.
After a dismal season and
a 6-6 record, Bowden had
taken many chances on play-
ers, staff and plays. His big-
gest, many have speculated,
was on his son Jeff Bowden..
Jeff resigned from his posi-
tion as offensive coordinator

a few weeks ago after serv-
ing in the position for six
years.
Bowden senior told a room
full of reporters that he
wanted another national
championship. He said that
he wanted to continue to
coach.
There were 13 other play-
ers being inducted, includ-
ing Mike Rozier, Emmitt
Smith and former FSU quar-
terback and Heisman Trophy
winner Charlie Ward.
Other inductees included
Bobby Anderson, Colorado;

21 yards to get the Baby Rat-
tlers on the scoreboard.
Johnathan Ferrell picked off
a pair of passes, setting up a
Richard Watson touchdown
run in the fourth quarter.

team among the 37-team
Class B classification. The
title is FAMU's fourth state
championship. The Baby Rat-
tlers won the Class A title in
1976, 1977, and 1978. One of
FAMU's ten victories&ame in
a 19-18 decision over Walton,
knocking off the Braves in
Walton's Homecoming game.
Tallahassee North Florida
Christian fell to Belle Glade
Glades Day 42-9 in the Class
A state championship game.
NFC senior quarterback
Chris Walley had a rough day
as he was sacked seven times
in the contest. Glades Day
built a 35-3 lead on their way
to the championship. The loss
spoiled NFC coach Casey
Weldon's attempt to win the
state championship in his
first season at his alma
mater.
In a battle of titans in
Class 2B Pahokee(14-0) de-
feated Ocala Trinity Catholic
25-11 to win the state title.
Trinity Catholic(13-1)
crushed Blountstown in the
state semifinal 50-7 only to be
shut down in the champion-
ship game.
Clewiston missed a 24-
yard field goal with six sec-
onds left that would have won
the Class 2A state champion-
ship against Jacksonville
Bolles, and it cost them.
Bolles scored a touchdown in
triple overtime after
Clewiston settled for a field
goal in the third extra frame
to pull out a 27-24 win for
their eighth state champion-
ship.
Ponte Vedra Beach Nease
eliminated Tallahassee Lin-
coln 3.5-21 in the Class 4A
state semifinal. The Trojans

comeback come to an end
early in the fourth quarter as
Nease quarterback Ted
Stachitas got loose on a 93-
yard run to up the advantage
to 28-14. Lincoln(9-4) could
not stop Stachitas as he
rushed for 214 yards and two
touchdowns in the win.
Amazingly, Nease was 'repri-
manded and fined $20,000 by
the FHSAA on November 7
for offering inducements to
an athlete to attend the
school but not banned from
the state playoffs. The school
was already on probation for
violations with its baseball
program.

went 0-for-3 on fourth down
conversions. Pine Forest ran
for 292 yards, but allowed
Belle Glade 370 yards of to-
tal offense. Belle Glade had
four turnovers, but still ral-
lied from a 27-24 deficit to

Cottondale 69 62


By PATRICK CASEY
Ponce de Leon senior Cody
Carroll scored 33 points and
the Pirates connected on 27-
of-50 free throws to hold off
the Cottondale Hornets 69-62
in a District 2, Class 2A con-
test.
Dylan Skinner added 16
points on the inside for the
Pirates, but the home team
earned the win from the char-
ity stripe as the Pirates im-
proved to 2-0 in district play
with the hard-fough.t win.
PDL(4-2) held a 17-4 lead
after one period of play only
to see Cottondale scored 32
points in the second quarter
to take a 36-34 halftime lead.
Cottondale went 9-of-13 from
the floor during the second
quarter rally, but struggled
shooting the ball in the sec-
ond half. Pierre Spates led
the Hornets with 17 points.
PDL hit 9-of-14 shots in
the second half, but drew
fouls on several occasions
that resulted in 28 free throw
attempts over the final 16
minutes of the contest.
"We made just enough free
throws to hold on to this one.
I'm happy we're 2-0 in the
district, but we still have a lot
of work to do. We played hard
and needed everybody to con-
tribute to beat them," PDL
coach Stacey Stafford said
after the game. "They're very
athletic and can shoot the
ball, you can't relax against
them."
PDL will rematch
Cottondale on Friday, Janu-
ary 22, in Cottondale.
Game Notes: PDL has
struggled with Cottondale in
recent years and is only 2-9
against the Hornets in their
last 11 meetings, dating back
nearly a decade. PDL won the
junior varsity contest 50-33.
Stacey Stafford is in his third
season at PDL and owns a
record of 32-29 with a trip to
the region final in his first


notes from 10 B


passes for an Alabama single-
season record 1,014 yards
and five touchdowns. Hall
and David Palmer are the
only two Crimson Tide receiv-
ers with 1,000 or more yards
in a season. Palmer had ex-
actly 1,000 yards in 1993. In
addition, Hall set Alabama
records this season for most
career 100-yard games (11),
most 100-yard games in a
season (7) and most consecu-
tive 100-yard games (5).
Damon Nickson, a native
of Milton, became only the
second player in Middle
Tennessee's 95-year football
history to return two kickoffs
for touchdowns in the same


season when he accomplished
the feat this year. Nickson
was named to the first-team
All-Sun Belt Conference foot-
ball squad as a defensive back
and as a kick returned.
William Gay, a senior
cornerback for Louisville,
made the 2006 All-Big East
first team in football. Gay,
who played his high school

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, DECEMBER 14, 2006.


Outdoors with Luke Clausen: A Guide to a Great Day


Did you know that when
you book a guide in the
Florida Keys, it's customary
to call the guide the night
before and ask what you
should bring them for lunch?
But what about trout fishing
in the northwest? Or bass
fishing in the south? Are
there unwritten rules for
guides everywhere you go?
Just like you, I love to fish.
Much like many of my fellow
Ranger Pro Staff members,
even when we have time off
away from competition we
still find time to go fishing
mil, f __.- ..


just for fun. And sometimes,
just like you, I will book a
guide to take me fishing.
Whether it's saltwater or
freshwater, the objective is all
the same: you are paying
them to help you catch more
fish and/or access to certain
water. Don't worry about the
little rules though, just make
sure you ask the right ques-
tions and you won't have to
worry about having a bad
time on your trip or offend-
ing anyone.
The things to remember
about guides: there are good


guides and there are bad
guides; the good ones work
very hard for their money.
While they may know the wa-
ter you are fishing like the
back of their own hand, fish
don't always behave accord-
ingly. A bad day of fishing
isn't always the guide's fault.
But, the biggest problems
that occur between anglers
and guides have less. to do
with fishing and more to do
with miscommunication.
Here's a list of things you
should remember when book-
ing your next guided fishing
trip:
Book early whenever pos-
sible. Booking early gives you'
a better chance of being able
to book the guide you want
during the time you want.
Trust the guide's advice on
when the best fishing is avail-
able and adjust your sched-
ule accordingly.
Get references. Don't ever


plan a day on the water with
a person you know nothing
about. And don't worry about
offending anyone: a reputable
guide is more than willing to
give you some past clients'
names.
Be honest about your fish-
ing abilities and let the guide
know what you can and can't
do. Also, let them know how
much fishing you do on- your
own. This will help the guide
better a plan an outing for you
that will not only help you be
more successful but will make
the trip more enjoyable. Also,
let the guide knowsup front if
children will be along on the
trip.
Determine whose gear is
being used and who is provid-
ing things like lunches,
snacks, drinks and other ne-
cessities. Most guides provide
all of this and things like sun-
screen in the price but better
to ask and not regret being


hungry and sunburned later.
If you want to fish with your
own gear, let the guide know
or let him make some gear rec-
ommendations to you.
Don't ever ask the guide to
bend the rules whether they
are the rules of his boat (like
no alcohol on board) or game
laws. If the guide asks you to
break a game law, don't do it.
Determine an exact time
and place that you will meet
the guide and determine how
long the trip will last.
Don't tell the'guide what to
do, be respectful and helpful
whenever possible.

Tipping is important. Re-
member, these guides work
hard for you and should be re-
warded accordingly. Standard
tip for a fishing guide on a
good day should be 20 percent
of the day's rate for each per-
son on board. On really good
days, that tip should be even


higher. If you catch a fish of a
lifetime, be prepared to give
the tip of a lifetime. Your gen-
erosity will not be forgotten.

Many of my fellow Ranger
pro staff members either got
their starts guiding or still d6
guide on both fresh and salt-
water when not fishing tour-
naments. They do it not only
for the livelihood that it pro-
vides them, but because they
love the sport. A great, guide
has a passion for fishing that
he will share with everyone
and that makes them a great
resource to have along the
next time you want to fish in
some unfamiliar water.

Ranger Boats Pro Staff
member Luke Clausen is the
2006 Bassmaster Classic
champion and the youngest
angler in professional fishing
history to eclipse the $1 mil-
lion career earnings mark.

Troy Smith


OSU's Smith


wins Heisman


By CHUCK HINSON
It has been a dream season
for the No. 1- ranked, 12-0,
Ohio State Buckeyes. Going
to the BCS Championship
bowl, being ranked in the top
spot all season, and their
quarterback being celebrated
for winning the Heisman Tro-
phy this past weekend, have
given the Buckeyes reason to
cheer.
Senior. quarterback Troy
Smith locked in-the most
votes and jumped ahead in
the race after OSU's impres-
sive win in their final game
of the year over No. 2 ranked
Michigan and his flawless
game against Texas in Sep-
tember when he threw four
touchdowns.
Now for the Buckeyes and
Smith, the season will be
complete, with a record-set-
ting year if they beat Florida
on Jan. 8 in Glendale, AZ.
Smith received 801 first-
place votes, the second most
ever, and 1,662 points more
than second,place finisher,
Arkansas sophomore,
Darren McFadden, making
this year's race for the trophy
the second most lopsided
Heisman vote. Only O.J.
Simpson's 1,750-point victory
in 1968 was more one-sided.
Notre Dame quarterback
Brady Quinn took third in
the voting and West Virginia
running back Steve Slaton
rounded out the top four
spots.
Smith received 86.7 per-
cent of the first-place vote, a






WMS Students
of the week
12-11 to 12-15


record, and his point total of
2,540 places third in the
Heisman history behind
Simpson's impressive voting
score of 2,853 and that of
2005 Southern California
tailback Reggie Bush, who
had 2,541.
The 22-year-old Smith is
the first Ohio State player to
receive the award since
tailback Eddie George won in
1995. It is also the school's
seventh Heisman.
Ohio State's win toppled
the two straight USC victo-
ries that included Bush and
Matt Leinart.
Smith did not have an easy
ride at Ohio State. Only two
years ago, when he was a
freshman, the NCAA initi-
ated an investigation on Ohio
State and Troy Smith for tak-
ing $500 from an Ohio State
booster in the spring of 2004.
Ultimately, Smith had to sit
out a bowl game and miss the
first game of the 2005 season.
He heads into the BCS
championship game with a
record of 25-2 as quarterback
for the Buckeyes. Smith also
is the first quarterback to.
lead the Buckeyes to three
straight victories over rival
Michigan in 70 years.
Besides taking the top
honor in college football,
Smith also walked away this
year with the Walter Camp
Player of the Year award, the
Davey O'Brien award, and
was named Ohio State's Most
Valuable Player for the 2006
season.

Waves of progress



on beach nourishment


By DOTTY NIST
Two weeks into the re-
mainder of the western Wal-
ton County beach restoration
project, the expected 125-
feet-per-day progress is being
exceeded by 60 percent, ac-
cording to Brad Pickel.
Pickel, beach manage-
ment director for the South
Walton Tourist Development
Council (TDC), said that
about 200 feet of beach per
day are being restored on the
western end of Walton
County's coastline. Progress
has been aided by the lack of
mechanical or weather-re-
lated delays.


On Dec. 2, Walton County
was able to restart its first
large-scale beach restoration
project after a delay of ap-
proximately six months, us-
ing the same contractor,
Great Lakes Dredge & Dock.
The project is in partnership
with the city of Destin, where
approximately two miles of
coastline are to be restored,
probably beginning in early
April, according to Pickel.
Pickel said that at the re-
start initial work began in
the area of the Mediterranea
condominiums in Miramar
Beach, progressing east to
meet the area previously re-

DURING RESTORATION: A view of the same property
on Dec. 12, with much sand already in place south of the
Miramar Beach-area condominium property.


BEFORE RESTORATION: COSTA del Sol Condominiums
have long been one of Walton County's best examples of struc-
ture risk due to beach erosion. This photo shows the narrow
beach south of the condos in the state designated critically
eroded area as it appeared in early 2006.


stored. In May 2006, the half-
completed project was shut
down by federal. officials due
to the death of a fourth fed-
erally-protected sea turtle.
A smaller dredge, the
Dodge Island, is currently
being used due to the un-
availability of the Liberty Is-
land Dredge, the one used
before the hiatus.
Construction is underway
around the clock, with a load
of 2,200 cubic yards of sand
being transported from the
sand source area, Destin's
East Pass ebb shoal, on a
four-hour cycle, Pickel ex-
plained. Sand is pumped onto
the beach through a sub-
merged pipeline.
On Dec. 11, Pickel said
work was currently taking
place in the area of the Costa
del Sol condominiums and
expected to reach the
Frangista Beach area before
week's end.
At that point, 4,100 feet to
the west of Mediterranea will
remain to be restored in Wal-
ton County, he said.
The second week in Janu-
ary is the projected comple-
tion date for the Walton
County portion of the project.
Pickel anticipates that the
Destin portion will be com-
pleted before Memorial Day
2007.
The project is designed to
widen the beach by up to 125
feet, raise it by three to five
feet, and construct a dune of-
fering protection from an
eight-to-10-foot storm surge.
The total cost to restore'
the Walton County portion,
approximately five miles of
state-designated critically.
eroded beachfront, is about
$19.1 million, which is de-
rived from tourist bed tax col-
lections, state grants, and a
loan to be repaid by the TDC
from future bed tax collec-
tions.
Continually updated in-
formation on the restoration

Angels taken in by angels

By LEAH STRATMANN
Most everyone would agree that Christmas
is a special time for children. The joy and won-
derment on.the faces of children at this time :,
of year brings a smile to the faces of people
young and old.
Yet there are a number of children trapped
within the legal system and in foster homes
for which this time of year is just another re-
minder of how different their lives are from
others. Shari Hundley, director of Families -'i ";
First, estimates there are 150 children who .. 'k
have been removed from homes or otherwise '
constitute judicial cases this year. The names .
of those children, along with their Christmas '
wish lists, is what constituted the Angel Tree
at Silver Sands Factory Stores this year.
Last week members of Destiny Worship
Center "adopted" the remaining angels on the
tree and took the tree to their worship cen-
ter. The church will provide the location for
the party in which the children will receive
their gifts, including goody bags from Silver

THIS ANGEL TREE now devoid of names
was taken to Destiny Worship Center, who
adopted the remaining angels on the tree, and ,

HOUSING PROJECT to be located on J.W. Hollington Road east of Freeport.


Workforce housing



plan approved



unanimously


By DOTTY NST
"It's the proudest project
that I've ever stood in front
of you and asked you to ap-
prove," Lloyd Blue told the
Walton County. Board of
County Commissioners
(BCC) on Dec. 12.

With a grant deadline
looming, Blue, board of direc-
tors chairman for the Walton
County Workforce Housing
Corporation, and his board
members had been "under
the gun" since being ap-
pointed by the BCC in Sep-
tember,. creating conceptual
plans for a multiphase first-
of-its-kind development fo-
cusing on providing housing
for "essential personnel."
Jeff Sharkey, a consultant
for the private workforce
housing nonprofit, com-
mented that the group has
an excellent chance of being
selected to receive a $5 mil-
lion state grant that would
lower the cost of the initial
242 planned dwelling units
by $20,000 apiece. The grant
application is Dec. 15.
With the grant factored in,
the homes would be expected
to sell for $84,000 to


'$124,000. They are to be lo-
cated on a 393-acres parcel
surplussed by Regional Utili-
ties, located on J.W.
Hollington Road east of Free-
port. The project does not in-
volve any funding from
county tax dollars.
Sharkey noted that Wal-
ton County has in common
with Collier County, Palm
Beach County and others the
fact that there have been
high growth and high hous-
ing costs in recent years,
making it difficult for work-
ers to live in the community.
"We let explosive growth
and high costs catch us off
guard," Blue agreed, "but
we're trying to close that gap
in a hurry."
Eventually, over a five-
year period or more, there
will be the opportunity for
1,500 to 2,000 dwelling units
on the J.W. Hollington Road
property, Blue noted.
The initial phase consists
of 242 homes, a 40-acre
school site and a day care
center.
The conceptual plan was
approved as a planned unit
development (PUD.)
In addition, the commis-


sioners approved a memo-
randum of understanding in
support of the development
and a document of strategies
detailing avenues of assis-
tance to be provided by the
county through the planning
department.
One purpose of the latter
document, according to Pat
Blackshear, Walton County
planning and development
services director, is to en-
hance the nonprofit's ability
to receive the state grant.
Blue thanked both hiq
board members and county
staff for their efforts with the
workforce housing initiative.
"This is truly the
community's project and it
has been a community efr
fort," he said.
A decision on the state
grant is expected early next
year. While the grant fund,.
ing would reduce purchase
costs on the homes, plans ar4
for the'project to proceed re!
ga'dless.
"We appreciate the job you
did," County Commissioi
Chairman Ken Pridgen told
Blue.
"This is very important to
us," he added.

A post-Hurricane Dennis
seawall judged to be too far
seaward and ordered re-
moved by the state within 60
days remains in place as liti-
gation proceeds
The sheet pile seawall is
located at 4961 West CR-30A
in south Walton County.
State Department of En-
vironmental Protection
(DEP) documents denying
permits for seawalls and


other coastal armoring state
that applicants have the op-
tion to challenge the state
decision in an administrative
hearing.
The applicants did chal-
lenge the state's April 2006
decision in this instance, put-
ting the removal order "in
abeyance."
Last month DEP spokes-
person Sarah Williams said
she anticipated that a date
would be set for an adminis-


trative hearing on Nov. 30 if
the challenge had not been
dropped by that time or the
issue resolved. ,
On Dec. 8 she reported;
"The litigation for this denial
has again been held in 'abey-
ance' for a year."
What this means is that
the matter is "on-hold" and
that no hearing date will be
set for a year, Williams ex-
plained.

A dispute between some
Gulf Cemetery board mem-
bers and residents against a
proposed land grab plan by
developers is on hold until
March 20, 2007.
The dispute involves ap-
proximately 2.5 acres of the
cemetery that adjacent land-
owners want to convert into
a roadway.
developers Crystal Clear
Development Inc., Core De-
velopment Group LLC and
Tal Mar Development have
promised to make improve-


ments to the cemetery in ex-
change for the land.
Local citizens and cem-
etery plot owners Jasper I.
Dennison and Bill Freeze feel
that handing the property
over to a for-profit organiza-
tion is against the best inter-
ests of the cemetery.
Approximately eighty-
eight future burial plots
would be lost if the deal is
completed.
Testimony will begin at 9
a.m. in the Walton County
Courthouse in Defuniak

new member into the club,
Keir Breitenfeld. He was
sponsored by Dr. Priscilla
Fowler. Breitenfeld is the Sr.

tion the club now has 86
members.
, The second item of busi-
ness was of Past District Gov-
ernor Nancy Cummins pre-


senting a "Melvin Jones Fel-
low" to Lion Bob Burress.
This is the highest honor or
recognition that can be pre-
sented to a Lion from Lions'
Clubs International. Count-
ing Burress' addition, the
club now has 32 Melvin
Jones Fellow members plus
two nonmembers (spouses)
that have this recognition.

low Plaque and Pin to Lion
Russ Aldrich and the second
fellowship to Dr. Ron

ANGEL FROM FRONT
Sands.DeFuniak Springs resident Pam Rush has three fos-
ter children in her home whose names were on the tree. Rush
and her husband currently house five children under the age
of four in their home. Rush and her husband remodeled their
house to add space, giving them five bedrooms to accommo-
date a larger family. Two of the five children, all boys, were
former foster children adopted by Rush, and she is expecting
their first child, a girl, in February.
"I came from a big family and I think big families have
more fun," Rush said. Of her willingness to take on the chal-
lenges of foster parenting, Rush says she was born into it.
Her grandmother and several other family members were
either foster kids themselves or became foster parents, so she
grew up around the concept. The two foster children she
adopted, she had practically from birth, but she said she is
making sure they know they were adopted and has used books
about adoption to help them understand they were chosen to
become part of the family.
"My husband is pretty great with these kids. He's just a
big kid himself and he gets down on the floor with them,"
said the 28-year-old Rush who has been fostering children
for three years.
"Since the kids I have are small, I asked for educational
toys, books and music. These things can make a real differ-
ence in their development. We get an allowance to provide for
basic needs and clothing, but few luxuries, so these things
can make a huge difference for them," Rush noted.
"I get some strange looks when I'm out with the children,"
Rush says. "We have three races represented in my house
and they are all so close together in age that some people just
gawk at me," she laughed. Rush speculated her daughter's
potential suitors as a teenager will be closely scrutinized by
the band of big brothers.
The family expects to either adopt or have more children.
Rush says the need is great and this time of year, family pres-
sures often bring more children into the judicial system need-
ing care. With five children, Rush is at the maximum usually
allowed for one household, but in times of crisis may be asked
to look after a few more for a short term. "You get a lot of new
kids in the system around the holidays," Rush said.
Hundley says there aren't a lot of foster parents in Walton
County and the agency is always looking for more. For more
information on becoming a foster parent, call 892-8656.

SWCC holds annual meeting


By JEFFREY POWELL
The South Walton Com-
munity Council (SWCC) held
its eleventh annual meeting
on Wednesday Nov. 29.
In addition to electing new
board members, the council
presented the film "Water's
Journey: The Hidden Rivers
of Florida." The documentary
film examines the Floridan
Aquifer .that runs under-
ground throughout North-
west Florida.

"SWCC is doing a lot to
encourage water conserva-
tion," said.Seagrove resident


Alice Butela. "This was a
wonderful program, very edu-
cational and enlightening."
The SWCC advocates us-
ing more drought tolerant
plants when landscaping and
reducing sodded areas that
require regular irrigation.
The film pointed out that
eight billion gallons of water
are produced per day by the
Floridan aquifer. Unbridled
development and increased
storm water runoff have be-
come a threat to the water
supply that is so vital to hu-
man existence.
"I love what the SWCC is


doing," said South Walton
High School Environmental
Science Instructor Pat
Murphy. "Most people do not
have a healthy enough re-
spect for the subject."
Citizens wanting to see
evidence of the Floridan aqui-
fer for themselves should
visit one of the many springs
in the local area. Two great
examples are Ponce de Leon
Springs in Ponce de Leon and
Morrison Springs, just south
of Ponce de leon"We had great
attendance tonight," said
SWCC member Anita Page.
"The film was fun and infor-


mative, the subject is directly
relevant to our area."
After presenting the pro-
gram Page donated a copy of
"Water's Journey" to the
South Walton High School for
educational purposes.
New board -members
elected were Susan Bland,
Susan Home, Cindy McClary,
Bill Schultz and Sara
Steyerson.

the SWCC, visit

PONCE de LEON SPRINGS is an outflow of the Florida
aquifer.

Movie Review


"The Holiday" a romantic exchange of pace


By BRUCE COLLIER
The genre of "chick flicks"
is booming, thanks to
Hollywood's seemingly end-
less supply of beautiful young
Actors and actresses. "The
lIoliday," written and di-
re'cted by Nancy Meyers, is a
high-class specimen, well-
cast and romantically shot. A
charming cast of familiar
faces keeps the preposterous-
ness of the premise more or
less in the realm of the believ-
able.
Amanda and Iris, respec-
tively played by Cameron
Diaz and Kate Winslet, are on
the run from guy troubles.
American Amanda is a suc-
cessful maker of movie trail-
ers the kind that always
start with "In a world...." and
end with things blowing up.
British Iris is an editor at a
newspaper.
Amanda has just broken
up with her unfaithful boy--
friend a thankless role
played by Edward Burns. Iris*
is heartbroken when the un-
requited love of her life,
played by eternal bad guy
Rufus Sewell, announces his
engagement to another.
By chance, the two decide
to run off on a vacation. An
Internet encounter leads to
an exchange of living quar-
ters for the Christmas holi-
days. Iris makes her first trip
to Los Angeles and Amanda
heads for the wilds of Surrey.
If you can accept two per-
fect strangers agreeing to let
each other into their homes,
sight unseen, then the rest of
"The Holiday" will go down as
smooth as egg nog.
The women cocoon in their
respective hideaways. Iris
revels in the California sun-
shine and Amanda holes up
with wine, sweets, and a pile
of books. Fate and the screen-
writer take a hand, and nei-
ther woman is alone for long.
Amanda has an impetuous
fling with Graham, Iris' ap-
parently wayward brother,
played by Jude Law. Iris
meets two men, 90-something
Arthur Abbott, played by Eli
Wallach, and Miles, cheer-
fully played by a slimmed-
down Jack Black.
Arthur is a retired screen-
writer, an Oscar-winner from
the golden days of Hollywood.
Miles writes film scores.
While there's no fling for cau-
tious Iris, she befriends both
men.
Arthur charms her with
tales from the romantic old
days of Cary Grant and Irene


Dunne, and Miles makes her
laugh with his boyish zest for
music and composition.
"The Holiday" avoids mak-
ing each woman's story a mir-
ror of the other. Amanda and
Griaham seemed to hog. a
great "deal of'screen time. A
friend who saw the movie
with me suggested it was be-
cause Diaz and Law are more
"pretty" than Winslet and
Black. She may be right.
The film takes its time set-
ting up the relationships,
adding complications, and the
usual misunderstandings
that threaten to spell doom
for the main characters. How-
ever, take comfort in the fact
that no film titled "The Holi-
day" is likely to end badly.
This movie was reportedly
made with these four actors
in mind. British actors gen-
erally rise well above their
material, and "The IHoliday"
is no exception. Winslet and
Law are both capable of high
drama, and both have done


their share of "serious" films.
They convey just the right
balance of einotion and light-
ness, a skill beyond some
American emoters.
Diaz and Black are getting:
used to being grown up ac-


tors. Black is not usually
known for this kind of low-
key acting, and he seems to
enjoy the change. Diaz has
some trouble putting across

Throughout the
holiday season
Americans tend to
give a little more.
Why not keep that
spirit alive through-
out the year by giv-
ing of not only your
money, but your
time?

It seems at times we try to
avoid them by darting out
the opposite door of a depart-
ment store, or rush to get on
the cell phone so we don't feel
obligated to converse with
them.
I am referring to the Sal-
vation Army and the count-
less numbers of those who
donate their time throughout
the Christmas season, to
help those less fortunate.
They unselfishly give their
time away from their family
members, to ring the bells'
.and ask for spare change.
With all the hustle and
bustle of the, seasoii, Christ-
mas 'p'artid; gift buyingg'
church plays, cantatas and
concerts, school functions,
decorating, we tend to let the
thought of those less fortu-
nate sometimes slip away.
We get caught up in all our
holiday matters and issues,
and forget that there are
many who are just trying to
scramble enough change to
feed their families or to even
pay the power bill. Their ev-
eryday struggle seems to be
depressing so we just put
their situations on the back
burner until the season is
over.
Thankfully, there are still
those who make it their num-
ber one priority during this
time of year.
Several years back I wrote
the story about a good friend
of mine and what he did ev-
ery year for various charities
and his local foster parent
home. I am pleased to write
this year, he and his wife and
three boys, will once again be
taking in four foster children,
ages four, six, 10 and 12, for
the holidays.
They pick them up on Dec.
23 and take them to all the
family functions, plus give
them Santa at their home.
This is the same family that
Christmas of 2005, took his
entire medical staff (he and
his wife are both dentists)
and traveled to the Missis-
sippi Coast to open a tempo-

rary free dental facility for
those who had no insurance
or lost their insurance due to
Hurricane Katrina.
They saw more than 400
men, women and children
over a six day period of time.
During their stay, their three
boys also helped out with
preparing meals at the res-
cue missions and helped with
pet relocations.
There is a family that
thinks of everyone else, be-
fore settling in to their own
holiday routine, one that cen-
ters just around them.
I have heard of other "feel
good" stories that make the
holidays bright and make
those of us with very few
problems all the more thank-
ful and appreciative.
Though there is not a big
homelessness problem here
in Walton County, or any-
where along the coast, there
are those in need. From small
children, to the elderly, there
are needs to be met.
Many times these are sim-
ply emotional needs that can
be helped by offering your
tim, money or just a con-
cerned ear. It is surprising to
see just how much a person
can feel better, after they
open up.
This holiday season, make
sure the elderly have plenty
to eat, especially if they have
no local family. Also make
sure they have a warm place
to stay and conditions are fa-
vorable for them to remain in
their home, if not, open your
home to them if just for the
day.
With those families who
cannot afford Chrsitmas pre-
sents or a Christmas dinner,
open your heart, mind and
yes, even your pockets dur-
ing this time of the year.
There is nothing more excit-
ing than seeing a child's ex-
pression when he rips into a
gift.
If you can't give of your
money and things are even
tough on your homefront,
just give some time to volun-
teer and listen to those less
fortunate than you. It is a
chance to witness other
people's lives and what they
are going through.
So this Christmas, let your
time be your gift during this
holiday season and through-
out the new year. One day,
life's bad hand of cards might
be dealt against you and
those you helped in years
past, might return the favor
and come to your rescue.
