2006 Christmas Family


Joe Stanko family


By KRIS CHAVEZ
The DeFuniak Springs
Herald and The Beach
Breeze honor a family each
year who seem to embody
the spirit of Christmas
throughout the year.
Although never an easy
process, this Santa Rosa
Beach family exemplifies
that spirit all year long.
Joe and Jan Stanko
moved to Seagrove Beach
from Atlanta in 1996 after
retiring from IBM, where
they both worked for 32
years.
Joe, originally from
northern Ohio, was
proficient in HAMM radio
operations and electronics
by the time he graduated
from high school, and
credits that knowledge with
allowing him to get his foot
thr0.u'th the door at IBM.
"At the age of 18, I began
working for IBM in
Youngstown, Ohio," said
Joe. "They were impressed
with my HAMM radio and
electronic skills. Over time,
through the company's
tuition refund program, I
earned a B.A. at Kent State
University, majoring in
industrial relations. I
remained with IBM for 32
years."
Jan is from southern
California and began her
career with IBM as a
secretary with only a couple
of years of college. "I was
blessed with opportunities
and mentors throughout my
career," says Jan. "They
helped me gain the skills
and confidence to pursue
my dream job of helping to
groom the future leaders of
IBM."
Jan admits, "Before
retiring and moving to
Seagrove Beach, I had
never lived in a small town.
I was amazed at how ,
friendly everyone was. It
was easy to get involved in
all sorts of things. Shortly
after we moved here, a
former neighbor from
Atlanta, Pat Eisenmann,
asked us if we would like to
volunteer at an art festival
at Eden State Gardens


called ArtsQuest. That was
ten years ago, and the
people we met volunteering
at that festival are still
among our best friends
today and are the most
talented, creative people we
know in the area."
For the Stankos, "all
sorts ofithings" is quite a
list. Joe is presently vice
president of the
Experimental Aircraft
Association (EAA) of
Panama City; marketing
director for Grit & Grace; a
cast member in the Grit &
Grace Road Show
Ensemble; a member of the
board of director of Friends
of Eden; and, is past
president of the Cultural
Arts Association.
Jan volunteers at Sacred
Heart Hospital where she is
vice president of the Sacred
Heart Hospital Guild. "By
far, the most rewarding
opportunity I've had is
volunteering at Sacred
Heart Hospital. Since
forming the Guild four
years ago, we have raised
over $125,000 for
scholarships and capital
projects for Sacred Heart,"
said Jan.
She is also a member of
the Seagrove Garden Club;
a master gardener; and
volunteers regularly at The
Fig Leaf Gift Shop at Eden
State Gardens and at the
ArtsQuest Fine Arts
Festival each May. From
2003 to 2005, Jan
spearheaded the Beaujolais
Nouveau Wine Festival
fundraiser for Sacred Heart
Hospital Guild and drew
record attendance. She and
Joe are members of St.
Rita's Catholic Church and
each year co-host the
Seagrove Charity
Christmas Ball benefiting
Caring and Sharing.
Joe and Jan agree that
their most rewarding
position is that of
grandparents to four
grandchildren. Joe's son,
Chris, is a marketing rep
for IBM in Atlanta, and has
two sons, Stephen, 16, and
Christian, 13. Joe's


daughter, Karen, earned a
Ph.D. in microbiology and
lives with daughters, Emily
10, and Sarah 6, in
Knoxville, Tennessee.
Jan said, "We don't get to
see the grandkids as much
as we'd like, but we do
capture them for a week or
so during school breaks and
we always enjoy the quality
time without interruption.
That's a grandparent's
dream come true."
Joe agrees and says, "It's
a grandparent's duty to
display morals and ethics
and to teach their
grandkids to be self-
propelled. One of my
grandsons earned money
busing tables and improved
his grades with dedicated
study time while he was
visiting during summer
break. We have fun, too. We'
go fishing, participate in
local events, and enjoy life
at the beach."
When not spoiling four
grandchildren, Jan enjoys
gourmet cooking, flower
arranging and admits to
being "star struck" when
she sees movies stars. "That
comes from my early
California roots," she says.
"I grew up 20 miles from
Hollywood and was always
star gazing." The usually
talkative Jan recalls being
tongue-tied when she and
Joe crossed paths with Dick
Van Dyke in an airport VIP
hospitality room. "The star I
would most like to meet,"
says Jan with a big smile,
"is Rod Stewart." Rock on,
Jan.
Joe's passions include
wood carving and
experimental airplanes. He
carves sea birds from
targua nuts, known as poor
man's ivory, and has won
many awards for his
creations. He developed his
passion for airplanes at the
age of 12, "Every day I ....

would ride my bicycle to a
nearby grass air strip and
watch the planes take-off
and land. I was fascinated,"
he said. Today, he fulfills
that passion through his
involvement with the Sandy
Creek Chapter of the
Experimental Aircraft
Association, serving as vice
president and helping to
facilitate the B-17 and B-52
Flying Fortress Exhibit at
Panama City Airport.
"I also enjoy reading
mystery novels," said Joe,
"So much, in fact, that I
recently purchased the
entire 48-book Nero Wolfe
mystery collection of The
Rex Stout Library." He is a
founding member of the
local Beach Hounds
Chapter of the Sherlock
Holmes Society and says,
"The Sherlockians, as they
are called, have 844
registered members around
the world."
As for their philosophy
on life, Joe says, "You will
become what you think
about most of the time."
And Jan, "Whatever you
give to others, you get back
ten-fold." When asked the
secret to the success of their,
18-year marriage, they
respond in unison,
"Communicate,

home decal changes annu-
ally. The 2007 decal is
green, centered with a
smaller yellow decal, which
shows the month and year of
expiration. These should not
be confused with the perma-
nent Real Property (RP) mo-


bile home decals, which are
black and not renewed annu-
ally.
Renewal notices were
mailed to each mobile home
owner in October. Owners
who did not receive a renewal
notice or need more informa-
tion should contact the Wal-
ton County Tax Collector's
Office at 850-892-8121, or
visit the website at
www.waltontaxcollector.com.
If eligible, mobile home

is the PIN number which
appears on renewal notices.

dling fee imposed on all
online transactions.
Tax Collector's offices will
be closed for the Christmas

the New Year's holiday on
Monday, Jan.1.
Mobile home owners are
encouraged to send in their
payments by mail or make
them online at

THE DeF


My Long Christmas Party
EDITORIAL BYBRUCE COLLIER


I went to college at Wright
State University in Dayton,
Ohio, where I majored in the-
ater, graduating in 1977.
Those of you who attended
college and had anything to
do with the "theater majors"
probably formed an opinion of
them. Phrases like "self-cen-
tered," "spooky," and "unem-
ployable" probably come to
mind. Most of these have
some basis in fact, especially
regarding the acting stu-
dents, and especially the un-
employable part.
Still, we were a tight-knit
group, with friendships made
across the usual boundaries
of age, gender, and race. In
theater, the only true preju-
dice is against those who
want the same role you want.
Around 1975, a friend I'll
call Sandy invited a group of
us to her grandmother's home
in Dayton for a Christmas
party. The house was small,
but much better furnished
than the bomb shelters we
called apartments. There was
also a piano, and for reasons
known only to the Almighty,
Grandma loved being around


young people. It being col-
lege, we brought our own
everything, and we sang
Christmas carols, ate, and
partied into the morning
light.
Amazingly, Sandy's
grandmother invited us back
next year. And the next.
Sandy's grandmother's
house became the place to be
at Christmas, if you were in
Dayton.
We graduated, and many
of us, including myself,
moved away. I went to New
York and lived there four
years, then to New Orleans
for ten. Other friends moved
to California, New Mexico,
Chicago, Texas, and else-
where. One guy even joined
the Army.
Sandy moved, and the
party site changed. A guy I'll
call Mark took it over, then
two other guys hosted it at
their mother's beautifully-re-
stored farmhouse in the
country. As we got older, we
showed up better-dressed
and carrying classier bever-
ages, driving our own ve-
hicles, and bringing sweet-


hearts, wives, husbands, and
pictures of kids (the parties
were always :grown-ups
only).
It became known as the
Wright State Theater Christ-
mas Party, and people who
had only been in the depart-
ment briefly would occasion-
ally show up. People who
couldn't come would call and
talk to everyone.
Dr. Bassett (his real
name), chairman of the de-
partment, pestered us for
mailing addresses, then e-
mailing addresses, and even
published and circulated a
newsletter keeping us in-
formed. It took work, it took
writing, it took phone calls,
but there were always a
handful who would not lose
touch, even when people be-
gan dying off. Heart disease,
cancer, AIDS, an Army heli-
copter accident; even a homi-
cide, all thinned our ranks.
They're getting thinner ev-
ery year. One year, only three
people showed up for the
party.
Still, they have continued,
without interruption, for


some 31 years. Most of us
don't do much theater, or
do it as a hobby or for ex-
tra cash. We have become,
variously, doctors, lawyers,
teachers, therapists, sales-
people, business owners,
and in: ne notorious case,
a newspaper writer.
I've missed the party for
several years now, mostly
because my schedule
couldn't accommodate it.
However, this year, my
friends are getting to-
gether at a restaurant on
a date I will be able to go. I
also know that when I
walk in, someone will greet
me by my, college nick-
name, there will be hugs
all around, and just the
right balance of catching
up and looking back that
has made this, at least in
my mind, the Christmas
Party.

If you have one of these
yourself, be thankful, and
work hard to keep it going.
If not, start your own tra-
dition' this year, and have
a Merry Christmas to boot.


News Fo m th 6a 0itol


(AP) REPUBLICAN
GOV.-ELECT Charlie Crist
on Tuesday named his prede-
cessor as attorney general,
Democrat Bob Butterworth,
to head the state's social ser-
vices agency, which has been
beleaguered by scandal.
Crist is turning over the
Department of Children &
Families to one of the state's
most respected Democrats.
Butterworth served as attor-
ney general for 16 years be-,
fore being forced out by term
limits in 2002, when Crist
was elected.
Butterworth acknowl-
edged that his new job won't
be easy, given that the agency
deals with the most difficult
problems facing families. He
called the people who work at
the agency heroes.
"It probably is perhaps the
most rewardingjob, the most
demandingjob that you know
when you're going into it
you're probably not going to
do all you want to do, but you
want to move the ball as far
forward as you can for the
children and the people,"
Butterworth sAid.
"What greater role is there
for government than to pro-
tect the people of the state,
especially the children?" he
added.
Butterworth, 64, is now dean
of St. Thomas University Law
School in Miami. He has also
been a Bioward County pros-
ecutor, judge and sheriff,
mayor of Sunrise and head of
the state's Department of
Highway Safety and Motor
Vehicles.
However, he lost a 2002
state. Senate race to Republi-
can JeffAtwater.
He earned a reputation-
early on for taking on tough
challenges. On his way to
prominence, Butterworth be-
came his party's fireman of
sorts, taking jobs where there
were problems or political
turmoil.
"Somebody who is ap-
pointed to head this impor-
tant agency has to have great
intellect, great integrity and
great compassion. Bob
Butterworth has all three in
an extraordinary amount,"
Crist said. "He's done this
kind of thing over and over
again. He's a fixer."
Butterworth will replace
Lucy Hadi, who was the
agency's third secretary un-
der Gov. Jeb Bush. She de-
cided she didn't want to keep
the job in Crist's administra-
tion, after she was fined
$80,000 on a contempt of
court charge for failing to re-
move mentally ill inmates
from a jail as required by law.
She denied her resignation
was linked to that and is chal-
lenging the charge.
Hadi replaced Jerry


Regier, who left DCF after he
and several top aides ac-
cepted favors from contrac-
tors doing business with the
agency. Bush's first appoin-
tee, Kathleen Kearney,
served nearly four years, but
resigned shortly before
Bush's 2004 re-election fol-
lowing the disappearance of
a 5-year-old Miami girl, Rilya
Wilson, in the state's foster
care system., Crist and
. Butterworth joked when a
reporter asked why he gave
the state's hardest job to a
Democrat instead of a Re-
publican. "You're not a
Democrat?" said
Butterworth, turning to
Crist in mock surprise.
"You're not a Republican?"
Crist said back.
By BRENDAN
FARRINGTON, Associated
Press Writer

(AP) -- A SAMPLING
OF PROBLEMS experienced
by the state in its contracts
with private sector providers
of governmental services.
2006 DepartmentiofCor-
rections Secretary James
Crosby is fired by Gov. Jeb
Bush in February and pleads
guilty in July to a federal
charge of accepting kick-
backs from a subcontractor.
The Department of Chil-
dren & Families restored a
$100 million contract with a
private, nonprofit contractor
hired to oversee foster care
and work with families in
crisis in southwest Florida.
2005.- Chris Card, a confi-
dante of Gov. Jeb Bush and
a member of his transition
team for both terms, re-
signed as director of
Hillsborough Kids Inc.,
which oversees foster care
and adoptions for the De-
partment of Children &
Families in the Tampa area.
He accepted tickets to pro
sporting events from compa-
nies doing business with the
state: Robert Israel, a top
official of the company hired
to run the state's child wel-
fare program in Broward
County violated conflict-of-
ihterest rules by helping
steer a $305,000 educational
contract to his wife's em-
ployer, an inspector general's
investigation concluded.
2004 The State Technol-
ogy Office canceled two mul-
timillion-dollar contracts af-
ter investigations discovered
two companies were given
unfair advantages, including
a $47 million contract with
Accenture to manage com-
puter applications.
Department of Children &
Families Secretary Jerry
Regier resigned after an in-
vestigation showed he took
favors from contractors. An
audit by the governor's in-


spector general concluded he
and two of his top aides ac-
cepted gifts from companies
holding large DCF contracts.
Former State Technology
Office head Kim Bahrami
went to work for
BearingPoint, a company she
awarded a controversial
$126 million contract, later
investigated by the Florida
Department of Law Enforce-
.ment. 2003 Investigators
siid Lottery Secretary David
Griffin broke ethics codes by
accepting gifts of food from
companies doing business
with the department.
(AP) -- IN A DIRECT AF-
FRONT to the Bush admin-
istration, a Democratic sena-
tor spent an hour Wednesday
with Syrian President
Bashar Assad in Damascus,
asking him to do more to sta-
bilize Iraq.
Sen. Bill Nelson of
Florida, a member of the
Armed Services'and Foreign
Relations committees, met
with Assad after the State
Department said that it dis-
approved of his trip. The
United States has limited
diplomatic ties with Syria
because of its support of
Hezbollah and Hamas,
which the U.S. deems terror-
ist organizations, and Presi-
dent Bush has expressed re-
luctance to seek help from
Damascus on Iraq until the
Syrians curb that support
and reduce their influence in
Lebanon.
Assad "clearly indicated a
willingness to cooperate" in
controlling its border with
Iraq, Nelson told reporters in
a conference call following
the meeting. The U.S. says
foreign fighters often enter
Iraq across that boundary.
Nelson said he reported
the information to embassy
officials and will. brief his
congressional committees on
the trip. He said he expects
Sens. John Kerry, D-Mass.,
Christopher Dodd, D-Conn.,
and Arlen Specter, R-Pa., to
also visit Syria.
The diplomatic push from
Congress comes on the heels.
of a recommendation by a bi-
partisan panel that the U.S.
engage Iran and Syria on the
war in Iraq. Bush has re-
mained cool to the proposal
by the Iraq Study Group,
which was led by former Sec-
retary of State James A.
Baker III and former Rep.
Lee Hamilton, D-Ind.
Nelson said he ultimately
received logistical- support
from the State Department
in what he called a "fact-find-
ing trip" across the Middle
East, being transported by
embassy officials from


Jordan's capital city of
Amman to Damascus.
Prior to heading to Dam-
ascus, Nelson met with top
Israeli and Palestinian of-
ficials; in coming days, he
plans to visit Qatar, Saudi
Arabia, Bahrain and Iraq.
Nelson said he was not
interested visiting Iran "at
this time" and did not say
why.
However, the senator
did say that raised the .s-
sue of a nuclear-armed '
Iran to Assad, saying "he ,
ought to understand that
that's not only a threat to
him, Syria, but to the en-
tire world. He took
note," Nelson said.
The senator said he also
expressed to the Syrian
leader the problems
caused by Hezbollah and
Hamas and urged Assad to
support the release of cap-
'tured Israeli soldiers.
Nelson said the Syrian
president responded by
saying Israel had 20 Syr-
ians in captivity, one of
whom died recently from
leukemia.
The senator shrugged off
suggestions he was chal-
lenging Bush's authority
by sidestepping adminis-
tration policy that the U.S.
have no contact with Syr-
ian officials.
"I have a constitutional
role as a member of Con-
gress," Nelson said.
Meanwhile, Bush criti-
cized Damascus anew and
called on it to free all po-
litical prisoners.
In a statement, the
president expressed sup-
port for the Syrian people,
and said they "deserve a
government whose legiti-
macy is grounded in the
consent of the people, not
brute force." '
The U.S.-backed govern-
ment in Lebanon led by
Prime Minister Fuad
Saniora is being chal-
lenged by the Hezbollah-
led, pro-Syrian opposition.
Bush said Syria should
disclose.the fate of the.
many missing Lebanese
citizens who disappeared
following their arrest in
Lebanon during decades of
Syrian military occupa-
tion.

"The Syrian regime
should immediately free
all political prisoners, in-
cluding Aref Dalila, Michel
Kilo, Anwar al-Bunni,

Paxton Town Council looks forward to growth


By BRUCE COLLIER
Community growth was on
the minds of some Paxton
Town Council members, who
met for the last regular
monthly meeting of 2006 on
Dec. 12. Present were Bobby
Kemp, Ann Sexton, Bill
McRae, Jenice Armstrong,
Joe Melton, and Mayor
Wanda Smith. The meeting
was called to order at 7:05
p.m.
Following routine busi-
ness, the council heard a first
reading of an ordinance con-
taining new water rates for
schools only.
Property owner Gill Taylor
addressed the council, re-
questing voluntary annex-
ation of his property at 185
Lake Road to the town. Tay-
lor said that he wanted to
avail himself of the advan-
tages of being in the town,
including services and voting
rights. "It's easier dealing
with the city than the county,"
on issues of land use, he
added.
Taylor said he has not en-
countered opposition from the


neighbors he has approached,
but is still completing the vol-
untary annexation applica-
tion papers.
Taylor piqued the council's
interest with a proposal that
he might be able to assist
Paxton in applying for a pro-
gram by which the town
could get free military labor
for various civil engineering
projects. Taylor is a civil en-
gineer and retired from the
Air Force. The military sup-
plies the labor in order to give
its personnel hands-on build-
ing experience. Communities
must apply and be accepted
for the program.
An audience member who
supported the annexation
asked the council to consider
"how big do you want Paxton
to be?"
McRae expressed his opin-
ion that "it's a good idea to
annex as much as we can."
McRae added that military
labor program would be an
excellent opportunity to im-
prove the town's infrastruc-


City attorney Loriane Bytell
offered to look over Taylor's
application for annexation,
saying that getting 100 per-
cent approval of his neighbor-
ing landowners would
"streamline" the process.
Another audience member
asked what the city had to of-
fer. The council answered that
water rates would be lower,
and that certain tax benefits
and school fund grants are
keyed to population size.
"We have an excellent op-
portunity to start things,"
said McRae.
"They really don't care all
that much about the north
part of the county," said an
attendee, not specifying who
he meant.

Taylor submitted his ap-
plication package to Bytell for
her review. The annexation
application would be pre-
sented to the council at a
regular or special meeting.
The mayor and city attor-
ney had no reports to make.
In departmental reports,


Bronson announces,


Melton said that the water
tower colors would be the
same as, before, and pre-
sented quotes for pumping
station pumps and motors,
which the council voted to
purchase.
A time schedule for meter
reading, billing, and discon-
necting water services was


discussed, as were public re-
quests to pay water bills us-
ing credit debit cards, as well
as service charges for such a
system.
Armstrong reported that
the city had purchased a
vacuum cleaner. McRae said
that the ballfield lights would
be finished by the end of

Wildfire danger is increasing


Florida Agriculture and Rel
Consumer Services Commis- percel
sioner Charles H. Bronson is two v
asking the public to be care- strong
ful with all outdoor fires this ponen
holiday season.
"Florida has recieved be-
low-normal amounts of pre-
cipitation through the fall
months, and freezing tem- ,
peratures in the northern
part of the state have left
much of our wildlands vul-
nerable to wildfire," Bronson
said. "The freeze dried veg-
etation will only add to the
already accumulated debris
that is still scattered across
Florida from the 2004 and
2005 hurricane seasons."

native humidity below 35

"Any fire that starts during
these weather conditions

spread quickly," said Bronson

Florida 2060: A Population
Distribution Scenario for the
State of Florida, was pre-
pared by the University of
Florida's GeoPlan Center. It
projects that if current devel-
opment patterns continue,
roughly seven million addi-
tional acres of Florida land
will be converted from rural
to urban uses. This will in-
clude approximately 2.7 mil-
lion acres agricultural lands
and another 2.7 million acres
of native habitat. Addition-
ally, a "sea of urbanization"
will surround much of today's
protected conservation lands
unless alternative develop-
ment patterns are promoted.
According to the study, if
current development pat-

DeSoto, Hendry and
Glades counties are expected
to experience the most dra-

the next fifty years as they go
from largely rural to largely
urban in character. The. re-
sult will be an almost con-
tinuous urban strip linking
Ft. Myers to West Palm

Duval County is projected
to be completely built out
sometime after 2040, and by
2060 its population is antici-
pated to spill out into Nassau,
Clay, St. Johns and Baker

their rural character.
Only the Panhandle and
Big Bend are projected to re-
tain significant areas of open
space, and this is only if cur-
rent growth and development
patterns continue.

titled A Time for Leadership:

Its' Christmas again. How do I know?
The town is glowing with holiday fare,
There is a cold front approaching,
a chill in the air.
Hurry! Make ready!
Balance your checkbook,
Stretch your budget and go!

Buy all those gifts you can't afford.
Tie them with ribbons
or tie them with cord.
Which will be kept? Which will go back?
Better be careful, keep the tag and the sack!
Stock up on turkeys and cranberry sauce.
Count this all pleasure?
No! Count this as loss!

Who shall I buy for? How much shall I pay?
Who shall I dine with on Christmas Day?

Freeport considers Workforce Housing issues


By BEN GRAFTON
Dawn Moliterno, presi-
dent/CEO and Rick
Severence of the Walton
County Chamber of Com-
merce made a presentation to
the Freeport City Council at
its December 12 meeting,
about the Chamber's newly
established Walton County
Workforce Housing Resource
Center. This facility is de-
signed to be a resource cen-
ter for developers, contrac-
tors, potential residents, phil-
anthropic organizations and
other interested parties about
workforce housing issues in
the county. The Freeport was
asked to provide financial
support to cover some of the
operating costs of the Re-
source Center. The Council
noting that a very tight bud-
get is in place and that they
have not had the opportunity
to study the material pro-
vided took the request under
advisement and will provide


a response at a later date.
In a separate, unrelated
presentation, Lloyd Blue,
chairman of the board of the
Walton County Workforce
Housing Corporation asked
the Council to approve a
memorandum of understand-
ing between the Freeport city
government and the corpora-
tion that sets forth points of
agreement including qualifi-
cations of potential buyers of
housing units the Corpora-
tion may provide, the dona-
tion of fifty acres near the
project site for a future sewer
treatment plant and provi-
sion for payments of utility
tap and impact fees to the city
at the time of closing on pur-
chase of these housing units.
The Council approved the
memorandum.
In other business, Freeport
City Planner Latilda
Henninger presented a re-
view of an application by
Okloosa Gas for the construc-


tion of a building on two acres
in the Freeport Industrial
Park. Dave Underwood, of
Okaloosa Gas, said that the
facility would have a small
staff of a supervisor and tech-
nicians. Underwood said the
company was already accept-
ing customers who were.lo-
cated close to their transmis-
sion lines. Henninger said
there were no outstanding
issues. The council approved
the application.
Henninger then presented
a proposal for the Enclave
Subdivision, represented at
the meeting by Emerald
Coast Engineering Associ-
ates, for a 31 lot subdivision
of custom homes on 5.7 acres
south of Castle Branch Road.
The Freeport Planning Board
recommends approval of this
proposal subject to receipt of.
an acceptable street light
plan. The Council approved
the application subject to ac-
ceptance of the street light


plan.
The Council then approved
the application of the Cross-
ings Subdivision for a 52 unit
development with an appro-
priate recreation area on 35
acres north of Piney Point
Road.
Henninger introduced
George Russell, a member of
an Institute for Senior Profes-
sionals (ISP) committee,
which is assisting Freeport
with the preparation of its
state-mandated Evaluation
and Assessment Report
(EAR). These reports must be
submitted once every five
years.
Russell said that the Wal-
ton County EAR, which is
essential to the preparation
of Freeport's EAR, has been
adopted by the Board of
County Commissioners
within the last few days. The
ISP team will review each el-
ement in Freeport's Compre-
hensive Plan and determine


whether or not practices be-
ing followed achieve the goals
of the plan. Alternative solu-
tions to problems will be iden-
tified. Several public work-
shops are scheduled to pro-
vide public input about issues
and recommendations. In its
report Walton County identi-
fied 31 critical issues. Given
the difference in size, Free-
port expects to identify five or
six critical issues.
The Council adopted an
annexation ordinance for the
Cornerstone property after
the second reading of the or-
dinance was presented by
City Attorney Clayton
Adkinson.
City Engineer Charles Pe-
ters reported that phase II of
the sewer work on Bay Loop
road is complete and that a
start-up schedule has been
set.
Peters then reported that


phase I of the BayArea sewer
project was complete. Phase
II in the Old Jolly Bay area
is moving ahead. The prob-
lem of a sewer crossing at
River Walk is still unresolved
and Peters will meet with
Mayor Mickey Marse about
these issues.
Peters said that the test-
ing of automatic valves on
water tank #3 is scheduled.
Councilman Ray Jackson
reported that the slab for the
new maintenance building
has been poured and that
construction of the building
will start after the first of the
new year.
The Council approved a
new contract with Jones and
Phillips Associates for grant
administration in the coming
year. Bob Jones said the con-
tract provisions were identi-
cal to those in the current
agreement.

Pickett prevails on appeal: No sale for Nacoochee Corp.


By BRUCE COLLIER
A three-judge panel of the
Florida District court of Ap-
peal for the First District has
ruled in favor of Diane
Pickett in the appeal of
Nacoochee v. Pickett. The case
was tried in February of 2005
before Walton County Circuit
Court Judge William Stone.
Stone rendered his decision
in the case in June of 2005,
and both parties appealed.
The District Court's 10-page
opinion was filed Dec. 6.
The dispute arose from a
contract for purchase and
sale of some 1,400 acres of
property, known as Pickett's
Crossing. Nacoochee Corp. is
an assignee of the original
contractual purchaser, Eagle
Land Group.
The original contract


called for Eagle to purchase
1,398.28 acres at $2,600 per
acre, for a total of $3,635,500.
The contract also called for
deposit of earnest money in
two installments, one for
$20,000 and the other for
$100,000, at specified times.
Eagle eventually assigned its
contract rights to Nacoochee.
When property. surveys
commissioned by the pur-
chaser revealed that the
property contained 776.86
acres of wetlands, Nacoochee
offered a price of $1.7 million,
based on purchase of the up-
lands only, but expected to
receive title to the full tract
of land. When Pickett refused,
Nacoochee offered to pay $1.7
million in cash, and asked
Pickett to accept a mortgage
for $1.9 million, a total of $3.6
million in all.
Pickett also learned that


neither earnest money de-
posit had been made.
Nacoochee offered to make
both earnest money pay-
ments, but Pickett declared
the contract to be terminated.
A lawsuit followed, with
Nachoochee seeking specific
performance and Pickett
seeking cancellation and re-
scission.
Following a bench trial,
Stone ruled that Pickett must
sell the land -to Nacoochee,
but at a price of $3,646,500,
which was for 1,402.5 acres,
the actual acreage surveyed,
at $2,600 per acre.
Both parties, dissatisfied
with the trial court's decision,
appealed and cross-appealed.
In reviewing both the find-
ings of fact and interpretation
of the contract, the appellate
court agreed that the contract
did not permit reduction of

^^i3g|@^B


price based on wetlands.
However, the appellate court
found that Nacoochee's fail-
ure to timely deposit the ear-
nest money and its refusal to
close the sale for cash, were
all "material" breaches of the
contract, and that Nacoochee
was not entitled to specific
performance.
"A material breach by one
party may be considered a
discharge of the other party's
obligation thereunder," said
the court.
The appellate court re-
versed the trial judge's order
and remanded the case for
judgment in favor of Pickett.
Pickett's lead counsel
Donald Partington said "Ob-
viously we're pleased with the
decision. The [appellate]
court basically accepted our
argument and rejected theirs.
It's a very straightforward
opinion."
Reached in Hawaii, Pickett
commented, "That Eagle did
not land. I feel very happy


with [the decision]."
Pickett added that she has
a "long list of prospective
purchasers," for the property,
but intends to retain about
200 acres from the total
1,400 in any future sale.
"It's the best Christmas
present I've ever had, or ever


will have," she said.
SPartington said that
Nacoochee has 15 days un-
til Dec. 21 to file a request
for a rehearing by the district
court.
Attorneys for Nacoochee
could not be reached for com-
ment by press time.

MIKE ROSE, OWNER of Game Addicts, shares his pas-
sion for gaming with his new store.


By ROBIN NEWTON
There's a new game in
town, or more correctly: a new
game place. Mike Rose has
opened Game Addicts, a video
gamer's dream. The store is
located in the Joe Dan
Trotman complex at the top
of the Winn Dixie Shopping
Center, next to WDSP.
Rose has enjoyed video
gaming since he was a small
child and has turned his pas-
sion into a great place for
young and old to spend time.
The new store. is..flled with
new and used games, game
systems, and accessories.
Game Addicts offers a place
to play games on all systems,
both in the store, ad online.
Visitors can buy and trade
new and used games, sys-
tems, and accessories and
Game Addicts is the only
store in Florida that takes
classic video systems and
games. Trade-ins receive
store credit.
There is a fee for in-store
play and gamers can play any
used game in .the store for
XBox, PS2, Game Cube, and
XBox 360.
Tournaments are held ev-
ery other weekend on various
'systems and games. The win-
ner of a tournament held the
day before, Nintendo Wii was
available, received the brand
new system just after mid-
night. An NCAA Tournament
will be held on December 30.
Rose's 'play and trade'
policy is a big hit with par-
ents and gamers because it
alleviates the problem of fill-
ing the house with games
that have been mastered.
Game Addicts is open ev-
ery day. Games and more in-
formation can be found on
the website
www.gameaddictsllc.com.

FREEPORT COMMUNITY NATIVITY SCENE ENCOURAGED BY FIRST WEEKEND


EARY E N PT st t s

EARLY EVENING PARTICIPANTS set the stage at Freeport's community living nativity scene.


HE WANTS YOU!
John Fogarty has a costume just your size
for this weekend's living nativity scene in
Freeport.


By BRUCE COLLIER
The premiere of the Freeport community "living" nativity
scene last weekend at Hammock Bay gave organizers reason
to be optimistic.
Coordinator John Fogarty, wife Janet, daughter Lauren and
a team of volunteer workers said they had a "pretty good"
opening night last week, and hoped that word of mouth would
increase participation this weekend.
The nativity scene is not affiliated with a single church,
but is an attempt to encourage inter-church participation, and
give volunteers a chance to dress up and join in.
Fogarty asked everyone to come dressed as shepherds, wise
men, Roman soldiers, and anything else they thought would
be suitable, as well as for "gentle" livestock to create the look
of a Bethlehem manger. "This is a partof worship," he said.
The manger itself is made of rough branches, woven with
pine tree branches and lit by a star on a high pole. The scene
sits in the middle of a field on the Hammock Bay property on
Hwy. 20 near Freeport.
Would-be participants who do not have period garb can drop
by a tent on the property, where the coordinators have a rack
of costumes, as well as coffee and doughnuts, before proceed-
ing to the manger.
The nativity scene continues this weekend, Dec. 21, 22, and
23, from 6 9 p.m. For details, call John Fogarty at 835-9824.

A gift of memories


By ROBIN NEWTON

Christmas is almost here
and there is still time to give
a gift that requires little in
the way of funds or supplies
and only some thinking on
the part of the giver. It is the
perfect gift for parents,
grandparents, and others
who insist they need nothing
new. The gift is a Journaling
Jar.
In general, the Journaling
Jar is a container that holds
small slips of paper upon
which are written a variety
of questions. Questions can
be typed or hand-written pa-
per and then and cut or torn
into small strips. You can get
really creative and use those
fancy-edged scissors, colored
paper, and a decorative font.
A purchased blank journal or
a binder with notebook paper
should accompany the jar so
the recipient has a place to
write their answers. Again,
more creative gift-givers can
color-coordinate questions
and pages for answers and
divide the notebook into sec-
tions with a variety of titles
such as: 'family,' 'friends' or
'growing up.'


The Gall Berry Christmas


By WILMA N. WEEKLY
In the early eighties, I took
a one-year leave from my job
in Seattle. My three children
and I were in Laurel Hill, so
my children could get to know
my people.
When Christmas came,
money was too tight for pre-
sents. Even worse, there was
to be no tree. At very least,
there had to be a tree.
A day or so before Christ-
mas, the four of us went mer-
rily off into our woods look-
ing for a tree. It was a beau-
tiful afternoon and we were
having great fun traipsing in
the woods. Time got away


from us with still no tree.
Fear of being lost in the
woods after dark came sud-
denly upon me and I quickly
decided to cut the first thing
slightly resembling a tree. I
openly admit it had tiny
leaves instead of needles, but
it had a good shape and was
a good size for me to carry.

When I got it home, my
daddy had a good laugh.
Didn't I know a gall berry
when I saw one? I certainly
knew about the gall berry
from my childhood. With no
peach tree, the gall berry had
provided the keen little


switches used to remind me
of proper behavior. Oh, how
those switches could sting!
I decorated the bush with
some reservation. They deco-
rate palm trees, don't they?
Why not decorate a gall
berry?
Thanks to my people, there
were gifts under the tree on,
Christmas morning. Later, I
humbly thanked the gall
berry for graciously giving me
a different memory of its use
than those of my childhood
recollections. That is how we
came to have a Gall Berry
Christmas.

ferent topics, too. "How much

A Flurry
of Trumpets

A flurry of trumpets
down Bethlehem way,
sounded for the baby,
in the manger that day.

The angels in heaven,
flew down from the sky,
telling the whole world
a Savior was nigh!

Shepherds in the fields
were amazed at the
sight.
A star guided them,
on that glorious night!

Mary and Joseph
in that humble place,
stood watching the baby
gazing at His face!

A flurry of trumpets,
With angels in air,
will.bring peace and joy,
to the world everywhere!

Listen to their message,
on this Christmas day,
The Baby in Bethlehem
has shown us the way!

By Mary Ann Whiddon


This writer received one a
couple of years ago and it is,
by no means, finished. My
daughter has had to print out
more answer pages because
I tend to be a bit wordy at
times and she also filled the
jar with well over 100 ques-
tions (and I think she has
been secretly adding more as
time goes by).
My jar is on a table beside
my chair in the great room
and, from time-to-time, I
choose a new slip of paper
and write the answer. Each
of my children is eager to
read the answers and learn
more about their mother.
When my sister comes to
visit, her first question to me
is, "Have you written any
more in yourjournal?"As she
picks it up and reads my new
entries, she recalls times in
our past, before husbands


and children, when we were
the children and our cares
were few and our future was
unplanned. I also pick up the
journal and read what I have
written every now and again.
As my thoughts and feelings
change, I often add a new
answer to a question.
Everyone has someone in
each their lives about whom
they have thought, "Oh how
.I wish I knew what he/she
knows or has experienced in
life." The Journaling Jar is
the perfect answer. The
Internet is filled with pages
of questions and instructions
on how to create a Journaling
Jar.
Make it easier for someone
special in your life to remem-
ber those details long forgot-
ten. Create a Journaling Jar
and, this year, give the gift of
memories.

Learning to teach teaching to learn


By RON KELLEY
Most school teachers will
tell admit that they don't do
what they do for the money.
There cannot be much argu-
ment to that statement.
Given the enormity of a
teacher's responsibility and
the impact of their profession,
they remain among the most
poorly- p. iil professionals,
along with policemen,
fir tfighti- rs and paramedics.
Despite this, the teaching
profession continues to draw
people to its ranks whose pri-
mary desire is to share
knowledge and light the
spark of learning within the
minds of young children. Of-
ten, the teacher gains as
much from the task as the
student, for teachers also
learn.
Traci Naylor is one such
teacher. After graduating
from Walton High School in
2002, she attended and
graduated from American
University in Washington,
D.C. with a degree in inter-
national economic policy. As
part of her studies, she trav-
elled to Peking University in
China and studied for six
months. She spent part of
that time working in the
Women's Legal Aid depart-
ment, the first American to do
so. After returning to the
United States, she later went
back to China for a year to do
her graduate thesis.


While in China, Traci had
to learn to speak Mandarin
Chinese. "I was the first
American to work in Women's
Legal Aid and I had to be able
to communicate. I encoun-
tered people who could speak
some English, but it was up
to me to learn how to speak
Chinese. I chose China be-
cause it was a challenge."
Naylor said that every-
thing about China is funda-
mentally different from' the
U.S. She said city workers in
Bejing make about $200 per
month, while factory workers
are paid only $100. She ex-
plained that the government
gives a small parcel of farm-
land to families to work and
grow much of their food. How-
ever, over the years, men
from the poorest provinces
migrated to the cities and
urban areas seeking better
work and better pay, while
the women would stay be-
hind. The men would com-
mute at the week's on
month's end. Eventually, the
women began to migrate to
the cities, where they stayed.
Ironically, Naylor said,
Chinese people do not feel
exploited. "They are entering
their Industrial Revolution
and although labor conditions
vary in different regions and
with regard to certain types
of industry, it has provided a
true economic benefit," she
said.


In the corporate world,
things are a bit better. Naylor
said employees in large Chi-
nese companies are not
treated quite as well as in
American or European com-
panies, but the. salaries are
similar. Western influence is
positively accepted among
the people, although they are,
for the most part, still very
conservative in their think-
ing. Although considered a
ruthless, brutal tyrant by
Western standards, "They are
taught to revere Mao Tse-
tung and his teachings," she
said. Because of the huge
population, she said, the Chi-
nese government maintain
very rigid control over the
people's' lives.. "Starvation
due to overpopulation led to
intense child-bearing restric-
tions." This includes forced
abortions and sterilization.
Tradition still plays a very
large role in people's lives,
she said, especially in the
outlying provinces. In t he cit -
ies, cultural changes are very
radical, and come quickly.
For instance, said Naylor,
women's roles az'e changing.
"It's very generational. They
are so far behind the U.S. in
their thinking. They are prob-
ably 40-50 years behind our
educational system. Outside
the cities, they don't have
much access to education or
educational materials or
books. In the cities, that is
beginning to change. Science
and technology are stressed
in the schools.and universi-
ties, although tuition is still


very iigh. Computers are
cheap and there are Internet
cafes everywhere. Still, ac-
cess to the entire Web is for-
bidden and there is strong
support for national isblation-
ism. The Chinese admire our
business and educational sys-
temh, but despise the Ameri-
can political system.
Now back in U.S. and
,teaching sixth-grade in Glen-
dale, Arizona, near Phoenix,
Naylor said that she learned
so iuch about life, learning
and\the differences between
this culture and that one,
"But never felt comfortable
in China. It was too different.
It was, so crowded. I-made
some friends there, but IWlyas
always a stranger iri a
strange land. i also learned
another valuable lesson while
there don't drink the water!
Ughh!'
SNayfor said the impact of
livin and working in China
has made .a difference ih hher
life. "My experience has given
me an ability to show others
how, beautiful and wonderful
the whole world is/ The great-
est gift has been a chance to
show these children living in
riral Arizpna a window into
a world they will likely never
see or experience."
There was one more unex-
pected gift that her experi-
ences have brought to Traci
Naylor. "I'm more thankful td
be an American. We have so
much to be thankful for,. our
basic fundamental rights are
better here and so are our
freedoms. We are so blessed."

EVERYONE RECEIVED a towel with an an explana-
tion of "The Symbolism of the Towel."


The Symbolism of the Towel

At first glance, one looks at the towel and thinks per-
haps "Great, a towel. I could use a new one. I never seem
to have enough" or possibly, "The old ones are getting
stained and worn, I should replace them." But few of us
stop to think of the symbol of the towel.
For thousands of years, the towel has been used for a
variety of reasons. Think of the perspiration being wiped
from a woman's face as she labors in childbirth, then of
her newborn infant being gently wrapped in warm tow-.
els. Think of the physician who binds the wounds of his
bleeding patient; the mother who wipes the tears of a
little child, soothing away physical and emotional pain.
Think of a woman in her home wiping her hands as
she moves from task to task; cooking, baking, cleaning,
and serving the needs of those in her household, her com-
munity, and her world. Think of the weary traveler who
wipes his brow as he journeys on in the heat of the day
or the mechanic wiping the grease off his hands as he
works on the car in the garage.
Think of the dust and grime being cleaned from the
faces of day laborers after a hard day's work, mud being
wiped from little hands and feet after a good play out-
side or spills being soaked up when accidents happen.
Think of hair being dried after being caught in a spring
rain shower and of puppy puddles being soaked up.
The towel has a myriad of uses. Perhaps the most sig-
nificant use of the towel was about two thousand years
ago, when Jesus Christ took a towel in his hands and
dried the feet of his disciples only hours before his cruci-
fixion, humbly serving his fellow man, physically, in
preparation for the ultimate spiritual service he could
give, when he voluntarily laid down his life for them.
Please enjoy using this towel, given to you with love,
and use it to do works of kindness and service as did our
savior Jesus Christ. Notice that it is a Christmas towel
to remind you that this is indeed the most significant
time to become involved in service to our fellow man.
May you serve in love this Christmas season.


TERA NEWELL with towel and towel rack gifts.

Christmas spirit


Open Door elves show Christ-
mas spirit
By ROBIN NEWTON
The Open Door Commu-
nity Club held their Decem-
ber on Thursday, December
14 at the Best Western Cross-
roads Inn. The Christmas
elves decorated the candlelit
room with wooden trees and
greenery, poinsettias and a
Christmas tree.
After the formal business
meeting, everyone enjoyed
lunch and fellowship and
were eager to choose their
new ornament to take home.
As always, Sally Orlosky pro-
vided some great laughs, this,
time with a story about a po-
litically correct office Christ-
mas party.
Usually, at each meeting,
door prizes are handed out as
names are drawn. However,


this year, the elves (Joani
Cibiras, Jean Fazekas,
Dianne Hall, Sally Orlosky,
Shirley Sandqwski, and Mar-
garet Young ) provided a gift
for each person at the meet-
ing. The gift was, a small
kitchen towel wrapped in a
paper which explained the
'Symbolism of the Towel.'
Margaret Young won the a
special gift a Santa towel
rack made by Jean Fazekas.
Displaying the true spirit of
Christmas, she gave the gift
to Tera Newell.
The Open Door Commu-
nity Club is always seeking
new members. The club
meets on the second Thurs-
day of the month and the
January meeting will be held
on January 11 at 11 a.m.

In memory of

Christopher
Joseph Miller
I can still see
your smile,
Just as plain
as it can be.
The way your
eyes lit up,
when you said
that you loved me.
The way you'd offer
a hug to anyone
who was sad.
The way you'd.
whine and wimper
whenever you
got mad.
Over a year
has passed,
and I still don't
realize you're gone.
I miss you so much,
and I wish you could
come home.
The best time
of my life,
Those 3 short
little years.
When I realize
that you're gone,
My eyes well
up with tears.
I know that you're
very happy,
with Jesus up above,
But could you
please tell God
to send some
extra love?
A piece of my
heart is missing.
It will always
be with you.
And deep down *
in my soul,
I know you
miss me, too.
By Tesha Goddin


SThe Christ of Christmas-



By Dr. Charles
Satterwhite
Pastor, Freeport UMC

*The basic lesson for time or eternity that we as hu-
mans are to learn is that we are vessels capable of con-
taining God. The distortion of life that we got as a conse-
quence of the fall makes it appear that life is "activity."
We like to live, to use our minds and wills. But the truth
is that the secret of life is not activity, it is receptivity.
Activity is only a product of receptivity.
God is the invisible Person, the only real Person in
the universe. He is the love, the life, the wisdom, the all;
but being an invisible Person, He must have a means of
manifestation. The whole universe manifests Him and
shows forth His glory, but God is still a Person. And you
cannot see a person just in light, or in music, or in color.
You can see something of him, but you cannot see that he
is a person.
So God created persons to express His own Person
by them. The basic purpose of us human beings therefore
should be to become the vessels that contain Him. That
means our permanent habit has to become receptivity
rather than activity.
Love always makes it as easy as it can. God is love,
and He has made humanity as easy as He can. If life is
not easy for us, it is because we are not quite right yet.
And the easiest possible function a person can conceive
of is the function of receptivity. You just receive what is
poured on you; you just take it. Nothing else.
If you look at nature, you see that a tree does not
produce one leaf by activity. Vegetation receives. It has
sunlight and moisture poured on it. What it receives it
uses, but activity is only a product of receptivity.

Methodist Church. Sunday school 9 a.m.; Worship 10 a.m.;

In Memory

q-Coover Smith
(Memorial Verse and Poem by Frans Candles)






















God saw you getting tired
and a cure was not to be.
So He put His arms around you and
He whispered "Come to Me".
With tearful eyes we watched you.
We watched you fade away.
Although .we loved you dearly,
We could not make you:stay.
A golden heart stopped beating,
Hard-working hands at rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to 'us,
He chose to take the best.
It's lonesome here without you
We miss you more each day.
Life doesn't seem the same
since you have gone away.
When days are sad and lonely
and everything goes wrong,
we seem to hear you whisper
"Cheer Up and Carry On".
Each time we see your picture
you seem to smile and'say,
"Don't cry, I'm In God's'hands,
we'll meet again someday!"

We miss and love you
your wife, Frances & kids

Walton sharpshooting

defeats PDL 73-52


Ponce de Leon

sweeps Holmes

County tourney


By PATRICK CASEY
Walton freshman James
Towery canned seven 3-point-
ers as the Braves built a 17-
point halftime lead on the
way to a 73-52 victory over
the Ponce de Leon boys in a
non-district contest.
Walton (4-2) had four play-
ers in double figures as the
Braves used long distance
shooting to drain ten 3-point
shots during the contest.
Towery tallied 24 points while
LaRel Jackson and Dylan
Laird scored 14 apiece to lead
the Braves attack. Jonathan
McGhee added 10 points on
the interior as Walton won
their fourth straight game in
the series.
PDL (4-3) got 16 points
from Dylan Skinner on the
interior and 15 points from
Cody Carroll to lead the Pi-
rates. PDL struggled shoot-
ing the ball in enemy terri-
tory as they connected on only
19-of-58 shots from the floor
during the contest. Walton
forced 25 turnovers'from the
Pirates which led to several
easy baskets in the second
quarter as Walton outscored
the Pirates 25-13 in that pe-
riod.
Walton shot the ball well
at home, connecting on 28-of-
61 shots in the contest from
the floor.
"Towery is a good shooter
and we knocked down the
open shots," Walton coach
Jerry Hester commented af-
ter the game. "We didn't do a
great job in the third quarter
of taking care of the ball, but
we made enough shots to

Game Notes: Walton swept
PDL last year in two games.
The sweep was the first time
either team had won both
games in the same season in
the last 14 years. Walton
owns a 7-5 series advantage
dating back thru the 1992-93
season. Hester, a former
coach at PDL, is 5-3 against
the Pirates since returning to
Walton. Hester is 73-39 in his
fifth year at Walton as head
coach. Skinner remains one of
the top hustlers on the court
for the Pirates. Towery is the
early favorite for Freshman of
the Year honors. Walton
played 11 players in the con-
test. Walton won the junior
varsity contest 60-55. The
two teams will both take part
in the Freeport boys 16-team
tournament December 27-30.


WALTON'S LAREL JACKSON GETS THE BALL AWAY
from a Ponce de Leon player and gets it going back down the
court for the Braves. The Braves beat Ponce de Leon, 73-52.


PONCE DE LEON'S CODY CARROLL returns the favor
and smacks it away from a Walton player to get the ball
back down in Ponce de Leon territory.

The Ponce de Leon Pirates,
won all four games in the
championship round of the
Holmes County Christmas
Tournament on Saturday in
Bonifay.
The PDL girls got a 54-44
victory over Holmes County
to capture the 2006 crown as
Maggie Wright and Allex
McCormick scored 11 points
apiece to capture the title.
The Pirates connected on 21-
of-29 shooting at the free
throw line to help their cause.
PDL (8-2) led 36-21 after
three quarters only to see the
Bluedevils catch fire and cut
the deficit to two points late
in the contest.
Holmes County was hurt
by poor free throw shooting
of their own as they hit on
only 14-of-32 shots from the
charity stripe. Brianna
Belcher led the Bluedevils
with 12 points in the game.
Jesse Paulk and Kyle
Shull scored 15 points apiece
as PDL won the boys side of
the event 54-46. PDL fell be-


hind early in the contest but
went to halftime tied. The Pi-
rates(7-3) pulled away in the
second half to grab their sec-
ond win of the season over the
Bluedevils.
Game Notes: PDL's girls
have won ten straight games
over the Bluedevils. PDL is
10-8 against Holmes County
over the last seven seasons.
PDL already had a win over
Holmes County earlier in the
season. PDL beat the
Bluedevils 60-46 in PDL on
November 20. PDL's girls will
return to Bonifay for a final
rematch on January 25. PDL
won the girls and boys junior
varsity titles on Saturday as
well. PDL played the game
without junior Tyla Yates,
who injured her knee in prac-
tice on Friday and was on
crutches for the contest. The
PDL boys beat Holmes
County in their season
opener in PDL 71-33. The two
boys squads will play their
third and final battler in
Bonifay on January 23.

South Walton boys fall to Northview


By PATRICK CASEY
For 26 minutes, South
Walton was close to their first
district win in two seasons.
The last six minutes, how-
ever, proved their undoing as
Northview's Nakita Myles
and Tarus Thomas combined
to score 22 points in the
fourth quarter and rally the
Chiefs to a 58-46 win against
the Seahawks.
South Walton led 36-31
entering the fourth quarter
as their methodical style of
offense had kept Northview
in check for most of the night.
However, the Chiefs were
able to force turnovers and
took advantage of South
Walton's sloppy ball-handling
down the stretch to overcome
a poor shooting night on the
road and grab the win. The
Seahawks had 23 turnovers
on the night.
Myles finished with 26
points as the all-purpose jun-
ior was the Chiefs' main scor-
ing threat. Tarus Thomas
added 17 for the visiting
squad.
South Walton(4-7) got 16
points from Preston Beard
and 14 from Chris Davies in
the losing effort.


Game Notes: South Walton
won the girls varsity contest
56-42 to even the Seahawks
record at 7-7 heading into the
Freeport girls Christmas
Tournament. The win came
at a cost, as junior Tara
Watson injured her knee in
the second quarter and was
unable to return. The extent


of the injury is unknown, but
Watson is the team's second
leading scorer and one of
their top rebounders. South
Walton will make the trip to

Northview on January 12.
The boys are 0-3 in District
1, Class 3A while the girls are
1-9

How will area college





teams stack up in the bowls?
sDorts commentary


3y CHUCK HINSON
Over the next few weeks,
beginningg Dec. 27 with
'lorida State and UCLA,
southernn college football
.ears will be tested with
.eams from other conferences
;uch as the PAC 10 and Big
LO. This year, teams like Ala-
)ama, Florida State and Mi-
ami are fighting to have a
winning season record, while
Florida is playing for a na-
tional title.
On Dec. 27, 'the Seminoles,-
travel to San Francisco to
take on UCLA in the Emer-
ald Bowl. Florida State (6-6)
will be playing to just have a
winning record while taking
on the same team that, three
weeks ago, pulled down
crosstown rival and No. 2
team at the time, UCLA.
The following are teams
stats up to present date:
FSU 6-6 season record,
worst since 1974. heavy in-
jury lists, started many
freshmen in the 2006 season.
-top wins, 30-0, Virginia
- worst loss 30-0, Wake For-
est
UCLA 7-6 record
- top wins, 13-9 over No. 2
USC and a 24-12 win over


Arizona St.
-worst loss, 27-7, Arizona
Miami is up next and they
will be facing the Nevada
Wolfpack. The Hurricanes (6-
6) have been on a roller
coaster ride this past season
with the murder of a star
player, the brawl against
Florida International, the
suspension of 13 players and
the changing o:fthe guards. I
am referring to Larry Coker
who has been replaced in-
house by defensive coordina-
tor, Randy Shanrnon.
The Canes have also
cleaned house in the past
year and, for the first time in
more than five years, are
playing in a bowl not listed
in the top BCS bowls.
They face Nevada (7-3)
who has begun to take the
spotlight in their division.
Both teams meet on New
Year's Eve night in the MPC
Bowl.
Miami 6-6 record
-top wins- Florida A& M, 51-
10 and Florida Intierntaional,
35-0.
-worst loss to Louisville, 31-
7
-closest game -lost to Mary-
land, 14-13


Nevada 7-3 record
- Top wins, Colorado State,
28-10 and Louisiana Tech,
42-0
-worst loss, Arizona State,
52-21
-closest game Northwestern
lost to Nevada, 31-21
Auburn has much to brag
about this season. They had
four straight wins over intr-
astate rival Alabama and
were the only team to take
down Florida during regular
season, NCAA plav: The Ti-
gers' chances fora-BCS title
berth were due to the first
loss at home against Arkan-
sas and then the surprise loss
to a damaged Georgia team
that came into Jordan Hare
Stadium and beat the Tigers
37-15, handing them their
second loss of the season.
On New Years' Day, they
take on the Nebraska
Cornhuskers.
Auburn 10-2 season record
-top win, 27-17 win over
Florida
-worst loss, to Georgia, 37-15
Nebraska 9-4 season
record
-top win- 'Troy, 56-0 and
Nicholls State, 56-7
-worst losses, USC 28-10,


Oklahoma 21-7 and Okla-
homa St. 41-29
-closest game lost to Texas
22-20; beat Kansas St (OT)
39-32
Alabama has also seen bet-
ter seasons and have had
their share of disappoint-
ments during the 2006 regu-
lar football season. After los-
ing three staright games at
the conclusion of the season,
the Tide also let go head
coach Mike Shula, despite his
10-2 season in 2005.
Oklahoma State is still cel-
ebrating their Oct. 28 victory
over Nebraska, and despite
not going to one of the top
BCS bowls, they are the fa-
vorite in the Dec. 28 Indepen-
dence Bowl, playing against
Alabama.
Alabama 6-6 season record
-top wins- 41-7, Louisiana
Monroe
-worst loss Mississippi
State, 24-16
-closest games Alabama
beat Ole Miss, 26-23. (OT);'

kansas wins in.2 (OT), 24-

Oklahoma State 6-6 sea-
son record
-top win Nebraska, 41-29


-worst loss Texas, 36-10
-closest game lost to Texas
A & M in (OT), 34-33

The game that will decide
who gets to keep all the
marbles will happen on Jan.
8, when homestate Florida
and season-long No. 1-
ranked Ohio State travel to
Glendale, AZ for the national
championship game. It has
been a fight for.the Gators to
get to the "big one," and has
been a clear shot for the
Buckeyes who have not fal-
tered once throughout the
entire season.
Florida showed their abili-
ties and the reason why they
were the best choice to go to
the national championship
when they won the SEC title
after defeating Arkansas.
Coupled with the USC loss
to UCLA, the Gators were
the next in line for the
match-up against Ohio
State.
The Buckeyes have had
the perfect season, with Troy
Smith winning the Heisman
Trophy, a perfect 12-0 sea-
son, then taking the Big Ten
title.
With both teams' impres-



sive offenses and their line-
penetrating defense, the
match-up should be one of
the best games of the decade
as long as the game-winning
decider comes down to a
Florida fieldgoal or
afterpoint.
Florida 12 1 season
record
-top win beat Arkansas for
SEC title, 38-28
-loss to Auburn, 27-17
-closest game beat South
Carolina 17-16.-, -
Ohio State 12-0 season
record
-top garie -beat Texas 24-7;
Michigan St. 38-7; Minne-
sota 44-0.
-closest game -beat Michi-
gan, 42-39
One other team to. keep
your eye on during the bowl
season is the LSU and Notre
Dame match-up in the Sugar
Bowl on Jan. 3.
Both teams lost the chance
to fight for the national title
despite losing four close
games to all top 10-ranked
teams
LSU (10-2) lost to Florida
and Auburn, while Notre
Dame (10-2) stumbled with
USC and Michigan.


SUPERINTENDENT CARLENE ANDERSON, at the "Charlotte's Web" at Maude Saunders Elementary School.
head of the class, leads the kids in a mass reading' from


Superkids: Maude Saunders students go

for a reading record with "Charlotte's Web"


By BRUCE COLLIER
A group that has been un-
officially estimated as 200
students, and a few other
guests and witnesses, gath-
ered at Matide Saunders El-
ementary School in DeFu-
niak Springs on Dec. 13 to go
for a record.
The record attempt, to be
submitted to the "Guinness


Book of Records," was to be
"the most people reading
aloud simultaneously."
The current record in that
category is held by 155,528
students from schools in the
United Kingdom, who read
William Wordsworth's poem
"Daffodils" on March 19,
2004.
*The chosen passage for


this attempt was from
"Charlotte's Web," by E.B.
White. The familiar tale of
Wilbur, the runt of-the-litter
pig that befriends a wise spi-
der, has. been a favorite of
children since it was pub-
lished in 1952.
The students read ah ex-
cerpt that describes Wilbur
and Charlotte's first meeting.


Walton County Superin-
tendent of Schools Carlene
Anderson addressed the stu-
dents before the reading, tell-
ing them they were reading
one of her favorite books. "I
always cried at the end," she
said.
Witnesses were asked to
sign statements attesting to
the reading.

Historical program


presented at Paxton High


THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, DECEMBER 21, 2006


Sixth grade students at
Paxton High presented a his-
torical skit, November 2, for
their parents, 5th and 7th
grade students and their
teachers. After researching
America's history, the group
created a timeline from 1775
until 2000. They chose the
title "America's Promise" with
freedom as the theme.
Students retold history
through documents such as
The Declaration of Indepen-
dence, events, heroes, inven-
tions, struggles, principles,
famous quotes and speeches.
Alyssa McClellan sang the
National Anthem and piano
selections were performed by
Brandon Patton and Grace
Hester. Directing the perfor-
mances were teachers Ms.
Cathy Wilder and Ms. Dawn
Nicholson. Principal Mike
Anderson took Dart in the


program by giving a bio-
graphical account of
Abraham Lincoln's commit-
ment to America and also re-
cited The Gettysburg Ad-
dress.
Dressed in red, white and
blue, sixth graders partici-
pated in telling how this na-
tion was created and how the
government was instituted.
They painted a patriotic pic-
ture through words and mu-
sic, accompanied with a
timeline slideshow.
Parents were treated to a
reception afterward with the
assistance of Ms. Christie
Dixon and Ms. Leeann
Hodges.
Students say they enjoyed
performing and learned a lot
about American history while
planning, rehearsing and tak-
ing part in the program.
Sixth grade students look


forward to their next oppor-
tunity to entertain an audi-
ence. Students issued a spe-
cial thanks to.the parents
who attended and supported
their efforts and for the posi-
tive comments and compli-
ments.

Kellogg nature center


to become reality


By JEFFREY POWELL
The South Walton Tourist
Development Council
(SWTDC) recently approved
budgeting that allows plan-
ning to go ahead on phase
one of the proposed Kellogg
nature center.
The nature center will be
located on 10 acres deeded to
Walton County by the late
Pat Kellogg. Kellogg died last
May at the age of 88.
Preliminary plans for the
site, located on Nellie drive
near Choctawhatchee Bay,
call for a nature trail to in-
clude interpretive markers


and parking for visitors.
"We intend to see that
Mrs. Kellogg's dream of an
educational center comes
true," said SWTDC New
Product Development Man-
ager Tiffany McCaskill. "She
wanted an educational cen-
ter where both residents and
visitors can learn about and
experience nature's beauty."
. Ultimately the nature cen-
ter could include a structure
used for educational pur-
poses and a meeting place.
The property must be devel-
oped by Dec 31, 2008.
"We have got to get started


on this project or the prop-
erty will revert back to
Kellogg's family," said
SWTDC Executive Director
Kriss Titus.
In other business, the
SWTDC is preparing to ask
Walton County to donate
land adjacent to the South
Walton County Annex for a
new visiUpcoming construc-
tion on U.S. 331 will not al-
low traffic traveling south to
turn east into the existing
building. The SWTDC will
continue to use the current
site for administrative pur-
poses.


ON THE EARLY MORNING of October 19, 2006 while crossing the Clyde Wells bridge this island of
white was spotted out in the ChoctawhatcheeBay. This is a colony of migrating American White
Pelicans.


ALTHOUGH IT WAS REMOVED FROM THE NATIONAL list of threatened species in 1987, the Ameri-
can it hirh pelican is still considered endangered in Alberta, Canada, where they arrive in late April to
nest and breed. They leave Alberta before late September and migrate to the coasts of Florida and IMe. ico
for the winter:
One of the world's largest birds, it weighs fronn 11-17 Ibs. and has a wingspan of 110 inches. The white
pelican tas (a long orange bill and short orange legs and feet. It also has an enormous throat pouch for
scooping up fish as it swims, while our native species, the brown pelican dives from the air to catch its
prey. Their Iffespan in the wild.is 12-14 years.


The White Pelican -

Pelecanus Erythrorhynchos


THIS HOME and ten acres of land near Choctawhatchee bay were deeded to Walton
County by Pat Kellogg.




Gulf Cemetery court date changed


PICTURED HERE is our native
Brown Pelican that we always see
diving into the waters around the
plnhandle.


By JEFFREY POWELL
A court hearing to consider
a request for a temporary in-
junction against the Gulf
Cemetery Association has
been rescheduled for 9 a.m.
on Jan. 23, 2007.
The injunction is intended
to stop developers from ob-


training close to 2.5 acres of
cemetery land offofC.R. 395.
Developers maintain the
need for the land to access an
adjacent parcel.
Opponents of the arrange-
ment insist that the cem-
etery will incur irreparable
damage if the arrangement


is completed.
.An earlier report stated
that 88 future burial plots
would be lost if the road is
constructed. The actual num-
ber of potential graves lost
would be closer to 1400 ac-
cording to Jasper Dennison,
an opponent of the swap.

CBA celebrates 10 years


~j'u ~

CBA VOLUNTEERS RECENTLY planted native vegetation along the shore adjacent to
Cessna Park in Santa Rosa Beach in hopes of reducing erosion problems.


By JEFFREY POWELL
The Choctawhatchee Ba-
sin Alliance (CBA) celebrated
its tenth anniversary on De-
cember 6 at the Okaloosa
Walton College (OWC)
Niceville campus.
"It is hard to believe 10
years has passed," said OWC
President James Richburg.
"The CBA was a wonderful
idea then and it is a wonder-
ful idea now."
The CBA, under the aus-
pices of the college, provides
opportunities for citizens,
educators and technical ex-
perts to promote the health
of the Choctawhatchee Ba-
sin.
Current and ongoing CBA
projects include the Hogtown


Bayou storm water plan, re-
establishing oyster beds
throughout Choctawhatchee
Bay and most recently a
management plan for the
threatened coastal dune
lakes of southern Walton
County.
The CBA has plans to lo-
cate and map exotic and in-
vasive plant species in the
lakes. Once completed the
master plan will be pre-
sented to the Walton County
Board of County Commis-
sioners.

The CBA relies heavily on
volunteers to assist in water
quality monitoring through-
out Okaloosa and Walton
County. "The public is the ul-


timate monitor of the bay,"
said CBA Advisory Board
Vice-Chair Dennis Peters.
CBA experts analyze water
samples from 145 stations
monthly.
"This 10-year mark is evi-
dence that the CBA will be
around for a long time," said
Advisory Board Member
Ross Hamilton. "Sustaining
the Bay is a full time job that
will never be completed."
Citizens interested in vl6-
unteering or wanting more
information concerning the
CBA can access
www.basinalliance.org.
"We can always use more
people to help sustain one of
our greatest assets in north-
west Florida," Hamilton said:

Lions Club Christmas

fundraiser a success


Local citizens often see
waves on the beach, but this
past week, all could see
waves of poinsettias in the
recreation room of Faith
Assembly Church. 1,100
poinsettias were unloaded
last Tuesday for the
Sandestin Lions Club
Christms fund raiser.
All the plants have been
delivered and requests for
more keep coming in. This


project will earn about
$9,500 for the club and will
allow for local contributions
to the Caring and Sharing for
their Christmas deliveries. It
will also provide some more
funds to, support the
Campaing Sight First II pro-
gram that has been designed
to save the eyesight of 37
million people around the
world by the year 2020.
Merry Christmas.

PREVENT FROZEN PIPES THIS WINTER
Freezing weather may bring discomforts but one of them, frozen water
pipes, can be avoided with a little planning and a few simple steps. When
frigid artic air hits. water freezes, and as it freezes, it expands causing
pipes to burst and possible flooding to occur.

Pipes that freeze most frequently are those that are exposed to severe cold,
such as outdoor hose bibs, showers, swimming pool supply lines, water
sprinkler lines and water supply pipes in unheated interior areas such as
basements and crawl spaces, attics, garages or kitchen cabinets. Pipes that
run against exterior walls that have little or no insulation are also subject to
freezing.

There are several things that people can do to prepare for freezing %weather.
and there is one important thing everyone needs to know. Determine where
the shut-off \alve is in the house and how to use it in case pipes freeze and
break.
Check around the home for other areas where w ater
supply lines are located in unheated areas. Look in the basement, crawl
space, attic, garage, and under kitchen and bathroom cabinets. Both hot and
cold water pipes in these areas should be insulated. A hot water supply
line can freeze just as a cold w after supply line can freeze if water is not
running through the pipe, and the water temperature becomes cold.

Keep garage doors closed if there are water supply lines in the
garage.
When the weather is very cold outside, let the cold water drip (at a
minimal amount from the faucet served by exposed pipes. Running water
through the pipe, even at a trickle, helps prevent frozen pipes.
If you '\ill be going a%%ay during cold weather, leave
the heat set to a temperature no lower than 55cF.

Christmas Day is
less than a week
away and all the pre-
paring, shopping,
decorating, concerts,
parties and holiday
happenings are be-
ginning to wind
down for another
year. With all the ex-
citement and all the
celebrating, is every-
one able to have the
holiday spirit?

Usually every Christmas
Day I am on the road return-
ing from family Christmas in
Mississippi. I listen to Christ-
mas carols on the road and
try to find an open gas sta-
tion or fast food to get gas in
or to use the bathroom.
Almost everything along
the way is closed except for a
few gas stations and numer-
ous firework stands. I do stop,
sometimes just to see an-
other person on the road for
sometimes nothing more
than idle chit-chat.
Like most people, the day
is centered around families
and getting together with
loved ones for the holidays.
For a 24-36 hour span of
time, the world's problems
seem to melt away and the
reason of the season takes
center stage. It is the one
time of year that no matter
how bad things seemed to be
throughout the year, it all
'fades away when you see the
lights on the tree and the
family gathered around the
table.


Talking with friends of
mine at a Christmas party
last week, we were all dis-'
cussing how it used to be
when we were kids. The ex-
citement of getting up on
Christmas morning, getting
out of school for the holidays,
ripping into gifts, stuffing
ourselves on the meals pre-
pared and eating things that
were laced, coated or dipped
in chocolate.
Now all we talked about
was how many gifts we had
to buy, all the people crash-
ing your house on Christmas
Day and how many pounds
we had packed on since
Thanksgiving.
A far cry from the "re-
member when" days.
But as we get older, the
idea of having presents
crammed under the tree
with our name on them,
seems not as important. Be-
ing able to see the excited
look on another person's
face, such as a child or even
our parents when they
ripped into their presents,
made our holidays worth the
hustle and stress.
This' ya4r I wxss blessed
enough that I could help out
another family in our area
that was not having such a

great year and Christmas
would not be very joyful for
their children once again. The
family of six were faithful
Methodist churchgoers and
the mother told me that her
children knew the real reason
for Christmas and the par-
ents had not been able to pro-
vide them with gifts in the
past two years.
The humbling part of this
story is that the family felt
they were blessed enough and
never asked for any help.
Even though we should all
know why we celebrate
Christmas, I couldn't let a
family with a two, four, seven
and nine year-old child go
without some type of Christ-
mas gifts. No matter how old
you are, it always makes you
feel special and appreciated
when you are presented with
a present at any ocassion.
With a few friends, we were
able to buy at least three gifts
per child and a three-night,
four-day getaway vacation for
the parents, plus a turkey
dinner, complete with all the
trimmings. When they
dropped-off the items this
past Sunday, there were no
words to describe the look on
the parents' faces and the
feeling that swelled in their


heart, and yes, even in their
eyes.
The true meaning of the
holiday season had been
achieved and this group fi-
nally had the holiday spirit.
They said this year, instead
of riding around to see all
their friends and other fam-
ily member's Christmas gifts,
they would have them over
for Christmas dinner and let
their children show off their
new toys. The family asked
not to be interviewed, but'
commented, "It is a true love
that has been shown us and
we, will one day return that
hope to another needy fam-
ily."
This family is not alone
this holiday season. Hun-
dreds of people in and
around our county are going
without, not only during the
holidays, but throughout the
year. The love that is shown
during this time of year
seems to last the entire year
because of what the season
stands for and represents.
So this Christmas, as you
are gathered around your
table with. the pumpkin pie,
the roasted turkey, sweet po-
tato casserole and every
imaginable delicacy,just take
a minute to think if you have
done your part, to make
someone else's Christmas
Day special. If you are like
me, there is always one other
person that can be touched
and one more life that can be
appreciated.
. As they always say, giving
of-yourself is the best gift of
all, but to give of your money
and time, is divine!

Merry Christmas.

STATE OF FLORIDA
DEPARTMENT OF
ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION
NOTICE OF INTENT TO ISSUE
PERMIT

This intent to issue a permit (File
No. 66-0255548-001 -DF) to Rosa Del
Mar, L.L.C., Destin, Florida, to fill 4.66
acres of jurisdictional wetlands in as-
sociation with a commercial retail cen-
ter, is hereby granted unless a suffi-
cient petition for an administrative
hearing is timely filed under sections
120.569 and 120.57 of the Florida
Statutes as provided below. Wetland
impacts will be offset by the enhance-
ment and long-term management of
approximately 190 acres of offsite
wetlands through fire management
and exotic species removal. All miti-
gation wetlands are preserved in per-
petuity and have been placed in a con-
servation easement. The procedures
for petitioning for a hearing are set
forth below. The project is located on
the south side of Highway 90, west of
Mall Drive on lots 33 and 34, Section
34, Township 02-S, Range 20-W,
Class III Waters of the State, Santa
Rosa Beach, Walton County.

A person whose substantial inter-
ests are affected by the Department's
action may petition for an administra-
tive proceeding (hearing) under sec-
tions 120.569 and 120.57 of the
Florida Statutes. The petition must
contain the information set forth be-
low and must be filed (received by the
clerk) in the Office of General Coun-
sel of the Department at 3900. Com-
monwealth Boulevard, Mail Station
35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000.

Because the administrative hear-
ing process is designed to redeter-
mine final agency action on the appli-
cation, the filing of a petition for an ad-
mrinistrative hearing may result in a
modification of the permit and lease,
or even a denial of the application. Ac-
cordingly, the applicant is advised not
to commence construction or other
activities under this permit/lease until
the deadlines below for filing a peti-
tion for an administrative hearing, or
request for an extension of time have
expired.

Under rule 62-110.106(4) of the
Florida Administrative Code, a person
whose substantial interests are af-
fected by the Department's action may
also request an extension of time to
file a petition for an administrative
hearing. The Department may, for
good cause shown, grant the request
for an extension of time. Requests for
extension of time must be filed with
the Office of General.Counsel of the
Department at 3900 Commonwealth
Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahas-
see, Florida 32399-3000, before the
applicable deadline. A timely request
for extension of time shall toll the run-
ning time period for filing &petition until
the request is acted upon. If a request
is filed late, The Department may still
grant it upon a motion by the request-
ing party showing that the failure to
file a request for an extension of time
before the deadline was the result of
excusable neglect.

In the event that a timely and suf-
ficient petition for an administrative
hearing is filed, other persons whose
substantial interests will be affected
by the outcome of the administrative
process have the right in petition to
intervene in the proceeding. Interven-
tion will be only at the discretion of the
presiding officer upon the filing of a
motion in compliance with rule 28-106-
205 of the Florida Administrative
Code.

In accordance with rules 28-
106.111(2) and 62-110.106(3)(a)(4),
petitions for an administrative hearing
by the applicant must be filed within
21 days of receipt of this written no-
tice. Petitions filed by any persons
other than the applicant, and other
than those entitled to written notice
under section 120.60(3) of the Florida
Statutes, must be filed within 21 days
of publication of the notice or within
21 days of such notice, regardless of
the date of publication.

Under section 120.60(3) of the
Florida Statues, however, any person
who has asked the Department for no-
tice of agency action may file a peti-
tion within21 days of such notice, re-
gardless of the date of publication.

The petitioner shall mail a copy of
the petition to the applicant at the ad-
dress indicated above at the time of
filing. The failure of any person to file
a petition for an administrative hear-
ing or pursue mediation as provided
below within the appropriate time pe-
riod shall constitute a waiver of those
rights.

A petition that disputes the mate-
rial facts on which the Department's
action is based must contain the fol-
lowing information:

(a) The name and address of each
agency affected and each agency's


file or identification number, if known;
(b) The name, address, and tele-
phone number of the petitioner, the
name, address, and telephone num-
ber of the petitioner's representative,
if any, which shall be the address for
service purposes during the course of
the proceeding; and an explanation of
how the petitioner's substantial inter-
ests are or will be affected by the
agency determination;
(c) A statement of when and how
the petitioner received notice of the
agency decision;
(d) a statement of all disputed is-
sues of material fact. If there are none,
the petition must so indicate;
(e) a concise statement of the ulti-
mate facts alleged, including the spe-
cific facts that the petitioner contends
warrant reversal or modification of the


agency's proposed action; and
(f) A statement of the specific rules
or statutes that the petitioner contends
require reversal or modification of the
agency's proposed action;
(g) A statement of the relief sought
by the petitioner, stating precisely the
action that the petitioner wishes the
agency to take with respect to the
agency's proposed action.

A petition that does not dispute the
material facts on which the
Department's action is based shall
state that no such facts are in dispute
and otherwise shall contain the same
information as set forth above, as re-
quired by rule 28-106.301. Under sec-
tions 120.569(2)(c.) and (d) of the
Florida Statutes, a petition for admin-
istrative hearing must be dismissed by
the agency if the petition does not sub-
stantially comply with the above re-
quirements or is untimely filed.

This action is final and effective on
the date filed with the Clerk of the De-
partment unless a petition is filed in
accordance with the above. Upon the
timely filing of petition this order will
not be effective until further order of
the Department.

This permit constitutes an order of
the Department. The applicant has the
right to seek judicial review of the or-
der under section 120.68 of the Florida
Statutes, by the filing of a notice of
appeal under rule 9.110 of the Florida

peal accompanied by the applicable

ment within 20 days from the date

JUSTIN LAMB COMPLETES inhabits the elf "Crumpet" as he details his time as a
Santa's helper at Macy's in Seaside Repertory Theatre production of the Santaland Diaries.




"Santaland Diaries" provide


Christmas chuckles


By LEAH STRATMANN

Anyone who has ever
heard David Sedaris on
NPR, or read one of his
books, knows he is wry
observer of the modern
condition and often mines
his own past to provide
satiric commentary.
Santaland Diaries, the
current production at the
Seaside Repertbry Theatre
is a stage at of one of
,Sedaris' short stories.
This adult fare is often
billed as anti-holiday, as
Sedaris relates his observa-
tions on human behavior
while employed as an elf in
Macy's in New York City
one Christmas season. His
hilarious descriptions of
children, their parents, the
other elves and the variet-
ies of Santa are acerbic and
everything we would expect
of Sedaris. However, if
you've ever witnessed
people lined up with their
children to see Santa, or


been harried by the pres-
sure of the season to find
the perfect gift, this is just
the thing to lighten your
emotional load. You laugh
throughout the 90-minute
production and laughter is
liberating.
Playing him, Justin
Lamb is a tbur-de-force in
the one-man show. Even if
he weren't the only charac-
ter on stage, it would be
difficult to take your eyes
off him. With total com-
mand of the dialog, Lamb
uses his body and facial
expressions to good effect.
Additionally, he is able to
manipulate his voice when
describing other characters
so well; you'd swear thdre
was more than one person
on the stage.
The play is funny it's
a simple as that. From the
opening scene where
Sedaris, newly come to New
York City unemployed and
dodging phone calls from
creditors lounges on his


couch casually perusing the
want ads and fatefully sees
the ad from Macy's for
elves. There is quite a riff
on adults dressed up as
vegetables, hot dogs and
other strange things on the
street, but Sedaris figures
there is more dignity for an
adult in an elf suit in a
contained area of a depart-
ment store. He is therefore
quite chagrined to learn
that when one takes photo
money to the cashier, they
leave the Santaland area
and must travel through
the store in the elf costume.
As Sedaris describes
the relatively rigorous
process one has to go
through to become an elf -
from drug testing to more
than a week of training it
is clear that Macy's takes
Santaland duties quite
seriously. The elves are
required to be able to assist
in several areas of
Santaland, from taking the
photo money to being
stationed at the entry area,
where the line is tradition-
ally quite long arid referred
to as the "Oh God, area" as
parents see how long they
are likely to have to wait. It
is the elf's duty to assure
them it will be no more
than hour until the child is
comfortably in Santa's lap.
Each elf is required to
take on an elf name and
Sedaris chooses "Crumpet"
for himself, as I assume
someone else had already
selected curmudgeon.
Crumpet and his band of
elves make it through the
holidays in fine form.
Santaland Diaries runs
through Dec. 23 in the
Seaside Meeting Room
Theatre at 7:30 p.m. Tickets
are $20 for members, $25
for non-members. Call 231-
3033 to reserve a ticket.
