DFS expanding


its boundaries


By LEIGH STRICKLAND
The DeFuniak Springs
City Council met in regular
session Monday night at City
Hall.
The city has grown in size
again with the council's vote
to annex into the city lots 25
and 26 of the Quail Ridge
subdivision. This property is
located on the west side of
U.S. 331, south of prior city
limits.
The nearby Gulf Commu-
nications property, which is
also located on the west side
of U.S. 331 south of the city
limits, was considered as
well. This property includes
lots 29, 31, and 32 of the
same subdivision. The city
will hold a public hearing
before voting on adoption of
an ordinance that would an-
nex this property into the city
limits.
Two variance requests for
changes in the Historic Dis-
trict were presented to the
council. The city will adver-
tise public hearing dates for
the requests, which were
submitted by the owners of
754 Circle Drive and 290
Crescent Drive.
A request for proposals ne-
gotiation committee made up


of the city manager, assistant
city manager, finance Direc-
tor, public works director and
one member of the city coun-
cil will be formed. This new
committee will negotiate
with low bidders on future
city projects and make rec-
ommendations to the council.
The city received seven
proposals for engineering
services for the city. Council
members will see presenta-
tions of the top three propos-
als at its January 22 meet-
ing.
For the Burdick Avenue
water project, the city re-
ceived eight bids. Thurman
Construction's bid of
$99,288.32 was the lowest.
Improvements to the city
airport continue. The coun-
cil approved applying for fed-
eral assistance for help with
runway repairs. The council
also approved the use of
funds for a new GPS system
for the airport.
The council approved giv-
ing Aero FX, which operates
the airport, the authority to
sub-lease city property at the
airport site. The council re-
viewed a sub-lease agree-
ment for this, but it has not
yet approved it.


Alaqua Industrial Park



slated for U.S. 331


Man arrested on child

molestation warrants in

Alachua County


By BRUCE COLLIER
A Panama City man was
arrested on outstandig war-
rants from Alachua County
for child molestation charges
last Friday.
DeFuniak Springs Police
Department (DFSPD) offic-
ers on patrol spotted three
white males near the
Chautauqua Rehabilitation
Center at around 2 a.m. on
the morning of Jan 5.
Two of the men were de-
tained and identified as tran-
sients hitchhiking through
the area, but the third fled.
Police began a search, which
led to his apprehension about
an hour later. He reportedly
tried to flee once more, but
was prevented.
The man was identified as
Robert J. Perry, 20, of
Panama City. Perry is
wanted in Alachua County
for allegedly having "Illegal
interactions" with "at least
three juveniles," all under
age 12. He was transported
to Walton County Jail and
booked on warrants for sev-


eral counts of lewd
civious molestation.
DFSPD contacted
forcement author

Perry since last sum
is alleged to be a "hi

two other men out

Scam lands DeFunial

Springs woman in jai


Responding to an e-mail
scam has put a DeFuniak
Springs woman in jail on
charges of uttering counter-
feit checks and grand theft.
The DeFuniak Springs Po-
lice Department (DFSPD) re-
ported that Kimberly
Woolery, 47, received e-mails
regarding possible employ-
ment at a company in Great
Britain. Part of the offer in-
volved her depositing checks
into her own bank account,
withdrawing cash, and wire
transferring funds to an over-
seas account.
The checks initially
cleared, but later proved to
be counterfeit. The bank is
reportedly out "several thou-
sand dollars," according to


DFSPD. Woolery hi
booked on two counts
uttering counterfeit
and grand theft.

Chautauqua is coming


On February 8-11, the
Florida Chautauqua
Assembly will host some very
"famous" folks, including
Teddy Roosevelt, Louisa May
Alcott and one of Florida's
own, Governor Sidney J.
Catts. All of these presenters
will be giving us a glimpse
into the life of their times.
In addition, on Friday
night, the Assembly will host
Bill Oberst Jr., who will bring
us a look-alike, sound-alike


performance of Lewis
Grizzard, the beloved
columnist for the Atlanta
Journal/Constitution and
stand-up comic-critic of our
everyday life.
The entire program can
be found on the Web site,
www.Florida-Chautauqua-
Center.org. Information is
also available from
Susan@Florida-Chautauqua-
Center.org or by calling 850-
892-7613.


Finch said that while not
every business that moves
into Alaqua Industrial Park
will need that much space,
some industries, such as
plumbing, granite and
cabinet-making, furniture
restoration, are tailor-made
to such a set-up.
"It's a place to meet with
customers, and to entice
them in," Finch said of the
showrooms. "Customers
would never stop by an
ordinary industrial park,
but since people are going to
be driving by and looking in
the windows, this provides
these small businesses a
way to pick up new
customers."
Alaqua Industrial Park
will consist of about 18
retail stores/showrooms, up
.to 24 industrial buildings on
half-acre or one-acre lots,
and the mini-storage
facility. Ground breaking is
expected for early 2007.
"There is very limited
property zoned industrial in
Walton County," Finch
noted. "And what's so
unique about this 23 acres


is that it is so ideally
located. U.S. 331 is a
corridor, you're 3 1/2 miles
south of I-10 and there is so
much growth going on in
and around DeFuniak
Springs and Freeport."
Alaqua Industrial Park is
close to Owl's Head, a new
1,000-acre community being
planned for Walton County.
Finch, who owns and
operates Sunshine Shuttle,
which provides
transportation services
between Pensacola and
Panama City Beach, says
Alaqua Industrial Park will
be a good neighbor. Every
effort will be made to
preserve the existing trees
on the property and the
units will be energy .
efficient and.solar powered.
S"Long before construction
began, John asked for our
help to make sure his
commercial facilities were
developed with energy
efficiency in mind," says
Aaron J. Bradshaw,
manager of marketing for
CHELCO. "He is very
interested in green


technologies. When it comes
to making sure that his
development is in tune with
the environment. John's
dedication is unsurpassed."
Finch is also providing
safe haven for the gopher
tortoises already living on"
the property, paying to dig
up the creatures which

Right now
May actually be

to buy a home. Consider these lacs-

INTEREST RATES NEAR RECORD LOWS


Today's interest rates are comparable to 40-year lows,
offering homebuyers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.


LARGE INVENTORY WON'T LAST


There are currently eleven thousand homes and
condominiums for sale along the Emerald Coast. We have
had a record inventory of homes on the market in recent
months, offering consumers the greatest choice in decades.

PRICES OVERALL HAVE STABILIZED
Contracts for home sales in August are up 4.3 percent'
and the outlook is for home prices to increase next year.


POSITIVE OUTLOOK


J..S" Former Federal Reserve
-:''- Chair Alan Greenspan recently
said that housing prospects are looking up. "Most of the
negatives in .housing are probably behind us. The fourth
quarter should be reasonably good, certainly better than
the third quarter."2 According to industry estimates, 2006
will be the.third-best year on record for home sales.'
REAL ESTATE IS A GREAT INVESTMENT
Homeownership is a safe, secure way to build long-
term wealth. The national median price of homes bought
ten years ago has increased 88 percent.3 The number of
US households is expected to increase 15 percent during
the next decade, creating a continued high demand for
housing.4

Christmas Reflections


figures show decreased turnout


By BRUCE COLLIER
City of DeFuniak Springs
Finance Director Sara W.
Bowers has the financial for
the 2006 Christmas Reflec-
tions light display, and they
show a decrease from those of
2005.
Bowers said that the "head


count" for visitors to the Lake
DeFuniak/Circle Drive holi-
day display was 14,765, and
that 149 auto passes were
sold. The latter figure is pre-
liminary, since more are to be
tallied.
Total revenue for 2006
was $48,022.75, down from


the 2005 figure of $51,798.45,
said Bowers.
Bowers speculated that
rising gasoline prices may
have played some part in the
decline of turnout and rev-
enue, "but I'm only speculat-
ing," she said.
"The 2005 figures were


less than 2004," she added.
Despite this, Christmas
Reflections will be able to do-
nate a pledged $5,000 each to
the city's skateboard park
and to the Chautauqua Hall
of Brotherhood, said Bowers.
"It's still in the black," she
said.

EDITORIAL


PERSONAL COMMENTS


LETTERS TO THE EDITOR




Prescription for ill-health
EDITOR's COMMENT
By RON KELLEY


In early November, I re-
ceived an opinion-editorial
column titled, "First Airfare,
Then Gas, Now Drugs." It was
sent to me by Lawrence A.
Hunter, Ph.D., of Washington
D.C. Hunter is the former
staff director of the congres-
sional Joint Economic Com-
mittee. He currently serves as
a consultant to the pharma-
ceutical industry.
In his column, Hunter
blasted the idea of putting
price controls on prescription
drugs, saying, in part, "For
those of us who are old
enough to remember the gas
crisis of the 1970s, "price con-
trols" are a four-letter word.
They were meant to control
1970s era-inflation, but they
actually resulted in higher
pump prices and shortages,
which weren't alleviated un-
til President Reagan removed
the controls in the 1980s.
"The same thing happened
with airfares. When price con-
trols were finally removed in
1981, prices fell
dramatically...the leading
voices in this effort aren't call-
ing them 'price controls' any
more. They're now using the
term 'price negotiations' -
insisting that government
should simply be allowed to
'negotiate' drug prices...One
such regulation almost cer-
tain to result from'negotiated
prices' would be the creation
of a single national list of
drugs, the so-called 'formu-
lary.' Seniors would then be
forced to choose their drugs
from the list rather than from
the wide variety of formular-
ies that vary from insurance
plan to insurance plan under
current law. Thus, 'negotiated
prices' will lead directly to the
rationing of drugs that are not
included on the national for-
mulary.
"There can be little doubt
that price controls would
raise prices and ration drugs.
But they would also discour-
-age research spending on new
life-saving and life-extending
medications. Worse still, price

controls for Medicare pre-
scription drugs would force
companies to divert research
funds into less risky but
also less promising product
lines that are not under price
controls but are of less value
to seniors. Price controls also
would add more bureau-
cratic red tape, cause short-
ages, of existing drugs, and
interfere with individual de-
cisions on healthcare."
After Hunter sent the col-
umn to me, he contacted me
and asked if I had published
it. Here is my reply:
"Dear Mr. Hunter,
I did receive your op-ed col-
umn last week, but I found
its logic faulty. While you and
I agree that price controls
are a doomed attempt to rein
in the out-of-control prices on
prescription drugs, we dis-
agree on the solution. The
reason price controls won't
work is because they do not
attack the root of the actual
problem.
What no one in the pre-
scription drug industry
wants to mention is the main
reason why people have to
spend themselves into the
poor house to buy their pre-
scription drugs or divest
themselves of all their
worldly goods and become
destitute so they can qualify
for a price break. The real
problem is the multi-billion
dollar cost of advertising pre-
scription drugs directly to
the consumer. The drug com-
panies make their profits
twice. First, they charge in-
flated high prices for the
drugs themselves and then
add in the exorbitantly high
cost of paying for continuous
nationwide advertising on
prime time television, on ra-
dio and in magazines.
This is a practice that is
forbidden in nearly every
other corner of the world.
However, in the U.S., drug
companies have found that
it's extremely profitable to
'sell' the patient on the drug
company's newest and most


m -


B -. a.- -


- --


expensive drugs before they
visit their doctor. Once there,
consumers demand the prod-
ucts these ads have con-
vinced them that they need.
Compounding the problem,
doctors, wanting to keep
their patients happy, hand
out prescriptions for new
drugs, even when the older,
less-expensive formulas
work just as well or better.
Want lower prescription
drug prices? Get rid ofdirect-
to-consumer advertising.
The billions spent on adver-
tising can stay in the pock-
ets of the drug companies,
more consumers will start
going to doctors and seeking
treatment and those who re-
ally need the medicines can
afford to buy them.
If consumers could diag-
nose and treat their own
medical problems, we could
dispense with doctors alto-
gether. However, I. think
you'll agree that such a tac-
tic would be a prescription
for disaster. That then begs
the question why are we
trying to 'sell' prescription
drugs to people who cannot
prescribe them? Money, of
course, and that's'bad medi-
cine' because people and doc-
tors will too often follow the
path of least resistance,
which is exactly what drug
companies are counting on.
As consumers, we should re-
member that drug compa-
nies are not seeking cures for
disease. No commercial en-
terprise would spend mil-
lions of dollars every year
trying to put themselves out
of business. Instead, drug
companies are seeking new
formulas for patenting ex-
pensive versions of the same
drugs to treat the symptoms
of disease.
The answer to high pre-
scription drug prices does
not require 'rocket-science.'
All it takes is the desire to
help sick people first and the
prescription drug corpora-
tions second."
I have never heard from
Mr. Hunter again.

Editor,
I hate to eat my words.
I want everyone to come and see what Miramar looks like
now. You have to see our beach after restoration. Old 98 has
been repaved with turn lanes. Ellis Drive has been repaved
and many other improvements in the area.
Looks like I jumped the gun with Cindy Meadows.
Miramar's face-life it long overdue, we deserve it. A lot of tax
money comes out of our area and it looks like finally we have
a CR-30A county commissioner that's giving some of it back.
Don't get me wrong. I still have absolutely no satisfaction
in my own neighborhood, but don't drive into my disastrous
neighborhood, Holiday Road. Chaparral estates that looks
more like a heavy industrial park, but drive the beach area.
Cindy Meadows is doing a great job. Yes, the 44-story condos
are still going up and fences still stand on county property
with locked gates. I am just so happy to see something major
being done in this area. A lot more could be done. Please
come and check out Old 98 while no vendor controls it this
winter. I think all of you will be impressed.
Cindy Meadows, I owe you an apology and here it is. I am
sorry for my past letters against you and thank you for mak-
ing our lives better and I hope we continue to have a com-
missioner that can get it done for everyone in Walton County
and not just the chosen few.

Strange Stories


&


Amazing Facts


A Western Pennsylvania man is trying to solve a mys-
tery that recently landed in his mailbox: a letter mailed
more than 50 years ago and addressed to a Frederick Zane
Yost.
The letter, with a 3-cent stamp and postmarked Oct. 26,
1954, was encased in a large Postal Service window enve-
lope. There is a return address -- in nearby Richland Town-
ship -- but no sender's name.
Brian McAteer said that the letter appears to be sealed
and has not been damaged, and that he will not open it.
However, he hasn't had any luck finding Yost. Among his
efforts have been to contact Yosts in the area, speak with
longtime residents and search on the Internet.
"I haven't given up trying to find him," McAteer, a road
foreman, told the Tribune-Democrat of Johnstown.
The newspaper reported that its archives show Yost's
parents, both of whom are dead, lived in Ferndale in 1954.
His father was a sports editor at the newspaper, which
reported that the younger Yost had moved to Florida.
Tad Kelley, a spokesman for the Postal Service in Pitts-
burgh, aid he could not comment specifically on the let-
ter without investigating.
"Sometimes pieces of mail do get lost behind equipment
or transporting equipment. ... It is infrequent, but every
once in a blue moon, it does happen," Kelley said. "No
matter how old it is, we will deliver it."
Ferndale is about 65 miles southeast of Pittsburgh.

Looking' for Love In All the

kids with these same bad
health habits?
A scary thought. But the
good news is that this prob-
lem is solvable. Parents sim-
ply need to change kids' diet
and exercise routines from
harmful to helpful..
"We could probably elimi-
nate 90 percent of the heart
attacks if we'd make sure our
kids were eating right and
getting enough exercise from
the start," says Dr. Henry
McGill, senior scientist
emeritus at the Southwest
Foundation for Biomedical
Research in San Antonio.
Southwest Foundation for
Biomedical Research is recog-
nized for the quality of its
basic research into the na-
ture, causes, prevention,
treatments, and cures for dis-
eases.

"What we've found
through literally decades of
study is that the beginning of
atherosclerosis (often called
hardening of the arteries) can
be detected in children as
young as 12 years old," says
McGill. "They may be in their
40s oi 50s or 60s when they
experience a heart attack, but
the build-up of deposits on
the artery walls began many
years earlier, when they were
kids."


Ai~~ .s: ~
k..l .*~-:?


and not enough exercise lead
to obesity, which has become
an epidemic in many devel-
oped nations and is the most
powerful risk factor for dia-
betes. Diabetes leads to an
array of health problems that
include heart attacks, blind-
ness, and kidney failure.
"We're seeing more kids
today with adult-type diabe-
tes than we've ever seen be-
fore. And, unfortunately, we
still have about 20 percent of
high school students in the
U.S. smoking," McGill said.
"And there's absolutely noth-


ing good you can say about
what smoking does to your
body."
McGill emphasizes that
the main things parents can
do is set a good example. "If
you're a parent, don't smoke,"
he says. "Eat healthy. Exer-
cise. If you're eating a lot of
Sjunk food, smoking, and let-
ting yourself become over-
weight, you're teaching your
kids to do the same thing.
But it doesn't cost a thing to
change those habits."
For more information on
the PDAY study, visit sfbr.org,


Groundbreaking study
Since 1987, McGill and re-
search scientists from 13
other institutions across the
country have been studying
risk factors for adult coronary
heart disease in a project
called Pathobiological Deter-
minants ofAtherosclerosis in
Youth (PDAY). They collected
tissue and data from about
3,000 young persons 15
through 34 years of age all
of whom died of accidents,
homicide, and suicide and
were autopsied in forensic
laboratories and measured
the atherosclerosis in their
arteries.
The PDAY results show
conclusively that the risk fac-
tors for adult coronary heart
disease affect the progression
of atherosclerosis beginning
in the teen years. The asso-
ciation is so strong and con-
sistent that a causal relation-
ship appears highly likely.
These results indicate that
prevention of adult coronary
heart disease should begin.
with control of risk factors
beginning in adolescence,
McGill said.

What can parents do?
Two common risk factors
that parents can address,
McGill said, are smoking and
obesity. Too many calories

Most federal government jobs do


not require taking written tests


Q: What is the procedure
for applying for a government
job? Is there a test? T.R.
A: No single test exists
that all government workers
must take. Most jobs with the
federal government, except
clerical jobs, do not require
written tests.
You can apply for most job's
with a resume or with a fed-
eral employment application.
The U.S. Office of Person-
nel Management is the offi-
cial source of federal job in-
formation.
For job listings and appli-
cation instructions, go to the
Web site
www.usajobs.opm.gov. Or, for
an automated listing by
phone, call 703-724-1850.
If you are interested in a
job in state government, you
should check with the N.C.
Office of State Personnel,
which coordinates job open-
ings. Many jobs with the state
require the applicant to fill
out the state employment
application, commonly called
PD-107. The personnel
office's Web site has informa-
tion at www.osp.state.nc.us.

Q: I'm trying to find out the
name of the TV series that
Lorenzo Lamas starred in
where he rode a motorcycle.
-L.T.
A: "Renegade "was on tele-
vision (USA Network) from
1992 to 1997. Lamas was on
that show between his roles
on "Falcon Crest," a nighttime
soap of the 1980s, and his cur-
rent gig on the daytime soap
"The Bold and the Beautiful."
On "Renegade," Lamas
played a bounty hunter
named Reno Raines.
Collections of the shows
are available on DVD.

IN THlE KNOW


Q: A friend of mine has a
relative who is a freshman in
high school. A company called
Edifi sent her some informa-
tion about a college scholar-
ship. Do you know anything
about the company? They
asked me because the cost to
fill out the forms was more
than $1,000. M.H.
A: Many companies that
appear to be offering scholar-
ships are instead offering
scholarship-related services.
For a fee, students and their
parents can get help filling
out applications. Some com-
panies are marketing their
own "scholarships" that turn
out to be loans.

Services of Albany, N.Y., has
an unsatisfactory record with
the Better Business Bureau.
The bureau has received
more than 40 complaints in
the past year about the com-
pany.
There are reliable sources
for students and their fami-
lies who need help with finan-
cial aid. The Internet.is a'good
place to investigate sources of
financial aid. One Web site is
www.students.gov, the federal
government's starting point
for higher education.

Q: I bought some tanger-
ines. They were marked "not
for distribution" in several
states that were listed. It also
says that there were some
chemicals with wax to main-
tain freshness. I'm wondering
if these chemicals are hazard-
ous and if that's why there is

Fruit can't be shipped outside
the state without proper per-
mits and without the tags.
Canker is a bacterium that
causes citrus fruit to develop
unattractive spots. Canker
doesn't harm people who eat
citrus, but it can devastate
citrus groves.
The "not for distribution"
tag lists other citrus-produc-
ing states. The fruit from
Florida isn't allowed in other
states that produce citrus, to
keep canker from spreading.
The other states are Arizona,
California Hawaii, Louisiana
and Texas (and some U.S. ter-
ritories). The hurricanes from
2004 and 2005 are blamed for
the spread of canker in
Florida. About two-thirds of
all Florida citrus is affected.

In the face of serious ill-
ness, a group of Crestview
dentists are helping save the
practice of a DeFuniak
Springs colleague.
Dr. Mark Kirby, who has
practiced in DeFuniak
Springs for about 20 years,
was diagnosed with esoph-
ageal cancer in August of last'
year. Treatment for the dis-
ease has included both radia-
tion and chemotherapy and
has kept him from his prac-
tice.
SHowever, that practice is
not in jeopardy due to the
outpouring of support from
dentists in nearby communi-
ties. Doctors from as far away
as Fort Walton Beach and
Panama City have offered
their assistance to keep meet-
ing the needs of Kirby's pa-
tients.
In fact, it is a group of den-
tists from Crestview that has
kept the practice going in the
past few months, volunteer-
ing their time to see patients
at Kirby's DeFuniak Springs
office. Drs. Terence Barnes,
Larue Curenton, and Al
Tillman travel to DeFuniak
three days a week to help out.
Of their involvement,
Curenton said, "Dr. Tillman
really was the driving force.
They have such a close friend-
ship that he felt like he
needed to help him out."

Dr. Mark Kirby


The friendship between
Kirby and Tillman began
when the two were students
at the University of Florida
and has spanned several de-
cades. Tillman called it "a
blessing" to be able to help his
friend.'He said, "Sometimes
in life you get an opportunity
to help. That's the time to
step up."
The three dentists' actions
have not only aided a col-
league, but also the town of
DeFuniak Springs where
dentists are few. "The town
really needs his practice,"
Curenton said.
Dr. Mark Kirby will un-
dergo major surgery at a
treatment center in Houston
on Jan. 24. Afterward, he
plans to return to his prac-
tice.

Plans underway for 2007 Boeing

Championship, area's largest sporting event


By DOTTYNIST
The 2007 Boeing Champi-
onship at Sandestin prom-
ises to be bigger and better
than last year's event.

The golf tournament, the
area's largest sporting event,
is now five months away.
Championship organizer
and Buffalo Rock Company
CEO Jimmy Lee appeared at
the Walton County Chamber
of Commerce's Jan. 3 lun-
cheon at the Sandestin
Beach Hilton with an update
on the championship; which
is to continue to bear the
name "Boeing" only through
this year.
Lee said that Boeing will


be dropping out as major
sponsor after the 2007 event.
This leaves that opportunity
open for another interested
party, and, in addition, there
are a variety of sponsorship
opportunities for businesses
in this year's event.
Lee expressed apprecia-
tion for supporters of the
2006 Boeing Championship
and to Sandestin for serving
as the venue.
"We've got a great product
to sell," he told the gathering.
In addition to seeking
sponsors, Lee and other tour-
nament organizers, includ-
ing Larry Long, are recruit-
ing participants, among
them some big name players.


"We'll have a great field,"
Lee assured the attendees.
In addition to players and
sponsorship dollars, approxi-
mately 750 volunteers will be
needed.

merce president/CEO, en-

Committee

to develop

beach

activity

rule

changes

By DOTTYNIST
Due to controversy over
proposed changes to the
Walton County Beach
Activity Ordinance, a second
scheduled public hearing has
been cancelled. Instead, the
Walton County
Commissioners are seeking
interested volunteers to serve
on a committee that will
develop recommendations to
update the county beach
ordinance.
" Major point of contention
at the initial (Jan. 9) hearing
was a proposed change that
would have closed to driving
a 600-foot-long area of beach
adjacent to the 66-foot-wide
beach access and boat launch
area at Lakeshore Drive in
Inlet Beach.
This area at Inlet Beach
and one at Grayton Beach are
the only places where driving
on the beach is legal in
Walton County. A county
vehicle permit is required.
Assistant CouAty
Administrator Shirl Williams
explained the reason for the
closing of the beach driving

SWFD narrows.


search for new


fire chief


By JEFFREYPOWELL
A search committee for the
South Walton Fire District
(SWFD) has narrowed the
field of potential candidates
to replace outgoing Chief Les
Hallman to seven individu-
als.
Destin Fire Control Dis-
trict (DFCD) Chief Tuffy
Dixon, a search committee
member, briefed members of
the SWFD at the Jan. 8,
regular meeting that final in-
terviews would be conducted
starting at 9 a.m. on Feb 5.
"Hopefully, by that evening
you will have a new chief,"
Dixon said.
A total of 57 applications
were received for the posi-
tion.
In other business SWFD
Chairman Maurice Gilbert,
notified board members that


Fire Commissioner Brian
Christenson had contacted
one of the potential candi-
dates for the chiefs position.
"As chairman it distress,
me to do this," Gilbert said.
Gilbert stressed that the
call made by Chistenson, a
lieutenant with the Destin
DFCD and husband to a
SWFD firefighter, was "inap-
ppRrpiate" and "a very seri-
ous problem."
Co m mi ii:on e r
Christenson responded by
reading a letter prepared for
the meeting. In the letter,
Christenson stated that he
thought he knew the appli,
cant, who lives in Iowa, anq
did not intent ionally circum-
vent-the search committee's
authority. "I apologize and
this will never happen
again." Christenson said.

Point Washington P.O. still a possibility


THIS SMALL HISTORIC post office building served the
Point Washington community for well over half a century
before service there was suspended in August 2006.


By DOTTY NIST
Their small but beloved
community post office has
been much missed by Point
Washington residents since
being closed down in August
2006.
However, according to
United States Postal Service
(USPS) spokesperson Joseph
Breckenridge, no decision
has been made to leave the
community without a post
office on a permanent basis.
"We have not terminated
it," Breckenridge said.
It appears unlikely that
the 288-square-foot building
on Gilmore Street that had
served as the community's
,post office since the late
1940s will again serve that
purpose.
SThe building had been un-


der lease to the USPS, and
in July 2006 the USPS noti-
fied postal customers in
Point Washington that the
lease had been "terminated
due to the sale of the prop-
erty."
Customers were told that
services would be suspended
at the Point Washington Post
Office at the close of business
on Aug. 25, 2006.
Breckenridge said that
since that time the USPS has
attempted to find a location
in the community where
postal services could be pro-
vided on a "contract station"
basis. He explained that they
have not succeeded in doing
so.
He added that ultimately
the USPS plans to secure
land and build a post office


facility in Point Washington,
particularly in view of
growth that is expected in
the community in the future.
Funding to do that is cur-
rently a challenge,
Breckenridge said, due to the'
reduction in revenues that
the USPS is experiencing
from lower and declining vol-
ume in first class mail ser-
vice. This class of mail has
been the USPS's biggest rev-
enue producer, he explained.
In 2000 the USPS had an-,
nounced plans to construct a
900-square-foot modular
post office facility in the
Point Washington area and
relocate the post office to that
location. At a public meeting
in July 2000, a number of
residents had criticized that
plan as not being in harmony


with the historic character of
the community, which was
settled in the late 1800s.
Breckenridge said that
soon after the plans were an-
nounced, budget cuts elimi-
nated planned post office fa-
cilities that were not yet con-
structed.
"We missed our window
right there," he said.

Since the suspension of
service, Point Washington
postal customers have had
the option of using the Santa
Rosa Beach Post Office for
postal retail services and
post office box rentals, and
there has been no change in
street and curbside delivery,
which had already been pro-
vided through the Santa
Rosa Beach Post Office.

a great way to start the new
year. Beaches of South Wal-
ton hosted more than 2.6 mil-
lion visitors last year and the
Walton County TDC is build-
ing its welcome committee.
The Coastal Corps program
and the Visitor Information
Center provide two great op-
portunities to welcome visi-
tors to the area and educate
them on beach safety and the
diverse amenities Beaches of
South Walton has to offer.
On Monday, March 12 at 4
p.m., Coastal Corps will hold
its first meeting of the year
at the Visitor Information
Center located on the corner
of Hwy. 331 and Hwy. 98.
Coastal Corps, a program
of the Clean Beaches Coun-
cil, is a national volunteer


service initiative aimed at
preservingAmerica's coastal
heritage. Here in Walton
County, Coastal Corps volun-
teers focus on family beach
safety.. It's easy to get in-
volved, there is no age limit
or special skills needed, and
the time spent volunteering
is time residents already
spend at the beach.

Volunteers sign up for\spe-
cific stretches of beach and
educate beachgoers on beach
safety topics such as the flag
warning system and rip cur-
rents, and provide beach
safety tips. Coastal Corp vol-
unteers coupled with Walton
County's lifeguard program
are critical in establishing
direct interaction with
beachgoers to ensure they
are familiar with the flag
warning system and beach
safety, while enjoying the
area's pristine beaches.


"This is my second year
participating in the Coastal
Corps program," said Geri
Dragos, a resident of Santa
Rosa Beach. "I find the pro-
gram very rewarding. I spend
a few hours of my morning
educating the visitors on
beach safety and they are
very appreciative of the infor-
mation and literature I pro-
vide them."

If spending time at the
beach does not sound appeal-
ing, the Visitor InfQormation
Center is another great way
to meet and educate visitors
on beach safety, activities,
dining, shopping and other
amenities available in the
area. Volunteers provide visi-
tors with an array ofinforma-
tion to help make their expe-
rience memorable.
"Volunteering at the Visi-
tor Information Center has
been a wonderful experience


for me," said Clarence Hinch.
"Every day is new and excit-
ing. Over the years, I have
been able to meet a plethora
of great people and make new
friends."
The amount of time spent .
volunteering is completely up
to each volunteer. Volunteers
can contribute a few hours a
week or month, or during a
particular season. No special
skills are required, simply
some knowledge of the desti-
nation, a friendly disposition,
outgoing personality, and a
desire to meet new people.
The Walton County TDC pro-
vides the training and re-
sources needed.
For more information on
volunteer opportunities,
please contact Carley
McMillian, Walton County
TDC customer service coor-
dinator at (850) 267-1216 or

tents, campsites, clothes,
weaponry and tools, the re-
enactment will educate and
entertain.
Every afternoon, tea and
homemade delicacies are
served at the Victorian Tea.
Women in days-gone -by at-
tire, meet and greet those who


attend the event, and relate
the history of the Victorian
home in which the tea takes
place.
These events combine his-
tory from past events and
educate about the future,
while providing entertain-
ment.
The Chautauqua Assembly
is now in its twelfth year and
continues to bring in a vari-
ety of entertainment. Each
year, the line-up becomes in-
creasingly more impressive
and the crowds tend to grow
larger from year-to-year.
Organizers are currently
seeking volunteers for the
four-day event, Many are
needed to assist in the
event's every-day process,
including ticket-takers,
crowd-directors and greeters.
The assembly brings in re-
gional and international visi-
tors to the city of DeFuniak
Springs, which has come to
rely and be supported by lo-
cals attending and sponsor-
ship.
For more information on
the assembly, tickets, sched-
ules or volunteering, call the
Florida Chautauqua Assem-
bly (850) 892-7613 or log on

3 percent a year, so that is good news for those with no plans
to move. "There is no cap on property that is not home-
steaded," Stafford said, "which is one of the reason rentals
have gone up significantly over the last couple of years."
ECAR's north Walton director Sally Merrifeld said the
north end of Walton County has been very fortunate and
very stable real estate wise.
"The market has remained consistent. Housing prices have
stabilized and I wouldn't anticipate them going down any
more. In the north end we have three bedroom, two bath
homes in the range of 1250 to 1350 square feet selling for
$139,000 to $179,000. In Freeport that type of house may
not even be available. I wouldn't anticipate the type of house
we sell to be available in the sound end. Our sales here are
work force housing and the location works well for someone
working in the south part of the county or Crestview," she
said.
Merrifeld also noted the low interest rates hovering around
6 percent and she said that while insurance rates have in-
creased, the effect on dwellers in northern Walton County
has not been as. dramatic as in other parts of the county. "It's
been a good year. We are real pleased with last year and saw
an increase in sales over 2005."
Stafford said the market would dictate sales for the most
part and also dictate housing prices. "The market will
straighten itself out. Value is what someone is willing to pay
for it. Appraisers find comparable properties to determine a
property's worth. They use market data to reach this num-
ber," he said.
The second largest year in real estate sales was 2005 be-
fore the arrival of Hurricanes Dennis and Katrina, which
shut things down for several months. Stafford noted it is not
fair to compare.2006 to 2004 and 2005.
"Local realtors never will see another 2004. It was the
single largest year in real estate history for the entire coun-
try with the highest sales volume in history. With low inter-
est rates, investors were buying property right and left and
the pace was rapid," he said. Stafford said it is possible condo
development will slow down a bit in 2007, but overall he
expects sales in 2007 to be comparable to 2002 and 2003.

By BRUCE COLLIER
Alfonso Cuaron's film
"Children of Men" is based
upon a 1993 sci-fi novel of
the same name by British
writer P.D. James, best
known for her mysteries.
The story is set in Great
Britain, about 20 years in
the future. For reasons never
stated, the human race is no
longer capable of reproduc-
ing, and thus is coming to an
end, one person at a time.
The novel was written pre-
9/11 and the global war on
terrorism, and Cuaron takes
a risk, layering on a more up-
dated political gloss.
The U.K. has become an
oppresssive police state, with
maximum efforts devoted to
detaining and deporting all
foreigners as presumptive
terrorists. The public is re-
.peatedly admonished to re-
port all "suspicious" activity
and the whereabouts of for-
eigners. In the novel, the
country is ruled by a dicta-
tor called the Warder. In the
film, a department of"Home-
land Security" is calling the
fascist shots. Cuaron, who co-
wrote the screenplay, prob-
ably figured he couldn't im-
prove on the already-
Orwellian name of such an
entity.
Clive Owen plays
Theodore "Theo" Faron, a
burnt-out bureaucrat who lu-
bricates his gray existence
with applications of whiskey
and occasional visits to Jas-
per Palmer, played by
Michael Caine.
Jasper is a reclusive
former political cartoonist,
who spends his days culti-
vating marijuana, listening
to 1960s rock anthems, and
tending his wife. His wife is
a former journalist, appar-
ently tortured into a coma-
tose state by some bad guys.
The exposition-by-newspa-
per clipping went by too fast
for me to be sure, but it was


probably those Homeland Se-
curity folks.
That's a.problem with the
film, one that requires some
getting around. Cuaron is
quick to set up the good guys
and the bad guys in a rather
facile, take-it-or-leave-it po-
lemical fashion. Journalists,
"activists," and back-to-na-
ture hippies are held up for
our unqualified admiration,
while everyone else is appar-
ently inexcusably bad. Un-
fortunately for his message,
it soon becomes obvious that
the only people as bad as the
police are the activists oppos-
ing them. Or perhaps that
was his message.
In any event, former ac-
tivist Theo's already lousy
life is further loused up by
the reappearance of his
former love, the still actively
activist Julian Taylor, played
by Julianne Moore. Julian is
associated with an outlawed
group called the Fish, osten-
sibly fighting to help disen-
franchised foreigners. The
Fish have netted a miracu-
lous rarity, a pregnant
woman, and they need
Theo's help.

The mother-to-be is Kee,
played by Claire-Hope
Ashitey. Like any good po-
litical group, the Fish see
Kee and her baby as a price-
less resource for their cause.
A few are decent enough to
show some respect for her
wishes, notably a sympa-
thetic midwife, played by
Pam Ferris.
The Fish want Theo to use
his political connections to
smuggle Kee to the coast.
Once there, yet another
group, the mysterious yet be-
neficent again you have to
trust the screenwriters on
this Human Project will
shelter mother and child,
and, I suppose, galvanize the
world out of its despair, break
the chains of tyranny, give

peace a chance, free Huey,
etc.
Cuaron is enough of a sto-
ryteller to know that the road
to movie heaven always
passes through hell, and he
does a good job conducting us
there.
The world of "Children of
Men" looks washed out,
grainy, and perpetually
damp, even for England.
People trudge around half-
dead with anxiety and men-
tal exhaustion. Life is pretty
much a case of waiting to die,
with the government freely
distributing a painless sui-
cide drug called Quietus for
those who can't wait. "You
Choose When" is its oddly-fa-
miliar marketing slogan.
When the Fish turn out to
be pretty much the terroris-
tic fanatics the government
says they are, Theo and Kee
have to go it alone. This is
where the film cuts the po-
liticizing and gets more inter-
esting. Movies like this can
be a pain to watch unless you
have a person, not a cause,
to root for. Fortunately, Owen
and Ashitey provide us the
goods.
There are also at least two
excellent supporting perfor-
mances. Peter Mullan plays
an amusingly corrupt cop
named Syd, and Romanian
actress Oana Pellea steals all
of her scenes as Marichka, a
babbling gypsy packrat
with a heart of gold.
Michael Caine is one of my


favorite actors, but he's
stooping here as Jasper. He
spends his screen time'do-
ing "pull my finger" jokes,
toking up, and looking so
much like a superannuated
John Lennon that I couldn't
help thinking Cuaron was
sending us yet another mes-
sage, one I'd rather not think
about.
"Children of Men" will
take a respectable place with
others of its genre, cereberal
dystopian films like "1984,"
"Fahrenheit 451," and "THX
1138." It also has enough ul-
tra-violerice to lump it in
with more straightforward
action sci-fi like"Mad Max"
and "V for Vendetta."
It would easy to call this
film "profound," if for no
other'reason than its chilling
depiction of how our present
climate of fear and distrust
could be taken to a logical ex-
treme.
What is missing is any se-
rious attempt to show how
this is connected to the real
premise, the apparent death
sentence that has been im-
posed on humanity. Aside
from a little stoned philoso-
phizing by Jasper, the ques-
tion of"why is it over for us?"
is subordinated by Cuaron's
desire to make a political
statement about terrorism
and the extremism it breeds.
Of course, that is his right
and artistic privilege, but did
he really need P.D. James to
do it?


FROM FRONT


area in Inlet Beach as being due to the beach being eroded
back to the property line in that segment, so that any driving
would be on private property.
"We're losing our rights on the beach," 21-year Inlet Beach
resident Valerie Simmons warned in objecting to the change.
Simmons pointed out that driving on the beach may be
the only means of access for older residents who are mobility
challenged.
She did not believe that the closing of the section to driving
was appropriate, given that the only request to do so had
come from the owner of beachfront property in that section.
"We own all the way to the Gulf of Mexico," the property
owner countered.
He complained of people parking their vehicles close to
his home, driving over the dunes and sea oats, and partying
on the beach next to his house.
"We've had young children almost get run over. It's a bad
situation," he said.
District 1 Commissioner Scott Brannon was aware of a
previous county commission voting to close the section to
driving but noted that the vote had not resulted in that change
being made in the beach ordinance.
The commissioners directed county legal services and staff
to research that situation and report back with information.
Former county commissioner Van Ness Butler, whose
family had sold to the state the Grayton Beach property now
under lease to the county for beach driving, called for "a good
hard look at our beach laws."
He warned that the county is liable for any accidents on
the beach driving area as a condition of the lease.
With close to 1000 beach vehicle permits issued, Butler
warned that any increase in beach driving would surely result
in someone getting hurt, possibly a child.
Among other proposed changes to the ordinance was a
requirement that beach chairs, umbrellas, tents and other
personal articles be removed from the beach at night to
prevent interference with sea turtle nesting, beach
maintenance or emergency vehicle access.
Beachfront property owner Ed Goodwin was worried that
this change would prohibit him from pulling his boat off the
beach and storing it adjacent to his home.
Following comments and concerns expressed by several
other citizens regarding the proposals, the commissioners
voted unanimously to cancel the second public hearing on
the proposed changes, which had previously been set for Feb.
27 at the South Walton County Courthouse Annex.
Instead, following up on a suggestion by County
Commission Chairman Ken Pridgen, they opted to direct
Williams to set up a committee, to include Butler and other
concerned citizen volunteers, to develop alternative
recommendations for changes to the ordinance. All interested
persons will be encouraged to participate.

area one has never seen before should also be an opportunity to
learn something of the history of that location.
Case in point, north central New York State.
For people who have never visited the state, the phrase 'New
York' conjures up only images of skyscrapers, millions of people
crowded onto a small, dingy, crime-infested island; others may
think of strange exotic places like Harlem, Chinatown, Broad-
way or Wall Street. However, there's so much more to New York
than that. Away from the Big Apple, there are vast expanses of
timberland that play host to all kinds of wildlife, small towns,
rivers, lakes and plenty of back roads.
At the beginning of the 19th century, New Yorkers, led by
Governor De Witt Clinton, had the vision and conviction to build
the Erie Canal, a 363-mile long waterway connecting the
Hudson River at Albany with Lake Erie at Buffalo. Opened in
1825, the Erie Canal provided the first all-water link between
the Atlantic seaboard and the Great Lakes. It quickly became
the most successful and influential canal in North America.
More than just a heroic feat of engineering, the Erie Canal
opened the interior of the continent, providing a safe and reli-
able route for westbound migrants and manufactured goods and
eastbound products of forests, farms and mines.






















IMPROVEMENTS TO THE CANAL'S lock system have left
this old lock high and dry.
Today, the Erie Canal is used primarily for recreational purposes
and proceeds past Rochester, the site of yet another fascinating
historical location.
Mount Hope Cemetery is the resting place for many
notableindividuals, two of which are of particular interest.
Susan B. Anthony (1820-1906) was prohibited from speaking at
a temperance rally in Albany, New York, in 1852 because of her
sex. She spent the rest of her life seeking equality for women. An-
thony proposed the 19th Amendment to the U.S. constitution.
Known as the AnthonyAedm ent, it gave voting rights to women
and was adopted in 1920 fourteen years after Susan's death.
Frederick Douglass (1818-1895) was a former slave who became
one of the great American anti-slavery leaders of the 1800s.
Douglass was born into slavery in Maryland, but in 1838, at age
20, he escaped to
freedom in New York. A few year later, he went to work for aboli-
tionist William Lloyd Garrison, traveling and speaking on behalf
of Garrison's paper "The Liberator." In later years, he became a
personal friend of President Abraham Lincoln.
The Erie Canal and Mount Hope Cemetery are but two of many
historically significant locations one will find in north-central New
York State.
Instead of taking a bite out of the Big Apple, perhaps it's time to
see the "other New York."

run. The 24-year-old Harris
played collegiately at Liberty,
where he began as a wide re-
ceiver and was moved to de-
.fensive back during his jun-
ior year. He returned two of
his six interceptions for
touchdowns, including a
school-record 96-yard return
during his junior year. Har-

Saban


back


at Bama
By CHUCK HINSON
Last Wednesday, the
crowds of Alabama fans
greeted his plane and then
cheered him on again as the
new head football coach, Nick
Saban, finally announced
that he was coming to Bama.
After five weeks of search-
ing, interviewing and practi-
cally begging, the Tide wel-
comed their fourth coach in
five years to Tuscaloosa. With
the cheers came afat salary
of nearly $30 million and an
eight year contract making
Saban the highest paid coach
in NCAA history.
With the explosion of ex-
citement at last week's "meet
and greet," the Alabama fans
and alumni say this is the
turning point they have
needed to get the football pro-
gram back on its feet and
headed in the right direction.
Saban left his post as head
coach for the Miami Dol-
phins, to head back to the
SEC.
Mal Moore told reporters
that Saban brings a proven
record to the program and his
name will help in recruiting.
A subject that has not settled
well with most fans and
alumni for the past three or
four years.
Saban led the LSU Tigers
to a national championship
victory in January of 2003
and boasted a record in the
NCAA of 92-42-1 with Michi-
gan State, LSU and Toledo.
He has served as head coach
for the Miami Dolphins for
the past two years.
In the past five years,
Saban is the first coach that
played at Alabama that has
come back to Tuscaloosa to be
the head football coach, with
head football coaching expe-
rience. He has been the most
highly-profiled coach since
the retirement of Bear


Bryant in 1982.
With the amazing $30 mil-
lion dollar price tag that
lured Saban in, Alabama
seems to have given the
coach "god-status" and have

vember 3 at Starkville, will
now take place on Saturday,
November 10. The game with
LSU at Bryant-Denny Sta-
dium in Tuscaloosa, origi-
nally slated for Saturday,
November 10, will now take
place on Saturday, November
3.
CBS reported its house-
hold rating at 3.1/7 or a 3%
increase from last year for
college football. The Decem-
ber 2nd SEC Championship
game between Florida and
Arkansas produced a 4.5/8
rating or a 13 percent in-
crease over last year's game
between Georgia and LSU.
ESPN on ABC's coverage of
the November 18 Michigan at
Ohio State game attracted 21
million viewers, drawing the
largest TV audience for a
regular season game since
the 1993 Florida State at
Notre Dame game, which pro-
duced 22 million viewers.
ESPN's weekly Thursday
night series produced its two
most viewed games ever (the
November 2 West Virginia-
Louisville game and the No-
vember 9 Louisville-Rutgers
game), averaging 4.6 million
households en route to its
most-viewed season with an
average of 2.5 million house-
holds.
After serving as a walk-on
trying to get a roster spot
with the Troy University foot-
ball team, former Wakulla
quarterback Tanner Jones hit
pay dirt. Jones was put on
scholarship for next season
after being red-shirted in
2006 and will have four years
remaining of eligibility.

A. 'Knight gets record


S7- 880th win, joins elite team


NICK SABAN


put him high on the pedestal
of coaching icons. The record-
breaking salary that was in
his eight-year contract is
staggering to even those
coaches that who have been
with the the NCAA for 30 or
more years, and even a few
of those coaches say that is a
ridiculous sum of money to
pay one man.
Reports are already coming
from inside sources who are
furious about the outrageous
salary. Many of those com-
plaining are with the pro-
gram or in the same confer-
ence as Alabama.
Many know that it was the
money and the "open any
door" policy that Alabama
showed Saban to lure him to
Tuscaloosa. They still feel it
is an inappropriate teaching
tool to many students. Know-
ing that a high-profile name
like Spurrier, Bowden,
Meyer, Tuberville and now
Saban can help drastically
when it comes to recruiting,
it still sets the wrong mood
for the institution and the
overall ethics of.the school.
Weeks of denial and Saban
repeating to the press and to
the Miami Dolphin organiza-
tion, "I am not going to Ala-
bama and I am staying at
Miami," heard every week.
Many said they felt that
Saban was going to take the
job all along once they hit a
top salary, but lied to the na-
tion since he was still under
contract with Miami and was
in mid-season.
Saban left the Dolphins
with three years remaining


on his contract, just in time
to get on' board the Bama
bandwagon since the "dead
period" for recruiting ended
this past Friday. He knew
when to play his cards and
at what price to hold out for,
say those who have been fol-
lowing Saban's trail to the
heart of dixie over the past
month.
The Tide had a losing sea-
son after their loss to Okla-
homa in the Independence
Bowl. Their season ended
with a 67 record.
Alabama fans, alumni and
players hope that Saban can
come through for them and
put Alabama back in the
spotlight alongside Auburn
during the times of recruit-
ment and when they hit the
field next season. Words of
advice have already been
swarming that even though
Saban has the high profile
name and the record to fol-
low, if his first two years
don't impress, he can join
those in the unemployment
line that already served
their time as head football
coach and have already ex-
perienced the "love" from
the Alabama Alumni Asso-
ciation.

892-3232


By CHUCK HINSON
A little more than a week
ago, the man who shouted at
players, cursed officials and
threw temper tantrums, has
entered the NCAA history
books as the all-time
winningest coach for Division
I basketball. Bob Knight hit
the 880th victory mark on
New Year's Day.

Some have referred to him
as ornery, mean, hate-
driven, arrogant and a few
more choice names, but now
he is known as the
winningest coach to hit the
NCAA basketball court.
He got the win after his
Texas Tech Red Raiders had
to fight for a win over New
Mexico, 70-68.

Coaches Dean Smith,
Steve Alford, John Havlicek
and Fuzzy Zoeller were all in
West Texas two weeks ago to
see if the coach could pull off
the win, but Texas Tech
couldn't grant Knight's wish
until New Year's Day.
For more than a week, spe-
cial effects technicians,
videographers, photogra-
phers, press and a host of
well-wishers followed Knight
and the Red Raiders around
waiting for his triumphant
victory. Once he had achieved
the goal, the confetti fell, the
videos of his career shined on
the scoreboard' and friends
and family gathered on the
court.
Knight is already in the
Hall of Fame. He got there


SCORES

Ponce de Leon 55,
Bozeman 13: Lacey Griffin
led the scoring drive for the
Ponce de Leon with 14 points
as they blasted Bozeman.
The Lady Pirates only al-
lowed them seven points in
the first half and only six in
the second half.
Other Ponce de Leon scor-
ers included Mary Howes
with 10 points; Brooke
Johnson, 8; Jennifer Grant,
6; Maggie Wright, 5; Daydra
Brown, 4; Alicia Davis, 3,


due to his 1976 perfect sea-
son that has not yet been du-
plicated, three national
championships and a record
that stood as of Jan. 1 at 880-
354.
Once the 66-year-old
Knight steps down and re-
tires probably close to the
Texas university, his son Pat
Smith. will take over. But if
it is like Bobby Bowden and
'Florida State, or Joe "Pa"
Paterno and Penn State, who
knows when that day of de-
scent will be.

Knight's career has been
followed closely over the past
30 years. It has not always
been his winning seasons
that have been brought to
light in the media.
Some say it was the Lou
Holtz, Notre Dame syndrome
when Holtz grabbed his foot-
ball players by the face mask
to shock some "sense" into
their heads. Knight did the
same thing.

It was not only his lashing
out at his own players, it was
his fiery attitude that many
times landed him in hot wa-
ter.
From punching out a police
officer in Puerto Rico, to curs-
ing the officials, being
thrown out of games and
even throwing a chair across
the floor during a game, Bob
"Knight has made a name for
himself with the school offi-
cials, college basketball fans
and the press.
It was not surprising or

Boys
Freeport 66, Altha 60: It
was all celebration for Free-
port as they took down Altha
in a close match. The Bull-
dogs got even with the Wild-
cats after suffering a 30-point


unusual to see players crying
after a confrontation on the
sideline with Knight. Even
more so to see the players
leave the court after Knight
took them out of the game.
No matter what Coach Bob
Knight has done in the past
to get his face in the paper,
or name mentioned on radio
talk shows, he has always
been known as a motivator.
He has inspired teams to try,
a little harder, made games
a little more exciting and has
kept university faculty and
administrators on their toes.
Knight's record is being
trailed by Arizona's Lute
Olson with 772 wins. At 72
and a contract that runs un-
til 2011, he is not likely to
make up the game-win differ-
ence.
He is nick named the gen-
eral because of the start he
got in the army when he be-
gan coaching at the age of 24.
Knight admits that though
impressive, the most impres-
sive aspect of coaching would
be to tie or pass UCLA's John
Wooden and the 10 national
titles he won in a 12-year
span. He also acknowledges
the winningest coach as be-
ing Tennessee's women's bas-
ketball coach Pat Summitt
who reigns with 925 wins
and Harry Statham of NAIA
McKendree College in Leba-
non, ILL, who has won the
most men's games at a four-
year college, 925 wins.
Knight said he looks for-
ward to many more years on
the basketball courtside.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, JANUARY 4, 2007


BY DR. ROBERT M. JAYE
In Isaiah 39:14 are found
these words: "O Lord, I am
oppressed; undertake for
me." Are you oppressed with
poverty, or debt, or the fear
of unemployment? Are you
under ill health? Have you
the consciousness of sin? All
these cases of oppression are
included in this prayer. They
may be handed over to our
gracious Creator, with the
certainty that He is as will-
ing as He is able to help you
in any or all of these difficul-
ties.

We can know God through
Christ. Verse 15 reads in


part, "What shall I say, He
hath spoken for me, and
Himself hath done it." You
remember the story of
Hezekiah. He had been a re-
ligious man, maintianing the
temple services. He had a
close friendship with Isaiah,
yet had not met face to face
with God. As a result, he saw
God's work with the restora-
tion of his health for years to
come.
Some persons learn to
trust God through sickness,
loneliness, or the pressure of
overwhelming sorrow. Then
the life of the spirit of that
person unfolds to God as does
a flower in spring.


Verse 17 of our chapter work! Now judge His heart.
teaches that at the pit we can It has no limit. By that love
learn of God's love. How can He has, He has put our sins
we measure God's love? behind His back into a place
Come and stand beneath the of forgetfuless. His is a love
stars! There is God's haridi- that will never let us go.

Take the hand of Jesus to
steady you. Look down into
the whole of the pit from
which you have been re-
deemed. Then look up toward
the throne of God to which


He went after His Ascension.
Recall His own words:
"Where I am, there ye may
be also." Trust Him to under-
take your life and help you
to be holy, for He is holy.

Revelational, .....
B?... Knowledge
By 4r.,Charles
Satterwhite
Pastor, Freeport UMC

Let me say up front-if you have a need the Freeport
United Methodist Church will intercede with you until
you hear from God. This church does not play games, we
mean business with God.
In the first three chapters in Revelation, Jesus did
not tell the churches they were perfect in His eyes. No,
He revealed to them their true condition. He told them
of their sins. Without compromise, He placed on them
the demand to be overcomers, each in their own unique
and difficult circumstance.
Like them, we must know our need. The souls we want
saved dwell here, in a world system structured by lies,
illusions and rampant corruption.
Our old natures are like old shoes. We can relax and
be in the flesh instantly without even realizing it.
The enemies which defeat us are hidden and latent
within us! Therefore, the IHoly Spirit must be allowed to
expose our foes before we/can conquer them! The heart
is deceitful than all else. and is desperately sick; who canr
understand it? (Jer. 17:9). Who can discern his errors?
Acquit me of hidden faults. Also, keep back your servant
from presumptuous sins; let them not rule over me; then
I shall be blameless, and I shall be acquitted of great
transgression (Ps. 19:12-13). Repent, confess your sin,
let Jesus rule and reign. Sunday school 8:45 a.m.; wor-
ship 10 am; 6 p.m. Study; Wednesday, prayer and anoint-
ing for sick; WZEP Sounds of The Spirit 7:05-7:30 a.m.
each Sunday morning.
Stop by here on your way to eternity!


You already know what a will does.

Preplanning does more.

Preplanning is a simple thing you can do
to ease burdens on your family at a difficult time.
No other form of preparation does all of these things:


* Makes decisions ahead of time
* Ensures wishes are carried out
* Prevents overspending
* Takes the pressure of selection
process offyour family
Keeps costs at today's prices when
paid in advance
We specialize in preplanning. Call us and
we can answer any questions you may have.

Paxton boys defeat

South Walton 52 39


By PATRICK CASEY
Senior Mikie Jones scored
i7 points as the Paxton Bob-
cats swept the South Walton
Seahawks for the fourth time
in four years 52-39.
Paxton used a 20-12 sec-
ond quarter run to pull away
from the home team as eight
different Bobcats scored in
the opening half of play to
give the visitors a 32-23 half-
time lead.
Paxton (8-6) played the
game without leading three-
point shooter Drew
Geoghagan, as the senior is
out indefinitely due to a bro-
ken nose suffered in the Ruby
J. Gainer contest before
Christmas. Jones canned four
three-point baskets in
Geoghagan's absence to com-
bine with eight other Bobcat
scorers for their second win
over the Seahawks this year.

South Walton got within
four points in the early sec-
ond half (32-28) only to see
Paxton's defense shut down
the comeback by limiting the
Seahawks to five baskets
from the floor in the entire


second half. Twelve second
half turnovers also limited
opportunities for the
Seahawks to get back into the
game.
Preston Beard led the way
for South Walton with 12
points as the Seahawks fell to
4-10 with the loss.
Game Notes: Paxton is 8-0
against South Walton in four
years of boys basketball com-
petition. South Walton has
never beaten another Walton
County varsity team in boys
basketball in a regular sea-
son game. Jeff Bradley is 146-
89 in his ninth season as head
coach. Mark Cozzie is 20-76
in his fourth season as head
coach for South Walton.
South Walton won the junior
varsity contest 31-27. Paxton
defeated South Walton in
Paxton 58-48 on November
28. The Seahawks hurt them-
selves at the free throw line
by making only 9-of-25 at-
tempts. South Walton's boys
are at the bottom of the Area
Five's free throw shooting
stats, shooting only 48 per-
.cent (127-267) from the char-
ity stripe as a team.

Walton junior LaRel Jack-
son scored 25 points and the
Braves forced 20 turnovers as
the Braves picked up a 63-37
victory over Laurel Hill(11-4)
at the Walton High School
gymnasium.
The game started with nei-
ther team able to hit a shot
as the Braves held a 7-6 lead
after one period of play. Wal-
ton took charge in the second
quarter as the Braves hit 8-
of-16 shots from the floor to
take a 26-14 lead to the locker
room.
LaRel Jackson scored 23 of


his 25 points over the last
three quarters as the Braves
point guard slashed to the
hoop for basket after basket,
to help Walton build a. 47-24
lead after three periods of the
contest.
Walton finished the last
three quarters on a shooting
tear as the Braves canned 24-
of-41 shots from the floor to
improve their record to 10-4.
James Towery added 10
points for Walton as the
Braves limited Laurel Hill to
13-of-52 shooting from the
floor with solid defensive play
that forced several turnovers
from a normally sure-handed


Hoboes squad.
. "We got back to playing de-
fense tonight and I didn't re-
alize we shot the l Ill aigfini't
them as well as we did. We're-
still struggling in the paint,
but Craig Brooks did a good
job to grab rebounds and
Larel took advantage of some
openings in the Jane to get
some quick baskets," Walton
coach Jerry Hester com-
mented after the game.
Walton will travel to Lau-
rel Hill for the rematch on
January 26.
Game Notes: Walton broke
a two-game losing streak to
Laurel Hill as the Hoboes


pounded Walton in' both con-
tests last season. Walton is
now 4-7 against Laurel Hill
ih the series, dating back to
.1-92-93. Hester revived the
home-and-home series in his
second year as head coach in
2003-04, and the non-district
rivalry has drawn some of
Walton's larger crowds for the
contests. Shadler Roehm had
several key steals that helped
Walton start fast-break op-
portunities. Hester is now 79-
41 in his fifth season as
Walton's boys basketball
coach. Walton won the junior
varsity contest in overtime
41-39.


FHSAA updates



football districts


By PATRICK CASEY
The Florida High School
Athletic Association has up-
dated the high school football
classifications for the next
two years after a December
recount of high school popu-
lations throughout the state
of Florida.
Walton's district will re-
main unchanged for the next
two seasons as the Braves
find Marianna and Pensacola
Catholic as their only two dis-
trict foes for another two sea-
sons.
Freeport saw their district
grow by one more.school as
Franklin County High
School, which is currently
being built in Eastpoint, will
join District 1, Class A.
Franklin County High School
will be composed of
Apalachipola and Carrabelle
high school students, as those
two schools are being consoli-
dated into one by the
Franklin County School
Board. The addition of an
eighth team to Freeport's dis-
trict means seven district
games for each school, and a
format that will require some
schools,to play four district
road games while hosting
only three district games ev-
ery other year.


South Walton saw the
most change to its district.
The Seahawks will have two
additional opponents to play
for a district crown this next
season as Holmes County and
Vernon were shifted from Dis-
trict 2 to District 1 in Class
2B. The Bluedevils and
Yellowjackets will join
Northview and Baker to give
South Walton four district
games a year for the next two
seasons.
"I like it," said South Wal-
ton Head Coach David
Barron. "Now one loss won't
likely put you out of the dis-
trict race. It will make sched-
uling easier and give us four
really important district
games during the regular
season."
Football coaches will begin
the scheduling process offi-
cially in late January, though
many coaches throughout the
area are already working on
unofficial deals to fill out a
ten game slate.
School will start later in
August this year, due to the
Florida Legislature moving
the starting date closer to
Labor Day, meaning the pre-
season Kickoff Classic games
could be held before schools
open.

FHSAA to hold three-point shooting contest


By PATRICK CASEY
The "First-Ever FHSAA 3-
Point Showdown" will be con-
ducted simultaneously with
the FHSAA girls and boys
basketball championships.
Competition will begin dur-
ing district tournament play,
continue in the regional tour-
nament championship
rounds and conclude at the
2007 FHSAA Girls Basket-
ball Finals and 2007 FHSAA
Boys Basketball Finals in
Lakeland.
"This is the FHSAA's first
venture into individual skills
competitions and we're
pleased to offer this opportu-
nity to girls and boys basket-
ball players," said FHSAA
Commissioner John A.
Stewart. "We think it will add
a new level of excitement to
our state basketball playoffs."
Here's how the competition
will work:
Each school participating
in a district tournament will
be able to enter two shooters
into the competition that pre-
cedes its first game in the dis-
trict tournament. All shooters
must be players on their re-
spective teams and must be
dressed in their team uni-
forms.
The shooters from the two
teams playing in a district
tournament game will shoot
immediately before the
warmup period preceding
their game. Each shooter will
have 45 seconds to shoot
three racks of five balls each
(15 balls total). The shooting
positions will be at each side
of the lane at the free-throw
line extended and at the top
of the key. Each made basket
will count as 1 point. The two
shooters who score the most
points will advance to the
next round of competition,
which will take place before
the game in the next round
of the bracket into which
their teams will advance if
they win. Shooters will ad-
vance independently of their
teams. So, a shooter who
qualifies to advance to the
next round will do so even if
his or her team does not. A
tiebreaker round, if needed,
will last 30 seconds and will
consist of two racks of five
balls each located in both cor-
ners of the court.
The four district winners
in each region will advance to
the regional round of compe-
tition, which will be held at
the site of the regional tour-
nament championship game.
The four regional winners
in each classification will ad-


vance to the state competition
on Championship Friday and
Saturday in Lakeland. Com-
petition to determine the win-
ners in the six classifications


will take place immediately
preceding the Class 3A, 5A
and 2A championship games.
The state winners in the six
classifications then will com-


pete against each other just
before the Class 6A champi-
onship game to determine the
state'sfoverall top 3-point
shooter.

ALLYSON HUFFMAN-
8TH -GRADE


Like the NCAA, NFL

sees change in coaches


By CHUCK HINSON
In just two years after lead-
ing the Atlanta Falcons to the
NFC championship game,
head coach Jim Mora, Jr.
was let go last week after two
disappointing seasons at the
helm. The decision to let the
coach go came from owner
Arthur Blank.
Since 2005, the Falcons
lost six of their final games
to miss the play-offs. They
finished 7-9 this season by
losing seven straight of their
last nine match-ups.
Their slim hopes of going
to the play-offs were ended on
-Dec. 30 when the Giants beat
Washington. The Falcons
ended their season against
Philadelphia with a 24-17
loss.
The 45-year-old Mora, son
of NFL coaching icon Jim
Mora, went 26-22 in his
three seasons with Atlanta.
In his rookie season as head
coach, Mora took his Falcons
to the play-offs.
A year later, he and the


Falcons suffered an 8-8 sea-
son and this year, his job was
on the line from the start of
the season.
The NFL had other
changes in store this past
week as the Arizona Cardi-
nals gave walking papers to
head coach Dennis Green. He
was also in his third season
as head coach.
He was let go one day after
the Cardinals had suffered
one of their worst seasons in
history. They fell to a season
record of 5-11 with a 27-20
loss at San Diego on New
Year's Day.
Green finished his coach-
ing career with the Cardinals
with a 16-32 record. His
teams went 6-10, 5-11 and 5-
11 during his three-year run.
Green is the seventh coach
for the Cardinals since they
moved from St. Louis to Ari-
zona in 1988.
The organization has
agreed to buy out Green's re-
maining contract at $2.5 mil-
lion.


POPULAR NON-CREDIT computer courses offered through OWC's PRIME TIME pro-
gram range from introductory courses for those with no or very limited computer experi-
ence to courses such as Web Design, Excel, and Microsoft Word and a PRIME TIME com-

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, JANUARY 11, 2007:


Underwater Tactics with Ken Cook:

"Start the New Year with new line"


Fishing experiences can
range from both the pleasure
that comes from catching a
fish to the pain and frustra-
tion that comes when "the big
one" gets away. For every suc-
cessful fish story you might
hear at the boat ramp, there
are probably many more tales
anglers left in disbelief as the
fish of their dreams breaks
their line -- never to be seen
again.
For those of you fishing for
fun, the heartbreak is usually
temporary. For those of us
who fish for a living, that
same heartbreak can also
break the bank. One missed
fish can be the difference be-
tween cashing a paycheck
and going broke. That's why
professionals. myself in-
cluded make every effort to
minimize the chances of this
happening to us. First and
foremost, we start with our


fishing line.
Your fishing line is the only
connection between you and
the fish. Fishing line, as it
ages, comes into contact with
many things that all work to
break it down and make it
weaker. The repeated stress
and strain of fighting big fish,
rubbing on rocks and timber,
sunlight, water, even a fish's
teeth can cause your line to
become weak and more likely
to break the next time you're
fighting that big fish.
Maybe your fishing gear
spent the winter confined to
a lonely corner of the garage
or locked away in the rod
locker of your boat. If you are
lucky, maybe you fish all.
through the winter while oth-
ers stay hunkered down in
front of the fire trying to keep
warm. Either way, your fish-
ing line has now been exposed
to repeated temperature


changes from the sub-freez-
ing cold on winter's frostiest
days to the sometimes 60-
and 70-degree highs that can
still be had during winter in
some parts of the country.
Those extreme temperature
changes weaken your line. So
before you begin your new
year on the water in search
of big bass or any other spe-
cies offish, take advantage of
any off-season tackle sales
that might be going on 'or cash
in those gift cards you got for
the holidays and stock up on.
fresh fishing line.
The best approach is a pro-
active approach. That's why
I respool my reels after each
day of competition. It takes
some time and costs some
money, but it's better to spend
a few dollars on fishing line
than those several thousand
because I lost a fish. For those
of you who aren't fishing ev-


ery day, the best thing to do
is carefully examine your line
before each trip, look for cuts
and abrasions. Whenever
your reels have been sitting
in the garage for a long time
or if they spend a lot of time
in the sun, take the time to
respool them. If you use col-
ored line, check the colorfast-
ness. If the color has faded,
chances are that it is time to
respool.
I prefer to keep bulk spools
for respooling because it
helps me save money and
time. I keep them closed in a
cabinet in a cool, dry place
with the date of purchase
written on each spool. It is
important to store the line
away from sunlight and mois-
ture.
Today's technology means
has brought us superior fluo-
rocarbon line like Berkley
Vanish and superlines like


Berkley Fireline, tools that
give anglers the strong, man-
ageable line they need to land
big fish. But even the best
line can wear down after pro-
longed use. Whether you fish
for fun or for a paycheck, it's
better to be safe than sorry.


Respool often and avoid the
heartbreak of a lost fish.

pion and a 14-time Classic
