By LEIGH STRICKLAND
DeFuniak Springs voters
may soon have the chance to
change the structure of city
politics. At the February 12
meeting of the DeFuniak
Springs City Council, first
reading was given to two or-
dinances that if approved
will add two referendums to
the next election's ballot.
The first will ask voters,
"Should the terms of the
mayor and city council be in-
creased from two years to
four years, with elections to
be held every two years?" The
second question will read,
"Should the position of city
clerk be changed from one of
an elected position to one of,
an appointed position filled
by majority vote of the city
of DeFuniak Springs?"
A public hearing and a
vote for adoption of these or-
dinances will be held at a fu-
ture meeting.
Consideration of the fran-
chise agreement with Bright
House continues. The com-
pany provides cable,
Internet, and telephone ser-
vice in the city and to some
outlying areas, but several
issues with the service are of
concern to city residents.
Councilman James Huffman
said, "The League of Cities
recommends contacting an
attorney before entering into
an agreement." One reason
he cited is the changing lan-
guage of technology. City At-
torney Clayton Adkinson
agreed, saying, "It may be to
our advantage to do that be-
cause it's a new. technology
and the rules have changed."
The city authorized
Adkinson to contact an-
other attorney who special-
izes in this type of agree-
merit before proceeding.
After several months con-
sideration, the city has ap-
proved the voluntary annex-
ation of the Gulf Communi-
cations property located on
the west side of U.S. 331S:
This property is part of the
Quail Ridge subdivision and
is one of several properties
therein to request annex-
ation.
The city recently received
an application for the annex-
ation of lots 37 and 38 of the
Quail Ridge subdivision, as
well. Adkinson was in-
structed to proceed with the
annexation process and the


issue will be considered
again at a futture meeting.
Another proposed afford-
able housing development
was presented to city coun-
cilmen for their consider-
ation. Sam Johnston of
Cahaba Valley Development
Corporation, in Birmingham.
presented plans for a devel-
opment that, if approved,
would be located at Orange
Avenue and 16th Street. The
80 unit, $11 million project
would be financed through
tax credits and would require
a contribution of $20,000
from the city or county.
The results of the city's
impact fee study. done by.
Government Services Group
in Tallahassee, were also pre-
sented to the council.They.
recommended that the city
go forward with implement-
ing the impact fees, which
would be about $750 for each
new home built in the city.
This cost is to take the' bur-
den off existing homeowners
for building infrastructure to
support new residents.
The city voted to accept an
offer from Walton County to
provide a grant of $600.000
to go toward the upgrade of
the city's wastewater treat-
ment plant in connection,
with providing service to the
new Walton County Justice
Facility on Hwy. 83 N. The
city will put about half of
that amount toward impact
fees owed for the project.
The'local chapter .f the
Kiwanis Club is holding its
annual "Take a Kid Fishing
Day" in April. The council
granted permission for that
group to use the pier on Lake
DeFuniak near the
Chautauqua Building.
DeFuniak Springs Mu-
nicipal Airport, FBO Opera-
tor Jonathan Dunn updated
the council on new develop-
ments at the airport. Enter-
prise .Rental Cars, hesaid,
will begin providing ser ice
at the airport on June 1. A
new credit card reader will
enable more customers to
purchase fuel from the air-
port and as of June 1 the air-
port will offer full service in-
stead of self-serve fuel. Addi-
tionally, a sign supplied by
Texaco oil company will be
erected at the airport. The
sign will identify the airport
and its services, including
hangars, maintenance,; aid
flight training.

The Walton County School
Board approved Dooley Mack
Construction as 1e contrac-
tor to build the Olw Walton
High School adjacent to the
current one over the next two
years at the February 6
school board meeting as part
of the night's agenda.
The board discussed a
drainage issue on the south-
east corner of the Freeport
High School campus near
where the current girls soft-
ball field is located. The prob-
lem occurring is discharge


from a retention pond into, a
lot in the industrial park lo-
cated adjacent to the school
property. Wayne Miller,. Su-
pervisor of Operations and
Administration, told, board
members that the discharge
is going into a natural de-
pression and suggested a
flume to help with the prob-
lem where over four acres .of
water in the 100-year flood
plan has to be collected.

By JEFFREY POWELL
The Muscogee Nation of

JANEA BURGESS SHOWN excepting her commerative
desk plaque as employee of the year 2006.


Janea Burgess

selected as the 2006

WC Tax Collector'

employee of the year


Janea Burgess, who has
collected taxes for Walton
County for 18 years, was
honored Monday, Jan. 22, by
her fellow employees as the
2006 Walton County Tax
Collector's Office Employee
of the Year.
Burgess is the current
Property Tax Department
supervisor.
Tax Collector Rhonda
Skipper noted that the em-
ployee of the year is nomi-
nated by co-workers and se-
lected based on the majority
of nominations received.
During the award presen-
tation, Skipper stated, "Our
organization is successful
because of the efforts that
everyone contributes, and
this award is special because
it is selected by the employ-
ees."
The nominations that were
submitted noted, "Mrs. Bur-


gess has a wealth of knowl-
edge that she has gained in
her years of service, and she
has the ability to communi-
cate and instruct customers
and her fellow employees if
questions or problems arise
concerning property taxes."
The day of recognition in-
cluded a luncheon in Janea's
honor and she was presented
with a commemorative desk
plaque. Burgess accepted
the plaque and spoke briefly,
thanking her co-workers and
the Tax Collector.
Upon receiving the award,
Burgess remarked, "That she
has to give credit to her co-
workers and the administra-
tion, 'without them we
wouldn't be as successful as
we are today," she said. "I
was surprised and speech-
less. It's a great honor to be
nominated and selected, it
really means a lot.


Denson. "We appreciate all
that our senators have done
for us and just hope the bill
will make it through Con-
gress."
The Muscogee Nation
originally petitioned for rec-
ognition with the Bureau of
Indian Affairs in 1978. Since
then many of the tribal el-
ders have passed away, mak-
'ing the preservation of the
Muscogee nation even more
difficult than before:

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


Assistant Editors Comment:

Another blonde train wreck


By BRUCE COLLIER
The Herald/Breeze re-
ceives an average of 12 15
obituaries a week. Usually
the funeral homes send
them, sometimes a family
member. If you read obituar-
ies, you know they tend to
run along the same lines.
There's the date of death, fol-
lowed by date of birth, par-
ents' and surviving relatives'
names, etc.
The typical obiturary also
includes something personal
about the departed. It can be
a war record, job description,
favorite hobbies, pets, and
the deceased's nickname
among friends.
That's an ordinary obitu-
ary. The deaths of celebrities
are marked in another way
entirely. Take for example
the recent demise of Anna
Nicole Smith.
In case you've been on the
dark side of the moon, Smith
died Feb. 9 at the ripe old age
of 39. She was staying at a
hotel and casino on a Semi-
nole reservation in Holly-
wood, FL, and reportedly had
been running a high fever.
A tape from tribal police to
local paramedics was re-
leased Feb. 13. The tape in-
dicated that Smith was not
breathing when paramedics
arrived. She died an hour
later at a hospital. A writer
for Associated Press suc-
cinctly summed her up as "a
former Playboy playmate,
model and reality TV charac-
ter."
Smith now joins the ranks
of Monroe, Mansfield, Joplin,
Mb0rrison, Hendrix, and
Belushi. She lived fast, died
young, and... you know the
rest of it.
At press time, cause of
death was not determined.
An autopsy on Feb. 10 report-
edly found no pills in her
stomach, and though pre-
scription drugs were found in
the room, apparently no ille-
gal narcotics have been re-
trieved.
What, then, killed Anna
Nicole Smith?
Was it the death of her 20-
year-old son last fall? Her le-
gal battles over the estate of
her late husband, the An-
cient Texas Billionaire? The
impending TrimSpa lawsuit?
Maybe. On the other hand,
a post-mortem of another
kind reveals other possibili-


ties. Internet coverage indi-
cates that e-mail postings
and homemade "tributes"
are the preferred method of
marking her passing. No
flowers piling up in front of
the Hard Rock Hotel and Ca-
sino for the Queen of the
Internet Photo Spread.
Several men have stepped
forward to claim fatherhood
of Smith's infant child, a cu-
rious legal spin on the usual
celebrity paternity action.
Could it be they heard about
Smith's will, leaving every-
thing to the baby?
No, that can't possibly be
it. After all, one of them is not
only a European prince, but
the husband of that model of
decorum, Zsa Zsa Gabor.
TrimSpa CEO Alex Goen
observed on a TV interview
that Smith was "clearly in-
credibly misunderstood."
No, Alex, she wasn't. She
may not have understood
herself, but she was very
clearly understood by others.
She was understood as an
exceptionally lucrative me-
dia commodity, an opportu-
nity to exploit sex, glamour,
folly and ridicule, all rolled
into one woman.
When her weight was
down, we were invited to ad-
mire her Monrovian -or was
it Mansfeldian? figure.
When it was up, we were told
to point and laugh. In care-
fully managed doses, she
could be gracious and charm-
ing. Given her own show, she
was blowsy and incoherent.
She was the answer to a,
tabloidist 5 prayer, a perfect,
passive object of obsessive at-
tention, capable of being
prodded and hyped every
which way to get ratings and
sell papers. Lest you blame
the media entirely for her
death, remember these
truths:
Tobacco companies would
close tomorrow if people
stopped smoking.
There would be no pornog-
raphy if no one bought it.
Every drug dealer needs
an addict.
Fame would still have
value if it were still hard to
achieve.
Meantime, pop star
Robbie Williams has checked
into rehab.
Next victim, please. No
need to crowd....

Editor,
Much has been written about the alarming increase in
obesity in America. Many theories abound on the root cause
of this obesity, the chemicals and hormones put into our
food by the producers, too much television and computer
games, not enough physical activities, and the "Big is Beau-
tiful" promoters. Little has been written about the personal
responsibility side of the equation.
I fully agree that the chemicals and hormones in our
food contribute to the fattening of America as well as too
much time spent in front of the television or computer, the
lack of physical activity, and the drive by business people
to market to fat people. Americans, you, me, and everyone
else that are beginning to look like a beached whale, need
to look at ourselves in a mirror and say, "the responsibility
for keeping my weight in check is that person I'm looking
at in the mirror."
I recently accompanied my wife to dur local Wal-Mart
for some shopping. As usual, I finished my shopping long
before my wife finished hers. One of my favorite activities
on these occasions is people watching. As I waited for my
wife I observed the people entering and leaving the store. I
was struck by the large 'numbers of people that were, not
just overweight, but so fat they waddled as they walked.
The sad part about all these "corn fed people" were the
number of young girls in their teens and twenties that were
so grossly overweight. I was also surprised by the number
of couples I saw where the wife or girlfriend was grossly
overweight but the husband or boyfriend was normal or
even skinny. That's not to say that I did not see a large
number of guys with excess blubber.
I saw a lot of grossly overweight mothers trailed by
grossly overweight children. What irresponsibility! It's one
thing to let yourself become obese but to allow your chil-
dren to become the same is completely irresponsible. Wake
up mothers and fathers, your children's health is at risk!
Whoever said, "big is beautiful", is just plain blind. There's
nothing remotely attractive about a person that is so fat
they waddle when they walk and look like a beached whale.
The health issues caused by obesity is also considerable.
We can lay blame at a lot of doors for the fattening of
America but the ultimate responsibility belongs to we the
people. The next time you look in a mirror ask yourself
this question, "do I really want to look like that."

Editor:
Chautauqua has come and gone for the 12th time. It is
,extremely rewarding, personally, to watch the baby that I ner-
vously and painfully birthed in 1996 begin to develop and show
its ultimate promise. Though we are still only a four-day pro-
gram, I continue to forsee and plan for the eventual return of
the original nine-week season.
While I am no longer in the forefront, I continue to work
behind the scenes on various levels. I am sure the community
joins me in congratulating Ann Robinson for all her efforts
and a job well done.
The Assembly takes a great deal of work by a host of people
and we are fortunate to have such a dedicated President as
well as an army of wonderful volunteers and an outstanding
administrative assistant, Susan Bakalo. She shouldered a huge
work-load and performed it tirelessly. On behalf of the board
of directors, I would like to thank each of you for your contin-
ued enthusiastic support and generous donation of both time
and talent in helping produce the 12th Annual Chautauqua
Assembly.
Our board is actively engaged in Chautauqua and we are
anxious to meet and get ready for next year. Many of you met
our board members at various programs, as they all partici-
pated and made presentations.
I would like to especially thank Dewey Ray for all that he
and his wife, Jill, did to help create so many of the underpin-
nings that stabilize Chautauqua. Dewey is originally from De-
Funiak, but has not lived here in several decades. Yet his pride
and dedication to the community of his youth continues un-
abated. We consider ourselves fortunate to have his many tal-
ents and huge amounts of time directed toward our hometown
project. Thank you again for the privilege of working for and
with you.

Diane Pickett
Founder, The Chautauqua Assembly

Florida Supreme Court


hears Guardado appeal


By BRUCE COLLIER
The Florida Supreme
Court heard oral argument
on February 12 in the capi-
tal appeal of Jesse Guardado.
Guardado is under sentence
of death for the 2004 murder
and robbery of Jackie
Malone.
Guardado had initially
waived all right to counsel,
and insisted on pleading
guilty to both offenses. Cir-
cuit Judge Kelvin C. Wells
appointed defense counsel to
represent Guardado at the
penalty phase of the proceed-
ings, in which a jury heard
evidence solely on the issue
of whether Guardado should
be sentenced to death or to
life imprisonment. The jury
unanimously voted for death.
The appeal, filed as a brief
in May of 2006, makes four


arguments for reversal and
imposition of a life sentence.
The first argues that the
court failed to make a
"proper inquiry" following
Guardado's complaint that
he had been represented in-
competently and wanted to
dismiss his appointed law-
yer. The second and third
arguments contend that the.
state did not meet its burden
of proving the necessary ag-
gravating circumstances jus-
tifying the death sentence.
The fourth argument chal-
lenges the constitutionality
of the Florida capital proce-
dures.
The state's response relies
on the circumstances of the
murder, reiterating that
Guardado's stabbing and
beating his victim, as well as
the evidence of planning of
the crime, justified a finding


of the aggravating circum-
stances of "heinous and atro-
cious manner" and "cold and
calculated manner" of
Guardado's actions.
The state also pointed out
that Guardado repeatedly
asked the judge to dismiss
his lawyers, asserting that
he had something to tell the
judge that could only be spo-
ken in private, a request that
the judge told Guardado he
could not grant.
In A reply brief,
Guardado's appellate counsel
argued that Guardado's as-
sertion that he had incompe-
tent counsel and wished to
dismiss them amounted to a
request for self-representa-
tion, which the court did not
allow.
The Supreme Court had
not ruled on the appeal at
press time.

The cost of peanuts, soy-
beans and corn may soon be
going up. Farmers have a
.new, huge customer compet-
ing to buy their products the
bio-diesel fuel manufactur-
ing industry. A new plant
scheduled to be built in 2008
in Opp, Alabama, may drive
peanut, soybean and corn
prices up at the grocery store.
Farmers like Donnie
Richardson say the competi-
tive consumer market for his
peanuts may drive prices up,
meaning he'll, make more
money for a change.


"It's going to give us more
markets to sell to," he says.
"Plus, it's a win-win situa-
tion. It puts farmers to work,
it puts individuals that buy
the product to work (at the
biodiesel plant), and it cuts
down on pollution." Experts
say that biodiesel fuel burns
cleaner than traditional fos-
sil fuels.
Richardson says that he
suspects the fertilizer indus-
try to raise prices, since in-
dustry leaders are aware
that farmers will have more
money to spend on fertilizer,
a product farmers must have
to grow their products. The
increase in fertilizer will fur-


their drive peanut and other
products even higher.

Sacred Heart to present seminar on hearing loss and hearing aids


More than one third of
Americans over age 60 suf-
fer from hearing loss, mak-
ing it one of the most com-
mon health conditions affect-
ing older adults today. Dr.
Sean McWilliams, an oto-
laryngologist (ear, nose and
throat specialist) with Sa-
dred Heart Medical Group,
rill present a free seminar
on hearing loss and the lat-
est advancements in hearing
aids on Wednesday, Feb. 21.
:The seminar will take
place at 10 a.m. in the Re-


: Relay for Life of DeFuniak
Springs is inviting all cancer
survivors and their
caregivers to celebrate their
successes at a reception
given in their honor.
The survivors' reception
will be held Monday, Febru-
ary 19, at 6 p.m. in the social
hall of the First United
Methodist Church at 88


source Center Suite 3 Confer-
ence Room at Sacred Heart
Hospital on the Emerald
Coast. Highlights include
the different types of hearing
loss, ringing in the ear and
advances in hearing amplifi-
cation. Although the loss of
hearing is irreversible and
can occur at any age, there
are certain steps that can
increase the ability to hear
certain sounds and thus in-
crease quality of life.
Dr. McWilliams received
his bachelors degree from

UWF librarian discusses roots


American Chautauqua

Gladly Welcoming New Patients


By JEFFREY POWELL
University of West Florida
special collections librarian
Dean Debolt knows the his-
tory of the American
Chautauqua movement.
Debolt has lectured exten-
sively on the subject and has
traveled to the New York
Chautauqua several times.
The name Chautauqua is
derived from the phonetic
pronunciation of a western
New York lake known to Na-
tive Americans as
Chawtawkwa.
After the Civil War, Dean
contends, people were horri-
fled at what conflict had done
to the country, both physi-
cally and philosophically.
Around 1870 a gentleman
named Lewis Miller of Ohio
began a Methodist camp
near Chautauqua Lake.
Within a few years art and
poetry classes were added to
the religious studies.
This era was a time before
mass media of any kind. Also
a large portion of the citi-
*zenry was illiterate and
could not study the Bible or
read news accounts.
The New York
Chautauqua was held during
the summer months of June,
July and August. People
wondered how to keep this
kind of educational experi-
ence alive throughout the
year.
By 1890 there were at
least 100 Chautauqua events
throughout the country, some
in the form of a traveling
troupe.
Locally the Florida
Chautauqua opened on Feb-
ruary 10, 1885 in Defuniak
Springs. The first five-day
assembly emphasized reli-
gious training and educa-



Sacred Heart
Senior-Services
to host tax tips
seminar
Sacred Heart Senior Ser-
vices and Mainstay Financial
Group, Inc. are hosting a free
financial matters seminar
highlighting tax tips on Mon-
day, Feb. 19 at 10 a.m. Frank
Sauls, Certified Senior Advi-
sor with Mainstay Financial
Group, will provide tips on
curbing taxes and ways to
avoid passing on debt to one's
heirs.
The seminar will take
place in the Suite 3 Resource
Center Conference Room at
Sacred Heart Hospital on the
Emerald Coast.
This seminar is part of a
monthly series of free health
education programs spon-
sored by Sacred Heart
SeniorSpirit! Sacred Heart
SeniorSpirit! is a free pro-
gram for persons 55 and
older. Benefits include free
screenings, seminars, special
in-patient benefits such as a
free daily guest meal ticket
and newspaper delivery, a
monthly calendar of events
detailing all SeniorSpirit!
events, and a quarterly
newsletter containing health
and event information.
To register for this free
seminar or to receive addi-
tional information, please
call (850) 278-3600 or toll-
free 1-877-416-16


tional activities that included
philosophy, art and music.
In 1887 the assembly was
expanded to six weeks and
grew larger as time went on.
1920 saw the 36th and last
of the original Chautauqua
movement gatherings in
Defuniak Springs. The ad-
vent of motion pictures and
radio along with a higher
percentage of literacy among
average citizens had been its
death knell.
On February 10, 1996 F.
Diane Pickett resurrected
the assembly in Defuniak


Springs.
Today's assembly is simi-
lar in many ways to the origi-
nal Chautauqua. Classes are
held concerning art, religion
and current affairs.
On Thursday and Satur-
day Debolt spoke of the
Chautauqua movement past
and present.
"I am honored to be in De-
Funiak during the
Chautauqua gathering,"
Debolt said. "It is nice to-
come to a quiet place to think
and learn, the assembly is
like reliving history."

be allowed to continue their
y employment when a new
sheriff were to be elected or
appointed, except in the case
of "just cause" dismissal as
outlined in sheriffs office
policy and procedure
manual.
Excluded from the bill's
provisions would be those
holding the position of lieu-
tenant and higher, financial
officers, the secretary to the
sheriff, the sheriffs reserve
and auxiliary, and part-time
deputies.
"It protects the basic work
force," Johnson said. He said
he believed the bill would
also be in the best interest of
taxpayers.
"I think it's good for Wal-
ton County and the citizens
of Walton County," Johnson
stated.
Brown suggested that
Johnson discuss his proposed
bill with the Walton County
Board of County Commis-
sioners. Johnson said he
would do so and would seek
a resolution of support from
the commission.
rrts Regarding the SWFD bill
SLt. proposal, Hughes explained
eum that the motivation had been
uisn to address a problem that
ats had come up when a new
use
ustey voter precinct had been cre-
ated in the fire district's ser-
vice area in south Walton
County.
Since the SWFD's incep-
tion, representation had
been based on the three voter
precincts of the district, with
two fire commissioners being
elected from each of the dis-
tricts and on fire commis-
sioner elected "at large," put-
ting the total number of fire
commissioners at seven.
With the creation of a
fourth voter precinct in the
district, a change in the or-
dinance governing the
SWFD was necessary in or-
der to keep the same num-
ber of fire commissioners.
Hughes explained that the
change the SWFD was pro-
posing was to tie representa-
tion to the geographical ar-


eas that the three former pre-
cincts, located at the west,
center and east of the dis-
trict, had included. Under
the plan, one fire commis-
sioner would continue to be
elected at large and two from
each of the three geographic
areas.
The SWFD had deleted a
portion of the proposed bill
which had been advertised
along with the previous lan-
guage. That portion would
have prohibited nepotism be-
tween fire commissioners
and employees of the fire dis-
trict.
SWFD Fire Commissioner
Brian Christenson was con-
cerned that the prohibition
had been considered, since
his wife is employed by the
South Walton Fire District.
"This would affect us per-
sonally," he said.
Christenson said the mat-
ter had never been discussed
at SWFD meetings to his
knowledge.
Allan Ramey, attorney for
the SWFD, commented that
the fire commissioners did

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 15, 2007


Relaxed dining and

flavorful food a trend

toward healthy living
Cooking trends are ever changing. Leisurely dining is
making a comeback. Taking time to appreciate every bite
and enjoy both the food and the social experience is catching
on as a healthy trend. Awakening to savor the flavors of food
has renewed interest in seasoning. Bland is definitely out
and highly seasoned is in. Americans want healthier food,
but they want it to be quick and easy. Taste of Home Cook-
ing School is ready to "Savor Spring" with 10 flavorful fast-
to-fix recipes. Culinary specialist Michelle Roberts will be
coming to Freeport High School on Tuesday February 20 to
prepare a variety of brunch, dinner and dessert dishes. "I'm
very excited about the selection of recipes I'll be sharing with
audiences this season," said Roberts.
Recipes prepared on stage will include a super quick jam
that's packed with beneficial ingredients. "Apple-Berry
Pomegranate Freezer Jam" will brighten any breakfast or
brunch table. Pomegranates are becoming a popular recipe
ingredient because of their many health benefits. The juice
is extremely rich in antioxidants, vitamins A, B and C and
oxalic acids. Pomegranates are a vibrant red berry with hun-
dreds of seeds that are the source of the sweet, tangy, juice.
For those looking to spice up their meals, "Spanish-Style
Paella" combines sausage, chicken and shrimp with rice. The
I spicy flavor comes from a blend of spices that includes the
distinct aroma of saffron. Saffron comes from the yellow-
orange stigmas of the purple crocus plant. Each flower has
3 stigmas, which must be handed-picked. More than 14,000
tiny stigmas are needed to produce just one ounce of saf-
fron. No wonder it is the world's most precious spice. Fortu-
nately, its strong intense flavor means cooks can use it spar-
ingly to achieve appetizing results.
Participants will receive a complimentary Taste of Home
Cooking School Classic Cooking magazine with all 10 fea-
tured recipes plus 150 more Taste of Home tested, tasted
and approved recipes. "If you have never attended
a Taste of Home Cooking School make plans now to join the
festivities," said Marty Dees of the WZEP AM 1460. "Your
name might be drawn for one of the many fantastic door
prizes we have collected." Local businesses have donated a
variety of merchandise. National sponsors who work in as-
sociation with the cooking school have contributed special
gifts, as well."
Taste of Home Cooking School is pleased to have the new
Taste of Home Cookbook available to award to three lucky
winners. "Taste of Home is about great food and real people
who take pride in what they cook and have fun doing it,"
said Roberts. "People treasure Taste of Home recipes, but
they value equally the connection they feel with other cooks
just like themselves who want their families leaving the table
full, happy and raving about their meals now and for gen-
erations to come."
The Taste of Home Cookbook, an everything-you-need du-
rable reference book, will be available for sale for $25 as a
benefit for the Freeport Senior Class.
Advance tickets for the show are available at the WZEP
studios, 449 North 12th Street for $8 each. Tickets will also
be available at the door Tuesday evening. The doors will
open at 4:30p.m. to allow for registration at sponsor booths
and concessions, and the cooking will begin at 6:30pm.

Wesley Memorial United Methodist Church invites the
public .to an exciting night of gospel singing with the Dixie
Echoes performing on Thursday, Feb. 15 at 7 p.m.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 15, 2007

Walton County Art Hannah Etan


League to host floor

cloth workshop


The Walton County Art
League will be hosting a Floor
Cloth Workshop on Saturday,
March 10, 2007 from 8:00 am
until 2:00 pm with Instructor,
Kathy Harrah. Harrah teaches Art
at Maude Saunders Elementary
School.
Floor cloths, a type of rug,
have been in existence since the
1700s. The colonists imported
floor cloths from England to put
on their floors. They were
stamped and painted with oils and
sealed with varnishes, making
them very durable. So durable, in
fact, some are still in existence
today. These floor cloths were an
inexpensive way to get an expen-
sive looking floor, for example,
having them made to look, like
inlayed marble.
The floorcloths will be on
cotton duck canvas and finished
to 2 X 3 feet, the same size as


pictured. Any design is possible
and no prior painting knowledge
is necessary. Floor cloths are
good used in kitchens, dining
rooms and baths and can match
an existing color scheme or pat-
tern. They have the potential to
last a long time..
The Floor Cloth Workshop
will be held in the Mary Vinson
Room of the Walton County Fair
Building on Hwy 83 in DeFuniak
Springs, FL. Pre-registration is
required as space is limited. The
cost for this workshop is $35 and
depending on the design Partici-
pants may need to bring some ad-
ditional materials, such as sten-
cils, matching paint color, etc.
To attend this workshop, con-
tact Jan Hanna at 835-4929 or
e-mail her at
saurus3118@yahoo.com. Space
is limited, so pre-registerno later
than February 22, 2007.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 15, 2007


PAGE 6B


by Dr. Robert M. Jaye
Contained in the wonder-
ful words of Romans 5:5,
there are these which will
bless us today: "The love of
God is shed abroad in our
hearts by the Holy Ghost,
which is given unto us." What
needs to be realized so very
much in this world today is
that God loves us. He is con-
cerned about His people.

Think on the character of
this love. We cannot be sur-
prised that it is the love of
God. Is the nature of His love
to seek out the helplessness
which we experience, and the
needs while we have, and


minister to us that way. He
pours into the lap of poverty
all the wealth of love which
we will need. His love cannot
remain inactive.
His love has the character
to manifest itself. "God com-
mended His love toward us,
in that, which we were yet
sinners, Christ died for us"
(Romans 5:8). Love will not
hide. It overlaps every bar-
rier and shows itself. "Herein
is love, not that we loved God,
but that He loved us, and
sent His Son..."
Think on the sphere of this
love. It is not enough to see
the evidences of God' s love;
His love is not satisfied with


that. It is to be in our hearts.
His love is in the citadel of
the soul, watering the roots
of our affections and purify-
ing the springs of the life. His
love is shed abroad. The love
of God is to fill and flood our
being. It is as the light of the
sun shed abroad on the
earth, scattering darkness
and turning barrenness into
fruitfulness.
The divine operator of this
love is the Holy Spirit. He is


the One who does this great
work for us. He unveils God's
love to us in our Lord Jesus
Christ. He creates that love
within every believer. Behold,
if God so loved us, then, in the
power and after the manner
of that love, we also ought to
love one another (1 John
4:11). His love is shed in our
hearts; we ought to take that
love and show others the
things of Christ which God's
grace has let us know.

Freeport boys on streak entering state playoffs


.By PATRICK CASEY
Freeport, Walton and
Ponce de Leon all qualified
for the boys state playoffs
last week and will take part
.*in the first round of competi-
tion on Thursday, February
15. Freeport claimed the only
district title of the three
,schools, while Walton and
.PDL finished as district run-
ner-ups.
Freeport(18-10) enters the
playoffs as one of the hottest
.teams in the area. The Bull-
,dogs have won 12 straight
,games and have only one loss
in the 2007 half of the sched-
rule. Freeport knocked off Jay
min the District 1, Class 2A
*title game to earn the home
game in the opening round as
well as claim their second
*consecutive district title.


Coincidently, Freeport will
host PDL(16-9) in the open-
ing round on Thursday at 7
p.m. The two squads met
twice in the regular season
with each team winning on
the other's home floor. Free-
port won in PDL on January
30 (69-64) with PDL taking
a victory in Freeport (64-53)
on December 12. This will be
the first playoff meeting be-
tween the two schools in boys'
basketball, exactly a week
after the same thing occurred
between the two schools girls'
teams. PDL won the girls
match-up 58-36.
Freeport won the 1968
Class C boys' basketball
championship when current
head coach David Burke was
a player on that squad. Ac-
cording to the FHSAA, the


Bulldogs have not won a
playoff game since then.
Freeport is 0-3 in the open-
ing round since 1968 and is
qualifying for the playoffs for
only the fifth time in the
school's boys' basketball his-
tory. Freeport won the dis-
trict last year only to lose to
Cottondale at home in the
opening round 67-60.
PDL holds a 5-4 record in
the last nine meetings at
Freeport, but comes in off a
tough loss to Cottondale in
the District 2, Class 2A
championship game. PDL is
18-13 in 31 state basketball
contests 'and reached the re-
gion finals just two seasons
ago. Neither team has an ex-
tremely deep bench and a
tightly officiated game could
cause problems for both. The


winner will face the winner
of the Sneads-West Gadsden
game on Tuesday, February
20 in a second round contest.
Walton(17-11) fell to
Pensacola Catholic in the
District 1, Class 3A title
game, earning the Braves a
third meeting with
Marianna(16-9) this season.
The Bulldogs won both regu-
lar season contests and are
an athletically tall group.
Marianna Head Coach
Travis Blanton has never lost
to Walton at home in his
seven years as the team's
leader, a daunting challenge
for Jerry Hester, who is in his
fifth season as Walton's
coach. The winner of this con-
test will face the winner of
the Taylor County-Jackson-
ville Ribault game on Tues-


day in the second round.
Playoff notes: Walton has
not won in Marianna since
the 1999-2000 season, a 56-
54 squeaker under Gordon
Brock. Jerry Hester is 4-5
versus Marianna in his time,
at Walton. Travis Blanton is
7-6 against the Braves as
Marianna's leader. Brandon
Gibson, the athletic 6-5 jun-
ior forward is a huge match-
up problem for Walton. He
has scored more than 20
points against the Braves in
both regular season games
this season. Walton has been
out-rebounded by teams with
size this season and
Marianna is a good rebound-
ing club. The Bulldogs also
are solid at the free throw
line and have a deep bench.
They can get lazy around the


three-point line, as shown
when Walton hit 12 three-
point shots in DeFuniak on
January 18. Unfortunately,
Walton lost that game as
Shadler Roehm's three-point
shot to tie the game fell off
the rim at the buzzer in a 66-
63 defeat. For Walton to win,
they need a huge game from
the perimeter and even offi-
ciating, something that
hasn't happened for Walton
in Marianna over the last few
years, and was definitely
missing in their game at
Pensacola Catholic on Satur-
day. A 30-point effort from
Larel Jackson wouldn't hurt,
but four or five players in
double figures and single
digit turnovers would go a
long ways towards a Walton
upset.


Walton boys fall to Pensacola Catholic 41-39

Gibson, who signed with
Missouri Valley College,
rushed for 1,222 yards in his
career at Walton with 13
rushing touchdowns and
never seemed to come off the


field his senior season.
Gibson developed into a pun-
ishing tackler as he recorded
three sacks in his career with
11 tackles for loss in the run-
ning game, a fumble recov-
ery and an interception.

Gavin MacNeil scored 14
points and Pensacola Catho-
lic hit 13-of-14 free throws as
they edged Walton in
Pensacola 41-39 for the Dis-
trict 1, Class 3A boys basket-
ball title.
The game was tied with
four minutes remaining, but
Catholic forced some crucial
turnovers and Walton was
unable to hit critical shots in
the closing moments as the
Braves fell to the Crusaders.
Walton(17-10) will be forced
to travel in the opening
round of the Class 3A state
playoffs to take on Marianna
on Thursday, February 15, at
7 p.m.
Walton trailed 32-25 after
three quarters only to rally
to tie the contest, but
Catholic's solid rebounding
kept Walton to several
single-shot possessions over
the final four minutes.
Pensacola Catholic (19-8)
couldn't have played much
better than they did to have
won the game by a mere two
points. Catholic was whistled
for only four fouls during the
contest, to Walton's 13.
Shadler Roehm was the
only player to get into double
figures for the Braves as he
led the way with 10 points in
the low-scoring affair.
Game Notes: Walton was
trying to win their third
straight district champion-
ship. Catholic claimed their
first district title since 1999.


Walton leads the series be-
tween the two teams 18-11
dating back to 1991-92. Wal-
ton has rarely received what
fans and coaches have be-
lieved to be equal refereeing
at Catholic, and once again
it was an 'issue for the
Braves. Catholic's size hurt
Walton as the Criusaders
were able to out-rebound the
Braves and the lax officiat-

ing style definitely allowed
Catholic to be more physical.
Walton got to the free throw
line only four times, making
three. Catholic's game-plan
to neutralize Larel Jackson
worked as the Crusaders
kept him from penetrating
the lane most of the night.
Jackson finished with nine
points after averaging 16
most of the year.

Walton, though, Paxton had

Poor second half dooms Walton's girls


By PATRICK CASEY
A 19-19 halftime tie disap-
peared quickly as Holmes
County forced 18 second half
turnovers and hit 16-of-27
shots from the floor to end
Walton's girls basketball sea-
son with a 57-35 first round
playoff defeat in Class 3A.
Walton(20-8) held even
with the Bluedevils for a half
as Holmes County could not
hit a shot from the floor or
free throw line in the open-
ing half of play on a consis-
tent basis. Lee Paulk kept
Walton in the game with her
three-point shooting as she
led the Braves with 15
points, but no other player


for the Braves scored more
than six in the contest.
Senior Brianna Belcher
led the Bluedevils with 20
points while Emily Rone
added 19 and Teana Butler
16 in the opening round win
for the home team. Belcher
was the star of the show for
Holmes County(19-9) as she
created steal-after-steal in
the second half to give the
Bluedevils several easy bas-
kets.
Walton tried to rally, but
could hot handle the ball well
enough to mount a serious
threat. The Braves commit-


ted 33 turnovers in the game
as they struggled with
Holmes County's pressure
defense. Walton also got beat
up on the boards as Holmes
County got off 19 more shot
attempts than the Braves.
Game Notes: Walton has
lost six of the last seven
meetings to Holmes County.
The game was the first play-
off meeting between the two
schools in girls basketball.
Walton holds a 10-9 record
over Holmes County in the
series dating back to 1992-
93, but hasn't won in Bonifay
since the 1998-99 season.
Point guard play killed:Wal-
ton in losing three of their


last four games of the season.
Walton won 20 games, which
is always a benchmark, but
the Braves may have beaten
only one team with a winning
record at the end of the year,
Freeport(15-13). Walton won
20 games despite not having
a single player end the year
averaging more than nine
points a game, a testament
to Coach Terry McClure's de-
fensive principles. Walton
had only three seniors on the
squad this season and the
junior varsity lost only one
game all year. Look for con-
tinued improvement and a
tougher schedule for the
Braves in 2007-08.

Seminoles

boast

perfect

season

By CHUCK HINSON.
Sunday was just a great
day for the state of Florida
in college baseball. The
Florida State. Seminoles had
their own reason to celebrate
has they went 6-0 this sea-
son and crushed North Caro-
lina Asheville with a score of
15-1.
Now many were trying to
forget about what was taking
place in the Tllahassee Leon
County Civic Center where
Boston College handed the
Seminoles a hometown bas-
ketball loss and where home-
town boy, now Boston College
player, Tyrelle.Blair sunk in
the winning net for the
Eagles with 3.3 seconds left.
On the baseball field, the
garnet and gold shined as
they had four players with 2
RBIs each that included
players Mark Hallberg, Ja-
son Studham, Ruairi 0'
Connor and Buster Posey.
Bo O' Dell got the win for
the Seminoles on the mound.

"Fresh from Florida" to sponsor
the legendary twelve hours of
Sebring Endurance Race


4Am.


The "Fresh from Florida"
message will be promoted to
millions of people around the
globe this spring during the
55th running of the Mobil. 1
Twelve Hours of Sebring,
Florida Agriculture Commis-
sioner Charles H. Bronson
announced.
The Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer
Services has partnered with
Sebring International Race-
way to sponsor America's old-
est sports care endurance
race, which will be held
March 14-17, 2007. The win-
ner of this year's race will cel-
ebrate victory with a glass of
"Fresh from Florida" orange
juice in the winner's circle.
Located in the orange
groves of Highlands County,
the Sebring International
Raceway is legendary for its
international sports car rac-
ing event, patterned after the
famed 24 Hours of Le Mans
in France. Each year thou-
sands of race fans arrive for
the premier race of the
American Le Mans Series to
watch the world's leading
manufacturers battle on the
challenging 3.7-mile road
course.
"Sponsorship of this inter-
nationally acclaimed event is
an excellent way to promote
'Fresh from Florida' agricul-
tural products to consumers
around the world," Bronson
said. "The growing popular-
ity of racing, especially with


younger audiences, makes
this an excellent venue for
reaching an important seg-
ment of the population."
As part of the sponsorship
agreement, the "Fresh from
Florida" logo will be dis-
played year-round on a per-
manent billboard located at
front entrance of Sebring In-
ternational Raceway and two
billboards located on the
track, on 10 barrier signs
around the track during the
race, on 30 banners through-
out the racing venue, in dis-
play space in the midway
area during the event, on a
full-page ad in the souvenir
program, and on the Sebring
International Raceway web
page.

"At the conclusion of the
race, all eyes will be on the
winner's circle where the vic-
tor will celebrate with a glass
of 'Fresh from Florida' orange
juice," Bronson said. "This is
an exciting way to advertise
our state's signature product
on the global stage."
Sebring International
Raceway evolved from a
World War II military base
known as Hendricks Field.
Since 1950, Sebring has been
the center of sports car rac-
ing in North America. Previ-
ous winners at Sebring in-
clude Mario Andretti, Phil
Hill, Dan Gurney, A.J. Foyt,
Stirling Moss, Juan Manuel
Fangio and Bobby Rahal.

FOREIGN TEENS NEED YOUR HELP


NW Services, a non-profit
and Council on Standards for
International Educational
Travel approved program, is
looking for caring families to
host high school students
from Germany, Brazil, Co-
lombia, Japan, France, and
other countries for the up-
coming school year. The stu-
dents are 15-18 years of age


and will begin arriving in
August to spend the coming
semester or school year with
a caring host family while
attending the local high
school.

The students are
prescreened, speak English,
and looking forward to learn-
ing about this country's cul-


ture while teaching about
their country. They have
medical insurance and their
own spending money to cover
such things as clothing,
school supplies, and enter-
tainment. Host families pro-
vide a loving home, meals,
and a place for students to
study and sleep. Host fami-
lies are not paid but may be


able to claim a $50.00 per
month charitable contribu-
tion on their income tax.

It is only through the kind-
ness and generosity of fami-
lies in communities like this
that these young teens will
be able to fulfill their dream
of spending a year as an
American teen.

Nature Walk stirs

By 'LEAH STRATMANN
Approximately 50 citizens "This
and at least one attorney
hired by a neighborhood op- precede
posed' to the Nature Walk
Beach Club planned unit de- develop

tendance at the last meeting

include 2,400 square feet of
retail space, 21 condomini- against
ums and a beach club on 1.2 Walk B&
acres of land located at 3031
E. County Highway 30A.
Brown noted the applicant
had decided to eliminate the retail portion
of the project and dedicate that space for
additional parking slots.
The developer was also seeking two code
deviations. The county code currently calls
for parking spaces to be 9-feet by 20-inches
and the developer is seeking 9-foot by 18-
inch spaces. The other variance concerns
view encroachment. The 30A Scenic Corri-
dor guidelines have set the corridor en-
croachment .at 65 percent and this devel-
opment called for a width ratio of 73.5 per-
cent. The structure currently in place has
encroachments of more than 80 percent.
Brown also noted the structure that will be
torn down is three stories, while the new
structure will be four stories in height.
Rick Peterman, an attorney represent-
ing a group of homeowners who oppose the
project, spoke to the commissioners saying
his clients had hoped to work something out
with. the developer, but a stalemate had

anything in the comprehen-
Nature sive code or the land devel-
ich Club. opment code (LDC) that lets
you waive the parking re-
quirements. I don't see how-
we have enough parking
here. They are showing the beach club as hav-
ing only 11 spaces, one space for every 300
square feet. We would need 50-some parking
spaces. I think the residential spaces are cal-
culated correctly with two spaces per unit.'"
Another issue was the two driveways onto
Headland Avenue. In negotiations with con-
cerned neighbors ahead of the meeting, the
developers agreed to remove one of the drive
ways, but left the other plan ini the building
plans. Several people noted the driveway ex-
ited into a 90-degree blind curve and felt it
created an unneeded risk.
Neighborhood resident Brad Jones lives
two doors from this proposed project and com-
mented, "There are a number of things to be
ironed out and we would like to work it out,
but parking is a big problem. They {the de-
velopers} said they will limit the beach club
to 500 members and they will shuttle people.

By BRUCE COLLIER
The Walton County Build-
ing Department and its en-
forcement officers are com-
plying with the new legisla-
tion, signed by Gov. Crist in
January, that imposes the
International Building Code
and its requirements on all
Florida counties.
Gone is the "Panhandle
exemption" from windstorm
provisions that have been in
force in other Florida coun-
ties. The state now has a
single code.
Gerry Demers, deputy
building official for Walton
County, said that enforce-
ment began immediately
upon the bill's being signed


into law.
The Florida Home Build-
ers Association sent a letter
to the governor on January
22, three days before he
signed the bill, asking for a
delay in implementing a por-
tion of the bill requiring a
"significant design change"
until July 1, 2007, "to incor-
porate these design changes
in a reasonable manner...."
The letter states, "Normal
construction practices in-
clude months of preparation
before a permit application is
submitted to, local govern-
ments.
"There are literally hun-
dreds of residential permit
applications currently in the


pipeline in counties through-
out Florida. The majority of
these permit applications
will likely be denied because
of the provision passed by the
Legislature."
The letter warns that im-
mediate implementation of
the changes could "poten-
tially shut down develop-
ment for a significant period
of time."
Demers said that enforce-
ment is proceeding, observ-
ing that some builders "are
a little upset," because costs
are being added to existing
contracts.
To date, Crist has not re-
sponded to the letter's re-
quest for a delay.

Routine matters discussed


by planning commission


By LEAH STRATMANN
The regular monthly
meeting of the planning com-
mission opened with the wel-
coming of new board member
Bill Maxson, who is replac-
ing Buttch Lawrence.
The meeting drew a large
crowd, most of whom were
there for the discussion cen-
tering on the proposed Na-
ture Walk Beach Club, which
will be covered in a separate
article.
The issue of the adoption
of a lighting ordinance had
been discussed at the last
meeting. A committee has
been working on drafting the
language for the ordinance
for the last year, but mem-
bers of the Shoal Sanctuary
had a number of revisions
they suggested be added to
the ordinance to protect the
night sky. In order that the
committee could give the
suggestions proper consider-
ation, the ordinance was con-
tinued.
Planning department
member Brian Martinez
spoke about the lighting or-
dinance, reporting the com-
mittee met recently and
chose not to approve any rec-
ommendations made by the
Shoal Sanctuary. Amend-
ments to the ordinance in-
cluded exempting single-
family homeowners from se-
curing permits for home
lighting photometric studies.
The ordinance's main focus is
to address residential versus
commercial lighting. The en-
tire ordinance is based on a
complaint-driveni system and
includes guidelines for conve-
nience stores and so forth to
prevent floodlights from be-
ing directed toward the road-

manager Jim Bagby said, "I
dbn't have a problem with
the development, but when
ypu combine the develop-
nient of the condos and add
the beach club, it is too much.
Now is not the time to be
mniodifying or giving vari-
axnces to the scenic corridor
standards, such as the en-
croachment width variance."
"I live in old Seagrove and
there appear to be a lot of de-
viations from the comprehen-
save plan as well as cov-
enants and restrictions.
What does this. do in terms
of precedent for the scenic
30A corridor" asked Bob
Dobes.
Tom Hydell said he was
riot opposed to the project but
noted the 340 feet of beach is
.ptiblic beach and people liv-
ing around the project do not
want their streets to become
parking lots for the 500
beach club members. "The
developer has agreed to
monitor beach use and park-
igg use, but the monitoring
ihethods have not been
spelled out."
David Karp said the beach
ini front of this project is pub-
lic beach; it does not" belong
fo the project. "This property
A as a beach wall and that is-
iue should be resolved before
the project is allowed to go
forward," he noted.
, Leslie Ann Brown of the
rrove by the Sea
homeowners association
Said, "We walk or ride our
bikes to the beach. Our


way.
David Kramer com-
mended the committee for
their hard work and said the
ordinance was well crafted
and well written. He com-
mented it is a good idea to ex-
empt single-family
homeowners.
Pat Blackshear mentioned
again that this ordinance has
nothing whatever to do with
turtle lighting ordinances.
Tom Terrell made a mo-
tion that the recommenda-
tions of the committee be ac-
cepted and the ordinance
passed along to the Board of
County Commissioners
(BCC). All approved the mo-
tion.
Two items woven together
concerned a request for aban-
donment for a portion of
McKenny Road running east
to west between McKenny
Road and Apostle's Way on
the.north side of U.S. 98E
and a previously approved
development known as Rose
Haven Town Homes, located
at the corner of U.S. 98 and
Apostle Way. The developer
entered into an agreement
with the public works de-
partment to open Apostle's
Way to all traffic. Since
McKenny Road is on forestry
land and currently unpaved,
county planners found this
joint venture to be a winner
for the county and the devel-
oper. All board members
unanimously approved the
project.
Other projects approved
included West Shore Phase II
consisting of seven single-
family units on 4.3 acres lo-
cated north of West Shore
Drive on the north side of US
98. The project was reviewed
by planner Mark Martin who


FROM FRONT
neighborhood is opposed to
PUD type issues, the park-
ing waiver, the seawall that
does not have environmental
approval, and the waiver of
scenic corridor guidelines.
We believe this beach club
use is off the map and if the
beach club were removed, we
would support the project."
Donna Kay said. "This will
set a precedent .for any devel-
opment not on the beach to
buy a piece of property to es-
tablish a beach place for that
development. There is not
enough parking for guests,
staff, maids, bartenders, and
reception personnel."
Attorney George Miller, on
behalf of the applicant said
we have met everything
asked for by staff. The beach
is public and my client has
no control over who may be
on the beach. My client does
not own the seawall and it is
not on the applicant's prop-
erty. My client has tried to co-
operate with neighbors and
the county in every respect.
I am sympathetic to the traf-
fic problems on Montgomery
Street because it is small. I
ask that you approve the
project as amended.
Patrick Hodges, also
speaking on behalf of the de-
veloper, said, "We have met
several times with neighbor-
ing property owners in of our
own volition. We have made"
a number of concessions in-
cluding removal of the retail
component in favor of park-
ing, which means we will ex-
ceed the number of spaces re-
quired by code. We have
agreed to allow exiting traf-
fic only to turn north out of
the property. The neighbors
are now asking us to elimi-
nate the driveway altogether
when we have already elimi-
nated the northern driveway
onto Headland. We are not
opposed to design and widen


said the developer planned to
erect a retention pond for
storm water and that the
project met all county codes.
As there were no outstand-
ing issues on this project, all
approved it.
Also approved was the
Alaqua Landing, also known
as Piney Point Estates
wherein 76 single-family
homes will be constructed on
38.4 acres with a land desig-
nation of rural village. This
site is located on the north
side of Piney Point Road west
of West Bay Loop Road..
County planner Tim Brown
found this project to be in
code compliance.
Chat Holly Town Homes,
a development consisting of
34 town homes on 4.5 acres
of neighborhood preserva-
tion/infill land is located on
the southwest corner of the
intersection of Chat Holly
and J.D. Miller Roads. Ac-
cording to county planner
Brown, this project met all
county code requirements.
Speaking on behalf of the
developer, Jack Rhodes
pointed out the project will
include a directional kiosk
and serve as a bicycle path
trailhead that is handi-
capped accessible and which
will ultimately include rest
rooms and an information
board. He indicated the de-
velopers had ,no problems
putting sidewalks in the
area.
Commissioner Terrell
praised the developer for.
adding the kiosk, which will
benefit the entire commu-
nity, not just those living in
the town homes. He made a
motion to approve the
project, which was passed
unanimously.


Headland, which is a county
maintained road." .. ,
Planning director Pat
Blackshear commented that
the county has "looked at the
project as non-conformihg
from the beginning. Citizens
from the surrounding areas
have made valid concerns
and the developer has tried
very hard to make accommo-
dation to those concerns. In
my eyes it is a non-conform-
ing use project with the
wrong RPA on it. Further, the
scenic corridor guidelines are
still in effect. What is the
best re-development project
for this site? We looked at a
lot of issues and did not re-
view this project lightly, but
two things remain un-
changed, the encroachment
issue, and the driveway into
Headland Avenue."
Commissioner Tom Terrell
said, "I'm trying to get a grip
on what the difficulties are.
Staff has done a lot of re-
search on this and decided it
meets what it is supposed to
meet. Continuing to continue
this project just allows an-
other person to pop up with
more objections."
County planners said the
project can be reconfigured to
eliminate all driveways onto
Headland Drivel, but the 65
percent encroachment is de-
finitive and the applicant is
requesting and a view en-
croachment of 73.5. The cur-
rent structure has an en-
croachment value of 85 per-
cent.
Commissioner Randy Gar-
dener made a motion to ap-
prove the project subject to
eliminating access onto
Headland by creation of a
driveway onto 30A and al-
lowing the 73.5 encroach-
ment variance as well as the
parking variance be granted.
The motion was seconded by
Terrell and passed by all.

Water Conservation:

Washing Machines


A washing machine is the second largest water user in
your home, with toilets being first. A traditional w\ash-
ing machine uses approximately 41 gallons per load.
The best way to lower this usage is to buy a high
efficiency washing machine. These machines use 35-
50% less water and 50% less energy per load. This will
save you money on both your water and energy bills.


No matter what kind of washing machine you have,
here are some basic tips that can reduce water use
for washing clothes:


Operate the washer with full loads only even if the
machine has an adjustable load setting. A full load
is the most efficient way to w\ ash clothes.


If your washer has a variable water volume
setting, select the minimum amount required
per load.


SPr-tre-at stains to avoid rewashing.


* Use the shortest wash cycle for lightly soiled loads.


Check your washing machine hoses regularly
for cracks that could result in leaks.

Beach driving area


closed temporarily


By DOTTY NIST
A 600-foot-long section on
Inlet Beach has been put off
limits for driving, at least for
the time being.
The section was one of two
areas in Walton County
where driving was allowed
on the beach.
At their Feb. 13 regular
meeting, the Walton County
Board of County Commis-
sioners voted unanimously to
temporarily close the area to
driving.
The entry point for the


driving area, located south of
South Walton Lakeshore
Drive, will remain open for
accessing the beach for pur-
poses of boat launching, fish-
ing, walking, and the like.
The public access is 66 feet
wide.
The beach driving area is
located to the east of the pub-
lic access point.
The commissioners voted
to close the beach driving
area temporarily due to com-
plaints of beachfront prop-
erty owners. There were re-
ports of disruptive "joy


riding" and other distur-
bances from homeowners
along the 600 feet stretch.
Assistant County Adminis-
trator Shirl Williams ex-
plained that the beachfront
area had eroded, putting ve-
hicles close to the beachfront
homes and adding to the af-
fect on homeowners.T
"It's not-like it used to be,"
Williams said.
Williams noted that beach
driving also has a destructive
affect on the dunes due to the
narrower beach.

Beads from the
floats, moonpies
from the cars and
people all over the
streets. It's Mardi
Gras season and this
weekend wraps up a
month-long list of
parades and events
in Mobile and the
Crescent City.

Once you exit I-10 and hit
the side streets in Mobile or
New Orleans, you are auto-
matically caught up .in the
revelry, the pageantry and
the celebration of a Southern
event that has been rolling
down the streets of these two
cities since 1703. Mardi Gras
has one more blow-out week-
end this weekend and then
wraps it up for another an-
other on Fat Tuesday.
The parades, the krewe
balls, and yes, even the traf-
fic jams, have traffic slowed
between Mobile and New
Orleans. From the Knights of
Mobile and the coronation of
King Felix, to the grandaddy
parades of New Orleans such
as Endymion, Zulu and Rex,
the South has been saturated
with tourists from all over
the world who have come to
the region to see what it is
all about.
Throughout the past
month, parades have -shut
down city thoroughfares,
stopped traffic for miles and
have littered the streets with
a variety of stuffed animals,
moon pies, trinkets, frisbees,
krewe cups and, of course,
beads, beads and more beads.
You can see the celebration
long after the parades have


tU,0-


Art Cli


S Itt LI'


ended with all the beads
hanging from the trees and
the countless beer cans clog-
ging up the sidewalks.
It is a time that has been
set aside to wear goofy hats,
to pile on as many beads
around your neck as possible,
dress up in your finest ball
gowns and tuxedos, and for
thousands, to cut loose and
"sample the vineyards." Just
after the Christmas holidays,
the Gulf Coastdoesn't even
take down their Christmas
trees, they simply remove the
red and silver decorations
and drape the dried up bush
with green, purple and gold
in celebration of Mardi Gras.
For many, it is the last
chance to indulge and revel
before the Catholic holiday of
Lent descends. Once mid-
night on Fat Tuesday strikes,
it is all over for another year
and starts 40 days of reflec-
tion and restraint.

More than 200 parades have
rolled along the streets of
Mobile, Biloxi, Gulfport, New

streets after a parade. But
with the last weekend of the
Mardi Gras celebration,


more than a million are ex-
pected to crowd the streets,
hang from balconies, bom-
bard the hotels and help con-
tribute to hundreds of thou-
sands of tons of garbage, be-
fore next Tuesday rolls
around.
Both Mobile and New Or-
leans are gearing up for an-
other record-breaking atten-
dance and both are just as
ready to see the events of the
past month come to a conclu-
sion.

LEGAL NOTICE

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service,
Department of the Interior, announces
a proposal to designate approximately
31,428 acres (ac) or 12,719 hectares
(ha) in three units across portions of
the state of Florida, Georgia, and
South Carolina, as critical habitat for
the flatwoods salamander. The pro-
posed critical habitat units have been
broken into 45 subunits located in 11
counties in Florida, two counties in
Georgia, and three counties in South.
Carolina.

Critical habitat refers to specific
geographic areas that are essential for
the conservation of a threatened or
endangered species and that may re-
quire special management and pro-
tection. Section 7(a)(2) of the Endan-
gered Species Act requires that fed-
eral agencies ensure that actions they
fund, authorize, or carry out are not
likely to jeopardize the continued ex-
istence of an endangered or threat-
ened species or result in the destruc-
tion or adverse modification of critical
habitat. A critical habitat designation
does not set up a preserve or refuge.
It does not affect individuals, organi-
zations, states, local governments or
other non-federal entities that do not
require federal permits or funding.
Most private land use activities, such
as silviculture or agriculture, would not
involve a federal action that may af-
fect critical habitat and, therefore,
would not likely trigger a consultation
requirement.

The Fish and Wildlife Service is
seeking comments, suggestions and
S any additional information on this pro-
posed rule. A final decision will con-
sider all comments and information re-
ceived in response to the proposal. An
analysis of the economic effects of the


critical habitat designation will be pub-
lished and available for public review
at a later date. Comments from the
public on the proposal should be sub-
mitted to the Field Supervisor, U.S.
Fish and Wildlife Service, 6578 Dog-
wood View Parkway, Suite A, Jackson,
Mississippi 39213, by April 9, 2007.
Requests for a public hearing must be
submitted to the same address by
March 26, 2007 To obtain a copy of
the proposal, contact Field Supervi-
sor, MS Field Office, 6578 Dogwood
View Pkwy., Jackson, MS 39213,601/

OWC Foundation


closes sale of


Kelly Estate

The Okaloosa-Walton College Foundation closed January
26 on the sale of 12 acres of the nearly 13- acre Mattie Kelly
estate parcel in Destin.
"The cultural and environmental endeavors of a fully
funded OWC Mattie Kelly Cultural and Environmental In-
stitute will now move forward," said Dr. Bob Richburg, OWC
president. "We are honored to carry on the legacy and vision
of this longtime friend of the college."
The residentially zoned property was sold for $8.1 million
to Titan Development Enterprises, LLC. The OWC Founda-
tion will continue to own and maintain a more than half-
acre parcel that includes Mattie Kelly's mausoleum, which
is located on the far western edge of the property. The OWC
Foundation moved .to finalize the sale by Jan. 31 in order for
OWC to be eligible for a potential $5.4 million in state match-
ing funds.
The late Kelly of Destin made a bequest of $500,000 and
her residence to the college for the creation of an OWC Mattie
Kelly Cultural and Environmental Institute, an entity which
OWC established in 1997.
The proceeds from the sale will go into the institute's per-
manent endowment fund through the OWC Foundation. The
endowment's earnings will underwrite the cultural and en-
vironmental work highlighted in Mrs. Kelly's gift to the col-
lege, through an implementation plan approved by the
foundation's board of directors. Included will be:
Naming the entire OWC Arts Center complex in honor
of Mrs. Kelly as the "Mattie Kelly Fine and Performing Arts
Center" to memorialize Mrs. Kelly's love of the arts and make
her dream of a fine arts center for the.community a reality;
Support for biological and marine science studies asso-
ciated with the Chocta-whatchee Bay and the Gulf of Mexico,
including the establishment of a Mattie Kelly Distinguished
Endowed Teaching Chair in the Environmental Sciences; an
annual Mattie Kelly Environmental Symposium on the
Choctaw Bay, and support of the OWC Choctawhatchee Ba-
sin Alliance's environmental work to monitor and improve
the quality of the bay;
*A Mattie Kelly Sculpture and Art Acquisition Collection-
to bring more art work and exhibitions to the public through
the OWC galleries with an emphasis on works that express
the coastal heritage of Northwest Florida;
The establishment of a Mattie Kelly Distinguished En-
dowed Teaching Chair in Orchestral Music, and other cul-
tural and environmental endeavors in keeping with the goals
Mrs. Kelly established for the institute.

Movie Review


The Teaming of the Shrill:


"Because I Said So"


By BRUCE COLLIER
The first thing one notices
about Michael Lehmann's
"Because I Said So" is the en-
ergy of the actors. A quartet
of women three daughters
and a mother starts out in
high gear and goes even
higher. By the time the ex-
pository first scenes are fin-
ished, you're ready for some
quiet time. You don't get it
until it's too late.
"Because I Said So" is a
romantic comedy of sorts
about an overprotective, con-
trolling mother trying to
match her only unmarried
daughter to Mr. Right, while
preventing her from hooking
up with Mr. Wrong.
Mom is Daphne, played by
Diane Keaton. Keaton
earned her Oscar in 1977,
playing kooky, lovable Annie
Hall. Thirty years later,
kooky has given way to an-
noyingly neurotic.
The unmarried object of
mom's attentions is Milly,
played by Mandy Moore.


Milly is pretty, smart, and
apparently shares her
mother's knack for choosing
losers. Oblivious to her own
shortcomings in judgment,
Daphne posts an online
single's ad on behalf of Milly,
in the process giving us the
obligatory mom-meets-
Internet-porn scene. It's
pretty funny. The director
must have thought so, too,
because he repeats it later,
proving that once is enough.
After an amusing mon-
tage in which Daphne "inter-
views" prospects in the
lounge of a local restaurant,
she hits on what appears to
be a winner, handsome Ja-
son, played by Tom Everett
Scott. Jason has a great job,
dresses beautifully, with a
charming habit of ordering
for his dates.
The only other prospect is
lounge guitarist Johnny,
played by Gabriel Macht.
Though not one of the
Internet applicants, Johnny
overhears Daphne and Ja-


MATTHEW CATALDIA will perform Rachmanioff's Piano
Concerto #3, Movement 1.

son, and warns her off. "He
has empty eyes," says
Johnny.
Johnny is intrigued by
Daphne's daughter, and con-
trives to meet her. Johnny is
an artist, a music instructor,
and a single dad. For movie
purposes, Johnny might as
well have. a sign reading
"He's the One" hanging
around his neck. Since that.
would have made for a 20-
minute movie, he does not.
The action, or rather, the
volume, ratchets up from
here. Dates are made, Milly
finds herself drawn to Jason
and Johnny, and Johnny's
hyperactive son. I can't de-
cide whether I was supposed
to want to hug or slap the
little tyke, but I leaned to-
ward the latter.
Johnny has a .dad, Joe,
played by Stephen Collins.
Collins is ,an excellent ro-,
mantic and dramatic actor,
but he plays Joe like he wan-
dered in from another movie
and decided to stick around.


Joe and Daphne meet in
the single most inexplicable
scene of the film. Daphne is
staying at Milly's house, hav-
ing screeched herself into lar-
yngitis at a family gathering.
Joe stops by looking for a key
to his son's house. Commu-
nicating via written notes,
Daphne invites Joe to come
in. After a few minutes
watching an old movie, Joe
expresses an irresistible urge
to kiss her,
All this happens in a mat-
ter of moments. I can only
attribute it to Daphne's tem-
porary inability to speak. I
suspect this was in the
screenwriters' minds as well.
Romance follows for
Daphne, and continues to
spiral out of control for Milly.
Revelations, choices, tears,
and reconciliations follow,
but at this point I didn't give
a .flip who ended up with
whom. Some movies end hap-
pily. This one, happily, ends.
Watch something else.
