School board breaks



ground on new WHS


By PATRICK CAS
School board members and
local dignitaries took part in
a groundbreaking ceremony
adjacent to the current Wal-
ton High School on Friday to
kickoff construction of the
new school. The new facility '
will house 750 to 1,000 future
Walton students and will be
built on the current site.
Funding is always a ma-
jor ibsue and the Walton

cluded holding a special elec-
tion to continue the half-mill
ad valorem tax for operating
expenditures of the school
district and a
groundbreaking ceremony

Jim McCall, chief finan-
cial officer for the Walton
County School District, pre-
sented the resolution to the
board for approval with re-
marks on the gains the
county has made in both
school grades and individual
achievement, as well as the
improvement in teacher sala-
ries. "We have the full sup-
port and assistance of the
Walton County Education
Association, both the instruc-


tional nd educational sup-
port personnel group. It is
critical we continue this
funding if we wish to main-
tain anjd improve the excel-
lent quality of education in
our pu lic schools. I urge you
to help us move forward, not
back rd."
The current half-mill tax
has bee n in effect since July
1, 200 as voters approved
the measure in June 2003.
The current proposal calls for
the hal '-mill tax to continue
from July 1, 2007 until June
30, 2011. Board members ap-
proved the measure to be
placed bn the ballot at a yet
to be determined date this

Council gives mayor more authority


DFS Council vote to ask for longer terms


By LEIGH STRICKLAND
Ordinances were adopted
Monday night that will give
city voters the opportunity to
change the terms of the
mayor and city council mem-
bers and to change the posi-
tion of city clerk from an
elected position to an ap-
pointed position.
Council members dis-
cussed the possibility of list-
ing the mayor separately
from council members on the
ballot, but they did not pur-
sue this change.
Councilman James
Huffman said, "I don't think
the mayor is that different
from us."
Councilman Don Harrison
agreed, saying, "We ought to
stick to our guns." If the ref-
erendum passes, he said,
"That would put everybody
in the city on four years."
The second item that may
be changed will affect the po-
sition of city clerk, a position
that is currently unfilled.


"We ought to stick to our guns." If the referendum
passes, he said, "That would put everybody in the
city on four years, "said Councilman Don Harrison.


City Attorney Clayton
Adkins n said of the second
ordina ce, "This will change
the cle:k position, which is
currently an elected position.
It wou d change to an ap-
pointed position."
Citing changes in the du-
ties of a city clerk, Don
Harris mn said, "There's no
real need to have an elected
clerk. I 's more than the fact
that no one has run for it."
A question was raised
about the possibility of an in-
dividual qualifying for the
upcoming election and being
elected city clerk. In that
case, tl e person would serve
their wo year term and


changes would be made after
that.
The ordinances to add
these changes to the city elec-
tion ballot were both unani-
mously passed by the coun-
cil.
Another change to the
structure of the city's govern-
ment was proposed by Coun-
cilman Roy McLeod. He sug-
gests amending an ordinance
numbered 506 that ad-
dresses the office of the city
manager. Proposed changes
in language throughout the
ordinance would require the
mayor to be consulted in ad-
dition to the city council in a
variety of situations.


McLeod said, "The idea
was to include the mayor as
a part of the team." This
came, he said, as a result of
comments made by several
people who come to speak to
the mayor but were instead
directed to the city manager.
The old ordinance,
McLeod said, left the mayor
out of everything except the
power of veto in council votes.
Councilman Huffman
said, "I think what we're do-
ing is putting the mayor in a
more prominent position."
A motion to have first
reading of the amended or-
dinance passed. Second read-
ing, public hearing, and a


vote for adoption will take
place at a future meeting.
In other city council news,
according to Mayor Harold
Carpenter, efforts to place ,
traffic signal at the intersec-
tion of U.S. 331 and Bru'ce
Avenue are on schedule. '
Carpenter said that the
DOT design is 60-percenit
completed. Also, a problem
with a related right of way
has recently been resolved,
allowing the project to move
forward.
The county is working O6n
a turn lane for the project,
Carpenter said, and is con-
sidering resurfacing Bruce
Avenue and portions of Sec-
ond Street and Bay Avenife.
The city requested propos-
als for engineering services
and received replies from two
firms, CDG and Goodwyn,
Mills, and Cawood. Both will
be invited back before the
council to give presentations
and to negotiate with the
city's negotiation committee.

recognized as Century


Pioneer Family Farm


F'lorida Agriculture and
Consumer Services Commis-
si6ner Charles H. Bronson
announced on March 7 that
the Dwight W. Wilson prop-
erty in Polk County, and
Adams Farms, Inc., in Wal-
ton County have qualified as
Century Pioneer Family
Farms. Recognition in this
program means the families
have maintained continuous
ownership of the property for
at least 100 years.
"These families have been
able to retain ownership of
their land through the De-
pression, droughts, freezes
and the urbanization of
Florida," Bronson said. "That
is a great tribute to the many
generations of these fami-
lies."
The Wilson property is cur-
rently growing citrus, but
produced strawberries, wa-
termelon and field peas in
the past. The Adams prop-
erty consists of 1,600 acres,
where peanuts, cotton, and
corn were produced, as well
as a cow and calf operation.
The property is the site
where former Florida Su-
preme Court Justice Alto
Adams was born.
Since the program began
26 years ago, 128 farm fami-
lies have received the Cen-
tury Pioneer Family Farm
designation. The program is
administered by the Florida
Department of Agriculture
and Consumer Services with


assistance from the Florida
Agricultural Museum.

ply for membership into the
program contact Richard

bral palsy (CP), spina bifida,
autism (the entire spectrum)
and Praeder-Willi Syndrome.
Cognitive disability, as de-
fined by David Braddock,
Ph'.D. and director of the
Coleman Institute at the
University of Colorado,
"stems from a substantial
limitation in one's capacity to
think, including conceptual-
izing, planning and sequenc-
ing thoughts and actions, re-
membering, and interpreting
the meaning of social and
emotional cues, and of num-
bers and symbols."
The National Institute of
Neurological Disorders and
Stroke (NINDS) explains
that although cerebral palsy
affects muscle movement, it
is indeed a neurological prob-
lem caused by abnormalities
in the area of the brain that
controls the muscle move-
ment.
The most common perma-
nently disabling birth defect
is spina bifida as outlined by
the Spina Bifida Association.
Those born with spina bifida
may suffer from a variety of
neurological challenges rang-
ing from learning disabilities
to depression.
According to the Univer-


sity of Virginia, cerebral
palsy is easily defined by it
breaking down into the
words cerebral, meaning
anything in the head and
palsy any problem with the
control of muscles or joints in
the body. Therefore, cerebral
palsy makes it impossible to
walk, talk, eat and play in a
normal way. Although it is a
puzzling condition that is
caused by an injury to the
brain before, during or soon
after birth, cerebral palsy
will not get better or worse
and it is life-long. Those born
with CP have impairments
that range from mild to se-
vere. Early intervention and
therapy will improve chances
of living as normal a life as
possible.
Autism, as most people
know it, is one aspect of a
larger group of developmen-
tal disorders known as au-
tism spectrum disorders
(ASDs). NINDS states that
out of 1,000 children, three
to six will be diagnosed with
some form of autism. Accord-
ing to NINDS, autism is
characterized by problems
with social interaction, com-
munication and repetitive
behaviors.


Statistic from the Na-
tional Institute of Health
(NIH) show Praeder-Willi
Syndrome affects 1 in 10,000
to 25,00 people. Although
there are a wide variety of
symptoms associated with
the syndrome, the most rec-
ognizable are obesity as a
result of uncontrollable appe-
tite.
Be sure to listen to Kim
Lonas as she not only ex-
plains more about this par-
ticular area of brain disor-
ders but also provides infor-
mation about what type of
assistance is available to as
the Friendship House contin-
ues their weekly radio and
television segments during
the week of March 19 on
WZEP radio and TV24.
The Friendship House, lo-
cated at 52 Juniper Lake
Road, is now open from 9
a.m. 2 p.m. for those who
wish to stop by and learn
more about brain disorders.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


EDITOR'S COMMENT

Amnesty for criminals
By RON KELLEY

Have you heard the latest from our Florida lawmakers?
Republican Representatives Lincoln and Mario Diaz-Belart,
of Miami, have asked fellow Florida House members to pass
a bill allowing illegal aliens to qualify to attend college? They
would be eligible for student loans, too. After completing
two years of college, they would be granted citizenship four
years later.
The only thing worse than having Republicans propose
such a scheme is having liberal Democrats on the far left
salivating over the chance to pass it.
President Bush's amnesty plan was killed by House mem-
bers last year in favor of an enforcement-only bill, so at least
some Republican congressmen are still listening to actual
American citizens, but with a Democrat-controlled House,
the chances for another version of the same old amnesty
plan are better than ever.
Rep. Tom Tancredo, a Colorado Republican, is one of those
who led the anti-"amnesty" charge. He's considering a run
for president based on that issue. Tancredo even compared
Miami to a Third World country. Rep. Ginny Brown-Waite,
R-Brooksville, said that she doesn't buy the definition of "am-
nesty" offered by Pres. Bush and Sen. Martinez. Bush and
Martinez propose a "fine" on some 12 million illegal immi-
grants for breaking U.S. law, which allows them to claim
that they do not support amnesty. Martinez co-sponsored
an immigration bill giving legal status to illegal immigrants
last year. It passed the Senate, but House Republican lead-
ers buried it.
By contrast, Republican Rep. Adam Putnam, of Florida,
supported giving illegal immigrants legal status and the op-
portunity for citizenship and Democratic Rep. Allen Boyd
sides with Putnam and Bush.
In his recent State of the Union address, Pres. Bush said,
"We need to uphold the great tradition of the melting pot
that welcomes and assimilates new arrivals. We need to re-
solve the status of the illegal immigrants who are already
in our country without animosity and without amnesty." The
White House explanation of Bush's immigration initiative
says illegal immigrants must learn English as a condition
for legal status. To underscore the president's resolve on that
issue, immigrants can read a transcript of the speech on the
White House Web site in Espaihol.
Martinez, who routinely gives interviews in Spanish, ob-
viously supports some people just not Americans.
Am I the only person that thinks this is outrageous? Are
the lunatics in charge of the asylum, or is it just me?
Perhaps I'm being too harsh. Maybethe Bush/ Martinez/
Diaz-Belart plan has merit if they are applied to other prob-4,
lems, too.
For instance, I'm thinking we could apply their formula to
our crime and drug problem. Let's legalize all drugs and
reclassify all the criminals as non-criminals, as long as they
paid a "fine." Don't you see? With no illegal drugs and no
criminals, our jails would cease to be over-crowded and we
could honestly say that crime was at an all-time low. If we're
going to give amnesty to one set of criminals, why not the
others? Just think of how we could brag about how cleverly
we solved our crime problem and won the "War on Drugs."
You know, these guys just may have something after all.


Freedom is a fragile thing and is never
more than one generation away from
extinction. It is not ours by inheritance;
it must be fought for and defended
constantly by each generation, for it
comes only once to a people. Those who
have known freedom, and then lost it,
have never known it again.
Ronald Reagan

Editor:
Is there no one else in Walton County that thinks that
the TDC leadership has lost contact with reality? An indi-
vidual resigns from a $79K per year position, and moves
to South Carolina, and Ms. Titus and Co. are so lost, and
unable to continue with day to day operations without him
that they come up with the unbelievable idea of paying
him $120K per year plus travel expenses to be a CON-
SULTANT!
I realize that Brad Pickel was a very intelligent, moti-
vated, knowledgeable beach management director. But to
think that we need to pay him in excess of $100 per hour
to call in long distance with suggestions and ideas is be-
yond belief. In addition to this we are going to make sure
his travel expenses are paid. (Is this going to be first class
air fare from South Carolina to Walton County every
month? Maybe a chauffeur-driven limo, or possibly a pri-
vate Lear jet contracted for his use?) There wasno attempt
to find another individual qualified for this position. Ms.
Titus had determined that he was the only individual in
the entire USA that could fill the void left by his depar-
ture. If he was that indispensable, why didn't the TDC at-
tempt to negotiate a salary increase prior to his resigna-
tion?
I call upon the BCC to stand up and be counted on this
matter. The TDC and its director have gotten totally out of
control with spending, salaries, and expenses. It is past
time that this run away train is brought to a halt. It ap-
pears that the TDC leadership assumes that tltey have
blank check to do with as they deem necessary. ("It is not
property tax money so it does not affect the residents of
Walton." Sorry, that dog don't hunt for mnhTDC needs to
come up with a new excuse.)
Our BCC need to take control of this situation. They need
to exercise the management necessary to insure that this
type of irresponsible actions is not continued. I encourage
every resident to contact their respective BCC member
and express their outrage at this action by the TDC.

Editor,
I am writing this letter as a concerned mother of three,
and a concerned citizen. I have been watching and follow-
ing Dateline MSNBC and Dateline's show called "To catch
a sexual predator: Flagler Beach." It's a program super-
vised by Perverted Justice and local law enforcement agen-
cies, to catch online ,sexual predators that target young
children in explicit and sexual things;
The thing that bothers me about this episode is, a law
enforcement officer from our very own area, was caught in
the online sting operation. Who would have ever thought,
someone that citizens are to trust, can actually be on the
wrong side of the law? This frightens me. If we can't trust
a law enforcement officer, then who can we trust? It makes
me to start thinking that cops are around our children
everyday. The cops are to protect our children, not to hurt
them Todd Spikes, the accused officer, has pleaded not
guilty as well as the other 21 men busted in the sting.
It blows my mind that the accused predators would plead
not guilty. The evidence is in black and white. People need
to realize that everything we say and do online is recorded.
All ISP addresses are recorded, and he was being investi-
gated even before he left for the trip, by his ISP address.
The government can catch someone by an ISP address and
that will lead them straight to their home. In Walton
County alone, we have numerous sexual predators in our
area. Where me and my three children live, there is one
within one mile of my home, and 27 within five miles. Scary,
isn't it? Just about every corner there is a sexual predator.
Ohio legislature is fixing to pass a law making regis-
tered sexual predators and offenders, have a bright green
fluorescent license plate, identifying them among the pub-
lic. I think that is something that our lawmakers need to
do as well. So, we can keep our children safe and secure.
How many more children do we have to lose before some-
thing is done? DeFuniak Springs has been in the spot light
nationally now, on Dateline, and even Nancy Grace. The
law is the law. If an officer breaks the law just like a civil-
ian, then he should be punished just the same and actu-
ally, even more because he took an oath to uphold that
law. That law is to serve and protect.
I know that officers are imperfect humans like the rest
of us in this world, but, that doesn't excuse them from be-
ing punished because they are officers. Todd Spikes is
charged with three felonies from the sting, lost his job, got
publicly humiliated, fears going to prison and getting killed
by an inmate. Well, Mr. Spikes you should have thought
about that before you decided to break the law. I am clos-
ing this letter hoping I have opened some eyes and made
some brains think. You wanna know the difference be-
tween an inmate and a cop? The inmate got caught. Pro-
tect our children and keep them safe.
Naomi Brownlee,
DeFuniak Springs


Editor,
In response to a number of editorials that have run recently
regarding our business decision to keep Brad Pickel on as a
consultant, I am horrified at the irresponsible journalism that
is being played out in our local papers. Do reporters and edi-
tors fact check anymore?
The articles and editorials compare apples to oranges. Pickel
is not getting a raise, and he won't be a county employee after
March 30. He will be a small business owner and the Walton
County TDC will be his first client.
We conducted an extensive amount of research before mak-
ing this important business decision. What would it cost to hire
and train a new scientist? How far would current projects be
impacted due to Brad's knowledge and relationships? How
much are similar consultants charging for such services? Here's
what we found.
It would cost the county approximately $25,000 to hire and
train a new employee for this position and replacing a highly
skilled person may even cost more. In addition, we learned that
much of what was accomplished with the Western Walton
County beach nourishment project was due to the relationships
Brad had formed with FDEP, US Corps of Army Engineers,
among others over the years. To lose this knowledge, experi-
ence and, most importantly, relationships could set back the
Phase II project for the 30A corridor by several years. Consult-
ants who provide similar services, such as Coastal Technology
Engineers, charge anywhere from $135 per hour and up.
As for what we'll be paying our consultant, anyone in busi-
ness can see this is the deal of the century for the bed tax col-
lectors and the county. We'll be paying less than ,$105 per hour
for roughly 80 hours of work per month. It is up to Brad to
ensure he fulfills the scope of services on time and within bud-
get. Brad will now be responsible for his own insurance and
business costs including overhead, office equipment, supplies
and other business expenses. Brad currently earns $75,920 plus
benefits, which actually equates to approximately $102,000
annually after FICA, medicare, health insurance, retirement,
and workers comp.
Here are all the other benefits that led to our business deci-
sion that the news coverage didn't address. Brad has brought
in more than $13 million in funding through applying for state
and federal grants. The average Walton County grant writer
earns 6.6 percent of the grant awarded, which in this case would
be approximately $858,000. In addition, Brad assisted in se-
curing $1.25 million in federal appropriations for the Walton
County shore protection project with the US Army Corp of En-
gineers.
Brad also holds leadership positions with two national as-
sociations concerning beach preservation and maintenance. He
serves as treasurer, chairman of the awards and education com-
mittee, and a member of the government affairs, membership,
media relations, and executive committees for the American
Shore and Beach Preservation Association (ASBPA). He is an
ambassador with the Coasts, Oceans, Ports and Riverine In-
stitute (COPRI's) Coastal Zone Management Committee. He
also serves as a member of the American Geophysical Union
and a member of the Association of Coastal Engineers. He will
continue to represent us in these associations and use his rela-
tionships and knowledge for the good of Walton County at no
expense to us. Brad has proven he is a loyal and valuable em-
ployee and surpasses his goals and objectives every time.
One of our strategic intents is fiscal responsibility. I assure
you we have done our due diligence and are confident in this
business decision. Brad is a sure thing and the TDC, bed tax
collectors and residents are getting a sweet deal!
Sincerely,
Kriss Titus
Executive Director
South Walton Tourist Development Council





Editor:
My family and I would like to thank the public servants who
came to the assistance of our elderly friend Margaret Gates
when she fell and suffered a hip fracture at her home'about
three weeks ago. (I believe it was the DeFuniak Springs Police
Department and Walton County Fire Rescue who responded
to her call.
They took time to speak with the neighbor who stopped in
while they were there, which was much appreciated.
Mrs. Gates is well-liked for her caring ways; probably every-
one she knows, has received cards or letters from her and what-
ever practical assistance she can give, even at a sacrifice to
herself. She deserves the best, and has been in our prayers--as
have the loyal friends who regularly visit her while she is
recovering! She is doing well, and we thank the Lord.

Habitat for Huminaty

for Walton County

dedicates 11th house


,.:,..~
* ~ ~i. 4,.-


Members of the Habitat for
Humanity of Walton County
board of directors and staff,
family of Susan Murphy, vol-
unteers, and family and
friends of Tracy Johns, re-
cently came together to bless
and dedicate the eleventh
Habitat home in Walton
County. The late Susan
Murphy was the house spon-
sor.
"It is always such a heart
warming honor to present a
Habitat for Humanity home
to a family. Representing a
wonderful group of volun-
teers here in Walton County
is extremely uplifting. I had
the pleasure of working
alongside Tracy Johns doing
the sheet rock for house #11
and she is truly a talented
and deserving individual.
"She and her family will
enjoy an affordable home for
years to come through the
efforts of so many excellent,
volunteers. The Walton
County affiliate of Habitat
for Humanity has adopted a
more aggressive building
schedule to help more and
more families meet their
housing needs. Today's dedi-
cation is another step toward
putting Biblical principals
into action. Thank you all
and may the blessing of
Jesus Christ continue to in-
spire your good works." said
Dave Casey, President of the
Board of Directors.
"Susan Murphy left a gift
to Habitat for Humanity that
will improve the lives of sev-
eral families in Walton
County. Our deepest grati-
tude goes to her and her fam-
ily. Of course, there are so
many others to thank, in-
cluding the Leon
LaFramboise family for the
donation of land, the Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners, the City of


Mrs. Howard Morgan, left, Ellen Mayfield and Martha
Morgan.



"Finding Home"


By Ellen Mayfield
Memories! It's about the
Chautauqua Assembly and
The Victorian Tea.
I had just seated Mr. &
Mrs Robert Sellars at the Tea
and hurried off to seat oth-
ers. As I came back by their
table I stopped to inquire if
another pat of tea was
needed. Robert ignored my
request and instead told me
the couple just having been
seated were from Luverne,
Alabama. My heart skipped
a beat as I looked at the two
ladies and blurted out "oh,
that's my hometown!" The
young lady looked at me,
pushed her chair and as she
stood up called by name! I
choked up as I looked at the
mother and recognized who
they were.
You see, I was part of that
family, babysitting and help-
ing to care for their children
as a teenager throughout my


high school years. What a joy
for all of us to briefly remi-
nisce about the growing
years and the time Martha's
crinoline petticoat. caught
fire while playing with spar-
klers. I had forgotten that a
wet towel and a quick roll on
the ground saved Martha
from more than third degree
burns.
We felt like, we truly had
found home -- even for a day
-- in finding each other -- you
see --it has been fifty years!
Martha teaches law at the
University of Alabama and
visits her mother on week-
ends.

Thank you, Ann Robinson,
for choosing the theme of
"Finding Home" for this
year's assembly! Who knows
what wonderful treats are in
the store for us all as we
make memories and con-
tinue to "Find Home."


DeFuniak Springs, the many
churches and individuals
that continue to donate time
and money, the restaurants
and individuals that provide
lunches for the volunteers,
and the companies that do-
nate materials and services,"
said Sandy Smith, Executive
Director of Habitat for Hu-
manity of Walton County.
Habitat for Humanity of
Walton County is a non-
profit Christian-based orga-
nization dedicated to the
elimination of substandard
housing by building decent,
affordable housing and im-
proving the quality of life of
partner families.

Letter to the Editor
('


Editor,
Reference your editorial on March 1, 2007, I have seen
many good things concerning veterans come from the Bush
Administration since he became president. I have been work-
ing as the Walton County Veterans Service Officer for over
21 years. Therefore, I have served through several presi-
dential administrations.
First, I disagree with your final statement about this ad-
ministration not looking out for the sick, the injured, and
the poor. It is true that there have been waiting lines for
medical care. The VA had opened up medical care for all
veterans which included providing medicine, when the medi-
cine costs were taking a big chunk of income out of the
veteran's pockets. The VA had literally hundreds of thou-
sands of veterans sign up for $2 co-pay medication at the.
beginning and now the co-pay is $8 per prescription. Thus,
there was an enormous backlog and veterans had to wait.
The backlog was practically eliminated after several months.
It was in this administration that military retirees were
finally able to receive both retired pay and disability pay for
service-connected disabilities. The retiree receives this ex-
tra benefit by means of concurrent receipt or CRSC (Com-
bat-Related Pay). These benefits add up to billions of dol-
lars.
The VA has adapted their medical care in Iraq to meet the
needs of the wounded troops. For instance, those with brain
injuries from the road side bombs, the VA has developed treat-
ment that allows a good percentage of the brain injured
troops to live a normal life. They open up the scalp to let the
swelling go down and then sew the scalp back with a special
plate inserted. This procedure has helped stroke victims in
private sector as well. Many wounded troops lives are saved
by new procedures, new technology, and quick treatment
after injury that in the past has been fatalities.
War is awful but necessary at times. Intelligence was
flawed long before 9-11 for President Clinton, Europe and
most of the world though Saddam has WMDs. Hindsight is
clearer than foresight. The terrorist go to wherever the war
is. If we were only in Afghanistan, then that is where the
radicals would be. The radical Muslims have set off bombs
all around the world. They are determined. They will sacri-
fice themselves as suicide bombers. They are responsible for
9-11.
We have lost 3,000 plus soldiers in four years and several
thousand have been wounded. In other wars, we have lost
4,000 or more in one day. In WWII, we (Allies) lost 80,000
troops from 12-16-1944 through 1-31-1945, one month and
a half at the Battle of the Bulge. They attacked us. Europe
pretended Hitler would go away, but he didn't. Are Ameri-
cans to hide our heads in the sand and pretend the radicals
will go away.
. The president said from the beginning it would be a long,
drawn-out affair. Are we determined and willing? Time will
tell.
We have the fast-food philosophy, I am afraid, and with
that philosophy, we will lose. The U.S. hasn't won a war since
WWII. Our defeat in Iraq will only make things worse.
There was an oil filter commercial that said "pay me now
or pay me later." Pay me now is a $5 oil filter. Wait to later'
and buy a new motor.
Will we stand against the radicals now or will we wait
until later? It is our choice! We don't live in a perfect world.
There have always been lines. It takes times to shorten or
eliminate them. The Bush administration has done its share.
These are a few of benefits for this administration. Also
please note the budget for VA has increased by 77 percent
since the president took office."
Phil McMillian,
DeFuniak Springs


Convince store


robbery suspect


caught
Just after 3 p.m on March
10, members of the DeFu-
niak Springs Police (DFSPD)
Patrol Division received a
call of a reported robbery at
the Petro gas station located
near the intersection of U.S.
331 South and U.S. 90. It was
reported that a black male
suspect fled the store after
robbing the business of an
undetermined amount of
cash. The employee present,
who reported the robbery,
was uninjured

DFSPD Officers Rodney
Boblitt and Eddie Nelson ar-
rived to investigate the call
just over a minute after be-
ing dispatched, and obtained
further information from the
employee. The officers iden-
tified and questioned people
spotted in the area, and es-
tablished perimeters in the
adjacent residential neigh-
borhood where the suspect
was last seen.
Other DFSPD officers,
some off-duty at the time,
joined the efforts to locate the
suspect, including City Mar-
shal Mike Adkinson, as well
as Walton County Sheriff's
Office (WCSO) deputies.


Less than an hour after
the 911 call, DFSPD Investi-
gator Brian Schultz reported
having someone in custody,
inside the perimeter, who
matched the earlier aired de-
scriptions.
That person was later
identified as Richard Lee
Curry, 48, of DeFuniak
Springs. Schultz reported
Curry was found hiding in a
closet of a home at 118 West
Sloss Avenue. Schultz said
that during the apprehen-
sion, Curry had in his cur-
rency in the same amounts
reported by the store em-
ployee.
Curry had a trespass
warning issued to him, order-
ing that he not return to the
Petro station, for "unwel-
come behavior.
The employee said that
Curry entered the store and
purchased a beer, but when
the cash drawer opened for
the deposit of the money,
Curry advised her that he
had a gun, but assured her
she would not get hurt if she
remained still and did not do
anything. Curry reportedly
had his right hand concealed
beneath his shirt as if he was


holding a gun. No gun was
actually seen by the em-
ployee, nor was one located
at the time of the arrest. Ifhe
clerk recalled never seeing
Curry prior to the incident,


but did give a detailed de-
scription of him to police.
DFSPD later charged
Curry with robbery, grand
theft, and trespass after
warning.


Cyber Club makes changes


After nearly nine years of
meeting on Saturday, the
Chautauqua Cyber Club is
changing its meetings in or-
der to provide more interest-
ing programs and other dem-
onstrations that are avail-
able during the business
week. They will now meet on
the third Thursday each
month.
The club has been the place
to go for beginners to home
computing and those who
wish to advance their knowl-
edge. Over the years they
have provided computers to
the homebound and needy,


and assisted Okaloosa-Wal-
ton College by providing vol-
unteers to support a com-
puter loan program for adult
education and regular college
credit students.
The next meeting will be
Thursday, March 15, at 10
a.m., in room 154, at the
Chautauqua Center of Oka-
loosa-Walton College.
CHELCO will present a pro-
gram on home and computer
protection. All members and
visitors are welcome. For
more information contact
J.B. Hillard, 892-3450 or

Fighting fire



with training


THE FRONT PORCH of the training building with the training camp motto.


By REID TUCKER
Over the course of three
days, Walton County Fire
and Rescue (WCFR) is stag-
ing training exercises at a
home at 1603 Hwy. 183, do-
nated to the county by land
developers. The impending
housing development to be
constructed in the area ne-
cessitates that something be
done with the old house, so
the decision was made to al-
low WCFR to do with it as
they see fit.
Initially, the plan was to
burn the house as part of the
training exercises, going on
from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. and
then picking up again in the
evening from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m
Monday through Wednesday.


However, the Environmental
Protection Agency had other
ideas. The presence of asbes-
tos in the paint on the tin roof
of the building makes burn-
ing impossible. So, Fire and
Rescue decided to set up sev-
eral different training sta-
tions and two distinct emer-
gency simulation exercises,
both of which are replete
with hazards commonly en-
countered by firemen in the
field. The program will train
in excess of 100 different fire-
men over the course of three
days.
The training stations are
divided into different areas of
procedure for entering a
home in the event of a fire.
They include: air pack train-


ing, or how to ensure proper
oxygen equipment discipline
and ventilation instruction,
or the best ways to break
down walls, cut holes and
otherwise let noxious fumes
out of a burning building. Fi-
nally, the firemen must mas-
ter the procedure of what is
referred to as a SCBA (self-
contained breathing appara-
tus) Emergency, wherein a
fireman learns the proper
way to man handle his oxy-
gen tank and other equip-
ment, learning to fit through
small enclosures or around
obstacles.
These obstacles are many
and dangerous, ranging from

high-voltage, downed power
lines to the highly flammable
and explosive homemade
stimulant methamphet-
amine labs. Another equally
deadly object encountered on
the scene of a meth lab is the
pipe bomb, with which one
could level a building or a car.
There will, of course, be the
requisite smoke machine, en-
suring zero visibility within
the walls of the building.

The separate training ex-
ercises are the rapid inter-
vention training, where a
special squad is inserted to
rescue downed firefighters,
and a more typical 'victim
rescue' operation, where ob-
jects strewn about the floor
and wires across doorways
will hamper the firemen's
progress. A 165-pound
dummy will be substituted
for a real human person in
both situations.
Battalion Chief Danny
Fureigh said that the main


goal of these exercises was to
"train everyone in the same
way," so that when firemen
arrive on the scene "everyone
knows what to do. This will
make things more efficient
overall." Fureigh said that he


would "rather show them
how to do this now, rather
than in a real emergency."
Fureigh also added that
anyone in the area who
would like to donate a build-
ing of any variety to the


PAGE 15-A
county for additional train-
ing exercises should call 892-
6492. "Any house we could
train in would be appreci-
ated," Fureigh said, "even if
it's a shed, we could learn
something on it."

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, MARCH 15, 2007


By RON KELLEY
Once upon a time in
America, a person could visit
a bank and get a loan based
upon their good name and
reputation. The decision was
made right there by the bank
president and the loan of-
ficer. The person didn't have
to borrow more than they
needed and they usually got
the money within a few days.
There weren't a lot of hidden
fees and personal service was
the order of the day.
Sound old-fashioned?
Maybe so, but Bank of
Bonifay is an old-fashioned
kind of bank. In fact, it's
Florida's oldest community
banking system and while
their idea of service harkens
back to another era, Bank of
Bonifay President Steve
Thames said they also offer
all of the newer bells and
whistles that today's con-
sumers require.
"The Bank of Bonifay is
over 100 years old. We have
offices in Bonifay, Marianna,
Panama City Beach, Chipley
and Destin and now in De-
Funiak. We have a large cus-
tomer base that lives in and
around DeFuniak and so we
felt like it was very impor-
tant for us to be able to pro-
vide service to our customers
and access to the bank that's
a little more convenient," he
said. "Our plans are to have
a loan office here initially
with the intent to have a full-
service branch in place by the
end of the year."
The loan office is currently
housed inside the Naylor Re-
alty office suite on Baldwin
Avenue. The permanent site
for the bank will be on U.S.
331S, between Park and
Bruce avenues.
According to Thames, per-
sonalized service is their
hallmark and the thing that
sets them apart from other


bank, a O

new old *

philosophy


THE NEW FACES at the new Bank of Bonifay in DeFu-
niak Springs are (L-R) Jan Shadburn, Amy Tadlock, Tim
Wright and Steve Thames.


banks.
"We're locally owned and
decisions are made locally.
Convenience is one thing, but
personal service means a lot
more being able to know
your customers and meet
their needs. Being able to
have that flexibility, being
able to offer services that are
competitive and prices that
are competitive and yet meet
the needs of the individual,
is really a big plus for us,"
said Thames. "It's always
nice to be able to deal with a
customer based upon their
reputation.and the experi-
ence you've had with them,
not just their credit score or
their debt-to-income and
making sure it all fits in the
box."
Jan Shadburn, marketing
and public relations director,
agreed, saying, "Once size
doesn't fit all and we like to
focus on service. At the same
time, we'll offer online bank-
ing, ACH direct-deposit and
all the things that customers
are looking for in the 21st
century."
Both men say that cus-
tomers will notice a different
banking philosophy with the
first phone call.
Thames said, "Once of the
things that we've made a
pledge on is you won't ever
find us with an automated
answering service on our
switchboard. We'll have real


people answering the phone.
In most communities, people
bank with people they know,
that they feel comfortable
with, and they don't care
what you call it or what chain
it is. It's the people there that
make the difference. I feel
like the people we've brought
to DeFuniak lend a lot to
that. Having the right people
here makes a world of differ-
ence."
Thames praised Bank of
Bonifay Vice President Tim
Wright, who will head up the
DeFuniak Springs branch,
and Amy Tadlock, the loan
administrator. Tadlock will
be the face people see first
when they enter the Baldwin
Avenue office. She and
Wright will operate the ini-
tial loan office while the
larger facility is being built.
Thames said they chose
that location because it is in
the middle of the business
community, accessible with
room to grow. He said a com-
munity bank's niche is work-
ing with small businesses,
working professionals, indi-
vidual owners and retirees,
to help them in making deci-
sions and staying informed.
"We're not looking to try to
be all things to all people," he
said. "We're looking to be a
player in the business com-
munity and a participant in
the success of DeFuniak
Springs."

On March 18, Saint
Agatha's Episcopal Church
welcomes to its Lakeside
Concert Series the trio, com-

Houlgate and Robin Mason
Horne. They have appeared
before at Saint Agatha's con-
cert series, and have always
been received with great en-
thusiasm. The concert will
begin at 3 p.m. and will be
followed by a reception hon-
oring the artists. This also
gives concert goers an oppor-
tunity to meet and talk with
the performers.
Carol Hayes, the violinist/
violist, was formerly with the
'United States Marine Cham-
ber Orchestra, which served
the White House on state oc-
casions. She has performed
in almost every concert
venue, performed with nu-
merous symphony orchestras
and taught in several univer-
sities. Hayes has appeared
with the symphony orches-
tras of Pensacola and Mobile,


and has been assistant con-
certmaster for the Northwest
Florida Orchestra.
Judith Houlgate, cellist,
studied in Los Angeles and
attended the University of
California at Santa Barbara.
She teaches privately, and
performs with other trios at
a variety of events.
Robin Mason Horne, flut-
ist, has been an active
teacher and performer in the
Fort Walton Beach area for
almost 30 years. She is prin-
cipal flutist with the North-
west Florida Philharmonic
and the Northwest Florida
Symphony Orchestra.
The program features
works by Handel, Danzi and
Daniel Kelley. The works by
Kelley are opera arias from
four compositions, including
"Carmen".
There is no admission fee
for the concert, but a collec-
tion will be taken up to sup-
port the series.

Green Grow The Shamrocks

Green grows the shamrocks
in the meadow bright.
Their little faces,
Smiling in the light!
Green grows the springtime,
with its lovely view.
Look for the rainbow,
in pretty pastel hues.
Green grows the woodland,
with oak trees so tall.
Shamrocks and Shillelaghs
are fun for one and all!
Green sports the Irish
on St. Patrick's Day.
Find a four leaf clover
your luck's on display!
Green grows the fields,
white clouds floating by.
Irish songs fill the air,
like a lullaby.
Green grows the shamrocks,
in beds fresh and new.
Such are God's blessings
for me and for you!
By Mary Ann Whiddon

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, MARCH 15, 2007


STUDENTS OF CORNERSTONE CHRISTIAN ACADEMY collected pennies to benefit
the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.


Local students raise



pennies for patients


Local students raised
$597.08 in their Pennies for
Patients program. Students
at Cornerstone Christian
Academy and Preschool in
DeFuniak Springs collected
pennies for patients to ben-
efit the Leukemia and Lym-
phoma Society during the
month of February. After
three weeks of students
bringing their spare change
to the school, the total was
$597.08.
Leukemia is the leading
cause of cancer death among
children. An estimated
747,465 Americans have


blood cancers, and every five
minutes, someone new is di-
agnosed. Since 1992, millions
of dollars have been raised in
pennies and other spare
change by more than 12 mil-
lion elementary, middle and
high school students nation-
wide.
The mission of The Leuke-
mia and Lymphoma Society
is to cure leukemia, lym-
phoma, Hodgkins' disease
and myeloma, and improve
the quality of life of patients
and their families.
"These students serve as
an example to all by their


commitment to helping oth-
ers," said Carolyn Boos, ex-
ecutive director for the Ala-
bama/ Gulf Coast Chapter,
"Their efforts will help local
patients and their families
along with funding blood can-
cer research at many local
hospitals and cancer research
center."

In Loving Memory
of
Willard L. Carroll Willard J. Carroll
August 20,1939 March 11, 2003 August 22, 1979 March 11, 2003

Our greatest losses in life
Are loved ones, who've passed on
Always hard to handle,
But harder when the order is wrong.

The pain of losing a lifetime mate
is a crushing blow, at the least,
A terrible ache that won't dissipate,
That buckles the heart as the knees.

But what greater loss for parents,
Than a child born of their flesh,
cut off an arm... cut out a heart,
such pain would surely be less.

Many times we've heard it said,,
And we know that it is so,
The greater the pain one sustains.
The closer to God one grows.
No child, no parent, no mate,
whoever has loved and been loved,
Can be as close to those who love them
As to their God who loves from above.

While God wants no one to suffer,
Sometimes that is God's way,
To bring a person totally to Him,
By taking a loved one away.

When this happens a person is given
A place for their sorrow to go,
As the Holy Spirit moves in,
And enters the grieving one's soul.

Assured of reunion in heaven,
And with peace now residing within,
One can handle such separation,
As a closer union with God begins.
We Love and Miss you both,


Your wife, Patricia
Your daughter, Amie
Your grandson, Joseph
Your granddaughter, Jamie

Your son, Joseph

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, MARCH 15, 2007


by DR. ROBERT M. JAYE
Great multitudes followed
Jesus, according to the Scrip-
tures. Yet He came to minis-
ter, not to be ministered unto.
Knowing people, He called
those who would follow Him.
One of these was Matthew, a
publican, as read in Matthew
9:9-13.
We see the call of grace.
"Jesus said unto him, Follow.
me". (v.9). Popularity would
never have called a publican,
for they were hated by the
people. As water seeks the
lowest level, so grace seeks
the neediest soul.All men are
at liberty to follow Him, but


He calls sinners to repen-
tance.
We see the obedience of
faith. At the command of
Jesus, Matthew "arose and
followed Him" (v.9). It is pos-
sible to believe much about
Jesus, yet in heart not to fol-
low and obey Him. Matthew
"left all and followed Him." It
was true of Abraham. Both
he and Matthew believed
God.
We see the proof of great
love (Luke 5:29). Matthew,
also called Levi, made a feast
for Jesus and called many of
his fellow publicans to hear
Him. Following Jesus is a


wonderful experience Jesus
resting with us in the home
of the heart.
We see the place of hope.
"Many came, and sat down
with Him" (v.10). At the feet
of Jesus is the place of hope.
There is room and welcome
* for all there. There is mercy
with Him. Sit with Him in
His rejection, and you will sit
with Him in His resurrection
glory


We see the condition of
need. Jesus answered others
in Mark 2:17, saying, "The
whole need not a physician,
but they that are sick." The
Pharisees, like thousands
still, did not see themselves
as sin-sick, but self-satisfied.
The purpose of Christ is to
seek and to save those which
are lost. Christ's is a great
remedy which has effect for
sinners like me. And you?

When it matters most



JERRY EVANS
951-0668
rJ.orr, Porlic.:. Prl,,ai. Framil, Enrird3rE anrI Parkinrg

Since opening in 1999 the families we have served have posed
many questions to us concerning funerals and funeral service. We
have compiled the top 10 questions we have been asked most
frequently:

#7 We had a loved one die several years ago and the funeral home
that we used brought food to the house: why don't you do that?

The answer is two-fold. Simply put JERRY EVANS is a funeral
home, not a restaurant or food caterer. When a member of a family
dies, we devote our full attention and expertise to those things we
are licensed to do, and those things we do best. Full attention is
given to the care and preparation of the deceased. Attention to
detail is given to every aspect of the forth coming visitation and
funeral service. The necessary legal paperwork is completed effi-
ciently and properly and error free.
Secondly, with the rising cost of just about everything in the mar-
ket place it is a well known fact that somebody has to pay for all of
the unnecessary extras. Unnecessary, because in most cases
there is a wealth of food that comes to the family from friends and
neighbors at a time of loss. At JERRY EVANS we choose not to
pass hidden extra expenses on to the family.

The hundreds and hundreds of families we have been privi-
leged to serve say it best ....... Ask them.


Mr. James Zink, 41, of De-
Funiak Springs, FL, passed
away Dec. 26, 2006 at his
residence. He was born Jan.
5, 1965 in Hinsdale, IL to
Fred and Karen Zink.
Zink had lived in DeFu-
niak Springs for the past
seven years. He was
Lutheran by faith. He had
been a long distance truck
driver.
Zink was predeceased by
his sister, April Hanks,
grandparents, George Sr. and
Ruth Kozak and Betty Zink..
Zink is survived by his fa-
ther and mother, Fred and
Karen Zink, of DeFuniak
Springs, FL; his brother,

threw a two-hitter and Wal-
ton committed six errors as

their second district loss of

Pensacola Catholic and 5-1
by the Chiefs.
Northview took a 1-0 lead
in the top of the first inning
only to see Walton tie the con-
test at 1-1 with a run in the
bottom of the second.,
The Chiefs were able to
scratch out seven hits in the
contest as they scored two
runs in the third inning for a
3-1 lead, then added solo
runs in the fifth and sixth
innings to up the lead to the
final 5-1 margin.
.Jur.n thann Thomans took
,the loss on the mound for the
Braves, but had one of
Walton's two hits in the con-
test.
; Walton (1-4) will travel to
Northview on Friday for a
'rematch with the Chiefs at 4
p.m. Walton's last trip to
Northview ended well as the

By CHUCK HINSON
It .was all over except the
celebration, the crying and
snipping the net, and that is
exactly what No. 1-seeded
Florida did after their 77-56
blowout over Arkansas for
the SEC title and a berth in
the NCAA play-offs.

It seems that football is not
the only thing that the
Gator athletic fans have to
celebrate. It is now their bas-
ketball team, that only a few
weeks ago looked as if it
would be staying home and
not even get a chance to par-


ticipate in the SEC tourna-
ment in Atlanta.
Many thought the Gators
(29-5) looked sloppy and vul-
nerable at the end of thier
regular season scheduled
games, but it didn't take long
on Sunday, to see that they
were headed for another
chance at the SEC and pos-
sibly the NCAA title. It
seems they are the little en-
gine that wouldn't give up.
Still reeling from thier
NCAA championship a year
ago, coupled with beating
Ohio State for the NCAA na-
tional championship in foot-


ball in January, Florida still
seems to want and needs to
prove they want more.
Arkansas, playing in their
first SEC title game since
2000, stayed close for awhile-
but Florida seemed to be able
to slowly corrode their de-
fense and the Gator offense
came alive and took'control.
Arkansas (21-13) did hang
with Florida longer than
most any other SEC team
had during the tournament,
or for that matter, for the sea-
son, but Florida just had too
much of whatever Arkansas
lacked.


Al Horford, the game's
MVP, scored 18 points and
had 12 rebounds, while
Joakim Noah had 17 points,
four assists and eight re-
bounds for 'the Gators. The
two team played evenly un-
til just before the halftime
mark when Florida began its
climb of scoring and eventu-
ally ran away with the game
at the start of the third quar-
ter.

The Gators hope to snip
down one last net on April 2
if they win the NCAA tour-
nament.

Third time's a



charm for Johnson


By CHUCK HINSON
Not only did he beat his
racing team buddy, he also
soared to another racing win
at the Las Vegas Speedway
on Sunday. Jimmie Johnson
made it three in-a-row and
sits in a. good spot as one of
the top contenders in the
Nextel Cup race.
Johnson had to overcome a
few obstacles such as track
changes that owner Burton
Smith made, included a 20
degree bank, instead of the


I n EL
WI/ILL-/


usual 12 degree, and a pit
lane that took most drivers
by surprise. Because of the
speed that the track pro-
duced, special tires had to be
brought in by Goodyear, to
handle the loads of the cars
as they took the increased
curves.

Despite a pit-road penalty
and a scraping by the wall,
Johnson maintained the lead
with 89 laps out of 267. The
win gave him his 150th


NASCAR victory for
Hendrick Motorsports.
Jeff Gordon, Johnson's
team mate, suffered because
of Johnson's win. He main-
tained the lead for most of
the race by leading 111 laps.
After pulling into the pit with
what he thought was a flat
tire, he gave up the lead with
32 laps to go.
Gordon came in second, fol-
lowed by Denny Hamlin,
Matt Kenseth, Mark Martin
and Carl Edwards.

Sports News and Notes


By PATRICK CASEY
The Okaloosa-Walton soft-
ball team went 2-2 in the
Jimmie Stewart Memorial
Tournament over the week-
end to stand at 12-14 on the
year. The OWC baseball
team swept North Florida
over the weekend to start the
Panhandle Conference slate
with a 3-0 record. The Raid-
ers are 18-8 on the year and
will face a three-game series
with Gulf Coast this week-
end.

Paxton and South
Walton's boys track teams


finished eighth and ninth out
of nine teams in the Max
Bruner Invitational over the
weekend. Paxton's girls
brought home a fifth-place
finish as Vikki Pepper won
the discus with Tareisa
Reese earning second in the
shot put. The Walton girls
finished ninth.

The Florida State baseball
team swept Indiana over the
weekend to improve to 20-0
on the season. FSU begins
conference play on Friday as
they entertain Wake Forest
for a three-game series in


their ACC opener.
Aucilla Christian baseball
coach Ray Hughes picked up
his 500th win last week.
Hughes, 60, has a record of
500-225 and is in his 31st
season as leader of the War-
riors.

It pays to have home field
advantage, as Chipola won
both the men's and women's
state basketball titles over
the weekend to both advance
to the national junior college
tournament. The Chipola
women edged Gulf Coast 60-
57 to win their second con-


secutive title, while the
Chipola men bashed Central
Florida 84-67 to win their
third title in the last four sea-
sons.

XM Radio has lured the
Southeastern Conference
away from Sirius radio with
six schools to be featured in
2007, with several of the
other schools that are still
under contract to Sirius Ra-
dio to follow when their deals
expire. The following institu-
tions will participate in the
new agreement starting in
the fall of 2007: Arkansas,


Georgia, Kentucky, Ole Miss,
Mississippi State, and Ten-
nessee. South Carolina will
join XM in 2008, followed by
Florida in 2009. Alabama,
Auburn, and Vanderbilt are
unable to participate at the
moment because of contrac-
tual commitments to Sirius
through the 2007-08 aca-
demic year. LSU has elected
not to participate in the SEC
/XM agreement at this time.

The Cotton Bowl Athletic
Association Board of Direc-
tors voted to move the AT&T
Cotton Bowl Classic to the


new Dallas Cowboys Sta-
dium in Arlington from the
current site at Fair Park's
Cotton Bowl Stadium. The
move was approved without
a single no-vote during a
scheduled CBAA Board of
Directors meeting at the
Hilton Anatole Hotel in Dal-
las. The first New Year's Day
Classic scheduled to be
played in the new stadium is
in January 2,010 as the game
will remain at its current site
for the next two seasons.

The Prudential Spirit of
Community Awards were
created in 1995 to recognize
students who have demon-
strated exemplary commu-
nity service. The awards pro-
gram is sponsored by Pru-
dential Financial in partner-
ship with the National Asso-
ciation of Secondary School
"- Principals (NASSP).
Sixty-five students from
across Florida received invi-
tations to attend the Pruden-
tial Spirit of Community
Awards program at the Palm
Beach Atlantic University in
West Palm Beach, Fl on
March 10.
Kathleen Foy, a Senior at
Walton Senior High School in
DeFuniak Springs was one of
the students to receive an
J invitation. Kathleen was ac-
companied by her dad to
West Palm Beach.
-- Through her active role in
the community, Kathleen
Foy was chosen from her
class to represent Walton
High School in the Pruden-
tial Spirit of Community
Award application. The ap-
plication required each par-
ticipant to submit a commu-
nity service project they cre-
ated and accomplished.


Kathleen's project was
"Stockings for Soldiers."
Her project idea wa's ac-
complished with the help of
the Walton High Anchor
Club and the surrounding
community. During the pro-
gram each student was
called to the podium, a brief
history was read of the stu-
dent, a small gift was given
to the student, and a profes-
sional photographer took a
photograph.
A luncheon was served dur-
ing the program attended by
approximately 250 people.
The event was hosted by
Scott Hart of Prudential and
the guest speaker was Ray
Titus, President of the
United Franchise Group.
At the end of the program,
the top two students were
recognized and each received
a check for $1,000 dollars.
Kathleen Foy from Walton
Senior High School was one
of the two winners. Kathleen
was shocked and very hon-
ored.
Kathleen's parents are Jo-
seph and Yolinda Foy. Grand-
parents are Sam and Maggie
Martin of DeFuniak Springs,
Florida and Joe and Lois Foy
of Campbellton, FL.


WEST DEFUNIAK ELEMENTARY'S fourth graders participated 'in an essay contest and the winners were treated to
lunch at Pizza Hut with Mrs. Hinote. The students, left to right are, Kayla Jackson, Megan Matthews, Francisca Ramirez,
Matthew Majors, Nick Wilkinson and Krystal Newhouse.

Learning to Take the


Fall


By REID TUCKER
Under the over of dark-
ness on the evening of Sat-
urday, March 3, the flamboy-
ant athletes of Southern Pro
Wrestling descended on the
Walton County Fairgrounds.
The first match of the
evening was typical wres-
tling fare for anyone who has
seen an event like this tele-
vised. It included all the ele-
ments of such an event, com-
plete with trash-talking, mi-
crophone swapping and
heated dialog between com-
batants. It was called a
"Mask Match." Following af-
ter the tradition of Mexican
luchador wrestlers, both
wore colorful masks hiding
their identities, reinforcing
what female wrestler "Miss
Fire" said of her profession,
"We feel like superheroes."
"Tiger Lee," a short, but pow-
erfully built man in a Chi-
nese-style suit wore a mask
that looked like his name-
sake: a tiger, with large ears.
Lee's opponent was the
white-masked "Medic,"
taller, larger than Lee, he
was nevertheless beaten, his
mask pulled from his head,
screaming.
The second match was for
the SPW Lightweight Title
between "Chuck Thunder"
and Brian Grace. This par-
ticular match-up was signifi-
cant in that it was what is
referred to as a "lumberjack
match." Essentially what
happens is when one of the
wrestlers is thrown outside
of the ring, all of the other
wrestler's posse comes out of
nowhere and beat his oppo-
nent with belts and leather
straps. Thunder went for the
three count after the success-
ful execution of his signature
move, the Thunderclap.
The other matches of the
night were filled with simi-
lar events: brass knuckles
were employed, submission
moves resulted in "tap-outs,"
a three-way match between
light heavyweights con-
cluded with double-crosses
and triple entendres, and
there was even a tag-team
match featuring all ten of
SPW regular wrestlers. The
stage was set for their next


awe PM1 4


event at Panama City, as
Miss Fire would take on her
arch-rival, "heiress"
Makenzie York.
After the event had offi-
cially concluded, Johnny
Allstar and fellow, an-
nouncer/promoter Brian
Reese spoke of their lifelong
interest in wrestling. "I came
as a photographer before be-
ing asked to be a ring an-
nouncer," Reese said, and
since September has been
commentator and webgroup
moderator for Miss Fire.
Wrestler Lighting Jack has
wrestled with SPW since its
inception six years ago. He
said, "its just something I
enjoy. There is nothing like
going out in front of those
fans and seeing their smiling
faces."
The SPW member longest
involved 'in the sport, "The
Trooper" has been wrestling
for more than 18 years, and
has gone against some of the
biggest names in the busi-
ness. Finally, young new-
comer to the sport "E Money"
has been wrestling since May
of 2006. I fear nothing and
regret less," he said. "I give
100 percent, every time I go
out there," he said. He plans
to make SPW his spring-
board to achieve stardom in
the WWE.
The common thread
among all the participants
was the seriousness of the
wrestlers, their commitment
their profession, their love
for the sport. Training for
this kind of wrestling takes
time, six months, at least,
"just learning how to fall,"
said Miss Fire. SPW prefers
for its wrestlers to have
trained for a year or more to
make sure they know all the
moves.
Miss Fire has been in-
volved in karate since she
was four years old, and it was
her wrestler father that in-
troduced her to his sport,
leading to the creation of
SPW. "We want to overcome
the myth of fakeness," Miss
Fire said. "It's not choreo-
graphed, like a dance. We try
to keep it a controlled sport,"
she said. However, "If some-
one can get out of your move,

they're going to put you in
their's."
Southern Pro Wrestling is
active throughout the south-
east and gulf coast. This was
the third year that SPW has
come to' DeFuniak Springs,
and president/promoter Tara
Ivey said it won't be the last
time, with the next event
scheduled for Friday, April
13, 2007.
SPW was formed six years'
ago when several wrestlers
from around Ashford, AL
came together and decided to
cooperate for the purposes of
gaining notoriety for indi-
vidual wrestlers within their
profession. Since that time,
SPW has grown into one of
the more prolific regional
wrestling federation's, as
Ivey said, "we get big name
wrestlers every few months"
to appear at venues, allow-
ing greater exposure for SPW


THE TEN MAN finale gets underway.


wrestlers and "a chance to
work with some of the best
in the business." For ex-
ample, former World Wres-
tling Entertainment/ World
Championship Wrestling/
Total Nonstop Action Wres-
tling star Buff "The Stuff'
Bagwell will appear with the
SPW regulars at the
federation's next event in
Panama City,on March' 23.
Another of the SPW's claims
to fame is its high number of
scheduled events. Ivey said,


"We run more shows than
any federation locally." Addi-
tionally, she said that the
SPW puts on a show most
every weekend somewhere
within its sphere of influ-
ence.
SPW is not just about
wrestling. Aside from the ex-
posure garnered by their
wrestlers being pitted
against more famous coun-
terparts, SPW performs an-
other function. As Ivey ex-
plained, "We do it for fun and


to support local charities."'
SPW is a full-time.supporter'
of Friends of the Disabled,'
among others groups, and
are available for fund-raising,
for any charity. Indeed, Ivey
explained, a large portion of
the ticket revenue goes to the,
support of these charities.
Additional information re-
garding SPW can be found at
their web site,
southernpro.net, or their
phone number, 1-334-793-

By DOTTY NIST
An innovation is now be-
coming available to facilitate
recycling in Walton County.
Currently recycling is ac-
complished in two ways
within the county. Inmates
from the Walton Correc-
tional Institute go through
trash once it is brought to the
county landfill by waste col-
lection companies, separat-
ing out recyclable items for
reuse.
Alternatively, residents
may take their glass, alumi-
num, and plastic recyclables,
plus newspapers, and deposit
these items in the 20 blue
bins located at various loca-
tions in the county. Walton
County provides and main-
tains these bins, which have
separate sections for the dif-
ferent categories of
recyclables.
Until now, these bins were
the only means for recycling
newspaper, which, to be re-
used, must be kept dry and
clean.
Now, newspaper and other
recyclables can be separated
from other trash at home and
enclosed in special blue trash
bags that are available at
some local 'grocery stores.
The bags allow residents to
recycle from home, much like

Santa Rosa .Beach resi-
dent Christina Scally spear-
headed this innovation, and
Butler Elementary School
students assisted by signing
petitions urging local stores
to make the blue bags avail-
able for purchase.
Scally said that places
such as Dallas, Chicago, and
Modesto, California, are al-
ready incorporating the use
of the colored bags in their re-
cycling programs.
As a result of the efforts
of Scally and the students,
the blue bags are now avail-
able at the Publix stores at
WaterColor and at Grande
Boulevard, at the WalMart in
Destin, and at the Kelley's
Supervalu on Hwy. 20 in
Freeport.


"Other stores are in the
process of getting approval
from upper management,"
Scally noted.
It is recommended for
newspapers to be put in a
separate blue bag from other
items in order to keep them
in proper condition for recy-
cling.
Ken Little, Walton County
citizen services director, said
he welcomes the effort and
that it "would certainly be
helpful" to the county's recy-
cling program.

Walton County had ap-
peared to be ready to be
ready to vote proposed
lighting ordinance up or
down this month, but on
March 13, county commis-
sioners agreed to postpone a
decision until April.
The commission-ap-
pointed 10-member volun-
teer Lighting Ordinance


Grill and Ella Caro, spoke
out against an exemption.
Caro maintained that the
exemption would "decimate"
a "logical and protective"
measure.
She stated that only
"across the board" ordi-
nances are "fair, effective and
legal."
Caro commented that the

Committee had begun work-
ing on the proposed ordi-
nance in fall 2005.
Last month, the first read-
ing of the draft ordinance
was conducted. A minimum
of two readings is required
for approval of an ordinance.
The proposed ordinance
focuses on preventing the
negative impacts of disrup-
tive lighting on residents re-
sulting from light trespass
from other property. It does
not address the impact of
lighting on sea turtle nest-
ing.
The ordinance met with
both support and objections
at its first reading in conjunc-
tion with the Feb. 27 meet-
ing of the Walton County
Board of County Commis-
sioners (BCC.)
Opposition at the first
reading was by two Mossy
Head ranch owners, who
were concerned that the or-
dinance would prevent them
from using bright floodlights
to monitor livestock at night
and protect cattle and horses
from predators.
They requested an exemp-
tion for agriculturally-desig-
nated areas.
The second reading had
been set for March 13.
At that time, Lois La Seur,
Walton County planning
manager, requested that the
BCC put off action on the
proposed ordinance for a
month in order to allow plan-
ners time to work out lan-
guage for the agricultural
exemption that had been
suggested by the ranchers.

be allowed for existing non-
conforming lighting to come
into compliance.
Sue Grill told the commis-
sioners that the Lighting Or-

bers, in crafting the .ordi-
nance, had "walked a fine
line" between the desires of
different segments of the
population. Those had in-

added that the draft ordi-

Drive-throughs get go-ahead in south Walton


By LEAH STRATMANN
Among the two legislative
items heard by the planning
commission last week, one
ordinance was proposed
which would amend the Wal-
ton County Land Develop-
ment Code section regarding
drive-through facilities in ar-
eas designated as coastal
center land use.
Planning director Pat
Blackshear told the commis-
sioners current coastal cen-
ter language currently omits
banks under allowed uses.
"We have inserted financial
institutions under allowed
uses," she said. However, she


pointed out that drive-
throughs must be located in
the rear of the property and
be as far as possible from the
central road. In addition,
landscape buffers must also
be in place. All banking
drive-throughs must be be-
hind the road and properly
buffered so it can't be seen
from the scenic corridor, she
said. "The current code calls
for a 25-foot buffer from resi-
dential areas and I would
also add some language
about the screening of head-
lights," she added.
Speaking on behalf of the
South Walton Community


"Having a bank in your backyard is just
as obtrusive as any other business. A 25-
foot buffer does not help when ATMs are
used 24 hours a day," said Bob Hudson.


Council, Anita Page noted
that a coastal center desig-
nation is a broad swatch that
is primarily residential.
"When the drive-through
language was originally
struck, it was done so be-
cause it would have opened


up the land to fast-food res-
taurants. If coastal center is
opened to fast-food establish-
ments, they need to be on
Hwy 98. A bank closes early,.
as opposed to, a fast food res-
taurant; then we need to look
at where they will be located


SWFD to interview more chief candidates


By DOTTY NIST
The South Walton Fire
District (SWFD) will inter-
view additional candidates
for the vacant chief position,
and fire commissioners may
make a selection on March
19.

The fire commissioners'
previous top choice, Ray
Colburn of the Orlando area,
declined a job offer from the
SWFD last month. Thus far
the chiefs job has not been
offered to any other candi-
date.

Gilbert reported that addi-
tional applications had been
received and that he had also
contacted some search firms
who would be sending candi-
date proposals, which would
be turned over to the search

The fire commissioners
voted to set up a formal
search committee meeting at
1:30 p.m. on March 19 at the
fire district headquarters to
interview candidates, with a
special fire commissioners'
meeting to follow at 4 p.m.

Attached to the grant is
the requirement that at least
half of the homes be made
available to essential person-
nel such as teachers, law en-
forcement officers, and hos-
pital workers, with the re-
mainder being available for
workers in the private sector.
Blue said eligibility re-
quirements are being set up
to offer homes to employees
earning from $30,000 to
$63,000 annually. One hun-
dred percent financing will
be available for 30-year mort-
gages through a rural hous-

and if any additional buffer-
ing is needed," she con-
cluded.
Citizen Bob Hudson said,
"Having a bank in your back-
yard is just as obtrusive as
any other business. A 25-foot
buffer does not help when
ATMs are used 24 hours a
day."
Commissioner Tom Patton
made a motion to approve
the ordinance provided it
was further amended to pro-
vide not only a buffer but also
a lighting screen. Sally,
Merrifeld seconded the mo-
tion and all approved it.
The commissioners were
asked to consider a major de-
velopment known as Mara-
thon Village, a 175,859
square foot project of retail
space on 6.6 acres with land
use designations of coastal
center and NPA-infill. The
project is located on the south
side of U.S. Hwy-98, east of
Ellis Road and west of North
Holiday Road.
Speaking for the county,
planner Tim Brown said the
project is consistent with the
land development code. The
developer is being asked 'to
provide a 60-foot dedicated
right-of-way and build a road
to county standards. The
county also wants an ingress/


egress easement on the prop-
erty. The county further
asked for a 25-foot buffer on
Hwy 98 with an additional
30-feet of landscaping on the
south side of the project.
Commissioner Patton
made a motion to approve
the project with the staff pro-
visions. All approved the mo-
tion.
The final project under
consideration last week was
the Alaqua Valley Commer-
cial Pa-rk. This is a majoi, ap-
plication consisting of 16 of-
fice/warehouses on.22.93
acres of land with a land use
designation of industrial.
The park will be located on
the west side of Indian Creek
Road.
Jason Bryan said the
project met county code con-
ditions once all the Depart-
ment of Transportation docu-
ments were secured. He
noted the builder would par-
ticipate in sidewalk buyouts
and there were some
wrinkles to be ironed out on
right-of-way issues, but oth-
erwise the project was con-
sistent with land develop-
ment code,
There being no public in-
put, a motion was made to
approve the project and all
voted yes on the motion.

WATER CONSERVATION TIPS


* Time your shower to keep it under 5 minutes.
You'll save up to 100 gallons a month.

* When doing laundry, match the water level to
the size of the load.

* Teach your children to turn the faucet off tightly
after each use.

* Make sure you know where your master water
shut-off valve is located. This could save gallons
of water and damage to your home if a pipe were
to burst.

* Use a hose nozzle and turn off the water while
you wash your car and save more than 100 gal-
lons.

* Encourage your friends and nieghbors to be part
of a water-conscious community.

* Choose new w ater-saving appliances, like wash-
ing machines that save up to 20 gallons per load.

* Encourage your school system and local govern-
ment to help develop and promote a water conser-
vation ethic amon2 children and adults.

Movie Review


"300" even the credits bleed


BOB WHITTAKER, AS Petruchio, and Christa Whittaker,
as Kate, rehearse their lead roles for the OWC production of
Shakespeare's comedy, "The Taming of the Shrew" set to ap-
pear March 21 to 24 at The Arts Center's Sprint Theater in
Niceville.


OWC 'Taming of

Shrew' March 21- 24,

tickets now on sale


The classic battle of the
sexes can be seen with
Okaloosa-Walton College's
production of "The Taming
of the Shrew" by William
Shakespeare, on March 21 to
24 in the Sprint Theater at
The Arts Center at OWC in
Niceville, FL.

OWC's production stays
true to all of Shakespeare's
original language but offers
a modern twist by setting the
action in the present rather
than in Elizabethan times.
Director Clint Mahle hopes
the choice to use modern day
costumes will help make
Shakespeare's comedic mas-
terpiece more accessible to
today's audience.
The "battle" centers on
Petruchio who is the "tamer",
played by Bob Whittaker,
and Katherina, the "shrew",
played by Christa Whittaker.
The roles were made famous
in the 1967 Franco Zeffirelli
film with memorable perfor-
mances by Richard Burton
and Elizabeth Taylor. Like
the Burton and Taylor pair-
ing in the film classic, OWC's
leads are also played by a
husband and wife team,- an
added twist Mahlesays re-
ally adds depth to the pro-
duction. The OWC produc-
tion is described as rated
"PG" for Shakespeare's
earthy authentic language
and concepts.
Tickets for "The Taming of
the Shrew" are available now
from the OWC Arts Center
box office for $15 adult and
$10 for students grades K
through 12. Show times are
Wednesday, March 21
through Saturday, March 24,
at 7:30 p.m. and Saturday,
March 24, at 2 p.m. OWC
students may attend the pro-
duction free of charge with a
student ID. Student nights
are Monday, March 19 and
Tuesday, March 20. Tickets
may be purchased by phone
from the box office at 729-
6000 or in-person from the
box office window. Seating is
limited.
The play is set in the mod-
ern resort town of Padua
where a wealthy widow,
Baptista, has two daughters:
Katherina and Bianca. Be-
cause of Katherina's shrew-
ish disposition, her mother
has declared that no one
shall wed Bianca until such
time as Katherina has been
married. A wealthy college
student, Lucentio of Pisa, is
one of many suitors to the
younger and gentler Bianca.
He devises a scheme in which
he and his female servant,
Tranio, will switch clothes,
and she will become he.
Lucentio will offer his ser-
vices as a tutor for Bianca in
order to get closer to her.
At this point, enter
Petruchio, traveling by mo-
torcycle with his servant
Grumio. They arrive in
Padua to visit Petruchio's
friend Hortensio, another
suitor to Bianca. Hortensio,

that the sun is the moon. Af-
ter many sleepless days and
nights, an exhausted
Katherina is indeed "tamed"
into docility... or is she?


By BRUCE COLLIER
Zack Snyder's "300" tells
the story of the battle of'
Thermopylae, the desperate
defense of a narrow Greek
mountain pass by 300 Spar-
tan soldiers against an esti-
mated 1 million Persian
troops.
Snyder has based his film
on a "graphic novel" (the lit-
erature formerly known as
"comic books") by Frank
Miller. Miller made a repu-
tation revamping Batman
from camp figure to dark
knight. With "300," he strips
history down to near-mythic
simplicity. The result is a
strong dose of operatic melo-
drama, heavy on the rheto-
ric and even heavier on the
gore. "300" spills more blood
than the "Lord of the Rings"
and "Godfather" trilogies
combined. All that in two
hours.
The main character is
Leonidas, king of Sparta,
played by Gerard Butler.
Leonidas and his spouse,
Queen Gorgo, played by Lena
Headey, preside over a mili-
tary-state. Spartan males are
trained from the cradle up in
the profession of arms. Spar-
tan women are trained to
"bear real men," and always
speak the truth to their
menfolk. Spartan men are
crazy about them. Remem-
ber that Helen of Troy, who
inspired a ten-year war, was
a Spartan woman.
Into this world marches
Xerxes, king of Persia,
played by Rodrigo Santoro.
Modestly styling himself as
"King of Kings" and "Lord of
Hosts,' Xerxes has pretty
much pocketed the known
world, and wants to add the
Greek city-states to his bag.
When the Spartans up
and kill his ambassadors,
Xerxes sends a million-man
army of conquest. Leonidas


LaCOUR (L) drops off a donation of needed goods to RSVP
Volunteer Coordinator Jean Harvey. .



RSVP extends


Easter Basket


donation deadline


Items accepted through March 31


By JEFFREY POWELL
The Retired and Senior
Volunteer Program (RSVP)
of Walton County has ex-
tended their senior Easter
basket donation drive from
February 28 to March 31 due
to shortages in donations.
"We have extended our
drive due to a severe lack of
donations," said RSVP Vol-
unteer Coordinator Jean
Harvey. "Hopefully extend-
ing the drop-off dates will
provide more needed items
for the seniors."
This Easter season marks
the first time RSVP has
asked for donations concern-
ing senior Easter baskets.
Donations can be dropped off
at the Freeport community
center, The Walton County
Council on Aging or the
South Walton Senior Center
in Santa Rosa Beach. Items
needed include any type of
canned goods, juices, sugar-
free items, toiletries and pet
food.
One organization eager to


participate in the drive is the
Walton County Sheriffs of-
fice.
"The officers and employ-
ees of the Sheriffs office are
anxious and willing to help
the citizens in Walton
County," said Walton County
Sheriffs Office Community
Relations Coordinator Anna
LaCour. "The Sheriffs de-
partment looks forward to
participating in all commu-
nity activities."
"We are very grateful of
the entire staff at the
Sheriffs department for par-
ticipating in this program,"
said Harvey.
Citizen's wanting to make
a donation but are unable to
access one of the drop-off site
can call the RSVP office for
assistance. "If people can not
get to a donation point we
will come and get it," said
Harvey.

nation call Harvey at

and his soldiers confront the
Persians at a mountain pass
called Thermopylae ("hot
gates" in Greek), the only ac-
cess to the Greek mainland,
and hunker down. And that's
the movie.
If you know history, you
know what happens. If you
know physics, you've heard of
the phenomenon of the un-
stoppable force meeting the
immovable object.
Xerxes sends all he's got
against the little band regu-
lar troops, his elite "Immor-
tal" guard, elephants, a rhi-
noceros, even a CGI giant. In
return, he takes nothing but
massive casualties and a lot


of guff from Leonidas and his
wisecracking warriors. It be-
gins to resemble an ultra-vio-
lent "Roadrunner" cartoon,
with Xerxes in the role of
Wyle E. Coyote.
Of course, no movie as
darkly-lit as this can have
anything but a bittersweet
ending. The heroic Spartans
do their best, and serve as an
inspiration to their country-
men. I
Historically, most Greeks
were only too happy to let the
Spartans take the brunt of
any fighting that came their
way. If you read any of the
literature of that time, you'll
know that the Greeks, espe-


cially the Athenians, thought
the Spartans were matchless
fighters, but not quite right
in the head.
Could be. Still, "300" offers
a straight-up action/adven-
ture story, full of nobility,
treachery, glory, and sixpack
abs. It's like your favorite
Hercules movie, with a bit of
"Gladiator" and "Spartacus"
thrown in to class it up. Par-
ents, get a sitter for the kids.
Wives and girlfriends, this
will test your love. Guys,
since this is loosely based on
history, just say it's educa-
tional. Like "Masterpiece
Theatre" with blunt-force
trauma.


'An Evening with Birds'


presented by the SWCC


Some of the mysteries of
area wild birds will be solved
Thursday, March 22, when
the South Walton Commu-
nity Council presents "An
Evening With Birds," a pro-
gram of the Choctawhatchee
Audubon Society.
How to identify birds by
feather color, feeding habits
and some migration patterns
will be explained by local
birding authority Thelma
Phillips, CAS vice president
and program chairman.
The program, which is one
in the SWCC series of public


forums, begins at 7 p.m. in
the Coastal Branch Library
meeting room .and is open to
the public at no charge.
Colorful powerpoint slides
and some bird songs will help
illustrate the examples of lo-
cal bird life, and Phillips will
be available to answer audi-
ence questions. In addition
to her CAS role, she teaches
"Bird Watching for Casual
Observers" at the University
of West Florida center, is a
vice president of the Gulf
Area Garden Club, and is
past president of the Fort


Walton Beach Woman's
Club. Other interests are ge-
nealogy and Gem and Min-
eral Society participation.
SWCC invites residents
and visitors to enjoy this en-
tertaining and educational
evening. Refreshments will
be served.
For more information, call
Ella Caro, 231-6038.

THE D-F--N--K-SPRINGS-HERALD---THURSDAY--MARCH-15,-2007-P AG


Like the musical
"The Sound of Mu-
sic" the variety of
musical sounds can
be heard from every
hilltop and shoreline
over the next few
weeks. Any musical
taste can be found
with most perfor-
mance venues just a
few miles from
home.

March and April not only
bring around more tolerable
temperatures and out-of-
state tourists, also present a
plethora of entertainment.
Ranging from Zydeco and
Blues, to smooth jazz and
rock, food for the ear is served
up just as you like it.

As usual, the resort towns


roll out the red carpet and
welcome shoppers to their
facilities everyday, but with
March arriving and spring in
the air, outdoor events are
another reason to take the
trip.

Both Baytowne Wharf and
the Market Shops at
Sandestin are once again of-
fering their evening concerts
in the park.
At Baytowne Wharf,
Wednesday evenings from 6-
8 p.m., a variety of music can
be heard at the events plaza.
Just across the street and a
tram car ride over, the Mar-
ket Shops present their Sat-
urday evening concerts in the
park. The next performance
is Blues By The Beach with
the Blue Man preforming
from 5-7 p.m.
In Pensacola, there is no
shortage of tunes to be heard.
From culture pop to the pop
classics, the city has much to
offer.


Christian music perfor-
mances, including Mark
Harris on March 22 and the
Gaither Vocal Band on
March 23 at the Pensacola
Civic Center, will bring lov-
ers of contemporary gospel
music to the city. For those
wanting a more rock edge, a
rare solo performance by
Aaron Lewis of the group
Staind, performs at the
Saenger Theatre on March
23.
Alternative rock lovers will
get a dose of My Chemical


Romance on April 18 at the
civic center.
Back along the Walton/
Okaloosa stretch of Hwy. 98,
the musical sounds will be
flowing from every open door
of the hot spots, the theaters
and the concert venues for
the next month.

Rock n' roll fans, especially
those who grew up in the 70s,
will flock to The Block in Fort
Walton Beach for the April 5
concert to hear Foghat in con-
cert. Those with a little more


love of country sounds can
get a chance to kick up their
heels with the high-fidelity
honky-tonk sounds of the
Modern Eldorados, perform-
ing at the Harbor Grill on
March in Destin.

From hard-hitting bass
guitars, to smooth flowing,
easy-relaxing music, smooth
jazz takes over the Emerald
Coast.
The eclecticjazzy sounds of
Willie & Lobo return to Hog's
Breath on March 15 and 16
for two performances. The
duo is world-renowned for its
balance and its allure of the
smooth jazz genre.
But if you are looking for
the ultimate in smooth jazz
music that includes a host
of Grammy award-winning
smooth jazz artists, then Gulf
Place is theplace to be April
13-15 as the 2007 Seabreeze
Jazz Festival settles back in
to the resort community for
three days of non-stop


smooth jazz.
More than 10,000 ticket-
holders will come through
the gates as artists such as
Jonathon Butler, Gerald
Albright, Steve Oliver, Kirk
Whalum, Down to the Bone,
Peter White, Rick Braun,
Boney James and Mindi
Abair, just to name a few. Fes-
tival-goers from all across
the world make their vaca-
tion plans to attend, and
have made this smooth jazz
festival the largest event in
Walton County and the sec-
ond largest smooth jazz fes-
tival in the world.

With the month of March
and April so consumed in the
music scene, there is no ex-
cuse why anyone could not
get their ears full. Anything
and everything musical can
be found over the next six to
. eight weeks, so all that is left
to do for you, is just show up,
sit back and get consumed by
the tunes.

FROM FRONT


to inflict that on others. This type of governance is a loss
of freedoms. Baby steps that is how we are robbed of our
freedoms. This will come to a neighborhood near you. Do
you want or need government telling you what color to paint
your property?
The ordinance is another obvious attempt to incremen-
tally remove/reduce property rights, Kramer continued. Now
it's the scenic corridor one day in the near future it
may well bb the scenic Walton County ordinance and
government may be telling you what color you can paint your
home and what color clothes you can wear. When did code
enforcement become the fashion police?"
Commissioner Tom Terrell said, "For the most part I agree
with what Mr. Kramer just said. I can understand the ne-
cessity for maintaining the scenic corridor appearance and
everything, but when you are dealing with private property
rights, I think this is a foundational mark. This is a little too
much government control over private property. The over-
riding factor is less government and we are doing nothing
but adding more government. You are placing the full man-
date upon a group of individuals as to what they think is
acceptable coloration."

Tom Patton disagreed saying some people have bad.taste.
"There is a fantastic potential to abuse our scenic corridor.
The time to keep it in check is before the application comes
in. I think senme moderation on color is highly desirable. All
this is doing is clarifying the intent of the ordinance and
buttoning up a major loophole. If we ask the review board to
work out a range of parameters that is not totally subjec-

tive, and provide guidelines to enforce, rather than inter-
pret, it would be preferable."
Commissioner Gardner echoed the comments of others
without fully endorsing one side or the other. "One of the
problems I have with this is there is'.not a code, it is a gen-
eral color concept left to the review board.'I'm colorblind and
I would still question some people's tastes," he said. .,
Planning director Pat Blackshear said,"Perhap-s the-words-i

extreme and that is what they (the design review board)

Sally Merrifeld said, "We have to be careful about this.
Often people who have trademarks or franchises do not have
a choice on colors."
Commissioner Terrell moved to continue the ordinance
until the next meeting, while Kramer said he intended to
offer some suggestions that would not infringe on the rights
on citizens. The motion was passed by all:


Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services Commis-
sioner Charles H. Bronson is
launching a spring program
aimed at combating child-
hood obesity, an increasing
health concern among young
people. What better way to
tackle the problem than to
teach kids how to prepare
their own healthful snacks.
Bronson is kicking off the
third annual "Xtreme Cui-
sine Cooking School" in
March and classes will con-
tinue until April to coincide
with the end of the school
year.
"Students on summer
break often have more lei-
sure time and less adult su-
pervision than they do dur-
ing the school year," Bronson
said. "
Consequently, they will


choose many of their own
meals and snacks. If these
snacks are low in nutrition
and fiber and high in salt,
sugar, and fats they can
contribute to the growing
problem of childhood obesity.
We want our children to
learn healthful alternatives
that will continue into adult-
hood."
Xtreme Cuisine Cooking
School" teaches Florida stu-
dents how to make their own
healthy snacks using "Fresh
from Florida" fruits and veg-
etables, whole grains, lean
meats, and other nourishing
recipe ingredients.
Classes are being held at
middle schools in Pinellas
Park, Miami, Ocala and Tal-
lahassee. In Tallahassee, a
class will be held on March
14 at Florida High Middle


School. Award-winning Ex-
ecutive Chef Justin Timineri
will teach students the basics
of food'preparation and cook-
ing procedures while creating
fruit parfaits, whole-wheat
pizzas, and other easy-to-pre-
pare snacks.

Students learn how the
Florida fruit and vegetables
used in these recipes provide
vitamins and minerals that
can help prevent heart dis-
ease and other obesity-re-
lated illnesses. In addition,
students learn the dangers
caused by excessive amounts
of salt, sugar and fats in their
diet, and how fiber could
eliminate their desire for
high-calorie, low-nutrition
snack foods. Each "Xtreme
Cuisine" curriculum packet
contains four original recipes


with nutritional break-
downs.
By the end of each session,
students learn the daily re-
quirements for calories,
fruits and vegetables. They
also learn the basic food
groups. Each student re-
ceives a copy of the "Fresh
from Florida Kids' Kitchen"
cookbook, which outlines
many cooking basics. Stu-
dents also receive "Xtreme
Cuisine" certificates attest-
ing to their skill in the prepa-
ration of healthy snacks.
"We hope that once these
young people learn this vital
information, they can pass it
on to their friends and even
family members," Bronson
said. "We have to take steps
early to ensure they make
good food choices throughout
their lifetime."


OWC Dance Facets production


An eclectic array of musi-
cal styles, including David
Bowie, Cesare Pugni and a
live performance by the
Okaloosa-Walton College
Madrigal Singers, will all
lend inspiration for the origi-
nal choreography presented
by OWC's dance students
and faculty in Dance Facets
2007, on April 20 and 21, at
7:30 p.m. at The Arts Center
at OWC in Niceville.
In this year's annual pre-
sentation, 28 dancers will
perform eight original dance


presentations featuring: ro-
mantic ballet, modern, con-
temporary ballet, jazz, tap
and old school funky jazz.
The visual and audible
movement on stage will be
enhanced by special lighting
effects designed by OWC stu-
dents and faculty. The syn-
ergistic effect of dramatic
music, ethereal lighting and
emotional dance culminates
to present artistic interpre-
tations about social realities
as well as light-hearted
children's fantasies.


Dance Facets 2007 tickets
are now available for $15
adults and $10 youth. All pro-
ceeds from this year's event
will go to support the Frances
Smith Herron Dance Studio
Endowment. The endowment
will name the OWC Dance
Studio in memory of the late
Frances Herron, an OWC
dance instructor who passed
away in August 2006, and
will also fund dance scholar-
ships, distinguished visiting
artists and will enhance fu-
tuir l);ince Facets produc-


tions.
To purchase tickets, call
The Arts Center box office at
729-6000 or stop by Monday
through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4
p.m.
