IF YOU HAD THE WINGS OF AN ANGEL, this would be your view of the new Walton
County Justice Facility, opening soon.



Get Into Jail Free


Open house at new


justice facility


The new justice facility in
DeFuniak Springs is nearly
completed and ready for op-
eration.
The Walton County Board
of Commissioners and Sher-
iff Ralph Johnson will host
an open house for the general
public at the new Walton
County Justice Facility on
Saturday, March 24 from
noon 4 p.m. Dedication
and ribbon-cutting ceremo-


nies will be held at noon in
front of the Jail Administra-
tion Building.
Following the ceremony,
guests will be able to tour the
facilities in the complex. De-
partment of Corrections staff

Paxton council adopts


impact fee ordinance


By REID TUCKER
The Paxton Town Coucil
had a busy night March 13,
filled with various presenta-
tions and petitions.The coun-
cil took care of pressing busi-
ness, mainly the adoption of
Ordinace 07-02, dealing with
impact fees within the city.
The council also adopted
the Walton County nuisance
policies, as the city's lack of
an ordinance has recently
been made plain by several
complaints of eyesores on
city property. Action can now
begin to correct some of these
problems.
Bill Vorwald, assistant to
the Supervisor of Elections,
made a succint presentation
on the new 'Vote in Honor of'
a Veteran' program. This new
program is intended to en-
courage greater voter partici-
pation by allowing Walton
county voters- to recognize
the sacrifice of local veterans.
Vorwald said the purpose is
to "honor those who allow us
to meet together and vote."
The free, voluntary program
has been promised to extend
to southern Walton County if
it catches on in the north end.
The rest of the evening was
spent hearing from local citi-
zens on a wide variety of top-


ics.
One attendee, Kathy Par-
tridge, brought several items
before the council, including
possibly opening the Paxton
city dump on Saturdays to
accommodate working indi-
viduals, and suggested alter-
native means of notifying
residents of services provided
free by the city.
The council also heard
from Charles Smith, who
proposed an interlocal agree-
ment with Walton County in
regards to the sewer system
for his proposed 75 home de-
velopment. Councilman Bill
McRae said that it would be
best in this regard to wait
and see what legal ramifica-
tions could result from this
before the council came to a
decision. Only a few weeks
ago, the council met with
representatives from Laurel
Hill to discuss this very sub-
ject, with the two municipali-
ties agreeing to investigate
the feasibility of such a rela-
tionship.
Tim Seay brought a report
on the current state of the
Paxton Pee-Wee Football
field. Seay said of the aid that
his group has received, "the
county's generosity is stag-
gering." He reports that the


county has provided sod and
turf for the fields, stands/
bleachers, and other
necessities, though he said
there has been no word on
whether restroom facilities
will be provided. Seay said
that all these things "still
won't use all the money" that
they have been located as
part of this program.
The council also heard
from Kelly Rowe, a resident
who wished to rent space on
some city property south of
the Walton County Sheriff's
Substation. Her plan was to
use the space to create an
open-air flea market, the
only flea market in the neigh-
boring areas. The council
was generally not supportive
of this proposition, not be-
cause of its concept, but
rather on the proposed loca-
tion and the materials used
for vendors: just off densely-
packed U.S. 331. Also, coun-
cilman McRae expressed con-
cern over the operational
time of this flea market,
which would land in the
middle of hurricane season,
further compounding the
need for a better location.
The council didn't dissallow

Freeport to


regulate use of


palm trees


By BEN GRAFTON
The Freeport City Council
meeting of March 13 in-
cluded a lively discussion
about the use of palm trees
in the city. Mayor Mickey
Marse commented that after
a news article was published,
phone calls came in from all
over and the majority were
in favor of banning palm
trees. Marse said only two
calls were received that were
negative.
Councilman Earl King.
voiced what seemed to be the
council's position when he
said "Palms are okay for in-
terior accents but should not
be used in parking lots, com-
munity buffers and similar
applications.".
Buell Cobb of the Owl's
Head development, said that
they do not disagree with the
council's sentiment on palms.
He said that initially Owl's
Head put in some palms and
then realized a mistake in
landscaping had been made
and the palms were removed.
He said that the develop-
ment would still like the flex-
ibility to use palms for ac-
cents in appropriate interior
areas.. .
The Council agreed that
the correct way to handle the
use of palms would be to add
appropriate language to the
land development code. City
Planner Latilda Henninger
advised the council that an
amendment to the code could
not be ready for at least two
months. The council then
authorized the city attorney,


Clayton Adkinson, to develop:
an appropriate resolution to
cover the situation until the
code amendment is ready.'
In other business,
Henninger reported back to
the council about the current;
status of applications for an-
nexation to the city submit-:
ted by land owners. The,
greatest number of these are:
for parcels of land on both.
sides of U.S. 331 South in the'
vicinity of Ramsey Branch'
and on both sides of
LaGrange Road at its inter-
section with U.S. 331. The
council authorized the city
attorney to start annexation
procedures on applications
submitted by JLAB,
Creekwood Lands,
RAMPAR, Watson, Marr-
Connart, and Ramsey Creek.
Applications submitted by
Robbins, Chambers, Walters,
Reed and Shortridge, all
along U.S. 331, will be tabled-
because enclaves would be
created by bringing these
tracts into the city at this
time.
In addition to the proper-
ties noted above, applications
have also been submitted for
two parcels on west Bay Loop
Road.
The council approved a
resolution which revises the
lee schedule for processing
applications for building per-
mits. The new schedule will
require additional fees for
plan revisions after the first

Walton County


clerk hires


internal auditor


By DOTTY NIST
County officials and com-
munity members say they
welcome the increased over-
sight of county policies and
procedures that Walton
County's newly-hired inter-
nal auditor will be tasked
with providing.
Martha Ingle, Walton
County clerk of courts,
proudly announced the hir-
ing on March 13 at the out-
set of the county commission


William Pennington,
Ingle's finance director, ex-
plained that Street will be
tasked with examining the
various procedures and con-
trols within county govern-
ment and with making any
necessary recommendations
'for improvement. One ex-
ample might be reviewing
county collection procedures
to verify whether the
amounts collected are cor-
rect, he noted.


"It's just a natural progres-
sion for a growing county," said'
William Pennington, finance director for the Walton
County Clerk of Courts.


regular meeting.
The internal auditor,
Johnny Street, will report to
Ingle upon beginning work
on April 23.
Since 2000, Street has
served as senior tax revenue
auditor for the Polk County
Clerk of Courts in south
Florida. Street has a
bachelor's degree from East
Tennessee State University
in business administration.
Prior to his employment with
Polk County, he served for 10
years as senior internal au-
ditor for the Brevard County
clerk of courts.


Pennington said Street
will also look at ways to im-
prove efficiency and will look
at state, federal and county
regulations to determine
whether Walton County is in
compliance with those regu-
lations.
He said the clerk's office
had previously planned to
hire an internal auditorin

Association (WCTA) urged
the county to include the po-
sition in the 2007 budget, the

Legislature working on


vehicle registration reform ''Copyrighted Material


By BRUCE COLLIER
Marvin Cleveland is not
happy with the state of the
law, at least insofar as it per-
tains to the vehicle registra-
tion system.
The DeFuniak Springs
resident duly registered his
vehicle last September, and
paid the set fee. This bought
him a"year's" legal registra-
tion. Unfortunately, by state
law, that expired the follow-
ing February, less than six
months later. On March 9, a
Florida Highway Patrol


On March 15 at'around
midnight, a DeFuniak
Springs Police (DFSPD) pa-
trol officer conducted a traf-
fic stop on Interstate 10 (I-
10), near the DeFuniak
Springs exit (Exit 85). The
officer stopped a 1997 Ford
Taurus traveling west on I-
10 at a high rate of speed.
The driver, Sterling A. Scott,
was later arrested after the
officer located 120 grams of
cannabis concealed in the ve-
hicle.
A Walton County Sheriff's


trooper stopped him and
cited him for an expired tag.
He has an April date in Wal-
ton County Court, and he
can't help feeling he has been
unfairly treated.
"I think it's wrong, ripping
off the taxpayer," he said.
Cory Godwin, chief deputy
tax collector for Walton
County, expressed sympathy
for Cleveland, saying that
the present system can be
"confusing and complicated,"
adding that he couldn't see
why the state can't pro-rate
the fees. Godwin said that


Office K-9 unit deputy ar-
rived to assist the officer who
had originally stopped the
vehicle. The cannabis had
been divided into four sepa-
rate bags, consistent with in-
tended distribution. The of-
ficer noticed a "large knife"
near Scott. Also found hidden-
in the car was $2,500 in cash.
Both the money and the
vehicle were seized as a re-
sult of the investigation.
Scott, who carried an Indi-
ana driver's license, claimed
to reside in Jacksonville, and


the tax collector's office
doesn't get many complaints
like Cleveland's, but noted
that help seems to be on the
way.
H.B. 275, currently mak-
ing its way through both
houses of the Florida legisla-
ture, would revamp the sys-
tem. The bill, which is still
in various committees and
not yet law, would establish
an "extended registration pe-
riod" of 24 months, during
which motor vehicle and mo-
tor home registrations would
be valid. The proposed bill


said he was traveling to
Pensacola. Scott was
charged with possession of
over 20 grams of cannabis,
with intent to distribute, and
with transportation of drug
paraphernalia.
DFSPD officials noted
that this was the second
"substantial" illegal drug
case in the area in less than
a week. The first was a large
heroin arrest yielding over
$80, 000 worth of that drug,
on March 12. Investigators
in that case learned that the


also contains language on li-
cense plates and other mat-
ters.
Godwin said that the bill
seems to be moving swiftly
through committees, indicat-
ing wide support among
state legislators. If passed
and signed by the governor,
the new law, however
worded, would take effect on
January 1, 2008.
However, this won't be
much help to Marvin Cleve-
land, whose case will be dis-
posed of next month.


heroin had come from Texas
and was reportedly intended
for distribution in Walton
County.
In that case the two sus-
pects arrested were also
charged with possession of
cocaine and cannabis. How-
ever, there is no indication
that Scott was intending to
distribute his cannabis lo-
cally.
Scott is in custody in the
Walton County Department
of Corrections facility in De-
Funiak Springs.

commissioners agreed and
the clerk's office proceeded to
hire the internal auditor, he
explained.
"We really look forward to
this," commented Alan
Powdermaker, financial co-
chair of the community-
based organization.
Powdermaker said the
WCTA has been requesting
the addition of an internal
auditor for several of years.
He added that he believes
that the auditor's $58,480
yearly salary will be money
well spent, and that anytime
oversight of county spending
is increased, taxpayers ben-
efit.
"We're hoping to see much
more controlled spending in
the future," Powdermaker
said.

Dan Scupin, Powder-
maker's co-chair, said that
the reports prepared by the
internal auditor will be "criti-
cal" and that it will be impor-
tant for the county to follow
up on his recommendations.
Scupin said it was his
hope that the auditor would
emphasize oversight of "how
things work" within the
county departments with an
eye to efficiency.
Pennington emphasized
the importance of seeing that
Walton County government
is in legal compliance with
regard to its policies and pro-
cedures. He noted that the
state's larger counties have
internal audit departments.
"It's just a natural pro-
gression for a growing
county," he said of the
county's move to hire an in-
ternal auditor.
Pennington will be assist-
ing with setting up opera-
tional guidelines for the in-
ternal auditor. He said plans
are for staff to be added to
assist the auditor if and
when needed.
"We're really happy that
Walton County is growing
and that we were able to se-
cure the expertise to make,
this department as excellent
as possible," Pennington con-
cluded.

It's time to say goodbye to
an old friend. DeFuniak
Springs City Councilman
Mark Anderson has made
the decision to not run for
another term. I, for one, will
miss him. Not because we al-
ways agreed on city issues,
because we didn't, but be-
cause Mark Anderson repre-
sents something that is in-
creasingly rare in politics -
an honest man. In all the 20
years he has served on the
council, I never once heard
a whisper of scandal or
wrongdoing. Not only that, I
have never heard him say a
harsh word about anyone,
even about a few characters
who might have actually
merited such remarks.
In the often wicked world
of politics, that kind of record
is almost unheard of, espe-
cially for someone elected 10
times in a row. Anderson
made it look easy because he
is one of those truly rare fel-
lows a perennial nice guy
who didn't finish last.
Another principle, scarce
in politics, is that Anderson
has never believed in wast-
ing money. In fact, he'd be
the first to object to anything
he deemed wasteful or un-
necessary. Try to find just
one person with the same-
qualities within a hundred
miles ofWashington, D.C. Go
ahead, I dare you.
Even Anderson's reasons
for leaving the council are
honorable. He wants to
spend more time with his
family, including his parents,
whom I've known since I was
wearing short pants. If you
know D.L. and Thelma
Anderson, then you know
the apple didn't fall far from
the tree. I think we owe
Mark Anderson a debt of
gratitude for serving us
faithfully and with integrity
for so long and so well.
Which brings me to the
fellow that will now occupy


Anderson's seat on the coun-
cil. Since only one person
qualified to run for the job,
when qualifying time ended,
he had the job without'actu-
ally having to run. In most
cases, that would probably be
a disaster. Luckily for us, the
one man to qualify was
Henry Ennis.
Ennis is best recognized
as the court security officer
for the Walton County Court-
house. He's also spent the
last 19 years on the DeFu-
niak Springs Planning Com-
mission, first appointed by
A.O. Campbell and then by
Mark Anderson himself.
Ennis is also a man of genu-
ine integrity and I don't ex-
pect to be disappointed by
his performance as a city
councilman.
Mayor Harold Carpenter
was also returned to office
unopposed and, after my edi-
torial a fewweeks ago, I was
pleasantly surprised to see
the council quickly agree to
give him the authority to
take a more active role in the
city's administration. Be-
cause I know Mayor Carpen-
ter to be a man of principle
and integrity, this bodes well
for the city's future...
I anticipate seeing some
much-needed changes in di-
rection. With so much at
stake now, DeFuniak
Springs can ill afford a mis-
step and even less afford to
decline to correct some' mis-
takes that have been made
over the last couple of years.
In short, because of all the
people named here, I have
high hopes for the future of
DeFuniak Springs.
In the words of writer Leo
Rosten, "I think the purpose
of life is to be useful, to be
responsible, to be honorable,
to be compassionate. It is,
after all, to matter, to count,
to stand for something, to
have made some difference
that you lived at all."


Editor:
Could someone please explain to me why piles of busted
up cross-ties are allowed to litter the side of Hwy. 90 indefi-
nitely while honest business owners trying to advertise their
businesses get slapped with code enforcement violations?

Editor:
I don't always agree with Ron Kelly but his editorial (Am-
nesty for Criminals) on March 15,2007 was right on. I would
like to add an excerpt from Andy Rooney from 60 Minutes, it
makes a great point.
"Guns do not make you a killer. Killing makes you a killer.
You can kill someone with a baseball bat or a car, but no one
is trying to ban you from driving to the ball game.
"I believe they are called the Boy Scouts for a reason, that
is why there are no girls allowed. Girls belong in the Girl
Scouts. Are you listening Martha Burke?
"I think that if you feel homosexuality is wrong, it is not a
phobia, it is an opinion. I have the right not to be tolerant of
others because they are different, weird, or tick me off.
"I believe that if you are selling me a milkshake, a news-
paper or a hotel room, you must do it in English! As a matter
of fact, if you want to be an American citizen, you should
have to speak English! "My father and grandfather didn't
die in vain so you can leave the countries you were born in
to come over and disrespect ours. I think the police should
have every right to shoot your sorry back side if you threaten
them after they tell you to stop. If you can't understand the
word "freeze" or "stop" in English, see the above lines. I don't
think just because you were not born in this country, you are
qualified for any special loan programs, government spon-.
sored bank loans or tax breaks, etc., so you can open a hotel,
coffee shop, trinket store, or any other business.
"We did not go to the aid of certain foreign countries and
risk our lives in wars to defend their freedoms, so that de-
cades later they could come over here and tell us our consti-
tution is a living document; and open to their interpreta-
tions.
"I think Bill Gates has every right to keep every penny he
made and continue to make more. If it ticks you off, go and
invent the next operating system that's better, and put your
name on the building. "It doesn't take a whole village to
raise a child right, but it does take a parent to stand up to
the kid; and smack their little behinds when necessary, and
say "NO.",
"I am proud to be an American. My heritage is Italian,
and I don't go around saying I'm an Italian-American. I'm
an American, do away with 'political correctness.'
"Our pledge says 'I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United
States of America, and to the republic, for which it stands,
one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice
for all!" Put God back in America, go Andy!

Editor,
I would like to begin by thanking the management and
staff of the DeFuniak Herald for allowing me to provide this
important information to the public. The Herald's solid repu-
tation for supporting public education and other valued in-
stitutions, by providing a forum for accurate, unbiased dia-
logue on timely issues, is well known and justly deserved.
On May 15, 2007, Walton County will hold a special elec-
tion to vote on the continuation of the half mill for operating
expenditures of the Walton County School District. I would
like to ask you to vote 'yes' on this important measure, as
you did by more than a 2-to-1 margin in 2003.
If you vote 'yes' on May 15, and this measure is approved,
your taxes will not increase one cent as a result. Four years
ago, in June 2003, we asked you to allow us to put money
where it is needed most the operating budget without
raising taxes. We outlined a plan in which we asked you to
vote in favor of a one-half mill increase in operating millage,
which we would "swap out" by lowering capital projects mill-
age by an equal amount. There would be no tax increase.
Immediately following your overwhelming approval of this
plan at the polls, the school board upheld its part of the bar-
gain by adopting a formal resolution that reduced the capi-
tal projects millage by the same half mill that we increased
the operating millage by. That reduce millage has been in
effect for each of the last four years. We kept our bargain not
to increase your taxes, and we will do it again.
I would like to share with you some of the results you have
made possible by giving us-the flexibility to put tax dollars
to best use.
The Walton County School District is now an A+ Florida
school district. Ninety-two percent of the schools in our dis-
trict are graded as either 'A' or 'B' schools.
The school district recently became of the first districts in
the nation to become fully accredited under the new ac-
creditation standards.
The accreditation report, issued by the prestigious South-
ern Association of Colleges and Schools, specifically com-
mended the school district for "responsible stewardship of
the half mill referendum funds invested in quality educa-
tion."
We promise to use a portion of these funds to provide com-
petitive salaries and benefits in order to attract and retain
well-qualified teachers and other personnel. Thanks to your
support, we have made great strides in this area.
While many school districts have had to cut back things
they regarded as enriching but not essential, through your
support, we have not only maintained but improved funding
for special programs and activities (reading and mathemat-
ics programs, the gifted students program, music and art
programs, and athletic and academic competitions), provided
up-to-date instructional and technology-related equipment
and materials, and fully funded our safe schools program
(school resource officers).
The funding program for public education is much too com-
plex to describe fully in a letter. However, I would be glad to
answer any questions you might have. Please call me at 850-
892-1100.
In closing, let me first thank you for your support of this
measure in 2003, and for all you do for the Walton County
School District. The children, our students, are the real win-
ners. All who work for and believe in public education are
grateful to you for your efforts. And secondly, please vote
'yes' on May 15
Carlene H. Anderson
Superintendent of Schools

Paxton Bobcat Alumni Associaion to

discuss alterations in Bobcat mascot


By REID TUCKER
The Paxton Bobcat Alumni
Association will hold their
monthly meeting on April 19.
The main topic under discus-
sion, the percieved decision
to alter the image of the ven-
erable bobcat, longtime insig-
nia of PHS.
The alumni association,
unavailable for comment,
nevertheless made known
their feelings as to the
changes rendered the bobcat
image through association
member Tom Thompson. He
appeared before the Paxton
town council last Tuesday in
protest of these changes.
Councilwoman Anne Sex-
ton, who is also the assistant
softball coach at PHS, spoke
in defense of what she
referred to as a minor alter-
ation.
In terms of actual changes,
the new insignia is a profile
view of the mascot, the same
one used by the sports pro-
gram of the Texas State Bob-
cats. This particular stylized
profile view was given by
'Walton County officials to
the PHS athletic director
Laurie Gilbert, along with
several others for her consid-
eration.
Gilbert, additionally the


PAXTON
any further thought on the
matter, they merely post-
poned any immediate deci-
sion.
Finally, the council heard
from one of its own, former
Paxton Town Councilman
Tom Thompson. Thompson
spoke in regard to the contro-
versy surrounding the alter-
ation of the Paxton high
school logo to a more stylized
interpretation of the tradi-
tional 'bobcat' insignia. The
council said they were unable
to provide Thomp~gd with
,the results he wanted, as.
they have.no .direct, control


head coach of the softball
team, said that the senior
members of the varsity pro-
gram picked out the new pro-
file view of the cat, as op-
posed to the frontal cat face
that usually appears around
the campus. The real trouble,
Gilbert said, comes from
these alterations coupled
with the use of navy blue as
an accent color, an addition
that Thompson claims is
part of an attempt to change
the mascot and school colors
altogether, an allegation Gil-
bert was quick to deny.
Gilbert simply said, "It's
nothing new. We're still the
Bobcats, and we always will
be." Navy blue, Gilbert said,
was introduced in the late
1980s on basketball and
baseball uniforms and con-
tinues in use today. A profile
view of the Bobcat was also
used on the yearbook cover
of the 1990 edition. The chief
reason that the new view of
the cat was chosen, Gilbert
said, was due to its simplis-
tic, streamlined appearance.
She said it "wouldn't look
busy."
Plans for the new gym at
Paxton also called for the
implementation of the Bob-
cat image on the center court.


FROM FRONT
over what Paxton high school
does in regard to its mascot.
They decided to await more
information before coming to


Gilbert said that the new
profile view would work ide-
ally in this location due to its
pared down appearance.
"Ease of maintenance was a
major concern to us," she
said, as compared to the tra-
ditional frontal design. How-
ever, when PHS Principal
Mike Anderson brought the
decision. before the faculty
and staff, they opted for the
more traditional frontal view
of the mascot on the gym
floor.
As to the new uniforms,
Anderson approved the new
designs, blue accenting and
all. Gilbert, who taught at
Freeport high school for sev-
eral years in the past, said
that the main issue was that
the softball team have new
uniforms, as they had not
had new uniforms in six
years, not what was actually
on them. She further com-
pared the situation to Free-
port high school and Walton
high school, both of whom
use several different views of
their sports mascots. She
said in that whatever stylis-
tic changes took place, Pax-
ton would "always be red and
white."
Gilbert likens the public's
reaction to misinformation


any decision on the matter,'
though Thompson assured
them that there was a role for
them to play in the process.

and misunderstanding: the
baseball team capitalized on
the new profile view on their
team sweatshirts, which
were presold to various indi-
viduals as part of a fund rais-
ing program. The actual soft-
ball/baseball uniforms came
in before the sweatshirts,
but due to the controversy, no
more examples of the
sweatshirts will be ordered.
"These are the trials and
tribulations of growing," Gil-
bert said. "Some are not al-
ways in favor of change."
Principal Anderson said
that the school would mini-
mize the logo itself for the re-
mainder of the school year.
The faculty and staff will
maintain a policy of "zero ex-
posure outside of the sports
uniforms themselves, which
were already approved and
could not be returned,"
Anderson said.

Alumni association Phil
Anderson and Principal
Anderson have met on this
topic several times, and the


former is expected to discuss
these developments at length
at the next alumni associa-
tion meeting.

the vicinity of $250,000 to

would be more cost-effective
to tear down the building and
erect a new one on the site.
The council suggested that a
new building with a front fa-

ing should be acceptable.
Marse said he will discuss
the situation with the Free-

WC Commissioners meet with congregational delegation in Washington


Walton County Commis-
sioners and county adminis-
trator Ronnie Bell went to
Washington, DC the week of
March 5 to meet with the
county's congressional del-
egation. They also attended
the National Association of
Counties Legislative Confer-
ence while in Washington.
Meetings with the congres-
sional delegation and their
staffs focused on Walton's
federal legislative initiatives
approved on Jan. 23. Those
initiatives are: Four-laning
of U.S. 331 and the
Choctawhatchee Bay Bridge,
and a wastewater treatment
plant project in Mossy Head.


Also requested are a mo-
bile health unit to be oper-
ated by the Walton County
Health Department, and an
environmental assessment
and mapping project of
Walton's coastal dune lakes.
The county's federal lobby-
ists with The Ferguson
Group helped arrange the
meetings. Productive ses-
sions were held with Con-
gressmen Jeff Miller and
Allen Boyd, and Senators
Bill Nelson and Mel
Martinez. The commission-
ers were joined in some of
these meetings by Dawn
Moliterno and Mike Lawson
representing the private sec-


tor through the Walton
County Chamber of Com-
merce. The legislators were
made aware of the extent of
Walton County's commit-
ment and local effort to date
on all of the issues on the
agenda.
The National Association
of Counties conference pre-
sented a number of topics
pertinent to Walton County.
These included wetlands
rules and regulations, deliv-
ery of health care services,
federal highway and transit
programs, federal grant pro-
grams and initiatives for
homeland security, prospects
for comprehensive immigra-


tion reform, and various leg-
islative proposals that Con-
gress has enacted since Hur-
ricane Katrina. The commis-
sioners also heard remarks
from presidential candidates
John McCain (R, Arizona)
and Joe Biden (D, Delaware).
Participation in the legis-



,


lative conference strength-
ens Walton County commis-
sioners' understanding of
federal legislation that im-
pacts counties and local gov-
ernment. Commissioners
are able to have first hand
discussions with those mak-
ing rules and proposing leg-


isolation. Individual meet-
ings with our delegation and
their staffs in their offices
also help Walton County.
The likelihood of receiving
funding for projects is en-
hanced when legislators hear
about a project directly from
local elected officials.

March



Sgardning



tips

By DARA DOBSON
w WALTON COUNTY
MASTER GARDENER
It sure feels like spring outside! Most of us gardeners get
a bad case of spring fever each year at the beginning of
March. But remember that we can still have some late frosts.
.'., The first day of spring is March 20 and the official frost-free"
date is not until the end of March for our area. The old tim-
.. ers will say, "Beware, we always get a last minute cold snap
f right before Easter." So my advice is to hold off a little longer
before putting out those tender cold sensitive plants. Re-
member that most of the flowering plants that are seen at
al|P the stores right now were grown in greenhouses or down in
a warmer climate zone. Even though we are in zone 8, we
are zone 8a, which is the coldest region of Florida. There are
still cool-weather annuals on the market that will provide
color for another month or so before it gets too hot. If one

There are lots of things to do in the garden to rejuvenate
the old and prepare for the new additions. When your ca-
Imellias, azaleas and other early spring-flowering shrubs fin-
ish blooming, fertilize and prune them. Remember that regu-
Slar fertilizer often contains nitrate nitrogen that can dam-
age the roots of azaleas. Use a fertilizer marked for azaleas
1 and other acid-loving plants, usually 8-8-8 or 16-4-8.
It's time to remove dead foliage and fertilize palms and
sagos with special palm food that contains magnesium and
other nutrients they need. Rejuvenate liriope (monkey grass)
and Aztec grass by cutting with a mower on the highest set-
ting to trim off all the brown leaves. This can be done with
hand shears, too. After trimming, water and fertilize it to
stimulate fresh new growth.
It's time to pick up the dead branches and trim back dead
stems and dried seed heads left from winter. Rake away the
debris and add fresh mulch if needed and fertilize shrubs
and perennials. The latest research suggests using a slow
release fertilizer (12-4-8 or 16-4-8) saves time and is most
beneficial to plants. Amendments such as peat, compost or
CORAL HONEYSUCKLE-ONICERA SEMPERVIRENS. manure are always a good way to improve flower beds with-
out chemical fertilizers. Remember that mulch plays an im-
S-portant role in keeping the soil from drying out around plants
and helps control unwanted weeds. This is a great time to
reassess your landscape and replace some of those high
S. _maintenance plants with ones that require less work. Florida
S .. native plants require little or no fertilizer, withstand the
S ,humidity, are quite disease resistant and many are drought
tolerant.
It's time to plant bulbs of amaryllis, calla, canna, crocosmia,
S gladiolas, gloriosa lily, zephranthes and iris. Seeds to plant
include ageratum, amaranth, balsam, begonia, bergia,
celosia, cosmos, daisies, gomphrena, hibiscus, impatiens,
marigolds, thumbergia, vinca and zinnia.
A child's wagon is easier to maneuver than a wheelbar-
row. Garden kneeler pads and kneeler benches are great
helps and they have tools with padded grips that really make
it easier on one's hands. Use hand-lotion before working in
the garden. It helps keep the dirt from staining hands so
badly. For me, those stains are welcome sights because it
means spring is almost here and I am outside doing what I

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, MARCH22, 2007


Garden clut

annual natiz
The flush of Azalea blooms
have announced the arrival
of spring. March 20 was the
first official day of spring, but
no one needed a calendar to
tell that winter has gone. The
native dogwoods and redbud
trees are blossoming every-
where. Wisteria and sweet
olive trees have the bees
buzzing and the butterflies
fluttering. Cascades of coral
honeysuckle and yellow jas-
mine light up the landscape.
Now is a great time to
plant new plants, but be care-
ful with the cold-sensitive
annuals. There can still be a
late frost before Easter.
Florida native trees and
plants are wise choices for
gardeners who want a more
permanent, less labor-inten-
sive landscape. After they are
established, they usually re-
quire less water and are
more drought-tolerant than
many of the non-native
choices on the market today.
Native plants require little or
no fertilization and are very
disease resistant. Planting
those plants which are used
by birds, butterflies and
other wildlife will provide the
pleasure of watching those
creatures in one's own back-
yard. Planting more natives
will bring a bit of ecological
balance back to the small,
piece of the planet we care
for, replacing lost food and
habitat for pollinators and



DfS FTriends


5 to hold

ve plant safe
native wildlife of all kinds.
Rather than planting only
the limited plant varieties
the box stores offer each year,
choosing to plant natives
helps insure more
biodiversity.
The 4th Annual Native
Plant Sale and Education
Day will be held at the De-
Funiak Springs library Sat-
urday, March 24, from 8 a.m.
to noon. There will be over
1,200 plants. This year, there
will be several new species
and four types of native
ferns. Each plant will have
an information sign that will
help folk choose what is right
for their yard, with special
notes that will tell which
plants attract butterflies,
birds and supply food wild-
life. Florida native wild-
flower seeds and books will
be sold and free wildflower
posters and calendars will be
available. There will be edu-
cational displays on wild-
flowers, native trees and
Florida wetlands. Several
Walton County Master Gar-
deners will be there to an-
swer gardening questions
and distribute free educa-
tional material from IFAS.
All proceeds from this sale
are used to beautify histori-
cal DeFuniak Springs. For
more information, call Dara
Dobson at 859-0096 or Peggy
Caswell at 892-0624.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, MARCH 22, 2007


by DR. ROBERT M. JAYE
Thestory of the brothers,
Cain and Abel, is found in
Genesis 4:1-16. They seem to
be like the "two men went up
to worship, the one a Phari-
see, and the other a
publican." However, both of
these brothers had the same
privileges, opportunities, and
home life, yet they were so far
from being alike.
We have here self-will re-
jected. 4:5 teaches us that
unto Cain and his offering
the Lord had no respect. Cain
had to be acceptable himself
before his offering could be
accepted. His offering was
rejected because Cain him-
self was guilty. The way of


Cain was his own way (Jude
11).
We have here faith ac-
cepted. "The Lord had re-
spect unto Abel and his offer-
ing" (4:4). The reason is told
us in Hebrews 11:4, "By faith
Abel offered unto God a more
excellent sacrifice .than
Cain." This offering was ac-
cepted by God because it was
offered in faith. Every believ-
ing sinner is accepted by
Him.
We have enmity shown
forth. "And Cain was very
wroth" (4:5). He was religious
in appearance, but his heart
was not right with God, for
there was no faith. In these
days many have gone the I


way of Cain, religious in ap-
pearance, but having no sav-
ing faith in the Lord.
We have mercy revealed.
God told him he had no rea-
son to be wroth, because "sin
lieth at the door" (4:6-7). Get
rid of the sin! What a mercy
that the atoning price is so
near, yet refused by Cain and
those who have no faith.
They take the sin instead of
taking faith in the Lord.
We see righteousness


hated. V. 8 reveals to us that
Cain slew his brother. Why?
Look at 1 John 3:12. He hated
the righteousness which God
had seen in his brother.
Christ was the righteousness
of God, and men cried, "Away
with this man!" (Luke 23:18).
It will be better if you will
have Christ than to go the
way of Cain. False worship-
pers, remember the way and
the doom of Cain. Have faith
in the Christ of God.

FHSAA seeks state football series host


By PATRICK CASEY
The Florida High School
Athletic Association is cur-
rently seeking a site for the
2007 and 2008 state high
school football championship
games.

For the last two seasons,
Miami has been the host for
the state championship


games, hosting eight title
contests while drawing a
record number of fans for the
2006 title games. Dolphin
Stadium played host this
past season to eight games
bringing in a total of 56,110
paying customers for an av-
erage of 7,000 fans per con-
test, the highest average
draw since 1997 when the


games were held in
Gainesville.

Northwest Florida was
hardly overjoyed when Mi-
ami was named the site two
years ago, as teams, from
Graceville and Tallahassee
were required to make the
eight to 10-hour drive to Mi-
ami for the championship


game. However, Miami drew
extremely well, especially in
Class 6A, which traditionally
draws the most fans for the
event.


Prior to 1989, games were
played on one of the contes-
tants home field. Walton
qualified for the state cham-


pionship game in 1983 and
1985, playing on the road
both times. Walton lost the
Class 2A title game to Eustis
27-6, but brought home the
county's only title in football
in 1985 with a 7-2 road vic-
tory over Wildwood. Walton
would have hosted the state
title game in Class 2A in
1986, but the Braves lost a

Sports News & Notes


By PATRICK CASEY
The Okaloosa-Walton
baseball team dropped two
out of three games to Gulf
Coast Community College to
fall to 4-2 in Panhandle Con-
ference play. The Raiders are
20-10 overall on the regular
season. The OWC softball
team is 20-16 on the year and
will open Panhandle Confer-
ence play this week..


The Florida State baseball
team swept Wake Forest over
the weekend to improve to
23-0 on the season. FSU is
the only unbeaten team left
in college baseball and is off
to a 3-0 start in the ACC.
Florida State will return to
the diamond on Wednesday,
March 21 as the Seminoles
will travel on the road to face
the Jacksonville Dolphins. It
marks just the second game


away from Mike Martin
Field for the Seminoles so far
in 2007. First pitch is slated
for 6 p.m. and right-hander
Caleb Graham is expected to
make his first start of the
season. FSU needs a win in
that contest as well as in the
series opener against Boston
College in Tallahassee on
Friday to tie the school
record for 25 straight base-
ball wins.


Baker edged South Wal-
ton in weightlifting 51-38
last week in Baker. Walton
and Freeport did not partici-
pate because school was out
in Walton County for the first
three days of the week last
week.
Walton won the girls and
boys tennis match with Free-
port last week to even their
record at 2-2 for both the boys


and girls tennis teams.
After watching parts of all
48 games in the NCAA men's
basketball tournament, it is
easy to see the reason the
event has become so popular.
Though the first round was
not the most competitive that
it has ever been, the second
round on Saturday and Sun-
day was one of the best with
three overtime games and


several that were not decided
until the last few minutes of
the contest. This weekend's
third and fourth rounds
should produce high ratings
for CBS with so many major
conference. teams left to do
battle.

Hotlanta was the scene for
this weekend's NASCAR
race as Jimmie Johnson
pulled into victory lane after
passing Tony Stewart three
laps from the end of the race.
Johnson, who currently
holds the Cup championship,
made Sunday's win two in-a-
row after winning in Las Ve-
gas the previous weekend.


.. .'. .

Johnson did have some
problems with his tire in the
325th lap of the Kobalt Tolls
500, but it did not slow him
down enough to allow two-
time champion Stewart to
overtake the win and get his
first victory of the season.
It was a neck-and-neck
race between Johnson and
Stewart as they rounded the


curve in the 322nd lap of the
race, but Johnson pulled
away at the conclusion of the
lap and led easily until the
finish.
Stewart placed second,
Matt Kenseth came in at
third, followed by Jeff Bur-

Montoya placing fifth.,

WHS senior gets prestigious award


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, 2007.
Kathleen Foy, a senior at
Walton Senior High School in
Defuniak Springs, was one of
the students to receive an in-
vitation. Foy was chosen
from her class to represent


Walton High School in the
award application. The
application required each
participant to submit a com-
munity service project they
created and accomplished.
Kathleen's project was
"Stockings for Soldiers." Her
project idea was accom-


polished with the help of the
Walton High Anchor Club
and the surrounding commu-
nity.
At the end of the award
program, the top two stu-
dents were recognized and
each received a check for
$1,000. Kathleen Foy was


one of the two winners.
Kathleen said she "was
shocked, but very honored."
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.

of the Native American. '
Beginning with the
Apache, students connected
with Indian tribes including
Blackfoot, Caddo, Catawba,
Cayuga, Cherokee, Chey-
enne, Chickasaw, Chippewa,
Choctaw, Comanche, Creek,
Crow, Iroquois, Kaw,
Kickapoo, Kiowa, Mohawk,
Mojave, Oneida, Osage, Paw-
nee, Seminole, Shoshone,
and Sioux.
Music was an important
part ,of the program, begin-
niig with the song,
"Kja liga," which was in-
'spired by the Kaw Indian
tribe. Next, we played "In-
dian Reservation: The La-
ment of the Cherokee." Lis-
teners heard of the sorrow
d u ri ng the Trail of Tears and
The Legend of the Cherokee
Rose.
The song "Comanche" was
played next, a story of Gen-
eral Custer's war horse who
earned his name when he
became the lone survivor of
the Battle of Little Big Horn


and Custer's Last Stand.
The audience heard an old
Iroquois Legend called The
Gift of the Trees, and a
Mohawk Indian Prayer. The
lyrics to "Seminole Wind"
transcended the listener to
the Everglades where the
voice of Osceola can be heard
through a mystic Indian cry.
A slideshow was used to pro-
vide lyrics to the songs so
that the audience could sing
along.
The program ended with
an old Cherokee Legend of
wisdom, a story passed down
from grandfather to grand-
son, and told about a fight
between good and evil which
abides within us.
The follow-up comes with
a guest speaker, Mrs.
Wimberly Rayban, a Navajo,
who grew up on a reservation
in New Mexico and Four Cor-
ners.
Her visit is expected dur-
ing the month of March.
Paxton High School thanks
those who attended the pro-
gram, the media crew, and
those who contributed to
making the program a suc-
cess.

Two men arrested following kidnap attempt


The Walton County
Sheriff's Office (WCSO) ar-
rested two men on March 18
in connection with a kidnap-
ping attempt at a Chevron
gas station and store at the
intersection of Hwy. 98 and
CR-30A.
According to a WCSO re-
lease, two men entered the
store at around 12:45 a.m. on


March 18. One tried to en-
gage the store clerk in con-
versation, and motioned for
her to come from behind the
counter. When the clerk
came to the side of counter,
the man reportedly grabbed
her and began dragging her
toward the front of the store.
She screamed, alerting a fel-
low worker in the back, who
came out. After a "short


struggle," the man released
the clerk and ran out of store,
driving off. His companion
remained in the store. The
WCSO was contacted.
Deputies arrived, and the
man still in the store was
identified as Javier L. Diaz,
41. He claimed not to know
the other man. Diaz was al-
lowed to leave, and deputies


followed him home, staking
out the residence until an-
other vehicle arrived. In that
vehicle was Luis C.
Martinez, 25, later identified
as the attempted kidnapper.
When deputies tried to en-
ter the residence, Martinez
ran out of the rear, saw depu-
ties, and ran back into the
house. The other deputies


forced entry and arrested
Martinez and Diaz.
Martinez was. booked "oh
one count of resisting arrest
without violence, one count
of aggravated assault with
attempt to commit a felony,
and one count of attempting
to commit a crime. Diaz was
charged with one count of re-
sisting without violence.

By DOTTY NIST
South Walton Fire District
(SWFD) fire commissioners
have voted unanimously to
extend a job offer to chief
candidate Rick Talbert of
Titusville, Florida.
The decision took place at
a special SWFD meeting on
March 19.
Talbert currently serves as
fire chief/emergency
manager for the city of
Titusville in east central
Florida, a position he has
held since 1999.
The search for a new
SWFD chief began in
December 2006 following the
resignation of longtime chief
Les Hallman to serve as
director for the state Fire
Marshal's Office. In
February, chief candidate
Ray Colburn of the Orlando-
area Reedy Creek
Improvement District
declined an employment offer
from the SWFD.
On March 19, candidate
Rick Talbert met with SWFD
senior management and with
firefighter, labor union
leaders prior to the special


"He brings an awful lot to the
table, said SWFD Fire Commissioner Jack Abbit.


board meeting that
afternoon, where formal
interview questions were
posed to the candidate.
The fire commissioners
were enthusiastic about
Talbert's qualifications and
with the management
philosophy that he described.
"He brings an awful lot to
the table," commented Fire
Commissioner Jack Abbit,
who had participated on the
SWFD search committee to
fill the chiefs position.
A Florida resident since
1987, Talbert has 29 years
experience in fire service
under his belt since starting
his career as a firefighter for
Marion County Fire Rescue.
He also told the fire
commissioners that his
father and a number of other
relatives have been employed
in fire service.


In 2001, Talbert was
elected president of the
Florida Fire Chiefs'
Association, a position in
which he currently serves.
"I'm proud of ascending
through the ranks and
spending 29 healthy years in
fire service," Talbert noted.
The candidate said he
believes in creating
partnerships within the
community to help "grow the
organization."
Talbert explained that his
management style is a
"participatory" one,
emphasizing two-way
communication, mentoring,
positive motivation, a
succession plan, and
promotion from within the
organization.
He qualified that he is able
to be autocratic when
necessary, as in emergency


RICK TALBERT could be the hiw SWFD fire chief


situations. '
"We need to be prepared
for all hazards," Talbert
added.
After Talbert's departure
from SWFD headquarters
and at the close of the board
meeting, the fire
commissioners authorized
Maurice Gilbert,. SWFD
chairman, to extend a job
offer to the candidate,
including provisions for


COASTAL DUNE LAKES ADVISORY BOARD members at their latest meeting.


Stormwater runoff a


problem, says CDLAB


By JEFFREY POWELL
Walton County Director of
Planning and Development
Pat Blackshear, Environ-
mental Manager Billy
McKee and Development Or-
der Inspector Tommy Hinote
spoke recently with the
Coastal Dune Lake Advisory
Board (CDLAB) in an effort
to improve the future health
of south Walton's rare coastal
dune lakes.
Stormwater runoff was of
great importance to everyone


involved with the brain-
storming session. "Every
water body in the state is be-
ing affected by stormwater
runoff," Blackshear said. "It
is heartbreaking to see what
is happening to Redfish
Lake. That damage is due to
uncontrolled runoff."
Blackshear discussed sev-
eral steps that could ulti-
mately improve water qual-
ity in the lakes. Her sugges-
tions included increasing
standards for runoff in new


developments, identifying
lots of record that are criti-
cal for the health of the lakes
and purchasing those prop-
erties to retrofit existing de-
velopment.
Blackshear also acknowl-
edged the efforts the CDLAB
has made in an attempt to
improve the lakes. "The
county appreciates the work
the CDLAB does and will co-
operate with them."
CDLAB Vice Chair Meg
Nelson echoed Blackshear's


goodwill. "Pat has been very
open in working with the
board," Nelson said. "We
have a terrific working rela-
tionship with her depart-
ment."
Blackshear also voiced her
concerns for locating dune
lake outfall corridors. Nelson
responded by announcing
that the CDLAB had already
secured the services of an ex-
pert to do just that. "We need
to locate the true historic
outfalls," Blackshear said.


moving and temporary living
expenses during the first six
months of employment.
While expressing
eagerness to fill the vacancy
in their organization, the fire
commissioners agreed on a
30-to-45-day time frame for
getting Talbert on board if he
accepts their offer, in order to
allow him time to satisfy
commitments with his
current position.


Preservation

Topsail Hill

Road

By JEFFREY POWELL
The Florida Department
of Environmental Protection
(DEP), Division of Recreation
& Parks held a public meet-
ing on March 15 and met
with an advisory group on
March 16 to discuss the Top-
sail Hill Preservation State
Park proposed land manage-
ment plan.
The proposal calls for
many improvements to the
park's walking trails and
camping facilities. These im-
provements met with nearly
universal approval from the
advisory board members.
One change to the park
however did not get full sup-
port from District Five
County Commissioner Cindy
Meadows. That change
would be the probable clos-
ing of Topsail Hill Road lo-
cated near the intersection of
US 98 and Mack Bayou
Road.
"Of course, I want to see
this area preserved," said
Meadows. "I am concerned

humanitarian award


Harry Millsaps, president
of the Emerald Coast Asso-
ciation of Realtors recently
awarded Tricia Carlisle-
Northcutt the Association's
Humanitarian of the Year
award for 2006, as well as the
2006 South Walton Realtor of
the Year award..
The humanitarian award
is given in recognition for go-
ing above and beyond the
scope of their job as a real
estate agent by improving
the community in which they
live. This is the first year
ECAR has given the humani-
tarian award.
Northcutt received the
award for her work with The
Children's Volunteer Health
Network, a non-profit orga-
nization, which she founded
in 2005. CVHN provides free
immediate healthcare, den-
tal, medical and mental for
uninsured and under insured
children in Okaloosa and
Walton Counties. She was
also honored by the National
Association of Realtors with
a "Good Neighbor" merit
award.

Origins of First Florida Cavalry



The Civil War in



Walton County


By JEFFREY POWELL

Close to forty people re-
cently attended an OWC
Prime Time program in
which the First Florida Cav-
alry of Union Civil War vol-
unteers was discussed. The
meeting took place at the
Coastal Branch Library in
Santa Rosa Beach and is part
of an ongoing program aimed
primarily at visiting snow-
birds.
Most students of local his-
tory will recall that Walton
County was the only county
in Florida to vote against se-
cession from the Union. They
will also recall that despite
this, after the war began,
Walton County had a very
high percentage of Confeder-
ate volunteers per capital.
Midway through the war,
Marsh contends most Florida
Panhandle occupants had
enough trouble dealing with
roving band of deserters and


just putting food on the table,
to send any more of their
men to fight on far-off battle-
fields.
In late 1863, after
Gettysburg and Vicksburg
had fallen, a Hungarian-born
Union general named
Alexander Sandor Asboth
was ordered to the Pensacola
area to. squelch remaining
Confederate activity. Upon
arrival, Asboth created the
First Florida Cavalry. Al-
though most of the officers
were of northern descent,
nearly all of the enlisted men
were from north Florida and
south Alabama. Of the 661
men that served, 460 en-
listed at Fort Barrancas in
Pensacola and 179 at the
East Pass on Santa Rosa Is-
land.
Marsh contends that some
of the reasons for southern
men to join in the Union ef-
fort were to avoid being
drafted by Confederate


forces, to have the chance to
stay close to home and to en-
joy a bounty of $100, which
would have been a large sum
of money at that time.

The First Florida Cavalry
was involved in 25 engage-
ments in. 1864-65, the most
notable being held near
Marianna, Florida, where
Asboth was severely
wounded.
After the war, most of the
First Florida volunteers
stayed in the area where
there was little animosity di-
rected toward them. Most
people in the Panhandle just
wanted to go about living
their lives.
The discussion was lively
and drew people from all over
the area. One of the many
guests that attended
Wednesday's meeting was
Elaine Konko, who hails
from Illinois. "We have at-
tended Prime Time programs

for a long time," said Konko.
"It is enjoyable to hear a bit
of the local history."


"Today's audience was a
little different as they are all
from the north," said Marsh.


"We all need to understand
our history so we do not re-
peat the mistakes."


Walton County TDC announces tourism is up


and anticipates a strong spring season


The Walton County Tour-
ist Development Council
(TDC) celebrated a year of
successes in 2006. Bed tax
collections on short term
lodging rentals were up 8.7
percent for fiscal year 2006
as compared to 2005. In the
last three months of the year,
October December 2006,
bed tax collections were up
14.43 percent over the prior
year same period and in De-
cenmber alone collections
were up 27.09 percent over
December 2005.

"We are finally overcoming
misperceptions about the
area due to storms," said
Kriss Titus, executive direc-
tor of the Walton County
TDC. "We have been aggres-
sively marketing the destina-
tion, especially the shoulder
season-September through
December, to ensure our visi-
tors are aware that our
beaches have recovered."
Beaches of South Walton
hosted approximately 2.5
million visitors last year. The
Product Definition Study,
conducted by Majority Opin-


ion Research, a marketing
research agency, revealed
there are 14,500 vacation
rental units available in Wal-
ton County. While inventory
increased by three percent
over the past year, the aver-
age occupancy continued to
grow to 52 percent, a four
percent increase from fiscal
year 2005. Average length of
stay was six nights and av-
erage party size was five per-
sons.
"Our spring season looks
very promising. Three out of
four visitors to Beaches of
South Walton are repeat visi-
tors and now that they know
our beaches are back they
are planning their vaca-
tions," said Titus. "We antici-
pate a strong tourism season
this year. On average we
grow four to six percent year
over year and anticipate this
year will follow suit."
Titus went on to say that
the TDC has a strong mar-
keting program in place tar-
geting leisure travelers for
spring and summer. In the
meantime, the marketing
team is redirecting its efforts


to focus heavily on reaching
out to new audiences, such as
meeting planners, and pro-
moting the shoulder season.
Beaches of South Walton
received a major win this
year in being selected as the
host location for the VISIT
Florida 27th annual Florida
Encounter tradeshow in Oc-
tober. This marks the first
time Florida's top meetings
trade show will be held in
Northwest Florida. Meeting
planners who participate in
Florida Encounter are se-
lected on a basis of total
bookings to Florida destina-
tions.
They represent corpora-
tions, associations, and gov-
ernment agencies that plan
events from 20 to 20,000 at-
tendees. The TDC has al-
ready begun public relations
activities to promote the
show and recently worked
with ConventionSouth and
the Official Florida Meeting
Planners Guide to heighten
awareness of the area.
"The meetings market is

though that we would be tak-
ing away beach access to the
public."DEP Planning Man-
ager Lew Scruggs pointed
out that the road closer
would not interfere with a
citizens privilege to visit the
beach. Scruggs stressed that


visitors would have to park
at the main parking area off
of CR30A and take a short
ride on a tram to visit the
western edge of the park.
This arrangement would also
allow park mangers a way to
better monitor daily atten-
dance Scruggs maintained.
"The Division has come to
the conclusion that we can


not develop a public access on
Topsail Hill Road that would
adequately protect the num-
ber of natural resources of
the preserve," Scruggs said.
"We need to move this park-
ing area because of the dam-
age to the hydrology that
supports the coastal dune
lakes, we are not eliminating
beach access."

You think you
might have tried ev-
erything around
Freeport in the way
of restaurants and
catering services,
but this weekend's
Taste of Freeport is
out to prove that
some of the finest
foods are served
right on the city's
back porch.

With all the buzz about
this weekend's Taste of Free-
port taking place this Satur-
day at Hammock Bay Devel-
opment, it is exciting to hear
many top chefs throughout
the county are preparing
some very fine gourmet


treats and appetizing dishes
for the crowds to taste and
vote for as their favorite.
A wide variety of appetiz-
ers, main-course dishes and
an array of desserts will be
showcased throughout the
day's event.

All those participating in
this weekend's event have
said they are excited about
taking part in the event,
which spotlights the property
and city of Freeport, and also
their food and businesses.
The line-up of restaurants'
and caterers includes: The
Big City Grill, Sheila's Coun-
try Bakery, Cherry Peppers,
Paradise Cuisine, Dine By
Design, Nick's Seafood, Em-
erald Coast Catering and
Bulldog Pizza. The eateries
will be serving a variety of
delicacies. From seafood and
grilled chicken to Cajun


dishes and homemade past-
ries, the local restaurants
and caterers will be well-rep-
resented.

Some of the restaurants and
caterers have been regulars
along the Emerald Coast for
years, The majority of those
who will be serving and dem-
onstrating are not new to the
culinary world, but have re-
cently moved to the Emerald
Coast.
Visitors will have the op-
portunity to vote for
Freeport's, "Best of Taste," as
well as a second and third
place winner. The presenta-
tion of the awards will be at
2:30 p.m.
Once you have filled up on
your favorite dish, take a
stroll around the lawn and
look at the numerous artists
and an array of arts and
crafts. Painters, jewelry de-
signers, furniture makers,
potterers and many others
will be exhibiting and selling
art.

Tours of the facility and the
grounds will also be available
for those who wish to find out
more about Hammock Bay,
their developments and their
vision and plans for the fu-
ture. The venue has been
working for weeks to prepare


for this inaugural public
event that will be attracting
visitors from all over the
Florida Panhandle.
All the strolling around the
greens will be accompanied
by the sounds of the Coconut
Steel Drum Band playing
Calypso and Caribbean-style
music from the main pavil-
ion.

The event is being sponsored
by the Freeport Town Plant-
ers, Bank Trust and Ham-
mock Bay Development.
The Freeport Town Plant-
ers is an organization that
sponsors various events
around Freeport including
the Christmas decorations,
the Miss Freeport pageant
that was held this past week-
end and various scholarships
that the organization gives to
high school students each
year.

ing 835-5611. Tickets are $30

Shrew gets tamed at OWC


By BRUCE COLLIER


Okaloosa-Walton College
(OWC) makes its second ven-
ture into the world of William
Shakespeare, with "The Tam-
ing of the Shrew." The play
opened on March 21, and con-
tinues through this weekend.
OWC professor and direc-
tor Clint Mahle got the ball
rolling last year with "The
Merry Wives ofWindsor," one
of the lesser-known works by
English literature's favorite
son. By contrast, "Shrew" is
possibly the most famous of
the comedies. Frequently
staged and several times
filmed, the play recounts the
tempestuous wooing and
wedding of Petruchio and
Kate. The latter is one of the
plummest of Shakespeare's
roles for women.
Mahle has staged the play
on his all-purpose, Globe
Playhouse-inspired set that
he designed and built last
season. However, there is a
twist. The characters are
garbed in modern dress. The
only appearance of "Elizabe-
than" costumes is for comic
effect.
The play is set in Italy, but
no attempt is, made to
Italianize the characters, be-
yond retaining their names.
Mahle cast a number of male
characters as women,. a
variation on Shakespeare's
own practice of casting boys
in women's roles, acting be-
ing off-limits to females in
his time.
Aside from necessitating
a few pronomial changes in
the script, the gender-cross-
ing affects the show very
little. In fact, it adds interest.
As written, Kate and her
sister Bianca are the daugh-
ters of Baptista, a wealthy
gentleman of Padua. In this
production, papa is mama,
with Alicia Leonard as Si-
gnora Baptista. In another
instance, the garrulous ser-


vant Biondello is played with
a touch of Paris Hilton com-
plete with multiple costume
changes and a pet dog by
Nalia Bauer.
The story is familiar to.
most people. Baptista will
not marry off her younger
daughter Bianca.until first-
born Kate is hitched. The
meek and dutiful Bianca has
a small mob of suitors. The
ill-tempered,. "shrewish"
Kate is batting zero.
Petruchio, an out-of-town
gentleman, arrives on the
scene, declaring himself on a
mission to "wive it wealthily"
in Padua. Petruchio vows to
"tame" Kate and marry into
her wealthy family. What fol-
lows is the play.
The rest of the play con-
sists of parallel courtships,-
Kate and Petruchio and
Bianca and her hopeful
swain Lucentio. If you know
the play, you know there's a
lot of flying punches and fur-
niture, insults and endear-
ments, disguises and in-
trigues, and rapid-fire pun-
ning and word-play. Of
course, all ends well, Big
Willie Shakespeare-style.
The cast, drawn from the
OWC drama department and
the area community, hangs
together from start to finish.
Mahle is well on his way to
forging a Shakespeare and
classical ensemble.
Among the standout per-
formances are Christa and
Bob Whittaker as Kate and
Petruchio. Bob plays
Petruchio laid back and easy-
going, whether dressed in
suit-and-tie or his preferred
attire of, biker leathers.
Christa's Kate is like a tiny
"cat that's been goaded into
permanent fury. She strides
the stage, hands alternately
balled into fists or extended
to slash. When Petruchio
picks her up and slings her
over his shoulders, it's as
much for protection as con-


venience in traveling.
Alicia Leonard plays
Baptista as what the French
call "a woman of a certain
age," with a touch of gray, el-
egantly dressed and per-
petually sipping a glass of
wine. On the rare occasions
when Baptista gets riled, we
see where Kate learned her
tactics. Baptista loves both
her girls, she just wants them
out of the house so she can .
get back to basking in the at-
tentions of the local males.
Other{fotable work comes
from Rachel Hoskins and
Danny Thomas as a pair of
resourceful and non-servile.
servants, never at a loss for
words. Tony Borella attains
a high level of un-PC char-
acterization as a "fabulous"
Curtis. Chelsea Sorenson
manages to be adorable and
manipulative as Bianca, and
Robert Drake makes hopeful
suitor Hortensio a never-say-
die schlemiel.
Mahle (and Leonard, who
assistant-directed) have
given the cast a large stage,
blocking the actors to play to
all corners to a three-quarter
round house. Scene changes
are accomplished by quick
set-piece shifting. Sound de-
signer Borella's lively musi-
cal score, with plenty of
Buddy Holly and a few well-
known movie themes, frames
it all nicely. The pace is lively
overall, and this shrew gets
tamed in about two hours,
just in case you think
Shakespeare is long and bor-
ing. Not so at OWC, on either
count.

"The Taming of the Shrew"
runs March 21 24, in the
Sprint Theater at the Arts
Center of OWC's Niceville
campus. Curtain time on
March 21 23 is 7:30 p.m.,
and 2 p.m. on March 24. For
