event featured the official
ribbon-cutting, blessing, and
tour for members of the pub-
lic who wanted a look inside
the jail without the inconve-
nience of committing an of-
fense.
Present for the ceremonies
were Walton County Sheriff
Ralph Johnson, corrections
director Maj. Danny
Glidewell, State Attorney
Bill Eddins, Circuit Judge
Kel v in ,Wells,, DeFuniak
Springs Mayor Harold Car-
penter, and Walton County
Commissioners Kenneth
Pridgen, Sara Comander,
and Larry Jones. Jail chap-
lain Rev. Barrett.Glover
made the invocation and.
blessed the lunch provided
for visitors in the facility's
kitchen and dining hall. "I
got saved in jail, some 30
years ago," said Glover.
Pridgen, Johnson, and
Wells each spoke briefly,
praising the work and ser-
vice of contractor Peter
Brown Construction, and
presenting a certificate of ex-
cellence to the company for


completing the facility six
months ahead of schedule
and within its $22 million
budget.
Wells expressed satisfac-
tion and relief at not having
to decide which inmates to
release and which to keep in
jail because of overcrowding
in the old,facility. "This was
sorely needed," he said, add-
ing that the new facility is
"state of the art," affording
video, visiting and
conferencing of court hear-
ings.
Following the ribbon-cut-
ting, the doors of the facility,
were opened and attendees
permitted to roam at will. A
room full of video screens and
booths will serve as a place
for visits, with closed rooms
for attorney/client confer-
ences. Special cells have been
constructed for inmates who
are in danger or are disciplin-
ary problems, as well as more
open areas for "general popu-
lation" male and female in-
mates.

By PATRICK CASEY
The Walton County School
Board met on Tuesday,
March 20, to address an
agenda that included a'
change of construction or-
ders, a proposal to purchase
land near West DeFuniak
Elementary School and a
change to the 2007-08 pro-
posed school calendar.,
The board approved the
purchase of two of three land
parcels north of West DeFu-
niak Elementary School to
try and help ease parking
concerns for the school, as
well as provjye more space
for buses to n ,vigate during
pickup and delivery hours.
The school has suffered with
a shortage of parking that of-
ten spills out onto the roads
leading into the school,
which is located adjacent to
the DeFuniak Springs Little
League Park.
"We have always had an
issue at West DeFuniak with
getting our buses in and out
without involving them in
our parent traffic. But as .the
number of parents who
transport their children
grows, it just becomes more
and more impossible (to do
so). The purchase of this land
would afford us the opportu-


nity to build a road that
would allow a separate en-
trance from our staff and par-
ent entrance for our buses,"
Superintendent Anderson
informed the board.


The board continued to does not like the idea of a

subject of building a metal pus due to the design and

Florida Senate passes Career and Professional Education Act


The Florida Senate just
passed Senate Bill 1232 by a
vote of 36 to 4. The Florida
Career and Professional'
Education Act, sponsored by
Senator Don Gaetz (R-
Niceville), reforms career
education in the state's pub-
lic schools and ties curricu-
lum, testing, and
credentialing to industry
standards.
The legislation calls on
school districts to create joint

groups to establish career

Roy Allen Brown Jr. has
been named as Deputy Pub-
lic Works Director for Walton
County by County Adminis-
trator Ronnie Bell. He en-
tered public service with
Walton County District 5 in
1988.
Brown has served as main-
tenance supervisor manag-
ing upkeep on equipment, as
assistant road foreman, and
as road foreman for District
5."
Brown transferred to a re-
organized Public Works De-
partment in 1998 as right of
way specialist to survey and
secure rights of way for
county road projects.
He subsequently served as
chief engineering inspector
assisting the County Engi-
neer on road projects and
engineering services man-
ager where he managed all
aspects of the county's engi-
neering department. He
served as interim public
works director after former
director John Johnson left
the county's employ, then as

The bill is modeled after

started as that county's su-

$18,000 in certifications and
fully paid college credits at
the time of graduation.
"For business, the issue
that never goes away is re-
cruiting and retaining a high
quality workforce," said


since Lyle Seigler was ap-
pointed as the Public Works
Director in September 2006.
Says Brown, "My first em-
ployment actually started
with Walton County in 1979
and 1980 when I worked as
a summer school hire. I be-
lieve this first work experi-
ence with the county is what
drew me back and ultimately
influenced my decision to
make service ~vith Walton

is one reason I feel strongly
that the county needs to con-

ordinance...temporarily


By JEFFREY POWELL
Mayor Mickey Marse and
the Freeport City Counicil de-
cided to table an ordinance
banning palm trees within
the city limits at its March
22 regular council meeting.
But make no mistake about
it the city still plans to go
ahead with the proposal as
planned. The reasoning be-
hind the delay is simple; they
needed a little time to make
sure the ordinance. was

worded properly.
"We need to hash this is-
sue out," said Councilman
Earl King. "We want to make
sure this is done properly."

Marse said he has re-
ceived multiple calls on the
proposal, most of which are
in favor of the ban. One call
came from a reporter in Mi-
ami wanting to know why
the mayor would ban the
state tree.


"Basically, we do not want
people to cut down old
growth native oak trees and
replace them with palms,"
Marse said. "The ordinance
is meant to protect those
trees."
Marse pointed out that if
a person wanted to use palms
around a pool area, he has no
problem with that.
"All we are trying to do is
preserve-the natural look of
Freeport," Marse said.

Hello, ""
I am Roy McLeod, candidate for re-election to the DeFuniak
Springs City Council, Seat 5. I care about DeFuniak Springs
and am committed to continue working for the benefit of our
city. We will' be facing one of the most critical times we have
seen in recent years and we need continuity on our city coun-
cil. I can provide that continuity.
We are looking at a time of unprecedented growth, and if we
don't manage this growth correctly, it will destroy the unique-
ness of DeFuniak Springs. We must preserve our heritage and at the same .time
continue our progress with intelligent managed growth.
I am involved in our community. I presently serve on the Board of the Chautauqua
Hall Of Brotherhood Foundation and the Walton County Council On Aging. I also
work with the DeFuniak Business and Professional Association by coordinating the
fly over for the 4th of July celebration.
At the present time I represent the City of DeFuniak Springs on the Okaloosa-
Walton Transportation Organization, the West Florida Regional Planning Council,
and The Northwest Florida Regional Transportation Organization.

Please be sure to vote on April 10th and cast your vote for
Continuity, Progress, and Preservation.

Born free, taxed to death.
That statement has never
been more true in Florida
than it is today. I could fill
every page of this newspaper
just listing all the different
kinds of taxes a Florida resi-
dent can pay. As with any
law or institution that is
onerous or unfair by its very
existence, there can be no
change until people stand
united and demand that
change.
Few of us can remember
an America without income
tax, yet that insidious bur-
den was foisted upon Ameri-
cans in 1862 in order to fund
Union forces in the Civil War.
It was eliminated by Con-
gress 10 years later. In 1913,
the 16th Amendment to the
U.S. Constitution created
what we know as income tax.
By 1918, the government
had collected over a billion
dollars and the rest, as they
say, is history.
Since then, there have
been several sporadic and
unorganized attempts to re-
peal income taxes, usually in
the form of creating addi-
tional sales taxes that prom-
ised to keep the bloated fed-
eral government fat and
happy. None of those efforts
gained enough support
among the people to effect
real change.
However, today in Florida,
there is a renewed sense
that changes may be coming
soon. Business groups and
individuals are applying
pressure to the Florida Leg-
islature to end property
taxes and replace them with
sales taxes. It's not a new
idea, but it seems more
likely to succeed than ever.
Groups like "Floridians
for Property Tax Reform" are
converging on the state capi-
tol demanding an overhaul
to Florida's property tax sys-
tem. House Speaker Marco
Rubio's plan, the most popu-
lar so far, would eliminate
homestead property taxes
and replace them with a 2.5-
cent sales tax increase. That
means that every man,
woman and child, whether
they own property or not,
would pay taxes to the state.
This would also include tour-
ists and illegal aliens. The
sale tax increase is esti-
mated to bring in $7.7 billion
the first year and the money
could be shared among
county governments. School
board budgets would not be
affected. Rent, medicine,
food and other essentials
would not be taxed. Second-
home owners would still
have to pay property taxes,
but not as much. The same
would be true for businesses.
The plus-side of the plan
is easy to see, but not every-
one- is thrilled. Part of the
plan includes limiting prop-
erty tax collections by local
government, which basically
imposes a cap on local gov-
ernment spending. That has
many municipal govern-
ment leaders warning that
they may have to cut ser-
vices and limit public
projects. County commis-
sioners and city council
members may go above the
cap, but only by a unanimous
vote.
According to an article in
the St. Petersburg Times,
Florida Retail Federation


President Rick McAllister is
wary of the plan. "The last
thing we need to do in a re-
tail economy is depress
spending." Republican Sena-
tor Jini King is openly op-
posed to the idea, calling it a
tax penalty on the poor. Dan
Gelber, a Democrat repre-
senting Miami Beach, is also
opposed. According to the
Times article, Gelber said,
"We must be cautious that we
do not shift the tax burden
from one group to another."
Frankly, I disagree. First,
I'm pretty sure I know which
"group" Rep. Gelber is trying
to protect in Miami and if
anyone has been penalized
here, it's the hard-working,
middle-class American, who
has been forced to fund ev-
ery ludicrous, looney-tuned
idea to come out of Washing-
ton D.C. There is absolutely
no justification for Ameri-
cans to work the first four or
five months of each year and
then be forced to give all
those wages to the govern-
ment just to pay their annual
taxes.
I oppose it philosophically
because such taxes penalize
middle-class America the
people who pay the Welfare
and Food Stamp bills so Wel-
fare moms can keep popping
out new generations of free-
loaders. It's the middle-class
Americans who get stuck
with the tab for illegal aliens
who flood our hospitals and
clinics without paying a cent.
It's the middle-class Ameri-
cans who work and save
money to buy a house, a car,
pay for their children's edu-
cation, own a business and
who quietly go about trying
to live the American Dream,
while corporate America
pays little, if any, taxes and
rips off the retirement sav-
ings of its employees. It's the
middle-class Americans,
whose own government does
its best to downsize every
once-thriving industry in the
country to compete with
wages paid in Third-World
countries, all in favor of "a
global economy." It's also
those same retired Ameri-
cans, many living in Florida,
who have to sell their retire-
ment homes and move be-
cause they can't afford the
rising property taxes.
That's who I think has
been penalized. I think it's
about time that Floridiafhs
joined together to send the
strongest message possible to
our lawmakers. Will state,
county and municipal gov-
ernments have to tighten
their belts and make do with
less money? Yes, but who
among us can deny the near
limitless waste these govern-
ment entities display with
our money.
I continue to quote Rep.
Don Brown, who once told
me, "We don't have a revenue
problem, we have a spending
problem." Well, if there's less
to spend, maybe our govern-
ment officials will be forced
to trim the pork fat and
spend our money on the es-
sentials, which is what we
elected them to do in the first
place.

There will always be death
and taxes, but at least death
doesn't get worse every year.
Stop the pain. Just say no
to property taxes.


NEW FOM HECAPTO


CITIZENS PROPERTY IN-
SURANCE created as the
state's insurance company of
last resort received final ap-
proval Monday from the Leg-
islature to compete with pri-
vate insurers for coastal poli-
cies.
"My hope all along has been
to allow Citizens become prof-
itable, like a supermarket and
a true choice," said Sen. Rudy
Garcia, co-chair of the
Legislature's Joint Budget
Commission, which approved
the new venture.
Following orders delivered
in the January special ses-
sion, Citizens will let coastal
residents choose between
wind-only and full-coverage
policies, at rates state regu-
lators say will be lower than
that of some private compa-
nies.
The business plan already
has the blessings of Gov.
Charlie Crist and the Florida
Cabinet. Citizens President
Scott Wallace said it will first
offer its all-in-one policies af-
ter April to Citizens' 118,000
coastal customers who have
two Citizens' policies, one for
windstorm and one for the
rest of their coverage.
The new coverage will be
available in June to 282,000
policyholders insured by both
Citizens and a private com-
pany, as well as the rest of the
public. I
Currently the company can
offer only windstorm coverage
to a coastal homeowner if an
insurer wants to keep the
more profitable part of the
business for fire and other
common perils.
Supporters, including Crist,
contend that allowing Citi-
zens to challenge the private
market will bring down rates.
"I think that was the whole
idea behind the legislation,
and we're hoping it will go
that direction," said Deputy
Insurance Commissioner
David Foy.
Critics claim Citizens, al-
ready carrying $432 billion in
exposure, will balloon so large
a major hurricane would
crush consumers with huge
charges to bail out the fund.
Citizens calculates it can of-
fer coverage up to 40 percent
cheaper than Florida's largest
private carrier, State Farm.,
Garcia, who chaired the
Senate's insurance committee
in 2005 and 2006, has intro-
duced his own bill, SB 2498,
making Citizens coverage
available to anyone who
wants it.
Currently, homeowners
must prove they can't find
private coverage for less than
25 percent above what Citi-
zens charges.
The Miami lawmaker's bill
would also close the door,
starting next year, on the cre-
ation of any new Florida sub-
sidiaries of national compa-
nies, and would refuse to re-
new operating licenses of
those already here, such as
State Farm and Allstate.
It also requires insurers to
list the profits of their na-
tional parents when seeking
rate hikes.
His ultimate goal is to build
up Citizens to the point that
it is an attractive private
take-over target.


"I am hoping that some
day, Citizens would be an in-
teresting company for a large
insurance company to buy --
,to see -a bunch of policies that
are profitable," Garcia said.
BYPAIGE ST JOHN,
TALLAHASSEE DEMO-
CRAT

THE FLORIDA LEGIS-
LATURE is in session
through May 4. The key is-
sues last week and what's
coming up:,

(1) BUDGET:

WHAT HAPPENED: The
House put out its agency
budgets, which the Senate
did at the end of last week.
Deadline for proposed
amendments to these build-
'ing blocks of the state spend-
ing plan hit mid-week as
lawmakers wrangle with a
tight revenue year. -
WHAT'S NEXT: Still
plenty of debate to go, but
now it's hard numbers being
argued.

(2) INSURANCE

WHAT HAPPENED: Citi-
zens Property Insurance, the
state-run insurer of last re-
sort, has all the approvals it
needs to compete more with
private companies after a
joint legislative committee
checked off on Monday.

WHAT'S NEXT: All-in-one
policies available to existing
Citizens coastal customers
starting in April and to ev-
eryone else beginning in
June.

(3) STEM CELL

WHAT HAPPENED: A
Senate committee Tuesday
heard a Sen. Mike
Haridopolos bill that pro-
vides $20 million for stem
cell research in the state, as
requested by Gov. Crist.
WHAT'S NEXT: Debate
over its provisions, which
would define what kind of
research is allowed.

(4) PUBLIC SERVICE
COMMISSION

WHAT HAPPENED: A
slate of six nominees for pos-
sible, appointment to the
Public Service Commission
is forwarded by a legislative
commission for Gov. Charlie
Crist to pick two.
WHAT'S NEXT: If Crist
picks Sen. Nancy
Argenziano, as widely ex-
pected, the rush will be on to
fill her Senate seat in a spe-
cial election.

(5) PRESIDENTIAL
PURSUIT

WHAT HAPPENED: Ari-
zona Republican Sen. John
McCain dropped into Talla-
hassee Tuesday for a
fundraiser, the first of many
who seek their party's nomi-
nation for president to stop
here and elsewhere around
the state.
WHAT'S NEXT: Demo-
cratic Illinois Sen. Barack
Obama has his own Tally
fundraiser Friday.


-Editor,
I recieve a daily newspaper and often wonder if it is worth
cost. However, when compared with other similar papers, it
comes out about even.
Today's paper (3--17-07) carried a news item and photo
that highly offended me. It was a picture of the Confederate
Battle Flag being hanged on a gallows. It was by "artist"
John Sims and exhibited in the Mary Brogan Museum of
Art and Science in Tallahassee. The exhibit was entitled:
"The Proper Way to Hang a Confederate Flag."
Right now, I sincerely regret the South didn't win the war
for Southern Independence, also known as the Civil War.
The flag depicted in this ugly and disgusting piece of "art"
wasthe battle flag carried by troops in the field, not the flag
that flew at the capitol in Richmond. Many people don't know
the difference.
Why am I offended? For many reasons, one of them being
my great-gramdfathers on both sides of the family served in
the Confederate Army, as did most of the white male adults
of that era and time.
Why were they fighting? The South had been invaded by
Union troops to preserve the Union, according to them. Sla-
very was injected as an issue later in the conflict. Slavery
had many ramifications too long for here and now.
After years of spilling blood, the South was exhausted. It
did not down easily and exacted more blood than was spilled
of its own.
After the war came "Reconstruction," one of the lqwestarad
sorriest periods in U.S. history a time when "carpetbag-
gers" and "scalawags" ground the South under the heel of
occupation. A "scalawag" was a white Southerner who coop-
erated with the "carpetbaggers" the lowest of the low.
Now let me tell you what the battle flag represents: It
stands for perserverance in the face of adversity, for the grit
and determination of outgunned and outnumbered Confed-
erate soldiers who often carried the field. It is an emblem of
their courage and
sacrifice.
Though they have long departed this life, we Southerners
are justly proud of them, our ancestors and their flag.

Defuniak Springs is be-
coming known as a place
where vegetable and fruit
can grow very big, Cabbages
larger than a man's head,
lemons the size of grapefruit,
and now rutabagas.
These rutabagas where

likes to garden in a small
way. He plants his rutabagas

To mak the large tender

thinned out to eight inches in
the drill. The leaves can be
eaten like turnip leaves.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, MARCH 29, 2007

DFSPD presents anti-substance abuse campaign at WHS


On Thursday, March 29
DeFuniak Springs City Mar-
shal Mike Adkinson, Lt.
Michael Barker, public infor-
mation officer Eddie Nelson,
and other members of the
DeFuniak Springs Police
Department (DFSPD) will
visit the juniors and seniors
at Walton High School
(WHS), hosting a Substance
Abuse Awareness Cam-
paign. The program will be-
gin at 9 a.m.
During the campaign the
officers will address the dan-
gers of using alcoholic bev-
erages and illegal drugs. As-
sisting them in the cam-
paign are the Walton County
Prevention Coalition
(WCPC), Walton County
Underage Driniking
Taskforce (UDT), the
Florida Department of Juve-
nile Justice (DJJ), Okaloosa-
Walton Chapter for Mothers
Against Drunk Driving


The Walton County
Sheriff's Office (WCSO) has
been investigating thirty-one
residential burglaries in cen-
tral and south Walton
County that occurred be-
tween April 2005 and Febru-
ary 2007. Twenty-three of
these burglaries were re-
ported south of
Choctawhatchee Bay and.
eight were reported north of
the bay.
During the course of the
investigation it was deter-
mined that the persons sus-
pected of committing these
crimes had been primarily
targeting the homes of His-
panic residents. During this
time period, suspects tar-
geted homes that they sus-
pected to be unoccupied, ap-
parently expecting the resi-
dents to be at work.
On March 14, 2007, Jo-
seph Albert Marshall of Free-
port, was arrested by WCSO


(MADD), the Florida Divi-
sion of Alcoholic Beverages
and Tobacco (ABT), and a
group of local teenage stu-
dents representing Students
Against Destructive Decision
Making (SADD). All these or-
ganizations have helped to
create and finalize plans for
the event, and all are eager
to help prevent injury or
even death as a result of sub-
stance abuse.
A member of the local
MADD chapter will be dem-
onstrating the effects alcohol
has on the body and sharing
his own personal story about
how a drunken driver deeply
affected his life. DJJ will
have a juvenile speaking
about her own past experi-
ences with making the
wrong decisions and the le-
gal consequences she has
faced since. The local SADD
chapter, in conjunction with
the UDT, will be performing


on a felony warrant based on
evidence from a daytime bur-
glary that occurred on De-
cember 19, 2006 at a resi-
dence on Cypress Point Lane
in Santa Rosa Beach.
During the interview,
Marshall reportedly con-
fessed to committing eight
other burglaries in Walton
County. He also admitted to
having knowledge of a total
of 51 burglaries committed
south of Choctawhatchee
Bay, and 23 north of the
Choctawhatchee Bay in Wal-
ton County.
Marshall further stated
that they focused on His-
panic homes because they
knew the victims often kept
cash hidden in their homes,
that they often left their
homes unlocked during the
day and that they knew the
victims would be reluctant
to report the burglaries.
On March 19, 2007, Jo-


an onstage skit on illegal
drugs and alcohol. ABT offi-
cials will offer a power point
presentation on the laws
about underage drinking,
fraudulent identification,
and the use of tobacco. The
WCPC will show films that
will further spread the mes-
sage. Adkinson will open the
campaign, informing the stu-
dents "why we are here."
Superintendent Carlene
Anderson, and other school
officials and resource offic-
ers, have all offered support
for the campaign. All agree
that this time of year is ideal
to address these issues, with
spring break, proms, and
summer break approaching.
The groups plan to repeat the
campaign at all district high
schools.
Nelson said, "we are very
happy to know that our
agency has such a great
working relationship with


seph Dewayne Cordell of
Santa Rosa Beach. was ar-
rested by the WCSO on a
felony warrant for a burglary
that occurred on June 21,
2005 at a residence on
Mandy Circle in Santa Rosa
Beach. During the interview,
Cordell reportedly confessed
to committing seven other
burglaries in Freeport and
Santa Rosa Beach. He also
corroborated statements
made by Marshall.
Based on the confessions
and the evidence obtained at
the crime scenes, additional
warrants are being prepared
for the two suspects. The on
going investigation -has also
revealed several other sus-
pects.
WCSO asks that if anyone
has been a victim of a bur-
glary, and has not reported
it, to contact the Walton
County Sheriff's Office at
267-2000 or 892-811f1.


Is Your Teenager Depressed?


By ROBIN NEWTON
It is not just being moody
or having a bad day. It is de-
pression and teens are vul-
nerable. The stresses of ev-
eryday life multiply exponen-
tially as children enter their
teenage years. Teachers and
other professionals are
trained to recognize the
symptoms but parents and
family members need to be
educated in this area.
While depression affects
all ages, statistics for teen de-
pression are shocking. Ac-
cording to the National Insti-
tute of Mental Health
(NIMH), teen depression
usually lasts for about eight
months but surprisingly,
more teens than adults suf-
fer from depression for at
least a year.
Researchers at NIMH have
found the signs and symp-
toms of depression range
from sadness to feelings of
hopelessness. Changes in
appetite, weight and sleep
patterns should send up a
red flag. Loss of interest in
normal activities, difficulty
concentrating and feeling
overwhelmed are all symp-
toms of depression. Even
though depressed moods are
not uncommon during teen
years, exhibiting five or more
symptoms for two weeks
needs to be addressed.
Although depression is
only one cause of teen sui-
cide, parents need to know
what to look for in teens. Dr.
Jan Fawcett, director of The
Rush Institute for Mental
Well-Being, encouraged the
public to open a discussion
about teen suicide. Accord-
ing to Dr. Fawcett, alcohol or
drug problems, problems
within the family or the loss
of a loved one are reasons to
keep a closer watch over
teens. Signs to watch for in-
clude teens giving away
prized possessions or talking
about suicide. Alarming sta-
tistical data collected by the
Substance Abuse and Mental
Health Association shows
Teen girls are more likely to
attempt suicide, but teenage
boys are more like to die by
suicide.
The National Institute of
Mental Health claims par-


ents and families can help.
Encourage enjoyable activi-
ties, exercise, engage in ac-
tivities to help others and
draw the focus away from
feelings of depression. Reas-
sure the teen that help is
available and encourage
them to see a professional.
You can learn more about
teen depression and suicide
as it will be the final topic of


discussion as the Friendship
House winds up its discus-
sions on brain disorders. On
April 4 the community will
be able to hear the interview
on WZEP Thursday morning
following The Country Store
at approximately 10:06 a.m.
TV24 (Bright House Channel
3) will air an interview at
6:50 a.m. and replay at 5:50
p.m. on Friday, April 5.

Can We Do More?


By ROBIN NEWTON
Working and living with
Alzheimer's and dementia pa-
tients has always been a com-
plex, heart-rendering responsi-
bility for professionals and fam-
ily members. Turner Stimpson
(Turnip, to his friends) has de-
veloped a new approach to this
task. In his book, "Love Spoken
Here", Stimpson describes the
"TURNIP" technique. TURNIP,
the acronym for his method,
stands for: Trust, Understand-
ing, Respect, Nurtured, Inner
Peace.
Stimpson has made a name
for himself in the field of
eldercare. He is the recipient of
the JC Penney Golden Rule
Award for his service to the eld-
erly in1989. In 2004, Stimpson
was the subject of a PBS docu-
mentary "Love Spoken Here: A
Day in the Life of Turnip. Ap-
proaching Alzheimer's with
Hope and Joy." He is currently
the Resident Care and Trans-
portation Coordinator at The
Pines at Davidson in Iredell
County, North Carolina.
Copies of the book and docu-
mentary can be purchased from
Stimpsonis website: http://

Another staff member
said that the move would be
quick because the inmates
themselves would be moved
first, and their property
separately, to prevent trans-
fer of contraband items to the
new facility.
Much of the fittings and
furnishng in the jail are
stainless steel, which a
staffer said is easier to keep
clean. The general color
scheme is gray, but some
natural light is allowed in
most areas. All areas of the
jail can be viewed on surveil-
lance monitors in centralized
command stations.
Next to a sally port, where
vehicles can be parked under
cover of a roof, is the gen-
eral intake area, with a a
long counter facing assorted
cells for high-risk inmates,
intoxylizer tests, and detoxi-
fication.

areas, can accommodate 324

any needs at schools which,

A DEDICATION CEREMONY was held last Thursday at the Sunrise Road well site in
DeFuniak Springs to celebrate the completion of the Phase II water expansion/upgrade.
Over 90,000 linier feet of the new lines have been laid, a 600 gallon per minute well is
operational and the new 500,000 gallon elevated water tank is operational. Storage capacity
has increased as has the amount of water being pumped and the lines the water is flowing
through. Part of the effort to increase the lines and water is to loop areas in the system
together. The facility on Sunrise will tie in the system north of town to those east and west
and provide additional redundancy for the entire water system, including downtown and
south of town. Mayor Pro-Temp Buddy Huffman told those gathered, as the city grows, so
does the need for water production and distribution and an increase in utility infrastructure
could mean more housing and businesses coming to the area.

Sinfonia presents "Russian Masters

in two concert evenings


INTERNATIONALLY AC-
CLAIMED CONCERT PIA-
NIST Anna Podusmiak will
perform two concerts with
Sin/bni Gulf Coast in April.
P/hoto /rom Sintonia.


Sinfonia Gulf Coast's
founding music director and
Conductor, Demetrius Fuller,
announced details of their
next concert, "Russian Mas-
ters," scheduled for April 6 at
the Emerald Coast Confer-
ence Center and April 7 at
the Panama City Marina
Civic Center.
"Russian Masters" will fea-
ture an evening of exciting
Russian orchestral music.
Ukranian-born international
award winning pianist Anna
Polusmiak will perform one
of the most difficult concer-
tos in the entire repertoire.
Sergei Rachmaninoff's "Con-
certo no. 3" for piano and or-
chestra featured in the
movie "Shine" is a tour de
force for both piano and or-
chestra. "The sheer magni-
tude of physical strength re-
quired from the soloist is
amazing and only pianists of
Anna's caliber can perform
this work," said Fuller.
Polusmiak is a rising star
in the younger generation of


pianists, having won first
prize at numerous interna-
tional piano competitions,
including the Corpus
Christi and Queen Anne
Competition in Belgium.
Polusmiak has performed
this season with the sym-
phonies of Cincinnati,
Kharkiv, and the Nether-
lands. She joins Sinfonia af-
ter recording her first CD
with the St. Petersburg Phil-
harmonic in Russia.
The evening also includes
Piotr Tchaikovsky's "Sym-
phony No. 5 in E minor", one
of the most beloved and
powerful symphonies of all'
time. "Russian Masters" will
offer passionate and power-
ful music performed by the
talented Sinfonia musi-
cians. Audience members
will also get a sample of
Sinfonia's offerings for the
2007-2008 season.
"We are pleased to an-
nounce Sinfonia's newest
education initiative for chil-
dren," said Fuller. "Thanks


to a generous benefactor, be-
ginning with our February
concert and at all 06-07
Sinfonia concerts, we will give
two free tickets for children
aged 5 17 for every paying
adult ticket. Everyone re-
members the first time they
experienced a live perfor-
mance, the feeling of being in
a theatre, the sights and
sounds of the different instru-
ments. It's a life-changing ex-
perience for many children."
The concert's sponsor is
Whitney National Bank;
guest artist sponsor is Gale
Culling, and presenting me-
dia sponsor is Cox Communi-
cations.
Tickets to "Russian Mas-
ters" are $20 and $30. For ev-
ery paid adult ticket, bring
two children, ages 5 17 for
free. For Destin/Ft. Walton

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, MARCH 29, 2007


By DR. ROBERT M. JAYE
In Matthew 8:5-10, there is
found the story of a Roman
centurion. Jesus said that
this centurion had a great
faith. Those who have faith
are rich. Faith is the coin for
anything from God that He
allows.
His faith was great when
you think of who he was. He
was not a Jew, but was famil-
iar with the Scriptures. How
could his faith be so great if
he had not believed all that
he had heard about Jesus?
Great faith is grown when we
face great difficulties. Use


faith abundantly and it will
grow.
Faith has to be great when
you think on the matter that
made this man seek out
Jesus. His slave was sick. He
believed that the power of
'hi i-t could reach the poor.
Little faith never takes little
troubles to God. It takes
great faith to bring anything
Itro'lilin to God in prayer.

This man had great faith
when you consider the re-
quest made. "Speak the work
only." No visit asked; no
means trusted. All the


centurion's desire would be
met with His word only!
Great faith asks for no signs,
but is satisfied with the
promise alone. God is faith-
ful to His word.
This man's faith was great
when you consider the result
that followed. "As thou hast
believed, so be it done unto
thee" (v.13). His simple,
large-hearted faith was an-
swered at once, and in full.
There was nothing left to be
desired. So wonderfully gra-
cious is our loving Lord that


He never sends the hungry
away empty.
This faith was great when
you consider the commenda-
tion given. "I have never
found so great faith." Jesus
knows exactly the measure of
our faith. What a precious
thing it is in His sight. Surely
the Lord loves to be trusted.
He saves all who believe in
Him (Acts 13:39). And re-
member, "Without faith it is
impossible to please Him"
(Hebrews 11:6). Trust Him
today.

Freeport wins 'Battle


of the Trotmans'


,By PATRICK CASEY
Perhaps it will be the an-
swer to a trivia question in
Walton County one day.
Question: What two
people faced off as head
coaches in what is believed
to be the first father-daugh-
ter battle on the softball dia-
mond?
Answer: Freeport Head
,Coach Charles Trotman and
his daughter, Karen, the
head coach of the Malone Ti-
*gers.
The two met as managers
in Freeport on Friday with
Freeport capturing all the
glory in a 15-0 win over the
Malone Tigers.
Freeport scored eight runs
in the bottom of the first to
take a lot of drama out of the
matchup with the winless Ti-
gers.
"We put ourselves in a big
hole early with all the er-
rors," Karen Trotman said


after the game. "We started
to play better the last two in-
nings." .
"We hadn't played Malone
since Karen was pitching for
us in the late 1990s," Charles
Trotman said after the game.
"They aren't that bad, they
have some talent and just got
off to a bad start today."
Jordan Howell pitched the
complete four-inning game
shutout as the Bulldogs im-
proved to 5-11 on the season.
Karen Trotman, who is in
her first year as Malone's
coach, saw her squad commit
12 errors in the game, but
settle down to slow
Freeport's onslaught after
the first two innings.
Trotman, who teaches sci-
ence as Malone, was the
pitcher for her father's team
at Freeport during her 1996-
99 seasons as a Freeport stu-
dent.
Charles Trotman, who has
coached the Freeport softball


Sports News and


team since 1996, is in his
twelfth season and has led
Freeport to the playoffs six
times, with two region final
appearances during his
coaching tenure.
"We had a lot of success in
1999 and 2003 and host the
district tournament at the
end of the season this year."
Freeport has had the most
success of any of the county's
schools since fast-pitch soft-
ball began statewide in 1994.
The Bulldogs just missed the
state tournament with a 3-2
loss to Chipley in the Class
2A region final in 2003.
Malone has not seen the
success in softball that it has
in basketball. The school has
only qualified for the playoffs
twice, with their last trip to
the playoff field in 1998.
"We are going to have to
work hard to establish a tra-
dition in the sport here
(Malone)," Karen Trotman

stated. "We have some talent,
but we had several players
who were on the state run-
ner-up basketball team, so


our transition time has been
short."
"We started talking about
playing after she got the job


last summer," the elder
Trotman stated. "I -got the
first one, but we still have to
go to Malone on Friday."

Gators headed


to final four


By CHUCK HINSON
Yoiu can say it was luck,
you can argue that it's just
their season, but Florida (33-
5) beat out another top-
seeded team and now is
headed to the final four next
Satruday. Florida got the nod
after beating Oregon, 85-77
Once again, Florida will
have the chance to defend
their title from 2006, when
they go up against UCLA in
the national semifinals, a
rematch of last year's cham-
pionship game.
Lee Humphrey made
seven three-pointers for the
Gators and finished with 23
points. Taureen Green
added 21 points to lead the
Gators in their overthrow of
Oregon.
The win was Florida's 16th


straight victory in the post
season. It includes one na-
tional championship and two
Southeastern Conference
titles.
Florida has already
achieved one of the top goals
in the school's athletic his-
tory, with championships in
both football and basketball.
The Gators will be attempt-
ing to make it two national
championships in-a-row in
NCAA basketball.
If the Gators can win an-
other basketball champion-
ship, they will make history
as the first team since Duke
won in 1991-92, to have back-
to-back basketball titles.

Roy Ramey, 92, caught a bass that his son, Allen, said
"weighed more than he did." Ramey said the bass was caught
March 21 in a private pond in north Walton County. This is
the one that 'didn't get away and that's no "fish tale."

Firearms found in

vehicle on south

Walton school property


The Walton County
Sheriff's Office (WCSO) has
arrested Alisha R. Delaney,
19, of Santa Rosa Beach; and
charged her with one count
of possession of firearms on
school property.
According to a. WCSO re-
lease, the school resource of-
ficer at South Walton High
School was conducting a rou-
tine parking lot vehicle/park-,
ing spot check when he saw
what he believed to be a shot-
gun leaning on the middle of
the front seat inside a ve-
hicle.
The principal was notified
and other school resource of-
ficers responded to assist.


PRESERVATION AND ENHANCEMENT-related plans for south Walton County's most
scenic roadway---the inspiration of this painting by local artist Justin Gaffrey---are now the
subject of much brainstorming as a community-based group continues in an effort to obtain
a state scenic designation for the county road.


Friends needed


for CR-30A


By DOTTY NIST
'There is wonderful citi-
zen support. We need a lot of
creative ideas and a lot of
hard work," said Claire
Bannerman.
Bannerman is the local
chairwoman for an ongoing
community-based effort to
obtain a state designation for
CR-30A in the Florida Scenic
Highway Program. The work
actually got started over
seven years ago and now ap-
pears near fruition.
In February, the CR-30A
Corridor Advocacy Group
(CAG) achieved the mile-
stone of seeing CR-30A's eli-
gibility application for the
designation program ac-
cepted for consideration by
the state.


Focused on preservation of
intrinsic resources, achieving
a balance between conserva-
tion and land use, enhancing.
quality of life, and conveying
Florida's "story" to travelers,
the program provides, among
other benefits, recognition of
local communities, economic
enhancement for local busi-
nesses, and increased eligi-
bility for grant funding to
provide improvements along
roadways, some examples
being nature trails and visi-
tor centers.
The Florida Scenic Bluffs
Highway in the Pensacola
area is a nearby example of
a state-designated Scenic
Highway.
While the state's accep-
tance of the application for

The vehicle's driver was es-
corted to the vehicle and
handed over the keys to the
vehicle. A thorough search
was conducted and disco'v-
ered a total of two unloaded
12-gauge shotguns, fifteen
12-gauge rounds, thirty five
.257 caliber rifle rounds,
sixty .223 caliber rifle
rounds, and a four inch
knife.
The vehicle driver,
Delaney, stated that the ve-
hicle belonged to her boy-
friend. She had been out

Two drownings


in south Walton


A 47-year-old Tallahassee
man was drowned while
kayaking with his teenage
son on March 22 at Grayton
Beach Park. An Illinois man
died later that same after-
noon off another stretch of
beach.
According a Walton
County Sheriff's Office
(WCSO) report, WCSO re-
ceived a water rescue call at
approximately 1 p.m. on
March 22. Emergency calls
indicatedthat there was an
overturned kayak in the wa-
ter that appeared to be in
trouble. Units from the
Beach Patrol Unit re-
sponded to the scene.
A man later identified as
William S. Cave, 55, of Tal-
lahassee, was apparently
kayaking with his son when
the kayak overturned. The
son was able to swim 75 100
yards to shore but the father


was not. For a short time,
Cave could hot be located in
the water. Local beachgoers
assisted with looking for him
from the shore. Once Cave
was seen in the water, a
South Walton Fire District
iSWFD) lifeguard and a
beach patrol deputy entered
the water to rescue him.
Cave was pulled to shore and
given CPR. Airheart was no-
tified and initiated,
After approximately 15
minutes of CPR with no re-
sponse, Cave was confirmed
dead, and was transported to
Sacred Heart on the Emer-
ald Coast until his family
could be notified and identify
him. The Medical
Examiner's office was also
sent to the hospital.

Neighbors contest 'amusement park'
.. ... . .. ..--- . .. ... .. . ...-


By DOTTY NIST
Bungee jumping, putt-
putt golf, rock climbing,
henna tattoos, segue courses
and water slides aren't nor-
mally associated with south
Walton County, but some of
these activities have been
ongoing within Sandestiri
Resort for over four years.
Neighboring property
owners in the resort are any-
thing but amused with what
they refer to as "an amuse-
ment park," and resort rep-
resentatives say is a vested
recreational facility, on a par-
cel just north of Beachside II
Condominium. The condo
complex is located on the,
south side of the resort near
the gulf.
The matter was discussed
at the March 22 Walton
County Zoning Board of Ad-
justments (ZBA) meeting.
Resort owners and residents
of Beachside II condomini-
ums had filed separate ap-
peals of a June 2006 admin-
istrative decision by Pat
Blackshear, county planning
and development services di-
rector, regarding the activi-
ties.
The ZBA task was to sort
through the appeals.
Blackshear had stated


that the recreational activi-
ties could '- and, in order to
exist, must'- be permitted
through minor development
orders. The planning director
said she was staying consis-
tent with previous assur-
ances to the resort by her
predecessor Mike Lane.
Sandestin Resort was ap-
proved decades ago as a de-
velopment of regional impact
(DRI). Blackshear noted
that, although she disagrees,
Walton County has tradition-
ally dealt with changes
within DRIs, including the
addition of 20-plus-story con-
dominiums, as minor devel-
opments.
Minor developments gen-
erally do not require ap-
proval in public session by
the Walton County Planning
Commission and County
Commission but instead are
permitted through the plan-
ning department, in recent
years via the planning
department's Technical Re-
view Committee.
In 2003 former Planning
Director Mike Lane had
called for a notice of proposed
change (NOPC) from the re-
sort in conjunction with the
approval process on the ac-
tivities in question, which

were ongoing at that time.
According to testimony at
the ZBA mee ting, in 2004 the
resort had filed a NOPC in-
cluding a lot. split and other
changes in connection with
the currently disputed recre-
ational users, but subse-
quently withdrew the NOPC
and has to date not fulfilled
this requirement.
Blackshear stated that she
still expects the resort to sub-
mit an NOP'C.

Representatives of the re-
sort had come before the ZBA
to contest Blackshear's mi-
nor development order re-
quirement for the "recre-
ational area" activities--and
the Beachside II residents


and their attorneys were
present to argue that the ac-
tivities should not be al-
lowed, period.

Armed burglary



suspect caught


THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, MARCH 29, 2007
4 ,.- "z. _
.-- ... .. .


The Walton County
Sheriff's Office (WCSO) ar-
rested Armando Ortiz, 24, of
Mary Esther, late on the
night of March 24, and
charged him with one count
of armed burglary and one
count of carrying a concealed
firearm.
At approximately 11 p.m.,
on March 24, an emergency
call was received in reference
to an individual described as
wearing all black, with a
black bandana covering his
face and brandishing a
weapon, who had broken into
an occupied home on Ellis
Road in Santa Rosa Beach.
According to the call, the


PARK
these are illegal operations,"
asserted attorney David
Theriaque, representing
Beachside II residents and
Jim Whatley, described as an
owner of property adjacent to
the site of the "amusement
park."
Theriaque contended that
any approval of "club use"
amenities as part of the.
Sandestin DRI could not
have been authorization for
"Big Kahuna's, small version
in Sandestin."
"This is simply an amuse-
ment park," Theriaque said.
"All that's missing is the
bearded lady," he added.
Theriaque stated that the
activities are inconsistent
with the "world renowned re-
sort" that his clients had in-
vested their money to live in,
and that the "amusement
park" interferes with quiet
enjoyment of their property.
Representing the resort,
attorney William Hyde ar-
gued that, as a third party,
the Beachside II owners were
not allowed by code to chal--


individual, later identified as
Ortiz, forcibly entered the
residence, pointed a loaded 9
mm handgun at residents,
and began searching the
home for valuables.
The report went on to
state that once Ortiz had
gathered several items, he
left the scene. All deputies in
the area were put on alert
looking for the suspect and
his vehicle. The vehicle was
located in the parking lot be-
hind' the Gulf Winds Condo,
with an individual nearby.
Ortiz was detained until
further investigation was
made. The investigation led


FROM FRONT


lenge Blackshear's adminis-
trative decision.
"This entity doesn't have
the standing to raise the ar-
gument," he said.
Hyde also made the case
that the facilities were allow-
able resort amenities, since
the parcel in question had
always been designated for
"club use" in prior develop-
ment orders, and, further,
that the use is legal since the
parcel had been in existence
before the county adopted its
first land use regulations.
After over an hour's dis-
cussion, the ZBA unani-
mously reached the decision
that their members lacked
jurisdiction to rule on the ap-
peals. Their motion stated
that, due to the fact that no
NOPC had been approved for
the change of use, there was
no way for them to make a
judgment on the status of the
activities.
Concurrent with the ap-
peals, a code enforcement
,case, regarding.the disputed
"activities has been in pro-


to the discovery of a loaded 9
mm Higlhpoint pistol in the
driver's door panel on the ve-
hicle. Or'tiz was then taken
into custody.
Further investigation into
the contents of the vehicle led
to the dis cover of a safe, a
black bandana, a large sum
of cash, a plastic container
containing a substance sus-
pected to be crack cocaine
and other drug parapherna-
lia.
Only once of the five people
in the hom e at the time of the
incident suffered minor inju-
ries and was treated on the
scene.

Responding to a complaint
in spring of 2006, Walton
County Coide Enforcement
personnel had paid a visit to
the site, resulting in
Sandestin Resort being
charged with the alleged vio-
lation of operating "a com-
mercial business [amuse-
ment park]...without a devel-
opment order or building per-
mits."
The resort has contested
the existence of a violation.
A stop-work order was
placed on the property on
June 1 by code enforcement.
On March 21, according to
Walton County Code En-
forcement Officer J.C. Alford,
the "amusement park" was
observed to be continuing op-
eration and ilt was found that
previously posted stop-work
notices had been removed.
Alford said he and fellow of-
ficer Buddy Wright posted
new notices and advised per-
sonnel "that they needed to
shut the park down."

A dispute between Gulf
Cemetery Association mem-
bers and several cemetery
plot owners has been re-
solved dependent on certain
stipulations, according to the
plaintiffs' attorney Allen
Ramey.
The dispute involved 2.5
acres of the cemeteries north-
ern boundary. Developers
Crystal Clear Development
Inc. of Santa Rosa Beach;
Core Development Group
LLC of Tampa; and TalMar
Developme t LLC of


Marietta, Ga., had originally
wanted the property to pro-
vide ingress and egress to 55
acres of land they own adja-
cent to the' cemetery. The de-
velopers were then to provide
irrigation services and road
improvement to the cem-
etery. The plaintiffs did not
feel this to be an equitable
agreement.
According to Ramey, the
plaintiffs in the case have
agreed to dismiss the suit if
the association will agree not
to go forward with the road,
properly incorporate as a not-


for-profit 501.3C, and agree
to create by-laws calling for
new directors by Aug. 31.
"This is great that the suit
has been stopped," said Jas-
per I. Dennison. "In my opin-
ion, the future of the cem-
etery is dependent on the
board initiating business
principles in the operation of
the cemetery immediately."
The 40-acre Gulf Cem-
etery off of CR-393 in Santa
Rosa Beach rests on land
deeded in 1915 to the asso-
ciation by the federal govern-
ment.


Southern Living selects

WaterSound for 2007 Idea House


Southern Living magazine
has selected the St. Joe Com-
pany to develop its 2007
Southern Living Idea House
- at WaterSound, the third and
newest neighborhood within
WaterSound. WaterSound is
located three miles from
WaterSound Beach on U.S.
98, just north of CR-30A in
northwest Florida.
lnSlated for completion in
May 2007, the Idea House
will open for public tours in
early summer 2007 and
serve as a public showcase
for lifestyle and design ideas
in the August 2007 issue of
Southern Living and for
those visiting northwest
Florida this summer.
Inspired by historic coastal
maritime architecture, this
Looney, Ricks, Kiss-designed
Southern Living Idea House
combines the comfort of a
vacation home with features
that suit the lifestylesof
today's families.
"We are pleased to be work-
ing with St. Joe again this
year on what will be another
interesting and innovative
home design project," said
Bill McDougald, vice presi-
dent and executive director
of the Southern Progress
Homes Group. "The location
is great for anyone visiting
the area or considering a
move. They can see all the at-
tributes of a family-focused
community come together at
WaterSound."
"The Southern Living Idea
House will be located near
the hub of WaterSound,
known as the Village Com-
mons. This area will offer a
family pool and a fitness cen-
ter," said Rod Wilson, presi-
dent, West Florida Region,
the St. Joe Company.
The two-story Home faces
the community's'nine-hole
golf course. The home's 3,600
square feet of interior space
includes three bedrooms and
four baths, plus a bunk,room.
A spacious kitchen flows


into the dining and living ar-
eas, which provide wide-open
spaces for social gatherings
and entertaining.
Another 800 square feet is
dedicated to an expansive,
eight-foot-wide wrap-around
front porch with deep over-
hangs facing open park
spaces.
The Southern Living Idea
House was built by
Ridgeland, S.C. based Haven
Custom Homes. Haven vice
president Stephen Bassett
says the new home at
WaterSound was produced
and finished offsite in 150-


180 days versus building it
onsite, which -would take up
to 15 months.
"We can produce homes
that are developed in sec-
tions offsite in a dry, climate-
controlled, indoor environ-
ment, which protects the con-
struction frorn possible in-
clement weather conditions,"
said Bassett. "'The entire pro-
cess is cleaner, less invasive,
and more environmentally-
friendly to build, since it's
mostly built offisite, except for
the finishes. Our homes are
also built to withstand up to
140-mile-an-hour winds."

SWCC meeting for the birds


By LEAH STRATMANN
Those in attendance at the
meeting of the South Walton
Community Council last
week learned, among other
things, that this region has
no seagulls. That's because
there is no such thing as a
seagull, according to
Audubon Society expert
Thelma Phillips. There are
gulls aplenty, but it is people
who have added the word
"sea" to gull.
Using slides, Phillips in-
formed the audience that the
most common gulls along the
coast are laughing gulls
found in coastal regions from
Texas up to the Carolinas.
Assisted by Nonnie Maines,
of Nonie, AK., the voice of the
laughing gull was heard,
which sounds a great deal
like a high-pitched human
laugh. Other gulls found here
include the herring gull, and
the ring-billed gull. Water
birds found in the region in-
clude the great blue heron,
terns, skimmers, plovers,
willets, and the great and


snowy egrets.
According to some litera-
ture provided by the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission (FFWCC),
many species including gulls,
terns, skimmers, plovers,
willets and oyster-catchers
nest on the beach, making
them vulnerable. When
people or animals disturb the
beach-nesting birds, eggs
and chicks in the nests are
exposed to the extremes of
temperature and predators.
Some bird species that nest
on the beach are being deci-
mated by this disruption of
nesting activities.
Boats, beach-goers and do-
mesticated pets now inhabit
formerly isolated beaches
and islands. Eggs and chicks
of beach-nesting birds blend
in with their surroundings
and are nearly invisible on
the ground, making it easy to
unwittingly crush the eggs or
kill the young chicks.
According to the litera-
ture, "if birds appear agi-
tated or take flight, you are


too close. Some birds such as
terns and skimmers require
a 600-foot comfort zone dur-
ing the breeding season,
while other species are more
tolerant of disturbances."
There are a number of
measures people can take to
help the nesting birds such
as never forcing birds to fly.
Instead, walk or steer around
the birds to avoid disturbing
them. Beach walkers should
also keep pets on a leash,
keep out of posted areas, and
avoid running watercraft
close to the shoreline. Fur-
ther, since many people don't
realize their action may
harm wildlife, FFWCC rec-
ommends educating those
seen engaging in activities
that may prove harmful to
wildlife.
To protect young beach
nesting birds, the FFWCC
says adult beach-nesting
birds are protective of their
eggs and young. When hu-
mans disturb a nesting area
we are seen as a danger to
worried adult birds. In at-


tempting to keep us away
from chicks and eggs, an
adult bird may pretend to
have a broken wing to lure
predators away or attempt to
drive out interlopers by call-
ing out, dive-bombing or def-
ecating on beach-goers. If
any of these things happen
to you while on the beach,
you are too close to a nesting
area and the FFWCC says
you should slowly walk away
while keeping your eyes on
the beach to make sure you
do not step on eggs or chicks.
Backyard birds were not
overlooked in the presenta-
tion. Using slides and
sounds; Phillips provided ex-
amples of cardinals, a:vari-
ety of finches, swallows, blue
jays, chickadees, wrens,
woodpeckers and thrushes.
Several varieties of each of
these birds can be found at
backyard feeders.
To participate in local bird
walks or learn more about
regional birds, .call the
Audubon Society, 862-9588
or visit www.choctawhatchee

roll onto the lawn, all shined
and buffed, for attendees and
car enthusiasts to look over,
ask questions about and pro-
vide a history of the automo-
bile and its progress from de-
cades gone by.
Classic and vintage auto-
mobiles will take over the
grassy lawns at Rosemary
Beach for the sixth year, dis-
playing their exquisite
chrome detail, engines that
were originally installed in
the vehicle, the craftsman-.
ship of the interiors, and the
numerous styles that set
those cars apart from the
vehicles mass-produced in
the 1980s and'90s. The event
not only gives those attend-
ing a chance to learn more
about the vintage and an-
tique car era, and brings to-
gether generations of enthu-
siasts and car buffs.

FREINDS FROM FRONT


hat same day, just west of the
Whale's Tail restaurant in
Miramar Beach. Emergency
calls said that there were ap-
proximately four people in
the water that appeared to
be in distress. Two bystand-
ers on the beach each went
into the water to assist.
One of the good samaritans
was able to rescue one of the
four people, while two others,
on a raft, floated back into


shore, and the last swam
back on her own. One of the
good samaritans did not
make it back to shore. He is
believed to have been swim-
ming against a combination
of a rip current and a long
shore current. Other by-
standers, entered the water
to rescue him., and a life-
guard entered the water and
brought him back to shore.
Deputies from the beach pa-


trol assisted fire/rescue units
from SWFD in getting the
victim off the beach and with
crowd control.
CPR was conducted, and
the victim was transported to
Sacred Heart on the Emerald
Coast. Airheart touched
down and was standing by at
Sacred Heartfor further
emergency transport. The
victim, identified as Scott D.
Johnson, 47, of Urbana, IL,
was pronounced dead at the
hospital.
The swimming conditions


designation for the entire
beach prior to this incident
was single red flag. Under
single red flag, swimming is
permitted, but swimmers
must use extreme caution.
After this incident, it was
immediately changed to
double red flag swimming
conditions, meaning that no
swimming or wading is per-
mitted.
Authorities said that these
were the first drownings in
the area for this tourist sea-.
son.

"The Last Five Years," a




sad and, musical tale


By BRUCE COLLIER
Seaside Repertory Theatre's (SRT) 2007 season has
opened, with a four-person cabaret-style musical, "The Last
Five Years," with words and music by Jason Robert Brown.
: The company consists of actor/singers Jennifer Steele
Saunders and Jerry Cappadona, Bill Podley on piano and
Chris McLamb on cello. SRT artistic director Craige Hoover
directs.
The play is not the usual musical, with dialogue punctu-
ated and reinforced by songs and dance numbers. It's all
singing, and limited movement. The set is spare, with virtu-
ally no props and platforms serving as chairs, beds, etc. Brown
also puts a spin on the dramatic unities by telling the story
- the rise and fall of a romance and marriage at chrono-
logical opposites.
The characters, Cathy and Jamie, begin the play at oppo-
site ends of their story she at the end, he at the beginning.
For her, the story plays out backwards, from breakup to first
date. For him, it's the other way around, from hopeful an-
ticipation to resigned disappointment.
SRT regulars will be familiar with Rep's house and stage'
layout. For newcomers, it's intimate, with no seat more than
a few feet from the performers. As a result, the actors must
rely on their own lungpower, without microphones. This led
to a few lost lyrics at the beginning, but the actors and mu-
sicians made adjustments and the problem was solved.
There's so much ground covered, and no spoken dialogue, so
everything needed for the story comes out in song.
Cathy and Jamie both reside in New York. He is a college
student, working toward a career as a novelist. She is an
aspiring actress. As the play progresses, he finds critical and
financial success, while she plugs away, finding work mostly
out-of-town, and enduring rejection after rejection at count-
less cattle-call auditions.
The two begin to drift apart, dragged by their disparate


fortunes. She complains of the endless parties and demands
on his time as a successful author. He fails to understand
her apparent desire to keep him all to herself. Deception
and betrayal follow.
"The Last Five Years" is a sorrowful little tale. It may be
intentional the piece is reportedly based on Brown's own
life but Jamie comes off as what used to be known as a cad.
He's an amusing, educated, and apparently talented cad, but
a cad nonetheless. Cathy is rather plaintive, hopeful that
her dream romance will necessarily be followed by a dream
marriage. Both start out as romantics, but Jamie sheds all
that when his career takes off. Cathy does not.
This is a high-energy piece, swiftly-paced and demanding
precision of execution. The show also requires the actors to
"act" with virtually no contact with each other. Each song is
a self-contained scene, with the singers advancing their side
of the story all on their own. That takes a great deal of focus,
to maintain the emotion and technical demands of the score.
Fortunately, Saunders and Cappadona have the concen-
tration. Saunders is a wonderful actress, equally skilled at
comedy and pathos, with a voice both sweet and worldly.
Cappadona makes a smooth and believable transition from
awkward novice writer to self-centered and deceptive liter-
ary celebrity.
Musicians Podley and McLamb serve as a sort of fourth
"character," keeping things moving and contributing to the
overall ensemble feel of the production. Actors and musi-
cians alike rise to the play's challenges, and the evening never
drags.
This is an intimate show, about a very small slice of two
lives, and the Rep venue is ideally suited for its presenta-
tion.
"The Last Five Years" will run Wednesdays Saturdays
at 7:30 p.m., through April 14, at the Seaside Meeting Hall
Theatre. For information or reservations, call 231-0733.
