Coyote


Landfill


updade


given

By DOTTY NIST
Officials say they are now
considering whether to re-
new Coyote Landfill's state
permit..
At the request of the Wal-
ton County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC),
Florida Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection (DEP)
officials Dick Fancher,
Marshall Seymore, Mike
Kennedy and Sally Cooey
provided a report regarding
the Freeport area landfill on
April 10. This was at a pub-
lic workshop preceding the
regular county commission
meeting that afternoon.
Coyote Landfill is located,
on Hwy. 20 east of Freeport.
According to DEP district
director Fancher, the busi-
ness has been operating
without a permit since 2006,
after DEP denied the
landfill's request for permit
renewal.
Fancher explained that
DEP had denied the permit
due to Coyote's failure to fur-
nish in a timely manner a
site assessment report
(SAR), which the state re-
quired due to the level of con-
taminants having been de-
tected in the landfill's moni-
toring wells and surface wa-
ter compliance sites.
The SAR was submitted
last month, and DEP officials
are now reviewing it.
Fancher said Coyote Landfill
was charged a penalty fee for
being late in turning in the

report.
He explained that the
state program requiring
groundwater monitoring of
landfills to guard against
contamination has been in
existence since 1997.
The commissioners said
they had asked for the up-
date from DEP after receiv-
ing a number of complaint
calls about the landfill.
Gary Billingsley, a neigh-
bor of the landfill, told the
commissioners and state of-
ficials that odor coming from
the landfill has been so bad
at times that he and his wife
have been unable to stay in
their home.
Billingsley added that
regulation of landfills by the
state has not been satisfac-
tory because of the time it
takes for DEP to investigate
complaints.
"Sometimes it takes two
weeks before they get out
from Pensacola...they don't
have a 'right-there' solution,"
he explained.
Billingsley said that some-
times odor problems are not
present any more once DEP
personnel arrive at the land-


fill to investigate.
He noted that there are
three landfill sites in Free-
port "in hollering distance of
each other," compounding
the problem.
Billingsley urged the com-
missioners to look at a zon-
ing solution to separate land-
fills---and he suggested get-
ting them "under some kind
of local control" so that
county personnel could
quickly investigate prob-
lems.
Fancher said DEP will ex-
pect an odor monitoring plan
from Coyote Landfill, the
first such plan to be required
in the state.
He commented that find-
ing the source of the odor and
removing it "would be ideal"
but that adding cover may be
used as a solution if it is ef-
fective.
If not, "they'll have to
come up with another rem-
edy," Fancher said, adding
"they'll need to do something
else immediately."
He noted that DEP may
-have additional recommen-
dations for the facility once
the SAR has been evaluated.


THE PAXTON TOWN COUNCIL hepetitions and proposals.


Paxton council considers petitions


By REID TUCKER
The Paxton Town Council
enjoyed a night of unanimous
aprovals with very little real
discussion taking place. For
the most part, the council
simply heard a few petitions
and proposals of myriad na-
ture from several Paxton
residents.
The entire council was
present, though city attorney
LoriAnn Bytell didn't arrive
until the meeting had pro-
gressed.
After the meeting was
called to order and the last
meeting's minutes and the
cities monthly bills were ap-
proved, the council heard the
first of its presentations. The
Walton County Youth
Ambassadors,miss Walton
County Rhapsody Bogart,
and the winners of the other
age groups of the Miss Wal-
ton County pageant made a
presentation before the coun-
cil, making themselves avail-
able for any service project
Paxton might require of


them.
Jack Jacopetti, made the
final proposal for his
company's back-up genera-
tors under consideration by
the council. Jacopetti said
that a "top-end figure" would
run up a $3,240 bill for the
city, and that this particular
generator was "a downsized
unit with less fuel capacity."
The generator also features
a manual transfer switch, a
decision that Jacopetti said
was part of his intent to "try
to keep the cost down, while
still providing enough power
for roughly 80 percent of the
building air conditioning,
everything."
The council members had
a few questions for Jacopetti
before they approved the
purchase of one of the new
generators for the Town Hall.
Councilman Bobby Kemp
said that his main concern
was that "the engine be one
that does not require a per-
son to manually operate it."
Kemp, who also works at the


local EMS office, said that
the generator in use at that
location with an automatic
transfer switch is "a fine
piece of machinery."
Jacopetti's figure showed
that a simimlarly-equipped
generator would cost the
council $4,300. In spite of the
increased cost, the council
decided in favor of this
model, due to its auto-sens-
ing power outage transfer
switch. Coucnilman Bill
McRae made a motion to buy
the generator, which was sec-
onded by Kemp and Council-
woman Ann Sexton. The mo-
tion passed unanimously.
The only remaining action to
be taken on the matter was
that of the grant given the
city by Walton County, one
that did not allow for the in-
creased expenditure. Sexton
remedied this with a motion
to pay the difference, which
again unanimously carried.

By BEN GRAFTON
At Freeport's City Council
meeting of April 10, devel-
oper Jeff Glover, reacting to
the recent surge of publicity
about the use of palm trees
to landscape developments in
the City, asked the Council
to approve his request to
change the name of the Palm
Shadows development to The
Verandas ofFreeport. Glover
said he agreed with the city's
position on limiting the use
of palm trees and that the
new name would be more ap-
propriate. The request was
approved.,
City Planner Latilda
Henninger gave council
members an advanced draft
of the Comprehensive Plan
Evaluation and Report
(EAR) material prepared by
the Institute for Senior Pro-
fessionals (ISP) Committee
with assistance and input of
a local private sector group.
The draft includes material
about shortcomings in the
Comp Plan gathered in pub-
lic meetings and individual
interviews. The material is
ready to be reviewed in a
scoping meeting that is
scheduled for April 17.
The top three issues in the
draft are: First, traffic prob-
lems including funding, hur-
ricane evacuation and four-
laning of the U.S. 331 by-


pass at Freeport. Second,
economic development prob-
lems including attainable
housing. And third, future
land use problems including
historic preservation issues.
Mayor Mickey Marsd
opened a discussion on the
problem of lot splits (division
of parcels) in already estab-
lished sub-divisions. This led
into a discussion that in-
cluded Henninger's request
for new public hearings to
gather input for revising ex-
isting zoning categories:
Marse then said he is not
sure new zoning categories
.are required and he asked
the council to consider the
problems involved.
Jack Rhodes, consultant
for the Hammock Bay devel-
opment stated that he
thought development densiz
ties could be addressed as a
part of the EAR work. He
said language could be incor-
porated into the Comp Plan
that would provide for rules
of building densities in old
and new subdivision plats.
Henninger said that prob-
lems have developed in some
instances when developers
have released their design
engineers as soon as devel-
opment orders are issued':-

Grantham administrative

hearing set for June 6


By BRUCE COLLIER
Walton County Sheriff's
Office (WCSO) deputy
Johnny Grantham will go
before an administrative law
judge on June 6, in the Wal-
ton County Courthouse. The
hearing, set at Grantham's
request, will determine
whether Grantham falsified
two official documents in
January of 2006.
The allegedly falsified
documents were a sworn
complaint to the Florida Eth-
ics Commission, and a sworn
voluntary statement form.
The hearing was set fol-
lowing the filing of an admin-
istrative complaint by the
Criminal Justice Standards
and Training Commission.
The complaint was filed No-
vember 15, 2006. Grantham
responded with a written de-
nial, and formally requested
the administrative hearing


through counsel of record,
James R. Murray.
This proceeding is admin-
istrative, not criminal.
Grantham has not been
charged, nor is he being in-,
vestigated, for criminal ac-
tivity.
The violations are alleged
to have occurred on January
18 and 19, 2006. Grantham
had been employed as an in-
vestigator with DeFuniak
Springs Police Department
(DFSPD) before his resigna-
tion in December of 2006.
On January 18, Grantham
filed a sworn ethics com-
plaint against DFSPD Lt.
Greg Gandy, alleging that
Gandy had deliberately dis-
connected a tail light follow-
ing a traffic stop, to provide
cause to stop the vehicle
later. Grantham claimed to
have the incident on video
tape. Gandy denied discon-
necting the light.


The second alleged viola-
tion was Grantham's execu-
tion of a sworn statement, in
Gandy's presence, account-
ing for various items of evi-
dence found in Grantham's
desk drawer while cleaning
out his desk. All accounts
indicate that Gandy was ac-
tually not present.
Internal investigations
made by DFSPD and WCSO
reached differing conclu-
sions. In March of 2006, The
Ethics Commission dis-
missed Grantham's com-
plaint against Gandy.
In May of 2006, The
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement ordered a re-
view of all documents. A
probable cause determina-
tion hearing in November, on
the two issues of alleged fal-
sification, led to a finding of
probable cause to proceed to
an administrative complaint.
Grantham elected to ask

Freeport woman

convicted of DUI

manslaughter


By BRUCE COLLIER
Jennifer Lynn Highers,
37, of Freeport, has been con-
victed of two felony charges
in the May 12 death of Bruce
Allen Bates, also a Freeport
resident.
A jury found Highers
guilty as charged of one
count of DUI manslaughter
and one count of leaving the
scene of a fatal accident.
Bates died after reportedly
being struck several times by
a vehicle operated by
Highers.
Assistant State Attorney
James Parker prosecuted the
case, which was heard by


Circuit Judge Kelvin Wells
last week. Ashley Herndon
represented Highers.
Assistant state attorney
Greg Anchors said that each
felony carries a maximum
potential penalty of 15 years,
leaving Highers facing a po-
tential prison term of 30
years. Anchors said that the
state has not yet decided
what its position will be on
sentencing, but added that
the charges do not carry a
minimum sentence.
Highers was taken into
custody pending her sentenc-
ing hearing, scheduled for
May 31.


Injured Freeport


man identified


By BRUCE COLLIER
A man found lying injured
near a Freeport produce
stand last week has been
identified. Walton County
Sheriff's Office investigators
reported that the man is Rob-
ert E. Poole, 50, of Freeport.
Poole was found early on
the morning of Monday, April
9, lying under a tarpaulin
near Cotton's produce stand,
with several apparent stab


wounds and bruises. He was
transported to Pensacola's
Sacred Heart Hospital in
critical condition, and re-
mained sedated and uncon-
scious for several days.
Last Friday, WCSO re-
ported that he had regained
consciousness and was able
to communicate with inves-
tigators. The WCSO is treat-
ing the case as a criminal in-
vestigation.

has donated money for phone
cards for the veterans in the

well.
Stone's service to the vet-

ago at the side of her grand-
mother, Katherine Lewis

Representatives reveal new property tax bill


By SHEENA FOSTER
WMBB-TV 13
Representative Marti
Coley (R-Marianna) and
Jimmy Patronis Jr. (R-
Panama City) visited Florida
State University's Panama
City campus this week to re-
veal a new bill in the House
that aims to spell quick re-
lief to property tax-weary
Floridians.
"Two years ago, three
years ago, nobody had prob-
lems with their property
taxes," Jimmy Patronis, Jr.
told today's town hall audi-
ence.
"We've got a proposal that
we think- is a pretty sound
proposal," said Coley to the
crowd of 50.
That proposal is a bill
called HJR 7089 and it pro-


poses a rollback of property
taxes from 2000 to 2001 or
from 2003 to 2004. Both rep-
resentatives call the latter a
more likely possibility.
With the 2000 to 2001 roll-
back, "it also gives you an
opportunity as voters to come
back and say on a constitu-
tional amendment to simply
do away with property
taxes," Coley continued.
A one-cent sales tax to
make up for local
government's lost revenue, is
an also a proposal under HJR
7089.
Audience members were
vocal about their long-stand-
ing problems and offered up
suggestions for the lawmak-
ers to take back to Tallahas-
see.
Bay Tax Foundation, Inc.


"It also gives you an opportunity, as vot-
ers, to come back and say on a constitutional
amendment to simply do away with prop-
erty taxes," Rep. Marti Coley


President Lee Sullivan sug-
gested that legislators con-
sider mirroring property
taxes with the predictability
of impact fees.
. "It is constant, it is paid,
it makes no difference where
it is located, everybody un-
derstands what they're pay-
ing, everybody understands
what they're paying when


they buy, everybody under-
stands what they're getting,
the government knows what
it's going to receive when
growth occurs," Sullivan
said.
He added that on April 17
at 11:30 a.m. central time he
will lead Bay Taxpayer mem-
bers to the capitol stairs to
rally against property taxes.


A member of another tax-
payer watchdog group,
Stephanie Somerset re-
counted numerous accounts
from those crushed by their
property tax payments.
"We spoke with one
woman who moved here from
Birmingham and when she
bought her house, the taxes
were 600 dollars but then the
cap went off, the taxes went
up to 1,800 dollars. Now the
house is back on the market.


She's going to have to sell it
to move back to Alabama,"
she said.
For all the comments they
listened to today, Coley and
Patronis will waste no time
in taking that wisdom back
to Tallahassee. They said the
issue could be debated on the
House floor as soon as
Wednesday, Apr. 18. The
spring Florida Legislative
Session ends the first week
in May.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

EIlTO''S COMMENT

No apology needed
yIv ?IONKELLEY


At i-irst, I was just going
to s,,i.;st hl' run for the U.S.
House or Senate, Now I think
we ought to send him to the
WX Iite House.
Florida Representative
Don Brown ruffled some
ftfathers last week when he
sent an e-mail to other House
legislators that contained a
humorous admonition:
"Don't forget to pay your
taxes ... 12 million illegal
aliens are depending on you!"
Not surprisingly, some
south Florida Hispanic rep-
resentatives took offense.
Some talked about some kind
of punishment for Rep.
Brown's insensitivity. Brown
then apologized for offending
them. That should have been
the end of it, but it wasn't.
As Latino leaders contin-
ued to appear shocked and
appalled, Rep. Brown cleared
the air. He held a news con-
ference saying that he had
only apologized for offending
some Florida lawmakers, not
for the message itself. In
Brown's mind, and in the
view of many Americans, il-
legal is illegal. He also talked
about the drain on Florida's
resources and services and
its impact on the economy.
No stranger to contro-
versy, Brown lost key posi-
tions on state committees af-
ter he voted against the
state's lackluster insurance
"reform" bill. An insurance
broker himself, he stated
publicly that the plan would
not address the problem, for
which he was punished leg-
islatively.
: Rep. Brown has now done
what few other lawmakers
have been willing to do ask
the tough questions about il-
legal immigration and de-
mand action based on those
answers.
Rep. Brown said he will
ask Gov. Charlie Crist to or-
der an investigation to deter-
mine how many illegal immi-
grants are in Florida and
what the impact is from that
regarding hospitals, schools,
jails, housing and public ser-
vices. Rep. Brown didn't stop
there. He says he would pro-
pose a resolution from the
Florida Legislature to Pres.
Bush calling for a deporta-
tion program and full fund-
ing for a fence on the Ameri-
can-Mexican border.
Gov. Crist may not be anx-
ious to find himself in the
middle of such a controversy
so early in his term. In re-
sponse to Brown's statement,
he replied, "I would welcome
the good representative to do
what he thinks is right.
Maybe he could put forward
a bill to allow for more fund-
ing of such an investigation
and see if we sign it."
Latino officials insist that


illegal aliens pay sales tax
and other taxes that have a
positive effect on the country,
but some national studies
disagree.
"If we can find out they
are a positive contribution ...
that doesn't change the fact
they are illegal," Brown said.
"Illegal, illegal, illegal, what
does that mean?"
According to the Federa-
tion for American Immigra-
tion Reform (FAIR) and the
Bear Stearns research firm,
illegal aliens receive $30 bil-
lion annually in services,
avoid $35 billion in taxes and
send another $20 billion
back home to Mexico, Cuba
and other places. That's a
total cost to our economy of
$85 billion every year.
In Florida, the most re-
cent estimate of the resident
illegal immigrant population
in Florida by the INS was
337,000 persons. Using
FAIR's estimate of Florida's
illegal alien population in
2005, the total illegal immi-
grant public school popula-
tion would be about 97,725
students. Using the estimate
of the illegal K-12 immigrant
population, the estimated
cost to Florida's taxpayers is
at least $.67 billion per year.
Florida's admission of il-
legal aliens into the state's
public universities and com-
.munity colleges at taxpayer
subsidized in-state tuition
rates is an additional ex-
pense not included in the
above calculation. The esti-
mate of that outlay in
Florida is that it could be
costing the taxpayers $38 to
$49million per year.
The strain on health ser-
vices is also unmistakable.
The estimated emergency
medical outlays are about
$51 to $66 million per year.
Then there is the crime.
By 2008, approximately
267,000 illegal aliens were
incarcerated in U.S. correc-
tional facilities. In fiscal
2004, the federal govern-
ment spent $1.4 billion to
incarcerate criminal aliens.
All costs are ultimately
funded by you, the taxpay-
ers.
By the way, 1.1 million il-
legal immigrants are ex-
pected to enter America this
year.
With liberals and Latinos
working hard to legalize mil-
lions of unwanted illegal
aliens, Rep. Don Brown's
stance is to be admired and
commended. As author
George Orwell wrote,
"Speaking the truth in times
of universal deceit is a revo-
lutionary act."

Thank you, Don, for firing
the first shot in Florida's
revolution.

Editor,
This is in response to all comments, articles, and rumors
about the "changing" of he Paxton mascot. I believe that what
the community and Alumni of Paxton need to understand is
that even though the baseball and softball uniforms use a
different profile of the Paxton Bobcat, the mascot is still a
bobcat and the meaning remains the same.
Many may ask what I mean by saying the meaning is the
same. The Paxton Bobcat stands for strength, teamwork,
dedication, loyalty, and respect. All these things are taught
at Paxton no matter what the bobcat looks like. I know this,
because I am a student there. I also know that anyone who
thinks that firing two great leaders at Paxton High School,
does not understand anything about what Paxton stands for.
Mr. Anderson has led our school to an all time high in aca-
demics and our athletic director, Coach Gilbert, has led us to
greater athletic achievements. I believe the changing of these
two respected leaders would be far worse than changing the
profile of what will always be Bobcat.
If anyone is still complaining about the baseball and soft-
ball uniforms, well, it is clear that those people do not attend
any games or support our teams. If they did, they wouldn't
be concerned about how the Bobcat looks. They would be
more concerned about supporting our boys and girls and giv-
ing them what they deserve new uniforms without all the
fuss. As for the future generations of Paxton, well, as a cur-
rent one, I can assure you not to worry about this "tradition."
New traditions will start and as much as people would like
to try to stop it, it can't be stopped.
From a true believer who knows what Paxton stands for.
Sincerely,
Logan Golden
(. L,,, .. Paxton High School

Editor,
As of Jan. 1, 2007 (start date with no stop date) the Florida
Insurance Office put an emergency assessment on all auto
policies of one percent of the whole premium, so the catas-
trophe fund can be financially stable. Hang in there, FEMA,
and take this lesson. The state thieved from 'we the people'
who drives right behind our backs without even blinking an
eye. We'll let some other entity assess it for us free.
My checking or some people's cookie-jar probably isn't so
financially stable. Its rocking with $3 gas. What is this ca-
tastrophe fund anyhow? The state's home insurance com-
pany.
Do the beach.out-of-staters pay this or are they going to
set up a border stop for auto collections? How about that bed
tax? They had to get down there to get some sleep, somehow.
I need a state opt-out form. Isn't there a representative tied
pretty close to this subject right here? I tried contacting him
twice, but he's hiding. I guess, there's a good side to this, the
illegals, they pack 15 to 20 per car with their 'Bama plates
and share.

Editor,
What is happening with the new Life Enrichment Senior
Center? An opportunity to learn the details will be presented
this week at the Church of Christ on College Avenue. The
public is invited to attend a meeting on April 19, at 5 p.m. to
review the proposed floor plan for a 4,000 sq. ft. building.
The building will be constructed next door to the current
Government Complex that is now occupied by county em-
ployees.
When the project was first proposed by Commissioner
Kenneth Pridgen about 18 months ago it was contingent upon
county employes moving from the Government Complex on
College Avenue to the new courthouse. There have been con-
siderable delays on the courthouse and this has delayed
moving forward with full utilization of the Government Com-
plex property for senior citizens.
A few weeks ago county and city officials along with com-
mittee members visited senior centers in Geneva, Florala,
AL, and Fort Walton Beach, FL. As a result Mr. Rick Millard,
county construction manager, will present a conceptional floor
plan for the new building. He will also take recommenda-
tions for the interior redesign of the current county build-
ing. Both buildings will be connected and will provide about
10,000 sq. ft. of space.
While there are many details still to be worked out, the
new senior citizen facility will house a kitchen, restrooms,
and great room in the new building. The current building
will be redesigned with smaller rooms for meetings, classes,
recreational and educational functions. A public survey last
year indicated high interest in art, ceramics, quilting, exer-
cise and health, and computer training classes. Outdoor and
travel interests were also very high on the list.
While senior citizens are very anxious to have new life
enrichment opportunities available through the Life Enrich-
ment Senior Center, it will be several months before the cur-
rent building will be available. In the meantime the commit-
tee will be recommending forward movement to begin the
construction process for the new building.
All interested parties are urged to attend the public meet-
ing this week and participate in helping make this project
happen.

Editor,
I could not agree more with the editor's comment 'Selec-
tive Shock Treatment' concerning the pageant of outrage over
stupid things said on the air by radio personality Don Imus,
who was apparently trying to be funny. Of course, now we
know Imus has been fired subsequent to your going to press,
further illuminating the lynch-mob mentality under which
the guardians of 'politically-correct speech' operate in this
country.
Yet this same group of deeply offended, self-righteous zeal-
ots, Jesse and Sharpton being the usual ringleaders, seem
to turn a blind eye toward the misogynistic, violent and rac-
ist garbage that passes for entertainment today. Don't know
what I'm talking about? Tune into a rap/hip-hop station for
a few hours. These same self-appointed arbiters of free speech
also seem to forget their own offensive verbal outrages, in-
cluding blatant race-baiting rhetoric that, in Sharpton's case,
can be seen as precipitating the violent death of eight people
during tension in Harlem,: N.Y., over a store closing. Imus
just said some rude things about a basketball team.
While I seldom listened to Imus, finding his show insane
for the most part, he should be able to say idiotic things,
especially in a humorous context, without having his hide
nailed to the barn door in such a selective and 'blood-in-the-
water' fashion by politically/racially motivated and unprin-
cipled professional rabble-rousers.
Where are we headed in this country when only certain
groups can say outrageous things that others, usually of an-
other race, don't dare mention? What's next, will the fear of
Jesse and Al's ire silence anyone brave enough to offer social
commentary on any group or race other than that the one to
which they belong? How long will it be before humor in bad
taste, at least at the expense of select groups, will be hang-
ing offense? When did we decide as a society that offensive
,speech should be censored to this degree instead ofjust chang-
ing the channel?

Editor,
My name is Gerald. I am deaf, have been since five years
of age. Am now 72. Being deaf, writing is very difficult to do
for I am not all that articulate. So, please, bear with me: I
was a Katrina victim and a refugee. Note the "was," for thanks
to Kay Brady and Wanda of Council on Aging and Cheri of
Independent Living Center in DeFuniak and Pensacola, I
am no longer a victim nor destitute. In fact, thanks to God's
grace, I am here.
I was caught outside in it not knowing a hurricane was
coming. It was awful, to say the least, of what I witnessed all
around me. Victimization did not end with the two hurri-
canes. I was living out of a travel trailer at a campground
when Katrina struck. Trailer and car were severely dam-
aged. For two weeks, there was no access to. water, power,
nor food. Then, campground owner commenced raising rents
weekly forcing people out to make room for contractors will-
ing and able to pay much higher lot rents. There was no choice
but to. leave with no place to go. I ended up in DeFuniak.
Many people returning found they no longer had a home
or place to stay. They become homeless as renters set about
exploiting their situation by raising rent to uncalled-for
heights. Insurance companies denied our compensation, etc.
It was disaster piled upon disaster. Jobs no longer existed
and, with loss of income, scavenging, living on the streets,
under bridges, tents, cardboard boxes, begging with no fore-
seeable exit to their plight. Picture the old and disabled who
cannot work or find jobs; alot of them in desperate straits,
having no idea or means where to turn for help.
It is said that the law of supply and demand with competi-
tion governs our society. I question this today for I see collu-
sion of pricing and not so much competitiveness along with
exploitation of one's ignorance, disadvantages, situations, and
victims of some disaster. A sad, harmful outlook on the state
of affairs as it exists here in the U.S. Not all do this, but it is
escalating in that direction through, ruthless self-serving
agendas.
FEMA, charities as Red Cross, and churches, could end
much of the homeless situations by issuing trailers, I think.
The policy that one should have had insurance or large in-
come to pay for their issued trailers is not realistic. Reality
is, exploited collusive mortgage payments, unreasonable high
rents and insurance costs industry-wide, is prevalent leav-
ing society with little or no choices. People with low incomes
who could not pay such exorbitant charges are turned away
by such mandated policies. Those who lost jobs, cannot work,
etc. are left out in the cold-homeless when disaster strikes.
Something is wrong here.
An issued trailer to the unfortunate is feasible on many
fronts. Low purchase costs, low rents, low utility costs, low
insurance rates, etc., in comparison. Too, it is hot mandated
to issue new trailer, and or new but necessary vehicles to
help out. Good used ones are called for and appreciated.
Being a Christian, I could not help but notice the hypoc-
risy of many Christians and their churches who shrug off
the homeless predicament leaving the problem to govern-
mental agencies, while knowing government cannot do it all.
That's cold. If every church set about to locate and issue a
trailer to even one homeless person or family, think of how
much good it would do to alleviate the problem in all its as-
pect; making for a better world.
I have been very fortunate; many have not. Thanks for those
who recognized my situation; stepping forward to give help.
These are good caring people. God bless them.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR) Juniper Lake Conservancy gives report


Editor,
I would like to inform anyone who would have a concern
about a Walton County Sheriff's office response to a call made
from Ten Lakes Estates on the afternoon of 4-13-07.
I need to say that it was all a mistake/misunderstanding
and the elderly gentleman and lady involved are of the ut-
most integrity and character and there are no worries with
these two honest people. No arrests were made and I think
that's because it was just a misunderstanding and that the
record of the call be deleted from the system because it serves
no purpose other than to put a mark against completely in-
nocent people.
I was not present and was told that the officer from the
Walton County Sheriff's Department handled the non-situ-
ation very professionally and the people I spoke with at the
Walton County Sheriff's dispatch center on 4-15-07 they
handled themselves very professionally. I think the whole
police force across the nation should be paid more and shown
more respect by the citizens/taxpayers, because if one thinks
about it at all, they will come to see that police work, I would
think 92 percent of the time is the hardest and most danger-
ous job there is. They have to see the worst situations of
people's lives everyday we as neighbors and citizens just
have to live through our own personally terrible times, where
as police officers have to see those hard things daily. I would
think that there should be a 1 percent County Tax in order
to pay the police, fire and EMS more.
Our town is partly safe and a better paid police force, fire
department, and EMS would more than likely keep DFS and
our county a safer, better place to live for a longer period of
time.
Anyway, everyone that knows about Ten Lake Estates po-
lice dispatch on April 13, 2007 will understand the point of
this statement.
Also, I think the teachers need to be paid more and have
smaller class sizes, because I/we have a 6-year-old in kin-
dergarten and we see the importance of their job in all our
lives.
Bret and Denise Sorrell
DeFuniak Springs

P.S. Mrs. Ealum is a wonderful teacher.


((LETTER TO THE EDITOR )
Editor,
My daughter, Barbara Harrison, 17, was involved in an
automobile accident on 2/5/07, at approximately 8:30 a.m.,
at the intersection US 98 and Mack Bayou Drive, directly in
front of Sacred Heart Hospital, Santa Rosa Beach, Walton
County, FL. Fortunately, she did not suffer any serious inju-
ries and even climbed out of the car on her own. When I
arrived at the accident scene, I was told by the police officer
that Barbara was brought to the emergency room. I imme-
diately went into the emergency room and was told my
daughter was not brought in. She was never brought into
the emergency room of the hospital where a qualified doctor
could make a determination. Instead she was airlifted by
helicopter to Sacred Heart Hospital, Pensacola, FL.
I was not notified and I did not authorize this airflight.
Rocky Mountain Holdings LLC SE has charged $12,931.10
for this unnecessary and unauthorized helicopter ride. Our
insurance company, BlueCross Blue Shield of Florida, has
paid $5,456.52 for this service and has determined that this
is the maximum allowable for this service.
Rocky Mountain Holdings has, received the $5,456.52 in-
surance payment and although requested, they are not ac-
cepting this as full payment for their service. We have re-

The Juniper Lake Conser-
vancy (JLC) met on March
17, with about fifty members
in attendance. The JLC is a
non-profit corporation work-
ing to conserve the natural
and recreational resources of
Juniper Lake, in DeFuniak
Springs. Membership is
open to the public.
President Sally Johnson
presented a report about the
lake drawdown received that
week from the Fish and Wild-
life Commission. Muck de-
posits that were originally
one to four feet deep in large
exposed areas of the lake are
reported to have now dried
and compacted to a depth of
six inches or less. This
should result in significant
improvement of fish habi-
tat. In other ar-
eas the depth of the muck,
the large number of stumps
and woody debris, and other
factors have prevented muck
reduction to the extent
hoped.
The outflow valves are now
closed and the lake will fill
up as quickly as sufficient
rain is received. The esti-
mated time needed to refill
the lake is nine to twelve
months under normal rain-
fall conditions.
At the meeting, some Con-
servancy members expressed
concern that parts of the
original drawdown plan are
not yet accomplished. Oth-
ers pointed out that there
have been assurances from
both the Fish and Wildlife
Commission and the Florida
Department of Environmen-
tal Protection that efforts to
improve the health and rec-
reational usability of the lake
will be ongoing. Some of that
work cannot be done until
the lake refills.
President Sally Johnson
announced the resignations
of all the JLC officers effec-
tive with the close of the
meeting. Nominations were
taken and an election held.
The newly elected JLC offic-
ers are as follows: president
Clark Whitney; vice presi-
dent Steve Cole; secretary
Julie Cole; treasurer: Dee
Whatley; director: Bill Van
Dyck, and director Bob
McNeil

April is National Sexual
Assault Awareness Month.

vors and their loved ones in
the community. The April
2007 theme, "More Than

the message that words are
not enough to express the


pain of sexual violence.

a day of family fun at the

Rachel Gillis, chief execu-
tive officer of COPE Center,
said, "Sexual violence affects


every member of this com-
munity, and it will take ev-
eryone in this community
working together to end
sexual violence. Tackling this
issue may seem like 'an insur-
mountable task, but this is
an issue we must confront.
This community and every
person in it is far too valu-
able to tolerate sexual vio-
lence in any form."

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, APRIL 19

PAXTON FROM FRONT


attendees brought forward
water/power bill requests, of
which the council can per-
form only once. One attendee
was charged for 88,000 gal-
lons of water that he could
not account for, and another
had a leak in her water line
that resulted in a larger-
than-usual bill. In both cases
the council was willing to
dissavow any service


charges: Once.
The next matter of busi-
ness was a request on the
part of County Property
Appraiser's Office employee
Travis Wilkerson. Wilkerson
requested the use of city
property to park one of his
employee's county-ptovided
vehicle overnight, as his em-
ployee lives in the Gaskin
area and would have to drive


FREEPORT FROMFRONT


design engineers certify that
the development, as com-
pleted, meets all applicable
standards. She proposed ad-
vising developers at pre-de-
velopment conferences that
this certification will be re-
quired. The council approved
this proposal.
City Engineer Charles Pe-
ters reported to the council
that survey work to identify
locations where easements
will be required from Eglin
AFB for North Bay Water
mains is complete. Necessary
applications are being sub-
mitted to Eglin. When the
easements are approved,
new lines can be installed.
Peters expects this process
will take about a year to com-
plete.
Peters said the Mallard
Creek sewer crossing bid
openings will be scheduled
before the end of the month.
Peters also said that since
the Owls Head development
has delayed their schedule to
install a sewer treating
plant, that the City's project
to install a new force main
north along U.S. 331 would
have to be reactivated.
Eleanor Turner spoke to
the Council and thanked
them for their participation,
past, present and future, in,
work on the Blount House.
Peters reported that the
plans for the work on the
house would be finished by
the end of the week. '
Engineer Tony Peters
asked for and received ap-
proval of a request to start
design work on a major ex-
pansion of the Freeport sew-
age treating plant. The de-
sign will include new process
tanks, additional filtration
equipment, electrical con-
trols, clarifiers and expanded
pumping capacity. A prelimi-
nary order-of-magnitude es-
timate places the project cost
at about $9 million.
Marse reported that local
contractors are not bidding
on city work because of the
cost of performance bonds.
City Attorney Clayton
Adkinson will look into
Florida and grant agency re-
quirements bonding require-
ments. His preliminary opin-
ion is that if project cost is
moderate and borne entirely
by the city, then the require-
ment for the bond may be
waived.
Freeport resident Loretta
Burton addressed the Coun-
cil and said her property was
"land-locked." She asked for
assistance in working out an
easement that would allow,
her to access Harrison Street
from her property without


crossing other private prop-
erty. She pointed out that the
situation she is in has its
roots in a Council decision
made many years ago to close
and abandon "old" Harrison
Street. She said that other
parcels in the same area are
afflicted in the same way.

The council and staff act-
ing together addressed the
issue on the spot and worked
out a plan for a minor land
exchange that will resolve
Burton's problem.

to DeFuniak each morning to
pick up his vehicle. In the
days of $2.89 low-test petrol,
Wilkerson argued that such
an allowance would increase
the overall efficiency of his
operation, and make better
use of his employee's time.
The only issue the council
had was the time that the
vehicle would be on city
grounds. Wilkerson informed
the council that since
appraiser's office hours are
from 7a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Mon-
day-Friday, the vehicle would
stay over the weekend on city
grounds. Councilman Joe
Melton made a motion to al-
low this, which passed unani-
mously.
Next came local Reverend
Chester Carlisle who re-
quested the use of the Pax-
ton Little League park for his
church's summertime vaca-
tion bible school, this year
featuring a sports theme.
Rev. Carlisle had already
made arrangements with
Dixie Youth League officials
to insure that this would not
conflict with any scheduled
games. The council agreed
with the proposal.
After hearing the last of
the presentations, Mayor
Wanda Smith gave her
Mayor's Report, this month


Science seminar set at OWC


The monthly seminar se-
ries Science, Technology, and
Society offered by the Science

centering around the need
for a replacement vehicle for
the city's venerable
Chevrolet S-10 pickup. Ac-
cording to Mayor Smith, the
truck has seen better days:
it burns oil, the transmission,
leaks, the floorboard is, for
the most part, absent, and
the engine has been rebuilt
twice. The council made the
decision to purchase a new
vehicle, with Kemp saying,
"the cheaper the better."
LoriAnn Bytell made her
Attorney's Report next. The
two items in question were
the apparent lack of a nui-
sance ordinance in either
Paxton city records or Wal-
ton County records, so Bytell
provided the council with
copies of the ordinances from
Crestview and Laurel Hill for
their review. The other issue
was that of an update in
CHELCO's pricing system,
requiring a reexamination of
Paxton's utility tax. Kemp
said, "I'd like to see it stay
like it is," and it will, as the
council unanimously voted in
favor of making no changes
to their current pricing
scheme.
Finally, the council heard
old business from the previ-
ous meeting. The first being
the proposed flea market by
Mr. and Mrs. Rowe, neither
of whom were in attendance.
The council had sent a letter
of request to Walton County
officials and could take no.
action until they recieved
word from them.
Bigger news was the deci-
sion to completely close the
Paxton city dump, due to con-
sistent missuse of the pre-
mises and the recent abduc-
tion of the two gate keys com-
monly loaned out to citizens.
The keys have been missing
for two weeks. Melton said
frankly, "Close it. Period."
The council agreed, saying
that residents who need to
have brush disposed of
should contact the county's
garbage service about their
monthly pick up.
The last short presenta-
tion heard by the council was


from former councilman and
Paxton Alumni Association
member Tom Thompson on
the progress of the Paxton
School mascot dispute. Th-
ompson, though irked that
the council would not commit
to taking sides as a govern-
ing body on the issue re-

Melton said, "I don't feel as

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD THURSDAY, APRIL 19, 2007


i The Emerald Coast
has been the scene
for years for great
festivals, world-class
concerts, car and
boat expos and of
.course, vacation des-
tinations. But what
about the business of
saying "I do."

We all know why we live
here along the shorelines of
the Gulf of Mexico. We are
able to enjoy the beautiful
white sands, the emerald
green colors of the water and
the endless array of
watersports, shopping, fine
dining and events that are
offered to us on a nearly daily
basis. But for many, it is not
all the events, shopping and
other aspects, it is the envi-
ronment and natural sur-
roundings, attracting brides
by the thousands to the
Florida Emerald Coast.
Since the new millennium,
'Walton County has seen an
explosion of wedding book-
ings and destinations not
only along the coast, but
around the bay and up into
the DeFuniak Springs area.
The "in" thing to do is to get
married in Walton County.
Atlanta, Memphis, New Or-
leans, Birmingham and
Nashville brides are scram-


bling to get a venue booked
for their nuptuals, years in
advance.
The obvious reasons are
the beautiful waters of the
Gulf of Mexico and the white
sands of the coastline.
.Coupled with pristine homes
and high-end resorts, it is the
perfect setting for a wedding.
Thousands of brides over
the past few years have
changed their previous wed-
ding destinations and book-
ings in other parts of the
country, to bring their wed-
ding party and reception to
the Emerald Coast. For many
brides from Alabama, Ten-
nessee, Georgia, Louisiana
and Mississippi, the location
is closer to home and more
convenient for family mem-
bers to travel to the Emerald
Coast.

The convenience of being
close to the bordering states,
a ceremony on some of the
world's most beautiful


beaches, and plenty of space
to bring the family in, doesn't
come cheap.
The wedding season in
Walton, Okaloosa and Bay
counties is March to October,
which is a high-rate period
for home, condo and hotel
room rentals.
To stay in a average house
for a week, and most rentals
require a week's stay-runs
between $4,000 and $6,000
per week. That is for a home
that sleeps 12-15, if you
don't mind grabbing a futon
or sleeping on a sofa that ev-
eryone has been sitting, eat-
ing and squirming on all day.
But the rental is just one
fee. Then there's the cost of
the wedding venue, that
could be in a ballroom, a
clubhouse, on a resort lawn
or at a beach access.
Town halls and ballrooms
can rent for $3,000- $7,500 a
night. Having a wedding at
a resort beach walkover
could run around $2,000 for


a two-hour ceremony. A
stretch of green in these
same resorts could cost up-
wards of $3,000 for a wed-
ding event.
Now what is a wedding
without the rentals, florists,
caterers, limos, photogra-
phers and other important
services needed to pull off the
fairytale event? Each is very
important, and each, comes
with its own price tag.
An average wedding in
Walton County that includes
all the above, could run close
to $50,000. That is if you
don't have a wedding coordi-
nator or have to have special
county permits for rentals
pulled by the county.
Getting hitched along our
stretch of paradise has be-
come a multi-million dollar
business that seems to have
no slowdown in sight. The
local wedding industry has
also been hyped by regional
and national magazines .
Books are printed and sent
to hundreds of thousands of
brides who are searching for
the "perfect" venue.

So when planning your
nuptials, if you want to have
a piece of the paradise pie
everyone else is fighting over,
just look out your back door.
Consider your home county.
Just be prepared to pay the
price tag and don't even con-
sider getting your locals dis-
count.


MANY WEDDING VENDORS, such as Sheila's Bakery,
design and create many delicacies for brides that have their
weddings along the Florida Emerald Coast. Her recent cre-
atiohs could be seen at the Taste of Freeport back on March
24.

God was going to call your name,
In life we loved you dearly
In death we do the same.
It broke our hearts to lose you, I
You did not go alone;
- For part of us went with you, -
- The day God called you home.
-" You left us peaceful memories, "
Your love is still our guide,
And though we cannot see you,
You are always at our side.
Our family chain is broken
And nothing seems the same,
But as God calls us one by one,
The chain will link again.

JEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD THURSDAY, APRIL 19, 2007


Remembering F.A. Strickland


By Nancy Floyd Richardson
In many respects, my granddaddy was a complicated
man. We all knew different sides. I can only imagine how
many times he's pulled one of our cars with a wrecker, sat
next to us in church, or shared a cup of coffee with us. How
many times have you enjoyed fresh, creamed corn from
his garden or a gallon of milk from Jersey Girl?
Granddaddy loved to "go" some of my favorite memo-
ries involve getting up from the breakfast table and hear-
ing him say with a wink, "Let's go." Most of the time, that
meant we were heading out to Mamie's or the 331 truck
stop to sit for a spell. Regardless to where we went,
Granddaddy seemed to know everyone. He always had a
kind word and a quick smile.
My Granddaddy had a favorite book, the one he read
every night before retiring to bed. In Ecclesiastes, Chapter
3, the Bible says, "To every thing there is a season, and a
time to every purpose under the heaven: a time to be born
and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up
that which is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal;. a
time to break down, and a time to build up; a time to weep
and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance."
My granddaddy was a man of principle. He could walk
straight, talk straight, and shoot straight. He didn't ask
anything of you that he was unwilling to do himself. He
had strong beliefs he believed in God, he believed in fam-
ily, and he believed in helping others when you can. He
influenced future generations through his words and ac-
tions, and he played the role of surrogate father and grand-
father for many. My grandfather was the hardest working
man I've ever met, and even at 85, he had a long list of
dreams and aspirations. He still had many plans and things
he wanted to accomplish.
When I think of my granddaddy, I think how he reminds
me of the five senses. I'll never smell the scent of Bondo in


a car repair shop or Old Spice without thinking of him.
I'll never hear a good sermon in church without consider-
ing how much it would appeal to him. When I see police
officers, I will think of how much he always respected men
in uniform. When I touch the soft fur of an animal, I'll
remember how much he loved having German Shepherds.
I'll never eat homemade chocolate ice cream without
thinking of the man who loved making it for others.
Later in Ecclesiastes it says, "I know that there is no
good in them, but for a man to rejoice, and to do good in
his life."
While we may mourn him now, we've been given an
extraordinary opportunity to share his life. He clearly un-
derstood that there was a time for every purpose under
heaven. He had served his purpose here and accomplished
all he could, loved all he could, and shared his Lord with
all he could. He spent the days of his life in service to
others.
In the last chapter of Ecclesiastes, the Bible says, "Let
us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and
keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of
man."
And that is the conclusion I wanted to share with you
today. My grandfather feared God and kept his command-
ments. He believed that was his whole duty as a man.
Whenever he encountered challenges, he went back to his
core beliefs and truly felt that all struggles could be over-,
come by faith and hard work.
Although I will miss my grandfather dearly, I'm not
struggling with his passing quite as much as I thought I
would. I know that he has found peace, and I prefer to
think of him as watching us from above, dressed in his
favorite overalls and cowboy hat, driving a tractor, and
dreaming about the fish he's going to catch later.

shed abroad in our hearts?
Let us be equally zealous for
our Christian work even if
we receive no wages nor fa-
vor from mankind.
Jesus was sent to reveal
the character of God. In John
17:6, He said, "I have mani-
I't.ctsd Thy name unto men
which Thou gavest me out of
the world." Let it be so of us
as it was of Paul: "To me to
live is Christ." And, "I live, yet
not I, but Christ liveth in me"
(Galatians 2:20).

By CHUCK HINSON
Both the baseball and soft-

their games at home.
The baseball team came
alive in the bottom of the sec-
ond inning, throwing four

while Devin Barnett scored
twice.
Mikie Jones was 2-for-3 for
the Bobcats.

PHS 2 0 0 0 1 0 0 -3


SWHS 0 4 1 0 1 0 x 6
The Lady Seahawks had a
closer game against Laurel
Hill.
Shelby Watson got the win
for South Walton with 11
strikeouts on the mound, giv-
ing up only four runs and one
walk. Katie Free took the
loss on the mound for the
Lady Hoboes, despite only
giving up three hits to South
Walton.


Laurel Hill tried to stage a
comeback late in the sixth
inning by racking up a couple
of runs, but were unable to
come up with an extra run to
tie the game.
Kathryn Kenner had two
runs for South Walton and
Brittany Jay had the other.
Adeana Reeves had two
hits for Laurel Hill, and Free
and Allicia Griggs each had
one hit.

h home Coach of


the Year award


By PATRICK CASEY
Todd Reynolds, a 1988
graduate of Walton High
School, was named Atmore
Advance Coach of the Year
for the 2006-07 season for his
27-7 record in his first cam-
paign at Escambia County
High School in Atmore, Ala-
bama, Reynolds coached the
Lady Blue Devils to the Ala-
bama High School Athletic
Association Class 4A South
region final in Trojan Arena
on the carmp11 of Troy Uni-
versity. The Lady Blue Dev-
ils fell to Ashford 75-56.
The squad's 27 wins set a
school record and the team
won the Escambia County


Tournament for the first time
in school history.
Reynolds came to
Escambia County after three
seasons at Central-
Hayneville High School
where he served as boys bas-
ketball coach. Reynolds took
the team to the 2005 Class
3A state championship game
where the squad lost to
Sumter County 76-60 in the
final.


Todd resides in Greenville, Y: .. -" '

Johnson once he is released.
The steroid use has also
drawn much notoriety, due to
some of the names that it has
dragged down. It seems that
more and more athletes are
competing against more guys
fresh out of the dorm and
hitting the draft rooms than
ever before.
Goodell is trying to change
the image of professional
sports. They are trying to
teach and conduct a profes-
sional manner of business,
while entertaining and giv-
ing the public top-notch
sporting activities.
NASCAR is not immune
from the stricter policies that
once made it "the sports of
rednecks." The technical ad-
vances, the Car of Tomorrow
program vehicles, and the
governing bodies' attitude of
"cheat and go home," has
made its way onto the tracks
of the sport.
Not only do the cars have
to pass strict guidelines and
analysis before every race,
the drivers and the crew are
picked over with a fine-tooth
comb. New policies are sus-
pending crew chiefs and cost-
ing car owners. For the driv-
ers, the biggest impact has
been taking cup points away

from them for various in-
fractions.
Has the professional sports
world finally come to realize
they have to play by the rules
of the game? Do these ath-
letes finally understand that
just because you make $10
million a year, you still have
to answer to the police, sher-
iff and even a judge?
Have the recent crack-
downs by baseball, football,
basketball and NASCAR
proven that even though you
entertain, you still have to.
answer to your mistakes and
crimes?
No matter what the opin-
ion of the organizational big-
wigs might be, or the out-
come of pending criminal
cases for several professional
athletes, one thing has be-
come certain. If these ath-
letes don't start playing and
living by the rules, their
court case is going to be
brought up on the ball court
floor, and halftime will start
being the place for plea bar-
gains!
Kudos to those who realize
the problems with profes-
sional sports and its players.
My hat is off to those players
who are playing and living to
make a difference!

The Okaloosa-Walton
baseball team rallied for a 2-
1 win over North Florida on
Saturday to improve to 26-20
overall and 9-12 in Pan-
handle Conference play. The
Raiders are barely hanging
on in the playoff race and a
berth appears unlikely un-
less the squad can finish with
a perfect run. Chipola swept
the OWC softball team on
Saturday to drop the Raiders
to 25-27 overall and 5-11 in
conference play. Though four
teams qualify for the
postseason in the Panhandle
Conference, the Lady Raid-
ers were little threat to top-
ranked Chipola over the
weekend, losing 8-0 and 9-2.

Spring practice wrapped
up at Florida and FSU over

the weekend. FSU's defense
is nearing the ability to be
dominant once again, but the
offense tossed four intercep-
tions in the spring game.
FSU should be improved, but
faces a tough road slate while
Florida has tons of holes to
fill and will be the team ev-
eryone wants to beat this fall.
However, Florida has been
hot the last 13 months and
should still field a potent of-
fense, defense will be a ques-
tion, though, in the always
defensive SEC.

The Florida State baseball
team swept Virginia Tech
over the weekend to improve
to 35-4 overall and 13-2 in
ACC play. The Seminoles are
30-0 at home and face
Florida in Tallahassee
Wednesday afternoon at 5


p.m. The Seminoles welcome
North Carolina into town on
Friday for a three game se-
ries against the Tarheels in
what may be the most inter-
estingACC series of the regu-
lar season.

Little League baseball is
in full swing with over 1,000
youngsters making up local
rosters. At last count,
Defuniak had 393 players,
South Walton 340, Paxton
240 and Freeport 120 for a
total of 1,093 participants.
The Chipley baseball team
solidified their hold on Dis-
trict 2, Class 3Aas the Tigers
finished 4-0 in district play.
Chipley will await next
week's winner between
Holmes County and
Marianna for the district
title and a host playoff spot.


The winner of the Walton-
Northview semifinal in Dis-
trict 1 will likely travel to the
District 2 champion unless
either can claim the District

power Pensacola Catholic.

Carter flourishes as freshman


By PATRICK CASEY

man while playing baseball
at William Carey University
in Hattiesburg, Mississippi.

Carter, one of only four
freshmen on the squad, has
compiled a 2-2 record with
three saves in 17 appear-


ances this season. Carter

PAGE 12-B THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, APRIL 19, 2007

Area businessman revives historic local baseball teams


By REID TUCKER
From 1940 until 1988, the
Ponce De Leon Tigers played
baseball every Sunday after-
noon following Easter at the
Douglass Crossroads in Ar-
gyle, Florida. Now, some 19
years later, thanks to the ef-
forts of a former Tigers
player, the storied team will
take to the diamond once
again.
Don Graham is a local, and
he's quick to say that he's
proud of his community. "I
was born and raised in De-
Funiak Springs. I graduated
from Walton High School in
'82 and I wanted to do some-
thing for my home town,"
Graham said. "There's noth-
ing in this area to provide the
baseball, and that's where we
come in."
Graham played with the
Tigers from 1970 to 1988 as
a first baseman and, occa-
sionally, pitcher. Along with
many of his teammates, dur-
ing the late 1980s, Graham
had to leave the DeFuniak
Springs area in search of bet-
ter work opportunities. Gra-
ham found his success in Ft.
Walton Beach as the owner
of five businesses, without
which, Graham says, his lat-
est venture would not be pos-
sible.
Graham has the unique
position of owner of two dis-
tinctly different franchises,
the aforementioned Tigers
and the DeFuniak Springs
Red Sox. "When I came back
(to DeFuniak) I bought the
trade mark for both teams,"
Graham said. "We are one
entity, two brands," Graham
explained that if a player
signs with Don Graham En-
terprise, LLC., he is eligible
.w s.*( -.uw -uij -, ,


for both teams. His current
roster of 24 signed players
gives Graham the "capabili-
ties to split the team. There
is no A Team or B Team."
This nuance allows the Ti-
gers to play the Sox, or both
teams to travel elsewhere to
play other teams. Graham
said that this was one of the
main reasons he decided to
buy the rights to both his old
ball club as well as the Red
Sox.
Both baseball teams were
founded in the 1940s and
steeped in the rich history of
the Negro League phenom-
enon that went along with
them. The ball clubs pro-
vided entertainment~for the
community and an outlet for
the skills of their players
that, at the time, would oth-
erwise not have been recog-
nized. "The teams were for
the men who worked hard all
week," Graham said, "They
gave people something to
look forward to on the week-
ends."
Like every sporting team,
Ponce De Leon and DeFu-
niak enjoyed the company of
legends. For the Tigers they
were Roy Hogans, Josh and
Raymond Jackson, and
Travis Rushing. The Red Sox
had the familiar Willie
"Boogie" Hall, Johnny
Barnes, and "Slim" Ander-
son.
The teams themselves
were no joke, either. The De-
Funiak Springs Red Sox lost
no more than 5 games be-
tween 1952 and 1961, such
was the degree of skill and
cohension among its players
and the direction of their
coach, Malcolm Fletcher.
When one considers that
"- a -'-. ."


these teams played at least
25 games per season and
that the Red Sox played
against teams from Ft. Wal-
ton Beach, Crestview,
Dothan, Enterprise, Mobile,
Pensacola, among others, it
becomes clear what Graham
meant when he said, "they
were the dominant team of
the 40s and 50s."
Ponce De Leon didn't play
teams from cities quite so
large, but competition was
always frenetic. The Tigers
played against teams from
Ft. Walton, such as Holy
Neck, Cotton wood, Florala-
area "Stateline," and arch-ri-
.vals, The Redheads of Ebro.
The Tigers enjoyed many un-
derdog wins and winning
seasons in general and al-
ways, Graham said, gave as
good as they got.
These movements came to
an abrupt end, though, after
many of the longtime players
became too old to play
against their younger coun-
terparts in bigger cities, and
as they had to leave in search


of better jobs. For the Tigers,
this came in 1988. The Sox
played their last recorded
game in 1963, after which,
mirroring the present day,
they merged with Ponce De
Leon's club.
Just as it is said, "All
things old are new again,"
the teams have made their
resurgence and played their
first game in nearly two de-
cades on Easter Sunday,
April 9, against rival Ebro,
who has also been recently
reinstated. "We started prac-'
ticing at the beginning of
March," Graham said. The
game resulted in a draw, as
Ebro's Ronny Brown hit a
home run to tie it up in the
ninth. Brown played against
Graham in the 70's and 80's.
Just as in days past, the en-
tire community came out to
see the game, Graham said.
There was a cookout and a
large crowd, there was even
a DJ at the game.
Graham currently has his
teams scheduled to play
against Ft. Walton Beach,


Pensacola, Caryville, Enter-
prise, Dothan, and Eufala,
with two back-to-back games
against each one. "If anyone
can organize a team, we'd be
glad play them," Graham
said.
The main draw of this
brand of baseball, at least for
the players, is the
monetarilly lucrative
prosepct of playing for Don
Graham Enterprise, LLC.
Simply put, his two teams
are the only pro baseball
from Pensacola to Jackson-
ville. "It's real-life pro ball,"
Graham said. "It's not sanc-
tioned, it's a small version,
but it's still professional
baseball. It's the real deal."
The average age of Graham's
players is 22-23, though they
must be at least 18 to play.
"Once the aspiration for col-
lege ball is gone, they can
still play professional ball,"
Graham said. "This is their
job."
Another point of interest is
the composition of teams.
"They all know each other!"


Graham exclaimed. That is,
the majority of his players
either played together in
high school or against each
other on opposite teams,
"That's how we were able to
get public interest," he said.
* Some of the players signed
with Graham's teams include
his nephew Danny Graham
II, former WHS players
Kendal May, Eric Whidden,
OJ Melton, and Jarred
Nelson, as well as Travis
Posey and Dusty Taylor.
Coaching duties are handled
by Andre Stucky andAl Jack-
son.
Graham is also on the look-
out for potential sponsors. "If
anyone would be interested
in sponsoring us, we would-
be interested in discussing
it."

De Leon Tigers, the DeFu-

Commissioners set


policy for seawall letters


By DOTTY NIST
The Walton County Board
of County Com'missioners
(BCC) has set a policy in con-
nection with issuance of
coastal armoring comprehen-
sive plan compliance letters.
The state Department of
Environmental Protection
(DEP) has been requesting
these letters from the county
in order to review property
owners' applications for per-
manent coastal armoring, in-
cluding seawalls.
During several months af-
ter Hurricane Dennis hit the
Gulf Coast, under an emer-
.gency order Walton County
issued over 250 permits for
the construction of tempo-
rary armoring so that
beachfront property owners
could shore up their homes.
The emergency county
permits stated that, in order
to leave the seawall or other
armbring in place on a per-
manent basis, a state permit
would be required.
Property owners were re-
quired to apply for state
coastal armoring permits
within 60 days of finishing
the construction of their sea-
walls or other armoring
structures.
Since the county land de-
velopment code addresses ac-
tivities connected with ero-
sion on the beach, the state
requires "compliance letters"
from Walton County stating
whether a coastal armoring
structure complies wiih
county code. These letters
are a requirement in order
for a state coastal armoring
application to be processed.
Due to coastal armoring


Pat Blackshear, county planning and develop-
ment director, pointed out that approval for a
county compliance letter does not necessarily in-
sure that a coastal armoring application will re-
ceive state approval, since that is a separate pro-
cess.


structures having been ap-
proved as part of an emer-
gency order, Walton County
has provided some letters in-
dicating that structures do
comply with county code.
County legal counsel Mike
Burke estimated that the
county had issued "80 or so"
such letters.
At the time of the 2005
emergency order, county
staffs interpretation of the
Walton County Land Devel-
opment Code was that
coastal armoring was not
permitted, and that the only
circumstance in which sea-
wall construction would be
allowed was under emer-
gency authorization.
Information provided by
county consultants at an
April 3 special meeting led to
a different conclusion---that
the county comprehensive
plan does not absolutely pro-
hibit coastal armoring.
Several coastal armoring
applications have been sub-
mitted for structures not con-
nected with the emergency
order period. Requests for
compliance letters to accom-
pany these applications have
been a particular concern for
county planning staff.
On April 10, attorney
Burke proposed a policy to


guide issuance or denial of
coastal armoring comprehen-
sive plan compliance letters.
The policy was along the
lines of a motion suggested
by District 5 Commissioner
Cindy Meadows on April 3.
Under the policy, which
was approved unanimously
on April 10, Walton County
will provide comprehensive
plan compliance letters to
accompany applications from
all property owners who ap-
plied to DEP for coastal
armoring permits during the
post-Hurricane Dennis emer-
gency order period, and to
those who applied within 60
days after completion of their

armoring structures con-
structed in connection with
the emergency order.
Letters previously issued
will be honored as well.
Those property owners will
not need new letters.
Applications in all other
categories will be required to
undergo a new county review
procedure to determine com-
prehensive plan compliance.
Review will be accom-
plished by county planning
staff and by consultant Dr.
Bob Dean, coastal scientist.

RONMAZANis one of a number of rural landowners who
called for an exemption in the lighting ordinance to apply tot
agricultural areas. Mazan told county commissioners on April.
10 that there are times when he must have his property lighted
throughout the night.


Lighting ordinance

approved with

exemptions


By DOTTY NIST
Walton County now has
its first lighting ordinance,
which was approved with ex-
emptioas that apply to some,
rural areas and to school
property and facilities.
Developed over the past 1
1/2 years by the volunteer
Lighting Ordinance Commit-
tee, the ordinance focuses on
preventing negative impact
on residents. due to "light
trespass" from neighboring
property. This particular or-
dinance does not address the
impact of lighting on sea
turtle nesting.
Many hope that the ordi-
nance will moderate "blind-
ing" night lighting for which
large gas stations are noto-
rious and other similar in-
stances that many drivers
find disturbing.
Enforcement of the light-
ing ordinance is to be com-
plaint-driven. County code
enforcement officers will use


light meters to,ascertain
whether light entering a
neighboring property or
street exceeds the acceptable
limit of 10 foot candles.
The ordinance will require
new developments to submit
a lighting plan along with
their application for ap-
proval. Individuals applying
to construct single-family
residences will be exempt
from this requirement, but
lighting for these homes will
still be required to comply
with the standards set by the
ordinance.
Recent concerns ex-
pressed by farm and ranch
owners as the adoption pro-
cess began for the ordinance
resulted in a county staff rec-
ommendation that property
under agricultural use be
excluded from the provisions
of the ordinance.
Rural landowners feared

Nature Walk approved for beach club


-By DOTTY NIST
Nature Walk, a non-
beachfront development on
CR-395, has won county com-
mission approval for a beach
club on the south side of CR-
30A.
On April 10, the Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC) voted
3 to 2 to grant approval for
the project, contingent upon
a satisfactory technical re-
view of final plans by staff.
The beach club is to be lo-
cated on a 1.21-acre site
where the landmark
Seagrove Villas Motel now
stands. Plans are to demol-
ish the motel and replace it
with the beach club, 4,233
square feet in size, along
with 18 condominium units.
The beach club itself has
been the biggest issue for
neighboring residents. That
view was shared on April 10
by two of the commissioners,


Cindy Meadows and Sara
Comander. Both voted
against the proposal.
Comander said she be-
lieves it is important to lis-
ten to community members
when so many say a project
will have a negative impact
on their quality of life.
"This is a train wreck, in
my opinion," Meadows com-
mented.
Meadows also asserted
that approval would set a
precedent "that we will live
to regret."
When another non-
beachfront development,
Redfish Village, was ap-
proved for a private beach
access in January, Comander
had ranked the issue in-
volved as the second biggest
facing local beaches after
building height. She had ex-
pressed concerns that ap-
proval of the Redfish beach
access would set a precedent


"This is a train wreck, in my opinion,"
County Commissioner Cindy Meadows.


that had potential to be ex-
ploited by 6ther developers.
The Redfish beach access
entailed the replacement of
a duplex on a 0.63-acre lot
with a private dune walkover
with no structures nor a
parking area.
Nature Walk had made
numerous concessions with
its beach club proposal re-
sulting from several meet-
ings with neighbors. Plans
still remain elaborate, with
a total of 66,736 square feet
of development, to include
the beach club and condos, a
restaurant, bar, and decks.
The facility may be used by
up to 350 persons at a time.
Concessions by the appli-
cants apparently put some


residents at ease about the
project, but two groups, rep-
resented by attorneys, con-
tinued to oppose the proposal
at the April 10 public hear-
ing. Indications were that
the opposition would con-
tinue despite the commission
approval.
The property is classified
as neighborhood planning
area(NPA)/residential pres-
ervation, and the existing
use is nonconforming.
Rather than seek approval
as a nonconforming use, the
applicants elected to "go on
the covenants and restric-
tions track," explained Pat
Blackshear, county planning
and development services di-
rector.


Blackshear explained that
due to that decision, "the bur-
den is on the applicant" to
defend the proposal with re-
gard to covenants and re-
strictions on the property. At-
torney George Ralph Miller
argued that case for Nature
Walk by presenting deeds as-
sociated with the property. :
Project proponent Patrick
Hodges pointed out that, in
contrast with the existing
use, all buffer requirements
will be met and also argued
that, although structures
will be larger, impacts will be
less.
Attorney Gary Vorbeck,
representing a group of
neighbors, confirmed with
county staff that the proposal
represents a use three times
the existing size, with a den-
sity of 14.8 units per acre, as
compared with the highest

that the ordinance would
prevent them from using
bright floodlights to monitor
livestock at night and protect
cattle and horses from preda-
tors.
Staff also recommended
an exemption for school sites
and school facilities.
Members of the Lighting
Ordinance Committee had
met recently with concerned
rural property owners to
gather input. They had con-
cluded that the ordinance as
originally proposed would
serve the needs of all, includ-
ing farmers, ranchers, and
the schools. The committee
members had voted to recom-
mend the ordinance without

exclusions.
As the ordinance was con-
sidered by the Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners on April 10,
District 5 Commissioner
Cindy Meadows said she sup-
ported the agricultural ex-
emption.
' She said she felt it would
"help protect some of our
valuable, precious farm
land.",
Meadows said that often
subdivisions develop in the
vicinity of farms and that
residents in them tend to
complain about farm activi-
ties that were existing before
they moved in, causing farm
owners to sell out and leave.


She did not want to see sub-
divisions "run farmers out"
locally.
Following a motion for ap-
proval by District 3 Commis-
sioner Larry Jones, the ordi-
nance, along with exemp-
tions for property under bona
fide agricultural use and for
school and school facilities,
was approved unanimously.

The ordinance provides a
5 1/2-year time frame for the
correction of existing noncon-
forming lighting. Informa-
tion on the lighting ordi-
nance is available by contact-
ing Walton County Planning
and Development Services at
267-1955.

Large agenda faced by Planning Commission


By LEAH STRATMANN
There was a lengthy
agenda at last week's Plan-
ning Commission meeting,
including a number of legis-
lative items. While a number
of those were continued un-
til the next meeting, the com-
missioners approved several
ordinances. The first amend-
ment concerning changing
the proportionate fair share
ordinance generated more
than 90 minutes of commen-
tary by the public and county
planners, and is reported on
in a separate story
An ordinance was pre-
sented which would amend
the Walton County Land De-
velopment Code (LDC) to al-
low drive-through facilities
-in coastal centers. Drive-
throughs are restricted to fi-
nancial institutions, as long
as the drive-through is as far
as possible from the main
corridor. If the drive-through
is near residential areas,
buffers must be installed.
There will be no drive-
throughs within 100 feet of
a residential lot. If a home
sits at 110 feet, there will be
at least a six-foot buffer. The
amendment was passed as
written.
An amendment came be-
fore the commissioners ask-
ing to relieve the county from
some advertising for county-
sponsored comprehensive
plan amendments. Pat

Blackshear asked for this or-
dinance because although
the LDC appears to demand
certified letters to all people
who may be affected by any
county-sponsored amend-
ments, this costs the taxpay-
ers a great deal of money and
goes beyond state guidelines
for notifications. Blackshear
emphasized the county will
still advertise on the prop-
erty, conduct neighborhood
meetings and advertise in
newspapers.
Commissioner Tom Terrell
made a motion to pass this
ordinance as written with
provisions spelling out crite-
ria for what constitutes a
county-sponsored amend-
ment. All voted to pass the
amendment.
Another amendment con-
cerned wetland densities.
The current wetland density
code says if a developer is not
impacting the wetland, a de-
veloper can transfer the den-
sity out of the wetland area
to the upland area under de-
velopment. The amendment
would change the code to of-
fer the development the un-
derlying density if they
stayed out of the wetlands
altogether. "We want-to re-
ward those staying out of the
wetlands," Blackshear noted.
The commissioners noted the
amendment was a good in-
centive to protect the wet-
lands and all voted to pass it.
A major development or-
der application submitted by
Walton County for the Wal-
ton County Animal Shelter
asked for approval to build
an 11,000 square foot facility


for an animal control shelter
and offices on 20 acres of land
with a general land use of ag-
ricultural. The site is located
at 357 Triple G. Road in De-
Funiak Springs. It was noted
by county planners that a re-
tention pond will be used for
drainage and if any tortoises
are discovered on the prop-
erty, there is a plan to pro-
tect them. The project meets
all the requirements of the
county LDC and was unani-
mously passed by the com-
missioners after a motion by
Commissioner Terrell.
Sanford, Bell and Associ-
ates came before the commis-
sion asking for approval of a
development consisting of 50
condominium units on 9.75
acres with a future land use
designation of NPA/infill.
The project, known as The


Groves, is located on the west
side of CR-393 approxi-
mately one-half mile south of
U.S. 98. County planners
noted this was a mixed-use
project and was consistent
with LDC. The planners rec-
ommended approval with the
recommendation that the ap-
plicant buy out the sidewalk
and meet the wetland re-
quirements with permits
from the Department of En-
vironment Protection (DEP),
and after conducting envi-
ronmental studies. The
project was approved.
A major development ap-
plication submitted by David
Smith, P.E. of Moore Bass,
with Jack Rhodes as agent,
sought approval for 136
single-family units on 19.73
acres. The project is located
on the east side of Thompson


Road, south of Bedford
Manor Road and north of
Palmer Lane. The developers
sought five deviations from
the current land develop-
ment code, all involving set-
back distances in the front
and back yards of homes and
the right of way. County
planners found the project
met the technical require-
ments for conceptual ap-
proval only and noted the de-
velopers were using the den-
sity bonus for a total of eight
units per acre.
William Horn, engineer,
and Victor and Maria
Santiago, owners, requested
the commissioners approve a
2,250 square-foot diner and
1,232 square-feet of office
space on 1.1 acres on land
designated as mixed use. The
project is located on the north


side of U.S. 98 just east of
CR-393. Planners noted that
overall the project meets the
LDC, but the diner itself has
not been approved by the De-
sign Review Board (DRB).
This is the diner that was
previously located near the
Silver Sands Factory Stores.
The property where the own-
ers want to put the diner is
in Dankel Plaza and the
diner will be retrofitted with
stucco exterior ana other
amenities to meet DRB re-
quirements.
Commissioner Tom Patton
noted, "I think this diner has
some vested rights. It is a
classic diner with a classic
motif. I make a motion for
the project to go forward
without approval by the
DRB." The motion was ap-
proved by all.


Fair share amendment generates comments


By LEAH STRATMANN
At last week's lengthy
planning commission meet-
ing, the first agenda item
generated more than 90 min-
utes of discussion and expla-
nation, and was finally con-
tinued to a date certain of the
May meeting so that a few re-
maining wrinkles in the or-
diniance could be ironed out.
Greg Graham, an engi-
neer in the planning depart-
ment, presented the amend-
ment explaining that in 1984

For most counties this
mainly means roads, but the
act also covers sewers and
water. "Everybody was sup-
posed to implement a
concurrency management
system, which boils down to
every road having a certain
capacity. How many vehicles
can pass a certain point in an
hour," Graham explained.
The planning department
evaluates the existing capac-
ity of the roadways in Wal-

different capacities at differ-

Washing Machines


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


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


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


* If your wx asher has a variable \\ after t\lume
setting, select the mini imum amount required
per load.


* Pre-treat stains to a\ oid \ re\\ ashin,.


* Use the shortest \adh c\cle for li2htlv soiled loads.


* Check your IIwashing machine hose, regularly
for cracks that could result inII leaks.


The Walton Board of County Commissioners is sponsoring a project to collect, recycle, treat, and
properly dispose of these and other household hazardous wastes:

PESTICIDES USED OIL STALE GASOLINE SOLVENTS FERTILIZERS PAINT
PAINT THINNERS, PAINT STRIPPERS BATTERIES FURNITURE POLISH,
BRAKE FLUID ENGINE DEGREASERS ANTIFREEZE

County residents may bring up to 12 tires per residence.

Collection Date: Saturday, April 28 from 8 AM to I PM

Locations: Walton County Fairgrounds, Highway 83 North (9th Avenue), DeFuniak Springs

Training for life


THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, APRIL 19, 2007


By JEFFREY POWELL

Imagine working in a
sandy ditch or trench and
suddenly being buried under
tons o't sand,
This is just the kind of sce-
nario that the South Walton
T. P:< :. it (SWFD) light
resev tearm is pi ,paring' for.

'\ .,i t l,;.: ag-o we had a


gentleman working on a sea-
wall and become trapped,"
Hughes said. "The training
these firefighter receive to-
day will become invaluable
in a situation like that."
The SWFD is currently us-
ing Federal grant money to
train light rescue teams that
can be deployed throughout
the southeast in case of emer-
.1,ciL..e such as hurricane
Katrina.
"The Federal government
is using the state of Florida
as a model to develop pro-
grauns for other states to fol-


low," Hughes said. "We
should be considered a state
asset and can be deployed if
necessary."

The trench rescue train-
ing is being held on land
managed by South Walton
Utilities a group the SWFD
is happy to have on their
team. "We are building a
partnership consisting of
training and safety with
South Walton Utilities," said
Hughes. "This relationship
will be mutually beneficial to
both of our organizations."

county is within its rights to
have a time limit on the de-
velopment order, but the
county will not invalidate the
rights of a development that
is already underway. A differ-
ent time line needs to be set
up for existing development
orders," he said.
It was noted that all devel-
opment orders are followed
by a final order, which comes
from the Walton County
Board of County Commis-
sioners (BCC). If somebody
has secured a final order and
just sits on it, the final order
will expire in one year. The
final approvals that are al-
ready out there will not be af-
fected by the approval of this
ordinance.
Citizen Don Rutland said,
"The issue of timing is a real
burden to a small property
owner like myself. If you are
going take projects back un-
der modified conditions, the
money should be refundable.
If a project is held up by
something that is out of a
person's hands, they should
not lose their money and lose
their place and have to start
over."
Blackshear noted, "Right
now we literally have a mora-
torium on development be-
cause of the high cost dic-
tated by the Department of
Transportation (DOT). The
amendment reduces the area
involved in the analysis,
which reduces the cost," she
said.
Terrell noted, "This
amendment will affect every
single person in Walton
County. To rush to judgment
with this thing just because
a few people want to proceed
with their project would do a
disservice to Walton County.
'I think we need to be very
very cautious about what we
put down as the law."
Commissioner Gardner
noted the amendment made
the cost more affordable. "It
doesn't affect the big devel-
opers, but it affects everyone
everywhere. The developer
pays first, the citizens pay
second."
Commissioner Terrell
made a motion to continue
the ordinance to the next
meeting and all passed it.

Art in Public Places celebrates partnership


By JEFFREY POWELL
The South Walton Tourist
Development Council
(SWTDC) and Friends of
Coastal Branch Library cel-
ebrated their newly formed
Art in Public Places partner-
ship on Wednesday April 4.
As part of this celebration,
which took place at the
Coastal Branch Library in


Santa Rosa Beach, the orga-
nizations held a reception for
2007 artist of the year Bill
Stephenson. Stephenson was
selected as artist of the year
last October during the
SWTDC's 20th anniversary
annual meeting.
"Bill's three-dimensional
art is new, distinctive and a
perfect addition to our artist


of the year program and
coastal branch monthly ex-
hibits," said SWTDC New
Product Development Man-
ager Tiffany McCaskill.
Stephenson has been a
woodworker for over twenty
years and concentrates 'his
discipline on the turned ob-
ject. Many of his creations
come from materials he has


procured from work sites and
trees that have fallen due to
storm activity.
"I think the whole concept
of art in public places is
something we should all take
advantage of," Stephenson
said. "It is fantastic that the
library can provide these
kinds of venues for people of
all ages to enjoy."


The SWTDC Art &Culture
Committee recognized that
the month long art exhibit
presented by the Coastal
Branch Library would be a
great addition to the Art in
Public Places Program ac-
cording to Arts &. Culture
Committee chair Mary
Brown.
"This partnership will en-


hance upon two great exist-
ing programs as well as ex-
pand its reach in the commu-
nity, Brown said.
Stephenson's artwork will
be on exhibit during the
month of April.
