Freeport: to


split or not


to split?


By BEN GRAFTON
At Freeport's City Council
meeting of May 24, City
Planner Latilda Henninger
presented the council a with
a knotty problem carried
over from the last City Plan-
ning Board meeting where
an application had been sub-
mitted to split lots 1, 2, 3 and
4 of Block 23 in the Old Town
part of Freeport into parcels
of approximately 50-by -60
feet. It is understood that the
owners plan to put single
family residences on the split
lots.
She said the application
had been reviewed by the
board in April and at that
time the board asked the de-
veloper for a title search. The
request was complied; wth
and no irregularity was
found.
City and Board Attorney
Clayton Adkinson said he
saw no reason why action
should not proceed.
Henninger told the coun-
cil that an unusual situation
then developed because no
member of the board would
make a motion to either ap-
prove or disapprove the ap-
plication and send it on to the
council for action. This stale-
mate resulted in Henninger
bringing the situation to the
council for advice.
Adkinson said that in his
opinion there were no exist-
ing ordinances or codes un-
der which the application
could be denied.
Councilman Charlie
Simmons said 'that after to-
night there should be no
more lot splits that would
result in properties of less
than 1/4 acre. The council
agreed and will research the
problems of splitting lots in
areas already subdivided.
Pending the results of this
work, no more applications
for lot-splits will be accepted.
Simmons moved that the
application before the coun-
cil to split these lots be ap-
proved. The council agreed
and approved the motion.
In other business,
Henninger reported that the
Comprehensive Plan Evalu-


ation and Report (EAR) team
was working with the West
Florida Regional Planning
Council (WFRPC) to refine
the language of the draft re-
port and to prepare the
amendment to the Compre-
hensive Plan.
Adkinson presented the
second reading of the ordi-
nance establishing the home-
stead exemption that may be
claimed by persons age 65 or
over and with incomes below
a threshold of a little more
than $24,000. per year. The
ordinance increases the ex-
emption of these people, -of
whom only two reside in
Freeport, to $75,000 per year.
The council approved the or-
dinance.
City Engineer Charles Pe-
ters reminded the council
that the bids for the utility
crossing at Mallet Creek
were scheduled to be opened
next week.
Peters also said Peters
Municipal Associates was
opening a branch office in
Freeport to better serve the
city.
Mayor Mickey Marse re-
ported that the Department
of Transportation had ad-
vised the city that plan revi-
sions requiring a culvert ex-
tension at the intersection of
the U.S. 331 by-pass and SR-
20 will require the city to re-
locate a section of 10-inch
water main located there.
The city will have to bear the
expense of this work.
Tony Gomillion of the
Presbyterian Church advised
'the council that the church
planned to add a 1,800 -
square foot extension and
asked what steps should be
taken. The council referred
him to Henninger, who said
that she would guide him
through the application pro-
cess without delay.
Marse announced that
, David Fannin was leaving
city employment. Marse said
that the city would promote
one of its staff to take care of
system maintenance and
that it would hire, full-time,
a licensed water operator
presently working with the
city to manage the wells.

AMVETS hosts Memorial


Day ceremonies


By REID TUCKER
Robert Heinlein once
wrote, "The most noble fate
a man can endure is to place
his own mortal body between
his loved home and the war's
desolation."
The solemn looks on the
faces of those gathered for
Memorial Day services at the


Walton County Courthouse
on Monday, May 28, attested
to this essential truth.
Li. j.g. John Duncan and
his U.S. Navy Sea Cadets
posted the flag before the cer-
emony began to the sound of
the national anthem. All
flags were flown at half-staff.
"We assemble today with


a feeling of sadness for those
taken from our midst," said

State files price-fixing lawsuit against


Phillips and Fill-Ups Stores


By BRUCE COLLIER
The Florida Attorney Gen-
eral has filed a lawsuit
against Ryan E. Phillips and
Fill-Ups Food Stores III, Inc.,
alleging "combinations and/
or conspiracies in restaint of
trade or commerce." The civil
action was filed May 24 in
the Circuit Court of the First
Judicial Circuit.
The restraint of trade
complaint specifies that the
defendants engaged in "fix-
ing or raising retail gasoline
prices in Florida through co-
ordinating pricing by com-
petitors, resulting in
artificially inflated gasoline
proces...."
Phillips is president of
Fill-Ups Food Stores III, Inc.,
(Fill-Ups) a Florida corpora-
tion. The price-fixing is al-
leged to have taken place in
Walton County, and involved
two retail gas outlets in De-
Funiak Springs.


According to the com-
plaint, Marian Ingram was
operating the Emerald Ex-
press, located at 2396 U.S.
331 South, in DeFuniak
Springs. Fill-Ups purchased
what is now known as 87 De-
pot, a gas retail outlet across
the street, at 2359 U.S. 331
South, in DeFuniak Springs.
Phillips, who set the gas
prices for the 87 Depot, is al-
leged to have called Ingram
and threatened to "slaugh-
ter" her unless she raised gas
prices at Emerald Express to
the same level as those at 87
Depot. Ingram agreed to
raise prices.
Phillips is further alleged
to have called Ingram "ap-
proximately once a week to
tell her when to increase her
gasoline prices and to what
level." This allegedly contin-
ued for about two months,
when Ingram's lease was
canceled, and Phillips began
to operate the Emerald Ex-


press.
According to the com-
plaint, these actions violated
both the Florida Antitrust
Act and the Florida Decep-
tive and Unfair Trade Prac-
tices Act.
The state is asking that a
civil penalty of $100,000 for
each count of alleged anti-
trust violations be imposed
on Phillips, and of $1,000,000
for each count on Fill-Ups.
The state is also seeking
civil penalties of $10,000 per
count on Phillips and Fill-
Ups for the alleged unfair
trade practices violations.
The suit also requests at-
torney fees and equitable re-
lief.
Attorneys Gillis Powell
and Jerome Hoffman are rep-
resenting Phillips and Fill-
Ups. Powell characterized
the lawsuit as "absolutely
unadulterated hogwash."
Powell and Hoffmnan re-


ferred to a 2006 lawsuit filed
by the state in Okaloosa
County, in which Phillips
was alleged to have engaged
in post-hurricane "price-
gouging" as equally unsub-
stantiated.
"They knew there was ab-
solutely no evidence of price-
gouging," said Powell. He
and Hoffman said that law-
suit involved another defen-
*dant, who has since settled,
and that they are pushing to
get a trial date to resolve that
case as soon as possible for
Phillips.
In the current actio-n,
Powell said "the facts do not
coincide with the allega-
tions."
Marian Ingram and
Phillips did indeed have tele-
phone conversations, his at-
torneys said, but Phillips was
a wholesale gasoline suppler
for Emerald Express, and
such conversations would
have been a normal business


occurrence.
Phillips never suggested
price-fixing or made any
threats, said Powell. Powell
added that Ingram had been
a manager when Phillips ac-
quired the lease for Emerald,
Express, and he did not con-
tinue her employment.
"Ingram has got an axe to
grind," said Powell.
Both attorneys said that
they are looking forward to
resolving the case, and will
push for a trial date "very
quickly."
Hoffman said that Phillips:
has never been asked by the.
Attorney General to come in
and tell his side of the story.
"They [the Attorney
General's office] seem to
think Ryan Phillips is afraid
to tell his story," said
Hoffman.
"We're totally ready to de-
fend these suits," said
Powell.

CTST members push for



Walton Road sidewalks


By JEFFREY POWELL
The Walton County Com-
munity Traffic Safety Team
(CTST) comprises city,
county and state agencies, as
well as private industries
and citizens. Their main goal
is to recognize and correct
traffic problems and reduce
the number and severity of
traffic mishaps in and
around the county.
Sometimes, these mishaps
include a vehicle and a pe-
destrian. For this reason, the
CTST has placed a priority


on constructing sidewalks
and multi-use paths in the
Walton Road, SR-83 and the
John Baldwin Road area
north of DeFuniak Springs.
The new sidewalks are
needed, according to team
member Kevin Chilcutt, to
provide connectivity between
Maude Saunders Elemen-
tary, Walton High school, the
Walton County Health De-
partment and many other vi-
tal service-related busi-
nesses in the area.
If the teams efforts are


successful, the project would
most likely be done in a
three-phase approach. Phase
one would start at Maude
Saunders Elementary School
heading south on the east
side of John Baldwin Road to
Walton Road. Phase two from
SR-83 west along Walton
Road on the south side to
20th Street. Phase three
from near the Walton County
HealthDepartment north
along SR-83 past the fair-
grounds to Walton Road.
"This is an ongoing project


that will solve a variety of is-
sues," said CTST Chair
Latilda Henninger. "When
completed, the paths will
provide safe pedestrian ac-
cess from several high-vol-
ume areas, such as the Wal-
ton County Health Depart-
ment, Walton High School,
county parks and the fair-
grounds."
CTST meetings are open
to the public. The next meet-
ing will take place in the old
Freeport Post Office on June
27 at 10 a.m.

Stone

honored

by DAR

Emily Johnson 'Stone, of
Freeport, was honored for
her outstanding service to
Disabled Veterans by the
Florida State Society Daugh-
ters ofAmerican Revolution.
Stone belongs to the
Pensacola Chapter of the
DAR, along with her own
daughter. Stone has made
and donated hundreds of lap
robes and afghans for dis-
abled veterans each year.
Over the past five years, she
has produced 375 afghans -
an investment of about
18,000 hours of heartfelt-
work valued at $20,625.
The yarn for these
afghans usually runs around
$15 each. Stone accepts all
donations of yarn and turns
them into works of art. These
lap robes are taken to the
Veteran's Administration
(VA) Hospital in Lake City,
FL. She has made enough lap
robes to place on each and
every bed in that hospital.
According to hospital offi-
cials, some of the vets are
outpatients and homeless.
Some live under bridges and
do not own anything, but at
least they have an afghan
donated by the DAR. She
supports active duty troops
through Project Patriot. She
donates all of her canceled
stamps and has donated
money for phone cards for
the veterans in the
Gainesville, VA hospital. She
sends magazines and books,
and coffee for them, too.
Stone's service to the vet-
erans started many years
ago, working along side her
grandmother, Katherine
Lewis Johnson, of Osceola,
MO. They rolled bandages
during WWII for the soldiers.
For Emily Stone, the love of
country and those who se-
cure it just comes naturally
and, as a DAR member, it re-
mains an important part of
her family's history.

Walton EDC director seeks


"something for everyone"


By LAKEN DAVIS
As the executive director
for the Economic Develop-
ment Council (EDC) of Wal-
ton County, Robert Smith
says he tries to provide the
area with companies that of-
fer benefits and appropriate
wages for employees.
"We're looking for some-
thing for everyone," he said.
The EDC is a non-profit
organization that is dedi-
cated to Walton County's eco-
nomic growth and diversity,
according its Web site.
Smith's job is to promote eco-
nomic growth by attracting
and assisting businesses that
want to set up in the county.
"Basically, our activities
help our existing businesses
grow and prosper and im-
prove our product offerings
for new and expanding busi-


nesses," he said. "This prod-
uct we have to offer is
workforce and training, suit-
able land for new or expand-
ing industry and our commu-
nities and schools."
Smith started as the ex-
ecutive director in March
2006. He took the position
after spending more than
four years as a project man-
ager with the state of Ala-
bama. Smith has the only
paid position on the council,
which is mainly funded by
the Walton County Commis-
sion.
Commission chairman
Kenneth Pridgen said it is
important to have someone
in Smith's position, promot-
ing economic development.
"I'm sure he's had challenges,
with the county growing like
it has," Pridgen said. How-

ever, he said that Smith is
active and energetic and can
cover what needs to be done,
and fully understands what
the board wants to see.
Smith said he is proactive
in marketing the area to
businesses. However, the
council does not have an ex-
tensive budget. The Walton
EDC uses Florida's Great
Northwest, a regional eco-
nomic-development organi-
zation, and Enterprise
Florida, a state economic-de-
velopment organization, to
do national and international
advertising.
"It's good to use your state
and your regional agencies as
much as you can," Smith
said.
Those organizations for-
ward requests for informa-
tion from companies that are
interested in Walton County
to Smith. Smith then an-
swers these requests and
does any follow up that is re-
quired, he said.
"We get many indepen-
dent requests for demo-
graphic, workforce and wage-
rate information," he said.
."These are from people or
small businesses gathering
information to help them
make their business deci-
sions."
Last fall, Smith partici-
pated with Florida's Great
.Northwest in hosting an
event for site location special-
ists from all over the United
States. These are the con-
sultants that companies con-
tract with to find the best

AT THE FREEPORT industrial park, construction is being done on many buildings in-


cluding this new gas-service ce


possible locations for their
businesses. We had about 30
of them here for two days last
fall to showcase the area and
provide a program to pro-
mote the business climate
and advantages of this area,"
Smith said. They had a
speaker's forum that in-
cluded legislators, tax ex-
perts and business leaders.
The forum showcased the
county's ability to provide a
skilled workforce, training
and resources for targeted
industries. Groups like these
are highly professional and
influential to the companies
they report to, Smith said.
Smith's basic philosophy
on economic development is
value-added growth, he said.
He prefers to see manageable
growth that adds quality jobs
and opportunities, while not
negatively impacting the ex-
isting economy. He is inter-
ested in facilitating any busi-
ness that is interested in the
area, but he said the county
is probably more suited for
small-to-medium-sized


projects.
"Companies that export
goods and services outside
Walton County are the most
desirable as it puts payroll
and capital investment into
the local economy without
extracting it back out
through local sales," he said.
"Companies with large capi-
tal investments add greatly
to the tax base as well."
He went on to say that
adding payroll dollars to
grow the economy is impor-
tant, but jobs with health in-
surance and benefits are also
important, to not draw on
public services.
"Our desire-is to diversify
the economy to help distrib-
ute the tax burden more
evenly, while adding value
and opportunities to those in
Walton County," Smith said.


One of the aspects of eco-
nomic development is match-
ing the workforce with the
businesses that are being re-
cruited. In Walton County
there is a service-based and
construction workforce,
Smith said. He also said most
companies look for developed
sites with pre-existing infra-
structure.
In his position, he talks to
several companies that are
all looking at several loca-
tions. Some of the property
that Smith markets is owned
by the EDC, while some is
county-owried.
The first step in preparing
an untouched piece of prop-
erty is creating the infra-
structure, Smith said. This
includes preparing roads,

Our responsibil-

ity to the troops

By RON KELLEY

People in Walton County support the troops.
From the yellow ribbons tied 'round the old oak
tree to the magnetic yellow ribbon stickers that
adorn cars and trucks, the message is loud and
clear. It has been evidenced by the hundreds of
people who publicly mourned the untimely death
of Sgt. Timothy Padgett, as well as the unveiling
ceremony in south Walton of an impressive monu-
ment dedicated to our nation's Purple Heart re-
cipients, and again at Monday's Memorial Day
ceremony at the Walton County Courthouse.
Regardless of people's feelings about the war in
Iraq, citizens of every political stripe have stood
together to honor those who do battle in our name
as they should.
However, we bear a responsibility to our troops
that goes far beyond ribbons on trees or bumper
stickers.
More than 100 American soldiers have, been
killed this month, hundreds more wounded and
maimed. Their sacrifice was not made solely for
vague ideals or political ideology. These brave men
and women have pledged their very lives to pro-
tect ours, as well as our freedoms, our civil rights
and civil liberties, from those who would take them
away both foreign and domestic.
Thus, we have a solemn responsibility to them
to not waste their noble sacrifice. We must start
to learn again to look out for ourselves and our
families. We must again learn how to stand up for
ourselves'and not rely on a government that's all
too willing to treat us like willful, spoiled little
children who must be firmly contained for our own
good because we don't know what's best for us.
I believe that Sgt. Padgett and the thousands of
soldiers who have fought and died in battle did
not die just so that we could turn over our lives
and liberties to a government or president who
thinks that the Constitution and Bill of Rights are
obsolete, nothing more than vaguely interesting
historical documents.
We have to learn the meaning of "Give me lib-
erty or give me death!" We have to learn how to
take control of our country again and our own
manifest destiny. We have to make our voices
heard about such things as immigration, domes-
tic spying, foreign policy, the economy, education,
energy and all the other life-altering decisions that
will shape our future and the future of our chil-
dren for generations to come.
It will be hard work. We'll all have to pull our
heads out of the sand and awaken from the in-
sidious sopor of the last 40 years. But after so many
have died for us, isn't self-reliance the least we
can do to honor their sacrifice? Don't we have a
responsibility to our troops to be worthy of the gift
of their lives?
Or maybe we should just buy another bumper
sticker instead.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


Editor:
When I first read of the proposed idea of Commissioner
Scott Brannon to post the names of the creeks, rivers, and
tributaries of Walton County, I have to admit I was skepti-
cal. But I am happy to now say that this has to have been
one of the greatest ideas of all time.
Not only are these signs a great way to mark local land-
marks, they are great as a point of reference when talking to
the people of Walton County. And they have proven an in-
valuable teaching tool for my son as he learns the local geog-
raphy of Walton County. Now anyone can quite easily see
the relationship between what happens to a stream in the
Valley and how that may affect water quality several miles
away in another part of the county.
Thank you, Scott Brannon, for a great forward-thinking
idea.

Editor:
I'm writing in response to the five students that broke into
the cafeteria at Walton High School in DeFuniak Springs
and left 22 chickens for the enjoyment of the school person-
nel and the other students. There were two crimes commit-
ted here, breaking and entering, and the wimpy response of
the school officials. I called both the city of DeFuniak springs
Police Department and the Walton County Sheriff's Depart-
ment and asked if breaking and entering is a felony or a
misdemeanor, both declined to answer iny question.
The Walton County school officials declined to press charges
and that is symbolic of the accountability and disciplinary
problems that Walton County schools face along with the
rest of the nation. Without discipline and accountability, the
learning process is greatly inhibited. Teachers report that
student accountability and discipline is so poor in their class-
rooms that they are unable to adequately teach their sub-
jects. Yet, when they send the disruptive student or students
to the office, they are back in the classroom in a few minutes
and the process continues over and over.
Lack of accountability and a permissive attitude are preva-
lent in our schools and our society. A good example of this is
in the student handbook. There are pages and pages of rules
to be followed such as appropriate dress. I challenge you to
walk the halls of Walton High Schoo, or most of the schools
in our area, and tell me you do not see inappropriate dress
and behavior. You see bare bellies hanging over jeans, skirts
that barely cover the essentials and rear ends that show
due to pants hanging almost to the knees. Love is wonderful,
but there's a time and a place, not in the halls and dark
corners of the school.
What happened to the shame of pregnancy without the
benefit of marriage? More and more students are becoming
pregnant while in school and allowed to continue classes with
the general student population. There's little regard to this
moral lapse. Some of the girls wear T-shirts advertising the
fact and even bring their babies to school for display after
their birth. This is looked upon benignly by the school offi-,
cials.
It's fashionable to blame the teachers of the ills of our
schools. I believe we have a hard-working and dedicated cadre
of teachers that go. to great efforts to achieve learning in the
classroom. There are exceptions, as in every situation. The
problem is we have too many unaccountable and wimpy par-
ents, school boards, school superintendents, principals and
other school support personnel.
Our society is functioning with diminished accountability
and responsibility and there's always someone or something.
to blame. Many of our Afro-Americans blame the far-gone
days of slavery and Jim Crow for their slide in accountabil-
ity and responsibility. The Hispanics believe that they own a
good part of America and their behavior .-is justified on this
basis. Our poor whites think that society owes them because
of their low economic situation, which is mostly self-inflicted
due to lack of education or motivation or both. You have a
lack of accountability and responsibility in our corporate
boardrooms, blame that on greed. In almost all areas of our
society, you see this lack of accountability and responsibility.
We Americans need to adopt a new thought process "the
buck stops here." The buck stops in the home, the school, the
workplace, the place of worship, the corporation, and all our
areas of activity. If the home does not demand accountabil-
ity and responsibility of the child, the school should, the work-
place should, the church should, and everyone involved
should.
Walton County schools need to have a new beginning in
the upcoming school year. Practice and demand account-
ability, responsibility, and discipline. Enforce students rules
and regulations across the board without regard to race, color
or creed, no exceptions.

Indeed I am surprised and dismayed that Ms. Pickett and:
the board of directors of the Florida Chautauqua Center Inc;
(FCC) would shock our community with the announcement:
of an additional assembly, one week prior to the regularlyi
scheduled assembly, Feb 7-10, 2008.
For years, Ms. Pickett has complained, "Where is the com-,
munity?" For all those years, the assembly was funded al-,
most solely by Ms. Pickett it is one of her claims to fame -|
but as generous as this might seem, it is, in truth, clear evi-:
dence of failure in the endeavor. If an assembly will work'
only if one person is willing to fund it, how can it have any!
true or lasting value to the Chautauqua tradition or to De-,
Funiak Springs' legacy? Indeed, Ms. Pickett's assemblies,
lacked the harmonious Chautauqua spirit that the 2007 As-,
sembly evoked. After Ms. Pickett's assemblies ended, there;
was fatigue, bickering and a pall of sadness reigning of ouri
town. However, we always hoped that somehow it would get'
better.
In addition to her annual threats of abandoning the as-'
sembly, Ms. Pickett announced her retirement after the 2006:
assembly. Due to her 2006 retirement announcement and,
Ann Robinson's leadership in the 2007 Assembly, the com-,
munity said, "We are here!" Now, the community's involve-:
ment is once again threatened by Ms. Pickett's return to the,
scene. And .once again, she will fund her endeavors to her'
heart's content to in order to fulfill her personal needs.
Of paramount importance here, I believe, is the true.na-'
ture of non-profits. The theory and very nature of non-protit;
organizations is the prohibition of undue influence by in'df-:
viduals on the organization. They are formed and operated:
for some public good. Therefore, the public "owns" all non-
profit organizations. Lines drawn around the various orga-1
nizations for administration and legal oversight are, in ef-.
fect, artificial as far as moral purposes are concerned. Fori
any individual or group of individuals to use a non-profit to1
carry out personal agendas is a moral travesty.
The "enlightened" response by Pickett/FCC to the Florida;
Chautauqua Assembly, Inc.'s announcement of the regularly
scheduled 2008 Assembly Feb 7-10 should have been "Con-'
gratulations." That is, community participation was the de-!
sired effect from the beginning, and now that this has oc-c
curred due to the 2007 assembly, success has been met. *
However, the opposite has occurred. Battle lines are drawn,]
competition is created and divisive damage is the result in-'
flicted on the precious soul of Chautauqua itself, the
Chautauqua community everywhere and a dismayed DeFu-
niak Springs.
The true intention of Florida Chautauqua Assembly Inc.
from inception is to establish a solid foundation for the,
Chautaqua Winter Assembly in DeFuniak Springs, not a
"here today, gone tomorrow" situation as faced in the past.
The Florida Chautauqua Assembly, Inc. has carefully thought
out every detail to put in-place an organization our commu-
nity can not only be proud of, but can serve in whatever ca-,
pacity each citizen of DeFuniak Springs wishes to offer, year
after year. It includes a vision of, by and for the community,
all shared under the banner of the Chautauqua Idea.
What is the Chautauqua Idea? Per John Heyl Vincent, co- i
founder of Chautauqua in 1874, it is "Self-improvement in',
all our faculties, for all of us, through all time, for the great- ,
est good of all people this is the Chautauqua Idea, a divine
idea, a democratic idea, a progressive idea, a millennial idea."
As for myself, "Chautauqua is an idea which embraces
the highest human value the Divine Light in every man -
responsible for his growth to enlightenment and his fullest"
creative expression."
The Assembly which most embraces the Chautauqua Idea
is the only worthy Assembly. For my contribution dollars and,
support, the Florida Chautauqua Assembly, Inc. clearly rep-
resents the idea. In addition, the board is made up of long-
time Chautauquans with experience, knowledge and contacts
with the Chautauqua Institution in New York.
"The laborer is worthy of the hire." I await the hand of"
Providence to work out the details. 11

Board of Trustees;,

Editor:
I sure hope you can help get the word out that we need "i
help.
I have been a member of a Lions Club since 1989, and have
been in DeFuniak Springs Lions Club, since 1995.
We have helped many people with glasses, as well as other '
things.
This club has been going since 1949, but if we don't get,
help with new members, it will soon fold. Z
We need some people that will give a little of their time to i
help others. We not only buy glasses but furnish the leader*
dogs, (hearing dogs training for mulit-handoapped people i
hearing aids,) eye surgery, and the list goes on.
Now we are asking you, the people, to' become members ^
and help us keep this club alive.
For more information on becoming a member call Myrtis
Jackson at 892-4762 or Wilber Burkett at 892-2907.
Meeting are the first and third Tuesday of each month at
Best Western, at 7 p.m. Hope to see you there

PGE 6-A THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, MAY 31, 2007

Chautauqua Assembly 2008 has DeFiuniak seeing double


By BRUCE COLLIER
As it stands now, the first
two weeks of February, 2008
will see DeFuniak Springs
playing host to two
Chautauqua Assemblies, less
than a week apart.
The newly-formed Florida
Chautauqua Assembly, Inc.
(FCA) has scheduled its as-
sembly for Feb. 7 -10. Last
week, the Florida
Chautauqua Center, Inc.
(FCC) announced that its as-
sembly will take place Jan.
31 Feb. 3. Both will be held
in DeFuniak Springs. Ac-
cording to spokesmen for
both entities, the program


venues will be similar local
churches, residences, and
public facilities Both said
that space has been booked.
Craig Robinson, secretary/
treasurer of FCA, sent a writ-
ten statement to the Herald/
Breeze, expressing his reach
tion and thoughts on the
FCC's announcement.
"I must be naive," said
Robinson in an interview,
"but I am very surprised."
In his written statement,
Robinson observed that un-
der Ann Robinson's leader-
ship, the 2007 assembly
evoked "the harmonious
Chautauqua spirit," a spirit
he found lacking in previous


assemblies, headed by FCC
founder Diane Pickett.
"Aftei Ms. Pickett's as-
semblies ended, there was fa-
tigue, bickering and a pall of
sadness reigning of our
town. However, we always
hoped that somehow it would
get better," wrote Robinson.
Robinson also noted that
even though Pickett had an-
nounced that she would re-
tire after the 2006 assembly,
"the community's involve-
ment is once again threat-
ened by Ms. Pickett's return
to the scene.
"The Florida
Chautauauqa Assembly, Inc.
has carefully thought out ev-


ery detail to put in place an
organization our community
can not only be proud of but
can serve in whatever capac-
ity each citizen of DeFuniak
Springs wishes to offer, year
after year," wrote Robinson.
Chris Mitchell was re-
cently appointed president,
of FCC, a post that will put
him in charge of that entity's
2008 assembly. Mitchell will
be assisted by Susan Bakalo,
adding that "Diane Pickett
has handed it over to me."
Mitchell also said that
FCC's board of directors will
be available for "advice and
philosophical guidance," but
that the board has confidence


School board caps another school year


enough to "walk away, and be
there if I need them.
wil" not be going to the
board for day-to-day opera-
tions," said Mitchell.
The prospect of two full-
dress assemblies staged vir-
tually back-to-back has
drawn different reactions
from Robinson and Mitchell.
In his statement for FCA,
Robinson suggested that
FCC's decision to go forward
with an assembly will create
"competition," and "divisive
damage."
Mitchell said, "I will work
with whatever resources I
have, but not in a competi-
tive way. Now people have
two weeks to go to events in
this wonderful city."
Though each entity has
reportedly secured space and
venues for its respective pro-
grams, specifically what


those programs will be is still
in the planning stage in both
camps.
FCA's theme is "Where
Are We Now?" The organiz-
ers have emphasized that
their program will adhere to
the "Chautauqua Idea, as
originally stated by the
movement's founders in New
York.
FCC's theme will be "A
Journey into the American
Presidency" Mitchell consid-
ers this to be a timely theme
for a presidential election
year.
Planners of both assem-
blies have indicated that
they are in the. process of con-
tacting potential presenters
and programs. How each will
address the question- of se-
curing volunteer help a fi-
nite resource in a small com-
munity remains to be seen.

The Walton County School
Board met on Tuesday, May
22, at the Tivoli Administra-
tive Complex for their second
meeting of the month to
handle an agenda chock- full
of trip requests, supply or-
ders and building updates.
Board members received
an update on facility con-.
struction as several projects
will continue throughout the
summer. The new gymna-
sium at Paxton High School
is nearing completion. The
interior of the gym is being
painted, with locker units
having arrived and awaiting
installation. Assuming no de-
lays, the Paxton project
should be finished in mid-
July.
The final bridge sections
have been installed on the
road leading to the new
Mossy Head school. A reten-
tion pond has been dug in the
area and storm water drain-
age and catch basins are 90
percent complete."Power has
been attained at the site of
the school as the project con-
tinues site work. .,
Walton High School had
90 percent of the drainage
structures complete t-_il
Pow er has installed power to
the site and [Doley Mack has
a construction trailer on site.
If work proceeds as planned
a parking lot may be avail-
able near the front of the
school to help with parking


Walton

County

blue

recycling

bag

program
Walton County .has a new'
blue recycling bag program
that makes recycling more
convenient and efficient. At
home, simply place recy-
clable items (cans, glass,
plastic, paper and cardboard)
inside a blue bag and place
the bag out with regular
trash.
Recyclable items may be
separated or combined in one
bag. The only prerequisite is
that paper items do not be,
come wet. Wet paper is con-
sidered "contaminated" and
is not recyclable.
The public may soon pick
up free blue recycling bags
from local courthouses and
county offices, city hails, fire
stations, and libraries. They
will also be distributed
through the schools in Wal-
ton County. Look for the dis-
plays whenever in any of
these locations.
Blue trash bags that can be
bought at many grocery
stores are also acceptable.
The idea is that blue bags
will indicate "recyclables" at
the landfill when trash is
processed.
The blue recycling trailers
will still be available at con-
venient locations around the
county.
For more information on
recycling or on the locations
of these trailers, go to

tion and Services" and then
on the "Recycling Informa
tion" links.


by the time school is get to
begin in August.
Emerald Coast Middle
School has timber cutting
under way in the process of
building their athletic fields.
The board putthe finish--
ing touches on the gym at
Bay Elementary. The five
members of the board unani..
mously approved to increase
the foundation for a brick ex-
terior and increase the roof
pitch. The two changes will
have a cost of approximately
$18,000.
The board approved the
construction of four tennis
courts at Walton High School
to be located south of the cur-
rent baseball facility. The
previous tennis courts were
removed as part of the con-
struction going on for the
new two-story high school
building. The fencing from
the removed courts will be
reinstalled around the new
courts. Total cost is expected
to exceed $38,000.
Capri Zodrow brought a
few select students from Wal-
ton High School before board
members about the possibil-
ity of allowing the senior
*,is-._'at Walton Hifh School
in 200b to take a European
,senior class trip. The board


did not make a decision on
the issue, but seemed gener-
ally willing to let the contin-
gent pursue options for the
possibility, depending on cost
issues and continued support
by the senior students and
their parents.
The board also approved
trip requests for Walton High
School to.take members of
the football team to Auburn
University for a passing tour-
nament June 6-8. The Pax-
ton High School softball team
will travel to Wiyter Haven
to compete in the Sunshine
State Games from June 14-
16. The Walton football team
will also attend Troy
University's football camp
from June 20-22. Walton and
Freeport High School will
send both of their boys bas-
ketball, teams to Troy
University's boys basketball
camp from June 15-17. Wal-
ton and Freeport High School
will send both of their girls
basketball teams to Troy
University's girls basketball
camp from June 22-24.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, MAY 31, 2007


THE WALTON COUNTY EDC has talked of dredging parts cf La Grange Bayou, in
Freeport, to allow mobility for larger ships.


iBBl ii i^ B
IN MOSSY HEAD, plans are underway for the industrial park located between U.S. 90
and Interstate 10.


sewer, electricity and com-
munication means.
"If everything is planned
and ready, it makes the prop-
erty more marketable," he
said.
: Having the property ready
reduces the time it takes for
a company to move in. Smith
would like to get more in-
Volved with bringing all of
these things together, he
said. Once they are installed,
the area is called "shovel-
ieady."
Smith said, "It takes the
unknown out of the decision
making process," referring to
the installation of infrastruc-
ture.
: One project Smith has
been working on is the indus-
trial park in Freeport. The
EDC owns the piece of prop-
drty that is north of Hwy. 20,
and sells lots to businesses
that want to open. Smith
came in during the master
planning of the acreage. It
has been a long-term project
for the EDC, he said.
The park opened several
years ago, with infrastruc-
ture, but land with these
uitilities- in place was basi-
cally exhausted last year,


Smith said. The EDC board
approved a process that de-
veloped a master plan to ac-
cess and bring utilities to the
remaining acreage. It is nec-
essary to plat, design and en-
gineer the roads, the utility
easements and central drain-
age to facilitate further de-
velopment, Smith said. .
"I am working on the
plans for these improve-
ments now and my goal is to
-make industrial property
available and as shovel-
ready as possible, to be more
time efficient in the develop-
ment process," he said.
There was a drainage
problem on a parcel of land
in the park, Smith said. In
the past year, the EDC had a
solution to this problem en-
gineered, negotiated with ad-
jacent landowners, and then
contracted to have work done
to remedy the problem. The
work is currently underway.
A second project is the in-
dustrial park in the Mossy
Head area. With its location,
Smith said, the property is
attractive to the construction
and trade industries.
- Afew target markets the
EDC looks into are distribu-


tion companies and business-
service companies such as
call centers, banking ser-
vices, medical services and
tax services, Smith said. He
also added that many manu-
facturing companies look
abroad for business loca-
tions.
The Florida Department'
of Transportation (DOT) has
recently granted the county
access to the Mossy Head
property from Hwy. 285, and
the county has agreed to
comply with DOT specifica-
tions, Smith said. This will
be the main entrance and
exit to the park. A sewer
plant will be the first con-
struction on the property. A
proposal for the plant will be
presented within the next
month. The plant will serve
the businesses in the park
and other establishmeAts in
the area.
This property adjoins In-
terstate 10, too. "The inter-
state is key to a lot of compa-
nies," he said.
Smith is also working on
a project in La Grange Bayou
to allow for easier travel. In-
terested parties and public
officials met last year with


engineers to discuss the
dredging of the bayou. It has
not been dredged since 1962.
There are several businesses
that rely on this port, Smith
said, and the city of Freeport
has an unloading dock there
as well. There are difficult
problems to deal with, he
said. One problem is finding
a disposal site for the
dredged material. It will
have to be addressed at the
state level and with the DEP.
These problems have to be
addressed before budgeting
proposals can be arranged.
Smith is also working on
a series of workshops as a
service to existing industry
and the public. Through a re-
lationship with the Florida
Manufacturing Extension
Partnership, Smith is plan-
ning a one-day workshop on
manufacturing for area busi-.
nesses, he said. Managers re-,

alize that the lean process is
always evolving and are al-,
ways looking for new ideas,
he said. He is targeting a
date in July..
Another project Smith is
working on is an enterprise
zone seminar. Walton County
has three enterprise zones


that offer tax incentives for
development, Smith said. He
has received a commitment
from state administrators to
conduct a seminar explain-
ing the benefits of develop-
ment in enterprise zones.
"I hope that this will not
only help market the area,
but also help those already
here to take advantage of the
program," Smith said. i
Smith had no trouble com-
ing in after the previous ex-
ecutive director, Tom Powell.
Smith said Powell was effi-
cient. However, with a one-
man office, it was a little dif-
ficult to locate everything.
Smith said Powell left no
ends open; he tied things up
or left instructions.
The EDC has talked about
getting a staff to work with
Smith, or looking into a
work-study program with
OWC students, but they
haven't made any plans for
change, Smith said.
District 5 Commissioner
Cindy Meadows said it is a
lot to expect one person to do
the administration work for
the EDC as well as the pro-
motion. She thinks Smith is
setting the stage and getting


prepared for the develop-
ment that is going to come
with the new regional air-
port.
"I think he's done an ad-
mirable job," Meadows said.
She said he is doing well
based on the resources he
has and the challenges in
Walton County. To bring
businesses in, the county has
to be able to provide ad-
equate transportation, work
force and housing.
County Administrator
Ronnie Bell said he fre-
quently communicates with
Smith, but that it is hard to
evaluate someone's position
when he doesn't work with
him on a day-to-day basis.
However, he said, "I think
Bob's doing everything he
can."

Here is the fifth article in the series of breast health.
About Breast Cancer
Sometimes breast cells become abnormal. These abnormal cells
grow, divide, and create new cells that the body does not need and that
do not function normally. These extra cells form a mass of tissue called a
tumor.
Some tumors are benign, or noncancerous. Benign tumors generally
don't spread to other parts of the body, and don't cause major health
problems.
Other tumors are malignant or cancerous, and have the ability to
spread and damage healthy cells in other parts of the body. Malignant
breast tumors can spread to other tissues, such as lymph nodes, bone,
liver, lungs, and brain, and can cause death.
Medical experts do not know exactly what causes breast cancer.
Almost all breast cancer occurs in women. Breast cancer can develop in
men, but it is very rare and accounts for less that half of 1 percent of all
breast cancers.
There are certain factors that increase a woman's risk for breast
cancer.
Age: The chance of getting breast cancer increase as a woman gets
older. 94% of new cases of breast cancer occur in women over the age of
40.
Family History: A woman's risk of breast cancer increases if she has any
close relatives with either breast or ovarian cancer on either side of the
family. However, many women who develop breast cancer have no family
history of the disease.
Race: Breast cancer occurs more often in white women than Hispanic,
African American, Asian, or Native American women. African American
women, however, are more likely to die of breast cancer than women of
other racial and ethnic groups.
Childbearing History: Not having children, or having your first child later
in life (in your 30's or 40's) increases your chance of getting breast cancer.
Certain Medications: Using hormone replacement therapy (HRT) for sev-
eral years or longer after menopause may increase your risk.
Personal History of Breast Cancer: Women who have had breast cancer
in one breast have an increased risk of getting breast cancer in the other
breast. ,
The best ways to protect your overall health and may help reduce your
risk for certain cancers:
Eating 5 or more serving of fruits and vegetables each day.
Getting regular physical activity. Walking is a great all-around activity.
Maintaining a healthy weight.
Limiting alcohol intake to no more than one drink a day.
Not smoking, or quitting if you do smoke.
Woman at high risk for breast cancer may benefit from drug therapy.
Please call the Walton County Health Department at (850) 892-8015 or
(850) 267-3598 to see if you qualify for assistance with your mammo-
grams and breast exams.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, MAY 31, 2007


MISTI GRANT hosted the Memorial Day ceremonies at
the Walton County Courthouse Monday, May 28.



MEMORIAL FROM FRONT


to honor the memories of the
Americans who gave up their
lives serving their country in
times of conflict.
Reverend Marshall Dean
Whitaker led those in
attendance in prayer before
Smith, the keynote speaker,
came forward with a few
words.
"I'm glad to see everyone
here," Smith said. "All of you
who are here to say 'I care.'"
Smith spoke on the impor-
tance of Memorial Day, and
on making a daily practice of
honoring those in the mili-
tary, living and dead.
Special emphasis was
placed on a local hero, Sgt.
Timothy Padgett, recently
killed in Afghanistan. In fact,
the ceremony was dedicated
to his life and service.
Sheriff Ralph Johnson
was also in attendance and
said, "We are here today to
honor our service men and
women we hold them close
to our hearts."
These sentiments were
echoed by Miss Walton
County, Rhapsody Bogart,
whose father, Sgt. 1st Class
Peter Bogart, has served in


the U.S. Army since 1966.
Of the time when her fa-
ther was dispatched to Iraq
during Operation Iraqi Free-
dom, she said, "We learned
what honor, patriotism, and
faith are all about. They were
tough times, but we made it
through them."
When Sgt. Bogart came to
the podium, he talked can-
didly of the war in Iraq.
Bogart said that no matter if
one believes in the war or
not, "it doesn't matter. When
you serve, you say, 'Yes, sir,'
and you go. We must always
support and respect'those
who serve." He also spoke of
the importance of remember-
ing that many women make
up the armed services, too,
and that "their ultimate sac-
rifice" is just as vital to our
continued freedoms at home.
Senior vice president of
the Veterans of Foreign
Wars, retired Col. Robert
Fullencamp spoke passion-
ately about the sacrifices
made, "No service man or
woman ever 'gave up their
life' for nothing. They fought
for us."
Fullencamp was particu-

larly concerned with the his-
torical significance of the
achievements of veterans.
"They died to free us from
monarchy and despotism,
fascism, communism, and,
now, the evil of world-wide
terrorism."
The Boy Scouts also had a
short presentation after the
other speakers had con-
cluded their messages. Many
in the audience were visibly
moved by the words of one
young Scout, who read a brief
soliloquy.
Rev. Whitaker gave the
benediction and the audience
listened to the national an-
them while the attending
veterans saluted as the Navy
Sea Cadets retired the colors.
"Taps" ended the ceremony.

DeFuniak


Springs Little


League hosts


banquet
By REID TUCKER
With over 400 people in
attendance at the first an-
nual Little League Banquet,
DeFuniak Springs Little
League board member Cory
Godwin said of the event,
"We're going to need a bigger
venue. It was huge."
The evening got started at
an informal get-together at
4:30 p.m. at the Walton
County Community Center.
Snacks and drinks were
served, but the main empha-
sis was on getting to know
the guest speakers, two of
whom represented Auburn
Univeristy, Bobby
Humphrey and 'Major'
Ogilvie, and from the Univer-
sity ofAlabma, Joe Beckwith.
The trio posed for autographs
amidst a maelstrom of flash
photography and team
memorabilia, footballs, and
baseball caps, as well as con-
versing with those in
attendance.
As the focal point of the
evening's festivities, the
Little League players were
each given a ticket for them-
selves and two for anyone
else they should want to
bring. Hamburgers and hot
dogs were served before the
speakers took the podium at
6 p.m.
All of those in attendance
were seated by team mem-
bership. Nearly all of the
community center's space
was filled when it was time
for dinner to be served.
Godwin greeted the crowd,
saying that he was glad ev-
eryone could come together
to celebrate a great 2007
Little League season.
Godwin also expressed spe-
cial thanks to the parents,
because, he said, "They're the
one's that make you do your
homework after the game."


Godwin also noted, "The
last few years have been ex-
traordinarily successful This
was a sentiment that echoed
the successes of the past 54
years of consecutive Little
League baseball. Before din-
ner was served, young player
Cole Schultz recited the
Little League Pledge to a
standing ovation.
After dinner was con-
cluded, the Little League
board of directors were intro-
duced, followed by the intro-
duction of the evening's spon-
sor, Block and Ready Mix
USA.
Company president Steve
Shaw said that, on behalf of
his corporation, he was
happy to see the relationship
between the city of DeFuniak
Springs and his company,
and expressed hope of h con-
tinued partnership in the fu-
ture.
Godwin explained that
one of the signature aspects
of this corporation is commu-
nity involvement, especailly
with regard to children. He
further explained that their
sponsorship of the DeFuniak
Little League is only part of
their larger sponsorship role
in many other youth pro-
grams throughout Alabama
and Florida. "They saw a
need and they supplied the
solution," Godwin said.
After Shaw made his
opening remarks, he intro-
duced the evening's guest
speakers, all of whom Were
decorated ahtletes for their
respective schools, and whom
are all now employees with
Block USA.
The corporation, founded
by the son of legendary UA
football coach Paul "Bear"
Bryant, has often made a
practice of hiring proven
team members from the vari-

ous Alabama universities.
Godwin explained attributed
this to the former ahtletes
understanding of the team
dynamic and tenacity.
Former Univeristy of Ala-
bama running back Bobby
Humphrey was the first to
speak to the rapt audience.
The Birmingham native
holds the auspicious titles of
Offensive Player of the De-
cade for the 1980s and all-
time career and season rush-
ing leader for the Crimson
Tide, as well as being Block
USA's last quarter employee
of the quarter. Nevertheless,
as he related to the crowd,
when presented with the op-
portunity to speak at
Harvard University, he de-
clined in favor of attending
his son's basketball team's
picture night. However,
Humphrey said to the Little
League players, "I know
what it takes to be success-
ful, and it's not always on a
scoreboard."
Humphrey espoused some
essential truisms to the
young athletes: "'Everyone
who was successful had to
work,"Life is not easy,' '"There
are things you have to sacri-
fice,' 'Don't ever quit.'" He
also told parents, "The best
investment a parent can
make is in their children."
Next came 'Major' Ogilvie,
who told as he had been told
by Coach Bryant of "the
game of life," which prima-
rily consisted, as he told it,
of always "behaving with

class."
Ogilvie, also of Birming-
ham, was voted MVP of the
1980 Sugar Bowl and was
named to the All-Decade
team for the 1970s and '80s.
His principal interest these
days, he said, is being in-
volved in the lives of chil-
dren. "I can't tell you what a
treat it is to be around young
people," he said.
He then explained his own
secret to success a list com-
piled "from years of mis-
takes." For the most part, it
was the same as Humphrey's
advice, but he added, "Al-

/ s Wilkerson graduates with Ph.D.


WHAT A CABBAGE! Third grader Bree Hammac, par-
ticipated in the Bonnie plant cabbage program, at Paxton
School. Her cabbage weighed 21.1 pounds. Bree named the
cabbage "Miss Mattie" after her great-grandmother. Bree is
the daughter of Lance and Christy Hammac of Paxton.


Miranda E. Wilkerson,
daughter of Wesley and Jen-
nifer Wilkerson, of DeFuniak
Springs, received a Ph.D. in
applied German linguistics,
with special emphasis in sec-
ond language acquisition,
from the University of Wis-
consin-Madison, during its
spring commencement cer-
emony held on Friday, May
18, 2007, at the Kohl Center.
Miranda is a 1998 graduate
and valedictorian of Walton
High School. She recieved a
B.A. while on scholarship at
Indiana University, and then
was awarded a graduate
teaching fellowship at the
University of Wisconsin-
Madison.
The Department of Ger-
man, established in 1890, is
one of the oldest, largest, and
most highly-ranked in the
United States. At the Univer-
sity of Wisconsin-Madison,
Miranda taught first, second,
and third-year German lan-
guage courses, supervised a
multi-section course as head
teaching assistant, and
mentored incoming graduate
students as departmental
teaching assistant mentor.


She also conducted pedagogi-
cal workshops and worked
with undergraduate majors
of German through a
practicum in teaching lin-
guistics. In addition,
Miranda spent two years as
a Fulbright teaching assis-
tant in Austria, where she
taught English to university-
track high school students.
In 2005, Miranda was
awarded funding to continue
the study of another Ger-
manic language, Dutch, at a
Dutch immersion program,
"Zomercursus Nederlandse
Taal en Cultuur," in Zeist, the
Netherlands. Just recently,
she was awarded a College
of Letters and Sciences
Teaching Fellowship.
Miranda firmly believes in
connecting academia with
interested members of the
larger community. For ex-
ample, she and Professor Jo-
seph Salmons have pre-
sented a series of outreach
talks on German language
and immigration in Wiscon-
sin. Miranda has worked on
a number of other research
projects as well, including
three that resulted in refer-


eed presentations
at annual conven-
tions of American
Council on the
Teaching of For-
eign Languages
(ACTFL), a con-
ference that
draws thousands -
of attendees from
around the % world.
Miranda's dis- :.
sertation research *. '
deals with the: :- .
description. detec- --:
tion, and rating of "

pared to non-na-
tive "accent" in
German. Provid-
ing insights appli-
cable to a number
of research fields, including
second language acquisition,
foreign language pedagogy,
folk linguistics, phonetics,
and phonology, this study
emphatically acknowledges
the role of the listener in the
perception, mental construc-
tion, and interpretation of ac-
cent.
. Miranda will be joining the
Department of Foreign Lan-
guages and Literatures as an


assistant professor of Ger-
man at Western Illinois Uni-
versity. This public, state-sup-

Davis Watkins Funeral Home



Joel Davis and Travis Watkins are proud to announce that they are now fully licensed to

serve all of the burial and cremation needs of Walton County.

"Our funeral home is family-owned and operated, and is founded on dignity, integrity,

and the highest level of ethical standards. Families we serve can expect to save an average

of $2,500 for a traditional burial and over half on cremation services. This is possible due


to the fact that


we offer the same merchandise and services


based on the actual


Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Pricing. For families selecting cremation, we have

Walton County's only on-site cremation service, which eliminates the family from paying

higher prices to a local funeral home that cannot provide those services without third-party

assistance. Why pay thousands more when BETTER SERVICE IS OFFERED FOR

LESS?"

HuI melancholy now this day when you were born,
The memories of balloons, streamers and song. (
Huv. I loved to see the smile on your face and in your
eyes, in anticipation for all the surprises.
V.u waited with excitement at the thought of the ,p
party to come, with all your special friends, music, ,
pin :;,-nts and fun. And, of course, best of all, the cake /
mn.ide just for you, embellished with your name and ?
a:- and candles too. The magic of closing your eyes i
-0 r'd making your wish, that you, just knew, was
going to come true.
N.'.w, the only wish that I would ever make cannot |
bt- granted, for my sake. A great longing to see you,
h.:.ld you, and kiss you again overwhelms me and
bri ins me to my knees to pray. Still, even in my grief.
L' .mes memories that can never fade-your beautiful
mile, your spirit, aid your enthusiasm for life. The
. eetness of your soul, and your bubbly personality,
And deep within me I know what is true. The
kn.i-wledge that together again we will be, because,
u\ .'re waiting in Heaven for the ones who loved you.
where we'll live forever in eternity. (
Written by Brenda Waggoner

We love you and miss you very much
You are forever in our hearts

ence to Christ. They have nu-
merous national chart songs,
have recorded 16 recordings,

Award, and have collectively
won over 15 ECSGMA Bea-
con Awards, including five
Beacon Awards for "Male
Group of the Year." With all
this to their credit, the Gann
Brothers still gay the thing
they love most is ministering
in the local churches across
America. "We believe that if
America is going to come to
Christ, it will be through the

Freeport First Baptist Church

homecoming scheduled, June 3


All of us have worries, tri-
als and troubles. The Rev.
John Brown of Haddington,
England, had his share many
years ago. He said that if he
could live his life over, "I
should not desire one single
circumstance is great gain."
There is no reason really to
worry and fret. In Psalm 37:
1-9, we are told, "Fret not thy-
self because of evil doers..."
What causes us to fret? Con-
sider this:
We may have physical infir-
mities. Some people are mis-
erable in body. They are sick.
Instead of fret and worry, they
need a good physician and the
prayers of godly people.
Disappiontments in life
cause many people to fret. If


they are Christians, they will
soon learn to lay these things
aside. They already should
know that disappointments
may be God's appointments.
They are usually for our good.
The mystery of God's provi-
dential dealings cause many
of us to fret. We ought not to
expect to understand all of
God's dealings. We do not
know what will happen along
the trail of life, but we know
the Guide. All of us know we
can trust Him with any cir-
cumstance of life. He promises
to lead us in the right way, and
to make all things to work to-
gether for our good.
The inequalities, afflictions
and hardships of this life are
endured by many righteous


and godly people. Thinking of
these things disturb the
minds of many good folk. It
could be that this was on the
mind of the psalmist when he
wrote this Psalm 37. But
think of the final estate of the
righteous. Doesn't this
quickly reconcile our minds
toward the good things of
God?
Therreare many dark prob-
lems which we cannot solve
now. We must wait for clearer
and fuller revelation. We
must take the events of life
in faith, waiting for God, in
His own time, to give us a
better explanation. Don't be
guilty of the folly of fret.
Trust the Lord, Christ.


The annual homecoming of
First Baptist Church, Free-
port's, the oldest continuing
church, will begin at 10:30
a.m., Sunday, June 3.
The church is located at
430 Kylea Laird Drive, Free-


port.
First Baptist was
founded in 1874 as Mission
Baptist Church.
Pastor Ken Coots and the
membership of First Bap-
tist Church cordially invite


you to join in the celebration
of "the ties that bind."

be followed by a covered-dish
lunch in the fellowship hall.

East takes the win in Panhandle All-Star Softball Classic


By REID TUCKER
"Takes the win" is the only
way to say it. No one pulled
any punches on Tuesday
evening, May 22.

It was one of the highest-
scoring games of the season
and it was between two
teams overflowing with the
best softball talent from Tal-
lahassee to Pensacola.
One might think that two
teams comprised of all-star
players, in spite of never
playing together on the same
team, would be at least able
to hold the other team back
defensively. What happened
instead was a drag-out and
throw-down, an RBI-fest.
The East team was made
up of the big Leon County
team members, as well as the
best from Bay County and
other high-population
schools.
The West team had only
11 players versus the East's
15, and it had the players
from comparatively smaller
schools.
Only two Walton County
schools were represented by
the West team. Stephanie


Tanney of Freeport per-
formed catcher's duty, and
Walton High's Jesse Tucker
played second base.
Nevertheless, things
didn't go as they might have
according to the on-paper
match-up.

It appeared early on that
no one would score a run, so
faultless was either team's
defence, but the West pulled
out one run in the second in-
ning.
The margin was over-
turned in a major way when
the East scored five runs in
the fourth inning, with
Godby High's Candace Kirk
and Rutherford High's
Meeks and Cori Beck all get-
ting in on the action, each
scoring two runs apiece by
game's end.

It didn't help matters that
the West had two hard-to-
watch innings, with two er-
rors, capitalized on by the
East team.
By the sixth inning, the
score remained at 5-1. The
West reduced the East's lead
by scoring two runs of their


own, thanks largely to the They were on base with a

Athletics Aesthetics


By JOSHUA SMITH
BREAKOUT QUOTE:
"They're all pretty basic.
However, the baseball pin-
stripe uniforms are unique in
that they have raglan
sleeves, where the stripes go
all the way up to the collar.
That's not the usual look, but
it's one that the New York
Yankees have." UniWatch
founder Paul Lucas com-
menting on Walton sports
uniforms.
For most, they're nothing
more than just uniforms.
Paul Lucas would say that
"you don't get it."
For just over a year now,
Lucas has run
UniWatchBlog.com, a
website devoted to "The Ob-
sessive Study of Athletics
Aesthetics. "Prior to that, his
UniWatch column appeared
in the Village Voice starting
in 1999.
At the time, Lucas had
made a name for himself
writing about picky little de-
tails of consumer culture. His
natural eye for the "little
things" extended into an-
other one of his passions -
sports.
In an interview with the
Herald-Breeze, Lucas said,'
"People are very loyal to
brands and that's what a
sports team is a brand. My
girlfriend said, 'Maybe you
should do something with
this,' and I thought it was a
good idea." Thus, UniWatch
was born.
After the Village Voice
dropped their sports section,
the column was picked up by
online magazine Slate.com.
That was the move that re-
ally brought out UniWatch's
power. "It didn't occur to me
originally that it was a bet-
ter project for the web than
print," said Lucas.
However, the Internet's
ability to link to photos of the
uniforms that he writes
about made his words come
to life. His regular column
sill appears on ESPN.com's
Page 2 on a bi-weekly basis,


in addition to running his
daily updated website.
With thousands of people
visiting his website daily and
his fans lining up for paid
memberships that will be
launched this week, he's not
alone.
"I wasn't sure of the audi-
ence before I started it," said
Lucas, "but I wasn't sur-
prised to find out there were
a lot of people interested in
it."
Those who may think that
the world of sports uniforms
is straightforward and
simple may be surprised at
what they would find at
UniWatch. Opinions are
never in short supply.
A common theme at
UniWatch is the commnercial-
ization of sports, with the
emphasis on uniforms. "In
the past, the only thing that
drove a team's look was how
it looked," said Lucas. How-
ever, today, marketing and
sales of team merchandise
drives the look of a favorite
team as much, if not more,
than just how the uniform
looks.
"It's really unfortunate,"
he said. "The only thing that
should drive a team's look is
the aesthetics. It's another
example of the tail wagging
the dog."
Some teams have even
gone to the extreme of add-
ing new colors to a team's
palette or even changing the
entire color scheme of a team.
"I really find that odd,"
Lucas said. "I don't even
know how it can even be pos-
sible. How can you tell your
fans that before we were
ABC, and now we're XYZ?"
Lucas isn't standing still
on this one. Frustrated with
his beloved New York Mets'
introduction of black as a
color, he created an online
petition called "Ditch the
Black" to convince the Mets
to jettison the color.
It's not just colors and
teams that' are on Lucas'
naughty list. Manufacturers,


particularly Nike,.are also on
his radar screen. "Nike has
done a lot to promote the idea
of 'Team Nike,"' he said. Aim-
ing at the college level, Nike
has introduced stylized uni-
form templates that ihake
teams at different schools
have the same look, with the
team's respective colors in-
terchanged.
"It says that teams are
connected by their ties to
Nike, that the team isn't the
thing, Nike is," Lucas said.
"But it's really the other way
around. Nike should be hon-
ored to have these schools
wear their uniform. Frankly,
I find it offensive."
On the lighter side, what
does Lucas think about our
own Walton High School's
uniforms?
"They're all pretty basic,"
he said. "However, the base-
ball pinstripe uniforms are
unique in that they have rag-
lan sleeves, where the stripes
go all the way up to the col-
lar. That's not the usual look,
but it's one that the New York
Yankees have."
Lucas also said he. wasn't
a fan of the red collarbone
striping on the current foot-
ball uniforms. However, the
red trim will be gone after a
brief appearance on Walton's
football jerseys.
Next fall, the team will
have new uniforms, sans the
red trim. For all the appar-
ent pessimism around
UniWatch, Lucas does find
rays of hope in the uniform
universe.
A couple years ago, Major
League Baseball tried to put
a picture of spider webs on
the bases in promotion of the
upcoming release of the ma-
jor motion picture
"Spiderman 2."
However, public outcry
made baseball back out of the
deal. This is a perfect ex-
ample of what Lucas calls
"Logo Creep," where logos
other than a team's are find-
ing their way on to sports
uniforms. So far, major


American sports teams
haven't gone this far.
Lucas said, "I know
everything's for sale, but
some things just shouldn't
be. Sports teams aren't just
businesses. They're our civic
institutions and a source of
pride."

Spring hopes are eternal for sports fans


By PATRICK CASEY
The recent spring football
jamboree offered area fans
an early look at what to ex-
pect in the fall as Walton,
South Walton and Freeport
each hit the gridiron for 48
minutes of action against
their neighboring county ri-
vals.
Walton may have had the
most impressive perfor-
mance as the Braves moved
the football well, showed a
balanced attack, improve-
ment on defense and ability
to make the extra points that
haunted them in close losses
in 2006.
Walton had nine different
receivers catch passes in
their spread, no-huddle of-
fense. Tarrell Bramlet and
Keke Aguilar combined to hit
on 23-of-38 passes for 313
yards with four touchdowns
and two interceptions.
Isaac Jackson led the run-
ning game with 69 yards on
the ground as the Braves

night. Devron Ford con-
nected on 3-of-4 extra points
in the game as the Braves
looked to fix a problem that
contributed in four of their
six losses last season.
Walton's rotation on de-
fense was solid as the Braves
allowed only one touchdown,
which was aided by a pass
interference call that was
questionable in nature.
The Braves did struggle
with South Walton's power
running as Kenzie
Clemmons and Billy Burnett
found some success against
Walton in the Braves final
half of action. Walton will
face Tallahassee FAMU,
Chipley and Marianna in the
fall. All three are teams that
can play power football. The
Braves were not at full
strength on the line as Aus-
tin Wilson, Tyler Risner and
Will Allen all missed the con-
test with injuries. Wilson and
Allen will likely provide

control for most of the Lowe's
Motor Speedway of Concord,

For Hendrick Motorsports,
Sunday's win was the ninth
straight out of the last 10
races that they have taken
the cup and the Nextel
points. J.J. Yeley finished

third and Reed Sorenson and
Brian Vickers finished out
the top five positions.

challenge as the Seahawks

Davies hurt Walton with a
pair of grabs, the last setting
up Burnett's touchdown run
from two yards out.
A top concern for. the
Seahawks is turnovers. De-
spite a strong showing
against Freeport, the
Seahawks had three fumbles
in that half of action. South
Walton has struggled to hold
onto the football in key situ-
ations in their short history.
South Walton looked more
comfortable on defense in the
spring and could make
strides if the turnovers and
penalties are kept at the
minimum. This fall, they will
have four district foes to face
in Baker, Northview, Vernon
and Holmes County. A play-
off berth is not out of the
question if the squad can
throw the ball enough to
keep teams from stacking the
line against Clemmons. Op-

They were Brandi

lanta and Cassie Hearon of
Maryville, TN.
Hollingsworth is a 6-2
player averaging 12 points
and eight rebounds a game
for Pacelli High School.
Rateree, a 5-7 left-handed
point guard, averaged 12
points and seven assists in
her senior year at DeKalb
High School; and Hearon,
who could be a small forward
or power forward, averaged
10 points and eight rebounds
during her final year at Heri-
tage High School.


Summer sports camps


ponents must watch out for
JuWayne Tanner as the be-
hemoth lineman can be a
force on either side of the
ball.
Freeport struggled to
move the ball against Walton
as the Bulldogs are still look-
ing for a go-to back. Josh
Thomas is gone and Lloyd
Anderson with him, and the
Bulldogs will have to look to
Drew Farris and company to
find a running game.
Logan Caudill and Cole
Weeks showed some passing
ability and Hoss Morrison
could be the go-to receiver in
the fall.
Freeport's defense always
finds a way to keep the squad'
in the game and kicker Spen-
cer Martin can be a weapon
when the team gets a short


field or a turnover in enemy
territory.
Points were hard to come
by in 2006 and 2007 will
likely be no different. The
Bulldogs play in an eight-
team district, meaning seven
district games will be the key
to their season. Jay, Port St.
Joe, Wewahitchka and Lib-
erty County are all road
games, though, which does
not bode well. (Florida and
USC weren't available to
play? Jacksonville Bolles or
Tallahassee Lincoln?)
Hope springs eternal in
the spring and each team
had areas to smile about af-
ter six months of the equip-
ment sitting in storage. In 75
days fall practice starts, and,
for football fans, life begins
anew.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, MAY 31, 2007 PAGE 11-B


Summer literacy program at WMS


By REID TUCKER
Following close on the
heels of the recent "Surf into
Summer Reading" Literacy
Week at Walton Middle
School (WMS), comes the
eponymous summer reading
program, which school offi-
cials say is "optional but
strongly supported" by the
administrators and faculty.
The program is for all stu-
dents, grades six through
eight.
According to literature
provided by program offi-
cials, the goals of the read-
ing program are to "foster a
love of reading, to promote
independent reading and to
ensure that students' reading
"skills are maintained at their
current level."

Richard Allington, for-
merly of the University of
Florida, has been published
numerous times on this very
subject. He wrote that "a
summer reading loss of three
months accumulates to a
two-year gap by the time the
kids are in middle school. It
suggests that focusing all of
our efforts on improving
schools isn't going to work."
Dr. Dale Yount, WMS read-
ing coach, echoes Allington's
sentiment, saying that she
has found that "children can


regress up to six months if
they don't read during the
summer break."
It may seem obvious that
summer reading would do
just this, but officials said
that it has become increas-
ingly beneficial for students
to read during the summer
months to prevent "losing the
reading gains they make dur-
ing the school year," said
Yount.
The plan is a simple one:
students are encouraged to
read a minimum of four
books during the summer,
three of which must come
from a recommended reading
list enclosed in the informa-
tional packet being sent out
with students during this,
the last week of school before
summer break. The other
book may be of the students'
choosing, though one must be
a nonfiction book.
The WMS administration
is not absent in this en-
deavor, as Assistant Princi-
pal Vivian Powell made
appearances at West DeFu-
niak and Maude Saunders
Elementary schools in the
past weeks promoting the
program for incoming sixth-
grade students, as well as
providing teachers with the
reading list.
Because it's simply com-


mon knowledge that children
often need incentive for this
sort of thing, when school is
back in session teachers will
add two points to a student's
first nine-weeks' grade if the
condition of at least four
books is met successfully. Ad-
ditionally, library media spe-
cialists will construct what
can best be referred to as a
"Reader's Hall of Fame,"
casting off any notion of mod-
esty that exceptional readers
might have had by posting
the names of those students
who read more than the re-
quired number of books..Gen-
erally, the bar will be set at
10 or more books.

WMS Media Specialist
Kip Baker said, "last year we
had about 12 students to
have their pictures and
names posted on the hall of
fame."
September 18, WMS will
play host to what Baker said
will be "the best literacy cel-
ebration yet." It might be
tough to t6p the giant boom-
box and snow cones from the
previous one. Last year,
Baker said, the qualifying
students were taken to Pizza
Hut for lunch and then taken
to the Walton County Public
Library for a tour of the
youth section. From there,


they went to The Book Store
on Baldwin Avenue where
the students were each al-
lowed to purchase one book.
"In addition to all that, we
also let the children pick out
one book from our library
here at the school to keep,"
Baker said. "We had nearly
40 children who participated
last year," Baker said.

"I was given suggestions
by the language arts teach-
ers for the official list," Baker
said. The books on the list
also adhere to the Sunshine
State Young Reader's Award
Program Master List of
Titles 2007-2008. Officials in- '
dicated that there may be
concern as to whether some
books might be perceived as
being on the difficult side for
some students, however, any
book is eligible for approval
by either parents/guardians
themselves, or public librar-
ians.

"We chose books based on
availability in town, either
through the public library or
for purchase at various
places," Baker said. "The se-
lections are based on a wide
variety of popular genres and
reading levels also."
In order to further stimu-
late the interest of young


readers, the program officials
selected more series books
for this year's list. "They (the
students) like to read books
in a series because they be-
come attached to the charac-
ters," Baker explained. Fur-
ther, she said that the more
dramatic nature of a book
series arrested students' oth-
erwise waning summer at-
tention spans.
After passing out the offi-
cial list to students on Mon-
day, May 21, before the sixth-
period bell, Baker said that
she "had students come to me
to get this list. They were re-
ally excited to get ahold of it."
How to prove one actually
read one of the books in the
selection lists? There are a
variety of projects that must
be completed after reading
each book, ranging from a
"literary collage," where stu-
dents list the dominant
themes of the book and illus-
trate it with examples from
other books or visual media
that share a similar theme,
to a "plot pizza," where the
slices represent critical plot
events and thematic ele-
ments. Baker said that the
students "really seem to en-
joy the projects and having a
list to chose from." Seventh-
grade student Sarah. Bailey
agreed, "it kept me occupied.


I got to read a lot of really
good books."
To make additionally sure
that rural students can ac-
tively participate in the pro-
gram, the information packet
sent home contains the
schedule of the public library
system's bookmobile. The
bookmobile functions as a li-
brary on wheels and will be
stocked with several of the
titles on the summer reading
list.

Doing away with all ex-
cuses, the program modera-
tors list The Book Store as an
alternative location to find
the books on the list should
the DeFuniak Public Library
not have them in stock.
Dr. Yount said that the
program is a necessity be-
yond the added benefit of bo-
nus points or the distinction
that goes with the reading
hall of fame. "If parents
would only read with their
children, things would be so
much better. Even if it's just
the newspaper or the mail -
anything is better than noth-
ing. Yes, children need to re-
lax and sleep and unwind
(during the summer), but
they also need to read, now,
more than ever with our
world becoming more and
more competitive.

evaluating yourself. We're
none of us alike." He con-
cluded with the remark, "Al-
ways just lay your ears back
and do your best everyday."
Finally, the representative
of Auburn University took to
the stage and all the War
Eagles in the crowd let him
know how happy they were.
Baseball star Joe Beckwith
jokingly remarked, "Now,
we've finally got some class


up here!" Beckwith pitched
for Auburn's baseball team
from 1976 to 1977 and was a
second-round draft pick of
the L.A. Dodgers in 1977. He
pitched for seven years in the
major leagues, mainly for
Los Angeles. While pitching
for the Kansas City Royals in
1980, he helped to secure
Kansas City's World Series
win.
Reflecting on his current


occupation with Block USA,
Beckwith said, "As you grow
up, (you'll realize) it's not the
sport you're playing that
you'll be doing." He quickly
added, "It's you who will de-
cide where you'll go in life,


but you've got to learn to lose
before you can learn how to-
win."
After everyone had-fin-
ished speaking and after the
tremendous applause and
cries of "War-Eagle!" and


"Roll Tide!" the individual
teams and players of the
Little League were recog-
nized by the board of direc-
tors.
Godwin, as well as the rest
of the board of directors, is


hopeful for a continued rela-
-tionship between the Little
League and Block USA. He
said that the event was "tre-
mendously successful. This is
something that we hope to
continue."

Confusion surrounds



new traffic corridor



recommendations


By LEAH STRATMANN
Misinformation about
what is and what is not hap-
pening with the recommen-
dation of the Northwest
Florida Traffic Corridor Au-
thority (NWFTCA), which
was adopted at a meeting on
April 5, 2007 swirl around
the county like a kite out of
control.
Linda Young of the Clean
Water Network recently filed
an administrative challenge
to the authority's plans but
had been informed a bill was
in the works that would have


limited the ability of the citi-
zenry to file such challenges.
She was told House Bill 985
would amend Florida State
Law 120 (FS120), which is
the administrative procedure
law for the state of Florida.
In an attempt to track this
down, Rep. Don Brown and
his administrative staff
member Brad Drake read the
bill, which has passed both
the state House and the Sen-
ate and awaits the signature
of the governor, to see if it in
any way impacted citizens'
rights. Before doing this how-


ever, Brown said virtually
every bill that is passed
changes FS120 in some way.
"The availability of FS120
is exclusively for redressing
statutory issues. This provi-
sion provides for statutes,
not constitutional matters,"
Brown said. "Chapter 120
can be changed..That is not
locked down- as a constitu-
tional law, but I am aware of
no pending legislation with
regard to the NWFTCA."
Further, Brown pointed

Walton County Fire Rescue


officials still concerned


By LAKEN DAVIS
"Be vigilant when you see
smoke," Walton County Fire
Rescue Fire Chief Eddie Riv-
ers said. "We'd rather have
someone call and it be'noth-
ing than to not receive phone
calls for hours and it be a
very large fire."
The 2007 fire season is be-
ing compared to that of 1998,
when much south Florida'
was in flames. Rainfall defi-
cits have resulted in severe
drought conditions through-
out the area. According to the
latest national drought moni-
tor, more than 80 percent of
Florida is experiencing mod-
erate or severe drought con-
ditions. Currently, there are
around 200 wildfires in the
state.
Currently, Walton County
is under a burn ban issued
by county officials, as well as
a state-wide ban issued by
Florida State Agricultural
Commissioner Charles
Bronson.
The Walton County Fire
Rescue (WCFR) advises
people to not burn anything
at all and to report any in-
stances of smoke to local au-


thorities. Fire Marshall
Johnny Padgett advises citi-
zens to be aware of their sur-
roundings, because that will
enable the community to pre-
vent more fires.
"Listen to your local news
stations," he said. "Be aware
of your surroundings and
what is going on at all times."
Citizens can grill in en-
closed grills, but not over
open flames. No burning of
leaves is allowed. Cigarette
butts should not be thrown
out of car windows or on the
ground at all. The penalties
for these offenses can include
fines, jail time and a possible
second-degree misdemeanor
charge.
Rivers, along with
Padgett, said a change in lo-
cal weather conditions is not
expected any time soon. It
will be several weeks before
a significant amount of rain-
fall is expected to occur. The
small amount that has fallen
is not enough to change cur-
rent drought conditions.
They advise citizens to not
have a false sense of security.
According to the Florida
Department of Agriculture


and Consumer Services'
(FDACS) Web site, drought
conditions are -expected to
persist and projections sug-
gest that rainfall amounts
throughout the summer
months will not be enough to
relieve the long-term dry-
ness. However, the fire sea-
son is expected to decline by
mid-June. The outlook for
the rest of this year's season
is continuing dry conditions
with significant potential for
lightning-ignited fires when
summer rains begin in early
June. The upcoming hurri-
cane season will help replen-
ish low water levels across
the state.
One large concern for citi-
zens is the smoke that can
blow in from wildfires
throughout the area. It can
cause low visibility during
the overnight and early
morning hours. Also, those
with respiratory problems
might consider staying in-
doors.
The Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection (DEP)
has issued a statewide air-

Hurricane


season
By REID TUCKER
No hurricanes made land-
-fall on any U.S. coastline in
2006, thanks largely to a
highly overactive season of
El Niflo. The University of
Colorado has predicted a
very active hurricane season
for 2007. Releasing their of-
ficial report on April 3, the re-
search group announced that
they felt the Atlantic basin
"will likely experience a very
active hurricane season."
However, the infamous
2005 season was uncharac-
teristitcally violent, with 27
named storms, 15 hurri-
canes, and seven violent hur-
ricanes. According to the re-
search group, this hurricane
season is not looking nearly
so bad.
"We are calling for a very
active hurricane season this
year, but not as active as the
2004 and 2005 seasons," said
Phil Klotzbach of the Colo-
rado State hurricane forecast
team. "Based on our latest
forecast, the probability of a
major hurricane making
landfall along the U.S. coast-
line is 74 percent, compared
with the last-century aver-
age of 52 percent."
Why the change in the
weather between one year
and the next? El Nifno.
In 1997, it reached its
highest mark ever, hence the
absence of serious hurri-
canes. In 2006, it was at its
second highest level, inhibit-


begins
ing what might have been.
another killer season.
"In December and Janu-
ary, we had a weak to mod-:
erate El Niflo event in the
tropical Pacific Ocean. When
you have El Nifno conditions
during the hurricane season,
it increases vertical wind
shear across the tropical At-
lantic and typically results in
a weaker tropical cyclone'
season," Klotzbach said.
This year, though, no such:
buffer exists. El Nifio dissi-
pated in the late winter'
months.
This effectively means.
that, according to research-;
ers, there is a strong chance.:
of a major storm making
landfall on the U.S. coast-:
line. The bad news is that-
this means there is a 49 per-
cent chance of that one storm
hitting the Gulf Coast, from
the Florida Panhandle west
to Texas.
Klotzbach explained that
the 2004-2005 hurricane
seasons were "unusually vio-
lent."
William Gray, long time
hurricane analyst and fore-
caster at the University of
Colorado, said, "The activity,
of these two years was un-
usual, but within the natu-.
ral bounds of hurricane
variation."

out that the Legislature does
not have the ability by stat- "'
ute to deprive someone of a
right provided in the state is L

tutional amendment.
"There is always going to pla
be someone who is unhappy len,
with the plans, which is ex-
actly the same reason we
don't make progress; plans
are always tied up with legal


challenges," he said.


"My issue with 'he
IF
transportation au-
thority is they oiave
made decisions
about having these
roads without
enough input from
the public. Most
people didn't even
know this wvas hap-
pening." Qnda Young of
the Clean WA6er Network


Cindy Price, a legislative
analyst for the Florida De-
partment of Transportation,
said HS 985 was solely cre-
ated to give the transporta-
tion authority the right to
audit agencies of the FDOT.
The transportation authority
is the oversight authority for
the FDOT and there is noth-
ing in the language referring
to the NWFTCA in any way.
"My issue with the trans-
portation authority is they
have made decisions about
having these roads without
enough input from the pub-
lic. Most people didn't even
know this was happening.
There has not been any-
where near enough public
discussion. The decisions
they have made actually con-
flict with previous planning,
with land purchases that
have been made by the state,
with various designations
such as scenic highways, and
outstanding waters. A lot of
what is already in place in
the Panhandle has either
been ignored or will get run
over by these roads, no pun
intended," said Young.
Young says hundreds of
millions of tax dollars has
been spent in protecting spe-
cial places across the Pan-
handle, such as the thou-
sands of acres purchased
along the Choctawhatchee
River and purchased by the
Northwest Florida Water
Management District. This
is just one area that will be
affected by the plan adopted
on April 5. The plan calls for
a new bridge to accommodate
a turnpike across the
Choctawhatchee River.
"The other thing affecting
the Walton County area is
the plan making U.S. 331 a
four-lane highway. Here's my
question about this, my un-
derstanding is the money is
going to come from foreign
investors to build the roads.
There will be little meters
along the road and road trav-
elers will have to establish
accounts with the state and
a tracking device will be lo-
cated on your car and ac-
count deductions made each
time you travel on the road.
U.S. 331 is the only way to
get from DeFuniak Springs
to the south end of the
county," she noted.
"Instead of the state build-
ing a adequate roads for
Florida taxpayers to travel
from one end of the county to
the other, the NWFTCA is
going to allow foreign inves-
tors to own our roads and
make money from our travel
to and from work. This is our
community we want to make
this decision, not some hand-
picked group of developers
selected by the governor. We
have a ],._l right to have a
voice in this and the author-
ity has said 'no you don't, sit
down and shut up,'" Young
asserted,

member of the NWFTCA. "If
there was a toll road that
U.S. 331 fed into, the monies
raised from the tolls could be
used to four-lane U.S. 331
and improve or build another
bridge." Basically any new
road built that feeds into an
existing road could be a toll
road under the plan with the
funds generated used for con-
tinuing with other aspects of
the plan.
Anders said more public
input is what the association
was trying to achieve. "We
meet on the third Thursday
of every month in one of the
eight affected counties. The
website is nwftca.com and it
details each of our meetings.
We are just trying to include
the public. We have a vision.
There is no determination as
yet. Nothing can be done
without public input and
more public input.
"We have been presented
information from engineers.
The plan would be an im-
,provement for everyone in
the Panhandle in Florida,
but it is designed primarily
to help the eight county
area," Anders said.
Young counters with,
"They did not do what the
law told them to do which
was to alleviate traffic on
U.S. 98 and create new
evacuation routes. The whole
thing is a scam and the whole
thing should go away. We
have metropolitan planning
organizations whose function
it is to plan roads and they
were not even coordinated
with. They are just now mak-
-ing appointments with
county commissioners about
this, and it is possible the
county commissions in the
affected communities are as
clueless as the public about
this plan."
Communication can be
improved with the media and
county lawmakers, Anders
acknowledged. "One of my
attempts as a member is to
answer all questions by the


SEASON
2005, 2006 experienced
slightly below-average activ-
ity with no landfalling hur-
ricanes," said Gray.
"We've had an upturn of
major storms since 1995. We
(at the hurricane research
center) think this upturn of
major storms will continue
for another 15 or 20 years."
This trend, increasing
steadily since 1995, is not
blamed by either Klotzbach
or Gray on global warming.
"Although global surface
temperatures have increased
over the last century and
over the last 30 years, there
is no reliable data available
to indicate increased hurri-
cane frequency or intensity
in any of the globe's seven
tropical cyclone basins,"
Gray said. "Me-
teorologists who study tropi-
cal cyclones have no valid
physical theory as to why
hurricane frequency or inten-
sity would necessarily be al-
tered significantly by small
amounts of global mean tem-
perature change," he said.
The National Hurricane
Center, the Federal Emer-
gency Management Agency
(FEMA), and the National
Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration (NOAA) are
not taking any chances. All
three have released hurri-
cane preparedness plans for
those living in the path of
these storms.
FEMA's version of the check-
list, called "Get Ready '07,"
lays out a plan to educate the
public on potential threats
resulting from hurricanes,
including storm surge, flood-
ing, tornados, and fire, as
well as providing a sample
family disaster plan. The


media. I believe all the board
members are open to this
too," he said.
Anders said it was para-
mount to provide parallel
routes to U.S. 98. He said 65
percent of the traffic travel-
ing from Gulf Breeze to Fort
Walton Beach continues to
Panama City.
"If there was a route
through EglinAir Force Base
to U.S. 331, it would take
traffic offU.S.98. If you were
trying to evacuate from a
hurricane, you could get to
U.S. 331 and then go north."
Another parallel route go-
ing east to west and giving
people additional access to
the Bay County airport is
viewed with some suspicion
as it provides a super high-
way to a number of resorts
and communities developed
by the St. Joe Company.
Many citizens contend it
would be cheaper and easier
to add lanes to Interstate
Highway 10 from Pensacola
east to Tallahassee. For the
plan to work as designed, Eg-
lin AFB would have to be
willing to swap land, some-
thing they have traditionally
been reluctant to do.
- "We want to work with all
groups that are impacted.
The bridge across the river
would have to be studied by
the FDOT along with other
environment agencies that
study road impact. People
ask why the studies were not
done first but millions of dol-
lars of studies are needed,
and we need to have a start-
ing point. It is a vision. Roads
could move 10 miles in any
direction from, the current
plan after environmental
studies are completed," he
emphasized.
"We are trying to stay as
close to U.S. 98 as possible
so we can have feeder roads
to U.S. 98. This plan is not
set in stone."
The next meeting of the
NWFTCA is at 10 a.m. EST,
Thursday, June 21 in
Wakulla County at the Se-
nior Citizens Center, 33
Michael Drive, in
Crawfordville, FL.

Author shares fish stories


with local children


By JEFFREY POWELL
Panama City native and
accomplished author Timo-
thy Weeks recently shared
his book, "The Wise Mullet of
Cook Bayou," with a group of
youngsters at Cessna Park in
Santa Rosa Beach. The gath-
ering was sponsored by the
Walton County Library's
children's story time pro-
gram.
As a child of a commercial
fisherman living on Cook
Bayou, Weeks learned first-
hand the trials and tribula-
tions of the fisherman's life.
Weeks has skillfully woven
these life lessons into his two
children's books, the second
of which is titled "Ol' Middler
Saves The Day."
After graduating from
Baylor University, Weeks
lived in New Orleans and
New York City. He also spent
the last. 10 years as a
freelance.journalist in Eu-
rope. Weeks now divides his
time between Europe and the
southeast United States,
touring with his mother,
Jeanne, who just happens to
be the illustrative talent be-
hind his books, storytelling
and sharing his work with
children of all ages.
"It has really been nice to
work with him as an adult,"
Jeanne said. "He is a good

first item on the list rein-
forces the words of National
Hurricane Center Director
Bill Proenza, who said,
"Preparation through educa-
tion is less costly than learn-
ing through tragedy." That is,
families should be knowl-
edgeable of all the potential
risks associated with hurri-
.canes and plan accordingly.
Other items on the list in-
clude finding a safe room in
the event of heavy winds,
though it turns the conven-
tional wisdom of "theroom
with the most interior walls"
on its head. The safest place
to ride out a storm may not
be in your home at all, but
elsewhere in the community.
The list also suggests an out-
of-state contact, should the
family become separated, for
the purposes of a meeting or
contact point. Also, the list
mentions the usual items:
check with insurance compa-
nies about flood damage cov-
erage, stock up on non-per-


ishable foods, take CPR and
first-aid classes, and post
emergency numbers for the
kids.
In another helpful hint,
drivers are advised to avoid
standing water. If progress
can only be made by driving
through it, do so slowly.
All of this is subject to
change, though. The lack of
El Nifio only provokes the
formation of a strong La*
Nifia, quite literally its oppo-
site. Generally, in times
when La Nifia develops,
storm activity has been in
the upper end of the pre-
dicted range.

According to Gerry Bell,
Ph.D with NOAA, activity
can be perhaps even higher
depending on how strong La
Nifia becomes. Bell said,
"Even if La Nifia'does not
develop, the conditions asso-
ciated with the ongoing ac-
tive hurricane era still favor
an above-normal season."

Owl's Head holds first


annual "Hootin' Shindig"


By JEFFREY POWELL
Close to 300 people at-
tended the first annual
"Hootin' Shindig" at Owl's
Head development north of
Freeport. The May 19 event
was held as a celebration
commemorating the grand
opening of the Owl's Head
sales center.
Throughout the afternoon,
attendees enjoyed music
played by the local group
Dread Clampitt, while eating
what seemed like an endless
supply of food. Plenty of en-
tertainment was provided for
the children as well. Young-
sters could be found riding
ponies or bouncing in one of
the inflatable trampolines
set up around the area.
"We are pleased with the


opportunity to develop a com-
munity atmosphere at Owl's
Head," said Project Coordi-
nator Buell Cobb. "We intend
to do everything top rate so
that the city of Freeport and
the surrounding citizens will
be proud."
Cobb said Owl's Head has
been designed to create a
sense of community for both
the residents and the people
already living in the area.
As part of the days festivi-
ties Owl's Head president of
development, Jeff Tucker,
and CEO of the Walton
County Chamber of Com-
merce, Dawn Moliterno,
placed items into a time cap-
sule to be opened in 25 years.
Some of the items included
were a photo of a gas station


showing current fuel prices,
several newspapers (includ-
ing the Herald-Breeze) con-
cerning the recent rash of
fires, a compact disc of Dread
Clampitt music, local restau-
rant menus and a photo of
Freeport Mayor Mickey
Marse.
Saturday's event was just
one of many community
based events Tucker has
planned for the development.
"We came to the city of
Freeport early on in the de-
velopment stages," said
Tucker. "This is an inclusive
plan."
In the future Owl's Head
plans to have drive-in movie'
nights, concerts, art shows
and fireworks displays for all
to enjoy.

Florida Division of Forestry's
Web site. Green, growing
landscape materials are rec-
ommended instead of dead,
dry materials like pine straw.
Lawns and landscape mate-
rials should be watered and
kept moist.
"Once it hits that green
grass, it will stop or slow
down," Padgett said, refer-
ring to fire.
One element that may
have increased the size of the
fire in south Walton was the
dry landscaping material
that is used around many of
the homes in the area. How-
ever, the cause of the fire is
still being investigated, ac-
cording to Rivers and
Padgett.
The fire in the Black
Creek area was caused by a
lightening strike in the
evening, said Rivers and
Padgett. The fire burned
throughout the night before
the smoke was spotted and
then reported in the morn-
ing.' It had a 16-hour head
start on WCFR. Eighteen for-
estry tractors were employed
to keep the fire from spread-
ing.
"Well, because of the Black
Creek fire, people have been
more cautious," Rivers said.
The WCFR has limited re-
sources from the Florida
State Division of Forestry
,because many of their units


have been deployed through-
out Florida. The strike
teams, tractors and supplies
they provide are being
stretched throughout the
state. The WCFR had extra
people working during the
past few weeks in order to
dispatch multiple crews
when fires are reported.
"We want to thank the
community for their support
and all their help," Rivers
said. They have provided
food and support to crews
during the season.
Another.fire recently oc-
curred between Senterfit and
Cosson roads, in the Pleas-
ant Ridge community. It was
about one acre in size. Some-
one in the community alerted
the WCFR. Had the call come
in five or 10 minutes later,
the fire would have been
much larger and harder to
contain, said Rivers.
Another way that fires can
start is from hot exhaust
pipes touching dry debris or
grass. Debris from hurri-
canes in the past year is dry-
ing and becoming susceptible
places for fires to begin.
"One match or lightning
strike, and its ready to burn,"
Padgett said.
For further information or
to report smoke or suspicious
activity, call the WCFR office
or any local fire or police sta-
tion.

By LEAH STRATMANN
Snookie Paris is on a quest
to transform the area from
traditional landscaping to
sustainable landscaping in
order to avoid water short-
ages, eliminate pesticides
and prevent the loss of native
species due to the way we
landscape. She presented her
program last week at the
monthly meeting of the
South Walton Community
Council (SWCC).
A master gardener for
more than a decade, Paris
was formerly employed by
Watercolor and Alys Beach
before going into business for
herself.,
* "Sustainable landscaping
works in harmony with na-
ture," she said. The impacts
of traditional landscaping in-
clude. air noise from
lawnmowers, weed eaters,
and leaf blowers, and water
pollution from pesticides.
"There is harm to the
biodiversity of the area and
impacts to public health. Tra-
ditional landscaping is cost
and labor intensive and in
the end we have a monoto-
nous views. Each year $25
billion dollars is spent on
lawn care and 40 hours a
year are spent in mowing the
grass," Paris noted.
"The goals of sustainable
landscaping include reducing
present pollution levels, con-
serving natural resources
through planting native and
drought plants, providing di-
versity and density, and hav-
ing the right plant at the
right place. Native plants are
better adapted to our local
environment," she said.
Paris said if yards are
planted with native plants
and something dies in the
middle of the yard, it would
not be very noticeable. "Us-
ing appropriate plants
around your house can re-
duce electric bills by as much
as 25 percent. If you've ever
sat under a shade tree on a
hot day, you can see the value
of having the right trees
around %iur home."
Not much water is needed
to sustain native plants
When thit-y aret planted the
corretct application oforlganic
or timn:--released tertilizers
can hel p them-n to thrive. "Wa-
ter can be retained in gar-
dens by using mulch When
feasible, u.e hirand tools. next


best is electric, then four-
cycle gas tools, not two-
cycle." Paris suggested.
Paris also suggested using
compost to strengthen the
soil and keep it healthy. Us-
ing slides, she showed areas
in the county where sustain-
able landscapes have been
installed and other areas
where they have not. She
noted that when grass is
planted right up to the base
of a tree, ultimately the tree
will fall victim to "weed
eater" disease from the grass
being cut with a weed eater
and the device hitting the
tree.
"There is very little native
to the landscape in Walton
County. Turf is not sustain-
able because you have to wa-
ter and feed it all the time.
. Paris noted that Ruskin
Place in Seaside has been
planted with sustainable
plants, as has Rosemary
Beach. She suggested that
areas being cleared for build-
ing homes not be clear-cut.
"You can keep some of what-
ever is growing there. It is
native and doing fine on its
own."
She-noted that often Ba-
hia grass is planted in open
areas and it isn't very attrac-
tive. Instead she suggested
throwing out wildflower
seeds ala Lady Bird Johnson.
The fact that they are wild-
flowers means nobody has to
attend to them.
A slide showing a red
maple growing on the prop-
erty of an abandoned house
graphically showed how the
tree has not stopped growing
and it is a tree, which is cool-
ing in the summer and
warming in the winter.
"You can walk into the
state forest right now and see
how lush it is right now in
the middle of a drought. That
is sustainable planting, what
grows here without help.
Mother Nature hasn't
skipped a beat out there."

Any time we honor our vet-
erans, I want to be a part of
that. If we concentrate on
honoring those who are serv-
ing and those who have
served, the whole country
will benefit."
Thursday's ceremony was
particularly poignant, com-
ing on the heels of Staff Sgt.
Timothy Padgett's funeral.
Padgett, of Defuniak
Springs, was killed recently
while serving in Afghanistan.
Padgett's daughter, Summer
Lynn, was present at the cer-
emony and helped place a
wreath on the monument.
The monument was un-
veiled as a rendition of
"Amazing Grace" was per-
formed by Walton County


Tax Collector Rhonda Skip-
per. A 21-gun salute was also
given by local Air Force per-
sonnel. The South Walton
High School Band provided
musical interludes during
the ceremony.
"Our organization is hon-
ored that we are able to dedi-
cate this monument in Wal-
ton County," said Bill
Sharon, senior vice-com-
mander of the Military Order
of the Purple Heart Chapter
566.
Sharon invited any service
member that has received a

T h e -
roadways
were con-
gested,
the res- -
taurants
and local
spots
w e r e
jammed,
and the weather was
perfect for hitting
the beach. The first
weekend of the tour-
ist season hit this
past weekend and
activities for every
one in the household
could be found.

If you ventured out of your
front door this past weekend,
you would have noticed li-
cense plates from every state
in the nation as they were
making their way to the
Florida Emerald Coast for
the kick-off weekend of sum-
mer. From Maine to Mon-
tana, SUV's, Suburbans and
minivans, had luggage and
bikes strapped to the back of
the vehicle, or riding piggy-
back on the roof.
With the official start of
tourist season and this Fri-
day being the opening day for
hurricane season, tourists
came down in record
amounts for the holiday
weekend. Once they arrived,
there were numerous activi-
ties for all to do and a few
new events that dotted the
coastline.
At Rosemary Beach, the
third annual Rosemary
Beach Montessori School
benefit, entertained over 200


guests with Zydeco music, a
sit-down catered meal, a si-
lent auction and a chance to
win a Sea-Doo speed boat
and $50,000 in cash. The
event raised thousands and
all proceeds went to building
the new school building on
the property.
Next door at The Village,
the Village Art Festival
hosted nearly a dozen local
and regional artists in a wide
variety of media including
pastels, watercolor, oil, pot-
tery and jewelry. Set along
Cty. Rd. 30A with the shoot-
ing fountains as a back-drop,
tourists and locals mean-
dered through the artists
tents and exhibits, looking
for that "just perfect" master-
piece.
In Seaside, the concert se-
ries continued as people
packed the lawns of the
lycium for another evening of
local bands and regional acts.
The concert series continues
throughout the summer at
Seaside. .
Many resorts and proper-
ties did not have public ac-
tivities, but hosted various
one-man art shows, concerts
and dining specials. Various
properties had their annual
homeowners meeting and
places like Alyc Beach,
opened their doors to land-
owners and potential buyers,


as they were
serenaded by
"1 an aaray of

pling some lo-
cal cuisine.
Hundreds
[,'v had already
begun to ar-
rive this past
weekend for
the Boeing
Championship
Golf Tournament taking
place at Sandestin until June
3. Avid golfers and loyal fans,
packed Hwy. 98 to get into the
various property golf courses,
to get a glimpse of their fa-
vorite pro golfer.
The week-long event has
brought in some of the top
players in the sport.The
Champions Tour is making
its appearance for the second
year in-a-row along the Gulf
Coast.
You know when the
weather warms up, events
pop-up all along Cty. Rd. 30A,
lines at restaurants and lo-
cal night spots are on a two
hour wait. The constant flow
of tourists visiting from all
over the United States, that
have come not only for the
beaches, but have heard and
read about the nightlife, the
shopping, the restaurants
and numerous attractions
that consume our piece of
paradise.

Despite the extra time and
effort it will take us over the
next several months, to get
where we need to be, just re-
member that it is those tour-
ist dollars that keep us in
business and those tourist
dollars that save us from hav-
ing to pay state sales tax.
You got to give a little, to
get a lot back!

"The Other Chekhov: An
Evening of Light Entertain-
mnent from an Otherwise
Gloomy Russian Genius"

The Seaside Repertory
Theatre's (SRT) second sum-
mer offering is a limited, one-
week run of comedic one-acts
by the legendary Russian
playwright Anton Chekhov.
"The Other Chekhov," di-
rected by Rep regular Bruce
Collier, runs Wednesday
through Saturday at 7:30
p.m. in the Meeting Hall
Theatre. All Tickets are $20,
but as always, Rep members
receive a 20'% discount. Fol-
lowing the Wednesday and
Thursday night shows at
10p.m., the Basic Character
Flaws will take the stage in
their regular late-night slots
performing improve comedy.
All tickets for the Flaws are
$10.

Anton Chekhov is chiefly
remembered for his full-
length dramatic works, such

as "Uncle Vanya,""Three Sis-
ters" and "The Cherry Or-
chard." Though Chekhov
himself called all his works
comedies, the tendency had
been to stage these as deeply
melancholy, "serious" the-
atre. "The Other Chekhov"
spotlights three one-acts, or
vaudevilles, all unmistak-
able comedies. The first,
"The Proposal," is a court-
ship between two neighbors,
who cannot stop bickering
about property lines, hunt-
ing dogs, and other problems
long enough to plan the nup-
tials. The second, "The Bear,"
pits an irritable creditor
against an eternally-mourn-
ing young widow, culminat-
ing in pistols and romance.
The final piece, "The Dan-
gers of Tobacco," starts as a
lecture on the perils of smok-
ing, then disintegrat,-s into
a bitter complaint by a hen-
pecked husband. Inter-
spersed between the one-
acts, in true vaudevillian
style, will be the circus

Seaside Rep regular Bruce
Collier directs local perform-
ers Alicia Leonard, Clint
Mahle, Tom Mosley, Bruce
Culpepper, Kim Cockcroft,
and Danny Thomas. This
show marks the first time the
Rep has showcased an en-
tirely local cast for a produc-
tion, and Rep Artistic Direc-
tor Craige Hoover is enthu-
siastic about the new ap-
proach, "The Rep's mission is
to produce high-quality pro-
fessional theatre, which cer-
tainly doesn't preclude us
from using local performers,
but the reality of our demo-
graphics makes it difficult to
cast most shows with the lo-
cal talent pool. I am thrilled
that Bruce came to me with
this idea, not only because
the show is hilarious, but also
because it affords us the op-
portunity to showcase some
truly talented local per-

Fire danger




still high for




Panhandle


By REID TUCKER
According to the Florida
Department of Agriculture
and Consumer Services
(FDACS), 2,473 fires have
burned 350,192 acres in
Florida since the beginning
of 2007.
While there have been
some areas that have re-
ceived some rainfall, by and
large there has been insuffi-
cient precipitation to allevi-
ate the drought conditions
existing in the state.
FDACS Commissioner
Charles Bronson urged citi-
zens to use caution when con-
ducting outdoor activities in
light of this development.
"Any little spark could be the
catalyst for the next big wild-
fire," Bronson said.
The Keetch-Byram
Drought Index (KBDI),
which quantifies, the extent
*of drought conditions, reads
over 600 in over: 38 Florida
counties. To understand the
significance of that number,
consider that '0' represents
flood conditions and'800' rep-
resents a desert. A rating of
600 suggests very dry condi-
tions for the state. In recent
weeks, the KBDI reading for
the Chipola River District
has risen to 590.
In reaction to these dis-
turbing findings, Bronson
has cautioned Florida resi-
dents against outdoor burn-
ing of any kind, and has cur-
rently prohibited the outdoor
burning of yard waste, in-
cluding leaves, grass, and
tree branches. "Many coun-
ties have also enacted burn
bans which may include ad-
ditional prohibitions,"
Bronson said.
Residents are advised to
check with their local Divi-
sion of Forestry or fire de-
partment to see what restric-
tions are in place for their
area. Additionally, a list of all
counties where an outdoor
burn ban is in place is cur-
rently available at the Divi-
sion of Forestry website,
www.fl-dof.com.
Walton County has just is-
sued its own emergency or-
dinance prohibiting outdoor
burning without a permit.
The ordinance, which went
into effect Wednesday, May
23, makes it unlawful to burn
anything in the open without
a permit from the DOF, but


does not include gas or char-
coal grills when used for
cooking.
The penalty for open burn-
ing anyway? Misdemeanor
charges, with each day the
violation exists counting as a
separate offense.
Fines of up to $500 are also
in place per violation of the
ordinance, and it's either that
or 60 days in jail, or both, de-
pending on the extenuating
circumstances. The ordi-
nance is currently scheduled
to be repealed 90 days from
the effective date.
The South Walton Fire
District (SWFD) announced
its own smoke alert, too. The
whole of the county has
breathed the stuff second-
hand, courtesy of the fires
still burning in Lake City,
some 250 miles east of Wal-
ton County.
The SWFD also issued a
ban on all outside burning,
.regardless of circumstances,
and advised area residents to
take necessary precautions
with underbrush and dry
grass around houses and out-
lying buildings.
Following Bronson's re-
port, the FDACS released a
short list of measures that, if
practiced, could reduce the
chances for continued fires.
The list includes a cautionary
notice on operation of lawn
mowers, tractors, chainsaws,
and ATVs. Obviously, resi-
dents should be mindful of
charcoal and gas used for
grilling. Less obviously,
FDACS advises residents to
avoid parking cars in tall
grass, as the heat from the
exhaust system could easily
ignite it, possibly resulting in
an explosion.
The main precaution
listed by FDACS is proper
handling of cigarettes. Im-
proper disposal of cigarettes
causes more fires than any
other single human factor.
Residents are strongly ad-
vised not to ever throw ciga-
rettes from a vehicle.

In closing, Bronson said,
"Our foresters and
firefighters have been work-
ing tirelessly to protect
people and property. They
have a good handle on ,the
fires, but it is critical that
everyone do their part in pre-
venting additional fires."
