DOWNTOWN DEFUNIAK SPRINGS remains similar to its original state, but before the
paved streets and sidewalks were installed, downtown DeFuniak was navigated on dirt
roads. The Big Store was on the corner of Baldwin and 8th Street, where its namesake
stands today.

Historic buildings:


Everything old




is new again.


By LAKEN DAVIS
DeFuniak Springs began
in the 1800s as a way station
for the L&N Railroad. Trains
brought thousands of visitors
to the annual winter
Chautauqua. Many of those
people decided to stay and
build homes and businesses.
Several of the buildings still
stand and are historic sites
with life-long stories. Over
time, businesses have come
and gone, but the buildings
have remained.
The Hotel DeFuniak The
original Hotel DeFuniak was
located on the corner of 11th
Street and Baldwin Avenue.
Now that site is just an
empty lot, but it was once a
thriving hotel. The building
that now houses Hotel DeFu-
niak, on 8th Street just west


of Triangle Chevrolet, was
constructed in 1920 as a Ma-
sonic lodge, said Craig
Robinson, a former co-owner
of the building. The Masons
held meetings upstairs and
rented the lower level out to
commercial businesses,
Robinson said. A local attor-
ney bought the 8th Street
building and divided the up-
per level into boarding rooms
and office space and turned
the lower level into a dining
room.
In later years, the build-
ing housed Lightfoot's Drug
Store, Danley's Furniture
Company and then Rick's
Cafe. Robinson remembers
going int6 the drug, store as
a child with his grandmother.
He said Marshall Lightfoot
had inventory everywhere.


In 1998, the building
changed owners and was
turned back into a hotel and
restaurant and has remained
so ever since. The original
Hotel DeFuniak and its mod-
ern-day counterpart are not
connected in any way except
for the fact of bearing the
same name.
Maxamillion Mortgage
and Park Avenue Real Estate
-The building that currently
houses Maxamillion Mort-
gage and Park
Avenue Real Estate was
constructed in 1899 at a cost
of $799, according to records
from Leroy Yount, a mort-
gage consultant with
Maxamillion.
It started out as home to

The Walton County Com-
mission approved the con-
tinuation of the local option
gas tax. Although the law al-
lows counties to charge up to
12 cents per gallon. Like
most other counties in
Florida, Walton County
places a seven-cent tax per
gallon sold in the county. At
the May 22 meeting, the com-
missioners renewed the as-
sessment. Though some resi-
dents thought it was a new
tax, in actuality, the gas tax
option has been around for
years.
Walton County first im-
posed a tax of five cents per
gallon in 1987, then in-
creased to six cents in 1998.
All but one of Florida's 67
counties charge this optional
tax. After the first five cents,
each penny tax addresses a
specific kind of expenditure.
That is, the money raised by
that penny tax is restricted
in how it can be levied and
for what it can be spent. The
ninth-cent tax-- out of a pos-
sible 12- deals with diesel
fuel. It was levied in 1998.
Added to the other six cents
of gas taxes, in Walton
County, it totals seven cents
per gallon. Thus, the May 22
action was not a new tax. It
was the continuation of taxes
levied eight years ago.
On the question of what
the county has done with the
money, Citizen Services Di-
rector Ken Little said, "The
local option fuel taxes are the
backbone of the county's road
paving program." To make
the money go further, he
said, in 2.003 ,the county
pledged the anticipated re-
ceipts of the local option fuel
taxes to apply for a 10-year,
$14 million loan. According
to commissioners, the
loan'sinterest rate ,was
cheaper than the inflation
rate. The ever-rising cost. of
materials, machinery and
manpower, especially since
the disastrous 2004-2005
hurricane season, has been
greater than the fixed inter-
est rate on the loan.
So far, more than two
dozen roads have been paved
all over Walton County. In
addition, more streets in at
least four separate subdivi-
sions have been paved.


"Without the loan backed
by the local option fuel taxes,
these roads would still likely
be dirt roads," said Little. He
said Walton County charges
the same rate as Escambia,
Okaloosa, Holmes, Washing-
ton, and Bay counties. Santa
Rosa County charged one
cent less, but collected nearly
$1.5 million more in revenue
than Walton County in 2006.
Forty-one counties in Florida
collected more money from
fuel taxes than Walton
County in 2006.
The local option gas tax
ordinance was passed 4-0.
Commissioner Kenneth
Pridgen was not present at
the meeting.
The commissioners also
declined another chance to
enact a new tax. Consultants
outlined a plan to assess a
tax on all new homes and
businesses. The Fire Rescue
Impact Fee, if passed, would
levy a tax of $269 per resi-
dential household and $2.16
per square foot of commercial
space. Residents and busi-
nesses within independent
fire districts (SWFD, Argyle
and Liberty) would be ex-
empt. Commissioner Jones
asked for more information
on the proposal before mak-
ing a decision and the issue
was tabled until the July 24
meeting.
County Public Works Di-
rector Allen Brown offered to
move forward with phase
one of a plan to help allevi-
ate the severe drainage prob-
lems that have been affect-
ing Driftwood Estates for
years. The price tag for phase
'one, which might help about
25 percent of the residents,
was estimated to be nearly
$1 million. Phase two would
account for the rest of the $3
million project. Despite lack
of proper drainage, develop-
ment continues within that
Sandestin subdivision
thanks to an agreement
signed in 2005 that elimi-
nated the responsibility of
developers to fix the problem
and guaranteed no mdrato-
rium on future development
within that community, in
exchange for less than
$140,000.

City begins new plans for the future


By LEIGH STRICKLAND
Planning for future
growth in DeFuniak Springs
has never been more vital
than it is today. With new
commercial businesses and
residential communities on
the way, a new blueprint for
development here is an im-
perative. To discuss and re-
view various planning pro-
cesses for the city, the DeFu-
niak Springs City Council
met in workshop session on
Monday, June 4. Because city
staff has had little experience
with major developments,
members of the DeFuniak
Springs Planning Board and
representatives from both
the Florida Department of
Transportation and the
Florida Department of Com-
munity Affairs, also attend-
ing the meeting.


The meeting was opened
by City Planner Greg
Scoville, who outlined the
processes involved in land
use changes and discussed
current projects in the plan-
ning department. According
to Scoville, the city's compre-
hensive plan is a policy on
what the city will do in the
future regarding such things
as residential uses, housing,
traffic, and infrastructure. It
sets out objectives and goals
that are measurable and
looks at trends in. population,
age groups, and race.
The city s current plan
was adopted in 2000. City
staff is currently rewriting
the document to update and
complete it. Scoville also said
the city is about a month be-
hind schedule in preparing a
new Evaluation and Ap-


praisal Report, he expects to
present a draft to the City
Council this month. The
document is due to be com-
pleted in August. The entire
process, including any
amendments to the docu-
ment, is to be completed by
December 2009.
Scoville also discussed
Proportionate Fair Share for
Transportation, an ongoing
issue with prospective devel-
opers. The ordinance,
adopted in February, was in-
tended to allow developers to
"pay and go" in the develop-
ment process.
There have been problems
with this ordinance, Scoville
said, because developers
aren't paying. As a result,
there may be a slow down in
development due to a back-
log created by developers not


having sufficient funds.
Additionally, Scoville
mentioned the need for the
city to create a transporta-
tion master plan outlining
such things as future traffic
corridors and bike paths.
DOT representative Kelly
Parker recommended model-
ing this plan on the plan cre-
ated by Walton County,
which is currently awaiting
adoption.
"I thought it was a good
run down and interaction be-
tween the planning board
and staff," said Councilman
Don Harrison. "It was also
important to have DCA and
DOT in attendance."
In other City Council
news, the council unani-
mously adopted anamend-
ment to Ordinance No. 671,
in a Tuesday, May 29, special


meeting. The amendment in-
creased the property tax
homestead exemption from
$50,000 to $75,000 for se-
niors age 65 and older and
who meet income require-
ments set by the state Legis-
lature. According to a memo
sent by the state to the mu-
nicipalities, the current in-
come cap is at $20,000 per
year. The special meeting
was necessary to inform the
county property appraiser's
office of the additional
$25,000 by the June 1 dead-
line. The exemption would
cost the city an approxi-
mately $1,125- this year and
would affect "possibly 10
households," according to
city records.
Herald-Breeze staff re-
porter Joshua Smith also

Macon pre-qualifies for


Walton County sheriff


The Walton County Chamber of Commerce, Ambassadors, and staff of La Casita Mexican
Food celebrated their grand opening at 12555 US Hwy 90 W in DeFuniak Springs with a
ribbon cutting recently. Manager, Deena Bryant and her staff offer authentic homemade
Mexican food specializing in mole poblano, chiles rellenos, chilaquiles, and tacos machaca.
Hours of operation are 7am to 3pm. For more information or a complete menu stop by or
call 850-951-0049.


Jimmy Macon, Walton
County School District At-
tendance Officer/At-Risk Fa-
cilitator and Safety Officer,
has pre-qualified with the
Supervisor of Elections to
run for Sheriff of Walton
County. Macon, a Walton
County Deputy, also served
as school resource officer
(SRO) for nine years, and
spent 20 years in the United
States Army. He wants to be
a sheriff who is community
minded and in contact with
citizens daily, responding to
their concerns in a timely
manner. Other areas of inter-
est are working with the
community, school district
and county commissioners to
improve and increase school
security, and putting SROs in
every school, including el-
ementary.


Working with schools to
enforce attendance and pre-
vent truancy, and keeping
kids in school to complete
their education are Macon's
priorities. Working closely
with law enforcement agen-
cies and firefighters and
helping create an outstand-
ing work environment with
better promotion opportuni-
ties is needed as well. Macon
would like to start a police
athletic program to help keep
or kids off the streets and
away from alcohol and drugs.
He wants to reinstate the
junior deputy program and
increase part-time officer in-
volvement. Also, he intends
to donate part of his salary,
if elected, to the Take Stock
In Children Scholarship Pro-
gram as well as the cadet pro-
gram. He is currently in-


volved with these programs
and looks forward to being
more involved in making de-
cisions that will benefit the
people of Walton County.

FROM FRONT

Osborn asked the commis-
sioners to come to the aid of
the beleaguered community.
The commissioners agreed to
come up with a new plan and
did not direct Brown to ini-
tiate the phase one plan.
The commission did vote
to spend $396,000 to build a
101-space parking lot be-
tween Seaside and
WaterColor. The public park-
ing lot would also feature
bathrooms.
Regarding public dune
walkovers destroyed by Hur-
ricane Dennis, Sonny Mares
of the South Walton Tourist
Development Council said
the removable, aluminum
walkovers they had planned
to used were disallowed by
the state. In order to build
wooden walkovers, a $71,000
change order would be
needed which was approved
unanimously.
The commissioners voted
unanimously on every issue
but two, and in both cases
Commissioner Sara
Commander cast the dissent-
ing vote. The commission
voted 3-1 to pay lobbying
firm Marlowe & Co. $54,000
to lobby the Florida Legisla-
ture on its behalf. Comander
questioned Mares' statement
that Marlowe & Co. are the
only lobbyists in the state
specializing in coastal issues.
The commissioners also
approved the signing of a
$600,000 inter-local agree-
ment with the city of DeFu-
niak Springs regarding wa-
ter and sewer service to the
new jail on Hwy: 83N. That
passed 3-1, with Commis-
sioner Comander dissenting
because "it wasn't handled
properly by the city."
The commission voted
unanimously to approve a
25-year lease with the Wal-
ton County 4-H Club Foun-
dation to locate its headquar-
ters on a piece of county-
owned property.
Science student A.J.
Fulcher gave the commis-
sioners an update on his re-
cent trip to Washington,
D.C., a trip that was largely
funded by the commission in
response to an earlier re-
quest.

County Construction
Manager Rick Millard
brought the meeting to a
positive close by presenting
two items to the commission-

county without any cost.
Fencing around the old jail
site was removed by inmate
labor and relocated to the
new jail site where it is
needed again.
Also, Millard said they


had made a deal regarding
the tents that had been used
to house the overflowing jail
population. The tents, which,
could not be used for any-
thing else by the county, had
been traded to a private com-
pany in exchange for large
air-conditioning units that

By 10 p.m., nearly 200 ve-
hicles had gone through the
checkpoint. It had only been
open an hour.
A sobriety and safety
check point was conducted
May 25 from 9 p.m. until 1
a.m. West-bound traffic was
routed off of U.S. 90 into the
front drive of the Okaloosa-
Walton College DeFuniak
campus. More than 450 ve-
hicles were recorded.
The checkpoint was a joint
effort of the Defuniak
Springs Police Department
(DFSPD), the Walton County
Sheriffs Office (WCSO) and
the state Alcohol, Beverage
and Tobacco bureau. Around
35 officers participated.
Members of Mothers Against
Drunk Driving were also
present. These checkpoints
are usually held once a year.
"The purpose of this is to
save people's lives," said
DFSPD Chief Michael
Adkinson. In a briefing be-
fore it began, DFSPD Lt.
Greg Gandy also said the
goal is to make the roads
safer.
Drivers were checked for
valid driver's Jicenses and
seat belts, and vehicles were
checked for violations such
as blown taillights and bald
tires.

Bill Chapman said, "It's an

Any drivers in violation of
traffic laws were asked to
pull aside, where proper
measures could be taken. If
the odor of alcohol was
present, drivers were asked
to step out of the vehicle
while officers pulled it out of
the line.
Local tow trucks were
called.in to remove vehicles
that had no legal driver.
Two officers kept records
of arrests made, tickets is-
sued and the average stop
time of vehicles. Most driv-


ers were in and out within
one minute.
A total of 27 tickets were
issued and 14 arrests were
made, one for D.U.I. One
count of drug possession was
also recorded.
Janice and Peter
Wolniewicz, with MADD, try
to come to as many of these
checkpoints as possible.
Their 22-year-old daughter
was killed by a drunk driver.
Mrs. Wolniewicz said the
stops make drivers more
aware of road safety. She
urged everyone to drive
safely and have a designated
driver if they are going to
drink alcohol.

* PERSONAL COMMENTS

* LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


Editor:
It is that time of the year when the 'best' of the Little
League teams are formed into one team. The process by which
this special team is put together became painfully clear to
me this year.
The look in my son's eyes, when he found out he did not
make the team his final year, was all I needed to realize the
unjust treatment these young children feel after working so
hard all season. His batting average and defensive skills were
as good or better than most of the selected players. But it
reaill\ came as no major shock to me since it seems the All-
Starts were already picked early in the season.
I have been involved with DeFuniak Springs Little League
for the past seven years as a parent and a coach and have
noticed that it is not really the baseball skills, the heart of
athletic ability of each child that is taken into consideration.
It seems if you coach or are a member of the 'board,' your
child is all but guaranteed a spot on All-Stars.
My son is smart enough to understand and strong enough
to accept the choices that were made. He'll be fine. He does
not need a fake sense of self-worth.
Why can't the All-Stars be selected by a blind drawing of
all the players' statistics and not by who coaches, sponsors a
team or cuts the grass?

Editor:
As one who has volunteered as a helper at Chautauqua
Assembly for the past several years, along with most of
DeFuniak, I was upset by the news of two separate assem-
blies.
I've since done a complete about-face with two extremely,
capable women, Anna and Diane, diligently working sepa-
rately this should easily be the most successful Chautauqua
experience we've had yet.
We've had two successive weekends before. I'm sure that
with only one person finding speakers and other entertain-
ers to fill all the spots necessary to keep the events running
smoothly it could not have been easy. With two people who
either know or know where to find so many interesting indi-
viduals and groups, these two weekends should be filled to
utmost capacity. That. ought to put us on the Chautauqua
circuit and establish us as it's winter home as never before.
I plan to volunteer each weekend. I will work as hard as I
can to make each as successful as can possibly be. I'm sure
most of the volunteers will feel as I do. It's all of DeFuniak's
Chautauqua and, as a native of DeFuniak, I want to con-
tinue having the pride of our togetherness.
Long live DeFuniak and long live Chautauqua. I love them
both dearly.
Sincerely,
Mary Lind Devlin

EDITOR'S COMMENT



Congratulations and lamentations


By RON KELLEY

Every now and then I have the pleasure of giving credit
where credit is due. In this case, it involves three local offi-
cials, two of them hold elected posts.
First, DeFuniak Springs City Marshall Michael Adkinson
deserves a big round of applause. His stance on jailing ille-
gal aliens is not only correct, it is commendable. At a time
when most elected representatives, from the White House
down, are looking for a way to look the other way, Adkinson's
fearless attitude deserves our gratitude and respect.
Second, Walton County Jail Administrator Danny
Glidewell should be commended for his willingness to house
these illegal intruders in jail where they belong. If federal
immigration officials followed the law and did their job half
as well as these two men, we would not be faced with the
burden of this invasion by foreign nationals.
Third, although the final set of policies have not been com-
pleted, County Commissioner Sara Comander should be com-
mended for asking that policies to prevent Walton County
from hiring construction companies that hire illegal aliens
be adopted. If they can't find work, they won't stay here.
These three, and others like them in Florida and across
the nation, had the courage to stand up publicly and de-
nounce The Big Lie which is that we need the illegals "to do
the jobs that Americans won't do." Americans did all these
jobs before our nation was overrun by millions of
invaders. There is no job that Americans won't do. They just
won't do it for $3 an hour, which means that these employ-
ers and corporations might have to settle for making a sim-
ply "reasonable" profit. Instead, they exploit and victimize
the illegals because they know they can with impunity -
and get away with larger profits. The illegals, who were
making half as much before, are now making more money,
so they are better off, too.
Who gets hurt? The working professionals, Middle America
- the same people who pay all of the bills and take all of the
hits Middle America, the same people who lost their jobs
when their own government created NAFTA, which did noth-
ing but encourage companies to fire American workers and
relocate to some Third World country where they could vic-
timize the locals and put them to work in sweat-shops (be-
cause they knew they could with impunity) and make double
or triple the profits. If thousands of Americans lost their jobs,
so what?
The latest in a long list of phony "reforms" comes from


Sen. Ted Kennedy and Sen. Mel Martinez, two brothers-in-
arms. They are busy trying to craft the worst piece of immi-
gration claptrap imaginable and I can imagine quite a lot.
The opening portions of Senate bill 1348 use all the right
buzz-words. Even the title sounds good The Secure Bor-
ders, Economic Opportunity and Immigration Reform Act
of 2007. Doesn't that sound good?
Well, Faithful Reader, hidden deep inside this glorious
document are elements that will cost Middle Americans $500
BILLION in additional, welfare payments over the next 10 -
15 years. It would give complete amnesty for all the corpo-
rations and businesses that hire the illegals and would sim-
ply take the illegal alien's word for it that they have been in
the country long enough to qualify for permanent amnesty.
We've been told that the illegals will be fined. True, but
only $2,000 and they have eight years to pay it. Background
checks on millions of illegals must all be done within 90
days. Impossible? Here's what you won't believe. If a fed-
eral agent investigates an amnesty application and finds it
to be fraudulent for law enforcement purposes, the agent
can be fined $10,000.
It gets worse.
In title four of the bill, in language only a lawyer could
love, "temporary guest workers" would be automatically be
converted into legal permanent residents and granted a
green card. Further, unlike Americans, a blue card holder
can only be fired for "just cause" even if they change to some
other kind ofjob. Unlike Americans, if they feel they've been
fired unjustly, their case automatically goes to arbitration.
And who pays the fee and expenses of the arbitrator? And
who pays for the. free legal counsel that alien gets to help
prepare for the arbitration or to file for amnesty?
. Take a guess.
Illegals only have to repay back taxes for three of the five
years they were here illegally and they get to pick which
three!
Have Americans everrr been offered that deal?
I could go on, but now you understand. To find out more,
contact Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Alabama), Rep. Brian Billbray
(R-California) or even North Dakota Democrat Sen. Bryan
Dorgan. They are fighting for the rights of true Americans
and they know that a vote for illegal aliens is a vote against
Americans.
So now you know. Now you've been warned. What mes-
sage do you plan to send to Mr. Kennedy and Mr. Martinez?
What do you have to say now,'Americans?

Editor,
On Saturday, May 26 I held my first fundraiser as Miss
DeFuniak Springs. It was a great success, thanks to some
very special people. Joyce Zaidi and Stephen Matthews at
Realty West, and Land Mark Title are the best supportive
friends a gal can have. I want to thank Miss Walton County
Sassy Bogart, her mother, Teresa, her sisters, Devero and
Ki-Ki, for all their hard work. Teen Miss Walton County Mary
Beth Bishop and Junior Miss DeFuniak Springs Teia Fields
waved in customers and sponged off cars and trucks with
energy and great big smiles, making the day fun and wet.
A special thanks to Jason Whitton, my friend for life and
fellow graduate, for the hard work, and the dedicated friend-
ship you've shown me throughout this year.
Love to you all,
Miss DeFuniak Springs 2007

The 1-6 Cents Local Option
Fuel Tax is a tax of one to six
cents on every gallon of fuel
sold within a county. Like
the ninth cent tax, this tax
has been imposed on diesel
fuel by the state at the maxi-
mum rate of six cents in ev-
ery county since January 1,
1993. Counties may tax
gasoline by an ordinance
adopted by the County Com-
mission or voter approval in
a countywide referendum.
Proceeds from this tax must
be shared with the munici-
palities within the county.
The monies can only be
used for transportation ex-
penditures as defined in Sec-

Statutes: public transporta-

the rate of five cents, and
then increased to the sixth
cent authorized by law in
1998. All 67 counties in
Florida charge this optional
tax, with all but one county
at the full rate of six cents.
1-5 Cents Local Option
Fuel Tax
The 1-5 Cents Local Option
Fuel Tax is a tax of 1 to 5
cents on every gallon of mo-
tor fuel sold within a county.
Diesel fuel is not subject to
this tax. Counties may levy
this tax by an ordinance
adopted by a majority plus
one vote of the county com-
mission or voter approval in
a countywide referendum.
Nineteen Walton counties
in Florida collect from two
cents to all five cents of this
optional tax, but Walton
County does not.
To put our local fuel taxes
in perspective with other
counties in the state, con-
sider the following facts:
Walton County collected
about $3,232,780 in 2006 at


7 cents on every gallon of fuel
'sold.
Walton County's collection
of $3,232,780 was a little
more than one third of one
percent of the total revenue
of about $844,951,535 col-
lected in Florida in 2006 from
local option gas taxes.
Forty-one counties in
Florida collected more money
from fuel taxes than Walton
County in 2006. Twenty-five
collected less.
Twenty counties charge a
lesser rate than Walton
County. Nineteen of those
counties charge one cent less.
One county charges two
cents less. Eight of those
counties actually collected
more money despite a lower
rate of tax due to a larger
population.
Nineteen counties charge a
higher rate than Walton
County, with allbut three of
those collecting more money
as well.
Of the 28 counties charg-
ing the same seven' total

cents as Walton County, 17
counties collected more
money. Ten counties col-
lected less money.
Walton County charges the
same rate as Escambia,
Okaloosa, Holmes, Washing-
ton, and Bay counties in
Northwest Florida. Santa
Rosa County charged one
cent less, but collected nearly
$1.5 million more in revenue
than Walton County in 2006.
From this data, Walton
County ranks roughly3rbelow
the middle of all other coun-
ties in Florida in terms of the
tax rate, and the amount of
revenue collected from those
taxes. The commonly heard
assertion that Walton resi-
dents are paying higher gas
prices than surrounding
counties because of local op-
tion gas taxes is not correct.
Another important consid-
eration is the $14 million
loan made in 2003. The

Local officials getting tough on illegal alien population


By LAKEN DAVIS

United States government
officials are currently in de-
bate over how to address the
issue of illegal aliens living
within U.S. borders. DeFu-
niak Springs and Walton
County officials face the
same situation.
DeFuniak Springs City
Marshal Michael Adkinson
said there are around 1,000
people living in DeFuniak
Springs who are in the coun-
try illegally. The majority of
these people are Hispanic, he
said. It is illegal to enter the
U.S. without proper docu-
mentation, but because the
borders are so porous, people
manage to cross.
Adkinson said the prob-
lem is too multi-faceted to
generalize, but includes
aliens using false documents
such as fake or stolen Social
Security cards, which can
lead to identity theft, and
aliens having no documents
at all, such as driver's li-
censes. Without proper iden-


tification, there is no way to
find a person's real identity.
When an alien is arrested
and booked, he or she is later
bonded out like any other
person, Adkinson said. How-
ever, in many instances, the
person does not return for
court.
A lot of hidden costs exist
as well, Adkinson said.
Aliens do not have driver's
licenses or car insurance, so
when they get into a wreck,
the legal citizen is forced to
pay the bill. Social services
like police department calls
and fire department calls to
homes of illegal residents
also cost money.
Adkinson also said there
are no Spanish-speaking of-
ficers at the police depart-
ment to help with Hispanic
people's needs.
"They are also subject to
being victims," Adkinson
said. In many instances,
they have sub-standard liv-
ing conditions, he said. He
added that the department
might propose ordinances to


help improve these condi-
tions. One he had in mind is
a rooming-house ordinance
that would allow for no more
than four unrelated people to
live in one home without a
permit.
During the last month,
Adkinson has talked with
Immigration and Customs
Enforcement (ICE) about re-
moving detained aliens from
the Walton County Jail.
However, he said, they would
not follow through with their
obligations. He's doing his job
and wants the organization
to do its, he said.
Adkinson said he plans to
detain all aliens who are
booked. "It's the law of the
land," he said. "I'm not going
away."
Department of Correc-
tions Director Danny
Glidewell has seen a notice-
able increase in the number
of illegal aliens in Walton
County in the past three or
four years.
"The biggest issue is the
language barrier," he said. It


is a problem with booking,
housing, and bonding every
process. The staff is encour-
aged to learn Spanish. Ap-
proximately 10 percent of the
jail's population are illegal
aliens. Glidewell said aliens
have no valid driver's license
and are generally issued mis-
demeanor charges. However,
with forged identification
documents, it is hard to get
a handle on their true iden-
tity.
"Thanks to the County
Commission and their fore-
sight, we have space," he
said, referring to the new jail
expansion. However, he said,
the aliens are generally not
in jail for long before they are
bonded out.
In April 2007, the jail was


relocated from behind the
courthouse to a location
north of the city. It has ex-
panded from housing 101 in-
mates at the previous loca-
tion to 328 in phase one of the
new location, located near
the Walton Correctional In-
stitution. The jail will hold
584 inmates when phase two
is complete.
In the last three months,
a local volunteer has put a
Hispanic church service to-
gether at the jail, Glidewell
said. The county has talked
of planning something with
Okaloosa Walton College to
provide English-as-a-second-
language classes to inmates.
However, grant money would
have to be located before fur-
ther steps could be taken.


Glidewell has thought of
sending an officer to training
school to have an in-house
immigration official, he said.
"That'll help us speed up the
process."
He has also thought about
getting a possible contract
with ICE to house inmates
for a fee, which would bring
money into the county.
Wakulla County does it cur-
rently, he said.
Housing illegal aliens is a
drain on everyone's re-
sources, Glidewell said, add-
ing, "It's a problem that I
don't think is going to go
away anytime soon.
"We're glad to work with
other agencies in the county
to control the problem,"
Glidewell said.

disposal.




Community clean-up days


continue in Walton County


Choctaw Beach commu-
nity along SR-20 was the site
of the last Community Clean-
up Day. District 4 Commis-
sioner Sara Comander and
workers from the District 4
Road Crew and the Walton
County Landfill were out on
Saturday, May 12, at
Choctaw Park to collect de-
bris, white goods, and other
difficult to dispose items for
the residents of the commu-


nity.
According to Landfill
Manager Rusty Floyd, two
30-yard dumpsters of metal
scrap, five dumpsters of
trash and debris, and one
dumpster full of tires were
carried to the landfill from
this clean-up day. The clean-
up days provide a convenient
way for residents to dispose
of large items without hav-
ing to travel to the landfill
north of DeFuniak Springs.


The next clean-up day is
Saturday, June 9, in the
Point Washington commu-
nity. Dumpsters and the
work crew will be located on
Bay Drive, north of'U.S, 98.
A clean-up day on Saturday,
July 14, will follow in Santa
Rosa Beach, with a tentative
location at Nellie Drive and
Chat Holley Road. Other
clean-ups are planned
around the county on the sec-
ond Saturday of each month.

BUILDINGS
FROM FRONT
King and Co. General Mer-
chandise, an all-purpose
country store, said Charles
King Jr. "It evolved over time
to be a hardware store," King
said. King's Hardware, once
Walton County's oldest con-
tinuing business, closed in
1998 and for years the build-
ing stood vacant. Then in
2006, the mortgage and real
estate companies moved into
the building. Yount said he
remembers shopping in the
hardware store years ago.
"They had everything," he
said. He never imagined he
would later work in the same
building for a different com-
pany. Much of the old wood
has been re-purposed into
desks and tables, and the
brick walls are exposed to
highlight the building's his-
tory.
Doctors Medical Center -
The building that is now Doc-
tors Medical Center was pre-
viously Comander Funeral
Home, but before that, it was
a hospital and then was
turned into apartments, ac-
cording to Comander family
records.
Mercer and Ada
Comander bought the build-
ing around 1941 and moved
in. All of the rooms were con-
nected to a big hall, where
the only bathroom was lo-
cated. The Crescent Street
side of the building was torn
down and rebuilt as a home.
The section of building that
was left was used as Ada's
beauty shop. Some years
later, the other section of the
house was torn down and a
more modern beauty shop
was built.
The pair opened a funeral
home in part of the house in
1952 or 1953. Barbra Sue
Comander remembers hav-
ing to go through the funeral
home chapel, previously the
living and dining room, to get
to the kitchen. It was about
1956 when. a separate, pri-
vate living space was built,
using the kitchen from the
original building, with a hall
linking it to the funeral
home, which operated for
many years. At one point, the
city contracted with
Comander and their hearse
did double-duty as the town's
only ambulance.
In 1975, after the senior
Comanders retired, son Rob-
ert and wife, Sara, bought
the business operated it for
the next two decades until it
was bought by a corporation
that specialized in operating
funeral homes. It stayed
open for a time, but later
closed.
After the funeral home
closed, the building was pur-
chased by Dr. James Howell
and remodeled as doctors' of-
fices, and re-opened in 2003
as Doctors Medical Center.
Heavenly Designs Heav-
enly Designs, a floral shop
that opened in 2004, is lo-
cated inside of a building
now called The Big Store.
The original building, also
called The Big Store, was re-
constructed in 1903 after a
fire destroyed most of the
downtown block, said Dennis
Ray, present owner of the
building.
Like Hotel DeFuniak, the
current business bears no re-
semblance to the original
store except for its name. In
the early days of DeFuniak
Springs, The Big Store was
originally a general store.
Much later, Cristo's, a five-
and-ten-cent store, moved in.
After Cristo's, the building
housed a Top Dollar store.
Ray bought the building
while Top Dollar was leasing
space. Once the dollar-store
closed, Ray turned the build-
ing into Big Store Antiques
and leased space to Designs
by Nell. The antique store
currently remains, while


Heavenly Designs has taken
the place of the previous flo-
rist.
Gov. Catts House The
building located on the cor-
ner of Live Oak Avenue and
U.S. 331 was built in the
1880s and is currently
known as Sunbright Manor.
It was the home of Florida
Governor Sidney Catts, who
was elected for a single term
in 1917. Later, the building
was purchased and turned
into Sunbright Manor Inn, a
bed and breakfast. Later it
was sold and is now the pri-
vate home of the Russ

Orlosky family.
Southeby's Antiques The
building that houses
Southeby's Antiques was
built between 1910 and 1920.
One of the first businesses in
the building was a Pontiac
car agency, said Cecil J.
Floyd, a 79-year-old DeFu-
niak Springs resident and a
former owner of the building.
Around 1945, the building
became a hosiery mill, he
said. Later, the building was
Ideal Baking Company,
where Floyd worked during


the summer while he was in
high school. He said the com-
pany made breads, cakes,
pies and doughnuts. After
school dances, Floyd and his
friends would stop in and get
a late-night snack of dough-
nuts.
After the bakery closed,
the building housed a dry-
cleaning business. Later,
Prescott Plumbing opened in
the building. In 1967, Floyd
purchased the building and

Walton County HUD housing "'ove in, move up, move out"


By JOSHUA SMITH.
While affordable housing
continues to be a problem in
Walton County, there is one
governmental agency that is
helping with a solution.
The Walton County Hous-
ing Agency distributes ap-
proximately $1.5 million an-
nually to for rental assis-
tance to qualifying low-in-
come residents. "This pro-
gram is a blessing," said Tho-
mas Baker, executive direc-
tor of the agency.
The housing agency is a
federally-funded program
that falls under the Depart-
ment of Housing and Urban
Development's Section Eight
program.
Currently, there are 340
homes in the county that are
associated with the program,
with funds currently avail-
able for an additional 24.
However, some 50 families
are currently waiting for ad-
ditional housing to open up.
The program is open to all
citizens who have a head of
household that is of legal age.
Part of the problem in
finding homes is HUD's re-
quirements of certain hous-
ing standards to be met,
which requires property in-
spections.
Unlike traditional public
assistance programs, the
rental assistance dollars do
not go to the families within
the program, but to the own-
ers of the properties. If there
is a difference between what
funds a family qualifies for
and the rental amount, the
family pays that difference.
Currently, families are eli-
gible for up to $781 per
month based on numerous
factors such as the size of the
home, the income of the fam-
ily, conditions of disability,
and the number of depen-
dents within the household.
Approximately, 37 percent of
households in the program
pay between $100 and $200
per month in rent. This num-


ber is set by HUD, who es-
tablish a "fair market rent"
in each market.
Baker believes the current
rate is too low. "We're trying
to get HUD to raise the rate,"
he said.
Since taking over the
agency a year ago, Baker has
begun to have more one-on-
one interaction with the
members of the program. "I
want to sit down and see
what I can do the help you,"
said Baker. Part of that, he
said, is helping young people,
"see where they can go (in
life)." Baker said the empha-
sis on young people is impor-
tant to the program, consid-
ering that 53 percent of resi-
dents in the program are un-
der the age of 18.
"Some people feel the
weight of the world is on
them, and no one is in their
best interest," he said. "I
want to show them that I do
care."
And in that, Baker has
geared his focus towards
family self-sufficency.


I want to help all that
need it and help them as
quickly as possible," he said.
"At the same time, I want
each individual that is able
to help themselves to do so. I
have always found that
people that work hard for
what they have, respect the
outcome more and live a bet-
ter quality of life."
About 2-3 years ago, the
agency ran a federal grant
program that allowed funds
to be distributed to low-in-
come families to assist them
in making a down-payment
on a house of their own, in-
stead of having to rent.
Baker said he is currently
working with the Walton
County Chamber of Com-
merce to bring this program
back.
Baker also works closely
with Jobs Plus in DeFuniak
Springs to assist program
participants with low in-
comes to establish employ-
ment if possible.
"We never tell people they
have to work," said Baker. He

said this is due to the fact
that neither he or the pro-
gram can fully understand
the situation facing a family,
and.doesn't assume to know
their situation.
Baker said he would really
like to have case workers to
assist every family within
the program with their needs
in order to, "Move in, move
up, and move out."
A source of pride to
Baker is the ability find
housing for young women,
particularly single mothers.
"We are concerned about fe-
male housing rights without
retaliation," he said. "We've
developed a program to go
over Fair Housing Act rights
for everyone when they move
in. There's also a 1-800 num-
ber for people to call if they're
feeling threatened."
Prior to a 2005 law,
if a domestic violence inci-
dent transpired on publicly-
assisted housing, the resi-
dent was forced to move.

shootout with Bay County deputy


By BRUCE COLLIER

A Louisiana man was shot
and killed in an exchange of
fire with a Bay County
Sheriff's deputy on June 2.
The man, identified as
Christopher Michael
Simpson, was sought by Wal-
ton County Sheriff's deputies
in connection with charges of
grand theft auto and other
alleged offenses in Walton
County.
A report from the Bay
County Sheriff's Office
(BCSO) said that Simpson
had fled Walton County in a
stolen vehicle. With him in
the vehicle was Patrina Ann
Theriot, 28, also of Louisi-
ana. Simpson was reported
to be armed with a .38 cali-
ber handgun.

Walton County Sheriff's
Office (WCSO) deputies pur-
sued the vehicle, which en-
tered Bay County, traveled
through Phillips Inlet, then
north onto Hwy. 79 and onto
Steelfield Road, where the
driver wrecked the vehicle in
the woods.
Simpson is reported to
have fled into the woods on
foot, while Theriot remained
in the vehicle. WCSO and
BCSO deputies began a


search, in conjunction with
air and K-9 units.
At around 4 p.m., a Bay
County deputy encountered
Simpson on a dirt road.
Simpson reportedly said to
the deputy, "Do not make me
shoot you."'He then fired one
shot, and the deputy re-
turned fire, hitting Simpson.
Simpson fired once again,


then went down.
Simpson was transported
to Bay Medical Center, where
he died.
Theriot was taken into
custody and transported to
Bay County Jail. WCSO
placed a hold on her on pend-
ing charges of three counts of
grand theft auto, resisting a
law enforcement officer


without violence, and fleeing
and eluding.
Bay County Sheriff Frank
McKeithen has turned the
investigation over to the
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement. The deputy in-
volved in the shooting will be
placed on administrative
leave pending the investiga-
tion.


DFS Police, CourtTV host


"Caring for Kids Day"


The DeFuniak Springs Po-
lice Department (DFSPD)
and CourtTV are joining to
host "Caring for Kids Day,"
on June 15. Brighthouse Net-

is co-sponsoring.
The event will take place
at Wee Care County Park on
Walton Road, from 11 a.m. -


BUILDING
opened Floyd Mechanical. In
the early 1990s, the building
was purchased by John and
Dee South and turned into
an antique store called
Southeby's.
CSR-CPA The CSR-CPA
building that sits across from
the Hotel DeFuniak was
built in 1900 by the Indepen-
dent Order of Oddfellows, ac-
cording to records from Craig
Robinson, the building's cur-
rent owner. The second floor
was used as a meeting hall
for the Oddfellows. The first
floor was originally leased
out to Prescott Bros. Cash
Grocery. Later, it was sepa-
rated in half to hold a dress
shop and a barbershop.
Robinson purchased the
building in 2002. He re-

trance to its original state
and recreated a 1920s-style
decor. Currently, Robinson
and his wife reside in the
upper level and Robinson
operates his accounting busi-
ness downstairs.
For each of the buildings
mentioned, there are a dozen
others that have histories
and stories of their own.
Nearly all of the buildings on
Baldwin Avenue and in the
historic district of DeFuniak
Springs were constructed to
house something other than
the businesses they currently
hold. Even the DeFuniak
Herald, now Walton County's
oldest continually-operated
business, is in a different lo-
cation than where it began.
Everything old is new
again.


Event organizers say
there will be "plenty of fun,
food and freebies for the
kids."

tension 229, or Trixie Suttles

Eucheeanna Community Park project near completion


The recent park improve-
ments project at the Euch-
eeanna Community Park is
drawing to completion. Dis-
trict One Commissioner
Scott Brannon began the


project several months ago.
Brannon conducted a com-
munity meeting in Euch-
eeanna to gain citizens input.
From that point, Brad Alford
and his staff, at the Park and


Recreation Departnment
pulled it all together.
"By allowing the local citi-
zens to drive ideas for the
park, we ensure that we
meet the community's


needs," Brannon explains.
The improvement to the
Euch-eeanna Community
Park include new basketball
court and goals, children's
play area, picnic tables, out-


door lighting, a reading gar-
den, and fencing.
"The Board of County Com-
missioners has made a
strong commitment to im-
prove and expand our parks
county wide, because that's
what we are hearing from


our citizens."
The District One recre-
ational plat fee fund paid the
approximate cost of $18,788
for the park improvements at
Eucheeanna. The county's
paving crew did the paving
involved with the project.


Brannon Addresses Kiwanis


On May 29, Walton County
Commissioner Scott
Brannon spoke to the DeFu-
niak Springs Kiwanis Club
at McLean's restaurant.
Brannon updated the group
on current state ad valorem
tax reform proposals to be
discussed in an upcoming
special legislative session,
starting June 12. Brannon
explained the significant im-
pact this could have on Wal-
ton County. Current propos-
als affect Walton County
from $7 to $17 million. "We
are very concerned, the
Board of County Commis-
sioners has asked all county
departments and constitu-
tional offices to keep budget
requests to under a 7-percent
increase in preparation of the
outcome of the state's special
session."

Administrative

complaint
dismissed

against
Grantham
By BRUCE COLLIER
An administrative com-
plaint filed by the Florida
Department of Law Enforce-
ment (FDLE)'s Criminal Jus-
tice Standards and Training
Commission (CJSTC)
against Deputy Johnny
Grantham has been volun-
tarily dismissed, but the case
is not yet over.
The case was set for an
administrative hearing on
June 6. That hearing was
canceled.
The complaint arose out of
a 2005 traffic stop involving
Grantham then a DeFuniak
Springs Police (DFSPD) in-
vestigator- and DFSPD Lt.
Greg Gandy.
In January of 2006,
Grantham resigned from
DFSPD. That same month,
he filed a sworn complaint
and voluntary statement
with the Florida Ethics Com-
mission alleging that Gandy
had acted improperly in the
course of the stop. An inter-
nal DFSPD investigation of
Gandy found no misconduct.
The basis of the adminis-
trative complaint against
Grantham was an allegation
that Grantham had know-
ingly falsified two official
documents, the ethics com-
plaint and voluntary state-
ment against Gandy.
Grantham requested an ad-
ministrative hearing on the
matter, which was scheduled
for June 6.
Both CJSTC and
Grantham engaged in dis-
covery, including interrogato-
ries and witness and evi-
dence lists. Grantham filed a
motion for summary judg-
ment and/or dismissal on
May 31. The CJSTC filed a
notice of voluntary dismissal
of the complaint on June 1.
The same day, the admin-
istrative judge in the case or-
dered the file closed, return-
ing the case to the referring
agency for disposition.
Grantham was repre-
sented by Crestview attor-
ney James R. Murray.
Murray said that the FDLE
lawyers told him there was
not sufficient evidence to pro-
ceed. Murray added that the
case will be on the agenda of
the CJSTC's August 9 meet-
ing.
Joseph S. White, FDLE
counsel of record for this
case, said that the effect of
the dismissal is to remove
the case from the state's di-
vision of administrative
hearings, and return it to
CJSTC, which will hear the
case on August 9. White de-
clined further comment on
the case, which he said is still
pending.


has the third-lowest millage
rate in the state, but could
become the sixth most im-
pacted county by the state
tax design. Brannon added,
"It is important to remain
proactive in addressing our


growing infrastructure
needs, such as roads, parks,
etc. Unfortunately, our
county is affected much dif-
ferently than others. Due*to
our lack of state funded road
improvements over the past


15 years for Highway 331, it
becomes a public safety issue
for us." Brannon also up-
dated the Kiwanis on current
park and boat ramp projects
and improvements ongoing
in the county.


City of DeFuniak Springs asks for

voluntary water conservation


The city of DeFuniak
Springs water system is op-
erating at higher than nor-
mal pumping rates due to the
dry weather conditions. To
make sure the systems
pumps and equipment are
not overworked, and to be
prepared if the dry condi-
tions continue, the city is
asking residents and busi-
nesses on the water system


to use smart water conserva-
tion practices on watering
lawns and washing vehicles.

Residents are asked to vol-
untarily follow the "odd-
even" method for outdoor
watering use. That means
street addresses with an odd
number can water on odd
days of the calendar, and the
opposite for even-numbered


thin is in.

asked to stop outdoor water-
ing from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. This
is the period of peak water
demand. Dependent on rain-
fall and water usage, the city
may impose mandatory re-
strictions in the future. The
city is asking residents at
this time to voluntarily con-
serve until the area gets
some rain.

Spring into a New Water Workout
Spring is a season of change and the perfect time to mix things up
with a new water workout. Changing your workout can alleviate
boredom and help you achieve betterfitness results.
"Muscles have memory-- meaning they can get accustomed to the
same workout," says Peggy Brower, a certified Aquatics Instructor.
"By changing your water workout, you are shocking your muscles."
Brower says, "I have seen very fast results with water workouts
because water automatically works the opposing muscle group unlike a
land-based exercise program where you have to work the opposing
muscle group separately. Water is constantly giving a massage to the
body. It really is a liquid weight room. You will bum fat and many
calories in a water exercise class."

If you cannot take classes, here is a simple structure to help you
design your own workout:
1. Warm up 2-3 minutes of easy movements. Focus on the entire
body, head to toe. Flex and extend all the joints, keeping
movements at a low to moderate speed.
2. Main Session 20-40 minutes of continuous aerobic activity.
Workout within your personal fitness level and established medical
guidelines
3. Strength Water Workout (optional) 5-15 minutes of abdominal
and/or arm exercises using strength resistant equipment.
AquaJogger Products are sold at 331 Pool & Beach Supply
on US 331 just south of Freeport, FL.
4. Cool Down 3 minutes of easy fluid movements in the water.
Decrease speed and perform movements which emphasize those
muscle groups worked during the session.
5. Stretch A thorough stretch is always a good idea after (and
before) your workout.

A return to


By CHUCK HINSON
It seems hard to believe
that almost two years ago,
the face of the Gulf Coast was
changed forever. When Hur-
ricane Katrina began a path
of destruction through the
Mississippi Gulf Coast and
the greater New Orleans
area, the face of the map and
the lives of millions were al-
tered overnight.
On August 29, 2005,
Katrina made landfall and
caused billions of dollars in
damage and cost many lives.
It was the worst natural di-
saster in U.S. history.
In December 2006,1 I wrote
a story and shot pictures
showing the massive de-
struction and the miles of
debris Katrina left behind.
Now, 20 months later, much
has changed, yet much re-
mains to be done.
Driving into Biloxi on In-
terstate 10 and exiting onto
Interstate 110, things seem
to have begun to return to
normal. There are billboards
advertising department store
sales, numerous casino signs
announce they are open for
business. Many casinos have
"mega-million dollar jack-
pots" advertised that can be
won any day of the week.
Landscaping has been re-
planted. Roofs, for the most
part, no longer have blue vi-
nyl stretched across them.
Even the once-deserted soc-
cer and sports playing fields
had action going on.
Here, at least, it seems
that life is getting back to the
way it was before that fate-
ful day in August.
This scene is a far cry from
20 months ago, when all that
could be seen were downed
trees, overturned cars, boats-
in storefront windows,
cranes wrenched in every di-
rection, debris from homes
and property spread out for
miles down the street and
signs on the casinos saying
"closed indefinitely."
What was once a blasted
landscape, a ruined ghost
town, now seems to have
been remade. Those who sur-
vived Katrina's terrible
wrath have begun to rebuild
their lives.
From a hotel room on the
11th story at the Isle of Capri
hotel, one can look out and
see the Bay Bridge that links
Biloxi and Ocean Springs be-
ing worked on by hundreds
of men and women. The
bridge, closed since Hurri-
cane Katrina pulverized the
concrete span, is set to open
in just a few months. Traffic
between Biloxi and Ocean
Springs can resume.
On the other side of the
hotel, one can see that
progress, especially for the
casino and gaming industry
- the biggest employer for the
region has really taken the
fast track. The casinos were
among the first in the area
to reorganize employees and
begin the rebuilding effort.
The Magic Casino is on
the demolition block and all
that remains is the hotel
structure and a few steel
beams. Plans are to remodel
and rebuild.
Looking down the coast-
line on Hwy. 90, better
known as "Casino Row," one
can, for the moment, see the
beaches again. Anxious to re-
sume getting its share of the
casinos' vast gambling rev-
enues, the state passed a law
allowing casinos to build on
land if they desired. So far,
the Grand Hotel and Casino
are the only ones that have
chosen that option.
Heading down the strip,
one can see the Hard Rock
Casino and Resort renova-
tions are almost complete.
They plan to open on July 7
of this year. Ironically, it had
been scheduled to open the
day Katrina hit in 2005, but
the storm demolished the
barge upon which the casino
rested.
The Beau Rivage fared


much better. It sits just as
majestically as it ever did
and its landscaped entrance
is still one of the "must-see"
sights on the coastline.
Sitting by the pool was a
young lady, Christina
Brewster, a student at South-
ern Mississippi University in
Hattiesburg. After Katrina,
she was forced to attend the
coastal branch campus.
She talked of her family


home, located on Ranier
Street, just one block from
the coastline. When Katrina
hit, she was not at home, but
her mother had refused to
leave.
"She told me as I drove off
the Sunday morning of the
storm, 'If it floods here, then
I know that this is the end of
the world.'" Even 20 months
later, Christina Brewster re-
lated the painful memory
with a tear rolling down her
face. Little did her mother
know that destruction would
come that, for many families,
would be the end of the world
as they knew it.
According to Brewster, as
the water began to rise in her
family's single-story home,
her mother was eventually
forced to retreat to the top of
her refrigerator to ride out
the waves. Mrs. Brewster
and her dog stayed afloat on
the makeshift boat for nearly
24 hours.
After the storm hit, it was
four days before her mother
was able to call Christina
and let her know that she
was alive. "We cried for 30
minutes and talked for 10
minutes. I knew I had to get
back down there from
Vicksburg where I had fled
the day of the storm," Chris-
tina recounted.
Once she arrived home,
they toured the house that
had been nearly destroyed.
As she and her brother fol-
lowed behind in shock, they
noticed writing in the top cor-
ner of the ceiling in the
kitchen.

Here is the sixth article in the series on Breast Health

What happens if it is
Breast Cancer?

Most of the time, early breast cancer does not have any symp-
toms. As it grows, breast cancer can sometimes cause changes
in how your breast looks or feels. Symptoms include:
A lump that wasn't there before.
A lump that has changed.
A change in the size or shape of the breast.
Pain in your breast or nipple that doesn't go away.
Skin anywhere on the breast that is flaky, red, or swollen.
A nipple that is very tender.
A nipple that turns in (when it hasn't been like that).
Fluid coming from your nipple when not nursing a baby.
For many women, treatment for breast cancer begins with in a
.few weeks after the diagnosis. Usually, a woman has time to
learn about her options and doesn't have to make an immediate
decision. She can discuss her treatment choices with her doctor,
get a second opinion, talk to friends, or learn from other women
with cancer. It is normal to feel some shock and stress, making it
hard to process information at first or even to ask questions.
Some women find it helps to make a list of questions, take notes,
or have a family member or friend with them when they talk to the
doctor. The most important thing is that a woman feels informed
of her options and comfortable with her decision.
Common treatments for breast cancer include one or more of
the following:
Surgery: Several types of surgery ranging from a lumpectomy,
which removes only the tumor, to a radical mastectomy, which
removes the breast, lymph nodes, and chest muscle.
Radiation therapy: special high-energy X-rays and other types
of radiation to kill cancer cells.
Chemotherapy: drugs to kill or stop the growth of cancer cells.
Hormone therapy: removes hormones or blocks their action to
stop cancer cells from growing.
Your best defense in the fight against breast cancer is follow-
ing a healthy lifestyle and early detection screening. 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.

AFTER THE REPAIRS and repainting, the old Jones Schoolhouse shines like a new-penny.


Jones family lfeacy: The It,


By CAROLINE -IHORN-
TON
In March 2007, Victor Bud
Jones, a commercial painter
in Fort Walton Beach, and
his daughter, Brandi Jones,
saw' that the old Jones
Schoolhouse needed paint-
ing. When they started pres-
sure-washing and cleaning,
they realized that due to 90
years of painting, they would
need to take the boards back
to the wood to get a quality
paint job. Victor and Brandi
worked many hours to meet
the challenge.
Five generations of the
Jones family have cherished
and been involved in this
goal of education provided by
the use of this building.
Henry Emerald Jones
helped construct the one-
room public school. Bud


Jones, as a third-or fourth-
grade student, was a student
in the first class in this build-
ing. He is the son of Henry
Emerald. Charles Bud Jones,
a speaker at the last rededi-
cation representing the
Jones family, thanked Greg
Gandy and gave him a small
gift from the family, a deer
hide that he cured. The hide
was to reseat the teachers'
desk chair. Victor Bud Jones
painted the building in
March and all work, time and
paint were donated by Victor.
He is the son of Charles Bud
Jones. Brandi Jones, helped
her father, Victor, pressure-
clean and paint the building
in March.
Before 1916, two brothers
living south of DeFuniak
Springs saw a need for a
school building and they


acedd the challenge. Both of
the brothers had families
with school-aged children,
and they desired to have an
education for the children.
Dallas Jones gave three acres
of his land, which is located
in the Woodlawn community.
Henry Emerald Jones helped
his brother harvest the tim-
bers from the property for the
construction of the school.
The timber on the land was
sawed into boards.
On August 10, 1916, The
Walton County School Board
gave the Jones brothers $175
to construct the building.
Both brothers were carpen-
ters and Dallas was also a
mason, and could easily lay
bricks and rocks used for the
fireplaces and hearths. His
fireplaces did a wonderful job
of heating on cold winter

Williams
Essie Victoria Williams, 87,
of Bonifay, FL., passed away
Sunday, May 27, 2007, sur-
rounded by her family and
friends at Bay Medical Cen-
ter in Panama City, FL.
She was born in Holmes
County on March 16, 1920 to
Louis Henry Kelley and Mary
Frances Worley Kelley. Will-
iams settled in Port St. Joe,
FL., and began her career at
the paper mill as a smelt
taster. She was one of the few
who tasted what she called
the chemicals for the pulp.
She was proud to work while
her men fought in World War
II. Later, she studied at Gulf
Coast Junior College to study
to be a dietician. While work-
ing for the Port St. Joe Hospi-
tal, she served many a nutri-
tious meal. After moving to
Bonifay, she began a reward-
ing 20 years of assisting the
elderly and sick for the
Holmes County Council on
Aging before she retired at 82.
In the fall of 1936, she met
and married her first hus-
band, Rupert Randall Ray, of
Knox Hill, FL. They had two
'daughters, Gloria June Ray
(deceased) and Martha Leah
Ray. In 1943, she married
Alonso Knight and had a son,
Ralph Henry Knight.
After many years, her third
and final marriage was to a
longtime friend, James M.
Williams, of Fort White, FL.
After Williams passed away in
1983, she remained in their
home in Bonifay, surrounded


by her many family and
friends whom she treasured.
Williams also enjoyed
traveling. She loved life. As
a young woman, she trav-
eled by rail on the old Silver
Bullet that ran through
Panama City to New York.
While in New York, she
enjoyed dancing to the mu-
sic of the great Big Bands of
a long forgotten era when
evening gowns glittered,
pearls glistened and fur
coats shined.
She never forgot a face,
and never forgot a birthday.
It might be a day late, but it
had a dollar in it.
She will be greatly
missed.
Williams was preceded in
death by her husband,
James M. Williams; a
daughter, Gloria June Ray;
one brother, Loren Spurgen
Kelley, and three sisters,
Beulah Rebecca Hatfield,
Eula Victoria Revells Rogers
and Ruthie Beatrice Adkins
Williams.
She is survived by one son,
Ralph Knight and his wife,
Jerlon; one daughter,
Martha, Mims Langford
Ammons and husband,
Truman; grandchildren, Tim
Mims and wife, Melissa,
Tami Mims Jones, Kim
Knight, Kelli Knight Ford,
Matthew Knight and
Jonathan Knight; and great-
grandchildren, Josh Jones,
Jesse Jones, Cole Mims,
Paige Mims, Isiah Mims,
Samantha Ford and Justin
Knight.
Her grandsons served as
pallbearers.
Funeral Services were
held at Peel Funeral Home
in Bonifay, May 30, 2007.
Rev. Douglas Newsome of
Dothan, Rev. Tim Bailey of
Port St. Joe and Rev. James
Dye of Bonifay officiated at
the service. Interment fol-
lowed at Holly Hill
Cemetary in Port St. Joe.

"The circle made its
round, pleasure nor pity nor
love nor pain nor sorrow has
gone in vain."

Dog's best friend... petfinder.com


By TAMMY KEARCE
After walking into the ani-
mal shelter and explaining
that I wanted a small dog, I
was shown to an area where
I assumed fluffy, fuzzy, play-
ful dogs would await. Instead,
two yapping, snarling mon-
grels greeted me with ear
piercing barks and vicious
growls. How two dogs smaller
than a common housecat
could make so much noise
and be so ferocious was be-


yond me.
I emerged from the "small
dog" area and asked an em-
ployee of the shelter if there
were no others available.
"No, those little guys really
go fast," he replied. I left
empty-handed and it was
another five years before I
found my canine companion.
This episode occurred in the
late 1980s and at that time
it was typical for adoption
options to be limited and,


unfortunately, thousands of
pets euthanatized.
However, today two area
shelters, Allen Rescue Foun-
dation, located on Hwy. 83 in
the old Coca-Cola building,
and Alaqua Animal Refuge,
located in Freeport, have
joined Petfinder.com. The
website currently lists more
than 200,000 pets on a user-
friendly site where potential
owners can peruse listings


and read thousands of pets'
profiles.
In addition to an astound-
ing assortment of traditional
cats and dogs, Petfinder.com
lists reptiles, farm animals
(sheep, goats, cows and pigs),
ferrets, tarantulas, and
turtles. Listings are searched
in regard to zip code, so list-
ings nearest the indicated
area are shown first, making
searching systematic and
simple.


A variety of animals rang-
ing from Gwen, an energetic
iguana who loves to climb, or
Orphy, a horse orphaned at
birth who loves to play ball;
to Buck, a Labrador retriever
mix who loves long walks,
and Molly, a full-grown,
friendly feline, can be found
on the website.
Adoption fees are re-
quired, but most adoptive
pets have received required


shots and health screenings
and some have been spayed
or neutered prior to adoption.
There is no fee to search
petfinder.com and individual
shelters handle adoptions.
Petfinder.com is respon-
sible for more than 15 million
adoptions since its inception
in 1996, and the addition of
two local shelters to its ranks
represents hope for many of
the area's orphan animals.

With the hurricane pre-
paredness sales tax holiday

AmeriCorps Disaster Pre-
paredness Team at Okaloosa-
Walton College is asking the
community to lend a hand, by
purchasing extra supplies to
donate to a hurricane disas-
ter kit project.

semble and distribute the
kits during presentations to
special-needs citizens, in the

backpacks, and non-perish-
able foods items'such as
granola bars and energy
snacks. A drop box for do-
nated supplies will be outside
the student activities office,


located on the OWC Niceville
campus, in Building K. Those
who wish to contribute finan-
cially may do so by check, to
the OWC Foundation, noting
on the memo line "Ameri-
Corps Disaster Kit Project."
The OWC AmeriCorps Di-
saster Preparedness Team
was formed in January of
2007 to assist and educate


elderly, disabled, and non-
English speaking citizens on
how to prepare for emer-
gency situations and respond
to disaster needs in the Gulf
States.
Team members, in part-
nership with local relief
agencies, give presentations
on what to do before, during,
and after a disaster strikes.


Members also complete
courses in OWC's Emergency
Administrator and Manager
Certificate program while
working 40 to 50 hours a

cies such as the Bridgeway

nior Volunteer Program

Dennis Grey and his wife
Elicia wanted to give people
the chance to be a part of
something new and exciting
in seeking God's direction.
This desire gave birth to
Freedom Fellowship Inter-
national, a church located in
DeFuniak Springs across
from Ed's Restaurant.
"We are here for real
people, in a real world, des-
perate to get real with God,"
Grey says.
During his senior year at
Florida State University,
Grey felt led to work with the
youth at his hometown
church in Baker. Every Fri-
day he drove home as soon
as his last class was over to
do so.
After graduation in 1993,
he coached football in Baker.


In 1994, his family moved
to North Carolina for three
years, where Grey was a foot-
ball and baseball coach and
Elicia taught second grade.
They both served as youth
pastors as well.
In 1996, Grey became a li-
censed minister with Evan-
gel Fellowship I n t e r n a -
tional.
In 1997, the family moved
back to the Panhandle where
they taught school and
served as youth and associ-
ate pastors at Courts of
Praise International for
about six years.
In 2001, they built a house
in DeFuniak Springs.
In 2004, Dennis and Elicia
were hired as teachers by the
Walton County School Dis-
trict. The call of God was


present in their lives, he said.
Seeking God's will, they felt
led to open a new oppro-
tunity for people to worship
God the way they truly feel
in their hearts.
Pastor Grey and his wife
have two sons, 10-year-old
Trace and 6-year-old Tanner.
The family invites every-
one to church services which
are held at 10:30 a.m. each
Sunday at Freedom Fellow-
ship International, located
across the street from Ed's
Restaurants.

First Presbyterian to hold family


vacation Bible school, June 18-21


First Presbyterian Church
of DeFuniak Springs will
hold its vacation Bible school
during the evenings this year
to allow the whole family to
participate in the fun and fel-
lowship. The program is set
for Monday, June 18, through
Thursday, June 21, from
5:30-7:30 each evening.
The theme for this year's
program is Galilee-by-the-
Sea, as the church is trans-
formed into a seaside village.
Children and families will be
worshiping God through
songs and prayer, making
projects and discovering life-
changing truths in fun and
memorable ways. The main
theme of Galilee-by-the-Sea
is to show Jesus chooses us,
teaches us, heals us, protects
us, and provides for us.
There will also be pro-
grams for parents and young
adults. Rev. John J. Napoli III
will lead a series on the book,
"The Jesus Family Tomb" by
Simcha Jacobovici and


ROBERT AMMONS and
teacher, Melissa Olwick.


Charles Pellegrino. The book
was at the center of much
discussion recently when it
was featured on the Discov-
ery Channel's program "The
Lost Tomb of Jesus."
Christian Education Com-
mittee Chairman, Joe Dob-
son, will lead the program for
young adults on the symbol-
ism of water in both the Old
and New Testaments. The
discussion will focus on the
importance of water and the
sea in some of the central sto-
ries of the Bible from the
creation; to Noah and the
flood; to the Israelites' escape
from Egypt; to the impor-
tance of water in the minis-
try of Jesus. Dobson and
Napoli are both graduates of
Columbia Theological Semi-
nary in Decatur, GA.
Each evening's program
will start at 5:30 with dinner
for the whole family. Monday
will be a finger-food supper,
other evenings will feature a
spaghetti supper and a taco

supper, concluding on Thurs-
day evening with the tradi-
tional family-favorite, a hot
dog supper.

cated at 1063 Circle Drive, in

DeFuniak Springs.
Every Sunday morning,


the church starts the day

of A.W.A.N.A.'s first year at

A.W.A.N.A., which stands
for Approved Workmhien Are

on scripture that is learned
through workbooks. On an
average, children learn ap-
proximately 150 scriptures

children are rewarded with
Awana dollars for completed
assignments. These
A.W.A.N.A. dollars are used

This year, participants also

Westville Assembly of God

raise money for building
funds.
The Blue Grass Pilgrims,
Dixie Land Grass, along with
others will be performing
starting at 10 a.m. on June
9. Fish, chicken, and barbe-


cue plates, with all the trim-
mings, will be offered for a $5
donation. Lunch will begin
at 11 a.m.
Westville Assembly of God
is located on N. Hwy. 181 in
Westville, FL.

Everyone is invited.


Paul and his friends were
poor. The people called the
Philippians had met their
wants, and continued to do
so. In Philippians 4:19, Paul
told them, "But my God shall
supply all your needs accord-
ing to His riches in glory by
Christ Jesus." They had a
"bank" that would never
close. We who believe have
the same bank.
The verse concedes that
the Christian has needs,
"shall supply all your needs."
Not all our wishes and
whims are met, but our
needs. It is the same thought
that the Psalmist when he
said that the Lord being his
Shepherd, he would not want
anything really good for him
(Psalm 23).
But how many our needs
are! We have needs for body,
mind and soul. We have
needs for our families,
friends, and dependents.
There are needs for the
present and the future. All
people have needs for time
and for eternity. That is why
our Lord added to the verse


by inspiration, "By Christ
Jesus."
Notice the source of the
supply: "My God shall sup-
ply." Where can such a sup-
ply be found? Why, with the
Lord, for"Every good gift and
every perfect gift is from
above." The God of all things
is the God of providence, and
He supplies. No one else can
cause us to be satisfied with
such things as we have. He
opens His hand and supplies
the needs of every living
thing.
He is the God of peace, for
He said "My grace is suffi-
cient for thee." He is also the
God of heaven. He has won-
derful things and riches in
reserve for us there.

Notice also the measure of
the supply, "According to His
riches in glory." God is a glo-
rious giver. What ever He
does is done in a way worthy
of Himself. The "riches of His
grace" are the treasures of
the Bank of Heavep, to which
all believers have access for
all time through Christ.

In Loving Memory of
James Obie McKee Jr.
July 15, 1973-May 31, 2005


I want to be successful, to somehow
overcome all I have been through.
Because everyone, not just me,has been mistreated
and abused in one way or another at
some time in their lives.
To be helpful and patient, not a know-it-all
or a problem solver.
Just a friend, to all people, friends,
and enemies alike.
To never forget humanity, for it is being human,
and understanding that I'm not alone that counts.
Millions have suffered alot longer than I ever have,
yes, humanity is cruel.
It makes us jealous to covet someone else's things
and steal to make them ours.
It makes us mad, mad enough to say hurtful things,
destroy things, even kill each other.
It makes us vengeful, spiteful, and hateful,
but humanity is also a quality.
It makes us help those who need it.
Humanity is the state of sympathy, even a little
sorrow, when someone else is suffering.
It is a child's laugh and an old man's sigh.
It is the absolute joy of feeling that one emotion when
someone, does somethingj..just one little word.
But that one word encompasses so much.
It is why are we allowed to
live our lives, eat, and sleep.
It is why we are even allowed to exist.
No other emotion can make you feel as loved,
as respected, as cherished, or as happy
as forgiveness.
(Written by James Obie McKee Jr.)

Roberts wins Boeing Championship at Sandestin


By REID TUCKER
Loren Roberts took the
win after three intense
rounds of play Sunday, June
3, at The Raven in Sandestin,
making him the 12th differ-
ent winner in 13 events so far
this season.
Early on, it looked as
though current Senior PGA
leader Jay Haas would pull
out an easy victory; his
scorecard seemed to indicate
this wouldn't be a problem
for him. Haas shot 64 during
the first round, but was
beaten out by rival Tom
Purtzer, who shot 62. In the
second round, Haas showed
himself to be the man to beat,
shooting 65, leaving few oth-
ers in serious contention.

Roberts, on the other
hand, bided his time and
scored 65 and 67 during the
first two rounds of play.
On Sunday, the first eight
holes consisted mainly of
leader change and leader
change between Haas,
Eduardo Romero of Argen-
tina, Tom Purtzer, and Rob-
erts.
Things got ugly on the
ninth hole. Right off the tee,
Haas hooked his shot into the
water trap, losing a stroke.
Then remarkably, in the drop
zone, the ball went back into
the sink, putting him two
strokes down. Romero
wasted no time in capitaliz-
ing on the misstep, and took
the lead.
Romero's time in the spot-
light was short-lived.


Roberts came on strong at
the 10th hole and birdied,
pulling a stroke ahead.
Romero countered with his
own birdie at the 11th hole.
From there on out, Haas
didn't have much of a chance
and, by the 17th hole, was
bogeying everything in sight.
Roberts, on the other
hand, had much better luck,
achieving a birdie on the
same hole, effectively secur-
ing his win.
After that, it didn't mat-
ter that he bogeyed the last
hole, he was already three
strokes up on the next clos-
est player, Romero, who ran
into a bit of a problem with
holes 15 and 16.
For the first half of
Sunday's round of play, the
wind was a help to nearly ev-
eryone, the players being
able to drive the ball farther,
and for the spectators, reliev-
ing some of the summer per-
spiration. In the latter half
of play, though, the golfers
were facing into the wind,
making everything from 8-
iron drives and the shortest
of puts difficult.
According to Raven Golf
Club officials, attendance
over the three-day tourna-
ment was around 68,000.
The next bit of big news
involving the Boeing Cham-
pionship is whether or not
there will even be another
tournament at the Raven.
The tournament's price
tag runs nearly $2 million
per hit, a cost deferred to
sponsors Boeing and Buffalo


Rock Bottling Company.
However, both companies
have decided to say goodbye
to the event after this year.
For Buffalo Rock, next year
would've been 14 years of
continuous sponsorship.
While the fate of the tour-
nament is up in the air, in the
minds of players, there isn't


much question: if there is a -
tournament next year, re-
gardless of the name of the
sponsor, they would like to
come back to Sandestin.
Tournament winner Loren
Roberts went as far as to say,
that the event stood up
among his "top five of the 41
entire tour." -


LOREN ROBERTS tees off at the Raven Golf Club in
Sanci st on Sunday'. Jun t 3. Roberts won $247,500 for his
QIorts a. tOu rti inam-nt w'itir.


DESPITE DOMINATING the first two rounds ofplay, Jay
Haas came up short in the final holes of the afternoon, fall-
ing back to fifth place.

Sports news and notes


By PATRICK CASEY
College baseball season
came to an abrupt end last
week for several schools, in-
cluding FSU, who was
knocked off at home by Mis-
sissippi State. Miami also fell
in their regional to Louis-
ville. No team from Alabama,
Georgia or Florida made it to
the Super Regional round
that will be held this week-
end.

Chipola Junior College
won the National Junior Col-
lege World Series on Satur-
day night with a 7-3 victory
over New Mexico Junior Col-
lege. Chipola went 5-1 in the
event that was held in Grand
Junction, Colorado. Ryan
Chafee pitched a complete
game five-hitter as Chipola
finished the year with a 41-
18 record and the title.
Troy alumni Lawrence
Tynes was traded by the
Kansas City Chiefs to the
New York Giants last week.
Tynes (6-1, 202) played in 48


regular season games and
one postseason contest in
three seasons (2004-06) with
Kansas City. He converted 68
of 87 field goals and 137 of
141 extra points for 341
points. The Troy team con-
nected on 45 of 62 field goals
and 127 of 131 extra points
for 262 points during his
four-year collegiate career for
the.Trojans. Tynes was a
standout kicker at Milton
High School as well.
Florida senior first
baseman Matt LaPorta was
selected 2007 SEC Baseball
Player of the Year,
Vanderbilt's junior
left-hander David Price was
named SEC Pitcher of the
Year and Ole Miss outfielder
Jordan Henry was named
SEC Freshman of the Year by
a vote of the league's 12 head
baseball coaches. Blake Dean
of Crestview was named to
the All-Freshman team as an
outfielder for LSU.
At the conclusion of the
2007 regular season, SEC


baseball teams saw
1,575,873 in paid attendance
at their home stadiums,
nearly 100,000 more than
during the 2006 record-set-
ting season. In addition, the
average attendance at each
game rose to 4,010, a new all-
time high as well. The SEC
has drawn over one million
in paid attendance for six
straight seasons. No other
conference has ever drawn a
million or more fans to its
baseball stadiums during a
single season. With on-cam-
pus NCAA Regionals and
Super Regionals yet to be
added in, the SEC is well on
pace to breaking the 2006 to-
tal season record of
1,602,536. Four times this
season, over 10,000 fans
gathered at a SEC baseball
game, as Arkansas hosted
three of those crowds and
Mississippi State one.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, JUNE 7, 2007

Top 10 local sports high- A

lights 2006-07 (Part 1)


Top 10 local sports highlights
- 2006-07 (Part 1)
By PATRICK CASEY
The end of another school
year brings to a close yet an-
other chapter in local athletic
history. For some, the look
ahead to next year brings
hope for improvement, for
others, the realization that a
repeat of success may be a
near impossible task.
After looking back on the
school year that was, the
Class of 2007, ten items
stand out from what was a
solid athletic year for all five
of our area high schools that
the DeFuniak Herald tries to
cover on a daily basis.
In no particular order, but
with much appreciation, here
is a list of the top 10 things
you might have missed, or
just might enjoy remember-
ing before we move on to the
school year ahead.
10. A new Walton High
School- This isn't so much an
athletic achievement as
catching up with new high
schools at Freeport and
South Walton. Paxton will
open a new gym and had a
new wing built recently. Wal-
ton has been much the same
since the library building
was built in front of the
school in the mid-1990's. Not
so for the future. The Walton
County School Board broke
ground on a two-story build-
ing to be built adjacent to the
current high school site us-
ing the original architecture
of the old Walton High School
that previously existed at the
current Walton Middle
School campus. For the next
couple of years that will
mean less parking at athletic
events as the new school is
erected.
The promise for the future
is a new gymnasium incorpo-
rated into the new school
building design. The new
high school structure carries
a hefty price tag of $30-40
million but will be a monu-
ment to a school that cel-
ebrated its 100th graduating
class'in 2007. Over-the next
decade, we can hope to see
the facilities take on a look
similar to the athletic center
at Doak Campbell Stadium
in Tallahassee that incorpo-
rates offices, classrooms, stu-
dent areas and athletic facili-
ties in a convenient design of
which the community can be
proud.
9. Josh Nettles at Wiscon-
sin- Josh Nettles left Walton
County in the summer of.
2006 owning several records
at Walton High School and a
Division I scholarship to play
football at the University of
Wisconsin in Madison. Wal-
ton County does not often
have athletes compete at the
Division I level, but Nettles
was able to do so as a fresh-
man, mainly on special
teams. Nettles had six kick-
off returns for 88 yards, four
tackles on defense and a
fumble recovery. Nettles fin-
ished spring practice as a sec-
ond-team cornerback for the
Badgers entering fall prac-
tice. Josh has given the area
a reason to watch Big Ten
football and has three more
years of eligibility at the
school.

Fundraiser
planned

A fundraiser will be held
for the Ponce De Leon Tigers
and DeFuniak Springs Red
Sox baseball teams.
The event will be held at
the team's headquarters on
Smith Road, off Hwy. 90, on
Saturday, June 9, starting at
3 p.m. There will be live en-
tertainment and barbecue
plates, cooked by the team
owner, Don Graham.
Special prizes to be given
away and merchandise will
be available for purchase. All
the money will go toward
purchasing the team jerseys,
equipment and travel ex-


pense. The new team shirts
for away games will be a solid
red jersey (PDL white let-
tering and DFS black let-
tering). Donations will be
accepted at the event and
everyone is invited.
For information or direc-
tions, contact Jennifer Will-
iams at 892-4027 or
dgenterprisellc @earth
link.net.


8. Walton High School had
a lot of success signing ath-
letes to college scholarships
this past school year. Jesse
Tucker is off to play softball
at Stetson. Alex Smith signed
to play football at Souther Il-
linois with Devin Gibson
heading off to Missouri Val-
ley College. Jessica Gainey
and Jessica Morgan signed to
play soccer at Andrew Col-
lege, just to name a few. Add
in Josh Nettles at Wisconsin,
Matt Carter at William
Carey University, Jeremy
Dunbar to Southeastern
Louisiana via Okaloosa-Wal-
ton College and Darryl
McGhee at Gulf Coast Com-
munity College in basketball
from the year before and
Walton is beginning to send
athletes to the next level on
a consistent basis. That
earns a tip of the hat not just
for the players, but for their
coaches too.
7. Odie Delaney and
Katherine Register are state
champions in their indi-
vidual sports at South Wal-
ton. Delaney won the Class
A state title in the winter in
the 189-pound wrestling
class as a junior and contin-
ues to become a force in the
sport. Katherine Register
won the Class A pole vault
title with a vault of 10 feet,
nine inches as a sophomore.
The two will be back for more
next season as the school saw
improvement in athletics,
especially in tennis, softball
and baseball this past sea-
son.
6. Paxton High School has
had a lot of success over its
history, but one of its most
important triumphs will be
the opening of the new Pax-
ton High School gymnasium
this fall. The Bobcats had an-
other successful year on the
field and have overcome mas-
cot controversies, a proposed
football program and the bat
infestation problem in recent
times. As the community
watches, the structure near
coimpletiohn, the hope is that
the future athletic endeavors
continue to prosper for one of
the best-kept, home-grown
athletic programs in the
state.
Part two of this story will
appear in the next edition of
the Herald-Breeze.


DEVIN GIBSON(left) and Alex Smith(right) were just two
of several athletes to sign athletic scholarships from Walton
High School over the past two years.

land. It is known that there
were seven pit bulls .de-

Gas prices: Good for business in Walton?


By JOSHUA SMITH
Walton County's summer
tourist season is in full
swing, and believe it or not,
high gas prices may be ben-
efiting local tourism, at least
according to one county busi-
ness leader.
"We've found historically
that our business increases
with the increase in gas
prices," said Mike Chouri,
general manager of the
Hilton Sandestin Beach Re-
sort. "The short driving dis-
tance from Louisiana,
Misssissippi, Alabama, Geor-
gia, even Tennessee attract
people to our beaches," he
said. "Even after 9/11 when
the airlines were struggling,
our business was booming.
Business this year is defi-
nitely up."
Chouri said that while his
guests do complain about the


high price of traveling to Wal-
ton County beaches for their
vacation, they keep coming
to visit. "They know they
spend extra money to come
here, but they find it's worth
it. I'll ask people 'At what
price would you have to stop
coming?' and they don't have
an answer. They've never
even thought about it."
Shirley Drake hears the
complaints about high gas
prices as well. She's the man-
ager of the Tom Thumb Food
Store at the corner of U.S.
331 and Hwy. 90 in DeFu-
niak Springs. But she also
said that the prices haven't
seemed to hurt business thus
far. "Business is about the
same," she said. "It hasn't af-
fected us too much."
The Herald also at-
tempted to contact officials at
the various Fill- Ups stores
in town, as well as their


home office. in Crestview.
However, no comments were
given due to legal action
taken against the company
last week by the state.
As for the tourists, Steve
Adkins is exactly the kind of
visitor that Chouri and
Drake are talking about. He,
his wife, and two children
came down Memorial Day
weekend from Scottsboro,
AL., to vacation in Destin.
But the gas prices didn't
keep them away. "We talked
about (not taking a vacation
because of gas prices)," he
said. "I wish gas prices were
lower." When asked if he
would have decided differ-
ently if prices were even
higher, he laughed and said,
"Probably not."
Not every local business is
benefiting, from the current
gas prices.
"Right now with dinner,
we're not doing as well as we


have in past years," said
Rodger Leatherberry, owner
of McLean's Steakhouse on
U.S. 331 near Interestate 10.
Leatherberry attributes
this loss in business to higher
gas prices. "You look at the
Interstate in the evening
here and it's dead," he said.
"Friday of Memorial Day
weekend, at 7:30 p.m., there
was no traffic at all. Then at
8:30 p.m., it was bumper to
bumper down 331 with
people making a beeline to
the beach."
Leatherberry said people
just aren't stopping on their
way south. "It's going to take
time for people to adjust to
the new prices," he said.
However, another local
business is also doing well
now that the summer season
has begun.
"Memorial day weekend
was very good," said Michelle
Harding, owner of Hotel De-


Funiak. "We had a couple of
wedding receptions, and our
next few weekends are look-
ing good as well," she said.
Harding said this past
weekend was not as good as
hoped, but attributed that to
the Boeing Championship in
Sandestin, as well as the
Billy Bowlegs Festival,
which most certainly ben-
efited Walton County busi-
ness south of the bay.
However, the outlook for
the entire summer for her
business is looking strong.
"Another thing to consider,
is the amazing growth.lo-
cally," Harding said. "The
people moving north from
the beaches is helping us as
well."
All in all, despite that
painful feeling most resi-
dents feel at the pump this
summer, Walton County
business is still going strong.

ANOTHER JOHN GRAY original. Gray began hand-
painting hats after purchasing an old hat at a thrift store. He
didn't like the hatband so he took it off and painted a new one
in its place. The idea was a hit among family and friends and
local artist Don Sawyer encouraged Gray to keep at it.

Legislators

declare

'affordability

week'

By DOTTY NIST
"We want property taxes to
be affordable," said Florida
House Speaker Marco Rubio.
Rubio and Ray Sansom,
speaker-designate, met with
media representatives in
Okaloosa County this week to
provide information on a new
proposal for property tax
reform that will go before the
Florida Legislature in a June
12-22 special session.
Rubio noted that high
property taxes are driving
businesses and residents out
of Florida. He said that too
often he has been hearing the
-comment that Florida is now
becoming too much like the
places that many people
wanted to leave behind when
they came to Florida.
Rubio and Sansom blamed
the problem on local
government. Sansom
charged Florida cities and
counties with "out-of-control
spending." Rubio said he
wanted to change local
governments' process of
beginning the budget process
by making up a "laundry list"
of needs.
Instead, the budget
process should being with
deciding "how much people
can afford to pay," he
asserted, with governments
then creating budgets to
"make do" with that amount.
"We think that way makes
a lot more sense," he said.
The legislators were in
hopes that citizens would
contact members of their
legislative delegation to
communicate what would be
an affordable tax level for
them.
"Let them know what kind
of relief you need," Rubio
urged.
Rubio said that the House
of Representative has an
agreement with the Florida
Senate on how property taxes
will be cut. The debate for the
special session will be how
much the cut will be, he
explained.
"I'm confident we'll be able

Four north Florida

juveniles charged

with setting fires


Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services Commis-
sioner (FACSC) Charles H.
Bronson today announced
the arrest of three Clay
County juveniles for reckless
burning of lands in connec-
tion with a wildfire that
caused $92,000 in damage,
and an arrest of a Jackson
County youth for starting a
different fire by using a gaso-
line bomb.
The three Clay County ju-
veniles were charged in con-
nection with a May 23 wild-
fire that occurred in
Middleburg. It burned two
acres and destroyed a home.
The property owner esti-
mated the value of loss at
approximately $92,000. An
investigation conducted by
the Office of Agricultural
Law Enforcement (OALE) in
conjunction with the Clay
County Sheriff's Office, iden-
tified the suspects, who con-
fessed to shooting off fire-
works, which started the fire.
The juveniles were charged
with reckless burning of
lands, a second-degree mis-
demeanor.
In the second incident, au-
thorities arrested a 16-year-
old Jackson County youth for
allegedly filling a bottle with
gasoline, igniting paper
placed in the neck of the
bottle, and tossing it into a
wooded area of Graceville,
which caused a one-acre fire
on May 27. No structures
were lost in the fire. The
youth was charged with in-
tentional burning of lands, a
felony. All four of the arrests
occurred over the Memorial
Day weekend.
Both fires were suppressed

culture and Consumer Ser-

Spring into a New Water Workout
Spring is a season of change and the perfect time to mix things up
with a new water workout. Changing your workout can alleviate
boredom and help you achieve betterfitness results.
"Muscles have memory-- meaning they can get accustomed to the
same workout," says Peggy Brower, a certified Aquatics Instructor.
"By changing your water workout, you are shocking your muscles."
Brower says, "I have seen very fast results with water workouts
because water automatically works the opposing muscle group unlike a
land-based exercise program where you have to work the opposing
muscle group separately. Water is constantly giving a massage to the
body. It really is a liquid weight room. You will burn fat and many
calories in a water exercise class.",
If you cannot take classes, here is a simple structure to help you
design your own workout:
1. Warm up 2-3 minutes of easy movements. Focus on the entire
body, head to toe. Flex and extend all the joints, keeping
movements at a low to moderate speed.
2. Main Session 20-40 minutes of continuous aerobic activity.
Workout within your personal fitness level and established medical
guidelines
3. Strength Water Workout (optional) 5-15 minutes of abdominal
and/or arm exercises using strength resistant equipment.
AquaJogger Products are sold at 331 Pool & Beach Supply
on US 331 just south of Freeport, FL.
4. Cool Down 3 minutes of easy fluid movements in the water.
Decrease speed and perform movements which emphasize those
muscle groups worked during the session.
5. Stretch A thorough stretch is always a good idea after (and
before) your workout.

Mr. Brooks is nothing like he seems


By LEAH STRATMANN
Kevin Costner puts in one
of his best performances in
years in the taut thriller "Mr.
Brooks." While there are
some major deficiencies in
the film, overall it is nice to
see an intelligently written
film offering thrills, sur-
prises, and more than a few
chuckles.
This is a new addition to
the Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
syndrome, although Mr.
Brooks doesn't have to drink
anything to change character
and seek someone to kill. He
is meticulous in the precise
method in which he selects
and dispatches his victims.
He is by turns a wraith and
a force to be reckoned with:
The story opens with the
killing of a couple prone to
making love with the drapes
open, allowing passersby and
the folks in the apartment
building across the way full
access to their activities. Mr.
Brooks neatly kills them, but
the lights are on, the drapes
are open and a highly dis-
turbed wannabe killer Dane
Cook sees it all, and worse
yet, takes photographs. The
killing occurs on the same


night Mr. Brooks is named
man of the year in Portland,
OR, thus putting his face in
the paper the next day. Cook
uses his photos to blackmail
Mr. Brooks into showing him
the ropes of the serial killing
game.
Mr. Brooks is upset with
himself for killing again. He
has been dormant for two
years, much to the chagrin of
his alter ego, William Hurt,
who, as Marshall, has a
grand time playing the urge
to kill. Mr. Brooks goes to AA
meetings and simply states
he is an addict, while the real
reason for the serial killer's
avocation is never explained.
It can be assumed by other
clues in the movie that the
condition is genetic.

Writer-director Bruce A.
Evans exploits the conversa-
tions between the nerdy, ag-
ing Mr. Brooks and Marshall
to full advantage. Marshall is
insatiable, while Brooks is
desperately trying to quit
and muttering the Serenity
Prayer.
Enter Demi Moore as a de-
tective with a blood lust of
her own: catch the thumb-


print killer. Brooks is so
named because after killing
his victims, he rearranges the
bodies in romantic tableaus,
and puts their blood finger-
prints somewhere in the
room. It's his signature move
and Moore is determined to
find him.
Moore's passion for justice
is slowed by a ridiculous sub-
plot about the escape of a
criminal she put away, and
who has vowed to kill her,
plus a divorce she is going
through. It seems the detec-
tive is a detective for the love
of justice, but just in case she
grows bored with putting
away the bad guys, there is
that $60 million she has in
the bank to tide her over, and
her he-can't-be-my-ex-hus-
band-soon-enough wants a
big piece of the pie. All of this
might have been more believ-
able with a better actress
than Moore in the part, but
as an actress, she's very
pretty and not much else.
Evans and co-writer
Raynold Gideon make a des-
perate attempt to make the
escaped serial killer link up
with the current story, but it
is awkward and one wonders


why they thought they
needed it. The whole vein
could have been removed,
and it would both have
shortened a slightly overlong
film without the damage
done by leaving it in.
However Evans and the
cinematographer clearly en-
joyed lighting the scenes
Costner and Hurt share.
Most of the time Hurt is a
shadowy presence in the
rear-view mirror, but there
.are a number of other re-
minders that only one of
them is real.

Putting a cap on the film
was apparently not easy, be-
cause the movie stops with-
out any closure, satisfactory
or otherwise. Right before
the film is over, the writer
makes a brilliant stab at an
ending, but then backs away
from it and allows the film
to simply stop.
Flaws aside, thesis still an
enjoyable way to spend a
little over two hours. Costner
and Hurt alone are worth
the price of admission. The
film is rated R, although nei-
ther the killings nor the lan-
guage are terribly graphic.

#552G By BRUCE COLLIER
J. Blaine Ashworth has
resigned as director of ser-
vices for the Center for At-
tainable Housing. Ashworth
gave oral notice of his resig-
nation on May 30, according
57 to Dawn Moliterno, director

county, the Walton County
#553G Chamber of Commerce Foun-
dation, and corporate and lo-

KEY Moliterno said that
Ashworth's resignation was
for "personal and profes-
sional reasons." She added
70 that the chamber will be
posting notices for applica-
Hinson's tions and evaluating applica-
Hwy 90 tions for the position "soon."


to come to an agreement with
the Senate," Sansom agreed.
Previously Rubio had
proposed eliminating
property taxes altogether in
favor of local sales taxes to
fund city and county
governments, school districts
and services.
Due to opposition to that
plan by the Senate and
Governor Charlie Crist,
Rubio said it is now off the
table, at least for the time
being. However, he
commented that he still
believes a consumption tax is
still a fairer funding method
than taxing "the one place
that you call home."
Rubio said the situation is
such that legislators do not
have the "luxury" of debating
the benefits of sales tax
versus ad valorem, tax
funding, when an agreement
on cutting property taxes is
so close to being worked out.
"We're on the cusp of the
single biggest tax cut in
Florida's history," Rubio
proclaimed.
The new plan entails a
requirement for local
governments to roll back
their spending by reducing
their millage rate, along with
the state placing a statutory
cap on future revenue growth
for cities and counties.
Rubio noted that these
measures will provide tax
help for all properties,
homesteaded or not.
In addition, the current 25
percent exemption on
homesteaded property for tax
purposes would be
eliminated in favor of a tiered
system of "superexemptions"
ranging from 30 percent to 80

FROM FRONT


percent, based on the value
of the homesteaded property.
Where the existing
homestead exemption
procedure would provide
more tax benefit to a
homeowner, the owner would
be "grandfathered" under
that procedure as long as the
property remains under his
ownership.
For non-homesteaded
property, a flat exemption
would be set, Rubio
explained. Additional
exemptions would target
senior homeowners,
affordable housing, and
working waterfront
properties, he added.
Revenue rollbacks for
cities and counties would be
based on how much the local
government raised taxes over
the past few years, Rubio
commented. Governments
that have rolled back their
millage rates or kept them at
a reasonable level would be
affected less under the


proposal, Sansom noted.
Part of the plan would be
the possibility for local
government to override the
statutory spending cap.
However, Rubio explained,
not just a majority vote but a
supermajority vote of the
local government board
would be required.
Would taxpayers end up
paying the same costs in a
different form?Rubio
conceded that this might
happen, for example, through
local governments imposing
additional'user fees for
services or increasing
existing fees. However, he
said, procedures to do so
would involve the public
being notified and having a
choice as to whether or to
provide the additional
funding.
The legislators stated that
organizations such as the
Florida League of Cities and
the Florida Association of
Counties are fighting the tax


reform initiative by using
"scare tactics" and enlisting
the help of firefighters and
members of other
organizations that rely on ad
valorem tax funding.
While the argument is
being made that these
organizations would have to
cut out services if the
proposal succeeds, the
legislators countered that it
would be possible to exempt
these organizations from
being impacted, or that local
governments could provide
funding for them.
The legislators
commented that the st-ate
budget for the new fiscal year
has been reduced by $1
billion as compared with
2006-07. "The people cut our
revenue for us," Sansom
added, explaining that the
state is expecting to have $1.6
to $1.7 billion less in sales tax
revenues next year due to
reduced spending by the
public.
