Preservation of the-

Chautauqua Hall of

Brotherhood recognized


By LAKEN DA. 'IS
,Efforts to maintain and
,preserve the Chautauqua
Hall of Brotherhood,' which
is known to many simply as,
the 'Chautauqua building,
have been ongoing for about'
four months now, according,
toLarry Laird, director'of the
DeFuniak Springs Building
and Planning Department.A
recent celebration marked
completion of the project.
On Thursday, July 26, at
7 p.m., the city of DeFuniak
Springs held a rededicating
and lighting ceremony for the
Hall. The .event was held to
recognize the renovations
that have recently been done
to the building.
"It is an extremely impor-
tant and historic building for
the city," Laird said.
At the ceremony, DeFu-
niak Springs Mayor- C.
Harold Carpenter spoke, as
well as Victor Bowman, the
architect who drew plans for
the recent renovations. The'
Chautauqua Hall of Brother-
hood also gave a presentation
on the history of the building.
The Hall, which is located
above Lake DeFuniak was
constructed in 1909 as an
auditorium used to promote
the study of history, litera-
ture, music and art during
the Winter Chautauqua. In
the 1940s, the building was
remodeled to become a city
auditorium that housed
dances, basketball games,


high sch bol graduations. and
the Wes.t Florida Music Fes-
tival. Irl the 1970s, Hurri-
cane Eloise caine through the
area, destroying much of the
building's structure. Only the
front lohby remained. In the
mid 198.0s, the building was
renova ted. and took its
present form.
Currently, the building
houses .a branch of the Wal-
ton Cou!nty Chamber of Com-
merce and serves as a popu-
lar venue for wedding cer-
emonies,, reunions,. and other
celebrations. The building
has als( housed Walton High
Schoo1"s prom for several
years. It is an icon for the city.
The recent maintenance
efforts consisted of replacing
deteriorated siding with new
cypres,? siding, refurbishing
the columns and handrails,
replacing the gutters, and
other general repairs that in-
cluded! replacing flashing,
ca ulki iig, and window glass,
according to Laird. A contrac-
tor whp was hired by the city
did the maintenance work.
The total cost for the project
was about $300,000, Laird
said. Part of the funding for
the repairs came from a
grant from the state's His-
torical Preservation Board.
The rest of the money came
from matching funds from
the city, and the Hall of
Brotherhood itself, which
was ,supported by a grant

Creating a vision for DeFuniak Springs


By LAKEN DAVIS
Many DeFuniak Springs
*community members may
soon be taking photos of their
likes and dislikes in the area.
Recently, with the help of
the West Florida Regional
Planning Council (WFRPC),
and the Florida Department
of Community Affairs, DeFu-
niak Springs received a grant
to fund visioning and plan-
ning for the city. A public
workshop was held by the
city of DeFuniak Springs on
Monday, July 30 at 6:30 p.m.,
at City Hall, to receive pub-
lic input for the future image
of the city.
Bruce Stitt with WFRPC
led the meeting. He began by
defining the visioning pro-
cess. It is a process where city
officials and residents work
out a vision for the commu-
nity together, he explained.
Stitt identified four major
topics for discussion. The top-
ics, transportation, housing,
recreation, and economic de-
velopment, he said, were
identified at a previous meet-
ing of city council and staff
only.
Stitt than asked the audi-
ence to suggest names for the
visioning project. Several
ideas were discussed and af-
ter a vote, it was decided that
"Greater DeFuniak Springs:
Vision 2020" would be the
title. "It speaks to the future
and talks about more than
just the city limits," Stitt
said.
The next part of the meet-
ing consisted of the audience
listing the strengths of the
DeFuniak Springs area.
Each was written on a large
sheet of paper that was hung
on the wall. "Some strengths
listed were location,
volunteerism, small-town
character, potential to de-
velop, natural beauty, and
city and citizen leadership.

Councilman James Huffman said that he
would like to see a new city hall or a gov-
ernment office in the downtown area to at-
tract more traffic.


Councilman Don Harrison
said, "There is nothing to
keep DeFuniak Springs from
growing."
The next step was to list
the city's weaknesses, on the
list were lack of recognition
for the senior community, a
lack of infrastructure in in-
dustrial areas, housing,
transportation, the future
need for a bypass around the
city, and the future need for
sub-stations for the fire and
police departments.
Harrison said that the
DOT has plans for a bypass.
City Planniing Director Greg
Scoville mentioned that city
codes may need to be up-
dated. He said he has drafted,
some coding, regarding
signage.
The next step was to have
the audience! list opportuni-
ties of the city. Huffman said
that he would like to see a


new city hall or a govern-
ment office in the downtown
area to attract more traffic.
Local businessman Chuck
Lawson said that Fairhope,
AL., is an interesting city
that attracts people because
of its landscaping and
beauty. He said that DeFu-
niak Springs could easily put
hanging plants in its down-
town area and provide more
lighting and parking.
Lawson suggested a way to
pay for the changes would be
to add a small, voluntary fee
to water or electric bills.
One citizen said she would
like to have the Lakeyard
listed as a historic park.
There was also discussion of
creating an aquatic center for
the city. Harrison added that
creating a cultural-and-edu-
cational-based, coin mu n i ty
would create a greater sense
of place for the community.


AUDIENCE MEMBERS label the importance of various
strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats of DeFu-
niak Springs. I .


Hillard rioted that he would
like to see a program called
'Communities for a Lifetime'
be included as a component
of the vis ioning project.
Threats to the vision were
also mentioned. That list in-
cluded a loss of interest in the
project, competition from
other cities in attracting
business,) lack of a vision,
hurricanes, impact fees being
too small or too large, and
community members with an
anti-growth sentiment.
Harrison said that thpse op-
posing growth may fear los-
ing the integrity of the city.
However, he insisted, "We
can have tihe character of De-
Funiak Springs, as we know
it, and have growth as well."
The meeting concluded
with Stitt asking the audi-
ence to label the importance
of each individual strength,
. weakness, opportunity and
threat, by' putting a red,
green or bhlie dot beside the
issue. Red noted the most
important iEsue and blue the
least.
Upon leaving, each audi-
ence memb er was encour-
aged to tak-e two cameras
and label one as "like" and
the other as "dislike." They
were asked to take photos of
things they would like, or not
like, to see in DeFuniak
Springs. The photos could be
taken in DeFuniak Springs

Editor's Comment



Read all about it!
By RON KFLL LFY


I enjoy reading ne -spa--
pers. As often as I can, I read
newspapers from other
places. Whenever friends
travel, they usually bring
back a newspaper for me to
look over. It helps me to
know what other reporters
are writing and what their
readers think of it. I espe-
cially like to see the weekly
papers. Occasionally, I'll see
some feature or style that I
really like.
As you might guess,
whether it's a weekly or daily
paper, large or small, my fa-
vorite section is the editorial
page. I love the letters and I
enjoy reading what other
editors have to say about a
variety of topics.
Here's a sampling wh1- t
I found this week.
The South Florida Sun-
Sentinel tdiror talked about
protecting our food supply.
If the seemingly endless
ticker tape of warnings about
food imports from China
from toxic monkfish to
tainted toothpaste has your
stomach in knots, put down
that fork.


The Communist republic
isn't the only developing
country with a spotty record
for shipping unsafe food
products across American
borders. According to The
Associated Press, India and
Mexico run close behind,
with the second (1,787 ship-
ments) and-third (1,560)
largest numbers, respec-
tively, of imports rejected by
the U.S. Food and Drug Ad-
ministration over the past
year.
In all, the FDA kicked back
more than 15,000 imported
products in the past 12
months, finding many un-
approved, tainted or just
plain dirty.
With only enough money
and manpower to check less
than 1 percent of the 8.9 mil-
lion shipments imported
into the country every yea,;
the bigger question is,
what's getting through un-
detected to the American
dinner table?And that's not
even taking into account the
growing list of recalls of
American-made products.
Against this backdrop is


THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, AUGUST 2, 2007


the FDA's grand plan to reor-
ganize its testing program,
with proposals to close seven
of 13 of its laboratories.
Even its bid to modernize
operations with state-of-the art
robotics that would make test-
ing easier and more efficient
can't justify hacking its inven-
tory of testing sites in half Al-
ready, critics argue, many im-
porters deliberately evade in-
spection by shipping directly to
cities that don't have FDA
labs. Downsizing only prom-
ises to exacerbate that vulner-
ability.
Another concern: Some of
the labs slated to close have
specialized programs like the
food irradiation testing done
in Winchester, Mass. that are
unavailable elsewhere, accord-
ing to the Los Angeles Times.
We need to close holes in ser-
vice, not open new ones.
Americans are already wor-
ried about the safety of the
meal they're feeding their
families. Making them feel bet-
ter requires finding a way to
do more. If the FDA can't do
an adequate job with 13 test-
ing labs, how can it hope to
keep America's food supply
safe with just six?
Good question, but no good
answers. It seems like just an-
other short-sighted govern-
ment initiative, penny-wise
and pound-foolish.
Here's what the Gainesville
Sun had to say about the
Florida Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection setting
new guidelines and stiffer
penalties for corporate pollut-
ers:
In editorials past we fre-
quently, and unflatteringly, re-
ferred to Florida's Department
of Environmental Protection
as the "Department of Envi-
ronmental Accommodation."


That's because for much of its
history, DEP hasn't exactly
been known for cracking
down on polluters.
Indeed, during the Jeb
Bush years, DEP trod par-
ticularly lightly when it came
to penalizing major polluters.
Jeb's environmental "enforc-
ers" much preferred to "col-
laborate" with offending com-
panies, which seemed to us to
be political-speak for "let's not
offend any potential cam-
paign contributors."
But perhaps things are
changing in Tallahassee. Cer-
tainly Gov. Charlie Crist has
taken on a most un-Jeb-like
color of green with his recent
climate change summit and
ambitious emission control
and alternative energy initia-
tives. And now comes word
that DEP is going to start im-
posing stiffer fines and pen-
alties on major polluters.
"I had 16 years with DEP
before being tapped to lead
this agency, and I know the
penalties have not always
been a deterrent," Michael S.
Sole, DEP secretary, said re-
cently. "It is time to take the
next step. Taxpayers-do not
want a Florida where penal-
ties are 'just the cost of doing
business."'
DEP says it is rewriting its
penalty guidelines in major
enforcement cases involving
violations that are deemed
habitual, intentional and
cause significant environ-
mental harm over an ex-
tended period of time. Such
cases amount to about 10 per-
cent of the agency's violations.
The other 90 percent of viola-
tions are typically. subjected
to fines of $10,000 or less.
"Under the previous pen-
alty guidelines, most
multiday penalties utilized


the full amount only on the
first day," Sole explained, "a
30-day violation with a
$10,000 maximum penalty
per day might have resulted
in a $39,000 fine.
"Under the new guide-
lines, the recommended pen-
alty would be $10,000 a day
for 30 days, for a total of
$300,000 an increase of
nearly 770 percent."
Sole said DEP's stiffer
fines and penalties are in-
tended to emphasize that
"compliance with environ-
mental regulations is, bottom
line, better for business. It's
not only better for the state,
but for private industry as
well."
If DEP's intent really is to
convince corporate polluters
that the "cost of doing busi-
ness" as usual isn't worth it,
then stiffer fines and penal-
ties are indeed necessary. Too
often in the past, .the agency
has been a toothless watch-
dog when it came to protect-
ing Florida's natural envi-
ronment. But perhaps the old
"Department ofEnvironmen-
tal Accommodation" really
has gone away for good.
Finally, the Daytona
News-Journal had this to say
about Secretary of State
Condoleezza Rice.
Two years ago this week,
Condoleezza Rice was before
the Senate Foreign Relations
committee, seeking confirma-
tion as secretary of state. By
then, 1,366 American sol-
diers had died in Iraq,
10,300 had been wounded
and 58 percent of Americans
disapproved of President
Bush's handling of the war.
Iraq had been the principal
issue'of the presidential elec-
tion two months before, when
a record 137Americans were


killed. In her 3,700-word
opening statement to the Sen-
ate committee, Rice not once
mentioned the casualties. Nor
did she mention the Iraq war
Her only references to war,
other than plugging Pakistan
as "a vital ally in the war on
terror" (she calls Pakistan's
dictator, Pervez Musharraf, "a
good friend") had to do with
World War II and the Cold
War. She was not only in a
time-warp. She was in an
empathy warp.

Publicly, Rice has shown
more emotion about Brahms'
second piano concerto, which
she's promised herself to
learn "before I leave this
Earth," than she has about
her own and her employer's
mistakes, which now have the
United States fighting th"ee
losing wars in Iraq, in Af-
ghanistan, on "terror"- and
winning only one: the domes-
tic one on liberties. As a na-
tional security adviser, Rice,
an old Chevron director who
once had an oil tanker named
after her, was the pipeline
through which the greased
machinations for serially
failing strategies made it to
the president's ears. "Con-
stantly mother-henning me,"
is how Bush once described
that role. As a secretary of
state, Rice has been the fre-
quent flier to nowhere. Every
one of the foreign-policy hot
spots she inherited North
Korea, Iran, Israel and Pal-
estine, Lebanon, Iraq, the
Horn ofAfrica is in worse
shape today than in 2005,
when things were bad
enough. As a member of the
Bush administration, she's
been a perfect fit.


Letters to the Editor


Editor:
I am writing in response to Mayor Carpenter's recent re-
quest for comments regarding the copper drain pipes on
the Chautauqua Building. I can only say that I almost ran
my car off the street last week when I first beheld this spec-
tacle. I do not claim to be an aesthete, but this display, clash-
ing as it does with the dignified white of the building, set
what small artistic sense I may possess scurrying for cover.
I hear that the copper was recommended by the archi-
tect. One wonders if any attempt was made by those re-
sponsible to determine what the drains looked like origi-
nally. Even if they were copper, I should think that com-
mon sense and good taste would dictate some accommoda-
tion that would be more in keeping with present-day tastes.
Another consideration is the high cost of copper today -
so expensive that people are stealing it everywhere to sell
as scrap metal. If the pipes were white, in keeping with the
rest of the building, they could have been made of far less
expensive material and would have served just as well. Also,
the bright copper will soon tarnish to a splotchy, sickly green
hue, and we can all imagine what that will look like.
It is probably not feasible to replace the copper, consider-
ing the money already spent on it, but it could certainly be
painted white before the inevitable corrosion sets in.
Perhaps this may be considered a small matter compared
to the major matters facing the city, such as finally doing
something about the abominable condition of some of our
streets (11th Street, Bay Avenue, Bruce Avenue, etc., etc.)
four-laning and bypassing U.S. 331, planning for future in-
frastructure needs and a myriad other concerns, but the
drains are a matter that we can do something about, and
we can do it right now.
Thank you for consideration of the citizenry by asking
for input about this matter.
Sincerely,
Keith Rowland

Editor:
When citizens of Walton County call 911, are all patrons
receiving the same level of service? Does if make sense that
when a human life is on the line we receive assistance from
untrained and unqualified indi viduals.lYherr. e liiep-in a soci-
ety where professional athletes, polite icians, and actori- make
billions of dollars annually?
Personally when a member of my family is in a true need
of care, I want the highest-trained, highest-educated, most
skilled person to attend to my immediate family. How can
anyone put a price on human life?
In the past when population was scattered throughout
Walton County and funding was slim to none, the citizens
had to depend on any assistance they could get to help them
in their time of need. But in today's society, with population'
growing daily, it is necessary for trained professionals to be
available to answer the call when someone dials 911.
The state of Florida issues a "minimum standards" to
firefighters who receive specific training. This is the bare mini-
mum state requirement to function on a fire scene.
Firefighters who receive the state "minimum standards" train
on effective firefighting skills to include fire growth patterns,
concepts on the proper way to extinguish and not enhance
the fire, tools and equipment, medical emergencies, and scene
management to name a few. Once again this is a "minimum
standard." The true learning comes with time and training
on a regular weekly basis.
There are several small communities that still utilize vol-
unteers to respond when 911 is called. Some volunteers are
in it for the right reason, to learn and advance and ascertain
their certification. The citizens cannot depend on these vol-
unteers to be available all the time. Volunteers still have their
normal jobs to report to during normal business hours all
week long. They have to watch their kids. They may be under
the influence after a family gathering, or simply just out of
district on personal business. Depending on volunteers only
is too much to ask. There definitely is a need for volunteers




V *


and that is to supplement the on-duty crews and build on
the foundation to enhance their skills.
So ask yourself, "Am I safe in my community if I dial 911?
Are the people responding trained to help, not hinder, my
situation? Why are volunteers against the idea.of profes-
sfonal firefighters? Are volunteers against"prdfessionaill
firefighters in this for the right reasons?"
Being a firefighter is an extremely dangerous job and
those who are in it for the right reasons receive the training
and continue that training on a continuous basis.

Editor,
SeaBlaster rocks the turtle's world.
For the second time in a week, as reported by those work-
ing aboard the SeaBlaster, they have struck a turtle. This
happened this week with a boatload of elementary school
age children aboard and they had to stop the boat for a few
minutes while a fellow went over the side to cut the turtle
free (one has to wonder if this meant cutting 'through' the
turtle?).
,The operator of the boat sought to reassure the children
that all was well by telling them that "this happens. We had
to do the same thing last week."
This makes one wonder exactly how many turtles are be-
ing killed out there that we never hear about. This time there
was a boat load of young, honest, caring witnesses.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, AUGUST 2, 2007

Tax-free week to attract shoppers

(This year's break: August 4 through August 13)


By LAKEN DAVIS
As summer comes to an
end, tourists head home, lo-
cals make that one last trip
to the beach, and the 2007-
2008 school year approaches.
Part of the preparation for
the journey back to school in-
cludes purchasing new cloth-
ing, shoes, and school sup-
plies. Fortunately, for Florid-
ians, the state has approved
the 2007 sales-tax break.
This year's tax-free week is
scheduled for August 4
through August 13. No sales
tax or local option taxes will
be collected on the sales of
certain school supplies,
books, clothing, footwear,


and accessories.
Chris Willcox, store man-
ager of the DeFuniak
Springs Wal-Mart Super cen-
ter, said he is expecting a
large customer turnout for
this year's tax-free week. He
has been with Wal-Mart for
about 13 years and has
worked through the tax-free
week since its beginning. "I
think we will have a better-
than-normal year," Willcox
said.
He added that the first
two to three days of the week
are always the busiest. He
said that prices have gone up
for everything lately, gas as
one example, and that people
want to save money. He said
that overall, the sales-tax
break is beneficial for both


the store and the community.
Willcox said he recently
read an article that reported
that the average family
spends $200 to $300 per
child, per year on school sup-
plies and clothing. He said
that many families in the De-
Funiak Springs area have
three to four children and
could end up spending $1,000
for school preparation. He
said that taking advantage of
the sales-tax break could
save families about $20 on
each child's purchases. If a
family has five children, that
is a total savings of $100.
Willcox added that the
store's fashion apparel has
become more kid-oriented
and that it agrees with local
school dress codes.


The sales tax exemption
applies to books or items of
clothing that cost $50 or less
and school-supply items that
cost $10 or less, according to
a Florida Department of Rev-
enue tax-information publi-
cation. The exemption ap-
plies no matter how many
items are sold on the same
invoice to a customer.
Mendy Morrison, a DeFu-
niak Springs resident, will be
school-supply shopping for
three children this year. She
said she usually waits for the
tax-free week to make her
Purchases. "You do save quite
a bit of money," she said.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD. THURSDAY.AUGUST 2. 2007


DeFuniak wastewater treatment


company wins two state awards


By REID TUL' '*El?
Since early 2003, CH2M
HILL OMI has been operate
ing and managing the water
and wastewater treatment
facilities, wells, and lift sta-
tions of DeFuniak Springs,
and before that, the company
held local contracts with the
municipalities of Crestview
and Mary Esther. They've
been busy in the meantime,
winning major state-level
awards from 2004 on, win-
ning the Florida Rural Wa-
ter Association Wastewater
i.,, ili \ of the year and opera-
tor of the year awards in
2i..6, culminating in their
most recent big achievement,
the 2007 Florida Water En-
vironment Association Safety
Award, to be presented to the
mayor in August.
Winning awards of this
magnitude is nothing new for
CH2M HILL OMI. In 2004
they won an award from the
Florida Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection
(FDEP) for operations excel-
lence coupled with numerous
awards resulting from their
lack of compliance issues.
"Our ability to exceed the
city's expectations is very
important to me," Swift said.
"We really emphasize safety
and quality. Our awards vali-
date the quality of our work.
They speak for themselves."
"We run entire cities now,"
said Jayne Swift, OMI's gen-
eral manager, on the recent
development wherein CH2M
HILL completely manages
three full cities in Georgia.
"We're pretty busy these
days.",


The employee-owned cor-
poration, based in Denver,
Colorado, has 11 different
corporate offices across the
country, with the southeast-
ern regional headquarters in
Orlando. "We have a very
strong presence in Florida,"
said communications official
Susan Mays, with major of-
fices in Gainesville and, lo-
cally, in Navarre and
Crestview. The local OMI
division employs 1,600 of the
corporation's 19,000 employ-
ees worldwide.
The corporation at the in-
ternational and local level
isn't strictly water and
wastewater treatment, ei-
ther: CH2M HILL is heavily
involved in engineering
projects, construction, trans-
portation and, in some cases,
the company handles the
complicated process of
nuclear cleanup.
Since 2002, OMI has been
involved in a lengthy
backflow prevention pro-
gram at the local level, which
has had, according to Swift,
"a huge impact" on the oppor-
tunities for employment.
This had led into several
more issues to be corrected in
order to prevent problems
springing up from backflow
problems, such as issues
with individual lift stations,
and the occasional overload-
ing and blowing of compo-
nents. Backflow prevention
exists as a major concern for
OMI, because maintaining
control of backflow prevents
sewage spills and, ultimately,
costs to the city. Swift in-
sisted that "quality would


remain very important" to
her operation.
Since coming to DeFu-
niak, CH2M HILL OMI has
been hard at work revamp-
ing the water treatment fa-
cilities of the city. The com-
pany has worked in conjunc-
tion with city staff to repair
well structures and install
new electric-start breakers,
new grit removal systems
from drinking water. They
have also replaced all the gas
and chlorine iubing and fit-
tings in city wells and in-
stalled new influent pumps
at the wastewater facilities.
Newly prepared for the
fall, OMI plans to institute
and education program
aimed at "educating people
in layman's terms," Swift
said. The program will focus
on how the general popula-
tion, through water conser-
vation practices and other
measures can make the job
of those involved in water
and wastewater manage-
ment easier and more afford-
able for the public.
However, something
unlocked for in future events
was the sudden explosion of
growth in the city and sur-
rounding areas. This im-
pending growth means new
plants and facilities to be
constructed. The greater
challenge is proving to be
finding enough people to
staff all the openings in po-
sitions across the board. Re-
cruitment is now becoming a
major effort of not only
CH2M HILL OMI, but the.
entire water and wastewater
management industry


throughout the country.
The problem, explained
Paul Prutch, communica-
tions staff member with
CH2M HILL OMI headquar-
ters in Denver, Colorado,
comes from the fact that
many people simply aren't
aware of the jobs in the first
place. Prutch said, "People
don't really think this job ex-
ists." He continued that
many were concerned only
about flushing a toilet or
turning on a faucet and not
really thinking about "where
the water comes from." Re-
cruitment and education pro-
grams will now go hand in
hand at high school job fairs,
Prutch said. Swift agreed,
saying that these new edu-
cation programs "just might
get us a few phone calls."
Another reason for the
countrywide shortage of wa-
ter management workers is
that the industry is ap-
proaching a time frame when
a large number of workers
will be retiring, Mays ex-
plained. The silver lining
around the situation is that
a great number of jobs for
younger people will become
available shortly because,
even now, Swift said, "there
aren't enough workers to
meet the needs of [all] the
customers."
Further complicating mat-
ters is the non-standardized
nature of testing and train-
ing that is involved in pre-'
paring potential workers in
the water management in-
dustry. That is, as Mays ex-
plained, "operator practices
are not standard across the

country," and that qualifica-
tions and licences don't al-
ways carry across states
lines. It's a problem that
Swift herself has encoun-
tered in moves around the
country. "It's really a bit of a
problem," Mays said.

Swift wanted to empha-
size that the staff of the De-


Funiak Springs branch of
CH2M HILL OMI were "the
ones behind the awards," giv-
ing special recognition to
lead operator Mike Bowling,
operator Nick Ramos, and re-
gional operator Harold
McCorkle. "They work hard
every day," Swift said, pro-
viding the vital services to
local residents.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY,AUGUST 2, 2007

Missing children found


On July 26, the Walton
County Sheriff's' Office
(WCSO) found two young
children that had been re-
ported missing seven hours
earlier. Just after midnight
on that date, the WCSO dis-
patch received an emergency
call to report that two young
boys, ages 10 and 11, were
missing on the Sandestin


Golf and Beach
Resort. Deputies responded
to the scene to gather infor-
mation and begin the
search.
The WCSO beach patrol
unit patrolled the beach
while the aviation unit
scanned areas from
above. After completing their
10-hour shifts, many depu-


ties stayed on, searching the
immediate resort area, other
nearby resorts and hotels,
and the local neighborhoods,
looking for the missing
boys. Further assistance was
provided by several of the
area's private security agen-
cies.
After over seven hours of
searching, the boys were dis-
covered sleeping a different


room, not assigned to the
family. It appears that at
some point they became
separated from their par-
ents. Not knowing where to


go, they attempted to go back
to their family's room'. They
somehow gained access to
another room and fell asleep
while waiting for their par-


PAGE 9-A
ents.
At around 8 a.m. on July
26, they were discovered and
reunited with their parents.
Both were unharmed.

Stroke and
osteoporosis
screening coming
to DFS August 15
Residents living in and
around the DeFuniak
Springs community can be
screened to reduce their risk
of having a stroke. Life Line
Screening will be at the De-
Funiak Springs Community
Center on August 15. The
site is located at 361 North
10th Street in DeFuniak
Spring. Appointments will
begin at 9 a.m.
Screenings are fast, pain-
less and low cost. They in-
volve the use of ultrasound
technology, and scan for po-
tential health problems re-
lated to blocked arteries
which can lead to a stroke,
aortic aneurysms which can
lead to a ruptured aorta, and
hardening of the arteries in
the legs, which are a strong
predictor of heart disease. A
bone density screening to as-
sess osteoporosis risk is also
offered and is appropriate for
both men and women.
All four screenings take
less than an hour to com-
plete. The cost for a Wellness
Package of all four screen-
ings (including free os-
teoporosis screening) is $129.
For. more information re-
garding the screenings or to
schedule an appointment,

Promoting health in Walton County


By LAKEN DAVIS
According to a report from
the Florida Department of
Health, 73.5 percent of Wal-
ton County residents do not
consume the recommended
amounts of fruits and veg-
etables. This statistic was
surprising to Shaneika
McKenzie, senior health edu-
cator with the Walton
County Health Department
(WCHD). McKenzie is part of
a group that is on a mission
to improve the health of
those in the Walton County
area.
She works with the Wal-
ton County Community
Health Improvement Part-
nership (WCCHIP), which is
a collaborative health system
that includes health provid-
ers, local government and
concerned citizens. The
group's goal is to promote
wellness and a healthy envi-
ronment for all residents and


visitors in Walton County.
McKenzie has drafted a
Walton County Health Pro-
file Report. The report in-
cludes statistics that show
the overall health of Walton
County's" residents, and
many health-related statis-
tics of Walton County com-
pared to those of the state.
An example of the informa-
tion in the report is a com-
parison of the number of spe-
cialized health-care provid-
ers in the county to provid-
ers in the state. In 2005, for
every 100,000 citizens in
Walton County, there were
1.8 licensed OB/GYNs. For
every 100,000 citizens in the
state, there were 9.5 OB/
GNYs. However, there are
fewer than 100,000 residents
in Walton County. The num-
ber is close to 50,000. Much
of the information in the re-
port is based on statistics
from www.Florida


Charts.com.
"In writing this, there
were some surprising num-
bers," McKenzie said. How-
ever, she added, "In a lot of
these areas, we did better
than the state."
McKenzie said she hopes
the report will help to iden-
tify the areas related to
health in Walton County that
need improvement and bring
the community together to
make those improvements
and make Walton County a
healthy place.
The drafted report was
presented on Friday, July 27,
at a meeting of the WCCHIP
from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. at
McLain's Family Steakhouse
in DeFuniak Springs.
The partnership met to
discuss the county's health
status. The meeting con-
sisted of a welcoming, a pre-
sentation of community
themes and strengths, an


overview of the drafted re-
port on the health status of
the county, and a recap of the
progress of the WCCHIP.
In attendance were offi-
cials from the WCHD, the
Council on Aging, and the
Northwest Florida Agency on
Aging and Aging Resource
Center.
Donna Arnold, a tobacco
prevention specialist with
the WCHD, said, "The meet-
ings give everyone a chance
to come together."
She said that because of-
ficials from different agen-
cies are present, they are
aware of individual progress
and do not duplicate projects.
She added that some agen-
cies might not have money to
do evaluations and gather
the data that the partnership
is able to do.
The tentative date for the
partnership's next meeting is
August 17 from 12 p.m. to 1
p.m. at McLain's Family
Steakhouse. The Walton
County Health Profile Re-
port will be available to the
public within the next month
on the Walton County Health
Department's Web site.

Carpenter said the cer-
emony went well. "I thought
it was excellent," Carpenter
said. He said the building is
important because it is part
of the city's history. Carpen-
ter added that his high school
graduation ceremony took
place in the building. His
class, the class of 1955, was
the last to graduate in the
Hall. He said the best part of
the recent lighting ceremony
was the lighting of the
building's lantern. "I hope
the citizens of DeFuniak
Springs can enjoy that for
years to come," he said.
However, at the July 23
City Council meeting, Car-
penter said he does not like


the copper gutters and
spouts that have been placed
on the building. "I think it
takes away from the look of
the building," he said. "The
gutters are in the wrong
place."
At the meeting, City Man-
ager Kim Kirby replied say-
ing that the copper gutters
were put on because of rec-
ommendations from the ar-
chitect who drew the plans
for the recent renovations.
She said she was told that
copper is what would have
been used at the time of the
building's construction.
Carpenter has asked for
input from the public regard-
ing the gutters.

The Child Advocate


By Julie Hurst, director
Children's Advocacy Center
It's already the end of July.
How the summer months are
flying by. My son keeps
asking how many days does
he have left before school
starts. My reply is plenty as
the children don't start back
until August 20. They will
have had a long hot summer.
Speaking of hot, it is
incredibly warm outside and
probably will be for the
remainder of the summer
into early fall. Summer are
meant to be fun, but along
with the fun. can come
danger.
The Emerald Coast
Children's Advocacy Center
would like to take this
opportunity to share some
summertime tips to help keep
your children safe.
According to SAFE KIDS,
an average of 25 children die
in the U.S. each year as a
result of being left in a car on
a warm day. According to
www.parents.com when the
temperature outside is 93 F
inside a car can reach 125 F
in under 20 minutes, even
with the window cracked. A


child's body temperature will.
increase three to five times
faster than that of an adult
resulting in a heat stroke or
heat exhaustion. Heat stroke,
which occurs in only minutes,
can cause permanent
disability or even death. If a
child gets locked in a car, call
911 immeidately.
Anyone can be at the risk
for drowning. However,
children four years old and
under are particularly
vulnerable and account for
over 300 drowning deaths
each year in the United
States.,
Practice the ABC's of
Water Safety: Adult
supervision. Adults-need to
have eye to eye contact with
children around all forms of
water (including pools,
bathtubs, buckets, beaches
and ponds) at all times.
With the use of barriers,
parents can add layers of
protection. Barriers include
fences, alarms, 'door locks
that out of reach of children,
self-latching hardware on
doors and fences.
Adult CPR Classes can
help prepare you for an


emergency and often make
the difference between life
and death when a child is in
danger of drowning. Children
(at the appropriate age) can
take aquatic classes to help
them gain swimming and
water safety skills.
Regardless of a child's age,
they are never too young to
learn water-safety rules and
habits. Just as you would
teach them to look both ways
before they cross they street,
teach them to stay away from
water when an adult is not
watching them. Around
pools, adults can keep toys
and other items that a child
may be interested in away
from the pool or water area.
Keep rescue equipment, such
as a safety ring, near the
poolside. If possible, place a
phone near the pool for
emergencies.
Practicing the above safety
tips will help sure a safe,
happy summer for all. In
closing, as always I must
remind everyone that if they
know of or suspect child
abuse, please contact the
Florida Abuse Hotline at 1-
800-96-ABUSE.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, AUGUST 2, 2007


Sign-stealing pranks no laughing matter


By DOTTY NIST
Walton County commis-
sioners are finding nothing
funny about the recent theft
of over 30 street signs plus
two stop signs from Coy Bur-
gess Loop in District 4.
District 4 Commissioner
Sara Comander brought up
the matter on July 24 at the
Walton County Board of
County Commissioners regu-


IMPACT FIE
study at a later time.
Currently, the police de-
partment does not maintain
the type of record that
catrgorizes commercial busi-
nesses, said Capt. Mark
Weeks, of the DeFuniak
Springs Police Department.
The only way to figure it out
would be to manually go back
and review every call, he
said.
Councilman James E.
Coffield said the department
could start now and keep the
records on a day-to-day ba-
sis.
Harrison said the depart-
ment could break down com-
mercial call-outs into.five or
six general business catego-
ries and that the department
could record the category
that each commercial call
falls under.
Weeks said it would be dif-
ficult to record them indi-
vidually, but that it could be
done.
Councilman Henry D.
Ennis said he doesn't see
where it makes a difference.
He said he has trouble see-
ing why it should be broken
.down. "The overall picture is
what counts," Ennis said.
"It's going to be a nightmare


lar meeting in DeFuniak
Springs. It is unknown at
this time who removed the
signs.
Comander noted that it
costs taxpayers hundreds of
dollars to replace each sign,
when materials, time and la-
bor for replacement are
taken into account.
She added that injury or
death can result from a miss-


ing stop sign, and that emer-
gency personnel can be de-
layed or prevented from re-
sponding to an emergency
due to a missing road sign.
According to Florida Stat-
utes section 806.13, such
thefts amount to a third-de-
gree felony. Manslaughter
charges have been brought
by the state in instances
when motorist death has fol-


lowed the removal of signs.
District 1 Commissioner
Scott Brannon said he be-
lieved signs had been stolen
from roads in his district as
well.
County Administrator
Ronnie Bell said that county
staff would proceed to press
charges against any parties
identified in connection with
the removal of the signs.

trying to figure this out."
Adkinson said each study
costs close to $30,000.
Harrison said he would like
to look at a smaller percent-
age for the ordinance now,
and a year from now, do an-
other study to make any
needed amendments.
A motion was called for a
50 percent version of the fee
to be looked at. The motion
passed, four to one, with
Harrison opposing. After the
meeting he said he wanted to
look into the 25 percent ver-
sion of the fee.
Harrison motioned to set
up a system for
catigorization with police de-
partment. The motion
passed.
The first reading of two
ordinances concerning regis-
tered sexual offenders was
held. The first ordinance
would prohibit sexual offend-
ers from living within 2,000
feet of specified locations, in-
cluding schools, day cares,
parks, and other areas where'
children regularly congre-
gate. The second ordinance
would prevent registered
sexual offenders from enter-
ing city parks.
Harrison had a question


regarding Chipley Park, lo-
cated inside the DeFuniak
Springs Lakeyard. Within
the park is the Presbyterian
Church and a public library.
Adkinson said to put an ex-
ception in the ordinance for
any person in Chipley Park
to be able to use the library
or Presbyterian church, to
not exclude sexual offenders
from attending church ser-
vices. The exceptions will be
included in the next review
of the ordinance.
A motion concerning issu-
inrg a credit card to the city
marshall for department use
passed.
A motion to make the
Mayor Harold C. Carpenter
a voting delegate for the
Florida League of Cities an-
nual conference passed.
Harrision made a motion to
amend the previous motion,
and to put Huffman as an
alternate voting delegate.
The motion passed.
Kirby presented the 2007-
2008 city strategic objectives.
Huffman said the list has
been narrowed down to be a
workable amount.
Kirby also presented a list
of updated city job
descriptions. She noted that


Boston butt blowout fundraiser set


Larry Laird, director of the
city's Building and Planning
Department worked to put
the job-discription list to-
gether. Kirby said all of the
descriptions need to be up-
dated, but that it is quite a
task and they will be done a
few at a time.
In her city manager's re-
port, Kirby invited the coun-
cil and public to a rededicat-
ion ceremony of the
Chautauqua Hall of Brother-
hood on Thursday at 7 p.m.
In his council comments,
Huffman noted that he and
Kirby have been looking into
providing a water-recreation
facility for the city.
The meeting concluded
with Carpenter's comments
on the newly-placed copper
gutters and spouts on the
Chautauqua Hall of Brother-
hood. He encouraged the
council members and the
public to go by and take a
look at them. He stated that
he wants to go on the record
saying that he doesn't like
the copper and that he wants
to hear from the.citizens
"I think it takes away from
the look of the building," Car-
penter said. "The gutters are
in the wrong place."
However, Kirby said the
copper gutters were put on
because of the current
architect's recommendations
because it'is what would
have been used originally.

The Man of the Mountains


AUTHOR HORACE
KEPHART was a visionary
naturalist and conser-
vationist.


By JEFFREY POWELL

Few places on earth
evoke the feelings of maj-
esty surrounding the
Smoky Mountains of west-
ern North Carolina and
eastern Tennessee. For
eons, Native American peo-
ples marveled at the rich
diversity of beauty and
natural resources of the
area. Many years later, a
naturalist and librarian
named Horace Kephart,
suffering from what we
might call today a mid-life
crisis, discovered the
Smokies for himself and
left a lasting impression
that continues to this day.
Horace Sowers Kephart
was born in East Salem
Pennsylvania in 1862.
Shortly thereafter, his fam-
ily moved to the sweeping
grasslands of Iowa. It is,
believed that Kephart nur--
tured his love for the out-
doors here and he would

spend endless hours roam-
ing the plains in solitude.
The experience of spending
so much time 'outdoors
alone developed into a rela-
tionship with the natural
world few others under-
stood.
Kephart later attended
Lebanon Valley Collage and
Boston University. Shortly
thereafter he landed a posi-
tion as head librarian at
Cornell University.
Afterwards he accepted a
position at Yale University
and married. After having
six children the Kephart's
marriage was in trouble for
reasons that are unclear.
Kephart also had health
problems probably result-
ing from an above average
desire for alcohol. As a rem-
edy to these problems
Kephart decided to head to
the mountains.
In 1904, Kephart arrived
in Dillsboro, North
Carolina, living first in a


i7


tent then a tiny log cabin.
He found this way of life
favorable and was able to
recover from his alcohol
problems. For the rest of
his life Kephart would call
this part of the nation
home. During the next 27
years, Kephart wrote sev-
eral books the most notable
being Our Southern
Highlander. He also wrote
camping and woodcraft
which many organizations
such as the Boy Scouts of
America use to this day to
teach survival techniques.


Both of these books are still
in print.
While in the Smokies,
Kephart was witness to
massive deforestation and
decided that something had
to be done. He published
numerous articles and even
made a trip to Washington,
D.C. to lobby for protection
of the area. As a result of
these efforts and the efforts
of others the Great Smoky
Mountain National Park
(GSMNP) came into being.
The GSMNP is the most
visited national park in the


nation. Kephart was also
instrumental in getting the
southern portion of the
Appalachian Trail estab-
lished.

Tragically, Kephart w4s
killed in a traffic accidehit
on the appropriately name:
Dead Man's Curve while a
passenger heading t6
Bryson City. He was buried
in Bryson overlooking the
town and the foothills 4'f
the Smokies. His headstone
is a simple granite boulder
befitting his simple nature.;

Drive.


Come to the farm
Chautauqua Rehabilita-
tion and Nursing Center Day
Program Director Connie
Baldwin, co-worker Irma
White and volunteer Chris-
tine McCaskill, with five of
their residents, went to Ar-
gyle Acres Farm, Tuesday,
July 10. The residents were
greeted by owner Dual Odom
and Quigley, the dog.
The weather was hot.
Some residents took cover-
from the heat to chairs un-
der the oak trees. Others
walked with Odom to see the
many cows in the pasture.
The other residents fol-
lowed Odom to see his gold-
fish. Odom talked about why
he kept goldfish in the wa-
ter for the cows to drink. He
explained that sanitation is
important, and goldfish help
keep down bacterial growth,
so the cows won't get sick.
After seeing and learning
about the animals, the resi-
dents saw a giant John
Deere tractor. One by one,
they climbed up the tractor
and had a picture taken. The
ladies seemed to forget all
about their aches and pains
and enjoyed every moment of
it.
After all that, all five resi-
dents sat under the oak trees
with Quigley, the dog, and
Odom told them a story
about his cows.
When it was time to leave,
Odom brought out some
home-made chocolate cook-
ies baked by his wife, Pat.
The residents thanked him
and shook his hand as they
left.


After the farm trip, the
residents were treated to
lunch at McDonald's. One
resident, Willie Mae Beck,
said, "lets not be in a rush
getting back", and laughed
with a big smile.
Later Baldwin said, "this
truly enhances the quality of
our residents' lives. Seeing
them laugh and talk and
have a bit of freedom back
into their lives are the key
elements to living."

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, AUGUST 2, 2007


PAGE 4B


In Judges 14:14, we find
Samson putting forth a
riddle to the people of
Timnath of the country of
the Philistines. He had once
killed a lion, then found a
bee hive in the carcass. Part
of his riddle was, "Out of the
eater came forth meat."
Meat is a Middle English
word for "food," not always
meaning "flesh." Good
comes out of seeming bad.
Even Satan's ill-intent may
be heaven sent.


Grace can come from a
thorn in the flesh (2
Corinthians 12:7). Grace
would not have been so
highly appreciated if Paul
was not so hard pressed.
Scouring paper may be
rough, but it removes the
rust and brightens an object
as well.
A pillow of comfort was
found in a pillar of stone for
Jacob (Genesis 28:16-22). It
was a hard pillow the man
had when his head rested on


a pillar, but it led to the
Bethel of heaven's stairway.
Once prison food led to the
feast in the king's palace
(Genesis 40:20). Pharaoh
placed the once imprisoned
chief butler at the feast, and
killed the chief baker. Re-
membering Joseph later on,
the butler told Pharaoh of
him, and he, too, was re-
leased.
One person wanted to eat
hog's food, but was later to
eat of the fatted calf (Luke


By DR. ROBERT M. JAYE


15-23). The calf of the
father's home was the more
appreciated because of the
felt desire to eat husks in
the far country for the
prodigal son.
Has something bad hap-
pened in your life or family?
Good can come out of that
which seems so bad and
heartbreaking. Bring for the
rejoicing when you see what
the Lord God can do in what
seems like a horrible situa-
tion. Trust in the Lord.

Recovery is possible
By CHARITY PARKER
Special Projects Coordinator
COPE Center, Inc.,


What would it feel like to
live life in fear? Fear of be-
ing rejected by folks you meet
on the street and in the gro-
cery store or your own family
is afraid of you and if that
was not bad enough, you have
these pesky voices running
loose in your head day after
day. Fear that your disabil-
ity causes others to discount
your ability to be a productive
part of the community. Many
people with mental illness
struggle with these types of
fears every day. Mental ill-
nesses affect one in four of us
at some point in our lives.
This means we have at least
one relative, friend, neighbor
or co-worker living with a
mental illness and it is just
as common as heart disease.
Like President Bush said,
"Americans must understand
and send this message: men-
tal disability is not a scandal
- it is an illness. And like
physical illness, it is treat-
able." No one is "immune"
from mental illness no mat-
ter your age, race, religion,
income or education level, but
if you have a mental illness
you can recover. Recovery is
possible. Only half of people
treated for heart disease re-
cover, where eight out of ten
of folks treated for depression
recover.
As a community we need to

come together to get rid of
this notion that you can't re-
cover from depression,
schizophrenia, anxiety disor-
ders, obsessions, phobias or
other mental illnesses. We
believe you can recover from
alcoholism or diabetes, but
fail to give someone with a
mental illness the same
hope?
Just like tre a ,,. '.. for any
physical illnesses or addic-
tion, there are medications to
take, activities to avoid and
'steps to take toward recovery
and resiliency. For example,
if you are diabetic you may
find it hard to stay away from
sweets, but this is a life
change you must make in or-
der to recover. Whether you
have a physical illness or a
mental illness all you want
is to get well.
The first step is for our
community to make mental
health a priority by changing
our own personal attitudes,
dispelling myths about men-
tal illness, and making men-r
tal wellness, along with
physical wellness, a part of
our every day lives.

'learning by doing"

The same Bible story con-

a new workshop each week.
These new workshops include

the workshop leaders teaches


through a different style of
learning, the kids don't get

Emotional eating causes and cures


In an ideal world, people
would all eat only when
they're hungry and stop when
they're full. In the real world,
we often eat for reasons other
than hunger.
"When situations trigger
eating in a person who is not
hungry, that practice is con-
sidered emotional eating,"
says Chuckie Merrill, a rep-
resentative of TOPS (Take
Off Pounds Sensibly), a non-
profit weight-loss support or-
ganization. "The person con-
sumes large quantities of
food--often 'comfort foods'
high in fat and sugar-in re-
sponse to an emotional situ-
ation," she adds.

posed to carry the headline:

The mistake was discov-

made for the afternoon edi-

Merrill points out some
common triggers for emo-
tional eating:
Anger at oneself of an-
other person; instead of con-
fronting the source of the
anger, the person tries to
release anger by eating.
Boredom and feeling
lonely can push an indi-
vidual to seek comfort and
.food.
Feeling unappreciated or
out of control may drive an
individual to overeat.
How to curb emotional
eating? The first step is to
recognize a habit of eating
in response to emotion
rather than genuine hunger.

God has done everything in
His power to keep you from
it. He put His Son on the
cross.

Why don't you choose His
Son and heaven today?


Merrill recommends keep-
ing a food diary that lists
what was eaten, when and
why noting the situation
and emotions that pre-
ceded the binge.
Next, choose a construc-
tive method of dealing
with these feelings. For ex-
ample, an angry person
might vent feelings by
writing them down, talk-
ing with a sympathetic lis-
tener, and releasing stress
through exercise. Deep..-
breathing exercise can
also help to clear one's
mind and break the link
between emotion and an
automatic eating re-


sponse.

DeFuniak All-Stars fall in state semifinals


SBy PATRICK CASEY
The DeFuniak Springs
-All-Stars managed only one
'hit as North Palm Beach
-ended the squad's run in the
Little League State Tourna-
,ment in Tallahassee with a
5-0 victory in one of two state
,semifinal contests. The
squad, composed of 11- and
'12-year-old players, made
,:one of the deepest playoff
:'runs in Walton County his-
tory in Little League compe-
tition.
North Palm Beach's
Shane Bickel struck out 15
batters and allowed only two
"base-runners over six in-
nings of work to earn the
"complete game victory and
Propel NPB into the champi-
,onship game a.:tinst Semi-
'nole.
DeFuniak's bats remained
"silent as they recorded only
six hits in their final three
,games over 18 innings. Zach
:Burgess had a double in the
,fifth inning for the squad's
Only hit and Zach Forehand,
:who was hit by a pitch in the
;second inning, was the only
:other player to reach base.
TForehand was caught trying
to steal second in the inning
:as Bickel faced only 19 bat-
ters on the day.
Chris Murphy, who
started the contest, got
,through the first inning with-
:out any major problems, but
;ran into trouble in the second
ias five hits, including a
:double and a two-run homer
'by Luke Stankel, gave NPB
;a 5-0 lead.
Forehand relieved
,Murphy to start the third in-
,ning and pitched three score-
iless innings while striking
iout eight.
DeFuniak finished the
tourney with a 1-3 mark and
a fourth-place finish in the
eight-team event. The squad.
battled relentlessly despite
infijuries to Brennan Orcutt,
Jesse Cosson and Zach
Carter over the la t ten da. \s.
On Sunday morning in
game three of the tourney,
DeFuniak Springs faced off
against Seminole with a spot
in the semifinals on the line.
Kyle Sloan started the
contest for DeFuniak and
lasted two innings, scatter-
ing four hits before being re-
placed by DeShun Tucker,
who entered the contest with
the bases loaded and nobody
out in the third inning.
Tucker proceeded to work out
of the jam without allowing
a hit as he got a pop-up to
Zach Carter at third base
and a double-play grounder
to shortstop Zach Forehand,
who scooped up the hard hit,
ball, stepped on the second
base bag and fired to first
baseman Brandon Bell for
the final out of the inning.
Forehand then used the
momentum of that inning
ending play to launch a solo
home run in the top of the
fourth, his third homer in
three games in the tourna-
ment, for a 1-0 lead
DeFuniak again had a
player injured during a game


as Jesse Cosson took a pitch
to the in lit .id in the top of
the second inning, forcing the
ii 1 -li- .li out of the lineup
and, eventually, to Tallahas-
see NM1iiriarl Hospital for x-
r:, I s. which proved negative.
With Brennan Orcutt al-
ready off the roster due to
injury, that left 10 active
players on the squad, includ-
ing a bruised Zach Carter,
who was able to go at third
base just 48 hours removed
from taking a pitch on his
ri-lil elbow in the Eustis
game.
Tucker made the slim
margin hold up until the
sixth inning, when Michael
Mann reached on a bloop
single. DeFuniak recorded a
force out at second base as
Zach Carter fielded a bunt
and threw a strike to second
baseman Chris Murphy for
the first out of the inning.
Tucker then walked the next
batter to put the winning run
on base, only to get a sacri-
fice fly to rightfielder Tyler
Abbot for the second out of
the inning. Both base run-
ners tagged up on the drive
to right, moving to second
and third with two out. An-
thony Lamoureux, who
pitched the top of the sixth
inning to keep Seminole
close, then deposited a 2-2
pitch into the rightfield
stands for a three-run homer
to win the game for Semi-
nole, 3-1. Tucker, who didn't
get a called strikeout on a 1-
2 pitch on the corner, saw the
fifth pitch of the at-bat sail
out of the park, dropping
DeFuniak to 1-2 in pool play.
The young players that
make up the squad handled
the loss well, despite the
emotional upheaval of hav-
ing victory snatched away at

the last moment. Coaches
Ronnie Bell and Ronnie
Murphy told the squad to
keep their heads up, as the
loss dampened their spirits,
but did not eliminate the
squad from semifinal conten-
tion.
Later in the day on Sun-
day, DeFuniak caught one of
the few breaks they would
get in the tournament.
Eustis rallied for five runs in
the fifth inning with two outs
to defeat Winter Park 6-3.
That outcome left DeFuniak,
Eustis and Winter Park with
records of 1-2, invoking a tie-
breaker to determine the
pool runner-up.
Based on runs allowed,
DeFuniak claimed second
place in the pool, as they gave
up only 12 runs in three
games. Eustis allowed 19 to-
tal runs after getting ham-
mered by Seminole 11-1 in
their second game of the
tourney and Winter Park
gave up 16 in three contests.
The "Runs Allowed Rule" al-
lowed DeFuniak to claim
their place in the Little
League State Tournament
Final Four.
In DeFuniak's second
game of the tournament pool
against Winter Park, the
squad jumped out to a 2-0
lead in the opening inning as
DeShun Tucker singled, stole
second, moved to third on a
passed ball by the Winter
Park catcher and scored as
Joey Sinarski tried to gun
him out at third, only to
throw the ball away down
the leftfield line. Zach Fore-
hand followed with a solo
homer for a 2-0 advantage.
DeFuniak couldn't hold
the lead as an error allowed
the lead-off man to reach for
Winter Park in the top of the

second inning and Jason
Hostetler followed with a
two-run blast to center to tie
the game at 2-2.
Winter Park followed with
another run in the third to
take a 3-2 lead as three
singles and an error help
plate a run for the visiting
squad. Kyle Sloan relieved
Christopher Murphy to get
the final two outs of the in-
ning.
DeFuniak's bats went si-
lent at the plate as Hostetler
relieved starter Kyle
Cavanaugh in the third in-
ning and pitched 2 2/3 hitless
innings.
Winter Park tacked on an-
other run in the fifth inning
as two singles and a double
cushioned the lead at 4-2.
Forehand caught a pop-up on
the outfield grass and
doubled off a runner at sec-
ond with the throw to avoid
further damage.
DeFuniak needed two
runs in their final at-bat to
send the game into extra in-
nings, but could manage only
one as Forehand smacked his
second solo home run of the
game to lead off the sixth in-
ning. Winter Park's Tad
Kebrick settled down and re-
tired the next three batters
in order to preserve the win.
The win evened Winter
Park's record at 1-1 in pool
play and dropped DeFuniak
to that mark as well.
DeFuniak could manage
only three hits off of Winter
Park's three pitchers and the
pair of errors DeFuniak com-
mitted proved costly. DeFu-
niak also had to remove Zach
Carter from the game after
two innings as his elbow in-
jury from being hit by the
pitch against Eustis limited
the range of motion on his
throwing hand.

All- Stars from 8-B


Kyle Sloan's RBI double for
a 1-0 lead.
Eustis struck back with
three runs in the top of the
third as three singles, a bunt
and a wild pitch allowed the
visiting squad to capture a 3-
1 lead.
DeFuniak came back with
their first long-ball of the
contest as Carter blasted a
two-run shot to leftfield after
Jesse Cosson had singled to
make the score 3-3.
I DeFuniak was forced to
change pitchers to start the
fifth inning as Zach Fore-
hand reached his pitch limit
after four innings or work.
Forehand, who struck out
nine, allowed four hits and
three earned runs while bat-
tling an aggressive Eustis
squad at the plate.
Christopher Murphy re-
lieved Forehand to start the


fifth and ran into trouble af-
ter recording the first out as
Eustis smacked a pair of
singles to put two runners
on. DeFuniak brought in
Zach Carter to face Jerry
Richardson, who promptly
doubled to drive in the go-
ahead run. A wild pitch
plated John Mosos for a 5-3
lead before Carter induced a
pair of pop-outs to end the
inning.
The bottom of the fifth in-
ning saw the momentum of
the game turn as Kenneth
Lorenz drew a walk on a full-
count pitch to lead off the in-
ning. After a pair of outs,
Zach Forehand was inten-
tionally walked with Jesse
Cosson drawing a free pass
to load the bases. Mosos then
pegged Zach Carter on the
elbow to force in a run for a
5-4 deficit. Zach Burgess


then deposited a 1-0 pitch
over the left-centerfield fence
for a grand slam and an 8-5
lead, much to the jubilant
celebration of the DeFuniak
crowd in attendance.
Game Notes: DeFuniak
carried 11 players on the ros-
ter, Eustis had 12. Carter
had to leave the game after
getting hit on his pitching-
hand elbow in the bottom of
the fifth inning. DeFuniak
lost Brennan Orcutt to a se-
rious elbow injury in game
two against Tallahassee
Chaires-Capitola, reducing
their active roster to 11 for
the state tournament. Orcutt
was a valuable second
baseman and pitcher for the
squad. The home plate um-
pire was injured on a foul ball
with an apparent broken col-
larbone resulting, causing a

DeShun Tucker was 3-for-10
in four games at the plate.
Those four players accounted
for 11 of the squad's 13 hits
in the four games played.
Jesse Cosson missed the
rest of the tourney after get-
ting hit in the forehead with
a pitch in game three against
Seminole.
Players batting in the 7-
8-9 spots for DeFuniak were
1-for-24 in the four games of
the tournament.
DeFuniak could have been


the top seed in Pool A, but a
questionable umpire's call on
a 1-2 pitch against Seminole
allowed Anthony Lamoureux
another pitch. He promptly
delivered DeShun Tucker's
pitch for a three-run homer
to steal a 3-1 win and the top
seed from DeFuniak.
Zach Forehand and Bur-
gess played on the 9-10 year
old squad that went to the
state tournament two years


,ago for DeFuniak.
Qubte of the tourney: "It
was an honor and a pleasure
to coach these young men.
We couldn't be prouder with
the way they battled, with all
the injuries and playing from
behind, This great group of
kids worked hard and got
further than anyone ex-
pected." Coaches Ronnie
Bell and Murphy after the 5-
0 loss to North Palm Beach.

Saban/Meyer are all the talk


HE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, AUGUST 2, 2007


By CHUCK HINSON
Hoover, Alabama' was all
the buzz this past week as
the SEC had their Media
Days. But it was all about
new head football coach Nick
Saban and Florida coach Ur-
ban Meyer.


the draft. The questions
about this past year's na-
tional championship win
over Ohio State never was a
key point in the interviews
except how this year's team
would compare to last year's
Gators football team.
The spotlight, at least from


handshake, or just a peek at
the man they are calling the
Tide turnaround guy. Nick
Saban was treated more like
a rock star than a college
football coach said some fans
and media members.

Alabama cornerback


Meyer was asked all the the adoring fans of their Simeon Castille said they call
usual questions about the homestate football team, was him a rock star in Alabama.

how they will survive after Tide die-hards, who were try- pus in a frenzy, thanks to all
losing so many key players to ing to get an autograph, a the hype surrounding the


Hokies get media pick


football coach icon.
If the overflow crowds of
92,000 at the spring game
were any indication of fan
loyalty, this past week in
Hoover proved that they are
hoping for the best. Some
think Saban, for his salary,
better secure a winning sea-
son, or at least beat Auburn.,
Urban Meyer has also been
doing his homework with the
fortune tellers. Well, not for-
tune tellers, but other


coaches that have won back-
to-back national titles.
Florida basketball coach
Billy Donovan came to speak
with Meyer earlier on how to
handle and manage a team
to win national champion-
ships from one year to the
next.

Saban faces his former
school on Nov. 3. He says that
he has the utmost respect for
LSU. His return to the NCAA


and SEC from the NFL has
made the two rivalries more
heated.
Both Saban and Meyer
know that they have their
work cut out for them and
both know that one's reputa-
tion relies on a team turn-
around, while the other coach
knows that a repeat win is
nearly impossible, unless you
were Nick Saban's Tidein the
80's under coach Bear
Bryant.


By CHUCK HINSON
It looked like it could have
been Virginia Tech's season
last year, coming off a 10-3
record, but they fell short to
Georgia Tech at the ACC title
game last year. This year,
they are expected to take it
away and head to a major
bowl game.
In Pinehurst, N.C. last
Tuesday, the voting media
members at the league's an-
nual pre-season media days
slated the Hokies to be the
clear favorite with eight re-
turning starters on offense
and eight more on defense
that ranked first nationally,
by allowing 219.5 yards per
game.
Virginia Tech swept the
voting, receiving 69 of 83 pos-
sible votes to win the league
championship game. Like
many other coaches who had
been presented the news of
being number one, head
coach Frank Beamer did not
seem to put too much stock
in the ranking.
Florida State, after an off-


season of rebuilding, is slated
to take the Atlantic Division,
but not expected to beat Vir-
ginia Tech in the ACC cham-
pionship game. After a lack-
luster season in 2006, finish-
ing the year with a 7-6
record, the Seminoles are
said to be on the return. They
are poised for a more profit-
able year and at least a 9-3
season, if predictions are ac-
curate.
The Seminoles got 37 votes
to lead the Atlantic Division.
If both teams finish in the
projected rankings, they will
face off on Dec. I in Jackson-
ville.
The ACC pre-season
rankings were also presented
for the entire ACC line-up.
The votes were cast and
tabulated by 83 media mem-
bers at the ACC kickoff pre-
season media days.

The Boys & Girls


Clubs of the


Emerald Coast


The Boys & Girls Clubs of the
Emerald Coast is organizing
a training program to help
Okaloosa and Walton County
youth prepare for making
healthy choices.
This training will teach skills
such as critical thinking and
communication as well as
ways to avoid peer pressure.
Health Rocks is a curricu-
lum-base life skills develop-
ment program for youth.
Participants learn life skills
such as decision-making,
identifying risks and stress
management.
The program places a spe-
cial emphasis on youth be-
coming responsible members
of their community. It in-
cludes components that
bring youth and adults to-
gether in developing commu-


nity strategies that help 8 -
12 year olds make healthy
choices.
Research indicates that
youth who have positive so-
cial skills and competencies
are more resilient to negative
pressures. The program
works to bring youth and
adults as partners in devel-
oping strategies that prepare
youth to make wise choices.
Adults and youth inter-
ested in attending the train-
ing may contact the Boys &
Girls Clubs of the Emerald
Coast for the closet partici-
pating site at 850-862-1616.

County sets


armoring review


procedure, fees


By DOTTY NIST
Following a course set ,ev-
eral months ago, last week
Walton County commiss:ion-
ers officially put in place jpro-
cedures and fees for prcnfes-
sional review in connection
with seawalls and other
armoring structures on. the
beaches.
On July 24, the Wa.lton
County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC) offi-
cially approved a profes-
sional services contracti with
Dr. Robert Dean of the Uni-
versity of Florida.
A professor of civil and
coastal engineering an.( au-
thor of a number ofbook:s and
articles in his field, Dean is
considered an authority on
coastal armoring and 1b)each
restoration. Among hiEt hon-
ors is that of the 1983 I[nter-
national Coastal Engiineer
Award from the Ameirican


COASTAL ARMIORING
expert Dr. Bob Dean, has offi-
cially been enlisted by Walton
County for professional re-
view of proposed seawalls
and other coastal irmoring
structures along thu county's
beaches.


Society of Civil Engineers.
The state Department of
Environmental Protection
(DEP) is requiring "consis-
tency letters" from Walton
County to accompany state
permit applications from
property owners who want to
construct coastal armoring
structures or who have al-
ready constructed armoring
without a state permit.
In the consistency letter,
the county is required to
specify whether the
armoring is consistent with
the provisions of the Walton
County Comprehensive Plan
or not.
Dean will be tasked with
review of armoring proposals
or structures to make a de-
termination on this matter.
A key factor will be whether
a structure is likely to cause
a significant amount of ero-
sion on the beach.
Dean has stated that fac-
tors that can mitigate ero-
sional effects of armoring in-
clude placement of struc-
tures as far landward as pos-
sible and keeping the struc-
ture covered with sand.
In the months following
Hurricane Dennis in July,
2005, Walton County issued
over 250 permits for the con-
struction of. temporary
armoring structures to aid
beachfront property owners
in shoring up their homes.
The permits were issued un-
der emergency order. In or-
der for structures to legally
remain in place permanently,
property owners were re-
quired to obtain a state per-
mit. They were required to
make application for this per-
mit within 60 days of con-
struction completion on their
armoring.
According to an April 2007
BCC decision, the review
procedure Dean will under-
take will apply to new re-

To pay or not to pay?


Resort merchants collect


entertainment fees


By LEAH STRATMANN
Visitors and locals shop-
ping, dining, or renting lodg-
ing in Seaside, Rosemary
Beach and Sandestin may or
may not be aware of an
added fee charged to pur-
chases made in those loca-
tions, although the payment
of the fee is optional.
Signage can either be
prominent, as it is in Seaside
and Rosemary Beach, or a bit
more.obscured as it is in the
Market Shops at Sandestin
and the Village of Baytowne
Wharf. The purpose of the fee
is to fund a variety of free en-
tertainment found in those
venues.
Virtually every night of
the week, the Village of
Baytowne Wharf offers
something free for the pub-
lic, from live musical concerts
to large festivals, according
to Zandra Wolfgram, director
of public relations at
Sandestin. Since opening in
2002, Baytowne Wharf has
charged 2 percent for enter-


tainment, while the shops
located in The Market Shops
at Sandestin charge 1 per-
cent.
"A huge majority of the
budget in Baytowne Wharf is
for events. We -sponsor
ArtsQuest and the Sandestin
Wine Festival. Both of those
events have a charitable
component, so the whole
community benefits,"
Wolfgram said. "Table cards
and other signs are provided
to every merchant informing
people about the fee."
Wolfgram pointed out that
the fee charged at the shops
went toward capital improve-
ment to the retail center,
such as the relatively new
Cypress Green
Amphitheatre, which is the
site for free musical enter-
tainment and movies in the
summer.
In doing research for this
story, a purchase was made
in the Zoo Gallery at the mar-
ket shops and the clerk was
well versed in how to back


out the entertainment fee
from the purchase price,
making for a seamless pur-'
chase. However, the small
placard explaining the tax
was not easy to see amid a
lot of other items crowding
the cash register and it'
would be easy to overlook it.
Walton County imposes a,
local option tax of 1 percent
across the board to every putr-
chase, excluding hotel rooms
and condos. The tax goes ex-
clusively for the removal of;
trash, according to finance'
director Bill Imfeld. Imfeld
noted the county collects $12 ;
million annually from this lo- i
cal option tax. "When they'
call it a fund, that is a neat'
way to skirt around the word
tax," Imfeld noted, "but the:
county is not involved in this
in any way and doesn't ben-
efit from any of it."
Those renting condos in:
Baytowne Wharf are subject
to the 2-percent fee, plus the

No help from FDOT concerning intersection


By JEFFREY POWELL
The Walton County Com-
munity Traffic Safety Team
(CTST) received so me disap-
pointing news recently con-
cerning the intersection of
U.S. 98 and Churnch Street/
Moll Drive in south Walton'
County. The CTST had asked
the Florida Department of
Transportation (FDOT) to re-
view~ the intersection in
hopes 'of having a traffic sig-
nal installed at that location.
In a letter to CTST Chair-
man Latilda Henninger,
Traffic Studies Technician
Kathie Birge stated that a
signal could not b( "justified
at this location at this time."
Birge's letter also stated "fed-
eral guidelines for signaliza-
tion were not met., Addition-
ally, a review of the collisions
for a 48-month period ending
in 2007 did not show a safety
problem correctable by the
installation .of a traffic sig-
nal."
Henninger is appreciative
that the FDOT took the time
to review the matter, but has


a slightly different view of
the situation. "Even though
the CTST felt this worthy of
consideration, the FDOT,
based on its current evalua-
tion, has indicated a signal
is not necessary at this time,"
Henninger said. She is con-
cerned that the study is
based on the history of the in-
tersection rather than future
increases in vehicular activ-
ity. Henninger noted that
:there are two churches in the
area; a large-scale develop-
ment is being built north of
the intersection and the
county is planning an expan-
sion of Helen McCall Park.
"Traffic is only going to get
worse at this intersection,"
Henninger said.
The CTST comprises local
city, county and state agen-
cies as well as representa-
tives of private industries
and citizens. Their main goal
is to identify and reduce the
number and severity of traf-
fic mishaps in and around'
Walton County.

More discussion to



come on Angelo's


By DOTTY NIST
"We have fought these
battles for two years...I can't
imagine we would fold on
this one," asserted Walton
County District 5 Commis-
sioner Cindy Meadows.
"Restoring it isn't the
same as preserving it,"
agreed District 1 Commis-
sioner Scott Brannon.
While there was no deci-
sion last week on Angelo's at
Seagrove a 24-unit multi-
family complex proposed for
the south end of San Roy
Road Meadows and
Brannon stated in no uncer-
tain terms that they would
not overlook county staff rec-
ommendations. Those recom-
mendations indicated that
the plans as proposed did not
meet a code requirement call-
ing for 95-percent preserva-
:tion of the native dune plant
community on a portion of
the beachfront site.
Proponents of the project's
argument was that they
would be "giving back what
'doesn't exist today" on the
site with a dune restoration
project on a "wash out" area
and a revegetation project in
that area, and all along the
dunes. Professional engineer
Bill Stoddard maintained
that the work would restore
the beach to "what existed in
1998," when dunes extended
in an unbroken line on the
south side of the property.
Stoddard added that plans
are to add sand to extend the
dune across the adjacent
county access and link it with
the coastal armoring at
Sugar Dunes condominiums,
in order to prevent future
wash out.
Developer's representa-
tive and attorney Jesse Rigby
admitted that a portion of the
dune would be impacted by
the proposed building but ar-
gued, "The bulk of that dune
is being preserved.".-
The county staff report
was based on an interpreta-
tion of county code that "for
development in areas charac-
terized by dune vegetation,"
at least 95 percent of the na-
tive dune community south
of both the coastal construc-
tion control line (CCCL) and
the coastal protection zone
(CPZ) must be preserved.
Rigby argued that, histori-
cally, developers had only
been held to retaining the 95
percent south of whichever of
the lines happened to be
"more seaward." In this in-
stance, but not all, the CPZ
lies further seaward.
Rigby emphasized that


THE DieFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, AUGUST 2, 2007


"You can roll out all your experts... nothing
is as good as what Mother Nature put in,"
said County Commissioner Cindy Meadows.


"every bit" of the native plant
community would be pre-
served forward of the CPZ,
which he described as lying
roughly in the area of the pri-
mary dune.
Engineer Dean Burgis
added that, if the 0.12 acre
slated for revegetation were
included, the preservation
requirement would be met.
"You can roll out all your
experts...nothing is as good
as what Mother Nature put
in," Meadows countered. She
was surprised that anyone
would propose eliminating
part of an existing dune,
"nature's first line of protec-
tion." Meadows referenced
the public funds that the
county has been forced to ex-
pend to address storm im-
pacts along the coast, par-
ticularly since the 2005 tropi-
cal season. Ma a-
rine scientist Brad Pickel,
currently a coastal manage-
ment consultant for the
South Walton Tourist Devel-
opment Council, testified
that the proposed restora-
tion/revegetation project
would offer survivability ad-
vantages over no action.
However, Pickel commented
that, typically, newly planted
sea oats do not survive the
impact of "the smallest
storm," in sharp contrast
with older, established
plants, which may have roots
30 to 40 feet deep and which
provide support for some of
the woodier plants that exist
in the dune area.
Pickel added that the
county is planning a large-
scale beach nourishment
project in the area of the pro-
posed development.
"Restoration is not preser-
vation," concurred Bill
McKee, county planning de-
partment environmental
manager.
McKee said the existing
native dune area on the
project site is a rare and
quite mature plant commu-
nity that includes live oaks
and magnolias. Taking out
part of the plant community
and then planting sea oats
would "not afford the same
level of protection of the
natural community that's
there," he observed.
"The mistakes of the past


don't necessarily obligate us
to repeat the past," he added.
Rigby noted that, if the
BCC's interpretation was
that there could be no impact
greater than 5 percent for-
ward of both the CCCL and
the CPZ, then the project
would have to be cut back by
50 percent, to 12 units,', and
would not be financially fea-
sible.
"That is the Harris Act
claim," he asserted.
"I don't think the Harris
Act scares us," Meadows
countered.
Additional testimony in-
cluded the compatibility as-
pect of the development. A
report by an expert witness
in that regard was also chal-
lenged by county staff, and
discussion included, 10 rec-
ommended conditions at-
tached to the project at the
Walton County Planning
Commission level.
One condition was a U.S.
Fish and Wildlife incidental
take permit, which staff
noted would likely result in
modification of the project.
Another condition was an
updated boundary survey.
Pat Blackshear, county plan-
ning and development.direc-
tor, said that knowing the
correct acreage for the

project site has been "a real
issue for us all along."Allow-
able density is based upon
acreage.
Citizen Bill Bullock urged
the commissioners to ap-
prove the project only on the
condition that the primary
dune not be impacted.
Addressing compatibility,
San Roy Road homeowner
John Martin urged the pro-
ponents to go back to the
drawing board and redesign
the project to minimize im-
pacts on single-family homes
in its vicinity.
"It's the right building but
unfortunately it's the wrong
place," he said.
In contrast, the condo-
minium president of neigh-
boring Beachside Villas tes-
tified that the concerns of his
organization have been sat-
isfied and that Beachside Vil-
las supports the develop-
ment.
Anita Page of the South
Walton Community Council
commented that the compat-
ibility analysis provided by
the project proponents' ex-


pert witness appeared to rely
less on ,single-family home
uses in the vicinity and more
on condominium uses, in-
cluding Beachside Villas and
Sugar Dunes, which are non-
conforming uses.
Page also highlighted the
need for an updated survey,
testifying that different docu-
menents she had reviewed re-
garding the property had
,stated different acreage
numbers.
"Everything seems to go
back to the 1999 survey," she
is aid, questioning why a more
recent survey had not been
provided with the applica-


tion, even though the prop-
erty had changed hands as
recently as 2004.
Then, the hour having
reached approximately 10
p.m., Meadows motioned to
continue discussion of the
proposal to the August 14
regular BCC meeting in or-
der to allow for an updated
survey and additional infor-
mation to be provided and re-
viewed in advance of a deci-
sion. The meeting is sched-
uled to begin at 4 p.m. and
take place at the South Wal-
ton Courthouse Annex.
'Meadows' motion was ap-
proved unanimously.

Movie Review

Cooks in Love:

"No Reservations"


By BRUCE COLLIER
Chefs, at least for the mo-
ment, are the new rock stars.
The old rock stars are all
dead, retired, or too busy sav-
ing the world to bother doing
what made them famous in
the first place. Superchefs'
celebrity status gives them
all the perks that rock stars
enjoy recognition, adula-
tion, and the right to tem-
peramental behavior. But
what happens when such a
chef is forced to consider
someone other than herself?
Scott Hicks' film, "No Res-
ervations," deals with a ce-
lebrity chef, Kate, played by
Catherine Zeta-Jones. Kate
is the bright star of a restau-
rant in New York's West Vil-
lage, owned by Paula
(Patricia Clarkson). Paula
values Kate, but spends a
great deal of time cleaning up
after Kate's moody behavior
with staff and customers.
Fed up but not in the good
way Paula orders Kate to
seek therapy. The sessions


seem to be going nowhere
when an automobile crash-
robs Kate of her sister and
leaves her with a niece, Zoe
(Abigail Breslin), to tend.
You're thinking, "Wait, I
heard this was a romantic
comedy!" aren't you? It is,
mostly. Kate's talent, bad be-
havior, therapy, bereavement
and new responsibilities are
taken care of with cinematic
economy. However, a child
isn't the only new thing in
Kate's life. During Kate's
leave of absence, Paula hires
a new chef, Nick (Aaron
Eckhart) to "help out" in the
kitchen. Though the sunny,
opera-loving Nick protests
he's only there to learn from
her, Kate feels threatened.
Her kitchen defines her, she
says, it's her life.
Chick-flick aficionados
will recognize these words
and this philosophy. One
could be cynical and observe
that the message of "No Res-
ervations" is, simply, "there's
nothing wrong with Kate
that having a good man and


a child to look after won't
cure." Since that does seem
to be what the movie is say-
ing, one is faced with the
choice of being cynical or re-
alizing that cynicism is not
an appropriate critical ap-
proach to chick-flicks. Like
pro wrestling and Hairless
Chinese Crested dogs, they
are what they are, and must
be understood as such.
That said, "No Reserva-
tions" benefits from high
quality ingredients. Zeta-
Jones and Eckhart are both
pleasing to the eye, and have
a flair for intelligent grown-
up romantic comedy. Breslin
is cute in a normal kid way,
and her grief over her loss is
convincing and free from his-
trionics. Angelina Jolie could
learn a thing or two.
Clarkson gives a restrained,
slyly sexy performance as the
cordial, no-nonsense restau-
rateur, and Irish actor Brian
F. 0' Byrne had my sympa-
thy as Sean, Kate's smitten
nice-guy neighbor. On the
other hand, any guy with
Catherine Zeta-Jones for a
neighbor doesn't need my
sympathy.
Unlike Pixar's recent
"Ratatouille," "No Reserva-
tions" really isn't about pro-
fessional cooking, or the
drive to create. The purpose


PAGE,3-C
of food here is as a binder.
Some of the major emotional
breakthoughs in the story
are made over meals a sat-
isfying pasta dish whipped
up in a busy kitchen, or a
homemade pizza-and-
tiramisu brunch enjoyed in a
makeshift kid's "tent." Hicks
also exploits the sillier as-
pects of the world of high cui-
sine. "I've packed your
lunch," Kate tells Zoe on her
first day of school, "I hope you
like duck." The scene where
Kate serves her niece a "kid-
friendly" meal of fish sticks,
artfully stacked and plated
like a "Bon Appetit" cover
photo, makes me laugh just
thinking about it.
"No Reservations" con-
tains virtually no rough lan-
guage and no violence, aside
from some vigorous kitchen-
knife work. The physical as-
pects of romance are dis-
creetly hinted at. If you con-
sider New York in the fall a
romantic place, you'll get a
boost from the locations.
Though much of the laugh-
out-loud stuff can be seen in
the trailer, I didn't feel short-
changed. "No Reservations"
is a well-executed romantic
comedy in the old-fashioned
style. It's nice to see that my
demographic is still being
served.


meet with
By JEFFREY POWELL
The newly organized citi-
zens group called Coalition
for a Non-Toxic Environment
will meet with officials from
the South Walton Mosquito
Control District (SWMCD)
onAugust 7, at 9:30 a.m. The
workshop will be conducted
to address citizen concerns
over pesticide usage in and
around the south Walton
County area.
"Anybody that is con-
cerned about these issues is
invited to attend," said coa-
lition representative Gail
Powell.
Powell and her organiza-


SWMCD
tion feel that too much pesti-
cide use is harming the envi-
ronment. Recently Powell
had voiced her concerns to
the Walton County Board of
County Commissioners
(BCC) and they suggested
she meet with the SWMCD.
The BCC will soon decide
whether to have the state use
aerial spraying for dog flies,
a subject sure to be discussed
during the workshop.
"Anything we can do to
address citizens' concerns
about the environment and
mosquito control is some-
thing I am happy to do," said
SWMCD Director Gary

Enough with Paris
and Britney; not an-
other word about
President Bush and
house speaker
Pelosi turmoil, and
no more about the
2008 elections and
all the scandal. At
what point do we as
American citizens,
say stop with all the
media bombardment
about politics, celeb-
rities and the latest
crazes?


Does the media have too
much access to the private
lives of celebrities? Does it
seem that they always have
to give their personal
thoughts about everything
and everyone they interview?
Do they have too much access
to our lives and our leaders?
Some say yes and that it is
time to pull on the reins and
bring reporters and journal-
ists back into the pen, while
others say let them at 'em.
For many years, the nation
has turned to local and na-
tional journalists to bring
them the news of the world.
In the old days, families
would gather around the ra-
dio in the living room to hear
a few words of wisdom and a
voice of hope and trust in
their nightly news anchor.
It was once an exciting
evening to watch television
to see the "breaking news"
scroll onto the screen telling
us to be sure to tune into the
10 p.m. news. Always an ex-
citing time to gather around
the radio, and in later years,
in front of the television set
to hear and see the latest
news from earlier that day
and even from earlier that
week.
Now, we catch the breaking
news as soon as it happens.
No more having to wait for
Dan Rather or Peter
Jennings on the evening
news. Just flip over to CNN,
MSNBC or FOX News on the
desktop computer ,Ipod, cell
phone, even on a wristwatch,
and catch the action as it un-
folds. It not only boosts rat-
ings for those programs, but
also keeps us glued to that
television station.

stations, one can find the lat-
est news, the stock gains and
losses, the latest Hollywood
news, the political standings,
and even see commercials, all
on the same screen. It takes
someone with five different
personalities and voices in
their head to be able to ab-
sorb and comprehend all the
news being thrown at them
in a 30-second time period.
The news channels are not
the biggest problem. It is the
media itself that has got
many in an uproar. An up-
roar that has cost several
journalists their jobs and
many networks fines and li-
censes suspended.
Ever, since the white
Bronco chase that took place
in October of 1994 on LA's
freeway, starring O.J.
Simpson, the California me-
dia has been obsessed with
car chases. I recently
watched nearly four hours of
police pursuits on one man,
that ended in him pulling
over, being handcuffed and
carted off to jail.
. Four hours of police video
and helicopter pursuit that
ended up in two of those tele-
vision stations' choppers
crashing into one another,
trying to get the scoop.
Another prime example of
too much media, is during
the elections. One station in
2004 had to make a public
apology for blabbing too early
that Al Gore would be the
next president of the United
States. This announcement
was made before the long,
drawn-out process of
Florida's recount had been
completed.
Other examples of too
much media and the govern-
ment have been evident from
their blatant misuse of infor-
mation and leaking of infor-
mation during time of war.
Information that has landed
several reporters, editors and
station managers in hot wa-
ter and even in the unem-,


ployment line.
Time after time, the media
has made biased statements
that have not only backfired
and damaged the credibility
of that network, but have
given information that has
helped and aided criminals
and even enemies of
America.
That has been a proven
fact by several media and
government watchdog
groups.
For years, America has had
another obsession' with the
media and their "get the
scoop first approach" to Hol-
lywood. A never-ending com-
munity of followers that
watch the television, study
the Internet blogs, buy the
trash rags and text each
other on the latest pantiless
adventures of Britney
Spears.
Now, with networks like
"E" Entertainment Televi-
sion and the TMZ Celebrity
website, anything and every-
thing can be found out about
celebrities, good and bad,
smart and stupid, surprising
or not. Both tell the dirt,
share the news, and talk
about anything else related
to Hollywood.
Many say that both of
these "news" outlets are an
invasion of privacy and go too
far into the lives of celebri-
ties. While others, including
myself, respond by saying
"you chose the life, now pay
the price."
If they did not want the
spotlight except when they
are receiving an award, not
when they are getting ar-
rested for a DUI, they
should have chosen another
career. These celebrities
must keep in mind, the pub-,
lic made them and the pub-
lic can destroy them.
The Weather Channel is
not exempt from scrutiny in
the public eye. How many
times have we heard Jim
'Cantore say that "the worst


is yet to come" or "this storm
is definitely on a path of
death and destruction."
In the old days, people re-
lied on the way the dog in the
yard reacted when they were
trying to get the forecast.
Despite the Weather Chan-
nel being a great source for
fair warning on approaching
hurricanes and their pro-
jected paths, it has caused
panic in other ways.
For some years, they have
been pushing the fact of glo-
bal warming all over the.
world with the increased
number of hurricanes, the
polar caps melting at an
alarming rate, and so on. In
reality, scientists and meteo-
rologists have been saying
for years that hurricanes
come in decade cycles and
the ice glaciers have been
melting for the last 1,000
years.
Because of the news, we
are now scrambling to save
a tree, recycle human waste
and drive a car that puts
more pollution in the air to
manufacture, than what it
saves in gas and emissions
as an electric vehicle. All the
hype is due to the Weather
Channel and other networks.
that have gotten on the
"green" wagon, and that
doesn't just mean the color
of the tree leaves.
It is the "in" thing to be
green. But, many many ex-
perts, including scientists,
say that we all need to do our
part to conserve, our earth,
but do it in moderation.
'The media has also begun
what many could call it's
mind and method manipula-
tion.
From being too liberal or
conservative, being too im-,
posing and biased, forcing
too much personal opinion
and taking no responsibility
for doing whatever neces-
sary for getting the first
scoop, the media has in-
formed, but also confused
and misled the public.
As you watch the televi-
sion tonight, or your Ipod,
computer, wristwatch, etc.,
take a moment to check out
how the news is presented in
and what fashion it is told
to the American audience. It
will make you realize why
the family gathered around
the radio in the 30s, 40s and
50s and why today, we won-
der how our kids know as
much as they do, be it good
or bad!

Northwest Florida Symphony Orchestra announces 2007-08 season of classical excellence


The Northwest Florida
Symphony Orchestra
(NFSO) at Okaloosa-Walton
College announces its 2007-
08 concert season and the
availability of season tickets.
The region's premiere profes-
sional symphony, the NFSO
is celebrating the arrival of
Boston Maestro Jeffrey Rink
as the first full-time conduc-
tor in the orchestra's 20-year
history. The NFSO, under
the baton of Rink, will
present beloved master-
pieces, national guest artists,
and collaborative perfor-
mances with the Northwest
Florida Ballet and the North-
west Florida Symphony Cho-
rus for the 2007-08 season.
"The orchestra's home
venue at the OWC Mattie
Kelly Arts Center in Niceville
offers a superb orchestral ex-
perience," noted Maestro
Rink, "A varied and exciting
season is in store which truly
offers something for every
one." As the conductor and


music director o! i NFSO
Jeffrey Rink holds the Mattie
Kelly Distinguished En-
dowed Teaching Chair in
Music at OWC.
Season tickets for a series
of five concerts are now avail-
able for $100, a significant
savings over single ticket
prices. Season subscribers
enjoy concerts from their pre-
ferred seats at the Mattie
Kelly Arts Center, an exclu-
sive pre-season champagne
reception with Maestro Rink,
and the opportunity to pur-
chase additional tickets to
any NFSO performance prior
to individual ticket sales be-
ing available to the general
public.
"Even if someone can't
attend all five concert events,
we encourage season sub-
scriptions as each subscriber
receives individual reserved
tickets to each concert," ex
plained Rink. "These 'best
seat in the house' tickets can
make marvelous gifts for


friends or business associ-
ates." Rink noted that sea-
son subscriptions are also the
foundation of the orchestra's
varied endeavors, including
educational programs for
area youth.
The season's opening con-
cert on October 27 will fea-
ture national guest artist
Cellist virtuoso Andres Diaz.
A Naumberg Prize winner
who has performed at
Carnegie Hall and around
the word, Diaz has received
critical acclaim from The
New York Times for his
"strongly interpretive vi-
sion". Diaz will be featured
with the NFSO in a perfor-
mance of Saint Saens' Cello
Concerto in A minor.
The Saint Saens A Minor
concerto is one of the great-
est works for cello and or-
chestra, combining an explo-'
sive opening contrasted by a
plaintive middle section and
a brilliant conclusion. The
opening concert of the NFSO


Walton County YMCA is hosting


NFL Pepsi Punt, Pass, and Kick


contest August 18


season will also feature the
works of other 19th Century
Masters including Richard
Wagner's stormy Overture to
the Flying Dutchman and
Dvoak's joyous Symphony
No. 8 in G major.
The NFSO's second con-
cert event of the season will
once again feature a collabo-
ration with the Northwest
Florida Ballet on a classic
holiday treat, The Nut-
cracker, on November 16, 17
& 18. The November 16 per-
formance is included in the
NFSO season package at a
significant savings over the
single ticket price for this
popular event.
On December 7, join the
NFSO as the orchestra and
the Northwest Florida Sym-
phony Chorus present "Holi-
day Pops!" an evening filled
with popular holiday fare in-
cluding carol sing-a-longs
and festive works for brass,
choir. The
"Stars of Tomorrow" will be
presented February 22, 2008
with prestigious Concerto
Competition winners who
will dazzle audience mem-
bers with their polish and
virtuosity as they perform
with the NFSO.
"The Concerto Competi-
tion winners are always truly


stunning and this event is
one of the favorites of our
long-time NFSO patrons,"
explained Rink.
Join "Beethoven and
Friends" on April 18, 2008 as
the NFSO evokes powerful
emotions of sorrow, joy and
hope in the orchestra's spec-
tacular season finale. Begin
the evening experiencing
Mendelssohn's Overture to
the Beautiful Melusine,
based on the timeless classi-
cal tale of the Little Mer-
maid. Then, feel the joy and
hope brought out in the Lord
Nelson Mass by Franz Josef
Haydn, presented with the
Northwest Florida Sym-
phony Chorus. Beethoven's
"Symphony of the Dance," or
Symphony No. 7 in A major
will provide a powerful and,
jubilant conclusion to this
exciting season with the
NFSO.
Season tickets are avail-
able now through the Mattie
Kelly Fine and Performing
Arts Center box office and
may be purchased by phone,
by mail or in-person. Call the
box office at 729-6000. Indi-
vidual tickets for all perfor-
mances dates of the NFSO
will be available starting
September 17. The Mattie
Kelly Arts Center is located


on the Niceville campus of
OWC at 100 College Boule-
vard and is easily accessible
via U.S. Highway 285, High-
way 85 and the mid-bay
bridge.
Prior to joining the NFSO
July 1, Maestro Rink served
concurrently as the Music
Director of Chorus pro
Musica in Boston, Massachu-
setts and the Newton Sym-
phony Orchestra, Director of
Orchestral Activities at the
Longy School of Music,
where he conducted the
Longy Chamber Orchestra,
and was on the faculty of the
University of Massachusetts
in Boston. He was previously
conductor of the New En-
gland Philharmonic for eight
years in which he won four
ASCAP awards for adven-
turesome programming and
commitment to new music.
The talented.professional
musicians who perform with
the NFSO come from across
the greater panhandle region
and many of the symphony's
guest artists have an inter-
national reputation. The or-
chestra has performed con-
tinuously each season since
1987, providing cultural pro-
grams to thousands of area
residents in its 20-year his-
tory.

quests for consistency let-
ters, and other letter re-
quests that are not connected
with the Hurricane Dennis
emergency order period. Also
included will be any letter
requests from property own-
ers who constructed
armoring during the emer-
gency order period but did
not apply for a state
armoring permit within 60
days from construction
completion.
Dean's work will include
review of armoring plans and


site visits to evaluate poten-
tial erosion of armoring.
The BCC approved a rate
of $175 per hour for his pro-
fessional services, plus reim-
bursement for work-related
expenses. Under the ap-
proved agreement, Dean's
services will be funded en-
tirely by applicants for con-
sistency letters. To pay for
the review services, a deposit
of $5,000 will be required to
accompany each application.
The commissioners expect
review of many of the appli-


to sectional competition held
in October in Fort Walton
Beach. The winners in sec-
tional competition are eli-
gible for a trip to a NFL game
.in Jacksonville to see the
Jacksonville Jaguars play,

level.
Any unused balance is to
be returned to the applicant.
If professional services fees
reach the $5,000 level, Dean
has been directed to stop
work until the, county has
obtained additional funding
from the applicant to reim-
burse any further work that
is necessary.
Some applications will be
shared by a number of adja-
cent property owners who
had armoring constructed as
a cooperative endeavor.
The contract approved
with Dean is for a two-year
period.

FEES
FROM FRONT
1-percent county option tax,
4 percent dedicated to the
Tourist Development Coun-
cil and 6-percent sales tax,
bringing the total to 13 cents
out of every dollar spent.
The amount of money gar-
nered from this fee is impos-
sible to determine. Since the
fees charged are given to the
Neighborhood Association of
Baytowne Wharf and the
Merchants of Seaside and
Rosemary Beach, neither the
amount collected nor the
amount spent on entertain-
ment falls under the category
of public record subject to
scrutiny.
Jim Babgy, the town man-
ager of Rosemary Beach, es-
timates the amount collected
there exceeds $50,000 per
year. "Every development
charges this fee differently,"
he said. "The fee applies to
rental units in Rosemary
Beach, but people who rent
office space pay a flat fee to
be members of the merchants
association and membership
is optional. The merchants
see the goodness in putting
on events that bring people
to the area who will then
shop in their stores," he said.
In Rosemary Beach, as in
the other venues, the shop-
per may choose to not pay the
additional fee. Bagby also
noted that in Rosemary
Beach, individual merchants
are on the honor system in
turning over these fees to the
merchant association, which
is another reason the funds
collected are not made pub-
lic. "Merchants want to keep
their total sales private even
from the other area mer-
chants," he said.

tection, 160 Governmental Center,

mit with the attached conditions un-
less a timely petition for an adminis-
trative hearing is filed under Sections
120.569 and 120.57, Florida Stat-
utes, within fourteen days of receipt
of notice. The procedures for petition-
ing for a hearing are set forth below.

ests are affected by the Department's
proposed permitting decision may pe-
tition for an administrative proceed-
ing (hearing) under Sections 120.569
and 120.57, Florida Statutes. The
petition must contain the information
set forth below and must be filed (re-
ceived by the clerk) in the Office of

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD THURSDAY, AUGUST 2,2007


time for filing a petition for an admin-
istrative hearing. The request must
be filed (received by the clerk) in the
Office of General Counsel before the
end of the time period for filing a pe-
tition for an administrative hearing.

Petitions filed by any persons
other than those entitled to written
notice under Section 120.60(3),
Florida Statutes, must be filed within
fourteen days of publication of the
notice or within fourteen days of re-
ceipt of the written notice, whichever
occurs first. Under Section 120.60(3),
Florida Statues, however, any person
who has asked the Department for
notice of agency action may file a
petition within fourteen days of re-
ceipt of such notice, regardless of the
date of publication.

The petitioner shall mail a copy
of the petition to the applicant at the
address indicated above at the time
of filing. The failure of any person to
file a petition within fourteen days of
receipt of notice shall constitute a
waiver of that person's right to re-
quest an administrative determina-
tion (hearing) under Sections
120.569 and 120.57, Florida Stat-
utes. Any subsequent intervention (in
a proceeding initiated by another
party) will be only at the discretion of

rial facts on which the Department's,
action is based must contain the fol-
lowing information:

(a) The name, address, and tele-
phone number of each petitioner; the
name, address, and telephone num-
ber of the petitioner's representative,
if any; the Department permit identi-
fication number and the county in
which the subject matter or activity is
located;
I (b) A statement of how and when
each petitioner received notice of the
Department action;
(c) A statement of how each
petitioner's substantial interests are
affected by the Department action;
(d) A statement of all disputed is-
sues of material fact. If there are
none, the petition must so indicate;
(e) A statement of facts that the
petitioner contends warrant reversal
or modification of the Department ac-
tion;
(f) A concise statement of the ulti-
mate facts alleged, as well as the
rules and statutes which entitle the
petitioner to relief; and
(g) A statement of the relief sought
by the petitioner, stating precisely the,
.action that the petitioner wants the
Department to take.

Because the administrative hear-
ing process is designed to formulate
final agency action, the filing of a pe-
tition means that the Department's fi-
nal action may be different from the
position taken by it in this notice. Per-
sons.whose substantial interests will
be .affected by any such final deci-
si'onr of the Department have the right
to petition to become a party to the
proceeding, in accordance with the
requirements set forth above.

Mediation under Section 120.573,
Florida Statutes, is not available for
this proceeding.
