Two former Walton
Cou n, t Sheriff's Office
W\VCSO) deputies have filed
a' complaint with the Equal
Emiploi mient Oppoltunity
Co(minii-itin i EEOCI alleg-
ing that they have been the
victims ofdiscrimination be-
cause they were pregnant.
Former WCSO deputies
Melissa Vause and Kristen
Infinger allege that Walton
County Sheriff Ralph
Johnson's re-written medical
leave policy., which elimi-
niate# a "light dut\" option for
site oiin-v.%o'rk-related medical
conditions or inj urlt-., ha- dfe-
prived them of their jobs
S Attiri' e Micchael J.
Rudicell of Pensacola repre-
sents both Vause and
Infinger. Speaking of the
complaint to EEOC. Rudicell
called it "very general," and
"not as detailed as a civil
complaint."
Each deputy's complaint.
N which V\a.s made 011 .July 10.
makes the -.me alle'at rion-
In finer's complaint -tate-
that she informed her super-
isoIr that in January, 2007.
"Pursuant to policy at that
time," the complaint contin-:
ues, "a deputy who was preg-
inant was allowed to transfer
temporarily to available ligh t
duty positions if unable to
perform her regular duties.
On February 17, 200.7 Sher-
iffRalph Jolin-oni alteri--d the
-written policy on 'light dut."
effective March 15. 2007 I
was terminated effective
May, 24, 2007."
Vause's complaint reads
the same, differing only on


the dates ofher hire and no-
tification of pregnancy, and
the date of her employment
termination, which was'July
2, 2007. Both complaints al-
lege that "[tlhe new 'light
duty' policy has been applied
in a discriminatory manner
and was promulgated with
the intent of discriminating
against pregnant officers in
contravention of Title VII."
"Title VII" refers to Title
VII of the Civil Rights Act of
1964 and its subsequent
amendments, prohibiting
employment discrimination
based on race. color, religion,
sex or national origin. Both
Vaiise and Infinger have
asked the EEOC to initiate
an investigation and take
"appropriate action."
The EEOC is currently
evaluating the complaint to
determine probable cause to
hold an investigation.
Rudicell said "I won't specu-
late" as to how the EEOC. a
federal agency, will decide.
He did say hle expected a de-
cision to be made in the near
fut ure.
Johnson has been quoted
elsewhere as denying any
discrimination, and saying
that both deputies are eli-
gible for rehire, though not
necessarily at their former
jobs. Infinger had been a
deputy sheriff since 2004.
Va use was hired as a deputy
sheriff in 2003. and had been
promoted to investigator in
",2004. .
Rudicell said that Vause
had her child last week, and
Infinger is expected to de-
liver hers in September.

How they spent their


summer vacation


Over the last few months,
the DeFuniak Springs Her-
ald has suffered an embar-
rassment of riches. The
newspaper has played host to
two journalism interns,
Laken Davis and Reid
Tucker, both of DeFuniak
Springs. According to editor
Ron Kelley, having the in-
terns on staff this summer
has been a welcome addition.
"Their enthusiasm, energy
and eagerness to learn has
reminded the whole staff
how fun it is to be in the
newspaper business. From
an editor's standpoint, it's
been great. I'd just point at a
story and they'd go bounding
off after it, like puppies chas-
ing a laughing toddler."

Laken, a 20-year-old Uni-
versity of Florida junior, is
majoring in print journalism
and will graduate in the sum-
mer of 2008.
Of her time at the Herald,
Laken said, "As a reporter, I
have had several opportuni-
ties to meet people and see
sights that I may not have
had otherwise. Some of my
favorite reporting projects in-
clude a piece on the
AIRHeart air-ambulance ser-
vice, an update piece on Vor-
tex Spring and an update
piece on the restoration of
Juniper Lake. For each of the
pieces, I was able to do some-
thing I had never done be-'
fore. I finished each article
thinking, 'This was amazing.'
In fact, I have found that the
photography I have done at
the Herald has been one of
my favorite aspects of the in-
ternship. It has.become one
of my new interests. Some of
my favorite photos have been
of the Chautauqua Hall of
Brotherhood, of ducks and
ducklings at the Lakeyard
and of Vortex Spring.
"Because of the experi-
ences I have had at the pa-
per, I have seen the two sides
of reporting. There is the,
'This is unbelievablee' new--





DISCI
why 15 mnillior
trust their

STATE


best-day-of-my-life side, and
there is the, 'What am I go-
ing to do if I can't find this
information?' stressed-out
side."
Although Laken would be
welcome at any number of
newspapers when she fin-
ishes school, it's unlikely that
you'll be seeing her byline.
Upon graduating, Laken
plans to immediately enroll
in law school and focus on
family law. "Law school is
about gathering information
and communicating that in-
formation," she said, "just
like the newspaper business.
The internship has been a
huge help in preparing me
for future work and as prepa-
ration for law school."
Reid Tucker, a 19-year-old
Walton County native, is
heading to the University of
Central Florida in Orlando.
He plans to major in print
journalism and wants a ca-
reer as a news reporter.
Reid says he's a better
writer after his summer in-
ternship and has learned a
lot about the newspaper
business, the process of put-
ting a paper together and has
also learned a lot about him-
self. He said that when he
learned he could not use the
word "I" or interject an opin-
ion and instead had to write
only in the third-person, he
"froze up."
"Just when things were
looking bad for me, though, I
got assigned to cover Paxton
Town Council meetings. It
didn't take long for me to
catch on the fact that local
government is full, surpris-
ingly, of unforeseen sur-
prises. This was a real eye-
opener for me, this .newfound
knowledge. I daresay it was
an epiphany: people in gov-
ernment are people, people
who get bothered by annoy-
ances at 9:30 in the evening
and want desperately to go
home and get some supper,
just like me," he said.
"Of course, not all the time


..1


I spent at the Herald was
filled with epiphanies; I had
to work some time. There
was the colorful weekend I
spent with Dead Heads and
other old-school rockers at
the Mossy Headz music fes-
tival. I've been to grand open-
ings, ribbon cuttings, a mov-
ing National Day of Prayer
around the Lakeyard, had
conference calls with what
seemed to be the entire ad-
ministrative office of Paxton
High School at the pinnacle
of the Bobcat mascot contro-
versy.
"Sifting through the vast-
ness of the Walton County
Courthouse's archived copies
of -the Herald and Breeze
from the early 20th century
on my hands and knees like
a paleontologist, I researched
a story on the original
Chautauqua Assembly. I've'
spoken with a Vietnam vet-
eran who manages an apart-
ment building in town who is
the clearest representation of
determination and self-sacri-
fice I've ever yet encoun-
tered. It is his face I'll re-
member forever when I think
of words like 'patriotism.'
"Then I got to' interview
my idol, John Grice, for a
story I wrote about his and
Benson, Campbell's retire-
ment. Grice is the greatest
man, barring my father, that
I know. John Grice did more
to nurture my desire to
achieve and be a successful
human being than any other
teacher I've ever had. I'm
exceedingly thankful to have
met the man and been'his
friend. The next generation

of Walton High School stu-
dents will miss out for not;
being taught be that man.
Thanks, Mr. Grice, for every-
thing."
Both interns made friends
during the summer. Laken
said, "The staff at the Her-
ald has been like a family. I
have had extra moms, dads,
brothers and sisters to keep
me on track and self-confi-
dent throughout the sum-
mer."
Reid said, "I've made fast
friends with the Herald staff.
Gary Woodham was a great
boss. He gave us reporters
our space to write what had
to be said, but (as great
bosses should be) he was a
velvet hammer when it came
to the deadlines. I have the
utmost respect and admira-
tion for the man. Ron Kelley


became a soft-spoken advo-
cate and mentor; Bruce
Collier was an adept verbal
fencing partner. I'm amazed
at the breadth of his knowl-
edge; Pat Casey became a
confidant, a buddy, with,
whom I could share a mutual
love for comic books, and gi
ant robots, and a great sports
collaborator; Chuck Hinson
became my proverbial.big,
brother; Norma, Alisha,
Candace, Janice, and Sandra
were good to me and kept
things rolling smoothly. It's


nice to know that a large
group of women have your.
back at all times, and I never
doubted for a second that
they did."
Last week was Laken and
Reid's final week before they
leave for school. They return
to the hallowed halls of
learning with new friends,
Snew family and a wealth of
new experiences that will
help shape their young lives.
As Shakespeare said,
"Summer's lease. hath all too
short a date."

PERSONAL COMMENTS

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR



All-Star memories

Guest Editorial
By Ronnie E. Bell

Editor:
I would like to take a moment to thank several individu-
als for their support of the DeFuniak Springs 12-year -old-
all-stars. Although the team fell a little short of our goal, I
am very proud of the. 12 boys that represented DeFuniak
Springs Little League and I know everyone in the DeFu-
niak Springs area is proud of them s well.
I would like thank the DeFuniak Springs Little League
Board: Ellen McLean, president, Greg Brac k, vice-president,
Jean Supple, treasurer, Cory Godwin, secretary, Matt
Douglass, Sherry Bell, Larry Martin, Ronnie Murphy and
Jolenne Clenney for their support of little league and in
particular, the 12-year -old-all-stars. Also, I personally w ant
to thank them for allowing me to manage this special group
of boys. I will treasure the memories of being associated
with these 12 boys the rest of my life .
Next, I would like to thank the parents of the team. They
are the most supportive parents I ha ve ever been associ-
ated with during my eight years of little league They were
always willing to help in any w ay possible..It is easy to
understand why everyone complimented our team on their
behavior and how respectful they were because they learned
it from their parents and grandparents .
There are five'dads I wish to thank for everything they
did to coac h and support this team. They are Billy Burgess ,
Doug Cosson, Mark F orehand, Ed Orcutt and Bob Sloan.
These five dads dedicated themselves to this team during
the six weeks we pla yed in the district, sectional and state
tournaments. Our coac hing staff w as second to none com-
pared to the teams we faced.
I wish to recognize several moms that pla yed important
roles during the tournaments: Tiffany Murphy, score keeper,
Gennifer Bell, pitch count coordinator, Jolenne Clenney, me-
dia coordinator, Tammy Cosson and others that w ashed uni-
forms and whatever else w as needed. All of the moms were
helpful in supporting their sons and making sure they were
ready to pla y every game .
The community support we received county wide w as un-
believable. We had the largest crowds at every game no
matter if it w as in Niceville or Tallahassee. Each time were
played a local team, we outnumbered their fans and that
showed the support of our community to these 12 boys We
had people and businesses throughout Walton County do-
nate funds to cover expenses Businesses wished us well on
their business signs and Chief Adkinson ga ve the boys a
police escort when we left for the sectional and state tour -
nament. These are just a few things I sa. w during this time
and these are some of the reasons I am proud to call Wal-
ton County home and to be a part of a community like De-
Funiak Springs.
I can't forget to thank the local media who covered us
throughout the tournaments. Art Dees of WZEP, Reid
Tucker and P at Casey of the DeFuniak Herald Breeze and
Sonny Yates and P at Casey from. TV 24. I have to say a
special thanks to P at Casey, who attended all our games in
Tallahassee. He became a more than a reporter H kept up
with the statistics and told me who w as batting next for
the other team. Pat was a lot of help and we appreciate his
assistance.
As you can tell, I have not included one person who
coached the team in my letter as of yet. I feel that I need to
give Ronnie Murphy the recognition he deserves I have
known Ronnie for many years and ha ve coac hed against
him for the past five years but I have never had the oppor -
tunity to coac h with him until this year. For everyone that
knows Ronnie, it is easy to understand how committed to
youth athletics he is but he also is committed to coac hing
and teac thing children the right w ay to do things Ronnie
and I have spent six weeks together and were friends be-
fore the tournaments, but we are c loser friends toda y be-
cause of 12 boys and their experiences .
I want to thank Gennifer, Shannon and Brandon for put-
ting up with me for the past six weeks When I wasn't work-
ing, our lives revolved around baseball and I w ant to thank
them for allowing me the time to take advantage of this
opportunity.'
Finally, I wish to thank 12 boys for allowing me the op-
portunity to experience little league at its highest level.
The players are: Tyler Abbott, Brandon Bell, Zach Burgess,
Zach Carter, John Clenney Jr., Jesse Cosson, Zach Fore-
hand, Kenneth Lorenz, Christopher Murphy, Brennon
Orcutt, Kyle Sloan and DeShun Tucker. These boys are great
role models and ambassadors for DeFuniak Springs and
Walton County. We played in three tournaments and the
tournament director of eac h tournament told me we had
the best behaved and most respectful boys of any in the
tournaments. All of these boys addressed adults as thye
should and showed great sportsmanship whether they won
or lost.
It is understandable why these boys are the w ay they
are; it is because of their parents and grandparents .These
boys have been taught to be respectful, honest, fair and
good sports by their parents teachers and coac hes. They
have learned this lesson well. Each time we took the field,
I felt like I had twelve sons on the team instead of one I
saw the excitement in their eyes and I also sa w the disap-
pointment when they struck out or we lost. I have told eac h
of them and I wish to tell them again, thank you for allow-
ing me to coach them and learn from them. Also, I want to
tell them how much I love them and look forw ard to seeing
them play at the sc hool level in the future.


One thought I w ant to leave with the DeFuniak Springs
community and Walton County is to pla y at the state level
year in and year out, there must be a commitment from
everyone. We played against teams that had 280 12-year -
old boys to c hoose 13 All Stars from. DeFuniak Springs c hose
12 All Stars from 20 12-year -old boys. The Little Leagues
in Walton County are going to ha ve to consider combining
in some way in the future if we are to progress to the next
level of winning a state tournament and making the dream
of playing at Williamsport a reality I am happy about how
far we got, but I hope the teams behind us are not satisfied
and will work hard to win it all. Again, let me say thank
you to everyone that pla yed, coached and supported our
team.

Ronnie E. Bell

building looks horrible! It only takes one look to see that there
is something terribly wrong However, this is just one more in
a long, long line of mistakes that ha ve come out of City Hall
in the last two years
There's just no excuse except for the fact that the person
hired by the city to watch out for mistakes like this obviously
has no idea what she is supposed to be doing That comes as
no real,surprise This person w as the least qualified of the
three that were interviewed. She's still not qualified.
Starting with the Magnolia Cemetery disaster whenever
faced with a decision that's not covered in the manual, this
person has instinctively and unerringly done the wrong thing
every time Except for smiling for the camera, I don't know of
a single thing she's done in two years *
What's worse is that the City Council has blindly accepted
everything that's happened without a single objection. Sorry,
fellows the days of leaving everything to Mike Standley and
showing up twice a month to say a few yeas and na ys is over.
We can't afford to lea ve amateurs in c harge.
Fixing the Chautauqua building is easy Fixing our other
mistake is a little harder but one w ay or the other, either she
or the City Council has to go .
Mayor Carpenter thank you for standing up for what's right.
We're all behind you!

Editor:
The DeFuniak Red Sox and the P once-De Leon Tigers
have graced Walton County baseball fields since the begin-
ning of April 2007 with some enjoyable action-pac ked base-
ball games open to all in Walton County and beyond. The
professional teams ha ve a roster of 15 pla years who are
Walton county residents and are between the ages of 18 to
30, who we all know and ha ve watched since they were in
T-Ball. The Red Sox and the Tigers ha ve a 15-2 record and
have worked hard this season to sta y on top and bring
America' s favorite pastime to DeFuniak Springs and sur -
rounding communities for all to enjoy.
On July 10, 2007, the county passed a new ordinance
(#2007-09 Section 14) that has imposed fees for all county
.parks and recreation baseball fields which now requires
the teams to pa y $125 per game to use the baseball fields
at the Wee Care P ark and Douglass Crossroads Since the
Red Sox and Tigers ha ve prepared their season budget
before this ordinance w as passed, the budget does not al-
low for the additional cost to use fields in Walton County.
Since the teams are in the middle of their season it is sad
to know that the pla years, Walton County citizens will have
to pick up and play in another county because they simply
can not afford to pa y the county fees. The baseball fields
paid for by Walton County taxpa years will once again be
vacant and the fans of the Red Sox and the Tigers will
have to pic k up and tra vel to the games.
Don Graham Enterprise a new taxpa ying business in
Walton County, has been pa ying the overhead associated
with having professional baseball teams along with the
generous support of sponsors from Walton County and sur -
rounding communities, to bring this great entertainment
to the public and provide a place to send an enjoyable Sat-
urday and Sunda y afternoon. We have asked Walton County
officials to consider w aiving the fees this year to allow the
teams to complete the season in Walton County and con-
tinue to bring this recreation, sport to the fans of our com-
munity. This status of this request is pending .
The newly-passed county ordinance is causing hardship
to the players and our company The players have main-
tained the fields and do not require any additional staff
from the county. Walton County P arks and Recreation De-
partment has provided the maintenance and upkeep of the
parks in the past and now sees an opportunity to recoup
some of that cost by imposing this ordinance on the people
who use them. Well, if the people cannot afford the fee and
go somewhere else, it looks like we all lose in the end. Does
this mean that the county will pass an ordinance to ask the
citizens to put 10 cents in the swing set to make it work or
a quarter in the w ater fountain to make the w ater come
out?
I would like to ask that the fans and community support
their local talented baseball superstars! As mentioned ear -
lier, these are young adults who live in Walton County and
want to keep this sporting entertainment in Walton County
and play the professional sport of baseball locally Talk to
our county officials and let them know we need to be there
for the young adults of our community and give them some-
thing constructive and worthwhile to do in the great com-
munity known as DeFuniak Springs .
Respectfully,
Donald L. Graham
DeFuniak Springs

Editor:
I am writing to let you know that I agree with your edito-
rial about the front of the Chautauqua building and to let
Mayor Carpenter know that a lot of people are unhappy with
what has happened.
I have seen the photos that show how it looked originally ,
and the difference is striking The color and placement of
the new gutters really spoils the look of the building and
there's no reason why we should ha ve to settle for some-
thing that has never been that w ay before.
I don't know why the City Council allowed this ', but I ap-
preciate Ma yor Carpenter's efforts to fix this mistake It may
not seem like much to some people, but if we don't stop it
now, next time the building might be painted red or it might
be bric ked up.
As a DeFuniak Springs business owner and a DBP A mem-
ber, I vote we return it to its original appearance
Sincerely,
Bruce Rhodes
DeFuniak Springs


Editor:
At this very moment, there is a bill in the U.S. Senate
with 50 sponsors who w ant tobacco advertisement to be
put under the control of the F ood and Drug Administra-
tion. If this happens, the Department of Treasury' s Bu-
reau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms would be the moni-
tors of this new legislation.
This may sound all well and good to some but let's take
a close look at it from another direction.
Now, in order to purc hase firearms you must fill. Out a'
form called "Firearm Transaction Record. Paragraph
eight of this form reads in part, "An untruthful answer
may subject you to criminal prosecution. Eac h question
must be answered with a yes or no inserted in the box to
the right of the question. "
There are several questions in paragraph eight identi-
-fied by letters. Question D., is very important. It reads,
"Are you an unlawful user of, or addicted to marijuana or
any depressant, stimulant or narcotic drug or any other
controlled substance?"
I hope you got the last part of question, D., "or any other
controlled substance?" Tobacco, under the FDA, would then
become a controlled substance .
This is another attempt by the U .S. House/Senate to en-
force more gun control. This was tried in 1996 by the
Clinton administration, and was defeated by the newly
elected Republican-controlled Congress .
If you smoked, or have ever smoked, you may not be
able to purc hase a firearm if this bill is passed and signed
into law. Pres. Bush in not pro-gun.
These people ha ve no regard for the Constitution and/or
your rights under the Second Amendment. Write your con-
gressman and senators and ask them to help defeat the
bill, while you're still a citizen, not a comrade .

Miller's office, then Bill Nelson's and Mel Martinez' s office.

Grand jury indicts Mason for 1997 homicide COMMUNITY CALENDAR)


By BRUCE COLLIER
On July 30, a Walton
County grand jury returned
an indictment for murder
with "premeditated design"
against Fred Alan Mason, 45,
in connection with the 1997
killing of Lillian Mason, his
mother. The indictment
states that Fred Mason
killed Lillian Mason while at-
tempting to rob her, and that
he used a "brick, club, or
other blunt instrument.".
The case generated a
great deal of publicity in
1997. Lillian Mason's death
was determined to have been
the result of "blunt force
trauma."
A WCSO arrest report
made at the time of the inci-
dent stated that the Lillian
Mason appeared to have
been "bludgeoned to death."

First day for students is

Prior to finding her body,
deputies had arrested Mason
for "fleeing and attempting to
elude" in his mother's ve-
hicle. Bloodstains on Mason's
clothing led deputies to in-
vestigate the victim's resi-
dence, at 466 West Orange
Avenue in DeFuniak
Springs. Mason reportedly
lived in a small structure be-
hind his mother's house. Al-
though it was not mentioned
in the initial arrest report,
newspaper reports made at
the time indicated that .a
brick was found, "covered
with blood and hair," at the
scene of the incident.
Mason was originally in-
dicted in 1997, but the indict-
ment was set aside when a
court determined that Mason
was mentally incompetent to
stand trial. Mason was com-
mitted to the Florida State


Hospital, where he remained
until his release earlier this
year.
Arraignment will take
place on Aug. 14. Assistant
State Attorney Robert
Elmore will prosecute the
case. Elmore was not avail-
able for comment at press


time, but Assistant State At-
torney Greg Anchors said
that a decision would be
made prior to arraignment
whether the state will seek
the death penalty for Mason.
Florida law provides a sen-
tence of death or life impris-
onment for this offense.


INDICATED FOR MURDER is Fred Mason, 45, formerly
of DeFuniak Springs.

City Marshal establishes "Police Exploring" program


The DeFuniak Springs Po-
lice (DFSPD) City Marshal's
office has taken the first
steps in implementing a pro-
gram for the community's
young men and women,
called "Police Exploring."
Police Exploring is a ca-
reer education program for


young men and women who
are 14, and have completed
the eight grade, or 15 20
years old. This Police Ex-
plorer chapter, is intended to
provide the participating
youth with benefits such as
greater job awareness, en-
hancement of communica-
tion, planning and program


development skills, greater
commitment to service and a
sense of belonging to the
"right" group, among other
benefits.
The DFSPD's overall pur-
pose is to become more in-
volved with the community's
adolescent youth. City Mar-
shal Mike Adkinson has ex-
pressed an interest in what


he calls, "Our most vulner-
able citizens, our children."
The DFSPD office will
host an open house registra-
tion from 2 5 p.m. on Satur-
day, Sept.1, at the City
Marshal's Office (DFSPD
headquarters) located on
U.S. 90, downtown DeFu-
niak Springs. There are no
residency requirements, age

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, AUGUST 9, 2007

Walton Health Department


urges immunization for children


The Walton County
Health Department joins the
Florida Department of
Health and the Centers for
Disease Control and Preven-
tion (CDC) in promoting the
importance of up-to-date im-
munizations by recognizing
August as National Immuni-
zation Awareness Month.
"Immunizations provide
Floridians with safe and ef-
fective protection against dis-
ease," State Surgeon General
Ana M. Viamonte Ros, M.D.,
M.P.H. said. "With the new
school year and flu season
approaching, August is the
perfect time to remind fam-
ily members, friends, co-
workers, and neighbors to
update their vaccinations."
On August 1, the CDC
launched a national pre-teen
vaccine campaign recom-
mending that all 11- and 12-
year-olds receive the menin-
gococcal and Tdap vaccines.
The meningococcal vaccine


protects against meningitis
and its complications. The
Tdap vaccine is a booster
against tetanus and diphthe-
ria, which also protects
against pertussis ("whooping
cough"). The CDC also rec-
ommends all girls, ages 11
and 12, receive the Human
papillomavirus (HPV) vac-
cine, which protects against
the most common types of
cervical cancer. If pre-teens
have inadequate health in-
surance, parents should ask
their doctors or local health
departments about financial
assistance for vaccines.
Contact the Walton
County Health Department
or a primary care physician
to ensure immunization
records are current. The
CDC immunization sched-
ules list the ages for each
vaccine or series of shots.
Visit www.Immunize"
Florida.org to print out a
chart to keep track of these


shots. Because children are
particularly vulnerable to in-
fection, most vaccines are
given during the first five to
six years of life. Some immu-
nizations, including boosters,
are recommended through-
out adolescent and adult
years, while special vaccines
may also be administered to
international travelers.
Children should receive
vaccines against diphtheria,
influenza, tetanus, pertussis,
measles, mtimps, rubella,


chickenpox and polio. Adoles-
cents need vaccinations for
influenza, hepatitis A and B
and meningococcal disease.
Adult vaccines include influ-
enza, pneumococcal disease,
tetanus, and diphtheria. If
any shots are past due, con-
sult the catch-up schedule
and ask a doctor about get-
ting back on track.
Call the Walton County
Health Department for more
.information about immuni-
zations, 850-892-8015.


COMMUNITY CALENDAR

MILTON MEMORIAL BIRTHING CENTER will be cel-
ebrating its 31st anniversary on Sunday, August 12, 2007,
at the Flowersview Community Center in Flowersview, FL.

secure, and that prisoners
can be transported to and
from jail with minimal con-
tact with the public. "This is
being done all over the state,"
said Wells of the new tech-
nology. The present court-


house system is "like the
Dark Ages," he added.
"There's no way to compare."
In addition to judge's
chambers, clerk's and staff-
ers offices, and records stor-
age for civil and criminal
files, the courthouse has sev-
eral "hearing rooms," for non-
jury civil proceedings.
There's also an evidence stor-
age room, common areas for
staff, and rows of desks, ter-
minals, and storage cabinets
for employees. "It's more
than double the present of-
fice space," said Ingle.
When it opens, the court-
house will be accessible from
8 a.m. 4:30 p.m., Monday -
Friday.

44th year Peters Family Reunion celebration


By BIRDIE PETERS ADAMS
The Peters Family re-
united once again on Aug. 3 -
4 for their annual family re-
union celebration.
The Quitman and Mildred
Peters family from Florida
hosted this 2007 family cel-
ebration. The theme was a
"Great Fiesta" and the fel-
lowship hall was decorated
in bright colors and decora-
tions.
The reunion has been a
summer family tradition for
44 years and reunites the de-
scendants of Henry and Ozie
Turbeville Peters. Henry and
Ozie Peters were married on
Aug. 4, 1904. They lived in
the Hacoda and Smyrna
community, where they had
14 children. The Peters fam-
ily was not rich with worldly
possessions, but they did not
lack for anything of true
value. They were wealthy
in so many ways.
Quitman's family hosted
this year's "Great Fiesta" cel-
ebration beginning on Friday
night. Quitman and Mildred


have gone to be with the Lord
so their children, Eloise,
Patricia, Diane, Ricky, Karen
and their families sponsored
and organized the celebra-
tion.
It is tradition to begin the
great fellowship on Friday
evening at the Hacoda Com-
munity Center. They pre-
sented gifts to each of the
surviving sisters, and gifts to
all family memJers in atten-
dance Friday night.
On Saturday, family mem-
bers gathered at Camp Vic-
tory for a meal and more
happy times together. Camp
Victory dining room was
decorated for the "Great Fi-
esta".
Every family brings extra
food to share so there was
enough food for lunch and
dinner. The center of the des-
sert table held a large sheet
cake with wedding pictures
and pictures made through
the years of Mama and Papa.
This occasion and meal
was blessed by Dewayne
Geoghagan. Then Eloise


Long and Patricia Stone,
Quitman's daughters, served
as masters of ceremony and
shared "thoughts from the
heart" about what it means
to be a member of the Peters
family.
They asked members from
each family to share frbm the
heart and all the news up-
dates of their families with
the group.
Then pictures were taken
of both individuals and fam-
ily groups. The large group
picture of 111 people in-
cluded all family members,
and friends. They had their
own family photographer,
Kenny Philippus, from West
Palm, FL.
The family is blessed
with many talents and skills.
Some family members
were swimming in the pool,
canoeing, and playing games
as well as sitting under large
trees and in the dining room
just visiting with loved ones
and friends.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, AUGUST 9, 2007

While reading the Psalms
recently, I was blessed by
116:9, which reads, "I will
walk before the Lord in the
land of the living." The
Apostle Paul had that in
mind when he wrote
Ephesians chapter five. In
reading it, we find that the
Lord encourages us to walk
in love (v.5).
God is a person of love. He
loved in such a manner that
He gave His Son for sinners.
And Christ so loved that He
gave His life for us sinners


(John 15:13). Also our Lord
commanded His disciples to
relate to each other in terms
of love (John 13:34,35). In
reading 1 John, we find that
because of God's great love
for us, we are obligated to
relate to each other in terms
of Christian love.
Not only are we encour-
aged to walk in God's love, we
are encouraged to walk as
the children of light in
Ephesians chapter five. As
the children of light, we are
to separate ourselves from


Walking in


light and love

By DR. ROBERT M. JAYE


the moral evil that is associ-
ated with spiritual death. We
are to live with those atti-
tudes and habits which are
taught in the Bible. Live a
life that is in the light of
God's faithfulness and gra-
ciousness toward us. In Mat-
thew five, we are told to func-
tion as the light of the world.
This makes possible life,
love, and hope for the world.
Let us therefore walk in
the wisdom of the Lord in
light and love. James 1:5
reads that true wisdom is a
gift of God. If we want to
walk in light and love, we
must do it wisely. God's kind
of wisdom may come slowly,
but it is clearly taught in the
Bible. We must reverently
and responsibly study God's
Word and communicate with
Him in prayer. We will find
that wisdom is the need of

everyone.
The Christian's daily
walk his daily conduct is
more important than the
Christian's talk. It is the
walk that makes real the
talk. The world needs to
hear the testimony of those
who know God by faith, and
whosQ walk is as much light
and love as their talk. To
walk with God is a walk on
a happy road of life. It is a
way that becomes more
wonderful as the years go
by.

We should be like Enoch
of Genesis 5:24. He "walked
with God: and he .was not;
for God took him." Be true
to God. He is true to you as
much as you need. Love
Him and come to love oth-
ers as well. God bless us all
to walk in love and light.

battle with cancer.

By CHUCK HINSO.'1
Still riding high on a na-
tional championship this
past season, the Gators re-
turn to the practice field this
Sunday knowing only they
are ranked in most of the top
ten rankings and sitting at
the No. 3 spot in the coaches'
poll. Everything else seems
to be up in the air.
Urban Meyer's Gators
seemed to have this problem
two years ago, but to the sur-
prise of the nation, pulled out
a winning team that eventu-
ally made it to the big dance
this past January and
blasted the perfect season of
Ohio State. The dream team
had given nightmares to the
Buckeyes and set itself up for
another national champion-
ship ring.
But with only 20 upper-
classman, 10 seniors and 10
juniors, those hopes for a re-
turn championship look sur-
prisingly slim. They will be
looking to the freshman class
for leaders as only two defen-
sive starters return.
One of the first tasks of the

coaching staff will be to de-
termine who in the sopho-
more class will step up to the
plate and take on key lead-
ership roles. Meyer says that
it will be a difficult task and
he needs to know who can
handle themselves and how
they will react to difficult
situations.
Florida had one of the top-
ranked recruiting classes
this year, but several situa-
tions concerning some of the


course this time of year is
that it tends to fall in the af-
ternoon thunder-shower rain
belt, so getting on the course
early is the key to complet-
ing a round.
If you are in for sight-see-
ing and golfing, an outing to
St. James Bay, east of
Carrabelle, reveals a hidden
gem in the .golf world. The
course, which is also an
Audubon International
member, has some of the
smoothest greens along the
Gulf Coast and is located just
off of U.S. 98. Bring lots of
golf balls. This course is not
for beginners and first-time
golfers will find some of the

new recruits off field, has the
Meyer camp and others rais-
ing a few questions about dis-
cipline.
Tim Tebow is one under-
classman that has risen
above the rest and has taken
his place as one of the proven
few in the Meyer camp. He
is slated to be starting quar-
terback for Florida.
The Gators open their sea-
son on Sept. 1 against West-
ern Kentucky.

Marianna Oaks, which is
located east of Cottondale, is
a nine-hole course off of U.S.
90. The course has struggled
to get its greens back in
shape after the dry winter,
but offers nice fairways and
a course that can be easily
walked for a little exercise as
well, though maybe not in
the heat of summer as the
course is one of the few that
doesn't provide free water to
customers all the time.
On the whole, northwest
Florida remains a golfer's
paradise if one knows where
to look.

$4,500. The latter fare is
equivalent -to $79,000 in
present-day dollars.
The exhibit begins with a
schematic drawing of the
vessel, a scale model, and
photographs of the captain,
Edward Smith, and other
notable passengers and
players in Titanic's brief
history. Next to Smith's
photograph is a quote from
the veteran skipper, "I
cannot conceive of any vital
disaster happening to this
vessel. Modern shipbuild-
ing has gone beyond that."
Judging from the ship's
specifications and the
White Star line's adver-
tising, Smith's observation
was well in keeping with
the general sentiment.
Titanic was designed and
built to be the jewel of the
White Star line. Smith's
uneventful seagoing history
led the board of directors to
handpick him to command
Titanic's maiden voyage.
Smith intended to retire to
spend time with his family.
He would not.
In addition to photos and
framed posters, the walls
bear an hour-by-hour
progress of the voyage,
including more than a few
reports of icebergs. Despite
this, Titanic reportedly
maintained a straight
course, leading to the fatal
collision that led to the
ship's sinking in two hours
and forty minutes.

items on display are wine
and beer bottles. The
luxury liner carried some
1,500 bottles of wine and
20,000 of beer to provide for
all classes. Visitors can
read the dinner menus,
which offer roast squab
with cress and peaches in
Chartreuse jelly for first
class, and roast pork, boiled
potatoes and plum pudding
for third-class diners. The
exhibit also shows
recreations of staterooms
and bunks, including
sanitary accessories.
Many of the personal
effects of the passengers
remained in their traveling
cases, made from .tanned
leather. Because of this, the
exhibit displays some
remarkably preserved
items. In glass cases are
calling cards, books,
cosmetics, sheet music, a
man's wool suit and
suspenders, a woman's
cotton gloves, and a
perfumer's sample case,
from which 62 bottles still
containing scent were
recovered. There's also an
unassembled model
airplane-kite, box and
advertisement sheet
included.
Among the more unusual
examples of retrieved items
is a set of china gratin
dishes, displayed as found
on the ocean floor, in
perfect rows. The reason for
this was that the crockery
was stored in a wooden
chest. The chest
deteriorated around the
dishes, which remained in
place until found. Other
items include ship fittings,
tools, portholes, and a
candle-holder. Many of
these were found twisted
and warped, owing to the
immense stress incurred
when the 882.5-foot,
46,328-ton vessel broke in
two before sinking.

S^ .-..


The final part of the
exhibit contains a list of all
passengers and crew,
divided into classes, and
listed as "saved" or "lost."
In all, 1,523 passengers and
crew died, while 705
survived. This reporter's
assigned passengers, the
Chapmans, were both listed
among the lost.
Also in this section are
photographs of Ida and
Isidor Straus, the famous
couple who refused to be
parted, even to save Ida's
life. Millionaire Benjamin
Guggenheim put on
evening clothes to wait for
his end "as a gentleman."
Ship's band leader Wallace
Hartley ordered his
musicians to keep playing
on deck to soothe their
fellow passengers. The
band reportedly played
"Nearer My God to Thee,"
which .Hartley had
intended to have played at
his funeral. Neither the 33-
year-old Hartley nor any of
the musicians survived.
Also among the lost were
Father Thomas Byles, a
priest said to have led his
fellow passengers in prayer
in the last moments before


the ship went under.
At -least one survivor
found a way to make a
profit. On display is a photo
of actress Dorothy Gibson,
who topped her survival by
appearing in a stage
"recreation" of the disaster
titled "Saved From the
Titanic." The cool-headed
Gibson performed wearing
the same torn and water-
stained dress she had worn
on the ship.
The display does a good
job giving a general
overview of the tragedy,
including blown-up photos
from newspapers of the day.
The artifacts and relics also
paint a more personal and
human portrait, a brief
snapshot of 1,523 lives,
interrupted.
"Titanic, the Artifact
Exhibition" can be seen
Tuesday Saturdays from
10 a.m. 8 p.m., and
Sunday from 12 6 p.m.
Admission is $12 for adults,
$8 for children ages 5 12,
and $9 for persons 65 and
older. Photography is not
permitted. The Visual Arts
Center is located at 19 East
Fourth Street, Panama
City. For details, call 850-

Busch roars


through Pocono


By CHUCK HINSON
His winless streak has fi-
nally come to an end. Kurt
Busch celebrated his 29th
birthday and also his first
win of the racing season this
past Sunday at the Pennsyl-
vania 500 in Long Pond.
It was all the No.-2 car as
he maintained the edge from
the first lap of the race, all
the way to the wiener's circle.
This was his first win in 51
attempts and placed him in
the 12th spot in the Chase
points giving him his first
top-seeded win since March
26, 2006.
Busch missed the Chase
last season after qualifying in
2004 and 2005 after he had
100 points stripped away
from him in June for penal-
ties and was knocked down
to the 17th spot. With the win


on Sunday, he turned a 13-
point deficit behind Dale
Earnhardt Jr, into a 29-point
edge.
Crew chief Pat Tyson has
been calling all the shots for
the team. He said to expect
more of the same in the re-
maining weeks of NASCAR
racing.
Busch led all but 25 laps of
the 500 lap race and the win
gave him his second career
victory at the Pocono track.
This past weekend's come-
back and 175-lap lead was a
Pocono record.
Earnhardt roared in be-
hind Busch in second place,
with Denny Hamlin in third
and Jeff Gordon and Jimmie
Johnson rounding out the top
five spots. Tony Stewart was
unable to continue his win-
ning streak and finished in

nity surgical suites for their
guidance and instruction of
students in the OWC pro-
gram.
Also at the event, Traci
Coates was named as this
year's OWC Outstanding
Surgical Technology Student.
Carter explained that Sur-
gical Technologists are re-
sponsible for preparing the
operating room by opening,
operating and maintaining
sterile and non-sterile equip-
ment, surgical instruments
and other supplies required
for surgical procedures.
They also assist in provid-
ing direct patient care within
the surgical environment.
Surgical technologists must
be able to perform under
pressure in stressful and
emergency situations. They
must also possess a stable


temperament, be very re-
sponsible, caring, patient,
detail-oriented, quick, yet
accurate, and have a great


deal of manual dexterity and
physical stamina.

ing for admission for the next


class of Surgical Technology
students, contact the OWC

OWC breaks


ground on


South Walton


College Center


By JEFFREY POWELL
On a balmy August 6
morning, local dignitaries,
including Representative
Don Brown and Trustee Al
Donaldson joined Okaloosa
Walton College (OWC) Presi-
dent Bob Richburg for a
ground-breaking ceremony.
The ground breaking marked
the start to the seventh col-
lege center location for OWC.
The new location is located'
just south of the South Wal-
ton Courthouse Annex on
U.S. 331.
The first phase of the
south Walton center will con-
sist of four buildings all un-
der the same roofing struc-
ture with about 11,000


square feet of administrative
and classroom space to serve
the growing south Walton
area. The south Walton loca-
tion will be the second OWC
campus in the county. The
Chautaqua Center in DeFu-
niak Springs being the other.
The new location will
house the Choctawhatchee
Basin Alliance of OWC now
located at the Niceville cam-
pus. The CBA is particularly
active in south Walton with
several initiative including
its Dune Lakes work to help
preserve rare coastal dune
lakes.
The south Walton center
will also provide a home for
the new Allyn C. Donaldson

"This facility will match


up well with the fine South
Walton High School,"
Richburg said. "The centers
personality will be shaped by
the people of south Walton,
and the centers criteria will


be shaped by the peoples
needs."
Richburg expects the first
classes to be held at the cen-
ter to be late 2009 or early
2010.

By DOTTY NIST
A cessation of building
permit issuance has been in
place since June 28 for the
Driftwood area; on August 14
an official moratorium on
building permits for the area
will be considered. Driftwood
is a development on an ar-
rowhead-shaped peninsula
bordering Buck Bayou north
of Sandestin.
On July 24, the Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC) held
the first required public
hearing for the moratorium
and examined a draft mora-
torium ordinance. A final de-
cision on an official morato-
rium, which may run
through Nov. 30, is expected
at a second public hearing
scheduled for August 14.
Consideration of the ac-
tion is the result of concern
that further building could
worsen drainage and access
problems, brought to the at-
tention of commissioners by
existing residents and
homeowners. There have
been complaints to commis-
sioners on these matters
from the public dating back
more than two years.
The moratorium is being
proposed to continue through
November 30, the end of the
hurricane season. The mora-
torium ordinance adds that
the several-month period
would "give the Board (of
County Commissioners) and
the County Administrator
sufficient time to study the
possible drainage and access
problems and arrive at a so-
lution."
Driftwood Estates resi-
dents have undertaken liti-,
gation aimed at opening up
Shipwreck Road, currently
walled off. to provide an al-
ternate access for their sub-
division, which currently has
only one entrance/exit, a road

A REQUEST BY one of those "little shops that everyone loves," tucked within a neighbor-
hood, recently led to a broader discussion on neighborhood commercial uses in Walton County.


Land use amendments


up for final vote


By DOTTY NIST
Two small-scale land use
amendments previously dis-
cussed on July 24 are set for
a final decision next week.
Two public hearings before
the Walton County Board of
County Commissioners
(BCC) are required for the
amendments, and the second
of those hearings is sched-
uled for the regular BCC
meeting on August 14.
In one small-scale amend-
ment, a land use classifica-
tion change is being sought
for property that is the loca-
tion for an existing gift shop,
Magnolia House on Magno-
lia Street in Grayton Beach.
The 0.16-acre property is lo-
cated within a residential
subdivision classified as NPA
(neighborhood planning
area)/ residential preserva-
tion. The requested classifi-
cation is village mixed
use(VMU). VMU provides for
a maximum density of 10
units per acres; however, con-
sidering the size of the prop-
erty, no additional structures
could be added to the lot.


The stated purpose for the
change is that it would allow
the business to rebuild on the
property in the event of
structural damage. Under
the current classification, the
business is nonconforming
and could not be replaced in
this type of situation,
Lois La-Seur of Walton
County Planning and Devel-
opment Services commented
that this business has oper-
ated for "a very long time" as
a nonconforming use and
that it does not seem to have
caused problems.
A homeowner in the same
subdivision who commented
on the proposed change did
not raise objections to the ex-
isting business but was not
in favor of a land use change.
Her concern was that the
change might "open a door"
for the gift shop to "become
something else" that would
not be compatible with the
residential preservation area
in which she had bought hero
home. "I would like to see the
neighborhood remain as it
is," she said.


District 1 Commissioner
Scott Brannon assured :her
that her concerns would be
addressed in public session
in the event that a change
from the current use we re to
be proposed.
District 5 Commissioner
Cindy Meadows commented
that what sometimes occurs
is that a home with in a
neighborhood gets turned
into a "little shop that e very-
one loves" and then a new
owner uses that historical
use as a basis to ask for" "up-
zoning."
Pat Blackshear, county
planning and develop:inent
services director, said that.it
is her understanding that the
covenants and restrictions
for the neighborhood where
the shop is located do provide
for some neighborhood com-
mercial uses.
La-Seur noted that ;a "fair
amount" of similar noncon-
forming uses exist in WValton
County. She suggested a look
at creating a land us:;e cat-

flooding.
Discussion of the matter:
on July 24 included a letter
from Charles Gauthier of the
state Department of Commu-
nity Affairs (DCA) to Walton
County Planning and Devel-
opment Services Director Pat
Blackshear.
The May 14 letter raises
concerns that "development
activities" in Driftwood Es-
tates may be "inconsistent
with development order con-
ditions."
On July 24, Lane Smith,:
an attorney representing thfi
Greater Driftwood Estates
Homeowners Association,
urged the BCC to work with-
DCA to insure that drainage,
measures are adequate and'-
that access in and out of the
subdivision is not subject to
flooding.
"The concern we have is
that the (moratorium) ordi,.
nance does not go faf'
enough," Smith said.
District 5 Commissioner
Cindy Meadows noted that
the county has a plan for
drainage correction on roads
under the county's, purview
and is proceeding to do "what
needs to be done." Work with
property owners is underway
to get a historic drainage
easement reopened in the
subdivision, she added.
Meadows said she had
suggested the moratorium

raised as a means to address
flooding there, which could
be exacerbated by additional
building during hurricane
season.
Attorney George Ralph
Miller, representing develop-
ment company Olson & As-
sociates, told the commis-
sioners, "You in effect have a
moratorium now," which he
called "illegal."
Olson is developing a new
phase of the subdivision in
the interior of the Driftwood
"arrowhead."
"My client is in the build-
ing business...and you are
not allowing him to build,"


Miller said, adding that this
action "becomes a taking at
some point."
Miller said that neverthe-
less his client is "willing to
come to the compromise
table."
A Driftwood lot owner also
had problems with the mora-
torium. She said she has a
buyer for her lot on the pe-
rimeter of the subdivision
but that the buyer wants to
build immediately. She won-
dered what areas the mora-
torium would include. Cur-
rently no building permits
are being issued for any por-
tions of the Driftwood arrow-


head.
Meadows responded that
she anticipates that quite a
few property owners will
want to be excluded but that
the BCC is "trying to accom-
modate what we've been
asked to do" by residents.
"This is the tricky part of
the moratorium," she said.

The second public hearing
on the proposed moratorium
is scheduled in conjunction
with the August 14 regular
BCC meeting, which begins
at 4 p.m. and is to take place
at the South Walton Court-
house Annex.

Citizens of the Black
Creek area and Seagrove
Beach are well aware of the
dangers incurred when forest
fires encroach upon private
dwellings. Earlier this
spring, both of these loca-
tions experienced wildfire
firsthand. Black Creek resi-
dents dodged a bullet in May,
but Seagrove property own-
ers were not so lucky the next
day when three homes were
destroyed by flames and an-
other dozendamaged.
With these incidents fresh
in their memory, Walton
County Emergency Manage-
ment, in partnership with
South Walton Fire District
and the Florida Division of
Forestry (FDF), recently
hosted a workshop designed
to educate citizens and devel-
opers about the dangers of
wildfire.
The July 31 workshop was
coordinated by Pandion Sys-
tems, a Gainesville-based
consultant for the FDF. The
workshop was titled "Living
on the Edge" and covered a
variety of topics designed to
help protect and prevent
property loss from inevitable
wildfires. The workshop was
held at the Coastal Branch
Library in Santa Rosa Beach.
According to Pandion Sys-
tems representative Peter
Colverson, fire is a natural
part of the environment in
Florida. For thousands of
years, fire has been shaping
the landscape and wildlife of
our area. Natural and
manmade fire is what cre-
ated and maintained the
park-like stands of long-
needle yellow-heart pine
once found throughout the
panhandle of Florida.
Populations in Florida in-
crease daily. This increase
and the desire to live near
wilderness areas puts more'
and more people in the path
of wildfire. "Approximately
one-third of the population

school as soon as possible to
begin the process of register-
ing for classes.

able Monday through Friday

live in areas considered ru-
ral," said Colverson.
With these facts in mind
the workshop gave sugges-
tions to those homeowners at
risk of fire.
"A defensible space of at
least 30 feet around your
home is important," said
*FDF Public Information Of-
ficer Bob Rhea. 'There should
not be any pine straw used
next to the dwelling and tree
limbs should be trimmed
back as well." Rhea also sug-
gested using native vegeta-
tion instead of intolerant ex-
otic and invasive species.
Rhea stressed that residents
who do not manage their


landscapes are putting them-
selves at risk.
The workshop also pro-
vided information designed
to create and promote entire
'fire-wise' communities. Such
communities would comply
with rules such as multiple
ingress and egress and road-
ways large enough to accom-
modate firefighting equip-
ment.
"Citizens that use/good

sures increase their chances
of surviving a wildfire," said
FDF Area Supervisor Bruce
Smith.

Gulf Cemetery association

elects new board of directors


By JEFFREY POWELL

Close to 40 people recently
attended the Gulf Cemetery
Association annual meeting.
The unusually large turnout
was in some part due to the.
election of a new Board of
Directors. Cemetery plot
owners were also to decide
whether or not to accept a set
of by-laws.
The Gulf Cemetery
Association has come under
fire during the past year due
to a proposal that would
allow cemetery property to be
used as ingress and egress to
an adjacent 'property. The
plan involved approximately
2.5 acres of the cemeteries
northern most boundary.
As a result of this
arrangement, a group of
concerned lot owners sued
the association to have the
plan stopped.
Judge Howard LaPorte
ruled in favor of the citizens
and the roadway plans were


halted.
Also, the judge ordered
'that the former board file
with the state of Florida
articles of incorporation for
the purpose of incorporating
the Gulf Cemetery
Association as a not-for-profit
corporation. Along with the
filing of the articles, the
board of directors were to
prepare and adopt by-laws
for the corporation. The by-
laws would provide for the
election of officers and a
seven member board of
directors.
During the August 4
meeting, the by-laws' were
accepted in a 108 to 4
decision. New board
members elected are
President William Freeze,
Vice President Marge
Crawford, Treasurer William
Hodge, Secretary Jeffrey
Powell, Curt Clauson,
Charles Moll and Richard
Loverne.
Although there had been


some tense times between
the old board and concerned
citizens, both parties have
vowed to put any problems in
the past.
"The transition will be
good," said past association
Chairman Ed Moreau."If
nothing else, there has been
a lot of interest in the
cemetery. 'There is no
animosity at all."
Newly-elected board
President Bill Freeze noted
that any new attention needs
to be on the cemetery and its
day to day operations.
"We want to keep the
people informed and aware
that we have a business
plan," said Freeze. "A
cemetery plot is something
that is bought once but must
be maintained forever."

Freeze also vowed that the
transition will not effect the
cemeteries duties. "There will
be no impact on services,"
Freeze stressed.


SINFONIA CONDUCTOR DEMETRIUS FULLER conducts the Unity Orchestra in a
combined concert in Erbil, Iraqi Kurdistan.



Sinfonia conductor Demetrius

Fuller returns from musical

cultural exchange in Northern Iraq


Sinfonia conductor
Demetrius Fuller recently
returned from Erbil, in the
Kurdish Autonomous Region
of northern Iraq (Iraqi
Kurdistan), where he partici-
pated in a U.S. government-
sponsored cultural exchange
program with local musi-
cians. Selected by American
Voices Executive Director
John Ferguson, Fuller was,
one of two conductors chosen
to work with Iraqi orchestral
musicians. This is reportedly
the first such project in the
history of Iraq.
For nearly two weeks,
Fuller and other American
artists and faculty members
worked with Iraqi artists in
a cultural exchange that fea-
tured over 350 musicians,
dancers and children. The
American Voices' program
culminated in two days of
concerts featuring jazz, clas-
sical ballet, hip hop,
children's theater, Iraqi folk
dancing and music leading
up to orchestral offerings fea-
turing the Iraqi National
Symphony, Erbil Orchestra
and Suleimaniya Chamber
Orchestra. The three com-
bined into the "Unity Orches-
tra" with more. than 120
members drawn from the
three orchestras. The project


was sponsored in part by the
U.S. Embassy in Baghdad,
the U.S. Department of
State,' the Kurdistan Re-
gional Government, Ministry
of Culture and U.S.- based
American Voices.
' Fuller was able to work
with all -three orchestras
separately in addition to con-
ducting the Iraqi National
Symphony and Unity Or-
chestra on the final concerts.
Fuller commented on the ar-
tistic and political signifi-
cance of the project. "This
project is important on so
many levels. From a political
and certainly an artistic
standpoint, American Voices
was able.to bring together
Iraqi artists who even within
their own country, share po-
litical and geographic bound-
aries. It was an opportunity
to put aside these inhibitions
and work together to create
and learn and share their
art. The 14-hour work days
and endless rehearsals and
chamber music coaching are
perhaps the most memorable
and cherished musical mo-
ments of my career; the final
concert was a result of their
hard work and dedication."
The project was hosted in
the Ministry of Culture and
750-seat concert hall in the


city of Erbil. The region has
been conflict-free since the
early 1990s, and features
modern buildings, western-
style shopping malls and a
$300+ million modern inter-
national airport under con-
struction.
International news agen-
cies, including al Jazeera,
Dubai TV, CNN and ABC In-
ternational were in atten-
dance and provided live feeds
of the performances through-
out the Middle East. Digni-
taries from Iraq, the U.S.
Embassy in Baghdad and the
U.S. Department of State
were also in attendance. A
documentary to be aired on
PBS was filmed during the
project, and is scheduled to
air in. the United States in
early 2008.
American Voices is' a
Houston, Texas-based not-
for-profit company, created in
1993. The original mission of
American Voices was to pro-
vide American cultural pro-
gramming to the newly-open
societies of Central and East-
ern Europe and the former
Soviet Union. Since then,
American Voices' geographic
range has grown to over
200,000 audience members
in 79 countries on five conti-
nents.

pageant, or is ,it the
mother who is se-
cretly wanting to
wear the crown?

Miss America, Miss Uni-
verse, Miss USA and other
pageants, have for years been
gracing the world's televi-
sion screens beginning in
September and running
through January. Networks
compete for the chance to air
the events with the hopes
that major sponsors like Lo-
real, Maybelline and Cover
Girl will spend millions in
advertising dollars during
the airing of the various pag-
eants.
From glitzy Atlantic City,
to the Mayan ruins of Mexico,
the ladies are flown away to
exotic and exciting ports and
destinations all over the
world, to compete for the
crown and hundreds of thbu-
sands of dollars in merchan-
dise. But all the glamour has
to start at an early age, and
who do you think is the
pusher?
Many mothers, grand-
mothers, etc., envision their
little angel with the crown on
her head. They picture the
glamour shots, the newspa-

per clippings and the televi-
sion interviews about their
little one. It's like an addic-
tive drug..
In the South, beauty pag-
eants are almost a staple for
any little girl. From the mo-
ment their ears are able to
hold cubic zirconia-studded
ear rings, they are catapulted
down the runway and into
the spotlight to be judged and
critiqued by a panel ofjudges,
many of whom have never
even been to a beauty pag-
eant.
Movies such as Drop Dead
Gorgeous and Little Miss
Sunshine have brought to
light just how far parents
will go to get the crown on
their daughter's head. The
movies were almost in the
same line as the cheerleading
movie where the Texas
mother killed off the compe-
tition before try-outs.
Just how far will these par-
ents go to have a little prin-
cess or queen in the house-
hold?

If you have ever attended a
local pageant, it is almost as
competitive as a college foot-
ball or little league game. The
competition is fierce and the
parent takes every call of the
game and every decision by
the judge personally.
As recently as this year, a
beauty pageant in Louisiana
got out of hand when the girl
that won, was the child of a
mixed marriage. The other
mothers were shocked that
the judges made the decision


to crown
the 11
year-old
girl and
(Ii)S not their
Sdaugh-
ters who
they con-
S : pure
blood -
line.
The
end result was two of the
three judges having their
cars trashed and tires flat-
tened, while the little girl
and her mother were run off
the road the following day
and their house set on fire.
It is shocking to realize the
extent and even the cost that
some parents pay for their
little princess to be in some
of these pageants. Numerous
parents have had
fundraisers, parties and set-
up accounts to raise money
for the child, as if they were
trying to raise funds for a
medical cause.

But it comes down to the
basic question of who really
wants the title and crown
more? Is it the little girl who
maybe just wanted to play
softball and hang out with
her friends, or is it the
mother who wants to have
the crown at the house so she
can put it on when her
daughter is at school?
Of course every parent is
proud of their child and ev-
ery parent has a responsibil-
ity to encourage and give
their child a better life than
what they might have had
when they were growing up.
But there has to be a time
when both have to say
enough!
For if the child doesn't say
it and the parent doesn't ac-
knowledge the problem, don't
worry, there are millions of us
out there that would be more
than happy to help you both
find a life!

Creek and Lafayette Creek, Class Ill
Waters of the State, Unclassified
Shellfish Harvesting Areas, Latitude:
30'29'11.19"N/ Longitude:
86008'11.89"W, Walton County. The
procedures for petitioning for a hear-
ing are set forth below.

A person whose substantial inter-
ests are affected by the Department's
action may petition for an adminis-
trative proceeding (hearing) under
sections 120.569 and 120.57 of the
Florida Statutes. The petition must
contain the information set forth be-
low and must be filed (received by
the clerk) in the Office of General
Counsel of the Department at 3900
Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Sta-
tion 35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-
3000.

Because the administrative hear-
ing process is designed to redeter-
mine final agency action on the ap-
plication, the filing of a petition for an
administrative hearing may result in
a modification of the permit and
lease, or even a denial of the appli-
cation. Accordingly, the applicant is
advised not to commence construc-
tion or other activities under this per-
mit/lease until the deadlines below for
filing a petition for an administrative
hearing, or request for an extension
of time have expired.

Under rule 62-110.106(4) of the
Florida Administrative Code, a per-
son whose substantial interests are
affected by the Department's action
may also request an extension of
time to file a petition for an adminis-
trative hearing. The Department may,
for good cause shown, grant the re-
quest for an extension of time. Re-
quests for extension of time must be
filed with the Office of General Coun-
sel of the Department at 3900 Com-
monwealth Boulevard, Mail Station
35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000,
before the applicable deadline. A
timely request for extension of time
shall toll the running time period for
filing a petition until the request is
acted upon. If a request if filed late,
the Department may still grant it upon
a motion by the requesting party
showing that the failure to file a re-
quest for an extension of time before
the deadline was the result of excus-
able neglect.

In the event that a timely and suf-
ficient petition for an administrative
hearing is filed, other persons whose
substantial interests will be affected
by the outcome of the administrative
process have the right to petition to
intervene in the proceeding. Interven-
tion will be only at the discretion of
the presiding officer upon the filing
of a motion in compliance with rule
28-106.205 of the Florida Administra-
tive Code.
In accordance with rules 28-
106.111(2) and 62-110.106(3) (a) (4),
petitions for an administrative hear-
ing by the applicant must be filed,
within 21 days of receipt of this writ-
ten notice. Petitions filed by any per-
sons other than the applicant, and
other than those entitled to written
notice under section 120.60(3) of the
Florida Statutes, must be filed within
21'days of publication of the notice
or within 21 days of such notice, re-
gardless of the date of publication.

Under section 120.60(3) of the
Florida Statutes, however, any per-
son who has asked the Department
for notice of agency action 'may file a
petition within 21 days 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 for an administrative
hearing or pursue mediation as pro-
vided below within'the appropriate
time period shall constitute a waiver
of those rights.

A petition that disputes the mate-
rial facts on which the Department's
action is based must contain the fol-
lowing information:

(a) The name and address of
each agency affected and each
agency's file or identification number,
if known;
(b) The name, address, and tele-
phone number of the petitioner; the
name, address, and telephone num-
ber of the petitioner's representative,
if any, which shall be the address for

tion of how the petitioner's substan-
tial interests are or will be affected
by the agency determination;
(c) A statement of when and how
the petitioner received notice of the
agency decision;
(d) A statement of all disputed is-
sues of material fact. If there are
none, the petition must so indicate;

timate facts alleged, including the
specific facts that the petitioner con-

agency's proposed action.

A petition that does not dispute
the material facts on which the
Department's action is based shall
state that no such facts are in dis-
pute and otherwise shall contain the
same information as set forth above,
as required by rule 28-106.301. Un-
der sections 120.569(2) (c) and (d)
of the Florida Statutes, a petition for
administrative hearing must be dis-
missed by the agency if the petition
does not substantially comply with
the above requirements or is untimely

Back to school safety tips


With the start of each new
school year, students are once
again rushing to be on time,
parents are getting them on
their way, and drivers are
going about their business, but
experts say all could. heed
some advice on safety. "This is
a critical time of the year,"
noted Ray Palermo, director of
public information for
Teachers' Insurance Plan.
"Drivers need to re-
acclimate themselves to
having children on and near
the road, particularly at rush
hours. And, both children and
their parents need to get back
into their good traffic safety
habits." He offered several
tips from their Safety
Information Center.,
Seven tips for walking or
biking to school are: walk with
a friend; pay attention to all
traffic signals and crossing
guards. Never cross the street
against a stop light; cross only
at crosswalks, and never run
into the street from between


parked cars; look left, right,
and over your shoulder for
traffic before crossing a street,
and continue to check each
direction; make sure drivers
see you by making eye contact
with them. If riding a bicycle,'
scooter or skateboard to
school, always wear a helmet
and ride in the same direction
as traffic. Walk your bike if
crossing a street.
Tips for school bus riders
are: Do not play in the street
while waiting for the bus; line
up facing the bus, not along,
side it; after getting off the
bus, move out of traffic; wait
for the bus driver to signal you
to cross the street. Walk away
from the front of the bus so the
driver can see you.
Tips for parents and drivers
are: Everyone should wear a
seatbelt. and children should
be .in age and size appropriate
car seats: stay focused on
driving and don't be distracted
by kids in the car or with other
activities; slow down in school


zones. Driving just five mph
over the speed limit increases
both the risk of hitting a child
and the severity of any
injuries. Yo u
never know ,if children
crossing the street are paying
attention, so remain stopped
until the child has crossed not
only your lane of traffic, but
the adjacent lane as well.

Never pass a vehicle that
has stopped at a crosswalk, as
they may be waiting for'
someone to cross; do not pass a
school bus when its red lights
are flashing, even if it is on the
other side of the street; use
extra care in areas where
children may enter the road
from between parked vehicles
or other things that block
drivers' view of the road. And,
watch out fori bicycles.

driver and passenger safety go
