By BRUCE COLLIER
A Walton County Sheriff's
Office (WCSO) payroll ac-
count was reportedly robbed
of $22,000 in June, the result
of an e-mail scam known as


"phishing." Some $6,000 has
been retrieved, leaving a net
loss of $16,000, WCSO re-
ported.
Sheriff Ralph Johnson
and WCSO Capt. Linda


Clemmons said that the ac-
count was one of several held

DFS City Council holds


Illegal aliens


and the law
(Part one of a series of articles on the impact of illegal 1
aliens in Walton County)


By ALICIA LEONARD'
Despite a recent Associ-
ated Press report of a 38 per-
cent drop in illegal aliens de-
tainees at the U.S. Mexican
border, local law enforcement
agencies are still trying to
find ways to cope with the lo-
cal illegal immigrant influx.
Illegal aliens can be
charged by federal agencies
with entry without inspec-
tion (EWI), since it is illegal
to enter the U.S. without
proper documentation, but
local law enforcement is hav-
ing a hard time getting fed-
eral agencies to define on
what grounds and to the ex-


tent one can be detained
without proper identifica:-
tion, unless they break local
or state laws.
DeFuniak Springs City
Marshal Mike Adkinson say is
the city's police officers are
still having problems getting
the federal agencies to step
up to the plate where illegal
aliens are involved. "I've spop-
ken with many other, local
agencies, such as the police
chief in Crestview and su.:r-
rounding towns, and we a re

sponses from the same agen-

budget
By ALICIA LEONARD
The DeFuniak Springs
City Council held a budget
workshop on the afternQon of
August 14 to discuss salaries,
revenues and expenditures.
The DeFuniak Springs police
department presented its
budget as well. City Manger
Kim Kirby said it is a "bare-
bones budget, with no fluff or
extras."
Mayor Harold Carpenter
requested a vote on the
rollover of $25,000 from last
year's budget that was
marked for use to start the
senior center, into this year's
new budget. He asked for the
council to consider the senior
center project getting an ad-
ditional $25,000 in this
year's projected budget to
bring the total amount to
$50,000 in funding to get the
senior center off the ground.
Carpenter requested that the
senior center be given the
same level of recognition that
other organizations, such as
Little League, command in
the budget. The council
agreed by unanimous deci-
sion on this subject.
The meeting moved onto
revenues and expenses,
Kirby said all departments
were in agreement on their


workshop
proposed budgets. Kirby re-
ported that property and li-
ability insurance rates went
down. The workman's com-
pensation and liability fig-
ures were not available yet
for the council and health in-
surance rates will not be
known until March 2008.
Items included in next
year's budget included five
new employees, a full-time
police officer, a part-time po-
lice officer as a job share po-
sition, a new fire fighter and
and two new water depart-
ment employees.
The city is looking at an
option to lease a boom truck,
and city hall will not upgrade
its sprinkler system or re-sod
the area around city hall and
various airport projects are
on hold or deferred for the
time being.
Council member James
Coffield asked about the con-
dition of the fire department,
employee situation. Kirby re-
sponded, "We are working on
getting one additional
firefighters per shift, so three
firefighters would be on duty
per shift." Kirby also
brought up the need for the
water department to get a-
new sump pump and said it
was included in next year's


budget. Additional round
tables for the Chautauqua
Hall of Brotherhood, as well
as brick pavers and a picnic
table were among the miscel-
laneous costs being covered.
Professional training and
staff development and a
$2,000 scholarship through
Okaloosa Walton College
(OWC ) were included in the
discussion. Possible grant
opportunities for downtown
improvement were d4s-
cussed, though no money was
available in the budget. Park
improvement through grant
funds was mentioned. The
status of grants for park res-
toration will not be known
until May or June of 2008.
Salaries were brought up
next to the council. The
year's projected salaries ac-
cording to the salary study
provided last year included a
four-to seven-percent in-
crease, as well as a possible
$50 dollars extra per year of
employment or merit bonus
on anniversary of said em-
ployees date of hire. Discus-
sion ensued as to whether
$50 dollars each year as a
bonus was enough to keep
qualified employes under the

Paxton Town Council considers


annexation, code enforcement issues


By BRUCE COLLIER
The August meeting of the
Paxton Town Council was
brief but well-attended. The
proceedings began at 7 p.m.,
with council members Bobby
Kemp, Ann Sexton, Bill
McRae, Jenice Armstrong,
and Joe Melton all present,
along with Mayor Wanda
Smith and Loriann Bytell,
city attorney.
Following routine matters
such as approval of last
month's minutes, bills, and a
request for partial waiver on
a water bill, the council pro-
ceeded to its main agenda.
Property owner Todd
Schweizer presented a re-
quest to annex a portion of
his land to be used as a land-
fill. Council member McRae


raised a question about the
existence of an "island" of
property in the middle of
Schweizer's land that :is not
owned by Schweizer. Before
the matter went further, at-
torIney Bytell advise d the
council that Schweizer has to
apply to the city planner, who
would go over his appli cation
with him in detail. Council
member Sexton said she
would like to know more be-
fore proceeding. Bytell said
that the city planner, Latilda
Henninger, would advise
Schweizer on compliance in
land use. When an at tendee
raised objections about build-
ing "a dump," Bytell said that
this was not the time ifor pub-
lic comment. "We'd be put-
ting the cart before the


horse," said Bytell.
Still another attendee be-
gan questioning Schweizer
about fees and other details.
Bytell reiterated that these
were premature questions,
and suggested the council
table the matter. The coun-
cil unanimously voted to
table the item.
Christa Merrifield-
Mitchell, president of Paxton
Dixie Youth (PDY), made a
presentation summing up
the summer's accomplish-
ments, focusing on improve-
ments funded or secured by
PDY for the new softball and
T-ball fields. Merrifield-
Mitchell distributed a
printed list of "2007 Improve-
ments." The first part of the
list included a newly-con-


structed T-ball field and dug-
outs, expansion of existing
field "C" to accommodate a
softball field, sod replace-
ment, shelving in press box
and concession stand, safety
cap on fields, concession
stand sinks, and labor sup-
plied by the PDY board. The
total cost improvements
listed were $14,229. ,
The second part of the list
totaled items secured by Wal-
ton County Parks and Rec-
reation and the Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC), in-
cluding bleachers, sod, pub-
lic address systems, and ciga-
rette barrels. The total was
$13,081.
The third part of the list
noted three scoreboards, se-


cured by 2007 Dixie Youth
Administration, at a total
value in excess of $30,000.
This brought the total value
to $57,310, according to the
list.
Merrifield-Mitchell
thanked the council for the
opportunity to play, adding
that the PDY intends to hold
a "work day" every third Sat-
urday of the off-season to
maintain the field. McRae in
turn praised the PDY for its
promptness in getting every-
thing built and ready. "I
think that's very commend-'
able," he said.
Professional baseball
owner and promoter Don
Graham was next, asking the

council's permission to play
his "fast-pitch baseball"
teams in Paxton. Graham
brought documentation of his
teams, adding that his are
paid players.
Council member Melton
said that the Paxton ball
fields are too small for pro
baseball. He added that the
Paxton High School fields
might be the right size, but
that Graham would have to
apply to the school for use of
those fields. Graham
thanked the council, and left
his business card.
Generators, recently in-
stalled and ready to be paid
for, were the next item. The
council was advised of the
need to use a fuel additive to
extend the generators' life-
time, and voted unanimously
to authorize final payment
for the generators and nec-
essary parts.
Sports returned to the
agenda when the council
next agreed to look into a re-
quest by Christa Merrifield-
Mitchell to install batting
cages at the ball field. Bytell
agreed to draft an interlocal
agreement for Pee-Wee foot-
ball, similar to the existing
one for baseball, and submit
it to the council at next
month's meeting.
Mayor Wanda Smith's
monthly report followed. "We
need a budget workshop."
Smith said she would find a
suitable date for the work-
shop. Bytell had nothing to
add in her attorney's report.
In department reports,
council member Jenice
Armstrong said that the Pee-
Wee football organization
had requested free use of the
town's agricultural center for
a fundraising rummage and
yard sale. The council was
advised that only non-profits
can have free use of the
building. Possible scheduling
conflicts were also discussed,
and Armstrong agreed to
work out the details with the
football organization.
McRae next advised the
council that the city had sev-
eral locations that needed
code enforcement for clean-
up, adding that some were
county and some city prop-
erty. All needed clean-up, and
McRae said, "we can't point
fingers until we clean up our
own property." The council
had already agreed to let the
county handle enforcement.
Bytell advised that filling out
and submitting complaint
forms to the county was the
first step in enforcement, and
that she had the forms.
Ann Sexton pointed out
that there had been a com-
plaint about a camper trailer
parked on city property.
Bytell agreed to prepare a
written notice for law en-
forcement officers. Sexton
had also received a request
for a speed bump on Nance


emony on Aug. 16 at t'he
Mossy Head Community
Center. A gathering of
friends, family and water
works employees gave Hay es
a surprise reception, followed
by dinner and the present a-
tion of the award. MHW'W
board president Tom Terrell
called Hayes "ambitious annd
quick to learn," and praised


his "unequalled rapport"
with water works customers.
"He's a valuable asset, a good
man," said Terrell.
FRWA Vice President
Bruce Morrison presented
the award. Morrison com-
mented that MHWW has
won every award offered by
FRWA for a water works of
its size.

Bobby Kemp said he would
defer to former council mem-
ber Tommy Mathis on post-
storm procedures. Mathis
has been attending meetings
with EMS personnel regard-
ing seeking reimbursement
for storm damages. He has
also discussed with school of-
ficials the possibility of using
Paxton school buildings as
post-storm shelters. The
shelters are opened in a set
order, he said, and Paxton
could be the last one on the
list. Shelters must also be
staffed by certified atten-


dants and volunteers. "They
[EMS] will train us," he said.
"We need to get that started."'
Mathis also asked the
council to consider installing
some kind of identifying light
on the water tank near the
helicopter landing field. A he-
licopter recently landed in
Paxton for a night pick up,
and "came pretty close" to
hitting the tank, he said. The
tanks are under the height
limit that legally requires a
light, but the council agreed
to consider the matter. Esti-
mated cost of lights would be
between $2,000-$3,000.

Courthouse

wing

complete
The new $12.5 million

Courthouse in DeFuniak
Springs is complete, and two
county government services
in the older parts of the his-
toric building will move in to
the new space Friday, Sept.
28, the clerk of the court and
all court operations.
Although the courthouse in
DeFuniak Springs will be
closed on Sept. 28 for the
move, all county government
services will continue at the
South Walton Annex on U.S.

"None of our government
services will be interrupted
on that day," says County Ad-
ministrator Ronnie Bell, "but
citizens wishing to do busi-
ness with the clerk's office or
who are instructed to appear
at a court hearing will need
to be prepared to visit the
South Walton Government
Annex on Sept. 28."
The clerk of the court and
court operations are only two
of the government services
locating to the new 80,000
square-foot addition.
Several weekends follow-
ing September 28, the Tax
Collector, Supervisor of Elec-
tions and Property Appraiser
offices will relocate to the
new wing and eventually to
the additional 10,000 square-
foot renovated sections of the
courthouse previously va-
cated by the Clerk of the
Court and court operations.
Announcements of those
moves will be issued once the
moving dates are finalized.
County workers will con-
tinue to install new furni-
ture, train employees on the
security system, complete
the communications net-
work, and oversee minor
"touch-ups" until Sept. 28.
The courthouse will re-
open October 1.

EDITORIAL

PERSONAL COMMENTS

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR






Editor:
We are writing to express our concerns regarding the bla-
tant lack of enforcement of the Walton County Ordinance
2003-09 designed to prevent, prohibit, and provide for the
abatement of excessive and unnecessary noise in order to
protect the health, safety, and general welfare of people of
the county. These concerns center around the excessive noise
generated at Cafe 331 and bar and our complaints made to
Walton County Code Enforcement and Sheriff's Depart-
ment.
Our concerns are Code Enforcement has not responded
to complaints in a timely manner.
The first call to Code Enforcement to log a complaint was
made on April 27, 2007. Code Enforcement officers, took
the first noise reading on July 22, 2007.
Kevin Hargett, Code Enforcement Coordinator, gave us
his cell phone number on July 17, 2007, to call the upcom-
ing Sunday, if the music was too loud. On July 22, 2007, we
called the number at 5:30 p.m., 5:45, 6:00, 6:15, 6:30, and
6:45 p.m. Each time a recording stated the wireless cus-
tomer was unavailable. At 6:55 p.m. Kevin Hargett returned
our call and called his officers. The officers arrived at 8:45
p.m.
Calls made every 15 min. starting at 5:15 p.m until 7 p.m
to Kevin Hargett's cell on July 28, 2007 were never returned.
Code Enforcement has provided us with misinformation.
On June 8, 2007, Code Enforcement stated they would
call the next day and provide us with a number to call when
the music was too loud. They did not.
On June 12, 2007, Code Enforcement stated they would
issue Cafe 331 and bar a written complaint. They did not.
On June 12, 2007, Code Enforcement stated that it is the
responsibility of the Sheriffs Department to take noise read-,
ings at night. Code Enforcement Officer's can't come be-
cause it is a safety issue.
On June 18, 2007, Code Enforcement stated that the bar
can be cited "on the spot" and yet on Aug. 8, 2007, when a
reading was finally taken and the bar far exceeded the lim-
its the bar was not cited "on the spot" and the band was not
shut down.
On June 18, 2007, Cindy Meadow's office reports to us
that Code Enforcement told them the 33 Cafe and bar is
not over the noise limit.
Code Enforcement reports on June 18, 2007, that they
have a noise meter and so does the Sheriff's Dept. On June
18, 2007, Lt. Farris reports the Sheriff's Department's noise
meter was picked up by Code Enforcement because Code
Enforcement had let the certification of Sheriff's deputies
lapse.
Code Enforcement is unorganized, unprepared, inefficient,
and lacks knowledgable leadership.
In the middle of June, Code Enforcement sent their meters
off to be calibrated.
The requirement of the homeowner to foretell when a
violation of the ordinance would occur for Code Enforce-
ment to complete their duties is ludicrous.
Code Enforcement staff are unable to respond due to
scheduling and unavailability. The coordinator lives in Can-
tonment, FL. The officer assigned to our case resides in
Navarre, Florida. The other officers live north of Defuniak
Springs. How can someone understand the need of the
people of the county if they don't live here?
Code Enforcement Coordinator has been uncivil and un-
sympathetic to the needs of the county constituents.,
By June 25, 2007, Code Enforcement responds to our com-
plaints with the statement that it is our fault they haven't
been out because we couldn't give them a date when we
knew the noise would wake us up.
Code Enforcement accused us of being unconcerned with
their safety by asking them to come to our home and take a
noise reading.
When on June 22, 2007, Kevin Hargett finally returned
our six calls, which had been prearranged, he stated he
would try to get up with his people but we shouldn't expect
much response because we waited so late to call. We started
calling at 5:30 p.m. He returned our calls at 6:55 p.m.
On June 28, 2007, we tried again to call Kevin Hargett and
his phone number was off all evening. Our neighbor, Amy
Stewart, met with Kevin Hargett the next day. He reported
to her he didn't have his phone on because we didn't call
him during the week to tell we wanted to try again, even
though the officers the past Sunday arrived after the band
quit playing.
A Code Enforcement officer was at our home from 6:30
until 8:30 p.m. on August 5,2007. He was able to take read-
ings inside and out. The readings for the bass noise gener-
ated by Cafe 331 and bar exceeded the acceptable increase
allowed by two times. The Code Enforcement Officer asked
us to wait until Tuesday to contact Kevin Hargett because
he would be out on Monday. On the following Tuesday at
11:45 a.m. Carol Davis made phone call to Code Enforce-
ment. She was told he was in a meeting but they would tell
him to call. Kevin Hargett never returned the phone call.
We had to leave town for the rest of the week for a family
funeral and did not have the opportunity to follow up with
Code Enforcement. Upon return home on the following Sun-
day the band was playing again. And, again, there was no
one to call. Eddie Davis stopped in to see Kevin Hargett on
Monday, Sept. 13. After over three months of complaints,
finally getting an officer out to our home to noise taking


readings, and proving to Code Enforcement there is a prob-
lem, Kevin Hargett decided it wasn't worth it to write the
bar a citation. He stated he had contacted the owner of the
bar, again, and had been told the bar had a month to go on
their contract with this band and after that time they would
be closing for good due to construction on Hwy. 331. So, we,
Walton County taxpayers and active voters, as decided by
Kevin Hargett, are to endure the noise for the next month
and be happy about it because the bar had decided to close.
Do the rights of citizens come second to businesses? We
had no idea that it si up to the Code Enforcement Coordi-
nator which codes are enforced and which one's are not.

EDITOR's COMMENT


What tax cuts?
By RON KELLEY

Ask nearly anyone in Walton County and they'll tell you
that there is less money to supply this year's local govern-
mental budgets. Ask the Walton Chamber of Commerce, who
had to abandon their Attainable Housing Center, or the Eco-
nomic Development Council of Walton County, a private com-
pany that relies on public funds. If the Walton County Com-
missioners follow through with their planned budget cuts,
the EDC could be in danger of closing altogether. Even the
South Walton Fire District has reduced its budget and mill-
age rate.
That's why I've been surprised by the actions of the DeFu-
niak Springs City Council and the city administrative staff.
Apparently, they didn't get the memo. At a time of widespread
belt-tightening throughout Florida, they're giving themselves
hefty raises.
At the city's last budget workshop, City Manager Kim Kirby
unveiled her recommendations for staff salaries, including
her own. Wow!
All the department heads got major raises. Some, as in the
case of city Financial Director Sara Bowers, are long overdue
and still fall short. Others are open to debate. One undeni-,
able trend is that while the chiefs got big oiaises. the Indians
(you know, the ones that actually do most of the work) got the
short end of the stick again. In fact, Kirby hasn't even worked
out the details of the worker's salaries -just administration's.
One idea put forth for a five- to 10-year employee was a
bonus of $300 a year. That's right after working for the city
for five years, they would be eligible for a staggering $300
that they could keep for their very own. It fairly boggles the
mind.
Not surprisingly, Kirby is far and away the top money-




Editor:
Several questions come to mind regarding the proposed
sex offender ordinances in DeFuniak Springs. For example
"Why?" Sure, the finding of facts mentions 'numerous occur-
rences' around the state, but without going into specifics. What
events have occurred in DeFuniak Springs involving regis-
tered offenders living near parks and schools and abducting
children willy-nilly? Oops. Council failed to mention those
because there aren't any to mention. Imagine that.
Seems the council also says 'the evidence' indicates that
registered sex offenders have an 'alarmingly high' recidivism
rate. What evidence? If all those registered offenders are so
prone to re-offending, why isn't the county jail full of them?
In reality, the 'evidence' paints a different picture. A compre-
hensive nationwide study by the U.S..Department of Justice
showed that over a 10-year period, only 3.5 percent of sexual
offenders were convicted of a new sex crime. By contrast rob-
bers, burglars and drug offenders tended to have rates well
above 60 percent. Closer to home, a 2004 study by the Office
of Program Policy Analysis and Government Accountability
showed that from 1999 until the study only 1.05 percent of
over 12,000 Florida registered offenders considered for civil
commitment had been convicted of a new sexual crime.
Florida has a sex offender registry, community notification
and a website for a reason. That' being that an informed pub-
lic is a safe public. If the people of DeFuniak Springs have
the names, addresses, vehicle information and photos of ev-
ery registered offender in the city at their fingertips, who re-
ally cares where they happen to live? The residency restric-
tion ordinance is nothing more than a case of passing laws
'because we can,' rather than 'because we need to.' ,
On the other hand, the second ordinance has some sem-
blance of sensibility. Nobody wants a convicted child molester
hanging out at the park offering to push the kids on the swings.
But the ordinance fails to address a very important fact. That
being that many registered sex offenders happen to have chil-
dren and/or grandchildren that probably would enjoy a visit
to the park. Will the council deprive those children, in effect
punishing them for the 'sins of their fathers?'
Hillsborough County gave residency restrictions a serious
look and after hearing the re a evidence on the subject elected
to instead limit where offenders could 'go' or 'be' rather than
where they 'live.' Offenders are prohibited from loitering or
being in locations that exist for children's activities unless
they are there with their own child. Perhaps DeFuniak
Springs would be better-served with such a common-sense
ordinance?
Council should also remember that half of the offenders in
the city are under the direct supervision of the Florida De-
partment of Corrections. Not only do they already have a re-
striction on where they can live, their activities are closely
monitored. Should the council insist that there 'must' be an
ordinance even if it doesn't do any good, at least they should
include an exemption for offenders on DOC supervision.

Santa.Rosa Beach


maker at City Hall. The path to that financial pinnacle has
been interesting. When she was hired in 2005, she got a start-
ing salary of $65,000. Just four months later, she got a five-
percent salary, increase. In 2006, after only one year in a
new job, she got a nine-percent raise, supposedly based on a
salary study. That's a 14-percent pay hike in one year.
This year, it's a mere seven-percent increase. Totaled,
that's a 21-percent pay increase in only two years, to over-
see a town of less than 6,000 residents.
(The rest of us are in the wrong job.)
The interesting thing about that salary study is that in
the original summary salary survey data, submitted Aug.
22, 2006, the survey minimum salary for the city manager
was $45,147. The median or midpoint salary was $64,195 -
a few hundred dollars short of her actual starting salary
and about $3,100 less than what she was already making at
that point. The survey maximum was $82,240.
However, when the final compensation study report was
presented to the City Council (and approved), the minimum
salary for the city manager position had jumped from $45,000
up to $64,000. The midpoint salary was now $86,000 and
the maximum salary was up to a whopping $109,000. Kirby's
latest raise will put her at $79,507 still less than the "new"
'midpoint salary yet almost at the top of the original maxi-
mum salary range.
Hmmm.
Wait a minute, you say, aren't the raises supposedly in
keeping with surrounding cities? Well, let's take a look at
that. Kirby's examples were Chipley, Crestview, Fort Wal-
ton Beach, Milton, Niceville and Panama City Beach. Ac-
cording to population figures, with only one exception, ev-
ery one of those towns has a greater population than DeFu-
niak Springs. In fact, Chipley was the only example cited
that was smaller than DeFuniak. At about 3,500 people, a
city manager in Chipley with five years' experience makes
$64,000 and none of the examples were for less than four
years' experience. Some had as many 36 years on the job.
Milton has a population of about 7,000,. the city manager
has 10 years' experience and makes only $73,000 that's
$6,000 less than Kirby's new salary.
Now, I understand that everyone wants to make a lot of
money, but when, it's my blood, sweat, tears and tax dollars
that are paying for it, I'd like to see a little financial respon-
sibility. Please don't treat my tax dollars like manna from
heaven or like a "found" credit card with no limit.
Kirby called this, a "bare-bones budget, with no fluff or
extras."
Uh, that's a joke, right?



Editor:
We are presently and have been in extended drought. The
recent rain we've received has soaked into the ground be-
fore mosquito breeding has had a chance to occur in the natu-
ral environment.
However, the rain that has fallen does stay in the artifi-
cial containers such as tires, birdbaths, clogged rain gutters,
tarps, cans, buckets, drain plates beneath planters, wheel-
barrows, boats, etc. that we all leave around our homes.
The smallest amount of water is enough to provide the
needs for container-breeding mosquitoes.
The biggest culprit providing the nuisance is the mosquito
called Aedes albopictus, commonly known as the Asian tiger
mosquito. This mosquito is black with a white stripe on its
back, bites in the morning and afternoon, and prefers to bite
around the lower legs. This mosquito has adapted and evolved
to humankind's bad habit of providing containers that col-
lect water. We've provided their homes(containers), their
protein for egg production (blood), and a protected habitat
(the eves of our houses or beneath raised structures).
We need to change our behavior!
Pesticide spraying does not control this mosquito. Only
the elimination of its breeding habitat (artificial containers)
will control this mosquito. In fact it is one of the few mosqui-
toes we can control without using pesticides.
Place birdbaths in sunlight, the water gets too warm for
larva to survive, plus mosquitoes don't like sunlight, they
love shady areas.
Do whatever you need to eliminate the water source, turn
it over, punch a hole in it, cover it up, or throw it away. Don't
just empty a container and leave it in the weather. This mos-
quito lays its eggs above the water line and they can stay
viable for years. If the container fills with water, the eggs
will hatch starting a whole new generation of nuisance.
In summary, this mosquito can be controlled, but it must
be done by the community by eliminating artificial contain-
ers, not by using pesticides. Pesticides against this mosquito
are a band-aid, elimination of containers is the cure.
Do your part to protect you, your family and your neigh-
bors!

By BRUCE COLLIER
Lori Yates of Juniper Lake
is still in shock over the ap-
parent torture and killing of
three of her family's cats.
Yates said that she and her
husband found a total of
three family pets on Friday,
Aug. 17, all killed.
"It was horrible," said
Yates. "I didn't know there
were such horrible people out
there."
Yates called Walton
County Sheriff's deputies to
investigate when she found
the first cat. Yates described
the cat as having been
"burned with a blowtorch" on
its face and rear. Her hus-

band found two others later.
Both were reportedly killed,
though Yates was not aware
of how it was done. "My hus-
band wouldn't let me see
them," she said.
Yates and investigators
were able to follow a trail of
footprints and discarded ma-
terial that may have been
used in the burning. "We
know who did it," she said,
adding that the deputies told
her they were following up on
the investigation. "I want
them to sweat."
The Yates have several
other pets, both cats and
dogs. "We're keeping them
inside now," she said.

cies. I get a different answer
to the same questions every
week," Adkinson said.
One of those agencies is
Immigration and Customs
Enforcement (ICE), a pro-
gram that works under the
Department of Homeland
Security (DHS). The last'
time Adkinson received an e-
mail from ICE on June 25,
2007 stating that (ICE) only
had two detention and re-
moval agents stationed in
the entire state, One agent is
in Panama City and one in
Jacksonville. When asked if
the city's police force is re-
ceiving any help from other
government agencies, he em-
phatically replied, "No, we
are not. We have asked for
clear criteria from multiple
agencies to help this process
move along and even when
we follow what changes week
to week, the federal agencies
won't follow through. We
have been denied help from
border patrol and customs
assistance. We are now look-,
ing at a population in the
DeFuniak Springs area alone
that numbers between 1,000
to 1,500 illegal aliens."
The quandary of illegal
aliens hits the local taxpayer
through a vicious "cycle of
cost" as described by
Adkinson. 'Let's use a traf-
fic accident as an example,"
he went on to explain. "First
we have to dispatch an officer
to the scene at cost to the tax-
payer. If there is no proper
identification, then they can't
have a valid drivers license
or car insurance. We then
spend an exorbitant amount
of time trying to figure out
their identity. The taxpayer
pays more. Then we have to
transport them to county jail,
where the taxpayers get to
pay to house and feed them..
We then fingerprint them
under the closest name or
identity we can find. They
then are scheduled court
time and that takes time and
money from the court's dock-
ets. The taxpayer pays again.
The suspect is then given a
bail amount and a court date
is set. These suspects often
don't return for the court
date set and a warrant is is-
shed for their arrest and ifwe
do get a chance to arrest that
individual again, we start
the cycle all over again."


Many illegal aliens turn
back up in the system due to
being repeat offenders. "And
keep in mind," Adkinson
added, "if they stole
someone's Social Security
number, the warrant will be
issued for that person, not
the identity thief and illegal
alien."
Adkinson says that iden-
tity theft is the most rapidly
growing crime in our country
and is, in large part, perpetu-
ated by illegal aliens being
employed by businesses that
turn a blind eye. "If an em-
ployer knows that the appli-
cant is supposed to be 46
years old by the birth date
associated with his Social
Security number, and he has
a 20-something person
standing in front of him, he
knows something is wrong."
When asked if recent
strengthening of Social Secu-
rity employer notices and
fines will help, he responded,
"Maybe, but we need larger
government to help us en-
force the laws already on the
books."
The taxpayer pays in
many other ways as well. Il-
legal aliens use local emer-
gency rooms for primary
care, place strains on local
social services.By sending a
majority of their money back
home and without paying in-
come taxes, they don't rein-
vest in the local economy.
Insurance rates rise for
valid drivers from car acci-
dents perpetuated by unli-
censed drivers. Adkinson
said these are all baseline
drains on the taxpayer. He
continued, "These cost do not
include the cost of injuries. If
the illegal alien is injured in
an accident, which happens
on numerous occasions, and
I take him out to Healthmark
or he needs Life Flight, God
forbid, there is $15,000, his
hospital stay, up to and in-
cluding intensive care, life
support and surgery, and he's
not going to pay. He gets out
from that DUI accident he
was possibly involved with,
the taxpayer pays to incar-
cerate him, provide him an
attorney and an interpreter'
the court has to provide that
will never be recovered by
the taxpayer."
Adkinson was also quick
to point out that his depart-


ment works hard at not pro-
filing citizens who have en-
tered the country legally or
illegally. He says, "The
people who should really be
infuriated by this situation
are the legal immigrants who
have gone through the paper-
work and time and money,
and played by the rules to
become legal citizens. I ap-
plaud those people and those
are the type of individuals we
want in our community, but
they are paying, as well, for
a segment of the population
that doesn't want to have to
play by the same rules they
did. We want people who play
by the rules to live in our
city."
The taxpayers in the De-
Funiak Springs have clearly
spoken, he says, and want
something done about the is-
sues at hand. "The federal
government has got to step
up and do their duty, but
since they won't, we have to
do the best we can with the
resources available to us.
This has become a daily is-
sue for us."
The police department is
hoping to get funding from
the county to send at least
one officer to immigration
school sometime in the fu-
ture, but that means being
short that officer for five
weeks during training. The
stress placed on Adkinson's
already understaffed and
overworked force is burden-
some, he said. Officers are
often dispatched in the
middle of the night by a 911
call from a non-English-
speaking caller over a domes-
tic disagreement or argu-
ments fueled by alcohol. The
caller is often in distress and
needs help. The local police
department has no Spanish-
speaking officers and no
funds to hire interpreters,
yet officers have to, bear the
responsibility of trying to
work through these situa-
tions to the best of their abili-
ties.
Adkinson had one citizen
tell him he shouldn't bother
with the issues since it isn't
his responsibility and he
can't stop it. "That's ludi-
crous," he said. "I can't stop
speeding, but I will give you
a ticket if I catch you and I
will protect the public. That's
my job. All we can do is re-
main flexible in our solutions
and keep our shoulder to the
grindstone on this issue and
not back away from it, and
something will give."
Adkinson also feels that
the public will eventually
turn against officials who are
not helping or handling the
situation. He explains,
"things will change when the
voters get together and start
the grassroots movement to


make the higher-ups in our
gover ,ment responsible for
this issue and takes the bur-
den off the cities, and coun-
ties and the taxpayers at the
local levels. When people
start signing their names to
petitions, government starts
listening."
Adkinson vows to con-
tinue to try and weed
through the gray areas con-
cerning separation of federal,
state and local law enforce-
ment. "We continue to do this
because it's hard and because
it's the right thing to do."
Once a person of suspi-
cious origin gets into the lo-
cal legal system by being ar-
rested for a misdemeanor or
felony, agencies seen to have
a much smoother relation-
ship and a better outcome
from working together. Wal-
ton County Department of
Corrections Director Danny
Glidewell is having more suc-
cess at establishing a work-
ing relationship with ICE.
This is in part due to The
Criminal Alien Program
(CAP) that "focuses on iden-
tifying criminal aliens who
are incarcerated within fed-
eral, state and local facilities,
thereby ensuring that they
are not released into the com-
munity by securing a final
order of removal prior to the
termination of their sen-
tence," according to the ICE
website.
When a person is booked
into the county jail or correc-
tions facility in Florida, their
name and fingerprints are
sent to the main office at the
Krome Service Processing
Center, in Miami. Before


DeFUNIAK SPRINGS City Marshal Mike Adkinson


they can post bail, they must
be cleared through the CAP
program. If their name, fin-
gerprints or social security
card number causes a report
to be generated through the
CAP search, then a detention
order is issued to the correc-,


tional facility that they can-
not be released until it is
cleared through the main
federal office in Miami. If
detention is warranted, then

Office (DRO), a division of
ICE, becomes involved.
According to Glidewell,
"There are currently 22 ille-
gal aliens being housed un-
der detainers," which makes
up 10 percent of the new jail's
population. The charges
range from driving without a
license to assault and battery
and felony drug charges. The
cost to house these illegal
aliens runs about $60 a day,
with the price going down as
numbers move up due to the
dispersion of overall cost.
Glidewell says that he is now
in the process of completing
paperwork that will allow
unpopulated areas of the new
jail to be used as a holding
center for ICE until the sus-
pected illegal aliens can be
processed through immigra-
tion and deported.
Wakulla County does it
currently, he said. This will
help offset the cost of hous-
ing local illegal aliens until
they can serve their time for
offenses they have been
charged with locally. Agents
from ICE usually visit the
jail "around every two weeks
and we have a good working
relationship and good com-
munication," said Glidewell.
Other new costs the jail is
facing is having to republish
prisoner handbooks, as well
as standard paperwork in
Spanish to accommodate the
illegal aliens and Spanish-
speaking-only detainees.
Many correction officers are
attending beginning Spanish
classes as well.
After completion of the pa-
perwork needed for the Wal-
ton County Jail to be used as
an ICE facility, the jail will
have to undergo an inspec-
tion by ICE before being ap-
proved.
Director Glidewell shared
an Aug. 9 memo he had re-
ceived from the ICE main of-
fice, detailing changes and
updates they were making in
their policies, which includes
adding more field offices and
agents in this area one in
Tallahassee and one in Mo-
bile. Glidewell believes the
new Mobile office, when up-


and running, will be their
main point of contact.
Glidewell stressed his desire
to work with all agencies.
"We're glad to work with
other agencies at every level
to control the problem," he
said. He also noted that en-
forcement (where police offic-
ers are on the front line) and
detention (like the Walton
County Jail) are like "apples
and oranges," where the law
applies. Jails can't decide
charges, he said. That is why
the problem falls to local law
enforcement to have to make
arrests on viable charges
that will stick. According to
an official press release from
the Walton County Sheriffs
Office (WCSO), dated Aug. 7.
2007, the department has an
ICE-trained officer." InApril
2005, an investigator from
WCSO graduated from the
U.S. Immigration and Cus-
toms Enforcement (ICE)
Academy. Investigator
Tommie Adkins is certified as
an immigration officer pur-
suant to Section 287.Gofthe
Immigration and Nationality
Act. Under this law, he is au-
thorized to interrogate any
alien, or person believed to be
an alien, in regards to their
status in the United States,"
whereas a non-ICE officer
cannot. The WCSO press re-
lease also noted that, "The
Walton County Sheriffs Of-
fice is taking another step
forward. U.S. Immigration
and Customs Enforcement
agents will be conducting
training for the patrol depu-
ties during the month of Au-
gust. This training is focused
on recognizing counterfeit
immigration documents.
This training will enable
deputies to establish prob-
able cause for an arrest un-
der the charge of.possession
of fraudulent documents.
These cases will be for-
warded to the State
Attorney's Office and to the
U.S. Attorney's Office,
through ICE. Both have
agreed to seek prosecution in
these cases. Glidewell said
that many members of the
public also fail to realize that


when an illegalal alien is ar-
rested locally, he has to face
those charges locally before
he can be deported because
of his right to due process
and a trial. Another factor to
recognize is that if an illegal
alien is not in the CAPS sys-
tem, then he is allowed to
post bail just like any other
citizen for misdemeanor or
felony charges set by the
judge presiding over his case.
So detention is only as far-
reaching as the CAP and ICE
database information allows.
ICE also openly states on
its public information
website, www.ice.gov, that
the National Fugitive Opera-
tions Program's "primary
mission is to identify, locate,
apprehend, process and re-
move fugitive aliens from the
United States, with the high-
est priority placed on those
fugitives who have been con-
victed of crimes. Further-
more, NFOP's goal is to
eliminate the backlog of fu-
gitives and ensure that the
number of aliens deported
equals the number of final
orders of removal issued by
the immigration courts in
any given year."
Which means, if an illegal
alien can stay out of the ICE
and CAPS system and data-
base, they may be able to live
anywhere in America with
little threat of deportation
and continue to -drain re-
sources of communities large
and small.

increase would be across-the-
board and the remaining one
to three percent would be
added according to an em-
ployee evaluation formula.
Satisfactory employees
would receive a one-percent
increase, a good evaluation
would give an employee a
two-percent increase and an
excellent would give a three-
percent increase onto of the
baseline four-percent cost of
living raise.
The council asked for new
figures to be presented at the
next workshop as to what
impact a different bonus plan
would have on the budget.
This would be an annual bo-
nus plan where employees
who had worked five to 10
years would receive a $300 '
annual bonus and an em-
ployee who was employed 11
to 15 years would receive a
$500 bonus. '
Adkinson ask the council
to consider training officers
at 10 percent less than start-
ing salary for new trainees,
with pay-rate changing to
regular salary at six months
of employment. Adkinson
also asked for the council to
consider a fitness incentive
for officers and firefighters
that could possibly help with
less sick days, less worker's
compensation claims and
possible lower insurance
rates. The council agreed to
consider such a plan.
The council moved onto
the discussion of city depart-
ment head's salaries and
agreed on the following num-
bers. The city manager will
receive a proposed seven-per-
cent increase in salary for
next year's budget from
$74,380.80 to $79, 507.47
The city manager's posi-
tion is the highest paid sal-
ary for a city employee. Kim
Kirby's starting base salary
in June 2005 was $65,000. In
October of 2005, she received
a five-percent bump in salary
and in 2006 she received a
nine-percent pay raise. The
city finance director, Sara
Bowers, and other depart-
ment heads will see a seven-
percent raise was well as
three-percent retroactive
raise, which will equal a ten
percent increase in salary
from $54,329.60 to $59,934.
The city fire chief, Brian
Coley, will move up from
$52,000 to $57,932. In 2006,
Coley received a $10,000
raise.'
City Marshal Mike
Adkinson was first given a
ten- percent raise to bring his
salary from $54,485.60 to
$59, 934. The council then
entered into a discussion
that Adkinson's salary was
not in line with surrounding
cities and moved to increase
his salary to $65,000. The
council agreed to this four to
one, with the exception of
council member Don
Harrison.
All council members and
the mayor agreed to raise
their own yearly salaries
from $3,120 a year to $6,000
a year for council members
and from $4,160 to $9,000
per year for the mayor. The
city's budget for 2006 was
$22,856,910 and for the fis-


cal year of 2007 is
$24,107,200.
Next year's proposed bud-
get total is not yet projected
due to union agreements, in-
surance premium's and other
miscellaneous articles not
being renewable until future
dates. The council will meet
next on Aug. 27 at 6 p.m. to
discuss longevity bonuses
and raises and on Sept. 6 at
5:30 p.m. for the final bud-
get workshop. The first pub-
lic hearing is set for Sept.13,
2007.


The DeFuniak Springs City Council discussed salaries, revenues and expenditures at a budget workshop on the after-
noon of August 14.

Lyndsey Johnson, a local
music student, attended
Brevard Music Cente'r in
Brevard, NC. The program
began June 11 and en ded
August 5. Johnson was a
member of the Janiec Oprera
Company. This company was
made up of undergraduates
and graduate students from
some of the top music schools
in the country.
They put on four operas
and musicals, including
"Susannah", "Candide",
"Camelot", and "La Boheme".
Between those performances
students were also selected
to perform in smaller reci t-
als and concerts. Each voice
student also had private les;-
sons with Carmen Pelton o0r
Joseph Evans as well as ae
master class with Benita
Valente.
Johnson was in the chorus in
all the shows in addition to
small speaking and charac-
ter roles. In' collaboration
with the composition stu-
dents, she also premiered a
new song on one of the art
song recitals. The students
worked with world-renowned
directors and musicians such
as David Effron at this inten-
sive summer institute. This
summer marked the last sea-
son for Maestro Effron, who
served as artistic director for
the past 11 years. Guest art-
ists included Joshua Bell,
Midori, and Andre Watts
among many others.
Johnson, who graduated
from Okaloosa-Walton Col-
lege in 2005, will begin her
senior year at Berry College
in Rome, GA. this fall, and
plans to continue her musi-
cal career in graduate school.
She would like to thank all
of her sponsors who helped
her attend the music pro-
gram this summer.
To celebrate her success,
she is hosting a recital on

School Art student volun-
teers,joined Jerry Pilcher, art
instructor at South Walton
High School, in a day- long
workshop of hands-on art ac-
tivities.
After a brief video overview
of the art curriculum at
South Walton High School by
Pilcher, the teachers divided
into groups of 5-7 and were
assigned a student volunteer
instructor to lead them in cre-
ating finished art pieces.
"I set out to have them fin-


ish one activity in the morn-
ing in hopes of doing a sec-
ond different one in the af-
ternoon. Boy, was I wrong"
said Pilcher. "They went to
work, and most of them fin-
ished three-four pieces of art.
Some more than that. It was
a mad house frenzy of artists
working for five hours or
more. We had lunch brought
in so we slowed up a bit for
lunch. They sat down in the
middle of their art work to
eat while watching a video
on glassblowing."
When the teachers left
some were wearing, others
were carrying their cre-
ations. Activities that were

The greatest sight


seen by people

By DR. ROBERT M. JAYE


During the trail of Jesus
by Pilate, He was scourged
and then brought forth for
the crowd to see. John 19:5
tells us that Pilate said to
them, "Behold the Man."
Certainly Jesus, wearing a
crown of thorns, is the great-
est sight and figure in hu-
man history. Let us behold
Him.
Behold the Man for Man
He is. He was born, grew up,
was tempted, and rejoiced.
he stands before us. All the


essential marks of an essen-
.tial manhood are upon Him.
Let us never deny Him the
solid reality of this fact.
Behold the ridiculed Man.
His crown is the crown of de-
rision; His robe is worn-out
purple, the garment of deri-
sion, His salutation the
rough scourging of Roman
soldiery. He took it all for us.
Looking upon Him makes
our best endeavor seem as
nothing. Jesus knew all of
what happens to us. He was


tempted-tried-in all points as
we are, yet without sin.
Behold the suffering Man.
He was scourged, thorn-
crowned, and beaten by sol-
diers who enjoyed the
"sport." We have known suf-
fering. In the utmost way, He
knew it also. He suffered it
and the cross for suchps we.
Behold the self-sacrificing
Man. He was placed in the
position of others. He en-
dured the cross. He did that
for all believers without a

word, except to pray for us,
and seek some relief, when
none was coming. -

Behold the triumphing
Man. Read all of which our
Scriptures speak. He went
to the cross and died an
atoning death. He also ap-
pointed us, by His own
power, to follow Him to glo-
rious resurrection and as-
cension. Behold the Man,
who is God and Man. To
know Him is to love Him.

Movie Review


The Last Legion: Roamin' History


By BRUCE COLLIER
The year is 476 A.D.
Romulus Augustus, a teen-
aged Roman prince, has been
crowned emperor of the
Western Roman Empire the
Eastern part having split off
around 330 A.D. The Ger-
manic barbarian leader
Odoacer disputes the lad's
sovereignty, overthrows him,
and exiles Romulus to the is-
land of Capri, in the Italian
province of Campania. Thus
the last of the Caesars dis-
appears from history, and the
Western Roman Empire of-
ficially falls.
And that's about the last
history one gets in Doug
Lefler's The Last Legion,
based in part on a novel by
Valerio Manfredi. Granted, a
lot of ancient Greek and Ro-
man history is suspect as it
is. The numbers in battles
are routinely quadrupled, he-
roes and villains are drawn


with broad strokes, and im-
perial legends both re-
spectable and racy run
rampant.
Still, this one would have
us believe that Roman his-
tory and Arthurian legend
are dovetailed. If you saw
the 2004 film King Arthur
(with Clive Owen and Keira
Knightley), you'll have
heard that before. The Last
Legion borrows rather liber-
ally from the same premise,
with a few dashes of Lord of
the Rings for good measure.
As they say, if you're gonna
steal, steal from the best....
Romulus (Thomas
Sangster) is a spunky kid,
but he needs some adult
muscle to get away from the
Gothic hit squad that
Odoacer sends after him.
Enter Aurelius (Colin Firth),
a legionary general with one
campaign too many under
his belt (hey Russell Crowe


took home an Oscar doing the
same kind of role),
Ambrosinus (Ben Kingsley as
a sort of Celtic Mahatma
Gandhi), and a troop of cul-
turally diverse warriors. No-
table among the latter is In-
dian actress/model
Aishwarya Rai as Mira, a foxy
but deadly fighter with about
20 blades secreted about her
exotic person.
We start out with one bad
guy, Odoacer (Peter Mullan)
and one henchman, Wulfila
(Kevin McKidd). Odoacer has
a few scenes, then disappears.
Too bad, because Mullan, who
was a very impressive funny/
bad guy in Children of Men,
is underused here. However,
he and McKidd do establish
one important historical fact
- barbarians apparently
spoke Latin with Scottish ac-
cents, while Romans (Firth,
Sangster), spoke it with a
pure upperclass British ac-


cent. Actually no one speaks
Latin here, this is no Mel
Gibson movie.
Which leads to another ob-
servation. At the time in his-
tory that this movie starts,
Rome had been rather mili-,
tantly Christian for about
160 years. Aside from a tiny
cross on Romulus's imperial
crown which gets stomped
flat by Wulfila there's no ref-
erence to Christianity or the
growing Roman Catholic
Church at all. Ambrosinus
seems a bit of a druid, and
the Romans revere honor
and truth and that's about it.
Interesting, since the
Arthurian legend is steeped
in Christian tradition. I'd
venture to guess that Lefler
didn't want to offend any-
body except maybe druids,
who may not be a worthwhile
demographic.
The action moves to Brit-
ain, where Bad Guy Number


Two appears in the form of
Vortgyn, a kind of barbar-
ian Darth Vader, disfigured
(we never learn how) be-
hind a gold mask that re-
minded me of Mister Sun.
At the center of everything
is the sword Excalibur,
which we are told was
forged in Britain for Julius
Caesar, and which Vortgyn
covets. Add to this a dis-
banded and nearly-forgot-
ten legion (see title),
Hadrian's Wall, and a des-
perate last stand, and you
have the movie. I still
couldn't quite figure out
what was supposed to be
most important Romulus,
the sword, the legion's
honor, or the dawn of lib-
erty in Britain. Maybe all
that.
Like most movies of this
kind that employ British
actors and exotic locations,
(Tunisia, Turkey), The Last


Legion is technically beyond
reproach. There's CGI, lots of
blindingly fast hand-to-hand
combat, and the always-excel-
lent Kingsley in charge both
as Obi-Wannabe Ambrosinus
and as narrator. What more
could one ask for?
A better-plotted story, more
rounded characters, less arbi-
trary action, a point, perhaps?
I suppose we should be flat-
tered that the film assumes
we are up on our Arthurian
legend. As it is, I got the feel-
ing that Lefler was pretty
sure most of his audience had
seen King Arthur, and would
fill in the blanks.
Too many blanks. This is a
movie, not a video game we
can play over and over again
until we get it. The Last Le-
gion is probably destined to be
referred to as "that other King
Arthur movie, not the one
with Clive Owen."

L SEEDS
FROM I
THE
SOWER


A newspaper was
supposed to carry the
headline: "Battle-Scarred
Veteran Gone To Rest."
But it came out:
"Battle-Scared Veteran
Gone To Rest."
The mistake was
discovered and a change
was made for the"
afternoon edition. But it
read: "Battle-Scarred
Veteran Gone To Roast."
I don't know if he went
to rest or to roast, but
there's a heaven to gain
and a hell to shun.
God doesn't force
anyone to live in heaven,
if they don't want to. And
He doesn't send anyone
to hell. People choose it.
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?'

SPORTS

Sports editorial


What lies ahead for Gators, Canes and Noles?


By CHUCK HINSON
It has been a media circus
all over the state of Florida.
One team is trying to redeem
themselves and return to the
big championship dance,
while the other two football
powerhouses still struggle to
find their footing on the field,
in the eyes of their fans and
in the poll standings.
The University of Florida
has their hands full and was
recently publicized that they
have one of the youngest
teams in college football. De-
spite an impressive recruit-
ing year under head coach
Urban Meyer, they still have
numerous freshmen that
have joined the team and
have to learn the plays and
ways of Meyer before the first
play whistle sounds in less
than two weeks.
Of the 25 true freshman
that are coming into the
Florida program, 14 have
played on high school teams


that either went to or won
state high school state cham-
pionships.
Of course Meyer and the
entire Gator squad is being
bombarded with questions
from fans and the press won-
dering if they can repeat the
past January. Meyer has said
several times that a repeat
would be outstanding, but re-
alistically impossible this
year.
Coming in ranked in the
No. 3 spot in the Coaches'
Poll, Florida's biggest hurdle
is rebuilding a squad that
lost more than 20 starters
and seniors.
Miami's Randy Shannon is
finally getting a chance to
prove that patience does pay
off. After head coach Larry
Coker was fired and the job
Was handed to Shannon, the
school and the alumni
wanted changes and he has
vowed to make them.
Again, the big question,


and, some might say, the big-
gest hurdle, would be the
quarterback slot against
Kyle Wright and Kirby Free-
man. Despite being the re-
turn starter for more than
two Miami football seasons,
Wright has had his share of
ups and downs on the field,
After Wright's injury on
the field last year, Freeman
stepped into the position and
looked as if he could have
potential for this year. Shan-
non has been saying for
months that he would make
the quarterback decision on
Aug. 28.
Now the revamped, reor-
ganized, reevaluated and
and totally reconstructed
Seminoles that has seen
their share of victorious sea-
sons and the agony of let-
downs in the past five years.
Surprisingly enough, the
fans were not wanting the
head of quarterback Drew
Wetherford, who is now in a


race with back-up quarter-
back Xavier Lee, but instead
the head of Bowden's own
son, Jeff. Well, they got what
they wanted when papa
Bowden canned his own son,
despite the fact that Bowden
announced his resignation at
a press conference.

As the winningest coach in
college football with a fan
base that expects the same
results, year after year,
Bobby Bowden had to make
decisions fast. He made them
with some abrupt changes .
Bowden and now the uni-
versity and fans, are hoping
the new additions to the
coaching roster will help put
the Seminoles back in the top
five teams and win another
championship down the
road.
The new team of coaches
come from LSU, North Caro-
lina State and West Virginia.
The new coaching staff have


either played as a players on
the FSU team, previously
coached at FSU, or were
lured away from their respec-
tive colleges for a chance to
coach under Bowden. *
.The Seminoles, despite a.
rebuilding season on the ad-
ministrative side of the
team, comes in at the No. 21
spot in the Coaches' Poll.
The next few weeks will
see many changes in the col-
lege football rankings once
the season gets into full
swing and top teams begin to
clash. It will also be a time
to prove to the state of
Florida, that the "home"
teams have always been a
powerhouse and a major
threat to any other team that
hits the field against them.
For Florida, the challenge
to return to the,big game is
riding on their heels. They
know that with such a large
freshmen class, their work is
cut out for them. It has been


done before and Meyer seems
to be just the coach who can
make it happen again
For Miami and Florida
State it is a matter of pa-
tience and learning the plays
and rules all over again. But
the fans have stayed with
them over the past few years,
when both teams have suf-
fered lack-luster seasons and
questionable coaching, as
well as, numerous player vio-
lations on and off the field,
Hopefully they will getoa sur-
prising return to the days of
glory from both teams.
No one knows the outcome
and what will happen be-
tween the first kick-off the
football next weekend, and
what the end result will be
come January. That is what
makes college football such
an exciting sport for millions,
of Americans and what keeps
them glued to the radios,
televisions and newspapers
from August to December.

World champion quarterback

Joe Theismann and champion

pitmaster Chris Lilly share tips

for the ultimate backyard tailgate


FAMILY FEATURES


j u.t becaLj.% ,;_,ou don't have ticket-, i,,iis .'. eek's.most talked-
about football nmaich-up doesn't mean you can't enjoy yourself
on game day. Why not use the opportunity to fire up the barbe-
cue, gather friends and family, and bring the tailgating party home?
Chris Lilly, champion pitmaster and owner of Big Bob Gibson
Bar-B-Q in Decatur, Ala., says the key to a successful backyard tail-
gate is a winning game plan. "I like to do as much as I can prior to
game day so that when my guests arrive, I am free to enjoy myself,"
said Lilly. "Easy steps such as marinating meat the night before,'
preparing a checklist of necessary items to avoid last minute trips


to the market, and choosing simple recipes make all the difference
when you are trying to catch the first quarter."
World champion quarterback and restaurateur, Joe Theismann, says
he has spent some of his favorite game days in his own backyard.
"Tailgating at home gives you the ultimate home field advantage,"
said Theismann. "The grill is always going, the glasses are always
topped off, and there is always room for a quick game of pickup
football between family and friends."
For an even more authentic game day experience, create a menu
featuring recipes that incorporate the flavors and ingredients of each


team's hometown. When the UniI esih.\ of Notre Damii makes the field
this year, Theismann will be firing up Luck 0' the Ii ish aiiib Chops
to honor his alina mater. Meanwhile, Alabama native Lilly will grill
Smoked Chicken With Alabama White Sauce over.a bed of Kingsford
Charcoal while cheering on the University of Aubuin.
For more ways to bring the tailgate home, including additional
tips and game day recipe match-ups, visit www.MealsTogether.com,
While there, share your go-to plays, including charcoal grilling
recipe secrets and strategies, for a chance to win great prizes during
college football season.


Winning Game Plan

For a successful backyard tailgate, execute the following key plays:
* Score an Early First Down. Marinate meat the night prior to game day, using a large
Glad Storage Bag for even and easy coating.
* Create a Burger Blitz. For a better game day burger, poke a small hole in the center of
the patty. This will stop the meat from rising in the center, allowing for a delicious,
evenly-cooked burger. For extra flavor, try adding a bit of KC Masterpiece Barbecue
Sauce.
* Avoid Pass Interference. Make sure there is a radio or small television by the. grill and in
the kitchen so you don't miss any of the action.
* Pack the Stands. To really draw a crowd, add a bit of Kingsford Charcoal with Mesquite
to your grill neighbors won't be able to resist the rich, earthy smell of the charcoal fire.
Before you know it, your yard will feel a bit like a stadium parking lot.
* Take It Into Overtime. To really regulate cooking temperature, use two grills: on the
larger grill, create hot and cool zones to rotate your meat from searing to indirect cooking;
on the smaller grill, create a normal fire and cook hors d'oeuvres and desserts.


Luck O' the Irish Lamb Chops With Minty
Ranch Dipping Sauce
Created bl/football'analyst, world championship quarterback and restaurateur
Joe Theisinann on behalfofKingsfobrd Charcoal
Lamb Chops are one of the easiest and quickest meats to grill and one
of the tastiest. A quick spice rub and you are ready to grill. Pick up a
second rack for a heftier serving.
Makes: 4 servings
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 8 minutes


1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon cumin
1 tablespoon salt
1 rack of lamb, cut into 8 chops
Juice of half a lime
Dipping Sauce
2 cups plain yogurt, drained
1 tablespoon fresh mint, chopped
I package Hidden Valley The Original,
Ranch Dips mix
Chopped fresh mint


Combine spices in small bowl and rub half over
lamb chops. Turn over lamb chops and rub in other
half of spice mix.
Prepare charcoal grill and place each chop
directly over hot charcoal. Grill 4 minutes; turn each
over and grill another 3 minutes. Remove from heat
and allow to rest. Squeeze lime juice over chops and
serve with dipping sauce.
To make dipping sauce, combine yogurt, mint and
dip mix and keep in refrigerator until ready to serve.
Place a dollop of dip on each plate of lamb chops.
Garnish with chopped fresh mint.


Smoked Chicken With Alabama White Sauce
Created bi champion pilmaster Chris Lilly on behalf of King.fird Charcoal
Southerners like their food with a little (or a lot) of spice, and Alabama is
no exception. Chicken breasts are brined, smoked and dunked into a tangy,
peppery Alabama white sauce. This multi-step process insures moistness
of the meat and a complex, layered flavor.
Makes: 8 servings
Prep time: 15 minutes plus 1 hour for marinade
Cook time: 12 minutes*
8 chicken breasts, boneless
and skinless


Brine
1 cup water
1 cup apple juice
1 tablespoon salt
1/4 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon honey
1/2 tablespoon dark brown sugar
1/2 tablespoon soy sauce
1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
Alabama White Sauce
I cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup vinegar
1/4 cup apple juice
I teaspoon prepared horseradish
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper


1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
In medium bowl add brine ingredients and mix well.
Place chicken breasts in brine and refrigerate 1 hour.
Remove chicken breasts from brine and wipe off
excess salt.
In small bowl add Alabama White Sauce ingre-
dients and mix well.
Preheat charcoal grill to 4000F. Place chicken
breasts on hot grate over direct heat 5 to 6 minutes
on each side. Remove chicken breasts from grill
when golden brown and firm to the touch. The
internal temperature of chicken breasts should be
1600F.
Submerge each chicken breast into bowl of
Alabama White Sauce. Remove fiom sauce and

For many in Walton
County, the name Sharon
Maxwell is synonymous with
loggerhead turtles. Maxwell
has been active in the South
Walton Turtle Watch
(SWTW) since the organiza-
tion was founded in 1995.
From the first of May
through the end of October,
more' than 40 volunteers,
walk the 24 miles of non-
state controlled beach in the
county, noting the activity of
the endangered Panhandle
loggerhead. "We have lovely

might be shot, but we have
great legs. Every year we say


By DOTTY NIST
Created in Dec. 2006 by
the Walton County Chamber
of Commerce, the Center for
Attainable Housing will un-
dergo a transformation, ac-
cording to a recent announce-
ment.
Appearing before the Wal-
ton County Board of County
Commissioners, Walton
County Chamber of Com-
merce Executive Director
Dawn Moliterno reported
that the center would soon
transition to an unstaffed
"virtual center" consisting of
"a robust website section"
dedicated to providing infor-
mation on affordable hous-
ing.
"The site will be utilized to
provide many of the answers
consumers, developers and
other interested parties are
seeking in their quest for
workforce housing informa-
tion," Moliterno explained.
"All planning questions will
be referred to the respective
planning departments
within the city and county
governments. The center will
transition from providing
technical information to in-
formational assistance," she
added.
The original center, a pub-
lic-private nonprofit, was en-
visioned as a vehicle to facili-
tate workforce housing op-


the same thing and think we
are in good shape, but the
first two weeks of walking
the beach, your legs are
screaming at you," Maxwell
said.
"The loggerhead is found
throughout the world. The
Panhandle/Northern Logger-
head is a sub population of
the world's loggerheads and
they nest nowhere but on
white sandy beaches. They
are very endangered. In the
last two incidents we had
this year, the solution was so
utterly simple it was a no-
brainer. A recent one is a new
building which shouldn't
have fluorescent lights in the


portunities, a research initia-
tive, and a "third party inter-
mediary" between the con-
sumer, private enterprise
and local government. Plans
had included the establish-
ment of a land trust for af-
fordable housing.
In 2006, Walton County
provided $55,000 in public
funding toward -the
organization's $158,500
yearly budget. Two full-time
employees were hired, an ad-
ministrative assistant and a
director.
The director for the center,
Blaine Ashford, resigned in
early summer 2007 and was
not replaced.
Due to budget cuts resulting
from state property tax re-
form legislation, Walton
County has not proposed any
funding for the center in the
new fiscal year.
Moliterno said the deci-
sion regarding the center
was motivated not only by fi-
nancial considerations but
also by the director vacancy
.plus "the continued progress
of the Wolf Creek Village
Project," an affordable hous-
ing initiative to be developed
on J.W. Hollington Road east
of Freeport. Moliterno is a
board member for the non-
profit responsible for the
project. Wolf Creek Village
anticipates breaking ground


"Every year we learn different things
about what we are doing. We can choose to
do this, that or the other thing. We have to
believe that enough people are going to

turtles. You do what you think is right and

her to turn off her light for a
few nights and it wasn't

"As Wolf Creek Village
more fully materialized, the
Center directed increasing
support to that project,"
Moliterno noted. Wolf Creek
Village organizer and presi-
dent of the Walton County
Workforce Housing Agency
Lloyd Blue recognized
Moliterno and the Chamber
for addressing affordable
housing at a time when there
was an "absolute void" of at-
tention in the county regard-
ing the issue.
"I think the Chamber
should be congratulated for
their efforts," Blue told' the


commissioners. Blue also rec-
ognized Moliterno for her
and the Chamber's part in
Wolf Creek Village's
progress.,
Moliterno commented
that the Chamber gets an
abundance of calls each week
from "general consumers" in-
terested in finding a place to
live that they can afford.
Many are seeking finance in-
formation for first
homebuyers, she added. She
said it may seem obvious'
that these people should con-
tact financial institutions for
the information on the latter,
but that many do not know
to do so.

ber of turtles in the area is
declining rapidly. Maxwell
said in 2000, SWTW hatched
58 nests, but in 2007 SWTW
has marked only 17 nests.
"In seven years declining
that much is rather scary. Of
those 17, one was a Kemp
Ridley, which was great, and
another was a leatherback
loggerhead, which have
never nested here before. So
we really only had 15 logger-
head nests. If the numbers
continue to decline, soon
there will be none.
"When we see signs that a
nest is going to hatch, we no-
tify people and ask them to
turn off lights. Seventy-two
hours after hatching we dig
up the nest for evaluation.
Our guidelines from the
Florida Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection
(FDEP) say that turtles need
to imprint from an area. If we
dig up a nest that still has
hatchlings in it, we put the
hatchlings in a cooler with
cool sand and in the evening
release them back to the area
where we found them, so
hopefully they will walk to
the water. This imprints the
area for turtles of the future.
Mother nature designed
them for night walking in or-
der to avoid predators," she
noted.
"As humans we are not
helping this endangered spe-
cies. We try to get people to
turn off their lights, but of-
ten they do not. The impor-
tance of turtles is that on this
earth several hundred mil-
lion years ago, there were di-
nosaurs and turtles. Dino-
saurs are extinct, but the
turtles have survived. We
can both use the beach, hu-
mans in the daytime, turtles
at night. Humans can use red
flashlights at night, use bug
lights instead of porch lights,
shield the lights to point
down, and be careful when
boating. All these things will
help the turtles to survive,'
she said.'
"To make a difference we
have to get a handle on boats
killing the turtles and the
lighting disorientations. If
the county passes a turtle
lighting ordinance, will they
give people too long to com-
ply? I know people keep won-
dering why we keep harping
on this, but baby sea turtles
do not feel the dampness of
the sand or smell the sea.
They go toward the brightest
lights. It's really sad. I had
volunteers spending two
hours out in the hot sun.
When a sea turtle doesn't go
directly to the water, the


FROM FRONT


ghost crabs either pull them
down into the ghost crab
holes or blind them and pull
them down later. To see it
end that way is really hard.
It's like seeing an adult turtle


killed by a boat.. If I could
have one wish, it would be
that people who love the
beach could respect it for
what it is, which is a sea
turtle nesting habitat."

ON JULY 5, a visitor from Atlanta was arrested on this property, which beachfront
homeowners maintain is private beach north of the wet sand.





Beach trespassing



case proceeding


SHARONMAXWELL ANDAL MURPHY have been walk-
ing the beaches since 1995 noting the activities of loggerhead
turtles.


By DOTTY NIST
An Atlanta resident who
visited south Walton County
in July has plead not guilty
to charges of trespassing on
The Retreat property in Blue
Mountain Beach, and a pre-
trial conference on the mat-
ter is scheduled for next
month.
On July 5, according to a
Walton County Sheriff's Of-
fice report, beachgoer
Eduardo Gonzalez, 48, was
arrested following a com-
plaint by a security officer
working for The Retreat that
Gonzalez was trespassing on
the private property of the
beachfront development.
According to the report
filed by the arresting officer,
David Jordan, Gonzalez was
informed that the public
beach began at the wet sand
area of the beach, and that
the dry sand area he was sit-
ting on was private property.


According to the com-
plaint filed by the security
officer, Gonzalez was first
asked if he was staying at
The Retreat. When it was de-
termined that he was not and
that he was not a Retreat
property owner, law enforce-
ment was called due to
Gonzalez' refusal to move.
The Retreat is located just
west of a public beach access
on the adjacent Inn at Blue
Mountain Beach property.
Jordan reported that he
had asked Gonzalez to move
three feet towards the water
and that he had refused "and
stated that I would have to
arrest him to get him to
move."
Gonzalez was then ar-
rested for alleged violation of
Florida Statute 810.09, Tres-
passing after Warning, and
was transported to Walton
County Jail, according to the
report. The alleged violation


is considered a first-degree
misdemeanor.
Gonzalez, who was re-
leased on bond, plead not
guilty and demanded a jury
trial, according to a Sara
Lowery, Walton County
Criminal Court clerk.
On August 20, Assistant
State Attorney Greg Anchors
said that the matter was still
pending and that the State
Attorney's Office is proceed-
ing with prosecution of the
trespass charges.
-The case has been as-
signed to Walton County
Judge David Green.
Calls to Gonzalez and his
attorney Martin W. Lester
seeking comment were not
returned.

A pretrial conference be-
tween the parties involved is
scheduled for 9 a.m. on Sep-
tember 12 at the Walton.
County Courthouse..

Angelos developer submits


downsized footprint


By JEFFREY POWELL
"I wish they would have
done this a year ago when we
asked them to," said Walton
County Planning and Devel-
opment .Director Pat
Blackshear. "This plan looks
a lot better than before."
Blackshear was comment-
ing on a new plan that devel-
opers have submitted for a
beach-front parcel of land in
Seagrove Beach. The original
plan had brought about stiff
resistance from the public
and members of the Walton
County Board of Commis-
sioners (BCC). Concerned
citizen had been worried
about the destruction of a
large primary dune the first
plan would have at least al-
tered.
The redesign was pre.-
sented to the BCC on Tues--
day August, 14.
The redesign will have 13
units rather than the 24 first
proposed. The building site
would be reduced from
49,758 square feet to 31,515,
which is a 37-percent reduc-
tion. Also, nearly all of the
proposed construction would
take place behind the coastal
construction line. This will
allow the protection of the
existing 30-foot dune.
"We wanted to provide a
response to the concerns


raised," said Destin Architec-
tural Group representative
Charlie Clary. "We have
made an effort to preserve
dune vegetation and reduce


the project in scope and den-
sity."
The discussion was contin-
ued to allow county staff time
to examine the plan.

Code Enforcement


Board gets case updates


By DOTTY NIST
Members of the Walton
County Code Enforcement
Board were introduced to
new staff members last week
and received updates on past
cases that had come before
the board. All other items on
the board's Aug. 16 agenda
were put off until the Sep-
tember meeting.
Betty Carpenter joins the
Code Enforcement Depart-
ment as clerk and Kendal
Marse is the department's
new administrative assis-
tant.
At the request of board
members, Code Enforcement
Coordinator Kevin Hargett
provided an update regard-
ing the matter of Footprints
Gift Shop and Dave's Glass.
The board had found these
U.S.98 businesses in viola-
tion of the Scenic Corridor
standards several years ago,
resulting in the businesses
contesting those findings in
the courts.
Alleged violations in-
volved long-existing but pro-
hibited "pole" signs at both
businesses and other ex-
amples of noncompliance
with the standards, includ-
ing outdoor storage of mer-
chandise at Footprints.
While Walton County pre-


vailed with the litigation in
a lower court decision, the
two businesses pursued the
matter in the Federal Circuit
Court of Appeals, and the
outcome there was different.
That court ordered media-
tion between the parties. Fol-
lowing the mediation, Walton
County agreed to a settle-
ment involving the county
waiving $167,000 in fines
and the businesses coming
into compliance with the Sce-
nic Corridor standards.
Hargett said that the busi-
nesses were given 60 days to
come into compliance and
that they are about halfway
through that timeline.
He added that the media-
tion agreement will be nulli-
fied if the businesses do not
comply with the standards.
The removal of the pole signs
will be required.
On Aug. 7, Footprints Gift
Shop owner Janet Reeves
commented that she has
agreed to take down her sign
and remove most of her mer-
chandise that is stored out-
side her shop, per county re-
quirements. Reeves was cer-
tain that doing so would hurt
her business.
In another matter, in April
2007, the Code Enforcement
Board found Intrawest


Sandestin in violation for op-
erating a water slide, a
bungee jump, and other rec-
reational activities on a par-
cel in Sandestin Resort near
Beachside III condominiums
without a development order.
Over $7,000 worth of fines
were imposed since the re-
sort had not ceased operation
of the activities after a pre-
vious cease work order by the
Code Enforcement Depart-
ment.
Hargett reported that the
resort had complied immedi-
ately with the board's April
19 order to cease and desist
operation of the rides-and
therefore avoided the addi-
tional $250 per day fines that
would otherwise have been
imposed.
"The park was shut
down," he said.
Hargett said the resort is
close to obtaining a develop-
ment order from the county
for the activities.
"When that is approved,
they'll be able to build the
amusement park," he said.
The next Code Enforce-
ment Board meeting is
scheduled for 6 p.m. on Sept.
20 at the Walton County
Courthouse in DeFuniak
Springs. These meetings are
open to public attendance.

gerous than the dog flies,"
said Commissioner Cindy
Meadows. "The plane came
close enough to my house
that I could see the pilot's
face."
In fact, dog flies are a nui-
sance, not a health problem,
according to South Walton
Mosquito Control District
, Chairman John Magee.
"Spraying for dog flies was


initiated to help tourism,"
said Magee. "The dog fly does
not present a health issue."
Dog flies generally begin
to appear from late August
through November and can
deliver a painful bite.
Area resident Linda Craft,
who lives near the beach,
does not like the idea of pes-
ticides being used so close to
her home. "I prefer the flies


to the pesticides," Craft said.
"If you have the capability to
stop this, please do. Why add
more toxicity to our lives?"
Commissioner Meadows
then made a motion not to al-
low the flight, which was
unanimously upheld by her
fellow commissioners.
The action brought about
a round of applause from the
audience.

Inlet Beach Water System



holds annual meeting


By JEFFREY POWELL

"Health-wise, you are bet-
ter off drinking Inlet Beach
Water System (IBWS) water
than drinking bottled water,"
said IBWS Water Quality
Consultant Carol Anderson.
"We test the water six days a
week."
Anderson's statements
were made during the IBWS
annual board of directors
meeting held at Grande
Point on Saturday, August
18. Anderson and the board
informed approximately 35
members belonging to the
IBWS of the years develop-
ments and current status of
the system.
IBWS President started
off the meeting by pointing
out that board members
serve because of their dedi-
cation to bringing the citi-
zens of Inlet Beach a supe-
rior product and not for any
financial gain. "The members
here are serving at your plea-
sure and receive no compen-
sation," Kelly said. "Our pur-
pose is getting good' quality
water and sewer service for
the customer."
IBWS General Manager
Robert Mitchell pointed out
that a downturn in local

the organization's bottom
line. "The turn in the
economy has hurt our cash
flow," said Mitchell. "When
the economy improves, so
will our cash flow,"
Mitchell also noted, with
some pride, that the IBWS is
unusual in that most of the


organization's water taps
and other important piping
have been recorded using
Global Information System
(GIS) technology. "We are the
smallest system in the
United States using the GIS
system," Mitchell said.
"Someday there will be six

As part of the meeting,
members conducted an elec-
tion to fill a seat on the board.
The board members are
President Jim Kelly, Vice-
President Patrick Jones,
Frank Comer, Robert
Mitchell and newly-elected
John Byrd.

Do you
remember
the days
of the
Saturday
night the-
ater dates
in DeFu- \
n i a k
Springs?
Did you ever wish to
have the classics re-
turn to the Baldwin
Street cinema?


For thousands that gew up
in DeF.uniak Springs and
surrounding areas, the
weekly date night or trip to
the picture show with friends
was a tradition that came to
an end more that 20 year ago.
Anyone that is under the age
of 30, did not have a chance
to catch the latest flick inside
the Lawson Cinema or get a
chance to see the hundreds
that turned out weekly to the
theater, before having to
travel to Destin, Fort Walton
Beach, or Crestview.
Well, times, they are a'
changing, for at least one
weekend in February with
the inuagural Florida
Chautauqua Film Festival.
The 2008 Chautauqua
Winter Assembly in the
Land of Summer is taking
tourists and locals back in
time with three days of cin-
ematic events that will take
place Feb. 21-23. It is part of
the four-day program of edu-
cational, entertainment and
community celebration.

vance as possible," said Dr.
Cliff Herron, Executive Di-
rector of the Mattie Kelly
Arts Center. "So, season
ticket purchasers will enjoy
a two-week priority window,

The Child Advocate


By Julie Hurst
Executive Director
Children's Advocacy Center
The Emerald Coast Children's Advocacy Center is
celebrating its 10th anniversary as an organization
this year. For those of you who, like myself,
were there from the beginning, it's been an incredible
decade of protecting child abuse victims.
Prio to the Childrenri Advocacy;Center., child
victims of physical and se''ual abuse were moved
from one agency to another (at the fault of no one),
retelling their stories time and time again. Many times,
after the retelling and retelling their horrific stories and
going from agency to agency; many children recanted
and the ability to help the child and their family was
lost. Not only was the child lost but something also as
important, holding the bad person accountable for
their actions.
In 1997, a group of dedicated professionals from
agencies managing child abuse cases, joined hands
and decided there had to be a better system for
kids. They found the concept a children's advocacy
center, a place where children can go to see all the
professionals under one roof and receive the
invaluable services to help restore their lives. The
communities of Wallon and Okaloosa counties came
together to make the CAC a realiyv for our children by
being a part of a "true" grassrootl project.
Our Center houses professionals from our agency
partners -law enforcement, prosecution, child
protection team, mental health, and Department of
Children and Families Their dedication and
commitment has allowed many children to become
not survivors, but thrivers and has neld many bad


people accountable for their actions.
Over the past decade, the Center and its agency
partners have done a tremendous job of protecting
children, restoring lives, and holding offenders
accountable. In the upcoming decade the Center
will not only protect children and restore lives it will
play an important role in preventing child abuse at
the front end.
In the fall, the Center will begin to implement a
formal prevention program called Darkness to
Light. The program is designed to target adults and
organizations who work with children such teachers,
churches, youth organizations. The theme of the
project is to begin to shift the responsibility of
protecting children back to adults. Folks certainly
don't hand a child a car seat, and say "Hey, buckle
yourself in." Folks don't send a child across the
street on their own. They hold their hands to make
sure they cross safely. But people do seem to
expect children to protect themselves against
people who potentially could prey on them. "Just
say no!" hasn't worked and history tells us it won't.

The Center will officially celebrate its 10th
Anniversary on October 10 at the Center. Mark your
calendars and help us celebrate the successes of
the past decade and help us launch the next.
For more information, contact me at 833-9237,
ext. 223. As always, if a person knows of or
suspects child abuse, please contact the Florida
Child Abuse Hotline at 1-800-96-ABUSE. It may just
be the call a child is waiting for someone to make -
and you, too, can be a part of preventing children
abuse, protecting children, and restoring lives.
