THIS IS NOW the sight that usually greets immigrants who have little trouble sneaking
across miles of open border land that has little of no fencing at all, despite Congress'prom-
ise.



Legal immigration and-


"Americanization"


Part two of a series on the
effects of illegal immigration
in Walton County
By ALICIA LEONARD
Three days before his
death, on January 3, 1919,
Theodore Roosevelt wrote a
letter to the American De-
fense Society, saying, "In the
first place we should insist
that if the immigrant who
comes here in good faith be-
comes an American and as-
similates himself to us, he
shall be treated on an exact
equality with everyone else,
for it is an outrage to dis-
criminate against any such
man because of creed, or
birthplace, or origin. But this
is predicated upon the man's
becoming in very fact an
American, and nothing but
an American...There can be
no divided allegiance here.
Any man who says-he is an
American, but something
else also, isn't an American
at all. We have room for but
one flag, the American flag,
and this excludes the red
flag, which symbolizes all
wars against liberty and civi-
lization, just as much as it ex-
cludes any foreign flag of a
nation to which we are
hostile...We have room for
but one language here, and
that' is the English
language...and we have room
for but one sole loyalty and
that is a loyalty to the Ameri-
can people." Roosevelt spoke
passionately about "Ameri-
canization" or the ability to
adopt American culture in
his later years. It is an issue
that continues to resonate


with citizens throughout the
nation and here in Walton
County.
"Having spent over 32
year with INS, I saw a lot,"
Defuniak Springs resident
and retired Immigration and
Naturalization Service (INS)
official J.B. Hillard echoes
Roosevelt's thoughts, "Ethnic
groups are no longer assimi-
lating into American society
like they did 75 or 100 years
ago. This is a major, major,
problem that is causing soci-
ety in this nation to change
like we have never seen be-
fore. Frankly, I don't see any.
reversal in the trend. We still
have time to make changes,
but if they are not started
soon, I truly believe in the
next 30 to 50 years this na-
tion will be
unrecognizable as what it is
today."'
In 1891, the INS was cre-
ated to handle an ever-grow-
ing influx of immigrants
from across the world, and
opened the nation's first im-
migration screening station
on Ellis Island in 1892, with
450,000 immigrants passing
through in its first year.
Throughout history, legal
immigration has had ebbs
and flows in accordance with
other countries policies or
economics. Customs, immi-
gration sites and border
check points serve as a con-
stant revolving door of immi-
grants flowing into and out
of the United States. From
1846-185.4, it is estimated
that nearly two million
people emigrated from Ire-
land to the United States

famine. World Wars I, II, and
the Emergency Quota Act of
1921, reduced the influx of
European immigrants who
were coming to the country
in large numbers and the Im-
migration Act of 1924, which
was structured to maintain
the ethnic traditions and cul-
tural of the United States,'
decreased immigration even
further. During the height of
the Great Depression, there
were more people trying to
leave.the U.S. than trying to
enter.
In 1943, restricted immi-
gration rules on Asians were
lifted and numbers during
the 1950s and 1960s started
to rise. In 1965, new immi-
gration laws indicated an up-
ward trend that continued
with a spike in the count dur-
ing the 1980-1990 amnesty
acts. Many believed that im-

HealthMark Regional
Hospital, located south of De-
Funiak Springs on U.S. 331,
received two bomb threats
within a 24 hour period last
week. On Aug. 22, the Wal-
ton County Sheriff's Office
(WCSQ) received a call from
HealthMark Regional Hospi-
tal around 6:39 p.m. about a
bomb threat that had been
called in to the hospital. A
"male caller" reportedly. had
called the hospital some-
where around 6:30 p.m., ad-
.vised that a bomb was in the
building, and immediately
hung up.
.WCSO and Walton
County Fire and Rescue


(WCFR) responded to the
scene. Once the building was
secure, a complete check :of
the hospital from room to
room was conducted by both
agencies and hospital staff.
The first deputy was on scene
around 6:42 p.m. with the
WCFR on scene around 6:43
p.m. By 8:10 p.m. after a
complete search both inside
and out, no bomb was found
and the hospital resumed full
operation.
A second bomb threat, be-
lieved to be made by the
same person, was called in at
around 3:30 p.m. on Aug. 23.

DFS council's


vision for future


By ALICIA LEONARD
On Aug. 27, Bruce Stitt,
from the West Florida Re-
gional Planning Board, along
with Greg Scovile,. city plan-
ning and zoning director, pre-
sented the DeFuniak Springs
City Council with abrief out-
line for their urban develop-
ment 20/20 vision plans.
The council was provided
with architecture photos and
agreed to which type of new,
construction would blend in
with already existing build-'
ings. The vision plan could
change the allowable styles
of architecture throughout
the city. The 20/20 vision
progress reports covers areas
north of Interstate 10 and
U.S. 90 east and west. Coun-
cil .member Don Harrison
asked for the south corridor
of U.S. 331 be brought into
the study as well. These are
all preliminarily studies that
are being provided to the city
by Florida A&M University,
School of Architecture. The
20/20 plan is described as a
vision for the next 20 years
in Defuniak Springs city de-
velopment.
Architect Victor Bowman
spoke on the Chautauqua
Hall of Brotherhood renova-
tions and said, "I take all re-
sponsibility for decisions
.made as far as architecture
and choice of the new copper
gutters." Bowman noted that
copper has many benefits as
well as a longer life than
other materials. He also


stated his belief that copper
is historically accurate for
the time frame of the Hall bf
Brotherhood being built,
even if it was not used origi-
nally.
Numerous citizens, as
well as council members,
shared their thoughts on the
changes to the historic build-
ing. Mayor Harold Carpenter
pressed Bowman as to why
the. gutters were placed in
the locations where they
stood out and did not belong.
Bowman replied, "We placed
them where the existing fix-
tures were. We found out
that if they were moved to"
the edges of the porches that
we would have to tear up a
sidewalk for proper drain-
age."
Walton County Commis-
sioner Sara Comander spoke
on behalf of the DeFuniake
Business and Professional
Association and said that the
public had been unaware of
the proposed changes. "In the
future, the public has a right
to know about these deci-
sions. Public input is impor-
tant. We can't make decisions
on the county level without
citizen input and the city
should have to abide by the
same rules."

lack of adherence to the poli-
cies in place regarding his-
toric buildings when using

Walton school board discusses goals, construction


By PATRICK CASEY
The Walton County School
Board met on Tuesday, Au-
gust 21, at the Tivoli Admin-
istrative Complex in DeFu-.
niak Springs to receive an
update on capital projects as
well as handle items associ-
ated with the start of the
2007-08 school year.
The board approved the fi-
nal evaluations of adequate
yearly progress in the school
improvement deregulation
plans. Board Chairman
Mark Davis said he will not
approve any more plans
when the schools do not
make improvements. "If we
reach our goals but don't im-
prove our school grade then
we may need to look at the


goals. Maybe we are not be
setting them high enough."
Board members were cau-
tioned that some of the goals
not being met are in areas
other than academics. Davis
said the board should not ap-
prove a plan where the
schools go down a grade,
something that did happen
this year in some venues.
Superintendent Carlene
Anderson presented her re-
search on the, current policy
concerning granting waivers
for students in one district to
attend school in another dis-
trict. Anderson presented a
waiver to be used, but the
board felt they should con-
sider voiding the old agree-
ment first, which was estab-
lished in 1991,'then look at


entering into a new agree-
ment, possibly based on a
stream-lined criteria that
matches adjacent counties.
Mark Gardner, coordina-
tor of facilities for the Wal-
ton County School District,
updated those in attendance
on the progress of various
construction projects
throughout the county.
The gymnasium that is
being built at Bay Elemen-
tary School has had its con-
crete slab poured and the
contractor is expected to
start erecting the metal
building in the next week.
Chelco is also preparing to
install electrical service to
the building.
The Mossy Head School
site has seen the majority of


completion. on the roadway
and bridge. The school itself
is moving along at a steady
pace. The concrete slabs have
been poured for the cafeteria,
library and stage area. Block
work is moving along with
approximately 25 masons
working daily on the project.
The Paxton High School
gymnasium is nearing final
completion. The building will
likely be finished in early
September with a ribbon cut-
ting ceremony to be sched-
uled soon.
At Walton High School,
the tennis courts that had to
be relocated to behind the
baseball field has had its
fencing installed with the
coating of the courts in
progress. The new high


school has had its first con-
crete slab poured and the lift,
station tie has been done.'
The roadway on the east side.
that leads to Hunter's Ridge
must be developed and nego-
tiations with the developer
should help that phase of the
project. The new high school
should see significant-
progress once the floor slabs
are completed.
Trips were approved for
the Emerald Coast Middle
School football team to.travel
for their 2007 schedule as
well as the Freeport Middle
School girls basketball team.
The Walton County School
Board will hold their next
regular meeting on Septem-
ber 4, 2007, at 5 p.m.







THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, AUGUST 30, 2007


IMMIGRATIC
migration would continue to
become more lax, until the
September 11, 2001. INS be-
came the new baby brother
of Homeland Security and
the upward trend in immi-
gration came to a screeching
: halt. Numbers in 2004, 2005
and 2006 started climbing
again as interoffice agencies
: became more accustomed to
working together.
The United States has
opened and closed the flood-
gates to the country's shores
and borders on multiple oc-
casions with immigration
policy and new law unfolding
as the population grows and
declines. Legal immigration
can help reduce the division
and political tension between
immigrants and the commu-
nities that they may settle in,
by the process of becoming a
citizen itself. Citizenship is
best served through proper
channels and time, lots of.
time. In fact, that could be
the motto for the legal immi-
gration time frame. The time
required can vary for an im-
migrant to become a legal
citizen. Average time from
legal immigration to natural-
ization is seven years.
Many first come to the
United States by means of a
work, travel or family related
visa. The USA.GOV website
explains, "There are two cat-
egories of U.S. visas: immi-
grant and nonimmigrant.
Immigrant visas are for
people who intend to live per-
manently in the U.S. Nonim-
: migrant visas are for people
: with permanent residence
outside the U.S. but who
wish to be in the U.S. on a
temporary basis for tour-
ism, medical treatment, busi-
ness, temporary, work or
study."
If a person with a visa de-
cide he wants to become a
permanent resident, he may
then apply for a green card.
A green card will be issued
after meeting requirements
: through the Department of
Homeland Security and U.S.
Citizenship and Immigration
Services (USCIS). Green
cards can be issued on a tem-
porary and permanent basis.
According to USCIS, "a green
card gives you the official
immigration status of lawful
permanent residency (LPR),
in the United states." Immi-
gration through a family
member, marriage to a citi-
zen and employment are the
most used means of applying
for a green card. "A LPR may
live and work permanently
anywhere in the United
States, own property, and
attend public schools, col-
leges, and universities. They
may also join certain
branches of the armed forces,
and apply to become U.S. citi-
zens if they meet certain eli-
gibility requirements," ac-
cording to USCIS. LPR
charts show California, New
York and Florida to have the

their bills because of recent
tax advisories issued by the
Florida Department of Rev-

Previously, lighting had
been considered free from
sales tax based on a 1985 Tax
Advisory Letter which said,
...security lights associated
with residential households


are exempt when' they are
billed to the individual con-
sumer who uses the power
for 'household' (non-busi-
ness) use."
"We regret the inconve-
nience this tax means to our
member-owners, but
CHELCO must abide by the
Florida Department of Rev-
enue regulations," said
CHELCO Chief Executive
Officer and General Manager
J.E. "Gene" Smith. The
amount of the tax will vary,
depending on the fixture.

highest LPR flow for the
2006 year.
Asylum or refugee status
may also be granted to vic-
tims of war or oppression and
has triggered mass immigra-
tion throughout history. Ac-
cording to Department of
Homeland Security (DHS),
"each year thousands of per-
sons who fear or face perse-
cutions in their country of
origin seek asylum or refugee
status in the United States.
Those living outside the
United States may be re-
ferred for refugee status, and
if approved, enter the United
States as refugees. Individu-
als already living in the
United States or appearing
at a U.S. port of entry may
apply for asylum. J.B.
Hillard recalled, "I will never
forget the three months
spent at Guantanamo Bay
dealing with an invasion
from Haiti. That's a story in
itself."
In 2006, according to the
DHS annual flow report,,
"41,150 people were admit-
ted as refugees" with the top
countries of origin being So-
malia, Russia, and Cuba.
Asylum was also granted
that same year for 26,113,
with most people fleeing
from China, Haiti and Co-
lumbia. The top three states
in 2006 for those seeking asy-
lum were Florida (41 per-
cent), California (24 percent)
and New York (10 percent).
Naturalization has many
guidelines applicants must
meet. These are laid out in


public information provided
by DHS, "These general
naturalization provisions
specify that a foreign na-
tional must be at least 18
years of age; have been
gralited lawful permanent
residence in the United
States (be a legal permanent
resident, LPR); and have re-
sided in the country continu-
ously for at least five years.
Additional requirements in-
clude the ability to speak,
read and write the English
language; knowledge of the
U.S. government and U.S.
history; and good moral char-
acter."
The DHS office of statis-
tics states, in 2006, 37 per-
cent of naturalized citizens
were born in Asia compared
with 32 percent from North
American countries and 15
percent from European coun-
tries. "In 2006, the total num-
ber of persons naturalizing
was 702,589 with the largest
number of persons natural-
izing living in California
(152,836), New .York
(103,870), and Florida
(90,846). The leading coun-
tries of birth of new citizens
were Mexico (83,979), India
(47,542), Philippines
(40,500), China (35,387), and
Vietnam (29,917)," said the
report. Recent changes in the
Immigration and Nationality'
Act (INA) have brought
about provisions provided for
permanent residents who
serve in the U.S. Armed
Forces. The USCIS states
this "makes it easier for
qualified military personnel
to become U.S. citizens if
they choose to file a natural-


ization application and has
created a streamlined pro-
cess specifically for military
personnel serving in active-
duty status or have recently
been discharged."
For all the rigors one must
undergo to become natural-
ized, citizenship does have it
privileges. Citizens of the
U.S. can, for the most part,
move freely throughout the
world with an up-to-date
passport and U.S. Embassy
support and protection. They
have the right to vote in all
elections and hold many gov-
ernment offices. They can
sponsor other family mem-
bers in their birth country to
fast track the immigration
process. Even if a U.S. citi-
zen breaks the law they can-
not be deported to their na-
tive country like an illegal
alien can. A citizen or a LPR
can, in many cases, get their
children under the age of 18
automatically qualified for
citizenship as well. This ap-
pears statistically to be the
goal of most new citizens as
family-sponsored immigra-
tion numbers topped out at
803,335 from a totaled 1.2
million of LPR admissions in
2006. .
The United States' policy
of allowing illegal immi-
grants to legally remain in
,the country is generally ac-
cepted as amnesty. Amnesty
has been allowed at many
times in the past to deal with
overpopulation from illegal
aliens and sometimes
spurred more aggressive be-
havior by illegal aliens.

DEMOCRATIC SENATOR Ted Kennedy speaking in fa-
vor of the recent immigration reform bill, as Florida Sen.
Mel Martinez (R) looks on from the back row. The bill failed
in the Senate, but is expected to resurface in 2008 as candi-
dates court the Hispanic vote.


Mexican border in Eagle
Pass, TX., explained, "So far
as the amnesty of 1986, when
it was announced this would
be done months before it ac-
tually happened, there was a
literal invasion across the
Mexican border. These mi-
grants wanted to be here
when it happened so they
could cash in on the deal.
Counterfeit document cases
soared and thousands pur-
chased papers to prove they
met the requirements to
qualify. This has been going
on this time around as the
new Act was ,being talked
about. Fraud was' rampant
and still is."
This is not a new phenom-
enon. In 1951, Dwight D.
Eisenhower, who was about
to launch his bid for the presi-
dency, wrote a letter to Sen.


William Fulbright in which
he quoted a New York Times
article that stated, "The rise
in illegal border-crossing by
Mexican wetbackss' to a cur-
rent rate of more than
1,000,000 cases a year has
been accompanied by a curi-
ous relaxation in ethical
standards extending all the
way from the farmer-exploit-
ers of this contraband labor
to the highest levels of the
Federal Government."
According to Herbert
Brownell Jr., Eisenhower's
attorney general, Ike was
very concerned about run-
away immigration. Brownell
said the nation "was faced
with a breakdown in law en-
forcement on a very large
scale. When I say large scale,

STUNNED! Volunteer officer demonstrates Taser at DFSPD supper presentation.


ATTENDEES EAT BEFORE DFSPD presentation last week.


DFSPD hosts second "Supper with Us"


By BRUCE COLLIER

The DeFuniak Springs Po-
lice Department (DFSPD) in-
vited all comers to the DeFu-
niak Springs Community
Center on Aug. 23, for its sec-
ond "Supper with Us" eat-
and-meet, an event Adkinson
has characterized as a
"shareholders' meeting." The
large turnout included sev-
eral municipal and county
elected officials. Most seats
were occupied as members of
the public first ate, then lis-
tened, then talked.
City Marshal Mike
Adkinson opened the presen-
tation with an update of the
previous year's accomplish-
ments at DFSPD. There
were "some good things and
some bad things," he said.
This year marked the
implementation of the first
24/7 dispatch service at
DFSPD, a renovation
Adkinson said was "done
faster than was ideal." The
system was up and running,
he said, in six months,
thanks largely to the contrib-
uted labor of police staff, and
to $100,000 worth of equip-
ment donated by the
Okaloosa. County Board of
County Commissioners.
Adkinson also paid tribute to
the help rendered by the
Emergency Operations Sys-
tem staff. DFSPD headquar-
ters on U.S. 90 is now open
and staffed around the clock.
The department also ac-
quired a fleet of new patrol
cars, painted in regulation
black and white, which
Adkinson said helps in pub-
lic identification and aware-
ness of police presence. Since
the new fleet has taken to the
streets, said Adkinson,
"people ask me whether
there aren't more police out
on the street."
Adkinson also stressed the
importance of training offic-
ers to deal courteously with
the public. "The number-one
complaint from the public is
rudeness," he said.
A grim recitation of the
year's narcotics activity in
the city led Adkinson to urge
parents to take an interest.
"Law enforcement doesn't
stop the drug problem. Fami-
lies stop the drug problem."
Recent months have seen a
record heroin seizure, discov-
ery of a flourishing cocaine
distribution ring, and more
than a few methamphet-
amine labs discovered and
broken up. Speaking of the


heroin, which was discovered
in the course of a traffic stop,
Adkinson warned, "That
heroin was intended for dis-
tribution in Walton County."
Adkinson also spoke on a
child-pornography investiga-
tion, the need for additional
patrol officers, and the
DFSPD's efforts at youth pro-
grams. "We haven't reached
our potential" in that area,
he said.
Questions from the audi-
ence included inquiries about
a possible Police Athletic
League program, which
Adkinson did not think prac-
ticable at this time. He did
express optimism for the new
Police Explorer program,
which he hopes may interest
local teenagers in possible
careers in law enforcement.
The Boys' and Girls' Clubs
may be expanding into this

Other questions included
concerns about illegal immi-
grants arrested for commit-
ting crimes while in the coun-
try, homeless people sleeping
on piers in the Lakeyard
area, and enforcement of fire
lanes and handicapped park!
ing zones on private property.
Adkinson also noted his re-
cent request that the city
council make it illegal for


registered sexual offenders to
live within 2,000 feet of a
school building.
One attendee asked
Adkinson what in-house pro-
tection and education the
DFSPD had to help prevent
Internet fraud involving de-
partment funds. Adkinson
said that all DFSPD finan-
cial matters are handled by
the city financial office, and
that there have been no prob-
lems as yet.
Responding to a question
about a new location for po-
lice headquarters, Adkinson
said that the city owns sev-

Assistant Editor's Comments


Save us, we're fat!
By BRUCE COLLIER

A recently-released study has placed Mississippi on the
wall of shame, with reportedly more than 30 percent of its
adult population classified as "obese." If you're like me, the
term has a certain fluidity to you. It is not easily defined,
even within the scientific community. The "commonly" used
yardstick would appear to be body mass index (BMI), which
even has a neat mathematical equation for determining
underweight-to-obese. Just do the math and presto you're
obese. However, clinicians also take into account other fac-
tors, including age, gender, ethnicity (uh-oh!), and other
fuzzy variables, leading to the hard-logic conclusion that
one is obese unless one isn't. You'll recall that Lewis Carroll
of Alice in Wonderland had a day job as a logician.
Mississippi will come in for a lot of criticism as a result
of this, along with the rest of the Deep South. National
media are ticking off the usual Southern demons gravy,
chicken-fried everything, fatback, and all-you-can-eat res-
taurants. For the record, a little quick research revealed
that the first all-you-can-eat restaurant in the U.S. was re-
portedly established in Las Vegas in the 1940s. A little more
research finds them in such moonlight-and-magnolia South-
ern cities as Portland, Seattle, New York, Los Angeles, Phoe-
nix, and Philadelphia. The conclusion would appear to be
that those places all offer nothing but healthy items to gorge
on, or that their patrons don't take them at their word.
Food classified as "Southern County Cooking" dates from
a time when everyday life entailed much more manual la-
bor than it does now. People ate to fuel themselves for a day
that could involve plowing, clearing land, chopping wood,
pumping water just to get a drink, hunting, and fighting
off occasional predators. All of the above were accomplished
by animal- or manpower. To get someplace, you generally
walked. This was the case everywhere, not just in the South.
Unfortunately, the culture of cooking doesn't evolve
nearly as fast as technology. You don't need a "farm-style"
power breakfast if your job has you sitting at a desk mak-
ing phone calls. However, this has no bearing on the fact
that a buffet of bacon, sausage, eggs, pancakes with syrup,
grits, home fries, jam and real butter is beyond many
people's powers of resistance. With respect to Nancy Reagan,
"Just say no to food" will never fly. On the other hand, I saw
a sign on a restaurant a few weeks ago advertising "lip-
smackin', finger-lickin', gut-fillin' food." Business was brisk.
This is a real problem. It affects health care, insurance,
business, families, pretty much anything you can name.
What can we do? Hey, I have an idea. Let's get the govern-
ment involved. An entity that can't always deliver the mail
is certainly well-qualified to make us slim and trim.
They can start by banning things. By government fiat,
soft drinks loaded with sweeteners and sugar can be made
to disappear, not only from school vending machines but
from all grocery shelves. Sugary cereals, candy, fatty meats
and' salty snacks, butter, cream, pastries, and fried foods
can likewise be made to go away with a wave of the legisla-
tive hand. That way, we'll have to get slim, because to do
otherwise would be illegal. It worked with booze during Pro-
hibition and it's been working with narcotics ever since,
right?
It reminds me of a line from the 1966 film, "A Funny
Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum." A Roman sol-
dier stops a man from trying to kill himself, saying, "It's
against Roman law to take one's own life. The penalty is
death!"
In Mississippi, the schools are, in fact, banning certain
foods and drinks in their vending machines, allowing only
"healthy" items. Considering what's in most vending ma-
chines, the machines themselves are probably bound for
the scrap heap. This begs the question of why anyone felt
the need to put them there in the first place.
Also, Mississippi is reportedly going to require 150 min-
utes of "physical activity instruction" per week. Apparently
it's been optional up to now. When did that happen? When
I was in school in Ohio in the early 1960s, gym class was
compulsory. The teachers all looked and acted like R. Lee
Ermey. As a fat kid, I used*to pray for non-life threatening
injuries in order to get a doctor's note. There was a black
market in them. "Optional gym class" would have hit my
ears like the Emancipation Proclamation. Apparently some
Mississippi kids grew up in similar circumstances, and then
got elected to school boards.
So, to sum up, the response is to keep bad food away
from the kids during school hours, and make them work up
a sweat for an average of 30 minutes a day. Then they'll go
home and spread thle gospel to their parents. The parents
will see the light, and the problem will go away. Next crisis,
please.
If it ever goes away, obesity will go away family by fam-
ily, person by person. It will not be legislated away, it will
not be mocked away, it will not be swept away suddenly. It
requires a cultural shift away from thinking that abundance
necessitates overindulgence, that convenience is paramount
in food preparation, and that just because a bunch of kids
want something, they should get it. Physical activity has to
be reassessed as something more than just another mar-
keting opportunity for shoe and exercise machine manu-
facturers.
The other night I heard a law enforcement officer say
that the drug problem will never be solved by police, but
only by families. If obesity, like charity, begins at home, then


the answer probably lies there, too. This is not intended as
a criticism of the family. On the contrary, it's an apprecia-
tion of its power to fix what can, and apparently must, be
made right again.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, AUGUST 30, 2007


,Letters to
Editor:
You don't realize how many people in our community care
about you until you have a time of need. Last Friday, August
17, our son, Jesse Cosson, suffered a biking accident. Although
he can't remember the details of the accident, the quick ac-
tion of his aunt, Rachel Thomas, may have saved his life and
kept his injuries to a minimum. The Walton County EMS and
firefighter support personnel arrived promptly after a 911
call. Although I can't remember all their names, they were
well trained, courteous, and gentle with Jesse. We would like
to say "thank-you" to these guys and the crew of the Air Lift
(Air Heart) helicopter and the staff of Sacred Heart Hospital
in Pensacola. Everyone reacted quickly to Jesse's head trauma
and other needs.
We would also like to say, "thank-you" to our family and
friends for their love, support, and prayers. Both of Jesse's
12-year All-Star coaches and their families drove to Pensacola
to offer support. Our co-workers came, called, offered help,
and prayed with us. Our pastor and his wife came to the hos-
pital as well as our family members. Also thanks goes out to
Dr. Chuck Stevenson for calling with information about Jesse's
fractured eye orbit. So many people have called. to check on
Jesse. We are happy to report that he is healing quickly and
will soon be back to school.
Again, we are truly blessed to live in such a wonderful com-
munity with so many loving people. You'll always be our small-
town heroes.
God Bless you all,
Doug, Tammy, Cameron, and Jesse Cosson
Editor:
As a young man growing up in Holmes County, the main
benefit of working for the government was a small but steady
paycheck, perhaps a small pension if you stayed the course,
and maybe medical benefits. The biggest benefit was the re-
spect of your fellow citizens and the sense that you were
doing something worthwhile. No any more! Working for the
government is now all about money, at least it seems that
way for some department heads and the elected officials.
A few months back, the Northwest Florida Daily News pub-
lished an expose about the inflated salaries and, in many cases,
the deflated accomplishment so some Okaloosa County gov-
ernment officials, and department heads. Wednesday, The
DeFuniak Springs Herald published an expose about a simi-
lar situation in Walton County. The people of Walton County
should be happy to know that their department heads and
government officials are getting their share of fat at the pub-
lic trough.
At the same time the officials in DeFuniak Springs were
slopping out generous pay raises for some department heads
and themselves, far in excess of what's fiscally responsible or
what their contributions to our welfare are worth; they were
mightily struggling with the idea of whether to grant a one to
three percent pay raise to the common workers, or perhaps
just a $300 bonus would do. This is laughable!
There has been a great wailing and gnashing of teeth by
the city and county officials over the recent, state-mandated
property tax cuts, arguing that the cuts will devastate their
budgets and their ability to protect the public. There were
dire predications of layoffs in the fire departments, police de-
partments, the EMS services, and other services. Not one word
was uttered about trimming salaries and positions on the
administrative side, though! The so-called property-tax cuts
did not keep Walton County from paying over $4,000,000 for
property in south Walton County for possible future use, or
for Okaloosa County from paying over $900,000 for land in
Baker for possible future use. The citizens of Okaloosa and
Walton counties can sleep soundly knowing that the "pork
barrels" are still in place and getting plenty of use.
An example of getting fat at the public trough is the bloated
salary of the DeFuniak Springs city manager. Starting out at
a salary of $65,000 per year, the city manager has managed
herself a 21 percent raise, in just two years, to a total of
$79,507. I guess that's why they call her the city manager;
she manges very well, at least for herself. Why does DeFu-
niak Springs need a city manager anyway? If the mayor and
city council can't handle the business of a small town of 6,000
people, they should look for work elsewhere! I notice that the
mayor and city council generously helped themselves to the
public trough also.
Another example of an excessive salary, for the work ac-
complished, is the head mosquito swatter down in south Wal-
ton County. I think $119,000 per year is a bit much for kill-
ing mosquitoes. I haven't seen a mosquito spraying truck in
my neighborhood all summer. I guess they are too busy mak-
ing sure the state does not spray for dog flies. What can you
expect from people that would prohibit the public from walk-
ing on public beaches!
What has happened to the office of the Walton County Sher-
iff? A few weeks ago an employee mishandled some paper-
work which resulted in the loss of over $20,000. Just recently
the same employee mishandled over $20,000, which resulted
in another loss. The two together come to over $40,000; that's
a lot of taxpayers money. This employee is not allowed to
handle money any more but has been re-assigned to other
duties more suitable to her abilities. A couple of other em-
ployees made the mistake of getting pregnant and got booted
out the door. Does the sheriff have something against babies?

the Editor
Editor:
Some weeks after the DeFuniak Springs Relay for Life
last spring, your newspaper generously published a substan-
tial display ad in which we were able to thank many of those
who helped the Relay succeed. This ad listed presenting spon-
sors, in-kind sponsors, and all the fundraising teams.
As publicity chair for the local Relay, I would like person-
ally to thank the Herald's publisher; editor, and staff for all
the support you gave the Relay. You provided news cover-
age of efforts to form and fill out the steering committee,
recruit sponsors and teams, and publicize the many and vari-
ous individual fundraising events themselves. And you did
this free of charge. I, would also like directly to thank the
staff of WZEP for their support.
I would also like to address a subject which may well be
important only to me. This is an apology I feel I owe to the
Herald. I owe this apology because I gave its staff every rea-
son -to expect me to cover the Relay itself and file a suitable
press release promptly for inclusion in the following week's
paper. This I did not do, and as a result the paper covered
the story, with no help from me, one week later.
Without intending to, I believe my negligence left two mis-
taken impressions: (a) that the Herald was lax in its local
coverage; and (b) that I could be counted on to ask for help
before the event, but to offer none after. I know the first
impression is without foundation, and I hope to prove the
second untrue.
Thank you again for all your help, and for letting me get
this off my chest.
Sincerely yours,
Dave Sinclair

Editor:
I attended the City Hall meeting Monday August 27, 2007,
which included talk about the Chautauqua building. I be-
lieve everyone working with this project is doing their best. I
appreciate all the hard work and time that has been put
into the restoration of this building.
Several people got up and said how they felt as well as
offered some historical facts. I am not from DeFuniak
Springs. I do, however, remember as a small child passing
through DeFuniak Springs on our way to Marianna and
that one of the best parts of the trip for my sisters and I was
stopping in DeFuniak and eating lunch and then going down
by the lake. I remember thinking how big and beautiful that
big building was. I never in my dreams thought I would move
to this small town, yet here I am.
After over 25 years, there are many reasons why we chose
to live here. One of the reasons was the historical part. I
also felt like this would be the best place to raise
children. One of the things about history is what does for
the future. For the future generations to know about the
past, we have to do our best to preserve things as close as we
can in its original form.
A couple of the vocabulary words that came out in the
meeting were "restoration" and "remodeling." I went home
and looked up both words. The dictionary definition of these
words are: res-to-ra-tion, : an act of restoring or the condi-
tion of being restored: as: a bringing back to a former posi-
tion or condition. The definition of re-mod-el,: to alter the
structure of : remake.
If I'm not mistaken, then restoration means to keep as or
put back as its original form and remodel means to alter
and make changes. Are we restoring or are we remodeling? If
we're going to restore it, then restore it. If we're going to
remodel, then let's remodel. Pick one. However, since the
building now looks different than it ever has before, by defi-
nition, we have not restored it, we have remodeled it.
In the research I have done, the best that I could tell was
that the building was built in 1909. I've looked at photo-
graphs of the Chautauqua Building as far back 1915. That
was the earliest photo that I found. I understand that cop-
per was used back in those days for many different things
and that it is a good material to use. However, if copper was
used on this building, you could not tell from any of the pho-
tographs I have come across. When you visit historic sites,
you are not looking for the new-and-improved look. You want
to experience the era of the time it took place. I know that to
restore, you may have to use modern-day materials to help
preserve it, but thelook, the outward appearance, should
reflect its original look, if it is being restored.
I heard some of the City Council members state that they
have not really heard from that many citizens. Well, this is
our city and that is our building. Let the City Council mem-
bers know how you feel. Answer this question Do we want
the Chautauqua Hall of Brotherhood remodeled (altered) or
do we want it restored? I like the idea of restoration for our
future generations.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, AUGUST 30, 2007

Boat launch at


Freeport to get


facelift


By BEN GRAFTON
At a relatively short meet-
ing in City Hall on August 23,
the Freeport City Council
first discussed the require-
ments for an ordinance deal-
ing with elapsed time from
the date that a developer in-
troduces a project concept to
the Council to the time a de-
velopment order is approved
and then to project comple-
tion. A principal concern is
how to handle the problem
that occurs when a developer
receives a commitment for
available infrastructure and
then holds the commitment
without moving forward with
construction of the project.
This action may unfairly im-
pact the costs for another
project if sufficient additional
infrastructure is not avail-
able. Because of the need for
input from City Planner
Latilda Henninger, the sub-
ject was tabled until the next
meeting.
Engineer Tony Peters re-
ported to the Council that
work on the sewage lift sta-
tion at Hammock Bay is com-
plete and start-up of the
equipment is scheduled for
Thursday, August 30.
Dawn Moliterno of the
Walton County Chamber of
Commerce presented an up-
date about the chamber's af-
fordable housing initiative.
She said that given the facts
that a lot of movement is tak-
ing place in the current hous-
ing market and that the
chamber's housing director
position is vacant, a decision
has been reached to cut back
on the program. However,
the chamber will establish an
Internet Web page that will




Saturday at
the movies

The Chautauqua Hall of
Brotherhood (CHOB) Foun-
dation will begin showing a
series of family movies at the
chautauqua building on
Circle Drive. The first mov-
ies will be on Saturday, Sep-
tember, 8, 2007, at 3:30 p.m.
Admission is free and the
first feature will be "The
Yearling," which was a
Pultizer Prize-winning novel
by Marjorie Kinnan
Rawlings.
Everyone is invited for an
old-fashioned matinee appro-
priate for all ages. An adult
must accompany all children
under the age of 12. Refresh-
ments will be available for
purchase.
The CHOB Foundation is
a non-profit organization and
all donations are gratefully
accepted. All proceeds will go
toward a fund for the instal-
lation of a much-need eleva-
tor in the Chautauqua build-
ing.

formation or check out their

make information available
to interested parties. The
Web page will allow people to
look up information on the
Wolf Creek Village project
and it will list links for check-
ing housing grant opportuni-
ties. The Web page is ex-
pected to be operational in
about sixty days.
Engineer Cliff Knauer
briefed the Council on the
status of a pro bono project
to provide a berth for the his-
toric ship, the Governor
Stone, and to, up-grade the
launch and docking area of
the Freeport Port Authority
property at the junction of
Lafayette and Four Mile
creeks. There will be a board-
walk along the west side of
Lafayette Creek, a concrete
launch ramp that will pro-
vide space to handle two
boats at once, a restroom,
improved parking for about'
ten cars with boat trailers
and a retaining wall to pre-
vent erosion along the east
side of Four Mile Creek. The
project cost is estimated at
about $850,000. City, Walton
County and grant funds are
expected to cover the cost.
Knauer asked for and re-
ceived Council approval to
ask for bids.
The water department
building bids have been re-
ceived but since one has been
temporarily misplaced,
Council action will be tabled
until the next meeting.
City Clerk Robin Haynes
brought up the subject of pro-
posals for a name for the old
route through the city when
the new U.S. 331 bypass is
opened. An application will
be submitted to the Depart-
ment of Transportation teo
have this section referred to
as Highway 331, Business
Route: It is understood that
the time for approval of this
request will be several
months.

What really matters when it comes to
planning a funeral? Is it who has the largest
facility or the biggest staff? Or, is it a funeral
home that offers the very best care for your
loved one, all the guidance and support
you need and a variety of service options?
We think that better service makes a better
funeral home. Come see for yourself.

Former councilman Ro N
McLeod insisted that the
plan to use topper wa-
widely-know and iniis-ted
that they had not "remod-
eled" the building, but had
"restored" it.
Ron Kelley, president of
the Walton County Heritage
Association asked, "Why
does the Hall have to be dif-
ferent than it ever was be-
fore? No one has answered
that question." Kelley also
spoke of his love for the struc-
ture and ask the council to
consider maintaining the

constructed. Businesswoman
Ann Robinson asked if the
gutters were in the best
placement for working condi-
tion, and if so, why not just
paint them white? The coun-
cil members and audience
were divided over concern
with historical accuracy, as

A motion was carried by
the council to move $50,000
into an account for the DSPD
to upgrade computer systems
and programs needed by the
police force. The money is
provided by $12.50 clause
from Florida Statute
318.21(10) that states how
traffic citation monies are
distributed. These funds
were earmarked only to be
used to upgrade computers
and programming at local
law enforcement levels.
When bids are approved and
work is completed this will

upgrades.

people who may have become
illegal aliens by overstaying
their visa, whose green card
has expired, whose paper-
work is not in order or who
are undocumented and have
been living with a family
member who is a citizen. It
can help, by proving to the
immigration courts, that
they are a functioning,
stable, law-abiding segment
of the population who want
to live in an American soci-
ety and deserves to be shown
leniency. The immigration
courts often try to help these
families but, sometimes not,
and on a case-by-case basis.
Hillard concluded his take
on the situation after his long
career in the midst of the im-
migration front lines, "I take
a rather simplistic view of
the whole issue. Our elected
officials have never drawn a
line in the sand on illegal
entry. No matter who is in
the White House, Republican
or Democrat, they both pan-
der to the special interest, big
business, and cater to vocal
organized groups who have
voting power. Not until the
most recent uprising of the
American people did the pub-
lic get any attention or re-
spect for their view on ille-
gal immigration. Having said
that, both House and Senate
politicians are already at-
tempting to write special leg-
islation to accomplish some
the ideas in the defeated
Comprehensive Immigration
Reform Act."
According to a article pub-
lished June 29, 2007 in the
NeW York Times, "an esti-
mated 12 million illegal im-
migrants," would have been
granted what many have
termed amnesty, if the bill (S.
1639) before the U.S. Senate
had not fallen 14 votes short.
For a $3,250 fine, back taxes,
ability to pass a background
check and learn English, a
path to citizenship for many
undocumented immigrants
through being granted tem-
porary worker status, would
have been opened and extra
funds for security and en-
forcement would have been
approved.
The issue holds small hope
of being revived until after
the 2008 elections. In the
meantime, communities
large and small will continue
the debate of what is best for
themselves and the nation.
Amnesty versus deportation
and the cost and means in-
volved is one of the most dis-
cussed topics from podiums,
pulpits .and porches across
the nation.

USA.

POLICE REPORT


WALTON COUNTY

SHERIFF'S REPORT


PUBLIC HEARING NOTICE
NOTICE OF HEARING TO REIMPOSE AND PROVIDE FOR COLLECTION OF
SPECIAL ASSESSMENTS IN THE IMPERIAL LAKES MUNICIPAL SERVICE BENEFIT
UNIT TO PROVIDE FOR CbNSTRUCTION OF IMPOUNDMENT IMPROVEMENTS

Notice is hereby given that the Walton County Board of County Commissioners will
conduct a public hearing to consider reimposing non-ad valorem special assessments for
the construction of impoundment improvements within the boundaries of the Imperial
Lakes Municipal Service Benefit Unit for the Fiscal Year beginning October 1, 2007.
The hearing will be held at 4:00 PM, or soon thereafter, on September 11, 2007 at the
South Walton Courthouse Annex located at 31 Coastal Centre Boulevard, Santa Rosa
Beach, Florida 32439, for the purpose of receiving public comment on the special assess-
ments. All affected property owners have a right to appear at the hearing and to file written
objections with the County Commission within 20 days of this notice.
If you should decide to appeal any decision made by the County Commission with
respect to any matter considered at the hearing or at any subsequent meeting to which
the board has continued its deliberations, you will need a record of the proceedings and
may need to ensure that a verbatim record is made, including the testimony and evidence
upon which the appeal is to be made. In accordance with the Americans with Disabilities
Act, persons needing a special accommodation or an interpreter to participate in these
proceedings should contact the County Administrator's Office at (850) 892-8156 at least
seven days prior to the date of the hearing.
The assessment for each tax parcel will be based in part upon the total number of par-
cel units and in part on the total amount of water front footage attributed to each tax parcel
on the date the assessment was originally imposed. The estimated per parcel unit amount
for the Fiscal Year beginning October 1, 2007 is $212.46. The estimated amount per foot
of water front footage for the Fiscal Year beginning October 1, 2007, is $2.29. A more spe-
cific description of the impoundment improvements and the method of computing the
assessment for each parcel of property are set forth in the Amended and Restated Initial
Assessment Resolution, adopted by the County Commission on August 8, 2006, and the
Amended and Restated Final Assessment Resolution, adopted by the County
Commission on September 12, 2006. Copies of the Capital Project and Related Service
Assessment Ordinance (Ordinance No. 2003-11), the Amended and Restated Initial
Assessment Resolution (Resolution No. 2006-76), the Amended and Restated Final.
Assessment Resolution (Resolution No. 2006-81), and the updated Assessment Roll for
the upcoming fiscal year are available for inspection in the Walton County Administration
Office located at 117 Montgomery Circle, DeFuniak Springs, Florida between the hours of
8:00 am and 4:30 pm, Monday through Friday.
The assessments will continue to be collected on the ad valorem tax bill as authorized
by section 197.3632, Florida Statutes. Failure to pay the assessments will cause a tax
certificate to be issued against the property which may result in a loss of title. The County
Commission intends to collect the assessments in ten annual assessments, the second of
which will be included on the ad valorem tax bill to be mailed in November 2007. Future
annual assessments may be prepaid at the option of the property owner.
If you have any questions, please contact the Walton County Administration Office at
(850) 892-8155, Monday through Friday between 8:00 am and 4:30 pm.

THESE WORKERS prepare the site for the 275-unit residential subdivision that will be
known as The Verandas.


THE VERANDAS as it appears today. Construction continues and foundations are still
being poured at the site, located on U.S. 331, just north of SR 20.


Part II


The changing face of Freeport


By BEN GRAFTON
Those who ply U.S. 331
through Freeport see a con-
stantly changing community.
The work on the U.S. 331 by-
pass draws closer to comple-
tion, as does the work on the
new City Hall. Now, travel-
ing north on U.S. 20 from
State Route 20, a bit past the
Freeport Elementary School
on the west side of the road,
one sees the early stages of
construction of a large
townhome develop-
ment. Earthwork is under-
way. Utility connections are
being installed. Foundations
are being poured. Stocks of
piping, siding and other
building materials are on
site. This is The Verandas at
Freeport.
Debbie Gericke, director of
Builder Developer Services
for Caldwell Banker, JME
Realty, says she is very ex-
cited about the development,
which is a project of Bayport
LLC of Atlanta. She says the
- project now underway calls
for construction of 275 two-
story units, which will range


in size from 1,143 square feet
with two bedrooms and no
garage up to 1,501 square


feet with three bedrooms and
an attached garage. The
prices for these units with


standard features will range
from $149,000 to $183,900.
Gericke also says that a fully


THE ARTIST'S conception of how The Verandas may one day appear The Verandas is
one of Freeport's newest residential subdivisions.


finished model with standard
features will be ready for
showing in about 60 days.
There is sufficient prop-
erty at the site to support a
second phase of development
of about 100 units. If this
comes to pass, the total de-
velopment will then include
about 375 residential units
and it will be home to a sub-
stantial number of new Free-
port residents.
Gericke says that consid-
eration is being given to a
design change, driven by
market demand, to convert
the garage of some of the
larger townhomes into a
master bedroom suite on the
first floor. The development
will include walking trails, a


swimming pool with pool
house and two small lakes.
There are no plans to use
palm trees in the landscap-
ing treatment.
Gericke believes the devel-
opment should fit the needs
of first time home-buyers,
teachers,, nurses, law en-
forcement personnel, and re-
tirees. The sellers will con-
tribute $2,500 toward closing
costs for buyers who use a
preferred lender for financ-
ing. In addition, nurses and
teachers may qualify for a
cash-back offer.
There is already a sales
center on site. For informa-
tion, call (850) 424 3297 or go

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, AUGUST 30000, 2007


Baton Rouge, LA


- A city rich


in history and diversity


Story and photos by CHUCK
HINSON
Sitting like any other
sprawling small metropolis,
Baton Rouge, LA is a city of
rich history, cultural diver-
sity, representing the people
of the state as the capital. It
has seen growth and expan-
sion unlike ever before, and
now is called home by more
than 600,000 people.
Nearly 300 years ago,
Pierre Le Moyne, Sieur
d'Iberville, led an expedition
along the Mississippi River.
The earliest records of the
city and surrounding areas
are found in these explorers
diaries and the journals they
kept.
They told of stories about
the land divides that were set
up by the Bayougoula and
Houmas Indians and the
blood of animals that dripped
from poles that represented
their boundaries. It was from
the phrase "red stick" that
explorer d' Iberville chris-
tened the new city, Baton
Rouge.
The city has served as the
state capital twice. The first
time was in 1846, but then
Louisiana seceded from the
union in 1861 and in 1862 fell
to the Union forces. The fed-
eral government of Louisiana
moved the capital to New
Orleans. It was brought back
to. Baton Rouge for a final
time in 1882.
One of the most colorful
characters of the state was
Gov. Huey P. Long. Audiences
are still thrilled when they.
hear about what he did as
governor and as a U.S. sena-
tor, before being gunned
down in the state capitol
building in 1935.
While in office, Long had


two very important buildings
erected that defined his
legacy as governor and sena-
tor of the state. The first is
the governor's mansion.
This structure was built to
resemble the White House,
which many thought was the
next move for the governor.
The home even came com-
plete with an oval office in
the front so Long could look
across a thriving and grow-
ing port city, and have a di-
rect visual shot to the new
capital that he was building.
Many, including Long,
thought they had outgrown
the old capitol that today sits
majestically over the Missis-
sippi River and is used as a
museum and location for nu-
merous functions and events
annually.
Long's $5 million
skysraper took only 14
months to erect and stands
34 feet tall. It is tallest struc-
ture then and today in Ba-
ton Rouge. After Long was
assassinated in the halls of
the capitol building that he
had built, he was laid to rest
on the grounds of the capital.

Besides history, Baton
Rouge has an endless array
of activities and sight-seeing
stops that one has to see
while visiting the "red stick"
city.
If you are an architecture
buff, then Baton Rouge is the
city for you to check out mod-
ern design and classic gothic
revival. There's the Roumain
Building with its majestic
overhangs and chiseled
marble, the stained glass
windows lit 24 hours a day
in the old state capitol build-
ing, the modern design foun-
tains at the River Center and


the dancing fountains that
line the entrance of the Loui-
siana State University Mu-
seum of Modern Art The lat-
ter is located just across the
street from the old state capi-
tol.
Baton Rouge's archeticture
and design, mixes just the
right element of old and new,
while keeping the true look
and feel of the Cajun city, in-
tact.
Like any other city, there
is constant construction and
high rise office buildings and
condos springing up all over
the city, but there is one
thing that reminds you that
you are still in Louisiana. It's
great smell of the food, and
those Cajun names that you
don't know how to say, but
you know means good food.
Baton Rouge is known for
its andouille and boudin sau-


sages, but it is the seasoning
and the cooking of that food
that draws crowds you to the
numerous restaurants that
call Baton Rouge home.
Tony's Seafood, DiGuilio's,
Fleur de lis and Gino's, all
serve up a mighty mound of
food along the mighty Missis-
sippi.
What better way to walk
off a meal, than to discover
the cultural life of the city?
For those who desire the
performing arts and cultural
aspects of a trip, Baton
Rouge has something to of-
fer everyone.
The Rver Center is a cul-
tural center that offers top-
name concerts, educational
programs, the symphony, the
theater and the Baton Rouge
Ballet.

After summer is over
and autumn is here,
our labor goes on
through ,out the year.

There's fields to harvest
and cotton to bale.
school is now starting,
with children who wail!

Fall will bring changes
that's felt in the air,
while shocks of dry corn
stand waiting out there.

Time for the family
to take a survey.
They'll need a good rest

Three invitation



for Christians

By DR. ROBERT M. JAYE


Three texts are found inl
the Gospels, which apply to
all believers. They are invi-
tations, commands really,
which we dare not avoid.
Matthew 11:28 reads,
"Come unto Me, all ye that
labor." The second is found
in Luke 24:29, "Tarry ye in
the city,...until ye be endued
with power from on high."
Number three is in Mark
16:15, "Go ye into all the
world, and preach the Gos-
pel." These three Scriptures
contain what I believe to be
three of the greatest verbs


in the Bible.
The first of these is "Come."
642 times the word "come'
appears in the Bible. "Come"
is what Jesus said to His dis-
ciples, calling them away
from their former activities
to Him and a new life. The
invitation is from the Savior
Himself, and is extended to
all who have not yet made
Him the Christ of their souls.
Another great verb of the
Bible is "Tarry." Having
called His disciples, He
wishes them to tarry, to re-
main for a season with Him.


Their tarrying was to be
taught. Jesus taught them
about what was to happen
to Him and to them. He told
them that since the world
hated Him, they too could
expect to be hated. Chris-
tians are now the most per-
secuted persons in the world,
even here in America. But,
we have learned from Him
as we have tarried and stud-
ied the Bible.
"Go" is third. To come to
Jesus is not all of it. Jesus
called His disciples, taught
them, and then sent them


out. If we only attend wor-
ship, some of us believe
that is enough. Not so. To
feel comfortable and sat-
isfied after church atten-
dance, and not go to share
the Word, is a tragic fail-
ure and a travesty on the
purpose of the church in
the mind of its Founder,
our Saviour.
"Come!" "Tarry" "Go!"
These are three great
verbs in the Bible. Come
to Christ. Tarry to learn of
Him. Go, tell others of the
Savior of the world.

Movie Review


The Devil and Mary Poppins: "The Nanny Diaries"


By BRUCE COLLIER
A mildly ambitious, cash-
poor college graduate takes
a job as a nanny for a family
of affluent Upper East Side
New Yorkers. While bonding
with their attention-starved
little boy, she repeatedly in-
curs the wrath of his self-
centered parents and learns
a few life lessons.
I have not read the best-
selling novel, by Emma
McLaughlin and Nicola
Kraus, on which this film is
based. Like the book, the
movie is also a duo effort,
both scripted and directed
by Shari Springer Berman
and Robert Pulcini. I under-
stand that there are some
differences and liberties
taken. So it has always gone,
ever since director Woody
Allen sardonically charac-
terized "War and Peace" as
"a book about Russia."
The film stars Scarlett
Johansson as Annie
Braddock, daughter of a
hardworking single mother


(Donna Murphy). Mom is a
nurse who has has put in
years of overtime to pay for
her daughter's education,
and, by implication, better
life. Annie graduates with a
major in business (good) and
a minor in anthropology (so
what?). Naturally she wants
to make a good living, but
she also wants to be happy
in her work. While fellow-
grad Lynette (Alicia Keys)
heads to the Lower East
Side's free-spirited lifestyle,
Annie strikes qut in her job
search. A meet-cute encoun-
ter with a little boy in Cen-
tral Park leads her to em-
ployment as a nanny at the
designer home of Mr. and
Mrs. X, so-called to preserve
narrator Annie's anthropo-
logical objectivity.
What starts out as a paid
lark in the "I'm a student of
life" tradition of clueless
graduates quickly gets seri-
ous. Annie shortly learns
that the Xs are not a happy
family. Masterfully played


by the excellent .Laura
Linney and Paul Giamatti,
the couple are wealthy, cold,
quarrelsome and all-but in-
different to their son, Grayer
(Nicholas Art). Grayer starts
out as a brat, but of course
succumbs to his desperate
craving for parental love, re-
luctantly but increasingly
supplied by Annie.
On the way, the film takes
aim at this brittle fragment
of New York society with la-
ser eye and razor wit. Dads
spend their days working,
making money, and philan-
dering. Moms spend their
days spending their hus-
bands' money, lunching, shop-
ping, spa-hopping, and relent-
lessly advancing their
children's futures. The latter
consists of angling their dar-
lings into wait-listed private
schools and spending a for-
tune on objects and entertain-
ments no self-respecting child
could even imagine, let alone
want. Things hit a low point


when Mrs. X books a pair of
French mimes as a birthday
party treat for Grayer, man-
aging to bore and frighten
him at the same time. Grayer
prefers the company of his
nanny, who has won his de-
votion by letting him be a
little boy.
Annie's life is rather far-
cically further complicated
by the presence in the build-
ing of a young man she calls
Harvard Hottie. Her live-in
situation makes it nearly im-
possible to date, which of
course makes H.H. even
more tempting. Also, Annie
has misled her mother into
believing she has a business-
type job and her own apart-
ment. When mom insists on
visiting for dinner, Annie en-
lists Lynette and her apart-
ment mate in a domestic sub-
terfuge straight out of "I
Love Lucy."
The trailers for those of
us without knowledge of the
novel paint "The Nanny
Diaries" as a kind of roman-


tic comedy/farce, a date.
movie with enough sweet-
ness and bite for both gen-
ders. It isn't all that funny,
or rather, it is, but in a way
that a stumped critic might
call "poignant." The Xs really
are lousy parents, not abu-
sive, just not there. Annie
gets a charge out of being
Mary Poppins, but she comes
to realize that Grayer is an-
other woman's child. Things
seem headed for a downer
ending. Naturally they don't.


After a last comical turn in-
volving a "nanny cam" con-
cealed in a stuffed bear, the
film ends wraps up neatly and
pretty hopefully.
I saw this film in the com-
pany of a woman. She cried. I
didn't. We both laughed. All
in all, that adds up to a suc-
cessful date movie. Besides, it
has Laura Linney, Paul
Giamatti, and lots of footage
of New York, America's most
romantic city. Try getting that
out of Michael Moore.

OBIUARIES


Cuchens
James "Alec" Alexander
Cuchens, 50, of Freeport, FL.,
died on Aug. 25, 2007. A de-
scendent of pioneer families
of Freeport and Portland,
FL., he was a man of strong
faith and compassion and a
member of Portland Method-
ist Church.
Cuchens graduated from
Freeport High School and
attended Okaloosa-Walton
Community College, but his
enduring love for the
streams, fields, wooded areas
and wildlife habitats devel-
oped outside of the class-
room. His mentors were his
father, James Kaymon
Cuchens, Sr., and his former
high school teacher, Kelly
Thomas. With these mentors,
he explored nature and
learned to appreciate both
it's beauty and it's purpose.
Cuchens was a family con-
servationist, and could often
be found with camera in
hand to record those "perfect
specimens". It was not un-
usual for him to relocate the
errant eastern diamondback
rattlesnake. To walk with
him became a lesson; he no-
ticed, explained, and height-
ened knowledge of all things.
Cuchens was a man who
knew his way around any
task placed before him. He
was a diver, a mechanic, a
carpenter, a soldier in the
U.S. Army, and captain of a
river towboat. Never turning
away from anyone in need, he
gave of himself freely and
completely.
Of all things that Cuchens
enjoyed in his life, none com-
pared to the joy that he found
while working with horses.
His spare time was devoted
to the training and raising of
many horses. With extraordi-,
nary patience he calmed
many a rowdy colt, soothed
the timid mare, and created
wonderful equine compan-


ions of them all.
In honor of Cuchens' love
of horses and his humble in-
dependent spirit as a man,
the family invites those at-
tending his funeral to wear
western attire.
Cuchens was preceded in
death by his father and
mother, James Kaymon
Cuchens, Sr. and Cleo Black
Cuchens; one nephew, LCpl
Daniel Chaires, and one
brother-in-law, Robbie
Prince.
Cuchens is survived by
his wife, Lisa Cuchens of
DeFuniak Springs; two
sons, Brian Alexander
Cuchens and Kenneth
Wayne Cuchens, both of
Freeport; one daughter,
Erin Elizabeth Cuchens of
DeFuniak Springs; three
brothers, James Kaymon
Cuchens Jr. and wife, Kathy,
of Baker, FL., Kelvin
Eustice Cuchens and wife,
Gabrielle, of Freeport, and
Anthony Black Cuchens
and wife, Emily, of
Wewahitchka, FL.; three
sisters, Karen Cuchens
Prince of Quincy, Florida,
Nanna Harriett Cuchens
and husband, Harry
Chaires, ofTallahassee, FL.,
and Pamela P. Cuchens of
Freeport. Also survived by
many nieces, nephews, cous-
ins, aunts and uncles.
Funeral services were
conducted Wednesday, Aug.
29. 2007 at the Portland
United Methodist Church,
40 Church Street, Portland,
FL., with Rev. Anthony
Cuchens officiating.
Those asked to serve as
pallbearers were Don Boze-
man, Harry Chaires, Roy
Allen Cuchens, Kaymon
Cuchens, Todd Chaires, and
Scott Chaires.
Honorary pallbearers
were Rosier Cuchens, Eu-
gene Cuchens, Anthony
Cuchens Jr., Jacob Cuchens,
Ryan Phillips, and Jamie
Cuchens.
Floral arrangements are be-
ing accepted.
Burial followed in the
Hatcher Cemetery.

LABOR DAY

Labor Day to celebrate the blessings we have known,
A time to. pause and thank God for all he has shown.

Thank God for all the freedoms we have and enjoy.
True freedom is of the heart and not just a ploy.

God to us the great commission he did give,
To work winning souls in this world is our job, as we live

So directs the Holy Spirit, Father and Son,
That our work on this earth is never done

We labor on this earth for worldly things,
But we should work for God and all his blessings

God the Father labored six days for all creations,
On the seventh he rested, this has been lost in this
nation.

Our forefathers worked and their word was their bond
This worlil shies away from work only interest is fun.

Labor for the Lord and in your faith be bold.
No one should ever say "of Jesus I was never told."

Enjoy the fruits of your labors and with God find peace
Labor for Him everyday and blessings never cease.

A stranger was driving
down a country road, and
he came upon an old man
looking at the ruins of his
barn. "What happened?"
he asked. "Roof fell in," he
answered. "It leaked so
long it got rotten."
"Why didn't you fix it?"
he wondered. "Well," he
said, "I never got around
to it. When the weather
was good, there was no
need. When it rained, it
was too wet to work."
Don't you think it's time
you got around to receiv-
ing the Lord? Put it off
and you'll perish.
The Bible says, "As
many as received Him, to
them gave He power to
become the children of
God, even to them that
believe on His name."

What really matters when it comes to
planning a funeral? Is it who has the largest
facility or the biggest staff? Or, is it a funeral
home that offers the very best care for your
loved one, all the guidance and support
you need and a variety of service options?
We think that better service makes a better
funeral home. Come see for yourself.

Bulldogs fall to Hornets, show improvement


By CHUCK HINSON
It seemed like Freeport
was going to beat the odds
and those in doubt about
their team this season, but
after Cottondale allowed
Freeport to rack up 10 points,
the Hornets came back to
take back the game in Free-
port, 16-10. Despite an avid
attempt by the Bulldogs,
Cottondale's Dezmond Gray
opened up the way for the
Hornets to take control of the
game.
Freeport burst onto the
field with high hopes and a
young team that was warned


not to take a loss to the Hor-
nets too hard. It would seem
to have been just the oppo-
site with the way the defense
shined on the field and Free-
port took control of the first
three quarters of the game.
The scoring did not get
started until late in the sec-
ond quarter, when Spencer
Martin kicked a 24-yard field
goal and set up the 3-0 lead
with a little more than seven
minutes remaining in the
first half. That kick was
made possible after Thomas
Coleman recovered a James
Oliver fumble.
With 3: 34 remaining, Lo-


gan Caudill recovered an-
other Cottondale fumble at
the Bulldog 10. They would
have to wait until the third
period before they could capi-
talize on the Hornets mis-
takes.
In the third period of play,
it came down to less than six
minutes to the buzzer before
Freeport's Caudill struck
again. This time he inter-
cepted the ball from
Cottondale quarterback
Ronald Shores, and ran it
back 43 yards for the Bulldog
score.
After Freeport's shining


first three quarters, the
tables turned and Cottondale
took the steering wheel. The
Hornets racked up 16 points
in the last of the third and
beginning of the fourth quar-
ter to take the lead and fin-
ish the game with their first
season victory.
Freeport struggled on of-
fense, racking up only 138
yards in all and only had
eight first downs throughout
the game. Cole Weeks was 8-
of-10 passing for 59 yards
and Spencer Martin had two
receptions for 17 yards.
Freeport totaled 79 yards


on 34 carries and Josh
Rhodes led the rushing with
27 yards on four carries.
The Bulldogs now turn


their full attention to Friday
when they take on
intracounty rival, Walton in
DeFuniak Springs.

Freeport-Walton game highlights .


opening week of season
By PATRICK CASEY cided advantage when play- spite slick conditions last Apalachicola and Carrabelle
Friday marks the begin- ing at home against the Bull- week. High Schools and also goes -


ning of the regular season for
high school football. The sea-
son opens with a match-up of
county rivals when Freeport
travels to Walton while
South Walton will take a long
ride to Carrabelle to face
Franklin County in their sea-
son opener.
Freeport beat Walton for
the first time in the regular
season last year as Spencer
Martin kicked a pair of field
goals and made the deciding
extra point in a 13-12 win
that made the Bulldogs
county champions in 2006.
Walton has won seven of
eight meetings dating back
to 1979 and has .had a de-


dogs in the history of the se-
ries.
Walton turned in a domi-
nant performance against
Holmes County in the Braves
34-0 victory while Freeport
played valiantly, but suc-
cumbed in the fourth quar-
ter to Cottondale 16-10.
Freeport is solid defen-
sively, but once again
struggles on offense. The
Bulldogs generated only
three points via the offense
and will have trouble with
Walton's size and speed. A
few turnovers would help
even up the contest for Free-
port, but Walton did a good
job holding on to the ball de-


Walton has revenge and
the home field on their side
while Freeport will bring
maximum effort up the road
for the showdown on Friday,
August 31, at 7 p.m. at
Everett Yates Memorial Sta-
dium at Walton High School.
South Walton will take
their 25-man varsity squad
on a long trip to open the
regular season as they travel
to take on Franklin County
in Friday's season opener at
6:30 p.m.
David Barron's squad will
square off with a Franklin
County squad led by Bill
Sharp. Franklin County is
the combination of


by the nickname Seahawks,
as does South Walton.
This battle of the
Seahawks should be a close
one and could come down to
whether Franklin County
can stop the pounding of run-
ning back Kenzie Clemmons,
who will be the focus of the
offense again this season for
South Walton.
Neither team has much
aepth and the heat and hu-
midity will wear down the
combatants. The team in the
best shape will likely pick up
their first win of the season.

Walton shuts down Holmes County 34-0


WALTON COUNTY YOUNGSTERS captured the 10- under baseball tournament at
Westgate Park in Dothan last weekend.


Local youth capture tourney


A group of Walton County
youngsters continued the
area's recent success in sum-
mer baseball as they cap-
tured the 10-under Back to
School Blowout tournament
last weekend that was held in
Dothan at Westgate Park.


The squad of ten local
competitors won all four of
the games they played as
they defeated Westgate
twice, including 9-3 in the
second meeting, Enterprise
15-1 and Marianna 11-1.
The squad was composed


By PATRICK CASEY
The Walton Braves de-
fense dominated the contest
as they limited host Holmes
County to 75 total yards and
a single first down in captur-
ing their 2007 Kickoff Clas-
sic in Bonifay on Friday.
Walton scored on their
first possession after a short
Holmes County punt set
them up on the Bluedevils
43-yard line. Issac Jackson
cashed in from seven yards
out to give Walton a 6-0 lead.
Walton's second posses-
sion resulted in another score,
as the Braves marched 54
yards to take a 13-0 lead on
quarterback Tarrell
Bramlet's 1-yard sneak.
Jackson added a 41-yard
touchdown run in the second
quarter for a 20-0 lead and
the Braves capped off the
first half scoring when Jus-
tin Crishon bulled in from
three yards out for a 27-0
halftime advantage.
Walton played all of the
players on their roster and


scored the last touchdown of
the game in the fourth quar-
ter when Will Brock caught
a short pass and broke away
for a 74-yard touchdown re-
ception from Larel Jackson.
Walton garnered 17 first
downs and dominated the
time of possession as Holmes
County committed three
turnovers and struggled to
move the football as Walton's
defense controlled the line of
scrimmage.
Holmes County could net
only five rushing yards on 25
rushing plays in the contest.
Holmes County's biggest of-
fensive play of the night was
a 46-yard reception by Devin
Bice from Bluedevils quar-
terback Matthew Carroll,
but even that ended on a sour
note as Issac Jackson
knocked the ball from Bice's
grasp at the Holmes County
22-yard line and a Braves
player fell on the ball to re-
cover the fumble.
On offense, the Braves
worked their spread offense


and hurry-up attack to the
tune of 391 yards and five
touchdowns, though they did
commit nine penalties on the
night with one turnover.
Walton used four different
quarterbacks under center
on the night with Bramlet
leading the way as he com-
pleted 11-of-15 passes for 155
yards.

The game was played on
a wet field as the Bonifay
area received heavy rain
leading up to kickoff. The
Braves had little trouble
with traction as the defense
set the tone with swarming
pursuit by the defensive line
and linebackers.
Walton will open the regu-
lar season at home on Friday,
August 31, at 7 p.m. at
Everett Yates Memorial Sta-
dium as the Braves, host
county rival Freeport. The
game can be seen live on TV-
24 for those who cannot at-
tend the game with pre-game
beginning at 6:30 p.m.

Georgia team wins LLWS


By CHUCK HINSON
South Williamsport, PA
came alive and brought back
some American nostalgia as
the Warner Robbins, GA
team beat Japan, 2-3.
Sunday's win gave the
American teams, three Little
League World Series cham-
pionships in-a-row.

Dalton Carriker said. he
couldn't feel his legs as he
rounded the bases towards
home during his eighth in-
ning homerun that sealed the
victory over the Japanese
team.


The 12-year-old slugger
with a mouth full of braces,
caught the attention of the
world as he made his dra-
matic way to the homeplate
where he was created by his
teammates and his coach
Mickey Lay. The homer came
after a 2-1 pitch from Japan's
pitcher Junsho Kiuchi.

Georgia's relief pitcher
Kendall Scott was impres-
sive with 10 strike-outs and
allowing only one hit over
five-plus innings to quiet
Japan's bats after Georgia
fell behind 2-0 early in the


game. He remained in the
game until the top of the
eighth when he was pulled
from the pitchers mound and
handed the ball over to relief
pitcher Zane Conlon.
Carriker was 0-2 with a
walk when he came up to
bat. He said he had whis-
pered a little prayer before
hitting the batter's box.
This was the third time
that the LLWS trophy had
been presented to a Georgia
team. Columbus won the
title in 2006. and East
Marietta won the crown in

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, AUGUST 30000, 2007


The ABCs of tackle


When you head out on a
fishing trip, especially if you
are bringing your kids along
for the first time, it's impor-
tant to have all of the proper
equipment. With many
tackle options available at
your local sporting goods
store, making the right
choices can seem daunting,
but all you really need to
know are the basics. The best
approach is to keep it
simple.
Rods and Reels For be-
ginning anglers, a spincast
rod/reel combo is the easiest
way to get started and its
push-button operation
makes casting a breeze.
Many manufacturers make
fishing combos that sell for
around $30. For young chil-
dren, there are also a vari-
ety of kid-sized rod and reel
combos that feature their fa-
vorite cartoon characters.
Hooks Hooks come in a


Lace up those running
shoes and get set to run (or
walk) around historic Lake
DeFuniak during the Loop
the Lake 5K Run/Walk, on
Sept. 8, from 7 a.m. until 10
a.m.
The event will be a
fundraiser for the 2007
American Heart Association
Heart Walk.
This will be the first run/
walk in DeFuniak Springs in


variety of sizes and are iden-
tified using a numbering sys-
tem that can be slightly con-
fusing at first glance.
Smaller-sized hooks are
numbered #20 to #0, with
#20 being the smallest and
#0 the largest. Hooks that
are larger that thp #0 hook
are numbered #1/0 (smallest)
to #20/0 (largest). If increas-
ing your chances of catching
fish is more important than
catching a "big" fish, then use
smaller hook sizes.
If you'll be fishing with
corn or other tiny pieces of
bait, consider using a
salmon-egg hook, which has
a shorter shank, than the
traditional bait hook.
Bobbers and Sinkers -
Bobbers and sinkers are
great tools for getting your
bait to where the fish are. By
attaching a bobber to your
line, you can control the
depth of the bait -just move


many years and promises to
attract visitors from through-
out the Panhandle and south
Alabama.

Information about the run,
as well as the race course and
registration form can be
found at www.chelco.com.
Click on the Loop the Lake
logo in the upper left corner.
Early registration costs $15
and ends Aug. 31. Registra-


the bobber up or down the
line. If you're fishing in a
group, you can adjust your
bobbers to fish at different
depths until you find where
the fish are biting. Bobbers
also "bob" up and down when
fish are biting and provide a
great visual aid for young
anglers.
Sinkers vary in size, shape
and weight, but all are de-
signed to get your bait to the
bottom of a lake or river.
Split-shot sinkers resemble
BBs and can be easily added
or removed from your line to
vary the weight. A variety-
pack of split-shots will give
you plenty of weight for most
freshwater fishing situa-
tions. Larger sinkers are
needed when fishing in the
bay or ocean.
Lures For the beginning
angler, live bait fished on a
hook provides the best oppor-
tunity to catch fish, but lures


tion from Sept. 1 until 7 a.m.
on race day will be $20.
The race begins at 8 a.m.
at the Amphitheater on
Circle Drive and ends near
the Amphitheater. Trophies
will be awarded in the follow-
ing categories: Runners -
male and female, first, sec-
ond and third; walkers -
male and female, 1st, 2nd
and 3rd; both categories, top
male /female.


Fighters to "Fill The Boot" for MDA


Walton County Fire Res-
cue will join fire departments
across the country by holding
a "Fill the Boot" drive to ben-
efit the Muscular Dystrophy
Association (MDA). Fire
fighters will hit the streets to
fill their fire boots with do-
nations in support of "Jerry's
kids." Fire fighters. will col-
lect donations from pass-
ersby at the intersection of
U.S. 90 and U.S. 331, and at
the Lucky 13 Truck Stop in


Mossy Head on SR-285. The
event will take place on Fri-
day, August 31, between 3
p.m. and 6 p.m. and again on
Saturday, September 1, be-
tween 7 a.m. and noon.
The fire fighters' goal is to
raise $4,500 for MDA during
the two-day drive. Leader-
ship in the department in-
cludes Fire Chief Eddie Riv-
ers, and union president /
MDA coordinator John
Lawson. The International


Association of Fire Fighters
is a National Sponsor of
MDA, and thousands of fire
fighters nationwide have
been contributing to MDA in
various capacities since
1954.
For more information
about the "Fill the Boot" cam-
paign or MDA,.please contact

lahassee District office at
(850) 681-6763, or visit the
Web site at www.mda.org.


can add some variety to a day
on the water. Soft plastic
baits, like jigs or plastic
worms, are great for finding
fish at or near the bottom of
a lake or river. Crankbaits
and spinnerbaits are cast out
and reeled in at a steady rate
and are ideal for finding fish
holding at certain depths.

Topwater lures, like poppers
and buzzbaits, are designed
to draw fish out by mimick-
ing a creature struggling on
the surface and can be par-
ticularly effective when the
water is still. Seeing a fish hit
a topwater lure is one of the
most thrilling moments you
can experience on the water.

need, when you need it. For

city endures during the sum-
mer months.
After a good meal and a
chance to walk it off, it's to
3rd Street for a little
nightlife. Though known as
a city that parties and the
home to the biggest party
school in the country, the
downtown life is usually a
little more laid back with an
older crowd, that caters to
those workingin the govern-
ment office complexes, or
staying at downtown and
hotels.

Hot spots include local
hangouts such as the Roux
House,' Boudreaux and
Thibodeaux, Rasputin's and
Churchill's Bar. All night
spots are just doors from
each other and offer the col-
lege scene locally-brewed
beer and even an extensive
wine bar.
If you don't want a night-
cap or one more local spe-
cialty drink like the Huey P.


Long Ice Tea, Baton Rouge
has two other night spots
where you can get lucky.
Lucky if all the numbers
come up, or you place the
right bet on the table.
The Hollywood Casino and
the Bell Casino, sit on the
Mississippi River on River
Road. These are the only two
casinos in the parish, so
when your luck runs out at
the first casino, there is only
one more place to lose your
cash or hit the jackpot be-
fore returning to the hotel.
The following are. several
other "must stops" while vis-
iting Baton Rouge and the
surrounding areas. Some
have an admission, but most
are free and open to the pub-

The Walton County Zon-

(ZBA) has granted a variance
to allow the construction of
a new cell tower near the Sa-

The new tower will replace
an antiquated micro-wave
tower that now sits just
southwest of the facility. The

Planning body


has growth


management


questions


By DOTTY NIST
A list of over 60 questions
is being sent to state and fed-
eral agencies and officials by
the Okaloosa-Walton Trans-
portation Organization
(TPO) regarding Florida's
new growth management
legislation.
In 2007, the Florida Leg-
islature passed far-reaching
measures aimed at relieving
traffic congestion, and ex-
panding and improving road-
ways. To accomplish these
goals, the legislation pro-
vided new tools, including
public/private funding part-
nerships and initiatives to
strengthen the link between
growth management and
transportation planning.
Many local governments
have been challenged in their,
efforts t,p apply some require-
ments of the legislation.
Composed of representa-
tives of county and munici-
pal governments in Okaloosa
and Walton counties, the
TPO is tasked with develop-
ing recommendations for the


use of state and federal
transportation dollars within
the urbanized areas of the
two counties.
.In a letter accompanying
the list of questions, Chair-
man Bill Roberts, on behalf
of the TPO, explains that the
organization is requesting
the help of the agencies and
officials "in clarifying and un-
derstanding the new growth
management legislation and
how it may affect the mem-
bers of the TPO."


"I think it's a great
idea, something we
really need to do," said
Cindy Meadows, TPO vice
chair.


The letter is being sent to
the state Department of
Community Affairs, the
Florida Department of


section 5.07.09 (A) (2), re-
quires all new commercial
towers to be located a mini-
mum distance of the tower
height from all property
lines, except where residen-
tial development on the ad-
jacent property is prohibited
for any reason.
According to Gilly Devel-
opment representative Wes
Power, a variance of 60 feet
on the north side of the pro-
posed tower and 206 feet on
the south side was required
for the project to proceed.
Adjacent property owners
attending the August 23
meeting had no objections to
the variance.
"This is very important to
the hospital's long range
plans." said Sacred Heart
Hospital on Emerald Coa( t
President Roger Hall. "This
variance allows the expan-
sion of our1 facility into the
area erl'e the current tow erl
no% sits."
"We appreciate what Sa-
cred Heart does for Walton
('Cu,nt'." aid ZBA('hnirminn
,Joe Johnson. "It is a pleasure
to work w ith -uch an out-
standing organization."
The new tower will be lo-
cated on Goldsby Road, ad-
jacent to the hospital.

THIS ANTIQUA'.TED :111-
CRO-WA\'E TOWER wiull
soon be 'reimoed to allow So-
c" -d Heart Hospital to ex-
pand.

Keith Howard


named Person of


the Year by FPRA


Each year, the Northwest
Florida Coasqt chapter of the
Florida Public Relations As-
sociation (F;PRA) recognizes
one person 'who has made a
significant contribution,
within the field of public re-
lations, to, the community.
The 2007 Person of the Year
is Keith Hloward, president
and CEO of Howard Group.
"Mr. Howard has been a
visionary for this destina-
tion, and hlis use of public re-
lations si.rategies and tools
have ensured the support
and success of his projects,"
said Tracy Louthain, presi-
.dent of t'he local FPRA chap-'
ter.
Throughout Howard's ca-
reer, Howard says his prior-
ity has! been creating high-
qualit; ', developments that
benefit the corn immunity. After
movinI g to this area in 1981,
Howaird saw miles of sugar
white sand beaches in a quiet
stretch h of the Florida Pan-
handl.e, but he also saw imiuch
more. He says he envisioned
an upscale vacation destina-
tion and a prime spot for re-
tail,, and in 1984, he devel-
oped the Market Shops at
Sandestin.
I:n 1987, Keith Howard
founded Howard Group, a
development company re-
spofnsible for various residen-
tia.1, retail and mixed-use
projects. At the same time
Howard says he began a na-
tionwide public relations
campaign to convince high
caliber businesses to invest
ifi this unknown region along.
the northwest Florida coast.
In 1992, he transformed a
v acant shopping center on
U.S. 98 into what is-now the
nation's largest designer out-
let center, Silver Sands Fac-
'tory Stores. This year, Silver
Sands is celebrating its 15th
anniversary. Silver Sands
has been an attraction for
visitors, as well as a host for


charity events and the local
arts community.
-The next idea coming to.
fruition is Grand Boulevard
at Sandestin, a new shop,
work, play-and-stay town-.
center for the beaches of:
south Walton. Grand Boule-
vard has been a vision of:
Howard's for over 10 years
and he has been employing
public relations strategies
leading up to its inception to
ensure his vision was a sucL
cess.
"Keith Howard's impact to
the local community is insur-
mountable," said Louthain.
"He understands the value of
marketing and public rela-
tions and constantly chal-
lenges his team to creatively
go above and beyond."
In addition, Howard is an
active member of the commu-
nity, serving as a member of
the Walton County Chamber
of Commerce, president ofI
the Destin Harbor Partner-;
ship Redevelopment Agency,
and as a founding member of
the ScenicCorridor Associa-!
tion.
Past POY winners include
Rob Babcock of Sandestin
Golf and Beach Resort and
Brad Pickel, beach manage-
ment consultant for the
South Walton Tourist Devel-:
opment Council. As the old-
est public relations organiza-
tion in the country, FPRA is,
dedicated to developing pub'.
lic relations practitioners.,
who, through ethical and.:
standardized practices, en:
hance the public relations
profession in Florida.

PAGE 2-C THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, AUGUST 30, 2007

SWMCD director says public :


can help themselves ',


SWMCD DIRECTOR GARY D'ANDREA explains some
of the ways the public can help thenmselv


"By providing pertinent in-
formation and with a little ef-
fort on the homeowners part,


we ca.n eliminate most of the
mosquito problems we are
currently experiencing," said


South Walton Mosquito Con-
trol District (SWMCD) Direc-
tor Gary D'Andrea. "The use
of chemical pesticides is a
last resort."

According to D'Andrea, re-
cent rains have not been
enough to alleviate drought
conditions in the county,
therefore most mosquito eggs
have not had the opportunity
to hatch. The exception to the
rule is the Aedes albopictus,
commonly,known as the
Asian Tiger mosquito. This
mosquito is black with a
white stripe on its back and
is the most active in the
morning and late afternoon.
The Asian Tiger has adapted
over time to take advantage
of human behaviors. The
Asian Tiger is primarily a
container breeding mosquito
and almost any amount of
water allows reproduction.
"We must change our be-
havior to control this mos-


quito," said D'Andrea. "This
insect has adapted to the way -
we live. Source reduction is
the most cost effective and ef-
ficient means of mosquito
control there is."

D'Andrea suggests the re-
moval of any container that
might hold water for the in-
sect to lay eggs. Rid your
property of old tires, rain gut-
ters that hold water, drain
plates beneath potted plants
and place bird baths in the
sun so that the water will
warm to a temperature not
conducive to egg laying.
"Pesticides use against
this mosquito is a Band-Aid,"
said D'Andrea. "Elimination
of water-retaining containers
is the cure."
Citizens with questions
concerning container breed-..
ing mosquitos are invited to
call the SWMCD at (850) LOIS JAMES, left, and Marilyn Coe are both members of

DEBRA KAY ANDER-
SON will perform "Love Let-
ters" at Seaside Repertory
Theatre on Sept. 1


DON GOODRUM will
perform "Love Letters" at
Seaside Reper tory Theatre on
Sept. 1.


Seaside Repertory The-,
atre (SRT) is presenting its
second annual September
Experiment, offering a one-
night-only performance Sat-
urday, Sept. 1 of A.R.
Gurney's "Love Letters," at
Alys Beach. The performance
begins at 6 p.m., and there
will be a hosted bar and din-
ner.
The play is a series of let-
ters, read by two actors, that
cover a lifetime's relationship
between a man and a
woman, from youth to matu-
rity.
Rep Artistic Director
Craige Hoover said, "The
September Experiment is
our opportunity to produce
unconventional theatre.
While last year's Einstein's
Dreams was a mind-bending,
multi-media fantasy, this
year's Love Letters is quite


the opposite: simple, smart,
and universal. We intend to
capitalize on the beauty of
the beachside green space to
create a peaceful atmosphere
for Gurney's sweet yet tragic
love story. Such a unique
piece of theatre requires a
unique setting, and we are
most thankful to Alys Beach
for making their grounds
available to us. I really can't
wait to see it myself'"
Performing the piece are
Debra Kay Anderson, last
seen locally as Martha in the
Rep's production of "Who's
Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" in
fall of 2005, and Don
Goodrum, who made his Rep
debut as Klinglehoff in this
past summer's production of
"The Underpants."

Lee Marchmanto head ERP


By LEAH STRATMANN
Lee Marchman is a happy
man. He was recently named
chief of the Bureau of Envi-
ronmental Resource Regula-
tion (ERP) with the North-
west Florida Water Manage-
ment District (NWFWMD).
The agency has been tasked
by the Florida legislature to
improve and implement new
policies concerning storm
water runoff.
"Storm water regulations
got its start in Florida and
the rest of the United States
in 1982 and was the best in
the nation at the .time.
Florida had regulations first
and has been the most re-
strictive in the nation and
until recently the 1982 rules,
which are the most restric-
tive in the U.S. still applied,"
Marchman said.
Storm water runoff is ex-
actly what it sounds like.
Cars contain several differ-
ent environmental toxic flu-
ids, all of which eventually
drip out of a car and go on
the roads and sooner or later
wash into the ground. "These
fluids will wash into water-
ways. and sewers ultimately,"
Marchman said. "There have
been 300 years of develop-
ment and there have only
been pollution controls since
1982.
"The 1982 rule is a qual-
ity rule only, meaning it only
deals with pollutants in the
water. It does not address
flooding. I always tell people
that under the old rules it is
perfectly OK to flood your
neighbor nostril-deep in wa-
ter and there is no penalty as
long as the water is clean.
These new rules only apply
to a development's neighbors
because the giant parking lot
has caused a problem. More
water is running off at a


faster rate and you create a
problem that didn't exist be-
fore the development.
"In 1995 the rules were
changed to add the flood and
rate controls and to tie the
wetland resources .into the
same permit. The iaew rules
took place in every N vater dis-
trict except the water district
in the Panhandle.-To develop
a project right now, you have
to get a dredge and fill per-
mit and a storm water qual-
ity permit from the Florida
Department of Envirionmen-
tal Protection (FDEP),"
Marchman said.
In 2006 the legislature
mandated that Northwest
Florida would implement
ERP by Oct. 1, 2006.
Marchman pointed oul that
even though the new rules do
not go into effect until Oct.
1, 2007 the district is not in
violation of the statute be-
cause there was not a d rop-
dead date for implementa-
tion.
"The water district does
not want to drag our feet be-
cause we are already so far
behind in permitting. It has
taken all this time to create
the rule. I have had to build
a brand new bureau up from
scratch. I have examples
from other water districts to
see how it is done. We are ex-
panding our agency by 2 0
percent. With the mandate
also came $2.76 million in
state funds for the creation
of this bureau. These new
people are at the ground floor'
of what promises to be a very
exciting time," Marchman
noted.
"I'm trying to make sure
everybody knows what the
new rule is. After Oct. 1 de-
velopers will have to secure
a permit from NWFWMD or
FDEP and there is a clear


activity split. If the project is
located entirely in the up-
lands, then it will go to the
water district. If it has some
wetland impact, FDEP will
oversee it. In phase two,
which adds the wetland re-
Ssource permitting aspect to
this new ruling, the activity
split will shift and most
likely the water district will
take on additional duties.
Phase two is. to be imple-
mented no sooner than Janu-
ary 2008. It will probably
happen, in July 2008 so we
can minimize the transition.
You may still have to get two
permits to build the develop-
ment up until phase two, but
after phase two only one per-
mit will be needed," he said.
"I've been working in
storm water all of my life, as
a professional engineer. With
the district I've been able to
set policy and do things never
done before because no one
ever showed them how. It's a
radical new storm water de-
sign recognized as being very
cool and one that very few
people will understand. One
of the good things about the
new program is we have the
lowest fees in the state. Un-
less you are building a land-
fill, the most you will pay is
$2,500. In southwest Florida
some permits are as high as
$10,000. A landfill would cost
$7,500, but the fees are very
reasonable," Marchman
noted.
Projects of less than 40
acres require a permit cost-
ing about $300 and small
projects will not be required
to be overseen by the govern-
ing board, which Marchman
hopes will translate into com-
plete application permits
which are supplied very
quickly. "All the permitting
will be done electronically


and from our database, even
though we have 90 days. We
should be able to supply a
permit in a matter of a few
days, because we don't want
it hanging around our office."
Dean Burgis of Emerald
Coast Associates, said, "In
general, the ERP process will
potentially cause the con-
struction timeline to increase
for the following reason/ex-
ample: Assume a property
has wetlands that are
planned to be impacted for
boardwalks or other minor
impacts that are not integral
to starting construction of
the building and infrastruc-
ture of the development. Cur-
rently, storm water permits,
etc. can be issued and a de-
velopment order received
through phasing of the
project to exclude the wet-
land impacts; and construc-
tion can begin. The ERP pro-
cess will require that all as-
pects are permitted prior to
issuance of the ERP, since
wetland review must be ac-
complished as part of the
ERR"
Permits will be issued
from new offices located in
Tallahassee at 2252 Killearn
Center Boulevard and a new
office opening in Crestview
at 800 Hospital Drive.

By LEAH STRATMANN
It was by equal parts so-
cial and. pure business as the
Democratic Women's Club of
Walton County met last week
in the home of their presi-
dent Grace Marse in Santa
Rosa Beach. After the busi-
ness of reading the minutes
and hearing the treasurer's
report by Sue Foster, new
members were encouraged to
identify themselves and their
precincts.
"We formed the club in
'July 2006," said club secre-
tary Marilyn Coe. "Today we
have 55 members and I un-
derstand there are several
others here today to join," she
said.
The club alternates meet-
ing sites from the north to
the south end of the county
in an attempt to lure as many
new members as possible.
"This ,is the first time we
have so many new members
come to meeting to join,"


Marse said.
"The main purpose of our
club is to support Democratic
women running for office,"
noted member Johnnie
Riley-White, "but the club is
also open to any men who
want to join us."
Marse told the women all
were welcome at the state
convention to be held later in
the year, but said, "If you
want to be a delegate to the
national convention, you
have to campaign. You can't
just say you want to go."
Overheard snippets of
conversation had attendees
discussing all of the declared
Democratic candidates for
presidents, with some extol-
ling the virtues of Barack
Obama, while others talked
up Hillary Clinton and John
Edwards.
Anyone who wishes more
information about the club or
who may want to join should
call 267-3733.


TPO FROM FRONT

TPO vice chair and District
5 commissioner for Walton
County.
This was the first TPO
meeting for new member
Wayne Carlisle, representing
the city of DeFuniak Springs.
Carlisle serves as a qity coun-
cilman.
In other business, another
Walton County resident, Su-
san Paladini of Santa Rosa
Beach, was appointed to one
of the TPO citizen commit-
tees, the Bicycle Pedestrian
Advisory Committee.


Escambia County Com-
missioner Gene Valentino is
scheduled for a presentation
at the TPO's Sept. 20 regu-
lar meeting. Valentino is to
make a proposal to advance
funding for transportation
projects on the TPO's prior-
ity list.
That meeting is scheduled
to begin at 3 p.m. and take
place, at the Niceville Com-
munity Center. Citizen at-
tendance and participation
at these meetings is encour-
aged.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD THURSDAY, AUGUST 30, 2007


PAGE 4-C


School is 1
in, kids
are gone
and par-
ents have
their days
back to
them -
selves.
Like thier
school-age
children, don't sit
around and be
bored, expand your
mind with some cre-
ative time.

Wow! The site of the yellow
school bus turning the corner
* of your street, the slamming
of the front door as your chil-
dren run to greet the yellow
school taxi and the quiet
hush that falls across the liv-,
ing room, just in time for
Oprah to come on the screen.
That only means one thing,
school is back in session.

Throughout the summer,
parents constantly told their
children to be creative, find
something to occupy their
time. Some parents even en-
rolled their little angels in
summer slammers I mean
summer programs where
they learned a variety of
skills, sports and crafts.
But now they are gone for
seven hours, and what do you
do when there is no one to
give commands to all
throughout the day? It is
time to get creative.
Many great inventions, ar-
tistic masterpeices and other
creative treasures, have been
conceived while some one has
been sitting at home and for
the most part, bored! It
might have-been an idea that
came to you months ago and
you did not have time to act
on it, or it might have been
an idea that just popped in
your head as the kids hit the
front steps of the school
building for the first time
this week.
Several artists have discov-
ered their fascination and


Ar (
-1


love for the arts. Local artists
that I work with on a weekly
basis have said that just be-
ing able to observe their chil-
dren playing, studying, or
just lying around the house,
inspired them to create.
From paintings of children
playing in the field or on the
beach, to metal sculpture
that depicts scenes of vaca-
tion and family outings, art
has brought those memories
to life for the creator of the
piece. It is also a way that
many artists have been able
to relieve their frustrations
and vent their hos utilities, not
just about their families, but
life and the world in general.
One artist that creates
soaps and lotions in
Andalusia, AL, told me that
her inspiration for creating
soaps, shampoos, deodorants,
sunscreen and other health
products was because of her
children and their constant
need to be cleaned. She said
that no matter what soap she
would buy her family of six,
no matter what shampoo she
lugged home from the beauty
shop, they never knew the
cost and didn't care..
That was her inspiration to
make her own. After buying
the ingredients, haying a few
trial runs and testing it out
on her family, she now trav-
els throughout the South,
selling her merchandise. She
says that it saves nearly
$2,000 a year on health and
hygiene products that she
was spending on her family.
Art is depicted and appre-
ciated through the eyes of the
beholder. That is also true
with the creator.
I have seen and talked to
many artists that have taken


pictures of
their children
on the beach,
^1 ~ at home in the
Y T S yard or gar-
_S lden, etc. Those
same parents
get other par-
ents looking
[ (t i at the photo-
graphs, and
those parents
in turn, want
them to shoot
a roll of film with their chil-
dren.
Before long, it is a full time
business, and it all stemmed
from one person's eye for cre-
ativity and catching the in-
nocence of a child in photo.
Other artists start out by
making clothes for their ba-
bies and end up selling them
at fine department stores
and boutiques. When it
comes to children, art and
uniqueness are two ele-
ments that sell like hotcakes.
For many of those acciden-
tal artists that are now cre-
ating for a living, it was a
mistake gone great as they
stumbled across their hidden
talents and then decided to
share it with the world.
From best selling novels, to
the newest line of children's
furniture, someone, some-
where had to have had some
free time to create and de-
sign, and now is making mil-
lions.

So the next time the kids
have left for school and you
are your sitting there with
nothing to do, pull out a paint
brush, a pen, a needle and'
thread, or a canvas, and start
creating. Ideas that you see
in the department stores, the
artwork that hangs in muse-
ums, the novels you buy at
Barnes & Noble and the out-
fit you try on at the mall, all
had to come from someone's
creativity and imagination.
Try your hand at art and
design and instead of count-
ing the hours until the kids
get back home from school,
you could have created a
masterpiece or an idea that
could put you in the history
books that those same kids
read in their schoolrooms!


SUNNY DAYS ARE HERE again. This big sunshine character is leading the parade of

acoustic music with roots
that date back as far as

certs are available in ad-
vance for $12 for adults and

Boys & Girls Clubs


Day for kids is



September 15


There's a "day" for just
about everyone; Mothers',
Fathers', Grandparents' and
groundhogs, but there's one
important group that isn't
recognized: Our kids!
Boys & Girls Clubs around
the country have created
Boys & Girls Clubs Day for
Kids, an annual event cel-
ebrating the value of mean-
ingful time between parents
and children. Millions of par-
ents and kids will participate
in some 2,000 events at Boys
& Girls Clubs and other lo-
cations nationwide.
Our local event will be held
at the Emerald Coast Confer-
ence Center on Okaloosa Is-
land from 10:30 a.m. until
1:30 p.m. on Saturday, Sept.
15. The entire event is free
of charge including lunch
from several local restau-
rants such as Taco Bell,
McDonalds, Buffalo's Reef,
Helenback Pizza and several
others. Tentatively sched-
uled events include Home
Depot's kid'p project table,
Nike Factory Store sports
clinic, Indian Temple Mound


Museum Hands on History
table, Zakari the balloon art-
ist, Imagine Faces face paint-
ing, many arts and' crafts
booths, carnival activities
and games. The Boys & Girls
Club Day for Kids local part-
ners have provided all the
food, drinks, snacks, projects
and prizes.
They include Wal-mart,
Target, kinnection.com, Cox
Communications, Cumulus
Broadcasting, The Boys &
Girls Clubs of the Emerald
Coast, Eglin Youth Services
and Hurlburt Youth Services.
Boys & Girls Club Day for
Kids will provide an oppor-
tunity for adults to take a
break, celebrate and renew
their commitment to their
children. In the end, it's not
so much what you do that
matters, but that you simply
spend some meaningful time
with your kids, not just on
one day, but throughout the
year.
Contact at (850) 862-
1616 for more information
about the local Boys & Girls
Club Day for Kids event.
