Born in the USA


(Part three in the Herald's
series on the effect of illegal
aliens in Walton County)
By ALICIA LEONARD
There is a simple way to
become a citizen or be eligible
to run for president of the
United States. One must be
"Born in the U.S.A." During
the summer of 1984, Bruce
Springsteen belted out his
birthright tune, proclaiming
of being born an American
citizen. The roots to the cho-
rus and the title of the song,
"Born in the USA," are firmly
planted in the 14th Amend-
ment to the Constitution of
the United States.
The Civil War had effec-
tively ended onApril 9, 1865.
Afterwards, many Southern
states begin to pass "Black
Codes." These laws placed a
variety of restrictions, on a
former slave's freedoms: they
established vagrancy and ap-
prenticeship laws; blacks
could not serve on juries, own
firearms, and were forbidden
to testify against whites or
hold large meetings. With
states setting their own im-
migration polices, questions
quickly arose as to the way
to guarantee freed slaves and
their families protective citi-
zenship under federal law in
the hostile post-Civil War cli-
mate.
Thus the 14th Amend-
ment to the Constitution of
the United States was born.
The 14th Amendment ex-
tended liberties and rights
granted by the Bill of Rights
to former slaves.


The 39th Congress pro-
posed the amendment to the
Constitution to the legisla-
tors on June 13, 1866 and
ratification was completed on
July 9, 1868. Section 1.
states, "All persons bornor
naturalized in the United
States, and subject to the ju-
risdiction thereof, are citi-
zens of the United States and
of the state wherein they re-
side. No state shall make or
enforce law which shall.
abridge the privileges or im-
munities of citizens of the
United States; nor shall any
state deprive any person of
life, liberty, or property, with-
out due process of law; nor
deny to any person within its
jurisdiction the equal protec-
tion of the lawk."
Every person from that
point forward, if.born in the
United States, was consid-
ered a citizen of this country,
except for children born to
foreign dignitaries and dip-
lomats who pledged their al-
legiance to their home coun-
try and were in the U.S. to .
represent that country.
Senator Jacob Howard, a
co-writer of the amendment,
wrote a statement to clarify
this issue in 1866, stating,
"This will not, of course, in-
clude persons born in the
United States who are for-
eigners, aliens, who belong to
the families of ambassadors,
or foreign ministers accred-
ited to the Government of the
United States, but will in-
clude every other class of per-
sons."
According to the National


Plan for



"tree farm"



subdivision



gets nod


By DOTTYNIST
"The entire property is a
tree farm," Walton Planta-
tion developer Henry Maclin
explained.
Plans for the.6,469-plus-
acre property, located near
the far northwest corner of
Walton County, include 148
single-family homes. How-
ever, Maclin adamantly
stated that home construc-
tion would be restricted to log
cabins and "board and bat-
ten" homes of materials simi-
lar to timber harvested on
the property.
"There will be no concrete
allowed," he added.
The developer's comments
were addressed to the Wal-
ton County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC) on
Aug. 28 as the commission-
ers considered approval of
conceptual plans for the de-
velopment.
Walton Plantation is still
dealing with the issue of a
stop-work order placed on
the property last year by
Walton County Code En-
forcement.

"There will be no
concrete allowed,"
said Maclin.


94922 73172


Local attorney Ken
Goldberg, representing the
development, commented
that a settlement is in place
to resolve the issue and will
be brought before the Walton
County Code Enforcement
Board on Sept. 16. On Aug.
.28, the commissioners were
divided over whether to con-
sider approval in advance of
final resolution of the alleged
violation.
Pat Blackshear, county
planning and development
services director, quoted a
county code section stating
that no permits and no devel-
opment order may be issued
for property where an unre-
solved code violation exists.
Goldberg countered that
what was being sought at
that point was approval of a
conceptual plan, not a permit
or development order. He
added that approval of a de-
tailed plan would be required
before anything "can happen
on the property."
A motion by District 1
Commissioner Scott
Brannon to table the item
failed in a 3-2 vote, resulting
in the commissioners pro-
ceeding to hear the proposal.
Located off CR-2 east of
CR-147, the Walton Planta-
tion property is classified as


Constitution Center (NCC),
only the United States,
Canada, Mexico, Brazil and
Argentina still allow birth-
right citizenship. The birth-
right citizenship issue has
become a problem in United
States due to the ever-in-
creasing amount of illegal
alien mothers having chil-
dren America. Countries all
across the world, including
the Netherlands, Portugal,
Spain, Sweden, the United
Kingdom, Austria, Belgium,

JIM BREWER, chief financial officer of HealthMark said
the hospital has taken careful precautions, but still loses thou-
sands of dollars each year.

large-scale agriculture on the
county's future land use map.
Per county code, tree farms
are an appropriate use
within that category.
Maclin stated that the
property is certified as a tree-
farm under the state system.
He explained that the prop-
erty was in silviculture (tree
farming) when he and his
partners bought it several
years ago. He said that 148
lots of four acres and larger
are to be sold to the public,
with most of the property re-
maining in silviculture, dedi-
cated as such through re-
corded easement.


.Not only will trees con-
tinue to be cut; from this dedi-
cated area, llot owners will
agree to trees being har-
vested from their individual
property, Maclin added.
A neighbor of the property,
owner of a horse farm,
complimented the develop-
ment as "a cl ass act," the only
public comment on the pro-
posal.
A motion by District 3
Commissioner Larry Jones
for approval of the concep-
tual plan was approved 4-0,
with Brannon not present for
the vote and all other com-
missioners voting in favor.

Council

discusses

longevity,

salaries
By ALICIA LEONARD
On Aug. 30, the Defuniak
Springs City Council recon-
vened to discuss longevity
bonus issues and pay raises.
These issues were held over
due to time constraints from
the Aug. 27; City Council
meeting.
City Manager Kim Kirby
opened the dialogue by askl
ing the Council for directionn
concerning salaries and lon-
gevity issues." The Council-
in prior sessions, discussed
longevity bonus as an incefin
tive and retention device to
keep good employees.
The city has 54 employees
with fewer than five years
service and 29 with five to 20
or more years of service. The
discussion moved onto three
options to pay a longevity
bonus from first year of ser-
vice, to pay after five years
service or to pay from this
year forward and not count
years already accumulated,
Kirby spoke on the issue,
"If we are going to recognize
longevity, we need to reward:
the employees with past ser-'
vice and terms with the city.":
In a memo to the Council
dated Aug. 30, 2007, Kirby
stated, "This is the most logi-
cal method to recognize ser-'
vice and be fair to all, is to:
award each employee for,
their prior years of service,:

Police arrest suspect in

library burglary and theft


THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 6, 2007


Officers of the DeFuniak
Springs Police Department
(DFSPD) have arrested o
suspect in last week's bur-
glary of the DeFuniak
Springs branch of the Walton
County library on Circle
Drive. The burglar had made
a forced entry into the library
through the doors. An undis-
closed amount of cash was
taken, along with four an-
tique weapons displayed on
the wall. The weapons taken
were a medieval broadsword,
a pike head, a hunting sword,
:and a bayonet from a 19th
century French rifle.
Investigation led officers
to a suspect, who was ques-
tioned. The interrogation led
officers to the stolen an-
tiques, all of which were re-
covered in a wooded area


near South 17th Street and
Van Buren Avenue.
Police have arrested De-
Funiak Springs resident Eric
Lamar McCullough,19, for
the burglary of the library.
McCullough has been
charged with biu rgl.i \. jri nd
theft, and criminal mischief
for allegedly breaking into
the library and stealing the
cash and antique weapons. It
has not yet been confirmed
if McCullough is responsible
for any of the previous six
burglaries last week at other
locations. The investigation
of those incidents continues.
The DFSPD has asked,
anyone with any information
on any of the other recent
burglaries to call the
DFSPD's investigations divi-
sion at 892-8513 or Crime


Stoppers ofWalton County at
(866) 718 TIPS. Calls can
be made anonymously.


BOOKED FOR BUR-
GLARY of library is Eric
Lamar McCullough, of DeFu-
niak Springs.

A late afternoon lightning
strike apparently ignited an
island fire hear the commu-
nity of Bunker Creek. Bun-
ker Creek is located north of
Point Washington near the
intracoastal waterway. Ac-
cording to the Florida Divi-
sion of Forestry(DOF) the
fire poses no threat to any
dwellings or personal prop-
erty. DOF officials planned to
fly over the area on Wednes-

Helicopter



pilot home



from Iraq _


By BRUCE COLLIER
Walton County resident
Melanie Nipper is taking it
more easy these days than
she has in some time. Nipper
holds the rank of chief war-
rant officer 4 (CW4) in the
U.S. Army. For the past 17
months, her principal duty
has been piloting a Black
Hawk helicopter for the
131st Aviation Regiment,
based in Balad, Iraq. Balad
is located about 30 miles
northeast of Baghdad.
Nipper had spent eight
years in the active military,
was inactive for four, then
returned to active service as
a National Guard reservist.
She returned to the United
States in mid-August.
Nipper and her husband,
James, own a 420-acre prop-
erty in north Walton County.
In addition to their resi-
dence, they have constructed
an aircraft hangar to house
their private plane. James is
a former paratrooper. In ad-
dition to a private aviation
company, the two are consid-


ering converting part of the
land into a drop zone for
parachuting events.
While in Iraq, Nipper's
primary mission was "to
move passengers safely." She
lists her "passengers" as
"troops, generals, contrac-
tors, weapons, dogs any-
thing that will fit." Nipper
also flew what the military
designates as "hero mis-
sions," transportation of the
remains of fallen soldiers for
return to the United States.
Nipper also participated
in a tradition of carrying
American flags in her heli-
copter on missions. She then
sends the flag, along with a
certificate verifying where it
was flown, to friends, rela-
tives, clubs and other sup-
porters. She says she has
done this with about 20 flags.
Nipper expressed regret
that she was not able to see
any of Iraq'except by air. "I
served in Bosnia, Korea and
Haiti and learned a lot of
their culture," she says, "but
I never traveled in Iraq ex-

cept by air."
The Nippers are also wel-
coming a new family member
in the form of a dog that
James recently adopted from


a rescue service. The mixed
breed, temporarily answer-
ing,to "Doggy-dog" until a
permanent name can be cho-
sen, has the run of the Nip-


pers' property.
Nipper will shortly come
off of active status, and will
not be eligible to be sent out
again for two-and-a-half


years. Some of her fellow sol-
diers are on their fourth or
fifth Itour of duty. "I don't
know how they do it," she
says.


Walton County awarded $1 million grant


Walton County Fire Res-
cue received a call from U.S.
Senator Bill Nelson's office
and U.S. Representative Jeff
Miller's office this week an-
nouncing Homeland Secur-
ity's decision to allocate one
million dollars to Walton
County for a new First Re-
sponder radio system.
This is the highest allot-
ment for which counties the
size of Walton can qualify
from Homeland Security's
2007 Assistance to
Firefighters Grants (AFG).
Walton County Fire Chief,
Eddie Rivers, says the grant
will significantly impact
emergency response commu-
nications during fires and
other emergencies. "Our cur-
rent radio system has prob-
lems operating properly in
certain rural spots in our
county, just like public cell
phones," he says. "This can
be a seriotis problem when


firefighters are trying to com-
municate with each other on
the way to a burning build-
ing." In addition, the current
system is fragmented where
the South Walton Fire Dis-
trict and Freeport Fire De-
partment are operating on,
different communication sys-
tems than firefighters in
other regions of the county.
"The Hdmeland Security
Grant enal.bI-h: us upgrade
the entire county radio com-
munication system where all
Walton County firefighters
will operate on one system,"
says Chief Rivers, "and no
firefighter will have commu-
nication problems in any ru-
ral area when the system is
installed."
In addition, Chief Rivers.
says the new system will en-
able the county's emergency
response team to communi-
cate with response teams on
the state level during emer-

Penny wise and


pound foolish

By RON KELLEY
At a time of real and serious concerns at City Hall, this
seemed a simple problem with a quick solution. During the
"restoration" of a historic city building, white rain gutters
and downspouts were removed and more expensive copper
gutters and pipes were installed. The two options were to
either correct it or leave it.
Logically, for citizens that feel strongly about preserv-
ing a historic landmark, such a change, even well-inten-
tioned, was bound to upset and offend. For those who don't
care either way, and even for those who like the new style -
no one would have been offended if new white aluminum
gutters and downspouts had been used instead. They work
just as well and the correction could be accomplished in
two days or less and funded through the sale of the expen-
sive copper.
Problem vanishes, goodwill is restored. Simple mistake,
quick solution.
Exactly the kind of threat government studiously avoids.
The City Council, even noting the negative letters and
comments they've heard from the citizens, refused to budge
and offered no compromise. The architect, a free consult-
ant, fell on his sword and offered to take the blame, saying,
"I take.all responsibility for decisions made as far as archi-
tecture and choice of the new copper gutters." A noble sen-
timent, but the responsibility was never his to take. The
law forbids it, free or not. Instead, it is the City Council's
responsibility and, through them, staff's responsibility to
approve each and every plan and make sure that plan is
carried out correctly.
I don't know what's going on over at City Hall or who is
in charge. The whole thing puzzles me.
I sure am disappointed to see that the Council wouldn't
even agree to give the already low-paid workers a meager
bonus for the years they've toiled in the hot sun and cold
rain. The city couldn't possibly afford to buy that kind of
loyalty, yet they squander these riches without a thought.
Stingy about small expenditures and extravagant with
large ones. Before the dollar bill, when early colonists used
British pounds instead, Ben Franklin would have called it
"Penny wise and pound foolish."
I know when I can't improve on a line.

donation to the team during one of their many fundraisers
and also to the following businesses: Prudential Merrifield &

Editor:
As we just passed the Fourth'of July celebration, I am
astounded by the differences in my life and this holiday in
just the past few years. DeFuniak Springs commemorated
the holiday with a wonderful event for all ages around the
town lake. The fireworks were very festive and the whole
town showed up. The local bars and "mom and pop businesses"
loved the festivities on such a hot summer day and so did
their profit margins. To me, it was middle America, USA.
It reminded me of my Fourth of July celebrations just a
few years ago. I lived in a small resort community in north-
ern California. There were no fireworks. We lived on the Pa-
cific Ocean with a beautiful pier but there were no fireworks.
The city council decided it didn't want the traffic and liabil-
ity. This year, the coastline was fenced off for miles so those
who bought fireworks could not go to the safest place in town
to let them off. However, the city does hold a firework display
for it's own city birthday each year complete with festivities
on that same pier. I thought that was odd not to celebrate
the country's heritage.
There was an event held each year, however, that shook
me to the core. The proverbial Town Clock was the site of its
annual Fourth of July Flag Burning Just-Cuz-I-Can celebra-
tion. This immediately followed the haphazardly-formed pa-
rade of renown panhandlers and indigents disrespectfully
dragging the flag down the street. No one stopped this spec-
tacle, no permit was needed for this gathering, I would imag-
ine. Apparently, celebrating the Fourth with fireworks isn't
seen to be freedom of expression, but burning and dragging
the flag is okay and was even applauded as it
occurred. Neither of these was sponsored by the city, but it
was .the city who chose to allow it, while banning a more
traditional way of honoring our country and its history.
Those were the Fourth of July celebrations I've had for
the last 16 years. Now I am in DeFuniak where,just a month
ago, the locals lined the streets for a local boy killed while
defending the rights of my former neighbors to burn and drag
our flag each year. As I stood with a friend who was also from
a very liberal state, we saw each other's tears and knew what
we each were thinking. We hadn't seen this kind of respect
for our country in such a plain and simple way in a long
time...if ever.

Correction

Last week's Beach Breeze ran a photo and caption, incor-
rectly identifying DeFuniak Springs City Council mem-
ber Wayne Graham as "Wayne Carlisle." The person in
the photo is Wayne Graham, who was recently appointed
to the Okaloosa-Walton Transportation Planning Orga-
nization. We regret the error.

Editor:
I am following up on my previous letter regarding dogs
being tied up and animal ordinances for Walton County.
I have contacted everyone I can think of, including the
governor and have been told to contact my local Commis-
sioner Larry Jones.
I explained to him about how Walton County is lacking in
many animal abuse laws/ordinances including the one where
it is legal to tie an animal out as long as you provide a dog
house. If anyone thinks tying a dog out in 100+ degree heat,
whether they have food and water or not, is not animal abuse,
then they are delusional.
Mr. Jones told me he "raised the issue at the August 14
board meeting and the board directed staff to review our
ordinance and make recommendations of needed changes."
I had asked him to let me know what he did, but I had'to
actually contact him. He has yet to contact me directly with
any updates.
I then asked him what his position was on this matter
and his response via email, "I actually have not formed an
opinion as to this matter. While 'I have read the informa-
tion you provided me, I don't believe that we will solve a
problem by simply inserting into our ordinance a provision
that prohibits dogs from being tied as dogs may then be
penned without sufficient shade or water. I don't disagree
that there is room for improvement, thus my request for
staff to review those, as well as other ordinances to see how
ours may be improved, and hopefully this effort will do that."
I don't think much thought was given to this answer, and
I get the impression this is very low priority for Mr. Jones
and the board.
Sadly, one of the basic rules of .life seems to be, "Yod can't
legislate common sense." I -
We have animal control, but without good laws and ordi-
nances, their hands are tied, and Walton County is lacking
in many areas.

Editor:
Who does this county think it is fooling?
Code enforcement and 'this county government is being
ran by people whom are violating more laws than there are
codes. This county's government has passed ordinance after
ordinance that violates everyone rights here in Walton county.
This county violates the comprehensive plan and code books
on such a high scale that if you miss a meeting, your prop-
erty can have a change of use over night. Don't go out of
town, don't get sick, when you return you may have a bor-
row pit in your neighborhood that was put there in violation
of all the codes, or land use regulations.
Nowadays, it could be an.y business in any area. I know it
has happened to me. I mention the borrow pit because at
the last commissioner's meeting, they passed a extending
consent agreement to a borrow pit that was found years ago
in violation to the land development code by the code board
and ordered to stop all activity. The pit needed a large scale
amendment to be in the area that was not in the right land
use area to be able to get one. Large scale amendments have
to be state's approval, so the county gave him a consent agree-
ment until 2003 instead.
Consent agreements are not to be used for land use
changes and will not hold water in court. Nobody at the
meeting could answer how it has been running since 2003
until now after the last agreement ran out. But the commis-
sioners again gave him another consent agreement for an-
other three years even though he wanted it for nine years.
Now that's greedy!
The commissioners also knew before signing this that the
owners intent after getting an extension of the consent agree-
ment he was going to sell the pit. This shows that the county
and the owner has no intent ever of getting a change in use
large scale amendment required by law.
Whomever lives around this pit, you have a great lawsuit
against all involved. The county passed another ordinance
that is'called "Special Exceptions." This one they claim is
also for borrow pit, but believe me it is not. The people in
this county soon enough will find out more on these two
matters, but my point here is how they passed them. They
make sure no one gets copies until they are approved. They
mis-advertised, they change the meanings at the last minute,
no copies provided the public, no maps, and will not allow
much time to speak on the mater. What that sound like to
you?
This special exception, when advertised, no one knows
what that is. But if it was for borrow pits, it was to be adver-
tised as borrow pit ordinance, that is the law. Now if it was
for special exception, it is to be advertised special exception.
Which it was. These two words takes over our comprehen-
sive plan and anything goes in this county. It is a get-rich-
quick scam when it takes off. Now we are going to attempt
to take these items to an state hearing to stop them. But
good luck.
Anyway, what I am wanting to show you is if this guy can
go to code enforcement and be found guilty of something as
big as a land use violation and get rewarded for it, make
sure if you get a violation to get the same treatment. You
now have the right to it, don't forget to ask for your reward.
But if someone in this county government says you must
follow laws, ask them don't you have to follow the same laws?
Oh, also nowadays, our local government thinks, without
cause, they can come into your house or your property and
take pictures both inside and out. If this happens to you,
your fourth and 14"' amendment says they cannot do this, so
have them arrested, it is your right.

USA FROM

Denmark, Finland, France,
Germany, Greece, Italy, Lux-
embourg, and Ireland, no
longer grant immediate and
unquestioned citizenship for
a child born on their
country's soil.
Ireland was the last to
abolish birthright citizen-
ship. Increasing birthrates
and increasing cost of immi-
gration enforcement for non-
citizens spurred a national
movement to abolish birth-
right citizenship in the case
of undocumented parents. In
June 2004, the Citizenship
Referendum passed over-
whelmingly, with a 79.17 per-
cent vote.
In America, the interpre-
tation of the 14th Amend-
ment may be proving one of
the stickiest issues in the on-
going political war over ille-
gal aliens and their
children's citizenship status.

According to a 2005 article
published in the Journal of
American Physicians and
Surgeons, "Between 300,000
and 350,000 anchor babies
annually become citizens be-
cause of the 14th Amend-
ment to the U.S. Constitu-
tion. Anchor babies are.citi-
zens and instantly qualify for
public welfare aid." Accord-
ing to these estimates, over
one million new U.S. citizens
are born every four years to
illegal alien parents. "Anchor
baby," is a term coined by the
media to describe a child
born to an illegal alien on
U.S. soil and used to gain fast
track immigration status by
the child's parent, under the
broad interpretation of 14th
Amendment.
The Supreme Court con-
firmed this brad interpreta-
tion of citizenship in the so-
called "Slaughterhouse"
cases of 1873 and 1874. The
phrase, "subject to its juris-
diction," has been argued,
unsuccessfully, to mean that
illegal aliens and their new-
borns should be under the ju-
risdiction of their own gov-
ernment and not the country
where the children are born
and where the parents do not
hold citizenship.
During an August 2007 in-
terview, Walton County Pub-
lic Health Department Act-
ing Director Gail Allen dis-
cussed local "anchor babies."
Allen said, "We provide ser-
vice to whoever needs it." At
this moment, the depart-


FRONT


EMERI


"We receive no funding to offset these
losses. Citizen or non-citizen, if they are un-
insured, then -the hospital and the insured
citizen pay the increased cost of medical
care. HealthMark CFO Jim Brewer


ment, according to Allen, is
providing service to 40 moth-
ers. Allen noted, "Although,
we cannot say that they are
undocumented, since we are
not experts in documenta-
tion, we will say that they are
Spanish-speaking-only cli-
ents." To obtain a birth cer-
tificate, Allen says, "one must
have standard proof of being
a parent of said child, but for
other services, such as pre-
natal care, a note from a
landlord or utility bill will
suffice." The Spanish-speak-
ing-only mothers,are cared
for up to their 34th week of
pregnancy, at which time
they are transferred to a phy-
sician in Marianna, who
speaks Spanish, for the last
month of pregnancy and de-
livery.
When asked about esca-
lating cost due to illegal alien
pregnancies in the area,
Allen responded, I don't
have the exact number, but I
know we have seen an in-
crease in overall cost. We also
have Spanish-speaking or
bilingual staff, yet some-
times have to pay for tele-
phone interpretation. We
work very hard to maintain
a good level of patient care,
no matter whom that patient
may be."
In 1994, $215 million was
spent on 74,987 anchor ba-
bies born in California hos-
pital maternity units, which
constituted 36 percent of all
births in that state. In 2005,
they were believed to account
for substantially more than
half.
The Houston Chronicle, in
June 2006, placed an average
cost of delivery at $2,842.
Multiplying that against the
40 possible undocumented
mothers being cared for by
the Walton County Health
Department comes to an es-
timated $113,680 for delivery
costs to Walton Cotinty tax-
payers per year.
Once a child obtains citi-
zenship through birth, they

As of 2005, 84 hospitals in
California have closed their
doors due to financial hard-
ship from illegal aliens and
the uninsured.
HealthJVMark Regional
Medical Center Chief Finan-
cial Office James Brewer
says his facility is not near-
ing the crisis level of some
other reported hospitals clos-
ing around the nation. "We
run a triage system in our
emergency department. Ev-
ery patient is assessed and,
if they are not insured or in
need of emergency care, we
ask them to pay up front for
charges or refer them to a
private practice physician
that can attend to them.
Emergency patients are

ance or proper documenta-
tion," he said.

the hospital to curtail the
emergency room from being
used as a primary-care facil-
ity by illegal aliens who, es-
timates Brewer, number
around 100 undocumented or
un-funded patients per
month. Even with cost-stop
measures in place, Brewer
estimates the hospital's loss
over uninsured patients
around $3 million a year,
with undocumented patients
accounting for $500,000 (or
16 percent) of the total loss.
When asked if the hospi-
tal has any way to recover
these funds from government
sources, Brewer responds,
"No, we do not. We receive no
funding to offset these losses.
Citizen or non-citizen, if they
are uninsured, then the hos-
pital and the insured citizen
pay the increased cost of
medical care."
Private physician Dr.
James Howell, founder of
Doctors Medical Center of
Walton County, has been
dealing with this issue dur-
ing his time spent in the
emergency room as an at-
tending physician as well as
in his private practice. "We
used to just see undocu-

are starting to see whole
families and undocumented
pregnant females here as
well."
Language barriers are of-

situations. Howell explained,
"a lot of times, we get some-

glish and if bi-lingual staff
members aren't on duty, we
have to find an interpreter

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.

for me, but people are start-
ing to charge for this service,
whereas it used to be free.
Just giving a patient follow-
up instructions can be diffi-
cult and puts more stress on
a caregiver to not be, able to
care for a patient properly."
Howell says losses for lo-
cal physicians may be larger
than the public thinks. "Our
office, by itself, probably has
over a half a million in ac-
counts that are unrecover-
able and have probably
wiped that much off in the
last 16 months, as well. We
get mahy patients with false
identification and will show
up with three different driv-
ers license with a different
picture on all three."
"This is not just to happen-
ing to us. When I worked in
Miami and Orlando, we re-
ceived someone every day
that had flown in from out of
the country and complained
of pain at the airport and
then received free medical


care and flew back home," he
said. "The public also needs
to understand that when doc-
tors treat uninsured patients
that they are statistically
more apt to sue physicians
than the insured population,
which in turn makes
physician's malpractice in-
surance go up and the cost
gets transferred to the phy-
sician and the insured pa-
tients."
The future of health care
is in need, said Howell. "We
are going to have some form
of help from the government
to offset these costs since
they have to be attended to,
according to federal law es-
pecially rural hospitals like
ours. Funding for interpret-
ers is needed. Hospitals are
already at a loss now and this
issue just adds to our bur-
dens."

Scam


alert
Local resident Hilton
Lawson recently avoided
what appears to be a form of
telephone scam. Several
weeks ago, he reports, he re-
ceived a telephone call early
on a Sunday morning. The
call was a collect call, and
when the operator asked if
Lawson would accept the
charges, Lawson refused and
hung up. Shortly afterward
Lawson received another col-
lect call, which he again re-
fused to accept.
Later he learned that the
call cost $4.89, with a charge
.of 89 cents per minute.
Lawson called the police, and
an investigation showed that
the call had originated in
Marion County, in central
Florida. The identity of the
caller has not been deter-
mined, and Lawson has not
received any further such
calls.

DeFUNIAK SPRINGS

POLICE REPORT


WALTON COUNTY

SHERIFF'S REPORT










THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 6, 2007


"This makes me uncomfortable. The tax-
payer will pay the same amount of taxes -
and why is it, when it comes down to the
workers for the city, that they have to bear
the burden of not being rewarded? When it
comes to the worker's time to be rewarded -
and then all of a sudden we can't afford to
pay them?" Councilman James Huffman


COUNCIL


budget allows."
Longevity and perfor-
mance were not factored into
the recommended salary
study of 2006. The Council
agreed during an August
2006 budget workshop to re-
ward longevity in the 2007
budget. According to figures
provided by Kirby, the lon-
gevity award would cost the
city varying amounts. A flat
award with service not rec-
ognized amounts to $4,100.
per year and that drops to
$1,650 for those with 5 years
or more service. To pay all
employees for all years' ser-
vice would cost $24,800, a
one-time lump sum and then
the flat rate of $4,100 per
year. To pay employees with
five years or more would cost
a lump sum of $19,900 and
'then the same flat rate of
$4,100 per year to maintain.
The proposed bonus
amount of $50 and how to
award, caused much discus-
sion among the Council.
Council member Don
Harrison said, "I thought we
had decided that this was an
incentive from this day for-
ward and would encourage
people to stay on, not move
backward." Mayor Pro Tem-
pore James Huffman re-
sponded, "to me that's not re-
warding longevity. You're
only going to get $50 a year
if you've been here for 20
years and nothing for your
years served." C o u n c i 1
member Henry Ennis
added,"I agreed with that the
first time we discussed this
issue." :
Different amounts for dif-
ferent positions, according to
10-and-15-year (or above) in-
crements, was suggested by
Harrison. Huffman re-
sponded, "If you are going to
recognize longevity, it has to
be calculated into past ser-
vice, or you're not giving any-
thing to loyal employees for
past service."


FROM FRONT


Citizen J.B. Hillard said,
"I'm a conservative taxpayer
and yet I know that these
sums are not going to keep
an employee in your service.
According to your figures,
that's a small amount if
someone works 30 years and
get a onetime payment of
$1,500 for 30 years service."
Harrison remained firm
and responded to Hillard, "I
agree with you but I do not
want to go backwards on this
issue and pay for past ser-
vice. Although it's a small
amount, it still might be in-
centive to keep an employee."
Kirby said due to a new
constitutional amendment,
"the city has no idea yet of
what funding or budget re-
straints would be like in the
next year and a conservative
amount that could be raised
later would be better than no
longevity award at all."

"But we've got to
get a handle on our
reserves and budget.
Even though our re-
serves are increas-
ing, we are living
above our income ev-
ery time we reach
into reserves." Coun-
cilman James Coffield

City Marshal Adkinson
stated to the Council that
past studies have shown "it
costs less to retain a good em-
ployee than to train a new
employee. The city police
department's last officer to
retire was Jessie Evens in
1968." He continued, "The
point is the folks who stay
bring an instructional knowl-
edge that is missed with a
new employee."
The Council returned to
the figures for longevity is-


sues. Huffman echoed
Adkinson's statement, say-
ing, "We've got to figure out
a way to retain good employ-
ees and longevity for years
served, just like in the mili-
tary, should factor into that."
Harrison countered, "Re-
member when we set the
milege rate at 4.5 and agreed
to keep it there? We optioned
to do that with the knowl-
edge that' we were going to
use that money in a conser-
vative manner and with
these salary issues, I don't
think we're doing that. I
think everyone who works
for the city deserves to be
paid well, but ,it's not in our
budget or the best interest of
the taxpayer to move back-
wards. We are really not tow-
ing the line, according to the
taxpayer and they are the
ones paying for this."
According to Harrison,
$1.5 million was used from
reserves last year. Huffman
said, "This make me uncom-
fortable. The taxpayer will
pay the same amount of
taxes and why is it, when it
comes down to the workers
for the city, that they have to
bear the burden of not being
rewarded? When it comes to
the worker's time to be re-
warded and then all of a
sudden we can't afford to pay
them?"
Mayor Harold Carpenter
spoke up, "I think we are at
a dead standstill on longev-
ity and cannot resolve it to-
night and need to move on to
decide the three salary in-
creases left to resolve."
The Council, with a four-
to-one vote, approved the city
marshal's salary for $65,000
with Harrison dissenting
and requesting a 10 percent
increase in salary instead.
Council member Wayne
Graham made motion that
all three administration em-
ployees' salaries should be
raised to $65,500. The Coun-
cil then approved 3-2, with
Harrison and Graham dis-
senting on a 15-percent raise
for City Financial Director
Sara Bowers, to bring her
salary $62,751.
The last'salary to be de-
cided was DeFuniak Springs
Fire Chief Briantoley, who
was given a 15-percent in-
crease in salary up to to
$60,829 with a three-to-two
vote, with Harrison and Gra-
ham dissenting a final time.
Coley spoke to the Council
and stated, "I am grateful for
the raise, but I would rather
insure that my employees re-
ceive the money they de-
serve."


Mayor Carpenter con-
clud d the meeting, saying,
"The longevity issue is dead
until the next year." Coffield
spoke up at the end of the
meeting by saying, "If we are
going to deal with longevity
in the future, we will have to
start at least five years, if not
all the way back. But we've
got to get a handle on our re-


i's .: Jma ..-,O L


serves and budget. Even
though our reserves are in-
creasing, we are living above
our income every time we
reach into reserves."
According to figures pro-
vided by the city, the com-
bined raises of the three city
department heads approved
equals $27,766. That is
$2,968 more than it would


cost the city to pay longevity
awards to all city employees;
starting with their first year
of service. Records also show
the mayor and City Council's
approved raise this year
amounts to a total of $19,300
- $600 shy of the amount
needed to award longevity
for five years of service to all
city employees.

Skin exams can


dramatically increase


survival rates


Recent research shows
that when detected early, the
survival rate for patients
with melanoma is nearly 99
percent. However, the re-
search also shows that sur-
vival rates may be as low as
15 percent if the disease is
not detected in its early
stages. Regular skin checks
are a simple and easy way to
catch skin cancer before it is
too late.
"After the summer, when
people might have experi-
enced sun damage, is a good
time to visit a dermatologist
to get a skin exam," says
Perry Robins, MD, President
of the Skin Cancer Founda-
tion. "Most people don't real-
ize that an annual visit to a
dermatologist should be a
part of their regular health


routine --just like getting a
yearly physical."
In addition to an annual
professional total-body skin
examination, the Skin Can-
cer Foundation recommends
monthly skin self-exams.
Studies have shown that the
majority of melanomas are
spotted by patients. In fact,
they may detect melanoma
more than twice as often as
physicians do. Research has
shown that skin self-exams
can lead to 42 percent fewer
deaths. Combined with a
yearly skin exam by a doctor,
a self-exam is the best way
to detect the early warning
signs of skin cancer. The key
is to look for any new growths
or skin changes. Here's how:
Gather a bright light; a
full-length mirror; a hand


mirror; two chairs or stools
and a blow-dryer.
1. Examine head and face,
using one or both mirrors.

By BRUCE COLLIER
Jerry D. Partridge. leads
a double-edged life. His
day job is working in.i the
Walton County Prop erty
Appraiser's office. In his
free time, he practices
an age-old craft, making
fixed-blade knives for col-
lecting and everyday use.
Partridge uses a combina-
tion of materials, some
modern, some prehistoric.
It started some 17 years
ago, when Partridge began
as a collector. He w as par-
ticularly taken with the
artistry of master knife-
maker Gil Hibben.
Based in La Grange,
KY., Hibben designed the
iconic "Rambo" knife for
the Sylvester Stallone
"First Blood" action films.
He is also the creator of
the fantastical array of
bladed weaponry used
by the Klingons in "Star
Trek," and an variety
of other knives. About a
year-and-a-half ago, Par-
tridge took a knifemaking
class from Hibbe:n. Since
then, he has continued to
make knives andl knife-
cases from scratch.
Though the trade is
ancient, Partridge starts
with a bit of modern
technology. A computer
graphic designer, Par-
tridge starts off with a
design. From the drawing
board, the work becomes
hands-on. Partridge cuts a
shape from bar stock steel.
Grinding and shaping fol-
low, then the blade is sent
to a specialist for heat-
treating. Polishes can be
"satin" favored by hunt-
ers, or mirror-polished.
According to Partridge's.


design, a handle is crafted
from various materials.
A popular combination
is buffalo horn, African
bloodwood (similar to ce-
dar, says Partridge), and
a substance that's been
waiting around a long
time to be used fossilized
mammoth tooth. Partridge
says the prehistoric teeth
are harvested from Si-
beria, where miners find
them in digs and sell them
to exporters. Also used
are African giraffe bones,
taken from natural kills,
not by hunters, as well as
cherry wood.
Once the knife is com-
pleted, a case is made
from cowhide, stitched
and bonded with ostrich
hide. Partridge is not
taking custom or bespoke
orders these days, but he
does sell his own designs
to collectors and gift-
buyers.
Partridge recently
reached a personal bench-
mark when he became a


probationary member of
the Knifemakers Guild.
This probation is for a
two-year period, after
which he will be eligible to
become a voting member
of the guild. Knifemakers:
show and sell their wares:
in blade shows, such as
the one in Atlanta, and
other venues.
Partridge maintains a
collection of knives and
keeps an archive of photos
of knives made and sold.
Each knife is sold with
a case and a certificate
of origin. The certificate
lists the specifications and
materials used, as well
as care instructions. At
the bottom of the certifi-
cate is Partridge's pledge,:
"Knives made the old-
fashioned way one at a
time, by hand."

Partridge Knives can
be contacted by tele-
phone at (850) 585-0458,
or e-mailed at par-
tridgeknives@yahoo.com

Doors open.

again at ODCC
The Open Door Commu-
nity Club (ODCC) will open
its doors once again at 11
a.m., Thursday, September
13, 2007, at the Best Western
Crossroads Inn on 331.
Newly-elected president
Anne Ryan invites all women
to come and enjoy the friend-
ship and fellowship at each
meeting.
Welcoming new women
to the community is the foun-
dation upon which the Open
Door Club is built. The club
began in March of 1980 when
a small group of women
wanted to make a difference
in their community. At the
first gathering, held in the
home of Elizabeth Jeffcoat,
they discussed the need to
welcome women who were
new to the area. The follow-
ing month, the ODCC started
its long-standing tradition of
meeting for lunch and fellow-
ship at the former Ramada
Inn, now the Best Western
Crossroads.
The tradition goes on to-
day as women of the commu-
nity gather for the purpose of
friendship, cultural activi-
ties, and community service.
Members are encouraged to
bring a friend, old or new, to
the meetings.
To learn more about the
ODCC, visit their website at
http://www.opendoordfs.com.
Special thanks to Robert
Nelson and his staff at I-Fix-
Computers, Inc., for hosting
the website for the club.
"From quiet homes .and
first beginning,
Out to the undiscovered
ends,
There's nothing worth
the wear of winning,
But laughter and the
love of friends.

The secret of a victorious life

By DR. ROBERT M. JAYE


With a little effort most
u.1 us could remember
Galatians '2 i. where Paul
gives the reason i' tihe I life
he ni, i. id ".., The life
which I now live in the
flesh 1 live by fa.lh of the
Son of God, who loved me
and gave IHltri, llI for me."
What a wonderful life he
lived in the flesh! We our-
selves may endure toil, suf-
fering and grief, and still
live a victorious life. Note
this.
We should have faith in
Christ who loves us. Paul
worked for the One who


loved him and gave Himself
for him. Faith in Christ will
readjust our disturbed rela-
tions with God, and thus se-
cure His favor. That indicates
the weakness of all schemes
of human life. Human
schemes leave Christ out and
persons are left to battle in
their own strength. Let us
depend on the love of God.
Again, there is no victory
in human philosophy. The se-
cret of a victorious life is in
theology, not human philoso-,
phy. The earthly life needs
heavenly help. Only a life
lived by the faith of the Son


of God will fit us for the
world to come.

Further, Christ must be
the model of our lives. Is He
your Savior? Let Him then
be the model for living for
Him. When we remember
the perfect life of Jesus, our
Savior, we are encouraged to
become more like Him. We
want to avoid fuse and
bother which do not amount
to very much any way.
Then, it is the Lord who
gives us the needed divine
help. To say we want to live
a more consecrated life is not


enough. We need to have di-
vine help which comes from
faith in the Lord Christ. Re-
member that Paul said, "I
can do all things through
Christ who strengtheneth
me."

Here is the secret of life
and the title to glory. It is
very simple but all-suffi-
cient. Let us live our life in
the flesh by faith in Christ.
Let us press steadily on-
ward day by day, "looking
unto Jesus," until at last,
our work is ended and we
rest in His arms.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 6, 2007


Movie Review


The Road to Austen: "Becoming Jane"


By BRUCE COLLIER
"Becoming Jane" is the
story of how a modest girl
from Hampshire, England
got started on the road to lit-
erary immortality as one of
the world's greatest novel-
ists. Julian Jarrold directed
a mixed cast of veterans
(Maggie Smith, Ian
Richardson) and relative
newcomers (Anne Hathaway,
James McAvoy) in a "Master-
piece Theatre"-style period
piece. It's heavy on looks,
light on factuality, and has
some trouble coming to a
stop.
According to the movie,
Austen had the beginning of


a romance with a young law-
yer named Tom Lefroy.
Lefroy an actual person -
reportedly engaged in a flir-
tation with Austen in 1796.
This is borne out to some ex-
tent by two references in let-
ters written by Austen to
her sister Cassandra. De-
tails are virtually nonexist-
ent, leaving screenwriters
to do a lot of embroidery.
On the whole, it's good
embroidery. The writers
draw from history to set up
the social framework of late-
18th and early 19th-century
England. This was the time
of the French Revolution


and the prelude to the Napo-
leonic Wars. While aristocrats
were losing their heads in
France, high birth and money
still ruled in England, and
any woman's best bet was an
advantageous marriage. They
also draw from Austen's nov-
els, generally regarded as a
reliable, though not necessar-
ily neutral, portrait of her so-
ciety. How can they miss?
What flaws "Becoming
Jane," albeit slightly, is that
it has so many of the charac-
teristics of its protagonist's
novels that it resembles a sort
of "lost" Austen novel itself.
Compromising correspon-
dence, coincidences, family


secrets, rich and implacable
aunts and uncles, all are
there. There's even a ball,
with contradanses and whis-
pered confessions of affection
in shadowy corners. In short,
as they say in Hollywood, it
pushes all the Austen but-
tons. When you consider that
all of Jane Austen's novels
have been made into films -
some several times over it
seems like a safe bet.
Of course, one could also
say that Austen did it first,
and best, and why peddle er-
satz Austen? Same reason
they made "Shakespeare in
Love." The reasoning seems


to be, "You love the books!
Now, love the woman behind
the books! Jane Austen, un-
plugged!"
"Becoming Jane" is actu-
ally a very good movie, de-
spite its artificial twists and
turns. The costumes are
beautiful, and the feeling of
the lush, damp, fertile En-
glish countryside is lovingly
rendered. I've never seen
wall-mold look so romantic.
As with most casts of Brit-
ish actors playing British
characters, the acting is flaw-
less, and if it isn't, I'm not
sure anyone could tell.
,As for the story, if you


know anything about the life
of Austen, you know how the
"romance" ends. This really is
one of those works where the
trip is more interesting than
the destination. Whether
Jane Austen actually lived
the life of Elizabeth Bennett,
or knew Emma Woodhouse, or
loved Mr. Darcy, "Becoming
Jane" is a glossy, high-class
"what-if" of a movie. Take
your kids, then swing by the
bookstore or library on the
way -home for the complete
works. They're classics, ,so
they won't cost much.
By the way, "Saw IV" is com-
ing. You stand warned.

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.

Walton wins


By PATRICK CASEY
Issac Jackson ran for 207
yards and two touchdowns
while wideout Keke Aguilar
hauled in two touchdown
passes as Walton defeated
Freeport 28-7 at Everett
Yates Memorial Stadium in
the season opener for both
teams.
After a scoreless first
quarter, Walton struck
quickly as Jackson broke free
on a 42-yard touchdown run
to cap a 7-play, 64-yard drive
to give Walton a 7-0 lead.
Jackson struck again after
a Freeport punt set Walton
up at midfield. On the second
play of the drive he broke
loose on a 45-yard jaunt to
extend the lead to 14-0 with
nine minutes left in the first
half.
Meanwhile, the Walton
defense was stifling the Free-
port running game and ha-
rassing the quarterback duo
of Logan Caudill and Cole
Weeks to the tune of six quar-
terback sacks during the con-
test.
Freeport did recover a pair
of fumbles in Walton terri-
tory in the first half, but the
Bulldogs could not get close
enough to give Spencer Mar-
tin a chance to put points on


the board before halftime.
Walton's second posses-
sion of the third quarter saw
the biggest play of the night
as junior Braves quarterback
Tarrell Bramlet hit Keke
Aguilar on a crossing route
for a 73-yard touchdown to
increase the lead to 21-0.
Freeport managed to put
together a 14-play, 70-yard
drive on the squad's next pos-.
session as Colby Thomas
struck paydirt with a 1-yard
plunge to cut the deficit to 21-
7.
Walton responded with a
7-play, 56-yard drive as
Aguilar caught a 5-yard pass
from Bramlet for a 28-7 lead
midway through the final
quarter.
The Bulldogs played solid
defense but had trouble with
Issac Jackson as he helped
the Braves roll up 222 yards
on the ground. The Bulldogs
defense was hampered in the
third quarter when Logan
Caudill suffered a serious in-
jury on punt coverage and
was unable to return.
Walton held Freeport to 91
yards rushing on 49 attempts
as the Braves defensive front
seven swarmed to the ball.
Justin Crishon recorded 2.5

Senior Kenzie Clemmons
rushed for 159 yards and a
pair of touchdowns as South
Walton won their first game

Franklin County on Friday
night.
Bryant Adams added 67
yards and a touchdown and
Billy Burnett had 59 yards
and a score as the Seahawks
won the contest without
throwing a pass during the
game.
Franklin 'County, which
was playing its first varsity
game, is a combination of
Apalachicola and Carrabelle

Northview stopped a two-
point conversion, then recov-
ered the ensuing onside kick
in the final minute to defeat
Pensacola Catholic 14-13 in
the season opener for both
squads. The game featured
an hour-long rain delay and
a soaked field in Northview
that saw the two teams play
to a scoreless first half.
Northview built a 14-0 lead
in the second half only to see
the Crusaders score a pair of
touchdowns in the final five
minutes. Crusaders coach
Greg Seibert elected to go for
two on the road, but quarter-


school football round-up


back David Kooi overthrew
his receiver on the conver-
sion attempt.

* Marianna built a 14-0 lead
over Blountstown and held
on for a 14-6 win on the road,
breaking the Tigers 33-game
winning streak in the regu-
lar season. Marianna con-
trolled the game with their
running attack and picked off
Blountstown quarterback
Cory Cox twice during the
contest.
Panama City Bozeman
traveled to Baker and came
back with a 37-15 win over
the Gators. Bozeman won its


first game against a public
school in three seasons and
third victory overall in the
program's history as Mason
Bennett rushed for 110 yards
and three touchdowns for the
Bucks. Baker struggled on
offense with three turnovers
and numerous penalties in
losing their home opener.
Chipley rallied on the road
in Vernon for a 26-20 victory
over the Yellowjackets to cap-
ture the battle between the
two Washington County
teams.
Liberty County built a 13-
0 lead at home against
Graceville, then held on for


a 19-6 victory. Bulldogs quar-
terback Ridge Read threw
two touchdown passes and
ran in for another score to
help Liberty County pick up
the non-district win,.

Tallahassee Florida High,
who is expected to be one of
the better teams in the Big
Bend region, scored 22 points
in the third quarter to knock
off Port St. Joe on the road
36-14. Santuan McGee
rushed for 103 yards and
caught a 61-yard touchdown
pass to help the Seminoles
rally from a 14-7 deficit and
capture the victory.


Josh McDorman tossed
three touchdown passes as
Niceville dominated West
Gadsden 48-7 in the Eagle
season opener. West
Gadsden, which has begun
the last several seasons fac-
ing powerhouse. teams in
their openers, once again got
clubbed for the effort. The
Panthers lone score came on
a 65-yard fumble return by
Pierre Edwards at the begin-
ning of the second half.
Tony Ellis ran for 209
yards and had a 10-yard
touchdown run with ten min-
utes left in the game to help
Flomaton knock off Jay 14-


7. Jay put together a 99-yard
touchdown drive to hold a 7-
6 lead at the half, but could
not hold off the visiting Hur-
ricanes in the final period of
play.

Sneads built a 31-6 lead
over Cottondale then hung
on for a 37-30 victory in the
Pirates home opener. Mark
Lawson rushed for 204 yards
on the night and Chris Wil-
son picked off three passes
for the Pirates as they raced
to a 25-point lead, then recov-
,ered an onside kick with less
than two minutes left in the
game to preserve the win.


Sports News & Notes


By PATRICK CASEY
The Freeport Bulldogs
captured a key district win in
volleyball with a four-set vic-
tory over the Baker Gators
on Thursday. Freeport won
the match 25-19, 19-25, 25-
15 and 25-22 to improve to
2-0 on the regular season and
broke a six-match losing
streak to the Gators that
dated back to the 2003-04
season.
Wakulla County honored
local coaching legends Dave
Price and J.D. Jones recently


with permanent spots in
Wakulla High athletics his-
tory. Price, who coached sev-
eral sports at the school dur-
ing a 27-year career, and
Jones, the school's football
coach for 29 years, had local
venues named for them re-
cently. Based on proclama-
tions, Wakulla High's tennis
facility was renamed the
Dave Price Courts and the
football facility is now called
J.D. Jones Field at Reynolds
Stadium. Jones helped build
a powerhouse football pro-


gram that won state ciiam-
pionships in 1980 and 1981
and finished second in 1978.
Walton had several competi-
tive battles with the War
Eagles during the Jeff Webb
era of Walton football in the
1980s.
Florida State named
former football standouts
Derrick Alexander, Gary
Pajcic and Jack Shinholser,
administrator and former
football player Larry
Pendleton, and long-time
chair of the Athletics Com-


mittee Charles W. Ehrhardt,
to its Athletics Hall of Fame.
Induction will be Friday
night.

The Miami Hurricanes
will play its home games at
Dolphin Stadium in 2008 af-
ter competing at Orange
Bowl Stadium from 1937-
2007. The Hurricanes inked
a 25-year lease at Dolphin
Stadium from 2008-32 after
winning five national titles
and an NCAA-longest 58-
game home winning streak


at the Orange Bowl
While FSU made a decent
comeback against Clemson,
it is clear coaching wasn't the
only problem the last few
years. FSU wideouts don't
catch the ball consistently
and the Seminoles scare no
one going deep down the
field. With the schedule the
squad faces this year, plan


for next season when FSU
will have a much more man-
ageable schedule and a year
with the new coaches under
their belt. A 7-5 season with
a bowl game may be the ab-
solute best this young squad
can do, if that.

Auburn has close call


By CHUCK HINSON
With all the attention given
to Alabama this past week-
end over their new head foot-
ball coach, Auburn opened
their season to what they
thought would be an easy
win. But for Tuberville and
the Tigers, it came down to
the last few minutes of the
game for them to realize
Kansas State was not kid-
ding. ,
Auburn won the game in
the last two minutes of the
fourth quarter, 23-13.
Kansas State came to town
looking for the upset. Until
the end of the fourth quarter,
Tuberville and the entire
Auburn-cheering stadium
thought the same.
It came down to the end of
the game when Auburn had
to regroup, reorganize and
redirect the game in their di-
rection before they finally got
some points on the board.
They trailed Kansas State, 9-
6 with 2:01 left on the play
clock.
Brandon Cox took control
of the game and finally got a
floundering, offensive-strug-
glingAuburn team motivated
when he threw a 57-yard


touchdown pass to Gabe
McKenzie. That put the Ti-
gers on top with a 16-9 lead
after seven plays.
Cox had spent most of the
game on his back trying to
escape the Kansas State de-
fensive pounding. But after
the late fourth-quarter
touchdown, the visiting Kan-
sas team began to wear
down. Auburn got
the ball one more time after
a Kansas State fumble. An-
tonio Coleman picked up the
dropped ball and ran it back
34 yards for the Tiger touch-
down.

County pursuing recreational



enhancements


By DOTTY NIST
Walton County is hoping
,that the state will fund a
regulation soccer field, three
picnic pavilions, a restroom
facility, a 900-foot-long
boardwalk through wet-
lands, and associated infra-
structure on a new 10-acre.
county property adjacent to
Helen McCall Park in Santa
Rosa Beach.,
The improvements would
cost $200,000, and Walton
County is applying for a
Florida Recreational Devel-
opment Assistance Program
(FRDAP) grant in that
amount.
According to Angie Biddle,
county grants coordinator,
the county would not be re-
quired to provide any match-
ing funds. $200,000 is the
maximum amount for the
grant.
Walton County District 5
Commissioner Cindy Mead-
ows hosted a public meeting
on Aug. 30 to seek public in-
put in advance of the grant
application. Meadows has
prioritized enhancement of
recreational opportunities in
her district, including the
sports programs that have
been a strong request for lo-
cal families with young chil-
dren.


Helen McCall Park on
Moll Drive in Santa Rosa
Beach is a busy venue for
baseball, softball, soccer and
football games.
Conceptual plans for the
new adjacent property also
include two playgrounds, a
driveway and .parking area.
Meadows said that a consult-
ant should be selected by'
mid-September to begin de-
veloping detailed design
plans for the property.
Citizens attending the
Aug. 30 public input meeting
were particularly interested
in a community pool being
made available in south Wal-
ton County. One attendee
said that many residents are
regularly making the trek to
Frank Brown Park in
Panama City Beach to swim
there.
County Administrator
Ronnie Bell commented that
pools are among the most ex-
pensive recreational facili-
ties. He explained that the
City of Freeport's pool,
slightly less than Olympic
size, cost $350,000. Panama
City Beach's larger pool com-
plex cost a whopping $4 mil-
lion, he added, and that
project took five years' prepa-
ration before the city was
able to break ground.


Biddle suggested that citizens send let-
ters to legislators supporting Walton
County's FRDAP grant application, and
that these letters also be e-mailed to her to
be included with the application.


WALTON COUNTY is applying for funding to provide a regulation soccer field, three
picnic pavilions, and other improvements at new county property acquired adjacent to Helen
McCall Park in Santa Rosa Beach:


The attendees discussed
seeking donations from orga-
nizations, foundations, and
other sources to fund a south
Walton County public pool.
Meadows said that plans
are in the works for basket-
ball and tennis courts, picnic
tables and trails, .plus a
15,000-square-foot commu-
nity center, on a seven-acre
parcel adjacent to the South
Walton Governmental and
Educational Center off
U.S.331.
Dave Lovel of the Walton
County Recreation Board ex-
pressed support for the


county seeking funding for a
soccer field through the
FRDAP grant. "We do not
have a regulation soccer
field," he said.
Biddle said she would sub-
mit the county's application
prior to the state's Sept. 15
deadline. The county will not
know whether the funding
will be provided until May
2008 when the next year's
legislative session ends.
However, Biddle said she is
confident about the applica-
tion.
Bell warned that the leg-
islature is currently in ses-


sion to deal with a state bud-:
get shortfall, and that state
grants may be cut. He high-
lighted the importance, of citi-
zens contacting their legisla-,
tors in support of this grant
funding for recreation re-!
maining in place.
Biddle suggested that citi-
zens send letters to legisla-
tors supporting Walton:
County's FRDAP grant appli-
cation, and that these letters
also be e-mailed to her to be
included with the applica-|
tion. She provided her e-mail':
address, which is:

Wise reminds beachgoers that safety should be priority one


By LEAH STRATMANN
With the passing of Labor
Day, the clock is ticking on
the number of days life-
guards will remain on the
beaches in Walton County.
Gary Wise, director of beach
safety, had a few tips to re-
mind beachgoers that safety
should be the number one
priority.
"The most important
thing to remember is if you
don't know the conditions of
the water you are about to


enter, don't go in," he said.
"Basically look at the flag
system if green is flying, it
is safer than yellow, but use
caution all the time. If double
red is flying, do not go in the
water."
Wise said no matter how
many places the flag system
is explained, obstinate tour-
ists often do not heed the
counsel of the flags or safety
personnel right on the beach.
"I've seen people lead chil-
dren around a drowned body


on the beach to get to the
water saying, 'we'll just stay
at the edge.' The standard
answer of tourists is 'I paid
$3,000 for a week and I'll do
what I want.'"
Although the lifeguards
will be gone at the end.ofSep-
tember, Wise said the
sheriff's office personnel
would still be out there, along
with Wise himself. Wise sug-
gested people learn what a
rip current looks like, ex-
plaining it is basically an

area where the waves are not
breaking evenly. He says you
. can see the water traveling
out and it is going in the op-
posite direction of the water
and the water isvery turbu-
lent. "When waves are break-
ing evenly coming in, it
should be safe to swim, un-
less the waves are eight feet
high," he said,
Wise cautioned that the
first course of action if you
notice someone is in trouble
is to call a professional. "It is
very hard not to try to go help
someone in trouble, but three
of the last four bodies I took
out of the water were people
trying to help somebody else.
"If you can't help yourself
from going in to help, grab
one or two boogie boards and
take the three seconds it
takes to tether them to your
wrist before going out there.
The cheaper ones you buy are
not flotation devices, because
they are not big enough, but
they are way better than
nothing. Grabbing a surf-
board is better, but the boogie
boards may buy you a few
more minutes and those few
minutes can count," he said.
"Also try to get as much at-
tention as possible to the
situation. Yell at surfers,
they are already out there
and they know how to
paddle. It is very difficult to
attempt a rescue. The mo-
ment you enter the water,
you potentially become the


second victim."
Wise said drawing atten-
tion to the crisis is critical.
"Once you have notified 911,
you know help is on the way,
but it may take some time for
help to get there. You should
send someone up to the road
to help direct emergency per-
sonnel and when calling for
help use reference points
such as names of condos and
make sure you use the right
condo name. Just last week
everyone responded to the
wrong place because the per-
son calling gave the name of
the condo they had stayed in
the previous year."
This summer has been
long on prevention and mer-
cifully short on fatalities.
Wise estimates more than r:
10,000 preventative actions
were taken this past season.,
when people were in the wa-
ter when they shouldn't have
been, such as when lightning
was coming too close or the
red flags were flying.
Wise also had words for
those who might find them-
selves in a rip current, which
is typically the cause of most
drowning in the area.
"If you are caught in a rip'
current, signal for help. Don't'
try to fight against the cur-
rent. Try to angle to the near-,
est sandbar or follow the:
course of least resistance to"
the nearest sandbar. The pri-,

Committee for a Sustainable


Emerald Coast looks forward


By JEFFREY POWELL
The Committee for a Sus-
tainable Emerald Coast
(CSEC) held its 11th meeting
recently at the Emerald
Coast Conference Center on
Santa Rosa Island.,
In August of 2006, Gover-
nor Jeb Bush appointed Pan-
handle leaders from educa-
tion, government, conserva-
tion and business to serve as
members of the CSEC. The
governor directed this com-
mittee to bring together pub-
lic and private interests, con-
cerns and communities in the
four county region consisting
of Escambia, Santa Rosa,
Okaloosa and Walton coun-
ties. The committee is consid-
ering issues of long-range
planning that could help the
region prepare for the next
generation.
The primary issues con-
cerning the group are sus-
tainable growth/develop-
ment, economic diversity/
prosperity, environmental
stewardship, education,
health care and culture.
The Aug. 30, meeting fo-
cused primarily on the fourth
category of education, health
care and culture.
University of West Florida
President John Cavanuagh
stressed the need for local
educational institutions to
continue to cooperate with
each other and to adjust cur-
riculum to the needs of the
communities. "Our nursing
programs will become even
more important in the future
due to the aging population,"
Cavanaugh said.
Baptist Health Center
representative Jerry
Maygarben echoed
Cavanaugh's concern for the
future citizens of the area.
"We need to concern our-
selves with the quality of life,
not just long life, for the
people of Northwest Florida,"
Maygarben said.

ered the cultural portion of
the discussion. "We need to

Richburg outlined a regional
alliance plan that would
among other things advocate

the area. This plan would
also call for the enhaiiceientii.
of arts and education for stu-
dents from kindergarten


through there senior year.
Richburg would also like to
see cultural activities that
would benefit the tourism in-
dustry.
"We want the public to tin-
derstand hbw important it is'
for individuals to take re-
sponsibility for planning the


kind of environment and
economy they envision." said
CSEC Chairman Michelle
Anchors. "Vision without ac-

Football v
season
h a s
started
and fans
across the
nation are
glued to
the televi-
sion every
Saturday
and Sunday. It costs
to go to the game and
even more to adver-
tise during it!

For many families, the,be-
ginning of September means
no more family trips and out-
ings and no more family
time, period. It is the end of
the family unit as you know
it!
To complicate things it is
not an 'hour-long program
that distracts dad in his easy
chair. It's two full days of
college and professional foot-
ball that seems to bring the
world to a halt. Did you ever
think of what gets those
games on the air and what
keeps the American buying
public able to watch them
without having to get pay-
per-view?
Hundreds of millions of
dollars are spent annually on
Sporting events. Businesses
ican participate as being a
major sponsor, hosting the
event or have their name
splashed on the side of a rac-
Sing car, a field fence or on the
athlete's shirt sleeve.
Endorsements have be-
come a major business, and
the market is getting more
and more competitive. Just
ask a NASCAR driver who
gets more than a million dol-
lars plus to put a logo on his
car, or a tennis or'golf pro
who has a little Nike swoosh


on his or her sleeve.
With NASCAR, the adver-
tising frenzy hit about a de-
cade ago, and the madness
has grown even bigger over
the last five-to-seven years.
With the expansion and no-
toriety the sport has been
given, major sponsors such
as Lowe's, Home Depot,
Budweiser, Coke, Tide,
Kodak, DuPont, DeWalt and
many others, have
scrambled to get their names
on the drivers' bumpers, just
to get some advertising.
The companies closely
study the demographics that
watch and attend the races,
then pinpoint their ad cam-
paigns to appeal to those
viewers and attendees.
Football brings in another
set of advertisers that have
become prevalent everytime
you see the perfect catch or
see the missed throw. From
"sponsored by" tags at the
beginning of the ballgame, to
" brought to you in part by"
at the conclusion, ad place-
ment finds its way into our
television sets and eventu-
ally into our grocery cart or
carport.
In the South, it's still the
norm to see Budweiser and
Miller Light or Ford and Lib-
erty National Insurance
Company, sponsoring the
event and having the com-
mercials play everytime the
game goes to break. Even
championship games like the


Fiesta Bowl
are sponsored
by snack com-
^1 panies that
I Remind the
SI )S viewer to pick
up some of
their products
before the
- l' L,. game.
Research
has found
that any type
of ads that
run during a football game
and are aimed at women,
should run during halftime,'
For men, the commerical
breaks right before an impor-
tant play or a possible score
are good times to run those
ads, since most men will not
take their eyes off the set at
such points, even during a
commercial.
Endorsements are another
important factor for the ath-
lete and coach as well. Half
of sports celebrities' annual
incomes can come from for
just wearing a logo, driving
a certain vehicle or sipping a
certain beverage. For many
athletes such as O.J.
Simpson and Kobe Bryant,
court cases and scandals not
only ruined their careers,
but ended their long-time
contracts with their financial
backers.
As football season sets in
for the next couple of months
and family members tend to
spend more time with their
faces in the screen, rather
than in the books, be sure to
keep an eye on the commer-
cials that are interjected into
the program.
Make a conscious effort to
see what ads are placed
where during the program,
and how long and how many
times they air. But to make
the thought hit home, see
how many of those adver-
tised products are in your
fridge or cabinets the follow-
ing week.
