DFS Council adopts more impact fees


By ALICIA LEONARD
The Defuniak Springs
City council met on Septem-
ber 10, 2007 to consider a
presentation on the Trans-
port Impact Fee study. Coun-
cil members Don Harrison
and James Huffman both
voiced their concerns over
amounts that would be
charged to new homeowners
for transport impact fees.
Mayor Harold Carpenter
agreed that the rates would
be a concern and the Council
agreed to shelve the issues


until the members could
have more time to think
about it. The Council then
approved five to zero the
adoption of Ordinance 756
regarding public safety im-
pact fees for law enforce-
ment.
The Council also reviewed
a motion to change land use
for a 1.9 acre corner located
at Quail Run and North 331.
Residents came out to speak
with the council before the
vote asking for a fifty-foot
buffer zone from the business


area, as well as a restriction
of certain types of business
if the ordinance was ap-
proved.
Kathy Herra spoke to the
council on behalf of her
neighbors about their con-
cerns, "We live in a very quiet
and safe neighborhood. I and
my neighbors are concerned
about too much traffic and
noise a business like a con-
venience store or fast-food
restaurant may bring." Ordi-
nance 755 was approved by
a five to zero vote for the re-


zoning of the corner from
residential to C-1 zone and
will include a 20-foot buffer
zone between residential and
business as well as a six-foot
fence that will separate prop-
:erty line when a new busi-
ness is built.
City Planner Greg Scoville
also informed the Council of
the proposed site plan right
of way with the Lowe's
project and updated the
council on large scale amend-
ments for future plans for the
Yahootie project that covers


a large expanse of property
on south U.S. 331 just past
Interstate 10. No action was
required on either update.;.
Citizen J. B. Hillard then
discussed Communities For
A Lifetime project with the
Council. Former Governor
Jeb Bush started the pro-
gram and, to date, 160 com-
munities in Florida are par-
ticipants. Hillard said of the

MARIA MILTON, librarian of the Gladys N. Milton branch of the Walton County Library
System and daughter of the celebrated midwife for whom the library is named.


Milton fights




to save library


By CHRIS MANSON
Last week the cash regis-
ter was removed from the
Gladys N. Milton branch of
the Walton County Library
System. No new books have
arrived here since August.
The air conditioner hasn't
worked for almost a month,
although a few strategically
placed fans provide a tempo-
rary solution. The propped-
open door to the Flowersview
Community Center has at-
tracted a small army of what
librarian Maria Milton iden-
tifies as love bugs. For
Milton-the daughter of the
celebrated midwife for whom
the library is named--closing
seems inevitable.
Walton County Citizen
Services Division Director
Ken Little said the state leg-
islature mandated that $5.6
million be cut from the 2008,
budget. He added that the
Milton library accounted for
just one percent of the
county's library usage in
2006. "We have a brand new
bookmobile that can service
that area," Little said.
Milton said the. entire
north end of Walton County
would be impacted if the Wal-
ton Country Board of County
Commissioners (BCC) votes
to close the library. The
Milton library services Pax-


ton along with unincorpo-
rated rural communities like
Flowersview, Glendale, and
Mossy Head. Milton said the'
library also provides Internet
access for many low-income
residents. "It's a big thing
lately. The offices where
people apply for food stamps
want you to do that online
now. Also, some students
with transportation prob-
lems are using the online
schools."
When Milton first sus-
pected the library might be
closing, she called District 2
Commissioner Kenneth
Pridgen. "They said we don't
have to worry," Milton said.
"But I'm very worried we're
going to close. This may seem
like a small decision to them,
but it has a big effect oh the
people who come to the li-
brary."
If the budget is approved
at the Sep. 24 hearing, the li-
brary would cease to operate
on Oct. 1. That's why Milton
is urging all residents of the
north end of the county to get
involved. She has posted fly-
ers in the library and at the
nearby corner store encour-
aging patrons to call Com-
missioner Pridgen's office
prior to Sep. 18.
"Before she died, my
mother tried to get this li-
brary opened," Milton said.


"She didn't live to see it open,
but she knew the importance
of education. She devoted a
lot of her life to helping
people. She realized a library
was definitely something a
lot of underprivileged people
needed."
Milton said the library's
circulation has increased sig-
nificantly since she began
working here last June. "But
you can go into Paxton.and
find 10 people who don't
know the library is here and
don't know about the services
we provide." The library has
offered computer classes and
Spanish language classes in
the past and has audiobooks
and DVD movies available
for checkout.
"They are not even spend-
ing four percent of their bud-
get on this library," Milton
said. "It's, almost like a
double standard here. This is
a matter of'we can shut them
down because their vote
doesn't matter.' That's the
attitude they're giving. But
the community has made an
effort. People are coming in
and asking what they can do
to help.
"If we can at least bring it
to the commission's attention
that this library is important
to the entire north end of the
county, I won't give up hope."


By PATRICK CASEY
The Walton County School
Board met on Tuesday, Sep-
tember 4 in DeFuniak
Springs to discuss waivers,
the dress code, and the pos-
sibility of a land purchase in
southern Walton County for
a future school site as part
of the regular bi-weekly
agenda.
Superintendent Carlene
Anderson informed board
members that the waiver cri-
teria for letting school chil-
dren in and out of the district
has run into a road block
with the county's neighbors.
Okaloosa County does not
want to update the agree-
ment at this time and Bay
and Holmes County like the
current' waiver policy that
exists.
This essentially ties the
district's hands as to making
any changes when the dis-
tricts next door to Walton
County see no reason to
change the current process.
One allowance the board is
willing to make is for the chil-
dren of students whose par-
ents work for the Walton
School District to be able to
go to school in Walton, even
if they do not meet the nor-
mal criteria. The recommen-
dations also include a provi-
sion that students who do not
maintain good FCAT levels
that enter the county will
have to return to their home
district at some point.
The issue, like many the
board dealt with on the
night, is a complex one where
changes may affect several
legal interpretations on resi-
dency and right for a child to
obtain a public education as
attorney Ben Holley pointed
out. The board will continue
to watch the waiver issue
closely, but without adjacent
counties willing to discuss
the issue, is unlikely to see
change in the near future.
The Walton County School
Board has an opportunity to,
purchase 40 acres of land in
southern Walton County as
the district is always on the
lookout for property in that
region to build schools in the
future. District Planner Torn
Blackshear informed board
member that the 40-acres
sought is strategically lo-
cated north of U.S. 98 and
east of CR-395. Blackshear
said the land has only a small
area of wetlands in its com-
pilation in the northwest cor-
ner of the tract and is con-
sidered a viable option if ac-
cess can be obtained via. an
easement for the landlocked
parcel. Blackshear stated
that this is the best choice of
16 parcels they have looked
at, but that none of the sur-
rounding landowners want


to give up an easement so fart
The district needs a 100-
foot easement across Divi-
sion of Forestry land to ac-
cess the property, but that
entity will likely want some-
thing in return for doing so.
Board attorney Ben Holley
reminded board members
that they have until Septem-
ber 21 under the current con-
tract to find a solution to the
easement issue or else they
will need to ask for an exten-
sion if they wish to pursue
that parcel of land.
The board discussed the
new dress code for Walton
County students, which has
caused some problems in in-
terpretation and enforce-
ment. Superintendent
Carlene Anderson recom-
mended allowing shirts that
do not show cleavage, as this
seems to be the main concern
with V-neck shirts. The
board members agreed to re-
move collarbone exposure as
a limitation, something that
was causing a problem in
finding compliant garments
under the dress code. Since
the dress code comes under
the Student Code of Conduct,
the matter has to be adver-
tised. Board member Mark
Davis asked to adjust the
shirt description further and
simply define it as a shirt
that does not show any cleav-
age or midriffs and is not
sleeveless. The change in
rule terminology was ap-
proved and the layering of
clothing is fine as long as it
meets dress code and the stu-
dent is covered underneath.
Board members examined
and discussed school irfi
provement plans as part of
the agenda. Board member
Mark Davis commented that
there were four schools that
lost a letter grade, but met
the goals of the school im-
provement plans. He noted
the board had approved the
plans, but asked if they need
to set goals higher so that
goals can't be met and have
the school grade go down.
Because of the complexity of
state and federal school grad-
ing initiatives, it was not
guaranteed that the same
situation would not arise
again. Board members ad-
mitted that the problem lies
with having a federal pro-
gram, a state program and a
local objective that do not
necessarily concur with the
others and the board only
has an effect on the local ele-
ment.
The Walton County School
Board will hold their next
regular meeting on Septem-
ber 18, 2007, at 5 p.m. at the
Tivoli Administrative Co- /
plex.

Anderson appointed to

serve on State Articulation

Coordinating committee


WALTON COUNTY LIBRARIAN Dan Owens (left) accepting donated bilingual
;':',* Rosemary Pendery, Eta Chapter member of Delta Kappa Gamma.


Walton County School
District's Superintendent
Carlene Anderson has been
appointed by the Commis-
sioner of Education to serve
on the statewide Articulation
Coordinating Committee.
"Mrs. Anderson was recom-
mended by the Florida Asso-
ciation of District School Su-
perintendents," said Dr.
1Heather Sherry with the
.Florida Department of Edu-
cation Office of Articulation.
"Mrs. Anderson's experience
in Florida's K-12 educational
system will be invaluable to
books this group."
The Articulation Coordi-
nating Committee (ACC) is a
K-20 advisory body ap-


pointed by the Commissioner
of Education. It is comprised
of representatives from all
levels of public and private
education: the state univer-
sity system, the community
college system, independent
postsecondary institutions,
public schools, nonpublic
schools, career and technical
education. The committee
coordinates ways to help stu-
denlts move easily from insti-
tution to institution and from
one level of education to the
next.
Mrs. Anderson is one of
three K-12 representatives
statewide and one of only two
superintendents appointed to
the committee. The commit-
tee has four standing mem-


bers from the FLDOE repre-
senting the state university
system, the community col-
lege system, public
workforce education, and the
public pre-k-12 schools.
Fourteen members are ap-
pointed by the Commis-
sioner for two-year terms
with three representing the
state university system,
three representing the state
community college system,
one.representing career edu-
cation, three representing
public schools, two repre-
senting nonpublic postsecon-
dary institutions, one repre-
senting nonpublic secondary
education and one represent-
ing students.


New books in Spanish


and English donated


Books in Spanish and En-
glish have been added to the
Walton-DeFuniak Library to
benefit those learning either
language. The Eta Chapter
of Delta Kappa Gamma So-
ciety, International, for key
women educators has re-
cently donated bilingual
books for beginning students
of either Spanish or English
and a comprehensive picto-
rial dictionary for anyone
learning either language to
Walton, Okaloosa, Santa
Rosa, and Escambia County
libraries. Each of these books
has the dual languages
printed side-by-side for con-
venience.
Last year, a local member
of the Eta Chapter, Rose-
mary Pendery, saw a need for
a bilingual section for new
language students at the lo-
cal DeFuniak-Walton Li-

Sept. 17-23
designated as
Constitution
Week
, The week of Sept. 17-23
was designated Constitution
Week, by Public Law 915,
Aug. 2, 1956. This year
marks the 220th anniversary
of the signing of the U.S.
Constitution.
American Colonists sacri-
ficed and died to establish
the freedoms guaranteed by
the Constitution of the
United States of America.
"These farsighted citizens
provided a republic which
established laws to protect
the rights of all citizens. To-
day, people throughout the
world battle for the rights
many take for granted," says
Sarah C. Levesque, constitu-
tion week chairperson, Choc-
tawhatchee Bay Chapter,

stitution again and know the

sibilities afforded Americans

brary. After conducting an in-
dependent survey with the
help of Dan Owens, Walton
County Librarian, and the
library staff, it was deter-
mined what Spanish-lan-
guage books were currently
available and which of those
were most frequently
checked out by library pa-
trons.
After discussing this with
Gene Williams, Spanish in-
structor at Okaloosa-Walton
College (OWC), and the
Spanish and English stu-
dents in her class at OWC,
Pendery approached the
ILlta Kappa Gamma chap-
ter with the idea of selecting
and donating books for this
purpose. Her suggestion was
met with enthusiasm and
work was begun to locate bi-
lingual books for beginning
students in both languages.
Ginny .McCall, Dr. Dale
Yount, Devone Barron and
Eta Chapter president
Sharon Richardson aided
Pendery in the selection pro-
cess.
For teaching purposes, an
understanding and apprecia-
tion for both cultures as well
as a satisfying learning ex-
perience was part of the cri-
teria used by Delta Kappa
Gamma. After the initial re-
view, 121 books were se-
lected, including 88 bilingual


dictionaries, to be used by
Americorp volunteers
trained at OWC to aid new
Spanish-speaking students
in making the transition into
the four-county school sys-
tems. Care was taken to in-
clude traditional stories from
both cultures.
Taking an interest and
helping to fund this project
was the Book Store on
Baldwin Ave. in DeFuniak
Springs, and the local Wal-
Mart store on U.S. 331.
Books selected for Walton-
DeFuniak Library are: DK
First Spanish Dictionary;
The Ugle Duckling (El Patito
Feo) an adaptation by Merce'
Escardo' I Bas; Have You Fed
the Cat? (Le has dado de
comer al gato?) by Michele
Coxon; With My Brother (

Fall Festival offers unique treasures

for early Christmas shoppers


The Walton County Art
League will hold its 16th an-
nual Fall Festival on Sept.
15, 2007 at the Walton
County Farmer's Market in
DeFuniak Springs. Vendors
will begin accepting shoppers
at 9 a.m. and will not close
until 4 p.m.
The annual festival is a
fund raiser for the Walton
County Art League which
was established in 1965. The
Art League, incorporated as
a non-profit organization in
1998, uses its funds to intro-
ducepeople of all ages to the
arts and provide venues for


artists to show their work,
meet with each other and
share ideas and talents.
Funds from earlier festi-
vals were used to add a meet-
ing room under the farmers'
market area. The Walton
County Art League members
meet there the second Thurs-
-day of each month for busi-
ness meetings and art dem-
onstrations. The Art League
also sponsors programs that
the public may attend, most
without charge or at a nomi-
nal charge in efforts to share
our interests and introduce
others to the arts.


The Fall Festival provides
a variety of vendor-made
items and all would make
wonderful Christmas or
birthday gifts that are not
available in department
stores. Vendors come from
all over the panhandle and
work hard all year to provide
unique and varied items.
This year there will be origi-
nal works of art, note cards
from original art, re-created
hand-crafted jewelry and
boxes and china.
For more information or di-
rections, contact Janis
Hannon at 850-835-4929.

Letters to the Editor

Editor:
I had intended this to be a letter not an editorial, but as I
saw in last week's paper some lengthy correspondence, I hope
you will grant me the same courtesy and space. I will try to
be as brief as possible, but this is a subject that should con-
cern us all.
During the summer vacation I heard on Channel 13 that
Bay County, with money from Tallahassee, had a system up
and ready to go as follows. Should there be a lock-down at
any Bay County School, all parents/guardians would be noti-
fied by phone all information pertaining to the situation and
what was happening to the children. This would be done
within an hour.
As this sounded an excellent idea, I called the Walton
County School Board to inquire if we had the same for our
children. The first lady I spoke to did not know anything about
such a plan, but transferred my call to another person. She,
too, did not know, but passed my call to a
gentleman. He said that, yes, we were going to use this new
system. It was not ready at that point, but would Pe ready
'when the school year started.
I called back a week after school had started. Guess what?
Yet another person I spoke to said we hadn't even received
Our grant from Tallahassee yet, but they j would start working
on the system when finances were received and it would be
up and working before the end of the year.
Please bare in mind, I am not being personal towards any-
one. The people I spoke to at the school board were more than
courteous and really tried to find out the information for me.
Perhaps I would have let this slip by, but after hearing that
two bomb-threatening phone calls were made to the hospital
(and in other parts of the country Wal-Mart stores were be-
ing threatened), it is obvious we are not as far removed from
this sort of thing as we thought. It is possible to walk into a
couple of our schools without being questioned, or detected.
I would ask the superintendent of schools to please explain'
to the public what has happened to this necessary plan. If
Bay County has the project up and running, it must have
been in the works for many months. In answer to a previous
email I sent to Sharon Roberts, she replied, "I received your
email and was interested in this too. I called the School
District's chief financial officer (Mr. McCall) and he said he'd
make some calls to find out about this for me. When I hear
anything I'll be sure to,email you back."
In answer to an email I sent to Mark Davis, he replied
"Thanks for the information. I will bring it up during the
next board meeting in my comments section of the agenda.
Frankly, I review pretty carefully the categorical funding that'
the State of Florida gives us every year and I did not see the
money you described for this system for our district.
'However, I will diligently see what the situation is and
thanks again for the.information."
His reply to a friend who sent a similar inquiry was "We
have both policies and procedures in place for emergencies.
Our policies and procedure include everything from 'intrud-
ers on campus' to 'fire' emergencies. We also have policies
and procedure for foul weather emergencies. After Colum-
bine, these policies were required by both the State of Florida
(He didn't say who the other party was). The intruder police
does include procedures for lock-down and parent notifica-
tion. If you need specifics about the policies, please contact
the district office at 892-1100 and they will be able to get you
copies."
We have not heard anything further from both parties. Ap-
parently the Walton School Board is not aware of these pro-
cedures. If these procedures are handled in the same way as
the
hospital bomb scare, we are in deep trouble.
These are the facts as I know them. There may be others I
do not know about. But our children and their teachers are
too precious to be left unprotected and our parents and grand-
parents do not need to be running all over town wondering
where the students are and if they are safe.
I do hope you will print this letter because these are fright-
ening times we live in and we need to know answers to this
situation.
Sincerely,
Wendy Holliday
DeFuniak Springs


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 i- Wayne Graham, who was recently appointed
to the Ukaloosa-Walton Transportation Planning Orga-
nization. \Ve regret the error

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


Editor's Comments
'le 'War On Freedom'

By RON KELLEY
There can be no question that one result of President
Bush's 'War On Terror' has been the president's 'War On
Freedom.' National news is filled with fresh examples al-
most daily. The measures that this administration has taken
toward eliminating civil rights have been deep and unprec-
edented. Overturning such poisoned democracy should be
near the top of every current presidential candidate's agenda.
I haven't heard one of them mention a thing about it.
I'm sorry to admit that these Draconian measures were
steadfastly supported by a Republican-led Congress. But I'm
also sorry about the tragic failure of the new Democratic-
led Congress.
After maligning Pres. Bush for countless assaults on
Americans' privacy and civil rights, the House Democrats
had a chance to deny the president even greater powers -
including eavesdropping on Americans without any warrant
and leaving oversight of the electronic surveillance program
to Attorney General Alberto Gonzales.
For most people, such a proposal would be a no-brainer.
After all, with Gonzales' poor record, that's just putting the
foxes in charge of the henhouse. One might think that mem-
bers of Congress, wise to the ways of politics and politicians
and their flunkies, would see this bill for what it is another
steps toward unlimited governmental power.
So what did these Nancy Pelosi-led hard chargers do when
given the chance to slap the administration's hand on an
excessive, Nazi-style secret police program?
They so feared negative spin by this same administra-
tion and of being labeled as "Soft On Terror," they swallowed
their anger and resentment, along with their honor and cred-
ibility, and passed the bill. After all, how could they "take
away the tools that America's spy agencies need to fight ter-
rorism" and what if there's an attack? They'd be blamed for
sure! So they decided not to risk.their long-term professional
political careers. (Teddy just needs a few more terms before
he is eligible to retire.)
I regret to tell you, Faithful Reader, that one of your most
important civil liberties just went away quietly. It was elimi-
nated with the stroke of a pen and it's not ever coming back.
Limitless electronic surveillance on any American citizen,
and the shadow-men don't even have to bother with the for-
mality of a warrant? Sweet!
In defense, Democrats stressed that the law would expire
in six months. Hmmm, right. Believe me, any attempt to
limit or sunset that law will be vetoed by President Bush
and whoever follows him.
Many people feel that since government hasn't yet at-
tempted to really use all the power its given, itself, that it
won't. That's naive and dangerous. Absolute power corrupts
absolutely whether you are the president or just a member
of Congress, obviously.

Kids 4-H Club


still growing


By ROBIN NEWTON
HomeGrown Kids 4H
Club has undergone some
changes. Former leader
Robin Newton has passed
the gavel to Melissa Bailey.
Bailey and her two sons have
been a part of the group for
several years and she is as-
suming the leadership of the
club to take it in a new di-
rection.
The club used to meet at
the Red Bay Community

meetings at the Coastal
Branch Library meeting
room in south Walton on the
second Thursday of each
month from 2:45 to 3:30 p.m.
The first meeting for the
2007-2008 year will be on

Although the club was es-
tablished for homeschooled
children, the new meeting
time will make it available
for all children, between the

Unlike many other 4H


Clubs, HomeGrown Kids was
and will remain a community
club, where each member de-
cides upon an area of inter-
est for their yearly project.

community service. They are
best known for their creation
of four butterfly gardens at
the Stanley House Assisted
Living center.

AMBASSADOR ASHLEY ESTES, a student at Walton
High School, spent part of her summer traveling and learn-
ing in Europe.



"People to People"

student ambassador

enjoys European

vacation


By BRUCE COLLIER
Ashley Estes is a 15-year-
old sophomore at Walton
High School, but her "sum-
mer job" took her quite a dis-
tance from her native DeFu-
niak Springs. This past July,
Ashley and a group of fellow
student ambassadors spent
20 days in Europe, part of
People to People Student
Ambassador Programs.
People to People was founded
in 1956, and has enjoyed the
support of eight U.S. presi-
dents. The current honorary
chairman is President
George W. Bush.
Ashley joined People to
People last September, and
raised the funds for the July
trip on her own. Her travels
took her to England. France,
Belgium, the Netherlands,
Germany, and Switzerland.
Among the sights she saw


were Buckingham Palace,
the Tower of London,
Stonehenge, the Normandy
beaches, the Louvre Mu-
seum, the Eiffel Tower, and
the Black Forest. She also
took a bobsled ride down the
Alps. In Germany, Ashley
was the guest of a German
family and had a taste of
German home life.
Ashley's trip earned her
high school credit, and she
has been invited to join the
People to People's 2008 del-
egation to tour Australia and
New Zealand.
The People to People pro-
gram, based in Spokane,
WA., offers international
educational and cultural op-
portunities for students in
grade school, middle, and
high school. Their online site
can be accessed at
www.studentambassadors.org

FHP releases

preliminary report on

Labor Day fatalities


By CHRIS MANSON
The Florida Highway Pa-
trol (FHP) has released its
preliminary statistics for La-
bor Day holiday traffic fatali-

curred in Okaloosa County
and none in Walton County.
The statistics released by
the FHP are preliminary and
include only crashes investi-
gated by FHP troopers. The
23 deaths were spread over
20 separate incidents with
roughly 15 percent confirmed
to have been alcohol-related.
Investigations are pending in
another 11 crashes. Four of
the fatalities were pedestri-
ans, six were motorcyclists,
and one was a golf cart
driver. Fifty-seven percent of
the crashes took place at
night.


Additionally, the FHP par-
ticipated in Operation Com-
bined Accident Reduction Ef-
fort (CARE). Operation
CARE is a national program

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 2007

Cities and states vs. feds


(PART FOUR of the Herald
series on the impact of
illegal immigration on Wal-
ton County)

By ALICIA LEONARD
In July 2007, one small
town's effort to take the law
and interpretation of the con-
stitution into its own hands
was thwarted when a federal
judge voided an ordinance
aimed at controlling illegal
immigration. Hazleton, PA.,
proposed tougher laws on
landlords and employers do-
ing business with illegal
aliens. Businesses who em-
ployed illegal aliens would
have lost their business li-
cense for five years, and land-
lords would have been fined
$1,000 per undocumented
renter. English-as-the-only
language was included in
this proposal as well. Louis
J. Barletta, Hazleton's
mayor; stated in August 2006
interview with the Washing-
ton Post, that "he wanted his
town to be the toughest place
on illegal immigrants in
America."
The push against illegal
aliens in Hazelton was
spurred by charges against
Joan Romero and Pedro
Cabrera, illegal immigrants
from the Dominican Repub-
lic, for the murder of local
citizen Derek Kichline in
May 2006. Kichline was al-
legedly shot in the head by
the duo, but the district at-
torney dropped the charges
in July 2007, due to lack of,
evidence and witnesses being
deported or changing their
story. Federal authorities are
now holding the pair, for de-
portation.'
U.S. District Court Judge
James M. Munley opined
that Hazleton's ordinance
violated the U.S. Constitu-
tion and due process of un-
documented immigrants un-
der federal law. In his 206-
page opinion he wrote, "Fed-
eral law prohibits Hazleton
from enforcing any of the pro-
evisions of its -ordinance
aimed at expelling illegal im-
migrants. Whatever frustra-
tions the city of' Hazleton'
may feel about the current
state of federal immigration
enforcement, the nature of
the political system in the
United States prohibits the
city from enacting ordi-
nances that disrupt a care-
fully drawn federal statutory
scheme."
The city of Hazleton has
vowed to appeal the ruling


South Wltrn ML quKo Con

Wat. Mq.t


and has received over
$400,000 in donations from
across the country to help
with the legal costs incurred.
So far, $200,000 of that has
been spent and the city has
been hit with a $2.4 million
bill from the American Civil
Liberties Union (ACLU) and
other organizations that
fought the ordinance. Lead
counsel Witold "Vic" Walczak
- who is also legal director of
the Pennsylvania ACLU -
stated in the fee petition that
the city was at fault for the
legal bills. "Hazleton has
used this court as its labora-
tory. Defendant's experimen-
tation over the past year
comes at a price," states the
petition.
Benjamin Stevenson,.
ACLU staff attorney in the
Panhandle, reaffirmed the
stance in an interview with
the Herald. "This is generally
an issue for federal law. It's
a complex issue that needs to
be addressed at the federal
level by Congress. It's a tenu-
ous and specific topic that
should be handled by those
equipped to change the law
and not piece-mealed to-
gether at a city or state level.'
Constituents should look to
Congress and not cities or
states for a comprehensive
solution."
Hazleton is not the first
city to run afoul of the fed-
eral government, where lax
immigration enforcement
has caused a groundswell of
ordinances and laws to be en-
acted and put to the test
across the country's judicial
systems. In June 2007, the
last immigration bill fell
through in the Senate and
spurred municipalities and
states to take action.
According to USA Today
and the ACLU, "About 100
communities have proposed
ordinances in the past year,
most penalizing landlords
who rent to illegal
immigrants and businesses
that hire them. Forty have
.passed." Multiple small
towns are passing "English-
only" ordinances to offset the
cost of interpreters for city
and county offices and to re-
duce the cost of duplicating
all official paperwork in
Spanish. Hazleton's "En-
glish-only" ordinance was re-
moved from the ACLU law-
suit and re-written into an-
other ordinance that so far
stands.
Illinois, Alabama, Califor-
nia and other states are

starting to see cities use laws
meant to punish drivers as a
tool in the struggle against
illegal aliens. The Decatur
Daily reported on a new law
enacted in Athens, AL. The
law "impounds vehicles
driven by unlicensed motor-
ists." The Athens ordinance
took effect Aug. 10 and
snaked 299 vehicles off the
street in less than four
weeks. Police averaged
nearly 18 vehicles per day. To
retrieve vehicles, owners
must pay fines, towing fees,
a $25 administrative fee and
show proof of liability insur-
ance. Only a licensed driver
can get the vehicle out of im-
pound.
Since the law took effect,
one Athens towing company
employee said the rate of car
accidents has decreased dra-
matically, but towing ser-
vices are busy with impound-
ments. Critics of the law say
it targets Hispanics and
other immigrant groups, but
the county's representatives
say it ensures safer roads
and public safety by remov-
ing uninsured and unli-
censed drivers and keeps
auto insurance rates lower.
Huntsville, AL., has a law
like this in place and Decatur
is working toward establish-
ing new laws, based on the
Athens results. I
Counties in almost every
state are getting in the ille-
gal immigration battle, as
well.
Two counties in Virginia
have been at the news fore-
front lately on illegal immi-
gration. Prince William and
its neighbor, Loudon County,
recently passed tough mea-
sures cracking down on ille-
gal aliens.
A resolution was unani-
mously approved in July
2007 by the Prince William
County board of supervisors
allowing county staff to de-
termine and deny, if appli-
cable, local public benefits to
residents who are illegally in
the country. The resolution
also empowers'local officers
to ask for immigration status
of suspects.
According to the national
publication, County News,
an August 2007 interview
with Prince William County
board chairman Corey A.
Stewart expands on the rea-
son counties are stepping up
to the issue.
"The resolutions are not a
response to the latest failure
by the federal government to
do something about illegal
immigration, but frustration
over several years of the fed's
failures to do anything about
it," said Stewart, who isn't
worried that Prince William
County will suffer the same
fate as Hazleton in the war
on illegal aliens due to the
difference in the resolutions.
"We are using federal author-
ity specifically granted to lo-
calities by congress in Sec-
tion 287(g) of the Immigra-
tion and Nationality Act to
require our police officers to
ask for immigration status
when they have probable
cause to believe someone is
an illegal alien."

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 2007

tion runs parallel to that of
Prince William's, except their
board of county commission-
ers wanted conditions de-
fined when the county could
pull or decline contracts,
building permits or business
licenses, when companies
defer from federal immigra-
tion laws. Federal, state or
* emergency medical benefits
would not be endangered by
the county's resolutions.
Walton County Commis-
sioner Sara Comander has
been closely watching the
county vs. illegal alien
trends. Comander told the
Herald, "I thought perhaps,
for us, the first way to go
would to be to address this
issue from a business stand-
point." Comander is specifi-
cally looking at employers
who hire illegal aliens in
Walton County. She contin-
ues, "If you are a contractor
and hire illegal aliens, then
I think you should be re-
moved from the bid process
or ineligible to work for the
county or to hold county con-
tracts if you're breaking fed-
eral law."
Comander has brought up
ideas to help the county with
the issue in a prior meeting
with Bill Imfeld, the finan-
cial director for Walton
County, on a rough draft per-
taining to policy and proce-
dures for purchases concern-
ing illegal alien hiring prac-
tices in Walton County.
Comander concludes, "I am
hoping that these issues and
this rough draft will be com-
ing up within the month for
us to start working on."
The disturbing trend in
Walton County of unlicensed
illegal alien drivers also
bothers Comander on a pub-
lic and a more personal level;
"I keep seeing illegal aliens
in our county being picked up
for not having a drivers li-
cense and, as a mother and a
grandmother, that concerns
me. Some of the most pre-
cious things in my life are my
grandchildren, and if some-
one is driving without a li-
cense and can't read English,
how can they obey traffic
signs and laws and .be safe
drivers? Or, for that matter,
follow directions when build-
ing a building?",
Senators and representa-
tives in many states share
Comander's concerns, as


well. States join in the immi-
gration battles mainly due to
pressure from voters, as well
as financial drains from ille-
gal immigrants not being re-
couped from the federal gov-
ernment.
According to Stateline.org,
an online data-pool of state
immigration laws, "Immigra-
tion laws in Colorado, Ari-
zona and Georgia may be the
toughest state' actions yet."
The National Conference of
State Legislation declared
"As of April 13, 2007, state
legislators in all of the 50
states had introduced at
least 1,169 bills and resolu-
tions related to immigration
or immigrants and refugees.
This is more than twice the
total number of introduced
bills (570) in 2006. Up to this
point in the 2007 legislative
sessions, 18 states (Arkan-
sas, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho,
Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky,
Maryland, Montana, North
Dakota, Nebraska, New
Mexico, New York, South Da-
kota, Utah, Virginia, West
Virginia and Wyoming) have
enacted at least 57 bills in
this policy arena, already
two-thirds of the total num-
ber of laws enacted in 2006.
State legislatures have also


adopted at least 19 resolu-
tions and memorials in their
2007 sessions."
Most states work on immi-
gration from a public service
standpoint. They look to
withhold funding for public
services, enforcing more
stringent rules when apply-
ing for identification cards
and tighter enforcement of
employee job relations and
identity.
During a recent interview
with an area television sta-
tion, Florida's First District
congressman, Representa-
tive Jeff Miller, spread the
word about what he calls "a
northwest Florida crisis. Be-
cause of the strain that some
of these illegal aliens are put-
ting on the healthcare sys-
tems, even the school sys-
tems." He says this situation
is clearly reflected in north-
west Florida. Miller said this
community is still very vul-
nerable to an even bigger
wave of illegal immigration.
"You have parts in the north-
east where you have large
populations of illegals that
have congregated and they
keep looking to the federal
government to bail them
out."
Even closer to home, state
Representative Don Brown
told the Herald about a first
draft of a bill targeting ille-
gal aliens and their drain on

local and state resources.
Brown filed the bill with
state bill writers about two
weeks ago. The proposed leg-
islation is tentatively titled
the "Florida Taxpayer and
Citizen Protection Act of
2008." The bill includes more
stringent verification process
for a Florida driver license,
a streamlined process be-
tween local and government
enforcement, tougher laws
on employers and contractors
and the curbing of social ser-
vices to undocumented immi-
grants.
Brown said, "The Florida
effort is somewhat based on
a bill that was passed in
Okalahoma and drafted to
match current Florida law.
Current immigration prob-
lems fall to the congress and
particularly the
senate." When asked why he


decided to draft the bill,
Brown replied, "It's some-
thing states can do in the
meantime and may cause the
federal government to wake
up and get moving on this is-
sue. I wanted to introduce
some type of meaningful leg-
islation on the behalf of my
constituents."
Brown says he is open to
suggestions from the citizens
he serves, "I want input from
everyone on this subject and
the bill. I am open to all sug-
gestions and would like for
people to be able to take part
in the lawmaking process
and maybe we can get some-
thing moving on.this issues
at the state level, since it
seems frozen at a federal
one."
Throughout the interview,
Brown affirmed that commu-
nities and states will pick up


this issue as long as the fed-
eral government drags its
heels toward a solution. In
the meantime, he says, this
will only increase litigation
between immigration-rights
groups and the communities
that are trying to keep laws
that the federal government
has on the books, but do not
have the money, manpower
or the gumption to enforce.

Armed Services Academy Day at OWC


Congressman Jeff Miller
(R-FL-01) has announced he
will be sponsoring the Acad-
emy Days to provide prospec-
tive service academy appli-
cants information on the
nomination process. An
Academy Day will be held at
the Okaloosa-Walton College
Niceville campus on Satur-
day, Sept. 15 at 10 a.m. in the
community gallery located in
Building K.
"This is a great opportu-
nity for students, parents
and educators of the First
District to find out what it
takes to apply and possibly
attend one of our nation's ser-
vice academies. I hope these
events will serve as a cata-
lyst to our future leaders to
chase their dreams and serve
our country" said Miller.
The Academy Days are
open to any interested high
school student, counselor or
educator with a presentation
from representatives of the
five academies. Breakout
sessions will discuss the spe-
cific requirements of high
school students followed by
individual and small group
consultation on the admis-
sions procedures and pro-
cesses for their respective
institutions.




"On Your
Side" WMBB
Anchor Team
"It's not often we have the
opportunity to meet celebri-
ties that we see everyday but
never have the opportunity
to meet. Television reporters
are depended upon to provide
the public with daily weather
and news reports. Rarely
does the public have the op-
portunity to meet these re-
porters. Well, that is going to
change when the news an-
chor team from -WMB'B-
Channel 13 comes to town
next week," says J.B. Hillard,
president of Chautauqua
Cyber Club of DeFuniak
Springs.
The Chautuaqua Cyber
Club and Okaloosa-Walton
College are co-hosting a pub-
lic forum to hear Chief Fore-
caster Jerry Tabatt discuss
his many years as a weather
forecaster. Tabatt will
present his experiences of
reporting hurricanes in
Northwest Florida, and the
changing environment.
"The 'On Your side' news
team of Amy Hoyt and Jerry
Brown come into our homes
every day with the latest lo-
cal and national news. The
one-on-one interviews by
Mrs. Hoyt are a favorite, and
Jerry Brown keeps the pub-
lic informed with his special
interest reporting," Hillard
said.
Participating will be the
Walton County Citizens Ser-
vices and Emergency Ser-
vices Departments who will
provide special information
on hurricane evacuations
and answer any questions
that might "pertain to the
county.
This event is open to the
public, and will be held at the
OWC Chautauqua Center in
DeFuniak Springs on Sep-
tember 20 at 10 a.m., room
154. For more information
call Barbara Jones at 892-

ing students are nominated

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 2007

Beasley, Scoville,

Vorwald, speak


S at Rotary


The DeFuniak Springs
Rotary Club recently
welcomed Bobby Beasley,
Walton County Supervisor
of Elections, and Bill
Vorwald of the Vote in
Honor of a Vet program.
Beasley gave an update on
activities of his office, and
Vorwald explained the goal
of the Vote in Honor of a
Vet program, which is to
recognize Walton County
veterans by encouraging
voter participation
among the entire voting
population.
At another luncheon,
Shaneika McKenzie,
Senior Health Educator
for the Walton County
Health Department, gave
an excellent presentation
about diabetes. McKenzie
explained the symptoms
and risk factors of this
increasingly prevalent
disease as well as
preventative measures,
such as regular exercise
and a diet rich in fruits,
vegetables, and whole
grains. The presentation was
very timely for some of the
Rotarians in attendance.


Rotary is a worldwide
organization of business
and professional leaders
that provides humanitarian
services and encourages
high ethical standards in all
vocations. The Rotary Club
meets each Wednesday at
noon at McLean's Steak
House and welcomes visitors
and prospective members.
City Planning Director
Greg Scoville recently
spoke with the DeFuniak
Springs Rotary Club about
some lessons of the issues
his office must address.
His major responsibility
is to define a vision for the
growth and development of
the city by setting forth its
goals and objectives. Among
the many issues he must
consider in the near future
are the comprehensive
plan, public safety impact
fees, and alternative traffic
routes for highways 331 and
90. DeFuniak Springs is now
home to about 5,300 people,
a figure that is expected to
grow in the near future.
Along with that growth
comes the need for livable-
wage jobs and available
housing.


LEE HOGANS is part of a four member horn section and performs behind Prince.


Bowerm Christ Potter,
the late great saxophonist
Illinois Jacquet, R&B
star Stevie Wonder, and
shared the stage with the
legendary Ray Charles
as a part of his orchestra,
under the direction of Victor
Vanacore.
Hogans' accomplishments


do not stop there. He
debuted his first album,
"The Vibe Orientation" in
2006. The Vibe Orientation
is a soulful mix of jazz
and R&B that was largely
written and produced by
Hogans himself.
Lee Hogans may travel all
over the country following
his love of music, but he calls


Atlanta home. His parents,
William and Belinda Hogans,
live in Tyrone ,GA; his
grandmother, Ruth Hogans,
lives in DeFuniak Springs,
FL; his great-grandmother,
Mary Anna Clemmons,
resides at the Chautauqua
Rehab and Nursing Center
in DeFuniak Springs, they
are still his biggest fans.

By JEFFREY POWELL
Few industries have
affected the Florida Pan-
handle like the Turpentine
industry. Even fewer people
have the depth and scope of
knowledge concerning the
industry like Santa Rosa
County resident Raymon'
Melvin.
Melvin, a fourth-gener-
ation Panhandle resident,
has collected the tools, folk-
lore and personal knowl-
edige to be considered an
expert in the history of this
vital link to the past.
"My daddy, granddaddy
aid great granddaddy all
worked around the turpen-
tine business," Melvin said.
"My ancestors have been in
the area since .1855."''
- Simply put, the turpen-
tine process consisted of the
collection of pine pitch (sap)
from live trees by scar-
ring the tree and placing a


ceramic or metal cup at the
base of the scar. The col-
lected pitch was then taken
to a distillery and rendered
into turpentine. The final
product was stored in wood-
en barrels and transported
by wagon to a shipping
point for distribution.
According to Melvin, hu-
mans have been collecting
pitch for use in the ship-
ping industry for over 2,500
years. In the southeast
United States the practice
seems to have been started
around 1700 in the North
Carolina area and headed
south.
"The workers traveled
south thinking there was
no end to the pine trees,"
Melvin said. "We all know
now they were wrong."
Locally the turpentine
industry peeked around
1912 when there were close
to 150 stills on what is now
Eglin Reservation and the


surrounding countryside.
By 1960, the process was all
but dead in the Panhandle.
. Melvin's presentation
titled "Tools, Toil and Tur-
pentine" was given at the
Heritage Museum of North-
west Florida in Valparaiso
on September 6, as part of
the facilities "History Sand-
wiched In" series. Visitors.
are encouraged to bring a
brown bpg lunch and enjoy,
the presentations.
"What a pleasure it is
to have Mr. Melvin share
his knowledge on such a
significant portion of our
.local history," said Heritage
Museum Director Michelle
Severino. "His knowledge
and vast collection of tools
and associated items are
certainly museum worthy."

seum programs, contact

Gir[Scouts kick-off another year


Girl Scouts throughout
northwest Florida kick-off
another year of adventure
celebrating 95 years of Girl
Scouting worldwide.
Since 1912, Girl Scouts has
been the vehicle for girls to
develop the skills and confi-
dence necessary for success.
Character development,
community service, leader-
ship and outdoor adventure
remain at the heart of the
Girl Scout movement.
Girl Scouts of Northwest
Florida invites all girls be-
tween the ages of 4 -17 to join
the world's preeminent orga-
nization for girls. Specially
designed age level programs
for Daisy (4-5 yearsold),
Brownie (6-8 years), Junior
(8-11yrs.), Cadette (12-14
years) and Senior Girl Scouts
(14-17 years) are provided to
girls in Escambia, Santa
Rosa, Okaloosa and Walton
counties. Annual member-
ship in Girl Scouts is just
$10.
, This year girls will have
the opportunity to 'Camp
Like a Girl, Cook Like a Chef,
explore international cul-
tures, travel back in time,
start their own business and
serve their local communities
through a variety of volun-
teer projects geared for each
age level. "Every year we
have Girl Scout troops volun-
teer for various events and
activities and many of these
girls keep coming back so
we've gotten to know them
and rely on them year after
year," said Vicki Horton, ex-
ecutive director of Gulf Coast
Kids House.
And Girl Scouts today don't
just sell cookies. This week,
Girl Scouts throughout
northwest Florida launch
their fall fundraiser offering
a variety of premium nuts
and candy produced by the
Trophy Nut Company.
Twelve varieties are avail-
able this year, including
chocolate mint trefoils in a
limited edition collector's tin;
peanut brittle; whole cash-
ews; chocolate toffee al-
monds; natural pistachios;
pecan supreme; cranberry
trail mix; dulce deleche; spicy
cajun mix; sugar free choco-
late toffee bits,peanut butter
cups, and fruit slices. Prices
range from $4 $8. Girls be-
gin taking orders on Sept. 14,
and deliveries begin on
Oct.29.
Like the Girl Scout Cookie
Sale, the Nut Sale is an im-
portant source of income that
helps fund program activities
for girls. "It's not just the
money that helps these
girls... they really do learn a
lot of basic values about
working, planning and sav-
ing for what they want. Even
the young ones learn to make
choices based on priorities
knowing they can't have ev-
erything now, but they can
have some of the things
they're willing to work for,"
said Pensacola troop leader
Ginger Given.
A unique aspect of the Nut
Sale is the Young Business


Owner-in-Training program
for girls in 7-12th grade. This
program goes beyond tradi-
tional youth sales programs
by providing girls the option
of operating as a sole propri-
etor or partnership,, selling
direct to area businesses.
The pre-packaged product,
a holiday gift tin filled with
Pecan Supremes, is designed
for corporate gift-giving and
includes a UPS shipping
sleeve for easy mailing.
Some people think kids
can't or don't understand
sales, marketing and finan-
cial management but the
truth is that while they may
not be able to spell 'entrepre-
neur' they certainly grasp
the concept. This is evident
by the recognition and
awards presented every year
at our annual banquet," said.
Cindy Nelson, executive di-
rector of Girl Scouts of North-
west Florida. "Believe me,
they get it."
For more information on
enrolling your daughter in
Girl Scouts and volunteer op-
portunities in your area call

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.

Things which God cannot do


By DR. ROBERT M. JAYE


In Irclhind a teacher
asked a little boy if there
was .mi thin, God could not
do. TIi,- Imlti fellow said,
"-cs' He cannot see my sins
through the blood of Jesus
Christ." In Titus 1:2 we are
taught that God cannot do
certain things,
Those who mocked Jesus
told a great truth about
Him in Matthew 27:42:
"Ht--1, It' He cannot save."
Christ Himself placed Him-
self under a necessity and
ann:mip.'bhiliiy. In order to
save us from the conse-
quence of sin, He could not


save Himself from the cross.
From all eternity there had
existed the necessity of His
dying for sin.
Again, "The Scripture can-
not be broken" (John 10:35).
The sacred writings cannot
be gainsaid nor altered in the
slightest. They are immu-
table, uncharging, eternal,
and unalterable.
Our Lord "cannot deny
Himself" (2 Timothy 2:13).
Being the faithful One, He
binds Himself under the law
of keeping His word. He
would not go back from it if
He could, and He could not


even if He would.
Remember our text of
Titus 1:2: "God cannot lie."
His promise is unbreakable.
His Word is impregnable. His
truth invulnerable. This is
all because He is the embodi-
ment of truth.
Hebrews 12:27 tells us
that there are "things which
cannot be shaken." Things
which God Himself makes
permanent must be like
Himself. Hebrews 12:22-24
tell of at least seven things
which cannot be shaken.
There awaits believers a
"kingdom which cannot be


moved" (Hebrews 12:28).
Earthly dynasties fall,
early monarchies are de-
posed, and earthly crowns
perish. The heavenly king-
dom is an everlasting one.
Believe on the Lord Jesus
and I will see you there!

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.

SCORE BY QUARTERS
Walton knocks off top-ranked FAMU High 27-13 S TONUATERS
AFMUTT


By Patrick Casey
Tarrell Bramlet tossed
four touchdown passes and
Walton scored 21 points in
the second half to rally for a
27-13 victory over Tallahas-
see FAMU. The Baby Rat-
tlers, the top-ranked team in
Class B entering the contest,
committed two costly turn-
overs in the second half that
allowed Walton to escape
with a road win and improve
to 2-0 on the season.
Walton missed a 32-yard
field goal in the first quarter
only to see FAMU break a big
play off for a touchdown on
their first series as Troy
Curry got free on a 93-yard
run for a 7-0 lead for the Rat-
tlers.
After each team went on
a long drive but failed to
score and then punted on the
following possessions, Wal-
ton put together a six-play,
59-yard drive that saw Issac
Jackson catch a short pass
and turn it into a 24-yard
touchdown to cut the margin
to 7-6. Walton failed to con-
vert the extra point as a bad
snap from center foiled the
kick and Devron Ford was
tackled trying to scamper in
for the two-point conversion.
The second half saw Wal-
ton take advantage of a short
punt to set up shop on the
Rattlers' 34-yard line to start
their initial possession. Wal-
ton needed only three plays
for Bramlet to hook up with
Michael Campbell on a 23-
yard scoring strike for a 13-6
-*T -


final margin of 27-13.
Larel Jackson sealed the
deal with an interception
with just 89 seconds left in
the game.
Walton amass'ed'293 pass-
ing yards while limiting
FAMU to 95 total yards in
the second half of play. Rich-
ard Watson was held to 90
yards on 20 carries, but Troy
Curry rushed for 140 yards
on just seven attempts,
though 93 yards came on his
touchdown run in the first
quarter.
Walton defeated FAMU
for the fourth time in five


years and will put their 2-0
record on the line on Friday
when they host the
Northview Chiefs(1-1) at 7
p.m. at Everett Yates Memo-
rial Stadium on Friday, Sep-
tember 14.-
. Northview fell to Chipley
49-36 last Friday and will be
playing their first road game
of the 2007 season. The
Chiefs are led by Nakita
Myles and feature a solid
rushing attack that will chal-
lenge a Walton defense that
has allowed only 20 points in
the first two games this sea-
son.


advantage.
FAMU caught a break af-
ter punting the ball to Wal-
ton on their next possession
as Bramlet was picked off by
Rattlers linebacker Willie
Ferrell, who promptly re-
turned the interception to
the Walton 44-yard line.
FAMU marched in for the
score on six plays as fullback
Richard Watson crashed in
from two yards out to tie the
score at 13-13. Walton's Sean
Allen blocked the extra point
to keep FAMU from regain-
ing the lead on the conver-
sion attempt.
Early in the fourth quar-
ter Michael Campbell made
one of the plays of the night
as he turned a screen pass
into a 77-yard touchdown as
he broke free from a pileup
and outraced everyone to the
endzone down the Braves
sideline.
After Walton stopped
FAMU on their next posses-
sion, the Braves caught an-
other break as FAMU
fumbled Walton's punt on the
following possession and
Kadeem Ingram fell, on the
loose football to give Walton
excellent field position at the
Rattlers 33-yard line.
Three plays produced no
gain, but Walton put the dag-
ger into the Rattlers with a
33-yard touchdown pass to
Beau Rushing on a 4th-and-
8 play that saw Rushing
make a spectacular grab over
his left shoulder in the left
corner of the endzone for the

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 2007


Wewa
By PATRICK CASEY
Sophomore Chance
Knowles broke open a close
game with a pair of fourth
quarter touchdown runs as
Wewahitchka knocked off
South Walton 25-7 in a non-
district contest.
Knowles, who rushed for
160 yards on only 11 carries,
had scoring runs of 64 and 44
yards less than a minute'
apart in game time to turn a
12-7 contest into a 25-7 vic-
tory.
The game started with
Billy Burnett scoring on the
opening possession for the
Seahawks as he turned a
quarterback keeper into a
47-yard touchdown run for a
7-0 lead just two minutes
into the contest.
A South Walton fumble set
up the Gators lone score in
the first half as Ryan Myers
capped a 16-yard scoring
drive with.a 3-yard run to cut
the deficit to 7-6. The extra
point failed, though, leaving
the Seahawks a slim lead at
halftime after the two squads
played in a solid rainstorm


By Patrick Casey.
Holmes County rallied
from a 10-0 deficit as sopho-
more quarterback Matthew
Carroll hit Brad White with
a 13-yard touchdown pass in
the third quarter as the
Bluedevils claimed an 18-16
road victory over the Freeport
Bulldogs.
Freeport started quickly as
the defense provided the first
score as Spencer Martin
scooped up a Tyler Cooey
fumble at the Bulldogs 20-
yard line and returned the
miscue the rest of the way for
an early 7-0 lead.
The Bulldogs added to the
lead on their next possession
as they marched 36 yards in
eight plays as Spencer Mar-
tin connected on a 43-yard
field goal to up the margin to
10-0. Holmes County
awoke with a 73-yard kickoff
return by Ty Short to set
Holmes County up on the
Freeport 7-yard line. Randall
Works finished the drive with
a 7-yard scamper as Holmes
County cut the deficit to 10-
6.
Holmes County took the
lead on their next possession
as Ty Short connected with
Daniel Herberth on a half-
back pass from 32 yards out
for a 12-10 advantage after
one quarter of play.
The Bulldogs defense
stopped Holmes County on a
drive late in the first half and
promptly marched 65 yards
for the go-ahead score in less
than 90 seconds using some
trickery of their own. Cole
Weeks hit Hoss Morrison on
a short pass only to have
Morrison toss the ball to
Nathan Hendrickson who
was trailing the play.
Hendrickson took the hook-
and-ladder play the remain-
ing 45 yards to give the Bull-
dogs a 16-12 halftime advan-
tage.


hands South


for most of the second quar-
ter.
Wewahitchka didn't let
the Seahawks hold on to the
lead for long as the Gators
took the second half kickoff
and marched 57yards for the
go-ahead score as Chase
Harvey snuck in from a yard
out to giveWewa a 12-7 lead
they would never relinquish.
South Walton's offense
could not get on track in the,


second half as" Kenzie
Clemmons suffered a leg in-
jury that limited his ability
to carry the ball and the
Seahawks passing game
couldn't help the rushing at-
tack break out of the dol-
drums. The Seahawks did
not help themselves as they
fumbled the ball away four
times for'the second consecu-
tive week and could manage
only 28 total yards of offense

Freeport had a drive
stopped with less than four
minutes to play when Cole
Weeks tossed an interception
at the Bluedevils 26-yard
line, then saw a final oppor-

Bulldogs muffed a punt re-

that allowed Holmes County
to run out the clock and claim
the win.

have sent the contest into
overtime for the Crusaders.
Tate built a 14-0 lead and
never trailed in the contest
as the Crusaders have lost a
pair of close games to start
the 2007 season.

Jay put together a 94-yard
touchdown drive and owned
the football for nearly the
entire fourth quarter as they
won their first game of the
year 16-8 over the Vernon
Yellowjackets. Royals backup
quarterback Steven
Brabham hit Devin


Castleberry with a 30-yard
scoring pass to even Jay's
record at 1-1 on the year.
Brabham, a sophomore, was
filling in for Brandt
Hendricks who was unable to
play due to a concussion.

Blountstown senior full-
back Ryan Baker scored the
game-winning touchdown on
a 17-yard run in the third
quarter and then helped the
Tigers' defense protect the
lead by making 17 tackles
and forcing a fumble as they
defeated West Gadsden 14-7.

HOPE students at WHS build success one paper tower at a time


Hope means more than
just "the feeling that what is
wanted can be had" at Wal-
ton High School (WHS). For
members of the freshman
class, it also refers to the new
'Health Opportunities
through Physical Education
class (HOPE), the newest
graduation requirement for
the class of 2011. The new
class is an additional way for
WHS to conduct its "Aca-
demic Ambush" the 2007-
08,theme for educational suc-
cess.
HOPE replaces the 'Life
Management Skills' class and
personal fitness courses of the
past, but still maintains focus
on young people developing


. -


responsible decision making
behaviors and interpersonal
communication talents, and
learning about the preven-
tion and control of lifestyle
diseases like HIV/AIDS,
other STDS, heart disease
and diabetes. The second.
component of HOPE concen-
trates on individual fitness
choices and the importance of
a lifetime commitment to
physical well-being.
Recently, students in the
HOPE class had the oppor-
tunity to evaluate their role
in group dynamics, as well as
the way American teenagers
relate to each other, by build-
ing construction paper tow-


ers. The objective was to
brainstorm all possible ideas
and then create a freestand-
ing tower of maximum
height with only six pieces of
paper, masking tape, glue,
and scissors. The students
added the competitive spirit
and the battle was on.
Several groups chose the
skinny tube approach, while
. others styled their master-
pieces after Oriental pago-
das or elementary stacks of
blocks. The activity con-
cluded with written self-
evaluations about individual
personalities traits that func-
tion as strengths and weak-
nesses in small group assign-
ments.

By DOTTY NIST
According to a Sept. 10 de-
cision, Walton County's bud-
get for 2007-08 is not to ex-
ceed $128,168,120, repre-
senting a $9.4 million de-*
crease as compared with the
current year's budget.
The proposed county-wide
millage rate is not to exceed
8.3563 mills, plus voted debt
service of 0.0144 mills, total-
ing 3.3707 mills, and 0.5069
mills for the North Walton
Mosquito Control District.
This represents a 9.01 per-
cent decrease below the
rolled-back rate, the rate
that would have essentially
generated the same ad valo-
rem tax revenue as the cur-
rent year.
One, mill amounts to one
dollar for each $1,000 in as-
sessed property value.
Decisions on the maxi-
mum budget amount and
millage rate were reached
unanimously by the Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC) this
week. Some adjustments to
the budget remain to be
made and will be considered
at the final county budget
hearing on Sept. 24. It is still
possible for the proposed
budget to be lowered, but not
increased.
This year's state tax re-
form legislation required
Florida counties to cut taxes
back to 2006-07 fiscal year
levels. Also, Walton County
was one of 17 Florida coun-
ties subject to an additional
nine-percent cut as man-

Local artist




donates 9/11 original


By JEFFREY POWELL
Well-known local artist
Donna Burgess has donated
her original artwork titled
"911" to the South Walton
Fire District's (SWFD) head-
quarters located at 911 N.
CR-393 in Santa Rosa Beach.
The installation ceremony
was part of the South Wal-
ton Tourist Development's
(TDC) ongoing Art in Public
Places program. The cer-
emony was held on Septem--
ber 11, six years after the
New York City tragedy.


"We are honored to accept
this commemorative art-
work," said SWFD Chief Rick
Talbert. "As we see the paint-
ing from day to day it re-
minds us of our brother
firefighters who sacrificed
their lives for others on Sep-
tember 11, 2001 and will give
us added motivation to follow
our mission of prompt, com-
petent and caring response
in time of need."
Approximately thirty
people attended Tuesday's
ceremony held at station 3.
Those attending received a


complimentary "911" print.,
The painting was created in
the days following Septem-
ber 11-, 2001 to raise money
for the New York Police and
Fire Widow and Children
Benefit Fund. The endeavor
raised $50,000 in just six
weeks and was a profound
experience for Burgess.
"This was the most re-
warding task I have ever
taken on," said Burgess.
"Sometimes we have to be
torn apart to be put back to-
gether again."
.The Art in Public places


program was created by the
TDC Arts and Culture Com-
mittee. The committee cre-
ated this program in an ef-
fort to compliment public
buildings to create a sense of
pride, place and enhanced
community identity and to
promote the arts community
in Walton County.
"The TDC is honored to be
able to facilitate this event
today in memory of those af-
fected by 9-11," said TDC
spokesperson Tiffany
McCaskill.

Brown addresses property insurance issue


By DOTTY NIST
"It's not an insurance cri-
sis," was Don Brown's sur-
prising comment to members
of the Walton County Cham-
ber of Commerce on Sept. 5.
In the opinion of the Dis-
trict 5 state representative,
the high cost of property in-
surance in Florida is a
"symptom" of a problem, and
that problem is "Florida's
enormous vulnerability to
hurricanes."
Brown's remarks came on
the occasion of the Sept. 5
Walton County Chamber of
Commerce Power of Busi-
ness Luncheon at the
Sandestin Linkside Center.
Brown, a DeFuniak
Springs insurance agent,
served on the Florida
Legislature's Property Insur-
ance and Casualty Insurance
Reform Committee, which
was created in 2006 to exam-
ine problems with the insur-
ance market and make rec-
ommendations for solutions.

ture met in special session

"3:10 to Yuma"


THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 2007


By BRUCE COLLIER

Westerns manage to get
made in every decade. Most
are still worth watching,
even those hobbled by the
fashions and social con-
sciences of their respective
decades. Remember all those
flared trousers and Fu
Manchu mustaches in 1970s
westerns, giving way to mul-
lets in the '80s and frock
coats in the '90s? Westerns
have variously offered thinly-
veiled metaphors for
McCarthyism, grim celebra-
tions of male violence, even
the occasional feminist state-
ment. The best ones offer
simple conflicts between
right and wrong, and stories
based on the consequences of
choosing one or the other.
James Mangold's "3:10 to
Yuma" pulls together some of
the most compelling ele-
ments of the classic West-
erns. The plot is deceptively
simple: will the good guy get
the bad guy on a train to
prison before the bad guy's
gang can spring him? The
screenplay, based on a story
by Elmore Leonard, lays on
a few complications, all char-
acter-driven. Good guy Dan
Evans (Christian Bale) has a
wooden leg, a drought-
starved ranch, and a son who
doesn't think much of him.
Bad guy Ben Wade (Russell
Crowe) is a murderous rob-
ber of armored payroll
coaches, but is also courteous
to women, quotes the Bible,
and is a fair sketch artist.
Wade's "family" of robbers is
shepherded by Charlie
Prince (Ben Foster), a cold-
eyed killer utterly devoted to
his boss. When Wade slips up
and gets himself caught af-
ter a heist, Evans and a hast-


ily-improvised posse are
hired by the railroad to es-
cort their prisoner to a train
to Yuma prison, and the gal-
lows. The chase becomes a
war of wills and wits between
Evans and Wade.
The movie contains most
familiar Western set-pieces -
the cattle ranch, saloons,
stage coaches, a railroad
work camp, hostile Indian
territory, and finally the sta-
tion platform with the epony-
mous prison train. Mangold
takes a little time setting up
the relationships and mark-
ing off the conflicts, then lets
the apparatus run. What
makes it look as effortless 'as
it does is mainly due to his
actors. From the two name
stars to the supporting and
bit players, the casting
choices are all near-perfect.
Crowe has had great suc-
cess playing heroic, self-sac-
rificing types, while Bale is
probably the only actor in
history to have played both:
Jesus Christ and Batman.
The fact that both come from
the former British Empire
(Bale is Welsh, Crowe a New
Zealander) accounts for their
near-flawless American West
accents. Of the two, Bale has
the tougher acting assign-,
ment. Evans is a very ordi-
nary man, teetering on the
edge of bitterness and des-
peration, who takes the
Yuma job because he needs
the money to keep his ranch
from foreclosure. Otherwise,
his is a reluctant courage.
Evans does the most chang-
ing, reaching deep into him-
self to finish a job "when no-
body else would."
Crowe is frequently the
good guy in his films, even
when flawed. His success
with Wade comes from mak-


ing the outlaw charming,
even occasionally admirable,
all the while protesting that
he's really "rotten as hell."
Crowe avoids the tired cli-
ches of the latter-day West-
ern bad guy psychopathic
stares, maniacal laughs, ran-
dom acts of sadism and
gives a very plausible por-
trait of a dangerously likable
killer. When Evans' oldest
son William, a devoted
reader of dime novels about
bandits like Wade, disobeys
his father and catches up
with the escort, Wade
needles Evans, "He's notfol-
lowing you, he's following
me."
Other good performances
come from Gretchen Mol as
Mrs. Evans, Alan Tudyk as
Potter, the town horse doctor
who rides along to patch up
the wounded, and Logan
Lerman as William, whose
hero-worship gradually
shifts focus. An almost-un-
recognizable Peter Fonda
has a juicy role as Byron
McElroy, a Pinkerton guard
with a long-standing grudge
against Wade.
."3:10 to Yuma" offers
plenty of shooting and deadly
violence, but it's not the
bloody acrobatics of "The
Quick and the Dead." It's a
moral tale, more in the tra-
dition of "High Noon" or
"Unforgiven" than the nobly-
intentioned "Dances With
Wolves." Master Western di-
rector John Ford may not
have approved of this movie's
ending, but he would have
understood the road it takes
to get there, and the ques-
tions that are raised and
answered in all really clas-
sic Westerns.

All aboard.

By JEFFREY POWELL,
"This award means a lot
for the South Walton Tourist
Development Council,"
(SWTDC) said SWTDC Di-
rector of Public Relations and
Visitor Services Tracy
Louthain. "We have been
working on this campaign for
the past three years."
The 'Award of Distinction'
was received recently at the
Florida Public Relations As-
sociation (FPRA) Image
Awards Banquet held in
Sarasota. The FPRA Golden
Image Awards sets the stan-
dard for excellence among
public relations campaigns in
Florida.
Over the past three years
the SWTDC, has spear-
headed an aggressive beach
safety campaign to educate
the public about beach safety
and the flag warning system.
Visitors from outside the
area are often 'unfamiliar
with the dangers associated
with rip currents. A series of
nine drownings due to rip
currents over the 2003 Me-
morial Day weekend
prompted the SWTDC to


ISSUE FROM FRONT


frame.
'Brown told the gathering
that Florida is at the top of
the nation in terms of in-
sured coastal exposure at a
total of almost $2 trillion.
"Nearly 80 percent of
Florida's insured exposure is
coastal," he added. Brown ob-
served that there has been
little interest in recent years
by residents, permitting au-
thorities, or developers in
limiting development in the
state's disaster-prone areas.
Legislators have also been
"loath to pass laws nega-
tively impacting develop-
ment in their home districts,"
he added.
Brown predicted that "the
worst is yet to come" in terms
of losses associated with hur-
ricanes. He estimated that
losses from a repeat of the
1926 Miami hurricane could
easily exceed $500 billion.
He spoke to the need for
the state to attract new capi-
tal to finance risk-taking as-
sociated with development in
disaster-prone areas.
Other recommendations
by Brown included strength-
ening of building construc-
tion standards, enforcement
of building codes, fortified
home iroti ,illin raising pub-
lic awareness of hurricane
risks, and insurance rates
based on .olnd actuarial
principles" that would be ad-


equate and correspond to ac-
tual risks, rather than rates
controlled by the govern-
ment.
While the last recommen-
dation would result in higher
insurance rates for some
property owners, based on


their location, Brown argued
that to do otherwise would
only perpetuate the "conduct
of the past" at the root of the
situation at hand.
Fully recognizing his
stand on the property insur-
ance issue to be a controver-


sial one, Brown nevertheless
passionately vowed to perse-
vere.
"In your business, your po-
litical life, there are some
things worth fighting for,
worth dying for," he con-
cluded.

pursue an aggressive beach
safety campaign that has
grown under the Beach
Safety Education Commit-
tee, appointed in 2003 by the
Walton Board of County
Commissioners. An intricate
part of the education process
are the lifeguards on the
beaches. According to the.
"SWTDC, inii July, lifeguards
interacted with more than
11,600 beachgoers, educating
them on the flag warning
system and other potential
beach hazards.
"As education and preven-
tion remains a top priority
for beaches of south Walton',
it is an honor that this cam-
paign continues to receive
awards and now has been
recognized at the state level,"
said SWTDC Executive Di-
rector Kriss Titus. "The
beach safety campaign has


evolved over the last three
years and today is enhanced
through the TDC's unique
partnership with the South
Walton Fire District, Walton
County Sheriffs Office and
the community."
According to Louthain, the
campaign has been so suc-
cessful that other communi-
ties are using the SWTDC's
as a guide.
We have been in discus-
sions with other Florida
beach destinations that
would like to fashion their
beach safety campaigns after
ours," Louthain said. All of
the efforts made by the
SWTDC, during this cam-
paign are geared toward visi-
tor safety, Louthain stressed.
"We. want the people that
come to the beaches of south
Walton to have a safe and
enjoyable experience."

ceived over the past two
years, that he was asked to
come back on his own.
His musical career has
spanned more than a decade.
The more than 300 songs he
has written and produced,
have made him a staple in
the country music industry.
With songs like Tim
McGraw's The Cowboy in
Me," Steve Holy's "Brand
New Girlfriend," and "These
Days" and "My Wish," by Ras-
cal Flatts, Steele has made a
name for himself not only in
Nashville, but around the

Steele performs frequently
around the country, solo, with
his band or with such artists
as Delbert McClinton, Brad
Paisley, Lynyrd Skynyrd and
Keith Urban. When he is not
on the road performing, he is
in the studio recording with
such artists as Keith Ander-
son and Montgomery Gentry.
Each year the Rosemary

2007-2008 Art exhibit season


The Mattie Kelly Fine &
Performing Arts Center at
Okaloosa-Walton College in
Niceville features two art
galleries which host a series
of touring and local art exhi-
bitions. All exhibits in the
OWC McIlroy and Holzhauer
Galleries are free of charge
and open to the public.
The OWC Mattie Kelly
Arts Center Galleries are
open Monday to Thursday
from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and
Sunday from 1 to 4 p.m. The
galleries are closed Friday,
Saturday and college holi-
days. The art galleries also
feature a volunteer corps of
docents who assist with the
art exhibits.
Two simultaneous art ex-
hibits appear Sept. 9 to Oc-
tober 11 "Tactile Traces -


Fine Art Quilts" and "War-
riors: The Navajo Code Talk-
ers of WWII."
"Tactile Traces" represents
the work of three artists and
features more than a dozen
fine art quilts. The exhibit's
title refers to the legacy of
stitching and cloth as coming
from and through the hands
of women. Each artist has
exhibited widely in both na-
tional and international ven-
ues and their works are in-
cluded in museums and pri-
vate collections. The fine art
quilts in the exhibit repre-
sent a wide range of the ex-
pressive power of thread,
cloth and color.
The "Navajo Code Talkers
of WWII" exhibit features 40
black and white photo-
graphs; 20" x 24" in format.


The photos are by Kenji
Kawano, a Japanese photog-
rapher who is the official
Navajo Code Talkers Associa-
tion photog-rapher. It was
the work of the Code Talkers
who provided the USA our
nation's only totally secure
cryptogram speaking in
their native language to re-
lay vital information between
the front lines and USA war-
time headquarters. The cryp-
tograms of the Code Talkers
were a vital part of the war
effort, because the Japanese
and others were not able to
decipher the messages.

THE WALTON COUNTY
Board of County Commis-
sioners met on Sept. 10 for the
first of two public hearings
for consideration on the 2007-
08 county budget. Kay Brady
of the Council on Aging ad-
dresses the commissioners.


THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 2007


RATE FROM FRONT



lature.
Lowered penny sales tax collections funding the county
landfill, a cut in federal Housing and Urban Development
funding, and reduced recreational plat fee revenues from
new development were among the non-ad valorem budget
items that resulted in further reduction of the proposed 2007-
08 budget, according to Walton County Finance Director Wil-
liam Imfeld.
To be determined is the county's funding level for the Coun-
cil on Aging. The county had proposed putting $75,000 in
the budget for the organization in order to ensure that none
of the meals being provided to seniors would have to be cut
out. Discussion at the Sept. 10 meeting was inconclusive as
to whether that funding level would be sufficient not to im-
pact the meal programs.
An addition to the budget as proposed at the county's July
budget workshop is $19,500 in funding for the Resources for
Human Development nonprofit organization, which coordi-
nates jobs programs for the developmentally disabled.
Previous uncertainty over Walton County Sheriff Ralph
:Johnson's 2007-08 budget was resolved at the Sept. 10 hear-
ing, with Johnson agreeing to forego hiring any new person-
nel with the agreement that his current employees receive
up to an eight-percentpay raise.
Sheriff's Office employees got only a three-percent raise

under the current year's budget, in contrast with county em-
ployees, who got a maximum seven-percent pay raise with
merit increase in the 2006-07 budget.
No funding had originally been proposed in the new bud-
get for the Economic Development Council of Walton County
(EDC), a nonprofit organization. However, on Sept. 10, the
commissioners opted to extend one-fourth of the $77,000 that
had been the county's contribution to the EDC for the cur-
rent year. The amount is to come from $500,000 budgeted
for economic development but unencumbered.
Additional funding to the organization from the budgeted
economic development funds is to be considered in three
months.
In the meantime, the commissioners said they wanted to
meet with the EDC and "seek solutions" with regard to eco-
nomic development.
"I think the objective is to make it better for all involved,"
said District 3 Commissioner Larry Jones.
"I'mi very much interested in accountability," said District
4 Commissioner Sara Comander.
Additional discussion concerned the Gladys Milton Li-
brary in Flowersview, which had been scheduled to be closed
on Oct. 1.
Maria Milton, a citizen, brought forward concerns about
the closing. Milton told the commissioners that this is the
only county library branch in northern Walton County and
that it is being used "more and more" by students and by
citizens who need computers to apply on-line for services.
Imfeld noted that the county has "a preliminary finding"
that there is an asbestos problem in the library building.
Milton did not dispute the presence of asbestos but said

that if it does exist it has been there for the entire seven
years that the library has been open.
"This is a late, late, late, late excuse," she charged.
The commissioners were aware that a $65,000 cut had
been proposed for the county library system but indicated
that they had not known that it would result in the closing
of any library.
"I didn't know this was happening," said District 5 Com-
missioner Cindy Meadows.
"We want to serve the public," said Ken Little, county citi-
zen services director. Little commented that he had thought
the county would be "remiss" in continuing to use the build-
ing in the presence of asbestos. He explained that the plan
had been to expand bookmobile services to fill the need in
that community. He added that the Flowersview library rep-
resented two percent of the total business of the county li-
brary system last year.
Milton stated that the bookmobile would not serve, the
need.
"We very much want to keep a library open at
Flowersview," said Comander.
County staff members were directed to research ways to
continue with a community library in the Flowersview com-
munity, including removal of the asbestos and use of a tem-
porary building.
The proposed county budget may be viewed on-line on
,the county Web site, www.co.walton.f.us under the finance
division section.

The final budget hearing is set for 5:05 p.m. on Sept. 24
at the Walton County Courthouse in DeFuniak Springs.



ACAS Civil War Gold

presentation slated


The Emerald Coast Ar-
chaeology Society presents a
video journey into the under-


Ak~rk


water world of Archaeology.
The public is invited to visit
the remains of the S.S. Re-
public, a Civil War ship sunk
during a hurricane in 1865.
The S. S. Republic was a
paddlewheel ship built in
Baltimore in 1853, originally
christened the S. S. Tennes-
see. She plied the waters of
the Eastern seaboard and
journeyed to Europe. During
the Civil War she saw action
in both the Confederate and
Union Navies. Damaged in
the war, she was acquired by
a New York shipping mag-
nate who renamed her. Learn
the rest of her story and what
happened to her passengers
and a fortune in gold and sil-
ver coins on that final voyage.
Saturday, Sept. 22, atl
p.m., at the Indian Temple
Mound Museum, 139 Miracle
Strip Parkway, Fort Walton
Beach.

A person whose substantial inter-
ests are affected by the Consent Or-.
der may file a timely petition for an ad-

or may choose to pursue mediation
as an alternative remedy under Sec-
tion 120.573, Florida Statutes, before
the deadline for filing a petition.
Choosing mediation will not adversely
affect the right to a hearing if media-
tion does not result in a settlement.
The procedures for-pursuing media-
tion are set forth below. Mediation may
only take place if the Department and
all the parties to the proceeding agree
that mediation is appropriate. A per-
son may pursue mediation by reach-
ing a mediation agreement with all
parties to the proceeding (which in-

ing) and by showing how the substan-

ceived by) the Office of General Coun-
sel of the Department at 3900 Com-

include the following:

diator has yet been chosen;
(f) The name of each party's rep-
resentative who shall have authority

and
(g) Either an explanation of how
the substantial interests of each mne-
diating party will be affected by the
action or proposed action addressed
in this notice of intent or a statement
clearly identifying the petition for hear-
ing that each party has already filed,
and incorporating it by reference.
(h) The signatures of all parties or
their authorized representatives.
As provided in Section 120.573,
Florida Statutes, the timely agreement
of all parties to mediate will toll the time
limitations imposed by Sections
120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes,
for requesting and holding an admin-
istrative hearing. Unless otherwise


agreed by the parties, the mediation
must be concluded within sixty days
of the execution of the agreement. If
mediation results in settlement of the
administrative dispute, the Depart-
ment must enter a final order incor-
porating the agreement of the parties.
Persons whose substantial interests
will be affected by such a modified fi-
nal decision of the Department have
a right to petition for a hearing only in
accordance with the requirements for
such petitions set forth above, and
must therefore file their petitions within
21 days of receipt of this notice. If me-
diation terminates without settlement
of the dispute, the Department shall
notify all parties in writing that the ad-
ministrative hearing processes under
Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida
Statutes remain available for disposi-
tion of the dispute, and the notice will
specify the deadlines that then will

day night Blackman Motor
Speedway in Blackman, FL.,
and posted his ninth win of
the season on Saturday night
at Southern Raceway i-n
Milton, FL.
Both Sessions and Ussery
have 620 points. Sessions'
total is based on his 16 best
finishes in 29 starts. The key
to Ussery getting into the
championship hunt for the
South Region title is that he
has earned his 620 points in
just 14 starts, and he still has
two events to earn full points.
If Ussery can pull off two
wins with a field of 14 cars
in his next two starts, he can
earn 100 more points. Wil-
son, and the rest of the driv-
ers in the top ten of the
StormPay.com WRS South
Region point standings have
reached the 16-start mark,
and are now netting points,
or replacing their worst fin-
ish of the season with a
higher point finishing posi-
tion. .
Wilson's three lowest
point totals among his 16
best finishes are three 42s,
which means he has to fin-
ish fourth or better in events
with a car count of over 14 in
order to net any more points.
Ussery's lowest point total in
his 14 starts is a 34.
If Ussery can win again
with a high car count after
his 17th start, lie could net
another 16 points, and if Wil-
son finishes outside the top
four, Ussery could move to
within six points of Wilson.
Ussery's next two lowest
point totals are a pair of 40s,
so there is a possibility he
could net another 20 points.
In other StormPay.com
Weekly Racing Series South
Region action over the week-
end, Ryan Little, of Satsuma,
AL., picked up his fourth se-
ries win of the season on Sat-
urday night at Deep South
Speedway in Loxley, AL., and
Richard Stephens, of Phenix
City, AL., won his first South
Region event of the season on
Saturday night at Butler
County Motorsports Park in
Greenville, AL.

Rose, LA., took his fifth win
of the season on Saturday
night at Al Raceway in
