Paxton council

By BRUCE COLLIER
The regular monthly'
meeting of the Paxton Town
Council on Sept. 11 had a
short agenda, with several
items of proposed expendi-
ture put off until after -the
Council's budget workshop.
Council members Bobby
Kemp, Ann Sexton, Bill
McRae, Jenice Armstrong,
and Joe Melton were all in
attendance, along with
Mayor Wanda Smith and,
City Attorney Loriann Bytell.
The meeting came to order at
7 p.m.
Following approval of the
August minutes and bills,
and a request for waiver on
a water bill, the Council
heard a presentation and
proposal by Suncoast Secu-
rity. Suncoast had previously
submitted a proposal to in-
stall and maintain a security


and alarm system for the
Paxton Town Hall. Various
Council members questioned
the Suncoast representative
about details of the system,
including sensors for glass
breakage, response time,
availability of repair and
backup systems in the event
of power outages. Following
the question and answer ses-
sion, the Council agreed to
defer the final, decision until
after the budget workshop on
Sept. 18.'
Next on the agenda was a
presentation by Don Foun-
tain, the Florida and Ala-
bama marketing and sales
director of Solid Waste Haul-
ers. The company is owned
by Todd Schweizer. Fountain
advised the Council that his
company had been in discus-
sions with a military subcon-

ing was adjourned before 8
p.m.
City Planner Latilda

sion for his building permit.
He explained that access tb
the commercial property to

off by road work on the U.S.
331 by-pass. He noted thaI,
with the real estate market
in a slump, this has had a big
im pact on the ability to build
and sell for potential custom-
ers. The Council approved
his request.
City Attorney Clayton
Adkinson presented the sec-
ond readings of two new or-
dinances. The first of these
restricts areas in which
sexual offenders may live
and the second deals with re-
strictions on how close they
may be to the city's parks.

BankTrust broke ground
for its newest location Mon.
Sept. 17 on U.S. 331 S. Un-
der a small tent, soft drinks
and homemade cookies were
served. Hats, fans, pens, and
coffee cups emblazoned with
the company's logo were
given away.
"When you look at the
strategic perspective of the


Panhandle, DeFuniak
Springs is at the heart of
where things are going to be.
We want to be part of that,"
said Mike Fitzhugh, presi-
dent and CEO of BankTrust
Florida.
Headquartered in Mobile,
AL., BankTrust opened its
first branch in 1985.
BankTrust branches are cur-
rently scattered throughout


Alabama and Florida, includ-
ing Freeport, Santa Rosa
Beach, Destin, Crestview,
Niceville, Grayton Beach,
and in Bay County, The De-
Funiak Springs branch will
bring the total number to 32.
"We treat people the way
they want to be treated, and
in the long run, everything
works out for everyone," said
Fitzhugh. Among the unique


benefits BankTrust offers its
customers-a courier service'
that comes to a client's busi-
ness "so that you do not have
to fight the traffic" and ex-
tended cutoff times for depos-
its. All decisions are made at
the local level. Additionally,
BankTrust is the only pub-
licly traded bank in Walton
County.
Olivia Black, marketing


director for BankTrust
Florida said, "The commu-.
nity can benefit from us be-
ing here. And we can help the
community. Everyone out
there is talking about their
customer service, but we go
above and beyond to make
things easier for our custom-
ers."
BankTrust is shooting for,
a May 2008 opening.

City Marshal's call-in program for elderly, disabled


The DeFuniak Springs Po-
lice Department (DFSPD) re-
minds the public of its "Call-
In Program." This program,
serves the community's dis-
abled and elderly population,
especially those who live
alone. Participants in the
program are called each


morning by a DFSPD staff
member at a pre-set time to
verify their welfare, and to
determine if they have any
needs that the DFSPD may
be of any assistance in pro-
viding, or seeing provided by
the appropriate agency/orga-
nization. If no answer is re-


ceived at the time the officer
calls, a patrol officer is dis-
patched to the address of the
participant for safety assur-
ance.
Family, friends, or neigh-
bors may consider calling the
DFSPD to solicit help for


someone who may be reluc-
tant to do so. In such as case
a staff member would visit
that person further describ-
ing the program, and its ben-
efits. Some information is
needed at set-up time for the
call-in program, including
emergency contact name and


phone numbers, the location
of a hidden key (if applicable),
and what time to call each
morning. All information, in-
cluding participation, is kept
confidential.
Those interested in par-
ticipating, or soliciting for


someone else, should call the
DeFuniak Springs City
Marshal's office at 892-8511,
stop by Police Headquarters
at 355 U.S. 90 East, or email

Cops gather to


remember comrades


By ALICIA LEONARD
On September 11, 2007,
members of Walton County
law enforcement gave tribute
to their fallen comrades by
taking part in the Summit
for Heroes. Officers with the
Defuniak Springs Police De-
partment, Walton County's
Sheriffs Office (WCSO) and
Tallassee law enforcement
members, walked to the top
of the highest elevation in
the state, located in the com-
munity of Lakewood, FL.,
near Paxton.
The officers gathered to
hold a brief memorial ser-
vice, observed a moment of


silence and ended with a sa-
lute to their enforcement
brethren.
While talking to reporters,
DeFuniak Springs Police
Lieutenant Bill Chapman
said the event "helps Ameri-
cans remember law enforce-
ment officers are around to
protect and serve their coun-
try in any way. When the at-
tacks initially happened in
2001, it was very devastat-
ing, not only for law enforce-
ment and firefighters, but
the country as a whole. A lot
because our fellow officers,
our brothers and sisters, had
lost their lives. It has a lot of
meaning, especially to some-


one like me who's very patri-
otic and very much in love
with his country."
WCSO Community Rela-
tions Officer Anna LaCour
said she got the officers to-
gether for the memorial af-
ter receiving a letter from a
police lieutenant from Indi-
ana. LaCour said," I thought
this was an interesting and
doable project for our local
law enforcement. I hope to
have even more participants
in next year's memorial. "
According to the "Cops on
Top" website, the organiza-
tion was founded by Ser-
geant Keith McPheeters of
the Farmington Police De-


apartment in New Mexico in
1998 as a way to honor fallen
officers and remind commu-


nities of their sacrifices.
Twenty-eight states took part
in this year's memorial ser-


vice with services at the
highest locations in those,
states.


ORDINANCE FROM FRONT


side."
Planning director Pat
Blackshear explained,
"There is no provision in our
code about what constitutes
a garage sale, but there are
other problems besides this
one situation. People that do
have garage sales leave un-
sold items out on the street
and so forth."
Citizen Kay Lambert said,
"We are the ones that
brought up the ordinance be-
cause of a person who manu-
factures goods on his prop-
erty which he sells by the
truckload with a vendor's li-
cense. Twelve out of 13 week-
ends he had sales in his yard
selling birdhouses, chairs
and such that he manufac-
tures on his property. He has
cedar buildings on his prop-
erty. All of the homeowners
on our road signed a petition
to get this stopped. People
should think about other
people. You cannot have yard
sales constantly that are not
yard sales. These items are
manufactured in bulk and
then sold this way. If the
sheriff's department will not
enforce the traffic, what are
we to do? We don't want
people to not have yard sales,
we just want [to set] some
boundaries."
Frank Wolf, another citi-
zen from the same area as
Lambert, spoke to the com-
missioners as well. He said,
"It would be a different ball,
game if he was selling knick-
knacks and so forth. There
would be no problem. There
are things being built here on
a daily basis. This workshop
where the products are being
manufactured is very close to
my guesthouse. People have
been forced to leave because
they can't sleep with a buzz


Son!o, o fi t


saw operating all the time.
The man does not even live
on the road; he just does his
manufacturing and selling
there. Our properties are
then made to look like they
border a flea market. My
main beef is he is selling stuff
he is making with employees
coming in to help him make
the items. This has been go-
ing on for two years," he con-
cluded.
Commissioner Susan
Horn questioned the need for
permits, but Patton said if
permits were not acquired,


how would the county know
how many garage sales were
being held by each person.
Terrell said flatly there
should be no commercial en-
terprise running in a rural
area.
, In the end, Patton made a
motion to remove the permit-
ting provision but leave the
penalties, remove the park-
ing enforcement stipulation
and change the frequency to
once a month and forward to
the BCC with those modifi-
cations. All voted to pass the
motion.

Sanctuary in the city


(Part Five of the Herald se-
ries on the impact of
illegal immigration on Wal-
ton County)

By ALICIA LEONARD

The church often reflects
the environment of its
community's status quo. St.
Margaret's Catholic Church,
in De Funiak Springs, is no
different. In times of trouble,
need or fear, humanity
throughout the ages has
turned to religious leaders
and the church for sanctuary.
In ancient times, Greeks,
Hebrews and Egyptians
practiced asylum or sanctu-
ary for those sought for per-
secution on a variety of rea-
sons. The practice was then
adapted by the early Chris-
tian church and written into
English laws from the fourth
through the 17th century.
'Over the last four yea rs,


St. Margaret's and other area
church congregations have
been successfully evolving,
despite some growing pains,
into a reflection of the great
American melting pot, pro-
viding a respite for an in-
creasing number of local im-
migrant groups.
Rev. Richard Dawson, pas-
tor of St. Margaret's, sat
down with the Herald to dis-
cuss his views and experi-
ences with immigration, le-
gal and illegal, in the area.
"We do have a fairly good-
sized Hispanic community
here in Walton County of le-
gal permanent residents. I
have to judge from many of
the calls we get here at the
church that we also have im-
migrants who are in transi-
tion or have just arrived
here. Many are from Cuba,
the Dominican Republic, and
various' other Spanish-
b-peakihg count ries, not just


Mexico and the only time I've
really seen this group shy
away is when they have com-
munication problems, which
is a very human thing to do.
We shy away when we fear
being misunderstood and
they are no different," he
said.
A Spanish-speaking group
of church attendees were
traveling to Crestview to at-
tend services when Dawson
arrived in the area four years
ago. "I had heard about the
group and I knew the.pastor
in Crestview was going to be
moved. Often times that has
an impact on an extraneous
group, and upon learning
that they were from Walton
County, I invited them to at-
tend our church here. First,
because Walton County is
their home and secondly,
travel was an issue. Some-

That's What I Like

About The South
By RON KELLEY

I3lu.s skies, a cool northern breeze. Everything is still
green, but fall's palette of colors is poised to begin painting
the fi_,-sts that surround us. This is the very best part of
the year for lots of us Walton County folk. The tourists have
gone home, the kids are back in school. This is our chance
to enjoy summer's last hurrah without the traffic and
crowds.
Some will head to the beaches, others will put their boats
in the Bay. There'll be more than more than a few fishing
poles dangling above the plethora of creeks, lakes and bay-
ous that dot Walton County. Rounds and rounds of golf will
be played, kids will be out four-wheeling, some will be tend-
ing their gardens and mom and the little ones will be out at
the parks.
Now that the heavy, sweltering. days of summer are
mostly past, it seems there's an extra spring in people's steps
and a ready smile on people's faces. Underneath it all, I can
sense a little burbling excitement as people anticipate some
late summer fun, the coming of the county fair, Halloween
Happening and the start of football season at local high
school and college stadiums, as well as the pro teams. Out
in the distance, our season of holidays.
If it sounds like I'm bragging, it's only because I am.
Let's face it, you never hear about anybody retiring and
going north, do you? So I welcome those new to our little
corner of paradise, the nouveau-Southern folk, I mean. They
were born somewhere else but, by golly, they got here as
soon as they could. I'm proud to have been born in the South,
but I try to remember the less-fortunate and I remind my-
self that there, but for the grace of God, go I.
So, here we are. I know we still have another seven weeks
of hurricane season, but NOAA scientists say that La Nifia
is on the way, which means we are less likely to experience
an H-word here in the Florida Panhandle this season. The
evening breezes are cool, the dragonflies are getting fat on
mosquitos and dog-flies. I even saw some fireflies the other
night, for the first time in ages. For a moment, all is right
with the world. I
So, whether you take your late summer fun fast and fu-
rious or slow and easy,'you've got plenty of opportunity to
do both right here.
Like the old Bob Wills tune goes, "Well it's way, way down
where the cane grows tall, down where they say Yall.' Walk
on in with that Southern drawl. And that's what I like about
the South."

able Army officer, was sent to Iraq in February 2007 to com-
mand the current military effort there with the understand-
ing that he would return in September and testify before
Congress concerning the status of the war. This action was
approved by 100 percent of Congress at the time it was done.
Now, upon his return to report as he was directed, before
he uttered a single word of his testimony, the vile, left-wing
organization MoveOn.Org published a full page ad in the
leftist New York Times accusing General Petraeus of being
a traitor.
The Times gave MoveOn a $100,000 discount to make
sure the libelous and shameful hit-piece ran.
Not one single Democratic presidential candidate would
criticize or distance themselves from this despicable attack
on an honorable American fighting man who risks his life
daily to protect them. Hillary Clinton took it a step further
accusing General Petraeus of being a liar. By this cowardly,
politically motivated attack on a dedicated, lifetime combat
commander, the left trashes all of our fighting men and
women who go into harm's way for our benefit. Their claims
to care about our troops ring hollow and hypocritical.
Is there any shred of honor remaining in the leftist cause,
or is that character trait present still' only-among-our-mili-
tary men and women?

Editor:
I'm always reading outrageous letters from veterans regard-
ing their benefits. They are embarrassing to read., They al-
ways state how benefits were .taken away, or not enough
money is being spent. That's not totally true.
Many of the benefits were given away because many veter-
ans didn't do anything about it. They didn't write or call their
congressmen or senators. Send them post-cards with your
thoughts. Don't make long statements. They will read post-
cards.
Take charge of your life. Help yourself while helping oth-
ers. Join organizations that help veterans nationally, state-
wide, county-wide, and city-wide.
Join the VFW, AMVETS, American Legion, Disabled Ameri-
can Veterans, or visit our local VA office here in DeFuniak
Springs. Vote.
Don't tell me these organizations don't help, because I know
for a fact they do. Stand up and be counted, instead of grip-
ing. You were once an American fighting force; you can still
be.

Screams were heard across the nation in 1957. Not be-
cause of the Russians starting the space race, but because
of the population explosion that year.
Screams were heard across the nation in 2007. Not be-
cause of higher tax rates or Hillary Clinton running for
president, because of the population that was born in 1957
turned the big 5-0. I was heading to work when I heard the
song from Billy Joel, "We Didn't Start The Fire." A:very
good and quick history of the nation starting...yes, you
guessed it, 1957.
I can look back and see the many things that has
changed in the 50 years TV went from black and white
with three channels with nothing on to flat screen and color
with 300 channels and still nothing on.
I saw the wall that separated communist from the free
world fall in a matter of hours, but the wall of race still
stands hard. I've seen gas go from 23-cents a gallon to $2.30
and higher. I have been around the world and in these 50
years, DeFuniak grows old most gracefully.
Styles of hair hasn't changed a bit. It's either long, or
short except for the color, gray being most common. For
the ones who still have hair. My style in clothes hasn't
changed. Nothing can beat a good pair ofjeans and tee shirt.
I did notice the waist line move a few numbers in size,
Seeing my kids grow and having to earn the title of
"grandpa," and seeing others kids grow has earned me the
title of'Mr. Mark.'
It's been a wonderful 50 years and plan to see more. I
want to wish the rest of folks born that wonderful year a
'Happy Birthday,' with the best of health. You are more than
welcome to join me as I put on my sunglasses, light the
candles to my cake and scream.
Growing older,
Mark Asselstine

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 20, 2007

Christmas Reflections teams


up with DBPA for 2007


PAGE 7-A





-1 4,L


By CHRIS MANSON

For Jim Ash, Christmas is
a year-round event. "It's the
perfect job," the maintenance
supervisor for Christmas Re-
flections said. "I'm retired. I
do this for six months a year
and spend the rest of my time
with my 10 grandkids." This
will be the eighth year for
Christmas Reflections, the
annual display of holiday
sights and sounds around
Lake DeFuniak.
Ash promised this year's
festivities will be the same as
last year's and, if all goes
right, will commence on
Thanksgiving night and con-
tinue through New Year's
Eve.
"We have electrical boxes
all through the lakeyard and
we just want to make sure
they are all working," said
Ash. "A surprising number of
them got hit by lightning last
year." Ash's work crew con-
sists of county inmates. Be-
ginning in October, state
prisoners will join in the ef-
fort.
Preparation for the holi-
day spectacular got under-
way on Sept. 1. The long pro-
cess begins with the instal-
lation of 160 power recep-
tacles. "Once that's done, we
have to make sure they all
work and keep working,"
said Ash. Then a state in-
mate crew of 10 will install
lights, bushes, and assorted
figurines. Ash hopes the kids.
will like the dinosaur figu-
rines that have been added
for 2007.
"Big dinosaurs," said a
member of the work crew.
The lights and other ef-
fects Ash estimates the
lights alone number around
4 million are stored inside
the former Boy Scout hut and
in a Walton Road facility
near the high school. "A large
building stuffed to the hilt,"
said Ash.
Circle Drive will again be
closed off to regular traffic for :
Christmas Reflections, but
Ash said everyone around
the Lakeyard has been coop-
erative in the past. "There's
no Scrooge," said Ash.
Admission will be $3 per
person, ages six and under
are free. Season passes are
available for $25.
Howard Rinker, chairman
of Christmas Reflections for
the third consecutive year,
said the admission price has
not increased. "We try to
keep it as economically sen-
sible as we can." All proceeds
are used for new lights, in-
surance, advertising, and
salaries. Currently, Ash is
the sole paid employee. Last
year, portions of the proceeds
were donated to the
Chautauqua Hall of Brother-
hood and the city's planned
skateboard park.
Rinker said, "What we in-
tend to do is let the commu-
nity know we're not just
there for Christmas. We're
trying to be involved in the
community and give back to
the community for support-
ing us." He estimated that
last year an average of about


17,600 people came through,
not counting foot traffic.
New to Christmas Reflec-
tions this year is a partner-
ship with the DeFuniak
Springs Business and Profes-
sional Organization (DBPA).
"It's a joint effort," said Ash.
"We'll have a booth at the
county fair in October. We
sponsored their fireworks
display this year, so they'll
have volunteers manning the
ticket booths and pretty
much anything we need
them for." Rinker said an ap-
preciation dinner for Christ-
mas Reflections volunteers
will be held at the end of the
holiday season. Christmas
Reflections donated $5,000
toward the 2007 July Fourth
celebration, which the DBPA
organizes and sponsors.
Once Christmas Reflec-
tions begins, Ash and his


crew will set up a pair of 500-
watt speakers in the
Lakeyard Ampitheater and
pump out Christmas music.
Ash said, "The music echoes
really well across the lake. It
gives the whole thing a nice
sound effect." He added that
anyone wishing to donate
holiday CDs can drop them
off at city hall.
"There are so many people
involved that if I tried to
mention them all, I'd forget
a few," said Ash. He singled
out John Sims and Rupert
Padgent. "If it wasn't for
them, none of this would
have happened. John came
up with the idea, and Rupert
is the one who helped design
the electrical grid."

Photos and video from pre-
vious events are available at
www.christmasreflections.com.


JIM ASH INSPECTS one of the permanent circuit breaker panels along Lake DeFuniak
in Chipley Park. The maintenance supervisor for Christmas Reflections said, "These boxes
have been here since they were put in for the Bicentennial in 1976. They've been here awhile
and had their use, but it's taken more work to keep them up than it has anything else in the
Lakeyard."


Young singer sets sights on Broadway


By ROBIN NEWTON
Cecile Lindegren, chorus
teacher at Walton Middle
School, expects to see Jeremy
Cowart's name in lights one
day. Cowart, a rising ninth-
grader, received the out-
standing vocal soloist awards
during both his seventh- and
eighth-grade years in the
Walton Middle School Cho-
rus. He received superior rat-
ings for all of his adjudicated
solos at the Florida Vocal As-
sociation Music Performance
assessments, as well as the


Florida League of the Arts
Student Solo Adjudications.
Not allowing the break
from school distract him from
his singing, Cowart attended
two high school summer
choir camps this year. The
first was at the University of
Georgia, Athens,, June 3-8,
and the second was at the
University of West Florida,
Pensacola, July 22-27. He
also received a partial schol-
arship to attend the UWF
Summer High School Music
Camp in 2008. A CD was


made at each choir camp con-
cert.
The young singer intends
to continue sharing his love'
for music by participating in
shows at the Florida
Chautauqua Theater and
hopes to audition for some
future shows at Okaloosa-
Walton College. His dream is
to perform on Broadway.
Lindegren proclaims, "With
his talent in singing and his
personal drive to learn all
that he can about music, he
is well on his way to success."

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.

AUTHOR JEAN SASSON addressed an audience at
Florala Health and Rehabilitation Center last week.



Author Jean


Sasson gives talk


in Florala


By BRUCE COLLIER
The Florala Health and
Rehabilitation Center in
Florala was the site of a visit
Sept. 14 by Jean Sasson, au-
thor of several books on the
lives of women in the Middle
East. Sasson, a native of Lou-
isville, AL., has traveled to
some 65 countries, and lived
in Saudi Arabia for 12 years.
She has been writing since
1990.
Sasson spoke before an
audience of some 20 resi-
dents of the center, including
her mother. Sassori briefly
described herself a', being
from a "poor family." and told
listeners of her encounter
with the women and customs
of such countries as Saudi
Arabia, Kuwait, and Iraq.
Sasson spoke of her sight of
veiled women walking in
public places. "You lose some-
thing when you can't see
someone," adding that
women are not allowed to
drive or choose husbands for
themselves. Meeting indi-
vidual women led her to
write their stories, including
that of Princess Sultana of
Saudi Arabia. "We women all
share the need to live in dig-
nity."
Sasson's talk was laced
with anecdotes about her
travels in the Middle East,
including one where she tried
to order a snack at a food
court, and was .refused by a
vendor. The vendor told her
that women were not allowed
to eat in public because men
reportedly found the move-
ment of their lips while chew-
ing "too provocative." She
also saw men carrying sticks,
who were permitted to beat
women they found to be be-
having in an inappropriate
manner in public. In.another
incident, Sasson, described
seeing a wife assert her in-
dependence with her hus-
band, who insisted his wife
ride in the bed of his truck
while allowing a baby camel
to ride in the cab. "Enough!"
said the woman, who finally
compelled her husband to

give her the camel's seat.
Sasson said that her
books, "Princess," "The Rape
of Kuwait," "Ester's Child,"
and books on Sultana's fam-
ily, sell in the millions. Fol-
lowing the imposition of
sanctions on Iraq under its
former president, the late
Saddam Hussein, Sasson
wrote, Saddam asking to be
allowed into Baghdad to re-
port on the impact of the
sanctions, and was some-
what surprised to receive an
invitation to Baghdad from
Saddam's office.
Sasson found herself wel-
'com'eda warmlyy, adding that
Saddam's government
"didn't think she was any"-
thing to worry about," being
a woman. "I wasn't followed
or searched," she said, add-
ing, "I wanted to be followed."
Her hosts' insistence that she
travel only in the company of
a man led her to demand a
female guide. Sasson's re-
quest was granted, and her
guide, Mayada, became a
close friend and correspon-
dent. Mayada was later im-
prisoned, and related her ex-
periences to Sasson.
Sasson concluded her talk
by saying, "All my heroines
.are courageous women
whose stories must be told."


The Nursing and Allied
Health programs at

The Child Advocate
By Julie Hurst, director
Children's Advocacy Center
School is in session! I hope everyone's child/children had
a great start to the new year. My son started middle school.
I went to sixth-grade parent orientation night and walked
away completely overwhelmed. Funny thing is, my son
isn't. So I took their suggestion and am giving up some of
my "reins." He's doing just fine.
As it is school time, I thought it would be most appropri-
'ate to share with parents a few safety tips for children at
bus stops. Unfortunately, we live in a time we have to be
overly cautious for the safety of our children. No longer can
we just let our children roam "free".and that includes walk-
ing or riding a bike to and from school or just to and from
the bus stops.
Take a moment and share these tips with your children.
Work with other parents to have children walk to bus stops
and wait in groups. A child is most vulnerable when
alone. Use the "buddy system" whenever possible. Create a
safe walking plan with your child using the safest and most
direct path to the school bus stops. Establish "safe houses"
along the route to the bus stop that you child can go to if
approached while walking to or from the bus stop. Avoid
clothing and toys with your child's name on them. Tell your
child to share their feelings if they feel scared, uncomfort-
able or confused about waiting for the bus. Teach your child
to tell the bus driver if they are approached while waiting at
a bus stop. Teach your child to move away from any vehicle
that pulls up to the bus stop. Teach your child to never ac-
cept a ride to school if they are waiting at the bus stop. These
important tips will help keep our children safe.
Just a reminder we will be celebrating the Emerald Coast ,
Children's Advocacy Center's (CAC) tenth anniversary on
Wednesday, October 10, 2007, from 3-5 p.m. Come and join
us as we celebrate 10 years as an organization. Come take a
tour of the center and join us for refreshments. The CAC is
located at 401 McEwen Drive, Niceville.
Did you know over the past 10 years there have been more
than 15,000 reported cases of child physical and sexual abuse
in Okaloosa and Walton counties? You can help the CAC con-
tinue its.% %ork to prevent child abuse, protect children, and
restore livees. Iqn ce!ertatipn of the tenth anniversary, you
can contribute by 'spotdiioring a commemorative brick in our
Wall of Protection. Individual sponsorships are available for
$250. and corporate sponsorships are available for $500. Cor-
porate bricks are 8x8.and will include company logo.
We hope you will help us make a difference in the life of a
child. For more information about anniversary or commemo-
rative bricks, contact the CAC at 833-9237, ext. 223. As al-
ways, if you suspect or know of child abuse, please contact
the Florida Child Abuse Hotline at 1-800-96-ABUSE.

Lack of legal immigrant
documentation is something
Dawson was dealing with on
the day of this interview. A
young mother with three
small children had called the
church seeking help with
food. Her spouse was incar-
cerated and she lacked
proper working papers to get
employment in the area.
"This makes it very difficult
for these families where you
have this type of situation,
where the parents may have
work visas and their children
have graduated high school
here, but can't gain employ-
ment due to lack of documen-
tation. So, we are in the pro-
cess of trying to help this
young mom and her family as
we speak."
Fear of deportation is an-
other problem Dawson deals
with often and Hispanic lead-
ers within the church group

PAXTON F

tractor (unnamed) that was
interested in leasing the
city's airport hangar. The
hangar is reportedly ideal for
the subcontractor's business,
the storage, sorting, and
transportation of surplus
metals. Fountain
said that employees would
come and go during regular
daytime business hours, but
the hangar would not be per-
manently manned. Nor, he
added, would the operations
create an "eyesore." He could
not make a commitment on
behalf on the subcontractor,
but said that efforts would be
made to -persuade the com-
pany, "if at all possible," to
hire locals. The subcontrac-
tor would also erect a secu-
rity fence, and would need
between one and two acres.
Council member McRae said
that the hangar building
comes with one acre already.
Melton suggested that the
security fence might inter-
fere with the existing heli-
copter pad. Kemp said that
the pad might have to be
moved. No figures were dis-
cussed, but McRae suggested
that the Council pursue the
lease "for a fair price." The
Council decided to defer the
matter until after the budget
workshop and meeting.
McRae next informed the
Council that he had been in
discussions with the city of
Freeport about acquiring a


FROM FRONT

batting cage for Paxton's
ballfield. McRae said that the
cage works satisfactorily and
that Freeport has offered to
give it to Paxton, but was
concerned about potential
city liability for injuries. City
Attorney Bytell said that li-
ability questions depend on
individual circumstances.
McRae noted that in Free-
port, notices are posted pro-
hibiting use of alcohol, horse-
play, requiring adult super-
vision, and other caveats for
use of the batting cage. A
motion was made, and
passed, to accept the cage.
Council member
Armstrong expressed her
concern over the cemetery in
Paxton, saying bluntly, "It's
a mess, what can we do?"
Suggestions were made by
Council members and at-
tendees, ranging from hiring
maintenance workers to
scheduling a donated effort
or public "cleanup day." Also
discussed were the questions
of responsibility for cemetery
maintenance versus lot
maintenance, and how to
fund maintenance and re-
pair.
I Bytell advised the Coun-
cil that selling cemetery lots
is a conveyance of property
and rights, and that the city
should be careful about inter-
fering. However, she sug-
gested that a list of owners
be made and a letter drafted

Mayor Mickey Marse re-
ported receipt of three bids
for the 40-feet-by- 120-feet
water department building.
The bids ranged from a low
of $152,233, up to $180,575.
The Council voted to accept
the lowest bid, which was
made by Euchee Valley.
Paul Fischer addressed
the Council on the subject of
damage done to his-home re-
sulting from .rupture of the
water line to his refrigerator
ice maker and the splitting
of a water filter. This re-
sulted in considerable dam-
age due to flooding of the
residence. Fischer alleges
that a very high-pressure
spike in the Freeport water
supply lines caused the


failures. Fischer is working
with his insurance company
to settle the financial on the
claim. He wants the city to
reimburse him for the de-
ductible he will have to pay.
City Clerk Robin Haynes told
Fisher that the city's insur-
ance carrier is awaiting in-
formation from the'
homeowner's insurance car-
rier on the matter. The city
will communicate with
Fischer when the 'insurance'
reports are available.

David Miller appealed to
the Council to allow "Grit &

banner in front of the Corner
Cafe for about three weeks
during their annual perfor-
mance period. This request
was approved.

An attendee suggested hold-

be made in the letter, only a
statement of the problem and
request for suggested solu-
tions. "We're dealing with
very sensitive issues," said
Bytell. Armstrong moved
that Bytell draft the letter
and set up a meeting of own-
ers. The motion was carried.
In the meantime, said

and delivery of crack cocaine,
the DFSPD executed a
search warrant at around 7
p.m. on Friday, September
14, at a residence on 82
North First Street in DeFu-
niak Springs. During the
search, officers collected one
and one-half grams of crack
cocaine, less than 20 grams
of marijuana, numerous con-
trolled prescription drugs,
scales and other drug para-
phernalia. As a result of the
illegal drug activities, the
seizure included a 1993
Cadillac car and some cash.
Officers arrested Tyrecka
Monic Richardson, 25 and

Bernal pleads no

contest to three counts

of DUI manslaughter


By BRUCE COLLIER
Jesus Rangel Bernal, 28,
plead no contest on Sept. 17
to three counts of lUI man-
slaughter in the deaths of
three people on June 24,
2006. Bernal entered the
plea on the day his trial was
to begin. He will be sen-
tenced on Oct. 18, and is re-
portedly facing between 38
and 55 years in prison.
Bernal was driving a truck
that struck and killed James
Rook, 43, his wife Margie, 41,
both of Cincinnati, OH., and
injured their passenger,
Magan Doherty, 14. Arriulfo
Morales, 28, a passenger in
Bernal's truck, was also
killed. Another of Bernal's
passengers, Jorge Rivera, 41,
was injured.
Bernal reportedly tried to
pass a car on the right, went


out of control, and overcor-
rected, causing a head-on col-
lision with the Rooks' vehicle.
Bernal was himself injured
in the collision. The accident
took place on U.S. 331, near
the northern end of the Clyde
B. Wells Bridge, closing the
bridge and backing up traf-
fic for hours in all directions.
No evidence was found
that Bernal was in the
United States legally. His
listed country of residence
was Mexico, and no Social
Security number .was found
for him. The plea was en-
tered following Judge Kelvin
Wells' promise that he would
cap the sentence at 55 years.
Under the circumstances of
the accident and the number
of deaths and injuries, Wells
could have sentenced Bernal
to life imprisonment.

reported kidnapping


and sexual
On Saturday, Sept. 15, at
approximately 8:30 p.m., De-
Funiak Springs Police
(DFSPD) officers responded
to a residence in reference to
an alleged kidnapping and
sexual assault.
An adult female told the
officers that earlier that day,
at approximately 6i30 p.m.,
she had been walking on
North 20th Street and was ap-
proached from behind by a
man. The man reportedly
grabbed her throat and put
some type of object in her
back that she believed to be
a gun, while forcing her into
a four-door gold car driven by
another man. The alleged


assault
victim was then taken to a lo-
cation near Old Landfill
Road, where she said she was
forced to engage in oral sex.
The victim said she was later
dropped off at another loca-
tion, where the suspects fled
the scene in the vehicle. The
victim was not otherwise in-
jured during the incident.
The Walton County
Sheriff's Office accompanied
DFSPD investigators on the
scene. The investigation re-
mains open. Anyone with in-
formation on this incident
should contact the DFSPD at

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 20, 2007


THIS IS JUAN, a legal permanent resident who would
not give his last name, but talked about his own immigra-
tion difficulties.


SANCTUM

by- police and such and we
have a number of permanent
residents who are living here
and have given up the mi-
grant life and they are pro-
viding leadership to those
trying to integrate into the
community."
Housing also appears to be
needed in the immigrant
community. Dawson said,
"I've heard that many in the
community need better hous-
ing arraignments. Affordable
housing is something that we
really. need to improve the
living standards for all fami-
lies in our area."
St. Margaret's pastor is
also very aware of the legal
issues his church and congre-
gation may face; "As a church
and leadership community,
we also have to be respon-
sible to the legal authorities,
so it becomes a two-edged
sword at times. Where, yes,
we want to protect and help
those who are in need, and
I'm not sure what we can do
to protect those who are run-
ning from the law. But I
haven't, thank God, had any
experience with that side of


FROM 10-A


it. I'm not sure what I would
do in that situation prob-
ably call legal services to see
what we path we need to fol-
low to not break the law, but
to assist those in need if we
could."
Dawson says many mem-
bers of the church are start-
ing to realize that, "both
groups we have here in the
church are very similar. The
only difference is the culture.
In many Hispanic countries,
the government runs the
church, where as here, they
are separate entities. So, the
biggest differences we expe-
rience in the church and our
communities is a little akin
to culture shock, as it's
called."
Church members have ex-
pressed to Dawson that they
are moved by "the humility
and hard-work ethics of the
growing Hispanic congrega-
tion. They very much want to
be of service anyway they
can. I think that was most
evident post-hurricane,
many workers who cleaned
up homes, streets and debris
were of Hispanic origin and


happy to do what they could
do for our community. They
are not only beginning to
show a deep commitment to
their faith, but also, hope-
fully, to this area as their
home."
The church is proactive in
helping its members become
acclimated to their new
home. Dawson continues,
"We, as a church community,
have activated a process
through our diocese avail-
ability to try and assist with
English as a second lan-
guage, especially for the
adults. We have programs
through Catholic Charities to
assist with paperwork to ob-
tain proper documentation -
if one is willing to accept that
charity. On one occasion
since we have been here, we
had representatives from the
consulate in Miami and they
were here for two days, help-
ing people with their paper-
work for legal immigration
status." Dawson says it is the
widely-held view of the
church to help illegal immi-
grants with documentation
as much as possible to, "help
them achieve the same op-
portunities that the rest of us
had, when our ancestors
came here, to allow them to
become part of the American
community and we try to do
everything we can to assist
that."
The Hispanic immigration
influx is very similar to the
history of American immi-
gration says Dawson, "There
has always been unrest after
large groups have immi-
grated, to this country. The
Italian community, the Irish
community, the Polish com-
munity, were all met with
adversity when they came
here, but through diligence,
they proved that this was not
a whim and became produc-
tive and even celebrated
members of our society. The
ultimate goal of immigration
is to enrich our community
through the sharing of each
others' cultures."
Dawson feels that many
families migrate to the Pan-
handle in pursuit of the
"American Dream." He said,
"It sounds stereotypical but


we, as a country, have given
the impression that there is
a great deal of money here
and, as such, there is always
an opportunity to get a job
and earn money and make a
life for yourself, maybe even
get rich one day. Often times,
as well, I hear of families still
connected to their homeland.
Not only do they send money
back home, but also sponsor
friends and family to come
here due to dire economic
and political hardships faced
in native countries. They are
an incredibly kind,
hardworking, close-knit,
family-oriented group."
Family unity was evident
last week when the Herald
attended the Sunday Span-
ish-speaking services at St
Margaret's. Families arrived
with little girls decked out in
their lacy, starched Sunday-
finest and little boys wiggled
in pews with their father's
arms wrapped around them.
Babies cried and moms
bounced to soothe them.
Warm smiles greeted the
known and strangers alike..
One of those families that
greeted the Herald belongs to
Juan, a 33-year-old welder by
trade, husband, father of
three and a legal permanent
resident (LPR) of Walton
Couhty for the last four
years. Juan agreed to speak
with the Herald through in-
terpreter Father Alexis
Zuniga on the condition that
only his first name would be
used.
Juan first emigrated from
Mexico City to the United
States when he was 14 years
old. He left in search of a bet-
ter life. Juan's parents have
never been to the U.S. and he
spoke of what he left behind,
"We didn't have very much
growing up, as far. as money,
but we had a lot of love in our
home. I 'have a better life
now, money and job-wise, but
I think we have lost some of
that love during the journey
here. This place, the church,
has restored that feeling for
my family and me. This
church feels like home and
there is love here."
Juan says he has felt the
brunt of racism toward the


Hispanic community most of
his life, "I've been followed
around in stores and over-
heard things people say, but
all I want is just to have a
home and family and earn a
living. Overall though,' I feel
a sense of harmony here, a
feeling of family and it feels
good."
Zuniga, a missionary from
Honduras, oversees six other
weekly Spanish-speaking
church services between the
De Funiak service he per-
formed this night and his
home base in Tallahassee. He
stepped out of the role of in-
terpreter and reaffirmed
Juan's words during our in-
terview, "These people work
very hard. They have beau-
tiful families. They are kind
and loving. The truth in the
immigration issue has to be
more than just legal or politi-
cal. It has to do with the per-
son, with human beings..
That's a very important part
of immigration that
shouldn't be forgotten."
Juan expressed the need
for "acceptance of each oth-
ers' cultures and differences.
No matter what color people


are on the outside or what
language we speak, we are
the same on the inside and
want the same things, to be
*happy, to be equal."
Zuniga agrees, "I love all
of these people. They are
family and positive contribu-
tors to any community they
live in." Dawson concluded
his interview by saying, "I
would want to remind the De
Funiak community about the
time we spent in the '80s and
'90s promoting going back to
our roots, investigating gene-
alogy, developing our under-
standing of where our fami-
lies are from, and I think
many people were surprised
at the developments they
found, bbth in a good and a
bad way. If we can continue
that mindset, which is, very
few of us are native and
many of our ancestors were
immigrants, if we remember
where our roots are, then we
should be willing to look into
our hearts and reach out to
assist this new group that is
trying to migrate here."

Next week: schools, em-
ployment and immigration.


SIGNS OF THE TIMES, like this one, are often displayed
at pro-immigration demonstrations.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 20, 2007


St. Agatha's welcomes Scott


, The Rev. John C. Scott, a
native of Panama City, has
been called to be the vicar
at St. Agatha's Episcopal
Church on Circle Drive in
DeFuniak Springs. This is
a permanent assignment
for Scott. Scott is a
graduate of the University
of Florida and St. Luke's
Episcopal Seminary, and
the University of the .South,
Sewanee, TN.
He worked in the DeFuniak
area before seminary as a
forester with International
Parer Company. After
serving parishes in Florida


and Virginia for over 30
years, Scott retired from
the active ministry in 2003.
He and his wife, Sheila
Leto Scott, also a native of
Panama City, relocated to
Chapel, N.C. and Boynton
Beach, FL. to be near
children and grandchildren.
Despite their retirement,
Scott says he felt called to
serve a church again and
began to search. When he
discovered that St. Luke's
in Marianna was without a
minister for the coming year,
he met with their vestry and
accepted a call as an interim


rector.
Though having never
served at a parish in
northwest Florida, Scott and
his wife felt that they were
home again. He discovered
some new relatives and she
attended her Gainer family
reunion at Econifina Creek
in Bay County.
They began to explore
other church openings in
the area and discovered St.
Agatha's.
The Scotts say they look
forward to the future, and
hope to recharge their
spiritual. batteries as they


minister to the people of St.
Agatha.
Scott would like to invite
those walking around the
lake and others to attend
an informal ecumenical
service on Wednesdays from
6 till 6:30 p.m. The church
would like to offer a public
service of healing for those
who have a health concern
for themselves or others.
The brief healing service
consists of healing prayers,
scripture and litany and
th6 opportunity to name
the folks for whom one is
concerned.


The Family is still the key have dinner together


Yes, parents are still
important and can provide
the best protection for
keeping kids safe and drug
free. Despite all the many
influences on our children's
behavior, parents and
the family can have the
most influence if we take
advantage of time together.
One opportunity for family
bonding is mealtime. In
recognition of that fact,


the Community Drug and
Alcohol Council, Inc. (CDAC)
is again promoting Florida's
Family:Day. Family Day will
be celebrated Monday, Sept.
24, and CDAC is encouraging
all of Northwest Florida to
be a part of this national
campaign to promote
healthy family relationships
through sharing meals and
other time together.
CDAC encourages


parents to use mealtime
and other family time to
listen to their children and
learn what is going on in
their lives. Communication
that occurs over mealtime
helps build and strengthen
the relationship between
parents and their children.
This time together can be
spent over a home cooked
meal, a favorite take-out
or at a restaurant. Time is


valuable and using mealtime
to establish relationships
with our children helps
support healthy lifestyles
despite busy schedules.
Parents can also encourage
healthy lifestyles free from
alcohol, tobacco, and other,
drugs by knowing where
their children are, setting
standards and rules for
behavior, maintaining open
lines of communication,


setting a good example and
surrounding their children
with positive role models.
Research from the
National CenteronAddiction
and Substance Abuse
at Columbia" University
indicated that children who
eat dinner more then twice
a week with their family are
less likely to smoke, drink
or use other drugs. A recent
poll conducted by Knowledge


Networks, Inc. confirmed
that when surveyed, youth
stated that one of the things
that made them happy was
spending time with their
family.

CRNAC residents visit Titanic exhibit


We Love You,
Your
Family


On August 15, Dorothy
- Young and Jean Kachin, resi-
dents from Chautauqua Re-
hab and Nursing Center,
along with staff from the ac-
tivities departments took a
trip to Panama City to view
"Titanic, the Artifact Exhibi-
tion."
Upon arriving at the mu-
seum, each member of the
group was issued a boarding
pass with the name and per-
sonal information of an ac-
tual Titanic passenger. They
got the chance to view a va-
riety of items retrieved from


the wreckage around the Ti-
tanic, The final part of the
exhibit was a display with
thp names of passengers and
crew divided into categories,
saved or lost. Young and
Kachin learned that each
person assigned to them had
survived the sinking of the
Titanic.
When asked about their ex-
perience at the exhibit,
Young and Kachin said that
it was amazing to see actual
items from the ship that has
been underwater for 90-plus
years.

Rates namedas one of

three assistant principals


at Eufaufa High School


As the 2007-2008 school
year began for Eufaula High
School (EHS), 856 students
saw a new yet familiar face
in the office of one of three
assistant principals. A gradu-
ate of Walton Senior High
School and Lurleen B.
Wallace Junior College and a
Troy University graduate
and Hall of Famer, Scott Ates
describes his new position at
EHS as "rewarding an op-
portunity to continue making
a difference in the lives of
today's youth." Steven
Hawkins, EHS principal,
said, "We at Eufaula High
are thrilled to have Scott
move into this new avenue of
his professional career. He is
highly respected among his
colleagues, self-motivated,
and an outstanding educator
of children. He will truly be
an asset to the faculty, staff,
and students of Eufaula
High School." Dr. Barry
Sadler, Eufaula City Schools


Superintendent said,"Scottie
and Amanda Ates have been
a great asset to our school
system. In his new role as as-
sistant principal, we feel
Scottie will be able to help
Eufaula High become even
more effective in helping all
of our students be success-
ful."
A 1990 Troy University
graduate, Ates. began his
teaching and coaching career
that same year at Dixie
Academy in Clio, AL. He re-
turned to Walton County in
1991 where he would spend
the next 14 years as a teacher
and coach. Ates said about
returning to Alabama, "Now,
I feel like I am home. It is a
very rewarding feeling to
work for a system that truly
cares for its students and
where decisions are made in
their best interest rather
than in the best interest of
votes."

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 20, 2007


On giving God the ragged end of life


By DR. ROBERT M. JAYE


Many times Christians
give to God only what they
don't need in living in this
world of sin. Remember the
words of Paul in Romans
12:1, "I beseech you there-
fore, brethren, by the mer-
cies of God, that ye present
your bodies a living sacri-
fice, holy, acceptable unto
God, which is your reason-
able service." Don't give
Him the ragged end of life.
Ragged end of religion
shows itself in the grudging
way many people give their
time and thought to the


cause of Christ. Their time
and thought are taken up by
other things. They do not love
Christ for who He is. They
think of worldly things,
money-making, fame-get-
ting, pleasure, and other
things. Then if any time is
left, that ragged end is given
to the Lord.
Ragged end religion shows
itself in the grudging way
many people give their
means and energies in the
service of Christ. Energy is
for business and work. It is
used in business as profes-


sionals, teachers, anything,
but practically none at all
into their profession as
Christians.
Ragged end religion shows
itself also through the ques-
tion of interest and affection.
The root of evil is largely in
the heart. You may not be
able to give much in worldly
things to the cause of Christ.
But everyone can give love.
Once a man came from trav-
eling on business. In his pos-
session were many valuable
things. His little girl put up
her hands to him and gave


him a hug and a kiss. These
two things meant more to
him than all the other
things he had received.
Why? Because she had
given him all she had her
love.
Let us all, perhaps as
ragged ended Christians,
become aware of our real
lack. It is a lack of love. Give
love and you will give time
and thought and energy
and money yourself. Giv-
ing these things, we will
give to the Lord our reason-
able service.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 20, 2007
MOVIE REVIEW


"The Brave One": Anything But Brave


By LEAH STRATMANN
A Jodie foster movie is al-
ways worth seeing because of
Jodie Foster. She doesn't
make all that many movies
and she's been in the busi-
ness long enough to mostly
tell the good ones from the
dogs. "The Brave One" is one
of the former.
Several reviewers have
likened this movie to "Death
Wish." I've never seen "Death
Wish," but the very title sug-
gests a high gore count. "The
Brave One," on the contrary,
has more or less quiet vio-
lence. The exception is the


graphic and brutal beating
given to Foster's character,
Erica Bain, and her fiance
early in the film, which
leaves her in a coma for
three weeks and the fiance
dead.
After her release from the
hospital, it takes some time
before Bain is able to leave
her New York City apart-
ment, suffering as she is
with post- traumatic stress.
As Bain slowly recovers
from the outer trappings of
the beating, she begins an
internal monologue about
who this new person she has


become might be. Her occu-
pation, an NPR-type radio
personality who roams the
streets of the Big Apple and
comments on her discoveries,
is unaccustomed to the fear
she is feeling.
Director Neil Jordan is not
afraid to use long periods of
silence, punctuated with mu-
sic which does not detract
from the silence.
Walking tentatively along
the street, the mundane ev-
eryday hustle and bustle of
the streets is frightening to
the petite blonde. Ultimately,
she walks into a gun store, no


doubt with the intention of
just feeling safer. She knows
nothing about guns, but you
can almost see her shoulders
straighten and her gait take
a firmer resolve once she has
the gun.
A routine trip to a corner
bodega erupts in violence
when a man comes in and
shoots his wife who is work-
ing behind the counter while
Bain is hunkered down look-
ing for the brand of beer she
wants to buy. She could have
probably just stayed in the
otherwise empty store, but
her cell phone chose this time
to' ring and the gunman


comes looking for her. He
finds more than he bar-
gained for when one out of
three shots she fires finds its
mark.
Still, a vigilante is not
born. The character is liter-
ally sick with disgust and
questioning even further
who she is becoming. In an
attempt to return to the life
she once knew, she inter-
views a homicide cop, quietly
and forcefully brought to life
by Terrance Howard.
Howard is a divorced fan
floundering in everything ex-
cept his work. He had


glimpsed the damage done to
her in the hospital, although
he is not the cop on her case.
He and his partner do, how-
ever, catch the vigilante case.
As the plot escalates, you
have a cop and a perpetrator
forging a tentative friendship.
The joy is in watching the
subtle and riveting excellence
of this pair and I recommend
it as a tutorial in the less-is-
more school of acting. The
ending may be a bit contrived,
but it is not out of the realm
of possibility either-any-
thing can happen in the big
city.


"Crimes of the Heart" at Okaloosa-Walton College


Beth Henley's award-win-
ning play, "Crimes of the
Heart," will be presented
Oct. 17, 18, 19, at 7:30 p.m.,
and on Oct. 20 at 2 p.m. at
the Mattie Kelly Fine & Per-
forming Arts Center, Sprint
Theater, Okaloosa-Walton
College (OWC) in Niceville.
Winner of the 1981


Pulitzer Prize and the New
York Drama Critics Circle
Award, "Crimes of the
Heart" centers on the three
Magrath sisters who have
gathered to await news of
the family patriarch, their
grandfather, who is living
out his last hours in the lo-
cal hospital.


Lenny, the oldest sister, is
unmarried at 30 and facing
diminishing marital pros-
pects. Meg, the middle sister,
who quickly outgrew their
hometown of Hazlehurst,
MS., is back after a failed
singing career on the West
Coast. Babe, the youngest, is
out on bail after having shot


her husband in the stomach.
Their troubles are high-
lighted by their priggish
cousin, Chick, and by the
awkward young lawyer who
tries to keep Babe out of jail
while unable not to fall in love
with her. In the end, the play
is the story of how its young


characters escape the past to
seize the future. The cast fea-
tures Alicia Leonard of De-
Funiak Springs as Lenny,
Rachel Hoskins of Fort Wal-
ton Beach as Meg, Joleigh
Jarvis of Niceville as Babe,
Nalia Bauer ofCrestview as
Chick, Bruce Culpepper of
DeFuniak Springs as Doc,


and Doug Bagnall of Eglin
AFB as Barnette.
Tickets are $15 adults, $10
youth, and are on' sale now.

box office telephone number
is 729-6000. Box office hours

God's

Army I
A friend was in front of
me coming out of church
one day, and the preacher
was standing at the door
as he always was to shake
hands. He grabbed my
friend by the hand and
pulled him aside. The Pas-
tor said to him, "You need
to join the Army of the
Lord!" My friend replied,
"I'm already in the Army
of the Lord, Pastor." So the
Pastor questioned, "Then
how come I don't see you
except at Christmas and
Easter?" He whispered
back, "I'm in the Secret
Service."


What really matters when it comes to

It has been a rough start
for the South Walton
Seahawks due to numerous
injuries. It didn't help when
visiting Bozeman came into
their home field and shut
them out, 30-0.
Both Kenzie Clemmons
and Patrick Morris were in-
jured in the Seahawks game
against Wewahitchka on
Sept. 7, but quarterback Billy
Burnett suffered a hip injury
in the first quarter, but con-
tinued to play.
Both teams were also high
on penalties and combined,
got close to 300 for the night.
Bozeman racked up 105 in
the second half alone.
South Walton totalled 95
yards rushing with
Clemmons leading South
Walton with 68 yards.
Burnett completed 8-of-19
passes for a total of 80 yards
on the night.
Bozeman struck first and
early against South Walton
and only allowed one impres-
sive Seahawk play when they
stopped Bozeman and forced
a punt. But on the next play,
the Seahawks,turned the ball
back over to the visiting
team. D.J. Striedal inter-
cepted the Bozeman ball but
they were unable to capital-
ize.


Bozeman racked up 252
yards on rushing and senior
quarterback Andrew
Brannon had 122 yards, in-
cluding a 53-yard touchdown
in the fourth quarter.
The Seahawks travel to
Baker this Friday.

SOUTH W\\ALTON'S
BRYANT.ADAMS picks up a
few more yards during the
Seahawks game against
Bozeman. The Bucks went on
to beat South \\'alton. 30-0.

High school football round-up


By PATRICK CASEY
Sophomore running back
Michael Pettus unofficially
carried 22 times for 169
yards and three touchdowns
as Navarre dropped
Pensacola Catholic to 0-3
with a 38-22 victory over the
Crusaders. The Crusaders
play their fourth straight
road game this week at West
Florida Tech.

Malcolm Ivory ran the
opening kickoff back 91
yards for a touchdown as
Blountstown (2-1) bounced


back from a rocky first half
to claim a 15-7 win over Port
St. Joe. Ivory added a 73-
yard run on Blountstown's
second play from scrimmage
in the third quarter to stretch
the lead to 12-7. A Cory Cox
interception in the fourth
quarter led to Jared King's
27-yard field goal to seal the
win for the Tigers. Chaz Byrd
ran for 93 yards on 21 car-
ries for Port St. Joe (0-2)..

Sneads put up more than
400 yards of total offense and
held a 47-0 lead at the half


as they thumped Franklin
County 57-0 in a District 1,
Class A contest. Franklin
County had little go right in
the game as they fell to 0-3
overall and 0-1 ii district
play.

West Gadsden played val-
iantly but fell at Crestview
27-7. The Panthers, who also
faced Niceville a couple of
weeks ago, will enjoy getting
into district play this week
with Sneeads after facing
three schools from larger
classifications the previous


three weeks and losing them
all.
Cottondale's Dezmond
Gray used his size to the tune
of three touchdown recep-
tions as the Hornets defeated
Wewahitchka 30-6.
Cottondale quarterback
Ronald Shores threw for 183
yards and four touchdowns
as Cottondale improved to 1-
2 while Wewa fell to 1-1.

Top 25 gets adjustments


By CHUCK HINSON
If you are a fan of college
football, then this past week-
end was certainly the time to
stay glued to the television.
With numerous upsets, poll
shifts and underdog victo-
ries, college football is begin-
ning to kick into high gear
going into its fourth week.
Florida, Florida State and
Miami, all brought victories
home this past weekend, No
brawls this year against Mi-
ami and Florida Interna-
tional.
The Seminoles had an-
other sluggish game and
were only able to round up
one touchdown against Colo-
rado. The remaining scores
came from the three field
goals by Gary Cismesia. The
16-6 victory over the Buffa-
loes almost made history for
the Seminoles, nearly giving
the Colorado team their first
shut-out on their home turf
in more than two decades.
Florida rolled all over their
first big SEC opponent with
little more than a sweat. The
No. 5 Gators and sophomore
quarterback Tim Tebow,
stomped the No. 22 Tennes-
see Vols in the SEC match-
up.
Tebow, once again the
shocker for not only Florida,
but the entire nation, racked.
up 299 yards and had two
touchdowns on 14-of-19 at-
tempts. He rushed for 67
yards and two touchdowns
on 18 carries.
But it was the other
Florida school s that has
been giving the top 10 teams
over the past two weeks the
most trouble. The University
of Central Florida and the
University of South Florida,
two other Florida teams that
are giving notice to the cen-
tral part of the state.
UCF fans have plenty to
celebrate this week as they
opened their new stadium,
and nearly brought the No.
6-ranked Texas Longhorns to
an abrupt and embarrassing
loss. A late fourth-quarter
touchdown gave Texas the
save while in the new Or-
lando stadium and kept their
hopes alive for a national
title.
Despite the Win, they did
drop in several positions in
all three polls.
The University of South
Florida kept its winning
streak alive and a 3-0 record
intact as they appeared in
the top 25 for the first time
in more than two decades.
They won their game this
past weekend, but it could
not have been more of a rush
than when they beat Auburn
at home on Sept. 8.
Speaking of Auburn, it just
went from bad to worse for
the Tigers as they fell at
home again to an unranked
team. Mississippi State and
head coach Sylvester Croom,
rocked and shocked fans in-
side Jordan-Hare Stadium
this past weekend when the
Bulldogs got their biggest
SEC win in the past three
seasons, with a 19-14 win
over Auburn.
It was the second loss in a
row at home for Tommy
Tuberville, as the Bulldogs
took advantage of several
miscues and mistakes by the
Tiger offense and rallied
early in the game and stood
defensively strong in the
fourth quarter to hold off an
advancing Tiger offense.
Auburn hopes to begin re-
deeming themselves at their
third straight home game
against New Mexico State on
Saturday.
Other schockers included
the big bluegrass party in


Kentucky as the SEC Wild- chew toy for a suffering and
cats dropped a bomb on the once No. 4 ranked Michigan.
No. 9 ranked Louisville and The Wolverines seemed to
slapped the Cardinals with a get their act together and

Commissioners



eye countywide



height limit


By DOTTY NIST
Walton County commis-
sioners plan to consider a
countywide building height
limit soon, possibly with ex-
ceptions for certain areas of
the county.
On Sept. 11 in regular ses-
sion, the Walton County
Board of County Commis-
sioners (BCC) unanimously
directed county planning
staff to develop a proposed
ordinance that would extend
the 50-foot height limit, al-
ready in place for new con-
struction south of the bay, to
the remainder of the county.
The ordinance will then be
reviewed in public session
with opportunity for com-
ment from the community.
County Commission
Chairman Ken Pridgen and
District 1 Commissioner
Stott Brannon commented
that they were most con-
cerned about the possibility
of high rise development on
the bay, bayous, and in
coastal areas.
District 4 Commissioner
Sara Comander noted that
she would not want to see a
high rise in a location such
as the shore of Lake Jackson,
either.
The commissioners' dis-
cussion on this topic came
soon after a media report
that a developer had applied
to construct a 20-plus-story


condominium on Jolly Bay
Road north of the bay in the
Freeport area.
Lois La-Seur, Walton
County planning manager,
confirmed that the planning
department is reviewing the
Jolly Bay Road proposal and
that it is scheduled for the
Walton County Planning
Commission meeting on Oc-
tober 11, when the planning
commissioners are expected
to make a recommendation
on the proposed develop-
ment.
La-Seur said the high rise
is proposed, along with an
RV park, on a 60-acre
bayfront parcel.
She added that it is the
planning director's opinion
that a high-rise condo-
minium would not be an ac-
ceptable land use for the par-
cel, which is classified as ru-
ral village.
Last year the BCC consid-
ered a previous proposed or-
dinance for a countywide
height limit which incorpo-
rated exceptions for agricul-
tural and industrial land
uses.
. That ordinance encourf-
tered both support and oppo-
sition. After the planning
commission voted six to one
to recommend against -its
adoption, in June 2006 the
BCC made a decision to table
it for further study.

JOE BURTON AND AL MURPHY of South Walton Turtle Watch measure and record
information on what they believe to be a 20-25 year-old loggerhed turtle. (Photo by Merle
Woodham)


Dead

turtle


washes


ashore

Residents of Sand Cliffs on
the Gulf in eastern Walton
Countywere alarmed to find
a dead loggerhead sea turtle
on their beach Saturday
morning. The turtle washed
ashore sometime Friday
night or before dawn on Sat-
urday.
Joe Burton and Al Murphy
of South Walton Turtle
Watch investigated the dead
sea creature andt reported to
Beach Breeze that they


thought the turtle was a log-
gerhead, weighing between
150-200 pounds and was es-
timated to be 20-25 years old.
The watchers gathered
flesh samples to send to state
labs to determine the. cause
of death.
Burton and Murphy no-
ticed boat prop markings on
the turtle's shell and said
that could have led to a vi-
rus which could also have
been problem. Additionally,
the watchers said red tide


might be a contributing fac-
tor.
In Walton County, several
dead turtles have been found
this year. Propeller wounds
and red tide are thought to
be the culprits in most cases.
The watchers said that sea
turtle strandings also hap-
pen when the turtles come
ashore to lay eggs and be-
come entrapped behind:
walkways and other struc-
tures.

By LEAH STRATMANN
The comprehensive plan,
which governs most every
facet of development in Wal-
ton County, has been on the
books for 14 years and one
required component of that
plan, a turtle lighting ordi-
nance, still remains unre-
solved.
As explained to the plan-
ning commission last week
by Billy McKee, the purpose
of the ordinance is to man-
age lighting in a way that
would aid nesting turtles and
other beach wildlife. As
stated in the ordinance, the
purpose, intent and applica-
bility of the ordinance is to
"protect threatened and en-
danriered sea turtles along
the Gulf of Mexico beaches in
Walton County. The ordi-
nance is intended to protect
nesting sea turtles and sea
turtle hatchlings from the
adverse effects of artificial
lighting, provide overall im-
provement in nesting habitat
degraded by artificial light-
ing, provide overall improve-
ment in nesting habitat de-
graded by artificial light, and
to increase successful nest-
ing activity and production of
hatchlings on the county's
beaches."
The ordinance also pro-
vides a time line for imple-


mentation with existing
lighting needing to come into
compliance by 2009. The or-
dinance allows for tinted
windows or blinds to be in-
stalled on those windows
that can be seen from the
beach. Fixtures which cannot
be brought into compliance
must be removed.

"We are afraid the
ordinance goes too
far. We have re-
viewed other ordi-
nances and this
would by far be the
strictest one. "-Attorney
Jerry Vorbeck

"Alys Beach is us-
ing gas lanterns
right now, but under
the ordinance these
lanterns would have
to go." Lee Ann Crane, a
certified lighting specialist

McKee explained that ap-
proximately 17 Florida coun-
ties have turtle lighting or-
dinances on the books now


and it is necessary for Wal-
ton County to adopt one as
the county will benefit by
protecting wildlife, and they
are environmentally friendly
as well.
When an ordinance is
adopted, the Florida Fish
and Wildlife S.ervice (FWS)
may hold those failing to'
comply accountable.
One of the facets of the
proposed ordinance prohibits
fireworks.
Representing Alys Beach,
attorney Jerry Vorbeck ad-
dressed the commissioners
saying he is afraid the ordi-
nance goes too far and is far
too restrictive. "This is a com-
plicated ordinance and the
county hap maot retained a
lighting expert, but Alys
Beach has,"' he said. "Lee
Ann Crane is a certified
lighting expert in the state of
Florida hired by Alys Beach.
We are afraid the ordinance
goes too far. We have re-
viewed other ordinances and
this would by far be the
strictest one."
Vorbeck said, "Lighting is'
an integral part of any devel-
opment. We were given a
draft ordinance several
weeks ago. We would like to
have some kind of workshop
on this before it is sent to the
Board of County Commis-


sioners (BCC)."
Lee Ann Crane, a certified
lighting expert from Stuart,
Fla., addressed the commis-
sioners. "I'm very impressed
with a number of communi-
ties in Walton County. Many
of them have done an excel-
lent job in. controlling light-
ing management by creating
low-level ambient lighting. I
have reviewed this ordinance
and think this is most strin-
gent I have seen in the state
of Florida, allowing for no
variances at all. It will put
95. percent of the existing
lighting in violation of the or-
dinance. Safety and security
requirements have mini-
mum lighting standards al-
lowing for a certain number
of foot-candles. Alys Beach is
using gas lanterns right now,
but under the ordinance
these lanterns would have to
go."
Crane said lights putting
out light too low to measure
would not pass the proposed
code because they are not di-
rectional and would there-
fore have to be removed.
Julie Hilton, a property
owner in Paradise by the
Sea, commented, "We called
the planning department at
least six times to find out
when the ordinance would be
brought before the board and


were told we would be called,
but we were not. I want to:
ask that a postponement be
considered on the ordinance
because it will have ramifi-
cations than cannot be imag-
ined: I shudder to imagine
how Walton County is going
to enforce this. The stan-
dards are very subjective;:
basically saying no light can-:
be visible from the6
beach. There is no objective
standard of foot-candles or
lumens. It is subject to the
whim of the code enforcer. It
conflicts with safety and se-
curity regulations," she con-
cluded.
Commissioner Tom Terrell
said, "We have already heard
enough evidence tonight to
suggest we should recom-
mend this item be tabled un-
til a workshop could be set
up. There are a lot of things
in the ordinance that are ex-
tremely constrictive and not
very clear, so I motion that
we table this until a public
workshop can be set up with
the planning commission
staff, so everyone is working
from the same document."
Another commissioner,
Tom Patton said, "I think a
lot of the problems with this
lie in semantics and the or-

THESE BEACH CHAIRS and a beach umbrella were re-
ported vandalized on Sept. 5 near the beachfront home of
Sherry Rayborn in Blue.Mountain Beach. The beach furni-
ture had apparently been slashed with a knife by an unknown
person or persons.
The Walton County Sheriff's Office estimated the damage
at a total of $300. Rayborn said that the chairs and umbrella
were her personal items maintained by Kingfish Beach Rent-
als. Rayborn, 'a 30-year area resident, wanted the public to
be aware of the incident so that they would keep their eyes
and ears open for such activity and report it to authorities.
Rayborn said she was shocked by the incident, so uncharac-
teristic of the quiet beach area that she has enjoyed for de-
cades. "We need to stop this now for the safety of people that
use this beach," she said. "This is not just a matter of van-
dalism and should not be ignored."

Beach trespassing -

case ends quietly


By JEFFREY POWELL
An Atlanta man who was
arrested for allegedly tres-
passing near The Retreat
property in Blue Mountain
Beach has made restitution
to the state and the case has
been closed.
On July 5, according to a
Walton County Sheriffs re-
port, beachgoer Eduardo
Gonzalez, 48, was arrested
following a complaint by a
security officer working for
The Retreat that Gonzalez
was trespassing on the pri-
vate property of the
beachfront development.
According to the com-
plaint filed by the security
officer, Gonzalez was deter-
mined not to be staying at
the facility. Law enforcement
was called because he would
not move the few feet to the
wet sand. After having been
asked to move, Gonzalez re-
fused and reportedly stated
that authorities would have
to arrest him before he would
move.


According to the report
filed by the arresting officer,
Dep. David Jordan, Gonzalez
was informed that the pub-
lic beach began at the wet
sand area of the beach and
that he was located on pri-
vate property.
Gonzalez was then ar-
rested for alleged violation of
Florida Statute 810.09, tres-
passing after warning, trans-
ported to the Walton County
Jail and released on bond.
The Retreat is located just
west of a public beach access
on the adjacent Inn at Blue
Mountain Beach property.
According to Walton
County Clerk of Court
records Gonzalez and his at-
torney Martin W. Lester en-
tered into a deferred prosecu-
tion agreement on Aug. 31,
which states that Gonzalez
must have no additional
charges for the next three
months and pay $185 in
court costs. If these condi-
tions are met, the state will
file no prosecution.

SWFD sets final



budget hearing


By JEFFREY POWELL
"We are pleased to present
a budget that is reasonable
and demonstrates good stew-
ardship of taxpayer dollars
and balances the require-
ments of the South Walton
Fire District (SWFD) with
the cost to support our ef-
forts," said SWFD Fire Chief
/Administrator Rick Talbert.
The SWFD's tentative
budget and millage rate for


the new fiscal year were ap-
proved at the organizations
first budget hearing on Sept.
12.
As discussed at the
SWFD's-August workshop,
the proposed village rate for
the new fiscal year is 0.70
mills as compared with 0.80
mills, the current year rate.
Next years rate is lower
than the state tax reform
mandate current rollback


rate of 0.77.
The SWFD plans to re-
duce spending to slightly less
than $11.6 million for the
new fiscal year as compared
with $13.3 million for the
current year.
The final budget hearing,
which is open to public atten-
dance, is set for 5:05 p.m. on
Sept. 26 at the district head-
quarters 911 N. CR-393 in
Santa Rosa Beach.


Washing Machines


A washing machine is the second largest w ater user in
your home, w% ith toilets being first. A traditional wash-
ing machine uses approximately 41 gallons per load.
The best \\way to lower this usage is to buy a high
efficiency washing machine. These machines use 35-
50% less water and 50% less energy per load. This will
save you mone1 on both your water and energy bills.


No matter what kind of washing machine you have,
here are some basic tips that can reduce water use
for washing clothes:

* Operate the washer with full loads only even if the
machine has an adjustable load setting. A full load
is the most efficient way to wash clothes.


If N our \ asher has a variable water volume
setting, select the minimum amount required
per load.


Pre-treat .stains to a\oid re washing .


Use the shortest wash cycle for lightly soiled loads.


Check \ our \\ thing machine hoses regularly
for cracks that could result in leaks.

portant document on Ameri-

S An excerpt from Rep.
Feeney's speech to the Ameri-
can Legislative Exchange
* Council on the Constitution:
- "In 1787, at the United
States Constitutional Con-
* vention, our founders laid out
a miraculous blueprint en-
titled the Constitution ofthe
United States. It dealt with
some basic premises: the
separation of powers and


constrained federal powers.
Remember that the powers
of the federal. government
were given to them by the
people. Jefferson had pointed
out in the Declaration of In-
dependence that it is God,
our creator, that gives indi-
vidual men and women their
rights. And no government
can take those rights away.
"We also have a republican
form of government. The
principle of federalism em-
powers individuals in com-
munities and in states to
make decisions about mat-
ters that are most important
in their lives. Remember that
our United States Constitu-
tion fundamentally limits the
power of the government.
Read, for example, the Bill of
Rights and the First Amend-
ment," said Feeney.


conducted in a fun after-
school environment using
"Homework Helpers" -
adults or older students who
supervise completion of the
homework.
In addition, these Club
staff and volunteers offer
many activities to stimulate
Club members' interest in
learning. One such program
is the Smart Way Reading
program we are running in
,the elementary school pro-
grams. This program is a
comprehensive program for
beginning and remedial
readers that has a simple
step by step procedure that
is easy to use and apply. Vol-
unteers and program staff
work one-on-one or in small


groups to focus the learning
where the child's specific
needs lay.

These programs offer tips
for establishing essential
communication with teach-
ers and parents.
The long-term goal is to in-
still in youth a lifelong love
of learning.
To become a "Homework
Helper," call Rita Cummins
at (850) 862-1332, or visit our
website at www.bgcec.com to
complete a volunteer applica-
tion.

All volunteers must pass a

and take part in a mandatory

ficed and died to establish
the freedoms guaranteed by
the Constitution of the
United States of America.

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

tion week chairperson, Choc-
tawhatchee Bay Chapter,
