Commercial-residential project


Freeport gives


go-ahead to


development


By BEN GRAFTON
At the Freeport City
Council meeting of Sept. 27,
City Planner Latilda
Henninger introduced a pro-
posal by Portofino for con-
struction of a mixed commer-
cial/residential development
on 3.6 acres just west of City
Hall. The city has never re-
ceived this type of request
before, but the property is
zoned commercial and this
type of use is permitted. The
project calls for construction
iof 15,000 square feet of office/
retail space with 30 rental
apartments above and a
fenced 0.4 acre children's


playground.
The resulting structure's
height, 42 feet, will be inside
of the city specification.. The
developer's plans call for
mixed-use parking and City
Engineer Charles Peters has
reported he believes the
parking proposal is all right.
The Planning Board has rec-
ommended approval of the
project. The city will approve
a parking variance, clearing
the project to proceed.

MAMIE'S THANKS THE PUBLIC for 47years, as DeFu-
niak Springs landmark closes temporarily.



Mam" ies: It


ain't over yet
ain," ovr e


By BRUCE COLLIER
Natalie Miller, owner and
manager of DeFuniak
Springs landmark Mamie's
Restaurant, has. closed the
place. Many residents were
surprised to see the sign
posted last Tuesday, thank-
ing the public for 47 years of
patronage. In that time,
Mamie's had evolved into a
meeting place for politicians,
business people, and tourists
to gather and exchange both
fact and fiction about the lo-
cal and national scene.
Though the restaurant has
closed its doors, Miller said
this is not the end of
Mamie's.
"I just signed a lease with
Roger and Geraldine Fannin,
for a year. They're going to
run the place as Mamie's."At
the end of that time, said
Miller, she will have an op-


tion to resume control of the
restaurant. Miller's reasons
for closing were both health-
and finance-related.
"Last year I lost a baby
because I was working 50 to
60 hours a week at the res-
taurant." That, and Miller's
job with the Holmes County
Sheriff's Office, had her
working upwards of 90 hours
a week. The physical strain,
as well as the costs of utility
bills, convinced Miller she
had to take some time off.
Hard work is apparently a
family tradition.
"My grandmother opened
this place up in 1960.with
great pride and determina-
tion to become a self-suffi-
cient businesswoman," said
Miller. "She gave her heart
and soul to it. She worked

Home Grown


Legends


Pappy McCormick

Potter Brown

Songs of the Home Grown Legends is the story of two
completely different men with two completely different stories
held together by the common thread of their undying love for
music. Neal "Pappy" McCormick (1909-1998) and Dwight
"Potter" Brown (1944-1999) were instrumental in the lives and
careers of hundreds of musicians. Both men are held so dearly
in the memories of so many.

A show for the entire family, Songs of the Home Grown Legends
is directed by Jeremiah Campbell and features something for
everyone. From light-hearted children's songs to good-time
dance numbers, this locally written and produced show is sure
to entertain. Live music and some of the finest talent our
community has to offer are certain to make this year's all new
Grit & Grace performance the best ever.

Editor's Comment


A rose is a rose?

By RON KELLEY

I see that a Florida circuit court has ruled that the pro-
posed language for the new property-tax amendment is
confusing.
The court should have looked at the amendment itself.
That's confusing, too, and I think it's going to be full .of
"unintended" consequences that will deliver some miniscule
short-term relief for a small percentage of citizens, while
ensuring that the long term effect will result in more money
for the state. What happens in Vegas...also happens in Tal-
lahassee. In both places, the odds always favor the house
(or House).
As best I can tell so far, the plan will mostly help people
who are simply flipping properties for profit. However, for
homesteaders, it looks like the news is not very good at all.
The problem for the court was that the proposed wording
on the ballot does not alert the voters about the elimina-
tion of the constitutional protections on homestead exemp-
tions. However, some state legislators are fighting it and
have already appealed the judge's order.
Why would Rubio, Sansom & Company object to truth
in advertising? Republican Senator Mike Bennett an-
swered the question. "It would never pass. People (legisla-
tors) aren't going to give up on a sure thing." Thus, if the
state can keep the fuzzy wording, the measure will pass.
Why? Because it says "tax cut." Hey, how could anyone
be against a tax cut? The answer to that question is "When
'it's not really a tax cut. When it's a wolf in sheep's clothing.
When it does more harm for more people than good."
That's why the wording on the ballot is so important. If
people knew they could actually lose the current protec-
tions on their homestead exemptions and be forced to pay
more than they pay now, the amendment wouldn't have a
chance.
The wording is vital. We already know that. I mean, how
else can we explain having that pregnant pig pre-natal
protection plan in our state constitution? Or applying the
class-size amendment to high schools without one, single
independent study suggesting that it would have any posi-
tive effect on high school-age students. Or the glorious
Patriot Act? How could something with such a high-minded
title be so repulsive and evil?
Because most people still think that a thing's name ac-
curately describes that thing. In some cases, it does, thank-
fully. However, in politics, there are people that think that
if they re-name the Putrid Limburger Cheese Ac t and call
it the Lovely Sweet-Smelling Rose Act instead, then people
will buy it enthusiastically. Sadly, in too many cases, they
are absolutely correct.
Old Billy was right, "A rose, by any other name, would
smell as sweet," but Limburger cheese will always stink.
So when it comes time to vote on this "Lovely Sweet-Smell-
ing" property-tax amendment, you might want to make sure
it passes the smell-test..

Letters to the Editor
Editor:
So a celebration is declared for the birth of the U.S. Consti-
tution? Wouldn't a funeral be more apt? The federal govern-
ment has made a joke out of the Constitution. That has gone
on for years but has acclearated over time. All parties have
been involved. Democratic and Republican administrations
have practiced this hypocrisy. If the Constitution doesn't fit
what those in power want to do, it is simply ignored.
If you read a copy of the Constitution, you will notice that
the power to declare war is given, solely to Congress. WWII
was the last one declared by Congress when President
Roosevelt asked Congress to declare war on Japan after Pearl
Harbor was bombed. Since then presidents and allies in his
party have led the country into war without a Constitution-
ally -required Congressional declaration. Obviously, that is vio-
lating constitutional law. What did Congress do? Nothing sub-
stantial, which is it usual reaction. Presidents are and have
been assuming massive powers while Congress is becoming a
group of "has-beens."
Constitutional law is the highest in the U.S. No law, by what-
ever body, can supercede it, nor can it be lawfully ignored. So,
wouldn't a funeral be more appropriate than a celebration?
Sincerely,
Charles F. Adams
Laurel Hill, FL.

ere she could be ter the home to save her cat saying, "my poppy is burning."
do you want me The cat, Sunshine, was saved by the fire department and,
the officer what after several weeks of treatment for smoke inhalation, is
in a very dark doing well.
suggested that I cannot say enough about the fire department's rapid
ild suggest that response and effort, saving much property and the cat. Sun-
shine
overloaded and I am sure our Lord also had a ierctiul hand in this, as
do their jobs or well. Had Officer Hicks been on the scene five minutes
m for following sooner, the smoke may not have been evident; five minutes
n sad shape. It later and the whole house would have been completely gone

Knowing the neighborhood, understand the interactions
R.H. Gottleib of citizens an acting on police instinct and training, brought
Arygle, FL. what would have otherwise been a complete disaster, with
a loss of life and total destruction of property, to a con-
tained fire with limited damage.
Heartfelt thanks to the DFSPD and to Officers Hicks. As
tears of appreciation wellup in my eyes as I write this, I
say thank-you, sir, and may God bless s you-and protect you
in your work as you serve and protect the city and citizens
of DFS.
.. I also appreciate and wish to mention officers Rodney
Boblitt and John Powers for their ability to moderate.
May God bless all of you who serve and protect. I wish to
also express my appreciation to Lt. Bill Chapman, who has
handled the entire matter with wisdom, tenderness and
steady leadership. I cannot express fully my appreciation
for the wisdom and sensitivity r'was given when I came to
DFS to see my property after the fire.
-You are a remarkable police and fire department and
community, from my experience. Thank you all so very much.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, OCTOBER 4, 2007


FREEPOR
30-year service award from
the Florida League of Cities
at its November meeting.
Also at the meeting was
Freeport resident Doris Coo-
per, who complained to the
Council that road construc-
tion by the developer at the
entrance to Cross Creek Es-
tates on U.S. 331 North is
well behind the promised
June completion schedule
and that the entrance road
is very muddy. She also said
that there are no convenient
cross-overs that allow resi-
dents to turn into their prop-
erties without making a de-
tour to the west, then turn-
ing and coming back to their
homes. Another resident
complained that the
developer's crews had in-
stalled a fire hydrant at a lo-
cation that prevents her
from opening the gate
through her fence.
Cross Creek development
partner, Bob Brown, said he
wanted to assure the Coun-
cil that he has tried to do the
work as approved and that
he had followed the advice of
the project engineers.
City Councilwoman Jean
Arrant took sharp exception
to Brown's statement. Marse
said he had listened to
enough complaints from resi-
dents about these problems
and expected the developer
to make sure he doesn't in-
terfere with the neighbors'
ingress and egress from their
properties. Mark Martin
suggested that the develop-
ment order be modified to
include changes discussed.
The developer promised to
correct these problems.
In other agenda items,
Henninger presented the fi-
nal "as built" plat for Free-
port Townhomes and, there
being no outstanding issues,
the Council accepted the plat
as presented.
Henninger then pre-
sented final plats for the
Thurman Industrial Plaza,
and for Hammock Bay Pods
11, 13, 14 and 23. In view of
minor engineering issues



' ..: : .


FROM FRONT


outstanding for all of these
developments, the Council
accepted the plats subject to
a report from Freeport's en-
gineering service that the is-
sues have been corrected.
A rezoning request was
submitted by Lewis Develop-
ment for 2.48 acres on the
east side of North Jackson
Street. The developer pro-
poses building town homes
on the property, which is cur-
rently zoned C-1, but it is
bordered on three sides by
properties zoned R-3, which
allows construction of town
homes. The developer re-
quests that the property be
re-zoned R-3. The Council ap-
proved advertising and the
first reading on Oct. 25 of an
enabling ordinance to make
this change. The second read-
ing is planned for November.
The city has adopted Or-
dinance 07-13, which places
time limits on progress by de-
velopers who have been is-
sued development orders.
Engineer Tony Peters ad-
vised the Council that the Ac-
tivity Center project is ready
to be sent out for bids. The
city will cover general liabil-
ity insurance and the con-
tractor awarded the work
will provide workman's com-
pensation insurance. Bids
will be accepted on Nov. 18.
The Council approved a
proposal made by Peters for
construction of practice base-.
ball fields on available land
near the sewage treatment
plant. Fill dirt for the project
has been offered by developer
Jay Odom at Hammock Bay.
Peters said bids on the sewer
treatment plant up-grade
will be taken on Nov. 8, and
reported that the master lift
station is now running on au-
tomatic.
Developer Jay Odom re-
ported the Council that the
City Park at Hammock Bay
is well under construction.
Lighting equipment is com-
ing in and the fields are be-
ing sodded. The fields will be
ready for play in the spring
of 2008.

SOUGHTBY THE LAW is William J. Mitchell, 46, a reg-
istered sexual offender.






RUNAWAY FROM FRONT


hours later.
Frank's friends reportedly
told investigators that she
had told them she was going
to run away "for love."
Mitchell, registered in
Florida as a sexual offender,
has some 14 prior arrests on
charges including burglary,
aggravated assault with a
weapon, grand larceny, bomb
threats, extortion and of-
fense or offer of lewdness and
lewd and lascivious behavior.
Mitchell is described as a
white male, 46, with brown
hair and blue eyes, 5 feet 10
inches tall, weighing 158
pounds. He has several tat-
toos on his arms and fingers,


and was last seen driving a
black 2000 Chevrolet Lu-
mina, tag number G02 5EL.
DeFuniak Springs City
Marshal Mike Adkinson said
that Frank's parents have
been notified. Adkinson has
dispatched additional officers
to protect area schools.
A new law in Florida has
just taken effect that requires
sexual offenders to register e-
mail and instant message
handles with authorities.
This information will be
shared with online sites such
as Myspace.com, some of
which have become favorite
haunts for predators.

rently, HQM and its affiliates

and assisted-living facilities
throughout the eastern
United States.
According to CRNC offi-
cials, the goal of the chap-
laincy program is a holistic
one optimizing patient care
in an environment that pro-
vides clinical and therapeu-
tic services as well as offer-


ing spiritual support to en-
hance the overall well-being
of the resident. Here is a
chance for local churches and
communities to reach out,
care for, and share in the cul-
tural richness of an older
adult population.
The chaplain assumed du-
ties earlier this year. Jon

pointed to this position.
Kinsey has a 20-year history
of ministry in local churches
and is a licensed mental
health counselor in private
practice for the last 12 years.
Kinsey plans to coordinate
community church and lay
ministry in the center and
serve as a liaison between
the residents and the local
churches. The chaplain will
minister not only to the resi-
dents and the local churches
but to staff and family mem-
bers as well. This is a nonde-
nominational ministry,
where all belief systems are
respected.
One of the programs being
introduced is the Adopt-A-
Soul program. This is an op-


portunity for the local
churches and lay community
to become involved in a
CRNC resident's life-in a sig-
nificant way. CRNC will co-
ordinate the matching of
residents to community vol-
unteers. Becoming involved


is simple. Call the chaplain
and express an interest, be-
come matched with a resi-
dent, and visit the resident
on a regular basis to talk,
pray, and minister to them.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, OCTOBER 4, 2007

Still celebrating Walton County's heritage


The Walton County Heri-
tage Museum's September
Second Saturday Show &
Tell program with Julia
Cadenhead was a success,
according to Heritage Mu-
seum Director Diane Merkel.
"Julia was very generous to
the Museum. She gave us
some of her research materi-
als and forms that we can use
for genealogy purposes. In
addition, we have copies of
her book, So Great a Cloud
of Witnesses: A Cadenhead
Family History, in our gift
shop, and a portion of each
sale will be donated to the
Museum. As a result of her
visit, we may form a geneal-
ogy club."

On Saturday, October 6,
from 10 a.m. noon, there
will be a Walton County Ge-
nealogy organizational meet-
ing. The Museum currently
has a research center that is
in its infancy. Merkel said,
"In order to assist people
with their research, we are
hoping to start a genealogy
club. If you or your family
and friends have an interest
in family research, please at-
tend our organizational
meeting this Saturday. You
do not need to have Walton
County ancestors to join this
group, and we would love to
hear your thoughts and
ideas."
One of the most popular


Vr,


Museum programs is the
Second Saturday Show &
Tell, which is held each
month and features experts
speaking on a variety of top-
ics. On Saturday, Oct. 13,
from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m., the
topic will be model
railroading, featuring guest
speaker Chris Meyer..Chris
will explain all that is in-
volved in this hobby, from the
concept of a layout through
its completion. "Those at-
tending may enjoy showing
items from their collections
and telling about their expe-
riences with the hobby. The
Museum will also determine
whether there is enough in-
terest to start a model rail-
roading club in Walton
County," said Merkel.
The Museum also offers
individuals a chance to leave
their mark on history and
support preservation efforts,
as well as a way to honor
family and friends for years
to come with the placement
of their names on stepping
stones. Each stone is 12-
inches square and may be en-
graved with up to four lines
of 12 letters each for a $100
donation to the Museum. The
squares adorn the pathway
between the Museum and
the historic red caboose on
display on Circle Drive in De-
Funiak Springs. The Mu-
seum is temporarily on a
shortened schedule -


Wednesday and Saturday af-
ternoons from 1-4 p.m., but
Merkel can be reached at
(850) 951-2127 or by e-mail
waltoncountyheritage@cox.net.
Merkel also said the mu-
seum is planning two new
books. "A book of our history
in photographs is in the de-
velopment stage, and we
very much need photographs
showing the people, places,
and events of the greater
DeFuniak Springs area. All
contributors will be given
credits for their photographs.
We will make digital scans of
the photographs so you do
not have to let them out of
your possession. We. can
come to your home or office
with a laptop and scanner, or
you can bring the photo-
graphs to the Museum for
scanning," she said. "We are
also working on a cookbook
as a companion to the photo-
graphs book. We very much
need recipes that have
been used in the kitchens of
the greater DeFuniak
Springs area. All contribu-
tors will be given credits for
their recipes."

Merkel also expressed
thanks to all of the Walton
County Heritage Associat-
ion members and others who
have shared their time and
treasures this month and to
the Chautauqua Cyber Club
(CCC) for their generous do-


Holmes County man dies in fire


By TAYLOR SHUTT
WMBB-TV13
On Sept. 30, just after 6
a.m. the Holmes County
Sheriff's Department re-
ceived a report of a residen-
tial structure fire at 2255
Boat Ramp Road in the
Gritney Community. Several
volunteer fire departments,
including Gritney, Bonifay


and Westville, along with
Holmes County EMS person-
nel, responded to the fire
with reports of possible en-
trapment.
Once the fire was brought
under control, the body of
Brian Randal Freeman, 30,
was located inside the resi-
dence. The State Fire
Marshal's Office andl4th Ju-


dicial Circuit Medical
Examiner's Office responded
to the scene at the request of
sheriff's department investi-
gators.
The cause of the fire is still
under investigation by these
agencies. However,'foul play
is not suspected at this
time. Freeman had lived at
the residence for the past few
years.


If you have ever had an abortion, you probably feel
'uL very much alone with the memories.

Florida Department of Health's Top 3 Reasons To Get Your Flu Vaccine
1. Prevents influenza-related death. Each year over 36,000 people in the U.S. die because of
the flu most are 65 or older. More people die from flue than from any other vaccine-pre-
ventable disease.
2. Prevents severe illness. In the U.S. influenza puts about 200,000 people in the hospital
each year. Children younger than 2 years old are as likely to be hospitalized as adults who
are 65 or older.
3. Protects other people. You should get vaccinated if you live with or care for others who are
at high risk of complications from the flu. Getting a flu vaccination yourself can help protect
your family members, including seniors and young children.
For more information on Flu or to schedule an appointment, please call the Main Branch in
DeFuniak Springs at (850) 892-8015 or the Coastal Branch location at (850) 267-3598.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, OCTOBER 4, 2007


Art conquers all


By ROBIN NEWTON
If someone had told her
years ago, when she was in
charge of the art department
at Six Flags in Georgia, that
one day she would be work-
ing in the small town of De-
Funiak Springs, Florida,
Deborah Lee White would
probably have shrugged it off
with a casual, "Yeah, sure."
Had they gone on to tell her
an automobile accident
would play a major role in
her life, she would have eyed
them cautiously. Add her in-
volvement with the Brain
Disorder Support Founda-
tion to the mix, and she
would have undoubtedly dis-
missed them entirely.
However, that is exactly
what happened. From 1975-
1985, White was responsible
for everything connected
with art at Six Flags in Geor-
gia. From airbrushed T-
shirts and hand-carved signs
to portraits and caricatures,
White was happily working


in the career field of her
dreams art. Fifty people
were directly under her su-
pervision.
One day in 1984, White's
life would change forever. On
a trip to Marietta to pick up
art supplies for work, her car
stalled at an intersection and
in an instant the car was hit
not once, but twice, from op-
posite directions. The first
impact caused a head
trauma on one side and the
second impact injured the
opposite side of her brain.
White regretfully admits to
not wearing a seatbelt.
The injuries put White
into a full coma for hours and
a semi-coma for three
months. "I lost 65 percent of
my brain cells, but luckily
.humans only use 20 percent,
of their brain anyway," she
says with a grin. The loss was
on the left side of White's
brain; the right side, the cre-
ative side, was not compro-
mised.

Once the immediate dan-
ger had passed, White was
moved to a head trauma re-
covery center where she be-
gan to relearn everything
from reading and writing to
cooking and walking. She en-
tered the facility in a wheel-
chair and progressed to
crutches and then a cane.
She has not needed a cane
for the past five years but
admits to using one in crowd
"so others will know I cannot
get out of their way."
After her recovery, White
.enrolled in the Art Institute
of Atlanta Visual Communi-
cations program. She enjoys
working in many forms of
media and has now put her
talent to work for the Brain
Disorder Support Founda-
tion. She has created an
artist's rendition of the
Friendship House to be built
on Juniper Lake Road. The
house will provide support in
the form of education for all
interested as well as a place
for caregivers and clients to
receive much needed assis-
tance.
For the caregivers, it will
be a place to bring their cli-
ent or loved one and leave
them for a short time in or-
der to take care of errands
and appointments. For the
client, it will be a safe haven
for a few hours of day care,
staffed by professional em-
ployees, trained in the area
of brain disorder treatment
and recovery.
When White first returned
home, she went through her
house and noticed a closet
full of purple clothes. "I must
like purple," she decided.
And everywhere she looked
in her house were clowns. "I
must like clowns, too," she
thought.
After the injury, White


moved in with her mother in
Chipley. There, in the tiny
community of Sunny Hills,
she taught art classes. In the
summer she worked for
WINGS summer school pro-
gram and taught 10 to 40
children at one time.
She has painted murals in
restaurants and churches
around Chipley. White also
illustrated the Ebro Folk
Tales booklet. Today, White
is actively pursuing her tal-
ent. She now has trouble
with gross motor skills below
the waist. Walking is a con-
scientious movement rather
than one that comes natu-
rally. She deals with pain on
a daily basis, but claims, "I'm
used to it." One remaining
disability is her short-term
memory loss. She has diffi-
culty retaining her memory
from one day to the next. "In
some ways, it is not bad at
all. The little petty stuff does
not carry over to the next day
- the useless information just
disappears," she says. The
injury also caused her to
haveno control over her emo-
tions.
She and her husband Bob,
whom she met and married
in 2001, live inArgyle, where
he has created an art studio
for her. The studio is filled
with her art paintings, cop-
per etchings, beaded items,
and wooden signs.
White will have a booth at
the Countryside Festival on
Oct. 6. She will be sketching
caricatures, quick sketches
and portraits. One of the
large prizes for the raffle will
be a family portrait painted
by White. She is also creat-
ing the signs for the booths
and banners for the festival.
Her rendering of the soon-to-
be-built Friendship House
will be on display during the
festival.

"Life is so much better
now," claims White, "I look
for blessings instead of
faults."


Tax Collector moves

back to courthouse


The Walton County Tax
Collector's main office in De-
Funiak Springs will relocate
to the newly-remodeled
county courthouse on Friday,
October 5. The DeFuniak
Springs office will be closed
that day to move equipment
and supplies.
"Our DeFuniak Springs
office will be closed on Friday
to allow us adequate time to
get the new office operational
for Monday morning," said
Rhonda Skipper, Walton
County tax collector. "Those
needing to transact business
can go to our south Walton
office at the South Walton
Courthouse Annex or utilize
the online services at
www.waltontaxcollecthr.com."
Phones lines will be dis-
connected on Friday for rein-


stallation at the new loca-
tion. Customers needing to
contact the office that day
can call (850) 267-3001.

cation, the Walton County
Tax Collector's Office will
also have new hours. Office
hours at the courthouse will
be Monday through Friday, 8
a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
"In order to ensure the se-
curity at the courthouse, it
was necessary for us to adopt
the courthouse hours," said
Skipper. "We encourage indi-
viduals who cannot make it
into the office during normal
business hours to take ad-
vantage of the services avail-
able on our website."

For more information, call
(850) 892-8121.

seven days a week and long
hours every day." Miller's
mother, Linda Motley, "fol-
lowed in her footsteps" and
continued the Mamie's tradi-
tion until her death from can-
cer.
Miller herself started
early in the family business.
"I remember when I first
'started working there, I was
seven years old. I would beg
Momma, 'Please let me help,
I promise I won't be in the
way.'" Miller's first task was
learning to run the cash reg-
ister. "I sat on a stool so I
could reach it." The joy of
earning cash every day had
its effect. "I was so excited. I
was hooked from then on. I
worked every weekend, ev-
ery holiday, and every school
break."
As Miller grew, she took on
more responsibilities, includ-
ing learning the art of ma-
. neuvering through swinging
doors. "Those swinging doors
were so tricky. I would try to
dodge them, but it seemed
that the more I tried to dodge
them, the more I would run
into the girls coming out of
them, with arms full of
plates. That would make the
waitresses and Mom so mad
at me."
Mamie's has always been
famous as an information
source, but Miller got special
treatment. "Mom never let
anything stay at home. She
always told everybody, no
matter if it was me fouling
out of a ball game, hitting a
home run, changing my
grades, going to a party I had
no business being at, or hit-

Miller will not be running
things at Mamie's, at least
"for the time being," but she
is still busy at her job, and
getting ready "to bring our


new little one into the world.
"I have made great friends

Walton Heritage second Saturday

Show & Tell "Model Railroading"


For 90 years, railroads
played a vital role in the his-
tory and development of Wal-
ton County. They were an
economic and practical ne-
cessity because they brought
passengers to the annual
Florida Chautauqua Winter
Assembly and hauled timber
from the sawmills. While
their impact upon our daily
lives has diminished, rail-
roads still fascinate people of
all ages, and model railroad-
ing has long been one of
America's favorite hobbies.
Everyone interested in
HO-scale model railroading
is invited to meet at the Wal-
ton County Heritage Mu-
seum on Saturday, Oct. 13,
2:30-3:30 p.m., for the second
Saturday Show & Tell pro-
gram. Guest speaker Chris
Meyer will explain all that is
involved in this fun hobby,
from the concept of a layout
through its completion.
Those attending may enjoy
showing items from their col-
lections and telling about
their experiences with this
hobby They will also deter-
mine whether there is
enough interest to start a
model railroading club in
Walton County.
Second Saturday Show &
Tell is a monthly program at
the museum that features
topics about the history of
Walton County. Admission is
free, and the content is ap-
propriate for all age groups.
The Walton County Heri-
tage Museum is located at
1140 Circle Drive in the his-
toric district of DeFuniak
Springs, next to the red ca-


boose, formation or visit www.

Wild horses can't drag artist away from his passion


By CHRIS MANSON
Out on Hwy. 2 West on
a Friday afternoon, Roger
Cochran was hard at work.
The Caryville resident was
in the process of converting a
big oak tree into a sculpture
of horses by means of a chain
saw and his woodcarving
talent.
Roger, who said he was
"constantly working,"
planned to have the tree
completed by the end of this
week.
The process starts with
a chain saw, followed by
sanding, more sawing, and
refinements with a mallet
and chisel. This particular
client, the owner of a horse
farm, told Roger to "carve
whatever you see."
Roger has been at this for
25 years. A lifelong artist,
his grandmother kept all
of his paintings dating
back to first-grade. He is
also a published poet and
songwriter. He dabbles in
glassblowing and pottery.
Roger is carving is a 14-
foot oak tree that the property
owner said was damaged by
hurricanes a few years back.
Roger said the finished work
would be a contemporary
type of collage of five horse
heads of different sizes and'
variations.
He has carved art all over
the country, notably in the
Rocky Mountains Where,
Roger said, "they wanted


to kidnap me. They didn't
want me to leave."
Roger and his wife,
Patti, relocated from North
Carolina in 1997, deciding
that the beach and fishing
would better suit them than
cold weather and snow.
Roger called his son a
superior artist. but noted
that the young man is
"scared of the chain saw."
The artist relies on word-
of-mouth for work. He was
not really sure how his
current client found out
about him, although his
art has been featured in
publications like Log Home
Living.
In addition to horses,
Roger has carved likenesses
of famous people like Elvis
Presley, Santa Claus,
Richard Petty, and Dale
Earnhardt. "People like
race car drivers," he said.
"NASCAR fans will buy
anything."
Patti said the couple has
plenty of art on display
in front of their home in
Caryville, notably some
exquisitely rendered totem
poles recast as mermaids
and bears. Roger's art has
also been showcased and
sold at Elmore's Landing on
Hwy. 331 S.
"I thank God for-this gift,"
Roger said, and then he was
back to buzzing away at that
big old oak tree.

>! Richardsons celebrate
50th wedding anniversary













X. ,



Mr. and Mrs. Alvin Richardson
celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary
on August 12, 2007
at the Shoal River Baptist Church.
Following the renewal of their vows,
a reception was enjoyed by all who attended.
Mr. and Mrs. Richardson wish to thank all
of their friends and family for making this a
very special day.


We would like to personally thank each and every
member of the Walton County administration, includ-
ing the Walton County Commissioners; our local me-
dia, and numerous loving supporters. We have been gra-
ciously blessed and honored on behalf of our loved one.
First, we would like thank everyone for the love, prayers,
and support we have received since losing Don, second
for the Resolution declaring August 14, 2007 as Don
Crim day, and most rewarding the dedication of the
handicapped accessible beach access at Seagrove Beach
in his honor.
He fought hard and strong for something he believed
in with all his heart and soul. He fought for the ADA
not for his behalf, but for all citizens our country who
deserve the accommodations to continue living a nor-
mal life with a disability. Prior to his own disability, he
was raised with a younger brother stricken with polio
at the age of 12. He was paraplegic from he age of 12
until his death, at a very early age of 44.
We would like to uphold the integrity of the ADA,
and continue to pursue avenues to assist in the devel-
opment of the awareness of the needs of the disabled.
We have been privileged to personally witness disabled
citizens being able to enjoy our beautiful beaches as a
result of the handicapped beach access at Santa Clara.
For that, we are truly grateful and so proud!
Once again, Don is dancing with his brother and many
other loved ones in heaven without a brace or wheel-
chair watching it all. May God richly bless you all, and
thank you once again.
Lovingly,
The Don Crim Family

"Ask Auntie Em"


Dear Auntie Em;
I am submitting this letter to you regarding my brother. I
have not seen him in over 40-plus years. He is 70 now, two
years older than I am, and he lives in California. He is
married and has two kids, which I never have seen and
also have never met his wife.
I have sent him cards at Christmas time but never re-
ceive any back. I have called him a few times and his wife
would answer and tell me he was at work and has not come
home yet. I leave a message that I called but he either
never received the messages or just ignored them. I was

able to call him a couple of times and did get to talk to him.
We were always close as kids growing up, but it seems that
my sister and him live in two separate worlds from me.
I do the calling to them and everything sounds good
when I do but that is where it ends. What should I do? I
love both of them, but as we grow older it seems we grow
further apart. Any suggestions?

Flummoxed by family in Florala
(Name withheld by request)

Dear Flummoxed,
To have love returned is one of our most basic human
needs. Being loved and having a sense of self-worth, like
food and shelter, it is an integral part of our well-being,
but we have to realize that not everyone is able to return
love in the way we want, not even family, sometimes. People
get busy with their lives, close themselves off to the past
for personal reasons and fear opening doors that have been
closed for 40-plus years, in your case.


So, let's reexamine what family means. It means being
there for someone when they need you, in good times and
bad. It means returning calls and making an.effort to stay
in contact. It may also mean being fearless and facing the
ghosts of your past, even if it is painful. Family is not just
bound by two people sharing the same genetic code passed
down by parents. In short, real family reaches back when
you reach out.
Auntie Em's bottom line is this you may always be the
one who tries to maintain this contact. You have to decide
that if that, in the end, is enough for you. In the mean-
time, try not to take it personally. If you sleep better at
night by making the effort, continue to do so, but don't
expect anything except the self-satisfaction of your own
efforts. You cannot control their response, only your ac-
tions. If you miss them and love them, tell them. After that,
reach out to those who reach back in your everyday life
and extend your family ties to those people who may not
share your blood, but share your heart. Good luck and re-
member, friends are God's apology for relations.
Auntie Em


Ask Auntie Em
Life got you down? Are you Dejected in
DeFuniak, Frustrated in Freeport, Peevish in Pax-
ton or Saucy in south Walton?

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, OCTOBER 4, 2007


PAGE 4B


In the Book of Acts, the
story is told of t ht Apio.tles:
being put in prison by a
group known as the
Sadducees. By night the
angel of the Lord brought
them out, and said (Acts
5:20), "Go, stand and speak
in the t, Ilph to the people
all the words of this life."
By "life" is meant not this
life nor the future life for
believers, but the spiritual
1li the hir'li [1.111 life, the
new life in Christ. This was
the theme of apostolic
preaching. It should be


that of every believer as well.
That is our task: Stand!
Stand!
We are to "stand" in the
place of danger for Christ.
When the men were found
later, they were found where
they had been previously ar-
rested. The report to the chief
priest was, "Behold, the men
whom ye put in prison are
standing in the temple, and
teaching the people." It took
daring to go to the place of
their previous arrest and
teach them again the things
of "this life" as they had been


told.
We are to "stand" in the
place of obedience. The an-
gel said "go, stand," and they
were found "standing." He
said, "speak to the people,"
and they were found "teach-
ing the people." Their obedi-
ence was prompt. The com-
mand was, "Speak in the
temple." "And daily in the
temple, and in every house,
they ceased not to teach and
preach Jesus Christ" (v.45).

We are to "stand" in the place
of opportunity. The door of


opportunity which God opens
for us is the door of opportu-
nity. To the hearers in the
temple they carried a mes-
sage and their testi-mony of
believing in Christ. In the
place of opportunity let us not
fear to stand nor fear to speak
for the Lord.
We are to "stand" in the
place of privilege. The place
of obedience is the privileged
place for us to serve Christ.
Let us "stand" for Christ. Let
us do it wherever and what-
ever the place in which He
puts us today.

(AT RIGHT) HEADSTART STUDENTS and their par-
ents enjoy Race Car Night at DeFuniak Springs Civic Cen-
ter

On Sept. 18, the Tri-County Head Start Program held a
Race Care Night for its students and parents, at the De-
Funiak Springs Civic Center. A total of 58 people from the
Walton and Chautauqua centers attended.
The students got to paint a race car in their favorite
color. While the cars dried, a delicious Italian dinner was
served. The students raced their cars on a track that was


built especially for the race.
Each student received a medal. A good time was had by
all. In October, the Walton center will take the students to
the Walton County Fair. A field day is also being planned.
Head Start centers are always in need of volunteers, ba-
sically anyone with some-spare time who enjoys three-
and four year-old children.


Head Start offered special thanks to Mrs. Barbara
Lawniczak for the food and Willie and Kathee Vaughn for
providing the race track.
Walton Head Start acknowledged Walton County Correc-
tions and Correctional Officer T. L. Seriqne for the hard
work that was done to make the center look good and safe
for the children to return to school.

PHILFORATE IT
DR. CHARLES SATTERWHITE, D.MIN


Need help making deci-
sions? Try the PHILFORATE
method. This method really
works!
As Pastor, I want to share
something with you. Try pass-
ing everything in life through
this passage of scripture: "Fi-
nally, brethren, whatever is
true, whatever is honorable,
whatever is right, whatever is
pure, whatever is lovely, what-


ever is of good repute, if
there is any excellence and
if anything worthy of
praise, let your mind dwell
on these things."

Why is this called
PHILFORATE? Because
the scripture passage is
from Philippians 4:8; Phil
- for ate. (At least that is
how I have decided to spell


GOD LOVES
A true love is pure and true love is blind
And most of us go through life and never find
Gods true love for us is always that way
In love we were created and it is the same today
He loved us so much He sent his Son
Who died for our sins and our lives can be one
On the cross for us He did bleed
His Holy Word He left so we could feed
Things of this world are beautiful and rough
With Jesus you can be gentle and tough
Gentle and kind to others always be
Tough in the Word and Jesus you will see
His love fbr us can never be lost
Never deny Jesus live for hint at all cost
Love of this world and you will always have trouble
This world will disappoint and Jesus is there on the double
The Bible s promises are God s Holy Word
See what s for you and for what has been stored
His salvation, blessings, and love are free
Take hint into your life and only then will you see
David E. Bruner

An invitation to all


women


Ladies who like to sing are
invited to come sing in an all-
women's choir which will
present the 7th Women's Fel-
lowship Christmas Concert
on Monday, Dec. 3. This event
is sponsored by the United
Methodist Women's Organi-
zation of First United Meth-
odist Church.

Rehearsals will begin on
Tuesday, Oct. 23 at 6:30 p.m.
in the sanctuary of the First'
United Methodist Church at
88 Circle Drive, DeFuniak
Springs.
All women who enjoy sing-


ing and wish to celebrate
Christmas in song, are in-
vited to join. For more in-
formation contact Nancy


it.) PHILFORATE helps us
remove peripheral issues and
center on the bottom line.
This device covers more is-
sues than we might think.

Actually, there are EIGHT
criteria in which to screen a
decision,: true, honorable,
right, pure, lovely, good 're-
pute, excellence, and worthy
of praise. Analyzing a deci-


sion based on these eight
items seems like an abun-
dant cushion for even the
most difficult dilemmas.
What are you deciding
on? Follow your choices
down the road and see which
solution keeps you truer to
Philippians 4:8.

How can you possibly go
wrong with PHILFORATE?

Braves 5-0 on season


Walton wins wild one over Chipley 43-37


By PATRICK CASEY
The Walton Braves picked
up their first win in Chipley
since 1998 as they rolled up
410 yards of total offense to
outlast the Tigers 43-37 in a
non-district contest.
Walton improved to 5-0 on
the season, their best start
since a 7-0 beginning to the
2003 season, as the team got
big plays from several differ-
ent areas in winning their
second road game of the
regular season.
The game had an ominous
start for Walton as Chipley
took the opening kickoff and
marched 64 yards in five
plays to take a 7-0 lead as
senior quarterback Zach
Schaubhut hit Joe Green
with an 18-yard scoring toss.
Walton responded imme-
diately as Issac Jackson took
the kickoff and faked a
handoff to a teammate on the
reverse at the Walton 7-yard
line, then sprinted the length
of the field as he went 89
yards to the Tigers 4-yard
line before a pair of Chipley
players could knock him out
of bounds. Justin Crishon
crashed in from two yards
out as the Braves tied the
contest 7-7 less than three
minutes into the game.
The two teams settled
down from that point on in


the first half to play solid de-
fense and limit scoring op-
portunities until Walton got
a 15-yard run from Jackson
to take a 14-7 lead with 2:35
left in the first half of play.
Chipley responded on
their next possession as they
went 79 yards in five plays
with Schaubhut hitting Paul
Hardwick with a 14-yard
touchdown pass to cut the
lead to 14-13. Sean Allen,
however, blocked the extra
point to keep the Tigers from
tying the contest up and Wal-
ton used the momentum of
that play, along with Allen's
15-yard kickoff return to
start a drive at their own 40-
yard line with 50 seconds left
in the half.
Junior quarterback
Tarrell Bramlet completed
passes to Jackson and Beau
Rushing, along with a per-
sonal foul penalty on the Ti-
gers, to move the ball to the
Chipley 1-yard line with 7
seconds left in the half.
Bramlet then snuck in,
barely, for a touchdown with
3 seconds left in the half to
give Walton a 21-13 lead.
Chipley caught the first
break of the third quarter as
Trey Jackson picked off a
Bramlet pass and returned it
12 yards to the Braves 24-
yard line. A personal foul


penalty moved the Tigers to
the 12-yard line, but Walton's
defense held and forced a 22-
yard field goal by junior Cody
Sikora as Chipley edged
closer at 21-16.
Walton answered with a
60-yard drive, the first of four
straight scoring possessions
for the Braves, as Beau
Rushing caught a beautiful
throw from Bramlet from 35
yards out to give Walton a 28-
16 lead.
Chipley muffed the ensu-
ing kickoff and special team
hero Sean Allen pounced on
the loose football to set Wal-
ton up in Tiger territory at
the Chipley 40-yard line. The
Braves moved the ball to the
Tigers 5-yard line before
stalling. Enter Devron Ford
who punched through a 22-
yard field goal from the right
hashmark to give Walton a
31-16 lead and the Braves
first made field goal since the
1999 season.
Chipley got great field po-
sition as Walton misfired on
a squib kick setting the Ti-
gers up at the Braves 42-yard
line. Chipley was unable to
take advantage as the
Braves defense stopped them
on downs and Walton's of-
fense went back to work as
they drove 62 yards in eight
plays as Jackson scooted in


from 8 yards out for a 37-16
lead.
Walton appeared on the
verge of a blowout when
Chipley caught fire as Leon
Broxton caught a 1-yard
touchdown pass, then after
an onside kick recovery,
caught a 15-yard pass from
Schaubhut to cut the Tigers
deficit to 37-30 with 4:01 to
play.
Walton's Akeem Gilbert
stopped Chipley's second
onside kick attempt by field-
ing the ball cleanly at the
Walton 49-yard line, then
outracing two Chipley Tiger
defenders for 37 yards to the
Chipley 14-yard line before
he could be tackled. Walton
needed only three plays to
cash in as Justin Crishon
scored from four yards out to
give Walton a 43-30 lead.
Chipley wouldn't go away
as the Tigers scored with
1:54 to play in the game on a
14-yard passto Joe Green to
make the score 43-37.
Chipley touched the third
onside kick of the night be-
fore it had traveled ten yards,
.giving Walton the ball at the
Tigers '47-yard line. Issac
Jackson sealed the win with
a 29-yard run for a first down
and Walton ran out the clock
to grab the win.
Walton's defense gave up


more points to the Tigers
than they had in the previ-
ous four games combined,
but recorded six sacks and
harassed Schaubhut all


night long in helping to earn
the win.
The Walton Braves will
travel to Baker on October 12
for a 7 p.m. kickoff.

Bulldogs chomp Seahawks, 45-0


By CHUCK HINSON
Freeport needed a win and
they won one Friday night'
when their defense stepped
up to the challenge and com-
pletely demolished Franklin
County. Freeport's defense
dominated the Franklin
Seahawks (0-4) who were
only able to manage one first
down throughout the entire
first half of the District 1-A
game and minus-10 yards in
offense. By the end of the
first half, the Bulldogs had
crushed any offensive moves
by Franklin County and had
rolled to a 28-0 lead.
Freeport had their own'
problems in the first half of
the game with five fumbles,
but their offense
overshadowed any mistakes
they had made. The Bulldogs
(2-2, 2-0) got their longest


drive in the first half with six
plays. Their longest on the
field was 63-yards.
.Drew Ferris scored first
for the Bulldogs with a 6-play
36-yard drive and an eight-
yard touchdown with less
than three minutes remain-
ing in the first quarter. Josh
Rhodes got an interception
and within just four plays
later, Nathan Hendrickson
scored from four yards out to
give Freeport a 14-0 lead and
set the course for the rest of

High school football round-up


By PATRICK CASEY
Justin Hurd ran for 162
yards and Gulf Breeze built
a 26-7 halftime lead as the
Dolphins defeated Pensacola
Catholic 26-16. The Crusad-
ers fell behind in the first
quarter as Hurd scored on a
pair of 3-yard runs to help
Gulf Breeze build a 12-0 lead.


Crusaders quarterback
David Kooi tossed a pair of
interceptions as Pensacola
Catholic fell to 1-4 on the sea-
son.
Marianna's Bradley
Battles scored three touch-
downs, including a return of
the opening kickoff for a
score, as the Bulldogs built a


28-0 halftime lead against
Holmes County. Marianna
won the contest 35-7 to im-
prove to 4-0 as the Bulldogs
have won their first four
games for the first time since
the 1995 season.
Liberty County had over
400 total yards of offense and
returned two Wewahitchka


fumbles for touchdowns as
they crushed the Gators 48-
0 last Friday night.
Port St. Joe built a 20-7
halftime lead at home
against West Gadsden, then
had to hold on as the Pan-
thers cut the lead to 20-17
with seven minutes to play
for their first win of the sea-


* son. Chaz Byrd ran for 121
yards and a touchdown as
the Sharks overcame 105
penalty yards to earn a Dis-
trict 1, Class A win.
Rush Hendricks scored a
pair of touchdowns as Jay
built a 21-0 lead, then sur-
vived a pair of fourth quar-
ter touchdowns by Sneads for


a 21-14 victory in Sneads.
J.J. Laster ran for 184
yards and a crucial two-point
conversion late in the fourth
quarter as Graceville rallied
for a 35-34 win over Vernon.
Graceville blew a 27-8 lead
but rebounded with a late
score to drop Vernon to 0-4
on the season.


Tigers make it two


By CHUCK HINSON
Just when the Gators
knew they had a second
chance at another national
title all wrapped up, the Au-
burn Tigers brought back the
haunting memories of the
2006 football season. Auburn
beats Florida in the final sec-
onds of the game, 20-17


Like other top 25-ranked
teams such as
Oklahoma, West Virginia,
Clemson, Rutgers,Texas and
Penn State, the Gators (4-1,
2-1) felt the fourth week
fumble as they all fell. This
time Auburn (3-2, 1-1)'had
more of a reason to win than
ever after two miserable


losses to University of South
Florida and Mississippi
State three weeks earlier.

It was Auburn, from the
opening drive down in the
swamp and remained that
way until the last few min-
utes of the fourth quarter
when the Gators and Tim


Tebow stormed back and tied
the game 17-17. It would
come down to the fancy foot
work of freshman Wes
Byrum who not only kicked
the 43-yard game-winning
field goal once, but twice.

The same number of wins
that Tommy Tuberville and


his Tigers have had against
Urban Meyer and his Gators.
The loss also ended an 11-
game winning streak that
Florida had had since losing
to Auburn in 2006.

Another tough blow for
Meyer was that he suffered
his first loss at home since


takingover the reigns of
head coach at Florida in
2005.

Florida must recover as
they prepare to make their
way to the AP No. 1-ranked
LSU to take on the. Tigers in
Baton Rouge this Saturday.


'Noles beat 'Bama


By CHUCK HINSON
Not since 1974 has
Florida State and Alabama
met fac to face, and Bama got
the win. But Nick Saban and
the Tide got their chance to
play against the winningest
coach in NCAA history and
found out that the old coach
still had some tricks up his
sleeve.

It came down to
the second half of the
game, and Bobby Bowden fi-


nally listening to his fans, for
back-up quarterback Xavier
Lee to shine on the field and
bring the Tide to their knees.
Florida State beat No. 22
Alabama, 21-14 and reestab-
lished the Seminoles as a
team to no longer dismiss.
Drew Weatherford started
out at the quarterback posi-
tion, but after one half of
missed opportunities and a
slow offense, Lee was given
his first chance of the season
to show just what he was-all


about. The 6-4, 235-pound,
Charlie Ward-clone, came off
the bench and ired two touch-
down passes to De' Cody
Fagg to escalate the Semi-
noles to a 21-7 lead over the
Tide at the neutral Jackson-
ville site.
A game that was domi-
nated by both team's defense,
Florida State had a "come to
Jesus" meeting in the locker
room at halftime and came
back out with the look of a
team that was playing for a


national title. Despite the 0-
0 score at rialftime, both his
seven-yard TD pass on the
opening drive of the third
quarter and then Fagg and
Lee hooked up again for a 70-
yard TD.

Lee completed 12 of 19
passes for 224 yards. He also
ran for a game-high 59 yards.
Offensive coordinator Jimbo
* Fisher said his decision on a
starting quarterback for next
week's game against N.C.


State, would not be made un-
til later this week.
FSU receiver
De'Cody Fagg caught nine
passes for 202 total yards
and Greg Carr with five
catches and a total of 107
yards.
For Alabama (3-2), they
scored with 5:04 left on the
clock when D.J. Hall caught
a back-of-the-end-zone pass
to bring the score to 21-7.
With 1:06 remaining on the
clock,Alabama scored for the


second and final time when
quarterback John Parker
Wilson connected with Keith
Brown.
Wilson completed 28 of 53
passes for 240 yards with
Hall catching seven passes
for 83 yards.
The 85, 412 fans attend-
ing Saturday's game at Jack-
sonville, was the most in at-
tendance, exceeding atten-
dance at the 2004 Super
Bowl game or any of the an-
nual Georgia-Florida games.


Walton golf team captures county match


By PATRICK CASEY
The Walton Braves golf
team defended their county
title by defeating South Wal-
ton 305 to 393 on Friday of
last week at the DeFuniak
Springs Country Club.
Sophomore Paul McCiure
was the low medalist on the
boys side of the equation as
he. shot a 71 whilee Sean
Carter, Heath Morgan and
Dylan Laird shot a 79 on the
course and Aaron Timmons
had an 84. Brooke Windharm
won the girls low medalist
title with a 53 in a 9-hole
match at the course.
"Panama City Arnold is
the only team to beat us in-
dividually so far," veteran
Walton golf coach Stan
Bosenberg commented after
the event. "We are going to
play Southwood (in Tallahas-
see) a couple of times in the
next few weeks with i he hope
of making it to the regional
there in late October."
The Southwood Golf Club
in Tallahassee is the site of
this year's regional after
Panama City's Hombre Golf
Course served as the host.


site the past two years.
Walton will host the dis-


trict tournament later this
month as the Braves are try-


ing to return to the state

trip to the southern part of
the state last season.

Anti-doping hits golf world


By CHUCK HINSON
Just after the Tour, de
France dumped the bad news
on 2006 Tour de France win-
ner Floyd Landis on Thurs-
day for apparently using
strength-enhancing drugs,
the world of golf decided to
reluctantly join the world of
anti-doping sports. Landis
has been stripped of his title
and for the pro golf circuit,
many changes for senior golf-
ers are just over the horizon.
With the commission's rul-
ing fresh in the minds of golf
associations, the organiza-
tion agreed to begin drug
testing all pro players for the
same strength-enhancing
drugs. The program could be-
gin as early as next spring,
although details such as
penalties are still being*
worked out.
It was the goal of the PGA
Tour, European Tour, LPGA
Tour, U.S. Golf Association
and all other high-end golf
organizations, to be able to
blanket the sport and elimi-
nate the problems, if any
should occur. This policy


would affect both men's and
women's golf.
Some of the tour stops are
a bit concerned about invad-
ing golfers' privacy and ask-
ing too many detailed ques-
tions. Some stops, like the
Augusta National, said they
would probably not start
their testing until the spring
of 2008, after being able to
review other golf tour stops
and, organizations through-
out the world.

Despite the avid attempt
by many golf associations to
avoid a possible incident that
could "shake" the golfing in-
stitution, organizers have
released a list of 10 classes
of drugs that will be banned,
which range from anabolic
steroids to hormones and
narcotics to beta blockers.
Two drugs listed on the
World Anti-Doping Associa-
tion list, which is used in the
Olympics and other sports,
were left off golf's banned list
because PGA Tour commis-
sioner Tim Finchem said it
would be more of an admin-


istrative burden and they do
not believe those substances
- Glucocorticosteroids and
Beta-2 will at all enhance a
male or female golfer's per-
formance.
Finchem, for reasons un-
known, has resisted drug
testing of athletes since the
beginning of the decade, say-
ing there was no evidence of
performance-enhancing
drugs in golf or of anyone us-
ing them. He added that if
that were the case, he sug-
gested that golf could get by
on its centuries-old honor
code of players calling pen-
alties on themselves,
But as doping began to sur-
face in the baseball and cy-
cling world, golf had increas-
ingly more pressure to join in
on the anti-doping march.
Finchem also said there
would be more meetings with
the organizations, directors,
golfers and their trainers to
make sure any questionable
vitamins, medications or
strength-enhancing drugs
were not part of the players
training or competition.


THE WALTON BOYS GOLF TEAM claimed the county crown with a team score of 305
last Friday.

"How can we be assured
that this isn't harmful?" was
Walton County District 5
Commissioner Cindy Mead-
ows' question to the chief of
the state Bureau of Entomol-
ogy and Pest Control on Sept.
25.
Bureau Chief Michael
Page was in Walton County
to provide information on the
state's Dog Fly Control/Op-
erational Support Program.
Recently Walton County
commissioners declined to
grant permission for aerial
spraying to control dog flies,
which had been proposed to
take place through the pro-
gram this fall.
The spraying had pro-
ceeded in previous years in
Walton County, although
none was necessary for the
past.two years, when few
flies happened to arrive in
the county. Since the com-
missioners' decision on the
spraying, a number of people,

The South Walton Fire
District (SWFD) has ap-
proved a slimmed-down bud-
get for the new fiscal year
that still provides for the ad-
dition of 10 personnel. The
84-square-mile special
district's budget was final-
ized at a Sept. 26 public hear-
ing at SWFD headquarters.
On that date, the SWFD
set a millage rate of 0.70
mills, 10.24 percent less than
the rolled-back rate of 0.7799
mills.
One mill equals one dollar
on each $1,000 of taxable
property value. The rolled-
back rate is the one that
would have resulted in the
same amount of ad valorem
taxes being collected in the
new fiscal year as in the cur-
rent year.


including Page, had re-
quested to address them on
this topic.

and Pest Control addressed

County Commissioners on
Sept. 25 regarding the dog fly
spraying issue. (Photo by

Total spending by the fire
district for the new fiscal
year has been lowered to
slightly less than $11.6 mil-
lion, a reduction of almost
$1.9 million from 2006-07 fis-
cal year spending.
The 2007-08 budget pro-
vides for expenditures of $8.6
million for personnel, $1.7
million for operating ex-
penses, $816,000 for capital
outlay, and $410,000 for debt
service.
, At a yearly cost of
$363,480, the district will be
adding 10 personnel, includ-
ing six firefighter-paramed-
ics, two dispatchers, a super-
visor/coordinator for the dis-
patch program, and an ad-
ministrative assistant.
Impact fee revenues for
the district had been pro-
jected as $225,000 for the


Depending upon weather
conditions, large numbers of
dog flies (a.k.a. stable flies)
can be "pushed down" on
north winds from Alabama
and Georgia to the Pan-
handle in late summer and
fall, ending up on the coast,
where beachgoers may suffer
the attack of their painful
bite.
In existence since 1972,
the state program utilizes
naled, an organophospate in-
secticide, which is sprayed
from a low-flying vintage
1941 DC3 airplane when the
dog fly count reaches a suffi-
cient level on the beach, as
determined by local mosquito
control districts.
Page said that only a
small amount of the insecti-
cide (0.66 ounces per acre) is
used when spraying takes
place, thus minimizing expo-
sure and risks to people and
the environment.
He explained that the
spray is released in very fine


droplets creating.a tempo-
rary "cloud" in a target area
that kills insects flying
through.
According to information
provided by Page, the insec-
ticide begins to break down
immediately once it is re-
leased in open air, and its
breakdown products are also
short-lived in the environ-
ment. He added that the U.S.
Environmental Protection
Agency has concluded that,
due to the amount of insecti-
cide used and the method.of
application, any resulting ex-
posure to humans would be
"hundreds or thousands ;of
times" below that which
might cause health prob-
lemis.
P'age highlighted the eco-
nomic aspect of the dog fly
issue. "'When dog flies are
present, beachgoers will not
be," he commented.
According to information
provided by Page on the
spraying program, before its

inception many tourists
would call to find out the dog
fly situation on the beach be-
fore leaving home and would
not come if the flies were
present-and tourists who
got attacked by flies on the
beach would leave early with
a negative attitude about va-
cationing in the area.
Meadows remarked that
by the time of year the dog
flies arrive, most of the tour-
ists are gone from, the'

Business burglarized

in Walton and

neighboring counties


The Walton County
Sheriff's Office (WCSO) is in-
vestigating a series of bur-
glaries that occurred within
a 48-hour period at busi-
nesses in south Walton
County, along U.S. 98. Simi-
lar events reportedly oc-
curred during the same time
period in Bay and Okaloosa
counties.
In Walton County, during
the early morning hours of
Sunday, Sept. 30, burglars
struck the Texaco in Inlet
Beach, and Quizno's sub shop
and Publix supermarket,
both in Sandestin. Burglars-
stole two cash boxes at sepa-
rate locations and attempted
to break into an automated


teller machine at a different
location. In the early morn-
ing hours of Monday, Oct. 1,
burglars struck the Shell sta-
tion and Fat Clemenza's res-
taurant in Sandestin. This
time, burglars were only able
to steal cash and a case of
beer from one location. Inves-
tigators from the sheriff's of-
fices in Walton, Bay, and
Okaloosa counties are col-
laborating and: exchanging
information to determine if
all the events are connected.
Anyone with information
on any of these events may
call WCSO at 892-8111 or

discusses


Okaloosa Darter


By JEFFREY POWELL
The Okalposa-Walton Col-
lege (OWC) Science Depart-,
ment recently held a free
seminar entitled "It's Your
Darter: Recovery of the En-
dangered Etheostoma
okaloosae."
The seminar was moder-
ated by William "Sandy"
Pizzolato and highlighted the
U.S. Air Force's commitment
to environmental steward-
ship in preserving the natu-
ral resources of the
Choctawhatchee Bay and
how Eglin Air Force Base
carries out its ecosystem
management in aquatic
habitats.
Pizzolato is an adjunct
professor at OWC and works
as a research associate for
the Eglin Natural Resources
Forestry Section.
The Okaloosa Darter is a
small fish that spends its en-
tire life scurrying along the
bottom of streams and creeks
in search of food. This species
of darter, according to
Pizzolato, is a relic species
isolated from the Brown
Darter and can only be found
on Eglin's reservation
(Okaloosa and Walton coun-
ties):
One of the main threats
to the darter is the erosion of.
sand from old borrow pits
that tends to smother the
creeks where the fish live.
Eglin has taken the proactive
measure of correcting over
163 of these pits in an effort
to stabilize the fishes' habi-
tat. Over 321 sites equaling
nearly 500 acres have been
reclaimed to date at a cost of
nearly $18 million.
The Okaloosa Darter was
first discovered in Little
Rocky Creek near SR-285
south of Mossy Head in 1938.

CALENDAR


THE ANNUAL
FLUTTERBY FESTIVAL
will be held at Gulf Place on

10 a.m. to 4 p.m. There will
be workshops, arts and
crafts, and plenty of refresh-
ments. Admission is free. For
more information, call 622-
5970.


It was listed as an end an
gqred species in June 1973
and a recovery plan was Ppu
in place in 1981.
"The Okaloosa Dartle
population is stable or in
creasing in all six stream sys
teams for the last five consecu
tive years," Pizzolato said
"The population today .i
much higher than it was in
the 1990s."
Eglin's efforts have beer
so successful that the fish is
likely to be moved from the
endangered list to a status o:
threatened in the near fu-
ture.
"The Air Force is months
away from down-listing this
darter," said Pizzolato. "This
will be the first species of its
kind to be down-listed on a
Department of Defense in-
stallation."

WATER USE TIPS AND STATISTICS



Install aerators on your kitchen and bathroom faucets to
reduce indoor water use. Aerators mi.x air w ith the water,
creating a flow that is still forceful but that uses far fewer
gallons per minute.

Dishwasher manufacturers now offer high-efficiency dish-
\washer models. These dishwashers use less water and en-
ergy. A highefficiency dishwasher can wash a load of dishes
using 5 to 7 gallons of water.

Repair dripping faucets and leaky toilets. Dripping faucets
can waste about 2.000 gallons of water each year. Leaky
toilets can waste as much as 200 gallons of \water each day.

By installing more efficient water fixtures and regularly
checking for leaks, households can reduce daily water use
b\ about 35-c.

If all U.S. households installed water-saving features, water
use would decrease by 30%., saving an estimated 5.4 billion
gallons of water per day. This would result in a saving of
11.3 million dollars per day.

Households on average use 350 gallons of \water per day.

In 2000. the highest water consuming states withdrew:
California 51,200 million gallons per day (mgd): Texas
29,600 nmgd: and Florida 20.100 mgd. In comparison, the
lowest water consuming states withdrew: Alaska 305 mgd:
Rhode Island 429: and Vermont 447 mgd.

THE DeFUN1AK SPRING GS HERALD, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 2007

Muscogee chairwoman testifies


before Senate committee


By JEFFREY POWELL
"I was called on by the
tribal elders of the Muscogee
Nation to see this project
completed," said Muscogee
Chairwoman Ann Denson
Tucker. "I will not quit until
it is over."
Tucker speaks with a con-
viction tempered by a life-
time of seeking official gov-
ernment recognition for her
Native American people. She
is a member of the Muscogee
Nation (formally referred to
as the Creek Nation), which


first contacted the federal
government for recognition
60 years ago by her great-
grandfather.
Tucker recently traveled
to Washington D.C. to testify
before a Senate Committee
on Indian Affairs in an effort
to continue what she hopes
is the last leg in receiving the
tribe's much-coveted recogni-
tion.
"This recognition would be
a win-win for all the citizens
of Walton County," Tucker
said. "If recognized, the


Muscogee Nation could pro-
vide for themselves health
care, Head Start programs,
Elder Care Services and
much more."
The Muscogee Nation is
headquartered in east-cen-
tral Walton County, in the
small community of Bruce.
Tucker's ancestors settled
there in an effort to go unno-
ticed after the federal gov-
ernment in 1852 made it il-
legal to be an Indian freely
living in the state of Florida.
To avoid 'Jim Crow' laws, the


Roll Call

Walton County Board of County Commissioners (BCC)
Sept. 25 regular meeting

A yes vote was to approve the motion.

Following discussion on pros and cons of the BCC granting permission for dogfly
spraying on the beach, motion by Meadows to sustain a previous BCC decision to deny such
permission.
The motion was approved unanimously: Brannon-yes; Comander-yes; Jones-
yes; Meadows-yes; Pridgen-yes.

Request by Walton County Emergency Services Division for permission to realign
$40,000 from paramedic/firefighter professional services into animal control contractual
services. This would cover veterinary services bills associated with animal control, bud-
geted at $9,500 per month but averaging over $12,000 per month, resulting from an
expectedly high number of cats and dogs being handled in fiscal year 2006-07.
A motion for approval by Meadows carried unanimously.

Recommendation by Allen Brown of Walton County Public Works for approval of
an agreement between the county and the developers of Redfish Village allowing the devel-
opers to landscape county right-of-way adjacent to their development along with construc-
tion of a multi-use path extending from CR-30A to Old Blue Mountain Road. Brown stated
that county and developer's representatives had met and agreed on limits and scope of the
improvements.
A motion for approval by Meadows carried unanimously.

Request by Ed Baltzley, Walton County Emergency Services Director, for ap-
proval of dissolution of the Glendale Volunteer Fire Department (GVFD), in accordance
with the decision of GVFD area voters, with GFVD MSBU monies going into the county's
general fund, GFVD equipment ownership being transferred to Walton County, and Walton
County Fire Rescue to provide fire protection in that area.
A motion for approval by Comander carried unanimously.

Public hearing on Large-Scale Amendment 06-01.14, proposed to amend the Wal-
ton County Comprehensive Plan to clarify location and policies for Village Mixed Use (VMU)
Center developments.
Motion by Comander to approve the amendment, leaving in place the requirement
for VMU Center developments to be a'm;akimumn of 40' acres, and their minimum size to be
five contiguous acres unless adjoining or abutting an existing VMU development; also con-
tinuing the requirement for VMU centers to be limited to U.S. 98 and CR-30A; plus requir-
ing vehicular and pedestrian access from neighborhoods, urban design amenities, and a
detailed development plan.
The motion was approved 4-0, with Jones not present for the vote.

Additional motion by Comander to transmit ten large-scale amendments approved
on Sept. 11 after two public hearings to the state Department of Community Affairs for
consideration, with one amendment approved on that date, LSA 06-01.3, removed from'the
transmittal package per planning department recommendation.
The motion was approved 4-0, with Jones not present.

Request by South Walton Utility Company to remove a 285-foot tower now adjacent
to Sacred Heart Hospital of the Emerald Coast on U.S. 98, and reconstruct it on a nearby
10-acre parcel on Goldsby Road, north of U.S. 98.
A motion for approval by Meadows carried 4-0, with Jones not present.

Request by Jenkins, Stanford and Associates for approval of Wildwood Village PUD,
67 single-family homes proposed for an 8.97-acre site at the northeast intersection of Wild-
wood Trail and Freedom Way.
A motion for approval by Meadows carried 4-0, with Jones not present.

Request by the McGill family for approval of The Stables at Sandy Pines, a 25-
single family lot, development proposed for a 282.72-acre property on the east and west
sides of Champion's Way, north of SR-81 and south of Buddy McGill Trail.
Due to alleged prior creation of lots and road paving on the property in the
absence of a development order, Brannon moved to table the proposal for two
weeks to allow for a review of legal issues by county legal staff.
The motion was approved 4-0, Jones having returned but abstaining due to his ab-
sence during most of the discussion on the item.

Request by Choctaw Engineering for approval of Serenity Estates, four single-
family units proposed for a 0.873-acre parcel on the north side of Lee Place, east of Robert
Ellis Street.
A motion by Meadows for approval with conditions carried unanimously.

Request by Jenkins, Stanford and Associates for approval of Sunrise Village, a 60-
single family unit development proposed for a 31.02-acre site at the intersection of U.S. 331
and Sunrise Road.
A motion by Jones for conditional approval carried unanimously.

Request by PBS&J engineering for approval of Rosemary Beach CRC Maintenance
Building, a 5,714-square-foot operations and maintenance building proposed for a 0.86-
acre site adjacent to Winston Lane.
A motion by Meadows for approval with conditions carried 4-0, with Brannon
temporarily absent.

Native Americans were
forced to claim caucasian or
African-American ancestry.
The Muscogee Nation has
the dubious distinction of be-
ing the second-oldest peti-
tioner for recognition in the
U.S. Beside the obvious fi-
nancial relief federal recog-
nition would bring to the
Muscogees, there is also a,
personal goal to be met by
Chairwomen Tucker. "If we
are able to be recognized it
would mean I have kept my
promise to the ones who
came before me and to the
ones that will follow," Tucker
said introspectively.
The Muscogee Nation
Headquarters are located at
278 Church Road in Bruce
and has a gift shop. Hours
are 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday
through Friday, and, can be
reached at (850) 835-2078.

Home Grown


Legends



Pappy McCormick

Potter Brown

Songs of the Home Grown Legends, is the story of two
completely different men with two completely different stories
held together by the common thread of their undying love for
music. Neal "Pappy"' McCormick (1909-1998) and Dwight
"Potter" Brown (1944-1999) were instrumental in the lives and
careers of hundreds of musicians. Both men are held so dearly
in the memories of so many.

A show for the entire family, Songs of the Home Grown Legends
is directed by Jeremiah Campbell and features something for
everyone. From light-hearted children's songs to good-time
dance numbers; this locally written and produced show is sure
to entertain. Live music and some of the finest talent our
community has to offer are certain to make this year's all new
Grit & Grace performance the best ever.

October

a n d *
events are
taking
place all
over the Panhandle.
Some of these local
events are bringing
national and inter-
national recognition
to our area and put-
ting Walton County
on the event and cul-
tural map once
again.


It is that time when most
of the summer tourists have
finally retreated back to their
origin of location, the
weather has begun to cool off,
and the Gulf has a pristine
blue hue to it that only ap-
pears in the fall of the year.
^, It is no wonder that locals
begin to venture out onto
their home-land and tourists
trickle in for a variety of
events.

Some of the most exciting
and cultural events take
place during the months of
October and November.

STATE OF FLORIDA
DEPARTMENT OF
ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION
NOTICE OF INTENT
TO ISSUE PERMIT

This intent to issue a permit (File
No. 66-0231701-001-DF) to Gregory
F. Lungstrum, 24 Longwood Drive,
Shalimar, Florida 32579, to impact ju-
risdictional wetlands and surface wa-
ters for the construction of a pile-sup-
ported, vehicular bridge and a pile-
supported single-family residence, is
hereby granted unless a sufficient pe-
tition for an administrative hearing is
timely filed under sections 120.569
and 120.57 of the Florida Statutes as
provided below. The project is located
on an existing spoil island, Parcel 03-
2S-19-24120-OOB-0071, in Freeport,
adjacent to Choctawhatchee Bay and
three manmade canals, Class III Wa-
ters of the State, Unclassified Shell-
fish Harvesting Area, Section 3, Town-
ship 2-South, Range 19-West, Lati-
tude 30 25m 48.24s/Longitude 860
7m 56.57s", Walton County. The pro-
cedures for petitioning for a hearing
are set forth below.

A person whose substantial inter-
ests are affected by the Department's
action may petition for an administra-
tive proceeding (hearing) under sec-
tions 120.569 and 120.57 of the
Florida Statutes. The petition must
contain the information set forth be-
low and must be filed (received by the'
clerk) in the Office of General Coun-
sel of the Department at 3900 Com-
monwealth Boulevard, Mail Station
35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000.

Because the administrative hearing
process is designed to redetermine fi-
nal agency action on the application,
the filing of a petition for an adminis-
trative hearing may result in a modifi-
cation of the permit and lease, or even
a denial of the application. Accord-
ingly, the applicant is advised not to
commence construction or other ac-
tivities under this permit/lease until the
deadlines below for filing a petition for
an administrative hearing, or request
for an extension of time have expired.

Under rule 62-110.106(4) of the
Florida Administrative Code, a person
whose substantial interests are af-
fected by the Department's action may
also request an extension of time to
file a petition Jor an administrative .
hearing. The Department may, for
good cause shown, grant the request
for an extension of time. Requests for
extension of time must be filed with
the Office of General Counsel of the


Department at 3900 Commonwealth
Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahas-
see, Florida 32399-3000, before the
applicable deadline. A timely request
for extension of time shall toll the run-
ning time period for filing a petition until
the request is acted upon. If a request
is filed latb, the Department may still
grant it upon a motion by the request-
ing party showing that the failure to
file a request for an extension of time
before the deadline was the result of
excusable neglect.

In the event that a timely and suffi-
cient petition for an administrative
hearing is filed, other persons whose
substantial interests will be affected
by the outcome of the administrative
process have the right to petition to
intervene in the proceeding. Interven-
tion will be only at the discretion of the
presiding officer upon the filing of a
motion in compliance with rule 28-
106.205 of the Florida Administrative
Code.

The petitioner shall mail a copy of the
petition to the applicant at the address
indicated above at the time-of filing.
The failure of any person to file a pe-
tition for an administrative hearing or
pursue mediation as provided below
within the appropriate time period shall
constitute a waiver of those rights.

A petition that disputes the mate-
rial facts on which the Department's
action is based must contain the fol-
lowing information:

(a) The name and address of each
agency affected and each agency's
file or identification number, if known;
(b) The name, address, and telephone
number of the petitioner; the name,
address, and telephone number of the
petitioner's representative, if any,
which shall be the address for service
purposes during the course of the pro-
ceeding; and an explanation of how
the petitioner's substantial interests
are or will be affected by the agency
determination;
(c) A statement of when and how the
petitioner received notice of the
agency decision;
(d) A statement of all disputed issues
of material fact. If there are none, the
petition must so indicate; ,
(e) A concise statement of the ultimate
facts alleged, including the specific
facts that the petitioner contends war-
rant reversal or modification of the
agency's proposed action; and
(f) A statement of the specific rules or
statutes that the petitioner contends
requires reversal or modification of the
agency's proposed action;
(g) A statement of the relief sought by
the petitioner, stating precisely the ac-
tion that the 'petitioner wishes the
agency to take with respect to the
agency's proposed action.

A petition that does not dispute the
material facts on which the
Department's action is based shall
state that no such facts are in dispute
and otherwise shall contain the same
information as set forth above, as re-
quired by rule 28-106.301. Under sec-
tions 120.569(2)(c) and (d) of the
Florida Statutes, a petition for admin-
istrative hearing must.be dismissed by
the agency If the petition does not sub-
stantially comply with the above re-
quirements or is untimely filed.

This action is final and effective on
the date filed with the Clerk of the De-
partment unless a petition is filed in
accordance with the above. Upon the
timely filing of petition this order will
not be effective until further order of
the Department.

der under section 120.68 of the Florida
Statutes, by the filing of a notice of

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, OCTOBER 4, 200'


MOST DEMOCRAT presidential candidates favor the failed Bush-backed Kennedy/Martinez amnesty plan and are
against the 700-mile border fence approved by Congress.


IMMIGRATION FROM FRONT


ports creating a tamper-re-
sistant ID system to verify
legal status."
Mitt Romney has taken
one of the strongest stances
against illegal aliens in the
U.S. He "opposes Bush-
backed guest worker plan,
saying it goes too far in ex-
panding future immigration
levels and calls for a better
system for employers to
verify legal status of workers.
Opposes allowing illegal im-
migrants to gain legal status
apart from existing proce-
dures available to all non-
citizens. Opposes in-state tu-
ition breaks for illegal immi-
grants and as governor of
Massachusetts, authorized
use of state police for immi-
gration enforcement."
Tom Tancredo, "supported
strict House immigration
overhaul legislation that did
not provide a path to citizen-
ship for some illegal immi-
grants. Voted to authorize
construction of a 700-mile
fence along the U.S,-Mexican
border. Has supported a
moratorium on legal immi-
gration. Supports denying
citizenship to American-born
children of illegal immi-
grants." : i
Fred Thompson got down
to basics on a recent Paul
Harvey broadcast. Regard-
ing his view of illegal immi-
gration, he said, "I think it's
time for a little plain talk to
the leaders of Mexico. Some-
thing like: 'Hey guys, you're
our friends and neighbors
and we love you, but it's time
you had a little dose of real-
ity. A sovereign nation loses
that status if it cannot secure
its own borders and we are
going to do whatever is nec-
essary to do so although our
policies won't be as harsh as
yours are along your south-
ern border. And criticizing
the U.S. for alternately doing
too much and too little to stop
your illegal activities is not
going to set too well with
Americans of goodwill, who
are trying to figure a way out
of the mess that your and our
open-borders policy has al-
ready created. My friends,
it's also time for-a little in-
trospection. Since we all
agree that improving
Mexico's economy will help
with the illegal-immigration
problem, you might want to


consider your own left-of-cen-
ter policies. For example,
nationalized industries are
not known for enhancing eco-
nomic growth. Just a
thought. But here's some-
thing even more to the point
that you might want to think
about: What does it say about
the leadership of a country
when that country's economy
and politics are dependent
upon the exportation of its
own citizens?'"
Voters are starting to sol-
dier up, not only at the polls
but on the Internet, on the
issue of illegal immigration.
Grass roots online organiza-
tions like
congressandimmigration.com,
illegalaliens.us, fair.org and
GrassFire.org are putting
heat on Congress and federal
officials alike by opening
channels that makes it easier
for the American public to
make their voices heard on
Capitol Hill. In September
2007, the Houston Chronicle
wrote, "With conservatives
being barraged with calls,
faxes and e-mails from anti-
illegal immigration groups
that view the DREAM Act as
amnesty, some Republicans
who supported the measure
in the past have been reluc-
tant to do so now."
According to the
GrassFire website,
"GrassFire team members
alone sent over 260,000 faxes
to the Senate in less than two
weeks. Add to that tens of
thousands of phone calls
along with the combined ef-
forts of NumbersUSA and
other groups, "barraged" is a
very good description of what
YOU-did. Again, unless citi-
zens stood up and spoke out,
the Senate would have
passed this amnesty package
as an amendment to the de-
fense spending bill.
GrassFire will be unleashing
a major expansion of our
"Where's The Fence?" ad
campaign which juxtaposes
this latest amnesty push
with the government's un-
willingness to build the bor-
der fence. Most importantly,
citizens like you once again
will be needed to rise up and
to take action to stop the
amnesty agenda."
These websites are also
informing Americans about
an alarming idea of giving


Social Security benefits to il-
legal aliens who have worked
in the U.S. According to the
FAIR, "With Social Security
facing projections of insol-
vency, a Bush Administra-
tion plan would hasten that
crisis by sending hundreds of
millions of dollars in Social
Security payments to Mexi-
can citizens living in
Mexico-including those who
have worked illegally in the
United States. Under cur-
rent law, an alien who
worked illegally in the U.S.
can only become eligible for'
Social Security benefits by
becoming a legal U.S.
resident. But officials at the
State Department and Social
Security Administration
(SSA) are preparing a plan
that would pay benefits to il-
legal aliens who have re-
turned to Mexico." Rep. Dana
Rohrabacher (R-CA) had this
to say about the issue, "Add-
ing millions of lawbreakers
to the Social Security system
would be a slap in the face to
our retirees. Why should we
bend over backwards for
those who broke our laws to
work in this country while
shortchanging the needs of
hardworking Americans and
legal immigrants who have


put money into the Social
Security system for
decades? With Social Secu-
rity in financial trouble, it is
totally insane even to think
about adding millions and
millions of alien lawbreakers
into the system. Congress
must act now to pass H.R.
1631 and keep this travesty
from happening."
Citizen groups are being
organized online, as well.
Al Garza serves as na-
tional executive director of
the Minuteman Civil De-
fense Corps. In an open let-
ter to the Kansas City Star
he wrote, "I am Hispanic. I
am an American. I am a Min-
uteman. These terms are not
contradictory. We are moti-
vated by the rule of law and
the need to secure the bor-
ders of the United States for
the sake of our children and
our grandchildren. Like our
Founding Fathers, we are
willing to sacrifice our lives
and fortunes 'in order to form
a more perfect union,' even
when we are discouraged by
the actions of our elected
leaders in Washington. Our
volunteers will travel from
all over America to the U.S.-
Mexico and U.S.-Canadian
borders. They will observe


THIS IS BECOMING a more familiar sight as citizens
demand government uphold its own laws regarding illegal
aliens.


and report illegal activity to
the proper authorities."
Northern Florida has an
active Minuteman Corps
that actively recruits citizens
in the reporting of illegal
alien activity. The Minute-
men are working on fencing
along the border as well.
Their most recent press re-
lease states, "Unlike the U.S.
government, the Minutemen
have already been imple-
menting a plan for border
security that is more than
"virtual" and that includes
an effective material bar-
rier-by volunteering their
time, energy and personal
funds in order to build
highly-effective demonstra-
tion security fencing on pri-
vate ranch land, expensed
through private donations
obtained from thousands of
citizens nationally.
The idea of placing a five-
percent tax on money wires
coming from the U.S. and go-
ing to Latin American coun-
tries is also taking shape. Ac-
cording to Ruben Navarrette,
a writer for Real Clear Poli-
tics, "There are lots of good
reasons to be dubious of Con-
gress' pointless and unimagi-
native plan to build 700 miles
of fencing on the U.S.-Mexico
border. But the possibility
that such a barrier might
hurt U.S-Mexico relations
isn't one of them. Mexican
officials warned that the
fence would damage the re-
lationship between the two
countries and urged Presi-
dent Bush not to sign the bill
into law. Now Mexico is
threatening to take its case
to the United Nations.
Mexico needs a timeout. Our
southern neighbor has no
standing in this debate. This
is the country that plays fa-'
vorites among its people,
fails to provide enough job
opportunities so its citizens
wouldn't have to leave, scoffs
at notions of social justice,
and allows the rich and
middle-class to exploit the
poor.
"Mexican officials really
need to stop meddling in
what remains an internal is-
sue that is, how we Ameri-
cans go about securing our
borders just as Mexico
wouldn't put up with med-
dling from Central American
nations about how to control
its southern border. Besides,
for Mexico, this issue is
mostly about dollars and',
cents. The concern is that, if
it becomes more difficult to
enter the United States, per-
haps fewer Mexicans would
try. And that could hurt
Mexico's bottom line by chip-
ping away at the more than
$16 billion that Mexicans in
the United States send home
annually.
Britain announced in Sep-
tember 2007, that "tens of
thousands of immigrant
workers will be forced to
learn English before they are
allowed into Britain under a
plan Prime Minister Gordon
Brown is expected to an-
nounce tomorrow in a speech
to the Trades Union Con-
gress in Brighton. The rules,
expected to reduce the num-
ber of people entering Brit-
ain by at least 35,000 a year,
will affect those from coun-
tries outside the European
Union who are seeking to
work and settle permanently
in Britain. 'Those who we
welcome into the UK to work
and settle here need to un-
derstand our traditions and
feel that they are part of our


shared national culture,'
Home Secretary Jacqui
Smith said. 'They need to in-
tegrate into our country,
learn English and use our
language.'"
Canada is also seeing an
influx of illegal aliens from
Florida as local officials start
to enforce immigration laws.
The Windsor Star reports,
"an estimated 180 Mexicans
from Florida have rushed
across the border and into
Windsor to claim refugee sta-
tus, fleeing a crackdown on
illegal aliens in Florida. Ev-
ery single day this month,
Mexican nationals who have
been living illegally i-n
Florida some for a dozen
years or more are turning
up at the Windsor-Detroit
border seeking refugee sta-
tus. The first group arrived
at the YMCA on Aug. 28. One
immigrant told Canadian re-
porters his fear of being de-
ported to Mexico intensified
within the past three months
as immigration officials in
Florida became more visible
on the streets and the inci-
dents of deportation of his ac-
quaintances increased.
When his American neighbor
threatened to report him to
authorities, he told his fam-
ily to pack-up. Local agencies
that work with refugees have
been told to brace for 4,000
to 8,000 refugee claimants."
Ideas abound in print and
online on how to stop illegal
immigration, but most sup-
port a core group of ideas.
The most important is re-
moving the incentive to im-
migrate in the first place.
According to most published
information on the subject,
such measures should in-
clude "enacting laws ensur-
ing that employers who hire
illegals will be punished
harshly enough to deter the
behavior; this will take the
illegals' jobs away. Enacting
laws prohibiting illegals from
receiving any government
benefits. Eliminating the
standard that confers citizen-
ship on children born to
illegals on our soil."
Local citizen and retired
INS official J.B. Hillard of-
fered a summation of what it
will take to control illegal
immigration. "The American
people have been our own
worst enemy on the illegal
alien issue. We have sat back
for at least 30 or 40 years and
paid little attention to the
problem," he said.
"We allowed our elected
politicians to pander to spe-
cial interest groups promot-
ing an open border and we
allowed big business to get
away with hiring illegals at
sub-standard wages. We
have to start to enforce the
laws we already have on ar-
rest, detention, and deporta-
tion. Enforce employer sanc-
tions, including fines as
specified in the 1985 Immi-
gration Reform Act and again
in 1995. Fund and build the
700-mile fence that has al-
ready been approved by Con-
gress. Fund the manpower
increases of ICE that have
already been approved. This
will go a long way in show-
ing a distrustful American
public that government will
protect our borders. Right
now few Americans trust the
government to do its job on
border protection."
Most Americans have only
one word to say to illegal
aliens "Adios." The question
is whether or not our own
government is listening.


SPRAYING FROM FRONT


"Can't we get the governor to write to Ala-
bama and Georgia and say'keep your dog
flies home?'" District 4 Commissioner Sara Comander


beaches. She also asked Page
if natural substances such as
garlic had been evaluated as
an alternative to the chemi-
cal naled.
Page responded that his
agency does sponsor univer-
sity research on different
ways to control pest prob-
lems. He was not sure if a
garlic spray had been re-
searched and said that he
knew of no evidence that it
would serve the purpose for
dog fly control.


Comander turned discus-
sion to the concept of control-
ling dog flies at their source,
stables in states to the north
of the Panhandle.
"Can't we get the governor
to write to Alabama and
Georgia and say 'keep your
dog flies home?'" she asked.
Page responded that the
cost to treat the fly problem
at its source would be "astro-
nomical" and "would put ev-
erybody out of business."
District 3 Commissioner


Larry Jones said it was his
belief that a decision on
spraying for dog flies should
lie with the South Walton
Mosquito Control District
(SWMCD).
District 1 Commissioner
Scott Brannon agreed.
However, the original
BCC decision had been the
result of the SWMCD re-
questing the commissioners'
permission for the dog fly
plane to spray over "con-
gested areas" south of the
bay.
"I implore you to take a
stand on this," said Walton
County conservationist M.C.
Davis.
Davis argued that no long-
term studies have been done
on the effect of exposure to
naled. He called the dog flies
"a mere inconvenience to a


minority of people," and told
the commissioners,"You are
our last defense."
James Ray, a Gulf Trace
homeowner who said he has
lived, on the beach since 1972
and owns several beach
rental homes, was of the op-
posite opinion.
Ray maintained that
many people do come to the
beach and try to enjoy it in
late summer and fall, and he
said he does not believe that
spraying for dog flies is
harmful to anyone.
Ray noted that for four
years children with cancer
and their families have come
to the Walton County beach
as part of the 'Lighthouse
Family Retreat program dur-
ing the fall.
"They cannot go to the
beach now because of these


dadburn flies," Ray com-
plained.
Meadows then moved to
sustain the previous commis-


sion decision not to permit
the dog fly plane to come in.
That motion was approved
unanimously.
