DeFuniak Springs Plan-

presented three planning
and zoning items during the
council's regular meeting on
Oct. 8. The- firs-t of the -% asis
an adoption hearing for a
stipulated settlement agree-
ment that will include a 15-
year capital improvement
plan, remedial future land
use map, remedial future
traffic circulation map, and
a remedial comprehensive
plan policy. The Council ap-
proved the agreement 4-0
with no discussion. Council-
man James Huffman was
absent.
The second item, an
adoption hearing for reme-
dial 06-LSA-08 (Ordinance
#757) referred to a 340-acre
parcel of land in the city,
commonly referred to as the
Murvin property, and De-
partment of Community Af-
fairs (DCA) requirements.
Scoville called the ordinance

Fire in DeFuniak


law office


By BRUCE COLLIER
A fire on the morning
of Oct. 8 caused extensive
il.,m.-,,, to the law offices
of William Kemper Jen-
fnings, at the corner of U.S.
"..'.I and Live Oak Avenue,
in DeFuniak Springs. De-
Funiak Springs Fire Chief
Brian Coley said he believes
the if',r, began at 4 a.m.
Units from various area fire
departments arrived on the
scene, and ,....,n to contain
the blaze. They were still
fi'li-linl.- up at 8:30 a.m..
with traffic on U.S. 331 halt-
ed and rerouted through the
area. The building was un-
occupied at the time of the


fire. and there were no inju-
ries.
Details of the fire. includ-
ing possible causes, were
few, though the wooden
structure contained "hot
spots," and particular care
was taken to eliminate smol-
dering material in the build-
ing's attic area. The office
also contained a great deal
of paper. Coley praised the
efficiency of the firefighters.
"These are some fine fire-
Ih, ,.b" he said. "By all
rights, that building should
be on the ground."
The Fire Marshal's Office
is investigating the fire.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, OCTOBER 11, 2007


COUNCIL FROM FRONT


dinance was for land use
change only and that any
development issues would
come to the Council for ap-
proval.
Following the Council's
4-0 approval, Scoville read
the ordinance aloud. A rep-
resentative of the Murvin
family came forward and
briefly thanked the Council
for their patience.
Scoville next requested
that the Council approve
an evaluation and appraisal
report. The purpose of the
report would be to evaluate
how well the plan adopted
in 2000 is working and what
modifications, if any, need to
be made. An adoption hear-
ing is scheduled for Oct. 22.
A motion was made and sec-
onded for the first reading
and to advertise the adop-
tion hearing. There was no
discussion, and the reading
was approved 4-0.
Paulette Morrison of the
DeFuniak Women's Club
requested that Circle Drive
be closed Oct. 31 from 5-7
p.m. for children to go trick-
or-treating and Dec. 8 from
1-2 p.m. for the Christmas
parade. Morrison made the
request for "the safety of our
children" and added that the
Christmas Reflections barri-
cades could be utilized. The
request was approved 4-0.
Public Works Director
Bill Holloway's requests
to purchase 33 hydromatic


pumps for the city's lift sta-
tions and an engine-driven
trash pump for emergency
repairs was approved 4-0.
City Manager Kim Kir-
by's made a request to ap-
prove the city's contract
with the DCA. The request
was approved 4-0. .
Kirby next asked the
Council to consider an
agreement with Bob Jones
of Jones-Philips & Associ-
ates, Inc. to contract admin-
istrative services. Harrison
asked to be excused from
the vote due to his business
relationship with Jones. The
Council voted 3-0 to consid-
er the agreement with Har-
rison not voting.
Kirby then. requested
that the Council consider a
greenhouse proposal from
Walton Correction Institu-
tion (WCI). Kirby said she
had received a letter from
Warden Jerry Cummings
that mentioned a long-
standing greenhouse on the
WCI property. The green-
house has been in a state
of disrepair, and Kirby sug-
gested a joint effort between
Walton County, Freeport,
and DeFuniak Springs that
would cost each entity no
more than $5,000 apiece.
Inmate labor would be used
to rebuild the greenhouse,
which would provide plants
and shrubbery for the cities
and county.
Harrison said he liked


the idea, but was concerned
about committing labor from
the city to maintain, wa-
ter, prune, and care for the'
plants. "We need to be sure
we have all that in hand,"
said Harrison. Kirby said
the inmates would maintain
the plants, too. The motion
to enter into the partner-
ship carried 4-0.
Next on the agenda was
a consideration of the top
three legislative issues for
the upcoming year to be
included in .the Northwest
Florida League of Cities'
survey. Harrison said the
city was constantly battling
infrastructure--streets, wa-
ter, and especially sewer.
He added that property tax
was already high on many
citizens' list of issues and
"will be addressed whether
we put it down or not. I don't
know if we get the bang for
our buck by putting that
down."
Last year, the City Coun-
cil listed affordable housing,
infrastructure, and econom-
ic development as the top
three issues. Harrison reit-
erated that infrastructure
and economic development
are crucial to the entire
county.
"Should growth manage-
ment be an issue?" asked
Harrison. Scoville replied
that the issue is already on
the legislative agenda of the
DCA and the Florida Plan-
ning Association.
Kirby brought up main-
taining home rule authority,


and recommended that this,
along with infrastructure
and economic development,
be included in the top three.
City Marshal Mike Ad-
kinson made a request to
authorize the purchase of
polygraph equipment, a
non-budgeted item, from
the city's seized and forfei-
ture account. Adkinson said
the item would cost approxi-
mately $8,000. Bowers as-
sured Harrison that every-
thing included in the request
was correct, and the Council
approved the request 4-0.
Bowers' motion to pay
bills carried 4-0.
Monday night's regular
meeting of the DeFuniak
Springs City Council ended
with several of the Council
members expressing admi-
ration for the city's firefight-
ers for their efforts during
that morning's fire at a law
office at the intersection of
Live Oak and U.S. 331.
No individuals came for-
ward for the citizens' com-
ments portion of the meet-
ing.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


Assistant Editor's coiniment


Those people....

By BRUCE COLLIER
Several weeks ago I read an article about "dying lan-
guages" and attempts to identify regions where they can
be found, and, supposedly, preserved. Two things amazed
me about the article. One was the estimate that some 7,000
!languages are spoken around the world. The other was that
'one of those languages is extinguished about every two
weeks. That is, it dies out forever.
The article goes on to cite Gregory D.S. Anderson of the
Living Tongues Institute in Salem, OR. Anderson says that
languages become endangered when the people who speak
'them decide they are an "impediment." Such people do not
disappear, they simply learn more widely-spoken lan-
guages. This has been nagging at me ever since.
The Herald has just finished running a series on illegal
immigrants, and the varied effects their presence has had
on the area and the nation. One doesn't have to venture
far to hear the catalog of people's complaints unlicensed
and uninsured driving, strain on health and child care re-
sources, unfair job competition, etc.
But, you know what really bugs people? It's that fuzzy,
shapeless quality that no one likes to think about, or at
least, that no one likes to think they think about. Lean
close in, and I'll whisper it. t
Those people look different, and we can't understand a i
word they're saying. F
I felt. odd, just writing that. But bear with me. c
Our newest reporter, Chris Manson, owns a dachshund.
You know, a weiner dog. He told me the other day that i
during both World Wars, these dogs, originally a German
breed, were chased and assaulted by what could only with'
charity be called "fiercely patriotic"Americans. Why? Dogs g
didn't sink the Lusitania, or blitz Poland. If any did, they
were probably German shepherds. Why not skip the P
middle-dogs and just assault any stray Germans?
Simple. Germans are the second most prevalent immi- a
grant group in the United States, outdone only by the En- i
glish-Scots-Irish. Germans look like us. They talk like us. t
A lot of them are us. Americans of Japanese descent didn't, w
and what happened to them after Pearl Harbor? Execu- Y
tive Order 9066, creating internment camps, an injustice f
so great that the Supreme Court of the United States even- t
tually corrected its own decision that had upheld those t
camps. After 1945, of course.
My parents always spoke of time in three periods "be- B
fore the war," "during the war," and "after the war." Now, P
TI
we speak of before and after Sept. 11. The .ugly,, nagging
truth is that we are living in a period where anything dif- a
ferent, anything foreign, touches a nerve that those of us t
who were not around on Dec. 7, 1941 didn't even know we t
had. That sense of violation, of invasion by those, people. f
The more foreign they look, the less English they speak, t'
the harder it is to be around them, or to feel comfortable in t
their presence. P
This is the part in the Assistant Editor's Handbook w
where, having identified the problem, I must now assume a
the Burning Bush position and render the answer. I don't
have one. I only,have some suggestions. a
To newcomers wherever you came from learn the
language of the country where you intend to become a resi-
dent. You don't have to give up your native language, just d
add a new one. This will put you ahead of many Ameri- t
cans, who only speak their native language. It's amazing
how much less foreign a person looks when he speaks the n
local tongue. ti
People around the world are really not that different. o
They do more or less the same things wake up, eat, go to w
work, eat, work some more, come home, eat, go to sleep. co
What is different is how they talk about all that. Language ti
may be the single most divisive human characteristic, more t
than politics or culture, maybe even more than race or faith. co
The wrong words have probably caused more sorrow in li
this world than anything else. From wrong words come
misunderstandings and misconceptions that can be nearly
impossible to correct.
To the already-Americans (a.k.a. the old immigrants),
yes, absolutely, your concerns are valid. It is a problem. E
You can make it less so by meeting newcomers half-way.
Next time you start complaining about people not speak- t
ing English, pick up the foreign language book of your
choice and start learning. See how fast you attain conver-
sational fluency. Anyone who studies a language intend- bi
ing to speak it knows there is no substitute for speaking fi
with a fluent speaker. Newcomers, the same goes for you. ni
Both groups ask, "Why should I have to?" Because, the
status quo (a Latin phrase) is that we are in an imbroglio w
(Italian) here in America, and unless we consider doing a C
little schmoozing (Yiddish), we will never reach any kind m
of detente (French). C
I thought that needed to be put in plain English. b

* Guest Editorial The InvasionHas Found Us
By J. B. Hillard


Who would have ever
thoughtt Walton County and,
more notably, the city of De-
Funiak Springs would be-
come a haven for illegal
aliens? Well, the invasion of
illegal, aliens has finally
found our part of paradise,
and the long range impact is
going to be felt in ways that
ire currently only antici-
pated. The unforeseen can be
better understood if we pay
attention to what is happen-
ng in other parts of the coun-
ry that have been dealing
with the problem for many
years. We have been oblivious
or way too long, but the
imes have changed, or have
hey?
Last week, the Herald-
Breeze concluded a seven-
part series on immigration.
'he series covered both legal
nd' illegal immigration ac-
ivity. My hat is off to our very
traditional local newspaper
or recognizing the changes
making place and devoting the
ime, space, and energy to
publish such as extensive
yell researched study. The
author of the series, Alicia
Leonard, did an exceptional
nd outstanding job.
Each week as the articles
mere read with a keen eye for
etail and accuracy, the edi-
orial page was scanned as
vell. Much to my amaze-
ient, there was little reac-
ion in the form of comments
r letters to the editor. There
vas no outcry either pro or
on to these revelations. The
mes have changed so far as
he Herald news reporting is
concerned, but has local pub-'
c apathy changed at all? It


sure doesn't look like it to me!
Are we so smug in our para-
dise that we feel life around us
will never change? Hey folks,
it's time to wake up!
Let's take a look at what we
know from the article series
and what we know by just liv-
ing in Walton County and De-
Funiak Springs and observing
the community around us. We
know both the sheriff's depart-
ment and city police depart-
ment are aware of more and
more illegals taking up resi-
dence. We know these depart-
ments are struggling with
what to do about it, and we
know they are doing very little
with the laws they can enforce,
i. e. identity theft, false em-
ployment documents. It's a
tough balancing act they must
perform. The public all over
the country is demanding lo-
cal law enforcement do what
they can simply because" the
federal government cannot do
the job. We should see more
effort by local law enforcement
where they can make a differ-
ence. Also, we should see local
government get serious about
not hiring contractors using il-
legal aliens to do public work
at taxpayer's expense. This one
is easy! Put the prohibition in
the contract, then follow-up to
see if the contract is being fol-
lowed.
It is reported DeFuniak
Springs has become a sanctu-
ary city and is now a well-
known magnet for others to
follow. This was well-docu-
mented.in part five of the se-
ries. This dubious designation
is certainly not because of city
or county government prohib-
iting cooperation with ICE, as


has been done in other ar-'
eas. Nevertheless, all of the
human elements contribut-
ing to the establishment of
a sanctuary are present.
This is certainly under-
standable, for the very na-
ture of American society is
to help those in need. The
tough call is whether or not
to offer help in a manner
that rewards law violators
and attracts more to this
area. As individuals, we
must weigh our own per-
sonal stand on this one, but
this nation was built on a
'foundation of law and order.
Do we support law and or-
der, or do we support the
continued chaos that illegal
immigration has brought to
this country and now is be-
ing .directly inflicted upon
our community?
:, For decades, the federal
government has' failed in
their responsibility to pro-
tect our borders. Democrat
and Republican adminis-
trations alike have been in
lock-step with those who
press for open borders,
cheap labor, amnesty, free
education, and financial re-
wards for border-crossing il-
legal migrants. Migrants
are what most really are -
for the vast majority does
not wish to return home! If
anything, Republican ad-
ministrations have been the
most tolerant of illegals and
wish to grant amnesty to
millions.
President Reagan
granted amnesty and Presi-
dent Bush.almost got away
with it again. Bush had
strong liberal support from


both parties, but it was not
strong enough to overcome the
uprising by the American
people who had had enough.
The Bush "comprehensive im-
migration plan" was soundly
defeated. Having said that, we
all know this was just round
one. Other attempts are in the
'making to piece-meal rewards
for millions of border crossing
law violators who have de-
cided to migrate to this coun-
try without benefit of legal
entry.
Here in our own commu-
nity, we are discovering how
illegal aliens are starting to
impact the medical and edu-
' national system. Florida tax-
payers are required by the
state constitution to provide
an education to all children,
without regard to citizenship
or legal residence. There are
taxpayer-suppqrted programs
in place right here in Walton
County that care for children'
of illegal aliens while they at-
tend school or work. The local
hospital and doctors have to
absorb huge medical costs. You
see more and more reference
to arrests for various crimes
and driving infractions. Just-
last summer, we witnessed
two Americans and a third
person of unknown origin, be-
ing killed in a car accident on'
the U.S. 331 bay-fill. The
driver causing the accident
was an illegal alien from
Mexico.
How much is America will-
ing to accept? The people are
saying "Get the border under
control, deport the criminals,
and prosecute employers who
are violating the law by hir-
ing


Letters to the Editor


ditor:
Relative to the September 27 Letter to the Editor stating
iat The Florida Chautauqua, Inc., had closed its doors to the
public nothing could be further from the truth. The local
businessman referenced several times in the letter is not af-
liated with The Florida Chautauqua, Inc., and is therefore
ot authorized to speak as its representative.
Perhaps the misunderstanding on the part of the letter
writer arises from the fact that in addition to The Florida
hautauqua, Inc., at least two other organizations in this com-
Lunity use the name "Chautauqua" in their titles (the Florida
hautauqua Center, Inc. and the Florida Chautauqua Assem-
y, Inc.). This letter will attempt to clarify the history and
mission of The Florida Chautauqua, Inc., in the hope of assur-
.g the writer and your readers that our organization contin-
es in its commitment to serve the entire community.
Our organization The Florida Chautauqua, Inc. -began
1976 as a committee under the auspices of the Walton
county Chamber of Commerce to celebrate the country's Bi-
ntennial. From its inception, the organization flourished
Rough yearly "Festival Days" and educational, artistic, and
iltural programming in our schools and community. In 1982,
was re-incorporated as The Florida Chautauqua Inc., to bet-
r reflect this programming and its ties to the original Florida
hautauqua.
In 1991, The Florida Chautauqua, Inc., purchased the
awson Theater to provide a home for our flourishing theater
'oup, and through community support and hard work, the
building was restored in 1998. Since that time, it has been
id will continue to be available for' rental to any organiza-
on able to agree to the guidelines for its use. Numerous or-
anizations, including the Florida Chautauqua Center and the
orida Chautauqua Assembly Inc. have availed themselves
that opportunity over the years and continue to do so.
The Florida Chautauqua, Inc., maintains, operates, and
ays all expenses for the facility, and its responsibility first
id foremost is to be good stewards of its funding and the
gilding. Naturally, our programming needs have first prior-
y for yearly scheduling of events. Although other schedule
'ailability is limited, we have never considered closing the
gilding to public use.
This fall, 45 children are participating in music, movement,


and drama workshops, while an additional 27 are in re-
hearsal for the upcoming production of "The Legend of
Sleepy Hollow." Similar activities will continue in 2008 from
January through May and August through December.
The Florida Chautauqua, Inc., continues to be an
all-volunteer effort that in 2006 saw 325 volunteers con-
tribute 3,000 hours of service to keep its doors open. Our
Mission continues to be the provision of educational, artis-
tic and cultural opportunities for everyone in this commu-
nity. As always, our doors continue to be wide open as this
community assists us in making Walton County, a great
place to live and to learn an appreciation for the arts.
Sincerely,
Cynthia S. Roehm, President
The Florida Chautauqua, Inc.


Editor:
I must publicly apologize to First Presbyterian Church
and the Chautauqua Theater for recent inaccurate, unap-
proved and accidentally published minutes of St Agatha's.
The facts are: First Presbyterian Church has offered its fa-
cilities to both Chautauqua Assemblies and the Chautauqua
Theater can only allow use of its facilities when it does not
'conflict with their schedule. Any innuendo to the contrary
must be stricken from the public conscience as it has been
from the corrected, approved minutes of St. Agatha's.
Respectfully,
Craig S. Robinson
DeFuniak Springs

Standing In The Sun (Album Review)
This is unique. All the songs on this album are written by James Singletary, and
intended to be presented as a collection. It flat works. From Lay It Down to Don't Tell
Me He's Not Real to the title track, this album leads us on a Spiritual odyssey. The pro-
duction is robust, pure acoustic Country with Bluegrass underpinnings, the rich voices
of James and Robert McMillan, and thick harmonies that appear early in the songs are
really different and really fresh.

Healthmark welcomes new caregivers


By CHRIS MANSON
Healthmark Regional
Medical Center in DeFuniak
Springs recently added three
new caregivers to its staff.
J.P. Monastero, M.D.,
board certified by the Amer-
ican Society of Addiction
Medicine and a Fellow of
the American Academy of
Emergency Medicine, has
been in the area almost 20
years. He was hired Oct. 1
as Healthmark's director
of emergency medicine and
will also serve as director
of the Healthmark Rural
Health Clinic.
"I wear many hats," said
Monastero. "I can see in the
next few years that Health-
mark will have a lot of ser-
vices to offer a rapidly grow-
ing population."
Sandon Speedling, vice-
president of business de-
velopment for Healthmark,
attributed the staff addi-
tions to recent retirements
along with the demand for
,additional physicians in the
area. The hospital and clinic

County.
"It's an exciting time,"
said Speedling. "We're very
proud of the facilities in
our hospital and clinic." He
added that Healthmark is
constantly seeking ways to
offer better quality care to


its patients.
Dr. Javeed Syed recently
finished his residency in
Wilkes-Barre, PA., and will
bring his skills to the clinic.
He said he and his family
were interested in relocat-
ing to Florida, where there
is "a great need for doctors."


Ron Aldridge, a physi-
cian's assistant, is anoth-
er recent addition to the
Healthmark staff. A Pan-
ama City native, Aldridge
served in the U.S. Army for
21 years, more than half
of those as a deep-sea div-
ing medical technician. At
Healthmark, Aldridge spe-
cializes in emergency medi-
cine and family practice.
"It's a newer facility and
a nice city," said Aldridge.
"There's some great people
here."
Healthmark Regional
Medical Center opened its
doors in Dec. 1999. The hos-
pital is located on Hwy. 331
S., approximately two miles
south of 1-10.

Stone, agreed that mem-
bers of the organization are
"thrilled" that the schooner
will at last have a place to
dock in Walton County "af-
ter all these years."


Thompson commented
that she is "absolutely
confident" that the ves-
sel will be self-supporting
through the community
once it is at home in Walton
County.

Constructed in Pasca-
goula and named for Mis-
sissippi's first elected gover-
nor, the vessel had been the
responsibility of the Apala-
chicola Maritime Museum
prior to 2003, when the
museum found it could no
longer afford the Governor
Stone's upkeep expenses.
At that time the Friends
of Eden, a nonprofit organi-
zatiin dedicated to support
of Eden Gardens State Park'
in Point Washington, vied
with parties from a num-
ber of other areas to have
the historic ship assigned to'
them. The vessel is the type
used for trade in Walton
County during its .pioneer
days, and many local educa-


ated nonprofit Friends of
the Governor Stone. Main-
tenance needs for wooden
boats such as the Governor
Stone are not insignificant.
Thompson said they need
fresh paint about every six
months.
The Governor Stone was
provided with restoration
work while stationed at
Miller Marina in Panama
City, and currently the ves-
sel is located at The Boat
Marina in Fort Walton
Beach, where additional re-
pairs have been provided.
Thompson said the ma-
rina and boating commu-
nity has been extremely
supportive."They realize
that we have a national trea-
sure," she said.
In addition to Eden Gar-
dens, over the past few years,
a number of permanent loca-
tions had been proposed for
the Governor Stone in south
Walton County, including
the Kellogg property on Nel-
lie Drive, which is being., de-'
veloped by the South Walton
Tourist Development Coun-
cil as a public nature center,
and the Huettel property on
Hogtown Bayou, recently
purchased by the county for
community use.

Thompson said plans are
for the Governor Stone's
Captain Dick Gercak to
bring it to Walton County
as soon as the slip is ready.
The Friends of the Governor
Stone'have many plans once
the vessel has a permanent
home.
"She will be a regional
boat," Thompson said.
The Friends hope to in-

to find out how we can go
on ahead and get a shelter
going here. Shelter House
owns property here, but
the house is so old, it's not
worth fixing up. Habitat for
Humanity said they would
help build one for us. This
time of year, (victims) have
to leave school and their jobs
to get to a shelter and try to
get children back to school
daily. Most don't leave due
to transportation, although
Shelter House does provide
this."
Porter added that Holmes

in the county. This is some-
thing the county has needed
for a long time."
Brown inquired about
the sources of funding for
Shelter House and similar
non-profit ventures. Parker
said she believed that the
Florida Council on Domes-
tic Violence provided some
funding for prevention, such
as utilizing churches to edu-
cate young women. She esti-
mated that it takes roughly
$400,000 annually to run a
shelter. "The Shelter House
in Okaloosa County only
has -14 beds, and they're
full most of the time," said
Parker.
"The first thing to de-
termine is how shelters in
other places are funded,"
said Brown. "Government
grants? The private sector?
I don't know, to be honest
with you. This is the first
'time someone has come to
me and said we need to do
something specific. I'll make
some phone calls and make
an inquiry as to how they're
funded. But if we want to
pursue it based upon gov-
ernment funding and state
funding, we're swimming
upstream."
Brown explained that the
legislature was readying a


special session to cut $1 bil-
lion from the budget. "This
is the worst possible time
to ask for funding for a new
project," he said. "We have
to compete with plethora of
very worthy programs. I cer-'
tainly don't have any prob-
lem at all acknowledging
this is a real need. I can't
imagine the horror of some-
one having to make that de-
cision to move to Okaloosa
County or go back to some-
where there is a real danger.
I also realize for every one
of those, there's maybe nine
cases of emotional abuse."
A short discussion of the
psychological makeup of
the typical abuser followed.
"It's more about power than
anything else," said Porter.
"If it's an anger issue, they
can turn it on or off. They
can act normal like us sit-
ting here, but when they get
back home, it's a totally dif-
ferent issue."
While the vast majority
of cases are male-on-female
abuse, Porter acknowledged
the increasing number of
male victims in domestic
abuse situations, as well
as same-sex partners being
battered.
"I'm seeing a trend where
the male will call saying the
female threw a lamp and
hit him upside the head,"
said Farris. He added that
maybe one in 10 male vic-
tims come forward. Brown
said he had been told that
in same-sex relationships
where violence occurs, "it
tends to be at a higher level
than heterosexuals." Porter
and Farris both confirmed
this.
Another common occur-
rence is mental abuse. A vic-
tim is isolated from friends
and family or not given
money for grocery shopping.
Many cases are fueled by
drugs and 'alcohol, on the
part of both the abuser and
victim.
Porter said her office and
other agencies were trying
to get their message to area.
schools. "A young teenage
girl may think it's cute for
her boyfriend to get jealous,
but I have nieces and neph-
ews who have told me about


teen violence they've seen,"
she said. "That's where we
need to get started--even
younger if possible. To show
them 'power control' is not
normal."
Brown said the problem
with some programs is that
they are "well-intended, but
in terms of the law, it's like
prior restraint. You can't
take action because you
think someone's going to
do something. It's a tough
thing. It starts with our
families.
"I know someone who has
a perfect solution to this.
Unfortunately, she passed
away in 1995--my mother.
She had six kids, and we
behaved. When I was grow-
ing up, I had a drug prob-
lem. When I did something
wrong, I was 'drug' out to
the woodshed, I was 'drug'
to church on Sunday and
Wednesday."
Farris noted that stricter
laws have helped somewhat.
An abused spouse or partner
need not press charges if the
officer on the scene can de-
termine a criminal act has
occurred. But without phys-
ical evidence, it's a "he said,
she said" situation.
"The real issue is to pro-
vide resources for people
in this area," said Brown.
The meeting concluded
with Brown asking Porter
and the others to do some
research about the sources
for domestic abuse shelter
funding. He promised to do
the same on his end.
"The state budget is pretty
thin right now," he reiterat-
ed. "Everyone is scrambling
to lay their hands on what
little funding is there."
Following the one-hour
meeting, Sikes called Brown
the kind of person who en-
joys helping people without
seeking recognition. "You
can just walk into his office
and talk to him," said Sikes.
For now, Sikes will serve on
the subcommittee chaired
by Porter and Parker. Sikes
initially thought tougher'
laws were the solution to
the domestic abuse crisis,
but is now convinced that
the top priority is to educate
the community.

Burglary at antique gallery


By BRUCE COLLIER
Southebys Antiques Gal-
lery, at 27 Crescent Drive in
DeFuniak Springs, was the
scene of a forcible break-in
and burglary, apparently
sometime on Sunday, Oct.
7. Owner Dee South said


that investigators deter-
mined that a window had
been pried open, shattering
the glass. The burglar or
burglars tossed a number of
items glassware and bot-
tles onto the lawn outside
the building.


Upon entry to the gal-
lery interior, the intruders
broke various items, and
removed several pieces from
a case, including watches
and rhinestone earrings
and necklaces. "I think
they thought they were dia-
monds," said South. She es-
timates the loss from stolen
items to be at around $500,
but repairing the damaged
window will cost even more.


The case remains under
investigation, though South
said the investigators told
her they had some possible
suspects in mind. South
said that her gallery is oc-
casionally visited by people
in need of money for food or
gasoline, and that she gen-
erally tries to accommodate
them. Some of them may
have been looking over the
store, she added.

Suspect Mitchell

arrested in Virginia


By BRUCE COLLIER
William Joe Mitchell was
arrested in Winchester, VA.,
in connection with an inci-
dent last week in which he
allegedly persuaded a 15-
year-old Bartow girl to run
off with him. Mitchell, 46,
is registered in Florida as a
sexual offender. Investiga-
tors believe that he made
contact with Alyssa Frank
on an Internet site. Mitch-
ell reportedly represented
himself as being in his 20s.
Frank left her parents'
house in Polk County early
on the morning of Oct. 1 to
'rendezvous with Mitchell.
She and Mitchell traveled


to a Wal-Mart in DeFuniak
Springs, where he dropped
her off Tuesday morning.
Frank reportedly told police
that Mitchell had threat-
ened to kill her ,if she called
attention to herself. He then
left her in the store and nev-
er returned. The incident
had generated a great deal
of publicity, with Mitchell's
photograph and a descrip-
tion of his vehicle broadcast
over television, radio and
the Internet, and all-points
bulletins issued,
Specific charges have not
been reported, though there
is reportedly a suspicion of
sexual abuse.

BUDGET
phase out funding for non-
profit organizations. "This
was hard to do," agreed Dis-
trict 4 Commissioner Sara
Comander, "but we had
already notified non-profit
groups about this decision
for the past two years in an
effort to help them become
more self-sufficient. Al-
though none of the cultural
programs were funded,'we
did decide to move forward
and fund some non-profit
groups, like the Council on
Aging. We provided them
enough funding to cover
their grant matches for the
organization and to provide
the same level of meals cur-
rently being served to our
needy seniors," she says.
No new ambulances or
fire trucks will be purchased
this fiscal year, although
many new emergency ve-
hicles had been purchased
in the previous budget. A
$1 million grant from the
federal government will be
helpful in upgrading emer-:,
gency communications. with
the county only having to
provide minimal funding for
the upgrade from last year's
budget. Additionally, only
three new positions were
added to the county staff
roster and no new staff ve-
hicles or replacements will
be purchased in the 2007-
2008-budget.

budget spending guidelines

Dog saved in Freeport fire

Free "Pet Finder" and "Tot Finder" stickers T SILENT
CHEVROLET* BUICK AUCTION


WALTON COUNTY Administrative Assistant Cindy
Price demonstrates how easy the "Pet Finder" sticker can
be placed on any window of your home. Tot Finder stickers
are also available to alert firefighters that children may be
inside your burning home.


Walton County and Free-
port firefighters rescued a
dog from a burning house
on October 3 on Eckie Drive.
Firefighters believe the
home was hit by lightening
while the renter, Christy
Burnham, was away. Her
dog, named "Boudreaux"
was in the house when fire-
fighters arrived, and neigh-
bors informed them the
dog was inside. Although
it was a struggle to get the
dog safely out of the house,
"Boudreaux" was finally led
out the-back door to safety.
"This may not seem like
a dramatic story," says Wal-
ton County Fire Chief Eddie
Rivers, "but if there had not
been a neighbor to inform
firefighters that a dog was
inside, we may not have
known about the need to
make such a rescue." Chief
Rivers says fire rescue
teams rely on stickers fire
departments have avail-
able to homeowners and
renters for free that can be
placed on windows to iden-
tify rooms which children
or pets may be located. "We
have free Pet Finder and
Tot Finder stickers for any-
one who wishes to pick them
up," says Chief Rivers.
"I'm so grateful to the
firefighters for saving my
dog's life," says Boudreaux's
owner, Christy Burnham.
"He's like a member of my
family,- and I want to thank
the Walton County Fire
Rescue Team and Freeport
firefighters for everything
they did."

to support the prevention
of brain disorders and raise
funds for the building of a
new facility scheduled for
2008.
David Drake served as
master of ceremonies and
many local agencies took

checks. Local churches, re-
tired teachers associations,
DeFuniak Springs Garden
Club and the Pilot Club also
joined to help make the fes-
tival a success. Local artists
sold wares and vendors had
a wide Variety of tasty treats
for sale. An antique and col-
lectibles' silent auction was
held and door prizes were
given away. There was live
music throughout the day
and a talent contest Satur-
day evening. County Com-
missioner Sara Comander
helped emcee that event.
The mission of the Friend-
ship House is to create a
caring, warm and friendly
environment for families af-
fected by any brain-related
disorder. The foundation
will also try to refer families
seeking services locally. The
foundation provides support
for families affected by brain
disorders; provide commu-
nity education on preven-
tion of brain injury and dis-
orders, as well as educate
teenagers on depression
and suicide prevention and
develop an effective com-
munity coalition of various
agencies who serve persons


with such disabilities.
Even though the festival
has passed, the Friendship
'House is still accepting and
encouraging donations to
realize the start of the new
building. Their buy-a-brick
project is one way the pub-
lic can take part in helping
to provide financial sup-
port for services that many


families in our area are des-
perately in need of at this
time. They are also accept-
ing building donations. To

HAPPY FALL


TO YOU

A woman was asked by a coworker,
"What is it like to be a Christian?"
The coworker replied,
"It is like being a pumpkin."
God picks you from the patch, brings you
in, and washes all the dirt off of you.
Then He cuts off the top and scoops
out all the yucky stuff.
He removes the seeds of
doubt, hate, and greed.
Then He carves you a new smiling face
and puts His light inside
of you to shine
for all the world to see."

Two great lessons from


morning and evening


The life of Jesus brings
great lessons for every be-
liever. Remember Mark 1:35:
"And in the morning, rising
up a great while before day,
He went out and departed
into a solitary place, and
there prayed." We have an-
other lesson for our learning,
in Matthew 14:23: "And when
He had sent the multitudes
away, He went up into a
mountain apart to pray: and
when the evening was come,
He was there alone." These
experiences from the life of
Christ could be labeled
"Morning" and "Evening."
Morning. Look at this time
in the life of our Lord. It is
yet dark, a great while before
day, and He spends this time
in prayer to our heavenly
Father. Yonder city is asleep.
And a great while before day
there is a lonely figure' al-
ready at prayer., This time of


By DR. ROBERT M. JAYE
prayer meant preparation for
the day's toil. For the task of
the day, if He had to be ready,
so should we. Martin Luther,
one of the Fathers of the Ref-
ormation once said, "There is
much to do today and I can-


'*.. 2,


not do it without four hours
in prayer."
Morning means strength
for the day, for the day and
its demands.,Each day has its
tasks. We must work from
blue Monday until black Fri-
day. We need strength to
make it to Sunday, and the


renewal of seeking the Lord
with His people at church
and worship.

Evening. Look at this pic-
ture of prayer. See the moun-
tain and the lonely figure.
The great, long shadows of
evening are even covering
the person who kneels there,
a solitary figure. It meant
that He recognized God's
part in the work accom-
plished that day. It meant a
request for God's blessing on
the day's efforts. It meant
thanksgiving for the privi-
lege of service. No day is good
without this evening com-
munion when God looks.
down on His grateful child.
What is the lesson here?
Let each day begin and end
with prayer. Nothing takes
the place of prayer to seal the
best of intentions for the,
Lord's work.

Walton volleyball grabs district win


By PATRICK CASEY
The Walton volleyball
team earned their fourth dis-
trict win of the season on
Thursday as they defeated
the Northview Chiefs in a
four set match last week in
DeFuniak Springs.
Walton jumped out to grab
the first game 25-20 as the
Chiefs struggled to keep up
with Walton's size at the net.


Delaney Bell and Devin
Richardson keyed a 25-22
victory in the second game as
Bell came up with several
timely spikes while
Richardson got hot from the
service line to help Walton
win a squeaker.
Northview turned the
tables in the third game as
Walton ran into trouble with
unforced errors as


Freeport falls to


Liberty County


34-7


Northview's Brittney Th-
ompson got busy at the net
to help the Chiefs force a
fourth game.




-
: .


Walton struggled in the
fourth game of the match,
but got hot late as the team
rallied to end the match with


a 25-21 victory to complete a
season sweep of the Chiefs.
The Braves defeated
Northview in Northview on
September 13 in a five-game
match that saw Walton pull
out a 15-13 win in the fifth
game to steal the match af-
ter losing the first two
games.
Walton struggled in four
games at Gulf Coast Commu-
nity College over the week-
end as Walton dropped
matches to Panama City
Mosley and Bay, as well as


matches to Sneads and Lib-
erty County to stand at 7-12
on the season.
Walton could steal the top
seed in the district if they can
upset Pensacola Catholic on
Thursday, October 11, when
they travel to Pensacola to
face the Crusaders.
Walton will host the Dis-
trict 1, Class 3A volleyball
tournament on October 23-
24 and will likely have to face
Northview a third time in the
semi-finals to earn a playoff
berth.


By PATRICK CASEY
Liberty County quarter-
back Ridge Read threw three
touchdown passes as the host
school used big plays to de-
feat Freeport 34-7 in a Dis-
trict 1, Class A contest.
Read connected with
Leonard DuBuisson on
passes of 56 and 29 yards in
the first half of play for
touchdowns while Terrance
Evans caught a 50-yard
strike to give Liberty County
an 18-7 lead at intermission.
Freeport took the lead in
the contest late in the first
quarter as Colby Thomas
.scooped up a fumble and
rambled 12 yards for a 7-6
lead as the two squads fought
rain in the first half of play.
Freeport (2-3) struggled to
move the football against
Liberty County (5-0) as the
host school added a 1-yard
run by Read in the third


quarter and an 8-yard scam-
per by Kevin McCray in the
final period to finish out the
scoring.
Read was 6-of-13 throwing
the football for 183 yards and
three scores while McCray
led Liberty County on the
ground with 66 rushing
yards.

Colby Thomas managed
36 rushing yards while Cole
Weeks threw for 32 yards on
the night.
' Freeport faces an impor-
tant district game at Jay (3-
1) this week with the contest
set for a 7 p.m. kickoff at
Merle North Stadium in Jay.
Freeport lost to the Roy-
als at home in 2006 as Jay
escaped with a 14-7 victory,
but the Bulldogs captured a
14-13 win in Jay in 2005,
their last trip to face the Roy-
als on their home turf.

Pensacola Catholic defeated
Marianna 22-21. The win
puts Pensacola Catholic in
the driver's seat heading into
an October 19 showdown
with Walton in DeFuniak
Springs. Catholic (2-4) could
wrap up the district with a
win while Walton could guar-
antee no worse than a three-
way tie with a victory over
the Crusaders. David Kooi
tossed two touchdown passes
to help the Crusaders pick up


the Sharks to hold off the Pi-
rates. The loss was devastat-
ing for Sneads playoff hopes
as they are now 1-3 in dis-
trict play while Port St. Joe
is 2-2 overall and 2-0 in Dis-
trict 1, Class A.
Wewahitchka earned
their second win of the year
as the Gators shut out

prove to 1-2 in the district.
Chance Knowles had a five-

added a short run in the
fourth period to rally Jay to

win sees Jay improve to 3-1

play while the Panthers fall
to 1-5 overall and 1-2 in dis-
Strict play.
Chipley turned in the
massacre-of-the-week as the
Tigers took out their frustra-
tion in losing to Walton last
week on Holmes County.


Northview broke a 6-6

half points to defeat Baker

contest. Nikita Myles and
Ferrin Jackson both rushed
for over 100 yards for the
Chiefs and had a.pair of rush-
ing touchdowns apiece as
Northview improved to 3-2
overall and 2-0 in the district.

tory, Sun Sports and the

pionship games in the Dodge

Vernon increased the lead
to 20-7 right before halftime
as Markel Andrews caught a
6-yard scoring pass from
Boyett with 2:52 remaining
in the first half.

Vernon added two more
touchdowns in the second
half as Jerel Peterson scored
on passes of 53 and 75 yards
to turn the game into a run-
away.
South Walton put together
a 92-yard drive in the fourth
quarter, but came up just
short on a 4th-and-11 scam-
per by sophomore quarter-
back Dennis Smith of the
first down.
Vernon could not generate
any running game as the
Yellowjackets managed only
20 rushing yards on the
night, while the Seahawks
moved the ball at times, but
could not score in the red
zone.
South Walton (1-5) will
travel to Choctaw on Friday
for a 7 p.m. kickoff with the
Indians in a non-district con-
test.

Seminoles back in top 25


By CHUCK HINSON
It took Michael Garvin's
43-yard interception return
for a touchdown to kick the
game into high gear as FSU
beat N.C. State, 27-10.
Garvin took the interception
into the end zone for the tie-
breaking score just before
halftime and sparked the
Noles to the win and a 4-1
record.
The Seminoles were lead
by quarterback Xavier Lee,
who ran two yards for the


Seminole's first touch-
down, 2:10 into the game. He
also hit 16 of 28 passes for
257 yards. The combination
of Greg Carr and Lee on the
offense, and Florida State's
notable defense, bumped the
'Noles back into the top 25 at
the number 21 spot.
Carr later caught a 40-
yard touchdown pass in the
fourth quarter to give the
Seminoles a 24-10 lead. It
was Carr's 23-
yard touchdown at Florida


State, tying for fifth place
with FSU former All-Ameri-
can Ron Sellers. He also
caught four passes for 140
yards.
The Seminoles (4-1, 1-1)
record, snapped a string of
eight losses against ACC
rivals. Chuck Amato, former
coach of N.C. State who was
fired last November follow-
ing seven seasons as head
coach, had both an emotional
and joyful game against his
old Alma Mater.


Bulls roll-on, Canes go down


By CHUCK HINSON
It has only been a few
years since the University of
South Florida hit the college
football scene, but today are
getting the respect that the
USC, LSU and U of F teams
have been enjoying for years.
This past weekend, they once
again continued their perfect
winning season as they
fought off and took a leap to
the No. 6 position, after beat-
ing Florida Atlantic, 35-23.
Ben Williams ran for 186
yards and four touchdowns,


while Matt Grothe added 120
yards rushing. He also
racked had a 10-yard scoring
run to break a 7-7 tie in the
middle part of the third quar-
ter. Grothe made it 21-14
with a 33-yard run, followed
by Williams' 54 yard-touch-
down to make the score, 28-
17.
After a Florida Atlantic
touchdown, but a missed
two-point conversion, the
Bulls sealed their victory and
got the thumbs-up from vot-
ers to move into the top six


positions in both polls and
are ranked in the top 10 for
the first time since the uni-
versity introduced their foot-
ball team.
The luck of south Florida
stayed in Florida, as Miami
traveled to Chapel Hill, N
.C., where they took on the
North Carolina Tar Heels.
Miami fought back in the
fourth quarter after being
down 27-0, and came within
a touchdown twice, but were
unable to take the lead and
fell 33-27.

OWC-Beach Community Bank clay


shoot rescheduled for Oct.


With the fall dove season
just around the corner, the
second annual OWC-Beach
Community Bank Sporting
Clay Shoot has been
rescheduled for Saturday,
Oct. 13, at Shoal River Sport-
ing Clays in Crestview. The
event was previously sched-
uled in late September but
delayed due to weather.
Because of the overwhelm-
ing response to the clay
shoot, the event has been
'changed to be two shoots,
both on Oct. 13. The first
shoot begins at 8:30 a.m. and
the second shoot begins at 1
p.m. Proceeds from the
events support the OWC
Raider Athletic Housing Pro-
gram. The morning shoot is
full but several single or
double slots are open in the
afternoon shoot.
"We had limited the origi-
nal field to 18 teams but had
five or six teams on a wait-


ing list, and most have indi-
cated a desire to join us on
the rescheduled Oct. 13 date
- that's why we expanded to
both a morning and after-
noon shoot,", said Jim
Chitwood, co-chairman of the
clay shoot and executive di-
rector of the OWC Founda-
tion. Individuals interested
in joining the afternoon shoot
should contact the OWC
Foundation at 729-5357.
The cost is $50 per person,
which includes shells, re-
freshments, breakfast,
lunch, and door prizes. Ac-
cording to Chitwood, the win-
ning teams will be deter-
mined with scores from both
shoots. Athletes from the
Raiders sports teams and
others will serve as station
pullerss" in the morning and
the afternoon shoots.
With the expanded field for
the shoot, there is a need for
more,door prizes, since there


will now be 12 teams at each
shoot or 96 shooters total.
Chitwood encouraged busi-
nesses and others interested
in prize donations or sponsor-
ship opportunities to contact
him at the OWC Foundation
office.
In between the shoots, the
event will feature a barbeque
lunch and auction at 11:30
a.m. prepared by "Mr.
Barbeque" Chris Hughes and
Chuck Kelley of Kelley's Su-
per Value. Registration

WALTON COUNTY CODE sets specific design standards for CR-30A as a scenic corridor, although those standards are
different from the ones set for the U.S. 98 and U.S. 331 South scenic corridors. Proposed amendments would apply scenic
corridor design standards to CR-83, CR-283, and CR-395 as well.



Public review of Scenic


Corridor standards requested


By DOTTY NIST
"We're talking about ma-
jor changes to the code," said
Design Review Board (DRB)
member Sue Grill.
Grill was referring to pro-
posed amendments affect-
ing Walton County's design
standards for road sections
designated as scenic cor1
riders. These are specific
standards governing build-
ings, landscape. site plans,
and signage on the county
right-of-way and on proper-
ties adjacent to. the desig-
nated roadways.
Currently U.S. 98 and
U.S. 331 south of the bay
are subject to the county's
most detailed standards.
The county has also identi-
fied CR-30A as a scenic cor-
ridor with its own set of code
design standards.
A proposed amendment
would expand the scenic cor-
ridor designation to include
three north-south roadways
in south Walton County as
well: CR-83. CR-283. and
CR-395..


Among the proposed
changes is, a shifting of re-
sponsibility with regard to
variances from scenic cor-
ridor standards. Currently
the DRB is charged with
considering requests for
variances from the Scenic
Corridor standards. One
of the proposed ordinances
would switch that responsi-
bility to the Walton County
Zoning Board of Adjust-
ments (ZBA).
.The proposed language
empowers the ZBA to grant
a variance, from the scenic
corridor requirements if it
would "allow the developer
to create'a unique architec-
tural feature that will en-
hance the corridor."
The DRB reviews propos-
als for new development on
the U.S. 98/U.S., 331 South
scenic corridor for compli-
ance with code standards.
On Oct. 4, the DRB mem-
bers had been requested to
make a recommendation on
the proposed ordinances,.

final decision by the Wal-
ton County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC).
"I'm just one of seven,"
Grill prefaced her comments.
Continuing, she said she
was "very uncomfortable"
with what she perceived as
a "rush to judgment" to get
the amendments approved.
"I'm not sure I understand
the issues," she added.
Grill noted that it has
been approximately five
years since the last large-
scale review and revision of
the .scenic corridor require-
ments. She suggested that,
with the many comments
from the community, arti-
cles and editorials that have
surfaced in recent months
regarding the scenic corri-
dor, the time may have come
for another such review to
be undertaken, in workshop
format with public input.
The workshops would in-
clude the proposed amend-
ments to the scenic corridor
code provisions.
Grill's opinion was sup-


ported by th!e remainder
of. the DRB m embers, with'
all seven members voting
against adoption, at this
time, of the two amendments
considered to have the most
far-reaching e effect.
The members did vote 7-0
in favor of ombI of thd amend-
ments, which sets specific
paint color standards for
buildings on the U.S. 98/U.S.
331 South scenic corridor.
Review of building paint
colors is ciLrrently part of
the DRB's architectural re-
view for niew construction,
and decisions are based on
the goal of a vista that is
free from loudu" or obtrusive
buildings or features.
The amendment makes
that judge ment more objec-
tive by setting a range of
allowable colors from the
"nearly neutral" and pastel
section from a color refer-
ence bool the Munsell Book
of Colors.
The ,clecision whether or
not to s et the public work-
shops requested by the DRB
will be :made by the BCC,


Walton

county to.

address

beach


rights
In the wake of recent
controversy over private
beach signs in the arrest of
a beach goer for trespassing,
Walton County has elected
to develop, an ordinance
e-tal:.lishing customary use
of all 26 miles of Walton
County Beech front.
On Oct. 9, the Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners voted 4-0
to direct staff to draft the
ordinance, which would
be aimed at assuring the
publics ability to ,use the
soft, sandy portion of the
beach based on long-term
traditional use of that area.'
The ordinance, once
drafted, will be, subject
to workshops 'and public
hearings. /
The commissioners
directed staff td research
a procedure whereby
easement for public beach
accessmight be acquired in
return for ad valorem tax
relief.




Yard sale

ordinance

nixed
A yard sale ordinance:.
proposed for Walton
County will get no further
consideration.
On Oct. 9,Walton County
Commissioners voted not;
to take the ordinance to;
its second public hearing,:,
in other words to let the:
proposal die.
County Commission
Chairman Ken Pridgen
said he thought the county
regulating yard sales would
be "a little overbearing."
Several members of the
public also spoke against the
proposedordinance. Onesaid
that neighbors "just need to
.get along," arid others said
they thought problems with
yard sales could be handled
adequately through county
code enforcement.
The ordinance had been
developed by county staff as a
result of citizens' complaints
about being inconvenienced
by their neighbors' weekly
garage sales.
It would have required
county permits for yard
sales and limited them to
four salt- every year.
District 4 Commissioner
Sara Conmander motioned to
drop the p:,r.'pos-d ordinance
before taking it to a second
public hearing. Two hearings
are required for adoption of
an ordinance.
Her motion was approved
in a 4-0 vote.

Master naturalist program open for all .11


By LEAH STRATMANN
The mission of the Flor-
ida Master Naturalist Pro-
gram (FMNP) is to promote
awareness, understanding,
and respect of Florida's nat-
ural world among Florida's
citizens and visitors.
This mission is accom-
plished in part by FMNP
instructors, who teach stu-
dents in the program about
Florida's environment using
science-based information
and intt rpr-.tiv,. techniques
that prepare students to
share their knowledge with
others,
This mission is also ac-
,,,r1i.-i-1', by V\IMNP
graduates, who share their
knowledge with others and
foster p"biii i|pi'- of sustain-
.it'lir.. connectivity, and
biodiversity to assist others
to understand and respect
Florida's natural world as a
community to which we all
belong.
The above appears on
the website HYPERLINK
Shit ttp:/'\\ .maternatural-
ist.ifas.ufl.edu" www.ma-
ternaturalist.ifas.ufl.edu
and is one of the outreach
programs of the University
of Florida. The program is
thriving statewide and is a
non-credited program open
to anybody with an interest
in the unique Florida eco-
system, according to Sheila
Dunning, the commercial
horticultural extension
agent in Okaloosa County,
which oversees the pro-
grams in Okaloosa, Walton
and Santa Rosa Counties.
"This is not a degree seek-
ing venture, this is a public
education program," Dun-
ning said. "We have three
modules: the wetlands, the
coastal and the uplands.
The wetlands covers swamp
areas, the coastal program
covers the beaches and the
uplands cover the forests.
We will be offering the up-
lands module for the first
time in the Panhandle be-
ginning Oct. 29. The pro-


gram continues through
Dec. 17."
Dunning said it is an ex-
cellent idea to complete all
three modules. Each mod-
ule is comprised of 40 hours
of classroom work and typi-
cally the groups meet once a
week for half a day for six or
:seven weeks. "We have done
:intense training where it
:is the entire week, and we
have done every other week-
end. The key is flexibility,"
,she noted.
"Classes are limited to 20
people per class. There are
field trips involved where
we go into the field at look
ait the eco-systems. To com-
plete the class one must do
the classroom work and go
on the three field trips. To
finish the course, partici-
pants are expected to come
up with some sort of educa-
tional program, which can
be used to teach the public.
These projects are shared
statewide. These can be as
si mple as showing how trash
left on the beach impacts the
eco-systems, or trail guides
anrd canoe tracking. There's
no limit as to what can be
done. Coming up with an
educational tool is how the
clas's is completed," Dun-.
ning said.
Walton County resident
Meg Nelson has completed
the coastal program module
and plans to take all three
of the courses. Nelson is the
project manager for the E.L.
Wilson Biophilia Center.
part of Nokuse Plantation.
Biophilia is awakening the
love of nature that everyone
has within them.
"I did the coastal system
and I plan to do the other
two. It gave me more of an
in-depth understanding of
how coastal systems, work
plus the resources right
at my fin gertips to answer
questions: I might have or
understand something bet-
ter. There! was so much in-
formation coming at us it
was not possible to absorb

FESTIVAL FROM FRONT


ternoon and wrapped up on
Sunday. Festival officials
expected the three-day at-
tendance to be in the thou-
sands.

Mother Nature cooper-
ated for the bulk of the
weekend except for a strong
thunder shower that blew
in off of the Gulf of Mexico


just as the musical group
Ambrosia was finishing up
their performance Sat;ur-
day afternoon. The ensuing
storm sent vendors and veisi-
tors alike scurrying for sh el-
ter from the rain.
The weather did thin o ut
the crowds a bit, but many
a hardy soul stayed on to
hear the musical group A t-


lanta Rythum Section (ARS)
which was'delayed approxi-
mately two hours. Most
of the vendors were back
in business after the brief
weather interlude.
"We came to see ARS,"
said Defuniak Springs resi-
dent Russell Yon. "And I
am not leaving because of a
little rain."


Niceville resident Allan
Horne was equally unfazed
by the weather conditions. "I
am going to keep my eye on
the lightning," said Horne.
"But a little water never
hurt anyone."

it all. These biologists did
not expect us to memorize
all this stuff and get tested
on it, but simply to learn
about it in general with the
resources for more study if
we wished.
"I was able to network
with people interested in
doing the same type of work
I'm doing all over Northwest
Florida. I've been able to
reach over and get resources
from people in Tally and to
share personal experiences.
It made it much more per-
sonal than sitting in class.
There was a lot of interac-
tion between people. We
shared a lot," Nelson said.
"It was not intense at all. It
was a relaxed way to learn.
It was just right. I recom-
mend it to anyone."
Nelson created a power
point presentation of is-
sues relating to gopher tor-
toises as her educational
tool, which will be shared by
those all over the state.
Dunning said 100 per-
cent of the proposed tools
by participants- are now in
use statewide. "One of our
participants in the wetlands
class came up with a flyer
for homeowners explaining
the importance of the wet-
lands," she noted.
"A lot of the participants
have a background in one of
the areas, such as commer-
cial fishing, but they never
really thought about how
the plants on the shoreline
had an impact about the fish
in the water. Those areas
are the nurseries for the fish
they are actually harvest-
ing. The classes give them
an idea of how the three sys-
tems work together. Most of
the education comes from
the field trips when people
can see the impact. With
the coastal system we went
to the Gulfarium and got up
close and personal with the
animals. We have gone out
in boats to see the plankton.
It makes it really personal
for them when they can


have. that connection. The
seine fishing and swamp
walks which show the diver-
. sity are really eye opening,"
Dunning emphasized.
Dunning said the en-
tire program is shared and
picked up by agents and
trained people throughout
the state. "It is an award-
winning program. Florida
is so much different in dif-
ferent parts of the state, so
educating people to realize
the impact is phenomenal."
The program has been op-
erational since 1999.
"Personally, professional-
ly and scientifically, this is
a very rewarding program,"
Nelson said.

The cost of the program
is $225 for each module. For
more information or to reg-
ister, call 850-689-5862 or
visit the website, www.ma-
ternaturalist.ifas.ufl.edu.

By JEFFREY POWELL
The Mattie Kelly Fine &
Performing Arts Center at
Okaloosa-Walton College is
in the habit of having new
and interesting exhibits on
a monthly basis. Their "Tac-
tile Traces-Fine Art Quilts"
exhibit is no exception to
this rule.
, The exhibit features the
work of three accomplished
artists whose work has
never before been shown at
the same time in the same
place. Each artist has exhib-
ited widely in both national
and international venues.
Katherine Allen is a
printmaker using cloth, pig-
ment, and stitching to speak
to the connections between
nature and culture. She
combines an interest in ab-


straction, color and organic
form to create quasi-narra-
tive mixed media construc-
, tions.
Eleanor McCain works in
an associative construction
format, which uses color
in graphic grid structures.
By virtue of their scale her
pieces are simultaneously
assertive and comforting in.
their impact.
Barbara Walter uses the
classical technique .of re-
verse applique' to execute
decidedly contemporary
graphic depictions of natu-
ral forms and phenomenon.


Photographic images are
stripped down to emphasize
bare essence, size enlarged
and color limited to manifest
the power of abstraction.
Having the three styles
displayed in the same gal-
lery provides the visitor a
unique chance to study and
compare the diversity of the
artists work.
The Mattie Kelly Arts
Center is on the Niceville
campus of Okaloosa-Walton
College at 100 College Bou-
levard. To contact the gal-
leries for more information,

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD THURSDAY, OCTOBER 11, 2007

Entertainment


( bdsSI )w


Art, mu-
sic and
theater
have al-
ways been -
a large
part of
Walton
County
tourism.
Within
the month of Octo-
ber, art festivals, lo-
cal theatrical pro-
ductions and other
cultural events, are
taking place all over
the Emerald Coast.
Thousands are mak-
ing their return from
all over the nation.

This past weekend, thou-
sands turned out for the 2007
Destin Seafood Festival. De-
spite flooding rains on Sat-
urday and an early call for
the show that day, thousands
more returned on Sunday to
beautiful skies and numer-
ous artisans and crafters.
Drenched by heavy down-
pours, the festival was called
early Saturday afternoon,
but that was not before thou-
sands crowded onto the
events grounds to hear live
music, see arts and crafts
and, of course, enjoy hun-
dreds of pounds of Gulf Coast
seafood.
With each weekend in Oc-
tober, an art festival, or
event, can be found any-


where you turn along the
Florida Emerald Coast.
This weekend, the Cultural
Arts Association's Flutterby
Festival returns to Gulf
Place. More than 50 artists
and crafters will take part in
the annual event that cel-
ebrates the return of the
monarch butterfly.
Paintings, pottery, hand-
made jewelry, hand crafted
furniture and other artistic
treasures can be found on
both Saturday and Sunday.
Live entertainment will be
provided throughout the day,
and all of the focus is on chil-
dren in the arts.
For more information
about the CAA Flutterby
Festival and the scholarships
they provide, call 622-5970.
Continuing this weekend,
"Grit & Grace" will entertain,
educate and bring back
memories for many Walton
County residents as they
present "Songs of the Home
Grown Legends."
Songs by local musicians
Pappy Neal McCormick and
Potter Brown will be show-
cased throughout the produc-
tion. Stories ofthier lives and
lessons will be acted and


sung on the
stage for the
final week-
| end, by nu-
|I merous local
1 S performers.
The event
takes place at
Freeport High
[ '/.0" School Oct. 12
and 13, begin-
ning at 7 p.m.
and then a
Sunday mati-
nee on Oct. 14, at 2 p.m. For
more information and ticket
reservations, call 835-2032.
Looking ahead to next
weekend, art and wine en-
thusiasts will get a chance to
experience both at the an-
nual Chautauqua Vineyards
Harvest Festival, taking
place Oct. 20 at the winery
located on U.S. 331 in DeFu-
niak Springs.
A variety of wine selections
will be offered from the fall
harvest, as well as a tasting
of the newest bottled bever-
ages. Live entertainment will
be provided throughout the
day and a variety of local and
regional artists will take part
in the artist's market.
For more information
about the Harvest Festival
event, call the winery at 892-
5887.
Enjoy the cooler weather,
venture out on the streets
with less tourist traffic, and
get a taste of the art, music
and cultural activities that
Walton County has to offer.
Once again, people from all
over the nation are looking
to Florida's Emerald Coast
for a place to get away or re-
locate to because of all that
our ever-growing county has
to offer.


COUNTRY SINGER, COMPOSER AND PRODUCER, Jeffrey Steele rocked the house at
the Rosemary Beach's annual Tunes by the Dunes benefit concert this past weekend. Despite
torrential downpours, more than 200 people endured the weather for the charitable cause.

During the summer, county

discuss the top funding pri-

on tours to various Walton

first-hand the significance


federal funding can make.
"We will continue to keep
our county's top funding pri-

hopeful we can secure the
necessary federal funds to
improve the quality of life for
