Paxton

Town

Council

talks water,

wells
By BRUCE COLLIER
The Oct. 9 meeting of
the Paxton Town Council
.was sparsely attended, with
council members addressing
the status of various ongo-
ing matters, particularly
the state of the contract the
city has for construction of
wells. All members of the
Council Bobby Kemp, Ann
Sexton, Bill McRae, Jenice
Armstrong, Joe Melton, and'
Mayor Wanda Smith were
present, as was City At-
torney Loriann Bytell. The
meeting came to order at 7
p.m.
Following approval of last
month's minutes, bills, and
of a fee waiver for a citizen's
water bill, the Council pro-
ceeded to its main agenda.
First up was a report from
Bob Jones, administrator
of the Community Develop-
ment Block Grant (CDBG).
Jones advised the Council
that the CDBG requires
drafting and implementa-
tion of a complaint procedure
for handicap accessibility is-
sues. The Council agreed to
implement an ordinance.
City ,Engineer Charles
Peters then spoke on the
status of construction of a
water valve and well. The
original completion date
was to have been Oct. 11.
Peters said that the well is
nearly complete, but that
the contract contains a liq-
uidated damages provision,
allowing the city to receive

Interlocal school

agreement could

increase

development costs


By LEAH STRATMANN
As mandated by the state
of Florida to be accomplished
before December of this year,
the planning department of
Walton County presented
the planning commissioners
with a model to provide for
school facility planning and
for school concurrency fees
if needed.
The model essentially sets
up a process so that when a
development is proposed,
it will, be forwarded to the
school board so the school
board can assess the impact
of the project on the ,school
system. They can be aware
of what is headed their way
in terms of potential new
students and take that into
account in their planning. If
a school is already near ca-
pacity, they can assess pro-
portionate fair share to the
project.
This has the potential of
adding hundreds of -thou-
sands of dollars to a project,
as these fees must be paid
up front. The entire initia-
tive has been fueled by the
classroom-size amendment,
which wvas passed by a ma-
jority of Florida voters in
2002. The planning commis-
sion emphasized that coun-

will seek funding for the
center through community

The center will seek a

fee from families and a $15
fee for the after-school pro-
gram, Henley explained, but
no child will be turned away
if parents are unable to pay
those fees.

together the many agencies
and practitioners who re-
spond to domestic violence
cases in the Northwest Flor-
ida area.
This council is a multi-
disciplinary effort formed


to strengthen the links be-
tween individual agencies
and general systems to in-
clude, but not limited to law
enforcement, prosecution,
the court system, victim
advocacy, mental health, of-
fender treatment, probation,
health care, and child pro-
tection. During the month
of October, the DVCC works
with faith-based organiza-
tions, school art programs
and local healthcare provid-
ers to help promote domes-
tic violence awareness in
our community.
The year DVCC is also
co-sponsoring a 'regional
conference on Nov. 2, "Mak-
ing Connections: Support-


ing Young Children and
Their Families." The DVCC

County committee is work-
ing towards helping start
and sustain a domestic
violence shelter in Walton

Who knew some of San-
ta's elves wear green uni-
forms and drive white patrol
cars? The Walton County
Sheriffs Office (WCSO)
Santa Patrol is gearing
up to prepare to make this
Christmas an enjoyable one
for some of Walton County's
children. To start the sea-
son off, Cyndi Mount, De-
partment Manager for Wal-
Mart in DeFuniak Springs,
presented Capt. Eddie Far-
ris with a check on behalf
of Wal-Mart to help make
things better for local chil-
dren.
For almost 20 years, the
WCSO has joined with local
citizens and merchants to
make the program as suc-
cessful as possible. The San-
ta Patrol has helped hun-
dreds of children in Walton
County in the last decade
alone have a little brighter
Christmas morning. While
some Santa Patrol members
agree that some people do
take advantage of it, they
know that most are in real
need. This does not discour-
age them. They know it is
more important to try to
help as many families as
they can.
Farris said, "I know
the program works. I am
very confident about it. We
all enjoy what we do and
deep down inside knowing
that we help one kid smile
makes our Christmas even
better." He added, "Occa-
sionally, we receive a letter
asking for personal items
such as clothes, toothpaste,
or shampoo. We try to get
whatever we can to help a
family out."
The Santa Patrol is ask-
ing for the public's support
through gifts of toys or
through monetary dona-
tions. The goal this year
is to provide toys and gifts
to as many local children
as possible. They can't do
it without public support.
The Santa Patrol asks the
public to help by dropping
off new toys at the WCSO
in DeFuniak Springs or the
substations in Santa Rosa
Beach or Paxton.
Those who wish to write


a check should make the
check payable to "Wal-Mart/
Walton County Sheriffs Of-
fice" and mail it to Walton
County Sheriffs Office, P.O.


Box 1388, DFS, FL. 32435,
Attn: Capt. Farris. For ad-
ditional information, con-
tact Capt. Farris at (850)

COA food program


reduce

By CHRIS MANSON
The Walton County Coun-
cil on Aging (COA) recently
eliminated 230 people from
its frozen meal program, ac-
cording to Director Kay Bra-
dy. This service falls under
the COA's Meals on Wheels
program and is designed for
individuals who do not live
near one of six congregate
meal sites or qualify for
Meals on Wheels itself.
This decision followed a
requirement from the state
legislature that the Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC) cut
$5.6 million from its bud-
get.
"County operations had to
tighten their belts," Finance
Director Bill Imfeld said.
He added that the BCC's
funding for arts and culture
programs were eliminated
completely. Most non-profit
organizations' funding was
cut in half, including the
COA. But Imfeld and others
are unsure as to why any of
the COA's nutrition services
would need to be reduced.
Prior to the BCC approv-
ing the budget for the fiscal
year that began this month,
Citizen Services Director
Ken Little gathered infor-
mation about the BCC's
;contributions to non-profit
'organizations. "The board
gives general assistance,"
said Little. ."But with the
budget constraints, we now
,have to ask, 'How much do
you need, and why?"'
Brady said the BCC re-
ceives regular reports from
'the COA on how the money
'is used. She said all of the
money received from the
county goes to the meal pro-
grams.
The COA requested
$145,000 from the BCC and


- BCC asks, Why?'


received $75,000. The BCC
arrived at this amount be-
cause of a requirement to
match federal and state
grants. During a budget
workshop in July, COA
Chief Financial Officer Lar-
ry Moose told the BCC the
agency would have to cut
some meals for the elderly.
"We didn't understand,"
said County Administrator
Ronnie Bell.
Bell said the BCC was
aware of the many programs
offered by the COA. Shop-
ping assistance, home ser-
vices, and home care for the
elderly are among the eight
programs the COA oversees
- but the COA decided to fo-
cus on meals.
"The BCC didn't want the
elderly not to get meals,"
said Bell. He said Ken Little
researched all of the COA's
funding sources for meals,
and determined the BCC's
local match to be $42,957,
which was less than the
$75,000 approved by the
BCC. Bell said he and the
BCC felt this amount cov-
ered all of the COA's meal
programs.
Brady said the COA re-
ceives additional funding
from the state, the United
Way, Medicaid, private do-
nations, and grants. She
said the BCC accounted for
19 percent of the agency's
overall budget. Three per-
cent comes from charitable
organizations. The remain-
der comes from state and
federal grants.
When asked why some
frozen meals were cut, Bra-
dy replied, "There was no
other money to move."
Imfeld said all of Little's
figures came directly from
the COA. "I reviewed them
with him, and I'm quite con-


fident it was accurate," said
Imfeld. "For the past three
budget cycles, we've been
asking all the (non-profit)
entities to think about be-
coming more self-sufficient.
I certainly would not want
the elderlyto be deprived of
food."
Little said at the start of
each fiscal year, the county
-sends out a budget call ask-
ing non-profit organizations
for information about how
they operate and what ser-
vices they offer the citizens
of Walton County.
He added that other non-
profit groups seemed to be
adapting to the BCC's grant
reductions. Little noted that
the figures he submitted to
the BCC came directly from
the COA budget informa-
tion submitted by Brady and
Dottie Peoples of the North-
west Florida Area Agency
on Aging.
"The numbers were in
agreement," said Little.
"The Area Agency on Aging
thought the funding was ad-
equate."
There is a section in the
county's contract with the
COA stating that any excess
funds provided by the coun-
ty must be returned. Little
said this has never occurred
with any non-profit orga-
nization since he became
citizen services director in
2001. "Nobody ever turned
any money back in," he said.
"They find a way to spend
it.
I'm clueless as to why we
are where we are." Little
added that the BCC has
been funding the COA since
1988.
Brady said a scoring sys-
tem was used to determine
who would be removed from
the frozen meal program.
Those who scored below the
cutoff were dropped. Brady
said the scoring system used
was based on individual
need. She did not elaborate
on. the scoring system, but
did say that nearly two-


thirds of the participants -L
had been dropped. Figures why 15 mi
indicate that 230 out of 324
recipients had been declined trust t
the frozen meals. CTr
The options for those elim- 0 1
inated from the frozen meal
program include paying for
meals a box of five complete
meals costs, $14 or getting
on a waiting list "as other
funds become available,"
said Brady. So far, none of
those dropped have chosen
this option.
Although the agency is
monitored by the Northwest
Florida Area Agency on Ag- Charles Lawson, Agei
Florida Area Agency on Ag- 1225 US Highway 331 S
ing, Brady said decisions De Funiak Springs, FL 32

PERSONAL COMMENTS

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


Faster than a


speeding bullet

By RON KELLEY
Although the quote has been ascribed to both Mark
Twain and Will Rogers, it was actually right after the Civil
War that Judge Gideon J. Tucker of New York noted that
"No man's life, liberty or property are safe while Congress
is in session."
I couldn't agree more. The same is true about the Florida
Legislature. As of Tuesday, they were busy playing politi-
cal football with our money over the highly controversial
property tax amendment bill. You'll recall that a couple of
weeks ago, a Florida judge ruled that the proposed ballot
language for the bill was confusing and struck down the
proposed bill. Normally, that wouldn't have been a prob-
lem. Legislators would have simply put in clearer language
and we'd have voted on it at the polls in January.
Yet, with the deadline fast approaching for getting any
amendment on the ballot, why would Rubio, Sansom &
Company decide that it would be easier to start over from
scratch rather than simply changing the ballot wording?
Republican Senator Mike Bennett said that if the true
ramifications of that bill were widely known, "It would
never pass. (They) aren't going to give up on a sure thing."
Bennett was obviously right. On Tuesday, new propos-
als were flying back and forth across the aisles faster than
a Chinese ping-pong tournament, and just as easy to fol-
low. Faster than a speeding bullet, able to leap tall objec-
tions with a single bound, round and round they go where
they stop, nobody knows.
The problem with the original amendment was that we,
the people, had too much time to examine it and discover
its dangerous flaws.
Tuesday, the Rubio & Sansom band of sleight-of-hand
artists were hard at work, urging frantic legislators to ap-
prove something quickly, hopefully leaving no time for close
inspection. Rubio and Sansom are also hoping that we'll
forget that they were the very same people who carefully
put together the last plan and delivered it to the legisla-
tors at the last possible moment, successfully limiting any
challenges. That plan worked beautifully in the Legisla-
ture, but failed with the public, thankfully, who went over
it with a fine-tooth comb. However, it looks like they are
up to their old tricks again.
Rep. Curtis Richardson said, "There are people saying
that you need to slow the train down. Well, this is the bul-
let train and it's halfway to China."
However, Rep. Stan Mayfield said, "We don't need to see
the numbers! It will have a huge and revolutionary im-
pact."
Excuse me, did he say we don't need to see the num-
bers? Was he kidding or just out of his mind?
Near the end of "The Wizard of Oz," we hear the boom-
ing voice of the wizard telling Dorothy and the rest to "pay
no attention to that man behind the curtain." Well, allow
me to pull the curtain back and show you what's hiding
there.
As a part of this brand new proposal, legislators have
agreed to raise school property taxes by $500 million next
spring. Same old shenanigans, I see, still robbing Peter to
pay Paul. Whatever slight gain (if any) you receive from
this property "tax cut" will be more than made up by the
school tax increase. Even worse, the bill would also give
the Legislature unlimited authority to control local taxes,
while doing nothing to limit their own tax-and-spend au-
thority.
For more nearly two decades, the state has basked in
the glow of runaway property values ana unrestrained de-
velopment, yet in a dazzling display of the pot calling the
kettle black, Ray Sansom (a former county commissioner)
actually had the gall to say out loud, "Local governments
are the reason we are sitting here today. They didn't have
to raise their taxes."
Sure, Ray. You're with the government and you're just
here to help.

Editor:
I read the guest column by J.B. Hillard. I also read the con-
trasting view of the assistant editor, Bruce Collier. Mr. Hillard
column speaks of experience and Mr. Collier does not. Mr.
Collier's slant is that we are picking on them and let them
be. Language "endangered?" I think not. Please read on.
I moved up here three years ago from Miami and have been
reading article after article on illegal immigration. I have not
expressed my opinion because I did not feel I had a right to do
so, being a newcomer. But I cannot, in good conscience hold
back any longer.
Let me give you a perspective of what is slowly going to
happen: we start by "helping" the illegal's first by us learning
Spanish so that we can communicate with them. This is a grave
mistake. Because once we begin, they no longer have to learn
to speak our language. We now speak theirs, but you say they
will learn ours. No, they won't. There are Cubans in Miami
that have lived there twenty years or more and don't speak a
word of English. My neighbor was like that.
In Richmond, West Virginia, they are going to print "safety"
information in Spanish. So now why should they learn En-
glish? We are printing information for them in Spanish. Other
county governments will follow suit. In Miami, just about ev-
erything the government does is it prints in both English and
Spanish. (This was done by a lawsuit filed on the Cuban's be-
half.)
Just about everything that is purchased at hardware stores,
such as Ace and Lowe's and Home Depot, the items have in-
structions on use and assembly in Spanish. No need for En-
glish there.
Do you see where we are going so far? They are forcing us
to communicate in their language. We are not given a choice.
In Miami, most of the Cubans there would tell you, that
they are here temporarily. They are waiting for Castro to die
so that they can go back to their homeland and resume their
lives. Some influential and well-to-do Cubans already have
plans drawn up and ready to take over lands and businesses
when Castro does die. The illegal immigrants are of the same
mind set. They are here to get everything that they can get
and eventually go back to Mexico. They are sending billions of
dollars back to their families, which are not benefiting us.
In Miami, all exams for driver's licenses are in English and
Spanish. The biggest irony is when you go to vote. You step
into the booth and you can vote for an American president in
Spanish. Unless this is reversed, this will happen here. Make
no mistake about it.
How would you feel being a stranger in your own
country? How would you feel being told, "If you don't like it,
move!" How would you feel not being able to walk in most of
the stores or restaurants and be totally understood? Being
bilingual in Miami meant that I had to learn Spanish in order
to communicate but they did not have to learn English. That
is the trend that we are following up here.
The churches are tailoring their service in Spanish. Why
not keep the service in English and tailor the services so that
the services would be more understood by the immigrants.
There are more churches giving Spanish to us than there are
giving English lessons to the immigrants.
This editorial may sound biased, and in some ways it may
be, but I have lived it and been through it. I can see it coming
here. This is Miami 20 years ago. It changes by imperceptible
degrees. Once you realize it, it will be too late. Unless we say
enough, we will be taken over without ever firing a shot. Read
Pat Buchanan's book, "The Death of the West" and you will
see the parallels and how shockingly real it is becoming.

Editor,
Walton County is going down the tubes, quickly. Years ago
someone said, "Where's the beef?" Well, the beef needs re-
called. Our government today needs to stop thinking about
themselves and their own projects and 'start remembering
the citizens, taxpayers that depend on them.
We pay their paychecks but that does not seem to be af-
fecting these commissioners. It seems we pay them to do
their own projects. Can anyone point out one thing that
any commissioner is doing for the people and not the devel-
oper or themselves? These guys are starting ways to be able
to get around the state on all rules and land use changes so
that they can have all control on us and our land uses. And
if they will not code enforce the rules already on the books,
as written, do you think they will enforce themselves or their
rules?
We live in a county that acts like they cannot stop an ille-
gal business, so instead, they give them consent agreements
or special exceptions. I hope everyone has read last week
that the county code enforcement caught a guy violating all
the rules and last week had to take him to the code board
that also found him guilty. So they gave him a consent agree-
ment. What is THAT? A consent agreement is
a free pass, and the county's blessing to continue, no fines,
nothing. Not even a stop-work or "get a development order."
This, after he was found guilty.
Remember this if you get caught doing something wrong,
or if you want to do something wrong. If code enforcement
comes your way, just laugh when they drive up. It i not.
really funny, but they are. You now have a right to a' con-
sent agreement too. As many as you want, get one for your
brother, too. They cannot pick and choose who gets one, it's
one for all. Ask your lawyer.
Don't be discriminated against by your own county. Watch
out yard sellers. Walton County will come out and close
down your lemonade stand and your yard sale, but will give
a real violator a consent agreement. Yard sale permits, did
you hear about that? Anyway I guess if you're going to vio-
late the codes, do it big. Also you're not hearing any nega-
tives.about our government from our newspapers, but there
is plenty of stories to be told, they are just not being re-
ported. If you look at the minutes of a county commissioner's
'meeting, you're not going to be able to see what really hap-
pened so most reporters are not getting the stories. We are
going to start our own newspaper and could use editors,
investor and journalist. Anyone experienced with an inter-
est get up with us. We are. going to tell it like it is, what
really happened, it is interesting and it will sell papers and
advertisements.
There is one story we all need to watch. Walton County is
stealing property rights on Rock Hill road that needs code
enforcement, but instead they are taking a residential land
use area where good people live and call home. Walton
County is allowing borrow pits that destroy the land and
the area to be allowed in that area. Not legally, but whom is
going to stop them? If the Walton County government can
do this to them, what land use can't they come into and put
whatever into your neighborhood? They are doing it all over
now. They're working on home occupancies so no neighbor-
hood is safe from any type business. Think you're safe? Think
again.

CLARIFICATION:
Due to a clerical erro/; the last portion of the guest edito-
rial by J.B. Hillard (10/11) was omitted from his guest edi-
torial on illegal immigration. Here is the missing portion.
The entire commentary is available by request. 77Te Herald-
Breeze regrets the error and any confusion it may have caused.
Editor
How much is America willing 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 illegal aliens." There are many other tools that can be
used that are on the books, but these three would make a
significant dent in the illegal population. Many would de-
port themselves!
Current efforts to build a 700-mile fence, hire more bor-
der enforcement personnel, and improve virtual observation
are part of increased border control. However, if history holds
true, the government will never completely fund the fence
and we will see only a few miles here and there. History has
been the same for increased personnel authorize them, but
never get around to funding! Let's hope we see a change is
this paradigm.
A reality that we can not deny is the demographic change
taking place in Walton County and DeFuniak Springs. The
job market that attracts cheap, illegal labor, the magnet of a
sanctuary for illegal aliens, and a system that requires a
free education and medical treatment, all contribute to these
changing times. The illegal alien invasion has found us and
is expected to grow.
If you gave little notice to the article series or would like
to read them again, I bet if you stopped by the Herald-Breeze
office, they would give you a copy of the full series.

sister, Jennifer Hagan,
explained their mission to
the club. Visiting Angels
provides living assistance
services, allowing seniors to
remain in their own homes
while receiving the medical
assistance they need.
At a later meeting, Rodney
Skinner described his
invention, the Quickie On-


the-Go Flavored Tongue-
Tool Mouth Cleaner.
Skinner, accompanied by
his wife, Maria, appeared
on the television program

Change for Children


All of the schools in the
Walton County School Dis-
trict will be participating in
the "Change for Children"
drive Oct. 15-19. The coin
drive is being coordinated
by school leaders, Walton
County Retired Educators'
Association and Children in
Crisis. Funds will be used to
assist local children served
b:y The Children's Neighbor-
hood with clothing, school
supplies and basic needs..
All funds remain in Okaloo-
sa and Walton County.


"The project brings aware-
ness to children of all ages
about real community needs
and how they can make a
difference in someone's life,"
said Gail Smith, retired ad-
ministrator. .
The Children in Crisis
Organization is currently
building "The Children's
Neighborhood" in Fort
Walton Beach to provide
an emergency shelter and
four new foster homes for
the abused, neglected, and
abandoned children in both


Okaloosa and Walton coun-
ties. Currently, there is a
severe shortage of foster
homes in the area. Opening
soon, The Children's Neigh-
borhood will help ensure
that all of the children in
the community have a place
to call home. Future plans
are to build additional fos-
ter homes here in Walton
County.

For more specific infor-
mation, visit www.children-
incrisisfl.org.


COMMUNITY CALENDAR
There is a push to revitalize the American Legion post in Freeport and eventually the
post that was in DeFuniak Springs. We are trying to get the word out to all the veterans
in both communities.
We will be having a membership drive Nov. 17 at Kelly's Super Value in Freeport.

Jobs Plus will be hosting a Basic Internet Class for all community residents interested

Tobacco companies

continue to target youth


The 1998 legal settlement
between the states and the
tobacco companies prohib-
ited the tobacco companies
from taking "any action, di-
rectly or indirectly, to target
youth... in the advertising,
promotion or marketing of
tobacco products." However,
since the settlement, the
tobacco companies have in-
creased their cigarette mar-
keting expenditures by 125
percent to a record $15.1
billion a year, or $41.5 mil-
lion a day, according to the
Federal Trade Commission.
According to COPE Cen-
ter prevention counselor
Karen Alessio, much of this
marketing is still targeted
at kids. "Advertisers use dif-
ferent techniques to entice
youth to purchase all types of
tobacco products, which now
includes not only cigarettes
but smokeless tobacco and
candy flavored cigarettes,"
she said. R.J. Reynolds, the
same company that once
marketed cigarettes to kids
with a cartoon character,
Joe Camel, has launched a
series of flavored cigarettes,
including a pineapple and
coconut-flavored cigarette
called "Kauai Kolada" and
a citrus-flavored cigarette
called "Twista Lime." In
November 2004, they in-
troduced Camel "Winter
Blends" in flavors including
"Winter Warm Toffee" and
"Winter MochaMint." Brown
& Williamson has intro-
duced flavored versions of its
'Kool cigarettes with names
like "Caribbean Chill,"
"Midnight Berry," "Mocha
Taboo" and "Mintrigue."
The U.S. Smokeless Tobac-
co Company is marketing
snuff tobacco with flavors
including berry blend, mint,
wintergreen, vanilla cherry,
and an apple blend. Brown


& Williamson has also pro-
moted its Kool cigarettes
with hip-hop music themes
and images that have par-
ticular appeal to African-
American youth.
Alessio said many still
continue the fight against
tobacco companies targeting
today's youth. Several state
attorneys general have sued
tobacco companies for vio-
lating the state settlement's
prohibition on targeting
kids. It is up to our commu-
nities, teachers, and par-


ents to educate our children
on the different techniques
that advertisers are using
to target our children. For a
list of tricky techniques visit

able as part of the PALS

Prevention Program from

ect that will, so he pays and
the other one does not. Did
the legislature mandate un-
even treatment between de-
velopers?" There was a cho-
rus of yeses from the board,
and county planners in the
room.
Tom Blackshear, the Wal-
ton County school district
facilities planner, said the
boundaries are very tight
for assessing fees.
In a story written earlier
this year, Wayne Miller, the
supervisor of administra-
tion and operations for the
school district explained the
assessment structure.
"A student station costs
the county about $25,000.
The concurrency law states
a level of service has to be
maintained to offset the im-
pact. Basically this multi-
plier is the way that we de-
termine what the impact is
going to be. Developers will
be required to provide either
land or funds at $25,000 per
student so the school district
can keep up." Miller also
pointed out the $25,000 per
student does not take into
account the increased cost
of acquiring more teachers
and the difficulty of recruit-
ing teachers due to the lack
of affordable housing in the
area.
Miller 'said the concur-
rency fees were based on a
student multiplier number.
This number was reached
by collecting census data,
birth rates and "a, host of
other considerations. With
these we have come up with
a multiplier to determine
the impact of new students
on the school, which is .99
per 100 for the south part
of the county, and that can
be further defined into el-
ementary, middle or high
school students," he said.
The multiplier for the north
end of the county is .38 per

100 students.
Darrel Barnhill, speaking
as a school board member,
addressed the commission-
ers. "This is absolutely a
last ditch effort if the school
board fails to plan adequate-
ly. We are planning to make
sure this doesn't happen
because we are already ex-


tracing $18 million a year
for new school construction.
I don't expect ever to see the
first dollar collected from
this plan. The school board
has never authorized the
assessment of any develop-
ment. Right now we have
adequate capacity. To my
knowledge the schools have

Con missioner Tom Pat-
ton said, "I think where this
really really hurts is if an
area gets hot all of the sud-
den and there are several
developments proposed.
This promotes little proj-
ects instead of well-planned
and well-organized large
projects."D
"Any way you look at
this, it stinks," commented
Commissioner Tom Terrell.
"We have to put pressure
on the state legislature and
let them know this is unac-
ceptable. I understand why
developers fear this. The po-
tential is there for someone
to get hammered. This can
kill a development. Even if
you say if has never hap-
pened, if you pass this, the
potential is there."
Pat Blackshear said the
planning department had
little choice in the matter.
"I have faith enough in our
school board that I don't see
them allowing this assess-
ment to happen. It should
help the school board to stay
ahead of a crisis situation,

not done with roads, which

not made a payment re-
quest lately, nor a request
for extension of time. Near-

the Council, but said that
the contractor might seek

the Council consult with an

needed additional informa-

Bytell advised the Council
that the Code Enforcement

permitted to inspect such
hookups. City employees
should not attempt to enter

might be considered biased,
she said. It was agreed to
notify the Code Enforce-
ment officers.
Armstrong reported that
the city's cemetery looks
much better, but more
cleanup work remains to be
done.
McRae said he had seen
poles stored in batting cages
on the city's ball field. "They
shouldn't be there," he said,
and suggested auctioning
them or giving them to the
county. He promised to pur-
sue the matter. McRae also
said he was talking to the
owner of traffic blocks at
Lakewood Park, and was
looking into acquiring some
to use at various places in
Paxton.
Sexton warned the Coun-
cil that a number of area
churches had had their out-
side air conditioner units
stolen. The units contain
copper tubing, which the
thieves strip out and sell.
Sexton asked the other

ers, including the Palms
of Freeport, are pressing
ahead toward completion.
This town-home develop-


ment is located on the west

too far from the Freeport El-
ementary School.


According to sales asso-
ciate Nathan Abbott, the
developer, Summit Develop-

Gospel duo


ascends


music chart


By CHRIS MANSON

DeFuniakSprings na-
tives Robert McMillan
and James Singletary
have known each other
since 1984, when they
won a talent contest at
Walton High School as
a country act. Now, un-
der the moniker Robert
& James, they're per-
forming gospel music
to growing acclaim.
Last September, the
duo finished recording
"Standing in the Sun,"
eight original Single-
tary songs featuring
McMillan on lead vo-
cals, Somehow, the re-
cordings made it to the
president of the Chris'-
tian Country Music
Association (CCMA) in
Nashville. This led to
McMillan and Single-
tary signing with the
promotion company
HGM.
"Don't Tell Me He's
Not Real" was released
as the album's first
single to Nashville ra-
dio last month. Fred
Bacher, an influen-
tial radio personality
at Dothan, AL., radio
station WDJR started
playing the song and
interviewed the duo on
his "Son Country" pro-
gram.
The single debuted at
No. 10 on Bacher's "Son
Country," which serves
as an indicator for the


CCMA's national "Pow-
ersource" chart.
McMillan and Single-
tary have been booked
around the local area
for the past two weeks
at churches and festi-
vals. But the big news
is that the two have
been invited to per-
form in November at
a showcase during the
CCMA's Inspirational
Country Music awards.
"All the big wheels will
be there," said Single-
tary, citing country-to-
gospel crossover art-
ists like Randy Travis,
Charlie Daniels, and
Josh Turner.
Like those artists,
the music of Robert
& James attempts to
reach mainstream au-
diences. 'We're not
singing to the choir,"
said Singletary.
The duo are scheduled
to appear at the Walton
County Fair on Satur-
day, Oct. 20. "Stand-
ing in the Sun" was re-
corded over a year ago
with studio musicians.
For the duo's live per-
formances, McMillan
and Singletary perform
to backing tracks. "As
it gets bigger, we can
get a band," said Mc-
Millan.
Singletary said he
and his partner's mu-
sical talent is God-giv-
en. "It's been this way
since Robert and I met.


COUNTRY GOSPEL DUO Robert & James promote their new CD "Standing in the Sun," From left, WZEP-AM's Art
Dees,. vocalist Robert McMillan, and songwriter James Singletary. (Photo by Chris Manson)


It's always been music.
We used to go out to
Hardee's and let down
the tailgate and play.
The cops would tell us
to stop because we were
holding up traffic."
In the interim, Mc-
Millan sang and played
rhythm guitar with
numerous bands in
the Southeast. Single-
tary occasionally sat in
when his job as a full-
time painting contrac-
tor allowed. "We're not
gonna quit our day jobs
yet," Singletary said.
McMillan currently
works in the medical
industry, specializing
in radiology and radi-


ography.
A Web site is forth-
coming. The CD is avail-
able from myspace.com/
robertandjames and at-
shows.
Bacher, who cur-
rently functions as the
duo's manager through
his Dothan-based Dig-
A-Well Promotions,
is a four-time winner
of the CCMA's Radio.
Personality of the Year
honor. "If he gets the
award this year, I'm
just gonna go on stage
with him," Singletary
joked. The duo said
Bacher has gone out on
a limb to promote their
music and has not been


getting paid for his ef-
forts.
Robert & James are
also getting airplay
on WZEP-AM in De-
Funiak Springs. "Don't
Tell Me ..." is currently
in heavy rotation on
Baker's WTJT as well.
"People have sent e-
mails saying they've,
heard us all over the
country and on Inter-
net radio," said Single-
tary. "If it all ended to-
morrow, we've lived our
dream, being on radio
across the country."
Singletary's father
passed away last Sep-
tember, but he got to.
hear the master record-


ing before the CD was
pressed. "We played
four of the songs at
his funeral. It was the
first time a lot of people
heard them."
Singletary certainly
did not intend for that
to be the CD's official
debut. He and McMillan
began to promote their
album around the end
of July. In just two
months, their Myspace
page has exploded, and
some folks have even
started fan clubs.
"Doors just keep
opening. It's an an-:
swered prayer. We give"
all the credit to the good'
Lord," said Singletary.

SA7untie Erm


Dear Auntie Em,

Thanks for starting your
new column, the best of
luck to you with it.
My problem is our son,
we have always loved him
and -done everything for
him that we could, but now
he has gotten a whole tiew
family, and we are. now
second in his life.
He bought a new home
in Florida for a woman and
himself and her son by her
first marriage, and then he
bought a new second home,
right down a few feet from
them for her mother and
the rest of her family. He is
supporting about 12 or
more people.
My husband and I are
both over 70 years old, and
it has really taken a toll on
both of us mentally and
physically. We are thinking
about cutting him out of our
will, so her or her family
cannot get anything we
have. We refuse to accept
this large family. This is his
third marriage. The first
two were legal, this one is a
common-law marriage.
My health is especially
bad, and it really takes all I
can do just to make a meal
for my husband and me. So
there is no way I can wait
on all these people, but he
Wants us to accept all of
them, and be one happy
family. The woman already
has her name on his homes,
cars, and she just recently
took over managing the
bank account. Therefore, we
know she is only after him
for his money, which hurts
us so very badly. Our son is
very gullible where women
are concerned. I pray you
can help us someway with
this. Our son is now
carrying a gun, I pray her
ex-husband. does not kill
him, Lord forbid. Her ex-
husband just lives a few
doors down from them, too.
We pray for him
everyday to come to his
senses. He is a good son arid
we love him dearly. Surely
hope you can help us with
this bad situation, Auntie


Em. Thanks for being there.

Pensive in Pensacola
(Name and address
withheld by request)

Dear Pensive,
Auntie Em doesn't say this
often but, what a mess,
honey! Now let's put on our
big-girl britches and get to
work.
I don't like to assume, but
since you say your son has
purchased two homes, I
would have to guess he is a
hard-worker or has a good
job. So let's give him a little
credit in the intelligence area.
Your son could be in love with
this girl and gullible because
of his feelings, but that
doesn't haye to affect your
relationship with him as
much as it is now.
Threatening to cut him put
of the will should come off the
table at this point. Explain to
your son that you love and
accept him and you are there
for him. Just as you choose
how you live your life, he
chooses how to live his and
this is not a reflection of how
much you love him. Don't
shut him out now. A middle
ground of respect for each
other's views and needs is
direly needed from both of
you.
It is also apparent that you
feel displaced by his
preference for his girlfriend's
family. I don't want to alarm
you, but it is a tactic of
manipulators to separate
people from family and
friends to control their prey.
Isolation is a great tool in
gaining control over another
person. On the other hand,
every baby bird has to fly the
nest and this may just be an
act of rebellion on his part. So,
the last thing you need to do
is further isolate him by
pushing him away or
continuing to fight over what
he chooses to do with his
hard-earned cash. Just as he
chooses what to do with his
money, so can you, but
acceptance of one's behavior,
love and money should never
be intertwined.


The gun alarms Auntie
Em the most. This suggests
some type of drama or
threat that your son is
caught up in and that is
why. I am going to give you
some atypical advice. Hire
an agency or private
investigator to check out
the situation for you. An
unbiased eye could help you
get a handle on the
situation, but I personally
would not share what you
find out with him unless
you discover his life is
actually in danger. He
would be mad and feel
violated if he found out you
did this, so this is only for
your peace of mind as a
parent.
We live in a dangerous
world today and everyone
from potential dates to
employers preform
background checks. When
you get solid, unbiased
information on the group
he is involved in, then
contact an attorney about
your financial concerns.
You may decide that a trust
overseen by someone else
or a donation to a charity
would be the right way to
go with your estate.
Nothing but time and
experience can heal the
pain of watching someone
* we love slip away from us,
but using your head
instead of your heart may
protect your family in the
end.
You are in Auntie Em's
thoughts and prayers. And
remember, troubles are
often the tools by which
God fashions us for better
things.

DANNY LYONS, maestro of the English hand bell, per-
forms at St. Agatha's Episcopal Church.


Lyons a nd

By BRUCE COLLIER
Hand bell virtuoso Danny
Lyons and pianist Vicki
Sweeney entertained a
standing-room-only crowd at
St. Agatha's Episcopal
Church in DeFuniak Springs


Wakga, ,- ;" *iL-.
VICKI SWEENEY smiles at the piano, accompanying
Lyons in concert at St. Agatha's.


Sweeney entertain at St. Agatha's


on Sunday, Oct. 14. The con-
cert kicked off the church's
Lakeside Concert Series.
This was Lyons' second ap-
pearance at St. Agatha's.
Lyons did double duty as
performer and master of cer-


emonies, introducing each
piece and offering bits of in-
formation about his instru-
ments. The bells, though
called "English hand bells,"
originated in Czechoslova-
kia. They were not intended


as performance instruments,
but for practice use by church
bell ringers. According to
Lyons, the bells were intro-
duced in America by legend-
ary showman P.T. Barnum.
"We were a circus act," he


said.
Lyons expressed happi-
ness at having been invited
back to perform in DeFuniak
Springs. "It forces me to learn
a new repertoire." Because of
the physical demands of
playing the bells, Lyons does
not read off a written score,
but from memory.

During a question-and-an-
swer session in mid-concert,
Lyons estimated that he has.
some 100 musical pieces
committed to memory.

Lyons and Sweeney
played 13 pieces in the two-
part recital, including an en-
core piece. On the program
was "The Rejoicing," by
Handel, "Finlandia,"
"Shenandoah," "Parade of the
Tin Soldiers," "Swing Low,
Sweet Chariot," "Lover," a
medley of Rodgers and
Hammerstein, "Trumpet
Tune" by Purcell, "Yankee
Doodle Variations," "All the
.Things You Are," "Joshua,"
Beethoven's "Ode to Joy," and
George Gershwin's "Bidin'


My Time."
When not playing, Lyons
kept up a genial and gently
humorous, banter with the
* audience, and demonstrated
various techniques of play-
ing, including with mallets.
He also explained the layout
of the.hand bells on the play-
ing table, in "keyboard order"
like a piano. His layout table
at the concert covered a
three-octave range, he said.

Among the many laughs
he got was when he played
the basic theme of a well-
known Episcopal hymn while
vocally overlaying a succes-
sion of songs such as "How
Much is that Doggie in the
Window?" and "I've been
Working on the Railroad."
Sweeney said little, but
held her own, including mak-
ing some on-the-spot shifts in
the program's order. She and
Lyons have recorded several
CDs, and have performed to-
gether for 10 years.
Following the concert, a
reception was held in the
church's parish hall.

THE DeFUNIAKSP SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, OCTOBER 18, 2007

OWC Theatre commits


"Crimes of the Heart"


;y BRUCE COLLIER
Beth Henley's comedy/
rama, "Crimes of the Heart,"
-,pens this week at Okaloosa-
Walton College (OWC), in the
Sprint Theater on the OWC
Niceville campus. Perfor-
mance dates are Wednesday,
Oct. 17 Saturday, Oct. 20.
The play recounts an
eventful two days in the lives
of the Magrath sisters, resi-
dents of a small Mississippi
town that has its share of ec-
centrics and unhappy rela-
tionships. Lenny (played by
Alicia Leonard) is more or
less celebrating her 30th
birthday. Meg (played by
Rachel Hoskins), who left
town years ago to work as a
singer, has returned, success
having eluded her. Babe
(Joleigh Jarvis), has been the
most busy, having gut-shot
her husband Zack. Zack isn't
dead, but Babe still has some
'splaining to do to the law.
Flitting in and out of this is
Chick (Nalia Bauer), an infer-
nal neighbor, bent on mind-
ing everyone's business but
her own.


The two male characters
in the play are Doc Porter
(Bruce Culpepper) and
Barnette Lloyd (Doug
Bagnall). Doc may or may
not still be carrying a torch
for Meg, who did him wrong
years ago during Hurricane
Camille. Barnette, an attor-
ney retained to defend Babe,
has more than one ulterior
motive.
This being set up, the
playwright brings everyone
into the same house and
starts the machine. "Crimes
of the Heart" combines sis-
terly jealousy, family skel-
etons, and town gossip in a
half-serious, half-comic way.
It's one of those plays that
can make an audience feel
like eavesdroppers,listening
at the door as secret after
secret is aired. Henley asks
us to laugh, then cry, then do
both. Most of the time she
succeeds. Sometimes she
leaves us wondering what
she wants us to do.
The play ends with little
resolution, coming closer to


actual family lifethan a more
neatly-written play might
have come.
As always with OWC, the
production quality is first-
rate in all respects. Director
Clint Mahle set the play in
the 1970s, with period maga-
zines, products, and decor on
the realistic three-quarter
round set. Linda Corley's cos-
tumes and hair styles are
dead-on for the period, pain-
fully so at times. Fashion-
wise, the 1970s were either
an anomaly or an abomina-
tion, take your pick.
This writer saw the dress
rehearsal on Oct. 14, and ev-
ery detail was not yet in
place. Some of the dialogue -
it's a wordy piece got lost,
generally in scenes of argu-
ment and high emotion,
when speakers overlap. The
three-quarter staging also
contributed to this, with ac-
tors having to play to three
sides and include everyone.
This is a small criticism.
The acting quality is high.
The actors are all in the mid-


range of experience, and work
well within the realistic, con-
temporary Southern atmo-
sphere of the play. No one
single performance stands
out, which is the object of any
ensemble. "Crimes of the
Heart" is a milder play than,
say, the near-operatic "Steel
Magnolias," but it has its
crazy moments and laugh-
out-loud lines. One sister ob-
serves that a woman who
married a man from the
North will bear "half-Yankee
children." Another samples a
box of chocolates by biting
each in half and discarding
what she doesn't want. "I was
looking for the ones with
nuts," she explains. "It's a box
of creams!" says her sister,
showing her the label. Sui-
cide, adultery, and saxo-
phone-playing are likewise
grist for Henley's mill.
"Crimes of the Heart" cur-
tain times are 7:30 p.m. on
Oct. 17, 18, 19, 20, and 2 p.m.
on Oct. 20. For more informa-
tion, call the box office at
(850) 729-6000.

downs as the Walton offense
rolled up 340 total yards in
the first half of play. Bramlet
recorded scoring tosses of 16
yards to Deron Hogans and
19 yards to Michael
Campbell to help Walton
build a 20-0 lead after one


quarter of play.
Walton held a 37-0 margin
at halftime as Devron Ford
drilled a 34-yard field goal,
his second of the season, with
23 seconds left in the half for
the final scoring for the
Braves on the night.
Playing under the Mercy
Rule in the second half,
which requires the clock to
run non-stop when a team


has a lead of 35 points or
more excluding injuries, of-
ficial timeouts and the end of
quarter break, Walton played
reserves. The Braves rested
the starters after one half of
play in preparation for the
district showdown with
Pensacola Catholic that will
take place on Friday at
Everett Yates Memorial Sta-
dium.

Walton limited Baker
quarterback Cameron
Domaingue to 67 rushing
yards on the night and one
touchdown. The Gators
scored a pair of touchdowns
in the second half despite the
running clock. A Ramoan
Hogans fumble was returned
26 yards to the Walton 7-yard
line early in the second half
by Kellan Meeks to set up a
6-yard run by Billy
Whatmough to cut the mar-
gin to 37-6, Domaingue
added a 17-yard run with
three minutes to go in the
game to finish off the scoring
at 37-12.
Walton's defense held
Baker to 171 total yards on
the night as the Gators could
manage only 63 yards of of-
fense in the first half while
Walton was putting points on
the board with each posses-
sion.
The win evens the series


ISSAC JACKSON takes a handoffon a sweep as he rushed for 92 yards and two touchdowns
in Walton's victory over Baker on Friday.


Walton golf team captures


third straight district crown


By PATRICK CASEY
Aaron Timmons shot a 72
to edge teammate Paul
McClure, who shot a 73, as
Walton won the District 2,
Class A golf tournament held
at the DeFuniak Springs
Country Club on Monday.

The Braves shot a 316 as
a team to claim first place as
they defeated Panama City
Arnold, who finished second,
by 20 strokes. Arnold and
South Walton finished in the
top three and will advance
with Walton to the Region 1,
Class A tournament on Tues-
day, October 23, that will be
held at Tallahassee's
Southwood Golf Club.
The Freeport girls will
also advance to the Region 1
tournament as will Walton's
Brooke Windham, as she fin-
ished among the top. six to
qualify as an individual.

The Walton boys team will
be looking to qualify for the
state tournament for the sec-
ond year in a row as the
squad made the trip last
year.


"We are in a position to
earn a trip to state if we con-
tinue to play well. We took
the first step today and it will
get tougher from here. Only
two teams for the region get
to go and there are teams like
Pensacola Catholic, Wakulla,
and Maclay that you have to
outplay to get there," said
Stan Bosenberg, Walton's
golf coach, after the match.
"Timmons played well to-
day and McClure nearly
caught him on the last hole.
We played well on our home
course (today) and will have
to do so in Tallahassee next
week to earn a state berth.
These kids have worked hard
and have the trip to state last
year under their belt. We'll
*tee it up on Tuesday and see
what happens."

Freeport, South Walton shut out


By PATRICK CASEY
To say Friday night was
unkind to the football teams
of Freeport and South Wal-
ton would be an understate-
ment.
Freeport invaded Jay, try-
ing to knock off the Royals,
but ran into a hostile Home-
coming crowd that saw Jay
play their best game of the
season in defeating the Bull-


dogs 42-0.
' Jay quarterback Brandt
Hendricks threw for 132
yards and two touchdowns
while Dale Barlow had a 56-
yard punt return to lead Jay
to a 28-0 halftime lead.
Freeport had a kickoff re-
turn for a touchdown called
back due to a holding penalty
that kept the Bulldogs off the
scoreboard.


Jay did lose running back
Tyler DeGraffto a dislocated
kneecap during the game
which caused the Royals
trouble on special teams as
he doubled as their kicker.
Freeport's Cole Weeks
spent most of the night run-
ning from Jay defenders as
the Bulldogs sputtered on of-
fense as they were shut out
for the first time this season.


Freeport (2-4) is 2-2 in the
district heading into a key
home game with West
Gadsden on Friday.

South Walton was also on
the Homecoming menu as
the Seahawks were shot
down by the Choctaw Indi-
ans 41-0.
South Walton managed
121 total yards of offense but


no points as Choctaw con-
trolled the pace of the game
on their way to a 28-0 half-
time lead.
Trent Williams returned
an interception 43 yards for
a touchdown in the first half
and Indians quarterback
David Weber threw for 176
yards and a touchdown as
Choctaw improved to 3-3 on
the season.


S6uth Walton (1-6) forced
two turnovers in the first half
but missed a pair of field
goals. Dennis Smith led the
way with 44 rushing yards
for the Seahawks.
South Walton has their
bye week this week, but will
return to the playing field on
October 26 when they travel
to Holmes County for a Dis-
trict 1, Class 2B contest.


High school football round-up


By PATRICK CASEY
Pensacola High crushed
Pensacola Catholic 42-0 as
Tigers quarterback Marquis
Adams threw for 117 yards
and a touchdown while de-
fensive back Ty Evans re-
turned a David Kooi pass 49
yards for a score in the rout.
The Crusaders, who face
Walton on Friday, may have
been looking ahead to that
contest as little went right on
the night. Pensacola High led
35-0 at the half as the Cru-
saders fell to 2-5 on the sea-
son.
Chipley's Joe Green ran
for 135 yards and two touch-


downs as Chipley won a high
scoring affair in Marianna
55-40. Green had a 98-yard
kickoff return for a touch-
down and Tigers quarterback
Zach Schaubhut threw for
235 yards and two touch-
downs as Chipley improved
to 6-1 on the year.
Marianna's Bradley Battles
ran for 283 yards on 40 car-
ries as Marianna fell to 4-2.
'Nikita Myles scored four
touchdowns as Northview
defeated Blountstown 35-20
in a non-district contest.
Cory Cox threw for 257 yards
and three touchdowns for
Blountstown, but tossed two


costly interceptions as
Northview improved to 4-2.
Panama City Bozeman
quarterback Andrew
Brannon ran for 89 yards
and a touchdown as the
Bucks defeated Holmes
County 28-16. Bozeman (3-3)
held a 21-7 lead at the half
only to have the Bluedevils
cut the deficit to 21-16 before
Bozeman tacked on another
score for the winning margin.
Vernon rallied from an 18-
6 deficit to pick up a Home-
coming victory 26-18 as Geo
Works scored on a 3-yard run
and set up another score with
a 75-yard run to tie the game


at 18-18. Vernon quarterback
Josh Boyett hit Jerel
Peterson with a 16-yard pass
late in the contest to give the
Yellowjackets the win and
improve their record to 2-4.
Port St. Joe broke open a
7-6 game with two touch-
downs in the second half at
home to pick up a key Dis-
trict 1, Class Avictory. Travis
Dailey picked off a pass by
Liberty County quarterback
Ridge Read and returned it
eight yards to seal the win
late in the fourth quarter.
Port St. Joe and Jay are now
the only two undefeated
teams in the district.

Byrum gets second straight win


By CHUCK HINSON
It took Auburn kicker Wes
Byrum and his million-dollar
leg to pull the Tigers out of
its second close match in the
past three weeks. His 20-
yard field goal, with 21 sec-
onds left in the game, cata-
pulted No. 22-ranked Au-
burn into the victory column.
It was a very heavy de-
fense game, with a total of
only 16 points between Au-
burn and Arkansas. That
made for a very hard-hitting


match-up against a Razor-
back team that last year
handed the Tigers a loss. Not
this year, though, as Auburn
extended its on-the-road
wins and added another
feather in the cap of head
coach Tommy Tuberville.

Byrum also saved the
game against Florida last
week when he kicked a 43-
yard field goal not once, but
twice to beat the Gators in
the swamp, 20-17, in the last


few minutes of the rumble.
Arkansas scored the first
touchdown and brought the
score to 7-6 with 1:36 remain-
ing on the clock. Casey Dick
took the ball in for a 13-yard
touchdown and the one-point
lead. But the celebration of
the home team in
Fayetteville, AK., was short-
lived. Auburn took over and
Byrum sealed the deal.
As far as the offense was
concerned, the Tigers were
just as impressive as they


held Heisman hopeful
Darren McFadden to just 43
yards. It was also the first
time that he had been held
to less than 100 yards rush-
ing since the.beginning of the
season.

Auburn heads to LSU this
weekend to take on a former
No. 1 team that will be try-
ing to recover from the
wounds of a loss and will be
ready to fight again on their
own turf.


'Noles and 'Canes out, Bulls hit No. 2


By CHUCK HINSON
One may ask "Who are the
Bulls? Where are they from
" and what are they doing in
the NCAA top 25?"
They are the University of
. South Florida Bulls, from
' Tampa, and they are winning
games and, so far, keeping a
perfect season alive. This
past weekend, this previ-
ously ranked No. 5 team pul-
verized neighboring Univer-
sity of Central Florida, 64-5.
With the weekend losses
of LSU and Cal, now .Ohio
State has moved into the top
spot, while USF slid right in
on into the second spot with
a perfect season record.
The rise of the Bulls and
the swarming of the defense,
led by Geirge Selvie, the
nation's sack leader, crushed
the UCF offense. USF's quar-
terback, Matt Grothe, threw
for two touchdowns and ran
for two more TDs to help the
Bulls extend their perfect 6-


0 season.
Teams previously consid-
ered the two Florida power-
houses in NCAA football, Mi-
ami and Florida State, both
felt the agony of defeat this
weekend to ACC rivals.
Florida State traveled to
Winston-Salem, N.C., to try
to regain their dignity
against Wake Forest, after
the Demon Demons came to
Tallahassee last year and
shut out the Seminolesj 33-
0. Despite a 24-211oss, the
'Noles felt the sting of the
demons for the second year
in -a-row, throwing them al-
most certainly out of the
chase for the ACC play-off.
It came down to the fourth
quarter when Wake Forest
(4-2, 3-1) quarterback Riley
Skinner from
Tallahassee, threw a 35-yard
touchdown to Kenneth
Moore, to seal their victory
over the No. 21-ranked Semi-
noles. They led Florida State


21-14 with a little less than
seven minutes remaining on
the clock.7
Florida State
quarterback Xavier Lee, fin-
ished the night with 24-of-45
completed for 283 yards and

two touchdowns.
Miami's road to an ACC
division championship, also
got longer this past weekend
as they fell 17-14 to Georgia
Tech. Yellow Jacket's
Tashard Choice ran for a ca-
reer-high 204 yards on 37
carries, while quarterback
Taylor Bennett rushed for
two touchdowns and Georgia
Tech took control of the game
at the beginning of the sec-
ond half and never looked
back and won, 17-14.

Travis Bell's 39-yard field
goal would eventually be the
game-deciding score that
made all the difference in Mi-
ami. The Georgia Tech win
gave them bragging rights to


being the fourth team since
1978, to beat the Hurricanes
in three consecutive seasons.
* Notre Dame, Virginia Tech
and Florida State are the
other teams that had the
honors.
Choice went 54 yards on
Tech's opening drive of the
second half, and the Yellow
Jackets pushed the game to
a 7-7 tie. Georgia Tech did
not stop there and Bennett
ran 10 yards for the next
Tech score.
Miami's penalties led to
several loss of yards and
could have been the downfall
of the Hurricanes. Bruce
Johnson did have one im-
pressive play for the 'Canes
as he intercepted his first
college career pass, setting
up the scoring drive by
Shawnbrey McNeal's 39-
yard touchdown.
Miami travels to Tallahas-
see this weekend to take on
the Seminoles.

Vick hit in pocket


By CHUCK HINSON
Just when you had not
heard anything for at least
three weeks about Atlanta
Falcon quarterback Michael
Vick, another damaging
court ruling gets thrown at
him This time it is the team
that is seeking restitution in
the amount of $20 million in
bonus money.
Already facing prison time
for the dog fighting, he has
now lost the first round in
court against the team and
their fight for recovering bo-
nus money paid to Vick dur-
ing his stint with them. The
arbitrator ruled that the bo-
nus money given to Vick se-
cretly bankrolled his dog-
fighting operation.

since the players union has
already begun procedures to

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

FHS chomps P.C.


By CHUCK HINSON
Despite a first close match
from the visiting Pensacola
Christian team, the Lady
Bulldogs maintained a
steady lead and won by five
points. The next two matches
- l n all Fri n fTht cg-nn tQrh


By CHUCK HINSON
Just when we thought
that college football couldn't
get any stranger, this past
weekend, things got
even more chaotic and this
time took down the top two
teams in the nation.

After No. 1 LSU got
shocked in triple overtime by
No. 17 Kentucky, 43-37, No.
2-ranked Cal fell in the final
seconds trying to scramble
for the touchdown and not
going for the tie with a field
goal, the tables turned for
NCAA football and now the
top spots are up for grabs.
The Tigers are the latest
of top five teams to drop af-
ter being considered the un-
touchables since the start of


breezed to victory with scores
of 25-20, 25-15 and 25-8.

Once the second match
rolled around and the Free-
port Lady Bulldogs got their
feet firmly planted on the
court. it was all Bulldogs as


the 2007 season. LSU had
pushed their luck the week-
end before when they pulled
a fourth and long with sec-
onds remaining on the clock,
to win the game. This time,
LSU couldn't get a first down
with the four chances.
Andre Woodson and the
Wildcats clawed their way to
victory and made history by
toppling the No. 1 team. It
was the first time that Ken-
tucky had taken down a No.
1 team since 1964 when they
beat the University of Missis-
sippi.
It was also the
first time since 2003 that a
No. 1 team had been beaten
in the regular season. That
happened when Kansas
State upset top-ranked Okla-


they controlled and then shut
down both the Pensacola
Christian offense and de-
fense.

Freeport scorers included:
Lora King, with 4 aces, 2
kills 1 dig and 20 assists:


homa, 35-7 for the Big 12
championship and ruined
their hopes for a perfect sea-
son.
Andre Woodson completed
21 of 38 passes for 250 yards
and threw three touchdowns
and ran for one touchdown.
This interesting day of
football continued on into trie
night when No. 2 Cal met its
match when it locked horns
with Oregon. In the final sec-
onds of the game, due to an
inexperienced back-up quar-
terback, unranked Oregon
State toppled the No. 2 team
and widened the path for
even more unbeaten teams to
take the top spots.
Cal had looked poised, to
take over the top spot after
hearing the news that LSU


Autumn Warner, 2 aces, 1
kill; Heather Moore, 2 aces,
6 klls, 1 dig, 3 blocks; Curstin
Buford, 1 ace, 4 kills, 2 digs,
3 blocks; Stephanie
Morrison, 2 aces, 3 kills, 1
dig; and Lindsey Jones with
2 aces. 11 kills and 5 assists.


had fallen to Kentucky. They
were riding high in the polls
and with the large spread
they were given, the team
was confident it would be
able to run all over Oregon.
It came down to the final
seconds of the game, with no
Bears' time-outs left and a
three- point Oregon State
lead. Cal's back-up quarter-
back, Kevin Riley, despite
getting Cal just yards from
the endzone, tried to run the
ball himself instead of throw-
ing out of bounds, and the
clock ran down with Oregon
State taking home the 31-28
victory.
LSU and Cal's losses made
them the tenth, top 10-
ranked team to fall this sea-
son.

cooling


weather into a hot bite


By JAY YELAS
Among all the different
factors that affect bass be-
havior, none has more impact
than the seasons. Fish es-
pecially bass are ruled by
the weather. Just like all
creatures, two things drive
fish: survival (food, safety)
and reproduction. But the
first step to catching any fish
is knowing where to find
them. To find fish during this
time of the year, you have to
have an understanding of a
bass behavior during fall sea-
sonal cycles.
While bass spend much of
the summer recovering from
the rigors of the spawn by
schooling in deeper water
and feeding on the new
hatches of baitfish, the first



Paxton's


cooling days of fall trigger a
reaction in bass that begins
their preparation for winter.
They begin to feed heavily in
an attempt to store as much
energy as possible to survive
the winter. Minus the heat of
summertime, there is a
higher level of oxygen in
shallow water which draws
in bait fish. Bass, one of the
largest predators in. any
lake's food chain, will begin
to haunt these shallow areas
in search of baitfish.

Bass will congregate on
the edges of wind-swept
points where the current
holds these baitfish in shal-
lower water. In situations
like these, something like a'
Berkley Frenzy Rattl'r



National


crankbait can be highly effec-
tive.
As fall begins to make its
way towards winter, and the
water temperature drops
into the mid-60 degree range,
bass will look for feeder
tributaries with cover that
will attract baitfish. Gener-
ally these waters will be 10
feet or less, water that is
warmed more quickly when
the sun is out and adjacent
to deeper water like a sub-
merged channel (bass like
deep water for escape routes
and ambush points). Here,
the bass will remain and feed
heavily until the water
reaches the mid-50 degree
level. Target the cover in the
area with a Berkley Classic
Power Jig with a PowerBait


Chigger Craw trailer, espe-
cially if there is a late craw-
fish hatch. Bass seldom pass
up a chance for a slow, easy
meal- especially with winter
coming.
Once winter arrives and
the water temperature dips,
the fish will pull up stakes
and head for deeper water.
But don't miss out on the
chance to target the hungry
bass in the fall. Just look for
feeder tributaries, cover near
submerged channel beds and
key on water less than 10 feet
in depth to catch fall transi-
tion bass.
Berkley Pro Jay Yelas,
who currently fishes the
FLW Tour, is a former
Bassmaster Classic cham-
pion from Corvalis, OR.


Honor Society inducts

new members


The Paxton High School
Chapter of the National
Honor Society (NHS) com-
memorated the induction of
new members on Friday,
Sept. 28, by hosting an offi-
cial induction ceremony.
Nine new members, all
sophomores, were asked to
join the society. In order to be
invited to become a member,
students must have a 3.5
grade point average or
higher. They also have to
demonstrate outstanding
leadership qualities. The
purpose of the NHS is to
build students up as they
demonstrate the qualities of
service, scholarship, charac-
ter, and citizenship. The in-
vited members were selected
and approved by the faculty.
The inductees at the cer-
eriony were Aubrey Ander-
son, Tyler Garrett, Brandon
Garrett, Erin Walker, Tessa
Hutchinson, Nicole Yeakos,
Dan Geoghahan, and
Gabrielle Kilgore. They each


were asked to recite the
society's pledge, led by NHS
President Hannah
Hutchinson. The officers all
spoke of the qualities that
the new members were ex-
pected to exemplify. Officers
this year include Vice-Presi-
dent Maryllyn Gilbert, Sec-
retary Catherine Kitchens,
and Treasurer Brittany
Adams. SonyaAlford, Paxton
High School principal, pre-
sented each member with
their certificate of member-
ship.
"What makes these new
members so special is that
many of them are involved in
school sports and many have
part-time jobs. We recognize
that keeping up with aca-
demics, athletics, and work
during high school is not an
easy task, which is why we
honor them for doing so. The
members of the club are very
talented and very intelli-
gent," said NHS sponsor
Debbie Donaldson.

County-wide height

ordinance issue

raised yet again


By LEAH STRATMANN
Prefacing her remarks
with, "Please don't shoot the
messenger," planning man-
ager Lois La Seur told the
Walton County Planning
Commission that county
planners were asked again
to bring an ordinance be-
fore the board which would
limit heights in the entire
county. "We have consid-
ered this previously and it
was not passed, but we have
been asked to bring it to
the commission again. Cell
towers, silos, and windmills
might be exempt, but defini-
tions need to be refined," she
said.
Commissioner Tom Ter-
rell asked if the planning
department was given any
direction by the Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC). "Do
they have something in mind
or is this just another cook-
ie cutter amendment? We
have had this thing before
and I have not changed my
mind. I cannot see Glendale
having the same limitations
on heights as Santa Rosa
Beach. I have not heard a
real reason," he said.
Planning Director Pat
Blackshear said, "We have
to take your recommenda-
tion back to the BCC. We
should ask Eglin Air Force
Base to do a height study.
We should find out what the
public wants too. The com-
missioners want input from
the planning board and from
the public," she said.
Commissioner Tom Pat-
ton suggested someone had
leaned on the BCC to bring
this ordinance back to the
surface. Blackshear said
it wasn't just one commis-
sioner who asked the plan-
ning department to revisit
the issue, "I don't want any-
body to get the idea that just
one commissioner asked for
this," she emphasized.
Citizen Ed Bradley, who
lives in Choctaw Beach,
said he would like to see a
transferable variance added
to the ordinance. "I under-
stand this will be voted on
next week and no one can
get an answer as to why the
.height limit should be lim-
ited to 50 feet. I urge you to
vote against the ordinance


and get more disclosure.
The BCC needs to be forth-
coming to find out why this
keeps coming up year after
year.
Walton County resident
Dana Matthews agreed. "If
this issue is going to keep
coming back, we ,need to
develop height restrictions
or not as a planning tool. I
think the issue needs to be
tabled and a list of ques-
tions compiled by commis-
sioners to find out what the
public wants in order not to
disenfranchise any property
owner. Discussions need to
take place in workshops.
We need to analyze who all
will be impacted. If govern-
ment takes a position that
devalues someone's prop-
erty, it can be litigated and
will more often than not be
settled in the property own-
er's favor. Arbitrary height
restrictions allow those who
could have built up to have
a legal claim.: I would ask
this be tabled tonight and
ask the BCC for direction. I
think there are a lot of other
groups that want input," he
concluded.
Bob Hudson lives south of
the bay and urged the com-
missioners to adopt an ordi-
nance. "I don't want to ruin
the coastal areas of the Bay
and the scenic beauty," he
said.
"I could not in good con-
science pass this as written,"
said Commissioner Terrell.
"I think there needs to be a
lot more discussion between,
all interested parties."
Chairman Albert Paris
agreed, saying, "I have basi-
cally the same opinion. I feel
we need to look at it from a
lot of different angles. I don't
think we need a 27-story
condo by any means. Six-to-
eight-story condo buildings
would be more sensible."
Commissioner Patton
said, "This is not economi-
cally feasible. I don't think
there is enough affected
land. We are passing an or-
dinance for the whole north
end of the county, which is
not market-wide feasible."
Terrell made a motion to
disapprove of the ordinance
as written. The motion was
seconded and all passed it.

leatherback nest in 1962,
according to Lorna Patrick
of the U.S. Fish and Wild-
life Service. That was the
last time that leatherback
hatchlings were observed in


Walton County.
While leatherbacks have
nested in surrounding coun-
ties, this is one of the rarest
of sea turtle species.
The majority of Walton
County's native sea turtles
are of the loggerhead spe-
cies, and a smaller number
of .green turtles also come
onto county beaches to nest.
SWTW spokesperson
Sharon Maxwell comment-
ed that, although each of the
threatened loggerhead and
green turtle hatchlings is


nest a


st
precious .to her, the leather-
back hatchlings were trulyI
special to behold, being over
two-and-a-half times the
size of the loggerhead andj
green turtle hatchlings, and
a beautiful bluish-black ini
color.
"What a wonderful expe-i
rience!" Maxwell said.
It will be 20 years beforei
these leatherback hatch-:
lings reach maturity, when;
the females may return to
Walton County to nest.

POST-HURRICANE DENNIS seawall construction in Seagrove. A license agreement
is being considered by Walton County as an answer to issues with private seawalls built
encroaching onto county property.


By DOTTY NIST
Prodded by the state for a
decision, Walton County has
come closer to an agreement
that would to some degree
settle a long-standing and
controversial issue.
This concerns 28 post-
Hurricane Dennis coastal
armoring structures con-
structed by beachfront
property owners, structures
which were apparently built
encroaching onto county
beach property.
Walton County issued
permits for these structures
and hundreds more on a
temporary basis during the
emergency order period fol-
lowing the July 2005 hurri-
cane. They include seawalls


and geotube-type installa-':
tions pLit in for the purpose:
of shoring' up beachfront
homes.
The understanding had:
been that temporary armor-:
ing was to be placed on their
owners' private property,:
and most of it was. However,:
well after construction, the
state Department of Envi-:
ronmental Protection (DEP);
reported the 28 structures in:
question to be encroaching:
on adjoining county-owned;
property, from as little as;
inches in some cases to 40:
or more feet.
Since last year, the DEP:
has been seeking a decision;

Walton County to focus on


customary beach use


THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, OCTOBER 18, 2007


By DOTTY NIST
Conflicts over beach
rights have increased in
Walton County over recent
years, and the county is
seeking some answers.
At the request of the Wal-
ton County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC), legal
counsel Mike Burke provid-
ed a report on the status of
public use of the "soft, san-
dy" portion of the beach, the
area where beachgoers sit or
sunbathe.
Burke's summation of the
matter was that the public's
right to use this portion
of the beach, based on the
doctrine of customary use,
must now be established on
a case-by-case basis.
Both tourism leaders
and county officials have
been concerned about the
message that visitors re-
ceive when beachgoers are
shooed out of some areas
of Walton County beaches
that homeowners consider
private. The July arrest of
one beachgoer who refused
to move from his spot on
Blue Mountain Beach also
attracted widespread atten-
tion. That matter has since
been settled with the man
paying a fine, and no more
such arrests have been re-
ported.
"I don't have a good, easy
answer for you," attorney
Burke told the commission-
ers.
He said that in his opin-
ion the doctrine of custom-
ary use would not necessar-
ily apply to all 26 miles of
Walton County beachfront.
The situation is different, he
noted, with the five miles of


beachfront on the west end,
which was restored with
public funding in a large-
scale project. The state po-
sition has been that sub-
merged state land reclaimed
in such projects is subject to
use by the public.
The Florida Supreme
Court is now considering
whether current beach res-
toration policies represent a
"taking" of the rights of ad-
jacent upland property own-
ers, and, if so, if the owners
must be compensated for
that taking.
Burke outlined four pos-
sible options for addressing
the question of public right
to use of the soft, sandy
beach.
The first option, he ex-
plained, would be "to do
nothing" and allow citizens
and citizen groups to bring
suits to contest the beach
rights question through the
courts.
The second option, which
Burke called "light the fuse,"
would involve the county
adopting an ordinance de-
fining "what is the custom-
ary use of the soft, sandy
beaches in Walton County."
Litigation would be expect-
ed with this course of action,
he noted.
The third option, "light
the bomb itself," would be
initiation of a class-action
lawsuit to determine.wheth-
er the customary use doc-
trine would apply on the ex-
tent of the county's beaches,
Burke continued.
The fourth option, he con-
cluded, would be seeking
voluntary easements from
beachfront property own-

mile south of Rock Hill Road.
A motion for approval by Comander carried 4-0.

Following up on a homeowner complaint, the commis-
sioners also directed staff to check undeveloped lots for
which building permits will be requested, in phase 2B and
2C of the Driftwood development, to determine if there is
slow-percolating clay fill on the surface of the lots which
could contribute to future drainage problems as the area is
developed.

beach area, in return for
tax relief, to ensure public
access rights on those sec-
tions.
Burke's recommendation
was for the commissioners
to exercise the second and
fourth options, which he
said could "march hand in
hand."
District 4 Commissioner
Sara Comander motioned
to proceed with looking at
those two options and direct
Burke to begin drafting an
ordinance defining custom-
ary public use of the beach
in Walton County.
District 5 Commissioner
Cindy Meadows seconded
the motion, and it was ap-
proved 4-0, with all commis-
sionerspresent voting in fa-

Plannin


affordab
By LEAH STRATMANN
At the monthly meeting
of the Walton County Plan-
ning Commission, planner
Jason Bryan came before
the commissioners to pres-
ent the affordable housing
ordinance. The central idea
of the ordinance is to try and
place affordable housing as
near to employment centers
as possible. Bryan empha-
sized this is the first try at
such an ordinance, but the
planning commission mir-
rored almost exactly what
is being done with the Wolf
Creek project being devel-
oped by Regional Utilities.
The ordinance allows for
housing units to be set aside
for community development
organizations with dedi-
cated units, which would
always be affordable. He
said the ordinance follows
the recommendations by the
Department of Housing and
Urban Development (HUD).
"These properties are to
be assigned to the various
income levels for a period
of 20 years for either own-
ership or rentals. This is
meant to ensure the units
remain available for the
workforce over time. This
has been utilized by the
Wolf Creek Village project,"
the ordinance states.
Bryan said HUD com-
puted the median income
in Walton County to be
$44,600. If a family of four
spends 30 percent of.their
annual income on housing,
the amount available for the
purchase or rent and other
costs is $13,380 per year or
$1,115 per month. These

SIGNS CLAIMING the beach for private use have become more numerous in Walton
County in recent years. Members of the public attempting to sit or sunbathe have also been
turned away in some of these areas, and one'
individual's refusal to removed even resulted in an arrest this year after a resort security
guard filed a complaint.

costs include rent or mort-
gage, insurance, taxes and
utilities.
The ordinance attempts
to address the availability
of housing units and reduce
the cost in human capital of
businesses such as wages.
A reduction of travel time
to employment centers and
increased homeownership
should lead to increased
family and personal savings,
the ordinance states. "Wal-
ton County has chosen to
increase the density of prop-
erties and thus to reduce the
per unit cost of housing."
The ordinance seeks to
integrate lower-cost housing
within and around homes
in the higher cost brackets,
stating, "developers can and
are encouraged to mix in-
comes within a given project
in order to build a sense of
community and inclusion.
Points are given based on
the amount of affordable
housing provided along with
the income levels. The or-
dinance encourages devel-
opers to mix housing types
and ownership. These fac-
tors are meant to encourage
a mixed community within
a development."
Anita Page, 'director of
the South Walton Commu-
nity Council said, "I think
a good job was done on the
ordinance and I like the con-
cept of integrating afford-
able housing into existing
neighborhoods."
Commissioner. Tom Ter-
rell asked for clarification
of income levels. Bryan told
him that low incomes would
be those that are 80 percent


of the mean income rate, gested the language be made
verv low income would be clearer in some areas.

of the mean and extremely
low would be 30 percent of

approval ell)


By LEAH STRATMANN
At last week's meeting of
the Walton County Planning
Commission, a number of
items came before the board
and were approved without
public comment. .
Among the quasi-judicial
items passed were:
A request by Rosa Del
Mar, LLC, to gain a small-
scale amendment change to
6.21 acres of land from NPA/
Infill to village mixed use,.
capped at 10 units per acre,
or any less dense or intense
category. The Planning
Commission approved the
change to the parcel, located
south of Choctawhatchee
Bay, on the west side of Moll
Drive, south of U.S. 98.
James and Ginger Thomp-
son requested a small-scale
amendment to change 1
acre from Neighborhood
Preservation Area (NPA)
from to the newly-created
low-density residential cat-
egory. The parcel, located
south of Choctawhatchee
Bay and immediately north
of Cassine Gardens in Sea-
grove, was approved for the
change.
A parcel located south of
Choctawhatchee Bay, 450
feet from the intersection of
Pisces Drive and Chat Holly
Road, and owned by Rex
and Lumpann Chambless,
was changed from. NPA to
low-density residential.
Clayton McHenry and
Tracy Chaney sought to
change 1.39 acres from Con-


servation Residential (CR),
which, calls for two units
per acre to low density resi-
dential. The parcel, located
south of Choctawhatchee
Bay on the south side of Si-
erra Court, was determined
to actually better fulfill the
NPA/Infill category and the
change was approved by the
commissioners.
M.A. Properties, LLC
sought change to a 10-acre
parcel located south of
Choctawhatchee Bay in the
Hogtown Bayou area, north
of Nursery Road and east of
North Church Street from
CR to NPA/small neighbor-
hood or any less dense cat-
egory. During the discus-
sion, it was revealed that
this parcel is part of a larger
Planned Unit Development
(PUD) and is 70-percent
wetlands and presents se-
vere development limita-
tions. There was also some
question about whether or
not the map is correct. The
commissioners decided to
approve the request, pend-
ing meeting the criteria for
a map revision.
Barnhill, Barnhill and
Barnhill requested a devel-
opment order application
to build 40 single-family
homes on 10 acres of land
located on the east side of
Thompson Road, approxi-
mately 1,400 feet south of
U.S. 98W. The name of the
project is Assisi Villas and is
a PUD. The project was ap-
proved.

Local artist Bill Stephen-
son's face beamed as he and
South Walton Tourist Devel-
opment Council (SWTDC)
member and chair of the
Arts and Culture Commit-
tee Mary Brown unveiled
his commissioned artwork
recently at the Coastal
Branch Library in Santa
Rosa Beach. The donated
work, titled "Sky-Sun-Sea-
Sand," will be on permanent
display at the facility.
The October 11, ceremo-
ny was part of the SWTDC's
Art in Public places (AIPP)
program and was attended
by approximately 30 in-
dividuals, including Wal-
ton County commissioners
Cindy Meadows and Sara
Commander. AIPP was cre-
ated to provide art to and


compliment public buildings
therefore creating a sense of
pride, place and enhanced
community identity in Wal-
ton County.
"When we saw his cre-
ations, we were taken
aback," said Brown.' "His
work has allowed other peo-
ple to connect to local art-
ists. His work is absolutely
breathtaking."

wooden vessel on a wood
lathe and is over 18 inches
tall and 8 inches in .diam-

from a section of .Southern
Magnolia that was salvaged
from the clearing of power-
pole construction.

SEAWALLS FROM FRONT


from Walton County as to
whether or not the county
would grant after-the-fact
permission for the struc-
tures to stay on its proper-
ty.
On Sept. 17, Mike Bar-
nett, chief of DEP's Bureau
of Beaches and Coastal Sys-
tems, again contacted the
county, insisting on an an-
swer within 45 days.
The county permits for
temporary seawalls had
been issued with the un-
derstanding that property
owners would be required to
obtain coastal construction
control line (CCCL) permits
from the state in order for
their armoring structures to
stay in place permanently.
"Due in part to the Coun-
ty's failure to resolve this
.issue, the Department's
CCCL applications for these
twenty-eight (28) properties
have remained incomplete
for well over one year," Bar-
nett wrote.
He added that, without
an answer from the county
within 45 days, "the appli-
cations will be denied and
the structures ordered re-
moved."
On Oct. 9, the Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC) dis-
cussed granting these prop-
erty owners a license agree-
ment for the armoring to
remain on county property.
The license agreement had
been proposed by the own-
ers of the armoring struc-
tures in question.
Public comment in the ses-
sion was varied and impas-
sioned, with some opinion
strongly in favor of removal
of the armoring and, on the
other hand, property owners
who paid hundreds of thou-
sands of dollars for their
armoring maintaining they
were due thanks for repair-
ing the eroded beachfront.
Mike Burke, interim
county attorney, pointed out


advantages of the license
agreement from the county's
point of view.
A license agreement, he
told the commissioners, is
"the lowest level of property
use or interest that can be
granted."
Walton County and the
public would have total ac-
cess to the property, and
any liability associated with
the armoring would be that
of the licensee, he explained,
as would maintenance re-
sponsibility 'and costs asso-
ciated with the armoring.
The county would be em-
powered to terminate the
license "with or without
cause,", Burke said, and,
with a decision to terminate,
the property owner would be
legally required to remove
the armoring and- restore
the area to pre-construction
condition.
In response to a question,
Burke said that in his opin-
ion it would be permissible .
for the county to charge the
property owners, a fee in
connection with their use of
county property for their ar-
moring.
District 4 Commissioner
Sara Comander suggested
that such a fee might fund
the purchase of property for
a public beach access or ac-
cesses.
Comander also wanted it
made clear that, whatever
the county's decision re-
garding the 28 structures, it
would ultimately be the de-
cision of the state whether
to approve or deny the prop-
erty owners' applications to
leave the armoring in place
permanently.

The license agreement,
with the addition of the pay-
ment provisions and addi-
tional minor modifications
suggested by the commis-
sioners, will be discussed
further in public session at
a later date.

* If vino is your vice
and the grape is all
you crave, then this
weekend that thirst
can be quenched at
two wine festivals.
From DeFuniak
Springs to Rosemary
Beach, what you
want in a good
Merlot or Pinot
Grigio can be found.

Squeezed from the musca-
dine or pressed from the
grape, this weekend is for
those who enjoy a nice glass
of chianti, or like to relax on
a hot summer day with a
bottle of chardonnay. The two
events will spotlight the
wines, the wine makers and
even the demographic that
call themselves wine
afficionados.
In DeFuniak Springs, the
Chautauqua Winery will be
hosting their annual Harvest
Festival on Oct. 20. It is the
one time of year that the win-
ery introduces many new
bottles and gives their cus-
tomers a chance to renew
acquaintances with some of


(- IT

.'-o / n n l .: t i '. rt i


their old favorites.
Opened in 1979 by Paul
and Kate Owens, the
Chautauqua Winery is the
largest vineyard in the state
of Florida.
Throughout the day, the
winery will have free
tasting of some of their fa-
vorites, while people stroll
the lawns and have a chance
to look at several different
artists and crafters from all
across the region. Live enter-
tainment will also be pro-
vided throughout the day by
Smokin' Rodeo and Jones &
Co.
The event takes place from
10 a.m. 1:30 p.m. For more
information, call, 892-9539.
On the south end of the
county, the Coastal Wine and


Culinary Tour returns to
Rosemary Beach, Oct. 19-21.
It is a weekend of excellent
cuisine and, numerous
pouring of some of the
world's best wine.
On Friday, Oct. 19, two
wine dinners, both already
sold out, will take place at
the Courtyard Winery and in
the town Hall. Chefs Tom
Wolfe of Tom Wolfe's of New
Orleans and winemaker Lisa
Peju, along with local chef
Tim Creehan of Beach Walk
Cafe, will be preparing and
serving tastes that will tempt
and satisfy the palate.
On Saturday, the Grand
Wine Tasting takes place on
the east lawn of the property.
More than 20 wineries and
distributors from around the


Southeast will be on hand to
pour.
The event will take place
on the lawns from 2 6 p.m.
Live entertainment will also
be provided throughout the
afternoon.
After a day of sipping
wines and champagnes from
all across the region, the St.
Augustine Green turns into
a smooth jazz concert venue
as WSBZ 106.3 presents
Acoustic Alchemy in concert.
The Grammy award win-
ning, London-based group
will be performing some of
their recent hits, as well as,
songs off their new album.
For more information and
ticket reservations call 267-
EAZY.
To wrap up the weekend of
music, wine and food, the
walk-around brunch takes
place on the Western Green.

rants from across the Florida
Panhandle will be serving a
variety of dishes, while wine
enthusiasts enjoy a coupled
glass of vino.

hopes to combine T

THE DnFTINTAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE. THURSDAY. OCTOBER 18. 2007


By JEFFREY POWELL
Approximately a year and
a half ago, individuals from
several panhandle histori-
cal groups came together to
form the Panhandle His-
toric Preservation Alliance
(PHPA).
According to their newly
adopted by-laws the pur-
pose of the organization is
to bring together commu-
nity and other interested in-
dividuals and organizations
located in northwest Florida
who are actively engaged in
the collection, preservation
and restoration of historic
property and memorabilia
from the state of Florida
and their respective com-
munities.
The PHPA met on Oc-
tober 15, at Eden Gardens


State Park in Point Wash-
ington to elect officers and
solidify their short term
goals. Among those goals is
the groups plan to partici-
pate in this year's Chautau-
qua Winter Assembly in the
Land of Summer celebra-
tion.
"We are thrilled that
your organization wants to
join us there," said Florida
Chautauqua Assembly Inc.
President Ann Robinson.
Robinson's group has put
aside the entire top floor
of the Chautauqua Hall of
Brotherhood building for
the PHPA. The group will
use half of the space for
static displays and the other
half for oral presentations to
interested visitors.

nificance to the panhandle,"

of it."

the Panhandle Pioneer
Settlement in Blountstown,
