FDOT reverses decision


concerning U.S. 331 realignment


By JEFFREY POWELL
A resolution by the Free-
port City Council and Wal-
ton County Commission
addressed to the Florida De-
partment of Transportation
(FDOT) concerning the pro-
posed re-naming of the old,
section of U.S. 331 appears
to have resulted in a favor-
able decision for the area.


"I am ecstatic about this
decision and appreciate ev-
erybody's effort in accom-
plishing this task," said Wal-
ton County Commissioner
Sara Comander. "This will
save the businesses and
residences the expense of
changing their addresses."
, Several months ago, the
FDOT had proposed using


the designation SR-83A for
the old section. This deci-
sion brought about concern
by local leaders that the
designation would be a bur-
den for everyone on the old
section as they would be re-
sponsible for changing their
mailing address.
In an. effort to compro-
mise, the FDOT acknowl-


edges that the city of Free-
port will erect street signs
along the corridor designat-
ing the local street name as
"331 Business' within the
city limits. The FDOT will
also erect, a guide sign on
U.S. 331 South, along SR-
20, and on the new U.S. 331
North notifying motorists of
the new "331 Business" as
designated by the Freeport


and Walton County.
Both Freeport May4$
Mickey Marse .and Waltg.
County Administrator Ron-
nie Bell were fully in favor of
the compromise. "I am very
happy about the change of
the FDOT's original plan to
331 Business," said Mayor
Marse. "I think this will
work out better for everyone
concerned "

In the principal's office....


By BRUCE COLLIER
This is the first of a
planned series of articles on
Walton County school prin-
cipals, based on interviews'
at their respective schools.
This article is about the


principals of Maude Saun-
ders Elementary (MSE)
and Walton Middle School
(WMS), both in DeFuniak
Springs.
Tracey Dickey came to
Maude Saunders from Free-

port Elementary School,
where he was principal for
eight years. "There's no dif-
ference, really," he says, be-
tween his old and new posts.
His task, and the task of his
teachers, is to prepare stu-
dents for academic success.
To that end, the emphasis
is on "content knowledge."
MSE has a professional de-
velopment trainer, math
consultant, and specialists
in reading, language arts
and writing.
Building fluency in read-
ing is a primary goal, along
with making sure the less
fluent readers are not ig-
nored. The MSE motto
is "Success is Up to Me,"
and Dickey likes to tell his
young students, "This is re-
ally your first job."
MSE's 770 students, from
pre-kindergarten to fifth
grade, have access to an
open library, computer lab,
and facilities for art, music,
and physical education. All
are in place to prepare them
for the next step middle
school.

School board busily budgets, buys and builds


By PATRICK CASEY
The Walton County
School Board dealt with an
agenda full of capital project
updates and property acqui-
sition ideas at their October
16 meeting.
The capital projects re-
port for the month included
progress on the Mossy Head
School, noting that some
roof panels are going-up and
more red steel beams are be-
ing put in place.


The Walton High School
tennis courts are ready for
play and Bay Elementary
School is having the block
exterior installed as the roof-
ing and frame work is com-
plete on the multi-purpose
building. Paxton's gymnasi-
um is nearing completion as
a section of the floor has had
to be .replaced due to some
water damage on the north
side of the facility.
Work continues on the


new Walton High School
and an agreement has been
reached with Hunter's Ridge
Subdivision on the cost of
constructing Hunter's Ridge
Road that will run from
Walton Road to the devel-
opment. The school district
will pay over $80,000 of the
$170,000 for the cost of the
road and will handle 25 per-
cent of the future mainte-
nance cost.
A construction change


order was necessary for the
Mossy Head School due to
a result of low water pres-
sure coming from the Mossy
Head Water Works.
The board passed at this
time on the opportunity to
purchase land adjacent to
the Walton County School
Bus Barn between Walton
High School and North 20th
Street. The tract of land con-
tains over 20 acres and was
offered at a price of $600,000


for the parcel.
Board members discussed
the need for another middle
school in southern Walton
County as well as addressing
concern over improvements
for the sixth-grade wing at
Walton Middle School in the
near future.
The Walton County
School Board will hold their
next regular meeting on
Nov. 6, at 5 p.m. at the Tivo-
li Administrative Complex.

Girl injured at county fair back home, recovering


By CHRIS MANSON
Shawn Cosson, propri-

day night off bowling with
his son. It was also opening
night at the Walton Coun-

called to let him know that
she and their two daughters
would be coming home after
one last ride.
A few minutes later, Cos-
son got a second call in-
forming him that Katie, his
13-year-old, had suffered a
head injury on the ride.

On Wednesday, Katie be-

said "her entire right side

Katie for an MRI. The doc-

for Katie's constant head-

Katie was released from
Sacred Heart Saturday.
The neurologist was unsure
about the long-lasting ef-

expressed concern to Cos-
son about a "second strike,"
an additional head injury
that could result in death.
This means no sports for the

Cosson said he and his
wife did not speak out about
his daughter's accident last
week because "we didn't
want to hurt the fair or keep
the kids from going." But he
did express concern about
the ride's safety restraints
- Cosson was told there was
"about a foot distance" be-

Cosson is grateful for all

received from friends and
neighbors. "You can't beat

said.
He added that Katie re-

commended the police and

Sand, sense and


sensibilities

By RON KELLEY
The Walton County Commission has recently dealt with
two gritty issues involving sand. The first involved a bor-
row pit on Rock Hill Road that was not legally permitted
and, thus, should not have been there in the first place.
Instead of shutting the operation down, the commission-
ers voted unanimously to enter into a consent agreement
with the owner in order to allow him to apply for a large-
scale land use agreement. The agreement would be in ef-
fect until 2010.
I'll be the first to admit that once a borrow pit (or clay
pit) is operational, the land isn't fit for anything else be-
cause it is essentially a large hole in the ground from which
sand or clay is extracted by the truckloads and sold.
However, that is not the point. The point is that here
was a business in clear violation of county codes and in-
stead of following their own prescribed course of action,
the commissioners sent a mixed message to Walton County
citizens and legitimized the code violation by giving the
owner a three-year extension to come into compliance.
Fine. Then I'll expect the same gentle treatment when I
deliberately violate the county codes.
The second sandy solution involves the decision to al-
low seawalls built on county property. The walls that dot
the beaches were erected after Hurricane Dennis peeled
the sand away from the dunes and left some homes teeter-
ing on the edge of tall cliffs. Property owners were terri-
fied that, with more hurricanes on the way, their expen-
sive homes could wind up like broken match-sticks rest-
ing at the bottom of the sand cliffs.
The commissioners hastily gave the property owners
nearly unlimited permission to do whatever was necessary
to shore up the properties and issued scores of "temporary"
permits to erect the seawalls. Land-owners immediately
set about erecting permanent structures, sure that such
violations would be forgiven.
Some of the structures were actually built on county
(public) property. One such project took in over 80 feet of
public property. If you don't know how tall that is con-
sider that the tallest structure allowed (with one glaring
exception) in south Walton is only 50 feet. Take a look at
the tallest "single-family" rental, add half that height again,
and you'll have an idea of how much public property was
taken.
Over the last few years, the Department of Environmen-
tal Protection (DEP) has approved many of the seawalls,
while rejecting others. When it came to those built on pub-
lic lands, the DEP insisted that the county take action.
The county could (and perhaps should) have fined the con-
struction companies that did the work, since they knew
better and could offer no justifiable excuses.
Instead, the commissioners generally agreed to allow
the seawalls to remain, with the understanding that the
property owners would pay to have the structures inspected
twice yearly by a licensed private contractor and pay the
county a fee to have the county planning department in-
spect and review those reports.
While some say the offending seawalls should be torn
down completely, I have to agree with the commissioners
on this. First, such destruction would damage the beaches
again and I believe our beaches have suffered enough. It
would endanger some homes, which the county should
never willfully do, and it would disturb turtle-nesting habi-
tats.
Walton County beaches are already nothing but a pale
shadow of their former glory. The sand doesn't squeak when
you walk on it anymore and it's certainly not sugar-white
either. In fact, it's nearly black in some areas. County ve-
hicles run up and down it constantly and the idea of un-
necessarily putting more heavy equipment on those
beaches andrunning the risk of killing even more turtles'
is simply a crime against nature that is more important
than removing those seawalls.

Editor,
The global threat status was recently heightened for the
mako shark, from 'near threatened' in 2000 to vulnerable to-
day by the World Conservation Union. This means that the
mako shark is threatened with extinction.
Over 100 million sharks are being killed every year due to
human greed. Longlining, gillnetting, shark finning, habitat
loss, pollution and recreational fishing are the culprits. The
impacts of shark finning and longlining alone will wipe out
most shark populations within a decade. There has been a 40-
to 70-percent reduction in populations of mako and tiger sharks
on the east coast of the United States in the last 15 years. The
shark has been on planet earth for 450 million years and has
survived five major extinctions and is now on its way to being
fished out. The shark is the world's top predator and now is
one of the top prey of humans.
The recent, tragic senseless killing of the mako shark by
the rodeo contestants is an absolute outrage. Rodeos and shark
tournaments should end their shark killing now. The message
that is being sent by these organizations is that it is okay to
kill a species that is in trouble worldwide, and needs conser-
vation. Instead of killing them, film them.
The Bush Administration has cut funding for shark research
by 50 percent. Shark research can help save sharks. Write or
call your congressperson to demand more action and increase
funding to help save sharks. Check out the website
www.sharkwater.com about a new film coming out on Novem-
ber 2, 2007 about the plight of sharks in the world's oceans.

a public service adjustment compared to CHELCO $150.
My pump went out, I'm not a developer, but a 20-year resi-
dent. I called the county for assistance (possibly a low-inter-
est loan-not a handout) and was sent by two county leaders to
SHIP in Pensacola. She told me I needed proof of employment
and told me to get a "real job." I told her most construction
companies pay under the table. How does she think the illegals
get paid? As a matter of fact, I worked for the same programs
she administering, under the table. Talking about policing her
own agency. I'm glad to defend this country for this person to
have the freedom to tell me to get a real job. I have this SHIP
State Funding program request and notice in front of me. I've
been out a month now, so maybe the health department will
leave me alone. Families do still use outhouses in Walton
County. It's the caring and compassion they offer.
Sincerely
Louis H. Roberts

Editor,
The mainstream media continues to promote their pick
of Republican-in-name-only candidates. It was very evident
at the debate last night. Cell phones can only text vote once
and FOX News knows it. Yet Sean Hannity, on the Fox News
Channel post-debate show, continues to be in denial and dis-
credits his own Fox text vote poll after Sunday night's Re-
publican Orlando debate. Why? Because Ron Paul is not his
candidate and Ron Paul won big with 34 percent, second
place was Gov. Huckabee from Hope, Arkansas, and distant
third places went to Rudy Fred Romney each placing close
to 10 percent each.
Why does the mainstream media continue to promote the
obviously outdated national polls, and continue to try to
. breathlife into their distant third-place candidates?
In one straw poll, Fox News sent a film crew to promote'
their man Rudy in Michigan, but pulled the story because
Ron Paul wiped, the floor with him. Straw polls are not
Internet voting. Straw poll means real people show up and
vote. People should become acquainted with Ron Paul's strong
straw poll record.
Out of the 36 so far, Ron Paul's Head-to-Head Records (win-
lose-tie) are as follows: Ron v. Rudy Giuliani 31-5-0, Ron v.
Mitt Romney 24-12-0, Ron v. Fred Thompson 21-14-0, Ron v.
John McCain 32-3-0, Ron v. M. Huckabee 30-4-1, Ron v. Tom
Tancredo 33-1-0, Ron v. Duncan Hunter 32-2-0.
Ron Paul is a uniter and, like Reagan, is pulling many
pro-gun, pro-life "Reagan Democrats." Ron at 72 years young,
is a favorite with the young crowd, and is exciting many in-
dependents and non-voters to register Republican for the
first time. "" i'
Dr. Paul is of average height, but stands 10 feet tall with
the short few minutes he is unfairly rationed in the debates.
You see Rudy Fred McRomney get four times more ques-
tions and time in these debates. Ron Paul tells you straight
with detail how he stands. He calls himself "The Champion
of the Constitution," and he has it memorized, I'm sure. Who
else has?
You mentioned a while back that no candidate addressed
your issue. I bet'you Ron Paul has addressed it, and has
probably submitted a bill to Congress to fix it.
It is only two months until the deadline to register as a
Republican, December 30, 2007. I encourage you all to' get
on the Internet at the library and check out candidates' vot-
ing records and you will see that they do not match what
they say, all except for Ron Paul (and maybe Tancredo), who
is truly honest and there has never been a better candidate
in history since George Washington.
Sincerely,
Randy Henning

FMS students participate in gun safety program


What would you do if
you were placed in a dif-
ficult situation involving a
firearm? Would you make
the right decision? Eighth
grade American History
students of Freeport Middle
School (FMS) participated in
an educational program ti-
tled "Playing It Safe Around
Guns," presented by Walton
County Deputy W. Hardage,
the School Resource Officer
(SRO) at FMS.
The students viewed
a 12- minute video about
real-life situations involv-'
ing guns, discussed how to
handle such situations and
how laws about firearms af-
fect and protect their lives.
The presentation called,
"Playing it Safe Around
Guns," is not a firearms
safety video. Instead, it is a
communications effort de-
signed to prevent firearms
misuse by helping students
"rehearse" their reaction if
placed in a difficult situa-

tion regarding firearms. The
video presents two scenarios
- both showing youngsters
confronted with sudden and
serious decisions on how to
deal with firearms. In the
video's first scene, a young
boy asks two friends in a
school cafeteria if they want
to see something "cool," and
pulls a stainless-steel re-
volver from his backpack.
Students are then asked


what they would do in that
situation and given the op-
portunity to discuss the sit-
uation with each other and
the SRO.
Possible solutions are dis-
cussed such as:
A. admonishes the boy
not to bring a gun to school
again;
B. avoid getting involved;
C. find and tell a teacher
or principal. (the correct an-

swer)
In the second part, a boy
opens his father's gun case
and handles a large pistol
in front of two friends; later,
he is accidentally shot in the
hip by one of them.
Again, students are asked
what they would have done:
A. handle the gun to look
cool;
B. do not touch it but
hang around;
C. make an excuse to


'"'


leave and tell an adult. (the
correct response)

The video is very realistic
in portraying real but un-
loaded guns in the hands of
children, and for portraying
events from the standpoint
of the teenager, even us-
ing the same language and
slang terms that students
would use.
The real message of the
presentation is not how to


J


shoot a gun safely, but how
to get out of a potentially
dangerous situation when
someone has a gun.
At the end, the video fo-
cuses on a young man in a
wheelchair. Paul Patterson,
a real life victim of a fire-
arm accident, who tells stu-
dents,
"You may think it's cool to
mess around with guns, but
I'm here today as evidence
that it's not cool."

New G.E.D. program for Walton County inmates


Thirty-one inmates at the
new Walton County Jail will
begin literacy training and/
or classes to obtain their


G.E.D. Tuesday evening,
Oct. 23. The new adult lit-
eracy program for the in-
mates is funded through a


$100,000 federal grant fun- Sunday of the Walton Coun-
neled through the Florida ty Jail says the grant appli-
Department of Education. cation process was through
Deputy Director Stan the collaborative efforts
with Okaloosa Walton Col-
lege's Barbara Jones. "We
are grateful to the leaders of
the college for their partner-
ship with us in helping to
release inmates to a bright-
er future," he says. "Our
goal is to keep inmates from
returning to jail which cost
our taxpayers thousands of
dollars per inmate annu-
ally."
4The program will be
administered through in-
structors from the Walton


County Jail and transitional
specialists provided by Oka-
loosa Walton College, and
the program will continue
for some inmates after their
release date.
The grant is designed to
provide the instructors and
specialists who can work
with inmates and their fam-
ilies until they reach certain
personal and educational
development benchmarks or
until inmates have achieved
their G.E.D. Literacy train-
ing for those with language
barriers is also included
through the grant program.
"We hope to provide the


inmates with a means to an
education," says Deputy Di-
rector Sunday "and to help
integrate them back into so-
ciety."
District 4 County Comrn-
missioner Sara Comander
says she applauds the efforts
to give inmates a second
chance at a decent quality
of life through the new pro-
gram. "Any effort
to reduce crime and save
taxpayers money is a good
for our citizens and commu-
nities," she says. "MVIy hope
is that the program proves
successful and continues for
years to come."

small plaque honoring Jim
McCormick to be placed on
a one of the stucco columns
to be constructed with the

large movie screen for the
Chautauqua building with
an electronic controller from

erhood Foundation. With a

able to anyone using the

ies shown are ,to help raise
funds for an elevator for the

cil approved the submission

Kirby also submitted
for the council's approval
. a resolution in recognition

zens to take a more active

cluded in the budget.

Walton

Middle

School

honors

readers

By CHRIS MANSON
The kids were lined up
outside the door of The Book
Store, and it wasn't for the
release of a new Harry Pot-
ter epic. A group of 42 Wal-
ton Middle School students
were bussed over to choose
books, their reward for suc-
cessfully completing a sum-
mer reading initiative.
According to Liz Sinclair,
owner of The Book Store
with husband David, the
students each received a
five-dollar voucher to which
the store added an addition-
al fifty cents. "The school is
very supportive of us, and
we try to reciprocate," she
said.
Dr. Dale Yount, Wal-
ton Middle School literary
coach, said this was the
second year for the reading
rewards program. The stu-
dents were required to read
at least four books over the


SEVENTH-GRADER Jackie Jordan picks up a copy of Gordon Korman's "The Fugi-
tive Factor." Jordan said, "I read the first book (in the series). I like the part where they get

summer. Twelve of them
read 10 or more. The stu-
dents also had to complete
a project based on the books
they had completed.
After the kids selected
their books, they piled back
on the bus and were treated
to lunch at Pizza Hut. Both
the restaurant and The Book
Store offered Walton Middle
School discounted prices.


Around noon, Dr. Yount
and the kids returned to
the school's media center for
the presentation of certifi-
cates. The honor students--
the dozen who exceeded the
four-book requirement--also
received a Wal-Mart: gift
card. Eighth-grader Court-
ney Barto was singledj out
for her remarkable achieve-
ment; she read 25 books.


"Our new principal, Mr.
(Tripp) Hope, is putting
out a challenge," Dr. Yount
said. From Oct. 1 to April
30, he is challenging all*
of the school's students to
read 15 books and to score
at least 80 percent on the
Accelerated Reading Test.
Students who meet this
challenge will be treated to
a fun-packed day at Ham-
mock Bay swimming, mov-
ies, and other activities. "It's
a reward for reading," Hope
told the students.
"It doesn't .matter how we
get kids to read," said Hope.
"We just need to get them to
read. These programs entice
children to read and under-
stand what they read."

ence you'll have on a child."
Dickey acknowledges
that MSE still has room for
improvement, specifically
in math and reading, where
the school has met 97 per-
cent of the requisite criteria
for adequate yearly progress
(AYP). "We're on the verge,"
says Dickey. Parent-teacher
relationships are good, he
adds, and supplemental ed-
ucation services are in place
to provide tutoring to stu-
dents in need of it.
Dickey maintains an
open-door policy for paren-
tal input, and encourages
volunteering. "Research
shows that home support
and reasonable expectations
of kids make a difference."
Tripp Hope came to WMS
from South Walton High
School (SWHS), where he
was vice-principal. Hope
says it took three years
for the newly-constructed
SWHS to build a foundation
and begin to establish its
own traditions, as well as a
family atmosphere. Hope's
new post was welcome "I
was elated to get a chance to
run a school" but also "a,
little scary."
Hope found, a big differ-
ence between the two jobs
to be in the curriculum. In
high school, he says, the em-
phasis is on college prepa-
ration, whereas in middle
school, the emphasis is on
preparation for high school.,
He calls the middle school
years "the toughest years
for kids. They need more
direction. You have to hold
their hands more." The stu-
dents at WMS are "hungry
for education. They enjoy
people caring, taking an in-
terest." Hope tries to main-
tain a presence on the school

ible. If [the students] feel
safe, they can concentrate."
The new county-wide
school dress code, which
Principal Dickey said was
not much of an issue with
his elementary school stu-
dents, took a little more
"tweaking" at WMS, says
Hope. "It's great. The coun-
ty needed it. It simplifies
things." Parents have told
Hope that buying clothes'
has become much easier. As
for the students themselves,
"They don't mind. Kids like
direction. When they're not
sure, that's when there are
problems. They want lead-
ership."
Hope tries to extend his
philosophy of visibility to an
open-door policy, and to be
present at games and other.
extracurricular activities.
Academically, WMS
"was an A-school when I
got here." Hope's goals are

Freeport has the music


By BRUCE COLLIER
This is the first of a
planned series on band di-
rectors and music programs
in Walton County schools.
Michael Miller wears
two hats or rather, carries
two batons as director of
bands and music programs
for Freeport Middle School
i (FMS) and Freeport High
School (FHS). Miller was
educated in South Carolina,
and studied french horn. He
has also played mellophone,
baritone, tenor, alto and
baritone saxophone, flute,
alto flute, piano, and trom-
bone. His performance re-
sume includes pit orchestra
ivork in high school, college,
and community theaters,
college quintets and jazz
Sessions, and drum and bu-
gle corps.
This is Miller's third year
t the Freeport schools.


In addition to conducting
and directing the band, he
teaches basic music theory
and history. So far, it's in-
struments only, but Miller
hopes a vocal program will
come soon. "We'd love to
have one."
At present, the FMS band
has 27 students. The FHS
band has 25 musicians and
10 color guard members.
The bands' programs consist
of adaptations of classical
music, arrangements from
musicals, and '70s and '80s
rock. Miller says his stu-
dents appreciate all kinds of
music, including Egyptian
and traditional Jewish com-
positions, "a little of every-
thing."
The choice of instruments
varies. Miller offers prospec-
tive players a chance to play,
trying their skill on brass or
woodwind mouthpieces. Ap-


titude and inclination play
a part in matching students
with instruments, and Mill-
er doesn't force anyone. "We
don't want unhappy people,
they won't work."
In the FHS band room,
a circle of chairs and music
stands awaits the band stu-
dents, soon to come in for
their practice. Some of the
instruments are laid out.
Commenting on the size,
Miller says, "It's bare bones,
as basic as can be. I wish we
could triple it." The players
rehearse a total of about
14.5 hours a week.
Miller shows a video of
the FHS marching band
and color guard at a recent
game. Miller devises and
writes down drills, acknowl-
edging that marching is a
"special skill." Miller and
his musicians watch and
analyze their work on vid-


eos the Monday after every
game performance.
The FHS band has re-
cently enjoyed some honors,
and made an appearance at
a Florida Bandmasters As-
sociation (FBA) music per-
formance assessment (MPA)
for the first time since 1989.
Two students attended an
FBA all-state clinic, and
three band members earned
seats in the Northwest
Florida Symphony Youth
Orchestra. Aside from play-
ing at games, the band also
performed in concerts and a
concert competition.
Funding for the band pro-
gram comes from the school,
with supplemental cash
from the Band Boosters'
Club. Miller is grateful to
the community for its "great
support," adding that prog-.
ress can always be made.
"A music program comes
with slow and systematic
growth."


MICHAEL MILLER is band director at.Freeport Middle
and Freeport High Schools.

Injured duck rescued at Lake DeFuniak


By CHRIS MANSON
During her duck-feeding
ritual at Lake DeFuniak,
Tina Ward observed that
one of the birds had become
entangled in a mess of fish-
ing line.
"She couldn't use her left
leg at all," said Ward. "I'm
amazed she's still alive. She
would have probably died
from the infection eventu-
ally."
Tom Haddon agreed to
help Ward trap the duck
so she could take it to a lo-
cal veterinarian who volun-
teered his services. The vet-
erinarian asked to remain
anonymous because he
wished to avoid "any prob-
lems arising from his -kind-
ness," said Ward.
Two months ago, Ward
tried five different times to
catch the duck. On Monday,
Haddon brought along a
bait net to snare the injured
creature. He said he had
caught a lot of fish with the
net, but never a duck.
Haddon readied the net
as Ward fed the other ducks.
"Come on, baby," she called
in a sing-song tone as Mus-
covy crosses and white Pe-
kins flocked to her.
The actual capture only
took a few minutes. Ward
suffered only minor scratch-
es in the process of remov-
ing the injured duck from
the net. She then placed
the duck in a pet carrier to
transport it to the veterinar-
ian's office.
"Thank you, Tom," Ward
said to Haddon after com-
pleting the first phase of
the mission. "You're a good
man."
"You're just saying that
because it's true," Haddon,
a retired executive for An-,
heuser-Busch, joked. Before
he drove off, Haddon sug-
gested they name the duck

"Peg-Leg Pete."
"You're a citizen of De-
Funiak Springs, and you de-
serve quality health care,"
Ward explained to the duck
as she prepared to load the
pet transport into her car.
The surgery was success-
ful. Ward released the duck
back into Lake DeFuniak
shortly after 2 p.m. "The
first thing she did was go
down and drink," said Ward.


"I don't know if she'll ever
regain use of that leg, but
at least she won't die from
infection or gangrene."
Ward works as a compan-
ion for Personalized Home
Care and interns for On the
Wildside Wolf and Wildlife
Ranch, a 125-acre ranch in
Ponce de Leon that plays
host to 19 wolves and two
tigers.
She feeds the ducks


-4,-


around Lake DeFuniak at
least three times a week and
daily during the winter. "I go
through a 50-pound bag (of
chicken feed) in a week, but
it's so worth it," said Ward.
"They belong to DeFuniak,
just like the lake."
Ward added that her and
companion Patrick Stanley's
efforts have enabled "quite
a bumper crop of babies" to
survive.

Dear Auntie Em,


I am a 25-year-old col-
lege student who has
been involved in a long
distance relationship
with another college stu-
dent for the last three
months. We have traveled
to see each other a few
times and usually call
each other few times each
week. Everything was go-
ing great and I really
thought this might be the
one and then he just
stopped calling me. I left
him two voice mails over
the last. week and still
nothing. I know he is busy
with school and that he is
okay, because we have
mutual friends that have
seen him on campus. I
was really hoping this re-
lationship would work
out, even though he has
had a reputation in the
past as a player. It's been
'two weeks now since we
last talked. Should I call
him again? What should
I do?
Vexed in Valparaiso


(Name and address
withheld by request)

Dear Vexed,
After two voice mails and
no returned calls, the last
thing Auntie Em would do is
try to call him again. So, step
away from the phone. That's
it. nice and slow. Just put the
phone down.
I know it hurts when
someone just drops out of
your life. It leaves you with

do great things, when they
want to do them. And if he
wanted to talk to you, he
would move heaven and
earth to do just that. So no
more excuses for him not

focus on your classes and
live the best life you can.
Do not sit by the phone

take the call. If he wants
to explain his behavior, he
will find his way to your
front door. Then you get to
decide if he is worth the
time to listen to him. Ifhe
doesn't do that, then the
only thing you have lost is

Good luck, stay strong

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, OCTOBER 25, 2007
Movie Review
"Elizabeth: The Golden Age" History can be pretty


By BRUCE COLLIER
Say what you will about
its doubtful historical accu-
racy and it's doubtful -
Shekhar Kapur's "Elizabeth:
The Golden Age" scores 10
out of 10 for sheer beauty.
Compared with
"Shakespeare in Love,"
which made a point of show-
ing the days of Good Queen
Bess with sweat and grime
intact, this film literally
flows with elegance. The
camera lingers long and lov-
ingly over near-iconic im-
ages of Cate Blanchett as the
Virgin Queen, in one cos-
tume after another, from
party gowns to full plate ar-
mor. The latter she dons in
defense of her realm. The
film's central conflict and
story is England's battle
and victory over the Spanish
Armada. There's a sub-plot
concerning Sir Walter Ra-
leigh, but England versus
Spain is the main event.
This film is a sequel of
sorts to "Elizabeth," a 1998
film by the same director.
Blanchett takes her place
with Judi Dench, Glenda
Jackson, Bette Davis and
Flora Robson in the screen


pantheon of Queens Eliza-
beth. Like Lincoln, Jesus
Christ and FDR, the role
seems to require reinterpre-
tation every generation. As
Elizabeth, Blanchett takes
double duty, showing the
queen in full superstar
mode, dominating every as-
pect of her court "You eat
and drink control," says Ra-
leigh in a private moment.
We also see Elizabeth as her
maids see her, without wigs
and whiteface, counting ev-
ery wrinkle in the mirror.
Elizabeth comes off by turns
as affable and witty, distant
and chilly, blustering, uncer-
tain, and ultimately heroic.
In the scene when she ad-
dresses her troops on horse-
back, riding along the coast
with the galleons of the In-
quisition heading across the
Channel for them, I thought
of the acting advice Charles
Laughton gave Laurence
Olivier in playing King
Henry the Fifth: "Be En-
gland."
As for the bad guys, King
Phillip the Second of Spain
is beautifully played by
Jordi Molla, speaking au-
thentic lisping Castilian. He


keeps his courtly smile, even
when calling the English
monarch the most uncompli-
mentary names heretic, il-
legitimate, and worse. Clive
Owen is properly rough and
ready as the privateer/ex-
plorer Raleigh, though his
presence at the battle of the
Armada is a pure fiction. Ap-
parently Raleigh was ashore
while Sir Francis Drake was
whipping the Spaniards.
Here, Raleigh does a full-
court Bruce Willis number on
the enemy ships, every bit as
unbelievable but equally fun
to watch.
That's probably the most
appealing thing about mov-
ies like "Elizabeth: The
Golden Age." There's just
enough history to make one
feel virtuous about watching
- this is the "PBS/Masterpiece
Theatre Effect" and the cos-
tumes, swordfighting, and
flashy rhetoric satisfy the
need for spectacle. Since
Elizabeth and England are
still standing at the end of
this film, a third installment
seems to be in order. Who's for
"Elizabeth: Final Chapter" or
"Grumpy Old Queen?"

Miscues sink Walton


By PATRICK CASEY
The Walton Braves com-
mitted four turnovers and
played their worst game of
the year at a bad time as
Pensacola Catholic claimed.
a 37-14 win to wrap up the
District 1, Class 2A title.
' Keke Aguilar fumbled
the opening kickoff and Pen-
soacola Catholic recovered at
the Walton 30-yard line to
set up an 18-yard pass to
Alex Bast for a 7-0 lead less
than a minute into the con-
test.
I Walton responded with a
67-yard drive that took less
than three minutes as Issac
Jackson scored on a 15-yard
pass from junior quarter-
back Tarrell Bramlet to tie
the game at 7-7.
' The game settled into a
defensive battle until Cru-
saders quarterback David
Kooi tossed an interception
t. Walton's Beau Rushing,
who promptly returned the
ill-advised throw 29 yards
to the Catholic 27-yard line.


The Braves squandered the
opportunity, however, as
they failed to pick up a first
down in four plays.
Pensacola Catholic used
the defensive stand to
launch an 81-yard touch-
down drive as Kooi escaped
poor tackling to give the
Crusaders the lead with a
16-yard scoring run.
After a Walton punt, the
Crusaders drove to the Wal-
ton 18-yard line and Diego
Figueroa converted a 35-
yard field goal for a 17-7
halftime advantage.
Walton stopped the Cru-
saders on their first pos-
session of the second half,
then promptly marched 85
yards for a touchdown as Is-
sac Jackson ran in from 18
yards out after Will Brock
had made a sensational
catch on a fourth down play
to keep the drive alive.
It was all downhill from
there for Walton.
Pensacola Catholic re-
sponded with 'a 10-yard


pass to Devin Dukes as the
Braves could not stop the
passing attack of the Cru-
saders. Kooi carved up Wal-
ton's secondary as he com-
pleted 24-of-30 passes for
277 yards and three touch-
downs.
Walton committed turn-
overs on their next two pos-
sessions, despite moving the
football, and Catholic con-
verted on both drives as a
tired Braves defense ran out
of gas.
Walton harassed Kooi
most of the night, but the
Braves suffered their worst
tackling performance of the
year as Kooi slipped, tackles
and avoided big losses while
getting rid of the football
quickly. Walton recorded
four sacks and limited the
Crusaders to 124 rushing
yards through three quar-
ters before the turnovers be-
came insurmountable.
Issac Jackson had 120
rushing yards, but the pass-
ing attack sputtered as


Freeport falls to


the Crusaders blitzed line-
backers most of the night,
causing Bramlet to have to
scramble and throw on the
run. Bramlet was sacked
four times and fumbled un-
der duress late in the game
to foil any comeback at-
tempt.
The Crusaders have won
eight of the last nine meet-
ings and captured the dis-
trict crown with the win.
Walton will now face Mari-
anna on November 2 for the
runner-up position and a
berth into the state playoffs.
Marianna defeated Walton
38-35 last season, but has
dropped three straight con-
tests after a 4-0 start.
Walton (6-1) will host
West Florida Tech in a non-
district contest on Friday,
October 26 at Everett Yates
Memorial Stadium with
kickoff set for 7 p.m. West
Florida comes into the con-
test having lost 28 consecu-
tive games in the- regular
season.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, OCTOBER 25, 2007 PAGE 11-


Rutgers trips up UFS


By CHUCK HINSON
It seems to be the trend in
college football top 5-ranked
teams in the past three
weeks to feel the sting of
an unranked team. Rutgers
added the latest blow to the
No. 2-ranked University
of South Florida, as they


stunned the Bulls, 30-27.

It was the Rutgers' third-
string quarterback, Andrew
DePaola,,who tossed the 15-
yard touchdown in the third
quarter to seal the deal for
the Scarlet Knights. The
loss not only gave the Bulls


their first loss, but ended
their chances of going to the
big game in January.

The Bulls (6-1, 1-1) had
their perfect season come
to an'abrupt end and gave
Boston College the hopes
of moving to the No. 2 spot.


Ohio State still controlled
the No. 1 spot for the second
consecutive week.
Matt Grothe threw for
247 yards for the USF Bulls,
including a touchdown, and
ran for 58 yards. But it
was all about the Scarlet
Knights' defense and their


ability to take control of
the game, just like they did
when they tripped up third-
ranked Louisville last sea-
son.

The Bulls did have one
more chance in the final mo-
ments of the fourth quarter,


trailing Rutgers by three
points, to tie the score with a
field goal or attempt a touch-
down. Their final attempt, a
fourth-and-37 from the Rut-
gers 24 yard-line, proved to
be negative for the Bulls and
they left New Jersey with a
6-1 season record. .


Seminoles fall to Miami


By CHUCK HINSON
Like a bad curse, the
Seminoles fell again to the
Hurricanes, and lost their
third ACC conference game
of.the season, 37-29.
The scoring of both the
'Canes and the Seminoles
went back and forth through-
out the entire game. But in
the fourth quarter, Miami


came alive and scored two
touchdowns in 11 seconds,
one from a recovered Semi-
nole fumble.

For the first time since
1977, the two teams played
each other without a nation-
al title at stake. This is also
the first time since then that
neither team was ranked in


either the BCS or the AP
Top 25 rankings.
The Seminoles dominat-
ed until the fourth quarter
when the momentum shift-
ed towards Miami and they
took full control of the game.
After Kyle Wright was in-
jured and was replaced as
starting .quarterback for
the Hurricanes, Kirby Free-


man drove, the ball 83 yards
in less than two minutes,
to score and take the lead,
30-29, on a 13-yard pass to
Dedrick Epps with 1:15 re-
maining in the game.
He had only completed
one of eight passes until the
final moments of the game,
and then connected three
straight times. It was a dif-


ferent story for FSU quar-
terback Xavier Lee as he
was intercepted twice by
Miami safety Randy Phil-
lips, then fumbled the ball
after being hit by Miami's
Teraz McCray.
Lee also had a fumble
earlier in the game and com-
pleted 14 of 32 passes for 208
yards in his third start this


year. He also scored once for
the Seminoles.

The Seminoles, despite 71
of their first 73 ACC games
and two national title cham-
pionships, have had it rough
with losing 11 of their la,
15 regular season. They aro
also 14-21 against the Hur-
ricanes.


Bama stuns Vols


By CHUCK HINSON
Tuscaloosa came alive
and had a new outlook on
life when the Tide took
down No. 24-ranked Ten-
nessee and proved that Nick
Saban and his team had fi-
nally pulled it together and
had the talent. Bama blast-


ed Tennessee, 41-17.
John Parker Wilson
passed for a career high
363 yards and three touch-
downs. He also completed a
school record, tying 32 pass-
es in 46 attempts, including
touchdowns to D.J. Hall of
16 and two yards. He also


ran six times for 28 yards.

Alabama's D.J. Hall also
exploded on the field by set-
ting a new school record of
13 catches for 185 yards,
couples with a solid defense,
stopped and shut-down the
Tennessee team in the sec-


owid half of the game.
Freshman cornerback

Kareem Jackson had two in-
terceptions, including one to
halt Tennessee's most prom-
ising drive of the second half
and another against backup
Jonathon Crompton in the
final minutes of the fourth


quarter.
Alabama (6-2, 4-1) had
much to celebrate as they
got their biggest win over
Tennessee since 1986, af-
ter losing 10 of their 12 last
meetings. Among the re-
cords being broken in Tus-
caloosa over the weekend


was 'Bama's hard-hitting
defense and they outgained
the Vols 510-362 and held
the ball for nearly 38 miit*
utes. The 510 yards was
the most for the Tide in a
Southeast Conference game
since they played Arkansas
in 2003.


Gators bring down Wildcats


By CHUCK HINSON
Florida made their way to
the No. 9 Kentucky and reas-
sured the Wildcats that they
were the team to still beat
in the SEC. Tim Tebow and
the No. 14 Gators showed
that they were more than
capable of making their way
to the SEC Conference game
in December.
Tebow there% f,.-r 256
yards and a career-high tour


touchdown passes as they
rolled into Lexington, KY.,
as the underdog and rolled
out a 45-37 winner. It was a
slap in the face for the team
that only 10 days ago, wel-
comed LSU, the No. 1 team
in the nation, and knocked
them off the top spot.
The Gators are now tied
with South Carolina, who is
still reeling from their loss
to Vanderbilt, and Georgia


for first place in the SEC
East.
Tebow was held to just
78 rushing yards and the
Wildcats controlled much
of the game on defense. But
it was the junior's quarter-
back's arm that catapulted
the Gators into the driver's
seat and then ultimately
into the winner's circle, due
to. his connecting ori,18 of 25
passes. ]"


Florida led 21-10 at the
halftime, but the Wildcats
did make an avid attempt
to strike back in the second
half, supporting Heismann
hopeful Andre Woodson
who also had his best game
of the season with 415 yards
and five touchdown passes.
With under four minutes,
Kentucky cut the lead to a
touchdown when Woodson
found Dicky Lyons and the


Cats went in for the score.
That would be the final score
for Kentucky, while the Ga-
tors took the ball in for one
more score for the night.
Kentucky, being cheered
on by a record crowd of 71,
024 at Commonwealth Sta-
dium, thought they would
be able to take the game and
go in as the SEC favorite,
but were unable to top the
Gators drive. Tebow was an-


other threat to the Wildca
defense since he could not
only throw the ball, but was
able run in for the score as
well.

The Wildcats have ncq
beaten Florida since 1986.
The longest current streak
in th iation between majoy
opponents who have played
ever year without intec_
ruption.

Nettles, Wisconsin


off to 6-2 start


By PATRICK CASEY
Josh Nettles, a 2006 grad-
uate of Walton High School

Transportation Authority

reconsiders toll-route through

Nokuse Plantation


By ANN McQUEEN
The Northwest Florida
Transportation Corridor Au-
thority voted to consider an
alternate option to running
a new four-lane toll road
through Nokuse Plantation
at a public meeting held in
Apalachicola on Thursday,
Oct. 18. The board instruct-
ed HDR Engineering, its en-
gineering firm, to consider
"every effort" to align with
the existing SR 20 in central
Walton County as the Free-
port West Bay Connector.
M.C. Davis, the local con-
servationist who established
the 50,000-acre Nokuse
Plantation, said, "I believe
this is in line with the gov-
ernor's position to improve
what we have first before
we start impacting limited

In a letter dated Oct. 15,

The letter reads, in part,

More Holiday Road "bad karma"


THIS PIRATE, a descendant of the famous John Hawk-
ins, filled participants in on the swashbuckling adventures
of Gasparillo in the local area.


By DOTTY NIST
A Holiday Road business
owner is facing alleged code
violations in connection
with expansion of a noncon-
forming land use and un-
permitted outdoor storage
containers at the side of his
building.
Walton County Code En-
forcement officers brought
the alleged violations before
the county Code Enforce-
ment Board on Oct. 18 after
the officers were unable to
resolve the matter with the
business owner, Perry Woo-


ten of C&J Land Company.
The charges resulted from
an investigation originating
with a June 6 complaint
by Holiday Road residents
Mike and Shari Judkins.,
The Judkins' home is across
the street from Wooten's
building, in which he rents
space to a number of busi-
nesses.
Code Enforcement Board
Officer Buddy Wright re-
layed the determination
of Pat Blackshear, county
planning and development
services director, that Woo-


ten's business had come into
violation when an additional
tenant, O.C.'s Towing, had
been added at his building.
Code enforcement's posi-
tion is that Wooten's busi-
ness is a nonconforming
land use that cannot legally
be expanded.
Lois La Seur, Walton
County planning manager,
testified that "the extent to
which that use is grandfa-
thered" was documented by
the county in 2002, consist-

Mother continues to fulfill


slain son's wishes


By JEFFREY POWELL

"I wanted to keep Timo-
thy's dream alive a little bit
longer." said Glenda Pen-
ton. Timothy's dream was
simple. He wanted the chil-
dren of Afghanistan to have
something to hold and play
with.
Army Sgt. Timothy Paul
Padgett was deployed to Af-
ghanistan in March of 2007.
Upon his arrival, he realized
that the children of this war-
torn nation had, very few
things children in America
take for granted. After see-
ing the need of these chil-
dren, Padgett e-mailed his
mother, Glenda Penton, ad-
ministrative assistant with
the Walton County Supervi-
sor of Elections, and asked
her to send him donated
stuffed animals for. the chil-
dren.


"Timmy. saw these chil-
dren in need," Penton Said.
"He just wanted to bring
some joy into their lives."
Tragically, Sgt. Padgett
was killed in action on May
8, 2007 and was unable to
see his hopes come to frui-
tion. In true motherly fash-
ion Penton has continued to
collect and ship the stuffed
animals to Afghanistan. "At
this time, I have enough
animals to send throughout
the holidays," said Penton.
The challenge now is the
mounting postal costs. Ac-
cording to Penton, an av-
eragqesized box costs .about-
$12 in postage."
"I hate to ask the public
for anything else because
they have already been so
generous," she said. "But I
cannot do all of this out of
my own pocket."
Citizens interested in as-


sisting Penton in her efforts
can make monetary dona-
tions at either the Supervi-
sor of Elections office in De-
Funiak Springs or the South
Walton Courthouse Annex
in Santa Rosa Beach.
Later this month, Penton
will travel to Fort Bragg to
meet Padgett's Army unit
members as they arrive
from their Afghanistan de-
ployment.
"I feel like it is important
for me to be a part of their
welcome home committee."
she said.
Since her son's death,
Penton has forced -herself
to return to lher day to day
routine, an effort she says
would be impossible without
help from above.
"The Lord has provided
me with a peace that sur-
passes all understanding,"
Penton said with a smile.


LANDING FROM FRONT


By BILL KACZOR,
Associated Press
The Florida House over-
whelmingly passed a prop-
erty tax plan Monday that
is more complex and offers
more relief to non-home-
owners than a Senate ver-
sion, creating a potential
stalemate between the
chambers. Voters then may
be left without a tax-cutting
proposal on the Jan. 29
presidential primary ballot.
The House voted 108-2
for its proposed state consti-
tutional amendment during
a special session called by
Senate President Ken Pruitt
and House Speaker Marco
Rubio after a judge removed
an earlier legislative pro-
posal from' the ballot.
If legislative leaders can
work out differences be-
tween the chambers, law-
makers will vote on a final
version and then separately
on a bill that would put the
new plan on the Jan. 29 bal-
lot. Those votes, though, will
not come before Thursday.
/Rubio, R-West Miami,
said he was confident an
agreement will be reached
before an Oct. 29 deadline
for placing a proposal on the
primary ballot.
"This is a big issue and I
think we're very close," Ru-
bio said. "If you look at what
the Senate passed and what
the House passed, there's
only a couple differences."
The House gave strong
bipartisan support to its
proposal in contrast to a
nearly party-line vote in the
Senate.
The only no votes in the
House were cast by Reps.
Curtis Richardson and Lo-
ranne Ausley, both Talla-
hassee Democrats, who were
worried about the loss of tax
revenue in small, rural com-
munities that already are
financial constrained.
The Senate last week
passed a proposal that had
been worked out in advance,
with Gov,. Charlie Crist and'
leaders of both chambers.
It would focus most cuts
on primary homes, known as
homesteads, which already
have protection against rap-
idly rising assessments. The
House proposal would go
farther by providing similar
protection for second homes,
businesses and other non-
homestead properties.
The existing Save Our
Homes Amendment now


limits annual assessment
increases to three percent
for homesteads. The House
proposal would cap non-
homestead properties at five
percent.
The House and Senate
plans both would offer hom-
eowners bigger exemptions
and the ability to take at
least part of their Save Our
Homes benefits with them
when they 'move known as
"portability" although they
differ on the details.
Pruitt, R-Port St. Lucie,
earlier Monday was uncer-
tain whether there would be
any point in coming back to
the Capitol if an agreement
cannot be reached.
"We do not know at this
time whether you will need
to return to Tallahassee,"
Pruitt wrote in an e-mail to
fellow senators. "Thank you
for your patience."
Crist said he prefers the
Senate plan and considers
it more "doable" but that
there's room for compromise
by adding some elements
from the House version to
the final package. "I think
we're in a pretty good place,"
Crist said. "I think there's
some very, very good discus-
sions going on."
House sponsors say their
proposal would save taxpay-
ers about $11 billion over
the first four years com-
pared to nearly $10 billion
for the Senate plan.
Under the Senate plan,
homeowners would see an
average savings of $240
next year. For homeowners
who move, the savings could
exceed $800 next year.
The House plan, based on
median housing values in
each county, is more compli-
cated. Average homeowner
savings would range from
$82 in Liberty County to
$588 in Broward County.
For those who move the
average would range from
$202 in Liberty to $1,806 in
Miami-Dade County. ''
Senate Democratic Lead-'
er Steve Geller, of Cooper
City, said he would just as
soon not return to Tallahas-
see. He said the tax plans
in both chambers are just
too complicated, noting the
-Senate turned down a sim-
pler version Democrats had
offered.
Lawmakers should spend
more time on the issue and
then put it on the ballot for
the November 2008 general


election when voter turnout
will be much greater than
the primary, he said.
"The more complicated
it is, the less opportunity to
examine it, the less likely
we are to put it on the Janu-
ary ballot," Geller said.
Agreeing on a tax-cutting
plan is just half of the equa-
tion. That takes a three-
fifths vote in each chamber.
Putting it on, the Jan. 29
ballot is the other half. That
takes a three-fourths vote in
each chamber because it's
not a general election.
The 40-member Sen-
ate approved its proposal'
26-11, two votes-more than
the minimum. No vote has
yet been taken in either
chamber on the Jan. 29 bal-
lot placement. Sponsors,
though, would need to find
four more votes to get the 30
they would need in the Sen-
ate.
The Senate vote was
largely along party lines
with Republicans for and
Democrats against. Two
Democrats and two Republi-
cans, though, crossed party
lines. Three more Demo-
crats were absent, but they
were in effect no votes.
Lawmakers on Oct. 12
convened in special session -
their fourth this year after
Chief Circuit Judge Charles
A. Francis of Tallahassee
ruled a proposal passed at
a June special session had
a misleading and inaccu-
rate ballot summary. It said
the measure would protect
homestead benefits under
the existing Save Our Homes
Amendment although it ac-
tually would phase them
out, Francis concluded.
The replacement propos-
als in both chambers would
leave Save Our Homes in-
tact. The push for tax relief
is in response to soaring
property values in recent
years that have increased
assessments, particularly
for properties without Save
Our Homes protection.
"Everyone agrees that
non-homesteads have taken
the brunt of this property
tax crisis," Rubio said. "We
have an opportunity to ad-
dress it. That's what our
members saw when they put
that in the bill and I tend to
agree with them on that."

AP writers David Royse
and David Heller contrib-
uted to this report.


event was to occur at Cess-
na Landing, but was moved.
due to inclement weather.

Cessna Landing is lo-
cated on CR-393N, adjacent
to Hogtowni Bayou, and is
a popular park for swim-
ming, boating and fishing.
Project improvements in-
clude the replacement .of an
outdated septic tank with
a new lift station, resurfac-
ing of the main driveway,
expanded parking includ-,
ing handicapped designated


spaces and new playground
equipment. Additionally
the shoreline was replanted
with native vegetation to
aid in shoreline stabilization
and water filtration while
providing wildlife habitat.
The Cessna Park project
is one of several initiatives
managed by the CBA in co-
operation with local, region-
al and national agencies to
fulfill ita mission of sustain-
ing and providing optimum
utilization of the Choctaw-
hatchee Basin Watershed.


Other agencies involved
in the Cessna Landing
improvements were the
Northwest Florida Water
Management District, Wal-
ton County commissioners,
SWTDC, Regional Utilities
and the U.S. Fish and Wild-
life Service.

"We are thrilled to have
the CBA in our region," said
Meadows. "They are an as-
set to the community and
we look forward to working
with them again."


SEASON .FROM FRONT


Some of the .stories were
"honest-to-goodness true"
and others were meant to be
taken "with a grain of salt."

Donald Comer, whose
family's company, Avondale
Mills, owned the property
for decades, described how
his uncle Hugh was fright-
ened by the apparition of a
long-deceased ship captain
while spending the night in
the lodge, afterwards vowing
never to stay in that room
again. It is speculated that
this was the shipwrecked
captain after whom Phillips
Inlet was named. Partici-
pants were then surprised
by a reenactment of the ap-


parition.
Margaret Hicks Savage's
family acquired the proper-
ty in the late 1920s, owning
Camp Helen prior to Avon-
dale Mills and constructing
a number of the buildings.
Savage described growing
up at Camp Helen, when
the area was so rural that
it was necessary to drive all
the way to Panama City for
supplies.
Savage said that after the
state acquired Camp Helen
in the 1990s, park person-
nel asked her if there had
ever been a death at Camp
Helen during the time her
family lived on the property.
People in boats on the lake


had at times told rangers
that they had seen a small
boy on the Camp Helen pier,
dressed ini old-fashioned
clothing. She said she re-
sponded that,indeed, tragi-
cally, her small nephew had
drowned in the lake while
visiting from Chicago, when
his nanny left him alone
by the lake to prepare his
lunch.
That gave the rangers
,their answer, Savage said.
"And that's a true story,"
she added..

This was the second year
for the annual Camp Helen
Ghost Tour, which is a fund-
raiser for the state park.

Point Washington tour celebrates

sweetness of community life


By CHRIS MANSON
The Historic Point Wash-
ington Association held its
first walking tour Sunday.
The tour included 20 points
of interest within the small
Walton County community
founded in the late 19th
century.
The association is less
than two years old, accord-
ing to Marge Crawford.
She coordinated the tour
to make the entire county
aware of Point Washing-
ton's historical significance.
"I live here myself, and I
didn't know some of the his-
tory," said Crawford. "It's
amazing."
Randy Harelson, the
group's president, described


I-- ... ..


his organization as "a group
of interested citizens who
really.care about the history
of Point Washington."
The tour began at Bay El-
ementary School. Van Ness
Butler, a Point Washington
resident since the 1930s,
offered some background
on the town's early role in
the timber industry. Butler
noted that before the school
was built in 1938, he attend-
ed first and second grades at
the local Methodist church.
Butler's father served as
the school's principal for 30
'years. Harelson added that
Butler had been instrumen-
tal in keeping Bay Elemen-
tary's doors open over the
years.


The crowd was split into
five groups, each walking in
a different direction. Par-
ticipants were given hand-
drawn maps with points of
interest described on the re-
verse side. Some made the
trek in golf carts.
Grace Marse's group
made its first stop at the
Point Washington Commu-
nity Cemetery. There, Jon-
nye Butler noted that the
oldest known grave dated
back to 1884. There are two
"work days" each. year de-

The rain clouds
cleared, the tem-
peratures dropped
and the wine, food
and music took cen-
ter stage at this past
weekend's Coastal
Wine and Cuisine
Festival at Rose-
mary Beach. More
than 3,000 people
attended dinners,
concerts, tasting,
and a walk-around
brunch, while get-
ting a nice cool break
from the rain.

Despite torrential down-
pours and several tornadoes
,spotted throughout Thurs-
day, the culinary and wine
'event of the season took off
-last Friday evening and
'.people from all over the
South enjoyed local and na-
tional selections of wine, en-
tertainment and restau-
rants.
On Friday evening, the
-Rosemary Beach town hall
and the Courtyard, enter-
tained nearly 200 guests at
two separate dinners. The
two events were held to not
only feed people, but also
-educate them on the correct
'wines to serve withreach of


Art Clips

the five courses and a chance
to sample cuisine by local
chef, Tim Creehan.
Michael Bryan, executive
director of the Atlanta Wine
School, was also on hand to
explain the different varia-
tions of wine, what wine is
best suited with what meal,,
and gave a brief history of
the wine making and distrib-
uting business in America.

Both events had been sold
out for several weeks, and
many have already begun to
register for next year.
Special guest winemakers,
Gary Pisoni and Lisa Peju,
talked about their wine selec-
tions and their vineyards,
both located in Napa Valley,
CA. Both winemakers had
long histories of winemaking
and are considered two of the
foremost winemakers in the
nation.
On Saturday, the gates


t I J .- 1


opened and nearly 1,000
people enjoyed a variety of
wines from vineyards from
all across the nation. A vari-
ety of wines were served
throughout the day and then
were offered for sale until
the conclusion of the tasting.
Festival goers also were
able to view art by local art-
ists Ryan Ivy and even catch
the Florida/Kentucky game
on the big screen under the
comfort tent. Chef Tim
Creehan and the Beachwalk
Cafe, along with Sunset
.Charlie's Restaurant, pro-
vided cuisine samplings.
More than a dozen winer-
ies and winemakers from all
over the state and through-
out Sonoma, CA, took part
in the wine demonstrations,
pouring, tasting and sales
for the weekend.
As the festival wrapped up
for the day, smooth jazz fans
began to make their way to


the St. Augustine Green to
hear British smooth jazz art-
ists Acoustic Alchemy in con-
cert. The event, sponsored by
WSBZ 106.3 radio, brought
in nearly 500 people for the
evening concert that cel-
ebrated not only the cooler
weather, but the grape and
vino that was presented
throughout the weekend.
After a good night's sleep
and a break from wine
tasting and great smooth
jazz, the gates opened once
again and the Walk-Around
Brunch took place on the
Western Green. The event
wrapped up three days of
wine and culinary bliss for
most of the festival goers.
More than a dozen restau-
rants including Cowgirl
Kitchen, the Boat House,
Fire, Brennan's, Townsend
Catering, Cuvee Beach, and
several others, were passing,
out dishes topped .with
caviar, shrimp and grits, beef
stew over grits and bananas
Foster, just to get your
mouth watering.
The event hosted more
than 400 guests and was
earmarked as the topping on
the event cake for the
Florida Panhandle.
The Coastal Wine and Cui-
sine Festival will return next
year to Rosemary Beach, but
has stops in Biloxi, MS; Ba-
ton Rouge, LA., and Orange
Beach, AL., prior to its re-
turn in 2008.


NEARLY 1,000
wine enthusiasts
:gathered on the
east lawn at Rose-
mary Beach to
,sample, hear and
.see demonstra-
tions and just to be
seen at the Cuisine
'and Wine Festival.
More than 100
varietiess of wine
*was poured and
was for sale at this
-past weekend's
'event.

Refuge host Howl-O-Ween


BOOK LOVERS CONVERGE at the Friends of the Coastal Branch Library's sale Oct.
20. "We had a lot of books this time," said President Donna Vann. "More than usual." The
Friends generally hold book sales three times a year. All unsold items are donated to local
charities. (Photo by Chris Manson)


ROUTE FROM FRONT


also states that the current
proposed alignment for the
bypass "constitutes a new
threat that will require spe-
cial management consid-
erations. As such, we have
been advised by our solici-
tors that we may not be able
to exclude these lands from
critical habitat designa-
tion."
Chris Stahl, an envi-
ronmental specialist with
the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection,
hailed the board's decision
to re-consider aligning with
State Highway 20. "That
would please us greatly," he
said at Thursday's meeting.
The Transportation Au-
thority's master plan in-
cludes several proposed toll
routes linking eight counties
from Escambia on the west
to Wakulla on the east, with
north-south connectors and
feeders in several places. It
was adopted April 5, 2007.
"The master plan is a
working, breathing docu-
ment. Based on public in-
put, that document will be
changed. Our minds are
not made up. We're making
the best decisions that we
cani based on thf ihf6'ria-
,tion-~e have," said Randall
McElheney,,, chairman of the
Transportation Authority
board.
By law, the board must
update its master plan
by July 1 every year. An
amended plan will be re-
leased in May 2008.
Nokuse Plantation, a pri-
vate conservation project
established by Davis and
Sam Shine, stretches from
the eastern edge of Eglin


Air Force Base to the Choc-
tawhatchee River at the
eastern boundary of Walton
County. Several siate agen-
cies, including the Florida
Department 'of Environmen-
tal Protection using Florida
Forever funds, have pur-
chased conservation ease-
ments, helping to insure
that the property remains
in conservation in perpetu-
ity.
When the board was
asked about its authority
to acquire lands owned by
taxpayer-funded organiza-
tions and programs such
as Florida Forever, Tommy
Barfield, from the District
3 office of the Florida De-
partment of Transportation,
said, "Those impacts can be
mitigated with money or
acreage (purchased by the
Department of Transpor-
tation for that purpose)...
There are ways to get
around that. We're commit-
ted to wildlife corridors with
the toll roads. There will be
some impacts, but they can
be minimized."
Barfield was sitting in
for Larry Kelly, district sec-
retary of the Department
of Transportation serving
Northwest, Florida ;and ,ex-
officio member of the Trans-
portation Authority board.
The Northwest Florida
Transportation Corridor
Authority was established
in 2005 by former Gov. Jeb
Bush. It is charged with
identifying areas where con-
gestion, safety, and evacua-
tion times can be improved
on U.S. 98; enhancing eco-
nomic development; and
building a network of feeder


roads, connectors and by-
passes throughout the re-
gion that ease congestion
and improve mobility.
Its operating budget,
which pays for public meet-
ings, informational bro-
chures and printed mate-
rial, a Web site, and more,
is part of the original ap-
propriation administered
through the Department of
Transportation. Future op-
erating funding for the au-
thority was recently vetoed
by Gov. Charlie Crist.
The estimated, prelimi-
nary cost of the proposed
network, of toll roads totals
over $7.7 billion, in 2005
dollars. Though sources of
funding for building the
roads will be determined in
future phases of planning,
they will likely come from
bond sales and repaid by
tolls collected from travelers
over a period of years.
Its board of directors con-
sists of: chairman Randall
McElheney of Bay County;
vice-chairman Jay Odom of
Okaloosa County; secretary/
treasurer Robert Montgom-
ery of Santa Rosa County;
Eddie Dixon of Escambia
County; James Anders of
Walton County; Stephen
Nprris of Gulf County;
Cheryl Sanders of Franklin
County; and T.W. Maurice
Langston of Wakulla Coun-
ty. Mike Duncan serves as
general counsel.

The Transportation Au-
thority's next public meet-
ing is scheduled for Nov. 15
in Gulf Breeze. For more in-
formation, visit www.nwft-
ca.com.

ing of four tenant businesses
occupying four bays.

Currently two bays are
rented out. One is rented
to Carquest, she said, and
one to a cabinet shop. When
O.C.'s Towing moved into
the bay already containing
Destin Dixie Electric, divid-
ing that space, Blackshear
made the determination
that that an expansion of
the nonconformity had oc-
curred, La Seur explained.
She added that the busi-
ness owner was told he could
appeal this determination to
the Zoning Board of Adjust-
ments but chose not to.
Wright noted that in Au-
gust officers first observed
three large storage contain-
ers that had been placed
to one side of the building
- and that the containers
were also determined to
be a violation as an expan-
sion of the nonconforming
use. La Seur added that the
business owner had failed to
obtain a permit for the stor-
age containers as required
by code.
"There's a lot of history
here," noted attorney Lisa
Minshew, representing Woo-
ten. "This is not a grandfa-
thering case," she added.
Minshew told the board
members that C&J Land
Company has owned the
building on Holiday Road
since 1994, and that it had
been built nine years earlier
in, 1985, long before Walton
County's first land develop-
ment code was adopted, set-
ting forth land-use classifi-
cations.
Minshew observed that


Wooten's property has been
the subject of past litiga-
tion and has been before the
code enforcement board pre-
viously.
She referenced a perma-
nent injunction by Walton
County Circuit Judge Lewis
R. Lindsey in the mid-1990s
in which the judge prohibit-
ed the county from restrict-
ing truck traffic to and from
Holiday Road businesses as
it had attempted to do in
Ordinance 96-20. Lindsey's
decision was later affirmed
by the First District Court
of Appeal, she added.
Minshew's interpretation
of the judge's order was that
it also prohibited the county
from "ever changing the zon-
ing of this property," from
the one, she explained, that
was applicable at that time:
town center. That designa-'
tion allows not only residen-
tial but light industrial and
a number of types of busi-
nesses, with no restrictions
on storage, tenants, or num-
ber of business occupants.
Minshew also presented
evidence regarding a 2002
code enforcement board de-
cision affecting the proper-
ty, in which the court order
was upheld when a violation
regarding outdoor storage of
supplies was alleged.
Mike Burke, interim
county attorney, argued that
Minshew's interpretation
of Lindsey's order was "far
overreaching" in saying that
the property had to perma-
nently keep the town center
land-use designation.
"All this case does is
strike down this ordinance
(96-20)," Burke said.


Board member David
Kramer said he did not see
how the current use of the
property could be consid-
ered nonconforming "when
light industrial is what it is
supposed to be," according
to the court decision.
Burke encouraged the
board members to read and
focus on the judge's actual
order, which, he stated, was
limited to prohibiting en-
forcement of the truck traf-
fic ordinance.
"He has to operate that
business in the confines of
how it existed at that time,"
Burke contended.
Bill Wyrough, code en-
forcement board attorney,
saw the case as involving
two separate issues, the
storage and the tenant mat-
ter.
"I'm not sure we have
enough information for a
reasonable decision," he
said.
Wyrough suggested hav-
ing the two attorneys, Min-
shew and Burke, submit
legal briefs to aid the board
members in reaching a deci-
sion as to whether the prop-
erty is to be considered town
center or a nonconforming
use.
The board members vot-
ed unanimously to table
the item until the following
month to allow time for the
briefs to be submitted and
reviewed in advance of the
next meeting.

The case is scheduled to
be taken up at that meeting,
which is set for 6 p.m. on
Nov. 15 at the South Walton
Courthouse Annex.


Alaqua Animal Refuge
and Alys Beach are teaming
up to host Howl-O-Ween, a
Halloween party intended
for four-legged friends and
their owners.
The event will be held on
the lawn adjacent to Fon-
ville Press, from 2- 5 p.m.,
on Saturday, Oct. 27.

caricatures and a Lick-or-
Treat Kissing Booth.
"We are really excited
about Howl-O-Ween," stat-
ed Laurie Hood, founder
and director of Alaqua Ani-


ture.
Joyce Sunday, stationed
at the entrance of the Point
Washington Methodist
Church, is a descendant
of the church's founding
pastor, John Wesley., The
church continues to hold
three services every Sunday
,for its 400-plus members.
"I've seen" more people
in Point Washington today
than I have in the 13 years
I've lived here," observed
Marse as her group ap-
proached the old ferry land-
ing. David Miller, a descen-
dant of Confederate General
William Miller, described
the site as "the gateway to
the world" for the town's
earliest citizens.
The tour lasted about two


mal Refuge. "What a great
way to celebrate Halloween
while also helping to save
the life of an abandoned or
lost animal. We greatly ap-
* preciate Alys Beach's efforts
to turn a fundraiser into a
fun-filled event for the whole
family and hope that all ani-
mal lovers will attend."
Dogs and people plan-
ning to attend the event
are asked to RSVP to Kelli

WATER CONSERVATION TIPS


Time your shower to keep it under 5 minutes.
You'll save up to 100 gallons a month.


When doing laundry, match the water level to
the size of the load.


Teach your children to turn the faucet off tightly
after each use.


Make sure you know where your master water
shut-off valve is located. This could save gallons
of water and damage to your home if a pipe were
to burst.
--*
Use a hose nozzle and turn off the water while
you wash your car and save more than 100 gal-
lons.


Encourage your friends and nieghbors to be part
of a water-conscious community.


S Choose new water-saving appliances, like wash-
ing machines that save up to 20 gallons per load.


Encourage your school system and local gov-
ernment to help develop and promote a water
conservation ethic among children and adults.

zle near the end. Afterwards,
refreshments were served at
the B and B Store.
"We didn't anticipate
having more than 50 peo-
ple, but we had over 60,"
said Harelson. "Everyone
seemed to really enjoy it. It
made a point of what a com-
munity we. have." Harelson
is a relative newcomer as a
Point Washington resident,
but he has known several of
the families here for over 20
years.

Harelson said the next
meeting of the Historic
Point Washington Associa-
tion was scheduled for Sun-
dayjDec. 2, at 3 p.m. in the
B and B Store.

MARY THOMAS HERRINGTON BETTY THOMAS




Thomas sisters remembered with


OWC nursing endowment


Sisters, Betty Thomas, an
Alabama native who went
to Laurel Hill School, and
Mary Thomas Herrington,
who lived in Crestview, were
never far from the class-
room. Betty was a highly
.-regarded university nurs-
ing professor while Mary
was a history teacher and
later a librarian at South-
side Elementary School in
Crestview.
Their legacy to teaching
and learning will continue
after a $50,000 contribu-
tion to the Okaloosa-Walton
College (OWC) Foundation
to establish the S. Betty
Thomas and Mary Thomas
Herring-ton Nursing Schol-
arship Etrndrvmenr at OWC.
Dale Rice Jr., p,-t presi-
dent of the OW\VC Founda-
tion and now a trustee with
the college, assisted in se-
curing the gift to honor the
Thomas sisters.
"This donation really honors


the service these two women
provided over many years in
their professions as educa-
tors," said Rice. "I know the
family is very proud that
Betty and Mary will be per-
manently tied to the nurs-
ing program at OWC."
There.is a strong connec-
tion for Rice to the Thomas
and Herrington families. As
the story goes, Mary Thom-
as Herrington was teaching
a course in modern family
living when she had a ca-
reer day and invited a local
attorney Ferrin Campbell.
In her class was a student
named Dale Rice Sr. Rice
later told his son that it was
in Mary Herrington's class
that he decided to become
an attorney.*
According to Rice and
others who knew the sis-
ters, Betty Thomas, who
,never married, gained her
registered nurse diploma
at Baptist Hospital in New


Orleans before graduating
from Florida State and earn-
ing her masters in nursing
education at Columbia Uni-
versity. She returned south
to teach at Florida State
University and Troy State
University.
"I learned that Aunt
Betty, as she was known by
many, had four rules for life
and teaching that we can
all benefit from,"- said Rice.
"Aunt Betty always said,
'Improve someone's life,
do more than is expected,
make time for people, and if
something is wrong, make it
right."'
Betty Thomas' life was
cut short at age 57 by a
heart attack in 1990 despite
being a" hearty 'soul' who
would come back. to Lau-
rel Hill during breaks from
classes at Columbia Univer-
sity in New York and drive
logging trucks at her fa-
ther's veneer mill in Laurel


Hill. Her sister Mary, who
earned her degree at Troy
State and later gained a li-
brary science certification
from FSU, was married to
long-time Okaloosa County
teacher and principal E.L.
Herrington. Mary died at
age 80 in March 2006.
Dr. Bob Richburg, OWC
president, said the contribu-
tion made on behalf of the
Thomas sisters is eligible for
the state matching program.
He explained that once the
endowment is complete, ,it
will provide funds for as
many as four nursing schol-
arships every two years.

"Our college is honored
to help remember these
two women \iwho dedicated
their lives to teaching and
we appreciate the work of
Date'Rice and others who
have increased scholarship
opportunities for our stu-
