Alabama man arrested


after striking deputy,


fleeing in vehicle


The Walton County Sher-
-iffs Office (WCSO) has ar-
rested Christopher C. Riv-
ers, 26, of Wedowee, AL.
and charged him with three
counts of attempted mur-
der, one count of fleeing and
eluding, one count of giving
a false name to law enforce-
ment, one count of escape,
and one count of criminal
mischief. Rivers will also be
charged with several traffic
violations in connection with
a vehicular pursuit. Rivers
was taken into custody after
a nearly nine-hour manhunt
through the northwestern
part of DeFuniak Springs
on Oct. 28.
Shortly before 2 a.m. on
Oct. 28, a WCSO deputy
initiated a routine traffic
stop at the fairgrounds in
DeFuniak Springs. Within a
few minutes, another deputy
arrived on scene to provide
initial backup. After mak-
ing initial contact with the


occupants, an active war-
rant from Alabama for the
driver was confirmed. The
driver allegedly attempted
to strike one of the deputies
with his vehicle in an at-
tempt to flee. Deputies fired
at the vehicle in an attempt
to stop the driver's actions. A
pursuit ensued northbound
on SR-83 and the suspect
wrecked the vehicle at- the
intersection of SR-83 and
Haigh Road. The suspect
fled on foot from there. More
units, including the WCSO
Aviation Unit and a canine
search team, were sum-
moned to the scene. Upon
notification of the incident,
Sheriff Ralph Johnson re-
quested further assistance
-from the Florida Depart-
ment of Law Enforcement
Crime Scene Investigations
Unit and a Florida Depart-'
ment of Corrections canine
tracking team from Holmes
County.


A female passenger, the
other occupant of the vehi-
cle, was detained as a wit-
ness. She was transported
to HealthMark for "medical
issues not related to this
incident," according to a
WCSO release.
Rivers is also a wanted
fugitive in Alabama, with
an active warrant for Viola-
tion of Probation for Escape.
Rivers was struck once in
the left hand by gunfire from
deputies after he attempted
to run them over with his
vehicle. He was taken into
custody and transported to
HealthMark for treatment,
and scheduled upon release
to be transported to the Wal-
ton County Jail.
Members of the Florida
Department of Corrections
Canine Team from Okaloo-
sa County and the Florida
Highway Patrol also assist-
ed in the manhunt and ap-
prehension of Rivers.

THE WALTON COUNTYBoard of County Commissioners voted 3-2 on Oct. 23 to deny a
land-use change requested for the purpose of expanding a borrow pit operation on Rock Hill
Road.




Commissioners,



nix borrow pit



expansion


By DOTTY NIST
Quality of life consider-
ations prevailed on Oct. 23,
when a 3-2 vote of the Wal-
ton County Board of Coun-
ty Commissioners (BCC)
nipped plans for expansion
of a borrow pit "in the bud."
The vote followed tes-
timony by a group of Rock
Hill Road area residents,
who urged the commission-
ers not to allow any more
property in their area to be
used for borrow pits.
Tim Tindle had request-
ed approval of a large-scale
amendment that would
have reclassified two par-
cels, about a quarter-mile
north of Rock Hill Road,
from Estate Residential to
General Agriculture, in or-
der to allow for the expan-
sion of an existing borrow
pit operation.
The request before the
commissioners at this time
was for the land use change
only. Actual approval of the


borrow pit expansion would
have been undertaken as a
separate process, at a later
date in public forum. The
large-scale land-use amend-
ment would also have been
subject to state review.
The amendment had pre-
viously been on the com-
mission agenda on Sept. 25,
when the applicant request-
ed that consideration of the
item be postponed until the
following month, to allow
time for a meeting to work
with concerned neighbors.


"They'v'e had
their chance,"
said resident Randy
Cox.


On Oct. 23, the meeting
had still not been held, but
Tindle's representative Kent
Hatcher asked for another


30-day extension so that the
meeting could be set up. The
residents called for the com-
missioners to deny the re-
quest rather than grant the
extension.
District 4 Commissioner
Sara Comander spoke out for
the residents being allowed
to testify, since this was the
second time they had come
out to attend a commission
meeting at which this issue
was to be addressed. Some
said they had been required
to take time off work to at-
tend.
"They've had their
chance," said resident Ran-
dy Cox, speaking. of the ap-
plicants. Cox said he lives
1,000 feet from the area
proposed for the land-use
change.
"It's getting to the point
where it's really getting
dangerous," testified Rock
Hill resident Dale O'Brien,

Paxton native Alto
Straughn is one of four Flor-
ida farmers who have been
selected for induction into
the Florida Agricultural
Hall of Fame in 2008.
"If you're familiar with
farming in Florida, there's
not a lot of big agricultural
farming in north central
Florida," said Straughn, who
currently lives in Waldo. "So
it really is a big deal."
Straughn found out about
the honor, about a month
ago, but knew he had been
nominated. "When the ap-
plication was made, they
had to get me involved," he
said.
Straughn grew up in New
Harmony, the middle of five
children. He graduated from
Paxton High School and still
comes back to visit once or
twice a year.
In 1952, Straughn began
classes at the University of
Florida. "Graduating from
college was unique at the
time," he said. Straughn
worked for the university for
31 years, retiring in 1989.
The hall of fame induction


is based solely on Straughn's
work in the advancement of
commercial agriculture in
Florida. He spent 40 years
growing watermelons and
introduced seedless water'-
melons in the state.
Straughn said, his big"
gest accomplishments were
in Florida's $40 million a
year blueberry industry. His
500-acre Straughn Farms ifi
Gainesville is responsible
for nearly one-third of all
the blueberries grown in
Florida for the last decade. '
Straughn recently re-
turned from a 16-day vaca-
tion in China. "'They still
have a 70-percent popula-,
tion in farming, as opposed,
to about two percent in this,
country," he said. "I talked'
to a few. people there, who
didn't know what a blueber-
ry was.'
The other inductees 'are
"Pete" Clemons, of Okeecho-
bee, Hugh Malakowsky Engr.
lish, of Labelle, and Frig
Stein Jr., of Belle Glade.
The induction will tak'
place Feb. 12, 2008 during
the Florida State Fair i
Tampa.

tended personnel specialist
training at Fort Polk, LA.
graduating first in his class
in September 1971. Upon ar-
riving at his National Guard
duty station well prepared
to be a personnel specialist,
"I was immediately assigned
the job of driving a 10-ton
truck and hauling cargo,"
Overstreet said. "That was
one of many reasons that
I decided to transfer to the
Air Force."
Air Force Reserve train-
ing allowed Overstreet to,
earn highest level training
in four career areas: Envi-
ronmental, Training, Trans-
portation, and Services.
While serving as a reservist
Overstreet performed vari-
ous short tours to Germany,
Belgium, and Italy. During

over six months there. Dur-
ing his active duty time
Overstreet was selected as
the Senior NCO of the Quar-
ter and was awarded several
medals including the Com-
mendation Medal and the
Achievement Medal. "My
principal job during Opera-
tion Desert Storm was to
locate and store 80,000 body
bags and have 12 morticians
on 24 hour call. I'm very
thankful that we didn't need
those body bags," Overstreet
said.
While completing his 35
years of military service,
Overstreet pursued a "regu-
lar full time job" by working
for over 16 years as a teach-
er and coach at Fort Wal-
ton Beach High School and
at Niceville High School.
In 1993 Overstreet began
work as an environmental
scientist at Eglin Air Force
Base later transferring to
Hurlburt Field where he
currently works. Overstreet
is in charge of the pollution
prevention program which
has a goal of reducing waste,
recycling, finding and using


less toxic chemicals, and
tracking all hazardous ma-

pleted the building of his
home near Bob Sikes Road

current price of gasoline,
that may happen sooner
than later." After he retires

street plans on working at
,some capacity in the Walton
County educational system
and he stated "educating our
citizens should be a top pri-
ority." Overstreet is married
to Loreen Powell Overstreet

at its 36th Annual Veter-

Bicycle-pedestrian


charrette in Freeport


By LEAH STRATMANN
The Okaloosa-Walton
Transportation Planning
Organization is sponsoring
a two-day charrette in Free-
port on Nov. 5 and Nov. 6
at the Freeport Community
Center. The guest speaker
for the event is Dan Burden
of Walkable Communities,
Inc., a nationally-recog-
nized authority on bicycle
and pedestrian facilities
and programs. He has more
than 25 years of experience
in developing, promoting
and evaluating alternative
transportation facilities,
traffic calming practices and
sustainable community de-
sign. He served for 16 years
as Florida Department of
Transportation (FDOT)
State Bicycle and Pedes-
trian Coordinator. Walkable
Communities, Inc. is a non-
profit corporation dedicated
to helping North America
develop walkable communi-
ties.
Walkable Communities,
Inc. defines a charrette as
"a visually engaging, inter-
active. and collaborative
series of public workshops,
focus groups, field condi-
tion inventories and design
sessions. It offers opportu-
nities for friendly, informal
discourse and debate among
community citizens, and the
process achieves workable
visions and solutions for
specific neighborhoods or
a whole community. Town
building charrettes require
a minimum of five days.
Preferably they include sev-
en days of work product de-
velopment. Shorter length
charrettes may be used for
easily addressed issues."
The planners said char-
rettes build ongoing sup-
port for community develop-


ment by a cadre of citizens
and business leaders who
learn ways of supporting
long-term town building. "A
sense of ownership in neigh-
borhood and town devel-
opment evolves from most
charrettes.
"Charrettes can be used
for anything from reaching
consensus on long-term vi-
sions for town development,
to finding workable agree-
ments on single projects.
Charrettes identify short-
term and long-term prob-
lems and issues that are
important to residents and
business leaders. Charrettes
also identify opportunities
and needs. They turn town
planning from a reactive to
a pro-active process. Char-
rettes build both immedi-
ate and long-term solutions.
Participants usually require
an immediate result. Short-
term steps are outlined as
part of the work product. Im-
plementation strategies are
also suggested. Policies and
principles are established
for future decision-making
and town development. For
charrettes to be successful,
everyone taking part must
be active and listen to the
concerns and issues of oth-
ers. The community, as a
whole, comes first. Project
recommendations must be
based on seeking outcomes
that improve conditions for
the greatest number of peo-
ple and provide for the long-
term health of the commu-
nity. The charrette process
combined with other, local,
follow-up actions will lead
to more successful decisions
and a healthier communi-
ty."

cludes introduction the con-
cept of a charrette, and two

a public workshop. Lunch is
provided on the second day
of the charrette.
"Walkable Communities,
Inc. offers technical aid and
process assistance to create
a common community vi-
sion. Such a vision should
help resolve key land pres-
ervation, community devel-
opment, economic health
and transportation sys-
tems management issues.
The outside assistance will
work best if a broad group of
people and interest groups
take part. Each group and
individual must agree to
work together to reach' a
workable, collaborative and
meaningful community vi-
sion."
Essential principles on
how to proceed with this
project include: All visions
are based on 20-year, future
outcomes. Vision comes be-
fore planning. All groups
need to be part of the vision-
ing process. All citizens and
residents will be impacted
by these decisions. Pro-ac-
tive planning needs to take
place before anything is
built. Reactive planning is
futile and leads to muddled,
senseless places and unhap-
py people. Every business

America, the Impossible?
By BRUCE COLLIER
Assistant Editor
If you've made it past the title of this, thanks for your
trust. Recently the south Walton community, as well as a
school in Okaloosa County, have been the scene of some
controversies. South Walton goes first.
The drama director at South Walton High School, a man
I've known for years, whose intelligence and artistic taste
are both high, chose to stage a student-acted play, "Blithe
Spirit," a ,[omedy:f.mta sy written by British playwright/
composer Noel Coward. Written in 1941, the play is fre-
quently staged by professional, amateur, and academic
companies. The play is about a widower who inadvertently
calls up the giost of his late wife, who proceeds to trouble
him and his current wife. The ghost is raised at a seance
conducted by an incompetent "medium," Coward's mock-
ery of the then-fashionable interest in "spiritualism." It's
often staged at Halloween, along with Joseph Kesselring's
"Arsenic and Old Lace," a farce about a pair of little old
ladies who are also serial killers. The latter has been done
around here for years, apparently without strenuous ob-
jection.
Voices were raised in protest, an inquiry was made by
school authorities, who approved the show, then were forced
to put it on hold when the complainant appealed. The sub-
stance of the complaint was that "Blithe Spirit" deals with
ghosts, supernatural events, raising the dead, and other
subjects that some people find objectionable for faith-based
reasons. The complaint also objects to the play's dispar-
agement of marriage, negative portrayal of women, and to
the use of alcohol and profanity. I've read federal indict-
ments with less detail.
Just west of here, a high school planned to produce "To
Kill a Mockingbird," a play based on Harper Lee's novel of
childhood and a sensational, racially-charged rape trial
involving a black defendant. Some of the characters in the
play utter an offensive racial epithet with which we are all
familiar. As with the Coward play, objections were made,
in this case on the basis of the incitatory and unsuitable
language. Apparently, the best way to move past the bad
old days is to re-write history and pretend they never hap-
pened.
In the case of "Mockingbird," it was decided to warn
audiences in advance of the language, and proceed with
the play as written.
As for "Blithe Spirit," it's on hold. Meantime, the lines
are being drawn, and the sanctified smoke has begun to
rise over both camps. On one side are those who want to
protect the young from ungodly things, on the other, those
who stand they believe for free speech and artistic ex-
pression. Names will be called, t-shirts printed up and worn,
there will lots of speechmaking, and the hard-liners from
one side or other will play "last fanatic standing" in hopes
of getting their way. Either way, the First Amendment is
in for yet another beating.
Back to my title. Is America impossible? Can a nation
born of compromise and dedicated to the principal that
everybody gets some, but never all, of what they demand,
keep this up? One could say that people who object to a
school play for religious purposes could just stay away from
the theater and let others enjoy it. However, one could just
as defensibly say that people who object to praying at school
should just ignore it and allow others to pray. There is no
principled difference between forbidding the one or the
other, since both implicate rights guaranteed by the First
Amendment freedom of speech and freedom of exercise of
religion.
In my America, schools can do both "Blithe Spirit" and
have daily prayer for those who want it, and the founda-
tion of the republic would remain strong. If it's that simple,
then why the problem? The problem is that "my right" has,
become "I'm right," and if I'm right, you can't possibly be
right.
At what point in our history did we lose our genius for
compromise, and our individual ability to resist ideas we
don't happen to like, without resorting to legal compul-
sion? Does anyone seriously think that doing plays like
"Blithe Spirit" will inevitably lead children away from their
faith? If those children have parents and churches who
nurture them in that faith, and if the parents are free to
decline to allow their kids to participate in such a produc-
tion their kids, not everyone else's how much more free-
dom can we expect in a free society?
At the same time, the Spanish Inquisition is not wait-
ing just outside the door of schools where kids are allowed
to pray. The First Amendment, in full, reads: "Congress
shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion,
or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the free-
dom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people
peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for
a redress of grievances." The italics are mine.
A United States Supreme Court justice once observed
that the Constitution is not a "self-executing document,"
meaning that we have to be watchful and suspicious of all
attempts to abridge our freedoms, however well-inten-
tioned. There's another maxim, equally true: "Extreme
cases make bad law."
Whatever you can take away from someone, someone
else can take away from you.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


Editor:
I need to offer correction to two glaring errors in your last
week's paper. The first one was the letter from Mr. Roberts
who wrote, "Mossy Head Water Works having an out of sight
deposit of $2,000." FACT: The refundable deposit for all of our
customers, has for the past number of years has been; $30 for
property owners, and $70 for renters. These deposits are a far
cry for the quoted deposit of $150 for CHELCO. Instead of
calling for assistance from "two county leaders," Mr. Roberts
would have been well advised to have contacted Mossy Head
Water Works first, for the correct figures regarding deposits.
The second error was in the article written by your reporter,
Patrick Casey, where he wrote, "a construction change order
was necessary for the Mossy Head School due to a result of
low water pressure coming from the Mossy Head Water Works."
FACT: On at least three occasions, my maintenance superin-
tendent, along with a supervisor from Lord and Sons, met with
county school construction personnel and informed them that
their adding of a four-inch water meter in an eight-inch line
would cause significant loss of water volume. The answer given
by school personnel was, "putting a four-inch meter would in-
crease the pressure." This, of course was incorrect and as a
result, the fire flow to fire hydrants was significantly reduced.
When requested by construction personnel and the school, we
authorized the removal of the four-inch meter and a piece of
eight-inch pipe was installed temporarily, for test purposes.
When this was done, the pressure wa. me gsured at 56 PSI at
the hydrants. The pressure in our eight-inch main along Hwy.
90 was measured at over 60 PSI and remains close to that
figure now. I don't know where Mr. Casey got this quote, but I
can assure him and the school board that the reason for the
change order was not due to "low water pressure from Mossy
Head Water Works."
I would like to add one last bit of information. MHWW has
never billed Walton County for water taps at any of their loca-
tions. This includes the new school, new EMS station, fire sta-
tion, county commission office, and the Mossy Head Park. In
fact, we provided water free of charge to the EMS ambulance
temporary location for many months While it was located
within the confines of our facility. Over the years, we have
developed a great working relationship with the county and
will continue to do so, along with providing our customer with
the best potable water available.

An old-fashioned prize-winning cake at the county fair


By ROBIN NEWTON
Walton County is the
kind of place where a young
lady can win a blue-ribbon
at the county fair for her
best cake or'pie. Sarah De-
Witt had no idea why her
cake had a purple ribbon on
it' when she and her family
went to the Walton County
Fair on opening night. The
11-year-old homeschooler
was excited when she and
her family decided to go and
watch the baked goods auc-
tion on Monday, Oct. 15.
Barbara Chilcutt, divi-
sion chairman for the Bak-
ing Contest, explained
to Sarah that the Italian
cream cake she had entered
had not only won 'a Blue
Ribbon for the B-est Entry in
the youth DiN\is in, butL th-t
purple ribbon was awarded
because the judges had de-
clared Sarah's cake to be the
"Best in Show."
Sarah's cake, made from
a recipe handed down from
her great-grandparents, is a
cherished family tradition.
The Italian cream cake is
made for special occasions.
The cream cake recipe has
changed a bit over the years
since her great grandfather
used to prepare it in the
Pierre Pont Hotel, where he
was a chef many years ago.
He had come to the United
States in the early 1900s to
make some money and re-
turn to Italy, but he fell in
love with the country and
decided to stay. Before the
family moved from Texas,
Sarah's mother, maternal

grandmother and maternal
great-grandmother used to
get together to bake for all
family gatherings. Sarah re-
called enjoyable afternoons
cooking and baking with the
women of her family.
When Sarah decided to
enter the baking contest,
she called her grandmother
and both of them knew the
Italian cream cake was the
best thing to enter.
The auctioneer really
surprised the DeWitt fam-
ily when bidding began at
$50. Sarah could not believe
it as the bids kept increas-
ing. The winning bid, $150,
was made by the grandchild
of Mrs. James of the James
Gang, the owners of the fair
attraction company. Each
year,- James Gang mem-
bers participate in both the
baked goods and hog auc-
tions in support of the fair.
Sarah called her grand-


mother and great-grand-
mother (now 85 years old)
and told them both about
the contest and the auction.
The grandmothers, in turn,
called everyone and spread
the news about the award-


winning cake Sarah had en-
tered in the County Fair.
As for Sarah, she says
she's waiting for her mom to
make an Italian cream cake
for her 12th birthday. The
competition will be tough.

The renovation of the
61d school building contin-
i4es but has already made
9 difference in daily hospi-
1al life. The offices of Lillie
Willet, director of nursing,
and Faye Dean, utilization
review, have been moved to
the newly-renovated build-
iug.
- In addition, the biggest
change has been the relo-
cation of the CT Scanner.
When the building was first
b'ing renovated, the plan
was to move the scanner
from the mobile unit. How-
ever, a different (bigger and
better) scanner was pro-
cired for the hospital. The
new GE/CTI (General Elec-
tric/Computerized Tomog-
raphy Imaging) unit is in
place and operational in the
rnwly renovated building.
SThe new unit required ex-
tta training for the staff and
they received specialized
training at Sun Coast Im-
aging in Panama City. The
scanner is used nearly ev-
eryday and 60 CT scans had
b en done in the first three
weeks of October alone.
i Blair Henson, administra-
tbr, explains, "renovations
began in early 2005 and the
building was operational in
April 2007." The changes
tlhus far use about 1,500 of
the 4,500 square foot build-
iag. Future plans for the
briilding include moving the
laundry facilities and the
stress test lab and creating
ah additional sleep room/
living area for the weekend
on-call physicians.
; Henson adds, "This hos-
pital is 43 years old and it
is; going to continue to grow
aid serve the community for
at least another 43 years.
Our future looks bright."


"This is for a land-use
change," Hatcher reiterat-
ed. "We haven't been going
in and out of there," he said
of the property under con-
sideration.
"No development is being
proposed at this time," stat-
ed Dean Burgis, engineer
for the applicant.
District 5 Commissioner
Cindy Meadows observed


that, nevertheless, the com-
missioners were already be-
ing faced with an issue of
commercial activity being
expanded into residential
areas. She moved to deny
the request "tonight."
After a second by Co-
mander, the motion carried
3-2, with Commissioner
Brannon also voting for de-
nial of the land-use change,
and Commissioner Jones
and County Commission
Chair Pridgen dissenting.

they dust, pollen or a reflec-

THE STEPS leading up to the burned down church are now only inhabited by three

Natural Bridge... Halloween fable or fact?


By ALICIA LEONARD
Many a child growing
up in Florala or Defuniak
Springs might have taken
a dip in the creek at Natu-
ral Bridge. They also might
have been told by their par-
ents or grandparents to stay
away from the north vortex
side and the graveyard down
the road because, it is said,
strange things might befall
those who get too close to ei-
ther.
One of the oldest tales'
about the area has to do
with the suction vortex
on the north side of the
springs. Children through
the ages have heard of an
inn that once occupied the
top of the hill during the
horse-and-buggy era. It
was said that the innkeeper
would kill travelers for their
belongings and dispose of
any evidence of the victims
by running their bodies and
buggies into the' deep suc-
tion of the vortex where they
would be sucked under the
bridge, disappearing 'With-
out a trace.
According to legend, one
winter night the innkeeper
got more then he bargained
for and a mysterious fire be-
gan in the inn. The man's
clothes caught on fire while
trying to extinguish the
flames. He ran out the door
and jumped into the north
vortex, only to be sucked
into the undertow to meet
the same fate as his victims.
Some north Walton old-tim-
ers say that on a still winter
night with a full moon, one
can still hear the innkeep-
er's screams as he plunged
into the water to put out the
flames reenacting his aw-
ful fate for eternity.
Other tales about the area
involves an old man with a
flashlight looking to break
up young couples who are
parking in the area. He is
said to shine a light into the
car and then just disappear.
And lastly, there is the tale
of the ghostly young woman
with flowing blond hair that
is sometimes seen on the
back roads of the area. She
is supposedly searching for
her true love who was killed
attempting to. swim through
the vortex to the other, side
of the springs, and whose


body was never found. She
reportedly dove in after
him and was lost forever, as
well.
"Who you gonna call"
to help with the ghostly
investigation? The Her-
ald contacted GHG Ghost.
Hunters (ghgghosthunters.
corn), paranormal research-
ers based in northwest
Florida. Researcher and
professional debunker Eric
Buckelew answered the
call.
Buckelew is from Gulf
Breeze and has been a re-
searcher for over 20 years.
He holds a bachelor's degree
in environmental science
and an MS degree in coast-
al biology/ecology and cur-
rently works for the federal
government. He describes
himself as a hard skeptic
of anything paranormal.
Eric has been a consultant
to mahy television shows,
including A Current Affair,
Unsolved Mysteries, USA
Today TV, CSICOP, Inside
Edition, Time Life Books
and The Discovery Channel.
Eric was hired by Inside
Edition to debunk the Gulf
Breeze UFO sightings many
years ago, which he did suc-
cessfully.
Eric also had a warning
for the public, "If 'someone
asks you to pay to have your
house or an area investigat-
ed, beware. The real hunt-
ers don't charge, they do it
for the love of it." Anyone
who thinks something un-
usual is happening in their
home or neighborhood can
contact GHG Ghost Hunters
and not be frightened out of
their hard-earned cash.
The ghosthunter inves-
tigation team arrived with
Buckelew at the springs
around 4:30 p.m. Buckelew
inspected the vortex first
and said, "It does have quiet
a strong current to it and
the other side is not as deep
as last time I was here."
The team discussed possible
reasons why there had been
fencing on the side that was
safe to swim in and none
was needed for the vortex
side. The team agreed that
the legend had been passed
down so often to local chil-
dren that fear of being
sucked under the bridge left


no need for fencing.
Buckelew is also a cave
explorer and diver. He ex-
pressed interest in possibly
one day exploring this site
from underwater. His last
adventure in diving un-
der a limestone formation
like Natural Bridge almost
ended in tragedy. "The roof
started to cave in and I had
to get out fast," he said.
The road leading to the
hill above the vortex was
gated and the home ap-
peared to be empty. No-
trespassing signs hung on
the gate. Buckelew observed
the home from the road and
surmised, "looks likq some
one has built a hunting
camp there now." The team
obeyed the signs and did not
attempt to get any closer.
Then they traveled to the
church a few miles down the
road and inspected what
was left of the church's foun-

Hot dog! H&M turns 60


By CHRIS MANSON
H&M Hot Dog, the popu-
lar 9th Street lunch spot,
will celebrate its 60th an-
niversary this Saturday be-
ginning at 11 a.m. Current
owner Dan Pinson said the
festivities will include a
hot dog eating contest and
a "celebrity appearance" by
Merle Carter, who operated
H&M for 30 years.
Margaret Broxson, who
founded H&M with husband
Harley in 1947, is expected
to participate in the cake-
cutting ceremony.
Pinson assumed owner-
ship of H&M Hot Dog last


May. He and his family dab-
bled in the restaurant busi-
ness over the years..Pinson's
first job, at age 14, was at a
hot dog stand in his home-
town of Chicago.
When he moved here in
2001, Pinson worked in the
liquor industry but quickly
fell in love with H&M. "I
thought, 'Man, this is the
coolest place!' I used to have
my eye on it all the time," he
said.
During a church fish fry,
he met the Bodiford family,
who purchased the eatery
in 2002. Dan Bodiford was
planning to sell H&M, but


was looking for just the right
person to take the reins. Im-
pressed by the way Pinson's
family pitched in at the fish
fry, Bodiford agreed to sell
to Pinson.
In the last year and a half,
Pinson has added Chicago
specialty sandwiches to the
menu. "I've kept things the
same, but with a little more
spice," he said.
He credits the previous
owner with H&M's surviv-
al. "Dan saved the place,"
said Pinson. "This town has
nothing but praise for him.
He came in and updated it,
added a side window. I just


happened to be in the right
place at the right time."
Pinson's two sons trade
off dishwas-hing and mop-
ping duties each night, and
his daughter works here e\-
ery Sat urday.

Dear Auntie Em,

I have a problem that may
seem strange to many.
Recently, I have been
successful in my job and
personal life. I don't go
around bragging to my
friends, but when they ask
me how things are going, I
am honest. Some of the
people I am close to seem to
be irritated by what I tell
them or the happiness I
must be expressing in my
answers. They may make
off-the-cuff remarks to me
that hurt my feelings and I
just sense that I have upset
them in some way.
This upsets me because I
have worked hard to
achieve anything in my life
and I feel like I have to
decide between my own
happiness or not having
friends. What should I do?

Confused by success
in Crestview
(Name and address
withheld by
request)


Dear Confused,

There is an old saying that
one does not know who their
real friends are until the
chips are down. But Auntie
Em has found out that
success can help one gauge
the quality of a friendship, as
well.

Something to think about
is that maybe your friend's
circumstances might not be
as good as your is right now.
Maybe they have been
affected by family problems,
health matters or downsizing
in the workforce. Maybe they
didn't follow their dreams or
take a chance and you did.
Most of us make our own
beds in this life and if
someone else's success
doesn't rub off on us or help
us financially or personally in
some way, it is no one's
responsibility but our own.
You can temper your
enthusiasm to those around
you, but you should never
have to choose between doing
a good job and having caring,
supportive people in your life.


People have long been
dealing with the
equilibrium issue in
friendship. They believe if
someone is doing better
than them right now, then
it is not fair. Those people
believe in a passive-
aggressive approach to life,
rather than a proactive
approach to achieving their
happiness. People like this
may appear negative.

It would be my heartfelt
advice to distance yourself
from these people, if it
makes you question your
hard work. Real friends will
be there for you in good
times and bad. They will
not compare your lives, but
rather embrace the
differences that make you
special. Keep up the good
work, take pride in your
accomplishments and don't
compromise yourself for
anyone.
Remember, success is
living your life on your own
terms.

Auntie Em

Affirmation and


impartation

BY CHARLES SATTERWHITE, D. MIN


There is nothing like hav-
ing children, or grandchil-
dren! While Ramona and I
were serving as missionaries
in Espana, our oldest daugh-
ter Charity was born. While
in the delivery room God's
presence was absolutely in-
credible as I lifted Charity's
little squirming, body up to
the Lord. Dr. Echeberre was
overwhelmed at what he felt
in that delivery room. In fact,
he said that he had never felt
God so powerfully in his en-
tire life.
That is what you call affir-


mation-God's presence
dwelling among us, an
Emmanuel experience! Affir-
mation happens in church,
but is not limited to church.
Often, God visits us in still-
ness, prayer, or in the read-
ing of scripture. In those still,'
quiet moments our life is for-
ever changed. Like Jesus in
the garden those moments
propel us forward into a new
dimension with God.
My grandson Kaeden (8
months) receives word of af-
firmation from his Papaw. I
tell him, "Papaw loves you,


Mamaw loves you, but Jesus,
loves you more, and I want
you to know that you are go-
ing to be filled with wisdom,
knowledge and understand-
ing from the Lord. You, will
have the gift of discernment,
and you will not judge after
your own ways, but after the
ways of the Lord. You will
have a tender heart and will
come to the Lord at an early
age-God has a plan for you
and has His hand strong
upon you." That my friend is
affirmation. Our children
need to hear those words,


THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 1, 2007

-Awsn.Ss


and not just words of outward
affirmation.
Impartation is when you,
through discernment recog-
nize that someone needs our
help. In church, I as pastor
will give hugs of affirmation.
At first, the person is natu-
rally resistant, but if you hold
them tight, they begin feeling
the Spirit of the Lord flow
from you to them, and visa
versa. We get in too big of a
hurry. But life is too short not
to allow God's affirmation and
impartation in our life-we
need both!

God. Read the whole Psalm
and you will see it. The other
is the habit of thankfulness.
Let's dwell on the second of
these.
First, thankfulness is far
more a cultivated habit than
a natural element. The proper
thing for us to do is to mix the
events of every day, even its
crosses and trials, with a pro-
found sense and recognition
of the loving kindness of God.
Again, thankfulness makes
our blessings doubly blest.


There are two ways to get
rich. One is to increase the
number of our dollars. The
other is to increase the
value of the few dollars we
have. Thankfulness raises
the blessings we already-
have to higher degrees of
worth, and thereby en-
riches us.
Further, the habit of
thankfulness is a brave and
cheerful habit. It has no
room for the weak bitter-
ness which complains that
life is not worth living. It
does not dwell on personal
disappointments, but en-
ters into the larger life of
God's kingdom.


OBITS


Mitchem
Brenda J. Mitchem, 52, of
Ponce de Leon, FL. passed
away Oct. 30,2007 peacefully
at her residence. She was
born Nov. 6, 1954 in DeFu-
niak Springs, FL. to Billy J.
and Wilfred Ward Locke.
Brenda was a resident of
Ponce de Leon; she was Holi-
ness by faith and a member
of the Macedonia Holiness
Church. She worked as a


Cosmotologist for over 30
years. Brenda sang with
the Trinity Gospel Singers,
which formed into, The An-
chor Holds Gospel Group.
She was known as a loving
person always willing to
lend a helping hand.
Brenda was preceded in
death by her grandparents,
Ida and Henry E. Ward and
Charlie and Annie Lee
Locke.
Brenda is survived by her
father and mother, Billy J.
and Wilfred Locke, her lov-
ing husband, Arthur "Spur"
Mitchem of 38 years; one
son, Jerry Wayne Mitchem
and wife, Sabrina; one
daughter, Tina Webster and
husband, Michael, all of
Ponce de Leon; two broth-
ers, Billy Locke and wife,
Vicki, of Reynolds Hill, FL.
and Bobby J. Locke and
wife, Jacquiline, of Virginia;
one sister, Kisha Murphy
and husband, Todd, of
Pensacola, FL. She is also
survived by eight grand-
children, Kennie Mitchem,


Then, too, thankfulness is
a restful habit. A thankful
spirit is a restful spirit. It
does not fume and fret. It re-
poses. It rests. Every promise
of God is like a seat al6ng a'
mountain path, with the
words over it, "Rest and be
thankful." If we are thankful,
we are already at rest.
Furthermore, thankfulness
cures covetousness. An old
man used.to say that he liked
to look into the windows of
stores at Christmas time. He
was thankful to see so many
things that he could do with-
out! A person has gone a long
way toward thankfulness
when he can do that.

FHS 2007 Miss Bluewave


RINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 1, 2007


The glamour meter was
maxed out on Saturday, Oct.
20 at Freeport High School,
site of the 2007 Miss Blue-
wave Pageant. Ten young
ladies took to the New York
themed stage, all in hopes of
winning the coveted crown.
After the girls exited a
pink Cadillac, escorted by
senior Dustin Hayhurst, the
evening opened with a brief
introduction by the 2006
Miss Bluewave, Madison
Lewis and Chelsea Smith,
co-editor of the 2008 Year-
book staff, which sponsored


the pageant. The casual
wear competition began im-
mediately following the in-
troduction. A range of col-
ors, from black and white
to purple, crossed the stage.
All looked ready for a stroll
down Broadway. The crowd
cheered and applauded their
favorites, while the judges
looked on with a critical
eye.
Following intermission,
the girls came out-in their
evening wear to partici-
-pate in the communications
phase. One at a time, the


contestants shared with the
crowd why each thought
she deserved to be the 2007
Miss Bluewave. Their rea-
sons ranged from their per-
sonality to a desire to uphold
the school's honor.
The girls had only a mo-
ment to spare before they
jumped into the final seg-
ment, the evening wear
competition. While they
walked, Madison and Chel-
sea read off each contestants
achievements and opinions
on Freeport High School.
The audience mem-


bers once again cheered on
their favorites, while "New
York, New York" played in
the background. .
Finally, the climax of the
night came. Madison Lewis
took her final walk as Miss
Bluewave and the awards
began. Winning the View-
er's Choice Award with 146
votes was Lora King. Miss
Congeniality went to Alexis
Santos. The Second Runner-
up was Lillie Graber, First
Runner-up was Ashley Guy
and the 2007 Miss Blue-
wave, Alexis Santos.

Movie Review

"Dan in Real Life" is a true family comedy


By BRUCE COLLIER
If you've ever wondered
what kind of home life peo-
ple like the late "DearAbby"
Van Buren or the still-via-
ble "Dr. Phil" McGraw en-
joy, Peter Hedges' film "Dan
in Real Life" might interest
you. The movie stars Steve
Carrell as Dan Burns, a pop-
ular advice columnist work-
ing out of his home in New
Jersey. Dan's column, called
"Dan in Real Life," is poised
on the edge of national syn-
dication. Dan is a widower
with three daughters, one
a child, one a pre-teen, and
one a teen. Though his work-
ing life is pretty smooth, his
personal and parental world
("real life") needs some at-
tention.
A yearly trip to his par-
ents' home in New Eng-
land brings Dan, his girls,
siblings and sibs-in-law to-
gether. It also throws Dan
into contact with a woman,
Marie, played by Juliette
Binoche. Dan and Marie
meet-cute in a bookstore,
have coffee and conversa-
tion, and Dan asks to see her
again. She hesitates, telling
him it's "complicated." It is
indeed. Dan quickly learns
that Marie is involved with
his brother, Mitch (played
by Dane Cook). Dan knows,
Marie knows, Mitch doesn't
know. Marie is a guest at
the house. And so we have
our movie.
Most of the film takes
place in and around the New


England home. The Burns
family is the American fam-
ily we all wish we had. They
prepare and eat their meals
together and play parlor
games like charades and
boys-versus-girls crossword
puzzle competitions. They
even entertain each other
with "talent shows." No TV,
no video games, just a little
random text-messaging and
cell-phoning. As a result,
perhaps, of this interaction,
certain members of the fam-
ily begin to suspect that Dan
might have a thing for Ma-
rie. Except for Mitch, who
loves and admires his broth-
er so much that he woos Ma-
rie using phrases from one
of Dan's advice books.
Complicating this is
Dan's habit of distancing
himself from love, from
his daughters, from life a
habit he's perfected since
the death of his wife. He's so
accustomed to prescribing.
for others that he can't see
that his own garden needs
tending. A family weekend,


a beautiful Frenchwoman,
and some straight talk from
Mom and Dad are just what
Dan would probably have
suggested to one of his read-
ers.

There's a lot to like in
"Dan in Real Life." Carrell
and Binoche play very well
off each other. Carrell has
the slightly neurotic nice-
guy character down just
right. There were scenes
where I felt like he was re-
ally making Binoche laugh.
It's been a while since I've
seen a family portrayed so
positively. The parents (John
Mahoney and Dianne Wiest)
are mature and sensible, the
kids are spirited but not ob-
noxious, and Dan's brothers
and sisters are played with
the right balance of love and
facetiousness one sees in
real sibling relationships.
We know where the story
is going, the groundwork is
laid early for a happy reso-
lution, and delivers oR the
promise.


ON OCT. 13, 2007 THE FREEPORT HIGH SCHOOL Sunshine band participated in
the Southern Showcase Marching Band Invitational. They placed second out of 14 other
bands from Florida, Georgia, and Alabama. They received superior ratings in band, drum

Walton Schools recognized for Exceptional Education Program


The Walton County School
District has been recognized
by the Florida Department
of Education as one of five
counties statewide where
inclusive practices for stu-
dents with disabilities have
resulted in significant im-
provement in achievement
for this population.
The five counties dem-
onstrating exemplary per-
formance included Walton,
Monroe, Okaloosa, Bre-
vard, and Broward.
Based on data analysis
that looked at identification
rates, placement rates, and
FCAT performance from the
2005-06 school year, the dis-
trict stood out as exemplar,"
said Karen Denbroeder, sec-
tion administrator for the
FDOE Bureau of exception-
al Education and Student
Services in a letter to Wal-


ton County School District
Superintendent Carlene
Anderson.

Anderson and Rosemary
Ragle, coordinator of Excep-
tional Student Student Ed-
ucation and psychological
Services for Walton County,
presented Walton's success-
ful strategies and policies
on exceptional student edu-
cation at the Annual State
Administrators Manage-
ment Meeting on Sept. 19,
in Tampa.
"Our inclusion of stu-
dents with disabilities in
general education settings
has resulted in significant
improvement in achieve-
ment for students with dis-
abilities," said Anderson.
Walton demonstrated 83
percent proficiency for stu-
dents with disabilities in


the regular classroom with
the state average being 58
percent.
Walton County School
District out-performed the


state average in many areas
for students with disabilities
including 51 percent gradu-
ation rate with the state av-
erage being 37 percent.


Forty-one percent, of Wal-
ton County students with
disabilities graduated with
a standard diploma while
the state average ws 38 per-
cent.
It is also important to
note that 60 percent of
these students continue on
to post-secondary education
or are employed while the
state average is 57 percent.-
"Our commitment and-
efforts to provide every pos-
sible opportunity for all stu-


dents is proving succ.'stkul,"
said Anderson.
The district Ms .also
awarded through Vocation-
al Rehabilitation. a grant
for preparing students with
disabilities for work expierip
ences and preparation fto
employment. The grant ini,
tiative enabled Walton to
focus on career preparation
and was strongly supported

Fulcher to attend Global Youth Forum


A.J. Fulcher, an 8th-grade
student at Walton Middle
School, will travel to Chi-
cago next month as one of
only 250 young people world
wide who have been accept-
ed to attend the 2007 Global
Youth Forum. Fulcher re-
ceived his invitation after
his successful participation
in another People to People
International program that


took him to Washington
D.C. last spring.
The Global Youth Forum
gives participants the op-
portunity to come together
and explore ways that. stu-
dents can impact the cause
of world peace. Activities
will include group study and
discussion sessions concern-
ing world violence, hands-on
service projects in the Chi-


cago area, and numerous
guest speakers and lectur-
ers.

Among the presenters at
the Forum will be Jimmie
Briggs, author of the book
"Innocents Lost," which de-
scribes the lives of child sol-
diers throughout the world's
conflict zones. The keynote
speaker of the week's pro-


gram will be Arun Gandhi,
grandson of .Indian leader
and peace activist, Mahat-
ma Gandhi. The topic of
.his speech will be "Lessons
Learned from my Grand-
father." In addition to the
knowledge, insights, and
new friends gained through
his participation, Fulcher
will also earn community
service credits.


4-H shooting sports program


The Walton County 4-H
Council is currently seeking
adult volunteers interested
in establishing a 4-H shoot-
ing sports program in the
Walton County area. There
is a huge interest among
youth throughout the county
to participate in a shooting
sports program but a lack of
adult volunteers has been
a problem in getting the
program running. Suzanne
Wilson, Walton County 4-H
agent, believes that estab-
lishing a successful shoot-
ing sports program in the
area would be welcomed
by youth and parents of all
ages. "4-H offers a wonder-
ful opportunity for youth to
get involved in this popular
sport. We offer strategies for


positive youth development,
in-depth safety procedures,
and numerous competitive
opportunities for youth in-
terested in shooting sports.
In addition, we offer the nec-
essary training for adults to
be certified in archery, shot-
gun, or air rifle in order to
establish a local club."
The process of establish-
ing a 4-H Club is relatively
simple and Wilson says she
is eager to assist with the
process of setting up a shoot-
ing sports club. The first
step in getting the program
established is securing car-
ing, responsible individuals
willing to devote a few hours
each month to local youth.
Interested parties will need
to complete a volunteer


screening and background
check, all of which can easily
be completed at the Walton
County Extension Office.
Once completed, the volun-
teer will be ready to attend
the certification training.
.The next local training
for volunteer certification
in the shooting sports field
is scheduled for Nov. 9-11.
The training will be located
at Camp Timpoochee 4-H
Center for this .three-day
event. Participants will
have the opportunity to stay
on -the facility grounds as a
weekend retreat. The cost
for this training is $50 per
person, however, the Wal-
ton County 4-H Council is
so ready to have adult vol-
unteers certified to start a


shooting sports program in
the county that they are of-
fering to reimburse the total
cost of training when the
certified volunteer begins
the 4-H club. The deadline.
to register for this training
program is Nov. 1.
Those interested in sign-
ing up for this volunteering
opportunity in 4-H, should
contact Suzanne Wilson
at the UF/IFAS Walton
County Extension Office, at
892-8172 or by email at su-

Finesse fishing in shallow water


By SKEET REESE
One of the many great
things about fishing is that
presents endless possibili-
ties. Pretty much everyone
takes to the water with a
single goal in mind: to catch
fish. Some people use arti-
ficial lures, other use bait;
but within these two types
of fishing lie a multitude of
options for getting more fish
in the boat.
This time of year, a lot
of the bass are in shallow
water for a couple of differ-
ent reasons. First, they are
chasing shad, which are
spawning in the backs of
coves. Second, as the nights
get cooler, the surface tem-
perature of the water is also
cooling down. So, when the
sun does rise, the first wa-
ter to be warmed the most is
the shallow water. There's a
lot of ways to fish the these
shallow bass this time of
year, but one that is some-
times overlooked is a finesse
approach.
When most bass anglers
think of shallow-water bass
fishing, most of them think
of shallow-running crank-
baits, big Texas-rigged plas-
tic worms or flipping a jig.
All are very effective, but
these techniques have used
for so long, why not switch
it up?
Two of my favorite fi-
nesse techniques for catch-
ing shallow fish are the drop
shot and the wacky rigged
soft bait. Most people think
of the drop shot as a deep-
water technique, but by ad-
justing the distance in be-
tween your hook and your
weight you can fish this bait
extremely shallow.
For drop shot, I use a
7-foot medium-action spin-
ning rod and an Abu Garcia
spinning reel spooled with
8-pound Trilene 100-per-


cent fluorocarbon line. Fluo-
rocarbon line is important
in this technique because it
is less visible underwater.
I like a small octopus hook
or wide-gap hook tied to the
line with a Palomar knot.
Leave about 8-10 inches of
line below your hook and at-
tach a quarter-ounce drop
shot weight.
A Green Pumpkin Berk-
ley Gulp! Sinking Minnow
and a Berkley PowerBait
Hand Pour Finesse Worm
are two great drop shot
baits. Cast the baits near
areas likely to hold bass in
ambush (around structure,
primary depth changes) and
shake the rod tip. By shak-
ing the rod tip, you keep the
bait in the strike zone but
are moving it just enough
to make it look alive. If you
don't get bit, drag the weight
a few feet and start over.
Another effective method
for shallow bass in clear wa-
ter is a wacky rigged soft
bait like a Berkley Power-
Bait Fat Dover Crawler. The
wacky system allows you to
keep the bait in the strike
zone longer and it creates a
'lot more action with the bait.
If you rig a bait straight and
you twitch it once, it is go-
ing to easily move two-three
feet away from any fish
within the strike zone. With
the wacky system, it cre-
ates a lot more resistance


in the water. It pushes the
water more and makes the
worm kick, giving you a lot
more movement out of it.
That extra movement out of
a little worm creates a lot of
strikes.
For me, my wacky rig-
ging equipment consists of
a seven-foot spinning rod
with eight- or 10-pound
Trilene 100-percent fluoro-
carbon line. As far as hooks
go, I use a wacky rig hook: a
short-shank, wide-gap hook
with round bends. Just stick
'the hook point through the
eggs sack (or thickest por-
tion) of the bait and weight
the bait with tungsten nail
weights, but you could even
use an actual finish nail if
you have trouble finding
nail weights.
This time of year is a
great time to go after bass.
There is a lot less boat traf-
fic and the bass are largely
congregating wherever
there is an easy meal. Try
a little finesse the next time
you go chasing fish into the
backs of coves and see how
slowing down and downsiz-
ing your tackle can result
in more strikes and bigger
fish.

21-0 deficit to claim a 30-28
win over Escambia. Catholic
(4-5) was mauled by Escam-
bia's Trent Richardson for
299 rushing yards and four
touchdowns, but got the win
at home.


Marianna's Bradley
Battles ran for three touch-
downs and threw for an-
other on a halfback pass as
the Bulldogs raced to a 34-0
lead and held on for a 34-13
win at Northview. Marian-
na(5-3) will face Walton on
Friday with a playoff berth
on the line. Northview (4-4)
travels to South Walton (2-6)
for the final district game of
the year.


Vernon quarterback Josh
Boyett threw four touch-
down passes as the Yellow-
jackets claimed the District
1, Class 2B title with a
41-27 win at Baker. Markel
Andrews hauled in a pair of
touchdown receptions as he
had eight receptions for 171
yards. Boyett threw for 325
yards on the night. Baker
and Northview are 4 4 on
the year.


Dale Barlow returned the
opening kickoff 97 yards as
Jay plastered Wewahitchka
40-6. Barlow caught a pair
of touchdown passes as Jay
built a 40-6 halftime lead
and coasted to a win. Jay
(6-1) is tied atop the stand-
ings with Port St. Joe and
the two squads are both
likely to make the playoffs
as the representatives in
District 1 of Class A.


Port St. Joe hands



Freeport 55-10 setback


Ridge Read of Liberty
County threw a 55-yard
touchdown pass to Leonard
DuBuisson with 6:45 left in
the game as the Bulldogs
edged Sneads 21-14. Sneads
mounted a potential game-
tying scoring drive in the
final minutes, but a fumble


put an end to the Pirates
comeback effort.

In one of the uglier games
of the week, future Walton
opponent Franklin County
was crushed by West Gad-
sden 68-6. Franklin County
is 0-8 so far this season.

Seminoles break streak


By CHUCK HINSON
It has only happened
twice since the series be-
tween No. 20-ranked Geor-
gia and number nine-ranked
Florida, that the boys from
Athens, GA., have had rea-
son to celebrate. This past
Saturday, the Georgia Bull-
dogs did more than just ruin
the Gators' weekend, they


also ended their chances to
go to the SEC play-off and
a chance to repeat their ap-
pearance in the big game in
January with their 42-30
victory.
Head coach Mark Richt
challenged the Bulldog
team to step up to the plate
and change the course of
the Bulldogs' "record. His


team was poised and ready
to change the SEC history
books and give the Geor-
gia team its third victory
against the Gators since
the series between the two
teams began in 1990.
The excitement for Geor-
gia (6-2, 4-2) started off
with a touchdown and two
unsportsmanship penalties


for excessive celebration af-
ter more than 70 Bulldogs
rushed the field following
Knowshon Moreno's touch-
down. The momentum con-
tinued for Georgia and it
never faded.
Moreno got MVP of the
game by totaling a career-
high of 188 yards and three
touchdowns. Richt had been


1-5 against Florida in the
17 year series that has been
called the world's largest
cocktail party.
Florida (5-3, 3-3) had sev-
eral bad plays and quarter-
back Tim Tebow could not
get off a pass to a waiting
receiver because of being
sacked six times and adding
salt to the wound of Tebow's


PAGE 11-1




badly bruised shoulder. He
completed 14 of 22 passed
and passed for 236 yards.
The loss to Georgia
pushed the Gators int6
fourth place out of a line-up
of six SEC teams. Georgia
now leads the SEC East di-
vision, followed by Tennes-
see, South Carolina, Florida,
Kentucky and Vanderbilt.

USF Bulls slip again


By CHUCK HINSON
Connecticut took control
early and the game and nev-
er let up against the Bulls
as they rolled to a 22-15 vic-
tory. It was all about Andre
Dixon and the UConn of-
fense as they racked up a


13-0 lead in the first half.
Dixon ran for a career-
high 189 yards and Con-
necticut used a late goal-
line stand to upset the No.
11-ranked Bulls. It was the
first win over a ranked op-
ponent, and keeps UConn


(7-1, 3-0 in the Big East) in
full possession of first place
in the conference. It also as-
sures them the first Top-25
ranking in the Huskies foot-
ball program's history.
South Florida (6-2, 1-2)


which had peaked as high
as number two in the ESPN
polls two weeks ago, has
lost two straight games. The
Bulls came back in the sec-
ond half and cut the lead to
19-15 in the fourth quarter,
before a 20-yard field goal


by Tony Ciaravino with
5:19 left to on the clock -
gave UConn its final margin
of victory.-
The Bull's quarterback,
Matt Grothe did begin to get
the Bulls turned around and
heading for a more positive


upswing in the second half,
but the Huskies had other
plans for the game's out-
come. Grothe finished the'
game with, 146 yards rush;
ing on 25 carries and threw
for 189 yards, but racked up
two interceptions.


WALTON'S SARAH GREEN tips the ball with her fin-
gers, but falls shy of scoring the point as the Lady Braves fell
in the first round of District 1-3A play to Northview. Final
scores, 14-25, 25-22, 25-18, 15-25 and 15-13.
,


FREEPORT'S LINDSEY JONES returns a quick pop
back across the net during thier game against Pensacola,
Christian. The top-seeded Lady Bulldogs season ended
against Pensacola Christian with losses of .25-22, 22-25,
15-25, 25-23 and 15-11.

The Walton boys team
will -be looking to qualify
for the state tournament for
the second 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 re-
gion get to go and there are
teams like Pensacola Catho-
lic, Wakulla, and Maclay
that you have to outplay to
get there," said Stan Bosen-
berg, Walton's golf coach, af-
ter the match.
"Timmons played well
today 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.


A*


These kids have worked
hard and have the trip to
state last year under their
belt. We'll tee it up on Tiuen -
day and see w hat happens."

Governor keeps it brief


at Walton Chamber's


annual meeting


By BRUCE COLLIER
Governor Charlie Crist
kept his remarks short at
the 81st annual meeting of
the Walton County Chamber
of Commerce, held Oct. 24 at
the Sandestin Beach Hilton.
Crist had agreed to speak on
the evening's theme, "Lead-
ership Through Open Minds
and Open Hearts."
The governor attended
a pre-meeting V.I.P. recep-
tion as chamber members
mingled over cocktails and
listened to a solo violinist
outside the banquet area.
Security was enhanced,
with state and county law
enforcement officers present
in uniform and plainclothes
outside and inside the hotel.


Chamber President Dawn
Moliterno worked the crowd,
greeting various county offi-
cials and functionaries and
talking to the media gath-
ered outside the V.I.P. area.
Crist's communications
representative promised
the press that the governor
would stop and and take a
few questions on his way
from the reception to the
banquet area. Crist emerged
with State Representative
Ray Sansom, Speaker-desig-
nate of the House. Both took
turns answering a question
on the pending property tax
amendment.
Each expressed confi-
dence that an accord would
be reached. "The people

Toscana development

Toscana, a six-unit beach-
front development proposed
for a 1.27-acre lot south of
the CR-30A/Eastern Lake

denied by the Walton Coun-

veloper and eight-year coun-
ty resident Jon LaPlante
told the commissioners that
he had originally purchased
the property to build eight
units, to be designed as a
"private enclave.".
LaPlante said that, fol-
lowing up on input from
neighbors and the Walton
County Planning Commis-
sion, the number of units
had been reduced to six and
the pool that was originally
:proposed was eliminated.
"I think we've met all the
county's requests," he said.
The current proposal had
been advertised as a six-unit
single-family condominium.
District 5 Commissioner
Cindy Meadows observed
that the development was
platted as a condominium,
but that the buildings ap-
peared to be single-family

She feared that the BCC

Local attorney Gary Vor-

no subdivision of land."
Dean Burgis, the devel-

that the setbacks for the

The Humane


Society protests


Destin shark


tournament


In response to the killing
of an 844-pound mako shark
in the shark division of the
annual Destin Fishing Ro-
deo earlier this month, the
Humane Society of the Unit-
ed States (HSUS) is urging
Rodeo leaders to perma-
nently end the event's shark
division.
At the request of local cit-
izens, including Gail Powell,
:of Santa Rosa Beach, and
conservationist M.C. Davis,
the HSUS sent a letter to
Destin Fishing Rodeo, Inc.
Director Helen o'ni lldsonii
asking that the event be
permanently st pp'1l,
In the letter, Dr. John
Grandy, HSUS senior vice
president for Liiltde and
habitat ictti'contm. said,
"Spericai,- such as the
shark division of the Destin
Fishing Rodeo are preying
bn the destructive reputa-
tion that sharks achieved
in the movie "Jaws," while
promoting the idea that the
lives of sharks don't mat-
ter."
The Shark Specialist
Group of the International


Union for Conservation of
Nature and Natural Re-
sources (IUCN), recently
raised the level of concern
for mako sharks to "vulner-
able," which is defined as
"threatened with global ex-
tinction."
Last year, in a break for'
sharks living off the coast of
Destin, the Destin History
and Fishing Museum voted
unanimously to discontin-
ue the Destin Deep Water
Shark Tournament. The
HSUS hopes that the lead-
ers of Destin Fishing Rodeo,
Inc. will decide to show the
same forward-thinking be-
havior and cancel the Shark
Division for good.
"With shark populations
in steep decline, there can
be no justification for con-
tinuing to conduct a Shark
Division in the Destin Fish-
ing Rodeo," says Black
Creek conservationist M.C.
Davis. "It's time to stop glo-
rifying the needless killing
of sharks and start giving
these magnificent ocean
predators the respect they
deserve."

search


of new director


By JEFFREY POWELL
The search is on for a new
director of the South Walton
County Mosquito Control
District (SWMCD).
"The state would like for
us to fill the position within
six months," said SWMCD
Chairman John Magee. "We
hope to have the new direc-
tor before that mark."
Magee's comments came
during the SWMCD's Oc-
tober 23, regular board
meeting. Tuesday's meet-
ing was the first time the
board has met since former
director Gary D'Andrea's
contract was allowed to ex-
pire. D'Andreas. last day
on the job was September


28. One of the reasons cit-
ed for letting D'Andrea go
was that some of the board
members felt he was over-
paid. D'Andrea made over
$116,000 per year.
The salary for the next
director is to fall some-
where between $48,000 and
$68,000.(
Over- the last two weeks
there have been nine ap-
plications received by the
SWMCD. The director's po-
sition is being advertised on
Monster.com, through the
Florida Mosquito Control
Association and the Ameri-
can Mosquito Control Asso-
ciation.
Applicants are required
to have a bachelor of science


degree and two years of mos-
quito control experience.
"It is important for us to
fill this position in a timely
manner," said Magee. "The
board is not intended to
oversee the day-to-day op-
erations of this organiza-
tion. Our objective is to put
together a contract that is
good for the district."
Commissioners also dis-
cussed the possibility of add-
ing two more members to
the board. The state prefers
organizations with a bud-
get -near $2 million to have
five members. Commission-
ers tabled the discussion to
have more time to examine
the issue.

program designed to recog-
nize individuals who dem-
onstrate their excellence
in seven measured compo-


nents, including experience,
education, professional
development, professional
contributions, association
membership, community
involvement, and technical
competencies. A board of
review, consisting of mem-
bers of the fire and emer-
gency services profession,
academia, and municipal
agencies, reviews each ap-
plication and recommends
successful candidates for
designation to the commis-
sion. Talbert was formerly

of Titusville for seven and a
half years, and joined SWFD
in April 2007.

All such proposals will be
required to include "at least
three separate uses, includ-
ing both residential and ac-
tive recreation."
Nonresidential land uses
will be limited to 15 percent
of the development area.
Commercial and office insti-
tutional uses within the de-

At the-Oct. 23 BCC meet-
ing, Santa Rosa Beach resi-
dent Bill Bard urged the
commissioners not to ap-
prove this amendment.
Bard saw the 12 units
per-acre maximum that
will be possible with this
ordinance as a big problem.
"This is more urban sprawl
not managed growth," Bard
asserted.
Bard was opposed to Wal-
ton County trying to use a

'designed for shopping cen-
ters as a means to create
affordable neighborhoods.

to start with a residential
land-use category for the
purpose. He also had seri-
ous concerns about VMUCs
being expanded from major
routes to additional road-
ways.
"Chat Holley will prob-
ably become another strip
mall," Bard warned.
"We do not want strip
malls," Meadows responded,
adding that the maximum
floor area requirement (0.5)
and impervious surface ra-
tio requirement (0.75) that
are part of the ordinance
will prevent this from hap-
pening.
"This will actually require
mixed uses on one site... this
is pnore teeth than we've
ever had," she added.
Meadows said that the
provision for a higher den-
sity is necessary in order for
affordable housing to be cre-
ated.
Engineer Nolan Baker
spoke in favor of the ordi-
nance, commenting that


part of the concept is to have
residents' day-to-day needs

Bard complained that

Meadows responded that
a land-use, amendment will
be required for properties to
be reclassified as VMUCs,
and that a compatibility re-
view will be required.
Anita Page advocated a
study of "the whole VMU sit-
uation," so that people buy-
ing property would know in
advance "what is the VMU
area."
Following a motion by
District 4 Commissioner
Sara Comander for approv-
al of the amendment, it was
approved 4-0, with all com-
missioners present voting in
favor.

Leigh Grantham and John
Forrester, president of a
local Regions Bank, which
co-sponsored the meeting.
Forrester told the 730-plus
attendees that "the basic

troduced the governor, say-
ing that Crist has "removed

face toward a Panhandle.
"The governor is leading the

Sansom.
Crist spoke very briefly,
having earlier compliment-
ed northwest Florida, which
he called "victory lane" for
his election. Taking up the


subject of the upcoming
property tax amendment,
Crist told the crowd, "Get
ready to vote yourselves a
nice fat tax cut," adding that
"we don't work for the insur-
ance industry, we work for

been a very good year," say-
ing that he had left a writ-

DRAMA FROM FRONT


Goodrum had originally re-
quested.
Lehman then filed anoth-
er appeal and the work on
the production was stopped
again until a committee
could be formed by Walton
County Superintendent
Carlene Anderson. "That
committee should have a de-
cision by this week," Ewing
told the Herald.
In the meantime, a sec-
ond play was chosen, called
"They All Must Die," a kind
of Scooby-Do-style who-dun-
it, says Goodrum. Another
teacher had used the play
for their class, suggested it
to Goodrum and felt it was
safe. Ewing began and then
halted the second play in its
second week of rehearsal. "I
got wind this play was go-
ing to be appealed as well,
because one of the charac-
ters mentions voodoo in the
play," he said.
Ewing is no stranger to
this kind of controversy. An
educator for over 30 years,
he faced a similar situation
in Okaloosa county schools
in 1997. "We had to come
up with a manuscript of all
possible scenarios," he said.
"That action ended with the
vice-principal of Niceville
being removed from his
post."
Unsubstantiated rumors
also began appearing on lo-
cal south Walton message
boards and between stu-
dents on campus, linking
the complaint to a parent
who believed their child had
been miscast in the original
play, supposedly the same
person that had previously
complained about the omis-
sion of group-prayer at the
high school football games.
Ewing said he had also
heard the rumors. "I have
heard that this situation
started because a student
had religious differences
to the material being pro-
duced, as well as some of
our citizens being upset over
the removal of prayer before
our football games. I want
to commend our superinten-


dent on the courageous de-
cision to enforce federal law
and institute a moment of
silence before the games in-
stead. That way, those who
believe in prayer can pray
for the safety of our players.
Those who do not can medi-
tate on their safety or reflect
on our players safety before
the game and no one gets of-
fended."
Ewing says these mat-
ters have been put through
the court systems again and
again in the past. "I call it the
'sleeping-dragon syndrome.'
This issue lays around
sleeping until someone stirs
it awake and then the sleep-
ing dragon on the other side
awakes and both sides grow
and grow until they meet at
a head. Unfortunately for
our students, their battle
ground usually turns out to
be school grounds as well.
Then the kids get hurt dur-
ing the battle between the"
adults."
When asked about an
objection due to religious
differences, Goodrum re-
sponded, "I would always
find another project that
would not clash with that
student's belief system, that
would showcase their talent
and let them be involved in
a separate process to hone
and showcase their dramat-
ic skills. So, no one would
feel left out."
All attempts to contact
Lehman, per voice mail at
home and the number listed
on the complaint, by the Her-
ald have gone unreturned.
However, Ewing has spoken
with the complainants and
said, "They are a very nice
couple, deeply religious and
no, they do not have children
in the school system, but
they are fearful that some
of the subject matter in the
first play could be harm-
ful to the children." Ewing
maintains that, profession-
ally, he must maintain neu-
trality in the issue, but per-
sonally, "I found both plays
to be humorous and fine
for the students to preform


once the adult subject mat-
ter was toned down, which
we do with all our plays."
Jenny Dargavell, Russ
Gilbert and Mike Griffin are
all parents to drama stu-
dents at South Walton High
School, support Goodrum
and spoke openly about the
issues upsetting them as
parents.
Griffin said, "Everyone
who has an opinion on this
matter needs to come forth
and speak out. Don is a great
teacher and he is just trying
to do his job. The rights of
my child and everyone else's
child is to get the best edu-
cation possible and have the
right of free speech.".
Dargavell says she was
unaware of the issue un-
til her son came home and
said, "Well, I guess we won't
get to do the play."
Dargavell's fears grew as
she began to understand the
process of filing complaints
in the district. "One of the
biggest issues I have is that
anyone can just walk off the
street and into the board of
education and shut down a
production or remove a book.
Under this microscope, our
kids won't be able to perform
material from Shakespeare
to Disney." Dargavell says
she has positive feeling for
the school board, "We want
to embrace the school board
and we want to help them
fix this flawed policy, but
our kids are getting a real
lesson in civics, as well as
drama." Dargavell says her
ultimate goal is "to be able
to do this show at the the
school and change the com-
plaint process."
As far as the reason for
the complaint, Dargavell
says she is stumped as to
why someone would file the
complaint, "People don't just
wake up one morning and
want to ban a play. I have to
wonder where it started."
Gilbert agreed. "I have
to question the motives be-
hind this complaint. This is
a great concern to me and
should be a concern to the
community at large. I'm
concerned about the process,
that someone on the outside


and doesn't have a child
in the system so far as we
know, can stop a production
on a play. I have faith in our
school board. They are all
good people and I know our
superintendent truly cares
about our children, but we
need to rewrite the policy
after this incident. What
if someone had protested
'Beauty and the Beast' last
year, because Belle fell in
love with an animal who
was under a spell?"
Christa Whittaker, Fort
Walton Beach High School
drama teacher and District
One International Thespian
Society (ITS) district chair,
has been facing a similar
situation in regards to her
department producing "To
Kill A Mockingbird" and
whether to stay true to the
playwright and include a ra-
cial slur.
In an exclusive interview
with the Herald, Whittaker
said, "We are going to go
on with our show as writ-
ten. We have found a solu-
tion and a compromise .for
the audience that I cannot
divulge at this time. I will
also be notifying the audi-
ence every night before the
show that if this language
is upsetting to them, then
they have the choice to stay
or leave. I've e-mailed all
the drama teachers under
my district and encouraged
them to work closely with
their principals on these
issues. Ask your principal
that, if and when this hap-
pens, 'how are we going to
handle it?' A rewriting of
policy may be in order."
Susan Watson, a local
representative for the Amer-
ican Civil Liberties Union
(ACLU), believes schools
need to stay strong and write
policy that may alleviate the
crisis at South Walton. Wat-
son says, "Schools have a lot
of leeway when they deal
with their own curriculum.
If I was a parent of a student
at this school, I would ques-
tion who these people are
and what are their motives
in disrupting my child's ed-
ucation."
Goodrum said, "I believe


"BLITHE SPIRIT" .is
anything but blithe in south
Walton. The whimsical play
has been used countless
times in high school produc-
tions throughout the nation.


we need a rewriting of the
policy, but I will follow Mr.
Ewings' lead. He is a won-
derful person to work for
and we both know we only
have the kid's best inter-
est at heart in this matter.
Now, though, when I choose
a script not only do I have to
decide if there is anything in
it that would offend me, but
I have to also try and figure
out if anyone else who is
deemed a reasonable person
would find it offensive as
well. Personally, I am a very
tolerant person and I believe
tolerance is what is needed
here. Tolerance of different
beliefs. I mean, that's what
America is all about, isn't
it?"
Ewing said the flaw in the
process lies in the fact that,
"What if our students work
on a play for two months
through the appeal process
and then the final ruling is
against them? They would
be crushed after putting
all that time and effort into

Since the
beginning
of the cul-
tural revo-
lution in -
Wa lton
County,
more and
m o r e
:e vents
:have come to the
:area. With the sea-
:son coming to an end
for another year,
:more and more tour-
,ists have made their
way to the Emerald
Coast.

ArtsQuest, the West Indies
:Market, the Seabreeze Jazz
Festival, the Destin Festival
of the Arts and other cultural
events, have showered this
.area over the past 10-15
years. It has been a constant
weekend retreat for locals
and tourists, finding their
Way to top name concerts and
international festivals of art-
ists.
In April of 2008, the
Seabreeze Jazz Festival will
be hosting their 10th annual
Seabreeze Jazz Festival. Re-
turning once again to Gulf
Place, the annual eventi as
brown from a mere 500 in
attendance in 1998, to more
than 15,000 throughout the
weekend event.
L Being the most-attended
event in Walton County for
three years in-a-row, the
Seabreeze Smooth Jazz Fes-


tival has attracted thousands
from all over the world to the
four-day event. Plans are
now being made for an even
bigger festival in 2008, add-
ing another day to the event
and a free Wendesday con-
cert on the beach as a token
of appreciation from WSBZ
to Walton County.
For lovers of the fine arts,
Walton County has produced
some of the best art shows
and festival in the United
States. Artists from all over
the world have made their
way to this area and have
called some of the shows like
the Cultural Arts
Association's ArtsQuest and
the Hilltop Productions/
Rosemary Beach West Indies
Market and Holiday Market,
some of their top shows.
Other events like the
Tunes by the Dunes Concert,
and the Coastal Wine Tour,
have helped transform the
once small dirt road of CR-
30A, to a cultural mecca for
artists and art lovers. In less
than 20 years, an artist has
not quite made the artistic
scene, until he has shown at
one of the many galleries or
shows that call Walton
County home.


From- April
to November,
the events
along the
Il[PI S coastline
t bring in
thousands of
tourists each
te J -/ i season. With
the assis-
tance of the
Tourist De-
velopment
Center, more
and more have made their
vacation destination along
the Emerald Coast, in Octo-
ber and November.
Despite the event season
coming to an end, there are
several more events that will
be making their appearance.
November events include:
Nov. 2 and 3 Mountain
Film Festival, Watercolors .
Nov. 2 and 3- Seeing Red
Wine Festival, Seaside
Nov. 10 Via Colori Art Fes-
tival, Seaside
Nov. 9-11, Baytowne Wharf

No. 23 Lighting of the tree
ceremony, Rosemary Beach
Nov. 24, Brbakfast with
Santa, Cottages for Children
Benefit Auction and Holiday
Market, Rosemary Beach
Nov. 24 Lighting of the tree
ceremony, Seaside.'

So before you settle in for
that long winter nap and
think that the streets along
the beach just dry up until
March, think again! There is
something for everyone just
waiting to be discovered
throughout Walton County
over the next month and
much more to look forward to
come 2008.

PROPOSAL

amount of green space pro-
posed for Toscana exceeds
that of the adjacent neigh-
borhoods.
A compatibility expert
certified by the American
Institute of Planners testi-
fied on behalf of the appli-
cant, stating that the project
is compatible with the adja-
cent neighborhoods, which
include residential neigh-
borhoods Sea Nest and an
unrecorded subdivision.
Attorney Ken Goldberg,
representing the county,
asked if the proponents were
saying that Toscana was a
single-family or multifamily
proposal.
"This is a multifamily
development...made to look
like a single-family devel-
opment so it is compatible,"
Burgis responded.
Burgis -remarked that the
county had approved a num-
ber of other similar projects
with detached structures on
one unsubdivided lot.
District 1 Commissioner
Scott Brannon asked how
many units would be pos-
sible, according to county
code, with the lot subdivided
and single-family home set-
backs applied for each of the
six buildings.
County planner Jason
Bryant responded that three
units might be possible un-
der those conditions.
"There is nothing in this
code that allows you to 'con-
dominiumize' a lot," Bryant
also testified.
Neighborhood spokesper-
son Dennis Riddle called the
six-unit proposal "just not
compatible."
"Height is a big factor,"
he noted, explaining that
surrounding homes are 38
feet tall or less, and these
units are proposed to be 46
feet in height.
Riddle recommended lim-
iting the development to
three units and height to 38.
feet, like the surrounding
neighborhood.
Anita Page commented
that "condominium" refers
only to the type of ownership,


FROM FRONT


and that setbacks should
correctly be applied accord-
ing to the type of structure.
The county recognizes only
three types of structures,
she noted, single-family, du-
plex or multifamily.
Brannon and District 3
Commissioner Larry Jones
both stated that in their
opinion compatibility is di-
rectly related to density.
Brannon observed that
the density of the proposal
was considerably greater
than the surrounding neigh-
borhoods---and that limiting
the number of units to four
would make it more compat-
ible.
"This is a shoe horn in a
small place," Meadows ob-
served, also calling for the
proposal to be scaled back to
three or four units.
District 4 Commissioner
Sara Comander added ad-
equacy of parking spaces
to the list of concerns. She
called the design "good" but
also called for a scaling back
of units.

A motion by Brannon to
deny the application was
approved unanimously.
